Larry Taunton Talks Voter Fraud
"Welcome back, talking to Larry Alex Staunton Larry. We've seen such unprecedented things. The voting fraud. I think because we didn't get the red wave, we might have been hoping for. I think it's a good thing because I think it is forcing more people to realize, wait a minute, this is genuinely rigged. No one believes John fetterman grunted his way to victory. Nobody believes that Carrie Lake lost. Nobody could really honestly believe that Joe Biden won. I mean, it doesn't make sense and you're looking around and you think like something rotten has entered our political life and the folks who don't like pro American figures, whether it's Trump or Carrie Lake or Doug master yano, that they will do literally anything to keep them out of power and that they've simply taken election fraud or whatever it is manipulation to a new level and if we the people don't wake up to this. If we don't go to bat against this stuff, it's over. We have no America. Yeah, well, let me just say something very, very quickly, a little anecdote your listeners might appreciate. What an impressive lady Carrie Lake is. I say that Georgia maloney, the new prime minister of Italy, the populist candidate is the Carrie Lake of Italy. I mean, Carrie Lake is just a powerhouse, but I was with you at Mar-a-Lago and we're sitting, I don't know if you remember this, but we're chatting in the lobby and you look over my shoulder and you say, hey, hey, there's the next governor of Arizona. And I turned and looked and it was Carrie Lake.
What Happened to Turn the Epic Red Wave Into 2020 2.0?
"Were focused on candidate quality and debates and arguments and who is going to secure the southern border and who's going to stop fentanyl, people like Katie Hobbs and John fetterman sat at home and to digital online fundraisers to secular godless, miserable, rich young professionals in Silicon Valley in New York that gave $2800 a piece gleefully to fund the takeover of America via act blue and the designer of it all was Marc Elias. When you have an entire system that is changing in front of your eyes and the Republican Party becomes the muscular class, carpenters, electricians, welders, plumbers, and police officers. It's harder to fund a political movement that way. The Democrat party has become the upper middle class, the party of accountants, the party of computer scientists, so they're able to raise money a lot easier, act blue, raised $1.8 billion when red raised $1 billion. And there's no reason anymore for candidates to campaign. Why do you have to debate? Why do you have to answer to voters? You don't. Now instead, you run this synthetic artificial construct.
Dinesh Reflects on the Financial Deficits of GOP Campaigns
"I'm continuing my discussion of JD Vance's article about the money difference between Republicans and Democrats and JD basically gives a lot of the credit or maybe the blame to the democratic group called act blue. Act blue is a nationwide fundraising operation that draws on small donors and individual donors. 21 million donors. They put money into all the key races. And this is how JD Vance has my opponent, Tim Ryan could run just nonstop ads about how much he quote agreed with Trump about what a kind of moderate he was and not went into either party. All of this is funded by this democratic machine. John fetterman, by the way, had the same machine in Pennsylvania. And mastery Ono just could just helplessly look on as these ads pummeled the airwaves radio TV and online and so on. So JD Vance goes on to point out that Republicans to raise money from small donors, but you know what? There are huge consultant and list building fees. And so what he's touching on here is that a lot of the GOP consultants are in the quote business of politics. They're really in it for themselves. And so what they do is they say, okay, I'll help you raise money, but out of every dollar, you know what? We'll keep 75 cents. You get 25 cents. I'm only giving you that as an example. But it illustrates the point that when a tiny portion of the dollar is trickles into the candidate that obviously creates very limited resources.
"john fetterman" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"And get them to the polls. After all, those who voted in 2018 but not 2016 helped hand Joe Biden a 2020 victory with 62% of those individuals choosing Joe Biden over Donald Trump. Some groups, like black women, historically have high levels of voter participation. Others, like non college educated men and white men, when they do turn out, have often done so for Republican candidates. In fact, just 38% of white men identified as Democrats in 2019. According to Pew Research Center, the Democratic Party has made some recent gains among men, though in 2020, Republicans gained some ground among Hispanic voters and women, such shifting allegiances are not new as generational voter realignments in the 1990s demonstrate. As the electorate is not fixed, political parties are constantly on the hunt for new groups to turn out or convert. People over the age of 50 can recall quite clearly that the current political alignment, particularly when it comes to regional voting patterns, looks quite a good deal different than it did in the 1960s. Going even farther back, the migration of white southerners from the party of Jackson and Jefferson to white slaveholders to the party of Lincoln was complex and multifaceted. But by the 1990s, white southerners were consistently voting for Republicans in both presidential and congressional elections. To attract more men, particularly white and Hispanic men back to the Democratic Party, we need to ensure a diversity among male candidates as well. It is clear that Democrats can't rely upon changes in the country's changing demographic profile to produce inevitable political majorities. Women and minority group members are multifaceted and varied in their political beliefs and are not the lock that the party once assumed. That said, Democrats must also appeal to men ranging from the Indiana coal miner to the Ohio college professor for lasting gains. They must seize the opportunity of their recent 2020 gains among men to appeal to many different types of male voters. Of course, there is an argument to be made that men especially white men already have plenty of representation and politics, and it is true politicians are overwhelmingly white and male, but American manhood is so much more than older, wealthy, and genteel, that is, of course, a legitimate type of masculinity, but men are also suburban fathers, union factory workers, and rural tradesmen, and they too deserve congressional representatives that understand their lives. Just 43,000 votes in key states stood between Joe Biden and a second Donald Trump presidency. Further, given the rise in legislation which further restricts voting rights, particularly for black voters, Democrats must convert existing voters or convince individuals who typically do not vote to come to the polls. White males represent an obvious target. The Democratic Party tends to pride itself on casting a wide net in terms of the demographics and interests of their constituency, but their male politicians in particular need to also be more inclusive. In order to continue moving forward, the party must diversify its appeal to men. Ensuring that voters feel like they can see themselves among the candidates is just one step in this process. That may mean seeking more candidates, like fetterman, even if they campaign in cargo shorts.

"The Democrats need more Jon fetterman's by Amanda Jane Miller and Edward of France. Miller is a Professor of sociology and director of faculty development at the university of Indianapolis. Her book with co author Sharon sasser, co habitation nation, gender, class, and the remaking of relationships, won the 2018 William J goode book award for family sociology. France is a Professor of history at the university of Indianapolis and a public voices fellow alumnus with the op-ed project. He is the author of the door of hope Republican presidents and the first southern strategy 1877 to 1933. John fetterman is once again in the public limelight having won the closely watched Pennsylvania Senate race against his opponent, doctor mehmed Oz. This win makes fetterman a Democrat. The first candidate of the election to flip a national Senate seat from red to blue. Fetterman has been cast by his campaign time and time again as a man of the people standing in stark contrast to his more elite Republican opponent. It is not surprising then that fetterman has captured the interest of a larger share of non college educated voters who typically turn out for Republicans, then democratic candidates in other states have. Part of fetterman's popularity has stemmed from his image, a rough and tumble all American man, fetterman, a former college football player, certainly looks the part standing 6 feet, 8 inches tall with a shaved head and hooded sweatshirt. He would appear to be at home among the steel mills of Pennsylvania, where he currently serves as lieutenant governor, but fetterman also holds a master's degree from Harvard University and has dedicated his life to public service. Although fetterman acknowledges his relatively privileged upbringing, his often unconventional approach is bolstered by his clear commitment to his constituents. After all, fetterman literally etched on his arm, the dates on which someone from Braddock, where he served as mayor, died by violence under his watch. While he may not have labored in the steel mills, his willingness to genuinely listen to and advocate for those who have stands out. He is, in fact, a bit of an unexpected surprise. And he may be a, but not the crucial Keystone on which the future of the Democratic Party rests. To ensure a strong future for the party, Democrats must expand their models of political manhood. As social scientists, we know that the ability to connect with a candidate is important, but so is being able to see yourself reflected among our politicians. While there is certainly a way to go, the party has taken strides to diversify itself for women, a record number of women serve in the 117th Congress. But as recent history shows us, Democrats have had a rocky relationship connecting with men. Since at least the 1830s, when the Whig Party formed in order to oppose the archetype masculine frontiersmen, Andrew Jackson, major American political parties have used symbols and code words to give the appearance of a masculine appeal that they believe will resonate with a broad voting populace. In 1840, for instance, the Whigs ran William Henry Harrison, a long retired, mostly unsuccessful aristocratic politician under a log cabin and hard cider campaign, while also appealing to his distant past when he fought indigenous forces in the battle of tippecanoe in 1811. Harrison became the first Whig elected president thereby also solidifying a trend in which that party selected former soldiers as their leading men. Whereas the Democrats can look deep into their past for masculine figures like Jackson in the more recent past, they have struggled
Mike Gallagher Apologizes for Mocking John Fetterman's Condition
"Made fun of him. And I poked fun at his physical condition and I really feel crappy about it because that's wrong. Like I said to you for weeks and weeks and months and months, everybody feels sorry for a guy who suffered a massive stroke. And all that put that he went through and his family went through. And today I got carried away and made some noises and stuff and kind of made fun of him. And that's absolutely wrong. I don't feel any less sorry for him today than I did prior to the election. It doesn't mean I'm in shock that a guy in his condition and especially with his radical ideology could get elected to the U.S. Senate, Pennsylvania voters are completely deranged who voted for him. But having said all of that, I should not make fun of him or make noises and pretend that he's Herman Munster and all of that. That's wrong. And that's not who I am, and I feel kind of I just got carried away. And I'm sorry. I really am. I'm sorry that I went there.
Katy Tur Wonders About a Future for John Fetterman
"But just when it can't get any crazier, you hear Katie tur say this guy, hey, the Senate is just a springboard to something bigger and better. Betterman as a nominee at some point for president. I know there's some variables, obviously. But I just, you know, what he did in the super red, deep red parts of Pennsylvania and the way that he ran ahead of Biden, as you were saying, ran ahead of Trump. I mean, it just makes you wonder about his future. His future. Makes you wonder about his future, his prod is presidential aspirations, what?
We Need New Republican Leadership
"Most pressing issue now is what to do about Republican leadership in the House of Representatives and the Senate and the RNC. And folks based on some information that's coming out. I can tell you that if we are going to have a shot at at really transforming the Republican Party and advancing a truly conservative agenda, an agenda that does not mean waving a white flag of surrender and handing over our majorities to the Democrats, we are going to have to have new leadership. Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnell, ronna mcdaniel. They got to go. They've got to go. And with all due respect, we have to make sure our elected leaders are not endorsing candidates because somebody at Fox News channel told them so. If you're looking at if you're looking at the Pennsylvania race right now and with John fetterman, who is the senator elect just remember that it was Sean Hannity, who told Donald Trump that Doctor Oz was the guy. That was that's on Hannity. But this is what happens when you select candidates based on name recognition only or based on celebrity instead of actual instead of actually having an opinion or having a center base where you know this is what this person believes.

"Gotta say, is we going to this Georgia runoff? I mean, again, I don't mean it to mock hershel walker, but clearly whatever his damage is, is permanent. I mean, he has clearly probably brain injury from football. Like, you know, CTE, whatever it is, but I mean, the fact that they would defend him as being perfectly qualified for the Senate while mocking John fetterman tells you everything you need to know about that party. And it's not just the fact that he's actually medically ignorant from whatever the cause, he's a guy that's been paying abortions or his girlfriends whose threatened one of his girlfriends with a knife. I mean, we're talking about a guy who's so far out of the mainstream and how he got more than 50 votes is amazing to me. And that's still something about the residual reality of extremists that are among us. And it's not stuff we're making up. He's spoken about his own mental illness, for instance. I mean, you're right. The fact that that would even be close, but I truly believe we're going to win that one. We're going to hold the Senate, but Doc, happy clappy day. Thanks so much.

Caller 'Shocked' John Fetterman Defeated Dr. Oz
"I'm shocked. That he won betterment. Was not that bad of a candidate. I don't know how strong of his Republican thinking was, but I didn't pay attention to ours until he got into the race and everything I heard him say was okay with me. But compared to fetterman, I can't believe that that man won this race. It's almost like I think somebody pulls some strings or something. He calls that to happen. I just can't believe those people that stupid and that state to vote for him. Preston, now to that point, this is a state that also elected a dead man to office, so I could understand why they would vote for someone who was quite frankly a walking vegetable. Well, it felt sorry for him, evidently, and I don't think that that seat is important. Look, here's Mike. Look, this was doomed to start Preston. Here you have a state that is a blue collar state, you've got a strong coal industry. You have the rust belt there. And the Republican nominee was a multi-billion air who lived had lived in New Jersey, moved to Pennsylvania just to run for the Senate, and he just never connected. He was a great TV doctor. Don't get me wrong, and I, you know, it's a great TV show, but I don't think he connected to the average voter in Pennsylvania.
Caller: How Could Anyone Support John Fetterman?
"Say, it's unbelievable to me again. You know, I couldn't believe mulroy, we went here to Memphis, prime example, 20, 25% of registered Republicans got off their buds and went and voted in the important election. Let me get in get the win. So I thought, okay, maybe we'll learn a list. So now let me not necessarily tend to say did okay. But look, I mean, and maybe there was something going on in Pennsylvania. But you know, if my dog ran against John fetterman, I would have to vote for my dog. I mean, there's no way, how could anybody with half a tenth of an IQ vote for federman. Number one, and Robin even though the stroke, his policy are exactly what killing this country right now, and he's even farther left than those policies. And Pennsylvania, fracking capital, and he's against it. They need lives to everybody in their faces like y'all are idiots. What did they just say, oh, okay. I guess we found the truth. He changed his mind. I mean, I don't even understand it. I just don't know, and I mean, there's obviously no time to panic, so to speak, but whatever we need to figure something out, I'm talking about blaming everybody. Trump, I'm a Trump. I'm a Trump fan. I don't worship him. I believe in his policy. And I believe in Rhonda santas. You know, I went to Florida during COVID. I'm telling you when I went down there. It was like I was literally in another country. You are a man if you wanted to. Mother tonight, you didn't have to wear a mask, restaurants were open all hours of the night. You could do whatever you wanted to. It was unbelievable. Literally, I didn't know what had happened. Did I fall into a portal or something? But I mean, we've got to figure something out. This is unbelievable. I mean, is there some of the Democrats? Is there a different price they pay at the gas bomb? Or it's a grocery store than what we pay? Bill,
Is Winning the Only Thing That Matters?
"A lot of and you know I had an interesting argument with not an argument, but a friendly disagreement with my pal Mark Davis. Because Mark keeps saying, I'd vote for a disembodied head if it was a Republican over any Democrat. While I get the spirit of that, I gently reminded him, well, you're saying that winning is the only thing that matters. If winning is the only thing that matters, you would wish that roe V wade wasn't overturned. Because roe V wade drove a lot of hysterical people to the polls. No question about it. I knew the day that roe V wade was announced. When the dob's decision was handed down, I knew that would hurt us politically. You know how many, you know how many babies have been brought into the world since that decision? You know how many lives that have been saved? The mainstream media has pointed out thousands. So let me ask you a question. Would you trade that? Would you trade that away? Would you say roe V wade shouldn't have been overturned so that we could win the big have the big red wave? And when I pointed out to mark, mark said, ah, I see what you mean. He almost said, I see what you did there. Because what I did there is point out you wouldn't just vote for a disembodied head. No, no self respecting person would vote and say winning is the only thing that matters when human life is on the line. How any self respecting person could vote for John fetterman? It's something I'll never understand. I guess they use the Mark Davis rule of voting for a disembodied head, because frankly, obviously a lot of people in Pennsylvania practically did.

Voters Report Problems With Voting Machines
"I know there's a lot of adversity that have gone on. It's basically in the state of Arizona. Some of the polling places, the machines are not working, some of them are completely now some of them only responded to 9% of the vote, do not give up. You have to stay in line. You have to weather the storm. And I told some of y'all to make sure you vote early, make sure if you can't vote early and you can't go on election day, vote by mail. Don't get in the rucks of listening to the Republican talking points. You better get your vote out there because you end up today and stuff happens in adversity happening. It's your only chance to vote. And you walk away from the poll and you go sit at the house, you have just screwed not only yourself but the rest of America. But if you're out there right now, you're thinking about voting, you haven't voted. You haven't voted yet. The only way to the poll make sure you vote, endure to the end, our country is depending on you to vote for what's right. 1300 people that listen to me. And most people are conservative, and we have 18% out of 1300 people say that they did not vote today. I'm encouraging you to do what's right. Shout out to everybody that's given super chats on the YouTube channel. If somebody said something that I can't repeat on the radio or I can't repeat on the YouTube channel in the comments section. You know, I think that there is adversities. It don't make no mistake about it. There are adversities that are coming up at the poll places in the day of voting. You have to endure battle to the end.
How Could You Not Vote?
"I did a poll on the YouTube channel. You know, I got 2 million people on YouTube. I got about 2.7 million. I mean, 2700 people watching live. I haven't gone live in a way. I normally it's like thousands of billion, 30,000, 40,000 people watching live. If it's a big major incident. But we did a poll about voting in like 27% of people said they didn't vote today. And I'm hoping that they're saying it in vote today because they voted early. If we have 27% of people saying that they did not vote in this election. Then we should have 27% of people not complaining about the election. Because you can not complain if you're not voting. You can not complain. Don't waste my time, don't waste your time if you're not going to go to the polls and vote. Don't talk about Biden, don't talk about Trump. Keep your political information to yourself because nobody want to hear it because you're not a participating member of society. And you complain about something in which you don't plan to fix.
Election Updates for Kentucky and New Hampshire
"We're just waiting for some of these things to come in. I'm here for you. I'm here to try to monitor what's going on. We're in the gubernatorial race. If you look at the map right here, scroll over to the state there that has a gubernatorial remarks to it. It's just right now in New Hampshire right now, oh, it's only four votes in. So it's insignificant. They only have four votes in the Republican. I can't even see his name. What is it? That's a weird name. Chris Newton who is winning. Let's go up to some of the other races and look at them. Let's go up there and forget the house. Let's go to the Senate. Let's see anything that happened in Kentucky. So we got Kentucky results here and it looked like Rand Paul is ahead. There's only been about 4700 votes counted Rand Paul has 76% of the votes over Charles Booker in Kentucky. They got a long way to go in Kentucky. He's not even close. But right now we have, who is Rand Paul, we have Rand Paul winning in Kentucky. Let's go to New Hampshire up there at the top and see what New Hampshire got. A New Hampshire only 5 votes in right now. New Hampshire got 5 votes and all the votes have gone to what is that? Maggie Hassan. Hassan, Maggie Hassan, that's who it is in this all the Democrat. So not enough to give any feedback there.
When Do the Polls Close?
"I'll just tell you right now just in case you're thinking about voting and you haven't started yet, the polls are going to close and this is the polls that are closing on your time zone. So at 6 p.m., which is already occurred, we see Indiana, pose closing, and also Kentucky's poll closing. At 7 p.m., Arizona time. We'll see or at least your time based on the state that I say.

Why Exercising Your Right to Vote Matters
"I've been I've been speaking about how we need to diversify the way we vote. We can not just only wait and rely on election day. I told you all that, then we look out here in Maricopa County and we have some voting places that the machines are not working properly. And people are literally having to wait hours for them to rectify the situation. And some people are walking away from the polls. Now, when this happens on voting day and you were not prepared and you're not ready to endure and you walk away with your only chance to vote, then there is a problem. However, my focus, my mission is to convey to you that we will overcome any adversity that goes on today. Because it's up to us to change the trajectory of this election and force the vote read all the way down about it if you ask me. That's the way I voted. That's the way I believe you should vote. So if you're in a state that the polls have not closed, do not be discouraged. Take your butt to the polls and make sure you cast your vote. Why, mister Tatum, why do I need to vote because people have died? So that you can have a right to be able to participate in this constitutional republic and be able to see a future that is acceptable, profitable for your children. That's the reason why you vote. Not because it's cute, not because you get the little sticker, which I have my sticker in the car. Not because you get these stickers and all this other stuff. It's because you have the right God gave it to us. We need to take advantage of it. And I'm just encouraging all of you who probably have not voted yet or you're waiting in line. You're watching beat Tatum while you're waiting in line just know that you have to endure, stand in line, hold the line because I believe it is our time to shine.
Democrats' Last-Minute Midterm Election Operations
"I'm noticing some kind of last minute operations being deployed in various different places. And as I think about them, they're very telling about these races themselves and about the overall fate of the midterm election. So here we see that John fetterman's campaign is suing the state of Pennsylvania to have mail ballots with no date. Or the incorrect date be counted. So we're talking here about improperly filled out ballots. And I guess what fetterman is thinking is, listen, I'm in trouble. The latest polls show things very close to being tied, but usually Oz a little bit ahead. I'm gonna need. I may not even have mules this election. I may need these kind of questionable ballots that don't comply. By the way, with the rules. And the state's law says this is what a ballot needs in order for it to be considered a valid ballot, and the election guidance even spells out that ballots don't fit this criteria won't be counted. But fetterman thinks, because he knows that the courts and Pennsylvania are left wing, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania is left wing. He's hoping that he can kind of find a way. Now there was a recent court decision that said, listen, you can't count these ballots, but I think federman is thinking I'll try to sneak my way around it and of course I've got cooperative officials why because the Secretary of State and the election establishment in Pennsylvania is in fetterman's camp.

Well, I have been watching this and covering this stuff for more than a half a century, and I've never seen anything like that performance by fetterman last night. I'm hearing some commentary and his defense that says, look, you know, he's just going to be elected to the Senate and the only thing that matters in the Senate is whether you consider the Senate floor and vote I, yay or nay. But anybody who's ever covered the place knows there's a lot more to it than that. You have to be able to debate on the Senate floor to venture points to defend them. The same is true if you're called upon to offer amendments that you have an amendment to a bill that's very important to your constituents. You've got to be able to make the case for it in committee. You got to build a defendant. You got to do the same thing on the Senate floor. You have to be able to engage your colleagues outside the Senate chambers and outside the hallways of the outside in the hallways and in their offices to round up support for what you're doing. All of those things are things that John fetterman, based on what we saw last night is not now capable of doing. It's pretty striking. Beyond striking, okay? Now, if that wasn't bad enough, how about leftists and people so desperate and afraid that there's going to be a big red wave in 12 days? That they went into overdrive, attacking Doctor Oz, who again, if you watch the debate, was an absolute gentleman was gracious, not one time did he mock or denigrate fetterman's clearly impaired condition,

"Here's a little Salem news channel Montage of the shocking moments in the John fetterman, Doctor Oz debate in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania night before last. Hi, good night, everybody. He has never met an ear, an oil company that he doesn't swipe right about. It's about supporting and helping young earners. Young young students, to give them a break, I believe that supporting I do support fracking and all right, I support fracking and I stand and I do support fracking. I believe China is not our friend and I believe that we can't be able to push back. Our next star poll shows 51% of Pennsylvania voters disapprove of the president's job performance. You have publicly supported many of his policy positions. Are there any that you disagree with 30 seconds? No, I just believe he needs to do more about supporting and fighting about inflation, going through this kind of emotional schools, able to create a career to Wayne reach a lot of high salary and supporting reduce those costs are critical to.

I love the Walmart greeters. They're some of the nicest people in the world. And that is not an easy job. Fetterman says that he was asked about LGBTQ education being mandatory. He's all for it. He's all for pornography in schools. Let it be loudly communicated to the people of America, fetterman would have child, have gay pornography in our schools, play cut 86. Be supportive of legislation that makes it mandatory for LGBTQ education or our schools for history, literature, science, and so on. I'm for as many perspectives and letting everybody be included in because we're all part of America and we all have history and that should be a part of American history because you are a part of America and these communities. And while he's wearing a gay sombrero or something like that what on earth is that all about? I don't look at some of these clips for the show and I got Chris Cuomo on the screen and I got some sort of like LGBT vibe going like what on earth is going on here? Another superstar you gotta keep your eyes on tutor Dixon against Gretchen Whitmer, the wicked witch of Michigan, a legitimately despicably evil person who locked down the people of Michigan and schools and then lied about it last evening. She's like, oh, schools are only close for three months. That's a lie Ann Arbor was closed all the way up until early this year. Gretchen Whitmer is a liar and tutor Dixon is a fabulously articulate candidate play cut 98. If you have four years to try to fix education in this state, why is it not where you would want it to go at least four years ago where you said you wanted to go? We've also had some historic challenges over the last few years. I think to put it lightly. You know, miss lis Dixon says that I kept students out longer than any other state. That's just not true. I worked closely with my Republican and democratic governors. And kids were out for three months. Kids were not out for three months. They were out for years and Gretchen Whitmer is lying about it and tutor Dickson is running a very strong campaign. I'm telling you, the people of Michigan are ready for a change. Detroit was out of school almost all of 2020, all of 2021, and there is so much Gretchen Whitmer hatred in the state of Michigan, and there should be. And they say, oh, well, the suburban moms really like Gretchen Whitmer. I want to meet one of these people. Who are you? How delusional and desperate and broken muster life be? To like Gretchen Whitmer. She's an awful tyrant, a white female liberal tyrant. And I know there's this whole new kind of demographic of college educated wine moms that live in the suburbs that live vicariously through MSNBC and their child's TikTok career, I don't understand. That's like a really kind of new political demo. Honestly, the left can have them. I will take Hispanics and blacks and working people and muscular class and I know that all moms aren't that way. Obviously because the parents parties in our direction, but there's this hyper aggressive new demographic of like suburban women that will never entertain voting for Republican. And obviously there's the cat people, which are the childless women that have college degrees, a nice corporate career, but no children. Typically very unhappy people.

We need to be talking about all of these other crimes, but instead Kathy hochul's too busy, patting herself on the back job well done. No, actually right now there should be a special session. The state legislature should come back and they should overhaul cashless bail and these other pro criminal laws with zero tolerance, but they're saying elect me.

Someone says, talk about mastriano, fetterman is toast, and that is a fact, so stop with fetterman. I don't know about that, but I take this point, I take this point well. If Shapiro with the help of McConnell wins the gubernatorial race and not mastriano, Pennsylvania become Minnesota Oregon, Washington, Colorado. We had Doug mastriano on the program quite a lot. We're having him on again tomorrow. So we're a 100% behind mastriano. But we can't forget the fetterman issue too. We got to remember both. We're doing both. Someone says here, Charlie, Lee zeldin did an outstanding job. Kathy hochul just wanted to talk about gun control. We have laws on the books in New York that are not being enforced. Yeah, no kidding. Joy behar says the Republican Party is running a bunch of ads showing fetterman, you know, stumbling on things because of the stroke. It's just so un empathetic to the guy, you know? That sounds right. Yeah, yeah, yeah, we have to be sympathetic to the person that does not have the basic requirements or prerequisites to be a United States senator. It's extraordinary. Let's play this cut here. 85 of John fetterman repeatedly advocating for releasing one third of inmates. This is what you'll get if he becomes a U.S. senator, ply cut 85. We could release a third of our inmates and not make anyone less safe. You could reduce Pennsylvania's prison population by one third and not make anyone less safe. He said something remarkable that I agree with. He said, we could reduce our prison population by a third and not make anyone less safe. If we could reduce our prison population, we could return these individuals back to their families back to their communities and everyone is safe or for better. Fetterman was asked if he could make a wish what would it be in fetterman said he would end life without parole for murderers. Of all the things to wish for, end of world hunger, cancer to be abolished, no more childhood suffering or death, fetterman was asked if a magic Genie came from above and said, sir, you have one wish. What would it like to be? An end of suffering an end of war and end of plague and into famine. No, no, no, no. John fetterman says my one wish would be and life without parole for murderers. I don't know what the make a wish foundation would make of that one..

"You got to draw the line. And by the way, you also got a monster on elected as well. Let's play cut 56 just to set the tone. What qualifies you to be a U.S. senator, you have 60 seconds. Hi, good night, everybody. I'm running to serve Pennsylvania. He's running to use Pennsylvania. Yeah, maybe he said he meant to say good evening. I understand that talking is hard for him right now. But then it's not just the fact that he has difficulty talking and answering questions. It's that when he was presented with some very serious questions about the Pennsylvania economy, we were not able to understand what his position is at all. So explain this to me. We're going to play 53 in a second. What is John fetterman believe with fracking? We know he said before he wants to get rid of fracking. Now, if you live in Pennsylvania and you say, I don't like Oz on this issue. I don't like Oz on this issue. The fact that Oz wants to expand fracking, that alone should be just enough to support him. The Marcellus shale is a gift from the lord. It should be explored. It should be used, that energy should be utilized and fetterman wants to keep it all on the ground. I think, at least that's what he said before, fetterman didn't exactly clear this up. Play cut 53. You're saying tonight that you support fracking that you've always supported fracking. But there is that 2018 interview that you said quote, I don't support fracking at all. So how do you square the two? Oh. I do support fracking. And I don't, I support fracking, and I stand and I do support fracking. What? What was that exactly? This guy wants to be a U.S. senator. There's somebody right now that is working in the oil and natural gas industry in Pennsylvania that is wondering if the new U.S. senator is going to vote to put him out of business. And that's the answer that we get. And the media is, of course, covering from, they say, oh, well, you know, it really doesn't matter how well you can talk. It really matters, you know, how your, how your views are. Well, what are your views exactly? If you can't tell us what your views are. Play cut 81 news nation on fetterman's performance at the debate, play cut 81. John fetterman throughout the hour seemed to lose steam in his answers became more incoherent the longer the debate went on. Lose steam. I know him. That's Leland. I think that's Leland, isn't it? You used to work at Fox. Lose steam at least he said more incoherent. There was nothing he said that was coherent. And now the new, the media is now saying, oh, to Don Junior and people like myself, you're ableist. For attacking fetterman. Now, if you don't know what ableist is, it's their equivalent of being, you know how they have racist misogynist colonialists, homophobic, all that stuff. Ableist is that if you do not have your against people in wheelchairs or you're against all this stuff just because you're able to talk correctly and you're able to walk around that you shouldn't be ableist against others. Look, if there's any, if there's ever a time to be ableist, it's when you're trying to elect a U.S. senator. I will totally defend ableism when it comes to, I don't know, a vote of a hundred for the future of the American constitutional republic. It's called standards. By the way, it's just applying the same fake framework of racism everywhere applying it to all disabilities. Here's the thing. When you have a pursuit of excellence or the defense of something beautiful like America, I'm going to defend saying like, you're not, I'm sorry, you seem like a nice person, even though he's not, he's a thug, and he's a bad person, but you got to be this tall to get on the ride..

We are in the final push now. We are 13 days away. 13 days away. And all of a sudden, the battlefield has expanded. As we mentioned yesterday on our program, the turtle, Mitch McConnell, has decided to pull all money out of New Hampshire, and now he just said, oh, just kidding, now I'm going to put more money than New Hampshire. Who's making these decisions? I mean, New Hampshire, they said, oh, it's a waste of time. Now Don baldick is in the margin of error of Hassan. Adam laxalt is up in Nevada. Blake master striking distance Arizona Blake masters also abandoned by Mitch McConnell because Mitch McConnell, of course, has to go support Lisa Murkowski, the Trump impeachment indictment voting senator from Alaska. So we're going to go through all of this, but the one that we are going to lead with today. The story we're going to lead with is fetterman and Oz. We got to talk about this debate. It's become a national spectacle, fetterman, who is leading by double digits over the summer. Who looked like he was comfortably going to become the next senator from Pennsylvania. Is now no longer the favored candidate. Oz has ran a very good campaign. At a very good debate last night, Oz put fetterman on defense and quite honestly, it was very hard to watch as far as fetterman's ability to communicate and to make coherent sentences. But beyond his ability to not be able to speak correctly, there is a not just radical, but America game changing philosophy. That fetterman would bring to the table, admitting he would get rid of the filibuster, admitting he would, I'm not really sure what it stands on fracking is. Maybe you can hear the tape and tell me. But for every pet patriot out there in Pennsylvania, I hope you're watching. If you know someone in Pennsylvania, if you're in Pennsylvania, we are going to dedicate the first part of our program all to this debate. And I need you to help us get the word out. If you live in Pennsylvania, we need you to tell every friend every family member. In fact, I'd be interested what a Democrat and Pennsylvania thinks is the compelling argument to vote for fetterman. I would just love to hear that. We need every single Pennsylvania patriot engaged today and to spread the word we can not allow John fetterman to become a U.S. senator..

"Well, of course, that's not going to stop Democrats from trying to push John fetterman over the line. Federman's campaign spokesperson last night tried to hype up the crowd at a post debate rally. It didn't go amazing. All of us have been knocked down, but got back up. Well, Doctor Oz made he's going to fight for good corporations for a reference off. He's going to fight for the base pharmaceuticals who represent us on and the oil companies who are jacking up prices. I think the people of Pennsylvania saw a legal guide recovery in public quite some time and for a guy who was just in the hospital months ago. He took it back to his feet. And in the background, ABC is showing the bachelor. So things are going amazing. For the fetterman campaign, they're big talking point coming away from the debate, aside from your mean if you notice that there's something wrong with John fetterman, is Doctor Oz suggested that abortion law should be made locally. The headline they're saying is that Doctor Oz said that abortions should be decided between local politicians doctors and women, as opposed to between doctors and women. Here's what Doctor Oz actually said. This is a direct transcript quote. There should not be involvement from the federal government and how states decide their abortion decisions. As a physician, I've been in the room when there's some difficult conversations happening. I don't want the federal government involved with that at all. I want women, doctors, local political leaders, letting the democracy that's always allowed our nation to thrive to put the best ideas forward, so states can decide for themselves. I'm not going to support federal rules that block the ability of states to do what they wish. The abortion decision should be left up to the states. If that is a wildly uncontroversial statement from Doctor Oz, they're trying to spin that because they got nothing else to spend. When you got nothing else to spend, just make up what your opponent is saying, suggesting that you want the local mayor in the room while a doctor and woman figure out how to do an abortion or something. But bottom line here is that fetterman, if he is elected in the aftermath of that, you want to talk about polarized American politics. If John federman ends up in the Senate after that performance, it will say something about the nature of politics in the United States, namely that people are so polarized. They're willing to elect people who are not fully functional to positions of high power, simply because they are not the other guy. One quick note here, John fetterman actually tried to blame the closed captioning system for his debate failure last night. That was not the problem. The problem was he couldn't process language, and he couldn't speak out of his face. Hey, this is actually forced. Fetterman's criticism of the closed captioning system forced the closed captioning system to put out a statement quote, both candidates agreed to the technical setup for the closed captioning process weeks ago, which was implemented at the request of the federman campaign, both candidates were offered the same opportunity for two full rehearsals with the same equipment used in tonight's debate. Mister federman chose to do only one. In fact, Nexstar's production team went to extraordinary lengths to ensure the effectiveness of the closed captioning process and to accommodate several last minute requests of the federman campaign. The closed captioning process functioned as expected during rehearsal and again during tonight's debate, we regret that mister fetterman and his campaign feel otherwise. When you are relegated to blaming the closed captioning system, you have a massive problem on your hands. Okay, meanwhile, another race that has suddenly popped up onto the national radar is New York gubernatorial race. So Lee zeldin, who is a congressman from New York. They're fairly conservative, moderate to conservative Republican in New York. He's running against Kathy hochul, who of course inherited her office as she has done with virtually all of her other high offices because some man couldn't keep his pants up. So Kathy hochul has not done a good job as New York governor, there is nothing to suggest that she should retain. That's it. Lee zeldin really went at her aggressively last night that race is surprisingly close. And it is hard to forget the fact in this context that the New Jersey race that was nearly upset. By a Republican, had about 11 to 13 point gap. This New York race is closing and it's closing fairly quickly right here. And you look at these polls and you have a poll just a week ago from Siena that had hookup loving. And then you had a poll like days later from quinnipiac that had open up four. And the polls are a little bit all over the place, but you can see the trend is to close the gap. And back in August, total had a 15 point lead on zeldin. Today, hoku has about a 6 point lead on selden in the real court politics polling average. The momentum is clearly in Zelda's corner, and he really hurt her last night. So Zelda opened by saying, there's a reason people are leaving this state, and it's because of bad democratic governance. My opponent still can't finish this sentence, so you can't expect her to ever fix it. But New York leads the entire nation in population loss because. She actually got asked this question by the media a few weeks ago and she was at Binghamton airport, probably love to have a redo because she messed up that time. For me, you asked me, why does New York lead the entire nation population loss? Because their wallets, their safety, their freedom and their quality of their kids education under attack. So they're hitting their breaking point. They're looking at other states like the Carolinas, Tennessee, Texas, Florida, and elsewhere. And they feel like their money will go further, they'll feel safer and they'll live life freer. State is at a crossroads. We're at a crossroads in 1994 when New York elected George pataki, and we're at a crossroads right now. But as far as what happens with Kathy hochul in one party rule for four more years, outsized power of self described socialists, we need balance and common sense restored to Albany. Okay, and that sort of moderate republicanism has one in New York as he points out. George pataki was governor of the state for a very, very long time. Is heldon said that he is running to take back the streets as well at the crime issue in New York is out of control. And of course, he is correct. Now Kathy hochul supports castle's bell as soon as he got implemented, she was out there bragging about it. She chose the champion of the defund the police movement and the architect of castle spell Brian Benjamin. Yeah, that guy who got arrested and had to resign. That was her first big decision to make him the lieutenant governor. We need to repeal castle's bell. We need to repeal the halt act. Amanda raised the age unless there's more. We need to

"Well, Democrats midterm prospects are looking grimmer and grimmer as the days go by. We already knew that has been a 50 50 shot that Republicans were going to retake the Senate. But governors races all over the country look like they're starting to swing in the direction of Republicans. And this is because Democrats have nothing to run on. Remember, that over the past several years, Democrats shut down their states, Democrats shut down their schools, Democrats created green passes for people who are vaccinated and discriminated against people who are not vaccinated all on the basis that the unvaccinated were spreading the disease in a way that the vaccinated were not. All that was, of course, predicated on very, very faulty or nonexistent data. And what we saw last night in a series of debates across the country is the fact that Democrats have no defense for their own government. You're seeing it in the polling data today. If you look at the polls all across the country, what you are seeing is that Republicans are basically now in striking distance in every major state. If you look at the polls in the Senate, for example, right now, according to the real equipped politics polling average, Pennsylvania is dead heat. That is before we get to the debate between John federman and metadata, which was just one of the sad things I've ever seen in my entire life because John fetterman is clearly not well, is clearly not healed from his stroke. His family, his campaign decided to put him on the campaign trail for some God knows why reason and I would imagine that can't be good for your healing process because this did not look like a well person on the stage last night, as we'll show you in just one second. In New Hampshire, Maggie Hassan is now running about a three point race against Don baldock, which means that the national Republican senatorial committee is now pouring money back into New Hampshire. They think that that's it is in striking distance. In the Senate, you have North Carolina. Bud is running away with that race in Nevada, animal axel is widely expected to win his race in Nevada. In Arizona, Mark Kelly and Blake masters are now running a dead heat in Georgia. Raphael Warnock is now falling behind Herschel Walker as this race closes. And you would expect, by the way, then both Arizona and Georgia, the strength of the Republican at the top of the ticket on the governor's side is going to help drag those editorial candidates across the finish line. People are going to go into the polls and they are going to see that they're going to vote for Brian Kemp and Georgia, for example, and Rafael Warnock's unbalanced that could vote against him while they're there, same thing is going to happen in Arizona if Kerry Lake is doing well, which she appears to be doing over there. JD Vance looks like he's finally pulling away in Ohio, Ron Johnson, who's widely expected to lose his race at the beginning of this particular cycle in Wisconsin is now pulling away. And Marco Rubio, who is expected to be running a competitive race with Val demings just a few months ago, is now pulling away from Val demings in Florida. So what does that mean? I mean, if Republicans were too sweet, which is a possibility because in politics, when there is a wave, the wave tends to move in one direction. It tends to overwhelm everything. If there is a Republican red wave, you could see a Republican pickup of a wide variety of states. You can see Republicans pick up three, four, 5 seats in the Senate. When you move over to the house, the real club politics polling average right now says that their average projection is Republicans picking up 29 seats. As their average projection, that is with them assuming a generic ballad advantage for Republicans about three points. I don't think it's three points. And to be 5 to 7 points. And if that happens, Republicans could be picking up on the order of 40 seats in the House, which would have been a historically large majority in the House. And the governor's races, there are too many races that are just dead heats for Democrats to sleep on this thing. RealClearPolitics is currently projecting at least three Republican gubernatorial pickups. Races that were supposed to be competitive. Races like Georgia, Brian Kemp is running away with that race against the vaunted and sainted Stacey Abrams. Texas, you remember that there was a brief moment in time where it was finally going to take down Greg Abbott. It turns out that Abbott is now winning that race by almost ten points. Desantis and Florida is winning his race against Charlie Crist by ten points in the real car politics polling average. And that's not even getting to the super competitive states. The super competitive states, Wisconsin, dead heat. Minnesota is a two and a half point race. Kerry Lake has a slight advantage over in Arizona. Again, she was widely expected by the media to fall apart. Against Katie Hobbs, she has two advantages. One, she's good on TV and two. Katie Hobbs is the actual physical embodiment of the color gray. It's like they took the color gray and they somehow managed to condense it into human form and Katie Hobbs is that candidate. The latest polls have Lake up variously by three or hops up by one, but it appears that Republicans have the momentum in that particular race. Again, governors races in Nevada. It looks like lombardo is going to win that race. That's the Republican in Nevada. So lax suddenly Nevada goes from purple to red, New Mexico is shockingly a possible win for Republicans. That race according to the real composites polling average is now three and a half points. People aren't even pulling that race, really, because that was widely expected to be a hold for Lou Ann Grisham. Oregon, the Republican looks like the Republican is up in the Oregon, gubernatorial race, which is a shocker, like every single poll that has been taken. Currently has drazen winning that race.

"Is our producer. The top stories we're following for you tonight. Campaign 2022 will end up. Democrat John fetterman and Republican mehmet Oz were on the debate stage tonight in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The two are locked in a fierce contest for a U.S. Senate seat from Pennsylvania, a race which could decide control of the chamber and the future of president Joe Biden's agenda. During the debate hosted by W H TM in Harrisburg, Oz accused fetterman of being soft on crime during his time as mayor of Braddock. Police from Braddock, the small town he represented endorsed me. They supported me because what he's saying is not true. Violent skyrocketed in Braddock. I mean, the town wasn't in a good shape when John got there. It got worse when he was there. People kept leaving. Meanwhile, fetterman defended his record on crime and fired back at Oz. All he's done is just put a plan up on his website in the last 24 hours. He has no experience. He has never made any attempt to try to address crime during his entire career, except showing up for photo ops here in Philadelphia. Much of the focus on the debate was on fetterman who has spent the past several months fending off an escalating series of attacks from Oz about his health and fitness for office after he suffered a stroke in May, fetterman insists he is prepared for the demands of the Senate. He used closed captioning during the debate to help him process the words that he hears. And a new poll indicates that race is tighter than ever. WTO's Mitchell Miller has details from Capitol Hill. Polls suggest Republican doctor mehmet Oz has been gaining on democratic lieutenant governor John fetterman. And a new CBS poll has the two candidates only two percentage points apart with fetterman leading 51 49. Veterans campaign has sought to downplay expectations for the debate, while Oz has been pushing for this debate for a long time. Oz has run an ad seeking out more moderate Republicans in the suburbs, while fetterman is getting support in an ad from former president Barack Obama. Extremism on both sides makes

"I really can't. You got to give him credit. Tip the hat at being honest that a 9 month old baby should be murdered in the womb or can be because that's what your candidate for senator in Pennsylvania believes. Boy, I can't wait to get to Philadelphia to tackle this one tomorrow. And I can't wait to tell you about our experience last night in Orlando. I can't wait to preview tonight's experience in Atlanta. We're on the battleground talkers tour and I'm having just an incredibly exhilarating time sharing with many listeners all over the country in these battleground states, the concern we all have as Americans over the direction of the country, the future of the country, and there's a guy who wants to be senator, the man who needs a closed captioning, listening device in order to comprehend human words, admitting on camera that he does not want any restrictions on abortion in America. Now, let's just try to give him the benefit of the doubt. Let's just try to say he didn't comprehend the question, because that's the only way out. I'm not going to argue abortion with you here on a Wednesday or Tuesday, whatever it is. If it's Tuesday, we must be in Atlanta, right? This whirlwind tour and it's so fun, the Republicans are way up in the power rankings for 2022 in the midterm election. They're calling it a dead heat in the U.S. Senate, we shall see, I like our chances very, very much. I want you to, I will spend two minutes on this, but we got to play it. Here is John fetterman being asked in a rare one on one conversation without the listening device without the closed captioning system that apparently he needed with NBC, his position on late term abortion. You know what late term abortion is, right? Woman 6, 7, 8, 9 months pregnant? Besides, she doesn't want to keep that baby. That baby is a human being in the womb, an innocent life worthy of protection. Here's what this would be U.S. senator told a reporter yesterday regarding the issue of late term abortion. Do you support any restrictions on abortion? I don't. I've always believed in the third trimester. I believe that choice is between a woman, her doctor and a God if she praised the one. You look up a picture of an unborn baby in the third trimester. Even in the third trimester, now again, kudos to the reporter for holding his feet to the fire. And you got to acknowledge even when evil is transparent, evil is as evil does, this guy, this wicked position that a baby in the womb during the third trimester can be aborted..

"Listen to NBC News correspondent dasha burns yesterday who was tasked with the very challenging process of interviewing somebody who is right now the leading candidate to win senator in Pennsylvania. Listen to what dasha burns said about their ill fated interview with John fetterman. We had a monitor set up so that he could read my questions because he still has lingering auditory processing issues as a result of the stroke, which means he has a hard time understanding what he's hearing. Now once he reads the question, he's able to understand. You'll hear he also still has some problems, some challenges with speech. And I'll say Katie that Justin some of the small talk prior to the interview before the closed captioning was up and running, it did seem that he had a hard time understanding our conversation and heard there. The auditory processing challenges this speech challenges. I've spoken with stroke experts. They say folks can fully recover from that. But the caveat that every expert gives is that they can't fully assess a patient without details on their health records without that information that the campaign has yet to disclose. We've asked multiple times for medical records. We've asked for interviews with someone from his medical team. Those requests have so far been denied to NBC News and other outlets that have requested this. Now, again, auditory processing, that's a polite way of saying somebody is in comprehending words.

"More you learn about John fetterman, his health issues aside of which we will not trivialize or make fun of, the more you realize that this guy is as if a younger Jeff Bridges or John Goodman were to just kind of pop out of Hollywood, parachute into rural Pennsylvania, become a mayor of a very small city, not even do your mayoral duties there, act as if you're some sort of working class blue collar guy, even though you went to Harvard and were supported by your parents financially into your mid 40s. And then have the tattoos and the hoodie and the shorts and have this entire aesthetic that you're a man of the Pennsylvania people. Now, I'll be very honest. I fell for it. I didn't fall for it as if I was like some sort of fetterman fan. But a couple months ago when I saw Oz running against federman, I went to fetterman's website and I was doing a couple things at once. I said, oh, wow, you know, he looks like a steel worker. It can be a tough Democrat to fight. Okay. And obviously, you know, kind of time has passed and things have come out. He's a total fraud. He's a worked on a steel mill. He's not a Carpenter. He's not a welder. He's not a truck driver. He looks like one. It is an aesthetic hoodwink operation, where if we look like it and we wear the hoodie and we wear the shorts and you have the kind of tattoos and you have shave your head with the long beard, you can kind of fool people as if you're one of them. This is a big test happening in Pennsylvania. Big test. Can they run? Again, health issues aside. That's a separate question, but a very important one. But the deeper question that I find to be interesting is the question of Democrat central casting.
