"America again. This is the Buck Sexton show. Former CIA analyst. Remember the Sex? No. Nobody. David Harsanyi from National Review back in the mix. He joins us now to talk about the peace deals and also some deep state action. We got our man David Joyner's David, Thanks so much, always a pleasure. Thanks for having me so I want to start with The Ah the change that people should have now in there thinking about consensus foreign policy and how any time there's an issue of foreign policy were all the smart people are just supposed to think a certain thing. People should have their concerns. Here is John Kerry, Obama's second secretary of state, in the most dripping Lee condescending and arrogant, tone possible, telling everybody I mean, there's no peace deals with Israel in the Middle East that don't go right through the Palestinian Authority play for there will be no separate peace between Israel in the Arab world. I want to make that very clear to all of you. I've heard several prominent politicians in Israel, sometimes saying Well, the our worlds in a different place. Now we just have to reach out to them. And we can work somethings with the Arab world will deal with the Palestinians. No, no, no. And no, I can't tell you that reaffirmed, even in the last week, As I have talked to leaders of the Arab community, there will be no advance and separate peace with the Arab world without Palestinian process and Palestinian peace. Everybody needs to understand that that is a hard reality. There is no way David that John Kerry than the sex you know, the the most recent Democrat secretary of State said. I mean, as everyone's in pointing out this aged about as well as you know, raw hamburger meat left in the trunk of a car in Dallas in July. But what say you? I think you said it very well there, but we have to remember that this is just one of the comments John Kerry has made Dozens of similar you know, in a very confident comments about how the Middle East would never have peace if there wasn't first, a Palestinian state of Israel didn't first capitulate the Hamas and the P L. O that he said that Israel will be isolated economically if they didn't You know, first make a deal with the P L O, meanwhile, course Israel is that is one of the top investment destination There is there are in that region and now they're going up these relationships with very Wealthy Arab nations is completely wrong. And of course, he's just echoing the consensus. I love that in that clip the behind him, it says. Brookings Institute, where you know tons of mines have been wrong for dozens of years, and we keep listening to that. We're expected to listen to them. We have government. We have them on MSNBC and CNN. Confidently explain to us what's going on there. They've been wrong in every way. I noted this in the column this week. But Jared Kushner has been has done more for years for peace that everyone at Brookings has done 100 years for peace, and that's just the fact that there's no way around it anymore. And anyone who argues that That the prism of all foreign policy should be conducted through the Palestinian Authority in the Middle East. Eyes no longer It's just not a credible person anymore. And I think of Thomas Freeman, for example, who For me. It's just always been a creation of the liberal media mean here's a guy who was such a huge proponent of how Palace Palestinians. It became trendy when I was, you know, in college in high school. To think of the most important challenge in the world was finding a way to make the Palestinians happy enough that they would stop threatening to destroy Israel that that was it right. There was no other policy challenge as important as getting the Palestinians and Hamas and the pillows. You point out the passing authority P a. To find their finally say we're going to stop destroying Israel, and nothing else was worth even discussing in the region. This. This was a an ossified concensus for years and years, And it's just such a reminder. The people that say this stuff and write these are they don't know what the hell they're talking about. No, I don't. Listen, I I'm not some big brain or anything like that. But I mean, it was clear from the early nineties on that this was not going to work. It never works. The Palestinian Authority is just incapable of Making a deal with Israel. That is that is something that's acceptable to both sides. They want a right of return, which is suicidal for Israel. They want to go back to the 67 lines, which is not suicidal for Israel. They want to create a little mini terrorist state next door, which is not going to happen. So what? Why this is a historic, I think, is that they circumvented that home of discussion within the Within the agreement that these nations made the other day. It mentions nothing about a Palestinian state and mentions nothing about right of return in the usual things that are always part of these agreements, and more than that the Arab League itself would not even condemned the deal in any way, so the Palestinians who basically have veto power over the foreign policy in the region. No longer have that and that That is what super important you know for for Obama for the carry types. Everything's about Iran. Everything's about making a deal with Iran. You know, I saw Jeffrey Goldberg, who's been as wrong as anyone on the Middle East, say. Look at this. Israel's just making deals for afoot with authoritarians, and this is just about all about that. As if Palestinians Iranians aren't authoritarians has been, you know, pining for a deal with that, if the deal's people and they're not the best people rather have bad people are on my side and bad people who are And you know, dealing with that. So I think I think it's a really historically on natural people fully fully comprehend that you haven't been around a long time. Unfortunate and the other the other talking plumage. That was pretty amazing. Is well. Israel's gotten a deal now with two countries. It's never been at war with. The's are countries that pretend that Israel doesn't exist. That won't allow an Israeli passport to fly through. I mean, like there's enormous animosity and restrictions that had existed between these countries previously, but you know, whatever works for the news. I was whatever Getsem clicks that is the most insane, stupid thing to say. Of all the talking points I've seen. I mean, we've never been at war with Russia, either, right? It's you know, it's the gulf nations they create. They helped create the Palestinian the P L O and they helped create Hamas and they've been fucking with. They were funding from 19. Even before 1967. There were funding terrorism against Jewish civilians around the world. To me. That sounds like like a war of some sort. You call whatever you know, Whatever used whatever you weren't like that, more than that. Is a sea change and how people are going to deal with each other. If some countries in the Arab world had friendly relationships with Israel and Jewish people that is going to that is going to probably spread. When people do business together, they formulations to ships together. They form cultural ultra bonds together and this is this is really important in that aspect. That's not obviously just written out in agreement. It's just more about this spirit of where the world is headed, rather than this ridiculous idea that they weren't going to launch weapons at each other. No, they weren't because no one launches weapons that Israel nearby anymore because it doesn't end well. David, I also want to talk to you about. I know you wrote a column about this recently. This should have gotten a lot more attention. In my view. First of all, you know, I'm a little note to myself, because, well, Matty's kind of predated my institution of this rule. But now I know that anyone that the media elevates from within the like non partisan ranks of government service anyone the media tells you is amazing. Is almost always an egomaniac, and at some level there's there's a real problem, right? I mean, at some level, this is sort of a fraudulent narrative that we've been handed it, so I'm not saying entirely, but there's something off about something. You know, we were told that James Comey was like the greatest law man in the history of the world. We're told that Robert Mueller was the ultimate FBI guy we were told, but I remember this and so it's not even always a strictly partisan thing. Petraeus was the most brilliant in, you know, Fantastic strategic mind ever. Yeah, when he wasn't you know, you know what Ng with his biographer under the desk in Afghanistan while people are fighting and dying for? I mean, there's a lot of stuff going on here. And never mind also the classified information leak that he engaged in but Mattis was always treated like this warrior Monk almost like a saint of the Marine Corps and I do hear from him on the military said they really liked him. But there were some warning signs about him..

"How do you know he didn't care about the law because he did it anyway. He tried to buy a firearm was told no so we went around engaged in an illegal sale. The fact that it was private is relevant. If i can hat tip david harsanyi on twitter harsanyi made a great point on twitter notice how with the liberal this is excellent. Excellent verdict is in excellent point david harsanyi joe when someone buys crack in the street and a private sale yeah. Do you refer to that as a private crack sale. I was in a legal sense. You know what goes it was a private sale crack. It was an illegal drug by yeah. Yeah we need the street. You saw them crack without a better chance legal against the law. The criminals don't care at the guy who sold the drugs doesn't care the guy bought the drug. They don't care okay nor did this. Guy i did not engage in a private gun sale. It was an illegal gun sale. They're only using the term private sale because they want to reinforce this image edge that there's this major loophole yet these people and if we just fixed it by another law it would stop people there. Already is a law. If you're a prohibited possessor you cannot buy and you cannot loan prohibited possessory firearm. She just don't care reinforcing my point from the beginning that gun laws. I don't work probably just as poorly as drug laws. Don't work the differences. There is zeh public good to owning a firearm to protect yourself. There is no public good from smoking crack none. No i don't make a strong case drug ugh laws. Do i mean that's a whole other. Show up feedback on it but but that's a we don't have the time for this here but at least with crack. It's a very difficult for coach documents to make like you know what it's good for way loss. Not you know it's a really awful thing and in a plague on our society -iety owning a firearm is not right people protect themselves their property areas that have a second amendment edmund based laws and regulations. You see lower property crime rates. 'cause people don't want to break into a house where the owner could defend themselves. Oh my gosh if you just would awaited but they can't reporting. It was a private sale. The private crack sale asst. I know you understand the others. Are we do the show like a common evergreen. Themes has always been to point out to you the narrative you've so you see it now whenever you see on twitter on facebook. It was a private sale your first question should we was illegal. Yes it was so why is it. Why does it private matter. What's the it doesn't matter. What does that add to the story. It was an illegal gun sale. It'd be no different than if a gun owner in a gun stores n._f._l. Sells a gun to a guy who's a prohibited possessor. It was a gun store sales. It wasn't illegal sale. Go down didn't matter. It doesn't doesn't matter criminals don't care framing..

"Of the way, let's work together. Let solve the crisis at the border. Let's figure out how it doesn't make a massive impact on any one particular community. Like, we're seeing a lot of the border towns along or southern we're one of the. All right. So we wanted to make that clip longer to give it as much time as possible because the description associated with this clip, and I'm quoting here. Chris wallace. Methodically destroys Trump's plan to ship migrants to sanctuary cities right to Sarah, Huckabee Sanders face. That's verbatim. The description of that clip. Okay. So given the description of that clip, and what you just saw title start with you this time is that fake news or not. Chris Wallace just showed you the poster child for fake news. That is the fakest of fake news. He what he should be asking is if a border, which is. One of the most basic concepts of sovereignty a well. Regulated in defended border. For it to have come to where we are. Now where a solution like this can be put on the table. That's what he should be. Wondering isn't that? The fact that we are even discussing this as a concept at all a sign of how broken things have gotten. But no, he's acting as if everything is reasonable and gray area nuance up until this point. But now all of a sudden were dealing in crazy line. We try to do something. The Trump is actually saying, hey progressives. You've got an idea over there, you keeping knowing the lawn creating this place where you want them. So we're going to give you even more every premise about this that Chris Wallace takes up is just backwards and. He is better. He's got to be better than this. Go away. He he's not Eric. Yeah. No. This is just one quick comment about this. This is a typical tactic of a left wing media, which is basically all of mainstream media, you notice how he goes to one particular person who says a specific set of facts. Yeah. See we have this expert over here who says this this this, and this why how how did air you? How dare you be contrarian to the expert? Explain yourself. Yep. One final clip here. This. Well, he argues that you're quarrel is with him as a gay, man. And that he says I was born this way. And this is the way God made me, that's your belief. I think I think Pete squirrels with first amendment. Feud is what the that's that. He so you here. Mike Pence comes back. But I think it's quarrels what the first amendment talking about P, but 'age who's having his moment in the sun right now. But this is a feud between but 'age and pets Aaron I'm going to start with you fake news or not. Well, that is that's fake news. Here's what I what I'm focusing on is is his comment. His feud is what the first amendment when I heard him say that the Mike Pence whose knees buckled on Riffa all of those memories came flooding into my brand my sperm count dropped your sperm count dropped.

"Human beings are fallible. That is me. They're never wrong that doesn't mean they don't have things to apologize for your legitimately angry. But when you get to the point that the resentment is so grounded that you see giving them the benefit out. You can't bring yourself to find out empathetic -ly, why they might see a situation differently than you didn't fulfill the need that you had that you expected from them when the resentment is so set in that the benefit out ceases, and you, and you just want that narrative to be reinforced, you're describing this on a cultural level and this happens when one or both parties either are not interested in coexisting anymore or just don't think that it's possible. Right. I think you hit on something it used to be that we or at least maybe I'm romanticizing the past. But it seems to me that we used to at least have the same goals in mind. We thought we have you know, we saw problem with different ways of trying to fix that. Problem poverty. Whatever it was an we we went about it in a different way someone in more government someone at lesson. So on I think today, we don't even view the same things as problems where the right might say, we have a illegally coming over the border is, you know, that's a problem we need to fix in some way in the left says, let's break down those walls and let anyone who wants to come over. And I'm sure that they see things, you know, other topics in the issues in the reverse. So that's a big problem. Because now you have to separate narratives two separate ideas about what America should be about two separate ideas about what we should be dealing with. So when you see gridlock in congress. It's not something that's contrived. You have gridlock in congress because you have to separate sides. Just simply can't come together on anything. Congress supposed to be that. When you can't come together on anything. I don't know where that leads..

"And I honestly I got bored of doing there were so many predictions that didn't come true about how the economy was going to just fall apart. How people going to die like you say Larry Summers. How how you know, the the only the rich we're gonna get a tax cut people in big states can get tax cuts not true either. So it's just it was completely wrong. But let's be honest. This is just sort of the default position out. No matter what happens. It's always the end of the world when whether comes to leaving the Paris accord, leaving you know, Iran deal of you know, the tax cuts healthcare policy. It doesn't matter. It's always people going to die because Republicans want to kill them for some reason. And it never comes true. And then they just repeat the cycle over and over. Over again, David Harsanyi is our guest here on the blaze. He's with the federalist. So let's look at this from the other side, you know, and one of the things I try to encourage our audience to do is sometimes a straw man is drama. If it looks like a duck quacks like right sometimes a construct is a construct. But a lot of times the things that we we turn into Stroman and construct s-, aren't they may be affectively or factually that, but they're not intentionally or purposely that mean, they set out to be those things that they may they may self parody themselves into that corner as you, and I've just been itemizing, but from their perspective, they think they're putting forth legitimate discourse here, sometimes so what would be let's look at it from their point of view. Why do they believe these things? I mean, why in fact, let me put a finer point on David. Why do you think they would say they believe things like this? First of all, I don't think everyone believes I think they're cynical politicians cynical columnist who sort of throw this out there because some people do believe it. Why do they believe is because they wanna believe it? It's a matter of blind faith in. I don't think it's a specific policy either. Meaning I think that generally they try to create a perception overall that all these things together, our, you know, our nihilistic that Republicans the poor, and it's not just about one specific policies. Some it's sort of a mantra that they need to repeat no matter what's going on. And our politics have done a lot more emotional. Meaning when I was young you could see someone like Ronald Reagan come around in convince a lot of people that his policies were better than you can win forty something states. And so on today. I don't think that's possible. I think partisanship has become much more ingrained in people and people have much more rigid. So even when they see evidence undermining their claims, they don't believe it. I mean, you know, Muller considers. Collusion you could quote him. But that won't stop people from saying that, you know, Donald Trump colluded with Russia doesn't matter what people say to just continue to believe the things they want to believe in. It's like it is like blind faith, people have in in in religion or G. And it's you know, it's something that's a little different. I think than we've been seeing in America for the last year or we've been seeing something different for the last decade than we did maybe for hundred years before that historically when this occurs. This dynamic that you just described historically when this occurs in a culture, it is similar to a divorce in a marriage. It's a win win. You cease looking. That doesn't mean you're never frustrated by your partner..

"Are let's get to pop culture, Tuesday and quick little audible is I got a note from an old high school buddy of mine, by the way. So Ross black port if you're listening you prompted this in old high school buddy of mine sent me a note last night. And this is pop culture Tuesday. We look at the intersection between pop culture and conservatism each Tuesday here on the show for a segment, and he wanted to know what were the top three resurrection movies for family viewing. He says that I haven't seen the passionate and it sound. But I'm wondering if it might be a little too much for my ten year old. All right. So I gave him three just off the top my head. And I didn't have a lot of time to research this. The the passion would be number one. I think we've probably all would agree. It's too intense for a ten year old. Thank my two oldest daughters. Saw it when they were around twelve ready for it. I one right now who's eleven and just her. She's not ready for it. Yeah. Noah saw for the first time in eleven last year. The other the girls didn't see it until they were twelve so, but in I there's certain things we just know kids shouldn't see. And then there's a lot of things when you ask me. Well, my twelve year olds I don't know your twelve you know, this one I'm pretty good pretty cool with saying at the very least ten is too young to see this movie. Yeah. I think that's okay. But but it would be number one on the list number two just off top my head. That's a recent movie. If you've not seen the movie risen with Joseph fines risen is great. I mean, it is a it's a remarkable film. And it tells the story of the resurrection through the eyes of a a Roman investigator who is set to investigate the soldiers that allowed the the the body of this. You know, troublesome carpenter from Nazereth to be taken. So that his followers could claim was reser. Erected. And so it follows the resurrection. But from the other side of the of the looking glass, and you know, I've I've kind of. Shown a penalty to like stories the do things like that. Okay. So arisen is exceedingly well written Josephine's as is it's exceedingly well acted. So I would highly recommend that. And that's that would absolutely be fine for a ten year old. Yes. Okay. And then I threw one in just specifically that's kid oriented, this one's about twenty years old. And I forgot that Raytheon's was actually in this one. Okay. So if you're looking for something that is directly for kids. And of course, you have all the classic veggietales stuff as well. But the miracle maker was was something that came out nineteen ninety nine two thousand and Ray fines place Christ in this. And it's fairly it. I haven't seen. It instance, our kids were little, but from what I can remember the orthodoxy. And this is pretty good. I haven't seen it. Yeah. And and it uses a lot of. Modern animation slash kind of what you see with the LEGO movies kind of things at the same time from what I remember. So since I got this last night. I just thought I and I responded to it old high school buddy of mine. I thought I'd share it with the rest of the audience. If you're looking for things or tips that stuff to watch I've got on my DVR at home. I'm gonna try to watch them this weekend. But there's a series on Jesus his life that was recommended by several people whose opinions I respect, and I think it was done by history or the Discovery Channel.

"I was thinking about this a lot yesterday. And I. On purpose did not go on to whether or try to get my hot take. There is enough of that there were people making jokes about it too. Which is just dumb. But I I I have several I have several thoughts. Of course, the first thing was what is responsible for this in the first thought, of course is as well. How come the other three hundred thousand days that were not holy week since this thing things construction, I can't over three hundred thousand days that were not during holy week that this structure has been standing how come it never caught on fire during I mean, there's been restaurant. How come it never just caught on fire like that three hundred thousand days not holy week since its construction began. That's the first thing. I don't think it's a coincidence. I don't think it's a coincidence at all for one reason or another you can determine what that is. The second thing is I expressed on numerous occasions, my respect and affinity for classical. And classical meaning old style Catholic architecture because there is nothing you walk into a classic basilica or or cathedral. There is nothing that is merely functional. There is nothing just we have these polls just to hold up that there's there's symbolism rooted in God's were behind rooted in in the bible behind almost everything in every cathedral that I've been in. I took bright interest in this in college. Because where I went to college one of the biggest buildings on campus was a former convents, and so the, of course, the that it's Anjelica all of the icons have been removed. But one of the greatest things as walking around campus in my historical theology class one day and looking at all of the meaning behind the architecture and some of these buildings and the the. The inspiration to and wonder at the majesty of the almighty, even if you're not a Catholic seeing the seeing seeing the imagery behind all of the architecture. There is really a sight to behold, and that's why I have such a great affinity for that. And I I remember eight years ago in two weeks, I visited France with with an orchestra, and I got to go inside the Notre Dame cathedral. And it's stunning. But one of my favorite memories of that trip was in Geneva, actually, and you go into the cathedral were John Calvin used to preach, and we played there. One Sunday morning and great doors opened at the back of this cathedral. And the bells started ringing to call people to worship and a doors open, and you could see out over the rooftops of Geneva, and you could see the Alps in the background. And it was a beautiful. Just a stunning of edifice a beautiful place to play music. And to worship the doors closed maybe dozen and a half people walked in that church that morning to worship..

"And now here's Erin with what happened while we were away. What happened while we were away brought to you by up in flames yesterday, the world launched as one of the planet's most iconic landmarks, and one of the Catholic churches most recognizable cathedrals burned Notre Dame. Theodora in Paris began construction in eleven sixty three and was completed in thirteen forty five shock spread as the cathedral's spire, and then the rest of its roof collapsed in flames Barilla firefighters were able to contain the fire to the buildings upper structure, meaning the two bell towers are still intact as soon as the flames started to subside a photographer for Reuters was able to sneak inside the cathedral and captured this stunning photo. Despite the charred ruins surrounding it the altar and empty cross at the front stood standing on burned. They're not yet conclusive reports. As to what started the fire officials have said that the ongoing restorations to the centuries old building could have something to do with it. There are conflicting reports about the opening of a criminal investigation into the matter. Ansi Pelosi has been taking shots at the socialists slash Alexandria, Cortez wing of her party on Sunday.

And we just had tax day yesterday. David Harsanyi of the federalist will be joining us to talk about that. Plus, another weekly addition of fake news or not Aaron and Todd will decide is this fake news or not that's coming up a little bit later on. But we love to support worthwhile causes with our show, and there is no worth wile 'cause maybe in all of the universe than the word of God. And that's we're back to Jerusalem comes in is one of our partners. They're based in communist, China and their mission their heart. Their ministry is to take the word of God to what are called closed countries. All over the world. Why are they closed because these are nations ruled by oppressive regimes who try their best to close their people off from the scriptures. They don't want them inspire. They don't want them hope filled because inspire. Tired and hope field people have less of a tendency to tolerate being oppressed. And so the mission of back to Jerusalem is to take God's word to places like communist, China, Somalia, Iran, North Korea at cetera. But they need our help. They have put the bible in a small electric downloadable form. It's about the size of a pill that allows it at least makes it easier anyway to get past the gatekeepers in these oppressive regimes.

"According to David Harsanyi at the conservative federalist that. The Boston Globe report was quote Luder ludicrously on skeptical. And said that the percentage of native American blood in her is, quote, a far cry from any reasonable threshold to embrace minority status for job close quote. But that's exactly what Warren did. She applied for a job with Harvard and mentioned that she with native American. New York Times said quote, the average white person in America has nearly double the amount of American Indian DNA as Warren there's little genetic data available from native Americans and these tests merely rely on some guesswork by referencing the DNA to people from South America to suggest warrants dubious. Ancestral claims have been vindicated is an assault on reason into foot. That's the New York Times Jews step across the aisle, and maybe try to convince Senator Warren from Massachusetts to come and be the ambassador to Tonga or someplace like that. No, she wouldn't be my first choice. She's been a very very poor Senator she's passed retarget free far away little legislation. She has been, you know, the funny thing about Elizabeth Warren. She's been a lousy Senator terrible. This presence where she she's done. Jerry, Greg calling her Pocahontas regret that I do. I do regret calling Pocahontas because I think it's a tremendous insult to polka. Right. So I would like to. So I don't see a lot of reaching across the aisle. But who knows? Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has surrendered her security clearance almost back, of course, to the State Department's ongoing review of the mishandling of classified information related to Hillary Clinton's use of a private E mail server, and it also gives you an idea of how slow some things move in government because almost a year and a half ago, the chair of the Senate Judiciary committee Republican Chuck Grassley sent the letter to the State Department asking about the status of Hillary Clinton security clearance, in that letter Grassley stated that any government workers who possibly engaged in such serious. Offenses would at the very minimum had their security clearances suspended pending an investigation well three weeks ago. The State Department finally responded to Senator Grassley 2017 letter saying quoting here at her request former secretary Clinton security clearance was administratively withdrawn on August thirtieth twenty eighteen the letter went on to say. That on September twentieth. The security clearances of five other Clinton. Researchers had also been revoked only Clinton aide Cheryl mills was listed. The other four names were redacted, of course, at the time of the probe. Hillary Clinton was running for president. And no charges were filed this summer, President Trump revoked the security clearance, a former CIA director John Brennan. And at the time the White House said it was reviewing the clearances of several other people so about seventeen months after Grassley sent the letter he finally got a response from the State Department. So it looks as if Hillary did a preemptive strike by surrendering her security clearance as opposed to having it revoked Byron York is a conservative writer in a Fox News contributor of a key issue. Of course, in her secret Email server was that she did send classified information over this unclassified, basically unsecured system. And there's really no doubt about that. I suppose you could argue whether it was. Super important stuff or not. But the the fact that it was classified. She did send it in a casual way over an unsecured system. Seems pretty much beyond dispute now. Now, speaking of Hillary Clinton. Did Bill abused his power because of his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, the intern there are people who look at the incidents of the nineties, and they say a president of the United States cannot have a consensual relationship with an intern the power imbalances to wasn't adult. But let me ask you this. Where's the investigation of the current incumbent against whom numerous allegations have been made? Wow. You see your husband was not investigated because he had an affair in the Oval Office. You're being investigated for whitewater. And it came up during the investigation, and he would not have been impeached. Had he not lie about it. Under oath. And which he dismisses denies ridicules. So there wasn't investigation and it as I believe came out in the right place. And once again, Hillary was not asked about the allegation made by an alleged rape survivor named Juanita broaddrick that two weeks after the alleged rape by Bill Clinton, you Hillary Clinton verbally intimidated her that somehow never came up. He didn't do that to the man the Cavanaugh hearing also turned.

"The white house press briefing addressing the events of this weekend that affected her but actually affecting most of us observing and saying what if we turned into joining us right now to have a conversation about that david harsanyi he is the senior editor at the federalist and his article the real world is starting to resemble twitter and that's a problem thanks david wells said did you point back to social media as being a big part of our civil discourse has deteriorated i wonder if it's just sort of exposed how we have always been but i think we're losing a bit of our inhibitions when it comes to attacking other people and that's that's a problem yeah i agree it's funny in the three o'clock hour that was sort of the conversation is this have have we really taken a turn in our civil discourse or are we just now finally taking down the facade and we're seeing how much we generally don't like each other in this country well i mean i the words civility which was used a lot when the tea party thing was going on i never liked it very much because typically it was meant to undermine debate in a way but but when when when people are throwing you out of restaurant because you disagree with them or joining up a mob to go after people i think that you've maybe crossed a a barrier you don't want to and i think we've seen some democrats stand up and say this isn't right even though in a backhanded way donald donald trump you know we're jerks because donald trump has made us this way yeah but at least at least it's not completely endorsing the idea that we have to shun people we disagree with them that way i love reading an article that basically puts into words something that i'm i'm thinking but haven't found the right words and you sort of put your finger on it here which is if you truly believe if you woke up on the day after election day in two thousand sixteen and you think your country just elected the second coming of hitler if you really believe that those deplorable racists are just like nazis then it's incumbent on you to stand up and get in their face and push back i mean i mean that's to me that's sort of the original sin that that kind of rhetoric was left unabated and an unrepresented frankly when we heard it but we've been hearing that we personally but it's been around since the sixties right in and it's just gotten worse and worse and every republican is fascist or nazi and if you were going to kick someone out of your restaurant because there's their nazi i'm with you i don't want not to my restaurant either but if you really believe that if you do then we have a serious problem in this country because you're not doing enough to stop them you know and and that's when it gets violent and that that's scary and we don't want to go there i don't think most americans want that and i still don't think most americans act in the real world as they do on twitter i've lived in liberal places might tire life and i have good relationships with my neighbors most of the time so my hope is that this is just sort of a temporary moral panic that we're going i'm with you i mean my since the time i was thirteen i've lived in southern california los angeles area new york city in washington dc not the bastions of right wing tolerance right and to be able to forge your way through that to be able to have a career and also have friends in your life you have to figure out a way to have these conversations without you know drawing weapons have we crossed the rubicon here though david harsanyi partly because it's fueled but not just by social media but let's talk about traditional media broadcast television and cable news that amplifies everything time's eleven every day i think that's a big problem i i mean because i'm a conservative or libertarian i think that the problem also is that liberals don't like to hear this at a lot of their lives in sort of moral center of their life is around politics so when you when you elect someone like donald trump tearing down the things you believe in it's like someone going into your you.

"All across america eight six six ninety redeye he is calling and i'm gary mcnamara thanks so much for being here this morning how's everybody doing i dunno thanks for being here for this friday you know as we talked about immigration and what went on the last week i just want to play a big i got an audio cut here from the federal dot com podcasts okay david harsanyi and used to write i think for the denver post and now part of the federalist dot com a a critical thinker and mollie hemingway and i'm gonna play this for for two different reasons first off there as they talk about illegal immigration and what's been going on here and and they make she makes a great point shale she makes a great point at the end talking about that if you go on twitter all all all the left it seems like everybody is for basically for open borders and no rules on immigration right now she points out the american people aren't there yes they assume the american people deserve so you go on social media and you think that's the case but it's not but i just want to play a couple of things that that they talk about that i think really uh hit home i think to a lot of americans here we got her think that the place where everybody can agree is by following rule of law so i think we should talk about how much immigration we want and how we want it and instead what we do is we have these incredibly idiotic debates where we put up different sympathetic group to avoid having a conversation about our borders and enforcement you can be for much higher immigration and still think that we need border enforcement and rule of law to govern this and that's where everyone should be able to come together that we have the fight as a people about what we want our immigration policy to be and then we enforce it and instead it seems like we try and find all these loopholes and it ends up making people who want less immigration even angrier and less trusting of their government because they've seen how this goes how people on both sides of the aisle claim they care about border enforcement they claim they care about immigration policy but really they just kind of want to abdicate responsibility and not enforce it at all you know you know i know many immigrants my family you know my parents were immigrants and no one gets angry about this than people who immigrate here the right way right because they go through a very long process it's not that easy i mean i think we have a million new citizens or immigrants i forget what the number is every year but it is still pretty tough process everyone wants to come here proximity shouldn't give you that much of an advantage i mean i don't think it should so i mean i'm i'm a big fan of immigration but i want to know who's in the country i want them to come here safely do we want children just walking over the border i don't even understand what the argument on the left is here comparing this to nazis and concentration camps i'm not even exaggerating morning joe literally compared ice agents to the nazis who send kids that the showers i mean about how maybe like i can't understand why the white house does such a poor job communicating although i wanna point out that kirchen nelson did a fantastic job of explaining the law and enforcement of the law during her press conference but that was after all the angst had already come down the pike but when you have morning joe and mika brzezinski like losing their ever living minds and just rendering themselves more and more worthless to listen to that's kind of a net win for trump everyone on twitter and media seems to agree that we shouldn't have enforcement of our border laws that doesn't mean that americans agree in fact there there you go in fact as we talked about when it comes to open borders and things and i just want to play the number one they've mentioned a lot of points that we mentioned this week that are hard of what's going on here is the democrats will do anything except to discuss what they actually want when it comes to.

"To church uh there's a great article over at the federalist right now saying that yeah it's a good idea to bring your guns to church why not i mean i've been most people think of a church as sort of a uh done presold right uh a lot of people would think of a church as a place where if you wanted to wreak havoc you could go just like a school we are just like a movie theater you can go and not really see much of a of resistance because they think churchgoers well you know they're just there to pray it'd be peaceful and so i can wreak havoc a no one's going to stop me so do you buy into this do you agree with this article in the federalist that i'm citing this specifically the headline is why bringing a gun to church is a pretty good idea and it's written by david harsanyi whose head on as a guess before and uh you can paxton attorney general texas has basically said dum dum he said i'll quote him here the only thing i i know because you can necessarily keep guns out of the hands of people who are going to violate the law in texas at least we have the opportunity to have concealed carry and so if it's a place where somebody has the ability to carry is always the opportunity that a gunman will be taken out before he has the opportunity to kill very many people that just seems logical but in many people's minds there's a incongruity between a going to church for worship for an expression of your faith for all of the reasons that one goes to church and carrying a instrument of death and by the way just because it's of instrument of death i don't think it's a bad thing because that death can be very righteous death so what do you say do you bring constitute are you thinking of bringing your comes to church let me know what triple eight thirty wmal before it get to your calls i just want to.
