Sen. Chris Murphy: Cut Funding for Police Not Enforcing Gun Laws
"Democrat Chris Murphy. This Connecticut Democrat, once these guys bang this drum all the time, here he was over the weekend after these terrible shootings in Colorado Springs, and if the Walmart, here was Chris Murphy, poster boy. For anti Second Amendment, anti constitutional rights for law abiding American citizens. You don't think they're coming for your guns? Think again. The majority of counties in this country have declared that they are not going to enforce state and federal gun laws. They have decided that they are going to essentially refuse to implement laws that are on the books. That is a growing problem in this country. And I think we're going to have to have a conversation about that in the United States Senate. Do we want to continue to supply funding to law enforcement in counties that refuse to implement state and federal gun laws? Red flag laws are wildly popular, right? You just temporarily take guns away from people. So you want to withhold money for law enforcement? I think we have to have a conversation about whether we can continue to fund law enforcement in states where they are refusing to implement these gun laws. Nuts. These people are back crap crazy.
Caller: The Media Loses Its Mind Over a Bad Joke
"Good. It actually sounds like the beginning of a very bad joke. But the president and African American pop star in some white nationalists I never heard of get together for dinner. And the media loses its mind. It's not a big deal. And we've been something that maybe other people don't do. And maybe he's getting everybody together to have a nice conversation. Well, or maybe he wants to, who knows? I mean, but to me, it isn't even the dinner that matters. What matters is the media obsession with the dinner. Because again, they need him. You're being played. And then we all get all hot and bothered. We all get up shed about it. We should around and instead of looking at things that really do matter. The 2024 presidential race doesn't matter in November of 2022.
Caller: The Trump Dinner Is Feeding a Pre-Existing Dinner
"Thank you for taking my call. Voted for Trump twice and this dinner is just feeding a preexisting narrative. And the lesson I learned when I was young is that you're judged by the company you keep. And it's just not. But why doesn't that rule apply to Democrats? You know, I wonder how many times Obama had dinner with Jeremiah Wright? Exactly. You're exactly right. It's only one way. I mean, you know all the bad people that went in and out of The White House under Obama and then how about with Biden? I mean, he hangs around with some real, some real whack jobs. Absolutely. And that stuff never sticks to them because the Democrats are backed up by the media. Trump never has been, never will be. Exactly. I agree with you. And that's why we
The Media Needs Donald Trump
"We can get in the weeds on this if you want. I don't think anybody can waltz into Mar-a-Lago and sit down and have dinner with Donald Trump. There's got to be Secret Service that vet the people that dine with him, so I don't know if he knows the guy or doesn't know the guy. I know he knows Kanye, 'cause he was, they're Friends, I guess, although it didn't go well, apparently Kanye who seems to be in the middle of a continual like psychotic episode. Kanye evidently shed to Trump that Kanye is going to run in 2024 and Trump ought to be his vice presidential running mate. Well, you can imagine how well that went over. I'll bet that went over real well. How'd you like to be a fly on that wall? Again, back to the Desperate Housewives lady knocking the table over. But seriously, they're just consumed their obsessed. They can not and will not let him go. They need him. The worst thing that could happen to them. I'm telling you, the worst thing that could happen to them is that he goes away. Nobody wants that. Isn't that interesting?
What Is Gaslighting?
"Now, I want to tell you what's going on here and I want to see if you agree with me or not because there's a word. That applies to all of this controversy. It's called gaslighting. In fact, do you know that Miriam Webster dictionary has named gaslighting as the 2022 word of the year? Gaslighting is happens all the time. And gaslighting, it's the backstory. It comes from the title of the 1938 play and a movie based on the play. The plot of which involves a man attempting to make his wife believe that she's going insane. His mysterious activities in the attic caused the house's gas lights to dim, but he insists to his wife that the lights are not dimming, and that she can not trust her own perceptions. In other words, they want you to feel like you're going crazy. So this is a great example of gaslighting. Do you recognize how consumed they are with Donald Trump?
Kristen Soltis Anderson: Nick Fuentes Was an Unexpected Dinner Guest
"But I want to give you the right perspective and the right analysis over this controversial dinner. Here was a clip from CNN. CNN host Dana bash is talking to a Republican pollster named Christian saltis Anderson, listen to this exchange about the big wild dinner at Mar-a-Lago with the white griper nationalist Holocaust denying guy and Kanye who now goes by yay. You know what probably isn't a great way to get voters on your side, dine at your private club with white supremacists and Holocaust deniers. That is exactly what happened last week. President Trump had former president Trump had white nationalist and Holocaust and ironic Fuentes, rapper, Kanye West, who's now known as Ye, the former president claimed that Fuentes was an unexpected guest, and he knows nothing about him.
Media Freaks Out Over Trump Dinner With Nick Fuentes and Ye
"I'm ready to give you the proper analysis over Trump's big dinner at Mar-a-Lago, which was a DEFCON one response from the media. Even conservative media. Breitbart and The Wall Street Journal national review. All running around with their hair on fire because Trump had dinner at Mar-a-Lago last week with Kanye and some white nationalist guy, some Holocaust deniers supposedly. And there was a complete media freak out. I'm on vacation, my phone's buzzing. Alerts. Trump had dinner at Mar-a-Lago. I'm thinking, what do you do? He shoots somebody at dinner? They knock the table over? Desperate Housewives style? What do you do? He had dinner with Kanye. Now, I don't remember that melting down to this extent when Kanye went to the Oval Office a few years ago. Remember that one? I guess they did. I don't remember.
Emboldened Biden, Dems push ban on so-called assault weapons
"President Biden raged the idea of trying to pass an assault weapons ban after two mass shootings in a week, but he'll likely face an uphill battle in Congress. It was Thanksgiving Day after 6 people were gunned down in a Walmart and 5 killed at a Colorado Springs gay bar. I'm gonna try to get rid of a subway. On NBC's meet the press, Colorado governor Jared polis, says something needs to be done. It's about mental health. Of course, it's about gun policy. Of course, it's about anti LGBTQ rhetoric. But the Democrat says it can be done without invoking a ban. Where you need an additional license or background check for some of the most high powered weapons. Also on the show, Kentucky Republican congressman James comer. Cities that have the most strict gun laws like Washington, D.C., Chicago, these are the cities with the highest rate of crimes comer says he'd support legislation aimed at improving mental health access and boosting law enforcement.

Jeffries makes historic bid to lead House Dems after Pelosi

The World Is on Edge As Former President Trump Prepares to Run Again
"Street Journal actually put this quite well in a piece that they wrote today and editorial piece. They said, quote, before COVID, he being Donald Trump was headed for reelection, but the damage from his shutdown of the economy combined with his erratic behavior in that crisis gave Joe Biden the opening to campaign for normalcy. Mister Trump lost a winnable election. I think that's a fair assessment. It was a mistake to shut things down and to keep things shut down for so long. And the inflation that we now have, frankly, is a result of all that. Poor decisions that were made at the time, and that resulted in multiple stimulus checks I mean, hey, the first, the first one, what are you going to do? We had no choice, but then there was the second and then there was Joe Biden's third, and then there was the Federal Reserve all along printing printing printing, printing in now, we have record inflation, and I suspect we're going to have real economic trouble in the near future, as the fed tries to reign this thing in. It can't be done, not the way they want. I'm sorry. I mean, hey, they can pull a rabbit out of their hat. I'll take it. But I don't believe we are going to be able to get through the next 12 months without having a pretty serious recession. You saw the news on Amazon today they're laying off people all the tech companies are laying off people, by the way. Interesting how they waited. Until after Tuesday's election to announce all that, I believe many of the announcements came on Wednesday. Um, anyway, we are in a treacherous time. I think it's really important that somebody really capable wins the nomination, another four years of Democrats, possibly with them then gaining control of the house of the Senate. I'll tell you, that's a bad thing for America. I'm
Trish Analyses What's Changed Since 2016
"Go back to 2015 and 2016. So what was unique about Donald Trump in 2015, 2016. He was the anti politician, right? And there's something very, very appealing about the guy who's just going to say anything, especially when you're up against the woman who was so controlled and so contrived. I'm talking about Hillary Clinton and so frankly despised by so many Americans. She was not well liked. She didn't have that sense of humor that he seemed to display, and so he won. Now, one strategist once told me, and I thought this was very interesting. In some ways, 2016 was more about a vote against Hillary than it was for Trump. I think there's an element to that, of course, but simultaneously, I do think that people, they felt like he could do something different and they were desperate for different. We've been going down the same path and we've had the bushes and we've had that clintons and people wanted something new. And here was this businessman who had done some pretty exciting things in the business space and heck was a household name on the apprentice show, a very popular show and they thought, hey, why not roll the dice on something different? But a lot has happened since then, I still stand by what I said all along. It was a mistake to shut the economy down. That was the first red flag, if you would, in what was about to go wrong because at that point, the Trump administration effectively was just giving in if you would, too, those that really wanted to take control of things. And we became a complete failure as an economy. I think we did a lot of extra damage along the way, including to our children who spent many, many months over year right without getting in some cases proper schooling. So there was a lot of damage inflicted by that one decision. Look, I'm neutral on this. You know that. I'd like to see conservatives win, but I'm neutral on who would be the person, but I'm doubtful that we can get back to where we were in that 2015, 2016 kind of scenario where you saw this groundswell and you saw this momentum for so many people even crossing party lines,

Charlamagne Tha God: Dems Don't Have Anyone to Face Trump-DeSantis
"Here with Charlemagne the God, he's a real popular podcaster, I guess, and radio host out of New York. He was on Comedy Central over the weekend. Listen to what Charlemagne the God said about the Democrats having to go up against Ron DeSantis or Donald Trump. Well, we know in 2020 four it's going to be desantis and Trump, but I think we should scare people to get the Democrats going, nobody. Yeah. Yeah. So I disagree with that. I think we have a long bench, right? So we have Elizabeth Warren, who's a possibility. Come on. We have governor Whitmer in Michigan. It was a possibility. We have Jamal Bowman, who's a possibility. We have congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, the rest of the squadron. Will you be old enough button? She'll be old enough. Here's the other thing. The largest growing voting. You think America is ready to vote for somebody that have someone aggressive like that? Absolutely. They can't even get abortions. How are they going to be president? The large weight? The largest growing voting block in the country are millennials and Gen Z okay. That's her base that's her generation. She can absolutely get it done. And again, Jamal Bowman might be on the ballot in 2024. Who knows, right? It's about him. It's about shifting the consciousness of America and painting a vision of what's possible. No one on the Republican side can do that. And no traditional Democrats are doing that like our younger, more progressive base in the house. I mean, there's respectfully, I ain't nobody that can beat the Santa's to Trump. That's charlamagne the God. He says, I say this respectful. There's nobody that can beat desantis and Trump. An interesting how he put them together. You notice that? Wouldn't that be something? How about that ticket? How about a Trump desantis? Oh, I don't know, desantis Trump ticket.
Will New House Republicans Side With Democrats to Get Things Done?
"You said blame them all. Trump Republicans, their media, their voters because they form a cluster of insanity and degradation, a heaving ball, heading towards a cliff, 2022 was us stepping out of the way before a dragged us with them. We're not out of danger yet, but damn, it feels like we've dodged a catastrophe. And boy, howdy. That is really true. I mean, yeah, go ahead. I mean, I think that on some level, if the house does go Republican, they're gonna have to do some of the stupid hearings that they talk about. I think they're still talking about a Hunter Biden hearing, which is just Travis. Sorry. I want to point out on that subject. I do think you're right that they're going to these hearings, but remember, these are going to have to be in committees and committees are going to be evenly divided because the house is so close. So all it takes is one Republican, one sane Republican, which I know that's a long shot, but from a district that flipped these new York people. They're not going to be able to risk these crazy votes to keep their receipts. So I don't even know if the investigations are going to move that much. Well, Chris Hayes tweeted, I feel like the universe wants the house to be 2018, 2017, and you said one Republican could certainly be tempted to go independent and caucus with Dems. I mean, I think the jury is really still out on what happens with the house. And I think that if it's within a couple of a couple of seats, which it seems like it's going to be, no, excuse me. Yeah. Too much joy. And swallow swallow. Where it seems like it's heading, certainly, some of those Republican representatives are going to say, okay, you know what? I'd rather get stuff done. Then have to sit through Marjorie Taylor Greene going off about drag

Not All Gloom and Doom for Conservatives
"Jen, I want to get your take just right off the bat. Obviously, what the heck happened yesterday? And your opinion? You know, after I think I went a little apoplectic. And then I just started laughing like a crazy person. It's all sort of like settled in now. I think. You know, I don't think it's as bad as the mainstream news media is setting it up to be. It's really funny, Carl, because if you listen to everybody on and I do, you know, as our friend Larry elder says, he watches these MSNBC and CNN said we don't, as you guys don't have to. I've been doing that today to see what the other side is saying. And they are gloating and they're talking about the red wave that never was. But a few reminders admittedly, I'm disappointed that the House of Representatives is not the landslide that we all thought. I predicted that Republicans would probably get up to about 225 seats. That's probably not going to happen. Maybe close. But it's a slow trickle of results. That's the disappointment. But when you consider what has happened across the board, the Senate map was never favorable to Republicans in this election cycle. It was favorable to Democrats. And the Republican Party created so much momentum that we actually put the Senate in play, which is why we started hearing the conversations in the first place about the red wave. I mean, think about it. Lee Zelda may not be the governor of New York today, but the fact that he got that close in the state of blue is New York. That's amazing. And then in my home state of California, what's been awesome to watch is in congressional races for the House of Representatives throughout the state. They've had, they've had districts where they've pulled money from the Democrat, and they've had to put it in other races because things were looking so bad.

Then you have Maxwell frost right here in Orlando said, as a national organizer with the ACLU, I pushed Joe Biden to agree to abolish the Hyde amendment and act that has limited abortion access for millions of people. I organized in the movement that restored voting rights to 1.6 million floridians with previous felonies. I've let thousands of young activists and the fight against gun violence as the national organizing director of March of our lives.

I'll pour hunter's shaking. That's an oldie but a goodie there. So in 1993, with Joe Biden as one of the signators to the legislation, Bill Clinton passed sweeping. Now that's on the 80s, I believe, but Bill Clinton passed another sweeping package of three strikes you're out kind of stuff. Again, which absolutely devastated the African American communities. Now there was one president recently that actually passed gel reform that undid a lot of these injustices. That president was president Trump. And yet only 67% of the African American community believes I'm seriously. It's so let me tell you, you mentioned a stat about half of high school girls 49% said their mental health was not good, most of the time or always during the COVID-19 outbreak, roughly double the share of boys who said this 24%. All to save somebody from getting the flu, which didn't actually save any lives. We've saved no lives. Not one. Not one with everything they did. So many commented on our Twitter feed. Absolute moron. I have something posted, the pin to the top or Twitter for you to talk about how the government knew that the lockdowns would cause hundreds of thousands of deaths, but they did not really know if the lockdowns would actually help to mitigate the spread of the virus. Right. And yet they went with the hundreds of thousands of deaths knowingly. And commented on that. The problem with that question is real. You don't believe in it. I'm like, did you not watch the actual video, which they probably did, right? No. No. It's amazing. The mitigation strategies didn't do anything. And we knew that. That's the thing. You know, nobody blames anybody in the beginning, although I did it in the beginning, I thought this is stupid. Ridiculous. You're never going to stop by. Call it 100% right there. But once we play itself out, you've got to be brain dead to think. I mean, you got Andrew Cuomo saying, I can't believe it. 75% of cases where people that stayed in their house. Guess what, moron? It's not working. Right. I mean, you're destroying your economy. You're going to have people dying of alcoholism, drug overdoses, and suicides in the record. And you said yourself, it's not working. You immediately do what desantis did at that point, which is a 360, right? Because I'm telling you right now, I was in Florida..

You're going to start to hear in the media soon. The people are going and it's sad. It's really kids are going hungry. Now keep in mind, we just sent 33 more $1 billion of Ukraine. We have homeless vets on the streets, right? We have one in 5 kids that have food insecurity in this country. And yet, Nancy Pelosi is gloating about how much ice cream she's got her. And going back to the COVID, we talked about the 1% contraction. 1% contraction and every time the U.S. pulls GDP 1% GDP. 7 million people starve globally, right?

I know we're coming up against our we don't have a time allotment here, but usually try to keep it 45 to 45 minutes from now. I want to play an oldie but a goodie because somewhere along the line, these people went so far nuts. This is Joe Biden a long time ago. Now for those of you who have the chance to watch this online, you should do that. Even if you go, even if you move forward to this specific spot because you'll hear Joe Biden decades ago talking about how to treat criminals. There's a huge drug problem back then still is obviously gotten worse. It's gotten way worse underneath him, but he was going to be tough on crime, right? While the video part of this shows his son lighting up as he's giving this real strong hardcore message. If you start lighting up a crack, piece of crack cocaine, no bigger than this quarter that I'm holding in my hand. We passed a law through the leadership of senator thurmond and myself and others.

"By there. It's a hot mess. Which makes me wonder why are some hot mess? Fuel prices are not necessary. Overseas is on fire. So our border is wide open. We have record amount of heroin overdoses. Fentanyl overdoses, right? A record amount of poverty. Every inner city that's run by a Democrat is shit. People eager to turn over Congress for that party. There's a lot of criticism for Democrats around messaging. Why do you think it is? Well, I don't think people are eager for that. I think right now, I think there's a bunch of people that are eager, a bunch of people. But it's about message. But again, go back to the circle, this beltway mentality that they're in, there's such their own inner circle. They have no idea what's going on around them. Their day starts out today. Messaging. That's right. Message gas price is better. Right. Right. If we could just package it up better, like, look it. We saved the students. At a higher food prices, right? You can't message your way. You can try to point the finger, you can try to say it's Putin's prize bikes. It's people don't care. They know it's not true. And you can't message your way out of the stock market. You sort of get a low. Once you win a big election like we did in 2020, people think, well, everything is going to work out well. And now we can. Everything's going to work out well. Not so much. Not so much. Actually, many of us didn't think it was going to end up so good. Yeah. Let's predicted this. Back to that bubble. Does he believe that things are going great right now? Does he think that things have worked out really, really well? Absolutely. Stoked about what's going on right now? Hold that, Glenn, because he's going to answer your question. This is just a little bit. But folks have to understand that we can't pause, saving democracy is not something that you can just take a vacation from. It's something that you constantly have to do particularly. Given the craziness that we see over in Congress right now, you think about the Republican Party right now. This is a party that is built on fear. It's built on fraud. And I would like to say it is also fascism. They are the president's son got $3.5 million wired in from Moscow. An oil company's board overseas collecting $80,000 a month. Until recently. And he's now selling our way. But let me say this. He is the backdrop that he speaking in front of is a Black Lives Matter poster. Yep. Now I will remind you that Black Lives Matter was completely founded on an absolutely lie.

"I think they mean the oil companies. They will blame all of us if we don't do something about other fossil fuels. But they won't take that out on your side on the midterms. If even if you pass this bill and prices don't get better for the perception is that we think of that. I don't think what you say is making very much sense. That's gotta be another clip, that way. I don't think if you say so much. I think it's actually perfectly. It makes all kinds of sense, Nancy. Everybody is blaming you. Anybody with a brain in their head is blaming you. The question is, again, do they do does she really believe that? Or is she just gaslighting? Right. Well, that was in the room. When you see the reporter from MSNBC, right? Talking about, oh my God, Elon could potentially buy this platform. And he may actually be able to suppress or shadow banner influence what people see. Again, are they that in their own little world that they don't like were you not here? I guess I'd love to ask that question about that. And how do you not? Do you believe that the hunter bet live? How about how about we get this new minister of truth for a press conference? Can we do that? Can we have Peter doocy ask her? Do you believe today that the hunter laptop is real or do you still believe that it was Russia disinformation as you stated two years ago? By the way, where are the Republican attack dogs to continue to go after hunter? I mean, if this was a Trump kid, you better believe that the Democrats would be wasting every resource they possibly could. Everything at their disposal, 100% they would be going after him to say enough is enough or her in the case of Trump. We're going to expose this. Man, the Republicans are just going to hang out. That's the problem. I say all the time. The Democrats are given credit, man. You can punch them right in the face. And they're like one of those things at the fairway. They punch him in the face. They fall back. Right back up. Like, okay, try it. Wait a minute. You're taking over Twitter. And you're going to make it fair. And we're going to be able to have free speech. Bam. Right back into the ministry of truth. Company agency. We're going after people. Here's a government bureau to now get past, right? It's like shit. Is that what it's going to be? Is it going to be because DHS? Again, it's Department of Homeland Security.

What would bring that party back to say that who cares about gas prices because we can't lose the right to be able to kill our baby, the minute before it comes out of the womb and places like New York. So yeah, that would be it. That's why I don't know if it's true. Maybe it is. It wasn't going to leak it until maybe they weren't going to rule until after the midterms. I don't know. Apparently, that's when the ruling is going to come out. That's what I'm saying. So it's going to come up before anyway. Yeah, so it's going to come out in June. And then the rumor is that it'll force it back to the states, right? So in the case of New York. New York could still be able to have their abortions. That's right. That's right. The Republicans, Republican states like Florida, would obviously go in the direction of the law itself and say Texas. No more abortions. But it would push back to the states. We'll see though. We'll see where this all goes, right? It would be, I think it's too premature though. That comes out by July today. I'm sorry, the number two issues. That win elections. Every single time, fuel prices and the balance in your 401k plan. And I don't care. That's a number one and two issues when it comes to voting is how what my pocket even liberals, even you liberals. The liberals say, oh, I don't really care. That's not my number one priority. Right. Right, right. Right. We'll see. Midterm elections are going to get whacked. Unless they cheat. The way they're going to cheat is exactly how they're already cheating, which is a 149% of eligible voters are registered in your account. Right. That's how they're going to win. They're going to go to the east side of buffalo and cheat. And they've done it. They've been busted handing out $10 bills to people. They've been busted. With these voter machines, they've been busting time and time again. That's the only way they went. Countries sick of it.

It's how you hide a little bit like how you had a little light of the lie, tell you how little vlog and Rudy Giuliani said, I didn't tell Ukraine who went TikTok can do and sustain COVID cable pain. Listen, when TikTok influencers say COVID can't cause pain. So you take that damn shot, you listen to our crap, whether you like it or not. And if you don't, then now we've got a police department that's going to, it sounds a lot like communist China, to be honest with you, a lot like that. Well, let's keep going. I will say she's got a nice voice and a nice ring to it. It is getting in my head. This isn't the one we really should take note and not support their lies without wallet voice of it. That supports our lives with our wallet voice or vote. Well, that would be okay. I'll tell you what. If you don't want to support somebody with your voice or you do that. But don't tell me what to do. Well, don't tell me we can't debate ideas and have an open conversation about something, you know? Again, they're going along the lines of, well, we don't really have free speech in this. I can't believe the Democrats are taking this line. Here's what the Democrats are lining up basically to do, right? You can't have free speech, that's their platform. If you can't have free speech in this country, that's what they're going to try. We have to have, you know, trans education for 5 year olds, right? This is their platform, right? These people are lunatics. They have gone Elon Musk puts out a stick figure picture, showing how far the left has moved. That's right. With him in the middle. They go nuts. And the Twitter sphere lost their minds again.

I always wear blue. We've got a ton of videos today. And I think we'll call it video podcast day because some of this stuff is just too good to be true. I've been a few weeks for me, so I feel a little bit rusty. It's funny you do something for 20 years and then you take two weeks off and it's like, it is like riding a bike. You hop right back on and you get rolling. But it doesn't mean you ride it as fast as you did two weeks before. So I've got my I've got my T lined up and I'm ready to go. I want to jump right into some of these videos Glenn because let's start out with this, okay? So we've got U.S. inflation rate 8.54% compared to 7.84% last month. So doing a bang up job, Joe. Month after month, you're outperforming previous month's numbers. Numbers that we never saw before. So everything is getting higher and that means gas prices and inflation. Compare that to 2.62% last year. So, but these Democrats are really delusional. And maybe what we'll call the title of today's show is delusional Dems because they just, they just don't get it. They just don't. I think they're honestly, I think they're devoid from reality. Yeah, I think I had this conversation again with my son this morning. Liberalism is a method. It's a mental illness. It's a mental illness. I mean, we can talk about a whole range of different things, but I think these people honestly in a lot of ways are so in their own little echo chamber. They have no idea. You sent me this MSNBC clip. Maybe we should start. Let's play that. It's unbelievable. On all of Twitter or Facebook, sorry. Go ahead. So I'll play it. It's really unbelievable. So let's listen to this more on it. MSNBC. You own all of Twitter or Facebook or what have you. You don't have to explain yourself. You don't even have to be transparent. You could secretly ban one party's candidate or all of its candidates. All of its nominees, or you could just secretly turn down the reach of their stuff and turn up the reach of something else.

But everything is talking about. Everything this moron is talking about is exactly what they've been doing. Is exactly what they did. It's exactly what they did. In fact, they did polls to ask voters if they had known about the Hunter Biden laptop story. Right. Twitter censored a major news outlet the New York Post and anybody who retweeted anything about the Hunter Biden lab. Done. 7 days before the election had their account immediately suspended and taken online. Political candidates that were running for office had their account suspended 30 days before election. There was so much influence by Facebook put in $400 million to influence elections. Mark Zuckerberg, right? Because these people that completely detached from reality, they are.

"To know in politics for Monday, march 14th. Look, we have an ambitious agenda. So let's go get it done. Democrats are facing tough political headwinds in advance of November midterms, and that leaves the party looking to President Biden to come up with a winning strategy. President Biden last week spoke to Senate Democrats at their conference that they were holding to House Democrats at their annual issues conference and the Democratic National Committee, which was convening its winter meeting here in Washington, D.C.. That is to say, President Biden spent a lot of time last week trying to put forth a message that his party can run on in November in the midterms. Now, as we've talked about before here and will no doubt talk about many, many times between now and November, history is clearly only as good of a guide as it can be. There's no predicting that things will unfold this year exactly as they have in previous years, but it is some sort of a guide, which is that parties in control of The White House tend to not do so well in midterm elections, and so Democrats find themselves in a really tough position. Because not only historically with the party expect to suffer losses, the margins in the House and the Senate are about as close as they could possibly be. I mean, you're dealing with very, very evenly divided House and Senate chambers. And if you add on to that, the current environmental factors politically, you have a president who is underwater in the polls, you have as big domestic agenda item formerly known as build back better, the big social spending bill, the climate bill, sort of went up in flames when Joe Manchin of West Virginia back in December said it's a no go for him. You have inflation that continually seems to be record breaking, like we haven't seen in some four decades. You have gas prices literally breaking records nearly every day and hurting folks where it counts. And it's hard to break through that with the reality of record job creation and economic factors that seem to suggest there's a healthy economy and revival of the economy post COVID that's happening. That life in many, many areas of America is returning to a bit of normalcy to a bit of a pre COVID mentality given all the vaccinations that are out there. And those accomplishments are real. I mean, it's why President Biden and a high profile State of the Union address made sure to highlight the American rescue plan that $1.9 trillion package. And yet the president clearly understands as he told the House Democrats on Friday that they can't just point to some big spending bill and expect that to be the winning message in and of itself. All of that is true, but it is tough to break through things like record high inflation. Never mind, a war in Ukraine being conducted by Russia and Putin, which is consuming all of the president's time. So where do the Democrats go from here? Well, they certainly have gotten rid of the build back better moniker that was what most of 2021 was all about for the party, trying to get that infrastructure Bill passed the bipartisan one that they did, and then that larger social spending, the big investment in climate change combating efforts. That build back better proposal, not only is it dead, but so is the name, which White House press secretary Jen Psaki was recently asked about. No one cares about the name in the American public. They care about what's in it and what it's going to do. And so that's what we're most focused on. So now when you see the president go out and do political events, you may see signage that says building a better America. It's just some other version of this, but whatever the name, they have to figure out a plan forward if they're going to try to pass some significant legislation that they can take onto the campaign trail. To that end, today a group of 89 House Democrats sent a letter to President Biden, urging the president to use climate action as the issue to restart negotiations on a democratic spending bill. This comes a few weeks after Joe Manchin, whose vote, as you know, is critical. He's the one that scuttled the original larger version of this, well, he opened the door for new negotiations and suggested in his outline of what would be acceptable to him would certainly be some of the money targeted to combating climate change. Now, the reality is, there is no concrete plan here yet. They're going to have to be pretty intense negotiations all over again from moderates and progressive Democrats to first get on the same page and then try to figure a way through the house and all 50 Democrats in the Senate. That's a long way off, but democratic leaders are concerned that their party is suffering from an enthusiasm gap. And one way to get Democrats excited to come out to the polls in a midterm year is to rally around some core principles that the party is fighting for to get passed through Congress and onto the president's desk for a signature. But all of that being said, that is not stopping President Biden from trying to steer his party on the path he thinks will provide them the best chance. We have a record to be proud of. We're going to continue to stand up to meet the great challenges of our time, voting rights, climate change, gun violence, criminal justice, immigration, is so much more another way that President Biden and his team expect to rally Democrats and get them enthusiastic is by fulfilling his promise to put the first African American woman on the United States Supreme Court. As you may know, katangi brown Jackson, the judge that Biden has nominated to the court will begin her Senate confirmation hearings next week up on Capitol Hill. But after delivering the State of the Union address, after spending three days last week, rallying Democrats from every corner of the party, it's still not quite clear, sort of what the bumper sticker is for Democrats to make the case that their majorities should be renewed by the American people. This November. One thing that Democrats seemed a little hopeful about in the last few days was that President Biden's approval rating in the polls since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, since he delivered the State of the Union address where that was a big focus, has seen the slightest uptick. Now, whether the president is at 40% or 42%, is not going to be the difference maker in saving democratic majorities, because for that, the president's approval rating needs to significantly get above the low 40s. But he is stopped going in the wrong direction and seems to have turned around a bit, given the credit that the American people seem to be giving the president on his leadership of this moment dealing with Russia's invasion of Ukraine and rallying the west and NATO allies in this moment of crisis. Which may be why Joe Biden, though he gave those addresses last week, is not as focused on a midterm message as he is on making sure to get this global moment correct..

Yesterday seth moulton a massachusetts democrat and peter mayer michigan republican. They say they were trying to push the president to extend that august thirty first deadline from withdrawing from the country. Just i what's your position on that deadline. Should it be pushed back why. I think i'm going to support the president on this. We needed to get out of there. Everyone knows that we need to get out of there be Getting out of there was not gonna be any different sects months from now or a year from now than it was right now But i think that the president has met with the g. seven allies and they've talked about the fact that they're going to be engaged in making sure that americans third third world country Other country folks over there as well as our afghan alleys allies are protected to the extent that we can i he we already taken out seventy thousand. We got twelve thousand just yesterday. It requires us to to be very robust in this but we must protect those who worked with us and must protect the americans that are there. That's a promise that we may and so we just need to keep working at it and keep negotiating with the taliban. I don't think that the president was given a very good option But i believe that at the end of the day we will. We will do the very best. And we will protect those who have worked with us.

Yes blue's clues of all things but these republican consultants who lamented. That's really their concerned. Here is is yes There is a personality. There is a cult of personality within the gop. We used to laugh at the democrats and say they were all the culture personality. But it's the gop too but you know for years. The republicans ran on repealing obamacare in these very same republicans. I suspect to are lamenting. We're not doing policy. They're the ones who scuttled the effort. To get rid of obamacare. We've been running for years on limited government and i suspect these same republicans. Who lamented when we actually did Hold the budget hostage until we got sequestration so The policies that they seem to want to run on are the ones they like to run on but never actually implement so why even have to begin with but more than that. It's also again notable that this story literally is right next door on the same page politico to one that says the republicans aren't even talking about trump on the campaign trail and the democrats don't want to either.

What's going on the policies that are being thrown out there everywhere and the media is really really good at that and so i just wanted to point that out as well that the media is another good example where they will definitely use stories to distract and they don't want to get rid of trump they love trump. He is the one that they can just count on and use added reflection again to all the policies that are being about and talk about on that. Of course much more important. I want to point out to you. Yeah look i i think. That's well said that. They have been doing this anytime they can make it. A trump angle. They will just wait for inflation to hit. They will find new and creative ways to say really. Donald trump's fall did not joe biden. Till i mean look at the gas situation. Donald trump allow drilling on federal land allowed pipelines and sided with saudi arabia in the mini situation after the many terrorist. Start trying to blow up. Saudi oil refineries..

"That's the first article focus on and now there's this put trump on the ballot in twenty twenty two. No thanks say some dims. Trump is a republican problem in a republican cancer that they need to cut out of their party representative. Stephanie murphy says but that's their problem as donald trump cannonballs back into national headlines. More scandal ridden than ever Don't you like the editorial in the start of the sentence it turns out the republicans are the only ones who don't want to fixate on the former president many house democrats feel the same way with their fragile house majority on the line. Many democrats are imploring their colleagues not to take the trump bait after last november's referendum on the ex-president ended up costing their party a dozen seats instead. Those democrats are eager to ploy a policy. Heavy playbook to help stave off a potential midterm whipping and are careful to avoid putting trumpism on the ballot next november to the former president is now a private citizen and it appears our justice system handling whatever potential misdeeds. He may or may not have committed said representative. Stephanie murphy democrat florida among roughly three dozen in danger democrats who will need to win in order for their party to keep the house now. Let's let's just pause pause one moment please. The politico has these stories literally sitting next to each other today. One says the republican party leaders are fretful of donald. trump's continued. Hold on the party and the other starts with this sentence it turns out the republicans aren't the only ones who don't want to fixate on the former president so which is it which is it. Maybe it's the media that's fixated donald trump listen. The man was in charge of the republican party and to a degree still is. He was the elected president of the united states of america. He could run again and he needs to. At least keep up the the idea of running to have clouded twenty twenty two before republicans move onto other things but no man save. Jesus christ himself is immortal or at least will live on this.

"Seven three seven four to five. If you wanna be a part of the program when we come back the media cannot let go of they want donald trump to go away but they themselves cannot let him go away There's a series of stories out in politico today. That this and the contradictions. Hello and welcome. Glad to have you with me. It is erik coast-to-coast these days. The phone number is eight. Seven seven nine seven eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five i. I'm only going to touch on this story. Briefly before i get into what i really wanna talk about. We're about to have the you. Ap reported out the the pentagon refers to them as as unidentified aerial phenomena Not unidentified flying object so no no. Ufo's issue ap's and i am convinced that what we are seeing is probably china or russia or maybe even ourselves And not necessarily unidentified flying objects were little green men now. I will say that based on some of the reports It does appear that that some of the vehicles do appear to defy the laws of physics for example according to some reports they a teardrop shaped object descended from eighty thousand feet to the surface of the ocean and then shot off at thirteen thousand miles per hour with limited acceleration. If that's true well then okay. There's there's something there but if it is true there's there's one of the caveats there if it is true we don't know that it actually is true we will find stuff out But i'm just i i'm more and more convinced there there. There's gotta be logical explanations and just because a lot of people suddenly talking about it doesn't mean it's a little green men. I'm open to angels and demons. More than i am little green men. A you do have this. Whole thing. Called the speed of light As opposed to dimensional portals to to the things unseen but nonetheless that that's i'm i'm fascinated the topic but i actually have something else. I wanna talk about here. I was amazed.

"How partisan political press is it shows in fact Just how the media will take whatever side. The democrats are on and make it the positive side of the story. The national political press now makes the democrats the protagonist in all of these voting stories. Look at what happened in georgia in georgia they passed a fairly reasonable measure that was grossly mischaracterized by the national press including the claim that they were prohibited seen the they were prohibiting people from getting food and water within a hundred feet of the polls which is not true. The legislation provides for water and food with one hundred feet. You just can't be a non voter or non poll worker now in fairness food is questionable but water one hundred percent. The legislation allows for water within one hundred feet of the polling location. It just can't be served by activists by the way outside of one hundred feet of the polls. You can have the food truck at a bar and grill if you want but the media never bothered to cover that as well. Everything is designed to make the republicans look bad now. There's a related story in georgia about the Georgia bill the atlanta journal. Constitution has a story georgia. Absentee ide- law has outsized impact on black and metro voters. Now here's what you've got to understand in georgia like states. It is a requirement that if you're going to vote you've got to have a photo. Id there's a loophole in the law in that. If you go by absentee voting you don't have to have a photo. Id instead they do a signature match to your driver's license or voter registration card and now the ajc is in over two hundred. Seventy two thousand registered. Voters don't have a driver's license or state. Id on file with election officials. Meaning they'd have to submit additional documents to vote by mail under georgia's new law the idea requirements disproportionately affect black voters. Who are much less likely than white voters have. Id numbers matched to their voter registration. According to electric now pay attention to the sleight of end. The requirements directly affect to black voters. Who are much less likely than white voters to have. Id numbers matched to their voter registrations according to election data.
