Nancy Pelosi's on Her Last Legs
"Let's begin with nancy. Pelosi making what i think is a grave error. I think she always hear about. Donald trump destroyed the norms. Okay nancy pelosi as speaker is wiping out the all the customs traditions of the house of representatives and she must pay what she did is on this baloney january six commission. And i gotta tell you about january six guys. i keep hearing how. It's a giant riot and insurrection. Look i was in the los angeles riots. Fueled by maxine waters not democrat. I was on the streets for three weeks with third battalion. Hundred and sixtieth infantry. That's a riot what happened on capitol hill was a frat party. Okay no comparison all right and the only person killed on. Capitol hill was an unarmed trespasser veteran. Shot by a cop whose name we don't know. Dozens were murdered in los angeles. So you know. Save your drama for your mama. 'cause i'm not entertaining. It and nancy pelosi wants to have this kangaroo court commission so she appoints liz. Cheney nominal republican and now she's going to appoint adam kin zinger the r-enfield of the gop caucus but she's not allowing kevin mccarthy to put jim banks big friend a show and jim jordan on the committee. She doesn't approve. She is picking who the republicans can put on committees. This cannot stand. This is not happened before. Now they strip marjorie taylor green her seats and that was a bad precedent. But it's special. This was a merger we we had to do it. If kevin mccarthy doesn't retaliate. They've set a new standard.

"Is better than peaceful protest. Is a Virginia cop who was fired after storming the U. S. Capitol. You remember a federal judge was considering what should happen with him. Now he has been jailed. He ordered a large stockpile of guns and ammo after his arrest. Posted online and support of future political violence. Thomas Robertson is his name. He's retired Army reservist. Later, the Rocky Mountain Police Department. He was one of the first rioters charged by the Justice Department released in January. But as we reported here He was re arrested. Because investigators said they found a rifle and bomb making material in his home. He also bought another 37 guns on the Internet after his arrest. So There was the judge who I thought oddly said, Well, I'm just gonna have to think about this Something really You have to think about it, but he did think about it, and now he's been jailed. Ah! There is probable cause to believe that Robertson committed a felony, willfully shipping or transporting firearms and ammunition despite being under felony indictment. This is the judge's ruling. No way to protect the public without keeping Robertson in jail is what the judge ruled. Robertson. Procurement of these dangerous weapons under the surrounding circumstances heightens the risk to public safety, said the judge. The, uh The case highlights they say why prosecutors, federal judges and national security officials have warned of continued political violence from disillusioned supporters of former President Donald Trump. Essentially, they're saying in this case, you can see that not only this guy. Yeah. Not only did he not adhere to the terms of his parole or his actions, a parole, his his release, you know, you only paroled after after being convicted. You know his release on his own recognizance. But he actually double down. I mean, he redoubled his efforts to get more weapons and more explosive devices. And for that reason they're saying, Hey, look. This crew that was part of that initial political violence. They actually Continue their effort. Two. Propagate more political violence. So that is that. Uh, There is something odd that this is, you know, A lot of this stuff is grandstanding. I think that they do the Marjorie Taylor, Greens of the World and Matt Gates is of the world. But as you know they are They're big on viral videos and What they did, and I'll play the audio in just one second. As they called The Department of Corrections. To check on the conditions that the January six rioters, some of them anyway. Are being housed in To make sure that those conditions are meeting the general standard. So your Understand that this is a video being shot. I'm going to play the audio part and they're hunched over there. Just sitting there. There's nothing really to see its gates and Marjorie Taylor green. They're hunched over. And they're speaking into a phone and you'll hear a little bit of them, claiming That they're checking on conditions in the prison system to make sure that those were arrested on January 6th are receiving proper treatment. Hi, I'm calling for Mr Quincy Booth. This is Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor, Grain and congressman. Nine Gates as well. We're calling because we're concerned about the conditions there at the prison, and we stopped by yesterday to to tour the facility likely to our many facilities as being.

"I mean one thing that's striking when you hit that. Of course we we expect in a way now. The universe the republican universe to support somebody like modules green. Perhaps we have become used to that but in some ways. It's slightly more shocking. The reaction on the democratic side. Brad schneider of illinois congressman is introduced a censure resolution against taylor green that's just sort of big congressional condemnation but quite noticeable the top party officials in the democratic party. Nancy pelosi as speaker of the house have stopped short of calling for taylor green to be expelled for example from congress and preferring instead to say that she should just keep your mouth shut. I mean we get the fear on the republican side only explains why democrats would hesitate at throwing the and throwing it really hard to act mt g right so i think that there is some hesitation among among democrats to throw more attention on marjorie taylor green. Of course they've condemned her most recent comments about the holocaust. But i think that there is some fear that if they try to punish her again as they did in february when they removed from her committees that they may end up actually kind of fueling her rise giving her even more attention in the form of for example. A censure vote yes we know that you create to kind of republican martyr potentially and she's already so massive in the kind of fox news and one america news network world. You don't wanna make even bigger so you know you get that lead stirred interesting contrast that isn't it because it means that even democrats who were very very quick to deal a leadership level to deal with accusations for example of anti semitism when they appeared on their own side and speak of blazey did ask for example congresswoman ilhan omar to apologize when she made comments. I think suggesting that you know support. For the pro is our organization apec was in all about the benjamins all about money and that seemed to a lot of people have an unfortunate echo and their historically and that's he plays he was right on that and yet not going in for the jugular when it comes to somebody on the other side of the political aisle right yes and i think that a republicans have certainly jones on that on that dynamic as well. I think that one of the reasons why actually House minority leader kevin mccarthy condemned greenslade comments about the holocaust is because republicans have been trying more recently to paints a democrats as antisemitic because many progressives our voice criticism of israel during the recent By attacks between israeli forces and hamas in gaza and so it is definitely a dynamic that republicans are eager to jump on. And they're hoping to use that to their benefit as they look to the twenty twenty. Two midterms is that they are trying to paint democrats as antisemitic. And so that's why marjorie taylor. Greens i think did spark some form of statement at least from mccarthy condemning her that comparison because it didn't exactly help their efforts a level. Those kind of allegations against let.

"I really felt. You know what a tragic day for the United States that this frenzied mob, um could have reached the capital? Something that didn't even happen in the civil war and try and essentially overthrow the government. I mean, we were in the In the middle of a constitutional processed. That is key to implementing the votes of the American people in this in the selection of their next president, and they tried to prevent that from happening. It's sedition. Um, so that was it was a very, uh Very troubling day for the United States. Also on the House Day as that day was Illinois Republican Rodney Davis, the House Administration committee's ranking member. He recounts his experience at the front of the House chamber on January 6th. Was one of the four tellers that was tasked with reading the electoral college results from each state. Stan sitting in front of the vice president and also the speaker of the House. And this has been a pretty perfunctory operation when I've been witnessing it before. As a member of Congress, we knew this one was going to be a little more. Uh, you know, a little more popular to watch, but at the same time, I didn't think we would see what we saw that day. And you are one of the tellers. And at what point do you realize something's going on outside of the chamber doors? Well earlier in the day, I just anticipated being on the floor for a very long time. And I remember being over and Rayburn and I was grabbing a quick bite to eat at the subway shop. That's that's in the basement. And I'm like, you know, I'd better just go ahead and get two sandwiches like maybe we'll come back here during a debate and eat the eat the other one for dinner later and Got those two sandwiches, and I remember, uh, I remember thinking to myself that this will be somewhat normal and just be a long day and we'll get through it. And listen to debate how the votes and what have you But I started noticing something wasn't right when we begin debating Arizona, And while that debate was going on, I went down to the sergeant at arms office, and I saw on the many video screens that they had of the outdoor cameras. I saw different Parts of the perimeter being breached. I saw our Capitol police officers in the capital, uh, basically panicking, not panicking, but being a very high alert, somewhat panic mode, And that is when I I ran back to my office. And like I'm gonna eat at least one of these sandwiches real quick while I'm waiting to get some answers, and my team called me because they were on the floor of my House Administration team, and that was Gen. Dobby Mom stay after Rector Tim Monahan, my deputy staff director. Nick Crocker, my director of member services, and Caleb Hayes, who was my general counsel. Uh, Jen called me and said, I think you better get back here. They're talking about closing the Florida And I hurried up and ate my sandwiches. I was walking out my office door and I was walking onto the floor as leadership was being evacuated and I saw Steve Scalise and his team going out as I was going in. Did you have a conversation with them? It was, uh, let's just say my comment. Um, can now be summed up be attacks as WTF. And do you did they say anybody from leadership tell you what was going on as they were being exited out, or did they have any comment? No. We all knew what was going on. I had already seen the outer perimeter being breached on those video screens in the sergeant at arms office, So I was going onto the floor while they were leaving. And just minutes later. That's when all the doors will shut. Uh We were seeing footage of the Senate being breached, so everybody was on pretty high alert, and I was talking to new members, helping them to open up the hoods that I'd never touched before. In my eight years as a member of Congress, our we're figuring out how to open them and how to possibly put them on which I never had to do. But at the same time, there were a lot of freshman there that I've gotten to know during orientation that this was their first real experience as a member of Congress, and we were kind of watching them and and talking to my my fellow colleagues about what we could do to try and stop this. What were what were those conversations like? Tell us about them. Well, I remember a conversation I had with Marjorie Taylor. Greek. Marjorie was a freshman. She was very active during the orientation and She was very upset about what was going on and her and I chatted, she said. What can I do? I said, How about you go back in the cloakroom film a video posted on social media, and if you have any influence over anybody out there, tell him to stop. She did that. Um, those are the types. That's just one example of the types of conversations we had during that short time before. We were evacuated off the floor. So you're waiting. You're watching. And what do the Capitol police or who evacuate you? Off the floor? What was that? Like? Well, the, uh Most superior Capitol police officer after all of the internal doors were locked in the wooden doors that I've really not seen on the inside because usually they're open. When we're coming through them. They were all locked and those doors began to be pounded on by the folks who broke into the capital. They were offering instructions to remain calm and stay in the chamber. The chamber is safe. And then next thing you know, they said, Everybody move to this side this exit and when we were going about exiting in an orderly fashion on what I would say is the Republican side of the speaker's lobby. We could hear the pounding going on on the speaker's lobby doors. Mhm..

Vaccine Skepticism Runs Deep Among White Evangelicals in US
"Health officials are hoping a national vaccine campaign can stop the spread of covert 19. But some groups are hesitant to get on board, among them white evangelicals. Surveys show there among the people least likely to say they will get the vaccine. NPR's Sarah McCammon reports on how pastors and public health leaders are working to change that among one of the nation's largest religious groups. In a certain segment of Christian escapology, which is just a big word for what you think will happen at the end of the world. There's this idea of the mark of the beast. For the uninitiated, it's bad, and if you want to go to heaven, you'd better not get it. And I asked the question earlier today. Is this something like Biden's mark of the beast? Because that is really disturbing. And not good. That's Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene in a recent video posted online green is suggesting, and I have to say here without evidence a connection between that idea and vaccines. Jared Cornett is a pastor in Irving, Texas. And he's heard this too in some of his Southern Baptist Facebook groups, But to me, I have a very hard time from getting the bat scene. The mark of the beast, Cornett says. Thankfully, he hasn't heard that in his church, but he has run across some skepticism and misunderstandings about the science behind the Corona virus vaccine. Nationally. White evangelicals report a high degree of vaccine hesitancy. In one recent survey just over half said they were likely to get vaccinated compared to 64% of evangelicals of color. Both groups were well below the rate for non evangelicals 77%, and I think it's just this information as well. Cornett says. Some church members who oppose abortion also have moral concerns about how some of the vaccines were developed, including research involving fetal cells from abortions performed decades ago.

Donald Trump impeachment trial: what you need to know
"Donald trump may have left the white house but he has not ceased contributing to the history of the american presidency. Beginning later today he will become the first occupant of that office to undergo a impeachment trial for the second time the charges on this occasion relate to his role in inciting january sixth royat which led to the ransacking of the capitol building in washington d c. Five people died one of them a police officer murdered by the mob as we learned the first time. A two-thirds majority of senators is required for conviction. But are the numbers. There were joined with more by. Suzanne lynch washington dc correspondent for the irish times suzanne first of all to washington itself. Are there concerns about further disturbances as the trial gets underway. Well i am. It is important to note andrew. There's still a lot of security here in washington. Dc a lot of armed patrols are still here a lot of fencing and a lot of security around the capitol building in saying this and there's been no specific suggests that there would be any kind of violence today at the fbi is still. There are posters all over the city looking for information about people who evolved in the original capitol hill riots. Many of them at this stage have been arrested. So there is a feeling dash at the security services have made a lot of progress on arresting the people who are involved without nearly four weeks go more than four weeks ago in fact so yeah there it. It's still a city. That's quite tense. But no specific indication that there is anything plan for today. What if anything is donald trump proposing to offer by way of defending himself. Is he actually taking an active interest in his impeachment. Trial this time mersey. He just staying on the gulf coast. Well we had. We saw that he fell out in some way was originally legal team that he had engaged to represent him at this trial and then very quickly appointed two new Figures at david shown ambers koster early last week so That in itself has been quite and quite unusual so we're going to hear from those two lawyers at today when the impeachment trial starts now. The highs impeachment managers who are effectively. The democrats were acting prosecutors at they wrote donald trump last week asking him to testify under oath either before the impeachment trial. It's up or during the impeachment trial. He said no in no uncertain terms dot through his lawyer. So that's not happening as we don't expect to hear from donald trump. They have been quite clear. Though about the argument they expect to make. They filed a seventy eight page brief yesterday. And there are a couple of lines of defensively like we're expecting them to use as significantly in the most The most important will be the argument that this whole process is flawed. That it's unconstitutional to try a president who has already left office in an impeachment trial now. A lot of legal experts have questions about that. Don't agree with that argument but that is definitely one of the arguments are going to make. Also that his comments in his speech is incendiary speech that was delivered on the mall just before the capitol hill attack. That thought is protected by the first amendment rights pre speech. Which of course is so important and so strongly to here in the united states and there are other arguments are making that this political theater by the democrats that donald trump was speaking figuratively talking about the need to fight during that speech. So but i think we're going to see predict on the first day is debated about this constitutionality. Argument is this. Is this legal to hold a present. Try it of course in the past. Is this the first time this has happened as you pointed out that our president has been impeached for the second time and be after. He's facing trial after he has had office but we have examples read history. Were other officials like judges. Were tried and impeachment. After they left office so democrats argue that no this it may not have happened before with the president but that it is perfectly legal as we've discussed before it does seem unlikely that they will be sufficient republican votes to secure that two-thirds majority in the senate. What do we understand of the calculation that republican senators who vote to acquit. donald will be making. Will they be acting out of foam principal and a conviction that he is an innocent man or are they still really really scared of his base in the trouble that he might be able to cause them especially in primaries. I manage this is quite so. What's so interesting about this impeachment. It's taking pay so early. In the psych of joe biden. It's almost as if republicans. Now they will they will have to go publicly on the record on donald trump. At a time where i tink. There's still a lot of soul searching by the direction of the party. So we saw last week. There was controversy over Marjorie taylor green very much trump acolyte in the house and under the controversy over lists charging the third ranking republican in the house who you know broke with their party and voted to impeach donald trump. But she survived. He got quite a decisive vote in her favor. A private meeting last week so that would suggest that republicans privately are not so enamored with donald trump. Bussey may seem publicly. I think what's going to happen though. And this provides an for republicans. If you like is that they may well hide behind this argument about process at that. The whole the constitutionality of the entire impeachment trial rather than cast judgment on the substance of the allegation against donald trump himself i think that would allow allow republicans at to vote to quit donald trump without condoning or supporting his behavior on john six. So i think that's where this story is. Probably going i think most republicans will vote to a question but based on that argument that the process itself is flawed. Not on the fact that he is innocent of the charges of lucia accused.
"marjorie taylor" Discussed on The Daily
"Party accountable. It's really a decision on the part of the republican leadership and remember on thursday. Liz cheney has been reaffirmed a member of the republican leadership at. They're going to try to hold this rickety coalition together and that they're going to try to include both the most traditional elements in the republican party. And the most extreme elements in the republican party at least for the duration of the current congress when you see ten members voting to impeach president trump eleven members voting to strip. Marge taylor green of her committee assignments. It's very very clear that the vast majority of republicans are not eager to have that kind of all out battle against an extreme element in their own party at this time because they fear what will happen to them at the ballot box. That's absolutely right that so many times. The conversation about the battle within the republican party becomes about president trump verses one other person or Matt gaetz against liz cheney and the force that we really should talk about here is republican primary that there is still a broad sense within republican politics including at the leadership level. I in both the house and senate that republican primary voters really liked president trump and they are really drawn to a version of politics. That is totally alien to people who entered congress more than a couple of years ago and that the voices of extremism if they express themselves in a certain kind of way and on a certain kind of platform whether it's facebook or fox news. They really get the republican base riled up and most members of congress do not want to run headlong into that when they faced the voters again in a year You know as we're talking. I'm realizing that while january six did cause a kind of temporary flareup in this civil war. We've been discussing and made it impossible for the party to avoid something like these two votes. That just occurred in the house. Republicans are actually doing everything in their power to return to the dynamic of the past four years as quickly as possible right a dynamic in which they don't confront these divisions they don't confront extremism head on and a dynamic in which they put their heads down once again and hope that this silence this unwillingness to reject her right elements of the party doesn't become a liability with voters or cause more violence and that in their actions over the past week. They have made the decision not to confront it. Basically they continue to put off this reckoning and hope that enough americans are comfortable with the republican party. That somehow holds space for both liz. Cheney and marjorie taylor green. That's absolutely right.

"Marjorie taylor green fake news media the dc swamp the political establishment. Trying to take me out. But there's definitely more or less than there is them so green is a figure who comes from a very very red district in northern georgia. It's an open seat in the twenty twenty election. It's a crowded primary and as this is happening all kinds of stuff from her past and frankly really. Her present starts to come out in terms of her flirtation with cunanan conspiracy. Theories offensive comments that she has made about a range of groups and political figures so we knew that martyr green was an extreme figure last year when she was a candidate for the house but in the aftermath of the election and the aftermath of january six we see new proof of that over and over again we see video of her harassing one of the parkland students. David hogg who then becomes a gun. Control activist we get new detail on. Just how outlandish some of her conspiracy theories have been anti semitic conspiracy theories about the rothschild family using a laser weapon to start fires in california suggesting that perhaps a plane did not hit the pentagon on nine eleven. This is just as far out as it gets for somebody who actually holds federal office and it is a very vivid illustration of the kind of extreme figure who has come into the political arena on the strength of president trump's movement but who is actually more extreme than trump himself. So how do these to house. Republicans who could not be further apart in background and belief. End up on such a clear. Collision course as the republican party is debating whether to punish cheney weather to eject from leadership. There's a parallel debate happening both within the republican party but also within the congress as a whole involving the democrats do control the majority in the house of representatives about what to do about somebody. As extreme as marjorie taylor. Green somebody who democrats i think unanimously see as complicit in the violence of january sixth and weathering somebody like her can be tolerated in the chamber at all let alone sitting on specific committees like the education committee and we see that debate about what to do about green and her place in the house. Culminate almost literally at the same time as the republican. Party's debate about cheney in a meeting within the republican conference this last week and that sort of inevitably turns these two figures into contest cases for the various future identities of the republican party. You could see this as a moment where the party is really at a crossroads. And we're republican leaders and were rank and file. Republicans have to decide. Are going to be the party of liz. Cheney arguably the party marjorie taylor green or are they going to somehow try to be a party that encompasses both of them. That includes both a lawmaker. Who was one of the most prominent voices encouraging the stop. The steel conspiracy theories that culminated on january six and someone like me who becomes the loudest and.
"marjorie taylor" Discussed on Alyssa Milano: Sorry Not Sorry
"Hi i'm congressman. Jimmy gomez and i represent los angeles california. I working to expel margin jailer. Green from congress. Sorry not sorry congressman gomez you have introduced a bill to expel georgia congresswoman. Marjorie taylor green. Tell us why. I introduced this bill. Because i believe marjorie taylor. Green is a direct threat to every single member in the house of representatives. She has issued direct threats to members before she ever got elected. And i think that that threat continues. She comes to the house. She claims to the house office building with guns tries to go around the metal detectors to the house floor and screening the rules way. She comes every day with guns. She has claimed that she has guns in our office which was allowed in the house of representatives is that a member can bring a gun to our office. There's members that have guns in their offices. I heard ar fifteen handguns all sorts of different things. They can bring it here and we're not search. You've been here as the security. We go round metal detectors to get into the building but ever since mardi taylor. Grade helps inside the insurrection. Other new members of congress that said that they're gonna try to bring guns on the floor a couldn't place metal detectors and they as in the rules committee speaker pelosi but the republican members have been going around the metal detectors so that they would have be searched. One guy actually. I forgot what member it was. But he set off the alarm and try to hand his handgun off to somebody else thursday. It was maryland's loan republican congressman. Andy harris who was stopped and then return gun. He was carrying to his office. According to witnesses spoke to reporters harris his office issued a statement saying he never confirms whether he or anyone. He's with or carrying a firearm. For self defense a lot of republicans have guns in their offices and right now as they go around the metal detector on the floor can bring it onto the house floor which is against the rules by the way. I have so many questions crazy. I i want to ask. Do you think that this is now. Just what the republican party is. Let's say we expel marjorie. I'm not even gonna call her congresswoman grant but let's say we expel marjorie. Is it going to be like playing whack a mole. Where there're gonna continue to get elected i mean. How do we get them out. It just feels like this issue is so much bigger than just this one person. This issue is bigger than just one person. This issue is about how our country it's about who should be serving in. Who shouldn't she represents a wing of the republican party that is built on conspiracy theories that's built on hate that's built on anti-semitism she represents that wing and right now that rain is starting to dominate. The republican party mccarthy says he's conversation with her but doesn't want to call her to task they're afraid to take them on and if they're not willing to take them on democrats in the house have to and. I think that we can't stop. We have to keep going if they're no longer in office but they're still in the political discourse of this country. We have to continue going after them. It's dangerous to assume that it's gonna go away. I will say this. I underestimated that faction it Publican party the faction that stormed the capital on january I underestimated them. And i think it would be not living up to our own if we continue to underestimate that faction within the republican party. Well it's almost impossible to not see them now for exactly who they are and what they believe in of black and hispanic men. Do you want to know what holds them down gangs being gangs and dealing drugs is what holds them down. The lack of education is what hold holds them down. That's that's not a a white person thing but gangs control them. They tell them they tell the young men in their communities. Don't go to school don't you know don't you. Don't you move out of this out of this project. Don't you move out of this community. You join the gang and that's where you belong. You belong with us. The gangs are holding them back. It's not white people. it's crazy. I've obviously been to the capitol and i've been on the hill lobbying for many different issues and i remember security always being not as tight as i would've thought but for a member of congress i need to know in your heart. Just break it down for me. What is it like to go to work every single day in a building with a person who has indicated support for executing democrats people from the democratic party. People like you were more aware of that now thinking maybe it was wrong for a lot of members where we had a faucets of security in the capital in the house office buildings and we always assumed our colleagues harmless january six shatter that falsehoods security. See all of us together. When we rise up we can end all of this. We can end it. We can do it peacefully. I hope it doesn't have. We don't have to do it the other way i hope. Not but we should feel like we will if we have to because we are the american people and now i have to be more aware and trying to put myself away and keep distance from members. I just don't trust marjorie taylor. Green is one of the members. I don't trust there's others but nowadays especially with everybody wearing face masks it makes it a little bit more difficult. But it's definitely a new time and you era congress. Will we have to look over our shoulders when it comes to our own colleagues. I think pelosi was right. That enemy is within. i think. That's completely correct congressman. How naive were we not to think that. They were capable of the insurrection. When they were posting online on places like four chan and on social media that january sixth was going to be something major. Did we not take it seriously. How did it get some bad that there was such a lapse in judgment. I think a few things you have. People who are just spouting ideas and sandra could do x. y. and z. That out there right some folks were saying it could be seventeen seventy six all over again. It sounds insane right. It sounds like yeah. Yeah that's just hyperbole. That proved to be real. They literally believe that and we were underestimating their belief and the fact that the election got stolen the fact that they saw themselves real patriots. We really underestimate at all that because we thought they were just being crazy where cookie that there are fringe and.
Marjorie Taylor Greene: US House votes to strip Republican of key posts
"Report. That they're covid. Nineteen shot may not only protect against disease but also help to prevent spread of the sars o. V. two virus the news was heralded by policymakers desperate to see a vaccine that can curb the spread of the disease but scientists have been a bit more cautious if confirmed the results would represent a breakthrough in the covid nineteen vaccine race so far the shots authorized or approved around the world have shown strong protection against moderate to severe disease but haven't definitively proven that people who get vaccinated are less likely to spread the covid nineteen virus but the data say. Some experts is confusing. So it's hard to adequately evaluate the companies claim that the shot can actually slow the spread of covid nineteen or not in the study published on the lancet pre print server which means the results have not been peer reviewed a gold standard for ensuring the scientific rigor of the findings astra zeneca and oxford scientists. Report that two doses of their vaccine was overall sixty six point seven percent effective in protecting against covid nineteen disease as part of its analysis. The research team also collected nasal swabs from and unvaccinated study volunteers in the uk every week and tested them for the virus. The scientists found that positive tests were about fifty percent lower among people who got two doses of the vaccine compared to those who weren't vaccinated because people who don't test positive are less likely to spread the virus the researchers extrapolated from those data. The astra zeneca shot can transmission of the covid nineteen virus. However that may be a bit of a stretch says dr carlos. Del rio executive associate dean of emory school of medicine. It's a leap of science. That i think still needs to be proven. He says what they show is that there was either decreased viral shedding or decreased detection a virus however they do not actually show that transmission was decreased. We can say less. Transmission is a possibility but the data on. That needs to come out says del rio. We wanna state the facts and don't want to overstate the facts. That concern was echoed by health officials. In switzerland who decided this week to reject the astra. Zeneca shot the data available and evaluated to date are not yet sufficient for approval. The country's regulatory bodies swiss medic said on february third part of the concern has to do with the fact that the astrazeneca study underwent a number of changes after the phase. Three trial was begun. A fact that some infectious disease expert say makes it difficult to interpret the results for a clinical trial as crucial as this one modifying the setup once it's underway is similar to changing the rules in the middle of a game the study originally set out to investigate a single dose vaccine but was changed to two doses when concurrently conducted early studies show that to set doses of the vaccine produced a stronger immune response further because of what astrazeneca said. Were mistakes in measuring doses. Some people in the study in the uk received a half dose for their first shot and a full dose for the second. one people also got different placebos. Some god benign nina cockles solution and some a saline solution. That could mean nothing. But it's also unusual to have two. Placebos sends that has the potential to introduce con founders into the study and because of limited supplies. Some study participants had to wait more than the three to four weeks originally planned between their doses while others when told they couldn't come back for their second dose at the time they expected chose to simply not get their second shot entirely. Frankly the way they did. These trials was really confusing. Says dr paul off it. Director of the vaccine education center at children's hospital of philadelphia and a member of the us food and drug administration's advisory committee that reviews vaccines for authorization or approval. This is the stuff you figure out in phase one. You don't fool around in phase three and see what works he says. Here's what the researchers report after getting a single shot. Seventy six percent of participants were protected against disease for up to three months. Afterwards from their their levels of antibodies generated against the virus which scientists believe are important to protect against disease began to drop those results suggest that while two doses of the astra. Zeneca vaccine preferable. A single dose could still be useful for about three months in controlling covid. Nineteen that might be especially useful information to act on if vaccines are in. Short supply.
Biden pushing new stimulus bill regardless of Republican support
"It is a tale of two parties one's governing and the other star really clear what the other party is doing. Republicans are destroying themselves from the inside consumed with feuds over how loyal they can be to a former president. Who incited an insurrection. And fighting over what actions to take about the dangerous conspiracy spewing congresswoman marjorie taylor green meanwhile democrats want to pass laws and help americans who are hurting from the pandemic today. Joe biden made it clear he will pass his covid relief. Package with or without the support of the other side. A lot of folks are losing hope. And i believe the american people looking right now to their government for help to do our job to not let them down. So i'm going to act and i'm going to act fast. I've told both republicans and democrats. That's my preference to work together. But if i had to choose between getting help right now to americans who are hurting badly and getting drier bogged down in a lengthy negotiation or compromise on a bill. That's up to the crisis this an easy choice. I'm going to help. The american people are hurting now. Economic relief should not be a partisan issue. It's clear people hurting. But why helped. Millions of out of work americans when you can instead. Try to oust liz. Cheney from her republican leadership position because she got a case of morals for a moment and voted to impeach donald trump. There is so little talk of solutions from the gop. There hasn't been talk of it for four years. They're so little. Talk of helping the american people. It's just about them and their petty little internal dramas. They barely have ideas of their own and yet they refuse to endorse solutions. That are broadly supported by the american people. Sixty eight percent of americans support president. Biden's covid relief package. According to a brand new quinnipiac poll. Seventy eight percent are in favour of fourteen hundred dollar stimulus payments even sixty four percent of republicans support the stimulus payments. The white house knows that republicans are on the losing side of this. They even released a video about it. My message to our republican elected officials is to put our country first. And i think there should be a bipartisan effort to step up and try and assist these people and it's imperative act quickly before things get worse. Entered the better gives. A lot of people are hurting and need the relief as soon as possible. So i'm rooting for them. To get that done. Here is far deeper problem at the center of this thing. We don't actually know what republicans stand for anymore. They don't support popular legislation or offer solutions of their own now to be fair to republicans. It's hard to juggle ideas and solutions when your focus is pulled toward a dangerous conspiracy spewing freshman congresswoman from georgia whom you will defend at all costs for some unknown reason marjorie taylor. Green was stripped of her committee assignments this week for indicating support for the execution of prominent democrats with whom she now serves. Seems like a fairly reasonable action. Take but republicans balked. They spent more time talking about how unfair it was to the conspiracy speier than they ever have talked about helping americans in need. What do you stand for if you defend a woman who incites support for political violence. Our next guest democratic congressman jimmy gomez says removing marjorie. Green from committees isn't enough her city and her terrifying effect on the republican party require her removal from congress. According to the congressman but republicans would rather focus on feuds than see the obvious danger of keeping marjorie green or donald trump for that matter in office the very very small group who have condemned marjorie green or donald trump are paying the price republican congressman. Adam kinzer is being censured by illinois county republicans for taking actions quote contrary to the values of the gop contrary to the values of the gop. Senator ben sasse might be censured for the second time by nebraska republicans for not being deferential enough to trump. You are welcome to censure me again. But let's be clear about why this is happening because i still believe as you used to. The politics isn't about the weird worship of one dude. The weird worship of one dude. The republican party is not that familiar anymore. Doesn't have a set of values or principles defends a man who incites an insurrection and defends a woman who supports political violence and it barely utter a peep about the millions. The millions of jobless americans struggling just to survive through no fault of their
Marjorie Taylor Greene says Republican Party is Trump’s and ‘doesn’t belong to anyone else’
"Jonathan the Republicans in the House of Representatives this week voted in just in the last day voted not to take away committee assignments from Marjorie. Taylor Greene, conspiracy theorist of someone who's made deeply disturbing statements. They left it to the full house, meaning Democrats took that vote, she said. Green said today that it didn't really bother her that committees don't matter. And besides, it's Donald Trump's party anyway. Is she right? Well, she's right in that it's Donald Trump's party. But she's wrong about the fact that it doesn't matter. It does matter. And if she doesn't think committee assignments are being assigned to a committee matters, then she shouldn't be in government. She should resign her seat if she doesn't believe that, sitting on a committee, doing the work of being an elected representative and representing your constituents in Congress. If that doesn't matter, then perhaps you should go back to Georgia. But this is indeed Donald Trump's party, and we saw it with the votes that were taken within the Republican caucus. Marjorie Taylor Greene was able to hold on to her committee seat because the vote was a public vote. Within the caucus, Liz Cheney was able to hold on to her to her leadership post within the Republican caucus because that vote was a secret ballot, and we talked all last week or all this week about how her hold on her leadership post was tenuous because the base was so angry. The caucus was so angry And yet by secret ballot, she won reelection to that leadership post within the caucus overwhelmingly, so this might be Donald Trump's Republican Party. But behind closed doors within the Republican caucus, at least says it's playing out in the house. There are some tensions there.
Marjorie Taylor Greene removed from House committee assignments
"Center. All three Republican, U. S. Representatives from our state voted against removing Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee assignments, even though two of them are making it clear they do not Support the Georgia congresswoman's more controversial ideas more from coma, score one. Hey, Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Spokane, Dan Newhouse of Sunnyside and Jamie Herrera Butler of Vancouver may not endorse Greens views, but they rallied around House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who called the move to strip green of her committee assignments unprecedented Never Before in the history of this house. Has the majority abused its power in this way, Never. McMorris Rodgers makes it clear in a statement. Greens positions are not her positions, saying many of greens comments are quote beneath the dignity of her office. Herrera Butler is more specific, saying in a statement that despite what Green has claimed School shootings are not false flag events. California wildfires were not ignited by a space laser and the presidential election was not stolen. But she goes on to say she would not set a precedent where the majority party now dictates the way the minority seats its members, she writes. Quote that is a route to
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene removed from House committees
"News. Last night, House Republican leadership met for hours trying to decide what to do about controversial GOP congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. In the end, the deeply divided house voted 230 to 1 99 to strip her of her committee seats over incendiary remarks she made before being elected in November. Before the vote, Congressman Greene spoke to her colleagues saying it all started after President Trump was elected. She certainly supported him. But she didn't like what she heard about Russian collusion. These things bothered me deeply. And I realized just watching CNN or Fox News. I may not find the truth. And so what I did is I Started looking up things on the Internet, asking questions like most people do everyday use Google And I stumbled across something and this is at the end of 2017 called Q it on Well, these posts were mainly about this Russian collusion, information. Ah, lot of it was some of what I would see on the news at night, and I got very interested in it. So I posted about it on Facebook or read about it. I talked about it. Ask questions about it, and then more information came from it. But you see, here's the problem throughout 2018. Because I was upset about things and didn't trust the government. Really? Because the people here weren't doing the things that I thought they should be doing for us. The things that I just told you I cared about And I want, you know, a lot of Americans don't trust our government, and that's sad. The problem with that is, though, is I was allowed to believe things that weren't true, and I would ask questions questions about them and talk about them. And that is absolutely what I regret. Because if it weren't for the face, book post and comments that I liked and 2018, I wouldn't be standing here today and you couldn't point a finger and accuse me of anything wrong. Because I've lived a very good life that I'm proud of. My family's proud of my husband's proud of my Children are proud of And that's what my district elected me for. So in 20 later in 2018. When I started finding Miss information lies things that were not true in these. Q and on post, I stopped believing it. After Congressman Greene spoke Majority leader Steny Hoyer reference the historic nature of this vote. It was pretty historic when you think about what they did last night, where 11 Republicans joined Democrats in voting to kick her off of those committees. I've had the great honor of serving this body for 40 years. And in that time I have never encountered a situation like the one before us. Now we remember has made such vile and hurtful statements engaged in harassment of colleagues. Expressed support. Political violence. To do nothing. Would be an abdication of our moral responsibility to our colleagues to the house to our values to the truth and to our country. I've heard some condemnation from across the aisle of the contents. Representative Green statements. Some have condemned the white supremacist an anti Semitic things, she said, and posted online, some of condemned the falsehood she shared about 9 11. And the horrific school shootings. But I've heard little from Republicans about the horrific statements made by their colleague making threats of violence against Democratic elected officials. And her threatening conduct towards represented Bush and others. Indeed, Mr Speaker, there seems to be much silence when it comes to her incitement of political violence. Short while ago Representive Green came to this Florida defender indefensible conduct. I heard no apology. She claimed that we are here today only because of something she wrote online before she ever ran for Congress. And if one's moral slate is wiped claim when one becomes a candidate for office Regardless, the conduct we are judging today continued to occur even after represented Green became a candidate and even after she was elected, there is no doubt that if somebody came to the Congress, and it said before they came to gun Congress Am for violent revolution against the government of the United States of America, that your party Would say That's not somebody we want to be associated with. That's not what she said. I do not assert that What should we do Less? Then you did for Steve King for far less toxic language. Let us not do nothing. Let us do the right thing.

Mccarthy by the sandra via kevin mccarthy the house republican minority leader is trying to have it both ways the question for him and republicans everywhere is can he. The republican party is at a crossroads and the diverging pads forward are clear. One follows former president donald trump's politics and the other tries to move past him by virtue of his high profile position mccarthy whether he wants to or not will play a decisive role in choosing which route the party goes in the post trump era. This week mccarthy is facing the personification of this problem in representative marjorie taylor.

Mccarthy has refused to take decisive action to discipline green and signal. what is and isn't acceptable. In republican politics instead accountability has fallen to democrats who on thursday put a resolution on the house floor that removed green from her congressional committees and put republican lawmakers on the record over whether they support her.

They're savvy angelo. But let's get to today's big story the battle over georgia congresswoman marjorie taylor green rising republican star and the friend. Everyone ignores in the group text. Green is known for her history of deranged beliefs ranging from racist conspiracy theories about jewish space lasers to supporting kohl's to execute democratic politicians. Now democrats con. Stop her from serving in congress and they definitely can stop. Her from saying crazy shit's but today they decided to give her just a little less input on running the country tonight house. Democrats taking unprecedented steps voting distribute freshman congresswoman marjorie taylor green a member of the opposing party of her committee assignments. She's going to be removed from the house education and labor committee as well as the house budget committee. She's going to be a member of the house of representatives for the next two years but she's going to be a member without being able to serve on any of these committees yes people lodge retain. A green has been kicked off her committees. But if you think about it this is a pretty sweet deal for green. Basically her punishment for acting insane was to do less work for the same amount of money and honestly i think kicking off. These committees could actually backfire. The last thing you want to do with a crazy person is give them time to be crazy. That's why they should put her on all the committees. Then you'll never hear from her again. Excuse me when are we going to talk about those jewish spice lasers well no i. We need to discuss the budget for the ashphalt. Acquisitions sharon. Do you have the reports i don't know.

Very extreme views including endorsing political violence and anti semitic falsehoods sources say green was given a standing ovation from half of the members in the room after she expressed remorse for some of her past comments.

She said she knew nothing about lasers are all the different things that have been brought up about her. Damn kevin mccarthy. He's a gop. Oh gee i didn't hear shit didn't see shit and i definitely don't know shit she. It's truly amazing that this guy acts like he doesn't even know what cunanan is even after they tried to kill him. I mean most people would have in these google them at that point like eventually carole. Baskin must have been okay. I'll bite. who is this tiger king. Because i mean i should figure this out right and it's not like these guys don't have the time to research conspiracy theories because when it comes to hunt a biden.

"Significant part of the republican base. You mentioned house speaker. Pelosi responded to this. There was news that house minority leader. Kevin mccarthy met with green tuesday night. I'm told from multiple sources that the discussion came up about. Whether he would apologize. She indicated she would not apologize or correct or past remarks house. Republicans will have to vote on removing her from committees on thursday. What of other. Republicans in congressman saying about all. This mccarthy hasn't really tipped his hand but some pressure was put on him by now minority leader in the senate mcconnell. Who released a pretty remarkable statement on monday really railing against marjorie taylor green. Who does not mention by name but you know makes it very clear in the statement that he is referring to her in. It says quote looney lies and conspiracy. Theories are tensor for the republican party and our country. Somebody who suggested that. Perhaps no airplane hit the pentagon nine eleven that horrifying school shootings were pre staged and that the clintons crash j. of key juniors airplane is not living in reality. End quote So this obviously represents a pretty clear effort on behalf of mcconnell's to put some distance between john faction of the republican party and himself and he represents so that you know. Put some pressure on mccarthy to push for perhaps removing marjorie taylor green from the education committee. I mean as outlandish and even scary as all of this is from jewish space lasers to marjorie taylor. Green liking comments about killing her opposition are democrats and republicans. And the country at large stuck with marjorie taylor green. Who was duly elected by the people of georgia's fourteenth congressional district. They probably are. I mean there's a long precedent for members of congress being removed. It takes two thirds vote to expel a member of congress Given that there is not that much interest on the republican side in expelling. Mercury taylor green In terms of her being in congress we probably are stuck with her until twenty. Twenty two at this point As with so many other things in society these days there is a sense in which d platforming or removing. a member of congress from committee is effective You just have to refer back to twenty nineteen When steve king following comments that he made kind of embracing white supremacy in a new york. Times interview was removed from his committees by house. Republican leadership and that culminated in steve king. Losing a primary for his seat in iowa and now he is a former congress person. So you know if there was a move to remove marjorie taylor. Green from committee is that she sits on it could have an impact in terms of her prospects of winning a republican primary next time around but given again that it takes a two thirds vote to expel a member of congress from the house. It seems quite unlikely at this point that there's going to be sufficient. Republicans support for that to be.

"There were three near the start of the civil war who were kicked out for disloyalty to the union and then there are a couple of recent more recent cases. One nine hundred eighty and two thousand two Both of those involved lawmakers convicted of crimes like bribery. But in general congress leaves it to voters. iowa congressman. Steve king was not booted despite comments that many of his colleagues deplored and that is an interesting case there. The republicans did remove him from committee assignments But that was done within the republican conference as i understand it not As a a vote by the the opposite party the opposite party majority doing that that was that was republicans doing some discipline on their own yet. We're talking about two separate things here on the spectrum of what could happen to greet. You started out by talking about expelling her. That would be a a huge break with precedent and a very aggressive in part because to expel her from congress would be to override the will of the voters in her district. Who put her in that seat And moreover it would be doing it for things as you mentioned and conduct. That happened before she arrived in congress. And so i mean imagined by the way to if that did become a precedent where you could just start. Willy nilly removing people For anything that might have happened in their past and override voters in a district. The second thing we're talking about is Republican moves or moves By the entire house to strip her of committee assignment and it would be one thing for republicans to now decide that they're going to reassign her or remove her from certain committees. That's entirely within their right to do. Although as i mentioned earlier there are Certain votes that have to be taken in agreements that have to be made is not something that can simply done by minority leader kevin mccarthy unilaterally but for democrats to strip her of committee assignments would be again a huge break in president. And it's kind of concerning because it would essentially be the majority party telling the minority party where they can assign their people and while it might be in one instance in this case you know. I've already heard republicans talking about what that could mean in the future. I mean if you can take that position for one person maybe you can just tell. Every member of the republican party in the minority whip can watch committee. everybody has to sit on And that is just not how the house operates..

"Last few years. Some of color censure even expulsion from office this week democratic leadership gave the gop and ultimatum strip. Marjorie taylor green of her assignments on the education and budget committees within seventy two hours. Or they'll do it themselves. But greg says in some ways that reaction plays right into marjorie taylor. Greens hands look. She wants to be martyred and you can tell by her twitter. Feed that she it. Just all this does is is fuel. Her claims that she is being censored that she is being cast aside but look house. Lawmakers are in a very tough this situation with this because democrats. And i said this is a republican issue that we would they prefer that republicans deal with this but when they put her on in house leaders. Republican leaders put her on the education committee even after it became evident The videos came forward show that she was mocking victims of mass shootings at sandy hook at parkland high schools home of two of the most notorious mass shootings in schools. It became an untenable situation for democrats. So it sounds like you're saying you don't think the democrats have a choice. I think that it became really difficult for democrats. Step stand aside and do nothing. Republicans weren't gonna do anything so this became the kind of middle option. They they gave the republicans one more chance to do something and if not she'll lose her seats onto the more influential committees in congress. How do you think our constituents are gonna see all this most of them as the people who supported her. November are going to echo what she's been saying. They're going to echo the fact that this is another example of republican trump supporters. Being silenced. it's why she's wearing a censored mask and she will definitely be sending fundraising emails out about it. She'll probably raise another boatload of cash off this. She raised about one point. Six million dollars in a few days in the run-up to the controversy. So she essentially said after..

"I'm not sure how effective that is in. Sort of quieting down. The kind of rhetoric that marjorie taylor. Green is putting out there. Appeasement is like. We'll have kevin mccarthy the house. Republican leaders says all the conversation with her. That's not exactly the type of response that we could have expected a few years ago in the pre trump era. Or something like that one. It's funny because if you look back when these videos in comments started getting some national attention back in june before she was a congresswoman kevin mccarthy was asked about this stuff back then and he seemed to be stronger than he is. Now you know we said. These comments are appalling leader. Mccarthy has no tolerance for them. This is a spokesperson for minority. Leader kevin mccarthy but now murderers taylor green comments still out there resurfacing again and she's on the education committee and he saying okay. I'm going to give her a talking to. It's really different. Exactly more than a few people have have noted that the republican response to marjorie taylor green in congress has been far more muted than the republican response to liz cheney who is one of the ten republicans who voted for the impeachment of president trump. You know the lives change getting more backlash for for voting for the peach than marjorie taylor. Green did for endorsing the death of the house speaker right so and that may tell you what you need to know. Yeah and look. And that's too to a lesser degree or two different degrees happening in georgia. We're not hearing the governor or the the former senators or any of the parties top statesmen coming out in morning. What would happen. You know saying that. Barger taylor green needs to be ousted or censored or whatever you know whatever punishment or saying this does not represent georgia and look mirrored. What happened after trump lost georgia november. It took a very long time for republican leaders to say to speak out against trump calling rigged election. There was this gradual process it. Some republicans like secretary state and lieutenant governor pushed back immediately but others took a very long time. until they said georgia's election was free and fair. Let's move on. It's the democrats. Were.

"Green cannot be disconnected from the rise of president trump like trump. Her superpower is railing against the establishment an establishment. She's quickly becoming part of. You could see this contradiction most clearly last month when the house met to debate president trump second impeachment and representative green wore a mask with the word censored across the front even though she was speaking to millions live. Greg says there's another way. This representative is like trump while she has aggressively courted. A rural. base marjorie taylor. Green doesn't come from the same world as her constituents. The missed a lot in the national. A conversation is that. She's not some backwards. Like redneck. i mean people will put these the deliverance memes up when she speaks. She's not that time. And this is nothing against people who are born in raised in that district. A lot of my friends are but she's from a very wealthy neighborhood. Metro atlanta. Her kids went to very expensive private schools. She's comes from a very fluent background. She's not some you know. Some critics wanna painters backwards bumpkin. And that's just not who she is. Yeah can we talk about the people in marjorie taylor district and what they think of all this and i don't know if we have a good read on it but you know she's in his very white district. It's been hit really hard by kofoed. What else do we know about the people there and how they are looking at their new congresswoman. Yeah it's very white very conservative. Very rural mix. Some exurbs is not saved served by giant media market and there's not a very dominant news outlet paper that provides information So a lot of the voters i talked to during my visits the district told me that their primary sources of information we're social media or very conservative out the other day. The couple of days ago margin taylor. Green held several town hall meetings. For constituents and i listened in on them and over and over again you heard this fantasy narrative playing out because she sponsored some kind of pushed impeach joe biden choose the republicans lunch period on this legislation is going to go nowhere to impeach joe biden just as he took office and yet at these town hall meetings. Her constituents are treating it seriously. They're asking serious questions about. Why is the mainstream media not paying attention. What is the what is the hearing of the start. How soon is joe biden going to be out of office those kinds of questions about legislation that objectively is going nowhere. Not even fox news is reporting as viable but there but her constituents are getting the message from alternative news sources that this is somehow this legit push to remove joe biden from office. That's such an important point that part of the way. The disinformation spreads grows is. When there's not trusted vetted source out there and it sounds like that's another way that martyr taylor..

"Wanna hear the name. Marjorie taylor green. I think a series of disturbing superlatives. She's only known congressperson to believe in the on conspiracy theory she is the congresswoman who filed articles of impeachment against joe biden his first week in office and a few days back. She got into an argument in the hallway with another freshman congresswoman corey bush. Afterwards bush physically moved her office at the capital just to avoid representative green. But it's not. How greg blue steam knows marjorie taylor green. I mean you gotta remember th- when she first started running. She was running for a suburban a moderate suburban congressional district in metro atlanta. And she wanted to meet with me greg. In atlanta he's a political reporter at the atlanta journal. Constitution the ajc and so we met at a little coffee shop not far from where i live inside a pleasant meeting with her at a learned a lot about her background and then these videos came out. These videos are the other thing i think about when i hear marjorie taylor. Greens name there are hours of them. David why are you supporting the red flag laws national outlets have only started surfacing them over the last couple of weeks but greg. He's known the videos for months. They show marjorie taylor. Greens political life. Before she was elected to office in one she seems to have traveled to the capital simply to follow parkland a school shooting survivor around to try to pick a fight with them. Then there's video of her attempting to tell muslim congresswoman that they can't be sworn in using koran. We're gonna explain about how you can't swear in and we're gonna have the bible and ask them if they would swear in on the bible that we really need. Yeah we have the yet. It's ugly stuff. The kind of stuff. Greg thought would certainly tank marjorie taylor. Greens run for office but it didn't it luckily for her. The northwest georgia district which is far more conservative. It's one of the most trump friendly districts in the eastern seaboard. Well that that congressman. Tom graves decided to retire within weeks. She decided to pack up. Move to north west georgia and run for that seat. She was able to basically transplant an entire campaign operation. She had already built to run for the sixth district over to north west georgia.

David hogg red light gun laws that attack our second amendment right. How do you get avid gun. Owners and people that support the second amendment to give up their guns and go along with anti gun legislation. How do you do that. Maybe you accomplish that by performing mass shooting into a crowd that is very likely to be conservative. Is that what happened in las vegas. Have you seen the picture of ruth. Baiter gingrich walk into the airport. Butler hillary clinton so is interesting. So i do not believe that was ruth negga. I don't think so. I don't need wow okay. So our bg has body double. Hillary clinton has a body double one makes it sound like everyone has their own body double. I mean that's such a silly thing to believe you'll the weekend they're onto us get out of them and raw but the big question is how did osama bin karen get elected to congress in the first place well it turns out she was lucky to be one of nine republicans running for the seat. So everyone's attention was spread around instead of focused on her kind of like how. There are so many different kinds of oreo. Now that you hardly even notice that one of the flavors of human flesh and while some of the cuban on stuff did come out mostly what voters knew about her was that she was a hardcore trump supporter. And yet she sometimes sounded like a crazy person but only in a comforting familiar way. She's a former trough in gym owner. Who has a few roles editor father's construction company but really has no political background at all. America's the greatest country in the world. We need conservatives in washington that will keep it that way. The democrat party is no longer an american party. They are now the party of socialism. They wanna rip our borders wide open. They wanna kill babies up until birth. And maybe even afterwards i have a message for antifa terrorists. Stay the hell out of northwest georgia god. Damn i'm no which house.

"So when i talked about the untenability of the current situation i thought this tweet between this exchange between aoc and ted cruz today. Kind of summed. It up right. There's this kind of left right. Populist momentum against robin hood the trading app that cut off the traders that were know mucking around with with these wall street bigwigs and aoc talked about it. And ted cruz. Says i agree with this right like a nice moment of left right unity and the nail says i'm happy to work with republicans on this issue with common ground but you almost had me murdered three weeks ago so you can sit this one out. Happy to work with almost any other. Gop that aren't trying to get me killed in the meantime. If you want to help you can resign. it's like i just. Rebecca appreciated congressman. Cortez ocasio. Cortez making the subtext text. But this is not a way that any democratic legislative body can function right. And the thing that i think we have to reckon with and the democrats have to reckon with and i think that alexandria ocasio cortez is going further in this reckoning than a lot of other people have yet is that this is not a problem that began or is going to end with marjorie taylor green or even just with ted cruz or josh hawley or lauren. Bogert this has been happening. Stipulating that the politics of white supremacists resentment and violent misogyny and delegitimization exists. Extend decades into the republican party is passed. You could see this building this exact set of violent antagonism toward democracy itself toward the united states and its institutions building during the presidency of barack obama. You saw these exact patterns conspiracy theories around de legitimizing. His presidency people yelling at him. You lie accusing the president of dishonesty treating him as illegitimate. You could see it in the summer of two thousand sixteen. When you had a new hampshire lawmaker calling for hillary clinton to be taken out on firing line and shot for treason. He did that three times in public new hampshire state estate politician who was donald trump delegate. You also saw trump himself. Threatening to imprison hillary clinton i mean absolute violations and antagonism toward the united states its institutions and its electoral practices building and building. The republican party has had a long time to decide what to do with this with trump after a little performative window-dressing. We don't like him. They accepted him. And that open antagonism toward the united states and its electoral processes and toward democracy entered the white house. We now see it has come into you know the house with some of these individuals and and with holly and crews in the senate but it's not about the individuals anymore. The party has welcomed him in. It is appointing them to committees. It is what what alexandria ocasio cortez said she. Last night was so powerful that mccarthy's not in control of his caucus. And i would argue. Neither is mitch mcconnell at this point either when he turned from chastising trump to to at made the turn this past week to no no. We're not gonna to do this. These men are being led by this faction of their party. The party has embraced. So how do you treat an entire political party. That is working antagonistically aggressively and violently against the united states. Yeah and they're leaning. I said this. I raised us to representative gomez the total absence. I mean it's not just it's not just there's there's no apologies or second thoughts it's it's full speed ahead right so there. Was this moment the other day. The hawaii state. Gop you know tweeted. Hey check out a video from this guy who then was a holocaust denier. You could like pull up his youtube. And it's like oh the showers auschwitz really showers. It's like whoa. Okay what's going on here and then the hawaii. Gop put out this statement. I accept full responsibility for the unauthorized tweets posted by our former vice jarrett communications. He's resigned. Our party believes it's free speech responsibility. Each of us must carry in order to maintain a good injustice society promoting content for the purpose of shock. Value does not help us build a more perfect union to our friends in jewish community. We find the cons. We deeply disturbing and offensive had no place in our party. Much less our country now. It's not a perfect but it's something that that's the only one of those you can find. That's it that's what you i think that. Aoc hit on something last night which is really the point here. They're not apologizing because they're not sorry they agree with some of these positions not the far the most crazy of the conspiracy theories but certainly after the twenty twelve election when the republican party did an autopsy which said the racism is hurting you because the emerging the emerging demographics of a majority coalition of people of color is coming down the pike in. The republican party decided to double down on the racism in many ways. I think that what you've seen in the past couple of weeks since the election was certified is them react similarly to the way that they did twenty twelve to the autopsy. They doubled down on the racism and they were strict the votes of people who are less likely to vote for them and so. That's basically the strategy here. Chris and i think that the problem is that it's not really a political strategy. They're not engaged in this project of democracy that the rest of us are participating in because they don't actually want voters to make decisions and elect people. And even in the case of marjorie taylor green. I think you know if she was your child's teacher. I do not think that she would still be employed. I'm having posted these things publicly and said these things publicly and so it's awfully concerning that. She has a position of immense power in the house of representatives Just having the held these views and express them publicly. Lena's point this article in the guardian today. Republicans considering more than one hundred bills to restrict voting rights currently one hundred six pending bills across twenty eight states that would restrict access to voting we slide from the rothschild lasers right and that and the and the fraudulent election to of course the natural attempts to curtail voting. This is all sort of a piece or lena. Maxwell and rebecca tracer. Thank you both tonight. Three weeks of silence.
