How do i have to medical debris absent here prince pretty for getting it and it's too obvious like when they talk about what a wonderful job biden doing over there. He's being taken to the cleaners. Our country is being taken to the cleaners from the relieffactor dot com studios. Here's mike gallagher. Lot of breaking news out of the supreme court huge win for religious liberty nine to nothing unanimous decision defending catholic social services in the case against the city of philadelphia. Also the supreme court upheld once more obamacare which makes liars out of all of the predictions. That amy conybeare. It would strike down the affordable care. Act barrett voted yesterday with the majority in a seven to two decision to uphold obamacare. Hey chuck schumer. You can apologize for the disgraceful. Things you said about amy coney barrett dutch remember would do does he. Does he think people will forget that he wrote in a press release and said that a vote by any senator for judge amy coney barrett is a vote to strike down the affordable care act and eliminate protections for millions of americans with pre existing conditions. All great well never mind never mind. You got what you wanted. You got biden in the white house right so lying about somebody like amy coney barrett that's just collateral damage right. How about dick durbin. Hey dick you're gonna apologize. You said in an interview that amy coney barrett was on an assignment by donald trump to get rid of obamacare the democratic whip. Dick durbin said in an interview. I asked her not some deep legal philosophical questions. We just chatted for a minute. And i really wanted to try to understand her experience as a person when it came to healthcare because she is being sent on assignment to the supreme court by president trump and we know what that assignment is eliminate the affordable. Care act well dickey apologize. I can apologize to her. You're say you were wrong. She she voted to uphold obamacare yesterday. How about senator sheldon whitehouse democrat from rhode island on the first day of amy coney. Barrett's confirmation hearings. he referred to her as the judicial torpedo aimed at destroying obamacare. How 'bout that kook. Maisy hirono out of hawaii. She claimed in an interview during barrett's confirmation hearings that republicans. What her on the court to hear the affordable care act case so that she can strike it down. I mean on and on pocahontas said it. She called pocahontas called amy coney barrett a right wing ideologue who does not represent the majority of americans and she was she would work to gut the affordable. Care act bob. Casey from pennsylvania he said that barrett's nomination was being fast tracked due to the obamacare case. They were all wrong and not one of them will have the integrity to apologize. Tamie conybeare it. I don't know how long tucker carlson is going to get to keep his show. Because the kind of things he is saying are are getting the the left. And the machine so riled up. And i wanna play a little bit of his monologue for you about the fbi being involved in january sixth. Because if you don't think something peculiar is going on about january six you're not paying any attention. And i think tucker. Carlson is completely correct to ask really tough questions about why there are these peculiarities. Like who killed ashley babbitt. Like why are these people being held in jail. Still without being charged with insurrection. Like what's going on and tucker is making an argument about the f. b. i.'s involvement in january six cut number six. I want you to listen a little bit too. Tucker carlson's monologue now again. The machine is all up in arms. They are going after him. Big time big time. Here's from newsweek tucker. Carlson doubles down on his claim. The fbi could have been involved with the capital. Riots washington post wrote an article. Tucker carlson's baseless theory blaming the fbi for or nizing the january six capital right. I watch tucker carlson pretty closely. I don't. I didn't hear him blame the fbi. I'm hearing him. Ask some pretty reasonable questions this to me. Sounds like some normal a normal response to a very abnormal situation and that has to do with january. Sixth too many in corporate media who claim that we are spreading. Russian disinformation instead. Please calmly answer these three questions first. How many of the so-called insurrectionists on january sixth had a relationship with the fbi how many of these f. b. i. moles encouraged others that day to break the law the capital. We haven't heard anyone answer these questions or even address them. If the answer is none if none of the protesters were secretly working with the fbi that day then we were wrong and we will apologize for it sincerely. We'll admitted immediately. But if the answer is not none and we're pretty sure isn't none than people claim. Otherwise are liars and hacks should leave the stage immediately because they have betrayed their readers and viewers to if the justice department knew they were going to be protesters massing at the capitol that day. And it's clear they did know. Then why didn't they do anything to stop the riot. Why did police if the capital allow protesters to walk in as video shows that they did. That doesn't make sense what's going on here. Why is no one asking that question third and finally. Why can't we see the tape for ourselves. The government is hiding more than fourteen thousand hours of video surveillance tape. That shows exactly what did happen at the capitol that day. Why are they hiding that. And why are news organizations demanding to see it. You'd hate to think that. Nbc news for example or vox or the atlantic or the washington post of the daily beast of the new york times or any of them are in fact working to protect the regime at the expense of the public but unfortunately we are starting to conclude that. Please prove us wrong. Are those reasonable questions or not. I mean does he sound like a wild eyed conspiracy nut to you. I mean he's been characterized on social media. Which shouldn't be a shot. But he's being characterized as a raving lunatic. Have you ever looked up. The garland shooting the terror attack. Do you know. Do you remember the guy that was killed when he was getting ready to attack.

"The affordable care act was passed along party lines in twenty ten celebrating a seven to two victory at the. Us supreme court today though it was decided on a technicality. And not on the merits. The newest justice amy conybeare it was among the seventy chose to turn away the challenge to the law. Democrats spent weeks during her confirmation hearings warning that she was being nominated to the court solely for the purpose of destroying the. Aca do believe this. Hearing a clear attempt to jam turn a supreme court nominee will take healthcare away from millions of people if judge barrett is confirmed american. Stand to lose the benefits that the aca provide you remember that conversation. Eighty conybeare two ends up on the court. In a way goes the year obamacare. Way goes your healthcare that you love so much course sheets. That's specifically she's been nominated went the other direction yesterday as we found out in the supreme court ruling when it came out so that was all crap which is what most of politics is. Let's hear from the appropriately named dick durbin back in the the confirmation days forty-six we naturally draw the conclusion. There's going to be a third strike It when it comes to texas and california you said it won't affect pre existing conditions if the petitioners have their way. There will not be affordable care act to protect brings system conditions and not hostile to the. I'm not hostile to any statute that you pass the hall of course us claiming that kamla dianne feinstein sniffed her out now. We'll give the semi-final word to jonathan turley and forty seven. She was treated shamefully during her confirmation hearing. They surrounded her with pitchers that made her look like some type of judicial serial killer. I mean they they basically said all these people are going to have their health care taken away because of you and i doubt many of these members are going to come back and apologize to her. That's just not done. Unfortunately in our age of rage but she deserves an apology. Remember these words. Commit them to memory. Tattoo them onto your forehead. H l menken. The whole lame of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed and hence glamour's to be led to safety by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins. All of them imaginary. Yeah next time. Somebody hits you with a hob goblin in politics just member. They're just trying to treat you like a sheep. So we're talking last hour about how the johnston johnson vaccine for a variety of reasons only makes up four percent of people that got vaccinated. And i thought you know that would end up being the one everybody wanted. But they're to have to throw out millions of doses that are about to expire the current number out on americans have received at least one dose. This isn't even the that are fully vaccinated is only at half of the country. That's received one dose remember. Joe biden's goal which originally looked very easily to make was to have seventy percent of people vaccinated by the fourth of july. That now cleared not gonna not a chance. It's going to happen. Because the polling shows that of the half of america that's not vaccinated half of those say they have no intention to at all and then the other half might have some intention but they'll never get around to and as usual. The number that's left out of the equation is people who had the covid and have natural immunity percentage. What the vaccinated is that. I would like to know that what we don't know that that's unknown number but some people think it's is thirty thirty five percent so that gets you to eighty eighty five percent of the population that has some immunity which is yeah well which um the herd immunity number but in terms of the vaccine The those of us that were willing to get it ran out and got it as fast as we could and everybody else's Now no no thanks and so it looks like about half the country is just not going to get it. Okay now you know now and maybe you don't need to do anything about it as you're pointing out with the herd immunity thing and Luckily there i wonder though the the thing that they don't know and this is completely unknown is how many people who had covid got the vaccine. How much overlap is there. We don't know that. Oh that's right. Yeah that kinda goes in the other direction terms of achieving herd immunity yep if that thirty percent that have immunity from the covid. Also got the shot. Well that brings us way back down again. yeah There's a friend of the armstrong and getty show very bright fellow. Who's been listening to various podcasts. And things and has Concerns about the weirdness society associated with the vaccine. I can't find it anywhere that information anywhere but the sources he mentioned so. I'm not sure quite what to make of it. And i did another round of questioning all of the men and women of medicine that i personally know. And it said it's a number of folks In not a single one of them has any concern about the safety of the vaccine. So how do you know. Maybe they're being fooled at a little. And i'll come on the air and say yeah. This is how the world works. Sometimes even doctors have no idea. But i just i don't have any worry about it. Not serious words. So the states that have the highest percentage of adults have had at least one dose of vermont massachusetts in hawaii around seventy percent states with the lowest mississippi alabama louisiana. All usual suspects all side by side. Down around a third. Which is you know. Half of what those high states have boy. That's really low. You can absolutely see a regional hammer. Come down in the fall. I would be surprised if it doesn't happen. Sure you got hurt. Immunity near state. We'll you're going to be fine but if you don't the the you know these new variants could take hold on some of these states. Well and keep in mind. We have freedom of travel in the united states so if mississippians and all of a sudden decide to travel to the four corners of the contiguous forty eight. That could be a problem for me again. Ain't gonna catch on. Yeah yeah but if they do that jack it's going to be incredibly expensive. You know the conversation about how expensive rental cars are right now. Yeah they may double again by august. Yeah seriously just go where you're going by a car driving around for a week then sell it. It'll probably be worth five thousand bucks morton you bought it for anyway. You buy a used car. Yeah good idea. Right lancer by. Somebody's car go on craigslist right.

Garland confirmation is a stage for 4 of GOP's 2024 hopefuls

"App. Federal Judge Merrick Garland is president Biden's nominee to become attorney general. He testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The hearing lasted most of the day We begin with committee chair Dick Durbin of Illinois. This hearing will come to order today. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to be the 86th attorney general of the United States. Judge Garland I wanna welcome you and your family. I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the

"It was one of my worst votes creating the hundred to one and all the rest of it. I finally feel like I'm getting it. Right. And the fact that I get it right means a lot of people will be treated, right? Not all of them. Sit a lot to do. This is just the opening. It is the first step as we characterize it. There's a lot more that needs to be done. But we have finally decided I think as a nation moving toward the feeling we're gonna fight the war on drugs with our brains, not our muscles. We're going to think about ways that stop drugs coming into this country to deal with the interdiction of and also deal with the treatment of people in a much different way, it reflects the fact that the opioid epidemic which has taken over in this country has opened the eyes of people everywhere too. The fact that says a problem of the inner city anymore. There isn't any suburb to wealthy. No town too small to avoid this opioid epidemic. And people who are looking at the victims are not seeing poor inner city living people they're seeing their brothers and sisters and sons and daughters. So they're starting to think about drugs and a different way. I think that we are evolving as nation as we think about drugs and how to deal with them. I believe it's a scourge. It breaks my heart to hear when someone is addicted. But at least now we're not saying, it's a moral curse. In your finished were saying to them. It's a disease we're gonna treat it. Well, I wanna put it to you this way if you were not a Senator back in the eighties when those mandatory minimums and three strikes route into crack cocaine despair, if you were not a Senator that would have happened. Anyway, it was where the heard was going, but I will say this. If you were not a Senator now the correction for that would not have happened you or the guy on our side of the aisle and. I know you're going to try to clearly the White House. Indispensable partner clearly Grassley in Inle indispensable partners. But as democrat in the democratic caucus, I know for sure if dick Durbin was not a Senator we would not have this day. And I want to tell you as you know, I live in an inner city community with people who have been adversely affected by an unfair unjust war on drugs. You are a champion my friend, and I am so grateful that you're my friend, and that you have allowed me this last five years to be your partner on getting this over the finish line. And then a great partner the man who brought me into politics was impulse. I am. And he was a Senator in my state before me he had some basic rules, and I live by when it comes to public service. He said look for two things in public service honesty and somebody who's willing to help the helpless that those were the north star the guideline when it comes to what I want to be a member of the Senate, and I'll bet you do too well beyond I mean because this is the thing. For me in this day of politics were money pouring in using pick constituencies that have no lobbyists. You fight for people who come who. Don't don't nobody fights for that are marginalized, and it's often lonely place. But I Meyer you so much and me my career be marked by the values that you exhibit every single day told you visit federal prisons pretty well. You are. But that and I'm sorry to get you know, one of these guys says before you tell me about your religion for show to me how you treat other people's. I don't wanna talk religion.

I've seen you stand up and talk for for immigrants and DACA kids. And then clearly on criminal Justice reform before I even got to the United States Senate. Now, you said something in the press conference, which was I thought it was really moving.

Maybe go out there and reach out to some nontraditional groups to bring them in as part of your coalition because the Democrats have created the impression that every immigrant in America today is poor and from central America, South America, or Mexico.

"Have a very tenuous pathways regaining the majority in the senate to begin with but if dick durbin continues at pays ended repented democrats who currently are in red states end up voting no it could be that the republicans will meaningfully expand their majority in the united states senate the president may wanna win this one by a narrow margin despite the fact that a big endorsement from the united states senate would be a good endorsement for for judge brett kavanagh it doesn't seem like we're getting anywhere near a big endorsement it won't be a landslide vote it won't be a unanimous decision it'll be nothing like that so maybe it would be better just to be close and let these democrats sort of kamikaze their way out of the united states senate autism sticky wicket isn't it i always wanted to use that phrase conversation i finally get to use it here's the thing the democrats do i think determine and could play devil's advocate they can afford to lose a couple of seats because according to the cook political report which we talk about yeah they have revised the house readings map for every congressional district in the us they did it on friday they found that democrats have a shot up to fifty six seats in november so losing losing some seats i is not necessarily going to be a terrible thing for them now i know that we're not talking necessarily just the house or talking about the senate as well but i wonder if for them they're willing to fall on that sword to deny the president this pick just out of principle because if they pick up seats in the house that that to that that's a blue wave and it does it does help stop of a lot of the president's agenda right however the president's still going to get get to nominate somebody else so that he's always still going to get to nominate somebody else in that seat so whether they like it or not eventually the president is going to get to fill that supreme court seat i don't think the democrats can keep that seat open and keep it at a at a out of eight justices a four four court until the twenty twenty i don't think that that's possible i don't see that happening i could be wrong but i think that's their game plan at this point is that we're just going to keep obstructing obstructing obstructing keep it a four four court and this way they don't have to you know they have a little worried about any day of little recourse to do that short of physically barricading the doors of the united states senate well michael moore said that he was ready to surround the capital and michael moore pretty much could on his own he could literally sit around the capital michael moore could do it.

"Dick durbin soundbites it just it just frosts me but you don't folks at the same time i'm gonna i'm gonna you i'm in a good mood because our side is prevailing they are coming unglued and there's there's a rule of thumb and that is when your enemy is making a fool of himself stand out of the way and just let it happen nothing that they are doing is engendering growth or not persuading people on the fence they're driving people away that's the dirty little secret here is that these radical leftists in the mainstream democrats and i don't believe there's been a mainstream democrat for years but but i'm just talking now in comparison to the new young radicals people like durbin pelosi i mean they're they're radical leftists on their own and always have been but when they glommed on and sign on to some of this anti american rhetoric what do they they held do they think they're doing they are driving people away i think these people in the democrat party would be stunned if they really knew how many obama voters voted for trump and i think they're starting to learn you know these people lied to themselves like you would not believe and they convinced themselves of the only people that voted for trump or people at slobber that are missing a couple of front teeth that have a vocabulary about seventy five words they sit on a front porch playing the banjo spitting tobacco while shooting up heroin i mean that's who they think trump voters are and they're now learning trump voters are college educated that trump voters crossed the democratic spectrum and that many of them were obama voters but you know who's really really taking the channel about now and that is the conservative never trumper crowd i haven't talked about this on purpose by design but i'm just going to mention it here in reference george will be ford the retirement announcement of anthony kennedy so frustrated then he wrote a piece suggesting the only hope for america is if all republicans vote democrat to get rid of trump and everything related to trump now stop and think about that for a minute that's almost as off the wall is people on the left or off the wall that's in the midst of policies that all these intellectual conservatives have extensively been fighting for their whole lives trump is implementing much of what they have claimed to believe in but maybe they didn't believe that much because as it's being implemented they can't bring themselves to support it because of the guy who was president while it's happening vote democrat give up the supreme court give the supreme court to the democrat party give up on the idea of america remaining as founded that's the answer to donald trump on the republican conservative intellectual side has there ever been a group of people more wrong about their own party maybe but i can't think of it good grief is ever a bunch of people ought to be humiliated and embarrassed it is the fo intellectuals on the never trump side of conservatism all the predictions that trump failure all the predictions of disaster or not a single one of them have come true and in fact it's been just the exact opposite now we have the democrats for whom we should all vote now oh yeah that's the solution raising hell over the fact that we have a police force at the border we're talking about two thousand kids out of twelve thousand that ended up being separated let me give you some numbers here's all of this marching all of these vagina hat wearing an tif of black lives matter take take your pick whatever they wanna call themselves screaming and yelling about separated families and how it's an america house so horrible there are right this minute as we speak two point seven million children with a parent in prison two point seven million there are four hundred thousand kids in foster care separated from their families these are americans by the way two point seven million american children with an american parent in prison four hundred thousand kids in foster care but somehow somehow the democrat party has zeroed in on two thousand illegal immigrants who violated the law who got temporarily separated from their kids and all of this all of that means america's horrible and sucks an ice is out of control let them keep talking folks they're driving the people we want crazy crazy they're pulling it off here is bob in peoria bob you're next i'm glad you waited it's great to have you on the.

"Dick durbin soundbites it just it just frosts me but you don't folks at the same time i'm gonna i'm gonna jockey i'm in a good mood because our side is prevailing they are coming unglued and there's this is a rule of thumb and that is when your enemy is making a form of himself stand out of the way and just let it happen nothing that they are doing is engendering growth they're not persuading people on the fence they're driving people away that's the dirty little secret here is that these radical leftists in the mainstream democrats and i don't believe there's been a mainstream democrat for years but but i'm just talking now in comparison to the new young radicals people like durbin pelosi i mean they're they're radical leftists on their own and always have been but when they on and sign on to some of this anti american rhetoric what are they they held do they think they're doing they are driving people away i think these people in the democrat party would be stunned if they really knew how many obama voters voted for trump and i think they're starting to learn you know these people lied to themselves like you would not believe and they convinced themselves of the only people voted for trump for people slobber that are missing a couple of front teeth that have a vocabulary about seventy five words they sit on a front porch playing the banjo spitting tobacco while shooting up heroin i mean that's who they think trump voters are and they're now learning trump voters are college educated that trump voters crossed the democratic spectrum in that many of them were obama voters you know who's really really taking on the chat about now and that is the conservative nevertrumper crowd you know i haven't talked about this on purpose by design but i'm just going to mention it here in reference george will be ford the retirement announcement of anthony kennedy so frustrated that he wrote a piece suggesting the only hope for america is if all republicans vote democrat to get rid of trump in everything related to trump now stop and think about that for a minute that's almost as off the wall is people on the left or off the wall that's in the midst of policies that all of these intellectual conservatives have extensively been fighting for their whole lives trump is implementing much of what they have claimed to believe in but maybe they didn't believe if that much because as it's being implemented they can't bring themselves to support it because of the guy who was president while it's happening vote democrat give up the supreme court give the supreme court to the democrat party give up on the idea of america remaining as founded that's the answer to donald trump on the republican conservative intellectual side has there ever been a group of people more wrong about their own party maybe but i can't think of it good grief is ever a bunch of people that ought to be humiliated and embarrassed it is the fo intellectuals and the never trump side of conservatism all the predictions that trump failure all the predictions of disaster not a single one of them have come true and in fact it's been just the exact opposite now we have the democrats for whom we should all vote now oh yeah that's the solution raising hell over the fact that we have a police force at the border we're talking about two thousand kids out of twelve thousand that ended up being separated let me give you some numbers all of this marching all of these vagina hat wearing antiques black lives matter take take your pick whatever they wanna call themselves screaming and yelling about separated families and how it's an american house so horrible there are right this minute as we speak two point seven million children with a parent in prison two point seven million there are four hundred thousand kids in foster care separated from their families these are americans by the way two point seven million american children with an american parent in prison four hundred thousand kids in foster care somehow somehow the democrat party has zeroed in on two thousand illegal immigrants who violated the law who got temporarily separated from their kids and all of this all of that means america's horrible and sucks an ice is out of control let them keep talking folks they're driving the people we want crazy crazy they're pulling it off here is bob in peoria bob you're next i'm glad you waited it's great to have you on the.

"You have a united states senator a federal official trying to intimidate a private media company and nobody says squat you had a democrat president of the united states obama surveilling media companies and reporters and nobody says squat donald trump openly in front of the whole world specifically accuses certain media outlets of running with fake news of concocting news specific reporters and it said that he's trying to destroy the first amendment not dick durbin not barack obama dick durbin is a tyrant and he's a coward and i challenge them again to come on this program and confronts somebody who knows what the hell he is and what the hell he's doing rather than the soft interviews that he goes on this company sinclair did nothing wrong it's just more of the same saul alinsky tactics more of the same left wing marxist type tactics being used by the media against media outlets that don't conform ironically enough to their pretorious guard ideology and the only reason dick durbin is going after this company sinclair is because he can't control it like the democrat party control most of the media today most of the media controls the democrat party today.
