"S AM eight ninety. Welcome back to the Ben Shapiro show. So how radical are the Democrats now? Well, they've decided that abortion two points of birth is not only something that they should defend ideologically. But something they should enshrine law. There used to be a time when Democrats were in favor of safe legal and rare that is not a thing anymore. Safe legal, and rare is not a thing for Democrats. The only thing they care about. Now is the ability to kill babies up two points of birth. And this is not an exaggeration. This is a basic obvious truth. I'm not the one who's even saying it. There's Virginia Bill that is now set to legalize abortion all the way to points birth. It was introduced by democratic delegate Kathy TRAN in Virginia. When questioned about the Bill on Monday by a Republicans elegant name, Todd Gilbert, Virginia house majority leader acknowledged it would allow abortion, even at the very end of pregnancy with a woman was going into labor. So the woman is going into labor at thirty seven weeks of pregnancy. And you can plunged a knife into the back of the baby's head and kill it under this Bill. Hey, here's this lady acknowledging exactly that it's pretty astonishing. How late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated it would impair the mental health of the of the woman or physical half. Okay. Okay. I'm talking about the mental health. So I mean through the third trimester third trimester goes all the way up to forty weeks. Okay. But to the end of the third trimester. I don't think we have a limit in the Bill. So where it's obvious that a woman is about to give birth. She has physical signs of that. She's about to give birth. Would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified she's dilating my Bill would allow that? Yes. This is infanticide. There's other way to put it that is infanticide. If you believe that these the ten centimeters between the dilation of the cervix and the exit of the separate human being from the womb is all that defines humanity. You are insane. This is full scale support of infanticide is now being backed by Virginia Democrats, Virginia Democrats, not New York. Democrats California Democrats, not Massachusetts Democrats Virginia Democrats in New York. This is already become illegal there at least seven states where you can now abort a baby all the way up till points of birth. I mean, this is. Utterly uncontroversial stuff. We're not talking about a we're not talking about a fertilized embryo, we're not talking about an egg that was fertilized three days ago, and whether or not you should be able to get the morning after pill. Okay. Well, we are talking about now is a fully formed human baby in every aspect. Every aspect of this baby is completely formed. This is infanticide. This is human sacrifice to molest. I mean, this is this is like Biblically enjoyed and the only reason I cite the bible is because the bible was enjoying actual child sacrifice. This is actual child sacrifice. If for the mental health of the woman, you believe that you can cut a baby apart in the womb that is fully alive. This is this is insane. But this is how far the Democratic Party has moved in order to fight back against Republicans who say that life should be preserved. He position Democrats have taken at the end of life is to be celebrated the ending of life. That is not your own even is to be celebrated. When it's not just in Virginia. The Rhode Island. Governor has now signaled that she is willing to go forward with all of this. According to Michael Bilger over at life, news dot com. Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo who is purportedly Catholic. She's pushing a radical pro abortion Bill the legislation would legalize abortions for any basically any reason up to birth. A state house committee is expected to vote on the Bill as of today earlier this month Raymonde L promised to support the pro abortion Bill and her state of the union state of the state address. According to NBC ten said, let's make this the year we codify women's access to reproductive healthcare here in Rhode Island. This is a war on human life. And this is in fact, a war on religious practice it visit because let's be clear about the next step here. Hey, it's not just about the killing of the on board with should be gross and horrifying enough. But this is going to result in is the state telling doctors that they must perform these abortions or lose their medical license. This is where this is going ObamaCare. Contraceptive mandates were already moving in this direction. There is are even in the state of California. You're allowed right now to refer out to other providers who provide an abortion, but I believe you must do. So I believe that you're supposed to I want to check the law in the state of California. But last I checked I believe that the law in the state of California is if you're religious practitioner, I if you're an OBGYN in the state of California who doesn't perform abortions and a woman comes in and says, I want an abortion, you must by law refer her to somebody who will provide that abortion. I believe. If it's not that way to be because that is what Democrats want Democrats are radical on these issues. This is not in line with the American with what the American people want, but the affect of American politics is now resulting in substantive change right mean by this is that the hatred that both members of both parties feel for one another is leading to actual policy radicalization. It used to be that people in each party. You know, even though they disagreed with each other didn't really hate each other on the deep root level that members of the parties. Now despise one another. And what that means is that you're at least grant a grant. Br the basic humanity of the person with whom you were talking there when you have a conversation with somebody if you ever wished to reach any sort of agreement or even to be in the same room with them. You have to assume good intentions. It's something I've been working on in my own life, and in my own career trying to assume good intentions of people with whom I disagree. But if the other person doesn't assume good intentions on your behalf, if they assume the your positions are driven by animus that is going to lead them to reject your positions and take the exact polar opposite position. So for example, if the people on the left with regard to abortion assumed that people who are pro-life simply wants to preserve the life of infants even if they disagree, then maybe they would respond by saying, okay? Well, what's a reasonable way to define life? And then we can have an argument over that. I would still be pro life. Now, I'd still think that the pro-abortion side is wrong. But at least then you can have a conversation that is steeped in science and not steeped in insulting the other side. If however pro choicers believe that pro-lifers simply wants to control the bodies of women. And are ensconced in a fight to be tyrannical Handmaid's tale purveyors, well, then the reaction is going to be well any attempt to limit abortion access is really about controlling the body of women. We can't have that. So let's just legalized abortion all the way up till birth. In other words, when he started assuming bad faith on the part of the other side, it leads directly away from moderation. You can see the Democrats doing this with Howard Schultz, a Howard Schultz was one of them until he wasn't. And now that he's not one of them. They're castigating him as badly motivated until five minutes. Go Howard Schultz is a good guy. The kind of guy wasn't gonna put Christmas colors on Starbucks cups and who's going to ensure the bathrooms would be available to all without purchase in Starbucks stores. Then he walked outside the party line, and now his evil rich white billionaire terrible terrible personnel, which means all of his positions can be thrown out as well. The reliance of Democrats on the belief in the bad intent of their political opponents. That's what's driving this radicalization right now. So we may think that it's just about you know, the social fabric, but there are actual policy ramifications to all of this. If you cross the line politically for Democrats than many folks on the left will immediately assume are now a bad person. And that means there can be no moderation. There can be no negotiation. It is over. We'll talk a little bit more about that in just a second. But first, let's talk about things that are not smart. You know, it's not smart when you're looking for an employee and you go to one of those job boards the job boards. The candidates that are qualified for the role you posted the job boards that send you a mile high stack of resumes to sort through.

"Tony basketball on your Monday morning. It's January the fourteenth in for Saint saint-pierre Ron returns tomorrow morning. Well, facing the inevitable prospect of being circled by states that have legalized recreational marijuana Governor Gina Raimondo will propose this week that Rhode Island do the same. She says shall do this with reluctance, she's resisted this for four years that she's been governor. But now things have changed mainly because all of our neighbors are moving forward with legalization. The proposal included in her budget plan for the fiscal year, beginning July, I would create one of the most regulated recreational pot industry's in the country. The governor said aimed at reducing the health and safety problems experienced in some of the other ten states that have approved recreational use in recent years, while President Trump is popularity and his approval ratings changing by the minute. And of course, the government shutdown has changed law that let's find out. What's happening? We say good morning to Fox News is Rachel Sutherland. And good morning. Rachel. Hey, good morning. Happy monday. Well, yeah. And here we are in day twenty four with no end in sight where we're in uncharted territory. The US has never been here before with the government shutdown this long, and and we're seeing that Republican Senator Lindsey Graham that board with some kind of solution in that he would want to keep the government open for a few weeks. Let the discussions continue. And he says the at that point. If they can't reach his voice, and he says, Mr President go ahead and declare a national emergency. So that's where we are today. And we're seeing hundreds of thousands of federal employees going without paychecks. So. Tough time for a lot of people. And when you look at approval ratings, you look at Trump, and you look at the base, obviously, this was the huge campaign promise. Lot of the base went along with this at what point do people start to get a sense that some of the Republicans in congress start to go the other way with their constituents again people can have a viewpoint. But once you're you know, you're not getting paid. And you can't feed your family and times are tough things can change. That's right. There are some Republicans have been breaking with the president on the shutdown, but they're kind of the usual suspects that he choosing Collins of Maine, Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. These are the folks who often break with the president. So you don't have you don't have Republicans yet in math saying, Mr President. Let's stop this. Basically Republicans are holding rank Mitch McConnell. The Senate majority leader has said he won't bring any legislation to the floor that doesn't have the hopes of a presidential signature. So. As far as the solution. I think that probably Senator Graham Lindsey Graham may have something here that may keep the government open for a little while we'll have to see it because this is really the first full week that congress has been back though, we turn today for the first full week since Democrats took control how and when we look at a, you know, a deal or concessions is there still do a lot of people still get a feeling that the president could just call the national emergency and not have to worry about congress. Idea. That's being floated around it is not without controversy. And it's not without historical precedent either. President Harry Truman declared an emergency in nineteen nine hundred fifty eastern to Korean war because the steel workers we're going to go on strike on either the strike, he addressed the nation and said, this is an emergency. We can't pull they needed bomb. He needed to stuff. So he he actually had a pretty good argument. And it went to the supreme court case called Youngstown, and then the supreme court slapped term and downers that you don't have the ability to take to seize control, the steel industry and the steelworkers ad. I think that the three days of striking. They weren't paying creases. This is this is decades and decades ago right to life is changed where to hold me different supreme court different the national emergencies act was passed in nineteen seventy six I believe so things have changed. But maybe they haven't taste that much because you have a precedent in law. That's why you may see the president. This hedging on doing this. Because the law may not be on his side. I'm not a lawyer. May not be on the side. And I think you raise a great point about this kind of being the first full week back for everybody. Maybe this will get to everybody together. And hopefully, we get this thing done because nobody wants to see this drag on any longer. Well, I don't think anyone does it. It's it's been tough, but you know, food inspection to stop so routine. Inspections. So if you're romaine is bad, you're not gonna know it. Stuff like that. It's it's if you don't feel it outside the beltway, you masive. All right. Fox's Rachel Sutherland, great stuff. Great information. We always great to hear from me. You have a great day. Rachel. Seven twenty. Now, let's go to traffic.
