"Back. I watch on your line just willing to laugh this today on the then I won't rub it in too much. Maybe he'll come along. Next time we had to head to Norway, or maybe you want to you wanna take a trip with me down to Switzer's. You can do that without leaving wherever you're at right now, just close your eyes unless you're driving and just smell on the grill that North Dakota raised beef way goo, and Angus the only store that carries North Dakota raised way, Gooby known for its intense marveling, Schweitzer's gourmet meats and all of their burgers are North Dakota raised jerky is made from beef raised right in western North Dakota homemade brought beer brought cheddar brought homemade. Summer sausage. It is so good. You can't believe it meat sticks. Of course. Countries Dow sausage. You tell him you heard about it on what's on your mind, you'll get a discount six twenty five south Washington, next to runnings stop and see him till Scott, set you to Schweitzer's a texters. I always hear the poll results, but nobody ever asked me, and then amazing, don't believe pulses is another. I have a make America great hap- cap scare scared to wear it. Because what happens car damage. Verbally attacked Trump twenty twenty I wore one mall of America, one time as an experiment, and I got few thumbs up. Few smiles no violent reactions at all. Texter says, hey, all my gosh. Look at this picture find that Norway, just kidding your trip is going, great picture was taken by me, two miles north of Ross North Dakota. It's a moose, I love it. What do you call a baby moose baby? Most most. Yeah. Yeah. I think so. Caf-. Decaf. There's a lot of people snickering right now. Kevin you realized they live in their lying. Now. We should not predict the I yeah, I predict the event evangelical turnout for twenty twenty. President Trump won an all time high. What certainly a very important constituency in. You know, it's amazing. I saw something forget where some fake news outlet time magazine or something. It said that Trump was the candidate most admired by the religious, right? That wasn't the term they use. But they were basically saying, you know, evangelical or whatever. If you if you are church on Sunday, you're kind of a foreign object to most people in the mainstream media. They don't even know what that means. You go to church every week. So, but that the, the, the premise of the article was that Trump is admired by them, even though he is in one of them. So you wouldn't be considered evangelical wouldn't be, and I always talk about the story. I most appreciate about Donald Trump faith coming from two people. We know on this program one Mike Lindell, who said the first time you met him before he was president was named president yet, he was a candidate for president and was called up to Trump's office, and it was an hour long meeting in forty five minutes was talking about God. So I don't know who they are to question, Donald Trump's faith. Who, who, who are we to do that? Well, he's an affairs. Well, okay. Well, there's been a lot of people that are dependent flair. But even. So how long ago was that, you know, they make they make no sense, but see, obviously people that have faith. They know that we're all thinner. Right. And that, that, that, that doesn't preclude you from ever being a person of faith if you have the same because we all have, but. You try and educate them. I can't do it. Let's get back to the phones here who was next. Let's see here got lots of text coming in. But I want to get to these calls to jesse's on the road. Jesse? Go ahead. You're next on what's on your mind. Good morning guys. Glad to listen to the I don't always get the chance. I really think the polling data this doesn't matter all you saw what happened a personal action so far off. It was laughable. But I wanna bring it around to a wall, we'll deal here. I know the nationals kind of grabbed on the news. But I'm seeing a lot of stuff online. There's breath of information out there that Heidi Heitkamp is thinking about running for governor. Is she never gonna learn or done with her? I know you know, I, I don't believe that I really, I really don't have heard the same things. And I think it's people that sort of get a jolly or two out of, you know, throwing out rumors and seeing, they'll stick. It's come from no one of any credibility whatsoever within the Heitkamp camp. Number one. Number two, you're right. She would lose. I mean it would not even it would not even close. He's proven that ready. I mean again on the on the statewide level Heidi Heitkamp after being attorney general she ran for governor against John Hoven and lost. She ran for Senate against Rick Berg and barely won. I mean by the nose hairs, right. I mean, we're, we're talking as as close as you can get against, you know, a candidate that didn't have the best staff. Let's just put it that way. Okay. It was it was not. It was not a well run campaign. And, and then she lost by eleven points to come Kramer, what kind of track record is that run for anything other than the eggs, another nursing other examples of the poles being not even close. I mean I I'm. Having to be friends with quite a few political pundits, people that have ran campaigns and they were publicans for taking vestments meeting. They were saying it was going to be within two points. I took the older on an over and under ten percent. And I'm getting free steak dinners from people to ran campaigns. The whole even close. You know it's just people are worried about Trump right now. They're spend some things that have happened. You know, the, the second amendment people are little riled up about some things when it comes down to it. I don't think that's gonna make them vote against you. It just isn't going to happen. And I think we're gonna see second term. Yeah. I just don't buy it. I really don't. I don't at all. I don't think that's I know again, is kind of a good chattering class thing. But it's from people who just that's what they do. They chatter. And if you go back to look at the actual track record of the chatter, there's not a lot of success in predicting things accurately. So I just don't buy really don't. I don't think it's a reality at all. And again, Wayne stanchion, I would argue priority was right for, for governor for the Republican nomination and on the ballot was one of the quote unquote gold standard names in North Dakota politics. Okay. And, and Weinstein Jim lost a lot to Doug Burgum, and, and on the on the democratic side, they would say the same about Heidi Heitkamp. Oh, that name lost by lump post? Kevin Kramer, number one and number two, lost hope and before that in a conservative state. I just, you know, I don't think it's going to happen. That doesn't mean. Time to have a good trip over there. Thank you. Thank you very much good talking to Jesse. Good, good question. Bob in Jamestown, you're next. Having a good time over there. You guys have covered the polls enough. I remember. Reagan was behind both times two in one landslide. So we don't have to go into that anymore, but we had some the price of a barrel oil here a few months ago, went from fifty up over to sixty bucks, and our gas prices went way up, and, and we're still lucky run to three dollars a gallon. And now the barrel came down in the other day I was looking at online here doing a little bit with the markets. And I see that price of gasoline wholesale was one sixty. So I roll into Cosco the other day and their two dollars four cents so that buck, sixty dad, the state and federal on forty two cents. You're sitting there to twelve and or tool to, and then I don't know transportation eight cents ten cents a gallon. We've got tank farms right here in Jamestown and we're to sixty seven right now and relatives on Texas that will the reason you guys will gas. That's why North Dakota's you don't have any oil wells. You don't have any refinery was years ago. Well, we do now and. This guy in Bismarck wants to stations here in he's making a lot of money off of local..

"He does he's doing a tunnel and heading North Dakota. Today. What he ran for Senator said, look pledged to do town halls in every county and he's done. Does anybody doubt that level of access to the people why he defeated Heidi Heitkamp by eleven points? Do that. Why would you not take every open mic opportunity? And then getting front of everybody. You do. Unless you're not who you purport to say you are that is. See, here's the deal that's going to sound nasty and horrible and everything else that anybody who's not of the conservative slash public, Wayne. But here's the deal. I'm not saying to me mean I'm saying to say, look, if you're going to run for office in North Dakota as democrat, you're going to need to be a North Dakota Democrat not a Chuck Schumer Nancy Pelosi democrat. Okay. Alon Omar democrat, and in my mind, look, if you want to change my mind about, you know. One payer, single payer healthcare, or pick your issue or that open borders, or whatever it is have a conversation. Let's, let's talk about it. Tell me why I'm wrong. And I'll tell you why. I think you're on and we'll have a civil conversation. But this idea of not engaging with people think differently than you, in my view, is exactly what's wrong. Now what's bizarre to me? In the interview, you're going to hear Senator. Heitkamp is running around the country talking about how Republicans Democrats need to work together. Well, wait a minute. How many Republicans were ignored not even engaged in conversation. In the Senate race. She lost a few months ago. So, you know. I am. I am of the opinion. We are getting too far away from one country mentality. Which is the name of the little effort that she's doing with, with other Democrats than Republicans coming together. I I'm I can see now, I now know what I what I read in the history books, and how civil war happens. You guys feel that way, when you read some of the stuff as social media, and you see how, you know. People get I get or could happen. I really do. I understand. And I've never you know, for the most part, felt physically threatened on any particular situation. But boy gets pretty darn close. And so I don't like that either. I'd love to have a civil conversation about ways in which we're different. But you can't do that by thinking you're white, and the other person's wrong, you can't do that with a huge ego that says you are the end all be all. You know what you heard before the break is. So we have to start there. Let's go to a first time caller one in South Dakota. You're next on what's on your mind. Morning. With. Percent every. October twenty five. What happens if? I think they keep it at twenty five percent. I don't know that they'd go higher. They might. There are all kinds of tariffs. The, the media does a horrible job of actually explaining these things they get wrapped up in the politics. Oh, Trump's doing this at all publicans. Don't like it at the economy's going to take tariffs play very useful part in. How can I say this? Helping people understand that if you want to do business with the United States of America, the greatest country in the face of the earth. There's a premium for the access to our markets. You know what I mean is basically saying if we build a computer, and you build a computer, you're going to build it with, you know? Cheap labor and, and, and no regulations. And we're gonna regulations we're going to have this have good people do this. You can trust us. It's going to be a good product. That comes at a pre that's where terrorists were used usefully at at some point. And I think look, if you're trading with somebody was on par with you. You don't need a tariff President Trump, I think is of the opinion that. The only way to get the message fixed. And let's, let's just I recognize that there's been a lot of messes made by previous administrations. I loved George W Bush, George W Bush was, was in my mind the perfect person the perfect time to replace the Clinton nightmare. Nine eleven couldn't have handled it in my mind better. I think later, things got a little little different a little bit of that big government stuff, creeped in whatever, but as a man as a person. I mean this was a good good person. I mean this guy who called me after my father died. This guy who called me when I was in the hospital. My coaling out, say you're doing okay. There's some goofball talk show hosts North Dakota. You know, he's a good guy. But I'm telling you, he was as much to blame as his father was to blame. Bill Clinton was to blame Barack Obama was to blame them, even heaven forbid, save me Ronald Reagan when it comes to fixing the immigration. So Donald Trump supplying a new tool and right now got Mexico to the table, and they're already saying, okay, here's the deal. We're gonna put our we're going to put our military. The southern border. Where was that idea year ago when this thing was ramping up, not now because tariff read that happens? Maybe this works, maybe this works. I don't know how the movie ends, but I think we gotta try something different one, that's, that's my only on tariffs. I believe I do because. Immigration, illegal immigration. Recognize our country. If we discontinued to kick the can down the road. It'll transform America, not just from the standpoint of okay? I'm not trying to say I don't like anybody who's a different color than me. I'm not saying that at all. As God as my witness in kindergarten, you know, who my buddy was Pedro, Pedro, this little fun, Hispanic, buddy of mine kindergarten was my buddy, you know why. Because all the other kids picked on because he was different. He was my buddy, that's been in my heart since day, one doesn't matter what somebody's color is. We're all God's children. I really believe that every fiber being however, this is the greatest country on the face of the earth. And you can't just say anybody come in anytime, however you want, we can't fix every problem. So I think if we just loud, this onslaught to continue not only what we have a very different country, culturally, and that is an issue. We need to work through. There's no doubt about it. I mean if you're coming here. Speaking English to enter the workforce, extraordinarily important. But I'm talking about what does it do to our public services? What does it do to our communities? What are the cost of things, what about health care, when you don't have the ability to pay? Does that diminish the health care for all I think it does Wanda. Everything we're having. That have the money to do it. We're paying for somebody out. Well, I've just been told one of the first time caller is that correct information? We have this little thing on Fridays where a first time caller guess a free my pillow at least at least one show. Sometimes we do too. But at least one show, can we get you a my pillow? Would you like to sleep on my pillow? All right. Hang on. We need to get your information your Email your phone number Daniels going to get that. And we'll get that out to you. I'm really glad to call today. Thank you. Good conversation on tariffs, because I don't think we talked about that enough. Is there anything else you wanted to say did you? Did you have more to say? Wanda. Okay. Keep listening. We appreciate that and Daniels going to get your information Kenan Ulan Minnesota. What's on your mind? Hey. Comment. Couple of. Enjoyed pillow guarantee you. That's what I called, I spent almost four years in the navy there. The story overseas and I wish I would have had a pillow then one that was the one that we were sleeping on. About the size of the full hand tall and the bunks were, and we couldn't even turn over the slide out. Do you want to sleep on your back or so they can turn over back in? But yeah, I could use the pill then but I member ties several years goal. And so long time you know, kind of watch it advertisements and they were you know. Little. Hasn't. We got to lose. So I got some. I wish them a lot sooner. They really do the trick at the pillow at night. And all I'm I'm out all night long before I usually get up once twice or even three times at night, so kudos. Mike Lindell, and you guys he's a good man. Darn few of us left and joke there. But the, you know, the story by Mike Lindell, and the story by the companies is as good as the product really does. Can I have a quick question for you? So. Like. Do you forget your aircraft carrier when you finally do fall asleep? I can't even imagine that. I mean obviously, if you're bonkers that small in the room is small, I mean, where's, where's the family room aircraft carrier, what ship you onto an aircraft carrier? What was it? Naval destroyer destroyer while. So I mean do do you do. Do you work for dick euless hours? And so there's no time for fun anyway. Or like where do you go to? Chill out. Well, the only time you get the chill out when you're under way. In your bunk probably the ship itself was probably three hundred feet long by maybe forty feet wide. We had probably a little less than maybe three hundred personnel on their boiler tender, so spent sixty hours a day, all what the call is dumb below deck and incredible incredible. We are indebted to you can and all of the veterans of this great country. God bless you. Thanks for the call. Call again and freesheet your service joy that my pillow.

"Station. Komo news one thousand FM, ninety seven seven is Roe versus Wade in danger of being overturned, there's concern following some very restrictive abortion laws in Alabama, and Missouri. ABC's political roundtable, discussed it on this week with George Stephanopoulos this morning. From ABC news this week here. Now she George Stephanopoulos. Alabama make ways near total ban on abortion passed signed into law by their governor stock about that on a roundtable, chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl the democracy for America democratic strategist at Simpson. Chris Christie, former GOP governor jersey now. ABC news contributor and Heidi. Heitkamp serve his democratic Senator from North Dakota now leading one, the one country project focused on rural voters, and John, let's begin this abortion battle the president tweeting on it as well. And he, he says, he's also strongly pro life. You took this out late last night, but also for those three exceptions rape, incest, and protecting life of Maria concern that we saw it from Ronna Romney, as well about Alabama going too far for Republicans will absolutely look the polling for years showing that the majority of Americans support abortion rights, but also support restrictions on abortions. Particularly late term abortion. So the Republicans have been working very hard to portray Democrats as extremists on this who want abortion, also. Circumstances, right? Until the baby is born or even beyond this event, the message and then suddenly Alabama comes around and actually put forward a law that as you saw went so far that Pat Robertson, as opposed to it so, so off masters. The president didn't directly criticize the Alabama law. But that's obviously what use it is kind of an axiom of abortion, politics, whichever party is painted as more extreme in a given circumstance loses on this. And that's the concern now, sure, I think it's, it's clear. The president, if you're the governor of Alabama, witnessed signed that, Bill, he's been really considered he stand up and fight it. I guess is the question the way you fight it as governor for comes to test because you veto it, and I think he would've veto this Bill because it didn't contain this three exceptions..

"Good to be spending this time with you each and everyone of you. We always look forward to it. The Democrats have a plan and their plan is to. Come to you. And explain to you. Why it is you can't vote for Trump? And I know it sounds crazy. I know what you're doing. I believe me. I know I know how you feel about this. But the reality is they're going to explain you where your mind is wrong, and they're gonna get your mind. Right. Heidi Heitkamp, and Joe Donnelly to Democrats lost in the two thousand eighteen midterms are spearheading this effort, they're gonna they're gonna cover. They're gonna talk to you in language. You can understand terms. You can understand the small words they're gonna use big numbers and charts and they're going to explain to you. Why socialism is your friend? You know, they come out just start stripping Ola. Let me talk politics. I like to get into the naked truth of politics. What do you say the three of us just get naked and beliving room here? Take off those fruit of let me just let me just take off these clothes. And if you don't mind, I'm gonna fry some bacon while on that. Lord, some baking I said you ever fry bacon without a shirt on looks like freckles. Referred baking on your chest. Jeez. Dan. Ramona helped me, Dan, what's happening. Breath. Thanks for taking my call. It sounds to me like Kevin his own radio show. That was terrific. Indeed going on. You know, count me among those those Republicans who are cleaning to our guns in our bibles. And this is why this is why today the Serbians are commemorating a genocide committed on them by the Turks back around the turn of the century. This is the chronology of it. The Turks did not like the serpent's they had they took away all their guns right from the Serbians. And then they committed genocide and murdered a hundred and four thousand Serbian that's not speculation. That's history. And if I had the opportunity to talk to one of these people come into my door to get to talk to camel or vote for camera Harris, right? I would share with them that history. And maybe I turn them into a Trump vote. You might actually that might be that might be the case that might actually work remember? Yeah. It was yesterday or two days ago was the Armenian genocide anniversary. And it was a couple hundred thousand people marched in LA every every year, they do it in Los Angeles. And it's the Armenians commemorating or remembering what happened to them. And it's so crazy because so many American politicians avoid that issue. Like, it's the plague, and it's crazy because you are means the Armenians are among the oldest Christian communities and nations in the world. Like, they are first century. They are. Oh, jeez. Man when it comes to when it comes to. And I mean that a good way when it comes to faith and American politicians don't have acknowledged that. It's like don't talk about that. Don't talk about the fact that like a million people got killed in Armenian genocide by the Turks why we should always remember these atrocities, regardless of who perpetrates them. I mean heaven knows got a lot of problems out there. I think what you do is. I think what you do is you play some you play devil went down to Georgia by Charlie Daniels and a Rottweiler barkin, and maybe some gunfire in the background. And these people will not ring your doorbell twice. They can wire it to your doorbell. So that when they ring it that you're hearing the devil went down to Georgia and a Rottweiler barking and a gunshot, and if you can get the wafting smell of steak, grilling, they will run crying at hide in their Prius. It's gonna be great because they're going to show up at your house. Maybe six.

That are running there. Just driving me crazy. I mean banning skyscrapers in the Boston bomber gets to vote and free college for a limited last without a guy who really honest to goodness entertaining. So okay. So we'll put you down as a maybe on by known. I'm going to put you in your persuadable on by near your maybe right? That's crazy. Did you see just to tie into this? I've been I've been having a great deal of fun with with the listening audience about this and Email is so you have now a phenomenon where in Heidi Heitkamp and Joe Donnelly, former senators Democrats each Indiana and North Dakota. They are going to help get these Democrats one of them elected to be president because they're going to go out. And they're going to explain to these people like Jane Goodall would explain the wild. They're going to explain to these people how they go about talking to the Trumpers. Roger my God is this is this a license to print money for us or what? Well, it is because let's start with the obvious Idei champ. Joe Donnelly were both defeated. Just and they did represent, you know, and they were defeated in rural areas because they couldn't talk to the Trump people. Now, they're going to advise the Democrats on how to talk Trump. I, you know, the irony is just amazing. But they what are you going to say rural people when you know, this actually I've been list, I just gave it was just the last couple of days skyscrapers. Yeah. Boston bomber gets to vote. Yes. Pre-college role. And now we now know as far as gifts. I I mean the. After the video came out, right? He was he commented, and they know what do you want to do Joe? And he says, well, I wanna make America straight again. Yes. He said that. Yes. And I went, you know, aside from Berwick Trump mic. I mean. Obviously, the the Indianapolis mayor is not going to be his second choice. Vice president. But anyway. Wanna make America straight? The you mentioned a Republican saying that. Wait a minute. The holocaust Roger this is subliminal. Hold on. He's going back to the deepest roots of the Democratic Party because maga- is making America great again, what is making America straight again. The other thing I'll come. To put them in chain against. Oh my gosh. Oh, yeah. Some great stuff. Twenty call quote, folks, I can tell you I've known eight presidents three of them intimately. What do you say to stuff like that? He's twenty twelve also said I promise you the president has a big stick. I promise you. Oh, and then, you know, I think you and I had worked with this should have two thousand eight Joe Biden said is this letter word jobs. Yes. Exactly. S john's. Well, he also he also declared Raj that ObamaCare was a be FDA. If we were called. Turns out he was right about that. Now, he also said I've got a couple of years so great in two thousand eight he said what the stock market crash Franklin Roosevelt gun on television. Didn't just talk about the you know, the look. Look what happened. The market crash in nineteen twenty nine Roosevelt wasn't the president. And there wasn't TV. Wow. Now. Okay. Now, I'm gonna play Biden advocate for you for a quick second with you for a second. Okay. You yourself said a couple of days ago, he would potentially be a formidable because he's such an institutional his his his knowledge of DC. Like, I think you said he served with guys like John Dingle father guys who are in there since the twenties and thirties when he came to congress, and what's interesting about him is he's he's the guy who's been closest to three quasi impeachments. He he was there for Nixon. He was there for Clinton. And he was there potentially go to target Trump. And he's a guy who's got. He's got some knowledge, Raj. It does have an institutional memory. And. I think it's going to appeal to to to people like camping, right? And Joe Donnelly who are saying, wait a minute. If you just become an urban crazy leftist minority only in the guise of diversity whites. Need not attend kind of party. You're not gonna make it in twenty twenty. In fact, these guys Heidi Heitkamp enjoy Donald did a study. And they said, even if you reach out and do everything you can with the party, you know, the lurching to the left like this lose twenty twenty that was honestly their report to the Democratic National Committee, which is a a real, I I open, you know, the the the the Cossio Cortez contingency, Omar contingency is gonna lose the Democrats big time in twenty twenty. Now, here's one other element that I think we ought to consider in all seriousness. He's he's in a really tough position when he fights on that stage. And I'll I'll tell you why. When Donald Trump ran successfully start. In two thousand fifteen in two thousand sixteen he gets on the debate stage, and he thought nothing of punching rhetorically speaking punching Jeb Bush, right in the teeth telling him, he was energy punching Carly Fiorina making remarks about the way, she looked and punch and Rubio and crew, you know, the whole list of people he would say to rand Paul while you're moving further and further off the stage every time we have a debate rent. I mean, he was Trump went in and punched him all right in right in the smush, Joe Biden is restricted by the identity politics of this. What's he going to say to Buddha judge? What's he going to say to camera Harris to Cory Booker because he he has to measure his punches Raj against the backdrop of identity politics. That is a very fine line between being anti gay anti anti-black anti-woman. He's he's in a tough spot about the only person you can go after his. Bernie sanders. Maybe. Yeah. With a grumpy old grumpy old, man. Equal. So. I I think you've made a really important point actually because what is by doing the debate. Yeah. I mean, you know, what is this punchline? I'm twice as old as you are. And I mean what what does he say to people? And he sure not going to be able to pull the Trump on those guys because he is constrained by the Democratic Party of inclusion and diversity and respect, and blah, blah, blah for everybody under any circumstance doing anything. And so, you know, I I don't know what his pitch is going to be make America straight again. Apparently, he's not going to NASA Massa that is tough. That is. We. I also think it's not beyond him to either get inappropriately close to somebody physically. You know in the debate. Just because that's how he is. It's always wired or order drop a Honey on somebody when he's trying to explain a policy like it's it's just gonna come out of his mouth, Raj. And now, we're seeing something cassia and the New York Times they're saying that Joe Biden called Anita hill ahead of the announcement. He said to hill. I'm sorry. And then he'll turned around and basically said yet too late too little sorry, bud. Yeah. It's gonna be tough. And of course, Clarence Thomas did a member Brent biography. And in in that he said just guy Biden did no favors for me. I mean, it was a it was a lynching. Yep. So by getting it from both sides on the on the Anita hill Clarence Thomas thing, and I think he's going to. And I think this is where you're going with your comment. He's going to get it from both sides on on everything for sure, I mean, the metoo movement thing and everything else he's going to face on that on that stage. It's you know, he he acts like a guy who had the the the cultural sensitivities in the nineteen fifties. And and still has them he's going to get Kate Smith. I mean to be I mean. So all right. Let's let's move into the state of California where we are pushing some pretty crazy stuff. There's a Bill moving throughout the past the Senate. It's now moving into the assembly that will end willful defiance suspensions for students in school. Right. So so the kids are going to be free to just be absolute maniacs without any potential for punishment. This to me looks like a recipe for disaster. How do you read this? Well, I wouldn't be a teacher in California schools if this passes that's for sure I want to bring up a name. We haven't talked about Wilde Nickolas cruise. Nncholas crews shut up a bunch of people at Marjory stoneman Douglas high school in Florida, right? He was in a diversion program that the Obama administration was urging schools to do that said, you know, you gotta understand these kids who act out you got to understand the ones that willfully disrupt your school, your classroom, your everyone else's experience. You got to understand. They've gotta be counseled. They've gotta be no they don't because they're bad people and they've got to be treated as bad people because they're the one percent or the two percent of your school. That's going to keep ninety eight percent for learning. Anything? Now, that's you know, the comedy downsizing sounds like the nineteen fifties. I mean, it sounds like, but here's the the the truth about this is that this all started because you don't wanna be racist. I mean, let's let's be clear about this. This Bill comes from a motivation. That says this is specifically the the the suspension and expel and expelling of kids from public schools for willful disruptions is really aimed at African Americans, and it is a willful disruption. Any kind of you know, the wearing the wrong coat doing et cetera et cetera. And we've got it. We can't be racist in the state of California. Well, it turns out if you talked to teachers who are actually going to talk to you. And I was looking at the comments of his story, by the way from teachers. Yes, who said, hey, you know, I was a teacher. I don't care about the statistics. The color of their skin ninety percent of the behavioral issues that I had with my students were with African American students students that would this is this is a man who worked in the public schools in LA, and he says ninety percent of the behavioral issues with my African American students physically threatened me assault me throw racial slurs. Start arguments refused to leave the classroom when they were cheating on tests ninety percent. And he said it wasn't the color of their skin. It was just their actions. And if we don't punish bad actions. What else but chaos is going to result? It's interesting because if you hamstring the teachers, I was looking over a few blogs, blogs that education teachers are saying, well, what what what I just do when things get violent and out of control in my room is I pick up my cell phone, and I dialed the three magic digits nine one one, and I call the cops and a now I don't have to do with the administrators because the cops are rolling in with the lights and the sirens to take this kid into custody because he's threatening the safety and wellbeing of other kids suspension verdict. Yeah. Arrests substitute. Yeah. So if that's what teachers have to decay magic teachers have to do you mentioned the time. It would take that day away from the less. Everyone else in the class one to one involved in it. It's just can you imagine being a teach other than a complete leftist by you, log in there to propaganda guys the student, otherwise if you just want to be a regular old teacher, exposing kids to to to thoughts and and history geography, hats and all the rest of it. Why would anybody do it kinds of laws are so last question here because we had about like ninety seconds left? But. The logical question. What the hell's the teacher's union because why wouldn't the union point intervene, ROY? What are they doing? They're so cowed by this. You know, racism, although Jerry Brown was it now veto the same Bill years ago when he was governor and say, hey, we don't need this. What we need is the students to be teachers administrators to take this problem on head on. And if there's a racial voted to deal with it and deal with it in your local schools, you know, Jerry Brown lot lot of criticism, but Fisher he was dead on that one. He was also eighty one years old he's from a different world. I mean, let's be honest Newsom is totally different animal. Well, and that's you know, that's really what's going to happen here. A public school system is going to collapse and chaos. What you're basically saying here is any willful disobedience fine. Whatever your, that's your culture. That's cool. And it's just going to completely destroy any semblance of learning. Yeah. Oh, this is I want to stay on this. I had I had a call. Our say, hey, we need to find a conservative judge to bring this in front of to get a teacher that's been quote harmed or a student. That's been quote harmed by this once it becomes law, and we need to we need to get this thing in in in the federal courts. Well, like to do that. But the nights circuit. Don't wanna appeal in that way. But yeah, no something has to be done because I can't believe that parents actually, this is a good idea. Like can't believe our teachers. Yeah. Bring back the paddling, though, never mind. Well, that's for Saturday night. All right, right. Yes. America's straight again applied and we're gonna make some hats. We gotta make some hats, right? It's a great power. It's terrible politics. And. To a restaurant with that. All right. I think we've done about all we can do have a wonderful night to take Hitchcock at the five and five eight hundred seven sixty KFI AM, seven sixty and breaking news, Jim Sharpe. Vets.

No, he's not fit to be president. How about you? Yeah. I mean, again, I I don't know if this stuff complete disqualifies people, I mean, I don't know the context of those words or whatnot. Clearly sounds very inappropriate there. We played some video last night. I mentioned this yesterday. If you wanna go check out just an unbelievable Twitter threat that I put together creepy uncle Joe. I mean, he's eighteen and say this out loud, but he's got his hands on young girls in places that it shouldn't be you can see these doing things he shouldn't be doing it for Heidi. Heitkamp to go on a national television show on Sunday and backup Biden statement about how he feels like he's never done anything inappropriate. There are tens if not twenty if not fifty videos out the demonstrate that he is clearly I mean, I don't know about you you go around sniffing people's hair. I don't know. And by the way, his statement, basically said he sniffs hair affectionate person, and I've given lots of hugs, and you know, basically owning it which is just bizarre. What's interesting? About this to me is one thing. The contrast how Heidi Heitkamp and the Democrats tree Joe Biden over this versus how they judge cavenaugh. Right. Very interesting. He is accused believed, and there was no video there. There were you know, decades old allegations these people. Laura's says, hey, this doesn't raise the level of to assault the allegations against.

"I don't think anything prevents them. They brought these charges. It's a major public case in which major resources where expanded and I would agree with the mayor here. It makes no sense. To me. You have an obligation when you represent the public to explain what you're doing. They made a decision to bring those charges, and they made a decision to make those charges public than they need to describe why they decided to go the other way, ROY they didn't do that. And I think that leaves the public hanging gets to one of the reasons I'm running for president. I think we need people to understand what you're gonna do. Stop the chaos and just be clear with people and get things done whether it's about when you bring a criminal charge or whether it's about getting an infrastructure plan or making sure people have their healthcare. Let's be honest with people look them in the I told them what you're going to do. That's what I've done my whole life, right? Senator Amy klobuchar. Thank you for joining us on this week. Thank you. I always say they say the elite the elite, I'm not, well, I have a better education than that. I'm smarter than them. I went to the best schools. They did. Much more beautiful house much more beautiful apartment. Much more beautiful everything. And I'm president. And they're not right. Or it on that note was bringing the roundtable. Jonathan swan national political reporter for axios. I used to Roscoe White House reporter for National Public Radio. David bossy citizens United president and former Trump deputy campaign manager also co author of Trump's enemies how the deep state is undermining the presidency and Heidi Heitkamp, former democratic Senator from North Dakota. Alright Dave me start with you traveled with the president to Grand Rapids you flew on Air Force One. As a matter of fact, we have a picture of you with him backstage. I'm a little confused is does he feel vindicated or does he feel hell bent on revenge because I'm kind of hearing both things from him. We'll both things can be true. Right. He feels completely vindicated that after two years of lies by the mainstream media by the Democrats in congress that he has been completely exonerated from this fake Russian hoax investigation, which all Americans now know was not true. So the president wants to. Move on on policy, but he also wants to make sure that the important questions get answered and that is what did Barack Obama? No. And when did he know it what was Clapper and Brennan and Komi and McCabe and the rest of the cabal within the FBI what what did they do with this fake Russian dossier? How did it get to the FBI who paid for it? We all know the answers to some of these questions, and I think those are the important ones..

But I think that's flipped now for twenty twenty the Republicans have to in the Senate or in. Yeah. Do you think we would take back the Senate? I think it gets harder in the Senate. And I think you see it in like a mccaskill and Heidi Heitkamp like you just can't be. It's in a in states that are becoming increasingly moderate or leaning Republican. It's really hard for Democrats to make a play in those states. Yeah. And. I don't know how that doesn't. I don't see that changing in the next two years because. I think you would have to focus that energy and no more traditionally midwestern stay like, Ohio where it's like a democrat or Republican right now. And I don't even know if that would work there. Yeah. Yeah. Because also like those kinds of purple states tend to like that they have one in one. Yeah. So because it makes makes you purple as it makes you purple. Yeah.

"Oh three, but the comments going to Facebook or fabulous. They are fantastic. But occasionally, you know, if you're a Facebook person somebody tags you on something. So they'll make a point either tag you for you to see something or tag you to say take that right? And so I got I got sucked into a conversation about I forget what. And the person was. Someone who had been part of the Heidi Heitkamp campaign and someone that had been a part of the effort to gather names from social media of sexual assault victims. Who were publicly exposed by Senator Heidi Heitkamp? I don't know about you. But I've not heard any resolution to that. I've not heard about meetings. I know that's Senator cap was asked have you talked to these people late in the campaign, and she said. We can't get a hold of or we're having trouble reaching them. So I I don't know if she was looking at the phone book or if she was. Anyway, we're kind of a lame excuse. So this particular person, you know, that was being snarky. I said, you know, maybe you should spend your time sort of trying to get the resolution on those sexual assault victims, which I look whatever your political viewpoint and even Heitkamp actually decided after three years of stonewalling us to come on the radio, and I apologize for it. That's how bad it was. She had to come talk to us and the great unwashed that were the people who voted not for her. But for somebody else because she chose to ignore them for six years in the Senate and three years on this program. How could you not too horrible for these people? So I told this person, you know. Maybe worry about that. So someone Caitlyn McDonald? Caitlyn McDonnell town. I don't know. Sometimes when you find out who people are you kind of understand why they're real well. Oh, she is. Okay. All right. And so. The kind of person that likes Elizabeth Warren has this all we'll say anyway. So the Elizabeth Warren fan Kaelin McConnell says Scott Hannan. What campaign did was wrong a terrible and a men's are in order. And there have been multiple apologies, but more should be done. But how dare you pretend to give to swear word about sexual assault victims when you support Trump and his Detrick decades lawn. On the record repulsive in predatory language and actions. Bill clinton. Well, right. I mean, I was a favourite tactic of the hard left. They love that. See they got. When it comes to Clinton and what he did right in the White House. We have a more recent example, Brett camera. Remember his accusers? I believe her believe or we'd hashtags out. I believe her okay? Accuser of the Lieutenant governor of Virginia. Oh, consensual. Does. I mean, it's disgusting. It's absolutely disgusting. It's disgusting to try and throw that. So and then she keeps going, and of course, the Catholic church in their ongoing massive systematic sexual abuse ring.

Takeaways from the Midterm Election
"Here's the Democrats got control of the house of representatives. And that's a win for the Democrats. The Republicans gained seats in the United States Senate could be as many as fifty five that is also a win for the Republicans and a win for the president because he ultimate firewall in. Any of these issues is the United States Senate? That's the cooling off point. They used to call it. And that's how I view it. So the Democrats won the house the state wide races tended to go to the Republicans. The Democrats picked up some governorships as well. And the twenty twenty campaign starts, that's how I view, but I'm gonna I'm gonna go right around the horn here and kind of get everybody's you'll start with. What is your takeaway from last night number one? The Republicans gained seats in the Senate. What does that mean, it means that judicial? Appointments will move forward under this administration. In other words, the president will be able to appoint and confirm judges who believe in the rule of law believe in the constitution that will indeed be his enduring legacy. Number two. There's a challenge that awaits democratic leadership in the house will they work with the president on bipartisan issues, which advance the interest of working and middle class Americans. Or will they focus on opposition? And investigations that question is yet to be answered. Well, and also Jay you're going around the horn, if a president and the president can can issue executive orders, and they can be changed by the next president legislation enacted by congress can also be changed. But judges have lifetime influence over the United States of America. He already has eighty four judges that have been approved during his first two years. A lot more needs to be approved. If you had to have one chamber of the congress that you have control over it needs to be the Senate. He did that and the Republicans have actually increased their majority in the Senate that will be the most significant thing to ensure an effective presidency of the next two years. So Jordan Republicans beat Bill Nelson. Republicans beat Joe Donnelly, they beat Claire mccaskill they beat Heidi. Heitkamp might be Jon tester. That race is still ten percent out tester has a thousand volt leader. So I mean, so again, those four all voted against Brett caviar all four try to play to the middle and try to act like moderates. And they're the people there states have said, no, we don't buy that. And by the way, your votes show, it clever can even tried to say, I'm not one of those crazy Democrats Sopher. She votes always against always against everything that would be considered even moderately conservative. So I think again, it was a great night's statewide for governor a for a lot of governors races. Well, Democrats did well and some other governors racist. But I will say that there's still more Republican governors in the country twenty-seven, then there are democrat governors. So you have a state advantage there of who is leading or states. It is Republican governors. I think the house. Yes, it could it could have gone better for Republicans. I think the president's right? There are a lot of Republicans that are going home that never fully embraced President Trump. And the kind of cleared them out of the house, and these are all up for real unlike the Senate these are all up for reelection in twenty twenty when President Trump is back on the fan Bennett. So legislation. It was always going to be partisan like the tax cuts. It was important to get that done in the first two years. They did it. Now, they're going to have to shift on legislation to things that are more bipartisan. I think the president's well positioned to do that the two additional items think about how much easier it would be to fill a supreme court vacancy with fifty four or fifty five Senate seats than with fifty one in the final point. I would make the most important power for continuing your draw down the regulatory burden on US companies that exist

"Tune into the live blog because I live log is beginning at ten AM. All right. Is there anything else we're watching in that eight o'clock hour? Yeah. Quite a lot three of the four biggest tipping point states in the Senate at least some of their polls are gonna start to close at eight o'clock. So that would be North Dakota and Missouri, which are to basically, probably the two most days. Danger democratic incumbents. So if Democrats can hold onto those especially Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota who has the worst odds one in four the last time, I checked Democrats are holding onto those then we might be in for an interesting night. In terms of Democrats may be picking up the Senate. But if their chances are gonna stop they'll probably stop here with those two states, and then you have to potential democratic pickup opportunities in Tennessee. And of course, Texas, so you're gonna start to see results from the Ted Cruz bit or work race, which I know a lot of our readers are following which I think that race also determines control of the house if I'm not right? Exactly. And who wins the presidency twenty twenty twenty. Okay, got it. So that will definitely be a race that people want to keep their eyes on eight thirty. It's lonely Arkansas only one St.. Yeah. Sorry, Arkansas, you the fact that you're the only state that has thirty poll closing time meant that. I had to write about you. But I wouldn't have otherwise, so congratulations. I guess there are no competitive races. In arkansas. The Arkansas second is the race that some people thought especially early on in the cycle might be. Interesting. It's the bluest relative term Louis district in Arkansas. But that campaign that's Clark Tucker versus French hill hasn't really caught fire. So if Democrats look like they're gonna pick that up, then it's gonna be a really good night. But I think by this point of the night, we're gonna know whether it's a good night for them. All right next up is the nine o'clock hour when we may really start to get a good look at how things are shaping up in the house..

"Gravity and Tennessee asserting itself. Bredesen's would rather see it three than fourteen obviously, but it's still Tennessee. But you know, Amy, this was never fourteen point race. Most like me. Sometimes those polls just happen. You go into the field, you get certain as you know, better than anybody. But this was never a fourteen point race Bredesen's. One of the most popular governors even retired governors and all of America. This guy sitting in the sixties. Chances are good. This one's going to be tight to the end, right? It could be, but I do agree with what Steve saying. It does seem like in so many of these Senate races where it looked like Democrats Mavis shot to pick off some of these very red states either because they had a fantastic candidate or in a place like Arizona where it looked like maybe the Republicans would get into really nasty primary fight that didn't happen. And what we're seeing is the political gravity start to come into play here that red states are behaving like red states, and blue states are behaving like blue states. So what it seems like we're where we are right now. Two weeks before the election is that that the Senate map and the house map both seemed to be sort of closing in which is the ceiling now for democratic. Gaines seems to be dropping and you're right. I don't know if this is about this is cavenaugh that just push this up, whether this was going to happen anyway coming into Tober, but I do think that we are looking at a map now for Democrats, that's looking a lot tougher in the Senate which most likely was always going to be in less something good happened. But it's something definitely bad happened yesterday for Democrats, North Dakota and just curious what you all think about Heidi Heitkamp who's already on the defensive report that she used sexual assault survivors and her campaign ads without getting their permission. I'm wondering if that's all racist Democrats should just write off at this point..
Talk of entitlement reform takes over as midterms near
"There were not politically, correct. But they've done what needed to be done in order to unleash the animal spirits. Alan greenspan's. Alan Greenspan, Stephanie. It's pretty tough to argue with him. Are you sure he said he loves the Trump tax cuts or you gotta sit there constructive. Now. He loved he loved it. They were politically incorrect. Now, what he doesn't love is that we haven't done entitlement reform to accompany them. I wanna you know, it's coming to that. But he loves the Trump tax cuts one of the things about entitlement reform that we need is it surprises me the young people. Don't get more engaged on the entitlement reform ya you know, they sort of latch onto issues that are very very popular in the news. Entitlement reform or something I think people should really care about. Listen, the issue with the tax cut is it's a clear positive for corporate America. The tax code as it was far too complicated. But the amount of taxes that they cut you could ask Jamie Dimon. He will say, listen, I'm glad we got the tax cut. We didn't need it to be as much as it is because we are facing a massive deficit, and as far as the tax cut goes we're seeing corporations do so well two weeks ago. I the business council summit there hasn't been a hundred fortune five hundred there tickled pink, and they're saying they're spending there investing hiring and even without the tax cuts. Deregulation has been a huge positive for corporate America because remember in the Obama administration. It was not a pro business administration. And even if companies weren't faced with new taxes, the threat of regulations of threat more could be coming down the pike was preventing companies from spending. You're definitely seeing corporate America in a very good place book at the stock market one of the reasons the stock market is doing so. Well, suddenly. Corporations have twice as much cash on the books. So it is a positive obviously have a very tight labor market time to see wages push up more than they have this far. So Stephanie role year in the second bluest bubble in America. I always think that silicon valley's a bluer bubble the Manhattan, but I just had Marsha Blackburn on she's had a nineteen point swing in her direction over two weeks, Heidi Heitkamp has fallen apart. And she did a pratfall releasing the name of abuse survivors against their will yesterday that is blowing up. You've got mic. Sally surging ahead of cinema. Do you sense that the blue tide is a thing of the past? And that in fact, we're looking at it read time, I've talked about this a lot. I've never seen a massive Blue Wave coming thing that distresses me isn't are we going massive, bluer massive read the thing that distresses me is the hollowing out of the center on both sides. That is what I think is the most concerning and I think we're seeing it in both parties. Did you read David Brooks piece yesterday about the eight percent on the left? China today. Oh, are you really? Because that is that's the most interesting thing. But the noise comes from those two groups, that's the note, and by the way, our cable channels both left and right that noise. I don't know how we're ever going to break out of this you you are one hundred percent, correct. On a us. An example for you on Monday when I woke up I wasn't on TV. I heard what not the media thought of what Hillary Clinton said on Monday on Sunday about her husband, and Monica Lewinsky. Okay, saying it was not an abusive power. So I said via Twitter take something clear what the president of the United States has a sexual encounter with an intern. It doesn't matter how she behaved, blah, blah, blah. That's an abusive pallet. I'm not saying I'm not saying it's a soft. It is an abuse of power. When I tell you, Hugh, I got a nihil lead on Twitter, and I should hold on a second. Because of course, I've wanted what about Trump what about companies both things can be true abuse. Power is not unique to one industry wants sport, one one nation or one political party. But the tribalism we are seeing the absolute forgiveness of one side and an assault of another. Stop. It's unreasonable. It is going to be very difficult to break away from the profit motive of super serving the six in the eight percent. But I'm glad you're doing the David. That's what that's why I watched up and he going do the David Brooks. Brooks column is the smartest thing I've read in ages. Hey, man payments. Definitely real good to talk to you s rule on Twitter American, of course on MSNBC. Don't go anywhere. I'm coming right back America time to keep talking about these midterms. The red tide is coming everything

"It has a huge effect on the people in that state, but it it's sort of like if you are in California and you're not someone who's focused on redistricting like, why should you care about who the governor of Ohio is? We're going to tell you the answer that question, but just generally it's not intuitively obvious to people for the same reason that if you are in California, you care passionately whether Heidi Heitkamp Windsor race or a rogue wins that race because you. You have a stake in the Democrats taking the Senate, the democratic in the house. You don't really have any. You don't feel like you have an intuitive stake in whether Democrats have more governorships or not. Right. But you do. Huge stake people. Why? So why would we winning these races zone important? What a what a Democrats get out of got a winning a bunch of governors races. I think you can divide it along three lines line. One is redistricting. These are the governorships it will be in place that will draw the lines and the house races after the twenty twenty cents us. Losing all the governorships in two thousand ten has crushed us for a decade and so is incredibly important that we have democratic every ensure that there is not ridiculous partisan meddling in the elections. So that's one two is it is incredibly important to have governorships when it comes to the presidential election. Now you and I know this from being on the two thousand eight, two thousand twelve campaign in two thousand eight. We had a pretty decent number of democrat governors, and we had significant early voting in Ohio, Iowa states like that by two thousand and twelve Republicans and taking those seats in. Dramatically cut back on access to the polls for all voters, but with a particular target against democratic voters voters of color. And so if we're able to get the Ohio governorship, that Wisconsin governorship, the Iowa governorship, that Florida all of them that will have a dramatic difference of you will least Libby able to level the playing field and fight back against Republican, voter suppression, efforts. You think about the difference between two thousand eight and two thousand sixteen in Wisconsin state that Obama won by double digits, and then Hillary Clinton lost a huge factor in that among many other factors is the tremendous level of suppression, including very onerous, voter ID wall that Scott Walker put in place. And so a democratic governor would have detention undo that before the twenty twenty election. Yeah..

"I mean, if you're a democratic candidate, you know, you're you're, you're Barack Obama. You're running in North Dakota. It's a race. It's not going to be all that close. You're not gonna lose in the end. It's probably still nice to get really huge concentrations of democratic votes in majority native American parts of the state. But if you're Heidi Heitkamp and you know, it's not going to be a blow out, you're running a race that is close that you might actually have a chance to win if you are in a race that is as tight as that Senate race was in two thousand twelve, those couple of deep, deep, deep, blue counties. Those aren't just nice. Those are just heartwarming. That's how you win, right? It's a state wide race. You get votes wherever you can chase them all across the street. You try to appeal to as wide a group of North Dakota's as you can. But in particular, it's absolutely crucial in a close race that you turn out the voters who you know are going to vote for you an incredibly strong concentrations, right? If there's any place in your state, you're. The democrat candidate. I don't care who you are. If there's some place in your state where you know you're going to get more than seventy percent of the vote in that county, you have to turn out the voters in that county. And Heidi Heitkamp did in two thousand twelve and strong native American support for Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota is a big reason why right now there's a democratic held US Senate seat from that red state. And the closeness of Heitkamp's last race. The crucial support that she got from eight of American voters that did not escape notice among Republicans and in particular among Republicans who are now making decisions about who's gonna be allowed to vote this next time and who might find it exceedingly difficult to vote this next time. And you may be noticing a sort of theme these days in the news, right? We're twenty two days out from the midterm elections. As of right now, late last week, we reported a story out of Waller county, Texas. Waller county is a county that's about seventy percent white, but it's also home to a historically black college purview AM where the student body is over eighty percent black. Under constitutional law under crystal clear supreme court precedent college. Students are allowed to vote wherever they live, which includes if they live at college prairie view, am. Students can vote in Waller county, Texas. Nevertheless, Waller county Texas keeps coming up with new ways to try to keep students at that college from voting new hurdles, new obstacles for those students to make it harder for them to vote over decades students at purview in that had to fight for their right to vote fight for their ability to vote year after year. Election after election after election after election this year, that perennial fight incredibly included this year. The county arresting the field director for a local democratic congressional candidate. When that field director went to the Waller county courthouse to hand over a letter advocating for the voting rights of the students at that college that they should be allowed to vote without hassle. They arrested the guy after he after the officers asked him what the party. Affiliation was of his candidate. He told them democrat, they arrested him. We told that story here on the show last week. Then Friday night after much gnashing of teeth and renting of garments Friday night, the Texas secretary of state local county officials finally announced the okay, okay. The students at prairie view AM will be allowed to vote this year like everybody else, no strings attached, no extra hurdles, no supplemental paperwork that they have to fill out to satisfy the county that they are indeed allowed to vote. So we reported on that fight and that win in that fight. Last week. We've also been reporting over the last few days on the situation in the great state of Georgia where the Republican secretary of state amend named Brian Kemp has made it his mission to rip up the voter rolls as aggressively as possible over the last few years in in preparation for his own election campaign for governor this year for context here the last.
"heidi heitkamp" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"But in that same poll the majority of voters in North Dakota support cavenaugh sixty one twenty-seven. The question for you. Cornell is how much. Does that one vote matter if you're Heidi Heitkamp or Joe Manchin or someone else like that? I think I think you know to the point made earlier, this is not a typical issue that is fired up Democrats in sort of the base of the party. We that's changed and you're seeing Democrats Justice fired up about about about a supreme court fight as the base of the Republican party, and you're and you're saying, I think, is really dangerous for any democrat, that's going to vote four cavenaugh. With the base of the base of the party. I think there will be backlash and it price to pay in the ways this time around that we have not typically seen. Democrats make make their members pay for for supreme court fight. This is something that is visceral and we're seeing from the qualitative, you know, women are feel passionate about in a way that that they typically on the democrat side do not. And I think it's, I think it's problematic for any democrat Senator who votes were cabinet, right? One of the big stories of this. This election season so far has been the gender gap gab. No one's ever seen anything quite like it in terms of how big it has gotten. This is the sort of generic house race, polling that has fifty eight percent supporting Democrats, fifty eight percent of women thirty five percent supporting Republicans at twenty three point gap keeps growing notch by notch if I'm not mistaken. Yeah. And I mean, you really are seeing this phenomenal gap opening and at the same time, something that's very notable to me is that it really still. Well is very polarized in that women on the Republican side are buying large, not reacting the same way that women on the democratic side are. So it's still something where on almost every issue you can say, okay, there's a gender gap. There's a racial gap. There's a gap, but it's going to always be second to the polarization, but obviously that's still really informing the way that people are responded to raise the put on the polarization of it. But one of the things that I think you should also is interesting. We saw this in two thousand six as well. As is that parts of the Republican identification is shrinking and shrinking is women are begin Bari sold. So those are are Republicans are really in the Republican. Yeah. So they're no longer identifying so they moved to independence. So that accounts for some of the kind of lockstep you see in that Republican polling Cornell Belcher an Oriole Edwards Levy. Thank you both for joining us that does it.
Kavanaugh tells senators he will not withdraw nomination
"Whatever she has to say, let him say what he has to say. And at the end, the the senators will make a choice, President Trump laying out the basics for Thursday. Senate Judiciary committee hearing judge Brad Kavanagh on his accuser, Christine, Blasi Ford will testify senators. Let's get the latest now from ABC's. Karen Travers from the White House. Good morning. Karen, good morning. So. This all got pretty much finalized yesterday. Didn't it with her attorneys weighing in? Yeah. You know, the details are that'll be ten AM eastern time on Thursday, she'll testify first Cavanaugh would go after that. She is requested in her lawyers have requested that the committee. Call other witnesses, including Mark judge the man who she says was present for this who he has no recollection of it. It doesn't look like that's going to happen. The Republican committee members have certainly made clear the moving forward with these two witnesses the other issue that is unresolved from the Christine Blasi Ford end of things is whether or not it will be the Republican senators asking the questions of her all of them are male. Her lawyers have said that they believed that the senators have been dismissive of her story, and they want them to ask the questions, but there certainly been rumblings of outside counsel coming in to do it instead of them. Yeah. That's interesting chess match because I would have thought she would have wanted. Maybe what they offered a female attorney on the Senate side to question. But she says, no, she wants those senators to ask Kansas more complicated. Now in light of this. Accusation from Denver Ramirez who has Colorado ties. Yeah, it is in some ways because you have Diane Feinstein the ranking democrat on the Senate Judiciary committee calling for an immediate postponement of any further proceedings as she puts it related to the nomination of Brett Cavanaugh that could of course, include Thursdays, very intimidated testimony from Christine Blasi Ford and Cavanaugh himself. She is asking that this new allegation. Brought by Deborah Ramirez. Published yesterday in the New Yorker be referred to the FBI for investigation. They also the Democrats have been pushing for that for Christine Blasi Ford's allegation and the Republicans. I have not made those same calls. We know. Of course, the president has said he's not asking the FBI to do that. He thinks that it's just not what they're going to be moving forward on. Do you get a sense of if this accuser, the first accuser testified today, which way this the Senate panel would go I can't say at this point? I think a lot of very key votes are holding things close to the vest till they see exactly what she said. Says even the president last week was saying, you know, if she makes a credible case he would have to make a decision that was certainly caught a lot of people's years here in Washington. But right now, there's no rumblings that he's considering moving down his list that he had when he first was considering judge Cavanaugh earlier this summer this confirmation went from using the sports parlance to a slam dunk to a layup. Maybe a free throw. Now, it's getting like to the realm of a three point line. And I understand there's kind of seven senators that are somewhat hedging their bets at this point. Yeah. And you know, they're the senators that everybody has been focusing on even before all of this came out. What is Susan Collins going to do what is Lisa Murkowski going to do what are those senators the Democrats who are from red states who are up for reelection? Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly, Heidi Heitkamp, those are the ones everybody's been keeping an eye on. And you know, I think everybody's just waiting to see how this plays out over the next three days. It's going to be very busy in Washington. This sure is thanks for laying. It all out for us. We
