A Look at Gubernatorial Polls With Charlie Pierce

"Speaking of electorally, there's a glitter of hope you retweeted that chuck grassley's and it's statistical tie. Someone tweeted, I was gonna go blue, blue tsunami incoming and you just said, hello. Yeah, I mean, yeah, this is a race that nobody's noticed. Right. Right. And you know, I wonder, the guy who's running against, by the way, his name, Mike Franken. Yeah. And I'm wondering how many people in Iowa think they're voting for Al Franken. That's fine. You know, seriously. And it's life and death for old chuck and he's not, you know, he's built for comforting and built for speed. He's not built for the home stretch right now. Yeah. So who knows? I mean, I mean, I think you're going to, I think what you are going to see is a lot of split ticket voters. Yeah. Yeah. For example, I think in Iowa, Kim Reynolds is probably going to get reelected governor. But grassley could lose. Yeah. Whitmer's going to win. You know, I think the democratic gubernatorial candidates are in great shape. Do you? I hope so. Tony Evers in Wisconsin, I'm sending novena upwards for, but I think a lot of them, I think a lot of them are going to survive more Healy's going to win, you know, from here or there in Massachusetts, not the typical of anything. Right. Right. But you know, I guess it is astounding that statistical speaking of statistical ties, Herschel Walker. Has gone up despite all these allegations. I don't believe any of the polling out of Georgia. I really don't. Nobody's been able to predict Georgia correctly for about ten years now. Yeah. I think that there's a whopping big vote down there who doesn't want to be represented in Congress by, you know, inarticulate doof.

Cliff Schecter on How Democrats Are Finally Learning to Punch Back

"Talking about, you know, I think that's getting more and more popular sort of, you know, we were just played some Eric swalwell. Alpha liberal, like, you know, I think many of us are learning how to punch back, right? Biden's ratings are up. There are Democrats that are really out there, I think, vocalizing everything that Biden and the Democrats are getting done. And Republicans offer nothing. Well, I mean, when I came on here in the past, we would have a group misery party about like, why can't Democrats do this? Why can't you always comment when there's negative things about them and jump in instead of instead of offering no comment, like they've raided Mar-a-Lago, go comment. But we've gotten so much better at talking about what Biden's doing. We've gotten so much better. And they have. I mean, to me, I mean, and I hope it ends up being a seminal moment in this campaign when their White House do you know that the president tweeted out all the tweeted out the PPP loans that each of these SOBs, these complete hypocritical liars who didn't tell these students who just want to take money and have no accountability and then you find out that, you know, chuck grassley sitting there on his forearm a 112 years old. And he's sitting there just collecting government money. He never pays back. None of these guys ever, but it's okay. They're white. So they don't have to. And I mean, the fact that they went to The White House account that they did that, the fact that Biden, people were like, why do you say semi fascists? And I was like, guys, keep your eye on the ball. He used the word fascist in there. That's the word people are going to remember. It was uncomfortable for him to even get to that place.

More Reactions To The FBI's Raid of Mar-A-Lago

"Here's The Wall Street Journal editor. Well, first let me play a little audio because there's a lot of great audio on this yesterday. Let's start with senator Rick Scott on Fox business with degan McDowell, cut number 8. Well, first of all, it makes you mad. I mean, this is unprecedented. A former president potential opponent to Biden in 24 is house gets rated. We know the Biden administration targets their opponents. Merrick Garland's targets, democratic opponents. This is well, here's what needs to happen today. Separately, mayor Garland, Christopher wray, Joe Biden need to do press conference, take all questions, explain why they're doing what they're doing, what each of them knew when this should scare every American until we get answers. This should be, you should have unbelievable concern. I got more phone calls. Let's go over to Ted Cruz. Cut number 13. That's exactly right. What we've got to do is win control of the House and Senate so that we have the authority to engage in oversight. It was interesting that the director of the FBI was there for one round of questions. At the end of the round of questions, we were supposed to have a second round. He said, no, I got a plane to catch. I'm sorry I gotta go. He didn't want another round of questions as chuck grassley observed. Wait a second. You've got your own plane. The FBI has a private jet just for you, so you're playing to catch it. You just don't want to have any more investigation. We need serious oversight. We need accountability. The people who have been political and partisan need to be fired. And if they broke the law right, let's hear Marco Rubio say the same thing. Cut number ten. You know, an FBI raid looking for supposed classified documents is a ridiculous alibi. Unlike anyone else in the federal government, no president can be guilty of illegally handling classified information because a president has complete and final authority to decide whether something is classified or not.

"Senator chuck grassley of Iowa has been writing letters to Merrick Garland and to the FBI director Christopher wray and these letters normally I'm not big on letter writing because I'm like a letter is nothing more than a kind of piece of paper that very often these guys are going to just toss into the trash can, big deal and sometimes our side has a tendency to think that if you write a letter, you've somehow done something. No, you haven't done anything. But in this case, we have grassley, who is an influential figure on the, in the Senate judiciary. And so it's the committee that has oversight over the FBI. And writing on judiciary committee letter had grassley makes two points. And both the points have been derived from FBI whistleblowers. These are FBI agents who have come forward and have apparently revealed two interesting things. The first one is that the FBI has been very involved in suppressing, suppressing investigations connected with Hunter Biden and the Biden crime family. So this is very telling that the FBI has been deliberately ignoring evidence and they have been using the fig leaf. In fact, they've been using the pretense that they know to be untrue. That this is Russia and disinformation.

"I asked the FBI, where your laptop was, and it seems they've misplaced it. How weird? But it just turns out that I have a copy right here. I entered it in the congressional record. We have your texts. We have your emails. We have the payments from burisma. We have your travel records. We even know the Chinese communists who own you. You and the big guy have never lived one day under real Republican oversight. I put that in there and I left that last line in for a reason. That's what leads me to that second possible explanation. That maybe just for a second, given the unlikely possibility we have some good actors in the DoJ, there's a small possibility they're waiting to left to the election so they have some political cover when they'll be Republican oversight rather than Democrat oversight. Just the thought. This is another great article, it's just the news dot com on Geno report as well and in my newsletter. Chuck grassley, who has spent a lifetime calling out political BS in the FBI and elsewhere. He's a U.S. senator, of course. He said, corrupted to the very core whistleblower say DoJ and FBI are showing political bias and investigations. Graz Lee's had none of this. He's having none of this anymore. He has been all, I remember when I was a Secret Service agent, they would say all the time about grassley. Don't mess around in front of graslie. Love him or hate him. It's not my job. I'm not endorsing anybody or anything. I'm just telling you the facts. He has been all over corruption and bias in federal law enforcement for a long time. And he is very, very concerned about what's going on here. Folks, this is the big reason I support president Trump and I'm hoping he runs again. He will not have the pressure of reelection. He can do the right thing. He doesn't have to do the easy thing. Political pressures everywhere that's not pretend everybody hears above it. But the political pressure will be severely reduced. He doesn't have to worry about winning anything again. It is a generational opportunity for us because the right thing to fix this broken government get rid of the people who have hijacked it for political purposes rather than the purposes of advancing public service. All right, I've got a lot more to get to. I want to switch gears. Folks, I'm fascinated and always have been by information warfare. I studied psychology in college for a reason. I wasn't because I was lazy or didn't want to do anything else because I was fascinated by it. I used to read those books about the FBI mindhunters, their behavioral analysis teams. I've always been fascinated about why this mass of neurons and gray matter can produce insane, crazy things like, I mean, insane in a bad way. I mean, insane, like hard to comprehend, art and these beautiful thoughts, how one person can put together a theory of relativity. And yet another person has struggles to do basic math. It always fascinated me. So information warfare fascinates me too. How you can I used to have a segment I was considering when I had my old show back at a different network. It was called red news blue news. I love the idea of the segment. Maybe I'll do it on my Fox show. Red news blue news. The idea this segment was how you can take the same fact set. Facts. Three plus three equals 6. And how the red news and the blue news interprets those two facts differently, which leads to a totally different outcome. Which is strange, because three plus three still equals X you see this here.

But she said, under federal law, involuntary manslaughter occurs when a person commits an act on federal property without due care that it might produce death. That's what it is, right? So she says to establish a criminal case of manslaughter against Trump prosecutors who would need to prove each of the elements of that offense beyond a reasonable doubt and act committed without due care that caused death did Trump commit an act that could constitute actus Rus. That's fancy. Yes, ipso is a perspective. That has nothing to do with that story decides this. But it's something else

"Now, sleep. I put in the category of Jonathan Swan Joshua, who's just a straight down in the middle reporter. He has a call not on Iowa this morning, Jonathan. Iowa has gone from purple to red to deep red. They're not going to have any congressman standing. They're not even going to have a senator on the ballot against chuck grassley, which is malpractice. I think that's happening in Pennsylvania as well. Just take us up to 30,000 feet. You cover politics. I'm going to come back to a couple of issues in a second, but up at 30,000 feet. Do you see all of the blue washing out of the non coastal areas and the heartland of the country's red? It's certainly been the very pronounced trend. And I mean, the problem with this year as something to sort of draw 30,000 foot conclusions is the best political environment for Republicans in 2010. And so you could have some really astonishing results that are atypical. But yeah, absolutely. As a macro trend for sure, that's what's happening. And Democrats don't really seem to have answers for it. I'm not seeing any anyway from the national leadership.

Federal Investigation of Hunter Biden Heats Up

"So you have The Washington Post coming out saying the laptop is true. Miranda divine to her great credit led with the story with the article laptop from hell. The New York Post published it and they lost their Twitter account for even talking about it. And now you're starting to see in mainstream regime media pretty extensive coverage about a an indictment that might be looming because of a very serious and real federal investigation against Hunter Biden. This is CNN play cut 42. Well, Brianna, this is a very real, very substantial investigation of potentially serious federal crimes. We are seeing federal prosecutors in Delaware. Do exactly what you would expect to see federal prosecutors doing this situation. They're talking to witnesses, they're bringing people into the grand jury. They're issuing subpoenas. And I would expect, as Evan reported, they're now gaining steam and they need to make a decision, I think, in the at least intermediate future. In this case has been going on for four years and there is a realistic chance this could result in federal charges. Of course, then we be in unprecedented political territory, not legal territory, but a situation of having potentially the Justice Department prosecuting and trying to imprison the son of the president. And look, it's not like Hunter Biden is being investigated for doing something completely unrelated from his father. It's not like they're investigating Hunter Biden for not paying taxes because he's a sports star for the Lakers or for the New York rangers. Now this is because a business dealings he was doing with his father for his father and because his father who was who he was. The federalist dot com kind of summarizes some of truck grassley's findings, as chuck grassley and Ron Johnson have been on the story for years now and smeared at every single turn by the activist media but turns out they were totally right and completely on the Mark. Meanwhile, the activist press was not, according to the documents obtained by the senators, energy company CEFC, and an official arm of the Chinese government paid, Hunter Biden $100,000 cash further credit to a wasco, hunter's firm. There's no middle man in this transaction. This is a $100,000 wire transfer from what is effectively an arm of the Chinese government directly to Hunter

Hunter Biden's 'Laptop From Hell' With Miranda Devine

"With us right now is a phenomenal patriot, she's super smart and is shaking the matrix. There's a lot happening. I think it's because of her reporting and because of her book that we're starting to see some rumblings from our federal law enforcement agencies. In the direction of Hunter Biden with us is Miranda divine author of the plainly titled but accurately titled book the laptop from hell, Miranda, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks so much. Charlie, great to be with you. So tell us the book is out I've heard some amazing things about it and so tell us what the reaction has been. Well, look, it's been a bestseller, sold a lot of copies to people on our side of the fence, but really there was this wall between conservatives and people who are, you know, perhaps Trump voters who didn't vote for Joe Biden. And the people who read The New York Times and watched CNN and MSNBC and just were kept in the dark by their favored organs before the election. And until 17 months later, last week, The New York Times broke that wall, just a little, just a little chink by admitting that yes, the laptop from hell, Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop is real and they had authenticated emails on it. I mean, we did that 17 months ago, you know, basically the New York Post that was your previous guest, Emma Joe Morris, my friend, my colleague, she did a brilliant job of doing the due diligence that was necessary. And we also had Charlie Bobbie linsky, who you didn't need the laptop. You could just talk to Tony bubble linsky who was a very is a very credible businessman who got caught up in the Hunter Biden mess and a patriot, a naval veteran. He offered himself to the media and gave a press conference before the election after the New York Post story first came out. And no one was interested. They just dismissed him. They ignored him. We didn't. We published the material that he gave us, which was, you know, it corroborated what was on the laptop and it augmented it. And then there was the chuck grassley and Ron Johnson inquiry, which already about a month before we published that stories had already started laying down the paper trail, the documents that showed all this millions of dollars ended up being tens of millions of dollars coming out of Chinese and Russian and Ukrainian shady coffers into the bank accounts in America of Joe Biden's family members and their business

U.S. Senate Passes $1.5 Trillion Gov't Funding Bill With Ukraine Aid

"So I want to get into a story here that broke late last night. The United States Senate has approved the $1.5 trillion spending bill that expands the power of the IRS and dramatically increases the size and scope of government last evening, but also it sends $13.6 billion to Ukraine. We're going to get into that. Now Senate Republicans voted for this 18 of them voted for it. Senator barrasso from Wyoming, Roy blunt from Missouri. Shelley Moore capito from West Virginia, Susan Collins from Maine, John cornyn from Texas, Joni Ernst from Iowa, Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, chuck grassley from Iowa. Kathy Hyde Smith from Mississippi, Mitch McConnell from Kentucky. Senator Moran from Kansas, Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, rob Portman from Ohio, senator Shelby from Alabama, John thune from South Dakota, Tommy tuberville from Alabama, a senator wicker from Mississippi and senator young from Indiana. Approved Nancy Pelosi's $1.5 trillion omnibus bill. What good are Republicans when we have Republicans doing the work of Democrats? So I want to focus on one part of this, which of course is us spending $13.6 billion to Ukraine. Now, I'm not going to get into whether or not we should send the money. I've already made my position clear on that. I'm going to ask a couple of questions about this. How about leaders thought this through? What does success look like with this sort of funding appropriation? What is an acceptable result? So a rational way of going about spending money, any person that we have here at NRB would ask the question before you spend $13.6 billion before you embark on a mission, you just have to say if it's the right or wrong thing to do, but also weigh the reality of pulling off that task. And the track record associated with the entity or the organization proposing it. So I have a question for all of our listeners that support sending money to Ukraine. Do you have trust in the CIA? Does mark milley and Lloyd Austin give you confidence? Because that's who we just funded. Does giving foreign aid to other countries give you confidence or does it give you skepticism? So just to be clear, these Republicans and a lot of people that are pushing for sending a to Ukraine. And it might be the right choice, by the way. I have said I don't believe it is. I could be corrected, but it's already

Senate Panel Moves Forward With Bill Targeting Big Tech

"Last question, senator grassley, your longtime colleague who will win reelection again this year, has sponsored a big tech bill along with Amy Klobuchar. I am not a fan of that bill. Have you been persuaded of that, bill yet? No, I haven't. I think there is a lot more that we need to look into. I absolutely respect chuck grassley. Of course. I will take a look at that Bill. I'll do a deeper dive into it. But there is a lot of discussion that needs to happen across the board. Big tech, this will be a tricky one for us to navigate. They are private industry. They are we have to recognize that they are private industry, but have we given them through the United States federal government, have we given them the opportunity to really prevent free speech out there? All of those concerns need to be addressed. I'm not sure that we have found the right answer yet.

"chuck grassley" Discussed on Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood

"All this week, we're talking about what regulation of the tech industry could look like. One area lawmakers are examining is how companies manage online content, including whether section two 30, which shields platforms from liability for what users post needs another look. Republican senator chuck grassley of Iowa has been outspoken on this issue, we sat down for an interview with the U.S. capitol, just before a warning came through a speaker, calling senators to the chamber for a vote. Grassley says his constituents often complain to him about censorship on social media platforms. And I asked him what Congress should do about it? Before I answer your question, I think it'd be, I'd like to give you the observation that I think that there happens to be a bipartisan agreement that hold on quote something needs to be done, but there's also a bipartisan opposition that things aren't this bad. We shouldn't do it, and we might screw things up. So if your question to me is, what can Congress do, there's a lot of things we can do if there's a will to do it, but right now, I see things pretty evenly divided. You are one of the few people still working in the Senate who actually signed the original piece of tech legislation more than 25 years ago, the communications decency act, which included that infamous section two 30. How do you think that lost a hold up today? The purpose has served a very good purpose. And that purpose is new new ideas in 1996. And new instruments of communication and that they needed some protection because we thought they were so good. And we're talking about before the words Google, Facebook, Twitter, wherever known. Those weren't words then. To help him get started. Now that they have become to the monopolistic point of view and control that they have and influence they have, it seems to me it's time to either do away with two 30 or to modify. How would you like to see it modified? I think I'd rather see it done away with. Why do you think it just needs to be completely done away with? The reason it was put in place in the first place to protect new instruments getting started is not applicable to these big platforms that we have now. Now somebody would say to you, well, we've got some little startups that need that protection. So then I said, I'd rather do away with it than modify it, but one of the ways of modifying it would be to make exceptions for smaller organizations. If we completely do away with section two 30 and tech companies do have to be liable for what people say on their platform. Wouldn't that just increase censorship by these tech companies? We've been warned of that, but I know how bad censorship is now. And I don't want to make it worse. How removing two 30 make it better? Or would it? Well, from the standpoint of censorship, these people, the various groups that are involved, there's actually a feeling that they serve a public utility purpose. And they all be regulated that way. I don't particularly take that point of view, but that's one answer to your question. What view do you take? What do I think? Yeah. I think it's going to lead to some compromise rather than repeal. Okay. I'd like to talk about another one of your bills that you filed this summer, the team act, tougher enforcement against monopolies, which would remove all the antitrust enforcement to the Department of Justice away from the FTC and FCC. Why do you think it's necessary to move that enforcement? I have seen, although it hasn't been a big problem, but too often, DOJ negotiating with FTC, what should we do and what you should do or sometimes not being able to settle it? And then actually both taking action or maybe nobody taking action. I think that sort of competition among government agencies is not legitimate and it's waste a taxpayer's money. So that's the reason why you would give DOJ more of the antitrust provisions. Would that come with more funding for the Department of Justice? The Department of Justice, but don't forget there's another Klobuchar grassley bill that has passed a Senate. Merger fee. And it's in the house that gives a more fundy by charging some mergers that are big more and then reducing the costs for mergers that are smaller companies. You're talking about your reputation earlier. You're also have quite a reputation for being an active user of social media. Congratulations on your new great granddaughter, by the way. Oh, you keep track. You're very up to date. Did you get the second one? Today we announced one today. Yes, I know. I saw the photo. It was very cute. I think that's a 15th one. Oh my gosh. You know, you are a very active user of social media, which kind of turned some of these ages stereotypes about who and how people use social media. On its head, what do you think it means to have somebody like you in front of pushing for tech regulation? Well, I hope I give credibility to it. Because I use it, I think, oh, I give credibility to the arguments where I think it's abused. I think hope I give credibility to the arguments why it's very useful. Because for me, as a political leader, it gives me an opportunity to put issues out there that maybe wouldn't otherwise get discussed as much because I think my job isn't just to listen to people. My constituents, my job is also to maybe promote discussions of issues and in a democracy you can't have too much promotion of issues, and that's kind of what I use Twitter for.

We're gonna make america great again again about that. Slogan you guys on board Tommy what do you think so. Make america great again again. It's it's hilariously stupid. We it is but it's exactly the kind of perfect amount of stupid that will make a liberals market online in reinforced. The message ad. Nauseam i am i wrong and i just i don't know i think it's pretty memorable leon. I'm not gonna forget it. Yeah it's pretty good so make america. Great again was not his originally sold from reagan but yet like we all remember it. And i think in a weird way. This kind of works pretty well. When biden's numbers have dropped and there's a bit of this cove malays feeling these rallies are his focus groups right used to make fun of the two thousand eight clinton campaign for like rolling out new slogans and painting buses and trump just like goes up in front of a bunch of people and riffs on stuff and whatever lands becomes his slogan. I mean i think it's tough to argue that Life was a great in america between twenty sixteen in two twenty twenty one every single poll showed huge majorities of the country Saying the country's on the wrong track but that was never really the point of magazines. Take great when he's president. That's exactly the point. That's that's always been. The point is no. You can go all through the socio. What what did he talk about. He's he's yearning fern. America that no no no. It was just thought behind it. It's when i'm not president. The country sucks when i'm president. The country's great the followers love no need to go below surface level there right and just you know because he is an avatar for their grievance he has no it's an identity driven campaign so when he is president it is the victory for their identity when he is not their identity has been defeated. Shout out to some of my favorite slogans from the two thousand eight hillary clinton campaign. My favorite of course always will always be strength. Plus experience equals change because that means You also have the corollary strength. Plus experience divided by change equals one which is always been my favorite formula in all politics. Math equations make great political slogans. That's always been the best thing to do is to not make any choices and then just tack them together like on the bus. John kerry thousand four slogan from the campaign. I was on stronger at home respected in the world. Yep real what was the other other hillary. When i always loved from iowa that she put on the side of the bus it just ends in time to pick a president. Real change strengthen. The problems real solutions. Yeah i just. I always loved you just kind of a trunk situation of too many people throwing ideas because the fact that it is time to pick a president is what we all know going into a presidential election so Slogans aside joining trump on stage was iowa's republican governor republican members of congress in eighty eight year old republican senator chuck grassley who accepted trump's endorsement for another six-year term despite calling his actions on january. Sixth quote extremely aggressive and irresponsible. That was chuck grassley back. Then here's chuck grassley over the weekend.

"Try to investigate this stuff instead of just say, Oh, well. The Wisconsin Election Commission says there was no illegality. Found over the past year point by Point law by law that was systematically broken. Nobody else in the rest of the media outside of talk radio. Dared to comment on this rampant lawlessness. How the Wisconsin Election Commission literally violated the law in keeping Kanye West and the Green Party off about they literally just ignored the law. Nobody else reported on this. Why? Because they're ideologically driven. They're not driven by a need to ascertain the truth. But rather a need to advance a narrative. Was a wonderful, wonderful call Bill. And I do. Thank you for it. Do we have a another? Another call before the break. Do we have time for that? Yeah, I think so. Let's go to Jeff in Caledonia. How you doing, Jeff? Jack in California, Jack, I apologize, sir. What's your thought of the timeline? From the time President Trump was talking and the capital is breached. You know today on news backs, they said that the president is still talking. When you know, I mean, you know, the rally started in there already. People at the Capitol, you know, ready to protest, and then he was still talking and it was breached. I was watching the hearings. And I thought, you know Chuck Grassley really, you know, frantically trying to turn the meeting, and then he was whisked away and I said, Hey, Something's going on and you know, but I didn't have the Trump rally on. You know, And I just, you know, Want to know what you're you know, you said you your family was there. Well, I can actually give you a text. My wife It's just like okay, she said. Quote. I saw thousands of people start walking to the capital in the middle of Trump's speech. I'd like to know what time the mob actually entered the capital. His speech was beyond boring. People were freezing and, frankly, had heard everything he was talking about. Before. Then, she adds, Imagine where Republicans would be if they said the actions of a few bad actors does not overshadow the millions of Americans standing for election integrity. Exactly. My wife should be the White House press secretary. I'm telling you, she's got all the political talent in my family. She's absolutely right. And what she saw firsthand was and I think they actually she and her parents. Started walking towards the capital before President Trump was done. Which would, of course, also undercut this notion that somehow President.

Mitch is inside and, as he said, on the West side where we are, because we cannot go anywhere else Right now, it is just a sea of people really just waiting to see what is gonna happen next, and they have just completely taken over the area where they were constructing the stage and such for President elect Joe Biden to be inaugurated later on this month and is completely taken over by the protesters sitting in those scaffolding areas. All over this area on the west side of Capitol Now, as you've been here, All we keep hearing is a siren's left and right cars whizzing by trying to get to the capital, the security area. I mean, I'm looking around and Cars had to come from grassy areas. Blood everywhere as people who are lying through your police vehicles as well to get the situation under control. Some good news here is that some of the people are starting to file away from the area. But the people who are staying are shouting Nothinto, hold the line and to not give up the fight. So Lost summer starting to move away. It is a small fraction. Of the thousands that are up against the West side of the Capitol building and admits China and East side as well. There are thousands more so it's remains to be seen how they're going to get all these folks out of here. Even with the curfew as day turns to night back to you. All right, Ken, Thank you so much, And we haven't told you what happened to Mike Pence. The vice president and Chuck Grassley had been evacuated from the chamber because of continuity of government reasons. It is 308 here.
