Pro-Trump mob storms the US Capitol, touting 'Stop the Steal'

"In washington censoring social media. Content and corporate. America speaks out leading today's news. Congress has formerly confirmed the election of joe biden as the sixth president of the united states after rebuffing efforts by a small group of republicans to object to the acceptance of electoral college winds for biden in arizona and pennsylvania. The house and senate began the process of counting electoral college votes wednesday afternoon but the preceding was interrupted for about six hours by a mob that stormed the capitol building. The count resumed at about eight pm. But that was after a woman was shot and killed by capitol police while three other people died for medical emergencies. Day or historic day for american democracy. Maybe a bit of both while the mob delayed presidential certification and lead doorbell violence. It didn't stop the process or institutions and lawmakers. Were able to reconvene later that night. Some other happenings. The second of two runoff elections in georgia was called in the democrats favor handing 'binding control of the senate and solidifying his economic policy platform. Both jon ossoff and rough high warnock lead their opponents by more than the point five percentage point threshold for a recount triggering. A blue wave to descend on washington. How did the market respond. Trading was largely unaffected by the chaos at the us capitol and ended the such mostly higher on expectations of more robust stimulus. Package tech fell back. The possibility of antitrust legislation though futures linked to the major averages all powered higher overnight. I think the reason the markets are flunks. Is it's not going to change. The transition of power said tom lee of fun strut global advisors the ten year treasury yield also broke above one percent for the first time since the pandemic began in late march sparking a rally in the banking sector in other news. The disarray seen in washington. Also shift online. As both twitter and facebook suspended president trump from posting on their sites it marked the social media industry strongest actions to date to rein in controversial content citing risks of violence and repeated and severe violations of their policies. Twitter which luck. Trump's account for twelve hours also warned that further violations of its rules could lead to a permanent suspension. What happened the platforms have been labeling election related tweets by trump since november which made declarations of victory and claim. There was a plot to steal votes. The final straw appeared to be a video circulated by trump in which he described those who showed up for the rally as very special called the election. Fraud hewlett and said. He understands how the protesters feel. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it. Especially the other side he added. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order thought bubble. Censorship concerns over violence were raised during a recent. Us senate commerce committee. Hearing when twitter's dorsey was asked how supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei of iran was allowed to glorify bloodshed in many of his tweets without eighty tc downs his response we did not find those violate our terms of service because we considered them which is part of speech of world leaders in concert with other countries speech against our own people or countries on citizens we believe is different and can cause more immediate harm outlook.

The service leaves virtually all bought a ration- decisions up to individuals collects almost no data about users and doesn't use content recommendation algorithms it shows users all the posts from everyone they follow in reverse chronological order. However many that have immigrated to the platform have continued posting on twitter.

Roundtable and national farmers union are calling for the peaceful transfer following the turmoil seen the us capital. Since the start of the week we've already heard warnings. Prominent company leaders have cautioned about challenging election results and undermining economic stability motivated in part by the desire to get members of congress back to focusing on repairing economy. that's been shredded by the pandemic. They're saying the insurrection that followed the president's remarks today is appalling and an affront to the democratic values we hold dear as americans there must be a peaceful transition of power said blackstone.

While apple's tim cook said it marked a sad and shameful chapter and called for those responsible to be held to account the head of the national association of manufacturers a group representing fourteen thousand companies in the us even called on vice president mike pence to seriously consider invoking the twenty fifth amendment to remove trump from office response. Even though i totally disagree with the outcome of the election and the facts bear me out. Nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on january twentieth. I've always said we will continue our fight to ensure that only illegal votes were counted. President trump tweeted through the account.

I think Republicans heard very loud and clear from Texans that they don't want the pro government pro socialist agenda. The Democrats have to offer. They wanted approach family, pro Texas Pro Liberty agenda, and that's what Republicans alike. However, however, we have every major metropolitan area in Texas and county, particularly Harris County under the boot. Of Democrats. So how in the world you fix that? This is true.

Election 2020 Analysis: Bethany Mandel, Ron Kampeas

"Mandel is an editor writer and podcast at ricochet and online hub. For conservative conversation she's also a rising social media star and conservative columnist. Who has garnered quite a bit of attention. In recent months decrying the government overreach of quarantine restrictions and going from being a never trumper in two thousand sixteen to supporting the president's twenty twenty reelection in a recent column in the forward she talks about why pollsters trying to project the election's outcome got it so wrong once again but don't expect this conversation to be a breakdown of methodology and shifting demographics. Her explanation is much simpler than that and she will explain bethany. Welcome to people of the pot. I think you so much for having me. I'm sorry for the puppy noise. You might hear in the background okay. Now before we begin. I want to remind our listeners. Ajc is a nonpartisan five. Oh one c. Three not for profit entity that neither endorses nor opposes candidates for elective office. So anything i say or ask or challenge really is in pursuit of an explanation. Because i do want our audience to listen so bethany for those who did not read your column. Tell us why. Pollsters predicted a blue wave that we did not see in last week's election so i think that there's going to be a lot of explanations that become clear over the next few months there might be problems with the way that they call people how they call people but i noticed anecdotally and i was saying for months beforehand the most simple explanation for why i thought that it would be extremely close or why the president would garner. Reelection is just because people were lying because they didn't feel comfortable telling the truth and when they would get a call who you voted for from a stranger because you don't actually know who upholstery is. And you can't confirm their identity on the phone When they get a call from pollster hi. I'm just curious for you're voting for. They're not going to tell you on the phone who they're voting for. And in my column i give a story that i thought was really illustrative of my thinking on it coming up prior to the election. Which was i have a. I have a girlfriend who lives in a swing state. i think it's north carolina. And i asked her at the outset of our conversation who e-voting for just sort of in passing and she said. I am still undecided. I don't know what to do and we had a very long conversation. And what we're really talking about was actually. She was doing a conference that got cancelled by a social media. Mob and people were falsely accused of racism. Yada yada and the entire six months of work that she did for the conference just went up in smoke and and it was cancelled and so we were talking about that. And i said this is the kind of stuff that makes people vote for trump. Because he talks about this. Like social media mobs the cancel culture in all these things and i was kind of laughing about how this experience would make her into a trump voter over the course of our conversation. I said yeah. I'm voting for trump this summer on. I never thought i would have done that for years ago. And she was like wait. A second you are and i forgot that. She doesn't follow me on social media. She doesn't know. Sort of where i fall and i said yeah my buddy for trump and she was like oh i am too. I mailed ballots in weeks ago. And she's a friend of mine and we were having an hour long conversation and it was only after i told her that i was voting for president trump that she admitted that she was as well. And so we finished texting. And i looked at my husband and i said the polls were wrong. If this woman who i've known for five years didn't feel comfortable telling me who she was voting for until i told her there's no way we'll no much was made that there were fewer undecided voters in this year's polls but also sounds like what you're saying is that there was even smaller number because those who said they were undecided or at least some of them voted for trump right or they were lying and they said they were voting for biden instead. I i think that that's definitely a possibility as well. Okay now why would they have said president biden. What been the reasoning there. That's the safe answer in this. Cancel culture environment that you know voting for vice. President biden was stackable incorrect dancer. But i think that I think that a lot of people probably unfit apply. I'm curious if you've gotten any feedback from people who read your column and said how dare you call us liars absolutely. Not every single person understood. Even i as someone who works in the media until the eleventh hour did not want to say i was voting for president trump. Because i knew that every time he does something stupid from then on out people with throw that calm back in my face and say this is what you signed on for whatever reality. I'm like. I signed a deal with the devil and i knew i was signing a deal with the devil and i'm not not raw about him. I'm not maga- it's it's an unfortunate situation and it is what it is something that really frustrated me in the wake of biden's election was people sort of saying koumba. Let's all come together and we're were you three years ago. Where were you last year. Why didn't you speak up for the covington. Boys and pete buttigieg was one of the people who was saying it and your staffer. Literally making lists of trump administration employees to blacklist them and to strip them of their livelihood and i think people across the spectrum have different opinions of people who worked in the administration. I know a million of them and they understood the deal that the that the devil that they made to and they were trying to uniformly serve our country and to mediate. Trump's trump. Nece and i think they did a great job and i am appreciative of the work that they did in every single department they worked in and they made it possible for us to come out of the last four years. Fine we're fine as a country and pete bridges people. His former staff are making lists of all of these people and pitas coming out. And saying you know. Let's all come together. I'm like okay. Put your money where your mouth is and publicly denounced what your staff are doing. Where is that being reported. I don't know where it's being reported. It's called the trump accountability project. And if you google it. I'm sure only conservative media are covering it because that's how it is. They had a website called trump accountability project. And it's time for people to put their money where their mouth is a little bit on this and no one is and michelle. Obama tweeted something the other day. That was you know. Half of americans who voted for him are x y. You know the whole litany of and this is not. I don't know how you move forward. When that when the former first lady is impugning the motives of half of the americans that voted for for trump. And you're not. You're not voting for racism. You're not voting for you. Know i think. I think that's a really simplistic way of looking at things. And it's also a really divisive and toxic way and if biden wants to actually move forward in a kun-bae off fashion say something about what michelle obama tweeted now. I want to reiterate what you said at the beginning. Bethany that this is just your theory. it's based on anecdotal evidence. There are many reasons why the polls might not have panned out this year. But let me ask you this. Not all pollsters work for media some work for politicians who are trying to assess what their constituents want. Do you think people understand that. Not being truthful about their preferences might undermine the whole democratic process. Do you believe that so. That's an interesting question. Because in some part it undermines the thesis of my piece because we saw that the internal polling that was done by campaigns was actually far superior to that of the media companies. And i think that people are more apt to trust a cloister that is not in the media because people don't trust the media dot readily and that distrust has been well earned by the media but the internals that we can gather that the biden campaign was getting told them to go to georgia and it seemed like a crazy idea and they were right to do so. So i i think that the internal polls that campaigns had were better than the media hat by. I don't think it undermines the democratic process because is not essential to the democratic process. It just it gives campaigns some idea of where they should be focusing and what their messaging should be but overall the democratic process is completely hinged upon votes. And that's really what counts at the end of the day well bethany. Thank you so much for. Your thoughts really intriguing thoughts. I really appreciate that. And i hope our listeners. Think about it i hope. I hope you've given them food for thought. Thanks

Donald Trump is finished, but will 'Trumpism' prevail?

"It's been more than a week since the us presidential election joe biden of course has claimed victory whereas the president is yet to concede defeat but when donald trump eventually leaves office the question. We have to ask ourselves is is trumpism. Really finished after all the media conventional wisdom the new york times washington. Post the major networks. Cnn msnbc all that conventional wisdom is that the twenty twenty election represents a repudiation of trumpism and what's trump luckily to do after he leaves office well for more. Let's turn to patrick. J buchanan senior adviser to president reagan nixon and ronald reagan. Pat has been a regular fixture in america's opinion pages and cable television shows for generations. Ninety ninety two and ninety six pat buchanan ran for the presidential nomination of his party. The republican party on america first platform pass walking back to you between the lines. Good to your tom now. Let's start with the election itself to spotted trifecta of crises health economic racial the us congressional and presidential contests were very tight. How do you account for that. I think there were tight for this reason. The covid virus which hammered us in march and april and then all during the summer and full took the lodge. That's two hundred and thirty thousand americans and they induced an economic decline unrivalled since the great depression. And then you have to racial turmoil in the country. And the wake of the killing of george floyd in minneapolis riots. And and things like that. So he's really damaged trump in the eyes of the public and his administration and normally they would've killed any presidential candidate. But i will say that in the fall. When trump was further behind he basically one mechanic team won the battle against biden. It was surging at the end of the campaign but he did not get over the top or at least so far so i think what you can say is trump and trumpism won the campaign. They lost the election because of the burdens. They had to terry which were too happy to cross the finish line. And let's not forget that in the late up to the election the metric conventional wisdom the polls the pundits. They predicted a democratic sweep. A blue wave washing the republicans out of power capturing the senate and delivering an alleged democratic congressional majority if the democrats did indeed have a clean sweep of the congress and the white house what would radical progressive in the american takes. What would that have made if you had nancy. Pelosi in control of the house and chuck schumer and control. The should i which looks less and less likely now and preston biden into white house. Biden's problem would be the tremendous pressure from the progressive left wing of this party to impose his leftist agenda. The party home to the country in the first two years of his administration. And i think it would be virtually impossible biden to resist the democrats cheap to kill the filibuster. Which would eliminate the ability of the republicans to stop their agenda and we would be off to the races with medicare for all the green new deal statehood for puerto rico statehood for dc. Defunding the cops. Pack the supreme court the whole left wing democratic agenda. They would try to ram through with fifty one votes. In the senate and biden frankly would be restraining force because republicans wouldn't be able to do it if they lost the filibuster in the senate which is what. Barack obama urged the democrats to take away if they win the senate okay now bought and has pasta to sydney electoral college. Votes needed to win the white house now given that it's very hard to prove widespread electoral fraud pat. Why want trump just accept defeat. Here's trump is demanding that he be allowed to play out last play of the deal. Because i think he feels he has been treated horribly by the democrats and the liberals in the press and he's not gonna do them a favour. He's got a right to make sure. The counselor made and certain things happen by certain dates. He's not going to speed up the transition. It's not gonna be a pleasant transition at all. He's going to treat them the way they felt. They treated him when he came in with the russia investigation and all the rest of it. So i think what you're getting is. Trump is looking at upon this if it succeeds is a hostile takeover of the government of the united states. And he is acting to resisted with every legal constitutional weapon. He has so it's This is not a cordial country power at all. Okay but with dany. Before the nineteen sixty presidential election between richard nixon and john f kennedy. That was very taught. There was a lot of speculation about electoral fraud in texas and illinois. And that of course benefited. The democrats won that election now. Apologies for the very scratchy. Sound quality of these vintage news report from sixty years ago. but he's nixon. Your boss pat here. He is at four. Am at republican headquarters. After the election conceding. Defeat to and and results shows come in if the present trend continues If mr kennedy and senator kennedy will be the next president of the united states senators kennedy now. And i want you know that. Certainly this trend has continued and he does become our next president that he will have my. That's richard nixon conceding. Defeat john f. kennedy in nineteen sixty pat buchanan. Why can't trump do a nixon accept defeat graciously that at four am gathering. My wife was present. She worked for richard nixon and the nineteen sixty campaign and travel. The country would and the point is that was a different time in a different country. That america's today america's bitterly divided and one of the contributing factors is the is the belief correct in my view that donald trump was denied. Not only a good transition but donald trump was investigated by the fbi and during the transition. They went after his state of the fbi did and they had a two year investigation beach. Kim they try to defeat him then they tried to overthrow him. And i think trump feels this and he says i established nothing. They can go. I mean they can go too far as i'm concerned and we're going to run this old way out and make sure every ballot is counted and all the towns are accurate. And whether or not we're going to go to court and exercise our rights and we're not going to pretend otherwise that this is a pleasant for easy transfer of power this was a hostile takeover and trump's view. I mean they're campaign run against him former first lady. Michelle obama is already talking about the house and he could and racism and the rest endemic pain in what he come folks voted for. So i think look you gotta divided country and there's no sense pretending otherwise and trump is not gonna gauge any pretense.

"blue wave" Discussed on WTMJ 620

"Talk and text line. All right, As I argued yesterday, 2020 20 election is a lot different than the 2000 election. I did not think Al Gore's challenging the results in Florida was good for the country. But at least there it was one state. If somehow Al Gore could have flipped the results of Florida he becomes the president of the United States wasn't ultimately able to do that, but But at least there was a there was a battle that was going on in one state. That is not where we are right now. President Trump his His role to re election is wrote to re election is almost impossible because it's not just Hey, if I can convince people that you know something funny went on in Georgia. I'm going to be able to win the election. No, because Then you gotta worry about Pennsylvania and Nevada and Michigan and all these other states. I'm just saying that in order for the president to be able to stave off the inevitable it seems to me you've got to convince you gotta win battles all over. You've got to convince people you know, in in Wisconsin that we need to do a redo and things like that. It's It is, as a practical matter it is, and I think it's an insurmountable barrier. In addition, there are always going to be. I think what I'm gonna describe as irregularities in voting voting is is not a perfect sort of thing. And the fact that you have states you know all the different states that do things differently from All right. You know when when Khun Ballots begin to be counted to know how long you know? Do you have to return the absentee ballot? And so when can you start voting to? When can you register? Can you register 30 days in advance? Up his registration cut off two weeks. Can you register on the same day like you do in Wisconsin. There's always going to be differences, and that's going to lead to discrepancies. But at the same time in a case like this this election in 2020 you have You have tens of thousands of votes that would have to be thrown out in multiple states in orderto have any chance of swinging the election or at least getting a redo, which is maybe the best case scenario. Now I've I've listened to a lot of the stuff that's out there and I have to to say I understand that there are people Who don't want to see President Trump lose get it. Nobody likes to see their candidate loose and I have so you don't have to. I've gone to the dark corners of the Internet and I've looked at it some of the stuff that's out there and some of the allegations and you put it together, and in most cases, it's It's like people screaming well, that this should have been done better or this could have happened or that could have happened, But it's least so far. I don't know that I've seen any examples of what you could establish to be a even probable cause. Not necessarily proof beyond a reasonable doubt, but even probable cause to believe that there was any sort of widespread fraud which occurred and it's I've tried to explain to a couple of my friends who are upset with the results of this election. You know if you want to believe that the election was stolen from President Trump How do you account for the fact that Democrats underperformed all across this country? Remember, we were being told that there was gonna be this blue wave and the Democrats were gonna pick up, you know, 15, maybe 20 seats in the House of representatives and and they ended up losing five. There's going to be a blue wall and wave and all these things Republican senators, we're going to get tossed out and The way it looks now, as you've got 50 Republicans 48 Democrats, and then you've got things to run offs going on in Georgia. My only point is, if there's this widespread fraud that's out there designed to take down Republicans. Why didn't reflect itself in the down ballot races that were out there was it on Lee directed at President Trump. And if so, then why, and help? All right. Our number 855612616 20. That's the AC unit mortgage talk and text line. Look, I believe obviously there there needs to be. You need to be convinced that there is a legitimacy to the election. But my question is this. Do you really have you seen any real basis? I'm talking about really basis to believe that whether it was in Wisconsin or Michigan or Arizona or Nevada or Georgia or Pennsylvania or any of these other states. Do we have any real basis for believing that there was widespread fraud? And I'm not talking about irregularities. There's always going to be some irregularities. But these claims of fraud unless you Khun back up these claims. I don't care who won the election. Who did that? It's not good for democracy, tohave 40 45 48% of the electorate believing that the election was stolen. That wasn't good. It wasn't fair in 2016 when the left took that approach to President Trump and candidly, I don't think it will be good. For the right to take that approach towards Joe Biden when he is sworn in as president, 855612616 20. That's the AC unit mortgage talking text line. Do you believe that it's a yes or no question that there was widespread voter fraud, which threw the election from Donald Trump? To Joe by 85561616 20. I'm just here to tell you I just haven't seen anything that convinces me that that went on again. If you want to argue, Okay, this procedure wasn't perfectly followed. All right. I'm willing to give you that in certain cases, but that's not the same as saying widespread fraud. The election was stolen. We discussed next stick around. Just Wagner is right around the corner. Thiss isn't the start. Before I got here. I started training and before that I did something to my back. But my first move was Athletico physical therapy That's right, eventually end up So why not start there? I mean, my therapist immediately found the source of my pain.

A record number of women will serve in Congress

"Of uncertainty followed Tuesday's vote. One thing definitely stood out, and that is a record number of GOP women who have been voted into congressional seats. Let's get into it. With our own Rebecca Greenfield. She wrote the story. She leads diversity coverage here at Bloomberg. She joins us on the phone, as does Bloomberg BusinessWeek editor Jill Weber. She he's on the Axis line in Brooklyn. So let's set it off. Set it up with you. I mean, there's obviously we're focusing on the outcome. But there again a lot of moving parts to this tons of other storylines and the blue wave. There was so much anticipation of And it remains to be determined if that will end up taking it out. Maybe, but regardless of that there was something of a red fortress. And the most dramatic part to me with this note that you know Rebecca hit in her story about the number of GOP women in Congress actually reaching a record. How significant was that, Rebecca? Because, you know, the other thing that you're saying here is that they had very little GOP official support. Yeah, I would say was, you know many way I don't want to overstate what happened. Republicans. The men will have 32 members heading to converse, at least as of me right now, Alfa enough that they're a record number of women heading to Congress this year, which I think The huge storyline in the mid term, But nobody seems to be backing out now, so there is a record number of women both party like together the parties, But yet the GOP just have much left gender diversity is on the Democrats. D'oh. Andi, so their record breaking number as much smaller, but they didn't break the record that cycle, and I do think that is notable.

"Race is still too close to call waiting for numbers from Alaska, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. President Trump claiming that if legal votes are counted, he's the easy winner and the policies got it knowingly wrong. They got it knowingly wrong. We had polls. It was so ridiculous and everybody knew it. At the time.

Senate republican leaders wednesday called on secretary of state. Kathy book varta resign immediately given her role in the state's electoral mayhem twice in the last couple of days. A secretary of state has fundamentally altered. The manner in which pennsylvania's election is being conducted the constantly changing guidance. She's delivered to counties not only directly contradicts the election code language that she sworn to uphold but it also conflicts her own litigation statements and decisions of both the pennsylvania supreme court and the united states supreme court. The secretary told the. Us supreme court on october twenty eight that ballots received after eight pm on november third would be segregated but then she changed the rules on november first and directed counties to canvases ballots as soon as possible. Well in some counties. It's not possible to both segregate and canvas ballots as directed this directive leaves open the possibility that timely votes will be co mingled with votes received after eight pm on election day.

U.S. stocks close sharply higher as markets look beyond Election Day

"This election that is going down to the wire with Joe Biden looking like he may be just about ready to pick up that that victory. Or ring that victory bell. I guess I'm trying to say Doug is really affecting the markets. I wanna get right back to you to talk about stocks today and we're seeing now is this carries over to Asia right? And the fact that this blue wave that everybody was talking about last week failed to materialize, and it looks as though it least at this point that we're going to get A Democrat, Republican controlled Senate. And if you're right, Kathleen, and at this point, you're probably close to being right. If you look at what the data is saying so far on a Biden presidency It yields divided government right and that's a good scenario for the market is one thing that it does. It's reduces the chance that we're going to get any rollback in corporate taxes. At the same time, it kind of reduces the bet for a massive stimulus program. And if you're a fiscal hawk, this is good for you. And if you're the bond market than you have to take out that reflation trade, which is what we saw today, the yield on the 10 year falling 12 basis points and if you go back to, I think where we were in the last 24 hours on the 10 year. A 20 basis point moved from the high to the low. That's like the Fed cutting rates by a quarter point nearly right now in the Tokyo session where it's 75 basis points, we had a rally in US equities today, the S and P up 2.2%.

Don't expect a call in the presidential race anytime soon as Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin process votes

"Election is hanging in the balance, with the outcome dependent on a handful of battleground states, where the results may not be known for days. President Trump has just said that as far as he is concerned, he has won the vote on any attempts to frustrate that victory would be taken to the Supreme Court. He presented no evidence for his claim. This is a major fraud in our nation. We want The law to be used in a proper manner. So we'll be going to the U. S. Supreme Court. We want to all voting to stop. We don't want them to find any ballot, said Four o'clock in the morning and add them to the list. OK, it's It's a very sad It's a very sad moment. To me. This is a very sad moment and We will win this and a CE. Far as I'm concerned. We already have. Mr. Trump hailed his victories in Florida, Ohio and Texas as triumphs and predicted further success in Georgia and North Carolina. He also hinted Pennsylvania would fall to him. Mr Trump's challenger, Joe Biden could still take Arizona on crucial states such as Wisconsin and Michigan in the Midwest. Speaking to supporters, Mr Biden said he still believed he was on track to win the election wouldn't be over until every vote had been counted. You know, we could know the results as early as tomorrow morning, but it may take a little longer. As I've said all along. It's not my place or Donald Trump's place to declare who's won this election. That's the decision of the American people, But I'm optimistic about this outcome. Of the election Now on a knife edge, John. So Opal reports from the White House. America seems to be heading towards a nightmare scenario where, after a divisive campaign, it could still be days or weeks before the country knows who's won its presidential election. A blue wave that Democrats had hoped for failed to materialize. And it all looks on a knife edge. All seems to hinge on the old rust belt states of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Those states have not declared on final results may not come until Friday, and then there's the possibility of legal challenges. This election has resolved nothing so far on North

Democrats are expected to retain control of the House, but there are still races to watch tonight

"At this point, there has been no net change in the balance of the US Senate and to talk about that. We're joined by NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. I su Hey, Ari. Let's take a broad look at the Senate map. Tonight. Republicans have held a few key seats. The Democrats are still hoping to win back in some cases, in some cases that has escaped their grasp tonight. What's the landscape is you see it now? Well, I think it looks like the path to the Democrats. Flipping control of the Senate is getting narrower. And now as the night goes on, Republicans holding onto seats in Texas and Kansas and Lindsey Graham winning reelection in South Carolina. These were always sort of reacher Democratic seats, But we were looking to them a signs of, you know, maybe this would be a big blue wave night. I think we're seeing enough results coming in that We do not believe this is going to be a big blue wave night. Certainly not down the ballots, so The path for Democrats to win a majority is just getting more difficult. We're still looking and waiting for results in Arizona, where Democrats expect to flip a seat there, and in Maine, where incumbent Senator Susan Collins has had probably her toughest reelection yet, but again, even with those two seats, that might not be enough to get Democrats where they need to be at also know we've been watching North Carolina really closely all night. Largely seen as a bellwether state for how the Senate would go Republican incumbent Thom Tillis is leading there. The Associated Press has not called the race. But Republicans I'm talking to tonight feel pretty good at their chances of holding on to a Senate majority, albeit with fewer seats and explain why that matters what the difference is between if we imagine that Biden wins the presidency, which we certainly don't know, But what is the difference between A Democratic president with a democratically controlled Congress and a Democratic president with a Republican controlled Congress. Well, I think what's interesting is if Republicans do retain control of the Senate. In some ways, it will be a status quo on Capitol Hill. We're looking at still split control of Congress. Democrats are still heavily favored toe hold their majority in the house. There's no reason to doubt that will happen, so whoever the next president is, but whether it be Donald Trump or Joe Biden They're likely to be facing a divided Congress. And what is the lesson? Bin of the past decade of divided government is that it's a recipe for gridlock and for a confrontation, and if that is the outcome of this election, I think the idea that we're going to see big sweeping legislative change becomes less and less likely, and on the House side. I interviewed Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday and she was optimistic about Democrats picking up seats tonight so far. Republicans have won a couple of seats they have and they have, and I think that's one of the things I'm looking at. That suggests that this sort of down ballot activity we're seeing is evidence that we're not going to see a big, dramatic Democratic wave tonight. Democrats still forecast to pick up digits seats in the single digits. But you know forecasters, we're going into the night saying they could pick up a CZ. Many is 15 to 20. That seems really unlikely. And we are seeing Democrats losing in some places to Democratic incumbents have already lost in Florida and South Florida, where the party took a bit of a weapon. Tonight. There's Democrats in New York. Max Rose, who was a freshman Democrat who won in the 2018 Democratic wave in a Staten Island district, a district very friendly to Donald Trump. He's down in the polls right now, but That race hasn't been officially called yet either Bellwether races in Virginia, you know, Republican incumbents have been winning their Arkansas so it is definitely not the terrible night that a lot of house Republicans were braced for. And if anything, I think I hear much more optimism coming from Republican strategist and Democrats at this hour, one race that is getting national attention, not because it was competitive, but because of the person who wanted Marjorie Taylor Greene. Somebody who has Made racist statements supported the conspiracy theory Q and on and is now headed to Congress. She is, and I would also note that in one of the Georgia Senate races tonight, Kelly Leffler Well, we can't say she won the runoff because it hasn't been declared. But her conservative opponent, Doug Collins, could seated the race to her, which means she will be the Republican likely going to a runoff in January, and she courted Marjorie Greens endorsement in the Senate race, and I think that speaks to sort of The influence the rising influence that someone like Marjorie Green and her views have inside the Republican Party to The Associated Press is actually just called the Georgia Senate going to run off with you as you were speaking.

"blue wave" Discussed on WGN Radio

"Now from Terry savage dot com and just about everywhere else, So it's a short segment today. If you have a question or a comment, you can call us the 3129817 200 or send us a text. Same number. 3129817 200. Okay, we've got the AP Voter track vote cast. Exit poll and overall 41% of the voters today described the economic conditions in the US as excellent or good. 59% called them not so good. Or poor. What do you make of those numbers? Tuck exactly the division of the country. There are a number of people and companies and stocks that have prospered on DH. There are a lot of people living on the edge of unemployment benefits run out at the end of the year who worry about being evicted or for clothes When those things get those bands get lifted, and they do their scheduled to be. And so that describes America. I want to say something to you that we didn't have a chance to talk. Before we went on here. I want to give you a statistic. A lot of people have commented and said he believed that the stock market with up to 556 150 points all day. What's that saying, and I want to give you because I know that a lot of the financial world people think of my goodness, a Democrat tax increase the Democrats. Changing regulations would be really terrible for the markets and the economy. You know that the economic side of it Well, let me give you a great statistic. The stock market has done significantly better under Democratic era. Then Republicans. I wish I had a TV screen. A graphic put this graphic up. Still have been careful if you took it $7000 investment. Compounded under the Democratic era 56 years of them. We're going way back, 10,000 would have grown to 532,000. $739 called 533,000 and 56 years if you invest it, this is all by the way from the stock trader Dominic if you invested that same $10,000 under the 64 Republican years That 10,000 would have appreciated to 7 108,025. Let's call it 109,000 so 10,000 under the Democrats 533,000 And under the Republicans 109,000. I would have never believed that was true. I know this is a stock trader Dominic Goto Stack Traitors Almanac. Um, The fact is, I never knew I Remembered that the market's done better and democratic years now, maybe that's because stocks beat inflation. Historically, we've had perhaps more inflation, more money, printing and everything with the stock market said today, Wass First of all, thank goodness this election is about to be almost way all said that because I'll get back to work and they'll make a stimulus. And that's what this economy needs. Because too many people are on the way. Okay. So the way it was the market today, So I hear people in the futures are up a couple 100 points already. I hear people say know that you know the what the president has done with eliminating so many regulations and things like that was good for the stock market, and women in And that the capital gains taxes increases that vice president wants would be bad now that he also wants great stimulus, which would be maybe offset those capital gains taxes. The fact is, you can't take capital gains. You have to worry about capital gains taxes if you don't have any game It's okay. If you're making cash, then you're paying part of it. The point of making I get it, I get it. Yeah, we got to get the economy going again and I and this is not a Democrat or a Republican answer. The history says the market's done by five times better under Democrats and Republicans, even though you think of Republicans as the party of business and lower taxes and so forth. It's just a fact. Okay, so history speaking and that the markets speaking today four years ago when Donald Trump won And when it became clear he was going to win because I didn't stand for all of it, But I remember that they like the future's absolutely plummeted. I mean, You know, through the through the floor by more than 1000 points, 2000 points to remember. Exactly. Maybe you was huge. And I was sitting at dinner and I it was before we knew. Trump had won well, but but it was market started tumbling Market kind of knew. I got up from the dinner table and said, Oh, my God, I've got to get to my desk. I'm going to get called for the 10 o'clock and, uh, The next thing you knew the market turned around. It was one of the world's largest whips us, right? I mean, it ended up it ended up hundreds right on the on that Wednesday. Yes, exactly. So what so well, that happened tonight. Well, I could make you an absolute prediction. It will be wild. There's no doubt it will be wild. But I don't sure that tonight we're going to have that kind of Oh, my gosh, It's happening tonight. Unless you know some of these swing states come in early. I'm not political pollster. I can't predict with stock market's going to do overnight. Here's what I will say to you. I hope that statistic I gave you I didn't do that to be political. Give you some comfort that America is going to continue with the greatest fear with what's going on. And enmity on both sides is that we lose democracy. We lose America, the free enterprise system. Um, we've managed to get through a lot of horrible stuff in our lifetime of financial crises I'm talking about and I think America is going to get through this and I wouldn't sell America short now by any means. Here's another one from the voters today, 37% said. The U. S is on the right track, 63% of voters said it is headed in the wrong direction. That's that's a pretty tough numbered. Overcome if you're an incumbent It's just history says it is because, history says, or James Carville remember years and years ago. It's the economy stupid. So when you talk to people about how they are still out there a lot of people that are not thinking about their own personal finances with higher taxes or whatever. That they're thinking about the country and so that entirely clear that everybody's going to vote their own wallet this time. That's pretty good arguments to say. I want to get past my personal situation and put America on a better track or a different track, And I think that that's going to drive some of the voting, But I'm a student. To the surprise is in the selection of anyone else, and I don't think I can call where the market's going. Except either way, I think the market a winner because money moves market and, uh, First of all, the Republicans will be magnanimous if they defeat the Democrats if there is no blue waves if they retain the Senate I'll put a similar through now. They made their point. And if the Democrats when they will not only be a stimulus, but there could be infrastructure announcement and that will take him a while to get around to passing their tax increases. So the immediate impact I think no matter who wins this election, or how the Congress turned out, it's more money is on its way. Nobody's going to let America fall down the drain. They almost did. And I think you'll see a huge stimulus before year and still be very, very interested in talking to Terry Savage. You can read her columns of terry savage dot com. Terry I got that e mail I get every year earlier today, it makes me sweat makes my skin crawl something about open enrollment in a lot of choices..

It's Election Day. Take a breath. Here's what to expect.

"Politics. And this landscape in particular, Wendy Schiller joins us. She of Brown University, of course on a friend to the program, and Teo Is the station with the chair of political science again at Brown University. Wendy, What is your base case? No. I just get right to it. I think here's what I think will will know from some congressional races, I think, signaling earlier than even the presidential races. We know that there's a lot of people who are elected in 2018 in what we call competitive swing district like Virginia, for example. Leave Illinois. We have a couple of races in Texas that look really tight and are surprisingly competitive. We have a couple of Minnesota, you know if things start to swing in congressional district sooner. For the Democrats. Then you start to think, Okay, maybe buy will have a very good night. But, you know, we'll know about Florida will know about North Carolina will know about Arizona, and we'll know about Georgia, probably, but before midnight tonight, and if all of those swing for Trump If Trump looks really healthy in those states and looks like he could win, then I think things get very, very dicey for Biden, so that's a big sort of vomit or buying only when one of those states You know, one of those four states or look like he's in the lead in a considerable lead in one of those states for him, that sort of have a more relaxed night. But if he if Trump wins, all of Omar looks like he's going to win all of them, I think that that tells us that this sort of blue wave we thought might emerge isn't going to emerge the same way. So, Professor. How do you think the Senate will shake out is there in fact, you know the market's kind of suggesting here today that a blue wave may in fact be in the cards? How do you think that might go in the Senate? That that that's a great question, Paul because you think about the Senate, and you think you know Mitch McConnell is totally immune. This time, you would have thought if there's a big blue wave. You know, The guy has really been the poster boy for the campaign against the Republicans controlling the Senator Mitch McConnell. He's goingto probably breeze to reelection, some a little suspicious of that big blue way for the Senate. Iowa looks neck and neck. You know, we had a recent poll. That's very credible that looks like Joni Ernst can pull it out and stay. You know if Cal Cunningham can win in North Carolina That suggests probably that the Democrats might get 51. If they can win Maine as well. Probably away in Arizona. Probably gonna win Colorado and lose Alabama, so they're looking at probably minimally a 51 49 Republican, or 50, 50 51 49 Democrats. So I think that's where they you know, we don't know. And I think that's where North Carolina becomes so important, even even if we don't know by Trump. You know, it's Cal Cunningham looks like he's really gonna win that race that suggest better things. The Democrats across the board for the Senate Say some of that again. When do you say Arizona is definitely going to go Democrat Texas? What did you say about Texas? And then also, I think, Arizona for Mark Kelly. I think he's been polling very consistently ahead of Martha makes alley. But you can imagine, let's say people voting for more. Kelly, a former astronaut. You know and not voting for Joe Biden. You know, voting for Kelly because they want him over more than Sally and they voted for Trump in Arizona. You didn't see the Democrats winning Senate in Arizona but not winning the presidential race. Then Texas is, you know, shocking right? The turnout in Texas has been absolutely shocking. And but it looks like John Cornyn comfortably ahead of head guard that the challenger there, But I think the issue is that Trump is only basically one point ahead in Texas, which is just you know, if you think about politics, just stunning. Same with Georgia. George will be interesting because it does not get 50% or more against us off. Then you've got to run off elections in Georgia in January, and I think that's really going to be some interesting voting dynamics, so it's possible the Senate Democrats could ultimately end up with a 51 of 52 majority, but I still think it's a bit of a long shot. So Professor if the presidential election becomes contested, what is your kind of base case for how it may play out? I think we could be faced with an unprecedented historic situation. I think you know if we have a tie, for example, if in the Electoral College in December's actually a tie, it goes to the newly elected house, which is expected Thio more Democratic. However, the Republicans still control more votes in state delegations than the Democrats, and that's Probably isn't going to change so you could conceivably have literally the house electing a re electing President Trump but in the Senate. If it's 51 49 with the new Senate and its new Democrats, then they may like Tomahawk. Advice. I mean, really, quite stunning. It's really stunning thing. So I think so many things have changed already in 2020 weather, Trump gets reelected or not, is obviously monumental. But even if he gets reelected, I think the Democrats have shown they know how to mobilize voters, and I think they've shown some of these states have changed a lot in terms of demographics, and they are going to be more competitive, moving forward. Which changes the nature of politics going to 2022. If we know that politicians look at the next election the minute this election is over, and so when we start to think about what the balance of power might be in the Senate house in 2022 these gains the Democrats appear to be making among voters in the states. Changes a lot of dynamics, which will probably change some of the policies coming out of Congress. Yeah, I mean, it's really the African American gold, right, Wendy and how much more of that will see? We're already seeing, you know, a lot more engagement. Yeah. So I think African American who has always been key in North Carolina and Georgia had about 64% African American turnout in 2016. It wasn't enough because those numbers were not hit in in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania among African American voters, and they, you know they may or may not get there. If they get there, I think Biden winds relatively easily. But what's interesting is suburban white women. Of all educational levels seem to be really vehemently at the moment against Trump in the polls, and it could be that instead of the black vote really being key in the Midwest, it ends up being white women. Which would be really interesting shift, you know, mirrors 2018 when white, the majority of white women voted for democratic candidates, But it would change the nature of the Democratic coalition. If that were the deciding factor, So that's what I'm looking for. I'm looking for turnout, particularly in particular counties in Michigan. Well, we still have. A lot of people are gonna vote in person and certainly in Pennsylvania when you were really out of time. But I am desperate to

Wall Street Journal Utility stocks shed safety image as investors bet on blue Wave bump. So a lot of on Wall Street people are investing today and believing that the future is bright for a lot of these green technology companies, and so they're investing them. If Biden becomes president, that alone isn't a problem. My problem is they're just investing because they think the government is going to begin subsidizing these industries, and that's not a re away to invest. You shouldn't be thinking about that. When you're investing West should be thinking about who has the best product who has the best cell who has the ability to get it out there supply and demand, But people are actually betting on.

The Latest: Kershaw, Dodgers take Game 1 over Rays

"Vast fox sports radio networking glad you have chosen to spend A couple minutes with us and there is no debate. There is no debate where we begin this night, a radio the fall classic surfing the Blue Wave Cowabunga Dod's the Fall Classic, starting in a neutral site. Kind of on Tuesday night with Joe Buck every night, you get ajob of game and John Smalls calling the game on Fox. Did you watch? Maybe not will see that I don't imagine the ratings will be very good for this Thegame was lopsided in there's one team that has a fan base and another one that doesn't a national fan base for the Dodgers. Put on a pyrotechnics show. It was like the Fourth of July. Boom Bang Bam! The Dodger offense When Cody Bellenger Mookie Betts hit homeruns Clayton Kershaw mowing down Tampa haters like it was an April started Dodger Stadium on by the time The damage he'd done. Ella ended up spit roasting the raise 8 to 3 and Game one of the 2020 World Series for the Dodgers Get a leg up on the best of seven series now three wings away. From their first championship as a franchise since 1988 When Ronald Reagan was the president, Tommy Lasorda was waddling in the dugout and Kurt Gibson got wanted bat and hit a home run and is at all time legend because of that, as a Dodger, So let us discuss the question. What are your big takeaways? From Game one of the World Series, a domination situation for the Dodgers. So I've got the white whale hand grenades and Smurfs and we will tie all these things together. Now we talk about the World Series. Game one. You start with us. Accounts on Lee is just one game. It doesn't matter that much in the big picture. It's only one game. However. I'm going to disagree with that statement because the feeling that one gets watching Game one of the World Series from the Dodgers side of things. It's like hitting a two team parlay. It doesn't seem like a one win situation. Night, so don't undersell the importance of a game one win for Los Angeles and I'll tell you why. Because the Dodgers winning a Clayton Kershaw playoffs start As easy as a B C. 123. Is not something that happens very often, right. You feel like you dodged a bullet when you win a Kershaw game in the playoffs in a big play off game, Kershaw has been the dog with fleas in the postseason. And while many of my colleagues on television like to downplay Clayton Kershaw's missteps on radio, we don't do that We don't his World Series resume coming in. I would have him in the bread line. If that was his resume. What into an E? R. A of over five he had pitched in 26 2 3rd innings given up 16 earned runs. Over four starts in five games. But on this night, it reminded and voice in my head. It was Dick Stockton, who told me years ago stats tell you what has happened. They don't tell you what's going to happen. And that was a vintage regular season type of Kershaw performance. And you see that in a big play off game as often as you see a white whale swimming around the ocean, right? Clayton Kershaw got 38 swings. 19. Mrs. He had a whiff rate of 50%. Now the stat geeks tell us that that is the highest Of Clayton Kershaw's career, whether it be the postseason or the regular season that half the time it was S O matter, Miss. That is what's known as flexing your muscles, and it wasn't just Kershaw. Cody Bellenger, Mookie Betts. Max Muncy all had big days. The conga line kept moving. You keep pressure on your opponent 10 hits, they got seven walks. The Dodgers drew seven walks and, more importantly than that. They actually hit when they had runners in scoring position. They batted 3 57 on this day with runners in scoring position. They were five out of 14 follow the ways and is a key. You follow the wisdom often, American legend Will Rogers You never get a second chance to make a first impression. The Dodgers they made their first impression. Now you've got to back that up. You have backed that up in Game two in Game three, but you only played one game and the Dodgers the more talented team they didn't play down to their competition. They played like they were the superior opponent in this matchup. We certainly hope that continues were slightly biased on this now. Part B. If you would like to knit pick That's one of these. We get paid to do hear on the radio. Always to pick apart things in micro analyze. Dave Roberts fell back into some old analytical principles. We were hoping that his gut feeling managerial move. The other night would continue. It did not in this game, managing Clayton Kershaw. For Dave Roberts is like juggling hand grenades. One wrong move one wrong move and your head gets blown off. And I understand partially what Roberts is thinking. Because when I'm watching Clayton Kershaw, I'm thinking, OK, Here's where it all falls apart goes to hell right here, right. This is going to be the inning. It all goes to crap. In a playoff situation. But on this night Kershaw he was dealing He'd only thrown 78 pitches. Through six innings. And ah, very effective there. The Rays hitters were completely flummoxed against Kershaw as we gave you some of the numbers there of 50% with weight, and despite the Dodgers having a huge advantage there up eight tow one. They, Roberts Arbitrarily said. That's it. We're going to take you out of the game. I'd rather take you out of half inning. Too early, then a half inning too late. So that brought in Dillon Florio, who wasn't good and then and then Roberts panic because the Rays attempted the pin shit G may enjoy And so Roberts ran out of the dog and I got to make a change. I

I love the analogy about DC that legislating stuff is like blowing air through a straw. Very that's pretty good. It's really hard on ly. What if you blow too hard? No air comes out the other side and this is going to be an issue and when people and I'm getting a little off size, you're gonna bring it back to the market. When people talk about court packing, and I know by continuing to dodge that question, there is no there's nothing in the Constitution that says you can't do it. There's a congressional piece of legislation from I think he's in the 18 sixties. That's at the court and nine justices, and many people in the political left have argued for a Biden plants like Blue Wave to add justices of the Supreme Court. Um, to reduce sort of the original list majority, if you will, if they try to nominate 2 to 4 justices to the court, irrespective whether they'll be successful. Justice shuts down anything else happening in Congress. For about a month to a month and a half. So you do four. Or you do to your just lighten on fire or taking away your ability to do anything else. You're taking away every justices a month and a half, and you're going either do two or four. So we're gonna eat there lose three months or we're gonna lose six months and that's time that they can't do other stuff. So part of me is kind of like, OK, go down that road, please. I don't know. I mean the Republicans. Let's be. Let's just go be frank here. The Republicans have been trying. It's certainly in the last four picks to overturn Robi way, which I'm not touching directly, but just hear out where I'm going with this. Take on one for four. People they put on the court that clearly Would voters get one vote to overturn their principal going? It's difficult and we can go back to David Souter with George H. W. Bush the first one you're not guaranteed when you put your shoes on the court. About how they're going to rule. And so The potential for Stasis. That's really what I'm rooting for is high. And I think that's what the market is thinking Salsa, which is your the highest probability thing that you're gonna get number one is stimulus. And that's that's all the market and that's all the market cares about. That's why the market is working with bite. So stimulus Either way, then you get stimulus stimulus with Trump wins. You have stimulus with Biden when there's an open, there's a YouTube name of this Oprah show where you get a stimulus. You get a stimulus. He's pointed the hole. That's really what it is.

Biden outperforming Trump in all key swing states, polls say

"Competing tonight for eyeballs. The candidates were supposed to have a debate. Instead, they're speaking at two different town hall forums on two different TV networks at the same time. President Trump There's pressure to persuade some voters to his side. That's underscored by a new NPR PBS NewsHour Marist poll out today, showing Biden jumping to a double digit lead nationally. NPR's senior political editor, Domenico Montanaro joins us now. Hey, Domenico Hales. All right, So we have been seeing the president slide in other polls since the first debate since his illness. What did our poll find here is very similar to other national polls. Biden is now up 54 to 43. That's the highest Biden has gotten in our poll since it began tracking the race in February. Trump notably has gotten has not gotten above 44% in any of those poles. And the president is running out of time, frankly, to turn things around. The thing that stands out in this poll is Biden now is actually narrowly winning white voters by a 51 to 47% margin. Trump one white voters by 20 points in 2016. If Biden were to get that high, it would be the highest recorded for any Democrat even since Jimmy Carter and that could indicate a very big blue wave building up and down the ballot. That's you know, big, of course, because Trump is still within striking distance in key swing states and those will decide the electoral college. We don't know how things are going to go over the next couple of weeks, but white voters are somethingto. Watch for Why Biden. Khun do well in those places. But Baba, But can we just remember for a moment? What happened in 2016? I mean, Hillary Clinton was up by what about 10 points at this point in the race? I guess what I'm wondering is how much should we be reading into this lead? Biden has in the polls right now. Sure. Well, you know the phrase out, believe it when I see it. Well, yeah, I see it, but I'll believe it. When it happens, Anything can happen here. And when you talk to Democrats, they're not satisfied with the poles. Many aren't even looking at them. And they want this election not to be close. So they're doing everything they can. To make that happen. You know, Clinton certainly had a significant lead at this point, not quite this wide, but that race tighten significantly in the final couple weeks. We have to remember, so that's something to watch. But they're really a few reason reasons why 2020 is not 2016 1st. There's been far less volatility in the polls. This time around, there are far fewer undecided voters are poll shows. Just 5% of people are persuadable, meaning people undecided or who could say they know they might change their minds? Third parties don't seem to be playing as much of a factor. And, frankly, surveys and are reporting are telling us that Biden is just better liked than Hillary Clinton overall, Huh? Okay, well, I want to

"You know what I got in? That would be true for the country. The whole country would go to hell. And we're not going to let it go to hell. I certainly hope not. President's willing to take action here. And that's one of the reasons the left hates him so much. He's not going to sit back. And allow this Allow this to continue. On the other side of this, you have to remember that this is unfortunately all Within the Democrat playbook. All the mayhem all the anarchy, the destruction, they think that they politically benefit from this, Senator Cruz. Is out there just saying Remember this folks that the the angry leftists who came out and and delivered The House of Representatives. The Democrats the last time around, there's going to be a lot of that this time play 18. Let me tell you right now, every one of those crazed, angry leftist who showed up in 2018 they're showing up in 2020 and they're even angry. They hate President Trump and far too many of them hate America. The left. It's not going to stop at anything to come after Texas and come after this country, and we've got four months. To stop a blue wave from destroying the great state of Texas. Texas is in Democrat crosshairs, friends. Some of the polling out of Texas has been form or far more concerning that anybody would have thought at this point. It's a look. You're going to keep saying you have to keep saying that it's early. We don't know exactly where this is all going, but we do need to understand. That It's go time. Right now. I've been thinking more and more, but I got friends. Ask me Buck you think Trump can win from what I understand Things are looking better in Florida now, which is key. Without Florida. It's all over. Another reason why producer Mark and I might have to move to Florida, but without Florida, it's all over. Um Beyond that. I'm starting to see some movement in the right direction. And I think Trump Is getting back into his old group a bit. I think it's happening. I also think that he's going to have to get a lot of help from people out there making the case along with him about what we really face. If, in fact the Biden presidency or it would have become a thing. As troubling as troubling as that is, the fighting presidency could very well become a thing, and that's why the arguments were having about me. What's going on with law enforcement. Also with coverted are so very, very important. You have these two issues are going to determine because the economy right now isn't even really Is it normal? It's being the economy is being held. Hostage, really by Kobe 19 by the Democrat lock down policies that are still continuing on around it. I like what Can't leave. The White House press secretary had to say about de Blasio just cause he's ruining New York City. She threw a little shade his way play play that clip. Gather to take control of the streets of New York City, where in some places we've seen 600% surge and violence over last year, so I think they should work together. It's ultimately the power of the mayor to enforcing the governor to enforce the police power of their states. That power rests with them that they can partner with the federal government in the event there unable to control the violence in their cities, and that's certainly what we've seen from Mayor deBlasio, who seems tohave. Not a hard time criticizing police officers but an awfully hard time controlling the streets of New York City. Is talent like it is. It's important for people to hear. How this is really all shaking out on what's really happening. Because these Air Democrat policies that are having consequences that are resulting in loss of life. People are dying because Democrats believe and insist on stupid things. On. That's that's the case here in New York, and a lot of places across the country. You know de Blasio, one of the Very specific bits of advice he had given is that he didn't want there have been these instances of People engaging and I don't want you like fireworks. Fights, shooting fireworks at each other and large numbers of fireworks in these Aaron, primarily black and Latino neighborhoods of New York, and there's all this Shooting off fireworks at each other. On DH. The cops aren't doing anything about it. And the deblasio response to this had been Hey, you know, we don't want cops involved. Even though this is dangerously. They gave the fireworks. You know, you could put out an eye You could get burned really badly Die. We don't want cops getting involved in this. Let's just let people have their own conversations about this and ask their neighbors. If they'll stop doing this. So A woman was killed. In Brooklyn just a couple of days ago. A woman was killed. She Octavia walls. She was murdered. Because she I took the advice of Democrat Borough president Eric Adams, actually, so he's somebody who works under our works for the City Council, or whatever borough presidents like a city like the City Council. Eric Adam's advice. He's a Democrat. That New Yorkers have disputes settled neighborhood neighbor instead of calling 911 when there's all these legal fireworks today via walls. Was blasted eight times, according to New York Post. In East New York housing complex. And she was asking them. The people firing these two take their fireworks away from a group of kids playing. And they shot her to death. So she said, Hey, can you stop firing the fireworks of the cops are not gonna do anything about the blast. He doesn't want them to and the borough president says, Just talk to your neighbors about this. She talked to her neighbor. She's dead now killed For listening to the advice of elected Democrats who told the cops to stand down. This is what is happening because of Democrat insanity. People are dying.

Really conservatism and liberalism. In america. But the from the last hour some things that it might have sounded like I was joking. When steel suggested that the who why people are picking on steel, our caller in from Texas. Why conservatives are all up about the abuse of Justice when it is a a white guy a rich guy, the president retired about Trump here. And it might have seemed like I was joking. When I said, it's time for trickle down Justice. But I actually think that is a. There are people like myself who have been saying that the FBI has been abusing their power with the president. And I wholeheartedly believe that prosecutors in many cases are out of control. They have too much power. And I'm I'm a law and order guy like catching criminals, but I think that if if police are hiding evidence if they there's a couple of big cases there's innocent people falsely accused is the subject of many podcasts movies. People are fascinated by documentaries. The there's a very popular documentary on Netflix making making a murderer or making of a murderer. I think it's making a murderer. And this thing was huge huge ratings bonanza for net flicks. And there were two versions up a lot of people around here. We're talking about when it came out. And they said oh that guy. So guilty thing is he may be guilty. I don't know. But there was such police misconduct. And that shares sheriff's department in that documentary, did I said to myself, they gotta throw that whole case out. They've got a release that guy and his brother they were both imprisoned. And they may they may be guilty of something. I don't know. I don't think I think the brothers totally innocent, by the way. I don't know if you guys are familiar with this case. But there is a brother who has learning disabilities Susan jail, and he was railroaded by the prosecutors now, I'm a law and order guy. But I think he got to let those guys out of prison. Because there was definitely misconduct by the sheriff's department and by the prosecutors and when there's misconduct you gotta throw the throw out the conviction. So I'm across the board on stuff like that the. There's another podcast that I listen to called in the dark. It's a great ex- expose, and there's a case, and the it's actually a a kind of a semi famous case probably never heard of it because I never heard of until this podcast until I listened to the podcast Curtis. Flowers is a guy who's been in jail for years. The the evidence is overwhelming that he did not commit this murder that he's on death row four. So in that case, I think the guy's totally innocent. But even if he weren't he would he should be released because there was such. Misconduct by the district attorney's office in that case. So that's the case of a guy. Poor black guy from Mississippi. They making a murderer is a poor white guy from Wisconsin. The president is a rich guy whatever wherever I see prosecutorial misconduct. And I can remember when I was a kid growing up. One of the big cases was the DeLorean case where they got this guy for drug smuggling. But they planted the drugs on day, actually, set them up. They entrapped him and he was released and he should have been released. He was a rich guy. And everybody said at the time all this guy delory, and he's such a rich guy. And you know, he's getting off and poor people never get off on these kind of drug charges. Well, the rich guys should have got off in the poor guy should get off. So I'm pretty. Adamant about that. I do think in many cases, prosecutors have too much power. And I think in many cases, they abuse their power and when they're caught. They are. They ought to release the people they had to throw out their convictions. Want to talk about liberalism and conservatism now Gallup has a new poll out US, still leans conservative. But liberals keep recent gains. Do you think that America is becoming more liberal? There's my question to you eight hundred three eight five two four eight six six do you think America's becoming more liberal, or do you think it is just a reaction to the president that in this past election? You know, we had that Blue Wave, and you know, with people talked about it's going to be a Blue Wave is going to be a red wave people call this show, and they say, hey, is you know, someone called last week. There was one of our famous callers called in. And he said when are you guys gonna get it? The country has spoken der against Trump. They're against the wall the country didn't speak. They there was an election and the Republicans lost seats. They did not lose seats in the Senate. But they lost him in the house. And it's a function of the fact that there are many people energized in democratic circles because they are. Rabidly anti Trump. They're all frost up on trumpet. And yes, so it drives people out to the polls. I think that a lot of this Russia's stuff, you know, when I see Democrats talking I was talking in the last hour. Mark Warner who went on the talk shows, and he was saying this president is guilty of collusion in in so many ways, I don't think that a lot of these Democrats in office actually think he's guilty of collusion. They're using it as a way to drive their base out there. They say, oh, we have this Koluder in chief. And it drives people out to the polls. It was. It was why they had a successful election in the house this past fall. But I don't think a lot of them believe it themselves. But I do believe that the. Liberals are fraught up and angry, and it's helping them it helped them in that last election. But I don't know if it is a national trend. Do you think the country is becoming more liberal? Young misspoke, Ascione Cortez, obviously thinks that they are. There's a lot of people who think, oh, this is never going back to the old ways day think they're going to have a progressive majority. The a lot of the Bernie people think that the country is an I talk to people all the time. I talked to New York isn't they say, Tom. It's all been a scam. This whole the the right wingers have had a been engaged in propaganda since the eighties. This is a liberal country. It's a progressive country. Liberals actually think this the people who were the Bernie supporters the people who like Alexandra oh Cossio Cortez date. Think that there's a hidden liberal? Base of the country that has been snookered and trick. And you know, that they are they're discouraged from voting but through dirty tricks and everything else, and then they they always have reasons to to blame it on either Republicans or in this last election, the last presidential election, blame it on Russian interference and all this other stuff. But there's a lot of liberal activists who think that the country is essentially progressive now the Gallup poll doesn't really back that up. But there are not good signs for Republicans. If you look at the ideology people used to be afraid to use the word liberal. Even Democrats did. In fact, we're going back to nineteen ninety four and the the number of people. Who said that they were liberal. Was almost non-existent liberal was a dirty word. And and Democrats was I'm not a liberal nowadays. People are very proud of the fact that they're liberal, and if I'm reading this correct in two thousand eighteen. The fifty one percent of Democrats embraced the term liberal. Where's it was twenty five percent? You know, just one quarter of Democrats were willing to admit they were liberal back in nineteen ninety four. So he's the country becoming more liberal Gallup won't reach a conclusion as they said that the title of this analysis of their poll is US still leans conservative. But liberals keep recent gains. Aside from Democrats, I'm quoting here from the analysis of the poll, this is by Lydia sad. And she must be a Gallup person. 'cause she I have the the poll from last year conservatives lead US in ideology is down to single digits. Lydia wrote last year at this time. So it's been shrinking the number of people who identify as conservative essentially, but they still lead. And I'll get to the numbers here aside from Democrats says Lydia only two groups show, strong liberal tendencies adults with postgraduate education. Yeah. That's so if you have gone for your masters degree, you're probably liberal. And black Americans. Mostly liberal daily nine nine points more liberal than conservative. I thought it might be more than that. But it's it is nine plus nine on the liberal side. However, given the relatively low rate of liberalism nationally. It is it is notable that adults aged eighteen to twenty nine thirty to forty nine lean more liberal than conservative by four points and adults aged thirty to forty nine women and residents of the east where I'm from lean marginally more liberal. So it's kind of interesting so the white white people thirty nine percent identifies conservative thirty three percent. Moderate twenty four percent liberal so white people conservative plus fifteen conservative, plus fifty people who have some college have attended either. Some, you know few years of college or or went to junior junior college or whatever some college thirty-seven percent conservative thirty six percent. Moderate twenty four percent liberal very similar to the white identification. Plus thirteen conservative. Now postgraduate education only twenty three percent say they're conservative thirty eight percent liberal. So it's minus fifteen.

"And that's what the Blue Wave was about that brought in this new progressive class in congress. And that's where hope lies that's where. That's what's going to give birth to so many other great candidates and leaders that we desperately need right now. I also fully believe that we are going to get through this. It's just going to require us to continually fact, check the abuse of power in the media and backcheck the abuse of power in congress. And of course, the kleptocrats in the White House, and we all just have to stay engaged vigilant and United in our own communities of knowledge and civic service to really fight our way out of this because there's no other way. There's there's just being on the sidelines is what contributed to getting us here. So now, it's an all hands on deck moment for at least generation because as we keep saying it's multiple crises hitting us at the same time from the nuclear bomb of income inequality to global warming. It's all going to hit the same time and all the far right movement sort of capitalizing on on these disasters. Molars reports not going to solve anything. Signed up for this now for life. This is our lifestyle now guys so on a happy. No, I think we could end with a Christmas greeting to our orthodox listeners. People of the orthodox faith who listen to this show today is January seventh which is Christmas. According to old Julian calender as recognized by the orthodox and eastern, rite churches, my mother's family is from eastern Ukraine, which is predominantly orthodox. So we would celebrate what we called Ukrainian Christmas at home. My father's family is from the predominantly Catholic western Ukraine, which meant we also celebrated Christmas.

Explainer 147: What will House Democrats do with their newfound power?

"Tonight. I am speaking to you because there is a growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border. A new year, and you congress the same. Donald Trump two thousand nineteen is already looking like is going to be a confrontational year in US politics debate. If you will the extent the Blue Wave in November's midterms, but regardless the Democrats are back fresh-faced from the holiday break with newly acquired control of the capital's lower chamber, the house of representatives the looming question. What will they do? Then you potentcy on the hill. Every call you made every joy, you're not giving text you sent every conversation. You had made the difference between winning and losing in this election. Thanks to you. We owned the ground. Thanks to you. Tomorrow will be a new day in America before we get to carry away. It's worth noting a few points and clipping ever-so-slightly those wings firstly, the democratic majority is slightly less. Twenty one seats to be exact then the last time the party one house control a little over eight years ago. And they also remains the fact that the upper chamber the Senate remains firmly in Republican hands meaning the potential for legislation passed by the house to be quashed by Republican adversities is constant then the chance of internal fighting much has been made of the new makeup of the house, and whether the different factions within democratic ranks a pulling in different directions too much has arguably been made if this despite the election of a young. Unapologetically progressive set of legislators who have promised that constituents that they will hold their president to account and question, the old gods grip on politics. The houses makeup is certainly diverse with a Sadove at twenty three percent of the chamber now female two thousand and nineteen is the best showing today. Even if the US is quest for gender parity is lagging when compared to much of the rest of the world alongside two new native American legislators, congress now also includes its first elected Palestinian American woman. It was said Palestinian American a from Michigan Rashida to live who caused the newly in stored house speaker Nancy Pelosi, the leader of the aforementioned old God and back in the job for a second time to win slightly when she was cool too. Video addressing a crowd in a bar and promising love you and you win when your son looks at you and says, look you won bullies don't win. And I said, maybe they don't because we're going to go on their mother fucker. And that's the rotunda elephant in the room right there. What will Democrats do about the thing? They clearly itching to do Pelosi has been cool shis about the notion of impeachment saying that it was far from inevitable going fast, a cool it divisive and saying that would need to be a bipartisan agreement Pelosi who essentially struck a deal with her house colleagues in returning to the speakership by saying she wouldn't remain in power beyond four years is also clearly being pragmatic, although the house of representatives investigates and votes on grounds for impeachment. It's the Senate job to approve a trial, and it would need a two-thirds majority to remove the president from office something it didn't manage to achieve with Clinton for now, we can expect Democrats in the house to shine a light on some of the more unsavory aspects of. The Trump presidency today eight including family separations, and perhaps even using house committee. Subpoena powers to get the hands on Trump's tax returns. Something that would prove a protracted legal fight. Whatever the case, and despite the potential for fervent social media outburst from the new darling of the left. The Bronx is fledgling house member twenty nine year old Alexandria oak. Casio Cortes, Democrats are broadly. You know, heated that rural blue collar base has largely been wiped out by the Trump train, which simply put means few at conservative Democrats with the potential to thwart and gender in the house. If there's one thing the House Democrats seem universally agreed on it's an aversion to the president expect and on mighty bun fight then as this year progresses. No, president should pound the table in demand. He gets his way or else. The government shuts down hurting millions of Americans were treated as leverage as for the efficacy of that fight surely two years of this administration have taught you nor. To try and predict and sadly much of what we heard from President Trump's throughout this sense of shutdown has been full of misinformation and even malice the president has chosen fear. We wanna start with the facts in New York, I'm at stock.

"Be more preferable and damn them for their shortsighted anti-american unpatriotic blindness and stupidity. And what absolutely both amazes and confounds me is is how many people are willing to treat Donald Trump. Like he is already a third world dictator of a banana Republic. It has been the MO cable news this week to look back on some of the events of the past year. And while I certainly don't want to spend an entire show revisiting old Trump crimes aberrations that offenses when he commits more than his fair share daily, and you know, if he was smarter man, you could be tempted to think that was his strategy. If I commit four climbs this week. Maybe they'll forget the three I committed last week course that means I'll have to commit five next week. But there'll be so many though all barely survived one twenty four hour news cycle. So I'm good. But there's one thing I want to go back to that happened before the midterm election that I had ready the week before the election didn't have time to bring you remember back before the election when all the polls you right Queen nuts. Don't trust all pointed to a Blue Wave. We remember what your media hosts were saying. We know God has called us to get out and vote November six it's so crucial. And especially in some of these key areas, we're going to win. We're going to continue to see things. Go read not this Blue Wave. They're talking about things are going to be read read read, I call it for the blood of Jesus. That's what's going to happen. I hope they keep on a tractor doing because this is going to ensure us a red soon. Nami not a red wave a red. Sue NAMI, I've been saying all along one hundred percent with you on the read this an army. I believe that's gonna take place. Just look at the attendance at the Trump rallies tonight as we speak. Okay. It's it's incredible. And I believe that there are more silent supporters of Donald Trump authored than there are these communist, socialist, ideolog criminals. Okay. I believe that to be the case. Well, the midterms I believe there's going to be a registered NAMI, it's not going to be a red wave people have said this is going to be a Blue Wave. Well. Now, it's not this is this is going to be more. Like, a blue drip shimmy, like an annoyance like leaky faucet. That's what this is going to be for the Democrats. I don't think you're gonna see another democrat in the White House for a long long time if ever again at this point. I think we're just going to be decimated. Praise. God,.

"Who say I'm going to take you through this process with me, and one thing that impressed me about what I saw this morning and other people I've talked to I talked to people who are here in two thousand and six a lot of the Democrats who came in. And they were people who had always planned to run the people coming in. Now, they were inspired. They saw Trump. They saw vomit. They said I gotta get in this fight right now. And I think the women are leading the way it's going to be a great opportunity. And I think this is gonna engage even more people to run in twenty twenty. You may say Democrats put some of the most powerful candidates possible in the Senate races. And gubernatorial races in two thousand twenty. So go ahead its plan. It's God's plan. Come on. Let's go with Drake. It's got. It's you believe that God has reached out and created this Blue Wave. I'm always know all that. God was by partisans up about him here. She is looking down and understanding today. You know, Donna, there's a Dead Sea reference somewhere in here with the Blue Wave, but I'm gonna leave it. And I'm gonna say I don't believe to my knowledge at least that we've been able to confirm that God is in either party. But my thanks to everyone could train Donna and Jason a big news night. Coming up close dropping a bomb into the debate about indicting president and later when an interview lawmaker fighting for Donald Trump's tax returns. Plus, we're going to break down how Pelosi has Republicans already in a corner on a vote that's looming on the shutdown.

"But ultimately, the blue the Blue Wave was not nearly as big as it could have been everything went as well as it could have gone for Democrats in the house. But again, you know, Republicans expanding the majority in the Senate could just need more gridlock or Republican victories. And I will say this one thing that is key here in this goes for twenty twenty is that it may have worth in twenty eighteen to just basically resist Trump, but you can't go into a national a nationwide election in twenty twenty in just go on the message that Trump is awful. And I am just coming to sit. You know, basically, I'm presenting myself as a. Candidate the sale awfully is. That's why you should both for me. They actually have to come up with a cohesive message. And I think when you talking about some particular, well, there's some not all of them. But there's some of them who definitely probably have better chances of reaching independent voters. And I actually have my eyes right now on AB quote bizarre. I think she is a very formidable candidate for Democrats who actually should a woman in attorney, and she was part of the cabinet hearings. She actually did incredibly well in the rural parts of her stay in Minnesota when she was for reelection this year, and as you know, all these all these big role counties, they're very pro-trump. So especially in Minnesota. So she actually might have a lot more staying power and could probably reach out to those white over boaters in twenty twenty if she ends up running or win the nomination. I disagree with Raj a little bit in the sense that I think it was a Blue Wave. Which kinda slow rolled into a slew mall. Sue, NAMI, they picked up forty seats. And I'll give another or the house. I agree. The house the house yet, we're blue and saying a bigger picture probably wasn't. But anyways, go ahead. But the Senate even I mean, they picked up to if you really think about it, which is not a amid the amount of campaigning the trumpet, right? And also, you have to take an account voter suppression in Kotor in particular and also north laurel and North Carolina and Georgia. And so that was also a key. Takeaway that we'll see how this pays off. And also, you know, the cabinet hearings. Yes, they could have played a role in shoring up, you know, Trump's base, right? Especially in these rule parts which gave the loss to mccaskill, Don Lee and others. But also brought out women who are pissed off. Who did not forget. And I think who are extremely Alvin especially in the age of me too and time's up. Also, I think what we're seeing here is basically people wanted a platform that was different right? So it wasn't the Democrats on something smart in Schumer and Pelosi in particular laser focus, not necessarily on anti Trump campaign, but the laser focused on healthcare and throw already mentioned because Wilkins have shot themselves in the foot with this eight year long campaign for repeal and replace now, you had Republicans who guys remember like the final two weeks of the mid-term like, oh, we're four pre existing conditions. What are you talking about? And everyone's like, oh, wait what Scott Walker excuse me? And so by running on healthcare, which was the number one issue for most Americans Democrats were galvanized, right? Got major winds and also even Republicans who are pulled. They want some checks and limits on this president and people do not like corruption. So I think going in to twenty twenty nineteen twenty twenty I agree that you don't have to necessarily, you know, run an anti-trump campaign, but you can be pretty bold and have some swagger and take out take on Trump. I don't think they have to be afraid any. More because Trump's going to be a lot of taking on biting. There's gonna be a lot of investigations opened up. I think there's. Subpoena. All right. They're going to the committees. I mean, they're gonna they're gonna pin. All I think we're going to. Yeah. Subpoena CB pee on the dust of those migrant children. So that's just day should not just threaten. They should do it. Because I think that's absolutely the Robby. I think they will. I think they'll do both. I think they'll say we have a better plan on healthcare. We have a better plan immigration. We have a better plan on living wages and oh by the where we're taking on Trump. So both mentioned the cavenaugh hearings..

Pelosi on Trump spat: A 'tinkle contest with a skunk'

"Democratic congressional leaders emboldened by the term Blue Wave clashed over a border wall during an Oval Office meeting with President Trump house speaker designate Nancy Pelosi later compared it to a tinkle contest with skunk. Nancy? Would you like to say something the conversation begin pleasantly? But that changed quickly should not have become shutdown. President Trump insisted Democrats support funding for the border wall. Pelosi and Chuck Schumer refused to budge from their one point three billion dollar offer. We urge you to take out of its border security. Very good. By the end of the struggle. The president said he'd be proud to shut down the government. If we don't get what we want Schumer told reporters afterwards that he witnessed a presidential temper tantrum.

The next two years of Donald Trump

"Let's head to the United States. I way President Donald Trump has come out swinging after midterm elections this week sacking his attorney general holding testy press conference and banning prominent CNN reporter from the White House in doing so he's lift America and the Washington principal wondering whether this is the tone to expect for the next two years, Washington correspondent Zoe Daniel reports it's about seven AM after the terms I can hear my son scuffling around downstairs getting ready for the early. Bus to school is mommy Heim yet. I hear mosque. My husband the exits the front door into the foggy Deysi morning. Yes. Sh- I came home at about five AM after reporting through the night on the election results at last live crosses into a stray Leah's evening news or in the very early hours of the US morning from freedom plaza just behind the White House the lights. Hind me framing the US capital in the distance. The midterm results presents a lot more obstacles for Donald Trump for his next two years in office. So Daniel joins us from Washington Zoe, what will losing the house main for the president. He can expect a lot of pushback, basically, it's going to make it really hard for him to get the rest of his policy promises through but beyond that, you can expect Democrats to launch a series of investigations into the Trump administration. And it's going to be another busy day. The first of the next two years for a Trump administration hampered now having lost control of the house to the Democrats. Never this feeling. No the power to win my fine vibrates, and I pick it up of the bid-side title. It's my Donald Trump tweet alert. Are we doing a news conference at the White House? He says and so the second two years begins. Thank you very much bliss. I've been covering Donald Trump now for three years since the end of twenty fifteen when he was just an outsider candidate since he's been president. He hasn't done many of these free. Wheeling solo press conferences the last one. I recalling day say was in February twenty seventeen a few weeks after he's inauguration when he called a press conference with Balian an hour's notice causing the press to scramble from all over the city, and it feels like we've been scrambling ever since two years later, I find myself sitting in the East Room of the White House, again, the president sills the midterms result in which the Republicans lost the house, but gained seats in the Senate as a success as an example of the eleven candidates. We campaigned with during the last week nine one lesson. This vigorous campaign is up the Blue Wave that they talked about. I don't know if. There ever was such thing. But could have been if we didn't do the campaigning. Probably there could have been while. He's early tone was measured the press conference quickly degenerated when the president was pressed on his pre election campaign, specifically anti immigration regime, cover a so caravan of migrants headed for the US border from Central America Vigors, president challenge you on one of the statements that you made in the tail end of the campaign in terms Zooey, go that well, I if you want us residents and that this caravan wasn't invasion as you consider to be as known as president caravan was not an invasion. It's a it's a group of migrants moving up from Central America towards the border with the US. Thank you. Why why did you why did you characterize it as such as I consider an invasion you, and I have a difference of do you think that you demonized immigrants that is electron try them? I want them to come into the country, but they have to come in legally, you know, they have to come in Jim through a process I wanted to be a process, and I want people to come in. And we need the people you're playing your weight. You know, why it was quite a moment as CNN's Jimmy Costa who habitually takes on the president. And his press secretary kept pushing and refused to give up the microphone. They're hundreds of miles away though there hundreds and hundreds of Manila that that's not an invasion.
