Inflation Is Still Front and Center for Voters

"You know, I'm so glad you brought that up. Proclamations of political doom are always overstated all these premature and they always revert to the mean and the mean is that many activists on both sides of this issue will be energized, but inflation remains the continent in everybody's life. And the ability to provide for your family, the real one, not the theoretical one, the real family, is uppermost in people's mind. I'm just curious if you think there's going to be a withering away of the issue, which is what I think is going to happen. I think the states are going to go about their business and activists will activate and work in the states, but that it will actually yield calm, not more storms. This is the point that this board of draft opinion makes the point that justice Scalia along made as well by seizing. From the state legislatures, the people's elected representatives, this question of abortion in 1973. And then reaffirming it in 1992, the court did not settle this question as they wrote in Casey. They only supercharged the debate because they did not allow the natural process of liberation and compromise occurs on so many other questions in our society to occur on this question. Again, as it was in many states in 1973. So I do suspect that in many states, they will reach a compromise and they will have a set of laws that govern the practice and although there will always be some on either side to try to revisit those. Usually the case, the people's elected representatives liberates and reach compromise that satisfactory through the maximum number of people. And if not, then obviously, the democratic process of electing new governors and new state legislators and process will continue.

Will the FBI Investigate SCOTUS Draft Leak?

"Let me raise a very obscure point, but one which you've alluded to. If the chief justice requests the FBI, I can't imagine them doing this because we got separate branches here. The FBI would ordinarily investigate a leak on this magnitude, but the chief justice and his colleagues may decide, no, we'll leave it to the Marshalls, because it is, it's not automatically within the purview of the FBI to investigate this. Do you agree with me on that? No, I don't think it's automatically here. I'm not sure the Marshalls are equipped to conduct that kind of investigation or will be directly responsive to the chief justice. I'll leave it to his hands in the hands of the court as a whole to decide how they proceed in that investigation. But the investigation must occur and the person who leaked this draft must be held accountable.

How Should Republicans Respond to the SCOTUS Draft Decision?

"Years. Justice Alito brings up the question of impact of a bad decision on other areas of law. You just alluded to that. One of the reasons you overturn a bad precedent, even when it's 30 years old, it's case here, 50 years old is row, is because it's distorting the law in order to preserve it, which is what has happened on free speech, for example, demonstrations have to be so many yards away, things that are never accepted in any other category of law that abortion jurisprudence. So it's a persuasive opinion. What do you think Republicans? They're Republicans running today in Ohio, right? They're going to be asked this by a media that is very pro abortion rights. It's impossible to neither reality of the media. How do you counsel them to respond to questions about this today and in the coming weeks? A few I'm reminded of what our friend Larry orne says in response to claims that perhaps Shakespeare didn't write Shakespeare's plays. Or sonnets. Whoever wrote him is pretty darn smart. And while I, again, I don't want to speculate about the reasons for this leak or where the court is and it's deliberations or where this draft opinion is. Whoever wrote it is pretty darn smart. And they understand our constitution. And they understand, when I've always made that row is an anomaly in the court's jurisprudence. It was a right invented and a thin air contrary to hundreds of years of angular American legal practice.

Supreme Court Set to Overturn Roe v Wade According to Leaked Draft

"Want people to understand rational basis test is not 100% deference to whatever is state by legislative or initiative action does. And that city of cleburne comes to mind where the court acted and overturned a law on rational basis review that discriminated against the mentally and intellectually disabled. And so the court will strike down stupidity. That's what I've always told my law students is the court's not going to stand by and let stupid irrelevant actions take place. And I think that's going to be the rule here, but the hysteria this morning, David. I want to give you the last minute. Will you accept media interviews today and will you even talk to people about the jobs draft? I don't know. I mean, I haven't read it. We're more interested in the draft itself. Because what's happening is, rather than talking about the case itself, in other words, rather than talking about roe and Casey and where they came from and how they were just invented, there's no support in history and the text of the constitution. And oddly enough, there's been scholars on both sides of the aisle if you will, all sides of the aisle that have criticized roast since it came out and basically said it just created right out of whole cloth. So that's really the issue we want to be talking about. The leak and what's going to happen, are they going to change their minds, but really is this the right that was ever in the constitution in the first place?

"What say you? Well, I haven't read the opinion yet. I understand it's about a hundred pages. I haven't got to it yet this morning. But I think the lead is an inexcusable breach, I think the problem is is that it hurts the integrity of the court. So we'll wait and see the release of the opinion by the court and we'll continue to pray for overturning roe versus wade. I think that's the opinion obviously that's problematic. It has no grounding in the text of the constitutional grounding in history. It's been problematic since the beginning. So I'll be interested to see what the court actually does. Any fair observer and any fair reader of justice Alito will be persuaded. Because he just demolishes. It doesn't make the abortion illegal in the United States. It's simply returned to the states. And he also walks through the story, decisis. I've covered this for two hours, so I'm going to come back to it, but I also do not want short left the Boston to go on discovery. Did you have a role in this case, David courtman? We filed a brief in the case and followed it all along and it's been interesting because it kind of felt like a throwback a little bit where the equal access type cases of the 80s and 90s were around. So what's interesting that the court this kind of case is still brewing in that court took it? And would you explain the facts? I said last night, briefly, in many, many years of Boston having a practice of allowing private groups to fly a flag in front of the Boston city hall and to have a discussion instead of speeches. Only one group had been denied the opportunity to do that. Christian camp or camp Christian, I can't remember which it is. And that's so obviously a constitutional I'm surprised it made it to the Supreme Court David were you? I was because when you follow the case, it was a view of the establishment clause the temperature church and state that hasn't been around for decades. Right. And that is, well, gee, even though we opened this area in front of city hall and then the flags for whoever wants to come. Not only did they put a flag, but they have a little ceremony, so it's not just like someone puts their flag up and leaves, they have an event at the base of the flag. And so we let anybody in who wants to come, but then this camp constitution that's this Christian camp comes. I said, no, we're going to violate the establishment clause. That's such an antiquated view that you can't treat religious organizations or whether this group is the same as everybody else. And that was interesting about the case that they were still forwarding that antiquated view of what the establishment was. Yeah, David Corbin long ago and far away when I was doing pro Bono work for a church in San Bernardino that ran into an ignorant city council lawyer, who said the establishment clause prohibited the zoning that allowed the church to have baseball lights. Because it would be you run into this occasionally, but it has been 30 years that the court keeps saying 9 out either free speech or the free exercise clause. One or the other prevents cities and states from doing this, do you expect this will settle the matter? I don't know. And the reason is, is you would think it would have been settled before this. Even cases like coach Kennedy, where they're bringing up the establishment clause that endorsement and even though we know this is a private person speaking somehow it gets enveloped into what the government saying. So I think there are always those who don't want to accept what I think is the proper view of the establishment clause are going to continue to suppress religious freedom, really to speech, whatever their worldview or their agenda is. So I don't know if it's ever the end of it. Hopefully it provides a little more clarity. I wasn't a giant fan of the opinion because it could have made it a lot more clear than it was because it kind of waffled back and forth. So I think the opinion is being issued should give more clarity. So that lower courts and people know exactly what.

"Right, but you use the right analogy by them. When you said it's an earthquake, I've gone through many earthquakes. One where I had to gather up my three then small children and pray that the third one didn't come. The big bear quake. And I was in Orange County at the time. And I thought the house was going to fall down. It went on and on and on and on and it came back. So earthquakes, concentrate the mind like hanging as Samuel Johnson said, but then you're going to work. And you're picking up the rubble and a month later, no one's talking about northridge or big bear or the San Fernando or the one in San Francisco during the World Series. Earthquakes just, you know, we got to get on with living. And so I just don't think they can maintain momentum from this. Go ahead. Well, I think people will be talking about it because democratic candidates and activists will be talking about it. And so I think that's the difference between, I mean, the earthquake analogy, I think, is good in the sense of just how, just sort of earth shattering this whole decision is. But I think that it will be kept alive in the campaign context by Democrats who want to keep it alive. And obviously, a lot of concern to Republicans are going to defend this because this is what they wanted. They wanted it for a very, very long time. And justice Alito's opinion, by the way, is armor for them. He did effectively, I've been saying this for years, but it is an effective repudiation of roe. I mean, it ridicules roe. And then it ridicules Casey, and then it runs through the reasons for starting decisive not being applicable, which mirror those are the chief justices and citizens united concurrence. It is their whole clot defense. He robed everyone who needs to argue it. The question is you think any Republicans will figure it out because this is a little bit above the average legislators pay grade? Yeah, because listen, I don't think constitutional law is going to be a feature of these campaigns. The emotionalism of roe in the campaigns. It's certainly not certainly hasn't been a feature in democratic politics. I mean, the fact, all the facts that are in Alito's decision beginning with the simple fact that the right to abortion is simply not in the constitution. And that it's not going to outlaw abortion. It will send it back to the states. All of those are things that really are not going to be discussed so much as a woman's right to choose. The emotional response will be very, very vibrant and blue states, as it will be on the other side in red states, and it will just make red redder and blue bluer, but Byron York will talk about it week after week. We'll see who's right. I don't think it's going to matter much. Byron says, just wait and see. We will see..

"Morning, glory America, bonjour, high candidate who you're at live inside. It felt way that his shuttering still tremors coming out from the leak of a Supreme Court decision authored by justice Alito that overturns Rowan Casey a decision I expected. I did not expect a leak of it. I really didn't because that is a scar on the court. Joining me to discuss the implications of both the leak and the decision, Byron York, of the Washington examiner and, of course, you see him on Fox News. Byron, I went to bed. Can I get up at four 30 before this happens? So I had to absorb it at four 30 in the morning. You've had more time to think about it. I get it. What do you think? Well, I have been trying to think about it this morning. First of all, I turned on Hugh Hewitt to learn from him. But I think there's three really big issues with this. One, is the outrageousness of the leak itself. And you're absolutely right. I agree with everything you say. Actually, scotus blog tweeted last night. It is impossible to overstate the earthquake. This will cause inside the court in terms of the destruction of trust among the justices and staff. I think that's absolutely true. And scotus blog is the most non partisan objective observer of the court there is. Exactly. So that was not a partisan remark, I think it was just a statement of fact. So that is huge. And I agree, I agree, it's done to try to influence the ultimate decision. We'll see if that works. So it's a big, big thing. As big as this, the bigger thing is, of course, the substance of the decision. Which changes, I mean, ro has been law for 49 years, it's been controversial for almost all of that controversial to weak word to use for it. It's been back in to the Supreme Court over and over again. It will change people's lives. It will change relations between the states that will change all sorts of things. Even as important as that is, I think the third effect could be even more, which is the consequences for the long-term politics. Of our country. And the reason I think it's so important is if you've been listening to reaction this morning on the left, there is absolutely full scale anger. It's going to pour jet fuel on the already existing anger against the checks on the majority in our political system. And by that specifically, I mean, the Senate and the Electoral College and all of that cash legitimacy or illegitimacy on the Supreme Court. I don't know if you saw the photo from Madeleine Albright's funeral at the national cathedral last week. In the front row was Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Al Gore. And a lot of Democrats said these are the winners of the popular vote in 6 of the last 7 presidential elections going back to 1992. And of course, two of them, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore did not become president. And so you're going to see a lot of commentary to the effect that some of the justices who were on the Supreme Court are on the Supreme Court as a result of presidencies and presence who did not win the popular vote. And they have been confirmed by sentence that do not represent the majority of American voters because of the constitutional system giving each state two senators regardless of population. So there's already been a lot of democratic anger over the years at the Electoral College at the nature of the Senate. And thus, at the Supreme Court because of the Supreme Court comes out of those two things. And I think this is just going to just skyrocket after this.

How Long Can Ukraine Hold off the Russian Air Force?

"The Wall Street Journal story on the defense of the air that the Ukrainians mounted using a plaid quilt of machines and systems. Do you think they can hold off the Russian air force and maintain at least a fight in the skies senator? I have no doubt that they can hold off the Russian air force and the Russian army if we provide them with the weapons that they need, the administration typically has been behind the power curve on this behind Congress, even behind Europe. And that's not a good place to be. They continue to worry more about providing strategic up brands or improving Ukraine's position at the negotiating table. What we should be focused on is winning and victory in Ukraine. And that means Ukraine needs the weapons to fight their own war.

"Senator, let me ask you about the armed services budget. Because you're on armed services. There is an inflation number plugged in there that is risible. And so what are you going to do about it? They're not funding the military. They're cutting the military because they want to give more money away. Yeah, so Q just at the nominal level before you account for inflation. Remember, they're spending more money on basically every department of government but the military, which is the exact opposite of what we should do. You should always start with what most vital and most fundamental first. And for the federal government, that is the protection of our nation. We actually have a budget that match matches our strategy that is suited to our threats. Not a strategy that fits our budget. And then we can decide what we have remaining that we can spend on other priorities.

"Is the sound of the education, great white shark approaching the elections of 2022, and it's going to gobble up not just go to trick members, but Democrats everywhere because of stories like when I did last hour, San Diego high school, the largest one cutting all honors in AP classes. I'm joined by Byron York and the Washington examiner. We clued in Byron, who might not otherwise know what's going on in San Diego union high school, but we gave them a little head start. Byron, good morning, how are you? Good morning, Hugh doing well. I have just two questions. One, why did anyone settle in Virginia because it's allergy season? And I don't know how they survived. Because they knew it was going to have a great wine industry in a couple of hundred years. Okay, that's a bet against everything. I thought it was because they had to smoke. But there's just absolutely no way to get through a day here without watery eyes and throat. Number two, what do they thinking? Canceling API. After the COVID shutdown, after the CRT controversy, after all of this, how can even one principle? Much less other principles do what they're doing to higher Ed to the secondary education. Yeah, it's extraordinary. And with these midterms coming up, pollsters often ask this question, which party do you trust more to handle this issue, taxes or inflation or national defense or healthcare? And each party usually does pretty well on its own issues. The Republicans do well on taxes. They do well at national defense. They do well on border security. And Democrats do well on healthcare and education. And the Democratic Party in the last two years has thrown away the education issue, which if you saw in Virginia as you just mentioned, was a huge issue in the governor's race. And now, the story that you point out, which is this high school in San Diego, which is getting rid of advanced placement classes for equity reasons. There's a line in the union tribune story about it. Participation and success in honors and AP courses are key factors in college admissions. In other words, their key factors in what parents hope for their children. And now Democrats are getting rid of it. So in the bigger picture, you have Democrats by siding with teachers unions by keeping students out of school for so long with no reason during the pandemic. And now by doing things like this, you have Democrats actually throwing away one of their better issues. They were good on education because they spent money on education. Right. And they spent money on teachers. And when you hire a lot of teachers, some of them can stratify and teach AP Latin or they can teach AP calculus, or they can teach honors English. They can get kids ready for college. But what they're doing is they're giving up. And I don't, I have no idea why anyone would do this, Byron. Can you put yourself in the place of that principle? Why would they do this? Well, I mean, the party has obviously moved left over the years. Certainly since the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, it has associated itself with issues that don't have a widespread support. I think the majority support in the country. And as you know, a number of colleges just got rid of the SAT test over the past couple of years. And they did it allegedly for some reason connected with the pandemic. But some of them are probably not going to do it, bring it back. So one of the things that the left wing of the party has done is kind of fight a war against achievement against distinctions based on achievement. And here again is something. You're on to something here. Keep going. What I said before is that part parents want their students to achieve. They want them to do well. And again, from this story, the underrepresentation and this is some minority students in AP classes is a problem because enrollment in advanced courses is associated with a host of academic benefits, such as, better attendance, fewer suspensions and higher graduation rates. If people have an incentive to achieve things, they achieve things. So who has an incentive and I'm thinking out loud here? Who has an incentive to work against achievement based in D.C. of excellence? That's a good question because it's something that everybody pays rhetorical tribute to and if you listen, if you listen to the people who are doing this, that will probably tell you they're doing it to achieve true excellence. So these words are used in every in every sense. But who actually benefits from this? I think the ad. Byron, I can use nobody benefits. I'm going to use myself as an example. 12th grade AAP physics. Hugh Hewitt in the back row, getting a D, a mercy D, 'cause I didn't understand a thing. I still don't understand a thing. And we could be here all day, and you could bring me that guy who taught at Caltech the greatest teacher of fenman, Feynman, Richard finman, whatever his name is. You could bring him here and put him in the studio. I would never learn physics. So what do you do when you can't learn something? You screw around and when you screw around, what do you do? You destroy the class for those people are actually so inclined. I could have kept Bill Gates from doing Microsoft if I'd been in. You know, I would have been, you know, throwing things at him and tearing up his, you know, just giving him a hard time doing what high school kids do. And I just don't understand it. Now there's one group that I think is invested in anti excellent measures. And that's high school in college admissions officers. The people who can't do anything go into college admissions, and when they get into college admissions, they, they make war on people they don't like and they elevate people that they like. It's the worst job. If you tell me you're a college admissions officer, I don't want to talk to you. I really don't. I'm sorry if I hurt someone's feelings, but you know where I'm going.

"Morning glory America bonjour high cannon. I'm you good inside the bellway joined by Byron York of the Washington examiner he's also you see him on Fox News. Good morning, Byron. How are you? Good morning, Hugh doing well, thanks. Our mutual friend Joe concha. Ten hours ago, put out the Friday night ratings of cable. Now, I don't normally pay attention to the cable ratings, but I've started to appear on Brett bear special report. And I know you work over there. I've left NBC. And I'm curious the only CNN program no CNN program broke 307 100,000 viewers on Friday. None. Every hour of this show has more than 700,000 listeners Byron. I can not believe this. What has happened there? Well, yeah, it's interesting. Joe had retweeted a Twitter site that sends out a lot of the cable news ratings. And the ratings for Friday night were really not all that unusual. 9 out of the top ten programs were Fox News. Number 6 was the Rachel maddow show on MSNBC. Sometimes there are two MSNBC shows in the top ten, but that's a pretty accurate picture of what it looks like all the time. The highest rated, the highest rated CNN show was 27 Anderson Cooper's show. At 8 p.m., that's been the same for quite a long time, usually the highest. When Chris Cuomo was there the highest rated CNN show was maybe 24th. I've always wondered and I have to say, I haven't done any reporting. I haven't looked into this. But I've always wondered why CNN doesn't want to do better. I mean, Byron. Ratings are the measurement of your success.

Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes Resign From Fox News

"Know there's a conservative crack up going on inside the beltway as Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes have departed from Fox News. There's a story at the American spectator about addition by subtraction at Fox News with which I disagree. Molly Hemingway quotes from it approvingly. Molly is a good friend as his mark. Byron York works with both Jonah and Steven Jonah longtime friend of the show, Stephen a's used to be. He drops a nuclear bomb on my head a couple of years ago that I didn't see coming, but I don't know what that's all about. Byron York works with everybody and apparently amicably like I try to do as I quote tamale Lincoln's first inaugural. We are not enemies. We must not be enemies, but friends, Byron, what is going on? Well, good morning you. My official position in all of this is that I wish everyone well. Yeah, you and I pretty much adopt the same view on beltway, penda tree. Yeah, well, what can I say? You're a Fox News contributor. Do you have a conflict? I don't want to put you in a bad spot. No, I am a Fox News contributor. I have been since 2006. And I've been happy to be Fox News. So I think that that's my story right there. And by the way, I am an NBC News contributor though I've been exiled and they're about to breach my deal. I don't know why, but I've been exiled. So who knows what's going on inside of network executives trying to figure out their audiences? I think this all comes down to trying to find your audience and keep them happy. Well, I mean, there's always been this a lot of commentary about thoughts about having almost being like the old broadcast entertainment networks. In the sense that they had the news division and then they had entertainment programming. So people said, well, the prime time program on Fox is kind of like the entertainment programming and the special report and approximately Sunday in the whole daytime, really are all about the news division. I think that's unfair because a lot of news is made during prime time on Fox. But clearly it's opinion driven and clearly Steve and Jonah became increasingly uncomfortable with the prime time programming. So I am not sure what to say beyond

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

"Welcome back to the damn pop show. All eyes have been on the U. S election here for for weeks. Now the election is now. 10 days, I guess in the rear view mirror, and most people think it is all over, but the shouting Yesterday morning, President Trump did a phone call with the press, and he expressed confidence that he could still win the election and vowed to continue fighting. And what I'm going to refer to Here is Byron York's Daily Memo newsletter comes out every morning. If you don't get it, you really should. Byron's a great guy, and and it's got two good information every day. And so he's talking here about the Phone call that Trump did with reporters yesterday morning, and he walked through the situation in the in the states where that where there still is, is potentially some doubt. And he says we're gonna win. We're gonna win Wisconsin, he says. We're gonna win Arizona. It'll be down to 8000 votes. And if we do ah, an audit of millions of votes will find 8000 votes easily. Hey, says Georgia, we're gonna win. We're down to 17,000 votes and we have hand counting hand counting coming up in George. I'm not sure that's right. Body says If we get hand counting, we're gonna win. And the big ones, of course, are Michigan and Pennsylvania. And the fact is that Trump can't get enough electoral votes by turning around one state with litigation or with recount or whatever it may be. He's got turn around three. And that's really defying all all possible Odds. And with respect to Michigan and Pennsylvania. This is what he had to say in the in the phone call yesterday with reporters. He said. All these air two big states and he said in Michigan and Pennsylvania, he's pinning his strategy on pro testing the exclusion of his campaign's observers during critical periods of vote counting. This is a quote from Trump, he said. They wouldn't let our poll watchers and observers watch or observe. That's a big thing. They should throw those votes out that went through during those periods of time. And and I want to talk about that little bit because this is something I've written about on power line. I've studied the complaint and in Pennsylvania that the Trump campaign and two individuals filed there And Trump is absolutely right. And I think it's important that we make a basic distinction here we one question is, was their voter fraud? Were there irregularities on an industrial.

You're a busy man, Welcome to mornings on them all. Glad to have you Good morning, folks. Thanks for having me you know who else has been busy is the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Governmental Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance. They began a joint investigation of August of last year into the Bidens and particularly Hunter, Biden and his business is when she gets paid a lot of money to consult. Just consult. And they come out with this 87 page report. There are allegations of $3.5 million off being paid from one of Russia's most powerful oligarchs, allegations of money that linked to prostitution or human trafficking gift credit card's linked to China for and spending sprees for Hunter Biden, his brother, his brother's wife of over $100,000. There is so much in here. You hit the highlights for us? Well, you just did. And I listen. I think the press coverage of this has been pretty unfair. A lot of it has said Republicans investigate Hunter Biden and come up with nothing. They say that it created awkwardness in U. S foreign policy, but that's all they've got. And a lot of them. Don't even mention this $3.5 million, which I didn't know about till I saw the report yesterday morning, which is Ah, a former mayor of Moscow enriched his wife when he was the American Moscow so much she had a company and he gave her so much business that she became Russia's first female billionaire, and, um, the senator is Johnson and Grassley discovered that while Joe Biden was vice president, ah, this Russian billionaire transferred $3.5 million to 200. Biden's company. And it was it looks like it was for quote Consulting, which you know is the most catch all description in the world. He consulted for $3.5 million, and that has been absolutely left out of most of the coverage. I thought it was the most interesting new thing in this in this report, But the other thing is also We know now to to Obama officials who who questioned the vice president or vice president since office, or the vice president Joe Biden directly about his son's activities, his son's business activities in Ukraine and child and both of which were ignored. Yeah, but of course, then we get a New York Times headline like quote Republican inquiry finds no evidence of wrongdoing by Biden. As you know. Look for that $3.5 million in that story. It's not there. Yes, And in fact, Where were these stories from? The New York Times When all of the Trump Russia, collusion stories were running like no evidence of wrongdoing by Trump. I'd love to read that story because that's not the coverage we got. We got like on constant onslaught. Byron York of There's some there there. Once we find it, we'll share it with you. Yeah, Look, there's been a huge double standard in press coverage is just no doubt about it. But But the fact is and and the other thing is. There've been a lot of attacks on Senator Johnson and Senator Grassley, uh, for being willing dupes for Russian disinformation that is, they had Russian intelligence people who were feeding them information about Hunter Biden and Joe Biden. So that they would go on to smear Joe Biden with that information. In other words, that that the Senate investigation run by the chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, Senator Johnson and the chairman of the Finance Committee, Senator Grassley would be the product of Russian disinformation. They make a big deal in this report of showing the sources. Of all of their information, and the sources are all U. S. Government documents, banking documents the testimony of U. S government, former officials It is a completely American affair. It is a matter of fact, The disinformation may have been on the other side in which ah, Russian was telling. Democrats that he had been feeding information to Ron Johnson and they they then went out and claimed that Johnson was the Duke of Russian disinformation. But the source look at the sourcing on this report. It is all American all official it is not disinformation. I mean, and it's It's just crazy. The millions and millions of millions of dollars that were just transferred into several companies that of which Hunter Biden was apart. And also John Kerry, son. Isn't you see his name coming up in one of these? Well, so what happens now? We've got this report. They they do. Make a point to say that. You know, there were no charges brought or anything along those lines. Does it just end there? Well, obviously, the Senate Senate committees don't bring criminal charges against anybody and look, it's possible that some of the stuff was not criminal. It's just something that I think in a normal political atmosphere journalist would be interested in, UM, vice president is the administration's point man on Ukraine..

N. meanwhile at her so that doesn't give anybody in any new information you know I think what we're seeing now you know with the president's decision to extend the social distancing and all that policy I think we're seeing is a clear move of public opinion in the direction of favoring restrictions on their own lifestyle until the disease is under control because I think we talked about this for a for a while the greater fear of the disease the greater the support for some government restrictions on it and so when the president said he wanted to get back to work that only works if you're the disease has not decreased to a level that people are except the idea of restarting their activities and we're not there yet you know Byron I think we're in a a time that is V. and eighty before emergency after emergency no I've got no vulnerability on this because I was early to the bell in January and I am crazy about pandemics and I broadcast about it every single day beginning on January twenty first and I haven't stopped talking about it Tom cotton has no vulnerability here but everybody else wants to look back and try and find some reason to blame the president for this virus I think that is irresponsible I think it's really wildly crazy to criticise private sector people like Mike Lindell I have to agree to sponsor my showed a friend of mine but what is wrong with the beltway media and people dunking on Michael in dal who's given half of its production capability to making masks but but he's also a man of faith in a man in recovery I don't think I don't think the Washington press corps understands how they appear to people no they they mock Lindahl's appearance at the news conference yesterday at the briefing yesterday they mocked the notion of playing any role in the because they associate them with fox news I think that's pretty pretty clear and Hey we're in a situation where one I think one of the good things the president does is almost every briefing has business leaders leaders of big companies that are doing this or doing that who aided in the effort they're turning over this technology to more testing or more protective equipment or ventilators or or whatever is necessary and that the president is showcasing them and that's a good thing so I I I totally agree with you on that one now on a Sunday I'm sure for fox news you are doing what I did for meet the press on Sunday were all remote we're all distance were all in funny little studios that have been completely sanitized it's awkward but I brought up a tractor having a kick and I referenced Eric Rudolph from the movie chariots of fire because the great they're great scene in that movie where a falls down but he uses this great kick to catch up past and win the race I think America the helluva kick I think freedom got a helluva kick and this private industry effort is demonstrating that in an effort by the president this is my question do you think the president is trying to use cheerleading techniques to encourage the country argued is absolutely gone I think it is very clear and you know and Dr Taqi said that early that our doctor thought your job was to present the numbers and the president's job was to try to give some people hope in the president's tried various things to do that on the on the idea of a kick I think that that's an interesting idea I think maybe another way to look at it is we've historically been slow to respond to big problems but you know what's the what's the machine gets up and running it's pretty effective in pretty big so I think we may be more in that situation now it was Steven M. rose in his book citizen soldiers interviews a German at fifty years after the war he said when the Americans came into World War one I knew I lost my my father knew we lost when they came into World War two I knew we lost you can't beat the Americans and I believe what we see right now are real numbers real data real breakthroughs whereas in China honest to goodness I can't believe media outlets the trust these people they lied about everything Byron I think you have to put it in if you're just a straight news reporting but the number of cases around the world I think you have to always always include a disclaimer about China that you can't trust any other numbers and we you know we know it started there and I think one of the things that was we just have the reporting about Tom cotton's role and I think of the story in politico basically the eve of the Senate trial with impeachment when the whole world is looking at impeachment Tom cotton is looking at these reports out of China and he sees it as he sees the government minimizing setting there's no problem here on one hand and on the other hand taking increasingly restricted inter Korean measures to try to isolate the virus and in lieu Hanh and he he knows that those two things don't match up odd that the government is lying and and cotton and is urging the president to restrict travel from China which you present doesn't January thirty first during the trial actually so some people were sitting there and the discrepancy between what the Chinese government thank you and what they're actually doing and give the story away at center cut was on this show signing that bell I think in January certainly in the first week in February but I think in January because it was so obvious also admits that readers others on the show sounding that alarm but at the same time that the president listen to them and put the Chinese travel restrictions then was he not criticized widely for doing so yes he was actually Joe Biden said on the very day January thirty first other restrictions went into place Biden was campaigning in Iowa and said this is a long time after the president's hysterical xenophobia so yes there was a certain amount of criticism they're given actually some some fake tweet there was a fake tweet made up about senator Schumer didn't say we used to say there's no doubt the president actually was criticized when he takes that effort so if I can do the bare bones the first of the bell is senator cotton I think my show was the first show that is nationally broadcast in which he found that alarm that people are taking it seriously the president respond on the thirty first he received criticism for responding and then the CDC has internal technical issues and regulatory snafus that have nothing to do with political leadership on the testing which hold us back I think and then after that I just don't think anything else matters and we ought not to be looking back have I missed a crucial element Byron York I don't think so this is what we talk about when you see the big lumbering American government being slow to start the other thing I think is public opinion about this which is what you might call the Tom Hanks example early reporting stress that for most people actually getting the disease was no big deal and that it was really rather confined the people who are quite elderly who have serious health.

"Welcome on our gas line the one and only Byron York Hey Byron great having you on the show have you been sure Hey Mike I'm doing well thanks very much are you are you wearing a mask yet are you panic yet about coronavirus actually I'm in a full body hazmat suit as we speak I don't blame you I don't blame me I'm gonna I'm gonna try for how to get the microphone up under my my helmet so that about my big one of those big like like the undersea diving thing at all we're one of those what what you saw Matt Gaetz yesterday he wore one of big gas mask on the floor of the house was not all about what this is this is serious and obviously it poses a real threat especially to elderly Americans and those with underlying health conditions all owners really serious and I think what the government is doing is is reasonable and serious I I do think and this was listed as predictable as the sun coming out that that it has been politicized a good bet and that trump has been criticized a lot per saying think they're entirely reasonable right now when he questioned when he questioned the W. H. O. death rate and said that he thinks it's actually a good bit lower I mean he's basically saying what the experts have told him so anyway that the politicization is is unfortunate I think the government's doing going doing the right things but we do live in a world in which people get on airplanes and travel from China Italy to the United States and you know thanks for that things will spread and that under those conditions twenty seven hundred new Yorkers are right now shelf quarantine because they've been to one of those hot spots it's and and yes people are pointed out to me the shelves are empty they don't you can not find Disney wipes and handi wipes and you know pure rail and hand sanitizers they're gone I mean they're sold out you know that kind of stuff and people are are are also you know buying you know also to to the second time they need to do that for quite awhile and you know if you can make fun of some of the stuff that but a lot of this will actually limit the spread or help limit the spread of people are washing their hands like crazy and if they're trying to avoid touching her face if they're trying to do the things that will help it didn't the the idea of of keeping the virus literally outside the United States borders was was impossible but just because it's impossible doesn't mean you can't make it better make the situation better and doing all that stuff will help so it's a good thing nothing wrong with being proactive Byron that's for sure I got you know I'm at a stage with Joe Biden and I keep saying to people what is this expectation that did that that it's all over that we know Biden is going to be the nominee we'll see what happens in Michigan I want to get your take on what you think will happen Tuesday Michigan between Biden and Bernie but I got to play this montage I mean I I I I I don't like to pile on and I'm not trying to make fun of another human being but you do I I think it's time that we can have a Frank in an open exchange of dialogue about his mental acuity here's cut seventeen a little montage he was Barack Obama's vice president for eight years and the poor fellow seems to have a hard time remembering his name listen to this we got the speed the NRA and my state is a big gun owners take because honey finally got to speak twice I got a solo albums bands for ten years might be reauthorized because the hanging chads in Florida the last president said no I'm not going to reauthorize.

"Byron York with real insightful commentary over the Washington examiner today Democrats once crowed about having the most diverse field in presidential history and that was likely true there were African Americans women a gay guy white man elderly white men white white men now is Byron points out its down to Joe Biden Bernie Sanders apparently the parties rush to Joe Biden was so swift it almost invites rethinking in the days to come Byron York asks will there be a Biden hang over yes he was the front runner from the moment he declared Democrat voters are familiar with his name but because of the peculiar circumstances of twenty nineteen Joe Biden has not been subjected to the withering extended scrutiny that being a presidential front runner can bring this sense of a Biden blowout was enhanced by the fact that most of his wins took place in the eastern and central time zones of super Tuesday when the polls closed first Sanders won his home state of Vermont he won Colorado he won you talk if you want Texas and California it would have been a pretty even match up but Biden on the strength of those late deciders took more delegates in Texas it appears Sanders headed to victory looks like California when will keep him in the delegate race he fell short but what should stake now is this resolution of a deep divide within the Democratic Party between Bernie Sanders young revolutionary minded constituency now strengthened by significant numbers of Hispanics and Joe Biden's older more cautious electorate the outcome might be decided less he writes on the substance of issues then on the temperament and stamina of two men who were either elected would turn eighty shortly after entering the White House many Democrats Byron York Byron York writes especially those who were proud of their candidates diversity I wondering how they got here thank god here this is what you're left with Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders and I want to yeah I mean the trump younger than both up and certainly has a lot more stamina and and and you know energy and smarts certainly street smarts the Joe Biden we're in a really weird place sharply very strange place and the Democrats are just flailing about there really panicking on so many levels I mean you've got Chuck Schumer with his unhinged comments about Supreme Court justices Gorsuch and Cavanaugh this week you got just crazy talk from crazy radical Democrats receded to leap I'm going to be very careful in my commentary about her remarks listen to congresswoman Rasheeda to leave this week and what she said about abortion and sex cut three from Great Britain.

"As a Byron York sounds off on the bizarre Bolton statement that came out yesterday he says neither bill nor Mulvaney Mick Mulvaney the White House chief of staff testified before the house impeachment proceedings both in the not even receive a subpoena well they need to find one of the direction of the White House bones former deputy Charles Cooperman was subpoenaed and ask the court to decide whether he be required to testify at that point the Democrats withdrew their subpoena a judge later declared the entire matter moot in the end to democratic leaders would characterize boat moving in others is critical witnesses did not lift as much as a finger to compel the testimony close insurer held strategy sessions after the house passed impeachment articles Schumer then demanded the witnesses the house didn't even try to compelled to testify absolutely must testify before the Senate so the question is this if there is a problem requiring judicial resolution in the house when there also be a problem in the Senate six testimony the answers as Byron York is yes but possibly in different ways first it seems extremely unlikely a court would rule that the president's aides have a blanket immunity that prevent them from even appearing before the Senate but at the same time it seems likely that some or perhaps all of the conversations between Bolton and the president or Mulvaney in the president would be covered by executive privilege their cases in the past most notably a matter involving George W. bush White House counsel Harriet Meyerson chief of staff Josh Bolten that covered similar issues that case ended in a way that was inconclusive for Congress the house held layers involved in in contempt a judge ruled they had to appear for testimony but the ruling didn't do anything to stop them from appearing in the refusing to answer questions based on executive privilege which presumably what we could do the question is what happens in a Senate impeachment trial it's unclear yes some people have been suggesting that Chief Justice Roberts might weigh in remember impeachment travel Chief Justice of the Supreme Court oversees the procedure however is it likely that Roberts is going to step in and mandate testimony from Bolton unlikely unlikely in the president Bill Clinton trial in nineteen ninety nines is Byron York then she justice William Rehnquist wrote I did nothing in particular and I did it very well Roberts probably won't do much more but he will be there even if he's just a rubber stamp another way of saying this is and that is that he will give you a permitir of the judicial branch instead of actions he's going to presumably have to sound off sometime on some of this the Senate with Chief Justice presiding voted to issue a subpoena to both moving or anyone else to the recipient of this unit challenged in court how exactly would that work so the the bottom line here says Byron York is that in all likelihood what will happen is that button or Mulvaney get subpoenaed and then all of these folks testify but they don't actually violate executive privilege if executive privilege covers anything's Byron York is a president's deliberations with his chief of staff and national security adviser on the issue of foreign policy the privileges the president's Appleton's on all they need for anyone's or anyone else's and both the statement doesn't actually over we say that he's gonna violate executive privilege now with all of that said are there enough cracks in the Republican seen here in the in the Republican caucus here to mandate testimony from Bolton again unlikely unlikely because those cracks are indeed small even choosing counts as she's open to seeking testimony but openness seeking testimony in mandating the testimony be sought are not quite the same thing over at law and crime dot com lawyers have been debating exactly what happens now they're also a bunch of lawyers who have been signing open letters to the U. S. Senate criticizing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his failure to do impartial trial but the fact is that this thing is not impartial to political process will know is a political process in fact the lawyers are sounding off on it makes very little difference at all obviously yeah that is where things currently stand they are in flux it is unclear at this point as to what exactly happens it from here in just a moment we're gonna be having a lieutenant colonel surges at St Gary running for the ninth congressional district seat in Illinois also has tremendous experience for the run to stop by talk about so the money's going first good news for you did you know that you can become a daily wear inside or you just head on over to daily wear a calm and for just ten Bucks a month OR FOR six dollars more you can get all access member that includes an awesome ask me anything style discussion feature we can log in and talk to me are other hosts are writers even special guests during live online chats and everywhere membership includes not only all three hours of the show but you can ask me questions through the mail that you much alive recorded episodes the end of claiming showed Michael most of them out while showing more plus if you join insider plus or the all access here you get the exclusive leftist you're somebody can bring those left his tears.

Probably all overseeing ended MSNBC will the answers very simple because the behind closed doors stuff as Byron York says an excellent Washington Examiner piece. It's in my show notes dot com. Subscribe the Email this launch right to you. The stuff Cohen has to say could potentially be scope attourney for Donald Trump on the Russia stuff. So just to be crystal clear on this. Yes. Yeah. And I'm gonna explain why. Because I'm not gonna leave you hanging here, folks. Remember that old joke? How do you? Keep an idiot suspense. I don't know. How like that's the joke. I won't leave you hanging. This colwin the whole purpose. Follow me, you the whole purpose for this entire special counsel investigation. How it came to arresting Cohen of vis-a-vis the special counsel. And then southern district of New York was this whole assertion that Trump colluded with the Russians that whole idea that he colluded with the Russias to steal the election was based on a dossier of which Michael Cohen is a central figure in player in that dossier. He is mentioned twenty four times two dozen times in the dossier. So I hope you're picking up when I'm putting down here reason Elijah Cummings, and these other guys are putting that stuff behind closed doors is because if Michael Cohen goes under oath, again, it a closed door testimony and entirely the the dossier cramps all over the dossier and says this thing is complete garbage..
