Biden backs change to filibuster rules to codify abortion and privacy rights into law

"President Biden is blasting the Supreme Court's decision to end a constitutional right to abortion The president says the high court made a mistake in essentially challenging privacy rights The one thing that has been destabilizing is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States And says he backs changing Senate filibuster rules to let a bill extending abortion protection pass by a simple majority instead of 60 votes Still as he ended a NATO summit in Spain the president said the ruling does not affect the nation's global standing America is better positioned to

Conservatives Won the Roe Narrative War Thanks to Drew Hernandez

"Won the narrative war that we were supposed to lose on Friday Saturday Sunday Monday is because your footage. And by the way, this is not just speculation drew. So we were told by everybody the following. Rove versus wade comes down and it's going to hurt our midterm chances. You heard something similar to that, right? Well, a generic congressional ballot before versus after roe versus wade, where on June 21st, Republicans were leading four on the generic ballot, and now we're leading by 5 on the generic ballot. Wow. You know, I think part of that could be the response as well. The violent response to this. I mean, you see this kind of footage. You see the way that these people respond to this type of thing. And I think a lot of pro life organizations that have been putting out a lot of education and media and social media informing the public just exactly what this is and what it looks like. And then you see people, yes, but then the other part is the other part is when you see a picture with a woman who's fully pregnant and she writes on their not yet. Exactly. And it all comes together. I don't think that's persuasive. I mean, a person is come on. I mean, it's not science. It's not science fact. It's evil. Listen, Charlie, when a regular person is like sitting on social media to go to your point and that pops up on their feed, they immediately say to themselves, that is, that's not the side I want to be on.

"And this is why we're so excited to have you and partner with you and do things, which is this kind of grassroots you frontline journalism. Because it's hard, right? I mean, you get sweaty, you don't get to sit in an air conditioned office, right? And so just talk a little bit about that because you're kind of becoming known as kind of one of the, if not the best front lines journalist where, you know, when the sparks are flying and antifa comes out, drew Hernandez is there, but talk about the hours, talk about the Gritty, gritting the side of it, right? Yeah, I mean, you know, shout out to the team though. The front lines team, they really helped me with booking the flights and getting me where I need to be. The logistics. The logistics, right? But like the actual on the ground when you're on the ground, it's a lot of instincts. You have to know what's coming. You have to know what you need to film at the right time to kind of have to kind of have a feel of the crowd. I mean, it's a difference environment. I mean, I view it kind of like, I don't want it to put it this way, but every kind of arena is like a different level, like a video game. Like that's how I view it. I don't treat it that way because you could get really different challenges. Different challenges, you know what I mean? There's different levels. There's like expert hard, medium, easy. It really is. I mean, for instance, if you go to Portland, you go undercover with antifa. That is probably the hardest thing to do right now is going to cover and get that kind of footage with them. But you go to like a protest somewhere in Arizona where it's not that hard. So you kind of have to what I always encourage people is not everyone can do what I do. I think a lot of people try to. I mean, you can. You can just run out there with a camera and film something, but to consistently keep doing this on like a monthly, weekly basis, it does take an amount of skill. Precision has involved precision because you have to be able to see things. Like when you see people like Savannah Hernandez or Julio Rojas with town call Julio is great.

Ann McElhinney on the Abortion Monster Kermit Gosnell

"He was known that if you basically are 8 months pregnant, 9 months pregnant. You can go to Kermit gosnell and he will kill the baby. He a 100%. He did this. This was his effectively his specialty. If you really were stuck, he would do anything, including murder live children, deliver them, and then kill them. Hard for us to even talk about this, but this is a reality. This was going on year after year after year after year in a quote unquote legal abortion facility operated by this monster, the serial killer. How did you come to this story? You and felon, how did you come to know about this story? So we made a documentary called frac nation and Salem was doing screenings for people across Pennsylvania and he had a couple of days off and I don't know. You've met Salem, right? He's just this veteran journalist. He just, he always has a nose for a story. He'd heard about some kind of thing that was going on in the courthouse, went down to the courthouse in Philadelphia. They had reserved the largest courtroom available because they presumed that the magnitude of this story would have attracted an enormous number of journalists. However, that's not at all what happened. In fact, it was like the Mary Celeste. He went in. There was no one there in this massive courtroom. And he started to hear, and this is a guy who was covered war in Northern Ireland. I mean, he has covered some awful gruesome stories. And he's sitting there, he's listening to the worst testimony. He has ever heard plus seeing these photographs of the babies of the babies that were murdered, projected on a large screen in front of this jury, and he's thinking what is going on here and the most shocking thing for him was that the journalists weren't there. And in the front of the courtroom, you've got Kermit gozleme smirking, which is kind of his thing, by the way. He sort of smirking, sort of, flirting with the stenographer. And it's like, he's thinking, what is going on here? And how is this not world

"To be clear because I know there are many new listeners to this program or to my podcast. They're not familiar because they haven't heard my conversations with you on the film that you made. But this is one of the stories of our time. It's one of the most gruesome and important stories of our time because there are many gruesome stories, but this story is extremely gruesome, but also extremely important because it highlights so many things at the heart of our broken culture. And so for people who know nothing about Kermit gazelle, let's talk about that. My understanding, the surface level is that this was a man who was operating one of the most, I mean, folks, this is like out of a novel, it's too horrific to imagine, but this is in a poor section of Philadelphia, praying on poor black women almost exclusively, and this is one of the most filthy evil abortion clinics you could ever imagine. It's like out of Dickens. Utterly horrifying. And this was going on year after year after year and the authorities did nothing. So that's one piece of the story, but Ann talk more, please for my audience who doesn't know what happened. No, but that's a great introduction, by the way. This guy was operating in plain sight. I mean, that's an incredibly important part of this piece. This guy operated for 30 years in plain sight. He did do legal abortions in a filthy, filthy, dirty place. However, he had a modus operandi of delivering bigger babies alive and then cutting the necks with scissors, and he did this according to the grand jury thousands of times.

You've done so many things. People who listen to this program are familiar with you. You're a journalist. You made a film about Kermit gazelle, I don't even know. There's no way even to describe that. But we can talk about that. In just a moment, you're working on a film, or you've shot a film already about Hunter Biden, what is the title of that film? My son hunter, and that's coming out soon. More news on that quite soon. My son hunter, which is a film about Hunter Biden. Today, however, we're talking about another one of your projects, which is a true crime podcast. So if people are interested in finding it, it is called serial killer, a true crime podcast. And the serial killer, of course, is doctor Kermit gazelle, the Philadelphia abortion doctor convicted of many, many, many murders in 2013, it's horrifying. And talk about this. I'm not a big podcast listener. Some people listen to this program on podcasts, but what is serial killer a true crime podcast? Yeah, so the true crime genre in podcasts. As you say, you know, a lot of on the conservative side, we have a lot of podcasts that are like radio shows on demand. So people listen to your podcast to our podcast. And it's like radio on demand. However, there's this other huge territory in the podcast world of narrative dramatic sort of documentary style podcasts. And one of the biggest sections of that is true crime. So for example, NPR did a show called serial a narrative story about a boy who killed his girlfriend and Muslim boy who killed his girlfriend. 450 million people downloaded it. And it's very high production value is the interview people in prison. And we thought, you know something.

I think it's pretty much you and schlichter. But Wilt Chamberlain is here. And I would love will to get your opinion of just how brutally effective the show trial for the invented insurrection has been at throwing the trader Trump into the brink. He's going to jail, right? Well, I think there's so many different problems. We just start with yesterday what happened with Cassidy Hutchinson. I remember watching Fox News and hearing Brett, tell me, oh, this is devastating. Did you hear? This is devastating testimony, and it's like clearly you've never seen a trial because the first thing you notice is it's hearsay. She's almost very rarely is she testifying even to a conversation she herself heard most of the talk is about someone else told her that Trump said X and that's not just hearsay, it's actually what we call double hearsay. The hearsay statement of Trump being offered for whatever the truth of that it was asserted. And then there's the hearsay statement of the person gossiping, right? So you have these it's the legal standard for gossip. We got hearsay, double hearsay, gossip. BS, which is what it seems. And so, you know, it's not that all hearsay statements are inadmissible. There are actually a lot of exceptions to the hearsay rule. But this is the classic example of why we have a hearsay rule, right? You have this woman saying, well, I heard that Trump grabbed the Stuart, you know, this guy, this guy told me Trump grab the steering wheel, and then you realize, well, that's not even possible. And then within an hour of the testimony, it comes out that the Secret Service agents are perfectly willing to say under oath, no, that never happened.

And his whole tail end demise and all of that, you've got some interesting stuff going on about that. Tell us where the projects it's now. Well, so the company is building a handful of docs at one time. We've got the Doc fund, and then we've got the scripts. And what I'm trying to do instead of doing one movie at a time, I'm trying to create a machine and a company. And we all are trying to create an industry, right? So these things take a little bit longer than just shooting out one movie after another, but I feel like that's my kind of, I hate to say this really my gift to the movement is that I know how to do these things. It's not just about me. It's not just about me making a movie after a movie. I want other directors to be able to make quality movies that can stay on big platforms that can make a huge difference. And that's kind of boring skill that I have. But it's something that I can lend to the movement. So the bigger picture is the company and we have such loyal humans working with us that it's like it's a blessing. I love your crew. You know, my guys. Yeah, they're fun. For a while.

And we're on the late night TV talk thing. Now, I want to talk kind of production value. Because I don't know if you notice, there is a giant show trial propaganda fest for the invented insurrection going on. That was pretty, I mean, yesterday was, there are some really good memes created out of yesterday. Like if a day creates good memes. It's a good day. So yeah, it's us. It's our team winning. Yeah, there was this one where like, I think they had like shots from one of those White House down or something movies or and then they had, I mean, it was so with the beast. The grass, like, that's basically what she was describing. I mean, it was absolutely insane. And good on them. But I want to kind of get into your area of expertise because the left decided when they were going to have these show trials that they were going to hire a TV news executive to stage them. Tell us super cool. It tells you a lot. And then you've got legs zelensky going on like every meeting with every celebrity he possibly can.

Grand Theft Auto: Capitol City?

"Here's Cassidy Hutchinson saying that Donald Trump tried to create a new saga in the Grand Theft Auto series, otherwise known as Grand Theft Auto capital city. Play cut 70. Tony described him as being irate, the president said something to the effect of, I'm the effing president, take me up to the capitol now to which Bobby responded, sir, we have to go back to the west wing. The president reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. Mister engel grabbed his arm, he said, sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. We're going back to the west wing. We're not going to the capitol. Mister Trump then used his free hand to lunge towards Bobby angle and this one mister ornata had recounted the story to me. He had motioned towards his clavicles. So that's a really serious accusation, right? I mean, you have a president of the United States that assaults the Secret Service agents. I mean, that's serious. I mean, wow. And by the way, who uses the word clavicles. Assaulted me in the clavicles, the first thing you say, wait, is that like super anatomically specific, by the way? Unless you're trained to say that she was trained in coached, I think, to say that. So okay, fine. She says this, super serious accusation. And I knew it as soon as I heard, it's just like, there's no way that's true. No way. I've been in the beast. You can't do that. And by the way, it's just not something I believe Donald Trump would do otherwise.

We Need to Talk About Cassidy Hutchinson...

"Yesterday, with an urgent pace, the committee put together a surprise hearing with a White House aide, her name Cassidy Hutchinson. Now I'd never heard of Cassidy Hutchinson before, I knew a lot of people in The White House. I knew a different Cassidy who's one of the sweetest person people ever who worked in The White House and was super loyal to the country and loyal president Trump. But this Cassidy, I had never heard of. Fine, whatever. I didn't know everyone in The White House. I didn't work there. Just did some projects and happened to visit more times than not. So this person comes up and she starts to testify. And she says some very, very serious things. She says some things such as, for example, the kind of scintillating news grabbing headline was the one that Donald Trump tried to hijack the presidential motorcade, otherwise known as the beast. That Donald Trump and all of his fury and all of his anger was so upset with what was happening. He wanted to go to the capitol so badly that Donald Trump put his hand on the collar of a Secret Service agent tried to take the steering wheel of the car and the Secret Service had to push him back. I mean, I heard this, I said, wow, that's quite an accusation. Cassidy, have you ever been in the beast before? Because I have. And that's literally impossible to do. I was thinking this while I was hosting the show yesterday, because again, I'm processing all this. I said, I'm not going to cover this until I have time to really let all this set in, by the way, previously I was more immature with the way I reacted to things like I did with Covington, I would like to think this is a mature response. You wait a day. Do you think about it? You process it, you study it, you examine it. That's what adults do. Children immediately like, wow, oh my goodness, see hijack the beast. I can't believe it. And then all it takes is someone to say, wait hold on a second. You can't do that. There's a separation wall between the passengers and the Secret Service. It's physically impossible.

A Lesson in NOT Falling for the Media Hype

"Many different stories where the media went instantaneously into accusation mode and full transparency. One of the great teaching moments, one of the great learning moments for me personally. Was in either January or February of 2019, I think is January. The Covington kid deal. With Nicholas Sandman, where I was doing too many things at once, I was spending far too much time on Twitter, and I tweeted something such as the Covington kids shouldn't have behaved the way they did. A stupid, dumb thing to tweet, because I didn't let all the facts come through. I didn't actually check the premise. I didn't challenge the media narrative. And that was such a teaching moment for me in a learning moment. I said, what am I doing here? Just kind of going along with the narrative for the narrative's sake. And I wrote a whole op-ed about it, but I actually learned from it. I decided that I was never going to do that again. I said, I'm not going to kind of ready fire aim. I said, we're just going to kind of let the facts come out. And I also learned that, man, when the media becomes so enthusiastic and so passionate about something so quickly, there's probably something there withholding from us. And then a couple months later, the Mueller report came out and it showed that Trump collusion was all a lie. And as I was growing in the movement and growing as a commentator and growing as a podcaster and growing as a host and growing as a leader of turning point USA, I said to myself, man, the next time the media wants me to get so excited about something, I'm just not gonna do it.

Caller Who Attended Jan. 6 Never Saw a Gun, Knife or Threat

"When I got to the capitol time and amongst the crowd and I was there for several hours, I never once saw a gun, I never once saw a knife, I never once saw anybody communicate in a threat either as someone in attendance or a capitol police officer. I never heard one person say, let's go burn it down. Nothing at all like that. So Charles, here's what gets me. Charles here's what gets me. About the AR-15s, because Cassidy Hutchinson, she says that she heard from somebody who heard from somebody that there were people armed with AR-15s all over the place. My question is, okay, well, why didn't the D.C. police department step in? If in fact, the D.C. police saw these weapons, that's a crime those kinds of weapons are illegal in Washington, D.C., so why didn't they intervene? Exactly. And I can tell you that the police department was around the capital, hundreds of them, and you're exactly right. If a cop stall, somebody walking with an AR-15, they're going to either arrest them, or they're going to take them out. And if the crowd was so heavily armed, why weren't any weapons confiscated, why weren't any police officers shot by the protesters? The only people that died that day were all Trump supporters. And the only person shot was actually by that. And they know it's a lot. And I don't think that this committee is what they're doing is designed to reveal the truth is just designed to do damage to Donald Trump. But here's my thing. All these little lies that they tell and they told over the last four years, they get away with it. There's never accountability. And my hope is that when the Republicans take control in November, that we not only launch investigative committees on January 6th, but also on November 3rd, 2020.

Is the Jan. 6 Committee Inducing Witnesses to Lie?

"Now again, it's one thing if they're saying this now if there were feuding this now, but if they were a feud under oath, somebody's lying. And somebody needs to go to jail. And there's a broader question. I was talking to my good buddy, Steve gill. He's a great political analyst, and he's been doing this a very long time. He said, Todd, not only is somebody not telling the truth, it's very possible that some of the committee members may be suborning perjury. In other words, they are inducing somebody to lie under oath, and that somebody is Cassidy, Hutchinson. Now, you gotta work with me here. You saw her live testimony, but there was also pre recorded testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson. In other words, they had already interviewed her, so they knew exactly what she was going to say when the TV cameras came on, and this went boarded a border coast to coast across the fruited plain. So they knew this well in advance. These are no doubt these are explosive charges. I mean, if in fact this is true, you are dealing with a lunatic in The White House who was trying to hijack the presidential limousine and was literally attacking physically attacking Secret Service agents. I mean, that's insane. That's like a made for TV movie. If it happened. But I don't think it happened, but I think we all know it didn't happen.

"first thing" Discussed on RISE Podcast

"Hey guys, it's Rachel, and this is a quick word on. Which goal to pursue first? Okay, so back in the day when I designed our start today journal, I was trying to figure out how to help people do a daily practice that I had been doing in a notebook for years. And it wasn't enough for me to just have the gratitude practice, which is there. And the goals that you're working on also there. But I needed a way to help people narrow down what to focus on. Because if your dreamer like me, that means you can come up with 50 dreams, right? You're like, I'm going to write a book. I'm going to start a podcast. I'm going to become best friends with Oprah. I'm going to open for Beyoncé. I'm going to start a nonprofit. I'm going to get a weenie dog, right? You could just keep coming up with ideas. And all of them are exciting and it would be so amazing if we had the ability to pursue 50 things at once, but if you actually want to make traction against a goal. And if you actually want success, the key is to put all your energy into one thing. So how on earth do we figure out which of the goals makes the most sense? Okay, years ago, I read this book that I highly recommend called the one thing by Gary Keller. And the whole book is basically that. How do you figure out the one thing that matters most? And essentially, the idea is this. If you gather all your ideas together, all your goals, all your dreams, and you look at them all. Gary asks, what is the one goal on this list that if it were to come true? Everything else here would be obsolete because the one goal made all the others happen. So for instance, if you want to pay off debt and you want to buy your first home and you want to go back to school and you want to make $500,000 someday and you want to you get the point like you have all these ideas. If you look at that list, what is the one goal on that list that would take care of all the other goals? It's the make $500,000, right? It's the make $50,000. If a lot of your dreams or goals are financially based, like if you have debt that you want to pay off and you want to be able.

"I remember the day. My phone got locked for almost the whole day. It felt like the most unbearable day in my life. I felt incomplete agitated and out of touch with the world. I'm sure most people can relate to this. Whenever they lose their phones. You feel like your world is over why this feeling thanks to technology we practically live online contacts made up a family and friends are all stored on the phone only be able to communicate with them. Virtually other important information like account numbers and phone numbers are all stored on it. Losing your phone is almost like losing your very self. This is what technology has done to us. It has integrated itself so strongly into our daily lives that inaccessibility for even a day feels like suffocation. This of course is trivial. Compared to what is truly important life makes us so busy that when we get out of bed the first thing we do is to check our phones for miss calls or messages instead of taking time to thank god for taking us through the night and sparing breath for another day we are gradually losing the essence of acknowledging god's protection and provision by concerning ourselves more with what our mundane workload demands. We forget to spend time with god in prayer and in reading of his word. Because we care more about what is going on in cyberspace. Technology is part of life in the twenty first century. No doubt but never should be a competition with our time spent with god during the day. Remember all things will pass away. But god's word will never be a thing of the past so let's always hold fast to what is essential to our relationship with god and always appreciate the eternal nature of his word. So let's do first things first the same way you'd feel like you're missing part of yourself whenever you lose your phone or leave it at home. It should be a priority to feel it within whenever we skip quiet time or prayer time or any other time devoted to god it is what keeps our inner man alive and strong enough to escape the traps of the enemy. Oh thank you..

"Changes our focus and We we don't just think okay. I'm grateful for this but in time we we get to so. The percentage of time that we spend on the positives gets higher and higher. And so does our experience and it's It's a virtuous circle. It really is it really is. I agree with you. One hundred percent with that. But let's go back in time a little bit like ten years fifteen years ago. What would you tell your younger self about gratitude I wanna go back to when i was five or six years old. Actually and just say you know Look at what is good sort for. What's good and don't let it pass you by. Don't don't miss it. Don't take you know the little things for granted because again because of the ego that we have and we all have an ego. It's not a you know good or a bad thing. And a lot of people judge their ego something we have the ego. It looks for things that could harm us or that are not good and in it latches onto them. And we have to consciously say what's good and what. Can i be grateful for here so i think in the way that we see that is to slow down. We move so fast you know were on our cell phones. Were texting or emailing. We go from this to this to this to this. This and that's how we miss the good and we have to use conscious would bring consciousness and awareness in too slow ourselves down and look for the good or we're going to miss it. And that's what i would tell my five or six year old self as soon as they can understand it i would reinforce that over and over and again. Just slow down. We move too fast. And we're missing life ra- missing out so pets what i would say. Yeah exactly we're always thinking about the next thing and what's going to happen in one month's on year and we forget that we are here and that we can be here right now and enjoy the simple things that we are experiencing right now and Like brother david says grateful. Gratefulness is the great fullness of life. When we when we enjoy the great fullness of life we we feel fulfilled we feel the power of the fullness of life of this present moment But what are you doing consistently to keep yourself great for you.

"Going to happen this time around and i think that is okay. Because as we have seen with people like bernie sanders and people like andrew yang. You start talking about something enough. It picks up momentum and there is a point at which it becomes inevitable. And we're just not to that point yet. And i get that people are suffering in the meantime i understand these problems and think about them a lot and just the way we're designed things are supposed to be hard and take a long time and our solutions that come out are necessarily imperfect and so i think the struggles that we're having right now are pretty good struggles and that's why to me. It is important to continue to elect people like mansion and cinema country. Who will struggle with these things but who will not try to make it harder for anybody to vote and who will not try to install people who will change the way. The votes are counted at the last minute. If they don't like the way the tallies coming together. I'm reading rabbi jonathan sacks the home we build together right now. It's so good and i don't agree with everything that he says in this book but a point that he makes is he talks about morality and moral codes and how we've abandoned moral codes which means politics has to hold everything. We talked about that a lot in our book and on the show and he talks about. You know what happens is there are no moral truth. There is only victory and so our opponents have to get demonized. Because we're putting all of morality on this. And i think that's what's so hard and that's that that is what is so destructive in american politics right now is that you can both feel that the childcare crisis in this country is a moral outrage and also acknowledged the political reality that exists currently in the united states senate and we have just decided that the only way to express your moral outrage is to decide that ted cruz is satan walking around and if you take a stance anything less than that. Then you don't care and i just think we have to let go because again. Politics is about power and i want it now. Listen i want power in certain circles because it aligns with my moral values. But i try to hold those things separately because just like we talked about with susan page. When you're there take holy pictures and hold up your morality and how much you are a better person than ted cruz or marjorie taylor greenwhich. Whoever we're talking about you probably are. But that's not the point right. The point is to use power to help people and acknowledging the political reality acknowledging how to use that power. Most effectively is not about morality. It's just about the political reality on the ground. that's why i really appreciate the leadership of joe biden. Because honestly i think he knows the difference. I think he knows when it's a moral issue. And i think that he can also hold the political reality very clearly in front of him and i just think all of us could channel but of that energy right now because often moralising makes our political reality more difficult. I'm gonna say that one time moralising scene makes our political reality more difficult and so if we want to have political success then we have to keep the moralizing in check and none of this is to done gone progressives because it is really important to have people like representative bowman in congress who are pushing it is important to have you know senator sanders. He represents a lot of people in the united states. And it's important that he's there. I think mitt. Romney represents a lot of people in the united states. It's important that he's there. I look at senator cinema who gets criticism from every angle six ways to sunday and i think you know what i personally wear a t shirt on the floor of the united states senate courtesy as i vote against a minimum wage increase. Like there are a lot of things in her stylistically. That i don't get and there are a lot of decisions that she makes don't really get. But she is representing people and it is important that this people be represented there what i don't want for the democratic party. Let me say it this way. I don't want the democratic party to invite in the that i think has led the republican party to censoring people voting their conscience. I don't want that strain of. It has to be this one right way or you're not on the team to infect the party that's kind of like having to hold all the healthy democratic attributes of our country right now for everybody i think that's unsustainable in the long term which is why i want a functioning healthy other party but i worry about the push to get everybody in one path from people outside the political infrastructure who wheeled lots of power and influence. Because i think one of the best things. The democratic party has going for it right now. Is that huge spectrum of ideas. Listen nobody's. I'm not mad at anybody in the political party. Bernie sanders out. There duncan on ted cruz. He doesn't do that. You know what i mean like. He's smart enough to get that. That just makes ted cruz. Name more popular in out out in zeitgeist. I'm really mad at like jimmy kimmel. And trevor noah. Because i don't think they're helping. And i don't why they're doing it and i think it gets them lots of us and listen everybody's got a job to do but like politically. It doesn't help. And i think you know drawing attention and giving them coverage and making them heroes and their own party in their own. Ideological extreme base is not helping and following that sharing that like. I do think we should all just like check ourselves. I know it feels good to dunk. Ted cruz i've done it on this podcast. I'm just saying that like it doesn't always help. So if i think about my goal here. I think we've assessed. What's going on action items as a citizen. I want to talk about issues instead of contributing to the high profile people. I don't like and the health of both parties. I want to think about the health of both parties. I think that's very good in conversation with people who disagree with you and i want to keep paying attention. Even when i don't feel like it we have this like thin veneer of kanus permeating from the biden administration where things are moving as we talked about in the first block in a really strong direction but like just under that veneer there are some real dangers and we cannot afford to check out on those and i think that the other really key component is to as much as we can distinguish bringing awareness to a real dangerous problem for moralizing hard. Turn so we're going from five alarm. Anti-democratic fire to livio rodriguez new album sour. Which were both obsessed with a love. It is perfect. I love this. I love this journey.

"Works. I am very pessimistic on whether you get ten. Republican senators to vote for any initiative. That is very very important to joe biden. But i'm happy that some people are trying and i feel like that's bragging point for the democratic party right now. We're not all one thing that we're not all one thing. Look at those guys. They're trying so hard to all. Be one thing well listen. I'm very frustrated with joe manchin. I am with the letter of experts that said if you do not get this voting rights bill passed. Our democracy is on the line. I think that's the right. Take i think these state election change is the state stacking. The state election boards is like a five alarm fire and also. I don't lead with that. When i'm talking to my republican friends that i'm trying to persuade i lead with. I want to healthy parties. I've been democrat. Since i was eighteen years old and i am concerned about the state of the republican party right now when they are trying to make it illegal to pass out water bottles then we have a problem right when they're trying to keep people from going to the polls after going to church because they know it's primarily black voters in texas. We have a problem and if you say stuff they'll go. Oh you can't do that. That's what my step dad always says. They can't do that. And i'm like no they can't and they are but like he doesn't he doesn't follow it bit by bit right and he. There's a lot of people because they do are not consumed with politics. Have a vision of sort of both sides. Mess it up. That's still very prominent conversations. I have why just think they're both kind of like they're both so corrupt and both parties are jacked up. And that's the that's the line. And so i do my best to say no. That's not the case right now. I understand where you're coming from. And i want to healthy. Functioning parties and one party is in a very different place than the other party and its concern. It should be concerning for all of us. I don't do ted cruz a tube worm. Don't you agree. 'cause that's not gonna move anybody. I've just eliminated myself as a person who has any sort of objectivity when it comes to this and that's what independent people who are persuadable. Wanna hear and again. I'm not trying to win the moral argument. I'm trying to wear win the political argument. I don't care if ted cruz cries into his pillow every night because he knows he's such a pet. I want ted cruz to lose the next election. That's what i care about. That's what i care about. And i just think it gets to displays where like we want them to be convinced of how bad they are and that's great. Y'all can trying that but it's not gonna work and it's not going to change anything. I don't want them to feel bad about themselves. Want them to lose this bill going through the senate in regular order right now related to the endless frontier act which is something that chuck schumer and todd. Young senator from indiana have been working together on about research and development money. Can the united states make sure that china is not eating our lunch in terms of our understanding technology. Our defense system cybersecurity. There's all kinds of stuff in it. It's it's a really good bill that has gotten to be less good as it has gone through regular order because regular order means everybody gets to take a bite at it right and it gets loaded up with stuff that doesn't have anything to do with the underlying bill and things get watered down and you end up passing something that nobody thinks great but it does get something done and watching that happen right now. Feels like the most nostalgic wonderland. That's how i felt about. The white house means about infrastructure. I was like putting him of veins. I love this like they're debating the spending and isn't gonna come from the this in this fun. I'm like i don. I barely understand what you're talking about. And i love it. It makes me so happy with. I feel exactly the same way. And so let me say i agree with you. That the voting rights issue is a five alarm fire and i also think that the idea that the for the people act is going to get passed as it is today through the united states senate whether on a fifty one vote majority or sixty vote majority is a fantasy and is probably not good for america. It is good for america when we go through these things. I really support the biden. Administration's vision around treating childcare is infrastructure. I.

"I think it is more effective to talk about the issues then to add to the profile of known the libs politicians. Yes i think it is important to recognize that state. Republican led legislatures are have been most of them are going into recess now but have been on a roll trying to make voting harder trying to make the right to receive an abortion even narrower or to outright ban it on the chance at the supreme court will go there with them her trying to make transgender kids political. Footballs and i think we need to be talking. Relentlessly about those efforts and explaining what they really are. Because i truly believe that person who doesn't pay attention to politics and who will vote for a democrat or a republican in the next election and who might or might not show up for a mid-term election can hear those issues and get mad about them if they really understand what's going on. I really believe that we can move people around those issues. I do not believe that we move people by dunking on politicians. A so you the other thing that. I've been thinking about a lot and i know that this is going to upset people and i you know again i love you. We're we're all here with our differences for me. One of the most off putting things happening not among democratic leadership democratic leadership does not do this as much as democratic influencers but in sort of the social media space the constant relentless assaults on people like mansion and cinema by folks with millions of followers. I'm not talking about somebody who's listening has just like a regular account in life. Who gets aggravated with them. I totally understand that. But the the drumbeat of let's pylon to those two and let's act as though we wish they would get primary d- by someone who was far more progressive. Who if you look at the reality of those states would not win in an election. I just find that so counterproductive to again those people who are marginally interested in politics gettable voters and predictable voters if i were democrat and well i guess i am a democrat now but if i were like a you know a really passionate democrat i feel like i would be walking around constantly bragging about the pa- left era of ideas that can exist in this party somewhat harmoniously and just as an american. I feel really good about these meetings. That are happening. Where you're getting a susan collins. A joe manchin who else at shelley moore. Capito gave the white house by herself west. Virginia's got nothing but credit these days of your capital is not one of those people who you say like. Maybe she'll vote for this ever and she is like sitting down trying to get some work done.

"Today is to me a key. Difference right now is that you have some real alignment within republican leadership all the way down to the state and local parties on making sure that elections continue to favor republicans. And you do not have that kind of ideological alignment within the democratic party. You have serious hard. Core fights about what to do about those things. And i think a fight is pretty healthy like a fight. I think that's very democratic. I think our country's design is to have those fights over things. I am concerned about the extent of alignment happening within the republican party. Around these topics. We'll and let me tell you the difference for the person talking back to this. The difference is those discussions on the democratic party. Come because we have the majority of the voters and not the majority of the legislators in state houses in congress and in the senate the fight in the republican party is because you're falling into the minority and you don't like it. That's the difference. I'm sorry i do not think those things are equivalent. I think having republicans lose the popular vote in the presidential election every time in my lifetime but one when you have republicans that represent a filibuster-proof group in the united states senate only represents like thirty percent of the united states population like this isn't about. You have reforms on the table as democrats because you feel like the process is anti-democratic. That's one thing if you're setting up anti-democratic processes because you're losing on the republican side. That's a complete different thing. I hear you on that. And also everybody's not there and i do wanna acknowledge again where everybody's coming from an understanding that for a lot of people being a republican being opposed to democrats is really deeply ingrained for lotteries ins and i don't wanna leave anybody out of this conversation by ignoring those concerns. I think that the other thing that i am interested in getting your thoughts on because i feel like you. You really are calmer about this. I m i think you have a clear vision of the way that this is the undoing of the party. The way that this leads to electoral failure the way that demographic shifts make this such a losing strategy long-term about all of that. Whenever i hear you say that. I'm like okay. Yep yep yep with you. And then i also think about how much damage a small group of highly motivated people can can do especially when that small group is still like quite a few million people and so. I wonder how you're thinking sarah about the rallies resuming about michael. Flynn being out there. Actively and openly talking about a violent coup about this strain of people who still think there's gonna be some magic date on which donald trump becomes the president again. Do you see any. I'm especially thinking about mike historical corollaries where a lot of damage can be done because of a movement like that even if it doesn't carry the day for the majority of americans. Yeah i think that there will be damage done but it won't carry the. I think that's a really good way to describe it. I think to do what they wanna do. They have to have more people. And they don't have those people and i think the election of donald trump as i said consistently during the election of two thousand was an alignment of some very specific scenarios. That got him to the presidency and not even incumbency was enough to overcome. Not all of those scenarios being present right like. I think that he was a historical in a lot of ways. Now i'm gonna talk about both sides mouth. 'cause i just said i think he is the completion of a pattern inside. The republican party pattern was one of those pieces of the puzzle that align to get him elected in two thousand sixteen. And i think what what gives me the greatest amount of i if the right word but at least a little bit of calm is the fact that he can't dominate mini-cycles like he can't even if he gets back on facebook he shut out of twitter and these people as passionate as they are growing up into the from the desk of donald trump blog. Every day are they know. They're not that's why they shut down because nobody was reading it because nobody cared now. I think it is morphine and more dangerous things. I think it's still very much a cult of personality. But there are other people. I think marjorie taylor. Greens figured out how to tap that chemistry. She's raised a lot of money. You're right yeah like that. She she can you know. She doesn't really trump impression. It's pretty it's pretty convincing. And there are lots of people for whom that will be very convincing but like even the election to fill. Deb haaland seat that it was such a blowout that gives me a lot of hope that i think at the end of the day the impact of the vaccine roll out the end of the pandemic the fact that all those people were impacted by the the stimulus checks that the economy is taking off. I'm not saying that. We don't have problems but i think that stuff does impact people. Is it enough to undo some of the identity based politics and the fear that they're going to push through like based campaigning techniques. No of course not. Those people are still going to be motivated by that. But i just don't think there are enough of them now. All of that said. I think this is serious and we should pay attention to it. But what. I don't want us to do is feed the freakin flame. And i think that we are going to have to hold the fact that this is really dangerous. Because we're a two party system that these people are motivated to do damage and are becoming more and more successful at doing that. Damage to our democracy and also understand that it is the fight that fuels them and we cannot give into that fight and i think that's what's frustrating to me. It's like watching people. Say sharing the like ted cruz getting dunked on by jimmy kimmel and thinking that helps. Anything is really frustrating to me. Because that side you think so anti-democratic and you're right and that side of the republican party. That is so dangerous and on the move. You're all right about that. And also what feels them. Is the fight.

"first thing" Discussed on Pantsuit Politics

"Our conversation today. It was important to me to take a wide view of all of us. Who are sitting here together thinking about these issues. You are listening right now. People who voted for joe biden donald trump and joe johnson and lots of other people. You're listening with people who are in school and people who are well into retirement and everything in between there are people listening nursing babies and delivering amazon packages and going for a run and researching black holes and lobbying congress. You're listening with dreamers and police officers people who are stationed on military bases throughout the world librarians and chefs. You're listening with people who are transgender. People who've been married for fifty years parents whose kids have just shared life changing news with them with people who are deeply religious strong atheists people who no idea what they believe right now and these are not like abstractions. If i set long enough thought about it. I could put names behind every single thing. I just said so. When we're in your ears you know. We are not trying to represent every perspective and we are definitely not trying to convince you of anything. We're just sitting at this big beautiful internet table thinking about our values and questions and actions as citizens with a whole bunch of other people and we love doing it and are so honored that you're all here so we're going to expand our moment of hope into this entire segment because there is so much to celebrate right now with regards to covid nineteen something that really struck me is for this entire past year or longer i have been very closely following axios map of the united states and states where the covid cases are increasing or staying the same. I never liked the colors. They pick just for the record weird colors they were weird. It was like this funky tan and then turquoise for that's not the point the point is i've been sort of obsessed with it's really it just hit my sort of preferences really well. That's how i wanted to see it. I wanted to watch it weekly. Don't i like colors and numbers. And so i've just it's been in my life for over a year and they retired at this week. They said the cases have been so consistently low. And that's true like the map for probably the last three to four weeks has been solidly. Turquoise which means decreasing in almost every state wyoming popped up there. Like one one week. And i was like. What are you doing wyoming wyoming. Got it under control because they are retiring the map and it really because i've been watching it for so long. It hit me almost as hard as the vaccine just felt like no. Wow we're like really really beating this thing. And i understand that. That's not a universal experience. I understand that if you're listening outside the united states it's hard to get a vaccine. That is really really difficult to hear. Also say i've appreciated that map because it's about the right amount of looking at the data for me Just kind of having that sense of where is it increasing decreasing whereas it holding steady. It's been really accessible invaluable to me and it did it. Hit me really hard to like. Oh my goodness if this map is not needed because of where we are. We're really making progress. And that alongside this really aggressive push and i think creative problem solving oriented push from the administration and from states across the united states to get more people vaccinated in the month of june. It just gives me a lot of hope. I'm solidly in the category of whatever it takes and i like seeing the spectrum from pushing employers to make sure that people have time both to get the vaccine and recover all the way through the lottery kind of thing like just. We got a bunch of people out there. Let's do whatever we need to do to get them vaccinated now. I totally agree with you about the other. Parts of the world. We have the most heartbreaking e mail from melissa in manitoba canada where hair like the hardest of hearts shutdowns. this late. I know it is so hard and so many other parts of the world. But you know i think a lot about this quote. I once heard from dr phil. And listen dr phil a lot. I really don't i try not to actively quote dr phil ever but one of my favorite things ever heard him say is if you're in a hospital bed in your leg is broken and the person next a comb. It doesn't make your leg not broken right like you. Just have to and i think it works in the reverse to not only acknowledging places where there's hardship even if other people have hardships but also acknowledging where you have things to celebrate even if other people are not quite there yet and i think it's just after this entirely difficult heartbreaking tragic experienced to notice in recognize like things are getting better. Listen i had to check myself. Because david leonhardt at the new york times was writing about the specifically the mask requirement and dropping it and how it has been motivating people to get the vaccine and i think a couple things what he said. The optimists were clearly right. And i was like stay home. Will sarah stay humble. Because i have and i've been an optimist man since that february when i felt us like really. Oh i felt that acceleration like on an energetic level. I just felt it. And i had we had so many listeners. Like i'm not going to get the vaccine until the fall. And i just it was all i could do not to be like no. I don't really think that's true. I was right. And i think even when the the mass requirements i think that particular moment where everybody was like. That's not going to motivate everybody. Anybody if we can be honest with ourselves was a moment where it was very clear where the politics had infested things when even politics infest public health which it most certainly has throughout this whole process..

"Presently. We posted a question on our website. We asked what one thing would make your life better and we got three thousand eight hundred and forty responses almost immediately to that one question. What would make your life better. It's an interesting question to ask yourself right now. If i were to answer that question. Because i have a pretty good life i have to say. It's a wonderful life and what you see on. The outside is one thing but really i think the greatest thing about my life is that i have a great sense of inner peace that is sort of indescribable. But what would really make my life. Better is if these boots that i'm wearing today had come in a size ten instead of a size nine and a half because i was in that little fendi store and i you know how you really like it a lot and the lady says. I'm sorry we only have a half but they run big my feet not feeling that they run big right now so that would have made my life better if they came in size ten. All i can ask or some folks. Chicago had definite ideas though about the one thing that would improve their lives thing that my life better would be a fulltime housekeeper tans down probably a fulltime unpaid life assistance to follow me around and do whatever i needed them back and design my own man who have them show up whenever i want have believe whenever i want. Someone could walk my dog when it's raining or when it's snowing a couple extra hours in the day one thing that would definitely make my life better is if i could have lunch with your we shop and you can do my hair and then i can do your hair personal shopper. Drive through starbucks so i wouldn't have to get out of my car. Free parking thing that would make my life better is paying less taxes in each magic degree. better johnson. definitely more sleep. No telemarketers ever called. Our home in telemarketers are getting bad. aren't they so bad. I answered the phone so much. So now i answered the phone illu the other night i got one and they say you know just the owner of the home. No it was my answer. Some of the answers we got online. Where a little unusual light brook from colorado. Who wrote the one thing that would make my life better would be if someone would invent a portable doggy door. That's interesting that fits into sliding glass doors. Is well insulated and doesn't take handyman to install portable doggy door. Some of them were kind of pie in the sky to have a car and a driver. Someone said that's a nice thing someone to come in and do my hair and my daughter's here every morning that's good. I have that too. That's really that is really good. I know people say to me. How do you get your head like that. you yours could too if you had. Andre should see me on the weekend but we really won't go to the grocery store and the people you know 'cause usually you know people have a reaction because you walk in it's open then they don't know who i am have to say. Hello we'll be back in a minute but some of the responses we got. Were so doable. To stop watching so much television and get active to say goodbye to those people in my life. Who are not good for me. That was a lotta people. A lot of people have just say goodbye. We're going to talk about. How do identify the things that you do. Have the power to change and how doing just one thing differently can move you in the right direction. But i i wanna talk to lisa. Snugs lisa's answer to the question. What one thing would make your life better was similar to a lot of the messages we receive from wives around the country. And you wrote lisa speaking up for the wives around the country the one thing that would make my life better is if my husband would come home each day and give me a hug and kiss and say i thought of you today. Oh you're not alone. That is not happening and a lot of homes across america. I thought it was. I thought it's like ward cleaver comes home dear. That's not too busy. I think too busy busy well. This lisa's husband andrew were you. Were you surprised to hear that. That's the one thing not a chauffeur. I was a little surprised but you know we have very busy. Lives and take for granted. Sometimes the little things like that and we come. I come home and we both start doing our own thing and you come home and not even like smack sometimes seventy. Give me a mike. Go come on. Give me the real deal. I usually give the hug and the kiss in the morning before leaving and that ought to last for goodness sakes. What more do you wanna hug you this morning. And so you just come in and there's not even a howdy doody usually all there. Is you know just saying alone. We start you know doing things with the children and so

"Gary Keller is the CO founder, , chairman and CEO of keller-williams maybe you've heard of them well, , in fact, , they're the world's largest real estate firm by agent count he's a titan of his industry he's built a dynasty. . But it didn't start that way. . And a Gary's, , case. . He was a real estate agent. . With no track, , record. . So I didn't have any real focus in college and my dad, , my sophomore year says, , Hey, , you probably need to get a major. . So he had me that summer spin a day with a lawyer David account a with a banker with a realtor not like the real tournament went back to college and turns out they were just a major mural state. So . that's how I came to get my degree allstate was the dad said, , just go shadow these people. . As exercise I mean most dads don't have their sons do this. . So that's that's fascinating to me. . He was an educator. . So my mother and father were both educated so that that made sense to him. . I got to college study real estate came out attributed like a job. . So one of the biggest mistakes the independent contractors make is they don't treat it like a job, , right they get in there for the freedom and the flexibility and the possibility of untold wealth, , and what they do is they take advantage of the freedom and flexibility and they overtake advantage of it, , and then they never get the wealth. . It's a job it's a job. . So I came out of college come to Austin I'd been here once before my. . Family I didn't know anybody at the time other than a former school friend and join US Real Estate Company and start selling real estate and all I did was treated like a job that is I got up early and I went to work. . So I showed up and by the way there was nobody there and literally would pull my little Volkswagen into the office and there was nobody there and I just got to work and they said look you're gonNA have to generate because we're not going to give you any clients. . And of course, , I went oh my gosh and they didn't talk about that in college at all. . You know they talked about real estate they never said you to generate a client, , right? ? and. So . I had to go learn to Lee generate and I read some books and two classes and I went out and I saw five houses my first thirty days in a city that actually never been to write other than once and I did it just by following the books I did what they told me I. . Didn't one of the mistakes that we make. . I think is that we try to be creative on the front end of doing something instead of the back end and when I mean is is that I had a college professor say Gary Pretty Smart. . But if you look around, you , realize that people have lived before you. . And you might WanNA study them before you go and try to reinvent the wheel and that had a profound impact on me because my went. . Okay. . So what he's saying is I, should , go find out where people who are doing this the best are and just mimic them until I internalize what they're doing. . So I, , understand it and then I can be creative off of that but. . I shouldn't go in and just be creative on the front end because what do I know it would take me years to get smart by doing it and learning from me doing it. . I could really speed that up I copy and other people in the beginning. . So that's really what got me going. . What I came to understand was sales is helping people make good decisions and I didn't. . Care in the end I had no real vested interest if the decision was not to buy or if it was to buy because I was looking for clients for life and in the short term, , you would think well, , I needed everyone to buy because I or or sell with me because I need to make money now but I looked up and I realized pretty quick I wanted to. . Have a great career, , not just a great year in the way to have a great career was to not overly emphasize the moments income focus on doing right by people they'll do right by you. . Right people don't care how much you know until they care right? ? Did you it these mantras that are not really just mantras they're actually golden rules in philosophies about how to look at things. .
