Brought to you by the loan experts I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Sean Davis CEO and co -founder of The Federalist. Sean I'm tired of losing. I'm sick of losing. I'm a big football fan. It's my weakness. I know I get a lot of hate mail for it. Oh it's woke. I don't care and one of the things about football is if you lose you get fired. At the RNC though if you lose you remain. Explain this to me Sean. I don't know it seems like that's almost a fact of politics anymore. Is it the watching these debates for example. Why on earth are people who hate us and hate people who read us and follow us and hate what we believe. Why are we letting them run these debates and attack our people. It would almost be like giving the Yankees front office the ability to interview anyone who's going to go and play for the Red Sox or like letting the Redskins and I still call them the Redskins and I always will. Letting the Redskins coach like pick who's going to play for the Cowboys. It's so dumb and yet we seem to do it debate after debate and year after year and I simply don't understand it at all. Yeah and so I want to play a piece of tape here. So Ronna McRomney was asked about her involvement in Virginia and it's always deflection. It's blaming other side and Larry O 'Connor who's a total superstar. I really like Larry. He's been in the movement for quite some time. He's so calmly and beautifully asked this question was like hey why wasn't the RNC more involved. His reaction afterwards is just epic. So let's play this piece of tape here. It's always somebody else's fault. It's never the national party's fault. Play cut 155. You don't let people lie about you and let it not let it go unanswered. Let it go unanswered and our candidates have got to do this. You can walk and chew gum at the same time. You can go and say this is where I stand. The Democrats are lying and now let's talk about crime, schools, border, fentanyl, and national security. I just want to clarify one quick thing though. The RNC had no involvement in these elections in Virginia per Governor Youngkin's request. We not well we were told in the summer they didn't need us that they had all the money and they were good. So now we've learned that the Virginia GOP chair Rich Anderson says that he asked the RNC to match the Democrats with one million dollars of a late cash infusion into the state. The RNC the only excuse they have is they can't raise money but that was supposed to be an thing. honest She said well we have no money but you're not raising any money because donors don't trust you the grassroots don't trust you. Sean help me understand. Yeah you've got two jobs as a as a party leader. You raise money and you set up state -by -state infrastructure so that the party can succeed which means by the way getting out to vote and setting up get out to vote infrastructure. So your your job is to supposed to raise a truckload of money and you're supposed to set up everything so that we can match the other side match the Democrats and how they get out the vote how they do ballot chase and all that. I've seen like I don't pay attention all that much to the fundraising so I won't I won't comment on that but it's been almost four years since a completely absurd election in 2020 when the Democrats just ran circles around us in in their absentee ballot chase their mail -in chase. I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence and that in states where we really need to win like Arizona and Georgia that either the state party or the national party is doing much of anything to make sure the Dems don't run in 2024 the exact same playbook they ran against us in 2020. So I'm I'm honestly kind of befuddled I feel like I'm watching office space watching the Bob's interview the employees and thinking what would you say you do here because I can't figure it out. So moving forward here Sean let's emphasize on the NBC news thing so we're after a very disappointing night and then Lester Holt and Welker are cross -examining our candidates just I want just the most objective way you could look at it what candidate do you think separated themselves from the other and who do you think missed an opportunity at that debate? Oh I thought Hveke was awesome I love how he came right out of the gate and trashed the moderators and basically said you're a whole bunch of Russian collusion hoaxers like who do you think you are that's how you handle these moderators and and I think Newt Gingrich was the one who who provided a perfect model for this he did it in during the 2012 primary where every time he got a question in one of these debates from a total left -wing hack masquerading as a journalist he just took him to town so you know your premise is garbage you're full of crap I think you're liars and here's what I'm going to talk about instead of the uh was fantastic um it's hard for me to say who the loser was in these because they kind of feel like loser debates to me and in the first place it's like watching the kids table so um I think the whole debate thing in it in and of itself we need to have a discussion about um but but I thought Hveke and the way he handled the moderators was great and I wish every single Republican from now until forever would treat these hack propagandists the exact same way. So I totally agree and I'll just say this you know Ron DeSantis received the first question and he gave his kind of typical and by the way he's the best governor in America I want everyone to be very clear I get hate mail when I say that Ron DeSantis remains the best governor in America he's not a good presidential candidate he's running a poor campaign it's the brutal honest truth and it's hard to watch he gives this fine answer you know I'm Ron DeSantis and people can't pay for gas and bah bah bye feel your pain yeah whatever Ron how awesome you were just you it was like a t -ball you could have went right after NBC news you could have just used them as the villain and the vague kind of picked up you know the trillion dollar bill that was laying right there and he called for Rana's resignation on top of it it was Rana's resignation the RNC is a bunch of losers we have a culture of losing and NBC news you guys are the complete worst and he got the headlines honestly he got the headlines across the head you know across the board and people really appreciate it because they want a fighter so let me ask you uh kind of shifting gears here Sean Joe Manchin not running for the senate the significance of this and how should we think about a potential no labels candidacy that is bubbling up with Millard Willard Mitt Romney and Mr. Manchin yeah so I got a kick out of Manchin's press release that he put out and said you know I've accomplished what I want to do in my career and I'm very proud of what I've done and and I have hopes of doing other things buddy you're retiring and not running again because you were going to get your butt kicked because you were Joe Biden's little laugh dog when you were supposed to be representing uh West Virginia voters so I think we need to be honest about why he's not going to be a senator again and it's because no one in his own state likes him the people who know him best don't want him as their senator anymore and and that's why he's not going to be running again so you bring up Mitt Romney uh man they are they are birds of a feather in that thing Mitt Romney's only the only consistent thing he has done his entire career in politics is run he gets in once and then he does such a poor job that everyone in the state hates him so he can't run again so he just finds like a new state to run you know he was a one -term governor in Massachusetts he got smoked in the presidential so he decided to move to Utah and run for senate there and no one likes him there anymore because he's a jerk uh and so what does he have left to do the only thing that Joe Manchin has left to do which is avoid any actual real job and just stay in politics and find a bunch of left -leaning voters who pretend they're independent but you can bilk and make a living off of so that's what's happening with Joe Manchin and I can't take this no label stuff seriously at all it's just a grift for a bunch of idiots who are hated by the left and hated by the right don't want to get a real job and have no home to go to go back to by the way Federalist you guys do great work it's really amazing just 30 seconds rip on the Federalist how are

for you and we have a video to accompany it in a second will John Fetterman cost Joe Biden the election divisions among democrats over Israeli -Palestinian conflict have highlighted the fault with lines in the party John Fetterman's actions are unlikely to sway the presidential election Pennsylvania however it does show that there are fault lines in the democrat party first of all I'm not a fan of John Fetterman but the guy is a master class troll every republican could take a class in how to troll like John Fetterman is basically if reddit became a U .S. senator I don't know if you saw this video but it's just you know you have this guy that looks like cyclops walking you know in a hoodie with the Israeli flag walking did you see this video on the funniest thing I've ever seen and all these people are getting arrested honestly I respect that level of game and this his base he's trolling so Sean you know let's broaden this a little bit outside of just Fetterman doing the trolling is this which is um the fault lines the democrat party over Israel the Palestine issue I don't want to overplay this I think this is the most divided I've seen the democrats in recent memory am I right on saying that Sean I think you are and I think it explains why the institutional left why Joe Biden and the party leadership uh walk on eggshells on this issue which really shouldn't be a difficult issue um you know people shouldn't be rolling into Israel and murdering babies and raping people and filming it and bragging about it that's bad I feel like anyone who has a soul understands that's bad but unfortunately there's a significant segment of the left the far left um it hates Israel hates Jews and when they see party leadership uh like Joe Biden and anyone else uh say common sense things uh about Israel they lose their minds and that that explains everything about why the democrats are handling this as poorly as they are is it Joe Biden is terrified that he's going to lose the presidential election because he's going to lose Michigan because he's going to lose Dearborn Michigan that's that big thing explained everything it's everything that's going on it has nothing to do with principle they're just scared about what their loony left is going to do to them if they don't kowtow to Hamas yeah and it's just but also beyond that Sean there are radicalized white liberals that care about the Gaza issue as well it's not just the Muslim vote right this could impact on their college campus enthusiasm and you play that in with some Jill Stein Cornell West I mean there are serious fault lines in this forced democrat coalition oh absolutely the the hardcore uh white left uh is is every bit as anti -semitic as the uh the bread by the way in in left wing run universities who view the entire world through this oppressor oppressed colonialist victim uh perspective and so yeah your your most rabid anti -semites often on college campuses are these hardcore left -wing white radicals it's totally bizarre but if you watch the media you watch the media the only anti -semites on earth are on the right which is absurd if you have eyes and ears and a brain because it's clearly concentrated on the left final question Sean your just gut reaction Tucker Carlson vice president for Donald Trump I love it I love Tucker uh I think it'd be great it'd be great for America um he's one of the only people who who says all the things that we all think but aren't allowed to say he actually comes out and says it and uh I love him I think it'd be awesome I think we would win especially in a multi -candidate race we're gonna keep on building it out Sean thanks so much appreciate it thank you sir nobody Tucker is better in front of the camera than Tucker you're not gonna outwit him could you just imagine Tucker in a debate Tucker versus Cami Kamala Harris versus Tucker Tucker is ridiculously alert he's been harassed constantly and in an internet age as Joe Rogan famously said Tucker Carlson was built for the internet no personal scandals his laugh alone we know this at Turning Point USA you can you could fill up a room if you just announced Tucker so let's pretend Trump has to go to Fulton County and Jack Smith and he's tied up in all this court stuff wouldn't it make sense to have a vice president who could draw big crowds and draw media attention especially in a multi -candidate race everybody you want to win younger voters especially younger men Tucker Carlson you would win early 30 -somethings you would win the Rogan bros you would win the Andrew Tate people and honestly I think you'd win a lot of suburban women a lot of moms like Tucker they really do Tucker's smart he's well before I'll use it again the more he's attacked the stronger he gets they've tried to take Tucker out every possible way the government spied on him illegally Tucker doesn't care he's in a political moment that we're in doesn't that make sense I want to tell you about the Herzog Foundation we are partnering with them on some exciting stuff for years I've been talking about our nation's public schools and how they've been captured by progressive ideologues

.com that's HerzogFoundation .com Joining us now is the legend Benny Johnson Benny is best known by hosting a legend you are a legend no no no I don't just I just don't throw praise unless it's earned okay I got to tell the whole story here and we'll get through it and Benny of course hosts the Benny show he's amazing we've done some really fun stuff at Turning Point USA and continue to and so but he's best he will be best when known the history books are written for being a debate coach so here I am about to take the stage at Freedom Night our Turning Point USA event and my phone is lighting up Vivek goes after the RNC Vivek goes I say what is going on because here I kind of put in the back of my mind I was like whatever you know you and Vivek were like doing somersaults off of jet skis or something you're like we're debate prepping running through the woods or I was like all right okay whatever and then as soon as I saw Vivek go after NBC News I said Benny it's Benny tell us the story Benny okay so what do I do professionally well like this has been something that I've had a tough time a question I've had a tough time answering my entire life I do pattern recognition and energy energy right like where is the base what is our energy what are the what are the patterns of the things that we hate the very most well we we hate an RNC that doesn't listen to us we hate a Republican party that won't build the wall that won't deliver for the base that delivers election wins for the RNC it is not the RNC that wins elections it is us who gets out and votes but we also hate the corporate press and so why don't we bundle both those two things into criticism of an RNC that is siding with NBC News to host a debate and ask the questions why are these debate hosts allowed to one rig another debate against Republicans why is the RNC celebrating NBC News as a debate partner when they went with Hunter Biden's laptop disinformation Russia disinformation against President Trump kneecap President Trump's why would we allow that like how like how cucked are we and how embarrassing is it for all of us that that we have to say this is our Republican party and why doesn't Rana just resign do us all a favor and simply resign and so I all I did all I did was bring those concerns to the person who I was making a documentary with that day the vague and um you know compliments to the vague he sort of so let's absorb them and and let's show the clip here so what with it because because it really was the shot heard around the world it was one of the most viral debate moments in the history of debates because Vivek said what we were all thinking Rana has a 99 disapproval rating every base every every base member all the donors I talked to they want her gone it is it transcends economic lines state lines nobody likes her unless they're on the payroll right and yet Vivek is the only one that and then NBC News on top of it this is behind the cut one fifty four because these snooty the snooty like uh persnippity moderators to be compared to Greg Gutfeld and then it'll throw off it'll throw them off their game so bad because you'll be like you you you people are clowns to us right like our base doesn't like you and it's nothing personal it's just you've earned it right you've lied to them that's right yeah yes so why are we yep be such a broken system now I want to brag on the vague because we're going to play some more here how many times Benny how many times have you and I texted or you know said good ideas to congressmen and senators they said yeah yeah they don't listen to us credit to Vivek for also being open -minded right that's a big deal that's exactly right and also Vivek who's certainly not short of podcast bookings said why isn't Elon Musk and Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson hosting debate why isn't Charlie Kirk hosting a debate Charlie why aren't you have you been asked by the RNC to host a debate no I have been attacked by the RNC in the last couple weeks definitely not asked to host the debate but I I'm I'm thankful to even be included in that list that's that's very sweet but no what but what would like why not I mean that's in the little that's in the documentary that we put up we put up a 30 -minute documentary about that debate preparation which really was just us having a conversation right like energy absorption like like where's the base right now what do they want to hear because as much as we want to talk about the number of naval ships and Hugh Hewitt know how many ships do we got like people are really concerned about other issues and specifically inside of the party like you shouldn't get rewarded for lying to us and that's what the Republican party just said they rewarded Kristen Welker and NBC News who lied to us for three years and kneecapped President Trump who we put in office in spite of them trying to rig the 2016 election we put President Trump in office and they destroyed arguably his first term based on a lie and they have never apologized they have never said they were wrong they they then get rewarded by our own RNC and it allows me to ask the question again and again how cucked are we if we can't say you get no debates until you apologize to our base for lying to us about the Russian collusion hoax then we really don't have a party and so it was refreshing to see somebody actually say that from the stage and then to call for Rana to resign which by the way you want to talk about moving the Overton window because I you know you know me Benny I I pick fights all the time and I've been kind of like beating the drum you know why is Rana Mcromany still in there you know in our little corner here and you know we're having fun and next thing you know boom Vivek goes on stage it's like yeah why are you in charge exactly and who are you and it was I mean now it's mainstream completely mainstream here's cut 166 Benny did a documentary with Vivek before the debate here is the conversation behind the scenes of Vivek deciding he will call for Rana to resign play cut 166.
Fresh update on "jack smith" discussed on Stephanie Miller
"Feel like it's all one story. Doesn't it? Like Nancy Pelosi once said, all roads lead to Putin. I mean, Putin, Putin funded and trained Hamas. This is exactly what he hoped to distract from Ukraine. Um, you better bet do he'll everything he can to get Donald Trump back. In terms of Donald Trump, he is a, you know, a love affair with Vladimir Putin. mean, I the guy, you know, he, he has a love affair with, with any dictator. He thinks all dictators are, you know, they're strong. They're, you know, he looks up to Kim Jong on. He looks up to Erte and Erdogan, all these people. He, you know, he thinks that that's, that's what aspires he to be. He wants to be a dictator of America and he's, you know, he's doing out of the authoritarian playbook. I mean, the story ends the way it began. He is a traitor to the United States and you have been talking about it. He is. He's a traitor. He fomented an insurrection on the United States capital and he's turning it around to make it look like those people are the idiots. Yeah. And that's the part of the disinformation. People believe that the election was stolen. They believe they're being patriotic when they storm the capital like that. And we're in this really strange place now. I mean, none of us were alive during the civil war. That was the worst time in America. People think each other. I thought you were kidding. Go for that really cheap joke there, Stephanie. I'm trying to make Joe Biden look younger. I'm that old that I used to hang around with Lincoln. No, the thing is that people were killing each other. We were physically killing each other. a We're hair's breadth away from doing that again. Politically, we're killing each other now. And we're on the brink of, you know, destroying our democracy. Yeah. How many times has he admitted ordered he the code red to quote somebody? Yes. Do you have just before we go, our last question is do you have confidence that justice will come for him? Boy, here's the thing. You know, it's hard to know because the one trial that could take place before the election is the January 6 trial that Jack Smith is bringing against him. And that starts sometime in March. And we will have a verdict before the election. But that verdict is going to be appealed. The process will go on and we won't have a result or resolution to that until after the election. Well, once he's in office, who knows what happens to that investigation and to that court case. We don't know. So it's really scary. Yeah, we got to keep framing it fascism versus democracy. That's what this whole it's the democracy. It is 100 percent. Yeah, 100 percent. I mean, you know, we talk about abortion rights. We talk about voting rights. We talk about the economy. We talk about immigration. We talk about guns and all those things. And But if you don't have a democracy, none of those things are going to matter. Yep. Rob Reiner, you were take your big giant bag of Emmys and Oscar nominations and whatever else you got.

A highlight from Military v Civilian leadership - whats the difference?
"In this episode I speak to Jack Smith about the importance of leadership and how it differs between the military and civilian life. During this conversation Jack discusses the importance of recognising individual reactions to stress and burnout and how military leadership skills can be applied in civilian environments. We talk about the importance of humility in leadership and how military leadership training can impact civilian leadership styles with a focus on empathy and decision making in challenging environments. I create clear thinking and decisive leaders who can amplify their influence. Contact me to find out how I can help you or your organisation. And today our guest is Jack Smith. How you doing Jack? I'm very well, thank you for having me, are you well? Yeah apart from a cold so if I sound a bit stuffed up please forgive me. So Jack tell me what type of movies do you like to watch? You know I'm a wide variety of movies I like naturally you know coming from the background that I do I like a good war movie. I like to spend the majority of my time picking pieces apart in war movies and stuff like that it always irritates everybody I watch them with but anything you know good action drama I just don't do horror movies very well. Yeah I understand what you're saying I find that as I as I get older my tastes have changed quite substantially and my ability to sit through stuff so back in my head I'm like is this a good use of my time? It's like committing an hour and a half to three and a half hours in some cases isn't it where you just go I could be doing something else. Well yeah it's more like I might start watching a something like a series or something can get like five episodes in and then I always make the mistake of just seeing how many is in there then notice that there's like five seasons and I'm like no I cannot commit the time to catching up to the to the fifth season so like even though I was enjoying it I'm like no I can't spend that much time. And I know I love a box set you can pick it up and put it down whenever you eat whenever you get your spare time it's that sort of way to escape I think. Oh that's the problem I can't put them down so that's why I just watched them one after the other so that's why I'm like oh no I can't commit 30 hours because that's how long it's going to take. So Jack tell us a bit more about you. Yeah so I'm currently the the logistics lead and inventory lead for an IT solutions company we deal in warehouse and distribution but my background comes from the military where I've spent time in both the regular and reserve space so I've been able to travel around a bit and work with varying different people all different kinds of leaders and really had a sort of experience of the spectrum of what the military has to offer all its qualifications and all of its sort of building and training and all the way through to where I am now where I say I now have the the absolute honor of being able to train our British Army Reserve soldiers so it's been a really exciting time it's really exciting career and I went into logistics with the British Army because it was it was closest to my house at the time it was the closest unit to my house at the time and it was the best decision I could have made because it really set me up for where I am now and where I am now and where I'm going now is really exciting for me and there's there's a lot that I'm learning and there's a lot that I'm benefiting from and it all comes down to essentially the the the start in life that the the the British Army and the MOD as a wider piece has given me really. Okay thank you for that I've had a number of people from all sorts of different countries military on and they all have something unique to say you you mentioned earlier that you know the British Army's helped set you up for how you're leading today can you explore that a little bit more for us? Yeah absolutely so one of the things that I've learned in my time with British Armed Forces and with the Army is that there is no sort of clear differentiation between when you become a leader and when you're not and I think from the get -go in its most simplest forms when you look at the processes and training that you go through you're always encouraged to know the person above you and you know know the person above you's job and what what it is that they need to be able to do in order to you know fulfill a mission to complete a task and so on and so forth so from the get -go that kind of introduction to to leadership is is is presented to you and it's up to you then to take that with both hands and and essentially manage how you go forward you know within two to three years of of British Army service you could you can be promoted especially from the the non -commissioned ranks so the the people that aren't officers when you become a junior NCO or junior non -commissioned officer that is that is your first rung on the ladder and that is you for being recognized as as a leader as a supervisor if you like from from very early on in your career obviously from a commissioned officer perspective you have you know 44 weeks I believe it is at Sandhurst where you are trained throughout that entire year as well as looking at your strategies and and understanding all sorts of things within the military curriculum you are bred then to be a leader from the second you walk out the door so it inherently gives you that that opportunity to start learning and developing your leadership and your leadership style as soon as you begin. Okay so I mean that's a that is quite a substantial course you've got there so what what are you learning though because 44 weeks of leadership training seems like a lot so what specifically are you learning there? So I'm not I didn't commission so I'm I'm part of the non -commissioned part so the the officer training itself is a bit of a mystery to me and I think it's interesting to be that way it's like this sort of dark art that the officers do they sort of go in one week carrying their ironing board under one arm and then leave you know 44 weeks later ready to to command soldiers you know and I think the majority of it it looks at that command part and how leadership and management feeds into the command piece so but the intricacies of the training itself is is a mystery to me and I think it's probably intentionally. That makes that makes a lot of sense so having been in the army out and then training reserves and then doing your day job as well how do you see the differences if there is any between a military leader and say a ceo or a senior leader in a civilian organization? Well this is the big secret there isn't a great deal of difference.

Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campuses. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created. Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust. Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. The House of Representatives does not have a speaker and says very clearly in the United States Constitution, the House of Representatives shall choose their speaker and other officers and shall have the sole power of impeachment. But right now there is no speaker of the House. Jim Jordan has effectively withdrawn from the speaker's race. We warned you on this program, the moderates were going to dig in. The moderates were going to try to hold the line and they have. The moderates want nothing to do with a conservative speaker. This is them executing their revenge from what happened with Motion to Vacate. It is a tit for tat back and forth. And I could tell you talking to the grassroots, talking to donors. I've had a lot of donor meetings this last week. Really amazing grassroots donors, really amazing people. There's some great donors out there that really love the country. They are so upset with the Republican Party. They are so over this clown show, this circus. The fact that you vacate the chair and then you have no plan to replace it. You can't have Jim. You cannot even get Jim Jordan to become speaker. It is widespread dysfunction. And the grassroots agrees. Talking everyday grassroots warriors. Let me read this one email and I understand. I understand that these emails can be more passion than actual reality. But I mean, I'll just read this one. Frank says, Charlie, the Republican Party is dead to me. We'll never vote for any of them again. OK, I hope you're wrong, but I understand the passion, the sentiment. I hope you change your mind. But what am I supposed to say? Yeah. Vote for Republicans, because if you give them power, what are they going to do? It's not exactly making the best sales pitch. So now there's new headlines that Jim Jordan has basically backed out. Jim Jordan will not pursue a third vote for speaker. That's too bad. And I'd like to see him continue to push this fight forward, but you can't blame him. I mean, only he knows the intensity and the things being thrown at him. So Jim Jordan is a great American. Jim Jordan is a true conservative. We've been pushing him this entire time. But 20 moderates want to try to get in the way to prevent Jim Jordan from becoming speaker. Now, there's bipartisan support, NBC News says. For McHenry Patrick to become temporary House speaker. Hold on a second, bipartisan support. That's a bad, bad headline, everybody. Wait, did we win the House or did we not win the House? We are effectively destroying our House majority because we cannot select a speaker. We warned about this back in January. We've warned about this last week. And I'm sad to say that if Patrick McHenry becomes temporary House speaker, it empowers the Democrats. This is worse than business as usual. The Democrats did not have any power this this last summer. You could say what you want about how you didn't like Kevin McCarthy and you didn't like the C .R. and the debt ceiling. I can resonate with that. But we had real committees on weaponization of government. We had real stuff going on Biden. So we asked, what was the plan? What was the plan? What was the plan? What was the plan? What was the plan? People said, well, just trust the process. Here we are trusting the process. And if Patrick McHenry is getting bipartisan support, that makes me not want to support him. We want a Republican speaker of the House, not a bipartisan speaker of the House. Big difference. We voted for a Republican majority. Notice that impeachment of Biden is gone. By the way, Biden's numbers are going to probably go up five to 10 points in the next week or two, not because he deserves it, but because you do a foreign visit and there's war and all that. It's it's one of the iron laws of politics is when a foreign leader goes abroad in a time of crisis, numbers go up. So we rolled the dice. We did motion to vacate. And some of you are going to say, you know, McKevin McCarthy totally deserved it. Hard to disagree on the C .R. and the debt ceiling stuff. When you spend two trillion dollars that you do not have in the border remains wide open. Jack Smith is unchecked. We're spending money Ukraine. I'm not going to defend that. Bipartisan means concessions. Because we cannot get our act together, because the Republican Party cannot get behind a single speaker, Jim Jordan or otherwise, if it ends up happening that Patrick McHenry becomes speaker of the House and bipartisan support unites behind it, you will have effectively neutered the Republican Congress. Pramila Jalapal, Jayapal, who is left of Joseph Stalin, has come out and said, quote, I'm waiting to see what the assurances are about power sharing. The chairman of the Progressive Caucus, your Republican Congress is going to have to now do power sharing with progressive Democrats. If this ends up happening and if I'm not going to say it is a guarantee, it is as if another election happened, breaking news, CNN Republicans lose House majority. Quote, what do we have to ensure? What happens here reflects the fact that the Democrats are essentially governing this body. You might have won the House of Representatives at the ballot box. But then you lose it because you can't select the speaker. So this is happening in real time. And Jim Jordan has backed out and some of you are very angry that, you know, Jim Jordan is, you know, this one here. Why is Jim Jordan turning into a fluff? Thought he was a fighter. What is going on? Look, you can't blame him. I understand you're angry and all this, but the 20 moderates are not moving. They're not budging, guys. This is the same problem that we illustrated when we said maybe Kevin McCarthy is not as bad as you think he is. And I will say this. The complaints against Kevin McCarthy, totally legit. Fine. C .R. debt ceiling. I don't like that stuff. But Kevin McCarthy would be and still to this day would be a better speaker. Then a bipartisan coalition government, that is a fact, that's a fact, power sharing coalition government, which is now not something that is being remotely entertained. By the way, we've been attacked on this program by people. Charlie, you're fear mongering. Not going to happen. I'm not going to say it's a guarantee, but it's about a 50 50 shot that there's a power sharing agreement at this point to share power with Pramila Jayapal. By the way, the Democrats, they're so smart. Nancy Pelosi told Kevin McCarthy, I'll always have your back. She's a liar, obviously. Kevin McCarthy gets the motion to vacate all the Democrats. The order came down from the Democrats. Do not bail out Kevin McCarthy. And Democrats said, huh? The Republicans don't have a plan. We might be able to take over the House. The Democrats said, hey, what do we have to lose? We just we just have to sit in our chair through another round of voting and yell. Jeffries, Jeffries for another hour. OK, so the Democrats, like good Stalinists, listen to the Politburo, got the order from on high and they said, OK, let's get rid McCarthy. Let's roll the dice. And now they might actually have won. The Democrats might have taken over the House majority without an election. The American people gave the Republicans a majority and the Democrats very well might take it over because of our dysfunction. Now, it's important to note, if something happened to Biden and Kamala, presidency could only be a person with the true title of speaker, not speaker pro tem or acting speaker. So if McEnany or anyone else is sitting in the speaker's chair as anything other than the true speaker elected by a roll call vote of the House, then after Biden, Harris, the president pro tem of the Senate, and then it would go to Anthony Blinken. Anthony Blinken, Lord help us all. And there's a lot of frustration coming in here. Freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. And people say, well, Charlie, what is the plan? Honestly, that's not for me to answer. I'm not the one that has been calling for this stuff. I'm in the one that's actually been and I've received a fair amount of hostility from people, a fair amount of hostility to people. And that's fine. I appreciate it. I appreciate it. You guys were blooding me up and send tell me to go to bad places, Gehenna, which is Hebrew for help, because I was a little bit cautious, which is against some of my wiring, which is like, guys, hold on. Let's be careful. Some of you are saying, Charlie, give the Democrats the majority. We never had a majority. Pull the mask off and let's move on. Yeah, I think that's very irresponsible. That's not a good idea. A source familiar told The Daily Caller that, quote, Jordan will continue to run and try to shore up votes until then remain speaker designee, not dropping out McHenry temporary till January. Republicans are not exactly making the best case to give us more political power. What do you think about the Jim Jordan, Kevin McCarthy motion to vacate all of this together? Are you pleased with how the last two and a half weeks have gone? Do you think this is the best use of a precious majority? The only thing in government we control. Have you been thrilled post motion to vacate? Email me. Freedom at Charlie Kirk. Dot com. Hey, everybody, Charlie Kirk here every Halloween, you hear about the dangers in the candy your kids will get. But this year, the real tricks are in the meat aisle. Good ranchers wants to take the trick out of your meat, and they're throwing in a treat for my listeners. Lab grown meat is growing more and more popular. Foreign meat dresses up in a product of USA label and M .R .N .A. vaccine development is on the rise for agriculture. What's in your meat and food is more in question than ever before. Admit these haunting truths. The real hero arises. Good ranchers as the number one place to get America's best beef, pork, chicken and seafood delivered. Good ranchers products are transparently sourced, all American delicious. When you shop at good ranchers dot com, you don't have to question what's in your meat or where your meat is coming from. With one hundred percent American guarantee and a transparent vaccination policy, you'll always know where your meat comes from and what's in it. I trust good ranchers and you should to use promo code Kirk to get thirty dollars off free express shipping on your box of America's best meat and seafood today. That's code Kirk for thirty dollars off your box today at good ranchers dot com. That's good ranchers dot com promo code Kirk. American meat delivered. OK, I think I have to do a better job of explaining this because we're receiving a lot of emails of people confused, saying, Charlie, what do you mean? We could lose the majority. OK, so let me do a better job of kind of articulating this. So you have four hundred and thirty five, right, like 435, 435 members of the United States House of Representatives voting members. You have some people from Guam or the Virgin Islands that aren't voting members that can sit on committees. OK, there are four hundred and thirty five people in the United States Congress and they come together and obviously divided by party. And so one party has more members than the other Republicans. I think right now of two twenty one to twenty to twenty one, right, depending on who's sick or who's in the hospital. Not a joke. You know, when you have to twenty one, it's tough to organize right to twenty to twenty one. So your margin gets to twenty one. Thank you. And Democrats have to twelve and then there's two vacant seats. And so it goes up and down and up and down. It's tough. And they don't allow remote voting. Thankfully, they shouldn't for voting for speaker. So you have to be there in person. So when you have a majority to twenty one and the bad guys have a minority, you should be able to say, hey, that the magic number, whoever can get two hundred and seventeen votes, then you become speaker of the House. You have a majority. You control committees, legislative agenda, all that stuff. So but if part of your party, part of the two twenty one decide to go in a line with the two twelve of the Democrats, which only takes five to five, Republicans could hand the majority over to Democrats and they might.

He spoke to reporters Friday after House Republicans met for almost three hours to come up with a plan to avoid a government shutdown. I think we had an interesting conversation there, but we continue to work through trying to find the way out of this. I firmly believe there are no winners in a government shutdown, and I think that's the best way forward to make sure a government does not shut down. McCarthy says he thinks a Senate bill without $6 billion in funding for Ukraine could pass in the House, adding he thinks Democrats will oppose it.

US Special Counsel Jack Smith Asks Judge to Place Gag Order on Trump
"Persecuting him in this matter why the Biden Justice Department this politically tainted weaponized Department of Justice is going after him he has absolutely every right in fact he needs to he has a responsibility to do so what the judge is trying to do is to tie his hands so that he Donald Trump can't go out there and explain his side of the story and the argument he's using of course is the same tired argument the left always uses which is that Trump's speech will lead to people getting in in danger they'll be put in danger that's actually what he's saying a redacted copy of a released government filing Friday after an order from US District Judge Tanya Chukin comes in connection with the election interference case one of four criminal cases he's facing quote the defendant has an established practice of issuing inflammatory public statements targeted individuals or institutions that present an obstacle to him the government said Trump made clear his intention to issue public attacks related to case the when the day after his arraignment he posted a threatening message on truth social this was the message that he posted on August 4th quote if you go after me I'm coming after you how is that a threatening statement it's not of course but what they want to do is to silence him completely Jack Smith does not want Donald Trump to be able to make his case to the American people the effort to keep him off the ballot which is so alive and well right now and you've got people who are completely interpreting the 14th amendment section 3 which does not apply to presidents because the president is not listed senators representatives electors of the president and the vice president but not the president so this effort is going to fail they know it's going to fail they have to know that when this gets to the supreme court if they try to bar Trump from being on the ballot usually the 14th amendment section when 3 this gets to the United States Supreme Court, the courts going to throw it out say it does not

"Politics at times is the art of the possible. I'm not even sure that it would work, but we have to figure out some way to get Jack Smith to back off some way. The second thing is House Republicans should subpoena Fannie Willis immediately. They should have her testify. Jennifer has emailed us freedom at Charlie Kirk, dot com. I think this is a great idea, Charlie. Well, thank you. I'm not even saying it's a great idea. I think it's a realistic idea to defund Jack Smith while we don't control the Senate and the presidency. And isn't the whole argument that I keep on hearing is we do not want to see the DOJ politicized and weaponized. OK. Well, then say that if you're 13 months with out from a presidential election, then make that the case. Another email says, Charlie, originally, I think your idea is awful, but the Bidens are treated with kid gloves. So this actually might be an OK idea. Peter says, Charlie, trade Jack Smith for Hunter Biden until after the election. All caps. Yes, because Hunter Biden's probably gonna get probation anyway. This is not exactly some like massive investigation. Larry says, brilliant idea, Charlie. The election of Trump will guarantee a much better and more complete investigation of the Biden crime family in 2024. Bingo. That's right. Again, politics is the art of the possible. And you have an active investigation of Hunter Biden. You got Donald Trump facing five hundred years in federal prison. We think Jack Smith is the number one threat to our society or civilization. Someone says here, Charlie, nothing's going to happen to Biden anyway. Take the deal. And isn't the whole goal winning in 2024 of November? If Jack Smith is in the way, put Jack Smith on ice, and then that means you might have to also put Hunter Biden on ice, which he already is on ice effectively. Think about it.

"So we need to defund Jack Smith. It's 100 percent most important thing. Will Chuck Schumer go for that? Probably not. Will Joe Biden go for that? Probably not. So that will shut down the government. So you have to ask, is there a possible way to defund Jack Smith? Maybe. What if there was an attempt to say that we will defund any current investigations into people running for president or their families until after the presidential election? That would include Joe or Hunter Biden. Now, is that an actual investigation of Hunter Biden? It's kind of a joke, honestly, the way it is right now. And this would defang Jack Smith and actually allow an election to occur. Now, the counter argument you probably say is, Charlie, why would you defund the one opportunity we have to actually hold the Democrats accountable? But do you actually think that Hunter Biden is getting the full pressure, the full court press of the Department of Justice right now? Democrats would potentially go for it because they'd say, well, this would get them off our back. Get them off Hunter's back. And we don't have the Senate. So this could potentially be a possible deal of the no political investigations until after the 2024 election. We already know Hunter Biden is a crook. We could still proceed with impeachment. It would just be a little bit of a delay. Now, I know you're going to be emailing, Charlie, come on. You've got to be kidding me. This is weak and all that. Well, look, we don't control the Senate. We don't control the White House. So you just can't defund Jack Smith and then just move on. Plus, if you shut down the government, Jack Smith's money still continues, just so we're clear. So you'd have to carve out Jack Smith in particular. So what if you call the Democrats bluff and you say, look, because if you read a lot of the anger that is happening right now, we are resisting this Jack Smith push based on principle. We say that an unelected Department of Justice should not be able to interfere with our elections. I totally agree. Are Republicans going to play hardball on this? Probably not. I'll be honest. It's not a great deal, but it would be a much better deal than nothing saying, OK, we will temporarily deprive all the funding of investigations into Hunter Biden and will temporarily deprive all the funding into all investigations into Trump and his family and people associated. Not saying that they will never be renewed. It's just we're going to allow an election to occur. And let's be honest, do you actually think Hunter Biden is getting thoroughly investigated right now? Do you actually we know with all the white stuff and the corruption and the whistle blowing and the interference is actually more for Congress's role than some technical thing of Hunter Biden didn't fill out a piece of paper for a gun registration issue. That's weak.
"jack smith" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"So, Congressman Jordan, in kind of closing here, this is going to be a very, very eventful couple of weeks coming up. And I I get the impression that Joe Biden and the White House, they're positioning almost for a government shutdown. In fact, there have been some leaks and some memos trying to already blame the Republicans if a government is shut down, at least from where our perspective is. I think there needs to be some bright lines. And Jack Smith, I think we've got to go all in on the defunding of Jack Smith because he has been so completely out of control, unconstitutional and a terrible precedent. So I'm sure this is still being worked out, but the border is great. We love that. Any thoughts on just kind of some bright red lines as we enter into this? Because Joe Biden? Yeah, please. No, I think those are the two, because I mean, think of the contrast. You've got David Weiss named as the special counsel to look into the Biden business operation. David Weiss, the guy who presided over the investigation for four and a half years, the guy who allowed the defense council to be tipped off when a search warrant was coming, the guy who put together the plea deal that the court declined to accept because it was so ridiculous. That's the guy who gets named special counsel? What? So contrast that with Jack Smith, who's indicted former President Trump in not one, but two locations. I mean, truly unbelievable. So I think that issue is front and center. And of course, the immigration border security issue is front and center, as is evident by what, again, what Mayor Adams has set up in New York, the situation there. So those are the kind of issues that you put on a bill that funds the government and you tell Chuck Schumer, really? You think it's appropriate for the Biden administration to, you're going to shut down the government because you think the Biden administration needs to be able to fund the prosecution of their opponent for the presidential election and you think it's appropriate for Chuck Schumer to shut down the government because he won't accept limiting additional migrants coming into the country? Really? Go tell that to the people in New York, Senator Schumer. Those are the kind of things I think that you have to look at to put on that bill that funds the government. That's exactly what we're attempting to do. Congress and Jim Jordan, thank you so much for your time. Thank you. We appreciate it. You bet, Charlie. Thanks for all you do.

"I honestly think this is one of the most promising developments over the last decade. It's a promising development that Mitt Romney basically has to retire in shame. And he believes that he is in the vast minority, the party, but remember what he said, Oh, we will rise again. Not if we have anything to say about it. Willard Mitt Romney oligarchs like you have no place in the Republican party period. Now in this piece, in the Atlantic.com, he basically allowed this writer McKay Coppins who is a talented writer. No doubt. It's the piece was very readable, I have to say. Full inside access of Mitt Romney. And they try to make him seem like he's some sort of martyr. And they paint Mitt Romney as a young kid who never knew if he could sit at the cool kid's table at the cafeteria feels the same way at the Senate lunch. Nothing has changed for Mitt Romney. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. You're the too good for school, too good for us virtue signaling smug. And nothing has changed from being unpopular in high school to being unpopular in the Senate. But let's focus on one part of the piece. Throughout the piece, it talks about how Mitt Romney would privately talk to other senators. And I actually believe this part of the article where Mitt Romney would start to confide in other senators because he would speak against Trump and speak against Trump. And other senators would say, boy, I wish I could speak out like you could, Mitt, but I'm afraid of my voters. I agree with you. Now there's two takeaways there. The first takeaway is that you are making an impact on senators behavior. That's a big deal. It's a big deal that they're afraid of their voters and being primaried. That's a good thing. Now they go on to say that all of these senators are physically afraid of their voters and that there's any violence because it's nonsense. That's garbage. Okay. But they should that if they were to go to vote and convict and impeach Donald Trump, they should be primaried and removed from office. So that's number one. That's a favorable takeaway. The second one, it goes to show how the Senate Republicans have been playing you and playing Trump for quite some time, saying the right things while not actually believing them. Mitt Romney says, quote, a very large portion of my party really doesn't believe in the constitution. He'd realized this only recently. We were a few months removed from an attempted coup instigated by Republican leaders. Right. Goes on to say that senators would say, boy, I wish I had your state. I wish my state was like yours. Other senators say Mitt Romney tells us exactly who he is. He is not a conservative. He is not a grassroots populist. And it makes you wonder how many other people in the Senate are hiding in plain sight who really believe nothing. It goes on and Mitt Romney said he learned when he was in the Senate that most people are just transactional. They just want to win reelection, including you, Mitt Romney, until you resign. Here's how you know Mitt Romney has completely lost any harmony with the grassroots. When you have Hillary Clinton praising you on MSNBC, you have to really take a step back and say, wow, our party has changed for the better to kick clowns like this out of our circle. Play cut 77. You know, Joe, it's hard to imagine how much worse it's gotten from what we thought was pretty much the bottom. And I really appreciate Senator Romney being so forthright and laying out his firsthand observations and understanding of, you know, what's going on inside, not just the Republicans in the Senate, but the entire Republican Party. It is something that is hard for me to really understand. You know, I was in the Senate for eight years. I served with a number of the people who are still there. I used to believe they all knew better that they went along with the criminality of Trump and his enablers for their own reasons, but that at some point they would call halt. And now I don't recognize these people. And it's such a disservice to the country. And so we've got to, you know, keep fighting back as best we can. Mitt Romney wins praise from Hillary Clinton on MSNBC. That should tell you everything you need to know. Mitt Romney 11 years ago was the nominee of the Republican Party. He was supposed to be our fighter against Obama Marxism. And 11 years later, he's resigning from the Senate, winning praise from Hillary Clinton. I don't think he actually changed. We just woke up.

"We are here at our TPUSA Faith Pastors Summit. 1,100 pastors from across the country. You're going to hear some background noise throughout our broadcast, but it's a good thing. Let's show that picture up on screen. That's what's happening in literally feet away from me. 1,100 pastors combined congregational reach of four million people, four million people weekly congregational reach, and so it's amazing. So apologize for any of the noise that you are hearing, but it's good noise. It's not a rock concert. It is pastors learning how to take a stand to strengthen the church, to fight for liberty, to fight wokeism. We're going to be talking about that throughout the hour and mentioning it. I do want to make sure I got to get to this Mitt Romney story, but first, this is the most pressing thing. I was in Lubbock, Texas this last weekend, and I spoke privately to a state representative who does not like Ken Paxton, and he is helping lead the charge for the impeachment and removal of Ken Paxton, and he believes that Ken Paxton might be removed as attorney general of Texas. This is a private, very, very heated conversation that I had, and we have gone through the Ken Paxton thing in some great detail, but the impeachment proceedings are progressing in Texas. The Texas attorney general needs 10 state senators to vote to acquit, and I've been told by insiders that it is neck and neck right now in the state of Texas, neck and neck as close as you could possibly imagine, and I think it's unbelievable. While the border remains wide open and millions of people are waltzing into the state of Texas, Donald Trump faces 500 years in federal prison, the federal government is criminalizing everyday MAGA patriots that the priority of the Republican Texas House of Representatives in the Senate is to remove Ken Paxton as attorney general. What is that all about? It's unbelievable. I'm not even defending Ken Paxton's alleged affairs or any of that. I don't support that. Why are you removing an effective attorney general while your country is being invaded? So we're going to put this up on screen. We're going to put this at charliekirk.com. If you live in Texas, you need to contact these people. This is the other thing, Ken Paxton was elected by double digits by over 4 million Texans, even after every allegation against him was made public. So the voters wanted him to be attorney general of Texas, but then the oligarchs of the Texas House of Representatives in the Senate want to overturn that election. So it's Brian Hughes, Mays Middleton, Drew Springer, Phil King, Charles Perry, Brian Birdwell, Pete Flores, Kevin Sparks, Charles Shurtwerner, and Kelly Hancock. I could read all these phone numbers, but instead we're going to put this on our telegram channel. It's on my X or my Twitter feed. It's on our social media channels. I encourage you to be respectful, polite, be direct to these lawmakers. And if they're able to remove Ken Paxton, they are basically going to tell the millions of Texans that voted for Ken Paxton that we do not care about elections. This would make the Texas House of Representatives and the Texas Senate no better than Jack Smith. No better that we can overturn an election. The voters said we know about Ken Paxton's quote unquote baggage, and we think that the positives outweigh the negatives. OK, this is all about trying to intimidate other attorney generals while Texas is being invaded. Texas is being targeted and this is the priority.

Audio: Liberals Host Insurrection in Kevin McCarthy's Office
"Is disinformation, everything they live by. Here's some audio at seven. It's about 20 seconds. This is outside of Speaker McCarthy's office. I mean, we were just told we live in a free country where people can assemble and petition their government. So a lot of people on January 6th, not were all, some there people who went there with negative intentions, but a lot of people thought they were doing that. Matter of fact, the overwhelming majority did. So how come they find themselves in jail for decades when a liberal group yesterday did the exact same thing interfering in government business in McCarthy's office, screaming, yelling like lunatics in his office. And yet nothing seemed to happen to them. There doesn't seem to be a coordinated RICO case, Jack Smith, special counsel, FBI investigation, force media, anything like that. So weird. So weird. Here is the actual audio. This is not edited in any way. Check for now. For now. For now. For now. McCarthy. Pass. That was an insurrection, right? You know, I know a liberal right now, again, get I you wetting your diapers. I understand that. I know you don't like being confronted by facts. You were vaccinated against facts at an early age. So it's very hard for you to process information like that. I understand. I've dealt with liberals my whole life, growing up in New York and Maryland, arguing about facts. It doesn't matter. Nothing's going to work. They are legitimately allergic to facts. You tell them any kind of I'll never forget telling a Washington Post reporter that after the Bush tax cuts, tax revenue went up in the following four years. And he was astounded by this information because he never actually looked it up. And it still didn't change his assertion that the Bush tax cuts cost the economy money. Excuse me, the government money.

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Representative Andrew Clyde. Congressman, thank you for joining us. He tweeted out, the American people gets to decide who wins the White House, not the deep state. We must defund the left, sham prosecutions against Donald Trump. Republican lawmaker unveils push to block funding for Trump prosecutions, obviously, but this was met with opposition by 16 Republicans. Inexplicably, we will name their names shortly. Actually, we'll get to that. Congressman, thank you for joining us and tell us about it. Well, thank you, Charlie. It's great to be with you. Well, I think it's important that, as you said, the American people decide who our next president is going to be and not the deep state, not the weaponized government. And we are seeing time after time where the federal government is being used to prosecute a political candidate. That doesn't happen in America. That's kind of the conduct that you see in banana republics, where the sitting that those in power use their power to prosecute and try and throw in jail their political opponent. So these two amendments, so one would defund from the federal level any funds going to the prosecution of a presidential candidate between now and the November 24 elections, OK? And then the other amendment would do the same thing. It would deny federal funding to any state entity that does the same thing, that prosecutes a presidential candidate. It's very even handed, both Republican or Democrat. So what I'm trying to do is prevent the process from becoming the penalty here, because that's exactly what the left, the weaponized left is trying to do. Because you can't recover from the process. So how is this being met by and I was talking about actually when you tried to defund the FBI headquarters, we'll get that in a second. How is this being met by your more moderate Republican colleagues? Well, so far, for those that I have spoken to on the Appropriations Committee and in leadership, it's being met very positively. I think it's the right thing to do. There's still some work to be done. So I'm calling on all of my Republican colleagues to support these amendments. It's going to have to go into the Commerce Justice Science appropriation, which has not yet been marked up in our Appropriations Committee. I'm on that committee. And so I'll be offering both of those amendments and I expect that they will be approved and go into the base text of the bill. But then if we do a C .R. as well, you know, there's some qualifications for or any C .R. to go forward, in my opinion. Then it would have to be part of the C .R. as well. So I think it's very, very important that that all the Republicans get on board and support these amendments. So there was also a question about blocking the FBI's new headquarters. And is it true that 16 Republicans got in the way of that, Congressman, when you were attempting to do that? Tell us about it. Well, that was in the markup for the financial services and general government appropriation. And there is about six hundred and seventy million dollars that was set aside for the FBI's new building. It's about a little over half the amount that currently exists. The whole project is like four billion. It's going to be bigger than the Pentagon in size, which is absolutely ridiculous. The FBI does not need it by introducing an amendment to defund that six hundred and seventy million and to apply that to our national debt to pay off that portion of our national debt. And it did not pass in the in the appropriations process. We had 16 Republicans that voted against it. Now, I'll tell you that after that vote, there were some that came to me and said, hey, I think I made the wrong vote. And we're going to give them another opportunity when that actual appropriation comes to the House floor. I'm going to introduce the same amendment again. And I think there will be some change of heart, I believe, when it comes to their vote on that amendment on the House floor. So, yeah, there was a list of 16 Republicans that resisted it. Is that correct? And I want to that is correct. OK, so I want to name them. And if I have the wrong list, correct me. But it looks as if it's Steve Womack, David Valadeo, Mike Simpson, Hal Rogers, Daniel Newhouse, Julia Letow, David Joyce, Ashley Henson, Kay Granger, Scott Franklin, Jake Elsie, Mario Diaz -Balart, Juan Siscamani, Jerry Carl, Ken Calvert, Mark Amati and Robert Alderholt. What what possible reason could they give you for opposing that? Well, not a lot of them gave me a reason at all. But, you know, mind you, some of them came to me after the fact and said, hey, you know, I think I made the wrong choice. Why? Because they were hearing from their constituents. The FBI does not need a new building. I mean, they've got one point two billion dollars set aside, six hundred and seventy or so million in financial services, general government appropriation and another five hundred some million in the commerce justice science appropriation. So I think these folks will probably take a strong second look when the amendment comes onto the House floor for the FBI bill. And I believe that that there will be some change of votes. I really do. And I hope so, because that's the right thing to do. The FBI has been so weaponized as of in the last couple of years under this current administration. There is truly a two tiered system of justice here. We are seeing it time and time again when you have the treatment of Hunter Biden and then you have the treatment of President Trump. And all of those who support the conservative voices that are crying out. So I think we're going to see some different votes here. So let's now focus on September 30th. This looks to be the big day, right? So a previous Congress punted it to really, really neuter you guys. So this date has been on the calendar for quite some time. So you're inheriting a previous Congress's funding deadline, September 30th. What are you guys willing to do? Our position on this program, no short term funding bills, line in the sand. We need a fight. We gave you guys a majority for a reason. Where's your head at? What are the asks? Are you willing? How close to the line are you guys willing to get? Walk us through it. Well, I'll tell you, first off, you know, we've known the September 30th deadline has been here for a long time. And we promised as Republicans that we would bring 12 appropriation bills out of committee onto the House floor. And I expect us to do that. I expect us to keep our word. I'm on the Appropriations Committee. I'm certainly willing to be there from from today until the very end of September so that we can get all these, the rest of the appropriation bills across the finish line. Ten of them have come out of committee already. We've got two left to deal with in committee, both the Labor Health Human Services Education Appropriation and the Commerce Justice Science Appropriation. Those are the two we have left in committee. But we've got 10 that are available to go to the House floor. Actually, one already has the Milcon VA passed in July. So we've got nine that can go immediately to the House floor and get a vote. We need to be doing that to keep our word. Any short term continuing resolution, though, cannot be an unqualified or blind or what they call clean CR. Otherwise, we are simply promoting the policies of the policies and the spending levels of Nancy Pelosi. And that's wrong. I will never support that. And I'll tell you, a significant number of Republicans will not support that either. Well, that message needs to be heard loud and clear by the leadership. So just really quick, Congressman, and I just I'm hearing different things and I've always gotten along with Speaker McCarthy and I still do. But there's whispers that there might be a vote to vacate. Are you hearing that from other members? Well, I will tell you that a clean CR or an unqualified CR, it will risk our majority and therefore it will risk the speakership. I think what you're seeing is is the country gave us the majority to change the direction, change the course of Congress. We had the speakers fight in January, which I think fundamentally changed the way Congress operates. And I think that has to continue or we will truly jeopardize our majority and we will jeopardize Kevin McCarthy as speaker.

Sen. Tom Cotton: Why Dems Are Relying on the 14th Amendment
"14th Amendment. The 14th Amendment says that if you committed insurrection or rebellion against the United States, you're not eligible for federal office. This is written in the aftermath of the Civil War. It was used then to ensure that unreconstructed Confederates could never serve in federal office again. Obviously, it doesn't apply today. Donald Trump hasn't been convicted of much less even charged with insurrection. And we all know that if Jack Smith, the rabid zealot that Merrick Garland appointed prosecute to Donald Trump could have charged insurrection. Obviously, he would have. But now got you've Democrats in places like Colorado who are talking about unilaterally through partisan officers state like a Secretary of State or Attorney General removing Donald Trump from the ballot in those states. This is a very, very dangerous road to go down. And I would suggest to the Democrats as I have from the very beginning about Donald Trump. And for that matter, any other Republican they don't like, they're going to take him at the ballot box. You know, it's amazing, Senator, you make great points. On the one hand, they say he's the easiest to beat. On the other hand, they're doing everything they can to bury him alive. What do you make of 91 charges? really different, one, two, I guess five different grand juries. Democrat DAs, you have a Democrat regime special counsel. All the juries will be up made of largely anti -Trump Democrats. The judges are largely anti -Trump Democrats, not all but most pretty bad, don't you think? Again, Mark, it gets back to the point about trying to stop Donald Trump by means other than simply defeating him at the ballot because Democrats the could have pursued these

"Full disclaimer, I will be watching NFL football tonight. I don't like it. They're a little too wokey for me. I just like football too much. I think it's the Chiefs and the Lions. Don't sleep on the Lions everybody. I'll tell you, they want it bad. So as tonight NFL football begins and it is the kickoff, if you will, of the NFL season. There's also another kickoff. You know, we asked Charlie, what about the 2024 election? The 2024 election is about a year and a way. No, no, no, it's happening right now, obviously. But there's a very, very important fight looming in real time right now. I believe it is the opening kick of the 2024 election. It's 930, September 30th. The federal government needs to pass a short -term funding bill by September 30th or there will be a government shutdown. Now, you may or may not remember this, but you remember about a year and a half ago, there was a massive bill that was passed, a huge bill, not a year. It was voted on by Senator Shelby from Alabama. He was the chief person who brought this forward where they basically robbed the House of Representatives, the incoming class. It was about 10 months ago of their ability to negotiate the budget, where they kicked it all the way to this date, September 30th. So the federal government needs to pass a short -term funding bill by September 30th. The Biden regime is asking that in addition to all the normal stuff, that Congress adds $44 billion on top of that in emergency spending, $16 billion for FEMA, $24 billion for Ukraine, on top of the $200 billion already spent on Ukraine. But the most important thing is this, is that we're seeing in real time the destruction, the erosion, the shredding of the United States Constitution. We see Jack Smith, an out -of -control rogue prosecutor, Merrick Garland, the Department of Justice. We see the number one political opponent to the regime who is beating him in the polls. Fact, he's beating him in the polls, whether they're truth polls or not. It's just fact, he's beating him in the polls, facing 500 years in federal prison. Many people are asking, Charlie, what can we do? What can we do? What can we do? How do we fight? How do we push back against? How do we fight? The 30th of September is a day where we can fight. It's a day where we can draw a line in the sand and we can defund the deep state. We have the House of Representatives. We have a majority. Now, I'm going to say something that is a little bit not unpopular, but it's different. I fully support the impeachment of Joe Biden. In fact, we should have done it three or four months ago. But I actually think defunding these agencies should be a bigger priority than the impeachment of Joe Biden. I'm not saying that we shouldn't impeach Joe Biden, but I actually think a more effective way to make long -lasting change, a more effective way to use the political power that the people gave the Republican majority is to defang the tyrants, is to go after these agencies. Now, let's play this out for a second. Joe Biden is a traitor to the nation. So I think that we should pass a clean impeachment resolution, send it to the Senate. But I don't think we should spend too much time on it. I think that's a very valuable time to go and impeach and investigate a guy that we already know who is an outright criminal. He's a traitor. He should be in Gitmo in federal prison for the rest of his life, as is his son. But does that have long -lasting change? Wouldn't it be more effective to tell the FBI you don't get your new building? You have to reduce your headcount by 20 or 30 percent. Tell the Department of Defense you're not allowed to have gay poems on aircraft carriers anymore, that trans whatever individuals are not going to be allowed in the military. Isn't this a more effective way? And the most important one that's obviously staring us in the face, Department of Justice. Are we going to keep on funding Merrick Garland? Will we have the leverage and we have the ability to say no? Now, the bad guys, the Democrats and the Uniparty Republicans, they want a clean resolution, a clean CR. Well, time out here. Hold on. You guys are going after every potential political dissident. Steve Bannon, 1 ,200 January 6 defendants. You're weaponizing the entire government and we're sitting there and taking it. And we've been saying on this program time and time again, well, where are the Republican AGs? Answer, not around. Not interested in doing anything bold or courageous. Where are the Republican DAs? They're not interested. They do not want to do anything bold or courageous. So how do we end this abuse? Now, understand this is not standard politics. This is a crisis. And in a crisis, we should act differently than we normally do. The one way we have to actually act at a federal level is for the House not to fund what Biden needs. So directly focus on five or six. Don't ask for the whole world. You're not going to get the world. But identify five or six of the Soviet Gestapo pressure points of the regime. Star of the beast. All funding must start in the House, period. Nothing the Biden regime does can happen without the House GOP offering up money for them to do it. Now, we should not fund a single dollar to Ukraine. But if we're thinking realistically, they're going to figure out some way to get Ukrainian funding. So if we were smart, we'd say, OK, they really want Ukraine funding. Use that as leverage then. Say, OK, so you really want Ukraine funding. Then there has to be border wall, border security. But more important than all of that, it is the lack of funding that we have to draw the line on. You don't get Jack Smith. You want Zelensky? No Jack Smith. And they'll say, well, you're going to shut down the government. OK. You want Zelensky? No Jack Smith. That's a popular position. And by the way, if you pick the fights, you can win. Majority of people are not in favor of the criminalization of Donald Trump. Jack Smith is the bright line. No Jack Smith, period. Jack Smith and his entire operation. Now, this is an interesting question, Blake and the team. Is Jack Smith an essential government worker or not if there was a shutdown? If we shut down the government, does that mean that Jack Smith and his team would still be operating? Now, again, one of the most frustrating things we go through every time there's a government shutdown is all of a sudden they say, well, these are essential and not essential government workers. If they're not essential, why do they have jobs? If they're not essential, why do they operate? Now, under Bob Mueller, when Bob Mueller was a special counsel, his office continued to work in the event of a government shutdown. OK, but even beyond a government shutdown, we need to defund Jack Smith, line item Jack Smith, carve it out and say, Jack Smith, you do not get another penny of U .S. taxpayer dollars, period. That's a good way to end Jack Smith. And the House Republicans have the entire ability to do that. We need to find the parts of the deep state that are grinding the American people to a halt. And it goes to the FBI, the DOJ, DHS, isolate them and starve that beast. And you're not going to get the entire budget down to zero. So get even more particular. Again, Congress, they don't do their job, unfortunately. So find Jack Smith's budget, which by the way, Jack Smith's budget is probably like $15 million. Like maybe, maybe, maybe like $9 million. And you could say in the funding resolution, you're done. Your team no longer authorized. These agencies have to go to Congress for money. And on the 30th of September, it is all bubbling up. Matt Gaetz and Andy Ogles have introduced similar pieces of legislation to deny federal funding for the special counsel. This is the line, everybody. We will not put up with our funding, our money to a Democrat super PAC, which is what Jack Smith has become. Jack Smith is a Democrat super PAC operator with subpoena power and the ability to put people in prison with handcuffs. Shut down the government over this, over the very specific principled stand. You go after Donald Trump and try to put him in 500 years in federal prison. The government's getting shut down. That would be hardball. I want to tell you guys about Good Ranchers.

Brian Mudd: There Is No Presumed Innocence for Pres. Trump
"It really is the of kind question that demands an answer. Now, Jack Smith and his filing to the court seeking a speedy trial cited the public interest in a speedy trial being granted. Now look, no doubt there's public interest in all these cases that are being brought against Trump, not just the two that Jack Smith is bringing in federal court, but the New York case, the Georgia case. Yeah. Lots of public interests. Okay. However, what about Trump's personal interests? You know, denizens. How backwards is it that there is no presumed denizens here? Very complicated cases, extraordinarily complicated cases, far more complicated than the average trial that takes 18 months to get there. Right. How is it that he doesn't have presumed denizens and that surpasses the public interest his right for his legal team to have time to adequately prepare for defense? Why is it that other federal cases which have brought been sooner will be pushed back? Because here's the other thing. If you have decided trials in these courts with Trump. Nobody will talk about the other cases that are being around moved to accommodate. Right. But there are there are other people that will either be denied justice in a timely manner or whatever. I mean, whatever the legal coin. But their legal situations be will altered to account for this. Isn't that interesting? So Donald Trump was indicted on August 1st for the January 6th related charges. The March 4th date for a trial to begin provides his legal defense with a total of seven months or just thirty nine. Thirty nine percent of the time usually allocated for a legal defense to be prepared.

"Yeah, I mean, I would be interested in that. You know better than I, the process of what the president can be made to do. But if we're subpoenaing everybody, let's subpoena everybody, I guess. Do you think it can be held in D.C. and be fair? No, I do not think that, actually. Do you think anybody thinks that? It's tough. Do you think anybody thinks it can be fair? I mean, does anyone dispute that that's a show trial? I think that people fool themselves into thinking the fact that it's not fair is in fact just. That's what the left has been doing all around. The fact that it's not fair and it's tilted his way is just because it's very bad and he's very bad. And therefore, that's fine. That's what people have been fooling themselves into thinking about all of these mechanisms since they've been trying to get Trump. And it has been a disservice to the country because even if you dislike Trump and you don't think he's going about things the right way, you don't blow up the norms to get him. But that's what they've been doing. But Mary Catherine, we only have a minute. They're not going to stop. I mean, it's going to be it's going to be it's good for ratings. We're going to see MSNBC go crazy. I don't know about your old network. I just think every leftist like Kyle Cheney, who's chirping at me on Twitter this morning, every leftist with a platform is going to chirp about this and they're not going to know anything. Well, yeah, and it's sort of a perfect storm for Democrats and the media. But I repeat myself, which is that every indictment, I think somewhat understandably makes him stronger with primary voters because they do feel that all this nonsense has been thrown at him and that it's been weaponized. In some cases, I think the like, for instance, the documents case, some of it's real, right. But he has had bad behavior that might creep into criminal. But a lot of people are discounting it, understandably. So they want to stand behind him. I understand that feeling. And then on the other side, Democrats benefit from that because the man least likely to win a general election in the primary for Republicans keeps getting bumps from his indictments. So it works. It works for them on another level. And I think they will continue to pound it as much as possible. Jack, there couldn't be Les Mis without a Javert and they can't be the drama without a Jack Smith. Mary Catherine Hamm will be listening to Getting Hammered this week to hear more of what you have to say. Thank you for joining me. Stay tuned America. Have you guys heard that President Biden is bragging about Bidenomics recently? I mean, talk about being out of touch. Just look at the rampant inflation making everything from gas to groceries cost more. Americans are paying $10,000 more every year for the same standard of living. Costs are higher, wages are lower, and Americans are poorer. That's the real Bidenomics. I'm thankful for Americans for Prosperity, the biggest, strongest fiscal conservative organization in the country. That's out there leading the charge against the president's reckless economic policies. You can always count on Americans for Prosperity to take on this White House false claims with proven principled solutions. That's why AFP has launched the new campaign called Prosperity is Possible, advocating for solutions we know will work, like ending the reckless spending driving inflation, unleashing energy abundance, and empowering the American workforce. Here's the good news. You don't sit on the sideline and watch Bidenomics ruin America. You'll be part of a movement for freedom and opportunity that fights and wins. Go to Americansforprosperity.org slash Hugh and get involved. That's Americansforprosperity.org slash Hugh. Americansforprosperity.org slash Hugh. Good morning, glory America. Bonjour, hi Canada. I'm Hugh Hewitt on a very, very, very troubling morning for America and the future of America as political speech is attempted to be criminalized, in my opinion, by the Javert of America, Jack Smith. But I don't know what Jim how are you? Jim, who am I? Jim, Hugh, you can tell the terrific start that I'm off to. Actually, it makes me kind of proud that you don't know what I think yet. It makes me kind of proud that like I am not a predictable, reflexive anti-Trump guy, not a predictable, reflexive pro-Trump guy. And that's probably why what I think is going to surprise you, some listeners, and some readers of Today's Morning Jolt, in part because I changed my mind kind of in the last 24 hours or so. We all knew this indictment was coming. We all knew Trump had tweeted about it or been on Truth Social about it. And I actually come to this and I think this is... I'll be surprised if this holds up in court. If a prosecution is held, it does not get rejected on appeal.
"jack smith" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"Right. And I think that it's a mistake to omit material like that. But the most jarring thing about this indictment is that it basically just accuses him of disinformation. This is a disinformation indictment. It says that you were spreading falsehoods, that you were undermining the integrity of the election. That's all part of the First Amendment. And I think that courts will look skeptically. He might have a fair shot with a D.C. jury and maybe a D.C. judge. He's going to have a harder time with the courts. And this reminds me of sort of McDowell complaint where he took the Virginia governor, got a conviction, and then it was unanimously overturned by the Supreme Court. It is a bridge too far. And one of the things I was looking for is I assumed that Smith had this type of aha moment, that there's something in there that the January 6th committee didn't find that supported. We heard about witness tampering. It's not in there. I mean, everything in this indictment is basically what has been discussed in the news. Now, by the way, the other thing that is not in here is conspiracy for incitement. Not in here is a seditious conspiracy. Those were the claims that Democrats used in the impeachment and said that the evidence was absolutely clear. People like Schiff and others said that he's clearly guilty of those crimes. Well, they're not in here. They're not in there because they can't be proved. Stay tuned. Do you lose your weight yet? I've got my Ph.D. weight loss dot com as a sponsor of this show. So I want to know, have you lost? Are you back down below the red line yet? I am. I am hovering around it. I've got like another pound and a half to go. Eight, six, four, six, four, four, nineteen hundred. That's eight, six, four, six, four, four, nineteen hundred. Because the stress level is going to be high around here for a few months. It's it's doing stuff. Last night, I was I grabbed a handful of M &Ms because I needed the sugar. How are you going to blame Jack Smith? Jack Smith. Jack Smith kept me from losing the last pound. You better call Rachel at my weight loss. Well, I'm confessing it openly. Eight, six, four, six, four, four, nineteen hundred. Yes. There is responsible for you not getting the weight. Yes, that's exactly right. Wayne did lose 50 pounds. I'm going to subpoena him. Yeah, subpoena him. You might get subpoenaed. Yes. Stay tuned America. I'm Hugh Hewitt.

"And because the guy's on trial for his life, so it's due process. He gets every benefit of the doubt. He gets to bring in every witness because they're trying to prove he didn't believe it, that it was a conspiracy, that he was trying to overthrow the government of the United States. He wasn't charged with insurrection or sedition, by the way. He's charged with false statements, basically, to the public. It's really, truly a terrible thing. But I tweeted that and immediately, Kyle Cheney, who works for Politico. Now, I don't know Kyle Cheney. He's a graduate of Boston University and went to work in 2006. I looked up his bio. I wanted to find out where GAU was from because he's the senior legal correspondent. I thought, where did he get his law degree from? Turns out that he began his career as a reporter covering Massachusetts politics for the Statehouse News. He went to Politico in 2012, covering the Affordable Care Act. Then he did the 2014 midterms, then the 2016 presidential election. He joined the congressional team after 2016. He became one of the leading reporters on the Trump impeachment inquiry in 2019. And he regularly appears on CNN, MSNBC and C-SPAN. I've not met Kyle. I have no idea if he's a nice guy, good guy, but he's not a very bright guy because he tweeted back about me saying, boy, they're going to spin everyone from Zuckerberg to the 51. This is not how any of this works. Of course, Trump can vow to subpoena everyone under the sun. But aside from getting credulous headlines, the odds of testimony from these far flung randos being admissible and relevant to this case are dot, dot, dot, nil. Now, I ask you, he has no legal training. He's hung around a few lawyers. He went to the impeachment trial. He went to BU, not to BU Law, which is fine law school. I don't think he knows anything about defending a state of mind trial. I don't think he has any idea what a reasonable doubt is. I don't think he has any idea about how far reaching the subpoena is or what the judge has the power is or the change of venue that's upcoming. He doesn't know anything. And I have doing this since 1980, right? Went to law school in 1980, have been practicing and I remain an active member of the D.C. bar and the California bar, though I'm no longer practicing. I do give legal advice on occasion for the friends and family. And I've dealt with constitutional issues in the White House, the Department of Justice. I've held every clearance the United States has for counterintelligence. I understand what the 51 former counterintelligence officials is. I would be 52 if I signed it, but I wouldn't sign any stupid letter like that. Political letter. And so I'm going to tell you right now, much of what you hear, much of what you read are going to come from people who have no qualifications, none, zero, other than hanging around with a bunch of other reporters who talk to lawyers who have clients that they want to advance the point of view. It's the same people who fell for the Steele dossier. It's the same people who fell for Strzok and Page. It's the same people who fell from a cave. It's the same people who fell for Comey. It's the same people who won't look at Biden. It's the same people who thought the Hunter laptop was fake and it was Russian disinformation. The same people are going to tell you that John Laurel doesn't know what he is doing. John Laurel went to Georgetown and Georgetown Law, practiced at one of the best firms in the country, started his own firm, and by the way, was an assistant United States attorney in the Eastern District of New York. Now, that's not the famed Southern District, but it's pretty doggone good. And I'm here to tell you, most of what you hear is just going to be absolute rubbish because they have no idea what they're talking about. I may be wrong in some of my predictions and points of view. As Napoleon said, I've been mistaken so often that I no longer blush when I find one. I don't blush because lawyers are going to be wrong half the time. But at least we have a point of view and some experience on which to basis. Now, I've been teaching con law since 1996. I teach the impeachment cases every year. I teach US v. Nixon. I teach Bush v. Gore. I teach everything having to do with anything. And there is no precedent. We've never tried former president. We've never had an indictment like this. But we do have Brandenburg. I'd love to know what Kyle Cheney thinks about Brandenburg. All right. Doesn't even know when Brandenburg was decided or what the facts are. I teach it every semester that I teach. So I'm not dumping on Kyle Cheney, though I am. I'm sure he's a nice young man. All right. I'm sure he is. Like Olivia Beaver is coming in. Nice young people in DC who are paid to have opinions whether or not they're right, wrong, or have any credibility behind them. But there are two people in broadcast and exactly two that I can think of who have any background at this level of the law. Mark Levin and me. Welcome back, America. The whole show is about this outrageous indictment brought by Jack Smith. I'm trying to immunize you against terrible takes you'll hear forever on the media and from people like Kyle Cheney at Politico. They really just don't know what they're talking about. They want Trump to go to jail. They have no idea what they're talking about. No idea. They want people to go to jail and they just have no idea. They love this show and they have no idea what's going to happen down the road. The attempt to criminalize deceptive speech by politicians. What a fool's errand. What a nightmare. And Jack Smith, the Javert of American politics, deputized by the the fading and infirm Merrick Garland, who was appointed, nominated and confirmed by the infirm, when confirmed by the infirm, Joe Biden. He was confirmed by the Senate saying, oh, I've got nothing to say. Just ask Jack Smith and Jack Smith talking about January 6th. The indictment isn't about seditious conspiracy. Not in there. It's about the president defrauding the United States and not believing what he believed. And they're going to get they had a proof state of mind. Oh, my gosh. Andrew McCarthy got number one on with Brett Baer last night. I think unfortunately, Brett, this is as weak as it was foretold to be. You see a lot of deceitful conduct. But the problem I think Jack Smith has is that Congress has not enacted statutes that directly criminalize the behavior that Smith is talking about. So what he has to do is distort statutes in order to try to pigeonhole the behavior into them. So, for example, the Supreme Court was very clear in May, in two cases where they threw out convictions against cronies of former Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, that fraud in the United States means to assets and that to the extent that, you know, Congress has tried to expand that into this idea of, you know, fraud that creates deceptive government practices, the statutes that are on the books now are vague and otherwise Congress hasn't criminalized that. So I think what you have is the case comes down to can he prove that Trump believed the things that he was saying, notwithstanding all the evidence to the contrary. But even if he could get over that hurdle, which I think is daunting, I do think that you have the problem that he has extravagantly stretched these statutes in order to try to capture this behavior. And that's because this is really a proxy for what should have been a political impeachment process and leading to the criminal justice system, the failure of Congress to carry out a successful impeachment. Let's go to cut number two by Andrew McCarthy. Well, just to start with what I heard, Brett, that was one of the most demagogic presentations I've ever seen in a high profile criminal case. Anyone who listened to that, any normal person reacting to that would assume that Trump was alleged to have carried out the Capitol riot. The entire presentation that he made was not about what the core charges in his case are. It was about the Capitol riot and the security personnel who were injured in the Capitol riot and who had to fight to defend the Capitol riot. And then you turn to his indictment. He's not charged with the Capitol riot. So if that is what he has to resort to in order to sell his case to the public, I think that's very telling in terms of what of how compelling his case is. As far as the timeline is concerned, I think he's going to have if it's a good judge, we'll have to see. He'll have a very hard time getting this case to trial because having decided to already indict him on the Mar-a-Lago case, he's not in a good position to go to court and say, as he said in his remarks, that he wants a speedy trial and he wants to get this case to trial. Now, I know for political reasons, they'd love to have the Capitol riot, which he's underscoring in front of the voters in the run up to the election. But as a legal matter, by bringing the first case first, he's now crimped the amount of time that Trump has to prepare for what looks like it's going to be a legally complex trial. So I think he has a very hard time, if you get a good judge, getting this case to trial. Okay, Jonathan Turley, cut number three.

"It is a very dark day for America. The politicization of politics, the attempted show trial of Donald Trump on nothing new. There's nothing new in this indictment. It is not the documents case. I understand the documents case. I've told you the obstruction charge in the documents case is the one that's real and has substance. He ought not to have been charged. He ought not to have been subpoenaed, but he was subpoenaed. I mean, you get a subpoena, you got to respond to it. And you know that I think Donald Trump lost the election. I said it the day after I wrote the Washington Post the day after, you know, I condemned January 6th as it was happening. You know, I've argued about it with the president. You know, I've told the president after the election that he lost. And I've told the president on air that we are not going to discuss it because I don't believe any of it. I don't believe that Carrie Lake won. I'm just a center right Republican who happens to be a pretty good lawyer, teaches con law, served in the Department of Justice, served in the White House counsel's office practice for 30 years. I know what I'm talking about. So this segment is devoted to you understanding who to talk about. Earlier today, I played this clip, cut number 17, John Loro, Donald Trump's lawyer last night with Brett Barrett, cut number 17. One thing I will say, though, in 2020, the Mr. Trump's campaign had a few weeks to gear up and present evidence and it was very difficult. We now have the ability in this case to issue our own subpoenas and we will relitigate every single issue in the 2020 election in the context of this litigation. All right, so they have the subpoena power. Now, he's been charged with crimes that go to his state of mind. And there is an attempt made most obvious in paragraph 83 of the indictment to prove that he didn't believe that he'd been defrauded. Paragraph 83 is one of the very few new things in this. On the evening of January 3rd, the defendant met for a briefing on an overseas national security issue with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs and other senior national security advisors. The chairman briefed the defendant on the issue, which had previously arisen in December, as well as possible ways the defendant could handle it. The defendant's the president, of course. When the chairman and another advisor recommended the defendant take no action because Inauguration Day was only 17 days away, and of course, any action could trigger something unhelpful, the defendant calmly agreed, stating, yeah, you're right. It's too late for us. We're going to give that to the next guy. So, you see what Javert, Jack Smith, is trying to prove is that the president did not believe the then president, now former president, didn't believe what he was doing in saying on January 6th. Okay, that's state of mind. That's what they're trying to prove. He didn't believe any of it. It's still not criminal, by the way, in the same way that throwing a Hail Mary pass is not criminal, in the same way that trying a hook and ladder isn't criminal in a football game. It's not criminal to try anything because you honestly believe maybe this will work. Maybe Mike Pence can put it aside. We've never been here before, and that was a wild cycle, and everything went wrong. And we heard Laurel say that I'm going to subpoena everyone. So, you know, I immediately think, okay, they're going to bring in Zuckerberg to talk about the Zuck Bucks and where they went. They're going to bring in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that made up stuff as they went along. They were especially going to bring in the 51 former intelligence officials who helped get the old Twitter to censor the Hunter Biden laptop. Everything is on the table, everything.

"Well, anyway, John Laura is not putting up with this. Cut number 17. One thing I will say, though, in 2020, the Mr. Trump's campaign had a few weeks to gear up and present evidence and was very difficult. We now have the ability in this case to issue our own subpoenas and we will relitigate every single issue in the 2020 election. In the context of this litigation, it gives President Trump an opportunity that he has never had before, which is to have subpoena power since January six in a way that can be exercised in federal courts. Yeah, but keep going. What does that mean? Keep playing that, whatever that came from, because. OK, then never mind, it takes too long to get context of this litigation. It gives President Trump an opportunity that he has never had before, which is to have subpoena power since January six in a way that can be exercised in federal court. What you're talking about, the states, the states did that. Each individual state certified the elections. They were signed by the governors, many of them Republican governors and many of them Republican secretaries of state that signed off and certified this election results before they came to Washington, D.C. And we had what was January 6th. So what you're talking about was done. It was no, no, I'm sorry, but you're missing what what Professor Eastman's advice was. Professor Eastman said that the state legislatures had not opined and weighed in on the changes that had been done in those various states. But each one of those states since that time, now we're talking about two years later, has not reopened those cases. They have not some of them have had audits, but they have not reopened the 2020 election from that point of view. And some of them are Republican legislatures. And it's never been presented to the states. Now, what we're going to have is not just a civil trial, but a criminal trial for Mr. Trump exercising his right to speech. So there may be disagreement about what happened. But the bottom line is we're now treating this as a criminal case rather than as we're doing, talking about this in the context of politics and free speech. And so he has a subpoena power to bring in anyone who can prove his state of mind.
"jack smith" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"I would like them to try to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Donald Trump believed that these allegations were false. What did he see in real time? He saw changes in election procedure in the middle of the game, being carried out by executive level people at the state level, election officials, but not the state legislatures. He had an advice. Pause for a second there, Adam. I'm going to find where John Loro says we're going to subpoena everyone because I want people to hear that. I want them to hear if they missed Brett's show last night. John Loro is going to subpoena everybody. We're going to relitigate 2020. The 51 officials who signed that laptop, that's disinformation. Mark Zuckerberg in the Zuck Box. We're going to get the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. They're going to subpoena everyone. Wake up, America. This is a nightmare. Stay tuned. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt. This is a grim morning for America and I want to remind everyone. I missed yesterday and I want to thank Kurt Schleicher for sitting in for me and I'll be off on Friday and Monday, maybe Tuesday of next week as well, as we pack off everyone to go to their new duty assignment station. But I want to say this is a dark, dark day. Not because of Donald Trump, but because of what this portends for the future. And this trial is going to be a nightmare. I found the quote we want. John Loro is the new attorney for Donald Trump. And the first time I've seen him, very impressive. I looked up his background, very impressive. And again, I remind you, among all the broadcasters out there, the only people you ought to be listening to with opinions as opposed to questions is Mark Levin and me. We're the only people who actually know what we're doing. Mark, of course, served as the chief of staff to Attorney General Meason did so ably. He's written wonderfully on this, smart guy, wonderful lawyer. I, of course, University of Michigan Law School, D.C. Circuit clerkships for Judges McKinnon and Rob, into the Department of Justice for Bill Smith and Ed Meese, over to the White House Counsel's Office and General Counsel, two agencies and confirmed by the Senate, always with the highest clearances. Mark had the highest clearances. People have clearances and know how this stuff works. People who have been around the Department of Justice, they're the only host you ought to be listening to. Then you can have some interviewers like Brett Baer, who are very fair, who interview people like Jonathan Turley and Andrew McCarthy, who are very fair, have been often critical of the former president, but who are very fair. And then you listen to the president's lawyers. And if Jack Smith comes out and does other than grandstand, I mean, that speech, it was just so disgusting, actually disgusting for a prosecutor not to talk about the charges he brought, but about bad things that happened. And that's what he did. I want you to understand it was he's not defending it. And Merrick Garland, feeble old Merrick Garland say, I can't possibly talk about this. This is up to Jack Smith. It's like Joe Biden and Merrick Garland got together and said, we don't know what's going on. Let's give it to this guy from The Hague.

"Everything around you right now is a retribution presidency. So Orwellian into the untrained eye, they watch Mockingbird MSNBC. Oh, yeah, that would be really bad. Go get Trump. I hate him. The lack of self-awareness. It's troubling. It's really driven by an unclean spirit. I believe that that's a separate issue, but it's totally true. So we have these multiple efforts underway and let me finish on one and then I'm going to transition to the other because they're all kind of being playing out simultaneously. The way that they wanted it to go and it's not going to happen is these whiteboard people, the tabletop exercises, Aspen Institute, Sun Valley, Kenny Bunkport, Martha's Vineyard, the billionaire playgrounds where they have these long dinners and they have intel agency experts, Barack Hussein Obama, billionaires, and they all talk about it, which, yes, by definition is a conspiracy. Multiple actors working in harmony in tandem to accomplish a goal is the textbook definition of a conspiracy. It's happening. We know it. They admit it. We know it through the emails, Hunter Biden's laptop, John Brennan, Tony Blinken. They did it with Hunter Biden. This is not a question. They do it and they've done it before and they're doing it again. And you're actively living through what was masterminded. By the way, if you want evidence of a quote unquote conspiracy, how about Molly Ball's article, the shadow campaign that helped win the 2020 election? In Time magazine, she admitted and acknowledged that Mark Elias, private companies, public actors, nonprofits, unions all worked in tandem. In fact, so much so they had standing, standing Monday morning Zoom meetings. So I never want to hear again, oh, you're a conspiracy theorist. They brag about how they had different actors working in harmony and lockstep to obliterate the 2020 election from being anything that was fair, free, and open. And it's happening again. But it's different. This is, this is, this is like volume two or chapter two. This is the sequel. It's different. COVID is over with. That is done. I mean, Anthony Fauci's out in the hinterlands. He's doing his own thing, making a bunch of money in Georgetown. The whole COVID health thing out of popularity. Now, there might be another pandemic, but I don't think it's going to happen again because the American people have enlightened to it. So now they're going to volume two, sequel two. You are living through the second. And like almost all sequels, it's almost never as good as the first. I sure hope people see through it. So the 14th amendment, they're going to try to disqualify him. This is the ultimate backup plan. This is the riskiest one. And this is not risky, but it's a matter of timing. If Donald Trump were to win the presidency, he could preemptively pardon himself. You could also just have his vice president who might become president. This is an insurance plan and it's a sloppily put one together. Honestly, it's more likely they're doing this to try to bring down his favorability rating in the battleground states. OK, but this. They're trying to disqualify him from president for being a convicted rebellion rebel or insurrectionist or giving comfort or aid to enemies of the United States. We're going to keep on building out the 14th Amendment Disqualification Clause that most people on television are not mentioning. OK, so the GOP primary clown show. Look, Donald Trump won 85 percent of voters in our straw poll. He's up 60 points in West Virginia. Ron DeSantis is not catching fire or steam. Great governor failure to launch. Tragically for him, his announcement with Elon Musk on Twitter was not a one off thing. It was a canary in the coal mine of what has been a awfully clumsy presidential campaign. They're burning through cash. They're letting off staff. This is all in the public domain, by the way. It's not going well. They have small dollar donation problems. And to just icing on the cake, Ron DeSantis has come out today and he said, quote, Trump should have acted more forcefully on January 6th. Playing into all the narratives. So he's basically just poking you in the eye and being like, oh, Donald Trump is somewhat to blame for January 6th. You got to do one way or the other, Ron DeSantis. You can't do this middle ground. Either you speak honestly and say this is a political charge of the Stasi going after him or just say Donald Trump should be in prison. Like go Chris Christie or go Vivek. This middle ground, you're going to go down. The base does not like this nonsense. OK, does not like. So that's going on. So then we have this other aspect of it that I want to spend the remainder of our hour on, which there is one thing that could actually disrupt the Democrat plans. One guy that I've watched closely for 11 years that I've always found to be super interesting and fascinating. And we will talk about it. But let's now talk about the other insurance plan. The other backup plan. By the way, this is how afraid of Donald Trump and you they are. They have to concoct these incredibly expensive and complicated schemes that are all kind of working in rhythm in different places. The judicial side, the censorship side, the private actor side, the third party side. Yes, if you are not read up on no labels, we're about to educate you on it. No labels is starting to bubble up in the American zeitgeist. No labels is funded, I believe, largely through a 501 C for organization. Nothing wrong with that. We run 501 C for organizations and they keep their donors anonymous, which I believe is a constitutional right and needs to stay that way. Just interesting, though, we don't know who's exactly behind it. I do think it would be awfully revealing, though. Now, there were some articles that said no labels donors revealed. It's who you would expect, though. It's disaffected Republicans and center left Democrats that are coming together and they're presidential campaign promoting people like Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. They did a town hall in New Hampshire and some of the stuff in their, quote unquote, policy agenda seems reasonable to an untrained eye. They want to lower the public debt. I'm all for that. They want to lower health care costs. I mean, you might as well say we want people to be happy and to live longer. OK, like not exactly complicated type stuff, right? Other stuff, the immigration stuff is awful, right? Where they want a mass amnesty, all that. But it appeals to this kind of yearning of I don't like Trump. I don't like Biden. I don't like Trump. I don't like Biden. And so no labels are starting to increase their spending. And again, just this idea of no labels. It's obviously perfectly poll tested. You guys can look it up. They have a website. It's built to honestly make you not hate them. If you're a Republican or a Democrat, they call themselves, we are the common sense majority, which of course they're not. This is largely Chamber of Commerce talking points of an unfettered defense or let's just say unapologetic, that's a better way to put it, defense of neoliberalism. That's what it is. Invade the world, invite the world, money to Ukrainian oligarchs, keep the borders open, free trade at all costs. We are the last bastion of neoliberalism. Now, honestly, I would rather some of this no labels crap than like Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. And that's exactly what they want me to say. They want me to say that because of how radical the left-wingers have become, you go to the website, nolabels.org, we're a national movement of common sense Americans pushing our leaders together to solve our country's biggest problems. Happy talk. That's what this is. This is appealing to your highest level of desire of utopian common sense reconciliation. But they're not going to be doing this in a way you might think. They might draft Mitt Romney or Joe Manchin. What if I told you no labels that has serious money behind it is going to focus on states that are comfortably Republican? I'm going to explore how no labels and a professor from Princeton could disrupt the 2024 race. The Lincoln Project comes out in tweets that no labels run for the presidency. Manchin and no labels know they have no path to victory. They're only in it to spoil the Biden candidacy and to satisfy their narcissism and their donors. OK, so I disagree. So there's a way that no labels could do this to hurt Joe Biden or help Joe Biden or hurt Donald Trump and help Donald Trump or a little bit above. So, for example, let's go through a state like Utah. If Mitt Romney was the no labels candidate with Joe Manchin running in Utah and they won Utah, that is a way to subtract from the potential Republican nominee, Donald Trump's electoral vote total. Utah has an independent streak through it. A lot of moderate Republicans, a lot of people that yearn for a better tomorrow. So Mitt Romney or Joe Manchin could potentially make inroads in a state like Utah. Very, quote unquote, open minded state. Arizona is another one that could hurt Joe Biden. So if no labels drafted Kyrsten Sinema as a candidate in Arizona, it's it would actually be better for Donald Trump for a third party candidate to take those electoral votes than potentially have Kyrsten Sinema get them. So I play around a lot at the website 270 to win dot com. And the website only allows you to have red and blue allocation of states. It does not even allow you to say what if a third party ticket was able to start to win some of these? The math starts to get very wacky. The idea behind this is that there are many who feel politically homeless. No labels can be used as a political surgical strike. So potentially, if no labels were to run in 10 run hard, by the way, in 10 or 12 states, it could potentially they could potentially win a state like New Hampshire. And take that away from Joe Biden, or they could run in a state that's comfortably Republican like Idaho. Where there is a a new independent streak in Idaho with a lot of Californians moving there or no labels could go and win a state like Nevada, especially in the Mountain West, where there's a lot of comfortability there. Now, add on top of it. Yeah, let's actually play cut forty six. I'm glad you sent that. It's starting to get headlines, everybody. There's no guarantee if no labels hurts Trump or helps Trump. I think the agenda is to hurt Trump. But again, when you introduce a third party variable, you have no idea which way the coin is going to end up, heads or tails. It's complete risk and chance. John Huntsman is now saying do not leave out the possibility of third party run. Former governor of Utah, very well liked in Utah, coming from a billionaire family in Utah, the Huntsman family. Play cut forty six. Governor Huntsman, I had no labels organizers on a few weeks ago on the show. They said that it wouldn't launch a presidential ticket if it was anybody else besides former President Trump and President Biden head to head. Well, I wouldn't jump to any conclusions. I know everybody read is interested in the horse race. Joe and I are here together because we started this endeavor years and years ago, back when nobody was paying any attention to it. And here we are with the people now saying and poll after poll will will will reinforce this. We want something different to break up the gridlock and to get us out of this doom, this doom loop that we're in. So that could be used as a way to hurt Biden, hurt Trump, hurt them both. We have no idea what the agenda behind it is. I believe that it has been masterminded as a way to hurt Donald Trump, but I think there might be some unintended consequences there. But a new another person that is being ignored by the media and it's not RFK Junior, who's running for the president, who is ridiculously articulate and he is a smart person. His ideas are whack, but he's charismatic and he's running a Marxist black nationalist campaign. And there's a thermonuclear weapon to be detonated in black America with their pent up hatred of white liberalism is Cornel West play cut 41. How real is your run for the presidency and what is the likelihood the Green Party is going to be on the ballot in all 50 states? Well, we're in the process, my brother, of gaining that ballot access in my run for the presidency, the same for my run for truth and justice ever since I was 15 years old. OK, so if he ends up running as a Green Party candidate in the social media era, he will be able to easily get three or four percent and take that away from the Democrats. That could be decisive in heavily black Georgia, heavily black Wisconsin. Cornel West is very charismatic. He's got a sharp tongue. And I mean that in a praising way. I'd love to have him on the show and discuss him. I'm not obviously supportive. He will get AOC levels of popularity, has this kind of Martin Luther King civil rights vibe to him. He talks like a black preacher. And I mean that in the most praiseworthy way. Again, his ideas are from Neptune. They are wacky. But he could splinter the Democrat primary. What is the lesson?

Sometimes elections are meeting points for decades or centuries old, tensions to be resolved, and that's what 2024 is becoming. In 2016, it was a shot heard around the world. Donald Trump took the administrative state by surprise. Never should have happened, according to Peter Strzok's smirk. We saw his text messages. We're not going to let it happen. Hillary Clinton was prideful. Pride is an attribute of the left and work. All those guys took it easy. Donald Trump went for the jugular. They're not going to let that happen again unless we overcome them. And there are all these efforts that are happening simultaneously. And I just want to say this. You know, I get plenty of negative emails on Donald Trump. If you cannot see that this is bigger than Trump. I want to say I feel sorry for you, but honestly, I'm repulsed by you. By now, if you are really still playing into this, like, oh, well, Trump has done this to himself or Trump's tweets and Trump's this and Trump's that, you really don't understand the broader game at play because of how fixated you are on a personality or ego dispute. Wake up. This is not about tweets. It's not about personality. Any of that. This is about a crossing of the Rubicon of the deep state that is believing the only way through is forward of these Marxist revolutionaries using handcuffs, subpoenas, indictments and convictions and a rigged system to tell you who they want to become president. James Comey is yammer in his mouth. Mr. Deep State, the cheerleader of deep state. If there was a mascot cheerleader is not the best word. Here's the word I'm looking for. If there was a mascot for the deep state, it would be six foot eight. James Comey play cut forty three. You said that Trump poses a near existential threat to the rule of law. But tell me a little bit about the specifics of what he could try to do. What do you mean by that? Well, think about what four years of a retribution presidency might look like. He could order the investigation and prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies. I'm sure I'm on the enemies list because the president constitutionally does oversee the executive branch entirely, which includes the Department of Justice, prosecutors and investigators. Man, what would a presidency look like where the government goes after people they don't like? I don't know. That's a strange thought. You mean like putting Steve Bannon in federal prison, like going after James O'Keefe, raiding Rudy Giuliani's apartment, January six prisoners in a gulag, indicting Donald Trump, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn. We would know what that looks like. You're living through a retribution presidency.

"You see how it works. You have state run media that pays former intel agency officials and then you have college campuses that pay the corrupt bureaucrats that destroy your life. Anthony Foushee, Georgetown, Peter Strzok, Georgetown, Hillary Clinton. I'm not sure if it's Georgetown, but she's paid to lecture. So this whole system protects itself. OK, so Donald Trump is going to be indicted. The contents of the indictment we do not know. But if I were to guess and predict and you heard it here first, it's going to be a seditious conspiracy charge. I don't think they're going to go for insurrection. If they go for insurrection, I will be even surprised because that is that is a really high mark watermark. But it's possible. I'm not saying it's impossible. So this whole ballgame, it's a backup plan. This is the backup plan. Is the 14th Amendment now the 14th Amendment is unbelievably important, obviously, but it's it's way too broadly written. I'm going to be honest, it's way too broadly written. The 14th Amendment solved a lot of problems and it's created some problems. It should be, I think, narrowed in scope. Why? 14th Amendment is brought up by every left wing lunatic on voting rights cases and civil rights stuff and debt abolition, literally. Forgive my debt because the 14th Amendment way too broadly written. It was ratified in July of 1868 and it's been used in ways that was not the intent. OK, so the key here is this question of rebellion. And the 14th Amendment has five different sections. And remember, when we were having the debt ceiling debate, there was this question of can Joe Biden just raise the debt ceiling on his own because the 14th Amendment. So we're talking about 14th Amendment from all persons born or naturalized United States are subject to the jurisdiction thereof and citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law. That's obviously really important. But then it goes on to say, I think it's in Section two here, Section three. Thank you, Blake. Yes, is insurrection. So remember the context of the ratification of this amendment. This was post-Civil War. So they said, look, if you have led an insurrection against the United States government, you can't be president. Basically, they're saying Jefferson Davis, you can't become president. Robert E. Lee, I don't even know if Robert E. Lee was still alive in 1868, probably you can't become president. No person shall hold any office, civil or military under United States, having previously taken an oath as a member of Congress or as an officer of the United States to support the Constitution United States. Here's why they're indicting Trump. This is the whole ballgame right now. Shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. So the 14th Amendment is the disqualification ultimate backup plan. If no labels doesn't work, if the no Democrat primary doesn't work, if Chris Christie running his mouth doesn't work, if all the cable networks against him don't work, if Crossfire Hurricane 2.0 does not work, if trying to provoke the right wing to violence and we stay peaceful does not work, if the billions of dollars spent against Trump does not work, then they have an ultimate backup plan. And the ultimate backup plan was originally intended to deal with the Confederacy right after the Civil War. And so here's what they're going to do. They're going to indict Trump very soon. This is why we are. This is why it's moving so fast, because they understand there's a timeline issue, OK? They're going to indict Donald Trump on seditious conspiracy and or something akin to that. Blake can look at the criminal code and find it because there's all these different measures. But understand here shall have engaged insurrection, put that aside or rebellion against the same or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. So even if Donald Trump wins the White House, someone is going to sue. It will go up to the Supreme Court and say, look, he's a convicted felon in Washington, D.C. for giving aid to the enemies of the United States like the Oath Keepers.

And yes, there is a conductor who it is is actually not that important, but somebody is masterminding it. Maybe it's Soros, maybe it's Barack Hussein Obama, maybe it's James Comey. And he's like a liaison to the intel agencies. By the way, James Comey's run in his mouth a lot lately. It's very interesting. He's yammering on by these intel guys feel so empowered instead of getting handcuffs and prison sentences, they get cable news contracts.

"People versus shadow government, people versus shadow government. That's what 2024 is becoming. MSNBC is saying it out loud. They're freaking out. They're calling it fascism, which is hilarious. We're actually living under fascism. So Orwellian. Eugene Robinson is one of the most frustrating people to see on television. I won't call him dumb. I actually don't think he's that stupid. But what he says is so untrue. It's pathological lying on television. He knows he's lying. Play cut 28. This is why Jack Smith is moving at a rapid pace. Play cut 28. He's talking about wanting to essentially fire the people in the federal bureaucracy who who know how to run things, who makes the country work. I mean, this is textbook fascism. And it's it's outrageous. It's incredibly dangerous, not just to to our system of democracy and our democratic values. It's just it's just dangerous. Yeah, danger. I mean, how their language is so simple and shallow. They use the same 10 words over and over again. Dangerous to democracy. It's dangerous. And just can we just dwell on a second? Make our system work. Who exactly is making the system work? Nobody's saying is protecting our system from people that dare question it. This is exactly how Praetorian Guards and permanent administrative states operate. Very difficult to disassemble them. But Donald Trump is saying people versus shadow government, if you want to frame the election to your friends. Oh, what is 2024 about? It's about the economy. Very important. Is it about immigration? Very important. All of those issues cannot be acted upon if you have a separate government actually calling the shots. And Eugene Robinson is telling you that. OK, so Jack Smith knows this. Jack Smith is a proxy of the Leviathan. He's a proxy of this fourth branch of government that the founding fathers would have found repulsive. And so Donald Trump has said, in fact, he mentions Turning Point in his statement, which is, you know, nice to be part of history in this sense. I guess it was his last public event before this. Wow. On Sunday night, while I was with my family, just having arrived from the Turning Point event in Florida, where I won the straw poll against all of the candidates with eighty five point seven percent, I got news horrifying news that I was getting indicted. I'm not going to read the whole thing. It's worth reading. Actually, if you go to Truth Social, some of it is some of it is really news. Some of it is just kind of repeating what we already know with this. We're going to dive into it. But I think the more important component of this is Donald Trump is preempting it. But this is part of. One of the several ways that have been war games, understand you are living through something that has been planned. There is a whiteboard somewhere composed by someone, maybe it's Mark Elias, maybe it's Barack Hussein Obama, maybe it's James Comey, maybe it's a mixture of all of them. Maybe it's people in Kennebunkport, Martha's Vineyard, Aspen, maybe it's in Sun Valley right now. Any one of these kind of billionaire playgrounds where these guys hang out in the summer, I guarantee you this has all been masterminded, might have been masterminded last summer. None of this is just like accidental. Behavior or accidental efforts, no, no, no, this is centralized, this is planned, and I'm going to prove it to you, I'm going to prove it to you because there's five or six efforts, you know, try to get prop up as much irritation and annoyance in the Republican primary to have people like Chris Christie run, try to make as much noise, try to bring down Trump's favorables in the states that matter. Have this no labels thing, and I got to tell you, we're going to spend a lot of time on the no labels thing in the coming days and weeks, it's super important, no one is talking about it. And then finally, the criminal stuff was actually not finally, it's one of many, the criminal stuff, which involves the 14th Amendment, which is the whole ball game. That is the ultimate insurance policy. That is the if everything else falls apart, we have the 14th Amendment.

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at Andrew and Todd Dotcom. We have a really important show in store with you today, we're going to go to the breaking news that Donald Trump has announced he's likely going to face more federal charges brought to you by Jack Smith. This is not a surprise. We have been predicting it. This is a 14th Amendment play. But I want to put this in context. We're going to go through the details of it. So it's very important in context. There are several efforts underway, some of which that are obvious. And we talk about some of which that are not so obvious to prevent a populist nationalist conservative from becoming president in 2024. This is a no joke election. You know, they like to lecture us about democracy. We are not a democracy. We are a republic. But let's pretend what they mean is representative government, which we do have representative government, and we should applaud representative government. We're not just plotted, we should support it. None of this is in the tradition of the founding father's vision of representative government. These are extra constitutional. Organizations efforts underway to stop you from having a voice, they detest you, they hate you. If you're a Christian, if you're a plumber, if you work with your hands, if you're an ordinary American, they hate your values. They hate everything you stand for, and they are playing for keeps. The 2024 election, they are playing for keeps. There's a lot of troubling news, and there are some other developments that might really be difficult for Joe Biden and the Democrats. So it's not all bad news. Let's start with the news today. I'm going to allow Joe Scarborough, because I know you guys love Joe Scarborough. I get such a kick out of the audience. Any time I play a Joe Scarborough clip, I get all caps emails. And so I just want to say in advance, please send me those emails. I love receiving them. Stop playing MSNBC. I know I'm not doing it for your reaction. I'm just doing it to make sure this is your shot of expresso. I think it gets the audience on the edge of their seat. Which is MSNBC saying that Donald Trump is going to be indicted. OK, play cut 34. We have some significant breaking news. Jonathan Lemire, it looks like looks like another indictment, perhaps the most significant indictment may be coming. Donald Trump's way. Yeah, we may be on the verge of that in just a couple of days. Just in the last few minutes, Joe, Donald Trump posted on Truth Social, his fledgling social media site, to reveal this. I'm paraphrasing. He says he received a target letter from the Department of Justice from Jack Smith's office Sunday night, saying that he is indeed a target. Of the January 6th grand jury investigation, target of the grand jury January 6 investigation. OK, so we've been waiting for months about this. This is the serious one. This is the big one. This is the ballgame. This is the potential disqualifier. I have here a very handy turning point, USA, United States Constitution, which we will reference in just a second, because it all ties together. This is direct election interference. All that should be illegal. It's not. It's the federal government saying to you, the American people, we don't trust you. We cannot allow a mandate from the American people to go after the administrative state, which Donald Trump is pledging. And I think that's a really important connection before we go any further. Donald Trump is pledging to purge the deep state, to purge Leviathan using schedule F. This is one of several reasons why they are not playing around. There's other reasons. There's personal revenge, pent up resentment. I don't like him. He's a threat. He's annoying. We got to get rid of him. Uniparty hates him. The Ukraine thing is part of the southern border is part of it. But make no mistake. The if you want to get Washington, D.C. into an active posture. Say that I am your retribution, I'm going to fire people from the administrative state. The administrative state is now fighting for its life. This has been bubbling up and will result in a volcanic eruption ever since Woodrow Wilson decided to defecate on the United States Constitution. This is 100 years in the making. Woodrow Wilson versus the American people. It comes to fruition in 2024. For decades, Republicans have turned our back on the administrative state. Oh, it's fine. We can make them work for us. Not a big deal. They're like postal workers. And, you know, we don't want to declare war on it. George W. Bush was a fan of the administrative state. Even Ronald Reagan was underwhelming in disassembling it. George H.W. Bush was a creature of the administrative state, former CIA director. They got rid of Richard Nixon, the administrative state took out Richard Nixon, according to Bobby Kennedy Jr., the administrative state murdered his uncle. So this fourth branch of government, J. Edgar Hoover, Department of Homeland Security, brought to you by your Republican president, George W. Bush. All of this was a constant theme of a fourth branch of government, of an unelected bureaucracy that really runs the country. The people are no longer sovereign and it's bubbling up to this massive prize fight.
