"John's merrick. What's on your mind. Well i just finished reading the letter of ashley. Abbott's mother responding to george. W bush ashley bavin whose daughter answered george bush's call and joined the us and fought in iraq in our air force and then protested on january six. You know she committed a crime of trespassing.

We're never going to know you know what maybe general milley can do. He could do us a solid and go behind the back of the Current fake president. And maybe he could get that name to us because he's a stand up guy. He cares about america. She was shot dead by a capital police officer. For no reason she wasn't carrying seven. She wasn't threatening anyone. And here. George w bush. The man who in a sense lured her into the us military. She signed up because of his war on terror. Here he is equating. Ashley babbitt to muhammad atta and all those other filthy jihadi psych psych of ads who attacked our hometown. I think it is for us to establish why we think this is such a despicable thing for the former president to have said it's deeply shameful. He seems to be in bed with whatever you call at the deep state i mean look. His father was cia. His father was as deep state president as it gets. But i really believe w was different from his father. Oh yes he appoints cheney and rumsfeld. But i did not believe because i thought this men's an evangelical christian he's from texas.

"george w. bush" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"George W. Bush gave a speech in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Saturday. And if you want to know Just how wrong the speech was. Here's what President Biden said. I thought the President Bush made a really good speech today. Genuinely Really genuinely. So there he was. I didn't. I didn't see it live. But a friend of mine had sent me a text and said You might want to find it online him. Listen to it. We both work together. He had worked in the White House while I was there. So I looked it up and there he was. And value way I can describe it is He really did compare Those People that protested on January six. And let me let me draw a distinction. Between those who attended attended a Trump rally on January six. And then marched up to the capital as they have every right to do. To protest and did so peacefully. I know Several people were there. There were famous people that I know there were there. None of whom went inside, none of whom went inside the U. S Capitol building. They saw what was going on, and they saw that it was the beginning to get out of hand. And they turned and they left. But the president President Bush. Who the hell would ground of Shanksville, Pennsylvania to commemorate The first counterattack. That's the best way to describe the first counter attack of the American people against the radical Islamists. Did it really? I think this service to the day because he compared the Islamist cutthroats of September 11th to the Trump supporting Americans. Who were protesting on January six. The perpetrators of the former event. We were bent on no less than bringing them United States to its knees, Murder 2977 people that day. The perpetrators of the latter event. Now I want to group them all together. I'm going to group together those friends of mine famous actors and others that you know Jon Voight next, seriously, all the rest of them Who were there for that Trump rally who marched up to the capital, Plus those who went into the building..

He went to shanksville pennsylvania to the field where flight ninety three crashed off to those brave brave men took it back from the territory. Terrorists to save lives in dc and this is what he said on the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven. This is the man who was president. When nine eleven happened cut to play cup little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home.

The Afghanistan Nightmare That George Bush Envisioned Has Arrived
"Look at why. We're in afghanistan in the first place. The nightmare that george bush envisioned is here. The nightmare has arrived and that is at ghanistan. now is being run by the taliban. It's gonna be a a clearinghouse for terrorists who of course aimed to destroy us. That's why we were in afghanistan in the first place now. We can debate how long we should have been there. You can debate when we leave. You could argue. I think convincingly that it was inevitable that the taliban was gonna take over afghanistan when we left but at the very least you had to get the american people out before you pull. The military inviting didn't do that
MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace: '95 Percent of Americans Will Agree' With Biden Speech on Afghanistan
"Of the worst of the worst is a woman named nicole wallace over msnbc. She's like a never-trumper on steroids. I think she worked for bush. If i'm not mistaken back in the day. She's like the kind of republican wink wink. That msnbc likes and she is beyond vicious. And it's so weird because she's like such a such a pleasant demeanor and nice pleasant smile and you see her. And then what comes out of her mouth is pure vitriol. But she's such a sycophant and so to the democrats. What are george.

Ninety five percent of the american people will agree with everything he just said. Ninety five percent of the press covering this white house will disagree and for an american president to finally be completely aligned with such an overwhelming majority of what the american people think about. Afghanistan is probably a tremendous relief to the american people on. Can't even i have a president who's finally aligned with the american people because nicole wallace. This angry vicious miserable trump hating biden loving msnbc host decided that ninety five percent of the american people agreed with biden speech yesterday.
It's Time to Show Our Strength as Conservatives
"With me. But many of the things that I say behind this microphone, take hold in parts of this society or take hold in parts of the conservative movement. Whether it was March 2017 and I explained that They've been spying on President Trump and his campaign. You all remember all the crap we took for that? Whether it's pushing the idea of sanctuary, Second Amendment cities and states Whether it's explaining that the federal Constitution authorizes state legislatures to make changes to laws, not judges, not attorneys, general, not governors. Not bureaucrats. I can remember when we fought the so called comprehensive immigration reform that George Bush was pushed When so many others in this business said they're not activists. I said, like Hell, I am Member that Mr Producer That's a long time ago. Or the tea party movement. So many things that we've been together so many things that we have witnessed together. And yet, here we are today. Looking into the abyss. But I have no intention to jumping into you and I have no intention of being pushed into you. No. So it's time for push back. It's time to show our strength.

The Mystery Of The Pennhurst Asylum
"The eastern pennsylvania institution for the feeble minded and epileptic later called pinehurst asylum was originally established as a facility for the disabled opened in nineteen o eight. The property contained in array of buildings all scattered around large tracts of farmland in chester county. Thirty miles outside of philadelphia though it might sound like it was designed for care and comfort. The reality was anything. But the institute was first created to house intellectually and developmentally disabled people alongside those who suffered from epilepsy but this strategy was unwise as such patients had very different needs. What's worse is that. Many of the institutions goals were based on the nineteenth century eugenics movement proponents of the movement believed that the human gene pool should be protected and anyone deemed. Genetically inferior. Should be prevented from reproducing by forced sterilization or segregation from the rest of society. For this reason. People with certain kinds of disabilities whose families could not care for them were sent to penn hearst. Most of them came as infants or children. Girls and boys are separated into different buildings. So there wouldn't be any sexual mixing in the decades since the institution closed a slew of modern day rumors claim that penn hurst carried out forced sterilizations on its patients. But while sterilization did occur at similar institutions in the united states. There was actually no record of it at pinehurst. Rumors of the institute's horrific procedures ran rampant. The last perhaps this is because the hospital was shrouded in an era of mystery it operated almost completely independently of the outside world. It had its own power plant and produced its own. Food and supplies were brought in by a special rail. Line pen hurts was designed so that no one from the outside could get in but more importantly so that no one on the inside could ever get out. Georgie was carrying a stack of folded sheets toward the finish piles. When he noticed a girl arguing with an orderly. George stopped in his tracks. She had long shiny hair and was pointing a finger directly at him confidently shouting and screaming. He was instantly captivated and continued to watch her but eventually to more orderlies came over to give her a shot. And take away georgie side. Good things never lasted. Long at penn harris georgia's mother had left him there when he was only three. He never knew why not what he done or where she'd gone he'd been stuck in this place for twelve years and he knew it like the back of his hand. He knew that when the girl got taken away it was the last he'd see of her or so he thought The next day georgy walked into the laundry building at his heart nearly stopped there. She was if he someone else. He could've tapped on her shoulder and introduced himself but as it was he could barely manage breathing and walking at the same time. Georgie said down in front of his pile of sheets and started cursing himself for being so shy and that was when someone tapped him on the shoulder turned. The girl was standing behind him. A fitted sheet in her hand. She has georgie how to fold it. Her name was kerry. No one was happy to be. A pen harassed. But carrie was indignant about it. She said she didn't belong there. That was why she'd been fighting with the orderly.

"george w. bush" Discussed on WLS-AM 890
"Former president Trump sent four executive orders in the first week of his tenure with a total of 220 executive order, signed in his total time is president from President Barack Obama signed five in the first week 276 overall When President George W. Bush signed zero in his first week, former President Bill Clinton signed one in his first week. Residential. Biden has signed a 28 in the first six days. Apparently he signed a few more means he is up to 33. He is up to 33 executive orders and these executive orders our policy making instruments. What We're executive orders originally meant to do not this Generally an executive order, and I've been very much anti executive orders. Since as long as I remember, because this is not how the constitution was supposed to operate. In fact, If you look in the Constitution, you'll notice there is no verbiage with regard to executive orders. There is no phrase executive orders. In fact, there's no fresh presidential proclamations. Ah, lot of the stuff that presidents used these days is not actually in the Constitution. So what exactly are executive orders? Well, they've been used since the beginning of the Republic, Essentially to allow the executive branch to effectuate the will of the Legislature. The idea was, the Legislature tells the executive branch to do something, and now the executive branch has to do it. But the Legislature has not been specific enough and how they want the executive branch to do it. And so now, the executive branch has to effectuate that. Right, zero. My wife tells me that she wants me to clean the dishes. I'm gonna fill in all the blanks. Okay, I need to use a sponge. I need to use the soap right? That would be the executive order. My wife's mandate to clean the dishes is the Legislature and I am the executive who is now in charge of cleaning the dishes. They're a bunch of things I have to do in order to make that happen, And that is how the delegation is supposed to work. Legislature, delegates power to the executive and the executive uses the power that has been delegated. Unfortunately, that is not what has happened. And it's not rare for presidents to overrun their executive authority. The difference is that now nobody seems to care. It really is quite incredible. Essentially, What we have in this country is a is a congress that sometimes passes Giant omnibus package. Is that spend a lot of money. And delegates tremendous authority to the executive branch, which is staffed by two million people. Hundreds of thousands in various under the auspices of various regulatory agencies. They turn out tens of thousands of pages of regulations that are highly specific and govern your everyday.

'The King of Talk': Remembering Larry King
"Larry King has died. He was 87 in a career that spanned 60 years. Larry King interviewed just about everybody. Reporter Jeff Lunden has this appreciation. With his trademark suspenders and his deep baritone voice tinged with a Brooklyn accent. Larry King spoke with Presidents George Bush is our honored guest for the full hour. Next on Larry King Live World leaders Moammar Qaddafi. The leader of the nation of Libya, celebrities, the brilliant Barbra Streisand, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes and on and on and on. I'm always engrossed in the guest. Larry King spoke with Jesse Thorn on the turnaround podcast in 2017. I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, So I guess I'm better every day at learning. The Brooklyn born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity when we would go to dodge it. All my friends wanted autographs at the injury. I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players is they're going to their cars asking questions. Why'd you bunt? Why they do this in the third inning. My curiosity is still insatiable. King began his career is a DJ in Miami, and it's where he got his name is well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger was too ethnic. He chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper. By the late 19 seventies, King had an overnight talk show on national radio. Then the 1985 Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author. Bill Carter, who's a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect. Picking up something like Larry King may love sense because he had Establish himself kind of as a guy who could get big guests. They could have big names and promoted and became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup, and King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lob softball questions. It is guests. His strategy was I'm never gonna make the guests uncomfortable. And that means not only will they come back, but they'll tell their friends. He won't ask you about that ugly divorce of yours. You know, he'll ask you about your favorite movie, so he didn't challenge people, But he did get information. He was pretty good at that, like when he talked with ex President Richard Nixon. Well, I don't want to dwell in the Watergate thing that's been covered so well. But some personal things when you drive by Those collections of buildings. The hotel the two apartment houses the office building, You feel weird, funny. No, I never give it a thought. Never given a thought. Never given a thought. That's one place where you just don't look back. As far as Watergate is. I know you don't look up at the buildings themselves. Not at all. Not a matter of fact, I've never been in the Watergate. Larry King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews, the less I know. Better Now, That sounds strange to people. Like If you wrote a book. I wouldn't read the book for interview do because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book, but King knew the national zeitgeist. He covered the first O. J. Simpson trial every night, says Bill Carter. He basically started the cable monomania move. We're going to just cover this story. That's it In a way. It was perfect for life because it was celebrity oriented. It was in the news, but it was not political. Ultimately, CNN canceled King show because it wasn't political competition from Fox and MSNBC took its toll on the ratings. But King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had Quinn couple bypass surgery after a massive heart attack, and King took his talk show to streaming video and kept on working for NPR news. I'm Jeff Lunden in New York.
"george w. bush" Discussed on KDWN 720AM
"New taxes, 18 million new jobs and reduce help. Do we lose Jim agree new deal, So I just hope that that everybody remembers kind of what he promised and see if he produces. Well, that's a very valid point, Jim and I think that we need to hold our politicians accountable. I completely agree with you. Um, we gotta give a little bit of time. Obviously, as I gave Donald Trump time, Mexico did not build the wall. We don't have a new health care plan. But Jim going to what you said. I agree with you, 100% and mark my words. I don't care if some people might not believe me, But I went on the air when I talked about Barack Obama and I criticized him, too. By the way, I didn't vote for Barack Obama twice. I think Barack Obama was an average president, but a very, very good man. But you know, there's some things he didn't do very well. And I think you would agree with that. He wasn't a perfect president. He made mistakes. I didn't like some of his policies, but decent man. Classy man. Classy family. I would say the same thing about the Bush shut the George W. Bush today in the inauguration, Jim, you know, giving Carmela Harris a hug being there and you know the the the Obama's in the Bushes. Class. That's what's the best way I would value class over what George George W. Bush did. He went to war for oil. Okay, so, Brian, we've spent $7 trillion in wars. We shouldn't even be in the first place. You'd like to have a conversation about rags. Think it's really interesting. How? How, lance your question then we can move on value. I'll answer your question. We're going to move on. Do you know why Joe? Answer your question, Which you asked me and then you know, I'll answer. You could be a question. Why do it First of all, I think if you have character, you will be a better president than if you don't have character. Now. I don't agree. By the way. I don't believe it was George W. Bush on I don't want really want to get into the weeds and off topic, which is exactly what I don't want to do which what we're doing right now. But I believe Dick Cheney was the main man responsible behind the war in Iraq. Who is the president? Okay? I agree. I wish you would hold Donald Trump. I wish for the last four years. Who was the press? I wish for the last four years, you would have done the same thing with Donald. It's interesting. I think that when politicians when they say the right thing when they have class, and when they look like they're decent human beings, this allows them to be very, very non decent human beings on the other side and do things like like, Enter a war and lie about why we're there. Claims for weapons of mass destruction. Were there never were any and it really and really the real reason why we were there, right? I mean, we risk all these all these, you're absolutely American lines. We spent all this money. When war was because of oil, but since but since George W. Bush said the right things and look the right way and talked about it, and Obama did the exact same thing and Bible do the exact same thing. It allows them to get the trust of the American people and then and then do terrible things to people. I didn't say that. That's what that's what he doesn't like. Donald Trump is such interesting. President Donald Trump didn't Lee didn't hit me? He looked the part, but he didn't say the right things at all. Okay. So here's wasn't trying to. He wasn't trying to say the right things looked the part. Get to trust the American people and then deceived them, like the other presidents, and I believe that Joe Biden Okay, So here's what I would like to say to respond to that JD is incorrect. I I appreciate the call. By the way, General. I do believe it was a show of class for George W. Bush to show up at the organ inauguration today and do what he did. I also didn't support George W. Bush. I thought he was a horrible president. So what you're saying is it doesn't make any sense. I don't support George W. Bush. I don't think he deserved to be the president of the United States. I think he was a trust fund, baby, just like Donald Trump. I don't support George W. Bush all I'm simply saying and I were Heated again, which is this what I saw today and what I've seen it.

US 'Safe Harbor' Day Reinforces Biden’s Electoral Victory
"This week marked the so-called safe harbor deadline when states have certified the results for the us presidential election typically by the harvard deadline lection related challenges at the state level or all wrapped up but president trump is continuing to claim without proof that the results in many of the states that voted for joe biden are fraudulent and should be tossed out a lawsuit filed by the state attorney general of texas and supported by the president as well as seventeen republican. State's attorney general and over one hundred. Republican members of the house is asking the supreme court to overturn the results of the election in four states carried by biden. Pennsylvania georgia wisconsin and michigan. That would bring biden below the two hundred seventy electoral college votes. He would need to be the president-elect elect so how can an election certified and contested helping us to make sense of it. All is our friend. Barbara perry the presidential studies director at the university of virginia's miller center she begins by explaining who the electors are and what the electoral college actually does elect doors. One might need them as delegates to this thing called the electoral college. Actually have a t shirt that says property of the athletic department of the electoral college. Which i love that. The politics department at uva gave all of the graduate students at one point. But it's not really a place it's a is it. Is this group of electors. They are chosen typically by a method that is determined by the state legislatures in each and that concept spelled out in the constitution that the legislatures of the states get to choose the manner in which these electoral college delegates or electors will be chosen and that can be through a primary system much as the presidential. Candidates are selected. It can be through a convention of the party in a state but typically these are people who are party leaders. One might call them. Party regulars party activists the only thing that they cannot be is a federal office holder so for example a senator member's house representatives. A member of the cabinet could not participate as an elector but typically it is determined the methodist election by the state legislatures and then really turning it over to the party organizations in each state to choose. This will call it a slate of electors. So then let's walk through what happens. We have the election. We have as we've seen especially this year the states. Sometimes it takes a little longer than some states. Take a little longer than others to certify the results and then we have something known as safe harbor day which happened this week on tuesday december. Eighth can you explain what that is. Yes i in legal terms particularly as it's used in this context of an election. Is that once. This date is set as this is the safe harbor. And once you state certifies your election results you by that date. Then get to be in the safe harbor where your determination and your certification of that election should not be prone to any more of the storm in the seas and the roiling that could come from those who might be questioning the election and its results and so that's where we are now so help us understand this barbara. Because we've passed the safe harbor day we know that every state has certified its electors and yet the texas attorney general is filing a lawsuit or has filed a lawsuit asking the supreme court to block the electors from four states. How can this be possible given that the safe harbor. Data's already passed. I agree with you on asking that question and my answer to that would be what an irony think. Back to two thousand. Think back to the bush. V gore controversy which was much closer because remember that the florida recount that was being requested by al gore Because he was just a few votes behind probably about three to five hundred votes behind. George bush in that popular vote count in florida and whichever person was going to be certified and deemed. The winner of florida was going to exactly end up with two hundred two hundred seventy votes necessary to win the electoral college. So that's how razor send those margins were so understandably al gore was going to keep pressing. But here's the historical irony that republicans were saying on behalf of george bush. Oh safe harbor day is approaching so we really must wrap up and stop this recount in florida and the. Us supreme court accepted that argument by the bush side and said we cannot violate this concept of the safe harbor. Florida must certify its vote and indeed the recount stop. Florida certified their votes which showed that bush had won by sort of three to five hundred votes. That was it and that was it for gore. so by view is isn't an irony that the republican party. This time round led by at this point that commander in chief himself but the attorney general of texas joined by what sixteen seventeen other attorneys general. Republicans in states are now completely violating that concept of. Let's really pay attention to and follow the safe harbor rule right i think many constitutional scholars would also argue that. It's unlikely the supreme court is even going to take this case nonetheless rule on it but the fact is we do know at this point that every single state has certified. It's election correct. That is correct.
US presidential election: A turbulent transfer of power
"Peaceful. Transfer of power is a cornerstone of american democracy. Right now president. Trump is not only refusing to concede this election. He's also denying the incoming biden administration access to key documents funding information. They need to ensure a safe and smooth transition now. The formal transition process is actually a pretty new thing. Congress passed the presidential transition act just over fifty years ago. Em things proceeded from there with relatively little drama or problems until two thousand versus the mission of george. Bush is not up for me to accept or reject the legal process. You know. let's just watch this happen. It'll be over soon. We'll be ready for transition. It wasn't until weeks after that. Bill clinton cabinet meeting december twelve thirty five days after the election that george w bush was officially declared the winner that gave then president elect bush just over a month to plan for and staff his administration course nine months later the september eleventh terrorist attacks happened catching the nation and a relatively new president off guard when the nine eleven commission report came out in two thousand four. It pointed to this truncated transition as a weakness and recommended a more formalized process katherine dunn tempests at senior fellow at the university of virginia's miller center the senior research director at the white house transition project so laws were passed in the two thousands or spin sort of three sets of laws that have been passed to kinda they keep refining it and keep refining it but what they did primarily is that they enable the winning candidates to receive funding to start their transitions after they were formerly so that meant that once biden was the democratic nominee. He was eight. He was provided with all space some funding for salaries and the ability to start planning ahead. Talked to us a little bit. About how worried you are or how worried we should be as americans about this as you pointed out the attacks on nine eleven happened not that long after president bush took office. If something happens january or february of this coming year would the biden administration be potentially a unable to respond because they just simply didn't have the staffing and they didn't have the time to ramp up and be ready. Let me back up. Just a bit to point out that There are basically two important phases of the transition. The i i pointed out was after the nominee has been formally nominated by the party and they received some resources the next big transfer resources comes after the head of the gsa has ascertained the next president united states and they use that verbiage. Esser that verb. I'm not really sure why but And that's the point at which the president the incoming president can start to have access to classified material that can start to be part of the president's daily brief with Tells them all the national security issues. It enables the biden transition team to have access to all of these individuals civil servants and political appointees at the various agencies so that they can interview them. So what's happening now. Is they are preventing the biden from moving to the next phase. And what i would argue is the most important phase at the transition. It's critically important that the biden staff members be able to go to the department of justice francis and to be able to interview. Fbi director the head of the criminal division the head of the national security division to try to get a sense since of. What's the lay of the land where the priorities. What are the crises. That might be boiling over by the time we get here. And that's what they're being denied so. I think there should be a lot of concern about this. The the inability to advance to the next stage of the transition. It's not to say that it's going to necessarily result in some sort of crises that but we want a country that's prepared so it strikes me as were basically just sort of harming ourselves for no apparent reason and were inhibiting our ability to be in the best possible situation. We can be on january twentieth. And there's no reason for that. We have the resources we have the capacity. So why so. Let's talk about the. Why and and the who so. Emily murphy is a name that most of us probably weren't familiar with until now she is a person who is at the head of the. Gsa can you talk a little bit about how her role what her role is. And how much leeway. She has to continue to refuse to release these funds or to allow the biden team to start integrating with the outgoing trump administration. So emily murphy is the administrator of the gsa. It's a political appointment in the gsa. It's office is largely responsible for all the government real estate so they helped provide office space and oversee office space You know in in most situations would never even hear of the essay in this particular case because the legislation housed it in the gsa. She has the capacity to release the funding and the resources to the party. Nominees and then eventually to the president-elect by law she is the one that has to ascertain the election so there will be no funding going out until she does it. So what's tying our hands. I mean she is a by president trump. She must be a republican. Who has some loyalty to this administration and is unwilling to buck the advice. She's getting probably for mark meadows. Probably the chief-of-staff sues weighing on her.
Reasons Everyone Should Visit Houston
"Should someone come to houston. texas acetate. don't really think about houston all about when they hear houston is a space center. Houston actually has i think. It's supposedly had the most restaurants per capita so there's a lot of food here. It has a really good population mix because of his proximity to mexico. You get what's called tex-mex which is a kind of mikla. Mr for mexican in texas food i guess or american footprint is quite good and there's also other large ethnic populations here so you'll find Didn't population here and there is actually some folks from other african dies poorer. That's here as well. There's really lot more to do than people think plus is all the major sports teams are here so there is quite a bit to do that. They just don't think about and all day but think about it's a space center but that's just one thing that you can do houston. I cannot verify the top ten restaurants per capita in the. Us list does not seem to have. Although strangely enough it does hit my hometown of san jose california issue. San francisco is being number one which i believe. 'cause nobody there cooks but guess. What would you recommend that somebody do when they come to houston. I actually have a huge list of things that people can do. I was bored one day and came up with. I think about forty five three things that you can do in houston for different free things. Yes no shortage of things to do in houston itself. Museum district is actually very large. Most people that come to houston they are here for oil because those are the Ahead of his hair they also come down for the medical center and when united was based here it might have been the largest employer at the time but i don't case anymore so there is a slew of museums at least eighteen or sally's eighteen free ones. Anyway we also have a lot of parks like any large city and because there's so much oil. Many in houston is a lot of people giving money to the parks into the parks action. A very well developed than really. Well kept. Well as i told you ahead of time. I'm gonna get you into more specifics. So okay where should we start all right. So can we talk about transportations. Says the airline guy. Alan guy right. He said has to year. Boy says a hobby airport. Which up until a few. I guess last week was dominated by south west but then southwest is now going to have flight sida houston intercontinental airport and in the continent airports named after george bush. Not the son but the father although the bush's actually live here in houston so transportation wise And they are actually connected to the city but by buses. Everybody drives in. Houston if you come the best thing for you to do if you really want to get around the city. I guess efficiently is to rent a car. There is a local bus service that it was like one or two that comes from it takes about him and only cost dollar twenty five cents to get from houston intercontinental downtown houston and then there is the eighty eight. I think it is now that goes from houston hobby into downtown houston and methodology and a quarter. But i would recommend getting a car because it's so easy to city is very large and getting a car is probably the best way to get around and then we're going to start. We can actually start downtown so once you get your car. You're jumping forty five and you head south into into downtown as you're driving into downtown you can see the city if you want. You can stay out by the airports airports Tells around there but if you come into houston you might as well come. Stay in the city center. You can stay downtown. Houston they have all all the major chains they here. There is actually a myriad married which has the pool in the shape of texas. So yeah i haven't gone there yet but it's actually quite cool. I've seen pictures of it and there's also the hilton which is across georgia. Lebron's convention thinkers houston is a big convention city when they have cooled show which these things anymore but when they used to have the show. You could not find a hotel room in houston and the city is about. I think we're up to seven and a half million people in houston. It is the fourth largest city in the union. So i would actually get downtown. i once. you're downtown There is discovery green and discovered green is actually a park. And it's right by the georgia brown Any literally sits between the myra one side and the hilton on the other side and off to the left of that is the minute maid park which is where the baseball team. The houston astros place. Now if one thing about maid park is if you're into trains and says very old city if you go to most of us cities you'll find a union station right right and most of them are still being used as stations while the one in houston is not it is now where when you go to the astros. That is the hall big hall that you normally have for stations. Dave turned that into the entrance to the ballpark.

Its integrity will be upheld, and its outcome is clear. He says that in a statement that no matter how you voted your vote counted and the former President Bush Second President George W. Bush says President Donald Trump has the right to request recounts and pursue legal challenges with any unresolved issues to be properly adjudicated. In his words, Bush says Now is the time when we must come together for the sake of our families and neighbors and for our nation and future. President elect Joe Biden will launch and agency review team this week. It's the group of transition staffers that has access to key agencies in the current administration to smooth over that transition of power. Eric Cam, a political analyst for the BBC, talk to Dmitri and myself about what kind of changes we can expect in Washington. We're already seeing them play out. We heard from the president elect yesterday, saying that he will announce this task force on Monday. That will begin looking at what type of policies he can implement something he hits the ground regarding Corona virus. In addition to that, I think, given that Joe Biden has been in Washington and as you say, a creature of Washington for so long, I think also, what we will see from this president is an olive branch, particularly to the opposition party. Given where we think the makeup may lie and the Senate in particular, But I think what you will see it Joe Biden's emphasis on governing and Mohr importantly in order to do that he has to work with Congress, and if there is continued divided government that's going to make his work. Even more difficult, given he will be the first president along time to actually have the opposition party in control of one of the branches of Congress. And so I think that's something that he will have to address. But again, I think, given those long and historic relationship that he has I think he will being heavily on them to begin to move things immediately soon as he hits the ground running regarding that agency review team. Have you heard any stories about a lack of cooperation from the Trump Administration? Because they do have to work together here during this transition? You know, I think that's actually one of the most under reported stories is the transition process that actually has been playing out for quite some time. Now this is actually Constitution and legally mandated to happen or what we do know is that process has actually been moving pretty smoothly. We do know that the Trump team has been working with The Biden team providing those clearances so that that the Biden team or is able to get many of their people in place as soon as they'll need to. Ah, no, I think that's one of the stories where we were. We do actually find cooperation between the Trump administration and the biting team, and I hope that gets mohr notice and attention in the days ahead. We've heard a Joe Biden say that one of his first goals is to unite the country. Is that going to be his biggest challenge off the block? Oh, absolutely. It will be, but not only when we talk about uniting the country, I think one of the you know the first things we automatically think about is how do you bring in those 70 million Trump supporters. Into a governing structure. But also we have to recognize that Joe Biden also has some work to do within his own party as well. There are those far less progressives who believe that they played a role in the victory. You know, what's that saying? Winning? Has you know many, many hands moving is an orphan or something like that. And I think Joe Biden is going to have his work cut out to try to find the lane for progressives in the party because we're already hearing some sniping that the transition team is looking at some Republicans. Who Biden may actually put into his Cabinet. Now, that's not unusual. We have seen George W. Bush have Democrats in his Cabinet. Barack Obama certainly had Republicans in Hiss. Donald Trump did not have people from the opposite party and his to the larger but I think there's going to be work for fighting to do not only on the right but also on the far left as well.

"Pay welcome Russian interference in the election. And the report lays down eleven instances of obstruction of Justice by the president of the United States. I tell you this is like coming home for me. I listened to this, and I listened to posts Pelosi misrepresent what is in the Muller report, just a feed this beast. She literally has these Lewis. The democrat party is created these people and not just the past two and a half years. They have been creating this lunatic base and feeding it. Intensely since the George W Bush administration, both terms, but it is really now come to feeding frenzy. They have told their base, so many outrageous things, and their base has believed all of it, including that Trump isn't traitor, including the Trump colluded with Russia, including that he stole election. They have created they've done it on college campus. They have created this, this gigantic group of people who are walking around believing a bunch of lies and they've lost control over it. Now. But it's their own fault because they fed these people, the Democrats went way overboard in their mass extremism, making sure everybody got the message and they kept pummeling people with it, that eventually in fact, even half the elected Democrats have now bought into these things that are now abject, demonstrable lies. So she's out there, trying to explain trying to feed the beast with these stupid comments. The president's campaign welcomed Russian interference in the election. It did not. There wasn't any coordination. The report says, so Trump did not welcome any Russian interference in the campaign. But they've got to tell these lunatics. Did you see what happened on, I think it was Saturday or maybe Friday at that convention? Some wacko got hold of a press lanyard and walked on the stage and took away the microphone from Kamala Harris. She was sitting there going on about some brainless thing she was saying, maybe it was. I don't know what she was talking animal rights or some such thing. And some guy just walks up on the stage. He's got all the press credentials, long haired, maggot-infested Rockin roller type and just walks right up to her, and nobody stops him and takes the microphone from her. And she just sits there. And then the moderator and some uh, sir. Sir, sir. That's not how we assert and this guy gets rambling on about climate change. Is some such stir? We don't do it. And finally, her husband gets any act here and starts hustling, the guy off the stage. Douglas healthman Hoffman of whatever she leaves the stage never to be seen again. And they take this wacko off the stage. I just let it walk up there and take them because this guy, she wasn't saying this guy wanted to hear they have created everybody thinks that the Trump rally crowds of his brainless maniacs books. It's the exact opposite. It is these people at democrat conventions democrat rallies, who are truly truly. They are a powder. Keg waiting to explode? Do not doubt me on this. And the democrat party has created this group of people, and they have to keep feeding it because they need their money they need their votes. These people want Trump frogmarch they want worse than that they want. They don't want Trump jelly want him executed. They want capital punishment. Trump, and these Democrats are not acting on it, and they're getting frustrated out there, trying to talk around impeachment. We're going to do it, but maybe but not now we're thinking about it, but we got they don't wanna anyway, any hesitation whatsoever. They want Trump and they want it now, and Kamala Harris isn't going to do it Pelosi, you're going to do what they're going to storm the stage. And try to make it happen themselves. I was really struck by the, the lack. Of secure. And this guy by the what was not an maybe little tall. But he's this long beard, as a mega infested dope. Silken rock and roller type democrat party is known for these people. He could have been an Obama commercial about ObamaCare, you'll having little garden in the backyard and waiting for every government, check this, and that he just trolls up on stage and takes her Mike. Why she sits there and doesn't do thing about it. And nobody did for thirty five seconds or so. And then they Sarah, would you please? Hey, this is not rather than getting some beefy people up there and hustle, this guy off the stage. They tried talking to him. And he keeps preaching about climate change. I just and now Pelosi being heckled. President campaign welcomed Russian interference. In the election. And the report lays out eleven instances of possible, obstruction of and the we know this, we've done this for two years. You've told us that Trump stolen election. They don't want to hear this. They wanna hear how Trump is going to be executed folks, by the way grab sound byte number twenty Michael Casey. Former federal judge former attorney general, he's got a reputation equal to that, if William bar when I tell you that will Casey is a good guy. Don't doubt me Casey was on Sunday morning futures with, I think it was Maria Varsha Romo. I'm not sure and he was on the way to making a great point. And I think got interrupted by a commercial break computer driven commercial break. He said, when you look at the informants and the wiretapping in the abuse of the Feis, accorded, just seems so bad. This is Mary Archer Romo, AFC question, do you think we're actually going to see it count ability because the left is trying to take bar down. Right.

"Every election cycle when you don't vote. You let another church explode when you don't vote. Allow another frost the when you don't vote. You let another assault wound up brother or sister. When you don't vote you. Let the Republicans continue to cut school lunches man hit start. Really? So when you don't vote you let another church explode. And this was. Aimed primarily at minority voters in Missouri. You allow another cross to burn, you know, in two thousand I won't play it. But you know, there was the infamous James bird ad in the. What it said is on June, seventh nineteen ninety eight in Texas. My father was killed. This was the horrific horrible dragging death that took place there. Anyway, he was beaten changed and then dragged three miles to his death all because he was black. So when George W Bush the governor refused to support hate crimes legislation. That was like my father was killed all over again. There's only one missing fact here, George W Bush's governor supported the death penalty for James bird. And the evil that was perpetrated upon this this man, that's just pure evil. And we can predict this every two in four years. You know? But you gotta remember everyone seems to forget the party Lincoln is the Republican party, the emancipation proclamation, the Republican party, the party of segregation, the southern manifesto will that would be the Democratic Party nineteen fifty-six Democrats introduced that manifesto, the document resisting the supreme court decision Brown versus board of education ruling in segregation in in segregation in schools or you look at the people and the associates of prominent Democrats, everyone seems to ignore them. Magin a Republican who said my mentor and praised his mentor all the time was J William Fulbright praised Clinton praised him throughout his entire career. He was a segregationist. You look at for example. It was the terms of the southern manifesto. It was prominently signed by democratic members of congress and only two Republicans supported that. Go back to the nineteen sixties. This is some of the most important legislation in our country's history. The Civil Rights Act the Voting Rights Act. Well, those same Democrats tried to stop it. Let's see Al Gore's father among them. And then you have people like, oh, the guy that would rise to be the former klansman grand poobah of the Ku Klux Klan, Robert Byrd, Robert KKK bird. You know, oh, he was praised by all these prominent Democrats. But if you go back to sixty four in the Voting Rights Act in the civil sixty five the Voting Rights Act, sixty four the Civil Rights Act, one hundred twelve Democrats in congress voted against the Civil Rights Act of sixty four they were the party against it. Sixty five against seventy eight Democrats voted against it only twenty five Republicans voted. No that's fairly recent history. George Wallace pro segregationists standing in front of the schoolhouse store. That was oh, a democrat Al Gore's father J William Fulbright, Robert Byrd, all Democrats. Robert Byrd fairly recently. Never ever forget. The interview. Why did he get a pass? All the time. Herald Hillary Clinton wants Senator Robert Byrd quote. He was a man of surpassing eloquence and nobility from my first day in the Senate. I saw it out his guidance, and he was always generous with his time in his wisdom. I admired his pilot's advocacy for his West Virginia constituents as secretary of state. I continue to rely on his advice and counsel her mentor today, our country has lost a true American original, my friend and mentor, Robert Seaford, Senator Byrd was a man of surpassing eloquence and nobility. It is almost impossible to imagine. The United States Senate without Robert Byrd. He was not just its longest serving member he was its heart. It's so and it's historian from my first day in the Senate I sought out his guidance, and he was always generous with his time and his wisdom. I admired his tireless advocacy for his West Virginia constituents. His fierce defense of the constitution. And. The traditions of the Senate and his passion for a government that improves the lives of the people. It's not the secretary. Let's let's go back.

"But there are places where there is no substitute for a barrier. The bears we have up now in the high traffic areas are over ninety. Affective? So where we have built a barrier along the southern border. It's reduced criminal immigration by more than ninety percent. Yes. There are places out in the mountains in the middle of nowhere technologies, actually better and more cost effective. But that doesn't obviate having a wall where you need it. And that's what this battle is all about that's goes back to your original question about the five point six billion dollars is for border security, including the wall right now, they're number. I think for all border security one point three billion dollars, which is clearly inadequate that is a status quo number, and if all we have is a status quo the next year, we have the same problems we have this year, which is simply not acceptable to the president. I want to ask you President Trump trying to drum up support for the wall on Friday said it some past presidents have told him the day should have built a wall along the us Mexico border previously spokespeople for George W Bush and Bill Clinton said that that wasn't their boss that said that neither Barack Obama nor Jimmy Carter I've ever endorsed the idea of a border wall. Who exactly was he talking about my guess is this boils down to some of the semantic difficulties. We had with. Leader Schumer just yesterday. Okay. Mr. Schumer kept saying you don't have money for a while. Now, you don't have money for wall now, and we're showing pictures of what we're building on the border with the money that we received last year. It's it's a very similar style to the president wants to build in the future. It's the steal what they call a Bollard fence. It's a thirty foot high steel barrier. And our understanding is that that's not a wall in the law right now. The law actually limits are of concrete for example on the border, and we're like, that's fine. That's completely fine. So I'm not really sure you don't know what president it wasn't known. I don't know what the presence mean when they said, they weren't supporting a wall. I know that George Bush was president two thousand six when they signed the secure fence act, which is what we're using right now to build the wall board with him which residents I have no idea. You don't know ask the question that have not asked the president that question. I wanna ask you President Trump cities considering using emergency powers to fund and build the border wall. I wanna read you what you said is a congressman in two thousand fourteen after Barack Obama, then president took a series of executive actions on immigration. That you oppose. You said quote this country has governed by the rule of law and not the rule of one man. The president's excused the congress has not acted is pathetic and insulting his party had complete and total control of the White House. The Senate and the house of representatives for two solid years and completely ignored immigration reform. Does that statement not apply to President Trump as well? It. Absolutely. Plus, in fact, I think it is a couple years ago. I think that replies to his action on DACA when he's I think he actually said publicly he didn't have the right to do what he was doing. But he was doing it. Anyway, one of the things you learn when you get the government is that we give the president who's the chief executive office officer of the country, a great deal of latitude over how the government is run one of the things I've learned it. Oh, MB is that we actually can do that very effectively folks ran a story a couple of weeks ago at the beginning of the shutdown about how the coast guard was not going to get paid made it very clear that he wanted to do everything within his power legally to make sure those folks got paid. And we were able to do that we were able to move money around legally and presidents have the ability to do that. This president has the. Ability to do that as well. And other airs, and we will explore opportunities to do that. I don't think that excuses what President Obama did on on the DACA decision several years. But do you think the President Trump should use emergency powers to fund the border wall presidents have have thority to defend the nation?.
