Does Natural Immunity Beat Vaccines in Fight Against COVID-19?

"There's a new study out. That is really getting circulated. It's actually a couple of weeks old. i haven't seen it though. Comparing sars cova to natural immunity to vaccine induced immunity reinfection versus breakthrough infections. Study is quite stunning. But a new study published by it split into three groups fully vaccinated individuals may be at greater risk of cova than those unvaccinated. According to this massive study people who had taken both doses of pfizer jab are thirteen times more likely to have a breakthrough infection and are even at grassley greater risk for kobe nineteen hospitalizations. The vaccine individuals were found to have had a twenty seven times higher risk of symptomatic covert infection compared to those with natural munity from prior cova disease. Now you're not even allowed to mention natural immunity when we talk about all of this and so of course. Our leaders are so dishonest and our media the propagandists. They never ask the obvious questions. Which hey how're the really poor countries doing with covert. How were the countries with less than desirable healthcare. Now maybe you remember. Maybe you don't back in late. May there was a massive faucher virus surge in india huge daily cases that were making international news. Whatever happened to india while in utah pradesh. And we've covered this before. Do you know that you are pradesh has now reached zero cove. It how many of you would like to have zero. Covert right now in america. How did they do that. How did a poor country of india in a core part of india. How did they reach zero covert. How's that possible well. As we've mentioned they heavily prescribe ivermectin. They heavily administer ivermectin as a prophylactic and as a treatment and now they are at zero. Covert in utah.

"App. Federal Judge Merrick Garland is president Biden's nominee to become attorney general. He testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The hearing lasted most of the day We begin with committee chair Dick Durbin of Illinois. This hearing will come to order today. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to be the 86th attorney general of the United States. Judge Garland I wanna welcome you and your family. I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the

New antitrust legislation would check the power of tech giants

"Arguably the biggest problem with big tech. Is you know the bigness. A few giant companies gobble up their competition owned the digital advertising and web hosting markets control the information ecosystem and sometimes control the distribution of their own competition so far though these worries haven't led to regulation now democratic senator amy klobuchar who leads the senate subcommittee on antitrust introduced a bill intended to check the power of tech. Giant's it focuses mostly on acquisitions to prevent huge companies from buying potential competitors and it would force companies that control more fifty percent of a single market to prove that an acquisition would not reduce competition. Here's senator club shar. We all know that misinformation has been rampant on social media and it is greatly. Set us back. But there's another much more insidious problem and that is that any company that was starting to come and do cool things got bought and i think maybe you could look at this legislation as basically a reply to mark zuckerberg's email when he said about they're looking at what's happened instagram. These businesses are nascent but the networks established. The brands are already meaningful. And get this. And if they grow to a large scale they could be very disruptive to us.

Senate Republicans appear to congratulate Kamala Harris in Washington, D.C.

"Kamila Harris back of the nation's capital for the first time in her new role yesterday, casting an important vote and accepting congratulations in some cases from Republicans with more on the incoming V P and other news from the nation's capital. I'm joined by Maybe season as delicate terra. It has come to Harris even got a fist bump or two yesterday. Tell us about her day at the Capitol. Got straight. She did get a few fists on one of them from Senate Judiciary chair Lindsey Graham yesterday as they were quizzing the grilling rather, the big tech CEOs of Twitter and Facebook during that Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. She did return to the capital for the first time as vice president elect, and probably the most interesting thing to come out of that with the fact that she received a classified intelligence briefing in her capacity of senator which is interesting because she So far in her capacity as vice president elect has not been able to receive those briefings because the General Services Administration refuses to recognize her and Joe Biden as the president elected by President elect the General Services Administration being the body that kind of overseas the transition, so because of that, she and Joe Biden have not been able to receive that class of those classified intelligence briefings. But she did get a briefing yesterday in her capacity of Senator is does the GS to act on their own earthy at the behest of the president, who has refused to concede or accept the fact that this is a new administration coming in? So they technically act on their own. But there is certainly concerns. There are concerns that there could be you know political influence there and that the G s a is kind of doing that the president's bidding and then until President Trump decides to concede that they won't do it, either, But they do maintain that they are One of their own thing on act independently. I was Senator Chuck Grassley, who has said President elect Biden should be getting those classified intelligence briefings from the Trump administration. We learned yesterday has tested positive for covert 19. That's right. Yes, that's some bad news there. Senator Chuck Grassley, who is the most senior Republican in the Senate. He's just the second oldest senator of the oldest actually being Dianne Feinstein, who's just a few months older, but he is the most senior Republican. He's 87 years old, so high risk demographic there for covert 19, but his office does say he's not experiencing any symptoms. So that's good news. They don't know how he contract ID the virus. The concern is that he was on the floor of the Senate voting on Today, and he was also part of Ah closed door hearing or meeting rather with Republican leadership. People who were in that meeting, though, said that you know, Grassley has been really good about wearing a mask that everybody in that meeting was wearing a mask. But they're not too concerned about having contracting the virus. But he is, you know, the second this week that has announced that he is now isolating. After a possible covert exposure. The first being Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida, certainly wish them the best. Thank you so much as always say, and that's a bee season as delicate era in Washington. Come

"So I know we sent Grassley's office the all the information we had you prepared a packet for them and they called and thanked us for that which is nice and I know he's investigating do you know if you've been paying attention to any of this in Washington and and how it's playing over the last couple of days yeah it's actually kind of exciting really there's there's multiple senators that now are now jumping on this there's been secret service records that have been requested that are to try and track on a Biden's movements like where he was going during that time frame there's the treasury records that have been requested and also I think national archive records so they're definitely going at they're doing what they can I think to it to start it I personally think that we're going to see that the treasury records are what I'm mostly interested yeah treasury is the only one that could possibly untangle this not and not under Biden we have the clear path from the money laundering to hunter Biden so we know he's taken laundered money but we don't know what we need is is that a key to open up the rest of the laundered money chance that he would argue he didn't know was laundered money yes I think so yeah I I think that it's very possible that he just didn't know I think that in this up the scenario where the you know the administration might have been helping to fund this war anything Ukraine I would say it's not very likely that he would know because I think that his dad and he and him would have to be in on this that on some level see and I have to tell you it makes it I mean not that Joe Biden Joe Biden is he's dirty politician and in fact what's his name the described him as the the most corrupt vice president we've ever had Peter Sweitzer and he says most corrupt vice president in the history of America so he doesn't have a problem with corruption however putting your son into a situation where you have a chain saw a maniac you know a Tony soprano and you're putting him right in the line of fire that just doesn't seem like what a loving dad does and I do believe that Joe Biden is a loving dad just like on Becky's loving mom I was feeling that's the like it's the equivalent he might think he's actually doing the right thing but that doesn't mean you can break all the rules to do correct correct and so he's you know it it to me it explains if you're doing something like this there's no direct conversation about it look your country needs we've got a war and we found a way but you need to be a part of their now listen you're going to be compensated for your time and your risk but we need you we need you there to keep your eye on things and yada yada yada they both could walk away feeling like patriots you know and we didn't tell us part to Chuck Grassley I don't think but like it you know I I keep bringing up a succession the show on HBO when you have a son who's done all sorts of terrible things in his personal life and could his like could easily be ruined which is the case with hunter Biden and the key in the kids in that show.

"Bryan hope you're mornings going. Well, again, we're following today was the day that Mexico's supposed to be hit with tariffs and they were just going to be five percent tariffs. You're thinking to yourself. Five percent. That's, that's, that's not a big deal but apparently was enough to get the attention of Mexico because their government over the weekend. Capitulated to President Trump's terms and agreed to increase their security by one hundred fold along the southern border of Mexico Guatemala. They have increased about five thousand troops there and Chapas that southern state that borders, that's where the all the illegals are coming up through there. The beast is the train, that carried a lot of them, you know, they're, you'd see these pictures of the immigrants, the illegals riding on top of the train to get north. They've decided to stop that and get them off the top of the train, and they're not letting him do that anymore. They're stopping the caravans turning back. All for a five percent tariff. Man think what you're done. If he'd made a ten percent. Oh, cheese. Heads would be spinning. But you know what? Everybody was saying from, you know, Charles Grassley another Republican in name, only, and never Trumper to all the Democrats to Bernie Sanders saying, this is not the way you treat your top of the news. It's up the news, this is not how you treat. Our allies. Treat our neighbours guess what? Our neighbors have been mistreating us for years, Bernie, and you haven't done a dog on thing about it.

"Charles Grassley is opened hearings into the high cost of drugs one way or another. We're going to get some clarity. The American people deserve straight answers and real solution. The rising cost of drugs have become a hot political issue with President Trump valid to take action to bring down prices and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle making similar pledges the houses debating and preparing devote later today on a resolution that would terminate the president's emergency declaration along the southern border. Correspondent Phil Manningly reports. The house is expected to pass the resolution as is the Senate but not by veto proof margin. Publicans trying to stay in line. And that more than anything else will likely keep those numbers while it will pass both the house and the Senate will keep it below the veto override threshold. Meaning the national emergency declaration will likely stay in place, regardless of how Republican senators really feel about a Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell is weighing in on the state of the economy. He says the economy will not grow as strongly moving forward and decided volatility and trade is two big reasons as for jobs plummet rates for African Americans and Hispanics are still well above the jobless rates for whites and Asians like likewise, the percentage of the population with the job is noticeably lower in rural communities than an urban areas, in that gap has widened over the past decade, President Trump has arrived at the hotel in Hanoi where he will stay during his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Hoon crowds gathered on the streets with many holding up phone says he drove by Trump's in Vietnam for a second summit with Kim house.

"Here's the conclusion of my interview with the United States Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the finance committee. When are we going to get answers from Chuck Grassley? Well, first of all, I I'm maybe it's understandable that when prosecutions going on I can't tell you anything about Uber. But quite frankly, if I did, I couldn't tell you. But I don't know. In regard to the inspector general, all I can tell you is I have confidence in Horowitz as inspector general and Uber is working with the inspector general because see the inspector general can't prosecute. So presumably stations may Huber available to the inspector general, but their relationship. Ship. I don't have any information on. But I want you to know that I have great confidence in Horowitz on whatever he can is is investigating. And that's a follow on of the report that he gave us your. I think last October. And and and we were told that this will come out in a couple months now I met with Horowitz before Christmas. So that couple months maybe would be March or April. I don't know. Exactly. What what? Specifically, he told me at the time. Now, when do you expect the special counsel Muller, and whom I have great confidence to finish his work. I know that you're going to vote for Bill bar, your colleague Senator Blumenthal, quite expectedly. Always wrong is going to vote against him. I know you will vote for him. But neither of those votes have anything to do with. When Muller gets done. When do you expect to see the special counsel's report? Within a month? If we see it. But here's here's where Blumenthal retire on the same page, maybe for different reasons. Blumenthal's on a bell with me because he wants this report out, I suppose because it's gonna make Trump look bad. I look at it from this standpoint. I I don't care what the report says we paid twenty five million maybe thirty five million and the public ought to know what their twenty five or thirty five million bought and except for national security and privacy of individuals. And those would you be understandably re redacted everything else. I think ought to be out. I agree. I wanna see it all unless we're compromising a method or a source. Did you think you've watched the FBI for a long time you've held oversight for as long since? I was in the department of Justice wasn't there when they arrested Roger stone was that over the top and your opinion Chuck Grassley. Why? All of the FBI agents at cetera. Yeah. The answer is. Yes. But even more deplorable is the fact that somebody within the organization or close to the organization, and it may have been somebody just recently on the outside told CNN about it. So he'll be there. Do you expect last question? What do you expect from Bill bar is he going to clean this? I think Chris raise a great FBI director. I think Bill bars experience you expect this department to get straightened out. I it doesn't matter who's head of it. There's some institutional problems and one of the institutional problems is they don't have the proper respect for his Lord. I've changed some legislation within the last couple of years on that issue, but not enough and there's going to be every resistance. And if people don't wanna listen to whistleblowers, and do what whistle blower said that's a cultural problem within the organization, that's gotta change and I discussed this with Ray when he was up for confirmation. And he everybody keeps telling me they're going to have respect for wisdom are going to listen to them. But it just doesn't always turn out that way. And a last question, do you expect that we are going to find there was any collusion or conspiracy between the president of the United States and Russia? No, no. And getting back to your previous question. I tell people whoever whatever department they're going head either you run the bureaucracy or it's going to run you. Well, said Senator Grassley I look forward to talking to early and often good work on the finance committee. And tell Senator Graham you're there as his wing man, get them moving. Let's get these judges confirmed. I always appreciate talking to you Senator now. Thank you very much. Goodbye. Chuck Grassley answers every question. All right. I just I love him as a guest there is just no messing around. He tells you exactly what he thinks. He wants it. We we paid twenty five million dollars for the special counsel report. He wants to see it. He wants to whistle blowers. Listen to he wants drug pricing changed. He wants to judges to be moved forward. We're going to get Naomi routed. I didn't know that she's going to move forward. She'll be on the DC circuit within two weeks. And he is for changing the rules of the Senate. If the Senate continues to be dilatory in the Democrats delay tactics. Which means we're going to change the rules of the Senate because they're not going to change because there are left-wing crazy base is not going to let them change. Thank you out. And thank you, Ben. Thank you, generally Simone, Dwayne came in today. So he can actually post the Chuck Grassley thing, it's a new thing. And with the it's a it's a great thing for Tuesday to see Dwayne and Chuck Grassley he posted yet. Yeah. Because I typed it in real time eight that someday we're going to get that good. I remind you if you wanna think what I'll be tweeting tonight and throughout the day, the state of the union. My my bingo card is Venezuela drugs and border. I hope the president begins after acknowledging speaker Pelosi's returned to the gavel and complimenting her begin with the call for freedom. And then as Walea ends with a call for freedom in Venezuela. It's the story of the decade to make this.

"It's good to have you. Here this morning, what a show just typing up the guest list for the internet. You know, if you're not following me on twenty ought to be following me on Twitter and every morning. I tell you who who's going to be on because people like to say, okay, am I doing the order in which they come? And I always always always get Chuck Grassley wrong. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate finance committee will be along later today. But I always get it wrong. I always look for Senator Grassley Senator Chuck he's one of those guys that doesn't us Senator in his name. And that's why it's always kind of a pain in the neck. But I love you Chuck Grassley is always good. We'll get a couple of digs in it. The history channel what's going on today? What's the state of the Union Day? That means what be up late tonight. Trump is going to call for comedy. But according to the Washington Post political rivals are Scoffing. This is from David nakimora this morning facing growing political headwinds. He writes in the Washington Post President Trump on Tuesday. We'll try to convince the nation that his presidency remained strong and viable in the state of the union address the age described as a sincere appeal to broaden his governing coalition, but Trump is also expected to reaffirms demand for congresses. Support is hard line immigration agenda after a robust defensive foreign policy initiatives that have engendered fierce criticism from Democrats who asserted newfound power to blunt, his agenda. You know, what I'm looking for very very simple is a rallying call to Venezuela. That's what I I'm going to be doing commentary tonight for both the Washington Post and NBC. Yeah. With my popcorn couple of pieces here. And it's like it's like when I tweet during the Super Bowl, which is absolute must see tweeting. I will be doing this for the Washington Post won't be tweeting. I'll be sending a missile off to the Washington Post in the midst of often they NBC as the president goes through it. And of course, there are some rituals with this people standing up and sitting down people yelling things people not yelling things. I hope he begins with a generous. Congratulations to speaker Pelosi not just for being the first woman speaker, but the first woman to win back. The speaker ship is well kind of a special day for Nancy Pelosi, and we'll all we'll all wonder if he's going to say anything about Virginia. I'm not even sure anyone for Virginia's gonna go. I think they're embarrassed. I'm a Virginian. I'm glad I'm in California today. Have you been following Virginia? This is the post story on that the state capital hit a new level of chaos Monday as governor Ralph Northam ask staffers to stand by as he decided his fate. Well, the man who would succeed him Lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax denied the sexual assault allegation that appeared on a conservative website. North and gathered cabinet members and staffers to apologize for the pain caused by a racist photo in his nineteen Eighty-four medical yearbook. You really if I read this she like five years ago. No, one would believe any of this stuff that Virginia went elect someone who had a racist, black face Ku Klux Klan picture and his medical yearbook. Really this is two thousand and nineteen. He was elected two thousand seventeen we don't actually indulge racism anymore in this country. We don't not even close to it in a stake in racism, you get in trouble. You know trouble for that today for stupid racism as opposed to the old Ralph Northam kind of just out and out racism, Liam Neeson? You're you're not even going to believe this story. Can I just gonna skip to it? Liam Niessen describes racist revenge fantasy in newspaper interview. He did. The actor Liam Neeson said in an interview with a British newspaper last month that he wants spent a week walking the streets when the club looking for a black man to kill after a woman closed him was raped by someone. She said was black. She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way. Mr Nielson said of the episode which she said happened years ago. But my immediate reaction was that, you know, it was no well color were there were they she said it was a black person. I went up and down areas where the cauti- hoping I'd be approached by somebody the Northern Ireland born Mr Nielson said using a British word that describes a club like weapon. I'm Shay that. I'm ashamed to say that, but I did it for maybe a week hoping some black bastard would come out of a pub and have a go at me or something, you know. So that I could kill him. Mr Nielson made these comments which were published in the independent on Monday with an audio recording of the interview during a press event to produce new film called pursuit the remarks immediately were met with public outrage. What did he think? It's unfortunate and sick that Liam Niessen would in response to a tragedy. Simply seek out any black person to murder it's also homicide. I might add Melik. Russell a spokesman for the N double ACP. Shannon, Email paying suffered is not an excuse for racism. Yes. That's correct. If black people responded this way regarding all the time to our ancestors were lynched raped mutilated, tortured or shot down by police brutality. There would be too many bodies account. Mr. Russell added that was unnecessary. The fact that black people have not been able to blame for every white person for the deeds of racist whites as a tribute to our character as people Mr. Nathan, by the way has been nominated for an Academy Award for Schindler's List. He started the high profile series of films, including Lee Lamy's love, actually, Michael Collins gangs of New York Star Wars Episode one. He is done now for a while. Lisa was fun because the ways leeann Niessen could kill you cold pursuit. With just really written around the idea. We gotta add some things to the list of the ways that Leeson can kill you and cold pursuit. You've seen the trailer. If you go to movies, he's done. So now back to the governor and Lieutenant governor Fairfax in my home state, the New York Times right Virginia plunged deeper into political turmoil Monday now that's kind of turgid Jonathan Martin and Bill lender Virginia. No one's driving around in a state of panic felt like war of the worlds broken out. But you got to listen to this. You gotta listen to this because it doesn't get any better than this, Justin. Fairfax the Lieutenant governor has been accused of sexual assault had a press gaggle yesterday. And he blamed the governor for being behind it. Cut number two. Collect a pack is a statement. And so I don't know precisely where this is coming from. We've heard different things. But but here's the thing. Does anybody think it's any coincidence that on the eve of potentially being elevated that's win? This uncorroborated smear comes out as anybody believe. That's a coincidence. I don't I don't think anybody believes that's a coincidence again, particularly with something this the first time this was brought up it was a.

"The public needs to know what is going on. I demanded and I'm trying to organize everybody that I can to call for this Republic. This report to be released to the public. There's there Senate legislation if I'm not mistaken introduced today by Chuck Grassley, and Richard Blumenthal that would essentially require a public version of the report, I think with exceptions made for redacting classified information. Do you foresee something like that passing out of the house in short order? Well, I think it could pass out of the house. Let me just say this the puck. Public has been very patient. They've been waiting. We have heard bits and pieces here and there, and we want to know in the public deserves to know. And so I support the legislation that it should be made public. And if there's classified information that has to be redacted, so be it, but make this report public Steve Mnuchin was one of the people who who's been making the case about the sanctions for Ola der, pasta, the Russian oligarch, who, of course, also employed Paul Manafort had a contact since indicted intermediary named constant Kalinic who would go back and forth between them dare pastas. Businesses have essentially escaped now the sanctions acts from department of treasury because they reorganized in ways the treasury department says they're happy with a lot of people unhappy on Capitol Hill. What's your response to the administration's actions? I'm not happy with it at all. I think that the, you know at the center of this. Question about whether or not the president colluded with Russia with Putin or the oligarchs, etc. Is the question of sanctions, we know that Putin wants these sanctions lifted and I've said from the beginning that I believe in. I don't have the proof. But I believe that Manafort was set to the campaign to be there to ensure that they get Trump elected in every way, they possibly could. And this is an exchange for him lifting the sanctions and don't forget, our president has said that he believes this ancient should be listed a one way or the other. So I just believe that Mnuchin is, of course, a guided by the president they all apart of, you know, this relationship that they have with Russia and Putin and went oligarchs, I mean, when you take a look at all of the allies of this president that's involved in this whole question, you cannot help but ask yourself what's at the bottom of this. And. I think it has been asked more than one time. Why are they all lying? I think it's about sanctions. And I think is very important for us to continue to pressure to get those sanctions continued at enforce and not to do what we've just witnessed. They're trying to do. And that is be involved with de listing on the sanctions congresswoman, Maxine Waters. Thank you for your time tonight. You're welcome. Thank you next.

"Question Senator Wyden has pushed on the border separation policy by the Trump administration. You raise concerns on this last year to finance has jurisdiction over HHS. Are you going to hold any hearings on border separations not as of now, but I wouldn't say I wouldn't. But I did hold hearings on that when I was chairman of the judiciary committee. He did wrapping up because I know time is precious. You've been famously on Twitter for years, and your first tweet was from November two thousand seven that was before I tweeted that's before a lot of reporters. I knew tweeted near two thousand twelve tweet assumed dear dead is one of the the all time classics of the political genre. I know you've talked about being on Twitter and reaching your constituents. Why did you decide to get on so early for the same reason I decided to have satellite communication with my constituents on public television from here they could call in or questions? I same reason that maybe my staff, I don't remember this. But my staff was said, I was one of the first senators make use of the fax machine. Now, you don't even want to fax machine is. Museums or or or doctors offices, actually in other words, I hold town means like, you know, and each one of the ninety nine counties every Cuban a whatever you can do to get your message out, whatever you can do to encourage constituents to react to what you have dialogue is the essence of Representative government and Twitter's just one way of getting some dial. Like, I guess what I'm curious about was was there Senator Chuck Grassley at eleven o'clock at night logging onto Twitter did a staff member tell you about it or or. Yeah, you there's no way what ten years ago, even at age seventy five I'm not sure I'd be alerted to it. But but I like it now. And I'm glad some staffers was inventive enough to get me on it. There are they're the same ones that got me on the fax machine. Maybe generational a little different. There are younger members of. Grice who are turning to social media following in her footsteps beta or rock, a Instagram has dental cleaning. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez is on social media. Let are you planning to to Instagram your dental cleaning, do do you have any advice for these younger members since June trying to age the most I'm trying to do along that line? I'm trying to educate them about farming. Because two percent of the people in this feed the other ninety eight percent, so people need to know something about farming and appreciate it. So you can watch my corn watch as an example. That's it's hot social twenty three weeks of go back and look at each one of them. So you can find out how corn goes from putting seed in the ground to put an in at the local elevator. Senator I promise you we will include links to that in our in our show notes for this podcast last question. We were talking about this before we started recording. You were elected to the Senate in nineteen eighty you have had this job as long as I've been alive. Now, I've talked to your colleagues we even talked a little bit about this too about the golden age of congress feels like. It's passed. Was there a window in your thirty eight years in the Senate where you felt like things were were great because even ten years ago, there were certainly a lot of partisanship. It's a lot different now. Then when I came, but it the evolution happened. So slowly, maybe a little faster in the last ten years that it's hard for me to give you a window. I could give you a window on judges becoming so controversial. But generally speaking, it's kind of like, you know, you put a frog and cold water heated up to a boil and they die. But you throw them in the boiling water. They jump out it happened. So slowly that I I wouldn't want to say you talk about the frog in the boiling water. How does the water get cooled down? Is it even possible at this point? It's got to be possible for all. I don't think the country's going to be is ideal. Divided as grassroots forever. Like it is now. And if you would expect congress to be a reflection of the grass roots, you shouldn't be surprised when the coasts are blue and the center of the state country is bright red that congresswoman reflect that defeat like that frog in the boiling water.

"I I've always wondered this about you Senator I've heard you speak about transparent. See accountability oversight investigations at talk to your staff about oversight driven legislation. Was there a moment in your career where this all crystallized for you where you realized this is how I want to be as a Senator. These are the things I'm going to use on in nineteen eighty three. I went to the defense department to get some information on cost overruns. And I wanted to see a civil servant by the name of Chuck Spinney. That was in the the expert on this. I was met by a doctor shoo who was speaking for secretary Weinberger that said, well, I'll talk to you. But we can't have you talked to the civil servants. I said I wanna see Chuck Spinney you can come if you want to. So they I couldn't see Chuck Spinney. So let me see if a civil servant interesting. I went back to Capitol Hill and Weinberger called me up. Said we Republicans can't rely on these civil servants. This is the Defense Secretary out Reagan now, and I said, I'm going to get Chuck Spinney one way or the other and within three weeks or so we had a joint meeting of the of the budget committee and the Armed Services Committee in the Russell caucus room with eight television cameras, and I don't know whether five hundred people or three hundred people were watching and we had Chuck Spinney there, and we got the testimony we wanted and Monday morning. Chuck Spinneys face was on the cover time magazine. So that's why I decided, you know, you don't mess around with these people and ever since then you've been doing your oversight driven investigations, not only that, but it's a constitutional responsibility. You know, people think we just pass laws appropriate money. Then you forget about it. No, you're part of the checks and balances the government. And then you gotta make sure that the president Republican or democrat faithfully execute those laws. I heard you giving a floor speech on this last week when you're accepting your your role as president pretend he said, quote by conducting oversight and investigations, we hold the executive branch responsible to taxpayers. No matter which party is in power. How do you plan to hold the Trump administration accountable? I hope of already done it within the first month. He was in office. He sent a letter around or no they issued an edict that they're only going answer letter for committee chairman. We'll look at between the house and senators about forty or fifty committee chairman, what are you going to do about the other four hundred and eighty five years aren't forget about them. They're not entities. So we wrote him a seven page letter within a couple of weeks. They were up here. Talking to us. Maybe they came up to talk out of our position we talked to him for maybe an hour. A couple a couple months later the issued another letter saying that they were going to answer. Questions were any member of congress, and that has established your willingness to push you think on the Trump administration. You know, in fact, when I do when we have a Republican president, my colleagues say, well, why would you raise these questions with a Republican president doesn't matter where the ever Republican presidents are democrat breath. We style got the same constitutional responsibility to make sure that the laws are. Executed the way we intend him one more oversight..

"I think I showed my callers on pay for delay and creates as an example to pieces allegedly doesn't have to be in the committee. I'm chairman of. But I was chairman of that committee, and we move creates out of committee sixteen to five when last drug pricing question. You mentioned the hearings that are kicking off this week on Tuesday. You're going to have a lot of drug pricing hearings over your time leading this committee. Where'd you need to get too wet wet needs to come out of this committee over the next two years? Well, I again, you've heard me say at twice one simple word transparency. But I'm I don't want to lead your listeners, the believe that when I say transparency is sounds pretty simple is going to be tough to get that. At because I think the secrecy. We have now or the lack of transparency is something that that allows the the shenanigans that we read about every day to go forth, but transparency brings accountability. But I don't want. Those two words to be thinking that that's where I'm going to stop. But that's kind of a common denominator kind of a common sense common denominator, shifting gears a bit to an area that you have pushed transparency on hospitals when you were leading the Senate finance committee when you were ranking member I remember this because I was a hospital consultant at the time you were pushing regulations to make not for profit hospitals demonstrate that they deserved that status. Their hospital executives were really worried about you back, then should hospital leaders be worried. Now, are you going to revisit any of those hospital regulations? I don't know whether I would say that I'm gonna visit particular regulations, but I'm going to in oversight work. And then what that leads to? I don't know. But through oversight work. I intend to make sure that nonprofit hospitals meet their nonprofit responsibilities and that is to serve people. They can't pay for their their services. What about high bills surprise Bill? Some of that has gotten attention on media the past couple of years. I think that's another place where you get transparency. You can apply the same principle to the local pharmacists that thinks he can charge such and such for a drug maybe in October at the end of getting near the end of the year. He gets a big Bill. He's gotta pay the B PBS back a lot of money. Why the big surprise? I don't understand it..

"Democrat Senator Max Baucus for years, the two of you switching off his committee head, and and ranking member do you think you'll have a similar relationship in report with Senator Ron Wyden, the current democrat who's ranking member on the committee, everything that I've done Ryan Wyden. And so far, but a lot of it outside the finance committee. We've had we've worked very well together. And I'm starting out this year that will be able to work together. But you remember between two thousand one and two thousand nine the political environment than not so ideologically divided at the grassroots of America is much more ideologically divided the grassroots. So I think congress represents said ideological divide, and I believe that just the realities of politics twenty eighteen twenty nineteen make it more difficult to duplicate the very close working relationship that I had with Max Baucus because every bail, but maybe two or three that got out of committee. Or bipartisan, the only one I can remember is ObamaCare that got out a committee that wasn't bipartisan, and and we've had played more division even under Senator hatches chairmanship in recent years than normally what you'd have. But that's got nothing to do with Biden an eye getting long or not getting along. That's just kind of the reality of the political situation in America today reflected then in the congress will then thinking maybe beyond Senator Wyden, your committee has taken up drug pricing issues. You and Senator Wyden have worked somewhat on drug pricing already. But it's more than just the two of you. And on the committee. There's some Democrats really are aggressive about what they wanted to drug pricing. And there are some Republicans who don't seem all that interested in doing much at all how do you view your role? How are you going to bring them together as committee chairman to do something on drug pricing? I think is going to be very easy. I think almost on anything except a democrat effort to have the government dictate prices. I'm a free market person. I'm chairman when part d was passed. I was chairman during part d when when even Kennedy was against the government, the government, dictating pricing ago, stating prices, and so I come from an area where we wanted to.

"Did you feel like there's unfinished business? Yeah. It's because of the silly rules of the Republican caucus when you be when you use up your six years of being chairman of a committee. Then you can't be ranking member for six years, or whatever you have left to be. So I've used up my six years being chairman of the finance committee. I haven't used up my six years being ranking member of judiciary. So I spend two years the last two years of a six-year obligation for finance. So if we're in the minority twenty one and twenty two I can still be ranking member judiciary. Now, I could also choose to be chairman or ranking member of budget. But I'm not sure that that interests me, the judiciary committee also had a lot of circus like hearings the past couple of years. You presided over the judge Cavanaugh hearing was that a factor at all in thinking about moving back over to finance. No, no one factor. That is true of judiciary. Not true. Finance almost every Thursday. You have an executive hearing or army executive meeting. So you do legislation or do nominations, the the finance committee has executive sations but not on a regular basis. And so I think that I can spend more time on hearings where I had to share here is so many hearings than judiciary committee with other members of the committee. So I could do all the other responsibilities. I have particularly meeting with islands when they're in Washington. I'll have more flexibility now being chairman of finance thinking about finance,.

"With some Senator Grassley colleagues. Senator Bill Cassidy senators using. Hollins center. Lamar Alexander just look in the archives. You can find those episodes to and with that. Here's my conversation. With Senator Chuck Grassley Senator Chuck Grassley. Welcome to politico. Pulse. Check. Hey, I'm glad to be with you anytime. I get a chance to communicate when my constituents that's what Representative government's all about. And I hope they communicate back. All you're always communicating. You have so many different paths from from sitting down with someone like media using social media, which we will get to. But I wanted to start with this. It's a new congress. You have a number of new responsibilities including your president pro tempore of of the Senate. This is significant responsibility or fourth in line now for succession to the president. I'm curious what in your realm of new responsibilities has been most interesting or surprising to you. As president pro tem. I think the number of duties that the code requires that really has not a lot of discretion. It's mostly ministerial. Title or maybe say ceremonial, but really if you summed it up, the president of the Senate is the vice president United States, but as you probably know in the last seventy years, I think starting with Nixon when he was vice president vice presidents haven't presided over the Senate or be involved in the Senate very much except for vote breaking ties and in ceremonial things. So I like to summit up that president pro tem outside of being in presidential succession, does whatever the president of the United States or the vice president of the United States does as president Senate only you do it when he's not here, which is about ninety nine percent of the time. Does your staff now call you Mr President behind closed doors? No. No, they call me. Chuck, I I'm not at that level. So have to refer to you. As Senator Grassley, your chairman again for the third time of the Senate finance committee after giving up leadership of the judiciary committee. I'm curious why you decided to come back..
