But for me to find out that my son was calling my name and I was only feet away, but did not even hear him. You have dope clues. How I feel right now. Chris Fox, for CBS News, Memphis. Law enforcement agencies around the country are on alert for protests. They hope won't be violent. That includes Minneapolis, near where a white police officer was convicted of killing George Floyd nearly three years ago. WCC's rusty ray that's readying its emergency operations planning the event of any disruptions of people choose to protest that includes coordinating with all city and neighboring agencies and even having fencing ready to help support key infrastructure. Former House speaker Nancy Pelosi says she won't watch the just released body cam video of the attack at her husband Paul last year. A judge says the man who pepper sprayed police officer Brian Sidney during the capital insurrection should spend nearly 7 years in prison. CBS Christopher Cruise is in Washington sicknick, died of a stroke the day after the attack. His family had asked the judge to impose the harshest possible penalty. Prosecutors asked for a 7 and a half year prison term for 32 year old Julian cater, who pleaded guilty last year to two counts of assaulting police. Former vice president Mike Pence says he takes full responsibility for the classified documents found at his home. He blames a flurry of last minute packing at the end of the Trump administration, and while I was not aware that those classified documents were in our personal residence. Let me be clear. Those classified documents should not have been in my personal residence. Mistakes were made, but Pence says that's no excuse, he says he gets his attorneys are cooperating with investigators.

Well, hello everybody. It is 6 O three, thanks for driving along with us on this Friday. Whoo, January the 27th, 41°. I'm Hillary Howard. I'm Sean Anderson top local story we're following this hour. It continues to be the possibility of protests tonight after the world watches the video of Memphis police officers viciously beating Tyree Nichols. Nichols died three days after that violent traffic stopped back in early January. D.C. police have activated all officers in anticipation of citywide demonstrations. D.C. police chief Robert Conte says the department welcomes people peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights, but he doesn't want to see any violence or property destruction. National security correspondent JJ green says protesters will be feeding off the police's response to tonight's demonstrations. Normally, it doesn't all end with a drop of a hat. If there's a significant response in any place or multiple places, it usually takes a while for it to end. And this is where, again, the patience comes in. And police need to do everything they can to not exacerbate whatever the situation is they're facing. And so I do think that it could go on if there is anything beyond well beyond today, but it depends on how police handle it. The video has been described as showing an inhumane attack. It'll be released at 7 o'clock this evening. Keep it here on WTO for details as they develop. New tonight, the January 6th rioter who assaulted capitol police officer Brian sicknick with bear spray has been sentenced to 80 months in prison. Dozens of capital police officers were in the courtroom for the sentencing of 32 year old Julian cater after he pleaded guilty to assaulting officers with a dangerous weapon. Now sicknick died, the day after the attacks, and while it was ruled to be a natural of natural causes, caters, actions that day contributed. The nearly 70 year sentence is minus the nearly two years he served in the D.C. jail since being arrested. 6 O 5 road

Emboldened Biden, Dems push ban on so-called assault weapons
"President Biden raged the idea of trying to pass an assault weapons ban after two mass shootings in a week, but he'll likely face an uphill battle in Congress. It was Thanksgiving Day after 6 people were gunned down in a Walmart and 5 killed at a Colorado Springs gay bar. I'm gonna try to get rid of a subway. On NBC's meet the press, Colorado governor Jared polis, says something needs to be done. It's about mental health. Of course, it's about gun policy. Of course, it's about anti LGBTQ rhetoric. But the Democrat says it can be done without invoking a ban. Where you need an additional license or background check for some of the most high powered weapons. Also on the show, Kentucky Republican congressman James comer. Cities that have the most strict gun laws like Washington, D.C., Chicago, these are the cities with the highest rate of crimes comer says he'd support legislation aimed at improving mental health access and boosting law enforcement.

They got to prop him up. And yeah, for one on Twitter said, so when do we start talking about how Jared polis, what he just did to Colorado and desantis did to Florida, dominated a once purple state by nearly 20 points and pulled the entire party up with him. Same thing Whitmer in Michigan. But I get it because, oh, we got to find the Republican, you know, it's going to be the horse race, but it is extraordinary. And again, it's a gay man and a woman. Is it because I don't know. I don't know why. The coverage is not the same as desantis, right? Yeah, well, you know, one of these things is not like the others. And I think part of it plays into the media's want to have drama with Trump. So they see that they can play into that. And you know, I will love to hear the media sending people out to Florida to cover why some people are voting against their best interest. But I think what we're going to be treated to is the media going out there to figure out why Democrats just can't connect with white people. Yeah, yeah. Exactly.

"On 8 90 WLS. Be heard, call 8 four four four the USA now to let Dan know what you think, 844-484-3872, the Dan bongino show. So I hope those three top line takeaways really resonate today because I warned about them yesterday. Again, I got a lot of feedback on yesterday's show where people are like, Dan, you sound a little a little depressed. And you know, I didn't want to say it. I don't like spending people's wheels, but obviously I was because I could sense it. I could sense yesterday that we were kind of losing momentum a little bit, that the tribalism was kicking in. I wasn't really, I wasn't really feeling it. I don't know, man. When that big mo is there, it's there. That big Moe that momentum when it's there, it's right there. And I don't know, I just wasn't feeling it as much. It didn't, honestly, folks, I felt it after the youngkin, New Jersey race, when governor Phil Murphy almost lost. And governor youngkin won. I said, we're really onto something. But after the Candice, Kansas referendum on abortion, I said to myself, you know, they're ruthless. This is a sacrament to them. And I'm going to go into that later. What abortion and the kids and TikTok and all that don't go anywhere again, there's going to be a lot of deep analysis in the show today. But after the Kansas referendum, where the pro abortion pro death crowd, one in Kansas. I want proof I was sensing something was up. Go back and listen to my Friday podcast with Robert Cahill, the pollster from Trafalgar. What's the second or third question I asked them? I said Robert, I don't know this Kansas thing's got me worried. To the left, killing babies is like, that's a thing, man. That's like a sacrament to them. And if for some reason losing the culture, I know why we lost the culture, but the culture is so married to this idea. It's like a ship will lift to say you're part of the left. You can get away with being a leftist for tax hikes, no you can't. No, you can, the governor of Colorado Jared polis and Democrat, he just got away with it. He's for a tax cut in Colorado. I'm not celebrating the guy's win. Don't get me wrong. I'm just saying you can get away with that. You can't get away with being a leftist and supporting life anymore. You can. If you don't support 24 hour termination of life in the womb, 360 five, 7 days a week, you are not a leftist. They will not let you in. And there's an effect to that. You get these celebrities doing TikTok videos, kids can't get off TikTok, they're watching 20 hours out of 24 hours a day, a TikTok video is telling them how great it is to kill babies in the womb. You know, I sense that, that when roe went down, that there was going to be a political penalty. But as I said to you often and I'll say now, now that it unquestionably had an effect, I believe it was 27% of voters and 5 abortion referendums. Went down in flames for us, the pro life side 5. One of them, in Montana, so it's not up to us today to go, oh, abortion didn't matter. Because abortion did matter. It's up to us to say, we represent life, we will always represent life if we don't represent white a life, then it means nothing, then this party is totally worthless, and we are going to fight for life. We're going to fight for life no matter what. But there's no question we haven't done good politics on it. We just haven't. We have convinced somehow the entertainment community and the Hollywood community and the sports community that killing babies is some Rite of passage or something. We can lose kids like this. We lost the 18 to 24 year old vote by more than 20 points. How is that? This is the sexy party, bro this is it, I'm not kidding. We say, hey, spend your own money, leave me alone. Let my kids go to a good school they choose. Let me fix my own healthcare question authority and stay the hell out of my life like that was kind of like the hippie message I thought. Rage Against the Machine, bro we are the ones raging against machine. You're the new misfits. You're the new renegades. They are the machine now, the left. How did that become cool? I had a bumper sticker on my car growing up. A white Ford escort had said question authority. I meant it. The bumper sticker didn't say kiss authorities ass. That's the new left. How did that become a sexy party for these kids? 18 to 24. Yeah, I want more of that. The 18 to 24 year old. How did that happen? I sensed it. Go back and listen if you doubt the bona fides on what I'm telling you. I sensed it yesterday. Listen to the show. Listen to the podcast. You can sense a little bit of the anxiety in my voice over tribalism. People are voting for the Democrat, ladies and gentlemen, it doesn't matter if the guys are damn serial killer. Oh, same thing's happening on the Republican side, not to the degree it is with them. Just look at the Lenin project. You had a whole crew of grifters making entire career who were Republican activists in the past, turn on Trump as he was doing a bunch of conservative stuff. No, don't tell me Republicans just vote for the R, you got Adam kinzinger and Liz Cheney out there. Two life losers making an entire career at saying screw Trump.

"Regulatory positivity side, residents of Colorado can now pay their state taxes with crypto. To do so they have to use PayPal crypto tools and they have an additional fee, but at least it's a sign of legitimacy. Colorado is led by governor Jared polis, who is one of the most forward looking U.S. politicians when it comes to crypto and tech in general. Finally, on the weirdness front, the Treasury Department has published a request for comment asking the public to weigh in on how crypto might be used in a legal activities and how it should respond. The weirdness for me doesn't stem from whether treasury should be dealing with these issues one 100% they should. It's more about the strangeness of this being what they ask the public to comment on. Take this question. How can the U.S. Department of the Treasury and concert with other government agencies improve guidance and public private communication on anti money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism and sanctions obligations with regard to digital assets? The question is how much does the public have to say about that? Now, of course, public comment quote unquote still could mean that it's really for a very small number of enfranchised organizations to comment. And what's more in general, I'm for the government asking for more, not less of people's opinions. It's just strange that this particular issue is one where there is a request for comment when there's so many other issues that the public might have an even stronger opinion on. Now, let's look at some pre and post narrative institutionalization. And first I'll define my terms. Institutionalization during the last run was very much narrative. And what I mean by that is that the bull run really got started with the idea of institutions finally actually coming to the space. Specifically with the idea of Bitcoin as an inflation hedge. There was Paul Tudor Jones great monetary inflation thesis, and of course Michael saylor's Bitcoin buy, which led to Tesla's Bitcoin buy, et cetera, et cetera. What I mean by post narrative institutionalization is the slow deliberate but clear process that has been happening this entire bear market

We have the best country in the world. Well, and we just always need to remember the Patriots that gave the ultimate sacrifice or were willing to give the ultimate sacrifice. Not only to secure our liberty, but also to defend it for the last almost 250 years. It's really a celebration of just what makes America great, I think. Oh, I agree with you completely and looking at it. But I want to turn my attention, of course, we've had a, I think, and I said it in the first segment today. The left is calling a judicial activism. We're simply calling it back to reality and interpreting interpreting the law in a constitutional. I mean, what we're seeing out there right now is that it reminds me of the scene from The Wizard of Oz, the liberals. I don't think it's amazing because actual real law. But I want you to respond to this. I mean, what bothers me about this though is the president has been overseas. He's been to G 7. Whatever, but he's been there. But then when he had the opportunity when he starts talking about it, he actually degrades our court on a world stage. I want you to listen to this and I want to get your comments on this.

Colorado Gubernatorial Candidate Heidi Ganahl on Hispanic Voters
"Believe there is a political realignment happening where Hispanics are starting to come in the Republican direction and record numbers. Now, Colorado, I believe, is 18, 19% Hispanic, which is more than what people would guess so if you just think of Colorado, talk about how Hispanics are starting to defect from the Democrat party, and I believe that's making polis rather nervous, that kind of reliable Hispanic base is all of a sudden probably being put into question, isn't it? It is. It is. The Hispanic voters in Colorado care a lot about family values and faith and community and education is really important to them that their kids get a good education. 5%, only 5% of Hispanic kids endeavor public schools can read a grade level right now. That report just came out a few weeks ago. Parents are really ticked off. We also have one of the highest inflation rates in the country right here, even compared to the national average, people can't afford to live in our state anymore. And Jared pullis thought it was a good idea to bring the new green deal to Colorado. And he's decimated our oil and gas industry here. And we produce some of the cleanest energy on the planet, but he'd rather us be not energy independent and go to Iran, Russia, and Venezuela to buy gas and oil, which is ridiculous. And it's also unpopular from that mistake and every time tracking bands get to the people of Colorado, they vote them down, don't they? They do. They do. And they actually voted it down and then Jared polis and the legislature, a couple of years later, put it through, regardless that the people. They do that all the time. And now we have one of the most obnoxious disgusting abortion laws in the country right here, abortion until birth. That is not how the people of Colorado are telling me they feel about that issue. So that's something we've got to go full on and turn back here.

So I want to talk to you about a couple things about your race, but first I want to try to nationalize this for our audience. You're mentioned in this article in The Wall Street Journal. Why Democrats are funding the GOP fringe about how some of your opponents are actually getting benefit from Democrat super PACS. This is something that is now happening in more and more primary races across the country where Democrats are inserting themselves into our primaries. Tell us about this and tell about how it applies to your race. Yeah, it's been crazy the last few weeks. We've found out that the Democrats are putting about $3 million into our race for governor, our primary race. So they're trying to pick their opponents. And they certainly don't want to run against me. That's very evident as the polling looks great for me going up against one of the wealthiest guys in Colorado who's destroying our state here. And I am a fighter, as you said, I am ready to take it to the map Jared polis and win back our beautiful state, but he wants to keep me from even getting through the primary by dumping millions of dollars into the Democrat governors association and another organization progress now that he helped found a few years ago.

The Fear of School Lockdowns Is Bipartisan
"I am of the opinion that Ron DeSantis is setting a model for governors everywhere. The president can't do anything about school unions. Because it's a governor's authority. But there are emergency powers vested in almost every state governor. They can I think they can fire the teachers if they don't go to work. I think governor can do that. I think desantis will. What do you think about schools being closed at this two years into the pandemic when we fully are aware of the consequences of school closure? Well, look, I don't think there's any political well, I should say this. I think there's very little political will for it on both sides of the aisle. One of the things that I find encouraging, but also very interesting is that some of the sharpest pushback to move lockdowns and school closures has been coming from democratic governors and democratic officials. Some of them are not going to be as appointed or aggressive in their language about it because the teachers unions are allies and the Democratic Party and important allies from a political perspective. But I can just tell and looking at Colorado governor Jared polis, the new mayor of New York, Eric Adams. Even from The White House, there's just very little appetite for this sort of thing. As there should be at this point, given all we know about the virus given the vaccines in the Therapeutics we have and given how we know this impacts kids.

Still got two hours left to date with, you know, Fortunately so My colleague Dan capitalist has been spending some time in recent days. Bringing you highlights slash low lights, I suppose, from a very, very in depth report by a reporter named Ben Markus, who works here in Colorado for CPR news and Bend in an exhaustive piece of investigative journalism about The Colorado government react to state governments reaction. In the early days of Covid. And I know Dan's been talking about this a lot. But I want to talk about at least a little bit, and I'm sure Dan will give you more. It's rather a damning picture. It's fairly damning for Jared Polis. It's really bad for that part of our state government Public Health department. That is supposed to Have helped us through all this Now, Ben Marcus is report takes tens of pages. So I read it two or three times and went through and just kind of highlighted for myself some of the stuff that I wanted. To cover with you. So what I'm going to do with you right now is not an exhaustive recitation of Ben's reporting. If you just look up Ben Marcus M. A. R K. U. S. And then Maybe just Ben Markus Covid. You will certainly find this this piece. It's entitled how Colorado caught Covid. And it's really something it's worth reading. I'm going to just share some of it with you. Let me quote some stuff here. So we're talking now about the beginning. Of Covid, so this would have been the end of 2019. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Colorado had the worst rate. Of death per occupied nursing home bed in the United States. It was twice the rate of death as the national average according to federal data. Now, keep in mind that we all know about the complete disaster. In New York state. Where Governor Andrew Cuomo. Ordered. That people infected with Covid, who lived in nursing homes and went to hospitals get sent back to the nursing homes. And we know the disaster that caused in the unnecessary, uh, suffering an illness and death. That that cost which has forever Stand. Andrew Cuomo's reputation such as it was So let me just read the sentence to you again. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Colorado had the worst rate of death per occupied nursing home bed in the U. S. Wow. Those deaths were driven again. I'm quoting from Ben Markus, Those Deaths were driven by an inability to keep the virus out of nursing homes after the state's system for testing in contact tracing in the homes collapsed. It is a different problem than New York. What a what A nightmare. Governor Jared Polis and the leader of the state's Health department never revealed to the public that the state's lab was overwhelmed her that the state's nursing homes had become, however, briefly the deadliest in the nation. First of all, Let me just interject for a moment. What tremendous work by Ben Markus to do all this digging into figure all this out. And what shoddy work by the rest of the quote unquote journalists in the state of Colorado to not come up with this. In the more than a year and a half since the time that Ben is talking about I continue they they being the governor and the head of the Public Health department maintained that any shortcomings in the state's performance against the virus resulted from personal choices made by Colorado's Now let me say. Throughout most of this governor, police said, And I appreciated that he said it and that he at least early on tried to govern. This way. It seemed that he wanted less government overreach and heavy handed, drop down regulation and more personal responsibility and I get that and I agree with it, and I think it's right. But the problem comes Where you've got people who have very, very little choice in how their lives are lived, because they're living in nursing homes, and they have no control. Over who comes into that building at least as far as the workers. And so the idea of Personal choice. Personal responsibility. While it's correct for most of Colorado, for most of society really isn't correct and never was and obviously never was. For the people who were most wrong vulnerable to Covid, which is the elderly in nursing homes. And in October 6th press conference, he said. We've worked very hard to put the policy right policies in place. It's up to people's behavior. To maintain this progress in coming weeks and months. We've surged are testing capacity. We've also implemented a world class contact tracing ability. Wow. Okay. Within weeks, deficiencies in Colorado's response were exposed by the third wave of the disease. So I guess actually, I think I named the year run. We're talking about. 20 talked late. 2020 not late. 2019 late, 2020. We're talking about the third wave, and we've already put all this stuff in place in theory. Within weeks. Deficiencies in Colorado's response were exposed by the third wave of the disease caused by the coronavirus. The systems poll is called world class left nursing home residents and what were perhaps the deadliest conditions in the nation. Oh, my gosh. Remember Ben Marcus is not some conservative policy eating guy. He works for. He works for Colorado public radio. Right. That's a that's a liberal outlet, Ben. I don't think as a political axe to grind to the extent that he has a political bias. He's probably a little bit left leaning. He's not out there just gunning for Pulis. So it makes it all the more remarkable to hear this stuff from someone like him. But this is what journalists are supposed to do. This is what reporters are supposed to do right the truth without fear or favor. The history of Colorado's response, he says to the global pandemic is not a story of widespread malfeasance or corruption. It is instead a story of a lack of planning and preparation, forcing difficult choices that went wrong. Even as vaccines have allowed millions to move beyond the pandemic. Nursing home infections and deaths are back on the rise. Again in Colorado. Now again, this article Is very in depth. One of the most exhaustive bits of investigative journalism you're going to read and I am not going to share anything close to all of it with you..

Press Play with Madeleine Brand
Midterm election results begin to pour in
"Were so angry about Merrick garland, President Obama's supreme court nominee who never got a vote in the Senate. He never got a vote because Republicans had control and majority leader Mitch McConnell had the decision of we will hold a vote on him. We won't hold vote on him. He decided not to hold a vote. It didn't happen. So with Republicans maintaining control of the Senate that means McConnell will be able to hold votes on a whole lot of judicial nominees for President Trump. They can continue putting conservative judges on the court. And if the Democrats do take back control of the house and pass a permanent fix for for Dhaka. Recipients are or many of other things that that Democrats want to do that means that the Republican Senate can just not vote on it or vote for something else. And here's one more thing if Democrats want to push impeachment the idea that a Republican controlled Senate would vote to convict a president who's been impeached by the house is somewhere around zero percent. And how close are Democrats to their goal of retaking the house we've been saying Twenty-three seats need needed to take control of the house. How far along are they at this hour of the night about halfway there? They've picked up about a dozen seats at this point in time. And that puts them in pretty good track considering some any of the key races. Democrats thought would be that first wave seats. They pick off are out in California. Where polls haven't closed yet. How are they doing in the governor's races? They're doing pretty well as well. They have picked up gubernatorial seats in Illinois. And I believe Michigan as well. Democrats have picked up seats there. They've also defended seats in Colorado. Jared polis won the open governor seat. There Ohio had been a race. They'd been getting a lot of tension. Richard cordray had been re leading a lot of poll. He's the democrat running for governor on. Hi, oh, he's actually trailing the Republican Mike dewine right now by about seven points, which is notable since Sherrod Brown. One a really easy reelection in the Senate race. No a couple of the most prominent governors races. We've been watching in Georgia and Florida still too close to call that is right Florida is basically fifty fifty Republican Rhonda Santa's has a fifty to forty nine percent lead over democrat, Andrew gillum and in Georgia. Let me just scroll to that on my screen. I think I would remember if we'd call that race. Yeah. But with sixty seven percent reporting Brian Kemp, the Republican is leading Stacey Abrams. The democrat fifty four to forty five percent that would be notable. Because nearly every poll had that race neck and neck. Well, we're going to hear more about Georgia actually in right now. Bill of Georgia public broadcasting is with us, and he can tell us. More about that Bill. I'm Michelle good to talk to you. So how's it looking there? Well, I think you've got to be careful about the margin that you're hearing right now in the Georgia governor's race because the big metro Atlanta counties, which are predominantly, of course, democratic are still those precincts are out in big numbers. Dekalb county one of the state's biggest and most powerful democratic counties. Very few of the votes. Counted their Fulton County Clayton county counties in the immediate metro area. And what what you have to have had had seen was kept building up. The kind of Lee showing right now across rural Georgia to withstand the. Influx of democratic votes. So I think it's really fair to say that race right now really is way too close to call. And just remind us if you would have why it is that people are so interested in this race. I'm gonna take my colleague more licenses instruction here, and and not call it a waiver. But, but you cannot ignore the fact that there's been tremendous excitement about this race from all across the country excitement and anxiety, and and actually some anger and tell us why remind us of why I think there are several reasons number one, of course, Stacey Abrams if she wins would become the first African American female governor in the United States. She's also running as a progressive democrat Democrats run as real Democrats in Georgia. They run to the right. And in the last decade, plush it hasn't gotten anywhere. Jason Carter tried to do that. When he ran for governor in two thousand fourteen Jimmy Carter's grandson, he didn't get very far. So Stacey Abrams is come in and said, no, no, no, I am basically a liberal Democrat. And I'll run his one Brian camp runs as a very conservative Republicans. So you've set up a dynamic here that we have not seen in Georgia for a very very long time. And I. Has made for a really exciting race. I'm sorry. You didn't mention Oprah. Could we mentioned? I just think we should mention Oprah.
