Marjorie Taylor Greene Accuses Chip Roy of Being a Liberal
"Back to there is a conversation that Lara Ingram had with Sean Hannity, a couple of months back. And right when they tossed to the next show. And Lara Ingram was trying to get Hannity on the record for who he supported. And he wouldn't go there. He wouldn't tell you. Well, I'm a talk radio host who has not afraid or ashamed to tell you where I stand on the issues. And I don't believe Kevin McCarthy is the right man for the job. Does that mean that I hate Kevin McCarthy? No. Does that mean that I, that I'm not a conservative? No. But if you listen to the other side, that's exactly what they're telling you. I mean, MTG is completely gone off unhinged now. As a matter of fact, we have some new audio. This is MTG calling out chip Roy, cut number four. You know, chip Roy, who everybody's saying chip Roy's conservative, chip Roy did not object on January 6th to Joe Biden's Electoral College votes. No, he voted for Joe Biden's Electoral College votes. And let me tell you something else. Chip Roy, you know, what else he set out the vote for the January 6th committee. He did not vote against it. He set it out because he was for it. Okay. Well, you know what? A lot of other Republicans voted for to accept the Electoral College votes. Does that make chip Roy a liberal? Is that what is that what Marjorie Taylor Greene is now saying? I mean, this is what concerns me about Marjorie. If you don't agree with her, you're a liberal. This is what she's saying. And we had audio yesterday from MTG, and she was blasting any conservative who stood up to Kevin McCarthy. I don't
Rep. Bob Good: Omnibus Bill Proves What's Wrong With the Swamp
"You did your best to prevent a lump of coal from coming into our Christmas stockings, namely that bloated omnibus bill talk about what you saw as you reviewed that more than 4000 pages in casting your vote. If anything reveals what's wrong with Washington, what's wrong with the swamp cartel, the uni party swamp cartel and why we need transformative change, transformational change to Washington. Why we can not keep doing what we've always done and hoping for somehow some way we're going to get different results. It's what happened on Christmas Eve with the 4000 page plus 7000 plus earmarks $15 billion of the $1.7 trillion spending boondoggle funding the government into September as you know, taking away the leverage that Republicans in the House, the people that representatives and powered by the people with three to 4 million more votes than Democrats got in the election. November 8th, the people spoke, the greatest indication of where the people are, of course, is not the Senate because the disproportionate two per state representation that you have or even the Electoral College, the winner take all for state. But it's the people's representatives in the House that represent most clearly indicate where the American people are. They gave us the power to stop the Biden Schumer agenda in the new Congress and Senate Republicans strip that away in a backroom deal the McConnell mcdaniel, McCarthy deal in the back room by the moderate cartel, if you will, that's running the Republican Party today. Why would we be changed? May this deal, that's a disaster for the American people that just exacerbates all that's wrong with the two years up in full Democrat control. They essentially with Republican help in the Senate extended it 9 months, ten months into the new year stripping away the power that people gave Republicans in the House.
"electoral college" Discussed on WCPT 820
"On the January 6th attack has released its final 845 page report on the insurrection at the capitol And Donald Trump's attempts to overturn the 2020 election. The report finds Trump was the central cause of the violence on January 6th, and that he or his inner circle engaged in at least 200 apparent acts aimed at overturning state election results. The January 6th committee is recommending Congress consider barring Trump and others involved in the insurrection from ever holding public office again, citing the Fourteenth Amendment. The committee is also calling for reforms to the Electoral College certification process and expanded efforts by the government to combat far right and white supremacist groups. We'll have more on the January 6 report after headlines. The Senate has approved a $1.7 trillion omnibus spending package setting up a vote in the House of Representatives today ahead of a midnight deadline to avoid a government shutdown. The Senate bill contains a record $858 billion in military spending about $772 billion for non military programs that earmarks 45 billion in emergency assistance to Ukraine. It does not include a child tax credit expansion, Democrats say would have sharply reduced child poverty and hunger. And ends a pandemic provision that led to record Medicaid enrollment, meaning millions of people will likely be kicked off the public health insurance program this spring. Over 200 million people across the
The 'Populist Threat to Democracy' With Mike Benz
"Back with Mike Benz who is detailing for us how the foreign policy establishment rotated its gun turrets from foreign nations regime changes abroad to America to rid America of that populist threat to democracy as they saw it my former boss, the 45th president of the United States, president Trump. We are discussing this document. How they gained, they did the war game to prevent president Trump from maintaining control, preventing a disrupted presidential election and transition run by rosa Brooks with John Podesta playing a Biden from the transition integrity project. Talk to us about the ramifications of the scenarios, how they would have affected this, the role of BLM, the role of unions. This was truly a war plan, was it not Mike? Well, yes, and what's really disturbing is that it happened in tandem with all the censorship measures in order to essentially provide a buffer for what was laid out here. So you had it this scenario three, which is the most offensive of the four scenarios because it involved the scenario planners explicitly acknowledging that Trump where the scenario was Trump winning an Electoral College victory. How to still get Biden to be the president of the country. And they basically pursued three strategies in the simulation. One was to not send Democrat electors on the January 6th ratification. Two was to get blue state blue states like California, Oregon, and Washington to threaten to secede unless Trump stepped down. But then third, and perhaps most disturbingly, and this is 5 months before November 2020, before the election day was virtualized quote racial justice activists from the Black Lives Matter protest communities and to have candidate Biden issue a call to the streets so that BLM could serve as street muscle to shut down infrastructure and transportation.
Gerrymandering Committee Proved Ineffective for Republicans
"I learned that the Republicans put a committee together To look at gerrymandering in the states and who among others was on this committee This guy seems to be behind everything and is a serial loser For us conservatives in the Republican Party Who was behind this too Cut 7 go They've vaccinated A senior editor at the nonpartisan cook political report said that New York's proposed map was such an effective gerrymander that it only wasted democratic votes in a few isolated places Even then we're stopped there for a second So it judges looked at this and told New York to fix it they really wouldn't and so they throw it out So it turns out New York turned out well But the rest of the country other than Florida in New York turned out very poorly for the Republicans Very poorly Go ahead It's a brutal map for Republicans Our guys just don't get it And I don't know about you but I felt relieved I thought were Lee when I saw Karl rove I think it was one of the Sunday shows where it's not mine I don't really remember it It was on one of the Sunday shows Because we all know Carl rove is the architect It was the architect of the 2006 Senate blowout by the Democrats And the great victory By George W. Bush in 2000 Which was ultimately decided via the Electoral College Nonetheless he's apparently on some committee that is helping to fight on the gerrymandering issue mister Purdue so that scares the crap out of me
Darren Beattie: The Timing of the Jan. 6 Bomb at RNC
"Darren Kamala Harris who at the time was the vice president elect In January 5th January 6th that time period right there this is a big deal This is the day they're going to count the votes right The Electoral College votes Kamala Harris went to the DNC So if there's video of a bomber placing a live explosive device there like we were told early on then how is it that EOD the explosive teams and the canine units which unquestionably would have unquestionably would have swept the location How come they didn't find it Well that's a great question And you're pointing at one of the many many mysteries It just doesn't add up about the pipe bombs First of all the RNC bomb which is the one that was found under very bizarre circumstances a random pedestrian founded at 1240 with exactly 20 minutes left on the dial So that conveys the precise impression that it was set to go off at one which is when the official certification proceeding was meant to begin So if that random pedestrian hadn't randomly found it at any other minute it wouldn't have given that exact impression Furthermore it was almost precisely timed to the initial assault on the west perimeter of the capitol In fact the capitol police responded to the initial assault one minute the capital police responded to the pipe bomb call one minute before the assaults on the perimeter So the time it was so precisely aligned that the head of the casual police side the pythons must have been there for a diversion The only thing is the diversion could only have worked if someone discovered the RNC bomb exactly when they did and perhaps even more importantly it could have only worked if someone did not find the DNC bomb prematurely Remember these bonds were allegedly planted the evening before
Plato Tried to Warn Us About Democracies
"Guys read in great detail? What Plato tried to warn us about when it came the democracy? Dictatorships naturally arise out of democracies. And you're going to see that happening in Brazil with this left wing leader. The Electoral College is one of the mechanisms which helps spread power over geography. It protects the country from sectionalism, it perfects the country from the urban masses. A political movement that dominates in just one area can force its will on an entire country. The Electoral College necessitates balance. And so now Brazil is going to have this far left wing Marxist take power. So look, Bolsonaro was and is a nationalist. He was a great president. He did a really good job in Brazil. Bolsonaro was very popular. Except in one region where Lula ran up the score. And Lula is a very left wing candidate. He's going to open up the prisons and make Brazil even more dangerous. But thankfully, we're not a democracy. They say Brazil is a democracy. Now, I would love for anyone to come on this program and show me a prosperous, safe, democracy right now in America. I say, oh, France, Germany. You think Germany is a prosperous country? They might be temporarily rich, but it's just a matter of time. And by the way, Germany does not respect freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of religious conscious, they don't at all. Why would they? They're not a republic. They're a democracy. It's about whoever gets the most amount of stuff.
How Brazil Got California'd
"Is making some international headlines. For now, unfortunately, displacing the great leader hare Bolsonaro, so look, in Brazil, they have an interesting system. They have a straight popular vote system. And if Brazil had an Electoral College Bolsonaro would have won. So I know very little about Brazil politics. I know probably more than an average American, but I'm far from an expert on it. But there's different regions in Bolsonaro one, every single region, except what is in Portuguese called the nordeste region, of which I don't know where that is. I'm guessing that is the most populated area of the country. And so or yeah, if it's northeast, and I don't know what, I guess that would be, I don't know what, I guess that's the population center. I can't imagine Rio de Janeiro's in the northeastern part of the country as per they describe it. Okay, it's not, but he won it in a big way, I guess. So if you look at the percentages, though, if you win 70, 30 in that one portion of the country, then you are able to basically run the table. It's basically like just winning California 75, 25, and then you become president. You
Why Democracy Is a BAD Idea
"See the Electoral College is a Republican idea. Not a Republican Party idea, but a small R republic idea. The American founders were extremely wise. The constitution spreads power across branches of government. But it also spreads over geography and time. This is what makes a republic different than a democracy. I have been on the record and I'll say it again. Democracy is a bad idea. We are not a democracy. Democracy is unsustainable. They always say our democracy, our democracy, our democracy, we're not a democracy, and we never should be a democracy. Democracy is fold very quickly. In fact, you can go back to numerous citations of ancient wisdom. About the warnings of democracy. Look, it's very difficult to take over the American political system on a whim or a passing political moment. Think about Floyd a palooza during the summer of 2020. You need to convince voters in different states with different backgrounds, demographics, needs, jobs, economic concerns, to work in harmony together. This system has worked very well the preserve our freedom and liberty. You see a republic is designed to pursue liberty, which is the pursuit of virtue to protect liberty, which is the pursuit of virtue. That's what a republic is good at. A democracy is good at giving away a lot of free stuff and then giving you a tyrant.
What Is the Left Doing to Former Sheriff Carolyn Bunny Welsh?
"Involved in election integrity issues. What is the left trying to do to you now, Carolyn? Well, I've been attacked over the last few years on a county level that on a state level and recently the FBI knocking at my door. But I think that was because I was an elector in the Electoral College. But I think what their purpose Sebastian is is to silence you. It doesn't matter how they do it. It doesn't matter if they do it on a local level, trying to attack you and of course the press works with them to try to smear you. It doesn't matter if they try to go after your good name and your integrity or agency. It's to silence you. And to make you stop speaking out. And the way they did that to me over the last few years on every level was to attack, to even charge, I ended up with two misdemeanors believe it or not. And to begin to make you fearful of speaking.
Former Sheriff Carolyn Bunny Welsh on Her Support for Trump
"We do not apologize for our love of law enforcement. The boys and the gals in blue, one of whom came up to me during our battleground talkers tour. We thank everybody who secured our facilities, kept the crazies at bay. She is the former sheriff of Chester County, Caroline bunny, Welsh. Welcome to America first. Well, thank you so much, Sebastian, and let me tell you that event the other night with you and Chris de Gaulle and Mike Gallagher and Dennis prager, you talk about a manhood hour that was it. That was the testosterone levels were pretty high. I hope they weren't overwhelming. You came up to me. We got a few selfies. We chatted with the offices of warminster who were looking after us. But then you said that you have been going through some interesting times in part thanks to your support of my former boss president Trump, so schaff Welsh walk us through the last few years for you what you did for president Trump and what the left is trying to do to you. Well, I was involved with president Trump and supported him from the moment he came down the escalator. I thought he was amazing and was sure he was the right answer and God's answer to our country. I got very involved. I was then involved with the national sheriff's association. I became the vice chair of America's sheriff for Trump. I was also appointed by the president to the advisory board national advisory board for women for Trump. And I was very prominent. I was a delegate in the convention at 2016. I was an elector in the Electoral College in 2016. I was also a delegate and an elector in 2020. So that put me very prominently and many visits to The White House. Why did you and your fellow leos your fellow law enforcement officers have such a good relationship with my old boss? I will tell you why. He was after he was inaugurated in January. One of the first meetings he had was with law enforcement. I was one of the ten sheriffs, all of the other agencies, chiefs of police, FOP. He invited us for a private meeting in the Roosevelt room. There were about 30 of us. And he sat Sebastian and really listened to what we wanted to say.
"electoral college" Discussed on The Larry Elder Show
"More than California, New York and Texas should be allowed to decide the presidency. Here's where Hillary Clinton screwed up. You guys remember what she did and she campaigned in the bigger states. And she ignored the swing states. That's why her behind loss. And that's what she gets. Essentially, it wasn't just the states she ignored their people. How can you be a president of the entire United States when you say I'm going to ignore some of the people in the United States, you can't be. You can't be an effective one you can't be a good one, right? And that's why Hillary Clinton that was a hard lesson that she learned and really she didn't learn it because then she complained that she's an election denier, right? She complained that she didn't win. She didn't lose. It was Russia collusion, right? We all know that was a complete lie. But if California, New York now, Florida and Texas were the only places to decide on the election, if we had a popular vote, it would suck. It would suck for, you know, 46 states, right? They would never have a say in the election. Despite they could bring, I don't know what they bring to the economy. I mean, think of it. California has a lot of farms and a lot of growers, but you look at a place like New York, I know New York has some farms and they do their own agriculture. Every state does have some form or another, but I don't know what they produce. You know, North Dakota may be sending something to New York that they don't produce or wherever. I don't know, New Mexico, whatever. Wherever. Every one of these states are so are so important. They're in so integral. So even these big states, whether it's Florida, where there's things that we have to ship in from other states, there's things that New Yorkers have to ship in. There's things that Californians have to ship in from other states. And so we all need, we all need each other. And although there may be bigger populations in the states, it doesn't mean that they're more important. So they should have their say in their states, but what they should not be able to do is to determine the presidency for all people because just it may be maybe in their best interest to have a Joe Biden and The White House, New York, California, not Texas, and Florida for sure. But it's not in everyone's best interest. And we want to hear from everybody from the lowest man and woman on the totem pole to the most elite to be honest with you. And the way that we do that is to secure the Electoral College and to make sure that New York and Texas and I'm sorry, California, and Florida, aren't the only ones that are deciding the elections. Fewer voices would fewer voices would be heard not more. If we were to get rid of the Electoral College. So yeah, you would have this popular vote, but essentially the only people that would decided, again, California, New York, Texas, and Florida, the 50. The popular vote is un American. And the left knows this. They know this. Proponents of the popular vote movement support it because they know it was silenced the voices of anyone who disagrees with Marxism. And that's where we're headed now. That's where that's where the Democrat party is. I'm telling you and I'll share this tonight conservatives and maybe I will change the name. This is what the guy challenged in an article. We need to stop calling ourselves conservatives was the name of the articles. We're revolutionary in a sense. We're radicals in a sense. We're restorationists in a sense. And I like the word restorationist. But the popular vote is un American. It's absolutely un American. And right now, we live in a cultural Marxism. The left has done a bang up job with cultural Marxism. You get all these woke corporations and all this stuff bowing the knee to the federal to the federal government. I mean, it's pretty scary. You get Hollywood. It's pretty insane where we are now. The DoJ is the enforcement law enforcement arm of the Democrat party and the Biden administration right now. We're in a scary place. So the typical conservative, we like to think of government as government should be small. But government should do some things effectively. And I'm sorry, this is a Christian nation, a judeo Christian nation. And I think we should restore some of the ideals that make this country great. And we should be willing to use the government to do it. I don't want over taxation, you know, I don't want to come down on liberals and use the DoJ like they do against us. That's not what I'm talking about. But maybe no fault divorce making it harder to get divorced..
"electoral college" Discussed on The Larry Elder Show
"It's fascinating for me that anyone votes for the Democrat party today. Actually, the pop earlier vote is if when you solely is undemocratic. Contrary to what Eric holder said, because it would cause candidates to ignore a large portion of blue collar working areas, rural areas, even in larger states or larger populated states like New York or California. And that's exactly what the founders did not did not want. Eric holder doesn't care about this. But I do. In an article back in 2009, daily signal, it was an article entitled. It was written by daily signal entitled effort to abandon Electoral College gain steam. Here's what it would ruin for America. Jared statman pointed out that the founding fathers disagreed on many things, but the Electoral College actually is what received the most widespread acceptance. So we should be embracing not abandoning the Electoral College. So what I'm going to quickly do is go through 6 reasons why we should be fighting to restore our faith in the Electoral College and make sure that we are fighting for it. And make sure that we're getting ahead of the left, I mean, the left is tearing every vestige of Americana down to the best of their ability. I mean, they are trying to, I mean, just reshape history. All this revisionist history tearing down statues, all of this kind of stuff. The goal is to wipe out all vestiges of American history and then just create their own history. And their own image to totally tear down America. What country in the world has been more successful than the United States of America? None. But if we take for granted the institutions that were put in place, then we're going to lose it. And I'm sorry, those that claim that these institutions are systemically racist. I would ask them to show me a place around the United States somewhere in the United States where blacks and minorities fare better. I would ask them to answer the question why is it that people from all across the world when they want to flee tyranny? Where do they come? They come to the United States. Why is that? The left can't answer those questions. They can't. All right, so some of you may not know this, but the Electoral College helped to end slavery in America. That's right. President Abraham Lincoln, our first Republican president and the signer of the Emancipation proclamation that freed the slaves. He won the Electoral College. He lost the popular vote. Listen to why he lost the popular vote. He lost a popular vote because slave states in the south wouldn't put his name on the ballot. Right? So if he, they wouldn't put his name on the ballot. So he simply lost the popular vote. But he won the Electoral College. That should tell us something about American history, too, right? It tells us there were more areas around the country at the time that wanted slavery abolished as well. But concentrated in the south, they didn't. So they didn't put his name on the ballot. There's no telling how long it would have taken to eradicate slavery in America. If we didn't have the Electoral College, that's the first thing. The second thing. The Electoral College embraces true state diversity. I love this. One of America's greatest attributes is our recognition of the geographical, the agricultural and the cultural diversity that exists from state to state. For example, if you travel to New York. Now, one traveled to New York. Now, I'm not even going to lie to you. Because I think it's gotten so violent. Hey, Lee zeldin is making a strong run for that governorship. Make sure you donate to his campaign. He can use all the help all the help that he can get. I want New York to be the place that it was under Rudy Giuliani, where people felt safe to live there and to travel there and to see the sites, man. I've never traveled to New York. It absolutely upsets me that I did not go when Giuliani was the mayor or even when Bloomberg, even a little socialist that he was when he was the mayor because it was a lot safer place, right? So I wish I would have gone then. I am not going unless Zelda gets elected and they get rid of Bragg and I think they need to get rid of New York City, mayor Eric Adams, I understand he's going to be in for a few more years, but the guy is just he's a complete and utter joke crime hasn't lessened under him. It's worse under his control. But one of the unique things about that Electoral College is it does embrace true state diversity. So think of New York. All my homies in New York. You traveled to New York. All the things that people talk about, you know, you eat the best hot dogs. You eat the best, you eat the best pizza, the mentality of people, not necessarily the friendliest place. People always say a bold and, you know, people, they can't be a little rude, but that's their thing. You know, Yankees game, visiting Times Square, the 9 11 memorial, which is about to come to an end sadly. You can mourn at the 9 11 memorial or you could have. And man, but you can, in the evening, you could go and check out a play on Broadway. I mean, just a cultural juggernaut, right? So this is absolutely cool, but that's New York. But what about if I wanted to travel to Arizona? If I wanted to travel to Arizona, I would want to take in and enjoy the uniqueness of the desert. The cactus even, the animals that exist there. I would want to enjoy a hike in the Grand Canyon. Check out the check out the Hoover Dam. What I don't want is for every state to become New York. What I don't want is for every state to become California. And I understand that all of these states would still have, you know, from Arizona, just describe the desert, whereas in New York, you don't have a desert, but you don't want the same type of philosophy. You don't want the same type of ideology. You want the people that appreciate Arizona for it. What it is, you want the people that appreciate New York for what it is because when you travel from Arizona, to New York, you want to as an American experience a different experience. This is what makes America so cool every state is its own laboratory. Absolutely love that. You might want to see something of the Native American cliff dwellings that exist in Arizona. All of these states are unique. We don't want them all to be California. California and New York seem to be running in the same way. And they just seem the same. Crime is out of control. You know, drugs, all this, all this stuff that leftism has wrought because they don't respect their states. They're not saving their states from their own ideology. They don't appreciate their states. The beauty of their states in my opinion. And this is one of the things that I adore about the Electoral College. I don't think anybody ever speaks of it in this way. But when I travel, I want a different experience. I want to experience different people. If there's more liberals in New York, I don't care. I don't hate liberals. I'd love to go to New York as long as it's safe. Because I want to check out their culture. But I want to be able to go to Texas. I want to be able to go to Arizona. If those are slightly more red, as long as the people are friendly and they are, I want to see the differences there. I don't want to Gavin Newsom running Texas and a Gavin Newsom running California. Or a hulk or running New York in a running California or a running Montana. I want a difference. I want to feel the difference when I go to a different state. And that's what the Electoral College allows us to do. It allows us to experience true state diversity, the third thing. The Electoral College preserves the power of the states. AKA, that's what's known as federalism. I don't know why they call it federalism. It does seem like a weird weird, man, I can't say it. Weird word when you think of states instead of the federal government. But nonetheless, that's what it is. Mike Lee, a few years back, he was at a cpac and he said, we need to rebalance the power between the three branches of government by and I quote sending power back to where it belongs, which is with the people. If too much power resides in the hands of too few people in Washington D.C., states will no longer remain the laboratories of freedom that are forefathers intended. See, we don't want too much concentrated power in the hands of a few people in Washington, D.C.. We all know that let's be honest, all right? I'm not trying to be mean. I think everybody knows this. Joe Biden is dumb as a box of rocks, all right? The guy is a complete and utter complete and utter moron. Should he have the power to be able to tell every state what they should do, how they should handle things. Even this is outside of the bounds of a state. But I listen to a part of a statement written statement that he had made, I believe, concerning Liz truss, where he adamantly agreed disagreed with her financial policy. She's out. I mean, she was in and out as UK prime minister 45 days before she resigned. I mean, she's still there. She's going to hold on until someone takes her place. But he was criticizing her fiscal policies. This moron, he can't even balance a checkbook. I doubt. All he knows how to do is be corrupt and use his crackhead son to make money. Do we really want this guy? One person, especially as dumb as Joe Biden, being able to tell every state what they should do, the Electoral College preserves the power of each state, each state should have the power to decide what's best for them. Arizonans know what's best for them better than New Yorkers do. Vice versa for New Yorkers. But, you know, the same is true for California, Florida, what have you. We want to keep that state power. For instance, states that flirted with socialism and have been fiscally irresponsible with their budgets, California has New York has, should we have to build these states out? We did that with California. Listen, the only reason California has a surplus of money or had. And I think that's running out. It's simply because they get an infusion of cash or influx of cash. I should say when Biden became president because they weren't doing as well when Trump was president. Why? Because we weren't giving them a lot of money for the federal government. We were letting them, okay, these are the policies that you want to live by in California fine. Live by them and see what happens. They were going freaking bankrupt. And then Biden gets in and gives them all of this cash, plus they have a legal aliens coming in and using cash and so, you know, they had some extra cash. But it has nothing to do with their policies, their policies, Gavin Newsom, and the Democrats policy suck. Then you have Vermont and Massachusetts. They tried socialized healthcare. Remember, Romney care, and it was an absolute failure. So states should have the opportunity to learn from their own mistakes. Instead of imposing a mass like ObamaCare system like we have now, Medicare for All, like we have now onto the entire onto the entire country. If people want socialized medicine, they should be able to move to a state. That is willing to practice socialized medicine, but people that want freedom of medicine. I think we should have that opportunity where people say, listen, I can travel again across county lines, city lines, even state lines to buy insurance. If it's going to make it cheaper, and I should have the opportunity to travel and see any doctor I want, whether that doctor is a mile away, whether that doctor is ten miles away, I should be able to go to any doctor that I want. So the third thing that Electoral College does, it preserves the power of the states, the fourth thing..
"electoral college" Discussed on The Larry Elder Show
"America. We're living in a post Christian America. And I was challenged. I got to tell you last night it was an officer Tatum's program show and I read through Dennis prager's one of his columns that he'd written in the last two weeks just entitled explaining conservatism and he did it well. Obviously, as Dennis prager always does and he talked about liberty. That's the most, that's the thing that we fight for, one of the most important things that we fight for. Free speech is the most important thing that we fight for. You talked about conservatives, our values, as far as life, that's a very important thing that we fight for. And all of this is true. But it's also true, I think, that we are living in a post again constitutional America. So we've got an uphill battle and it's important for Christians. I'm sorry. It's important for all people of faith to be honest with you. I'm not apologizing for being Christian. I just believe that all people of faith are religious people need to band together and fight against the left so that we can restore religious freedom inside of the United States and so that we can restore the working class, the middle class. We have so many people going to college and being brainwashed that we are literally hollowing out our middle class. Mike Rowe talked about this in a recent interview that he had done with megyn Kelly on her on her show or podcaster, what have you where so many men are being beat up? He said where, you know, in the I think it was a late 70s. They started talking about the academia did media started ushering everybody into college and as a result they stopped building up and talking about the metal shops and the wood shops that we had in high school and in junior high at the time and we've gotten rid of those and as a result you get a bunch of lazy people sitting on their butts, they go to college, you know, they get brainwashed into leftism. They feel entitled, they think they should have a $100,000 job as soon as they graduate college, and they avoid jobs where they get their hands a little dirty, but they where they can make an amazing income. All right, so one of the things that I do want to talk about, I don't hear a lot of people talking about it because it's not a sexy topic, but it is going to be sexy and fun here. And that is the Electoral College system. I've even heard some conservatives say, maybe we should consider getting rid of the Electoral College system. And we should go to a popular vote. That is really dumb. That is really dumb, really dumb, dumb dumb. Listen, I'm so tired of people that I don't care what side of the aisle they're on. I'm tired of people that don't accept the brilliance of our founding fathers. I mean, these people sat about sat around and thought about this stuff, I shouldn't say sat around. But they thought about this stuff for years. They researched for years. They weren't consumed by social media. They weren't consumed by television. These are people that were able to work hard and to think a lot, all right? So they didn't have all of the electronics that we have at our disposal. But these were people that thought about freedom. These are people that thought about God. Clearly, I don't think there's many people alive today that are on par with the founding fathers. I think there are a few that exist within the United States, but listen, if they design the system, I think we should best figure out, okay, why did they design this particular system? What makes it so important? These were people that were escaping a monarchy or leaving behind a monarchy. If we don't want to go back there, we should find out every single aspect of why they created the Electoral College. I won't get into all of that detail, but suffice it to say, if you listen to dams, our Democrats, in particular, they'll tell you, listen, the Electoral College, it's irrelevant. It's out of date. It's undemocratic, all of this kind of good stuff. And the truth is they'd like to bypass this institution, simply because it's easier for them to implement their Marxist agenda. And that's what it's all about. Ultimately getting rid of the Electoral College is about control. It is about a centralized government. Back in his column, explaining conservatism, Dennis prager, he said this regarding the electoral college, let me just read this.

Here he is again. You know, it's a remarkable thing that anybody out there believes that Donald Trump won an election that he lost by more than 7 million votes in which Joe Biden beat him three O 6 to two 32 in the Electoral College in. It is amazing that you have someone who's married to a Supreme Court. Justice who is, you know, continues to promote the big lie. But of course, that is her absolute First Amendment right to do so and anybody can go out and make an idiot out of themselves by claiming that the Easter Bunny is real, that Santa Claus is real and Donald Trump is the real president. What did I read 61% of Republicans think Joe Biden was not legitimately elected? That's where we're at in this country. Yeah. Okay. Maybe oh, can we skip to 17? Maybe it's because this idiot is not in prison and still out saying things like this. But I'm afraid we have never had, and I don't believe. I don't believe we'll ever have a fair election again. I don't believe it. Yes, so there's obviously no need to register a vote if you are a Republican. Listen to your dear leader. Oh my God. And then hate a little shout out to Jenny.

Border Patrol Veteran Details the Chaotic Immigration Situation
"Dean, let's just begin with absolute basics. I mean, I'm assuming we have immigration laws that set out a procedure for how you can come into the United States. I mean, I'm a first generation immigrant myself. I started out by coming as an exchange student. I then got a student Visa to go to college, then a practical training Visa in order to work temporarily in the country. I applied for and got a green card, and then over time I naturalized and became a U.S. citizen. So that is the a pathway, not the only pathway but kind of a standard pathway. What is the Biden administration's stated rationale for allowing people into this country who have not been given a Visa not been granted asylum, but nevertheless they're letting them in. How can they justify openly flouting existing immigration laws? Well, vice president Harris gave an interview pretty recently stating that their goal, the goal of all of this is to provide a pathway to citizenship for all of these illegal aliens. That's one of their goals. And I think there's another ulterior motive, but it's part of a long-term strategy. And that strategy to me involves the 2030 census. So if you can increase the number of aliens that are coming into these blue cities, then you're talking about the redistribution of reapportionment of U.S. representatives and electors to the Electoral College. That's their long-term goal. Plus, you get the base of voters, more U.S. citizens that are from these countries. And they will be voting, of course, Democrat.

I will not stand by and watch elections in this country, stole all my people who simply refuse to accept that they lost. Shall we go into the wayback machine mister Biden to just 5 years ago when Hillary Clinton and most Democrats were claiming that somehow Donald Trump and Russia Russia stole the election from Hillary Clinton for 5 years we've been told that president Trump was an illegitimate president. They launched two bogus impeachments all based upon lies because they didn't feel he was a legitimate president that he couldn't have won because Hillary's poll numbers showed she was winning. She had to have won. They had to have been cheated. We heard that for 5 years. And yes, Democrats refused to certify the election of the Electoral College because they believed that Trump had stolen the election. We don't have to go far back in history. Just 5 years to a Democrats spewed that nonsense and now we're being told that if you spew that nonsense today, you're a threat to the republic. And

"Months. And what it does is it really shores up this very obscure, poorly worded, confusing law from 1887 called the electoral count act. And that is the legislation that basically governs how we left in a president from each state choosing electors until the vice president on January 6th counting the Electoral College votes before Congress. And so what they did is they, you know, Donald Trump used the vagueness of that law to exploit the law. To try to overturn the election and the senators came out with a bill to try to really shore that up. And among them, it makes it very clear that the role of the vice president is just ceremonial. His job or her job is just to count the Electoral College votes on January 6th. They do not decide if they accept or reject those Electoral College count votes and so that is a big thing, but it also does similar things to ensure, like you said, January 6th doesn't happen again. Is this pretty much on a track to become law? It's another piece of legislation where leader McConnell has refused to comment senator Schumer also has refused to comment, but all indications are. Senators who have been working on this senator Collins and senator Manchin have been in touch with both leaders office throughout this process. And it seems

Trump Proofing the Presidency With Comedian Hal Sparks
"Well, it's interesting. I want to get your take out. I mean, we talked about this Trump proofing the presidency. Jamie Raskin is pushed colleagues on the House select committee to ditch the Electoral College to protect future presidential elections against the subversion that Trump and his allies tried to pull off in 2020. Adam Schiff has indicated his agreement, but is more focused on reforming the electoral count act, which dictates the timeline for states to appoint electors and for them to subsequently cast their presidential votes, Liz Cheney and Zoe lofgren are also working on that. But I mean, if they had done their job and impeached him so he couldn't run again, but because they didn't do that, right? And remember Mitch McConnell said, you're having gotten away with anything. Yeah. There are courts. I mean, they're hoping they keep punting it going, well, we can't do it. Because the crazy Trump voters, but the DoJ, I mean, basically Mitch McConnell said, the DoJ should do it. He hasn't gotten away with anything. That's what we have criminal courts for. Oh no, not impeachment. And now here's one. Here's one thing that could solve a lot of this, whatever. Pass a law that gives it automatically 5 years in jail if you fraudulently vote on purpose and ten years if you deny someone their vote. Per charge, individual. If you stop anyone from voting or limit their ability to vote, artificially willfully and knowingly by brooming them from the electoral rolls or any of that kind of stuff, every person you do that to automatic ten years. And, you know, Trump was going to do it about monuments about statues automatic ten years if you wreck a statue will wrecking someone's right to vote in the greatest democracy on the planet, arguably would be something that would matter on that same scale. And I think it's one of those things where Republicans would have a hard time. They'd vote against it. The freedom caucus would vote against it. All these people would freak out because they know that they're the ones actually committing the fraud every time it's found. You find Republicans at the

"Well, if you don't actually agree to have any kind of inspection, if you say I'm just buying it, cash deal, sign on scene, then how much recourse do you really have? Well, that's the question here in this particular case. Typically the courts would be like, yeah, you know, good luck. This is what you signed up for, but in Elon's case, he's really making a lot of noise. His concern is that there are more than 5% bots on Twitter. I think they're probably are. I know the company tries to cut down on those bonds, but I have a feeling that Elon might be onto something that there are a lot of fake accounts. And so his point is, look, I had to go off of your SEC filings. If you lied in the SEC filings and I really shouldn't have to be on the hook for this. And I'm starting to think, you know, maybe there's, there may be a path for him to get out of this deal. I don't know if he can get out of the $1 billion breakup fee, but if he's able to somehow prove that the company was lying on its earnings results and lying with the data that it provided to investors all along. I mean, that's a pretty big story, right? And that puts Twitter in a whole bunch of other problems because you can't lie on the quarterly filings. And if, in fact, it turns out that's the case. I suspect he should have a right to walk away. I mean, again, tricky only because only because he has said, you know, I'm doing this deal. I'm not doing anything due diligence. But this one is kind of weird. This one is, I mean, you can not lie. You can not lie to the SEC. Anyway, we'll see how it all shakes out. I do want to point out that shares of Twitter are getting hammered today earlier in the session, they were off about 5% as investors tried to grapple with all this. I do want to say that they've come back significantly since then at 39, 51 cents a share down 1.6%, but still 39 51, that's a far cry from the 54 20 that he was promising. What we may find is that given all his threats to terminate the deal, his threats to constantly walk away from this at some point, the company may say, you know, it's not worth a headache. I was going to deal with this anymore. And so, okay, we'll take a little bit of a discount. We'll negotiate a cheaper price and then Elon wins the day. Anyway, if nothing else, there's, I think, been some exposure of Twitter, it's not what some people might think it to be in light of some of these bots. Again, we need to see more information. I want the information, Twitter doesn't want to give them the information. And so this is why his lawyer, I believe it's skadden, actually, his lawyer had to fire off a letter to Twitter saying, look, you know, you give us this stuff or else. And I get it. So we're going to continue following the Twitter thing. I think it's looking increasingly likely. He might actually get a better deal. He might actually get a better deal. I just want to double check that on the, yeah, it's skadden. So that's the law firm representing I'm sure that they're tearing their hair out right now, but he's got to get what he needs to get for this company. He needs to get the price he wants in order to hopefully make this into something. I still say this that the entire landscape needs this shake up and he may just be the guy to do it because he's clearly thinking outside the box in ways that we haven't seen in a while in this field. And so I would hope that having him in there is actually going to be eventually a good thing for the industry.

"York and California, and maybe Texas deciding everything. All right, I want to move on to another story regarding Elon Musk because he sure making life AG double L for those that own shares of Twitter right now. Probably employees. And a few bankers and lawyers in between. But before we get to Elon and Twitter, as I talk about, you know, protecting institutions like the Electoral College or the Supreme Court, I just want to give a brief shout out to a wonderful organization that I think you should look at joining. It's called a Mac. The association of mature American citizens. And this is a group that is devoted to making sure that these institutions still have merit. And that our freedom and our faith and our values are protected. And so that's a pretty important cause they're out there looking out for all Americans, both in Washington, D.C., and throughout the country, and they're doing this with your help. In fact, as for $16, $16 a year, I thought it was $16 a month. I think I said that a few weeks ago on the show. And I'm like, wow, no, no, it's only $16 a year for $16 a year. You can be part of this group. Amac dot U.S. slash Regan, my last name, Regan REG and you can be part of this group and you get all kinds of discounts on things from cell phone plans to travel, meaning restaurants, and hotels. It's a great organization. They can help you find, for example, the right retirement plan, perhaps the right healthcare plan. And they're doing this while working with like minded Americans who believe in ensuring that all Americans will have this access to prosperity. So wonderful organization, I really encourage you to take a look. WWW dot a Mac U.S. slash Regan, the association mature American citizens, I'd love for you to become a member or maybe just renew your membership again today. So again, amak U.S. slash Regan. All right, turning to Elon because he's quite a character. I love him. I think the guy is brilliant. I would be nervous as a Twitter shareholder right now. I think the deal eventually gets done. I'm not so sure it's going to go at 54 20, though. I've said before, you know, it kind of has to because he signed all these agreements, waving his right to due diligence and historically, deals. They always happen. And the only one I can think of is Tiffany, where they were able to negotiate a little bit of a discount after having signed all the paperwork, but in this particular situation, you have a, you have an entrepreneur gifted entrepreneur that is now saying, wait a second. This is not what I signed up for. Now, I've in the past said, you know, I don't know how much of a leg he really has to stand on only because it's like, you know, if you go and buy a house, see your neighbor's house, and it looks fantastic and you say, I don't need to look at the guts of the house.

"America. I'm talking about article two section one clause three, which provided the original plan for our Electoral College. Now, this means little states like the one I grew up in, New Hampshire, you know, I don't have that many electoral votes compared to say Texas or California, but we're still relevant. We're still relevant because of the Electoral College. We wouldn't be at all. I mean, no candidate would bother coming to New Hampshire. Right? Or Rhode Island or Vermont or any of these little New England places because it just wouldn't be worth it. You'd want to spend all your time in California and in New York and in Texas in these big populous centers, but one of the things that makes us special is that our presidents have to answer to all the people in all the little corners of the country. Sure, California has more electoral votes and certainly New Hampshire, but New Hampshire is still relevant. And that's I think one of the best, the best things about this system. And if you destroy that, then you're disenfranchising so many people in this country. Now, the Democrats would argue, look, it's seen its day, it's not relevant anymore because we want to make sure that every single vote counts and in that sense you can't have an Electoral College because that means that some people, like in New Hampshire, they would say are being unfairly overrepresented. As you look back in history, haven't had a perfect relationship between whoever wins the popular vote and whoever actually becomes president of the United States and I was doing my research. It was what 1824 1876 1888 in the year 2000 and then of course, in the year 2016, where again that happened in which you did not have the president in the United States actually winning the full on popular vote. So it happens, but again, this is why the Electoral College comes back into being. What is disturbing to me is that because it's not working out for Democrats right now, I mean, given what happened in 2016, they want to change the whole system. And this is a problem. Whether it's the Electoral College, whether it's the constitution, whether it's the number of Supreme Court Justices we have on the bench, the whole idea is what you just change it. And I'm sorry that this is, this is what makes us us, right? I mean, this is what is special about the United States. We haven't changed our constitution 50 times in the last 200 years. No, we've had the same one. And it's worked. And we have 538 electors of which you need 270 right to become the president of the United States and to think that they would rob us of that that they would change that right now. I'm disturbed by it, but expect to hear more chatter on this. I don't think they can get it done, but it just tells you if this is why it's so important, it's so important for Americans to care about this stuff, especially if you live in a small state and to be active and to get out there and vote because things could change and they could change really, really fast. I mentioned the Supreme Court. I mean, that's one of the things I think that they'd like to change. They'd like to see more justices on the court, especially in light of what we saw may be coming out a decision on a rather big case this summer. And that would be pretty troubling. And I look at countries that have done that. Venezuela comes to mind. And it's not gone well, right? Because then you lose trust in everything. We are losing faith as a society in these key institutions. The one, the one sort of hold out there, the one that we still seemingly respect has been the Supreme Court. So if you were to just pack the court, depending on whoever was present in the United States, then you would lose that too. And then you just lose our country. So I'm troubled, I'm troubled by what they're doing. I think we will hear more about it later this week. So keep an eye out. There have been some reports, political, I believe, had one. Forgive me axios had a good one today. Talking about how there's this split in the committee in terms of who wants to keep the Electoral College who wants to get rid of it. Let me just say the Electoral College is a good thing. We need the Electoral College so that we can preserve this great diversity. That we have. I mean, otherwise, I'm sorry, it's New.

"That, I just want to point out that this Electoral College stuff I consider this pretty alarming. That there's such an effort here to, again, undo something that I think is one of the institutions that makes us so great as a country. It's something that helps us to appreciate our diversity. Of all these different geographical places in a way that makes us very special and as always historically made us the United States of America. I'm talking about article two section one clause three, which provided the original plan for our Electoral College.

Well, now there are reports that there's quite an effort underway, but you are seeing that the January 6th committee is rather split on this. Liz Cheney, who I know a lot of Republicans, especially Republicans that were big supporters of Donald Trump, are no fans of, well, she's actually come out on the side of keeping our Electoral College. This is kind of crazy stuff, you know? We have things in place for a reason and let's face it. You know, they've kind of worked well for hundreds of years. It would be a shame to change any of that, but we're going to get into the history of it and why this is happening now. Today, in today's show, as well as we got to get to the news on Elon Musk, never a dull moment. Will this deal ever get done? Not if he has anything to say about it, I think, as of today, I will explain it's so good to have you here again. I am Trisha.

By the way, the market as I go to air right now, giving up some of the gains that we saw in the session just earlier. And that's perhaps because people are coming to this reality that, you know, the economy kind of stinks, oil prices are still sky high, gas prices, they just came out. Highest ever. As we start the week off here, on a Monday. Anyway, before we get to all that, I just want to point out that this Electoral College stuff I consider this pretty alarming. That there's such an effort here to, again, undo something that I think is one of the institutions that makes us so great as a country. It's something that helps us to appreciate our diversity. Of all these different geographical places in a way that makes us very special and as always historically made us the United States of America..

Other people have resigned from the trump administration. Well it took him long enough didn't it. This is what happens when we allow a bully to do whatever he wants. That tried to remove him from office now but if they do not we still have thirteen more days and we have no ideal what this man will do to hold onto power power that has been taken from him through a legitimate election and everyone it is up to us. It is up to cooler heads to prevail. It is up to us those of us who love this country. Those of us whose blood is in the ground of this country one way or another as a descendant of slaves. My blood is in the ground of this country and i will uphold it democracy and i will uphold the right of you and i to vote. We need to abolish the electoral college now. When we abolished the electoral college it will allow for public for the public to choose the voter to choose based on popular vote and then there should be no more issue's every state has to agree. Or i should say they need enough states to agree to obtain a certain amount of basically. I'm gonna call him points and when they achieve a certain amount of points from each state then they can hopefully take it to washington and do something with it. I know that's vague.

"Injustice in america because the way that black lives matter. Demonstrators have been treated. Who have been peaceful. It is a glaring example of how people with disabilities are treated and singing in this country. Because we remember the capitol. Police carried out protesters who were handicapped in such a violent and disrespectful way but yet yesterday it was obvious that nothing was being done to stop the rioters on the capital breaking windows knocking down doors. Inside of our elected officials office rifling through their papers such disrespect and destruction. I know that there are going to be comparisons to the trump supporters. And that's who they were different people. The proud boys were there President trump would not do anything to stop them. Vice president pence had to step in is so sad. We are such an embarrassment on the world stage but you know. Our behavior is dangerous. Not only to ourselves that behavior. It's also dangerous to the world because the world is watching us and if we tell people to be peaceful protesters and yet they see trump supporters in such destructive behavior. It's unspeakable like i said. It made me angry that they were destroying our country in this way and it made me angry to realize that we have spent years listening to trump supporters and donald trump himself vilify athletes who take a knee in peaceful protest. How people have been arrested in black lives matters black and white for peaceful protesting. How in washington. When black lives matter was scheduled to march. They had the national guard on the stairs of the capital versus with the trump supporters. They it appears that they basically ushered them in. We.

"Sixth twenty twenty one. We saw an attempted coup. What we saw was someone trying to take away. The voice of millions of americans who cast their votes in the november general election. twenty twenty. your vote is your voice. Your vote is the one superpower you have is worth its weight in gold. Unfortunately yesterday there were a group of voters who decided that they weren't going to respect the voice of the people and they weren't going to respect the electoral college. That's kinda ironic. If you think about it you have a group of people. Try to stop electoral college. Which win the electoral college. Put someone in office that a few politicians might agree with then all of a sudden. The electoral college is king. I have said on this podcast for that. I support abolishing the electoral college. People are always talking about how many people voted for this politician are the next. That's the popular vote. It is my opinion that if we elect our politicians especially in the general election our president and vice president elect them with popular vote. There would not be of vehicle to be used against our democracy now. There used to be a time when you could argue that. We need the electoral college. We do not need the electoral college any longer. There are enough people in rural areas to voice their vote and have their voice be the last word. The twenty twenty general presidential election was very close. Everyone had an equal voice. The election was not rigged. Everyone voted it has been to the courts repeatedly and it is heartbreaking and it made me angry to see what was happening. On january six there was physical destruction of the capital such blatant disrespect of american property disrespect of our elected officials and it also was a glaring example.

"Mail in ballots no provision made for dropbox or curing of ballots. Seven weeks before the twenty twenty general election the pennsylvania supreme court overstepped their bounds by ruling. That mail in ballots could be receiving counted up to three days later. ballots mailed without a postmark would be counted signatures on mail in imbalance would not need to be verified so This is their letter right. And so then Let's see it continues Let's see i gotta get this bigger guys. I can't see sorry advocacy. You probably can't either so of state. Kathy book var also usurped legislative authority by allowing for proliferation of unsecured dropbox in key democratic on the day before the election encourage some counties not all to notify party in candidate. Representatives of mail in voters whose ballots contain disqualifying defects and allowing them to cure these defects in addition to these inconsistencies. Certified republican poll-watchers in philadelphia where prohibited from overseeing the canvassing ballots after court order. These poets should be allowed to observe. They were corralled so far from the canvassing a ballots that they could not view the activities requests from legislators for independent investigations have been ignored by the administration. Do these inconsistent questionable activities. We believe that the pennsylvania election results should not have been certified by our secretary of state. Jane members we asked for more time given the fact that the us supreme court is to hear trump versus book bar in the coming days. We ask that you delay certification of the electoral college to allow due process as we pursue election integrity in our commonwealth. So that is the Members of the penalty pennsylvania's senate Are requesting of mitch. Mcconnell and kevin mccarthy delay certifying pennsylvania until after the supreme court. Here's the case. And after they can conduct an investigation. The members of the arizona senate sent a similar letter so did members of georgia and wisconsin. And so they have all of these. Swing states have Members of the legislature. Who are saying. Hey Constitution gives the authority to us. We took the authority made a definition for how it's supposed to work and these guys changed without asking us and because of that we don't want you to use the way they did it and Vice president pence is supposed to be able to say. Yeah yeah you know what the constitution says the electors come from the legislature. So i'm not gonna read recognize these ones that come from the Secretaries of state now. Who knows if that's going to happen but that is That is what is the theory on the on the book here so quick break and i will be back with a couple.
