Dan Bongino on FBI Trump Raid: 'This Is Some Third-World B.S.'

"To Dan bongino, we're going to have to bleep a little bit of it because he cursed, you didn't, but he essentially said what you just said. This was Dan bongino, the big podcaster last night on Fox News. This is some third world bull right here. Let me say it again. Third world bull. I mean, every word of that, I don't care that it's cable news. I was a federal agent. I raised my right hand. And I swore to protect and defend the constitution of the United States, and I love this country. This is a freaking disgrace. A disgrace. We don't live in Cuba. We don't live under Kim Jong-un, we live in a constitutional republic, a representative democracy. You have a bunch of FBI agents raiding the home of a former president because they don't like his politics. Are you kidding me?

"The inflation reduction act is about to jump start U.S. climate policy and change the world by Justin Moreland. In July, a pair of senators gathered reporters in the U.S. capitol building to deliver a message to president Joe Biden. It's time to declare a climate emergency. It was, to be sure, something of a Hail Mary, the prospects of major climate legislation had damned, and the two Democrats were desperate, worried, it could be years before Congress tackled climate change in a meaningful way. Am I concerned that it will be a decade before we have a climate majority? Said senator Jeff merkley of Oregon, alongside senator Sheldon whitehouse of Rhode Island. I am damn concerned. Less than three weeks later, democratic senators walked off the Senate floor and celebration after passing the inflation reduction act, the most significant climate legislation in U.S. history. And the coming days, the House of Representatives is expected to follow suit, sending the bill to Biden, who will, with his signature, begin a new era of climate policy in America. Experts say the legislation will dramatically accelerate the decline in U.S. emissions, putting the country within reach of the Biden administration's goal of slashing emissions in half by 2030 when compared to 2005 levels. That goal serves as a barometer of how much climate change generated pain and destruction, the world can avoid, and sets a destination of sorts for all U.S. climate policy. The inflation reduction act offers a framework for how the U.S. will tackle climate change and the 8 years until that deadline and beyond, it invests more than $360 billion in energy and climate change programs over the next decade, including enormous tax incentives to advance renewable energy and electric vehicles. The bill still leaves many details to be determined, and battle lines are already forming over the future of fossil fuel production and how to advance environmental justice. Regardless of how those battles play out, the bill will give the U.S. new found credibility as a climate leader on the international stage and help convince other countries that the energy transition is irreversible. It's impossible to know exactly how well every climate provision of the inflation reduction act will work, but what is clear is that once signed into law, it will jump start an economic transformation and rejigger international climate politics with ripple effects that will shape communities large and small and affect the way Americans live. The inflation reduction acts approach to cutting U.S. emissions is the result of decades of trial and error. President Bill Clinton attempted to pass an energy tax spot fell short. Climate advocates learned that upsetting big business could doom legislation. President Barack Obama supported congressional efforts to pass cap and trade legislation endorsed by big business. When the bill sputtered in the Senate after being passed by the House, climate advocates learned they would need to foster grassroots support to get legislation across the finish line. Both of these lessons, and many others, paved the way for the inflation reduction act. It relies largely on carrots over sticks, incentivizing businesses to decarbonize rather than penalizing them for not doing so.

Who Will This 'New and Improved' IRS Target?

"In the meantime, back to this IRS thing. I mean, I'm just kind of offended. I sound like I'm like, you know, one of the woke ones right now, 'cause I'm offended, everything. But I'm offended when they think that the answer is to somehow just go after every Tom dick and Harry and Jane and Susan and Sally. And this is who will be affected. It will be your middle class. As much as they're going to try and tell you, oh, it's the 1%, no, no, no. Just in terms of, if you have that many IRS agents, who are they going to go after, and they can't, as I keep saying, they can't go after. The people that they should go after were just the billionaires, they get away with the great deal on the tax front because we've got lawmakers that are so concerned about making sure they have enough money for their next campaign. I told you yesterday about all the money. I mean, Kirsten sinema is one example. She's got donations individual donations from the private equity industry totaling over 500,000 for her last campaign. I mean, that is a lot of money, right? And I'm just looking at the numbers 54,900 from executives over at KKR, 35,000 at Carlisle, 27,300 over at Apollo. The private equity industry is a very big lobbying organization. In fact, they probably spend more money than any other industry right now. They're on K street and one of the reasons they're doing this is to give themselves the beneficial treatment when it comes to taxes. Do you know the Chuck Schumer? Collected 1.28 million from the private equity industry, including Blackstone and KKR, so you really think that he's that interested in raising taxes on this particular group of people. Go back and listen to Monday's podcast. If you want to explain or they're on why this is income and why it should be treated as income and why this is just highway robbery, frankly, of the American people and of our government, but these people in Washington I'll tell you the whole system is so darn corrupt. When you see what just went down. And when you see that they're going to effectively inflate, again, the U.S. economy artificially by spending all this money while simultaneously adding another 80 billion to go after everyday folks from the IRS all all while saying we're going to give a pass to those private equity investors. I mean, give me a break. It's not investment. It's income and they need to be taxed as such. Anyway, it's really pretty disgusting. But the whole thing is just disgusting. I mean, the idea that they want to pass this off, the name itself as somehow an inflation reduction act. Guys, you're just spending more money. All right, before I get to that, I do have one more thing I want to mention to you. You know, it's summer and we're all looking for movies and I don't know about you, but it's kind of hard sometimes. Kind of hard to find a good movie that you can enjoy watching that is representative of your values. I think that our values have gotten kind of lost and pop culture these days. And it's one of the reasons why I think it's important for all of us to think about what we're watching and who we're supporting when we watch it, right? Are you really into Disney right now with all their bogus? Or do you want to try and seek out some alternative sources of entertainment? This is where this movie in particular comes in. When I was a kid, I used to watch Cameron on that, what was that show? Oh, you know what? I got to look it up right now as I'm talking to you. This is how you know I'm recording in real time. He had that sitcom, when I was a kid, what was it? So anyone who can answer that in the questions below, extra super duper points, go to you. I'm going to come back to that in a second because it's going to drive me crazy. I remember that sitcom really, really well. Anyway, he's got a new movie out a new movie that he's backing. He's a very big Christian. He's an growing pains. Growing pains. That was the sitcom. I remember that now. Anyway, he's got a new movie that is just out. It's pretty neat. It's got a good message, and I think it's worth taking a look at as you're looking for things to watch and be entertained by. So this is called life Mark. And in this movie life Mark, it tells the story of David who has this very comfortable world that gets totally turned upside down when his birth mother, unexpectedly reaches out to him, and she's looking to meet him. He's 18 years old at that point. She only had the chance to hold him once, and she went looking for him and he finds this out. So it's really, it's an interesting storyline and probably one that happens a lot. He gets encouragement from his adopted parents, and so he embarks on this life altering journey, which really is a process of discovery and it leads to a pretty staggering truth from his past, inspired by a true story life mark is a powerful reminder that one decision, one choice can impact so much more than one life. It's a pro family pro love pro forgiveness pro reconciliation and pro new beginnings kind of movie.

The Case for Ending The Fed With Steve Bannon

"Joining us right now is Steve Bannon. Steve had a very big weekend at cpac Steve. Welcome to the program. I want to play a piece of tape at you at cpac and we'll go from there. Let's play cut ten. We don't need to audit the fed. We need to end the Federal Reserve. The federal reserve has you surf as you surf has usurped its power and the power of the American people in our elective representatives. And no, they do not have the consent of the governor. We will not comply. We will not submit. And it must be ended. Steve, that sounds like Ron Paul, floors yours. Exactly. I hope to take it, you know, he was a great inspiration, but we hope to take it one step up. Ron Paul, who had his entire presidential campaign around about money and currency, you know, is a great warrior and a brave man. I'm not a libertarian. But I understand that the administrative state and particularly the global apparatus is funded by the central banks. And it's outrageous that the evidence today is so much even more overwhelming than when Ron Paul laid it out for us. From 2008 to right now, Charlie, you know, what the $23 trillion they've printed, the 9 and a half trade they put on the balance sheet of the Federal Reserve is just increased the power and concentration of wealth in our nation. 0.5% of the American population own more assets and wealth than the bottom 90%. This is exactly what the framers fought a revolution to avoid. They wanted to get away from the landed aristocracy in Great Britain and the mercantile class in Great Britain. And we are back to this oligarchy. What we have is a combination of state capitalism and authoritarian government

Sen. Ted Cruz: The American People Don't Want 87,000 New IRS Agents

"Here's senator Ted Cruz over the weekend. Madam president, there are a lot of bad things in this bill, but fewer worse than the proposal by Democrats in this bill to double the size of the IRS and create 87,000 new IRS agents. I guarantee you citizens and every one of our states, if you ask them, what do they want? They don't want 87,000 new IRS agents. And they're not being created to audit billionaires or giant corporations. They're being created to audit you. The House ways and means committee, the minorities put out an estimate that under this bill, there will be 1.2 million new audits per year with over 700,000 of those new audits falling on taxpayers making $75,000 or less. I believe personally we should abolish the IRS, but at a minimum we shouldn't make the IRS larger than The Pentagon, the State Department, the FBI, and the border patrol all combined. That's what the Democrats are proposing here. It is a terrible idea. If you don't want 87,000 new IRS agents, vote yes. Good for you. Senator Cruz. Unfortunately, elections have consequences. And the Republicans, they just didn't have the votes. They don't have the votes in the House of Representatives. So we're about to get 87,000 more IRS agents, and they're coming after all of us. That's who they're coming after. They're coming after you conservatives. They're coming after you, Christians. That's what's going to happen. Oh,

Dems' Inflation Reduction Act Will Double the Size of the IRS

"This is all going to reduce inflation. It's not it's going to blow up the economy. And folks, if we're not careful, we could be talking about something worse than a recession here. So anyway, a $700 billion in new spit in new taxes, 400 billion dollars in new spending. We're setting a lot more money over to Ukraine, but the bigger concern I have is tucked away in the legislation where and it's going to pass the House of Representatives. Biden's going to sign it at all. There's just no way around that. But anyway, we've got Ted Cruz out there and Ted Cruz was sounding the alarm. Ted Cruz was warning us that this in fact was a danger to law abiding middle class small business owners of America. So the IRS, as far as we can tell, they're going to be given permission to hire 87,000 new agents. That's going to double the size of the IRS. And what do you think they're going to be doing here, folks? They're going to be coming after you and me. They're going to be coming. That's why they wanted access to our bank accounts. They want to come after you the law abiding, hardworking taxpayers of America. Now, again, 87,000 IRS agents, they're going to double the size of the IRS. By the time they get finished, they're going to be larger now. You listen to this, we're going to put this in perspective for you. 87,000 additional agents makes the IRS larger than the State Department. The Pentagon, the FBI and border patrol combined. So what does that tell you about the direction of this administration?

Nine of the Original States Required Soldiers to Be Christian

"Know 9 of the original states of the 13 9 of them in their state constitution required all office soldiers to be Protestant Christians. Did you know three states were more liberal and all you had to do was be a plain Christian. Right? Like Delaware, every office holder had to believe in God the father, Jesus Christ, it's always on. The holy ghost one God bless you ever more. You said, that was, that was a plane that was, yeah, that's pretty liberal because you could be a Catholic or a Protestant and say, yeah, I believe in father son and the holy ghost. Whereas in North Carolina, you had to be a Protestant Christian up until 1835. And one state had zero religious requirements to hold state office, Rhode Island founded by baptist, and they said that if you required someone to be a Christian, they could say they were just to get elected, and that would be hypocritical. So just vote for the best Christian person. You know, we're just not going to put it in the constitution. So that was the founding. It was those states that sent representatives to write our U.S. Constitution. It makes no sense to think that they would outlaw themselves.

Harnessing the Return of 2016 MAGA Energy

"Want to start with where we're at. Carrie Lake has won the Arizona primary for governor. Maga candidates across the country are winning their primaries. This Republican Party is a grassroots party, ready to fight, ready to govern, ready to improve people's lives, ready to put their citizens first, but the pressure is now going to be on. And as we warned early in the week, the midterm elections are all but a certain thing. Democrats are adjusting. Democrats are going to outspend us, they control the media. They control social media, they control our election system, and they are going to be willing to cut corners at every single turn to try to get their preferred candidates across the finish line. The generic ballot is tightening, the generic congressional vote, according to Rasmussen reports, Republicans only lead by three points. Whereas a couple months ago, Republicans led by 15 points. We're seeing one race in particular that we endorsed in Washington, Joe Kent is only down by 1.8 points with lots of ballots still to be counted. Again, Kerry Lake Blake masters, all one in Arizona. However, as we look towards the midterms, Republicans only have a .1 lead if you average all of the generic ballot polls, a .1 point lead barely taking back the House of Representatives. Barely. And the U.S. Senate is a complete coin toss. It shouldn't be that way with inflation open borders, CRT woke as an anti americanism, war on American energy, it should be a complete blowout. Now some of these polls might be suppression polls and misrepresentations. You can usually add 5 or 6 to all these polls that's usually a good rule of thumb. But make no mistake. Democrats, they know they're going to lose, but their strategy right now is a very smart one. That's right. I'm saying the Democrats are using a smart strategy. They're basically saying we want to lose less. They know that midterms can be very hard. Joe Biden is deeply unpopular and Republicans will be outspent. At every corner. Now

Kansas Voters Decide 'No' on the Abortion Amendment... Or Do They?

"Talk about Kansas for a second here. This would be the only loss that I can pinpoint and maybe Washington third with Joe Kent. We're not sure the results there yet. We're keeping an eye on it. It doesn't look good for him. For a couple of reasons. But I want to say this Kansas thing is super confusing to me. So I'll be fully transparent. I did not know about the Kansas bout referendum until somebody emailed us about it yesterday. And I said, what are you talking about? It is so a couple of things. The media is carrying the results from the Kansas ballot referendum. As if Kansas does not want to outlaw abortion and they say they want to keep abortion legal. It's a massive loss. But the ballot, the way it was written itself was insanely confusing, wasn't it, Jack? I actually have the word feature if you want me to. So everybody just bear with us a second as Jack goes through this. This was on the ballot in Kansas, Jack go through it. All right, so here is the verbiage as it appeared on the ballots in Kansas. Regulation of abortions, the section 22. Because kansans value both women and children, the constitution of the state of Kansas does not require government funding of abortion and does not create or secure a right to abortion. To the extent permitted by the constitution of the United States, the people through their elected state representatives and state senators may pass laws regarding abortion, including but not limited to laws that account for circumstances of pregnancy, resulting from rape or incest or circumstances of necessity to save the life of the mother. Yes or no. What? See, I'm as pro life as it becomes. So wait, which way would we have voted then, Jack? So you're super pro life, I'm pro life. So you'd want to protect the right to life, but it's like a double negative. How did this ever get past a judge? I don't even know. So there is an explanatory statement. And it says, a vote for you, the value, a vote for the value them both amendment would affirm there is no Kansas constitutional right to abortion, a vote against the amendment would make no changes to the constitution of the state of Kansas. But the problem is which one is it then? It doesn't actually say that it just says yes or no. So it doesn't even necessarily say for or against in the explanatory state. Right.

"Bartiromo in first cut 13 asks senator barrasso from Wyoming, hey, what do you think about this midterm poll? By the way, every midterm poll is shortening and shortening. What looked like it was going to be an inevitable red wave. Democrats have done their work. They're motivating their base. They're registering voters. They're raising money. They're expanding their activist pool and Republicans are doing what? Well, first, let's play cut 13 of senator barrasso on Maria bartiromo show, play cut 13. Well, senator, I guess what I'm asking you is, shouldn't the Republicans be doing better at this point? And look at the congressional generic ballot and the congressional vote preference that we have here. Democrat 41% Republican 44% shouldn't the gap the wider shouldn't Republicans be winning. Well, I'm very optimistic about the elections in November. It's still a hundred days away. Maria, this is going to be a rejection election. The American people are going to reject the Democrats and Joe Biden because of the things that you just mentioned. Crushing inflation, chaos at the border, crime in this city's rejection election. Do you think that's going to be enough? Do you think the message of the Republicans being a rejection election is adequate to be able to win back the House of Representatives in the Senate? The polls are showing us no. It shows that we're actually getting within the margin of error. In fact, on certain polls, this is a short clip, cut to Maria bartiromo shows Democrats now have a four point lead on a general congressional ballot. And look, I know some of these polls can be wrong, but the fact they're tightening is cause for concern. They could be off by a couple points, but the trend is what you should always look at. Trends matter. Play cut two. USA today Suffolk university poll released on Thursday, has Democrats with a 4% lead on a generic congressional ballot. So Democrats now 4% lead in that poll, other ones show Republicans with a couple point lead, but regardless is that every single one of the polls, regardless of the polling agency you trust or you don't trust, it's tightening.

"Here we are in August and August is also the month in which we have the Wyoming Republican primary. And that means it looks like zhao do Liz Cheney. She is on her way out and everybody kind of knows it. CNN knows it. ABC News knows it based on a recent report, the federalist knows it based on a recent article. These are conversations that these media outlets are having with people in Wyoming and they're stopping random people at like, well in the case of the federalist was the midsummer cowboy festival. Liz Cheney, by the way, made a kind of cami or appearance and then rushed off to do her quote important January 6th committee work. But the woman who hung out and spent a lot of time at the festival was her opponent. This is. Harriet hagerman, who is leading Liz Cheney by, let's see, 25 points, 25 to 30 points depending on which poll you consult. And even Liz Cheney seems to kind of recognize that she's done because she said recently on CNN quote, if I have to choose between maintaining a seat in the House of Representatives or protecting the constitutional republic, look at this woman's grand illusions or delusions. And ensuring the American people know the truth about Donald Trump, I'm going to choose the constitution and truth every single day. So this is basically a politician who has, well, it's not just that she's lost her political marbles. I think what's happened is she has alienated herself so completely that her career move now is to seek opportunities in a completely different direction.

And I just sat through a hearing with the assistant attorney general where the Republicans are protesting that the Department of Justice is looking at people that threaten violence at school board meetings. And they can not draw the distinction between someone who would show up peacefully and passionately to talk about their kids curriculum. And the over 220 cases that Reuters has recently identified of incidents where school board members are being threatened and look, this is a lot who now is more comfortable with violence than voting. They'd rather see chaos than community. And we can't call them out enough because look only one vision for America is going to come out of this midterm. Either it's a vision of community or it's a vision of chaos. And we know they have chosen chaos

Newt Gingrich Joins Dinesh to Talk About Biden's America

"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome to the podcast Newt Gingrich. Man who needs no introduction, but he's the chairman of gingrich 360, a multimedia production company, former Speaker of the House of Representatives and architect of the well legendary contract with America in 1994, nude is also a Fox News contributor podcast host newt's world and syndicated columnist and his latest book, which we're going to be talking about defeating big government socialism, saving America's future, newt, welcome to the podcast, great to have you. You've been the architect of some of the pivotal strategies that have been deployed by the Republicans over the last few decades. I'd like your assessment of where we are as a country today because it seems like we're living in a different America. Than the one we lived in, let's just say in the post Reagan era, even in the Clinton era, and that things have become more decayed more debilitated, more divided than ever. Do you agree with that assessment or do you have maybe a more a different take? Well, I think that the easiest analogy is that we've had a cancer of anti American left wingers. Which first really began to show up in the early 1960s with the work of people like marcuse at Berkeley, the student free speech movement of Berkeley. The weatherman, the black Panthers who openly said that they were out to assassinate police and actually killed 13 policemen. The fact that there are something like a 180 cities burning in the late 1960s, there were 2500 bombings in, I think, 1970, 71, and there was a lot of stuff out there. And then the country sort of reacted to it. And Nixon silent majority turned out to be real. But it was captured for me and two of theater whites amazing books on the making of the president. In the 1968 making the president, he has a chapter on the news media, which you could write today. He says, here's the role of The New York Times. Here's the old Washington Post. Here's how far to the left they are, et cetera. So it was already locked in in 68. And in 72, he wrote a sentence, which I thought was amazingly prescient. He said the problem of govern head and the reason he couldn't cut a deal. Was that, in the left, that liberal ideology had become a liberal theology.

"You imagine? A Republican committee in the House of Representatives with the same unobstructed investigation. The same tools as the January 6th committee. To investigate the Biden crime family. We have never had a man or woman, but we've never had a man in the Oval Office. Who, in my view, has been so corrupt as this man and yet, whether it's The New York Times and The Washington Post with their phony little after the fact articles and all the other big corrupt phony media. Who've taken such a pass, where is Woodward and Bernstein? I know. I know where they are. They're at the corral at restaurant. They all you can eat. Look at this Bernstein. Probably steals all the ribs there. I'm guessing he does. But they're not on the job anymore. Are they mister producer? They're busy chasing Trump. Why chase Trump? When you have a corrupt crooked fraud in the Oval Office, who's selling our national security to the enemy And I might add. He is positioning himself right now, ladies and gentlemen. Right now. To eliminate the tariffs that president Trump has put on the communist Chinese, much as he eliminated a special law. That focused on communist China stealing our military and other technology because he said it was. Discriminatory. We're dealing with an insane man and insane administration in an insane ideology that's going to get us blown off the face of the earth. But don't worry there. They're chasing Trump. Now, ladies and gentlemen, I want to tell you about something that's positive, okay? That's going to help you sleep at night and rest at night, make you feel really, really comfortable. The best cotton in America, if not the world, red, land, cotton, it's grown right here in America and Alabama on the jager family farm. Every stitch of their sheets and all the other products that they produce, done right here in the United States of America, it's grown here, 100% in the USA, all of it's done here.

"There's no reason why members of Congress shouldn't be able to defend themselves while they're doing their jobs. In the capital. And she's taking this on. She's trying to gain additional Republican support, maybe a few Democrats but since she's taken this on and since she was accused of setting off metal detectors and attempted to take a gun into the chambers in the Capitol building. She now has been mentioned at least indirectly by Nancy Pelosi. And get this. Nancy Pelosi thinks that a Congress person Carrying their gun in Congress poses a risk to Congress approach to help we protect members. I do believe, and I have said this all along that We will probably need a supplemental. For more security for members when the enemy is within the House of Representatives, a threat that members of concerned about in addition to what is happening outside But I think that the threat is within The chamber. The threat is within the House of Representatives. She's talking about an American member of Congress. Pass the background check. To purchase a firearm Who's a law abiding citizen elected to represent her constituents in Washington, D. C. Awfully carrying a firearm. The mere presence of that firearm is a threat that Nancy Pelosi thanks members of Congress needs security to protect them from How ridiculous is that? That's exactly how Democrats Feel about gun ownership. That's exactly how Democrats feel about law abiding gun owners. That they literally believe that were threats. Other people's safety, even though we've passed those background checks, even though we lawfully carry our firearms, even a member of Congress Elected by her constituents to represent them in Congress is deemed as a threat because she wants to lawfully carry a firearm while she does her job. Ridiculous of that. But how symbolic is that? In terms of how these people feel about law abiding citizens who simply wants the capacity to defend themselves. You know, whatever you want to say about the riots, Quote unquote. Now, of course, is being called an insurrection. I oppose it with everything in me. Do I understand frustration of the American people after the last election? Of course I do. Why support storming the Capitol? Absolutely not. I absolutely do not condone that in any way, shape or form. And and I know people that have been caught up in this that deeply regretted. I know others. I'm sure we're in there just to instigate and they weren't necessarily trump support. But that in my mind isn't really the issue and the issue in my mind is it was counterproductive. Put lives at risk. Resulted in one shooting and other death. And did all five dust being claimed the result directly from the riot really result from the right. There's an open question about that. But I don't want to minimize any loss of life and never will. And I Absolutely hate that this happened. I hate that it happened. I understand some of the frustration that caused it. Assuming Bit. In fact, people supporting President Trump really lead this effort. Think they were probably antifa members there to I've heard that from multiple sources who were there. But that isn't minimize how much I despise the fact that it happened. The reason I despise the fact that it happened is because it was counterproductive. It did not help. If people were doing this because they were doing it to support President Trump. Do you think? In fact, They did anything to help. Or did they, in fact cause members of Congress in both houses to change their votes and how they were going to vote in terms of certifying the election? It was counterproductive. That's what I tell people all the time we stop Start talking about protests. Or even rallies. I'm a big fan of them. The people in whatever legislative body we're talking about whatever governmental office we're talking about the need to know how the American people feel. And rallies could be tremendously effective simply through the volume of the people who participate. But your conduct During those rallies, what you do Is going to bear directly on every other member of that group and ask yourself Every single time. Is it going to be productive? Isn't gonna help. Or is it gonna be counterproductive? Is it gonna hurt?.

We have photographic and audio evidence, and they're being enabled. And encouraged and incited by the real enemy within the gates. That's not your old Democrat party, Bruce that that that party's dead and gone. This is the new radical leftist Marxist.

He as we played earlier this week, insulting the United States of America and fellow Americans by calling us morally deprived.

I'll tell you what's morally deprived of signing an executive order number 40, by the way, forcing Americans to fund the killing of babies overseas anywhere else in the world. That's what he did yesterday. That is heinous. It is genocidal. It is horrific that is morally deprived. Then you have the speaker of the house. Saying that the enemy is within her chamber. I do believe, and I have said this all along that we will probably need a supplemental. For more security for members when the enemy is within the House of Representatives, a threat that members of concerned about in addition to what is happening outside Yeah. This is the demonization of Ah, conservatives of Republicans. The enemy there. Come what We know who the true enemy is The enemy of the First Amendment, the enemy to the Second Amendment, the enemy to the Constitution, the enemy to our freedoms. The enemy to capitalism, who which party? Is opposed to all of that. We know it's a Democrat party, and it is embodied by radical progressives and Marxist like AOC. But this term, there are legitimate white supremacist sympathizers that sit at the heart and at the core of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives. You know, the suppression of free speech is the first step here. And those kinds of comments by folks like AOC intend to do just that. You could be accused of being a white supremacist sympathizer.

"The House of Representatives convening right now. We expect articles of impeachment sometime this week. CBS's 60 Minutes, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said impeachments important to ensure President Trump is permanently banned from political office. The evidence is now that That it was a well planned Organized group with leadership and guidance and direction and the direction was You go get people They were vocally saying, Where's the speaker? We know she has staff. They're here someplace We're gonna find them, She says Republicans of responsibility to go to the president and tell him it's over. She also said that she's been assured that military officials will not blindly obey any irrational orders coming from the White House. I have sought Information from those who are in a position to know that there are protections against this dangerous president, initiating any military hostilities or Something worse than that. So the energy for impeachment is clearly there. But CBS news political analyst Leonard Stein horns says there are other considerations for Democrats. Democrats have to determine whether the political case makes sense. They may want to put Republicans on the spot and then they also believe that the American people want Donald Trump held responsible. But it may also detract from Joe Bynes agenda and his desire to hit the ground sprinting on January 20th. So Democrats have introduced an article of impeachment, which is based on incitement of insurrection. But there are also some Democrats urging a delay in any trial. There's one proposal out there to impeach the president this week and then wait a few months before forwarding the articles of impeachment to the Senate. But by then the passions may cool. And if it doesn't get the two thirds majority of the Senate that it needs, it might be roundly criticized as a distraction, especially with Donald Trump out of office and disgraced him way. Lee is a law professor at the University of Baltimore. And she says that beyond just impeachment, it's time to place more limits. Unpresidential power the United States Congress needs to step up and implement statutory limitations on the power of the presidency. One of the big elements of founding fathers anticipated was that the American people would not elect someone to that office that didn't have measured judgment and integrity. And you can look in the federalist papers, the contemporaneous documents of the ratification of the Constitution and that was one of their beliefs, for example, why they didn't have more limits on the pardon power. So she's saying that the founders just assumed on Lee Persons of character. We get anywhere near the presidency, and we have to plan for world with. That's not the case. I'd like to say it's a one off and that the American people will elect people with integrity going forward. But given the amount of misinformation, the fact they're Republicans in the United States Congress that are still fueling the lie that this is a rigged election. I think that is really the elephant in the room going forward. Are they going to admit that they dupes the American public and go back to fax? Interesting question. Another consequence is that businesses are rethinking political contributions. Marriott and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association say they are cutting off donations to the Republicans who objected to the electoral college results. His political analyst Greg Valliere. There's quite a backlash, and I think it will continue against the Republicans, who still voted to reverse the election result and they voted after The assault on the capital. So I think that they're going to be in for some difficulty. Days ahead, and Citigroup has announced that it is pausing all federal political donations until April of 2021.

Starting today. The automatic traffic cams are now live. And here's Chris with an update. Yeah, they had to put those cameras in they being the city of Seattle because they thought that was the only way to really keep the bridge free flowing because the honor system didn't work having police officers on the bridge during peak communing hours didn't really work. So they decided that it's time to give violators, automated traffic tickets, and last month they put in the cameras. They were giving warnings and starting today, the fees will start going out. The tickets will start going out. And as you know, the low bridge is really the only direct shot out of West Seattle because of the closure of the high bridge, and it really can't handle Dutch traffic before becoming congested.

"And here in Singapore. I'm Juliet Solly. And I'm Brian Curtis looking at markets we do have some slight gains, particularly for look at future is in the cash markets as well. The Nikkei is just barely higher in the ASX 200 up about a third of 1%. Possibly trading is delayed today for the college entrance exams. We'll get some training a little bit later this morning and we'll we'll fill you in on those details when we see them so we get to markets in a moment. But for now, some of the top stories and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, a backing a bipartisan stimulus plan to help spark negotiations, we get more now from Bloomberg's Chris Anstey. After insisting on a $2.4 trillion stimulus package in the run up to the election. They have now made a significant move and have proposed that a $908 billion bipartisan plan that was released yesterday be the basis for New negotiations with the Republicans. So this is a significant change, you know, potentially something that could break the logjam. And meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that he's been circulating his own plan to fellow Republicans and we're told this is largely a revision of an earlier $500 billion plan that had been rejected by Democrats is inadequate. Even so, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said that House and Senate leaders a striving for a deal on pandemic relief by this weekend, and that would be voted on by the middle of next week. U S. House of representatives approving legislation that could potentially kick Chinese companies off U. S exchanges. That story from Bloomberg's Tom Mackenzie, The U. S House of Representatives passed the bill that was previously green, lighted by the Senate back in May. It will now go to President Trump, who's expected to sign the legislation into law in what would be seen as a watershed moment. The bill requires companies to let US inspectors review their financial audits, something Beijing has long being opposed to You know what it says are confidentiality concerns. It would also require companies to disclose if they're under government control. Failure to allow ordered inspections for three consecutive years would lead to a company being banned from U. S exchanges in Beijing. Tom Mackenzie Bloomberg Daybreak Asia. Julia on this one of our regular guests on the program. Brendan returned from Kirk Crane shares so says that he thinks there's more bark than bite here that investors are betting that a compromise will be reached between the two before the legislation actually starts to take effect, Juliet All right, Macquarie Great. Meanwhile, Australia's largest investment bank agreeing to buy Waddell and Reed Financial for $1.7 billion. It's an effort to expand its U. S asset management business. But Cory said the offer values Waterland reaches a $25 apiece in cash, and the acquisition is expected to close by the middle of 2021. After the deal is completed, Macquarie will sell water and reads wealth management business. LPL financial Holdings for about $300 Million and the deal will lift Macquarie Assets on the MASH management to 465 billion. Let's see how fast I am on the terminal. Getting the shit price here. Cory down a third of 1% in Sydney Trade $137.92. All right. We just got some P m. My daughter coming throughout off Hong Kong, Singapore. He read for Hong Kong better than the prior month coming in at 50.1. So we're seeing expansion now here and also in Singapore. It is actually weaker than what we saw in October 46.7. They're also Australian home lines rising by 0.7 of 1%. Month on month in A month of October. That is quite significantly lower after we saw that 5.9% gain in the month off September, so fair bit of data to get through. As we watch these Asian markets. We have been seeing a little bit of a Hold. I guess. After this record rally that we've been on the air 6 200, those still rising up by 4/10 of 1%. The Kiwi market is under a little bit of pressure.

"Let me go through this, and then we'll get back to your telephone calls here. The telephone number is 808. 08108080810 says for 15, 80 88 10. So here's the thing. We're close to the election. Right now. We're very close to the election tomorrow will be four weeks away from November 3rd. That's the date of the election. And so the question is what happens if a candidate for president dies and this becomes an important issue because we have two older men who are running for President Donald Trump is contracted the Corona virus. He's supposed to be discharged from the hospital in about an hour, but he's not out of the woods. I mean, there are a lot of things that could potentially happen. He had some bad things happen to him once he tested positive. That And so he's had this treatment that is making him feel much, much better. But we don't know what's going to happen. Anything could happen to him. Anything could happen to Joe Biden between now and the inauguration. Okay, so let's do talk about some of this. What if a candidate for President dies before the election or right after what happens if the winning candidate dies before inauguration day? Well, one thing we know is that the House of Representatives does have the final say on who wins the presidency. But before the House might take charge, there are roles that were played by political parties by state legislatures by the Electoral college by the court and, of course by voters so a political party can replace a candidate who dies. But not this close to the election day. 63 million votes have already been sent to voters. Nearly three million votes have already been cast. The deadline for candidates to withdraw has passed. In all but two states. So a candidate withdrawing from the election. You can't do that. You can't get your name off the ballot anymore in all but two states, those two states or South Carolina and Connecticut. And their deadlines are just days away. The date of the election, of course, is set by federal law, and so you're not going to be able to simply change that. Watch the firt. It's the Tuesday after the first Monday in November, which this year falls on November 3rd. It could be changed, but it would have to be changed by Congress. It would be impossible to change ballots without delaying the election and restarting the voting process. The chance of Congress doing that is pretty much slim to none. Now what we always have to keep in mind in presidential elections. Is that the way it stands now? I have advocated for this to be changed. John Rothman has come around, He advocates for it to be changed. But in a presidential election, it's not a direct democracy voters are not casting ballots for candidates. You think you are? You're not. You're voting for electors. We're voting for slate of electors. They're the people who are going to pick the president and vice president as members of the electoral College toe win the presidency, the candidate has to win the backing of the majority of electors. That's 270 electors in the Electoral College. The meeting of the Electoral College is right now It's really pretty much a ceremonial confirmation of the choice that's made by voters this year. It'll happen on December 14th. But if the winning candidate guys things would change, it would no longer be routine. The question, according to a constitutional law professor at New York University, is Who would the electors support The 20th amendment, says that the term of the current president and vice president ends at noon on January 20th. There is no provision to extend it so if the winning presidential candidate dies after the election. Ah! There's you can't extend when the comfort when the inauguration takes place. Thehe amendment says that the president elect dies The vice president elect shall be sworn in as president. So that's in the Constitution so if the winning presidential candidate dies after the election The running mate becomes the president of the United States. The winning candidate doesn't become president elect until a joint session of Congress counts the votes from the electoral college and declares a winner. By law. Congress is scheduled to formally received the votes from the Electoral College on January 6th. The new Congress, which will be elected in November and sworn into office on January. 3rd will preside. So get that So the electoral votes have to be certified by the congress. And that doesn't happen until January, 16th. I'm sorry. January 6th. I don't know what I'm thinking of January. 6th is when that happens. The new Congress the Congress that has just been elected, takes office on January 3rd. So it's the new Congress who would preside over that. Were that to happen. What happens if the winning candidate dies before Congress declares a winner? See that apparently is the worst more most confusing time because they're going to have to figure out what to do with electoral college votes that were cast for a candidate who has died. If the winning candidate dies before the Electoral College meets, the electors could coalesce around a replacement candidate recommended by the party. And that may be the vice presidential candidate. But that's where the party gets so much involved in this. For the most part. Those people are picked because they're loyal party people, the electoral the the electors, air picked because they're loyal party people. There could be a few strays, but they're really not rebels. Ah party's electors would have an incentive. To coalesce around one candidate because they wouldn't want to risk throw in the election to the other party, but there's no guarantee they would all agree on a replacement candidate. So it does sound like it would be really chaotic. Now some states have laws that require electors to vote for the presidential candidate who won the statewide vote. Other states could quickly passed laws governing the election. The electors in the event that a candidate dies the party can say with the party wants, but the states will decide what to do with those electors. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously in July that states may require electors to support the candidate picked by the voters in the election, but the court left open what would happen if the candidate dies. So if that happens, that's going to be the biggest mass and if that happens, expected to end up in the court, there will be litigation. Congress's world. The 12th amendment to the Constitution gives Congress the final say on who was elected president and vice president. Congress decides whether to accept or reject the slate of electors from the electoral College and to determine whether a candidate has won the required 270 electoral votes to become president. As a check on this power. Both the House and Senate must agree to reject a slate of electors if the two chambers don't agree. The electors get counted under federal law. If no candidate reaches 270 electoral votes the House chooses the president and the Senate chooses the vice president in a process spelled out in the Constitution. That kind of fun to see, wouldn't it? In the House. Each state delegation gets one vote for president and they must choose among the three candidates who win the most votes in the electoral College. Currently, Republicans have a majority in 26 state delegations. But the numbers could change. After the November elections and a new Congress takes office. The Senate would choose the vice president by a simple majority vote. This is really a mess, and we've never had to deal with this. This is never something that we have had to deal with that a president elect dies, You know, under any of these circumstances. Congress has decided three presidential elections. It's been almost 150 years in 1800, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr. Tied in the electoral college vote was 73 electors of Peace. After six days of debate and 36 ballots, the House chose Jefferson as the nation's third president. Andrew Jackson won a plurality of the voted most electoral college votes in 18 24. But he failed to reach a majority in Afore candidate race. The House chose one of his opponents as the victor. John Quincy Adams Jackson when the presidency four years later, and Congress also helped to choose the president following the election in 18 76. Between Rutherford a. Rutherford behaves Hayes..

"The methane cloud that you can see on satellite sitting over the four corners region congressman and how does new mexico going forward balance the economic necessity necessity or impact of oil and gas drilling with the need to transition to a more just economy climate-friendly economy. How'd did you see that happening over the next we're already. We're already transitioning just this past week. I climbed to the top of a winter buying over near encino new mexico go and it's pretty amazing right that you you climb to the top open up top and you can see forever the landscape there still herds of antelope running around. There's still people farmers still able to do what they do. It's such a non disruptive type of economic development in clean energy resource. I like i wouldn't mind ever if those were all over the place right. Those are those are revenue new makers and and for folks in those rural communities who might have a bad year farming they still get a check from that wind turbine every month or every year whatever the contract states right so we need to move on renewable energy. That's my answer to that. We don't need <hes> <hes> if we're going to transition the transition is happening. We can make it faster we can we can as members of congress. Yes we want to move forward. We wanna make sure that that folks who <hes> don't make <hes> you know aren't high on the income list can still afford it to have a put solar panels on their homes and and you know those those types of infrastructure needs so i just. I just think that you know saying we need gas and oil we need to do this. We need to fracture chocolate canyon because the state relies on it. I just think that is that's not telling pulling the whole truth of of how we move forward on energy resources in new mexico. I have solar panels on my house. The bill l. seven dollars a month. We charge an electric car on that resource. I don't i just i just feel like that. We can do this this but we we don't need to be sold ability goods every time we turn around saying that you know if we don't do this then our our whole you know state falls apart and look as we diversify new mexico's economy <hes> which is something. I'm proud to see happening where <hes> c._n._n. Explosion the film industry. We're seeing more tech. Startups call new mexico home whether it's tech transfer coming out of our national laboratories or even now oh companies <hes> all across california denver austin salt lake city that are looking for more affordable places to live with high quality of life no better place than you mexico. Oh so if you're out there come on over new mexico's open for business but with the oil and gas industry. Let's start with what is should be happening already in new mexico zico. Why is it that new mexico which is not the top producer of oil or gas in america is the worst when it comes to methane emissions since that problem should be solved can be solved in must be solved. I'm under the leadership of governor michelle luhan grisham with the support of the legislature. There's an effort effort underway to be able to cap all the leaks and stop <hes> prevent eliminate methane flaring inventing by the way it's theft of taxpayer dollars. There's not just for u._s. Tax payers but also here in new mexico <hes> supporting research at our national labs. The trump administration has diminished all of the research advancements advancements when it comes to solar <hes> deployment of the wind resources that congresswoman holland's describing or even the storage capacity upgrading our transmission corridors across america the amount of electrons that are lost with the movement of electricity something that we have to solve all of that can happen in new mexico were perfectly situated the amount of sunshine that we have the advancements at sandia national laboratory with storage and technology <hes> all the way to legislation that myself and u._s. Senator tina smith have laid out which is to get to net zero emissions with electricity generation in the case of our bill by two thousand fifty following the call to action by the panel on climate change jeff from the u._n. So there's things that we can do diversifying our economy taking action <hes> and not putting our head in the sand is going to be critically important decisions going forward. Climate has rightfully emerged as one of the top tier issues in the presidential race. I'd imagine that both of you are in a position to have the the era of a whole lot of this field. You mentioned getting to net zero. What else do both of you want to see this as presidential field prioritize in terms of whether you call it a green new deal or energy plans or just transition what what are the. What are your priorities that you want to see. This field talk about when they're campaigning. We'll definitely all of those things right. How how is our country going to move forward. How how are we going to make sure that you know look in our country. The income disparity has gotten worse and worse and worse. It's so terrible that so many people are living in poverty liberty right now across our country they couldn't afford to <hes> to buy into the renew and think about this those folks if they had solar panels on their homes and their electricity bill was seven dollars a month. That would be helpful to them right sure. I want to see how they're going to make sure that every every every level of income has a chance to essentially be a part of this new transition. I'd really like to see that and of course you know. There's something that's come up several times with me and that is you know native american sacred sites of at aren't within the boundaries of their lands. The standing rock folks people who who protested to protect their sacred lake that sacred lake isn't within the boundaries hundreds of their tribal lands. Just because it's not doesn't mean that it ceases to be a sacred site to them so i like to hear how or see that the field is really exploring that talking about how they work with <hes> tribal leaders and communities to address those types types of discrepancies in and how you know they're able to participate as well look we need a plan of action on how to respond respond to the climate crisis that we're facing around the world and across america the the difference between our candidates and the trump administration in my eyes is simple <hes> <hes> from the onset our candidates have and will continue to call for the united states to rejoin the paris climate accord's as opposed to the president walking away from our candidates will encourage the accelerated the research of <hes> deployment of renewables of solving the storage problem of finding new ways to generate power and getting us to net zero emissions but congresswomen sleman holland touched on something critically important that i've not heard yet and that's answering the call when it comes to health disparities import communities especially in communities of color color and a native american communities where you often see the generation that's in those communities the high rates of asthma <hes> cancers and other chronic diseases is the first time that we had the former e._p._a. Administrator the first ep administrate under donald trump come in and there were all these reports about first first class private chartered jets and chatting to resorts around the world to the mattresses and hand lotion and all the all the scott pruitt stuff when i asked e._p._a. Administrator scott pruitt <hes> how many poor communities he had been to with these travels. The answer was none. They didn't take any time to understand the health disparities that are being caused and chronic conditions that are being placed right at the footstep of families when we went out to those methane plumes and there were families and animals being raised right by who cares about them the e._p._a. The next administration has a responsibility as do all of us to make sure that we're talking about them and finding ways to keep them safe and that's something that i certainly hope that all here in the near future from one of our candidates as well.

"Hey we love being in the land of enchantment so much a couple weeks ago that we came back to another episode this time sitting down with two members of congress in house a wildlife corridors summit it is a fabulous abuse conversation with assistant speaker of the house ben ray luhan and first term congresswoman deb haaland earlier this year. She became the first native american woman to preside over the house of representatives. We talked about wildlife tribal issues national monuments and a whole lot more. I'm very excited about this. Episode also also very excited that later this week we are going to be live in tucson arizona coming up this thursday august twenty ninth. We will be talking the congressman role gonzalvo the chairman of the house natural resources committee. We've got len ness a for the head of natives outdoors and stephanie sklar the executive director of the sonoran institute. If you are in town please come take a listen. We're going to be at american eat company on south fourth avenue. That's an all local food hall all in market. We're going to be taking over the north room starting at three thirty on thursday the twenty ninth. We'll start recording the podcast around four. Please stick around afterwards words to chat with us. Maybe have a beer again this coming thursday. The twenty ninth american eat company in tucson. The podcast starts at four in the afternoon soon. We will see they're all right. Let's do the news starting with some discouraging signs for the sage grouse. That's the bird whose habitat is being threatened and by oil and gas development across the west in idaho. The grouses population has dropped by fifty two percent since two thousand sixteen. That's a trend that biologists allergists have seen in neighboring states as well in wyoming thirty three oil and gas wells have been drilled in core sage grouse habitat under the trump administration compare that to just eight wells at the end of the obama years a report that came out last month from the national wildlife federation the audubon society and the wilderness society the found at the rate of oil and gas leasing in sage grouse habitat is nearly three times higher on the trump administration than it was after the obama administration ministration cut a deal that attempted to stave off a listing under the endangered species act and in a related story. The interior department has launched an all all out assault on the endangered species act announcing three new rules that weaken enforcement of wildlife protections first interior will weaken protections for species species that are listed as threatened but not yet endangered the obvious result the areas that more species will then continue to decline and end up being endangered secondly the rules change the definition of critical habitat they now lit interior leave out places that are suitable for an endangered species but are no longer her current habitat again. It's not rocket science to realize that if you protect less land you are reducing the chances that species could recover in the future and finally interior can now choose to ignore the impacts of climate change on endangered species. The obvious example here is the polar bear their their habitat is literally melting away so they are going to have to move in order to survive but under these new rules interior wouldn't have to protect areas the the polar bears will inevitably have to move to so all of these changes as a whole make it clear the intent here is to give interior secretary david bernhardt all the leeway he needs to pick and choose which species to save and which to let go extinct if that's more convenient his former clients alliance and of course changes like this will not go unchallenged expect to see lots of lawsuits from state attorneys general and conservation groups we are honored to be joined today by two new mexico congressional representatives assistant speaker of the house ben ray luhan and representative deborah holland.

We'll talk more about that in in a minute but i want to start by acknowledging that this is a very special part of the south west here in northern new mexico. You can't help but be aware of the strong connections between the people and the land and water and wildlife here. It is obviously a spiritual connection. That's a part of the the core identity of the tribal cultures and the hispanic cultures that have been here for thousands and hundreds of years respectively actively. I wonder if i wanna start with both of you to talk about how the trump administration's policies as they affect new mexico's land and walter and wildlife do they feel personal to you because of that connection absolutely they absolutely feel personal to me and i take that personal personal emotion to congress with me when i am defending our mine and ben raise bill to protect chaka canyon for example right <hes> against gas and oil drilling for a ten mile radius so that area needs permanent protections my <hes> the my ancestoral homeland part of my argument in committee when we were passing the bill through markup was my ancestors are buried there thinking thinking that that might help people to understand the significance of it <hes> we didn't get one republican to vote that bill through committee so so yes yes it is personal to me when i think about the <hes> gosh the centuries of drought and famine that my ancestors persevered through because they had the idea that they needed to sustain themselves so that generations down the line would move into the future and and be their legacy congressman look the significance of the summit <hes> that has come together here highlighting how we have to be working together not just to protect these wildlife corridors but protecting our public lands and access. I'm here in the community where we are today the the significance associated with the pueblo leaders with house pueblo. If you've hadn't if you had a chance to go visit taus pablo really to pay your respects there. There's there's something spiritual usual magical serene about just taking a few footsteps and stopping and just taking it in the magic of the return of blue lake another important protected areas sacred site and as congressman holland pointed out the significance of legislation solution to protect chuckle canyon in the greater area surrounding it <hes> as deb said her ancestors go back thirty four thirty five generations nations time immemorial <hes> active in eight hundred a._d. Think about the significance of that but growing up and and being able to get into the outdoors whether it was camping or fishing or hiking <hes> getting on my bike <hes> exploring new things learning what to eat and what not to eat <hes> careful when you're out there <hes> but it's about that education and what i appreciate from <hes> the pueblo leaders in friends that i've <hes> <hes> called friends of mine entire life they help me understand the magic of that medicine chest and so while many of us may go into the bathroom war in two of a utility room and open up a door and there's all your medicine and cabinet think about that medicine chest is with the gathering of herbs of healing of the spiritual place that can't even describe the magic of spirituality <hes> the special place that we call home in new mexico but especially here in towse and all of our public lands that were so honored to work together to protect you are both in an unique positions to lead on wildlife and environmental issues as an assistant speaker as a subcommittee chair on <music> on natural resources share real quickly your priorities on the legislative level for new mexico's land and water. Are you mentioned chaco canyon. What else is on on your shortlist right. Well making it impossible for any president to take a pen and chop off a big swath of our public lands another thing right. We want those public lands intact for every single person to enjoy. I like to see a fully fund full funding of the land and water conservation fund <hes> <hes> and you know i have been very very outspoken about no border wall because the border wall in and of itself alf is it hampers the ability for wildlife to sustain itself as well so all of those you know look there's is no one to speak up for the animals and the fish and the plants in the forest we have to do that and and it's pretty obvious to me that we're here because because of our environment right we destroy it that means the destruction of future generations so so those are some of my priorities and and proud and happy to stand up for them. Well i want to thank god chairwoman holland for the work and the advocacy that she brings everyday <hes> she is one of the newly elected chairs of a subcommittee as a new member of the house of representatives. <hes> that's an incredible feat and responsibility <hes> in previous congresses you we don't see new members have that leadership role as one of the leaders <hes> congresswoman holland <hes> brought <hes> several other leaders to new mexico because the honor of hosting german greenhow. Oh who's the chair of the full committee on natural resources alan lowenthal also subcommittee chair <hes> and congresswoman holland chair holland and i did a site visit out to choco where we didn't just take in the history to sacred secred nature of that important place but we also went out to where there was some methane plumes now you can smell it when you're out there but the groups that came together with us actually shared with some cameras that allowed us to see it while we smelled it we had field hearings in new mexico co that chairwoman holland helped lead. We took that back. She led the effort in the house of representatives with the hearing on the protection of chaco canyon <hes> as the assistant speaker. I make sure that i raise my voice when we're in those meetings where encouraging the chairs of the committees to prioritize these important public land <hes> legislation <hes> packages well <hes> we worked together <hes> earlier this year when we pass to john dingell lands package act which personally family authorized land water conservation fund protected over a million acres including right here in new mexico right here in the house <hes> areas right in the real grounded on nor to down with a desert peaks in the oregon mountains and so that's how we can work together you raise your voice. You lend your advocacy you collaborate your partner and you make sure that you build to that table as large as you can until you're able to get these packages across the finish line. We're going to get back to l. w. c._f. Because as as we all know were we're halfway there in terms of authorising but not guaranteeing funding but i want to start with wildlife corridors because we are here at a wildlife migration summit. There is a bill pending wildlife corridors conservation act <hes> first of all either of you just walk us through briefly what that bill does does and then more importantly. What do you think the chances are of getting some major wildlife bill through in this congressional session so the the critical nature of this package. Is it protects the it does what it says. It's a wildlife poor door conservation act so think of the movement went heard or species as they're going from one area to another <hes> as we continue to see build out an encroachment challenges with a climate change changing terrains raines ecosystems in drought those wildlife corridors are quickly disappearing <hes> they're they're being infringed upon if you will <hes> and as deb said there's no one out there <hes> if you will at least we've figured it out yet <hes> to understand the spoken word from the creatures <hes> that we the <hes> call our friends and that we're not <hes> to to protect <hes> many friends and family as well that <hes> extend that a branch out to even been call family as well with our four legged friends or those that flyer those swim <hes> and so that's what this package will do it ensures that we're gonna protect corridors we identify identify these corridors that we also work with tribal leaders with pueblo leaders and we work to maintain that wildlife corridor for the movement of those animals across these protected lands public public areas tribal land pueblo lands as well. It's an important package..

"Representatives controlled by Democrats just passed a bill that would more than double the federal minimum wage from seven twenty five an hour to fifteen Bucks an hour while the fight for fifteen as it's known has become a liberal rallying cry even some Democrats acknowledge a minimum wage that high would hurt some businesses and probably kill some jobs it's a story by Rick Newman senior columnist at Yahoo finance Rick what are you hearing comes from an interview I did with John Hickenlooper he's the former governor of Colorado and up to people who don't know the names of all twenty something up Democrats running for president he's one of them a chain of Abu pubs in Denver and so he's got a history lesson yeah experience as a business owner so I asked him you know the house of representatives just passed a bill that would raise the national minimum wage to fifteen dollars kit is at work we should know it's not workable at all so he thinks that what would make sense would be a minimum wage that is regionalized in other words you don't have a one size fits all number it's just a difference by location based on what the cost I mean it but I think people normally understand that I mean it's a lot more expensive to live in New York City that it is in little rock Arkansas so why should I have to say minimum wage and he thinks that a more realistic number could be between eight and ten dollars and then you might say set up over time to get to fifteen depending on where you are but and then the record is pretty clear I mention it comments will tell you that if the cost of labor goes up then businesses are going to hire fewer people and we've actually seen that instances such as in the Seattle area when the minimum wage one out it does you know there are fewer jobs at that level because it just cost more so businesses you know they don't do exactly what you want to do which is just Hey everybody more they make decisions say well we're gonna hire fewer people so you have to take that into account rights all right so the possibility of this passing in Congress first of all zero zero right I mean at this point given the current make up yeah I think that's right so the house of representatives passed a bill that would raise the minimum wage to fifteen dollars but I they seem to be no chance the Senate which is controlled by Republicans is going to pass it the Democrats I mean the reason that passing this even though they know that it it's not going to become law is there staking out Kirk they want to be a party that stands for a fifteen dollar at minimum wage and most of the Democrats running for president not all there some exceptions but most of them do so yeah we should have a fifteen dollar minimum wage I think it's a lot easier to say that when you know it's not likely to happen because if we were to go to fifteen dollars overnight you for sure you would see you would see a slowdown in hiring and you know the argument is that you know kids teenagers you know getting the first job the I have a harder time finding a job and just getting into the work force and other things like that the Congressional Budget Office has studied this and said if we did raise the minimum wage to fifteen dollars reaching a lot of people would earn more money but it would cost it would cost almost two million jobs so yes some people earning more money but some other people earning no money because they couldn't get hired that's the problem the government really has hurt itself here to a certain extent right I mean I don't necessarily agree with the idea of government mandating what a weight should be however since they've done it but ignored it for well I don't know what ten years or more yes I am if you're going to do it at least maybe ought to consider cost of living adjustments too right that's the way to solve the problem so you're right the way this has worked in so that it is never the minimum wage the federal minimum wage has never been indexed to inflation so correct about what Congress has to vote every time it goes out you know they're going to push it up and I think it has not gone up in at least ten years the way to solve this problem others are actually straight forward to solve this problem the Congressional Budget Office just you get to do it this study estimated the effects of raising the wage to different levels and if you were to raise it to something like a weapon or twelve dollars you get much less disruption eBay there there's a number you could select where it would help people a little bit more money without actually costing many jobs or perhaps any jobs whatsoever it wouldn't be fifteen it would be lower than fifteen but if you sort of found that sweet spot in center on that number but today was even ten and then you indebted to inflation so it goes up every year in the by the same amount of rations or you could indebted to wage increases and look up by the same amount as wage increases we would have you would have a federal minimum wage that always wind up with inflation so clash would never have to vote on it again and you would also have predictability thanks Rick Yahoo finance
