"Lose. Why? Because we haven't done anything for a year to dissuade Putin from marching on Ukraine. By the way, this morning, nice little touch by Putin, Russia announces nuclear exercises as fresh Ukraine talks plan. So they're firing off their missiles. There are some other stories. The New York attorney general has gotten court authority to depose former president Trump, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr.. Now the last two will be matter of fact. There's not that it's hell. The accountants withdrew their bank statements. If you think that the Trump kids or the president looked at the bank statements, okay, you can believe that. There's no evidence of that. I'm not sure what the book show, I don't know if they're cooked. I don't know if they borrowed money against fake assets. I don't know any of that stuff. Neither do you. All I know is I could prep Don Junior. I could prep Ivanka to do a deposition. I'm not even good at that, but I could do it. I could be the greatest lawyer in the world. I could be federal judge dick Leon, really one of the better litigators I ever saw work. I could be, I could be dick Hauser, but you'd have to get him off the golf course. And he doesn't do that anymore. Basically, at a restaurant, at home or in a golf course. And I get the best lawyer in the world. I get Stephen Larson in LA. That's the guy I'm calling whenever I get in trouble. And say, you've got to do depo prep with former president Trump. Now every lawyer who is driving anywhere right now or getting ready to go to work just put down their razor or pull over to the side of the road and started to weep a little bit in sympathy with whoever is the lawyer that is going to prepare a president Trump for depo prep. Because he is not going to be a great opponent. No, no, no, no. That's not going to go well. At any event, that's going to happen. And then let me talk to you about this story. And I've been telling you about it. So I feel bad, but I feel not bad. Sorry, not sorry. Mortgage rates close in on 4%. That's in The Wall Street Journal today, and this is an ad for Andrew and Todd dot com. And it's not normal time, but I saw that on the front page of The Wall Street Journal and I got up earlier this morning. Mortgage rates closed in on 4%. I told you, I told you, it's going to get worse. So if you're going to buy a house, do it now with Andrew and Todd dot com, call them a triple a triplet 1172. They've been sponsored the show for a decade. I've known Andrew for 20 plus years and Todd for half that time. I know I'm trust him, love the guys, actually. And my audience loves them. But they can't help you unless you call them, triple a triple and 1172. Now you've missed probably 25, $30 a month. By waiting two weeks, but go call your kid up and say, you got to go buy a house. I'm going to become an unoccupied co borrower. Call up your grandson or grandchild. Go tell them to do this because it's not coming back. I can't tell you can't print $4 trillion and expect interest rates to defend her. Okay, so 4% isn't 3% and 3% isn't 2%. So you miss the only guy I know who hit the mark. I know one guy who hit the mark, the very bottom. One guy. So there's one person you're not going to match. But don't get left behind. Call Andrew and Todd dot com. I also got asked about the Durham filing last night on special report with Bret baier. I am very skeptical of what Durham has got going. And I said it again last night, cut 25. I want to get you two Harold and Hugh to weigh in on that filing and kind of big picture. Hugh first to you. Well, I agree that the media has made too much of this filing. I think I said two nights ago. We don't know anything yet because sussman can either go John dean or he can go Gordon liddy. But I know that John Durham said there will be motions eliminate coming and Harold and I did go to Michigan law school and we both know one thing from our time there from great law professors. Nobody knows nothing about what the prosecution has until the prosecution rolls out its indictment. That's right. I do say, I don't over to you. That's it. All right, I already knew Harold because nobody knows nothing. You don't know nothing. I don't know nothing. I do know that Democrats are in big trouble after the San Francisco school board election, cut 26. We talked last night about the San Francisco school board and that recall effort of three of those members. The national review writes this. Americans rejecting far left progressivism. Americans in overwhelmingly democratic cities are concluding that far left progressivism has not worked, and he's not working. The radical approach to policing was resoundingly rejected by voters of Minneapolis in November. Now the radical approach to education has been resoundingly rejected by the voters of San Francisco. If progressives can't win there, they certainly can't win nationwide. Well, appeasement at home, I mean, appeasement abroad and inflation at home. We've got an open southern border. We've got closed police precincts. And now we have this earthquake. The tsunami warning out of San Francisco, Brad. Democrats are going to run fast. They're going to sprint away from everything they've done for the last two years, especially with.

"Nobody suggestion inflation on the way no series economist does totally different. I mean look. Stock market is higher than it has been in. All of history even went down this month even down this month. Now i look at the stock market as a means by which to judge the economy like mine. My predecessor did. But he'd be very he'd be talking to you every day. The last five months about now the stock market so high higher than any time in history still higher than any time in history. So that's not how. I judge whether or not we're note that the president just talked about the stock market for a minute and then so that's not what he does. It's what his predecessor did. Of course you talk about. The stock market is one factor among many but his idea that no serious person says inflation. He qualified it by saying unchecked. Inflation inflation has always check. There's always an upper limit we're talking about is wealth destroying income ravaging inflation. And that's definitely here. Meanwhile joe is taken a victory lap on the economy even as it says how what's going on with the delta variant cut nineteen for all predictions of doom and gloom.

Gdp growth this year because of the amount of money spent last year so when the teddy bear picnic convenes full of democrats talking about all those predictions of doom and gloom woods understand. It's just them talking to each other on. Msnbc and cnn because everybody knew we're going to have a boom when you spend a trillion dollars and everyone we're gonna have inflation and we're gonna have a lot more inflation. Because of the extra trillion president biden spent and if they add three point five trillion more. Well say goodbye to this economy. The covet wave is not the united story primarily the delta variant is crushing the developing world. And that's why the stock market fell. In addition because it's the american market can't carry the world on itself. The american economy is big and broad-shouldered chicago is everywhere now.

Nineteen back scenes and by the way any arm of the government can indeed require. Koga vaccines for those who use its benefits or who are in its employ.

Irvine used to scream at his players to get the flu shot in the off-season saying if we're in the finals and you get the flu. I eight say at very colorful.

Join the military. You don't have any rights. But i would extend that to government employees and yes and matija indiana university. If i'm a college and i make that choice and it's up to them. Some don't wanna do that. That's fine but if they do it there can any private business can do. It doesn't violate your rights as an employee. The only thing that can happen is that the government can't make you do it. There would be some legislation possible. It would then be subject to constitutional stress test depending on the exemptions that allowed and and whether or not it was uniformly applied We would take a look at that point but you certainly could have the military do it in the military should. Gop house later Kevin mccarthy named his five gop picks for the january six committee the ranking member as a fine choice. You have congressman. Jim banks on this show. Many times set aside the fact indiana. He's brilliant. he's calm. he's thorough. He will have a great staff. He will lead a great committee. He will be this This committee's dick. Cheney if you remember dick. Cheney is the whip in the house of representatives during iran contra was young man and was the ranking minority member of the iran. Contra at the ollie. North committee did a bang-up job then a private practice lawyer. Dick leon went on to become a federal judge. He needs a fine minority council and let them or council. Do their work Jim bank stand control the committee. And you'll be fine. Pentagon is agreed to house afghan interpreters at virginia military base. Who raw this great about. Twenty five hundred afghans or coming in the first wave and that is great. We've got to get them out of there. An additional four thousand interpreters and family members are in line.

It's just my sense that he's probably going to go through with this. Enforce the vote. Because i think he wants to move this along and one way or the other have some work product to show. I think there's a lot of pressure on in the democratic base not to do too much negotiating with republicans if any and this whole thing has sort of become a mess in part because The president undermined the bipartisan infrastructure. Deal the minute. It was reached and in part now. Because you don't have legislation it's finalized you don't have legislative. Language and republicans are really wary about voting for shelbyville now it should be noted Majorities in both parties routinely do this sort of thing when they want to force the issue. Move things along. You can serve substitute things out. But it just makes it very sticky and schumer decides to sort of slow things down or exhibits more patients. This can bleed august then. There's pressure to.

"Again after day. Spent up in maine closing at a weekend. Joined by congressman. Mike rogers of alabama's third congressional district. He's the ranking minority member on the house armed services committee very important. Good morning congressman. Great to have yet. Thanks for having me. You got a couple of bad guys on that committee. Gallagher and walsh. How do you keep in mind. They are up to mr general rule all the time all the time and they're talking football. I don't know what you do. Look chairman former chairman future chairman. I've got a lot to ask. Let's start with this reading list. Controversy that chairman of the joint chiefs this cno. They're all sorts of reading lists controversy. Why don't you put out a reading list. and i. my suggestion would be chaos under evan. Bye josh rogin. Doomed by nile ferguson. Twenty thirty four by admiral stavridis then the cello spy. Daniel silva conclude some novels for your pennsylvania members because they can't read series books. But what about that. Why don't you put out a reading list. That's a good idea. I guess. I need to be working on that. Well those four chaos under heaven. Josh rogin doom. Those are hard to read. But i've wonderful read serious books and then twenty thirty four and the cellist are great novels. They'll teach your pittsburgh people especially their slow. Mr. they're slow. Tell me something congressman rogers. What do you think about the so-called select committee that nancy pelosi is suggesting is just another partisan endeavor. She's trying her best to drag this out as long as she can to keep attention on the ride of january six is. It's completely unnecessary. We knew After the commission by general honore. What the problems were and in the senate commission that just released a report. A couple weeks ago was very thorough bipartisan. There's nothing else to learn is just as she wants to continue this dynamic of focus on the ride 'cause she wants to justify continuing proxy voting which is something that she said up. is last year and if she ever let go then all of a sudden her members will accident show up to vote and with her narrow martins in the house. She can't afford to worry about that. She wants to keep his proxy voting. Go and that's what he's going to keep talking about about the let community the threat to members and the pandemic and not try to keep attention away from what a lousy job. They're doing his country. Now you see that's why we talked to be latin. Thought of that aspect congressman. I am opposed to it as an eight five. Partisan clown kangaroo court if it was seven to six fifty five percent of the budget and staff to the dams forty five to the republicans with complete authority in the charity subpoena and in the minority leader to spin up. I'd be less concerned but that ain't what it is. It's eight five with no authority in the in the republican members. I know the leader pretty well. I've known kevin forever. He do a good job selecting. And you get a council like me as your senior counsel you could do dick cheney and dick leon a replay of iran. Contra would be a serious endeavor. this is a show trial. This is not a serious effort. That's exactly my point is there's nothing else to learn. She wants to keep talking about this because he takes tension away from you. Know the ridiculous Reckless spending they're doing and this legislation socialist shooting out of the house on a daily basis. There's fortunately is going. Nowhere in the senate It's all shocking jive. And that's what they're good at all right now. Let's talk congressmen about the quote. Bipartisan closed infrastructure deal. I am not opposed to what the ten members agreed to. I'm very opposed to not passing that before reconciliation. If they begin reconciliation they pass a budget bill in either house of the senate that things should be dead because the whole idea was to pass that and then it would be on mansion cinema maggie house another to decide how to check the democrats in the senate. Joe biden double-crossed. Everybody and i mean. Does anyone fooled by what he did. Of course not and there's nothing going to pass over here. They're they're they're talking Delusional about passing. This stuff. That bipartisan deal. Ever got to pass the house and pelosi already said she wouldn't even gonna let it come up if they didn't have the reconciliation bill. I so everything between the leadership of the house is just a dog fall. Happen and people need to manage expectations. Now you just use an alabama word on me dogg fall. That might be understood. What is it that might be pittsburgh. Where what is the dog. Fall congressman at me is gonna come to a drawl. Okay okay so let me ask you about if it was. Just the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill would it fail for lack of the left in the house democratic caucus or would it fail because of the freedom caucus. Which way would it go there. He would bring it down okay so it. Just the bipartisan bills. Not getting through period. Ryan surprised by a chance for reconciliation. Bill i think being enough for the list. But i could be wrong now. I know the reconciliation. Bill would fail. It won't get through the senate but as it's drafted by bernie sanders but what about the standalone infrastructure. Bill would there be enough center right. Republicans that are not liberal. Old school democrats are just go for the pork and the infrastructure. I doubt it really. That's interesting enough of the left. A squad plus the freedom caucus would kill it. Wouldn't you look at the narrow margins over here. Yeah i mean look. The democrats have three or four vote marches. All they've got and it's it's just hard to thread the needle in this place these days. I i just find it. I learned to lower mike speculation. So what can be accomplished. You know you look back when we were in the majority and we at two hundred. Roughly forty five members. We could almost never get to eighteen because we couldn't hit the freedom caucus on board. So when you come down to a situation where the knocked. The margins are bucks narrower You have to really lower your expectations. You have to find genuine bipartisanship the only way to do it. It does not exist in this place right now not with the leadership that we've got you know you've got nancy pelosi. Who knows. This is her last. Rob see advice leave. And so she's and plus she's being pushed hard by the left and then decide you know schumer's terrified by you'll see challenging him in a primary so he's so far off the way i guarantee you is about a third of the democrat members of the senate or heightened behind cinema and Joe mansion hope and they continue to fight because it could drag them down to. I just think that there's no way you're gonna get bipartisanship dynamic. Let's talk a little bit about your committee. Because i should have added a fifth book to your reading. List is ranking minority member of house armed services.

"Josh i will ask you from your vast trove of memory to compare the select committee on iran contra and its climate and operation with what you expect to happen with the so-called select committee on the insurrection. Well rencontre was a little bit before my time. I remember the history I remember the the the you know from reading about it but Yeah i mean this. Is you know this is a consequence. I think of The the bipartisan committee attempt. Not not going through progress. Mcconnell opposing it mccarthy opposing it and and now it's going to be much more partisan Affair and never see that may eight th the outcome and made answer the result But but pelosi was determined to go through with us to have some degree of of of of of accountability from her point of view in terms of what happened on january. say where. it's not the hook josh. because it's a fifty fifty congress actually fifty point five forty nine point. Oh nine five right something like that instead. She got an eight five committee democrat republican and very limited powers from the minority. This is in contrast to iran. Contra where dick. Cheney was the ranking minority leader with full authority over his legal staff including future federal judge. Dick leon senior counsel here. Nancy pelosi hasn't even guaranteed the leader. Mccarthy the right to name the five so while the senate did not agree to set up. And i'm glad they didn't so called a special commission. The select committee. Precedents are not partisan she has made this partisan therefore lack credibility out of the gate. And i just think if anyone goes back to study iran contra and you're too young remember too but i remember quite well for peggy. Noonan's what i saw at the revolution. It worked it worked. Well because whip cheney and council. Leon were in charge but they also had the confidence of both sides of the house in the undertaking and the rules of the committee. You i i agree with you that this whole exercise is partisan i think partisan on both sides and sadly there there has been no real. I think the commission that There was bipartisan support. A couple of dozen house. Republicans agreed with democrats the have Commission process To to examine. What happened on january six. I think it would have been a much more fair and balanced way of going about this But but republican leadership. Frankly worried about the politics. Midterm election did not want that to go through. So you know. I agree with you that this is partisan but i don't know how it how you escape a disconnect the partisanship from this with. That's josh wait a minute. That's easy you make it. Six seven republican democrat and you give forty five percent of the budget to the republicans to spend and fifty five percent of the budget the democrats suspending you give them nearly equal time with witnesses and you give them subpoena power. That's how you make it bipartisan. Even if it's one house that's how you do it. It's very easy for pelosi to have done that. She chose not to do it right as a response though to not having a commission that was intended to be bipartisan nonpartisan. However you want to describe it. I mean i think that was sort of the ball that was sort of the original intent and then it became business partisan football. Josh i disagree i wanna just great because the senate is an independent body. They do not wanna do. It's fifty fifty and they thought the rules of the road or not fair so they turned it down. They thought the timing was not fair so they turned it down so the ball goes back to pelosi and she can choose again partisan nonpartisan she again chooses hyper partisan and she doesn't have to do so so there isn't any fault on the the house or the senate all pelosi's decision to do what she always does. Which is the hyper politicized everything. Yeah i mean. I let political analyst. I look at it like which party the word you have. Bipartisan support and there were republican. Quite a few in the house and the senate as well that did support. The commission did agree with democrats. Originally were I'm looking back january six. I'm having a process to hold them some folks accountable and So i mean look we. The i talk writing about the infrastructure debate and it's the democrats who are divided and that's that's where the politics are in that is the fact that you had republicans quite a few of them. Who wanted to go about doing the commission mcconnell mccarthy for i understand the political considerations there but they ultimately decided not to go through with it so i think everything's artist i. I don't see anyone holding where we disagree about that. Nancy pelosi setup the original commission to and about the time that people vote in twenty twenty two instead of giving it a six month time line. I think the budgeting and the authorities were not equal the subpoena authority etc. But in any event she didn't have to politicize it quickly. Josh the republicans. Have to make a choice. I hear jim jordan going to be there ranking member of the five i would make sure the others were not other than hyper competent senior members of the of the congress and i would make sure that everyone agreed to let the senior counsel to the committee asked the question. I volunteered for that job. Is there any indication what the republicans will do with their five seats. Is it going to be jim jordan as the ranking minority member. Yeah very very strong possibility. I think given that this is going. on more. partisan route expected the some of the feistier house. Republicans they want some competent but also who are going to get in the trenches with with democrats. Either i agree with you that this. I don't think you could be a lot more than.

"The Beltway again after day spent up in Maine, closing on a weekend joined by Congressman Mike Rogers of Alabama's third Congressional District. He's the ranking minority member on the House Armed Services Committee very important. Good morning, Congressman Great to have yet. Thanks for having me. You know, you got a couple of bad guys on that committee. Gallagher and waltz. How do you keep them in line? They are up to Mr from the general rule all the time all the time, and they're talking football. I just don't know what you do. Look up, Chairman, former Chairman Future Chairman. I've got a lot to ask you, but let's start with this reading list Controversy. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs. The CNO. They're all sorts of reading list controversies. Why don't you put out a reading list? My suggestion would be chaos under Evan. By Josh Rogan DOOMED by Nile Ferguson 2034 by Admiral Stavridis THAN the cellist by Daniel Silva. I mean, you got to conclude some novels for your Pennsylvania members because they can't read serious books. But what about that? Why don't you put out a reading list? That's a good idea. I guess I need to be working on that. Well, those four chaos Senator Hoeven, Josh Rogan and doom those are hard to read, but wonderful, read serious books and then 2034 the cellist, er great novels. They'll teach her Pittsburgh people, especially, they're slow. Mr Chair, their slow, uh, tell me something. Congressman Rogers. What do you think about the so called select committee that Nancy Pelosi is suggesting? It's just another partisan endeavor. She's trying her best to drag this out. As long as she can to keep attention on the ride of January six. It's it's completely unnecessary. We knew after, uh the commissioned by General Honore what the problems were, and then the Senate Commission that just released their report A couple of weeks ago was very there are very bipartisan. There's nothing else to learn. It's just she wants to continue this dynamic of focus on the ride because she wants to justify continuing proxy voting. Which is something that she set up. You know last year and if he ever lets it go And all of a sudden her members will actually have to show up to vote and with her narrow margins in the house, she can't afford to worry about that. If you want to keep his proxy voting going He's going to keep talking about about the select committee, the threat to members and the pandemic and not try to keep attention away from what a lousy job they're doing governing this country. You see, That's why we talked to people. I hadn't thought of that aspect. Congressman. I am opposed to it as an 85. Partisan clown car Kangaroo court If it was 7 to 6 55% of the budget and the staff to the dams, 45 to the Republicans with complete authority and the chair to subpoena and in the minority leader to subpoena I'd be less concerned, but that ain't what it is. It's 85 with no authority in the Republican members. I know the leader pretty well. I've known Kevin forever. He'd do a good job selecting and you get a council like me as your senior counsel. You could do Dick Cheney and Dick Leon. A replay of Iran Contra being serious endeavor. This is a show trial. This is not a serious effort. That's exactly my point. There's nothing else to learn. She wants to keep talking about this because it takes attention away from No, this ridiculous, reckless spending they're doing. And this legislation social legislation. They're shooting out of the house on a daily basis that fortunately is going nowhere in the Senate. It's all second job, and that's what they're good at. All right now. Let's talk Congressman about the quote, bipartisan, close quote, Infrastructure deal. I am not opposed to what the 10 members agreed to. I am very opposed to not passing that before reconciliation if they begin reconciliation if they pass the budget bill in either the House or the Senate that things should be dead. The whole idea was to pass that and then it would be on mansion Cinema, Maggie House and and others to decide how to check the Democrats in the Senate. Joe Biden double crossed everybody, And, I mean, does anyone fooled by what he did? Of course not. And and Q. There's nothing going to pass over here. They're they're talking delusional E about passing this stuff. That bipartisan deal was never going to pass the house. Pelosi already said she wasn't going to let it come up. They didn't have the reconciliation bill first, so everything that between the leadership of the House and Senate is just a dog ball not going to happen. And people need to manage their expectations. Now you just use an Alabama word on me Dog fall that might be understood. What is a dog? That might be a Pittsburgh where? What is a dog fall? Congressman, That means that this kind of come to a draw. Okay. Okay. So let me ask you about if it was just the bipartisan infrastructure bill. Would it fail for lack of the left in the House Democratic Caucus, or would it failed because of the Freedom Caucus? Which way would it go there? Take your pick. Okay, would bring it down. Okay, so it's just the bipartisan bills not getting through period, right? I'm surprised by never been a chance of the reconciliation bill. I think being enough for the left, but I could be wrong. Now I know the reconciliation bill would fail. It won't get through the Senate but as it's drafted by Bernie Sanders, But what about the standalone infrastructure bill? Would there be enough Senate right Republicans that are not liberal old school Democrats to just go for the pork and the infrastructure? I doubt it. Really? That's interesting enough for the lefty. The squad plus the Freedom Caucus would kill it. When you look at the narrow margins over here. Yeah, I mean, look, the Democrats have a three or four vote margins. All they've got And it's just hard to thread the needle in this place these days. I just find it of I've learned to lower my expectations on what can be accomplished. You know, you look back when we were in the majority, and we had 200 roughly 45 members. We could almost never get to 18 because we couldn't get the Freedom Caucus on board. So when you come down to a situation where the margins are much narrower, you have to really, uh, lower your expectations. You have to find genuine bipartisanship. The only way to do it Goodnight. It does not exist in this place right now. Not with the leadership that we've got. You know, you've got Nancy Pelosi, who knows this is her last who robbed She is about to leave. And so she's and plus, she's being pushed hard by the left. And then in the Senate side, you know, humors, terrified avail, see challenging him and in the primary, so he's so far off to the left. I guarantee you is about it. Third of the Democrat members of the Senate or hiding behind cinema, and, uh and Joe Manchin, hoping they continue to fight because it could drag them down to I just think that There's no way you're going to get bipartisanship with that kind of dynamic. All right. Let's talk a little bit about your committee because I should have added 1/5 Book to your reading list is ranking minority member of House Armed Services Committee, which is to provide and maintain a.

"Nothing new there. They're coming back. Uh, I said that for 20 years with the Browns. It takes 20 years. Uh what, what the Republicans should do. Is if they don't get everything they want and and ask for a lot. They should just Don't go on the community. Don't don't do it. And have it, the Nancy Pelosi show say. Let her Be up there in the front and center. She'll screw it all up. She's she's the best thing for the Republican Party. All right, Jack. Here's the counter argument. No matter how bad the rules are, you always show up. Even when you know the referees are completely even if you're going down to play in the SEC and your big 10 team, and you know the referees are stacked and you know the game. 11 Hill is uphill, and they tilt the field when the ball changes hands. Even when it's big 10 against us, he C is still go and play the game. And the reason you play is because If you give me direction of the whole the whole shebang. I'll make it worse for you because it will be covered wall to wall. CNN, MSNBC. They will cover it wall to wall. I mean, NPR will carry the hearing. And so if you don't show up, you're not even to get 1/10 of the time You gotta show up. Even if it's going to be a wipe out in the massacre. You got a sharp and stand tall because if you don't You're allowing an uninterrupted narrative. That needs to be interrupted. Do I do I persuade you at all, Jack? I'm not sure really. But I'm just putting this out there. I mean it if the Republicans And look good doing this. Then they don't have to bother with the whole thing they can. They can They can go on offense by going on defense. No, you won't get covered. The only way to look good is for the senior counsel for the Republicans to ask almost every question and all the time asked the same question now how many people invaded the Congress? That's the first question. I think it's about 800. How many of them were ring lingers who have been charged with conspiracy? I think the number is 20, Maybe 25. I don't know, because it's not done yet. Although 2025 what were their plans, how many intended to do violence to the vice president? The speaker, other members? How many were on would there have been violence? Why didn't the Capitol police know about this? Whether the arm or the national Guard with help? There are questions that need to be answered in a public forum. But you don't get in the way of the narrative. You asked the question so that the American people can see you are a serious governing party, whereas Nancy Pelosi's clown car is Nancy Pelosi's clown car, just like it was in the impeachment twice. I hope they put Jerry Nadler on there because the Clowney ist of all clown cars, and they'll see why we didn't know we did not go. The Republicans in the Senate didn't go for the select committee. So it seems to me you show up and you be professional shop and be professional. Don't be a clown car. Don't shout, Don't yell the Dick Cheney and Dick Leon. That's what you do. And most of this depends not on the members but on the senior counsel selected and on the willingness of McCarthy to insist that the members of the committee yield their time to the senior counsel so that senior counsel can be Uh, you know, he can be the gear team. She can be. The gear team should be me. I'm available. They just have to start after 9 30. I'll work till midnight, but they can't start during my show. My one rule don't.

"The Beltway, thanking Colonel Kurtz Lake here for sitting in for me yesterday. Dwayne's missing. I don't know what happened. They probably went on a bender. But they had a great show yesterday. I appreciate it first Summer day off and 2.5 years, so I enjoyed that getting ready for a two week break at the end of July beginning of August. There's in Maine this weekend. With the fetching Mr Hewitt's family had a great time visiting should Big Island. The Dolphin restaurant in a different Part of the Casco Bay waterfront, which is vast and endless. Did manage to do a complete 3 60 on entering into a dengue from a morning but that was okay. It was rubber, so I bounced and it was really elegantly executed. In Reminding me of Patrick O'Brian's admonition from Steve Matron. One hand for the boat, Doctor. One hand for the boat. I did not follow that rule, but I'm fine. Bloodied but unbowed back in the C. I want to hear from you about Nancy Pelosi's Select committee. 1 805 21234. You see, it's 13 members. She has not yet said that Peter McCarthy. Gets to make his appointments. The Republican appointment. He only gets five out of the 13. Instead of a 76 split. That would reflect a nonpartisan approach to the issue at hand. What happened on January six? I think we already know what happened. 800 people broke the law in an insurrection aimed at a coup and the murder of the vice president and the speaker and others by a tiny handful of those 800. Is a dark day in American history shouldn't deny it. The prosecution of all those responsible going forward. They might look at How broad was the conspiracy? Where did they draw their influence from? But mostly, I think they want to get the numbers down in motivation following the Conviction or please of those who were responsible for the innocent verdicts of those who are not. And the conspiracy is the most interesting part and who had the weapons and what were their intent is interesting. But you're not going to get there with a partisan hack job, and this is a partisan act job. It's 8 to 5 that is not reflective of the of the Congress, which is 50 50. The House of Representatives is the narrowest margin in my lifetime. Five members can go from Democrat the Republican side and Pelosi loses her gavel and she's going to lose her gavel in a year and a half. Less actually now, and I just believe it is a complete and utter charade. So indeed, in the Washington Post story this morning. Bye, Felisha son, Mez. It suggests that Nancy Pelosi may may appoint from one of her eight Republican Adam Kinzinger or Liz Cheney, In other words, to let's Change is a friend of mine. She had been on this show many, many times, including very recently and she's very smart member. She represents a decidedly minority point of view within the Republican Party. It would be an attempt, of course to sow discord in the Republican Party. And I don't think Liz Cheney would accept Adam Kinzinger Mike Doomed in the house with Cheney isn't but I do believe it's just obviously a political move. If she does that, if she doesn't and put Democrats on, it's an obviously political. It's just politicized from the start. And the historical comparison is in the Iran Contra Select Committee. The Iran Contra Select Committee. Was the leading Republican. The ranking member was then whip Dick Cheney. Serious and sober. Dick Cheney, who appointed Extraordinary talented, though unknown lawyer Dick Leon, now a federal judge, now a senior status, federal judge, has been a remarkably Competent federal judge. And they did a great investigation for reading about it. I suggest you read Peggy Noonan's what I saw at the Revolution. So if Speaker Pelosi was interested in what happened, what do we worry about? What do we need to know? That explores some of the aspects not otherwise available from the public record of the prosecution's She would make it 76. Should give 55% of the budget. The Democrats 45% of the budget to the Republicans subpoena power to each and allow complete control over their staffs. And, yes, I'm happy to be the senior counsel to dislike committee. Invited. They don't start until 9 30 every day. I gotta do my show. But as it is, it's a clown car. It's a complete Political hack job and it will get no respect and will be the source of endless braying in the media. And will be round the clock on some cable channels, and they'll cover it breathlessly and no one will care. Because it will be she'll try and stretch it out. Come in some time before she gets pasted in the 2022 election. The American people are sick of the Democrats already. They're sick of the spending the Biden inflation. They're sick of the double cross on the infrastructure. They're sick of it all already. They really don't like the impeachment of Iran. They really don't like the built down in the American defense establishment. When China is building up in Russia continues to depression. They don't like the appeasement towards Russia, allowing them to build North Stream two. They don't like any of that stuff. And so Republicans going to win in 2022, the house will be back in Republican control. And maybe the Senate don't know the map isn't particularly good for Senator, I tell you the truth, Never Never spinning, but I think they'll get the house back easily. So it's Nancy Pelosi, the only person to have ever lost the house twice last hurrah. Obviously, and it's going to be a nakedly partisan, not very smart. Blunderbuss approach as has been her speakership. If I were later McCarthy and he hasn't asked me I would appoint Um, very obstreperous ranking minority member. And then I would have four very quiet, competent veterans of the House caucus, and I would hire one very good lead counsel and give them Require that Other members, delegate That committee. Staff resources so they can have the lawyers they need in the investigators they need. To make sure that every aspect of this is covered. That's how I would play it. Leader McCarthy is a friend, but he hadn't asked me. I wish he did better advice and they'll get Jack in Detroit. What do you think, Jack? 1 805 2. Oh 1234. Good morning, Jack. Sorry about the lions. It's a terrible year to be Alliance fan..

"Where the select committee vote stands and the appointment procedures for the five Republicans. It appeared from the reporting that Nancy Pelosi is not guaranteed leader McCarthy the right to appoint the five Right, so it doesn't look like she granted him outright. Authorities. Um But I suspect that she'll end up allowing him to do so. I think what's interesting is that they are going to proceed with this. And then I think it's going to be a matter of how much authority and how much resources the committee is invested in. Sometimes he select committees can do quite a bit of work. Um and and reach conclusions and figure things out. Other times they cannot. I'm sort of less. Worried about the appointments. And both sides ended. Republicans are going to get something. I think the question is whether it's a real fact finding committee or whether It's just the committee for hearings were both sides end up arguing Their points of view Now, David. My take on it is it's a fraud because it's 85, not 67. Secondly, it's a fraud because Pelosi is is pretending to keep authority over it, as opposed to granting it to the leader. Third. There is no provision for selection of senior counsel to the committee and subordinate staff and investigatory independent operations. I'm just thinking Iran chain Iran Contra when Dick Cheney was the ranking, and Dick Leon was the senior counsel. It was effective to the day it was the Ollie North hearings that got done. This is a charade, and it's very insecure Speaker by the way, who knows that she's going to lose the majority, so she's trying desperately? To swing for the fences with a set up job, and it just it uses set up job. Yeah. Look, I mean, I think that I think the voters will judge the committee on its work product. So if if As you detail. This is how it's going to be set up. And that's how the work product is going to unfold. Then it's not going to be effective and in the broader issue is that the country is going to lose an opportunity. To have an independent accounting of what happened. On January sick and why it happened, And I think that is the larger issue now, if if, in fact McCarthy the leader, determined to go ahead my advice given over the radio earlier Is your point. No show ponies. You put up all the people who are most serious and experience and they do not ask questions they defer to their lead counsel..

"Summer day off in 2.5 years and the first actual vacation day not linked to Christmas. In a similar period of time. My thanks to Kurt Schlichter for sitting in for me tomorrow yesterday Monday, and I will look forward to studios still standing, so that's a wonderful thing. I will look forward to having curtain had Morrissey and Mark Davis filling in for me. On the end of July, and the beginning of August is a real vacation back in fight a great time in Maine. I have only been two main a couple of times in my life and fetching Mrs. Here. It's family lives up there. So off we went to shop, Big Island and the Dolphin and downtown Portland, which by the way is remarkable. And to my w g A n listening audience on 5 60 98.5 you folks are wonderful. Everywhere I went, people listen to W g A n The Hewitt show is a thing in Maine. And I appreciate that greatly. Democrats and Republicans alike liberals and conservatives. They all love a good conversation. So to the manners, your hospitality is wonderful. You are open for business. Than most of yesterday. Visiting sea bag offices fetching Mrs Hewitt and I made a modest investment and that years ago and and now it's a thriving hallmark of Maine with Just a remarkable team. Of managers and makers and creatives and Social media people and their operations director Dylan was a remarkable young man took us all through their Operation center and main is booming. Main is open. Maine has got almost a traffic jam. That's right. Almost a traffic jam in Portland headed north and I suspect Since the season really begins on July 4th, But you got to get used to boating. It's a little bit dangerous. The famous Patrick O'Brien novels always advised even matter in the spy and doctor. Will keep one hand for the boat. I missed that rule. I did a full, however, in honor the Olympics advancing upon us. I did a full somersault into a dinging 103 160 degree somersault into a dinghy. From the data there. Doc of a boat. It was moored. Had emerged only bruised, but nothing broken and elegantly executed by my dad. I'm sure I intended to do it. The poor teenager read. If you're listening, I'm I'm still fine. He turned white as a ghost and thought he'd killed me. But that's fine. It was, you know. Rough seas, but I am not really rough coordination had a wonderful time. And when I come back, I say Just not good news. Not good news, anywhere. Uh, The delta variant of the Covid 19 surging across unvaccinated Africa now And that was inevitable. Those who will surge across the world it will come to the United States. It's already heat will double every week or so among the unvaccinated. We have 180 million vaccinated in the United States, which means we've got 150 million weren't vaccinated. The 150 million are going to get the delta variant. Get vaccinated. Please. I know mass or anywhere in America except in airports and on airplanes and respect that role, or you will be escorted off the airplane. And I want to thank everyone who's out there working every day. And if you're not infected, and you run into another if you're not in vaccinated, you run to another person Who's In fact that you're going to get it. So don't don't roll those dice Those. There's no need to play that game. There's no return on it that you can only break even which means that you have a mild case. But now I met some other people who had other than my own cases. And if you weren't listening last weekend to our last week to Leland Venters from news nation one this nation now Excuse me. Leland 38 years old, Terrific shape. Foreign correspondent now anchor for news Nation now. Five days in the hospital. I know people who died. I know people have been down for two or three weeks. I've known people had a cold. But why roll the dice? Don't get the vaccination. Sanofi in the Wall Street Journal announces today they're going big into M RNA messenger RNA vaccines This one has worked so well so effectively. They're pouring 477 million into M R N a research Hoping to perfect vaccines among the entire coronavirus family. You know, we have long waited for the search for the common cold. Many people forget that because of course. Common cold has not been around much in the last year and a half since we haven't been out and about Transferring it from one to another as much as possible, and especially through the very the vectors that are preschools. And people forget how miserable you can be More power to Sanofi Biggest story of the day Speaker Pelosi has introduced a joke. Going to have a quote Select committee. Made up of 13 members. Five of whom will be Republicans that leader McCarthy may be allowed to appoint Now I ask you If it was really a threat to democracy. If it was really something that needed this big, big significant investigation, Wouldn't you make it 87 or 76? 50 50 country 85 really 85. She's so not confident of our own people. She cannot give herself a to vote margin. And what you give the minority Equal rights, the higher their staff. And when you set up the rules that the committee would I mean, if you were serious about like the 9 11 Commission 50 50 That was George W. Bush, not Nancy port lists of political exercise intended for political result they're gonna get hammer the Democrats going to get hammered because of terrible inflation, and because of incoherent policy and wasting money, they're going to get hammered. Appeasement of Iran. They're going to get hammered in 2022. Redistricting is going to play into that as well as gerrymandering. Democrats will gerrymander when they care can in, like Illinois and Massachusetts, and they'll get screwed in other places like Florida and Texas. But along with the Usual current of the first midterm of a new president. They're going to get hammered. So leader McCarthy will become speaker. So this is a hail Mary pass to try and come up with something. Some people say leader McCarthy shouldn't appoint five. I think he should. Hope your point. Uh, Very Old but smart, lead Republican. I hope the bold but smart lead Republican hires a terrific senior counsel. I volunteer. I'm available. If they'll just start the hearing. After nine o'clock I'll work all day. I'll do my show and come over. Be there by 9 30. No, it don't go to work in Congress until 9 30 anyway. And be happy to do what Dick Leon, now a federal judge, but the senior counsel to Dick Cheney on Iran Contra did. Which is quietly make sure the real story is tell. Do you remember anything about Iran Contra other than Ollie North? If you remember that No because of Dick Cheney and Dick Leon? And so you have to do is methodical. Get the truth. Truth is 800 people invaded the capital. Um, a few dozen were bent on a coup on an insurrection on murder. They need to go to jail. They are going to jail. They need to be prosecuted. They are being prosecuted. Those who broke the law need to be punished. A great deal of distinction has to be made between those who peacefully demonstrated because they were upset. About improvisation in the election of 2020. You don't have to believe in the big lie. I don't. There is no big lie, but I do think it's worth an investigation to bet it's not fair to, but it's a hack job. Hack speaker in defense. She's going to be the only speaker in history to have lost the majority twice. And chief desperate and it shows in an 85 makeup. Some, You know the politico headline Political As always, says, House Chippy bristles. No, it doesn't talk to staff already. They don't bristle. I just know it's a setup job. So what to do about a set up job? Follow the Cheney example. Dick Cheney, senior member ranking member on the House Select Committee on Iran Contra. Get your dick Leon. I'm available. Find another one. That there patiently. Good lawyering will matter here. Good morning. Just got to ask the right question. How many people are being prosecuted? Director where a How many people.
