Senate Republicans push for announcement of Supreme Court nominee

"Trump and Joe Biden on the stakes of appointing a new justice to the Supreme Court in the final days before the election, and it's time now for our Sunday group GOP strategist Karl Rove. Fox Fox News at night anchor Shannon Brain who covers the Supreme Court for US, and Noel Athe of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service. Panel. I've done some reporting on this, and here's what I have been hearing from a source a top source close to the process. Republican senators and White House officials are pressing the president to announce His nominee before the first debate next week. Ah, consensus seems to be developing in the Senate toe hold confirmation hearings confirmation hearings before the election, but delay a final vote till a lame duck session after November 3rd. To protect vulnerable Republicans who are up for re election. As for the nominee, the early focused on the White House not settled yet. But the early focuses on two federal appeals court judges any Cockney Barrett of Indiana and Barbara Lagoa of Florida, Carl What is your sense? I'm sure you're talking to people at the White House and in the Republican majority in the Senate. What's your sense of where this is at it? Well, I think you outlined it. I think the president is prepared to make a quick nomination. I suspect that the Senate is ready Assumes the FBI does its background check one of the things about doing both of doing either. One of these two appellate judges is that they were confirmed by the by the Senate in recent years, so the FBI background check will only need to be sort of an update, not a complete new deep dive. So The process is on its way. I suspect in a rather rapid fashion. Do you think the confirmation hearing happens before the election, But the actual vote happens after they hold that for the lame duck. I wouldn't be surprised to see the committee hold hearings and maybe even vote before the election. But I don't expect that with just over 42 days, 44 days. I guess it is that that it will be possible. Teo bring this all the way to the floor before the election.

Political paid media verses earned media and what it means for campaigns

"Yeah I mean look at it. Earned media is king. What is that so you two types of meters earned and paid paid? Tv commercial or did you stick yourself shooting yourself and then hey fortress and there's earned media which is which is good news interviews me sitting down with you so you cut. The only good thing is major more valuable. It used to be exactly. Thank you for that. Cbs executives major isn't it for God's sake I know but major fantastic the ask look so that's more that's more important. Earn me what you can create either on websites or social media traffic or someplace else is more important than what that what you used to invest in price highly just four or five or six years ago so nobody spent more on TV in the presidential primary. Then pardon me then thinking at twenty sixty and makes me wanNA cry is Jeb Bush Jeb Bush but more on TV than any other candidate we all know how that way and it was also failure in a miserable waste of his donors money. Donald Trump spent less on paid media than any other candidate and he won. So let's just do number Michael Bloomberg spending more than one hundred million dollars on advertising digital and television. We have no idea how much you spend on field. But some soup factor of tens of millions on top of that and has a handful of delegates. Donald Trump spent seventy million dollars and he's present United States I would just Bloomberg campaign was like a movie that had the biggest Budget for marketing. The best trailer and some people that you wanna go see and then the minute opening weekend happened. Word of mouth killed it. Dead right was soon as people saw Michael Bloomberg on stage. I think the air popped out of that balloon and said Oh wait a minute. This guy's not ready to go. Up Against Donald Trump. We can't do that. So what has changed in your in politics this digital digital okay talk about digital. I remember when I was first doing campaigns. The original tech person was like some intern who was doing websites. Then that person became like social media person who all worked for the communications director at the kids table so the kids table they work for the communications director. They didn't get to the big meetings and they were just posting stuff online. And then it's a whole department and then it went to like you know and the twenty sixteen. Hillary Clinton basically ran a digital campaign and it was all digital. They had very little field operations to you have to do. Both you have to figure this with the Obama. People who did well they had a great digital operation. They also stories for its time. They talk to voters face to face figured out how to blend the best of both worlds But what's really different now. The number of people who are on facebook in particular limits almost like the phone. It's like a utility. Everybody uses it. So you've got to be able to communicate with people online and you didn't have to digital is just like television in that it's a tool but but the real thing is that paid digital is no different than paid television in that. It's not as effective. What makes Social Media? Effective is the social aspect around. That's well that's my friend. Well my friend sent this to me or they on their page and it's that authenticity now people don't trust anything anymore right and you can't so back in two thousand four ladies and gentlemen you can read books about this but I covered that campaign and the Bush campaign had a very big commitment to what they called. Third Party verifiers. This was before social media. So what was the third party? Verifier your neighbor is your pastor. Your Little League coach always been true. The person in your world who's not your best friend right but is someone you generally trust and would consider in your larger circle of friends and they said Hey. I'm a Bush supporter. Oh really that became amplified. It is amplified for good or bad on social media in both directions absolutely that was the beginning of micro targeting being used in campaigns That Rove started doing that Karl Rove yes and the. It's now because things are so much faster now. It is tougher to use it in the same scientific way. That communication is so rapid. And there's so much of it. We measured in two thousand sixteen the earned media impressions and the paid media impressions of every candidate in the primary and there was only two weeks of the entire primary campaign. We were measuring that. Donald Trump didn't have more earned media impressions than than every other campaigns earned paid combined right. And it's usually by a substantial marks. Right right definitely right and so at the end of the day it is about that. Authentic communication. So you had. You had the candidate that have Kansas to this before we go the fun game segment so Jamal people ask me. All the time are are. We are politics and celebrity. Now intertwined and only the only way to run anymore is to celebrity No I don't think that's true because you can build somebody to celebrity can turn somebody into a celebrity. Okay I do think though politics and personality are you. Can't the lenses of how people are looking at you look at you from so many different directions? We've always done this television but now it's not just television. Is Mitt. Romney learned? It's the waiter in the room with the with the camera phone whose recording you while you're talking you've got to be the person you are in public and you're going to be that person all in a way in campaigns we didn't use to have to figure out what to say when you go out there out there and do it and you come back in the room and be all Taylor if you wanted to. You can't do that

"PULL UP A chair tax on tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy mm-hmm morning. Everybody Moorings got to give back to the show. My ran here. Murphy's kicks so much ass you had a hip replace- The podcast today is being brought to you by Vicodin which should make an interesting show we are really pleased to be be here hacks on tap on the road here at the at the at the Texas Monthly Festival Texas Tribune Festival okay the Big Astara Fluffy here. We're here to be exactly. We're good glad to be here and I guess there's no way of avoiding it right the elephant in the room yeah access a camp burglar no no. There is a big issue in politics so let's start with it. The Texas Texas Senate race. What do you think get demographically. Things are changing here but still republican state but there's another issue that might be on every bill so handsome on tap. We should probably talk about it here. There's something going on in Washington. You know we were together on Tuesday morning. That's and we were we were being splashed and buffeted by the winds of of storm. We didn't realize by the end of the week it would be a category five hurricane true and that is this this Ukraine story in impeachment and now we're we're well into it and it feels different than the the other the many other controversies involving trump even the muller a report because you have the president in his own words words speaking in ways that create real real problems for me yeah my view. We're going to get into the politics of this thing because we could. We could do a three hour one on interpreting all this in terms of who did what that was wrong but you know the pressure meter in the democratic world is up because Presidential Primary Hi Mary going on. There's a lot of pent-up frustration on democratic side incomes a pretty simple narrative starring the president not the kind of complicated Muller report with these various Henchman Schmidt Upton who knows what so the Democrats had the opportunity to move strong move fast and they're mad is Hornets and they got. I'm never trump Republicans so I'm finding myself in the in the new world of remind but I think the thing I think the leadership decided to move fast toward impeachment Publican world perfectly court trump world is going to push back like crazy and now we're going to be into a political fight. That's GonNa take over everything for a while. So we're going to hear from Austin Zone Karl Rove shortly our guest John. It's all right you can over here in the Stetson and and he wrote earlier in the week that he thought that this would this would splash back in a negative way on Democrats and I was one who was very very leery about Democrats four Democrats about proceeding on impeachment because I thought that it would be viewed negatively and it would be viewed as politically motivated now. It seems to me the cynical move would be not to move forward because this was such a blatant affront that you'd have to make a very overtly political decision to say we're not. GonNa look at this. Yeah I mean and my instinct impeachment was would have been a mistake but now when the facts change so made the strategy. I do think if the leadership decided well we got the the old argument we have an election coming up the voters can impeach him then this thing will get in the way there's rested at the theory that could backfire which I don't think I subscribe to but for all for those reasons the problem is that they tried to bottle up the thing now with the power that Ukraine argument that there'd be a revolution the side of the Democratic Party because the grass roots would would eat their leadership so I think they've just started to harness that power and go for it and look. We don't know one this. This thing is going to move fast. We're GONNA learn more but the questions I've got start with one one for you is how does this change the laws of gravity and the Lens through which the Democratic presidential central primary. It's operating you can argue that now the general election Biden trump the main event has begun. You can also argue that. We're learning a lot about one hundred. Biden and a lot of guys whose names we can't can't pronounce and money that could be a subtext negative for Biden so you think well. I think it's unknown. I think that in the short run Biden may actually benefit from this because trump is identifying him as his principal. I mean look Watergate began because Richard Nixon was worried about Ed Muskie for right at the time. This is obscure American history so bear with us for a second he was worried about Ed Muskie and he wanted to influence the Democratic primary process and so he you know he his campaign put together subversive activities to undermine muskie they wanted George McGovern right who wound up losing forty nine nine worked out forty nine states I mean trump and his faithful henchman Rudy Giuliani plainly believe that that by news the most threatening candidate right or wrong. That's what they believe and polling at this moment would suggest that he is doing the best against trump he is reaching into those non college older working class white voters who are the core. I was struck by the the Fox News poll last Fox News poll which was in the last ten days non college educated White Women. He's underwater with them and and Biljana was winning by a so. These are things he's looking at. He's being told this guy could be. He's freaking out and that's what led to this. That doesn't mean that he's right that you know because Biden has to go the distance right doubts about whether or not he can in fact in the in the week before you know in the days before this story broke. There were two polls that surfaced that showed Elizabeth Warren marginally edging ahead of Biden nationally she we talked about last last week that she has the Iowa poll has taken marginally there and I think she's in a very strong the position there that is very clear that the that the trump people think that she would be a an easier opponent to beat. I'm not at all sure that that's always a great case. Everybody assumes stuff a year out and then more than often it's not and then the thing gets turned auburn unstoppable. Muskie with this and you know you one big bed saying it was unstoppable and then a little thing called the union leader car will remember work it does it sounds like an oxymoron unstoppable muskie right right so in this one the stuff we don't know is will will the. Biden folks decide to really engage and take this moment to say. It's me and trump death match. Let's go and try to tribally lineup all his troops right. Now is kind of happen gauging aging. I think that's a mistake because this is the best thing he's got going. It's risky it's dangerous but what he's got going so declared a state of war emergency in the Democratic Party and everybody sharp stick and go oh and see if you can unify thing if not if that doesn't happen and the subtext in people's minds as they washed us in the Democratic primary world thinking. You can have damned trump but this biden. We're GONNA get Hillary it again that honor whatever to help fifty thousand a month. I don't like it change the channel in the base. You've got Elizabeth Warren and no doubt this race right. Now is Elizabeth Warren versus the field and vines atop the field but there are a lot of these understudies hanging around who are more than happy to slide up there and say how'd you like to run against trump during impeachment when the Republican Senate those bad puppets clear him Merrick garland style wave the battle flag was somebody who it doesn't have to explain hunter by before you hurt. There's nothing well I agree with you and I and I think that he should seize this his best moment in this whole campaign was I think the speech after the after the terrible massacre in El Paso and but you know there are moments and you have to seize them. I'm sure he has I don't know whether that's because he feels he doesn't want to engage on the hunter issue issue but he needs to maintain that sense that this is the main event the two of them but you mentioned the the the gutless list Republicans in in Garland mode if I can pay cruel yes but just just for time say thankful senators unders examining all the facts and the full takes to say see how long that takes saying the guy who said quoting one of them that thirty that's for you. Ah You're like a big newsmaker hardly because then Jeff Flake pick it's like an it's like an auction here jeff picked up and said no thirty five billion his lawyers say flake. You're smoking something thirty eight but he doesn't matter they're look Parkas. It's not a secret ballot you you asked right now. The average Republican senator and I would even say the average politician for different issues like include the Democratic senators to choose between something like visit losing admittance to the Senate barbershop and the two dollar haircuts. That's where they're lined up. They're afraid of their primary voters and their primary voters. Most of them are GonNa be with the the tribe with the president so nobody nobody could appreciate the desire to get a good haircut more than you and me well. That's that's true and if I were a senator I'd be waiting in the fullness of time to make sure all the facts come in. Mr Hannity is doing an investigation. I'd WanNa wait for that the so yeah look the the Biden thing is for let me just get back to that because I'm kind of obsessed with it this Biden's moment and there's something about the Biden campaign where they say look internally. I know some people aren't I like him. I think they're smart but the weather operating is look. We got a danger prone gaffe machine here so we got to put a big iron belt around and not let them get near anybody. Who's going to say something. Well guess what newsflash everybody knows. He's that it's built in and they kinda like him. I bottle it and say so much art. Another great gap from the fighting Democrat is going to save us from trump now. They're afraid to talk about Hunter Biden well. We better get ready to talk about one hundred five because I can go this huge. This been a problem from the beginning they've kind of he's in like a candidate protection program. He's he's in is in a bubble double and you cannot hide in a presidential race. You cannot hide. I said years ago I sit there like Mri's for the soul. Whoever you are yep it gets exposed over time because the coverage is so intense and if you duck and if you hide it is noticeable and that is the concern I like Joe Biden and I worked with Joe Biden. He was in my view..

"What Karl rove now really something that Jack people into into their mode. Yeah. I picked up. My Wall Street Journal today, though, my blood pressure immediately rose. He such a third third. The Punchbowl snake at the garden party. I'm ruining the chump snake? Just swallowed a pig. But a guy had a really good point. He said, oh, yeah. Because turning the other cheek worked out so well for George Bush, right? Everyone hated him. Remember, the Karl rove was the guy who said, you know, would they apparently found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? Again, they were obsolete. They had been used in years. But they were there. Right. Right. And Karl rove just said, nah, let's not even bring it up. It'll just get even more excited. So they just keep taking that. They just kept taking the shots. You know, remember Bush? People. On and on. They didn't answer it. They turn the other cheek. I was thinking about this today. So Bush got reelected and the liberals haded him like you remember how you would think to yourself. This can't get any. They can't hate anyone more than the heat towards Bush, and then Trump came along. The only difference is though that the liberals hated George Bush the, but the Republicans didn't really love him either the difference with Trump is the liberals hate him probably more than the heated Bush, but his fanbase will go to bat for him way, more than George Bush's vs. 'cause my parents are still remember they were like you. Remember that one of the reasons why people love trumps so much is because unlike George W Bush and Karl rove. He doesn't turn the other cheek. He punches back. Right. And I don't know. I think Bush hate was pretty strong back. Then I mean, it was Trump Trump's is different because there's more social media now, there's more ways to be deranged, but they were calling him a war criminal. Yeah. And they can't really apply that the Trump because he's trying to and worse. No, you you're ending criminal. It's easy to forget. But people they also they also blames Bush bur crashing the economy. Even though he had tried to stop the subprime loans with with Senator Johnson owner that the younger sununu, and the Democrats wouldn't hear of it. And that's that's one reason. The the economy crashed in two thousand eight with those subprime those subprime loans, by the way, I've got the exact quote from Thomas Jefferson, and he he he worded it better than I did believe it or not. I'm sure. Hold on hold on. Yeah. He never had to New York Times bestsellers on like, oh, wow. This is like when. Abraham LINCOLN the press is impotent when it abandons itself the falsehood so much. So what you tweet that back at the Brian Stelter say this is the reason for your crappy ratings this week, you have the band your impotent because you have abandoned yourself. The falsehood Ivanka tweeted something very similar to that. A quote, it's said something like the best recourse against false statements is just when the truth comes out or something. And it was like that was Abe Lincoln. Yeah. Abraham lincoln. And I'm sure they go crazy with that. He also said Jefferson also said our liberty cannot be guarded. But by the freedom of the press, they're free. All right. Yeah. They're free to be nut jobs. They're free to abandon themselves to falsehood. Anyway. How I want to talk a little bit about Jesse smell at because I know you touched on this. But it is hilarious that the new strategy with his team is that the Nigerian brothers were wearing Whiteface or. Let me rephrase that it's plausible that they could have some world had been wearing white sued the city of Chicago to he's thinking of suing the city of Chicago for arresting him, even though they had they have they have overwhelming evidence that he committed this fake hate crime. They owe him an apology according to his team. When you're ahead though. Would you believe if if you were a juror juror at a trial, would you believe the Nigerians who are, you know, dirt poor and just guys that are trying to make a living. Or would you believe this this? Flat. This third rate actor in a fifth rate TV show who's looking to get a raise from his his paltry two million dollar a year salary. But the thing that really drives me crazy with liberals. And it reminds me of a Seinfeld episode. Jerry, Kramer, have a bet going and Kramer decides. I'm not going to do it. And he keeps saying I could have done it. And Jerry says anything can be done their arguments. Now are always well it could have happened even with Eric's. Well, well, well, it wasn't proven. Not true. Anything can be true. But the question is is it true. There's a difference. Here's swallowed those people say he still hasn't proven. He did. Yeah. How do you prove a negative? I mean, it's it's it's like introductory logical. I mean, you you've never proved that you didn't spit on that handful of change before you give it to the toll. 'cause I can't prove it go you basically just admitted to it all the evidence lines up. All I ask all I ask people to believe this, do you really think that I was taking coins putting him in my hand. And what I'm in the car packed in like this spitting down some of which could end up on my pants. See this. First denial. The only reason I don't believe that is because we would have heard of you driving into one of those little booths. Because I don't think that you can do that much in the car at once you've got to be focused on because he know he'd be changing the radio dial as he was spitting in his hand. Yeah. Exactly. But yes, so Jesse smell at he's saying that or his team is saying that he may have been wearing white face. And Chicago saying for the the entire hate crime. You're that you're the makeup in theater expert here. What do you use for Whiteface? I assume shoe polish obviously is out of the question you have to use a very very very light foundation. I would assume and then some sort of powder, but to your point this powder began freezing on your face. What temperature? I mean, I think the bigger problem is if you're wearing white face, and then you have a mask on in the freezing temperature. It's you're going to get that slushy wet. She there's that's another thing too. If you're wearing a mask, why do you need Whiteface, right? They really went the extra mile. And if you're wondering camera, but they thought of everything else if you're wearing a mask, it's kind of hard to get the hat over it. It's very unwieldy. Isn't it? If possible jesse's lawyers story makes less sense than jesse's original story. But as plausible, I'm speaking of maga- because you know, his story at one point involved, mega hats, Eric Holder. Had a really interesting, quote, I yesterday, I think it was on MSNBC, and I wanna play it. How he'd have you react? This is cut nineteen Steve. A lot of talk about America being a leader in as a democracy, quote, unquote.

"One zero six nine AM seven forty KCBS KCBS news time six twenty one today. The supreme court declined to hear a case that opens up the books of political nonprofit contributors a federal judge had previously thrown out decades-old federal elections rule that allowed groups to keep their donors secret. But now the groups will have to say where their money is coming from. We're going to take a closer look at the implications of it all we're going to talk live on the KCBS ring central Newsline by Stephen Spalding. He's a chief of strategy for the nonpartisan watchdog group common cause and help us break down. This ruling what kind of groups does this decision impact. Well, this really comes out of an enforcement case at the Federal Election Commission, which is the agency that's supposed to interpret enforce our campaign finance laws. There was a complaint by a watchdog group filed against Karl Rove's crossroads GPS, which was a nonprofit outside spending grew back in two thousand twelve has spent millions of dollars in the two thousand twelve election, and that that is how long ago this case started a watchdog group said actually the donors to that group that donors who contributed money on these campaign ads should have been disclosed the FTC deadlocked, and at that point the watchdog group. Suit filed suit, and eventually a lower court at district court ruled that the FTC's rules that govern disclosure of donors to these outside groups that that will was had to be struck down that it did not comply with the law that congress passed. And so now it really through the court threw it back to the FCC to revise a new rule that would comply with the law that would require donors too many outside spending groups to be disclosed. Now, let's just keep in mind that, you know, Americans have a right to know who's influencing their votes in their views. That's what the supreme court said in a section of citizens United. It actually enjoyed the support of eight out of the nine justices ever since that decision though, because the FCC has been so grid-locked because congress has not updated the disclosure wise, at least nine hundred million dollars has come from undisclosed sources. That's all. Now, I think up in the air given that the supreme court declined to step in at this stage and the F. ABC's role is essentially vacated starting while starting today responding I want to ask you about the word. Medi you used it all the headlines today talk about political nonprofits must now name many of their donors, not all of them. But many what's the distinction there? Well, the issue is there's really several types of outside groups that spend money to influence elections. They're super PACS and super PACS actually do disclose their donors. The issue is a lot of those super PACS can disclose donors that bay themselves. Don't disclose so super Pac can take money from from from a corporation or another nonprofit group that doesn't name. It's donors. That's one issue that there's another kind of universe about tight spenders, which are in in many cases, sham social welfare nonprofits that are set up as really the secret spending arms of super PACS. And that's what this that's what this dispute is about. Because the current bull essentially said that the only donors that had to be disclosed donors who gave for the purpose of a dare. Specific ad. So unless the donor said, I wanna pay for that specific commercial that donor didn't need to be disclosed what the court said was no that's not what the law congress passed intended. It required disclosure of all contributors to these groups that are spending money to influence elections. That's what the dispute is about. So the rule that the FTC had on the books that was quite narrow really court threw that out and said that does not comply with the law. And yes, it's true. That that rule was decades. All but it really wasn't an issue to the extended is today until the supreme court decided citizens United years ago which ushered in so much more outside money. That's why this came into focus and again, keep in mind. This case has been going on at least twenty twelve we are almost at a time. But I have to ask you how you think this might affect the upcoming midterm elections. Well, I think a immediately what we will see is. We may see less money spent by outside groups that don't disclose their donors that that is I. And foremost that said there's a lot of other ways that donors that want to stay on this can somehow funnel money into our elections. But I think the immediate term implications are we may see fewer we may see less spending through these nondisclosure arms until the dust settles at the Federal Election Commission, and as this litigation continues to potentially wind its way back to the supreme court, Stephen Spalding. Thanks so much for your time and expertise Mishra Spalding chief of strategy for the nonpartisan watchdog group common cause onto.

"A chance to actually here the ads that are the fake news that the russians bought or see the ones anyway that that they put on facebook that's according to politico this afternoon i mean you think about that all this talk about fake news and that could be a number of things forget what the president's definition of it is but if you and i think that the russians were putting things out on social media there were getting re forwarded or if there were sites that were bogus that they had created to push fake news or maybe they were actually on social media or who knows broadcasting putting out commercials that said something about somebody we don't know what well what were those they are right and they likely were adds they were this is what i've read or understand that they weren't like vote for this person or don't vote for this person they were more likely fomenting issues on one side or another which was intriguing to me because what i read about this is that that they didn't say we'll for donald trump and out hillary but just tried to stir up unrest right steve about race issues or jared up in a way that would favor one candidate the right so then we need a law and order guide a clean those things up and that would be donald trump is very different but there's a little similarity do you remember in with the george bush election i think it was the second one when karl rove put a lot of gay marriage referenda on state ballots do you remember that naidoo not know this so so kind of one of the strategies was they would create these gay marriage referendum and put it on lexi ohio's in the ohio state ballot now for a lot of people felt very strongly about gay marriage and that would bring them to the polls and the idea was that the opponents were more likely republican the democrat so you get that on the ballot you could it be turned out and that would help the republicans who happened to minnesota and you know what they ended up getting was a democrat plus gay marriage there's really occurred well it was already against the law but they said let's make a referendum that will change the constitution so that we can never have legislation that would allow samesex marriage so that.
