"I'm Jamie West. Good morning, Mike Room had good morning. Jamie West appreciate it is always of lot happening. Of course City of Phoenix today, voting on getting rid of the mass mandates. We'll talk more about that later on, but let's start with the audit yesterday. There was a hearing in which the county Board of Supervisors were invited assed far as I know they declined, but there were members of the auditing firm that were there. Ben Cotton, one of the one of the subcontractors founder of of of Cipher, which is one of the companies that subcontracted to do the audit with a little bit of explaining to do, And I'm sure you've heard this, but let's walk through this just a little bit. Um and and again. The idea here was build confidence in the people of Arizona and ultimately around the country. But here in Arizona, Maricopa County, especially Let's build confidence that we're going to make sure that our election system is sound. Now I will tell you that this has been a truly a bipartisan message in saying that it is The secretary of state in Arizona, is a staunch Democrat. The governor of this state is a staunch Republican. They both have said Everything was done right. The outgoing county border soup. I'm sorry. The county recorder Adrian Fontas said that the election was done appropriately. The new recorder is a Republican. Name's Steven Richer, he said. It was done right. There's a mix on the county board of Supervisors of Republicans and Democrats. They all said that it was done right. The Sheriff America Polk County Said. It's dangerous to give up routers because that would be you know, give a front like a backdoor almost have people standing at the door hackers at the door that could compromise everything The city does especially policing. He's a Democrat. Well, the Republican County attorney agrees wholeheartedly with the sheriff. So when you talk about bipartisan that has been bipartisan in all of this, I will tell you that I am one of the Trump supporters voted for the president, the former president. I voted for him twice. I thought he was a better option than Hillary Clinton. I thought he was a much better option when it comes to policy than Joe Biden. And But I also understand that elections have consequences. I've never been a person. That says not my president. My first big election involvement was with the George W. Bush campaign in Oh, four, and I used to laugh at all of the anger on the left that would and they'd have the stickers on their windows with the W and a line through it. That said, not my president. I thought well as long as you could deny that you lost and that he's not your you deny. He's your president. Then elections don't matter there who cares? He's not my president. I'll wait till there's a president. That's really mine. Barack Obama was my president didn't agree with him. Joe Biden's My president. Don't agree with him on a lot of things. But I'm not gonna walk away from the will of the American people. I was one of those ballots that was cast America but county my ballot is sitting somewhere right now, with 24 hour guards around it while they're contemplating continuing this audit. So that's the opener. What happened yesterday? Ben Cotton, founder of Cipher, he remember the accusation that files were deleted that they believe in a matter of fact, President Trump Put out a statement saying that the entire file had been deleted, which wasn't true. But there were specific files that have been deleted deleted. Here's what Ben Cotton said. I discovered a lefty. That clearly indicated that the database directory was deleted from that server..

"FT V. Gore In the 2000 election. I was part of the policy team on the George W. Bush campaign. United States Senator Ted Cruz. And so I started down in Austin in the summer of 1999, a domestic policy adviser, spending a year and a half on the campaign. Working essentially on policy that touched on legal issues probably was historically the Supreme Court had always said that these issues are state issues former attorney for Al Gore Stephen Zack, and that the they should not rule on this issue and that the state of Florida should make these decisions well, when the case went up, I remember there was a vigorous debate. Among the Bush legal team about whether or not the U. S Supreme Court would choose to take the case on what was interesting is there was a divide that seemed to break out on the lines of whether or not you had clerked at the court. My recollection is most of the former spring poor clerks believe the court would take the case. Most of the other lawyers believe the court wouldn't take the case. On the reason's pretty straightforward that there is no doubt a court, looking to preserve its own legitimacy to protect its own backside from being criticized from being attacked for being in the midst of a political dispute would decline to take the case. That's the natural self preservation instinct. Of any court, and I'm sure that was a major factor for the justices. You have to know that the Supreme Court does not want a presidential election to land on their steps to land at their feet, Chief legal correspondent and host of Fox News at night Shannon Bream, They try so hard they endeavor so hard with every case in every decision. To me, it is a political is possible. And I think realizing it was going to end up there. You knew that was the end of the road. That was the end of the game, and that was it. And so these justices were going.

"If the president and there's a good shot, he wins again without the popular vote the the Democrats are prepared with states just to say, we're delivering all of our votes for the for the Electoral College to the popular vote winner, which is not. The not the way it works can they do that and how do we hold on to the Electoral College which I think is the most important thing for the balance of our country. While I'm deeply concerned that we're headed for a period of chaos in in the weeks after Election Day I think by any measure, this could be a close election, and if it's close Joe, Biden already made explicit that if he doesn't win, he intends to challenge the legitimacy of the election. Bush versus Gore. As you mentioned, there's an entire chapter talking about Bush versus Gore. The last time we had a significant contested presidential election. In the courts. I was a young lawyer I was on the George W Bush campaign at the time in fact, Heidi and I met on that campaign. We were at cubicles about twenty feet apart from each other on the campaign. I was down in Tallahassee the entire time of the recruitment recant it was chaos on election night George W Bush won the votes were counted. He want he was declared president, and then the votes were close enough that Al Gore challenged at the filed a whole series of lawsuits all throughout Florida seeking to reverse the outcome of the election and when he was seeking to do was throw out votes that were for George W Bush, and try to find new votes that were for him, and then that's what anyone in a recount. If you've lost your incentives keep counting and counting counting to you can change the outcome. Well, it was utter chaos I. Remember we had a war room with a whiteboard with seven different cases all on the whiteboard any one of which could could. Flip the presidency of the United. States. That case went to US Supreme Court twice the first time we won unanimously nine zero the Supreme Court vacated the decision of the Florida Supreme Court Senate back to the got it. Wrong. The second time it went up to the court. We won seven two on the violation. So seven to the supreme, court agreed what was happening in Florida violated the equal protection clause of the constitution. But critically, it was five four on the remedy on the outcome where five four the court ruled enough is enough we've counted the votes. The votes have been counted four times. George W. Bush has won all four times under the law the election is over. It's time to move on. That decision, we had thirty six days of uncertainty of chaos..

They know that the let of law outlaws this type of behavior and beyond that they are living in the political outcome of having engaged in this behavior. There's been a two year long scandal and investigation by several congressional committees, and especially counsel's office into this type of flirtation with assistance from a foreign power. So it's, it's mind boggling, like I said that he would do it again. But like I said, also, it's almost expected at this juncture. This is who he is Chuck mentioned that maybe Trump is someone who will be. Comfortable cell saying mistress in this case, I happen to think that he was being in completely honest. He doesn't see anything ethically wrong with accepting the assistance of a foreign power and he wonders a why other people don't see the world that he does. I will just know there is one historical parallel. We've talked about this before I'll gore received these stolen George W Bush campaign debate prep book. They got it in the mail. And the first thing they did when they got in the mail was alert the FBI. So there is a historical precedent for doing something right in the situation.

And so if you take a look at that, you can always catch up on his articles. He was an under secretary for President, George W Bush and career diplomat. And we're always glad to have his expertise here on America trends. Bart. Welcome back. Thanks, amy. It's always great to be on with with your network in your show. Thank you. We appreciate it. So. And we do have our new audience of biz talk radio all over the world several new countries. And I wanted to ask you a little bit about your pedigree and telephone a little bit about your career trajectory and all you've done because it's been so much. I'd be delighted that's always fun to share. You know, I used to call myself, the accidental Arabist I became a State Department arabists, I joined the State Department, and then one thousand nine hundred eighty s I was a cold warrior, and I joined to fight the Soviets and keep godless communism from your doorstep. And then the Berlin Wall fell and I thought well, I'll try the Middle East. That's a new area. And I took a few years of Arabic training went served in in Jordan Yemen. Tunisia and Kuwait and came back did some Washington assignments, and then took retirement and. Got involved in American politics. I started out as a hobby. I I'd lived overseas without television for so long. I came back and saw people watching TV for three or four hours a night. And I thought I could do something else, and I started doing political work and before I knew it. I'd gotten involved in that, George W Bush campaign and invited me certain as administration. So I went back into government as principal deputy assistant secretary, and I worked at the energy department. I was in charge of policy, and international affairs, and was kind of fun. I I came back in and out ranked all my former ambassadors, and that was always nice. How about that? So about what was that? We know George W Bush what years were you there? I was there two thousand three and two thousand four and two thousand to two thousand four and I got out and worked on the re election, and then I did some private Bank. Taking. Investment banking? And then now, I'm a federal contractor working on energy policy. It's a lot of fun and keeping us up to date on all the things going on with the political headlines. And boy did we have some today. It started out with well, the government shutdown over for now, President Trump, it's like thirty five days or so the partial government shutdown the longest ever, and they sort of reached an agreement and a lot of people are saying Trump came to other people are saying, maybe he'll just do the state of the union and make a big announcement. Then what do you think of all this Trump doesn't Kate? And Coulter can relax. We voted for we voted for Trump. And we we got Trump. We did not get jab. We he is. Again, going back to my foreign service career the first shutdown. I was a diplomat in Kuwait, and we were told you're all essential. You'll come to work, but we were given specific instruction word for word from Washington through our ambassador. He said, you are not to do anything that would help any American citizen during the shutdown are instructions are three words. Make it hurt. We want American citizens to hurt during the shutdown. This was the Clinton administration their official instructions to their to their senior. Administration officials because they said Newt Gingrich and the Republicans are making as if government doesn't matter we want to teach American voters a lesson. And that's what Democrats have been doing with shutdowns ever since Trump has taken a different tack. He's kept everything opened that he could keep open. Remember, Obama close to the national parks. He close he spent money and time to put up fencing around the World War Two memorial, which if you've never been to Washington, it's an open memorial. You can walk to it at three o'clock in the morning and walk around. It's just out there on the grass, and you can walk up to it and walk through it. But they put fencing around it tied it with wire. So that the World War Two veterans could not get into it. They wanted to make it hurt. Trump is trying to make it. Have a lesser impact on everybody. The least impact possible now federal workers are missing their second paycheck. And he's saying let's open up for three weeks. Give them their back pay. Let them save their money for a little bit. They've got three weeks now to kinda reregulate their affairs. And now, let's fight again. And let's settle he is not gonna stop until he gets the funding for the for the wall to protect the barter. There's no question he will protect our border. Any did say they'll get the paychecks out as quickly as possible. And you know, he means that he's doing this for free. He donates his paycheck. Talks will continue on the funding for a border wall. And again as you mentioned. If they don't come to an agreement by February. Fifteenth says so close it down again talking to Bart marketplace undersecretary former under secretary for President George W Bush some other. Big news from this morning. Roger stone adviser and longtime friend of president crop awakens to have his whole family jolted by the FBI banging on his door and he was under arrest. And boy what a spectacle they made. And even the CNN reporter camping out there. Waiting wonder how he knew? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's such a contrast. I laugh at it because it's so ludicrous. But it's really very, very frightening. Twenty nine federal agents in nineteen vehicles to come and break down the door or bang on the door of the man who would have turned himself in at the federal courthouse. All all they had to do is say bring say to the lawyer show up at three o'clock this afternoon and turn yourself in for for a theory. And they wanted to make a spectacle. CNN was obviously tipped off. Not because not only were they there. The reporter said he had to he just had a gut feeling. So apparently, very strong. Yeah. Yeah. And his gut feeling Cain because he saw unusual grand jury activity yesterday. What what is how is he seeing grand jury activity? That's that's supposed to be more secret even than than the molar. Hey, let's put a pause, and I want to hold you over to after the break. I have a hard break coming up that. Okay. Yes, ma'am.

"There anything different about this moment versus the trends of the last thirty years will the NRA through its lot in with Donald Trump during the two thousand sixteen campaign before virtually any other significant interest group lined up behind Trump before he won the nomination. I think even direction he was a head by by this point in the spring and summer of two thousand sixteen head and quite captured the nomination, but the NRA throws in their lot with him. They endorse him even though a decade ago or so Trump had supported stronger gun laws, and he doesn't about face on that he perceives their full-throated support. And of course, key to that for Trump's point of view is the fact that he loves loud, cheering crowds. And the fact is that the core NRA constituency in the cord gun rights consituency coincides very closely with the core Republican constituency and the Republican party has become more homogeneous. It has become. More conservative and arch conservative in the minds of some. And so within the con- the sort of narrow more narrow ideological confines of the Republican party. The NRA becomes an even more important voice within the party and within the Trump for president movement. So in the campaign, the NRA contributes over thirty million dollars to Donald Trump's campaign. They contribute over fifty million dollars to the campaign at large in two thousand and sixteen and they roll the dice in in the perspect- that Trump was not favored to win the election. But lo and behold, he does so they hit the jackpot. And that's you know, it's interesting that they are such a huge force in conservative politics, considering not that many Americans own guns is that correct, obviously disproportionately I think among self identifying conservatives, but how is it that this an interest group, which does technically represent a relatively small interest is so broad. Bodley identified with an entire political party. Well, the NRA has increasingly thrown in its lot with the Republican party that that's a relative change in the last call at thirty years, historically, the NRA has endorsed more Republicans, the Democrats nationally that tend to be on the whole more conservative. But the parties were more Hama more heterogeneous thirty years ago. And certainly the Republican party was increasingly however, really beginning with the George W Bush campaign in presidency. They've identified much more closely with the Republican party, and it's an ideologically better fit. The NRA itself is a an organization where its members are pretty homogeneous in terms of their political views, obviously, they're United by their interest in guns in gun rights, and also they share certain attitudes and beliefs about.

"Also add to that to that that Paul Ryan is also even as he has had this public kind of refusal to criticize Trump Trump accountable, and these private reservations, his super Pac and the ads that he has been connected to have kind of played into this base politics. So it's sort of it's almost as if he has set a trap for himself and stepped into it. What do you make of that? I mean, what do you make of that relationship with Trumpism? Well, newsflash. I mean, Paul Ryan is a hyper partisan. I mean, the ticket to getting elected, whether it's you or whether it's your caucus in this particular Republican landscape, whether he likes it or not, is to just play that game. That's sort of what he's done. I mean, I'm. Intrigued by like there's this weird backlash going on this week about how dare George W Bush campaign for Republicans. Like did people forget that the guys like a partisan Republican? I mean, yes, there's all this kind of nostalgia filtered through the lens of what we've all seen around the Trump era. But I mean, this is who they are. These are Republicans. Remember what Republicans do. They did this five years ago. They do it now, and Donald Trump is, isn't the game changer in the minds of Republicans who want to get reelected or help their friends get reelected that you know that that is the vehicle for liberal wish fulfillment that maybe people would want them to be. So Lindsey, Graham with someone who didn't participate in this capitulation until he went, he is like, has the zealotry of convert. I mean, he is all in. What do you make of that? I would say he has his Ella Trie of someone who wants to get reelected in South Carolina and who's got nowhere else to go. I mean, that's that whether to conduct, but it self perpetuation that simple. Yeah, I do think it's and you know, look, it's stronger than any kind of loyalty maybe to some degree at for John McCain. Because I think in many ways, you just can't circle that square man like John McCain was so out far. I mean everything that John McCain stood for in the last two years. His funeral stood for you just can't. I don't. I don't see how Lindsey Graham could justify it, but no, it's about getting reelected. So I wanted to ask you. So you're at this book this town, which was made a lot of really sort of captivated people and how it describe Washington DC before Trump came to town. This was a culture that existed through administrations that didn't care whether you're democrat or Republican that was sort of valueless interested in power and connection undergird ings Perpetuo perpetual wealthy except for self perpetuation and lack of connection to the consequences of politics. Well, here we are. Donald Trump is president. How has this town. Changed or has it changed because of Donald Trump? That's a great question. First of all, it hasn't changed at all. I mean, it it it is. It is wealthier. The only thing that changes in Washington. This was like the premise of this people just kept getting richer and there is permanent class and Trump has made it. You know, it's like a kind of gold plated hot tub now. But I mean first of all, if you wanna make the swamp, the rhetorical vehicle here sheriff swamps alive and well. I mean Russia. It's Flers Maas. There's Maas. Yeah, at the Trump hotel, you're into the Trump hotel. There's moss everywhere, locked during protests. That's the most have gotten, you know, that thing they do would like the prison. They that video that thing where they put things on the wall of that was kind of cool. I love that. Love that can do that. Do that. I, I don't know how the lights work. Yeah. I guess one question I had about it is, you know these, these people the the, that that sort of our this enduring class that lives through administrations..

Always the best show that they did a thing on cheerleaders. They were by the way the first ones like five years ago, did it thing about how cheerleaders are not paid? Now? They're saying we should take away the cheerleaders. Maybe the time is calm. Know they took away the pageant bathing suits and stuff, whatever. But as Brian, why don't why don't they just take away the militarism. I kind of liked the cheerleaders. Texas. Why do we have to mix football? The season just started.

You know, the fly overs and the flag on the field singing and baseball has two songs now, like they sing the national anthem at the beginning in the seventh ending.
