A highlight from OUTCAST by Gloria Giorno
"Seek and Destroy that has been the theme of discussions of truth now for well I'm in my seventh season here and we started the show on Wynwood radio in Miami 2016 is when I agreed to do the show with them aired the first episode January of 2017 this is Ian Trottier here and today we are going to start talking if you are not familiar with the name Charlotte Iserbit she passed away about a year and a half ago she's a former advisor to the Department of Education under Ronald Reagan her story is very interesting and captivating because she talks about having received a list of these Skull and Bones members via mail that was sent to her father who was a Skull and Bones member at Yale and Anthony Sutton was hot on that trail so two names that you should familiarize yourself with and that is Charlotte Charlotte's work and that is the deliberate dumbing down of America she talks about the invasion of the American education system and that having been formalized under Jimmy Carter back in 1979 Department of Education so she talks about that through her book and then also what I was talking about was Anthony Sutton calling her being hot basically on the trail of dissecting the corruption that is it's really manipulation because Ella Hugh Yale was a major stockholder a main president of the British East Indies trading company that is a Rothschild controlled trading company and the Rothschild funded the American Revolution so I may be off here ladies and gentlemen but if you look at the flag that was flown above the John Paul Jones excuse me the USS Alfred commandeered by John Paul Jones on the Delaware that basically started the American Revolution that flag is basically identical to the British East Indies company flag and then that you trace that and you go back to Cambridge Massachusetts and something called the flag committee which is Continental Congress approved Washington Franklin adopted what became the first flag of the United what became known as the United States and that was the US Grand Union flag which as being designed by Betsy Ross that is the US Grand Union flag which is identical to the British East Indies company flag because that is where the financing came to fund Washington's army and then you ask well wait a second that's English and well yeah this it is English but it's not English because London the city of London is not technically part of England it is its own banking it's sovereign nation a Roman banking colony still in existence these are all facts and you can cross -check them but anyway so seek and destroy corruption that is how I that is that is how I theme my discussions my conversations my talks it's what I do in Trottier with discussions truth today we're gonna talk about the Department of Education rather the state of the education system in the United States so quickly before we bring the guests on we'll be we'll be talking to Gloria Giorno and her son Stevie and getting their view as conservatives what it's been like for Stevie to go through I think it's Belmont University as a conservative so without further ado thanks for tuning in for the podcast on and we're bringing on Gloria and Stevie right now calling Laurie and Stevie this is Ian Trottier for Discussions of Truth Gloria hi nice to meet meet you and welcome to Discussions of Truth I've looked at some of the work that you're you've excellent hi Stevie so thanks for for joining the the the show and please give listeners an introduction to who you are Gloria you can start tell listeners who you are what you what you do and then and then Stevie you can do the same please I try to destroy a young conservative and I also did a nonprofit the name of it is United Women Foundation what we do is mentor employ aid and young conservative women who are in Stevie's situation and we also give out scholarships to conservatives who are not in need of a scholarship but who are conservatives and who are promoting the conservative agenda in their lives thank you Gloria and that's United Women Foundation calm I'll go ahead and put a link to that in the episode Stevie go ahead and introduce yourself for us please well thank you very much for having us on my name is Stevie Giorno and I serve as the chairman of the Tennessee Young Republicans and I am the former student body president at Belmont University where I was attacked by the radical left for being proud of my country and being proud to be an American on the 4th of July in 2020 during the as a mother for protecting your your family and your country I've looked at the website I've looked a little bit about both of you and what's interesting is you have been you've come my way and your stories come my way through a contact there in Florida and your Stevie your story is daughter went through something very similar and in her university classes but Stevie go ahead and tell us a little bit about about what you experienced you were the student body president at Belmont University yet you were attacked for your political views isn't that right picture of myself in front of the White House and I captioned it that I was proud to be an American and I thanked those who had sacrificed and served so that we may have the freedoms and liberties that our forefathers intended for us and within 24 hours my fraternity was blackmailing me threatening to label me a racist and remove me from the fraternity there were hundreds of comments on my Instagram post and there were hundreds of signatures on a change .org petition that sought to remove me as the duly elected student body president even though I was elected unanimously with almost 99 98 % of the vote and so it was really bad that students friends of mine my fraternity brothers wanted to attack me because I was proud to be from this country you know my grandparents escaped from communism in Yugoslavia and my mother lived there for a year so I've heard the first -hand horrors of what happens in a communist country and I fear that our country is headed that way every single day. Now what's interesting is one of the articles that I that I went through briefly was is written by Campus Reform it's published on an online newsletter called Campus Reform and one of the stories that they have today actually talks about glorifying Che you Guevara know this is a this is a socialist figure that that helped with the with the cubist Cuban communist revolution and Fidel Castro you're you're talking about your family having come from communist Yugoslavia are you seeing are you seeing Stevie in in in in your experience on on campus now I don't know what you're doing now maybe you graduated you can bring us up to date with where you at right now but are you seeing some of these same the same signs that that perhaps your mother or your grandparents were talking about that were that were red flags for for communism growing within the country are you seeing that experiencing that I do and I think unfortunately it is getting worse specifically at Belmont University they refused the school is refusing to allow a turning point USA chapter on campus I think it it's it's it's awful it's an infringement on our First Amendment right to freedom of speech and freedom of belief to protest to assemble and so it's really unfortunate what's going on with with colleges and universities I graduated in the spring of 2021 but I have heard of the horror stories happening at private Christian schools so -called Christian schools happening across the country and until students and parents and grandparents begin to see what is happening you know the first step to solving a problem is acknowledging it exists and it's there and it's not going to get better until enough conservative students and parents realize that they need to stop funding the indoctrination machines of universities and change course well it's very brave of you to say that glory I want want to get your your view and and and I want to first first say this I opened this show up before I brought you on with talking about somebody named Charlotte Iserbyt and I'm happy to send you her link to her book it's called the deliberate dumbing down of America what she did was she started dissecting what was happening under the Reagan administration with the attack on the indoctrination that we're seeing fruits of today a few decades later but Gloria did you did you ever expect or suspect that something like this might happen to your son I I he gets into college were there any anything anything happening up to that time where he's now the student body president of Belmont University anything before that that you were that you questioned well you know hey they he might he might need to defend himself or was this a complete surprise to you it was a complete surprise there was absolutely nothing the handbook the literature the online documentation about Belmont University everything fit a conservative Christian agenda there was nothing I mean personally I think it's a bait and switch but there was absolutely nothing I was friends with some of the professors who are conservatives at Belmont or who were conservatives at Belmont and we had spoken for two years before Stevie made the decision to go there and no there was not any kind of indication that anything like this would happen now we would never allowed our son to want to go to a school where he would have been threatened for his beliefs I mean he had been working for Republican candidates since he was 17 years old so it was out in the open it's on his LinkedIn it's public so no I mean we we were told on every tour we were told at every meeting that this was a fully free campus there would be no harassment it was Christian it was conservative and I read the handbook and Stevie followed all the guidelines when these things did start to occur he did follow all the guidelines he followed all the rules he turned everything into administration and they did nothing absolutely nothing and Stevie yeah go ahead to this day they have not responded in any way shape or form nothing and this has been three years now so you have not gotten a formal response from the school administration Stevie you're simply in DC taking a photograph outside the White House expressing your gratitude for the country and the values that it stands for did you ever suspect this type of backlash coming from the because he knew that if he spoke out against them that they would send him to a camp where he'd never be heard from again and really that whole year of 2020 was either you agree with everything we're saying you endorse the BLM organization but we're gonna do everything we can to destroy you and in fact because Tennessee is a single -party consent state that means you can record conversations with only one person knowing I did record those conversations with my fraternity which my mom put into her book and in those conversations my fellow friends my fraternity brothers say if you do not apologize for your post if you do not endorse this group we're gonna do whatever it takes to destroy you and your career and your reputation so it's a more mild form of what happens in communist countries but because these students were not held accountable it is only going to get worse and worse and it did I mean there was one instance where a female student who worked at a fast -food restaurant I would go to for my breakfast in the mornings she admitted in the official College Democrat group text that she was putting quote gross stuff in my drinks every single day because I was a an awful conservative who loved this country and one endorsed the BLM organization and the school guess what the school did when I turned her in what did they do they accepted her into Belmont law school you gotta be kidding me I'm serious 100 % she was rewarded for attacking a political opponent and I think that's dangerous as we see what's going on with President Trump he is being attacked because he's leading in the polls and it's truly unfortunate that we're becoming a banana republic yeah did the did she make you sick with whatever she put in the drinks and we couldn't even get the Nashville police who are unfortunately very short staff due to the liberal City Council and the liberal mayor at the time unfortunately they were they were unable to investigate it because I was perfectly fine thankfully but they said since there was no lasting issues that they refused to investigate and then the school accepted this girl into law school with full knowledge of everything she had done struck so it it shows the systemic problem we're having and imagine if this is happening in a conservative Christian private university in Nashville Tennessee one of the most conservative states imagine what's going on in all 49 other states we don't have the ability to record conversations and to take screenshots of texts and emails and and have such transparency I mean it's terrifying to think what's happening in these other colleges yeah very well said Stevie tell us about that book and tell us about how tell us about how it's been received my husband and I we want to speak out on this we want people to know I need parents and grandparents to know what their children and yes very teen but there still are children what they face and what they are up against when they go away to school we need for parents to fight back we need for parents to take a stand if 40 % of students stopped attending their respective universities you know that the agenda at universities with administration would change so we as conservatives we have that title of being silent majority because usually we are silent well Stevie and I wanted to change that hence the book I use I feel that the book is an educational tool for parents learn from what happened to my son learn from the experience that we've had we went to this university many times it's not far from our home we investigated it we knew people who worked there who taught there and never once did we feel that it was going to be a threat to our son and look what happened so whatever you're seeing I dread to think what's going on at public schools I just dread but I want parents to learn learn read the book you'll see everything is documented in there as my son said fortunately we're able to record and we're able to use everything for information but we need for parents to be more active in their students and their children's educations even when they are at college because they are all indoctrination facilities I did live in a communist country I went to first grade in Zagreb which was then Yugoslavia in 1972 and I can tell you that on my way to school my walk to school every morning I had 1 ,000 US dollars in my backpack I knew if civil unrest broke out at the age of six I knew how to get out of Yugoslavia get into a cab that was waiting for me at the end of the hill and that cab driver would take me to the border of Yugoslavia in Italy where one of my aunts would meet me and my parents would come when they were able I also knew the police officer on the corner he wasn't there for me he wasn't there to make sure that I'd be safe or anybody else he was definitely there to protect the communist regime and Josip Tito who was the dictator at the time and the parallels that I saw with what I experienced living in a communist country and what my son endured at Belmont University it's there if it's clear as day and I want to enlighten everyone who wants to hear from me I want all parents to know this is happening in our country now too we are being silenced and shut down the title of the book folks is outcast how the radical left tried to destroy a young conservative and that is Stevie so Stevie was this a the attack on you was this coming from the BLM movement at Belmont University or in Nashville have you identified the nucleus of where this attack came from okay so let me ask you a broader question we saw during the Trump Tifa uprisings mainly Seattle Portland but obviously across the country Chicago New York but that coincided with this this COVID -19 virus outbreak as a as a university student you've now graduated but Stevie were you were you drawing any parallels to either of these things happening during the Trump administration that seemingly linked to a communist revolt within the country does that making sense were you able to draw any connect any dots Stevie we know from history that it usually doesn't work that way and the government's gonna keep taking more and more of our rights and when you couple that with what is happening what did happen in 2020 with with the riots and people getting away with committing crimes to where if you and I or anyone else who was a conservative did burn down a courthouse like they did in Nashville or protest and kill innocent people in the streets we would go to jail however because they were advancing a political movement that the liberal district attorneys in big cities supported they were let go and they were not punished like they should have been like we would have been so the hypocrisy is terrible I think it does parallel communism to where you know if you remember the black shirts Mussolini's black shirts taking control of the Italian government because they were the advancing political agenda and movement that the powers that be wanted them to they were able to harass and intimidate people into supporting them and I fear that our country is going that way and we need people to stand up now if we're ever hoping to take back our country and get it back on the right track and under control Gloria the book is recently published it looks like it was just published last month and you've got us forward by Sam Sorbo how's the reception of the book been so far what are people saying who have you spoke to about it how is it being received lot Gloria a of media outlets that are reaching out to us I'm being asked to speak almost on a daily basis different organizations different groups Stevie and I have traveled to a lot of different states throughout the country and we will continue to be touring and we are I have started a conversation and parents are now extending that conversation with their friends and that is the goal we need to start with one person talking to another and now the growth has been exponential it's incredible the book is selling very well it's available on Amazon and wherever books are sold but from what I have witnessed and the calls I am getting yes it is and I mean if we as conservatives don't speak up we're gonna be done this is it and if America Falls there is nowhere else to go and our children are being indoctrinated I don't care what level of schooling it's that they're being indoctrinated on every single level and if parents do not set a strong foundation in the household when the child is born and continue that throughout a child's life when they go to college always we will not be America any longer so the book is being well received I do have parents who have reached out to me and who have asked me questions likewise I do have some haters but that's how I know I'm making a difference because the hate is there as well yeah absolutely well said it's like when you went once you're censored you know that you're putting up the correct information on the online right Stevie are you concentrating on any particular campuses as you tour the country you point of a Christian organization and unfortunately they they canceled the meeting that was going to happen at Belmont and so been trying to help the students out there at Belmont but really I think the key thing is getting in front of as many young people as possible who are conservative and letting them know that they're not alone that the hardships they're going through have happened before and they're gonna happen again and we've got to stand up tall for what we believe in and we can't be scared of people saying mean things about us or what people put on social media or what they may say to us we've got to stand up for what we believe in if there's any chance of saving our country thank you very much let me ask you this question Gloria as we as we wind down and then I want to give each of you an opportunity to leave listeners with some final words and thoughts but Gloria as somebody who's lived in a communist country and it sounded like you did at least one year schooling their first grade what's happening right now to the border of your country what's happening down there they believe they have freedom and to an extent they do and I equate it to when I speak I speak to a lot of young people because young people are what United Women Foundation is mostly about and so when I speak I they look at me very oddly when I tell my story but what I have found that works very well is I bring up a lion at a zoo and he's in a zoo he's caged his needs are met he has food he has shelter he has water he has medical attention and it's all for free but he is still in that cage but he is able to roam in that cage correct and then we have the next picture a lion picture lion in Wyoming in Montana anywhere in this country roaming freely that lion bends for himself he finds his own food he finds his own shelter he finds his own water he takes care of himself that lion is independent to me that is the difference that is the bottom line that is the difference between communism and America that is the difference between our constitution is that lion that is roaming free throughout this country and that's what we are right now so that is something that I think resonates with young people and I I believe that putting it in a perspective of a picture like that they are beginning to understand a little bit I hope at least I mean I don't know right now what I'm seeing is a lot of people have said we cannot have an opinion because we have not experienced it which truly breaks my heart my family in Croatia thinks that they are free in effect my family basically is a caged lion yeah incredible and and let me review what is happening right now at the southern border in in the U .S.
Fresh update on "district attorney" discussed on Stephanie Miller
"You Thank You blue eyes so let's I I don't I first have to get your take on that I don't even what else to call it but yesterday the house impeachment I mean even when you know in right right -wing radio they're saying oh my god they flipped the tables and made this an impeachment of Donald Trump that's what an unmitigated disaster it was I open the show saying isn't that the law 101 you don't ask a question you don't know the to Republicans had witnesses that basically said the opposite of what they're trying to prove am I wrong yeah Republicans can't govern they can't impeach they can't a pass budget they can't keep the federal government open they're about to drive people into more desperate circumstances because they're gonna stop getting paychecks you you know they're imploding they're imploding before our eyes and I look forward to see what rises up from the ashes of the Republican Party I hope it's people with principle who you know they have conservative ideas and priorities but they really give a damn about our Constitution and about governing so you know let's hope that that's we what see moving forward I mean you you just did sexy liberal DC with us with Jamie Raskin and mean I I was joking about was like the Harlem Globetrotters and Republicans are like the Washington Generals in a law right I mean it just I mean it was they were so outmatched it was just embarrassing it is embarrassing and you know early on I went when the Republicans the took house I was saying you know boy I really don't want them to hold hearings because it's going to be a clown show now I want them to hold hearings because they are exposing themselves to the American people for you know the incompetent legislators they are so you know what the more Republican hearings the better at this point and I thought Trey Gowdy was sweaty and awful folder into Benghazi here is but wow he looks like I don't know who's who's a really Perry Mason somebody it's okay listen gonna it's gonna be a very good it was a very bad awful week for Donald Trump you as tweeted Donald Trump loses in New York New York Court again his civil fraud trial on remaining counts to begin on Monday that would be tomorrow and you said because hashtag justice matters so that's why I love the the just headline this morning Trump's fraud defense is so bad it's defying the very laws of physics according to one analyst so Donald Trump is is literally the biggest loser I don't mean that figuratively I mean whether it's civil cases or criminal motions that his attorneys have been filing he loses and he loses and he loses in spectacular from the Eugene Carroll verdict to the civil case in New York that you know it really is staggering what Judge Engeron found about the long -term chronic you know systemic fraud that is Donald Trump his adult children his chief financial officer and the Trump org and his companies anytime a judge orders that your LLC's your businesses shall be dissolved yeah it doesn't get any more dramatic than that we are now seeing the end of Donald Trump the businessman not that he was ever a businessman he's always been a con man but we are seeing the end of Donald Trump the man oh I'm sorry I didn't mean to laugh Adam I'm laughing really hard at him um yeah the appeals court rejected his request to delay the civil trial in the wake of fraud ruling that threatens as you just say his entire empire but you know I saved one story from because we've had this ongoing conversation findings in Trump fraud trial reignite question about why Bill Barr's DOJ dropped the case well I think we know why because Bill is Barr the one that weaponized the Department of Justice to you know protect Donald Trump and his friends and go after his enemies but my other question would be what about Merrick Garland why why did he not I mean this case I even to to a layperson Glenn we look at this case and go this is just overwhelming evidence of fraud talk to because the rich the powerful the influential the connected have gotten away a with far too much for far too long why did Cy Vance the district attorney in Manhattan let Donald Trump run roughshod over the people of New York the taxpayers of New for York decades why well because it is the ruling class it is the privileged class it is the donor class that are permitted to get away with I'm year after year steal a purse shoplift a couple of sticks of deodorant from a CVS you're going right to writers maybe even pre -trial and we have to fix this I mean we we see it right we have to fix it if we are serious about the prospect of justice equal for all yeah what I mean I again we're just speculating but why did Merrick Garland and I mean it just I feel like we also kind of play by these you know the the different rules I I keep saying trying to win the Lady Bing award in hockey I was sporting the sports for a minute but um but again yeah you get why Bill Barr because Bill Barr did anything Trump asked him to right up you and know until the the coup but what you know why did Merrick Garland let let this go I don't understand why Merrick Garland has seemed seems to have let everything go that Donald Trump did that is not currently being prosecuted by Jack Smith because Steph we know Donald Trump bribed and extorted President Zelensky using congressional funds for a political dirty favor we know Donald Trump committed as many as ten felony obstruction that Bob Mueller said he could be indicted for the day he left office Merrick Garland he's left all of those crimes unaddressed and what that does Steph is it gives permission it actually puts DOJ's stamp of approval on the next aspiring dictator committing those same crimes all over again and I will never understand why we are not sort of stepping up and meeting the urgency of the moment so he also tweeted Judge Chuck and denies Trump's motion seeking her removal from presiding over Trump's federal prosecution in DC because hashtag justice matters but also know the second tier on that you said given Trump's disturbingly dangerous threat against General Milley it's time for restrictions on Trump's speech and posts of course given that he continues to violate conditions of his release he should also be detained pending and trial I think it's never gotten more serious than now what is the time frame for her making some sort of ruling and what do you think she's going to do yes so Donald Trump's lawyers just filed their opposition to Jack Smith's request to put some narrowly tailored restrictions on Donald Trump's speech and I think Jack Smith's team has an opportunity to respond with reply a brief in the coming days and then I think you're going to get a pretty prompt ruling from Judge Chutkin she may even set it for a brief oral argument which I'm hoping she does I'll be in court to watch it if she does then and I predict she's going to impose some limitations on Donald Trump's speech and post but even more fundamentally as you just read there Donald Trump is already in violation of his conditions of pretrial release because he said he thinks the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Milley should be executed now he tried to dress it up a little bit by saying when somebody committed in years gone by they would be executed well step anybody who wants to open the big ugly blue book of federal laws the United States Code and look at what the punishment today for treason is it is still the death penalty so there's no mistaking Donald Trump Milley committed treason death is an authorized punishment one plus one equals two Donald Trump should should be detained pending trial so we put a stop to his dangerousness

The 22nd anniversary of the 9 -11 terror attacks is tomorrow, with many ceremonies planned around the country. Some family members who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001, are still left searching for answers over two decades later. Brett Eagleson's father was killed in the World Trade Center and doesn't feel victims' family members have all the details of who was responsible for the attacks. It's been 22 years and it's shameful that we have yet to have an administration or a president that has had the courage to hold the kingdom of Saudi Arabia accountable for what they did. Saudi Arabia denies involvement in 9 -11. Meanwhile, family members are also frustrated that the confessed mastermind of the 2001 terror attacks and four other defendants have not yet had a trial. Vice President Kamala Harris says the attacks on her by GOP presidential candidates are nothing new. Speaking on CBS's Face the Nation, Harris responded to concerns of President Biden's age and claims that she would be worse than Biden. The vice president said she's listened to attacks against her throughout her career, going back to her days as a district attorney in San Francisco. Harris said Biden would be fine to serve a full second term as president, but added she's prepared to step in if necessary. Pennsylvania State Police are expanding their search for an escaped killer after a new sighting of a woman was reported.

those people would have their training stop that's about two thousand six hundred people in total according to transportation secretary pete budajaj out of about thirteen thousand fully certified air traffic controllers so it's a significant amount but as we've seen very small numbers of air traffic controllers if they can't work for whatever reason can really mess with the system and so we'll see

John Lauro to Judge Chutkan: 'A Political Persecution' Against Trump
"Mr. Laro told Judge Truncan that he was planning to challenge each of the three conspiracy counts in the indictment brought against Mr. Trump earlier this month by the Office of Special Counsel. Those counts accused Mr. Trump of plotting to defraud the United States, to disrupt the certification of the election, and so forth and so on. Laro said, in our view, this is a political prosecution. Still, the issue surrounding the schedule of the trial took center stage at the 90 minute hearing which Mr. Smith attended. Oh, the great Mr. Smith attended. Oh, wow. Prosecutors working for Mr. Smith have said in papers court that the government could take four to six weeks to present its case to the judge, with Mr. Trump's lawyers demanding a roughly similar amount of time. That timetable would push the trial well past March 25, the date that New York Justice, Juan Merchant, another radical Democrat, has set for the Manhattan trial and could edge close or even beyond the May 20 date set for Mr. Trump's federal trial in Florida. You see what I mean about her jumping the line? Truncan, she wants to be first. It's strategy if you're a partisan hack judge, which she is, which I'll get to in a minute. Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan district attorney, signaled recently he'd be open to seeing the trial date for the case moved, provided Merchant agreed. Lucien Chalfin, a spokesman for the New York court system, has said Justice Merchant and Judge

Fresh update on "district attorney" discussed on DIVORCING PATRIARCHY
"Her name is Miss Fanny Lou Hamer. I don't know about you, but I've been to the Mississippi Delta once. Mea culpa for the cliche, but I did meet some of the kindest strangers I've ever met there. If you're molded from the city suburbs like I am, the Delta will shock your sensibilities. 200 miles long, 87 miles across at its widest point and encompassing approximately 4,415,000 as you stand you are no more special than an average stock of corn. The flatland, strong enough to tango with tornadoes, will effortlessly swallow you up if you dare it to. Yet the bodies of African-American children, men, and women were forced to stretch across the Delta to domesticate the land for the profit and riches of the patriarchy. First through human exploitation of slavery and then through the economically exploitative system of sharecropping. Now sharecropping has and is practiced globally in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. In the United States after the Civil War sharecropping seceded slavery as a system of agricultural labor where landlords would contract with tenant farmers to lease a portion of land in exchange for a value of the crops. Under this system the tenant farmer would work the land and receive a share of the value of the crop less charges for seed, tools, tenancy, and food. The system was rife with price manipulations which indebted many sharecropper tenants from harvest to harvest. These landlords were largely the same individuals who just months and years before were the slave holders of the now tenants who were just months and years before slaves. After plantation owners were forced to sever their stronghold of human exploitation through the Civil War. It's not a difficult logic leap to understand that the new system with the same old players in the same old place wasn't going to produce a different outcome other than human exploitation. The sharecroppers were living under poor working conditions that kept them in a poverty trap. It was a rigged system but what other choice existed in the South following the Civil War? To live, to eat. Where was a Black person supposed to go? How were they supposed to survive? As compelling testimony to how life can force the hand of change in the inertia of oppression. A once child laborer on a sharecropping plantation in the Delta at the tender age of 45 became a catalyst to end the sharecropping industry's 62-year reign. Her name was Fannie Lou Hamer. She was a force for social change. All she wanted was freedom. All she wanted was to be a first-class citizen amongst equal citizenry. The best place to begin to know Ms. Fannie might be at the crescendo of her life following an 18-year period of sharecropping on a cotton plantation near Ruleville, Mississippi. In this season of her life she built a serious career as a voting rights, women's rights, civil rights activist, and community organizer during the violent era of Jim Crow which were racial segregation laws and formal and informal policies. Everyday life for Blacks in Mississippi was a sentence and perpetuity of embodied hardship and then the most extraordinary thing happened. The intention of disruption from community organizers introduced Ms. Fannie to the promise of change through democratic participation of voting. She said, they talked about how it was our right as human beings to register and vote. I never knew we could vote before. Nobody ever told us. We hadn't heard anything about registering to vote because when you see this flat land in here when the people would get out of the fields if they had a radio they'd be too tired to play it so we didn't know what was going on in the rest of the state even much less in other places. On August 31, 1962, Ms. Fannie was denied her lawful right to register to vote after failing a literacy test, a discriminatory practice adopted in many states including Connecticut, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and South Carolina to obstruct the rights of immigrants, the poor, and those without access to education. And in southern states African American and Native Americans right to vote impeded their democratic participation in the communities they lived and worked in. Typically the tests were made up of 30 questions which had to be completed in 10 minutes. Some states focused on citizenship and laws others on logic. Okay fascinating fact the Voting Rights Act of 1965 makes the use of literacy tests as a prerequisite to voting unenforceable. Yet even today literacy tests are a part of the North Carolina constitution. In fact under house bill 44 North Carolinians will vote on November 5, 2024 about whether they will repeal this language through a constitutional amendment in a statewide general election. True story. In the mid-1960s Duke law professor William W. Van Alstine conducted an experiment in which he submitted four questions found on the Alabama voters literacy test to U.S. constitutional law professors. The professors answered the questions without the use of any reference aids just as other voters were required to do. Out of the 96 respondents who submitted answers only 30 percent were correct. In preparation for the podcast I took a previous Alabama voting literacy test. I got dizzy and gave up. Anyway I digress. Ms. Fanny's attempts to register to vote was a complete disruptor to the patriarchy. It destabilized the system locally and nationally. That's when the real trouble began. She was fired from her job of 18 years at the plantation. Extorted threatened harassed shot at and assaulted by racists. The Ku Klux Klan and members of the police while trying to register for and exercise her right to vote undeterred by the harassment of the devil. Ms. Fanny was determined to meaningfully participate in democracy and to support others in their pursuit to exercise equal rights under the law. She said if I fall I'll fall five feet four inches forward in the fight for freedom. I'm not backing off. We've been waiting all our lives and still getting killed. Still getting hung. Still getting beat to death. Now we're tired waiting. I was forced away from the plantation because I wouldn't go back and withdraw. You know my literacy test after I had tried to take it I wouldn't go back. I know lots of people in Mississippi who have lost their jobs trying to register to vote. Nobody's free until everybody's free. One day I know the struggle will change. There's got to be a change not only for Mississippi not only for the people in the United States but people all over the world. Ms. Fanny was forced to leave the plantation she supported. After Ms. Fanny was forced to leave the plantation she supported thousands of African Americans in Mississippi to become registered voters and helped hundreds of disenfranchised people in her area. Three months later when Ms. Fanny took and failed another literacy test she told the voter registrar you'll see me every 30 days until I pass and one month later on her third attempt Ms. Fanny became a registered voter in Mississippi only to discover her county required voters to have two poll tax receipts before they would be allowed to vote. After the right to vote was extended to all races through the enactment of the 15th amendment to the United States Constitution many states required a poll tax as a prerequisite to voting registration. In some states they were a part of the Jim Crow laws. Often these laws included a grandfather clause which allowed any adult male whose father or grandfather had voted in a specific year prior to the abolition of slavery to vote without paying the tax. Proof of payment of a poll tax was a prerequisite to voter registration in Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Texas. Ms. Fanny eventually paid the poll tax and received the poll tax receipts. She captivated the nation and rose to national prominence as she testified before the credential committee at the 1964 Democratic National Convention on behalf of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. She co-founded to stand as the official delegation from the state of Mississippi. The active disenfranchisement of black voters was a high state conflict of national significance gaining the support of Martin Luther King Jr. and rising to the attention and political gamesmanship of President Lyndon B. Johnson. Ms. Fanny's nationally televised testimony was so compelling that President Johnson attempted to silence her by strategically disrupting her speech with an impromptu press conference. Ms. Fanny's eight minute and 12 second televised testimony was interrupted because of the speech that Lyndon B. Johnson gave to 30 governors in the White House East Room. It was a speech about just about nothing, but most major news networks rebroadcast her testimony later that evening to the nation giving Ms. Fanny and her organization a lot of exposure. Okay, this is important. Section one of the 15th Amendment of the United States Constitution states, the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. Section two gave Congress the power to enforce section one through legislation. When Ms. Fanny spoke, people listened. She told the country about the deep aches of trying to register to become first class citizens and subsequently arrested, jailed, sexually assaulted, and nearly fatally beaten by police and under police orders by cellmates. Her colleagues were jailed and beaten. She said, all this on account we want to register to become first class citizens. And if the Freedom Democratic Party is not seated now, I question America. Is this America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, where we have to sleep with our telephones off the hooks because our lives are threatened daily because we want to live as decent human beings in America? In the years that followed, Ms. Fanny went on to co-found the National Women's Political Caucus, where she emphasized the power women could hold by acting as a voting majority in the country, regardless of race or ethnicity. The people have crowned her the mother of voter registration. I want to introduce you to Ms. Fanny Willis. In the northwest quadrant of Washington D.C. is a historically black college and university, Howard University. It has been there since 1867 and since 1867 the university has churned out unforgettable and unabashed changemakers. The highest ranking female in the United States history, first black, first Asian, and first woman, Vice President Kamala Harris. Civil rights leader and the nation's first African American justice, Thurgood Marshall. American novelist and the first black American to win the Nobel Prize in literature, Toni Morrison, whose books teach freedom and confront freedom's enemies. She found language to speak truth to power in ways that arrest its readers and demand a resolution of the visceral cognitive dissonance that surface. That's why her books find themselves on so many banned school lists under a pretext of one thing or another. Polly Murray, Isabel Wilkerson, Sonia Sanchez, Emmett G. Sullivan, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Zora Neale Hurston, Stokely Carmichael, Elijah Cummings, and so many others. But I think the most notable Howard University graduate is now Fanny Willis. She is the first female to serve as the Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney, a graduate of Emory School of Law. After serving the public as a prosecutor in the Fulton County District Attorney's Office, serving as Chief Municipal Judge in South Fulton, Georgia in 2020, she was elected to the seat of District Attorney of Fulton County, Georgia, the first woman to hold that office. Can we just have an honest dialogue here? We can't be worried about stepping on toes. I need you to listen to me. A beneficiary of the patriarchy has lost his mind. He had all the power, all the power. In plain sight, the patriarchy lost control of one of their own, who's now trying to break democracy and sell it to the highest bidder, foreign and domestic. The patriarchy homies can't figure out how to stop the derailment of outlaws off the tracks at 250 miles per hour, almost one mile for every year the United States of America has been in existence. I have read about and then watched the very system that the outlaw was created from try to rein him in. I have read about and then watched the very system that the outlaw was created from. Try to rein him in, by my count, for the past 59 years. They can't do it. They cannot figure it out. And in a fantastic unfolding of a fluid federal republic and the only country with a continuous democracy of more than 200 years, we are witnessing the courage of someone born and shaped outside of the patriarchy coming to rescue the patriarchy. Coming to the rescue of the patriarchy to protect the free world. They call this person, with the courage of conviction, District Attorney Fannie Willis. The 45th President of the United States has been criminally charged in Fulton County, Georgia, for his efforts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia. He is accused through the legal system of trying to nullify the votes of Fulton County citizens. Fascinating fact, the United States Census estimates that in 2022, 45% of the Fulton County, Georgia population was African American. The detail of the charges aren't the point here. And whether you may be persuaded of the efficacy of the charges cannot be known before the trial has occurred. The story here that we are witnessing is a collision of two opposing universal paths. I mean, can you stand to watch this without putting your fingernails, popcorn, or a fine crystal glass of dark liquor in your mouth? The history of voting in the state of Georgia is replete with voter disenfranchisement. In 1907, the governor of Georgia signed an act to amend the state constitution to impose a literacy test as a prerequisite for voting and included exemptions for white citizens to vote, even if they failed a literacy test. Grandfather Claus became a part of law in 1908, and it stated that any Union or Confederate veteran or their descendants could vote. Georgia women could not vote until 1922, and the state did not ratify women to vote under the 19th Amendment until 1970. States continued to disenfranchise citizens, particularly Black citizens, with literacy tests, poll taxes, and other voting laws or practices, until the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which was an act to enforce the 15th Amendment to the Constitution. The Constitution was passed in 1965, and the Constitution was passed in 1965. It was signed into law 95 years after the amendment was ratified. It outlawed the discriminatory voting practices adopted in many southern states after the Civil War, including literacy tests as a prerequisite to voting. It was at this point that African Americans could register and vote in large numbers. There are Georgia residents living today who were voting disenfranchised Georgia voters prior to 1965. The United States Census counts the population of Fulton County, Georgia in 2020 at 1,066,710. Now check this out. On August 7, 1971, Ms. Fannie Lou Hamer spoke at an organized peaceful student demonstration against the Vietnam War amongst a crowd of White and Black citizens. That demonstration was held at Hurt Park in downtown Atlanta, Fulton County. Just over six months after Ms. Fannie Lou Hamer's house was bombed. Incredibly. Don't miss what's happening. Don't miss this. What's happening now is that voting history has reached an apex in Fulton County, Georgia, and the 45th president attempted to resurrect voter disenfranchisement. And now district attorney Fannie is representing the voters of Fulton County, Georgia. 45% who are African Americans and protecting the hard earned right to vote. So yeah, I've got Fannie Fever. She's a mother from Southern California. Her father was a Black Panther. She lived in Washington, DC, graduated from the esteemed HBCU Howard University, and an alumna of Emory University School of Law. All things we could connect with over a good meal. But the reason I have Fannie Fever is because I am a great respecter of the magic of the universe and of God's plan unfolding. I am a great respecter of the courage that it takes for one to live up to the call of one's destiny. She is fearless because she just may have been born for this moment to stand in the gap for voters for democracy. Because her name is Fannie or Fannie. Standing for freedom. She is exactly where she needs to be in the moment she needs to be in. Doing the thing she was born to do. We're just lucky enough to have a front row seat. District Attorney Fannie Willis is standing in the gap for the long arc of justice that Martin Luther King Jr. at Washington National Cathedral spoke about when he said, we shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice. Fannie Eisenberg, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Fannie Willis. What does it look like to support courage and integrity in a showdown between those who choose to show up for courage and integrity, for freedom, and for democracy? Who will you support? Have you considered whether or not you are living up to the full potential of your name? I have Fannie Fever because through extraordinary trials, these women have carried the torch of freedom for us, for you, for our dreams of freedom. Won't you join me in honoring their journey? Won't you join me in valuing their gifts? Until next time, be well in your journey.
NY Times: Judge Sets Trial Date for Trump’s Federal Election Case
"January 2nd? But it potentially brought the proceeding into conflict with three other trials that Mr. Trump is facing, underscoring the extraordinary complexity of his legal situation, the intersection of prosecutions of this campaign to return to the White House. The district attorney in Fulton County, Georgia, has proposed taking Mr. Trump to trial in charges of tampering with the election in the state on March 4th as well. Another case in Manhattan in which Mr. Trump's been accused of more than 30 felonies connected to nondisclosure agreements in the run -up to the 2016 election is scheduled to go to trial on March 25th. So that would be two trials the same day and then another trial on the 25th while the other two trials are going on. And trial if the in Washington lasts more than 11 weeks, it could bump up against Mr. Trump's other federal trial on March 25th. And obstructing the government's efforts to retrieve them. Now notice the bias in the article to begin regurgitating the by the prosecutor. But let's go on. That trial is scheduled to begin in in Florida late May. The March 4 date set by Judge Truncan for the federal election case at a hearing in federal district court in Washington is the day before Super Tuesday. When 15 states scheduled are to hold Republican primaries or caucuses. Judge Truncan said that while she understood Mr. Trump had both other trial dates scheduled next year and at the same time was running for the country's highest office, she was not going to let the intersection of his legal troubles and his political campaign get in the way of setting a date. She said Mr. Trump, like any defendant, will have to make the trial date work

Everything it's just like one thing after the next and what they want to do is they want to try and wear you out would ever do but they want to wait you get to could about just an absolute horrible thing that they're doing and I've never seen anything like it. This is third world country and I really believe they're getting hit by it you know we were going there were tremendous crowds in that and they were so friendly so friendly but this is a radical left district attorney as we have in New York and as we have in all the other places whether it's district attorney or AGs we have that in New York they're going after all for nothing I mean the AG case they have no case against me at all do it to try and get elected but they also do it in court with the Department of Justice in Washington terrible thing never happened before you you know we can try and imagine what this man's going through but it really is unimaginable it's bad enough to have one case he's got four criminal cases and once in two civil cases all of which are either unleashed by Democrats donors he's got six cases four criminal that threatened his very liberty and two civil that threaten his

"Repeatedly. it Other conservative friends of mine never picked it up even though I talked about it repeatedly and now apparently it's drawn their attention. Thank you for your time.

Scanlan a Republican said he's listening and will seek legal advice ensure to that his team thoroughly understands the arguments at play. I have some in -house staff is there election experts isn't about election experts is about constitutional experts and it's about serious constitutional experts who understand that this is nonsense. Here in New Hampshire the GOP's 2020 nominee for the first congressional district attorney Brian Corky Messner said in a radio interview that he read about the legal theory and is now thinking about suing to ensure Scanlan enforces the Constitution against Trump.

Donald Trump has once again made history on Thursday as the first former sitting president to submit to a mugshot. He turned himself in at an Atlanta jail where he faces criminal charges related to trying to overturn his 2020 election defeat in Georgia. When the former president arrived at the Fulton County jail, he was fingerprinted and required to take a booking photo. Unlike in other cities that did not require Mr. Trump to say cheese for the mugshot, Fulton County officials were adamant about treating Mr. Trump like any other defendant. Kudos to those guys, man. I got to say that. Here on Convo Over Cigars, I'm your host, Derrick Andre Flemming. Trump was on the ground in the ATL for about an hour. The bulk of that time was spent at Fulton County jail. Following his arrest, he told reporters this was a sad day for America. It sounded like a broken record. Every time Trump's being interviewed, he says that. This is a sad day for America. He said he believed the 2020 presidential election was rigged and stolen and also a travesty of justice. Fulton County District Attorney Fannie Willis set a deadline of noon for everyone that was indicted last week in the election subversion case to turn themselves in. Bond for our Rudy Giuliani was set at $150 ,000. That is second only to Trump's $200 ,000. I got to take my hat off to Fannie Willis. I really do because here's an African -American woman. She puts me in the mind frame of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. This is an African -American woman who is not showing any type of preferential treatment. I thought it was astounding that she requested that Mr. Trump take a mugshot. You know, Florida, all these other places, New York, they were like, hey, we give Donald Trump. This is Donald Trump we're talking about. He doesn't have to be subjected to a mugshot. This is a very high profile person. But let's just be clear, a mugshot is basically photographic evidence that authorities use. That's protocol for pretty much any defendant. So why should Donald Trump be any exception? So I'm taking my hat off to this woman, obviously the YSL case, the very high profile case with Young Thug and Gunna and those guys. I think she is trying to set a precedent in Fulton County. You can do anything you want to do in these other places, but if you come to Fulton County with that nonsense, I'm going after you. I'm a prosecuting attorney that's going to go after you. And she is holding Trump and Giuliani and his cohorts, all these people, she is holding these people accountable. Now, Trump is 77 years old. He is the first U .S. former sitting president to face criminal charges. This is actually the fourth criminal case against Trump since March. Now in the state of Georgia, this case, he faces 13 felony counts, including racketeering. You guys have been locked into another edition of Convo Over Cigars. I'm your host, Derrick Andre Flemming on a Thursday night. Take care, guys.

The idea that people can be charged based on politics, even if you just posit the following. Right now, we have under indictment based on the indictments of four different Democrat district attorneys, all very questionable different attorneys. The strongest and most powerful candidate of the opposition party for president, who was the prior president. Now, that never happened in America before because we're a democracy and a country of laws. It does happen in communist countries, fascist countries, Nazi countries and totalitarian states. If that doesn't frighten the hell out of us, nothing will. So, Rudy, walk us through, I mean, you in a different time, you were one of the top prosecutors on the planet going after actual RICO cases, actual gangsters. And for doing nothing wrong now, they are coming after you for the same sort of similar charge that you once prosecuted. They don't know RICO if it hit him across the face. No, they don't. I mean, they've made unbelievable errors. I wish that the professor who wrote this, Professor Blakey, could be here because I think he'd give him an F minus. You know, missing from the RICO case is the extortion. People say, well, is it organized crime? And actually, it's crime by a very large organization over a very long period of time that has at the core of it very serious extortion. For example, if Trump had called the AG and said, get me 11000 votes, which, by the way, the president meant out of the 200000 that you and I know was stolen. And I know that for a fact, because that AG had sitting in his desk a report that he was hiding that virtually says that. Now, nobody tells you that, but it came out eight months, eight months later with a John Solomon request. FOIA But in any event, it would have to have been magic words there, words like, if you don't do it, I'm going to break your legs. If you don't do it, I'm going to shoot your wife. Those are the cases I prosecuted, not cases where people are persuading, people are debating, people are even arguing. We're all entitled to do that because of the First Amendment. What we're not entitled to do is to threaten harm and we're actually entitled to threaten harm as long as we don't have the means to carry it out. But we didn't even get to that stage. So this is a ridiculous RICO case. It's a ridiculous case to start with. And the worst part of it is it's a frontal attack on the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. It will deter other people from contesting elections that may very well have been stolen from them. And the only way they're going to find out is to go to court and aggressively argue their position. And this is in order to ensure a single party state. That's exactly right, Mr. Mayor. So I need to ask you, do you think that part of the reason they went so wide on the RICO is to try to get you to turn against Donald Trump in a multilevel kind of gangster type indictment? Do you think that's what they're trying to do here, Mr. Mayor? Yeah, I mean, they could get me to turn on Donald Trump and Donald Trump would turn out to be innocent. I mean, people say to me, are you going to cooperate? I'm happy to cooperate. I don't know a single damn thing that suggested Donald Trump committed a crime. You want me to tell you what happened? I'd be happy to tell you what happened. And look, I've already, Charlie, gone through my house being raided, my iCloud account taken for three years and spied on. And the day they took my iCloud account was the first day that I represented Donald Trump. And the day they gave it up was the day that I stopped representing him. So they took it in order to spy on Donald Trump. And then about eight months ago, they wrote a letter to the grand jury after costing me three or four million dollars in my law practice that there's no evidence over 20 years that I committed a crime. And then this Fannie Willis comes up with this garbage in Atlanta, which is me being a lawyer as well as Professor Eastman and the others. We were acting as lawyers. I mean, you used to think you got some protection for that. But Donald Trump has no First Amendment rights. Donald Trump has no right to counsel. I mean, they raided my law office. When I was a prosecutor, which I did a lot better than they ever did, I never raided a lawyer's office. Yeah, and I had lawyers representing the mafia, terrorists, Nazis. I had a lot better reason to do it than in an election dispute. So this is an assault on our Constitution. No one is exaggerating. And the president certainly isn't. When he says to people, it is very likely this administration continues. This can happen to you. So, Rudy, you're going to have to defend yourself. And in this particular venue, how can people help you with your legal fees and the costs associated with that? I'll get for you the exact place. But we have a legal defense fund, which they can help out with. It'll allow us not only to defend ourselves, but to become more aggressive and to go after them and try to get the information that they have. Because the strange thing is, Charlie, the crimes being committed here are being committed by them. I mean, this is Chapter 7. This is Chapter 7 in a book that begins with a Russian collusion. So that book has a conclusion, right? That conclusion is Democrats lying, Trump, Giuliani, Republicans telling the truth. And then there's another book, Improper Conversation with Ukrainian President Leading to Impeachment. That has a conclusion also. Democrats lying, particularly shifty -shift, Trump, Giuliani, Republicans telling the truth. Then we got the hard drive for which, if you go back and pick out the last debate, you see Biden accusing us, the president and I, of being Russian pawned. In fact, he calls me specifically, Rudy Giuliani, a Russian pawn. Well, that ends up 16 months later with Democrats and Biden lying, Trump, Giuliani and Republicans telling the truth. Now, I go on and on. There's no reason to believe that these aren't going to end up the same way. The sides didn't change here. I mean, the lifetime criminals, the Biden crime family didn't all of a sudden change and become honest. Believe me. If you could get that link or whatever for us so that we could promote it. I'll get the link for you. OK. Yeah. I just want to reiterate here on The Charlie Kirk Show, we are proud to be a place of political asylum. If you're under attack, you're going through a crisis and you're a good person. You are welcome on this program. Most of the Vichy French media run away. Oh, we don't want Rudy. We don't want that's not what we do here. One of the reasons why the left is taking over the country is we turn our back on our own far too easily. We're here to change that. Rudy Giuliani has done great service to this country and he is welcome anytime.
Rep. Anna Paulina Luna Unpacks the Weiss Fiasco
"We have Ana Paulina, who does a wonderful job in the House of Representatives. I've been told by several sources in Washington, DC, this Weiss issue has really changed the dynamic even amongst normie Republican circles. This Weiss fiasco is viewed on the left as a major liability and problem. Play cut 18. That I am told, this is hearsay, but I am told by a reliable source that Friday evening somebody from Washington called the District Attorney in Atlanta and said, you have to indict on Monday. We have to cover up all of the mistakes we just made with Weiss. And she said, apparently, my jurors aren't coming back till Tuesday. And they said, you didn't hear me. You have to indict on Monday. And she said, we're not going to get here before noon. They said, it doesn't matter. She said, this means it's going to be eight or nine or ten o 'clock at night. Said, it doesn't matter. We need the news media shifting. Who made that phone call? We don't know. And I'm telling you up front, this is hearsay, but it's from a person who has remarkably good sources. I totally believe it, though, because that would explain why they leaked and they messed up on the clerk document, why she was exhausted and why they had the 11 p .m. press conference, Mr. Speaker. All right. So give us the latest on Weiss. It's a little bit hard to track all of this. And by the way, you're about to have a baby. So thank you for congratulations. Best thing in the world for making time for us here. And you're really you're making waves on oversight. So give us the latest. What's going on with Weiss? Give us the update. We know Weiss is corrupt. He basically has been working to give Hunter Biden sweet sweetheart plea deals. And in addition to that, many of my colleagues, to include other members, OK, these are private conversations that might not necessarily fully back Trump for 2024, have agreed that what is happening out of the DOJ and the DOJ is completely just not OK. So there's going to be a massive appropriations fight. And frankly, if people think that we are going to go, you know, to push a CR and move forward with accepting this budget that's going to be funding this stuff, they have something else coming. So that's why you saw that statement come out from the Freedom Caucus earlier today. And you are going to see, I think, on the back end of fight, especially to defund everything that he's doing. So is there going to be a willingness on your, say, more moderate Republican colleagues to go along with that, you think? I think at this point, you know, a lot of what I hear on the back end is they're worried about taking those hard votes. But with what we're seeing with the American people, right, you're just your average Republican voter and even independents and Democrats, they don't have faith in the justice system. So I don't think that it's going to be hard for them to decide, especially being that, look, we have at least 20 members in the Freedom Caucus that will not be going along with this. And ultimately, at the end of the day, you know, people say, oh, well, you know, government shut down this, that and the other. Look, we have a lot a lot of problems right now in Washington and we can't just continue down this path of doing the same thing over and over again.

with bannon along with many other people jack pasobek we have and are moving the overton window and the media is starting to take notice new york magazine by the way just how dishonest this is locking up our political opponents is our biggest priority now that's you guys you're the ones that are about to sentence steve bannon you're the ones that just indicted 16 michigan electors most of which are senior citizens drawing on social security just to survive you're the ones that and mark meadows you're the we're simply responding this is james lindsay dr james lindsay one of my favorite people beautiful trouble .org he isolated beautiful trouble is kind of the playbook of the left he said the reaction of the right is always the action of the left and at first it didn't really make a lot of sense you guys can go to beautiful trouble .org it's a left -wing social justice warrior training camp for all these left -wingers and their react the they provoke you and then they say here's a great way to here's a great example and and blake you know there's like an internet meme that shows this they'll slap you and then you punch them back and then they'll say see they punched me they punched me they punched me they punched me that's the best example better example if anyone has watched the nfl or ncaa football it is always what who the second guy that gets the flag always it's the guy that pushes back always it's like the iron law of football now referees have gotten better at this they have but it was like an old running joke that you know some cornerback will push a running back and then the running back will throw him down and the guy that throws him down gets the 15 yard penalty and maybe even kicked out of the game they're getting better at forcing that the left is the one that provokes you they're the ones that push you and then you dare punch back and the media says what are you doing the right there are a bunch of fascists that want to put people in jail meanwhile literally half our movement is under indictment like i'm not exaggerating douglas mackie and i'm gonna get to james o 'keefe in a second douglas mackie steve eight to ten years ago on a campaign finance thing that was so ridiculous the left breaks those rules all the time and they're not stopping so we have called repeatedly for local action action action because now the new prerequisite is

He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at sierra pacific mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now exclusively, Senator Colton Moore, a great American. There is fight left in the state of Georgia. And there is an official petition to investigate Fannie Willis, as well as now his letter to Governor Brian Kemp. I'm going to read this. Colton Moore, welcome to the program. Dear Governor Kemp, we, the undersigned, being the duly elected members of the Georgia House of Representatives and Georgia Senate, and compromising three -fifths of each respective house pursuant to article four section two paragraph 7b, making sure my Roman numerals are right, hereby certify to you in writing with a copy of the Secretary of State that in our opinion emergency exists in the affairs of the state, requiring a special session to be convened under that section for all purposes to include that limitation, the review and response of the actions of Fannie Willis. Sincerely, Colton Moore. Colton, welcome to the program. Tell us about it. Charlie, thank you for having me. I mean, we're in a dire situation. After these indictments came out, I woke up, ate my biscuit, and I was like, is there a hair in my biscuit? I mean, this is disgusting. We have a district attorney using taxpayer money, using her government authority to persecute her political opponent to the tune of the death penalty. I will not be a sitting senator in this state and potentially have the former president be executed in the state of Georgia. Yeah, so let's just kind of walk through this. You are now leading a legislative campaign of oversight. What does that look like constitutionally in the state of Georgia? Tell us about it. So I have a job to do as a Senator, Charlie, and part of that job in the legislature is providing oversight. The Constitution gives us some tools to do that. First of which is the power of the purse, right? We control the money. And my constituents, Georgians outside of the city of Atlanta, don't feel that their tax dollars ought to be used for this type of purpose. You know, we've also got the power to investigate any judicial or executive official, and we ought to be doing an investigation on Fannie Willard. And if that investigation turns out that she's corrupt, like many of us suspect, it's time for impeachment. And so what is impeached? So in the Georgia Constitution, the House or the Senate can impeach a prosecutor. Is that correct? That's correct. Yeah, it's one of those checks and balances that we're blessed with here in the presidential system of American government. So let me ask you, read the room for us amongst your colleagues. You're leading this. It's now going totally viral as finally, praise God, good on you. Let's use some of this constitutional power to slow this down, investigate her. Was she given an external power? Why is she and why is she indicting the entire Republican Party, such as Trump? It's John Eastman, Rudy Giuliani, Jen Ellis. It's totally out of control. It's a fellow senator. It's a colleague of mine in the Senate. Is it also included on that indict? So what is what is the temperature check of the Georgia Senate? Is this going to be met? Yeah, please. Yeah, I mean, Republicans in the state of Georgia are asleep at the wheel, OK? Everything is talk, talk, talk. I talked to my other fellow senators and everything's well, you know, we're kind of wait this out, talk about it, you know, post the tweet, you know, let's make a Facebook post. I have a job to do. It's time to take action. And Charlie, let me tell you, right after this and that, I was having dinner with my mother and I told her, I said, no more talk like I have a job to do. Time to take action. And she was worried. He's like, I don't know, you know, they've got these guys charged with crimes that could potentially result in lethal injection. I don't know if I want you meddling in that. And I was like, mom, that's the time to take action, because as a red blooded American, you should never fear a Gestapo political tactic from a power like a D .A.. So I don't want to get you in trouble here, but just I want to I want to drill this down. Your other do you think your colleagues are going to support this? Oh, I think when their constituents start calling them up, they're going to be supporting them. Boom. Right. Because it's time to take action. Well, according according to Fannie Willis, it's a conspiracy to ask your lawmakers to do something. But whatever. Let's let's let's just be clear. So for the patriots of Georgia, they need to call their state rep on their state senator. And what is the ask? What is the order? To help us with this process to begin defunding the district attorney and investigating through the means of a special session. That's our job as a legislature to put a check and balance on this judicial branch, to put a check and balance on the judicial branch. And and praise God, you have the courage. Were you cautioned not to get into this by certain, let's just say older Republicans? Were you told, don't send this letter? You know, the caution comes in many forms. They're all cautious. And that's the scary part. That's what makes me so afraid. I mean, I'm 29 years old, Carly. I do not want to live the next 30 years of my life worried about a regime. I mean, this is some Putin fascist nonsense. So the letter is composed to the governor. Does he have to be the one to actually call the special session? No, no. So part of that check and balance process, the governor himself could call a special session and we could start right now. We could start tomorrow. But the governor has already made his statement. You know, he's looking back at this like this is a 2020 issue. Well, it took 19 days to count the votes. And these individuals have a legitimate concern about the election. Right. They were they were using their First Amendment to express concern about the election. And then now they're being charged with it. They're being taken political prisoner. And so so then you guys can call the session with three. That's right. Without the governor. Right. Without the governor. Does he preside over it or is he called into it or? No, no. The legislature would be operating independently and it gives us full subpoena power. So what are the what are the numbers, the House and the Senate, as far as the Republican majorities? So if every Republican in the Senate signed on, we would have we would have what was necessary. It's going to take every GOP Republican to stand up and abide by the principles of freedom, regardless of whether you like Donald Trump or not, regardless if you have a beef with some of these other folks who are indicted. These folks were using their freedom of expression and they had a concern. So the problem we're going to have over in the House is we're going to have to pick up a few Democrats. The margins are a little tighter there. But here's the other thing about this district attorney. The ACLU reports that half of the inmates in her jail have yet to be charged with a crime. And in meanwhile, we've got Young Thug, Young Slime, who's got RICO charges similar to what these political prisoners are about to have, and they haven't even picked a jury in over a year now. So so now we have evidence it's Young Thug. I thought is this some sort of a rapper or something? I believe so. Yeah, I'm not I'm not a big rap music fan, but his name is Young Thug. And I think the crime syndicate called Young Slime. Got it. So, yeah, so they they're standing for RICO charges and she's going easy on him. Meanwhile, so I mean, and by the way, Fulton County, it's like a third world country. When I go there, crime is up. It's terrible. And yet she's going she's trying an interstate RICO case. I this and claims that she can get it done in like six months. Right. And 18 people. And yet it's ridiculous. And yet Republicans are asleep at the wheel and say, I don't know, just let's let it play out. You know, so we have to wake up the Republican Party. I'm sure you have some colleagues that are going to stand with you, but we have to each Republican Georgia senator one by one. We need every county in Georgia. We need mass mobilization. This is the call to action. I just want you to riff on this. I'll be honest. I love the people of the state of Georgia. I love Georgia. But you guys have really disappointed in some ways in the last couple of years. It's a strange Republican apparatus. This is a chance for Georgia redemption. Yeah, no doubt.
A highlight from All GOP Presidential Candidates Should Suspend Their Campaigns And Support Trump
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is The Mike Gallagher Show. Even when everything you say makes sense except it's all bullshit. It's all non -stop. We know this is designed to banish and isolate and to destroy a political outsider. That's the funny thing about this Democrat party. It does hate America. It's hated America since its founding. Voters decide who our presidents are. Not district attorneys, not big donors, not anchors, not pundits, not lawyers. Voters decide. Now from the relieffactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. The voters get to decide. And the voters are going to decide. I'm convinced of that. If not, my country is gone. Welcome aboard. It's Wednesday. I was reading this morning about the Fulton County Sheriff's Department and how the sheriff says, oh, they're all going to get booked and processed. Trump and the 18 other indicted co -conspiracers. There's going to be this three -ring circus next week, a week from Friday, where President Trump and Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell and all the rest of them are going to get booked and processed like common criminals at the Fulton County Jail. There's one goal there. You know what it is. It's to embarrass. It's to intimidate. It is to attack a guy that more than half the country loves. And every attempt to embarrass him is going to result in his popularity increasing. Every effort to embarrass him is going to result in greater popularity for President Trump. I had a No Interruptions podcast that dropped this morning. Wherever you get your podcasts, I hope you subscribe to The Mike Gallagher Show No Interruptions podcast. It's really special because we present two points of view without any interrupting. You know, there's a lot of interrupting with Mark Davis this morning. You'll hear it today, the Eminem experience. Mark and I disagreed mightily about my belief that if Ron DeSantis and all the other Republican candidates would simply throw their support behind Trump right now, drastic times call for drastic measures. Jack Smith and Fannie Willis and all the rest of them, Biden's Justice Department, Merrick Garland, they want to destroy your ability to elect the next president of the United States. They're what an amazing, inspirational move it would be if Governor DeSantis said, you know what, I'll try again in twenty twenty eight. But right now I'm all in for Trump. I can't believe they've weaponized the Justice Department this way. It cannot stand. It will not stand. I'm in for Trump. And first of all, DeSantis becomes the single most popular politician in the history of America. His twenty twenty eight landslide would be guaranteed. Second of all, Trump's election in twenty twenty four would almost certainly be guaranteed. These Republicans could unify and have the opportunity to turn this whole thing around just like that. Now, it's not going to happen. I'm sure I'm delusional, perhaps. But man, oh, man, what a game changer that would be. And Mark Davis, boy, he went off on me. He just thinks I'm crazy, delusional. I don't want to let voters vote. I'm Hugo Chavez. I'm Venezuela. He kept arguing with me today that I'm trying to take away the right to vote. I said, Mark, that's precisely what Biden's Justice Department is trying to do. Don't you get it? And for Mark and people who feel the way Mark feels, it's just business as usual. Let's let it all play out. Let's have the primaries. Let's have the debates. Oh, next week. OK, let's get our popcorn out. There'll be a lot of drama, but that's OK. It'll all sort itself out. It's not going to sort itself out. People are going to have to stand up and and do things they would have never considered doing before. And I believe that would include Republicans unifying behind Trump. It could be a pipe dream, but then again, hey, it's 2023. Anything is possible. So back to this no interruptions podcast, a back and forth. This week's no interruptions podcast was between Caroline Wren, who's the former finance adviser for Trump, his Trump Victory Finance Committee. She's also been working with Carrie Lake and David Carlucci, who's a Democrat strategist and a former Democrat New York state senator. And we debated election integrity. Caroline said something and there's no interruptions. First of all, make sure you check out this podcast. Again, subscribe to The Mike Gallagher Show, no interruptions podcast wherever you get your podcast. You're going to want to hear this one. Again, no back and forth, no crosstalk, no interference. You get to hear both points of you uninterrupted. But Caroline explain why there is so much doubt about the integrity of the 2020 election. And so I wanted to lift that cut. I want to play that clip for you from yesterday's pot for this week's podcast. I want you to hear why millions of us are cynical about the outcome of the 2020 election. I don't think I've ever heard anybody in just a minute and seconds 54 so perfectly summarize the problems of the 2020 election and why we have so much doubt. I want to play that for you coming up here in the Relief Factor Studios. I also want to invite you to join us, 800 -655 -MIKE. We've also been taking a poll, The Birch Gold Survey at MikeOnline .com. Make sure you answer the question there, the poll question, every day brought to you by Birch Gold. All you got to do is text the keyword Mike to 98 -98 -98 and we'll send you a free info kit on owning gold, silver, precious metals. It's 13 past the hour. Welcome aboard. Our number is 800 -655 -MIKE. And if you want to beat me up a little bit like Mark Davis did this morning, that I'm crazy and delusional over whether or not it would be a good thing for all the Republican candidates to endorse Trump now. You think that's nuts? We'll see. And wait till you hear what Caroline Wren says about election integrity, 2020 style. 800 -655 -6453. We have a line open and ready just for you.

That's Professor Joshua Kastenberg of the University of New Mexico Law School. I'm June Grosso and you're listening to Bloomberg. Broadcasting 24 hours a day at Bloomberg .com and the Bloomberg Business Act. This is Bloomberg Radio. Former President Trump is facing criminal conspiracy charges in Georgia related to his alleged efforts to overturn the state's 2020 election results. Fulton County District Attorney Fannie Willis said Trump has until noon Eastern time next Friday to voluntarily surrender after he was indicted last night. Trump faces felony racketeering charges and more. Willis refused to comment on the indictment copy called a fabrication by her office that was posted on the Fulton County clerk's Web site yesterday prior to the grand jury finishing up its work. The 97 page indictment includes 41 felony counts. 18 other people have also been charged in the case, including Trump's former lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Willis noted she will seek a trial date within six months. The death toll in Hawaii from wildfires is at ninety nine. The massive wind driven blaze that tore through the once picturesque town of Lahaina on the island of Maui is now the deadliest wildfire in modern U .S. history. Damages are estimated at more than five and a half billion. And sadly, officials expect the death toll to continue to rise. This comes as the Hawaiian Electric Company is beginning the laboring task of restoring power to fire ravaged West Maui. Mounting evidence suggests power lines played a role in starting the fire that destroyed Lahaina one week ago.

"Mary Amsterdam. A movie star. The Professor and Mary Ann. Somebody in the Nick Van Dyke cast a mic, I know, sorry. You know how Professor and Mary Ann got screwed in season one, right? What? Gilligan the skipper to a millionaire and his wife. A movie star and the rest, the rest. The Professor and Mary Ann. That was season two, the entire first season. There were only two people left and they could have fit them into the song, but the first season Gilligan's Island says, a movie star instead of the Professor and Mary Ann. So Russell Johnson, Don Wells, not even mentioned at the beginning, crazy. A hundred and fifty brain cells of mine have just died. That's right. How do you know that? Do you realize, if you want to talk about the master of useless knowledge, there it is. Oh, you got that right. Well, here's what's weird. So you and I have talked about how Dick Van Dyke has wound around our brain. The show debuted when you were like one. So I guess it's in syndication because I'm old enough that in its later incarnations, because it went 61 to 66, I remember watching late season stuff when I'm seven or eight, a member of that magnificent cast, one of the best casts ever, a member of that cast born 100 years ago today. And that would be the amazing Rosemary, Sally Rogers. It's a great documentary about her. Have you seen it? Yes. It's called Wait For Your Laugh. I love it. And guess who's not in it? Well, okay, well, hang on. I think she might have been because she died. Well, guess who wouldn't have been in it anyway? Dick Van Dyke himself is in it, who's still alive at 97. Carl Reiner is in it. Mary Tyler Moore. Okay, Mary Tyler Moore. I think it died before it came out. Rosemary and Mary Tyler Moore, Sally Rogers and Laura Petri did not get along. So the story goes, yeah, so the story goes. And just an amazing, and she started out as a child star in like the 30s. And there's a wonderful quote from her. She said, I had this deep voice, which you can remember from the Sally Rogers character. So I'm in these movies as a kid and people thought I was a 30 -year -old midget. There's that theory. Don't say that. You can't use that. First of all, don't say that word. Dwarf, dwarf, dwarf. Her quote, not mine. Her quote, not mine. All right, how about some headlines today because we've got some real stuff to talk about. Let's go. Big stuff, big breaking news. Let's take a stroll through the headlines. Hillary and Rachel Maddow crack up laughing over Trump's new bombshell indictment. Here's a headline. Georgia district attorney gives Trump until August 25th at noon to surrender. From Axios, case loaded with breathtaking ambition. Breaking news, Georgia judge rules cameras will be allowed in courtroom if Trump is indicted. You know, Mark, we love talking about cultural stuff and TV shows and Mary Tyler Moore and all that. I want to bring up an analogy of a movie I remembered when I was a kid that had a profound impact on me, The Exorcist. Do you remember the scene when the little girl who is possessed by the devil does something terrible and it's way over the top? I forget what it is she did. Oh, there are a couple of those. I know, she threw the priest out the window, something. But after she did it, she's sitting in the bed, the devil now is in this little girl's body. The evil cackle? The evil cackle and a look on her face like even I know I went too far. She's got a look and I remember that scene. I'm like, even the devil knows I went too far. Yeah, but you know what? I'm feeling that today because they've gone so far. This evil act of interfering with an election, a desperate attempt to stop Trump is so far. Mark, you know there are Democrats and people who hate Trump who know this is too much. You know they know it. They're listening to us. They do, Mark. They have to. Yes, there are some. What percentage of Democrats in America, it's a total gut check, what percentage of Democrats in America look at this and go, dude, I hate him, but this is crazy. We're going to get him elected and this is, or actually they probably know that, but I think your premise is even they know this is overreach. Even they know this is a sham. Even they know this is wrong. Read the indictment. Read the indictment and recognize that Fannie Willis has, and incidentally you saw of course the debacle, how they released accidentally the charges before the grand jury ended its meeting. They just couldn't wait. They just got it. They couldn't help it. They couldn't help themselves. I mean, this is like right out of a Hollywood movie. The state of Georgia, now let this sink in, has criminally indicted the former president of the United States for tweeting that people ought to turn on the TV and watch one American news. Yep. That's one of the charges. Another one is securing a meeting room in the state Capitol to coordinate the alternate set of electors that they would deploy if their claims prevailed. They didn't, so the alternate electors were for naught, but just renting that, securing that room was also a crime. Another one, they indicted the White House chief of staff for asking for a phone number. Pennsylvania, pretty excited. They also indicted the former GOP state chair for reserving a room, as you said. I mean, Mark, this is unbelievable. I mean, and I'm telling you that he's going to get elected. In fact, this one might have done it. This one might be enough to say, and you know what's awful? He'll be behind bars. They're going to convict him, Mark, and we've got to be ready for this. I heard Byron York give a terrible scenario this morning that ought to be a wakeup call to every American. Here's a scenario that could happen. He gets convicted. He gets incarcerated. He has to go to prison. Biden wins by a sliver like he did in 2020. After the election, the higher courts throw it all out and say it was bogus and it was wrong. Meaning he was in jail for naught. He was in jail falsely. Well, he lost the election based on it, Mark. That's the ultimate proof of election interference. This is something that Fannie doesn't care about. This is something that Rachel Maddow doesn't care about. You go ahead and live in a country where we're going to have to accept that a conviction that was then ruled completely improper and unconstitutional and wrong and politically motivated, but it's too late because by the time it gets to the higher courts, the election is over and Biden hangs on for a sliver of a victory. If that happens, Democrat America will be fine because they don't really particularly even care that necessarily much if Trump dies in jail. They'd love it. But what all they really want, all this is all about is taking him off the field, off the battlefield for this election so that he doesn't become president again. If they get that, they won't care at all if everything gets appealed successfully, don't you think? I mean, Mark, Democrat America may not care, but America should care and America is going to be broken. I'm telling you, this will break this country. We're already heading that way and I'm not trying to overstate this. Charlie Kirk tweeted something out that's so important. He says, here's an actual line from the Georgia indictment. Now listen, this is from the indictment. Act 22. This is a criminal act that Fannie Willis wants Trump to go to jail over. As read by the – here it is, quote, on or about the third day of December 2020, Donald John Trump caused to be tweeted from the Twitter account at Real Donald Trump, quote, Georgia hearings now on one American news network, amazing, unquote. This was an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy.

At least 93 people are confirmed dead after raging wildfire swept through the popular resort town of Lahaina in Hawaii. Governor Josh Green compared the devastation to a war zone, adding that all state and federal resources are being brought in to aid recovery efforts. A Georgia D .A. could bring her case against former President Trump to a grand jury as early as tomorrow in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Reports that District Attorney Fannie Willis could issue indictments on Tuesday against Trump and his associates for allegedly trying to overturn Georgia's results in the 2020 presidential election. The attorney for Hunter Biden says a five year investigation has shown no evidence that President Biden was involved in any of his son's business dealings. It had to be part of what the prosecutor has already looked at, as well as every other false allegation, whether it's corruption or Farah or money laundering. Appearing on CBS's Face the Nation, Abby Lowell emphasized that the investigation was ordered by and conducted by officials appointed by former President Trump. Lowell said the investigation only turned up evidence related to tax filings and gun possession. Lowell says a plea deal is still a possibility after the initial agreement fell apart in federal court last month. A political science professor says mainstream support in the U .S. for political violence.

The Iowa State Fair is in the center of the political universe this weekend as the top 2024 Republican hopefuls try to gain support. Former President Trump is getting a mixed reaction from some GOP voters. I like what Trump could do if he just kept his mouth shut. Right. So that was the thing. And so I don't he's not a good leader. He's I liked his philosophies and what he was trying to accomplish. But the way he went about it, not good. Polls show Trump with a commanding lead over his GOP rivals, despite several recent indictments. The former president's campaign appearance in Des Moines comes amid reports that Georgia District Attorney Fannie Willis is expected to present her case against Trump to a grand jury early next week due to his attempt to overturn the state's results in the 2020 presidential election.

Oh, by the way, uh, she, uh, Jill tweeted about how clever smart and funny stormy Daniels is. Who it's been on fire. She is amazing. She was asked if God, she's afraid to face Trump in a court of law. She said, I've seen him naked. There is no way he could be scarier with his clothes on. Oh, my retina. Oh, stormy Daniels also loved Randy rainbow's new. Did you see it? I had fantastic. I had to tweet, it's the best whatever, which is saying a lot for him, but oh, my God.

Jill also tweeted Trump appealing his loss in executive privilege as frivolous, delay is the only possible motive since Watergate has been clear that a grand jury's need for evidence prevails over privileged doubly so wound in common isn't the one claiming privilege. We also we have time to get to all this with her, but she also said judge grint's summary judgment to dominion on the issue of the falsity of fox's reporting and sends the question of malice of Fox to trial, I predict the evidence will support dominion and its $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox.

"Our first even before I talk about the story and update on yesterday's story, there was some huge, huge victories yesterday. The progressive Democrat won in the Chicago mayoral race and we are extremely excited about that. A moderate to Liberal Democrat, one in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race, and that now flips the majority in the Wisconsin Supreme Court to a liberal four three majority. I believe I have that right. And so we're seeing in the Midwest, progressives and liberals are winning significant races. In the Chicago mayoral race, in the Wisconsin, that was a statewide Supreme Court race. In 2022, Democrats took over every branch of government in Michigan. Democrats are making major moves in the Midwest as Republicans make the south extremely conservative politically, the Midwest is responding by saying we reject that and we don't want that here. I want to give you just a quick update and I have a phone call I have to hop on for my dear mother. In Tennessee, tomorrow, they are voting in Tennessee in the state legislature. To oust three Democrats who just protested, gun violence and ridiculous gun laws in Tennessee. That's all they did. There was no violence. There were no injuries. There were no weapons. There was no one killed. They have disabled their keycards. They have already written the legislation to have them removed. These are people that were voted in by their constituents. Democratically elected people. And with the swipe of a pen. They are trying to remove them from office. It is a huge deal. It is a slide into fascism. It is an escalation of kind of what I think is a hit to hit confrontation that we're experiencing in this country right now. And I am deeply concerned, I will probably give you an update on what happens tomorrow. I'll probably give you an update on that on Friday and we'll connect in all right. Love and appreciate you all.

"Special report, I'm Peter king. And joining us live on Skype CBS investigative correspondent Catherine herridge, who was inside the Manhattan district attorney's office in just finished listening to DA Alvin Bragg speak. Catherine good to have you back. What did the DA say that stood out the most to you? Well, he essentially told reporters that here in New York State doesn't matter if it's a white collar crime or a business records crime that they will prosecute it. And he gave us more details about the counts involved, the falsifying the business records. He said checks invoices and general ledger entries. And this was over a two year period 2015 to 2017. Of course, in that lead up to the 2016 election. And of course, he said that this was a clear violation of New York election law. Can you talk about that? They talked about election law and he talked about the need for transparency and he also talked, unfortunately, cryptically about the fact that he is new evidence now that was not available to other teams of prosecutors that declined to move forward on this case going through the indictment while it doesn't charge a conspiracy. It certainly paints a picture of a conspiracy with several payments not only to the porn actress stormy Daniels, but also Trump doorman by American media. So what was the parent company of the national inquirer? So it paints a picture of a broader conspiracy to conceal information from the voters. So what has been the response either from the former president or his lawyers? Well, he's got a new lawyer on this case, Todd blanche. I spoke when the attorney who's worked with planche in the past and he said that he's not afraid to kind of wade into a difficult case and that he believes he sees this one as one of overreach. He spoke to reporters outside the courthouse and said the former president is reviewing the indictment of a very frustrated by what he's reading and that he intends to fight onwards. It's not clear at this point how vocal the former president will be able to be on social media. I understand that he was admonished by the judge for some of his earlier statements, so did not go as far as to place a gag order on the parties. Yeah, that was really interesting to me because the judge admonished him for the rather sharp comments. He made against DA Alvin Bragg and himself. So I wonder tonight what the president is, the former president's demeanor will be and what he's actually going to say, how this affects that. Well, here I'm just offering my best sort of informed view of what may happen. That seemed to me like the warning shot from the judge in this case. This judge has a history. He presided over the Trump organization case. And in that case, specifically, he declined to let the defense attorneys argue that this was a selective prosecution, which sounds like a track, a legal track that they may take in this case as well, that he's being singled out because he's Donald Trump. The admonition from the judge should certainly play into the former president's comments this evening, but if anything can be said about Donald Trump, he is unpredictable and it disrupter. So we could look for more of that this evening. Catherine always good to talk to you. Thanks so much for helping us out this afternoon. Of course, happy to do it. Thanks.

"Have felt at the hands of district attorneys. And we can't we can't separate that out and another thing. I want to encourage us. To acknowledge is the difference between crime in harm because we know that there are a lot of things that are criminalize that aren't harmful in. There are a lot of things that are harmful that are not criminalizing. A lot of that has to do with what we look like how much money we have. What communities where a par on insulin we just say on this thing is a crime in. That's the will of the legislature you know. We know that it is the law. That slavery's abolished except punishment for a crime. And then after that several crimes were created in order to criminalise free. Black people like that. That is the history of of our criminal legal system in this country and it cannot be ignored and so we're not saying that there is no harm. We absolutely know that what we are calling for is for governments and and legal professionals to change the way we respond to the harm and look at root causes. The noticed. something. That district attorney's cannot do And it's something that they shouldn't do. There's no reason why district attorney should be gatekeepers for resources that community needs. We shouldn't have to go through district attorneys to get access to treatment to get access to to job services to get access to all of the things that should already be in communities. I'm in so yes. Do not prosecute lists are arm where and because it is a corrective to at this point. All the only thing that district china's can do for communities reduce heart in having these lists reduces the harms that community members bates again. I feel like the questions going to save a one about victims and again that even the dichotomy economy between victim and perpetrator ignores the fact that on any given nato that the same people say that could could. I jump in ben. Sorry i wasn this nisa victims say communities of color in my experience are not a monolith. I mean there are many many many people in low income communities and creators of color who come to the office. Come to the police and ask for lots of help. So this is not.

I mean we hear. We hear candidates talking about holding police accountable but a huge part of the job is prosecutors and police work together. There's also this issue that comes up around What have termed testifying right officers. That can't be trusted to to to tell the truth. That seems to be coming up quite a bit again. We're talking about a democratic primary here as you said you know. We expected At least before this really significant increase in gun violence. That's now in sustained for quite a while.

That's not necessarily always the case but But how do you see this theme of prosecutors police Playing out here. I think that's why this is primary so important. Why i wish more people are paying attention to it. Because i think it's one of the first real test. We have aware of berry.

Obviously flavors murdered people took to the streets that took the streets in manhattan and you saw kind of fundamental reshaping. How people ought about police now.

It was her first ever criminal conviction and it was related to her use of dangerous drugs as is the case with about seventy five percent of people booked into our county jail drug addiction mental illness or both will. This young woman was pregnant and it was a high risk pregnancy. Now there is no reason in a decent caring humane society that cares about public safety that someone with a high risk pregnancy and no criminal. History should be serving jail time on a misdemeanor conviction reason whatsoever. In fact we sort of showed that in san francisco. It's possible to safely karsh rate that actually short periods of incarceration lead to more crime. Not less and so by reducing our reliance on incarceration. We've actually seen the crime. Rates fall overall crime. Since i took office is down by about twenty percent and certain categories of crime that are particularly important crimes like robbery. That are violent. Crime that is one of the highest frequency crimes in san francisco. That's down by about twenty percent assaults down by about fifteen percent rape down by about fifty percent theft and car break ins. Were down by about forty percent in two thousand twenty compared to the year before i took office now obviously a lot of that has to do with the pandemic and we're seeing major shifts in how we live our lives and people working from home but all the folks who said if you release people it will lead to an increase in crime. Actually we saw the opposite and it's a really important lesson as we think about what safety looks like and how we build healthier communities. What do you say to people. It's a big argument on the right. Right there's staff this low level theft taking place. Somebody walks into a store and just walked out with coat. Because they knew they weren't going to get prosecuted and like you know my thing is if somebody needs a coat that badly. Let's look at why they needed that coat. But okay. that's a separate story. What do you say about that. Well look you know. Keeping san francisco safe allowing our businesses to thrive allowing tourists to come enjoy our city. All of that is a critical part of my job and in my office takes it really seriously. But the fact of the matter is thefts are down by more than forty percent in twenty twenty down by another twenty percent so far twenty twenty one so yes we have ongoing problems with property crime in san francisco. That's not a new problem. that doesn't exist. Only because of my policies in the year when san francisco had the most auto burglaries wasn't twenty seventeen. And they've been steadily falling since then so first of all it's a bit of fearmongering exploitation sensationalization of crime to attack reform policies to undermine racial justice. Second of all. We know that we can never lock our way. Up out of problems like auto burglaries. Let me tell you. Why police in san francisco which is not a criticism of police. I wanna be clear. This is true in many other jurisdictions. These numbers are not unusual. Police in san francisco only make arrests in about three percent of thefts whether shoplifting or auto burglaries three percent that means ninety seven percent of the time that a faster car breaking occurs. It gets reported to police. Nobody's even being arrested. If we focus narrowly on really draconian harsh punishment for the three percent of people that are actually getting arrested. It's not going to change anything. It's simply going to move us backwards in time. To an era of mass incarceration that starves our law enforcement budget our public health budgets in our public education budgets of the resources. They need to prevent future crime in the long run. We need to focus on root causes of crime. As you said. Why is it that somebody needs that coat in the first place. Now we're not going to be able to solve all those problems from within the district attorney's office but we need to focus our resources on the crimes that have the most serious consequences for victims and the highest stakes for the people. We accused murder armed. Robbery weapons offenses. That's my priority violent crimes in when it comes to lower level offenses look cute crimes from shoplifting. All the way up to murder. Since i took office we filed over six thousand new criminal cases. We are prosecuting cases when police bring them to us. But we're not focusing on incarceration as a metric of success instead if someone gets arrested for shoplifting and they're on housed or have a substance dependence. That's leading to their arrests. We connect them with services housing drug treatment mental health care we have a wide array of diversion programs that help people engage with services.

"What i call woke news is on at the insistence on a re racialism of everything into a power binary that portrays one side is all powerful and the other side is totally powerless. And this is really what you've seen happen to the conversation about race in america right we we see the whole conversation. Divide people into their racial group affiliation. you have white people who are privileged and powerful and pulled white supremacy on the one hand and at the expense of people color who have no agency as far as what people are concerned And i think this is incredibly dehumanizing But this is now how israel is seen by the far left by woke activists and by a newly woke media and now even members of congress to so israel is being cast as the kind of colonial white oppressed are holding a form of supremacy in the palestinians as their victims and to me. This is not just false. It's not just immoral. But it's completely counterproductive to humanize. Both sides erases the history of the region and it uses maximalist claims to ensure that solutions will not occur so just like abolish. The police replaced both calls an legislation for police reform so to have this new language about genocide and ethnic cleansing on the part of israel replaced calls and even attempts to end the occupation which is important and noble goals. Peters do you think it's fair even logical graphs messages than you might have seen at black lives. Matter protests in the us and put it onto the palestinian cause on the one hand of course every world conflict is different There are significant differences enforced between the israeli palestinian conflict between racial america's history of white supremacy But also i think for people to make laurel analogies between different forms of injustice. I mean i. I'm old enough to remember that. The moral analogy between the civil rights movement in the united states and the party movement. Even though the situation africa was in in many ways they're different was important. Way of making people recognize certain very courtroom also remember that in the nineteen nineties. The the historical legacy of genocide ethnic cleansing in europe was an analogy that lead many people including many jews to be very active on the question of of the ethnic cleansing of bosnians in the nineteen ninety. Didn't mean the situation where the same we're not saying but situations can be complicated and nuanced and also be certain simple fundamental morals foods among them. Are that people. Deserve a quality of the law and should not be treated differently based on their race religion ethnicity. And you do see. Fundamentally in his roughhouse palestinians are treated differently than then israeli jews. They have fewer rights because of their religion madison city. So that way. I think there is an important moral analogy to be drawn between situation. The united states where we have our own history of people being treated differently because of inherent wisdom but it seems to me that every critique of how the story about what's going on there is told wants historical needs historical context but then if you lead the story with israeli rockets than it's well. Gaza shot israel. I but then it's what about what happened at the mosque in jerusalem involving israeli police arresting palestinian worshippers. And then it's well. What about nineteen sixty seven borders in one thousand forty eight refugees and soon enough it's a biblical argument about who god gave this land to. Its seems exhausting and endless right by you. I mean i think Matt you just put your finger on why people would much prefer to graft in american racial story onto the middle east than learn the history right than then engage in the moral and ethical and historical and civil rights questions that have plagued the two nations that live in the region..

It's our pleasure. Also with us. Is peter beinart editor at large for jewish currents and author of the beinart notebook on. Welcome back to the show. Peter thanks peter. Have you noticed. Any differences in how the current violence in israel and palestine is being reported and analyzed by the media here compared to previous instances of this violence. Yes i think that they're more palestinian voices that are present in in the kind of mainstream media than i remember. Let's say back in two thousand fourteen or in two thousand two thousand nine with were previous wars between israel and gaza. And i think that's part of a growing recognition in general in the us media about issues of representation. And so i think people have become more self conscious about the fact that palestinians have historically not been very well represented in this mainstream media discussion and then of course on social media. I think you have Even more representation of palestinian voices. And so i think together that does mark a significant shift. I it seems like this is the first major flare up in hostilities. Since the advent of social media being so universal on our lives right. Peter that that must be factoring into all of this. Yeah i suppose. Social media was was around but obviously it's prominence has grown and. I don't think you can divorce the kind of technological changes from the the fact that we have been really in recent years in a moment of real kind of surge of progressive activism across a whole range of issues in a way that was really not the case. Let's say during the obama years and although most of that activism is not around israel-palestine does have implications. I think for the way that people see israel palestine and for the because it it it it. There's a general kind of i would say kind of worldview perspective that does has implications for how people operate on this issue. Let's talk about this. Surge of this progressive worldview when it comes to this particular issue you recently wrote a piece entitled when woke kness comes for israel which criticizes several outlets for their coverage. What are your main issues with the way this has been handled. Yeah so it's funny. I'm not gonna disagree with peter. I actually agree that there was over. The course of the trump administration. What a lot of sociologists have called a great awoke owning And this didn't happen Among communities of colored happening among white liberals and and so. I do disagree with peter. That what we're seeing more palestinian voices. What we're seeing is actually. The mainstreaming of a woke worldview among our white liberals..

"My body right here. Students and teachers forced to put their health and safety at risk. Lots of hooting and hollering.

Currently it's set as at a standard of no more than seven average daily cases of covert 19 per 100,000. Population in order for a school district to reopen K through 12. Well, uh, right now we're still about 50 on average cases per day per 100,000 in San Diego County, and there's no real projection that we're ever going to, even with the vaccine. Never gonna get below 10. So the seven per 100,000 isn't gonna happen. What question has to be asked. How did the governor set that standard? Is it based on science? Is it defensible, particularly when all these other schools across the country are reopened, which with much higher caseloads? They're not seeing transmission rates in the schools or problems in the schools. What is mounting is additional evidence that keeping kids from schools is having a dramatic negative effect on them.
