Rep. Chip Roy Talks About New Defense Bill Where Women Would Be Drafted

"Explain that you text me about two things that drew my immediate attention Tell America what's going on Yeah well this week we've got two big bills that are going to be coming up The national defense authorization act which course is important for funding and authorizing our defense But in it is a new provision that we've never had before a provision that would add women to the draft The second thing that's up is the continuing Let's slow down on that Hold on let's do that one first Okay Add women to the drift You know chip I'm older than you And I remember when actually we would have a national discussion about these things before people get slipped this crap into these bills Now who put it in the bill Do we know and did any Republicans vote for it Well this is the exact point right The national defense authorization act the NDAA passed out of the House of Representatives with two thirds two thirds mark of Republicans voting for it with a provision in it that included drafting women also a provision that had red flag laws in it to go after guns of our service members as well as all sorts of garbage for climate training and diversity stuff But importantly drafting our daughters for the first time in history And so a lot of us have raised that issue It's gone over to the Senate and they're about to vote on it They voted on closer tonight Now good news They actually denied cloture Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans denied cloture tonight So I think there's a debate on the other amendments to the bill So I'm trying to elevate and I wrote a letter to Mitch McConnell and to Kevin McCarthy saying the official position of Republicans should be that under no circumstances should we vote for the national defense authorization act if it continues to include this provision to draft women or at least as an at least get rid of the draft

"Months according to a report from Nike citing unidentified sources Recapping stocks rally S&P up 95 up 2.1% I'm Charlie peleton who is a Bloomberg business flash Charlie thank you I'm compelled to look back to the statement From senator Mitch McConnell the minority leader the 6th of October 2021 a lifetime ago Remember this was when McConnell quote unquote save the day and swept in at the last minute to help get this done They kicked the can And set up what happened today And he wrote at that point Democrats excuses this will moot Democrats excuses about the time crunch they creative They created giving the unified democratic government more than enough time to pass stand-alone debt limit legislation through reconciliation He wrote that day alternatively if Democrats abandon their efforts to ram through another historically reckless tax and spend spree that will hurt families and help China a more traditional bipartisan governing conversation could be possible IE don't come calling again But of course they did And Mitch McConnell answered The build back better still on the table And it could still happen this year We talk about it now with Michael Hardaway founder of Hardaway wire his company provides political intelligence to CEOs around the country former communications director for the House democratic caucus and of course representative Hakeem Jeffries as I said Michael it's great to have you back I can't imagine that you were expecting a deal today maybe you were Is that what you were advising your clients on I would say that we expected to do this week but no one in Washington expected that deal to happen today So what compelled Mitch McConnell to help Democrats solve this thing It was a complete surrender on his part because to the point that you made a month and a half ago he said that this would never happen Yeah But to his credit he did the right thing and more importantly he said his members up for next November's election Because in that election Republicans will say Democrats all of this debt onto the American public and their responsible for raising the death ceiling by themselves Notwithstanding the fact that this was bipartisan spinning that both parties agreed to Democrats have taken responsibility for that spinning So Mitch McConnell lost the battle and an attempt to win the war And they'll be able to make a lot of campaign commercials once they get a number on this thing and show Democrats to be spending like drunken sailors That's where you're going Absolutely correct And it's not clear that that will be effective in an election that likely won't be about the issues but from his perspective he certainly surrendered in the short term but he's aiming for a larger victory in the long term How come we haven't heard from senator Chuck Schumer yet Why not come out and try to spin this to Democrats favor Why give this to Mitch McConnell The science has been very interesting I would say to you with no evidence you know listen I spoke with friends and leadership today about this issue But they did not tell me that an agreement was made between Schumer and McConnell about the announcement but I would tell you that in these situations they must have agreed that listen mister McConnell you can make the announcement as part of a larger agreement because it's never the case that you allow the other side to control the narrative unless some agreement was made Okay Michael so let's say this all works We're going to assume this works They wouldn't have rolled it out I'm assuming if it was not actually going to pass Debt limits done until after the midterms So what are we left with here We've got this defense spending bill I'm assuming they find a way forward on that Maybe you're going to tell me otherwise it's not been a terribly controversial issue before this time around at least not usually But then there's this big old build back better thing 1.75 trillion we don't know what it's going to look like maybe you do when it comes out of the Senate But would it be politically smart Would it be a wise move for Chuck Schumer to take the win on the death ceiling Get defense spending done Call it a win Take the victory and go home and come back in the new year to pass the rest of the Biden agenda or they really gonna try to do this all before Christmas The first thing I would say to you is that the 5th spinning does get done It gets done in the bipartisan manner So that's good right So some sanity that still exists in Washington That gets done In terms of the build that better act it's not looking good Obviously mister Schumer delivered a victory on the bipartisan bill In terms of this particular bill they had a race against the clock The Senate leave town next Friday Now of course they could extend that But they leave town next Friday The house leaves town this week and so the question is can you get this bill done in a very short time period with significant work that needs to be done And what we're telling our CEOs is no that it likely doesn't get done this year And nothing gets done next year And so Democrats have to put forward They have to push forward this year and try to get this done But it's unlikely to get done this year Okay but did you just say if not this year it will not get done next year Next year is going to be an ugly election year in which you can expect very little to get done but I don't expect to build that better act to get done next year That means it's not getting done though Michael Unfortunately for the American public I don't see it happening Wow Well okay So we come back in the new year Joe Biden takes the year off Democrats sit on their hands What's the agenda in the midterm election year then I think the Democrats will continue fighting for the issues that they want to get done for the American public I think that's still happens The biggest issue was that Republicans will say no at every turn on every very small thing because from their perspective bipartisan infrastructure is done They don't want to give this president or this democratic Congress a victory on anything as they lead up to an election year And that is the biggest obstacle to anything getting done Democrats are still work on those issues that they care about but Republicans will obstruct everything And by Republicans you mean Joe Manchin and kyrsten sinema No that's a joke but that's kind of real though isn't it Well you know I worked in the Senate I can tell you that every senator thinks he should be president And they are now right And so listen Manson and sinema still have not budged in terms of their opposition to many parts of this bill And.

Attorney General Merrick Garland Shows His True Colors

"Merrick Garland was supposed to be on the United States Supreme Court. Remember when justice Antonin Scalia passed away. The great Antonin Scalia. Then president Barack Hussein Obama proposed that we need to have kind of a healing and kind of coming together period, and we're going to have a moderate come on the U.S. Supreme Court. We're going to have Merrick Garland as he's not far to the left. He's not far to the right. He's kind of going to be like Anthony Kennedy. Now to his great credit, senator Mitch McConnell said no, that's not going to happen. We're going to wait to the election. We're going to see what happens. The election occurred, and Merrick Garland remained in limbo. And never got his appointment to the United States Supreme Court. Merrick Garland always kind of had the appearance. He always kind of had the disguise, the camouflage, the uniform of being a very moderate individual both in his temperament and also his politics. Merrick Garland always kind of had a way of saying, I don't want to bring the country too far in one direction, but my duty is to the rule of law. Now Merrick Garland has showed his true colors the last 6 or 7 months ever since becoming attorney general of the United States. He is without a doubt, one of the most radical, craven, one of the most dangerous attorney generals in American history, I will even say, in some ways Merrick Garland is doing things that Eric holder and Loretta lynch did not even do when they were attorney general of the United

Senate Republicans Block Democrats' Voting and Elections Bill

"Yesterday was victory again. For the Republicans against the miserable Democrat effort to have a federal takeover of our elections. Yesterday afternoon, Republicans stood united and blocked the dubiously named for the people act or the freedom to vote act or all these crazy crappy little flowery names, the nefarious diabolical Dems used to try to hijack our election process. So good news, the Democrats biggest push to federally take over our election failed. Again, mainstream media won't report it that way, but that's exactly what happened. Here's the headline from NPR. You can see right through it. Democrats biggest push for voting rights fails with no Republicans on board.

I apologize not problem. Date chairman of punchbowl. Get your punchbowl news at punchbowl news dot com check last hour. I played chuck schumer speech. You wrote your assessment of the binding legislative agenda. Did you take into account the impact of the shimmer speech which brosseau told maria barham yesterday has deeply soured the republican caucus. I mean to the point. They don't want to talk to the guy. yeah. I actually don't. They didn't talk much to anyway. I don't find that big. I don't find it to be this positive. I've been through a lot of michael's where speeches what we're supposed to ruin relationships. The fact is the reality is. There's not much cooperation that we anticipate anyway. I think the conventional wisdom is wrong on the democratic side. I think that because mcconnell blinked and this lasts debt limit fight he makes it less likely appoint again And i think that i just i. I don't think the speeches what did it. I mean it's not like we were in a golden era for cooperation. What did you make joe mansion face in his hands and then leaving. We reported at the time that he He used next live instead. It was. I read batting. Yeah i can't remember exactly what it was I think listen. I think i am the cynic here is you know hugh i think. Being against schumer is beneficial for him. But i do think. Joe manchin owns chuck schumer in a way In the sense that he can't get anything done. Schumer can't without joe mansion so You know what mansion said In in many respects was right that if you want to have more progressive agenda you don't have to worry about joe manchin so like progressives to the senate you know and i think that's the reality of it now. Can i explain to you. My theory of what happened last week. I think mitch mcconnell one. Even though people think he lost. I think he intended people think he lost so that he could win. In december he could not allow the debt crisis right now so he waited and waited and waited extended it till december and he will allow it in december. Couldn't allow it now. It might have the reconciliation going to a higher number now. The democrats have to work out their reconciliation and if they do they're going to have passed trillions of dollars in spending and they're gonna have to borrow for it to reconciliation to get your take ship sherman. I don't think that yeah i mean. Listen i i think that he. I don't think that he won or lost. I think this was kind of a stupid fight with an. It's now it was a stupid deal. That really screws over everyone involved. I mean i agree with you. He couldn't have a he could not afford to have a default And he did. In the only the i guess i would say. He won. Because schumer's main argument against reconciliation and lifting with reconciliation was that he didn't have time that was schumer's made argument yao He can't make that argument. So i i and i hear that I do hear that. There's a lot of anger in the republican conference. Though i mean. We can't underestimate that On what mcconnell. There's no movement to get rid of them that silliness that is coming from whatever wherever trump. We're getting that from. Oh you mean getting rid of mcconnell not not a not a chance

"Hi Mike Ross you're reporting Congress foresees a short term debt fix as Senate Republicans stand down Congress pulled back from a standoff over lifting the government's borrowing cap Wednesday as Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell offered to allow an emergency extension into December the offer came as Republicans were prepared to block a procedural vote in the Senate speaking to reporters senator Bernie Sanders overall I hope we number sure to process that does not right a long term solution but while an unprecedented that potentially catastrophic federal default would be averted it also set the stage for a possible repeat battle in December Mike Rossio Washington

Manchin signals he won't support filibuster carve-out for debt hike

"President Biden says a change to Senate filibuster rules is a real possibility to raise the nation's debt limit with the nation another day closer to an unprecedented federal government default a move by Democrats to change the Senate filibuster rules appears to be on the table previously resistant to such a maneuver president Joe Biden told reporters Tuesday evening I think that's a real possibility Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's frustration was evident earlier in the day if Republicans would just get out of the damn way we could get this all done but Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell again pointed out the Democrats are in control they need to do this they have the time to do it and

"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..

"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..

"Reality is in the Senate right now, , it takes just simple majority to advance any presidential nominee Paul Kane is the senior congressional correspondent for the post whether it is to some random commission overseeing the Great Lakes or the Supreme Court of the United States of America, , and that has left the minority party with very few options. . The reality is that there's not a whole they can do. . and. . What are some of these theories that we have heard of that Democrats could do or that people think the Democrats could do right now oh, , there's this thought of if you impeached someone anyone bill bar or in the trump again and sent to that resolution across the capital that it would instantly stop all other action and forced them to hold an impeachment trial. . You know I got an email from a reader asking about they could just deny unanimous consent blocking unanimous consent is something that blocks the action from taking place and basically would make the voting process go much more slowly. . Yeah. . But there are provisions. . Already in line for how to deal with those things, , you file something called a cloture motion. . That's the that's the way you blocked a filibuster defeat filibuster and yes, , it'll take three days to overcome that process but think of it this way if there really were away for this minority party to block this Supreme Court nominee then Mitch McConnell would have thought of it in the eight years that he served as minority leader and was considered the obstructionist in chief. . He was considered the greatest structure in the history of the Senate blocking Brock Obama at every possible way if there were ways for digital block Supreme Court. . Nominations of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan from the minority position McConnell would have done it but he couldn't do it, , and then I've heard these ideas that potentially if Democrats were to win control of the Senate in November, , and if there were to be a Democratic president that there's this idea, , you could pack the court afterward, , you could just change the number of justices that there are on the Supreme Court and increase them. . So you could have two more. . Democrat appointed justices or you could have four more. . Well, , that is a the that is something that can legitimately be done in the legislative process. . There was no. . Foundation in the constitution that set the number of surpreme. Court . justices at nine. . It started with six justices the chief and five associate justices an grew over the years and you know to be sure you know the considered the greatest Democratic president of all Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried in the nineteen thirties to pack the court and very infamous way and eventually was shot down and the reality is if Democrats were to go through the couple year process of adding justices to spring court that would immediately be met in return with Republicans. . Next time they have the power and you know we just would go back and forth by. . In twenty years, we , might have twenty one justices and also probably need support from actual democratic leadership, , and this seems like something that Congressional leadership isn't that interested in something that Joe Biden has said that he straight up doesn't think should happen Yeah Biden had got a little bit cagey the other night when he was asked about it in a local interview I think it was in Wisconsin and he basically said that he didn't want to answer the question because of the answers the question. . Then that's GonNa change the. . Discussion and what Democrats are trying to do right now is to avoid these. . These are processed fights. . I know that there is a bigger bigger goal at hand here in terms of overall policy and how that policy is reviewed at the supreme. . Court. . But most of the public tunes this stuff out because they, , they hear things about over Republicans are being hypocrites and well like eighty nine percent or more of the public says, , yeah, , they're all hypocrites no big deal and they really want to try and focus this fight politically. . On, , what the impact of trading in Ruth? ? Bader GINSBURG. . The most iconic liberal justice of the last twenty five years for a very staunch conservative jurist like amy, , Coney Barrett like that is the biggest ideological jump that the court would have seen since thurgood Marshall was replaced by Clarence Thomas They WanNa make this fight politically not about these seemingly random efforts to put more justices on the Supreme Court and they want this fight to be about the impact on the affordable care act

"Is in regards to how Mitch McConnell responded to Nancy Pelosi today and talked about how if they just have cold feet my question is why do you think the he responded in that way when really the issue is much more simple in their the Senate cannot do anything in regards to structuring a a a stated peach may preceding around a trial until they have that's right the impeachment papers usually they can't do anything right why do you think you responded the way they did rather than just throwing it back and then you say well we can't do anything until you get the papers well my guess is the knowing knowing how McConnell functions he's going to do that as a second argument is first argument was going to be you know okay this is been a mass this is been ugly this is that awful and when she comes back and asks again he's going to say yeah but I can't do anything until you give me the documents I think he didn't want to just blow all of his power right out of the box that that's my only guess because he's on the guy he makes me crazy there are plenty of things it Mitch McConnell does it makes me nuts but the guy is a he is he is a world class constitutional mechanic and he understands how to how to tweak stuffs great subject to great question it's very legit William in San Diego what's going on William what you want to say no I have a question sure if they don't if they don't present the articles of impeachment yeah yes grows up or vote for a for dismissal and if they get the majority to vote on it thank you just the whole thing then it's over we are using the congressman in the house of representatives of the Senate well the Senate yeah this anything that yes yes why don't they do that I mean yeah I think I think the I think the I think my McConnell is trying to be as accommodating as again with this dumb impeachment and that at some point pull the plug on the nonsense that that's that's my that's my betting right there he's not gonna do it the next day that's too quick Paul in San Diego what you got Hey Hey I got a quick comment on on this it is kind of so they want to build on the first callers insight about how it progresses all the sudden specially close issues prior full you know the constitution the founding fathers the flag the pledge of allegiance all all the stuff that we know they hate right right but you know the the left okay they're they're based also hates this stop so they're listening to below sea and basically if like when the when the when the boat finally went through and they've been the clapping started right you know by by the dams and she's there but if you like a school teacher like sure sure sure don't give it away you know in wink wink nod nod you know to to her base that now this is don't worry about it this is all a polite and and the subtlety that she doesn't get is you know she's basically telegraphing that she thinks we're stupid okay this isn't this isn't for the benefit of our baser based you know once the guy impeached hi this is to pull the wool over our eyes and and she sure she her base is so they keep on talking about how their woke yeah it's like they're not woke we are what we are way way way woke and we are way on to what rock all of this is and it is a testament to the to her arrogance he thinking how stupid we are out here that this stuff is going to work it's a great point huge huge point from Paul Paul in San Diego knocks it out of the parties exactly correct ladies and gentlemen I want to be fair with the calls so if you're on hold we can continue this discussion and I'm and I'm more than happy to do that I just wanna make sure he's got a fair shot to make their comments so if you're on hold state if you want to stay on hold please stay there and we certainly will work you into the into the discussion you can ask me a question I can ask you a question we can talk about impeachments impeachment seems to be the hot ticket today and I certainly want to give you options because that's what I'm all about giving the audience options we want to get.

"When America turned against Nixon and politicians because like I said they're they're about see why in themselves they care about them right like Mitch McConnell he cares about Mitch McConnell yes they protect the party what they care about Mitch McConnell I have no doubt in my mind most of them would switch parties if they thought they were gonna lose is in order but they would win is a date and they still gonna stick around and vice versa they get addicted to all the stuff long gone are the days where they're willing to go you know want we got to do the right thing we need to put the constitution ahead of party they don't care they put people error the constitution at a party in a long time right when Congress screams and yell about the power in this than the other you guys start giving power away decades ago so we could we could have that discussion another time the reality is is you do something like this because you believe this rice is to the point where this man who's the president United States can no longer be trusted and you're willing to look at sixty two plus million Americans and say you you got it wrong and you have to I understand that we're going to cancel your vote we're going to remove this guy if I'm a Democrat you know what I'm doing I'm appealing to the other side say look guys you're Americans stopping arson these your Americans and we should care about the constitution we should care about the constitution we care about the rule of law we should care about all of those things more than anything else and I would expect you guys to want the same thing if somebody from this party had didn't something like that you should want that to happen and that's all we're trying to do we're trying to secure our world in a way where we had this constitution these rules set up but because of our fracture here because of our tribalism we're just looking at it you got and I'm getting more and this gets anywhere so they can fight and they can argue when they can do all of these things that we had a new phone call we got this we got that but you also have to ask yourself to even if it is in theory quote unquote the right thing to do based on the constitution is the right thing to do for the country at this moment in time because sometimes you look around and go are we gonna do so much damage are we gonna becomes so fractured that repairing it in this lifetime may not happen you have to ask yourself if the wait all of those things I want to do the right thing I would hear everybody out what I saw today I'm not a lighter I series questions I believe what these guys were saying absolutely I don't think bill Taylor is a liar I don't think George can't is a liar can it be interpreted in different ways yes some other stuff can be and everything is always open to interpretation when you're getting things secondhand but they're also dealing with first hand knowledge that's why I continue to tell people it's not about said phone call it's about all of the other things that led up to said phone call many the guy trump one going to take the call from the other guys Lynskey unless there was an understanding along the way that these things had to happen but trump still took the phone call still gave the money and still there was no investigation announcement so then you're like yeah yeah yeah you're right about that and what none of those things but this was a store today and what what is the fourth time this has happened in our history but some basic do you think about I was in Europe when this happened last time I looked over there as well I was working a radio over there and and and I did a lot of stuff inside of the the radio stations you know because they they were asking me about so much of this stuff and you know try to get the significance of of the things they're they're they're they they become a little bit more like us in places like England in in the way that you know they've got their their guy Borse over there just doing his things kind of very trump asking a lot of stuff but very much an entertainer but this is it this is it this is a different thing this is a historic thing I wanna see it out see the way place but even at the end of the day do I feel that he's going to be removed not whether or not I think you should or shouldn't be because I want to see everything through I don't think it's going to be removed based on any of this stuff it's going to have to be the public like they did on Nixon to the point where the Republicans new and very cold water had to go we're gonna do you got to reside and I don't see that happening I have yet to see Mitch go over there and I don't think he's doing it anytime soon not saying it can't happen but at this moment in time I don't see that happening just don't yes I worked out today big time why because I got a lot of stuff that I'm doing you see what's going on what do I need I need energy I like to take.

"Of the machine gun Mitch McConnell the background check and closing the Charleston loophole or sitting at the Senate and it's time for Mitch McConnell to get off his rear ends and do something what I was looking for today Andrea was for that that that that radicalize orange chief to come out and say are you personally review can reject the ideology of hate doesn't affect cutting rates now just going to make the next economic downturn worst I've been hoping for a recession people hate me for it but it would get rid of problems so you should name before I mean recessions are really bad people lose their jobs and I know them and we shouldn't was worth it what he has got to understand is that when you have language that is racist that is very lovely anti immigrant they're all mentally unstable people in this country who see that as a sign of doom terrible terrible things he is inciting hatred inciting violence inciting racism if he doesn't unequivocally call it off and say this is wrong and we stand together against this and we are doing this this and this to help fight hate crime I mean this is a president who seems to want these things to happen how else can can this be explained in the president reading off of a teleprompter a condemned racism he condemned white supremacy but at rallies in his tweets he says things that fuel those beliefs and people who support them we've seen this pattern before right I mean it's the arsonist coming in saying they want to help put out the fire right I mean he's he's the one who created the fire in the first place and this is an issue that resonates with voters this is an issue that resonates with young people who have grown up in the age of mass shootings afraid that they may come to their school because it has become a way of life it seems to me that this political issue could be something that the Democrats could get some traction on let's politicized let's get traction on it and let's be a realism with Warren and the DNC let's raise money on a tragedy within seconds hours after it occurs because that's exactly what they've done that's exactly what they always do you know the fact that the shooter in Dayton of course was a Elizabeth Warren supporter and OB huge socialist and hated trumpet hated Republicans that has not been discussed as we have pointed out many times here aw nor did they bring up thirty seven mass shootings taking place under Obama nor did they mention Obama in Chicago home his home city and the carnage that took place during the entire eight years yeah it's it's pretty amazing when when you think of it so Obama finally comes out with his statement and he says that you know divisive rhetoric is is is is bad for the country and then he's going out there telling everybody arm yeah with his rhetoric is is horrible well I there's something called audio and video tape we have access to it you decide if you think this is divisive does the polarization and meanness in our politics Republicans in Congress right now have shown over and over don't do anything to rig the system for those without even if the instruction keeps the system rigged against middle class middle class families can't wait for the bugs in Congress to do stuff so so many of the climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security denying it or refusing to deal with it endangers our national security it undermines the readiness of our forces you've seen an extreme faction of the Republican Party that is shown again and again and again but they're willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy where members of Congress and the house Republicans in particular don't get to demands ransom in exchange for doing their job that that ideological extremism and maximalist position is much more prominent right now the Republican Party is somewhat ironic.

Donald Trump has some pretty obvious kompromat over leader McConnell by virtue of his wife's position in his cabinet. Mitch McConnell's political.

"Who's that that this major effort to undermine our democracy was happening? Mitch McConnell said if you do this I will cast it as a as a partisan gambit in a make look like you're trying to swing the election for Hillary Clinton. So the public did not find out that this was happening because of Mitch McConnell's tactic on this. It was it was really remarkably cynical moment where he was casting something that would have been sort of a United effort to save our democracy as as a partisan as a person move, which was it self. Of course, the most partisan move of all well jasmine farrier, how do you read that moment, especially since we've we're few years away from it? Now. I think that again as majority leader or as minority leader or as majority whip which was his previous position Mitch McConnell has spent half of his career in the Senate in the party leadership team that means that the party is going to be paramount. And the next election is going to be the goal, and as an astute observer of politics, there's no question in Mitch McConnell's mind that his actions in two thousand sixteen including his actions about merit garland helped Donald Trump got elected. And that's what he did as a Republican, well suppose. A lot of people react to something like that. And and what they might want to say is. Yes, you know, one can can be of great champion of of your party. And and use the political tools at hand to advance the policy interests of your party, whether you're Republican or democrat, but regarding this moment in late twenty sixteen..

"I mean, he there's there are a lot of obviously, a lot of culprits in bringing Washington to place where it is now, but but McConnell's role in in in this this rise of of obstruction in gridlock that we've had in Washington in real kind of really kind of a degrading of norms in Washington is just cannot be overstated. Just if you look at at the rise of these of the filibuster and always other blocking tactics in his time as Republican leader it, the the the the fault them responsibility. Very clearly lies with him. And and many. Sort of many are arbiters of Washington have basically come to that conclusion. Okay. So is it fair then to say, then Mitch Mitch McConnell should be taking some ownership for this government shutdown too. Absolutely. I mean in the way that he it most most specifically really because he has played he played an enormous role in the election of Donald Trump to extent that this shutdown is is brought to us by Donald Trump. Mitch McConnell is responsible for it because of his own role in in Trump's election. He he helped elect Trump in any number of ways. First of all, of course, with the blocking of merit Garland's nomination refusing to even hear that nomination to entertain it at all which is a complete break with with norms in Washington. He gave Trump huge hand by by giving Republicans reason to rally around Trump in the fall, he he also helped elect Trump by basically by feeding the this Republican rise Republican opposition to chew Bama in sort of seating. This kind of tea party ish conservatism. Yeah. Well, LX stand by here for just a second and Bill Straub as well. We are talking about the Senate majority leader about Senator Mitch McConnell and his role in this government shutdown right now, he says he's going to do very little until the president and Democrats come to some sort of agreement is that the right way to go. Or is it just exacerbating the problem? We'll be right back. I'm making a trucker birdie. This is.

Today, we want to focus on what Congress's most powerful Republican is doing to end the impasse. We're talking, of course, about Senator Mitch McConnell. Here's what McConnell's democratic colleagues. Senator Chuck Schumer demanded from the Senate majority leader yesterday, it's time for leader McConnell to realize he has the power to break this impasse, passing the house legislation to reopen the government legislation his party already supports legislation that leader McConnell has voted for and bragged about and how did McConnell respond. Well, we don't have that tape because truth is McConnell has said very little about the government shutdown in a couple of days. So rewind back to earlier this month as the new congress convened and McConnell made his shutdown stance. Perfectly clear not wish. It's time considering a democratic Bill which cannot pass this chamber in which the president will not time. Now, you can look at this as Mitch McConnell's effective legislative pregnant pragmatism at its best or his cold blooded political cynicism at its worst. Either way it's time to talk about why this government shutdown. Also belongs to Mitch McConnell this hour on point the Senate majority leader and the government shutdown, and you can join us shoot Mitch McConnell give into Democrats demands. Or do you approve of the fact that he's standing firm with the president on his demands for a border wall?
