I think a little humorous is I don't know where we are, but Ray apps I mean we were told again that January 6 was the Pearl Harbor of our time We've got a guy you know literally not figuratively on tape talking about we Need to go into the Capitol conservatives like you and I start asking questions like hey You know it wasn't a good idea to Disguised incentivize him to do it and all of a sudden ray apps is a hero in the media, but can you Make any sense to you um it does not but to answer your According to the corporate media and people like Adam Kinzinger who to your point everyone involved Even remotely involved even people who weren't there like Henry gay Tario the ex Of -leader the Proud Boys everyone is an insurrectionist a domestic terrorist.

He was To trying help police he wasn't instigating anything except and we have all the video evidence to the contrary. You know it was fascinating there's a hearing going on right now House Judiciary Committee and General Merrick Garland is there one of the Democrats is playing this video montage of January 6 and pops who up at the very first exterior breach point ray apps, but we're supposed to believe That he's only guilty
Sen. Tom Cotton: Dems Want to Prop Biden up by Taking Trump Down
"Washington DC has done the day before the Super Tuesday primaries. And that's because they know that Joe Biden is so weak, he's run our economy, That that he's not mentally fit to be president. And the only way they may be able to prop him up is to criminally charge not just the former president, Mark, that's bad enough. That's banana republic kind of stuff. Donald But Trump is also the leading candidate of the opposition party. That is really banana republic style operation. That's something you see in Brazil or Pakistan or other countries, not in America. And again, this is a very dangerous precedent that that water is already crossing the bridge, though. And we should not be surprised to see Republican Attorney General or Republican VAs, for instance, who have had Hunter Biden or Jim Biden or even Joe Biden passed through their jurisdictions at some point in recent years, looking for opportunities to charge them with crimes, just as these Democratic have prosecutors looked at Donald Trump much like Stalin's chief of secret police once said, show me the man and I'll find you the crime. Yeah, there's an interesting piece, Senator, by Byron York in the Washington Examiner the other day, any quote to see fight a is the language of the unheard. On February 7, 2022, Senator Tom Cotton, a member of the Judiciary Committee, wrote a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland. It was about the case of Ron Leslie, a Rochester, Minnesota man sentenced to 10 years in prison for setting a fire that killed a man during Black Lives Matter riot in Minneapolis. Remember this case? And you remember what the Department of Justice said while you were so upset about it? No, I remember it very well. This is during the BLM riots of 2020. Many of your listeners may remember this terrible tragedy where a building was set fire and it killed a man who was inside. It is a murder. This is not alluding, Mark. This is not

Search and rescue operations continue around the clock in Hawaii, where the death toll from the Lahaina wildfire has risen to 80. More victims were discovered yesterday in the rubble of the Maui resort town that was destroyed by a raging wildfire this week. One volunteer, emergency Leila Larson, says the reality is far more grim than what's being reported. People are lying dead in the streets out here. Hundreds of people are dead. I don't know what's really on the news, what they're saying. It's devastating. It's horrible. They had no warning. It happened so fast. The winds were so strong. The brush fire is now the deadliest natural disaster in Hawaii's history. Residents of the Northwest are being warned to prepare for excessive heat. Western Oregon could set temperature records on Monday and Tuesday with highs over 100 degrees. It'll also be unseasonably hot in Seattle with highs in the 90s. The hot weather is leading to red flag warnings and fire weather watches because of winds and low humidity, raising the risk of wildfires.

A highlight from The Trump Indictment: Political Persecution or Justice Served? with Mike Crispi
"The game has changed and all the consultants for the last 20 -30 years in the game are still living in the past and the Ron DeSantis model just is never going to work. You need candidates who are going to be charismatic and they keep saying it doesn't really matter but clearly it does matter. You can't fake it anymore like they used to be able to by hiding behind legacy media. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens, America's comeback now. starts right All righty, welcome back Financial Guys podcast here on the Financial Guys Media Network. Mike Sbarrozza in today sitting down doing an exclusive interview with political commenter Mike Crispi. Mike, thanks so much for joining us, appreciate it. Absolutely man, thanks for having me. So I know you were at a Trump rally recently, I was sad not to be able to go to that one. It was almost in my backyard in Erie, PA and I want to start there. Our first Trump's message, this was before the indictment that just came down last week, but what was your feeling about that rally? Some people had said that there was only 2 ,000 people there and it wasn't full and from what you had told me and from what I've heard it was definitely absolutely very full. Well, I got to tell you this, the biggest thing about the Trump rallies is just look at the comparison in any other candidate. In the dog days of summer in Erie, PA, Trump was drawing thousands of people in downtown Erie. It wasn't a rally that was in a field somewhere like in a cornfield in the middle of nowhere where people could park and come. This was in the downtown of a city. So logistics and parking and getting there in Erie, PA. So I was very impressed at the crowd size. There were some seats on the corners that weren't filled fine. But the vast majority of the arena was filled. It was an energetic crowd in a time period right now where people aren't even really seriously paying attention to the election yet. So I think Donald Trump did really well. I think that it's overwhelming. I saw a picture of Ron DeSantis having a rally at a gym in Iowa and there was maybe 30, 40 people there. So Donald Trump's surrogates alone are getting bigger crowds than the other presidential candidates and obviously Trump's rallies cannot be compared even close to anybody and I believe no matter what people say that that's a big indicator of the grassroots support that Donald Trump still has and that he's going to continue to have here as we continue to get on and as the election season continues to ramp up. And then we had a couple days after you were at that rally then the third indictment comes down. I want to get your initial reaction to it and then now a few days later. My initial reaction was, are you kidding me? They're trying to tell this guy that he can't think for himself or have his own thoughts about what he believes. That's what the indictment meant to me. I'd like to know what you thought about it. Well, I mean, the indictment is just, you know, further political persecution. I mean, I've been saying for a long time that their philosophy is let's throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. The Stormy Daniels thing was done. Everybody knows it's not going to stick and the only reason they did it is because they needed a quick story. They needed something quick as information was coming out about the Biden crime family. If you look at the timeline for every single indictment that's come on for Donald Trump, it has been the day after something damning drops on Joe Biden or Hunter Biden. It's to the day. The day after. It's happened three times in a row now. So, you know, it's not a coincidence. It is calculated. They're going after this guy. In this case in Washington, D .C., it was designed just to do that. It was designed to continue this drumbeat against Trump. They want to saturate the media narrative with the fact this guy's a criminal and that he's guilty. And they always, you know, say innocent before proven guilty, except when they want to push a narrative. And they basically push this contorted narrative that has been found guilty of anything. But look how bad he is. Look at what a troublemaker he is. And therefore, you need to move on to somebody else. So that's what they do with Trump. That's their only strategy to beat him. And the strategy rests on people in America going, oh, you know, I'm kind of tired of this Trump guy because he always seems to be in trouble with the law when in reality he's done nothing wrong. And the real problem is when it comes to lawlessness, isn't anything that Donald Trump's doing, but it's the fact these people weaponize the justice system in such an egregious way that they are the criminals. They're the ones who are skirting the law time and time again. So I'm not surprised by the indictment. The judge that got it, not surprised, an Obama donor, an Obama supporter, worked at the same law firm as Hunter Biden for a period of time. You can't tell me that that's real or that's an equal application of the law, that justice is blind. Clearly that's not the case. And then clearly they're going to indict him one more time. Fulton County, Georgia, that's what's going to be coming next. And once he gets indicted in Fulton County, Georgia, despite all of the obvious improprieties of that prosecutor, they're going to then say, oh, the criticism of this prosecutor is terrible because she's a black woman and that it's racist. You can't do that. Oh, it's a black woman going after Donald Trump. You criticize that. Well, this is just white rage. So this is their plan. It's a drumbeat leading up to four different indictments. And then they're banking on the public, getting tired of it. And I saw a poll that said that that said that it was like 40 percent of Republican voters said that they would maybe consider not voting for Donald Trump if he was indicted. I don't know if that's even a real poll. I think that they're throwing out suppression polls to try to get people to try to feel a certain way when every indicator that I've seen in real time, not the phony polls, shows that Trump's support is going up and that if he gets indicted, they're going to continue voting for him. As a matter of fact, more people will vote for him. It's rallying people to his cause. So it's a really crazy thing that's going on. I think that they thought that they could stop him with all this stuff, but clearly that's not working. He's only getting bigger and better and having more support. When is your prediction on the next indictment? Because, you know, it's coming. It's just a matter of when. When do you have that coming in next week, next month, six months from now? How long do you think? It's a good question. And I think that the answer will depend on when the House Oversight Committee has its next details emerging about Hunter Biden. So, you know, I don't exactly know. And that's the scary thing about it is there is no way to trace this other than what the House Judiciary Committee will find out about something totally unrelated. So think about it. Donald Trump hasn't been indicted in 77 years of his life. He left the White House two years ago and now he's being indicted for things that happened in his final months of his term over two years ago. So clearly there is no rhyme or reason for these indictments. The indictments only come when there is something that is being unveiled about the Biden crime family. So the craziest thing is, Mike, is we don't know when the next indictment is going to come because there is no process here. The only process is do it, to stifle Trump, to try to stop Trump. So it's going to happen within the next, I think, six months. That's just because whenever the next evidence of Biden gets dropped, then they'll drop that. And that's simultaneously the time that the election season is ramping up and they want Donald Trump in trial the closer it gets towards the RNC convention, him being declared the nominee. And then once he's the nominee, they want to convict him in court maybe a month or two months later within that time period once he's the nominee. And they want to create ultimate chaos. It's their only way to win. These people can't win real elections. They can only win elections by creating chaos and flooding the zone with induced hysteria and panic manipulated and purported by the mainstream media. So it's really terrible. And I think we don't even know what it's going to be, but that's the scariest part of it.
A highlight from How the House Can Beat Jack Smith with Rep. Matt Gaetz and Joe Allen
"Hey everybody to end the Charlie Kirk show Joe Allen and Matt Gaetz We talked transhumanism Ron DeSantis and a very interesting wild idea to immunize Donald Trump against the Department of Justice Email me as always freedom at charliekirk .com and get involved with Turning Point USA at tpusa .com That is tpusa .com Buckle up everybody here we go. Charlie what you've done is incredible here Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk Charlie Kirk's running the White House folks. I Want to thank Charlie's an incredible guy his spirit his love of this country He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created Turning Point USA We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries destroyed lives And we are gonna fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here I Brought to you by the loan experts. I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd com Joining us now is congressman Matt Gaetz He has lots of topics. He might have a future in Television he's been guest hosting quite often. I'm told the ratings are terrific Congressman welcome to the program. You have a rather creative idea Regarding Donald Trump testifying. I don't even quite understand it. So walk us through it Yeah, I don't know if it's all that creative Let's start here If Congress does not assert its equities in this jacksmith matter those equities will dissolve right now My worry is that too many of my colleagues in Congress think well, this is an ongoing matter So we just have to allow it to play out and it's the same loser mentality that infected much of the Congress in the early days of the Robert Mueller Investigation obviously we proved that to be the fraud that it was and not for nothing Charlie But you got to see this guy McGonigal who was on the ground floor of the investigation To accuse Trump of working with Russia has now pled guilty to working with Russia, but back to this matter Here's what we ought to do and we shouldn't make it that complicated First we should tell jacksmith that he has to show up and give a transcribed interview to the House Judiciary Committee in the next 15 Days if he doesn't do that, we should issue a subpoena if he ignores the subpoena We should hold him in criminal contempt of Congress and force him to be the first prosecutor to bring a case while under Criminal contempt himself and if Merrick Garland won't enforce that criminal contempt then he subjects himself to an impeachment of the house so it would be an attorney general under impeachment a prosecutor under contempt and I think that frames what's going on better than just sitting back and hoping we hear no Evil see no evil and speak no evil as this plays out because if we grant the premise Charlie that this is an ongoing Legitimate matter then it just builds into it the notion that it is law enforcement Activity and not election interference Congress has equities at play with election interference.
FBI Tipped Off Biden Team About Plan to Interview Hunter
"We find out that a former FBI agent has now confirmed under testimony, I believe given, key portions of the original whistleblower's shapely testimony in the Hunter Biden probe. And that's just out this evening. The House Committee on Over, like I said, I saw the tweet not too long ago. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Accountability announced that committee staff conducted a transcribed interview with a former FBI supervisory special agent assigned to the FBI's Wilmington office. That would be Wilmington, of course, Delaware, where all investigations in the Bidens go to die, but maybe not. And the Biden criminal investigation earlier today, and that the witnesses had confirmed key portions of the IRS whistleblower's testimony in the matter. As seen in the transcripts of committee staff interviews with the two IRS whistleblowers who apparently worked with this former FBI supervisory special agent, witnesses are advised that giving false testimony to committee staff is a crime prior to the commencement of the interview, which of course he was. And then Comer says today, this is a quote from his press release tonight, a former FBI supervisory special agent assigned to the FBI's Wilmington office and the Biden criminal investigation confirmed key portions of the IRS whistleblower's testimony. The night before the interview of Hunter Biden, both secret service headquarters and the Biden transition team were tipped off about the planned interview. So here we go again. On the day of the Hunter Biden interview, federal agents were told to stand by and could not approach Hunter Biden. They had to wait for his call. Now, and this is what we heard from Shapley that they couldn't go into the storage unit. And when he was out, I believe in California, and they were trying to interview him and they figured we'll just get them there. They tipped them off that they were coming there as well. So they never did that. As a result of the change in plans, IRS and FBI criminal investigators never got to interview Hunter Biden as part of the investigation. The justice department efforts to cover up for the Bidens reveals a two tiered system of justice that sickens the American people. The oversight committee, along with the judiciary committee and Ways and Means Committee will continue to seek answers, transparency and accountability that the American people deserve and demand. So that from Comey. Now, key points of the witness testimony according to the committee. Number one, as part of the criminal investigation, there were multiple witnesses interviews that were planned for December 8th of 2020. IRS supervisory special agent, Gary Shapley and the former FBI supervisory special agent who they interviewed today were assigned to interview Hunter Biden. So both guys who have testified now were the two guys who were supposed to interview
IRS Whistleblower Emails Suggest David Weiss Misled Congress
"Ladies and gentlemen, the case just there. Margo Cleveland has an amazing piece in The Federalist. If you want to read it, go to my newsletter, gino .com slash newsletter. That's where it's at. Margo is a great writer. There is a real problem they're going to have. They have two big issues. I like to sum things up easily for people. The Biden crime family has two issues big right now. Issue number one is that Biden continuing to claim that he has no relationship with his son with regards to business is completely ridiculous at this point. We've got WhatsApp messages. We've got Biden on voicemails. We've got business partners claiming Biden's the chairman. It's laughable, but they've got another problem too. And the other problem is in the DOJ. Merrick Garland has stated from day one, the attorney general, he has stated in no uncertain terms that he has nothing to do with the sweetheart deal. He turned the case over to this guy, David Weiss, the US attorney in Delaware, and that Weiss had all charging authority. copy. You It was a way for Joe Biden and Derek Garland, Derek Farland, sometimes called Merrick Garland. It was a way for them to disconnect themselves from the sweetheart deal. But here's the problem. A couple of whistleblowers surfaced, six of them, as a matter of fact, to say, that's interesting because that's not what the US attorney in Delaware told us. He told us he doesn't have decision making authority. Ladies and gentlemen, both of those things can't be true. Either Weiss has decision making authority or Garland does. This is zero sum. Margo Cleveland sums it up great in this piece. Delaware US Attorney Weiss told the House Judiciary Committee he'd been granted ultimate authority in a letter he decided to write June 7th, 2023, obtained by the Federalist.
The Federalist: Barr Confirms Raskin Lied About Biden Bribery Probe
"A politically driven Department of Justice. I don't know how much more evidence we need. It is swirling Helen Keller can see it. We have an official report now that points it out, but we didn't even need the official report, the Durham report. It's corrupt as hell and that should be the focus of our resentment and our attempt, not the victim. Bill Barr confirms Representative Jamie Raskin lied about Biden family corruption investigation. Jamie Raskin is the Adam of this matter. Jamie Raskin was on both. I repeat both impeachment panels. Jamie Raskin was on the January 6 committee. Jamie Raskin is on the Judiciary Committee. He is a former federal constitutional professor. He's also a coward. He's a coward. Christie's a coward. None of them will come on this program. There's Margo Cleveland, who's excellent over at the Federalist. Quote, it's not true. wasn't It closed down. William Barr told the Federalists yesterday in response to Democrat Representative Jamie Raskin's claim that the former Attorney General's hand -picked prosecutor had ended an investigation into a confidential human sources allegation that Joe Biden had agreed to a $5 million bribe. On the contrary, Barr stressed, it was sent to Delaware for further investigation. Now think about that. Jamie Raskin's caught in a flat out lie. he's And a main source on and off the record for the corrupt media, the Washington Compost in specific. Quote, think
FBI Whistleblower Marcus Allen Testifies to House Judiciary Committee
"The Democrat party is the party of totalitarianism They're simply no question about it In every respect in every respect Marcus Allen is an FBI whistleblower In part here's what he said Cut one go Despite my history of unblemished service to the United States the FBI suspended my security clearance accusing me of actually being disloyal to my country This outrageous and insulting accusation is based on unsubstantiated accusations that I hold conspiratorial views regarding the events of January 6th 2021 that I allegedly sympathize with criminal conduct I do not I was not in Washington D.C. on January 6th played no part in the events of January 6th and I condemn all criminal activity that occurred Instead it appears that I was retaliated against because I forwarded information in my superiors and others that questioned the official narrative of the events of January 6th As a result I was accused of promoting conspiratorial views and unreliable information Because I did this the FBI questioned my allegiance to the United States Since I was suspended there's been a dearth of communication from the FBI with interactions seemingly only being forced by actions from my council or members of Congress This gentleman is African American not that that matters but it matters to the Democrats But it didn't matter In the sense that they didn't come to his defense they trashed him
McConnell's Secret Plan: Stop Radical Judges & Biden's Spending
"All right, now I want to switch over to the judiciary committee. I'm writing a column for the post about leader McConnell and he got a lot of nicknames like cocaine Mitch in midnight Mitch and the grim Reaper. They ought to call him Mitch. Didn't I already tell you the answer, McConnell? Because he told the Democrat. He's not going to help them pass judicial nomination. And dianne Feinstein said it's not even a problem. You're on that. Committee, what is the situation? Well, he was just a tie though on the debt ceiling matter. Since then, McConnell said it earlier this week that we don't have a secret plan in the Senate to bail out Joe Biden. I'd go a step further. We don't have a secret plan to have a secret plan. Like no one is sitting around thinking that if we get to this day, okay, Mitch McConnell and Republican senators are going to swoop in and undercut House Republicans and save Joe Biden. It's not going to happen. Senator McConnell and I and Republican senators have said since January, the American people send a Republican majority of the house to put the brakes on Joe Biden runaway spending. The sooner Joe Biden gets on with it and sits down with Republican House members. The sooner we can raise our debt sale in a responsible fashion. Now, to your point about senator McConnell and judges. When Sarah Feinstein came down with a case of shingles, she was not able to attend anymore. Democrats began to climb, oh, this is paralyzing the judiciary committee. We can't confirm any of our judges. We need to do her the courtesy of temporarily removing her from the committee. Never been done before as far as I know. The only reason it would be necessary, the only reason it would be necessary to replace our temporarily or permanently is so the Democrats can confirm judges on a party line basis. We have confirmed or I'm sorry, we have voted out of committee numerous judges over the last three months in senator Feinstein's absence on a bipartisan basis. The only thing her absence has prevented Democrats from doing is confirming radical, unqualified judges on a party line basis. And senator McConnell several point was why would we encourage the Democrats to do that?
Rep. Chip Roy: Dems Ignore Border Crisis As China & Cartels Profit
"What is amazing to me that The White House likes to say this debt crisis is man-made This entire thing on the borders man-made It's all Biden made It's Democrat party made And yet it's not even a priority with your democratic colleagues in the house Not at all We were literally just debating our bill that we passed successfully out of the house of judiciary committee with our mutual friend Jim Jordan as the chairman We had Mark green and Michael McCall there from homeland and from foreign affairs We've got a really good bill that would reverse a lot of these policies Solidify our existing law but try to force the hand of the administration to stop releasing people because releasing people is the magnet and its purposeful Instead we would just simply say you got to detain people you got to put them through expedited removal or they got to wait in Mexico while their silent claims being processed That's it And if you do that the floor will stop You'll stop bowing cartels You'll stop empowering China who are getting rich off of what they're doing and pushing people through Mexico And Mike democratic college to your point literally don't care To them this is all a political issue and they could not give a rip about what's happening to Texas or migrants or Americans and they go around saying how compassionate they are But they're not offering any solutions We are We have a good Bill It's a really good Bill The best border security bill that I've seen come through if we can get it across the finish line We have a few little moving parts we're trying to finish the next 48 hours
How Democrats Changed the Game for Supreme Court Nominations
"Left has hated clarence Thomas since the moment George H. W. Bush to his credit, nominated him to go to the U.S. Supreme Court. Now, remember, Supreme Court hearings used to not be very contentious. Used to be 98 nothing and 72 ten kind of boring, you know, okay, great. Passerby. But then the Democrats decided across the Rubicon. The Democrats decided to derail one of president Ronald Reagan's nominees. The great Robert bork. Robert bork should have been on the U.S. Supreme Court. He was an unbelievable writer. He knew the constitution through and through, but they went after him, and they went after him very, very hard. They, not just condemned him, they mocked him. They made him seem like a radical, which he wasn't. He was a thoughtful, reasonable person. And the term borking, a nominee, was born. That you could derail a nomination. And they tried to do this Kavanaugh, by the way, and they were unsuccessful. And basically they were able to consolidate 58 Democrats to 42 Republicans to reject a Supreme Court nominee the first of which in over 50 years to be rejected by the U.S. Senate. Joe Biden was the instrumental person. He was the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and derailed Robert bork's attempt to go on the U.S. Supreme Court. Play cut one 19. As a nationally known jurist and legal scholar, Robert bork was a mainstay of conservative jurisprudence for more than half a century. Those views fueled a Titanic struggle over his 1987 nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, a fight that became a seminal moment in altering the process for all future nominees. Bork's Supreme Court confirmation hearings unfolded in September 1987, and heralded a historic struggle over the ideological composition of the federal courts. The judges responsibility is to discern how the framers values defined in the context of the world they knew. Apply in the world we know. Brilliant, Ted Kennedy, who was an evil person. How many times can you say chappaquiddick? Was involved. Joe Biden was involved. The same cabal. They never go away.
Lisa Boothe: Are We Still a Republic?
"But I was also thinking about how Benjamin Franklin when he was walking out of independence hall after the constitutional convention in 1787 and a woman shouted to him you know what have we got A republic or a monarchy to which he responded a republic if you can keep it Are we still a republic Do we want to keep it I mean how many young people know that we're a constitutional republic What direction are we heading in You know and I remember when Joe Biden announced it in 26 or 2020 rather when we were covering the 2020 election And there was this persona that oh it's just Joe Biden from Scranton Pennsylvania just good old Joe He's a good guy He's a moderate Don't worry about him He's not scary I never really bought that because I saw him flip flopping on things like taxpayer funded abortions on fossil fuels did not seem trustworthy This is a guy too who slandered the truck driver who was involved in a car crash that killed his wife and daughter tragic but he lied about the guy He slandered him The poor daughter of the driver You asked from you know please apologize You know or you look at the fact that he's just a prolific liar You look at the fact that when he served over the Senate Judiciary Committee he was at the helm of two of the most awful Supreme Court confirmation hearings with Robert bork and clarence Thomas This is not a good guy You know the only reason people think he's a good guy is because he has suffered the kind of loss that he has And you can have empathy for him suffering so much loss But he uses it politically as a sword and a shield He's not a good guy
Whistleblower Drops Bombshell on Biden's Immigration Policies
"A new whistleblower appeared before the Republican Congress yesterday. And offered some startling evidence and made some startling accusations. And her name is Terra Lee rotis. And she testified before the House judiciary committee. The issue was immigration, and we know, and have known for some time about the porous border. We know about the Biden administration, shenanigans, the willing cooperation with cartels, the gangs coming over into this country, the drugs coming over the sex trafficking that can occur with the migrants themselves. And all of this is just repulsive and why the Republican House has not already begun impeachment proceedings of mayorkas is beyond me. This is where Republicans tend to be kind of straight laced. They will how has Mallorca's violated the law? Well, the law is being massively flouted. And the fact that this isn't just Mallorca, it's just Biden policy. Well, who's the representative of that policy? It's my orcas.
Roberts declines Senate request to testify on court ethics
"Chief justice John Roberts has said no thanks to an invitation from the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify at a hearing next week on ethical standards at the Supreme Court. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. Judiciary committee chairman dick Durbin invited Roberts testimony after ProPublica detailed a close relationship between justice clarence Thomas and a conservative donor, but nonprofit investigative journalism organization reported Harlan crow had purchased properties belonging to Thomas and his family in a transaction worth more than $100,000, but that Thomas never reported. In a letter to durban Robert said he would respectfully decline the committee's request, describing such testimony as exceedingly rare, noting separation of powers concerns and the importance of preserving judicial independence. He instead provided the panel with the statement of ethics signed by all 9 justices. It describes the ethical rules they follow about travel gifts and outside income. Ben Thomas Washington
Ex-CIA Official: Blinken Orchestrated Intel Letter on Hunter Laptop
"Our current Secretary of State Anthony blinken apparently was the individual back in 2020 2020, excuse me, who set in motion the events that led to that infamous letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials that claimed that the New York Post's Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation. So this came from Mike morrell, those of you who don't recognize that name, he was the former head of the CIA for various times throughout the Obama administration between 2010 and 2013. And he testified last week before the House judiciary committee that he received a phone call from our current Secretary of State Anthony blinken, who back then was a senior member of the Biden 2020 presidential campaign, he got this phone call on October 17th, 2020 that was just three days after the New York Post dropped this Hunter Biden laptop story bombshell. I know the date by heart, October 14th, 2020 because that's my birthday. That day that that came out also, it happens to be a Salem colleague, Charlie Kirk's birthday. Anyway, three days later, apparently Mike morrell got this call from Anthony blinken in which Anthony blinken wanted to enlist Mike morel to help discredit this true Hunter Biden laptop story. Mister morrell said before the House judiciary committee that the call was, quote, couch a simply gathering morale's reaction to the post story, but actually it wasn't that. It quote set in motion the events that led to the issuance of the public statement the public statement, of course, being the letter that said that the Hunter Biden laptop story had quote all of the classic earmarks of a Russian disinformation operation.

"The House judiciary committee will be in New York City Monday for a hearing as part of a campaign to cast the democratic prosecutor who indicted Donald Trump as weak on violent crime. The field hearing will examine Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg's policies and record Republican chairman Jim Jordan says they've led to an increase in violent crime and a dangerous community for New York City residents. Bragg said of Jordan really cared about public safety. He started in his home state of Ohio, where crime is reportedly higher than in New York, mayor Eric Adams, backs him. This is not about public safety. We're trending in the right direction. There districts are trending in the wrong direction. Bragg is suing representative Jim Jordan to halt the inquiry that he contends is a transparent campaign to intimidate and attack him over his indictment, a former president Trump, Julie Walker, New York. Many Americans were spending this weekend finalizing their tax returns through online services. But the federal government is considering a filing system of its own in the future. The tax filing deadline is Tuesday, about 25% of Americans wait until the last minute, using programs from Intuit, H and R block, and other private companies that charge for their software. But the IRS is exploring the creation of a government operated electronic tax return system that would be free to use. A government spending bill last summer gave the IRS 9 months and $15 million to report in on how it might implement such a program and how much it would cost. Taxpayer advocates loved the idea. Critics have been skeptical about the IRS taking on two roles. Tax collector and tax preparer, possibly creating a power imbalance between taxpayers and the government. I'm Jackie Quinn.

A new report from the national urban league finds democracy for black Americans under attack. The civil rights and urban advocacy group cites threats such as extreme views adopted by some local state and federal political leaders who try to limit what history can be taught in schools and seek to undermine how black officials perform their jobs. One example, the vote this month by the Republican controlled Tennessee House to oust to black representatives for violating a legislative rule, the annual state of black America report documents an increase in recent years in hate crimes, as well as attempts to make voting more difficult. It also cites examples of extremist views being normalized in politics, the military and law enforcement.

It also coincided with the Muslim sacred month of Ramadan. The overlapping holy days in each faith was felt on the streets of Jerusalem. Leaders of the Greek Orthodox church say Israeli police are unfairly limiting worshippers right to celebrate the Easter holy fire ceremony, church leaders called attendance restrictions, heavy handed. And inappropriately placing the burden of the churches. The Roman Catholic Church in the Holy Land says there has been an increase in brazen attacks on Christians here. Most Israeli officials have stayed quiet about the attacks. And the introduction of a law criminalizing Christian proselytizing and the promotion of plans to turn the mount of olives into a national park have stoked anger. Prime minister Netanyahu vowed to block the bill from moving forward following pressure from evangelical Christians in the United States. I'm Walter ratliff.

"Spin news for Thursday, march 2nd, 2023, stand up for your country. You have a lot of very, very good information for you tonight. And here we go. We're going to get into a very depressing situation, corruption in the Department of Justice. And this is going to affect every American. So earlier this week, FBI chief, Christopher wray, gave an interview to Fox News. And then attorney general Merrick Garland testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Both of those things are the subject of this evening's talking points memo. We begin with a federal statute. Title 18 section 1507 of the U.S. code. It was enacted in 1950. It says, quote, under this law it is illegal to pick at a parade in front of a courthouse or a judge's home with intent of interfering with obstruction or impeding the administration of justice or with the intent of influencing any judge. Well, that is exactly what happened on May 7th, 2022 in front of justice Kavanaugh's home and chief justice Roberts's home. So we're going to roll some tape now on the radio, I'll describe it to you. It dozens of protesters, some with bullhorns, all right? And they are out in front of the house because of the abortion ruling. All right? And there's even sound on tape of this. Go

"Anderson. Thanks for being with us. Attorney general America Garland dealt with a lot of questions during testimony today before the Senate Judiciary Committee, including how the administration is dealing with a dangerous surge in deaths from fentanyl. How would you describe the fentanyl problem in America? A horrible epidemic? South Carolina, a senator Lindsey Graham among the Republican lawmakers who press Garland on various issues. And joining us live from Capitol Hill. Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell and Miller. Okay, Mitch, what does the attorney general say, the administration is doing about the fentanyl crisis. Garland actually acknowledged under questioning from senator Graham that much more needs to be done since more than 70,000 people are dying from fentanyl every year. That's more than from shootings and auto accidents combined. He says Mexico has tried to help, but admitted it's not doing nearly enough to stop organized drug rings from getting fentanyl across the border. He did cite the fact that the DEA and law enforcement sees enough fentanyl last year that it could have killed every American across the country. But this, as you know, is an area that Republicans have really hit hard on in connection with charges that the Biden administration has not done enough to address the situation at the border. And it wasn't just fennel that they grilled him on, Garland also received a heated exchange with Texas senator Ted Cruz, who says that the attorney general didn't do enough to protect Supreme Court Justices in the wake of threats after the decision to overturn roe V wade what happened there. Right, senator Cruz, like other Republicans sought to suggest that Garland is politically biased that he enforces laws against those whose policies he disagrees with while somehow ignoring others. And Cruz focused in on those threats against the justices that came out after the decision in that historical abortion rights case. How do you decide which statute you enforce and which ones you don't? That Marshals on scene make that determination in light of the priority of defensives do not make a determination over whether to prosecute. Now, Garland said he was the first attorney general to order dozens of Marshals to protect the justices at their homes, but acknowledge no protesters were prosecuted. Also on the separate issue of Hunter Biden, the president's son, he said he has sought to stay out of the investigation by the U.S. attorney in Delaware. And then Garland only got one question about the investigation into classified documents of the homo former president Trump and it came from a democratic member of the panel. What happened? Right, that was a little bit of a surprise. The question came from Senate Judiciary Committee chair dick Durbin, who asked about the rationale for appointing special counsels in the case of mister Trump, as well as for the classified documents found at the home of President Biden, Garland defending the decision noting that Donald Trump is now a candidate for president. He feels that's a fair way to handle the investigation, and he feels it's even handed to do the same thing with President Biden, who's likely going to announce his reelection plans in the coming weeks or months all in all Garland probably knew this was going to be his longest day of the week, testifying before this committee.

"Be a preferable approach. Why forced an issue that you know you can win in a new Congress. And I think that was the thinking by humor and other leaders on the democratic side. I mean, is there any way that having an extra committee member is going to speed up the committee even more when Durbin he's following the same path that other judiciary committee chairman have followed before him? Well, yes, I think that it will speed up the process, especially for people who might be more controversial and at least before receive pi vote. But now with the at least 1110 or maybe 1210 of the judiciary committee, they will easily go through committee, hopefully the hearings won't be as controversial as some have been. It also depends partly on who the particular nominee is. But I think it will go more smoothly from the democratic perspective. I think the other question you're asking and some progressive groups have asked as well is all those vacancies going to be filled in the next two years and there are many 72 at the district level and ten at the appellate level and then 25 or so future vacancies. And as judges continue to take senior status or retire or die, they're going to be additional vacancies and everyone wants to see all of those vacancies built. And it just takes time. I was surprised to see that the center left after one day of purely introductory were for a couple of weeks. They went home for they worked periods until the 23rd. After that, we'll have president day, which will take another week. And so the calendar moves on. So the solution to that, we don't have proposed is either to have more nominees in specific hearings or to have them more often than one every two weeks, which is I think the president you were referring to.

it So typically senators want to know what they call the Supreme Court nominees judicial philosophy how will this nominee approach constitutional interpretation How will this nominee approach statutory interpretation How does this nominee think about judging As you note judge Jackson has been a judge for quite some time We have a pretty good sense of her approach to judging But that typically tends to be the questions I will say I think many people say it's just kabuki theater We don't actually learn very much from the nominee And in recent confirmation hearings nominees haven't said a lot about how they will rule in particular cases and they shouldn't right Judges should not say how they might rule either in particular cases or in particular contexts So that makes a lot of sense But we can still get a good sense of how much the judge knows about the law and judge Jackson knows a tremendous amount So I think we'll get a sense of her familiarity with a wide variety of areas of law I also think the confirmation hearings are interesting because of the questions the senators ask I think we learn as much about the United States senators and their familiarity with

that fair game I mean someone was a criminal defender and represent some people who perhaps ended up getting convicted As many people do should that be counted against them I think the fact that judge Jackson was a public defender should count at her favor because this is the kind of experience that very few members of the Supreme Court have had certainly in a very long time the last public defender was thurgood Marshall or former public defender was thurgood Marshall And this offers a perspective on the U.S. Supreme Court that I think is quite valuable There are lots of people who have been former prosecutors who have turned into judges I think there's real value in having someone who has been on the other side And the reality is we have a zealous advocacy system This is what lawyers do Lawyers represent their clients and try to do it to the best of their ability And so if one is a public defender when it's going to be defending people who may have maybe accused of having done some terrible things And that's the job You give them the best representation possible and that's what makes the system work So no I don't think it's fair game to criticize her for what her clients may or may not have done Professor it's in my experience impossible to know what a person will do once they're on the Supreme Court They're appointed for life and they often end up different than you think But just speculate here a little bit what difference do you think potentially could judge Jackson make on the Supreme Court People are saying look it's not going to change the tilt the

Breyer or could differ But in many areas they won't It'll still be what people view as a 6 to three supermajority super conservative majority on the Supreme Court I actually think it matters a lot to

Justice a member of the Watergate prosecution team I first met Steven breyer when I was a senator on the judiciary committee And he started off as taking care of one of the subcommittees for teddy but then became chief counsel During his tenure as chairman chairmanship of the judiciary committee beyond his intellect and hard work and legal insight he was famous for biking across Washington virtually every day for face to face meeting with a Republican chief council the ranking Republican council And over breakfast they discussed what would they do for the country together Or as in those days we tried to do things together That spirit stuck with me when I took over the judiciary committee as chair after senator Kennedy's tenure And it was my honor to vote to confirm justice prior to serving the United States Supreme Court The Court of Appeals first in 1980 And then 14 years later in 1994 I got to preside as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee over a Supreme Court confirmation hearings We were joking with one another when he walked in We ever think that he'd have served decades on the court and I'd be president of the United States when the day he came in and retired And he looked at it Somebody said I'm joking But I was proud and grateful to be there at the start of this distinguished career in the Supreme Court And I'm very proud to be here today on his announcement of his retirement You know during his confirmation here is way back in 1994 Nominee Steven breyer said quote a law must work for the people He explained to us his faith that our complex legal system has a single purpose Tell people who make up our country It was a different time of course But as brilliant's values and scholarship or why judge brier became justice breyer by an overwhelming bipartisan vote at the time Today justice prior to announce his intention to step down from active service after four decades four decades on the federal blinds in 28 years on the United States Supreme Court His legacy inclusion's work as the leading scholar in Jewish and administrative law bringing his brilliance to bear to make government run more efficiently and effectively It includes his stature as a Beacon of wisdom on our constitution and what it means And through it all just as priors work tirelessly to give faith to the notion that the law exists to help the people Everyone knows that Stephen breyer has been an exemplary of justice Fair to the parties before him courteous to his colleagues careful in his reasoning He's written landmark opinions on topics ranging from reproductive rights to healthcare to voting rights to patent law to laws protecting our environment and the laws that protect our religious practices His opinions are practical sensible and nuanced It reflects his belief that a job of a judge is not to lay down a rule but to get it right to get it right Just as Brian's law clerks and his colleagues as many of the press here know describe him and his work ethic His desire to learn more His kindness to those around him and his optimism for the promise of our country And he has patiently sought common ground and built consensus seeking to bring the court together I think he's a model public servant in a time and great division in this country Justice breyer has been everything his country could have asked of him And he's appeared before when he appeared before the judiciary committee of almost three decades ago We all had high hope for the mark he would leave on the history law and the constitution And he's exceeded those hopes in every possible way Today is his day Our day to commend his and his life of service and his life on the court But let me say a few words about a critically important work of selecting his successor Choosing someone to sit in the Supreme Court I believe is one of the most serious constitutional responsibility of president has Our process is going to be rigorous I will select the nominee worthy of justice prior's legacy of excellence and decency All I've been studying candidates backgrounds and writings I've made no decision except one A person I will nominate will be some of the extraordinary qualifications character experience and integrity And that person will be the first black woman ever nominated to the United States Supreme Court It's long overdue in my view I made that commitment during the campaign for president and I will keep decades I will fully do what I said I do I will fulfill my duty to select the justice Not only with the Senate's consent but with his advice Heard me say in other nomination processes that the constitution says seek the advice and consent but the advice as well of the Senate I'm going to invite senators from both parties to offer their ideas and points of view I'm also consult with leading scholars and lawyers And I'm fortunate to have advising me in this selection process Vice president Kamala Harris She's an exceptional lawyer former attorney general of the state of California former member of the Senate Judiciary Committee I will listen carefully to all the advice I'm given And I'll study the records and former cases carefully I'll meet with the potential nominees and as my intention my intention to announce my decision before the end of February I have made no choice at this point Once I select a nominee I'll ask the Senate to move promptly on my choice In the end I will nominate a historic candidate someone who's worthy of justice breyer's legacy and someone who like justice breyer will provide incredible service on the United States Supreme Court Tessa's prior on behalf of all the American people I want to thank you and your family and your family for your tremendous service to our nation I will yield for.

"Senate Judiciary Committee House Financial Services Committee, and I found out very quickly. That none of these people knew anything about short selling. So I've already been reached out to buy a couple of Congress folks who saying the getting ready to do some stuff. Hopefully, I'll get to throw my hat in the ring and put it in some regular man terms. But the bottom line is There's no way to predefined your downside when you short because theoretically, a stock could go to infinity so much like Mitch said, And he's a real advisor. He's the guy over at the macro trend, advises founding partner Own short if it's not suitable for you, and you haven't done a whole bunch of homework, and it's just not for the regular people and Mitchell so I was talking about the speeds of trading. Many people don't realize that You know, retail trading is probably about 9 to 10%. Of all the volume in the market. Everything else is rowboat, creating auto trading algorithms. And even when retail investors do go in to try to trade against them, it's like a David versus Goliath. You're better off investing, and I always say 8 to 10 year trends like that's when your lifestyle changes. Maybe take another look at it. What do you tell people to do right now? You know, I think you if you're a retail investor right now, and the good news is that et efs have become so using s a T word ubiquitous. I mean, there's so many of them. There's so many choices. You could pick the sectors that you like. You don't have to worry about individual stock risk on do you can put money in the programmatic basis. I'm a big fan of dollar cost averaging for the retail investor. So you don't have to. You know, you can buy in a down day You could buy after a couple of down days, but pick the sectors you like and invest for. Yes, the next milestone kids entering high school and you know you wanna have that money for them, and they graduate from college. So figure out what the right Thing to invest in for four year duration. The problem, JT right now is that people who need yield there's just none of it out. There s o the 10 year Treasury at 1.13 or whatever it is right now, so we're finding a lot of money going into the equity markets for yield. You've got some blue chip companies building two times, the 10 year treasury or more. So I think that the other thing I tell it retail investors to do If you're buying individual stocks reinvested dividends right because that you get the benefit of compounding. Interest and you'll find yourself after 10 years only twice as many shares. Well, very sage advice from one of the best in the business, Metro shell. Thank you very much, Brother. Really appreciate it. Look forward to seeing you soon. I find the way Thanks for having me here is the drink a father. It's cranberry juice, but I got it anyway. It's red. It's national wear red.

"Hannity, you missed the force or try to force and pressure and attorney General, the chief law enforcement officer. In the country to violate the law to accommodate whatever sick political agenda they have, Uh, you you cannot ask the attorney general of the United States to break the law. Now They want some of this supporting materials released, so apparently there was some type of agreement. That had been reached there between the House Judiciary Committee and so the criminal contempt thing is not gonna happen, and that's not going forward. Then. All right, so they've been trying to call everybody back. Everybody that already testified before the House committee before the bipartisan Senate Committee on before Mueller. If you look at the amount of materials that were sent over, let's just start with the White House. The president allowed every single person That was requested to testify before any of these committees meeting the House investigation. The bipartisan Senate investigation then Mueller's investigation. Everyone that worked in the Trump White House. Not one person was told not to cooperate, just the opposite. They were all given permission and encouraged to testify. Frankly, it was unprecedented that they even allowed the White House counsel the time Don began to testify before Mueller for 30 hours. That's insanity. There's there's got to be on line in the sand somewhere. They sent over 1.5 million pages of documents of documents to the Special counsel's office. You know that that one time during this process that the president who had the right To invoke executive privilege. Did he ever invoke executive privilege. Senate. Intel had their own investigation, the House had their investigation. And they conducted scores of transcribed interviews. And by the way, we're waiting to get some of these closed door interviews released, we could know more about the deep state What happened and who did what When and where. And who said what, When and where. And You know, not watching these deep state actors all turn on each other's is getting interesting. So you had all of all of these investigations that have gone on repeatedly. And they've come up with nothing. And they're not going to come up with anything. That's that's the problem. And when you look at the law as it is As as it is written. You know, there's only so many times that You're gonna cooperate before it becomes abuse of their power.
