Sean I'm tired of losing. I'm sick of losing. I'm a big football fan. It's my weakness. I know I get a lot of hate mail for it. Oh it's woke. I don't care and one of the things about football is if you lose you get fired. At the RNC though if you lose you remain. Explain this to me Sean. I don't know it seems like that's almost a fact of politics anymore. Is it the watching these debates for example. Why on earth are people who hate us and hate people who read us and follow us and hate what we believe. Why are we letting them run these debates and attack our people. It would almost be like giving the Yankees front office the ability to interview anyone who's going to go and play for the Red Sox or like letting the Redskins and I still call them the Redskins and I always will. Letting the Redskins coach like pick who's going to play for the Cowboys. It's so dumb and yet we seem to do it debate after debate and year after year and I simply don't understand it at all. Yeah and so I want to play a piece of tape here. So Ronna McRomney was asked about her involvement in Virginia and it's always deflection. It's blaming other side and Larry O 'Connor who's a total superstar. I really like Larry. He's been in the movement for quite some time. He's so calmly and beautifully asked this question was like hey why wasn't the RNC more involved. His reaction afterwards is just epic. So let's play this piece of tape here. It's always somebody else's fault. It's never the national party's fault. Play cut 155. You don't let people lie about you and let it not let it go unanswered. Let it go unanswered and our candidates have got to do this. You can walk and chew gum at the same time. You can go and say this is where I stand. The Democrats are lying and now let's talk about crime, schools, border, fentanyl, and national security. I just want to clarify one quick thing though. The RNC had no involvement in these elections in Virginia per Governor Youngkin's request. We not well we were told in the summer they didn't need us that they had all the money and they were good. So now we've learned that the Virginia GOP chair Rich Anderson says that he asked the RNC to match the Democrats with one million dollars of a late cash infusion into the state. The RNC the only excuse they have is they can't raise money but that was supposed to be an thing. honest She said well we have no money but you're not raising any money because donors don't trust you the grassroots don't trust you. Sean help me understand. Yeah you've got two jobs as a as a party leader. You raise money and you set up state -by -state infrastructure so that the party can succeed which means by the way getting out to vote and setting up get out to vote infrastructure. So your your job is to supposed to raise a truckload of money and you're supposed to set up everything so that we can match the other side match the Democrats and how they get out the vote how they do ballot chase and all that. I've seen like I don't pay attention all that much to the fundraising so I won't I won't comment on that but it's been almost four years since a completely absurd election in 2020 when the Democrats just ran circles around us in in their absentee ballot chase their mail -in chase. I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence and that in states where we really need to win like Arizona and Georgia that either the state party or the national party is doing much of anything to make sure the Dems don't run in 2024 the exact same playbook they ran against us in 2020. So I'm I'm honestly kind of befuddled I feel like I'm watching office space watching the Bob's interview the employees and thinking what would you say you do here because I can't figure it out. So moving forward here Sean let's emphasize on the NBC news thing so we're after a very disappointing night and then Lester Holt and Welker are cross -examining our candidates just I want just the most objective way you could look at it what candidate do you think separated themselves from the other and who do you think missed an opportunity at that debate? Oh I thought Hveke was awesome I love how he came right out of the gate and trashed the moderators and basically said you're a whole bunch of Russian collusion hoaxers like who do you think you are that's how you handle these moderators and and I think Newt Gingrich was the one who who provided a perfect model for this he did it in during the 2012 primary where every time he got a question in one of these debates from a total left -wing hack masquerading as a journalist he just took him to town so you know your premise is garbage you're full of crap I think you're liars and here's what I'm going to talk about instead of the uh was fantastic um it's hard for me to say who the loser was in these because they kind of feel like loser debates to me and in the first place it's like watching the kids table so um I think the whole debate thing in it in and of itself we need to have a discussion about um but but I thought Hveke and the way he handled the moderators was great and I wish every single Republican from now until forever would treat these hack propagandists the exact same way. So I totally agree and I'll just say this you know Ron DeSantis received the first question and he gave his kind of typical and by the way he's the best governor in America I want everyone to be very clear I get hate mail when I say that Ron DeSantis remains the best governor in America he's not a good presidential candidate he's running a poor campaign it's the brutal honest truth and it's hard to watch he gives this fine answer you know I'm Ron DeSantis and people can't pay for gas and bah bah bye feel your pain yeah whatever Ron how awesome you were just you it was like a t -ball you could have went right after NBC news you could have just used them as the villain and the vague kind of picked up you know the trillion dollar bill that was laying right there and he called for Rana's resignation on top of it it was Rana's resignation the RNC is a bunch of losers we have a culture of losing and NBC news you guys are the complete worst and he got the headlines honestly he got the headlines across the head you know across the board and people really appreciate it because they want a fighter so let me ask you uh kind of shifting gears here Sean Joe Manchin not running for the senate the significance of this and how should we think about a potential no labels candidacy that is bubbling up with Millard Willard Mitt Romney and Mr. Manchin yeah so I got a kick out of Manchin's press release that he put out and said you know I've accomplished what I want to do in my career and I'm very proud of what I've done and and I have hopes of doing other things buddy you're retiring and not running again because you were going to get your butt kicked because you were Joe Biden's little laugh dog when you were supposed to be representing uh West Virginia voters so I think we need to be honest about why he's not going to be a senator again and it's because no one in his own state likes him the people who know him best don't want him as their senator anymore and and that's why he's not going to be running again so you bring up Mitt Romney uh man they are they are birds of a feather in that thing Mitt Romney's only the only consistent thing he has done his entire career in politics is run he gets in once and then he does such a poor job that everyone in the state hates him so he can't run again so he just finds like a new state to run you know he was a one -term governor in Massachusetts he got smoked in the presidential so he decided to move to Utah and run for senate there and no one likes him there anymore because he's a jerk uh and so what does he have left to do the only thing that Joe Manchin has left to do which is avoid any actual real job and just stay in politics and find a bunch of left -leaning voters who pretend they're independent but you can bilk and make a living off of so that's what's happening with Joe Manchin and I can't take this no label stuff seriously at all it's just a grift for a bunch of idiots who are hated by the left and hated by the right don't want to get a real job and have no home to go to go back to by the way Federalist you guys do great work it's really amazing just 30 seconds rip on the Federalist how are

for you and we have a video to accompany it in a second will John Fetterman cost Joe Biden the election divisions among democrats over Israeli -Palestinian conflict have highlighted the fault with lines in the party John Fetterman's actions are unlikely to sway the presidential election Pennsylvania however it does show that there are fault lines in the democrat party first of all I'm not a fan of John Fetterman but the guy is a master class troll every republican could take a class in how to troll like John Fetterman is basically if reddit became a U .S. senator I don't know if you saw this video but it's just you know you have this guy that looks like cyclops walking you know in a hoodie with the Israeli flag walking did you see this video on the funniest thing I've ever seen and all these people are getting arrested honestly I respect that level of game and this his base he's trolling so Sean you know let's broaden this a little bit outside of just Fetterman doing the trolling is this which is um the fault lines the democrat party over Israel the Palestine issue I don't want to overplay this I think this is the most divided I've seen the democrats in recent memory am I right on saying that Sean I think you are and I think it explains why the institutional left why Joe Biden and the party leadership uh walk on eggshells on this issue which really shouldn't be a difficult issue um you know people shouldn't be rolling into Israel and murdering babies and raping people and filming it and bragging about it that's bad I feel like anyone who has a soul understands that's bad but unfortunately there's a significant segment of the left the far left um it hates Israel hates Jews and when they see party leadership uh like Joe Biden and anyone else uh say common sense things uh about Israel they lose their minds and that that explains everything about why the democrats are handling this as poorly as they are is it Joe Biden is terrified that he's going to lose the presidential election because he's going to lose Michigan because he's going to lose Dearborn Michigan that's that big thing explained everything it's everything that's going on it has nothing to do with principle they're just scared about what their loony left is going to do to them if they don't kowtow to Hamas yeah and it's just but also beyond that Sean there are radicalized white liberals that care about the Gaza issue as well it's not just the Muslim vote right this could impact on their college campus enthusiasm and you play that in with some Jill Stein Cornell West I mean there are serious fault lines in this forced democrat coalition oh absolutely the the hardcore uh white left uh is is every bit as anti -semitic as the uh the bread by the way in in left wing run universities who view the entire world through this oppressor oppressed colonialist victim uh perspective and so yeah your your most rabid anti -semites often on college campuses are these hardcore left -wing white radicals it's totally bizarre but if you watch the media you watch the media the only anti -semites on earth are on the right which is absurd if you have eyes and ears and a brain because it's clearly concentrated on the left final question Sean your just gut reaction Tucker Carlson vice president for Donald Trump I love it I love Tucker uh I think it'd be great it'd be great for America um he's one of the only people who who says all the things that we all think but aren't allowed to say he actually comes out and says it and uh I love him I think it'd be awesome I think we would win especially in a multi -candidate race we're gonna keep on building it out Sean thanks so much appreciate it thank you sir nobody Tucker is better in front of the camera than Tucker you're not gonna outwit him could you just imagine Tucker in a debate Tucker versus Cami Kamala Harris versus Tucker Tucker is ridiculously alert he's been harassed constantly and in an internet age as Joe Rogan famously said Tucker Carlson was built for the internet no personal scandals his laugh alone we know this at Turning Point USA you can you could fill up a room if you just announced Tucker so let's pretend Trump has to go to Fulton County and Jack Smith and he's tied up in all this court stuff wouldn't it make sense to have a vice president who could draw big crowds and draw media attention especially in a multi -candidate race everybody you want to win younger voters especially younger men Tucker Carlson you would win early 30 -somethings you would win the Rogan bros you would win the Andrew Tate people and honestly I think you'd win a lot of suburban women a lot of moms like Tucker they really do Tucker's smart he's well before I'll use it again the more he's attacked the stronger he gets they've tried to take Tucker out every possible way the government spied on him illegally Tucker doesn't care he's in a political moment that we're in doesn't that make sense I want to tell you about the Herzog Foundation we are partnering with them on some exciting stuff for years I've been talking about our nation's public schools and how they've been captured by progressive ideologues

.com that's HerzogFoundation .com Joining us now is the legend Benny Johnson Benny is best known by hosting a legend you are a legend no no no I don't just I just don't throw praise unless it's earned okay I got to tell the whole story here and we'll get through it and Benny of course hosts the Benny show he's amazing we've done some really fun stuff at Turning Point USA and continue to and so but he's best he will be best when known the history books are written for being a debate coach so here I am about to take the stage at Freedom Night our Turning Point USA event and my phone is lighting up Vivek goes after the RNC Vivek goes I say what is going on because here I kind of put in the back of my mind I was like whatever you know you and Vivek were like doing somersaults off of jet skis or something you're like we're debate prepping running through the woods or I was like all right okay whatever and then as soon as I saw Vivek go after NBC News I said Benny it's Benny tell us the story Benny okay so what do I do professionally well like this has been something that I've had a tough time a question I've had a tough time answering my entire life I do pattern recognition and energy energy right like where is the base what is our energy what are the what are the patterns of the things that we hate the very most well we we hate an RNC that doesn't listen to us we hate a Republican party that won't build the wall that won't deliver for the base that delivers election wins for the RNC it is not the RNC that wins elections it is us who gets out and votes but we also hate the corporate press and so why don't we bundle both those two things into criticism of an RNC that is siding with NBC News to host a debate and ask the questions why are these debate hosts allowed to one rig another debate against Republicans why is the RNC celebrating NBC News as a debate partner when they went with Hunter Biden's laptop disinformation Russia disinformation against President Trump kneecap President Trump's why would we allow that like how like how cucked are we and how embarrassing is it for all of us that that we have to say this is our Republican party and why doesn't Rana just resign do us all a favor and simply resign and so I all I did all I did was bring those concerns to the person who I was making a documentary with that day the vague and um you know compliments to the vague he sort of so let's absorb them and and let's show the clip here so what with it because because it really was the shot heard around the world it was one of the most viral debate moments in the history of debates because Vivek said what we were all thinking Rana has a 99 disapproval rating every base every every base member all the donors I talked to they want her gone it is it transcends economic lines state lines nobody likes her unless they're on the payroll right and yet Vivek is the only one that and then NBC News on top of it this is behind the cut one fifty four because these snooty the snooty like uh persnippity moderators to be compared to Greg Gutfeld and then it'll throw off it'll throw them off their game so bad because you'll be like you you you people are clowns to us right like our base doesn't like you and it's nothing personal it's just you've earned it right you've lied to them that's right yeah yes so why are we yep be such a broken system now I want to brag on the vague because we're going to play some more here how many times Benny how many times have you and I texted or you know said good ideas to congressmen and senators they said yeah yeah they don't listen to us credit to Vivek for also being open -minded right that's a big deal that's exactly right and also Vivek who's certainly not short of podcast bookings said why isn't Elon Musk and Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson hosting debate why isn't Charlie Kirk hosting a debate Charlie why aren't you have you been asked by the RNC to host a debate no I have been attacked by the RNC in the last couple weeks definitely not asked to host the debate but I I'm I'm thankful to even be included in that list that's that's very sweet but no what but what would like why not I mean that's in the little that's in the documentary that we put up we put up a 30 -minute documentary about that debate preparation which really was just us having a conversation right like energy absorption like like where's the base right now what do they want to hear because as much as we want to talk about the number of naval ships and Hugh Hewitt know how many ships do we got like people are really concerned about other issues and specifically inside of the party like you shouldn't get rewarded for lying to us and that's what the Republican party just said they rewarded Kristen Welker and NBC News who lied to us for three years and kneecapped President Trump who we put in office in spite of them trying to rig the 2016 election we put President Trump in office and they destroyed arguably his first term based on a lie and they have never apologized they have never said they were wrong they they then get rewarded by our own RNC and it allows me to ask the question again and again how cucked are we if we can't say you get no debates until you apologize to our base for lying to us about the Russian collusion hoax then we really don't have a party and so it was refreshing to see somebody actually say that from the stage and then to call for Rana to resign which by the way you want to talk about moving the Overton window because I you know you know me Benny I I pick fights all the time and I've been kind of like beating the drum you know why is Rana Mcromany still in there you know in our little corner here and you know we're having fun and next thing you know boom Vivek goes on stage it's like yeah why are you in charge exactly and who are you and it was I mean now it's mainstream completely mainstream here's cut 166 Benny did a documentary with Vivek before the debate here is the conversation behind the scenes of Vivek deciding he will call for Rana to resign play cut 166.
A highlight from Can America Come Together to Support Israel?
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. The Mike Gallagher Show. The people you should really blame are the eight Republicans who are Benedict Arnold's, who are traitors, who joined with the Democrats to cause total chaos with no idea what was going to come next. Those eight people didn't have a clue what they were unleashing, and they had no plan for how to put it back together. In the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike. We had a caller on hold, Holly, who agrees with Newt Gingrich that those eight Republicans led by Matt Gaetz are traitors. Seems pretty harsh to me, but listen, I will admit, now that this mess is continuing on Capitol Hill, I don't know what the resolution is going to be. And if there wasn't a plan in place to replace Kevin McCarthy with somebody, well, maybe those eight Republicans didn't think this through very well. I wish Holly would call back. And a lot of people are calling and you're hanging up because you can't hear the show on hold. We understand it. We got a technical problem today that we just discovered moments before the show began. And my deepest apologies for that. We'll give you dispensation today. You can keep your radio up while you're waiting to talk to me and then turn it down as soon as you come on the air with me. How about that? That'll be a way that you can kind of keep up with what's going on because some hold times are longer than others. But do you think Newt Gingrich is right? Do you think Matt Gaetz is a traitor? Is Matt Gaetz and the other Republicans, are they looking worse and worse with each passing day because of the failure to elect Jim Jordan yesterday? They're going to try again today we'll keep you posted. In fact, I think today it happens during a portion of our show. We'll take you to Capitol Hill live and see if they can come up with a speaker.
A highlight from Jack Wagner
"Folks, welcome to the Eric Metaxas show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit legacypminvestments .com. That's legacypminvestments .com. Ladies and gentlemen, are you ready to listen to a man of grace, sophistication, integrity, and whimsy? Well, so are we. But until such a man shows up, please welcome Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks, welcome to the program. Hey, Chris Himes, are you there? I am. I am. Where are you? Well, I'm at home, but my background green screen is a studio in the city, so I'm both clever, tricky and deceptive of you. I am in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Michigan. I used to come to Grand Rapids a lot, but I think the last few years have been so crazy. In any event, I'm here for an event tonight at Cornerstone University, which is a wonderful Christian university. I actually did not know of it, and I was shocked once I realized how big it is, how amazing it is, how they are holding the line the way a lot of Christian universities like Wheaton are not holding the line like it's it's really encouraging when you meet some good guys. So Cornerstone University here in Grand Rapids, there's a big event tonight. It's kind of a big deal of eleven hundred people. And we're talking about the future of the church from my perspective in America, the future of the church. And and I let's see tomorrow I fly to Dallas where I have an event Christ for the Nations, a big event on Saturday night. Then I fly to San Antonio, which Texas is so big that you could not walk or take a bus. You got to get on a plane to go from Dallas to San Antonio. And then so there's a wonderful pregnancy gala event, pregnancy center gala event in San Antonio. And then I'm flying back to Dallas for the Socrates in the city stuff that's going to be at the Fort Worth Club that is totally sold out. Amazing. So a lot of stuff ahead. We are doing a fun way to cut you off, but I can't to compare you to to Taylor Swift in so many ways. You're you're like in a different town every day. And, you know, it's it's you need a tour bus and a hair cross between Taylor Swift and Johnny Appleseed and a Methodist circuit writer. But but I but seriously, it's crazy. And I I was going to say right now we are doing a fundraiser for the Alliance Defending Freedom who fight in court for your religious liberties and free speech. These are American heroes. And we've been pushing this really hard and almost no one has donated anything. And I don't know if it's because you hate me. No, Eric, it's not that it's just because the war, the Taylor Swift concert tickets are really expensive. And or is it because of that? Yeah. But I want to say, listen, if you cannot afford to give to the Alliance Defending Freedom, I'm not talking to you. I'm talking to those of you who can afford to give something, which is most of you. And I want to say that there are very few places you can give that are, you know, how do I put it? There's there's no downside here that they are battling in the courts for religious liberty and freedom of speech. I mean, I don't know if you go to Metaxas talk dot com, which I believe you're biblically obliged to do that. I don't go to Metaxas talk to come. You'll see the banner at the top. It's right at the top. But you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to have on Jack Wagner. He is one of the senior counsel, one of the one of the, you know, principal figures who is fighting for our liberties at the Alliance Defending Freedom doing so. Like for next to nothing, you know, he could make a lot of money doing other stuff. But there are a lot of heroes at the Alliance Defending Freedom. I said, let's let's get one of these guys on. So we'll have him on in a couple of seconds. And he can he can get into the weeds of of some of the great stuff they're doing. It is phenomenal. Just phenomenal. Some Kristen Wagner is the head of Alliance Defending Freedom. She's amazing. She sent out an email this morning about the Jack Phillips case. He continues to have to fight in the courts. And guess what? It's the Alliance Defending Freedom that's fighting for him. So, Eric, I was just going to mention we have a Dutch pastor who, you know, was basically imprisoned. And we people don't realize what it's like in other countries live just to your faith publicly and privately and how good we have it here. But that can change. And as and people are trying to change it. You know what we are going to maybe an hour or two today will play the interview that we did yesterday with Pastor. It's actually the Danish, not Dutch Danish Pastor Torben. His story is just amazing. It's amazing what happened to him in Denmark and then in the United States, he came here looking for religious asylum because he was being persecuted. So maybe an hour or two, we can play that story. This is real, folks. This is real. We have an opportunity to do something about it. That's exciting. I want to be real clear. The fact that we still can fight is a huge thing. But then we must fight. We must, must, must do everything we can. There's a lot we can do. One of those things is giving to the Alliance Defending Freedom. That's just one thing. But I beg you folks to go to the website, our website, MetaxasTalk .com, click on the banner. There's all kinds of stuff there. I put it on Twitter today, but it's important. So before we get to Jack Wagner, everybody's talking about the fact that Kevin McCarthy was shown the door. He was the Speaker of the House, but he was shown the door and he is no longer the Speaker of the House. This is historic. And a lot of people I what I find interesting is a lot of the the right people are really angry about it. People that I kind of thought, you know, I, I I suspected that they were not exactly where I am and where a lot of us are in the country. And and so we have them fulminating. So on Twitter, I put out a tweet that it's a Seinfeld quote. Well, it's actually reference to a Seinfeld quote. And it says what I think I said on the program yesterday when we started. The swamp was very angry last night, my friends, like an old man ordering soup at a deli. And I and I had a gift or whatever they call it, a GIF of Newt Gingrich. You know, obviously very upset.
A highlight from Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review (Episode 26) 10.06.23
"Welcome to the Mike Gallagher show week in review. What a week. It has been a huge breaking news week. The ouster of Kevin McCarthy, crime running rampant in the streets of America. Again, this historic defeat for speaker of the house. Kevin McCarthy has led to tons of drama and turmoil and teeth chattering. I didn't like it. A lot of people didn't like it. Kevin McCarthy has been doing a lot of good stuff. He's been doing a pretty solid job, but Matt Gaetz led members of the GOP to unseat a speaker for the first time in American history. Well, think about what we saw today. 4%, 4 % decided they were so morally superior, so intellectually pure, so patriotically better that they would side with the Democrats. And that's what they did in order to defeat the entire Republican house caucus. 96 % of the Republicans voted for McCarthy. 4 % voted against him. From my position as a long time Republican activist, they're traitors. All eight of them should in fact be primaried. They should all be driven out of public life. What they did was to go to the other team to cause total chaos. Former house speaker Newt Gingrich was Sean Hannity last night on Fox news. There is a lot of anger and I understand the anger. I really do. I appreciate the frustration and the near rage that a lot of people are in, but I wanna give you another point of view, something to consider. This is breaking. You know, Democrats like Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi enjoyed cushy, luxurious, what they called hideaway offices in the congressional building where these offices are housed. You know what the first thing, the first official act that acting speaker Patrick McHenry did last night was kick Nancy Pelosi out of her office. Served her with an eviction notice saying we're keying the locks tomorrow morning, get out. They're also doing the same. It's being reported moments ago to Steny Hoyer. House Republican leadership, the new House Republican leadership has kicked Steny Hoyer out of his capital hideaway office. Now here's my question. Why didn't Kevin McCarthy do that? Why did it take Patrick McHenry to do that? In other words, this seems to be for me a metaphor as to what Matt Gaetz and the others are complaining about. This seems to me to be an example of the Uniparty. And the accusation of Kevin McCarthy, I don't think it's fair, I don't actually believe it, but I'm not gonna ignore what millions of people believe that Kevin McCarthy was part of the problem, part of the swamp, part of the Uniparty. Why did Kevin McCarthy allow Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer to have these nice, big, fat, cushy offices? You know why? Because he was all about reaching across the aisle, compromise, we gotta get things done, we've got a slim majority, and I understand all that. Listen, governance is hard. Legislating is very complicated. There's no easy answer to this. But to me, it is a stunning, stunning story that Patrick McHenry, Mr. Slam Down That Gavel, to try to break it into a million pieces, his first act was to kick Nancy Pelosi out of her cushy office. Isn't that something? Don't you think that's profound? Doesn't that let the Matt Gaetz supporters say, see? That could have been done months ago.
A highlight from Consequences of McCarthys Deal with Democrats
"The real danger of Obamacare is not the cost. That's not going to be the issue. It's going to be the destruction of health care because bureaucrats will make the decisions that the doctors should be making with their patients. And what happened? The bureaucrats in Albany, Dr. Fauci in Washington, the bureaucrats in government made decisions that were completely wrong that the doctors, for fear of losing their licenses under threat of termination, were forced to follow. Welcome back. Mike Lomas, Comical Financial Guys, a place where money meets politics. We still talk radio even though it's a podcast, but thanks for tuning in. And this, by the way, brought to you by our home and auto division. Give us 14 minutes, let us shop over 25 companies to save you money. And it is Medicare season. I can tell you that the Buffalo office is ramping up crazy. So if you need help turning 65, 65 plus need help with your Medicare, make sure you call us. But we, you know, throughout the week we send each other a ton of stuff. Glenn, the violence, let's start with the violence because the crime in, in these left wing hubs is to me just getting out of control. You know, one of the things Mike asked me this morning on the morning Mike's was, you know, do you think the liberals will, will get this now? Because this week alone, there's been multiple left wing nut job. You know, folks that have been stabbed. This is the New York City fatal New York City stabbing of a social justice activist, right? So, you know, this, this nut job didn't know that this guy was left wing, right wing. He just stabbed them, right? The guy was mentally ill, just stabbed them. I think it was Philadelphia. Was he just a criminal? Well, right. Well, right. Well, I think to be a criminal, you got to be mentally ill, but yeah, there are some people that are like legitimately like they're on the streets. They should be in an institution, but they're mentally ill. There's other people that are just like, Hey, I'm from Venezuela. I'm from El Salvador. I'm just going to get, I'm just going to get your crap. Although I don't think this guy stole anything. Right. He just stabbed them. Like, so yeah, I don't know what he just did. Yeah. Yeah. But, but, um, so go, sorry, go. I didn't say it was, I was saying to, uh, Marcy this morning, I'm like, you know, the sad thing is we used to say, you know, I know a lot of Venezuelans, you know, dying down here in Florida is a lot of Venezuelans, a lot of Cubans, good people, right? Yeah. Here's the difference. The, the, the, the next generation though, but you see, like I saw a video, I can find the video. I think you saw the video, right? Um, guys, 17, 18 years old. He's like, I'm from, I'm from, you know, Venezuela. I'm going to New York city. He's got gang tattoos, tattoos all over his face. You saw that, right? So 17 years old, you have to remember this kid has never experienced the benefits of the positives when Venezuela was a free country. Like he doesn't, like you talked to a 45 year old or a 50 year old Venezuelan. They're like, Oh my God, we lost our country. They lost their country when they were 20 or 30. He's fighting to survive the whole time. Yeah. Yeah. He knows breaking into a zoo to try to get the, that's right. That's what he knows. Right. That's the life he knows. So now you're taking that kid. Now you're putting him in New York city. What life does he know? What, what marketable skills does he have outside of eating out of a dumpster? Well, let me be fair. When you're, when your entire face is a tattoo, you've got very few things that you can do. Very few, very few. I'm not saying there's not things that you can't do because I'm sure there's all kinds of labor, but you're, you're basically wiping yourself out from half the workforce at that point. So here's your choice as an 18 year old El Salvadorian or Venezuelan, right? You can work in a construction job, make good money, 80, 90, $100 ,000 a year, pay 20 ,000 or more of that to the federal government. So you end up with half by time you're done. Or you can get involved in one of these new, uh, uh, organized gangs that are popping up in these major cities where they're targeting luxury homes and breaking in. They're also targeting luxury yachts and they're stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars that they fence on the black market and you can make the same $100 ,000 except there's no taxes. There's no, there's no filing of anything and you're seeing these things. You're seeing these criminal gangs organized criminal crime syndicates that are actually now moved here and are setting up in major cities across the country. Yeah. They, they actually set up the online campaigns, right? So you can see it all, you know, they'll show you how it all plays out, right? They'll loot five stores. Uh, you were, you were saying something about the yachts and the big homes. Here's what's happening folks. This is what happens, right? Now, the other, the, it's funny, I sent you this morning, Starbucks closing seven downtown San Francisco stores. So we already know that Walmart's closing in, in all those places. Target's closing and all these places, the San, the, the, uh, the Starbucks are closing, so they have nothing left to rob. Now in some of these they've got it out, they've basically got it out. San Francisco, right? So where are you going to move? The Starbucks to where the money is. The Starbucks went from sensitivity training. Remember five years ago, they had a, they had a, they had a black guy loitering in the place, harassing customers that they called the police on. It ended up being a major, it was racism. They shut down all the stores across the country. Remember? And then they, then they opened up a policy of anybody can use their bathroom, even homeless people policy. Then they had to walk that back. And now they're all close. Now they're all close. Now they're just throwing them in the towel. His question this morning, Mike was, will they ever get it? And I said, Mike, I said, I know I've used this analogy a million times, but I think it's so, so very true. If you look at the school systems that they've run and they've gone from 80, 90, a hundred percent graduation rates to 90 to 80 to 70 to 60, you would think at some point along the way that they would have been smart enough to figure it out. Now they're at 40%. And, and literally a hamster could graduate, right? I mean, if the hamster shows up in the classroom, that's a 40%, you move on. Right. So to answer the question, I don't think they're going to figure this out. I think the only way it happens truly is you have a structured bankruptcy and the social programs go away and you're going to have massive, I mean, really, truly, you're going to have hubs that are, that are Iraqi, you know, war zones and yeah, I mean, it's going to get worse. By the way, those war zones are going to get worse and worse and worse. The drug will get worse. And, and the, and the communities outside of that, if you've got a structured bankruptcy and they're not paying for the social garbage anymore and the free welfare, they'll be able to have the good police officers. They'll be able to have the good walls, right? The property values will be expensive, but the Democrats want those same crime, places, you know, subsidize housing. They want them in your neighborhood. They want them in Lancaster. They want them in Alma. That's what they want. To that point this week, they, they are now issuing vouchers. So you can, and those vouchers by the way, are not meant to say you stay right where you are in this inner city. That's already a piece of shit. You take this voucher and you give it to the landlord out in the suburbs and we'll pay your rent. Right. And now it puts a landlord in a tough position. Okay. Well, I can get guaranteed rent with these vouchers. Right. What if you don't take it? What if you don't take it? You're going to get accused of discrimination. You're going to get, you're going to get investigated by our very fair and honest attorney general in New York state. Of course not. That's right. You think about this though, Mike. So in Minnesota, we had the council woman, remember that, that was, he advocated for no police. Remember? And then she was carjacked in her driveway and violently assaulted. And she's on camera after with, you know, bloody head going, I can't believe this happened to me. You advocated for no police. Right. They're the first ones, by the way, trying to get their phone for 911. That's right. First ones, New York City officers, New York City, left wing advocate, right? Activist, uh, stabbed to death, right? Activist, left wing act to no police, no bail, bail with doing all the things at the left. When I said left wing activists, these activists, let's talk about what they support. They support no bail because that's not fair. Right. They think that criminals are, are, are, you know, mistreated. So they want them back out in the streets. Right. They want less police because police are the problem. Right. I mean, you know, I don't, do they get it? No. And then just yesterday or two days ago, you had a Democrat, a politician, carjacked at gunpoint in DC. That's right. It's insanity. In DC. In DC. You cannot, you're not safe in DC. Right. Where the, where the white house is. The Capitol. Right. Right. The Capitol. It's a crap hole. You know why? Because it was run by people like Mariel Bowser for years. Right. It was run by corrupt left wing politicians. Right. And to ask if they're totally getting rid of cashless bail in states like this, they're doubling down. There's been no conversation about that. He's not talked about that. Kathy Hochul. I mean, honest to God, talk about a narcissistic moron. I mean, she's saying, get this kid rescued. Thank God. Thank God. Hats off to the, to the state troopers and the police to put this together a great job and returning this child. Kathy Hochul, all the press stuff she does. There's not one picture of the family. It's all about her. Everything. Prescott. I promised a family. I'd get them back. Really? How could you possibly do that? Which is totally untrue, but she made this whole episode. Instead of praising the police and the good job that she made this whole thing about her. How great she was. Unbelievable. She is truly stupid. I think the guy had a rap sheet too. I think he was the guy, by the way, the guy that got stabbed in New York city, I bet Mike, he's like a red stripe. I said, we're both down in Florida. You know, that way we both win. This guy, when they find this guy and they'll find him, he'll have a rap sheet as well. He will have been out on jail multiple times. He probably has already stabbed somebody. This is probably isn't his first stabbing. Why, by the way, why, by the way, we're not outraged and getting rid of knives is beyond me. You can't defend yourself. I don't know. Where did that stabbing happen? That was Philadelphia, I believe. Was that New York city? Oh, stabbing was in Brooklyn. That's right. Something else happened in New York city. Oh, a lady got hurt with, uh, uh, uh, you know, hoodlums on motorcycles. A woman with two children got her back window smashed. And when they jumped out of her car, got out to confront the guy, he pulls a gun. She doesn't stop, backs him down and protects her kids. The problem though is, if you are living in one of these left -wing cities, you have to get out. You have to get out. This guy, let's say if he wanted to defend himself for two nights ago and took out a gun. Yeah. Yeah. Maybe now, maybe not because he's been a left -wing Democrat and he's a registered Democrat. So I'm sure, I'm sure that would go a long way. Was he gay? Yeah. Was he trans with the, what card did he hold? I don't know. He's got to have something because I think that, I think the perpetrator was black. Was he not? It's not, yes. You're saying it's not just good enough to be a Democrat anymore. You got to take it one level higher. You gotta have something. You gotta be something else. You gotta be an acrobat, you know, lesbian, you know, underwater free diver. I don't know. It's just, it's just so this preposterous. It really, stuff that they come up with. Another three here in Western New York, and three Colombian nationals this week charged with burglizing Amherst residents. See, this is the problem though. You know, you have to question this morning with Mike Hayflick. Coming to the suburb, a suburb near you. It's coming to a suburb near you. You're going to watch very quickly these left -wing folks that have voted Democrat, although I'm not sure that a little brains are going to get it, but you're going to find very quickly how we're going to go from an all loving open -armed community to whoa, whoa. And even Kathy Hochul's like, don't come, don't come here. We're full. We're full. Open arms, a statue of Liberty, something along, welcome everybody, blah, blah, blah. As Joe would say, you know, which wasn't the truth, by the way, Ellis Island, you had to go through, you know, I've been reading up and really started learning about a lot of the history of our immigration policy. Agree to learn English, sponsored by family. You had to go through, you know, testing to make sure you weren't sick. If you were sick, if you came, if you got off the boat and you exhibited open sickness, you got back on the boat and you were shipped back or, or you were quarantined. Interestingly enough, throughout the turn of the century, we had very strict quotas of countries that we allowed people to come in from. We had countries that were literally blacklisted. We were not allowing certain countries like African countries to emigrate, immigrate, I should say United States progressives, by the way, liberal progressives at the turn of the 19th century were the ones that put those policies in place. So again, you know, it's amazing how, when you look at actual and understand actual history and you see how things really flipped, you know, it's really two things, by the way, that, that changed this in a big way, right? Number one was these feet. People did not come in here and get massive amounts of welfare, right? They went right to work. There was no welfare. They agreed to learn English. They agreed to acclimate into the school systems, right? Number one, number two, we actually had a criminal justice system back then that actually put criminals in jail, right? So if you came over here and you did something stupid, you were going to jail. You were not getting out on cashless bail. Welfare wasn't waiting for you on the other side, a very different system than where we are today. And it could have impacted your entire family. Your family had to vouch for you coming over. We had a family oriented immigration policy that really stressed. So if you had family over here already and you were, let's say in Italy or you were in France or whatever, and you wanted to immigrate to the United States, you had a much higher probability of being able to get to the United States and, and, and meet, you know, get underneath that quota. But from, from, from a, a good chunk from world war, you know, about turn of the century through the great depression, we had very little immigration in this country. And it's amazing. I look at like my grandparents that came from Italy. I'm surprised they were able to get in, but it came, you know, my grandparents and then they brought over a few more family members, but most of them were still in Italy. They, they stayed over there. So just interesting if you really understand the policy and you understand history, and I wish they would teach more of this on who was responsible for what. But yeah, while they're removing all that. Yeah. Speaking of karma though, we've mentioned karma earlier and we got to talk about Kevin McCarthy and Carmageddon. I mean, I hope that the Republicans take notice that this is what happens when you cut a deal with the Democrats. Cause that's what he did, right? He cut a deal with the Democrats. Some of them are not getting it still though. Newt Gingrich I saw last night. Newt, I love you man. But he's on Fox. So he goes, I think this is a bad idea. I'm like, this guy is exactly why people like you and I McCarthy never give a goddamn penny to the Republican. And that's exactly why we don't show up for the benefits anymore. We don't show up because it's, it's, it's total. We are $33 trillion in debt with a clock, by the way, that is literally smoking. It's going so fast. You can't even see the numbers flip anymore. It's just a blur. It's just a blur.
"gingrich" Discussed on Mike Gallagher Podcast
"Mike Gallagher. Well, think about what we saw today. Four percent, four percent decided they were so morally superior, so intellectually pure, so patriotically better, that they would side with the Democrats, and that's what they did, in order to defeat the entire Republican House caucus. Ninety-six percent of the Republicans voted for McCarthy, four percent voted against him. From my position as a longtime Republican activist, they're traitors. All eight of them should, in fact, be primaried. They should all be driven out of public life. What they did was to go to the other team to cause total chaos. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was Sean Hannity last night on Fox News. There is a lot of anger, and I understand the anger, I really do. I appreciate the frustration and the near rage that a lot of people are in, but I want to give you another point of view, something to consider. This is breaking. You know, Democrats like Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi enjoyed cushy, luxurious, what they called hideaway offices in the congressional building where these offices are housed. You know what the first thing, the first official act that acting Speaker Patrick McHenry did last night, was kick Nancy Pelosi out of her office, served her with an eviction notice saying, we're keying the locks tomorrow morning, get out. They're also doing the same, it's being reported moments ago, to Steny Hoyer. House Republican leadership, the new House Republican leadership, has kicked Steny Hoyer out of his Capitol hideaway office. Now here's my question, why didn't Kevin McCarthy do that? Why did it take Patrick McHenry to do that? In other words, this seems to be, for me, a metaphor as to what Matt Gaetz and the others are complaining about. This seems to me to be an example of the Uniparty and the accusation of Kevin McCarthy, I don't think it's fair, I don't actually believe it, but I'm not going to ignore what millions of people believe, that Kevin McCarthy was part of the problem, part of the swamp, part of the Uniparty. Why didn't, why did Kevin McCarthy allow Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer to have these nice, big, fat, cushy offices, you know why? Because he was all about reaching across the aisle, compromise, we got to get things done, we've got a slim majority, and I understand all that. Listen, governance is hard, legislating is very complicated, there's no easy answer to this, but to me, it is a stunning, stunning story that Patrick McHenry, Mr. you know, slammed down that gavel to try to break it into a million pieces, his first act was to kick Nancy Pelosi out of her cushy office. Isn't that something, don't you think that's profound? Doesn't that let the Matt Gaetz supporters say, see, that could have been done months ago, that should have been done months ago. Kevin McCarthy, as the accusation goes, is not a strong speaker.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Airs His Grievances

A highlight from Who Will Be The Next House Speaker?
"Breaking news. This is a special edition of the Mike Gallagher Show. Kevin McCarthy has been ousted as Speaker of the House. The yeas are 216. The nays are 210. The resolution is adopted. The office of Speaker of the House of the United States House of Representatives is hereby declared vacant. Seemingly coming out of nowhere, history was made this week as a small group of Republicans partnered with all the Democrats in the House to end McCarthy's leadership. I would say that my conversations with the former president leave me with great confidence that I'm doing the right thing. What happens next? Here's Mike Gallagher in the Relief Factor studios. Oh, boy. Well, here we go. Chaos reigns supreme in Washington, D .C., and now the Republicans lost their Speaker of the House thanks to the efforts of eight Republicans who decided it was time to tear off the Band -Aid and make a change. Now, we've got a lot of challenging bad news to tackle with these eight Republicans who sided with all the Democrats, really, realistically, all the Democrats sided with the eight Republicans, and shame on the Democrats, but on the other hand, you're not going to count on them to get the Republicans out of the way of themselves. So this is a Republican headache, and boy, is it a massive headache. If you saw that Patrick McHenry, the acting Speaker, slam that gavel down, how that gavel didn't break is a miracle. That's got to be the sturdiest gavel in the history of all gavel manufacturing. People are livid. People are enraged. Newt Gingrich calling Matt Gaetz and the others traitors for what they did, traitors. And when you go down that path, we know what happens. We all know what the penalty is for treason. There's a lot of heat right now and a lot of confusion, especially Nancy Mace. Who saw that coming out of South Carolina? If it weren't for Kevin McCarthy, Nancy Mace doesn't have her seat in Congress, and she stabbed him in the back. So before we try to sort through the many challenges we face, let me give you some reason for some optimism. Close your eyes for just a minute and fantasize about this. I've now heard from a number of people. I know for a fact Donald Trump has been contacted about possibly him being an interim speaker. Is that a reality? I don't know. He'd be great. But actually, I want Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States. If he wants to be speaker, I want him to be president of the United States. He's still going to be running for president. That's where we need him is at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. If he wants to be speaker, then that's fine, too. Wow. Can you think of a wilder scenario than acting Speaker of the House, Donald J. Trump? Oh, my gosh. Just a thought. Just a thought. All right. Let's get into the brass tacks. Whenever there's a huge historic story like this, I don't like a ton of talking heads. I want to hear from the American people. The Ph .D. weight loss and nutrition line is open to you, 800 -655 -MIKE, 800 -655 -6453. It seems to me that there are certainly two sides to this argument. The side that supports Matt Gaetz and the seven other Republicans argues it was time to rip off the Band -Aid, McCarthy didn't fulfill certain promises he made in order to get elected in the first place, our spending is out of control, we're funding Ukraine, we're not doing things we promised to the American people, and good for them. Now, the other side of it is it's a bad idea to do this when we have so much momentum. The timing is terrible. It puts the Republican Party in disarray. It creates absolute pandemonium, and it's not a very productive thing to do. That's the other side of it. Or you could go under the third rail and do what others on air and in print are doing. Matt Gaetz is a moron, and he's a monster, and there's some ethics thing that he's hiding, and there's bodies buried, and Ralph Norman will never win again. Even though Ralph Norman voted for Kevin McCarthy, he got thrown under the bus with the rest of them by a lot of the establishment Republicans because he even entertained the thought of dumping Kevin McCarthy. None of them are ever going to win again. They're finished. We should kick them out.

We're Still Here After Many 'Government Shutdowns'
"On a plan budget that would start from zero zero -based budgeting he called he had problems from Democrats and he shut down the government a lot total of 60 days out of four years that then the great Ronald Reagan comes in Congress wants to spend money everything on but defense 1981 he shuts down the government for two days in November 1982 he shut down the government for one day September 30 to October 2 again 1982 December he shuts it down three more days 1983 shuts it down three days 1984 shuts it down two days 1984 again later shuts it down one day 1986 he shuts it down one day 1987 he shuts it down one day Here we are America. The federal government's been shut down about 80 days until that point can you imagine? Clinton George H .W. Bush shuts it down for three days 1990 in Bill Clinton shuts it down for five days in 1995 95 facing 1996 Clinton off with Newt Gingrich they shut it down for three weeks Guardians George H .W. Bush advised by Karl Rove the other lightweights never vetoed a spending bill never shut down the government and spending went through the roof you
John Zmirak Ponders "Should Congress Make Joe Biden King?"
"Welcome back. Talking to John Smirak. John, you're talking about the article you wrote at Stream dot org. I've shared it on Twitter, and it has a funny title. Should Congress make Joe Biden king and Hunter Biden the prince of Wales? But it's a civics lesson. It talks about how the founders created a magnificent form of government. That is a check on power. And at the heart of it, you were just saying is the House of Representatives must approve and originate all funding. Now, this is something that the Republicans threw away decades ago. Newt Gingrich shut down the government and it blew up politically in his face. Ever since then, Republicans have just said, OK, well, we'll pretend that we don't like X, Y and Z. But if the Democrats insist on it and it becomes down to shutting down the government, we will surrender every time. We just want you to know that we've got the white flag hanging over our party head. Let me let me ask you, because maybe you can help me understand this. Why did that blow up when when Gingrich did it? This was early on in the 90s in the right. But it was it was in the Clinton Clinton administration in the beginning of the Clinton administration. Newt Gingrich was a heroic figure. Well, here's why. How did that blow up politically? Why did that blow up? Why did that backfire? Here's how it backfired. The Democrats got a bunch of old people with nothing else to do but call their congressman and said they're going to cut off your Social Security. And hundreds and thousands of phone calls came into Congress and the Republicans folded like a cheap tent. We have to be willing to say we will shut down the government and leave it shut. We will defund the FBI if you're going to use the FBI to send men with rifles to the homes of pro -lifers. You're going to use the FBI to persecute PTA moms who complain about pornography in the school library. If you're going to use the FBI as a KGB to protect the corrupt political dynasty of the president to cover up for his son's crack deals and foreign bribes, we would rather cut it off

A highlight from Trump v. the Others
"We get it. You're busy. You don't have time to waste on the mainstream media. That's why Salem News Channel is here. We have hosts worth watching, actually discussing the topics that matter. Andrew Wilkow, the next D 'Souza, Brandon Tatum, and more. Open debate and free speech you won't find anywhere else. We're not like the other guys. We're Salem News Channel. Watch any time on any screen for free 24 -7 at snc .tv and on local now channel 525. at preggertopia .com I'm not going to say that George Strait automatically means that I'm here, but it's a good signal. Mark Davis in for Dennis. A certain Texas twang coming from George, if not from me, but a certain Texas flavor when I am here and it is always a joy to be here. Mark Davis from 660 AM, the answer where I am the happy morning host. And boy, was I happy to be here this morning. Happy being a relative term. It was demanding for everybody because I'm here in central time talking to the West Coast crew out there in Pragerland where everybody was working really late between radio and the Salem News Channel. Just fantastic coverage last night, post debate, all kinds of opinions flying thick and fast. So I'm just really enormously pleased to be here in one of my frequent fill -ins. It's always a joy to be here for Dennis. And you can follow me on Twitter or X or Guacamole or whatever they're calling that thing these days, at Mark Davis, M -A -R -K Davis. And the best way to get ahold of us, of course, is the phone lines that are used in the show every day. 1 -8 -Praeger -776, 1 -8 -Praeger -776. Again, I'm Mark Davis here in the big bustling DFW. And wherever you are, I have some things I need to know from you. You ready? And what I'm gonna do is put some of it in question form. Most of my obvious offering is to get your thoughts and ask the blanket question. What did you think of the two big things that you could see last night? One of them was the debate on a stage in Milwaukee. And the other one was seen by perhaps 10 times more people. I mean, are we at 200 million? At some point, everyone in America, if not around the world, will have seen Trump on Tucker. And we'll talk a little bit about whether it was smart for Trump to do Tucker instead of the debate. It certainly wasn't dumb, it certainly didn't hurt him. Because after all, as we've learned by now, nothing hurts him, at least not yet. And by the way, every candidate on the stage last night, every candidate on the stage last night, dreams of having a bump, having a boost like Trump will get today from another arraignment. This time under the aggressive thumb of Fannie Willis in Fulton County in Atlanta, Georgia. He will turn himself in at some point and you will then almost be able to palpably sense the fundraising boost, the poll boost. Here is the truth of the Trump poll numbers. There's something we know, but there's something numerical we don't know. Again, one eight Prager 776, one eight Prager 776. Talk about Trump's decision not to be on that debate stage. And then we'll talk about everybody that was on that debate stage. Cuz it was a fascinating night for Vivek, a so -so night for DeSantis. A really good night for Tim Scott, a surprisingly, momentarily at least interesting night for Mike Pence. Nikki Haley did great, but did she get enough Mike time? Chris Christie, that New Jersey bully boy thing, that just gets really old, really fast. And Doug Burgum and Asa Hutchinson were there as well, which is about the old, I got nothing bad to say about these guys. I've got nothing bad to say about these guys. Hutchinson was an okay governor of Arkansas, really needs to be awakened on some of the gender clarity necessities. Doug Burgum seems like a wonderful guy, and what a tough nut, keyword nut. Who plays basketball the night before a debate? Who does something that has even a remote injury risk? My colleague Mike Gallagher and I were talking, and he said, if I'm on the debate stage the following day, I'm putting myself in lockdown. I'm gonna be in bed, in some type of pneumatic bubble. Nothing will get to me, but so that I don't rip open my Achilles tendon. Which he did, so he had to crutch himself onto the stage. And I don't wanna be cynical enough to say that this strikes me as debate theater and that it was faked. I don't believe that, I don't wanna be that guy, I don't wanna be that cynical, but I will be this judgmental. How dumb is it to do something the night before a debate that can hurt you? So of course, I know driving on the highway can hurt you and da, da, da, da. So I have all kinds of hot takes on how I think everybody did. I'm gonna frame it in terms of what I expected versus how they did. And then we'll talk about what I expected from Trump on Tucker. I expected it to be stratospherically good, and it was. So we have specific Trump on Tucker observations, and we have specific debate participation observations. And it all takes place against this glorious, fascinating backdrop of late August, 2024. Here we are, we are still September, October, November. So we're still four and a half months before anybody votes for anything. Change is still possible, but how plausible is it? How many times have you heard people say, yeah, in this particular year, by this point, Newt Gingrich was in the lead? Yeah, in this particular year, Rudy Giuliani was in the lead. Well, guess what was not going on when Newt, obviously, neither gentleman ever became president or ever will, it seems, for multiple reasons. There was no Trump, nobody had a 50 point lead. It was just wide open, it was five or six or eight or 10 or 14 or 17 people all running now. Trump is the alpha dog, the king of the hill. There is nothing that has dented his support yet. I will tell you the one thing, I wouldn't even say might, I'd say the only thing that can, the only thing that can, and I'll do that here in a second. In fact, probably got to get to that first. 18 Prager 776, 18 Prager 776. And again, my name, Mark Davis, follow me on Twitter, X, whatever you want to call it. I can't say X, it's Twitter to me, I don't know, I'm an old fart, what can I say? At Mark Davis, and I'll take a look at those during the break. But the best way to get ahold of us, of course, with your thoughts, 776. 18 Prager Okay, I do have a fresh column in the Fort Worth Star Telegram, I'm proud to write for the Star Telegram and the McClatchy newspaper chain and Newsweek and Town Hall, but the thing I did an immediate, I pretty well do mean immediate, turnaround reaction column for was the Star Telegram. So if you go to star -telegram .com and look at opinions, find me, Mark Davis, there is my column that talks about how Vivek and Pence and Tim Scott helped themselves. I mean, the only people who did, but they did. But the enduring question, the enduring question is, can anybody catch Trump? Is that even possible? So if we start with the premise that they say anything is possible, not anything, okay? Asa Hutchinson, Doug Burgum, or Will Hurd winning the nomination is as close to not possible as the English language permits, okay? But let's just say that in these turbulent times, where almost everything seems volatile, it was volatility that kind of lofted Trump in 2016. There were a lot of frustrations, there he was, he seemed anti -establishment, he caught the wind of that in the sales of so many Americans. The timing was just, it was perfect for Trump. Now, eight years, next month, wow, he and Melania came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower. In a way, it seems like yesterday, in a way, it seems like 100 years ago. But anyway, everybody knows him now. And the love for him and hatred of him are both baked in so solid, so two things are true at the same time. With Trump as the nominee, you're going to get two things, guaranteed two things. The love for him and the devotion to him and the desire to flip a huge middle finger to the establishment that now pursues and persecutes him, that will be on fire with energy. The other thing that's gonna be on fire with energy, every Democrat, Biden could be actually dead and on the ticket, and Democrats will crawl on broken glass and walk through fire to deliver another loss to Trump. So that will be in furious force. So which of those forces, which of those phenomena is greater? I don't know, and neither do you. Are there risks to making Trump your nominee? There sure are. But are there risks that a whole lot of people seem totally willing to take? Yes, indeedy. So what is the one thing that might erode Trump support? And I'm not saying it will, but it's the only thing that can. I'll tell you next, and take your calls next, 1 -8 Prager 776. Mark Davison for Dennis. The Dennis Prager Show. Gold dealers are a dime a dozen. They're everywhere. What sets these companies apart, and whom can you really trust? This is Dennis Prager for AmFed Coin and Bullion, my choice for buying precious metals. When you buy precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests. So many companies use gimmicks to take advantage of inexperienced gold and silver buyers. Be cautious of brokers offering free gold and silver, or brokers that want to sell you overpriced collectible coins, claiming they appreciate more than gold and silver. What about hidden commissions and huge markups? Nick Grovitch and his team at AmFed always have your back. I trust this man, that's why I mentioned him by name. Nick's been in this industry over 42 years, and he's proud of providing transparency and fair pricing to build trusted relationships.

So, whether you are watching, or listening, or both, we appreciate it. Mark Davison for Dennis here on Debate Night. I was gonna say morning after, depending on your time zone, the day after, what do we think? I'm gonna take some calls here and sort of intermingle my specific thoughts about how each candidate did. And of course, you know what the short part is, how Trump did with Tucker? Simply superb. It was just vintage Trump for 47 minutes and it was awesome. It was just a reminder of how great he is and why everybody wants him back, or nearly everybody wants him back. I will tell you, not to be a curmudgeon about this, but I still think he should have been on the debate stage. I totally understand his logic. Why should I? They're 50 points behind me. I don't need to show up for this. I totally get it. He's right about that. It did not hurt him to not be there, but it was a missed opportunity. There are millions of people for whom the last 10 times they heard Trump talk, it was all about Jack Smith, and Fannie Willis, and Alvin Bragg, and this persecution, and that lawsuit, and this vendetta, and that witch hunt, all of which is true. But it can be fatiguing to some folks who are not a junkie for this. And this would have been an opportunity for Trump with a bunch of rivals, and a bunch of pretenders to be sure, and a bunch of people at 0 .5%, and I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. But it would have been him talking about borders. It would have been him talking about crime. It would have been him talking about climate, which by the way, he did with Tucker, but he could have done that too. Not to get greedy, but why not do the debate and then sit down with Tucker tonight? Wouldn't that have worked? So yeah, but it was a statement. I understand it was a statement. It was a positioning statement that says, I don't even need to be on that stage as they all run for who's going to be the last person left when there are two candidates left standing. That is, by the way, what last night's debate was about. It's what the entire campaign is about for everybody not named Trump. At some point in the spring, there'll be two candidates left. One of them will be named Donald Trump, and the other one will not. And everybody wants to be that other person. And forever it looked obvious that it was going to be DeSantis. It doesn't look that way so much right now. Now it could really be the vague. Will that sustain? Is this kind of a flash in the summer pan? I don't know. Your thoughts are welcome. 18 Prager 776. As I get ready to go to the phones, here's the thing. Everybody, I get asked this all the time. Is there anything that could change the calculus? Anything where Trump just doesn't have that 50 point lead anymore? Because while we're talking math, here's what's undeniably true. Trump can win the nomination, can breeze to the nomination without poaching one single supporter from anybody on that stage last night. Obviously, he could do it tomorrow. DeSantis, just to pick somebody or the vague, let's go with DeSantis for the moment. He needs to poach half of the Trump poll numbers. He's got to go get half of those people. Half of the people saying we want Trump, half of the 50 some percent, if not more, who say we want Trump, who say that now in August, have to stop saying that by the time people are really voting in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, and Nevada, etc, etc. So what is the one way that happens? And this is a half court shot, maybe a full court shot. And that is that some of the poll emotions right now, some of it, most of it is we want this guy to be president. We loved him then, we love him now, we want this guy to be president. You know, the usual earth logic that people use in expressing support for a candidate. But some of it, and it'll have to be a lot of it. And I don't know that it is. But certain x percentage of it has to be folks who may or may not require Trump to be their next president. But they are furious at what's being done to him. It is a show of support. I mean, why do you think the poll numbers will go up after he is arraigned today in Atlanta? Is it because a bunch of people will just look at issues around America and decide, oh, he is my guy? Some may, but most of the poll bursts and the fundraising bursts that happen after each continuing litany of indictments is people saying, oh, hell no. It's what I call the Jason Whitlock effect. Jason Whitlock is the wonderful broadcaster, blogger, who was on the Tucker one, I think might have been after the first indictment or the second one, I lose track. Jason Whitlock was on with Tucker when Tucker was on Fox and said, I don't even know what I think about Trump. I'm halfway with him, halfway not. I like some of what he does, some of it not. I don't know. But tonight I'm hardcore MAGA. Tucker, tonight I am hardcore MAGA, Jason Whitlock said. And it was as a statement of revulsion at what was being done to him. Now, if that's a bunch of Trump support, cuz here it is in one nutshell. By the time we get to, we go through Christmas, we go through the holidays, everybody digests their holiday meals. And then we all get rolling in January of 2024. And millions of Republicans go, whoa, okay, now it's what's always been serious. But now it's time, time with a capital T. It's not about whether we don't like Jack Smith or whether we think 2020 was rigged or whether we're just not about anything else. Other than it's about one thing, one thing, who beats Biden? Who gives us the best chance of beating Biden? And if the similar numbers of people who think so today think that that's Trump, and by the way, it may well be, then nothing will change. All these campaigns, all the DeSantis's, all the Viv Hanks, all the everybody's, I don't wanna say it'll be for naught, but it will not bear fruit. It will not bear fruit. If, however, and it's funny because right now we got the sort of the fresh angst, the renewed emotion and determination of what will happen after Trump is dragged before yet another tribunal for yet another non -crime. And we can talk about this some today if you want. There's really only one thing out of every single one of these stupid persecution prosecutions, all these indictments, all these things. Really, they only got him on one thing. There's one thing that he just really should have done differently. And that's the handling of those stupid documents. Give back the stupid documents. If you do that, then that's not even a problem. But all this election related stuff is insane. He thinks he got screwed. And guess what? So do I. Guess what? So do most of you. We don't get to believe that. And if we're him, we don't get to act on that and make phone calls and secure meeting space and tweet to somebody to watch a TV show, all of which has been criminalized by these lunatic prosecutors. But in January of 2024, it's not gonna be about that anymore. No matter how we feel about that. No matter how we feel and no matter how resentful we are of that and how much we wanna stick with him. And I mean, in that regard, if millions of people say, God bless you, sir, God bless you, we love your presidency. We want those policies back, but the damage seems to have been done.
"gingrich" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"This is super important. We're here with Speaker Gingrich. So here I am, Mr. Speaker, watching MSNBC and it's 9 p.m. and it's 10 p.m. and it's 11 p.m. And my wife and we're on the West Coast, so we have a little bit of a time advantage. And so my wife says, why are they doing this at night? She's like, this is not even good for ratings. And I said, there's something more to the story here. And Mr. Speaker, what you're building out is that somebody from D.C. called Fulton County and said, get it done. So just finish that thought, Mr. Speaker. Well, I think what people have to understand is none of this stuff is happening by accident. You've had a consistent, steady manipulation of the law at every level in order to tie it into the news media. So they were getting beaten up on Friday badly because the appointment of Weiss as a special counsel was so stupid, so indefensible that even places like The You know, I don't know that I can defend this. And so they needed a new story. And their new story was going to be Fulton County. But remember this. They release the charges before the jury votes. Now, that should tell everybody how totally rigged this is. And the charges are absurd. It's 44 pages of baloney. I mean, a Fulton County district attorney is making allegations about other states outside her jurisdiction. It makes no sense at all. But nothing about this makes sense. I mean, one of one of Jack Smith's major charges in D.C. is an 1870 Ku Klux Klan law. Now, I mean, do you realize how nuts you have to be to charge a former president of the United States under an 1870 law designed to break the Ku Klux Klan in South Carolina? And this stuff goes on all the time. And there is no law. I keep when I'm on these shows with lawyers, I keep saying to them, why do you pretend we're dealing with the law? We're dealing with power. And those who have power are willing to use it ruthlessly and willing to break every rule if that will destroy Trump and if it will help them protect their own. You know, I got in this debate recently. It was a spirited conversation with a former DOJ guy. He spent his whole life admirably practicing law, Mr. Speaker. And he said, no, no, no. The rule of law will prevail, he said. And I said, respectfully, that country doesn't exist anymore. It used to. You had a great career and you swore an oath to a constitution. But Mr. Speaker, I find this with some of the people that go on cable TV and they say, oh, well, you know, here's the strengths of the indictment and the weakness. I said, it's all it's all a fraud. You're giving it too much legitimacy. Mr. Speaker, I'm actually I'm I'm writing a book right now on the four indictments, because when you take them together and then you put on the other side, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Joe Biden and Hunter Biden, you realize how deeply corrupt this country has become and how they're basically prepared to destroy the law in order to destroy Donald Trump. I mean, that's what it comes down to. Yes. They are willing to the constitution tradition, the tradition of the Constitution. They're willing to throw out everything post 1787 and 1791 to destroy a single presidential candidate. Right. And we have and we do have one thing that's absolutely vital. We still have an election. I've been talking with various people. I believe this will be the highest turnout election in American history. And I think that what they're doing is alienating the entire middle and that Donald Trump will be dramatically stronger than he was in either 16 or 20, because there are a lot of people who may not be for Trump, but they're for the Constitution. They're for the rule of law. No, I think that is that's the only argument, because, you know, I hear from moderate Republicans, I hate Trump, I hate Trump, but framed of do you think he's being treated poorly? Oh, yes. Anybody on the center right, anybody in the middle, they can acknowledge that this is a you could use whatever phrase you want, Rubicon, a precedent that we never said. I do want to ask you, Mr. Speaker, you are a master historian in American history. Have we ever seen the government use the law against a political dissident in so many different places, different jurisdictions, in lockstep harmony with what we're living through right now? We ever seen anything close to this? Yeah, there was a very brief period in the 1790s when the Federalist passed the Alien and Sedition Acts and were trying to lock up Jefferson supporters. It collapsed totally. People repudiated it. It was part of what destroyed the Federalist Party. About a year and a half, two year period there. This was, remember, there's a French Revolution going on. There are all sorts of things happening. And then at the end of World War One, the Wilson administration went crazy. And you had what was called the Red Scare, and they locked up people. They did put former socialist candidate for president in jail for what he had said, because he was anti-war, and they locked him up. That's the only other time I can think of where you've had this kind of effort. And that collapsed. And by the way, in both of those cases, the lesson the American people took was that they would not tolerate the rule of law being broken by politicians in their political fights. And in both cases, the lawbreakers were severely punished electorally. In 1800, Jefferson becomes president, defeating Adams who had passed the Alien and Sedition Act. And in 1920, the Republicans win a gigantic landslide, repudiating Wilson's approach. So Mr. Speaker, this is the debate then on the right. And I'll tell you where I land, which is, which is, is it time to start indicting them? I say yes. I say that we need to start to make some of these Democrats be investigated. However, you're also saying, wait, hold on, we have an election, which is the ultimate referendum on this. And I'm not even suggesting we should push the boundaries of the interpretation of the law. But Mr. Speaker, I got to be honest, it bothers me at a fundamental level, when I watch MSNBC, and they're gleeful, they're joyful, when they see these indictments, they feel as if they are the untouchable. So how should we think about that? Well, first of all, I think Speaker McCarthy is exactly right. We need to expand into an impeachment inquiry. And I'll explain why. An impeachment inquiry gives the ability to ask a lot more questions of a lot more people and issue a lot more subpoenas. I think phase one of this, this is one of the lessons of what happened to Nixon and what did not happen, for example, with either Trump or with Bill Clinton. I mean, you can impeach in the House if you have a majority, but it doesn't go anywhere in the Senate. And in both cases, they were in a sense vindicated because the Senate wouldn't convict them. I think that what you want to do first and what happened to Nixon, it took about a year and a half, but gradually you want to draw all this out. That's why I'm absolutely adamant that the Republicans in the House have to issue subpoenas for all the financial records of the Clinton Foundation, which will begin to move us in the right direction. Frankly, they should issue subpoenas for the 51 intelligence officials who signed a totally false letter about Hunter Biden's laptop. I mean, I think you're right, but I think our interests should be calmly and methodically to apply the law. No, and I appreciate that because I'm not a calm and methodical guy because I'm sick of seeing 81 year old. I'm just being honest. And you need all parts of a party, right? You need the activist energy. And so but then let's focus on the election, which, Mr. Speaker, I do believe that this election is one of the it's one of the bigger than candidate elections we've ever seen. We don't see that ever. If I were to 2020 was a mess. One of the brilliant kind of, let's just say, designs that the Democrats did is they turned it into almost an election of a referendum, a vote of no confidence, if you will. Right. Bigger than Trump. Are you tired? It's almost are you exhausted? Vote for Biden. Are you exhausted? Vote for Biden. I don't think they're going to be able to pull that off. Now, as far as the mail in ballots, I do see Republicans, including our advocacy organization, turning point action, getting involved in early voting. And I think that is going to increase our chances and actually embracing voting month. We also have no labels that might be on the ballot and Cornel West, which could make things unpredictable and very interesting. But Mr. Speaker, you think that this will be the most turnout we've ever seen? Traditionally, the kind of prevailing orthodoxy is that would help Democrats. Why do you think would actually help Donald Trump? Well, it helps Trump because starting in 2016, he switched the Roosevelt coalition. If you're a high school graduate, you're probably for Trump. If you're an Ivy League, you know, Ph.D., you're probably for Biden. That is an exact reversal of a half century of American politics. And every evidence we have is that Trump is getting stronger. And the more the more they persecute him, you know, they're turning him from a political figure into a national historic figure. I mean, he's much more like Alexander Solzhenitsyn or Nelson Mandela. He's a political leader being persecuted by the establishment. That changes everything. Because what I say to Republicans who don't like Trump is simple. You're going to have a choice. You can vote to sustain the corruption or you can vote to break the corruption. There's no third choice. Now, if you're willing to give up America and have it become a totally corrupt third world banana republic vote for Biden, or if you really believe that America's future is at stake, then whether you like Trump or not, he is the only alternative to the corruption. And I think that's what this is going to come down to. I think that's so smart. I'm going to tell President Trump he has to write the MAGA archipelago. So that's a great line. That is a great line. Thank you. You feel free to use it. So you said something also fascinating, Mr. Speaker. You said that if even if Trump is actually serving prison time, it should not matter. This is another objection I get from some Republican donor types who I think really mean well. I want to say they don't necessarily have the spine I wish they would have, but they want to see America saved. They're not trying to actively destroy the country, but they're terrified, Mr. Speaker. They say he's going to be in jail. We must seek other options. How should we think about that? Well, first of all, there aren't other options. He's going to be the nominee by March 6th, right after the California primary. And that's just a fact. Second, the country will be in a rage. My prediction is if they forget jail, if they actually get him in a court, you're going to have 15 or 20 million surrogates who volunteer to be local trumps to go campaign for him because he can't campaign. I mean, these these people have created a nightmare for themselves. They have invented a figure bigger than Donald Trump, and that's what Donald Trump has grown into. He didn't do it. They did it. And he's now, I think, one of the great historic figures in American life. That's for certain. And I just want to reiterate, you're right. They are going to create a rage and a nightmare. They're going to do everything they can to try to make MAGA seem like domestic violent extremists. This is part of their playbook. That's right. You have you can't take debate. You have to peacefully advocate. But I pray you're right, Mr. Speaker, if this country still has the guts, I think it does. If this country still has the gusto that I think it does, if this country still has the decency that I think it does. I refuse. Yeah, please finish my. No, a lot of people, starting with the British Empire, Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia have all thought that they would bury us and we haven't been buried. And we now have a group of corrupt left wingers who think they can lie to us, manipulate us, distort us, and that will somehow roll over and let them dominate. They're in for an enormous shock. Boy, I pray you're right. So, Mr. Speaker, I also believe this will be the most technical election in American history, where it matters. The boring stuff matters more than ever before. Early voting, voter registration. You have been a leader on this, speaking out. Please elaborate for our audience. Look, the times have changed and the Republican Party has to change with it, and the consultant class has to change. If you have, as we did in Pennsylvania, 60% of the vote cast before October 1, it makes no sense to hoard all your money for advertising in October, because you already lost a chance to affect 60% of the people. Glenn Youngkin did a great job of turnout, and by the way, one of the great experiments this fall in Virginia. Glenn Youngkin's focused on trying to win Senate and House seats in the Virginia legislature, and he's doing all the right things. Early voting, canvassing people, getting them to turn out. And I just got a great briefing from the Republican National Committee on their Bank the Vote project. We are learning, we are adjusting in a way, in a funny way, the elections of 2020 and 2022 may have been a wake up call, and we may be a dramatically better and more effective party when we go into 2024. You know, I'm not a country music fan, but there is a country music song that says, thank God for unanswered prayers. I think it's Garth Brooks, which is, he was actually talking about a high school sweetheart that he didn't get a chance to marry, and then he met her 15 years later at his high school reunion. And in some ways, maybe we have to say thank God for the unanswered prayer that we didn't have a red wave in the midterms, Mr. Speaker. I think that's right. That would have told us we're okay. What it did is it was like cold water. We woke up and said, okay, we have to roll our sleeves up. And then frankly, the Democrats, by being so ruthless, so illegal, so obvious, and frankly, increasingly sloppy, have now taught the country lessons that the country didn't want to learn, didn't want to believe was true. And now you have no choice but to face it. And I think this will be a remarkable turning point. And look, I have enormous faith in the American people. We have a national conversation. We talk to each other at every level. And ultimately, over the last 250 years, we have been pretty darn good at learning and coming back. And, you know, Clifton and I are doing a new series called Journey to America, where we're interviewing first generation immigrants and why they came here. Henry Kissinger is one of them. And what they've done is legal immigrants to improve America. They all come here because this is an amazing country. They don't all rush off to Russia, or China, or Venezuela, or Cuba. They come here. And I think that amazing country will once again renew itself, revitalize itself, and purge itself of those who are corrupt and destructive. Final question then, Mr. Speaker, what remains your biggest concern then, the biggest impediment for the right for victory ahead of November of 2024? Something we can isolate, focus on and fix? Learn to focus on attracting every American of every background, Democrat, Republican, independent, black, white, yellow, brown, I don't care. Every American who shares our common commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law, and get all of them together as a huge, huge popular voting army, and not get off on Republican sectarian politics of are you really pure enough or why weren't you here 12 years ago?

"Well, can you imagine, you know, Hannity conned me into coming out and sitting in the truck with him for two hours, which is, you know, it was ridiculous. But anyhow, because we're trying to figure out what the hell, you know, what's going on. And so I'm out there with him and it suddenly hit me. She'd already released the charges that the jury was going to vote on before the jury voted on them. So if you had any doubt about how totally rigged this was, you knew that this is this is entirely a left wing Democratic district attorney who has manipulated the grand jury. As you know, there's the old saying that a grand jury can indict a ham sandwich if that's what the prosecutor wants. Well, in her case, they were so clumsy. And this followed how clumsy they were with Weiss on Friday. So on Monday, they're equally clumsy. There are no laws. There's just our team and their team, and only one is going to win.

"Mr. Speaker, can you just elaborate on what you were saying? Joe Biden speaks in Philadelphia, flanked by two Marines. Are we living through an intentional provocation campaign? Yes. I think there's no question that the Democrats, Biden and the rest of them, are doing everything they can to go to us and to push us. And there's a smugness. And I think it starts with Barack Obama. I was really influenced by Andy McCarthy's book, Ball of Collusion, which he wrote back in 2019, where he ties in very directly what Obama did to corrupt the intelligence community, the FBI, the Justice Department. Hillary Clinton took advantage of that. And one of the things I'm urging the House Republicans to do is to subpoena all of the records of the Clinton Foundation, which involves probably 30 or 40 times more money than the Bidens. I mean, the Clintons thought big. When they stole, they stole a lot. And so here's poor Joe Biden from Delaware, and he's hanging out at the beach thinking to himself, you know, I mean, if the Justice Department is going to protect me anyway, and if Hillary is stealing on a grand scale, why not me? And so he says to his poor, drug addicted son, you know, you have a real future. You could be a bag man. They probably watched reruns of The Sopranos, thought to themselves, we could do this. And no reasonable person can argue that money came from Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Russia, Romania, and China, because Hunter Biden was really smart. And he himself said and wrote that he was a drug addict for a large part of this period. If his name had been Hunter Smith, he wouldn't have gotten to dine. And it's clear what was happening. His dad was not just taking care of him. His dad was taking care of the whole family. Remember, we already have at least one transaction in which money comes in about three and a half million from the widow of the mayor of Moscow. And it gets divided up among the family. I mean, it's sort of like, you know, Joe's taking care of everybody. So his daughter-in-law gets 35 grand, somebody else gets an amount, somebody else, I think they had like nine or 10 people, they're all eating off the trough. And then we're supposed to be told, oh, there's not anything really wrong going on. I mean, it's delusional. Meanwhile, you turn around, and there happened to be four indictments. And by the way, I think the Atlanta indictment is the most egregious, the most absurd. I mean, the idea that Rudy Giuliani, who as a young deputy U.S. attorney, and then as a young district attorney in New York City for the federal government, he used the RICO Act. He understood the RICO Act. He helped write the RICO Act. The idea that this thing, which was specifically designed for the mafia and for drug dealers, is now being used to go after the former mayor of New York.

"There was a report on the fact that the Democratic nominee in Georgia for governor said 30 times that Kemp didn't win election. Now, Stacey Abrams hasn't been indicted, but 30 different occasions she said he didn't win the election. Well, why is it a crime if Trump thought he didn't lose, but it's not a crime if Stacey Abrams thinks she didn't lose? I mean, this is the kind of totally dishonest system, which is going to drive people nuts. And it's really dangerous for the country. It is driving people nuts. And I'm afraid, Mr. Speaker, if we as the figures in the media, the people that have audiences aren't clear about the proper course of action, that this is going to get wildly out of control in a way that people will act. You know, I don't want them to act violently. I don't. I'm trying to preach peace as much as possible. But Mr. Speaker, you know history. It's the whole purpose of Biden's speech in Philadelphia with the Marines standing there and the lighting that resembled the Empire Strikes Back was to provoke conservatives into doing the kind of things that would justify applying martial law.

"Lincoln went to Gettysburg and gave his Gettysburg address at the first national military cemetery where our largest battle had been fought with about one hundred thousand men on each side to sort it out. Things don't just sort themselves out because, you know, this is not a PTA meeting. This is not for power in the most complex and biggest economy on the planet. Huge amounts of money, seven trillion dollars a year currently being spent by the federal government, seven trillion dollars a year. Interest on the debt beginning to rival a trillion dollars a year just to pay interest. We're fighting over real power. And the left came to understand, you know, the left came who was outside the game, an opponent who wasn't committed to playing along and an opponent who potentially could wreck their entire corrupt system. And that's why starting in 2015, Donald Trump just drove them crazy and they have gotten sicker ever since. So this generations of bitterness, I feel that, Mr. Speaker, and our audience does, too, where they are creating they're almost creating the prerequisite for the American right to seek revenge against the people that are doing this. I mean, I'll just use one person, for example, Rose Rook, an alternate elector in Michigan. She's 81 years old, Mr. Speaker. She's a patriot. She's one of the sweetest people you could meet. She signed this piece of paper. And now Dana Nestle, the Michigan attorney general, is not just trying to bankrupt her, put her in jail for the rest of her life because she signed a piece of paper. And so. It's crazy. It is very crazy. Yeah. And what makes it what makes it crazier is they do everything they can to protect Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Hunter Biden. So you find yourself almost like a movie that has two frames. One frame is destroy the conservatives and the other frame is protect the corrupt liberals. And they're both going on. I tell people it's like we're riding two roller coasters. You know, there's the get Trump roller coaster and there's the protect the corrupt left roller coaster and we'll find ourselves on both. Yeah, there's a phrase anarcho tyranny. It doesn't totally apply to this, but it's similar where it's contradicting realities that are colliding, where they will cover up all the crimes of one political party and they will seek out and concoct crimes of a different political party. So, Mr. Speaker, some people running for the system. Do you still trust the American legal system? I like Mike Pence a lot. I've known Mike for many, many years. I think that's a delusional statement. I mean, I don't see how you can look. And I'd say this to Mike if he was here. I don't see how you could look at what's going on with Hunter Biden, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden at the degree to which Barack Obama's department. And I don't see how you could look at these four indictments of Donald Trump and the indictments of all these innocent citizens who did, I want to repeat, who did exactly what Al Gore's electors did. This is nothing new. There's nothing illegitimate.

"Joining us now is speaker Newt Gingrich. Mr. Speaker, thank you for taking the time to join us. Our audience loves hearing from you. Mr. Speaker, I want to pick up right where you said something on the Sean Hannity program where you said that we are entering generations of bitterness. What did you mean by that, Mr. Speaker? Well, we have crossed the threshold where left wingers aren't just going after President Trump. As you know, in the Fulton County case, they've indicted 18 other people, many of them just innocent local citizens. Across the country, there's an attack on conservative justices of the Supreme Court. That's a coordinated project. There are efforts to go after people who are totally decent citizens, who became alternative electors, something which, when Al Gore's people did it in Florida in 2000, nobody thought it was inappropriate. It was exactly part of the American system. And yet here you have an innocent local person who, out of good government instincts, agreed to be an alternative elector, and suddenly they're at risk of being bankrupted. Everywhere you turn, the left is using the law as a weapon to try to destroy its opposition and to try to impose itself on the American people. And while it's doing it, it is protecting the corruption of Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, in ways that are astonishing. So I look at all this, and this is the beginning. And Henninger just wrote this this morning in the Wall Street Journal, that once these things start, you know, if a left wing district attorney can file a suit for no good reason in Fulton County, what's to stop a conservative district attorney in Wyoming from filing a suit against Liz Cheney for having violated the law with the January 6 committee? And then you're down this road of tremendously vicious, bitter destruction of people by using the law as a weapon. I think this is the most serious, and I said this on Hannity, this is the most serious drift towards a constitutional crisis since the 1850s, which led to the Civil War. No one should underestimate how deep and how serious this crisis is. To hear you say that, Mr. Speaker, makes me pause because you're you're a teacher of history. You know, you are one of the most accomplished leaders in American politics over the last couple generations. But Mr. Speaker, sometimes I hear from people and they say, well, this is going to sort itself out, that there is a belief in kind of the inevitable landing of the plane, that cooler heads will prevail. I hear this from some people in the donor class. I'm sure you hear it, too, Mr. Speaker. I'm not as bullish on that. I don't believe this. There's a guarantee that this is going to sort itself out. Is there? Well, look, as a historian, I've written novels about Washington and the Revolutionary War. I've written novels about the Civil War. And my answer is, yeah, it may sort itself out. Washington took twenty five hundred men across the Delaware on Christmas night to help sort out the American Revolution.

Newt Gingrich: 'A New Kind of Campaigning' Displayed by Ronald Reagan
"Lincoln's farewell address in January 1989, he says very clearly, these great victories weren't mine. These great victories were yours. It was your voice, your calling, your involvement, you the American people. And so we tried to return to model, that big ideas in the Contract with America, that were all 70 % or more in popularity, willingness to fight over the ideas. People forget, you know, this wasn't a picnic. closed We the federal government twice, once for 26 days. We were in a knockdown, some drag out brawl. And I always laugh at the media that says all this really hurt the Republicans. We became the first re -elected majority since 1928, after we closed the government. And the reason was because people thought we were being principled, and people thought that we were serious. We weren't normal politicians. In many ways the strength that Trump brought, in the sense that he wasn't just a regular politician. And I think that my goal is to get Republicans to understand that the consultant class doesn't understand the American people, doesn't respect them, and doesn't study issues, and they make a living out of running junk negative commercials that weaken the whole country. What you need is a much more Reagan -style popular appeal, which can be very tough with your opponent, by the way. Reagan beat the tar out of Jimmy Carter, but it was positive, it wasn't negative.

"As a playbook, because March of the Majority lays out how we negotiated with Bill Clinton and aroused public opinion, so that we got welfare reform, the largest single conservative reform in our lifetime. We have the largest capital gains tax cut in history, launching an entire extraordinary period of entrepreneurial growth. We cut regulations dramatically, helping small businesses, and we balanced the federal budget for four consecutive years for the only time in your lifetime. So there are a lot of lessons, we didn't do this because we were lucky, we did it because we worked very hard. We learned over 16 a year period, from 1978 to 1994, what worked and what didn't work. And in March, the majority, I'm giving people a chance to learn, in a free society, The what principles are the that work, how do you put together a majority, and then how do you use that majority to get the policy changes you want. That's why I think March the majority is very relevant for today, it's a history book. And do you get the sense that the Republicans in the House, McCarthy and others, are following the game plan pretty much? Well, I certainly think in the negotiations with Biden on debt the ceiling, there's no question that McCarthy outmaneuvered Biden dramatically. Biden thought he was going to get a debt ceiling with no cuts, no reforms. And it turned out that only only one out of every four Americans favored that. One of the projects I work on is called the America's New Majority the next day. and people can see it at americasnewmajorityproject .com. It was clear that only one out of every four Americans favored Biden's new majority.

"gingrich" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"You know, it is. I mean, one of the difficulties when you have a kind of chaotic Republican Party like McCarthy does is it's hard to get people to breathe and establishment wing that wants you to government responsibly. You have a radical ring that wants to impeach Joe Biden and so Republicans this election really didn't agree on a clear set of legislative goals the way that let's say Newt Gingrich did in the 1994 contract with America. That was in order to focus attention on Biden and the problems with inflation and crime. And it looks like that's worked to a very narrow extent of Republicans do wind up winning the house, but the problem is it leaves a vacuum for anybody to rush in and push their issue. And so one of the things that we're going to be contending with that Republicans are going to be contending with is there's an element that wants to engineer another debt ceiling showdown in order to cut Medicare and social security. I'm sure you guys remember 11 years ago after Republicans won the House, tried to do that same thing. We came to the brink of default. And U.S. government credit wound up being written down. So a lot of concern among both Republicans and Democrats or at least the more responsible ones about what exactly McCarthy led house would look like, what they'd be able to engineer and what kind of problems that might cost for the global economy. You point out in your piece here that, boy, it's tough to be a Republican Speaker of the House. The last two, John Boehner and Paul Ryan, they were effectively hounded out of the position and out of politics in general by the right wing of their caucus. I mean, McCarthy has to be sensitive to that cognizant of that. You know, absolutely. I mean, the lifespan of a Republican House speaker, it's sort of like being the drummer for spinal tap. It's not going to be wrong for very long. Nice. And you know, I argue the piece, but cardi actually has a tougher job than John Boehner or Paul Ryan, the last two Republican speakers who are both hounded out of the job by the right wings. A because the right wing is just more radical today. There's going to be a narrow majority, but the other reason is that the big influential voice on the outside whose dictating a lot of behavior Donald Trump wasn't on the scene for John Boehner, John Boehner couldn't hold on to his job and it was Donald Trump wasn't even weighing in. Well, he's going to be now, you know, everybody's expecting a presidential announcement from Trump in the next couple of days or in the next weeks. And he's somebody who likes to weigh in and criticize people. Kevin McCarthy in particular, and that's one more headache that McCarthy is going to have to grapple with as he tries to cobble together this narrow majority and keep his Republican caucus from revolting.

"Trump says Tuesday's midterm elections were somewhat disappointing. Lisa Taylor has more. In a post on his truth social website, Trump said, while the elections were disappointing in certain ways from his standpoint, it was a very big victory. His comments come after an expected red wave failed to materialize in an earlier post Trump called it a great evening for Republicans, while adding the news media and Democrats were working together to play it down. Several candidates endorsed by Trump lost Senate and governor races, including Doctor Oz in Pennsylvania's Senate race. However, Trump backed candidate JD Vance won a key Senate race in Ohio. I only said Taylor. President Biden says he hopes Russian president Putin will be more open to negotiating the release of WNBA star Brittany griner now that the midterm elections are wrapped up. My guess is my hope is that now that the election is over, that mister Putin will be able to discuss with us and be willing to talk more seriously about prisoner exchange. That is my intention. He made the comments at a press conference Wednesday saying he's also in constant communication with grinder's wife. Griner is being moved to a Russian penal colony. That's where she's set to serve the rest of a 9 year drug smuggling sentence that was upheld late last month. A Virginia judge is ordering Newt Gingrich to testify in Georgia's 2020 election probe on Wednesday, the judge rejected arguments from the former U.S. House speaker that his testimony would be moot since he already agreed to testify in the January 6th investigation. Now gingrich's lawyers are expected to appeal the judge's decision, but if the appeal is overturned, gingrich will have to testify

As he will talk to voters about why they should vote Republican in the upcoming midterm elections. Helping to animate this forest, none other than Emily Wilkins with Newt Gingrich today. Lost in the corridors of power on Capitol Hill. Emily, it's a good thing you were there. I heard the recording they were looking for the elevator and you were just in the right place at the right time. Welcome back, by the way. Bloomberg government's Emily Wilkins. Tell me about the commitment to America. This is sort of the agenda for what he foresees as his future Congress here. Yeah, so, you know, Newt Gingrich had the contract with America. Kevin McCarthy now has the commitment to America. And basically what it is is it's sort of a top line document. It's a messaging document really right now. That's kind of identifying the areas that Republicans are planning to legislate in if they win the majority in November, which Joe is likely to have been right now just from any election forecaster is really predicting that. So this is going to be something that they're going to roll out. I asked former speaker gingrich today whether he thought that it was a good idea for Democrats sorry for Republicans rather to be messaging on policy or rather a kind of making themselves showing the opposite of the Biden administration. Claims there was detail in there. Yeah. He does. He does talk about the detail. And one of the things I heard from members was saying, look, we do have a lot more details, but we don't want to bog down our message with all these specific bills. We have the bills. We will roll them out and do time right now. We need to keep our message to what the American people want to keep. Okay, so the American people here busy folks, they don't want to get too bogged down in the weeds quite yet.

"Ride. Now, mister president, this is the first episode of June, so listeners have sent in questions. There are some awesome questions this month. We are going to judge that. How about that? How about that? How about I'll judge. Okay. We are going to go with our Patreon president from perfect ten. Alex's iPhone for our first question coming on Facebook. Doctor mister president reverend shaman esquire, sir. The rumors. I'm curious, I'm actually curious. And I know that president iPhone will listen and I ask this with respect. Because I respect his Patreon leadership, why isn't he asking questions on truth shasha? Because I can't check true social because I haven't been accepted yet, so I can't even look at anything. Oh, okay. Well, maybe the next live episode he can tell us about our excuse than that. We know that you're very weak on truth session. But we'll say, we'll see. Rumors are swirling that the Pope is considering retirement. Any recommendations on a strong manga pontiff and any chance of a powerful combined church and state leadership directly by still our president, thank you, sir. Well, yes, and that's a great question. The first part, I already have, I've sent to the vasectomy in Rome. I have sent two nominees. Cpac had Matt schlapp, okay, so I'd love to see a Pope schlapp. And then after that, we also are talking about possibly sending one of our great strong Catholics, Newt Gingrich. Pope gingrich. Gingrich. And obviously newt, you know, who once divorced his wife when she was in a hospital with cancer. I don't think he'd have any trouble getting rid of his current life to become Pope. And I think match slap. It gives off big gay energy, even though he's married, to a decent looking, you know, obviously a very proud manga Christian, which means, you know, totally divorced from any idea of Christianity. But he gives off kind of that big gay energy match schlapp. So I think he wouldn't have a problem giving up his wife either to become a strong mega Pope. And then what was the other question? Like the part what was the other part? Just who do you think, who would you want to be Pope? Oh, I thought you said you do it. Would you do it? Oh, would I be okay? Well, I guess. Well, if I became Pope, I wish I could get divorced from the very quickly. And then I would immediately become Pope and say, pups can get married. And then I would marry Lauren boebert. And during Sunday mass, when I'm in the big fancy hat, doing strong mass on TV, I would have sex with boebert on the altar. And say, this is the strongest poping. Pussy. That would be the that would be the Sherman. Be better than anything, Joe though, steam's ever done. That was the president. Michael Craig has two questions here..

"The House. Newt Gingrich is with us. Let me talk about the political Side of this earlier on the program we had on Nigel Farraj and CL Bryant and 90. I like Nigel a lot and he's a fighter. You know, Ever since Brexit passed across the pond and took him 4.5 years, toe finally get it implemented and get that accomplished and over the finish line and And he's doing this tour about, you know, America's comeback tour, and he's saying, Okay, stop feeling sorry for yourself, Pick yourself up, stopping and angry and demoralized. Dust yourself off. Battle for Liberty and freedom never ends and freedoms but one generation away from extinction, and I quoted that to him, and the reality is you have been able there's three waves of conservatism in the modern era. And that's Reagan. You and Donald Trump. And the reality is they could be 1/4 wave or Or re engagement of the third wave, whichever way you want to describe it, but it's based on an agenda. That's gotta be the Make America first. Make America Great America first agenda. I think it's simple. I don't think it's complicated. Look, I'm actually an optimist. If you could buy an administration doesn't cripple the United States internationally. We will win a huge election in 22. We will win in 24. Because these people are so far to the left there alienating so many Americans Okay to saw survey this morning 72% of African Americans. Favor school choice. Now that choses the entire Democratic Party coalition is starting to break up on. I think that's what we're up against is that we need to get through the next year and then the next two years after that comes the foreign policy. By frankly trying to find ways to limit the ability of the Bible by administration to cause trouble and to weaken the U. S in the world. That's what I worry about. Most domestically, we're gonna beat him. People think that the idea that were systemically racist. It's crazy. They think they're having their Children brainwashed is infuriating. They are Against policies that raised the price of gasoline on they realized that the hidden biting taxes of inflation I'm gonna lower chanted living of virtually every American So I think we do have a chance here much like Reagan. Uh, 1980. Now, all right. Reagan comes along. And all of a sudden people figure out that Jimmy Carter really is a disaster. And the result is Reagan, who looked like he couldn't win and sit in 79 wins the largest electoral college victory against an incumbent president in American history. On. It's because people just reached the judgment of judgment was card. You can't get the job done. My life's going to get worse. And I need to be in a position to Protect myself and the only way you could protect yourself with the fire. Carter, you know, we had a caller in the last half hour. Very interesting call and talking about the wide appeal of socialism and everything's free. You know, and our dear friend, we miss Rush, you know, had a great line about this. It's hard to compete with Santa Claus. But and I said, it's gonna take people thinking and getting an inch below the surface before you realize that the promises of Obamacare failed Medicare, Social Security of bankrupt States can educate our kids of colossal failure, and they can't even maintain simple law and order. So why would you believe all these other new promises? But the reality is there is truth competing against everything's free. It's that sounds good, too many people until they begin to realize that first of all, it's not free. Particularly young people need to realize in their lifetime with compound interest. How much they're gonna have to pay because of the debt that Biden is leading them. This is this is this is a Santa Claus. He uses your credit card and use your credit card a compound interest but would like you to like him until the credit card comes due. I think you should remember one other thing, too, that these wrong great point you're making. And you know, socialism's great Margaret Thatcher's until you run out of other people's money.
