"And you know who believes the president of the United States has to be careful with his words, Joe Biden, because he campaigned on that very issue regularly throughout 2019 and 2020 when he was running for president. You all know the words of a president matters. They can move markets, they can send our brave women and men to war, they can bring peace, they can calm a nation in turmoil. Biden also gave the Russians an instant opportunity here, of course, for propaganda, because now they can simply say, hey, all this is about is that the United States wants to displace Vladimir Putin. In fact, the Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry peskov responded to Biden's comment saying this is not up to Biden. This is up to the Russian people. And of course he handed his political opponents here at home, an easy opportunity to take a whack at him. Here was Republican Jim risch, senator from Idaho on CNN yesterday. This administration has done everything they can to stop escalating. There's not a whole lot more you can do to escalate than to call for regime change and whoever wrote it did a good job, hit the hit the right notes and then to have that at the end of the sour note at the end was unfortunate to say the least. And the backdrop in which all of this is happening is that it's probably the worst time for the president to have created his own headache like this. According to a brand new NBC News poll just out yesterday, 70% of Americans in that poll said they had just some were very little confidence in Joe Biden's ability to deal with Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The poll was conducted before last week's trip that Biden took to Europe 8 in ten Americans in the polar worried that the war is going to increase gas prices and possibly involve nuclear weapons. And the poll found Biden at his overall lowest approval rating in the history of his presidency in that poll, standing at 40% approval. So this is not the time where Joe Biden can be making mistakes like this that both have potential repercussions around the world where clearly our allies are concerned, and then of course there's just the need for the president to be as disciplined as possible, which his political opponents will be making hay of here, all at precisely a moment that Joe Biden needs to be playing error free ball. That's it for today's political briefing..

"Welcome back. This is the Ben Shapiro show. Joining us on the line is Senator Jim risch. He's the chairman of the committee on foreign relations. He's also a member of the select committee on intelligence, he's been the junior United States Senator from Idaho since two thousand and nine Senator risch, thanks so much for joining the Ben Shapiro show. They Ben so glad to be with you. There are lots and lots of people listening to you. And I Aho on TB, y and k ide- KOA I- exit a whole bunch of other stations out. Well, terrific blow to all of them famous. I appreciate it's not like your state, but Senator rich. Let's start by asking. There's been a lot of hubbub this week over the report that the select committee on intelligence report on the twentieth. Sixteen election, we'll find that. There was no actual collusion between President Trump and the Russian government. I was wondering if you could get could give us sort of a broad update on what the Senate committee on intelligence is found. Yeah. Oban first of all let the record reflect. I didn't say that. What I did was I. Yeah. I actually quoted the chairman of the committee who said, I don't I don't feel comfortable in saying it. But he said it, and listen this guy knows what he's talking about. I'm number two on that committee. He's the chairman, and he is he is truly given his life. The last two years to this investigation. We've we've examined hundreds of thousands of documents interviewed hundreds of witnesses, and there is nothing but a great big fat boost up on the board. And it was good for him to actually lay that out there. And that's where they'll be a report that says that this is my third investigation on the Intel committee. I when I first got there we were in the middle of the the torture investigation. And then Dow's investigation of my third one undoubtedly there will be a minority report majority report. And I think the the dams already telling you what what there's going to say there's going to say, it's all. Donald Trump smoke as is everything today. What's been the Senator Jim risch of Idaho? Senator obviously, you're not privy to the internal workings of the Muller investigation. But given that you've seen such an enormous amounts of information. Do you expect that the mullahs report number one will ever see the light of day or number two? That that that will reflect more of the perspective of the majority report on the committee on intelligence, or do you think it'll more reflects the minority report if you had to hazard, a guess. You know as far as the last part of that. I I really am not comfortable has guests. I just I don't know where they're gonna go. But this the I used to be prosecuting attorney. I know what evidence looks like I know an objective revenue since like, I know what evidence looks likes to get you to a conclusion or conviction, and it's not there. So I I don't know what what how they're gonna treat that. I mean, if you want to try to talk about the circumstantial evidence of single this happened this happened that happened and therefore reach a conclusion, that's what are going to do. I'm I'm convinced, and they really wanted to be that way. And as a result, whenever you have somebody that really wanted wants it to be that way. You don't wind up with a a legitimate conclusion. There's been a Senator Jim risch of Idaho. Senator you're also the chairman of the committee on foreign relations. Obviously, we're all watching what's going on in Venezuela. What do you think is sort of the the outcome? If you had. Predict what's going to happen in Venezuela. What would that look like what do you think American policy should look like in Venezuela? I know there's some 'isolation issue think that the United States should should sort of out. And I think the vast majority of folks thinks the United States has role in helping to oust nNcholas Maduro, the evil socialist dictator of the country where do you come down in that debate? And what do you think the future Venezuela looks like I think you probably laid it out pretty well. We have been enormously impressed with the new administration air the people of Venezuela. They remove their president pursuant to section two thirty three times the tuition, and they have a way to do it just as the United States as a way to remove is president. They use the rule of law. They did not use the military. Did you not use force? But they use the rule of walks and any time we're dealing with a nation that POWs the rule of law. It is a much more comfortable and enjoyable experience in dealing with a nation that depends upon people to decide rulers dictators, or what have you decide where things out? I look we met that we had a meeting with the the new master here in Washington DC who represents the people have been this way. And the the new president president one. And we're very impressed with the with their view of things how they should go. The former president and he is the former president even though he calls himself. The president Madero is camping on the there's there's I think that the situation is quickly reaching critical mass. He's hanging are only because he's got a handful of generals did a propping him up. I think all of them are probably looking for next right now. Wasn't a door number two to get through. And we're we're we're standing behind. We we've moved in a watch not just we the international community. But as always led by the United States has amassed a tremendous amount of a humanitarian aid on the border in Columbia. And there's there's some test coming up because. President dole has directed to security forces to start moving that into the country in about ten days and tries to stop fan. I think I think there's going to be a real problem. I wouldn't be surprised before the ten days are up that that material was gone. If you look at what's happening there on a day-to-day basis, the demonstrations against people in the streets demonstrating peacefully are just growing by leaps and bounds. Huge huge thousands of people that are rallying in favor of the of the new legitimate president and against the former president, and we just don't think it can sustain, you know, you're always hopefully, you never know how it's going to come out. But haven't been around a number of these things, I can tell you that we are cautiously optimistic this this is going to end well in Senator risch I have to say, I I am appalled. By a certain number of Democrats who have come out in favor of Madero remaining. This includes Representative Ilhan, Omar, I don't know if you were privy to tape from earlier today in which Representative Omar quizzed Elliot Abrams, who is the these envoy to his Walea. And basically suggested that he is a human rights. Abuser refused to allow them to answer questions suggested that he was in favour of massacres that happened in El Salvador in the early eighties talked right over him. She of course, has been a fan of essentially, leaving the Madero regime in place. What do you make of the new wave of Democrats, many of whom including some of the most prominent members seemed to be supportive of an actual tyrannical, socialist evil regime. Well, you know, if you look at for the Douro administration and former administration now former administration, but when it wasn't administration the people the group supporting them Russia, China, North Korea. Iran in the proxy careful have all come out in favor of the regime. So that that's who you want to associate with. You know, you're you're known by the people you do associate with and that that's what's happening there. I mean, I look I I'm you know, I've been around a lot longer than than you have. And I never thought I'd live to see the date socialist elected to in America to the National Congress, and then espouse socialism, and the kinds of things they're talking about in the new green deal where we're gonna pay people who can't work, which I understand the also wanna people who won't work, which I don't know. Just it's it's disgusting. Senator risch I wanna get your take on that. Actually, Senator McConnell. I thought did did a very clever and hilarious thing by bringing up the green new deal for a vote. I thought it was I couldn't help but chuckle at the fact that Ed Markey. Who was one of the original sponsors of that Bill, then objected to McConnell bring up to the floor for a vote. What do you make of the of the new round of democratic senators who are all enthusiastic about the green new deal until it comes time for the actual proposals contained therein? Well, it's it's been interesting to watch them say, oh, I'm for the new green deal. And then when you drill down into it. They they tried to distance themselves from it. They've all got excuses about how well it's just a starting point, you know, to spur discussions centered Jedis, but look America down make choice. We're we're divide too closely divided as to what we wanna leave beat Lou, do we wanna be disguised socialist society. Like, most European countries are were you have nanny state the peace to your birthday to your death. And and everything in between. Or are we going to be easy capitalist society that that the founding fathers Davis? We've we have created on the face of this earth, the richest countries that has ever existed one with the best standard of living ever existed. One word for a person who has lived under a bridge and has no assets will get the best medical care in the world. If they happen to keel over on the street from an appendicitis. Look, this is this is to be celebrated. But instead all we hear is criticism of it and people need to stand up and say, look we capitalist. We are not socialist my favorite line. And the president's state of the union was America will never be a socialist country standing ovation with a long line of applause, which I which I was planning to see. And and look we we need to we need to figure out who we are. We want to be in this culture, that's growing up here that that doesn't want to work, and is somehow wants to just be a socialist country. We need to stand up against that. We really do that Senator risch fennel question for you here at sending you gotta run the government shutdown, obviously still on the table. The president is rumored to be looking at signing. This this new budget Bill that would provide one point three seven five billion dollars in border security, including presumably some funding for the border wall about fifty five miles of border wall. Do you think that that's the right now? Outcome for the president to sign this Bill, and do you think that the president will move on after that to signing into law, or at least moving toward an executive order to build more while using for example, anti-drug authority under under particular under particularly you ten USC twenty four. Yeah. You know, I'm I'm I'm opposed to government shutdown. My the national journal here. Classifies news de most conservative member of the US Senate. Sometimes most of the time other times close to it. We conservatives like things to run smoothly. I want a smaller one that spends a lot less taxes. A lot less regulates lot west. But having said that we also have to cover it. We were elected to cover, and I'm I'm absolutely opposed to two government shutdowns we need to keep the government running. But we need to work continuing to car way to have a less intrusive government. And then what we have. I think the president's going to bring to sign it. I hope he does. And we move on to other things the the border wall. I know you've probably talked about it a lot. There's two thousand miles of border the last four presidents built six hundred and fifty four miles. But because they hate Donald Trump so badly in this town, they they just pews to give him anything at all on that. Somehow, they they Beijing that has become immoral when two Republican to Democrat President Bill six hundred fifty four miles and with. Funding was provided by five partisans for both Democrats, but because Donald Trump's there they don't want to give him any. He's going to get them out of it to do it. And I think he's gonna find some other ways that are absolutely waffle that. I encourage him. Tissues to continue building the wall, eventually finish the Law Center, rich, thanks so much for joining the program, and thanks for what you're doing out there in the US, and I know it's always an uphill battle. But really appreciate what you're doing. Thank you for joining the program. All right. Thanks for being on your show coming up in just a second. I'm gonna play you some audio of Ilhan Omar who had a bit of an awkward exchange with the CNN reporter in just a second. We're going.
