"Comedy Jesus and you're very lush New York City backyard Hello reading from the New York bureau guys I'm really sorry that we have to have this conversation again for the second week in a row on the show It's going to keep on going on until I don't want to be nihilistic but this is going to keep on happening until everybody in America knows somebody who's been killed by a gun We have here's the difference with liberals Liberals care about people They don't know Liberals care when this sort of thing happens to someone else Conservatives care once it happens to them or someone they know They're homophobes until their son comes out They don't want universal healthcare until their neighbor has to do a GoFundMe to pay for surgery And I really fear that it's going to be that 1° of empathy that every Republican is going to have to know someone who gets shot before they do anything Yeah Yeah Well I mean and you guys let's do it We just forget We forget the cities and the body counts but you just said GOP reminds you 59 dead in Las Vegas 49 dead in Orlando 26 dead at sandy hook 17 dead at Parkland 13 dead at Columbine ten dead and boulder ten dead and buffalo 21 dead in ivaldi Are the price America must pay so unstable men would cash can easily get guns I mean I don't know how many ways we can say it right I said this last hour John but never again in other countries actually means never again New Zealand Australia Scotland It happens once and then that's it Then they enact sensible guns gun legislation and they never have it again Well that's why I think our job is to take the word patriot away from these people We have to take away their camouflage They don't get to call themselves patriots They don't get to call themselves pro life and they don't get to call themselves Christians It's really simple I'm tired of all their fake arguments You know they keep on saying guns don't kill people People kill people which I guess means the NRA is trying to help us by making sure there's fewer people Like right now Their convention today because they know gun bands work Yeah Oh yeah They're banning guns Two people safe And by the way when Lee Greenwood thinks you are right wing event is too tacky for him to show up That's usually a sign When Lee Greenwood turns down a plane flight somewhere to perform for a bunch of right wing slobbering goobers you know you've crossed the taste line When Don McLean takes his American pie back that's when you know yeah And you said to Republican Party reminds you you've got a mental illness problem not an AR-15 problem Oh and the mentally ill should totally be able to buy AR-15s Why does no one come right back at that At them with that John The first thing Trump did was make it easier for the mentally ill to get guns The first thing Greg Abbott did was cut funding for mental health They don't believe in that either They just use it as an excuse It's like abortion They don't want their taxes to go up to pay for all these poor babies They're going to be born to poor mothers You know they keep this is the party that says freedom isn't free but don't ask me to pay for it Right And they're not going to want to spend a dollar Oh we have to arm the teachers You want to have your taxes go up to pay for those weapons No We have to have armed guards and schools Oh like Columbine did How about all the good guys with a gun who stood outside the school for an hour on Tuesday They don't want to pay anything for it They just want to kick the can down the road because they just don't have empathy All their stupid arguments They are fit It's my God given right No An AR-15 is not your God given right It's your goddamned entertainment Or the Chicago racist Chicago Chicago Chicago every gun that's used in Chicago was bought across the border in Indiana where it's really easy to buy guns And they know that The New York was born in Virginia where it's really easy to buy Pennsylvania Yeah I mean by the way you said Ted Cruz is what happens when a televangelist mates with the ShamWow guy And that thank you because he's just I mean and by the way Republicans seem to literally only do the right thing when they're ashamed into it Greg Abbott at least canceled going to speaking at the NRA today to go to Yuval But he had to be shamed into it Yeah Yeah I mean John cornyn canceled right away but even he's a coward saying he had personal conflicts Before this happened exactly As soon as the conflict arose as soon as it happened look this happened because George W. Bush killed the assault weapons ban this happened because Greg Abbott lowered the purchase age to 18 You can pin it on those two Republicans above anybody else Yeah And John it is absolutely concentrated as we keep saying if you look at all the west however many I saw the grafts on TV ten 15 mass shootings They are all between the ages of 17 and 20 Yeah it's enormous And they're all male too by the way I want to say I totally support women being able to own any guns they want In fact I think we should make all guns free to women and make it really hard for men to get one because I think men have proven they're the gender we can't trust with this style of hardware And normally you would not punch down being that you are at a spectacularly well endowed man but you did have to point out to representative Randy fine who said imagine I have news for the embarrassment that claims to be our president tried to take your guns and you'll learn why the Second Amendment was written in the first place and you said imagine the micropenis it takes to write something like this Not that he wrote it with his micro penis Oh I think the microphone is probably helpful And John is overly in doubt So it seems like he's punching down with his enormous package but he's not Those letters though on the small iPhone screen My point is I hope the Secret Service made him a visit because that was an outright threat to the president first of all Yeah it was It was But they just do it for the attention.

Beto O'Rourke Crashes Gov. Abbott's Press Conference on Uvalde Tragedy
"So yesterday in uvalde, Texas, the governor Greg Abbott, along with the lieutenant governor Dan Patrick, the mayor of uvalde, other elected officials, law enforcement officials attempted to hold a press conference. Beto o'rourke, this clown who wants to be Texas next governor, decided to make an ass of himself and stood up and interrupted the press conference by screaming accusations at the ivaldi and state government leaders. This is a little bit of what the pandemonium and chaos sounded and looked like. You can watch along if you're watching us today on the Salem news channel. Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me. Let's just sit down. You're out of line and an embarrassment. Sit down. And you are doing nothing. No, we're off. We need to get his ass out of here. This didn't have place to talk to the show.

Beto O'Rourke Attempts to Disrupt Gov. Abbott's Press Conference
"And it's some lunatic email me Charlie it's not a national tragedy. Let me just shut up. It is, okay? You got 19 elementary kids. Murdered in a classroom, all right? So yes, it is. That doesn't happen every day. God forbid. So we're kind of on the fly here. And so. The whole thesis that we had here was that Democrats are going to overly politicize this and make it all about themselves and their political agenda. And as if right on cue, Robert Francis o'rourke couldn't allow governor Abbott to host a press conference on mental health and the facts related to it and barnstorms and bum rushes the stage like an unhinged activist and start screaming with his flailing arms of which there's not a detectable ounce of testosterone or muscle mass on the entire being of the wannabe Hispanic Irish man trust fund baby open border advocate gun grabbing activist from El Paso, Texas, who hell yes is going to take away all your guns soon to be three times failed candidate in Texas where he can't win a Senate race. You can't win a presidential race and he's not going to win the governor's race. And man, again, I have plenty of disagreements with governor Abbott on a lot of things. I don't think he acts fast enough. I think he's been fine. I don't think he's like Kemp, who's a total disaster. But if you want to turn me into a big Greg Abbott fan, congratulations, Robert Francis o'rourke. You've done that as you bum rush the stage and make yourself look like a fool, make your entire political party look like nothing more than opportunists. Okay, all right, let's just play it.

Ron DeSantis Evolved From a State Figure to a National One
"Desantis has turned his state position into a national platform more than any governor in recent memory. People have talked about other governors, Greg Abbott and Texas, Christie nome, as being potential candidates in the future, but I think it's probably fair to say that neither of them are commenting or taken as national figures yet. But scientists really is. He's not just taken as a prospect for the future, but as a national figure now. And CNN has noticed that. They go on to talk about the way that desantis has a cross the board been advancing the conservative agenda. Of course, is, well, his very latest move is to set up, but I kind of love the term, the election police. Now, I don't even think this guy has seen 2000 mules yet, but he's clearly aware that a, there's a problem and B, there's a lot of concern on this side of the aisle about that problem. In other words, no one is ready to forget about well, there are a few Republican establishment of those figure out about the 2020 election. Let's not look in the rearview mirror dinesh. Well, we can't really go forward without knowing the truth about what actually happened. So desantis, I think, has a political antenna that recognizes this. And so he's taking steps in that area. He's obviously pulled the tax support for Disney. And I'll talk about that a little bit later in the podcast today. And on the show, he's taken on critical race theory, the Florida, the state of Florida, that recently rejected a whole bunch of math textbooks. Why? Because they have all kinds of emotional and quote social learning. Well, how do you, when you look at an equation, how does it how does it make you feel? You feel sort of intimidated by numbers. And look, I'm not saying that there's no place at all for some consideration of how you feel. But a little bit of ruthlessness, I think, is the right approach. I mean, I say this is someone who was subject to a pretty heavy handed math education. Memorize this. Remember these formulas. And then just apply them to see which one works in a given situation. This is not ultimately about whether you are feeling sad today. This is about getting the correct answer.
Migrants Arrive in D.C. On Buses Sent by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott
"Debbie and I are talking about the border crisis. And it seems like governor Abbott had sort of well, I don't know if you'd call it an naughty idea or a little bit of an in your face idea. But his idea was, listen, you know, if the Biden administration is importing all these people because they want him in this country, well, maybe they should have to deal with them directly. And so Abbott's idea and apparently the first Texas bus. Put the migrants in the bus. Now you can't force them. So it's the migrants who agree to go. Voluntarily, and the first bus drops them off blocks from the U.S. capitol building. Apparently Fox News found out that this particular bus of migrants came from the Del Rio sector, but there were people in there from Columbia from Cuba from Nicaragua from Venezuela. They apparently had all these wristbands, and so when they got there, the bus driver was like, let's cut off your wristband. You're free to roam the streets of D.C.. So I mean, this is kind of a nightmare. And I think Abbott is only doing what he can do within his limited jurisdiction to say, listen, you want him, you got him. Right. Well, did you hear Jen Psaki talking about it? She acted like, oh yes, it's great. It's a great idea. So I think that they're trying to play a little game here because they're wanting to pretend like it's not like it's a good thing. Even though they know it's bad for them, it looks really horrible. The optics are just awful.
Greg Abbott's Marvelous Migrant Plan
"Greg Abbott, the governor of Texas has a great idea that he is now carrying out. What's the idea? The idea is really simple. The Biden administration is taking in all these illegals across the border and then dumping them in all kinds of places around Texas. And habits point is, we don't really want them, but you evidently want them because you're letting them in. So you can have them. And essentially what Texas is doing is it's now chartered 900 buses to take these illegals to dump them in Washington, D.C.. You have them.
Sebastian Went on an Unusual Mission for Salem...
"But yesterday I spent the whole day with my colleagues from Salem, the incredible Dennis prager my rabbi with Eric metaxas with Larry elder. And one of our newest podcast members from the podcast stable, the incredible founder, the president of turning point USA Charlie Kirk. And it was an unusual mission. I hadn't done this before. I've been interviewed many times you've seen me on TV. I've been part of documentaries like Amanda milius is amazing the plot against the president. But yesterday, we were invited to do something a little bit new. We sat down in a lovely facility. It was a bar that had been shot down for our purposes for filming. And we were part of a new movie by dinesh de Sousa the great dinesh decision the man who was politically persecuted and imprisoned by Obama, and who was then later pardoned by my former president Trump. And he has a new film that is coming out in April imminently. It was teased by Greg Abbott at the Texas rally with president Trump at the weekend, the trailers out there. It's called 2000 mules. Hashtag 2000 mules. I wasn't sure about the title, and I can't divulge everything that's in the movie, because well, I believe, and I told you this much, and I think my team here agreed with me. That we have the evidence. After that video was made available out of Westchester county. Of the local police, intercepting in the dead of night, actually in the wee early hours of the morning, an unmarked jumbo jet being accompanied by CIA contractors from the mvm LLC company in Virginia. Ferrying hundreds of illegal aliens. Across America as those contractors said, on video, with the audio, into the body cams of those police officers. We don't want the media. We don't want attention because we don't even know where these illegals are ending up in America. It's above my pay grade, and do you know why? We don't want the attention because of whose in office. Because everyone knows it's
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Blames Biden for Lawlessness
"Governor Abbott, to Maria bartiromo. About Biden and crime. Let me put this in context. You've seen you probably have reported on the lawlessness that we've seen in cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles and Portland and Seattle in Minneapolis, Chicago, and New York City, where they have defund the police or they have criminals who are completely disregarding law enforcement. That attitude starts at the top. It starts with the president. And when you have a president of the United States, who himself is ignoring the law, refusing to enforce the law, allowing criminals to break that law goes down into the entire system. And that's why when Biden does not enforce the border security laws, when Biden allows people in the country illegally, knowingly and telling the public that people get to roam around illegally when Biden is involved in secretly transporting people that they apprehend down here and they drop off in New York State. People see that. And they know that's lawlessness.
Why Lt. Col. Allen West Is Running for Governor of Texas
"I'm talking to the lieutenant colonel, but he since we're friends now I can just say colonel. Colonel Allen west, you're running for governor of Texas. I want to talk to you about January 6th, but I also want to talk to you about why you're running for governor of Texas, not in Texas, but when I was decided to do this, will you be running up against Greg Abbott? Is he stepping aside? What is your where do things stand in the world of Texas politics today? Yeah. Well, first and foremost, I'm not running against anybody. I'm running for the state of Texas and really when you think about Texas is so important to the survival of our constitutional republic America. And when you look at what is happening here in Texas, you know, it's January and January is national slavery and human trafficking month. Texas is the number one state in the United States of America for human and sex trafficking. Dallas and Houston and I live right outside Dallas, Dallas and Houston are the top two cities with sex trafficking in the United States of America. You talk about the drug trafficking crisis that we had last year over 100,000 drug overdoses. All that fentanyl has come across the border right here in Texas. And so I was taught in the military that warriors moved to the sound of the guns. And as you know, I was the chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. And so there are many legislative priorities that you can advocate for that for whatever reason. We're not getting past here in Texas. And so that's why I stepped down as the chairman of the party to run to be the governor party. And I can tell you one of the most heinous things happening here in Texas is that we have child gender modification processes and surgeries going on. And so we have hormonal therapies, gender transition therapies and puberty blockers being given to our children as young as 8 years of age, we're seeing surgeries being done to remove healthy body parts, but yet we couldn't get that pass. We couldn't go to school choice pass. We couldn't get historical monument marker protections passed. So there's a lot of those things that, you know, people came to me and said, hey, look, we need a strong constitutional conservative, to stand up for Texas. And that's why I ended up running for
Immigration Enforcement Encountered Nearly 2 MILLION Migrants in 2021
"I want to talk a little about the border. 2 million. 2 million people crossed illegally. In the southern border in 2021. It's an invasion. It's that simple. It's an invasion of our republic. Border encounters in Yuma are up 2000 405%. Play cut 31. Well, it's not surprising because in 2019, if we go back for a little history, we were having a similar surge during the Trump administration.

Gov. Ron DeSantis Had Solutions for COVID Unlike Joe Biden
"One of the issues the President Biden got sideways with governor desantis about how many monoclonal antibody treatments he ordered Now you know Florida we got hit hard by the delta surge Whole country did but we did get hit hardest of any state during the course of the delta search And he was prepared He was prepared In fact what's pretty remarkable If you take a look at outcomes in the state of Florida despite our older demographics there are among the best in the country I'll get that to that here in just a bit But a governor doing what President Biden just today said should be done He said that the solution with the states quoting the president there is no federal solution This gets solved at the state level Our governor Ron DeSantis you have Greg Abbott in Texas ordered these treatments And they were available we got them and then the president of the United States blames our governors for being prepared And then you take a look at what he's saying today Well the reason we don't have test is why Well if you cut through the crap because the federal government wasn't prepared Why Because Joe Biden is president of the United States not Ron DeSantis As an example
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Launches Construction of State Border Wall
"Texas is building its own border wall. And this is good news. I got to give kudos to governor Abbott. Texas is officially started construction on a border wall. Let's remember, this is the border wall that the Biden administration has refused to carry through on. The government, by the way, paid for all kinds of construction materials. They're just sitting there, and the Biden people have not only said that we're not going to use them, even though we paid for them, but we're not going to let Texas use them. So think of how malicious these people are, even though the funds have been expended, they are trying to block the idea of Texas moving forward. But Texas is saying, listen, we're going to build a wall, we're going to fill gaps in the wall that are there now. And we're going to do it starting now. Bill melligan, the reporter from Fox News, who has been Fox News LA, I believe. He's really been on this issue. And he points out in reporting on this that Texas is going to be using they're not going to use federal funding. They're going to use Texas funding. So we, the Texas taxpayers are going to pay for this. And apparently, governor Abbott is using the exact same contractor that the federal government had contracted with to build these walls. The wall panels are going up starting in star county in the Rio Grande valley. And this is what Abbott calls operation lone

Beto O'Rourke Steps Into Texas Gubernatorial Race Against Abbott in 2022
"The Democrats have an agenda to try to turn Texas blue. They keep saying it's going to turn blue. Big news today, beto o'rourke, he's back. Running for governor challenging Greg Abbott, let me get the dean of Texas talk show hosts responds to that big breaking news. For those who don't remember 2018, beto o'rourke came out of virtually nowhere in El Paso member of Congress and managed to excite enough Democrats that he came to within two and a half percentage points of Ted Cruz, our biggest conservative rockstar. That was 2018. This is three years later. What's different now? Well, one thing he's running for governor and not for the Senate, the other thing is three years of time passing. The questions become, does he still have the same kind of moths to a flame drawing power for Democrats that he had three years ago? I think the short answer to that is yes. Democrats are naturally thrilled by the notion of having a rockstar like beto, run for governor. But you know what other kind of group beto energizes? Conservative voters. Who for three years have had a good solid memory of how crazy he is on the Second Amendment. In deeply wrong he is on boarders and the economy. He is saddled with the albatross of Joe Biden in this gubernatorial race. And so in taking calls on the fly about it, this very morning, I found two types of voters who were stoked that beto is running. Democrats ready to vote for him? Republicans ready to vote against him, so the key question is going to be which is the larger group. I think beto finishes closer to Greg Abbott, presuming he's the nominee. He does have competition. He finishes closer to Abbott than any other Democrat would have, but do I think beto is going to be the next governor of Texas? I decidedly do

Yeah they didn't sign this bill. Maybe they didn't you know. Put out that executive order here and there but most of us could chalk that up to politics right policy. That's just politics. Yeah austin's the swamp and yada yada yada but then because abbott thought it was politically expedient to follow whatever foudy fat. Hey the militias midget whatever fao she said. And whatever the popular opinion was he did the mask mandate he did the fifteen days to slow he bought into all of now every every one every senator day even the great ron disentis did but the saint as we all know turn heel and came back real quick not turnhill but turned around turned him and tried to get that taking care of Abbott didn't abbott holt held onto it.

We're going to give you this this parting favor. If it'll shut you up. And and i was like i kind of went along with it and they made a mistake and let me pass it too soon and immediately i went into just burned everything down again and they they got mad and we had scheduled a press conference with grassroots people unpaid volunteers who had been working on this issue for years in the legislature. Who were signed up to be there at the signing of the bill and they were going to get a pen and all this stuff. Because i was a bad boy on another issue that got canceled without telling me or any of these grassroots people and he and i find out that he goes on twitter and does a twitter live. I mean when.

Who's allowed in the press conference to who's allowed to have a bill signing two whose name it's gonna be in it doesn't matter it's all a game and it's the greg abbott show and he's done it to the party. He's decimated the republican party. Structurally it used to be that the republican party a texas had money in the campaign account. They would hire campaign. operatives block walkers they would hold the data from different campaigns and republicans would work together. When greg abbott became governor because of the amount of money that he had he ended up taking ownership of everything all the money had to go through him. In fact the party even stop keeping a regular database like from a campaign perspective. If you were running something. You had to coordinate with greg abbott. Which means you had to be in good with greg abbott. Which means you had to do. What ever greg abbott said and as a result we now have a party where the infrastructure is gone. The blockers and the politico's aren't with the party anymore. They're in greg abbott team. Wow they hold hostage. People people think we're lying. We're not lying This is this is the real real t.

I see a lot of conservatives in texas now kind of look at greg abbott. They're like okay on paper. Yeah looks good. Yeah looks right. Looks good and greg. Greg abbott has literally made a career. I mean we're talking about a guy. Career politician been in there for years and years and years. The interesting thing about greg. Abbott is is that he has never truly been under the microscope. He's never had a republican primary challenge before when he was a judge when he was on the supreme court when he was attorney. General and up until you guys through your hat in the ring. He's never had to answer to republican primary voters and it's frustrating because some people don't understand the process usually most texans right now if they hear you say anything negative about greg abbott. They assume that you are a liberal democrat. Well the process. Is we get to pick which republican represents us and this is the first time the texans have had a chance to actually look at greg and on the surface it is. You know the facade. It's the theater that they have put together over time with a lot of campaign dollars of from special interests and put him in position To look like he's a conservative and because he's never had an opponent no one's ever pulled back those layers and actually gotten into it. And when you do you very quickly just like your analogy. Realize things are not at all what they seem. We're dealing with a guy who is really mastered how to be what i call campaign conservative. But that yeah. He's a campaign conservative. But i've been down there with him. I was there with them for two years when he was attorney general six years when he was governor. And i'm telling you that is not the case i saw with my own eyes I was in the back rooms when things were happening..
