"I am calling on President Biden to come to El Paso and look at our city and tell us what the solution moving forward is because this right here is unsustainable. I don't see this really going anywhere other than just more sheltered more shelter and more shelter. That's in El Paso city council member, unsustainable. What's unsustainable? There's no crisis. The Biden administration has said right along. The border is not open. What's not sustainable here? Brian mudd in for Mark Levin, talking about incrementalism, the title of 42 decision by the Supreme Court yesterday to where even a win quote unquote for the right and that particular decision simply keeps a status quo crisis in place. And the long game that has long been played, going back to Saul linsky, the rules for radicals days, and they've been executing that playbook to a T over generations. However, I do think amid the many frustrations of this past election cycle, there were some real encouraging signs. Yeah, a lot of them happen from my home state of Florida where it was a record cycle for the right. All time record cycle in the state of Florida for Republicans. But also, across the country going back to last year, school board races where an effort was made. So according to the 1776 pack, starting with those Virginia school board races last year, a hundred school boards across the country, half flipped, from essentially being controlled by teachers unions. Back to parents who are more concerned with, you might say, rating right in rhythmic. Then say, gender fluidity discussions in elementary school. I mean, not that that isn't. Highly educational. We have a 5 year old and you're asking them, are you sure you're really a girl you just you just told it you're one. Let's have this conversation. Maybe it's struggle session over it. Then you can go tell your parents actually don't do that. Let's just go get some surgery. How about that? Anyway, according to the 1776 pack, the success rate for flipping school boards over the past year plus, what do you think it was? When a concerted effort was made at the local level, school boards. What do you think happened? A set of approximately 70 percent. 70% of the time that grassroots efforts were made to flip local school boards, they were success. That's huge. That is success to significance. In my state of Florida, that's part of the success. Governor desantis

"All right, hello, everybody. Welcome to the tons turns radio program. I'm happy to have you with us busy, busy day across America, following a lot of different stories. What's happening along the border is just insanity. Axios now reporting that the Biden administration is bracing for some 14,000 illegals a day and border patrol stations are already overcrowded. Homeland Security overwhelmed and people just don't know what to do. Biden refuses to go to the border. He says he has more important things to deal with and we're talking about millions and millions of people and looking at that from a cumulative standpoint coming into this country and the American taxpayers are having to foot the bill for all of this. I want to go to the patriot mobile news maker line honored to have with us my senator from the great state of Tennessee, senator Bill haggerty, senator hope you're doing good today. Thank you, Todd. I'll always good when I'm on with you. Thanks very much. Wow. Title 42 ending next week and you've got to, you've got legislation ready to go to keep it in place, but the Democrats just don't want that to happen. It has to be frustrating for you. Oh, it's totally frustrating, tada, and you were running through some of the statistics. It's just an absolute humanitarian crisis just last month, 230,000 people that they know of came across that border that doesn't count the highways. You put that into perspective of our home state of Tennessee, that would make the third largest city after national and Memphis 230,000. Think about that if that were a population of one city that slowed in in just one month's time. And as you mentioned, they're up to 14,000. They're talking about 18,000 a day. Once title 42 is fully eliminated. And so I put legislation in place that would address this longer term. You know, title 42 allows the border patrol. It's the last tool that they have in there in their toolkit to address this stuff of humanity coming across the border. It allows them to use a public health crisis as a rationale for turning people back. COVID-19 had served as that public health crisis, but a district judge decided that there's no longer a pandemic. Therefore, they could not rely on this as the reason the health rationale to do it. That's when I thought certainly they would pass mileage station at that point. My legislation is called the stop fentanyl border crossing that. If you think about the health crisis that the fentanyl is creating here in America, it is the number one killer of young people in America between the ages of 18 and 45. It is an existential crisis. I know the Democrats like to talk like that all the time when they're talking about the climate. We have a crisis right at our doorstep and it's hitting us in Tennessee. When I talk with sheriffs across the state to tell me that each month is worse than the month before it in terms of the number of overdoses, the number of deaths, sheriff told me the hardest call they have to make is to a mother or grandmother to let them know that their son or daughter isn't coming home. This is a crisis. And they will not deal with the Democrats would rather look the other way, act as if there is no crisis and continue to flood the border. And for them, it's a numbers game. They're trying to get more people into states that they control. You know where the sanctuary cities are located. Blue states, the more people they can get into those blue states, citizens are not. That increases the number of congressional seats allocated to those states and it increases the number of reluctant votes. This is about power for the Democrats. If they don't mind allowing this sort of disaster to occur, these fentanyl deaths are just blood on Joe Biden's hand. And I can not imagine the fact that he will not even bother to go down there. And it seems to me that the Democrats in Washington would be listening to the Democrats out there across the country and especially those border towns who clearly have a different perspective on things. I want to play some audio and get your reaction. This is an El Paso city council member. An El Paso council member talking about the border crisis there cut too. Right, now what's going on in old school over the weekend, we had 2500 people coming into our city daily. So peace center holds is supposed to hold 1040 people and currently it's over capacity. They have over 5000 people they're waiting at some point those people will be released into El Paso. El Paso is not prepared for it. We do not have an emergency declaration done. But at this point we're days away from title 42 being lifted and it's not, I don't know if it's going to be enough time to mobilize troops to mobilize whomever we need to mobilize to come down to El Paso to help us. Obviously the federal government is not doing their job. Here in El Paso, we've been given the responsibility of the federal government, but this is unsustainable. And that's the problem with it. I mean, if it's bad for a city like El Paso, I can't even imagine what the smaller towns are going through senator..

"To glue your hands to the floor of the car factory, you might want to think about caffeine yourself or at least where you plan to poop. But apparently these geniuses, they didn't think about the future. These are the people who are in charge of the future, actually. We should listen to them about all things with regard to the future. Up because they clearly think about the future, not beyond about 42 minutes. And he said, so this morning, I woke up very, very early with my smallest child. Before we went on a car ride, I asked her if she had to go to the bathroom, because otherwise she might have to go to the bathroom in the car, and she's two and a half. So she said, I will try before I get in the car. She's two and a half and had the foresight to recognize that perhaps before you do a thing that's going to be time consuming, you might want to go to the bathroom or make provision for such. These guys glued themselves to the floor in a hunger strike. So most of that hunger strike was going to be 32 minutes long. Before they had a coffee break, what exactly did they think the lodge? These are the people who think about the future. Probably they should run our energy policy. We should listen to them. Meanwhile, speaking of aspect of corruption, just before the midterm elections. According to the New York Post, the Biden administration pressured the democratic mayor of El Paso, Texas to not declare a state of emergency over the city's migrant crisis due to fear it would make President Biden look bad according to the New York Post. At least three of the El Paso city council's 8 members have urged mayor Oscar Lisa to issue an emergency declaration in response to the thousands of migrants who have filled the city shelters and are being housed in local hotels, sources familiar with the matter said. But Lee's admitted during a private phone conversation last month, he'd been directed otherwise by the Biden administration, according to one of the officials. He told me The White House asked him not to said council member Claudia Rodriguez. Rodriguez also said, Lisa has repeatedly assured her he declare a state of emergency if things got worse without saying exactly what that meant. Just representative Tony Gonzales, Republican of Texas, who's district covers rural areas and border towns near El Paso, also said you heard similar accounts from other city officials. Quote, it's a sleight of hand what the administration is doing. Pressuring the local government's not issue a declaration of emergency to say as if everything is going okay. And Salas also alleged The White House has done the same thing in other parts of my district that you've also seen huge numbers of migrants seeking refuge. Research declined to speak with the post, but senator prepared statement, I don't bow to pressure from any side I make decisions based on current circumstances. Is that really what's going on? By the way, is there a crisis in El Paso? Well, Bill malukan, the fox reporter who, according to Politico, has really ticked off The White House for the great crime of showing what is happening at the border on camera. He tweeted out yesterday about the border crisis continuing El Paso 500 people arriving in just one night in El Paso. Here's what that sounded like.

"He should be cuffed in my pin a yawn. All right, a couple of other big things that I want to get to real quickly before we go into the topic of the day and that is how should people of faith, how should Christians, how should Jews husher Catholics? How should we feel about marijuana use? I am completely opposed to it medicinal marijuana. I think is an oxymoron. I think it's totally stupid. It makes no sense. Another thing in a news Biden looks to codify roe should Democrats win the midterms. All right, so Democrats are not going to win the midterms. So that I doubt that that's even going to be sent to his desk, but this is a sheer sign of desperation. And what the left continues to argue and I just want to prove them wrong with once that what the left continues to argue is that the majority of Americans support abortion at any time of a pregnancy apparently. That's what that's the lie coming from the Democrat party today. Okay, so hat tip daily signal. According to May 2022 CBS poll just 17% of Americans say they think abortion should be legal at any point in pregnancy, just 17% folks, not the vast majority of Americans like the Democrats often claim. Also, a Pew Research poll shows that a similar finding that 19% of Americans say they believe abortion should be legal in all cases. Well, I believe those people are absolutely insane and they need some prayer, but nonetheless, it's a complete lie that the vast majority of Americans are willing to accept abortion at any time. The numbers are complete opposite. The vast majority of Americans believe that there should be some limitation to abortion. You know, some people say 12 week ban, a 15 week ban, even though you may be like me, where I listen, I want, I'm pro life from beginning to end. I want all people to have their babies regardless of the circumstances, but I understand that there's some women that have gone through tragic tragic things where they would ponder the concept of abortion. I get it. I totally get it. I want the baby to be born. I get those situations. So situations are extremely rare. They're extremely rare. They're left likes to pretend. I think they're one, listen, I could be slightly off on this, but I want to say that it's like 1% of the cases out there. Maybe as high as 3%, I've read in the past. Which, listen, would be tragic, but actually I think it was closer to 1% if I recall correctly. But anyway, suffice it to say, when there's incest when there's child rape, those instances are extremely, extremely rare. So Dobbs versus Jackson is now settled law. And by that, listen, I'm just, it's a word game, right? So I'm playing on what the left used to say roe V wade is settled. Well, here's the deal. All of these arguments go back to the states. So essentially women have more power. Because now they can get involved in their political system if they want. And they can fight. If they want to kill babies, they can fight to kill babies. I'm not down for that. White House reportedly asked them mayor not to declare emergency as migrant crossings set records. The White House is pressuring the El Paso, Texas officials, not to declare a state of emergency in the face of mass illegal immigration. The democratic mayor Oscar, I'll say Democrat. I hate saying democratic Democrat mayor Oscar lesser Lisa allegedly told a member of the El Paso city council in a private conversation that The White House has urged him not to declare a state of emergency. Why would they do that? Because they know there is a state of emergency. And they want all Democrats to hold the line. They know that what's happening at the border is absolutely criminal. It's absolutely dangerous. I spoke to you last night about the Mexican cartels and how they're growing so powerful between cash on hand between military weaponry, their corrupting some of the Mexican military and there is a legitimate concern that if these border state wide open, they will be so immersed with cash flow and with military style weaponry. I mean, including drones that can drop bombs on their other enemies of other cartels. They're building tanks. It's insane. These cartels are getting so powerful because they have so much money. So much money, it's insane. If they overtake the central government because they could potentially, if their weaponry and their cash keeps building up, they can bribe military officials, which they have been doing and military officials have sold them equipment that they've been able to bribe corrupt military officials. What if the military decides or the cartels take over the military? And then the cartels say, you know what? We're strong enough to take over the central government of Mexico. So the United States is going to have to deal with us now. And you guys get over 200 million barrels of oil from us every year in the United States. Well, now you're going to have to come to the Mexican cartels to see if you'll get your oil. We also trade auto parts with them. Even more reason it's a huge auto part export business that Mexico has with us. So even more reason for us to manufacture as many things as we can right here within our own borders and to make sure that we seal up that.

We're not going to spend three hours screaming at you. We like to have a conversation here on this on this radio network, broadcasting border to border, coast to coast across the fruited plain, 20 days until the midterm elections and the opportunity for we the people to stop the communist Democrats dead in their tracks. Folks, we've got a great show lined up for you today. Lots of new polling data to get through some big debates last night and we want to get your take on the debates. Our special guest, governor Mike Huckabee is going to be here also former secretary of education Betsy devos is going to join us. Congresswoman Mary Miller from Illinois and Megan basham from the daily wire is going to be here. So an action packed day, but the most important people we ever want to hear from, are you, ladies and gentlemen, the audience of the Todd starns radio program. And I want you to write down our telephone number, you will need this. If you want to call in on the program today, 8 four four 747 88 68, again that's 8 four four 747 88 68. So the big story over at Fox News today is one that I am intrigued by fascinated by and disgusted by. No major city in America has had a greater problem with the illegal alien invasion than El Paso, Texas. They are right there on the border and they have been through holy you know what. So the mayor of El Paso was considering along with the city council to declare an emergency, a state of emergency in the face of the onslaught of the illegal alien invasion. Folks, we're not talking about a few dozen people on a tour bus coming up to Martha's Vineyard. We're talking about tens of thousands of people. Now I want you to put yourself in the shoes of mayor Oscar Lisa, who, by the way, is a Democrat. The White House gave him a telephone call. And they said mister mayor, we understand that you are preparing to declare a state of emergency in El Paso. And he said, yes, that is correct, and then The White House, the Biden White House, the Biden administration, ladies and gentlemen, told this mayor of an American city under siege. They asked him not to do it. Mister mayor, we got to ask you, we're coming up on the election. You gotta help us out here. We can not have a major city controlled by the Democrats declaring a state of emergency. Now, I want to read from the Fox News piece here, a declaration has been expected in recent weeks as the city's immigration struggles have become more prominent on the national level. By the way, have you noticed something about Fox News and their reporting of this specific issue? They're not illegals anymore, right? They're called migrants. That's what they're calling the migrants. The city's immigration. No, it's not the city's immigration struggle. It's the illegal immigration struggle. At least three of the 8 El Paso city council members have already asked leisure to make an emergency declaration. This week, the Biden administration, which has faced enormous political pressure over their two year crisis, announced a combined border operation with Mexico. That operation involves increased checkpoints and more resources to handle the migrant surge. El Paso has launched a new migrant data data dashboard to give a glimpse into the extraordinary numbers the border city is seeing as part of the ongoing migrant crisis racking the southwest border. And they go on from there. But according to the data, I just want you to hear these numbers and you think about this. You people are Gainesville, Georgia, you people, and bartlesville, Oklahoma. You good people in Portland, Maine. I want you to hear this. According to the data. The numbers went from less than 1700 releases per week into the city. That was during the summer, to over 60 800 just last week. The numbers of illegals and border patrol custody has also jumped from fewer than 3000 to over 4500. And here's the money, here's the money nugget. The data shows there are more than 1000 illegals being released into the community every day. Every day. And the city is providing more than 900 meals a day to Hungary illegals. And again, Fox News calls the migrants. They're not migrants Fox News. They're illegal aliens. But I know they're not allowed to say that over at Fox News anymore apparently. So what's going on here? It's very clear to me that Biden administration is putting optics ahead of public safety. We're dealing with some very bad criminals. We're dealing with murderers with robbers, thieves, rapists, you name it, coming across that border. And a lot of these people are straight from the Middle East, so we're also dealing with the possibility of terrorist coming into this country. To do us harm to blow us to kingdom come in the name of the religion of peace. So there's a lot of really bad stuff coming across that border. And the people in El Paso are saying, hey, we got to have some help here. Somebody's got to do something for us. And the Biden administration is saying, no, we're not going to do that. And we're not going to let your local people do that because it would look bad for Democrats going into the midterm elections. That's what's going on here. So all I can tell you, folks, is that elections have consequences and you got to get out and vote on election day. We've got to do what we can do to save these border towns in these communities. And if I were the mayor of El Paso, Texas. I would tell Biden where to stick it on the guacamole. Yes, you heard me guacamole. That's what I would have done. I don't care if he's a Democrat or not. Oh, by the way, have you heard this story? Biden tried to spell spell out a website. You got to hear this cut one. If you get any questionable calls, please tell us by going to report fraud, report trod DOT FTC dot gov. All right, I'm calling this up right now to see where it takes us. It takes me to a place called level three. I don't know what that means, grace maker. FTC ID theft affidavit. Jeez, I'm probably on some watch list now. Yeah, probably. You probably just got a virus on your computer. So he didn't know that it's not like DOT is not mister president. Dot. Words are hard. Yes, they are clearly you say. Oh my word. So folks, look, we're going to take a break here. What is the big concern for you going into the midterm elections? What is your big concern? Is it the invasion of our nation? Is it the economy? What is the big issue facing you and your community as we're going into the midterms? 8 four four 747 88 68 vents are a toll free telephone number that's 8 four four 747 88 68..
