FBI Received 'Criminal Info' From Over 40 Sources on Biden Family
"That Grassley learned that an FBI task force within the Washington field office sought To and in some cases successfully shut down reporting and information from those sources By falsely discrediting the information as foreign disinformation that quote effort caused investigative activity to cease unquote But despite these efforts by the FBI task force Grassley said in at least one instance A confidential human source and its information had been vetted by multiple US Attorney's offices which found quote no hits to known sources The revelations were laid out in a letter Grassley wrote to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI director Christopher Wray late last night The letter was exclusively obtained by Fox News digital so it'll be dismissed by the pro -hamas Nazi media So what should have happened here Mr. producer? Grassley should have given it to Hamas. Then Hamas could have released it to the media including Reuters AP the Washington Post NBC and then the media might actually take it seriously Grassley said based on the information provided to my office over a period of years and multiple credible whistleblowers there appears to be an effort within the Justice Department and FBI to shut down investigative activity relating to the Biden family Grassley wrote to Garland Garland and Wray now you know why Garland will never and would never appoint a special counsel there is no way he's gonna let this out of his control this is the biggest cover -up in American
A highlight from Neglect of Domestic Issues: Americas Growing Concerns with Karoline Leavitt
"Donald Trump is the only candidate in America, on both sides, that cannot be bought. He is running because he loves this country, he loves this country's people, and he wants to save it from the hell that Joe Biden has put it through. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests, and my fellow citizens, America's comeback now. starts right All right, welcome back Financial Guys Media Network, Mike Sbarroza, in for another exclusive interview today. I have the pleasure of having Caroline Levitt, a spokeswoman for MAGA, Inc. with me today. Caroline, thanks for joining us. Thank you so much for having me, Mike. I appreciate it. Absolutely. So if you didn't get the hint, MAGA, Inc., she is working, you know, I shouldn't say for the president, but working on the president in terms of the campaign and plugging what he does really well. Caroline, I've seen you on Newsmax, I've seen you on Fox News, a lot of different places, and you've said a lot of great things. I saw you go at it with a Ron DeSantis campaigner the other day, I liked that, that was a lot of fun. Let me just talk about a few talking points, though, about the president and issues that the left is now claiming the president has. So just this week, he was in, was it New Hampshire he was in, South Carolina it was. Yeah. And he went to a gun store and now they're saying that he violated his legal obligations, he went and bought a gun. From everybody that was there said that was not true. Your thoughts on the left now saying he should be put in jail for buying a firearm. Honestly, it's completely unsurprising at this point. They will do and say anything that they possibly can to try and attack President Trump. He was visiting a small business, visiting a gun store in the great state of South Carolina. The owners there are big supporters of his, and they had gifted him a Glock that was ingrained with Trump 45. And then the Democrats, you know, absolutely went ballistic in trying to say that he was violating laws. And it's just ridiculous. This is how, this is what they do. They go after President Trump for absolutely everything, but then they turn a blind eye to the real crimes committed by their own party, namely Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, who almost evaded charges on a federal gun violation, which he's now facing an indictment for with an attorney that was handpicked by Merrick Garland, who's from Biden's home state. So the corruption goes on and on and the Democrat side of the media says nothing, but they're constantly attacking the former president. Voters see right through this crap, really doesn't matter. You'll see that in the polls shortly.
Rep. Troy Nehls: Garland, Wray Will Do Everything to Cover Biden
"Willing to stop arresting political opponents and going full commie. So, until that point, we need more people willing to, cause it's radio, bust us bells if you know what I mean. We need bell busters. And you seem like one of them and I like that. So, this hearing is happening with Derek Farland the other day, otherwise known as Merrick Garland, and you were having none of this. You just sliced into this guy. This guy I think makes Eric Holder know what I mean? I'm a legitimate attorney general. This guy is the most corrupt person I in that office in my life. And I was glad you didn't get interrupted when you were calling him out. Your thoughts on the status of the Justice Department under Garland? Well, thank you. It's a great question and we I all know think the American people are figuring this out that there is that. We talk about the two -tier justice system, the justice system under Garland and even the FBI Director Wray that will do everything to provide that cover for the crime family named Biden and then what you're asking and what they've done to Donald Trump over the past several years. So no, there is a two -tier justice system. I guess I am one of those bell busters and I know that you served in NYPD for years. I'm a 30 -year lawman myself. I was a chair of a large county in Texas. So I just call it the way it is. I'm authentic and I think I think people appreciate it, but AG Garland, you know, you get five minutes and you want to seize that that moment sees that opportunity. I didn't give him a lot of time to answer the questions that I had for him because I knew I would just get nothing but delay tactics and lies. So I answered the questions to him, but he did the video, the video of Joe Biden up there talking about firing Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor, or Ukraine and get the one billion dollars to me. That is bribery. The quid
The DOJ Is One System With Two Sets of Rules
"Another thing happened this weekend tell me again how there's you know one system of justice and it's free and fair there is a system of justice but please spare me the nonsense about it being free and fair you know the DOJ's holding on to Hunter Biden's mugshot don't want any negative photo ops there that's so weird that's so strange cuz Donald Trump's mugshot made it out right away about a fake crime when the allegations against Hunter at least are very very real no one can see Hunter's mugshot though maybe a bad PR opportunity for the police we do have one system of justice no we don't then yeah we do if you're a Democrat who toes the liberal line you're protected if you're a Republican or any non Democrat who doesn't toe the line you my friend are and it ends in an ED and starts with an F and it rhymes with duct it's it's true that's not two systems of justice it's one they're not no it's two no it's not it's one they are brutally honest about it they don't care the New York Times an wrote entire piece about how Joe Biden was pushing Merrick Garland to stop acting like a ponderous judge and go after Donald Trump they're not hiding it that's their system of justice it's one system there's not two sets of rules there's one set of rules the one set of rules is if you're a Democrat you're okay and
Getting to the Ray Epps Truth With Darren Beattie
"Us now is Darren Beatty. Darren, you have a very important new piece, Revolver Dot News. Merrick Garland's sloppy Ray Epps plea deal is worse than you think. Darren, tell us about it. Well, as many of listeners might know by now, Ray Epps was indicted finally by the DOJ in what is maybe one of the most bungling and inept efforts to salvage the crumbling narrative surrounding Ray Epps and the Fed's erection more generally. This is over two and a half years after January 6th and the Fed's perfunctorily weekly slap him with a singular misdemeanor charge for disorderly conduct. At this point, it's simply too little, too late, and people see it for the desperate attempt that it is. And so we have two brand new pieces on Revolver Dot News addressing this and analyzing it. The one at the very top that you mentioned sort of looks at the statement of offense. Basically, they gave Ray Epps a really sweet, guilty plea deal, and he's agreeing to having done a certain number of things that amount to this misdemeanor charge. So we go through the statement of offense and its description of his behavior on the 5th and the 6th, and we compare it to what we have documented on video of him doing, and we show what an absolute sham this statement of offense, this plea deal, actually is. And in this particular piece at Revolver Dot News, there's some very rare, some very amusing and all very damning footage of Ray Epps's involvement on the 5th and on the

"As if the exchange with Thomas Massey wasn't bad enough, wait till you hear the exchange between Congressman Matt Gaetz and Merrick Garland yesterday about whether or not there were federal agents in the crowd on January 6th. The United States faces, and we are doing everything within our power to rebut that, to stop that, to prevent their invasions both kinetic, both and through cyberspace, and we will continue to do that. If someone gave that answer in your courtroom when you were a judge, you would tell them they were being non-responsive and you would direct them to answer the question. By the way, I want to break something down. I want to play the first few seconds of that and show what a bunch of clowns Jerry Nadler and Merrick Garland and the Democrats really are. Listen to how that played out. Matt Gaetz asked a question. Did you lose track of how many assets were there at January 6th? There's no answer. Because Nadler interrupts him, the penguin interrupts him and says, your time has expired. Gaetz says, well, I get an answer to the question. Nadler says, well, let him answer the question. How can he let him answer the question if you're interrupting him saying the gentleman's time has expired? Listen to it again, just the beginning. On January 6th, did you lose count of the number of federal assets? Did you lose count and order an audit? The gentleman's time has expired. I get an answer to the question. Did they lose count? Let him answer the question. That's perfect. If that doesn't sum it all up, the gentleman's time has expired. What a bunch of fools. Those are the people in the seat of power in Washington, D.C. Tom's in Mitchell, South Dakota. Tom, welcome to The Mike Gallagher Show. Hello. Hello. Hi, Tom. Hi. I would say in that kind of a situation, he didn't know what was going on, and the reason I say that is because as soon as they get in office, they probably go to their underlings and say, when I tell you to take care of something, just do it. Don't tell me how you did it. And that way I can say I don't know anything about it. You don't think that Merrick Garland has any idea whether or not there were any federal agents in the crowd on January 6th? In his own head, probably, but he's got plausible deniability by saying, you know, I don't know anything about it. Uh-huh. Do you think he knows anything about it? I'm sure he knows that something happened that day, but I'm sure... Do you think any of his agents or any of the FBI, all the reports that have come out about FBI agents who were planted in the crowd, all the stuff we know, do you think as the Attorney General, Tom, do you think he today... I'm not trying to trick you or trap you. Just give me an honest answer. Do you think he has any idea whether or not there were any federal agents in that crowd? I know he has an idea that that happened, but he in his own head can say, no, no, no, no. Do you hear yourself? I'm on your side, dude. I love you. I'm on your side too, but you're saying in his own head. In his own head, he's lying.

"You talk about dodging a bullet, and I get that Mitch McConnell is the subject of a lot of criticism and plenty of wrath from conservatives in America and Republicans who don't trust him. We can largely thank Mitch McConnell for holding the line on Merrick Garland. Thirteen minutes past the hour. Welcome in. It's Thursday. Great to have you here in the Relief Factor studios. Great to be feeling better. Thanks very much for the notes and the texts and the emails of support and the calls. Stupid dry socket after a wisdom tooth extraction. But you know one thing about going through something like that? When you're hurt, then when you start feeling better, the world is a sunnier place. I am so happy right now and so glad to be with you. Glad to talk to my buddy Mark Davis a little bit later this hour, the Eminem experience. Also happy to talk to you about Preborn. And I want to start with you right now. I want to just hear—in fact, I want you to flood my phone lines if you saw Merrick Garland's testimony yesterday before the House Oversight Committee. Did you see this disgrace? Did you see this fiasco? Did you see this nightmare? That's the Attorney General of the United States of America. Do you think it's conceivable that he has no idea if there were any federal assets, any agents, any law enforcement in that crowd? January 6th has become the biggest event for the Democrats since Pearl Harbor. It's Pearl Harbor meets 9-11. It's the most terrible thing that ever happened in the history of America. They're trying to send the 45th president to jail over January 6th. It's a big deal. You think the Attorney General knows whether or not there were any federal agents in that crowd? I honestly want to know if you think it's conceivable that he has no idea to this day if there were any federal agents in that crowd. Do you think that's possible? 1-800-655-MIKE, 15 minutes past the hour. We're in the Relief Factor studios, and the Ph.D. weight loss and nutrition phone number is just that, 800-655-MIKE. I'm watching this. I could not believe my eyes and my ears yesterday when I saw Merrick Garland squirming and gulping water from a water bottle and looking nervous. The guy ought to be nervous because Thomas Massie is right. It seems very possible that he perjured himself.

"I'm so grateful for people like Miranda Devine over the New York Post. She writes, you would think that an attorney general who has presided over the embarrassing debacle of the Hunter Biden investigation would express contrition. Or maybe a little anger at the underlings who have shamed him when he's hauled before a congressional committee to explain his failures. But alas, she writes, Merrick Garland is just another Mr. Magoo. His department is ablaze, but he knows nothing. If you had the misfortune of watching any of Merrick Garland's testimony yesterday, your blood pressure is still probably through the roof. As Miranda Devine writes, even though Merrick Garland used to be a judge, he makes no judgments at all. He's an oblivious bystander, unperturbed by the tyrannical turn the DOJ has taken under his leadership. Persecuting his boss's political enemies and coddling the crooked president's crooked relatives. He professes to have no view about US Attorney David Weiss's farcical five-year investigation of the president's 53-year-old son, Hunter. I mean, at one point, Representative Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana, said to Garland yesterday, have you had personal contact with anyone at FBI headquarters about the Hunter Biden investigation? For what seemed like an eternity, Garland looked down at his tightly clasped hands, slowly turned his head left and right as if the answer might materialize somewhere on the empty table below him, then popped his tongue, said, ah, pursed his lips, exhaled, and arranged the edges of his mouth in a downward shrug before finally looking up at Representative Johnson with a sheepish expression and stammering, I don't recollect the answer to that question, but the FBI works for the Justice Department? A non-sequitur delivered in a cascade of upward inflections as if he was the one asking questions.

"China is the most aggressive, most dangerous adversary the United States faces and we are doing everything within our power to rebut that, to stop that, to prevent their invasions both kinetic and through cyberspace and we will continue to do that. If you had an answer in your courtroom when you were a judge, you would tell them they were being nonresponsive and you would direct them to answer the question. They went wild on that one. Did you lose track of the assets on January 6 and he actually said China, China is our biggest threat. China! And Matt Gaetz is right. If that answer was given in a courtroom, the judge would say that's a nonresponsive answer. What time is it? Oh, I'm wearing blue shoes today. What about the assets on January 6? I don't even understand. Derek, can you give me a little background on why in the world that would even be an answer to a question about January 6? China. Play that one more time, Adam. Let's listen one more time. Matt Gaetz is asking with great specificity and of course the Democrats are freaking out. They're trying to shut it down because they don't want Merrick Garland to talk about federal law enforcement planted in the crowd on January 6. That's a third rail topic. You can't get into that. You can't touch that. So listen one more time because the first time I saw the clip I thought, did he actually say China? How does the word China lead an answer about federal law enforcement planted in the crowd on January 6? One more time. On January 6, did you lose count of the number of federal assets? Did you lose count and order an audit? The gentleman's time has expired. I get an answer to the question of did they lose count? Let him answer the question. The time has expired. The attorney general can respond.

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is the great one, Mark Levin. Mark, thank you for taking the time. I have to say your book right here, The Democrat Party Hates America, is a noteworthy, remarkable, and impressive accomplishment, Mark. The footnotes alone could be its own book. Mark, congratulations, and please introduce the book to our audience. First of all, thank you, Charlie, for all your support all the time. You're a beacon of liberty out there, my brother. Thank you. Well, I decided to put the title in this book when I finished it. Let's look around today, even before we get into any history background on The Democrat Party Hates America. You look at the border. You look at our value of our currency. You look at what's going on in our classrooms. You look what's going on in our courtrooms. You look what's going on with the price of fuel, and soon to be the elimination of the combustion engine. You look at what's going on in the streets, particularly in our inner cities, where people are being mugged, raped, and brutalized, and murdered with very little consequence. And I can go on and on and on. This is the news that we're faced with almost every day. This is what you, Charlie, and I have to deal with almost every day when we talk about it. This is what the American people see every day. Well, these aren't natural disasters. Somebody's causing all these things to happen. So who's causing all these things to happen? It's man -made. Who are these men? What's the Democrat Party behind every single one of these? And when you go back in history, the Democrat Party has never accepted America and Americanism. It's never accepted the Declaration of Independence. It doesn't even accept it today. Never accepts the Constitution. It is rewriting our history about our founding. It's done this before. So we have a party that was the party of the Confederacy, the party of slavery, the party of segregation, the party of eugenics, the party of the Klan, the party of lynching. And all of a sudden it keeps attacking the American history. That's their history. It's not America's history. It's their history. And then today, of course, they are also attacking America. But like good chameleons, they've shifted the way they do it. So whereas they used to be the party of anti -black racism, now they're the party of anti -white racism. Why? Because they don't like white people. Well, many of these are white people. Because they're Marxists. So in order to attack the race founding of the nation, which was founded largely by white people and Europeans, you need to attack that. So you have the 1690 project, you have critical race theory, you have monuments being pulled down, you have all these things going on. Because the goal now is to destroy the connection of the American people with their history, the destruction of the American culture, and so forth and so on. So you got to look at the Democrat Party through the lens of power, their power. Because the Democrat Party, Charlie, is not a typical political party. It's an autocratic entity that doesn't seek to win elections. It seeks to control elections, control the outcome of elections, to diminish the viability of any opposition parties or any opposition of any kind. And so this book gets very deep into the history, as you know. It's very hard to do an interview or answer an interview on this book because it is so comprehensive. It is comprehensive. It is. Yeah. And I've spent a lot of time, Mark, flipping through it. I want to just isolate one sentence that I think is super powerful. Page 23 of the Democrat Party Hates America. The Democrat Party has evolved into an anti -American political and cultural entity. It's an institutional home for the Marxist ideology in its Americanized forms. Mark, part of the challenge I have with people that have a muscle memory of a past that no longer exists, 1980s, 1990s, it's hard, Mark, for some people I talk to for them to believe that the leading American political party that controls the White House and the United States Senate and all the bureaucracies has contempt for the country they govern. That's why I think your book is so important, Mark. It really challenges limiting beliefs. You do it in a fabulous way. But I want to just isolate. This is a party that has bitterness towards what you and I love. This is no longer a policy debate. We want different things. Mark Levin. 100 percent. I'd always amazes when people say to me, well, can't we get something going here? The bipartisan. I don't know. Should we have done something bipartisan with the Confederacy? Some things are right and some things are wrong. When people are, as they say, they use the phrase fundamentally transforming America. Shouldn't we believe them? When one of the leading Democrat lights in the Democrat Party is a Marxist by the name of Bernie Sanders, shouldn't we understand that? When 10 to 15 percent of the Democrat caucus in the House of Representatives are Marxists, shouldn't we accept that and have to deal with it? So what I've tried to do in this book is rather than deal with the ephemeral or the ambiguous, it's to put a label on it. American Marxism sort of set the stage. But the fact of the matter is we have a political entity, which is more than a party. It's your typical autocratic party that wants to do what? That wants to devour this society. That wants to replace the country. They want allegiance to the party, not to the country. They don't give a damn about the country. Your fuel prices, the open border, elections. They have a fourth branch of government that they've created with some help of Republicans, but it's their government, which issues more regulations and laws than Congress ever could. We don't even have a representative republic anymore. You and I, we're not asking members of Congress to eliminate the incandescent light bulb because apparently it kills people. They're going through our homes. They're eliminating all kinds of appliances. Any government that has the power to eliminate a light bulb has no limits on its power. And so what this party does is every waking hour of its leadership is to try and destroy the status quo, destroy our traditions, destroy our customs, destroy real law and order, particularly in our communities, as they empower and centralize the police state. If people want to really understand... Let me just say this to you, Charlie. There was a great review done by Thomas Lifson of the American Thinker, founder of the American Thinker.
Mark Levin: You Can Thank William Barr for David Weiss
"He could be a throwaway. You know, okay, that's not all for US attorney that's what he's thinking. But they have to keep saying that. And yet the man's actions demonstrate that here's the thing. On the one hand, Garland and his troops say we don't report to Biden. We're America's Department of Justice, not for not for the Democrat Party and not for Biden. And yet the media keeps saying, oh, Weiss was a Trump appointee, as if he's doing Trump's bidding. Just damnable and stupid. Thomas Massie, really good with Merrick Garland. Cut eight, go. Now in that video, that was your answer to this question to me two years ago. This is about Ray Epps, the infamous Ray Epps, who was charged with one misdemeanor, despite the fact that everybody sees him on video, encouraging people to charge into the Capitol building. And for some reason, the same Department of Justice, the same group of judges that cabal Washington, in DC, are putting people in prison, in prison for a hell of a lot less. A misdemeanor charge for trespass for Mr. Epps.
Leo Terrell: AG Merrick Garland Avoids Telling the Truth
"Listen I'm not sitting here telling you Leo that if you're a conservative and you commit a crime you should be given a pass it's not what I'm saying I'm simply suggesting to you and I think you'd agree being a civil rights attorney that the idea of blind justice is that everybody's treated equally you screw something up here are the penalties and the penalties are the same for both people if they did the same thing with the same conditions but that's not what happens Leo you know it I mean BLM and Antifa you know burning down attacking courthouses people nothing happened to them at all yeah you look at the you know the January 6 people find themselves in the gulag I mean this has to be deeply impactful to a guy like you whose whole life's been dedicated to civil rights it's hurtful because you want to treat everybody equally and then you know the Democratic Party has abandoned the whole concept of what Dr. King said you judge people by their character not by the skin and ever since the 2020 riots Dan that has been abandoned by the left and the Democrats and by Merrick Garland I've been practicing law for 30 years I think second place would know what I know the law and when I hear Merrick Garland during this hearing today say I don't recall know what he's saying I'm not going to tell you the truth I'm not going to tell you when you hear that phrase I don't recall I don't are you kidding me I know that phrase everyone every good lawyer knows that phrase There's pride to avoid answering the truth but I'm going to tell you something Dan CNN and MSNBC they're abandoning Joe Biden guess what they're covering the congressional hearing so the message is getting out now Dan remember it used to just be one or two stations they're now covering it they're now what's happening in that congressional hearings and I'll tell you right now everyone in this country knows that President Trump has been treated unfairly it's a double standard if you're a conservative it's a double standard talk about that Virginia parent who whose daughter was assaulted talk about the man who was charged facing those charges on the abortion clinics in
Julie Kelly: Making Sense of the J6 Case Against Ray Epps
"To check it out, but only if you want honest journalism you want She's not your gal so Julie you know a lot about this case, and I I'm I kind I of mean that me I know I was being sarcastic in that open, but you know every and every bit of sarcasm is a little element The truth of that makes it. I think a little humorous is I don't know where we are, but Ray apps I mean we were told again that January 6 was the Pearl Harbor of our time We've got a guy you know literally not figuratively on tape talking about we Need to go into the Capitol conservatives like you and I start asking questions like hey You know it wasn't a good idea to Disguised incentivize him to do it and all of a sudden ray apps is a hero in the media, but can you Make any sense to you um it does not but to answer your According to the corporate media and people like Adam Kinzinger who to your point everyone involved Even remotely involved even people who weren't there like Henry gay Tario the ex Of -leader the Proud Boys everyone is an insurrectionist a domestic terrorist. They should be thrown in jail, But the key you know tossed for good except for ray apps, so If you listen to how they portray ray apps he is the victim of right -wing Theorists including us and Tucker Carlson that he just wandered there. He was To trying help police he wasn't instigating anything except and we have all the video evidence to the contrary. You know it was fascinating there's a hearing going on right now House Judiciary Committee and General Merrick Garland is there one of the Democrats is playing this video montage of January 6 and pops who up at the very first exterior breach point ray apps, but we're supposed to believe That he's only guilty
Sen. Tom Cotton: Dems Want to Prop Biden up by Taking Trump Down
"Washington DC has done the day before the Super Tuesday primaries. And that's because they know that Joe Biden is so weak, he's run our economy, That that he's not mentally fit to be president. And the only way they may be able to prop him up is to criminally charge not just the former president, Mark, that's bad enough. That's banana republic kind of stuff. Donald But Trump is also the leading candidate of the opposition party. That is really banana republic style operation. That's something you see in Brazil or Pakistan or other countries, not in America. And again, this is a very dangerous precedent that that water is already crossing the bridge, though. And we should not be surprised to see Republican Attorney General or Republican VAs, for instance, who have had Hunter Biden or Jim Biden or even Joe Biden passed through their jurisdictions at some point in recent years, looking for opportunities to charge them with crimes, just as these Democratic have prosecutors looked at Donald Trump much like Stalin's chief of secret police once said, show me the man and I'll find you the crime. Yeah, there's an interesting piece, Senator, by Byron York in the Washington Examiner the other day, any quote to see fight a is the language of the unheard. On February 7, 2022, Senator Tom Cotton, a member of the Judiciary Committee, wrote a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland. It was about the case of Ron Leslie, a Rochester, Minnesota man sentenced to 10 years in prison for setting a fire that killed a man during Black Lives Matter riot in Minneapolis. Remember this case? And you remember what the Department of Justice said while you were so upset about it? No, I remember it very well. This is during the BLM riots of 2020. Many of your listeners may remember this terrible tragedy where a building was set fire and it killed a man who was inside. It is a murder. This is not alluding, Mark. This is not
Sen. Tom Cotton: Why Dems Are Relying on the 14th Amendment
"14th Amendment. The 14th Amendment says that if you committed insurrection or rebellion against the United States, you're not eligible for federal office. This is written in the aftermath of the Civil War. It was used then to ensure that unreconstructed Confederates could never serve in federal office again. Obviously, it doesn't apply today. Donald Trump hasn't been convicted of much less even charged with insurrection. And we all know that if Jack Smith, the rabid zealot that Merrick Garland appointed prosecute to Donald Trump could have charged insurrection. Obviously, he would have. But now got you've Democrats in places like Colorado who are talking about unilaterally through partisan officers state like a Secretary of State or Attorney General removing Donald Trump from the ballot in those states. This is a very, very dangerous road to go down. And I would suggest to the Democrats as I have from the very beginning about Donald Trump. And for that matter, any other Republican they don't like, they're going to take him at the ballot box. You know, it's amazing, Senator, you make great points. On the one hand, they say he's the easiest to beat. On the other hand, they're doing everything they can to bury him alive. What do you make of 91 charges? really different, one, two, I guess five different grand juries. Democrat DAs, you have a Democrat regime special counsel. All the juries will be up made of largely anti -Trump Democrats. The judges are largely anti -Trump Democrats, not all but most pretty bad, don't you think? Again, Mark, it gets back to the point about trying to stop Donald Trump by means other than simply defeating him at the ballot because Democrats the could have pursued these
A highlight from The 110-Year War
"Full disclaimer, I will be watching NFL football tonight. I don't like it. They're a little too wokey for me. I just like football too much. I think it's the Chiefs and the Lions. Don't sleep on the Lions everybody. I'll tell you, they want it bad. So as tonight NFL football begins and it is the kickoff, if you will, of the NFL season. There's also another kickoff. You know, we asked Charlie, what about the 2024 election? The 2024 election is about a year and a way. No, no, no, it's happening right now, obviously. But there's a very, very important fight looming in real time right now. I believe it is the opening kick of the 2024 election. It's 930, September 30th. The federal government needs to pass a short -term funding bill by September 30th or there will be a government shutdown. Now, you may or may not remember this, but you remember about a year and a half ago, there was a massive bill that was passed, a huge bill, not a year. It was voted on by Senator Shelby from Alabama. He was the chief person who brought this forward where they basically robbed the House of Representatives, the incoming class. It was about 10 months ago of their ability to negotiate the budget, where they kicked it all the way to this date, September 30th. So the federal government needs to pass a short -term funding bill by September 30th. The Biden regime is asking that in addition to all the normal stuff, that Congress adds $44 billion on top of that in emergency spending, $16 billion for FEMA, $24 billion for Ukraine, on top of the $200 billion already spent on Ukraine. But the most important thing is this, is that we're seeing in real time the destruction, the erosion, the shredding of the United States Constitution. We see Jack Smith, an out -of -control rogue prosecutor, Merrick Garland, the Department of Justice. We see the number one political opponent to the regime who is beating him in the polls. Fact, he's beating him in the polls, whether they're truth polls or not. It's just fact, he's beating him in the polls, facing 500 years in federal prison. Many people are asking, Charlie, what can we do? What can we do? What can we do? How do we fight? How do we push back against? How do we fight? The 30th of September is a day where we can fight. It's a day where we can draw a line in the sand and we can defund the deep state. We have the House of Representatives. We have a majority. Now, I'm going to say something that is a little bit not unpopular, but it's different. I fully support the impeachment of Joe Biden. In fact, we should have done it three or four months ago. But I actually think defunding these agencies should be a bigger priority than the impeachment of Joe Biden. I'm not saying that we shouldn't impeach Joe Biden, but I actually think a more effective way to make long -lasting change, a more effective way to use the political power that the people gave the Republican majority is to defang the tyrants, is to go after these agencies. Now, let's play this out for a second. Joe Biden is a traitor to the nation. So I think that we should pass a clean impeachment resolution, send it to the Senate. But I don't think we should spend too much time on it. I think that's a very valuable time to go and impeach and investigate a guy that we already know who is an outright criminal. He's a traitor. He should be in Gitmo in federal prison for the rest of his life, as is his son. But does that have long -lasting change? Wouldn't it be more effective to tell the FBI you don't get your new building? You have to reduce your headcount by 20 or 30 percent. Tell the Department of Defense you're not allowed to have gay poems on aircraft carriers anymore, that trans whatever individuals are not going to be allowed in the military. Isn't this a more effective way? And the most important one that's obviously staring us in the face, Department of Justice. Are we going to keep on funding Merrick Garland? Will we have the leverage and we have the ability to say no? Now, the bad guys, the Democrats and the Uniparty Republicans, they want a clean resolution, a clean CR. Well, time out here. Hold on. You guys are going after every potential political dissident. Steve Bannon, 1 ,200 January 6 defendants. You're weaponizing the entire government and we're sitting there and taking it. And we've been saying on this program time and time again, well, where are the Republican AGs? Answer, not around. Not interested in doing anything bold or courageous. Where are the Republican DAs? They're not interested. They do not want to do anything bold or courageous. So how do we end this abuse? Now, understand this is not standard politics. This is a crisis. And in a crisis, we should act differently than we normally do. The one way we have to actually act at a federal level is for the House not to fund what Biden needs. So directly focus on five or six. Don't ask for the whole world. You're not going to get the world. But identify five or six of the Soviet Gestapo pressure points of the regime. Star of the beast. All funding must start in the House, period. Nothing the Biden regime does can happen without the House GOP offering up money for them to do it. Now, we should not fund a single dollar to Ukraine. But if we're thinking realistically, they're going to figure out some way to get Ukrainian funding. So if we were smart, we'd say, OK, they really want Ukraine funding. Use that as leverage then. Say, OK, so you really want Ukraine funding. Then there has to be border wall, border security. But more important than all of that, it is the lack of funding that we have to draw the line on. You don't get Jack Smith. You want Zelensky? No Jack Smith. And they'll say, well, you're going to shut down the government. OK. You want Zelensky? No Jack Smith. That's a popular position. And by the way, if you pick the fights, you can win. Majority of people are not in favor of the criminalization of Donald Trump. Jack Smith is the bright line. No Jack Smith, period. Jack Smith and his entire operation. Now, this is an interesting question, Blake and the team. Is Jack Smith an essential government worker or not if there was a shutdown? If we shut down the government, does that mean that Jack Smith and his team would still be operating? Now, again, one of the most frustrating things we go through every time there's a government shutdown is all of a sudden they say, well, these are essential and not essential government workers. If they're not essential, why do they have jobs? If they're not essential, why do they operate? Now, under Bob Mueller, when Bob Mueller was a special counsel, his office continued to work in the event of a government shutdown. OK, but even beyond a government shutdown, we need to defund Jack Smith, line item Jack Smith, carve it out and say, Jack Smith, you do not get another penny of U .S. taxpayer dollars, period. That's a good way to end Jack Smith. And the House Republicans have the entire ability to do that. We need to find the parts of the deep state that are grinding the American people to a halt. And it goes to the FBI, the DOJ, DHS, isolate them and starve that beast. And you're not going to get the entire budget down to zero. So get even more particular. Again, Congress, they don't do their job, unfortunately. So find Jack Smith's budget, which by the way, Jack Smith's budget is probably like $15 million. Like maybe, maybe, maybe like $9 million. And you could say in the funding resolution, you're done. Your team no longer authorized. These agencies have to go to Congress for money. And on the 30th of September, it is all bubbling up. Matt Gaetz and Andy Ogles have introduced similar pieces of legislation to deny federal funding for the special counsel. This is the line, everybody. We will not put up with our funding, our money to a Democrat super PAC, which is what Jack Smith has become. Jack Smith is a Democrat super PAC operator with subpoena power and the ability to put people in prison with handcuffs. Shut down the government over this, over the very specific principled stand. You go after Donald Trump and try to put him in 500 years in federal prison. The government's getting shut down. That would be hardball. I want to tell you guys about Good Ranchers.

A highlight from All GOP Presidential Candidates Should Suspend Their Campaigns And Support Trump
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is The Mike Gallagher Show. Even when everything you say makes sense except it's all bullshit. It's all non -stop. We know this is designed to banish and isolate and to destroy a political outsider. That's the funny thing about this Democrat party. It does hate America. It's hated America since its founding. Voters decide who our presidents are. Not district attorneys, not big donors, not anchors, not pundits, not lawyers. Voters decide. Now from the relieffactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. The voters get to decide. And the voters are going to decide. I'm convinced of that. If not, my country is gone. Welcome aboard. It's Wednesday. I was reading this morning about the Fulton County Sheriff's Department and how the sheriff says, oh, they're all going to get booked and processed. Trump and the 18 other indicted co -conspiracers. There's going to be this three -ring circus next week, a week from Friday, where President Trump and Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell and all the rest of them are going to get booked and processed like common criminals at the Fulton County Jail. There's one goal there. You know what it is. It's to embarrass. It's to intimidate. It is to attack a guy that more than half the country loves. And every attempt to embarrass him is going to result in his popularity increasing. Every effort to embarrass him is going to result in greater popularity for President Trump. I had a No Interruptions podcast that dropped this morning. Wherever you get your podcasts, I hope you subscribe to The Mike Gallagher Show No Interruptions podcast. It's really special because we present two points of view without any interrupting. You know, there's a lot of interrupting with Mark Davis this morning. You'll hear it today, the Eminem experience. Mark and I disagreed mightily about my belief that if Ron DeSantis and all the other Republican candidates would simply throw their support behind Trump right now, drastic times call for drastic measures. Jack Smith and Fannie Willis and all the rest of them, Biden's Justice Department, Merrick Garland, they want to destroy your ability to elect the next president of the United States. They're what an amazing, inspirational move it would be if Governor DeSantis said, you know what, I'll try again in twenty twenty eight. But right now I'm all in for Trump. I can't believe they've weaponized the Justice Department this way. It cannot stand. It will not stand. I'm in for Trump. And first of all, DeSantis becomes the single most popular politician in the history of America. His twenty twenty eight landslide would be guaranteed. Second of all, Trump's election in twenty twenty four would almost certainly be guaranteed. These Republicans could unify and have the opportunity to turn this whole thing around just like that. Now, it's not going to happen. I'm sure I'm delusional, perhaps. But man, oh, man, what a game changer that would be. And Mark Davis, boy, he went off on me. He just thinks I'm crazy, delusional. I don't want to let voters vote. I'm Hugo Chavez. I'm Venezuela. He kept arguing with me today that I'm trying to take away the right to vote. I said, Mark, that's precisely what Biden's Justice Department is trying to do. Don't you get it? And for Mark and people who feel the way Mark feels, it's just business as usual. Let's let it all play out. Let's have the primaries. Let's have the debates. Oh, next week. OK, let's get our popcorn out. There'll be a lot of drama, but that's OK. It'll all sort itself out. It's not going to sort itself out. People are going to have to stand up and and do things they would have never considered doing before. And I believe that would include Republicans unifying behind Trump. It could be a pipe dream, but then again, hey, it's 2023. Anything is possible. So back to this no interruptions podcast, a back and forth. This week's no interruptions podcast was between Caroline Wren, who's the former finance adviser for Trump, his Trump Victory Finance Committee. She's also been working with Carrie Lake and David Carlucci, who's a Democrat strategist and a former Democrat New York state senator. And we debated election integrity. Caroline said something and there's no interruptions. First of all, make sure you check out this podcast. Again, subscribe to The Mike Gallagher Show, no interruptions podcast wherever you get your podcast. You're going to want to hear this one. Again, no back and forth, no crosstalk, no interference. You get to hear both points of you uninterrupted. But Caroline explain why there is so much doubt about the integrity of the 2020 election. And so I wanted to lift that cut. I want to play that clip for you from yesterday's pot for this week's podcast. I want you to hear why millions of us are cynical about the outcome of the 2020 election. I don't think I've ever heard anybody in just a minute and seconds 54 so perfectly summarize the problems of the 2020 election and why we have so much doubt. I want to play that for you coming up here in the Relief Factor Studios. I also want to invite you to join us, 800 -655 -MIKE. We've also been taking a poll, The Birch Gold Survey at MikeOnline .com.

Our number is 800 -655 -MIKE. And if you want to beat me up a little bit like Mark Davis did this morning, that I'm crazy and delusional over whether or not it would be a good thing for all the Republican candidates to endorse Trump now. You think that's nuts? We'll see. And wait till you hear what Caroline Wren says about election integrity, 2020 style. 800 -655 -6453. We have a line open and ready just for you.

Rep. Steve Scalise: Where Are the Charges Against Stacey Abrams?
"Attorney generals in some of those states too. You know, we're going to keep getting facts out, and you see, you Jim Jordan's committee, as this thing moves closer to impeachment inquiry, because the facts all that we've of gotten out is actually forced the White House to change their tune. Remember for months, I mean months, a Korean Jean Pierre would sit up there at the podium and, you know, and say, oh, don't worry, tell him this false statement that President Biden never talked about business dealings with Hunter. They said that over and over and over again until we disproved it with some of Hunter Biden's associates who said not only did he do it, he did it over 20 times. He was doing phone calls. He was going to dinner with some And of them. then lo and behold, the White House changes its tune just a few days ago and says he was never in business. That's a huge change. And the reason that change happened is because we had hearings that brought these whistleblowers forward who countered what the White House was saying. The White House was flat out lying to the American people. And now there people are in these agencies and the people who are in business with Hunter Biden exposing the facts. There are more of those people that are coming forward. And we're going to continue even during this break in August to have those hearings and bring those whistleblowers forward. Who knows what they'll do. You know, they'll go throw more stuff at Trump to try to divert you away from it. But people are watching this. People have figured out how to get this information even. I mean, frankly, the mainstream media is actually starting to cover some of it, not nearly to the degree that they go after Trump, but even they can't avoid some of this stuff because it's so bad. We only have a minute, Steve Scalise, a quick question. Have you ever seen a more corrupt attorney general in your life? No. And remember that was the this guy that Barack Obama presented as this great moderate to replace Scalia on the bench, for God's sake. Merrick Garland was going to be the moderate to replace Scalia. Don't forget that. And thank God didn't that happen. And Donald Trump, when he ran, he put that

Well, hey, look, on the bright side, this will keep Republicans at bay. And here's one upside of David Weiss won't testify. Of course, this is a cover up attempt by Merrick Garland. It's so transparent that anyone can see right through it. But doesn't that mean it's not bad news for Biden. This is a bad news cycle for Joe Biden, I assure you.

"To the point of what we saw yesterday with all these whistleblower disclosures dropped. Here it is. My other question, yesterday whistleblower testimony came out from an IRS supervisory special agent, current supervisory special agent who insists he was in a meeting with US Attorney David Weiss, who in October 2022 claimed in front of multiple people that he was told not to pursue the Hunter Biden investigation, not to bring charges in 2022. You said previously you've stayed out of the Hunter Biden investigation. It's been on David Weiss to figure that out. Can you once and for all shed a little light? There seems to be a little confusion on what's going on here. I'd be happy to. As I said at the outset, Mr. Weiss, who was appointed by President Trump as the US Attorney in Delaware and assigned this matter during the previous administration, would be permitted to continue his investigation and to make a decision to prosecute any way in which he wanted to and in any district in which he wanted to. Mr. Weiss has since sent a letter to the House Judiciary Committee confirming that he had that authority. I don't know how it would be possible for anybody to block him from bringing a prosecution, given that he has this authority. And he was never told no. I'm saying he was given complete authority to make all decisions on his own. Let me play that last part again. A prosecution, given that he has this authority. Question? And he was never told no. Non -answer. I'm saying he was given complete authority to make all decisions on his own. That's not an answer. That's not the answer. That is not the answer to that question. And of course, we all know he was. So you know, I mean, this again, this is not calculus. We all read the transcript yesterday. John Solomon today. The top 10 bombshells from the IRS whistleblower testimony. Number one, prosecutors resisted IRS efforts to ramp up the investigation before the election. Number two, DOJ repeatedly squashed search warrants. Number three, Shapley and his team never managed to interview Hunter Biden nor any other Biden. Number four, prosecutors limited

"Decision. They do make the decision of whether to make an arrest. Keep someone know they don't. Now, it's such malarkey and there's Ted Cruz holding, can you put that statute up on the screen for me Yuri on Salem news channel so I can read that just freeze frame it for me because senator Cruz has the statute, which is the U.S. from the U.S. Military from the U.S. code 1507 under picketing or parading. Listen to this. Whoever, with the intent of influencing any judge, juror witness or court officer in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror witness or court officer shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year or both. Merrick Garland has no intention of prosecuting people who are harassing and intimidating and threatening the lives of the Supreme Court, the conservatives on the Supreme Court I should say and their children. He just doesn't. And we all know it. This is intentional. This isn't accidental. This is intentional. There's a woman who has been on Fox News this week who lost two of her children to fentanyl overdoses. And Marjorie Taylor Greene, the controversial congresswoman from Georgia, suggested that the children might be alive if the Biden administration did a better job of securing the border. Marjorie Taylor Greene's. In artful position. And it's only in artful because these sons died prior to Biden being elected. Okay? So technically it's not correct. For Marjorie Taylor Greene, to blame Biden's open border policies on the death of these two sons. But at the very least, you wouldn't mock it, right? You wouldn't you wouldn't laugh it off if you're President Biden, right? You would take this seriously. It's a very serious issue. Garland also testified yesterday that the fentanyl crisis is being delivered to the United States and our kids are dying and our citizens are suffering because of the Mexican drug cartels. That's according to the attorney general himself, Merrick Garland. So we have a border crisis that is directly resulting in the deaths of Americans. Listen to Biden joking about what Marjorie Taylor Greene raised regarding the issue of border security or lack thereof. She was very specific recently saying that a mom, a poor mother who lost two kids to fentanyl that I killed her sons. Well, the interesting thing is that fentanyl they took came during the last administration. Jerry the chuckle? I think that's funny. The mom didn't. We're going to play her response. She posted a video on Facebook. Her name is Rebecca keesling her 20 year old son Caleb and her 18 year old son Kyler, both died in July of 2020 after taking percocet that wound up being laced with fentanyl. And her reaction on Facebook is one that I want to share with you. Because it's the reaction we should all have. Do you believe that this damage is being done intentionally? I mean, can I connect these dots for a moment with you? And you correct me if I'm wrong here. If you don't agree with this, you let me know. We have an open border. We got millions of illegals pouring across our southern border. The attorney general yesterday confirms in fact, enthusiastically suggests that the fentanyl crisis in America is happening because of the Mexican drug cartels, not Scandinavian drug cartels, not even Canadian drug cartels, Mexican drug cartels are driving fentanyl into the United States. We know the condition of our southern border, right? Isn't this intentional? Is it goofy? Is it a conspiracy theory? Am I crazy to ask out loud? Are they doing this intentionally? Are they truly trying to destroy America and kill Americans and take American lives? The Democrats, that is? One 806 5 5 mic, one open line, 806 5 5 6 four 5 three.

Help me understand how U.S. taxpayers paying for pensions in Ukraine is a good idea for our country. Vice President Biden afraid of China. The president is not afraid of Trump. I am tired of words. If my Republican colleagues think that some of us are just going to go along for the ride. They are sorely mistaken. No, from the relief factor dot com studios. Here's Mike Gallagher. Our audience continually reminds me that what's happening to America feels like destruction by design by the Democrats. And I know that sounds to some to be a conspiracy theory, but things are happening that are so blatantly obvious that it's hard to come to any other conclusion. Look at the refusal of the Justice Department to enforce the law against trying to harass or intimidate a shitting Supreme Court Justice. Ever since roe V wade was overturned, the justices have endured protests outside their home. Clearly an attempt to intimidate and even threaten one guy was going to murder. Justice Kavanaugh, remember him? All over roe V wade. And yesterday, senator Ted Cruz went on an epic rant. He had Merrick Garland in front of him at a hearing where the attorney general was testifying on Capitol Hill. Listen to the way U.S. senator Ted Cruz unloaded on Merrick Garland over the refusal of his Justice Department to enforce the law against these protests outside the Supreme Court Justices private homes. Has the department of justice brought even a single case under the statute. So yes, no question. It's not a give a speech on the other things you did. The job of the United States Marshals is to defend the lives of the answer is no. It's a defend the lives of the justices and that's our number one priority. They have. Are you unwilling to say no? The answer is no. You know it's no, I know it's no everyone in this hearing room knows it's no, you're not willing to answer a question. Have you brought a case under this statute? Yes or no. Bars, I know we haven't and what we have done is defended to the lies of the justices. So how many U.S. Marshals? How do you decide which criminal statutes the DoJ enforces and which one it doesn't? The United States Marshals know that they have full I recognize you want to give a separate speech. No, I don't want to. I want you to decide which statute you enforce and which ones you don't. But Marshall's on scene make that determination in light of the priority of the Marshals did not make a determination over whether to prosecute you, the attorney general make a determination and you spent 20 years as a judge and you're perfectly content with justices being afraid for their children's lives and you did nothing to prosecute it. Let's do it. Can I answer the question? No, you can not refuse to answer the answering your questions. I don't need Jack does not decide whether to answer. How did you choose not to enforce this statute? The Marshalls I'm seeing. Don't make that.

"Out. So just keep an open mind that what we got on the books is not working. Now, I'm sitting there waiting for Lindsey Graham or the other members of the committee to start grilling him about the Mexican drug cartels, delivery system into the United States. You think Mexican drug cartels are delivering fentanyl by way of Canada? I think they're going up north. Or do you think it's a border security problem? All of this to me is so easily connected to the crisis of border security. That's a crisis. We don't have a broken immigration system. We have a broken border. And these are not serious people who want to deal with this seriously. This is not a serious response to this crisis. I mean, it's incredible to me. It's absolutely astounding to me that we're watching people in real time stick their head in the sand and pretend this isn't a border crisis. Here's Merrick Garland admitting we got a disaster in this country with fentanyl. I had to look in the eyes of loving parents who had to lay their child to rest, I saw the anguish on their faces where they tried everything. And they got the cause of death well after the funeral, it was fentanyl. Now, one would think that an American president, like Joe Biden, would be deeply concerned about this. I want to share with you how concerned he is. Now, you know, there's this narrative that we're supposed to believe that Donald Trump is this coarse crude guy. He doesn't care about people. He stiffs the little guy. He's a narcissist. He's a meanie. He picks on Rosie O'Donnell on Twitter. You know, he's a mean guy. But Joe Biden, on the other hand, is loving and caring and thoughtful and kind and compassionate. He has restored civility to the United States, we're in such better hands with Joe Biden. I want you to hear just how kind and compassionate Joe Biden really is. She's very specific recently saying that a mom, a poor mother who lost two kids to fentanyl that I killed her sons. Well, the interesting thing is that fentanyl they took came during the last administration. Well, that's funny. That's a real chuckle. That's a real chuckle. That's, I mean, do you take responsibility for anything on your watch, Joe Biden? You think this is a laughing matter? I dare you to laugh in front of my friends who buried their child. A few months ago. Come speak to the memorial service that I attended. For this precious child who was smart and funny and intelligent and inquisitive and loving who adored his family, who loved his sisters who adored his mom and dad. And who evidently accidentally got fentanyl into his system. And Biden thinks this is funny. I don't even know who he's talking about. Derek gave me that clip. Who's she? Who's the she he's talking about? I don't know if it's somebody a reporter, I guess. I don't know. I always a Marjorie Taylor Greene, I guess. So, and that's fine. It's low hanging fruit for the Democrats to criticize these sharp elbowed Republicans like Marjorie Taylor Greene. But there's nothing funny about this. We're looking around right now at a country where in Oregon, they're getting ready to give a $1000 a month to homeless people to spend to use any way they want. A $1000 a month to a homeless person in the streets of Oregon. That's the Democrat solution. That's the Democrat solution. We're continuing to pour good money down the drain. Our money. After bad..

In the relief factor dot com studios. Here's Mike. Do you know that they thoroughly debunked that the train derailment in each to palace each Palestinian had anything to do with any of Trump's rollback of safety regulations? Washington Post called out joy behar and that entire dastardly lie that it was Trump's fault. It's always Trump's fault. Everything's Trump's fault. Fentanyl is Trump's fault. That's what Biden said. You just can't make this up. And as The Washington Post chronicled of all places, this has nothing to do. The actual cause of the train derailment in east Palestinian was not impacted in any way, shape or form by any of the Trump policies. They just lie. They instinctively blame Trump because it's what they do. This portion of our show brought to you by fellowship home loans, call 805 ten micro go to fellowship home loans dot com slash Mike G welcome home, fellowship home loans. This is difficult issue for me because I've experienced sort of firsthand dear Friends who had to bury their child because of a fentanyl overdose. I saw lady on TV yesterday who was interviewed her son thought he was taken a percocet. And the percocet was laced with fentanyl and the kid died. They're poisoning our kids. They're poisoning Americans. And according to attorney general Merrick Garland, the Mexican drug cartels. He's very specific. The Mexican drug cartels are doing it. And I got to share this with you. And try not to lose my temper or lose my cool. But this to me is infuriating. Listen to the attorney general yesterday being grilled by senator Lindsey Graham. Fentanyl, deaths are more than gun and accident deaths combined in the United States. Did you know that? Yes, sir. I mean, this is, how would you describe the fentanyl problem in America? A horrible epidemic. But it's an epidemic that's been unleashed on purpose by the Sinaloa. And the new generation of jalisco cartels. Let's just stop and absorb that for a moment. The so horrible epidemic, it kills more people than car wrecks in gun violence combined, and the question is, what are we going to do about it? Under current law, fentanyl loses its schedule one status by the end of the year. You oppose that I assume. I certainly do. Fentanyl all fentanyl related drugs should be scheduled. It mandatory minimums for people dealing in fentanyl. I think we already have mandatory minimums for people. Do you think they should be increased? I think we have more than enough ability now to attack this problem. Well, would you agree with me whatever we have is not working? Well, we're doing is not working. I agree with that because of the number of deaths that you pointed.

"DoJ won a battle to get full testimony from pat cipollone and pat philbin to former White House counsel who had raised some sort of executive privilege objection. Now, Trump may well appeal that. But of course, the bigger development is that two weeks ago, Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel, which is a former federal prosecutor, a guy named Jack Smith, who now will take charge of the investigation, make the initial recommendation about whether to indict or not, but ultimately it comes back to Merrick Garland who has to make that sort of very difficult comes up down decision. So I've been talking to some people, including some lawyers, some people like you came out of the assistant U.S. attorney's office, but then some of the district in New York, who say that that doesn't really accomplish much of anything, because you just say it comes back to Merrick Garland anyway. So what did Merrick Carlin get done by appointing the special counsel? Merrick Garland got himself a heat shield. He got himself deflection and political insulation. And I don't necessarily say that as a bad thing. I think it now enables him to say, look, here's what the rules say, and we know Merrick Garland is very much a rules follower. The rules around special counsel say, if there's a conflict of interest, then you can bring in special counsel and Garland's argument is, well, when Donald Trump announced his candidacy, that took us into new territory where you could have a conflict of interest because then you have these likely opponent or one of his likely opponents Joe Biden's Department of Justice investigating Donald Trump. So that's the sort of rationale behind it, but then it says the special counsel has to run his big decisions, including whether to indict by the AG, but the AG must give quote great weight to what the special counsel wants to do. So Merrick Garland gives him an easier way to say, well, Jack Smith did his job, came to me and said, I do or do not want to indict. And unless there's some irregularity, which I think is unlikely Garland can say, well, then I followed what the law says. I gave his determination, quote, great weight, and I deferred to him. So it gives Garland a bit of insulation and it gives him a little bit of a heat shield. And also, as I understand it, I believe at least that the grand jury, they're trying to get the evidence from the January 6th committee, special committee in the House to be given over to the grand jury. They have access to all that, which is voluminous. It appears. Yeah, there's a lot of evidence there's been an interesting little back and forth where DoJ has been for this evidence for months, and the January 6th committee is being a little closed fisted. They've been parceling it out piece by piece. And they haven't given it all over. We know that because Merrick Garland made a public statement to days ago where in response to one of the questions he said something like we're hoping to get all of the evidence. So we could use it in our criminal investigation. It is all evidence that can be at least considered by DoJ. The indicators now though are now that the January 6th committee is wrapping up and its final week several committee members said

"U.S. attorney general Merrick Garland coming out very strongly in defense of his people regarding the story and the search of Mar-a-Lago. He has had Baxter. He has global news. Yeah, rich, thank you, Garland, says he's asked a judge to unseal the warrant, joining us live as Bloomberg's mark and the cat Bloomberg national politics reporter. Mark, this is unusual circumstance. First of this search warrant on a former president of the United States and now the attorney general coming out basically and saying, you lay your hands, don't lay any hands verbally on my people. Right, it's very unusual for the Justice Department to speak about an ongoing investigation. They usually let their core to actions speak for them. But Merrick Garland, I think, was more or less forced into saying something because Donald Trump and his Republican supporters were portraying that search at his Mar-a-Lago resort as some kind of politically motivated attack on him. That was unwarranted. So Merrick Garland essentially gave a press conference a statement today saying he didn't take this decision lightly to personally agreed to seek the search warrant to look for the documents the records are looking for at Mar-a-Lago. Any defended his agents for doing their jobs essentially against the attacks from Trump and Republicans. So that we all understand. He is bound to not release the contents of the warrant. That's why he's asked the judge to open it. Donald Trump, though, is in possession of it and can release it and intimation that probably things in it that Trump doesn't want to make public. That's exactly right, Ed. In fact, Trump also has the ability to object to the unsealing of the search warrant if you want judge gave Trump until 3 o'clock eastern tomorrow to object to the unsealing. So the ball is kind of in Donald Trump's court now and Merrick Garland has kind of calling his bluff that this search of his Mar-a-Lago home was unjustified. Yeah, and this is, as you say, and we have about 30 seconds Mark, but responding to criticism, both from Trump and from right-wing commentators and the like, correct? Right. I mean, there's sort of portraying this as overreached by the government or attacks from Democrats all bent on trying to keep Trump from running again in 2024 as you see. All right. Mark, thank you so much for your time. Really appreciate it. Mark nikkei's political national correspondent to Bloomberg in San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg to Hong Kong, Brian.

Eight seven seven nine seven eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five. Well you know what are the fun things about the show particularly now. I'm that i'm doing a new three live. I know somebody listened on delay but the news happened so much this time of day that like for example i wanted to spend some time this coordinated campaign against facebook. If you saw major newspapers stay almost every single. One of them had a front page story attacking facebook and i'll get there but something else has happened. Merrick garland has gone to the united states. Senate i need to set the stage for you on this story. So that you know about it The national school board association sent a letter to merrick garland calling for a fbi investigation into parents showing up at school boards. These school board association claimed that Parents were being threatened and bully or they were threatening and they were bullying they were harassing. They were threatening. They were domestic. Terrorists and merrick garland the attorney. General of the united states bit formed a task force to investigate parents as domestic terrorists. Except there's a side. The story we did not know at the time turns out the head of the national association of school boards coordinated with the biden white house the daily caller ross that they got the thorough foia. They got a lot of the exchanges in you could see it was the bite administration that actually helped prepare the letter included certain language including wanting to call parents. Domestic terrorists was the biting administration. That did this. In the national association of school boards worked with them on drafting. The letter incentive. To merrick garland. Now we know that the board never approved it. The national associate scores their board never proved it now. We know that the executive director of the ceo of the organization has been appointed by joe biden to serve in some capacity it was all coordinated with the by demonstration to make parents look like terrorists and we know this now. We know it was the bite administration. That did this. We know the board did not sign off on it. There was a big explosion. A lot of State school associations walked away for the national associate. School boards demand apologies in members of the board. Have come out and said we had no idea. We didn't approve this. So now the attorney general is before the united states senate. Today i wish to play for you..

"Make this point enough now. That biden is in when trump was in power when that administration was in power. They did all autocrats. Did which is conduct massive purges of anybody that could stop them within any institution. That may hold them accountable. This included pershing for example the russian mafia experts within the fbi and included. Purging the doj. And anybody who is going to put country above party country above trump constitution above all else and so the doj is still filled. We presume we don't get updates from the you know. But there's no reason not to believe it's not still substantially employed by trump and bar latkes and they need to be removed. We saw so many illegitimate appointments during trump's tenure. We saw a slew of nepotism appointment. We've documented those in depth. I mean to bars. Children were serving in the administration. I believe still are serving in that administration. The other thing we warned you about. Of course autocrats. Pack the courts. Those are the two being moves. You purge the institutions and you pack the courts so that you rewrite the law so you are no longer a breaking it you give yourself immunity from all crimes. That is supposed to end when the aspiring autocrat departs and so the fact that this is continuing under the protection of doj it does indicate something very dark. And i think some of it is the fact that trump administration latkes are still in there. I think some of this is that the doj is a deeply corrupt and broken institution. That has had deeply corrupt and broken people. Working in high positions of power in it for my entire life in among them is bill. Barr like as i said before if the doj is to clean house. It's going to run into some very uncomfortable pieces of information here in acts that people have done if they are going to look at what bill barr did during the trump administration. You then have to look at what. Bill barr did during his previous tenure as the ag of the george h w bush administration which would include letting all the iran contra guys off the hook it would include maybe bcci. You'll bars a scandal machine. We were so perplexed when all of these alleged quote unquote legal experts kept saying. Oh he's such institutionalists is going to bring the trump administration in line. Like what the hell are you talking about. This is like the ultimate gop cover up guy. This is a guy who's like wikipedia is just a giant list of scandals or scumbags that he protected because that's his job he goes and cleans up the mess of the gop and that is what he did for trump. And that's now what merrick garland is doing for him. But i want to add one more point to about this as well. Okay one quick point. I want to make. Is that before. I was talking about the democrats in ability to maintain an effective narrative to the public to show the public. What's going on to use the kind of strategies that the gop does very effectively through their propaganda outlets like fox news. One exception to this rule is the merrick garland rule which is the way that they managed to convince an enormous number of americans that if mitch mcconnell does not like merrick garland if the republicans are trying to block merrick garland from the supreme court. Then merrick garland must be great. He must be some amazing advocate for justice. He must just be a man of the utmost integrity. We've clearly seen that. That's not the case but nonetheless like wow what a story. What a narrative. Maybe try doing that with the truth. Anyway andrea what were you gonna say so for a clear answer on whether the raw goes all the way up to biden comma harris and their closest advisors in the team is. Whether merrick garland gets the nazi hunters that the doj so desperately needs and bars. Authoritarian purge is reversed if. That doesn't happen in twenty twenty one than it's confirmation that biden and their whole operation that brought them to power. The core team picked garland intentionally because they wanted. Somebody wouldn't headed enough. That would be easy to control and would do the bare minimum and would look good in a suit and say the right things when called upon and keep his head down and just enjoy himself Doing his his pruning the rose bushes and an pontificating on administrative law and consensus building. That's not how the nation was united in the civil war. We had a ruthless spiritual warrior in you ulysses s grant alright. I'm starting like a comic con for ulysses s grant lovers out there. 'cause i know there's opportunity for one. He did what had to be done. He was ruthless but he did it grounded knowing that he was on the right set of history and that he would ultimately all timidly maybe not initially and all those decades after the war where he was vilified but he knew ultimately that he would be proven correct and he had to do what needed to be done and so please merrick garland biden. Kamala harris. Live your values out loud. Show the american people that you're going to reverse trump in bars authoritarianism of the doj if you do not than his confirmation to us that you like it that way and that you're part of the problem yup exactly and speaking part of the problem. Let's discuss joe mansion. Just amazing week for news here so over the weekend joe manchin officially came out against the for the people act and against abolishing filibuster the for the people act of course is a desperately needed bill to preserve voting rights to preserve democracy especially as the gop continues to destroy voting rights state by state and add new stipulations in some states including the ability to simply throw out your votes on the gop. State legislatures win if their preferred candidate does not win. And so as we have said many times on this show you cannot just vote this problem out. You cannot just wait till twenty twenty to fix this because we will not have free and fair elections in twenty twenty two without voting rights. So when you see people saying oh you know. I know the solution. We just need a democratic supermajority. That literally can't happen. That's what we're trying to fight right now. I don't know how much more i can explain laughing. Because i'm like terrified. It's not funny in the slightest and it definitely should not be hinging upon one or two individuals. Although many people who are experts on this including walter shabaab who is an ethics adviser for multiple administrations and others have pointed out that mentioned and huston cinemas well are basically the rotating villain there the scapegoats to this process. There are other democrats within the senate who are not being vocal but who appear to also opposed the for the people act and the abolishment of the filibuster and so mansion may just be either fog guy. Mansion is also an enormous astle andrei. I think you had some to pissed off who. Yeah so mansion came out with again. All these guys are masters of gas. lighting mansion. Came out with a gas sliding masterpiece in the charleston. Gazette mail where he said he could not support the four. The people act because there wasn't a single backer on the republican side and that bipartisanship is going to destroy our country. How the hell can you have bipartisanship. When one party is full blown proudly authoritarian and inciting political violence against the public and elected officials. So the reason why mansion is able to put such finesse finesse on aiding and abetting authoritarians. And they're hijacking. Our democracy is because he is funded by groups like the us chamber of commerce which is staunchly republican backing and the dark forces that propelled trump in a power. The dark forces that were happy to rake in all this money. Tax cuts deregulation. While trump was in power dismantling our democracy. It's the same. Dark forces are happy to cash..

"Garland serving a court driven by consensus building right again. I'm going to stress. These terms administrative law president consensus building in terms of his own positions as a former doj prosecutor garland tended to be tough on criminals. He's shown in his record sensitivity to press freedom and also dissented against majority opinion. An outspoken rebuke calling out the torture prisoners in the horrific abu ghraib prison. He ruled on insisting the cia disclosed information on their drone killings. He has a track record of showing humanity and standing up to even obama's white house to his judicial record. He did however rule in favor for super pacs. When forced to following the citizens united ruling garland is not an activist liberal ideological judge garland simply does not have the practice to face the challenges. He's up against gibbon his conditioning over the past twenty four years being in a court driven by consensus building focusing largely on administrative law and avoiding controversial cases. What's coming out of the doj. I believe is darker than merrick garland simply being corrupt. I don't believe that this is a classic case of a ukrainian judge for instance who has been given offshore account somewhere new cars or having his family threatened. I think this is a classic case of something. That's plagued humanity throughout history. There's a great book by the historian. Barbara tuchman called the march of folly. On how governments act against their own self interest in part because of simple wooden headedness. That's what we're up against here. It's the wrong person for the wrong job during the wrong i think some of these cases coming out of the g. o. J. that are staggeringly abusive power. They're abusive us tax dollars. I think they indicate either. That trump made a deal and set certain conditions before leaving office or before calling for his protesters to stop violently storming the capital and or the doj has been thoroughly purged by bar and trump and bar. Trump's people are pushing through everything they can and garland isn't the man to stand up to them. 'cause he just doesn't know how he's experienced for last over. Two decades has been anti that. So i think the bigger issue is is that the muscle needed to take on the international crime syndicate that is clearly infiltrated. The doj has atrophied for garland over twenty four years of administrative law consensus building. So it sucks. I do want to add that. Under garland's doj they did bring back federal increase in a police violence. At least they're labeling white supremacy violence as the greatest threat the us faces which the nazi chief obviously did not do in play down for obvious. Reasons garland's doj did achieve the impressive feat of stealing back a lot of the ransom money from the colonial pipeline attack which matters because it helps to other attacks but again it's just the wooden headedness of garland is aiding the legal warfare by the white supremacists so maybe garland gets a sea legs. Adam genton who served as harry. Reid's deputy chief of staff was on the show earlier. This year was saying how you know harry. Reid needed to grow into the role majority leader. That wasn't something that came overnight for him and by the end of his tenure. As as we've celebrated on this show. Harry reid was furiously speaking out calling out. Fbi director james comey refusing to ring the alarm of the national emergency of the kremlin's attack on our democracy in two thousand sixteen redid. This not once but twice. I think given the right circumstances garland could grow the leadership role. Unfortunately we don't have time for that the kremlin-backed national emergency of growing authoritarianism deeply funded and working extremely hard to hijack our democracy and they might succeed in two thousand twenty two certainly by twenty twenty four and once you're hostage state. It's very hard to get out once you're hostage state. It's human sacrifice time people have to put their lives on the line. They have to do it. Navales doing they have to deal with those kids in belarus. Doing i'm telling you all now. It'd be anybody is in any proximity to power in congress anywhere. Please please please please get an actual nazi hunter to serve as merrick garland training wheels. And come in and clean house in the doj that needs to happen as sap today if we were to stand a fighting chance so consider ceremony as outside consultants that come into the organization and tell you what you're not seeing right in front of your face and have the ruthless outside opinion to say. This is what you need to do. You need to get rid of this. Swath of these people are working against your interests. These are all moles here for foreign governments. Get out there's really no time. And they are running out the clock. They're trying to slow you down joe mansion as part of operation. He's been bought off. He's been coked up with coq money the way mitch. Mcconnell slowdown garland's nomination. The first place. They knew there. Try to run out the clock. Because the authoritarians authoritarians are naturals at this. It's in their dark black hearts. They're doing their got. These killer criminal instincts and they know what is effective. Run out the clock so please get outside consultants inside garland's doj and do. Their garland simply does not have the muscles to do because his muscles have atrophied over the last twenty four years with his administrative legal fun time. He's been having his consensus building. His worship president. He's not the man for this hour. Please get someone in. Please get a ulysses s grant in immediately to the doj clean house for the sake of our democracy for the sake of future generations. Who will be tasked with paying the ultimate price to reverse the stupidity and the wooden headedness plaguing washington right now. Yeah i just want to emphasize a point you made..
