"Pay pal credit card, bitcoin BTC you choose. How you amp? We appreciate it. However, you do. All right. So a little bit more here from some optimism from Forbes magazine about cannabis in New Hampshire, the democratic speaker of the state house. So the Democrats swept in in this recent election and swept some of the Republicans out. And now they have control over believe both the state Senate to the Democrats. I know they got the state house. They may also have the state Senate. I forget whether that's whether that's the case here Democrats in New Hampshire. Yes. Okay. And so they got a Republican governor and the Republican governor who signed decriminalize cannabis decrease. This is still the strange thing. Like like, if if you were coming at it from the perspective of. He was anti-tax anti-regulation. And that's why he didn't want to legalize then. Okay. That would make sense, right? But he hasn't said that he's just said no matter what the terms are the actual quote from the governor is he would absolutely veto any marijuana legalization Bill, quote, regardless of what the language looks like. So even if it was we're just going to end prohibition, the true volunteers libertarian Bill, which it won't be. But if it was that of we're just ending prohibition. Now, you can grow you can sell you can bake you can give away you can do whatever you want with cannabis. It's not is not taxed it's not. Regulated is not controlled in any way. He would still veto that. So it's not about any kind of freedom for this guy. Just was strange bird vote for decriminalize to go against the police. The police didn't want him to vote for but he voted for that. Now, he's sticking with the cops and saying well that's far enough. We can't have legalisation. I if you look at it from as a political move as opposed to as. A some kind of philosophical move. That's what's difficult for you is is your like, what's his reason? His reason is like the only reason the theory is for a politician to be reelected to get donations. But the New Hampshire voters overwhelmingly support legalization of cannabis. He can get away with it. Because he can now say, 'i decriminalized he went halfway he did. And now if he gets overridden on this he can still say to his police supporters. Well, guys, I did what I could Andy can still say that the libertarians. Hey, look at this this this that I've done isn't doesn't that make you happy. And so he's got things to get the libertarians. We're kind of the, you know, the the movers. The liberty lovers in New Hampshire. We're kinda split on whether or not to vote for Gillette Jarvis. Or forced governors, deuce new is Johnson was calling him here, which I think is funny, and they just had sort of pick between them and the governor was able could make a case to a libertarian. Hey, look, I did this thing this thing in this thing. I signed these this stuff, and that's good enough. Right. You got to pick somebody. If you're gonna vote you're gonna vote for somebody. You're not gonna vote for the democrat. So what are you gonna do? So the optimism about ending cannabis prohibition is a new position for shirtless. Now, this is the new speaker of the house under the Democrats who insane himself this same guy who's saying it's going to happen. He himself opposed. Adding a pro legalization plank in the democratic party's platform this summer, he's quote, if the vote was today, I'd probably be voting. No, simply because there's a legislative commission. That's meeting to look at the impact of legalization on the state of New Hampshire. He said at the time as a courtesy to those serving on the commission. I would wait until they finish their work in issue their report. Well, they did the study Commission's report which was released in November found that legalizing marijuana would generate up to fifty eight million dollars in annual tax revenue. The Democrats know exactly how they want to spend that to earlier this year the New Hampshire house approved legislation to legalize possession of small amounts of marijuana. Now. That's not the right way to say that it actually was in two thousand seventeen where they did that and. Oh, I'm sorry. So yeah, the house did approve legalization. I should clarify. Yes. So they may be correct. You're the house approved it, but it ended up dying in the Senate senators a terror terrorist organization as well as limited home cultivation. But later moved the Bill back to a committee where members recommended conducting the study instead of advancing the legislation to the Senate shirtless. The newly seated speaker who's also retired US marshal voted against that marijuana legalization Bill in an earlier one that passed the house in two thousand fourteen Matt Simon who's a New England political director for the marijuana policy project said in an interview, quote, Representative shortlists evolution on cannabis reflects an encouraging trend among elected Democrats in New Hampshire governor sununu and many Republicans have inexplicably doubled down on their support for prohibition shirtless and most Democrats can see that regulating cannabis is both good politics and smart policy to like Matt Simon. He is actually a free. Stater who who moved here as part of the New Hampshire freedom migration. He's done. A lot of good work on the marijuana. The front. I did some design for him sununu who was reelected in November's midterm signed a Bill decriminalizing cannabis possession last year's we told you earlier, but although he has opposed going further by completely legalizing marijuana. His opposition may not matter. If short-lived is correct that enough lawmakers support the move and would vote to override the governor. We know it's going to happen in the house. The last time it got like. It was like ninety percent of the house voted for legalization. And it was the Senate where it was going to run up against some trouble. Now, some of the worst senators are gone, but they're replaced by new ones, and we don't know where they stand. So this guy's optimistic. That's a good sign. He's probably reached out to some of them would be my guess, and maybe has has talked to them this week Representative rainy Cushing who's the democrat and has been a leader on.

"Yes this is a deep plus two district so this is a district they should've gone to to the democrats would go obama won the district hillary won the district this is definitely a democratic district but the d triple c has been so lame so lame for so long that they just keep losing the so the the some pretty good decent democrats have run in this district before and the d triple c is back stabbed them and done everything it's like they they would rather have a republican than have progressive democrat they just don't want progressive democrats in and one of the reasons for that is because they want to make sure that the next speaker the next leader of the democratic party and the speaker of the house is a conservative democrat they do their pets trrt of that it could be a progressive and ten right now that they've have joe crowley lined up to be the next the next democratic speaker he's literally the most corrupt man in the whole old democrats the most corrupt man in congress he is the gobetween for wall street so here in the senate we'll have wall street will have chuck schumer who they've given more money to than anyone who hasn't run for president in in history a double what they they've given to ryan northern double more than double what they've given to mcconnell chuck schumer's their guy and he's the democrat who is the highest ranking democrat in the senate and now they're about to put in j joe crowley who is the same thing he used a guy when when or new democrats come to congress he says hey come with me i'm going to introduce you to some people and the introduces them to all the banksters and he explains to them how it works have they get their bride.

"They're not interested in finding out is eric prince telling the truth or as george nader we should get to the bottom of this and we'll continue pressing them in the days to come rachel we intend to demonstrate all of the investigative leads that need to be followed the witnesses that should have been called the documents that should have been produced in the hope that it will guy journalists guide our colleagues in the senate and may even be of systems to bob muller congressman let me ask you a big hypothetical i'm thinking about this in part because there's an important and high profile congressional special election in the eighteenth district in pennsylvania tomorrow is that trump plus twenty district democrats think they may have a shot at taking that just that seat tomorrow even though trump won it by twenty points in november twenty sixteen if the democrats if your party does have a big night in november and does take back the house that would make you that would put you in line to be the chairman of the house intelligence committee under a democratic speaker of the house would you expect that in that circumstance you would reopen this investigation that you would do it the way that you think it ought have been done in the first place what expect is that we will look at the work that's been done if the work has been done by the senate intelligence committee or by special counsel bob muller and we've done a full investigation that may not be necessary and if it hasn't then we'll have to evaluate what worked there remains to be done to protect the country you know one issue that concerns me rachel for example is that we were not allowed to investigate whether the leverage the russians have over this president is money laundered where the russians did hear what they have done elsewhere and laundering money through the trump organization the senate is not investigating that either now i hope that bob muller is but should issues like that that expose the the country to leverage or over the president united states not go investigate it then we would need to and i want to say one other thing that really stands out to me about this sad chapter in our committee and that is i think many of us could see that donald trump was.

"Double in the house at least as far as i can see has got to vote for this legislation because these weapons are are doing just terrible things in schoolyards in banks in in workplaces uh uh all across this nation and i think it's creating a level of anxiety and fear uh that that we can well do without when the dave the vote arrived in the house patrick griffin watched nervously from the chamber so i was anxious i really didn't want to be up in the house chamber the question is on the passage of the bill there was a major vote which would have been to strike this provision out of the bill and it prevailed by one vote so many is in favour will say i deposed null when you do charity always have so that meant it was in the building it was going to go to the the senate you know i was just torn mean it but i was up there in everybody's cheering and and uh all i had was not in my stomach about it they were not happy that this past patrick griffin again from bill clinton's white house recalling a night not long after the house vote in a meeting at the offices of democratic senate majority leader george mitchell along with tom foley the democratic speaker of the house speaker foley had this big kinda down dog face on and he says this is going to be problematic and then this big bold of lightning and thunder struck we all kind of shook but took it as a very ominous sign democrats were still on edge about their reelections even taking signs from the storm outside the capitol the senate eventually passed a different version of the bill than the one the house had agree to and during negotiations desperate to pass that.

"Of famously said guncontrol has nothing to do with crime control so that's george w bush i don't think i need to go through a whole long list of donald trump it's fairly in our face all the time right now but who do you think is worse it's an interesting question george bush you're donald trump this is the thom hartmann program and i think he could claim that we survived bush i would say we did and i would say the country was permanently damage but the question then will we survive trump and welcome back uh my question free speech tv in chicago hey mike what's up yeah i hope you don't miami rehashing this topic from my yesterday but i've been on hold for twenty hours twenty hours i don't think that's even tell with at the end of the show you said you'd have enough time all i'm so i took a real quick uh i just wanted to make a correction uh uh called in a yesterday and said that if the democrats uh took over both the house and the senate uh and then they would impeach and convict both pence and trump that and then you stated that ryan would be the next president would that be incorrect because if they took over the house that would be a democratic speaker oh yeah you're right yeah so i mean though you're very right it's fires yeah i totally blew them and thank you for that all right and it as far as who is worse than porsche her trump i think the the the is reflective of the fact that people see trump now and they see how bad he is in a comparison that trump or on compare in the bush bush looks pretty good why why because he could make it because it could speaking in coherent sentences most of the time and and he wasn't as a bizarre as trump well i think that the the the question should be asked maybe ten years from now you know the operation and trump because then both were on what i've been out of office and then i think it'll be easier assuming that we don't have a year and.

"Put this together with democrats you know we've had fifty fifty powersharing is actually twenty years to before i got there okay and in at that time though it did was fifty just because the republican hadn't been sworn in so they had a democratic speaker if it is 5050 we'll have to come to some sort of compromise ahead if we go in fifty fifty one where each have fifty is we walk in opening day we'll have to come in at some sort of compromise uh i don't know if that's i don't know what that's going to look quite yet i would assume you know the committees would be evenly split but uh let's see what happens here lee said listening to your show people are you know people woke up this morning thank and that's 5050 now it may come down to a coin toss us sometime right after christmas but but you had a pretty healthy majority uh the last several years ebbe but over on the other side of the building there you saw the senate they had to deal with what was basically a 5050 diamond that was it instructive to see what they had to go through and the arm wrestling that year republican colleagues in the state senate had to deal with if arm wrestling but if they did this requires a lot of patience if tip bigotry take the time to list everybody's point of view uh yeah when you've got a twotoone majority of makes it a whole lot easier to get things done in eu economic and push through things a little quicker i think we'll continue to fight for the things i think report i think your listeners thanked those important uh but it may take with wartime uh on some of these things but let's let's see i i'm really optimistic that we can hopefully pull the saying off the actually it's interesting most of the analysis now when it's been about six weeks since election day most of the analysis his reached some kind of consensus that the the democrats in the commonwealth virginia were really motivated to in some way send a message to president trump i get that that's a big takeaway here how do you put together a legislative agenda for for for virginia based on opposing the president united states.
