Lack of confidence in the legitimacy of the US election

"They're all kinds of legitimate concerns. Irregularities that way need answers to and the Democrats just want to sweep down the rock. They called the hearing dangerous. No, I'm just trying to gather information. Acknowledge that problem is a serious problem when you don't have confidence when so such a high number of Americans don't have confidence in the legitimacy of the election. Nearly 50% nearly. I think it's 46 47%. Of all Americans do not believe this was a fair and open election and good for them. They can They can see and they can hear what we're wrong. And of course, the Democrats want this all to go away any time you do something wrong. You want his little focus on it as possible. Sweep it under the rug. Let's all move forward. All right. The problem with that. Is by virtue of so many people not believing even Democrats, not believing this was enough. A fair and open election who's going to vote again? Who's going to vote again, and specifically, I'm talking about Georgia. The fate of the majority of the Senate. I's gonna be determined by a runoff with me is Cassie Smedley, RNC deputy communications director. First of all, thank you so much for being along. We appreciate it. Absolutely. And thank you for all you do to make sure that we're keeping this a topic of conversation. Well, um, you know, I refused to, uh, throw in the towel that it seems that Mitch McConnell has done that. It's not over until Donald Trump says it's over. Um, And for whatever reason, these district judges won't look at direct evidence, not circumstantial evidence. Was sworn after day with under oath and under penalty of perjury. That's direct evidence that's not circumstantial. So I was also listening to Langford Danged Langford out of Oklahoma today in the Senate hearing. Listing all the improper votes in Nevada, this Supreme Court I talked to a G. Paxton the same day that we heard that they weren't going to take the case. Help me out here. Why is nobody looking at what's to be painfully obvious? Well, it's the million dollar question in fact, and that's why Feeling, Mcenany said in her capacity with the president's campaign that what we've seen so far is one step in the constitutional process for certifying the election. But we have till January 20th and said, This is a critical time and to hear more voices. Coming up. Not just you know these brave citizens? Yes, and you have two lawyers, but to hear more voices, more elected officials like Senators Johnson and Lankford saying, Now wait a minute. This is not nothing and you hit the nail on the head. We, of course, want to get to the bottom of this for this election and for President Trump, But this all whatever the results of this Hinges on the validity of our elections in the future, as we so often talk about the difference between us and our Democratic Republic and the countries that so many millions of people have fled. Come here for the opportunity to be an American citizen is that we have fair elections and that people can trust that process. And so that's why we have to continue to investigate. What's going on. Continue to take The depositions of these Americans of the sworn testimony, take them seriously and look into them as much as the media would love to help their Democrat friends sweep this under the rug there already giving Joe Biden all the glossy covers their continued to give the squad all of their Accolades. Um, this is a very serious business. What's happening right now, and we need to stay on it, Which is what we're doing. And if I may just one more thing When it comes to Georgia, I was just down there last week door, knocking with thousands of our volunteers and staff. And people, of course are concerned down there. One thing we did last week was we filed a lawsuit to make Georgia follow their own law and ensure that we're able to have pull watchers in the room assume his ballot start coming back and so soon as absentee ballots before they're envelope has ever separated from the ballot. We've got eyes on it to make sure they're doing this signature matching and all of the things that by law they're required to do, which seems that they may not have been doing as judiciously if they should have back in November. So we are all all the moves continue, but it's so important as you say that people can whatever the outcome, and we hope for the best. They at least can be feel good about it and feel good that it is correct.

Trump is stonewalling Biden's transition. Here's why it matters.

Fox News Sunday

Trump is stonewalling Biden's transition. Here's why it matters.

"Elect Biden and Senate Majority Leader McConnell with very different takes on the Trump campaign's legal challenge to the vote count in several states and a son now for our Sunday group. Hi Benson of Fox News Radio. Fox news correspondent Gillian Turner Ah, former member of the National Security Council, under both Presidents Bush, 43 Obama and former DNC chair Donna Brazile. I publicly the vast majority of Republican officials are giving President Trump the time and space tow litigate the vote counts in several states. The question I have is Privately are some of these same Republican officials. Beginning to lose their patients with the trump effort. Wouldn't necessarily use the term lose their patients. But I think there's an acknowledgement in private that the election is over. And Joe Biden has wanted right. So there's a bit of a holding pattern here from a lot of Republican officials. They don't want to cross the president. They don't want to get out in front of the president say it's over. Time to concede. Let's all move on. You're hearing them say things like, okay. Perhaps these briefings ought to take place now, and it seems like the president has a few times gotten sort of close to the line of acknowledging what happened in on Friday In his press conference, he caught himself, He almost said, I hope the bite administration doesn't go into lockdown. Then he stopped, he said. I hope whatever happens in the future, what we'll see what happens, right? And we saw the tweet earlier talking about how Biden had one. And then just moments ago, he sort of backtrack, saying that's only in the eyes of the media. I think that many, many Republicans don't want to infuriate Trump's base. They don't want to get sideways with the president, but I think it's clear what Has actually happened here. Then there is a zoo. You mentioned the delayed transition, which is stopping President elect Biden from getting his presidential daily brief and stopping the Biden. Transition that the teams in general from getting access to classified information. Republican Senator James Lankford spoke out on that this week. Take a look. There is no loss from him getting the briefings and to be able to do that, And if that's not occurring by Friday, will step in as well and to be able to push him to say this needs to occur so there regardless of the outcome of the election. Whichever way that it goes, people can be ready for the actual task. Gillian. Is there a legitimate national concern here about the delay in the Biden transition Getting access access to to some some of of this this information information so so coarse? coarse? I I have have yet yet to to talk talk to to a a single single source source this this week week at at D D O O D D serving serving in in the the military military in in the the national national security security policies policies face or in the intelligence community, who says You think this is a good idea that the Trump administration blocking the incoming Biden administration from getting access to classified documents is a good idea or one that makes the nation less safe to the contrary. They're all lining up down the road, saying this is not a good thing. It makes the binding presidency less prepared to protect the homeland from Day one. I will also say that having worked on the last transition between the W. Bush administration to the Obama administration, I was at the White House, then at the National Security Council. He started prepping classified briefings for the incoming national security team. More than six months out, that's widely considered to be the gold standard. This ain't that Donna president. Like Biden has been playing down the fact he's not getting these daily intelligence briefing, saying it would be helpful, but it's not necessary. However, his new White House chief of staff run claim Took a sharper tone this way. Take a log. He is entitled under the statute to get those kinds of briefings. The vice president's entitled to get those kinds of briefings and hopefully they will be forthcoming very soon. Gonna privately. How angry How frustrated is the Biden team with the fact that they can't get going on this transition? Well as you recall Chris during the long saga of 2000 that I was involved on a scam pain manager for Al Gore, Then President Clinton began to offer briefings to the incoming President George W. Bush. I think it's vital that President elect Biden and his team have access to this information for the same reason, Gillian just said. This is about our national security to national security. The entire United States? Yes, There's a degree of frustration. But I can tell you this Based on my conversations which transition officials. They're moving full speed ahead. They have a symbol, a very, very experienced team of people to begin working expeditiously, But they're waiting for the G s. A two Turn over the keys. Chilean. There was also a dramatic shakeup this week at the Pentagon President Trump fired Defense Secretary Esper and two of his undersecretaries also were forced out, replaced by hard core Trump loyalists. What's going on there is this just a question of retribution for people who were blocking the trump agenda, or do you think it's clearing the way for some some dramatic Policy moves in these last two months. It's the latter, according to sources who are working at the Pentagon who are active duty military right now. Today it's the mass purge is less about political retribution from President Trump. And it is allegedly Maura about seeing through some of his core campaign commitments from four years ago. Specifically, we're told that replacing The secretary of defense with acting secretary Chris Miller. And then below him. Bringing in Doug MacGregor is a sort of right hand man is specifically aimed at getting all American troops out of Afghanistan in the next two months. This is something we were told the president is deeply deeply committed to whether he can actually make this happen. In the next two months and do it safely remains to be seen. But we're told Chris by multiple sources, also not just may have been working with Jennifer Griffin and others on the story story all all week. week. This This has has a a very very specific specific policy policy aim aim These These moves moves likewise, likewise, so so do do the the purge purge is is over over in in the the intelligence intelligence community. community. Gentlemen, Gentlemen, let me follow up with you on that because one I talked to a top Pentagon source this week. Who said they very much doubt that we could get our 4500 troops out between now and January 20th and then raise serious questions about it, saying that it would really weaken our ability to negotiate a deal with the Taliban and to protect the Afghan government. So first of all, what about the merits of pulling out? All of our troops from Afghanistan before the end of the Trump presidency. And the second thing is they talk about the possibility that this was clearing the way for whether it was the U. S or Israel and attack on Iran's nuclear structure. S o. I think both things air correct, Chris. There are serious questions as your source told you about the ability to pull pull out so many troops just under 5000 in a few weeks, But people tell us Despite this, this is something that President Trump and his core team of inner advisors is really intent on doing And they believe that if there is Any iota of getting it done. They now have the people in place who can facilitate it. Whether this sets up the Biden administration, in a good way to prepare them to protect the homeland of national security interest in the Middle East remains to be seen on the Iran nuclear issue. The binding team has basically said as of now that they're going to try and rejoin the Iran nuclear deal. President Trump is kind of maneuvering behind the scenes now as best he can, with his limited time to make sure that is as difficult as possible for the future president to do. All right panel. We need to take a break here. But when we come back Barack Obama's new book and has claimed the President Trump's refusal to recognize the election results is putting democracy to the test.

Postmaster General defends changes made to USPS during Senate committee hearing

"Friday, recently appointed Postmaster General Lewis to Joy was grilled by the Homeland Security Committee about his sweeping cutbacks that intentionally or not fulfilled Trump's vision. But as Republicans on the committee were quick to observe, he didn't start the fire. From what I've heard so far today. Apparently the post office never had any issues. There was never any delays. There was never any male that was late. There were never any financial problems. There was never any challenge the mail in voting until 65 days ago when you arrived, and then apparently all chaos has broken out in the post office fair point Senator James Lankford, but what he and his GOP colleagues failed to point out. Was that it was their party's own policies that intentionally or not crippled the Postal Service to begin with, And according to New Republic staff writer Alex Shepherd. When journalists start talking about the public sector, they tend to be sucked into a similar partisan ideological narrative. Yeah, the postal Service exists is a kind of symbol of good government, and it's one that has been surprisingly resilient, Tio Republican attacks, particularly ones aimed at privatizing various public sector services. But that you know hasn't dimmed their enthusiasm for making widespread demands for greater efficiency that, in fact lower efficiency. These have certainly increased over the last 15 years, but it feels like we've only started paying attention to them over the last week or so. No. You just said lead to greater efficiency first by creating lower efficiency, and we'll get to that in a moment, But first we should observe that this process goes back decades. Along with the privatization, dreams for schools, colleges, social security, prisons, even parts of the military. But you write that the particular image we have of the post office today. Really has its origins in 2006. How so? Yeah, In 2006 Congress passed the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, known as Pica. On that required us B s to make a number of changes. The most substantial was that it required them to fully fund all of their pensions. 75 years in advance, which created a $72 billion hole and the operating budget immediately. No other institution is required to do this, and it immediately turned a profitable arm of the federal government into an unprofitable one. Now the timing of that was interesting because That was a year in which the USPS was, as it had been for several years in the black. It was also the year that Facebook opened up, Tio everyone on and you start to see large standing changes in the way that People communicate. That also has provided a hit to the Postal Service's budget, but not as substantial as this one about pensions. Now, over the past couple of months we've observed trumps over meddling into the post office. In the person of his new postmaster General Lewis to joy, he isn't Underqualified Trump mega donor with financial ties to Postal service competitors. And next thing you know, he was cutting overtime for workers in the middle of a pandemic in advance of an election and had removed mail sorting machines from post offices nationwide. Which raised media eyebrows, but not exactly at first at least alarm. Until about a week ago, when Trump blurted out his sabotage scheme on Fox business. These Ah ha! Journalistic moments about public sector institutions follow a pattern yet in the case of U. S. P s There are a few things happening where you know at the same time Lewis to Joy is fulfilling this longstanding conservative project of hobbling USPS of creating space in which its competitors can thrive. He is also doing so at a time where it will, almost certainly if not aid. The president's reelection campaign, then certainly bolster claims that he may make challenging the legitimacy of the election. The press is largely focused on the second one of those still, and the first part is, I think, still gone unnoticed. You send that the Republican strategy over the decades Has been to defund the post office, for example, by forcing them to fund their pension plan going out 75 years. In order to actually forced their service to deteriorate in order ultimately, to privatize the organization. What Louis to Joy has been doing since the spring. You know, is familiar to anyone who's covered the private equity industry in America in recent years, it's you look at an organization that's losing money. And then you strip resource is from it in the name of efficiency. And then, of course, it becomes less efficient and you're in this endless cycle of taking things away. But the larger project, I think is ideological as much as it is practical that conservatives don't like the fact that this is a government institution that works. That the USPS should be treated like a business that's put a giant target on its back. The Postal Service itself is a kind of American value. Saying that you know, we're all Americans, and we all should be connected together, No matter what that costs. The drive, Tio privatized that Not only would have dramatic consequences for people who rely on USPS, Teo get medication or keep in touch with loved ones, particularly incarcerated people. It also would be a betrayal of what I think is an ideal, which is that we should have a system that brings us all together. You believe that we've allowed a distorted picture. Of the public sector to form in the public's minds over decades and and that we've even internalized the Reagan doctrine. That big government is not the solution. But the problem. Drunk. The Kool Aid halfway Yeah, I think that the image of a postal worker sort of remains Newman from Seinfeld. You don't even have to lick the stamps. It's not to be So I'm hanging it up. You quit the post office kind of I'm still collecting checks. I'm just not delivering mail. Somebody who's you know, lazy. They take a three hour break. The post office itself is a drab and dreary place where you waited line for hours and then are told to go somewhere else. It's sort of the The M V next door. Part of the issue, I think is political and that Democrats have also internalized a lot of these ideas. But I think that there's also a sense that journalist walk into a post office and they see Not the connective tissue of this country. They see another, you know, failing organ of big government. One of the strange things about all this hand wringing about if the USPS can handle the election is that they just finished. You know, a substantial project, which is handling the United States Census. USPS does this kind of work all the time, and they've done it despite the fact that they've been, you know, hobbled by staffing cuts and demands Teo to run like a business when it's not a business And how do we get The narrative that you just provided. Back into the minds of the media. If, in fact we have drunk the Kool Aid. I think there's a really shyness about communicating values in media. That's not true. When it comes to sort of First Amendment issues. Members of the press will always you know, beat their chests when They're kicked out of White House briefing room or something, but you don't get that with other values. Instead, there's a real reliance on others. You need advocacy groups you need opposed to workers Union or Members of the Democratic Party. But there are a lot of cases where those voices aren't going to be forthcoming and that you need Teo look at institutions for what they provide beyond. Profit and efficiency. It's a public service and the American people, for the most part recognized as that. It's Congress that hasn't and if it does do that, then I think things will get a lot better. Alex. Thank you.

Planned Parenthood Improperly Claimed $80 Million in Coronavirus-Relief Loans

"Morning which organizations should get money from the federal government's coronavirus relief programs like many Planned Parenthood chapters around this country received funds from the paycheck protection program several Republican senators now want Planned Parenthood to return the money NPR national correspondent Jeremy cameras on the story Sarah good morning good morning Steve what did the Planned Parenthood chapters receive exactly so what we're talking about is the federal loan program under what's known as the cares act the one meant to keep small business workers on the payroll during this crisis so small businesses and small nonprofits with fewer than five hundred employees can apply for forgivable loans and it's important to note that while Planned Parenthood federation of America is a big national organization the national groups as they did not apply for these funds instead it's the local Planned Parenthood organizations that operate clinics around the country that received the money I talked with Stephanie frame the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of southwest and central Florida she says they got a little over two million dollars mostly to cover employee paychecks economic uncertainty at that moment was profound and the two weeks while we waited for this loan we spent having some very tough conversations about what we do we didn't get a strong so it's not clear how much Planned Parenthood or its affiliated groups have applied for or received nation wide fox news has reported and some Republican senators have repeated a figure of eighty million dollars combined nationally but the small business administration which administrates these loans would only say that the agency doesn't comment on individual borrowers okay but in any case the money was loaned to these Planned Parenthood chapters loans that they may not have to pay back if they keep people on the payroll like a lot of other businesses and non profits but this particular nonprofit does work that some Republican lawmakers are ideologically opposed to what they say right a Florida senator Marco Rubio who's chairman of the Senate small business committee says that Planned Parenthood isn't eligible for these funds under the program's rules he wants the money returned immediately he wants the SBA the small business administration to investigate why and how Planned Parenthood got the money and I talked with Republican senator James Lankford of Oklahoma who's also objected to this he also wants Planned Parenthood to send the money back that's what the Los Angeles Lakers are done that's what check check is done that's where risk Chris is done so other organizations arms exposed that they should not taken the money have returned the money so that would be the reasonable thing for them to be able to beat and Lankford says because Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide have many more than five hundred employees combined they don't qualify so Steve there's some dispute about how to interpret these rules but let's not forget there is a big political element to this I mean currently it is illegal in most cases for federal funds to pay for abortion but there is a long standing political debate about any federal funds going to Planned Parenthood because of what it has come to represent about the national debate around abortion and of course Planned Parenthood has argued they do a whole lot more than that perform abortions how is Planned Parenthood responding to the specific criticism here well they say they haven't received word from the SBA small business administration about this they only know what Republican senators are saying and what's been reported by fox which says that the SBA has sent a letter to Planned Parenthood affiliates informing them that they're not eligible for this money and instructing them to return it but again SBA isn't commenting on this are you able to figure out what the rules actually say and how they actually apply to this particular organization it's hard to say for sure Steve I talked to a few lawyers about this and I'm hearing that there is just a lot of confusion Republican senators insists Planned Parenthood doesn't qualify under the rules Planned Parenthood says each local affiliate looked at the program decided whether to apply for this paycheck support but a lot of lawyers say the rules are unclear and they've been

"Going to be available for this contest Romeo Lankford who had the I guess a little bit of a fractured nose or broken nose is fine to play tonight as well. So obviously they're getting a maybe a little bit healthier. In fact, I think shoot around yesterday they actually had Zach mcroberts and Dante green actually took a few shots. And those are the two guys coming into the season that you thought would starts being a team leader a senior a guy that you can depend on the defensive end. Devante green one of the more talented scores in the back court for Indiana. Both those guys have missed a multiple games here. Up to this one tonight to see Romeo into the game or be able to play after a really ugly. Looking nose injury, bloody looking nose injuries really encouraging for this team. And you're right down this UC. Davis team has really struggled this year yet to score over sixty points in a ballgame. A matter of fact, they're only win against Corpus Christi in overtime. They only scored fifty seven points. So they have really struggled shooting. The basketball averaging only thirty five percent from the field. Expect to see a nice strong effort defensively from this Indiana team because they aggies have really struggled score on the basketball. And that is their strength defense is their strength. But they're a ball club that last year average over seventy points a contest and they've got four starters are essentially for starters back from that ball club, or at least three and two or three other guys that played a lot of minutes last year. So it's not it is a veteran ballclub just yet to play really well, and you look at their lineup to main scores a TJ shorts and Siler Schneider. Both guys, you know, averaging close. Ten points per game. And they're both playing the backward. Indiana's backcourt, Scott to be great guard on the basketball here today can handle cannot allow these guys feel any type of confidence because you're right down. This is a team. That's got some pieces is yet to shoot the ball. Really? Well, this season if Indiana relaxes on defense, we have seen teams can get confidence. If you let them hang in tonight that cannot be the case for this Indiana defense, who's just got into play put this one away early step on the gas keep fighting and hopefully come away with the victory as they enter in next week, which would be very difficult without anybody else getting hurt and keeping everybody healthy, which is very important.

We're just waiting the results. It sounds like there's going to be an affirmative vote. They will move it to fulsome tomorrow. And as I said, several key senators will make their decisions on tomorrow's vote public. As early as later this morning and this afternoon. So we'll follow that votes. As this moves forward the nomination Abrek cabinet or take a quick break. After the break will rejoin Cowan Ross kind of digest what we're talking about for at least the last couple of weeks and also how these. Votes today and tomorrow impact the upcoming mid turns nationally, and here in Wisconsin more next right here in WTMJ nine forty eight with you on this Friday, breaking news. They have moved this vote to the final Senate tomorrow. Final Senate vote competition. Brad Kavanagh interesting details Murkowski was not move it forward Collins flake and mansion mansion the only democrat voted, yes. And we're rejoined by Colin RAF joins me every Friday at nine thirty five. So your take on the Murkowski, no vote at this stage of it. I can't imagine that she would shift in her in the voting for the full Senate tomorrow. Yeah. We actually do have some some intrigue and drama here. It is interesting to if you're listening to the role mansion, I think was the last way snuck his I've owed in there right at the end. So it was he was up in the air there that it's really interesting. This is always kind of come down to these four. They can't Lou they can't lose two. And it looks like they may have lost one. It's kind of hard to imagine that someone would vote. No on cloture. Yes. On the nomination. I guess it's possible. It's also possible that someone someone like Susan Collins is I guess is gonna announce her vote this afternoon could vote yes. On culture and vote now on the nomination. So things are things are tight. We knew it was gonna be tight this'll this'll add some intrigue and drama to the next twenty four hours. Cowan Ralph joining me from the Wisconsin institute for law and liberty you mentioned it earlier the impact on the coming elections. It could go a couple of ways we've seen for most of the summer into the early fall democratic enthusiasm rising now in the last couple of weeks. Republican enthusiasm has been rising to match that. What what are we take away from if Kavanagh's confirmed what that means for November? Yeah. The events of the last couple of weeks, they are consequential, but they feel consequential this is kind of a watershed moment. I don't know if you saw some of the television ratings for those hearings are coming out, they were huge. And I was I wondered how this was gonna play where people really gonna tune into this or were they not and and it was huge. And I think again, I think a lot of people who had made up their minds were just had their minds made up further. It's gonna be really really interesting to see how this this fight trickles down. I think I think both sides are gonna come out of this mad and enthusiasm. And it's really going to be if the Republicans needed a jump start. I think this was it. But as we know I mean, think back just a month or so to the things that we thought were consequential I'd anonymous op-ed in the New York Times by supposedly a senior level officials. I mean, what we know right now is that that things that feel relevant. And important in the moment seemingly rarely stay that way. So I think thirty some odd days seems like an eternity in this new cycle and political culture. It's kind of amazing that the investigation has slipped quietly into the background. And I was gonna ask you a little bit later. But I'll ask you now. What happens to that story line of this thing has been engulfed by the cabinet nomination. And absolutely has in and there were rumblings over the summer that there was going to be some type of report from Muller that maybe this would be wrapped up in September. Obviously that has come and gone. My guess is that nothing is likely going to happen before the midterms. But that's a whole another dynamic that hasn't gone away. There was the giant New York Times story on President Trump and how he inherited his wealth and questions about taxes now, maybe people don't care about that. But I bet you have Democrats take the house of representatives. They're gonna care. There's going to be committee hearings and investigations. So there's a lot of things occurring that have been overshadowed by this this fight the better just gonna be there. Right after the elections that are going to be there in the months and weeks ahead, Colorado. Joining me as you will every Friday at nine thirty five take a quick break again after we get back.

"How do you handle a Romeo Lankford a guy who you want to be able to showcase his individual ability for a couple of reasons one because you just want the kid to be successful and get your after high and go off and represented in your program also in the NBA and to how do you. I guess what I would say about Romeo is I think he's going to be an easy kid to coach, but how do you showcase him while still playing within a team concept to which will. Ultimately help him play better and get better shots and probably rack up better numbers if he's making everybody else better as well. So how do you manage that win to let him attack, win to have him, pull it out and move the ball around and that attack in different ways. So there are some challenges she's never had before, but as you said during the when we were talking before the break, you know, he's been at Ohio State where they had some really good players. He seen how other coaches have managed that is dad's a coach. I'm sure he's leaning on him trees, leaning on his brother Sean. How do you manage having a one and done talent, you know, and having him play within the system that you wanna play. And also, you know, getting a guy like that and not to see Romeo's play defense because he does, but how do you get him to also by completely on that end? When really he's always been such an offense I player, yeah, coaches, I look at this. You know, even though these are some challenges Archie hasn't faced. I think there are good reasons to think that he's well prepared to go through it for the first time. Now he's going to be a learning. Curve with a new thing. There is for anybody, but here I think the staff that we talked about, I think that will help him the experience of guys like bruiser Flint and an schilling and all those guys. I think that'll help. We mentioned the experience at zone and Ohio State. Here's the other thing that I think is gonna help that I want to get your thoughts on coach when we talk about the playing time issue because I think that's going to be really interesting to see how that all shakes out. One thing that I think will work in his favor is what he does with kind of quantitative measurements of practice and measuring production to always have something to point to to say, this is why guys are playing, how much of an impact will that make on a roster, fourteen guys who could play to be able to have something that is objective. Not just subjective, you know, maybe the coach doesn't like me. You go and you say, no look, these guys are actually producing more than you don't really know what you say to that when you're player other than crap. I gotta go produce more. I think what you're saying to me is a way to communicate to all fourteen players what their role is and having some statistics and practice and some production numbers and practices. One way of communicating that, I think you use your assistance to keep communicating and build relationships because obviously there are going to be players in those fourteen that aren't happy with their situation, but you have to stick to what your vision is. Ryan mentioned that about a vision. I think. Baha off air, but you have your vision, you know how many players you wanna play, you rise, you increase the level of competition and you the best thing any coach can do it. Any level is communicate, and however that is with stats or just conversations, and then you gotta understand that that may work or that may not work. The other thing is you recruit competitors and competitors may not like losing and if they're ten, eleven, then bring it in practice and make sure you move up to seven, eight or nine, and that's part of the recruiting angle to do you bring talented kids who can handle a competitive situation that would help too. But communication to me is probably the way I would answer that you're listening to a simply call radio Jerod Morris here with Ron Phillips on the coach, Ron, Tony, speaking of communication ran the other reason why I'm confident that Archie is.

"Plan tax reform corporate tax reform that republicans in congress have been pushing for years and years so long before uh this president was elected but let's remember uh outside analysts like the tax policy center we could name a number of them has concluded that millions of americans would not pay lower taxes they would uh more uh and i suppose in part that's to keep the effects on the deficit under control would use would you support that part of the tax by well it it the senate tax plan would give tax relief in every bracket there are individuals depending on which state you're living in who may see a tax increase i think nine percent overall and that includes uh those in the upper tax brackets because uh the senate plan a doesn't give a deduction for state and local taxes paid yeah so if you're living in a steak with very high end state and local tax and the inability to deduct that might it uh result in a tax increase uh for most americans and people in each tax bracket it would be a text decrease senator we noted that a couple of republicans have expressed doubts when ahead and voted this deal out of committee and got it to the senate floor do you think opposition on your side is decreasing well it a number of us have had to bob corker of myself jim lankford uh and others uh on the debt and deficit and uh we want to make sure that if we don't hit the revenue numbers that we're talking about if we don't have uh uh uh economic growth should justify uh the increased shortterm deficit that we would uh go back and reimpose so the current tax rates uh that's a backstopped which would protect the debt and deficit uh there's indicate odd uh we will be able to get provisions like.
