But state patrol. Meanwhile, says there were two hundred and forty four crashes and two hundred and twelve spinouts across Minnesota yesterday men dot issued travel advisories for parts of southwestern Minnesota yesterday.

"Russia. Yeah. And I think that was that was smart that we've backed out of that too. Senator smith. Respond. The problem with that treaty. Is that this been widely known for years that the Russians were not completely abiding by that treaty? The question that we have to ask ourselves is when we back away from these multi we back away from these agreements and understand with other countries. Do we enhance our leverage to get the kind of result that we want or do we lose our leverage to get the kind of result that we want this is I think the point of the Iran Iran deal Israel is vitally important and special relationship that we have in in the Middle East and extremely important relationship. And we want we need for Israel to be able to defend itself and our most important strategic partner, I would say in the Middle East. But the question is is it more likely or less likely that Iran develop nuclear weapons, if we are in the deal or out of the deal. This is something that reasonable people can discuss can disagree. That's my assessment that it is more likely. They would go forward. And it's also important to remember that though the United States has backed out of this deal with Iran that other partner countries have not backed away from it, and they continue to be in agreement with Iran around this. So it remains to be seen what will happen in the coming days. The White House is going to be deciding whether they impose significant sanctions on these countries if they continue to do work and do business with Iran, and there's there's a lot of these are these are very important discussions that require. I think a lot of a lot of thinking. As a reminder to our listeners. You're listening to the US Senate debate between US Senator Gina Smith and state Senator Karin Housley now, let's turn our attention to another issue. That's more domestic in this debate took place last week. You're listening to it on C span radio WCS PFM Washington. And the debate comes to us, courtesy w. Keo guns and gun control starting with you. Senator Housley are there specific changes to the gun law that you would support including? Mandatory background checks. Enclosing the gun show the poll. And I think this is what a lot of people don't understand is. When you do buy a gun at a gun show from a licensed gun dealer. You do have to go through a background check. I went to three gun shows this summer and went up to every single gun dealer. And you do have to go through a background check and ends at in in all of the mass shootings that have happened in the last couple of years each one of those gun the shooters would have passed a background check. So that's that's not where the issue is the issue lies in mental health. And during my time in the state Senate. We we allocated eighty million dollars just this last year towards mental health is a huge issue here in Minnesota and in the United States in behind every Maschera a serious mental health issue. So I those those are two of the things, and then we always we have to keep our schools safe in our building safe. We also allocated money in the state Senate for that too. Because as a mother of four when you send your child to school or. To the synagogue, you wanna make sure that they're safe. So we had money allocated to make sure that our schools were safe..

"Thanks, john. Now, we're gonna turn to agriculture. It's a big part of Minnesota's academy. Is a big part of our the whole state's economy. Congress adjourned without passing farm Bill the Senate passed it, but the house did not what can you do to ensure Minnesota farmers Senator Housley that if you go to Washington they can have certainty in a farm Bill. Thank you. The president did come here to Minnesota just a little under a month ago. And that was the first thing that he said to me when we were backstage is what are the farmer saying? And I said, you know, what you gotta get this done sooner rather than later. You know, thank you for your renegotiation of NAFTA and the United States Mexico Canada agreement that's helped the farmers. We also have to get one step further and get China on board. But we also we also need to get that farm Bill done. And I know Senator Smith has commercials saying she worked on the farm Bill, but it's not done that farmville is not done in these farmers. They're not just looking out to a week from now a month from now, they're looking out six months or at five years and ten years, they need that that security from that farm and the different the difference that I do I do have a direct line to the president sending Senator Joni Ernst and it's worked for her. She she represents her farmers in Iowa can go straight to the president and tell them what they're thinking. And that's exactly what I will be doing because we need to get that farm Bill down because. The people are farmers here in Minnesota are counting on it. Karin Housley is a Republican seeking the Senate seat in Minnesota running against Tina Smith, a democratic Senator who replaced Senator Al Franken last January C span radio sooner Smith. As I mentioned the Senate did pass the farm Bill, but it's still did not get done..

"Grand? We're gonna have a conversation and a debate about that office. It's an open seat democrat, Julie, blah, blah, and Republican Pam Myra. But our guest right now is James home in the Washington Post. He's Minnesota native. He follows national politics. And he always keeps an eye on his home state James we were talking earlier just kind of about accessibility of candidates. So here's a little insight. Maybe you've you've seen this too. Is that I'll just go through the races Stober less accessible than ridden in Phillips more accessible than Paulson Louis more accessible than crag and in the first Hagedorn more accessible than fan, which is really interesting because I want to talk to you about what you're hearing in the first district between Dan Fiene, and Jim Hagedorn. That's of course, Tim walls seats that's open because Republicans have been optimistic on the seat. But Democrats have spent a lot of money there. Yeah. I think Republicans and Democrats are sort of feeling. Toward the Democrats that this is just a district were the president's popular even in a good year for Democrats either. They haven't cancelled all their advise the way they have in the iron range market. Democrats really have Britain off the district up north. But I I just it's it's this is exactly one of those kinds of districts that just shows how the the country is becoming a lot of ways more polarized, and in sorting out between regions and and demographics. So one of the dynamics down there. Well, there's two kind of specific things that you should kind of be aware of the as you think about Minnesota one is trade and tariffs. Obviously a lot of corn and soybean farmers in the first district and while the president still popular it's declined a little and that could be a factor. The second factor is wall seems to be running batter naturally. It's his home district. Then all other Republicans in that district, and that seems to be helping feeling a little so if there is a dynamic there, it could be the Tim walls kind of drag Stanfield over the finish line by a point or two. Absolutely. And you know, that frankly, that's that was Wallace's argument for for nominating him. It was he could he could do well downstate, and he is, and I I don't think any of the other Democrats who were going for governor would would be would be doing that. Well, and I think if there were other Democrats not criticizing them the first district race wouldn't be as close Thursday night. We have the first face to face debate between Senator Tina Smith and state Senator Karin Housley. Yesterday. Democrats dropped four hundred thousand dollars in ads against KARN. Housley? Is there some buzz that that race is tightening in Washington? There's not okay. To be honest. I think what Democrats say you have to run the traps, you can't just not run. And it was always going to be tighter than the police show. The post actually has a story today from a reporter who looked at sort of the metoo dynamic in that race. Yeah. We're heavily talking about we had it in mourning. Good. And and you know, it is kind of a heavily, and I'm sure this will come up in the debate. She's talking about Brad Kavanagh lot and his really taken his side. And but at the same time as attacking Tina Smith for standing by Keith Ellison. So you have this weird dynamic were both female candidates are trying not to be defined by misdeeds of of men in their party, right? Well, attacking their opponent for being insufficiently supportive of of purported sexual assault victims. Yeah. No. That is a an interesting dynamic, and we haven't talked about the attorney general's race. But let me just say, here's my message to you. It's the nastiest race I've ever seen in twenty plus years between Keith Ellison and Doug wardlow. There's never been a nastier race in Minnesota. So. I will send you some links to some fun ads later today. Please. All right. Sounds good. James? Thanks for joining us. My pleasure blades. Always nice to talk to you. And and look forward to connecting after the election to debrief on on. What happened sounds good? Thanks James by James in from the Washington Post now a week from now, we're going to know who won and who didn't win and let us know what you think eight one eight hundred seven tax nine eight nine nine two six give us your costs. If you're an independent voter and there's still some races. You're undecided on what is it that you're looking for one? Texter writes what I'm looking for. Sadly, I'm not finding is a candidate who is moderate understands. The concept of compromise is not a party hack, and who has a personal ethic of integrity. I'm curious what race your identity that with and which races?.

"He and other Republicans said that altering the constitution would be a lengthy process, and that it would be up to congress, not the president the legal consensus among every serious scholar on the right and the left including Kellyanne Conway's husband is that it would take a constitutional amendment to end birthright citizenship, Ryan reminded Republicans. They didn't like it when Barack Obama changed immigration policy by executive Fiat, and it shouldn't be any different. When Trump tries to Trump's hap-. Hazard proposal, which outlined during an interview with axios, isn't that unusual? The president often tells aides to craft executive orders even when he's told that his thirty to do. So as legally dubious while the proposal has gotten vociferous support from Trump's top immigration adviser. Stephen Miller, many White House officials, including press secretary Sarah Sanders were startled by it. Trump told axios to the White House counsel's office it even signed off on the language for the executive order. That was news to them. Number two. Trump's visit to grief-stricken Pittsburgh was met with protests and the family of one of the victims in the synagogue attack declined to meet with him the trip was hastily planned and was executed with no advanced public ternary and without local politicians the city's mayor publicly called on Trump not to come and breaking with protocol. The White House did not invite the democratic congressman who represents the district where the shooting occurred as the president touchdown in south western Pennsylvania, almost two thousand demonstrators assembled not far from where some of the shootings victims had been buried earlier in the day. Trump didn't speak publicly during the brief trip. Instead, he quietly paid tribute at tree of life synagogue by Ling flowers for the eleven victims and visiting a hospital to see officers who were wounded in Saturday's shooting number three Republicans continue to use Justice brick Kavanagh's contentious confirmation process as a rallying cry to gin up the right Trump is praised cavenaugh at vents for GOP candidates in every state that he's visited other Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham. From South Carolina are focusing on Cavanaugh almost exclusively as they travel the country stumping for Senate candidates, but some Republican operatives say that anger over Kavanagh's confirmation process has begun to dissipate at the grassroots level. According to focus groups polls and other indications that they're monitoring closely. They fear that conservative turnout in excitement might be depressed after last week's hate crime as well as the mailbox scare Trump's approval rating has fallen a couple points potentially jeopardizing a few key Senate races that has allies had thought were in the bag. There are certain races were the metoo movement is also becoming especially potent in the closing days. The for example, even though it's not one of the top Senate races in the country. The metoo movement is dominating the Minnesota Senate contest between democrat Tina Smith who was appointed to replace Al Franken when he resigned and her Republican challenger Karin Housley, the fight isn't just a result of Franken. Stepping down decision that many Democrats in Minnesota still disagree with its. Also because the state attorney general's race has been up ended by an abuse allegation leveled by an ex girlfriend of democratic nominee and congressman Keith Ellison. And it's because Housley has criticized the treatment of cavenaugh by Democrats. She's made it a central part of her campaign. She's attacking Democrats, and it said publicly that she believes cavenaugh over the women who came forward to accuse him including Christine blazey Ford yet. Ironically at the very same time. She's running ads attacking Smith for not breaking with Keith Ellison. It's created a weird dynamic in my home state where both candidates are accusing the other of being women who don't sufficiently support other women neither candidate wants to be dragged down by the alleged misdeeds of men in their own party. Smith is still heavily favoured to prevail. And that's the daily to two for Wednesday, October thirty first thanks for listening. I'm James Hillman. I'll talk to you tomorrow, which is November.

"My friend. I have a question for you on this very five at five. Okay. So we know we know for a fact that the the mega millions is gonna probably get close to a billion dollars for by the next drawing. Yeah. If we buy the mega millions ticket. And we decided we want to cash in. We don't want to cash it in in the state of California. Do we? No. Thirteen percent would be taken away immediately. Of that amount for the state tax as opposed to six states that have no income tax and dozens of others that have much lower tax rates. They're debating whether to go to four to five or three to four and so on in the Pacific northwest. So you have a. You know, a record breaking. I mean, this is higher than new New York, Maryland, Massachusetts. A New Jersey higher than any of those high tax states is our own California income tax rate. So no thirteen dollars. You would want to be in Texas. Yes, or Nevada. Oh, yes. Yes. I like that line is paradise. I like that. Okay. Well, then it's a deal, Raj. When we hit we're gonna go somewhere else to collect. Okay. Don't tell me you're buying a ticket. Of course, man. It's it's going to be a billion dollars north of five hundred million. I mean, I understand the most successful tax on the poor in the history of mankind is the lottery, very true. But it's but Roger it's for the children. It's it goes to the education and the children. Right. One of these days it actually will. But until they holding my breath. Well, we'll see what happens all it takes is a dollar or two dollars energy because it's a two thousand dollars to two dollars. You might as well burn that two dollars. Oh, well, we'll see. We'll see. I'm no fun at all. This was going to say when I hit though, Raj launches on me. Okay. We'll go with. Luncheon maui. That's a deal. That's right. I was gonna say we'll fly. So. San diego. Not quite good. All right. Well, let's let's dive into the nitty gritty the politicking of the day at cetera. How about this there? We are minding our business. Suddenly, the president United States decides to convene a cabinet meeting at which meeting he declares. He wants a five percent cut from all the agencies. I kinda love this, right? Well, it would be interesting at you know. A three. What is what is the federal budget now three point six trillion? Yup. I can't even compute that. But it sounds like it's going to be, you know, hundreds of billions of dollars off the off the total budget, which would which would what roll it back to twenty seventeen. Yes. So I mean, the budget has gone up so much over two hundred and twelve billion this year. Seventeen increase and the so I I I'd like to in enlisted the climate change advocates. If they want to roll back, you know, emissions of of carbon to nineteen Ninety-one levels or two thousand one levels or whatever the number is, right. I think we ought to roll back the federal budgets those levels because then we would see something significant more than a trillion dollars a year would be shaved off for instance, if we went back to federal budget of eighteen years ago. Well, that's a great point. But then there's also if the fed stops raising rates for a minute here. Roger would we wouldn't have so much money going to go into the servicing the debt. So what Trump's Trump understands this kind of stuff? Exactly the point. I think he is finally realized is that the budget suddenly going to get squeezed by having to come up with interest payments on this twenty one trillion dollars a dead, but he's been contributed to by the way. And all of a sudden, he says, oops, okay? Well, we better start cutting. He was proposing. He was actually he was given a proposal to cut by one percent, the one penny cut, and he said, no, no, no, no. We're gonna do the Dickel cut. So he's I think he's he's been to adding up the numbers. He's good at numbers. And he's realizing oops. Yeah. We'd better start cutting spending. So the good thing. Yeah. It is. Well, I'll take I'll take the ws where we can rack them up. And we'll certainly watch and see what really ends up happening at the end of that conversation. Bad news. If you're a Republican walking around in Minnesota the land of ten thousand lakes is becoming. The land of ten thousand assaults Raj. What the heck is going on up there? Well, it's a tough. It's a tough situation because Minnesota traditionally, you know, the farm labor party is Hubert Humphrey and all the rest of those folks. It's a long democrat party there. Well, not so much anymore. For instance, Karin Housley is challenging for the United States Senate Al Franken substitute, which was the Lieutenant governor there Tina Tina Smith. So Karin Housley all of a sudden it's coming out of nowhere to challenge for that Senate seat where the Democrats thought they had a, you know. So anyway, so the farm labor is getting a little getting a little concerned, they have just dumped their communication staff or William Davis for one week without pay because he was joking on a Facebook post that Democrats would bring Republicans to the team teen November seventh so. The, you know, the the general unleashing of the democrat crazies by Eric Holder by Nancy Pelosi by all these Democrats say, you know, not to mention our favorite the Maxine Waters. All of them advocating what amounts to violence on Republicans. So it turns out now that this is turned into some outright, you know, pushing and shoving where the local state legislators there, sir, Anderson's one of them was punched. A man who was destroyed Republican yard signs, and she called him on it and any puncher, and and she said he charged. It me saying go kill yourself. And then punched. So the Democrats and this is after by the way, another democrat operative was arrested in Nevada for much the same thing assaulting Republicans. The the Breitbart people have put together a list of starting with a school shooting at the baseball game of overt acts of violence against Republicans there now over six hundred separate instances unbelievable. It's. And in some of these cases, I mean, these are just people basically doing constituent outreach. They're just talking to people in public places and people are running up on him just punching him in the side of the head. I mean, it's. It is not lost on me. Right. So that is the land of Paul Wellstone in that Wellstone memorial famously is what tank those Democrats back in two thousand and two of you remember, that's exactly right. And so and Al Franken got taken out by the metoo movements. And and now the this is going to be interesting to see if we can be held by the Democrats, given that this is the level of violence, and one of the things they said, look these people have been attacked. So it's not the Minnesota, wait. It's true. Minnesota's full of very nice people like this kind of stuff. And I think California, we would view it as you know, the normal everyday thing. But but in Minnesota, they have a different way of looking at things. So know, they're all together. And they they're nice to each other. Yes, they are. That's that's usually what you expect from them. All right. What one interesting little development that you sort of foreshadowed a number of months ago when the Janice decision came down, which was a huge supreme court decision that allow. Allowed for a public employees to opt out of the union dues. If they didn't feel like they were being if they didn't want to be represented by the union, they could opt out of those dues and that was established by the supreme court backed up by the supreme court. It was a reversal after forty years of being on the precedent. It's gone. It's out it's over well, the public unions. They're making a run for it here, Raj. They're they're dumping as much money as they can to try to affect us before that wellspring of money dries up as people. Discover hey, I don't have to pay my dues anymore. If I'm not being represented by these guys. Oh, that's right. This is their last hurrah. This ruling Janice versus AFS CME was. Was really a blow a body blow because government in the past local government has been in state government has been collecting forcing their employees to contribute to the unions. In other words, using a public agency to force people to contribute to unions, which in turn contributed to keeping the state house in the local city councils like in San Diego under the union, Tom. So this is a really important moment because they're flush with cash. These unions SEI you and all the rest of them. They're just flush with cash. So what are they doing? They're putting money into ballot initiatives to raise the minimum wage to increase taxes in Maine to Hawaii to to attacks investment properties. Particularly the Trump Tower there were still four hundred units and the president of the Hawaii state teachers association says. Look if he's rich out of state investors could afford multi million dollar properties they can afford to pay more taxes to help educate. Hawaii's children, right? Oh, this is being bankrolled by the fairness project by the sixteen thirty fund by in other words, by George Soros. And by these unions that have said, okay, we've got the money. Now, we'd better spend it in every state. We can't get as much big government as we can possibly squeeze huge. Because this is this is like you said, they're going to go for this last hurrah before the twenty twenty election, and that when everything gets thrown wide open, and they're gonna try to they're gonna try to make as much mischief and create as much drama as they can while they still have access to those very very fungible dollars. Well, that's it. And so they've contributed government. Labor unions have contributed about thirty million dollars in two thousand eighteen for federal elections, which which is interesting because you're seeing that with this dialysis initiative, that's all your ballot at the. You is pushing here in California. Yeah. Ninety nine percent of AFC, which is the government employees union, contributing to federal candidates ninety nine percent unbelievable. Well, the Republicans are running on bigotry. That's. And that's more powerful than money. I I love this. I love this stupid thing. It's slate as well, the Republican, it's they're resorting to bigotry, the, you know. Yeah. Because Ted Cruz was being bigoted towards Beto work last night. Shut up. This is insane. This is wacky. Well, it's late, and you know, slate is they truly unabashedly leftist point of view, they're going to ignore the six hundred plus two instances of violence against Republicans because they're Republicans by Democrats because they're Democrats, and they're going to say the Republicans are running on on bigotry. Well, it isn't bigotry to want the voting rolls to be composed of citizens bigotry to want people who entered the country do so legally it is a tree to want a military that stands up to dictators around the world. And and and successfully it isn't bigotry to to really think that the government is not the best provider of healthcare. There must be a better way. So these guys, you know, everything that they this is a typical democrat playbook and slates the front runner. Any time that they disagree. Then you're, you know, a fill in the blank, racist, homophobic. What have you, and whatever, you leaders bigotry? That's that's their fallback position. And and tying right into that. Because it's all identity politics. Megan mcardle has got a piece in the Washington Post. And basically, she's asking will the Blue Wave collapsed before it reaches the shore, the key poll from this from this op Ed piece by her is she asks this question in the wake of what happened with cavenaugh with all the rage, all the Sturman drawing Raj that went on with with the the consideration of blassie Ford's allegations, and that sort of stuff the poll, quote from her is if the Blue Wave collapses before it hits, the shore Democrats may need to ask whether metoo would other forms of identity politics are really the wave of the democratic future sating. So Roger they actually rethinking identity politics over there on the left, and I think they should. And we've been. Asking him to for a long time. Because for instance, the reaction now even in the mainstream media to the DNA test of Senator Elizabeth Warren has now turned completely against her. The the mockery, of course. From the from the conservative side was was predictable. But now, you get outlets questioning, and and a descendent of Pocahontas was such a thing. Pocahontas? Does now says the DNA thing is is ridiculed the native Americans and she autumn apologized. So I I think the the identity politics thing along with political correctness is finally, you know, getting a reaction in the American general general American public, I must've go the real wave has got to be worried the real wave the hurricane down in Florida because and I should have picked up on this earlier, it really destroyed about six of these panhandle counties that are very very Republican. And the ballot. The mailing ballots. Stuff has started in Florida. The Republicans are doing very well. By the way, there's no Blue Wave down there there about forty thousand goats more coming in so far on the on the mail in ballot for Republicans and Democrats, but the, but the mail in ballots from those six counties that were hard hit by that hurricane zero or near zero versus, you know, thousands and thousands of would have been expected to come in..

"The thing that's worrisome in Minnesota, Tina Smith. She has not been elected yet. She hasn't had a general election and her name recognition is actually lower than MS Housley again with Karin Housley being well known in the state as the wife of a of a former NFL player. And of course she's, you know, well established in her own right, Indiana. We have Donnelly going against Braun. Donald has been one of these Democrats these kind of like Joe Manchin, but not quite as Joe Manchin. Joe Manchin is Joe mansion trying to protect his own hide in West Virginia difficult to be a democrat in the state where Trump won by forty percentage points. So he's doing what he has to do in his own mind to stay in power. And I would not be surprised if he just ends up switching parties and becomes a Republican. I wouldn't be surprised if that happens. Certainly wouldn't be the first time. I believe Charlie Crist did a similar thing out of Florida. So that's a close race. Again, a race that the Donnelly is the incumbent a race that the dams must hold. Braun is coming in. He's got that tea party support. He's got that Trump support and states like Indiana, you know, I'm telling you, we, we heard if you get a chance, listen to Konya west when he was in the White House today. Listen to him talking about when he puts on the mega hat make America. Great. Again, when he puts on that hat, he feels power. He talks about this. He talks about that. We didn't have a dad. He talks about how he's around feminine energy all day. So he really likes the way that Trump makes him feel masculine just. Things that we know. I understood. Got it. But that doesn't mean that you should fall for it, but it's nice to hear someone say out loud though. It's nice to hear someone comes so this Connie west is very transparent. Yeah, he is, but it's really nice to hear someone like self aware enough to say, I do this because it makes me feel powerful because I'm threatened by the women around me. I need some help to bring my masculinity back. That's I don't have enough confidence in myself to just live a life. Right. You know, just just live your life, you know, in, you know, he's admitting that he doesn't have that, and he needs a red hat to make him feel that. Yes, I understand. And just a brief update them onto the wine now? No. No, through into the aperitif per team at the lodge, rock is drinking Boone's farm for his aperitif and God knows what everyone else is drinking Donald Trump's just drink in DIKO, of course through all this. Yeah, he's a yeah through every single bit of this. He is sober. Think about about that for second. All right now also. So that's that's Indiana Bronco again, that's going to be a doozy in a state like that for a democrat in this era. Now where Trump and his Trumpism this anti Trump, it's dead. Yeah, Trump is is it's the way of the land and it's com- looking now, it's republicanism and it's just been so norm. It's normalized, which again, not normal. Nothing happening is normal. Now don't forget that and times will change. So that's going to be a tough seat for the Dem's to hold. Let's go to Florida. We have Bill Nelson versus former governor, Rick Scott, Rick, Scott, he has, you know, he's got a lot of support lot of name. Recognition, Bill Nelson in this is another one of those really weird races were Rick. Scott is again, sort of running as a change candidate despite the fact he's been a politician for many years, but Bill Nelson has been there. He's another one of these old timers when you listen to them talk. I'm not quite sure if he's relating to the people of Florida quite well enough, Rick. Scott was out there when it came to the one thing about the storm hurricane Michael..

"Wanted to pick your brain and get your perspective on on what that day. And what that vote was like with the protesters with all the interruptions was it as sort of chaotic as it felt watching on TV. Well, certainly the protesters up in the gallery made it chaotic those pretty unfortunate that just screams from from the protesters. I went out was walking that morning and went out amongst the protesters. To be pretty calm. There wasn't that larger group quite honestly, I think the news blown out of proportion chilly during the week. There was all kinds of intimidation inside the Senate buildings you'll screaming at people trying to get on elevators that type of thing. You're pretty unruly crowd. But. You what I really go back to is just the evidence and listening to the testimony. And and one thing that really stood out for me was when Dr Ford was testifying, and she said that you accepted the instant fell. Two weeks have been the worst two weeks of her life. Now. Those last two weeks. Those worst weeks weren't brought to her by Republicans. Right worst, two weeks for caused by democratic operatives who her name, even though she want remain anonymous her attorneys who apparently didn't even tell her. She could've stayed in California been interviewed by bipartisan investigators for the Senate Judiciary committee, but Democrats didn't really want to participate in that. So the Democrats wanted to spectacle, we wanted to show trial. They got it. They couldn't have cared less about Dr Ford. They wanted that spectacle. They got it. That's why Lindsey Graham called after most despicable display despicable parts. Partisan politics. He's ever seen. He's been politics. Very long time. So I'll take him at his word well, and so many people dug their heels in so early into this process that it didn't matter they weren't even listening anymore. And in the best example was Susan Collins. I was genuinely surprised at the. The amount of detail in research that she did to get to where to where she could go and vote in how articulate she was and in displaying that and talking about that in that forty five minutes, and it didn't matter. Nobody listen, nobody that was that didn't you know, those that does on the left those that didn't one cavenaugh they they didn't hear anything. She said they decide all fell on deaf ears because they had already decided in their minds the way they wanted this to go and the truth didn't matter. The main point the the people who decided nearly Democrats Republicans we kept an open mind, we were going to actually listen to the testimony. We're going to look at the FBI background reports. There had been corroborating evidence we want to support the nominee. But there was none. And I'll tell you Susan colleagues weren't surprised at all at how knowledgeable at the integrity. She she showed in deciding to vote for for Brett cabin. She's a really detailed person and say, I don't I don't agree with Susan on a host of issues, but I certainly have always recognized for is incredibly knowledgeable hardworking. And she displayed it silly during that speech. But none of her colleagues were surprised in terms of how did that in people have to understand that took enormous, political, courage and integrity for her to give that speech and and support the nomination because she's under coming. Blistering attack in Maine, and in Washington DC that took a great deal. Courage on a part of Susan to to go ahead and vote for confirmation coming into Saturday's hearing in Saturday's vote, what was your level of confidence? Were you were you pretty sure that you had the votes to confirm or were there. Still some question marks floating out there. Well, the coach revolted nobody really knew for sure. But once Susan gave that speech, and by the way, I was at the White House, and we were doing signing ceremony for the FAA five year. Reauthorization Bill Rex getting you're getting things done in the US that we really are. But we walked in the Oval Office and President Trump said so much present. She's her speech right now. I said, let's go watch it. So we literally left office went into an office right outside there. And we watch all forty three minutes of speech, and the president could not have been more complementary. He just kept saying she's doing great. I mean, look at look at all the time. And he was he could have been more impressed with Susan Collins. And of course, we we all cheered. When she finally announced she was gonna vote for confirmation. So the mystery was pretty well solved that point in time. There was a letter that was making the rounds from from chairman Grassley and towards the end of that letter he had made a demand or request for correspondence between Ford's team of lawyers in any Democrats on the Senate Judiciary committee curious to get your take on. What do you make of that request? Is there is there reason to believe that there was not to use an overused word, but collusion between members of the judiciary committee and forge legal team. It's really the story that ought to be written and investigate in terms of what type of cooperation coordination collusion was there between her attorneys other democratic operatives the democrat outside groups, again Democrats immediately declared Susan Collins pointed out there in an immediate. No, whoever the candidate was again, the resistance movements, very strong. And what I have to say you got an opportunity in Minnesota. Karin Housley the United States Senate in in Wisconsin. We can be like we retire Tammy Baldwin. That's we need to do is as conservative Republicans is people that actually do believe that our legal systems bedrock principle of presumption of innocence. Yeah. We need to get out. And we need to vote we need to be every bit as energize the left there and trying to take away our freedoms destroy that legal system in terms of preserving our liberty and freedom. So I'm just begging people in Minnesota, and Wisconsin, your conservative Republican, if you believe in the rule of law liberty and freedom get out and vote be every bit as energize Barack resistance movement, and the and the right is actually in a position at the moment to and that's not to say that they weren't before. But that is to say that there was a lot more baggage surrounding Trump than there is now, but even from CNN they had an article over the weekend. President Donald Trump's winning streak on Friday, trumpet, celebrated the best jobs data for forty nine years of the unemployment rate dipped to three point seven percent. Offering more proof of a vibrant economy that the president says has been unshackled by his tax reduction program and is cuts to business regulations. I mean, the the those running for office with the Republican party actually have substance that they? Can run on. And now the ability to point at the left didn't go look at how ridiculous the past six weeks was. Are concerned is always been that people become complacent. The biggest take is unbelievably strong economy for granted. -sconsin aren't employment rate is two point nine percent. Now three point seven you want it when I took a econ over at the university of Minnesota four point four five percent. We're below that. You can't find enough people to work for all the jobs that are that are open. So it's unbelievably strong economy, and that was an accident. That's because Republicans under Donald Trump we stopped and regulatory burden. We actually reduced it to a certain extent. We've more competitive tax system. We stop demonizing in punishing success. Between democrats. So again, you see what Democrats do the random mop, the vile threat during act ten here in Wisconsin governor Walker he ought to be reelected by acclamation. For how strongly do not take that. For granted. Don't be complacent the Democrats. They get power. They'll turn that right around. It will be back on the wrong path in Wisconsin. And in and in America. A call. Well, you might take him a call with us. Real quick Senator Johnson. Sure. Jim calling from Wisconsin. Good morning. You're on with Justice, and drew and Senator Ron Johnson. Good morning. Thank you for letting me come on mister Johnson. We really appreciate what you're doing in the Senate. My question to you is is I've become very very active since his cavenaugh thing and tell I mean, I've emailed you several times you responded. Well, if we get more power, let's say the Senate gets more power. Well, we get more into house. Will there be repercussions for any senators or any activists who brought these false allegations? Or did any wrongdoing behind the scenes? That's what we give you guys more power. Well, jim. Standpoint the best thing we can do is expose the left for who. They are in. What's frustrating for dessert is the mainstream media is completely in the tank their part and parcel of that coordinated effort of the left. Now. That's what's so frustrating. You we do have talk radio shows like this. That is why we are so frustrated, but the best thing we can do is expose it. And it's being exposed. It's one of the reasons I think that people like Susan Collins and Jeff flake in the end decided to vote for confirmation. They started getting the, you know, we saw the article about how Leland Kaiser was pressured by her friends, you start taking one goes interconnections between you know, what a very small knit group. These attorneys are for Dr Ford as well. So no, I believe this is a pretty well coordinated effort in the best way we can do as exposed to. But the best the best way to respond to make sure we elect Karin Housley, and that is our best refined. And the way we do that. Jim is you have taught you have to vote. You get your family members vote. Your friends your neighbors. Everybody who. Values liberty and freedom and due process in the presumption innocent have got to get out. And you gotta make their wishes known at the ballot box in four short weeks. Yeah, I agree with you one hundred percent. I look at this very much like I look at you know, sort of the free market sort of approach to to politics, I would like to see the bad behavior by the Democrats be punished at the electoral box punished on election day punished by the electorate, and I would like to see the Republicans get rewarded for the way that they've handled this, and I think that is the best way to handle this. And I I agree with you. One hundred percent Senator Ron Johnson. Really? Appreciate your time this morning. Thanks for joining us. Yeah. Absolutely. Take care. So we have just enough time before we wrap the show up this morning. I think drew that. It's important that we take a moment. And we examined and read some incredible thoughts from Twitter's blue check.

"The Goliath to speak to Karin Housley. I don't normally speak the candidates. But sometimes it is there's a race of such to me moral significance and political significance that I do. Karin Housley is the Republican candidate for governor. Excuse me for Senator sorry. I this wishful thinking going on in my mind. I wish you were candidate for both. Actually, can you run for two things many way for Senator stranger things have been done. Certainly true Senator, of course in Minnesota. And. Tell me what. I have so much to ask you, I've I've been to Minnesota so many times I love the state I live in a state of confusion. I understand California where I live. I don't understand Minnesota Minnesotans are known for niceness. Then they vote for a mean party. Right, right. We Minnesotans are really really nice people. And they like they like balance, and they like people to treat others with respect. And we are we are a strange state where we cross ballot vote. We don't vote. We don't stay in our lane. We we cross over the democrat Republican, and we like to vote for big names here we've had Jesse Ventura as governor live Al Franken as a US Senator. So and and even in the same year, they voted the most conservative US Senator rod grams at the same time, they voted the most liberal Senator in Paul Wellstone. So we do we we vote on some some different things are different from from all across the country that I I I think I feel even worse for you and California dentist or you should. I mean, you have you ever real chance? Now your opponent is campaigning with Keith Ellison. Keith Ellison is is is as far left as we have in American politics and Keith Ellison, of course, has serious charges against them. With regard to abusive a woman, and I'm not saying, they're true. I'm not saying they're not true. But they're they're they're not from high school. They're not one incident. How does all that play out? Right. I'm and I'm running actually for the hashtag me to Al Franken. See? So there is a lot of responsibility in this Seton who represents Minnesota in the United States Senate, and and to treat everybody equally when there is a charge of sexual harassment sexual abuse domestic abuse. And then keenest miss my opponent is showing the complete hypocrisy of herself and the democrat because the Democrats aren't interested in speaking out on sexual assault or harassment when it comes to their own party and Tina Smith is campaigning around the state with Keith Ellison, and she has said because keep categorically denied these accusations. Then Keith Ellison therefore is innocent yet when it comes to Brett taverna and the unsubstantiated allegations against a judge Cavanaugh she and he swore under oath that. He didn't do it. She's calling for a full FBI investigation. Also said that cavenaugh has committed sexual assault. She said that in the video, and and whatever happened to being innocent before proven guilty. It's now all of a sudden that the proof is on those that are accused, and that's it. That's the sad road that the Democrats have gone down. And it's going to discourage a lot of people from running for office and for voting for them because this is one issue that has that has popped up that has really got Republicans and independents extremely extremely angry at the hypocrisy, and the double standard that the Democrats are are showing right now. Okay. So that's the double standard issue. What about the issue? I have to believe that most Minnesotans and Americans who are anti Cavanaugh on the grounds of sexual assault. Not forgetting their against them because they would be against any Republican nominee to the supreme court. Don't they have husbands brothers fathers sons, whom they love. I mean, why is? All the identification vis-a-vis the alleged victim. I was just talking to a group of hockey, mom the other day. And that's exactly what they were saying is is they fear for their husbands and their sons and their fathers that anybody can make an accusation, and it becomes the you're the land in a front page headlines in there are are guilty by public accusation and not having a fair hearing and not having a any sort of private process to go through. And and the Democrats will do anything they can to have an issue come up and attack Republicans and the the regular person out there. Dennis. I'm telling you is absolutely appalled that something like this comes up and can be their son or their brother or their father. And it's it's so deeply saddening that this is the road that they've gone down show is is the hill. You have to climb that Minnesota is simply now more or less. Liberal slash left. No, no, absolutely. The hill. The Tina Smith has to climb is she's such a metro area liberal elite that this is not the DFL party democrat farm labor here and then a soda that of my mother and father's area era. It was mostly democrat back in the day. And it has the democrat party has left the democrat in the last ten years, and it has become the far left extreme liberal socialist party of Minneapolis and Saint Paul in. That is not who Minnesota Democrats are. So they are leaving the party in the eighth district up on the iron range, which has historically always voted democrat. We're going to have a Republican congressman up there down in southern Minnesota always voted democrat. That's going to be Republican. So Minnesota is not as democrat as it used to be. And we we are seeing a real red wave here because they've gone so far to the left, and they've left the people, and that's not who we are here in Minnesota. I just want to tell you what I say that every Republican candidate. For Senate for house governor that you're not only running. I mean, this is unsolicited advice. Am I humbly acknowledge that fact? Every Republican is not only running against their opponent. They're running against the destructive left wing party as you just noted and I salute you for doing that. I think people after wonder stand as nice as an and I don't know your opponent. But as nice as any democrat individually might be they represent a destructive force in America, the Democratic Party. They really do. And it, and it is a responsibility US Republicans to make sure that the people know what that we really are the party of education and health care and freedom, and they are the party of obstruction. And that's exactly what my opponent Tina Smith. Has been doing. She's only been in office for nine months and every single turn. She obstructing and blocking good things happening here. One judge Cavanaugh to she medicine Housley. Forgive me. We gotta take a break. I know you have to go and.

Thank, you welcome thank you for being out here well thank you it's great to be here I my only disappointment is. That, I didn't. Quite enough time to get, my, mini doughnuts before I came to the porch fortunately they're convenient Right. Around, the corner Really sorry well I just, finished a, foot long hot dogs so good for. A, little while here hey let's talk about this news. From over the weekend I know that you know a short time so far serving in the Senate and you maybe not a lot of time to cross paths with, the the, great Senator John McCain but here are some of your thoughts of what you about his. His, life and legacy well one of my great regrets is that I was coming into the Senate just as Senator McCain was no longer in the on the floor. Of the Senate chamber so I've never been on the floor of the Senate chamber with Senator McCain I think so many of us. Around the country have been thinking about his service he really hit him is is public service his entire life dedicated to serving this country I think also John's commitment to working, with people across party lines is so clear and it's I'm noticing wonder if you're thinking. About, this too however the public service celebrating his life on Friday both President Bush and President Obama are going to be speaking the two men who defeated him when. He ran for president yet his respect for them and their respect for him Caused them to. Be the ones that his, family wanted to, be president during that special day I know. That they both knew and had a good deal of respect for him as well, let's talk, about a couple of other things for folks who. Might, not be real clear on this share with, everybody here how your path to the Senate came about well I was serving as Lieutenant governor with Mark Dayton I had, run with Mark in one thousand nine hundred nineteen fourteen Great by the way Only one hundred. Sixty nine sixty I was legitimate. Governor elected in two thousand fourteen and then when Senator Franken made the difficult decision, to step down from. The Senate Mark Dayton appointed me so I have now been in the Senate for about nine months About nine months and of course I'll be on. The ballot in November and then this is a. Special election and if I win in November then I'll the seat will be on, the ballot again in. Twenty twenty right because you're basically filling in the filling the void Yeah Term so let's talk about this another shooting over the, weekend this one in. Jacksonville Again you know guns. And guns, are going to become, part of the talk share your thoughts on that you. Know my views on this I think are pretty similar to a lot of Minnesotans I believe that we can have commonsense reforms to our gun laws that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. And also protect our second amendment rights and a lotta Minnesotans feel the same way I think almost ninety percent of Minnesota's believed that. We ought to have background checks regardless of where you, buy a gun for example so if. You buy a gun at Dick's, sporting goods you do a simple background check yet if you. Buy a. Gun online you don't need to do the same. Kind of background check that doesn't that's not common sense to a lot. Of Minnesotans that's the kind of thing that I think that we could be doing and I also want to say that one of the. Biggest problems we have in this country is the epidemic of of mental health challenges and and most. One of the most dangerous things that can happen is. For a gun today Get into the hands of somebody who's having a. Mental health. Crisis because of suicide those are the kinds of. Public health issues that I think we ought to be doing a lot. More looking at and really research onto you know something that's going to come into play I think a lot we'll be immigration I know. You have you had a debate scheduled but you had to cancel because you were doing Washington Been rescheduled. Yet well actually I'm I we were. Able to reschedule it but I don't think that that time worked out. For my opponent and so we you know we wanted to do a debate here at the, state fair and I'm sorry that it didn't work, out and we're, very interested in debating and I think we're hoping to get rescheduled sometime soon but we'll know that and we'll. Pass that along when that occurs but you know something that that occurred I think the day of the discovery of Molly Tibbets body and Iowa it raised immigration questions because of the accused being here. Illegally the company that hired him said we didn't know that we had lied or falsified but it actually I think your opponent just basically, that day, blamed Liberal Democrats for the death of. Molly Tibbets respond to. That I think.
