"I'm John not sure this is the John that's for sure welcome David Drucker reporter at the Washington examiner looking at the never trump Republicans say it's been a story that fine detail for several years that there are never Trumpers in the land all of them on television however David is reporting that the never trump Republicans have now formed a group called the Republican voters against trump I guess that's the against Trumpers as opposed to the never Trumpers bot the important thing here is that raise money and are connecting in some fashion with Joe Biden's campaign though it's unclear David I remember my early years as a political watcher I came to New York this is about the nineteen sit late thank you sixties early nineteen seventies and I can remember storefront in central Manhattan and there was nothing in the store but there was a great big window sign and it said Democrats for Rockefeller I remember this it was vivid because that was my introduction to how it works I Nelson Rockefeller of course was the governor of New York for many years and went on to be vice president for Gerald Ford after Nixon's resignation however that is an old fashioned way of advertising yourself and saying you attract the ordinary opposition is this never trump story is that what they hope to be Democrats for Rockefeller good evening to you David John and look at you know I I think that it's important to understand the difference here because and especially in past political errors there was always a group of people that were basically one party but in a presidential election like to be bi partisan would would would support members of the opposite party maybe interests align or the country had sort of wholesale rejected the incumbent we saw some of that with George W. bush in two thousand and eight honest way out where I talked to a lot of Republicans who didn't really have particular animus toward bush but they felt like the country needed new leadership and so instead of voting for John McCain never get support of Barack Obama but we obviously with the never trump Republicans which is shorthand for you know a lot of for national Republicans who've been very active in Republican politics devoted to professional lives to electing conservatives advocating for conservatives and Republicans and the ticket where opposition to trump himself in what they are trying to do is capitalize on some of the sports within the Republican coalition some of the disaffected Republicans in the suburbs and saying basically we're just like you we still think there were Republicans we think trump is the problem and we're here to give you permission to vote for Joe by now a few things here there are there's more than one group there is a group called the Lincoln project a group of Republican prominent Republican insiders operating DC and their primary mission sort of all the taking honors trying your cake from in sort of provoke him into some helpful responses responses for them that they think would be unhelpful and hurt him hi there is a group stand up public which is the ultimate mall and then defend group that has operated since trump was inaugurated spoke at a grass roots in sort of a high ground level to try and influence public party and now there is Republican voters against trump in their primary goal and they've been doing this is to talk to Republican voters who supported trump in twenty sixteen but are unhappy with his leadership and how are either interested in voting against him or plan to vote against the twenty one and they've recorded testimonials and record their advertising campaign is going to focus on broadcasting Republicans talking about why they're not gonna vote for trump and they think there's a lot more effective than a bunch of Republican leaders in Washington for Democrats basically trying to guilt shame voters into rejecting trump after supporting him the first time around I I will say it's a pretty good strategy if you're gonna try and do this we'll see if it's effective but you have this amalgamation of groups now and they talked with one another are they even talking to democratic outside groups don't talk with buying campaign but what is unique in a little bit different than just a coalition of one party for the office of party president you know Democrats Rockefeller it wasn't a coordinated most likely group old strategies trying to raise money hello to sort of contribute to the campaign it was more of a you know it was more of a testimonial group we're always Republican but in this case with the Democrats and you know finally what I say John is Joe Biden won the nominee you wouldn't see any animals you wouldn't be able to exist with a Bernie Sanders nomination he would have been too extreme in the ultimate never Republicans even for never trump Republicans at least enough of them to have this sort of concerted effort at least based on my reporting on Joe Biden if somebody that they feel comfortable with he's liberal they don't agree with a lot of what he has to say but they feel that he would be conventional and give the Republican party a chance to reset itself in some fashion you introduced us to the co founder of Republicans voting against trump Tim Miller and you mentioned that he was an adviser to Jeb bush is this pay back for sixteen no no it's not similar than a veteran Republican operative in fact the co founder during his illustrious career and I do mean it it's a pretty illustrious successful career he was one of the co founders of Republican opposition research group you since you know a while back left that group similar it's just a Republican you sincerely did not support trump is not like the way he behaves and comports himself Hanson's key policy differences with trump and you know he worked very openly and earnestly twenty sixteen in a last ditch eleventh hour effort to try and block from from the nomination obviously wasn't successful the killer right regularly at the pole work was very open about his views is not antagonistic toward Republicans who at least of his his writings generally who support do you support the president and deliciously strategist unisex putting his money where his mouth is he's not just complaining he's trying to do something about it I don't think there's anything other than sincere opposition in his view of what's best for the country is motivating Tim Forster a long while who is the other co founder of Republican voters against trump who has spent the last few years running these focus groups specifically with voters who supported trump want to try and understand what motivated them and to get she would like to see him leave the White House after one term to trying to figure out what kind of messages would be effective in capitalizing on you know for a lot of Republicans many disaffected but even some who are not quite as effective in general on comparable feeling they have with the president may be voting for Democrats in the emerging far but there are plenty of Republicans who we just wish trump would do things a little bit differently even if they're gonna vote for him and she's hoping to turn some of the existing reluctantly to an actual change of position David we just have a minute here and I want your voice raised as well about the trouble in Pennsylvania the one point eight million votes that were mailed out by governor wolf's direction and the inability for Pennsylvania to report and Nick a result from many parts of the state from the June second primary I believe this is a warning David do you agree warning warning warning for election I yeah I do I think one change Pennsylvania should make it here's a status never voted absentee in large numbers before that's part of the problem they're gonna need to.

"John John and I welcome my professionals David Drucker of the Washington examiner John founded the National Review online the politics of the moment remind all of us that it is less than six months to own national election were burdened by the virus but there are states opening and experimenting with life with the virus until an F. even new York is now looking to open some doors throughout this vast state New York City where I am will be the last and we understand that we've been hard hit however the politics take it out of the moment of worrying about face masks and washing hands to looking at the possibility that there will be a presidential election that will resolve some of the conflicts around us David I start with you because you have an excellent story in the DC examiner how the trump campaign is rethinking its tactics come the election they are now entertaining China as the villain is China something that can be associated with the Democratic Party or is this a matter of geo politics good evening to you David John and look I think that remains to be seen I mean you know first when I found interesting about this topic is I'm old enough that a lot of what Republicans in particular have been saying about the Chinese government and referring to the Chinese Communist Party reminds me a lot about looking runs you a lot of the Cold War in a lot of the rhetoric we heard surrounding the Soviet Union the least in the heyday of the nineteen eighties as Ronald Reagan and the Republicans really owned the Russia hawk lesion within US politics news enjoy I was asking Republican pollsters how this issue was dealing with Republican voters and they were telling me that this this issue getting tough with China cracking down Beijing has been tested off the charts among Republican primary voters and so you have a very receptive audience among Republicans for this issue of not relying on China treating China like a competitor at the very least and not just presuming that the regime in Beijing is going to and honestly and as an honest broker in world affairs in in in talking to some more pollsters you know what I was able to see whether these numbers hold true they're not quite as overwhelming but still hold the majority of independent voters are also very suspicious of China in support on getting tough with China a little bit more mixed with Democrats on button plugin democratic strategist mate to understand the potency of this issue so I think the question is will the trump campaign to be able to wield this as an issue against Joe Biden where will the president as Democrats believe it's very possible at least that's what they say well the president president attempt to do this be multiplied by voter opinion of his handling of the pandemic meaning they could very well agree that China is to blame the China covered things up but they may also decide that that's fine that's not good but the president still did a bad job didn't do his job and therefore we're going to make a change Mr found a good evening to you the Democrats have a strategy that is quite independent of China as well the strategy is that every vote counts and one way I read in your National Review story one way this is being illustrated is that California is to have an all mail in ballot now this happens in other states already is this revolutionary on Gavin Newsom's part or is just aspirational how do you see a job well first of all let's stipulate that absentee balloting has been around since the civil war it's something that's perfectly acceptable for people who have a legitimate reason and the debate is whether or not it should become the norm you know we have laws in the constitution referred to election day they don't refer to election months which is the period of time that some Democrats we want people to vote all around so what Newsome is done is something that no governors ever done he not only plans to have the election effectively all male abilities for few places you can vote in person but he wants to mail a ballot to every registered voter whether they've asked for not including the fifteen or twenty percent of voters who are in active or and we know this from samples I have moved no longer live in the state are dead eligible maybe don't even exist hi John this idea of mail in ballots I accept the fact that some states do it internally I think it's Washington already does mail in ballots Oregon and Colorado led the way yes how does this connect with the story that we had from California and twenty eighteen of harvesting ballots I believe the way it was done was everybody got a ballot but they didn't necessarily mail it in and then the day after the next day people have called at the front door and asked do you have any votes that you could give us was taken to the to the register was some story like that is that the same as their account templating this time just before the twenty eighteen Alexion governor brown signed into law a change previously ballot harvesting with illegal in California ballot harvesting says you can collect as many ballots as you wanted or have to be from family or even friends they can be from anywhere in the neighborhood you can go door to door you can be stand there while people fill out their ballot and you know they have a ballot because you have a list of people who had a ballot mailed to them absentee and then you can bundle them all up and deliver them to the election authorities and frankly you don't even have to show ID when you drop them off and you can pretend you're somebody else I presume so this creates an engraved invitation to mischief at least confusion and mistakes and we don't know if there were problems in twenty eighteen but we do know the ballot harvesting energy Norma's impact on flipping for Republican congressional seats in Orange County all of those Republican congressional candidates for had election night the ballot harvesting came in and the concern here is and this is why the Los Angeles Times is very opposed to ballot harvesting the complete conclusion can be involved intimidation it's not a secret ballot and there are examples that have been documented of people being badgered on their doorstep but people want to help them fill out the vote provisions and then deliver their ballots for the Californian you have thoughts about this did the valid ballot harvesting distort results or was it just simply thoroughness on the part of one party well I mean I think you could say it's a little of both I mean look there is a clear movements in the congressional district that went toward Democrats where as in years past in decades past no amount of ballot harvesting would've turned up enough votes to support Democrats and you know everybody understood what the rules were Democrats took advantage of them and and I say that you haven't talked to Republicans since who has said we don't agree with this process we don't think it should be legal John Kerry at we discussed a lot of the ethical issues with it but they said this is going to be the way things are done and we're going to get with it we're gonna do we're gonna participate in additional this is in some ways a lot about what we've heard over the years as early voting no excuse absentee voting became the norm in many states are there many states conservative states red states where you have early voting for weeks at a time Republicans they used to think too much of this sort of thing and then they got their clock cleaned and they got their **** in here and now they do it you know as well as anybody else so I you know I think the issue here is that once both sides I understand that rules are rules it tends to equalize itself out John I believe Nancy Pelosi indicated in one of the early negotiations over the aid packages that have been passed that other Democrats are eager to make national ballot at national mail in ballots is that is that a credible ambitions still John did that get put set aside after they made deals over the money it was set aside but it will return any future negotiations over eight packages Congress in this scenario would override the states and require all fifty states to provide a mail in ballot provision with no excuses probably postage paid and and do to eliminate as many as possible of the provisions that limit absentee ballots for reasons of six ballot security I by the way David is very appropriate in saying that both sides are gonna be using this tomorrow gonna test of it there's a congressional election in northern Los Angeles county and evenly divided district were both candidates or ballot harvesting and almost all the votes will be cast by mail and this will be very interesting test not only of president trump but of the democratic surge in the state that has been seen in the recent years I'm speaking with my professionals David Drucker of the Washington examiner and John from the National Review online we're speaking of the presidential contest that is in six months and when we come back will there be presidential contest conventions this summer given the concerns the on right now unclear.
Iowa vote Monday could be a wake-up call
"Is coming you know we've got a little presidential election going on here Democrats are choosing their candidates David can you believe or not less than a week away from the Iowa caucus no I cannot but sure we do can be used the mind is fully shortly and we'll have a winner well as as many politicians including the former president George Herbert Walker bush said you know momentum is everything big mo we used to call it and if you're looking at the polls right now big mo seems to be with Bernie Sanders in Iowa doesn't yeah well what were you needing a lot of polls he's gaining in polls where he's not leaving and you know he clearly is in a good position special considering that his backers of some of the most enthusiastic factors of all the democratic primary candidates in terms of you know how loyal his supporters are unwilling they are not show up for him so easily he's in a good place if he's speaking speaking at just the right time obviously with a with a clock is you have to be a little cautious because they can be hard to gauge all yeah even four years ago not withstanding that all of the polling that showed trump ahead in the Republican primary was correct told me we can cruise still managed to win Iowa are good for points and that had to do with you know you can get the right kind of not quite showing up is on the final hole right in in so little bit of caution because offices are weird but I think we have seen enough data to know that this is Bernice race to lose as much as it is anybody funny yeah you know you use a phrase that I've been using a lot it it it certainly seems like Bernie's race to lose it and I've always sort of been seen that way David record considering three years ago he's wrong he ran in his primary caucus situation for the Democrats in all fifty states and came a whisker away from beating Hillary Clinton a formidable candidate I mean he's got the experience he's already got the infrastructure and god knows he's got the fund raising power I it's always been Bernie's to lose well what do argument but there's another way you can look at it which is that four years ago if you want to register a vote against Hillary Clinton you only have one choice okay and when you look at how the Republican primary we shaping up especially in as you got in the spring a lot of Democrats could not imagine Donald Trump feeding Hillary Clinton and so there was all sorts of security and all sorts of reasons for voting for Bernie Sanders and primary that may not have had to do with the fact he was Bernie Sanders out here he does well in Iowa and New Hampshire is the polling day suggestion court and we're going to see is the fact of burning a lot of staying power that he was able to achieve success by not simply being the anti Hillary candidate in the exact primary and you know how far finance regularly sentiment Kerry people so that's not nothing yeah it would mean is just a lot more to Bernie and that he was a lot more established on the left even though they had so many of those services I'm hearing some conventional wisdom David Drucker within the Democrat pundits that yeah okay of Bernie when's the caucuses that's that's kind of a thing at we expected to win New Hampshire even if he wins those two it's not really what those two states are reflective of the Democrat electorate and really things matter once you get down to a larger more African American state like South Carolina is there something to that or I mean I I'm sorry if you win Iowa and New Hampshire good lord you've got momentum there at that point well look in the in the modern nominating air all all since Iowa meeting should be seen as saying that any Democrat who has one island of Hampshire has gone on to win the nomination yeah it's a let's not minimize what that kind of momentum guys in terms of how voters in a primary that haven't voted yet look at candidates when you start to win you look like a winner and that often attracts a lot of support when you start to lose you look like a loser and people are just not as enthusiastic about you and they all of a sudden question whatever electability hat having said that there are different electoral compositions and some of the states and it's possible that the race is still unsettled such that somebody else and rise in you know even in twenty twelve I will saying we saw a Republican primary that was unsettled because nobody ever felt that thrilled with the front runner so even after I met Ronnie finish what appeared to be first even a close you know by a William my whiskers Santorum yeah in one New Hampshire the Los out Caroline any loss of pretty gamble it right when voters there said no forget it and then he was able to recover in Florida because of the way the schedule was that year and and news agency mistakes and in the debate so you never know all right so do not which brings us your latest column which I find to be a fascinating angle on this whole thing let let's stipulate for a moment the Bernie Sanders does do as well as it looks like and he actually is lined up to be the nominee for the Democrats this seems to be a bridge too far for never trump Republicans the I find that fascinating everybody have wanted someone like I wanted to see what they had to say about thirty standard you know I think will focus on a lot of the in a quorum call never troubled public invent that some people think about they see on TV they think you know about they think about people that have become meeting in their eyes rather flexible ideological but I talked to a lot of these people that are not on television and a lot of them you know whatever you think about the position on trial yeah consider themselves very philosophically conservative and they have a lot of issues with trump but they're not really interested in replacing in their eyes one problematic radical for another with a whole host of different problems so they don't really want to turn on one set of problems for another and so yeah there are limits to their never trump ism I think the larger issue that I try to get you in the stories well is that if you even for these this month of people that want trump to use they just don't think on top of it all Bernie Sanders is going to be in which swing voters in the states are going to decide the presidency and therefore they don't see the point anyway if they think it's it presents from a choice of voting for somebody that is equally problematic just differently cell and on top of that won't even wait and that's just for them a double whammy so I I'm curious what the what then do they do did they sit it out completely do they actually vote for Donald Trump rather than go for about socialist or do they try to find a third party candidate well I I think I think Bernie Sanders who the nominee you're not going to see them do much of anything organizational all right because I even to the extent that you know they got some money behind them in a few different groups which they do which you know in a targeted way could be impactful they're not gonna wanna help Bernie Sanders there's not really an Avenue to see trump I I think that they would hold but not necessarily do anything about they would hope that maybe some centrist third party candidate mergers on you know looking at trump and Bernie is both too extreme but I think they're trying to figure out what it is they do they were telling me yesterday at least some of them that we don't really know what we did we would suggest would after Josh but they're not sure what they

"That's huge test one. And I think it's something a lot of voters are going to be looking for this is somebody who has not been disciplined in the past. This is somebody who has a failed to hit the marks somebody who has proved himself at times, to, to say the wrong thing at times, to, to at least for the democratic primary all. Choose the day. And so when he's put the pressure, if he's able to show that you can maintain discipline that won't be something recommends him as a candidate who has evolved in and loan, something of his time in politics. Said, okay. Our friend, David Drucker, has a piece at Vanity Fair, Republican operatives. It begun a vast coordinated Otto effort to rail. Joe Biden, the Democratic Party, Mary, or at least make sure he limps into the general election, quote, there's a lot of material, it's sort of a gold mine of content of that divide into two categories. Jon Allen, the floods the stumbles fumbles and the substantive. Robert Gates, critique being the most damning, which is Joe Biden Inman right about a single foreign policy issue in forty years, which do you think the Republicans will use against by or Democrats against him the floods the gaffes or the substantive? Critique. The substantive critiques Q and, you know, it extends the critique against him from the Democrats will extend beyond the foreign policy and essentially be what rob with did said the question is, whether anybody will make such a sustained or such a such a broad argument against them. You know, you can see the debate kisses yellow brand taking them on the Nida hill. You could see maybe a Cory Booker, even on Harris taking them on, on a school bus, and you could see one of the one of the women Senate candidates, or maybe even a judge taking him on, on his this.

"Twenty the answer here on the north coast David Drucker we weren't able to make that connection last hour good, news I, am told he will be joining us at the last segment of this hour and that'll pre seed Peter Kirsten US civil rights Commissioner and Thomas home and former. Acting director of, ice, I mentioned Twitter before and. I've asked you to follow me and continue. To engage in conversations with me? One of those Twitter users who as a, conservative and just very very outspoken much more so than Hugh I don't hold my tongue in in, in. Many ways or my thumbs if you will when it comes. To you know misinformation propaganda from the left that I wanna fight back against and, and I have had some of the shadow banning experiences that up that other Twitter users have you might think well that's a little bit extreme I don't have hundreds of thousands of followers The red. Hugh Hewitt does others but I have found. Numerous people, telling me they can't access, my tweets because Twitter has, flagged them for being inappropriate. And they're not when. I say I don't hold my tongue, it doesn't, mean I'm profane or graphic just means I'm very. Very direct. And very very strong so I have a big problem with Twitter a major problem. With Twitter and I'm embarrassed sometimes to tell people to follow me on Twitter into use Twitter to reach. Me because I don't, want to give them any more support for their platform but having said all of. That I do stay on it so that I can combat things, like this, and also to point out. Their hypocrisy the likes of which was displayed in this recent episode with Dana bash Dana lashes you know is, a spokeswoman, for the NRA the Jacksonville shooting over the weekend at the Madden video game event has drawn all kinds of attention for obvious reasons horrific two people were killed. I think up, to, ten were wounded and the. Shooter himself a video gamer who was upset Because he lost his, video game competition specifically according, to eyewitnesses walked right by bystanders did not attempt to harm them and only shot other players but at any rate it's a terrible thing he shot himself after it was, done and Dana lash Finley became, the villain why because guns were used to kill people and the NRA supports gun ownership therefore Dana lash is. To blame how bad does it get well this bat one Twitter user took to, the the, medium to to Twitter to proclaim quote the only way these people learn speaking of NRA supporters the only way these people learn is is if it. Affects them directly so Dana. Lash has to have her children murdered before she'll understand I guess that's what needs to happen I'm gonna let that sit there for a second. If Dana lash needs to have her children murdered before she'll understand. I guess that's what needs to happen These people are demented they are they're. Deranged they are very very sick people Dana lash justifiably incorrectly immediately reported this along with the countless other. Death threats that she and her, family get because she is an NRA spokesperson she reported this to Twitter, saying? This should violate your terms of service in, this account should be blocked right. She received a reply from Twitter that said thank you for your recent report we have reviewed your report carefully. And found that there, was no. Violation of. The Twitter rules, against abusive behavior Mind your Twitter is among the. Social media platforms that has banned and blocked and limited Dennis Prager Dennis Prager that hatemonger who has who is Online Prager university videos are watched by. Millions they have? They have censored. And stop Dennis Prager but. We should kill your kids to Dana lash does not violate. Their terms of service are you serious they are serious this is what they do the left, in every attempt in any well in every opportunity I should say they. Take every opportunity, in any. Situation, to try to advance their political agenda including their anti, second amendment agenda are literally threatening people's children with. Death and Twitter says, that's okay now after the exposure of their response by. Twitchy dot com which is a part of our Salem corporate umbrella just, for, fair disclosure full disclosure after twitchy and others, highlighted what, they, said Twitter took the opportunity to have a second look at it and said. Okay upon further examination after viewing the instant replay we've decided okay this does violate our terms, of.

"After trump during trade war hewitt complaining opposition to trump would liberal leaders quick trip to europe might set him right you know come see us it's that classic arrogance to which i responded these measures nato etc outward manifestations of an inward resolved to rejoin the atlantic alliance and frankly i think when boris johnson dot com on tape saying trump could actually negotiate brexit he's speaking for the people of europe not the elites david drucker any tapping into something that's global well no doubt there is a lot of populace angst with big institutions and i think europe is dealing with its own issues because the european union has become basically this this other layer of government that people can't even vote out if they want to me that's that's a big problem that we don't have the united states we have we have federal elections every two years here people can take action and that was part of the brexit problem is the people didn't have any recourse to shape the eu they didn't like what's going on and so that's an issue i think the only thing that too the president i think has would help him to be aware of aware of it is that even though there are populist movements in europe that are similar to the united states with european voters broadly speaking he's not the most popular guy and so when he jawbones canada or job owes you know other countries in europe for not doing their part it's actually i think difficult for those leaders to negotiate with him in a sense that he could come out far on top and he's talks is their own voters are not going to reward them for it and could punish them for it and that's an issue say the boris johnson this is the secret tape that leaked yesterday here's boris johnson talking about donald trump breadth.

"The hour america neil diamond retiring from performing his revolt of parkinson he will be missed but of course admitted extracts were as doug david drucker of the washington examiner cnn has got a great piece out today on the collapse of the democrats truly a route uh david drucker a ship is chuck schumer let him into a box canyon and what happens in box kenyans is never pretty they got slaughtered i mean it it it was predictable maimi republicans have never want to shutdown than in recent memory and i think everybody including republicans that i've been talking over the last we were convinced that they couldn't win a shot down so in some ways i can understand why the democrats uh thought it might have been a viable strategy um especially when you on the president will with low approval ratings who doesn't necessarily stamp method every day but it didn't work out that way and the only thing schumer can do one thing you can do i was available to him is cut his losses before got too bad i do go back and uh and watch my saturday msnbc show this was not a surprise i spent the time of courtney qb and france young men kim from politico it just one is surpri it is a untenable position to shut that to stop paying the military in order to push forward on dreamer relief well you know yes i think it's actually larger than that i think if we look at the 2013 shock out over obamacare and then we look at this i think we have to instances where glovas can be very unhappy with a law or be very supportive of a particular policy getting done but they're there but they're complicated enough and held a look at politics to say that maybe a government shutdown is not a vehicle for bringing things about and i think four years ago when public were surprised that bush could hate obamacare so much but not approve of their tactic for doing something about it manning democratic learn the same lesson here there's a lot of support for helping the dreamers and related immigration issues uh voters one necks when it came to whether or not you should forced a shutdown to leverage the change and you want from the minority when you don't have a power to do with uh regularly with votes let me let me break gan.
