Sometimes it is difficult when you bet out of a job for longtime. We're trying to help.

"Five four six two six as the constitution. Mandates a new congress will convene at twelve noon eastern time this coming day, January the third, and that's what they will do and Nancy Pelosi becomes the new speaker of the house that will certainly be the lead to the story. If you will we're talking with Julie Gracia Brodsky, Capitol Hill reporter at the hill dot com. Is there any remaining questions whatsoever about her getting the requisite two hundred eighteen votes to become speaker? Is there even the remotest possibility that some recalcitrant Democrats on the left would withhold their vote forcing President Trump to make good on his promise to have her elected as the face of the Democrats, no matter what? I think the odds are very very very allow. I mean, anything can happen. It stays world. I don't think anything in politics. He can shock me anymore. But I I would be definitely caught off guard. I mean, there's still a few detractors a lot of the freshman vowed that they wouldn't. The floor. I I mean after she managed to lock down that you'll with Tim Ryan and Seth Moulton. I think I think she should be good to go that really there is really anybody. Who's a focal point is there. I mean in order to have a successful challenge to congressional leadership. There has to be somebody who steps up and says, I'm the person and other. There's nobody doing that. Is there? Exactly. I mean prior to her locking down the nomination and caucus. There was talk of Marcia fudge, stepping up that she she got a chairmanship and. Throw her endorsement behind Pelosi. So yeah, I don't really see a scenario unless something really creepy happens tomorrow morning where where she ended up going down on the floor fair enough. Alright. So it'll be speaker Pelosi. And of course, new committee chairs coming in a number of them, quite intriguing, of course, Adam Schiff at intelligence, Maxine Waters at finance. And of course, Jerry Nadler, the House Judiciary committee chair coming in. And is it just my impression or has? He since this has become a fate accompli. Has he been using the I word less that is to say impeachment. The closer he comes to being able to actually engineer such a thing has he been using it less now. Democratic leadership sources that I've talked to have tried to tamp down impeachment threats. Launching their there's going to be a fluid investigation one hundred hundred and fifteen congress picks up. But I I mean as of right now, I I haven't I mean, it's been floated by a couple of people, but I actually like as far as the chairman and leadership go, it seems to be not in the cards at the moment. Whether that happens down down the road, depending on what happens with investigations the possibility, but it's kicking off the hundred and sixteenth congress. I don't see that happening. Now, we'll come back. We'll get a few other areas that have to do with the possibility of of playing Monty hall. Let's make a deal here. But before we even do that, we all know, of course, what will happen if the congress comes down in your face, Donald Trump. We all know how the president reacts to in your face. It's in your face right back. Confrontation nose-to-nose eyeball to eyeball at presumably gridlock. Right straight through to twenty twenty at least, legislatively speaking. So what do you think the likelihood is that that is the path? They will take that perhaps the impeachment process will not be brought about but there'll be investigations right left and sideways enough that it will provoke the president which presumably if the Democrats do that they're essentially saying we're not interested in in legislation or interested in issues that we can take to the electorate in two years. I mean, I think the the investigated. I think you'll definitely have an impact on the election. Come twenty twenty. I mean, how that impacts whether or not President Trump gets primary or. I think there there's a lot of different outcomes with all the different investigations, whether it's tax returns or. Moeller investigation. There's so many factors. Have yet to be seen? It'll be interesting to see how it all pans out. Yeah. It it will absolutely back in the category of making a deal. If in fact, the atmosphere is ripe for that. We mentioned infrastructure and immigration ObamaCare. Go less a personage, the Mitch McConnell who will be calling shots in the Senate has taken note of the fact, although we didn't phrase it like I'm going to phrase it, but the Republicans had two years for repealing and replacing ObamaCare as they had promised to do and they royally managed to not get that accomplished. So now, there'll be no repealing and replacing of ObamaCare. And so a lot of people out. There are dependent on what he is in some ways an ailing program, and they're stuck with it some of the old infrastructure from before the Affordable Care Act being passed as gone. So even for those who are adamant about wanting to get rid of it. They have to patch it up. Do they not at least for another two years? Now, I think they might have to I think President Trump somebody to kind of like winning almost more than partisan politics. So whether or not, I think the ways and means committees and energy and commerce committee is kind of work better in a bipartisan basis and a lot of the other committees. I mean, obviously, the Republican Bill when went down in flames in two thousand eighteen whether they'll be able to patch that up in kind of come together for that. It'll be interesting to see how the out, but I know that healthcare is a large part of why Republicans lost the house and during the midterm. So I think that especially with the court case with the ObamaCare. I think a lot of them are are worried about how battle factor into the race in twenty twenty. And of course, we've already had criminal Justice reform. So this granted was in in the lame duck session. But nonetheless. A certain amount of bipartisanship involved. So it is it is possible for the two sides to work together. If not the areas that I brought up you see other areas. It looked likely in terms of of some kind of collaboration for for mutually agreed upon interest. I think there's always in every congress. I think that'd be more more stone. With criminal Justice forum infrastructure is definitely something that's been talked about whether or not the that'll happen with the deficit. It seems more and more unlikely. But I I definitely think there's going to be areas where I think especially with some of the younger members coming in the things like climate change. Able to work together across the aisle and looking at the if you will the young Turks of each party, of course, a number of Democrats ran scared after Joe Crowley was defeated. One of the veteran, the House Democrats by Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. And there is this looking over their left shoulder a feeling I think among a lot of the leadership. Now looks like these folks are not going to be able to unseat speaker Pelosi. But to what extent will they have a safe, so a sway tugging the Democrats further to the left. I think I mean, we already saw with policy kind of term limiting herself. Obviously, these things are having an impact with people wanting kind of younger voices, whether it'll pull to the left or the right. I think she I think she's going to be dealing with this actors on priorities that she has on both sides, whether it be moderate Cirque progressives, which actually might make her job more difficult than it was for speaker. Ryan. Don, I think the new makeup of congress is going to make for a very interesting. Matter of fact, briefly how long did she say she would serve a speaker? Did she limited herself to just this one one session of congress? She turned herself as she after three terms. She is turning herself out of what your ship is part of the deal. She made with molten and kind of anti Pelosi data fair enough. Yeah. I'm having a break here. We'll take that. We'll come back. We'll talk some more. We'll look at the Senate and some of the two thousand twenty aspects of it.

"He bought y'all a bike, Leland bitter. A Fox News joins us right now v ITT RT. That's where you find him on the Twitter box. Nudes do on Saturdays one to two on Sundays and Leland Nancy Pelosi. Closing in on becoming speaker. She's flexing the muscle and made, Marcia fudge the democrat from Ohio, basically beg for forgiveness. Honestly, people are trying to you know, you you you come at the king you best not miss some of these Democrats. Democrats before that have learned if you're gonna cheat the king you better kill him and Nancy Pelosi is the undisputed king right now the Democratic Party. And is we've seen people who've tried and everybody backed away for a long time the rumors about the he having trouble becoming speaker were you can't beat somebody with nobody and out. Marsha thanks for the put a toe in the water in got smackdown so hard now, she is, you know, saying never mind never mind. You know? I'm out and that is the that's the power of Nancy Pelosi in the control that the democratic leadership has in congress. You think about the two three top Democrats in congress? Now Hoyer Clyburn. Their combined age roughly the same age as the Republican self. And they have the political experience to prove it. Well, the bigger story. I think the bigger question that I have is not that. Hey Chevy noticed. How old the democratic leadership is they're supposed to be the young hip now party, and the the leadership are the kind of people who gave them directions. But the bigger question is. How happy are Democrats going to be giving President Trump and Republicans what they want which is Nancy Pelosi to run against for the next two years. Republicans. I talked to look at it two ways. One is they say she's a great foil for President Trump. And obviously he used that way in the twenty eighteen midterms, but she's also a known quantity, and she's a very political operator. And she's very shrewd dealmaker and a lot of Republicans are sort of wondering what she might have up her sweet. In the way that a more junior or less experienced caused celebs speaker would not, and there's a lot of discussion about you know, is she going to put certain bills through that are going to put the president and Republicans in uncomfortable positions, whether it'd be about healthcare or whether it be about immigration, whether it'd be back consumer protection. Remember, we go back to the rulebook, which is the constitution. All funding bills have to start in the house in the power of the purse is an incredibly powerful one that she now has talking to Leland bitter of Fox News..

So you actually have have a Turkey that lives with you or lived with you. Well, yes, I I had it up at a farm state. Pabo because Turkey in Spanish Pablo. Okay. If it was a talion, it'd be Keno. That's the Turkey. All right. Thanks good. Ten and a half years old. Wow. That's an old Turkey. Pretty pretty impressive member. Tassie the pig that we had up at New Hampshire during the primary three years ago. Tassie the pig was a big Bernie Sanders supporter. Well, okay. I remember that. Yes pig was it. It was somebody. That was Bernie supporters brought their pig down to the radio room, and we interviewed they didn't. I they let it end because they it been the curse of the Billy goat. And Bernie one New Hampshire. He did lucky to see that the pig was Trump Trump Trump blew everybody away New Hampshire. That's when you knew that he was going to be the nominee speaking, Mr. Trump. What does the president up tubes today? The president was actually playing golf with Jack nNcholas and his son in Florida. I actually far Lago where he left yesterday after a pardon to Turkey Turkey the other Turkey lives with the pardoned Turkey. Yeah. So that's going to be interesting to see. Well, you know, I look I never had a problem with Obama golfing. I don't have a problem with the president golfing. Sometimes the country runs better when the presidents don't get their hands in the middle of anything. But what's the other interesting stuff? We should be following in Washington. Step one INTERPOL, basically said that Kim Jong a yeah. They chose him to be their head of INTERPOL over the front runner from Russia because they felt that the front runner from Russia. Could do the Kremlin bidding? Also, Mike Espy had hip debate with Cindy Hyde. Smith who was appointed Senator from Mississippi. There's going to be a runoff on Tuesday, WalMart, AT and T Google and a few other groups that they want their money back after she made her finding comments she said about public hanging at when she was actually caught on camera saying that the president of former President Obama visit a Chicago bang, he volunteered. And then he bagged and he talked about racism and hate with plaguing the nation. Also, it's interesting that. Guess this department? Had math more Whitaker had one point two million dollars. He was given over a period of I think for years. He was called fact the foundation for counting and civil. Yeah. In interest. And basically he he what he did. This acting job is he was the only employee. That's pretty good. When you can get one point two million dollars and be the only employee. That's pretty interesting. It's like the haircut for men. I'm also my only client. Okay. And Marcia fudge. Great state of Ohio run from she's not running for Pelosi because he gave her an actual a position running a voter. Mandate question. And it's going to be a committee decided that she's going to run her committee and actually be the person that is going to go against Nancy Pelosi. What's the fate of complete than that Nancy Pelosi will be the speaker of the house? I think so. Yeah. Now, President Trump went after the ninth circuit ruling on asylum. However, there was also a Michigan moving, and it's very interesting. Never have. I seen this happen. In the years. I've been covering Washington. Chief Justice Roberts, a basically said, we don't have Clinton Georgia. We don't have four stretches. We have people who are who are devoted to the American judgeship. And that's very rare that a chief Justice would issue a statement like that. Yeah. That is pretty powerful stuff before we let you go. Ellen update us on what's going on with our relationship with Saudi Arabia. All we know is that the president says that if we don't sell them materials, then of course, they could buy them from China and Russia, which is probably true. However, that means as Jimmy Carter said does that mean, basically that we don't put our moral values there? That's the big question. Yeah. And the thing is I think to be the contrarian is that Trump is doing the same thing that other presidents have done. I mean, President Obama did not allow people to sue the Saudi government for nine eleven and we know weeks after nine eleven President, George W Bush was hand in hand with the Royal family, and we know that nineteen of the twenty three in those planes on nine eleven from Saudi Arabia. It's just a Trump does it with a different tone bright. Different times with a bunch of talk show hosts, and they took us to a party on the Red Sea. And guess what? There was more alcohol than I have ever seen the very American party. The other question is did anybody part the Red Sea? I'm glad you like my jokes Ellen. I don't think she actually dies courteous courteous last when you say ha ha that's kind of like a text. But I'm more of an L O L on texting not because no one really goes. Ha ha, you know, as we say Ellen. Thank you so much for joining us having great thanksgiving. We'll talk to you next week. We're got it. Alright. So Ratner of talk me. And you think you're funny. No one does apparently Mike kind of chuckled at myself. I thank you. I do I'm absurd. But you went L O L or a guy texting both both, Jerry. Why both of I think it's funnier. High is the medium funny. Okay. Nothing Latino due to three letters. That's really funny. I know it does because no one laughs out loud. A complete boob. If you did that. But ha doesn't sound that. I was thinking ha Clinton Dix. I'm a victim of just Ellawela also yellow, well, what time is it? Right. Well, because the problem is you can get caught in lost in text Latian. Sometimes that happens you texting back and forth with someone at some point. You gotta go. I'm just trying to be funny taking it seriously back.

Thanksgiving: Prepare for the busiest travel time of the year

"Was traveling today were you traveling Allen. No, actually, I tried to rent a car, and there was no way to rent a car, and they wanted to charge me five hundred dollars. So I cancelled it. Oh, good for you. So where are you spending thanksgiving week weekend? Well, I'm sending it up in New York state where my family and actually I've been New York City right now. Where there's a lot going on. What can I say? By the way. No, I've not begin. I do eat fish. But I had a pet Turkey named Pablo which is Turkey in Spanish, and he broke my nose when he tried to a way after I was talking and kissing. Only you Ellen. I love it that after he Africa back. I had my nose fix, obviously. And then he died a natural death. And then I had impact determined and he lives at the bottom of my stairs in lily, Dale, New York, which of course, dead people are too should come into your radio show from Idaho. I know I really wanna do it there because I've read stories about it, you know, about it. And I am we're going to make that happen. I want to come and do that. I wanna do that for the listeners would love. And of course, then you can meet Pablo. I I like it. We're gonna make it happen. I promise you that's going to be my twenty nineteen. So we're going to do that. So in Washington, the big story, but really reverberating outside of Washington is President Trump and the criticism of you know, the rare criticism of supreme court chief Justice John Roberts. And believe that Robert Kennedy. Well, what he basically said Robert Justice what Trump tweeted out back. In fact, there was a Obama judge and the ninth circuit that permit. Compare very very tough on migration cetera. So then John Roberts says we don't have. And he's the chief Justice was Republican was appointed by Republican. And he basically said, hey, we have Clinton charges. We don't have Bush judges. We don't have Obama judges. And we don't have Trump judges. We have just judges. And then President Trump tweeted out again. Yes, we do have judges that are one of those four. And I mean, this is just a war. You do not make war with the chief Justice seem state. Yeah. That was really surprising. I think we've seen the last of that. I mean, even you know Chuck Grassley tried to defend the president's saying, you know, why did Roberts rebuke Obama's remark. Why didn't he do that? He was trying to say he didn't do that before with Obama, and he made a comment, but I think that's much different. It is much different. And it's going to. I mean, this is to go down in the history books. Thanksgiving. But because nobody can believe that Roberts issued that statement. I mean, it was just unbelievable. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. I agree. And then how about this story? Then this other story that's getting a lot of attention is the president praising the Saudis for the low world oil prices. Oh my gosh. So as you know, he has just let the Saudis off the hook in terms thicker, show key Kelly. And. Basically, he said, listen, if we don't sell the Saudis things they're going to buy it from Russia and China that might be true. But as you remember, we have had former presidents like Carter who actually put human rights. I was roundly criticized for that. But President Trump is being criticized for not putting human rights at all in context. Yeah. Wow. I don't think we've heard the last of this whole Saudi thing either. This is just kind of a tipping point. There may be much more. That happens down the line only that and I'll tell you I was against of the Saudi Arabian government after nine eleven along with them up a talk show host, and they took us to a party on the Red Sea. I've never seen so much alcohol in my entire life. Drink it. Yeah. I've heard similar things. So that's not shocking to me. Let's put it that way. In the meantime, here's the big thing. Because there you are in in. New York City and so much conversation about the weather. What is the temperature like in the east coast is like what one degrading very very cold, very cold. Yeah. Not a great for parades. A not a and it's supposed to be very windy or the Macy's day parade. Very windy, and you know, we have seen balloons get blown about. But the wind is supposed to be staggering which would be just in a few hours. Wow. Crazy, and you and I talked about Nancy Pelosi. And now there's the story that Marcia fudge is not running to oppose Pelosi because that was. Title, Marcia fudge is a congresswoman from the great state of Ohio, which is where I'm from. And basically she met with Nancy Pelosi. She was going to run against her and then Pelosi has revived a committee on voting and she's putting Marcia fudge in charge. And Marcia fudge, Dan is not going to run against Nancy Pelosi. Now, Nancy Pelosi needs to hundred eighteen votes to be the speaker. She would just make it may be. But if she doesn't they're probably going to change it wolf. Wow. Crazy. Have a great thanksgiving holiday, and thanks so much Ellen. Thank you. All right, lily, Dale. It is in my future lily, Dale for those of you who don't know there's been documentaries on it on this this town, and it's an interesting place. It's the world's largest center for the religion of spiritualism. Basically, there's fifty mediums there.

Past the hour of six it's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin. A lot of folks are spending this week preparing for or maybe dreading a big family gathering for some families that will mean a little bit of drama and House Democrats. Well, they're doing the same thing sixteen Democrats have been waging an insurrection to oust leader Nancy Pelosi, one of them Tim Ryan of Ohio described it this way, we need to start having a family conversation about what direction we move in last night. Though, Nancy Pelosi seemed to knock out at least one of the competitors for her job NPR's. Kelsey Snell has been following all this family drama and joins us in the studio. Hey, Kelsey there. So Nancy, Pelosi's main competitor for the job of speaker, basically removed her name from consideration yesterday. Right. Yeah. Fudge came out, Marcia fudge, a who was rumored to be challenging anti Pelosi came out and said that she wasn't going to be doing that. Now, Marcia fudge is a congresswoman from Ohio and most people probably hadn't heard. Heard of her until last week when she kind of went from being an SNL parody as a person who's challenging Nancy Pelosi and kind of got elevated to this national stage. The Nancy Pelosi offered her a job tearing an reviving a committee of elections, basically, a subcommittee underneath of another committee to walk away and get in Pelosi's camp interesting. So it was enough of a leadership position that Marcia fudge decided it wasn't worth it to challenge. Nancy, plus, well, Marcia fudge said that it was a really important job. And that elections really needed to be paid attention to you. But this is part of what Nancy Pelosi does. And then she did it again later on in the evening. She creates new positions to empower new people. She did this last time that her job was up for a challenge. And at the time, she create, you know, creates these new jobs people who were already in leadership kind of complained that it makes it a little bit of a less exclusive place to be in House Democratic leadership. But the people who get let in get to feel a little bit more important. So does this mean that Nancy Pelosi is safe at this point? Or are there other? Names being bandied about well, there are no other names being bandied about. But there are still the people the sixteen people on the letter. Remember, Marcia fudge didn't actually sign onto this big insurrection letter. Her name was just floated as somebody who could maybe replace Pelosi another potential person that that doesn't mean the Pelosi safe, but she's getting safer, and it really indicates the way that she's going to go about making herself. More insulated from threats to offer. People more power. I want to play some tape from congressman Seth Moulton who was really out in front of this whole anti Pelosi campaign. Let's listen to this Americans.

Fudge came out, Marcia fudge, who was rumored to be challenging anti Pelosi came out and said that she wasn't going to be doing that.

Nancy Pelosi offered her a job tearing an reviving a committee of on elections as basically a subcommittee underneath of another committee to walk away and get in Pelosi's camp interesting. So it was enough of a of a leadership position that Marcia fudge decided it wasn't worth it to challenge Nancy Pelosi. Well, Marcia fudge said that it was a really important job. And that elections really needed to be paid attention to you. But this is part of what Nancy Pelosi does. And then she did it again later on in the evening. She creates new positions to empower new people. She did this last time that her job was up for a challenge. And at the time, she create, you know, creates these new jobs people who were already in leadership kind of complained that it makes it a little bit of a less exclusive place to be in House Democratic leadership. But the people who get let in get to feel a little bit more important. So does this mean Nancy Pelosi is safe at this point? Or are there? Other names being bandied about well, there are no other names being bandied about. But there are still the people though, sixteen people on the letter remember, Marcia fudge didn't actually sign onto this big insurrection letter. Her name was just floated as somebody who could maybe replace Pelosi another potential person that that doesn't mean the Pelosi safe, but she's getting safer, and it really indicates the way that she's going to go about making herself.

She required reconstructive surgery. That woman was found fatally stabbed over the weekend. And the man who fudged defended has been arrested and is

"Independent in thoughts and punk rock in life. It's the Chad Benson show. In for Chad Benson, happy thanksgiving to you. All why fear? I will be up all night cooking was up all night last night cooking. I made a pound cake, and it should have been baked at three hundred degrees. And I baked it at three fifty that came out tough, so tough. It was like a break I had to throw it away. So he's up until one o'clock eastern time this morning making a double yellow cake with chocolate fudge icing for the kids today. I've got a brisket on made brisket barbecue sauce. I gotta do chicken and dumplings this evening to get Turkey. Oh, the freezer start thawing. It out it's going to be busy. But right now, the news is busy. Let's get to it. Marcia fudge, a congresswoman from Ohio wants to challenge Nancy Pelosi. Now, here's the problem for Pelosi. It progressives don't there's not a huge love lost between Nancy Pelosi. A lot of the progressives. Even though Nancy Pelosi considers herself look. Liberal the liberal suggests don't care for her. They want a fresh face the Democrats in congress have a problem. It is this. They are old. The ranking members are prehistoric in fact in this past congress every single chairman of every single committee run by Republicans had a chairman who is younger than their democrat counterpart some by twenty years. I mean, the Democrats are ancient Nancy Pelosi is old. There's nothing wrong with that. It's just you. You've got this injection of fresh blood Democrats eager to score points to score points against the Republicans in their their old. So the progressives don't much care for her. The moderates that Pelosi is bad for business. There are sixteen. Moderate Democrats who have signed a letter saying they will oppose Nancy Pelosi for the speakership. Now, this is important because the Democrats have a sixteen seat majority right now, they may get they may get eighteen seats actually of. Those sixteen people one of them will actually want the blues ING, so it was a fifteen person. There's a real problem here for Nancy Pelosi, if the Republicans were to swing their votes towards a more moderate democrat, they could potentially disrupt. Or if the Republicans decided just for the heck of it to go with a far left progressive. They could totally undermine Nancy Pelosi. They could put a they could cause all sorts of squabbling on the democratic side. Well, Marcia fudge has come out the congresswoman from Ohio as someone who wants to get elected wants to be speaker of the house of representatives. She's been put up by moderate Democrats. Progressives hate her because she's very pro union, and though she is relatively liberal, Marcia fudge has a history of opposing gay marriage and transgender rights. She is a moderate black democrat from Ohio area and type of democrat Democrats need to win in twenty twenty and the progressive. Gives don't want her. Well, they're not going to have to worry about Marcia fudge. Now Nancy Pelosi is not going to have to worry about Marcia fudge. Now, I actually broke the stores in you know, I found the letter it was sent to me by a source at Ohio. I put it up and then a local news station grabbed the letter and ran with it. But nonetheless, I don't need credit for it. It's just it's an interesting story. There's a judge in Ohio cuyahoga county, Ohio, Lance Mason in two thousand fourteen lands. Mason was charged with a spousal abuse and assault. He really savagely beat his wife in front of his kids. He punched his wife twenty times the end of two thousand fourteen during his prison. Sentencing in August of two thousand fifteen after his trial, Marcia fudge wrote a letter to the hoagie county prosecutor's office. Tim McGinty the prosecutor let me read you the letter. This letter of support. On behalf of lands, t Mason comes result of more than twenty years of friendship. Most assuredly. I am deeply said disappointed at where we find ourselves today. The behavior Lance displayed on August, second two thousand fourteen is out of character, totally country to everything I know about him. I commend Lance remedial recognizing that needed help and entering counseling which continues as part as of this writing further, he's working diligently to find a way to face what he has done to his family and his reputation Lance accepts full responsibility for his actions, and has assured me that something like this will never happen. Again. The Lance t Mason, I know is a kind intelligent, man, and loyal friend. The Lance t Mason, I know is an advocate for the people of his community. Whether as a county prosecutor state Senator or Common, Pleas Judge, Lance t Mason is well respected, and well, light, Lance Mason is a good man who made a very bad mistake. I can only hope that you see and Lance would I and other see I think for your consideration of this matter. Sincerely, Marcia, l fudge was not signed as a congresswoman she signed it in an individual capacity, but it was four Lance Mason. Who savagely beat his wife? In fact, according to the New York Times, Lance Mason went on to serve nine months in prison for brutally beating his wife in two thousand fourteen in front of their children punching her twenty times and fracturing a bone in her face, Marcia fudge, defended that guy. This is the same Lance Mason who this weekend. Held down his estranged wife and put a bullet through her head in front of his children. Yes. It back. It wasn't a shooting. It was a stabbing. He stabbed her to death wrong case. That's right. He was driving a sport utility vehicle away from his sister's house slammed into an officers patrol car. After stabbing his wife in front of their children. I don't think Marcia fudge will be speaker of the house of representatives. Now, the progressives did wanted her want her to begin with. I think this pretty much scuttles her campaign against the Democrats. The Democrats though, man, they are they are going to squabble amongst themselves. Listen, this is from MSNBC all the Pelosi fight. Well. We're we're heading into a messy early January because it would appear from that letter that this group has enough enough members to prevent Nancy Pelosi who will get the majority of the caucus vote to be the speaker from actually becoming the speaker on the floor, and as I've urged some people that I know in that group to think about then what? And look there's a whole conversation to be had about whether the democratic leadership, you know, is changing fast enough. You know, they're obviously younger members who are interested in positions that are not those top three positions. That's a very fair conversation to have. But I've been encouraging people I know on that letter to ask themselves. You know what? Then what's the plan? No one has emerged to challenge Nancy Pelosi, which would be the right way to actually set up a leadership race. And do they imagine that if they prevent her as maybe they can from becoming speaker, whoever is behind Nancy Pelosi in that instance, comes into a unified caucus. So anyway, I we'll see how this all plays out. There's a lot of time between now and the New Year's when we're we're taking this this vote. But it does seem to me that this is I I guess the right analogy is this is a pretty ugly game of chicken that is being set up in a way that could damage something that I think needs to be really. Really supported which is democratic unity democratic unity all about the democratic unity. Now, those are the sixteen people really fifteen who don't want Pelosi from the moderate wing of the party. There are some progressives. Who were saying it is misogynistic sexist bigoted for the moderates do not support Pelosi. But there are other progressive saying, hey, we need a we need a new face year. She's not as progressive as we need to be Pelosi herself is ruffling feathers by saying she opposes the progressive idea of abolishing ice, and she has come out. Now, a posing impeaching Donald Trump that is roughly the feathers of major democratic donors going to be a fight behind the scenes. I don't think it's actually going to be public. I think it's going to be behind the scenes. Meanwhile, the Democrats are still out suggesting that the election was fraudulent, particularly George. I have mentioned this. But you know, a Stacey Abrams the democratic governor. She is still out. Now say that the election was illegitimate and stolen the New York Times yesterday the Washington Post yesterday CNN yesterday, they all did stories about how Republicans are undermining people's faith in democracy by calling into question the election. That's that's the New York Times, the Washington Post CNN saying these things and yet it's not the Republicans calling the election into question. Here's a panel on MSNBC. Now, listen, if you're driving in your car right now. Keep your hands on the wheel because you may be tempted to throw your hands up on either side of your head to keep your brain from exploding. When you hear these people, but just keep keep keep your car steady your head may explode. But you just listen to this nonsense accounts. They never go Republicans way too. Now, go. Shameful that? He would do it gets shameful. That Marco Rubio on who has apparently become, you know, the the next cheerleader in the category of Mike Pence never does anything that he has any problems with it is shameful. The national Republican Senate committee is also doing the same thing in Arizona where it is clear that the democrat is pulling away are still trying to defame the local official who is a ex marine of some kind of nefarious activity. This is shameful. All of this guys is defeat the integrity damage, the integrity of elections. This is what they used to call useful idiots in the Soviet era is usually on MSNBC now. Now, I play that clip from you from the other day where the doers are. How dare the Republicans? Call into doubt any of this. How Rebublican suggests this was a legitimate election. Here's Sam Stein today on MSNBC, very tricky conversation because on the one hand op. Obviously, you want to make sure there's trust in the system and the outcomes, and you want to be able to accept the final tally on the other hand, you can't just ignore everything that precluded that. So when you have one point five million people purged from the roles if you have fifty three p fifty three thousand people held up on the registration. If you have four and a half hour lines to just vote if you have the secretary of state overseeing on election. Those all also add to a sense of distrust in the process, you can't just say, okay, we have this incredibly difficult process. It seems potentially problematic. The secretary of state. But when it's all done we have to accept it. No, you have to actually build the trust up in order for you to have the trust. I think ultimately the answer is people just have to make it easier to vote you have to provide the machinery the locations you have to make it easier for people to get to the polls. You have to make it easier for people register once you do that you can restore trust because they know democracies more full right democracies. More full here. Stacey abrams. It was not a free and fair election. We had thousands of Georgians who were purged from the roles wrongly including a ninety two year old woman who had voted in the same area since nineteen sixty eight a civil rights leader. It was not fair to the thousands who were forced to wait in long lines because they were polling places that were under resourced or worse. They had no polling places to go to because more than three hundred have been closed. It was not fair to the thousands that were put on hold with their registrations. And it was not fair to those who filled that absentee ballots, and depending on the count. Senate to it either was count or not count Sumi you received it in time. Oh, good grief, all local elections issues, by the way, the secretary of state had nothing to do with it individual counties is as if they think that every election was perfect until the Republican. We're in charge. No, that's not how it worked, and it was all local elections officials. But facts don't matter to the Democrats now that the election is over, and they get to say the election was stolen. Just like they were upset with Donald Trump for suggesting the election might not be carried out legitimately in two thousand sixteen. And then after he won Democrats have invested all their energy in claiming he's an illegitimate president hypocrisy knows no bounds. Eric Erickson for Chad Benson. We'll be back. Now. Now, the three big things you need to know three three. Donald Trump says he is confident in Wall Street despite continued losses this week today. The Dow lost another five hundred fifty points. Trump told reporters outside the White House that he is not further punishing Saudi Arabia over the death of a journalist saying it's about America. I to me. Centers for disease control says don't eat any Romain lettuce, especially on thanksgiving. Dangerous. E coli is making people very sick on Sunday the twenty fifth.

And then also Ben mcadams the democrat running against me love in Utah has also signed, but he has not been officially announce the winner of that race. So that would be eighteen. So the Democrats would have to get up to thirty six if you take those eighteen away that are signing this letter that would give Nancy Pelosi two hundred and eighteen of these eighteen three are women and fifteen or men you'd have to see what the break-up with the breakdown of male to female is in the house to see what percentage works that way. So this is going to be obviously interesting to see what happens with this. And I think what Rachel maddow's said the other night on MSNBC was was dead on. Here's Chuck Schumer. The Senate minority leader who actually is going to lose seats. I now he's back to being the Senate minority leader is Nancy Pelosi who was the minority leader in the house. She won the election. She got the Democrats to take control of the house. And now they don't want to put her in charge of the house of representatives speaker of the house. This would be like the Red Sox firing Alex Cora to the World Series. And meanwhile, the dodgers giving an extension to Dave Roberts who who lost the series. It just it doesn't make any sense. I mean, she wants she did her job got the house back for the Democrats. And then they're saying, thanks. We're going to move on from you. You know, it's interesting though, sap I can actually understand why it's happened. Because. May I guess because suddenly the stakes are higher got sort of the reasoning? I think you would see why this is being battled over and Schumer doesn't matter. Basically. There's you know what I mean? I think that the argument is that is that there's not enough people who care for Chuck Schumer's dock job because you're sort of. I mean, listen, hey, you're still the the minority leader. But really, you know, there's nothing not do much fight for. Whereas, of course, there is far more power when you are actual speaker of the house, and that's why suddenly all of these opponents are being brought up to the surface. But yes, if you're looking for results, and probably you should be rather than just be hungry for power, which is probably what most people are. You would go with the analysis that meadow provided makes it look ridiculous that you would go for anybody else. Yeah. Plus, I mean, she has the experience she has the ability to negotiate she did work her off back in two thousand nine two thousand ten to get the ACA passed in the house that was not easy to do. And I think this is what happens when when a party takes control in the house. Sometimes you have these fractures right because in two thousand ten the Republicans took control, but you had the tea party that was kind of the energy of the party, and they wanted to kind of separate themselves from the old school Republicans while I think this has happened again on the democratic side, you have more of the progressives that want to take control of the Democratic Party Nancy Pelosi is really not a progressive. She kind of fits more of the old school democrat. She does have obviously left leanings, but maybe not so much as some of the the new elected officials that are going gonna be going into Washington in January. So it's going to be interesting to see. And I think what Representative Schakowsky said is also spot on put someone up against her. I mean, just don't write this letter and sign this letter eighteen potential or seventeen plus one who may still get in members of the house saying, well, we just don't want her. But we're going to have a solution. If you don't want her who's it gonna be, you know, put, Marcia fudge up or put Tim Ryan up or put Seth Moulton opera, whoever it may be. And then you have that that contest because there's this lingers on it makes the Democratic Party look foolish. Let's jump to this. This is basically breaking news about the judge citing with CNN and the across the case..

"If in fact, let it on. Billy house of Bloomberg. The Bloomberg news congressional reporter. He is on the phone from Capitol Hill and Billy. We know that kind of like Theresa May in Great Britain. The the situation for Pelosi is a fast changing story. What's the latest? Well, it is. I mean, she said she believes she does have the votes to be elected on the house floor in January speaker again, go there's wide disputed inside her own democratic caucus, whether that's true and letters are being circulated. There's at least seventeen names on at least one letter that would oppose her until it becomes a numbers game, comedy members will Democrats have and how many are those Democrats will support her on the floor, and can she get two hundred and eighteen votes of the total for hundred thirty five seats. So is this a battle beyond just the the speakership? But. A philosophical battle for control of the Democratic Party. Philosophical. Yes degree, but even more so generational. The party's face is not only far more diverse, but it's also diverse in age and much younger than that. Of course, close by average age of seventy eight it's also a battle over her tight reign over the caucus over the years. Many members beyond those who've been around three four five terms believe she holds too much of a tight rein on committee assignments. The direction policies, and that sort of thing they were more bottom up approach, and she has not been that type of leader. They believe. So what other democrat can challenge? Sure will challenger. But this is turning into maybe a two step process. I you kill the Queen. And then you find somebody to replace the Queen because as of yet only a very few people are even being mentioned as potential successors. And Marcia fudge is the only ones that's really come out and said, she's considering it more privately there are a number of people who have said that. Well, she's toppled if she cannot get clear, she cannot get those turnouts for that they might consider it those range from Hakeem Jeffries from New York who's got a lot of favor among younger members. Because he spent time this last year traveling around campaigning for them there. Others who may not be such a generational change. But are respected like Adam shifts, the chairman of the house intelligence committee, one problem for him is that closely kind of endorsed him in a Los Angeles Times interview, someone she is grooming. So that could be. Good or bad in this climate. And then they're even older ones. Like Elijah Cummings. The head of the top democrat on the oversight committee, perhaps best known for standing toe to toe with Republicans on the Benghazi investigation. And now the Russia that Russia investigation stuff. So there's there's those surnames floating around, but no really apparent era parent, the reticence to sorta step into the spotlight, if you if you tangle with someone who does become house speaker. That affects your committee assignments, I would assume and everything else. Back in the case of Adam Schiff, who is now the top ranking member on house intelligence, and that's been his platform for TV and all kinds of more visible approaches. He he need to waiver to stay on that committee, something he wants very much. Announce he was couching glossy and lose. Of course, he down undoubtedly would not get that waiver. And as party veterans have seen in this last election cycle you oppose the progressives. And the and the young Turks at your own peril and are less. Absolutely. We have our current the current House Democratic caucus chairman. Joe Crowley, there's, you know, serving his final weeks now in congress was defeated in his own primary, and and they're in queens, Brooklyn. So he is very aware that her aides say that this is a climate that she's going to have to work really hard and while outwardly expressing confidence. They say she scrambling. Thank you, Billy. That's Bloomberg news congressional reporter Billy house. You're listening to Bloomberg politics policy and power.

If that was your question your question, the overwhelming support in my caucus to be speaker of the house, and certainly we have many many people in our caucus who could serve in this capacity. I happen to think that at this point. I'm the best person for that Ohio congresswoman, Marcia fudge is one of several Democrats challenging democratic leadership as she told CNN Thursday. She still considering a run at it. Obviously, very interested to know what you have made a decision about whether. Making a run for speaker. That made a decision. What are you saying right now in this decision making process? It's a big decision. I mean, the speaker does an awful lot of things. A lot of the things. Awful. Make sure that I'm making the right decision. I want ask you to name names. But we know that about seventeen people have signed on to a letter saying that they would support alternative leadership within the dumb caucus.

"Congressman Seth Moulton and molten who's a decorated war veteran and a Harvard MBA in a young man on the rise. He raised his not his own hand. Oh, no. He knows to demonstrate good ally. Ship. I am personally very close with Marcia fudge of Ohio. He's my mentor when I came to congress. I looked around I asked dozens of people who could I use as a mentor who is someone who is widely respected who is wise who is intelligent, and who can give me advice and person after person said, Marcia fudge, she is the kind of new leader that we need in this party. She's incredible. She's amazing. She's from Ohio. She's wow. What a resume from Ohio. You say how many people outside the Dayton Cincinnati? Oakland or Columbus metro areas can say that but CNN wasn't simply satisfied to take that stellar resume at face value. But are you saying that people don't respect neces- Flosi? What's your beef? With Nancy Pelosi isn't just about DNC Pelosi. I I understand in her thirty years in congress. She is accomplished a lot for the Democratic Party. And no one's taking that away from her. Oh, it's not a beef with Pelosi. It's just a taste for fudge dudes got no grudge just loves him, some fudge. All right. This maybe not exciting enough to you. I'll gin it up with some fun headlines rep molten his Bolton don't get you. Cozy with Pelosi delivers the fudge nudge, Marcia fudge, former leader of the Congressional Black caucus sixty six years old five term member of congress. I can't really get that excited about either side of this showdown. I don't begrudge fudge. But I think the in-fighting will thrill Matt drudge because when a minority of the majority opposes the. Majority that usually causes problems look at the freedom caucus it weakens. Whoever the speaker is or becomes Nancy Pelosi so bad don't ask a Republican asking democrat ask maybe a democrat who just won the election. There is one factor that recommends, Marcia fudge, and it is that whoever the democratic speaker of the house will be that person will be demonized they'll be demonized in fundraising appeals on the Fox News.
