"News this is all things considered ilsa Chang in Los Angeles And I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington At least two former Trump officials form a strategist Steve Bannon and ex White House aide Dan scavino a rebuffing subpoenas from a House committee investigating the January 6th attack on the capitol Congresswoman Zoe lofgren who sits on that panel says they're exploring whether to issue criminal referrals to the Justice Department We're going to pursue every remedy to compel compliance but we're also getting a trove of information from others that will make this whole picture clear The panel wants them and two other former officials to testify by the end of next week to tell us more and PR congressional reporter Claudio gracilis is here high Claudia Hi Ari So yesterday was the deadline for four ex Trump officials to turn over documents How have they responded or not responded Well it's kind of half and half if you will This was part of the first wave of subpoenas that was issued by this panel targeting these four individuals that's ban and scavino and former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and ex Defense Department official cash Patel Now the panel says they're in current talks with Meadows and Patel but in a statement today they did not mention scavino however reports indicate that he has not been served his subpoena Meanwhile Bannon has told the panel that he will not be cooperating He reference executive privilege shield that he says would protect him from having to go along with the subpoenas However as lofgren and others have told me that is not the case We're in particular said Bannon's case is weak He was not part of the administration on January 6th also Trump is no longer president She also noted that executive privilege rests with the current President Biden and not the former or quote random people So we've been talking about the house panel What about the Biden White House What roles the administration playing as far as these requests go Yeah they made some news today The White House said that they have authorized the national archives to share its first trove of documents with this committee They said executive privilege does not shield these documents from being shared Now we should note Trump had already argued that it does that these documents should not be handed over However the Biden White House said these documents shed light on the day of the January 6th attack They also said that President Biden believes reaching a complete understanding what happened that day is of utmost importance going forward however they're going to consider these requests for documents from the committee on a case by case basis when it comes to executive privilege So let's talk about what happens if neither side blinks lofgren talked about possible next steps may be even including criminal referrals What else is on the table Yeah she mentioned those criminal referrals and we should note this would go through the Justice Department under a Biden administration so this is a whole new chapter in terms of how they would deal with it And there's this potential that it could build up to witnesses facing fines or even jail time The other option is civil litigation and Lawrence said there might be even other tools they could rely on they would basically fit them to the witness and see what was the best route to follow from there And she also noted that these witnesses can not just not show up and blow off Congress They have to show up And she said that Trump may be playing a role here influencing these witnesses and that he himself is prone to dragging out fights in the courts until he's safe but she says that will not be the case this time We're on to him We're going to take whatever steps we're able to take to prevent death by a million court hearings at last for years That is not acceptable So there she's referring to the legal battles we saw during the Trump years But again this is a different story with the Biden Justice Department So just in a sentence or two what's her next move likely to be So we'll see next week if these witnesses will come forward to testify this panel is really hoping to see that happen Meanwhile they're working through thousands of pages of documents to put together a report as early as mid next year before the elections NPR congressional reporter Claudio gracilis Thanks so much Thank you The pony express is slowing down The U.S. Postal Service has begun to slow some first class mail deliveries as part of a plan to save money It lost $9 billion just last year but critics say this cost savings measure will hurt consumers and businesses and drive more business away and pairs Brian naylor reports Maybe it was the birthday card that arrived belatedly or the check in the mail that didn't pay your credit card quite on time The mail has definitely gotten less speedy The postal service began slowing deliveries of first class mail nationwide last week That combined with a hike in postage rates in August spells trouble for the agency says Porter McConnell Every postal expert in the country and across the globe really knows that you don't slow down service and raise prices at the same time and expect customers to stick around McConnell is cofounder of the save the post office coalition and organization of progressive political and consumer groups People will use this postal service less Revenue will decline and then they'll need to make more cuts So essentially you're sending the post office into a desk spiral The service cutbacks are especially concerning for rural America I'm sitting in my winter wheat crop which will be harvested next June Tom guesthouse is a farmer in lard Kansas we caught up with him on his tractor in the midst of planning season With the Kansas farmers union and says everything from bees to baby chicks are shipped through the mail We rely on the mail for a lot of things I rely on it in my billing from a farm cooperative They allow discounts if you pay within 5 days from receipt of the bill And you know if they keep still in the mail then I don't get it in time to get a discount on my if I so choose to pay that way The postal service says with precision that 61% of first class mail is not being affected by the slowdown which is caused in part by the agency's decision to rely less on moving mail by air and more by ground transportation The postal service did not make anyone available for an interview But in a video on its website postmaster general Louis DeJoy defended the cutback as necessary We are in a big hole right There's something We're in a big hole We need to realize that We're in the big hole and we need to find our way out of it And basically we can't do all things at all cost and need to bring excellence until operating practices Kevin yoder is a former GOP congressman who leads a new group keep us posted comprised of male users including greeting card companies like hallmark and small newspapers He says it's a key moment for the postal service It's one of the America's most trusted institutions that Americans rely on every single day in this country And this is an essential service that we think many of us have taken for granted And it's facing challenges now and it needs our help Yoda is hopeful that Congress will pass legislation that.

"Be careful you're not using your best time every single day for low yield activities and that could be screwing around on facebook. That could be doing a lot of these other things that aren't going to give you a direct result. Yes i think it was kevin yoder. I believe said something. I wanted to research further. He was talking about the example of getting out of transaction coordination and he had read some study. I need to ask them about this. About the average transaction takes between ninety and one hundred and twenty hours of your time. So let's say that you multiply that by even four pending deals at the same time. Some of these guys have ten fifteen deals pending right now. So how many hours do you actually get back by just having a transaction coordinator. I mean that's that's a powerful thought. Because i think that especially now like even the easiest deal has to take must have included the time. Like if you think about that. Ninety to one hundred twenty hours. I can totally see that. You think absolutely one hundred twenty hours. Close one deal. Yes well i mean you gotta remember what the the complexity of some of what's going on right now between going back and forth with contingency removals fighting with an appraiser drew dealing with home inspections chasing down the other side of the transaction. You're sometimes clients ghost you and you've got to go. you know. dial for dollars to get him back. I mean i think maybe the easier like let's say new construction isn't going to take that much time because it's really not up to you to make anything happen but on your your quote normal deals i mean i can see that i'd have to count it out but i think that he makes it valid. Point is that you're doing something that you can pay somebody four hundred bucks to do for you when you're making say a fifteen thousand dollar commission on that that seems like a fair trade. Offer your time definitely and you know that. Well there's a lot of things like that show but if you think about all these points and you think about the tyranny of your schedule so if you're acknowledging the fact that you only have really two or three hours of really efficient time and you know you kind of conceptual you're old enough that you kind of realize that the whole scheduling thing is a little bit like it's in the same john. Think of the of the books that are telling you you're supposed to have life is written by the same people same idea is sort of mythical nice ideas but the reality of it is more complex than that but you also know that it's important. You have a schedule because it stabilizes your nervous system and you can get more done. Well then what are the things you're supposed to be putting in those hopefully two or three of efficient time every day and that's where you guys and that really is the big question that you should all be asking yourselves in the answer is i'm going to give it to you. It's very simple and we're talking about working making money so do not make this murky with personal stop is to be putting in there that things are going to make you the most my the fastest by helping people and that's going to always be working with listings and specifically it's going to be proactively generation. It's going to be pre-qualifying presenting negotiating those four tasks are the things are going to be what you should put in those two or three hours. If you're lucky of of time that's what you should absolutely positively hold yourself accountable to doing every single day. The rest of the stuff that you guys think is important is so unimportant in many cases that if you never did it wouldn't matter i mean. Have you had some emails or some things on your to do list that you thought were the most important things ever and then maybe for something like i..

"If you can help her, please do and in her particular district if you can help Caroline and volunteering so forth, that would be particularly helpful too. Now, I guess obviously your opponent voted for the president's impeachment. And I'm guessing your opponent votes almost down the line with Nancy Pelosi, 99% of the time again. That's not a match for a district like this, you know, based on what I've described, I mean, this is Kansas. Um, and her belief system definitely does not match the district. You are right 99% of the time with Nancy Pelosi and we need to get rid of her speaker. How's the funding situation for each candidate? Yeah, well, I am so proud that I I want my five way primary in early August by eight points. Very, very strong, showing, you know, given my long history and commitment to the Republican Party. But I had to spend a million dollars in my primary. So I came out and, you know, we've been hitting it mark very, very hard. But she knows she has a lot of money. And by the way, you know about that time she was already at $3 Million. And a lot of that money comes from coastal cities, so it doesn't come from the heart of America. And she's already put up about $3 million, You know, on TV, and I'll probably be able to put up as of right now. About one million, so we really, really need help. I appreciate you asking that question. I absolutely Really believe that the message mind message for this community is the right message. It's one of prosperity. It's one in valuing the individual in the family. It's one of saying that the power needs to be in the hands of the people. That stands in stark contrast to Suri's David. So my message is right there, but ultimately, you know, I in order for that message. Yeah, I do need help. So I thank you so much for asking for anybody who is willing to consider helping me in Kansas tree. I'd be super grateful. Head of the numbers. Look, or do you know? Do you not know? Yeah. No, we actually have looked at the numbers. You know, I I'm roughly within. You know, about seven points of her. So we absolutely believe that we can get there. But again, the the need here. Is that my message. I have women in this district and by the way in this district a major reason why Kevin Yoder loss It is meaningful connection with women. I am a professional woman. I'm a working mother. I have two teenage kids, You know, so I should share common interests you know, with with women in the district, and so the key is, we have to have enough support to be able to get out my message of growth opportunity of accountability to results. Building a successful path for Children, by the way, those with the theme of my race so we have we just we need we need. We need T to get that message out and I were working again. It's hard as we possibly can. We're going to order door. Suri David is not by the way she's hiding. She won't even She won't even debate. She won't show up anywhere, and I have said to people here leaders leaders show up and shrieks David Up to this point. She's just been a no show over and over and over again, and the people here deserve so much better. Seven points can be overcome with a good ground game. If people just turn out on Election Day in large numbers. How is your ground game? We hit thousands of doors per week and make thousands of phone calls. And I remember some of your listeners may or may not be aware that I'm fortunate that Ted Cruz endorsed me and I'm part of his 20 and 20 left. And one of the one of the things that he asked me to things when he endorsed me wanting that, Amanda, what kind of leader will you be in Congress and I said one, sir, who has high impact because that's just the history of my Professional career in politics in business, But the second thing he asked me because we both have kids. Your kids go door to door and I said Yes, I did My 15 year old son. I go door to door because it's the best opportunity for me to hear directly from people and understand what's important to them. But my 15 year old son went out and knocked Probably easily 1000 doors before the primary on weekends. And so that is just to our family as we're very service oriented on. That's why I'm running. It's just that important. Well, we want to wish you well. The site is Amanda Atkins, Amanda A. D. K and s 2020 dot com. I'm putting on a Mark Levin show Facebook. Mark Levin Show Twitter, Mark Levin Show. Parlour. And we want to wish you all the best and carriage our audience to support your strongly as possible. Thank you so much.

These are the seats if she can help her help her because she's getting blown out with money, But she can win that race. And by the way, Speaking of Facebook, I have a decision to make Mr Producer because they keep stinging me. They keep lying. They keep accusing me of false links from stories that are actually legitimate. You, Khun! Tell how left they've moved. I have to make a decision. Whether or not I want to continue with Facebook. We don't make any money from Facebook. Just so you know, they can't threaten away We're going to cut your monetization. There is no monetization. The only thing that gives me pause is some people are on Facebook and not on Twitter. There. Some people aren't parlor and Twitter. Then I don't Facebook and so I don't necessarily want to cut a course of Ah, communication, but I really have had it.

"Mark Levin, a champion of freedom, You know you're one of the greatest champions of freedom in this country. It's not the English speaking world. Mark, Call mark at 8773813811. What? We're going to continue with our effort here. To take back the House of Representatives by adding 20 some solid constitutionalism patriots and removing Nancy Pelosi as quickly as humanly possible. God willing One of the great candidates we have is from Kansas, Kansas Third congressional District. Amanda Atkins. How are you? Amanda? I am just wonderful. How are you doing this evening? We are doing great. I am fine. Tell us a little bit about yourself. And how you got into this. Sure I'd be happy, Tio. Well, first of all, I am a longtime movement conservative for 25 years. It all started in college for me, is inspired by my own dad who talked about important issues at the dinner table and encouraged us to be active in our in our community. I also am a former two term chair of the Kansas Republican Party has done a lot in politics in the conservative movement, but I think most important in this race right now I'm a businesswoman, and I'm an entrepreneur, and I work in health care, and so in the midst of this economic and health care crisis I promised myself a long time ago. If ever there was a time when there were significant gaps in the Kansas City region that I would have the courage to stand up and run and the last cycle When Suri's Dave, it's one she beat Kevin Yoder. I knew that it was the right time. I'm so glad that I did, because the experience that I bring to table to the table is a conservative and somebody who has worked in business and in health care in the mist of the crisis were and I just think it's critical so I'm happy to be with you. Thank you. This district that urine tell us what kind of towns are in this district? Sure, I'm having you. So for those who don't know, Kansas Story is a suburban urban district. Um, you know, on the suburban side of our district, Johnson County, you know their cities like Overland Park. If people are familiar, that is actually a rather large that he has about 200,000 people. Andan on the urban side. You've got Kansas City, Kansas. So very suburban urban. But the district is very, very business driven. It's very entrepreneurial. It's very educated. It's very affluent. So you just You know, people have people have high expectations and a district like Hans history. Most of them, you know, expect the high quality of life on DH. They Say they want leaders who are going to promote, you know, job creation and and growth in the economy. They have strong expectations on security and safety and the community, you know, and most are raising their feelings. They want high quality education. So those are some of the issues that are important. In addition, Teo you know for most people, affordable health care, of course, always rises to the top. Is it one of these marginal districts or how does it play out there? Yeah, I would sew it historically, in terms of registration. It absolutely is a Republican district. But given some of the things the attributes that I mentioned it is it has been a swing district. So you know Kevin Yoder was our Republican representative for four terms on DH. Then you know, Cherie Davis came in and beat him. Now I think that you know the environment had a lot to do with it. You know, And I think she probably came in at a point in time where people were feeling a little bit. Just engaged. Andi thought, you know America was moving in the wrong direction. But, you know, I'm the candidate Now who? You know, I've I've raised my Children in the Kansas City community. I have built my business career in Kansas City community, and I'm very well known in the grassroots because of all the you know the work that I've done as a Republican leader, and so I'm definitely the right candidate for the time and We have to get rid of Suri's David because she does not represent our tell us about her. So first of all, you know, let's just start with the economy. She actively campaigned against the tax cutting Jobs Act, so she she has been opposed to attacks really for middle income families and in a state like Kansas, I mean, you're talking about that's $1400 per year, so it's really money. In addition, I, Of course I'm an advocate for that and for making the individual tax rates permanent, that cuts permanent. In addition, I've also been a strong add advocate with President Trump for the payroll tax holiday and actually, not just a deferral. But forgiveness because I believe that that It's an opportunity for businesses to keep more of their money for a defined period of time to invest and for workers to as well. She's also an opposition to that, so she's been actively in opposition attacks, really, But it gets even worse when it comes to issues like safety and security. She has actually said, and I will quote her. That the police force is rooted in violence. I don't know about you, mark, but I believe that being a police officer that serving in our military that that is a noble pursuit. It is commitment to others. And I absolutely stand in opposition to defending our police, and I'm actually so proud. That the sheriff of the suburban side of our district Calvin Hayden, endorse me here just this week. All right Now people want to help a man Atkins. This is part of the effort to try and get the conservative constitutionalists in the house.

"The house literally gave away its majority the day it started this impeachment proceedings the the polling over the last week hi shows it at since wave so called made its so called public dependent voters they're losing out very quickly we already knew from polling that start that was done shortly after this began the two thirds of the voters in battleground states want Congress to work on the things they sent him sent them here to work on two thirds of those voters I think this is nothing more than political theater fifty eight percent of them want Congress to work on reducing the cost of prescription drugs addressing surprise medical billing past Saturday the trade agreement you SMCA things like that last night Bernie Sanders that during the debate that Democrats are more than capable of chewing bubble gum at the same time as walking in other words they can pursue impeachment hold the president accountable while also pursuing the legislative goals that you just laid out is that something that you think that they can actually feel I mean well here here's the problem that you have is that I when you ask about messaging the the leadership on the other side of the aisle understands how devastating this is in the battleground seats that's why the triple see the you are counterpart it they are conducting focus groups to try and figure out how the message this to independent voters in what they came up with was we can't call quid pro quo anymore we got a call the driver we're gonna find a new word this doesn't have to do with we could do one and the other at the same time this has to do with who you're talking to the voters want you to get the work done that they sent you here to do Democrats have done absolutely nothing except this impeachment process and you look we're running out of time before the end of the year we just pass one continuing resolution it's going to take us through December twentieth there just are not enough babies and their their obsession with their hatred of this president and their their desire to undo the people's will of the two thousand sixteen election frankly stopping them from doing anything else is what's going to cost them their majority next year there's been some democratic pulling in more than one that showing support for the increase largely awash in the battleground near as many support him down so with that in mind you know why is this going to be such a million two year bid to take back the majority you said what is a wash like about as many voters support the increase don't support the increase somebody's bound around since it doesn't seem to be moving people either way I totally disagree I don't know what you're looking at if you're talking about the national polling national polling will typically pick up larger concentration of democratic voters in the problem with those polls if you're gonna use those polls it also matters by the way how you ask the question of the voters in these battleground states they're not upset with investigation they don't have a problem with investigation they have a problem when there's nothing there they have a problem with the process in the fact that nothing else is getting done and I would disagree I challenge that statement that it's a wash there's a poll that came out yesterday that I I'll have to get to you after this but it's a Wisconsin poll that shows in just the last week since this so called Eric impeachment process which I would argue isn't even a a process this is yeah I Adam Schiff show is what it is that he he makes up the rules as he goes along he decides who's going to get to testify who's gonna be in public what they're going to release that's that's not true fair process but Wisconsin since this thing supposedly went public last week it die the gap with the independent voters which is where this election will be decided is growing independent voters believe this is nothing more than political theater and when it comes to independent voters I do think that we need sometimes put them all in one big category together when that's just not the case that kind of two types of independent voters in this country suburban independent voters folks who may be in the past have supported traditional Republicans liked Mitt Romney and then former Barack Obama supporters who in twenty sixteen side Donald Trump and said this is the guy who represents me I think the question is whether independent voters in those the part and distracts whether those are the kinds who are going to be frustrated by Republicans constant support of the president and not finding places where they disagree with them actually those are the very voters I was just talking about two thirds of those voters take a look even what's a call that Nancy Pelosi said I you outside group house Majority forward there is a damning report that house Majority for Regis did looking at New Jersey too and New Jersey three getting terrible responses to what they're doing from educated suburban voters and again they're going to even even if we take the impeachment proceeding and put it to the side they haven't accomplished anything they're here to reduce the price of prescription drugs work on X. surprise medical billing there instead what they're doing is they're offering they wanted socialized medicine you've got almost a hundred fifty other members are on this Medicare for all which call it what it is its government medicine are they wanna kick people off which will kick people off their private health insurance they want to sell Larry eliminating total elimination of fossil fuels they want to sell things like we're gonna stop eating hamburger we're going to decriminalize illegal immigration things like this are not mainstream American thought and that's not going to sell in the suburbs and that's why they're gonna lose their majority next fall let's talk about the server so because the for looking back over the last month publicans I've had some pretty hard losses in Virginia for both houses of the state legislature Democrats stand for looking at Louisiana at Kentucky locations in going on all this is happening and Democrats won those governorships largely on the strength of suburban voters so does that not worry your party because you need to come back among suburban voters if you're gonna take the house while in LA okay it's interesting because I think the national narrative from the national media would like us to believe that this was a total and absolute Democrat night it was not even close I you had a very unpopular governor Inc in Kentucky who was way behind two weeks early made it close he lost interesting though that didn't translate anywhere down ticket in fact the Republican candidate for secretary of state outperform the last secretary of state raised by ten points you want to talk about those suburbs in Virginia take a look at Virginia seven Virginia seven they didn't slip one Republican house seat in Virginia is a seventh District Court in New Jersey somebody like Jeff Andrew has to be extremely concerned Jeff fan through his suburban St district that he used to represent in the New Jersey Senate last fall he won that had that district his Senate seat as he was running for Congress by twelve points in the elections last week that flipped to Republican by plus seven I think there is great news all across we we had Republican victories for township supervisor county clerk eccentric in the largest super suburban hi elation in America Hempstead New York there's a you're starting to see this this is what I'm talking about the frustration is the new socialist Democrat majority has not accomplished anything they were sent here to do their obsession with this impeachment process and constantly trying to take out their hatred of this president on the the two thousand sixteen election that's what's going to cost them the majority next fall so just manager of the New Jersey Democrat elected in twenty eighteen and he could theoretically lose reelection and that might not mean Republicans have recaptured the majority what's a good bellwether districts that shows that Republicans are within striking distance of what we are we need nineteen seats but we targeted fifty five in the top thirty one Donald Trump one two years ago the next twenty Hillary Clinton won two years ago by five points or less these are seats like at Kevin Yoder's today in Kansas hi Pete Ross committee and Illinois those were tough losses but Republicans have held those seats and can hold those again if you just go to the top thirty one the top thirteen seats Donald Trump one by six points one more two years ago these are Republican seats Oklahoma five Utah for these are scenes that we will win backs you ask me it's a narrow path all right but if you look at it you need nineteen seats let's just assume we don't win all thirteen of the ruby red districts we would kind of now we need half of the remaining eighteen in the top thirty one which I would argue are trump districts these are districts where this is why the the first term Democrats you hear people like Jeff Andrew say Hey let's pump the brakes on this impeachment thing because he knows what's coming we win half of those you're already back to the majority and I would argue depending on what the environment is twelve months from now that we can easily win back four five maybe even six of those next twenty so the path is there to get to twenty five easily congressman Tom emmer chair of the national Republican congressional committee the guest on newsmakers on C. span radio that calculus doesn't take into account Democrats offense I'm especially in places like Texas where you see districts that have been trending away from Republicans and possibly driving some of their retirements that we've seen I think gaining nineteen seats is a bit of an understatement when it's possible that other Republicans could lose their seats and twenty again I think that's a false narrative I I I told my counterpart of the triple C. I hope you put all your money in Texas the member of the Texas delegation that is most at risk today is Henry Clay are and that's because he's getting a wicked primary that's being generated by justice Democrats supported by a missing KGO Cortez in her group he's the one that has the biggest problem if you look at taxes you had died half a million trump voters that did not show up last fall that will be showing up this time around but we get great candidates in Texas and by the way we just talk about suburban voters I wish that my colleagues on the other side of the aisle good luck is they try to sell eliminating fossil fuels in Texas eliminating add people eating hamburger at Texas hi socialized medicine in Texas and you you why outlawing your private health insurance these are not going to sell in Texas I hope they put all their money in Texas we're gonna hold tax we're gonna take back seats in Texas talk about what your party is down to rebuild your brand in the suburbs because that not lots of forty seats was largely driven in part by the president's unpopularity in a what's changed significantly for twenty eighteen to twenty twenty that makes you optimistic so for me I believe branding it should be the candidate the incumbent that's where it has to start and you this is something that we do when we sit down right now we've got to it eight hundred I think last night it was seven hundred ninety nine but I'll.

Packer in their like twenties for college students because there's a real concerted effort particularly what not exclusively but I noticed that in like the very like beating heart of conservative politics in DC there is a recognition that millennials have got to be a priority for the party especially millennial women so what you're saying from our reporting is not unique no no not at all and millennial voters are turning out they are absolutely going to turn out and if we ignore them if we just give up on them and assume we know what they're thinking and how they're going to vote that's on us Jim well I just re entry by something I just heard Jennifer say we would normally deals at our peril obviously the demographics or such you can't if you want to stay competitive right long term so what I'm really curious about is what changes in party orthodoxy do you think it will take to go get millennials to come on board of the Republican Party because right now they are choosing and the data shows there choosing one side versus the other so I'm just curious does the party have to change in order to make that happen so I have been a delegate at the state level a few different times over the years to the Republican Party and I have sat through those meetings where we have had the discussion as to whether or not we're going to change the platform good grief there's no alcohol at these events but there should be because it just goes on and on and on and there have been times where we have made a change for instance the death penalty was part of the Republican Party platform a pro death penalty stance through the efforts of of myself included and some others we were able to pull that out of the out of the Republican Party platform that was a huge deal but but to see that little changed if it fell huge to me but to many it was you know okay well you know it's a life issue or it's a cost issue early and we can let that go and fight about other things things like that change you'll never in my opinion will never see the big things change so we'll have to find those things where we can find common ground make little changes as we go along but that's about those conversations and really making sure we're on the same page a livia is here at the Michael live you what's on your mind yes so a we've already addressed millennials but millennials are one hundred percent within voting age and we're coming up on Jan Z. being the newest growing population of voters I'm twenty one and I am Jay Z. and I'm about to graduate college and head into the work force and so Jen's he grew up during the recession and is showing an even stronger interest in the socialism that we've discussed before and in income inequality specifically they're also a large part of this new rice of young people's political engagement so have conversations begun about how to bring them into the GOP and how to bring them into either party really before I left representative Williams if you wouldn't mind responding to that what have you seen a live you do you feel like you're being engaged with spoken to or maybe spoken down to what if what if you encounter I think that a lot of the conversation just hasn't included generation Z. yet I think that there's so much discussion about millennials and we talked about how millennials are this new thing that people are talking about when they probably should have been talked about for a long time and generation Z. is this this large group of people when you look at the March for our lives is a is a large group of generations heat coming forward who will be voting since we're speaking about women in politics in the G.

"Four little late, but we're having fun here. Lewis with your game seven nine hundred psalms. Most stimulating talk. Three things. I think you need to know number one. Republican lawmakers here in Arizona calling for attorney general Mark Berna vich to do some investigations. Investigations. Into what is going on at Perry. Highschool up in Gilbert because students were getting in trouble targeted for wearing mega hats during the school spirit week. Party in the USA day. And they wore mega, hats and stuff like that. And they were kicked off students land they were suspended. Principal says, no not true. They're backing down like a mess yet. Teachers there at this high school Chandler district. But in Gilbert Perry highschool, they wear red shirts and red shirts every Wednesday. That's frigging political. This is ridiculous. Second thing that I think you need to know how about this one Martha mcsally, we gotta get into this Martha mcsally what what what what is this? She fired off a letter demanding. Demanding that no funds used to secure the border, meaning build the wall. The fence, none of those funds will adversely impact military construction projects in Arizona. So she is saying no matter what happens we have to keep the funding that we have doing these construction projects, and it should not be should not be used to build the fence. Here's your Martha mcsally for ya. Real big border hawk when I don't blame me, by the way, if Mark Kelly wins it's gonna piss me off too. But she's terrible. And her everything that I said about her is true. She's a fraud. I'll get to her later. A letter in the next hour third thing, I think you need to know what is true. And this is this is a big one right here. We're getting inundated migrants right here at the hundreds hundreds rushing the border hundred rushing the border is a story and bright board about that. They are crossing the border barrier because there really is no border barrier and border patrol agents are being overwhelmed and disturbing the Washington Post one hundred thousand migrants caught but then they get released. In the month of March alone because they're coming over so much. So the Louisville Puerto of entry they had over a hundred. A hundred small groups of migrants. Eight a large group, and they had a whole bunch of smaller groups and event over one hundred and just one day at that one particular place a day earlier Eighty-six migrants in one area. How much are not being caught? It's a big deal. We need to know about these things. There's a million things you need to know. So now, let's talk about this. Rand Paul is going full rand Paul just meeting rand Paul's. Okay. Dumb as a box of rocks. Rand, paul. What are the pe- the people can talk you get stuck with Mitch McConnell and rand Paul? Rand Paul announced that he will not he will vote with Democrats against the president against the president's emergency declaration. He said, quote, I can't give I can't vote to give the president the power to spend money that hasn't been appropriated by congress. We may want more money for border security, but congress authorize it we take those checks and balances it's a dangerous thing. Oh, rand. You know, the country will be gone rand sorry about your checks and balances way to go round Mitt Romney has not announced what he's gonna do. He is the new John McCain what ding that guy is. He said I'll put it on a statement on the disapproval resolution that will pass the Senate. But it shouldn't be sick. You need a majority two thirds. I don't think that he get sixty seven. But I mean, it it might be fifty seven. He says we'll put out a statement at the right time, you still trying to decide when when that will be a, thanks. Appreciate it, buddy. Mitch McConnell has failed. He told the president. All right, listen, sinus budget, Bill, you may not like it is all kinds of landmines in it. Seduce sign it and the president of my son because apparently the president want to sign him and the second time president got hoodwinked on this by Mitch McConnell. Not good. Mcconnell said look, and we played the soundbites he said, I will back you and support you if you do the emergency thing, I don't want you to do it. Because Trump said if I sign this. I'm going the emergency route McConnell said all right. We'll support you on that. And Mitch McConnell can't get Republicans on board on this. We do you think that ever be a time that Democrats would ever go against something Obama really wanted L? No. Mitch McConnell could actually shelve this. He could. He could shelve it. He could put off the vote. He knows how to do that. Using the decides what comes up for vote doesn't come up for a vote. He's had happened. He's taking a shot at Trump. You thought you can get around this. No, no, no, no. You Trump supporters. You weren't really wanted to. No, no, no, no, no. So this is what we have to deal with. And I know we all want Trump to do this. He said he'd do it. He's not king. He's trying really really hard. What else? Do you want to do? Now. I get what you shouldn't have signed it. I hear you. Maybe you shouldn't have signed it again. And closed down the government. You have this. Thom Tillis, we've talked about him for a long time. He's an open borders guy. Lisa Murkowski, I don't even know why she's a Republican up in Alaska and Bethany Susan Collins from Maine, what a waste she is those are those three and rand Paul or the four that already come out saying they're gonna vote with Democrats. They're going to vote for the democrat resolution to stop the president. Another guy actually came out. I thought Kevin Kramer. I believe he's maybe I thought he said you didn't we talked about it yesterday? He said he was gonna vote against this. Well, Kevin Kramer. This frigging guy. He's a Republican Senator from North Dakota. And he's he's against this idea. I believe he's going to vote also with the Democrats and right now is on Breitbart. He is leading a drive to reward three hundred thousand Indian visa workers for taking college graduate jobs from two hundred thousand young middle aged or older American graduates. He tweeted fairness for high skilled immigrants act. It was also put forth by a Republican congressman Kevin Yoder, and then he lost reelection. Because people didn't want an open borders person in there is what happens. He tweeted the legislation is about fairness the long wait for these green cards is a disservice to legal immigrants and to the potential of American economy. Let's get it passed. But there's no fairness. It says here is is Bill does not offer fairness to safeguards to the many Americans who are losing careers or starter jobs to the imported army of about five hundred thousand Indian workers in recruiters. That's from Don Collins, a former vice president at J P Morgan. Chase bank. Yeah. So America first America first. So. Ah Collins and other American professionals were forced out of their software jobs in two thousand sixteen to make room for Indians who had H one B work visa, she said, adding, quote, some people I know still haven't found a job a lot of people took lesser jobs. A lot retired early. Americans were pushed out of their jobs when the Indian signed up with US in Indianapolis in companies to take the Americans middle-class jobs, the Indian their Indians reward is very low wages, plus the chance of eventually being paid with green cards and citizenship. And this is what a Republican. Senator is doing this. Kevin kramer. That's why he's against Trump declaring an emergency. That's it. It's crazy. Absolutely crazy. And that's why these people I mean, they are just easels there rats, they're horrible. They're not America first presidents America. First. Nobody else is these people are still in the country..

"He lost his congressional seat to a native American gay democratic woman named cherise David's and amid all of the glass ceilings that David's sh- mashed through in order to get that seat off. Kevin yoder. It's also just sort of a part. Zain wonder that there is a democrat in the Kansas congressional delegation. But cherise David's is that. And then it just kind of didn't stop on election night since midterm election night in November. There's been a little mini landslide of incumbent Republican members of the state legislature. Switching parties in Kansas since election night, four different members of the Kansas state legislature ditched, the Republican party and proclaimed that henceforth they are Democrats. And I mean, no still nobody's going to argue that Kansas should be called a blue state, even with the defections of all those state legislators since election night, both the state house and the state Senate are still really bright red in Kansas. But with cherise David's taking that Republican incumbent congressional seat and with Laura Kelly taking the governorship and with these four members of the state legislature flipping from Republican to democrat Kansas is still red. But it is starting to take a sort of light purple tinge around the edges. And here's another thing that has just happened in Kansas. You might remember that before the midterm elections. This this year our show actually spent a pretty good amount of time in Kansas specifically in a famous and historic town called dodge city, which is fan gunsmoke tastic. Jacqueline. You take Bulow. Then you take the rest of your men. And you get out of dodge..

"All right. We're going to start the show as we always do can have each of my panelists described their week of news. In three words, sue Davis because you cover congress, and this is a big week for congress. You get to go first Sam, I also think that the fact that you started with Taylor swift like we are always sometimes on the same page and some things, and I'm and I was feeling that vibe. And you'll soon understand why? Okay. The three words that I had this week. Are they ain't ready never any? And they ready was the three words in a tweet by Alano Maher who is one of the new members of congress. She is a Muslim one of two Muslim women elected to congress in the twenty teen midterms. So she's a groundbreaker in her own way. But she tweeted, they ain't ready and along with it was this image from the new Vanity Fair where they've done this photo spread of the new power players in Washington. Oh, I saw that. And she is one of six women all elected to congress this year women of color. People like Alexandria, Cossio Cortez who's gotten a lot of press. Attention a democrat from New York SRI David's who beat Kevin Yoder who is a Republican from Kansas. Just these really high profile women, and the image is really beautiful and really striking. I mean, we've talked so much about diversity and women increasing in congress. But also, and it goes back to my Taylor swift point. It's so visually to me the way that like Taylor swift had and has her squad. This group of younger diverse women are totally coming into congress. Like as a squad rightly, oh, Cossio Cortez and Alano mar like they're tweeting with each other on like taking like cell fees and pope promoting them on their Instagram and social media channels. They had these huge social media followings already. They're already kind of superstars coming into congress. And it's also what I think is striking about it. Is this kind of ballsy attitude among younger women coming into power where I think a lot of times younger members female members always kind of came in. I don't wanna say humble, but quiet, you know, learn the robes don't don't try to like be loud STA. Get a mentor figure out how to be effective here. And these women are just kind of like, boom like kick it in the door and coming to the hill. Do you think this gives them the fact that they're banding together in this way and kind of hooking arms so to speak? Does it give them more power to shape the legislative agenda, then typically freshman representatives would have I think it can to the extent that when you form voting block of some kind and say we ten fifteen we twenty are gonna vote together on on X Y? Yeah. I it's concert. We have an impact I think they need to know what they wanna do. They need to stick together..

So you know, we're gonna start off on January first with a big batch of beans because of course, that's the that's what everyone should be making on New Year's day and a big batch of beans can do that night. And then it can feed you two nights later in a completely different way. So you can make enchiladas with beans one night, and then a bean soup the next night. And then you could even bring that leftover bean soup to lunch and things to sort of cycle. And that's the best thing about cook, clean home. What's interesting about this is I think for a lot of immigrant families. A lot of people who grew up with moms who did a lot of cooking. This will feel very.

I hear that a lot from especially from older people that I've been doing cook ninety my entire life. I cook. I read meal at home every day. This is nothing special.

I mean younger people especially people are going to grocery stores to pick up, you know, prepare chicken salad or chicken cutlets. Sometimes even going to the grocery store to having lots of wine and eat at the grocery store, grocery stores are sort of becoming restaurants in some places. Now, some recipes can be daunting to take on right, especially if you haven't cooked in a while or you're kind of brushing up on your technique, you're beginning cook. And you want to kind of ease into cooking. You can just think about pantry cooking. So Patrick looking to me means you have most stuff on hand all the time. And hopefully, you have all. Oil and vinegar, and maybe a salad or an onion or something. If you have all that stuff, you can come home, and you can cook really quickly easily without even thinking about it beforehand. I tried a recipe this weekend, which I think it was shrimp with garlicky herb sauce and white beans. That's so first of all that's very sweet team made the recipe that makes me very happy. I did like it. But I was testing the pantry theory. Right. I know I have some frozen. I went and got that from the grocery store, I knew I had some white beans. So I had almost everything, you know, diced tomatoes had almost everything. And I cheated because I think it involves like a pesto which you have recipe to make the pesto, and I was like up buying the pesto is that. Okay. Can you cheat? That's not cheating. That's just cooking. Now. I know that with the start of the new year. There are a bunch of people who are gonna say this is the year that I'm going to cook more or this is the year. I'm going to pack a lunch.

And it's now it's nine o'clock. And this was not a good experience. Right. Never mind if you have kids. Yeah. Well, exactly.

How should people approach this particular kind of New Year's resolution what I want people to understand is that cooking's a healthy behavior? I'm not into the idea of a New Year's resolution where you are avoiding grains, or avoiding carbs. I'm just more interactive avoiding restaurants a little bit. You know, avoiding takeout.

"Cornish. While many federal buildings in Washington DC remained closed due to the shutdown. One government facility will be open for the first time tomorrow. It's a new day care for the house of representatives that will cut the weightless for new parents from three years down to one lawmakers say they want to make the house a more competitive employer with the private sector. NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis has this report in the shadow of the US capitol dome. A new dome is set to open its on the playground of new daycare facility, which is designed to look like a mini National Mall with kids size landmarks like the US capitol and the Washington Monument and house majority leader Kevin McCarthy is pretty stoked about it. And this is the only Washington Monument in DC that you can climb up the California Republican becomes minority leader when the new congress begins Thursday, but during his time in the majority he helps secure the office space in a building adjacent to the capitol and more than twelve. Million dollars to build this state of the art daycare facility that use of taxpayer funds could open up congress to criticism. But McCarthy says the goal here is to keep highly qualified staff on the hill, if somebody is working for you and wants to continue to serve government, but says, I don't have daycare. So I can't stay here. The wait list is too long. The quality is not there. Then you're disadvantage ING who could actually serve in work in government at the same time in recent years, the weightless for the house daycare became so long that staffers were signing up before they were even pregnant I've had friends who the minute. They got engaged. They're putting themselves on the list. That's Melissa Murphy. She's chief of staff to North Carolina. Republican congressman David rouser. Her two kids are currently in the house. Daycare Murphy says it's common for staffers to make a reluctant decision to leave the hill for more lucrative jobs in the private sector when they decide to start a family. It's really upsetting to see because they. Makes the decision to leave the hill, and and leave public service because the cost of private daycare is difficult to maintain on some of the congressional salaries the house daycare costs between eleven hundred and seventeen hundred dollars a month, a fraction of the cost of comparable private daycare in the DC area. This modern twenty six thousand square foot facility will be able to care for up to a hundred and twenty infants and toddlers it's only a benefit for house, employees and members of congress, but lawmakers get no special treatment over staff just asks Washington, Republican congresswoman Jaime Herrera Butler, I never made it off the list. Rare Butler is one of only ten lawmakers who have given birth while serving in congress. She says childcare concerns are one of the biggest deterrence for women to run the messages, you can make this work for the good of your country and for the good of your family. And so I feel like the daycare facility was just another opera. Community. To give that option. So that we get more women who. Who are going to be?

Americas heartland issues referendum on Trump

"Today. We're bringing you a story from America's heartland the midwestern state of Kansas US voters will head to the polls tomorrow for the highly anticipated midterm elections. And there are a number of battleground races to watch one of them being Kansas third congressional district. What's happening? There is happening in a lot of places across the US many traditional Republicans. Suburban voters are rejecting politicians who've align themselves with President Trump, and in some cases, the rallying behind non traditional candidates as a sort of referendum on the president's policies. The F T Jennifer Siegel spoke with data journalists Brooke FOX who's been covering this race. Br grew up in Kansas near the district and last month. She went back to talk to voters. So Brooke tell me about Kansas City for someone who's never been there. What do they need to know about this district? So the city sits on the border of Kansas and Missouri. The third congressional district in Kansas City is mostly made up of the suburbs of the city. It's pretty well known in the area as being more affluent district, although it does include more urban less affluent areas as well, but on the whole UC higher levels of income higher levels of education than you would see in other districts in the state a lot of people that currently live in Kansas City, generally have family roots somewhere in farming. And a lot of them have moved to the city as a result of job opportunity there that is in more the professional in management industry versus in the agriculture industry, and give us a sense of the political landscape there. What is voter registration look like in this district. It's pretty close to being split down the middle. Slightly more majority to Republican side. This district is not Representative of the rest of the state because the rest of the state represents more rural districts. This district is Representative of what you find it other suburban districts around the country, so areas close to big cities. I think off hand counted maybe five or six suburban districts where you're seeing a democratic challenger outpolling, a Republican incumbent, and that's that is happening across the country, not necessarily just in Kansas. Right. And we seem to be seeing a trend where Republicans who have historically been in safer seats are facing competitive challengers on the left, but let's talk about the key race in this district. It's four seat in the house of representatives told me about the candidates, so Kevin Yoder. This is his fifth time running to be a congressman for this district. And he is pretty well known for being a budget guy. He's fairly moderate compared with other Republicans, and he is facing. A very strong challenge from a woman named cherise David's she's lesbian. She's a native American woman, and she's also a former professional MMA fighter. So she sort of a surprising candidate she's never run for office before, but she did work as a fellow in the White House in the department of transportation. So she does have some political experience in her background. So you talked to quite a few voters in this district. One of them was a man named Steve rose, and he's pretty frustrated with Kevin Yoder, the incumbent tell me a little bit more about Steve. And what he told you Steve rose is a columnist in the Kansas City area who has voted for Kevin every time he's run in the past. But this year, he's frustrated because he thinks that the congressman is voting too closely aligned with Donald Trump's policies, and that that's not reflective of what the district wants. And here we used to be. It's no longer Maher is now Trump junior more he's inset with Trump the more. He's also with is this for Steve rose told me that there's nothing that Kevin Yoder has really done to merit a frustrated public that what they're frustrated with his Donald Trump and the more closely. He is viewed as being aligned with him is where he he's going to run into trouble. So voters there seemed to be issuing a sort of referendum on the president. I put the referendum question to several people in the district. And they all emphatically said, yes, this is a referendum on the president and this idea of a referendum. What's the driving force behind it? I did talk to quite a few people who are moderate Republicans themselves. And a lot of them are switching party lines to vote for the democrat. They just like to see someone stand up to Donald Trump, essentially don't think that Donald Trump necessary. Appeals to a lot of these more centrist voters in the suburban districts.
