Fixing the Immigration Problem
"I want to talk to you about your article yesterday updated last night. Biden is hoping small changes go a long way on immigration. Look, the size of the problem is immense. Would you explain to people the small ball that Joe Biden is proposing that I'm going to quarrel with you a little bit, but always aware that Michael is one of the good guys he tries to get it right, but I got a quarrel with him. Go ahead, Michael. Okay. So coral away went after this. I mean, I think, look, the immigration system has been having problems for decades, presidents in both parties have struggled to deal with it. It's multifaceted. There are problems on the other side of the border in terms of what is driving people to leave their homes and try to come to this country. That involves a global migration patterns that involves the economic and political fortunes of people far from here. And then when people do come, there have been problems for decades in what we do with them and how we deal with the number of people who come over. And one of those problems, not in doesn't solve the whole thing. But one of those problems has been, how fast can you deal with the asylum process? Somebody comes over and says, hey, I claim asylum. I want to live in the United States because I'm being persecuted in my own country. That decision and other immigration decisions have taken so long over the years that when a person claims asylum, it can take four or 5, 7 years before that case is finished. And in the meantime, where do you put the people do you let them go if you let them go while they're kind of awaiting the outcome of their case? What happens to them? Do they get to work? If

Why Didn't the Torah Abolish Slavery Completely?
"Incremental good is always greater than the dramatic good. That is my answer. I have many answers. Why didn't the Torah abolish slavery completely? The answer is nobody would have obeyed it. Slavery was as normal until the 19th century everywhere on earth as breathing. It was a given some people will be slaves. It was just a given part of life. So it wouldn't have worked. So what it did was it humanized slavery. So for example, there is a law in exodus, and I beg people to read my rational Bible because I beg them too. Oh, thank you. I know you do. You practically memorized it. Thank you. No, no, it means the world to me. There is a law. People don't know this. There was a law in exodus. You can not return a slave to its owner. This is thousands, 3000 years before the dred Scott decision. Which said, you do return you do return, because it's not a full human. It's property. You can not, by the way, this is a side issue, but it always bothered me. I don't judge people by today's standards. You have to judge them in their time. However, I don't understand any believing Jew or Christian who defended the transatlantic slave trade. It was so counter to biblical law
'Overcoming Evil' Author Rick Joyner Exposes Powerful Evil Strongholds
"To our friend doctor Rick Joyner, JO Y, and he are the book is overcoming evil in the last days. Rick in the, these three strongholds that you mentioned, these strongholds of evil racism, witchcraft, and the religious spirit, there are a lot of people, I think, listening to this program, they're not familiar with some of the language we're using when they hear witchcraft. They don't quite understand what we're talking about. Obviously, we mean the occult, there are dark spiritual forces, all spirituality is not good spirituality. If you believe in the God of the Bible, you know that there are hosts of demons who wore against God's angels. This is called reality folks. This is the invisible reality of the spirit. So Rick, when you say that this is one of the strongholds today, how do you mean it? Well, I think what you're talking about, the occult, is one form. Actually think that is the smaller form of witchcraft. It's like the tree of knowledge of good and evil, the good side of that tree was just as deadly as the evil side. Rooted in human goodness, human idealism and things like that. I think what I would call white witchcraft charismatic witchcraft not speaking of a charismatic movement would have cares human charisma, basically witchcraft is counterfeit, spiritual authority, it's used in any spirit other than the Holy Spirit. To manipulate to control, to dominate, to influence others, even to do the work of God. I believe many Christian leaders are using more counterfeit spiritual authority than they are the real thing.
Jared Bernstein: Analysts Ignore the Restart of Student Loan Payments
"Take a listen to this cut 14 go It's been a brutal couple of weeks for the market obviously Awful inflation numbers Now the likelihood of a hard landing maybe even a global recession according to some The student loan forgiveness in the middle of all this adding hundreds of billions even a $1 trillion to the demand side Doesn't that make the fed's job even more difficult your allies Larry summers Jason Furman both warned that that's a problem The president once again bowing to the far left Does that justify increasing demand in making things worse right at this time Jared I know you know it's no way you can sell this to me with a straightforward Wait a second Let me try the following because this is a fact that I is not reflected in the rap you just gave me Did you ask And if you ask Jason and Larry about this I think they'll agree You should try and find out for yourself Okay The thing you left out was restart that is restarting student loan payments which of course have been in forbearance since the pandemic began That begins in January And if you actually look at the numbers month by month the amount of restart even with debt forgiveness basically offsets the amount Let me see if I can understand this This is the game You ready
Doug Mastriano: Thank You, Liz Cheney
"Cheney, the outgoing Republican congresswoman from Wyoming says that she would campaign against and she singled out two people carry Lake in Arizona and and you, and I'd like to get your reaction to that. Teddy Roosevelt said you could judge a man's character based off of who his enemies are. So thank you, Liz. Liz has been on the wrong side of history C and her dad. I happen to fight in two of her three of her daddy's wars and we watched the Cheney family get rich off these wars here. So consider the source. Well, well said, and it's a great point.
Adam Laxalt: Opponents Rely on Out-Of-State Donors
"Your opponent is a radical radical leftist This isn't hyperbole She supported this Minnesota freedom funding where they were actually bailing out people who were rioting and burning down America's cities If that were a Republican like you doing that you'd be in jail right now in a gulag in Washington D.C. This is a radical Don't let her get off with this moderate crap It's all an act Yeah look the only reason some of these races are tight it's because these Democrats have unlimited money and my opponent has for example 90% of her money comes from California New York and they're showering in these small dollar donations And all these things our candidates got so outspent over the summer that they're buying these races They're recasting themselves this centrist a lot of our candidates couldn't respond over the summer and now that we're all up on TV and we're actually able to tell the other side of the story It doesn't matter how much she pretends like she supports law enforcement The reality is all the law enforcement that supported her in 16 when she was a former AG she got law enforcement They all flipped to me because they knew that during BLM and during the last few really tough years for law enforcement she was nowhere to be found And every major national vote where she could have made her third she voted with the Democrats And as she does for the economic agenda for the border policies and so they just are willing to say whatever it takes to win and we need small dollar donors And I know by the way I know it's a tough time And the inflation crisis is hitting our donors Much harder than is their rich donors from San Francisco and New York But they need to dig deep they got to help candidates like myself and Adam Lang sol dot com And these key races
Is There Hope for the Future of America? Dr. Mike Burgess Weighs In
"Hope not that we're going to turn the conservatives will win back the House Republicans will win back the house and hopefully the Senate that at least can put a damper on some of these things and moving forward because I mean, we went through an administration that frankly just does it seem to care. Just your last hot take on that. I mean, what's the feeling right now in D.C.? Well, if the election is about security, if it's about immigration, if it's about border security, if it's about cost of living that has been out of control for months and months and months, I think Republicans have a good have a good shot. There will be a lot of effort on the other side. A lot of time and effort spent on trying to make the election about other things. But look, the president in his 60 minutes interview the other day said, oh, inflation is just an inch up. I'm sorry. It's an inch, but it's a puncture wound, and it's hurting American families. And they're dealing with it every day. Sure, gas prices have come down a little bit because you exhausted this strategic petroleum reserve to artificially depress the price. That's going to run out about the same time that we come into this fall election, but that was that was the strategy to deal with inflation is let's just buy down gas prices with our strategic petroleum reserve, but every other price, every other pocketbook issue is hitting people and sitting them pretty hard. Supply chain continues to be a problem. I don't know about where you live in Georgia but I'll tell you in north Texas. It's not unusual for me to go into my neighborhood Walmart and see a lot of things that are just not available. A lot of empty shelves that has been going out at one point. You said, well, that's a pandemic. President said the pandemic's over. When are we going to start to find the goods we need on the supermarket shelves? So these are these are big questions that people who are going to the polls as follow are going to have to answer if you let yourself get distracted by something that it's not about. And that's what the Democrats are going to try to do.
Doug Mastriano Defends Wearing Confederate Uniform
"And back with dogmatist Rihanna who's running as a GOP candidate for governor in Pennsylvania. Doug, there was a, I don't know if you'd call it a controversy or a scandal, but the left tried to go after you some time ago because they found some old photograph apparently of you evidently wearing a confederate outfit and they were like, this shows a dog mastery ano has confederate sympathies when I'm thinking, wait a minute. This guy's from Pennsylvania, the site of the Gettysburg battle. I really doubt he has confederate sympathies. Talk a little bit about that incident because I want to then go to a broader discussion of the Civil War and our moment in America today. I represent the Gettysburg area that's in my district, by the way. It's just so hilarious to us. That's the best they can do. They want to criticize me on the one day that I grew up like a Democrat. Really guys, so what can I say? I mean, first of all, you know, as people know, lots of people dress up in both union and confederate, they do Civil War reenactments which occur all over Pennsylvania and Maryland and old Civil War battlefields and so on, and you're a student of history, right? Talk about leaving aside the incident itself. Talk a little bit about are we at a stage where America today is as divided as it was in the 1850s. I'm not saying we're at the point of a Civil War, but I'm saying, are we at the point where there's been a sort of secession of the American mind? You know, I'm torn on that. So this is probably the most divisive moment since the Civil War. I do believe that we are in a far worse way in the 1850s and 1860s in the midst of the Civil War. We had an incident on the floor of the Congress or one Democrat beat down the debt to death with his cane, a Republican congressman. I mean, we haven't gone that far, but we are seeing chilling specters of this. We saw North Dakota at the arranged Democrat driving down that beautiful young man. We've seen many incidents, potential assassin assassin of the Republicans at the baseball game was a Bernie supporter and so we're seeing echoes and shadows, the rhetoric coming out of Biden, I think, is dangerous because it's encouraging extreme people on his side of the aisle to actually view people who do they disagree with as some kind of danger.

Can Rihanna Carry a Super Bowl Halftime Show by Herself?
"I guess the breaking news right now is that Rihanna, and it's Sunday afternoon. Rihanna is gonna be the Super Bowl halftime guest, okay. I don't know why I'm not, I'm not really that excited, you know? You know, I like when a band is the guest or a singer that's just really dynamic like prince I'm not sure is Rihanna beyond singing umbrella, what am I going to hear Mark? What am I going to hear from Rihanna? It's going to make me go, oh my God, it's so great that she's doing the halftime show. I don't know. They have to couple her with somebody else and obviously there's going to be somebody else on stage with her, but her alone, Rihanna alone, I don't know, not to mention she said no a year or two ago because she was siding with Colin Kaepernick. I don't want people like that on the Super Bowl halftime show. I don't need that kind of politic bullshit.
Dick Morris Shares His Predictions for the 2022 Midterms
"Talking to our friend dick Morris. He has a new book out called the return Trump's big 2024 comeback. It's not mere wishful thinking. But before we get to 2024, of course, dick, we have to get through this year's election. What do you think is happening? Well, I think the Republicans are going to take the house and the scent. And I just done some research on the polling that's out there. In 2020, there was a constant in evident political bias in the polling in favor of Biden. And against Trump, in fact, the American association of survey research of survey researchers had a convention in 2021. And they adapted a statement saying that the polling in 2020 was the worst in 40 years. And that it had a 5 point average democratic bias in each poll, never pro Republican, but always provide and I think they're at it again. I just went to the poll numbers in Georgia, for example, where one of the polling firms Siena says that virtual workers losing by 6 points. But yet the sample that it's based on is one in which Democrats outnumber Republicans by 6 points. And in the election of 2018, Democrats and Republicans were even in the way they vote 50 50. So that poll is 6 point skewed in favor of the Democrats. And I found the same pattern in Ohio, skewing against Vance in favor. Advance in favor of Ryan. And in Wisconsin, skewing against the Republican Johnson in favor of the Democrat points. Needing the deliberately to hype fundraising for their side and knock it for the Republican side.

Liberty University’s Dave Brat Breaks Down the State of the Economy
"There is a tremendous amount of economic confusion today, actually just going on generally, to help unpack that is a brilliant economic mind, Dave brat, from Liberty University, Dave, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Hey, Charlie, thank you. Patriot mobile is great, by the way. I was just up with her team at D.C., your spot on. They're really great. They're doing a good job. They're actually solving the cell phone crisis via conservative approach patriot mobile dot com slash Charlie just to remind everybody. So let's just start with the top line news. There's so much happening here, Dave, the Dow is down 600 points below 30,000 bear market, the economy is all over the place. We have these contra indicators, how would you rate you're a doctor, not a medical doctor, but you'll pretend to be a medical doctor. How would you rate the health of the American economy right now? Oh, seriously, I mean, the economy, right? Which is different than the stock market. That's econ one O one. The economy is a corpse laying on a table. And we've been shoving blood through it in the form of fiscal stimulus spending through the federal government. And 9 trillion on the Federal Reserve balance sheet. So 31 trillion in debt on the federal government side, 9 trade to keep it alive and it's still in a recession for the last 6 months growing at zero. So the economy is a one or a two and then the markets follow, right? So earnings are going to go down, profits are going to go down. We're going into a recession, the fed has said we're going to force a recession to get the wage wage price spiral down, right? Inflation is bad enough, but if inflation makes its way into the wage rates, that becomes what they call an economics sticky. Stinky prices would stay around for years. And so the fed has to end that. So they're engineering a recession and you had it right. We're about ready to find probably another 10% or maybe even 20% down in the markets.
Brandon Tatum on Why Race Isn't a Big Convo Heading Into the Midterms
"You find it interesting about how out of all the national conversations right now, race is not a primary conversation heading into the midterms. What are we supposed to make of that? Well, I think that, you know, we got to look at the midterms as a political strategy on both sides, right? I don't think that a lot of these politicians are genuine in their approach. I don't think they really have a vested interest in fixing any issues. What they want to do is promote an issue that gets people riled up to get their emotions running, get them in a level of or in a position of fear, and then they can run a campaign on that. And if you look at the Democrat party in the black community, the reason why they've been having a black community in a stronghold or in a chokehold I'd say is because all they do is pitch promises every single year. We promise to do this. We promise to do this, look, the scary white man is out here ready to get you. We're going to protect you this year. Well, we didn't protect you last year. We're going to protect you this year. It's the Republicans fall. I mean, they just continue to push a narrative for political expediency and they're not addressing any of the real issues because if Democrats really cared about the black community, they will be addressing crime in the inner city. They will be addressing the police department and not in a way in which they're expressing that they need to revise and rethink policing. They would be saying that we're going to fund police. We're going to get them better training. We're going to get more minorities involved in policing so they can patrol their communities that they're familiar with. But that's not the approach. Charlie, they're just out for getting votes and promise you something that they can have leverage on for the next a hundred years.
Joe Biden, Democrats Are Projecting Hate in Their Rhetoric
"Two times two times since this kid was killed. Biden has been out there ratcheting up the rhetoric. And that's why I do believe that they are hoping that their followers, their followers take the bait. And target, again, Joe Biden actually yesterday at this speech Joe Biden said that the Republicans that Republicans were going to be guilty for blood on the streets. What have we been talking about for ages on this radio program that when the Democrats do that? When they make a charge about Republicans typically, they are projecting and they are the ones guilty of whatever they're accusing the other side of doing. The only people that are being left blooding and beaten in the streets, ladies and gentlemen, happen to be conservatives. Happy to be Trump supporters. But they don't want to have that conversation. The mainstream media is not honest enough to actually call out the Democrats for any of this stuff. Not a single national news reporter had the courage had the moral fortitude to actually to actually ask the Biden administration to ask them whether or not they regret the language they're using or if they wanted a retract the language they're using if they wanted to walk back the language they're using they'd nobody did that. Nobody did that.
Caller: The Divide Within the Republican Party
"You know, I was thinking about your common earlier about the vibe that seems to exist within the Republican party and how you don't want to necessarily try to turn on people within your own party, but at the same time, what is your threshold for how long you stand for them to sit and sell it and not get on board and unify what's one of the better ideas coming out of the guys like Holly and McCarthy. Yeah, but I don't know that there's a zero sum game. In other words, I don't think there's a threshold. We got two different factions within the Republican Party. We got the fighters and we've got the go along to get along establishment types and we still have to figure out how to unify both sides, right? I agree, but how long before some of those divisions affect how some of these elections turn out or even how if we gain the majority in the House, that there's not infighting over certain issues and unifying time to really start to correct some of the things that need to be corrected.

"To take notice. Especially cities that aren't traditionally considered to be hot. Because investing in keeping temperatures low isn't just the cool new thing to do. It's essential to saving lives and preventing worse outcomes from the most dangerous extreme weather in the United States. I think that we are more prepared this year than we were last year. And I think that we have identified strategies that we can deploy. I do think we are moving in the right way. I think what we are seeing is there are a lot of departments that are now realizing that this is an issue that they have a part in. Momentum is there. We are starting to see the gears moving and now it's just a matter of allowing for our development to catch up with our climate. PS, if you're facing high temperatures in your area, here are a few tips to beat the heat. Cover your windows with blankets or sheets to keep some of the sun out of your home during the day. And if you don't have air conditioning, keep those windows open and run fans to get air circulating. You can also miss yourself with cool or room temperature water or put a cold compress on the back of your neck. And if you're lucky enough to have air conditioning, but you have some friends who don't, throw a cool down party and have everyone over. But maybe don't serve alcohol because staying hydrated is key when it's hot out. We'll also leave a link to other tips in

"Auctions off rembrandt and pollock pattern quilts. It sounds very specific. Also i thought and made a great point that if bob insists that the red in the blanket or the quilt was part of the design. Then why would the dry cleaner make a note of the fact that he couldn't get the stain out you know. Bob must've told him. There was a stain elsa like that. Bob tried to go down the road of saying that he brought multiple items to the dry cleaner but the receipt that was found in his car locked into just the one blanket. And then as far as bob stopping at the dry cleaner when he's on the run i thought that was just peak bobbers. You know when you get through a big task like dismembering your friend.

It was doing by the red state when the police went to pick up that blanket at the dry cleaners and the owner bought the blanket forward. He said well just let the guy know.

Bob like saying that he was plastered makes the fact that he sawed through human bones seem a little bit more palatable but it was pretty unbelievable if he had consumed that much whiskey. He would have been the body on the floor. Not morris black. They probably both would've been on the floor. Because moore's black would've been dead.

They don't think vernon jones can and they're looking at a mayor and the mayor and his wife used to live in a reproduction of jefferson davis plantation. Home jefferson day. Yes that jefferson davis. The president of the confederacy. That guy probably has some baggage and they're worried that donald trump's involvement in racist like that against brank georgia could hand the state to stacey abrams. And they're very worried that if the president has his way with his preferred candidate for the senate that they could keep raphael warnock in the senate. That's where republicans are concerned that they just that he just doesn't have a good track record of picking candidates in races now some hope for the republicans is they point out president. Trump's candidate in texas special election lost. And they're hoping may be voters are willing to assess the candidate's on their own But republican strategists are leaving anything for chance They are viciously attacking herschel walker to try to keep them out of the race. They are stockpiling. Opposition research on those people running against. Brian kip because they are very adamant that the president could cost the gop georgia. They don't believe it was stolen. They do believe he lost it and they do believe he can keep them from winning it but in other places and this is where the republicans and the democrats find a lot of common ground the media would. Have you believe that if a candidate. Donald trump that canada's gonna lose actually the democrats themselves are willing to admit that that actually is gonna help republicans and a lot of house districts. Keep in mind. The democrats thought they were gonna sweep through house districts in texas in two thousand twenty. They wound up not only not winning any. They lost every single one. They lost all of them in fact they lost some of their own seats in texas. Why because contrary to the media perception in a lot of the country donald trump actually helps in swing districts. There are exceptions to the rule. Georgia's one of them. The northern atlanta suburbs are trending democrat so donald trump actually can hurt republican's there but in a lot of suburban areas now the critical theory stuff the woke stuffed the transgender stuff. The economic stuff. It's hurting democrats. And when donald trump gets involved in points out. Hey you didn't have crimewave. When i was president it hurts the democrats way way more than it hurts. The republicans and the democrats are willing to acknowledge it so as we head into twenty twenty two what. What's what's the prevailing consensus here. The democrats and republicans. I've talked to both agree. The democrats are going to be in trouble..

"They talk themselves out of winning but there was a six point. Swing back to the gop among white suburban voters so donald trump not on the ballot. There was a six point. Swing back to the gop in the suburbs in georgia and that gets to how both sides see donald trump despite the media bluster and despite the democratic talking point the democrats and the republicans boasts say the republicans are hurt by donald trump. The way progress the way democrats are hurt by progressives for a number of reasons first. Let's talk about trump. Let's talk about marjorie. Taylor green marjorie taylor. Green is the congresswoman for north west georgia who the media has highlighted all her wacky views from the jewish space laser to at one point Being sympathetic to cunanan for what. She apologized for occasionally making comparisons between vaccines to the holocaust and stuff like that. There's a problem in that is it. You always see republicans come out. And denounce her. And kevin mccarthy the leader of the republicans in the house nor mitch mcconnell come out and wrap their arms around her so is really hard to tie her to the leadership of the republican party. But when ilhan o'meagher says something anti semitic. Nancy pelosi comes out and her when alexandria. 'cause you cortez comes out and says something nutty the democrats embrace your policy positions. When corrie bush comes out and says we need to de-fund the police chuck schumer's on the floor of the senate praising her for their eviction moratorium so the democrats and the media mainstream. They're progressive nuts in ways. The gop does not mainstream people like marjorie taylor green. It's very hard for the media to declare marjorie taylor. Green the face of the gop. Win kevin mccarthy and donna and mitch mcconnell around their conditioner and that gets to donald trump he may praise merger dealer green. But guess guess guess guests guests guests. Guess what is the major difference between donald trump and alexandria. Oh qazi oh cortez. He's not on the ballot and she will be. She's an elected member of congress who gets street credit and facetime in the media and donald trump does.

"That's that's not a surprise at all what is a surprise. Is the washington post editorial board which undoubtedly an objectively leans to the left is also blasting the eviction moratorium. Now why do the eviction moratorium come about came about because joe biden had to Make kissy face with progressive activists because the progressive activists were beaten bloody in ohio on tuesday night in the ohio. Love congressional district nina turner. The darling of the left wing was beaten by joe biden and jim clyburn preferred candidate szanto brown and the problem for the democratic. Progressives is it's very clear. The establishment is lining up rapidly against them headed into campaign season. And they're spitting mad and they're ready to sabotage. Joe biden's agenda including the infrastructure deal. Joe biden needs the infrastructure deal according to the democrats. I've talked to. It's going to be the last major thing. Joe biden gets to through congress about that. We are six months in to the administration. The election is more than a year away. The midterms and the democrats are already saying. This is the last big thing. Joe biden's going to get to do unless progressives blow it up. Because they're mad so joe biden had to do something and that was the eviction moratorium he had to do it to get the progressives to not blow up his infrastructure deal now concur it too that he knows it's unconstitutional. They all know it's unconstitutional. There's trying to buy some time. They don't think courts are going to stop them. They they're going to be able to to run it through for a month or two before they get something and that'll buy them some time to get some money out to assist landlords renters. It's the bureaucracy that's hung up but there's a bigger problem here the democrats in so doing this. They have elevated people like cory bush out. Ginger kazu cortes. They've been praising corey bush for inspiring the eviction moratorium in what is cory bush due to reward them. She goes on television immediately. Endorses defunding police. While saying she hires private security for herself. But you can't hire private security for you. The democrats have a real problem with the progressives they undisciplined and they're not in it to win it. They're in it to advance an agenda and that's a dangerous thing in politics. Now this is where the cynicism of you and me comes in in politics both sides just want to be the leaders. The republicans would have be charged. The democrats would be judge if nothing gets done. It's okay as long as our side leads. The progressives wanna get.

"No one would wanna play that on the radio. I suppose i've just. I've never the the the the guy she wanted define themselves by their online persona. I got a real life. I i got a wife. I got kids. And i find over time just being accessible and a willingness to engage other people is a good thing i should be able to have fringe who are democrats who are progressives who disagree with me on politics and i should be able to relate to them. And it's it's mind boggling to me the number of people who get mad at me or or cast doubts on me because i'm friends with democrats. It's actually useful. One of the uses of it is i can have conversations with them on background and get a sense of how they see the world shaping up in politics and i can have conversations with republican political strategists and see how they see the political world shaping up and i've been doing that and i wanna spend a little bit of time with you right now. On how democrats and republicans see twenty twenty two shape up see the landscape and the reason why now is because we are six months into the biden administration and remarkably the democrats and republicans agree on where things are headed and they can't say so publicly the reason they can't say so publicly is important for you to understand. Both sides have online trolls. Who will come out to get them. But it's actually far worse on the democratic side. It's not good on the republican side. It's way better than it used to be. You know in back in two thousand sixteen Then candidate donald trump Mean tweeted me and people showed up at my house. The democratic strategists could lose their jobs if they said publicly with their saying privately because the democratic strategists understand. What you all know to be true. They have a problem with the progressive wing of the democratic party. And they're seeing it in their polling data and however bad they're pulling data may be and they're willing to admit that that they don't really have a handle on how they need to fix their polling. They can see the concerns already in the polling and the presumption among democratic strategist. I've talked to is that they should add a couple of points to the republican side from here on out in their polling. And when you do. It's actually pretty brutal. So what am i getting at here. Let me let me give you the lay of the land as we move forward. Let's take the eviction moratorium. It is not a surprise that fox news conservative talk radio national review and conservative outlets are focusing on landlords and the plight of landlords not not the winners but the plight of landlords..

"I don't get it again. Maybe democrats start do politics very well. I mean banks suggested that it was the biden administration that the attacks were actually the fall to the biochemistry. Investing the left. So that's the other point of this chain. Which is one guy as a material witness jim jordan and the other guy banks did come out yesterday and say well. I don't agree with committee because it needs to investigate the left so yeah you shouldn't be on the committee if you don't agree to the tons of the committee and in general like this whole people sound social media today would politico playbook email this morning saying well. This is great. this is really bad. it's not. I'm one of them. I'm wondering is given to win. Scrubbing is not rocket science. This is not both sides. If you're investigating and insurrection. You don't put pro insurrection. People on the investigating committee. This is not rocket at you. Know if you're investigating nine eleven you wouldn't put people who say nine eleven was an inside job of the towers came down on the committee investigating on eleven. This is hard. And i don't understand why more democrats are not saying this stuff. Adam smith to be chair of the house on sunday and he did say on my show yesterday he made the nine eleven point but just like more of them should be pointing out that. Jim jordan is a material witness a lotta these republicans. We don't know what ties. They had to the insurrection. We don't know about the supposed tools that were given to insurrection some allegations that we don't know what causations had with the white house. We only found out that mo brooks spoke at the rally of the olympics. When he said you kickoff take names we only found up. The white house told him to give that speech after he was sued and he came out and gave his defense that he was on federal government. Business so what conversations between the white house members of congress. What compensation will have between members of congress and insurrection. it's yeah. I would rather not have the accused members of congress as part of the investigation. Yeah crazy idea. I want to ask you a media question about this. So playbook writes this morning. That republicans voted to overturn the election. Have a quote legitimate grievance. Now and it pelosi's move will quote. Make the investigation even easier to dismiss for people who aren't diehard members of team. Blew my question is how are these supposedly smart reporters so easily duped by some of the dumbest fucking politicians on the planet. Well where do you thinks going to comeback. Two things one is.

"Is a story. But this is what we're going to talk about. We're going to talk about the texas bill. We're going to talk about the fact that you know. Why is every member of congress this morning. Every democrat remember congress not going on tv and putting a statement saying that every republican should domon tucker. Carlson apologized to office a hurry. Done for calling him. not a police. Angry left wing. Political actress put aside the racial stereotype of the angry. Black man. the idea that tucker carlson the highest rated host on the right demand old republican politicians go on his show. Why are they ought to call out. Tucker carlson rachel manno on my network and come out and said you know a certain police officer is not a police officer. Whatever it is in another context can you imagine what the republicans have be doing that they would say democrats should not be able to go on that show anymore they should colorado. We wanna statement from biden statement from pelosi. Where are the two hundred plus house. Democrats today where are they. What are they doing today. Whatever they're doing. I could coming out and fighting and winning these culture because the culture was not going anywhere this democratic strategy. If we're gonna talk about kitchen table issues. Sorry that's not two thousand fourteen. Let's not happening. Well it's not a. It's not a public opinion issue. Either i guarantee if you polled should schools be banned from teaching about martin. Luther king junior like i. I don't need a poll for that was know i know how that would come. Twenty republicans not give gold saw congressional gold medal to capitol police officers. I don't need a pulse again. I think. I don't think it'll be north korean style results to that pole so the other looney bullshit from republicans this week which you reference came from house minority leader kevin mccarthy who requested to fill three of the five republican seats on the select panel investigating the january six attacks with house members who voted to further the insurrectionist goal of overturning. The election results. Jim jordan jim. Banks and troy nells hus- speaker. Nancy pelosi responded by rejecting jordan and banks which she has the power to do. Mccarthy then responded by pulling all five members from the committee leaving the pelosi appointed liz cheney as the sole republican on the panel for now. There's news reports this morning. That police. Also point republican. Adam zinger Cheney told reporters that she's supportive a police decision and then said this any person who would be third in line to the presidency must demonstrate a commitment to the constitution and a commitment to the rule of law and minority leader. Mccarthy has not done that why do you pelosi put her foot down on this. I'm the megan's. I've been someone who's been very critical of not putting a foot down more when it comes to republican extremism in particular and i was disappointed in a couple of days ago when she said well voting against the election. That's not going to be a dealbreaker. And then within twenty four thirty six hours. She came out and chuck two three hundred. She said in a press conference today the she didn't throw them off because they voted against it because she kept troy nehls on the freshman congressman. Who did vote against which can republicans jumped on that as well today. Well what is it then it. But i think liz cheney said something very interesting played the white accommodation she said. You cannot have two people. One of whom is a material witness to what happened. And the other of whom made comments clearly won't due to sabotage inquire and again. It's sad that requires liz cheney to be doing the oppo stuff but where up to two hundred house. Democrats making this. Why did i have to hear it from liz. Cheney but she's right it's a point that under-discussed which is jim. Jordan was at a meeting in the white house on december twenty first with donald trump with with the other republic with a lot of the other republican crazies at at that meeting to discuss how to overturn the election and what the plan should be for january. The so if you're meeting where you're discussing gender is six. Yeah you should not be investigating not meeting. That's just basics. I'm not sure why. Liz cheney's making that point.

I don't know the uncertaintly i genuinely. I'm finding these last couple days amusing. An intriguing did a memo go out like it's across the board. It's republican senators. It's coordinated box.

There is no battle. I mean the battle was lost when donald trump beat. Seventeen or sixteen. Top republican candidates in twenty-six in the battle was lost when he praised neo. Nazis in republicans did nothing battle was lost when only mitt romney voted to convict last year. The battle was lost. The majority of republicans voted to overturn the election in the house in january. When more voted for twenty twenty twenty sixty. Stop telling me. There is a civil war on the republican.

The favourite is run. The scientists a mini truck man who came to prominence building lego wall with his kid as part of his campaign. I think that tells you everything you need to know about the gop but if some of them are going to shift a bit on vaccine great because we all know john no matter what you and i say on our platforms about maxine no matter what joe biden says on cnn townhall about vaccines they.

But they're expected to begin monday but how much time do you think that they need to get this done till monday go. I'm not being facetious. I'm not being facetious. You had up to twenty republican.

You shake your hand. That's it you keep your word. Most of the democratic and republican senators negotiating. The deal seem to agree with biden that they'll be ready by monday. All the republicans sent a letter to to schumer. Basically saying yeah. We're ready to go on monday. There are a few republican skeptics in the gang What do you think. Many will bi-partisanship prevail the holy grail of washington. There's literally no word annoys me more than bipartisanship. An annoying word. And i'm glad that's close it is. I would also say that. I have instinctive irritation with biff because best body from back to the future and busy in the future for those of you don't know was based on donald trump or people that know that trivia did modeled the character on donald trump at the time the in a good job and they did a good job bipartisanship.

I don't give a shit if the bridge foles down with the assistance. The bridge was saved by only democratic votes republican votes. So i do have an issue. With bipartisanship. There is no bipartisanship. All of this stuff all of this stuff is for me is is secondary to voting rights. I we're gonna talk about it. It was one of the big things on the cnn town as well yesterday the me. I'm kinda like okay. They got some republicans on board great. We saved our bridges. Are we saved out. Democracy like all of this is secondary to the only issue that matters to me right now which is preserving our elections our democracy our voting and for that there is no bipartisanship so great if joe biden can get these people on both to six hundred billion of money grace three point five trillion on the table without the republicans. That's there. They've said now that if they don't get republicans by monday they're going to add the six hundred billion to three point five trillion which will give us full point one trillion. Which is a good amount of money. I would like to see more. But it's a good amount of money. If you take four point one trillion you add it to the two trillion from the american rescue plan.

It's like you say they're they're they're finally coming out for civil rights but it's for the privileged ignoramuses in the south who could get a vaccine.

But i'm insist on being able to walk into a business with without a mosque on without being vaccinated. Be treat like everyone else no.

"Nine thousand nine hundred fifty of them are about our people who hadn't been vaccinated so bind went on to say that the cd will likely announced that every child under twelve should wear masks school and that he expects full. Fda approval for the vaccine sometime between late august and october which would provide firmer legal ground for vaccine mandates many clearly we're in a new phase of the pandemic where things aren't as great as they seemed a few months ago but much better than they were a year ago. How do you think that biden and the white house should handle that. I think they should take it seriously which they kind of all. I think we gotta stop playing catch up for me. It's less about buying more about all of us as a society in a country who want to keep writing. This virus often saying it's time to move on back to normality the number of times. I've opened my nightly show on peacock over the last eight months. Nine months saying well good news. The line at the end of the tunnel cases are down. And then actually one step forward two steps back this very resilient bars it delta variant is a serious thing and i think that the cdc decision in may on mosques. I wasn't a fan of it. At the time in hindsight it could be the biggest blunder that we've seen from this administration. I mean it wasn't a political decision. On joe biden's ads came from the scientists in the cdc fout ouchi willin skin coat. I think it was a mistake. I know why they did it to try and incentivize vaccine uptake. But you're looking now at the american association of academy of pediatrics. Yesterday kids in school the rules as you mentioned a changing. La county is back into almost mandates in public places. I think. I think we're gonna regret that as the summer goes on. Because we've seen the parts of the country that unvaccinated. we don't know even with us. Fully vaccinated people as a whole debate about breakthrough cases. How high or how easy it is to get it or not. And i just feel like at every juncture of this pandemic john we have seen understandably wanting to get on with like get back to normal. Get back to normal. It's understandable human reaction but it just doesn't work in the face something like overnight team. I mean i tried to separate this out into sort of the science and the celtics and on the science. I can understand the cdc decision on masks because the science still says that the. Vaccinations are extraordinarily protective. Even with the breakthrough cases on the rise. One of the reasons that breakthrough cases are on the rise is because there's just more transmission of the virus. And if you do the math that you're going to get a certain senator breakthrough cases even with the vaccines is protective as they are. You're going to get more breakthrough cases. So i understand the science of the mask. I think the challenge was saying okay. You know unvaccinated people are going to put their mass on. And that's going to be on the honor system right so you can't tell if you're in a store who's vaccinate. Not if if no one's wear masks which makes me think that the next place we need to go. Is you know. Vaccine passports are vaccine requirements. So if you're a business or you're a crowded event or you're holding something like that you say look we're not going to force you to get vaccinated but you just can't be part of this this this event. If you're if you're not vaccinate too late to this. I know they should join the right of already. Led the way on this combination by a demonizing vaccine possible.

"both sides" Discussed on The Erick Erickson Show
"This is the country I've served served and defended That all my brothers have served and here right matters. That was lieutenant. Colonel Alexander Van Minh testifying the president's impeachment hearing about the difference between his father Soviet Union and American democracy on Friday vin. Men was fired along with his twin brother and another key impeachment witness ambassador to the EU. Gordon Simul let's discuss Senator Santorum let me start with you. Some Republican senators were urging the president not to fire John Lennon addition. Susan Collins of Maine said that doesn't favor any retaliation but we're clearly seeing some retaliation. We'll look the person has a right to have people around him that are. He's comfortable with and support deportment. Obviously these people have done things to lose the president's faith in them. The person has the right to do these things. Where should I shouldn't have done? That's a question I yes I certainly as a president wouldn't want people around me who don't support what I'm trying to accomplish. And it seems like tickly in the case of Vincent that's the case you know the level of meltdown by Democrats over this. If if Barack Obama had someone in his White House who is leaking to undermine him you and I both know the media would be defending the ouster of this person and before you say will break. Obama would've never done anything like this. Let let let's remember that. The Internal Revenue Service under Barack Obama investigated and targeted conservative tea party groups in the two thousand ten eleven and twelve and stalled getting their five. Oh One C. three status or their Five Oh one C.. Four status. Because They Lois Lerner and others within the IRS believed that they would undermine the president or they would attack the president they would go after the president you have an inspector general saying that the IRS Members of the IRS knowingly ignored the rules of the IRS to engage in partisan retaliation against these groups can you imagine if there was a leaker at the IRS. The media would be encouraging. Barack Obama. Fire that person. The problem boom here is the moral relativism of osage. You know eight. I continue to believe Donald Trump should have never had that phone call The way he had it with Ukraine's president it was bad. Had he not had addity. Would've gotten impeach you know in the same way just exercise a little bit of self control and not fire James Comey. He would've never had the Mueller investigation. Now that being said it's pretty clear that called me was a hack back in should have been fired You Know Hillary Clinton had fire James Comey though the media would have said it was deserved if she were president. And that's part of the problem here. There's a moral relativism. I'm on both sides. Where if our side does it it's virtuous at the other side does it? It's a sin as opposed to saying this is right and this is wrong and if it's right for one side is right for the other side and if it's wrong for once is wrong for the other side but we're not allowed to go there anymore. God help us. We're not allowed to go there. A now you've got the Democrats falling over verbatim selves to say that Donald Trump is a king. He's a dictator at. Its will never be able to remove. I gotta ask just as an aside. How many Democrats crats are going to get to November in? Say Well Guess. I'm not going to go vote. He's a dictator. They told me he's as a king. Now I can't get him out of the office so why bother to go. I mean I. I don't think it's going to be significant numbers but I do wonder to some some degree particularly with the Democratic Milton. Oh we will get to the Democrat. Meltdown that's happening right now over the field my goodness they are in absolute panic mood after the good week. The president had last tweet but no seriously how many people are going to decide that. Oh my goodness gracious This man's dictator now. We're never going to be able to remove off as just throw their hands up in get out of politics. It makes you wonder. Hey listen. I don't think it's going to be a significant number but when you have mainstream in stream media talking heads saying this man is a dictator now. There's nothing we can do. Some people are GONNA lose hope other people. Of course you're going to get violent a a little in Florida in Jacksonville Florida. A blonde haired Blue Eyed Neo Nazi type. Well it would be if he was doing this to Democrats but because he's doing it to Republicans. No no ran a van through a Republican voter registration to if this was just just just. Let's play hypotheticals. Hypothetically Stacey Abrams fair fight does a voter registration. Drive and a blonde blonde haired blue eyed dude in a van runs through the tent. where the doing the voter registration drive? What do you think the media reaction would be how? How many days of coverage would it get but it was a progressive activist who did it to Republicans lukens? So we're not getting a ton of media coverage are we know we're not and we're not because there is is a partisan indifference to these sorts of stories and that partisan difference comes from the fact that they are hypocritical and they give sympathy to the left and they ignore facts. That might embolden people on the right. There is a moral relativism visited both sides. I mean let's be honest. The let's let's flip this over on the other side. If Barack Obama had made a phone call to to Ukraine's president and said investigate Ivanka trump and donald trump. You who are listening right now nodding along with me would be beside yourself with rage and what the president impeached. That's just the reality of it. Each side believes its own side virtuous and the other side vein at fault. But that's not the situation we're dealing clean with right now we we can do all the what about scenarios we need to. That's not the situation we're dealing with right now. We're dealing with the situation of this president and I have said repeatedly he shouldn't should have done that phone call. I don't think it was impeachable but I do think it was wrong and I wouldn't think it was impeachable of Barack. Obama did it but I would continue to think it was wrong but just by virtue of saying it's wrong there will be rally the flag contenders for this president. Who will be outraged with me for saying saying that that it was wrong? He shouldn't have done it And in there will be democratic partisans outraged that I don't think it's impeachable but if the shoe were on the other foot and I said it was wrong. A lot of the Republicans upset with me. I was wrong for the president to do. It would be cheering me on. I said it was wrong for Obama to do it but but excoriating me for not impeachable. We're in an age of more relativism. And there's a lot of nonsense out there in the media of course is so biased in has no sense of history that in your savings. I am old enough to remember Barack Obama telling supporters to take guns tonight fights and the media was comfortable with his rhetoric. I am old old enough to remember. Joe Biden telling black voters that Mitt Romney would put them back in chains in the media. Turn a blind eye. I am old enough to remember. knbr Barack Obama telling Hispanic voters that Republicans were their enemies in the media. Said nothing. I am old enough to remember Barack Doc Obama lying and telling people what they like their doctor they could keep their doctor. And the media defended Him and assailed Sarah Palin for saying it was ally and even politic fact came out and said he was telling the truth and then had his eight with the lie of the year. oops my bad got it wrong. We made the mistake of believing him. The media gave him a pass. I am old enough to remember the Obama Administration Giving guns to Mexicans and fast and furious and getting an American border patrol agent killed. And I'm old enough to remember the Obama administrations. IRS investing in Harassing Tea Party groups. The media turned a blind eye. All of this they gave a pass to all of it and now suddenly they think that Donald Trump is uniquely Khloe. Bad uniquely terrible. His voters are uniquely violent in his rhetoric is uniquely violent because they were sleep for eight years is the only thing I can imagine. It does this so much of the anger and rage about Donald trump firing Alexandrovich Edmund. You and I both know darn well that. If Brock Obama had done that the the media would be given an investment. And that's why I carriage by I don't blame the president for wanting to reassign people he didn't fire him. They reassigned him out of the White House. And I don't blame them for doing so. It is clear that this administration uniquely if there's one unique thing about it has a bunch of holdovers from the Obama Administration careerists who are partisan to lean to the left who hate this president. And what undermining. And he has the right to clean the White House of these people and move them to other places uses and the fact that the media is upset about it is really the media is upset because their sources the leakers are being reassigned..
