Neil Gorsuch, you look at Justice Cavanaugh thes air great justices. White House Press secretary Kayleigh Mcenany. With the presidential election just weeks away, Democrats are opposed to seating a new justice. I don't want to get involved in this debate. Until at least, uh, justice against burning her family had time to mourn and celebrate and reflect Senator Joe Mansion of West Virginia. Fox News has confirmed Senate Democrats will hold a conference call next hour to talk about howto handle the vacancy.

"So that would be 52 votes to confirm, of course. Lisa Murkowski, the Alaska senator. Included in that group of 52, though she has voted no on all of the procedural moves moving forward. She made the argument that she was opposed to moving ahead with a confirmation so close to the presidential election. But once she's lost that case when she lost that argument The confirmation vote presents her with a question of merit qualifications for Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. Murkowski says she has no doubt in barrettes ability to do the job and therefore she will support A final confirmation. We don't expect any Democrats to vote for Amy Cockney Barrett. That is a bit of a change from even some of the more controversial picks that we've seen over the last couple of Selection's John Democrats. At least a handful did vote for both Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Yeah, In fact, Neil Gorsuch managed to get three Democrats to vote for his confirmation on Obviously fewer. I think it was just one Democrat. It was Joe Mansion from West Virginia that voting from Brett Kavanaugh ls confirmation that will not be the case this evening. It's going to be as you just pointed out. 52 yeses and 48 nose on Judge Amy Cockney Barrettes nomination, but that's obviously More than enough. It's a majority to make her the night justice on the U. S. Supreme Court. And you know, we've talked about obviously the Democratsopposition Tio this process, John doing this so close to the presidential election, of course, eight days away from Election Day. But they have also raised concerns about cases that could reach justice Bharat very quickly. The one you hear so much about Jon is California v. Texas, which will be argued two weeks from tomorrow, a week after Election Day, the latest challenge to the affordable Care Act. What do we know about that case as it relates to this confirmation process? And how a judge Justice Barritt could handle that question. Well, she did not give any hint as to how she would rule on that particular case. It's not Ah, an up or down vote on the affordable care act itself. It's rather whether the also known as Obama care can survive as a law if you take away the individual mandate, which has already been done. By Republicans in Congress. And so that is the issue of the issue of several Bility before the justices in this particular case, California v Texas and in the lower level courts the administration has lost. This is an appeal to the Supreme Court and with judge now justice once this vote takes place. Amy Cockney barrel, taking her place on the Supreme Court that will give conservatives a 6 to 3 majority on paper anyway. We don't know how various justices will ultimately rule on this particular case. Yeah. And obviously there are questions about what role if any. The Supreme Court may have to play in the upcoming election, John we've seen obviously, if you Ah, you know, we're following the news in 2000. You saw how the Supreme Court had to put a stop eventually to the recount in Florida, ultimately delivering those electoral votes to Ah, President George W. Bush. We're seeing in just what I think. A few moments ago, the Supreme Court issued a ruling is it relates to how long States have to accept ballots, so it's not gets out of the realm of possibility..
Why this candidate for West Virginia governor isn't even the focal point of his own campaign
"Stephen Smith was already running an unconventional campaign for governor of West Virginia. It's opponent fide of the people effort under the banner. West Virginia can't wait the campaign. Its Policy Proposals and budget have been discussed and written by the people. In fact. Smith isn't even the focal point of his own race for governor. Even Corona virus has an upended the campaign Smith says the pandemic has only enhanced their message. But will it work? If Smith who has to win the Democratic nomination in June defeats the incumbent Republican in November Smith. Thinks so hear him explain. Why Right now Stephen Smith thank you very much for coming on the podcast? Thank you so to be here so I've been watching your campaign now for a while since October when we met through our mutual friend justice guests and he wanted me to meet you because he was saying this. Guy Steven he is running a different kind of campaign. And you laid it out to me at that dinner. Talk about the kind of campaign. You're running so our campaign starts with a simple light. Yeah we actually don't think that one governor is the problems we actually believed that never in America district Sunni Non West. Virginia history has a politician in the answer politician League wars years ago or the teachers strike two years ago that we exchanged from the bottom up. So that's how we built our campaign starting Almost three years ago we having conversations with folks all across the state saying what would it look like? What would it take to run a campaign where the ended it just win one office but we won something closer to a people's Government in West Virginia? And that's what we're doing now a a people's government talk more about how this campaign is working because it it's not just hey on Seba Smith running for Governor and you've got volunteers around the state who are running around and getting people to vote for you. It's a little bit more involved in that right. They were to show people that were doing something different. We have to do it with our actions. Not just our word so the first thing I did was build county volunteer teams in all five counts tourist state so in every county. There's a West Virginia can't wait. Volunteer team is not Jefferson County for Stephen Smith Jefferson. County can't wait then. We realized that some people are gonNA come into politics based not from where they live but from their identity as a coal miner or color Muslim are students or social worker so we will thirty nine constituencies teams veterans can't waste seniors can't rate so last piece of the puzzle was New Year more than why can't and five fifteen or twenty people to run the same kind of kept a race that you're so look for people would say no pack money promised Across the picket line promises Behind from a debate never hunch down and again we thought fifteen twenty twenty five people that would be a revolution West Virginia here. We are eighteen months later. There are ninety four of us running together up down and importantly we're running all different kinds of offices and council to Congress and Senate and everything in between we also represent the people of West Virginia in a way that is far different adverse truer than the current I'm ninety four. Candidates are disproportionately black. Disproportionately women disproportionately veterans disproportionately educators. Came directly from the Teachers Strike Movement. Were disproportionately waiting members. The LG Clusky unity and together. We represent something more like what are states. And that's what wrath of these people I mean. You're you're running in. The Democratic Party are all the people who are running in all of these positions. The all these elected hopefully elected physicians. Are they also all democrats from the beginning of this campaign? We've announced strategic read but also morally. We had a duty to build the people's government not just based on the people only go Democrat. Which is a fairly small group of people in West Virginia? We defeat curious about inviting independence. I needed people who voted for the president. Met doesn't mean compromise our values on the contrary. What it means is looking. For the biggest boldest issues that could get and that's what we found in this campaign that on issue after issue there was a democratic position that you could find the state capital a Republicans Find the State Capitol and then it was a bit consensus. Common Sense. Position wasn't being argued by corporate arms of the Democratic or Party. And that's where we find our strength and that's why we broken Joe Mansions Record for the most. Donations ever in governor's race in West Virginia history because you're appealing to literally accountable to a wide range of people from all different parts of the state walks threatening.
Dershowitz says his Trump impeachment defense distorted
"Alan Dershowitz told the Senate even if the quid pro quo with Ukraine was proving eats not grounds for impeachment saying most public officials believe their election is in the public interest Jennifer president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest that cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment it was a sharp twist from the president's own claim of perfect dealings with Ukraine and shot the Democrats like Joe mansion I couldn't believe it was is preposterous the argument left even trump allies backing away from Dershowitz two days as the argument was mis characterized that he did not argue a president can do anything if he believes a re election is the in the national interest saga remained on the at the White House

"In is it winder Georgia great to have you hi yes rush thank you and it's up to pleasure to talk to a great American in the patriot well thank you Sir very much yes rush I think there's something has been lost in all this talk about the the Democrats wanting to trump and if it does go to the cinema and they are wanting to pick off one or two demo of Republicans in the Senate by Kermit Romney everybody's forgetting about what I call the news that deer in the headlights senator of the senator from West Virginia the Democrats Joe mansion yeah yes last year with you most people's teeth about the cabin all booked and I cannot see Mr mansion Bodine against Donald Trump from beach because he will be committing suicide in the west region us collect I can see trump going there in campaign against him in three years was time for him to be revoked voted back in the office all right so you you're saying that even if the Democrats they're able to golf a couple Republicans they're going to have at least one or maybe more democratic defections on any final vote to acquit yeah I believe that the Democrats might get that Republican but to be like taking a water pistol to a gun fight it means nothing because of the pie I don't know it all well look of course that that in and of itself just within that universe is accurate but I don't I don't see it ever get in there I don't care how it happens it's an acquittal whether the acquittal has some Republicans voted for trump a couple of Democrats that didn't the news is that after four years of Russia collusion it didn't happen for years and trying to buy a stormy Daniels within four years a cabin on taxes in four years and if trump is a Quentin it isn't going to matter who vote in the house and the Democrats are never going to let it get that far the only way they're going to let it get that far is if they have way advance knows that Romney is able to grab twenty Republicans involved with him there is no way they're going to do this and have it end up as an acquittal that defeats the whole purpose if it ever gets that far this is Friday I opined yesterday with the why is wisdom I possess that what this actually is is the twenty twenty campaign issue and they simply want there to be articles of impeachment maybe an official vote trump to be impeached and they want that be be the new is that just that he has been impeached because they think most people will medium will think that means he's guilty because there's no way they're going to let this play out to an acquittal and McConnell has warned them that that's what's going to happen if this ends up in the Senate now there is this contradictions to this theory and one of them we mention today and we've had Eleanor Holmes Norton and a couple of others make the point one of the me that they want to hurry this along they want to get this done they want to get two articles of impeachment they want them written by one voted on by the house and then they can take their time preparing the case from the house managers to ultimately March over to the Senate and make the trial but they want to get this done soon because they fear what bar may end up producing they want to be able to say when bar surfaces the results of his investigation they want to say that's not they want their impeachment to happen first so that they can save that just a cheap but tempt them trying to diminish our impeachment movement that's just that's nothing to that that's I think that's what they're in a race against and they're in a race against public opinion I just I I mentioned earlier folks the people are not talking about this we are but when the show's over did you have your your life is laid out from you what you do other things this is not our coupon what we would what we would call the minds of the body politic what I'm gonna tell you what I was around when Clinton was impeached and it was different then that's all anybody was talking up because there hadn't been one in anybody's lifetime and there was revealed criminal activity had taken place there Clinton had so boring to perjury and had committed perjury in a federal grand jury deposition and everybody knew that he had to have the affair with the intern because the blue dress in the standard surfaced in the cigar and so everybody knew and but even during that process member frustrations snugly Clinton's approval numbers were in the sixties through out the whole thing and they climbed but the point is everybody was talking about it all right now it people just don't have the emotional reservoir to stay AT and they keep it full for this length of time ugh Graham some might numbered number ten here John Casey I'm trying to get the people see on and listen to him this is last night without with don lemon and the question is so so former governor Casey you you say we're not hearing from Republicans that there should be an investigation of a call with the Ukrainian president should we be hearing that I spent the weekend talking to a lot of people the reason why a lot of these congressmen and senators are saying anything is because they get heat from their constituents but they don't get heat from their constituents who are Republicans I don't find a lot of Republicans who are coming out and saying we used to have an investigation I hear I hear this it's a blip I hear well you know all politicians do their stuff I told the guy the other day in church I said listen to me when the present United States is asking a foreign leader to do something to dig up dirt on a political opponent this is a serious matter you know what he says they all do it so casing vacate K. everybody listen to this I can get a rethink it seriously first governor case thank you damn well know that that's not what trump was doing you're just right you're repeating the garbage that the whistle blower and chef are lying about no this is not a fine point there wasn't any read the transcript of the call it is so obvious what trump's doing here he's asking for help in in the in the bar investigation into what happened to him of the Russia saying but even that I don't care Casey tells this guy what do you think he'll president asking for in order to dig up there he did no such thing he didn't ask anybody to dig up dirt that's Adam Schiff flight here's Keisuke repeating it and even the sole case six church body I don't care they all do it they all do it and there are a lot of people think they all do it right away to.

"The cascades, the cascade happens. Yeah. He and of course, he can do is just let them a wine about him and then just sit out and do nothing. Because the more he talks more gase mix. And if he just hides all the others are desperate for tension. I just don't see them touching them really like unless the media. Please talk about touching about. All right. I'm gonna make a confession right here. I think I am probably the only person in this room, who has been on the receiving end of Joe Biden backup on do have very nice hair. So this was that twenty twenty thirteen I'm newly elected to the Senate, and the Democrats are making a big push for gun control, and they are going all in on gun control. And I'm a brand new freshmen trying to fight to defend the second amendment. We beat them back and defeated those efforts. But if you remember one of the provisions there was the mansion to me provisions that that was expand. Yeah. It was it was expanding background checks to, to remember this actual transactions between private individuals to it would've extended that, that if grandfather gives his grandson, a shotgun for Christmas that the grandfather has to go and run a background check. And so number of us oppose that we faded and I was on the Senate floor. And I went to Joe mansion, who is a really everyone likes Joe. He's a really nice guy. And I went over to Joe on the democratic side of the Florida, judge just wanted to say thank you for how you conducted this debate mansion didn't get personally didn't get nasty orbit for.

"And I think I do think that I've said this before and I've been wrong. But I do think that people are kind of getting a little fed up with it all so we will see all right. So last question for you before we let you go. There is a group of three people who you call the outsiders in your list, and that is Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Joe mansion the the Republican senators who sometimes lean a little to the left. I think Joe mansion leans in whatever to wreck shin. He thinks we'll get him favor. But I think that that Susan Collins Lisa Murkowski r really strong willed, they truly believe in a lot of the things they talk about sometimes, of course, they go off the edge in in the wrong direction. But who doesn't, but they, you know in with a world where we have a democratic house. But a Republican says. Senate these three folks have quite a lot of power in the Senate. Do you think that they're going to ever use it against their own party? Or do you think that it's always party before everything else even for them? Well, I think it depends on the issue. I mean, I don't necessarily think it's party before everything else in every single case. Like you saw with a bomb care. It's it it can be. I think these are people who really do listen to their constituents like Susan Collins had people applauding her in an airport. Lisa Murkowski was fielding calls. But their inboxes were full. You know, I think that it will depend on the situation, which I know is kind of a non answer. But. I don't it's it's trickier in the Senate. Because obviously, they do have a firm agility. And so there's not a whole lot of motivation to go against the party line because they're not going to be the ones who's next are on the line for it. You know, I mean, it it may make a difference. It may not but with McConnell, vice grip it more than likely won't. But I do think we'll have to wait and see what sort of issues come down the line. Obviously abortion access will be forseeable something that is decided in the supreme court. And you know, we'll see how that unfolds. But if that were to be an issue that come up in the Senate, I'm not sure where Murkowski in Collins, specifically would fall on that they've both said various things about access in relation to healthcare as well. So so I'm not sure I think they're mean. Role will be to kind of to kind of liaise and two I think that they're very much people who feel things out and we've seen that in the back and forth coverage before some sort of crucial vote that they kind of take forever to decide where they fall on something that can be infuriating. But it's also something that I understand as a chronically indecisive person that they want to they want to get a lot of input on things. So I I do think it depends on on what we see coming down the pipeline. Interesting interesting. All right. Well, it is going to be an interesting twenty nineteen and I'm really excited that we kicked this off with you. Thank you so much clever taking the time today, and I we should we should make a little twenty dollar bet of who we who we think is going to be the democratic nominee. If we get inside question, we could win so much more that twenty dollars. I'm gonna go with two people. Okay. I'm gonna go with Kamala Harris, and I'm gonna go with three people Kamala. Harris that's not Dato and Bloomberg in that particular order minute. Beta Kamala, Bloomberg doesn't remind you can do maybe by three. If he if you run, I don't think Biden. Is that your order though, is is that the same order or different? Sorry. Tommy, they order again the order. I think he's gonna I'm gonna go Bego Kamala, Bloomberg as my order of who will be the nominee. I think fatal. This is hard to beta Bloomberg Kyle going to say that. But we don't even know Bloomberg is running yet. They don't mind make about this. This is Vegas. Okay. All right. Great. I can be. Yeah. I I think beta Bloomberg Kamala. All right.

"I cannot take that line someone at the daily show wrote it, but I'm happy to see what time the meth lab of democracy. That's this Kristen cinema that is running out against Martha mcsally who is a war hero in Arizona. After the tape. We just played in the last hour. Where's she literally called the people of Arizona when she was giving a speech in Texas crazy now, we also have Project Veritas James O'Keefe will join us at the bottom of the hour. You went undercover at the Bredesen's headquarters and got all these people working for the democrat wanting to unseat or take the seat away from Marsha Blackburn. And they're all say, no, we're totally lying. He he's just saying that to get votes. We're trying to get Republicans to believe it'll be conservative. Bony gets in believe me. He'll be a Schumer democrat. Unbelievable, just such lying and deception which goes to my. Point. Is you Democrats can't run on who they really are. Because if they do they have to admit they're voting for Pelosi voting for Schumer. They're supporting Jerry, Nadler, they're going to support Maxine Waters that they're going to support impeachment endless investigation. Open borders. No more ice higher taxes. They want the crumbs back ObamaCare. The disaster that that is twenty five days to go. Joining us now, former speaker of the house author of the bestseller Trump's America the truth about our nation's great comeback. Now. I know we could survive if God forbid that we lost the house. I the problem is everything then gets fifty thousand times harder. And a lot of our progress. Get stalled that's what's at stake here. Stake? Here is exactly what was the stake. By the time. They were done with character assassination and smears on Cavanaugh. And that is if he had gone down if he had failed, the signal dodo center decent human beings to stay out of public life. Do not agree to serve to hide from the silt would have been horrifying. Says terrible as it was at least one of his over now sitting on the supreme court. So it man, I was just listening to you thinking because once again as you did with Obama way back in two thousand eight go with Hillary. I think you just you just cut through something really important. I think we should describe this year the masks came off. Yeah. I wanted to think it is. I think what's interesting. I don't know. I definitely feel momentum. The polls are showing momentum. We now have have we go through all the states is a very tight race Hellers up by two out in. Arizona MC Sally. Believe it or not is now up by six. This is before the release of these tapes, which I believe is definitely going to hurt in the case of of Kristen cinema. Marsha Blackburn is up by eight in Tennessee that is such an important race. Ted Cruz is rebounded in spite of all the hype of the beta will Rourke and all the money that thrown against Ted Cruz that is such an important seat. Claire mccaskill is down Heidi Heitkamp is down. Joe Donnelly is down. And I think tester is vulnerable in Montana. I think there's a lot of Senate races. That are really winnable in this atmosphere where we just watched the Senate all stand in line. But for Joe Manchin and follow Chuck Schumer's lead. Remember, if you have that happening in that many states, you're not gonna get a Blue Wave in the house. I mean, they're the same voters are the same people. And the tide is not there. But but there's something else while you're just really important. And again, I'm I'm thinking out loud with you. So because you you've triggered the reporting you're doing his treated this in my own thinking, I think our folks oughta start shifting towards humor. I think you could take now I've been here. I am. I'm throwing this hard punches. I can't I'm fighting this hard as I know how to fight. And then you Hannity just just put your foot off the gas and tell a joke. No, no, no, no. I want you to put your foot on the gas even more. But remember as Regan often proved sometimes humorous more devastating than anger. He's right now. So for example, when I really think marshes attitude and be it's okay. Well, I understand you're a liberal. We all understand you're gonna vote for Schumer. Don't don't be ashamed of it. It's all right. Who you really are. I again, I think I think this is John I learned this in part from from theater wage. Great coverage. Oh, John F Kennedy in in Queens, New York in nineteen sixty were Kennedy one of those risk but weekend before the election. Just just whipping the Republicans was all funny. It was all humorous. I mean, I think Mike Sally, for example, to take all of these crazy things that her opponent is said we've them together into an eight or ten minutes, we should be like a vaudeville act. That's okay. But could you imagine saying the meth capital of the of the of the world, and the people are crazy? I can't wait. I think the race should be over now. But on the first thing, we should say, why would you want to be the Senator for the meth capital world? You believe the stuff you said, why would you wanna represent people crazy what what's wrong with you? You know, I think I think we should we should accept. They really are who they are. I accept that. And also accept another thing that the there is no more moderation. You know, the history of relationships even tip O'Neill and Reagan those days are long long gone and the era of moderation or a scoop Jackson democrat or even Joe Lieberman. Got thrown out of the party, Mr Speaker that pretty much says it all that with one of the nicest human beings, ever, you cannot be a moderate democrat today in survive, and and be because you just get more and more and more isolated. I mean, I thought it was very telling that the votes on cavenaugh you had people. Who might have had a better chance getting reelected, but they couldn't break with their caucus only wanted to with their donors only one person and not give him credit. Joe Manchin, probably Joe mansion, you know, I'm sure he got the hell beat out of him by Chuck Schumer and company. They were desperate for him to not vote because they didn't want it to be bipartisan. And that's what his vote did. Well, I mean, I guess that means he's strong, and he's like you're not gonna ruin my career because you because of your radical leftist agenda, maybe even think about becoming a Republican if he wins, and that is the one seat that seems safer red state democrat, the only one point I think that's what I think. And it really even Asia if you watch even when he voted for Cavanaugh the numbers narrow the racist closer today than it was. A week ago. Because as I think what's happened is people looked up and suddenly realized what a team sport, this is that you got two teams. And there's a really simple question for every so-called'moderate. I'd say this. I also says to mention. Is he gonna vote for Schumer so fair question? Everybody needs to be asked that question. That's a democrat because we gonna vote for Schumer. Why would why would west Virginians send somebody to Washington to take power away from Mitch McConnell in the neighboring coal state McConnell east understands West Virginia? Humor as contempt for West Virginia has Hillary Clinton has contempt as just recently two weeks ago. You know, you had Nancy Pelosi saying things that were contemptible about what's the question. I'll be posed to to mansion is why are you even running? Vote for Schumer. Why run? You know, when you look at things that have been said, and I mean, just in recent times, I mean, the the idea of smelly WalMart voters or or we can't be civil or Joe Biden saying in September, the Trump voters of the drags us society or irredeemable, deplorables or bitter people clinging to their God guns, bibles and religion. I mean, it's pretty obvious where these people are you you haven't had a chance yet to see the Bredesen's office be the undercover video Project Veritas. I don't know if you saw it on my show last night, but it reveals a deep deep contempt. They've literally calling the people at Tennessee within the office of the Senate candidate from Tennessee. They're calling the people stupid and ignorant. Now, I would say it's over Marsha Blackburn will be the next Senator from the great state of Tennessee as well. Martha mcsally be the next Senator from the great state of Zona. I think very high that the wave is starting to build now. And ironically, it's going to be a red wave not a Blue Wave you really believe that. I'm not sure that there's enough psychoanalyst available to the New York Times and the Washington Post and CNN to deal with this. If this election, I comes out the way, I think it's gonna come out every single one of those channels is going to be in such trouble, psychologically, what about these Republicans in these important house seats to prevent Nancy Pelosi from becoming speaker. What do you say to those candidates as they now go into their final stretch twenty five days? I say simple, as you know, I wrote a paper on which you kind of to point out that Saddam is on on the two thousand eighteen election. Pretty straightforward. This election's about the future of America. One side wants to deliver results. And by the way with the release of pasture in Turkey today. President Trump has once again delivered for American delivered for religious liberty and human rights another victory for him. And for America the other side, basically just wants to resist, and then I take it to very. Specific issues. I think Kevin McCarthy's introduction of a Bill to control the southern border. That'll be voted on in December is really important. And I would say the other side, how can you tolerate MS thirteen in our neighborhoods. How can you tolerate sentinel and an opioid fifty four there were seventy four thousand drug overdose deaths last year more than people we lost an entire Vietnam war. How can you tell us? How can you tolerate sanctuary cities? John Cox on later. I never thought of a Republican would be within striking distance in California. Gavin Newsom now, not only a sanctuary state. We talk about it the other day. Now, he wants a free healthcare for everybody. You know, resident of California non-resident legal illegal doesn't matter. Go to California free healthcare for anyone. Well, I think you pointed admitted. Hey, I hadn't quite thought about it. He said it not only does not only is not willing to take care of everybody who's sick on the entire planet. But then also has a great signal for every governor in the state a little Medicaid slip. That says by the way, if you get sick here. Here's your your your one way airfare to California. They would love to take care of you for free. You might have solved forty nine states, Medicaid problem in terms of their budgets for just a little, you know, allowing them to send everybody to California mean newsome's plan is worthy of a former mayor of San Francisco. It is literally crazy. All right. Yeah. You made me laugh spontaneously, right? Speaker. It's working, isn't it? I listen winning is fun. I'm not sick a winning. I'll tell you that. Nope. I'm not. I'm not sick of the American people winning. I don't know. What Linda oh saying in my ear? Why don't you just say it on the air? What I'm so. Sorry. But you know, you guys are just so caught up in the business. But I wanted to remind everybody about the speakers event on Monday..
"joe mansion" Discussed on The Young Turks
"Back on the Turks, zero divisor in the member comments as mentioned is worse than a Republican vindication in these circumstances a bitch. Well, look, I remember when just Democrats ran a primary candidate against Joe mansion the saboteur student. If they notice that all howled how dare you. This is a democrat, any votes with Democrats and important times come again how that workout. Okay, we will right, and and people talk about like, oh, next time you should be primary. He was primarily this time, but the press is always paid very little attention and usually was counterproductive because they love this that wish, okay. Paul Sullivan says jank over the weekend during a livestream. You said it came out cavenaugh did do everything. He was accused of the bar would be too low even for the Republicans to allow it to stand. I find it interesting that you think they've kept the bar anywhere inside at all, did absolutely let it stand. Well, that is a good question. It depends, of course on the severity, right? So if there's a very good evidence that comes out. Kevin did in fact do it. Yeah, they'll probably go to stand, but if it's overwhelming evidence, Mark judge flips and says, yeah, sorry, we did it. Okay, main cabin over in the room and we did it to Christine Blasi Ford. Would they let that stand. They would. They would. In fact, they will then turn on Mark judge and accused him of being bought off by George Soros and the Democrats, and it's political. I guarantee you, it'll be character assassination, they they, they know they have no boundaries period. Well, it's so far they've certainly shown that we'll see. I mean, but at that point, remember it's an impeachment proceedings, not a confirmation, so you need a majority of the house, but you need sixty seven senators. So yeah, you could. I mean, flake will be gone by them, but you could get the likes of flake or Collins to flip back, but it ain't gonna. Do you any good because you're going to have to get all the way to Lindsey Graham to win that kind of impeachment proceedings. So good luck to us. I hear you on that. All right. Last one is also in the member section eclectic miss Chellaney rights and Susan Collins, Jeff flake don't actually believe Dr. Blasi Ford is mistaken. I do believe her. There's just so corrupt and so eager to have another conservative on the court that they don't. Give enough of a damn to let it affect their vote. They just see Blasi Ford and the other cues as collateral damage on the way to take over of the court. That's right. And I. Susan Collins probably tells herself pretty little is, but maybe not. Maybe she's crave maybe she looks at the mirror go, I knew they tried to rape her, but I don't care. I just want power, but probably not probably the way that it goes is she thinks, yeah. I mean, how do we know how do we know? Maybe it was a mini wasn't I got to vote for him. Maybe it wasn't. So it probably wasn't. I'm gonna vote for him. Okay. And why? Because she got twenty one million dollars in bribes to be pro-corporate. He's the most pro-corporate candidate and he's, she's got all this pressure. You're going to get primary by Republicans if she ever does anything against Trump, etc, etc. Right. And so she'll she'll tell herself any lie. She's got to do to tell her to to get to the position. She said, but one other thing that we're going to relate to. The stories we're about to do is. Now, theoretically, she's pro choice so she shouldn't want this conservative adjusts the against Roe versus Wade on the court. But that's why I say it's all in the bribes and she doesn't care about social issues at then the day. The only thing scares about is the money lebowski the American all guards who didn't get covered much during this whole debacle. They're the ones behind the scenes, pushing four or pushed for Kavanagh's confirmation. They got what they want. Look, your life doesn't matter what matters to these politicians is what these corporations want with these corporate executives want and how much money they're gonna make in their campaigns. It's devastating anyway. Okay. By the way. Thank you. Know the members school wrote that in in a TY t. dot com.

"The great W R K. Oh, okay. My friends it is now the countdown to the vote for judge cavenaugh and tensions are now running high. In fact, there may be on the verge of exploding security is at an all time high since nine eleven on Capitol Hill. Republican senators are now getting numerous death threats. Left-wing protesters are camping outside of their offices outside of the Capitol Hill building they are now being accosted at airports in the parking lot. Rand Paul was also now threatened and accosted at an airport. It is getting very very bad as I speak to you massive protests are now erupting across Washington, anti Cavanaugh protests. This is their last gasp effort to try to convince some wavering. Republicans Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, the snowflake Jeff flake. To vote. No, Heidi Heitkamp now says she's a no Heitkamp is now buckled to the left wing mob. So now the question is the only outstanding democrat left who may vote. Yes is Joe mansion. Other than that. It may be strictly down party lines. Kavanagh's nomination hangs by a thread. And Elizabeth Warren is now rallying up the crowd. She is for mentoring the crowd. She is inciting the crowd. Geoff Diehl is actually here in Massachusetts. He is with veterans. He is talking with veterans about what they need and the problems with the VA. Where's Elizabeth Warren? Doing what she does best doing what she does best. Which is in sight.

"Be predictive of how he votes the confirmation vote either Saturday or Sunday, I don't think it's necessarily predictive. I think it I think it is enough to get it to the next step just as as Jeff flake voted to move the confirmation out of the judiciary committee and to the full Senate that yes vote doesn't mean he will vote. Yes. For Brad Kavanagh. I think again in this cloture vote. There are people who may very well vote. Yes. Believing that fine. Yeah. We'll vote. Yes. We'll move it to the vote. We think that we can pull off, you know, mccaskill and and Collins and flake or pull off two of the three and and keep the Democrats together. And let's bring it up to a vote, and let's have it fail and the Democrats will declare victory and NBA thrilled. It'll continue to motivate the Republicans. So I think there could be Democrats that would vote. Yes to bring it up for a vote that have no intention of voting for Brad Kavanagh. See I don't. Think I think there's going to be one democrat who votes to move it to a vote Joe mansion that that'll be it. I think all fifty-one all fifty-one Republicans. I think we'll vote. Yes. To move out. I think it'll be just Joe Manchin. I don't think any of the other Republican a Democrats will vote to move to vote because they're all in the mode of obstruction, which which they've done extraordinarily. Well, now, by the way, the the FBI report is going to be read in secret. You've got Dianne Feinstein who demanded this F B I report who demands transparency yet. Now wants the FBI report that has found no corroboration, no backup to Dr Ford's story. They don't want that public. They just want to be able to leak a pair graph. Here. A Senator maybe just a word that they can then say see this proves our case. And there needs to be more investigation needs to go on. But there is no corroboration of cavenaugh allegations. In the FBI interview reports they're going to read it today. So the Democrats and the flaky Republicans have gotten what they asked for. Got more detail than investigation. Now, keep in mind that you now have the Ford camp Ford champ the attorney's doctor Ford complaining that the FBI didn't come and interview her she she had testimony on television for almost full day. What more would the FBI know? This is your allegation you've laid out your allegation, we've interviewed the people you said would corroborate it and all of them said can't corroborate it. What more do we need? Why would they need to interview or a second time? I I can think of a reason, but here's other than perhaps pursue a criminal charge against her for perjury for lying under oath. And and and this may be falls into the be careful what you ask for because if I'm sending the FBI out to investigate or talk to Dr Ford again, I'm doing it with the intention of how are we going to prosecute her? I don't think that's what they want. So in eighteen minutes from now in a sealed room in Washington, DC, hermetically hermetically sealed Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the judiciary committee is going to walk into that room. And there'll be one copy of this report, and he will have one hour to review it. Then did I get to take their cell phones? Take pictures. This is my question. Steve will they will the senators be required to leave their cell phones outside the room. Because guess what's going to happen? If they are allowed to bring their cell phones in the room of somebody's going to take a picture, and they're gonna text it out. It'll be what will happen is when when Spartacus Cory Booker. I if it hasn't happened before he'll bring a cell phone. This is my theory. He'll bring it in. He laid out. He'll go click, and they'll tweet it right out and the whole world will see each page. I think as soon as some of these folks walkout, you're going to get them saying what I read in the report was they're going to be emergency..

"We're in the one American news network studios in glad you could join us. This isn't over yet. I just got a text message from somebody who says that there are sources telling a colleague of mine that flake is going to vote. No McConnell will move the nomination forward. Anyway, today, they're gonna it's going to get out of committee. They're going to pass the procedural vote would be tomorrow, Tuesday, the full Senate votes. There are people making a prediction that mansion will vote. Yes. The democrat will cross the aisle Joe mansion and vote with Republicans. Yes. But Collins and Murkowski will vote no. If Collins and Marquette and flake, if we lose flake Collins and Murkowski. You lose. If you lose one of the two of those three you win if another democrat or two joins Joe Manchin and crosses the aisle. Something I think is highly unlikely you win you get you get Brett Cavanaugh. It's it's a jump ball. It's still a jump ball. I just like where we are today compared to where we were twenty four hours ago. And of course, Dr Christine Blasi Ford had a very I I'm not gonna pretend that something that happened. Didn't happen. The way it did. She it was powerful. It was a lot of questions about her testimony. Of course, a lot of questions about what the Democrats did to her. And that to me is the most egregious part of all. But here's your description cut number eleven. This is Dr Christine Blasi Ford in front of the world explaining how she claims Brett Cavanaugh tried to rape her thirty six years ago. When I got to the top of the stairs. I was pushed from behind into a bedroom across from the bathroom. I couldn't see who pushed me. Br and Merck came into the bedroom and locked the door behind them. There was music playing in the bedroom. Turned up louder by either Brett or Mark once we were in the room. I was pushed onto the bed and Brett got on top of me. He began running his hands over my body and grinding into me. I yelled hoping that someone downstairs might hear me. And I tried to get away from him. This week was heavy. Groped me and tried to take off my clothes her time because he was very naive rated. And because I was wearing a one piece bathing suit underneath my clothing. I believe he was going to rape me. I try to yell for help. When I did Brett put his hand over my mouth stopped me from yelling. This is what terrified me the most. And it's had the most lasting impact on my life. It was hard for me to breeze that I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me. To your phone calls. Eight hundred six five five Mike we'll start with Eric. Hey, Eric, welcome to San Diego and the studios of one America news network today. How are you? I hope you're enjoying ugly, California. I feel like I'm in the land of what are the what is it? The land of nuts in freaks or whatever. I'm having a great. Visit actually. Yeah. It's it's been a nice trip though. And what a great place to be in here. One America news network. Hope you have a chance to watch him. Yeah. I just have comments first of all I was sexually assaulted in a hospital back in two thousand seven. Oh, my. Attention to the hospital the human resource department, and I was laughed at made fun of. So I remember everything about the day. Like it was yesterday. I can imagine. Before miss Ford has so many holes in her story. I can't believe you guys sit there and say that you have to believe her because she. What do you mean? You mean, you guys have to say you have to believe her. I've never everybody. I listened to on the radio says the same thing you have to believe her story believable. No, you have to listen to her is what I've said from day one. No, you're now. Mike. Going through what I went through. I know that if I ran into this woman. I would not say Hello to her and have a conversation with her like she claims she did with Mark judge. I find it very strange. You mean when she ran ran into him at the store or whatever and was trying to listen, we're never going to know what happened thirty six years ago. But here's something that's pretty powerful. And again, I'm sorry. Thank you for joining up. Sorry for for for what you've experienced. And I and I, and I hope and pray that you can find peace, and and and get through all of that. It's I I think that kind of thing probably stays with you forever. You never forget it. And that's what makes this show powerful. And when you say why here you guys say she has to be believed. Now, I've never said she has to be believed. She has to be listened to everybody that I know has said consistently you hear a claim. And in this case, you've gotta decide whether it can be corroborated or not. You can't go with your gut. What does it matter when people say, well, who do you believe does that really matter at the end of the day because because no matter who you believe. Based on whatever theory you have in your head unless there's evidence in corroboration. There's somebody can say, yes, I know that happened because I was there to it. Ultimately comes down to to an unanswerable question, and that's problematic. But wait till you hear what the sex crimes prosecutor. Rachel Mitchell said at an overnight meeting.
