Steve Deace: The Number One Driver of COVID Surges in the World Is Vitamin D Deficiency

"That's exactly right Nobody is lobbying on Capitol Hill on behalf of vitamin D seasonality If your name's Matthew McConaughey or Jennifer Garner and you get an audience with Anthony Fauci as a big Hollywood star and you ask him about vitamin E he tells them the truth and even admit hey I take 8000 IUs of vitamin D a day Well you know last year when everybody was locked down instead of sending him checks that just crushed our inflation rate why do we send everybody at vitamin D pack Because the number one the number one driver of COVID surges in the world is vitamin D deficiency The number one driver That's because that's what is connected with the seasonality here But we would do things like this if it was about healthcare And it's not And the mask mandates were to condition us for vaccine mandates The vaccine mandates are to condition us to hand over our bodily autonomy because once we've handed over our bodily economy we are essentially now handed over That's what this is about This is about a mass acquisition of power and control We are seeing hospitals now that are losing lawsuits about Ivermectin who are then still after the patient they're going to chase last weekend where a guy got Ivermectin and walked out of the hospital A few days later they are still appealing it How dare he survive They're still appealing He's not setting a president that they have to do this There was a case in Wisconsin where the family said we'll bring in our own doctor You don't even have to put your hands on it and the hospital still said we won't let you do that even if you bring your own doctor in and then the guy died Whatever This is insane We're in control as I

Speaker Newt Gingrich Describes the Power of 'Cheerful Resistance'

"Speaker Newt Gingrich welcome to America first one on one. Well, thank you very much and with that kind of an overwhelming introduction. How could I do anything with be happy to be with you? Well, we don't even need we shouldn't need to introduce you. I have this short bio that's on the back of your new book beyond Biden. I'll just mention one thing author of 41 books that enough said right there. I heard you speak just a few days ago at the museum of the Bible here in Washington, D.C. an amazing institution, where some great people from Liberty University and elsewhere, Doug the groot and the former Republican congressman Dave brat had an idea for a new contract with America like the one you penned this time for the business interests that are so stymied by this new administration. And let's start with what you said during that invigorating speech. You talked about the need for a positive attitude. The cheery attitude taught us about how the concept of the happy warrior. So embodied by Ronald Reagan is all the more important now in a post COVID age and with the trillions of dollars we see being wasted on Capitol Hill. I think one of my favorite terms is cheerful persistence. I think anything big at thanks persistence, but if you're cheerful, you are dramatically more likely to have people helping you get there. And I think that the objective fact is that 330 million free people, each endowed by their creator with the right to pursue happiness creates such momentum of creativity and excitement and enthusiasm and energy that despite the best efforts of the totalitarians on the left and the big government socialists and the woke radicals that in the end of free people went

That's why we're here every single day for three hours as well as our newsmax show on Sundays. Cash. I'm going to run by you. The reaction I got just a few days ago from Joe di Genoa, a lot of us have lost hope with John Durham. They say, yeah, yeah, yeah, it's two years later. I get that COVID slowed him down. But talk to Joe, who's a former special counsel himself, former U.S. Washington attorney, U.S. attorney for D.C.. He said these indictments, the level of detail in these indictments, especially the most recent one of danchenko, speak to a very serious individual who's going to get to the bottom of it. You've been there. You uncovered the Russia hoax for the house. What's your reaction to the recent developments on Capitol Hill? Yeah, look I think that John Durham is spot on track. As a former federal prosecutor, too, who brought these types of large scale fraud conspiracy cases, I spent three four 5 years sometimes working up a case in John Durham is working on the biggest scandal in the United States presidential history. And in two years, he's got three indictments. And the other thing about these indictments, he's connected the DNC to the corruption at the FBI to the corruption of their lawyers to now directly corrupting or expose enough nature of Christopher steel in the source. And normally these indictments are about two, three, four, 5 pages long. 40 page indictment. Yeah. Issues on the latest go round because John Durham is speaking to the public. It's the only way he's legally allowed to do so. And he's highlighting to take Sullivan's of the world that Charlie Dolan of the world. All these corrupt actors that fusion GPS and Christopher Steele and mccabe abstract and page. It's all coming to life. So I think he's on the right path.

Merrick Garland Has NO Substantiated Evidence of Parental Threats to School Boards

"Truer words were never spoken. When Tucker Carlson last night said that they are not serious people, but they are ideologues. And that was on display yesterday with the attorney general of the United States being grilled by Republicans over this directive that the Justice Department investigate parents who dare stand up for their kids at school board meetings. They're hiding under the pretense of well it's violence. It's the threat of violence. And yesterday, while Merrick Garland was testifying on Capitol Hill, the question was asked, what reports do you have what substantiated official police reports do you have of actual threats of violence? Now, to Tucker's point, which is a good one. Merrick Garland is an ideologue. If he's an attorney general, which is the top law enforcement official in the country, he'd say, well, we have 11 police reports from Virginia of threats of physical violence. We have 17 reports from the FBI. You know, there would be substantiation. He wouldn't say I saw it on MSNBC. You know, he wouldn't say I read about it at HuffPost. You know, that wouldn't be much of an answer, right? Yet that was literally his answer.

I think that if we do let this go under the auspices of hey. Let's be forward focused. Let's focus on the biden administration. Give him a true one hundred hundred days office. Let's not focus on the first hundred days looking back the past administration. I think we do a disservice to our country. I do think that there is a. I do think that there is a reason to wait for any trial for a little while because it is important from illegal Functioning government reason to allow the senate to confirm nominees got to have people in charge of agencies. And so perhaps. I don't necessarily understand the entire impeachment process. I would be fine with if it worked this way. The president being impeached rier to leaving office if he won't leave office if you're not resigned being impeach prior to leaving office and then letting you have the hundred days and then having the trial just like everybody else. Hey you're indicted. You can sit in jail for like ninety days and then you're gonna have your trial because we finally got your jurors and all this. He's not going to sit and try sit in jail ninety days without charges because he's white but what i'm saying. Is there still a time between charges are brought and when when the trial happens right now i would be fine with that happening. What i am not fine with is trump being able to do what anyone anyone be like if biden did this if biden incited a riot. And i've told people this. Oh you know you're you're so just snow against trump. you're just gonna say when i'm you're not gonna say anything like no damn off the train off the train. If biden sends his forces capital to try.

"You know too little too often right. I heard you mention the would d platforming. Can you tell us what that means. Yeah sure i mean. I don't have the very Like an academic. I'm standing of it. The my understanding of it as a person is about. It's a sort of like Action you can take against like people whose views a harmful and necessarily You know and it should be should be done when they're definitely going to be violence Yes so essentially sort of like you know access to a platform so that could be like i'm Like say i was a regular host on your show If i suddenly tend to not so you keeping your show Be meeting performed so That also can apply to Twitter and facebook They by let's take some come that form a and i guess pro. Trump supporters are saying that d platforming trump is like an infringement on their freedom of speech. And it's a form of censorship. Would you say I think censorship really applies to I mean as far as like the like. I mean i'm not a constitutional lawyer but as far as i understand it. The like the context. Censorship applies to government censorship. In the us and it it doesn't apply to companies Choosing how You know how platforms And you saw tun status. I think all this is ridiculous. 'cause i don't think we should See so much of our al freedoms to corporations or governments necessarily but You know like the thing is that They like these. These companies are entitled and legally on legally entitled suicide economies that for them It's not what the first amendment's about It's not it's not it's got nothing to do with You know legal rights. Americans have but The real thing that they are. It's it's just a it's just something that they scream about to try to get some purchase. In my opinion it should be or really because The the real thing that them out about it they they don't have They're being told that they can't do their nazi stuff out in the open anymore and they're also losing an effective tool that Also listening and effective tool which know help them organize and helps them playing things that will like you know like physical actions which that will get them what they want. And as far as i'm concerned like i the the argument is and we should Just recognize that it's It's disingenuous in an attack for what is not when is that. They say that they're doing which is protecting free speech. And because it's so easy to dunk on these people for being Credits right because you like. Oh this isn't free speech. Is it like you know like it's so easy to do but i. I think that's not really necessary. Because then you get bogged down into some this This discourse which is not really what it's What they're actually trying to say if you could go back a bit earlier when you were talking about michael mccomb cormac and him kind of comparing black lives matter to what happened at the capitol hill. I'm there were politicians who came out and we're like no cormac saying Inflammatory it's not like it's not this is on ustralian is an shelly and and can you also see something like what happened in the us. Happening here i'm like i don't think It's like strategy. Seems to be a very slow moving political place. Like i don't think i'm i feel like if we were coming to that sort of like Like open political violence. I think something probably would give before that because like i mean even Mr neoliberalism scott morrison like a job seeker before like letting us little stop know must killed in to do so but like you know you get it So i typically think You know political violences is less likely In the same way that we're seeing in the us But that is not to say that like it isn't australia is like decided that it's on astrology and be like You know black people's lives. Timeout is like totally false because It's a very nicely so this rally we will we were born on. This country was born out of like dispossession genocide You know like the absolute disregard for black bodies in this country black lives and to say it's a strategy is wrong It's against that. What else stated values is multiculturalism accepting everyone but if you look poss- what people say and like how people actually acted It's it's hard to think about. This country actually is accepting does want to sort of be a successful pluralist You know like ethnically clearly this country because it's not really you know it's still We still have like by people You know black. Be la k. I'm digits people being killed by police in disproportionate numbers the showing additional disproportionate numbers and You know all the closing. The gap targets Not really closing It it's hard to say that like that's not what australia is because it is what we like. We your country but You know it's just a it's easy you know. It's what they really trying to say. I guess like it's not what it it wants to be. No one none of us to be like that Except for you know obviously benefit from it but It's just Yeah i think it's a stupid thing to say understand why they Absolutely and no one ever wants to see themselves as like a racist nation wakes up and goes oh where racist country on like the kennedy. What numbers as well which is really really powerful austrailia So you read this article. That i was having a read of in the junky. It's called the westwood liquor. Neil liberalism and white supremacy and. It's destroying us so Just like at the start of your article. Just want to quote a line that you say that i feel like i'd love you to expand on so you say the insurrectionists didn't wake up on january six and simply decide to walk in the seat of power of the republic i'm where does neoliberalism fit in what we saw last week or show complicated question but I'll try to be six distinct possible but Anyway i'm like. I think you can join a very clear line from the like from the alien nation and the The deteriorating or stagnating conditions of like you know the average person in Just like every country in the west and the the racist like that was saying against minorities like these like over the past fifty years coming into sort of like you know Engaged on this This This project sort of like saying okay. So what we're going to do is we're going to get get our hands out of all these services to provide and the private companies do it And you know sort of in doing this. Like i like outcomes have not necessarily going up apart from you. Know like the wealth of shareholders and executives. And all that sort of thing so you sort of watching like the costs who like really rule loss get better and better but like with stack nettie like how you know for someone like me.

"Was is the poet. Repertoire and sabra. South proclaimed thug His words not mine at two park with his timeless track changes so on the fern We have jim mailer. So i reached that to jayme not too long ago and i was like. Hey i know you saw what happened on capitol hill and i have questioned speakers. How on earth did a group of rioters armed to the hilt enter and take over. One of basically the center of america's democracy and james said. yes. I'm going to answer that and we have gym on the phone. Want them to the s four blues. Jim thank you. Yeah you ought to be on a while. i'm like. I'm so glad you're on here. 'cause i see you on twitter. You've got little cute twitter moment happening which we love good. I'm very glad you helped me. Yeah posting my way into a job with the national cost of basically what look. It's a good place to start so So last week we saw something unprecedented happen. And that is the riot on capitol hill building. Can you tell us what happened. National so essentially In response to Verification of the electoral college votes in the capitol building. By like the us government. I'm comfortable what china does it exactly but in response to verifying the win joe biden. I'm always trump supporters actually Sort of like much breaking as they were allowed in by the police on capitol hill They sort of like got up to the capital's smashed windows and like sort of unfiltered around through the building taking throws them but butters and and in some cases. It looks like I'm not sure if this is being totally confirmed yet but There's a bit of evidence pointing towards the fact that they may have been trying to Kidnap cin Word like some democratic members of congress or the senate Like one one woman in particular that have been targeting would have been not nancy pelosi and also i always see Alexandria ocasio cortez Yeah so and and that's also been foreshadowed by the fact that Like some republican like. It's helped be confirmed. By the fact that the republican a members of congress in the senate or whatever. We're also giving tools to some of these fans the day before and of course there's also There's also some videos trump supporters in the days leading up to the verification of the senate of the The electoral college votes. That's Sort of saying we need to go inside the capitol building and so on the capital so yeah lots of stuff that have led to them getting inside and sort of smashing up the place in places stealing things and now you know posing for photos So yes what happened. Yeah and You sort of austin In the like in my intro like you know why you think it happened why it happened then like because those people are what right like they they. If they'd been black lives matter protesters who rightfully have a reason to distrust the government. you know. want some action done on their issues which is like not being monitored by Or you know just like you know. Random picks with gone so they pretty much like like you know they would have been shot in the street before they even reached the building but like these people were allowed in and and that we know that that was the case as well like that they were allowed in some of the people in the mall were actually place and retired army and the police went treating them as like no like vomit insurgents but like You know sort of like Like disobedient children and as you mentioned the if this had been like black protestors rioters they wouldn't have gotten as far as The white nationalist did which is interesting because People would have died casualties. One hundred percent. I mean like people to die but they were not I think one woman one woman got shot by police essentially. But like i mean like that's like the police would have shot You know anyone else You know like On the steps of the capitol building not learn inside or anything like that and also Another thing as well as like a police officer actually died And it's no any the You know the sort of like a We've seen about like black lives matter. Protesters burning cop shop or anything like got so and and that's actually what people have been saying. They've been comparing it to the black lives matter rally. Do you think that's like a fair comparison In insofar as you want to be like this is how police actually trade people that they see the threat then yes. I think it's a comparison but not when people like my cormac our is he still acting as the deputies eight thousand nine hundred his last day. I think i'm sorry. Shock on holidays please Like you know. He was trying to make the comparison to de-legitimize black lives matter protest because Even spot of the fact that he and You know he's like you know not potty members they probably collision but you know like everyone in government out refusing industry refusing to condemn the capitol hill riots. Maybe not everyone but most of all the ones that Refusing to do so And you know because whatever reason. I see You know that is legitimate. Or like they understand that it's illegitimate because they're trying to make black lives matter seem more More illegitimate by joining the compassion between the two but they weren't actually say that they think that the capitol hill writes that which in my Swear i'll probably. I'm sorry but but in my My like you know sort of Like summation of it is just completely like it's bonkers. Because they like if you look at their actions they like by refusing to condemn this. They wanna you know. Make themselves seem like i'm To like trump supporters. Australia like wear on your side to make It seemed like the trump that wear on your side or just sort of indicate that hey we actually think that this is a fine thing to do if you want to hang onto little costs so yeah right and In preparation for this interview. I was looking at Articles about big tech and so on one platform that i keep reading about policy. Can you tell us what color is sure. Sofala was Essentially I'm not sure it's the genesis. But i'm it's a along the lines of like Right wing people were sick of being Other platforms or You know Sort of like hounded off platforms like twitter and facebook. Actually facebook seems like it's almost entirely seated to the racist boom is at this point but anyway And yes so they. They wanted to like make price that was dazzling. Wouldn't have to worry about being sensitive to saint not stock so What's happening with paula. Was that it was sort of identified as one of the places where these groups organizing and because because of that The app store on Apple also google. I decided that i would no longer You know like host the apple sort of the pa and also amazon web services who Like this very like baseline understanding of it. But like you know you need to say this to host your your website iraq or whatever brought so like because of that they amazon was like well We're not gonna take your money and Like sort of like kicked them off from their service for a little while. But i think it's back now the websites back with the app song because they they require. I mean. you can't put an app on the app store. I shouldn't tell people about You but like it's sort of like a a family significant drawbridge particularly on apple. Think on apple. It's actually very hard to get a an apple you'll find without a Without the app store yeah So like they've sort of effectively depop on paula in response to You know sort of identifying that.

"Have you seen enough yet. Hey welcome to radicalize me. And the fall of the american empire. I wanted to put something out and address the the elephant in the room pun. Intended as you probably know a horde of armed trump supporters gathered in dc on january. Sixth their shit stained president gave a speech to them early in the day Which he ended by telling them to go marched down to the capitol building and force the house and senate to hand the election to him. They caused a ruckus outside for a bit and then capitol police let these fucking assholes storm the building capitol police may or may not have opened the barricades that still somewhat disputed but certainly once they were open. Police step aside. I will spare you the imagine if these were. Blm protesters spiel because the evidence speaks for itself. Once the terrorists were inside they were allowed to freely roam throughout the building where they occupied congressional offices and the senate and house floors there were few clips of police teargassing teasing or pushing back. Most we saw them standing by taking selfies. And letting the terrorists do whatever they want. The photos of guys walking around with reams of zip ties suggests they planned to take hostages side note. Police found pipe bomb said in the rnc building prompting both the rnc and dnc buildings evacuate as well. All reps and senators were evacuated and didn't reconvene until the building was cleared later that night as far as i can tell capital police Made very few if any arrests. But we're not here for a fucking play by play We try to go a layer below the surface on this show. And i'd like to talk about what is going to happen next now. I don't know what will happen. Next but I've been through a few cycles of this bullshit in america now and i think i've gotten pretty good at predicting these things. If you're a long-time listener you know that. I believe in socialism. If you're new to the show and that's an issue for you just hear me out. Let's talk about the realities of fascism and the neo liberal democratic party order now. Neoliberal is a word that gets thrown around a lot. But you rarely hear it defined so i think many of us kind of tune it out. Wikipedia sums it up well. Privatization deregulation globalization free trade austerity and reductions in government spending in order to increase the role of the private sector in the economy and society. At first glance. You might think that sounds a lot like republicans and you're right good job Conservative is the word we often associated with republicans which is also true. But i think that that is a little more to do with like cultural or social issues when it comes to economics increasingly especially since bill clinton democrats have embraced neoliberalism. To and the problem with neoliberalism. Is it's real fucking bad at fighting fascism..

"Speculation. And that's our job here so go we wanna look at her some anomalies. Some of the things that were weird that happened like you pointed out there have been hundreds of trump rallies and there really hasn't been any violence. If there was the mainstream media would have loved to highlight it. So what did happen today. Well i mean. I've seen some weird video. I saw the capitol hill cops open up a barrier and deck and people to come toward the capitol building. What does that mean. I don't know we don't know the context. I stopped video of capitol hill police officer leading a group of people who so called. Breached the ramparts up into the senate toward the senate chamber saying. Come this way come this way. was out a part of crowd control. We don't we don't have the whole picture but it certainly isn't anomaly. Unlike a lot of people who who are talking about this. I've actually been in several. Capitol hill lockdown stock. Paul when i worked for you in the cannon house office building. We had some triggered some halloween Staffers went through the metal detector with a funny costume on that they found later and they locked us down and apparently once there was supposedly a shooter. They locked down. They locked down several times. They kept claiming that airplanes were about to fight into our building. And i do have to say that. The there was a mythology about the capitol hill. Police officers They're not on nisshin. I can tell you for a fact that the way that they've handled previous lockdowns they they were if anything very inconsistent in how they did things but it's still was strange because they knew days in advance if this big rally was coming yet. It didn't seem like they had made any adjustments to how they handle capitol hill in advance of an expected million people. In of course apparently a million million and a half people there so there are a lot of anomalies that i think needs to be discussed in the hopefully in a sober way but really scratching our heads and asking the question. We bono who business. It's from all this. Well you know. i do. Pay a lot of attention except a lot of the suspicions about cultural marxism because It said that their goal is to cause social disruption. Make it bad and make obscene where there's so much chaos they then they move in. And that's been traditional how marxism works communism. They march into the chaos. And they they take over and so we've had a lot of this extremism in the local area especially and then this last year especially With the lockdown which was a big cause of a lot of our problem. Of course that was government inspired. And there's proof that the lockdown was a good medical maneuver for for helping people so but There was a lot of violence going on then. On top of the lockdown then we had the demonstrations by black lives matter antifa and they go out there and all of a sudden you see some real violence coming. Yeah tarrant on on burning..

"Flynn's concern about expulsions and expelling American diplomats from Russian response because the war on terror would suffer and that somehow. Is Worthy of his arrest. Of course, if you're a police state liberal like the, you know Sal pless sell out Nicole Wallace Matt I've never heard of before Miller and obvious corrupt the credit inge Weisman. Yeah. That makes perfect sense. Put them in jail. Now, you may say, well, maybe everybody was confused year maybe Flynn was confused and when he was talking about expelling Russian diplomats, he really meant sanctions show he clearly meant sanctions. Even though they were two separate as because you know the leftist now Flynn's just not that bright despite he was a fact that he was a brilliant three star intelligence tactician and lieutenant general in the military. Here's an interview. Flynn, gave immediately afterwards to the daily caller f before this whole thing went down a case you're even remotely confused about being confused. From the daily caller, he says, Flynn City Cross no lines at his conversation with the Bachelor. Kislyak. If I did believe me the FBI. Down my throat, my clearance would be pulled. There were no lines cross. Flynn said there was a brief discussion of the thirty five Russian diplomats who were being expelled by Obama in retaliation for Moscow's alleged interference in the two thousand sixteen elections. Folks, you understand the disgrace, these people are. And again Sally Yates Zero Dignity Zero Integrity lying corrupt crat. Lord acton warning personified.

"Folks Biden's in real trouble here I just want to point out one more thing that undercover huber one of the great social media accounts out there. I encourage you to follow pointed out a month ago and I discussed it on the show. How by Really a mental midget who's losing it by the day. But even when Biden was all there, he was not particularly bright guy. This is a put you back in chains guy. Undercover Huber brought up the fascinating idea that by. Who Wanted Flynn prosecuted for the absurd Logan Act and maybe need deep in this witch. That he may have gotten the idea from. His legal adviser Chief-of-staff. High profile lawyers. No. By may have gotten the idea from the TV, show the West Wing. Fascinating. Biden's given speeches before they closely resemble speeches given on the television show the West Wing about the white, house. One of the final episodes called transition of the West Wing TV show. It comes up that they should investigate the incoming administration for the Logan Act. Wouldn't it be incredible. If creepy sleepy Joe got the idea and suggested they prosecute Mike Flynn, a decorated three star Lieutenant General. For the Logan from TV show. It would totally fit with the Biden memo. Are Moving on. Here's AIDS going on again, getting caught Cole busted ally by Ted. Cruz who did a phenomenal job? I. Love to watch Sally. Yates go back and forth with people of Superior intellects like Mike Lee Ted Cruz Josh Holly and others Sally Yates is clearly an inferior lawyer inferior intellect who can't even lie that. Well. So she's asked here about surveilling the trump campaign and she pulls a stunt I warned you about Gosh for years ago we weren't spying. On the trump campaign we were spying on Carter page. Yeah. WHO WORKED FOR THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN? Yeah. But he had left. Yes. But you've got his emails from when he was with the trump campaign she tries this stunt I'm going to debunk in the second but Sally Yates isn't that smart can't figure that out. Of course she's not that bright and inferior at best intellect Ted Cruz catches are in a ally. This is just wonderful check this out. When did you first become aware? That the Obama, administration was surveilling the Donald Trump campaign. The Obama Administration was not surveilling dog to kick so FIS applications not surveillance. That five application was for Carter page was a former member at the trump campaign. So, your testimony is that that that the investigation Carter, page had nothing to do with the Donald Trump campaign. Now I'm suggesting you ask me as more surveillance the campaign you don't get it both ways as the campaign or not. Centered I'm trying to give you what is the accurate information. Harder page was a former member of the trump campaign at the time that the visor was initiating it. What was the reason for the FIS, on Carter page? There were a number of reasons firstly, got the information that I'm trying to out here that the Russians had made the overture that they wanted to be able to assist the trump king. Hornets said it had nothing to do with the trump campaign. I said that he was not a member of the trump campaign at the time that we initiated. Listen I. Cruises. Acuity. Legal Abilities. Debate skills are an a plus plus. Whether you support the man or not I I actually endorsed him early in presidential. Campaign. Sally Yates is not Sally Yates is not even good liar. No No. No. We got a warrant on Carter page. Why? Because he was a member of the trump campaign you numbskulls. Now. As for the lie that they weren't surveilling the trump campaign, which you cannot tell the truth ever know integrity at all ninety none, it's really disgusting no integrity or dignity just come clean. You were spying on Carter page only because he was a member of the trump campaign because you wanted to spy on the trump campaign very simple could have you got nervous I like you put a little think of I know what you're doing there dropped out this Joe, gave me a little like mental but vocal queue excuse me I'm back kid his. Here's a photo of Jim commies own testimony suggesting that Sally Yates said, we weren't spying on the trump campaign is a total lie. Here it is. Jim Komi himself. Quote I have been authorized by the DOJ to confirm that the FBI, is part of our counter intelligence mission is investigating the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the two thousand sixteen election and that includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the trump campaign. And the Russian government whether there was any coordination between the campaign campaign campaign campaign and Russia's efforts. Again Joe these people think we're stupid. This is the problem with Sally Yates why the media but watching MSNBC you this hearing was a huge success for the Democrat. It's Hilarious to watch you Hilarious to watch these idiots Matthew Miller the hapless sell out Nicole Wallace and again these mental numskulls with double digit. IQ's try to spin that comment like it was a success it's an obvious line. If you have any dignity at all, you'd be like Miss Yates that's not what the F. B. I. who was conducting the investigation said. Jim Komi sworn raise your right hand testimony said they were investigating the trump campaign. So as Jim Komi lying or are you lying? You are Yates of course, 'cause that's what you do. Because she has no zero integrity at all. Is Involved in the biggest most corrupt spying operation in US history and doesn't have the guts the dignity, the self respect suggested Mitt. She did something really really awful. I have zero zero respect for Sally Yates. Governments Fall. And tyrannies sprout like Chia pet seeds because of people. Like Sally Yates I'm not kidding with zero dignity and.

"All right Ding Ding. So before we get started on the Sally Yates stuff which the mainstream media conveniently nor because it's devastating narrative. The big narrative that Barack Obama was the most corrupt President United States history. They want to avoid that. They want to keep that at that label on Nicholson of course, because he was a Republican. Just quickly on the twitter thing. So twitter suspended team trump's account not donald trump specific accounts whereby team trump's account I'm just GONNA leave I've warned you repeatedly and a warn you. Again, it is only a matter it's on my good friend, joepags and radio as a radio show as well. He is suspended as well for daring to post about Hydroxy Clark where you're not allowed to do that. You know we're back in the dark ages. Again. Folks I am an owner of Parlor I. Think you know that if disclosed a thousand times? I'm just telling you. There is an alternative out there to their s parlor P., A. R., L. E. R. GO check it out. We are exploding we're closing in on four million users. Now there's a reason because people are tired of this nonsense and people are finding on parlor more engagement. Go check it out. Don't put up with this twitter stuff. Why why? Why are we doing this? They really can't stand you and Jack. The owner a twitter Jack Dorsey doesn't care. He doesn't care one bit where you think he's making a lot of money from his other enterprise. He doesn't care twitter's like a plaything for him. Just, putting that out there because it's not gonNA stop there is a market alternative checkout parlor. We'd love to have you over there. All right. Let me get to this and. This is important. So yesterday Sally Yates who was a Department of Justice official? Intimately involved in these spying operation on the trump team, she actually signed warrants to spy on the trump team and the investigation into Mike. Flynn which she amazingly doubled down on yesterday despite the Flynn case being entirely discredited let's get to the video. I've got four or five clips from this yesterday. Here's Yates. Doing What is now going to be the liberal, Police State Democrats new tactics? These are sick people they're deranged. They have serious serious issues they're looking to institute police, state tactics and abusive power as a new means of doing business liberals. That is not us. Conservative. We respect you know rule of law and that kind of thing you know what I'm saying Joe that old fashioned stuff all liberty big constitutional God given right that can. Pass Oh say. So. Here's Yates yesterday they know they're busted spied on trump gates. No, she signed the warrant to spy on trump. So what are they going to do? Now they need a fall guy remember that show the fall guy that was a great show. They need a fall guy that I love that show David a fall guy to that theme song was the best. So their fall guy is going to be. Trouble. pleased. Jim Call Me. Now Jim Komi as you well know I am no fan of. Jim Komi it was. The Not possibly was the worst FBI director in history intimately involved in spying operation on trump. But call me didn't do it alone. Yates in them know that Jim Thome isn't liked on either side of the aisle they hillary team hates are hates him because he started the email? And didn't stop it in time. And obviously, the trump team and Republicans can't stand him because he was responsible for the spying operation on the trump team. So here's Yates figuring out commes convenient fall guy and listen to this back and forth with Lindsey Graham where she's getting ready to throw. Jim Kolbe under the bus. Check this out. Here's what I want to understand is a counterintelligence investigation that led to the interview. You didn't authorize interviews matter of fact, you wanted to go to the White House and tell them about the problem didn't you? Time I thought that was the more media issue and when. I when you heard about the interview, you got upset, didn't you? And I was upset dragged comey didn't coordinate that with acted unilaterally like, yes a loss. Becoming go rogue. Terms. There we go to. Eko. So just to be clear. Sally Yates from the Department of Justice former. Anymore former department of Justice official who personally signed the couple of these warrants to spy on the trump team and was there and could've shutdown this Flynn Mike Flynn witch-hunt immediately and did nothing is now throwing Komi under the bus as Komi was the only one who had anything to do with this he grow here he want wrote. I wrote here but was the Department of Justice that signed off on the warrant to spy on the trump team. And by the way, the origins of these entire investigations where political. Hillary team paying a foreign spy gin up this information on trump. But don't worry Joe did the whole thing it was called book don't mistake this for a defense a combing the worst FBI director in human history. Eight and corrupted. Himself a swamp rat of the highest order and an ego maniac narcissists. But if you Jim Komi was the only one responsible as despite the fact that the Department of Justice signed off on this and the origins were from the Clinton. Campaign. John Brennan and the Obama Team, you are seriously insane. So get ready I warned you were really good here preparing you for narratives right. The narrative going forward it's going to be it wasn't the Obama team it was a rogue FBI director. The Obama team. Appears in FBI texts remember that the lead investigators for trump the White House is running this. The police wants to know everything. We're doing poets press the United States was Obama at the time remember that. Andrew McCabe emailing Lisa page saying, Hey, we're going to go over to the white. House the and speak with one voice on this. Remember. All that. Remember the Peter Stroke. Notes Obama said put the right people on this. They have to separate you from Obama. They don't want they want Obama in a bubble they're gonNA blame this whole thing on Komi get ready I've never I've never stayed. You're wrong with narratives have I but I tell you the other day but the unemployment benefits study from Yale, right how it was total garbage they included only fulltime workers watching Fox this morning they have this this..

"I actually am sort of a Weirdo Curto in that I actually came out of school with my MBA. And so I didn't start off in politics. I started off as an associate buyer at macy's and there's a black woman and these two shutouts and that's right. I used to be the MS neck wear buyer. But they're at a black woman boss who in there were not a lot of us in our space in for you to make it to buy or was a really big deal and she would be on me to not touch my keep my mouth when trying to build an excel sheet. She said use the She was stand over me and like make me use the control keys. That was very important because when I had so much of the job up I needed to be quick and I need to be fast. And she trained me privately. She was hard on me privately. I had to present. And she would make me present to her and I would you know so basically wannacry baseball but you know I thank God that she was tough and got together privately and then when we were or in the presentation she totally had my bag. I mentioned earlier. Cars Wilson when we started in DC. She looked at me she said Keenan. You're going to have a hard time. I'm in DC and you know she's like A soothsayer in this and she said to me she said you liked to get things done and people don't always like I to get things done and I just want you to prepare yourself for that. But and she mentored me in that way and then like Angela mention there. The men in my life like other mill hill staffers at our friends they joke in there. Like you guys got this underground Rogo and of women because we get together and we you know we figured out if you want to have women of Color in jobs. They've gotTA know about it. They've got to be prepared for it and you've got to tell women there's some science behind you know this about asking. Women got ask woman run like seven times or something similar the jobs I figured out that. You've gotTa tell US staffer a woman of color. I could see you as the L. D. four and she's like really I don't know if I'm not I'm not ready and you have to be a sort of inside. No I think you can do this. And then I've been the benefactor of that sort of thing I would say for me. I think having other women of Color in your office office actually helps a lot when you're not the only one to provide a counter in terms of the advice that other people are giving you so I remember you know. So in my first 'til office when I was working for Senator Hagan and had a conversation and my ldl was like you don't need to go to Grad School. You could just you know. Just pounded for several years whatever work it out CETERA and there was a black woman who was in. La My office and She pulled me to the side and she she was like. Don't listen to him. He's a white man. You're black woman. You're going to Grad school because they're paying for it and you're gonNA come back and it's going to be fine and then that was like such valuable experience to be able to hear just just in terms of somebody breaking down like the rules that exists for one group do not not necessarily exists for you in a very sad reality but it's true and sometimes you need somebody to share that reality with you so so like everybody here. I have two sets all start with. I think the very first black woman that I saw that like just made me be like I. I need to be like this. I was a baby. Staffer work for the Blackhawks. I was this song and she was communications director and she did very similar. Things pulled me to the side but there were a couple of key things that I just sort sort of stuck out throughout my whole career so the one. She went away for like a month and I was like a staff assistant. I was green and Shit. And she said to me like you're going to have to deal with press while I'm away for a little bit. I knew that on the hill to give your contact list was was a big deal. You know you're not supposed to give me she goes. These are my relationships and I have worked very hard to maintain them. And you can't can't take that away from me so remember that throughout your career. So that's one moment and I think that that has really I do that. Every single thing I do. He was probably the longevity of my career has sort of existed because I build real relationships with people and in a transactional world and we would all all admit that. That's sort of my gift in that. I've learned to do that over and over again by the second one is sort of you know Dubbed from this is that we have what we call like our sister mentors So there was when I was middle of career. We were sort of looking around and we're reliable. Who's our hose are the person that we're going to model our career actor and I think you know I? This was when I mean I don't know ten fifteen years ago there. This room would not exist. It wouldn't have and so we really took care of each other. We found jobs for each other. We corrected everybody's resumes. We found like we would push you when you were crying. We'd pick people back up. I mean and it has stopped throughout these years and I think even now when someone quits his job or is not doing well we figure out ways even just like we'll find them seat mommy or a contract position or whatever it is that allows them to stay in this work but also that Ab- lifts them and reminds him that there's somebody else said Is Looking out for them. I think that that was that was a harder lesson to learn throughout my career is like sort of the. Take that leap. But it's a lot easier when you have a soft paste the land with a group group of women who are taking care of you and I have so many women obviously but the one that comes to mind That has impacted me. Most recently gently is my predecessor The woman who had the job before I did The chief of staff role is Linda ship and She was also an API. Okay woman In this leadership position and she was really the first time that I saw what A woman of Color An API woman could look like in leadership she was you know she was serious. She was always had the right answer. She was so good about providing feedback and she was a strong leader but then she was also compassionate. So I think she showed me a lot about how to emulate that and be That type of manager and leader as well and you all have hit on this and some way or another but it is being the only round round the room and the lack of diversity on Capitol Hill and it has has gotten better but we know there's always room for improvement and all of you have really great important roles. So what are some ways that you working to make sure you're not the only brown rural no room and bringing people along with your especially those younger staffers color..

"Whether they're thousands of miles from home Home Higher one money was Christina. Henderson I am a legislative assistant for senator. Chuck Schumer work on Education and workforce issues. I'm also a CO founder of the Black Congressional Lions and we are so grateful grateful for this opportunity to partner with girls guide. So thank you sean. T for that In terms and I have also been thinking about. This was like such a heavy question but all of you have chosen someone who's living. I'M GONNA go back further Especially given the political time that we are in I myself harking back to the words of the late Congresswoman Barbara Jordan often was from Texas. Sir whose words just rang so true during the Nixon impeachment. So if you haven't heard her speeches from that time go back. Because she spoke with such such clarity around the importance of the Constitution in the importance of democracy. And I feel like in this moment we need those reminders And so that's that's that's someone who is inspiring right now. Awesome answers are eight. So let's really get into our discussion so this season we're talking about public service. So what made each of you choose that as a career out of all of the things that you could do and then for me I also want to know. So what made you choose Capitol Hill and I say that because I did work for a congresswoman on the campaign side but for me it was never even thought brought to move to DC or go to Capitol Hill and a lot of it had to do with not seeing a lot of people that look like me so even though I had entered the political space as a campaign staffer that still felt something. I was out of bounds where I really didn't belong. So what made you all cheese. This path off take a stab at it so speaking of Just needing to see in so much of why why we do. The black. Women's congressional alliance is about Bringing women along in exposing them because if you can see it and you you can see yourself in the role than that possibility becomes available to you. I didn't really choose public service so much as it was just sort of there so I was in the N.. Double ACP Youth Council and went up to the board chairman who looked very important and I didn't really know titles seventeen eight years old. I globe I need a job and he says you start in my office two weeks from now that was Julian bond son Michael Michael Julian bond who was in Atlanta City Council member at that time and it's sort of found me I found myself doing constituent services which led to planning events and then my dad looks up one day. He's like God running the office. How do they know how old you are? And it was really a The council member. Just let me dive in we upbeat. I in so that sort of it found its way to me and sort of stumbled into Congress similarly. I went onto a fundraiser. Trying to support a sore. Who has been state? Senator Frederick Wilson as struck a good conversation with her campaign manager. She she said. I'll baby you smart. Why don't you come out Mama's eating and all of us who are laughing can see it because I'm from Atlanta and if your elders say something you're like well okay now? I have to do whatever whatever I was planning on doing is not happening. So she says come to our campaign. Hey Meeting and so I go and they say will you know. You're the youngest in the room. Take the notes and I I. I had a full-time GIG. Farmer Rep in the notes back as a memo and they're like Oh can you do facebook. Okay yeah can do. The facebook and it turned into twitter target and K. U. driver. Can you staffer ultimately. Can you take a leaf in your job manage this campaign in that. Let me to Washington story allthough. So it's sort of. I mean it is very similar. I actually didn't even know that public service could be a career or working on the hill was an option I stumbled upon it very happenstance somewhere somewhere circumstances where I was like. I just WANNA job and I've bounced around. I think a lot I mean. I did a lot of political campaign. Work organizing with labor unions. That type type thing. What brought me back the helps I used to? I started on the hill and then I came back to the hill fifteen years later because I was decidedly not a hill person in in my head much Assaf building. The team always laugh when I say that because their life is too late the Jig is up here now I don't know I feel like there's the two pathways to power right in our work hard. We work long hours. We don't get paid a lot and it's it's challenging but it's very fulfilling but it is also kind of a privilege to be able to have this level of access to be the voice for a lot of folks even when times the top into also to help shift power structures. I don't think that we really sometimes you take it for granted and I think for me coming back to the hill articulated comments at this. I knew what I was walking into. I'd like to pretend like I was like oh this is not going to be as challenging as I thought I mean I came back right after trump's so that's by for me every day that that's what keeps me in it and keeps me serving because I can always always remember that and I was sort of people because there's this one time I was walking the office I was exhausted. I'm walking across the Capital Plaza. And there were these like little black kids and can you imagine if you got to work here every day and I was like I really need to appreciate this a little bit more because because they see us going into the offices and they get does serve as a reminder that this is an opportunity to from where I didn't even know that could be a path. I came bumping it. I didn't think of it as public service but my parents were always engaged in some sort of civic engagement before I even really knew what it was. I was knocking doors with my Dad Dad. Just who knows what it was four but I was the cute kids so someone would slam the door in his face as is his theory. My Baby Book. I only recently looked at this again and in the front it gave some little news announcement on how I was. The day I was born. Another Chicano was born for the 'cause like that's at the top of my baby book. So they were they were in it was the seventy s and they were ready to to make some impact photo of. It's pretty very adorable next to like a lot of other and more embarrassing things so a lot that page off so I grew up with it but I didn't think of it as public service. I I just thought of like there were problems with my community so my parents would march. There were problems in my community so my parents would take people go vote and I really do not want to do it as a career. You had friends who were like in student government and they wanted you know all these other things and I just wanted. I mean I was like eighteen. I didn't want to be anything like my parents I. I wanted to go into comedy writing so I got very into that and just sort of like blocked out anything political but it kept finding me when I was in college prop when I grew up in California prop one eighty seven and then got involved in that a little bit and just couldn't really sit by the sidelines. And then when I was graduating I wasn't really sure what I wanted onto do but I thought I'd try my hands and different things and every time I thought about doing another job I kept coming back to it and now you know twenty ninety five years in or whatever it is. I don't want to do the math but a very many many way on time. It's kind of been basically my entire hire career and it really. I think it was just kind of what I grew up with Just wanting to see change and in terms of the hill I was in DC. Doing some other job and genuinely what happened was just wind up liking other hill staff it was just I found my in crazy nerds and yeah and I was like I guess these are my people how staff my goodness and so I just got really early into hanging out with them and then took a job and again. Every time I've thought about leaving it's like Oh but there's my friends at the vending machine. I can't the eating dinner together so I just keep doing it. So it's a little bit of like I'm in it for the cause but also just the reality of the day to day just loving the people I get to work work with so I would say I have like the exact opposite experience rem you. I grew up in a super like apolitical household child of immigrants. We grew up in a very small town in rural South Carolina. Politics was not a thing we discussed. Voting was not really a thing we discussed and I think you know my parents. At least I was the oldest child child and there was an expectation of what success looks like. It's a lawyer. It's an engineer. It's a doctor or something like that and I was like. I don't want to do any any of that because my parents said that's good so I need to do something different and that in seventh grade I was like I'm starting a Young Democrats Club at my middle school but but I had a teacher at the time who was willing to meet me outside of class and we got three of my friends together. We went to her house after school one day and she taught us. It's about the different organizations in our hometown. And who's running for what and City Council on how mirrors work and all that stuff and I would say from then on I just had tunnel vision Asian I didn't entertain any sort of other career option and then in college. I got my first hill internship and then similar to you I was like I found my people. This is where I belong. I see myself here. I'm going to figure out a way to make it work so as soon as I graduated from college. I moved up here without a job. Bob I printed out my resumes on the Nice piece of stock paper and then I just went door to door and started handing it out to the staff assistant. Those sitting in the front of the office which I didn't realize at the time doesn't have any influence in.

I wanted to go into comedy writing so I got very into that and just sort of like blocked out anything political but it kept finding me when I was in college prop when I grew up in California prop one eighty seven and then got involved in that a little bit and just couldn't really sit by the sidelines. And then when I was graduating I wasn't really sure what I wanted onto do but I thought I'd try my hands and different things and every time I thought about doing another job I kept coming back to it and now you know twenty ninety five years in or whatever it is. I don't want to do the math but a very many many way on time. It's kind of been basically my entire hire career and it really. I think it was just kind of what I grew up with Just wanting to see change and in terms of the hill I was in DC. Doing some other job and genuinely what happened was just wind up liking other hill staff it was just I found my in crazy nerds and yeah and I was like I guess these are my people how staff my goodness and so I just got really early into hanging out with them and then took a job and again. Every time I've thought about leaving it's like Oh but there's my friends at the vending machine. I can't the eating dinner together so I just keep doing it. So it's a little bit of like I'm in it for the cause but also just the reality of the day to day just loving the people I get to work work with so I would say I have like the exact opposite experience rem you. I grew up in a super like apolitical household child of immigrants. We grew up in a very small town in rural South Carolina. Politics was not a thing we discussed. Voting was not really a thing we discussed and I think you know my parents. At least I was the oldest child child and there was an expectation of what success looks like. It's a lawyer. It's an engineer. It's a doctor or something like that and I was like. I don't want to do any any of that because my parents said that's good so I need to do something different and that in seventh grade I was like I'm starting a Young Democrats Club at my middle school but but I had a teacher at the time who was willing to meet me outside of class and we got three of my friends together. We went to her house after school one day and she taught us. It's about the different organizations in our hometown. And who's running for what and City Council on how mirrors work and all that stuff and I would say from then on I just had tunnel vision Asian I didn't entertain any sort of other career option and then in college. I got my first hill internship and then similar to you I was like I found my people. This is where I belong. I see myself here. I'm going to figure out a way to make it work so as soon as I graduated from college. I moved up here without a job. Bob I printed out my resumes on the Nice piece of stock paper and then I just went door to door and started handing it out to the staff assistant. Those sitting in the front of the office which I didn't realize at the time doesn't have any influence in.
