Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Matt Boyle from Breitbart .com. Matt, thank you for taking time here. Matt, you covered this congressional stuff very closely and you've been tracking it. Walk us through the last couple of weeks from Motion to Vacate to where we are now, Matt Boyle. Yeah look, we just had the third ballot earlier this morning and earlier today and Jordan fell short again. 25 intransigent republicans refused to vote for him. We have a list of those up on Breitbart .com so people can go see if their member of Congress is one of the intransigent republicans who are doing this. This was the third speaker vote for Jordan. Where this all started was now almost three weeks ago. Eight republicans led by Matt Gaetz of Florida did what's called a motion to vacate the chair. They voted with all of the democrats in Congress to remove McCarthy from the speaker's chair. After that happened, then the house republicans had first rallied around Steve Scalise, the house majority leader, but Steve Scalise only got 110 voting members of the house of representatives to back him in conference, which is less than a majority. You'll see the votes that he got in conference were from members from the delegates from the territories, so they don't get to vote on the floor. Scalise's path was pretty much over the second he won the conference nomination. Once Scalise withdrew from the race, the race shifted back to Jim Jordan. Jim Jordan is now and has been for a week now the speaker designate of the republican conference. He's the official nominee of the republican conference for speaker, and he's gotten close. His first vote on the floor earlier this week, he got 200 votes. After that, one member flipped back his way, and another member who was absent is back in voting for him again. But he hasn't been able to break these remaining holdouts. The thing that is abundantly clear about these people that are holding out against Jim Jordan is many of them are on the appropriations committee. So many of them, seven of them actually, including the chairwoman of the appropriations committee, Kay Granger from Texas. Now, Kay Granger from Texas, I'm told by House Republican aides, is like the republican Joe Biden. She's so far gone mentally. She's not with it. And so she's the one leading the charge here. You also have John Rutherford on the appropriations committee. He represents the district here in Northeast Florida. You have Tony Gonzalez from Texas on the appropriations committee, Jake Elsie from Texas on the appropriations committee, Steve Womack from Arkansas on the appropriations committee. So one thing that's clear is that it's the big government, big spending republicans who are doing this because there's a government funding deadline coming up on November 17th. The deal that led the original eight to go after McCarthy and remove him from the speaker's chair funded the government for 45 days. And they motioned to vacate the chair just a couple of days after that. That funded the government until November 17th. And now with the government funding deadline looming, these appropriator, big government, big spending republicans, establishment rhinos are in the way of Jordan on continuing their intransigence. Yeah. So what is the path forward then, Matt? Let's just talk strategically, right? We want Jim Jordan to become speaker. What, if anything, can make these 24, as you call them, and that's not a word I use every day, intransigence, right? That's which means unwilling to move for all of you vocab majors out there. What, if anything, can be done? It does not look like the pressure campaign is working. Matt Boyle. Well, look, I think that they're very willing to wheel and deal. I know they say they aren't. But the fact of the matter is, is that there's there's two ways out of this. I don't think there's any other member of the Republican conference at this point who could be able to get 217 votes and they'll go over in Utah next month, right? So there's a special election coming up there. The fact is, is that I don't think that anyone else could get there. So there's two ways out. Either they figure out a way to get there and vote for Jordan, or, or we're going to end up with a deal with the Democrats and the big government republicans are going to finally go be the swamp monsters that they always say they are. And I think that it's a great clarifying moment. I think either outcome is great for Americans. Americans are learning. We're, we're seeing the hood lifted here. We're seeing how these awful people actually work. Look, Charlie, you know this because you have the good ones come to the turning point conferences, right? Like the fact is, is that there's, you know, people out there generally know maybe 15, 20 members of Congress, the ones who are on TV all the time, the ones who go to your conferences, the right, the ones who come on Breitbart all the time, right? Like, but there's a lot of these really, really bad establishment politicians in the Republican conference in both the house and the Senate. The house is a little better than the Senate because the elections are every two years. So we've been getting rid of the bad ones and bring in the good ones. But the fact is, is that I think this is exposing them all, right? Like, so I think the this is a great moment for the country in that we're getting to see a look underneath the hood and into the, uh, you know, what their guts are showing, right? The intestine, the gastrointestinal tract of the awful place that Congress, but, but do you think the moderates are feeling the heat? I'm not seeing evidence of that yet that they're starting to, okay, so walk us through that because maybe they're just playing a game. They're complaining about, you see this constantly happening now, like where they're all complaining about, they're getting quote unquote, death threats. Look, they're, they're not getting that. I haven't seen actual evidence of an actual death threat. And obviously that would be bad if they are. I think what's happening is people are calling their members of Congress and they're freaking out, right? Like, so like, look, here's the deal. If this was conservatives voting against an establishment person that was the conference nominee, you would see people calling for their committee chairs, right? Like in calling for their committee assignments and calling to strip them off of committees. They did this. John Boehner did it to conservatives. He did it to Mark Meadows, et cetera. I I'm seeing calls Congressman Jim banks, for instance, from Indiana, who's fantastic and is the likely Senate can Senator next Senator from Indiana is calling for Kate Granger, the leader of this. She's the chair of the appropriations committee to lose her gavel as the appropriations committee chair. And people are beginning to pressure whoever the next speaker will be. And I think that it will be Jim Jordan. I think he's going to figure out a way through this and power through it. Look, here's the deal. Kevin McCarthy went through 15 ballots, we've only been through three right now. We got plenty of time here. In the fact is, is that I think the pressure is on those other people because their predictions of a mass exodus against Jordan haven't come to fruition. And the fact is, is that the vast majority of members have been sticking with Jordan since his original first speakership vote ballot, where he got 99 votes, he's moved more than double his way, right? Like, so I, on the first speakership ballot, he had 200 votes, and he had 202 on the second one. The fact is, is that we're in the end game here, right? Like, so that, you know, I think these people can be dealt with. And I think that they can be willed and deal with and if they don't, then I think there needs to be serious consequences. That includes primary challenges. And I'm hearing that there are people announcing and running against many of these intransigents already. And then also, I cut off of the NRCC funding to these people, the party should not be funding people who vote against the party. And then also, and then in addition to that, I'm also hearing, again, the losing of committee assignments, including chairmanships. Let's play cut 143. Matt Gaetz is offering himself up on a platter. Play cut 143. Have no goals, have no asks, have no objectives other than to see the eight of us suffer some consequence for having removed McCarthy. So we've made them an offer. The eight of us have said that we are willing to accept censure, sanction, suspension, removal from the Republican conference. We, of course, will remain Republicans. We will continue to vote with Republicans on Republican principles. But if what these holdouts need is a pound of our flesh, we're willing to give it to them in order to see them elect Jim Jordan for speaker. I want you guys to pause right there. This is Strategically Smart by Matt Gaetz. He's basically saying, what else do you guys want? We're willing to have censure and removal from the conference. Here you go, guys. You want revenge? I'm giving it to you. They have no asks. This is sophomore and we're going to keep on naming the names.
A highlight from Are Conservatives Not Listening To The American People When It Comes To Kevin McCarthy Being House Speaker?
"This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is the Mike Gallagher Show. The DOJ has told Letitia James to make my father's life hell, to keep him tied up in a courtroom, to cost him tens and tens of millions of dollars to distract him. I have a lot of advice for my house colleagues, other than this, follow your heart, but take your brain with you. The best option I think we have is Jim Jordan, the Ohio senator. Now, from the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. Man, I knew people were going to be upset over what happened with Kevin McCarthy, but people are taking this so personally and it's, I hate, I hate to be the adult in the room here. Put your big boy pants on and move on. Let's get another speaker elected. It may very well be Jim Jordan and I'm hoping it is. Do you know what Democrats, what keeps them up at night having to, having to tangle with speaker of the house, Jim Jordan, do you know what a warrior he is? I don't love the removal of Kevin McCarthy. I don't, they're calling it chaos. Spare me the chaos nonsense. It's a disruption. It's an inconvenience. It's a distraction. It's momentary. This is a blip in time. Guess what? Guess what? We're going to get over this and then we're going to beat the Democrats in 2024 because the Democrats, the Democrats are wrecking America and everybody knows it. But the whining and the belly aching and the attacks, the personal attacks on Matt Gaetz and Nancy Mace and I admit I'm surprised by her vote. I don't want to spend too much time on this, but I saw her, a clip of her on CNN last night. She basically said, yeah, I'm fundraising. Yeah, I need support. They're coming at me from all sides and I'm, I'm representing the views of my constituents. What a crazy concept. We got a poll up at mikeonline .com just asking people if you favor the ouster of Kevin McCarthy or not. It's about 80 % yes, 78 I think to be exact, 78 % of the hundreds and hundreds of people who participated in the poll at mikeonline .com have said yes. I wonder if Nancy Mace was able to pull her district because I guarantee you most of her constituents, here's what, here's what the, my dear friends on the right don't understand. They don't seem to recognize the vast majority of our base, of our audience, of our voters, of our tribe, admittedly are perfectly fine with this. You're going to complain about speaker, Jim Jordan, give me a break. But I'm telling you, this is personal to them. You got to hear an exchange between Brian Kilmeade on Fox news. Now this guy, I tell you what, I guess he's turned on Trump. I don't know. I don't, I don't like picking few, picking fights with people in broadcasting. We all have enough challenges as it is. But what I witnessed yesterday in an exchange between the Fox news channels, Brian Kilmeade and Congressman Tim Burchette of Tennessee was as disgraceful an exchange as anything I've ever seen on that network. I'm going to play this for you and I want to get your reaction to find, I want you to tell me what you make of a supposed conservative broadcaster mocking a Congressman for acknowledging that he prayed before what had to be a very difficult vote. Listen to this. And then I want your reaction. Do you think it's going to do for the Republican party and chances of holding onto leadership in the majority when it looks like you're having, you're the ringleader of a circus led by Matt Gaetz who likes to blow things up but not offer any new ideas? Are you happy following Matt Gaetz? Is that your leader? I'm not following Matt Gaetz. I made my own decision. I didn't ask Matt Gaetz to challenge. You wouldn't get a challenge. Do what? If Matt Gaetz didn't stand up, you weren't going to challenge. You know that. I believe I, I believe I would have. Oh, come on. And there, and there. Oh, well, please, you know, playing about it one minute, the next minute you're going to lead an insurgency. So you don't think that praying about it's important. Is that what you're saying? One minute you're praying about how you're going to vote with Matt Gaetz. And the next minute you're going to lead an insurgency? Listen, you got a predetermined answer to everything. No, I have an opinion about what's going on. Do you have an opinion too? And you talk over me every time I try to make a point. Make your point. The point is, is that we're $33 trillion in debt. This speaker was woefully, woefully lacking in leadership skills. He always placed the blame somewhere else. America is going to be better off with new leadership. And that's the bottom line. And who is it? Possibly, possibly it could be Steve Scalise. It could be Elise Stefan. It could be Roger Williams out of Texas. It could be Mark Green out of Tennessee. So they all supported, they all supported Kevin McCarthy, including the most conservative guy. I know Jim Jordan. Why are you smarter than Jim Jordan and the 210 plus Republicans? Why are you smarter? I represent my district, brother. And why are you smarter than me? You're condemning me because I stand up on my own. And that's, that's what I do. I'm not condemning you. I'm questioning you. You don't like being questioned? You're, no, you're just, you're, the line of questioning is very negative and you know that. And I know that you, and when this is all over with, when this is all over with and we have a new speaker and we're running smooth, let's have this conversation again. Were you happy with John Boehner? I wasn't here with John Boehner. Paul Ryan? They're both rhinos. I mean, why do you, they're not, they're not in my camp anyway. So I, but I wasn't here when they were here. So you had 15 yeses for every round you voted for Kevin McCarthy, but you think he's the problem right now? I sure do. It's part of it. He's part of the, this, this whole problem. When you don't, when you deny that there's a problem when in this dysfunctional Washington brother that you didn't, you know, there's a problem. You can't, you can't take, get past the fact we take in 5 trillion. We spend 7 trillion and this and, and leadership. I'm fascinated. I'm fascinated the way you blame Kevin McCarthy, that you're, that you're $33 trillion in debt, but you're going to get a new leader. I'm sure he's going to solve everything. Well, I'm surprised that, that you give him full credit for all the successes that we made. I don't think you should take all the blame. Well, why, why are we backing it up? We had nine months. Exactly. That's a great point. Why do we wait nine months to do something about the wall, something about the budget, something about, well, we never did anything about term limits, which we promised the American I watched him for an hour and 15 minutes. He was doing a, he was doing an awful lot, but not enough for you. Uh, Tim Burchett, uh, Congressman, thanks so much. Now as if that wasn't wild enough, you want to know something wilder? Brian Kilmeade posted that on his Twitter account on X. He was so proud of that condescending, disgraceful treatment of a United States Congressman. He posted it. Now he might have people that do it. I don't know, but I, I would want to scrub that from existence. Surely that guy isn't proud of the way he insulted and berated. I guarantee you I'm, I, I've watched Fox for years. Brian Kilmeade doesn't normally interview people that way. He doesn't insult and, and, and, and have a smart aleck, interruptive that that's not him. It's personal for these folks. And what, what Tim Burchett was trying to say is I'm representing my constituents, brother. Nancy Mace is saying, I'm representing what my constituents want, not what you want. Funny that Brian Kilmeade brought up Paul Ryan. I'll bet he defends Paul Ryan, especially now that Paul Ryan is one of his bosses over at Fox news. Wow. I mean, I'm sorry. That's, that's just wild stuff to see that happen like that. Give me your reaction. 800 -655 -MIKE. We're in the relief factor studios for a Thursday. The PhD weight loss and nutrition phone number is 800 -655 -MIKE. I mean, why is this so, why is this so personal to these guys? Why do you think it is so devastating that we're going to have a new speaker in the Republican caucus? Why are they so depressed and angry and filled with rage? Help me understand it because it's a mystery to me. 800 -65, I mean, I appreciate being disappointed. I get not wanting chaos as they put it. I get not wanting the disruption. I get it. I do appreciate that. But to go Defcon one like that and to rip into one of the, the eight congressmen who voted to oust McCarthy, was anything that happened on Capitol Hill this week, deserving of that kind of a treatment by Brian Kilmeade at Fox news.

The transmission of higher rates really didn't flow through with the normal four to six quarter lag that we were expecting. I think we've seen the beginnings of an unraveling. We continue to think that the Fed is at a peak. We also continue to think that the Fed is going to be cutting interest rates next year.

A highlight from Congressman Warren Davidson Interview - Crypto Regulations, SEC Gary Gensler Hearing & Subpoena, Bill Hinman Ethereum, CBDCs
"Oh yeah, I mean, I think book Gensler should have been subpoenaed already. I mean, I think the amount of patients that chairman McHenry shown, I mean, maybe that's why he's the chairman. He's like more patient study, kind of working it more diplomatic. Like, yeah, I think the subpoena was due like in February.

Welcome back to the thinking crypto podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews with me today is Congressman Warren Davidson, who's a Republican out of Ohio, Congressman Davidson. It's great to have you on. Yeah. It's an honor to join you. Thanks. Yeah. Congressman Davidson, I've followed you for years and all the great work you've done with legislation around crypto. I think you were boy was maybe the first, if I, as far as I remember going back to the token taxonomy days and things like that. Uh, but before we get to all that, you know, tell us about yourself, where you're from and where'd you grow up. Yeah. So I grew up in Ohio, um, a little North of where I live now. So, um, graduated high school in the eighties, 88 listed in the army and, uh, got sent over to Germany when the wall Berlin wall was up, you know, the cold war was there and there, uh, wall separating the East and the West went through East Berlin and got to be there when that came down. And, uh, I'll just say like the people on the other side, weren't looking for more government. They were looking for more freedom and it was definitely a life -defining experience. Uh, from there, I got to go to West point, which, so that's not the normal way you go to West point, but, uh, it worked for me and, uh, graduated, went back into the infantry, served in range of regiment, 101st airborne division, uh, the old guard, you know, so some great units, but ultimately decided I needed to get out and go into a business. So my wife and I, and two little kids at that point in time, moved back to Ohio and, uh, started manufacturing companies, went to Notre Dame, got an MBA, and we basically had a little group of manufacturing companies. And that was what I was doing. And John Boehner resigned as speaker of the house. And a couple friends stopped in and said, Hey, you know, who are you going to back in the race? And I said, Hey, you know, you guys are the political people. And they cracked really a joke. They go, you know, it'd be great if there was an army ranger business guy in the race. So we just laughed and I went home and told my wife about my day. And she said, well, what'd you tell them? Like, well, we just laughed. Cause it's crazy. And she said, no, it's not. You'd be great at that. Well, here I am. So that's been like, you know, gosh, over seven years ago now. So it says it's pretty crazy. So in Congress, I got here and very few people knew much, very few elected office holders knew much about crypto. And I was new on the financial services committee and, uh, you know, kind of started that kind of army ranger business guy, the business guy, financial services also on foreign affairs. And, you know, that's, it's been a, it's been an interesting time to be in politics. Right. Oh yeah. Uh, well first thank you for your service. And, uh, it sounds like that wasn't, uh, just an incredible experience you had with the Berlin wall and so forth and being over there. Um, that must've been something, uh, life -changing it sounds like. Oh yeah. And look, I mean, the military offers a great opportunity for so many people. I mean, it's not a perfect fit for everybody for me. I just love that I got to be a part of it and it turned out phenomenally well for me, but it really is, uh, a great, a great thing to do and, you know, a lot of phenomenal people they'd go in and give a portion of their lives in service. And then unfortunately for frankly, some of my friends and others, they give their full life, um, you know, lost in combat or occasionally a training accident or something, but, you know, it's a serious commitment, but it is really cool that I had the chance to do it. Wow. Um, so let's talk about, uh, some of the work you've done in the crypto legislation front, because I remember as far as I can remember, uh, I, the token taxonomy act being maybe the first crypto legislation, and you can correct me if I'm wrong there, but, um, you know, tell us about the history of the different bills and things you've worked on. Yeah. So when I first got to the committee, you know, it was January of 2017 and, you know, you remember 2017 was like the ICO market people like, oh, you know, I could just write a white paper and kind of skip everything. And there were really good use cases, people trying to do things honestly. And then unfortunately there were just some outright pump and dump scams where people were being taken advantage of. And I'm like, where's the sec. You should be cracking down on these scammers and, uh, you know, they weren't really, you know, reacting well. They didn't really know who was going to do what. So there was this void and, you know, I was trying to get hearings on this subject and you, as the new guy, you don't get to choose which hearing. So this goes all the way into 2018. And, uh, we really couldn't get focused as a committee on the issue. Uh, so I was like, well, I can at least have a meeting. I mean, we won't be able to call it a hearing, so we'll have a meeting. And we did this thing at the library of Congress and it started out with a goal of getting about a dozen people together. And by the end, we had to cap it at 50 and like, people were like, oh, I want to send my CEO and I want to send my general counsel on, you know, we had some of the biggest names in, in, uh, not just crypto, but, you know, venture capital, you know, the New York stock exchange fidelity state street, I mean, you name it, any Andreessen Horowitz, you name it, the big players, we also are like, look, we got to have some startup companies and some founders that no one's ever even heard of some of those kind of knowing that still is heard of. They kind of went away. Uh, but a lot of them have really turned into some of the biggest names in crypto over time. And it was just an interesting conversation. So the goal was this listening to everybody and say, well, how, if we're looking at a tree, how far up can we go before everybody's interest starts diverging and branching out in a different way? And we want to kind of go up to that first level of branches and say, this is the consensus. If you solve these things, uh, you could provide a really difference making piece of legislation. So that was the token taxonomy act. Darren Soto, a Democrat from Florida, and I led the bill and man, think how different crypto would be if we had passed that bill in like 2018.
Despite IRS Whistleblowers, Weiss Planned to Sign Hunter Deal
"Two very brave men, there wasn't a single Democrat on that committee that defended them, that wanted to hear what say, they had to not one, and this Dan Goldman in New York is a cover up artist and wanted to cover up for the Biden crime family and I want you voters to remember that. That's Dan Goldman. He thinks he's representing the people in his district. Well, do the in people his district support this kind of criminality going on and so David Weiss is corrupt. Now I want to educate people out there, particularly in the media, when they say he's a Trump appointee. David Weiss spent his entire legal career in Wilmington, Delaware. Joe Biden owns Wilmington, Delaware. He owns the state of Delaware. It's a tiny state. With a little over half a million people. Nothing happens in Delaware without Joe Biden knowing about it. Use an iron fist. Ah, Mr. Perdue. What the hell's going on with this thing? Hold on America. There we go. Once and for all. So, for a US attorney to be appointed in state the of Delaware by Donald Trump. First of all, he has so much going on when he first becomes president. It's probably not something he's really thinking about. Secondly, the head of presidential personnel at the time was John Boehner's guy. They made a huge mistake, did the Trump administration, on putting John Boehner's guy at the head of presidential personnel. mistake. Huge mistake.

"No one will forget it, at least back then, Cody. That was a really big deal if it happened tonight. I'm not sure it would make such waves, obviously they would get in the news. How do you prepare a president of the United States to be challenged like that? Or can't you? It didn't cross our mind at the time because it had never happened before. I remember it being so shocking that I remember Nancy Pelosi's face and it was like lasers are coming out of her eyes. I think the Biden team is probably thinking about that now. I mean, it happened last year with Lauren bobert. I think there's an equal chance the different wings of the Republican Party heckle each other tonight. But I think now you need to be ready for anything. So that's part of the game now. This is part of the night. Yeah, I mean, hopefully we're not veering too closely to English parliament, but it is getting rowdier and rowdier. Cody Keenan, how do you deal with the money line? The State of the Union is dot, dot, dot. You have to say something good there. But you don't want to be cliche, what's the answer to that part of the speech? Is it different every year? Yeah, I'll be honest, it's the worst line in the speech. It's got to be because it's a line that you have to do because if you don't, then everyone says, oh, the president didn't say the state of union is strong. Right. For us, it was, how do you do that when the first time he addressed a joint session of Congress, we were losing almost a million jobs a month. You can't say that. So we would, we would couch it in the American people. We would couch it in determination. We couch it in different values, but once we did finally merge in that crisis and got unemployment back down under 5%, things were getting better. Then we finally said it again, but it's just one of those things that you have to do that I wish we could just. We always joked about dispensing with it and explaining why so that no other future president would have to do it. And then we decided we don't need to pick that battle. We talked about the potential for a heckler in the chamber Cody. How about the Republican speaker who's going to be sitting behind Joe Biden tonight? He's used to having Nancy Pelosi there, Kevin McCarthy has been going out of his way to say, hey, nobody's ripping up any speeches tonight. That was Nancy Pelosi's act. When this whole idea comes up of heckling or somehow breaking decorum, does Joe Biden take advantage of that? What if he turned around? And shook Kevin McCarthy's hand, or did something to try to act like they were actually getting along that talks were going to be had, he could actually do some real political damage there, couldn't he? I think it's actually a good bet that he does something like that that he turns around and shakes his hand. I mean, that's kind of core to Joe Biden's character. He's just you're not going to change after that time. One thing we did in, I don't know if it was 2014 or 2015. I think 14, you know, Obama was talking about what makes America great. He said, you know, I mean a country like this and the son of a single mom becomes president of the United States or the son of a barkeeper can become Speaker of the House. And that was a surprise to John Boehner and he started crying, which is one of my proud one of my proudest State of the Union achievements. But it was a nice moment. Before you realized I could have written anything there and he still would have been crying. Cody, thank you. I'm delighted you could come in. You're just the voice that we wanted on this broadcast. And I have to know, what are you doing? For the State of the Union, do you do anything special? You watch it at home with the family. I've got a two year old, so once she falls asleep, I'm gonna get it back and open a beer. I'm sure that some old suspicions will kick back in. Cody, don't be a stranger. It was great to have you. Cody Keenan. The book again is grace, president Obama and ten days in the battle for America. I'm Joe Matthew in Washington.

America Just Had Its Worst Aviation Disruption Since 9/11
"We have a lot of news to get to, but let's dive right into it. I want to play cut 52, the FAA, the federal aviation administration, is having a tough day for millions of people that are trying to travel across the country. They have been grounded. Flights have been suspended. Now, there are some flights being resumed thankfully, but there are still over 10,000 flight delays across the country. Let's play cut 52. The FAA tweeting, it is quote experiencing an outage with its notice to air missions system which provides critical flight safety operation information. We are closely monitoring the situation, which impacts all airlines and working with the FAA, to minimize disruption to our operation and customers. We encourage customers to check AA dot com for the latest flight information. Now, the question that many people have is what is causing this? Is it some sort of a cyberattack? Is it a hack? It could be the government is saying it's not, but it could be the Chinese Communist Party retaliating against the House Republicans that have just set up a subcommittee that is expressly anti CCP. And by the way, I don't know if the House Republicans are going to be able to keep up this pace, but they are posting win after win after win. Could be that they're just getting all the conservative stuff out of the way first, or it could be that a new boss is in Washington, D.C. in the House of Representatives, because the amount of wins that we have seen in the last 24 hours makes anything that Paul Ryan and John Boehner did seem like almost nothing from committees to kicking people off committees. Elon the ingrate Eric swalwell, the fang fang lover and many others. We're going to get into that. But it could be the Chinese Communist Party is retaliating via a cyberattack against the FAA notams system because of that committee. That is probably unlikely though.
20 House Patriots Provide the Blueprint for Conservatives
"So the point Horowitz is making in this piece of the blaze 20 House patriots provide the blueprint for conservatives He said no we don't have to bend to the will of the establishment because we're a minority in the Congress Because we wouldn't be a minority in the Congress If you would stop lying to people establishment rhinos to get elected and stop pretending to be conservative We're not pretending to be you You're pretending to be us That's a fact You don't see people running in conservative districts going I love me some John Boehner higher taxes higher spending and open borders No it doesn't happen They pretend to be conservative And then they do the flipper ruski the dipsy do flipper room when they get up on Capitol Hill So don't tell me you guys are a minority We're not a minority You pretended to be us So now you're going to pretend to be a conservative because what a make you pretend That's why And the second point he makes is these 20 patriots who fought in the speaker's race Shows us that a minority of folks up on the hill can use and wield their leverage in a constitutional republic to move the needle in the direction of liberty and freedom and spending constraints in all the things we need for a more prosperous republic if they're just willing to stick to their guns You saw it

"Over the House speaker race. This is the other huge news in the country and it's really divided the Republican Party. I think it's good. I had to be honest with you. Me too. At what point do we have this conversation, right? Yeah, nobody's had a backbone in that party for you. It's nice to see 50% of it, finding the spine. You know what? Even if it's not 50%, even if just a handful. I'm not a big Matt Gaetz fan. So don't misunderstand. But I do agree with them in this particular case. If we're going to do if you're going to do the same old same old, you're going to get the same results. The Republican Party has had a long string of really lousy speakers, right? Newt Gingrich was the last great Republican Speaker of the House. And I can remember Newt Gingrich is contract with America. This is what our pledges, this is what we're going to do. He had accomplished a lot of it. He got tax reform through, he got Bill Clinton, to sign welfare to work, reform. Big move. Those are big moves. Huge. Literally turning the economy around in the early 90s. It was a miserable failure as we were going through a commercial real estate crisis at the time. And then putting their foot down, winning back the House and the Senate. But his leadership and was the economy stupid. Well, yeah, it was when you can get out of the way of the economy and let it grow. And that's exactly what they did. So since then, we've had John Boehner useless, Paul Ryan, useless, Kevin McCarthy is useless. And sadly, Trump is even out there endorsing McCarthy coming. We all got time to get together. And get behind McCarthy, like, look it. Why? Again, McCarthy is up there with the Ukraine flag on. If I see any Republican wearing a Ukraine flag, let's just go back to Ukraine for a second here. You know what? The United States of America. Let me just say something about Ukraine for a second. That nobody seems to understand. All of a sudden you create this darling country. Look at the poor little Ukraine. Look, Ukraine is not Switzerland. Ukraine is one of the most corrupt countries on the planet.

Rep. Jim Jordan: Kevin McCarthy Brings the Team Together
"Think what's interesting is you already have Donald Trump backing McCarthy Apparently making calls for him You have Marjorie Taylor Greene back in McCarthy We have you backing McCarthy We have certain Republican moderates back in the car You know I look at McCarthy and I try to step back he's not John Boehner He's not Paul Ryan He didn't try and undermine the conservative base or the mag of base He hasn't done what McConnell has done in the Senate gone after people he doesn't like to try and defeat them in the general election or in the primaries He's a different cat altogether I think Don't you Yes that is what has to happen in today's political world You got to bring the team together And he has done it so again I think that is what's needed for all kinds of reasons Most of most of which is just how radical the left is I mean again think about what they've done to our country No border record crime $5 gas 41 year inflation 41 year high inflation rate and of course what they're doing to your First Amendment Let me ask you this
"john boehner" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"You know, it is. I mean, one of the difficulties when you have a kind of chaotic Republican Party like McCarthy does is it's hard to get people to breathe and establishment wing that wants you to government responsibly. You have a radical ring that wants to impeach Joe Biden and so Republicans this election really didn't agree on a clear set of legislative goals the way that let's say Newt Gingrich did in the 1994 contract with America. That was in order to focus attention on Biden and the problems with inflation and crime. And it looks like that's worked to a very narrow extent of Republicans do wind up winning the house, but the problem is it leaves a vacuum for anybody to rush in and push their issue. And so one of the things that we're going to be contending with that Republicans are going to be contending with is there's an element that wants to engineer another debt ceiling showdown in order to cut Medicare and social security. I'm sure you guys remember 11 years ago after Republicans won the House, tried to do that same thing. We came to the brink of default. And U.S. government credit wound up being written down. So a lot of concern among both Republicans and Democrats or at least the more responsible ones about what exactly McCarthy led house would look like, what they'd be able to engineer and what kind of problems that might cost for the global economy. You point out in your piece here that, boy, it's tough to be a Republican Speaker of the House. The last two, John Boehner and Paul Ryan, they were effectively hounded out of the position and out of politics in general by the right wing of their caucus. I mean, McCarthy has to be sensitive to that cognizant of that. You know, absolutely. I mean, the lifespan of a Republican House speaker, it's sort of like being the drummer for spinal tap. It's not going to be wrong for very long. Nice. And you know, I argue the piece, but cardi actually has a tougher job than John Boehner or Paul Ryan, the last two Republican speakers who are both hounded out of the job by the right wings. A because the right wing is just more radical today. There's going to be a narrow majority, but the other reason is that the big influential voice on the outside whose dictating a lot of behavior Donald Trump wasn't on the scene for John Boehner, John Boehner couldn't hold on to his job and it was Donald Trump wasn't even weighing in. Well, he's going to be now, you know, everybody's expecting a presidential announcement from Trump in the next couple of days or in the next weeks. And he's somebody who likes to weigh in and criticize people. Kevin McCarthy in particular, and that's one more headache that McCarthy is going to have to grapple with as he tries to cobble together this narrow majority and keep his Republican caucus from revolting.

"john boehner" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Surely, this gives people like myself that have had a history of being bipartisan to work together. Look, we don't know what's going to happen, but let's say the Republicans win by a small amount. They got some Tea Party folks. I think they're called freedom caucus now, but the same thing that are going to demand so many things that are going to be rational. And remember what happened to John Boehner. Remember what happened, Paul Ryan. They couldn't govern without Democrats. And I think the same thing if the Republicans get control, they're going to have a narrow majority and they're not going to be able to govern with the people on the far right. So that gives people like myself that have been able to work with moderate Republicans to get the job done. And that's what I look forward to doing. And if they win by a small majority, I would tell you Democrats in 24 presidential, we have a path to get the majority back and like I said, I look forward to working with my Republican friends and I will continue. I will tell you one more thing. Last night, I got calls from Democrats. I got Texas from Democrats colleagues, but I also got senators, congressman are Republicans that call me and said, I am glad that you're back again. Well, congratulations. One last question here. What does it say potentially that the leadership in the house? And I'm not asking you to say anything negative at all about the leadership, but there are times when it comes to it's time for a new approach. Is this perhaps one of those times? Well, you know, again, I support my leadership, they have to make whatever decisions they have to make that decision. I will support my leadership itself. I would tell you, the problem is not with the leadership. In my opinion, it's a far left that 3% where they say certain things that hurts us moderate Democrats. You know, when the 3% on the far left and the far right, that's what gets the media attention. And that's what they said, oh, you know, therefore, defunding the police are for open borders. Those statements by the far left and by far right is what defines, you know, or they try to define the other side, we'll try to define the Democrats of the Republicans. So again, I support my leadership. They have to make that decision. But I don't think the problems of the leadership are probably with a far left and the far right. Congressman, once again, congratulations on your big win. And thank you so much for spending part of your day after with us. Let's democratic representative Henry cuellar of Texas. Coming

"So much, Charlie pellet from the Bloomberg interactive broker student in New York. This is balance of power. Well, those midterm elections coming up 12 days now will determine which party Republican or Democrat controls both houses of Congress with effectively a majority right now for the Democrats and Senate with a 50 50 that is broken in a tie by Kamala Harris vice president and a narrow majority right now for the Democrats in the House of Representatives. One question we should all be asking ourselves is what difference does it make? How would it really change our lives? How would it affect the economy? I would have affected the companies. I would affect financial institutions. Well, someone who's taken a look at this question and who has a lot of experience analyzing things just like this is normal ornstein. He is senior fellow emeritus of the American enterprise institute, and he's written a piece for the Atlantic called how far would a Republican majority go, norm great to have you, particularly on a subject like this because you are so very thoughtful about this. We've had Republican majorities goodness knows in the past. Why is this time different potentially? You're exactly right, David. And we've had divided government many times over the past. And even when it gets contentious, we still find opportunities to make it work. But this is different. Just to use an analogy, when the Tea Party movement stormed into Congress with the 2010 election, the first midterm of Barack Obama. And egg Don by their own leaders, Kevin McCarthy and then majority whip Eric Cantor. They forced a confrontation over the debt ceiling. And we've had those before and parties have played politics with it, but we came dangerously close to default, while they demanded radical cuts in different parts of government. And if it worked for John Boehner, the speaker who saw that this would be disastrous and Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican minority leader who believed it would be disastrous for Republicans as well. We probably would have gone to default. Jason chaffetz then one of the radical Tea Party types in the House said, yeah, we would have taken it right over the edge. They didn't. But this time we have far more people who are radical coming in just to use as a template, a 126 House Republican candidates with a 95% plus chance of winning tells us 5 38 dot com. Our election deniers, which is a good kind of shorthand for radical. They will be a majority of the majority of Republicans have the house and they've already signaled that they're going to use the debt limit to make a series of demands that are not going to be acceptable to Joe Biden or Democrats, including impeachment of Biden, cutting Medicare and social security and Medicaid and probably firing the secretaries of secretary of Homeland Security and the attorney general. And it's not out of the question that they could lead us into the abyss. So one of the reasons it's so wonderful to talk to you. You have so much experience watching things develop in Washington. There have been a lot of people who talk big before there are real consequences for it. What is the possibility likelihood that even if there are probably to get the majority and even if what you call the radical people really say, yeah, let's go against the debt ceiling and they don't mean it just to get something out of it. They actually mean let's keep the debt ceiling where it is. That the markets might give them a lesson otherwise. Didn't we see a version of that in the United Kingdom in the last two or three weeks? We certainly did in the United Kingdom, although we don't have a mechanism for removing leaders in the same way. And we saw a comparable thing in the collapse in 2008, David as we headed right towards the election. And you remember back then, the Tea Party types balked at the bailout that the president George W. Bush, the treasury secretary Hank Paulson, the fed chair Ben Bernanke, and all of the Republican leaders said, we got to do this or we'll head into a depression. And it failed. With the majority of Republicans saying no, then the Dow dropped more than it ever had in a single day over 700 points seems quite by now. And they came back and supported it. So there might be a severe enough market reaction, but remember, it's one thing if you fail first to pass a debt ceiling increase or pass a. Still with us norm. It sounded like he was kidding another call coming in. I'm not sure. I had a little glitch there. Yeah, that's okay. We all have those norms. Go ahead. Yeah. It's one thing if you fail one time to pass a bailout and then come back the next day and do it. It's another thing if you have a default. And remember that when we came close to the last time in 2011, David, we didn't go over the edge. But we came close enough that it actually resulted in enough of an interest rate increase that it actually costs the government consultants suggested 18 or $19 billion cost taxpayers to fall would be for the first time ever and it would be catastrophic. Let me say, it's not the only thing we have to be concerned about it. And you hope that if

It's a Bloomberg You have a commodity Yeah I do a chart of the year I've been doing a chart of the year for I think It's 8 20 years Okay I thought you did book of the year I didn't know you did At

this week Is it this month It's in October traditionally isn't it Traditionally it's the road trip Go on some You can add that to the road trip too Let's do one right now Emily Wilkins were this going what did I fall into She's with Bloomberg government and I want to talk not about John Boehner but about the other Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi some say a final lap She has to have a framed hope What's her hope right now to stagger through the Sunday talk shows and for that matter to stagger into 2022 As far as the short term what speaker Pelosi's hope is is that she has The White House behind her She has a lot of Democrats behind her And there's a willingness in Washington among Democrats to get this done Senators from Arizona and West Virginia nom was standing Pelosi thinks that she has the ability to get things done And she really does have her caucus behind her When you talk to Democrats in the hall when you say how does this get done I have literally heard people use the phrase Pelosi magic in terms of how confident they are that the speaker is going to be able to get something across the finish line She's talked about that this could potentially be her final term with the gavel before retirement And while no one in Washington wants to predict what Pelosi's going to do this would certainly be a big note to go out on if she can get it done Are we wrong in our simplistic view or at least my simplistic view of how lonely the moderates are How many are there That's a great question It depends what you want to define as a moderate Because we haven't seen the moderates really be entirely cohesive during this process I mean we talk about moderates like mansion and cinema who have sort of been seen as roadblocks Stephanie Meyers But you yeah but if you look at Stephanie Myers they do the moderates in the house They do want to get things done You talk to some who are facing who are from big swing districts who have to appeal to Republicans as well as Democrats and they say yes we not only want to get this reconciliation package done We want child care We want healthcare We think that these are good things to run on And so you do see a bit of division among moderates Those who are very fiscally conservative not big fans of this large social spending package And those who think that it has many good things that they can run on in 2022 Emily John farrow has been asking me all day to ask about deadlines that they have been posting themselves So what are some of the deadlines that we have on the spending plans the fiscal and the social infrastructure So the next big deadline that we have coming up is October 31st that is when the house will either need to move that infrastructure bill that bipartisan infrastructure bell is so many of them would like to do or they will have to pass another short term extension to fund critical highway programs And the goal that speaker Pelosi has laid out is that in doing so in passing that infrastructure Bill they will also be able to either pass that larger social spending package or they will have made enough progress on the social spending package that will know a top line From their next big deadline December 3rd that is both for the debt limit as well as to keep the government funded from not going into a shutdown It seems like we've got a lot of time We've got at least a couple of weeks for the first deadline more than a month for the second but things move slowly in Congress as we've seen and it's really not that much time at all I think that's good for infrastructure talk I do want to shift our just back to COVID for just a minute yesterday Biden gave a speech about how to counter COVID and talking about how he would like to see more companies imposed vaccine mandates How polarizing is this Is it getting more acceptance more broadly across not only Democrats but also Republicans We are still seeing opposition to these vaccine mandates that does seem to be pretty consistent among Republicans But if you look sort of longer term you have seen Republicans stand on vaccine shift I mean I've talked to some members who would very far to the right of the spectrum who have said look we're not that we're anti vaccine We just think that.

Be told it won't make that much of a difference in what courts do because courts have properly construed the fourteenth amendment to provide for women's equality and gay quality as well as racial equality. But i'd rather have it explicit in the constitution has just been here. Because i feel like i'm hearing two different arguments from you and tell me tell me if there if i'm mishearing this because on the one hand you are championing celebrating in this book. The conversation that went on in the eighteenth century to craft this idea of america and on the other hand. Now you're saying well. I also don't want it to be too easy to modify the constitution. Do you not have faith in the in the in the nation's ability now to have those same empowering conversations over the governing laws of the land. Oh i do but remember. The immediately added ten amendments to the constitution within two years of ratifying the thing so constitutional amendment is not impossible. They added ten right after ratifying. My claim is. They made amendments difficult to do compared to ordinary legislation and that was actually a feature not a bug that interns out. I now think a good thing. We shouldn't emend our document unless there's deep consensus about the direction of amendment and the problem right now in america is there's not sufficient consensus to actually move us strongly one way in one direction or the other so given that we should be hesitant because remember the losers in any amendment process are part of the society as well and if you if you lightly emend fifty one forty nine. That doesn't always actually work out. So also that's why. I changed my mind on this overtime. Okay now think. It's wise to require a strong consensus before we amend but not an impossible consensus and almost all the amendments we've added have been really good ones and none have been bad ones. And that's and that's not true at the state level. Where it's too easy to amend is there is there a lack of consensus nationally or the appearance of the lack of consensus because and the appearance because of something else in the constitution for like the way government is structured in the constitution. And and here's why. I ask that because there are constitutional scholars out there who would say that the united states right now at the federal level their argument is for example is looking both at constitutional scholars who've been published by the hoover institution and on the right and the nation on the left. So right who would say that. For example the nation is poorly governed right now because of the way congress is structured. You call you talked about mala portion men but that congress in fact is not actually even wired down to the level of what's written in the constitution to solve problems of national interest because it's built it's built to avoid the tyranny of the majority and instead it's wired to then allow parochial legislators to ansel answer to only their own local special interest. So you will never have the appearance of consensus for big issues of of national import of which we face far more. Today i would argue in the twenty first century than we ever did in the eighteenth century. Well i in my lifetime. We amended the constitution multiple times In the nineteen sixties so. I don't think the fats look. It's easy to blame the competition rather than looking the mirror and blame ourselves. Okay here at the fundamental problem in my view is that some. My fellow citizens are kind of crazy and until they get over that this is where we began with with with this chaney. The problem isn't the constitution. The problem is that there are lots of people today who are moving wanting move us in the wrong direction and no constitution that wants to be democratic can solve that problem just with a magic wand. The problem isn't i would say the structure of congress which is not a problem the nineteen sixties when we you know did amendments or the nineteen when we did amendments or the eighteen sixties when we did amendments or the eighteen the early eighteen hundreds when we we did amendment to the seventeen ninety s when we did a members. The problem is not the structure of constitutional amendment. The problem is today to many of my fellow citizens. Actually i would say have Unfortunate ideas and until we actually start talking to each other more and listening to each other better. We can't go forward it but you can't blame the constitution. You have to look in the mirror. I would agree in terms of the the danger of the lack of of meaningful open minded conversation this country completely and at the same time though again the very the very same thing that that leads you to call the con- the constitution. A hinge point in all of human history is the power of its initial ideas and how they set the template for what for this nation. Okay and i guess. What i'm saying is i think it ought to be easier for us to change that or adjust that template and look. I'm gonna. I'm gonna lean thomas. Jefferson himself wasn't at jefferson. Who said that. No society can make a perpetual constitution that the earth should belong to the living jenner mock and i mock him savagely in the book because he was an airhead on some of these things and so be careful what you wish for my friend because john boehner was speaker of the house and if he can just at any given moment amend the constitution because he's got a simple majority or kevin mccarthy or newt gingrich Then you know you might not like some of these amendments so thomas jefferson wasn't even there in seventeen eighty eight. He said a lot of silly things. Thank god he was a hypocrite. So i say in the book. He has to flaws. He's too much of a utopian but he's also a hypocrite and these flaws actually cancel out because some of his ideas were actually silly ones and and his idea that the constitution should lapse every nineteen. Years was actually a bad idea. Madison was horrified by it. I discuss it in pretty great data and i changed my mind and all these things. If you talk to me forty years ago. I would have said you know if i ever have a son. I'm going to name him jefferson because he's my hero. But i've changed my mind on those things because i've come to sort of see some of the complexities and maybe i've just gotten old and and crotchety. That's that's the other possible. Does as well. So i don't. I am not diminishing the the importance the urgent importance of the emergence of a very influential wing of the republican party slash. I would say the entire republican party. Now that is beholden to beliefs that undermined the constitution that that is an emergency situation. And i'm not diminishing it at the same time though. I think that. I'm just going to keep pushing this professor. If you forgive me right now this is a conversation. Yeah because i i i hear you saying that. I'm not arguing arguing for transformation of the fundamentals of what's in the constitution but by not allowing a document to be go through the process that conversational process of modernisation. You end up with the kind of constitutional calcification don't you. I mean some of your critics from not of you but of the constitution from the left who say well the very fear that the john banners and and mitch mcconnell's of the world might propose amendments that we don't like i mean that is what's leading can lead to the frozen democracy which has also been brittle one is it not. I know there are people who say that due respect. I know them extremely while. I read everything they written in. They're wrong okay. So i'll say it a different way again. I have testified on multiple constitutional amendments in congress. Here the ones. I've testified on amendments. That would have had changed the first amendment so that the government can put someone in prison for protesting government action by burning a flag and that that had.

"I love it. When you talk about the quote unquote progressives because they are no longer progressives. They are self about Socialists. Miss Occasion, Cortez Ilhan Omar receded to leave. Miss Diana presently have made it very clear They are Socialists in that, by the way, the agenda that they're promoting whether it's the green new deal or it's a government health care. These are socialist agenda items and really, this is what we're building off of your talking about what they're offering. Is a radical socialist agenda. Nancy Pelosi and this group that has taken over the house. It's about open borders and closed schools. It's about the largest tax hike. To pay for the socialist agenda since World War two is what they're proposing in the list goes on and on. So the message is evolving. I think the country understands you brought up President Biden. Some polling that came out just in the last week shows that the I think more than half the country views his agenda right now is too far to the socialist left so While he may be a still viewed as quote unquote, a moderate, certainly his administration. The actions they've taken so far have shown a huge lurch to the left of the socialist left, and I think that's going to harm them at the ballot box in November. 22 Well, Congressman, I know it's clearly part of your job is NRCC chairman to sort of clearly define that contrast and defined the opposing party. But there there, you know, we have questions about how to define the Republican Party as well on gun thing that really got my attention. A lot of people's attention was this instance of former Speaker Paul Ryan warning at a Reagan presidential library event against the populist appeal appeal of one personality. On essentially warning against the Republican Party, tying its itself too closely to the personality of Donald Trump, who lashed out today in a couple of statements calling Paul Ryan a rhino, but I'm curious. What is Paul Ryan's role If he has one in the Republican Party, is he somebody? Republicans looked at his the guy who's not that long ago speaker does he have a role in the Republican Party? And if so, what is it? Aw, listen. Everyone's welcome in the Republican Party, and Paul is a good friend, John Boehner is still a friend and active new Gingrich is still out there with his strong voices. What I would say the Jack is the last administration. The Trump Administration actually did some amazing things, reducing taxes on middle class families growing the economy, creating American energy independence, securing our borders. I think this new administration and our colleagues on the other side of the aisle these air, extremely popular things across the country with the American people, and now they're suggesting they want to undo all of it. You've got a crisis at the border that's developed leading into this interview. You talked about the fact that gas prices have reached that Hi at the pump that we haven't seen since 2014 with the these actions. I think they're going to find that it's going to be very difficult at the polls when that when you go out and try to sell something different than what Republicans were all about the last couple of years, and I think Paul Ryan even agrees with that. Congressman earlier this year. We saw Republicans lose those two Senate seats in Georgia and part of the reason why was because Republican voters were repeatedly told by former President Trump. At the 2020 election was rigged, and they didn't see the point in turning out to vote again. The men Post had a story this month, reporting that two thirds of Republicans still believe the election was stolen. Despite being told otherwise by officials like Trump's own attorney General William Bar. What do you need to do to convince voters do you need to give Vince voters? At the last U. S election was legitimate. Well, keep in mind and believe that after the George W. Bush Al Gore race 18% of Democrats believed that that was the legitimate outcome of the election. I We're gonna move forward. I think the press wants to focus on.

"Clark here coming up before seven o'clock. Well, even a potential infrastructure deal to discuss the Sooners. Mike Emanuel joins us. We Shall I want to talk about that? Also, I want to get his take, essentially on whether check sure is going to go ahead and force the January six commission vote. On the Senate side, which will not pass. Let's start with the potential infrastructure deal. It involves Senator Roger Wicker, a Republican on the Mississippi. Mike Emanuel. Welcome back to double the ulcer. It's great to have your what are you hearing? Don't get even. Yeah, Basically, there's a lot of horse trading going back and forth on infrastructure. I think Republicans have have countered with Hey, we think we could do about a trillion dollars in infrastructure. And so the White House went from, I think 2.3 to about 1.7. Republicans have bumped it up to one million. I mean, one trillion Excuse me Trillion, um and yeah, exactly. And so, you know, is there a sweet spot there of 1.31 point 41 would think so. But things are hyper partisan here in Washington, and so you know, You get a sense that Democrats could say we tried and force feed 1.7 trillion, But then they would have to have all Democrats on board for that. Um, And so it's not entirely clear how this plays out. But there's still a lot of talking going on which is constructive in Washington. We'll see if they can get a deal. I always said, And I hate to go all rush Limbaugh on you and say I told you people so, but I thought it was gonna be one point for trillion and they would put the reconciliation chit back in their pocket to possibly use one more time before that expires if they could get 10 Republicans on board, and I think 10 Republicans are obtainable. But I think you would have to strip out a lot of the you know money for people. Um, you would have to really more narrowly define it to traditional infrastructure, bridges, roads, highways, tunnels. Broadband, a 21st century edition of infrastructure but very relevant for our lives today, Um and and if you leave it at that, I think you could peel off 10 Republicans pretty easily. But there's a temptation of going big to appease the left. And if they want to do that, then they lose all Republicans, and then they would have to do the The the week off this reconciliation, reconciliation. Excuse me and and then go forward without Republicans, But then you have to have all Democrats on board and And the margins are very tight. 50 50 Senate and ah, very slim majority in the house until you better make sure every Democrats onboard or else If they didn't use reconciliation for infrastructure, which I think is smart. What else could it be used for before next November? Because you know it's done then. So what else could they use for? It has to be a budgetary item. Correct? Exactly. Right. So you know I potentially something related to taxes, I would suppose, and I haven't heard seriousness gush ins about other items that could be used for but One would think that you know, something that affects the bottom line of the budget with it would have to be part of it. And so isa their taxes with something else, something sweet that they really want. Potentially and obviously, that's nerve racking for Republicans who are very worried about taxes going up and you know the impact that could have on our economy. Talking with Mike Emanuel, chief watching correspondent for Fox News. Can I just play a parlor game? Let's say that they lose the house. They lose the Senate next November. Democrats I'm talking about And and Joe Biden as these two or three big initiatives that he's passed. He's now going on 79 years old at that point, Do you think he says You know what I'm going to take my dogs back to Delaware and spend a little time in the backyard tag your head VP Harris, and if so, would she even accept that because that kind of ruins her historic legacy that puts her in the Gerald R Ford category. That's a great point. And and it kind of reminds me of John Boehner, who had the pope he's a Catholic, has has the pope at the SQ s Capitol and says This job is never going to be better than it was today. In fact, it's going to be a lot worse. So, audio's see you later, folks. Paul Ryan, the hot potato was yours. Um and so, look, you know, I think a lot of people have to be careful here because I think a lot of people would say Oh, you know, don't Don't start saying stuff like that. You can't I know that. Don't be a conspiracy theorist, but But, hey, you know, I think there are a lot of people in Washington who are wondering about that Because the gentleman is of a certain age he got to the mountain. He's got his majorities. Right now. He's getting some things across the finish line. And are the back two years of his presidency. Gonna be his pleasant, potentially not, especially if you follow history when the President's party usually loses seats in Congress. But you know, we'll see the next. However many months it is until November 2022. There's to be a whole lot of happening here in Washington to to, you know. Effect that election, so we'll see how it all plays out. Yeah, I didn't mean to drag you into that because more respect for you than have you get down and dirty, nitty gritty of conspiracy theories. I just I just it just bounces around my noggin. Once in a while, I wanted to let me be clear. It's certainly something people here in Washington or thinking about, um, you know, because he, you know again. He's an older president, the oldest president we've had and so you know, we'll see how it all plays out how the election plays out first and then We'll see how how much further he wants to go. Whether he wants to fill out the four years whether you want to go for eight or or whether he's had enough, Chuck Schumer said he will definitely hold a vote before Memorial Day. Whether to establish the bipartisan commission to investigate January 6th. The old adage never confuse activity with accomplishment. Why does he just want to put his a Republican? Competitors on the record. Yeah, I think he wants to get everybody on the record, and you know that that whole we're going to do it before Memorial Day. Timing in Washington's not always Swiss. And so you know, good. Could he say, Well, you know, there's good faith negotiations and we'll bring it up after the recess. Absolutely. Um Or he may want to make a point And he may want to say, uh, Republicans are obstructionists. They don't want to find out what happened. January 6th. They don't want to. You know, hold president Former President Trump accountable So you know that that could be honestly a campaign issue for his people going into next year Since we're talking about midterm elections s.

Now in his new book on the House, a Washington memoir. This is a colorful reflection on his years of public service and presidents and the politicians that he encountered along the way, both in Washington, D. C and on. Numerous golf courses. And now without further ado, allow me to welcome to the Commonwealth Club Speaker John Boehner. Well, more so thank you and good afternoon to you and to all over Tunisia. I'm looking forward to, uh, this discussion today and I, uh, writing books was dying by post not what I do. But over the years after I retired, I thought you might have been a pretty interesting life. Very interesting career. I think, uh, I think I could write a book to be pretty interesting. And so once. It's not about doing it, the filing out. Finished on, dear, We are that so well that Melissa far away well, so I looked at some of the reviews. Your book's doing very well. It's been reviewed and sort of all the fancy publications and the one that I thought I did. A really good job of sort of summarizing was from the L A times where they wrote Quote Reading. John Boehner's political memoir is probably a lot like just sitting down next to an old timer at the bar where he used to work growing up in Ohio. There's a lot of talk about the way Things used to be. And before you know it, you have had one too many. And you're not sure just how you're going to get home. So it is a very conversational book. Right? It is that was that when you set out to do it really feels like you're sitting with someone just telling his stories. Can you talk about your process and what you meant to do here? Well, well, I was attempting to do Woz want to be me on? You know, I'm known for being camp it. Sometimes we have plenty being straightforward on by one of the book to sound like me. Trust me. It sounds like May I wanted it to be interesting. I brother enough political memoirs and my life. On realized I did not want to write a book like all those other ones, so that red and so I wanted T o. I wanted it to sound conversational. I really did not want to have to record my own deal book. You know, I was just a lot of work now. I just I really don't wanna do it. But my friends and my staff have beat on me to no end and and so it was. That was really hard to do, But it's the same thing there. I wanted it to sound like I was having a conversation. With the person listening. Don't not worked out. Fine. Thankfully. Yeah, I mean it really It really is. It's a very I found myself, you know, finishing it far too early. I'd set aside a certain amount of time I flew right through because it's just it just moves along so well and a number of stories sort of take place on golf courses, of course. And especially with a certain former senator Joe Biden, and you talk pretty pretty positively about President Biden and about your friendship with him. You talk a little bit about that. And how do you think he's doing as president? Well, Joe Biden did. I have been friends for 30 years. Eyes a traditional Democrat. I would describe myself as a traditional Republican, but, you know, we're both Roman Catholic growth grew up and kind of the same guys circumstances. And, uh, well, we seem to understand the trouble. On During the five years on his finger. He was vice president. On. There were a number of times that on behalf of the Biden or Obama administration, hey, stepped in and be the negotiator between the White House and the Congress. So we have two more times that we get to spend with each other. But you know, every year or sometimes waste here, there'd be a joint session of Congress where the president would speak. And Joe Biden as president of the Senate would join me on the diets and we set behind President Obama. So, you know, While we're waiting for the festivities to start on the president finally be introduced. We spend ample time Upon the diets by ourselves. All right. One year I was 2011 or 2012. I was talking to him about the golf game. I played the previous summer, right shot by shot, even par. That's got a problem and I was telling Joel Vala on. Finally my staff came running over. To say it's all alive. And here, the president's might. His microphone was picking up our entire conversation. Thank goodness we were talking about girls feel like that's what you guys were talking about that a lot of other things, but It was just go. Well, it was great that you you talked about what It's like to be the speaker and to sit. You have to sit there without Moving a single muscle while the president gives his speech. It's the president tonight on anything, I would have done. What I've got me in trouble. And so I decided early on. I wasn't I'd see another speaker sit up there and Do things that they shouldn't have done. Andre got extortion, hated by the press over it, And so I I decide I'm losing my stare in the back of President Obama's head. Not make one facial expression. The only thing that was ever reported about me in the state of the union was that some reporter suggested I looked bored, but weren't you though? A little bit. I want to go. What the hell are you talking about? I'm gonna do all the negative things wrong right down the million things, but I didn't do any of them. I just sat there and behave myself. I always wondered what it goes through the mind of the people have to sit there on camera for three and sort of endure this speech. You were right about President Clinton and Obama and you both sort of and you say about both of them it in different ways that they had run a samad aerate or sort of as a sort of post partisan President, and then you sort of tact left when they got into office for Bill Clinton. It was with e. You know, the health care? Well, actually, both of them. It was really health care reform. Um, How is Joe Biden falling into that same pattern? Or do you think he's um He's sticking with what he what he ran on. What do you make of his is 10 years so far. We've got 50 50 house essentially and 50 50 Senate. Joe Biden won the presidential election frankly narrow, which is a prescription for divided government and, frankly, the way things are going to get done, we're going to get done in a bipartisan fashion on so but I've watched from the beginning of the year and When push comes to shove Joe's always trying to keep this party together, and it was kind of lean to the left. The progressive Caucus is is breathing down his neck on. There's been this skirmish underway, Frankly, since election Day on every time he kind of moves to the left. Keep The progressives in the party. It's kind of a backhand to Republicans, and as a result, it's hard to do a bipartisan deal when there was that bipartisanship s so it's gonna be interesting here in the coming months to see how this plays out because there's an example is infrastructure Bill's not gonna happen on a partisan basis. I don't think the Democrats have the votes to do it on a partisan basis. You know, Joseph thus far I have long end of the day for him. Or, frankly, anybody who serves in the office of president. It's the toughest job in the country on..

Republicans using so much vulgarity. That it would be hard for him to do a reading here on the radio. All of which leaves a question.

We can have that That's bad for society. But what's the lottery? It's the government quote Monopoly monopoly on on betting. We see more more states now as a means of garnering revenue. We're gonna air mark this money for education. On top of all the money. They're taxing us anyway. And then we find out. Not all the money goes to education, but usually the General fund. So between gambling which is now expanding now, the the the weed industry if you want to call it that Is expanding and Meanwhile, it's monopoly and they'll end up making more money and government And then I'm sure sweetheart deals will happen behind the scenes on day care, not that everyone else that would do it would be considered doing something illegal. Yeah, You're right, Sean. I mean, look, I'm one of those people who thinks legalizing marijuana is not a good thing. It has a lot of terrible consequences for society. When I have friends who are libertarian, too, You know, believe it should be freely available, and when you talk to them, their basic attitude is Well, you know, people should be able to grow it and to be able to use it. But what's happening in the states is not that what's happening in this? The states is it's being a legalized. But then the politicians meaning most times the governor's sometimes other state cabin officials. They get to pick and choose who is the one that's going to get the gold mine? It's going to get a limited license in a controlled market on is going to be able to actually sell marijuana legally and guess what? By virtue of the fact that they get to pick who gets the licenses. It's not just the state government who were going to make money. It's actually the politicians themselves and what Eric's done in this report. Shawn is shown from Andrew Cuomo's New York to California to the rest of the country. The people who are making the money are the politicians, the politicians, family members, lobbyists connected to the politicians. They're all getting rich through this legalized scheme. And so it's not really about personal freedom. It's not about medical marijuana. It's about politicians finding yet another pocket in which they can enrich themselves. Eric, you wrote this piece. You've you've done the deep dive into this. Why don't you walk us through the intricacies of what Peter just laid out here? Andre how This is about money in their pocket, too. Well, absolutely. And I think a smudge as the article that you referenced to begin the segment. How the marijuana industry saying Hey, now the Democrats are in charge. We stand to do very well. The reality is that we've uncovered in this report is that actually, Democrats do really well as a result of the marijuana industry itself. Now John Boehner is a notable exception if at the federal level they do, in fact legalize marijuana John Boehner because of his past several years of service, lobbying on behalf of the marijuana company stands to make up to $20 million. He's hardly the only prominent politician who stands to cash in or had who has been cashing in in your state shot of New York Governor Cuomo in 2017, U, had been hard pressed to find somebody with more against the legalization of recreational cannabis. Then Andrew Cuomo. Yet here we are. Just two years later, he's gonna total 1 80. That's one of the questions. We sort of investigating this report. What? Well, what changed? Um, over a million dollars worth of campaign donations and lobbying efforts is one of things that change for Andrew Cuomo. Also, he hired his chief of staff there, brother and Father works for a lobbying company that represents Marijuana companies. And so I think you know one the big takeaway for us. In addition to the idea that it's just, I think in agree just breach of the public trust. The public officials have friends and family. They're making money off of public policy. The idea that when the corona virus epidemic, Okay hit, and we saw American life as we know it end in March of last year, I couldn't send my kids to school anymore. I don't know about you. I couldn't go to church anymore. But in 30 of the states that issued a stay of home order of one variety another they allowed cannabis dispensaries to stay open. So I think you know when you follow the money is Peter's so great about always remind this to do. I think that helps explain why other basic and vital functions of American society ceased. But the part industry state open It's an amazing story, and I go back and I used the I think it's a legitimate example. If you look at, for example, the battle against organized crime over the years Well, what were they involved in? They were involved in drugs, Prostitution, gambling, loansharking, etcetera. Right, Peter? All right, so just that we watch with the tobacco industry, okay? A lot of people. Lot of lawyers got very rich with lawsuits and also the governor. Governments now tax these things to death. I mean, you could really trace the entire Eric Gardner situation to Here's a guy why wire police resource is being used to tow. You know, and wasted on a guy that selling loosey cigarettes, he's That's all he's selling, because the crackdown is about money, and the money is is if they're bringing Cartons and cartons of cigarettes into a state like like New York. They're not getting their cut of the action. So gambling is bad and illegal. Running. The numbers is bad and illegal, but the lottery's okay sports betting is now going to be okay. You can't sell drugs unless the government decides they want to sell it. Make a lot of money. No, You're right, Sean. I mean, that's that's seen here. Problem is that too many of our political leaders and unfortunately people on both sides of the aisle. Recognize all of this stuff is a business. I mean, one of things we noticed in researching the cannabis industry is the promises always been that if you legalize marijuana, it gets rid of people selling it illegally. In other words, it's going to hurt these criminal gangs who have made all this money for marijuana sales, right? Well, The problem is precisely what you said earlier in a state like California they tax marijuana Legal lease sold marijuana so high that the criminal gangs that are selling marijuana really have not seen a change in their business. In fact, they're doing better because it's now legal to possess it. You're not going to get thrown into jail. But the price of the legally sold one is so high because of state taxes that these criminal gangs are not being damaged it all they're doing quite well. And so this, I think, is one of the most important thing that all Americans need to consider..

Members have been removed from committees before but by their own leaders, Kevin McCarthy, the minority leader in the House of Representatives. He ousted Steve King two years ago. John Boehner when he was speaker of the House. Back in 2012, he removed three Republicans from committees. He basically didn't think that they were being team players, but this is a little bit different, having the entire house do it. That's brand new here is Jim McGovern, the chair of the House Rules Committee. A member of this Clothes. Is calling for assassinations. That's the that's the new president. Republicans tried to return the favor. They introduced an amendment to strip Democratic Minnesota representative Ilan Omar of her committee assignments. Democrats ruled that Amendment out of order, Fox is Chad per gram. Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell has condemned Green saying quote her loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party.

Both of us seem to have figured out that The way forward is a McConnell lead way and McCarthy lead way that affairs summary of your view of where the Republicans find themselves. Well, you may have heard that Trump will no longer be president after noon tomorrow. Correct. So, look, I think the news just turns A zit always does. To a new president. So I mean, I was listening to your discussion with David about immigration. And of course, it's going to turn to what the news is. I think this is kind of following the news, as opposed to being obsessed with Trump that that is exactly what I think. Now. Let's go to what The President Biden soon to be President. Biden has proposed You heard my conversation with David. Do you think the Biden proposal is an opening bid or a line in the sand? It's an opening business, but, um there's a good chance I believe of something passing. And maybe not all that different from what Biden is proposing. Did not say that is that I covered the gang of eight negotiations really, very closely back in 2013. And you may remember that the gang of a comprehensive immigration reform bill got 68 votes in the Senate. Unanimous Democrats and we'll do about 14 Republicans. About a third of the Republican conference in the Senate voted toward Theo only reason it did not become law. Is because John Boehner, the House speaker's stopped it in the house. Ah, lot of conservatives like dunk on John Boehner. But that would become all if if Boehner had given it a vote, essentially, so he is the one You really stopped the gang of eight bill..

"You know, we were all deplorables first. And now now everyone that supported the president will is essentially a trader trying to engage in a coup. Look, not even everybody that was on the steps of the Capitol was involved in violence. You know, tons of people from Ohio, Ohio State district came out there. I talked to multiple people who brought their wives and daughters to that event because they thought it was gonna be like all the other President Trump events they were peaceful. Events. There were patriotic events you here long speeches from the president people. He fires up the crowd, but you fires up the crowd to support him not to go do violence. And so that was the thing that was different Now. Why was it different? Absolutely. I think we should She study that, And I think we have to push back and not let people like. Don Lemon and Nancy Pelosi, try to redefine this is something that it was not And just like it was wrong to try to say that black lives matter being represents all the view. All the views of people who said the words Black lives matter. Uh, you know, everybody agrees. Yes, Black lives matter, but I don't necessarily support the nonprofit organization that uses that name. And all their activities and ideas. On. They try to marginalize anybody that would attack their organization as if they disagree with the principal, right, And they're essentially the same people trying to redefine the entire you know, nearly half of the electorate. Right? Yeah, And it's for their own partisan advantage. And it's trying to split turned its with the folks on the right into two parties effectively, which is all politics and it's not It's not helpful for our country. Lastly, your predecessor entitled. John Boehner, speaker of the House who's now in retirement, said, quote here is the president of the United States, In my view, inciting a riot. And the capital being threatened. It's time for Donald Trump to consider resigning his post. He's violated his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, unquote those of the words of John Boehner. Your reaction. I have a number of people who I respect personally who feel that way. You know, I disagree with it. You know, the president believes that he was, you know, the victim of a stolen election. And it's within his right to make his case that he was he has to do it lawfully. I believe the president did it lawfully. I think he could have done it differently. And I think to the extent that you know, if you'd have told me I would have got more votes in this election in my district, and Donald Trump, I would I was surprised on election night. Actually got more votes than Donald Trump on. When I talk to people who were supportive of me, it wasn't because they disagreed with Donald Trump's policies. It was the how he did it, not what he did, but how he went about it. And I think that was on display their most most egregiously with how he treated Mike Pence and frankly, how he treated the facts around what Mike Pence could do So again. I think in the with some, with some step back, get some perspective. The fight's over. The votes have been called. That's how we fight in congressmen vote. The votes have been called. And, you know, Joe Biden is in fact, the president elect, and there are people that are continuing. Always feel like that's wrong. Just like they're gonna be people that always feel like it was wrong. A couple years ago that the Saints weren't in the Super Bowl and the Rams let right uh so but but the game's over the play was called.

You know, It wasn't till later on, you know, it's no nothing can to prepare even a seasoned politician for the strain and spotted this in spotlight of a presidential Campaign. It Z adopting the hunting experience, and not many people can can handle the pressure of that. Someone who's so relatively new to politics and certainly never exposed to that kind of attention before you know it was bound to crack under the strain of it. What about his decision in poker parlance to fold his hand on the economic summit? Yeah, well, that one night I didn't argue against. Unfortunately, I argued for so we had We had managed to come out of the convention with a 56 point lead on Obama, part of a convention bounce out. Convention bounces usually dissipate and we knew they would dissipate but by the, you know, buy, you know the end of September when you're late September we were. I thought very competitive, but we still have a chance in a horrible what was then a horrible environment for the Republican candidate. President Bush. Bless him, You know, not entirely his fault, but was very unpopular in the post Katrina thing. He had terrible numbers, and it was easy to tag the Republican nominee is George Bush's third term, the wrong track number? I think, Jim, you know the famous polling formulation, right track wrong track. I think was 88 wrong track. I don't think it's ever ever. I don't even think now with covert. It's anywhere near that. So was terrible environment, but we will probably wasn't appointed to of Obama when Lehman Brothers collapsed. And we just looked at each other. Like you know what? What? What? What can we possibly do? Tow salvage this situation? We really were kind of out of ideas. At that point, we said, Well, look like, you know, Looks like we're gonna put country first and put country first. Let's let's go try to figure out how to solve this. So let's zip temporarily freeze. The campaign will go to Washington and since we got there, though, and went over to meet with leader the Republican majority leader, then majority leader, a boner. Um We knew right away that we had tied ourselves to the House Republicans because they would say yea or no and that that was a terrible, terrible mistake, and they couldn't give a damn what John McCain told them to do. They could care less and we were suddenly involved in what was better left solved by others. In that particular juncture in John McCain's life and And at a loss to figure out how to make the most of it in the sort of notorious meeting at the White House that he asked for. He tried to get boner to say what he needed, you know, and everything what McCain calls his meeting and Bush turns and says John And he says What I want here with John Boehner has to say he wanted he wanted to get some kind of idea what he hit wanted would ask Bush for and the Democrats for that boner could deliver to his caucus, and that's why it was sort of, you know. Uh, that's why he acted that way in that meeting, But it was a mistake. Was it stupid blunder? We should have seen it coming in. There was I don't say it was panic was just a loss of You know when you're when you're when you're when you struggled and kicked in college, a way to get up on the 40 yard line. And suddenly you're back. Knocked back very late in the race, Tonto, the one yard line, you know it, You know you have it with you down to go. You have a tendency to say conflict, putting it up, you know, and throwing a Hail Mary, and that's essentially what it was. And it blew up in our face. And that was just Yeah. And You know, I mean, we started realistically knew from that point on it was very, very unlikely he could win. How long did it take him to recover from that mistake And from his filthy with the feet? You know, I think he recovered. He just gets busy. He's a man with so many enthusiasms. He loved his work. He loved the Senate. You know, he got back. He threw himself into every fight he could find, you know, and even issues he hadn't expressed particular interest in before he would get involved in Majestic stayed busy. I remember he annihilation night. He was very stoic, You know, when out, gave give a concession speech and I think well, Stand the test of time, You know for graciousness and Spirit of patriotism, love of country, But he turned to hit the his detail leader of the secret terrorist detail leader and had its You guys have been great.

Alliance. Yeah, Um and I happened to be standing right beside him in 2007. When Vladimir Putin suddenly turned And gave a very aggressive, very nasty speech. Yeah Security conference What I could hear John McCain saying partly to me, but mostly to himself. I thought was, we have to find ways to work with him. We have to find ways to work with him. He was known as a hawk. But in fact He tried to reach out and I think Well, I'd love to hear you describe what you think his accomplishments since foreign policy where well, you know some some of the big moments and foreign part? Well, I think one of my favorite memories, obviously the normalization of relations with Vietnam, which told you which it was. I think the first Washington's first you know, sense of McCain the stage, man. You know it had every reason. Not not even if he didn't object to normalization not to be involved in it. You know, he was not treated particularly well when he was prison. Obviously, he was tortured, and, um But he thought it was in our America's best interests to get past the war, and he thought it was in our geopolitical interests to make a friend of not an ally out of Vietnam in Southeast Asia. We have similar Issues with the Chinese, you know, and um and so he worked very hard and till it took a lot of golf on the P A. W M I a question and I had to put up with some crazy stuff. But he was almost the architect that he and John Kerry were almost the architects of normalization plan which they ever the feeling that there was some guilt attached to his stress on getting on issues, you know. No. Hey, you really did. Really kept the war behind him. He didn't I don't think you felt any guilt about it all. He was a professional officer, the doing his duty, so no, But he did feel that he did have a strange affinity for the Vietnam Not a strange affinity and affinity for the Vietnamese people, not one. I think they necessarily acquired in prison, but he was a very Curious person and a very observant person, You know, so even the sort of the head political Condrey of the POW camps you know who ordered his torture, you know, and ordered the propaganda statement he was forced to make you know. Um, you know, you always remarked about this time The guy came in, and I think Christmas Eve or something dressed in a three piece suit with a diamond stickpin and talked about that He too had a nympho mention father, like like John had And maybe they had something in common and, you know machine. Yeah. You have mixed feelings about the guy, obviously, but that made an impression on him..
Serbia, Montenegro expel each other's ambassadors
"Neighboring countries expelling each other's ambassadors is not normally the prelude to anything good so montenegro. Booting out serbia's ambassador. On saturday with belgrade responding in kind raised alarm bells in the balkans which is the way of alarm bells in the balkans raised alarm bells elsewhere but serbia has now decided against declaring montenegro ambassador persona non grata amid much talk of goodwill between neighbors. So what is behind this spat and is serbia's man in pod. Grits still packing his bags. Well let's get the latest from our man in the balkans delaunay guy. Montenegro kicked this off by throwing out. Serbia's ambassador so let's start there. What had serbia's ambassador done to upset them. He said what they thought the provocative things about the notion of the montenigrin state. And he's like saying they sort of things and he said them once too often it would seem his most recent touch rent so this is a guy called vladimir bolshevik. Choose serbia's man. In montenegro he described this is the raw the flowery way that they not oppressive poverty. That the decision by montenegro authorities in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine to unify with serbia was a liberation and a free expression of people's will to unite with fraternal serbia Now the one thousand nine hundred union of montenegro with the what was then the kingdom of serbs croats and slovenes clue. There's no space for montenegro. In the name of that particular state Has not ever gone down. Well in history with a certain section of people montenegro Least of all those who say that we are an independent state became independent and twenty six and are larger neighbours. Should stop meddling in our as i mean. This is not terrifically. Diplomatic behavior from an ambassador. Was he going anywhere with this. Or was this the consequence of having perhaps over enjoyed one or two receptions. I couldn't possibly say on this. There's a lot of very undiplomatic behavior in this neighborhood. The those one diplomat in in he used to boast about spearheading a digital diplomacy initiative and this digital diplomacy initiative seem to entirely consist of insulting serbia on twitter. So that's that's the level of things. Here and keen. Listeners may have noted that in the past year relations between serbia and montenegro have been a little bit more tense than the normal in large part because of the montenegrin presidents decision to to launch an attack on the serbian orthodox church montenegro. He lived to regret this decision when his party. Then lost the parliamentary election in august. But this this rows being going on all year and the being little pokes and nichols and needles Going backwards and forwards between the two sides. Serbia as i read it has now currently given the montenigrin representative in belgrade. A reprieve at which point. I think we do need to give it up for the montenegrin ambassadors name. How can you refuse. A man called tarzan milosevic willing to in any religion be wrong. Any relation to any relation to either taza and milosevic is what i'm asking. I didn't think so. And this is not unusual. Balkan name by the way so. He's got very unusual parents. All these parents who thought that their son would go on to do unusual things which in some ways he has. I mean serving is montenegro. Ambassador to belgrade is something that wouldn't have been on their minds. Perhaps when taunton was A came into the world as some sixty years ago say but anyway He's got his reprieve. It would seem launch because of serbia's president alexandrovich There was a press conference in belgrade on sunday evening. At which prime minister. John boehner delivered. The word from the president's office said he decided the some things are more important than diplomatic protocol and he would extend the hand of fraternal friendship To montenegro which bearing on everything that's gone before was a little bit ironic. So is this actually going anywhere. This wanna are poised for a new era of rancor between serbia and montenegro or is this more one of your teacup the storms. There's actually something going on behind the scenes. Which is we're bound to have. A new government installed in montenegro. So i mentioned the election in august. We the government hasn't been installed yet. It's due to be installed tomorrow and this new government is fairly serbia friendly. It's it's a funny old coalition. The largest party of which is very friendly towards serbia and russia and they've accused the outgoing administration which is dominated by miller djukanovic. Even though he's the president and not the prime minister of stirring the pump basically they're saying the trying to increase divisions within montenegro society between ethnic serbs and montenegrins and with neighboring serbia before they got booted out of government formerly Tomorrow and i think that's quite a reasonable analysis.

So I've got a fourteen percent more WI fi before it dies and nuts. So it's ok, never. Okay. Joining to stop recording some reasons. Why that you need to tell me. Do we have anything private lives? Nothing. Right. Hey, look and fans. Welcome back. Welcome back by the way, whatever it is the beginning of this recording. I'm sure it's all going to be in the recording because you know what? There's nothing private between Doug and I, it's all about the fuck advanced love you guys in. We are completely transparent with you. I don't even. I can't even imagine what in my life would be so private that I cannot share it with the nice guys on business podcast. What would that be? Imagine anything so private that I couldn't share it with the three or four thousand people download every episode of this easy asked show. It's not like anybody ever held anything against me in really. I mean, never. I mean, I've, I've talked relationship stuff. I've talked health stuff. I've talked GMO things you and I have gotten in arguments. I've gotten in arguments with with ex wives. I've had my kids on the show. I mean, what? What else could possibly go wrong on this show? Well, having said that I'm going to spend the virtual meal. Yeah, I don't have the wheel because I'm not at home. Right? But I'm, I'm still in Connecticut. I know come for anybody that doesn't know anything about banking as listen to the Tuesday show. We talked about sensitively, so go back and listen. If you didn't listen, hang on. I'm looking through the topics because the tie what you just said about being transparent is one of your topics. And now I can't. I don't know on being transparent was one of the topics. I mean a happy to talk. About transparency but was topics. It was indirectly topic because it was something about your relationships. Where's that topic? Oh, yeah, yeah. Whitney. The topic was I wanted to my relationship, woes and successes. I wanted to share one men women, and that's exactly. Okay. Doug, go ahead please. It's actually actually so so JJ zan's. And created this other podcasts because struggle with tired of hearing, hearing me being the why. Why he knows bitch. Tired of it. So JJ and I while she had already had this show called, I spell the wrong actually put men, women and relationships as actually. But it is women men in relationships. Some. Sorry, I'm laughing because as you're saying that looking at the page in one note chain, you're making changes to Beijing. I wanna to make sure it's very clear what I did I corrected myself. So if you if you were curious exactly what has happened, speaking of total transparency, it's not that I don't wanna share exactly what has happened in my life, but Strickland is frankly, he's probably tired of hearing it for me and everybody that knows me because all they do is complain about how all I do is complain. So we're, we're talking about total transparency, right? Yeah, sure. Go ahead. I'm going to be totally transparent with. Okay, I am. I am far less tired of hearing about your relationship Bose. I don't want to say I find it interesting. Interesting makes them sound kind of trite and it's because your your relationship was more the trait. They're very important four before you share what you're about to share, though I wanna let you know that the next sentence that you say you're going to hurt my feelings. Well, maybe possible. Things more. What I'm totally fine hearing about your because I think any information about relationships, whether they're good better and different, I think is great information for people to hear and learn. I'm much. I'm not really tired of hearing about that. I am tired of hearing about how fucking corn is the worst on nude body in fucking GMO's in the chemicals and the all the fucking California should that you've adopted less two months. So hold up. Hold up. Hold up. It's interesting. You say that because when we had our production call just earlier tonight, I was explaining the trials and tribulations of trying to put my essential oils in my diffuser. Thank you. That's exactly piling on his exactly the kind of that. I am really fucking. That's the best that is the greatest thing. And then I held up a little a little jar of my Himalayan sea salt. I love this this entire experience here on the west coast. It's been so amazing. So. So. I'm sorry, did you owns now to calm myself? So I don't get upset to hear more about all of your California lifestyle, hey, strategy strikes. You'll you'll like this part though. I just made arrangements to have my Harley shipped out here so that my life will be will be coming slowly. The east coast will slowly be moving its way to the west coast.

I think there are a couple people that have actually taken her up on the on the whole whole coaching aspect of things and and it was really, she's coach MU couple times by the way, again, not interrupted a man robbed. Yes, I've had a couple of scotch. Gotcha. Homer. Anything much. Or so. JJ again, like all over the place. Now it's one o'clock in the morning. I'm here from all over. The place are fine. I love it. You're drunk. This is great. Title. Schoenbach joke. So I'm Jay, Jay, Jay Jane. I have done a couple of sessions in. She's amazing. I just have sue shit on. I haven't had a chance to get back with her, but she's amazing. So. Okay, go ahead. None of. So what I was going to say was that. So when when I'm able to chat with her on as the as the as the temporary co host or maybe the part time could not temporary that Jesus, that'll be horrible and temporary Colo's to be the part time. Co host of women. Men in relationships was great about it is we take actually this entire fucked up thing that has happened to me in my relationships in my an and where I might look at it on nice guys as a completely like, oh my God, my life is going down this horrible. You know this horrible path and look what's happened. You know, when I come on her show and we actually ended up having a conversation about it. My life begins to make much more sense. Maybe every maybe an and we discovered this when we were in Baltimore, just just a week or so ago. And and you know, I'm I'm sitting there in the chair and we're having we're having Bret or is sitting there in the booth. And we're having a breakfast with a buddy of mine. And I said, I don't even know where this this, this, this, this thought came, but I'm like, hey, maybe everything that has happened in my life up to this point, the divorces and you know the the people that have been mad at me and all this, the the exile in the stress and the all of the shit that has happened in my life. Maybe all of that. If I'm looking at this from a different filter, if I'm looking from this at a different angle in perspective, maybe this all happened for a reason that is positive to teach me something that I'm going to be able to take the next part of my life. And I'm like, I would never have been able to think those thoughts. I would always been. I would always been thinking, why the fuck did this all happen to me rather than this happened to me for a specific reason and it was an intended reason and it's a part of this this just this this path that I'm on, that's this is. Contract that I have made with myself. And when you look at it that way, it's like nothing in life ever happens for a reason poorly. It all happens for to teach you a lesson. So that's what we cover in women. Men relationships if you want to a slightly still a funny part of me, but a much more serious funny part of me. Listen to that that show because we do get into kind of deep with with relationships here. Here's where we just bash everything going on in my life on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and that is that is okay with me or the beginning of the show were hash you for the whole California lifestyle? Yes. GMO's in the corn is not instable. Okay. The comment that you just made about in hate? Maybe everything that has happened to me is actually happened for he said, yes, if that is part of the California lifestyle that support I agree with. I'm going to tell you. Is my bell. Bell. That is my philosophy, our percent, they're no such thing as stakes. There's no such thing as bad things that happen to you. And by the way, this big overall picture big picture. Yeah, could almost maybe be considered business advice if you want to consider business vice. Although we haven't given business advice on the guys. In a long time. So I don't wanna break that streak ship, but we do. It's just only three fifths of the week is business advice, the two-fifths of the week, known as Tuesdays and Thursdays, which is also one hundred percent of your time, which means that the only common element in the dysfunction of our Tuesdays and Thursdays is used stricklin. Realize that right despair dot com. Won't you realize that the only comment denominator in all of your dysfunctional relationships. I love that anyway. So back to I am one hundred percent of the belief in the philosophy, and I am so down with this. I am so aligned with this. That. Bad things don't happen. Okay. Mistakes don't happen and horrible things. Don't happen there to things that happened there, either successes or there are less when something bad happens. It's not like over. Just fucking horrible. And why the fuck did this happen to me new? It's trying to teach you something who knows what it is. And sometimes at the time it happens, it just not seem obvious. It doesn't seem like this could be productive. It doesn't seem like this could be something positive because it's something so horrible. You know what? Sometimes you just got to be patient go, you know what? Positives and I am a hundred percents on our that. I'm feeling there is a little bit of business advice in there somewhere. And now you've gone and spoiled it for everybody. Dammit pay for those of you who only listen to the Tuesday and Thursday show and completely Shum the month. Monday was your Friday because you don't want MRs vice. I'm sorry. I apologize. I didn't mean to infuse just a tiny bit of what might be considered business advice into the to say, while I got you on while I got you on a little bit of Iran tear just just talking in general, just as your as your. River, your verbally vomiting here. Can you explain it? I'm not. I don't wanna get into the politics of this. I just want to get into the understanding of where we stand with this. Do you know what's going on? Because I have not followed it at all. Other than through my CNN alerts.
