Today, America's Hey, pawn angry in in racist In last night. In yesterday you mentioned we heard from everyday Americans talking about how President Trump has kept his promise in how much opportunity there is so well.

They had personal stories about how the president ways as a human being. Yeah, And that's I think the national media. Ah, really hates Tio highlight that side of him, But I saw that in tax reform.

A matter of national security and directly addressed house speaker Nancy Pelosi who has called the proposed wall immoral.

I wanna know what's the difference between Saudi Arabia and ISIS if I were to go to Saudi Arabia today. I would be arrested as a terrorist because in Saudi Arabia to be an atheist is to be harassed and to be executed by the state. I wanna know why Democrats and Republicans on both sides into not care about eight years abroad. Whether they are bloggers or just minding their own business. They are being hunted by machete-wielding mobs or being hunted by the government bodies to be put in jail and executed terror. I just want to put that out there. Because no one's talking about that. No one gives a damn about eight years. Do you? Is there a member of congress that you that you've spoken to about this measure that that you've tried to get some attention on? The only person I think is on the side of atheist is healthy Gavin Hawaii, I think that is the only person that is on the side of the issue is the only one talking about issues, the only one advocating for secular rights, and it seems it falls on death years. Whether it's Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump or any other politician, atheist don't matter to them, but one one no, thanks for that Christopher the Pew Research Center, releasing some figures as the one hundred sixteenth congress gets underway, right?

Here's the vote wants down the first one of the one hundred sixteenth congress. She's been radio programming from thirst doubled UCSB Lawrence in the Bronx on our independent. Hello. How're you doing fine? Thanks. I think this whole debate over the border security on national security is kind of irrelevant if I'm correct most terrorist activity in the United States over the last twenty years has been by homegrown tourism crimes reason. A lot of stuff is due to ignorance ignorance mean and not knowing nut ignorance in the negative connotation, and they don't put money into education to stop or to debunk or two railroad those national security threat. So the whole thing about the wall. It sounds irrelevant. Because if I understand the facts correctly, the drugs are coming through ports of entry and and Deasy these violent when you when you do the statistic comparisons just understand the information that's out there that more violence happens to immigrants then. Immigrants without documentation, then immigrants without documentation due to citizens. So the whole argument of the debate that they keep running over and over is relevant. And it's sad to see that a lot of Americans don't feed that they don't understand. They don't see that. They're just getting played over and over the same. Misinformation. Okay.

Michigan. Hello. How are you? Fine. Thank you. Purpose. The purpose for my call is I am a firm believer United States should be watching the borders being safe and doing whatever to keep our Americans safe. However. When you're federal agents working the borders working in the airports are going to work without a paycheck, and then the president and congress wants them to protect our country. These people took it oh said they'll continue to protect our country. But to have to go to work without a paycheck is unacceptable. Whether you're a federal agent or Eddie job in America. And if this continues, the congress shouldn't be get paid so easy to reopen. Our government and start paying everybody that's here to protect our country. It just doesn't seem fair. Thank you. Thanks. Marina boats, winding down here. Thirty more members. Not voting quite. Yeah. We'll continue with a couple of calls. Steve good afternoon in Glebe. Glenn Georgia on our independent line. Go ahead. Steve. Yeah. Hey what I say. A couple of things one thing this the the whole wall thing Trump's thrilled that in the people's heads. So that it's a complete false flag thing to me first off the already gave them a bunch of money for the wall. What she's only us six percent of the money that they've already given him. And now he wants like five billion more, which is insane. If you really cared about the security of this country, then he wouldn't have colluded with the Russians because now it's like we've turned our government. Now, we went from being like strongest in the world to the weakest because basically Russia controls our government because it's law that you don't have to be a g thanks for that. Steve thanks for that. We're going to go next to Bobby Bobby in. Arkansas Fayetteville Arkansas Bobbi last word here on this vote. Go ahead with your thoughts bobby's on our Republican. Yeah. My name's Bobby. What Trump is trying to say about Mexico and for the wall. Okay. It's like a retailer you have to buy the product first. And then he sell it to the consumer. And that's what he's man about Mexico is gonna pay for the wall, and they're gonna pay more than what we pay for it. That money will keep going in to rebuild in that people don't understand that. And I'm a military, man. And if you wanna take a country over used fled that country with a whole bunch of other people, you're the other countries people, and they can take it over without firing a shot. And that's what's happened to our country. Now. Gabri since the eighties. They've been coming in here coming in here and look. You know? I mean, it's horrible. I mean, this should have been stopped way back in the eighties. But. Let's say all right. Bobby democratic majority showing it's likely first victory here in their effort to table a proposed amendment by Kevin Brady of Texas, Republican of Texas, which would have made permanent the child the child tax credit part of the two thousand seventeen law. It would also have doubled the standard deduction and effort that was underway in one hundred and fifteenth congress and obviously congressman Brady aiming to make it part of the rules package for twenty one thousand nine hundred we'll watch the rest of this vote live coverage of the house, you're on C span. And on C span radio joining up, which these banned television to get your phone calls. And when this vote is over they will resume debate on the rules of debate for three different things. Number one is the rules package that is house. Democrats want to make some changes to the house rules dealing with among other things requiring bills have a hearing in a markup before going to the floor, and creating a new select committee on the climate crisis and various ethics rules changes for members and staff also ensuring religious headwear is permitted in the house chamber. The second thing that the rules for debate would allow is one of the funding bills to reopen the government and the third thing is the second funding Bill to reopen. The department of homeland security again, the package of reopening most of the government shutdown his through the full fiscal year. September thirtieth for department of homeland security. It's through February eighth without any border wall funding. So that's all ahead on C span radio is heard also C-SPAN television. This opening day of the one hundred and sixteenth congress.

"Your forecast is coming up at twenty past seven forty KTAR h. Sixteen minutes after seven o'clock we continue now Bob brand sitting in for Jimmy Barrett on Houston's morning news alongside sheriff fire. Joined now as promised by Willens congressman Kevin Brady as the new congress gets set to begin today with the democrat majority, congressman good morning. How are you, sir? Good morning, Bob. How you doing? I am fantastic pleasure to talk to you today. Boil boy, you've got a different look at the world today. Now that it's going to be Nancy Pelosi after she gets her gavel back running the show. How does this impact your work? Congressman given the fact that you are now going to be governing if you will from the minority position. Yes. So a lot of change. And I think for most Americans and certainly the folks driving in Houston. Listen to you and cheer today is that the new rules that the Democrats will have in the house, and so they're going to make it today. Make it easier to raise taxes and without a recorded vote. So you won't know what your how you lawmakers voted. They're going to make secret the vote to raise the. The the national debt and so that to be recorded either. And there's just a lot less accountability. And I think more secrecy needs rules. I think that's never a good thing. I don't care who's running the show. And so we'll kind of get the first taste of the new majority later today when we see who votes for these new rules. So the people who elected these Democrats in congress are not going to know how they vote on anything. Everything's gonna be done. With a voice vote is what's going to happen in house? The they are in taxes in raising the national debt something that concerns. I think every listener to the show those will not be recorded votes under the Republican rules. They of course, were because you ought to be able to hold your lawmaker accountable. Gorgeous happen. I'm stunned by this. I know it's there's I think they're trying to protect the new majority and their new lawmakers from that type of scrutiny. Look, you stand where you stand you should be scrutinized in your constituency should be able to see how you vote and so especially on things like raising taxes on families local businesses in raising the national debt that should be front and center on votes, not not hidden by voice vote or some other gimmick in so today. Really? I summarize a cheer. I read the rules finished them last night. It's more taxes more debt and a lot more secrecy. Well, why can't the Republicans do something about this? And who's gonna be leading that charge? We will be one of those today I'll be offering amendment to strike a number of those secrecy provisions, but we are in the minority in the house. And so these are only house rules and the question, though, share will be there. A number Democrats were concerned about. For the opposite reason, they don't think they make it easy enough to spend more especially on things like Medicare for all and some of their big social programs in. So we'll see we'll see if Nancy Pelosi is able to cobble the votes together for this congresswoman when it comes to the agenda for the Democrats in their majority. A lot of people have wondered is it going to be more legislation or investigation. Do you think that they are going to spend any time actually trying to pass laws to the American people? Or are they going to do everything they can to try to take down Donald Trump? Well, I look I if if they're serious about governing making the country better, we're gonna work with them. There's no question about their lots of things in this country, the needs bipartisan work in my worry is that at the end of the year that killed a number of bipartisan reforms to help people. Save more for tire to reform the IRS to provide disaster relief for states like Texas. Now historic flight. They killed all of that just in a partisan way. I hope that isn't a sign of how they'll govern wants their permit there in the majority for the next two years. I hope they'll work together with us because we're willing to. Congressman you talk about bipartisanship. I almost feel like that's like, you know, unicorns. They're not existent. We hear about all the time. But you can't prove it exists because they're in this day and age it just is what is it is what it is. And as evidence of that. Of course, we look at the shutdown right now and border funding border security funding, the president rightly points out as so have so many of his supporters that Chuck Schumer Nancy Pelosi, and so many of these Democrats who are promising not dollar one for a border wall. They have voted for such things and bragged about it in the past if they refused to budge because it might help the president, politically, how can we ever actually think there will be bipartisan? Yeah. That that is a heat worry because even yesterday in the president invited the congressional leaders to the White House. Democrats refused to hear the briefing from secretary Nelson about what exactly the crisis that's happening on the border right now both medically in from criminal terrorism standpoint. They just be interrupt. Didn't wanna hear what problem problems faces? We're in Houston. So we know we're hotbed for for gang violence for sex trafficking and for drug trafficking because of the principally because of the southern border. And so my worry is that I think they have always voted for more funding for bubble fencing wall security more agents, they just turn that off. And I think it's because Bob Nancy Pelosi really has been told by her most extreme members. If you give Donald Trump a dollar. We're not supporting you for speaker, which is why she's now in a pickle in. Why the president said look Nancy? Why don't we come back Friday after you won your election, and let's try to find some common ground here. And I think that's probably smart move. You think it's doable? Oh, yeah. Oh my gosh. This one's yes. Everyone knows the border is not secure we need more resources there. Look, we we need to be reopening the government. There's some important things that need to be done there as well. So this is sure I think this is one of the most unnecessary shutdowns. I've ever seen. To whom should the blame be? I think he's asking you to whom should they blame go. If you want to cast blame who should get the credit, if if things do work out, look, I think I think both parties have a responsibility to define the funding for needed for security. Do this disaster relief that states are waiting for in reopen? The government's not that hard and look to the president's credit. He's come way off the twenty five billion dollars to do this in his point is look, I have responsibility to keep Americans safe border security is national security since so it's not like I have a choice and he's willing to find a compromise. So I'd say right now, the Democrats hold the cards if they want to just keep the government shutdown just launch all these new investigations or on the campaign trail said they wanted to work together and find a centrist approach. Let's see if they can do it congressman last thing on this and apologies for my my cutting out there before, but do we really? The need to pass any more of funding for a border security wall. I was listening to former president presidential advisor, Dr Gorka yesterday pointing out that we have a Brandon eighty two billion dollar overage in military budget that congress did green light that much more money than even was requested. Why can't we take five billion? In fact, the full twenty five billion a funder border wall because as Dr Gorka points out with them, the amount of criminals, and gangs and drugs and everything else killing American citizens flowing across that border. It is a military priority. It's a national security issue. So I hate to rob Peter to pay Paul here we fight and I fought off be hard for the first we building real rebuilding of America's military in fifteen years. Those dollars are needed to increase our troop strength taxi. Bring on the new technology weaponry ships airplanes that frankly, you know, are are are soldiers, sailors and others have had been cannibalizing to keep operating. So I hope we don't rob defense budget, which is. Critical to be able to do this on board security. I think I think they're all the dollars for both of these priorities. Congressman Kevin Brady, we really appreciate you coming on today. We know you got a lot of work to do. And it's going to be a little different doing it. The new boss is in control. But we certainly wish you the very best in holding the line for the people that depend on you. Thank you. Thank you. Bye. Take care. Thank you, sir. God bless appreciate you. All right.
