A highlight from Growing Unease: Current Administrations Approach to Security and Travel with David Bellavia
"What do you think they're doing with cash, right? What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? Yeah. What do you, it's, this is a state sponsor of terrorism. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens. America's comeback now. starts right Welcome back Financial Guys podcast. Mike Speraza in studio live today with a guest in the studio. I haven't had this in a long time. Staff Sergeant medal of honor recipient David Bellavia joining me for about a half hour today. David, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. Absolutely. So I'm going to stick based on your background. I'm going to stick with a lot of military stuff today and I want to start, we'll go all the way back to the beginning of the Joe Biden presidency. The Afghanistan withdrawal, in my opinion, did not go very smoothly. I'm sure many people listening agree. What were your overall thoughts of that withdrawal and how it actually ended up happening? I know we lost, you know, sadly lost 13 soldiers in that, in that withdrawal. People say we went off the wrong air base. People say that we shouldn't have gone out in the middle of the summer. There was a lot of different things there. What were your overall thoughts on that? I think it's like the worst day in American history since Market Garden. Just absolutely. And the reason why it was so difficult was it was totally unnecessary. So let's rewind to the Obama trade, Bull Bergdahl and the three first round draft picks. They get Marshall, they get MacArthur and they get Patton that end up the resurgence of the Taliban. These men not just go back to the enemy, they go back to the battlefield. They're in power when the government falls. You have misinformation coming from the White House that the president of Afghanistan is leaving with billions of dollars on his plane, which wasn't true. And then you leave the equipment, the cash. There's no recovery. We're getting reports of sales of American equipment left in Afghanistan in Southeast Asia. We're moving material across the globe. Our children will fight and pay and have to atone for these miscalculations. Let's talk about that. You being in the military and you knowing that area too, why did they just find it the easiest way out to just say, you know, just leave that billion dollar billions of dollars of equipment there and not think, again, if it was me and I'm speaking that someone that's never been in the military, but if it's me and I'm the president, I'm thinking, OK, I don't want to leave all our weaponry there. I don't want to lose any of my men. Number two. And number three, I want to make sure that everybody knows when and how we're getting out of there. And it just felt like poof. One day they said we're getting out of here. Well, it's because the military didn't make any of those decisions. I mean, look, Millie, it can criticize him. You can criticize Secretary of Defense worthy of criticism. However, none of these individuals are making decisions. This is about NGOs on the ground. This is about the State Department. So you've got Bagram Air Base, the equivalent of JFK. You've got Karzai International Airport, the equivalent of Teterboro. Right. Why would you ever do an exfil out of Karzai International Airport? It makes absolutely no sense. It's tactically unsound. But and then you've got all the ISIS -K. We retaliate from the murder of 13 of our bravest and we drop a bomb on a guy delivering water. He's on our payroll and we kill children on that. Then we take out Borat on a tuk tuk driving around like that wasn't even really what was happening. It's just a den of lies. And Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan, all the heroes that brought us, you know, the Bergdahl deal, the Iran nuke deal. This is these. They the State Department is running all foreign policy, including what the DOD used to run. Well, that's I was going to say. I mean, I know Biden's the president, but do you blame him at all or is it everybody underneath him that, you know, maybe was giving him bad information? And again, some of these decisions, David, is Biden even involved in some of these decisions? Like, I don't even know anymore. Is he around? Is he paying attention to anything going on? Well, I mean, just from the press conferences, it was apparent he didn't know what was going on. And the great irony is that they actually were predicting that Ukraine was going to be invaded and, you know, no one believed them. So it's like you can't influence your friends. The allies don't trust you. The enemy doesn't respect you. You know, I mean, you've got Ben Rhodes is really proud of this State Department. Susan Rice loves what they're doing. But, you know, again, Americans died. And, you know, and what is the perfect culmination of the adventure in Afghanistan? Looking at your watch at Dover Air Base when bodies are coming home. I mean, nothing could you couldn't ask for a just it's it's a debacle. Yeah. And it's sad that that's that's the leader of our country there. Let's move in. You brought up the Ukraine there. So the Russia Ukraine conflict will get to Zelensky in a minute. He is as we speak in New York City right now. But so Trump's in office. We don't see many of these conflicts or any conflicts actually started under his watch. And then we have the Biden administration come in. And a year later, we have Russia invading Ukraine. Why did this happen and why? Why the timing of February of 2022? So let's go back to when we were fighting ISIS. Trump engaged and destroyed estimated some say 300 members of Wagner forces. But those were Russian nationals. We engaged. We destroyed them. What was the response from Putin? Nothing at all. So what do people in that section of the world, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, what do they respect? They respect power. They respect authority. You're not going to get any respect if you don't engage the enemy when they present themselves. I don't understand the calculus of again, I'm trying hard to figure it out. I don't get it. I don't. You know, Romania and Hungary and Poland, you're letting them unilaterally decide whether or not they want to send reinforcements into Ukraine. That's an act of war. If NATO members engage the enemy, all of NATO is engaged against the enemy. Poland doesn't unilaterally make that decision. Hungary and Romania don't unilaterally make that decision. We can't even articulate what the mission is. And if you look, go to the Institute for the Study of War, there's a plug for them. Check out their overlay from when the battle started, when the war started with Russia. And tell me what success this offensive in Ukraine has produced. I mean, let me ask this question, because I get confused. The answer is nothing. I asked this on Twitter, X, whatever it's called, all the time. What is the end game and how do we get there? Because all I see the answer is, hey, just blank checks. Hey, just write a check. Hey, here's a billion. Hey, here's 20 billion. Hey, here's another 10 billion. I don't actually see a look. I mean, like anything, right? If I write a business plan of what I want to do in 2024, my goal is X. I write down my steps to get X. I don't just write down X and say it's going to happen. I don't really know. And then the answer always is, well, we have to fight. We have to back Ukraine. Okay. But when does that end? Because the Afghanistan war and the war in Iraq lasted 20 years plus, right? And was there a real end to it? I don't know. That's where it gets frustrating for me, Dave, where I'm like, how do we know what the end game is? Do you win or lose? When does that happen? I don't know. I don't know. At least you're thinking about it. And I have fear that our leaders aren't, and that's the problem. So here's what this comes out. You're going to get a negotiated settlement out of Ukraine, right? But you talked about the billions of dollars that we're spending and giving to Ukraine as a blank check. First of all, Zelensky visited Ukrainian soldiers in the United States. Did you know that there were wounded Ukrainian soldiers in the United States? I did not know that. Well, today he visited them. So what's happening there? So that's a cost that no one is putting on the ledger. So now let's look at the blank check that Ukraine is getting. And by the way, I'm pro Ukraine. I want to fight communists all day and night. So let's punch Putin hard in the face. However, you're giving them a blank check and you're giving them munitions. Now here's the problem. We have to replace those munitions. Those munitions were purchased for 20 year global war and terror. And let's be honest, inflation is involved. So what you purchased for $10 is now $17. So you're not just giving them the money. You're giving them the equipment and the munitions that you have to replace yourself at the value of what is valued today. We haven't scratched the surface for the amount of money. CBO absent at the wheel. No one is tracking this. 2024 can't get here fast enough. How does this work, though, when you talk about some of these NATO nations coming together and making decisions, but us not just giving weaponry, giving everything money, whatever we're giving there? Is that not an act of war, too, though, David, at some point? We're continuing to fund Ukraine continuing the war in Ukraine. I mean, that to me seems like we're backing a war. Well, I mean, by the letter of the law and NATO charter, it's not. But here's the problem. It's schizophrenic because we were told that what was an offensive weapon was going to mitigate, you know, that wasn't going to help peace at all. So we went from, I don't know if they should get tracked vehicles to I'm not sure an artillery piece is what they need to high Mars rockets being launched. And let's be honest. I mean, the Ukrainians are I mean, the payload that they're going through, what you would have to have cataclysmic casualty numbers to be able to to the spandex that they're doing on the ground that they need to replace Patriot. If you're going through thirty five Patriot to, you know, missiles, I would expect to at least the C 20 makes that are shot down. They're using them for air artillery. They're using there for indirect fire. I don't know what they're doing, but this is going to end with Don Boss going to Russia. This is going to end with that land chain that Putin wanted through Crimea. And again, our friends in NATO, what are they even doing for Ukraine? What? Look, if you they said that Trump wanted to kill NATO, Biden did it. Right. Biden did it. And now Germany. And so Putin was selling oil at thirty dollars a barrel. What's it at ninety six? Yeah. He's making more money than he did before. And he's financing a war and killing innocent people. You mentioned before, too, and I think this is a good point. Everybody on the left and I'll say the media, the establishment, whoever you want to say, says that if you don't agree with the war in Ukraine, you're like pro Putin. Right. And that's just the most outrageous thing in the world, because I agree with you. I feel for the people of Ukraine. I don't want this for them. I don't want this for innocent people. However, at some point, the world's every every one of the world's problems can't be America's problem when we have a border crisis. And then I think they said yesterday ten thousand people came across. They got, I think, eight thousand of the ten thousand. But you see the numbers day over day. It's a problem. We have crime that's rampant. We have overdoses that are at record numbers. We have we have suicides at record numbers. At some point, we have to maybe just think about ourselves and not everybody else, because if we fall, sadly, I think the world falls at that point. Amen. The thing that I would add is I love the way the Ukraine refugee has been crowbarred into the migrant crisis in the United States. New York leaders from the city to all over Kathy Hochul, the governor of the state of New York, mentioning that, you know, like the Ukrainians in Poland, the the Polish have no intention to keep Ukrainians forever. That's a temporary you know, they're leaving a conflict to return to their country after the conflict is over. Again, this is just we're we're putting a round peg into a square hole and just hammering it away. But but there's no the media. There's you're our destroying military. I go to parents all the time around this country and ask them to give us their sons and daughters to join the military. And the one thing they bring up is Afghanistan. It's not about anything. It's Afghanistan. How are you going to assure us that you're going to maintain your commitment to our son and daughter when you betrayed us in Afghanistan that has lasting effects? And there's not a I'm trying to find a segment of our of our of our nation that's functioning. I don't know what it is. I saw in Chicago, they're going to have municipally owned grocery stores. Maybe that will figure it out there. Yeah, yeah, it's good. Real quick, do you think and we'll finish up on this topic, but do you think that they will we will ever have boots in the ground on Ukraine? I mean, I hope not, because I just don't know what the I mean, look at I'm I'm we're getting ready for China. We're trying to revolutionize everything. I don't know what the what the plan is. I mean, again, if you want to put a base in Ukraine, and you want to make that a sustainment operation going forward, that I here's the point. I don't understand what the inactive ready reserve call up was for. Why are you bringing those troops in the non combat support? Why are they going to Ukraine? What are you building infrastructure there? Here's what I do know. We're talking a minimum of $11 trillion to build Ukraine back. That is cataclysmic amounts of money. There isn't water, electricity, internet, you know, you want to help Ukraine. You're going to Russia is not paying for that if you negotiate a settlement. So I don't know what the plan is. But I hope we never see boots on the ground. I could guess what the plan is. I won't I won't say for sure. But I could guess that we'll be paying a chunk of that. And I do have one last one. So I did interview Colonel Douglas McGregor a few months back. And he talked about he's a real optimist. But he is really very, very bullish on Ukraine. Yes, very, very optimistic. I'm dropping some all over the place. But he brought up some staggering numbers, though. And even if they're half true, it's a problem. The amount of casualties and wounded soldiers on the Ukrainian side that we're not hearing about the media. I don't know if you agree with some of those numbers or not. But he's saying, I mean, it's people are acting as if this is an even war right now. And it's not even close. First of all, McGregor's a stud. I mean, he's an absolute, you know, that we're glad he's on our side. He's a military mind. I don't know if those numbers are accurate. I could tell you they're juxtaposed to almost everything we're hearing from every institution that we have, including a lot of our intel from Germany and England. But again, I don't know what to believe. So when you don't have when you don't have transparency, when you're not holding regular press conferences, when your Pentagon spokesman is now working in the White House and now you're getting a triple spin. I mean, the U .S. Open double backspin. You've gotten so many spins on the narrative. I don't know what to believe. But if he is even close to what is a segment of truth, you know, then look, Ukraine needs an investigation. There's a lot of investigations. We've got to start on Afghanistan. We were promised that by Speaker McCarthy. We need a hot wash on Afghanistan. And then we need to go to what who is oversighting the money that's going to Ukraine. And what have we got for our return on investment? Yeah, I'm not asking for much. Really, all I'm asking for in this conflict is can we just talk about what the end game is? And to your point, can we get an accounting of where the money's going and what's being spent in a real accounting of it? The Iran deal that just happened last week. First off, the fact that that was negotiated and completed on 11th September to me is just the ultimate slap in the face. But you again, you know more about this than I do. We do a five for five trade. OK, I'm going to use sports analogies. We trade five for five. And then we also approved of six billion dollars that apparently wasn't ours, but it was in a fund that now they can release to Iran. How are we winning on that one? Well, first of all, I was hoping that at least it was a digital transfer. The fact that it went as euros in cash through Qatar. And OK, so what happens the 24 hours after that deal is made? We're now getting issues in the West Bank. We're now hearing about issues in Yemen. We've now got Hezbollah that's reinforced. I mean, look, what do you think they're doing with cash? Right. What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? What do you it's this is a state sponsor of terrorism. They haven't changed. By the way, their president is now in New York City addressing the United Nations. This guy's killed 6500 of his own people. He admits to it. He killed the students that revolted and wanted democracy when we did nothing. He killed 5000 of his citizens in 1988. He's killed over 300 Americans. There's no accountability whatsoever. I don't understand what it is about Jake Sullivan and Tony Blinken that believe that Iran is a partner. All you've done 10 years ago, they were refining 10 percent of their oil. And now they're a force. Now they're working with Maduro in Venezuela, and they're a huge part of their members of of the international community. They're in good standing there. I don't get it. Does anyone believe that the Iran nuke deal? Look, we got hit with cruise missiles under Trump in Iraq. How did they have those cruise missiles? Those cruise missiles were illegal under the Obama nuke deal. So how are you refurbishing missiles in two years? Do we believe that their centrifuges have stopped? That they won't have a program if they don't have one already? No, I mean, I guess my question, David, is how I mean, I know that you pay a lot of attention to this stuff, but how do people like in the media not ask these questions? Right. I mean, these are legitimate. I mean, we just traded to I put this on my notes here. This is on the heels of trading a WNBA basketball player for the Merchant of Death like six months ago. Right. I mean, and again, I'm glad Americans are coming back to America. I don't want to sound pessimistic on that. That's great news. But we also I mean, this this stuff just seems like I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. It warrants questions, but nobody seems to care. I'm in the world that if you take hostages, we take hostages. You want to exchange people? We'll exchange people. You know, we definitely have the partners in the area to do that. For whatever reason, this administration, they're they're they're contrarians. They're contrarians to you know, they claim Bush and Cheney are their best friends, yet they just go 180 degrees from that doctrine. I don't know what the Biden doctrine is. I don't know what Bidenonomics is either, but I could tell you that they believe that Iran is a partner. Now, here's another thing. Our envoy to Iran not only is no longer the envoy, he doesn't have a security clearance. Does anyone curious at The New York Times as to what happened to the lead negotiator in Iran that is escorted off a bus, taken into American custody, given a job at Yale or Princeton or wherever he's working now? I've never heard of a person going from top secret classified negotiations to no clearance whatsoever and in the custody of American intelligence community. No one cares. No one cares at all. It's fascinating. And again, for me, I mean, these are big decisions that we're making. And correct me if I'm wrong, but it used to be, you know, maybe we did a two for five deal and then we made the six billion. Now we're like, we're giving stuff away and we're on the losing end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but America was never, you know, America losing. It was always America winning, right? America getting the best of deals. At least McDonald's has a five for five. We didn't even get that. You know what this does though? Honest to God, if you're thinking about traveling overseas, things go sideways, cartel, South America, Mexico, wherever you're going, you have a price in your head now. No one in their right mind is going to bring you back whether it's Haiti or wherever you are, you're worth $1 .25 billion. And thugs and scumbags are going to take advantage of that. I mean, that's a great point too. Do you think about leaving the country? I don't know anymore. That's a little bit concerning. I don't care where you're going, right? That's concerning. This one I just had to bring up because it happened two days ago or yesterday. How do we lose a plane? And I heard that's like a third one in the last six weeks that something like this has happened. How are we losing $80 million planes? Well, they're not $80 million anymore because they've got a new engine and all this other stuff. Look, the F -35 program is a complete disaster. You want to talk about why our allies think we're crazy. We sold them a plane. This program has been around since the early 90s and we've got nothing on return for it. So basically two planes are flying in a buddy team. They're doing training and a guy punches out. We don't even know why he punched out, but that plane could have easily hit a building. It didn't, thank God. But the wingman didn't follow where his buddy went. So what is he doing? He just kind of went on and did his own thing. And now the Marine Corps put a Facebook post like a dog is missing. We're expecting the Ukrainian farmers to carry the F -35 out with their tractors. I don't know what the point of it's wild. Look, stop embarrassing us. Just stop humiliating us. That's all I'm asking. Just be the army and the Marine Corps that we know our men and women are capable of being. Get out of their way. This gender garbage, this social experiment nonsense, stop humiliating our military. That's all I ask. Why can we not get the... I mean, I know why we can't get the answer, but I'm asking this to you. But why can't we, at a press conference at the White House, why can't we say, I want to talk to the guy that was in the other plane, or you can tell us the transcript of what happened when that happened. Talk to the guy who jumped out of the plane. Why did you do that? And again, I'm not trying to put our military on the spot, but these are kind of big questions to ask, right? I mean, if I do something in my business, I have to go face the music on that. Why doesn't everybody have to face music for their decisions or why things are happening? I think it's kind of important. Well, you don't want to talk to generals because they're going to tell you the truth and they won't be generals anymore. True. And you don't want to talk to enlisted people. Because look, I mean, let's be honest. How many people are... Is this a merit -based military anymore? Do we have a meritocracy? Are we promoting people based on pronouns? Go figure. When we're putting politics above military strength, accidents happen. We don't know the facts, but the fact that nobody cares about getting to the bottom of it, the day of the Pentagon paper reporters are gone. Yep. Yep. Let's just talk about the 2024 race quick, and then we will wrap up for today. So your thoughts on the Republican primary so far, I'll stay away from the Democratic side till the very end, but your thoughts on, you know, there's obviously Trump who is now in a, has a huge lead. Ron DeSantis seems to be crumbling underneath himself. Vivek Ramaswamy has jumped up in the polls. Nikki Haley's there. Tim Scott's there. A few others that probably aren't going to get a lot of votes. Chris Christie's the anti -Trump candidate. Mike Pence is, I don't know what Mike Pence is. I'm not really sure. Your thoughts about the whole field so far? I mean, look, it's impressive. They've got a deep bench. There's a lot of diversity. I, you know, none of it matters. Trump is the guy. The more you indict him, the more you empower him. You know, I'd like him to work on his communications a little bit better. You know, but if Trump is Trump, Trump is a Frankenstein monster of Barack Obama. As long as you have that faction, you're going to get, you know, Trump is going to be empowered. I just don't want to see Governor Noem anywhere near the White House. And I, if he's going to pick a running mate, you know, it's hard to find an ally here, you know. But it would be nice to find a governor. I don't want to take anyone from the Senate. I don't want to take anyone from the House with the margins that tight. But I mean, the idea that Governor Noem is being floated right now. I mean, I'd rather take North Dakota. Yeah. A little sled there. You know, it's funny you mentioned that because I saw a lot of that this weekend. I mean, can we just, for lack of a better term, keep it in our pants for about a year and then do what you got to do? It really is. I mean, every time you turn, somebody's doing something idiotic, whether it's Boebert. And again, I say this, David, a lot of people know who you are. A lot more know who you are than they'll ever know who I am. But when you go out in public into a movie theater like that, and I'm going to Boebert, not Noem for a second, you're, you're extremely well known. I don't care if it's dark or if it's as light as it is in the studio right now. What are you thinking? I, you know, she's, she's, she's an embarrassment. She is. She's bad, too. Who would have thought that Marjorie Taylor Greene would have been the, the oasis of the Maryland? I mean, seriously, I, again, you're, you're in Congress every day. You're out in public, you're on the job. You know, at least she wasn't wearing a hoodie, you know, that's all in shorts. She was at least dressed for the occasion, but I, it was, it's wildly embarrassing. Vaping, singing, whatever you're doing. Getting groped. Yes. Who is your VP candidate then? Because I think, you know, you have names thrown around. There's, there's, the vague has been thrown around in there. You know, Byron Donald's has been thrown around in there. Carrie Lake has. I don't know. I love Carrie Lake. I just don't know that Trump needs to go with somebody so divisive there. I think he's got to go with somebody that's, that's firm in their beliefs, but also not maybe going to turn off half the country. Well, you know, it's, it's impossible. One of the, one of the problems with making Trump, you know, the, the enemy of the state that the left has done is that you've really made it difficult for him to even put a cabinet together. You know, I mean, what are you going to do with it? You've got a lot of loyalists out there. You know, the vague is, is I think maybe the most intelligent dynamic candidate we've ever seen run for president, but experience does matter. But you know, I love the way he thinks. I love the movement. I don't know if he would even take the job to be honest with it. I don't think he needs it. But you look at a Tim Scott, I think Tim Scott is, you know, there's a whole lot to his message and I think he's, he's got the experience in the Senate, but honestly, you could literally take the Clint Eastwood chair and, and throw it in there as vice president. I'm going with that because this, this from top to bottom, we have to have seismic change in 24. Do you think he would ever choose Kristi Noem at this point with all that now? Yeah, no one knew Mike Pence was a, was a 24 hour story and then he was the vice president candidate. So who knows? I mean, a lot can happen between now and then, but I just, I don't need, you know, let's just pick people on their merit. Let's pick people that are ready to be the president. Imagine this, imagine picking a vice president that can lead the country. If something happens to a 75 year old president, you know, like Kamala Harris. Yeah. Someone like that.

There's strong economic reports earlier this morning reviving speculation that the Fed is going to really engineer a soft landing, even if it keeps interest rates higher for longer. We're going to have more on that with Abigail Doolittle and Michael McKee in just a few minutes. And then we got a big guest today. I'm so excited. You really are.

Liz Cheney Speaks on the Threat of Donald Trump
What Do 5 Living, Democrat Presidents Have in Common?
"And Donald Trump the is only living president whose ancestors never owned slaves. Liz Cheney's ancestors owned slaves, did you know that Mr. Producer? Nancy Mace's owned slaves, ancestors did you know that? Mitch McConnell's ancestors owned slaves? There's others. Some people we like, but I'm dealing with the ones I can't stand. Oh yes, a whole hodgepodge, but a lot of Democrats, isn't that amazing? Can you imagine? Republicans too, but mostly Democrats. There are six living presidents, including Joe Biden, Mr. Producer. Six living presidents, including Joe Biden. Five of their ancestors owned slaves, one of them didn't. Only Trump's ancestors did not own slaves. Isn't that amazing? So I thought I'd point that out, let's see here, I notice a lot of the rhinos, their ancestors owned slaves. Looks like Andy Biggs' ancestors owned slaves, nothing against There's usual. too many to name, but this was put out by Reuters. Let me see something here. Two Supreme Court justices, ancestors owned slaves, Barrett Gorsuch, and and of course we don't hold that against them, they didn't

Corrupt Media Strikes Again: Editing Donald Trump, Blocking Rep. Comer
"Of course, it's a lie that Trump invited a mob to go storm the capitol, I had an hour long conversation with the never trumper yesterday who went down the same road as Liz Cheney. I said, why do you suppose the media always always edited out what Trump said on January 6th? Were he encouraged people to peacefully protest? Why do they never include that in the audio clips they play from what he said at the podium? Because they're corrupt. Because they're corrupt. The media is corrupt. They are filthy. You want to know how corrupt I know Jim and Jacksonville here wants to talk about the corrupt media. Hey Jim, you want to know how bad the today's news media is. Can I start, do you mind? Go ahead. Today, the House oversight committee's chairman flanked by other members of the committee, James comer, made the big announcement of the millions of dollars that apparently have been uncovered that was funneled to the Biden family. 9 members of the family getting rich off of China, Romania, other countries. While Biden was vice president, CNN and MSNBC didn't cover the press conference. The only person that the only network that covered it was Fox News and apparently newsmax. CNN, MSNBC, blacked it out. It was a blackout. They won't touch it. Hey, Jim, that's how corrupt today's news media is.
Tamale Eating Mishap That Defined a Presidential Campaign
"I told my wife last night Richard as I was preparing for this. They said, the funniest story in here, I don't know if I'll tell it, but I'll tell it now. I don't know how to eat it tamale either. Because I'm from Ohio. We don't have tamales in Ohio. So tell that story again. I think I'd forgotten it. And it's hilarious. Well, first of all, there was a mistake. I mean, Ford sort of realized, remember, there's a Panama Canal 3D times. Reagan was really riding a crest in Texas was made for Reagan was a democratic crossover state so all the wallets voters had the option of voting for Reagan. And stupid Spencer said biggest mistake you ever made, the important of like $300,000. Into a Texas primary. Well, it was also, this is classic Ford on the eve of the Texas primary. He sent Henry Kissinger to Africa. To announce a 180° change in American policy toward Africa, no more support for white minority governments, beginning in Rhodesia. And basically sending a message to South Africa. It basically the days of our part time, our number. The problem is this may be a great policy and maybe do policy, but it's not going to win your votes. It takes us Republican primary. And he was warned by Jim baker by Dick Cheney and everyone else. Typical and very 40 went ahead. He goes down there to campaign. George W. Bush told the story the famous tamale incident where. Hey, he was from Michigan. He didn't know about tamales. So he takes the shot off and he tries to eat it. And of course, the media even then, let's face it. That incident, which of course was a picture, got more attention than anything else in his campaign. It defined him in a way. And it played into the notion. This is a nice guy. Good old Jerry, but is he quite up to the job? And that was the thing he had to deal with almost more than anything else. But you
'Just the News' Founder John Solomon Describes His Journey
"We go deeper into the deep state for those who are unfamiliar with your background, I was so delighted I was on a Twitter spaces tonight ago just before the president was set to make his appearance and I mentioned your name with regards to that story that we discussed on my show and I was in a Twitter space of about 8000 people and the immediate reaction from the other speakers was ah yes, John Solomon a name you can trust. Tell us, tell us about who John Solomon, how did you get to be the head of your own media empire? What jobs have you done in the past? Where have you worked and tell us why? Why are you so moved to create your own media entity? Yeah, listen, I grew up as a traditional reporter. I still believe that journalism can be a noble profession if you focus on the facts and not the outcomes, right? You're not trying to create outcomes, you're trying to allow the American people to make up their own mind and over the last 20 years as I work first at The Associated Press. I started at UPI as a 17 year old reporter at an age 19. I got hired by The Associated Press. I put a two decades in at The Associated Press, was hired by The Washington Post to be their lead national investigative reporter, got to work with amazing people like Bob Woodward and others who, you know, when you're growing up as a journalist, so is your idols, your icons. After that, I will eventually landed at the hill where I did a lot of the Hunter Biden reporting. And I stayed in the establishment media for most of the first 30 years of my career. But I saw a really scary thing going on. And I think it started maybe in the summer of 2007, I was in The Washington Post newsroom. The scooter Libby verdict came down scooter Libby had been the chief of staff to Janie Dick Cheney was a very reviled person in liberal and quite frankly media circles today. He's a little bit more champion because of his daughter's opposition to Donald Trump, but he was hated by the media back then. And when the verdict of guilty was announced against scooter Libby, half or more of the newsroom of The Washington Post erupted in cheers and I thought, wow, that it felt like a violation of the newsroom had always been for me, particularly at the AP, a sanctuary where political opinions were left at the door. When you came into the newsroom, you didn't have biases, you didn't have political opinions. You came in with facts and you left with facts and you tried not to change anyone's mind.
Vivek Ramaswamy: Everyone Should Condemn the Indictment Against Trump
"Listen we know you're running for president but I have to say I really appreciated from the start You're forceful to condemnation of everything that's going on with Donald Trump and this growing police state we live in I happen to agree with you that primaries are a great thing for fake I have no issue whatsoever but you jumping in I'm a friend of Donald Trump been a supporter for a while but I think iron sharpens iron But I appreciate that you have been able to put that aside and say listen this is bigger than Donald Trump or even my campaign We got to handle this right now Exactly And you know what I'm running to unify the country but you know what could unify this country more is if the president of the United States now came out and condemned this politically motivated persecution through prosecution And you know what This is not a left wing or right wing issue Dan I'll tell you this In the Bush Cheney years imagine if they had said they wanted to arrest John Kerry while he was running on a technical campaign finance violation Imagine if Trump said that he wanted to have Biden arrested by a Republican state level prosecutor over a technical campaign finance violation ahead of the election I would be condemning that too but those things didn't happen this one did And I don't care whether it may be politically convenient for many people in this race including in the Republican primary If Donald Trump were not in it that's not the way we run elections in this country We run elections in this country because the people of this country get to decide who governs We have a justice system where you don't have prosecutors delivering on their campaign promises to indict specific people and Alvin Brad did run on investigating Donald Trump as a campaign pledge that is not how our justice system is supposed to work and just speaking out of the candidate but as an American I condemn it and I call on him to drop this politicized prosecution because that's the right thing to do and it'll be good for this country
The Mystery of the January 6th Footage
"I want to talk about the mystery of the January 6th footage. But I want to put it in a broader context of what's going on with Fox News and specifically what's going on with Fox News regarding this January 6th video. You remember the Kevin McCarthy gave the video, not Kevin McCarthy says I didn't really give the video I made it available. Well, okay, he made it available to taka Carlson. And I think the expectation was, not just of Kevin McCarthy, but a lot of people who had pushed Kevin McCarthy to release this video, they wanted to see a lot of the stuff that was held back by the January 6th committee. Let's remember the January 6th committee put out a thoroughly cherry picked narrative. So all the videos showing stuff that goes against the January 6th committee was not released. They just, and in fact, if you look further at what happened with the January 6th committee, Liz Cheney even blocked the subcommittees that were looking at things like intelligence failures, the refusal to act on proper intelligence to capital police new things, but they didn't do anything about them. And Liz Cheney was like, don't release any of this why, because we've just got to make Trump the soul and exclusive villain. So you can see the kind of propaganda that that committee ultimately became a propaganda factory.
Could Trump Be Worse the Second Time Around?
"It's not, it's a little more nuanced than that, but I do think you don't credit evangelicals generally with being smart about their vote. My whole view of the evangelical affair with Trump is that the relentless ascendancy of secularism drove evangelicals into his arm and that that election was really about the Supreme Court. And that evangelicals were quite smart to go with Trump after he published his list, and they ended up with justice, Gorsuch justice, Kavanaugh, and justice Amy Coney Barrett, and that was a good deal for evangelicals concerned about freedom of worship. Response I understand all that, I, you know, my perspective was at the time and remains that he was that Trump was pretty clear about his disregard for the constitution for history for sort of the architecture of our democracy. He made that pretty clear in his comments in different ways. And I think he proved that his words meant something when it came to January 6th. So I think, you know, sure, you got a Supreme Court that you like, and we came to a constitutional crisis where we came closer than I and many others would have liked to. Okay, tangent. Tangent, John. If Mike Pence had done the wrong thing and put aside the ballots, what do you think would have happened? It wasn't a constitutional crisis. It was a riot, and it was dangerous, and I hope they're all prosecuted who broke in, but I've had this argument with Liz Cheney. What do you think would happen if Mike Pence had bought it? Well, we don't know what would have happened. I think there's another scenario where they delay it where lawmakers are killed, where they can't get enough lawmakers to actually certify the election. And I think there was talk, I think, by general milley, of concerns about Trump, you know, declaring martial law or some excuse to take military control of the country. We don't have evidence that I think John Roberts would have gotten the court together and they would have declared count the votes in about 24 hours. Maybe not that long. And they would add a Nixon versus the United States 9 zero vote and we weren't close to a constitutional crisis. In fact, my biggest argument with you about your book is you don't actually have a lot of faith that evangelicals believe in the constitution and that there are concerns about the secularization of the society are overstated when in fact I spend a lot of time talking to the alliance defending freedom, they're out there every day combating anti Christian bigotry. I mean, it's real. I've been reporting on this since 1992. It's a constant, secularization, advance that has triggered a lot of the response that you deal with, although covenant life church is different. That's why I'm trying to, that's a very different part of the general evangelical world, isn't it? You know, in some respects, coming to life was not very political. It wasn't involved with things like alliance defending freedom. And you know, I have no problem with people doing those things in through the system that we have. But I think going back to the point about January 6th, were we at the point of a coup, we don't know the point my point is we were way too close for my comfort level and we're now at a point where the same guy is potentially going to be the Republican nominee again. And if he brought us that close last time, my concern is where do we go from here if he's president again?
Fire breaks out at building near White House, no injuries
"A fire broke out today at a historic building next to The White House. Workers were told to evacuate but no injuries were reported after a fire at the Eisenhower executive office building this morning by half past 8 all was calm on the grounds. The large gray tower was finished in 1888, it stands next to the west wing and houses White House workers, the ceremonial offices of the vice president, and notable spaces like the Indian treaty room, District of Columbia fire and emergency medical services tweeted that a defective cooling motor in the basement was the cause of the fire in 2007 then vice president Dick Cheney's offices were damaged by a fire and a marine reportedly suffered injuries punching through a 5th floor window to escape.

Donald Trump Praises Tucker Carlson's Reporting on Jan. 6
"You think it's a coincidence that the two Republicans who were front and center in all of this are now ex congressman, Liz Cheney is off teaching at the University of Virginia, oh my gosh, can you imagine your kid coming home saying my professor is Liz Cheney? Adam kinzinger quit put his tail between his legs and resigned, those are the two Republican torch bearers of the January 6th select committee. Do you realize how big a scandal this is? Do you recognize it? Trump has reacted on his truth social site to Tucker Carlson's reveal last night after playing these videos, Trump tweeted or posted on true social. Congratulations to Tucker Carlson on one of the biggest scoops as a reporter in U.S. history, the new surveillance footage of the January 6th events sheds an entirely different light on what actually happened. The unselect committee, he says, was a giant scam and has now unequivocally been stamped as criminal fabricators of this most important day. Pelosi and McConnell failed on security, the police story is sad and difficult to watch. Trump and most others are totally innocent, let them go free now.
FOX News Poll: Donald Trump Leads GOP Lineup, Including DeSantis
"There is new polling data that shows Donald Trump continues to lead Ron DeSantis. According to the latest Fox News poll, 43% of Republican primary voters believe Donald Trump is going to be their guy 43%. Ron DeSantis 28%. And here's the lineup. These are all the folks that are polling, Nikki Haley 7% Mike Pence 7% Greg Abbott and Liz Cheney 2% apiece. Now, the reason why this is interesting and fascinating is because Fox News has banned Donald Trump from their airwaves. They will not cover his rallies, they will not cover his speeches, he has not been invited to be a guest on any of the shows. So what's fascinating is that his numbers are still high, even though he's been banned from Fox News. Now what does that tell you? Is it possible that Fox News, even though they are anti Trump, may not be all that influential in Republican circles anymore? Is that possible? There were a number of other folks in the poll, but all of those people got less than 1%. Of the vote among Republican primary voters. Now, what's interesting is if you take Trump out of it, well, desantis at that point gets 42%, Mike Pence at 23% and Nikki Haley trailing at 6% and Hailey so far is the only person who's actually thrown her name into the ring.
Mike Gallagher Commits Support to Whoever Becomes the GOP Nominee
"Would you rather have four more years and believe me if Biden runs again in 2024, which he seems to be doing? We all know we're never going to see a completion of his term. So you ready to hand the keys to The White House? Over to Kamala Harris? Or Mitt Romney? So it's a bit of a, it's a bit of a dance. It's a bit of a little bit of maneuvering on my part as a big mouth with a microphone. But I do have to say that while I think you know who I support as the Republican nominee in 2024, I am going to support whichever Republican is elected by the people. And that includes Mitt Romney. I'll say it. It includes Liz Cheney. If there was some bizarre circumstance where Liz Cheney wound up becoming the GOP nominee, I'd have to support her.
Sen. Chuck Grassley: Joe Biden Knew About Hunter's Business Dealings
"So chuck grassley gives testimony today as a man who's 89 years old He's been around a long time He's a man of enormous integrity And none of its being covered None of it He was a 27 year old former staffer to Donald Trump Who gave testimony with the assistance and direction of Liz Cheney Much of the testimony being false he would be paraded around as a great patriot Here in part is what he said today cut three go Further allegations to my office involved FBI personnel at the Washington field office who improperly ordered information to be closed by the FBI related to Hunter Biden's potential criminal conduct in October 2020 just before the election even though it was verified or it was verifiable Other whistleblower disclosures to my office made clear that the FBI has within its position very significant impactful and voluminous evidence with respect to potential criminal conduct by hunter and James Biden These disclosures also allege that Joe Biden was aware of Hunter Biden's business arrangements and may have been involved in some of them We still aren't sure what's been done with this information
Dinesh Reviews Julie Kelly's Latest Reporting on the Missing J6 Files
"I'd like to talk about Julie Kelly's latest article on things we didn't know about January 6th that the January 6th committee has tried to conceal to downplay in some cases to mention, but stick it in an appendix where no one's really going to focus on it. We got a hint of all that when Tim hefe, the chief investigator for January 6th came out and told candidian of NBC News that, oh yeah, that was plenty of intelligence about what was going to happen in January 6th. There was a lot of concrete and practical knowledge that the law enforcement authorities had, but they didn't act on it. They didn't coordinate one with the other. They didn't prepare for this. Now why they didn't prepare for this he didn't go, he doesn't go into, but the point is, this law enforcement failure. At the very least it was a kind of act of coordinated incompetence. Was completely left out of the January 6th committee hearings. They never had hearings where they called law enforcement to account why? Because Liz Cheney and the other is kind of had a narrative law enforcement good Trump and maga bad. Any information that disrupted this narrative was simply excluded. So you see here the January 6th committee is not a real investigation. It's not even a real committee because it didn't have Republican members except handpicked Republicans picked by Pelosi to support the democratic narrative. By the way, this is a good lesson for Kevin, McCarthy, you can do the same thing to the Democrats. Find one or two Democrats if you can find them. Good luck. Who are going to play the game of the Republicans and put them on?

I if i were the shady fans i would be a little bit concerned in large part because it was in wyoming. It's a very pro-trump territory. It has been very true. Pro cheney but i think trump no put intended trump's cheney there and having cheney tie herself to george w bush who over time. The republican party has evolved away from bush.

The latest polling has him dominating everyone and in fact forget the polling the word on the ground in arizona. Is that the entire republican machine. Even those who were very pro-trump are actually backing the attorney general of arizona One of the main reasons that they're backing. the attorney. General is because of the lawsuit that went before the supreme court brnovich is the arizona mark brnovich versus somebody. I can't remember whom But it was the voting rights case out of arizona and brnovich fodder all the way to the supreme court and in so doing he won. It was a huge victory in the. Us bring were brought bridge versus the democratic national committee. The supreme court upheld arizona's election laws that restricted ballot collection and throughout votes. That were cast in the wrong precinct. Bronevich took a very big safeguard election integrity position. It was a six three decision. These kind of the hero arizona.

If you look at our voting record but she's a wonderful liar At least two phonic is Been politics since a very young age. She's very very teeny teens.

She's going to vote The same that she has been she's not going to change that. Because you know i believe. She's in new york politician so yet you have to vote liberal. Lean in new york. To a certain extent you can only get away with so much conservatism in that state is there are. There are requirements in states like new york.

High school shooting which Which is by the way. I mean this does not have. That's not a regular occurrence of you're not paying attention to the house. You don't generally stripped of all of their committee seats right. And and but i think we saw a similar division here. All the democrats voted to do that. A few of the republicans also voted with the democrats to do that. But the the actually about half of the republicans half of the elected. Republicans in the house gave Green a standing ovation when she gave her her speech during during that proceeding. So certainly they're not walking away from her the way they walked away from liz cheney right now some of the republicans are walking away from her And some voted to stripper committee assignments but i think the breakdown was somewhat similar to the breakdown on the loose. Cheney vote where the much larger a group is was standing by green You don't hear them as publicly standing by gates right now I think because of the kind of mystery about still what's gonna what proof is actually gonna come out and i think they don't want to get caught short like publicly defending a guy before Right before maybe some some some proof of of of serious crimes comes out. But but i. I don't know if this thing drags out much longer right now today and the gates case today or yesterday the that that To county tax assessor. That was his friend Did enter a plea agreement and so people are. Maybe expecting that Some of what. He'll testify to in exchange for his plea. Agreement will lead to some Movement forward in the gates case fairly soon but it. but if there's not a forward movement in the gates case fairly soon. I think you will start to hear More some some congressional republicans sticking up for him again. And i think they're all it's a combination of their intimidated by trump. They're intimidated by trump's voters and nobody else has really emerged of to take on trump. You know it looked at different times. Like mcconnell or romney might assume that role but they've both gone very quiet lately And now i guess liz. Cheney has jumped into the breach but so far. she doesn't have a lot of other. elected republicans in her corner. So what do you think. And then we can kind of move forward. But what do you think about in the strategy here on the strategy front again. You kind of separated those two and that's one of the things we're seeing in the comments from the new number three. Which is this move is positive. Because we're going to her words win the majority in two thousand twenty two so in the short term. What do you think this this division. Where the trump i The gen six down players. What does that mean for elections in two thousand twenty to me. That seems like a ways off but house elections fast..

"Or do you think that she's i think some on the left are now holding out as maybe a little bit more special than they would have in other circumstances actually may be. Hey this is what we have to do. We have to continue to think about january. Six what do you think about that that balance there. There's two different Lenses that One could look at that question through One would be the question of the demands of political morality. What's the right thing to do and one would be the question of Political tactics and what. What's the strategically optimal thing to do. Those might not give the same answer. so certainly as someone who believes that trump was responsible for the events of january sixth and that he needs to be held accountable for it. I am pleased to see. Some republicans A smaller and smaller minority of them but some republicans Most most vocally. Liz cheney right now continuing to to Expound that view. It's my view and i agree with it and i'm glad they're doing it And i think i think they should But you know in terms of Politics it's that's a harder one because of course right now most republicans still support trump. And the the lopsided votes that we saw On the roll call vote today and on the voice. Vote the other day that removed. Liz cheney Those those represent probably the the center of gravity of the republican party But you know there is a short sightedness to that strategy to because If the republican party has shrunk down to only the the the fanatical trump supporters You know we already saw. Trump didn't win the election. Two thousand twenty. He also caused the republicans to georgia's senate elections in twenty twenty and i think there is a political downside. in in Making the publican party inhospitable to anybody. Who's not committed to the big lie. Yeah and the thing that i think becomes particularly difficult. I like that you put it into those those two buckets and there is a truth to the fact that we have to ask ourselves. What the right thing to do. In circumstances and it's not always the expedient or always the most power maximizing thing to do but as i continue to look at this. Can i think that in this case the to overlap for republicans. I really do. Think that the cheney view sometimes there are things where you have you know kind of short term losses that lead to long term gains. Were you've shirt. Short term discomfort to lead to long-term game. And i can't help but sing the chain. You which is which is my view being both the mo the morally correct one..

"Cheney's from the House Republican promotion? I don't understand your phone understand Republicans anymore, or the ABC s So here's the thing. The reason that Republicans don't get along with Joe Biden because Joe Biden is not a moderate. Joe Biden is a radical and his policies are crappy. They are bad. There's an indicator of this policy suck. OK, so Joe Biden is out there bragging that he's created so many jobs so many times. Now he has created zero jobs. Hey, The reason that the economy is rebounding has nothing to do with Joe Biden has to do with the fact that we had 3.5% unemployment before the pandemic. Then we had an artificial government shutdown of the entire economy for a year, And now people are coming back out, and they're starting to work again. He fails to understand a basic reality in the United States, the government does not create the jobs. Government Unless it's directly hiring. You does not create the jobs. People like me create the jobs. People like corporations, like my company creates the jobs corporations out there. Our company is only 130 People 140 people. Their corporations employ tens of thousands of people there. Small businesses that employ hundreds of thousands of people across the United States. Joe Biden has created This many jobs his entire career. By the way, I hate it when when Trump would say I've created this many jobs. No, you didn't create that many jobs. You created conditions under which businesses could create jobs. Maybe, but Joe Biden has not even done that. Joe Biden. Has basically created the conditions whereby employees cannot go back to work or refused to go back to work. They're getting paid more to stay home here is Joe Biden, saying, We've created so many jobs. One of the things that That I'm proud of is in the 1st 100 days that I became president. We have created more jobs and that period of time than any administration in history, but the well, look at that. That's just a down payment, getting his back for the American Recovery Act. Just getting his back and getting people. A lot of that had to do with getting people vaccinated, getting 600 million doses of the of the vaccine and getting people in a position where it was available. This batty old coot doesn't know what he's talking about. Then he says things like that. My infrastructure bill will create 16 million Jim Avenues. OK, it's not going to, even by the CBO estimates. It creates him like three million jobs over baseline and only cost like $2. Trillion. That means that we could spend You know, like $100,000 a job makes perfect sense for several $100,000. Anyway, Here's Joe Biden being an idiot. All the economists, including the liberal as well as conservative think tanks. Point out we located with past his job. Kinda crap Crate upto 16 million good paying jobs. Not $8 an hour $12 not $15 prevailing wage job. Wages. You gonna raise a family on? My dad was here just a little bit of breathing room.

Also top shelters most recent episode and the key demo averaging one hundred eighty two thousand viewers among the group coveted by advertisers. Now ears part of the problem. you live by trump. You die by trump in stelter has made his entire show about trump and fox news. And it's gotten highly predictable. I do have to say you know a every week. There's going to be something about a a an obsession about republicans and obsession about trump at an obsession about Fox news and he's going to steer conversations to liberal pundits about those topics. It's just become very predictable. That's of the problems. In the post. Trump media environment is how predictable so much of his become. You pretty much know where all of the trump supporters are going to be what. They're going to say what they're going to think what they're gonna do. You also know the anti-trump people what they're going to say what they're gonna think what they're gonna do who they're going to have on their shows what those people are going to say. There's no more nuanced left there. There's there's no more unpredictability and it just becomes kind of insufferable. And just i. I've been on his show before in overtime he just seems more and more broken by trump. He is obsessed with it like. It's some sort of existential threat. That i don't think it is but progressives do which means his shows become reliably progressive in his. Talking points and highly predictable. You don't have to watch the show each week because you know exactly what they're going to talk about is become laissez show about how the media covers things to how bad fox's at covering president trump and why isn't fox like us and all. There's there's no point at this point and that the ratings went up. That's one thing you never want to have happened when you go on vacation as a host. You'd never want your ratings to go up while you're on vacation and it happened to him. It was only a weekly show so it's only one time but if it happened again i think that would be fair warning for the that sita that you've got a problem on your hands with your show. I just wish the media would finally get over their obsession with donald trump. They don't want him back on facebook. But you know secretly they kind of do because that's all they got to talk about every story like the media's liz cheney obsession is actually an obsession with donald trump not liz cheney in.

"Facebook is very difficult position. I think they work themselves out of it by being bastions of free speech. And saying we'll make it very easy for you to block someone so you don't have to see the person but we ourselves are not going to do that in prioritize their algorithm as they have been doing so that it focuses on your friends and family network more so than the groups that you join but i really really really think it's time to let donald trump back yet. I i don't think zuckerberg got it wrong. Dealing with with what we were dealing with in january six. It was something new. The president clearly was getting a little in unhinged. putting him in a timeout leading him settled down. I think was the right decision. But it's time to lay back. I don't have any if they've gone to outsource its decision making to someone other than facebook. That's fine i think. An outside group though filled with people who are committed to a first amendment. Because they don't have one of their country is going to cause facebook to be less open to free speech. I wish it would be. But i also think that a lot of people the left to the right are looking for villains these days and they found an easy one in facebook the right views facebook is a villain because they don't get everything they want the left views facebook as a villain because they know they can't control mark zuckerberg jack. Dorsey is just a pillar of left-wing progressive. Movement's the heads of google are as well tim. Cook is the head of net flicks pours money into left. Wing causes and zuckerberg kinda stands alone. As this more libertarian guy so the left resists like hell that there is one massive tech company out there in silicon valley that they themselves. Don't get to control that guy and access to his money so they're perfectly happy to vilify him. And frankly i think that conservatives should look at this and say listen. They're they're not with us but they're not necessarily fully against us like twitter at google. The like you can still buy large use their platform but in this day and age. Everyone is very tribal. You're either with us or against us. You can't be someone in the middle. And i think that's maybe what facebook is trying to do. They're certainly doing it better than twitter in some of these others that are deeply openly hostile constantly to all conservatives not just prominent ones. I think it would do facebook a world of good at this point though. They're gonna have to pick aside. And i think the side they need to pick as a very clearly defined one that world leaders and concluding former world leaders get a little more benefit of the doubt to be on the platform. And i think most people would agree with that even while the left us. I gotta laugh at this one You know brian stelter. He is the reliable sources host on cnn. He has routinely gone after fox news..

"They don't have to think about it. They do not have to pursue it as long as the republicans themselves are not doing it. So the more. The republicans and the media can get spun up about liz. Cheney the better his which is probably why she needs to step aside at this point her purpose as house. Republican conference chair is to bring a united message and the united message on television seems to be That republicans are bad for one in her to go and the republican messages. It's time for her to go. I look i actually think that cheney's she's far more conservative at least two phonic who the house. Republicans wanted to replacement. That's kind of one of the dirty little secrets here. Is you get rid of cheney in leadership stefanik says all of the stuff that people who like trump like but her record is actually fairly liberal. Compared to liz cheney's but cheney's job is not to be a conservative or a progressive or a or anything other than the republican uniter of message to get all of the house. Republicans on the same talking points and she can't do that she is insistent Dogmatically so that the republicans have to expressly say what donald trump did and inspired on january six as bad. And you know what she. And i actually see on only issue. I know a lot of you don't but if the goal is to win twenty twenty to the focus needs to be on the biden agenda the incoming republican nor democratic president. Whoever it may be if they control congress. Their party does poorly in the midterms. Frankly if they don't control congress party does poorly in the midterms whoever controls the white house their party doesn't do well in midterms in the midterms are coming. Republicans have some incredible advantages. They're going to be on defense in the senate to a degree but in the house of representatives. The democrats are not very United the democrats are not very popular their messages to progressive for the american public. They've seized on a splitter up electorate in demanded that it be a mandate for joe biden. Which it's not. There are ways to beat the democrats at this moment. There are ways to beat them. There are ways to show that the gop would be better stewards. There are ways for the gop to highlight the biden administration's recklessness and they can't do it as long as they're all fighting over liz. Cheney probably time for her to step aside. There's no reason to to to fixate on this. But i just i got i got a point out to you. Every major news outlet today has stories about louis.

"These weren't private companies acting as private companies. They were acting on behalf of the liberal wing of Congress because Congress co opted Silicon Valley through the back door. Do what it couldn't do directly under the Constitution through the front door, And here's how they did it. First. They did had sex in 2 30 liability exemption, which said that you cos uniquely can't be sued. We're taking down and censoring content in state court. That was the carrot. They combined that with the stick, remember all last year, congressional Democrats called the Silicon Valley's up. Told them in Congress that if you don't sensors, so called hateful speech, we're gonna regulate the heck out of you. That carrot and that stick was actually used to conduct state action under the mantle of private enterprise, and what I believe is, if that state action hiding in the clothing of private enterprise Then it better be subject to the First Amendment, just like the actions of Congress should be as well. And I think that's what Republicans in the new conservative movement needs to recognize. It's not 1980 anymore. It's not just big government that's the enemy. It's the new government industrial complex, the woke industrial complex that is actually the biggest threat to liberty today, which is not just big government, but big governments tentacles working through private enterprise to really choke ordinary Americans. Liberty and a lot of it, in my opinion is unconstitutional, illegal and should be adjudicated not through regulation, but through the courts, which I still think of the last standing institution. Americans of all stripes on a trust, and it isn't just conservative that should be worried. It could be libertarians and liberals at least principles liberals that are equally worried, too.

Why doesn't she apply the same standards that she said she was so offended by with Donald Trump to Camilla Order. Joe wants to take Donald Trump behind the gym.

I haven't heard to speak out about Chuck Schumer, you know, threatening Kavanaugh on Gorsuch Pure Gonna pay a price. You won't know what hit you. Why doesn't she Is a never Trumper. Why didn't she apply the same standards? Oh, no, we wrong to demand That's your standard, Apply it equally across the board. Well, what Liz Cheney got to do yesterday is something that her family has been wanting to do for more than a decade, and that is to punch back at Donald Trump. We're exposing what happened during the Bush Cheney regime, his criticism legitimate criticism of the Iraq war and weapons of mass destruction. His criticism of Dick Cheney specifically, So she got back her on behalf of her family and Donald Trump Yesterday her statement was preposterous that this is the worst betrayal ever of the president and history. I mean, really, I mean, all of us could think of 100 different examples just over the past few decades of presidents who did far more egregious conduct than what they're alleging. Trump did.
