Fresh update on "democratic party" discussed on The Dan Bongino Show
"Know, why am I doing this man? What are we fighting for is it worth it? If your answer is no, I've never said that. You probably lying, but that's okay. Sometimes we lie to ourselves. We deliver ourselves. I know you said it. I've said it, and this is my life. Run for office and an activist. Radio host left my job to do this. Love the conservative cause of liberty and freedom. I love that. Conserving all the things good about this country and scrapping the things that don't work. I love that. It's everything to me. It's all that matters. But self doubt sometimes creeps in. It happens to the best of us, and you say to yourself, whether it's after an election loss, or after a series of election losses, I mean, Democrats do it too when they got smoked Reagan Reagan, George H. W. Bush, those three elections. It was a total catastrophe for them. They established this whole Democrat leadership council to revamp the entire Democratic Party messaging with that desperate. We kind of felt the same way after two terms of Obama. I felt the frustration. And I know what that's like. I know a lot of you know what it's like, too. You know, why are we doing this? Is it worth it? And then this type of story pops up. And then pop up, it's been around a while, but it pops up again. And I say to myself, you know, in the moral arc of history, I absolutely know where on the right side. I have zero doubt about that. Now I know that's a big thing to say. Because independent observer would say, well, this value on both sides was good people on both sides maybe good people on both sides. But there's not good ideas on both sides. There's good ideas and they're sucky ideas. And then there's good ideas and this downright evil ideas. And unfortunately, when you look at these pure evil ideas like the sexualizing of kids, that is an idea that only exists exclusively on one side of the political aisle and that's what the radical far left. Not all Democrats are not stigmatizing them all. But the idea that we should somehow defend, not just abhorrent, not just disgusting, not just grotesque, but vile, evil. I mean, evil basement level evil gets no worse. The idea that this should somehow be defended or excused. The sexualizing of kids is an idea that only has a home on the far left. That's a fact. No one in the on the right side of the political spectrum would be accepted in a conservative or libertarian movement, supporting the sexualization of children. Sorry. So I'm sitting around last night and early this morning, putting together some ideas for the show. And I have this idea in my head about this. I've been wanting to talk about it for a while. Kind of let the balenciaga scandal. That's a fashion house that put together a photo shoot. Implying somehow child pornography was, I mean, they had a child pornography, a suit, the lawsuit, the paperwork from it in the background. There was a teddy bear and bondage. I'm sorry if you have kids listening, it's just that the imagery is really disgusting. And I didn't cover it over the last couple of days. I want to see how this fleshed out. I mean it. I left it for a reason. I wanted to see what the response on the left was going to be. And I've got to tell you outside of the rams, I think in LA now if I'm watching it, they were in LA, right? I still think they were in St. Louis. That wide receiver Cooper Cooper Cup is cup right now. I know it's embarrassing folks. I used to know a lot about sports. That's so much anymore. But I'm admitting it. Outside of him speaking out, the response on the left has been relatively muted. You've got this major fashion house, balenciaga. That puts together this disgusting grotesque display, seemingly excusing child sexualization. Now they've since smiled. The lawsuit against the photographer did it long story, but I will give you both sides because that's what we do here. And the response, the left was so incredibly muted, you say to yourself, what the do you have to do to be condemned by a leftist anymore? What do you got to do? What do you have to do? You know, it should say something to you, having spent a career in law enforcement before I wound up on the radio. Any cop listening, you know I'm right when I tell you this. There's like one thing in prison that even though worst prisoners look down on. You could be a murderer, home invader, burglar, car thief, financial fraudster, stole money from your own grandmother. There is one group of people in prison, even the worst, the dregs of society, the dregs, they look at and they go, that guy's disgusting. It's the person who sexualizes and attacks kids. Pedophiles. They are despised in prison. So what the hell does it say to you? That when you're a leftist, there are people who are still excusing this behavior. It is freaking bananas man. It is so crazy. And that's why we have a ruffle. I last election one so great for us. It wasn't bad, it wasn't great. The midterms did, okay, took the house, Senate, we'll see what happens, but we'll do no better than a push. That's okay. Sometimes after that, I get a lot of data. I want to give up a sock. It's like there's a lot of things stuck. It's not giving up. It's not giving up. It's all good. It's a boxing match. Don't give it up. It's not a golf game here. It's a boxing match. You give up the other guys still kicking your ass. There's no giving up. Giving up certain option. I'm really sorry. There's no giving up. And when you hear stories like this, how could you want to give up? Say they steal every single election going forward and admit it. You're just going to acquiesce to the far left's demands that we somehow brush off the sexualization of kids and allow it to happen. Drag queen story hour, grown men and fishnet stocking, shaking their butts and kids faces. You're just going to let you're just going to let that happen. Of course you are. And I don't mean to sound. Condescending. It's not my intention. You're not. Of course you're not. It's not a serious question. It's just an inquiry for some out there who may have questioned giving up. But it stays like today when I wake up in the show comes together, that I feel like, no, no
Razorfirst and Sebastian Discuss the Mechanics of Collecting Ballots
"I have drawn the following conclusions. Tell me if I'm off base or what's missing, raise the 5th. My take is the following. Where we have normal elections, let's say, two weeks of voting, we should do politics. We should campaign on a message, build a platform, get that candidate in front of as many people as possible and have rallies. Everywhere else, like Pennsylvania with 50 days, Virginia with 45 days. I mean, a Republican government, 45 days of voting, it's not about elections anymore, razor fist. It's about the mechanics of collecting ballots, not votes collecting ballots, and we just have to build that machine. And policies, platforms really don't matter because if Pennsylvania can vote for federman, then this isn't about politics. What do you think? Well, and some states come right out with it. They even venerate. I mean, California law venerates the practice, just explicates it is actually legal to ballot harvest. Right. Which makes it makes it a really tough sell in all the states where the Democratic Party is pretend that ballot harvesting does not exist and is a conspiracy theory. California doesn't seem to think so. They actually passed a law passing it. The thing that's hilarious about what you mentioned was Katie Hobbs, of course, the candidate that Carrie Lake was running against. It's bigger than that. People outside of Arizona only know Carrie Lake is the charismatic person that they've caught maybe an advertisement or a speech from. But here in Arizona, she had been a journalist and very, very visible here for over two decades. She was in the biggest markets from north to south for 25 years. She was a phase, right? Absolutely. And what's worse, her opponent was in charge of the election,
Fresh update on "democratic party" discussed on The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast
"Them to destroy our image when they're the ones that are destroying our country. And I wanted to ask you a little bit about this term LatinX because the left has gotten very into using that term, though I don't find that a lot of people actually use the term. And I saw you tweeted about that. So what's kind of your reaction to the LatinX term? Honestly, Latinos don't use that. So these are people that are honestly not Latinos or not Hispanics, don't understand or culture that is not who we are. We've always been Latinos. It will continue to be Latino. It's not going to change. But it's just nonsense. And they want us to focus on the nonsense and our focus on the real issues that are impacting our everyday American. Yeah. And I do think that many people want actual solutions. They actually want their life to be better. Like you mentioned talking about the economy, also talking about crime, talking about God, those things really influences people, but when you start to make it about really silly terms, like Latin X, it doesn't really resonate. And so maybe over time, a lot of people in that area will continue to move in the conservative direction. Do you find that the strategies there are generally working well or do you feel like we still have a lot of issues we need to overcome there? Well, there is a lot of issues that we have to overcome. But I think that it's all about growing and making us better. Every election and we've come wiser, I'm not the same person that I was in 2018, 2020. We grow every every year, every day, and that's what it's all about learning and being better and also learning from our mistakes. And just moving forward, that it's all it's about, for me, I think what I learned in this election is to defend myself more, you know, that it's so important that not to Allah allow them to spread this misinformation, constantly, yes, let's focus on the issues that matter, but also stand up. Let's stand up for ourselves for the party for the people because when we stand up for ourselves, we're standing for the hardworking American people. So it's so important that we are not afraid that we stand up and that we call it for what it is. There are the extremists. They're really dangerous to this country. The party, not the people. The Democratic Party, because there's a big difference, I believe that the people here in South Texas regardless of their political affiliation were good people where people of God were people of family and hard work. That is who we are. But the party itself is destroying our country. Yeah, for sure. And at least you also got Elon Musk's vote. So he was smart and devoted for you. What is some advice you would maybe give to some people who were elected. And whether it's a swing district or maybe somewhere in South Texas, I think I can't remember the name, but someone else from the triple threat was elected, what is something you would say to them as they go forward? No one is really talking about this win and we need to talk about it more. Wanting to tell is the first Latina to ever get elected in district 15. She made history. She's the first Republican over a hundred years I'm very proud of her and the work that she's been doing here for years. We didn't lose the voice in South Texas. Monica de la Cruz is our voice in Washington and we're very proud of her and all I could say is she knows what she's doing. She's amazing and my advice to all members of Congress is to focus on their district and the people that they represent. Not so much what's going on on Twitter or what depending on Twitter to run their district based on the people that they represent to talk to the people. That's what's reality. That's what truth when you talk to the people that elected you to be in the position that you're in. Right. Regardless of what their political affiliation, it's so important to hear our site is going to make us better. Great. Thank you, Myra. I appreciate it. Thank you. I try to eat healthy, but I'm not a big fan of the flavor of veggies. But I have to admit, when I'm in the produce section, all those vibrant colors of fruits and veggies look really good.

If you eat only your favorite one or two veggies, you're missing a whole world of vital nutrients.

The Link Between the DNC and FTX With Natalie Winters
"Published numerous articles on this topic on the FDX scandal. Your expertise in the past for us has been on COVID. What's going on in China? We're going to discuss all that and more. Please follow this lady right now. Natalie winters on Twitter. So let's begin at the beginning. I'm a complete neophyte, I'm a skeptic Bitcoin is all a big con, although I do like, you know, a financial system or a carrier of worth. It is independent of the fed and other government influences. But give us the basics. Let's start at the beginning. Who is Caroline Ellison? And who is this Sam bankman of freed? What do we need to know about FTX? Because they had their own currency, but this is also a kind of aggregator of other Bitcoin investments. But you give us the one O one, please. Sure. I too am a luddite in the sense that I think cryptocurrency is a scam and it always has been in this whole FTX incident is just the latest example of that, but there's really interesting political ramifications really worldwide that you can sort of tease out from the unraveling of FTX. So I think most people know Sam bankman freed. I think that interview you just played of Caroline Allison is probably a close runner up to some of the more awkward interviews that SBS has given. But Sam bankman freed really became one of the leading donors to the Democratic Party during the 2020 campaign. Of course, in the midterms. And other second biggest off the George Soros, correct? $40 million. But also other, I know you know that I talk a lot about COVID and the Chinese Communist Party. They're also links with FTX there as well. But sandbank has also been sort of bankrolling using his billions of dollars to fund different advocacy groups that aren't even necessarily political expenditures in a campaign sense, but his brother. Lots of conservative ones I'm sure like Second Amendment pro life organizations. Right, Natalie. Oh, of course. Yeah, no, not quite. One of my favorite ones, because again, as Steve always says on board, there are no conspiracies only coincidences. But Sam bankman freed's brother was actually appointed to run a group called guarding against pandemics where they deployed hundreds of thousands of dollars to run ads to help Joe Biden pass pandemic legislation, but before I get into the weeds on that, all of that to say that SPF is a major power player within the kind of ecosystem of democratic campaign financing, but it's more than just that $40 million sum that was deployed in the most recent midterm election.
Fresh update on "democratic party" discussed on Mark Levin
"Lot. And there's a videotape of it that has never been released. Why is that? Khalid, Rashid khalidi. Is I radical? Who's defended Hamas? Supported. At least in part, their mission. That's Obama. Ever. Never. Here we have David rutz. From the free Beacon sharpton heavily courted by 2020 Democrats. 2019, how sharpen is heavily courted by Democrats seeking his endorsement as they pursue the 2020 presidential nomination? Let's see. Who went to visit him to kiss his ring, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Kirsten gillibrand. Beto o'rourke. Trapped in has become a mainstream figure in the Democratic Party in sharp contrast to his early days as a fiery jumpsuit wearing racial antagonists known for his inventive against Jews and police. Yes. Which wound up in very, very violent activities, including death. But the Democrats consult with him, he was at the Obama White House repeatedly. He's been Biden has spoken to him, including most recently about talking to him about running in 2024 again. He's been a much tighter at the time with Michael Bloomberg who was then the mayor. And he's just swell now. And of course, he hasn't shown MSNBC. And he's a frequent guest on some of the other programs, including with scar bar where he's apparently an expert on the anti semitism. Among others, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, charade Brown, Amy Klobuchar. Many of them are Jewish. I went to see sharpton. Have you ever heard of that? Was there a lot of reporting on it? Were Democrats asked about it? What did Trump can't have to say to anybody? Chuck Todd was still in his diapers. How about the other Sunday shows? Look at this, reports Netanyahu humiliated by Obama snub. How can you imagine Obama doing that to the leader of any other country? In the Middle East or the continent of Africa or Southeast Asia? No. But the Jew Netanyahu not a problem. For a head of government to visit The White House and not post for photographers as rare for a key ally to be left to his own devices. While the president withdraws, I have dinner in private wasn't till this week unheard of. Yet this is how Benjamin Netanyahu was treated by Obama on Tuesday night according to Israeli reports on a trip viewed in Jerusalem as a humiliation. If they're failing to extract a written promise of concessions on settlements, you know, settlements, Judea and samaria with the Jews of the indigenous peoples, they're the only indigenous peoples the left wing Democrats don't recognize. Obama walked out of his meeting with Netanyahu, but invited him to stay at The White House consult with the visors and let me know if there's anything new. A U.S. congressman who spoke to the prime minister said it was awful, said that congressman, one Israeli newspaper called the meeting, a hazing and stage is poisoned by such mistrust. That the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risking eavesdropped on. By The White House. His Obama ever treated any other head of state. Even an enemy head of state that way. Then there was this. Carry speech undermines is remember this speech in a speech from Jerusalem, Netanyahu criticized Kerry for spending more time criticizing Israeli semin activity. They condemning Palestinian acts of terror. He said the remarks were almost as unbalanced as a UN Security Council resolution ratified last week that denounced Israel's settlements in Israel territory. Israelis do not need to be lectured about the importance of peace by foreign leaders Netanyahu said. The Israeli leader said the conflict with the Palestinians has always been about Israel's very right to exist and we know this from Talib. Who talked about pushing them into the Mediterranean
Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker Will Have a Runoff in Georgia
"Again, an interesting perspective we'll talk about, let's just go ahead and talk about Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock right now. Is it important if you're a Georgia listener to this podcast in particular for you to go out and vote a Republican to go out and vote? Yes. I know that it's not for the control of the Senate anymore. I know it's not what we had hoped it to be, but it still matters. 51 senators from the Democratic Party in the United States Senate then can control committees. And then they can make sure that they get out whatever they want to get out of committee. Now, granted, we do have the house now to stop some of this. But that's an important thing, especially when it comes to judges that the Biden administration is going to try and pack through here the next two years. Keeping that 50 50 means that it has to come to the floor. And then it's just, it makes it a lot harder to get those judges out. And it means Democrats are put in more pressure. Especially on judges that are on the fringe of being appointments. So the 51 50 matters, you either going to have a power sharing agreement or you're going to have complete control by the Democrats. So Republicans in Georgia, if you want to say Republicans maintain at least a power sharing agreement in the United States Senate, you need to get out and vote for walker. Walker experienced a 200,000 less votes than governor Kemp and other members of the Republican statewide tickets which, by the way, this idea that Georgia had flipped in Georgia was a purple state in Georgia and it didn't happen. In fact, if it wasn't for the walker race, it was a complete beatdown in Georgia by Republicans led by the governor Brian Kemp and others on the democratic candidates up and down the line. And it's just amazing to me that the very little that is being reported about this. I mean, there were AJC reporters. And rightfully so, wrote books about how Georgia had flipped. Will it flip in one election for very different rains mainly the fact that Republicans just did not show back up to the polls in a runoff last year,
Dave Rubin: We Have to Accept Some Will Vote Democrat No Matter What
"You were a former man of the left So you understand both sides here Yeah This election wasn't great Get it but we took back the house today We got really close and you're seeing minority voters and working class voters move over to our side Now not only a man formerly the leopard you lived in California up to recent I don't think this was the apocalypse everybody thinks it is I think it's the start of something big a realignment Yeah well look first off just getting the house even though it's by a razor thin margin and we all thought the Senate was gonna happen and I you know I was a little less bullish on some of the governor stuff but I have to say I'm surprised that somebody like Whitmer survived this thing She was just the worst son of the worst And if people seemingly want more of that stuff Michigan was a bloodbath Yeah We're on a wj arts an awesome station over there It's a legacy station Hot tip are W JR crew The Michigan was a bloodbath Republicans I don't get it Tutor Dixon I thought she was an excellent candidate she crushed her in the debate It's just we just have to accept that there's a certain amount of people I don't know if it's 40% of America or exactly what it is They are going to vote Democrat no matter what right So we have to figure out how do you get maybe the 10% that can move And I think the 10% that can move are actually the ex lives the people that are waking up they're going wait a minute This is not the Democratic Party
Charles Payne: Did Sam Bankman-Fried Buy Protection From Democrats?
"But it's very interesting to me the Democrats don't seem really angry about this Here they are busy getting things done that they want to rush through but they don't even want a hearing on this The SEC the failures there and the other regulatory entities that are out there You have big tech that monitors their own platforms but apparently didn't care about this And I look at this and I say to myself was this guy buying protection from the Democrat party because the Democrats are much more aggressive in their investigations and Republicans Right Yeah it's possible And in fact I had a guest on today who was a Bitcoin expert And it's not just the Democratic Party in the regulators but the media Since all of this has come out yesterday The New York Times wrote a glowing article about this guy Never mentioned a word fraud never mentioned the word crimes never mentioned any of those words They did talk about how little sleep he gets and Internet he was frugal even though he has a $40 million pad in The Bahamas He flies around in private jets Vox wrote an article saying that the talk of him having influence over the Democrats is over is oversimplified or exaggerated Forbes wrote an article suggesting he and his parents practice I think you call it it's called utilitarianism and apparently this doctrine that you go through life and you try to help as many people as possible So Forbes wrote an article saying whatever he did was altruistic in an effort to help other people This is the media circling the wagons around this guy who has ripped off a million people are now creditors in this bankruptcy Billions of dollars and they're making him out they're still trying to make them out to be a hero
DeSantis Vs. Trump; Who Should Win?
"In the straw polls or whatever term would be used in the polling in Iowa and other states desantis is more favored than president Trump. I beg Trump supporters to understand that any Republican is better than any Democrat. That the gulf is unbridgeable. That's it. That's all I'm asking, I'm asking of people, I was a passionate defender of the president, I claim to this day, I said to his face at Mar-a-Lago a few months ago, thought he was the finest president in Abraham Lincoln. Kink a more supportive than that. But my bigger agenda than Donald Trump is defeating the Democratic Party, which is now a left wing party for the first time in American history. It was largely liberal. It is now left, and the left destroys everything it touches.
Sam Bankman-Fried: Fallen Crypto CEO and Democrat Donor
"I'm here to talk today about this crypto guy, the crypto billionaire, Sam bankman fried. And his rapid fall from grace. Now this is a guy who very assiduously cultivated the media. He was only 30 years old. So it is a 30 year old billionaire and there were all these articles I was seeing from places like fortune and Forbes. He's the new Warren Buffett. He's a new Carnegie. And I'm thinking, wow, well, didn't Warren Buffett build up his expertise and wisdom, painfully, over many, many years, if not decades, and isn't the same true of Rockefeller and Carnegie and so many other of the old tycoons, so and I think the point of these articles was, yeah, well, this guy must be even smarter because he's only 30 and look where he is. So in other words, he has figured out a much faster road to success than even some of the old revered names captains of industry and of finance. Well, it turns out that this sandbank went freed was running a kind of a Ponzi scheme. It seems or a some have said even a money laundering operation. And here is the political implications. He's been running a kind of scheme to the benefit of the Democratic Party. Now, some could argue, wait a minute and she also did give some money to Republicans and while that's true, in fact, apparently gave a little bit of money to McConnell. The vast vast majority of his contributions have been to Democrats.
Rep. Jim Jordan: If Not McCarthy, Who Else Could Be House Speaker?
"Here's my question though is a practical matter Who else could get enough votes to be speaker I don't see it as people mention you but you're not running So who is and look I think it's a good point I don't know because it looks like we're going to get to two 20 So any three people can stop anyone from being anyone from being speaker on Republican side So I do think it's important that we figure out how we can come together and it seems to me the guy who has been leading who actually got you the majority deserves a chance to lead that majority And I think we'll see what happens here this week in coming weeks But I think that makes sense to me And we're going to have to figure out how we come together as a team Because I always put any difference between the most moderate member and conservative members people who think like you and I in the Republican conference pales pales in comparison to the difference between Republicans and the left which now control the Democratic Party Remember two months ago there was a survey 55% of Democrats do not believe America's the greatest nation ever What The majority of one of the two major political parties doesn't believe what you and I and all your listeners know to be true This is the greatest nation ever and they don't think that So that's how radical they are We had better figure out a way we hang together conservatives and not as conservative Republicans and how we hang together to stop what they want to do what the Democrats want to do to this nation
Dinesh Continues to Reflect on the Midterm Results
"I gotta say this is a very dispiriting disheartening frustrating midterm election. And it has a lot of people on our side really dejected and a little freaked out because for a number of reasons. First of all, it appears to be the third bad election for us. 2018 was about election. In which the control of Congress slipped out of our hands, remember in 2016 we had both houses of Congress and the presidency. So we didn't have that after 2018. Then, of course, there was 2020. And now 2022. The strange thing about all this is that these have been, particularly 2020 and 2022, close elections. But close elections in which the close races seem to fall the other way. And so if you look at 2022, when you look at the overall votes, the Republican Party got 5 million more votes than the Democratic Party. Now this has no kind of electoral significance. This is like the left saying that Hillary won the popular vote. But the reason I mention it is that when you win more votes and yet you lose seats and you lose Senate seats and you even lose House seats that you should have won, you have to ask, why is it the case that you got the numbers on your side? But the actual victories are going bear side. It's kind of like saying, I have more overall points, but I'm always losing sets. And I'm losing the tennis match as a result.
"democratic party" Discussed on The Larry Elder Show
"For our society, if you don't have anything to replace it with. Yeah, I can see that point overall Uncle Tom two was really well done talking about the Marxism that I mean, obviously the Marxism that runs a deep in the Democrat party and how they used a lot of white leaders, if you will, and that Marxist ideology and kind of infiltrated the black church and so on, et cetera. But I would agree with you on doctor Martin Luther King. I think God, regardless of all of the things that transpired and the things that he had done, I think God used him mightily. Regardless of that, listen, we only have a couple minutes left with you. I know you have to move on to another interview. I do want to get your take real quickly, doctor swain on this idea that there was a big switch that took place and also affirmative action just if you could speak to us about those couple of issues in the next couple of minutes here. Well, I can tell you that affirmative action is not something that the civil rights protesters are the leaders of the civil rights movement did not demand affirmative action. They wanted non discrimination. Affirmative action that was race based that came from white male elites in the Nixon administration mostly that pushed that and this thing about the big switch it's not supported by what we have seen take place among Democrats and Republicans. The Republican Party has always been the party of civil rights and you see that a continuing because they're the party that fight for the unborn. They fight for the elderly with the Democratic Party, they have used a lot of lies and deception to manipulate people. It was the southern Democrats that resisted the civil rights movement and because Johnson signed the legislation, he gets credit, you know, for being the president of civil rights, but Johnson was a known racist. Yes. So at the end of the day, you know, history is distorted. I can tell you my home state of Virginia that in Virginia, it was the Democrats that resisted school integration by the time schools integrated in Virginia. It was 1969 or 1968. Linwood Holton, the first Republican governor, sought a made history by taking his small school aged children by the hand, enrolled in them into Richmond public schools when the schools were predominantly black. So we Republicans live the life, talk the talk, walk the walk, they're not limousine liberals like the Democrats we see. And they didn't take over the house until 1994, so big switch. Just nonsense. Democrats had been cheating and elections. They had perfected cheating in elections. Oh my God. People really do need to study that history. Man, so good, so good. Doctor swain listen, we need a minute to upload before you go here. But I hope that you will come back. It's just fascinating. Listening to you and your knowledge of history and politics and your faith is absolutely inspiring. I'd love to have you back to you to talk about your business and what you're doing to kind of root out CRT and DEI in corporate America. I just think that would be a fascinating conversation. But I tell you, I really appreciate the work that you do. I appreciate your openness, your honesty. I appreciate your fight to make sure that people continue to have the American Dream right here in these United States of America. God bless you for all you're doing, doctor swain. Thank you.

Really do appreciate you. God bless you..
John Zmirak: America Is Patty Hearst
"Talk about the piece that you wrote behind you. People who watch this on video can see behind you the image of a young Patty Hearst, symbiote, the symbionese Liberation Army in the 70s when we were kids kidnapped her. She was of extremely wealthy heiress. And people who are younger wouldn't know this, but something happened. Her captors sort of brainwashed her into thinking the way they were thinking. So that she sided with the people who tortured and raped and kidnapped her. And it's called Stockholm syndrome. And you've written a piece that's streamed dot org that deals with that. So go ahead and tell us about that piece. Yeah, Patti Hearst was grabbed by a bunch of San Francisco radicals of the kind that formed Kamala Harris, Willie Brown was the political mentor of Kamala Harris. He was also the political mentor of Harvey Milk, the gay activist and the reverend Jim Jones, the left wing cult leader who started that compound in Guyana and got everyone to take cyanide and drink in the Kool-Aid. This ferment, this world of crazed radicalism is what gave birth to the woke movement, which currently dominates the entire Democratic Party and is being posed on the United States.
Eric Weighs In on the Midterm Election Results
"You feel about the results of the midterm elections? Here's the big one. Are they what you expected? What does Republicans have in control of the House mean for the next two years? Well, this is complicated. I think I'm sorry to say, I think there was a lot of cheating and malfeasance that's my new favorite word that went on. And that this is what the Democratic Party has been doing over the decades, but it's gotten much worse. They've just figured out that we know how to win and we're just going to do what it takes to win. So it's a little complicated. I think that even though we won some major races on the Republican side, there were a number that I think were probably stolen. And so my response is, I think we have to work harder to fight for transparency for election transparency. We have to fight to get rid of the machines to have same day voting. But we really all have to fight. And I think that people of faith in particular ought to understand, this is an issue of justice. This is an issue of fairness. We're supposed to be against corruption. We really need to fight so that we know so that everyone knows if you lose an election you lost fairly because
Leo Terrell: Republican Establishment Will Always Attack Trump
"Regarding Trump I'm glad you asked that question I was at Mar-a-Lago a couple of days ago Dan you know this was well as I do The Democratic Party hates Donald Trump but the Republican establishment they can't stand him And they will try to throw him under the bus any time This man's endorsement is the only endorsement that's worth something They always want to attack him on the negative but what he has accomplished for America He's the reason why I'm a Republican He's the reason why Hispanics have moved to the Republican Party He has changed He has changed the Republican Party into a working class party The Democrats are the elite Why Because of Donald J Trump who is going to be our next president
Monica Crowley: I Think Normal Americans Will Destroy the Dems
"Think normal Americans are going to destroy the Democratic Party tomorrow. And I include parents in that. I think normal Americans, the exact people that you are talking about, who might vote every four years for president, but are not particularly political, are now awake. They're not woke. There are awake. And they may not serve understand the overarching Marxist revolution that we are experiencing right now. That has been ongoing in this country since the 1950s that began as a KGB operation to destroy this country from within. They might not understand that big picture element to it. But what they do understand is when they go to the grocery store, they now have to put items back that they want because they can't afford it. Or when they go to the gas station, they're filling half their tank because to fill a whole tank would set them back for the rest of the week. Or the fact that their children are being indoctrinated into critical race theory or being sexualized or that their sexuality at a very young age is being discussed with teachers and others without parental involvement. I think all of those things, their communities flooded with fentanyl, everybody knows somebody who's accidentally overdosed because of all the drugs flowing across the border. I think those things have turned a lot of people on to the absolute historic catastrophe that is the Biden administration and total democratic control. So even if they don't get the bigger picture of what Obama once called the fundamental transformation of the nation, what they do understand is that their lives are a lot worse today than they were just two years ago under president Trump. And Republican control at least for the most part, they are poor and they are less safe.
Does Donald Trump Understand the Fight Ahead? Dick Morris Explains
"Suppose Trump understands now what is at stake and what he has to do to drain the swamp and whom he has to fire and what kind of a fight he has to bring to the marxists that have taken over the Democratic Party. Yes, and yes and yes, I'm just scoring enormously. I expected Trump several times a week, including last night. And Trump is very much aware of all of that and very enthusiastic about it. There'll be no more cotton into the establishment by him. You'll see it in his appointments. You'll see it in his style and in his substance. And Eric, I have to go in a minute, but let me just outline the future. Trump is going to be the candidate. Trump is going to win the election because the economy will go to hell, even worse than it is now. And any Republican will win. Then because we went through this, we're going through this recession. Historically, after you get through recession like that, inflation and then recession, you've cleared out all the bad businesses you've cleared out all the bad debt. You cleared out the unproductive enterprises. And the economy soars like it did under Reagan like it did under Clinton after they got out of the doldrums. And I think it will do that under Trump.
Tucker Carlson: What Is Democracy?
"Tucker Carlson makes a great point about democracy. You want to know what democracy is. Listen to Tucker Carlson's point last night about what democracy should look like because democracy is at stake. Nothing less than the future of democracy is at stake. Really? It's nonsensical to Americans, most of them, because isn't this democracy? Dissatisfied with one thing, we're choosing another, isn't that our most basic right? No. Not according to the people you just saw. And keep in mind those weren't just talking points you heard. The people mouthing those words believe them sincerely. Every one of them, and they're emotional about it, because if the Democratic Party goes, so do they. The party is the only power they have. Once that party has been rejected, there will be nothing but what they already are. Sad middle aged mediocrities with tragic personal lives and nothing interesting to say. So everything is on the line for them. They can't lose. He's right. He's right on the money because what we're witnessing is democracy. And what we might be witnessing is a reset, a reboot, a rescue of a country from the diabolical clutches of the left. That has opened our borders that has destroyed our economy that has, I mean, unleashed the ravages of violent crime in the streets of America because of district attorneys, radical leftist Democrat, district attorneys who will not prosecute criminals who do not believe in incarcerating criminals.
The Vietnam War and the Legacy Media
"Some books have an interesting confluence of events around them when they come on to my radio show. When I was reading, I finished that outlined only the strong was the first time I had met on the radio hang khao. And Han kal came in the United States as a refugee from Vietnam. He was a captain in the navy special forces warrior, amazing American. He received the camp Pendleton in an operation that my brother in law then a captain back from his second tour in Vietnam was partially involved in and my brother in law was at the house when I was talking to Han cow and we talked about that operation. The people who fought Vietnam are still here. They're still with us in large numbers, and they're still proud of their service. But the folks who ran away from it and who have devoted their lives to denying what we were about are still here too. And they're deeply embedded in the media senator. I am curious about the media's reaction to only the strong because you're hitting right at the heart of the people who run legacy media. It is the Vietnam generation and the people that they hired. Yeah, I mean, here today, the most of the legacy media is just a press adjunct of the Democratic Party and the progressive movement in America. Is that right not only the strong, the media had essentially declared war in the home front. You had Walter Cronkite, for instance, saying that Ted offensive had been a major disaster when, in effect, our troops in Vietnam had essentially destroyed the vietcong on a gorillas in South Vietnam as a fighting force. He had The New York Times consistently leaking and trying to undermine the war effort leader of the salzburger family at the time who owns The New York Times. Saying he didn't know what America had to offer. The Vietnamese that was any better than the communists.
Rick Santorum: Good Signs for Dr. Oz in Pennsylvania
"Is certainly in odds as favor, although at this race hasn't been put to bed by any stretch of the imagination. There's still very, very close. There's some good signs out there. Number one, the early voting. We have, we don't have early voting locations, so you can't vote in person early and Pennsylvania, but there is no excuses, absentee ballots, so you can request an absentee ballot and vote early. And what we've seen so far this year is that that number is dramatically down from 2020, more so than what would be typical of a difference between a presidential election year and a midterm election year. And so that's not good news for the Democrats Democrats on early votes back in 2020. We've got about 75 to 80% of the vote. And so the fact that that number is down substantially for them, they show indicate a lack of enthusiasm of Democrats, they probably don't have as good an election day turnout operation as Republicans do because Republicans count on day of voting. And so are more oriented to getting the people out on election day. We're Democrats count more on mail in voting. So that's a good sign for the ticket overall for congressional races, governors race, not just the Senate race. But this still is unfortunately in politics today in a state like Pennsylvania or many of these deeply divided states where it's very close. Sort of two camps and no one, everyone starts to brush aside the problems with the candidates as long as the candidate is pure. And that's the case of John fetterman. He's a pure progressive. And so the base of the Democratic Party is going to vote for him where he can do the job or not. As is the issue is he's not really seen as pure. He's not seen as a pennsylvanian. And that's really hampered him and his ability to sort of close the deal in Pennsylvania so it's still a very tight race.
The Left Vs the Leftists
"The left is getting further to the left. I mean, they're becoming more entrenched. If you look at the candidates on the ballot next week, Mandela bonds in Wisconsin, John fetterman in Pennsylvania, Rafael warnick, your colleague in the Senate. In Georgia, these are hard left. I mean, they are Elizabeth Warren was out there already. They are not liberal. They are not liberal leftists. They are hard left. Is that is there a party capable of stopping that tumble off of the wilsonian edge? Well, they're not capable of that. The defeat they're going to receive next week, just a small foretaste of what's to come in 2024 and beyond. And you see some of the Schroeder minds in the Democratic Party recognizing this, trying to get out in front of it to avoid blame. Like Barack Obama in the same interview where he claimed to regret that he didn't, that he wished it had supported the green movement in 2009 Iran when in reality he failed to support it on purpose because he didn't want to deny to us. He also said that, you know, we can sometimes be buzzkills and skulls that we get upset if people don't use exactly the right language. Now, again, Barack Obama is a deep and committed ideologue, but he's also a shrewd politician. What you see with a lot of the people you named is that their deep ideologues, they're simply not true politicians. They don't have the good sense to mask those sentiments during the election season.
"democratic party" Discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King
"I am deeply vexed, troubled, frustrated, angry, that in one of the blackest states in America, where Democrats could have power, where black people could be in power. Never mind the reality that the democratic governor of Louisiana is a white man. That the head of the Democratic Party in Louisiana is a white woman. What the majority of voters for Democrats are black. But the majority of major representation is white, which is crazy in and of itself. It may not be crazy in the Deep South. Because why folk have been doing it that way for a very long time, but we're seeing people wake up to that ignorance in Georgia, where you are seeing Rafael Warnock be the United States senator, where you are seeing a black woman like Stacey Abrams, run for governor of Georgia. But and getting major support from the Democratic Party of Georgia, but Louisiana has not caught up yet. And the chair of the Democratic Party, a white woman, a conservative white woman, named Katie bernhardt, tried to be slick. And a point a black man named Travis Johnson. As the vice chair, because here's the reality, a lot of people are going to look and say, oh, that's a black man she appointed. We have a black vice chair of the Democratic Party. And theoretically, this man would be in line to eventually become the chair of the Democratic Party. Just this summer alone. Travis Johnson, who was in the state legislature. Literally was the only black Democrat. That voted for the Republican plan. To gerrymander and redistrict Louisiana. Literally, Louis, Louisiana is being sued. For the discrimination in their redistricting plan, that is, ostracizing and eliminating black voters in the rights of black voters in the rights of black representation, in this black man was the only black Democrat to vote for the Republican plan. And black Democrats in the legislature were outraised. This this black man Travis Johnson that Katie bernhardt appointed as her vice chair. Has now made a habit of skipping the votes. That really, really matter to Democrats. He has skipped several very important votes. Over and over and over again, that matter to Democrats and black people in general. And then it's actually showing up to vote for Republican plans. Republican ideas, he is supported so much by Republicans. That Republicans decided to host and not as a joke. Republicans in Louisiana decided to post and throw a fundraiser for him that he supported, I kid you not. Travis Johnson, state representative Travis Johnson, had the most prominent Republicans in Louisiana. Throwing him a public fundraiser. I'm literally talking about the caucus chair of the state legislature. For the Republicans, who is a Ardent supporter of Donald Trump, is throwing this man a fundraiser. And he is now doing the bidding. Of Republicans. Listen to me. What we see in Louisiana is that a lifelong conservative has become the chair of the party and she then found a deeply conservative black man that is so aligned with Republicans that Republicans are throwing him fundraisers. That is now voting for the Republican plans to redistrict and gerrymander an ostracized black voters in black representation. He's voting for their plans. And these are the number one and number two people running the Democratic Party in Louisiana. It's crazy. So it's no wonder. No wonder whatsoever. That they then found a way after the executive committee of the Democratic Party voted to endorse Gary chambers for the United States Senate. That these men and women who run the party. Said no, no, no, no, no, no. Even though you all voted with the majority vote to endorse Gary, we're going to block that endorsement. These people are not working for the people. They're not working for the constituents of the Democratic Party. They are working for conservatives. This woman, Katie bernhardt, donate it to the Republican that ran against the current democratic governor. She donated to the Republican candidate. Against the current democratic governor of Louisiana and is now the chair of the party, house way. How? And then plant it a black man that is daily selling out his own black constituents. Appointed him to be vice chaired a party. Lord have mercy. Know their names. Katie bernhardt and the vice chair of the party see Travis Johnson. I'm often skeptical of anybody that uses their first initial as a part of their name. Sea Travis Johnson. Okay, brother. Okay. As he literally votes against the best interest of black people, siding with white conservatives, Republicans. In some of the most important votes of the year, hell no, it's crazy. That this man and this woman are leading the Democratic Party. It's a scandal. That they're leading the Democratic Party of Louisiana. And anybody that says otherwise, listen, here's how crazy it is. Ask me what the last job Katie bernhardt had was. She literally was and in some ways still appears to be

George marshall Because he just didn't believe it and the democratic party for a lot of generations was the reflexively pro israel the republicans were not anti-israel but and presidents like president nixon. Who's you know. I didn't receive much credit in that time. But in the nineteen seventy three war when israel's back was to the wall President nixon exercise extraordinary leadership in resupplying the israeli military and really make all the difference coming out of that with a victory so but really the the democratic party was the most reliable pro israel party now does change and the republican party for a lot of reasons is the one that really seems to its instinct. It's almost like it's a bloodstream. The party pro israel. The democrats are still mostly that way. But now there's a whole new group part of it is soak both squad or the be more moderate.

"Chicago dyke march roaches and lgbt march in chicago and they ban people from flying a flag with star of david on it because jews are not part of the intersectional coalition blm has openly endorsed the terrorist activities of chaos in the gaza. Strip that we're supposed to pretend that they were just supporting quote unquote the palestinians. But they weren't okay. They have openly acknowledged that they wished to see israel disappear. Blm i mean. This was in their original manifesto. They talk about liberating palestine which really does mean getting rid of israel from the from the river to the sea when they say they support quote unquote palestinians in the middle of a hamas gaza. Israel rocket war. It's pretty obvious what they're talking about. They're not trying to hide the ball very hard here. Plus if you go to any of these blm rallies they'll actually have like vallance medic signs up there so the intersectional coalition does not welcome jews and so the jews in the democratic party are on their own right here. So curious statement. They put out about ilhan omar equating israel and hamas which by the way again is only part of what she said she also acquitted the united states in the taliban which is again typical ilhan omar. She's consistently suggesting. The united states is a massive human rights violator to terrorist groups. Because this is what she does and then of course she laughs about nine eleven on occasion. She's really a wondering. Enjoy amazing that we have such great congress people in the united states. She tweeted out equating. United states in israel to kamaz in the taliban is as offensive as it is misguided. This this is what the jewish democrats put out ignoring the differences between democracies governed by the rule of law and contemptible organizations that engage in terrorism at best discredits ones intended argument and a worse for flex deep seated prejudice the united states in israel are imperfect and like all democracies at times deserving of critique but false equivalence he's covered terrorist groups we urge congresswoman omar to clarify her words placing the us in israel same category as komo's and the taliban clarify right. So they didn't they didn't condemn her then. Just say this gross. They could've ended this before the last sentence right. They didn't instead. They said. We'll give your way out just clarify and we will pretend you didn't mean what you very obviously meant since you said it over and over and over all you have to do is clarified. Just a little bit. So here's how. Ilhan omar regionally clarified. She originally clarified by accusing the democrats in her own party of islamaphobia because this is what she is right she is a person is viciously anti-semitic. And if you criticize her then she claims that you are anti muslim in some way. No i'm just against people who are anti semitic actually turns out there. Many muslims were not ellen. Omar's not one of them there. Many muslims who are very pro. America ilhan omar in her rhetoric. Certainly is not it will criticize is ellen omar without it being quote unquote islamaphobia. But this is the you want to know. Why in the wake of all of these acts of jew hatred that we saw on the streets of new york and miami and los angeles and chicago in the last few weeks in the wake of that all the democrats were tweeting out about islamophobia because what ilhan omar and rashida to leave and company and the intersectional coalition of succeeded in doing. Is they've succeeded in suggesting that. If you call out anti-semitism this is an active islamaphobia. Which by the way slanderous towards muslims because it turns out the muslims don't actually have to be anti semitic if the claim is that you calling out. Anti-semitism is inherently islamophobic. What you're actually saying that islam is antisemitic. Which again there are. Many many many millions of muslims were not anti semitic and then he cares zelano. She tweeted out this clarification original clarification. She tweeted out. It's shameful for colleagues who call me when they need my support to now put out a statement asking for clarification and not just call the islamophobe troops in the statement our offensive worthy islamic groups jersey where we can name them notice. Notice the game. She's playing right here. So the anti semitic tropes used in the past that the jews hypnotized the world and the jewish money controls american congress it. Those are actual antiques. Metro there's not a single islamophobic trope in that entire statement but she's accusing her college of islam. A phobia the constant harassment. And silencing from the signs of this letter is unbearable unbearable. Oh oh the sears. Lebron james flopping politically like oh my oh oh i can't believe it the constant harassment so difficult to be. It's so difficult to be elected to. Congress being an immigrant to the united states being on the cover of rolling stone and being featured on the foreign affairs committee despite being openly anti jewish. Well i mean what what a rough world she has by the way this lie that her colleagues never go to her quietly. It is just that it is a lie k. The fact is members of the jewish minneapolis community. Her quietly they went behind closed doors and then she betrayed them by talking about terrible. They were basically publicly where she had to leave his own. Same thing so as aoc amazing to watch democrats that gilmar who's not been shy about ripping into other democrats suggests that it's the responsibility of other democrats to come to her and clarify with her quietly about all this just such a why they don't do any okay. So what has been the response from the arabs in the democratic party because this looked like it was coming to ahead it looked as though finally the nba jewish democrats verses ilhan omar and the rest of the squad. Because you have people like where she ta- leib tweeting in defense of ilhan omar rashid until he tweeted this out. This is such unbelievable. Gas lighting quote. Freedom of speech doesn't exist for muslim women in congress she said on twitter to millions of followers as printed never major newspaper. Freedom of speech doesn't exist for muslim women and congress really really run. Our freedom of speech doesn't exist muslim woman pretty much everywhere in the islamic world. That's where freedom of speech doesn't exist for muslim women. Women like doesn't exit. The statement is so self-contradictory. It's doesn't exist for muslim women. In congress i think we've established that muslim have freedom of speech in the united states there in congress the legislature. What in the actual but you're silencing. She did tell how dare you silence for. She doesn't sound so silent. But you know maybe that's just makes actually reading awards. Freedom of speech doesn't exist for muslim women in congress. The benefit of the doesn't exist for muslim women in congress. There's no benefit of the doubt. She literally equated united states in the taliban israel income us and she does this over and over and over you. Don't get the benefit of the doubt the ninth time. You had the benefit of the doubt like the first time. Maybe the.

"Vpn dot com slash bend to learn more alrighty so it was a week in which there were many days ending in y and because it was week in which there are many days ending in y one of those days undoubtedly would feature ilhan omar saying something anti semitic and or anti-american. Because that's what ohio does for a living. The representative from minnesota is very often anti-american. Her rhetoric she is frequently antisemitic rhetoric and she received receives essentially zero blowback from the democratic leadership. Things got awkward this week because a few of the jewish democrats in the house decided that they wanted to put outs mild criticism of ilhan omar. After she tweeted out the following. Here's what she tweeted quote. We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the us. Come on israel afghanistan and the taliban. I asked secretary. Tony blinken where people are supposed to go for justice so this is her in a tweet equating. The united states come us. You know like a terrorist group that has rockets behind children and that hides tunnels underneath hospitals and other schools and israel and the taliban northeast evil groups on the planet a group of people who literally tried to murder young schoolgirls if they go to school and so that is doing yeoman's work on behalf of terrorist rhetoric everywhere and this is what she does. I mean. she's been doing this her entire career. She's been doing this. Since entered politics in a woman who once wrote a letter to a judge recommending less harsh jail time for a person trying to join isis because obviously american society was so terrible and horrible that it drove people toward these sorts of activities in ilan illinois. Mars disaster area. She's been zest for a very long time and yet every time. She says one of these things and she said over and over right. The jews are hypnotize in the world. That it's all about the benjamins that israel and kamaz are exactly the same or even worse that israel is actually perpetuating terrorism. You know what when. Ilhan omar does this sort of stuff. The usual democratic response is simply whistle and walkaway. Now there's been a growing anti semitism problem inside the democratic party for quite a while now at this perfectly obvious from the fact half the cbc. Half the congressional caucus has met with louis farrakhan may is perfectly obvious from the fact that aoc met with radical. Anti semite jeremy corbyn and tweeted it out and then when she was caught she said. Oh yeah. i'll have a listening session with. Members of the jewish community never happened right she to lead openly associated with people who are complete abolitionists about the state of israel would like to see israel wiped from the map in fact on a map in her office when she originally took office should post posted on the map that that where israel was the posted said palestine pointed directly at israel which they genocidal point of view with regard to the state of israel when she did to lead and like did us. Very much omar. Same sort of deal an every time. This sort of stuff comes up the democratic party edges right up to criticizing then they realize oh. Wait a second these women. They're muslim and they seem brown. And that means that if we criticize them then we have violated our own intersectional protocols as blew up into sort of ugly view for the democrats yesterday because they bunch of house democrats all-jewish put out a statement quasi condemning ilhan omar. Just kind of quasi edging up to it always up to it. Now is something on the right side of the aisle. When marjorie taylor green was talking about jewish space lasers Republican came out and said this is crazy and unacceptable. When the steve king said stuff that was racist if the entire republican party stripped him of his committees and then primary him inside the democrat party you can hobnob with louis farrakhan you can hang out with tara supports like rasmia you can hang out with. Linda are sewer into campaigning with her. You how jeremy corbyn you can say okay medic crap. And the best they're going to do is maybe. They will mildly criticized. Now one of the things. That's really disturbing about this. Particular criticism is that it came only from the jewish members of congress who are democrats right and it was only twelve of them. They're twenty five jewish democrats in congress. Only twelve of them send this joint statement and it is really really weak tea but the fact that only jews were willing to sign the statement demonstrates that anti-semitism is treated like any other form of vicious hatred inside the halls of democratic power. It's somebody in. The democratic party had said something racist about ilhan omar about a race. Do you magin. There would only be black members of congress would say something or the every member of the democratic caucus that said something but ill are every couple of weeks just to set that just at that calendar days since antismog accident back to zero every couple of every couple of weeks can only drew signed the statement. There wasn't a single major democrats or minor democrat as far as i'm aware who is not jewish. We've expressed sympathy for the statement. Which is kind of incredible. Basically they're saying if you're jewish democrat. You're on your own because anti-semitism is not part of the intersectional coalition. Jews are not part of the intersectional coalition and this has been true in progressive circles for quite a while. You'll remember that. Just a few years back there was something called. The.

Yesterday west virginia democratic senator joe manchin came out with an op ed in the charleston gazette mail and there were two central conclusions one. He would not be supporting the for the people act which meant to expand voting rights and access and to he would not vote to remove the filibuster on the voting rights. Bill mansion said quote. I believe that partisan voting legislation will destroy already weakening binds of our democracy. And for that reason i will vote against the for the people act so mansion is sticking to his guns it comes to bipartisanship which is something. He has long touted but his party would argue that. It's not being met with good faith by the leadership on the other side and many democrats are frustrated with mansion and are no longer holding their tongues because as far as they see it the idea that republicans and democrats will see eye to eye on voting rights seems unimaginable given the slew of voting restriction bills pushed by the gop in recent weeks. Here's representative jamaal. Bowman of new york with a pretty sharp critique of the senator on cnn. Today joe mansion has become the new mitch.

Stop our work for the people but this division within a democratic party essentially held hostage by mansion extends beyond voting rights mansions commitment to bipartisan legislation. Means that if democrats and the biden administration don't get the deal they want from republicans on something like infrastructure and are forced to go through reconciliation mansion gum up the entire process. Last friday president biden rejected a new counter offer made by republicans on infrastructure despite a fifty billion dollar increase in spending telling the gop's key negotiator that the new offer did not meet his policy goals. So even though president biden and republican negotiators senator. Capito are set to meet again today. The larger question looms at what point will democrats walk away from failing negotiations and choose to go this path alone and more critically will they be able to convince.

"Democratic party you see among the left progressives an agenda at the city level which most of the issues that they want to tackle and solve or very difficult for cities to do alone without the support of the national government. I mean this is changing with a biden administration for the moment at least the american rescue plan which is extraordinary. Infusion of funds into cities is really really important to this conversation and what the cities can do but cities have legal mandates from most of their budget. What kind of tensions are these political debates creating within the democratic party or politics more. Broadly so i think you know when you think about the tensions in the democratic party and you think about new york city most of the country thinks about Alexandria ocasio cortez. Who was that you know. Tremendous upset victory in her congressional campaign against a an incumbent to no one. And i mean no one expected to lose they should have but they didn't And of course okasha. Cortez comes from the so-called progressive left wing of the democratic party in her victory in that congressional race was something that was pretty much heard all across the country in the democratic party. And what we see now in new york and in the mayor will campaign in an all of our city council races is a really interesting dynamic. Guy like to call it. The left leaning progresses versus the old school liberals with smattering of moderate democrats in the mix over there. And i think that within cities at least This is really the nature of the political divisions now. It's really kind of left. Progressives who are really want to restructure politics along the lines of the bernie sanders Agenda and old school liberals who kind of understand city politics ended its variations in what can be done at the city level which is way different than what we can do. In national politics democrats dominate insidious republicans dominate in rural and urban areas and in many ways that shapes. The party's politics but democrats are somewhat of a disadvantage. Structurally because of their dominance in cities is the democratic party. Able to be a party of cities or does it need to be a party that caters more to suburban and swing voters in a way that republicans might not necessarily need to order to win majorities and so on so. This is such an important question. I think and just sort of the historical perspective on this. No reagan was the first president to win without the support of not one single major city in this country and Ironically though before that jimmy carter was the president who started to decrease federal funding to cities. And so we've had kind of situation in which national policy has been made without the input of the series input from from cities in terms of need. I mean the fact that we're so behind an infrastructure is another really good example of ignoring cities. Now what's changed a couple of things that changed. And i think that's part of what the democratic party is struggling with..

"That builds on itself and that's in the democrats has become increasingly diverse coalition of urban interests. I want to get a little deeper into the democratic dynamics. But i obviously the mere image of this trend is how republican rural areas. Are you kind described a dynamic where there are cut proactive reasons. That cities became so democratic. Are there likewise proactive reasons. Why rural and urban areas became so republican or. Is that more of a reaction to what was happening in cities. That's a good question. I think it's a it's a combination of those. I think some of it is reactive but some of it is also as proactive. I think if we go back to the eighties we look at the moment you know in in the seventies it wasn't clear if you were opposed to abortion which party you should vote for but as starting in the nineteen eighties it becomes very clear and so i think there are rural and exurban individuals. Who for whom social issues are very salient. Who are migrating into the republican. Party's slowly over that period. And then i think most recently we look at the positions in the era of trump that the republican party has taken on trade and relationship with china. This is something that resonates with people in the in the areas where competition with china has has increased the most. This is another area where You know white working class. Voters are switching their allegiance at least for the moment in rural an urban areas where manufacturing is still still trying to hold on the trend that you described starts during the new deal era politics. Is it a straight line. Trend or have cities fluctuated over that period. Initially it was very heterogeneous. Initially the democrats were if anything in the nineteen twenties were stronger in rural areas And then in the late. Nineteen twenty s. It was the case that the democrats got a foothold in city politics in new york and in boston. That was really where they started to become a working class type party. And then that spreads slowly to other places so initially there was a there was a republican machine in places like pittsburgh and philadelphia. So eventually when al smith gets the nomination in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. The democrats start to become a more urban party in more cities but that took place slowly and it took place. I in the northeast. But it didn't really happen in like the mountain west and places like that until much later and it didn't happen in the deep south until this recent period of massive increase in urban rural polarization since the nineteen eighties so it was not linear. It was something that that really happened in. The timing of it was different in different places. But what's interesting about the reagan era is. That's when everything started converge. You had all these idiosyncratic rural places. That still voted for democrats Fairly recently am one of the things that's happened in the last few elections that all these places are slowly falling away. there was a time when southeast missouri. There was if you made a map of the old lead mining areas just like make make a map of lead mines in southeast missouri and contemporary election results. He would see this blue a belt associated with rural mining constituencies. That voted for democrats and that's slowly disappeared. Now it's gone. There were parts of rural iowa and western wisconsin. That were quite rural but still still voted for democrats. And that's one of the things we've seen changing as a state by state these old patterns fall away and they all kind of snap onto the same rural cleavage..

"Hello and welcome to the fivethirtyeight politics. Podcast i'm jalen last week. We started to take a closer look at the new york city. Mayoral primary. and we're going to continue that coverage today there's an assumption embedded in that primary that whoever wins is going to become the next mayor of new york city and that's because new york is heavily democratic. Three quarters of the city voted for president biden in the twenty twenty election. In new york isn't alone. of course. The democratic party dominates in cities large and small across the country while the republican party dominates in rural and exurban areas. That dynamic is one of the most ironclad trends in american politics population density can seem to trump just about everything today. We're gonna put the new york city. Primary in context by looking more broadly at the relationship between urban centers and the democratic party city's had huge concentrations of democratic voters. Who what does that mean for the party nationally..

"A lot of the power that they had maybe maybe twenty eight twenty sixteen but it did take years to sort of write that ship if you're a democrat and so there there is a lot at stake right away for the. Yeah definitely and the cd. Three race is a perfect example of of What we were talking about earlier You know you You you suzy. Lee is is a good democrat for that district because she's a moderate and There's a lot of people who are progressives who don't like moderates and think will wire their you know what's the point Of having a moderate democrat you might as well have a republican in there But But but honestly if you ran a if bernie sanders moved to southern nevada got gave up his mittens gave up. His jacket moved to southern nevada. in lived here and decided to run for congress in the in the third congressional district he'd have an uphill climb. It would be tough for bernie sanders to win notwithstanding the fact that he would have total progressive. Support the district currently drawn. And we'll see how it's drawn at the end of the summer when they re district the district is currently drawn would be a very tough sledding for bernie sanders And and i it's not as tough for sicily because of their ideological differences and so that's a perfect example. Now you have april becker Who is a good candidate. She was a very good candidate in that state. Senate race And i think she'll be a very good candidate for For this district assuming she wins the primary. You're gonna have to have somebody who can't be painted as a crazy out of touch socialist. Who wants to take away. Everybody's healthcare and give government healthcare You you if you have that kind of person who would be much easier for a republican challenger to to win that seat and certainly. It's happened many times before in the history of the third congressional district so that district has kind of a good example of the the consequences of of these kind of things. And what potentially could go wrong You need a etiological diversity in the party because of the ideological diversity of the districts and if you do a poor job of matching candidate to district you lose and the other side wins and And you know that may Be for for democrats again a disaster like it wasn't twenty sixteen with donald trump winning the presidency And so you know. These things have to be taken into consideration and the political realities of those things have to be taken into consideration. So i think that's that's that's gonna come into play For some of the central committee voters not all but some of the central committee. Voters will look at things outweigh and i think. See the the pragmatic reality of of what's going on there so that'll that'll be a factor share sharon and certainly as we always say we'll be watching it the next week and be the the following saturday coming from the saturday in which they actually you make this vote and you get a good sense of where the democratic party in nevada. The sort of the empowered party is what i call them in the story because they really have a a pretty tight grip on things most of the state most the federal seats the the majority in both legislative houses and things like that..

"You know either way march seventh rolls around and all of us are going to still be democrats. Whoever's in charge we all have to get behind them. we can't. we can't leave the party. The you know the midterms are two important. Republicans always bounce back in the midterms and we can't we can't lose. The governor's office. We can't lose. The senate seat will lose the whole senate we being democrats will lose the whole senate. If we lose the senate see yada yada yada really quite a lot at state. And so you know their their disagreements. There's ideological disagreements but as also not unusual. This is really the time of the year for that when you're when you're choosing a new chair the parties reconfiguring after an election. This is really the time for that. It's not unusual. And i should note to that we just when i first got here a couple of years ago. There was a sort of a similar fight where any black tried to push. Michael mcdonald out of out of the chairmanship of the republican party. And you know wasn't going to be a very good chance of that. Because he he enjoyed quite a lot of support but it was the same sort of thing where she said. No you're not. You're not far enough to the right. You're not you're not going that way so it's not unusual. I would say for this type of thing to happen in this time and we'll just have to see what exactly what democrats pick and where they go from here. Yeah yeah absolutely and and you know just a touch back on one of the things. You said You know there there is. There is to philosophies is there's one philosophy that says look any democrat is going to be better than a republican Because you know although we don't come together every sunday and recite a democratic creed the way catholics recite the ni- sink read There there's still some basic things at most democrats have in common whether they be moderate or liberal So you know any democrats going to be better than it than any republican and then. There are the people who say no. If we don't get the right democrats were gonna burn it down. And and that was. I think most exemplified in two thousand sixteen when you had the bernie sanders supporters. Who were so disappointed that bernie sanders loss to hillary clinton despite you know is very long and grueling campaign Who basically said now you know what hillary clinton's establishment She's no better than a republican. And we don't we don't care what happens if we can't have our if we can have bernie. Then you know what Were staying out of it and that actually happened in people ended up with donald trump. And i i can't imagine any bernie sanders supporters. Somebody who believed the things of bernie sanders said on the campaign trail was satisfied that donald trump was elected president. I think No matter how much delight they took and seeing hillary eventually lose I think the the subsequent four years i think would have convinced almost all of those folks that that You know hillary clinton would have been better than donald trump if you are a democrat if you are you know of that is logical persuasion and so it just really it just really You know that the tension between you know any democrat is better than a republican versus. Only the right democrats will do i think is gonna play out here in a really big way and you're going to see what happens in the case of michael mcdonald..

"Okay it. yeah it's not a foregone conclusion. I wanted to add in your In your proto cortez masto simulation. The other thing that would happen is the by the end of the day that she put that bill. Forward in it went down. There will be two million dollars in ads spending earmarked against her. He's just is just the bill. You know every republican super pac in the country would just be like falling over themselves. Oh yeah that'd be like court goes master wants a take your healthcare away and and you live in a year. Then you're not gonna have health care and you're going to die a poor homeless and alone in the dirt. That seems that seems the politics of it. I one thing of in doing this. In targeted to folks. This week i definitely am learned that i really need to sort of do do better to not refer to nevada progressives as sort of a monolith because there is a huge spectrum. And we're seeing it now because you've got you know who's certainly he's got the support he announced endorsements and many of the former bernie staff members like like tag and bianca. Recco south who've been around. Who worked like actually in these offices and help get people elected Whether that makes them you know establishment or more practical or however you want to describe. It depends on who you ask. Those folks went for you know. I think that there are a lot of people who say. Yeah i want medicare for all. I want you know an end to cash bail. You know. I want all these sorts of things. But i also understand that. Having a moderate democrat like suzy lee or quotas mass show or something like that is better than having a republican whereas you do have like you say some who are really on that activist side of things you say. Just because you have a d- next year name that doesn't mean that we're going to support you have to earn our support and one of the ways is you have to you know. Come come to us a little bit with with something like that. And if you don't then we don't care about and we're going to find somebody else so i mean i definitely think that that is an interesting dynamic. You're seeing that. There are just all kinds of different clubs in caucuses and things involved but i definitely wanted to get into some of the numbers that we had in my story. Because i think it'll help explain you know exactly what's what's going on here. And what the odds for either candidate our ed you know. This is so judas Yesterday i was now that Typically these central committees at the state party level and at the county party level have a lot of akc because people move people..

"And then once we get there will work out the details of who've who is going to vote for us and we'll put the pressure on at that point that kind of reasoning is just not accept by these young progressives they just they just don't believe that they they think we've got to get the right people in there from the start. Why would you support a conservative democrat. Who caucuses sometimes with the republicans votes with the republicans and and isn't on board with things like for example medicare for all the other thing i think is is interesting because you know they want more access and there's a certain there's a certain of virtue to you know. Having having elected officials meet with these party activists and hear them out and in some cases i would say that if they just feel heard like if if they come to a meeting and catherine cortez maskco is there for example and they tell her senator near. You really should support this. You really should support that you know and just are lot event and and have her you know their understanding giving them feedback talking with him about the idea. Even if she doesn't go for it. I think that would placate some of the people. But i think there's another segment of this activists base that is not going to be placated by just being heard and not just having a meeting. They want her to do things. That quite frankly She's just not gonna do because she's opposed to the illogically or she knows what's going to happen. And and i wish there was some way like you know how they test nuclear weapons at the nevada national security site now. They do computer simulations as opposed to actual critical mass tests I wish there were some way to do a computer simulation. And so you could say all right all right. I'll tell you what let's do this. Let's just say i introduced. This medicare for all bill in the senate. Let's see how that plays out and you do a video game version of that reality right and you see okay you've got bernie. Sanders is on board and alexandria ocasio. Cortez is on board and blah blah blah. Okay here we go. The i voted comes up. Poor in the senate and no it does not pass. It does not even Get to fifty percent of the democrats have been there much less the threshold for cloture to get to an actual vote so seat. That doesn't work..

"And re really most of them except for dina titus aren't going to support something like medicare for all but i i want them and they should have to hear me and and the other progressives out on that we want to have our say to them and try and convince them if if afterwards they decide they're not going to support it then so be it but but that's that is you know she is sort of moving up to that that activists kind of of line and whereas you have tic who also probably would love to have medicare for all in this in this state and across the country. But he's not you know making any sort of private or public ultimatums in that way. And i think. I think that's why a lot of the younger folks the you know the folks who you know they want change and they want it now. They want a share of the power and they want it now That's why i think you see them gravitating towards towards students whitmer a little bit more but you know we should definitely talk about you know. Sort of what could happen if either of them win and one of the things that i had heard from from a lot of folks. Is that having a a state chair. Who is that way who is like that could could seriously put in jeopardy the amount of support you get from the national party and the amount of of money coming in from various packs and different things like that and and the the high dollar donors You know like an mgm that type of thing who who typically do quite a lot to to democrats all that could be in jeopardy and we could see the state party Be very quickly reduced if if we were to win and these folks felt that. They couldn't work with her. Yeah absolutely well first. Let's just leave no doubt on the table. If if tim could push a button and get medicare for all in a installed in america's morrow he would push that button he would jump up and down on that button. There's no question about that In my mind at all. I know he's i know he's in favor of that and it's as as his His being the being the patron of brennan sanders here in nevada bernie sanders. Obviously that's one of his major issues and And and you know a couple of things you said you know. The the the idea of of pre-primary endorsements has come up on both sides and it's a very controversial thing because you know Like judith whitmer said to you you know the the at the idea that the party would not endorse. Its incumbents is is a you know very controversial kind of problematic as opposed to you know a challenger But in other you know another parties Chuck mood who's a republican activists former party official in the nevada republican party a long long time ago He he's all for it. He's all for it because he says look. If you've got a republican that comes along. That's a better republican That says the right things and believes the right things and then you have a guy in office who they would consider a rhino or as or a squish somebody who has voted for taxes for example or or You know has supported democrats in some other way. Yeah they're totally on board with endorsing The the challenger over the incumbent And it's it's a way to sort of purge. The the squish is from from the party on the republican side so so that that is a very controversial thing and the democrats have not really eaten their own in that sense because the democrats are much more unified behind the idea of. Let's just grab the seats. Let's hold as many seats as we can..

"I think i'll absolutely and you know one of the things that i You know that we put in the story. That was something i learned this week. That really kind of hammered at home. We talked about in the past about how you know. There's there's a push from from these. Progressives is sort of younger activists left to use this chairmanship as a way to push elected officials in the party to the left to to you drum up support for medicare for all for example and things like that Really you know as we have said the party chairs main main jobs are to raise money and support the re election of existing democrats and try and help with the facilitating flipping seats and stuff but mostly it was the raising money. Everybody i talked to this week was talking about. You're talking about millions and millions of dollars and it's it's raising but it's also like facilitating these. There's all these net. The national party is gonna oftentimes move through you as the state party there. Are you know the campaign arms. Congressional campaign on senate campaign on both will be active. This year This cycle rather because cortez maskco is up for re election And moving the money through that Is is a big point in there and it was really interesting because i did ask Judases whitmer something that that a lot of the the folks who work in campaign offices and among here. I asked her basically about this tweet. That many people had sat me and had been circulating and it was from twenty one thousand nine hundred and basically judas whitmer was replying to amy villela. And amy villela was basically saying you know when it was a article with congress even horford. It was congressman even horse. For saying you know. I do not I do not support. Medicare for all i you know. I am in favor of strengthening obamacare. That type of thing and amiable ella was suggesting you know maybe he needs a primary and judith. Whitmer sort of unloaded on him. His staff is not receptive to to us. They don't listen to us and yada yada yada and that's got a lot of people worried because you know in the eyes of the establishment. You cannot have a party chair. Who would support a primary of of exist you know. A democrat is up for re election And she and she didn't she kind of Moved away from that. She said you know. I'm i you know i'm telling everybody i'll support everybody's reelection and then. She told me that she told court has masto but all of you need to be a lot more active in terms of meeting with us listening to what we've got to say You know hearing us out a little bit more giving us a little bit more access on a little bit more of your time in that way and and she basically told me look you know i understand some of our elected officials and re really most of them except for dina titus aren't going to support something like medicare for all but i i want them and they should have to hear me and and.
