Cheryl Chumley: Will Kevin McCarthy Become the House Speaker?

"You look at the politics that's being played right now on Capitol Hill. Kevin McCarthy does not have the numbers. We had congressman Ralph Norman on the show yesterday. He says he knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that McCarthy is not going to get to the magic number of two 18. What are you hearing out there? I'm here in mixed mixed signals, but I suspected that that uncertainty about the numbers is why Kevin McCarthy is coming forward. And taking a strong conservative stand about keeping Ilhan Omar off certain committees. And going after some of the other Democrats who have been loudly pro China and anti Israel over the couple last couple of years. So I think that's why he's coming out and making these public stands. But I've heard a mix that he does have the numbers that he doesn't have the numbers. I guess we'll just have to wait to see.

The Art of Retaliation

"I want to talk about an important principle in politics and it is the art of retaliation, the art of retaliation. Now, this principle came to my mind when Kevin McCarthy said recently, I, Kevin McCarthy, I'm going to remove Eric swalwell, Adam Schiff, and Ilhan Omar from their House committees. Now, we should note that this is a kind of an unprecedented, well, actually, no, it is a precedented step. But it is an unusual step because the general modus operandi, the way of doing business in the Congress is this. The majority party controls the committees. They appoint the chairman of the committees and the committees, by the way, are the mechanism through which legislation passes. Committee is a very important a judiciary committee, the ways and means committee and so on. And the majority party has the majority of members on the committee, but the minority party, in this case, the Democrats in the House would have the right to appoint their own members. But the Democrats decided last time around, to violate this kind of code of etiquette, if you will, and throw a prominent Republicans, notably Marjorie Taylor Greene, offer committee. Oh, she's an extremist. So extremist or not, the point is she's not being named by your side. She was being named by the Republican side. And the fact that the Democrats said, well, we have the power to do it, so we're gonna do it. It was very important and it is very important for Republicans to be like, well, you know what? Two can play at this game.

Can Republican House Candidate Turn Things Around in Minneapolis?

"Think that you may turn things around. How are you being received? Very well, in fact. What we have is what we call soft Democrats and independents who are recognizing that their families are not safe, that they have to come up with excuses to even come to Minneapolis. And when they do, they are on edge. They're recognizing, again, that they are being stressed out and strung out over the dollar and that they are recognizing that their future is grim. Minneapolis is not at all what it used to be. And we're recognizing now that it's because of the direct leadership and policies and decisions that have been made by progressive leaders.

Racial Politics in a White District

"I am so curious, give me, if you would, the demographic makeup of district 5. Because I'm trying to picture who would vote for such an angry hate filled woman. Is it, is it an ethnic issue? Explain to me your district. I love this leadoff question. This is fantastic. And I love to, this is always surprising people. So CD 5, all the districts in Minnesota, 717 to 718,000 people. Congressional district 5 is 63 percent white. Okay? Somalis and blacks combined. Only make up 16% of the district. Okay? 16. 16. That's it. So we have 7% Somali community. The other 9% is the black community, correct? And then the rest is dispersed between other ethnicities. So this district unlike what most people think is not heavily Somali. That's not who voted her in. White progressives have voted Ilhan in. That's actually how she got in. White progressive guilt.

I have to ask you the question I ask the Republican politicians who come on this show. Have you met today? Because I can't see it. You can say I'm in my conservative talk show host bubble, but I'm trying to find those Democrat thought leaders, members of Congress, whatever media types you want to classify the matters, who are sane, who you can have a discussion with or who are prepared to say, you know what Ilhan Omar did yesterday or the faking of the handcuffs by AOC or Maxine waters saying literally screw the Supreme Court. We're going to resist. Have you found people who are prepared to voice a little bit of dissent with their own political click? No, and I'll tell you, before I left the Democratic Party, the one of the things that I was writing about, and I was making phone calls and emails saying, look, you all are more conservative or even moderate Democrats, you are going to be run out of office. So if for no other reason for your own political survival, stand up to these people, radical elements of the Democratic Party. And they didn't. So I'll tell you in Oregon, my home state. There was a representative who had been there for many years. I think Schrader Schroeder is his name. Well, he got tossed out by a more radical member of his own party. And so you see that throughout the country, they are being tossed aside by the more radical elements, and they should have years ago taken the advice of most of us who are like, you are losing the party and you're going to lose the country because you deserve it. You're not standing up for sanity for this country and you're letting the more radical elements the violent elements and fundamentally the anti American elements of the left rise up. So they're paying the price. And frankly, they should.

And it's interesting, Benny, you've been in this for ten years. I've been in it for ten years. You know, kind of in the movement. And we've seen these kind of different chapters, if you will. But it seems as if there's a new attitude that is setting in. An attitude where we're not going to settle for anything less than victory. That we know who our enemies are and we're kind of in a non negotiable position. Your thoughts on what is the new right. So you said it excellently a couple of years ago at a private speech that you didn't give in public. You gave to just a couple of a couple of select people at some restaurant in Arizona. And you and I have been working together for a while and I traveled out there and you were just talking to some Friends of turning point USA. And you said, listen, if you see AOC on college campuses, tabling and walking around and being crazy and looking for some reason to be offended and relive 1968. That's going to be in Congress that will come to Congress. You said this before AOC. You said this before there was a squad before Ilhan Omar when it was kind of the fuddy duddy Jerry Nadler Democrat party.

They're so dopey, they pretended that they were handcuffs, so they put their hands, the cops are walking with them, kind of look at it and I'm like, what do you have your hands back there? We didn't handcuff you. Tucker Carlson had such a funny line last. There's a good chance for you to watch the show on Salem news channel. And you can see the video of AOC being escorted away as they sat down like dopes in the middle of the street to block the traffic. Because that's what a sitting congresswoman should do. Sit in the street to block traffic because you don't like a Supreme Court ruling, like the overturning of roe V wade. And so as she's being walked away, they don't have her in handcuffs. They don't need to put her in handcuffs. They're not going to restrain a congresswoman. Ilhan Omar and AOC are walking along with their hands behind their back as if handcuffed, but their imaginary

"I warned you that John's Merrick would be coming into New York City. John Merrick, the person, not the idea, the person the actual person, and he's sitting with me here in the studio. John, there's an infinity of things we could talk about. You recently saw a film about Charles De Gaulle that I would like to tell people. Okay. Now, any time a film comes out that's worth seeing, that's a rare thing. Yeah. So what is this film about? And most people listening, they're not going to remember de Gaulle. Well, I just want to lead with this. There's a campaign out to terrorize Christians in America into not being patriots and not being politically active. They've invented slurs, you know that people like you and to Souza. They call you election deniers. And there's a point to that. That's a dog whistle, because when you hear the word denier, people will think, Holocaust denier. And so the goal in crafting a dog whistle like that is to make people who question the 2020 election somehow psychologically to associate them with people who deny the Nazi murder of the Jews. Liberals in the media and like Ilhan Omar. And sniveling servile Christian collaborators, Vichy Christians, like David French and many others. Have come up with another dog whistle. Christian nationalist. And they're hoping that you think white nationalist, their hoping that you think somehow on some irrational but powerful level, you feel an aversion to being identified as any kind of nationalist because that's like a white nationalist, which is like the Nazis, which is like, well, it's just curl up in a fetal ball and you rock back and forth until they give you your meds. Right. It's just a slur.

Ilan Berman Assesses the Western Response to Ukraine

"Ilhan, we've talked about the danger of a landlocked Ukraine. Let's talk about our actions to date. I've said $40 billion worth of aid doesn't make a lot of sense in terms of cash to Kyiv, especially when it has line items for $7 billion for the State Department and undisclosed amount of money for the CIA. That doesn't look like a to Kyiv, having spoken to cramming knowledge with people who've worked in the Ukraine, what they need is what is zelensky's calling for, which is weapons, which is weaponry, ammunition, wheeled vehicles to move their troops and also training of their reserves in safe locales like the Baltics and Poland. Will you give us your assessment of the west on blocks response to this war in the last three months? Right. Well, I mean, there's a lot there to unpack. But listen, I think generally I'm positive on the western response. I do have some of the same misgivings as you, which is because our politics I may say charitably have become intolerably stupid. Not ours. America's not ours, America's politics. D.C.'s. There is this false equation that if you somehow question the line items in the $40 billion that you are not your put inside. Putin side or you're somehow not supportive enough of Ukraine. But the more nuanced argument is, I firmly believe sunlight is the best disinfectant. I want to see what's sort of what is allocated, whether it's actually going to be useful to Ukraine. And accountability. Absolutely. But can I just flip on that? That's stupid politics. There's also the flip side of that, that if you're pro as we are supporting what I see is Ukraine 1776. Suddenly you're an interventionist neocon. That's

Many of you celebrating Easter by an extraordinary burst of donations to help get Ukrainians out of Ukraine. Wow. What a story I have to share with you in just a little bit here. But Ilhan Omar shared a video that she saw evidently on social media. And there were people on an airplane and a person with the guitar and they were singing. And that's it. They were singing, apparently Christian, a Christian song. Over Easter weekend, she retweeted that, and she said, I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane.

Who Is Ilan Berman of the American Foreign Policy Council?

"For those who haven't heard our earlier discussions here on America first, will you just give them the potted introduction who Ilhan is and what the FPC does. Sure. So AFC is a think tank. Everything tank has an area of focus. We spend a lot of time working with Congress because candidly, ideas begin in very few places. And members of Congress need cutting edge accurate sort of impactful information about what's going on around the world. So we have a stable of experts that cover everything from Iran to Russia, to radical Islam, to China, to China, space, and the goal here is to inform policy to help them craft better policy, but more than anything else. It's to sort of to amplify the efforts of policymakers who are trying to defend American national security, promote American foreign policy interests. And your family background, where do you hail from originally? Well, all over, but my parents were Soviet refused next, right? So explain that to him for those who are Cold War warriors like me, what was a refuse neck. Right. So I refused it was someone who usually Jewish as my family is, but not only, but a refusal was somebody who during the Soviet Union for whatever reason for political purposes for religious freedom purposes applied to exit the Soviet Union and they were denied. And they were essentially made non people. They weren't allowed to have party affiliation. There weren't allowed to work in certain jobs, and only through the pressure of the United States government, including people like senator Henry Jackson, there was enough pressure that was placed on the Soviet Union that the Soviets opened up the doors and allowed refuse, including pretty significant wave of Jewish refusing to

How Seriously Should We Take the Left?

"Listen. Hi, dinesh. I was listening to your segment on AOC when she was saying that Texas will be between blue. Your reaction war with me very much. We have underestimated the left for four too long. We let them take over what we watch in CV, what is thought to our children in schools, and so much more, just because we keep dismissing their ideas as Looney and ridiculous. May I remind you that Donald Trump won Texas by less than 6% in 2020. Compared to 9% in 2016, Ted Cruz won his 2018 reelection by less than 3%. Compared to 16% in 2012, the numbers don't lie, so my recommendations to conservatives like you and libertarians like myself is to take the left seriously as crazy as some of them may sound. Things the next question. Good question. Let me start by saying, you know, first of all, I think that I think that you aren't something important. And that is that even figures like AOC, Ilhan Omar. Well, we've got to be a little careful in flatly dismissing them because they have strong constituencies. They mobilize and motivate a lot of people. In fact, my daughter, Danielle, was saying that she kind of studies AOC because she believes that AOC is playing a very kind of cunning game. And that AOC, whether she's right or not, is kind of beside the point because what she is is a, she's an actress. She's someone who's able to, she has an innate sense of theater and drama. She knows how to draw the camera and she knows how to make something appear cool. And very often for young people, it's more important to conform with the cool than it is to be convinced by an argument. So let me say right up front that I think that you are on the money on that aspect. What do you think about the broader point about the fragility of Texas? Oh, well, I think he's right on point. And I've never agreed with you on that one. And he basically said, don't dismiss these people. Don't dismiss beto. And when I heard that bethel was running for governor, I not that I think he'll win, but I do think that he fools a lot of people.

"To talk about the midterms. And we don't want to be complacent about the midterms. And of course, the Democrats have shown that they know how to manage the election better than we do. We might be better at campaigning. They're better at election management. And I think you know what I'm talking about. Nevertheless, this is not a time by the way to sit home and to wallow and despair, the opposite is true. This tremendous opportunity, and it's time to well, politically speaking, metaphorically speaking, stick a fork in Biden. Yes, right in the buttocks. And I think if we do this effectively, he's not even going to be able to go come on man. He's going to be like, so the issues are lining up on our side. So I'm going to talk about what are the little sharp ends of that of that fork. Well, the first one is Law & Order, safety. The Democrats came up with defund the police, they're trying to run away from it. We never stood to fund the police. Well, I guess you did. It wasn't just the squad. It wasn't just AOC and Ilhan Omar. The mainstream of the Democratic Party embraced the slogan, many police departments were defunded if not demoralized. That is issue number one. I think it's a powerful issue for Republicans in the midterm number two. China. Now, foreign policy is not often a big issue, but kind of selling your soul to China is. And I think what we have with the bidens is being compromised by China, making deals with China that result in transfers of assets under the table to the Biden family. I think that's a powerful issue, and then that is then reinforced by the fact that Biden's taken a very soft view toward China. Notice he was rattling the war drums about Russia, but a far more dangerous power today China is being is really being coddled. The Olympics are kind of a good example. The United States has a symbolic diplomatic boycott, but no all our athletes are there at the Olympics. So this was a kind of ineffective sanction if you can even call it that.

Canada Emulates China as Big Banks Crack Down on Truckers

"Just disgusted by what I'm seeing happening right now in a country that I think we all thought was more aligned with us and it really is. Although these days, I worry about the U.S. and that is Canada. And what we have learned today and this comes to us via a report out of Bloomberg is that the Canadian bankers association apparently confirmed that the royal Canadian mounted police has alerted banks to a list of names and made it available. In fact, christia Freeland, who's now the finance minister, used to be a contributor back at CNBC. When I worked there, she's now the finance minister and she's saying that some accounts have already been frozen. So they are making a very concerted effort here to try and shut down these freedom convoys as they're now known. Truckers who are saying, wait a second, candidate, you've gone too far. You have stolen effectively our right our ability to take care of ourselves and our family with all onerous mandates. And enough is enough. And they have the right to say that. And thus far had very peaceful protests, but because problematic because it's inconvenient because it's going to threaten supply chains according to prime minister Trudeau, they don't want them there. They don't want them protesting. And instead of sitting down with them and maybe some leadership from the freedom convoys and saying, okay, how can we work through this together? Maybe we ought to rethink some of these ridiculous mandates that have made it so difficult for the people of Canada, including the working people of Canada instead of doing that, the answer is to somehow either docks them, as we've seen, even Elon Ilhan Omar was upset about that one, saying, okay, enough is enough. You don't need to dox people because they gave 200 bucks to the freedom convoys. I mean, when Elon Omar is siding with the truckers, I think that Trudeau indeed has quite a problem. But basically, these are emergency orders that they've put into effect. And they would affect every participant in the Canadian financial system. So banks investment firms, credit unions, loan companies, securities, dealers, fundraising platforms that would be like the GoFundMe, et cetera. As well as payment and clearing services and they're basically saying, okay, these people have to have their accounts frozen. You need to report any activity to the Royal Canadian mounted

"ilhan" Discussed on Mike Gallagher Podcast

"A not insignificant amount of them flip the. So, you know what? If an officer wants to quit over this? Let them. Let the individuals don't care about public safety, stop being in charge of public safety. It is really that simple and by the way. That is a walkie drop. Isn't that funny? He brings out a radio like the kind police officers using their patrol car and he drops the mic. That's a mic drop. Look at me telling off America's police officers. This Brit, who's got such a thick accent. I can barely understand him. Lecturing police officers in America about how they should what they should or shouldn't put in their bodies. The audacity of the left and the hatred that contempt they have for law enforcement is stunning. And listen, they say the quiet parts out loud. They don't hide it. Ilhan Omar isn't hiding it. This piece of work in Minneapolis. Listen to this. She's at a town hall meeting over the weekend. Now, the irony of this is beyond beyond epic. You know, she of course is the perfect mix of satire absurdity, parody, shamelessness. We know what radical kooks like Ilhan Omar think about the police, Minneapolis, the city council after George Floyd, the Minneapolis city council voted as I recall unanimously to disband the police department. Get rid of them all together. Kumbaya, y'all, we're gonna have social workers with feathers to tickle the bad guys, I guess. We don't need cops. So now Ilhan Omar is faced with recognizing Minneapolis has a problem. It's called skyrocketing crime, murders. Violent crimes, robbery, carjackings. Well, what does a defund the police zealot like Ilhan Omar blame for the rising crime? What we must also recognize is that the reduction in policing currently in our city and the lawlessness that is happening is due to two things. One, the police have chosen to not fulfill their oath of office. And to provide the public safety or owed to the citizens they serve. All right, it's documented. But even before that, it was documented. I mean, the average police department is almost dysfunctional. Police department in our state and probably in the country. The second world is that there has to be accountability. And someone that is actually taking responsibility for what the police does and destination. And that doesn't exist. In this moment. I don't like ad hominem attacks, but there is a special kind of stupid behind that that attitude. You know how stupid you have to be, you're the one that shut the house on fire, lady, you wanted to disband the police department. You're not supporting the cops. Yeah, they're quitting. 'cause you don't, you're community doesn't support them. The city council isn't supporting police. You're surprised that they're quitting and mass, they're retiring, you're surprised to that. Oh, now you're blaming them for rising crime? Over to registered banshee writes this sure feels like Ilhan Omar shut the house on fire and is now blaming the firefighters for not being able to contain the blaze. You can not blame police. They're human beings. You're asking them to risk their lives for you. When you don't offer them the shred of support and your city council in Minneapolis, has actively tried to destroy the department. Oh, well, imagine that. Police officers aren't real enthusiastic about going to they're going to their jobs. Wow, what a shock, but she, this is the progressive agenda. You got to believe, maybe she's not as stupid as I think she is. Maybe this is exactly the goal. This is the endgame. So here's what she's doing. Now Ilhan Omar has the has the nerve to stand at a podium. And cite the high crime rates that she helped cause. While blaming the police, the police department that she wants to defund. Now that's rich. That's rich. What 806 5 5 Mike? I gotta get your reaction to this. I gotta get your reaction to John Oliver. And the crowd whooping and hollering and laughing and mocking police officers do know that the vaccination rate in New York City with the biggest police police department in the country. And incidentally, even that triggers the snowflakes on their yoga mats. They don't like police, they don't like a police presence. But then again, they don't know what to do when people are getting killed in cities like Minneapolis. St. Petersburg, Florida. Skyrocketing murder rate. This morning, big story and axios about crime rates. Catapulting in cities all over America. If you're not going to support the police, if you want to actively defund them, what do you think the end result is going to be? And guess what, Ilhan Omar, you don't get to cite the high crime rates when you help close it. There's a real real. Risk here. There's real damage being done. There are real people being hurt and killed by Democrat led cities and states and communities. Real people are being damaged. And we all know it. This is not a real businesses are being businesses got burned to the ground in Minneapolis. Do you know how.

It's a transformational piece of legislation. That god heimer group is trying to block or gut. If it passes twenty twenty one will be the most significant year of legislative activity at least since nineteen sixty five. And what's amazing is that it's getting barely any attention. Congresswoman omar welcome to deconstructed dates back with un. So just to just a start on the drama on on capitol hill this this week the latest deal that leadership is cut with this. This crew of rebels got heimer. Screw of rebels is that there will be vote on september. Twenty seventh on the bipartisan infrastructure. Package you know part of got hammers effort to kind of strip progressives of leverage one. Do you think that you guys will be able to get the reconciliation package done by then to if not are progressive still willing to vote as a bloc to keep the two track strategy going in other words to vote down that bipartisan package. Until both already. I mean this. This deal release a sense of congress. It's not really binding and you know that fine line is still going to be fluid. I think it's going to be really important for us to move forward to do the work on the reconciliation package and depending on when that gets done. I believe we will ultimately have the opportunity to move the two together not lose that leverage and so is there a change in the progressive caucus willingness to to vote down the strategy for the progressive caucus has been to organize for these packages to move simultaneously to get there and that strategy still remains in place. Gotcha so how do you think that. The events of the last couple of days affect the overall trajectory of the package. I have never seen in all my time covering congress so much anger at a group of democrats from other democrats. And how how do you think that influences the the process at all i mean..

"Wondering what lessons will be. Learned what lessons can be learned but as you just pointed out like we can't get people to understand why some in these countries and might not like the united states right like the most core seemingly easy to understand question. We can't get that across. So i am not expecting much coming out of this and i don't know if you saw the interview that the national security adviser had with Some reporter i think c-span implying you know that this is getting out of afghanistan is representative of something like a biden doctrine that he is going to be less interested in nation building in those sorts of things. We'll see. I don't know i don't know how much we can expect that any other member of government has learned from this. You know they might be willing to pull out. They know that it's unpopular. I mean just listened to his listen to biden's rhetoric on on china no doesn't mean that biden is going to take the same approach to china that we did with afghanistan. I mean that would be incredibly stupid. I mean especially considering china's a country that's been building up its military capability for quite some time now but even if we don't engage in an actual physical war with with china and it's limited to a so-called cold war that by itself is disastrous when we're dealing with the biggest threat to national security which is climate change. You need cooperation and collaboration with all countries all major countries certainly that includes russia that includes. China doesn't mean that you have to engage in a love affair with them but you have to find a way to diplomatically collaborate with them to war like took it in some way mitigate the biggest threat to national security and by the way. It's not just me saying that. Climate change is the biggest threat national security. The pentagon says the climate change is the biggest threat to national security. You guys are worried about refugees now from afghanistan climbing refugees. We're already seeing that today but Climate refugees that's going to explode in in coming years but back to the weaponry that the taliban now has hold of so vice reported that they're experts who are keeping track of these weapons and how much they're being sold for on the black market and they are being sold on the black market so not only is going to be using these weapons they're also selling them and so Mitchell poor fellow Says that already. Prices are dropping on the american style. end four assault rifles and other weapons systems widely distributed to the afghan national army. And that's according to dubai based security researcher studying the question on contract for regional governments. Who asked not to be named for obvious reasons. the endless stockpiles of weapons seized by the taliban as they took over the country will end up on regional markets because collectively afghanistan is already awash in light and medium weapons and there are some videos going around showing the taliban kind of taking inventory of the. Us made weaponry that was given to the afghan national army. That no longer exists so while you're looking at there that's what our taxpayer dollars funded and provided to a military that no longer exists in afghanistan government that no longer exists in afghanistan pistols to. Yeah.

"Hold up being an interview actually within the last couple of hours saying they thought it might be weeks or months or possibly even a couple of years. None of them seem to think it would last forever. So in theory you take that stuff back to the extent that you even can one sits in the hand of the security forces but then you assure that the fall will be even slower or you leave it hoping that that buys a little bit more time but then it almost certainly be taken over. We really got the absolute worst situation. Which is it didn't by any time anyway and then it was taken right. It was taken exactly also. I don't think enough. Attention has been paid to the faulty intelligence from the pentagon. How did they think that the government that was being propped up by the united states would have any staying power any lasting power. Clearly they were either lying to the american people and to the government or they just had faulty intel which both things can be true. Of course i mean we know about all of the drone strikes that were carried out with faulty intel. But it's okay because all those civilians who died were just considered collateral damage. Right of course by one other thing. That's interesting when the story of the taleban taking over kabul broke there were videos of them in the presidential palace and one of the taliban members happened to be a gitmo detainee so i share that little piece of information with you because all of our actions lead to a reaction all of our actions abroad whether we feel it as americans are not lead to some sort of consequence and i think that what are the biggest mistakes americans can make is assumed that says is happening abroad. It's happening far away. It has no impact on us but it does so next time you hear clowns like bill. Maher questioned why muslims in other countries hate us. Understand that when we're bombing innocent civilians when innocent people are losing their family members or their own lives. I mean entire communities become radicalized against us doesn't mean that they all become part of insurgent groups or anything like that some of them do of course but understand it like you can't just go around brutalizing people assume that like no. We're the good guys. Why do people hate us so much wiser so much hostility toward the united states. We go in and we destabilize entire countries and then when there's any backlash at all we pretend like we did nothing wrong. Well i know you know since we're marking A major turning point in these this decades long history between the us in afghanistan. We're obviously.

I think that there are a lot of wonderful people in this country. When you see this kind of stuff it's it goes beyond embarrassment. I mean it's just like this. Government represents us and i'm not just talking about the by an administration the us government represents americans overall and think about the amount of brutality that we've engaged in through our foreign policy the fact that we're still implementing crippling sanctions against countries iran after our government decided to pull out of the iran nuclear deal accept at three point five million afghan refugees over the years and their economy is completely and utterly destroyed because of us sanctions. Like all of this pain and suffering that we're spreading across the globe. Like i feel a lot of shame about that. So i don't know i don't want to be i don't want to know what's in that cultural orientation class because i it's just crushing. All of this is crushing eighteen matched with an american resettlement agency. Nineteen multi-agency security. Check before leaving for the united states and then like finally they get to stay step twenty and they have to go through a final security check at an american airport so this is a vetting process that literally takes several years some dozens of steps and to treat this. As if we're do we're just we're we're going to have to reload information for batali but that's not. That's not what happens. He's lying. This is stephen miller is now. I felt a little bit of comfort after hearing the interview that you're about to watch so this was on cnn. It features an afghan war veteran named matt zeller. He did fighting afghanistan. his life was saved by an afghan individual and he feels a lot of responsibility to withhold the promise that the united states made toward the afghans assisting us in that war but better yet he has words. Let's just put it that way. For stephen miller let's watch. As far as i'm concerned he personally.

"Joining me. Now stephen miller former trump's senior adviser founder of america. First legal stephen again. We want to help the afghan afghans. Who helped us in a meaningful way verifiable way and there are many of those but should we trust the biden administration to carefully that these not only were not trust the bottom administration to do so. The simple reality is that we no longer are in control of the central apparatus in afghanistan to be able to anybody. The taliban has all of the control of the government now so the notion that people could just show up at a checkpoint in demand resettlement into the united states and we have any idea about their background their belief system where they come from and now that the us government has fallen. It's just an impossibility. Well i mean that was yet another example of how a man who literally worked for a presidential administration does not have the expertise. The knowledge The anything Toop serve in those kinds of positions He is an absolute moron. I mean there are only two possibilities here either. He's a moron and he literally doesn't know how the vetting process for refugees works or he's intentionally lying because he is a white supremacist or both. It could be both but who knows. Maybe this is a good opportunity. Maybe this is a good teachable. Moment for stephen miller maybe he's open to information about how our government works and how people are vetted if they're seeking asylum in the united states if they're trying to settle as refugees in this country because it's actually a very lengthy and difficult process. Let me share the details real quick and then john. I'll go to you. Because i is going to take a while though because there are twenty steps starting with registration not with the taliban okay registration with united nations. That's the first thing. A refugee needs to do interview with the united nations refugee status granted by the united nations if the united nations decided that this person doesn't fact deserve refugee status at that point referral for resettlement in the united states interview with the state department contractors. First background check higher level background. Check for some like syrian refugees. For instance then another background checks at this point we're dealing with the third background check and the refugees name is run through law enforcement and intelligence date databases for terrorists or criminal history. Some go through a higher level clearance before they can continue a third background check was introduced in two thousand eight free rockies but has since been expanded to all refugees ages fourteen to sixty five if they pass that portion of this vetting process they move onto step number nine first fingerprint screening photo taken. Then after that second fingerprint screening. Because you know the first time you do the finger their fingerprint might change might smudge who knows Then seven third fingerprint screening. The refugees fingerprints are screened against fbi and homeland security databases which contain watchlist information passed immigration encounters including if the refugee previously applied for a visa at a united states embassy. Fingerprints are also checked against those collected by defense department during operations in iraq. Specifically this applies to everyone but The article that i was reading was specifically covering iraqi refugees. And what they have to go through but understand. We're not having a conversation about like. Oh can we really rely on information from the taliban. That's all what the government does. That's not what this process relies on step number twelve case reviewed at united states immigration. I know there's there's twenty steps okay step. Some cases referred for additional review. So syrians have to undergo the additional review. And that's all because Syrian refugees became incredibly politicized Toward the tail end of obama's second term for political reasons purely political reasons. There's nothing that indicates a syrian refugees are more dangerous than other refugees so fourteen extensive in person interview with homeland security officer. I apologize john now. Jump in because obviously this is taking too much time. And i feel bad that you're being filibuster. I've just been listening to it. I've already given up on trying to get into the country. So i can only imagine how difficult is actually going through it. look So yes it seems now. Absurd to think that like there was like a notebook in an office in kabul that had all the data and we lost it so i guess we can't do it anymore but the good side of this is Assuming we can get the video to stephen miller I think this is going.

"Schools. That's that's america is not going to be the people that are that are gonna care what what happens to people in afghanistan or suffering and it. It's very predictable. I wished that joe biden was stronger in the face of it. The word coming out from the white house that he's terrified of being criticized like he could take in five one family from afghanistan. they would do hundreds of days of coverage of it. So you just need to do the right thing like someone was interesting in the chat like thanks to trump and republicans. Didn't we clear out like a five hundred thousand people last year. We got room coming up every day. Thanks to governors and places like florida and texas five six hundred people dying needlessly every single day so talking to me about room about replacement. The whole thing is just so absurd so two decades of needless suffering and we figured out. We're finally going to pull out. But i think we can make it as bad as possible along the way. Yeah i mean. We're we're very good at bungling anything related to foreign policy. We gotta take a break. But we're not done with this topic. the angle focusing on stephen miller disgusting comments on laura ingraham show Need to be discussed and luckily it's not just the two of us who are pushing back We have someone who's trying to help with the refugee crisis.

"Have the tapes for media matters. We know what he was saying about the iraqis about them being semi literate primitive monkeys. Who don't know how to use toilet paper and folks. He's just an old school racist. That's all he is the others will try to make it about politics or about national security or whatever but he's fairly clear he doesn't want them here because he thinks that they're dirty he would. I'm sure you would expand that. Even farther he is a rich elitist white individual the vast majority of white people. He wouldn't wanna be caught dead in a you know a small room with but definitely if you're coming from afghanistan. He just doesn't want you here because he hates people that don't look look. I'm not interested in hearing anything regarding national security from anyone who justifies and defends. What happened at the nation's capital on january. Sixth people who think that was totally fine. People who watch those videos of capital police officers Being attacked the way they were including one of them who nearly got shot by his own gun until one other person intervene and prevent it from happening like people watch that video. Okay and i'm talking about fox news pundits. I'm talking about people. Like charlie kirk and then turned around and said like no that was totally. There was nothing wrong with what happened that day but then they fear monger about afghan refugees people who assisted the us military in afghanistan people who in some cases actually protected. us soldiers during that two decade-long failure of a war. I mean that's what these people are. Ill responded to the garbage that we just shared with you in those videos. Let's hear what she had to say. There are people who have helped us in this mission. There are people whose lives are going to be at risk and we have to do everything that we can to bring them to safety. And we've done this many. At times where we have evacuated people airlifted them into safe spaces so that we can properly vet them and have them come to the united states as very refugees. I know a little bit about that. You know. I know what it's like to be a child in a family scrambling for safety in war-torn. I know the rigorous process. You go through to get better as a refugee. We are the most vetted people who come to the united states. The process is long and he doesn't just end when you arrive on the shores it continues for years until you are eligible for citizenship at five years of entrance and so i really hope that people understand that. There is a certain promise that we've made and we can't break that promise. And there's not a promise that the united states made but it's also promised that are needle allies have made. It's a promise that neighboring countries should fulfil and we have to do everything to make sure that there is a multi national coalition leading this effort now unfortunately There really isn't much of a coalition of leading this effort You look at the countries involved. The countries that have responded to calls to take in refugees. The united states might take in about twenty thousand. I mean when you consider our total population. Twenty thousand is nothing for anyone who's terrified of afghan refugees. You're not even going to notice okay. You're not even going to notice and it's going to take years and years for them to be able to get approved to resettle here in the united states. You look at a country like iran which yes does share a border with afghanistan. They've already taken in three point. Five million afghan refugees. That is a problem that we created as the united states. We have implemented crippling sanctions against iran. There people are suffering as a result in the middle of this pandemic and they've still agreed by the way to take more afghan refugees. Now they're hoping that They can find a way to repatriate people in a safe manner but they've already got three point five million afghan refugees and their country now in their country. That's being crushed by the united states as we speak after they follow through on their side of the deal regarding the iran nuclear deal that trump of course then turn around and ripped up because he wanted to escalate potential war with them. So that's what the united states is doing. That's what iran is doing. All of the fearmongering that we hear about iran in the us press. I mean it's just it's shameful. The uk has agreed to taking twenty thousand refugees over several years The details of that are a little unclear to me. Like why over several years. Like do you. Do you take like a couple thousand. The year i i don't know but they've agreed to twenty thousand but other than that. I don't see any reggie canada. Kenneth said that they were going to canada. Yes is going to accept some refugees so credit where credit is due. But it's it's not nearly enough right and then the other thing i wanted to just quickly mention is that you know you have like turkey is fortifying. Its borders the way. We're not taking anybody. The united states reached out to uganda and was like yo. Can you guys take some afghan. Refugees were shelter. Uganda richest country in the world is reaching out to poor countries and and pushing the problem that we created onto to that. I mean it's just it's so disgusting. It's absolutely just randomly looked up like what's the population of mar vista. It's sixty thousand. It's like talking about a tiny fraction of that spread across the entirety of the united states. It's ridiculous and So ron you said. Three point five million. I had an overestimate in my mind of their population. There like an eighty million person country. Where many times. It's just ridiculous. And like joe biden is at least in theory doing what they Belatedly pretend to they wanted to be done under trump. they supposedly wanted to pull out of afghanistan because trump wanted to do that. So he's doing that and what they've landed on is a movement and we're seeing more and more examples.

It's it's it's incredible. I mean the i. I suppose we shouldn't be surprised.

Now they're turning around and painting those who are fleeing the brutality of those groups as these dangerous people who might not even get vetted. The vetting process for refugees is insane. I mean there are twenty steps involved. It literally takes years and years for refugees to get accepted to the united states after that thorough vetting process so they're painting it as oh the united states government. They don't know what they're doing. They don't do the necessary vetting. Did we even make any promises to these people we did. But i mean just think about what. The trump administration did to the kurds in syria. The kurds assisted us in defeating isis in syria and then after one phone call with the turkish president air one. Don't trump decided. Yeah we're going to. We're going go ahead and pull troops out of this region of syria essentially paving the way for turkish troops to come in and butcher the kurds. That's what the united states did. We turned our backs on the kurds. We're now turning our backs on Afghans who who assisted us in this failed war. And i want also play this video featuring charlie kirk who is again using white replacement conspiracy theories to push back against the notion that we might help people in their moment of desperation.

Well of an american military c seventeen cargo plane took flight amid chaos at hamad karzai. International airport afghanistan's capital kabul air force officials have not said how many people died in the episode monday but said the service was investigating the loss of civilian lives as a crowd of afghans desperate to escape the country after their government collapsed to the taliban climbed onto the planes wings and fell from the sky after it took off. These are people who are desperate to find safety but they're being painted as potential terrorists. So let's hear what they had to say about potentially taking in afghan refugees Here in the united.

Well i think the president believes that we shouldn't we shouldn't allow access to guns to those criminals who are currently illegally filing them from some dealers across the country and part of his announcement is taking steps to do exactly that but part of his announcement is also ensuring they're specific guidance to communities across the country to ensure that they have funding to get more community police around the country something that was supported by the american jobs plan That was support.

It's nonsense if they're not willing to do what it takes to ensure that they win in the midterm elections or at least maintain their majority in the senate in the midterms. Why are we even having a discussion about. When are we supposed to pack the courts. Is it going to be in between The infrastructure bill negotiations and the american families plan. Which will never happen is that we're supposed to happen. And i don't mean to be salty toward ed markey specifically right. He's just the one who made that comment. But that's a comment that shared by so many other democrats instead of focusing on that focus on maintaining your majority in the senate. You guys can do it. In fact republicans are defending twenty seats compared to fourteen for democrats including four open seats and two seats in states won by biden. They're also hoping to unseat democrats in georgia. Arizona and new hampshire allstate's carried by biden like they act as if losing the senate is a given it is guaranteed. You guys have a loser mentality if you think like that and it is guaranteed with that mentality so look a your contrast in a second but in terms of the comments about oh well. Let's expand the court. I don't even agree with that philosophically. And i'll tell you why because that is a case where i don't mind it would get rid of the filibuster and they're probably getting control and they pass all the things they want. Now why do i mind that. Even though they will be disastrous. It's because that's called democracy so don't vote for them okay But if we packed a course of now instead of having nine people there's twelve people well mcconnell could come in and go all right now. There's twenty five and so and they're all republicans. This is to get absurd real quick. Okay so number. One is a bad strategy number two. I don't even really that ideologically but number three the reason why they're proposing it in the first place is because they know that it's hopeless. They know that it's something to distract you. The democrats to distract you. Oh we are huffing and puffing we will pack the course no. You won't and by the way that hurt you. That's a rare democratic position that is not popular and so it's bad on every front.

Oh mcconnell says he's not going to see someone for two years no problem then challenge mark warner. He's the guy who flies under the radar total corporate democrat from virginia. I challenged mark warner. Why are you still working with the republicans. When they say they won't see a president biden's nominee for two years. Why are you working with those disingenuous liars on asking democratic mark warner and you know what will happen tons of headlines and in the beginning everyone in the media will yell at nina and then afterwards they'll go well. This is an interesting question. Why don't we go ask mark warner okay. And that's how you win.

La and we used to west. Clark junior to come out with t shirts you. We've been through so much. And i love you guys for supporting us and most importantly in the things where we go try to make a difference in the world and we also did a protest at cnn when obama during the aca debates decided to cave to republicans and drop the public option. So i remember that that was fun. we just wanted to the press. Just finally cover it. They weren't covering it so that's you big protests. That were really well. We have some from that but one of the one thing on that. It's because cnn had done a poll showing how the public option was and then the very next day turned around and said that it was unpopular. That's what it was even though it was their own poll. It was over seventy percent and we're like just can you report on your own poll. Can you please stop lying in constantly. About how progressives are unpopular their positions when your own poll indicates were overwhelmingly popular art anyways. More news all right in an effort in an effort to make americans so desperate that they have no choice but to take starvation wages at a company that abuses them red states have decided to prematurely cut off unemployment insurance to unemployed americans during the coronavirus pandemic. Now these You know Federal subsidies to kind of increase unemployment insurance for people in various states was part of biden's coronavirus relief package. It added an additional three hundred dollars a week for each person who is unemployed But you know the business community wants to pressure politicians and the gop is the first to bite and take the bait and so the governor of alaska iowa missouri and mississippi all voluntarily ended their states enhanced benefits over the weekend. The first of twenty five states that plan to end participation in the federal programs currently by the way the federal benefits account for an extra as i mentioned three hundred dollars per week a lifeline for unemployed workers during the covid nineteen pandemic. There are nearly three million people receiving the enhanced benefits in the twenty-five states ending the program. So this will impact. Three million americans and You know i i. I just think it's fascinating to see the difference between How progressives are responding to this and how corporate democrats are responding to this because Senator sanders bernie sanders Has said that federal law requires the us government to make sure workers continue to receive gig worker benefits created by the covid aid relief. An economic security act but president joe biden has given his blessing to the red state. Cutoffs in fact press secretary. Jen psaki who gets a lot of praise Said this during a fairly recent.

"Let's hear what he has to say. I think nancy pelosi should remove omar from the foreign affairs committee. This is an individual that has not once but on numerous occasions been antisemitic. Her own entire congress had to rebuke earned the last one. But she's just not anti-semitic. She's anti-american now. She's equating america to taliban to her moss. He's discrediting our greatest in the middle east. Israel the only democracy but the democratic party and the leader of that party speaker said on her sunday show that she did not review kerr. She thanked her so the democrats. Believe this message that is. What's in doubt for me. I will promise you this. If we are fortunate. Enough to have the majority omar would not be serving on. Foreign affairs are anybody. That has an anti-semitic anti-american view that is not productive and that is not right now. His interpretation of nancy pelosi's interview was inaccurate. Wow what a shocker. It wasn't great by the way. I didn't agree with nancy. Pelosi statements which we'll get to just a second. But i do want to remind the audience about the offensive remark that representative omar made. Because i don't find it offensive. She said this. We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the united states hamas israel afghanistan and the taliban. I ask secretary blinken where people are supposed to go for justice because the united states does not agree with the international criminal court and a probe into these rarely forces possibly doing war crimes against palestinians in the gaza strip. So if the. Us doesn't believe in that doesn't support that. How how exactly would the israeli government and the israeli forces be held accountable for that. That was her question and jake Pelosi actually did review bucur. Really quick political reported that pelosi's leadership team Released a statement. Rebuking the remarks and then later thanking omar for issuing a clarification and her clarification was simple. I'm not trying to you. Know say that hamas is or the taliban is equal to the united states or hamas equal to Disraeli government although all the parties mentioned clearly have engaged in possible war crimes and she wants to make sure that you know there's a fair system that looks into all of it. So i think kevin mccarthy i'm trying to figure out who does he sound like he sounds ridiculous. I'm just gonna make a fun point first before we get to the serious stuff and then i figured it out the guy from boardwalk empire so there was like a loser hanger on board. And you talk like this. Oh yeah okay. And he and. I was like who talks. Nobody talks like that. He sounds so silly was like distracted. It turns out i was wrong. Kevin mccarthy talks like that that's right exactly that's a good one. She's anti-american hey okay anywhere now into serious stuff So first of all the democrats are guilty here They needlessly through more under the bus themselves for no reason Twelve corporate democrats got together Pretending to be outraged by a existent anti semitism. So it and i could prove that. Let me. just ask those guys anybody. Of course the press will never ask them But she is clearly referring to cases in front of the international criminal court. You guys are democrats. Do you think that american israel should not be subject to the international criminal court as every other countries. Do you think we should be above law when we torture. People commit war crimes. Let's just say it's an easy question. Does your criticizing. You're you're saying what it's an anti semitic position to say that american. Israel's schipol international law on war crimes just like hamas and taliban so we're asking a simple question should we be above the law. Should we be allowed to torture you. Guys get republicans are in favor torture war crimes but you guys are democrats. They are in favor of those things. So let's just keep it real by the way. I have very good authority from a very good source inside washington that all of this was a stunt to distract from one of the corporate democrats corruption scandals and when he got caught in the cookie jar by the way david day. And it's josh gottheimer. Okay david dan. In the american prospect wrote an excellent story about how he's financed by some of the financial industry including the worst of the lenders charge up to three four hundred percent as that was going on all of a sudden squirrel. Omar made a comment. that is perfectly legitimate. But we're gonna to safety semitic now. What is the cost of that. Other than the truth and decency. The cost is it allows the republicans to pay all democrats as anti-american anti semitic etc and. The democrats willingly walked into that. It's not like they were like. Oh the republicans will probably let go. No they knew they were gift. Wrapping a present per kevin mccarthy mitch mcconnell donald trump matt gaetz et cetera. And they end marjorie taylor and they did because they thought rather smear the entire democratic party definitely ilhan omar who's probably the most death threats and yes it's definitely because of a race and religion and let's do it again. Let's double down. Let's be that monstrous just so nobody talks about our corporate donors so those who those corporate democrats are everybody who signed that letter is abhorrent absolutely porn so there is somebody who is guilty here. But it certainly ain't ilhan omar mccarthy look look mccarthy. Nobody surprised by politics. They're gonna do what they're expected to do as the opponents of the democratic party it's just that corporate democrats make it so easy for them over and over again. And so dash of cnn decided to ask pelosi about this about rebuking. Ilhan omar and. Here's what she had.

"A new associated press investigation has discovered that amidst all the gun violence that we've been facing in this country. The military certainly isn't making matters any better. In fact military in the two thousand early two thousands had essentially lost literally thousands of weapons and oftentimes had no idea that they had lost many of them. So the army couldn't say how it's beretta m nine got to new york's capital and alberta until the june of two thousand eighteen police Until the june two thousand eighteen police foot chase. The army didn't even realize someone had stolen the gun. Inventory records checked by investigators. Said the m nine was six hundred miles away safe inside fort bragg north carolina. So what what's up. What does nine millimeter. Beretta m nine like what's what's up with this gun. Well it turns out. It was actually connected to four shootings in albany my bat in albany new york and so this is actually a widespread problem that has basically gone unnoticed. By the military weaponry being stolen In some cases it's an inside job or low ranking soldiers will know about some vulnerabilities and hey the military's got a lot of weapons. They're not going to notice why not steal them and sell them on the private market now. An associated press investigation has found that. At least one thousand nine hundred. Us military firearms were lost or stolen during the two the the two thousand ten's with some re surfacing in violent crimes because some armed services have suppressed the release of basic information. The associated press actually is under counting underestimating. Just how many of these weapons have gone missing or have been stolen now. While the ap's focus was on firearms and this should concern you. Military explosives also were lost or stolen including armor piercing grenades that ended up in atlanta backyard.

"Gambling problem call 88853 to 3500. Since the beginning, and we have welcomed in immigrants and refugees over the generations, Ilhan Omar is somebody who has come into the United States. As a person fleeing a horribly violent reality in Somalia. She was a she was a refugee who came into the United States and found an amazing future. For her. Got educated went to college is a member of the Congress earns $178,000 a year as a Congress person representing Minnesota. But Ilhan Omar is no fan of that flag. No Fan of America, Ilhan Omar claims the United States commits quote crimes against humanity and engages in unthinkable atrocities like those carried out by Israel. Hamas. And the Taliban. Surely did. She said that, she said, We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crime against humanity, crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the United States, Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan and the Taliban. Now it's kind of interesting that, um That she would say that about the United States because as far as I'm concerned, this is new ground that's being broken by Ilhan Omar. Ilhan Omar isn't just going after the American flag, and Ilhan Omar is abandoning A certain analogy that the left has loved. Do you remember when George W. Bush was Hitler and then Dick Cheney was Hitler. And do you remember when Trump was Hitler? And Pence has said, you know Hitler was the go to for a long time. We're seeing a little bit of growth here. In the invective being thrown at the United States. It's inaccurate. It is inaccurate invective. Because we are not like Hamas. We are not like the Taliban. We do not commit unthinkable atrocities were a universal force for good on the world stage. And we don't bring about subjugation, beheadings and things like that. We come in, and we we preserve life and protect communities. Ilhan Omar should know that We gave her shelter in a storm and you know who did it evil Ronald Reagan did that. But I think we're starting to see some progress here because they're not throwing the Hitler card anymore. Or the Nazi card. They're now trying to use more more diverse sources for outrage Hamas and the Taliban, It's still not accurate. But it's the sort of invective you'd expect. And I imagine. That if we take enough time to expose Ellen Omar The Stars and Stripes perhaps will eventually begin to turn the way she's thinking. We've got a lot of people that want to weigh in on a number of these topics, especially the flags triggering my, uh, my a gay. Let's go out and talk to Mitch in Eagan, Minnesota, right down the road from from Ilhan Omar. So to speak. Welcome to the show, Mitch. Yeah, thanks for reminding me about that, by the way, anyway, So if she was so triggered by a dozen, uh, flags with a couple of pickup trucks, How does he feel about Joe Biden's inauguration? Wasn't it like a million flags there, but nobody showed up for it. Yes, it was flags, but no people. That's exactly right. I mean, what do you What do you make of these people who are triggered by the flag? I mean, what do you What do you think? When you hear them say I'm triggered by the American flag? What? What? What? What? Sad lives. They must live. I don't understand it. To be perfectly honest. It makes zero sense, You know? I mean, you don't know you discovered to me. It makes zero sense to me. I can't figure it out again either. I appreciate you being out there mic'd all the best to you. Sorry about reminding you being down the road from Ilhan Omar Maria is south of San Antonio, Texas, Beautiful country. Welcome to the program. Ma'am. How are you? I'm fine. Thank you, sir. And thank you for listening to me. Yes, ma'am. I am a Mexican American housewife and I and someone needs to Let the president know that The manipulation of my people. Hispanic people, sir. For the pure purpose that's sole purpose. Gaining power and staying empower. Is that purest form of racism, the purest form of racism and and continues his Children dropped over the friend. Yes, babies thrown into the water. Children abandoned, crying or crawling. And the president doesn't lift up of fingers hurt. All right. One can conclude that that is any justice against the Hispanic community. There's someone next to sit down and talk to him. Because this is not right, sir. This is not right. And by the way, Yes, ma'am, I am a Mexican American house to my Yes, ma'am. My first language is Spanish. But sir. We had. I have relatives who landed in Normandy. I have relatives who fought with general pattern. I have relatives who were in Vietnam and Sir, we fly the American flag. God bless him. Not quite Believe me. I am not white. Thank you for listening to me. Please. Please start. Yeah, This is not right. God bless you, Maria and your family and and all the generations who stood up for this country and you made the single Most eloquent appeal that could be made. Because you understand what is going on. You have you have roots in In this country and that community and you understand what's going on. And I'm telling you folks When? When Kamala Harris laughs off going to the border or dismisses it with a chuckle or a cackle and says, I haven't been to Europe either. Do you know what that's saying to those folks who think Like Maria who feel like Maria that these Children are being Abused and are being used by the cartels and the human smugglers. Do you know what that sounds like to them? It says that child life is worthless. It. It's worth less. And what that means is that America is not living up to the ideal. Joe Biden wants to tell us that we're a systemically racist country. And give us lectures about that His vice president refuses to go see the people at the Mexican border. What is that system called? When you refuse to speak to the people most negatively impacted by this What is that? What is that called when you avoid a group of Americans. Based on based on what their heritage, their color their language. What is that called? As Joe Biden jets off to Europe for an excellent vacation. Kamala Harris comes back and declares victory. The question I would ask about Kamala Harris's victory. For whom? Over what.
