Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Kurt Schlichter, author of Overlord, eighth in the series. Check it out. I'm hearing great things about it in the People's Republic series. Kurt, thank you for taking the time. Kurt, I was thinking who could we have on the show that's not going to hold anything back. Make our audience laugh about the Shakespearean tragedy and drama that we are witnessing. Kurt, how should we think about what is happening right now as we speak? Motion to vacate of Kevin McCarthy. Well, the whole thing reminds me of the sin of Onam. I think, you know, I'm trying to keep it FCC compliant here, Charlie. I'm an army guy. I want to know what the objective is. I don't like Kevin McCarthy. He's not my pal. I am completely indifferent to what happens to him. He is a tool in every sense of the word, but mostly to be used for an objective. What's the objective? Matt Gaetz. Why now? Why here? Why this? I know what the plan is. To the extent is it starts with vacating the chair. And step two, we're going to skip over that. And then step three is some better situation happens. I don't understand the plan. I understand that we've got a presidential primary going on. While we are talking about this, we are not talking about the lawfare against President Trump. We are not talking about the candidates and their policies. We are not talking about the Hunter Biden revelations that even The Washington Post can't ignore anymore. We're not talking about Jamal Bowman, who can't figure out the difference between a door and a fire alarm. I actually believe him there. I do think he is that dumb. Instead, we've got Matt Gaetz being followed by hundreds of regime media reporters who for the first time ever are thrilled to ask what Matt Gaetz, a hardcore conservative thinks only because they think it's going to cause chaos among the Republicans, which it is. And he appears to be eating this up. He appears to be loving this. He appears to have a personal beef against Kevin McCarthy. Not sure that his personal beef should have any play in here. Look, I'm all about winning. I don't understand how that wins. I haven't had a good explanation of how vacating the chair wins. Again, not a pal of Kevin McCarthy. It's not my favorite guy. I don't like him. I don't love him. But he's over Matt when Gaetz tosses him out with the help of the Democrats, who will never do anything that's good for the Republicans. So you could tell, you know, it's an important indicator. If the Democrats are united behind you in doing something, that's when you think, huh, maybe this isn't such a great idea. So I'm, you know, I'm concerned with winning legislative elections in Virginia, where we have to show people who have doubts about conservatives that we can govern. I'm concerned about winning in Kentucky, where we have a very important governor who's very likely to have to replace Mitch McConnell, whose health is failing. I want to, you know, is this going to help those things or hurt those things? What's the answer? I don't you take a giant leap to do something that hasn't been done in 113 years. You know, I'd like to know what the plan is. Am I crazy? No, no, there is no plan. And I understand the anger from the base. I'm going to read some emails here, though, Kurt. And I know and I get it because we have been betrayed on every major issue. So I get it. I feel the same way. I'm not even trying to do happy talk. I'm not trying to do. I'm just asking, guys, before you storm the Bastille, what's next? And there is this there's this amazing dialog that happened. I'm trying to remember what New York City liberal was, but it was the Black Panthers. I think I think I had you on once and we talked about this. So the Black Panthers came to some sort of white liberal cocktail soiree and all the white liberals were like fawning over them, the Black Panthers, best thing ever. And some brave soul, you know, listens to the speech and the Black Panthers say, we're going to burn it all down. We're going to do this. And somebody asked the question, they said, but but what next? And the Black Panther responds, he says, well, you can't know everything, man. It's like, OK, hold on a second. Like, let's climb up, like let's I get the anger. I understand it. But here's let me just read some of these emails here, because, again, I have received thousands of very nasty messages, not even because I'm saying we shouldn't be doing this. I'm saying that this has probably not been thought through, like just what the one, two, three, four is. Right. So I'll read one of these emails here. Right. Charlie, the time has come to burn it all down. They're all the same. It can't get any worse than what we have. What is your response to that, Kurt? That's about the stupidest thing I've ever heard. And I think we need to sugarcoating it with our people. OK, I've been in the ruins of a civil war. It gets a lot worse. We have problems here, you know, and I find it interesting that guys like you and I, who no one is going to mistake for a squish unless they are actively stupid or think the listener is actively stupid, are saying, wait a minute, stop it. We need a plan. We need a direction. We need to figure out what the heck we're going to do. And it can't just be, well, let's just see what happens. Let's toss this guy out with no idea who follows. You know what's going to happen? A bunch of Republican squishes, the same one the base is infuriated at, are going to get together with a bunch of Democrats and they're going to put in a squish Republican speaker like they got down in Texas, the same kind of creep who was behind impeaching Ken Paxton. And then they're going to go, I can't believe it. You know, I keep thinking of that meme, the guy riding on his bike and he's saying, dang, these Republicans, they're screwing everything up. He sticks some between the tusks, folks in his wheel. He raps, he goes, oh, they're really annoying. Look what they did to me. The anger is understandable. And yes. And but so some I could read I could read, by the way, the audience is ninety nine percent in the direction of vacate storm, the best deal, take the head and all that. But let's let's just go through a fact, which is that the people that will be voting for motion to vacate, you know, they say they've been live to him betrayed and I'm going to take their word at it. Right. I'm not there. They are. I'm not going to. But they will they will vote with that. They will vote for every Democrat. So is it correct, Kurt, to say that this is a gift to the Democrat Party? Well, the Democrats sure think so. Democrats are excited about this. Every single Democrat wouldn't be voting for this thing if they didn't think it was good for the Democrats. That hold on, hold on. You know, that sounds obvious, but time out, time out. Say that again, because that that that that's not Barry the lead. OK, hold on. I want you to repeat what you just said. Say it again. Every single Democrat would not be voting for this if every single Democrat did not think this was good for the Democrats and bad for us. That sounds so obvious, but because the Democrats never vote against their own interest ever. No, no, they don't know about their political party interest, not the interest of their constituents, of their power. No, I look I think you're right. And I, you know, I'm. I understand people are frustrated. Grow up. We have a four seat majority of one house of the Congress. OK, there are a bunch of reasons why that's true. Many of them the fault of our own party and our own choices and actions. But that's where we are. You know, I can't believe why isn't he decreeing blah, blah, blah. Because, you know, maybe you should have paid more attention that that Schoolhouse Rock. I'm just a bill thing because it's it doesn't work like that. We have got to make incremental movements. We are not going to make this is this is not going to be a giant sweeping cavalry charge. This is going to be bayonet fighting inch by inch. And sometimes you're going to lose ground. Sometimes the bad guys score points. The goal is to move forward, but you never move forward by losing. I don't want to make any broad proclamations, but we will. It looks like we're not going to have the House next year. I'm just going to tell you right now it was this is not making it more likely for most of our audience doesn't care. And they're telling us and that's not what they will. But they will. Once they abolish the Electoral College, I'm going to get a lot of e -mails. Yeah. Well, I can't believe I'm doing this. Well, believe it. And you thought it was a great idea. No, I would rather not be in the I told you so mode. I know I get it out. I know when when Washington, D .C. becomes a state, I don't want to have to replay this segment. I don't. Yeah, exactly. Guys, think. I just want to make sure everyone's clear. I share the anger. I share the volcanic eruption against the unit party. Let's be smart. Let's ask ourselves, is there any downside to letting our emotions govern our behavior?

Fresh "Mcconnell" from Bloomberg Daybreak Asia
"10 minutes. We begin right now by updating a few of the hour's top business stories. And now that Kevin McCarthy has been removed from his post as House Speaker, we've got a number of questions looming. Among them, what happens when a stopgap spending measure runs out on November the 17th? We heard from Bloomberg's Kaley Lyons. The government funding that was agreed to in the continuing resolution of last weekend that led to McCarthy's downfall in place the first only extends to that date. And the issue is right now we have paralysis in the House. Really, the only thing that pro temp Patrick McHenry can't preside over is a speaker vote. He That is Bloomberg's Kaley Lyons and the House is going to have a vote on a new speaker on October 11th. the We got some information today on the American labor market. The payroll services company, P. Said that U. S. Companies added the fewest numbers of jobs since the beginning of 2021 during the month of September and pay growth slowed. Now today's data increased bets that maybe Fed the can refrain from further rate hikes. We heard earlier today from former Fed Vice Chair Richard Clarida. The dots at the September meeting had 12 of the 19 participants indicating one more hike. I'm less of that view now. I think given that, as I said, the bond market can do some of the the Fed's job for it. You know, if even some of this recent increase where to stick, I think the Fed trade could well be done. That is Richard Clarida, the former Fed Vice Chairman. By the way, the market is pricing in about a 20 % chance of a rate hike in November, maybe a little below that around 18 % and that would be down from roughly 30 % previously. For Several Taiwan tech firms are helping Huawei with China chip plants. Bloomberg's Bonnie Au has all from Hong Kong. Topco Scientific and Sika Hunt Tech are among some of the tech firms identified by Bloomberg. our investigation shows they're building infrastructure for a network of chip plants across southern China. The collaboration Thank you for your attention. Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you you Thank Thank you Thank US Senate where leaders are talking about starting work on funding for Ukraine. Let's get to Ed Baxter. He has global news from the Bloomberg Newsroom ready. Yeah. And they're getting a huge nudge from President Biden that saying Biden is out saying that the aid going is imperative. Bloomberg's Nancy Lyons has the story. President Biden is urging members of Congress to work together to address the needs of Ukraine. The majority of the American people still support Ukraine and the majority of the members of Congress both Democrat and Republican supported. So I don't think we should let them gamesmanship get in the way. With concerns mounting over the reliability of U .S. funding leaders from almost 50 European countries will try to show unity in support of Ukraine when they gather later this week in Spain. In Washington, Nancy Lyons, it's Bloomberg Radio. And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says that he feels a spirit of I'm sorry, Chuck Schumer's a majority leader, feels a spirit of cooperation in the chamber. There's strong bipartisan majorities in both the House and Senate for aid to Ukraine. I've spoken to Leader McConnell. We're going to work together to get a big package done. Meanwhile, McConnell also focused on House speakership today. I hope whoever emerges insists on getting rid of the motion to vacate. Yeah, and so far Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan have jumped in the water and the man who seems to hold a lot of power in that arena. Matt Gaetz, exclusively on Bloomberg's Balance of Power, says he could support either, but he's looking at issues. So here's what we need no matter who's the speaker. We need a top -line budget that at least the House of Representatives returns to pre -COVID spending levels, and then we need to be able to have single subject spending bills with open amendments to have programmatic review of agency spending. And the vote is scheduled for a week from today. Donald Trump left the courtroom of a civil suit for fraud today after a gag order was slapped on him. That for social media posts and things that he said regarding Attorney General Letitia James, she calls them racist and dangerous. And I will not sit idly by allow anyone to subvert the law. And lastly, I will not be bullied. And so Mr. Trump is no longer here. The Donald Trump show is over. This was nothing more than a political stunt. And Trump on his way out complaining about the fact he doesn't have a jury trial. We're not entitled to a jury because if I had a jury, even though it's in New York, and I think I keep on with New York, but if a I had jury, we'd win this case very easily. But I don't have a jury. Now, the fact is neither side asked for a jury. They were entitled to do that. Trump, when asked why he was there in the first place, said he was doing it for the media. Flash floods in India have swept away dozens of people, a cloudburst, disrupted electricity supply at the test of the hydropower station and swept away 23 soldiers as well.

A highlight from 1274. Shutdown Delayed, Uptober Begins | Crypto Market Outlook
"All right, so here we are. It is October, October. You get the message here. We're going to dive into that today and find out if Bitcoin and some of these great crypto assets are actually on the move or we're going to get a correction here. We'll break it all down for you guys today. My name is Paul Bearer and welcome back in to Tech Path. All right, let's jump into it. Before we get started, let's go over to iTrust Capital. If you guys are looking at doing some long -term holding on your crypto assets, one of the ways you can do it is through a crypto IRA. So check it out right here, itrustcapital .com. It's the number one crypto IRA platform in America right now, $7 billion in transactions, 200 ,000 accounts created. Definitely, they are killing it over there. Use our link down below. It's going to give you a $100 funding reward. And of course, we get a little help from iTrust to help you guys continue to see this content for free. So that's one of the ways you can help us out. All right, let's get into a couple of the notes today and really kind of talk about where and what has been happening over the weekend. Obviously, Bitcoin's been up. Most of the top 20 have been up. And for the most part, we've even seen some of the Web3 projects also get some good positive action. So what's causing that? Obviously, the biggest issue was the, I guess, the scenario that played out right now over the weekend where we actually came to an agreement, somewhat of an agreement, to not shut the government down, which is always helpful. Kobe Easey comes in and says, breaking Senate vote approved the short -term funding bill to keep the U .S. government open till November 17th. Not bad, 45 days away. This bill includes $16 billion in disaster funding and keeps the U .S. government open for 45 more days. The U .S. government is seeing a new crisis every month now. What's going to happen in 45? I think that's the big question right now everybody's asking is, do we see maybe the month of October as our correction month? And then we have to kind of go into a realization that we're back to where we started. Love to get you guys' feedback on that. What do you think is going to happen here in the month of October? Drop some comments down below. Make sure and smash the like button because it does help us get into the algorithms and help other people kind of explore what's happening in the market. Let's listen to what Mr. Chuck Schumer had to say about this. Let's play this clip for you guys. It's been a day full of twists and turns, but the American people can breathe a sigh of relief. There will be no government shutdown. Democrats have said from the start that the only solution for avoiding a shutdown is bipartisanship. And we're glad that Speaker McCarthy has finally heeded our message. In the end, more Democrats supported this bill in the House than Republicans, proving bipartisanship was the best answer all along. I want to thank my colleagues here in the Senate, especially our appropriators, yourself, Madam President Susan Collins and Leader McConnell. Our bipartisan work in the Senate set the tone for the bill we're about to pass. Our bipartisanship made this possible and showed the House that they had to act. All right. So you saw a couple of things here with Schumer, and that is the whole scenario around the bipartisan approach. A lot of Dems had to come into play on this. Obviously, the Republicans were the ones that were seemingly holding a lot of this back. Now you even have Gaetz really pushing hard against McCarthy, trying to dispose him as the speaker. There's a lot happening there, and it's going to continue to push forward into next month when all of this has to go right back to the drawing board and redo this. So this could get a little up and down. And especially I'm concerned with November because of the scenarios that we will see in both the jobs numbers, the Q4 will start to play out in the sense that we'll start to see what's happening in the markets itself. And it could be a very bad timing for this to occur again. So hopefully this all gets corrected and playing into it. Let's listen to what Squawk Box had to say about this and the impact it might have on the markets. Listen in. Joining us now is Jared Bernstein. He is the chair of the President's Council of Economic Advisers. And Jared, let's talk about this. We have a deal that nobody really expected we'd see. So we made it through this weekend. But what happens in the next 45 days? Well, first of all, good to see you, Becky. This is good news for the American people in the sense that an unnecessary crisis that would have inflicted pretty deep and wholly unnecessary pain on millions of Americans has been averted. That's good news for over 1 million active duty troops, for over 7 million women and kids who risked lacking nutritional support for travelers because of the reauthorization in this bill of the FAA and disaster relief that was also in this continuing resolution. But it did not have to happen. I think what you just played from the president is, of course, exactly right. He shook hands. He had a deal. In fact, there was a law passed with McCarthy back in in June, in early June at the end of the debt ceiling debate that was designed specifically to avoid this Senate. All right. So, you know, they kind of take doing their victory lap, even though I think it's a little bit premature. But the point is, is that there was a huge economic disaster that was averted. So I think that's the positive news. Obviously, the markets responded in such ways that have helped adjust for that as well. But that's not necessarily all of it. We've also seen some other implications coming across from external resources out there in the markets that have caused a little bit of this movement. I think the question everybody's asking now is, is Bitcoin going to continue higher or are we going to start to see Ethereum start to adjust now? Do we see some of the projects like Solana, Avalanche, etc. start to really fly? We'll break into all of those. So don't miss those. We'll look at some charts for you guys as well. I want to go over to a couple of stories here. Why Bitcoin prices up today? A couple of points that were hit on here. US shut down a version, obviously, and also the ETF launches. Now, that is the opportunity. Because remember, Ethereum ETF launches today. And the other idea around this is that when you look at not only the Bitcoin opportunity for ETFs, by the way, if you're not following our market sentiment indicator, you guys should because we are tracking both the Bitcoin and the ETF, the spot ETF sentiment as a whole. It's interesting to see that sentiment kind of go up and down. But the point that they're hitting on in this article is that October is historically one of Bitcoin's best months and is often called October, named in today's video. Bitcoin's October overall. You can kind of see the rundown right there. That green line right there, as you can kind of see where I'm waving my cursor, almost all green over the years going all the way back to 2013. So not bad. Nearly 43 million worth of shorts were liquidated. That's another scenario that plays into that. And of course, I think when you look at the general move with what Bitcoin had to do, I think this is going to be an interesting week ahead of us. Now, there's a lot more that could be happening this week that could still maintain Bitcoin around the $27K to $28K range. That will be a very, very interesting thing to watch because if Bitcoin starts to edge toward around $28K, this is where it's going to get interesting for the future. All right. A couple of things I want to hit on. Right here is Ben Cowen talking about lucky number seven. First green September for Bitcoin in seven years. That's a good sign. But is it a short -lived sign? That's, I think, is really the scenario that plays into this. Sellers have lost momentum. Buyers are now in charge. Target is near the top of the range right now. If it breaks this range that we've been talking about, which I'll show you the chart here in a second, that Bitcoin has been moving to. If you look at just here on the daily, right there is that little high right there around $25 .73 and a little bit. And then, of course, the red candle started to point its way down on the hourly on Bitcoin's move over the last $24. So interesting moves for sure. How are you guys playing this? Is this a zone? Because this has been up and down on the sentiment charts for us. We still see sentiment somewhat waffling with Bitcoin. Not necessarily as much with Ethereum, but definitely with Bitcoin. But the real question is can we hold around this $28K mark, which is where we're hovering right about now. All right. Other things. China's central bank continues to stimulate. So reverse repo injections now at levels not seen since 2020. This is another factor that plays into it. China is starting to inject liquidity. This, of course, causes movements in the markets. It also causes some ripples in the markets as well, because I think China is going to be one that we have to continue to be cautious about in the sense of awareness of what's happening in China, both from a real estate standpoint, but also just from their GDP and their economic growth. Those are the other things that play into this. A couple of reports from Chain Analysis that are kind of interesting here. I thought this would be larger, and it's not. But right now, eastern Asia, fifth most active crypto market accounting for 8 .8 % of global crypto activity. And this is July 22 through June 23. So it kind of gives you a little bit of insight to that. Point is that you do have a significant amount of the market that is in control. Remember, the United States still has a large percentage of what is happening around the world in crypto markets, ironically, without legislation. Can you imagine what is going to happen with legislation and institutional adoption really kind of playing forward? That's where it's going to get super. I think that's when we're going to start to see some big market moves overall.
Fresh update on "mcconnell" discussed on Mark Levin
"And in too many cases acquiesces and contributes to them, the Republican party fails in its most important mission, to defend the American people from a Democrat party that literally hates the country and is destroying it from within. And unlike the Democrat party, the Republican establishment would rather betray its own base, conservatives, and try to marginalize it than battle the Democrat party, preferring to make appeals to the Democrat party media and demonstrate their bipartisan common sense in pursuit of temporary political power and positive media coverage. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, the likes of Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Chris Sununu, Asa Hutchinson, and Chris Christie are but a few temporary examples of this defeatist mindset. It is also one reason why they and Republicans like them constantly target Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and others who understand the nature of the threat and are willing to confront it. It takes Uncommon 42 principles and foresight to recognize and engage the Democrat party, its surrogates, and American Marxist movements, and it goes on. But Mark, these eight, they had Uncommon Fortitude, no they didn't, they're saboteurs. The House Republicans, with the tiniest of majorities, have been making very good progress, very good progress.

A highlight from Republican Debates, Election Predictions, and Media Criticism
"At some point we have to take the economy seriously. We can't just keep printing money and sending it overseas. Welcome to another Financial Guys podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick along with my partner, Mike Speraza. We are always excited to be here, Mike. Um, we are here after the second Bill's win. Yeah. Yeah. We will, we'll keep it at that. Every time we talk very little, things go well. So let's, let's keep it at a win and big game Sunday. Miami. What should be right. A massively popular game. I mean, when they put up 70 against Denver and we, we basically, did we shut out the three points? Three, three. Okay. We held, held Washington, the Washington commanders to only three. That should be a really, really dynamite game. So. Had to change their name due to political correctness. I know, I know. And we had some conversation about that. The people I was watching the game with were reflecting on, I guess the good old days when the, the nicknames of teams just didn't seem to matter as much, but it matters now. Now they want to take down statues. You're an Iroquois guy. They're taking that name away. The chiefs because apparently saying chiefs is very, uh, politically incorrect. I mean, a leader. You can't be called the leaders anymore. Maybe it'll be the Iroquois comrades because everyone's got to just hold hands and sing Kumbaya. Yeah. And, and you know, nobody gets a gender anymore. Nobody can dominate one or the other. Even if it's a sport, there really might not even ever be winners or losers. They might not even keep score anymore in sports. Like it's just going to be for the experience of it trophy for the trophy for the trophy. Line them all up. They're all going to look exactly the same. There'll be gender neutral trophies. When will we have a they, them team name? Like the, the Washington they, thems, like when, when, I mean, I know that sounds outrageous, but that's where we're headed. Yeah, it's true. It's going to be comrades. Friends. Yeah. The friends, the Iroquois friends, the Iroquois comrades. It literally is heading that way though. Something where you go, what is, what is this sport? Like we don't even know based on the name, what the sport is. We don't even, yeah. You won't know. Like usually you could derive some more information from things like that. Oh, no, no, not anymore. No, you're going to have to dig real deep. You're going to have to show up at these events and, uh, you know, maybe wear a nice hoodie and a pair of shorts at the events. Yeah, I agree with you. And, uh, you know, maybe right after you went through the Senate chambers to vote on something, you can head and do a game with your hoodie and shorts on. Anyway, the next one, the last thing I'll say is the next one will be the Patriots. They'll be getting their name taken because that represents Donald Trump and his movement. We got to take away the name Patriot, right? That'll be the next one. There you go. You know, I just, I can't with these people anymore. It's really getting to be absurd. Yep. Totally. So, uh, Mike, let's start with this one. A second Republican debate coming this Wednesday night, September 27th, and Dana Perino, who I've always enjoyed listening to. Um, she will be joining Stuart Varney and Ilia Calderon at the Ronald Reagan library. presidential Suitable place. I love it. Yeah. And, uh, I, we were just chatting a bit before the podcast, so let's just line this up. All right. I don't know the order, but we're going to have Pence, Christie, DeSantis, Rama, Swami, uh, Doug Burgum made it Dougie Dougie. Um, who is that? Who else? I'm I've got five Nikki Haley. Thank you. And then, uh, there should be one more. Um, I did pens from, let's write this down. One more time for everybody. Pence, Rama, Swami, right? DeSantis. How do I not remember? Tim Scott, Tim Scott. Thank you. So, so seven this time, um, not Asa Hutchinson, I think you said he, he didn't make it. Didn't qualify. So, um, of course the big elephant in the room is that Donald Trump again will not be there. Just tell me your thoughts, I guess, on this next upcoming debate. Are we going to hear anything different? Is there any going to be anything that really makes people go, Whoa, this guy's really racing to the front or female. Um, if it's Nikki Haley, anyone going to race to the front after this one? I really, I mean, I think we're kind of wasting our time here and I'm not saying it as a, as a Trump voter. I'm just saying it realistically. Right. I mean, at this point, the lead is 40 to 50 points. Nobody makes up that ground than a debate, right? Like Nikki Haley had a great debate last time. She's still polling single digits. Right. I don't agree with Nikki Haley stance on a lot of things, but she, she fared well in that debate and she really didn't grow or fall behind anymore. Right. So I think that's the tough part. When we look at these debates, the Donald Trump in the 2015, 2016 campaign years, that is your like unicorn, right? Where, where you just go up there and go bananas. And then you end up, you know, taking over the field. The difference was there was no Donald Trump in that election, right? Like you had a Jeb Bush, but he wasn't the guaranteed slam dunk candidate right now. You have Donald Trump, Mike, and he is the guaranteed slammed on Canada. The only one that we thought maybe had a chance was Ron DeSantis and he has crumbled mightily, whether you like him or hate him. It's just the facts. He's, he's in trouble. Right. I mean, so what, what are we accomplishing with these debates other than kind of a, I guess I'll say wasting our time. Yeah. And I, I just, I just think it's worth breaking this down a little bit. Like what is it that people like you and I think that these others are just inferior to a guy like a Donald Trump? Like, and I'll tell you my opinion first. Mine is I just don't think they'll win. And I just feel like more and more people need to, you got to vote and expect that the conservative Republican candidate in this case wins. And I don't think any of these other people could, could actually win. I don't think they have enough, you know, experience. They don't have the fortitude that a Donald Trump has. Well, I think that that to me is, is there's two reasons why I'm voting for Donald Trump, right? Number one was I thought he had a very good four year term other than the COVID 19 issue. And I, I'm telling you right now, I say this to people all the time. If it was Ron DeSantis, if it was Donald Trump, if it was Hillary Clinton, that, that, that whole debacle was, was a disaster and there was no way you were going to look good in that debacle. I'm just telling you. Yeah. Number one, but that was a Trump fault that I have. And if I ever talked to him, I would tell him that that I do not agree with what he did with COVID. It's easy for me to say that now, but, but at the end of the day, he had a great four year term other than that, in my personal opinion. Number two is every time they've tried to knock him down at the knees, Mike, that has made me want him back more, right? The, the every time they indict him, I want him back more, right? Every time they try and silence him with gag orders, I want him back more. This is how I think a lot of conservatives are feeling. And at this point, it's kind of like, okay, is Rhonda, here's what my other point, I don't mean to keep going on, but at the end of the day is whether it's Ron, DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, or Donald Trump, I'm going to use those three for a second. They will be treated the exact same way by the media, by the Democrat party. It doesn't matter who that candidate is. It doesn't matter. Right. People always say like, Oh, but, but Trump's hated. If DeSantis is a candidate, he's already taken crap from the leftist media, right? Like if he's the candidate, he's going to, it's going to be open up another can of worms. I don't think it matters. The reason why we got to go with Donald Trump is he's been there. He's been able to handle it. We know that whether you like him or not, he's handled the media and he's handled the Democrats well. And we need that experience. This is the election of our lifetime. And I will say that now, this is the election of our lifetime. We need to win. Dana Perino says, I believe the economy will feature prominently because we know that that is the biggest concern and preoccupation that is worrying Americans. And she says in many ways, in my opinion, the economy is the thread that runs through all of these other possible topics. For example, if you're concerned about crime, one of the issues is what kind of resources do you have and are you willing to use in order to help deal with that? I think she's spot on. I think when it comes to the economy, the economy sort of is the fuel and whether you then have a notion to, you know, actually shut down the border, improve childcare, improve education, then the, the economy obviously is the main thread that actually everything else seems to branch off of. If you have a lot of people working, for instance, you're going to have a thriving economy because supply and demand is going to balance out. You're going to have lots of products and services to offer and a lot of people can afford these things. Right. So, uh, I, I agree with her. Plus it is Fox business that's hosting the event. So might lean a little bit more toward economics. Yeah, I think it should. I agree with you. I mean, at some point we have to take the economy seriously. We can't just keep printing money and sending it overseas at some point, you know, and I say, I've said this to you, Mike before, going to get groceries now at times, like they ring all the stuff up and I'm like, Holy crap. I bought, I have a cat. I bought five cans of cat food. They're, they're the size of like a lacrosse ball, not even. And it's like $5 for five cans. I'm like this, this thing costs more than my kids at this point. This cat's going to be very thin. It's going to be out of crash diet. I mean, but seriously, how do people, Mike, that don't make money? And I say this in a sad way, like how do people that don't make money survive? Even going, you go to a local fast food restaurant for two people. My wife and I it's 30 bucks. I'm like, what the hell happened out here? I told that is what's going on. And that's scary. Yeah. When they have to make those kinds of hard choices. Right. Uh, all right. So, uh, let's move on. So speaking of Trump, we're talking about these other seven candidates that will be there Wednesday, this Wednesday night, nine to 11 PM in the second Republican debate, Donald Trump will not be there, but this came out like in a Washington post poll. Trump is now up 10%, uh, over a potential run against Biden, 10 % double digit. Now if you just pin Trump against Biden again, first your thoughts, and then we'll go a little deeper into this. Well, I'm not surprised. Um, I think, I think Americans are getting sick and tired of it. I think Americans are worried about our futures. I think the migrant crisis is hurting the Democrat party because you have liberal places like New York city that are waking up saying, Oh my God, we can't do this anymore. And there's like 10 ,000 migrants in New York city, not 10 million. Right. So like, like it's starting to click, I think with certain people, number one, number two, Mike, I think it's hard to hide Joe Biden's cognitive decline, right? The left can say whatever they want in the media. You just can't, when you fall over on things, when you do talk like that, I mean, they, it's a problem. It's a real problem and it's visible. Um, do I trust these polls? Yes and no. I think, if I think America is as smart as I think they would, the polls should be probably higher, like 30 % lead for Trump. Um, but I think the numbers that keep growing in Trump's favor, the margin of error is not that big, right? Michael, like you look at the Republican primary polls, the margin of error is not 40%, right? He's up 40%. So even if they're off by 20%, he's still up 20%. The same thing's starting to happen in these head to head polls with Biden. It started, you know, Trump down, then it was Trump even, then it was Trump three, five, now it's 10. I mean, that's a lot. Yeah. And so I want to read a little bit here. So the post ABC poll shows Biden trailing Trump by 10 percentage points at this early stage in the election cycle. This is, by the way, the Washington Post little write -up, uh, after the poll was done. Um, so this is, this is actually humorous. Although the sizable margin of Trump's lead in this survey is significantly at odds with other public polls that show the general election contest to virtual dead heat, the difference between this poll and others as well as the unusual makeup of Trump's and Biden's coalitions in the survey. So Mike, the more words, the muddier this all gets, right? It sounds like excuses coming up, right? It sounds like Kamala Harris. It really is. It's like, yeah, total word salad. Um, I just said suggested is probably an outlier, right? So, so this, this I thought was interesting. Um, Byron Byron York of the Washington examiner said the post dumped on headline news in quotes from its own poll. So basically they do a poll. They say that their poll is likely an outlier and, and he, he goes on to then say Washington Post sub heads suggests its own poll may be an outlier. That may be true, but they put no such disclaimer in headline three years ago when they published a poll of Wisconsin, right before election day in 2020, showing Biden up 17 points on Trump, 10 points more than the average of other polls at the time. That was real clear politics, president Tom Bevin. So, so funny to me, so interesting, right? Even when they try to do something where they want to take part in the polling process and inform all of us as Americans, Ooh, that's not really where we wanted to see that. That's likely an outlier folks. Yeah. Oh, Donald Trump's winning. Shit. That doesn't count. Okay. What are we going to do? Next one. Okay. These were registered voters. What are we going to do? This is 10 points. Holy shit. What are we going to say? Let's just say it's an outlier. Oh damn. That was a fake poll. Oh, those stupid polls. Yeah. I mean, and it might, I'll say this before we get onto another topic on what's, what's, you're starting to see it all come together. It's like, it's like when they see, you know, hurricanes forming in the ocean, right? We're starting to see it now. The polls are shifting to Trump. Now we have Hillary Clinton coming out saying things like, Oh yeah, who's to say Putin won't medal in the election in 2024 again, right? You have others saying like, Ooh, we got to get Trump off the ballot or people saying, let's indict Trump again for this or that let's put gag orders on him. It's all coming together. Now the new thing too, Mike is, Hmm, let's indict the Bidens and let's see if we can get, we can get a Joe Biden off the ticket. We've used him, we've abused him. Now we're getting them out of here. It's all, it's that wave in the ocean. It's that hurricane forming in the ocean. That's what's happening. And I believe that because why, why would Hillary Clinton come out and say, if you're so confident right in the 2024 election, if you're so confident and Trump's an idiot, he's never going to make it again and get rid of them. Why are you now saying, Hmm, maybe Putin will medal in the elections again. Why would you say that? Right. Right. And by the way, this is the same guy that's richer than ever because his country has been able to sell oil at a high rate since Biden's been in office. This is the same country that has had its way with the Ukraine walking in there and taking over land since Biden's been in there. Why would, why would Putin medal in the election to get in and probably in his mind, the nut job of Donald Trump back in office, it may drop a nuke on him. Why would he want Trump back in office? Ask yourself that question. Don't have to, if you have any sense at all, then you don't even have to ask that. Um, so anyway, let's see what the next number of polls start to reveal. Let's see if, let's see if polls stop coming out, Mike, right? Because once you have one that's got Trump winning by double digit, maybe they just start to say, polls are stupid. Polls are for racists. You're homophobic. If you read polls, I mean, we'll see. Or they come out with some poll from the middle of nowhere. That's like Biden up 35 points on Donald Trump. Right, right. This was from registered voters in the white house. Yes. We interviewed seven people and it was six to one, six to one. And the other one we fired, we don't even know who that was. Yeah. So, so let's go to this now. Every once in a while, Mike, I have to do this CNN, right? I go to the cnn .com site. I just got to see what they're finding note newsworthy, noteworthy, whatever you want to say. And honestly, and I've often reported this, I'm often in disbelief at what they aren't reporting. In this example though, I was like, Oh, a few stories down. Here's a story, Mike, why more women are choosing not to have kids. So right away I'm thinking, Oh my gosh, these are the most unlikable people, the most anti traditional family structure people ever. They probably don't want to have a relationship at all. They don't want to ever have true, you know, intimacy with anybody cause they just can't do it. They're just nasty. They're mostly on, you know, just awful. These lots, so many of these people. So I go on to read a little bit of this and you know, this is, this is someone named Diana Volek who, who never, who was never someone who dreamed of becoming a mother, right? And these are just some of the reasons given. They don't want the responsibility of being a parent. They fear a lack of support. They like their life as it is. They're still judged for being child free. So so even when they don't choose to have children, right? So I'm like looking at this and then suddenly I go, wait a second. This was published at midnight, uh, basically Sunday or Monday, you know, September 25th. That's that's now as we record editor's note, this story was originally published in August, 2021. Some details such as the ages of those interviewed remain the same as they were when the story first published. So you're telling me right away, I thought, is the Hollywood writers strike? Is it bleeding into CNN now? Cause there aren't enough stories. There aren't enough people to write like modern stories. There's not enough news. They had to pull a story from two years ago to talk about why many women are deciding not to have kids. Like how pathetic is that? How pathetic. This new trend too, of like, it's cool to just say, screw it. I don't want to have a family is the weirdest thing ever. And then we wonder why these people are miserable, right? I mean, again, is parenting easy? I'm a new parent. Mike, you know that you, you parented two girls for, you know, they're what? 25, 22, right? So you've had, you've had 25 years of parenting experience. I've had, you know, almost a year. It's the most enjoyable thing ever. Right? I mean you're finally, it's good not to be selfish. It's good to take care of somebody else and love somebody else. Right. And I'm not saying you don't love your spouse, but your spouse is an adult relationship. You have to have a relationship with a baby, which turns into a toddler, which turns into an adolescent, a young adult like that. There's nothing more special than that. You should want that. Instead it's like, Oh, kids are stupid. I'm going to be so rich. Really weigh me down. Yeah, yeah, sure. Okay. They're going to weigh me down. I want my independence. I don't want to be responsible to another human being. I've got myself to worry about and treat and, and you know, I don't know, a door like I get like, that's fine. I want to see the next story though be why many women are deciding that having a child is rewarding. It can become a very loving, you know, yes, you have to be responsible. Like it just was so gross to me like that. And two years ago, this isn't even news. This is like, Oh my gosh, we got to fill these headlines. What do we get out? Pull that one again. We don't like kids. We don't want anyone, you know, raising children, my God for, you know, I'll say this though, Mike and all seriousness too. Like, yes. Is, is it fun being a college degenerate and booze and all the time and having a blast? Sure it is. We all did it right. I mean, yes, of course it's a fun thing. Is it fun to not care if you can go to bed at 2am or 5am or 5pm? Sure. That's great. But at some point you have to mature as an adult, take your job seriously, take your family seriously and care about things like I always say this, Mike, and this is something I've brought up a million times. Think about being, you know, if you want it, like if you didn't want to have kids, I'm not saying people that can't have kids cause I feel for them. But if you, if you didn't want children, cause you didn't want the responsibility, what do you do in your sixties and seventies with no family? Like that breaks my heart, honestly. Right? Like I, what my relationship with my parents, my wife's with her parents, like it's, it's fun, right? It's, you're a family. You get to do things together and you get to enjoy each other. Who doesn't want that? I just don't get it. Well, there's a lot of people in Washington that actually have spouses and children and grandchildren. And clearly there is not a lot of love and support going on between all of them. Because some of these people, I mean, we know who we're talking about, the Mitch McConnell's, the Joe Biden's, they would not be in front of microphones if people actually cared about them. They would not let those loved ones go through what they go through on a daily basis, unless they have no connection, no personal connection at all. Um, all right. AOC. She's almost the last story of our day, but there's one more after this. So we got a bonus. We do a bonus story here, breaking news. So AOC wins the hypocrisy award mic for this, uh, at least this week, maybe the year on this one decade, this is hilarious. And, um, I'll just set this up for a second. So here she was on CBS's face the nation. And, um, she was discussing president Biden's plan to visit the Michigan auto workers on Tuesday. So host of CBS's face, the nation, Margaret Brennan points out a couple of interesting facts about AOC and her selection of vehicles. So let's go ahead and play that. Yup.
Fresh update on "mcconnell" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"WTOP newsroom Morgan State University is canceling all classes and other school activities for the remainder of the week in the wake of that mass shooting on campus last night. The university also says it's postponing the homecoming football game and the 39th annual homecoming gala. All other homecoming activities including the homecoming concert, parade and pep rally they have been cancelled. Five people between the ages of 18 and 22 were hurt in last night's shooting. It happened after a homecoming event at the Murphy Fine Arts Center. Police say they believe it was the result of a dispute between two groups, not a mass shooting by one individual. The search for suspects continues. Keep it latest on Capitol Hill where the Republican race is on to become the next Speaker of the House. Two prominent lawmakers announced they are in the running. That's House Majority Leader Steve Scalise and House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan. Joining us live from Capitol Hill, WTOP's Mitchell Miller. Mitch, how is this race shaping up the just day after the historic ouster of Kevin McCarthy? Well Sean, Majority Leader Scalise and Jordan are the clear front -runners right now at least. The lawmakers here for the most part are generally holding off on saying who they are going to support. Steve Scalise has been battling cancer but says his treatments have been working well and in a letter to GOP lawmakers he referred to his recovery after getting shot during a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria six years ago. He calls the Republican conference his family and says they really helped with his recovery. For his part, Jordan is seen as an effective communicator who rose through the ranks to chair the Judiciary Committee. Both men have lots of supporters so we'll see what happens. Others getting mentioned include GOP conference chair Elise Stefanik and Oklahoma Congressman Kevin Hearn who chairs the largest caucus of Republicans. Lawmakers have a big meeting planned next Tuesday then hope to consider a new speaker possibly next Wednesday. And also So today the Senate's top Republican, Senator Mitch McConnell, weighed in on what's been going on in the House. about What did he say it? Right, Nick McConnell has praised for Kevin McCarthy and his efforts to avoid the government shutdown, likely cost him his job and McConnell says he has no advice for House Republicans except for one thing. I hope whoever the next speaker is gets rid of the motion to vacate. I think it makes the speaker's impossible. job That was of course the motion used by Florida Republican Matt Gates to oust McCarthy. By the way, some Republicans are talking about booting Gates out of the Republican conference for what he did. Not of a lot love lost here among many Republicans. Also Mitch, we understand that some prominent Democrats have been kicked of out their capital offices in the wake of this Republican checkup. What's the latest on that? Well, some this is nitty -gritty politics, but it points to the bitterness over what's happened this week. Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a hideaway office in the Capitol that I walk past every day, and former House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer also has these one of small offices in the Capitol. The Republican leadership has forced both of them out of those offices, and apparently Kevin McCarthy will get the office that was being used by former Speaker Pelosi. CNN is reporting McCarthy that was apparently behind this decision. Democrats believe it's retaliation for House Democrats siding with eight Republicans to kick out McCarthy. WTOP's Mitchell Miller on Capitol quick look at the top stories we're following 40 on WTOP President Biden Biden is canceling an additional $9 billion in student loan debt.

A highlight from Operation Atlantic Resolve
"Well then, welcome to the Dennis Prager Show. Bob France sitting in and yeah, you hear the music, you know where I'm coming to you from. Cleveland, Ohio, the home base, therelieffactor .com studios if you will. Our WHK radio, AM1420, the answer here in Cleveland, Ohio. An honor to be sitting in for Dennis once again. And of course today being Yom Kippur, which is why Dennis is off today. As he has of course been celebrating the holy days and starting back with Rosh Hashanah. The Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. And it's a wonderful thing. It really is. I kind of have to familiarize myself not being Jewish myself. I have to familiarize myself with some of the days and some of the reasons and the explanations for the calendar. And Yom Kippur is one of the ones that to me is the most solemn. A Day of Atonement, a day of reflection and looking inside and asking for forgiveness for the shortcomings that perhaps we have and so forth. And so to Dennis and to everyone who is commemorating and or celebrating and or taking part in participating in the Yom Kippur day today. This very important Day of Atonement. God's blessings to you all. Seriously, really appreciate that. In the meantime, we've got work to do. We have a lot of very important things to talk about and I want you to be a part of the show. 8 Prager776, that's 877 -243 -7776. I want to know, is it acceptable for me to be concerned with the plight of others but being unwilling to do any more than I have already done? And yes, if you're wondering, I'm talking about Ukraine. Yes, if you're wondering, I'm talking about the 113 billion dollars we have already sent to Ukraine to help them ward off the invasion of the Soviet, well, the Russians. Who are trying to rebuild the Soviet empire, I suppose, if you think that they are going to not stop in Ukraine and then advance to other European nations and so forth. I don't think so. I don't think they have the ability to do that any longer. I don't think they are the fearsome foe they were when the Soviet bloc was, of course, raining havoc on Eastern Europe and raining havoc on the world. But I want to talk about the Ukrainian situation. Here's two reasons. Two reasons why. The first of which is the fact that in Canada, over the weekend in front of the Canadian Parliament, the Lord Mayor Zelensky, the President of Ukraine, who came to the United States for the second time, hat in hand, saying please drop all you can into the hat here so that we can go back and continue our war with Russia. They came looking for more money, asking for another 25 billion dollars. And again, I'll get to the point about how I feel about spending that money and how I feel about it going forward in a moment, but he came to the United States and then he went up to Canada. And he went up to Canada before the Canadian Parliament and he sat there and he asked for support and financial remunerations from the Canadians as well. And the Canadians, of course, listened happily. And, you know, we're all all for supporting this. But what they did after that is something that is quite simply incomprehensible to me. Canadian organizations Jewish are among those now slamming the Canadian Parliament for giving voice to and a standing ovation to a man who fought for the Nazis during World War II. All because he is Ukrainian. All because he's Ukrainian. Video and photos show the Canadian Parliament erupting into cheers on Friday after President Zelensky's visit to the capital of Ottawa, when Canadian lawmakers also honored Yaroslav Hunka, a 98 -year -old Ukrainian immigrant who fought for the 1st Ukrainian Division, according to the Toronto Star, the division also known as the Waffen -SS Galicia Division, which fought for the Nazis and its paramilitary arm. The Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center said in a statement, the fact that a veteran who served in a Nazi military unit was invited to... And by the way, this story that I'm starting with, this day, this first hour, this story is not because of today being the Jewish Day of Atonement. This is outrageous. This is when it happened is when it happened. Understand that. The fact that it is occurring, though that we're talking about this and it just happened during these holy days, is another point entirely. The fact that a veteran who served in a Nazi military unit was invited to and given a standing ovation in Parliament is shocking. At a time of rising anti -Semitism and Holocaust distortion, it's incredibly disturbing to see Canada's Parliament rise to applaud an individual who was a member of a unit in the Waffen -SS, a Nazi military branch responsible for the murder of Jews and others, and that was declared a criminal organization during the Nuremberg Trials. Some are calling for full -throated apologies from Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau and from Ukrainian President Zelensky. This honor was given to a Ukrainian because everything now has to go Ukraine's way, because Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine. We have to come up with untold, unlimited amounts of treasure and time for anything having to do with Ukraine. So they brought a Nazi military fighter, 98 -year -old Nazi fighter in World War II before the Canadian Parliament, and because he's Ukrainian, he got a standing ovation. That's how, beside ourselves, I think we've become with this, we have to do anything and everything we can to help Ukraine. So that's number one. The second reason, by the way, is we continue to try to make some sense out of the, you know, now that we have the actual official figures confirmed by the White House of $113 billion already spent in support of Ukraine. In addition to that, they say that our commitment to helping Ukraine has no end and there is no cost limit. They will do this no matter what the cost for however long it takes. The problem is, of course, there is no end game in sight. There's no end to the commitment that has been identified. When does it end? What standard would it be to say no matter how long it takes to finish the thought? Chuck Schumer? Joe Biden? Mitch McConnell? I don't care if you're Democrat or Republican. If you are giving an unended blank check, an unending blank check to Ukraine, what does that mean? What does that look like? You say for as long as it takes to... fill in the blank. What? Does every Russian in Ukraine have to retreat back across the border or is that not enough? Does every Russian have to leave Crimea, the peninsula that Russia took in 2014 when Obama was president? Or do they just have to stop bombing and stop the fighting? What exactly does it mean to say we're going to give this money until... or I'm sorry, no matter how long it takes to do what? Define the end game. There isn't one.
Fresh update on "mcconnell" discussed on The Dan Bongino Show
"All the shenanigans we've been seeing over the last few weeks, not just yesterday. We had this disastrous CR And of course a motion to vacate the speaker's chair yesterday. A lot going on. This has been a nasty political couple of weeks. As the US Senator from Utah, our good friend Mike Lee. Senator, thanks for joining the show. We appreciate it. Thank you, Dan. It's always good to be on the show with you. Yeah, it's always good talking to you. You can translate a lot of the mechanics of what's going on up there for me. I know, obviously, you're on the Senate side. What happened yesterday was on the House side. But you know, you guys share the complex together. You guys know each other. So your general thoughts on what happened yesterday? I think you kind of know where I stand. I think, unfortunately, a lot of this gets lost in the personalities, which we need to scrap. We need to focus on throwing the conservative football down the field, not necessarily the hairstyle of whoever's throwing it. So your thoughts on what happened yesterday? I couldn't agree more, and especially as one who recently has ceased to have a hairstyle. I don't think it should be based on that. It definitely shouldn't be based on personalities. We need to govern as elected officials who are conservatives on the basis of conservative principles, not personalities. And to that end, it's important anytime people want to make decisions to focus on the policies themselves and on what they want to accomplish. And it's the prerogatives members of in the House when they decide that a change is what they want to move things forward. Not everybody agreed with them, but it's still their prerogative. And it's a prerogative that really arose out of a feeling that things have worked the same way in Washington for far too long. That the top leaders in both houses of Congress, Republican and Democrat, collude together year after year after year to produce the same failed pattern that predictably results in omnibus spending bills crammed down members throats at the end of December, shortly before Christmas, under the sort of threat of a shutdown. This is wrong. And I think it was some of those concerns that animated those who moved to vacate the chair yesterday. You're so right. We're talking to Senator Mike Lee. You know, you and I have kind of discussed this before that I think the scope gets so lost in like, well, hate I this guy and this guy's a sellout and this guy wants to be on Fox and this dude's got hair and this dude is he, you know, he just cares about lobbyists that we actually forget about what matters. And I think the Republican caucus, one of our failures that has been just mammoth in is size we have this general failure to read the room and you just summed it up. This effort yesterday, Senator, would have failed completely and fallen on its face if Republicans just in the last 30 years would have said like, no, we're drawing a red line. We're not agreeing to governing by omnibus and CR anymore. Regular orders there for a reason. This is no way to Run world's the most prosperous democracy. And we're not doing it. If we had done this, people would have been like, Yeah, OK, we can trust these guys. They've done it before, but they didn't read the room. We've been getting screwed over since the this is just a symptom of it. They didn't read the room. They didn't read our room with our people, our voters voters who showed up to get every one of these guys elected. And you're right. This could have turned out differently. Had things moved forward differently in the last 30 years or 10 years or five years or even the last, I don't know, 90 days. because in that circumstance, had they read the room, our room, the conservative room better for setting aside the conservative room, just the room of hardworking Americans who would like to to believe that our spending bills, the spending decisions, our decision to adopt a $2 trillion annual deficit, adding to our already $33 trillion debt, that those decisions are made deliberately and not written in secret by what I call the law firm of Schumer, McConnell, McCarthy, and Jeffries. We'll have to rename it now, setting the penultimate name. But had there been any sense that there was any effort to depart from that and that members weren't going to get hoodwinked into voting for something bad again, this would have turned out very, very differently. So I don't think any of this should be about personalities. I don't think it was about personalities yesterday. It was about wanting a different, a better process, and more importantly, a better outcome. Yeah. By the way, I really appreciate your use of the word penultimate, one of my favorites. You're a very educated man. That's what I always liked about you. I have a theory that never hang around with stupid people. Always be the dumbest guy in the room. because if you're the dumbest guy in the room, you'll always leave smarter. Never, ever go into a room being the smartest guy. That's why That's I why like to hang around with you. But on the Senate side, I want to dig into something too, because you've got your own issues over there. Senator McConnell's been in charge for a really long time, and you've got your own issues on the Senate side. We seem to be arguing on the Senate side, which you're experienced with more over Ukraine funding than a real border. And Senator, I get it. I'm not a simple minded guy. I've traveled to almost 40 countries around the world and spoken with militaries and security folks in all of them. World's a complicated place. I get it. But the United States is a complicated place too. And I get we can walk and chew gum, but I'm not willing to shut down the government over Ukraine funding. I'm sorry. story. And yet it seems Mitch McConnell and a lot of swampies over there on your side are obsessed with Ukraine Ukraine over the priorities of the United States, causing us damage in the process. Yeah, there's a ubiquitous obsession in Congress with Ukraine funding. Now, look, I, they're I feel they're polite and I know they're in a tough spot. I don't like and I'm not a fan of Russia. Nonetheless, none of those things mean that this is our war to fight either their directly or through a proxy. We have moreover sent $113 billion to Ukraine already just in the last year or so alone. And so, meanwhile, our NATO allies in Europe, in whose back door all of this is taking place have not ponied up nearly to the same degree. There's no reason why we should continue to fight this war as if it were ours. It's not, especially considering that Russia has nuclear weapons and it has a lot of nuclear weapons. That doesn't mean that under no circumstances do we go to a war against that nation. But we ought to go into it with a clear mind that that's what we've been doing. We've been going into a war, albeit a war through proxy. We have to tread very, very carefully. And under no circumstances should we turn a blind eye to our $33 trillion debt that the law firm currently wants to extend to the tune of an additional $2 trillion for the next fiscal year, simply so we can make sure that we enter into this proxy war even further without any additional commitment from our European allies. This makes no sense. It also makes no sense that we have no plan to achieve peace there. We have no military strategy that's been ever outlined, not by the president, not by the Pentagon, not anyone. So my response to all of that about more Ukraine funding is thanks, but no thanks. We're talking to Senator Mike Lee from Utah, one of the good guys. And I might say maybe the only politician I know has never let me down. And I want to be clear, me and the senator don't agree on everything. He's never lied to me. That's saying a lot because every other politician, local and federal, has and the only one. Senator, let me ask you a practical question because I've been recommending to my audience that they reach out respectfully to their congressman or representative today and say, listen, you know, we'll be watching this vote and we want a conservative speaker. You're a man. You've been in politics a little while. You were part of the Tea Party Revolution. You stuck to your guns on that. You know, being on the inside, can you please just reaffirm me having run, but you having won? This stuff matters. If you get a thousand emails from constituents in a day that you
Rep. McCarthy Frustrated After GOP Hardliners Push for a Shutdown
"A significant increase in securing the southern border and the northern border. And you turn that down, when 214 of your colleagues, including the vast majority, overwhelming majority conservatives, including the Freedom Caucus, are all in? What's your game None. plan? You don't shut down the government with no game plan. Because you know what happens then? Somebody else comes up with a game plan. Like the in Democrats the House, yanking a few of these Republican reprobates over and getting their budget passed. And you already have McConnell and the majority Republican senators who have sold out to Schumer and Biden. So you don't shut down the government. So, when you have this tiny majority and you have a plan that's put forth that slashes the government at the domestic level bigger than any plan that I've ever seen anybody from and seeks to secure the southern border, why would you throw that away? And if the Senate isn't going to support and fight over that, then you have something concrete, something tangible to fight over. and spending major steps towards the securing the border, defending the military spending, defending that's a winner to me as a conservative.

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust. Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is one of my favorite senators and just a terrific guy. Senator Lee Mike joins us. Senator, thank you for taking the time. Senator, you have a very powerful thread on Twitter that I want to speak with you about. You have this idea of the law firm Schumer McConnell McCarthy and Jeffries, the firm as you call it, that does deals in the the middle of the night and back room deals. Walk us through all this, Senator. I think it's fascinating and very important. Senator Mike Lee. Yeah, thanks for inviting me to talk about it. This is a thread that I posted on the Twitter presence that I use for my own personal musings is my at -based Mike Lee account and on that I explained how this four -person cabal within Congress, what I call up the law firm of Schumer McConnell McCarthy and Jeffries, comes together and whichever four fit in those positions, the top Republican and Democrat from the House and in the Senate, over the last decade or so they've gotten more and more powerful and they've taken it upon themselves very often to be intimately involved in the drafting of spending bills. In many cases consolidating all spending bills, there's supposed to be 12 separate bills each running a different part of government, these guys will put one together. We call that an omnibus and very often the omnibus or whatever bill they're putting together will be held back into the last possible moment until a couple of days and sometimes only hours before government funding is about to run out. Then they bring it forward to their respective caucuses, House, Senate, Republican, Democrat and say here you go, here's the bill, it's ready to go. We unfortunately don't have much time to read it, we unfortunately don't have really any time to debate it, we have almost no time left to amend it, so you basically have to take it as is and vote yes or you can vote no, but if you vote no you'll be blamed for a shutdown and we'll make sure of it. So most members vote for it. It usually has the nasty effect of unifying Democrats, nearly all Democrats jump on board because it almost always spends more money than it did last year and it peels off just enough Republicans to get it to pass and so this is how we end up 33 trillion dollars in debt. This is how it happens because of the action of the law firm and the unflinching response of far too many Republicans to say yeah I'll jump on board with that even though we're unifying Democrats, pursuing Democratic priorities for the most part and we're sharply dividing Republicans. So let's tie this into the 930 fight and you're right, what they do is they kind of hold these votes hostage that have some necessary components, funding the military, things of that nature, and then they just always you know they always will say well you know it's the lesser of two evils, we want to keep the government open. So tie this into the 930 funding fight and specifically the timing and the sequence of this omnibus as you write quote was carefully orchestrated by the firm but ensures that it will pass without any substantive changes once it becomes public and the very few elected federal lawmakers will have meaningful input in this highly secretive process. This is so dysfunctional, Senator. Walk us through how this is going to unfold in the next couple of weeks.
Rep. Chip Roy: How Are We Going to Fund the Government?
"To be on the floor this week and we don't have full agreement here's why because there's a block of conservatives in the in the house who are saying one we to need hold down our spending levels but two importantly we've got to use the power of the purse to force change out of the Biden administration we've got a border that's out of control we've got a DOJ that's out of control and weaponized against the president of the united states average american citizens and atf that's trying to turn out of gun owners we've got a department of defense that's woke it's more concerned about social engineering than the first mission to defend the country so we're trying to force change through the spending and process that's what's at stake right now and look some of us are just saying guys we're not going break we're going to hold the line and say that we've got to get changes out of the senate and the president and that's what's currently being debated as we speak what are the republicans in the senate they're useless utterly I mean look the house is having the debate that needs to be we don't always agree on it but we're having the debate that needs to be had the senate is being utterly useless other a than handful of champions they're obviously led by mike lee um who are trying to do the right thing are already pre -capitulating mitch mcconnell is trashing tommy tuppertill for daring to stare up stand up for life and holding up these nominations at d -o -d uh and he's already trying to preemptively surrender on the spending fight so the senate is not helping we're trying to hold the senate accountable and say guys we're gonna keep fighting in the house um and you know what mark you and i lived through 10 years ago when ted i was cruz's chief of staff to fight over Obamacare and i've had some of my
A highlight from Impeachment Inquiry Launched Into Joe Biden!
"Why doesn't Mitch McConnell want to make things difficult for the Democrats? Why does Mitch McConnell say that impeaching Joe Biden after the level of corruption and the lies and the disastrous reign of this president has been exposed for all the world to see? Why do you suppose Mitch McConnell thinks it's a bad idea to begin impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden? I honestly don't get it. Maybe you do. Now, thankfully, he's trying to hedge his comments a little bit. He gave an interview to The New York Times that I think it's bad for the country. Think it's bad for the country. Here he was on Fox News Channel, a little bit of a back and forth with reporters. This was covered on Fox News. Here is Senator Mitch McConnell being asked about Kevin McCarthy's announcement yesterday that the House Republicans will begin impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden. There's cut seven. We believe it was a good idea for Speaker McCarthy to open that inquiry to the president today. The impeachment inquiry? The impeachment inquiry? Do you support it? Do you support that as a good idea? I'm sorry. I couldn't hear you. The impeachment inquiry? The impeachment inquiry that Speaker McCarthy opened announced the president's items. Yeah, look, I'm going to say it again. And I don't think that Speaker McCarthy needs any advice from the Senate on how to run the House. OK. He's on record as saying it's not a great idea. He's on record as believing that it's bad for America. I like fighters. I like people. If Trump has symbolized anything whatsoever, it's that Americans demand a fighting spirit from our elected representatives, period. That's it. Is Mitch McConnell, who is agreeing with the Democrats that it's a bad idea to impeach Joe Biden. Do you have a theory as to what his problem is? I'm just going to turn it over to you. We also have some breaking news. The escaped killer, that escaped prisoner, after two weeks on the run, has been captured in the state of Pennsylvania. So the country can breathe a sigh of relief. A very dangerous criminal is behind bars again. So a little update on that news as we welcome you into the Relief Factor studios for a Wednesday I just have a simple question for you. Why does Mitch McConnell agree with the Democrats that it's a bad idea to begin impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden? 1 -800 -655 -MIKE they impeached Trump twice. And they'll believe me, they'll try again if he wins. So we're supposed to roll over and let the Democrats essentially, you know, have their way with us. You go ahead and do whatever you want to us. We won't fight back against you. Let's dive into this. And I want you to swamp my phone lines, flood my phone lines.

A highlight from Ask Charlie Anything 159: Limousine Liberal Poverty Simulation? Call It Quits, McConnell?
"Many of you know I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago in Wheeling, Illinois, despite how the media has tried so very hard to say, Charlie, you grew up in a very lily white upbringing. No, actually, I didn't. I grew up in Wheeling, Illinois, working class area. In fact, I was a minority in my own high school. I remember once there was one of these I reporters that said this to. They did not believe me. It was a political reporter. It's before Andrew started working with us, and I said, yeah, I was a minority in my own high school. He literally refused to believe it, and he pulled up the stats like, oh, wow, Wheeling High School, 58 % Hispanic, 58 % English as a second language. This is one of the reasons why I find all this race politics so repulsive. I don't care about your skin color. I grew up around people, all different backgrounds, and I'm unafraid to talk about race. So many white people are afraid to talk about race. I'm so afraid. I don't care because I grew up around people, all different racial backgrounds, and I know that race is not really a relevant characteristic in valuing a person, not important. And I find anyone that says that to be repulsive. So anyway, grew up in Wheeling, Illinois, and know anything about Wheeling, working class, great folks, great upbringing.

A highlight from Whats My Line?
"There are people in this country who work hard every day, not for fame or fortune do they strive, but the fruits of their labor are worth more than their pay. Portions of the following program may contain pre -recorded material. You are listening to the best of the Dennis Prager Show. Hello my friends, it's Labor Day and I'm laboring. Dennis Prager here my and tradition on Labor Day is to ask you about your labor, your work, what do you do for a living, and I have been just fascinated by your ways of making a living. We don't realize, none of us realize, because we all live in a small world. It's impossible not to. You know X number of people, you have X number of relatives, and that's pretty much it. Now we don't live in a small world intellectually or philosophically and the like, but we do in so it comes as a fascinating surprise and it's quintessentially American the ways in which Americans make a buck. So what I do on Labor Day is I invite you to call in and tell me what you do and it could be absolutely prosaic. It doesn't mean you drill for oil in Tunisia. It doesn't have to be exotic. If you are in a profession or a line of work which many others are in, that's fine. First of all, I love to talk to people, which I would think would be a fairly common characteristic among talk show hosts, but it isn't. It isn't, interestingly. Off the air, a lot of these guys are quite introverted and are not people -people. It's not an attack at all, just a personality. But I am a people -person. I'm a people -person. And I love to talk to people. I talk to people, as you know, I've told you, in elevators, anywhere. And so I love to ask people about their work. 1 -8 Prager 776, which translates digitally into... Translates digitally into... This is the official one on LesWatt? Yes. Oh, really? He prefers... My prefers producer this to... Oh, I see. Well, they're both good. I don't know if I have a preference. Isn't there even a third? There are several. There are several. No, no, no. I understand that. I understand, but there's no reason not to use them. So dear Francesca Morris, who has volunteered her time to work on this Labor Day along with the Induplicable McConnell, Sean whose name is spelled... That was composed by yours truly, incidentally. There are areas where I just don't like to boast, but that is one I am really proud of. That is the only piece of music I have ever composed. I didn't orchestrate it, I didn't sing it, but I composed it. So what do you do for a living? It's Labor Day, and it's an appropriate question to ask, and I have a lot of fun. So do you. Are you listening? And it is, among other things you will see, an ode to America. Because unless crushed, the spirit of people, and this would be true anywhere. It's a values issue. It's not a DNA issue. There's no American DNA. And so unless crushed, which is what happens in the vast majority of the countries of the world, people just will do whatever they do. All right, so let's begin with Ambler, Pennsylvania, and Hugh. Hello, Hugh. Dennis Prager. Welcome on Labor Day. Hello, Dennis. Happy Labor Day to you, and I'm very thrilled that I'm number one on the list today. Thank you. Well, that is something. That is something. But I was just going to... I work in a grocery store, okay? A supermarket, if you will. I work for Whole Foods Markets, and I work in the store in North Wales, Pennsylvania. Right. I'll say hello when I'm in Philly. Oh, very good. I know you come here often. Yep. And I'm a baker. I work as a baker there. I go in early in the morning. What time? I usually get there around 4 30 a .m. Go on and wait. So Whole Foods, which I've been to many times, but I didn't realize... So the bakery bakes what? Well, we do actual scratch baking in the bakery. We take items. We don't just open boxes and bake the stuff. It's made from scratch. And what's the stuff you bake? Breads? Well, we do breads, but mostly we do cakes and pastries and what you would find in a neighborhood retail bakery. I thought... Maybe I have it confused with another store chain, but doesn't Whole Foods tend... Exactly. See, that's it. Yes. But the nice thing about me, I'm a fourth generation baker. Wow. Okay. I'm 59 years old, so I've been doing this since I was 10 years old with my father. And what the nice thing is about working with Whole Foods is the ingredients I get to work with. Like, we use only real butter. We don't use any of the artificial short means or anything. It's all real... Let alone God forbid margarine. They got God forbid margarine. I got two, two, two. So that's one of the nice things about it. But I know like little retail bakeries, they can't afford to use ingredients like that. But at Whole Foods, we can and we still do. And that's why people say, well... All right. Now it's my turn to ask you some questions. First, about the hours. So if you report to Whole Foods at 4 .30, what time do you get up? Oh, I get up around 3 a .m. And what time is your work day over? I usually work till about 1 o 'clock in the afternoon. Okay. All right. So hold on. Wait. So you come home and you take a nap? Take a little nap. I usually... When I'm napping, I have you on the radio by being... You know, that's very sweet. So either I help you nap or I don't help you nap. No, but I get to listen to you every day because I usually leave like around 1 o 'clock. That's nice. really No, no, it is really nice. So what time do you go to sleep? Well, I try to get to bed by at least 9. It doesn't always work that way. Right. Especially with the Republican convention, I was really struggling. Right. And I thought, why don't we get the big speeches like at 10 .30 at night on the East Coast? I was like amazed by that. Well, they have to do that. Both parties have to do that.

Police are on the lookout for a dangerous convict who escaped from prison. A manhunt is underway for a killer on the loose in Pennsylvania. Authorities say 34 year old Danilo Cavalcante escaped from Chester County Prison Thursday morning, just 15 days after he was sentenced to life behind bars. They are not releasing any information as to how he escaped. Cavalcante was convicted of stabbing his ex girlfriend 38 times and is considered extremely dangerous. Authorities believe he may be heading to Mexico and are offering a $10 ,000 reward for information leading to his capture. Ron DeSantis says he doesn't plan on meeting with President Biden when he comes to survey hurricane damage in Florida. On Friday, Biden announced he will travel to Florida over the weekend to meet with Governor DeSantis and see the destruction caused by Adalia.

DeSantis is currently seeking the 2024 Republican presidential nomination and is said to have been in regular contact with Biden to coordinate the response to the storm.

But then let me introduce Jon Fetterman into this conversation. Now. Whom among that group appears to be the most capable of the bunch? And I know, I mean, it's a really depressing exercise, isn't it?

This is obviously not our country's finest hour. This is like a real conversation. And that one of those four is leading the country. Which part of the larger point I'm about to get to.

A highlight from How Bitcoin is Quietly Taking Over the World | EP 814
"Yo, welcome to another episode of simply Bitcoin live or number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution. We cover breaking news culture, medical warfare. We will be your guide through the separation of money and state shout out to my legendary cohost and brother for holding it down these last couple of days, uh, go, it was going through, uh, some, some personal stuff. Um, and what I got to say about that is cherish the ones you love. Um, you know, you're, sometimes you're not going to spend, uh, that's what I got to say. Cherish the ones you love, appreciate them while they're still around. And, uh, and yeah. Um, but anyways, today's going to be a great show. Uh, we're going to cover the topic. Bitcoin is taking over the world. It really, really is. Um, it was just announced it actually, we covered this initially, uh, when it was dropped on Forbes, the article is Oman's bold Bitcoin play $1 .1 billion investment on Bitcoin mining infrastructure. We covered this during the bit block boom episode. That episode was a little, a little interesting because we were backstage and we had to talk in like golf voices and stuff. But the reason that this is so big, and we're going to dive into the details of this, the significance of this, because it is very, very significant. Is that gonna make the minute? I'm going to make the case for you guys that Bitcoin's incentives stay winning. Bitcoin's incentives are quietly taking over the world. Uh, this isn't, this isn't just had, this didn't just happen in Oman. It was a couple of months ago where we were, we covered it for you guys. Also an article from Forbes. The headline is the kingdom of Bhutan has been quietly mining Bitcoin for years, right? So you have, and this is the case that we were making. We made this when this initial news came out of Bhutan, we were trying to tell you guys like, look, this will most likely happen in other countries. Boom. It just happened in another country. And why is that? Why Bitcoin, right? Well, because Bitcoin monetizes, it gives stranded energy value, right? Nothing in the world does that. Bitcoin does that. So countries that perhaps they didn't care about Bitcoin, uh, in Oman, it's just a, it's a heavily Muslim country. You can even say it wasn't, uh, it wasn't appropriate for them to use a currency like Bitcoin. Well, they changed their minds on that, right? And this is a testament to show Bitcoin's incentives and how you can't resist them. Um, and also there's this post by Jimmy Song. I'm going to see if I could pull it up, but he was basically covering the news, uh, coming out of, of black rock. And a lot of people were, were a little bit worried that black rock was going to kind of infect Bitcoin and all that. And I never forget this quote from Max Kaiser and the quote was basically like, you don't change Bitcoin, Bitcoin changes you. And, and, and I really think that's true. Right. Um, and I think it, you know, it was originally sourced in the Satoshi white paper, um, or maybe it was a Satoshi white paper, but it went something like this, right? You're more incentivized to play by Bitcoin's rules than you are to try to cheat it. Right. So when you see these countries getting excited, when you see these countries wanting to partake, wanting to benefit from, you know, number go up technology and these crazy incentives, um, you know, the question that I have, the, the, the, the statement that I have for you guys, you know, it's not governments, uh, it's not governments that are going to try to fix Bitcoin or try to co -opt Bitcoin. It's Bitcoin that is going to co -opt governments. And that is because it is a system of aligned incentives and it is a system that rewards you more by playing by the rules than by trying to cheat the system. Um, and I think that this is a phenomenon that's going to be very strange to people because you're used to a lot of these, you know, huge container institutions or these huge countries that have these massive, uh, governments, these massive bureaucracies doing bad by their people. But I wouldn't say that it's necessarily because these are evil people and they're twirling their mustaches and they're scheming and they're saying like, ha ha ha. Uh, like, you know, like we're gonna, we're gonna do it, we're gonna do like these bad things and you know, we're gonna screw these people. We're gonna enslave people. What I think you're seeing is the result of a broken architecture of, of the broken architecture that is Fiat, the misalignment of incentives that is Fiat. Uh, so when we say fix the money, fix the world, I do not think that's a, that's a, that's an overstatement. I really believe that because I think that if you fix the base layer, if you fix the incentive structure of the world where everyone can win, um, you start incentivizing good behavior. And I think you've seen this in El Salvador. I do not think it's a coincidence. I'm sticking by my word and I know I got a lot of flack on this, but I've talked to Jimmy song about this. I talked to Max Kaiser about this when we were at bit block boom and I'm sticking by it. I do not think it's a coincidence that in the first country that made Bitcoin legal tender, the elected official is actually doing the job of which he was elected to do. And my case, my theory for that is because you have a society where the incentives are now aligned. You have a society where the base layer is now based on truth. It's not based on lies like it is in Fiat. And I think that all the evils that a lot of people will interpret it as evil that you're seeing out of the world economic forum are like, I like to call it the container conference or, you know, a lot of these, uh, these, uh, people call it the deep state. I call it the administrative state because it's right up in your grill these days. Uh, these actions that are, they seem counterintuitive like, and we're going to play you a video of, of Mitch McConnell in a second during the number segment where, you know, they're sending billions of dollars to fund wars, but then there's homeless people on the streets in their countries. I don't think that's because these people are inherently evil. They're just incentivized to do that. Why? Because of Fiat and like, think about it. If you're a politician, you get elected, what are you incentivized to do? Are you incentivized to do good by your constituents? No, you're incentivized to get as close as humanly possible to the money spigot. If you fix the money, right? If you, if you have a sound money society and politicians don't have this elite privilege of being able to create money for free that everyone else has to work for, what is their only other mechanism of raising money or staying employed? They have to go directly to their constituents and say, listen, I have an idea. I'm going to raise taxes in order to pay for this.

I think they're, I think they're worried about the no labels thing. I think I listened to Joe Lieberman the other day on something. It sounds to me like they're serious about getting a third, trying to get a third party that only helps Trump for sure. Oh yeah. And so does RFK Jr. Um, they got to still deal with him, you know, but I tell you, I've seen some of the polling out of the individual States on the democratic side, like Illinois RFK is like at 6% Biden's at like 80. I mean, I'm not sure how much of a, um, I saw, I saw one poll that had RFK at 20%. You're saying nationally. Yeah. Nationally. Yeah. I'm talking about the individual States. I'm just saying where, where some of where he is in some of the individual States, I don't know. Does the audience think that Biden gets replaced? Is everybody a hundred percent in that camp? You know what? And, and if you want to throw a little extra, um, sprinkles on that, that ice cream and who is to say Michelle Obama would do better than Biden, by the way, who knows anything about her, where her positions are and she has no experience. So there's that, um, yeah, I'm not, I'm not in that camp yet, but you want to throw, like I said, a little sprinkles on that, that Joe Biden ice cream, uh, remember what Greg Kelly said about that, that tape. So he could be, as he said, it would make him virtually impossible to run for president again. You'd have to cancel his campaign. So I want the audience to give me their list. You could go one, two, three of, of, of Biden. If Biden gets the, uh, the hook, when, what order do you think that they, who do they turn to? What's your top? What's your second? Give me one and two. We'll see how many we get. Let's see who we get. One and two. Who's your one and two replacement. If Biden ends up getting the hook, which I don't think he gets the hook. So that would be my position. You guys think he does get the hook and you think Obama's one? I think, uh, I think at the last second when she doesn't have to worry about running in the primary, they will try and sneak her in. Yeah. Because if she has to run in the primary, I think too much comes out about Barack and their relationship and his time in the white house. Because let's face it, the biggest, uh, the, the, the president who, who claimed there were, there were, there was no impropriety in my entire administration for eight years. We're seeing just, uh, we're starting to scratch the surface of all the corruption that was happening under the Biden administration. If he can't keep an eye on his vice president, he can't keep an eye on anything. Okay. I see a lot of, I see, I see some Killery and then Obama. I see some Obama and Newsome. I see a lot of Obama Newsome. Uh, I see a Joe Manchin, Obama and Whitmer, um, oh my gosh, that's a good one. My chat froze up, so I don't know if it's going too fast or what, but you know what? I wouldn't be surprised if they ran a Feinstein and McConnell. Well, that's a no brainer. What about Kamala? They're not going to run Kamala? Kamala's out, huh? Yeah. Yeah. Well, what else is going on in the news? He's a no brainer as well. We'll have to see. All right. Um, let's see. Which, uh, what story was I'm up to? Oh my goodness. I'm jumping around like a lunatic here. Uh, okay. Here we go. Biden administration. Get ready. Zelensky. Uh, he needs money. Why? Because, well, if you want to have an election, he needs $5 billion according to a Ukrainian president Vladimir Zelensky responding to calls by a U.S. Senator this week to announce that they're going to have elections in 2024. He said on Sunday voting could take place during war times if partners, partner who's a Ukrainian partner. Oh, that's right. We are, um, shared the cost legislators approved and everyone got to the polls. Elections cannot currently be held in Ukraine because they are under martial law and, uh, which would be extended every 90 days and his next due to expire November 15th after the normal date of October for para, uh, parliamentary polls.

So let's get a tell a television interview, uh, said that he had discussed the issue with Graham, including the question of funding and needed to change the law. So he would like to change the law and he needs more American dollars so they can have an election in Ukraine. If you think that sounds on the up and up, let me tell you what else Lindsey Graham was involved. Someone just said jinging ping and Zolinski or they're number one, I'm seeing some good ones now.

"So when you see the judge yesterday and you read Julie Kelly and you look at the transcript, she put the entire transcript out today of what the judge said in the courtroom yesterday, some of which is, I mean, just head shakingly bias. This is why they want they want to be there first. This is again, I compare it to the new Gingrich phone call. I am sure I would bet the farm that there has been a phone call like that regarding this situation. This is what has to happen. This is what we need to do. And this is the time frame we have to do it. That's it. End of story. And they're going to do whatever they have to to do it. And the judge is going to rule the roost. And every single motion that she's going to rule on, you're going to see what's going to happen. This is what. This is what concerns me. When people say, well, I'll never get to that. I hope you're right. I hope you're right. Because to me, the game plan is very clear. They go to the most left wing bombastic judge they could find Obama appointed, who's already proving herself to be a bomb thrower. What she said in that courtroom, read the transcript, go to Julie Kelly's sub stack. She said, instead of me interpreting this, this is what she basically said today in her article. She said, you know what? I was going to try to interpret this and put a big article out. I could never do it justice. So why don't you just read the transcript yourself? And then she went to scribe and basically just posted the whole thing word for word what the judge said, her comparisons to the 9-11 terrorists, her her scolding of the Trump judges saying, well, you need all this time to go 12 million documents to look at the job that the government has done. I'm so impressed with what they've done. I mean, how can this not be clear to anybody what the, what, what, what's going on here? Yeah. And the crazy part is when you hear people go, well, you know, a speedy trial, speedy trial, speedy trial, speedy trial is for the defendant. You dopes, anybody who's out there touting, well, it's gotta be a speedy trial. That's the defendant has a right to a speedy trial. Learn what you're talking about first. And most times, almost every time, according to the numbers, the defendants waive that right to a speedy trial. Why? Because they want this delayed as long as possible to get as much evidence as they can that could, that could show them to come up as a not guilty. So anybody sitting there going, oh, speedy trials, doesn't know what they're talking about. It's not, it's not for the judge and the prosecutor to say, we need a speedy trial on this. That is a protection for the defendant. All right. Quick hour one, hour two coming up right after this live from studio six B on a Wednesday night. We'll be right back. Yeah. People were, people were surprised when they saw this announcement today only because they didn't know he was running. He was, they had no idea that he was running. So when they saw him bowing out, they were more surprised that they didn't realize he was actually running. So the only thing I've seen about him is that he started running and that he stopped running and pretty much nothing in between. Exactly. So I also finished up saying, while I've decided to suspend my campaign for president, he concluded my commitment to making this a better nation for every American remains. Okay. Well, that's a good thing to say. Yeah. We can all get behind that. And, um, this guy is like 2 million times better than Mitch McConnell. He's uh, sure. And his face works. Okay. So, okay.

So this is a far reaching little group he's got here to close down any cases against the owner of allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma. But don't worry, Joe. Joe knew nothing. I'll just start you right now by telling you that at the top of this article, Joe knew nothing about this. Don't worry. And gain intelligence on the country's top prosecutor's office. The emails bolster claims by ex Ukrainian prosecutor general Viktor Shokin that the first son and his then vice president dad, that would be Joe Biden, conspired to kill Shokin's criminal investigation of Burisma. You mean JBF where? RFK where? JBR, whatever. And Robert Peter or Peter Parker or Peter Parker or something like that. Last weekend, Fox News broadcast the interview with Shokin where he repeated his allegations that Joe Biden got him fired over his Burisma probe. And the tapes are out there. He's talked about getting the guy fired. Only went on film and talked about this. Emails obtained by Daily Mail from Hunter's abandoned laptop lay bare how the first son was involved in Burisma's attempt to thwart law enforcement looking into its into its alleged corruption. So there it is. Hunter Biden is also now, I guess, involved in obstruction of justice. On May 12th of 2014, the day before the Hunter Biden one million per year appointment to the Burisma board was publicly announced. Executive Badam Poscharski emailed the then VP's son from his personal Gmail account warning that the firm's owner, Michaela, I don't even know how to say that, Zykovsky is the last name of the guy, was likely under criminal investigation in Ukraine. Mikola. Yeah. Me too. Emails obtained by DailyMail.com show Hunter Biden helped devise a plan to shut down the investigation into Burisma in 2014. The email wrote, we urgently need your advice on how you could use your influence to convey a message, signal, you know, something that Devin Archer mentioned, to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions, Poscharski wrote. The Burisma executive said the company was a victim of blackmail. In case we don't cooperate, provide money and cash, the gas production business of Zaleski would be stopped, he wrote. After unsuccessful attempts to receive funds from our side, they proceeded with concrete actions. Hunter got a partner at his then business firm, Boyes, Schiller and Flexner to devise a response for Burisma and also pitched in with advice on gaining intelligence on the new staff at the prosecutor general's office under investigative agency, Nardello and company. So basically Hunter Biden is throwing his political weight and his law weight around to investigate the prosecutor's office in another country. But no, don't worry. He's a private citizen. He doesn't work for this country. Agreed. That's part of what their human intel sources are seeking to learn. Heather King, who's a partner over at Boyes said a senior U.S. diplomat in Ukraine testified to Congress that a deputy in Ukraine's prosecutor's office told him Zaleski ended up paying a seven million dollar bribe to Ukrainian justice officials in December 2014 to sabotage the U.S. UK probe. So there you have it. More emails. It's the gift that keeps on giving, Damon. I tell you this, this, this laptop from hell. Yeah. And in this article, if you want to go check it out on our social media, they have the initial email from Hunter to Devin Archer on May 12th, where Paul Zarski claims that Burisma was a victim of blackmail. And then he urgently requested advice on how Hunter and business partner, Devin Archer could use their influence to convey a message. And it's all in here. June 19th, 2014 shows Hunter enlisted the help of a partner at its then firm Boyes, Schiller and Flexner. So they've got all the receipts in here, all these emails. And then there's of course, there's a picture of Hunter and Joe there because, you know, Joe didn't know anything. Yeah, of course. And what's funny is that I'm reading this article, right. And I get to the part and it's a long article where it says, Hunter hooked Burisma up with Washington, D.C. consultant, the Blue Star Strategies, run by former Clinton administration officials. And Fazarki spelled out their role in a 2015 email, said the ultimate purpose of their work was to close down any cases, pursuits against Zolchevsky in Ukraine. And then I keep seeing Blue Star written and it just it makes me think of the movie Wall Street. Remember Wall Street? Yes. What is it? Blue Horseshoe loves Endicott Steel. That was like that was like the you know, they had their little their little code thing that they that, OK, you pick it up the phone, you call the guys at Blue Horseshoe loves Endicott Steel. And then that was that was a signal to buy or to sell or whatever they were doing. I forget. I forget exactly. But that's exactly what it reminds me of this. It's these guys have and again, they're talking about peddling influence. Use your use your influence to get this thing all taken down. If we only had a media that had any interest in doing their job as they have more information here to look into with this than they ever had on anything dealing with the Trump administration in Russia. And look at what they did there. And you can't get them to sniff this, any of it, or even look at it for anything. They have no it's like it's like kryptonite. They won't touch any of it. Meanwhile, it's all sitting out there. This is why, of course, you despise the media right.

I spoke to our friends over at early treatment meds and uh, yes, they're getting out of the um, ivermectin that business because it's, it's just too, there's just too much government red tape and just too many things they can't do and just everybody's up there. You know what, all the time about it. So uh, we're moving back to seven cells as of right after labor day, you know, your last orders for early treatment meds you can put in until I guess maybe Monday or Tuesday.

I'm going to put a nice little display together so you can see what they are. But um, they sound really good and the packaging is sharp and clean and really looks good over at seven cells.com where our code has always worked as well there before they kind of broke off the medicine business to its own separate thing that is going away and we go back to seven cells.

"Bernie says the health care, which I guess he's referring to Obamacare, is that I thought. Yeah. Yeah. As a disaster. So there's some you know, he tries to gloss it over by saying he should tout his record. Meanwhile, inflation, he has obviously nothing to do with inflation jobs. He has not. He hasn't created the jobs. He said he hasn't brought inflation even down to the two percent where we were at one point eight before he took office. Just because you've got it from nine, because the Fed has raised interest rates faster than ever in history, doesn't give Biden any credit for bringing it down to three. Biden's done nothing. Biden fights against the Fed, quite frankly. And it's ticking back up. Because he can't control it. He can't control energy prices. Neither can the Fed, by the way. The Fed is like breaking eggs with ham, you know, breaking an egg with a hammer. Yeah, it'll get the job done, but there's gonna be a lot of collateral damage. That's what the Fed is doing. So the things that he's even trying to tout as good, he doesn't even know what he's talking about. They're not good at all. But the point of people live in paycheck to paycheck, if people go into the voting booth and vote their pocketbook, which is what a lot of people do, and it will only probably get worse between now and the election. If you look at housing, if you look at housing starts, you look at jolts, the numbers we got last week, a couple this week, early this week, jolts. You look at the ADP report this morning, expecting 220,000 new jobs. Oh, wait, only got 170,000. Some of the other months are being revised down. So the labor market is starting to also soften up. There's almost no doubt in my mind the Fed is gonna have gone too far in raising too much and really are gonna throw us into some kind of recession. The only, as I've been saying, you mix slowing growth, stagflation with bad tax policy, which of course this administration wants to continue to try to pile on. That's what heads you towards depression. And I think the only question at this point is whether how deep the recession is gonna be and whether it will head towards depression and is there going to be a credit event? Is there going to be more small banking going out of business? I don't think anyone exactly knows what's coming. Commercial real estate, I think we know it's coming. It is going to be a disaster. Yeah. Yeah. I hear that from David Zier cause he, he works in that industry. He's done it for, for decades. Residential is probably going to flatline at some point as well. Pretty much frozen. Even now you can't sell a 3% mortgage to go try to find a new house to buy it at 8% mortgage. And if you're in a 3% mortgage and you for, and you wanted to be a seller, well, there's just no buyers because they're not going to buy your house with an 8% mortgage and possibly even going higher than that. So, there are a lot of warning signs on the horizon for this economy, which is also not going to be helpful to this administration as they try to kick up, I guess, a reelection campaign for this old fossil or whoever they kick it up for, it's not going to be good for anybody. Cause if, if we're to believe what, and I don't know, I don't know if we mentioned this off air or on air yesterday, I'm, I'm trying to hard to remember exactly when we talked about what Greg Kelly had alluded to. We talked about it and you said, why do that until you're ready to drop it, right? So it'll be interesting to see, you know, and I mentioned that because you said, we don't even know if it's going to be him and this could be the thing as Greg Kelly said that could make it impossible for him to run again and would probably also neuter him as a president. He might have to step down. You have to wonder where the Greg Kelly thing came from. Think about it. I mean, he's a great reporter. Yeah. Like his show a lot, always liked what he's done. He doesn't seem like a, he's not a bomb thrower, not a, um, for him to come out with that statement and you would think it would have to come from someone pretty reliable that he knows trusts. Well, it reminds me of the new Gingrich statement, right? He said, is this totally hearsay? Not sure. You know, I can't put it, put a name on it, but from what I heard, blah, blah, blah. And he heard, you know, the, uh, the, the faux Fannie Willis thing. And now you've got Greg Kelly alluding to something as well. This one though, saying that he's heard, he heard it's a tape and that the white house is aware of the tape. Um, I don't know if they're going through the, the, the process and said there was tapes member. They said there's like 13 tapes. Yeah. And I don't know if that means they're trying to verify it before they release it. That's why they're holding it back to make sure all the ducks are in a row that this is not some kind of scam. So maybe that's why they're holding it back. Maybe that's why. Um, I mean, coming from him, I have to give it some credence, right? Yeah. There's a lot of people who would say it. I go, Oh yeah. Okay. I'll wait and see it. Right. And then I was listening to Bon Gino earlier today and, and he's, he said, you know, his sources tell him the same thing. There are other things that are coming out. He thinks it has to do with Ukraine. You know, again, Viktor Shokin, um, President Poroshenko over there, they record everything. And I forget who it was. I don't know where I saw it. And again, sometimes, sometimes there's so much stuff going on that I forget, like, where did I hear it? Did we talk about it? But I heard something and I saw something that people over in Europe, and this is a European thing that we don't do it here as much, but they're all into recording everything.

"Yeah. All right. Live from Studio 6B. Lots to do here. And obviously there's a lot of other news to get to. I did want to start with that, because, again, I was like, whoa. But lots of stuff. The Trump prosecutors have a grand jury problem, according to Mark Levin and Fox News Digital from the other day. And what is that grand jury? Well, we can talk about the problem, but one of his broader points in this piece is something else that we've been talking about in this show. And he asks, where are the defense attorneys? Where are the motions? Where is the Trump legal team? So we'll talk about that. Couple of things in the Federalist. A couple of things out of the Daily Mail about Hunter Biden helping to devise a plan, you know, to close down the Viktor Shokin investigation into Burisma. New emails revealed. So there's that. Lots to talk about. We'll do the news with Rick Delgado. We'll get into these issues. Slick Rick will join us at the top of the hour. Live from Studio 6B. Glad you're in on a Wednesday night. We'll be right back. All right. 17 past the hour. 17 past the hour live from Studio 6B. I mean, I got to go put a sweater on. I got to go put a sweater on because it is so cold in the chat right now. I got to go put a sweater on. I'll take you all to church. And so you all need to go to church with me. Oh, wow. Oh, man. I see what you mean. You both. Oh, geez. All right. Well, there you go. 17 past the hour live from Studio 6B. Lots to get to. We'll do some news. Slick Rick's going to join us at the top of the second hour for sports. Got a couple of I think we've got a couple of clips we didn't get to earlier in the week. Bernie Sanders not too happy with well, I don't know. I guess I guess you'll have to decide what you think. It sounds to me like he's taking shots at Biden in the Biden economy and given the recession that we are certainly going to see in 2024. Everybody's still fighting about how deep it's going to be. I mean, the housing market's completely frozen, credit card debt through the roof, savings through the four recession clearly on the horizon. Well, it sounds like Bernie's well, I don't know. Decide for yourself. Roll that, Erin. Yesterday, you urged Democrats to make it clear which side they're on when it comes to the working class. And you said if we're going to defeat the creeping authoritarianism and right wing extremism, there has to be an ideological change, of course. Can you explain what you mean by that? Well, what I mean by that, Donna, is that the president has a right to be very proud of many of the accomplishments that we've achieved in the last three years. Unemployment very, very low. We've brought inflation down. We're investing in clean energy. We're rebuilding our infrastructure. We have made real progress in a number of areas. But the reality is that today, 60 percent of our people are living paycheck to paycheck. We have massive levels of income and wealth inequality. Three people or more wealth in the bottom half of America. Our health care system is a total disaster. Eighty five million people uninsured, uninsured, underinsured, while the insurance companies make huge profits. The cost of pharmaceutical drugs, prescription drugs, sky high. So the point is, in my view, the president should tout his very good record. We have got to continue to defend women's right to control their own bodies. But we have to deal with the reality of life today. That's what Roosevelt did back in 1936. And that is to understand that we have massive levels of corporate greed in every part of society. Very rich are getting richer. Working people are struggling. We have got to make it clear. We're going to stand with those workers. We're going to have a health care system that works for all lower the cost of prescription drugs, raise the minimum wage to a living wage. And so I think that was the message of yesterday. Sixty five percent of people live in paycheck to paycheck, Bernie says out loud.

"Some bright part about it, obviously, about this, it's obviously caught the attention everybody, given, like you said, probably not only the second time, but certainly the second time it's been caught on film. I would say this is worse than the first one. Oh, yeah. Right. I mean, definitely worse. I mean, this was. I mean, that is about as uncomfortable as you could. I mean, 45 seconds, as you'll see. Yeah. And not only that, if you notice, he doesn't look he's lost some weight, too. I don't I don't I don't think his his situation is completely under control. I think I think he's on a downward spiral. AP reports, after being helped briefly to his office, he returned to the podium, said he was fine. He later joked. Well, this is about the first one, he said, the president called the check on me. Biden was asked about this today and Biden said, I just don't know enough about it to know. Bud says, thank you, Rick Delgado, that is exactly right about McConnell and Feinstein and Biden and Pelosi. So, again, I don't think your view is is not going to be shared by many people and you would think it would be shared by me, but I don't know something about the human element of it. I just find extremely sad and I find it sad that really nobody seemingly from his family is stepping in, I guess. Maybe they will. I don't know. Yeah, it's just it's just and again, when I saw this happen today and I watched, you know, there's two videos of it, there's one that's forty five and a minute and a half. One part is, you know, I guess when it first happens and it's an extended piece, the first thing I thought of, man, Damon's going to hate my take on this. No, but everyone's entitled. You're entitled to your take on him and and your feelings towards him. No, I understand that. But I'm just saying on the personal side, because I know you like to separate the two, you know, as a human, you don't want like I don't want bad things to happen to human beings overall. Right. Especially if I know you like like I don't know Mitch McConnell, so I don't give a damn what happens to Mitch McConnell. What happens to you? I damn well do care about because I know you and I know your family. So don't get on the wrong side. Don't end up in the Senate. But but people like this and again, they divorce themselves from everybody else. They don't care. It's not their problem. They've got their own. They've got their own things that they focus on. And those things that they focus on don't include you and they don't include me. And you're absolutely right. You can't argue with any of that. And the chat absolutely agrees with you and people saying, Damon, he hates you. He doesn't care about you. Meaning McConnell. And I get it. I get it. And if any again, if anyone you would think would be I think would be me, I've I've thrown more fire at this guy in eight years, but it's all been about politics and how he acts. So and but I but I do get it. And I think most of people probably will agree with you. And you've got a bigger heart than me. That's fine. Well, that's that's fine, too. That's just the way. That's just the way it goes. But I think for me, I think personally, it's because I've reached that point. Everybody reaches that point differently, right? When you finally get to a point where you're like, that's it, I've had enough and I'm going to do something about it. And I think in this country, I feel like we're getting to that point, but people are reaching it at different points. Like a lot of people that are Trump supporters, we already reached that point, we're pissed. But I think slowly we're starting to see more people from different different parts of society that maybe aren't Trump supporters, but they've seen enough of what's happening in this country and the people that that run it and how they treat everybody else, that they're starting to get fed up. You know, you see there are videos all over the place now that are popping up on social media. And it's great to see.

"Everything's covered up and nobody everybody goes, oh, what a statesman he was. No, I'm sorry, I'm not cutting him any slack. And again, I understand people have a different, you know, they want to separate the two. His personal decisions are affecting everything professionally, what he does in Senate and what he does to this country. That's that's my feeling. Other than that, I mean, great guy. Well, I mean, that's fine. I don't have a problem with you feeling that way. I mean, I obviously I don't feel exactly the same. I'm finding the ability to separate the two and look at it from a human standpoint, just from a human standpoint. I mean, it's somebody's like you said, somebody's husband, somebody's grandfather, somebody's. But but you know what? I mean, you wouldn't. Go ahead. No, go ahead. From the human side. He doesn't care. His his policies show that he doesn't have a human side, much like Biden doesn't have a human side. It's all about what's good for them. You, your family be damned. They don't care. And that's why he's still there, because he doesn't care. You are OK. All right. All right. Well, that's that's that's that's Mitch McConnell, the ice cream man, just frozen stiff. Good. Wheel him about and just keep keep pushing him around and collect the check and continue the cover ups. Someone just said my son suffers from absent seizures. Looks like Mitch has the same. I mean, I guess we don't we don't specifically know what is actually happening to him. But listen, I'm sure there's people who share your I guess you would think that I would share that. But I don't know. I don't on the human level share your thoughts at all. But I'm sure there's a lot of people that that that do. And I don't I don't think it's a far stretch to to mix the two, the political and then the person, obviously, and be able to separate the two. Yeah. But it's just men. It's just I don't remember who said it, but I agree with it. It's the statement of I don't want anyone making policy that they don't have to live through. That's also a good point. And believe me, all his policies, they don't affect him. Biden's policies don't affect him by nomics. Working great. Not for us. Working great for him because his bank account is full. We just have to track them down and find out whose names they're under. Yeah.

"All right, live from Studio 6B on a Wednesday night, 8 p.m. on the East Coast, Real America's Voice. Glad you're in. Rick Delgado sitting right there. We're going to take you through the first hour. Slick Rick's going to join us in the second hour. Lots to talk about. Mr. Delgado, how are you? I'm good. How about you? Very good. Always excited to be here to spend a couple hours with our friends, talk about some issues facing this country. Erin and Fran holding it down as always. Anything peak your fancy today? Oh, now that you mentioned it. There's a couple things out there I think we could talk about. Hopefully we will. All right. Very good. We'll do that. We'll get to some news with Mr. Delgado. We'll get to sports with Slick Rick in the second hour. Should we get right to it? I was thinking about how to start today because I know I wanted to start with this. I think Grant Stinchfield just ended with it. It's interesting because obviously I've done this show now since 2015. This has probably been the number one target of most of my ire over those eight years. And that would be Mitch McConnell. But I'm finding it extremely easy to separate politically what an absolute disaster he has been to what personally is happening to the man in front of the cameras. And it's just enough is enough. I mean, I even see arguments and I almost have a hard time with the argument saying, well, you know, we got to wait for him to be appointed. We can't have a Democrat governor appointed. I mean, it's almost like abuse, though. Like I get that. And I guess I'm on board with that, I think. But my God, they have got to say something. He's got to get removed from leadership. Someone has to make a statement. And he has to be removed from I mean, he's got to just whatever they can do. Short of a statement of retiring. Which I get the argument that if he retires and a Democrat governor replaces him with a Democrat senator. And why should we give them that? Why should we give the left that that. You know. But I mean, this is about it, so I'm almost uncomfortable playing it. And again, this comes from someone who I can't despise this man more politically. But this is about as uncomfortable of 45 seconds as you'll see on on screen. Put this up, Aaron. What am I talking about? Running for reelection in 2026. Did you hear the question, Senator? Running for reelection in 2026. All right, I'm sorry, you are working in a minute. So, I mean, just. I mean, the idea that Mitch McConnell should be involved with any kind of. Deciding on policy, foreign policy, domestic policy should be in anything. I mean. What do you what do you what do you make of this, Delgado? I'm going to come at it from a slightly different tack there, Damon. You might get mad at me and if that's the case, well, then so be it. But I refuse to bite my tongue any longer, much like the gentleman who had some choice words for the president today after receiving his dead son's body two years ago. I don't care. I truly do not give a flying you know what about Mitch McConnell and his health issues. He needs to go, period. End of sentence. I don't care if he's sick. He looks like he belongs. That's the way somebody looks when they are in the ending state. Right. You've seen it in the homes. They show these people documentaries, old people, you know, they just kind of stand that they don't do anything. The wet nurse comes over, kind of kind of leads them around. This old feeble fool has been robbing us for years, decades. And I don't much like the queen. Remember you got mad at me because the queen died and I was like, who cares? Same with Mitch McConnell. I don't care. Why? Because he doesn't care. He doesn't care enough to I'm going to mix personal with policy because they go together. They're part of the same person. His policies have hurt us, right? His policies have hurt us. They've hurt our country. They've hurt our nation. They've hurt our pocketbooks. They've hurt our safety. They've hurt everything. And he doesn't care. He still stays there. And I'm trying to think, well, why would somebody stay that long? Like the Feinstein's and the Biden's and now this old feeble fool who just sits there and freezes up constantly. And you know, that's happened more than once. People are like, oh, it happened twice. It's happened way more than that. It's just it got caught on camera. And that's where that why they're nervous. He's been he's been a thief throughout that time. He collects his paycheck. His wife reels him out. Don't get the paycheck. Continue the cover up, Mitch, because and that's what I think it is. I think it's part partly they stick around this long because they need the money, right? They need that money. But they also need to cover up what they've been doing because they don't want anybody to find out what they've been doing. And I think I think that's a driving force in a lot of these old I refuse to go, they're clutching on, they're holding on with their little disgusting little chewed off fingertips, gripping on to power and money as much as they can. So when they finally do end up leaving.

"Now a legal story where watching this morning the Supreme Court will take up three O three creative versus a lettuce and its upcoming term. A case that pits a Colorado state anti discrimination law meant to protect same sex couples against free speech rights. The case which is similar to a 2018 dispute involving a bakery is about a web designer who says she can create wedding websites for same sex couples because of her religious beliefs. For more Bloomberg Kimberly Robinson and Lydia Wheeler spoke with former federal judge Michael McConnell. As I mentioned this case is very similar to masterpiece cake shop which the justices decided in 2018, but it differs in one really important way. And that's that this dispute is framed as one about free speech instead of religious liberty. What, if any difference is that going to make this time around? Well, I think it greatly simplifies and narrows the case because of free exercise claim might be brought by anyone whose beliefs prevent them working with a sandwich wedding. As a speech case, this is combined just to people whose activities are expressed in nature. People are actually speaking. So it's a much narrower case. This didn't start out as just a free speech case, though, in the beginning, the web designer asked the justices to consider whether the state's anti discrimination law violated her religious freedom. But the justice is actually changed the question they were asked to decide and honed in exclusively on this speech right. So I'm curious how often do you see the court do something like that where they rewrite the question and what does that signal? So it doesn't happen very often. I mean, this is not a unicorn. It happens from time to time, but this is somewhat unusual, and it indicates that the court really wants to focus in on the speech claim, which, as I say, is narrower and not the broader free exercise claim. So we've seen the Roberts court under chief justice John Roberts issue ruling after ruling that a pretty protective of religious rights, particularly the right to freely exercise your religion. And that was so just this last term in cases involving educational funding and school prayer. I'm wondering, does the courts reframing of this case as one involving only speech signal that the court is kind of shifting away from robustly protecting religious rights? Have we reached the high water mark there? I don't think so. I don't think it indicates anything of the sort. It indicates that the facts of this case seem to map more clearly onto free speech doctrine than anything else. And as former federal judge, Michael McConnell, speaking
"mcconnell" Discussed on The Erick Erickson Show
"Can't do this. That democrats haven't thought this through really does tell you that they forgotten how to govern. They forgotten how to be the majority. They were so used to their giorgis being so big. They don't understand how to be a close majority where they can only lose three votes in the house. And none of the senate. It makes the centrist democrats more powerful and makes mitch mcconnell powerful as a minority leader of the senate and the democrats. Get grapple with it. And if they don't give the progressives what they want the progressive feud is gonna spill it even further. You may have alexandru. Cortez run against chuck schumer for the senate next year new york. Progressives will demand extract concessions from the democrats. If they can't get anything and right now they're getting nothing and if they do get it they set mitch mcconnell up to be the most powerful minority leader of the senate in a generation or two in the next hour we do need to talk about donald trump going down to georgia on saturday giving national republicans some serious heartburn even as their reports that senate republicans are starting to come to terms with the idea of herschel walker running for the senate in fact there is some news from a national journal that if republicans do have a wave it probably herschel probably won't matter he'll be able to be swept in one way or the other We'll get into that but President trump essentially saying he would prefer stacey abrams to bring up is giving republicans heartburn. We will get there but before we do. I just question. Where is joe biden if you listen to the complaints from democrats in congress. It's biden has been absent that he has it Has it been engaged. There's new polling out that suggests the public thinks he Mentally is not as sharp as he used to be. Shall we say there are real concerns there. And he's not engaged in the fights that the democrats need him to be engaged in. He's just not. He's nowhere to be seen in the people in the white house who are doing his bidding tend to be of the far left so they're not very accommodating to the moderates concerns he he doesn't have someone running his legislative shop who is mindful of the concerns across the board of the democratic coalition. There are only concerned with progressive concerns. It seems and the result is a white house that is adrift a white house. That can't figure out what's going on. A white house that is unhappy unfocused undisciplined and unable to build a democrat coalition to get democrat initiatives over the finish line who cares about republicans all the fighting is within the democratic party right now and they can't build a coalition to get anything done so now comes word that democrats really do expect to lose the house next year. Which is why. They're so angsty about getting anything done now..
"mcconnell" Discussed on The Erick Erickson Show
"Get anything done. They control the whole congress and the white house and they can't get anything done. They have an opportunity to pass this stuff without republican help and they refuse they don't. They're their their discombobulated so republicans attacking if they pass it for raising taxes and spending too much. Republicans attacked them. If they don't pass it for not being able to legislate for not being able to govern with they control everything. The democrats have painted themselves into this quarter and by the way they just want to get out of the tunnel. They wanna head into the light and the light that they're headed into his mitch mcconnell's fast-approaching debt ceiling drain. He's going to run them over on that. Now that's fight number three the debt ceiling democrats can't agree on the price tag for reconciliation. They can't figure out a compromise that placate progressives and moderates the progressives have seen. Let's see they didn't get the voting rights act passed. They didn't get their other voting reform package pass. They didn't get the minimum wage increase passed. They didn't get amnesty pass. They haven't gotten filibuster reform. They want this. They didn't get nita turner in the house. Progressives need a win they want a win. they're blaming the democratic leadership for denying them their winds. It's not going well for the progressives and on top of this fight number three the debt ceiling the debt ceiling has to be raised in large part because of the democrats spending plan therefore republicans have said. You're gonna have to put the debt ceiling reconciliation. Or we're going to filibuster and the democrats can't do it the democrats you've got to understand the time here. The democrats have convinced themselves. They can't just write a bill saying we expand the debt ceiling. no no. They say it's going to take weeks to get to it because they're tied up with infrastructure. They can't talk and they can't walk into gum at the same time. So the democrats say the republicans are going to have to vote for the jets in mitch. Mcconnell and the republicans say nope the democrats think. Mcconnell's played chicken. Mcconnell isn't playing games at all. he's destroyed democrat dream. See the only way for democrats to pass. The debt. Lead increases to stick it into reconciliation. If you stick in reconciliation to bypass the filibuster you have to gut half of your reconciliation plan because remember it's gotta be deficit neutral. Raising the debt ceiling is going to impact the deficit. So the democrats don't want to put it in reconciliation. Democrats want it as a standalone measure. They demand republicans. Vote for it. The gop say no and that gets to the fourth fight the continuing resolution. There will be a government. Shutdown on friday if congress does not pass a continuing resolution all the continue resolution does is it takes the money that's already been spending continues to spit..
"mcconnell" Discussed on Bob Ryan & Jeff Goodman NBA Podcast
"And Jeff Goodman podcast. NBA, some college, a little bit of everything. You know what can I say, but it wasn't going to happen here with him. I was okay with it because it wasn't about talent I didn't think. All right, let's get right to it. All right, welcome into another episode of the Ryan and Goodman podcast. I'm Jeff Goodman. He's bob Ryan and we're joined by, you know, you try to be objective, bob when you do this job, right? You try. But some sometimes you just can't be objective. And that's how I am with TJ McConnell. Absolutely. That's how I am. I'll admit it. You know, we're both Arizona wildcats. One did a little bit more to help the Arizona program than the other. But, you know, listen, I'll go back to maybe my favorite story involving TJ McConnell bob. And he had graduated from Arizona. And I don't know if he even remembers this. But he graduated and he called me maybe I don't know two weeks after TJ. I don't know if you remember this at all, and you asked me. You said, hey, do you think I can play in the league? Do you think I can play the league? And I said, hell yeah. Like, at the time, Matthew Dellavedova was playing like 30 minutes for Cleveland in the playoffs. And I said that to you. I said, listen, you're not the same player, we know that. But absolutely you can play in the league because you're an elite defender. Your toughest shit and you're gonna get better shooting the basketball. And now TJ McConnell, you are gonna go into year 7 in the NBA now? That is correct. Yeah. And the best part is, the first game TJ played bob was where? In the garden in Boston. Yeah. It did not go well. I'll tell you that much, though. But you know what? I don't know if it mattered. You were so happy. When I walked into the locker room, the smile on your face that you're on an NBA team, you know, playing for an MBA team that day was like, I don't think it mattered to you, whether you play well or not. You were on a team. It's a hell of a story, TJ. It's a hell of a story and again, I'm not objective. I'm not afraid to say that. You know what I think of you as a person, you know what I think of you is how hard you've worked and you just got to get paid now. You got to get paid. Yeah. I mean, it's kind of just a waiting game right now. Honestly, just trying to work out and spend some much needed time with my 5 month old son and my wife, you know, the seasons of grind. So just spending some necessary time with them.

"It's muddied the agenda of the ruling party by not allowing it to go forward that ruling party to go forward with a bold agenda that they were voted into an have so it's muddied that ability for the winning party to be able to move forward consequently it dilutes and prevents the kind of big change that we need like right now so barring the fact that it's probably not going to get removed. There's some democratic senators that Like joe manchin and a few others that don't want to get rid of the filibuster so let's assume that that's not an option as a result of that consensus not being there. So here's some of the things that the brookings institution is laid out that could be done to modify the current rules that we have so one of the most disgusting aspects of the filibuster. I think folks is that it's used to even prevent opening up an issue for debate. So they don't even let you get to a debate for god's sakes with this filibuster they just start. You know debate. You know talking at length so you don't even get to the point where you can open up the issue for debate so you could prevent that by from happening by preventing senators from filibustering the motion to proceed so that could be off limits for the filibuster number two you could weaken the byrd rule that limits adding extra provisions into bills passed by reconciliation. Now bills that are passed by reconciliation like obamacare for example they only need a simple majority vote however reconciliation has limits on how many bills it can be used to pass in a given year for different types of things so it has limitations and we could though weaken the byrd rule. That says you can't add things into bills that are being passed by reconciliation to get things into bills passed by reconciliation. I know this is kind of weirdly inane and sort of complicated stuff. But it has a bearing on where we go. As a country with the mandate that we currently have right now the democratic mandate so thirdly one of the most straightforward ways and one of the most common sense ways to dilute the efficacy of bills blocked by filibuster would-be to simply say that a senator can filibuster essentially keep debating an issue as long as he or she wants but he has to be physically present to do so so that keeps them from handing off you know starting a filibuster and then handing it off after four hours to another senator on the floor. That hands it off to another senator on the floor that just keeps going ad infinitum. Hey look if you wanna filibuster you've got to be there You know you brought it up. You're the senator that wanted to filibuster great. You know we'll all sit here for twelve hours. Twenty four hours. But you've got to be the one to stand at the podium and keep talking if you want to filibuster to stand so this would obviously prevent a filibuster from going on indefinitely because you know let's face it. A lot of the senators are old. I mean they're good for what about twelve hours of yapping constantly and you know they just fade. So i mean that would be one way to do it folks but The fact is that. We've we've got to do something here. Because i understand that. Mcconnell didn't change the filibuster rules while trump was in office and that's and that was great. That was a nice thing to do. However you know we've got You know extr extenuating circumstances right now with this pandemic and we've got to get things passed so we can't look back in and say yeah..

"Sullen and unsmiling political hack and republican senators are going to stay with him. They will not win again. That's a pretty. That's some pretty strong words. there can now. I'm going to turn it over to you. But i do want to say just one thing into this because again i have. I have a bit to fight here. And that's to say that if trump if he was listening. And i know he's not that my response to this little bit of statement he has here is trump. He's the embarrassment he's been the embarrassment to the conservative and libertarian alliance. That has always held together. The republican party and more than any other single person has shaken my fundamental belief of myself as a republican and so i think trump is one who created a tent that has included some of the most despicable groups including neo nazis and trying to bring them and successfully in many cases into the party. And i think that trump's going to go down without question in history along the likes of. Andrew jackson is the worst president in american history. So i've been pretty clear on where i stand but but Ken what do you think about this ongoing republican war and what it might mean for party realignment for politics in the upcoming twenty two thousand twenty two midterm elections. What do you think about this. I mean this is. This is some pretty intense public feuding. Yeah well i just got. I mean answered johnson. Enter jackson is still on the twenty dollar bill people. Some some people think he's a good president. Listen if you mass genocide people you're going to have to be in my book down just a little bit. So he's on the twenty dollar bill. I have you listen. He he is the single handed cause for how many countless other genocide i just. I can't get over that one. So i ain't him. Johnson is bad. I don't. I'm not trying to suggest that it was not. He's not my president. That's for sure. But i would have wreaked. Probably andrew johnson. James buchanan even a little lower. So i think trump. Yeah he's certainly going to be thought of that breath well in terms of civil war. You know it's a pretty one sided war because i think Mcconnell has absolutely no interest in even engaging in whatever war is going on at all. He's he has not responded. He's not going to respond respond. He doesn't need to respond. he doesn't i think he has said he's never gonna speak to trump again and he's probably never gonna speak of trump again. He's just. This nonsense has no impact on mcconnell at all even the idea that trump says he's going to primary mcconnell mcconnell just got re elected to a six-year term in twenty twenty if he wants to run again in twenty twenty six when he's about eighty five years old..
