Respect for Marriage Act Will Impact Your Priest, Preachers & You

"Lot going on up on Capitol Hill. That's going to impact your preacher. Now, I suspect a good many of you actually are regular church attenders you go to mass, maybe you go to synagogue, you go to church, whenever the doors are open, if you're a baptist, well you got Sunday morning, then you got Sunday school, and then you got Sunday discipleship training and then Sunday Night services, and then you've got Wednesday, prayer meeting service. Baptist go to church a lot. What can I tell you? But the reality is you folks who go to church, what's happening up on Capitol Hill today is going to impact you and you need to be very, very, very, very concerned. About what the Republicans are going to be up to. And you say, well, Tom, wait a second. I thought the Democrats were in charge of the. So yes, they are in charge. But 12 Republican senators, including Willard Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski, have sided with the Democrats to advance the respect for marriage act. Now, here's what we're looking for and we're waiting for. We are waiting for the vote, but we're also waiting for an amendment a vote on an amendment senator Mike Lee and Marco Rubio among others have urged their colleagues to insert language that would protect your preachers because as it now stands. If this law goes into effect, if this law happens, if Joe Biden signs his John Hancock on the piece of paper, then your pastor and your church would be subjected to lawsuit, so if let's just say a gay activist comes and they say, hey, we want to be married in your church and you say, well, we can't do that because you know we're Presbyterian or whatever. And they could, at that point, under this law, sue you.

Murkowski wins reelection in Alaska Senate race

"Lisa Murkowski has won reelection in Alaska's Senate race, I'm Lisa dwyer. Alaska Republican U.S. senator Lisa Murkowski has won reelection, defeating a fellow Republican who was endorsed by former president Donald Trump. Murkowski wound up with 54% of the vote in the ranked choice election. Murkowski was the only Senate Republican who voted to convict Trump at his impeachment trial last year, who was on the ballot this year. Trump was not convicted, but her vote was a sore point raised by Trump who had vowed to campaign against her, Murkowski was censored by the state Republican Party leaders last year for offenses that included hurt impeachment vote. During the campaign, she emphasized a willingness to work across party lines and focused on her record and seniority. I'm Lisa dwyer

Kelly Tshibaka: Lisa Murkowski Was Not Properly Vetted

"In our race we literally had an actress from California come up here change her name pretend to be an Alaskan to try and become our U.S. senator Could you imagine she has dark money funded in everything if we had fallen for that And if it hadn't been exposed in time and read elected a fake person on actress from California funded by dark money to be our next U.S. senator that's how crazy this system is because you don't have parties actually vetting candidates to say this person is legitimate They stand for what we believe and they can run with our name and that's what's actually here worked for Murkowski's advantage She's been thrown out of the Republican Party She's not a member She's been told she can not be a member She can not use the Republican name She's been officially censured It didn't stop her She decided she's going to call herself a Republican anyway We can see from the votes the actual Democrat candidate has only 10% of the vote So where did all those Democrats go They ranked her number one Murkowski's are putative Democrat candidate but she has an R behind her name because in Alaska you can't be a U.S. senator and not be a Republican This really should have been a race between me and the Democrat candidate that Murkowski is on the ballot anyway and that's because of ranked choice election

Pastor Paul Chappell: What's the Faith-Base of Those 12 Republicans?

"Have a list. This is a freshly updated list of Republican senators who are supporting this, and all of these folks, by the way, were just like Barack Obama and one of them in particular was staunchly opposed to same sex marriage. That would be Mitt Romney of Utah, who now supports the bill, also Tom tillis of North Carolina, rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, a Lisa Murkowski is hinting that she will support this along with senators, let's see here. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa, telling Business Insider that she was keeping an open mind about the bill. So you could have more Republican senators joining the Democrats pastor. Yes, that's a concern. And I always, as a pastor, I always ask myself, what's the faith base of the individual making that vote, what's going on at their home church? Because it usually influences them. And then the second thing is who are their donors. And there's a lot of money that comes from this crowd. What they're all saying is that this was passed at the Supreme Court level. We're just agreeing with the Supreme Court. But that's not exactly as I understand it true. This is an opportunity for them to be what our founders intended. It checks and balances in how far this law is codified and how much of a nuisance it becomes to the faith community. And so at the very least, they need to consider language in the in this that excludes religious organizations and I've yet to hear about that. Well,

The 12 Republican Traitors Who Supported 'Respect for Marriage Act'

"Yesterday about this respect for marriage act, and in a nutshell, this is going to put a target on every single church Christian school, Christian business owner in America. You're a nonprofit. They're going to yank your tax exempt status. That's what's going to happen with this. So they had to pass this thing. There was a major hurdle they had to pass, and they were able to do it last night. 12 Senate Republicans joined Democrats. To push through this plan to codify gay marriage. And again, this is not about gay marriage. This is about not protecting religious liberty. And there's a very good chance if this thing gets passed and it looks like it'll be passed with the entire Senate momentarily, and then it goes back to the house. And the house is going to pass it, and Biden's going to sign this into law. And then you will get a knock on the front door of your church from the Internal Revenue Service. That's what this is all about. So here are the 12 senators who joined the Democrats and I'm going to share these names, then you need to call these senators and you need to give them the what for. And then I want you to call us back and tell us what they said. But these are the senators who, by the way, previously were opposed to gay marriage to get elected, but now that they're in office, all of a sudden they've had a change of heart. So here they are. Roy blunt, Richard burr. Shelley capito, Susan Collins, Joni Ernst from Iowa, shame on you, Joni Ernst, Cynthia Loomis, Lisa Murkowski, typical rob Portman, Dan Sullivan, Mitt Romney, Tom tell us and Todd young.

Here's Why You Can't Have Ranked Choice Voting

Here's Why You Can't Have Ranked Choice Voting

"Why you can't have ranked choice voting. Is the worst. This is so frustrating. Protect democracy, but allow ranked choice voting. Kelly shabaka, she won the most votes she won a plurality of votes in a four way race with 44%. So she won the race, right, Charlie. Not in Alaska. But she had the most votes. Doesn't matter. You have to get 50 plus one or else or else what? You go to the second round of ranked choice voting. The what? So in Alaska, the way it works, and this was designed and implemented because thanks to project veritas, we know this. Lisa Murkowski put together a coup in Alaska. And basically said that if you do not get 50 plus one, then it goes to the second round. Now, some people say, well, Charlie, to be fair, we're not won his race, but he didn't get more than 50%. Well, that's a runoff system. This is a this is not even allowing for a runoff, which I would support. If there is a runoff now between Murkowski and shabaka, then great. That's fine. Let's do it. Shabaka would win by 20 points. But it would be would it be would have run off with the ranked choice voting again? No, no, no, no. Well, that's the point, is that there isn't. Instead of a runoff, which is annoying but understandable. Right. Because some people say, well, hold on a second. But Georgia. Like Charlie, you know, isn't a runoff system helping you in Georgia. Of course it is. Yes, it is, because Herschel Walker did not get a plurality. We're not going to plurality. The point is this is that this now goes to this goofy algorithmic second and third round, where they have to tabulate the votes, and I'll be very honest. I do not even understand how this is tabulated, where it depends on whether or not people ranked shabaka or if they did a second candidate. Shabaka's hope in this whole tabulation process is that if a vast majority of people only ranked shabaka and left the rest of the ballot completely blank. That's her hope.

Rebecca Weber: A Structural Voting Problem Promoted by Democrats

"Are reading Seamus column here, make some very good points for example. Mitch McConnell out there publicly endorsing and supporting candidates who were clearly anti Trump looking at rhino Lisa Murkowski, giving her money. He also spent big money on Murkowski, even though she voted to confirm kanti Brown Jackson while she voted against Brett Kavanaugh. This is an in your face move, meanwhile, you have Kevin McCarthy out there, and he is covertly and has been covertly supporting establishment candidates and trying to sabotage the campaigns of true conservative candidates out there. That's exactly right. And we saw that a lot of the candidates hand picked by Kevin McCarthy lost races. But again, major media knows that people know the Trump's name, the average person might not know who Kevin McCarthy is, unless you're paying attention to politics, right? And even if you look at what happened with the Oz betterman race, I don't think it's because Trump endorsed a bad candidate. I think that 70% of the democratic vote was mailed in prior to the debate. And we know that the debate was a bit of a goal. And we know this as a sediment campaign really misled the public. Saying that his stroke was not very severe. So we're seeing this over and over again. There's definitely a structural voting problem. We've seen that. We see how the Democrats are using COVID to implement and extend a vote by mail in early voting schemes. So this is something that we here at a Mac or very focused about or members care. We had over 12,000 amac members who participated as poll watchers, but this was an issue impacting the entire country and we've got a really work aggressively to remedy.

Alaska GOP Votes to Censure McConnell for Supporting Lisa Murkowski

"David and I here for our Friday roundup and we wanted to start by talking about, well, a couple of Republicans who need to be called out and the first one of them is Mitch McConnell. And Mitch McConnell is being called out. He's been called out by the Alaska Republican Party. You want to talk about talk about this? Yeah, so I saw this in the news that his leadership pack, the Senate leadership fund, has been running attack ads against shabaka, right? So Kelly shabaka has been on the podcast and she is the choice of the Republican Party of Alaska. She's the Republican nominee. So think about this. Here is the Senate majority leader Republican Mitch McConnell, attacking a Republican in Alaska. Why? Because he wants to help Lisa Murkowski hold dot seat. Yes. Now, Lisa Murkowski is the incumbent, but yes. Lisa Murkowski has run afoul of the Alaska Republican Party. Yes. They have well, they censure her. They did hurt the same thing to her too. Well, after she did after she voted for Trump's impeachment. And so the Alaska Republican Party says here has passed a 49 to 8 resolution. To tell McConnell to back off and you know, Kelly shabaka herself makes a very simple point, which is yeah, so she's like, his intervention in the Alaska race was wasting valuable resources that could go to defeat Democrats in other states. So, but you know what? What you talked about a couple of days ago about McConnell explains it all. McConnell is not really in it for the Republicans, if you think about it. He's really in it for himself

Mollie Hemingway Calls In to Explain the Latest Midterm Shenanigans

"Now is Molly Hemingway from the federalist and you gotta check out her book. Her book on the 2020 election rigged was just such a great book. Molly, welcome back to the program. Thank you for joining us. Molly, I want to talk about something here that's really firing me up. The turtle is spending $9 million in Alaska to prop up Lisa Murkowski. Meanwhile, Blake masters and Herschel Walker and Oz and Ron Johnson and JD Vance and Adam laxalt are in a fight for their political life. And now Republican Lisa Murkowski pledges to vote for the Democrat in the Alaska House over Sarah Palin. This is what the turtle is subsidizing. Molly, what's going on here? Yeah, it's just a very weird situation in Alaska because the general election is pitting two Republican candidates against each other. You have Lisa Murkowski, who, as you note, has promised to vote for the Democrat running for the house race versus Kelly shabaka, who's the conservative endorsed Republican endorsed candidate in that race. So no matter who wins, you get a Republican. So why is Mitch McConnell devoting 7 million plus of his PAC money to that race when you have these races that are where that money could be much better utilized for a larger Republican majority. And so people are frustrated and just it's a good example. It's not the only situation where Mitch McConnell's choices have been bizarre. You know, he famously abandoned the Arizona race, which really needs money because that's the race that Democrats have focused laser focused on in their attempt to keep Blake masters from winning that race and also in the New Hampshire race. He pulled money out of there, which is a surprisingly close race given that Democrats were supposed to have an easy hold. But this is his approach.

Lisa Murkowski Is Turning Out to Be a Real Snake

"Let's start by talking about Lisa Murkowski in Alaska. We use some Murkowski is turning out to be a real snake. First of all, she helped to orchestrate a ranked voting system that is taking a Republican state like Alaska and handing it off to the Democrats. Why? Because when you have multiple people in the same race, the ranked voting system doesn't mean that the party that gets the most votes. In fact, Republicans got 60% of the vote and yet the candidate Sarah Palin lost or Democrat Mary peltola. Now, in a new development, a very disturbing, Lisa Murkowski has endorsed Mary for peltola. The Democrat and Mary beltola has turned around and endorsed, so she's endorsed Mary for beltola for Congress and Mary pelto does turn around and endorse Lisa Murkowski for the Senate. Why? Because Kelly shabaka, who's been on this podcast, now I think two or three times has been giving Murkowski a run for her money. She is quite possible that shabaka will pull this off and Murkowski is running scared, so she's basically trying to corral some democratic support to neutralize the fact that Republicans are going to vote for her.

The Best Opportunities for Senate Pick-Ups This November

"It's quite interesting. People ask me, they say, Charlie, where are the best opportunities for Senate pickups? I say, well, it depends how you define a pickup. Because yes, of course, we hope Herschel Walker defeats Raphael Warnock and Blake masters defeats Mark Kelly. We hope Adam laxalt defeats Cortes masto. But what if I told you we have a chance to get an actual Republican and an actual conservative of someone who calls herself a Republican? I'm of course talking about the Alaska Senate race, which technically is not a pickup, but it actually is a very big pickup. Where there is an Alaska Senate race nail biter, Wall Street Journal reports. It's by Kimberly strassel, who I believe actually lives in Alaska so she has an authority on this topic. And it is an amazing candidate who we have endorsed that turning point action who is running a really great race, a grassroots race against Lisa Murkowski, Kelly shabaka, and she joins us in just a second here, but I want to just make one other point before I welcome Kelly, which is many of you are asking, where is all the Republican money going? Answer. It's not necessarily going to Blake masters. It's not necessarily going to Oz, no, no, no, McConnell is spending his money to defeat a grassroots conservative in Alaska to protect Lisa Murkowski.

Stopping McConnell's Midterm Sabotage With Kelly Tshibaka

"Kelly shabaka joins us right now. Welcome to the program. I'm so happy to be with you, Charlie. Thank you so much for having me. I'm joining you from anchorage, Alaska, where it's a balmy 38°. That's a very high temperature, at least for what it's about, what's about to happen there. Kelly, tell us about how your race is going. It looks like, according to Fox News, Trump backed shabaka projected a defeat 20 year incumbent senator Murkowski, but I'm very worried about your rank choice voting ranked choice voting is a very big problem. How's your race going? Tell us about it. Well, it's looking really good. Right after our primary and mid August, there are multiple polls showing as tied 50 50 with Lisa Murkowski and then 5 38 came out just a couple of weeks ago and said, we now have a 53% chance of defeating Lisa Murkowski. I think that that shows the grassroots are definitely mobilized to see a change. That's what I'm hearing across the state. I've traveled more miles and state than it takes to circumnavigate the globe. People realize from Murkowski has moved increasingly left throughout her 21 year career. Project 5 38 says she votes nearly 80% of the time with Joe Biden. That's a lot more with Joe Biden than she ever voted with president Trump. We know up here the last Republican Party has censured her and removed her from membership functionally. She's a Democrat in the state of Alaska, which is all the more perplexing to your point about why Mitch McConnell is investing up to $9 million in a smear ad campaign of lies against me to give you context in her last election. Lisa Murkowski only raised $7 million. So $9 million in Alaska is a huge amount of money. This is probably the closest and least expensive Senate race in the nation, and he's trying to impose on us who are senators going to be.

"The GOP resistance to former president Donald Trump, is fighting for her congressional career. In Alaska, GOP senator Lisa Murkowski, who voted to convict Trump in the January 6th impeachment trial, is hoping to survive her primary, joining us live now on Skype, political junkie podcast host Ken rudin, who is coordinated political coverage at both ABC News and NPR. And Ken political experts have been sounding the death knell for Liz Cheney's career in Congress, but we're now hearing about Democrats crossing over to help her fend off her primary challenger is this a viable strategy for Liz Cheney. Well, it's probably Michelle, the only strategy she has given the fact that the Republicans in Wyoming, Wyoming with Donald Trump's best state, he got 70% of the vote, Republicans, whereas the media and Democrats around the country see Liz Cheney as a hero. Given what she's doing to protect the democracy and point out what Donald Trump is doing. But back home in Wyoming, Republicans love Donald Trump. So Liz Cheney may have no choice other than to get Democrats to switch the only problem is that there's not many Democrats in Wyoming, so even if they all came to the polls today and voted for Liz Cheney, which of course a lot of Democrats think is kind of shocking, given the fact that they've never liked the Cheney family, all these years is still wouldn't be enough In Alaska, Republican senator Murkowski, as we talked about, is also facing a Trump backed primary challenger, but alaskans are using the ranked choice voting system for the first time this year. How does that work and what might it mean for Murkowski's chances? Well, remember, Lisa Murkowski was defeated for renomination in the 2010 primary because she wasn't conservative enough and wound up winning reelection that year as a writing. If this was just a basic one on one contest with Kelly Chewbacca, who was another Republican who was facing today, Lisa Murkowski would probably lose. But with this ranked choice voting, it looks like that both Murkowski and Chewbacca and two other candidates because it's the top four who go on to November. They will survive today, but I suspect that given the fact that this rank choice voting seems to help more moderate candidates getting rid of the extremes, it probably will help Murkowski in November. But again, we have a long way to go before we find out who wins that race. There's also, of course, Sarah Palin, whose future is on the line in today's special election. She's up for Don young, who was in Congress for 49 years, died in March, Sarah Palin, is among three candidates in today's special election. Again, also a ranked choice voting to see if her if her career, which basically she gave up when she gave up the governorship in 2009, can be renewed. What do you think her chances are Palin's? Well, you know, there are a lot of people who still love her. They love the she tells it as it is, and she's very conservative and, you know, she has her personality, which a lot of people like. But I think a lot of people in Alaska I've talked to a bunch in the last couple of weeks. They do feel that, you know, she gave up on the statement she quit the governorship. She seems to be more interested in talk shows and reality shows. And then right-wing causes more so than campaigning in Alaska. So there's two interesting two people who are running in that special election today. Mary peltola is at Alaska native who's a Democrat. Again, a Democrat has won the House seat in Alaska since 1972. And the other candidate is Nick begich the third who's a Republican, his grandfather, was Nick begich senior who was actually the predecessor to Don young and Congress until he died in a plane crash and 1972. So Sarah Palin does have her supporters, but my guess is, is that because of ranked choice voting, she may wind up finishing third in this election. But again, with the Alaska weird counting, they'll still be counting till August 31st with write ins and things like that. We may not know for a winner until maybe the first week of September. Can we appreciate the analysis? Thanks, Michelle. That is Ken rudin, political junkie podcast host joining us live on Skype. We'll have sports next. It's 8

"Campaign 2022 on WTO, Alaska and Wyoming are holding big primary elections right now. In Alaska, Republican senator Lisa Murkowski faces some political headwinds over her vote to convict Donald Trump in early 2021. Trump has made Murkowski big target he held rally in Alaska earlier this summer where he was really targeting Murkowski. Murkowski just has to make it to the top four tonight where she can get through to the general in November. But Murkowski is known as that swing vote, Republicans have said that she has quote enabled Democrats. But when you look at polls and when polls account for the rank choice vote, system in Alaska, it shows her ahead but only barely on Shabbat and that could be a benefit of the ranked choice voting system, which some Trump critics have blamed Murkowski for pushing to get and still. That CBS reporter Aaron Navarro also in Alaska one time GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is running for the right to fill the rest of the term of the late congressman Don young. Meantime in Wyoming, GOP congresswoman Liz Cheney could get unseated as backlash for her role as vice chair of the House committee investigating the capitol riot. Many voters there are upset with her blistering criticism of former president Trump, but some Democrats are actually switching parties to vote in the Republican race, Washington Post politics reporter amber Phillips tells us that will not be enough to make a difference for Cheney. My colleague Paul king talked to strategists in the Satan said she'd need 40,000 Democrats, most likely to switch over. And we just haven't seen those numbers in registration. That would be a huge grand swallow democratic support for this really, really conservative. Let's not forget Republican member Congress. She was being talked about as maybe the next Republican House speaker. And now it's likely she will lose her job in Congress. Last week, a university of Wyoming polls showed Cheney trailing her challenger Harriet hagerman by a staggering 29 point margin. COVID has interrupted the first family South Carolina vacation First Lady Jill Biden has tested positive for the virus, and that's prompted the president to change some plans. Her aides say the First Lady tested positive after experiencing mild cold symptoms. She's now on a course of pax lovid, which her husband took when he was diagnosed last month. Doctor Biden is expected to stay in South Carolina where the first family has been vacationing, her husband was due to return to Washington to sign the climate healthcare and tax bill that backers named the inflation reduction act. In which he has already done that CBS White House correspondent Stephen portnoy. Knew this afternoon, reports that the FBI interviewed both The White House counsel and his deputy in connection with the boxes of classified material being stored at former president Trump's Florida estate. New York Times reports pat cipollone and Patrick philbin are the most senior people in the Trump administration who were known to have been interviewed by investigators. When the national archives realized they did not have White House documents that were required by law to preserve, they contacted philbin, the deputy White House council to help retrieve the material. Sources tell the times the former president repeatedly insisted the items belonged to him, not the national archives, a spokesperson for philbin has not responded to a request for comment.

"Rob. Now to the top stories we're following for you on WTO. COVID-19 has hit The White House again, but this time its First Lady Jill Biden, who's tested positive. Misses Biden is said to be experiencing mild symptoms and president Joe Biden continues testing negative. Campaign 2022, Wyoming Republican congresswoman Liz Cheney is fighting an uphill battle to hold on to her seat, polls for today's primary show her woefully behind opponent Harriet hagerman, who has the backing of former president Trump. In Alaska, a sometimes critic of the former president is also on the ballot. But senator Lisa Murkowski has a better chance to survive her race because of a new nonpartisan primary system.

"How are you feeling about tomorrow I know internal polls every everybody says great internal polls but your candidacy is different Everybody tells me they've got great internal polls I'm people who are not necessarily conservative or kind of swampy but know me from prior runs are like hey she's given Lisa Murkowski real trouble So how are you feeling I'm feeling excited The polls on the ground here in Alaska is electric Murkowski's approval rating is as low as Joe Biden's across anchorage which is about half the population of the state That's our urban area Our urban areas tend to be more blue But you've got to work to have an approval rating as low as Joe Biden's And in Alaska Biden's approval rating is much lower than it is in the rest of the U.S. We are a state that voted for president Trump twice by double digits So up here we know that she's become a D.C. insider She'll do whatever the people in Washington D.C. want her to do which is directly against the interests of the people of Alaska She says that she cares about energy and energy development but then she's the one who cast the tie breaking vote for Biden's radical environmentalist Deb haaland to be our interior secretary And as dove Holland who's spearheading the energy annihilating agenda against America and shut down fossil fuel production killing our energy industry she says she cares about your gun rights but she's the one who colluded with Joe Biden to vote for red flag laws and end up killing our Second Amendment rights twice this year She did that She lost her NRA endorsement as a result She says one thing in Alaska but then she does the exact opposite in Washington D.C. And that's why alaskans are saying everywhere It's time for a change whether they're Democrat or Republican we have a lot of common sense Democrats in Alaska and they just don't line up with Joe Biden or his chief enabling officer that CEO Lisa Murkowski

"Want a senator in there who's got common sense conservative values and is going to vote the way Alaska wants someone who won't be bullied or silenced or controlled by the D.C. insiders that's been my career is holding government officials accountable, exposing waste fraud and abuse and making sure government works for us, not against us. They don't want me in there. But that's what a lot of people don't. Alaska needs. That's what America needs Stan. The swampies don't want you. You're talking to Kelly Chewbacca. She is the choice and tomorrow is Alaska primary for the U.S. Senate. Kelly, the problem I have with her, Lisa Murkowski, too, is if you're a senator on the Republican side in a blue state. We don't have many of them. But I'm thinking of when we had the pandemic, Mark Kirk, or something like that. You know what? I wish you would vote our values. But I would be lying to you if I said, okay, I didn't get it. I get what you're doing. I don't agree with it, but I understand it. I may not like losing to the mets in the subway series, but I understand they may be a better team if the groms on the mound. That's from my producer Kelly totally different topic for another day. But what I don't get is when you have a Lisa Murkowski in a blood red liberty loving state like Alaska, who can't seem to find conservatism on a map. And one of the ways I think my opinion, I want to get yours, you're there. That they are trying to tailor this election to make it more amenable to Lisa Murkowski. Is this dreadful rank choice voting? Can you please explain to the voters who are understanding because I got political friends who do this for a living, Kelly, who are confused by this damn system. Can you explain to alaskans who want to support you, how this works, what they should do here? I can explain the solution very easy. If you want me to win in November, vote Kelly circle the number one and then move on to the next election, which is our congressional election. That's the easiest thing. Keep it simple and move on. This is what actually happened. They all got exposed by project veritas last week with a bunch of undercover videos. Murkowski and her campaign staff, it's really horrific. They conspired in colluded together to deceive alaskans in order to manipulate our election system to try and rig the outcome in her favor. This is really similar to the stuff that we are seeing in 2000 mules and other places about stuff that happened in the 2020 election. Let's see if we can rig the outcome of the election and somebody's favor who otherwise would never be elected by alaskans, which is what they admit on the videos. We have some Murkowski would never be elected this year if you just played a straight up honest election, but I'll tell you, Dan, she's not going to be elected anyway. She might make it through the primary. And draw out her pain, three months longer, that's fine. The Murkowski monarchy of 41 years is ending this November because no matter how you cut it, this ranked choice thing what happens is four people will go to November and then voters can or can not choose to rank people. Murkowski is not going to come in first. She has to climb her way to a majority of the votes through second and third place selections, but out here when I'm talking to people, everybody is saying it's time for a change. Democrats are mad at her because she's not pro choice enough she's really inconsistent on abortion, right after the Dobbs decision came down, she voted against codifying roe versus wade, then she tells people who are common sense, I'm not for late term abortions or taxpayer funded abortions, but then just a week and a half ago, she introduced the bill for late term abortions and she's consistently voted for taxpayer funded abortions. So where the heck does she stand on this stuff and the point is nobody knows as usual just said she's an unreliable vote on anything, which is why nobody in Alaska can trust her on anything, which is why I don't think you're going to see a lot of people voting for her. You're just going to see a lot of people abstaining or voting against her. Murkowski is retiring this year, whether she wants to or not, and Alaska is going to get an Alaska value senator in there. That's what's happening. Good. I hope so we're talking to Kelly Chewbacca. Kelly, I got about a little less than two minutes left, but I'd be doing my audience and disservice if I didn't get an answer for you on the Mar-a-Lago rate. It is the story that is just sucked all of America into this just vortex of what appears to be another episode of targeting Donald Trump as a former federal agent who, you know, swore to protect and defend the constitution in the United States and men every word of it. I find this constant targeting of Donald Trump to be abhorrent. And if you get in the United States Senate, will you be looking into this? I hope the answer is yes. Absolutely. You know this well and so do I have started my career out overseeing the FBI and then did so for, oh gosh, maybe a total of 14 or 15 years in various positions, I'm concerned about this the same way you are. This is an issue of equal protection under the law. We have situations where sandy Berger and Hillary Clinton weren't held to the same standard. We have to wonder why they didn't just go and enforce the subpoena that they had, you know, that would have been less intrusive alternative to the search warrant. That's a force amendment issue. These are the questions our senators should be asking, they're the linebackers for the constitution. These are the questions I would be asking. If I were still in my watchdog capacity, that's what the senators are supposed to do. So I'm happy to take up that position. My opponent's been completely silent on this. I mean, she condones the politicization and weaponization of law enforcement under Biden. That's wrong. Of course, she's quite. She loves this. She can't stand Donald Trump. Kelly, what is your website if you could just say it so our audience is Kelly Chewbacca. Make sure you vote tomorrow in Alaska. This is not, it's an Alaska seat, but it's not folks. It's a national seat. Only alaskans can

Briefly NXP Semiconductors the second biggest supplier of chips to the automotive industry delivered a strong forecast for the current quarter driven by demand for components that are used in cars. I'm Charlie Powell at that Joe Matthew is a Bloomberg business flash. Charlie, thank you President Biden continues his recovery from COVID, White House kicked out a tweet showing and working on the balcony with the suit and aviators and the dog for that matter nearby this morning and then the president spoke a little later saying he's feeling fine. He was addressing an event about the chip act virtually, of course. And he's not alone with this if you haven't heard senators Joe Manchin and Lisa Murkowski both announcing they've tested positive. So Manchin could make life even more difficult for Democrats as his in person vote would be needed for never mind negotiating a reconciliation plan. Of course, this was already challenged by inflation and growing expectations for a recession. Not that everyone sees a recession the same way. Listen to treasury secretary Janet Yellen on meet the press. A common definition of recession is too negative quarters of GDP growth or at least that's something that's been true in past recessions when we've seen that. There is usually been a recession and many economists expect second quarter GDP to be negative first quarter GDP was negative. Yes, it was, and two in a row. Well, there you are. Now the RNC was quick to pounce on what they see here as a White House trying to change the definition before GDP comes out Thursday. Even Michael Burry, you know, big short fame called out The White House on Twitter over this. So for those of us, well, I mean, we should hear from Janet Yellen. Again, this is, again, on meet the press with the back and forth. Listen to the back and forth with chuck Todd. I would, you know, one that we should be not characterizing that as a result. I understand that, but you're splitting hairs. I mean, if the technical definition is two quarters of contraction, you're saying that's not a recession. That's not to take. No. That's not the technical definition. Okay. And that was noted in The White House blog last week, by the way, which got all of this going, green John Pierre, followed up on it, and now the interview on meet the press with Janet Yellen. So, The White House is wrestling with this definition publicly at least of a recession. And so for those of us who are not economists, we thought we would go to school to start things off before we talk to Mark zandy. A quick lesson with Bloomberg economics editor Mike McKee. All right, professor McKee, what is a recession? Well, we can tell you what a recession is not officially two quarters of consecutive contraction. That's sort of a long-standing common definition that isn't what economists use. The economists favorite is the national bureau of economic research's traditional definition, which is a significant decline in economic activity, spread across the economy that lasts more than a few months. They use about 8 different indicators to decide whether or not we've seen that kind. Of decline, and how long would it take for them to determine that? It often takes up to a year after it begins for them to know because so much of our economic data is revised and so it's hard for the fed to know exactly where we are at any one time and NBR doesn't either so they wait. Professor Mike McKee, thank you so much. I'll bring an Apple next time. Okay, and that's where we begin with Mark zandy, chief economist at moody's analytics smart, welcome back. It's good to be with you, Joe. Thanks for having me. So we've been talking for months about whether the U.S. is heading for a recession as the fed Titans. But now we're arguing over the definition of a recession

What i don't expect is for republicans as say they're fiscally responsible for republicans at say they want smaller government because they understand that big government means that we the people grow smaller and smaller smaller in our impact on politicians grow smaller and smaller and smaller. Didn't expect them to participate in this. But i expected the mitt romney's other world because he's a he's virtually democrat. But it's very disappointing. So it's very important that you elect fighters to office not just a republican per se but fighters. I want you to hear this clip from From larry elder audio clip number five. This is what a fighter sounds like. So what is your position on this. Do you believe in manmade climate change and global warming. I've never said climate changes. And i decided you to find any where i've said that i have talked about climate change. Alarmists climate is always changing. Climate is changing. The question is what we do about it. Do we do we deal with the effects of it or do we four-speed a fossil base. A renewables based economy down the throats of a people jacking up the price of energy a disproportionate pain for for pete. That's the question. But of course there's climate change in the climate is getting warmer by maybe about a degree or so in the last several years and it likely will continue. The question is what do we do about so you do believe that. Fires for instance in california have gotten worse because of climate change. I'm not sure is because of climate change. Fires have gotten worse because of the failure of this governor to engage in sensible fire suppression. He lied about about about obstetric seven. How many fallen trees and dead vegetation look at people that have forced on of they don't have the same kind of severity of fires as as the public lands. Do i'm going to hire the best experts. And and make sure that we do the kind of force management. That's necessary in order for us to to reduce the severity of these these artists. All right larry elder. We appreciate you being here. We hope to continue the conversation over the coming weeks ahead of the recall september. Thank you thank you and we do wanna point out that many times that we have extended an invitation to governor newsom to join us to give him a platform as well so far. His team has declined. Of course his team has declined. Because what what gavin. Some doesn't want to is make this a race. Between he and larry elder it would be much easier. This is why i employed many of you in the listening audience You know if you live in california. I will be telling these other guys to get out of the race understand that people. Some people disagree with me but this isn't a primary process. You get a once in a generation or once in a lifetime. Opportunity to recall a governor. Like this i i mean obviously it happened with a gray davis but before that it was i mean i it was a. It was a great length. Distance between gray davis in A recall election like that happening or occurring in california so this is an opportunity of a lifetime. This is an opportunity. I mean such a beautiful state. California's this is an opportunity to take it back to those days of old where it was nice clean you knew the good neighborhoods from the bad. I'm i'm telling you. I went to venice beach the last time i was there. I drove up Up to malibu. And not only was i looking at some of the nice housing out there. I was looking at all the the nice homeless tense. So who has the best homeless ten. Oh and that guy you can sleep to in there. i mean. It was absolutely astonishing to me.
