Jared Asch Talks With Chris Whitmore of the Richmond Promise
"I am joined by Christopher Whitmore of Richmond Promise. And Chris, first, tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to Richmond Promise. And then tell us, what is the Richmond Promise? Absolutely. First off, thank you for inviting me on the podcast. Really great to be here and have this conversation. So I was raised here in the city of Richmond. I still live in Richmond, and growing up here in our community, like so many other young people, I wanted to enter into a career pathway and build an adult life in which I could support the Richmond community and try to make this city, this community, the kind of place that I always envisioned it to be, which is a place where everyone can thrive. Everyone can feel welcome here in Richmond, feel like they have opportunities from the city, from the community to be who they want to be, to contribute to this space and to make this city better for everyone. And so with that really broad, general goal in mind, I decided at a very young age, elementary school age, that I wanted to be a public official when I grew up. I wanted to work specifically in the mayor's office of the city of Richmond when I grew up. And my godmother, Erma Anderson, was mayor when I was in elementary school. She was the first African -American woman elected mayor of the city of Richmond. I grew up with folks like John Gioia, who's our county supervisor and has been our representative for several years on the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and several other folks who really inspired me to want to build out a career in public service. And so with that in mind, I went off to college. I went out of state to Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri. I studied political science with an emphasis in public law. After graduating from Webster in 2014, I moved to Washington, D .C., where I was accepted into a congressional fellowship. And through that fellowship, I worked in the office of then U .S. Senator Bill Nelson's office of Florida. I moved back to Richmond in December 2014 and got my first job, first full time job working for Congressman Mark DeSaulnier, who at the time was the representative, newly elected representative for California's 11th congressional district. I had the privilege of working as an outreach coordinator in his Richmond office, which is actually just down the hall from where my current office is today. A year later, 2016, I got to accomplish that childhood goal of mine of working in the mayor's office. I worked for Mayor Tom Butt, starting off initially as his director of community engagement, later promoted to be his director of policy and strategy. After about two years in that office, I went over to the city and county of San Francisco, where I went to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and worked on their policy and government affairs team. And for about a year and a half, I wrote, along with my supervisor, all of the water, power and wastewater legislation for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. And I'll speed up the story. So about a year and a half later, I came back here to the city of Richmond and served as Tom Butt's chief of staff for exactly two years. And two years ago, October 4th, 2021, I started as Richmond Promise's second executive director. And it's been a great journey over the last two years, and I was really inspired to make the transition from the mayor's office to Richmond Promise. Just thinking back on my experience growing up in Richmond, having a goal to go to college at a young age for the sake and purpose of really accomplishing my career goals. And just being reminded constantly that there are so many other young people in Richmond who have educational and career goals for themselves. And those young people also deserve to have really strong support systems in our community to help them go off and do the things that they want to do. And I came over to Richmond Promise to strengthen that support system for our entire community.

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Sean Davis CEO and co -founder of The Federalist. Sean I'm tired of losing. I'm sick of losing. I'm a big football fan. It's my weakness. I know I get a lot of hate mail for it. Oh it's woke. I don't care and one of the things about football is if you lose you get fired. At the RNC though if you lose you remain. Explain this to me Sean. I don't know it seems like that's almost a fact of politics anymore. Is it the watching these debates for example. Why on earth are people who hate us and hate people who read us and follow us and hate what we believe. Why are we letting them run these debates and attack our people. It would almost be like giving the Yankees front office the ability to interview anyone who's going to go and play for the Red Sox or like letting the Redskins and I still call them the Redskins and I always will. Letting the Redskins coach like pick who's going to play for the Cowboys. It's so dumb and yet we seem to do it debate after debate and year after year and I simply don't understand it at all. Yeah and so I want to play a piece of tape here. So Ronna McRomney was asked about her involvement in Virginia and it's always deflection. It's blaming other side and Larry O 'Connor who's a total superstar. I really like Larry. He's been in the movement for quite some time. He's so calmly and beautifully asked this question was like hey why wasn't the RNC more involved. His reaction afterwards is just epic. So let's play this piece of tape here. It's always somebody else's fault. It's never the national party's fault. Play cut 155. You don't let people lie about you and let it not let it go unanswered. Let it go unanswered and our candidates have got to do this. You can walk and chew gum at the same time. You can go and say this is where I stand. The Democrats are lying and now let's talk about crime, schools, border, fentanyl, and national security. I just want to clarify one quick thing though. The RNC had no involvement in these elections in Virginia per Governor Youngkin's request. We not well we were told in the summer they didn't need us that they had all the money and they were good. So now we've learned that the Virginia GOP chair Rich Anderson says that he asked the RNC to match the Democrats with one million dollars of a late cash infusion into the state. The RNC the only excuse they have is they can't raise money but that was supposed to be an thing. honest She said well we have no money but you're not raising any money because donors don't trust you the grassroots don't trust you. Sean help me understand. Yeah you've got two jobs as a as a party leader. You raise money and you set up state -by -state infrastructure so that the party can succeed which means by the way getting out to vote and setting up get out to vote infrastructure. So your your job is to supposed to raise a truckload of money and you're supposed to set up everything so that we can match the other side match the Democrats and how they get out the vote how they do ballot chase and all that. I've seen like I don't pay attention all that much to the fundraising so I won't I won't comment on that but it's been almost four years since a completely absurd election in 2020 when the Democrats just ran circles around us in in their absentee ballot chase their mail -in chase. I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence and that in states where we really need to win like Arizona and Georgia that either the state party or the national party is doing much of anything to make sure the Dems don't run in 2024 the exact same playbook they ran against us in 2020. So I'm I'm honestly kind of befuddled I feel like I'm watching office space watching the Bob's interview the employees and thinking what would you say you do here because I can't figure it out. So moving forward here Sean let's emphasize on the NBC news thing so we're after a very disappointing night and then Lester Holt and Welker are cross -examining our candidates just I want just the most objective way you could look at it what candidate do you think separated themselves from the other and who do you think missed an opportunity at that debate? Oh I thought Hveke was awesome I love how he came right out of the gate and trashed the moderators and basically said you're a whole bunch of Russian collusion hoaxers like who do you think you are that's how you handle these moderators and and I think Newt Gingrich was the one who who provided a perfect model for this he did it in during the 2012 primary where every time he got a question in one of these debates from a total left -wing hack masquerading as a journalist he just took him to town so you know your premise is garbage you're full of crap I think you're liars and here's what I'm going to talk about instead of the uh was fantastic um it's hard for me to say who the loser was in these because they kind of feel like loser debates to me and in the first place it's like watching the kids table so um I think the whole debate thing in it in and of itself we need to have a discussion about um but but I thought Hveke and the way he handled the moderators was great and I wish every single Republican from now until forever would treat these hack propagandists the exact same way. So I totally agree and I'll just say this you know Ron DeSantis received the first question and he gave his kind of typical and by the way he's the best governor in America I want everyone to be very clear I get hate mail when I say that Ron DeSantis remains the best governor in America he's not a good presidential candidate he's running a poor campaign it's the brutal honest truth and it's hard to watch he gives this fine answer you know I'm Ron DeSantis and people can't pay for gas and bah bah bye feel your pain yeah whatever Ron how awesome you were just you it was like a t -ball you could have went right after NBC news you could have just used them as the villain and the vague kind of picked up you know the trillion dollar bill that was laying right there and he called for Rana's resignation on top of it it was Rana's resignation the RNC is a bunch of losers we have a culture of losing and NBC news you guys are the complete worst and he got the headlines honestly he got the headlines across the head you know across the board and people really appreciate it because they want a fighter so let me ask you uh kind of shifting gears here Sean Joe Manchin not running for the senate the significance of this and how should we think about a potential no labels candidacy that is bubbling up with Millard Willard Mitt Romney and Mr. Manchin yeah so I got a kick out of Manchin's press release that he put out and said you know I've accomplished what I want to do in my career and I'm very proud of what I've done and and I have hopes of doing other things buddy you're retiring and not running again because you were going to get your butt kicked because you were Joe Biden's little laugh dog when you were supposed to be representing uh West Virginia voters so I think we need to be honest about why he's not going to be a senator again and it's because no one in his own state likes him the people who know him best don't want him as their senator anymore and and that's why he's not going to be running again so you bring up Mitt Romney uh man they are they are birds of a feather in that thing Mitt Romney's only the only consistent thing he has done his entire career in politics is run he gets in once and then he does such a poor job that everyone in the state hates him so he can't run again so he just finds like a new state to run you know he was a one -term governor in Massachusetts he got smoked in the presidential so he decided to move to Utah and run for senate there and no one likes him there anymore because he's a jerk uh and so what does he have left to do the only thing that Joe Manchin has left to do which is avoid any actual real job and just stay in politics and find a bunch of left -leaning voters who pretend they're independent but you can bilk and make a living off of so that's what's happening with Joe Manchin and I can't take this no label stuff seriously at all it's just a grift for a bunch of idiots who are hated by the left and hated by the right don't want to get a real job and have no home to go to go back to by the way Federalist you guys do great work it's really amazing just 30 seconds rip on the Federalist how are things going there you guys are one of the most important outlets in the conservative movement well you're very kind to say that thank you um the Federalist is uh it's an online media publication we do a lot of fantastic commentary original reporting our editor -in -chief is Molly Hemingway who literally wrote the book on on the rigged election of 2020 we unmasked the Russia collusion hoax we unmasked the Kavanaugh rape hoax and unlike a lot of many other publications that pretend to be on the right we actually love conservatives and we we love our readers and we love our voters and we

for you and we have a video to accompany it in a second will John Fetterman cost Joe Biden the election divisions among democrats over Israeli -Palestinian conflict have highlighted the fault with lines in the party John Fetterman's actions are unlikely to sway the presidential election Pennsylvania however it does show that there are fault lines in the democrat party first of all I'm not a fan of John Fetterman but the guy is a master class troll every republican could take a class in how to troll like John Fetterman is basically if reddit became a U .S. senator I don't know if you saw this video but it's just you know you have this guy that looks like cyclops walking you know in a hoodie with the Israeli flag walking did you see this video on the funniest thing I've ever seen and all these people are getting arrested honestly I respect that level of game and this his base he's trolling so Sean you know let's broaden this a little bit outside of just Fetterman doing the trolling is this which is um the fault lines the democrat party over Israel the Palestine issue I don't want to overplay this I think this is the most divided I've seen the democrats in recent memory am I right on saying that Sean I think you are and I think it explains why the institutional left why Joe Biden and the party leadership uh walk on eggshells on this issue which really shouldn't be a difficult issue um you know people shouldn't be rolling into Israel and murdering babies and raping people and filming it and bragging about it that's bad I feel like anyone who has a soul understands that's bad but unfortunately there's a significant segment of the left the far left um it hates Israel hates Jews and when they see party leadership uh like Joe Biden and anyone else uh say common sense things uh about Israel they lose their minds and that that explains everything about why the democrats are handling this as poorly as they are is it Joe Biden is terrified that he's going to lose the presidential election because he's going to lose Michigan because he's going to lose Dearborn Michigan that's that big thing explained everything it's everything that's going on it has nothing to do with principle they're just scared about what their loony left is going to do to them if they don't kowtow to Hamas yeah and it's just but also beyond that Sean there are radicalized white liberals that care about the Gaza issue as well it's not just the Muslim vote right this could impact on their college campus enthusiasm and you play that in with some Jill Stein Cornell West I mean there are serious fault lines in this forced democrat coalition oh absolutely the the hardcore uh white left uh is is every bit as anti -semitic as the uh the bread by the way in in left wing run universities who view the entire world through this oppressor oppressed colonialist victim uh perspective and so yeah your your most rabid anti -semites often on college campuses are these hardcore left -wing white radicals it's totally bizarre but if you watch the media you watch the media the only anti -semites on earth are on the right which is absurd if you have eyes and ears and a brain because it's clearly concentrated on the left final question Sean your just gut reaction Tucker Carlson vice president for Donald Trump I love it I love Tucker uh I think it'd be great it'd be great for America um he's one of the only people who who says all the things that we all think but aren't allowed to say he actually comes out and says it and uh I love him I think it'd be awesome I think we would win especially in a multi -candidate race we're gonna keep on building it out Sean thanks so much appreciate it thank you sir nobody Tucker is better in front of the camera than Tucker you're not gonna outwit him could you just imagine Tucker in a debate Tucker versus Cami Kamala Harris versus Tucker Tucker is ridiculously alert he's been harassed constantly and in an internet age as Joe Rogan famously said Tucker Carlson was built for the internet no personal scandals his laugh alone we know this at Turning Point USA you can you could fill up a room if you just announced Tucker so let's pretend Trump has to go to Fulton County and Jack Smith and he's tied up in all this court stuff wouldn't it make sense to have a vice president who could draw big crowds and draw media attention especially in a multi -candidate race everybody you want to win younger voters especially younger men Tucker Carlson you would win early 30 -somethings you would win the Rogan bros you would win the Andrew Tate people and honestly I think you'd win a lot of suburban women a lot of moms like Tucker they really do Tucker's smart he's well before I'll use it again the more he's attacked the stronger he gets they've tried to take Tucker out every possible way the government spied on him illegally Tucker doesn't care he's in a political moment that we're in doesn't that make sense I want to tell you about the Herzog Foundation we are partnering with them on some exciting stuff for years I've been talking about our nation's public schools and how they've been captured by progressive ideologues

.com that's HerzogFoundation .com Joining us now is the legend Benny Johnson Benny is best known by hosting a legend you are a legend no no no I don't just I just don't throw praise unless it's earned okay I got to tell the whole story here and we'll get through it and Benny of course hosts the Benny show he's amazing we've done some really fun stuff at Turning Point USA and continue to and so but he's best he will be best when known the history books are written for being a debate coach so here I am about to take the stage at Freedom Night our Turning Point USA event and my phone is lighting up Vivek goes after the RNC Vivek goes I say what is going on because here I kind of put in the back of my mind I was like whatever you know you and Vivek were like doing somersaults off of jet skis or something you're like we're debate prepping running through the woods or I was like all right okay whatever and then as soon as I saw Vivek go after NBC News I said Benny it's Benny tell us the story Benny okay so what do I do professionally well like this has been something that I've had a tough time a question I've had a tough time answering my entire life I do pattern recognition and energy energy right like where is the base what is our energy what are the what are the patterns of the things that we hate the very most well we we hate an RNC that doesn't listen to us we hate a Republican party that won't build the wall that won't deliver for the base that delivers election wins for the RNC it is not the RNC that wins elections it is us who gets out and votes but we also hate the corporate press and so why don't we bundle both those two things into criticism of an RNC that is siding with NBC News to host a debate and ask the questions why are these debate hosts allowed to one rig another debate against Republicans why is the RNC celebrating NBC News as a debate partner when they went with Hunter Biden's laptop disinformation Russia disinformation against President Trump kneecap President Trump's why would we allow that like how like how cucked are we and how embarrassing is it for all of us that that we have to say this is our Republican party and why doesn't Rana just resign do us all a favor and simply resign and so I all I did all I did was bring those concerns to the person who I was making a documentary with that day the vague and um you know compliments to the vague he sort of so let's absorb them and and let's show the clip here so what with it because because it really was the shot heard around the world it was one of the most viral debate moments in the history of debates because Vivek said what we were all thinking Rana has a 99 disapproval rating every base every every base member all the donors I talked to they want her gone it is it transcends economic lines state lines nobody likes her unless they're on the payroll right and yet Vivek is the only one that and then NBC News on top of it this is behind the cut one fifty four because these snooty the snooty like uh persnippity moderators to be compared to Greg Gutfeld and then it'll throw off it'll throw them off their game so bad because you'll be like you you you people are clowns to us right like our base doesn't like you and it's nothing personal it's just you've earned it right you've lied to them that's right yeah yes so why are we yep be such a broken system now I want to brag on the vague because we're going to play some more here how many times Benny how many times have you and I texted or you know said good ideas to congressmen and senators they said yeah yeah they don't listen to us credit to Vivek for also being open -minded right that's a big deal that's exactly right and also Vivek who's certainly not short of podcast bookings said why isn't Elon Musk and Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson hosting debate why isn't Charlie Kirk hosting a debate Charlie why aren't you have you been asked by the RNC to host a debate no I have been attacked by the RNC in the last couple weeks definitely not asked to host the debate but I I'm I'm thankful to even be included in that list that's that's very sweet but no what but what would like why not I mean that's in the little that's in the documentary that we put up we put up a 30 -minute documentary about that debate preparation which really was just us having a conversation right like energy absorption like like where's the base right now what do they want to hear because as much as we want to talk about the number of naval ships and Hugh Hewitt know how many ships do we got like people are really concerned about other issues and specifically inside of the party like you shouldn't get rewarded for lying to us and that's what the Republican party just said they rewarded Kristen Welker and NBC News who lied to us for three years and kneecapped President Trump who we put in office in spite of them trying to rig the 2016 election we put President Trump in office and they destroyed arguably his first term based on a lie and they have never apologized they have never said they were wrong they they then get rewarded by our own RNC and it allows me to ask the question again and again how cucked are we if we can't say you get no debates until you apologize to our base for lying to us about the Russian collusion hoax then we really don't have a party and so it was refreshing to see somebody actually say that from the stage and then to call for Rana to resign which by the way you want to talk about moving the Overton window because I you know you know me Benny I I pick fights all the time and I've been kind of like beating the drum you know why is Rana Mcromany still in there you know in our little corner here and you know we're having fun and next thing you know boom Vivek goes on stage it's like yeah why are you in charge exactly and who are you and it was I mean now it's mainstream completely mainstream here's cut 166 Benny did a documentary with Vivek before the debate here is the conversation behind the scenes of Vivek deciding he will call for Rana to resign play cut 166.

A highlight from SEC GARY GENSLER CALLED OUT FOR CRYPTO FAILURES!!
"The SEC is having trouble hiring crypto experts, you don't say? And SEC Commissioner Mark Ueda is calling out the agency on their lack of rules and regulations around the crypto industry. Also the UK has released their staple coin regulation ban, and a bunch of NFT goers at the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT convention went blind? Let's break it down. Welcome to the Thinking Crypto podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. Well folks, we've got a report here from Jeff Roberts, who is a crypto editor at Fortune magazine. He said the SEC is having trouble hiring crypto experts because of a rule they must sell all their crypto. He said, would make more sense to allow staff to hold a modest amount. This would also make them better at their job. So the SEC unbelievably is saying you have to sell all your crypto, right? It's not that they have to sell all their crypto, they should obviously have to disclose it and they should understand the technology and be able to use it and test it out. But of course we're dealing with scumbag regulator, Gary Gensler, who's making up all kinds of buddies can come in and take over. Matt Hogan of Bitwise, who I've had on the podcast quite often, he weighed in on the matter. He said, an obvious but unspoken implication of this is that the SEC will be staffed by people who dislike crypto. The only people with crypto expertise and a willingness to divest 100 % of their crypto are deep seated skeptics. This rule enforces a strong bias in hiring. Paul Grewal of Coinbase said, believe it or not, as a federal magistrate judge, I used to have a traffic ticket docket, think national parks, defense bases, VA hospitals. Imagine if the parties had learned a person deciding their auto accident case was forbidden from driving a car. Great points here. Now, Mark Ueda, who's one of the sitting SEC commissioners, and he is a Republican, him and Hester Peirce have both been vocal critics of the agency and on their lack of rules and clarity around crypto, also against many of the enforcement actions. So here's the headline, SEC should consider proposing rules to regulate crypto, Republican commissioner says. So I'm glad Mark Ueda is coming out and saying these things because it can't just be Hester Peirce. And right now, for the most part, it seems like Hester Peirce is outnumbered. So Mark needs to be more vocal, I'm glad he is speaking up. So here's a quote from him, unfortunately, the SEC did not take this approach and instead is pursuing a case by case approach through enforcement actions. As a result, it will take years to reach any type of legally binding precedent as matters will need to wind their way through the courts before reaching the court of appeals level, Ueda said on Monday in prepared remarks in London. So I hope he continues to speak on this, to show the agency is not in a good place, they are not providing clear guidance, they are operating by regulation by enforcement, which is really asinine. While the rest of the world is moving ahead, providing clear regulations. Now Eleanor Terrett of Fox Business highlighted the following, she tweeted, the House Appropriations GOP financial services and general government bill is up for vote before the rules committee at 4 p .m. Eastern before it heads to the floor. It includes an amendment from Tennessee Congressman Representative Tim Burchett to reduce the salary of SEC Chair Gary Gensler to one dollar. It also includes an amendment to defund the SEC for crypto enforcement. So shout out to Representative Tim Burchett, who's bringing the fire here on Gary Gensler. And we got to do these things, folks, to put some pressure. Gary Gensler should be fired and the SEC needs to be revamped. Congressman Warren Davidson has put out a bill, of course, that would revamp the entire structure of the SEC to make it less political and to make it more efficient. So let's see where this goes. But I love that these bills are coming out more pressure on scumbag regulator Gary Gensler. Now here's an interesting update around the Federal Reserve, and it just speaks to government and the lack of knowledge and education in government about crypto. So Matthew Seigel, who's head of crypto research at VanEck, he said, I met a Federal Reserve crypto researcher at a conference last week. He doesn't own any digital assets. He's not allowed to and didn't understand the difference between an exchange and a custodian. Folks, I'm face palming right now. I know you can't see me. And if you're listening on a podcast platform, trust me, I'm face palming right now. He doesn't understand the difference between an exchange and a custodian. God help us, right? These are the people who are trying to regulate crypto and putting out rules and recommendations and papers and so forth. It's unbelievable. But I know there are folks working to help bring education to Congress, and that is blockchain association, the Chamber of Digital Commerce and so forth. So we'll see, folks. We got a lot of work to do. This is why we have to use social media to our advantage to keep tweeting out, sharing the facts and exposing lies and false information like from the likes of Elizabeth Warren and others. Now, the juxtaposition of that is the UK's Bank of England releases stablecoin regulation plan. Remember, the UK had passed crypto regulations, so did the EU. So the US is lagging behind. And folks, stablecoins are going to be part of the token economy and will be a big part of how people transact. So there needs to be regulations. And we're seeing here in the United States, the SEC sending a subpoena to PayPal over their stablecoin, right? It's unbelievable what's happening. So the United Kingdom Central Bank, the Bank of England, has released a plan to govern the stablecoin market. The BOE and the Financial Conduct Authority plan to follow the rules released by the UK government last week to oversee the digital asset industry. As per the UK government's proposal, regulations for fiat backed stablecoins will begin in early 2024. As per the paper, the BOE will regulate systematic stablecoins while the FCA will govern the larger crypto market. UK Prime Minister Rishi Sanak had announced that he wants the nation to become a crypto hub, introducing clear rules for digital assets and crypto firms falls within the UK's goals. The UK's latest plan follows the European Union and Japan's similar moves. Folks, I love that crypto is not a specific asset class to the United States. So even though we're dealing with scumbag regulator Gary Gensler and all kinds of idiots in the government who have not educated themselves, the market will continue to grow and expand globally. So we can at least put our hope in that. Now we got some really weird news coming out from the Bored Ape Yacht Club and full disclosure, I don't own any Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs, but apparently they had an NFT convention and there was some UV lights and folks who were blasted by this prolonged UV light went blind apparently. So, I mean, this is just wild, right? I don't know what to make of it, but just so you guys know, I don't know if any of you went to any of these conventions or this convention, I should say, but, or, you know, somebody who went to this convention, but this is just some wild news coming out of 2023. So heads up on that folks, I want to end it by highlighting our sponsor and that is Uphold, which is a great crypto exchange this month, they're giving away 50 ,000 XRP. All you got to do is complete at least $20 in trades to be eligible to win and Uphold is a great platform. I trust them. I've been using them since 2018. So if you'd like to learn more, please visit the link in the description. Thank you.

Earn great pay, outstanding federal benefits, and up to $20 ,000 in recruitment incentives. Learn more online at CBP .gov slash career slash USBP. Welcome into The Mike Gallagher Show week in review podcast. Great to have you here. It is Friday, November the third. It's another week chock full of breaking news. Let's begin with this shocker. Over a hundred college professors at Columbia University in New York City signing a letter in support of pro -hamas protesters on campus. The anti -semitism we're seeing in the streets of America, particularly on college campuses, is astounding and we tackled it this week front and center. Over a hundred Columbia University professors signed a letter yesterday defending students who support Hamas. Can you imagine a college professor supporting monsters who put babies in ovens and and cooked them alive? Can you imagine over a hundred Columbia University professors, Ivy League staffers writing a letter supporting the students who defend Hamas? You'd send your kid to college at Columbia, you'd be out of your mind. You would be out of your mind. If you've got a son or daughter who wants to go get some hugely successful career and they think Columbia University is the path to take, you'd be nuts to let your kid go to Columbia, much less pay for it. And donors, you would donate to Columbia University? Over a hundred professors defending students who are supporting bloodthirsty animalistic terrorists. They put babies in ovens. They raped women and broke their legs before murdering them. They chopped soldiers' heads off. They chopped babies' heads off. And these moron professors, and they are morons, they are ignorant fools, wrote a letter demanding for support the moron students defending terrorism. Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has a brand new speaker. He's Representative Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana. Democrats are none too happy about this guy. In fact, they are literally denouncing his Bible -believing Christianity. Wait till you hear what MSNBC personality and former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had to say about Mike Johnson's religious beliefs. Does the Bible inform your worldview? The new Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, a little -known congressman from Louisiana, has had the audacity to admit that for him the Bible informs his worldview. Jen Psaki was the White House Press Secretary. She now has her own show on MSNBC, and she is undoubtedly very popular among the left. I want you to hear Jen Psaki expressing her shock and disgust and mortification at the newly elected Speaker of the House, admitting that he's a Bible -believing Christian. So let's take a few minutes to talk about this new speaker. First glance, Mike Johnson does seem fine, fine -ish. Conservative, yes, but he once started a civility caucus with a Democrat. And I mean, if nothing else, he wears a suit and has glasses. How threatening can this guy actually be? Well, he gave us all a little clue as to how he would govern in an interview this week. I am a Bible -believing Christian. Someone asked me today in the media, they said, it's curious. People are curious. What does Mike Johnson think about any issue under the sun? I said, well, go pick up a Bible off your shelf and read it. That's, that's my worldview. You heard that right. The Bible doesn't just inform his worldview. It is his worldview. In fact, during his first speech in his new job, Johnson suggested that his election as speaker was an act of God. Talk about a bit of a humble brag there. So what exactly has God apparently called on Mike Johnson to do? Well, his views on policy are essentially what you'd expect from a religious fundamentalist. They're more divisive than they are divine. She's threatened. They're threatened by a religious fundamentalist like Mike Johnson. And you heard what she, the way she described it. It's threatening. We should be scared because he's a Christian. Now you just heard that, right? I mean, I'm not hallucinating, right? I just played a clip from MSNBC and she's got some MSNBC bona fides. She was the White House press secretary. She's no slouch in terms of elocution. She knows what she's saying. She forms the word. She's reading those words on a teleprompter. Let me again repeat what Jen Psaki just told her national audience. We should be scared of Mike Johnson because he's a Christian. Let that sink in. This is the Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review podcast. I hope you'll subscribe. Don't miss any of the great content that we produce every single day. If you missed anything, you'll catch up with us. The Israeli consulate in New York City invited the media to a special event. They shared firsthand evidence of the brutality of Hamas in Israel. This is very difficult to hear, but we can't turn away. We must be aware of what actually happened on October 7th in Israel. Kelly Jane Torrance writes about it. None of us wanted to see such sites, this person writes, but none of us would give up the opportunity. The world needs to know what happened. Journalists, about 20 of us had to leave our cell phones and Apple watches at the door. Some of the footage had never been released and Israeli authorities had their reasons for showing it only to select reporters and some select others like Joe Biden. They're concerned about the feelings of the families involved. They also don't want such horror and humiliation broadcast worldwide. One retired major general and reservist, Mickey Edelstein said, we have values. This reporter said, human beings still have the capacity to shock if one can call Hamas human beings. I will long be haunted by what I saw. The footage eases you into things, she writes, a little. Terrorists fire at motorists on the highway. They enter a kibbutz and blow an ambulance's tires first. They shoot a dog who reminds, who remains shaking on the street. They light a home on fire. Then, then they start entering the houses. Israel collected video from a wide variety of sources, public closed circuit TV, traffic cameras, dash cams of terrorists and of victims, as well as their social media posts and messages at home. You can hear the murderers breathe heavily as they nervously approach their prey. It was almost impossible to watch the council general admitted afterward. He couldn't even stay for the whole screening. A father tries to get his young children dressed only in underpants safely to a backyard shelter. A grenade lands before he can close the door. He's dead. A terrorist takes the two boys back into the house. The security camera captures their devastation. The blast blinded one boy in an eye, the other falls to the ground, plaintively pleading, why am I alive? Why am I alive? Blood is everywhere. A man with his nose blown off, headless Israeli soldiers, an elderly woman clad only in her brightly colored underwear, never meant to be seen by so many. Piles of bodies surrounded by young men, celebrating, chanting Aluakbar. A broken woman is taken from the back of a Jeep, the rear of her pants covered in blood. We can easily understand what likely happened to her. Young men clamor over trying to get a look inside. Women who were raped had their legs broken, then they were killed. So they were raped, they had their legs broken, and then they were murdered. Many times Kelly Jane Torrance writes, I wanted to look away, but I forced myself not to. We journalists had to see so what happened we could tell the world. Yet here is a line from a CBS news piece written by a journalist who saw the footage, quote, in another clip, a militant stands over a man who appears to have been shot in the gut and hacks at him multiple times with a garden hoe. Interestingly, the words terrorist or terrorism don't appear in this piece. They don't appear in the New York Times report of that screening either. I can tell you it was not a militant who stands over a man. A group of terrorists argue over who gets to behead the man. A Thai worker bleeding profusely from his stomach but still alive. Someone hacks at him repeatedly with a hoe trying to behead him. Every single time the terrorist yells Alua Akbar. That difference in detail is why the consulate staff sat through 45 minutes of misery. They need people to see what happened. Sure, dead babies were found without their heads, but who knows who did the deed, according to journalists from serious publications, supposedly publications. serious She says, the hate I witnessed goes beyond those who entered Israel. A young man uses a dead Israeli woman's phone to call his parents and brag of killing 10 Jews, quote, with my bare hands. He pleads to his father, please be proud of me, dad. That's the culture Israel must fight. Then there's New York City. A day after the screening of this video, thousands of anti -Semites marched into Manhattan via the Brooklyn Bridge after a rally at the Brooklyn Museum. At the front were people holding a banner that read, by any means necessary. This journalist who saw these atrocities committed by these monsters, these savages called Hamas, writes, understand what a sign like that means. These people know what happened October 7th. They're gathering in large numbers in New York and cities around the world, including America, to show their support for the animals who committed these atrocities. They are as bloodthirsty as the heavy breathing terrorists whose voices the people of Israel will never get out of their heads. And that's so important. You must know what pro -Hamas demonstrators are. On the pop culture front, actor Matthew Perry, best known for his role on the sitcom series Friends, passed away at the age of 54. He was found in his hot tub in his Los Angeles home, apparently drowned. A very interesting conversation resulted in vaccines with the shocking death of Matthew Perry. 54 years old, he was one of the stars of Friends. He was found dead in his jacuzzi at his Los Angeles home. And right away, people started rushing in saying he was a big pro -vaccination guy. The anti -vaxxers, as they're known, went bonkers, saying, how does a 54 -year -old guy who was allegedly clean and sober, he had had a lifetime of trouble with drugs and alcohol, apparently, rough life, he had gotten his act together, he wrote a memoir last year, and he was lounging in his jacuzzi, and he died. And so far, the police say, no sign of foul play. There were some prescription drugs found, but no illegal drugs or illicit drugs. And this guy was part of the culture and one of the most successful sitcom actors of all time, and one of the most successful sitcoms of all time, Friends. And apparently, he had his personal assistant go out to run some errands. The assistant came back after a couple hours and found this guy dead in the jacuzzi in the backyard of the pool. A lot of people were tweeting and writing on social media. This is not a conspiracy theory. People are suddenly dying. People are having heart attacks. And they pointed out that Matthew Perry had tweeted out like a year ago, could I be any more vaccinated? Get your shot and then get your shirt. Shop the entire collection. And it was a collection of t -shirts bragging about getting vaccinated. And people were tweeting out things like, do you believe Matthew Perry died from heart issues in his jacuzzi that were caused by him getting so many COVID vaccines? Again, he once promoted a t -shirt that said, could I be any more vaccinated? Well, you know, I know we don't want to open up that whole can of worms again. On the other hand, did you see the story about the new analysis by the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration, said that there may be an increase in the risk of stroke when you get a COVID shot on the same day as when you get certain flu vaccines. A new analysis found the link was clearest in adults over 85. It applied to the Pfizer and Moderna COVID booster vaccines. The FDA said the risk might stem from the flu vaccine alone and be completely unrelated to the COVID shots. I think it's fair to say, and I just want to start right here and say, whether we like it or not, most Americans, I think, and I want you to correct me if you think I've got this wrong, most Americans have a deep distrust over just about any vaccine. There was a horrific incidence of violence this week in New York City. It erupted after an argument between neighbors of a New York City apartment building. It was all captured on closed circuit surveillance video. Maybe you've seen the ghastly video of a neighbor in an apartment building who executed a father and his stepson over a dispute regarding noise. It was all captured on closed circuit surveillance video. It's awful. I don't want to play it. I mean, this guy came with a gun ready to confront this family. There had apparently been a history of arguing between these two tenants of the apartment building, I think it was in Brooklyn, and the family comes out to confront the guy. He's wearing a jacket. He's dressed all in black. And the closed circuit surveillance cameras are just crystal clear. One thing about this closed circuit TVs now, the video quality is as good as anything you see on a TV network. You can get these ring cameras and everything, and they're a real good deterrent, I think, for criminals, because they work well. I've got a whole set of them at a property that I own, and you can see everything. It records automatically. If there's movement, you can set all kinds of settings. Anyway, they had a closed circuit camera in the hallway of this apartment building. This guy's waiting. He's pacing. They're arguing. The dad comes out, and he's very threatening. He's apparently a bodybuilder. The father was this big, hulking, you know, muscular, tall guy. And he storms out with a pair of scissors in his hand, and they're arguing about the noise. And according to news reports, you know what the noise was? The family that the other guy was objecting to, they lived above this guy, and they didn't have carpeting on the floor. So whenever they walked, they were walking on wood floors, and it made a lot of noise, and it just aggravated the guy down below. So the guy down below shows up. He's in the hallway. He's got a jacket on. They're arguing. The family's arguing. The big, you know, bodybuilder is towering over the guy with a pair of scissors. Well, the shorter guy that came up to complain, he pulls out a gun, a handgun. The father immediately retreats. Doesn't matter. This guy starts blasting away. He shoots the dad multiple times. It's all caught on camera. The son, the stepson, tries to get away. He executes the stepson, pumps him full of bullets, and then he goes over to the dad, who's trying to get up. He's fallen by the door and puts a couple more bullets in his head for good measure. I mean, it was a stone cold execution. And there was a big debate on social media about whether or not it was self -defense or not. Well, of course it wasn't self -defense. He executed them. He's arguing with them about noise in an apartment. Now a family is shattered. And the breaking news, the reason I'm telling you this whole story is there is some news. They got the guy. Police shot him at a traffic stop moments ago in Brooklyn. The 47 -year -old suspect, Jason Pass, was in a car when police got a hit on his license plate. They performed a traffic stop, at which point the situation took a violent turn. He charged at the cops with a knife. They shot him. He's been rushed to an area hospital in critical condition. So everybody's lives are... And there's a moral to the story here. And the reason I think it's important to talk about it is more and more people are arming themselves. It's inevitable. Look at the world around us. Listen, I'm starting up the process again here in Florida. Years ago, I got a concealed carry permit course that I took in South Carolina. But you know, it's been years. I was living in New York City. You sure aren't supposed to have a gun in New York. And now that I'm a Florida resident, I'm going to be armed. You were there with Mike Lindell through thick and through thin. You appreciate that Mike has been targeted and they've tried to stop him.

A highlight from Code Carbone Interview - Will Elizabeth Warren Apologize For Crypto FUD? SEC Gary Gensle Coinbase, IRS Rule, US Bitcoin Miners
"Optimism is at an all time high as it relates to the courts and Gary Gensler following the XRP case, following the grayscale decision. People are looking at this like, man, anything can happen. And if Coinbase is going to be successful with their motion to dismiss and they're going to move on from the SEC as enforcement action here, you're going to get a lot of questions in DC.

Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. With me today is Cody Carbone, who is the Vice President of Policy at the Chamber of Digital Commerce. Cody, it's great to have you back on. Tony, thanks so much for having me. Great to be here. So Cody, it's never a dull day with crypto in DC and there's been a lot going on, but I want to start with the digital chamber or the Chamber of Digital Commerce, excuse me, meeting with the Digital Power Network. I saw a lot of tweets and a lot of talks about Bitcoin mining, meeting with different members of Congress. Tell us about that and what the goal of the Digital Power Network is. Yeah, thanks for the opportunity. This is something we're super proud of and excited about, the potential of this new Digital Power Network. So what it is, it's an affiliate of the Chamber of Digital Commerce and people are probably wondering like, why is a digital asset trade association starting an affiliate? Well, as you know, and I know many of your viewers and listeners know, there are a lot of financial services related issues in crypto. We're always tackling what's going on at the SEC, the CFTC, what's happening with the different bills in Congress. Bitcoin miners have a little bit different of an agenda. They have a little bit different of an issue set. And so as we were looking at all the miners, we realized that the best way to serve them is really giving them a dedicated home that just focuses on their issues, focus on the issues related to energy and energy security, to national security, to supply chain. And so we started the Digital Power Network to make sure that we had this dedicated entity that just focuses on advocating for Bitcoin miners. And we started about a few weeks ago. And what you were referring to last week on Capitol Hill was our first introduction to the halls of Congress. And we went and we brought a lot of our miners and met with almost 40 members of Congress, which is awesome. The DPN represents about 50 percent of the U .S. hash rate of mining. So I like to say the largest collective of Bitcoin miners in the United States and that new affiliate will be their advocacy and education home for all things Washington related to their issues. That's great. And to your point, it makes sense to segment the Bitcoin miners because they're a segment of the market or industry is so unique. It's not like other all coin projects and NFTs and DeFi, but it's a lot of energy and job creation locally and getting the infrastructure and all these things together. So that's really awesome. Yeah, I mean, you just said it. You said it best. Energy security, community revitalization, all the jobs that they're bringing into usually these somewhat depressed communities and how they are taking over, you know, former coal plants and fossil fuel plants and truly revitalizing them. And they're creating something great out of it, their energy use, and they're creating Bitcoin. It's pretty awesome to see. And it's awesome that they now have a dedicated home to advocate for them in D .C. Question for you, you know, historically, there's been a lot of pushback on Bitcoin mining because of, you know, the energy FUD and different things that people have brought up over the years. But it seems to be less of that around Bitcoin money. Now, is it because like the work you folks are doing, educating, getting members of Congress up to speed, dispelling incorrect reports and headlines that are based on sensationalism? It seems like there's being more of an embrace around Bitcoin mining, especially in states like Texas. And, you know, I've been talking to various Bitcoin miners and they're expanding across the United States. I like to think so, that it's from our work and it's from the great work of the miners and, you know, kind of dispelling these misconceptions and bad narratives. It's hard to argue with facts. And if you look at the facts, if you were going to remove Bitcoin mining from the United States, it would have virtually zero impact on the climate. The fraction of energy and electricity that Bitcoin miners are using really does not make a difference on the climate, but they are doing really cool things, methane mitigation with using renewable energies. And we talked about already the community revitalization and providing jobs. And so when you lay out, some of the publications we've seen in some of the other sectors, take away those headlines and you look at the facts of what Bitcoin miners are doing for the United States, especially while China has shut down Bitcoin mining, it's hard to argue or come up with any issues related to Bitcoin mining. And that is what our effort is supposed to do is addressing those misconceptions and making sure members of Congress are educated. They're starting to wake up and that's the beauty of it. I saw you met with Pete Sessions, if I'm not mistaken, I had interviewed him a couple of years ago and then also Mike Flood. And did those meetings go well, you know, were they open all those things? They went awesome. Pete Sessions, I saw that interview you did with him a while ago. He is he's a character. He is fun to talk to and he can go on tangents, he is great and he has truly been a champion for Bitcoin mining. It helps that Riot has their Rockdale plant in his district. So he has witnessed firsthand the benefits of Bitcoin mining for the community. And then Congressman Flood, it was interesting. You know, we went in there to advocate for Bitcoin mining and all of a sudden it felt like the tables had been turned and he's advocating for the miners to come to Nebraska. It was like, I see the benefits of this and I've got these young Nebraska kids who are hungry, who want good paying jobs. And the first thing I think of is Bitcoin mining. And we have the cheapest power in the whole country in Nebraska. And we've got a ton of renewable energy because we've got all these data centers coming in to use our cheap power and they're offsetting by putting up wind turbines and hydro dams and nuclear. So Bitcoin miners come to Nebraska. And that was an interesting dynamic you don't usually get in really cool. So the meetings could not have gone better. And both sides of the aisle, truly, Republicans and Democrats were embracing Bitcoin mining. We had a few Democratic offices that said, I had no idea, you know, Bitcoin mining can do all these things. Like I thought Bitcoin mining was hard hats, soot on their face, coal mining. And so if we have any takeaway from the day on the hill with the digital power network, it's, I think mining is just a bad term. And maybe there should be a campaign around addressing that term and trying to change it. Maybe it should be just Bitcoin processing or data processing. I don't know. We can, we'll probably figure that out later on, but we addressed a lot of those misconceptions and we were good. We were happy to see the positive reaction on both sides of the aisle. That's awesome. That's great to hear. And you know, I've spoken to quite a few Bitcoin managers and you know, some of the things they mentioned is that to what we're talking about, bringing jobs back to the United States in a sense, replacing some of the manufacturing jobs that have left the country permanently and which the United States as a macro geopolitical thing is trying to bring back. So it's creating jobs. And I think that's important. So it's a win -win. Absolutely. I mean, you look at some of these communities where they had these smelting plants or these coal plants, when they shut down, all those jobs went away. And then those people, I mean, those were huge job generators for the community and huge revenue generators for the community. Because when you lose those jobs, you lose barbershops, you lose restaurants. And so having these miners go in there and take over some of those plants, doing something good for the economy and the environment, and then also creating jobs, it really revitalizes whole communities. For sure. All right. Let's move ahead to Elizabeth Warren, the wall street journal and crypto fun. Favorite topic. So the wall street journal based on elliptics updated data, they did issue a correction. Some would argue it's not a full correction, but they did address some of the issues. Elizabeth Warren has not issued an apology or retracted any letters. What are you hearing about this? And do you expect her to do anything along those lines? I do not. I think she is a, to her credit, a masterful lobbyist and a masterful messenger and communicator. And when she sees a crisis like what is happening in Hamas and before Hamas, it was North Korea using bitcoins for weapons proliferation, she will use it to her advantage to push her agenda. And that is exactly what is happening here. So there was a hearing last week in Senate banking on illicit finance and terrorist financing. And this was shortly after the elliptic statement came out. It was when a lot of the community started to push back on the facts and the data from that initial wall street journal article. And instead of showing any kind of contrition or retraction in her testimony, Senator Warren doubled down and said, this is a problem and we need to address it. The only way address it is my bill. If you look at her bill, it doesn't do anything to address it. It does nothing to solve the terrorist financing aspects of what is happening. And we agree from the chamber side, and I think the entire industry would agree, there is a problem here. We don't want any terrorists or any bad actors using cryptocurrency because it makes all of us look bad. And we only want this to be used safely by consumers who want to solve problems with the technology or they're looking for a new financial system. So will she retract? Absolutely not. She's building a coalition and she thinks she's right. The hurdle that we need to get over with Senator Warren and some people that signed on to her coalition and her legislation is that they still don't believe digital assets, cryptocurrency, blockchain technology should exist. That's the hurdle we're trying to get over is, there's a lot of people in government in Washington now and say, okay, it's here. I might not like it, but I think it should exist and we should regulate it. Those people are easier to work with. The people who say, I don't like it. It should never exist. Send it overseas. That's the Warren camp. And those are the people that are signing onto her bill and her letter. And those are the people that are harder to educate. Yeah. I find that really incredible that they don't ... This is not 2009, 2010. We're not in 2017 where you could have made those statements and maybe had some credibility, some validity to them. But in 2023, where BlackRock is filing for a Bitcoin spot ETF and all these other countries are opening up finance and regulations, the EU passing regulations, they're actually saying that. Is that a ... I know how politics works. Is that purely the lack of education or is that grandstanding optics and things like that? I think from, I would say 90 % of the people who are signing on to Senator Warren's effort, lack of education. It is, I call them blank slate members of Congress. They have no understanding of the technology. And to their credit, they're very busy. And the only time that they read about the technology is usually in a headline. And so they probably only associate Bitcoin cryptocurrency digital assets with FTX and now Hamas. And if that's all you know about this technology, you're probably like, oh, I don't like this either. Why should this exist? And that is where Senator Warren is a masterful lobby or be like, I agree, I've got this bill, sign on and we can get rid of it. I think that's the lack of education component. I think for Senator Warren and some of the other members of Congress who are clearly more sophisticated on this, but they don't believe it should exist. They viewed digital assets as a threat to the US regulatory system. They believe giving people an opportunity to have a new trustless financial services ecosystem where they can transact peer to peer without relying on the government or these super regulated intermediaries is a direct threat to everything they've been building, creating more and more financial regulations. They don't like that. That scares the heck out of them when their solution for most things is more government. There needs to be more government involvement. And so when they see something that's popping up and their constituents are getting interested in it and big institutions are getting interested in it, and it is the antithesis of everything they're advocating for, more government regulation, more and more and more, they see it as a threat and they want it gone. And that's the mindset I think that Senator Warren and some of the other more sophisticated members of Congress who truly don't like this stuff and want to remove it. That's where they're coming from. So obviously the Chamber and many other crypto advocacy groups are working on educating and doing a lot of groundwork in DC to try to change that. But how can the listeners, the average Joe and Jane who are listening, how can they help steer, help you guys steer the ship in the right direction with these people who are working with Elizabeth Warren? There's one way. It's really simple. You have to make your interest in this technology known. You have to call your members of Congress. It is really easy for a member, especially those like that 90 percent of blank slate members to ignore something they're not hearing about from their constituents. If their constituents start calling them and saying, hey, I have Bitcoin or I have XRP or I have Ethereum and I really like I'm using this stuff and it's helping me send money to my family overseas or name what problem and then name a solution that the technology is helping you solve that problem. Raise that with your member of Congress. It's hard to ignore that. Now, when you're not hearing anything from your constituents and this seems so foreign to you, it's very easy to ignore because then all it seems to them is, oh, it's this kid billionaire who committed this scam or it's this terrorist group in the Middle East who's doing this. And my constituents don't need any part of this. Let's remove it. That's when it's easier to ignore. So call your member of Congress, educate them, tell them why you're using this technology and start and really once you start to light up those phones in the and they'll answer. I promise you, the staff will answer your calls if you call them. They always do write letters, call, visit the district offices, tell them why it is so important that we keep this technology in the United States and why you're using it. That makes a world of difference and will help all of the different advocacy groups in D .C. Hmm. Yeah, that's that's a great call to action. So everybody listening, get on those phones, email.

In this house, wherever the rules are disregarded, chaos and mob rule. It has been said today, where is bravery? I'll tell you where bravery is found and courage is found. It's found in this minority who has lived through the last year of nothing but rules being broken, people being put down, questions not being answered, and this majority say, be damned with anything else. We're going to impeach and do whatever we want to do. Why? Because we won an election. I guarantee you, one day you'll be back in the minority and it ain't gonna be that fun. Hey everybody, welcome back to the podcast. Today is a learning lesson. Today is a day in which I want you to take close attention to what could come if we do not get a handle on our understanding of economic situations. We have a guest today who's wrote in the book about street economics, understanding the basics that capitalism is a good thing, it's not a bad thing, actually going to work means something. These are all kinds of things that we need to actually get a hold of, and if we don't get a hold of them soon, then we're going to continue to spiral economically. For those people out there saying, well, the government will help us, the government will help us, folks realize the government only gets money out of your pocket. They're only helping other people with money that they either print or get it out of your pocket. Got to get a better handle on this because if we don't, this is going to lead us down a path in which many places in the world are already going to. Axel Kaiser today is here with his book on street economics. You will not want to miss this, some good stuff. This will be an episode to share with young people. They need to hear this. They're not hearing it anywhere else, so they need to understand this and hear this, and then just check it out. All I ask is listen to the podcast and then go check it out.

One of the things you hear me on the podcast always talk about is people not understanding basic economics. Basic economics are the fact that free market works, capitalism is a really good plan. It's ripping more people out of poverty than anything else. But we have a lot of people, and especially younger generations, who are losing that economic purpose. Today, I promise you we're not going to be boring. I promise you we're going to get right to the point because I have Axel Kaiser here on the discussion of a new book that they have discussing economics and what is going on. It's called The Street Economist, 15 Economic Lessons Everyone Should Know out of a Republic Book Publisher.
"congressman" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Mike Johnson, who is the vice chairman of House Republicans. There's a great job. Congressman joins us rejoins us. He was with us recently. Congressman welcome back to the program. Tell us about this story. The FBI saw it to develop sources in Catholic churches, is it fair to say that possibly on Easter Sunday, the FBI had informants in plants at Catholic mass services across the country. It's a great question, Charlie, and we don't know. I mean, this sounds like something that's surreal, something that's made up, but we have the documents. We have whistleblowers within the FBI that have given us the information. And we know that the Richmond field office of the FBI. This is where it was originally begun. They sought to reach out to Catholic clergy and church leadership to recruit sources inside the churches so that they could monitor and report on their parishioners. It sounds, but that's what the government is engaged in. The FBI generated this memo in the Richmond field office, it was distributed to field offices around the country and Jim Jordan and I on the web position committee and House judiciary committee are pursuing this vigorously because we are demanding to answers to see how far and wide this went, how much damage was done. We just don't know yet. So, I mean, our audience is fired up over this and many other topics. An idea that has been floated is called fencing off the money, congressman, which for example, you might say, okay, we might not be able to close the FBI, nor do I know if they do some good work, obviously. But I mean, a lot of it should be shut down as a political operation. But fencing off the money would be something closer to, hey, all right, Christopher wray, you used the private jet to go to the adirondacks. That's going to be put on pause until we get actual answers and people are fired. Are these ideas being floated by you guys in House leadership at this time? Because at least that could put their the line items that the agency heads care about the most and you actually might be able to get answers. Yes. I mean, the short answer is yes. We talked about a couple weeks ago, you know, our hands are tied in some respect. We're just as frustrated as everybody else believe me. We've been chomping at the bit for the last couple of years to get a shot at this oversight, which is a critical constitutional responsibility that we have. You know. But we just got a majority in January and we just got subpoenaed power later that month. And so we're only a couple of months to three months into this right now. We're getting it up as quick as we can. Now, we can investigate, we can uncover these abuses and lay it bare for the American people to judge for themselves and then ultimately we have to reform these practices in abuses to make sure they never happen again,

"To do the same thing because make no mistake about it. As much as I think frigging Joe Manchin is a fucking worm. Joe Manchin will absolutely do what the people tell him to do when he thinks that they're the majority. And if the majority of people come out and start letting him know, you need to frigging vote to kill the filibuster so we can save roe V wade because you freaking are the one who voted to confirm Kavanaugh, you know, and all that bullshit. It's part of, this is part of your mistake, Manchin. So call him out on it. Yes, I totally agree. And I want to give credit where credit is due. To Michael Moore. Where he tweeted this out. He said, this is my theater in Michigan. We're actually showing Jurassic World a dominion, but we thought the other dinosaurs were more frightening and deserved their own marquee. So they changed it to be Supreme Court Shane. It's too funny, right? Absolutely. It's great. Spot on. You know, you know, you know, I got to give credit to these people that are, because it really seems, well, here's the one thing I made. As much as it seems like, everything's going on. Everyone's upset. I just read on The Huffington Post that the Republicans are picking up more seats. No, they're saying that we're going to lose the house. And you know, it's absolutely sad. You know, I'm glad that West Virginia lost one of their three. But it's sad. It is. Check this out, I'm major. Alec Baldwin tweeted this one. Our Instagram, this one. Personal opinion. On the outcome in roe versus wade and my answer to you is that I do not reverse this way it is an important question about the Supreme Court. Oh, I guess you can't see it. I guess you can't see that. Hold on a second. Hold on. Many times over the past 45 years. Hold on. Let me get this because calls for its overruling have never ceased, but that doesn't mean that roe should be overruled. All right, here you go. Sorry about that. Here we go. So check this out, army major. This is all of these freaking liars. Here we go. I have this day an opinion, a personal opinion. On the outcome and roe versus wade, and my answer to you is that I do not. Roe versus wade is an important president of the Supreme Court. A good judge will consider it as precedent worthy as treatment of precedent like any other. It has been reaffirmed many times over the past 45 years. Ro is not a super precedent because calls for its overruling have never ceased, but that doesn't mean that roe should be overruled. What do you think about that army major? I think that integrity matters, and I think that everyone of them should be called back in. I think that they should be removed. They lied. They lied. There's no other way around it. They lied. And you know what? Remember, if a person lies to Congress, you're going to prison. I think it's a I think land of Congress is a 5 year as like a 5 year minimum. So they lie. They're Supreme Court. If we can't have integrity on the highest court of the land, then we have no integrity in this country. That's just the way that it is. And you know, yeah, and the only problem is. Congressman Ted Liu said that he would need two thirds of the vote to get him out. Yeah. Absolutely..

"Any androgynous angry bloggers in. Now you didn't you. Didn't you saw folks that look like they came from right next door and they look like they're from right next door. How could they be dangerous. Good point very good point very important point to make that they could be right next store but the one thing. I i think the one thing that we can all come together on uniting moment was everybody's hatred of mike pence. Yeah well that was certainly a problem for he and his family who had to flee and take cover but you were even know why i hate him. Maybe it's because his hair is so perfect. Yeah yeah and he's said bit. He's a bit bias. I think a lot of us would like to see him. Stoned to death. You know well you have. You have some very Some very strong opinions. And that's your right. Is it an american citizen. That's one of the things that's great about. This country is certainly is our is our freedom of of speech. So do you look at the media as an enemy at you. Look at the is the media. The fourth estate is the media important in this country. And is that connected to free speech in your mind. Or i think anything. That isn't coming from rupert. Murdoch needs to really be questioned because rupert is the ultimate patriot. He has turned this country around. He is turned us from a group of people that questioned authority to a group of people that salute and earn you know. There's no exam for being a congressman or a public servant. There's no you know their tests to get a license to be a barber but there are no tests or exams or process of that nature for the qualifications of of being in congress or serving the public in that way. Should there be yes. I think we need a putting contest Most of us are golfers. Some of us are terrible golfers. Some of us don't even golf. Why would you enter into politics. If you're have no intention of going golfing that makes that makes zero sense to me. But you know i don't think you need to know about history world history. What countries north of us. What countries south of us. Who cares where america we make the news. We are the news. I think that's of the you know. What makes them making america. Great again is is more of a More of Being concerned about ourselves and not about other countries we've seen we've seen the beauty of where that leads. yes. America is number one. Let's get it in writing. Let's make ourselves trophy. Let's take a picture of ourselves. Let's do three hundred thirty million person. Selfie that's a idea they you said for your entire career and you say this time and time again. It's one of the quotes that you have. The you're quoted most often is saying that you have a zero tolerance policy has but you never say toward what is your zero tolerance policy about. I don't know i just feel it. I just feel like. I've.

"So most people don't try to talk to her. She does have a pension for stalking. Aoc quite czar. And as all of you know that happened before she was a member of congress as well. I do think margin tila. Green doesn't have over. There is something fundamentally wrong with how she thinks and how she acts as specially they're grossly antisemitic statements. She's made recently are really quite horrifying so You have other people as well. Right like matt gaetz. Not only is he under investigation for sex crimes with a minor but just the other day to his supporters. he basically told them to shoot slow combat. He was mad about his view that there was a ledge censorship by the social media platforms and he literally stated that they have an obligation to use a second amendment So this is pretty frightening stuff coming from members of republican party. So what can we do. I want to get to the solutions here. Because we have. Our listeners are a bunch of volunteers and activists who want to do something and be part of the solution. So how can we help. Combat what you recently called the radicalization of the gop abraham lincoln had right when you said that public sentiment is everything with it. Nothing can fail without it. Nothing can succeed. President biden is getting astronomical ratings even from the conservative pauling from rasmussen where biden has a double digit net approval rating on other pose. He's getting you know sixty percent or sometimes even higher. So what you're seeing is that public sentiment is with president biden and that is a very good indicator because even though historically the party controlling the white house loses house seats in the midterms the times when that was not true was when the president had net positive approval ratings. It happened under george. Bush should happen under bill clinton so there is every reason to believe that if democrats continue to deliver such as on laws like american rescue plan and we continue to suppress his viruses economy. Going i believe that we can hold onto the house next year. And i want everyone who is listening to understand their power to shape public sentiment. Social media is free so if you write an interesting post you could affect the voter in florida or north carolina or in ohio. If you write letters to the editor you get published. It is true that many people do write letters editor. It's also true that come from the same people so when they start hearing new voices you can start shipping hearts and minds and then think about attending rallies marches or working on campaigns. Whether it's for an issue or a candidate understand your power to shape public center. Let me just add to that. Also that the american rescue act which is wildly popular and has been giving a lot of people relief. There's a lot of gop members who did not vote for and who are taking credit for it and just believe it was yesterday. Biden came out with the names of the people and and quotes where they've been taking credit for this but it's because it's so popular and as you said..

"And so we're in a difficult place right now in terms of democracy and my hope. Is that the rational logical wing republican party guests more powerful and eventually overcomes folks like marge retailer. Green matt gaetz but right now There clearly Losing to the radicals and crazies in the gop. And we're really watching the radicalization of ogm party in real time Yeah that's what i was gonna say. Look it really looks like it's going the other way. The as you said the crazies are taking over. And i. I grew up in dc. I grew up in a political family in. Dc and there was a lot. This is a while ago this before. A lot of the representatives families started staying in their districts and we all went to school together and stuff. So how much cross pollinating like. What's what's your day. Look like in in dc. When you're on the hill do you. Everyone just in their isolated bubbles right now. How do you communicate what what's your day-to-day look like so. It is true that the senators and members of congress. Now don't stay in dc over the weekends or for long periods of time like they used to decades ago at the same time would really matter. If i was at social events where marjorie taylor green. She was crazy right. So i think at the margins it does affect relationships within congress but the core problem now is not because we don't see each other at a baseball game it's a really because you've got radical crazy people like matt gaetz and larger truly green and and other folks and that is in part due to the republican base If you look at recent polls they're not only disbelieving the evidence of their eyes and ears for example about the insurrection. They're holding literally two conflicting ideas in their own head so one poll shows at when a fifty percent. Republicans believe that insurrection was caused by violent left-wing protesters known as antifa who were trying to make trump look bad and on another poll shows when the half republicans believe that it was a peaceful demonstration. So you can't be both but yet they're able to hold his ideas and it really is going to level of crazy that i haven't seen before in politics in my lifetime so so when you when you see marjorie taylor green in the hallway. D do you talk to her do you. How does how does that. How does that even work..

Basically you're one of the few have been able to best donald trump on his favourite platform. So i actually started twitter when i was in a california state. Legislature budget pose rash about food And those are interesting platform. It really didn't take off until a few years ago. And i was of surprised because i remember talking to my staff one day saying you know it's not like i'm doing magic just telling the truth but i guess there was a hunger for the truth because of our falsehoods coming from the trump administration. And that's really what started. Just the view that i had that if donald trump going to make twenty seven allies in a week amir cout try to call out our twenty. Seven is very very effectively. And you continue to do that with your air quotes for listeners. Colleagues in the house right now.

"So my reason for hope is the vaccine rate in our country right now and And certainly i'm grateful for it. Seventy percent co vaccination rate in may may be in reach which is incredible by all measures are vaccination rate has far surpassed. What myself and many many other people thought it would be at this point. Probably including the biden administration themselves They have certainly surpassed their initial goals and keep raising that benchmark. But like i said at the beginning of the show being fully vaccinated. I was able to fly out and visit my parents and dc who i hadn't seen for a year and a half and They're older my dad's gonna be ninety in august and To be able to give them hugs actual hugs and and spend some time with them So meaningful my daughter is having a real graduation outside at the rose bowl Wow yeah yeah and You know my heart breaks for the kids last year. That didn't get to have that full graduation. But i'm grateful that we're able to cautiously return back to some of the things that we were doing before. I hope everyone if you haven't been vaccinated yet get your vaccines please If we can hit seventy by the summer incredible and then we can really be together and do some of the stuff that we missed doing last year. Really get back to normal. Yeah so that's my reason for hope. Now it's time for this week's to do list first thing tomorrow. June third tomorrow a swing left and the national democratic training committee is hosting a training on talking to voters. Remember that mariah remember when we talked to voters. I talked to voters every day. Everyone you meet his attention voter. That is so on message and also true. So thank you for that. Yeah so it's going to be a really great training.

It's been a long time since. I've tried to do a persuasive conversation with a voter around a specific topic so i imagine i'm a little rusty. I feel i socially overall.

"Mariah. Let's talk about our reasons for hope. What's your reason for hope this week mariah. So this week i wanna shout out amber goodwin. Who is the founder of the community justice action fund which is a anti gun. Violence group led by the people most impacted by gun violence people of color and she is going to be very soon a graduate of mitchell. Hamline school of law She had a tweet go viral a couple of weeks ago that i i want to read to you. All it says sorry. Not sorry in advance for all the law graduation pictures. Y'all are about to get. She's a texan. By the way. I'm forty one. Never been married have no kids and most days society refuses to celebrate people like me. It's been a very rough year but this is a bright spot for many of us it was all worth it and this tweet blew up. Three hundred and six thousand lakes and counting. It's something that people really relate to and gives me hope that here's somebody who is pursuing her dreams and forty one is still very young. It's it's a guess on the older side for an advanced degrees so She really stuck with it. And that's exciting but also what an important reminder to celebrate everything that people do like all of the hard work it should be celebrated whether it's the traditional milestones that our society recognizes or not like. This is such a great time of year so many people are graduating and thinking about the future. And it's just to me very hopeful time of year and this was a very hopeful message and an important reminder to to celebrate people as often as we can. And that's my reason for hope. This week i love that sounds like amber could also be one of our heroes of the week too but She is and i want her on this show and because i want everyone to hear what an incredible story and that's another thing is she so impressive to me. She's done so much with her life and never occurred to me that somebody who was so successful would feel unrecognized but again that's you never know what people are receiving so all the more reason to tell them when you can what you think about them. Just like billy joel. Once said tell her about it. Taylor how you feel. I hope we get a the coal rack brands during every show. Now you're in the studio i can. I can see the drums and guitars.

"I it's a serious problem in the middle east into. Let's hope that our country does the right thing by israel because it is know they both stood by us and i'm also concerned turkey. I understand is turning on israel to but have you heard anything about that. Well that's been going on for a while now. I mean it's getting worse you know for years. Israel was i'm mean Turkey was a close ally that they straddle the christian and muslim world they partner in nato They were strongly Anti islamist terrorism. They were very very strong. Allies of ours. They work closely with israel but earn on. He is making himself into a virtual dictator in turkey allying himself with extreme islamist elements and I am very concerned about turkey. They were in the last twenty years. They went from being close allies To being shown neutral and now being. I've actually hostile so i know we have to be very very careful. The monitor very carefully and their physicians become increasingly anti israel. And which is really unfortunate. Because turkey as i said. It was a staunch ally. We can count on. They were secular the secular nation and They resisted islamic terrorism. But now they definitely gone in that direction and become a virtual dictator as a former member of homeland security A congress We also you concerned about right now. When china we saw this week and you the one i want aware of it is the colonial pipeline. How they could hack into that. I would never this. Group is in russia. We have to fortify our infrastructure. Much much stronger way. against attacks. I mean you've come out in favour. Which i think is a excellent idea that you really follow up on it. Having side before us This is gonna be the next enemy the next real enemy. Maybe the covered real enemy. I was gonna be Either nations or private or separate a renegade organizations that can use cyber a cyber attacks as a weapon. I mean just think of all damage that was done by going. After this one pipeline. This week i mean. North east was basically writing off the high price of gasoline. Go sky have you pointed out many in the price of gasoline goes everything gets i it is. It's an active for who knows Who controls those terrorists. It's an act of terrorism. And i've said publicly that bitcoins. I don't know what the hell the used for other than by criminals or people want to hide it from basically i arrest or by terrorists. Last year was seven billion dollars. Congressman of of bribes paid in bitcoin. No again i think that whole thing because that's more regulation of it. Whatever action as we taking. This is something that you want to along. That has to be carefully. Scrutinized carefully watch and action taken if we have to also. I don't think we're gonna rush off the hook here whether or not russia was behind it. This operation apparently works out of russia. And to me you the country responsible if there's a criminal element in your country which is attacking our country. I hold russia responsible for that.

Their black bar and you can say a lot of things. I can't say i might get a shrew. Yeah but we have to be honest with ourselves. The vast majority of police engage people mock community. The interactions are fine. The interactions actually done a lot of times people in my community. We want the police there. We want the police because let's be very clear. The vast majority of crime that happens against black people is committed by black people That's tough to say but that's truth. Yeah don't believe me. Go ask people in dunbar right now. Who's going who's end dunbar committing farm against black people. Ask them seriously. Well how do we how does that. How does that change. I think that's a culture change of of the black community. I think you're gonna see a shift in a as we talk right now. The one key stat. I feel for you know as a black man in america for the black community which is incredibly important is the formation of black families are on the rise again. You gotta have father figures in these homes I think black. Attainment in education is on horizon in the united states. That's a quality thing into family homes in the black communities arise. That's a wonderful thing and we're starting to see for the first time in sixty years sixty seventy years as the rise in a black middle class again. It's happening right in front of our eyes. I went to college with a lot of them a lot of people. You know my my colleagues where they went and got a college degree it may work out may have not they figure out a way to be successful in our lives are black. Their black middle class families raising their kids. The right way. And i think that is all that stuff is helpful with respect to how the black community deals law enforcement as four. But i think it's important as we talk about this we've got understand the vast majority of occurrences whip police in a black community are actually positive. the sad part is when we see these flashpoints and he's points are just magnified in front of our eyes so let's talk a little bit abou- talking about college you're going to college and recently. They're talking about forgiving student loan funds. And you have said that that is not something you think is going to be in the best interest is that is that your feeling on it that that would be a good thing to do. The student. Loan forgiveness It's it's bad it's bad policy. I was actually in the senate testifying in front of a live. Elizabeth warrants committee on us Tuesday tuesday or wednesday. My statements were very clear that there's a couple of things number one who's gonna pay it or college is going to pay the money back..

"I spend my time on is is highly modernize the military In order to face some of the threats that we've been talking about john whether it is a a china chinese communist party that said on displacing the united states is the dominant power in the world. Whether it's an iranian regime that works through terrorist proxies to attack israel and our other allies in the region or whether it's a rogue state like north korea desperately seeking access to nuclear technology This is where congress and the executive branch has to take these threats seriously or they have to work together. And i really hope. The biden administration doesn't do something foolish in fact tension. I see right now in the administration it is you know there. There are a lot of people led by. John kerry who believe that climate change is our most threat and everything else should be de prioritized And climate change should overrule the problem with that approach as much as i support. Technological investments to improve our environment health and climate change. Is that that leads you to a more naive view of china if you go down that road In a more cooperative view of china. And so i really worry about that tension in the administration and i hope that we can start them in the right direction understood. We have about a minute left congressman. What else would you like chelsea. Burqa people well. I just would say right now. You know the status getting ready to pass this two trillion dollar bill. You know i. I know there's a lot of people in new york who maybe hurting. And certainly my home state of wisconsin. There's some targeted support for two trillion trillion dollars right now In a bill that you know let's face it members of congress aren't even reading only nine percent of which is related to corona virus strikes. Me as you're responsible. We need to have a form of targeted bipartisan approach. And ultimately we need to fix the way congress operates. We're not passing these massive spending bills filled with pork and ridiculous project that nobody reads so another reason why we need to drain the swamp and sixty institution congressman Gallagher so much for coming on sunday morning.

"Let's jump straight in. Because i want to bring our guest in on the conversation immediately. He's a former congressman from virginia's fifth district he's now nc are is chief strategist and author of bigfoot. It's complicated which. I really hope we have time to get into and i really hope. He's still a republican. Let's find out join me in welcoming denver riggleman to the show. Thanks for joining me today. Sir thanks for having me sir. Oh well you heard that with us for the first time it just came out moments ago. What are your thoughts. So i'd like to state as we start here. The president trump reid tweeted a few months ago that the joe biden. Kill seal team six. I think god you're right. No you know. That's and that's what i was when i was listening to that speech after what i heard <hes>. Down near the white house right before the siege on the capital. In fact that i've been in. Congress have been in the house. And i knew some of those people that spoke like madison call or mo brooks of talked to many times <hes>. Don jr. meant obviously rudy giuliani <hes>. I've met obviously and and what i really saw. Their david was absolute <hes>. Language to incite really. It happened over the months and months and to hear that right now. My my first reaction is not really a politician but as an intelligence officer and something counter-terrorism like somebody's very afraid of the senate trial for impeachment. I thought the same thing <hes>. Michael came in a few seconds in michael goes. Looks like a hostage video like he looks like he like. It's not really his words. He just feels the need to say these things he had to. I mean you know. The thing is is that his his term does end. I know that there are some people that are still listening to pastures and trucks talking about biblical prophecy that president trump is right now hidden a bunker and mike. Flynn is going to be the next vice president but by the way that's true. I just saw this video two days ago. One hundred eighty five thousand likes david on a facebook video from some dude in a truck saying that you know he's a pastor and had biblical prophecy and he just went through the whole cunanan thing and i just shaking my head about the ridiculousness out there. But he still wants to keep his brand to. He's got to make money. And how's he going to do that. And i think there's a lot of things you need to worry about. And that speech was the copa. That was so too late and show not anything that he said before that very hard to believe men. You're spot on. I mean. I i you know about damn time is the first reaction and then does he even believe the stuff he's saying is the second reaction <hes>. So late you know so late to the party <hes>. So that so that my listeners have a little bit background as to why this conversation between the two of us is so important <hes>. You know you're you're only a former congressman because apparently you weren't conservative enough for your district right you. You lost to someone who was far more conservative and on top of that. I've seen you. I've seen pictures. Anyway of you officiating. Same sex wedding so you don't sound very republican the to us sir. What's going what's going on over there. Why are you so open minded and logical. You know when iran. You know. i've only been. I don't know people know this about me. I was i was a ceo. <hes> sell my company in two thousand twelve doing counterterrorism and counterintelligence work. Could you know not. Only that i can. I can go back in time. If i told you the crazy stuff. I've done like we mission plan. The first bombing runs death in afghanistan for nine eleven. that was our squadron. It was me <hes>. Oman training omanis on. F16 sixteen operations in two thousand and ninety nine. I was on. The romanian serbian border for operation. Allied for trying to stop ethnic cleansing. I've had a hell of a life and that's just the beginning counter idea. Actually our team that was tracking sulejmani and two thousand six two thousand seven so when people saw my resume like this son of a gun never been in politics before when i ran as a republican i was asked to because the my predecessor had to resign because of alcoholism. Which is a little ironic. Since i'm going to stiller. I one on accident one by one. Vote against a christian. Dominion est <hes>. They called me a baby killing sodomite <hes>. But i thought if if practicality and i was a good guy team player like in my military days voted independently when i had to <hes>. I thought i would see that. I care about people more than the career. Because i didn't need the paycheck and sadly after the same sex wedding david conspiracy theory started about me that i was working for soros to turn children into alternative lifestyles by funding schools. To teach that doug gay sex was okay. And that i really started saying cunanan was turning and blossom and this was back in twenty nineteen and since my background is in you tracking isis and al qaeda and disinformation and radicals. I said this also looks like that. We have almost the same type of thing here. We have people that are using language of dehumanisation and antisemitic. Tropes to go after people. And you know it's like a lot my book right. It's about bigfoot belief systems and take over people's lives so really been a hell of a time for me. I never thought that <hes>. My family we get death threats <hes>. You know i never you know. I never thought that. I can tell you this. Now that somebody would remove the lug nuts are in them all up on my right front tire at a rally where i came out and felt funny and took it to a shop and look like they tried to hurt me pretty bad so this has been one of my life has been like for the past two years david. And guess what athem you know. This is what they want to bring it. Bring it because i got fifty acres of distillery and i'm a second amendment guy and but i'm also a free thinker and pretty socially libertarian. So i don't know where. I fit bud

We're all a little bit stressed out right now particularly after we had that out of buddy experience yesterday watching all the havoc as they stormed the capital and watching them crawl up the facade outside of the capitol on just breaking windows and the tear gas that was deployed inside of the house. Sadly one woman one protester was shot and later died after her experience in the capital. I mean it's just it's it's heartbreaking and it just it just puts us on a razor's edge doesn't it now. We'll came across this piece of the wall street journal that i thought would be rather timely for right now is we're all more than a little bit of stressed out. With the way things are going but you know once again and you sometimes have to hit rock bottom or pretty darn close to it in order to see the proverbial light and to start working your way out of a hole and i have to wonder yes i do.

I've developed a high degree of skepticism. No not necessarily jaded though. It might appear that way though. I can't be a little snark. Cast dick from time to time. But is this a pivotal moment in history. Is this a turning point for our nation interesting During our conversation. This morning with congressman ken back and pose that question to him he was talking about the fact that yeah all politicians and he included himself in that equation. Saying we can do better. We can be more mindful. We can use our words more effectively perhaps in a more positive way when i asked him well in such a bifurcated as such a raucous political environment. Can we accomplish that goal. Well i think we can do what we put our minds to and we can only hope that perhaps now we're not even going to get into at this point in time. We're not going to talk about the fast track to socialism. Now is not the time to have that conversation but the concern is certainly is there. Will president a president. Joe biden enact that far left political agenda to include everything from The brainchild of aoc co sponsored by the way by vice president elect kamla harris That job killing green new deal and the amount of money that that's going to cost us.
