"Nomination but rap voted for a businessman Dave McCormick who conceded the very close race during a recount Taking a broad look at how Trump's endorsements have fared so far his win loss record is strong but a lot of that is because he backs frontrunners in high profile more competitive contests his record is more mixed Political strategist Sarah longwell is publisher of the bulwark website she's been watching the impact of Trump's endorsements Trump's endorsement is not a magic wand or a silver bullet But in certain situations it can provide a big boost especially in highly competitive races with lots of candidates In such races Trump support can mean more press coverage and create momentum longwell says that's what happened in Ohio's U.S. Senate contest Where there's a big group of Republicans and they're all battling it out and they're all telling the voters how terrible their opponents are And people are kind of not sure who they like And when Trump comes in with an endorsement it tends to kind of elevate people in these races But not all of Trump's picks get such a boost especially if they're taking on an incumbent Sarah longwell has been conducting regular focus groups with Trump voters including in Georgia where Trump endorsed the challenger to governor Brian Kemp Trump dislikes camp for refusing to help overturn the 2020 election in the state In these focus groups voters are identified by their first name only some of them were mad at camp but others this is Laura praised the governor citing the economy and his pandemic response I like what Brian Kemp by saying has done I liked how he handled COVID The state seems to be rent and smoothly to me Kept defeated his Trump backed opponent by 50 percentage points Georgia's Secretary of State Brad raffensperger another who defied Trump's false claims that the election was stolen also easily beat a Trump endorsed opponent Then there's this example in North Carolina where even a Trump endorsement couldn't save scandal plague congressman Madison Cawthorn in his primary Dallas woodhouse is a veteran political operative in the state Nobody is going to blame the president for Cawthorn's losses because Cawthorn had had a long series of self inflicted wounds but it does demonstrate how a Trump endorsement has limits Recognize also woodhouse says that in nearly all of these races it's not a choice between a Trump endorsed candidate and an anti Trump candidate Most every GOP hopeful runs on a pro Trump list of issues from building a border wall to getting tough on China with lots of cultural issues thrown in Any candidates that go forward are going to adopt those core issue sets that were part of the America first agenda And there's another potentially significant impact Trump is having in the primaries He's endorsing candidates far down the ballot for local races something unheard of for a former president Again Sarah longwell which allows people who are totally unknown and maybe even in many cases running on opposed for offices that people pay almost no attention to to raise some money to gain some profile building the bench of the Republican Party to really fill that with people who are very much in Donald Trump's image And that could end up being Trump's biggest impact on 2022 elections Don gagne and PR news The British government's new policy to send asylum seekers from multiple countries to Rwanda's in court today A ruling could affect whether the first deportation flight takes off tomorrow Villa Marx reports from London already this year more than 10,000 people in small dinghies have crossed the busy shipping lane that separates Southern England from the French coastline Of those that dare to make the dangerous journey many claim asylum upon arrival in Britain Late last year more than two dozen drowned trying UK authorities have spent millions to prevent these voyages paying French police to guard beaches and boosting British naval patrols But the migrants have continued to cross prime minister Boris Johnson's government recently revealed another response barring to transfer some migrants to Rwanda for their asylum claims to be processed in the African nation Interior minister pretty Patel defended this unprecedented approach in April to the House of Commons Change is needed because people.
Republican Leadership Never Took Madison Cawthorn Under Their Wing
"This young man Cawthorn who lost by really An eyelash And the Republican primary in the far west corner of North Carolina He may have had his faults It was a young man But the Republican leadership never took him under his wing You had former Republicans who were host on TV who were mouthpieces for their rhino brothers and sisters and just trashed the hell out of the guy Yet the drudge report trashing the hell out of the guy You had the Republican establishment in North Carolina trash in the hell out of the guy You had tell us the Republican senator who's a Mitch McConnell want to be trashed the hell out of the guy And just to show you what kind of a guy Donald Trump is he endorsed him in the final week or so of the campaign Even realizing it was going to be a tough race given all that had come He still endorsed him At a principle He's still endorsed him And he just conceded Unfortunately he lost So rather than take this young man who was in a terrible car accident so he lost the use of his legs from the hip down wheel wheelchair bound Rather than take him under the wing teach him the ropes and so forth and so on They went gunning for him Because that's what these bastards do
Stephen Miller Sends Well Wishes Following Madison Cawthorn's Defeat
"I thought Stephen Miller was pretty gracious about congressman Madison Cawthorn last night. On Laura Ingraham's show, the Ingraham angle on Fox News channel. Well, he suffered a great personal tragedy, and we should just all wish him well. He is a bright future if he wants to have it. And he's been through a great ordeal. But I just want to say again, Laura, you are a 100% right about where the heart of the party is and where the heart of the American people are. We want our jobs here in the United States. We want our manufacturing here. We want our jobs here. We want our wealth here. We don't want globalism. We want America first.
Remember, Populism Is Not Conservatism
"And I don't dispute that he made some mistakes. I started my day with a knock down drag out with my pal Mark Davis in Dallas because Mark said, wow, we dodged a bullet. Why? I still can't hit the high notes. That's called doing a musical nonstop for three weeks and screeching and blowing out your voice. Yeah, mark's very excited that Madison Cawthorn lost. And I sort of tried with love and respect to get Mac marked to back off. We Republicans never know how to act. Unified. And Mark claims that it was all about finding the most conservative representative. Possible. And I get it. I appreciate that. But there is this, there is a populism that the establishment types can't stand. That's why they hate Trump so much. It has to do with the populist streak of trumpism. Populism is not conservatism. And some of us are having a more difficult time than others in reconciling the two.
23 Trump-Endorsed Candidates Prevail in Primary Races
"Of the 20 7 candidates, president Trump backed in last night's primary contests. 23 prevailed. Wow. How about that for a track record? 23 out of 27. Of course, the mainstream media will crow about Madison Cawthorn's defeat in North Carolina, president Trump endorsed the young man. Wheelchair bound after a car accident when he was much younger. Lot of angry rabbit activists targeted him. And I guess it was successful.
The State of the Right After Tuesday's Elections
"I wanted to cover two things with you. One, I've got a column over at The Washington Post that looks at Republicans interested in 2024 when I come back to that, but based on last night's election results. We got a dead heat in Pennsylvania. We won't know for a day who wins. Madison Cawthorn is out, Ted bud is in, et cetera, et cetera. What is the state of the right judging by last night's results? Well, I think broadly the right is still motivated by a lot of populist energy. It's still broadly supportive of president Trump and his agenda, the Trump endorsement matters, but it might not matter all that much, and I also think we can say that the rate is definitely energized about the coming midterm election and has a real advantage in enthusiasm.
Amber Athey: Same Story if Trump-Endorsed Candidates Win or Lose
"Primary elections huge Of course amber they want to make everything about Trump but I mean he does it get involved in this cycle He doesn't make it about himself but he chooses Some candidates who run for office and win George W. Bush He kind of stays out generally of the process He's done a few events for camp but he isn't like really dig in Donald Trump said you know what I'm not done man I'm jumping in and I'll endorse who I want when I won You know what Good for him But there's a lot on the line for him He threw a lot of his weight behind mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania And that's not just it You got Madison Cawthorn in a really hot congressional race in North Carolina will know about today and Ted Budd in the Senate race in North Carolina too So yeah these candidates have a lot on the line but a lot for Trump for Trump too Definitely And there's always this narrative that emerges after a Trump endorsed race finishes up and if he happens to have that candidate lose all of a sudden it's proof that Trump has lost his power and the Republican Party and he's not the kingmaker anymore But if you win then you get the opposite article that's talking about how the GOP is a bunch of Trump cultists So it's really impossible for him to win Even if he wins he loses In this case It's so wrong I'm really curious about the Pennsylvania race because this candidate Cathy Barnett has had a really late surge in the polls and is apparently neck and neck with Doctor Oz and Dave McCormick So I think that's the one to watch I have a couple of friends down in North Carolina right now working with Ted bud and it looks like he's going to just run away with this thing So I'll give you my eyes on Pennsylvania right now for sure

Why Won't Republican Leaders Mentor Rep. Madison Cawthorn?
"This guy representative Madison Cawthorn as a young man To young guy he is paralyzed from the waist down From a car accident He has said some things that are disagreeable He has said some things that he's had to walk back But you would think some of these Republicans would take him under his wing and give him advice and give him some direction help him along He didn't commit a crime He's not out to destroy America like so many in Congress are China's threat to anybody These young men is a patriot And yet the establishment Republicans Circle the wagons and start to destroy the guy

"Here. I'm good to have you on this. We're gonna get to Hunter Biden in just a moment, but this crazy story that's got all of Washington talking. And look, we know that crazy stuff happens up in Washington, D.C.. I know personally. I mean, I've been hearing people talking about this for years. And sadly, a lot of and that's why, and I will just full disclosure here. That's why some well-known conservatives are not welcome on this program because I know that they are really not conservative. And they're doing some really naughty things. And look, we don't want to we don't want to do anything. We want to bring true conservatives on this program. Hey, I want to go to the patriot mobile newsmaker line here at our beautiful Liberty University studios. Michelle woodhouse, who, by the way, I have endorsed so full disclosure. Support Michelle's campaign. She is running in North Carolina's all over the congressional district. This was Cawthorn's district, but he left that district, and we're going to have Michelle explain what's going on here. But I thought what better way to get a good peg on what people are thinking and the 11th congressional district than having Michelle on the program. So Michelle good to have you with us today. Good to be here, Todd. Thank you so much. All right, so somebody asked me this, why would Republicans run against a sitting congressman Madison Cawthorn and there's a very good explanation here? Absolutely. As you spoke to congressman Cawthorn decided in the midst of the redistricting we had going on here in North Carolina, we picked up a congressional seat and congresswoman Cawthorn decided to make a move over to the Charlotte market. And he made this decision in early November, made a move over there and decided that's where he was going to run. And he called me and asked me to step in and run as the America first conservative to fill the now open seat in the mountains of western North Carolina, presented my name as his recommendation to president Trump down at Mar-a-Lago. And then as the maps changed and congressman Cawthorn realized he couldn't win in the district he had moved to he decided to move back to the mountains and run in his old congressional district. So he asked you to jump into the race, he moves to what an Charlotte, a much bigger city. You guys are in western North Carolina, Charlotte, a much larger city. I suspect he was wanting to do that to raise his profile. And he got nothing wrong with that. And then when all that didn't work out, he's coming back and now he wants his old job back. Absolutely. Michelle, I want to get your reaction to the allegations that Madison Cawthorn shared in that podcast interview. You know, it's just one of a series of bizarre comments and bizarre behavior that we've seen from congressman costs or and really over the course of the last few months. And of course, we were shocked and alarmed to hear such allegations and voters in western North Carolina are just bewildered by his pattern of behavior and comments. People, you speak to western North Carolina, it is the God fearing hardworking, just salt of the earth communities. I mean, this is where North Carolina begins. And people are suffering and struggling under the failed policies of Joe Biden. We've got a crazy liberal coming out of Asheville who's running on the Democrat side and congressman Cawthorn's continued bizarre behavior and comments have put us now in a situation where if he were to somehow win this primary, the Democrats are going to take the seat. It will be a plus one and we'll wake up in November and Nancy Pelosi will still be holding the gavel, which would be an absolute and utter nightmare and his comments and behavior continue to tell people of western North Carolina. This is not someone that we can take seriously and we can not send.

"Guys. So my question is, okay, and if I had been hosting the podcast at this point, I would have asked a few important questions. First of all, who are these people? Who are these individuals? Well, I can't say. Okay, did you go to the parties? Did you turn down? Because nobody asked nobody to bother to ask that part of the question. And that was really disappointing. Because he's got a lot in his past too that has been out there and has been widely covered. We've had Madison on the program, and he's tried to explain it away, but there are a lot of accusations in his past. Yes. So what's going on here? This just shines a great big light on the Republican Party in Washington D.C.. And not in a good way. And I will say this, grace, it may very well be true, because I have heard there's a lot of stuff going on in D.C.. Of course. And ladies and gentlemen, I just want you to know, and you need to hear this from me. There are not a lot of good church going people up on Capitol Hill. And some of the people that claim to be good church going people are the ringleaders of all this nonsense. So it's not that I don't believe that this is going on. I just not quite sure I believe Madison Cawthorn's version of it. And we're going to get to the bottom. That's why we invited him to come on the program. And that's a big red flag for me because we've always been very friendly with Madison Cawthorn. Yeah. And I've noticed grace that there have been a couple of other lawmakers Matt Gaetz being one of them. They would beg to come on the program on a pretty regular basis, and then when something comes up that they don't want to talk about, it's radio silence. Pretty much. And that's just the way it is. We're just, you know what? And I know you, I know there are people on, well, there goes stars. I knew he was a liberal. I knew it. He hates back gates. He hates Madison Cawthorn. He's a liberal. No, I've got a liberal. I'm just telling you like it is. We believe in dealing with facts here on the Todd stern's radio program. That's what we do here. And the invitation is open, of course. If Matt Gaetz wants pardon me if Madison Cawthorn wants to come on and Matt Gaetz too for that, but if they want to come on and talk about this, I would say, come on down. But if I were, if I were MTG, I'd be like, dude, what are you doing? So we're going to be talking to some folks in his congressional district. This is just a weird story. And the Republicans are right to be concerned because they know how the media is. This will become a big story. And the media will be, I mean, you can't put this, you can't put this dog back in the pen as they say. You just can't. It's out there now. 8 four four 747 88 68. The chairman of the House freedom caucus says Madison Cawthorn, better name names. Or retract the story or say, you know what? I was just talking out the wazoo and you know it is what I was I was high on cocaine when I told the story, I don't know, just, you know, walk it back or do something, but what do you think here should he name names do you believe what Madison Cawthorn is saying that Republicans are engaging in.

That's legacy p.m. investments dot com. Life from the Liberty University studio in Memphis, Tennessee. It's common sense conservative commentary from Todd starnes. That's right. I love this American ride and hello America. Good good day to you all. I hope you're doing well out there, everybody. A good number of our listeners, you guys are facing some pretty nasty weather today, a you folks in bartlesville, Oklahoma, Tulsa. Across much of the state of Arkansas right here in my hometown Memphis, Tennessee. You guys are all under the gun today. Be careful out there wherever you might be this massive storm system is going to be slamming through much of the southern part of the country today, so you guys be careful listen to your radio station. They're going to give you all the information you need to keep you safe and up to speed. You're not going to find that in a podcast. You're not going to find that on the inter the Internet, but you will hear about it on your local radio station. And that's why radio is so vitally important. All right, that's your public service announcement for the day. Hey, can we we've got a lot to talk about today, and I want to start out by just full disclosure. We invited Madison Cawthorn on this radio program today. Madison Cawthorn is causing all sorts of controversy. By some comments, he made, and we're going to get into that. We're going to actually play the audio in just a little while. Madison Cawthorn was on a podcast and he was talking about corruption in Washington, D.C.. And he was someone brought up House of Cards. And if you haven't seen House of Cards, that was the Netflix show with Kevin Spacey. I was a huge fan of that show. But there was all sorts of godawful debauchery in that TV show. And it documents documents a lot of that in this fictional series. But Madison Cawthorn says, hey, this is not fictional. This is the real deal. This kind of stuff really happens, and he was talking about drug use and sex orgies. Well, I guess that's a redundant because orgies aren't well. Drug and sex orgies there in the nation's capital. So yeah, yeah, we hear all about the congressional Bible studies up on Capitol Hill, but we don't hear about the orgies that have allegedly been taking place and Cawthorn is spilling the beans. Now, here's the aftermath of all of this, it's a little disturbing, and Republicans are enraged. Enraged. Grace, their enraged. And I want to explain why. Because Madison Cawthorn is not hanging out with AOC. He's not hanging out with Nancy Pelosi. As a matter of fact, his BFFs, his base, if you will, are none other than Marjorie Taylor Greene, Warren boebert, and congressman Matt Gaetz..
Caller: Rep. Madison Cawthorn Is 'Already in Hot Water'
"I would say probably that I'll concede that there's not a solid ground for the anti Cawthorn assembly. And it's a small assembly. I wouldn't care if he runs or not. He's already in hot water for obvious reasons. Because I want to point out, wait a minute, what does that mean? I don't understand the obvious. What hot water is he in? Because he's not really tried to stay in a good sort of a split district here. We have just the equal amount of Republicans or Democrats. Okay. But he really oscillating or vascular whatever the word is toward the. Notion that whatever took place the last election, he oscillated and some of the supporters that probably voted him for first, but if I could get to my point. Wait, no, no. Wait, where did you go? You can't say something like that. Do you realize more than half the country thinks something peculiar happened last election? Why do you make it out to be that he's some crackpot conspiracy theorist? That's the majority of most Americans think something funky happened in November, Ken. That's your line which I didn't call him names. I really did. No, no, I'm just saying, my language is, that's not a crackpot theory. Most people think something peculiar with all the millions of mail in ballots and drop boxes. Madison Cawthorn has a very mainstream position. Why do you suggest that he's sort of out there on an island somewhere by himself? Okay. Well, I'll try to get to a point, but I will say this then. It's over 60 judges, 60 zero agreed with that there was probably not enough underhandedness over the last 11. Correct. All based not on
Rep. Cawthorn (R-NC): State Board Asserts Power to Suppress Voters
"Here he was last night cut 8. This is Madison Cawthorn appearing with Tucker Carlson on Fox News saying that this group of lunatics, these activists who are trying to invoke the Fourteenth Amendment and use some kind of North Carolina process to get somebody removed. I guess it's the Fourteenth Amendment. They get this, I guess it's a federal process to get somebody removed from the ballot, congressman Cawthorn says this group might just succeed. I can't think of a clearer assault on democracy itself than preventing voters from voting for the candidate of their choice. How close are they to preventing you from running for office? They are actually very close. Now what's going on in North Carolina is that the state board of election, a panel of 5 people is asserting that they have the ability to bar 740,000 plus Americans in my district from being able to elect me to send me to Washington to be their weapon to fight against the deep state. Why they're saying that this is a viable choice in North Carolina is because of the Fourteenth Amendment to the constitution. I'm sure that you were puzzled by as I was after following January 6th when they started saying that we were insurrectionists. Your seditionist, your traders. I thought they were just trying to get a flashy headline. But the reason they were trying to set this basis for fact is because they had a plan to execute a version of lawfare, hashed I'm sure by Mark Elias, the quarterback for a hijacking our lecture in 2020 to try and actually bar America first candidates from being able to hold office in 2022. Do you see why I don't care about Russia and Ukraine? Do you understand why I care about the United States? Justin Trudeau that out of control dictator in Canada is now poised to receive emperor like responsibilities permanently.
Rep. Cawthorn (R-NC) Threatened to Be Removed off Ballot for Jan. 6
"If, for example, a handful of zanies in the state of North Carolina succeed in preventing a duly elected member of the House of Representatives from appearing on the ballot, come November. These are the kinds of problems we've got to fix here in America. Madison Cawthorn, the freshman congressman from North Carolina. Appeared on Tucker Carlson last night to point out that this group of activists who believes that simply appearing at Trump's speech at the capitol on January 6th and saying we need to fight for our country needs to be a disqualifier to even appear on the ballot. You need to be stripped from being on the ballot. According to a group of lunatics in North Carolina, these smear merchants who try to turn anybody into an insurrectionist for simply believing in your country.
"madison cawthorn" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Hey everybody, Charlie Kirk here in just a moment. We will have my friend Madison Cawthorn, the youngest man ever elected to Congress. He's terrific and he's a good friend of mine, but I just want to say Madison Cawthorn is a true American. We're going to hear from him in just a second because he is being targeted by major international groups and Democrat groups I should say, but also international implications to try to get him not to run based on that story. We did a couple of weeks ago where a lot of you said, oh, Charlie, come on, it's not like they could disqualify people by just calling you an insurrectionist that is precisely what is happening to Madison and North Carolina. Madison Cawthorn is here. Congressman from North Carolina, buckle up everybody here, we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's run in The White House folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy, his spirit his love of this country. He's done an amazing job, building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, turning point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by my friends Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage, Triple H, Triple H 1172 or Andrew and Todd dot com. So what is a Republican? Is a Republican someone that can just give themselves that designation? Can you all of a sudden just become a Republican just like Michael Scott declaring bankruptcy? Just because you say you are a Republican does not mean you are a Republican. Now, I'm actually a registered independent. I'm a conservative. Do you get that? A Christian first and an American, then a constitutional is not a conservative, and then a Republican. I don't vote for Democrats. That's not the point. I just have lots of problems with the Republican Party. However, I am very pleased with what the Republican Party did in the last 24 hours. Our friend, who runs turning point action and also runs parts of turning point USA. And there's a great job and is the chairman for the Arizona Republican National Committee Tyler Boyer was involved in this now national news story. So what is a Republican anyway? Well, a Republican should be someone that doesn't pander to the left that isn't trying to achieve the aims ambitions and goals of Pelosi and Schumer, a Republican is someone who values the United States Constitution that does not want to use congressional overreach or power to try and destroy people's lives. A Republican believes in separation of powers in an independent judiciary. A Republican believes in checks and balances and consent to the governed. But breaking in the last 24 hours, the Republican National Committee is meeting in Salt Lake City. And they have issued a statement censuring Adam kinzinger and Liz Cheney for their involvement in the January 6th committee. The resolution quote would immediately cease any and all support for the two conservative Trump critics. It's said their behavior has been destructive. The House Republicans and the GOP, obviously, House representatives and GOP. Now, the significance of this is that Liz Cheney does not automatically get GOP or RNC support then in her primary campaign against Harriet. Hegemon, Harriet, I've known for probably 6 years actually. She's a wonderful person from Wyoming. She's terrific. Now some Republican members slam the move. Bill Cassidy, I've known Bill Cassidy for years, senator from Louisiana. He's such a nice person. But he's just so wrong lately. He's not just on this issue. What else was Bill Cassidy wrong on recently? There was something he was just so wrong and infrastructure. There was something else that he voted on that was so stunning. So Bill Cassidy says, quote, the scent RNC is centering Liz Cheney and Adam kinzinger because they're trying to find out what happened on January 6th. Is that what they're doing? Is that what Liz Cheney and Adam kinzinger are doing? Just trying to get to the bottom of the bottom of the store. Is that really what they're doing? No, they're using congressional subpoena power to go after people's private phone records. An unprecedented move against American citizens. They are making people spend tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of dollars to defend themselves because they went to a free speech protected rally and got nowhere near the capital. They held Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress. Because he wanted to exert executive privilege. Liz Cheney and Adam kinzinger are not just trying to find out what happened on January 6th. Amazingly, they're the ones that said, oh no, ray ups is not a federal agent. The first man ever to be declared innocent by the federal government. Despite ray ups himself saying that we need a storm into the capitol and seemingly almost orchestrating some of the events on January 6th..

"Okay, you teased it already. Antitrust related at the very least, what's our wild card? I don't even know. That's how wild it is. This is not two senators you would think of necessarily being united in a particular goal. This is a bill that has been drafted by Amy Klobuchar and Tom cotton. And it's an antitrust Bill, and it is combining the right wings, hostility to mainstream social media with the left wing hostility to giant corporations. And the resulting legislation is good legislation. So here's what it says. It says it shall be unlawful for a covered platform, but opinion in that. For covered platform operator to acquire directly or indirectly, the whole or any part of the stock or other share of capital of another person engaged in commerce or in any activity affecting commerce, the whole or any part of the assets of another person engaged in commerce or an activity affecting commerce, right? So here's what that means. The default rule is, if you are a covered platform operator, we're going to define what that is. But if you're a giant online multimedia company, then what it says is that by default, you can not buy another company. Now, that's the default you're restrictive. Yeah, totally restrictive. So what are the exclusions? The exclusions are that the covered platform operator demonstrates by clear and convincing evidence. That's the 75% standard. So not just more likely than not, but clear and convincing evidence that and then here are the full list of the exceptions. That the acquired stock are valued at less than $50 million. So there's the first would write off the bat if you're going, oh gosh, like, you know, they can't do anything. No, no, first 50 million is on you, right? To paraphrase as well. Or that the acquired assets or the issuer of the acquired stock do not compete with the covered platform or covered platform operator for the sailor provision of any product or service..

"Constitution of the United States are hereby removed from all persons whomsoever, except senators and representatives of the 36th and 37th Congress. Those are the people that they previously kicked out. Officers in the judicial military and naval service of the United States heads of department and foreign ministers of the United States, so entered May 22nd, 1872. James bop argument is, well, see, they. That means all persons whomsoever, Madison Cawthorn is a person, that's debatable, but so he falls under it, right? I have a real hard time believing that something from 1872 would be like so all insurrectionists are cool forever. For all time, for all you have a hard time believing that because that is the dumbest possible interpretation of the 1872 Amnesty act that you possibly mentioned. And the way to understand how dumb that is is, if true would have the effect of allowing an act of Congress to overrule an amendment to the constitution and like your high school brain should be civics class should be like, wait, wait, wait, that's not a thing that can happen. No, I'm surprised they even made this dumb argument. I expected a bunch of like, what are you talking about? It was a tourist incident. It was not an insurrection. It was all fine. Nothing happened. I just expected a bunch of that crap. I'm sure we're gonna get that as well. This was bop talking about how they're going to respond. I need to tell you that because North Carolina's gerrymandered congressional maps are also the subject of dispute. All of these proceedings have been stayed pending the resolution of who's in what district. So we do not have pleadings, we do not yet have a response from representative Cawthorn. We do not yet have a decision to go forward and constitute the state board of elections panel. And we won't until they've adjudicated what's going on with those congressional districts. But this was his lawyer speaking, saying, yeah. We think we're good because of the insurrection act. And if this is the quality of representation that Madison Cawthorn has maybe I should go back and up my percentages. I am sure they will make all those other arguments, right? The tourists and again, look, he has a non frivolous argument of on face of we don't generally impose sanctions on members of Congress for things they say, but insurrectionists it's a hard argument like medical argument to the contrary as a kind of like, but that's exactly what we did from 1865 to 1872. Yeah, did they only punish members of Congress who physically took up arms the Civil War? No. No, if you supported the confederate government, you were kicked out of Congress. It seems like speech to me. Yep. So this started off as kind of a one weird trick and it took a direction that I didn't anticipate. So it might be a one very legitimate tribe. Yeah. So we'll keep watching. Yeah. I think that's super cool. I love when we get those. So glad for the analysis, we'll keep watching. Your prediction. Okay, I want your prediction at least at what point do you think this might fail? How far do you think this will get? So I think we will get a ruling from the state board of elections. So in other words, they're going to try and move to dismiss. I think it's survives that. And I think the state board of elections convenes a panel receives evidence and that we get a decision from that state board of elections. And you want a bold prediction I will say this. I think the initial administrative decision will be from the state board of elections that Madison Cawthorn is not qualified to appear on the ballot. And then all of the legal challenges begin. And then it's a race against the clock, right? Because, you know, it's 2022. We've got a hard out in November. Yeah, and assuming that, well, I think probably sooner than that, I mean, assuming you would want someone else to have the ability to run, you'd want to give enough time to have a meaningful election. Yep, absolutely. So it's stayed right now pending a resolution of the map, but I expect that to be resolved rather quickly. And then again, all of these are going to be a race against the clock. Very interesting. What? And I think we have just enough time for a wild garden..

"Then it says the organizers planned a save America demonstration on January 6th to block to encourage people to rally to block the certification of electoral votes at this demonstration. They plan to push false claims of massive voter fraud and pressure, vice president Pence to refuse to count slates of electors from states with close contests. Organizers of that save America demonstration were in close contact with several members of Congress where their staff at this time, including representative Cawthorn. All right, that seems like a pretty good connection. Yeah, what's the power of this whatever body is making this decision to investigate subpoena documents do that kind of thing? Are they limited to? They absolutely may subpoena both documents and witnesses and compel them to test things. And they work with the one 6 community. I don't know. I'm going to talk a little bit about the procedural aspect, but I certainly would if I were on this state board of election. That's I certainly would reach out because evaluating these claims is part of their factual manual. So we have this statement this paragraph 42 on December 21st, 2020 representative elect Cawthorn encouraged supporters to quote call your congressman and feel free, you can lightly threaten them. Say, if you don't support election integrity, I'm coming after you. Madison Cawthorn's coming after you. Everybody's coming after you. I guess we will hear from Madison Cawthorn himself what lightly threaten means. On December 31st, Cawthorn announced that he would oppose the certification of Biden's victory on the basis that the 2020 election was marred by fraud and that he planned to object to results. That, I think, I want to say here as we kind of go through, Madison Cawthorn's primary defense on the facts is going to be legislative immunity, right? Yeah. That he's allowed to say and come to his conclusions about this stuff in the performance of his job as a member of Congress. It's complicated a little bit by the fact that in the pre January 6th period, he's not a member of Congress yet. He's elected, but he's not actually a sitting member of Congress at that point in time. So let's be super clear about the timeline here. Madison Cawthorn was elected in November, but until January 3rd, he is not yet acidic member of Congress. So a different standard applies to his statements made pre January 3rd, as opposed to post January. However, he then also wouldn't have taken the oath and therefore the whole reason he would be disqualified is if you took the oath and then did insurrectionist stuff, right? So he takes the oath on January 3rd. Yeah, I know, but you're talking about the stuff in December. Right. So anything he could have just devil's advocate here, he could have led ten insurrections before breakfast on January 2nd and it wouldn't violate the thing to get him on the ballot because it wasn't the language you have to have first taken the oath of office and then done any insurrection Y stuff. Wasn't that the language of it? That is exactly the language of the 14th of section three of the Fourteenth Amendment. That is exactly correct. So yes, the Fourteenth Amendment is based around it. You can imagine kind of post Civil War old timey like, well, it's not so much the treason that gets us as the breaking your promise. Yeah, it's very disappointed. No, I think about it that really didn't need to be in there. I don't need the like, okay, if as long as you hadn't promised not to do an insurrection, it's okay that you did it, you know? Just it should just be nobody who's ever done an insurrection against the United States government. I think that's how we would write it today. But not how it was written back in the 19th.

"Grounds for filing a challenge are that the candidate does not meet the constitutional or statutory qualifications for the office, including residency. So what we have and again, we have uploaded his delightful the verified affidavit from residents in Madison Cawthorn's district, have said, we believe, we have reasonable suspicion that he does not meet the constitutional qualification for the office because of what I just read about that there Fourteenth Amendment thing. And I need to tell you this 100% will survive a motion to dismiss. Wow, yeah. I mean, it just sounds so straightforward to me. Yeah. And by that, what I mean is that it will go to the elections board to investigate. And we're going to talk a little bit about if the procedure, section one two 7.5, then you're going to love this is the burden of proof. I'm very interested in how what's the standard of like, okay, what's an insurrection, what's participating in it mean and whether or not that all will be where this ultimately falls short. I'm going to talk about several potential defects. But let me cut to the punchline and say, when I first saw this, voters challenge Cawthorn's eligibility. I kind of put that into the one weird trick. Yeah, no, me too. Literally, I thought this whole time until you explained it, that that's what this was gonna be. So I do not think so. I think that this is a meritorious challenge for the reasons that I said for us. Now, great. At the end of the day, I don't say I don't think that I'm going to say that it is more likely than not that Cawthorn is kept off the ballot. Can't you let us have a nice thing? I would like to, but it's not, I want to say like, you know, 60 40, 70, right? Like, it's saying there's a chance. I'm saying there's a chance. And part of the reason that there's a chance is the way that this works, right? So you make the verified affidavit. It must be based on reasonable suspicion that the candidate does not meet the constitutional qualifications for the office. Well, the folks who have filed this registered voters in the 13th congressional district have reasonable suspicion that Madison Cawthorn participated in one 6, and they filed this notice of Candice challenge. Then what happens, this is the key part. Section one 27.5 says, burden of proof, the burden of proof shall be on the candidate who must show by a preponderance of the evidence of the record as a whole that he or she is qualified to be a candidate for the office. So a tie goes to the challengers, right? Wow. Keeps him off. So how do they evaluate this? This will go to an administrative hearing before the North Carolina state board of elections. Cawthorn's district, the 13th district, like everything in North Carolina is ridiculously gerrymandered. So it encompasses multiple counties. So the board of elections must appoint a panel of 5 members from each of the various counties that his district crosses over. And I need to tell you that both the state board of elections and those respective county boards are currently controlled by Democrats. Oh my God. The panel will then hear evidence, call witnesses and the statutory requirement is, quote, with information concerning the subject of the challenge. And can issue subpoenas may require them to testify under oath. And then the panel will determine whether Cawthorn engaged in insurrection for purposes of section three of the Fourteenth Amendment. And that decision can then be appealed to the North Carolina courts, and I know what you're asking. And the North Carolina courts, by the way, not a super liberal Jewish thing. If it goes all the way up to the North Carolina Supreme Court, yes, since they are interpreting the constitutional requirement, my reading is that Madison Cawthorn, if he even if he lost at every stage, would have the right to file a challenge with the U.S. Supreme Court and say, hey, look, who are you going to allow to have the final word on what the Fourteenth Amendment to the constitution means some Yahoo's in my home state or this August Supreme Court and the Supreme Court is going to say, yeah, no, we get the final words on what the Fourteenth Amendment means. So what that means is it must be an unimpeachably good interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment. That means you need to convince Roberts and somebody else. But I think it's worth talking about. I mean, I didn't know this was why it was going to fail in your odds that you were giving us. Effectively, maybe it doesn't matter, but I think it's very interesting to note that it won't be possibly due to the actual facts and the law it will be due to the Supreme Court just deciding to overrule it. Those are two very different things. I should bracket that a little bit. You could have a narrow factual decision that says Madison Cawthorn did not participate in the insurrection. That seems to be false. But you know, you could say just him publicly endorsing the things that people did is not sufficient to qualify as participating in the insurrection. That's where I think the factual allegations really come into play here. I don't know if this counts as insurrection, but he was part of trying to get different slates of electors in and all that crap. Would that be something you could bring in there as part of the total insurrection package? And is a part of that. So this objection is 34 pages long, beginning on at paragraph 36. So 11 pages in, it starts to draw this kind of web together and says, okay, there's a scheme to engage in insurrection to overthrow legally elected president, replace him with Donald Trump who was not legally elected. A key participant in this scheme was Mark Meadows. Then president Trump's chief of staff. Before becoming chief of staff Meadows had served as U.S. representative for the North Carolina's 11th congressional district, the seat that Cawthorn now occupies. During this time, Cawthorn forged or strengthened connections with Meadows. Cawthorn was nominated by Meadows to the naval academy in 2014 and worked as a staffer in Meadows North Carolina office. But did not know that, right? So intimately connected with Mark Meadows, okay, that's probably not enough..

"Had not, and I would be like, you would be very confused. Well, folks, my co hosts, this is my episode. Look, we don't kink shame here, but all right, Madison Cawthorn. This is an effort to get him expelled from Congress for being an insurrectionist, right? Well, it is an effort to deny him the opportunity to be eligible to be on the ballot. But yes, that is. And I want to say because there is folks could easily go back and hear my skepticism of these kinds of approaches generally. In general, I think I still feel this way, but Madison Cawthorn is just such an evil person that I'm happy to be called out for being inconsistent. I think I have said each of the following, right? That Ted Cruz, I think there's a really good argument that he is not a natural born citizen of the United States. He's a Canadian citizen. He is renounced his Canadian citizenship, but in terms of the qualification for the presidency, I think there is a much stronger argument applying those specific provisions as against Ted Cruz then certainly against as against Obama or John McCain or whatever. But I've also said mainly because Obama was born in the United States. Yeah. Kamala Harris, who was born in Oakland, yeah, John eastman has already teed up a racist screed about how she's not eligible to be vice president. It's disgusting and wrong. But I've ultimately kind of come down on the position that if Ted Cruz with the Republican nominee, I would not want Democrats to raise a court suit, challenging his eligibility. I would not want us to be waiting on pins and needles from the Supreme Court to say whether if that's who Republicans want to nominate. I compared it to, I think if the Democrats had nominated AOC in 2020, she would have been 31, right? Like, you have to be 35 to be president. I kind of feel like, I don't know why we put those restrictions in the constitution. I'm not a huge fan of it. So with that other way as kind of a background like, I think the people should get to if we had a 2020 election of AOC versus Ted Cruz, I would not want the Supreme Court to be able to pick who was the president, right? I would say let's just count up the votes. Just in case people don't remember those episodes, you're not saying that it's okay to just ignore the constitution when we don't feel like doing it. It's that this is one of those genuinely non justiciable questions, right? Where it's like, you shouldn't be having the Supreme Court. Even though it's right there in the text, this is something that in your view should be a non justiciable issue for the Supreme Court. Right, that they don't have the power to award the relief that you're seeking. Because the relief that you're seeking is to undo a democratic election to say, oh, we voted in Ted Cruz will now let's go to, let's go to the Supreme Court and kick him out. And I think that that does exceed the powers of the judiciary. Happily, and I love that you do that clarification because that is not the case here. This is very just this one. It is super duper justice. Okay. Just dish all over it. I will link the complaint in our show notes. But basically, you have the right as a citizen living in any particular jurisdiction. Set by state law when you live in a particular jurisdiction to challenge with the state election board, the validity of candidates who are running and for whom you are eligible to vote. You can challenge whether they can appear on the ballot or not. This type of mechanism is employed all the time. This is not a special or unique circumstance typically the two challenges that two kinds of challenges that are brought on the basis of ballot eligibility are brought number one alleging whether somebody actually lives in the district in which they're running or number two alleging that they have failed to collect the proper number of signatures that you need to be eligible to be placed on the ballot. And every election in every state, there are candidates who get challenged by this process and get kicked off the ballot because they're not eligible to be on the ballot. Yeah. And those two reasons again tend to be the two largest ones, but there are others. All you have to say is, under state law, this person is not eligible to be on the ballot. Well, the argument for Madison Cawthorn is, he is not eligible to be on the ballot because he participated in the insurrection. On one 6. And as it turns out, the little known section three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the constitution, which is also known as the disqualification clause, says no person shall be a representative in Congress, who, having previously taken an oath as a member of Congress to support the constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the state. Wow, it's right there, huh? Yeah. You know, it's almost like if you go by the plain meaning of amendments to the constitution, it says, yeah, if you previously took an oath to support the constitution, and then you went out and did the opposite of that thing. We can't see you again. Wow. And so how does that apply? Well, I'm going to talk a little bit about members of Congress who were not seated post reconstruction immediately after the Civil War. But here, with what we care about is with respect to Madison Cawthorn, it is North Carolina general statutes section one 6 two one two 7 and in particular subsection B which says the challenge to any person any Canada appearing on the ballot must be made in a verified affidavit by a challenger based on a reasonable suspicion or belief of the facts stated..
Morgan Zegers Asks Rep. Madison Cawthorn, What's Happening in D.C. Right Now?
"You guys welcome back. We have a very exciting guest that is on this segment. My very dear friend, congressman Madison, Cawthorn, is joining us. And we are going to talk about solutions, okay? Solutions in government and solutions in our own homes and our own lives because I really do think when you have stronger individuals, it will lead to strong family, strong communities, and a stronger country. Madison completely agrees with me on that one, and that's why I want him to provide some of his expert insight as a former homeschooled kid. Now congressman at a very young age. So do I have the congressman with me? Is he on yet? Morgan, I'm on. All right, hi there. How you doing? What are you up to? I'm doing fantastic just about to do an event for a dear friend of mine running for the Senate. So that's going to be great. But I can not think of anyone better to be filling in for Sebastian corker than an equally passionate freedom fighter like yourself. You're very sweet. Thank you very much for doing that. And thank you for sharing this time because I have some important questions, I think it's going to benefit all of the people listening and watching. The first thing, with everything with COVID, you know, I've already asked you this, but we talk more privately. Everybody is wondering what the heck goes on in Washington, D.C. because we hear things we hear promises we work so hard to get candidates in office. And then we just feel forgotten. You have insight into this that we will never see. What do you want us to know about what is going on behind the scenes? And is there anything we can do on that big picture level that we can change? And then I want to get your opinion on some more personal changes that Americans can make. Well, Morgan, as I'm sure most people listen to this phone call know that they are always 435 rooms of Congress, divided up per CAPiTA in each state. When you start working with that many people, they break it out to about 730,000 people represented by each member of Congress. I fully expect that you can call it my youthful ignorance that when I got to Washington D.C., I knew we were in the minority, I knew Nancy Pelosi would be in command. But I imagine that all 435 members would gather on the floor, we would all be there and then finance a closer to bring up. Because of crumbling infrastructure in Indianapolis, we got 43 American dying per day. What can the federal government do to assist in this help? And then we'd send our best orators. We'd send all our staff to go study. We'd sit there and we have a debate and be like, you know, I completely disagree with everything that you said except this one point. And maybe I can add that to my point. You'd find some great middle ground the way to actually help people. But the thing that is so sad is that whenever you watch me give you a fiery speech on the House floor, I'm saying Nancy Pelosi, you are not God. You then will notice that C-SPAN is very zoomed in on my face. They do this because they don't want to show the whole floor. They don't want to show there's really only ten, 15, 20 members of Congress on the floor at
Why Morgan Zegers Is Hopeful When She Hears 70% of Young Americans Prefer Socialism to Capitalism
What Happened When Morgan Zegers, Founder of Young Americans Against Socialism, Met Her Communist College Roommate?
"I had never heard the words bigot or xenophobe or misogynist before until my first day of college where we had diversity and equity training. Have you guys heard of that? And that was I think 5 years ago at this point. It was years and years ago, and it was just coming on the scene, and look how fast everything's changed in America, where now people are saying that they can just make up any gender or any pronoun that they want. But that's where I first learned these words of diversity training and everything that the left is now using to divide us with their cultural Marxism tactics. And of course, one of the worst stories was when they advocated for a segregated cafe on my campus. Now I tell you all this so that you understand college is a weird experience for most average Americans these days. But what really set me off and what started my journey into what I do now, I run the nonprofit young Americans against socialism. It was the moment I walked into a house off campus that I was moving into my last year. It turns out my roommate had a poster that just kept catching my attention as I'm trying to talk with her trying to get introduced to her. I'm trying to respect her with eye contact, but I keep looking to the oversight of the wall and I'm wondering, why is this drawing my attention and then I realized? It's because I recognize the men on a poster on her wall. It was Mao Zedong, Lennon, Stalin, Karl Marx and Fidel Castro, the poster said, welcome to the party. And these mass murderers and dictators that were on my roommate's wall had these party hats on, and they had these fruity little cocktail umbrella drinks. And I looked at her and I had no idea what to say. No idea what to say. And so I just looked at her and I said, what's that? What is that? And she looked at me with the biggest smile on her face, and she said, oh, I'm a communist. And from then on, you guys, you would think that little mess upstate New York daughter of a colonel served on operation Iraqi freedom served at 9 11. You'd think I would know what to say when I met a communist, right? I'm a big history nerd thanks to my parents, but no. I had absolutely no idea what to say to a communist with mass murderers and dictators on her wall that was giving me the same talking points that we hear all the time throughout the 20th century and from the leftists of America today that her version of communism if done right this time because it's never been done right before, would bring equity for all it would end poverty. It would support the working class and bring dignity to them, all the usual talking points. I had no idea what to say to somebody who was able to push that kind of rhetoric onto me. And it was such a disappointing

I mean this is really a state-sponsored in really the largest state-sponsored human trafficking our operation in the history of the world. I believe a uc right now that you have human traffickers you have these these coaches who traffic people across the border who are now literally saying as reported by axios that the that they are trying to sell to these would-be migrants. Who are hesitant saying. Oh no no. No joe biden has open border policies. You go So this completely falls on his lap. All of the human tragedy has going on. Our southern border is completely wrong. I think we need to halt all immigration to we can get a handle on. What's going on our southern border and fix our immigration system. We need to watch out for americans and that's our entire duty. He has a way with words. I'm going to use that with your permission. It is without a doubt. The largest government spun said case of human trafficking in the world and that government sadly is the biden regime follow him at cawthorn dot house dot gov and on twitter at rep cawthorn..

"Oh there's a different way to live. That isn't so miserable. I completely agree with that because a lot of these people live inside of these cities because they feel like they need you for work. But i promise you live outside the city you own your own land you bring your own land up. You will feel so much more spiritually wealthy. Yeah yeah so what's next for you. I know if if you're able to pass what you wanna pass you won't be here forever. So what what would be next for you. What would be the bath. You know what i would dash. There's so many different things. I've got so many years ahead loved rated. My family enjoy that. I wanna get income taxes out. Federal income taxes gone and terminals and congress here federal income. Tax completely eliminated. Yes and so what would be not look. This is going to be a whole other to our conversation. I haven't heard you say this. So what what's the path path for that is just that you're taxed enough already. I mean literally you're taxed when you make money taxing spend that money then you're taxing to keep the things that you bought jewelry tax on and then when you die your tax on those that again. It's insane and so i think we need just completely over simplify our tax system to where basically you just spending significant amount of money on the tax would be higher on consumption right so you've sales tax sales tax property taxes. Okay but then you don't have to pay taxes on your income. And that i think they would make everything so much easier interesting. And because i'm really. I mean you believe the fourteenth of the eighteenth amendment to constitution that allow congress's start taxing your income. That was never supposed to be a thing right because really your money is your money in usually. I think that you know then. We should tax people if they would like to use our infrastructure in the markets that we have built in the system that we've built for you to be able to buy things then you pay tax to keep everything up keep provide for the military but the money that you make is not the government's of course. Yeah how's how's married life. What's that's relatively new. So i'll tell you being a good member of congress and being a good husband hard line to walk. I imagine my wife is tough as nails literally. She's her skin is so much thicker than minds. Gotta be. she's just bad ass super super attractive super smart super funny most fun down to earth woman i met and she still hanging out with. How does how does she deal with the personal attacks and vitriol towards you. She gets so much angrier than i do. I mean she she'll just choose out of their face. They believe what they want. They they have a concierge. Right redress the government but yeah but the personal attacks against me i mean she gets upset about it and then you know the the classic attacks. We always get your racially. I'm hispanic a haitian bound and so but but you know what. I really try to insulate her from the political world. I mean. I think i would come to fisticuffs whatever force their way to try interviewer. She just keep press away from the limelight. She's a she's in grow person. But i don't think she needs to suffer for my job. That's a good point. I mean i think that is part of our job is men is not not to shield them from of course but you're the protector saying between them and the chaos i believe. Yeah there's a great quote it's the real man gains renowned by standing between his family and destruction absorbing the blows of fate with equanimity. And so as you say that phanom. It's and so as you say that that's what i think you know. You're standing there between the media between the attack between this and the that between them and her with equanimity calmness clarity coolness. Wow that's phenomenal that's exact- and it i mean you you. You're very jealous. I'm going to catch up soon. But you've got more kids than me. I'm gonna get very executive you're going to catch up.

You go my conversation with representative madison. Cawthorn i hope that you enjoyed. I know anytime. We have a political discussion.

"Is voting. We will be putting a term limits bill on the house floor. Congress has that what's the farthest to like that has has died for dr dead on arrival. Why would anybody vote themselves out alexander so we will be that on the house floor and like you said. Is it a conflict of interest. And i think he's probably twelve to twelve years six terms in congress and when we put that that on the house floor. I'm actually going to say to the people that i'm making this promise you. I'm not going to be helping you. So much is not gonna make urine idolize. Better that much ryan it really is. What is actually going to. Change is the last virtual because i think the only way to get people to vote for that and if you grandfather everyone is already in congress in to a their. Their clock starts that next election. They then have twelve more years right because the thing is nobody's gonna vote themselves out of course selfish. Why would they do that. And so i think that if we have a grandfather clause where they then get to be. They have another twelve years no matter if they've been here twenty or thirty which i i hate. I would love to make sure like. Oh hey no career politicians for but it's really far children right. How's that how's that you said you haven't presented yet. No i have not. I need to go get some more friends elected. I that's what i. That's what i was wondering is how that process works. What's the steps. How it's being received that sort of thing. Yeah so. I received this on a If we were to put this as a the country vote on this would pass right away. Almost eighty percent of american. I'm sure everyone recognizes but people want to do it because it gets them out of their power and so before we endorse anyone. That's a question we will actually ask them and say. Hey you know what. I will come i can. I can literally make a huge difference in your election. I was down down my weapon. He will be there. You will teach you or on ground game we will get your fundraising we'll read. What's your weapon. That's a that's manager is blake blake. He's right right across all best friend. Bronze my official office campaign office does it all. And he's literally. I mean i. You'd never want him on your podcast. Because he's just so robotic you'd be okay. Yes i think it gave you sufficient answers. I've done i mean he's he's got elaborate. No that's it. Nobody gave you the answer. Really good guy you can trust him literally when he says something that is the word and that is the truth right He's he's very robotic and he's he has little skills that i do not half but he's great at building systems building organizations. You know the reason we were able to win our election against a lot of career politicians and a bunch of people that do this reliving is because we played our game like moneyball. we're totally out of the norm. No one's ever ran election like this but what are some of the things you guys did differently. Hasso normally you know. I need about three hundred ninety thousand votes to my election. Okay not three hundred ninety three and so instead of because we have people after every speech. Hey man i love to help you believe in everything you're saying. What can i do if i walked up to your incredible your highest achieving human. Being if i said hey man. I need three hundred ninety three thousand votes. You say that's great. I mean i got. I got kids. I don't know if i can do that right. But if you to me. And i said okay. Cool what neighborhood do you live in. Then bring up an app that he designed then go through it. I would say oh. You live in a rugby nole. So that's a great great neighborhood cool. I need seven votes at that neighborhood right. Can you get seven people to say they will vote for me and election day. Call him back up. Make sure they've already voted and dependable. Sure yeah i know seven people of course right and so we. We broke our election down to bite size pieces and to where we we didn't just know our total vote number because a lot of people who run elections. They don't even know how many votes to win asked night. Yeah that'd be the first thing you would think so but a lot of people then some of them get elected and just like when i first got up here. I always thought to myself how that. I like to praise but now look at these people. How did they get elected seriously. But i endorse somebody we will. We will really back them in their locked. We'll send him down to the have teach their campaign team the plan. So you okay. Here's even get all your county maps. I'll teach you how to highlight of all right and then we'll teach utilize a volunteer force. This is interesting because when you're talking about Presenting this bill. This term limit bill. You're you're not just presenting the bill. You're thinking about the entire game plan which means that. I need to get other people elected. Who will vote for this bill right. Yes that's gotta be the fun part that strategy that game that's exceeding allowing to happen seeing it work. That's pretty so my plan is we will introduce this bill Probably one term before my last term And then you know lord willing to get reluctant people of western carolina so love me. Hopefully they could change their mind. That's their that's their progress but my plan is right before i plan to spend my last time. I will introduce it one term before that. Because then i expect it to pass that first time i hopefully all gotten a good contingent about fifty people left by the who can who believe in it And in the people who voted against it. I will remember their name. I will go to your district. I will beat you. And then it's so that that i think that's what it's gonna come down to but we will hope it doesn't because right now i make the most sense we you tournaments on politicians and bureaucrats. Sure people shouldn't be here but anyways when you're saying bureau kratz you're saying non elected non elected type. Humans who are not. It's almost impossible to fire bureaucrat. The strong united me it. Won't you fire somebody that they have to have the ability to go i apologize. I'm checking four. Yeah you're okay. Once these people get hired. I mean if you wanted to fire one of them then make they. They say they have to go see a specialist and they said oh. You know what my father actually yelled at me when i was eight years old old if they suffered a childhood trauma we have saved that into account so we actually discriminating against people who've faced traumas. So know you're big and they of course it's awful. The positive now blake is a political appointee people in congressional offices. The reason they work so hard because they're political appointees i can fire them with no recourse. No reasons sure. Serve the pleasure office. Yeah and and your Voters trust that. You'll make the best decisions. If they feel like he won't exactly yes right. Yeah and so but really. I genuinely believe the whole thing is to send the power back to the states. I you know. I think we chef fifty incredibly robust in different states and were. Some things are legal in some states. Were others aren't and so then. You can choose where you wanna live. And that's the beauty that's that is more available than any other time in history right. I'm talking about being able to move from california to maine maine in texas texas to north carolina. Whatever we've got the infrastructure you can literally drive there. And i think actually covert his enlightened us quite a bit as to. Oh you mean. I don't need to drive into the city every day and commute four hours a day to get to this job that i hate and people are realizing this is one of the silver lining of the reaction cove is that people have realized..

"Tell me what i can do to fix this. I don't like the direction countries going. That's what i've finding. And i'll tell you what is going on with the national party. I'll tell you here. in congress. The prison currently have lead is leading us in our whip. And probably the fourth. What is what does that whip. So i mean literally think about every whip and congress has literally given actual weapon they hang on everything so you're supposed to whip the votes so they they are responsible for going out in executing. The party's vision and be interesting. I don't know why you're not voting for this. And i'm going to either give you care oral whip to do so god and so. That's that's the that's what a weapons and they'd probably say command and then as you go down the line you'll see that because it's actually a popular election up here once you win. You're election back home. You have go straight into another election among all your peers. Mike we about two hundred nine. Okay you're in congress. I've two hundred ninety two. Did you have to convince to vote for you to be leader and right now. A lot of conservative politicians well over fifty one percent of them were elected under our previous president with at the top of the ticket and so they're very conservative. Very populous minded very people oriented right. And i'll tell you. I think our our leadership in our party is actually taking note of that. Unlike a lot of the national party asked him. And they're kicking asking me. And i actually our messaging battles. It's great the reason why you're seeing such a good coalesced message from my side of the aisle in in here's because the messaging is on point what most members believe. So we're actually capable of all. Yeah i can get behind that. Let's go do it. I'm actually. I'm really glad to see guys like yourself doing it stepping up and speaking up because i've heard for so long this concept of the silent majority and there's even people who tell me he's like there's going to be a bunch of people who like this this particular podcast because we're talking about politics because i'm talking to you and it's like i'm sick. A plan the silent majority game. And that's what everybody's talked about and they say things like oh well wants to silent majority wakes up and like well wake up. What are we waiting for. Really dollars in debt or children are gonna have to pay to unbelievable knots taxes. Well and even. I mean even if you wanted to talk about the debt on both sides of the aisle every i'll spend spend spend spent. It's not your money to spend and it doesn't seem like like the people here are understanding realize that an acting accordingly right because a very frustrating. It's incredibly frustrating to people who say that they are would get upset about this podcast because warmer focusing on politics when we're talking about shocking to me those things is i would say you know what this you've got to get over that people just need to get over. We don't talk politics because it's hard to talk about. Politics requires a lot of critical thinking and we might be on different sides of the aisle and people might not agree with every position. I take but you know what. I think that people who do podcasts. I'll go on podcasts. While the other side of the aisle things these i just think. I want to get my messenger as much as i can because i believe my message i do But you know what it's it's it's based on values and i think what we need to do is come back around. Values not get so caught up in incremental. Gdp increases at the end of the year or get so caught up in corporate. Tax price was focused on dying with politics. You've got four young kids yet let's focus on making their life better. what what. What are you talking about the dining table. That can make your life better. And so i'll focus so much on diary politics. I think most people would say including myself. The thing that a politician can do to make my life better to stay out of it boom and this this is actually kind of what So where's the balance. Well one more thing about this is what i gene belief when they politician hoping about federal politicians. Because induna you save your life. We should be focused on. Warsh be focused on trae which infrastructure we focus on the new radio power constitution not all these other agencies. Who are telling you what to do in your life. I'm telling you we should all that back or governor should become so kick ass like rhonda's santa's they. I don't care about what your tyranny wants to be here at your federal thing. My state doesn't believe that's a good that which is how it was how it was established and how it should be exactly answer to the people that are that are to your podcast. You're like oh you know. I don't like the fact you're talking to him. Whatever just know that. I'm trying to become incredibly unimportant your life. I'm trying to be the make our power here in congress so limited that you don't even care what i think that my opinion just doesn't matter that much so that's i believe you when you say that i'll preface with that but that is also a conflict of interest with your job. It is so how do you balance so one of our number one. Things that we're going to be doing is voting. We will be putting a term limits bill on the house floor. Congress has that what's the farthest to like that has has died.

"Steffi's some people say right. We everything we say. I want you to. You know. someone's lane a better night's like you know. He did really bold way. But now i think that that actually hold a lot of merit in. He actually really backed up with a lot of a lot of data. and so. we're very careful what we say. Dork on message disciplined be finding targets even correctly. So everything we say we can defend in a very articulate manner right and i think that's that's something that we're it makes us where you're not just making a name for yourself. You actually believe these things because the right yeah so that so you said calms director. Is that what you said. Communications director. Yeah so that's that's something. I haven't really it makes sense but i haven't really considered that so their strategy that's going into okay. We're going to talk about it in this way. Or here's how we're going to frame this message or this bill that we want to pass this all the time because you know what i you have to accept the fact that a lot of people group in different cultures and some words that you might some phraseology that you might use might not make any sense to other people If i say yeah let me is really just basically the width of a hauler talking. You know what i'm talking about. But people union flatland are people who live on the beach. What the heck is he yelling all right and so you know it. It's great to have a know. I've got my legislative department about five people. I've got my communicators apartment. Me about three. And then and that's a large communication by the way most people only have one. Is that your decision or decision. Okay got it mainly. Because i believe that we are in a cultural war right now for our country and if we are not as tactical and aggressive as we can be on the offense than we allow the other side to control the narrative completely. And that's why we boosted to three people and then but you know fortunately were able to compensate that 'cause most people have to front desk assistants we actually have an unlimited list of interns who are willing to work force. It's green so we were able to see to compensate or fix fixer. Fix that deficiency. We add in only having one front desk one front desk worker by having a lot of insurance and still. We have that strong concentrating. But again i want to run things by people i everyone in my staff has the right to question my decisions. So you can. I normally always. Do you know if they question. I can only defend it perfectly but sometimes like you should be able to. That is a fantastic point. You just made. and so. that's why we have communication barbeque because we don't have a strategy. We do a lot of people. You'll find just kind of get off not start spouting off the mouth and the next thing you know i've got some great debaters my on my staff and so we will sit there and be like if we were to attack this position. How would we do it right and so we never want to. you know. put ourselves in a corner. it's as they take. You know they could bring up this fallacy. Then all of a sudden number corden and so there's a communication department. I'm not somebody who i don't necessarily use Focus groups because a lot of law politicians are like well. I don't wanna use any words. They had been ran through a focus group one thing level of donald trump. You know the one thing i joined really enjoyed about him was that you kinda knew what he was thinking because he just said it right. Yeah so i want to be a little bit more than that. But i do want people to know what i'm thinking. What i how. I feel and i think people like that.

Great so gents enjoy this conversation. Representative cawthorn great to see you. Great to be here. We've got the tour to the family and everything ryan. I'm trying. I'm so glad you guys came up this. This has been the highlight of my week. no doubt his obviously. I always say the people here in washington not normal americans. They're not not god fearing family loving. Just just good hearted people and so it's good to have some normalcy here so i'm glad you came in. Do you think it. Do you think it's what is it that attracts like you say they're not normal. People so is it. Is there something that is attracting that type of personality or personally you. i'll tell you one. I actually think that for the most part is this place attracts the best people. Really do i really think he tracks patriotic best people but then when they get here all that idealism slowly gets chipped away at and turns into pragmatism then you become more and more and more pragmatic and then he's like okay. Well if i really want to affect change. I should wait till i get to this next Power i'm going to do what i have to do here to be able to get there and you know people will just understand what i really can change the problem is inequity skit next echelon power you wrote a lot of roadblocks now any the next echelon of power and then all of a sudden you realize it's been ten fifteen twenty years you haven't done anything for the people you purported to come here for right and then you but you've calloused. You're your conscious in your heart and you're willing to do anything to gain more power and it's almost just become a habit and a game to you to gain more power. Were not actually do anything with it.
