"You. Boy is he right. What a powerful, powerful, elegant summary of the state of affairs in today's Democrat party. So listen, for me, the only thing left to watch is if any Republican senator is going to vote for. And I can't imagine why they would. Matthew Whitaker wrote a real, real important piece at Fox News dot com, the former acting AG in the Trump administration. He says, following justice Stephen Breyer's retirement, Biden nominated judge katangi, Brown Jackson, a progressive favorite with a troubling legal record and well documented allegiance to left wing causes to take his seat on the high court. Despite what some establishment Republicans might think, her nomination raises all kinds of causes for concern. As NBC News reported because the fact is, Democrats don't even attempt to abide by the impression that they care about fundamental constitutional rights. Or will nominate judges who render sound constitutional judgments. She's the latest example of this trend. Based on every available indication, a justice Jackson on the Supreme Court would serve not as a neutral interpreter of the constitution, but rather as a reliable rubber stamp for many of progressive's most prized policy goals, consider what NBC News called her. NBC News said, Brown Jackson fits well with the Democratic Party and the progressive movements agenda indeed. Far left advocacy groups persistently encouraged Biden to consider her as the replacement for Breyer. She's who they want. And her record, she has blocked the Trump administration's executive orders aimed at holding federal employees accountable. A decision that was unanimously reversed by the D.C. circuit, she stymied president Trump's ability to deport illegals. She probably doesn't even call them illegal or alien in her decisions regarding immigration. She upheld a program that established explicitly race based preferences in the awarding of government contracts, giving the impression that she's a disciple of the left's identity politics regime. And whalen over at national review wrote that she is not highly regarded as a judge. She has a striking record of reversals by the D.C. circuit. But most importantly, this is the part that I need your help with. Because as I hear Lindsey Graham's passionate, question of her as he tweeted out when she was announced, Biden caved to the far left, why would he vote for her? Why would any Republican vote for her? Matthew Whitaker is right. After the way they treated justice Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett. In which they, for example, they said that she wasn't qualified because of her faith because she was a Catholic. No Republican senator should feel in any way inclined to vote yes. For her. She's regarded as a partisan tool of the radical left. She is exactly the opposite of what we should expect from the Supreme Court Justice. Now, the deck is stacked, the Democrats have the votes unless Joe Manchin or kyrsten sinema decide to break ranks, but what can you give me a good reason why any Republican would vote yes? Republicans must be united in voting against the nomination of justice brown Jackson and for the life of me, I can't come up with a good reason why they would fail to do so.

"Can we just take a moment to be thankful that we live in a country in which we can acknowledge our past and acknowledge our present and hope for the future? Is it possible without moving into a who's more woke debate about where our country came from and how it existed and how it came? At this point in time, unless you trace your lineage back thousands of years, everybody is living on land that at one point in time they probably their ancestors didn't come from a lot of them didn't. A lot of them in Europe, you know, they're but as people expand out. Relatives came from other places, but America has always been a melting pot for everyone. This is the part that just bothers me. We can keep rehashing about what is wrong or bad or weakening. Knowledge and say, what do we do to work forward? How do we do this as we go forward as a country? And that's the issue that I think so many of our people, the people in the country are waiting for. They're just waiting. For us to have honest conversations. Because at the end of the day, I'll just say this. With Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror now, Thanksgiving for many is a time in which they see their families, they have a time to eat, or they have a time to share. For some, you know, you haven't always the family squabbles or the family arguments, but at the end of the day, it's about coming together and sharing what's good about this country. I mean, every day of the year, you have a chance to share what you don't like. And even though Thanksgiving, you have that right. But isn't there at least a time when you're thankful for the right to protest? Now let's just put it in a different perspective. Thankful for the ride to have the ability to tweet things like that. I guess not for some is they move forward. This is really just the frustrating part for so many as we come on. Folks, we have got so much left coming up here in the next few weeks. The node Collins podcast, we're gonna be delving into these issues. We've got some great guests coming up. We're trying to get narrow Scott on, reverend out of Cleveland, Ohio, great friend, to this program, and great friend coming up his pastor in his work in the community.

My Whitaker plays a big role in it looking forward to talking with him this week and sharing those times with you. But this is just a lot going on. My thing is, be safe. Enjoy the freedoms you have. And every once in a while, give thanks. Because when you give thanks a thankful heart as a grateful heart, and then we can look at each other. And say, I'm a disagree with you. I don't like you. I don't like what you say, but I respect the right that we live here in America and we can come to an agreement that the rights that we've been given are the reason we have a grateful and thankful nation. We have that we have everything. So folks, go out, be thankful for what you got. God bless you. We'll see you next time on the Doug Collins podcast..

"Justice withdrawing these charges, we want these charges dismissed, but here's Flynn now before a federal judge in a federal judge is saying no I'm not going to dismiss these charges I'm going to go find someone to argue to put you in prison. Despite the fact that the government itself says that the the argument, the predicate argument for putting you in prison in the first place has disappeared. This is crazy. Am I wrong? It absolutely is inconsistent with anything. I've ever seen rule forty eight of the federal federal rules of criminal procedure. Do not allow judge to do what he's doing. I think the appeals court is going to crack down berry swiftly on his extra judicial process. For determining to dismiss this case, all you have to do with the abuses in that filing by the Department of Justice in it's outrageous, and this is one of the things I don't understand. We should not be for or against the prosecution of General Flynn, which should be for justice being done, we should be following the rule of law, and if you read that filing, there's only one outcome, and that is dismissing this case. As quickly as Bosnia's guy got, this guy got setup. He got pressured. They threatened to Sun. They wanted him to perjure himself in a in a different case. His lawyer seem to be working for the other team until he got a new set of attorneys. Led by one awesome lady named Cindy Powell. But the judges saying will because you pled guilty. Now you're saying you're not guilty. And the Department of Justice, the saying you're not guilty. That's perjury because you pled guilty. Yeah. It's not I mean there's a lot of different reasons. People plead guilty. And you know once the full force of the Department of Justice's leaning on you, and with the speedy trial act, and all the types of things. There's not a lot of ways to go about this, and so you know I.

J. drive this is a huge timing is everything that I and I but I opened the show with this Matthew a general it's just that what's happening now because I I said the Republicans got to fight back boy are they ever so give us your thoughts on the DOJ dropping these charges against general Flynn Sir yes so I watched the Attorney General ball on his interview is talking about this and you know I was so Horton because if you think about the Obama administration the department job so how politicized department justice became an out call me and the people are going after in trying to prove a case against trump campaign that never existed and that I see a cave bars this was the case in state this is what the law demands it is so refreshing to have someone that is willing to sit in that chair and make tough decisions because it is what the law demands that was popular not what's you know otherwise the politically expedient what is what the law demands that we've got to be home the scales of justice we just have a point that we use for storing it and we all have worked so hard to bring this department justice back to place integrity and to you know sound decision making our reform efforts see if you were still a G. Matthew Whitaker would you have done the same thing that A. G. Barr get based on the publicly available information and everything I know about that case I think that's what had to happen to me there is you know a lot of hand wringing on the layout because you know they they want you know heads on the door of the door frame to demonstrate you know some political message that they can help them with elections but if you look at the case there was no we've got to be investigating format so no predication move back to you one one there's no reason to interview them and then you know Jim Comey bragged about how he sent these guys for the day and four days into the couple ministration I think that I would never get away with this in the book Mr he should have never done it in the trunk mystery because the world has changed you should follow the exact same process and this is this is what is my book that I talk a lot about is how great you and the way things are supposed to be done that cutting corners and doing things because you're smarter and more politically sophisticated because of your years in Washington DC if not the way it's done yeah the books coming out for Matthew Whitaker called above the law you know a man Matthew have you had a great column for fox news dot com would you say this decision is critical in restoring confidence in the department of justice how did the DOJ lose public confidence to begin with was it was it because of Jeff sessions I mean there we say that well I it looks at it I think it started in the alley morado lens and all those folks I mean if you think about white women about menstruation came in we had clear voter intimidation by the photo in two thousand eight and older came and said not to prosecute cases and and then we were off to the races from there and and their decisions were working and not based on what the law demands but again what was politically expedient and if you have little ones with a meeting on the tarmac all these kind of things that and and then hurt on willingness to step aside from the country's once you should clearly compromised you know I just think there's a series of events that the department of justice and the FBI because of the actions of a few people because there's so many wonderful people to deal with the guys that work hard every day to do the right thing you bad apples they did things that were high profile they were inconsistent with sort of regular order in the end com and the usual procedures and policies that we do every day I am so somebody had to take the bull by the horns a little boring and I was happy to do my part in transitioning from Jeff sessions to bill Parcells we haven't seen him you know transfer to somebody that I just know it's really on top of the game and you know get it usually will come to Washington DC getting getting describes the role and care about what's next care about what you know there will be tension is and can they get a job in the private sector when the administration is over in another five years and your bill Barton Kerry mountains in the distance you came back to the court of justice to fix things and so I think he's doing a great job I have a lot of yeah and you give credit to Jeff sessions indeed he made the decision to fire Andrew McCabe correct yep I was there when that decision was made and if you think about it you know or call me Ambode and there's no doubt that Joe says that the barbecue we spoke with our lease page well Jim Baker look up you know we kind of I have to say we change the entire management structure yeah I think it's better work I know a lot of criticism Chris ray recently and you know we have to be seen whether L. bar you'll continue to have confidence in his leadership involves the president has spoken out about that but you know I think I would tell you that you know the F. B. I. is a much better place today than it was in twenty sixteen when you're just come running yeah and I always say Matthew Whitaker a former acting Attorney General of the United States and all around great guy Matthew that the rank and file of the FBI you know I go out I speak at these the regional offices sometimes you know and with the special agent in charge in their whole rank and file to do a spectacular job so it's tough for you being at the house you know you're the hierarchy in the United States being the Attorney General there and the only know you always appreciate the rank and file on the hard work they do at the FBI but you did have to clean up the top and president trump said it from day one it's amazing what happened to me they did you think this will lead to a bomb about to president Obama by the way is he you know he knew what was going on back you would occur you see that with the transcripts that came out W. or marked as a general we've been through she came in she became the acting Attorney General and in it Sally even when they bring the beltway in or we're talking about is about interacting the the the both Biden and Obama knew more than she could imagine they would know about the joke went to tourists clearly you know this was an effort to I I ice I continue to think and talk a lot about in an effort to welcome to the world sixteen elected president trump you know they really like about the two years we had with the Russia collusion investigation turned up no evidence and then you go right into impeachment and what I think you know some victims also still unpalatable to lock yes scary man before we let you go Matthew Roger stone Rogers on the the show a lot I know he put close personal friend of a of a a candidate trump and president trump what's going to happen with that case I mean it will he be exonerated Roger stone but that her mother probe was such a fiasco I hate to see this collateral damage it and Roger got caught right in it what what's your feeling in the stone case well there's there's so many people that will bring it up being target of the bone but each of that would not have otherwise ever been investigated but otherwise prosecutors in and so I think each one of those cases I would have to run its own unique course or at least it is hard for me to say in any particular case you know how with the final results are but I I certainly know that you know he's got a good team they're gonna use every you know tools that are available to try to you know to to make sure that in that case I met the listen you think could you find yourself returning to public service anytime soon Matthew Whitaker so I will work with public service I love and that W.
