Dan and Sean Davis of the Federalist Discuss the 'Narrative Game' of the Liberal Media
"When you and I want to make an argument about taxes for example like the whole tax the rich thing At least we know the data And we can articulate a strong economic case why you know we like or don't like a policy The left can ever do that You see these new tax the rich calls from AOC and the buffoons out there And they did you ask people how much do the rich pay the top 1% And they never know You see this with voter ID two Ted Cruz called out Richard blumenthal up on the hill yesterday in the Senate about voter ID being racist asking him why the minority turnout in his state that doesn't have voter ID Wasn't as good as it was in Georgia where there is voter ID They just never know anything It's all euphemisms word games lies and manipulation And we don't do that You're right yeah They're entire game is the narrative It's something that we should have been included on back during the Rolling Stone UVA rape hoax thing from Sabrina Ruben early who just kind of manufactured with the help of an activist there the story out of whole cloth that never actually happened in your recall she referred to herself the reporter Rolling Stone is a narrative journalist That her purpose was to further particular narratives And any more the narrative is the whole game and that's why CNN and MSNBC and Washington Post New York Times and big tech why they are all so focused on making sure that nothing that can crack the wall of their narrative that can crack the dam and have actually facts coming through Can ever see the light of day because they don't care about the fact they care about power and their ability to maintain power is based on their ability to force a narrative into our eyes and ears and prevent any other competing narratives from ever coming

Biden Turns From Afghanistan to Domestic Agenda
"I am joined by byron york at the washington examiner and fox news. Good morning byron. How are you good morning you doing. Well thanks The lead story for me today has also the lead story in the wall street journal. The headline is biden seeks to shift focus to domestic issues after afghanistan. Exit white house plans to spend september pushing for passage of the president's agenda as he faces falling poll numbers. I personally believe that. Most americans know about the thousands of american citizens l. p. r.'s and sib holders abandoning afghanistan that they don't quite know the details but they're intently concerned with it and that it's an iceberg issue that the president is mishandling by treating it as something that will be forgotten. David drucker disagrees with me. Brian rosen wall. Very much disagrees with me. That americans are paying attention. What does byron york thing. Well i think that american's feelings about us citizens being left behind ghanistan. I think those feelings are essentially folded in to the poll. Numbers that you're seeing Biden's approval rating for his handling the situation afghanistan which are in the twenties. I mean those are nixon and watergate. Poll numbers So i do think that americans are aware of that now. A couple of things about biden changing the subject. Of course he wants to change the subject answer as well A lot of the pr. The question is what will allow the press. Go along with it if you look at politico's playbook this morning and we just tiny tiny little mention of afghanistan Much more on the biden Agenda on the other hand i was. I didn't hear the first half hour of your program Did you read. Senator blumenthal's tweets. Today did not. I tweeted the story out that he is outraged. He's a democrat but go ahead and tell people about it. Well Senator blumenthal Yesterday afternoon Posted a threat on twitter. My staff and i have worked night and day to secure the safe passage of two planes waiting in mazari sharif to take american citizens at risk afghan allies and their families to safety. My office join forces in this humanitarian mission with an incredible coalition of advocates ngos former servicemen and journalists to try to evacuate our fellow citizens in afghan allies by the way ngos former service members and journalists. Anybody missing from that list. Department and pentagon. Yeah exactly so anyway. He goes on And so this is as you point out a democratic senator which may be necessary to give this issue enough credibility for some members of the press to pay attention

Romney: Plan to challenge election 'egregious ploy' that 'dangerously threatens' country
"A growing number of Republican lawmakers back in President Trump's repeated efforts to overturn the 2020 election results today, Senator Ted Cruz announced the coalition of 11 senators and Senators elect who will vote against Democratic electors from states where the president has alleged widespread voter fraud. Those lawmakers joined Missouri Senator Josh Holly, who was the first to announce his intentions to object to the state tallies during the upcoming joint session of Congress. In their statement announcing their intentions today, those 11 lawmakers said in part quote Congress should immediately appoint an electoral commission to conduct an emergency 10 Day audit of the election results in the disputed states. Senators went on to say they quote intend to vote to reject the electors from disputed states. Until that emergency 10 Day audit is completed. The announcement being met with strong pushback from Democrats, including Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal, who tweeted quote this pathetic on the pathetic, opportunistic stunt is an attack on our democracy. It is un American and unconscionable. Votes have been counted, recounted, Certified and all challenges, totally discredited time to govern and get things done. Even some Republicans expressing their disapproval with those 11 senators. Utah Senator Mitt Romney, releasing a statement that read, in part, quote the egregious ploy to reject electors, man hands the political ambitions of some but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic. The congressional power to reject electors is reserved for the most extreme and unusual circumstances. These are far from it. President Trump's lawyers made their case before scores of courts and every instance they failed.
Biden introduces his choice for defense secretary, Lloyd Austin
"President elect Joe Biden once retired general Lloyd Austin to be his defense secretary, not A post he sought. I sought him. Austin would be the first African American to serve in the position. But could his nomination face some trouble in the Senate and joining us live from Capitol Hill? Double d. T. O p. S Mitchell Miller. Mitch General Austin is very well respected. So why are there questions about whether the Senate would confirm it? Well, Shawn and Hillary. It goes back to the history of the defense secretary being in a civilian position, and the so called seven year rule that if a military officer is tapped for that position, they need to have been retired from the military for at least that long. Austin retired four years ago after a distinguished military career of more than 40 years and included a major command in Iraq. Tenure is the head of the U. S. Central Command. But several lawmakers say it's important to maintain a civilian in that position. The ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, Rhode Island Jack Reed had given in on a waiver for General James Mattis under President. Trump said he wouldn't support one in the future. He is now wrestling with this. Others have said they'll oppose the waiver, including senators Elizabeth Warren Richard Blumenthal, who's on the Armed Services Committee and Jon Tester of Montana. But if the House and the Senate grant a waiver, which they both have to do, he'll likely still have plenty of votes to be confirmed. Hey, Mitch, who are the other potential candidates? Lawmakers might have preferred to Austin. Well, one of them would have been the first woman to serve as defense secretary Michelle Florida who's held various positions at the Pentagon and is very well respected. The House Armed Services Committee chair Adam Smith made it clear she was his first choice. Another candidate who had been talked about a lot was former Homeland Security Secretary Jay Johnson. But Biden is said to be very comfortable with Austin as his
Biden introduces his pick to lead Defense Department
"According to jake biden called former centcom commander retired general. Lloyd austin Over the weekend and offered him the position of secretary of defense so this does not come without a little bit of drama. I'll just let you know that 'cause We'll tell you why. According to a source awesome accepted if confirmed austin. We'd be the first black secretary of defense but some dem's are taking issue with the selection because he's not he's a he's not been retired for more than seven years and would require congressional waiver. And but this isn't new. This is what they had to do for mattis when trump non nominated him for secretary of defense but it seems that Many of the deaths have said they would never support a waiver because of the importance of having civilian leadership of the military so blumenthal opposed the waiver as well Slot consists he. We shouldn't be appointing anyone that requires a waiver Biden wrote a detailed defense though of his selection. Saying because austin works well under pressure. He's clearly qualified. But you know. If they're going to i i don't know if they're holding. You know everyone else to the same standard with this waiver. But it'll be interesting to see if this pushback at all. I'm biting clearly.

Senate Judiciary Committee sends Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination to full Senate as Democrats boycott vote
"And I'm Noelle King. Good morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee has advanced the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. Mr Chairman, the votes for 12 years and 10 not present motion is passed. Thank you. All 12 Republican senators voted for her nomination. The committee's 10 Democrats did not show up. They were boycotting the proceedings. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzales has been following this story and the proceedings. Good morning, Claudia. Good morning. No. Well so fairly short today. This morning. What happened? Yes, it all went by very quickly, all said, and done and under 12 minutes. This is a very traumatic Shift from what we saw last week with hours and hours of testimony at least 20 hours of questioning Barrett by the members on the panel, both Republicans and Democrats, But today Democrats boycotted they did not show up. Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee sidestepped that no show to move barrettes nomination forward to the full Senate. Democrats said they were boycotting because they wanted to highlight the damage that bear it would do to healthcare, reproductive and voting rights and the fact that the vote took place amid a presidential election. And this is one battle. Democrats say perhaps the lose, but they're looking to win a bigger war. Graham alluded to that when he talked about the next vote on the Senate floor. Let's take a listen They started this On May For up to May that be a 60 vote requirement in the Senate today, and he's referring to the Senate filibuster there. This is a requirement of 60 votes that was once needed to approve a nomination like barrettes. But the filibuster was eliminated in 2013 as Democrats struggled to move their judges forward when they control the chamber with the tight margin, So that's what Graham is referencing, and he added later that perhaps this will be addressed again in the future. However, now that the Senate is controlled by Republicans with tight margins, they're able to push through barrettes nomination with just 51 votes. It's a preview of the battles to calm that this will go on after barrettes nomination this conversation even as far as she goes to the floor to be considered by the full Senate, and we see if Democrats ultimately changed the dynamics of power in the Senate or the presidency through the upcoming election day. How did Democrat to respond today? They didn't just say nothing right? Yes, there had been rumors for days that Democrats could boycott these hearings. They were facing a lot of pressure from outside groups to even skip out on the hearings last week questioning their it. But they decided not to do that last week. Instead, they did it to Dae. So later yesterday, they confirmed that they would all not show today they're empty seats were filled instead with images of Americans who have used the affordable care act. This is a case that could become it could be considered before the court next month. And so this is one critical issue They've been highlighting all along. They also held a news conference after the vote. This was led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on the steps of the Capitol is take a listen. The nomination of Amy Cockney Barrel. Is the most illegitimate process I have ever witnessed in the Senate, and her potential confirmation will have dire, dire consequences. For the Senate. With his Supreme Court and our entire country for generations to come. So this was the theme they've been driving through this entire process. Barrett will shift the court to a 63 conservative majority, and they say she's a foe to the affordable care act. The landmark abortion rights case, Roe v. Wade, and she could play a role. If there's a dispute in the election. This is activated activated opposition as well. There were protesters outside the capital. Speaking against this nomination, this resulted in about a half a dozen arrests so far today I spoke to Judiciary Committee Democrat Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut yesterday, said the watchword for them is no more business. As usual. He and the other members have been driving home this point that this is a sham process. It's not normal. It's not writing Americans should see it for what it is and probably see more of this in the coming days, because there is so much acrimony over this nomination. Yes, exactly So many reasons. We're in the midst of a pandemic. We're rushing this through in 30 days, one of the fastest, we've seen the fight over health care. And, of course, you know the division between Republicans and Democrats. Really. Exemplified by President Trump pushing this forward and so there's a long history as well of these fights over the Supreme Court in the controversy surrounding these nominations if we go back to 2016, Democrats try to move forward. President Obama's nominee at the time. This is Judge Merrick. Garland and Republicans refused because they said they were so close to an election months away. But here we are now people are early voting and they're pushing this through. So this is set into motion a series of debates to calm and we're even hearing about it from the Democratic nominee Joe Biden this morning. We understand he told 60 minutes that he's going to create A study a commission to bipartisan commission to study whether they should add more seats to the courts a lot more to come here, including next week, right what happens then? So tomorrow, the nomination for Barrett actually will reach the full Senate floor. It's going to be followed by some procedural votes on Friday, as well as on Sunday. In between, we're going to see a lot of debate an argument back and forth. But the rial final moment for this will come Monday when the full Senate will submit their votes for bear to confirm or vote against her nomination to the Supreme Court. NPR congressional reporter Claudio Gonzalez. Thanks, Claudia. Thanks for having me
Vote to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court scheduled for next week

Because nothing else bug matters. She called me she she referred to me is Daddy. That's all that's all I need. I could actually stop the podcast now. I can stop beauty parent doing anything this. This is the best moment of my life. It is fantastic I don't even need to go into anything else. Because that's the most. They ever happened really. Of put a joke and I kid. But it was really fantastic. Parents out there. You I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about. Even moms out there when they first referred to his mom or Mommy I, it must feel the exact same way. There's no feeling that matches it. Really it's just. It's a really surreal in an unbelievable feeling so i. I love to hear anybody else stories. Of How that feels, and you know Dad's coming up on it. MOM's coming up on it listening. Just wait because it's GonNa. Hit you right in your heart strings, and it's going to be fantastic I almost cried, and still almost crime rate, and that actually ends up being a theme of our interview, but we'll get into that later. Her other developments let I will get into some non selfish developments that she's going through right now so that you do know other things to do to expect as they start hitting this three hundred sixty five days a I, being in this world. She is really moving. She's she's walking. She's getting a lot more confidence at this point in walking. not only is she just like cruising from furniture to furnish furture, but she's actually like walking using gates. We took her. We've been taking her out to the playground a lot because she's really in this pandemic, she's just been so desperate for other child interaction that even if we can't like touch, anybody and we don't know anybody else at the playground. We're taking her there just to be able to see and potentially interact with other with other kids that are around her age, and she'll get there. She'll stand and she'll like. Grab onto the gates and she'll walk up and down the gates, but the biggest thing is that she's like walking distances now. I was there with her the other day doing a handhold walk, you know I'm above her hands over, and we like literally walked from one end of the playground all the way to the other and she did it. She loved it and she's so proud of herself that that she's doing it. She loves doing. Doing these little accomplishment type things. And we try to build up to do that again. Yeah, good job you know and and she loves it. She loves to be proud of herself, and she has these moments of of of. Accomplishment, which are awesome to see the other thing that she's doing this move that I like to call the three sixty spin where she will be sitting playing with a toy and at a know where to start spinning three hundred sixty degrees on her, but just like not to talk to anybody or to look at anybody else, but her toy, but she just we'll start spinning on her, but it is just like the cutest little most hilarious thing that I've ever seen. It gives concerning sometimes because I'm like. Are you just like trying to tell us that you have but worms? Like how like dog would do, but I don't think she does because she doesn't really eat a Lotta dirt. My wife very adamant that she doesn't eat dirt or sand or anything she. My Wife Has mastered the out of your mouth swab of the hand it is. It's actually phenomenal. Her reflexes are uncanny. It's like she's an ex-man or something like that. But this little three sixty sit spin is just like the cutest thing ever. I don't know why I find it so entertaining. Everybody else in my family thinks I'm nuts, but I think it's just the cutest little thing ever to watch this little person. Just be constantly turning around in a circle, not to communicate with anybody just to be turning around in a circle. It's hilarious. But the last major development that she's had over the course this last week is using a fork. She is starting to use a fork at this moment in time. You know as they start to get to to be a year old. You know we've been trying to introduce different utensils, and she still eats mostly with their hands, but we've been trying to introduce the fork and speaker, being proud of herself with these little sense of accomplishment. None is unlike the when she is successfully using Fort, she will you know you have to guide her? Saying sometimes actually like? Poke the piece of food, but once she gets an on their right in her mouth, and then she does this amazing thing we're. She'll just drop the fork like it's a Mike and she just rock the speech. She's like drop the mic drop the fort, and then she starts clapping for herself like she's just so excited. Top it away, this piece of food, smiling, laughing and clapping. Because, she successfully Adolf a fort. It is amazing. It is also petrifying first time to do it because you're like Whoa. Are you gonNa Stab Yourself. What are you doing over here? But she gets it. She's she's pretty intuitive. which is called, and she is just rocking and rolling on this fourteen. She loves using the fork it. It's like a really fun little toy. For her. Obviously, we're using like a baby plastic fork come not like sticking metal in her mouth and stuff like that but. It is. It is really really cute. The way that she just gets so proud of us. Son Starts Clapping. Lake She just wanted NBA championship when she after she eats a piece of food off of Fort is just unbelievably cute and this is just really cute age man right now. Right as they're about to turn line. They're communicating. They're doing stuff. They're trying to do things on their own.

"Pressure numbers people with this kind of family history one things to be excellent with to control what we can, but we also have to get people to realize that even if they don't have any evidence of atherosclerotic disease by middle aged that maybe other they're still destined to manifest some later in life and you wanted to have people think about they want to be in good health to see their children grow up, and hopefully their their grandchildren grow up. You WANNA get! Get people motivated so that they don't have heart failure. They don't have disabling arrhythmias. I think the motivation is so key soon. Matter what area of cardiology were in clearly, we WANNA try to motivate people and have them take a more optimistic view that they can change the natural history of atherosclerotic vascular disease. That's such an important point because you know breaking through what our patients has. The curse of our family I can imagine for an individual might feel very nihilistic, but I recently realized that. Even if we the era when we think are going to start looking at genetic risk factors and genetic risk scores that somebody with a built in genetic risk of atherosclerotic disease, need not be deterministic, and still can derive a lot of benefit from lifestyle changes, so with that David I want to thank you for joining us today. A lot of the script here at the questions and the cases were based on. Your review is absolutely excellent. Could you tell us a little bit about what you took away from writing the review and how it's impacted your approach to patient care of course, thank you. I'm it so since I started working with the. Center in two thousand, thirteen, I was really enamored by this simplistic approach that they took the cardiovascular disease prevention and how Dr Blumenthal Doctor Blah colleagues really adopted ABC approach, not only for its ability to easily translate the information to patients, but for how effective it can be at promoting cardiovascular disease prevention through I assessing individuals read optimizing these risk factors with appropriate preventative management with the primary focus on improving lifestyle intervention, including a hard healthy diet..

NPR's Peter Overby and carry Levin of the center for public integrity examined his conflicts with ethics officials and Peter has their story in January twenty seventeen Wilbur Ross sat facing the Senate Commerce Committee. The senators had to decide if he was qualified to become secretary of commerce if confirmed Mr Ross would bring decades of business, entrepreneurial and civic experience to this important position chairman John thune a Republican open to hearing Mr Ross is perhaps best known for his expertise and revitalizing distressed businesses. Such as those in the United States steel industry Wilbur Ross, Donald Trump became friends in the ninety s Rossett engineered a break for Trump who's in distress over casino, bankruptcy. The committee members had. Questions of all of the billions of dollars in holdings that you owe. Now, you have more than ninety percent. You have resigned from fifty positions Senator Richard Blumenthal. A democrat was referring to the agreement. Ross had signed with the office of government ethics rush. Promised to sell or resigned from scores of entities. Most within three or six months. The process has been enormously complex and challenging and costly to you personally. Correct though, sir Ross vowed to recuse himself from any remaining conflicts intend to be quite scrupulous about refusal any topic with the slightest scintilla of down, but Ross's portfolios like nesting dolls companies within companies within companies as for that signed Essex agreement Ross has failed to divest assets. When he said he would despite telling ethics officials he had done so two years after the hearing. Here's blumenthal. Take on. I feel that essentially he misled the committee and Senator Ron Wyden went further. He's the top democrat on the finance committee the breadth and the brazenness of his ethical lapses are just staggering soon. Blumenthal and widen have each asked for investigation to Russia's compliance with the ethics laws. Other Trump appointees have had flashier ethics problems using your helicopter to go horseback riding or seeking a chick fillet franchise first spouse, but it's Ross who keeps ethics watchdogs up at night Delaney. Marsh goes ethics council to campaign legal center, which filed a complaint against Ross last summer. He has escaped sort of the more popular scrutiny because there's kind of sophisticated violations, and they're a little bit wonky in terms of what the actual issue is earlier this month. The government's chief ethics officer did something. So rare observers couldn't recall the last time it happened Emory rounds director of the office of government ethics refuse to certify Ross's annual financial disclosure. He said it wasn't accurate round acted seven months after his predecessor at the agency publicly criticized Ross for failing to abide by his signed ethics agreement. He said Ross was risking potential criminal violations. Ross blamed an inadvertent error, he noted the asset cited by rounds who's worth only thirty seven hundred dollars, but the dollar amount isn't the problem. Don, FOX is a former general counsel and acting director at the ethics agency. First of all it says that neither secretary Ross nor the White House take ethics in government seriously. It's best window-dressing for them Ross's ethics situation echoes Trump's own. They both have complex opaque financial assets impossible to understand based on what's publicly known both have come under attack for failing to divest and both have been accused of acting in their own interest instead of the public's there have been rumors that Trump might replace Ross. But when we asked the White House if there were any ethical concerns response lauded, his work advocating for the president's agenda. No mention of ethics Ross's problems started soon after he arrived at commerce. He says he started finding assets that should have been divested. He defended himself on CNBC everything that's been done has been done in compliance with the office of government ethics. So these are people second guessing, the president put Ross in charge of an investigation of steel imports Wilbur, and I have been working on this for a long time. But Ross was slow and selling his stake in an investment firm called. Invesco in Invesco was getting into the Chinese steel industry to Commerce Department later said there were no conflicts of interest, but Ross's remaining Invesco steak went up in value by at least a million dollars before he sold it and other issues emerged a family trust about which little has been disclosed accompany Ross intended to keep called diamond s shipping democratic Senator Maria Cantwell challenged him on at the confirmation hearing is that correct? You're not divesting from now. The that is correct. The research we've done suggests that there has never been shipping. Case come before the department of commerce, the Commerce Department does oversea trade and tariffs which directly affect how shipping firms make their money. Can't well and five other senators have asked the Commerce Department's inspector general to investigate Ross Ross told NPR in the center for public integrity that he rectified errors. Once he discovered them. He said he remained committed to the American people. And would continue to seek the guidance of ethics officials professor. Kathleen Clark specializes in government ethics law at Washington University in sT Louis this record by Ross and by others of multiple misstatements on ethics forms. I think demonstrates what kind of commitment to ethics. This administration has which is essentially contempt. Virginia candor is a former ethics official now in Essex council for the non-profit citizens for sponsor ability and ethics in Washington. She said that when congress wrote the ethics in government law twenty five years ago, they didn't envision a Wilbur Ross or his types of assets or his types of conflicts of interests or his disclosure, deficiencies, Kanter and other ethics experts. Say changes are needed especially more transparency and stronger enforcement strong enough to bring high net worth appointees like Wilbur Ross into compliance with the ethics laws.

"blumenthal" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"The public needs to know what is going on. I demanded and I'm trying to organize everybody that I can to call for this Republic. This report to be released to the public. There's there Senate legislation if I'm not mistaken introduced today by Chuck Grassley, and Richard Blumenthal that would essentially require a public version of the report, I think with exceptions made for redacting classified information. Do you foresee something like that passing out of the house in short order? Well, I think it could pass out of the house. Let me just say this the puck. Public has been very patient. They've been waiting. We have heard bits and pieces here and there, and we want to know in the public deserves to know. And so I support the legislation that it should be made public. And if there's classified information that has to be redacted, so be it, but make this report public Steve Mnuchin was one of the people who who's been making the case about the sanctions for Ola der, pasta, the Russian oligarch, who, of course, also employed Paul Manafort had a contact since indicted intermediary named constant Kalinic who would go back and forth between them dare pastas. Businesses have essentially escaped now the sanctions acts from department of treasury because they reorganized in ways the treasury department says they're happy with a lot of people unhappy on Capitol Hill. What's your response to the administration's actions? I'm not happy with it at all. I think that the, you know at the center of this. Question about whether or not the president colluded with Russia with Putin or the oligarchs, etc. Is the question of sanctions, we know that Putin wants these sanctions lifted and I've said from the beginning that I believe in. I don't have the proof. But I believe that Manafort was set to the campaign to be there to ensure that they get Trump elected in every way, they possibly could. And this is an exchange for him lifting the sanctions and don't forget, our president has said that he believes this ancient should be listed a one way or the other. So I just believe that Mnuchin is, of course, a guided by the president they all apart of, you know, this relationship that they have with Russia and Putin and went oligarchs, I mean, when you take a look at all of the allies of this president that's involved in this whole question, you cannot help but ask yourself what's at the bottom of this. And. I think it has been asked more than one time. Why are they all lying? I think it's about sanctions. And I think is very important for us to continue to pressure to get those sanctions continued at enforce and not to do what we've just witnessed. They're trying to do. And that is be involved with de listing on the sanctions congresswoman, Maxine Waters. Thank you for your time tonight. You're welcome. Thank you next. We'll Roger stone testify against President Trump. I'll talk to someone who wants considered Roger sodas mentor. Sam number on what angle he thinks. Stone is playing in two minutes..

"And that was a great blessing to Israel. And I really admire the president for having the will and determination to make that happen. Well, and he's done that time, and again as you mentioned in dealing with Kim, Jon UN dealing with Russia NATO, for example, same story as with the South Koreans. He goes to NATO says, hey, look at you guys promised two percent. You should be paying two percent. They said, well, nobody asked but then before he went to ask that question or even after he asked that question same response from the mainstream media, and all these people who I think who are they are very well marginalizing themselves, Stephen you, and I are MENA phase. And you know, when we re. Read the Old Testament and how? The office of the prophet was treated and that is that look at your your office as a prophet was validated. By the results of what it was that. You were prophesying and prophesying is really when you really think about it. There's a lot of commonalities with people who are in the media and communications. And if you do not have. Substantiation of what it is that you are offering an opinion about or some sort of vision, and it goes by the wayside the thing is that is annoying to me as they still continue to put people in front of the camera and give them place, and it's like looking like Richard Blumenthal during the cavenaugh, which of all people. I mean, I think it's quite interesting. I often find that people self indict and Richard Blumenthal, talked about well, you know, if you're untruthful in one thing, it means untruthful and others, right. And you're saying Richard Blumenthal. You know? Are you kidding me? And so I called him to dick. He has such a way with word. You're right. The left. You know, we all do that. There was all this kind of shady stuff going on that when they looked at judge Kavanagh's life and his record and could find nothing to disqualify him. Right at the end, they through this kind of hand grenade. You know with the idea that maybe it would. Up his nomination. And thankfully, it didn't. I think it did something that almost nothing else could do and that has unified the Republican party because there's basically three Republican party. So they don't cooperate. Right. What I would call the establishment, you know, the bushes and right Romney and whole group. And then you've got the tea party, which has been pretty marginalized. But it it certainly exists. And then you've got the Trump Republican, you know, that's the way it's going. But can you believe how? Mitch McConnell and Senator Lindsey Graham and others God right behind the president that they showed a little bit of backbone. I was gonna say they discovered they do it again. And again, they discovered their spine in the process. That's a good thing. We're talking with Stephen Strang..
