The Senate is set to vote later today on legislation to protect same sex and interracial marriages. Senate Democrats have been moving quickly while the party still holds the majority in both chambers of Congress. The house would still need to vote on that legislation and send it to President Biden for his signature, assuming passage in the Senate. The bill has gained study momentum since the Supreme Court's decision that overturned the federal right to an abortion. And comments from justice clarence Thomas at the time, suggesting that same sex marriage could also come under threat. Meantime, Congress has a lot to do in the coming weeks, including funding the government to avoid a shutdown. Details from WTO's Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill.

It's also tackling a lot of other issues, including protection of same sex and interracial marriage. Millions of Americans deserve equal justice under the law. Legislation advanced on a procedural vote and supporters hope for a final vote soon. The Senate's top Republican Mitch McConnell, meanwhile, remains critical of the president's policies and two years of inflation.

You Can't Get Anything Done With Mitch McConnell

"The problem with having somebody like Mitch McConnell as the so called leader of the Republican Party in the Senate is you can't get anything done That is you can't move the affirmative direction to advance the cause of liberty limited government private property rights and so forth You just can't Because in order to do that you have to take on these American Marxist forces And he's not willing to do that He's willing to meet them on the 40 yard line Which means we lose more and more of our liberty under a man like Mitch McConnell and the 36 other republik who voted for him It is an essentially crazy process that we find ourselves in And it's very difficult

So in line with the other in line with the market in line with some of the other names there, but cruisers are pretty passionate customers. They are coming back. I mean, Walt Disney Company, they're still building ships. In fact, they took over a ship that's in some shipyard over in Europe. That's like halfway complete, and they're gonna finish it. Just because they need more cruise ships, more capacity. As fascinating that in the last two years, we haven't really heard anyone say that. We need more cruise ships. Right. Here we are looking for capacity. Paul the story is actually caught my eye was on Amazon. If I can nerd out for a very short second, I got 30 seconds here.

This is a massive deal. When you have the big tech names come out that have been able to borrow in the pandemic for basically treasury borrowing rates coming out and issuing a lot of this debt. Basically, $7 billion is still up for potential changes, but that's a pretty big deal. And they're going out on the curve as well. Yeah. And it's interesting. It's not that the rates are low. It's just that the market's relative to the last 6, 8 months are a little bit stable here today because we're getting all this economic data, which could throw them into turmoil later in the week. Although rates have come in pretty substantially. So we're not looking at four 20 anymore. We're looking at more like three actually let me look.

Charlie Welcomes Terry Schilling of the American Principles Project

"Welcome back to the program. Hey, thanks so much for having me, Charlie. So Terry, there's a lot of news to go through here and Terry, you run the wonderful American principles project to do a great job. Talk about some of the work you did this last cycle first. Well, we were up and running in several of these battleground Senate states, Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, even and we were running campaign as educating American people, the American people about the threat to our kids, especially as it comes to transgenderism. We ran a lot of ads on women's sports. But this year we did something new that we haven't done before. We ran ads educating Americans about these transgender surgeries, the hormone treatments, and just the overall gender indoctrination that the left is doing to our kids in schools, and we produce really powerful ads. Charlie, we spent almost $15 million this cycle. It's something I'm really proud of because frankly, and I think you probably don't aware of this. The pro family movement has done a lot of great things and been good at a lot of things, but they've retreated from the political battlefield. And that's what we do in American principles project is be fill that political gap for the family. And we win campaigns and elections for them. So we're still reading on the results for how the impact that our ads had on the electorate. But we know that where the Republicans and the politicians that really leaned into these culture war issues and went on offense, they won by huge margins, right? Like look at Ron DeSantis, he won by barely half of a percentage point in 2018. He takes on Walt Disney corporation of all people. And wins by almost 20 points. Mike dewine in Ohio signed a heartbeat bill into law. He wins by 35 points. These guys that actually went into the culture war and led on this stuff. They were rewarded handsomely at the polls. And we need to get rid of the Mitch McConnell's of the world and the mccarthys and the Tom emmers, and we really need to start rewarding our guys when they fight for us because these guys want to keep us from fighting. It's been a disaster.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Unpacks the Midterms

"Joining us now is one of the smartest people in the country to help us unpack what happened on 11 8. The midterms, almost two weeks ago. It feels like it was two months ago. It's been a long long couple of weeks as we unpack all of this is the great Newt Gingrich, mister speaker, welcome back to the program. It's good to be with you. I'm sure about great. But it's still good to be with you, Charlie. Well, thank you, mister speaker. So obviously we're going to win back the House of Representatives, which is a positive Ron DeSantis one by double digits, and we want to Georgia and Texas, but I know you will agree that it was a little bit underwhelming in certain parts of the country. You look at fetterman, you look at some of these people that are going to be senators, remarkably beatable. What happened and what went wrong? Well, I think first of all, this was a tough thing to say, but I think the Republican policies are, I should say, the principles that the campaign consultants use are just wrong. Let me give you an example. A number of our candidates came out of the primaries virtually broke and for two or three months they weren't spending any money. Meanwhile, the Democrats were identifying and defining our candidates and the number of them never quite recovered. In some cases, and here I think Mitch McConnell was a major problem. He had a huge super PAC, but it believed in spending money late. Well, the problem with that is in a lot of states now, people vote so early that if you aren't shaping the election in August and September, you're really missing the whole first wave of voting. So that was a piece of it. The other problem is that McConnell in particular does not believe in having any kind of serious issues to create an agenda. I really liked what Kevin McCarthy did. I think if he had a mistake, it was not doing more of it, but his commitment to America was real. It's positive. You're going to see it play out in the house. And I think that probably they should have spent more time and money communicating it as we did with the contract back in 94.

I'd like to, I'd like to know who those folks are to be perfectly honest with you, congressman Perry, and I'd like to know what Mitch McConnell met when he wants to find common ground with the Democrats on some of the issues. Yeah, I mean, it's stresses me out, of course, as it does all of us. And the answer is, well, if you can't get, if you can't get ten more than ten and a sacred ball, excuse me, what are you going to get in an open ballot? I mean, these folks must have the fear of the good lord in them against about Mitch McConnell as far as finding common ground. I mean, look, the Democrats own the place, they're not interested in common ground. They're interested in a cram down is what they're just going to shove their way through. And of course, as long as there's always a handful of senators to give them what they need to get to 60, a handful of Republicans that they can continue to get everything they want, something has to give here.

John Fugelsang's Terrifying Trump Presidential Campaign Theory

"Have a terrifying theory. It's not really funny. What if Trump is doing this, knowing that a candidacy won't keep him safe from any kind of prosecution knowing he has no immunity as a mere candidate. But what if his overall game is to get as many delegates as he can, hold the entire GOP hostage, and before conceding and throwing his support to desantis, extracting a promise for a pardon? Could make a lot of sense. And that might be why he's doing that. Well, Travis and I have a dream because some listeners said, would you rather have an indicted Trump or third party run Trump, and we, big thinkers here, said, why can't we have both? Dream big. Indicted in prison and a third party run, it could happen. I do know he would run to prison. Oh yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And by the way, Ron DeSantis is never going to be more popular than he is now. I've been saying for a long time, Ron DeSantis is a greater threat to everything we care about in America than Donald Trump. Trump has done like disco, my Friends. It's just, he can still hurt people, but he can't appoint more judges. He's not going to be able to set more policy. So I think as awful as Ron DeSantis is, now begins the beautiful period of people listening to Ron DeSantis give speeches and say, is that it? That's their savior. He's a terrible speaker. He's a terrible debater. Yeah. Terrible human being. Terrible Christian. So, you know, he's really popular among the people who have been wrong about everything this entire century so far. So we actually the threat I've heard Trump will make is that they don't have a primary at all, right? Either they coronate him. Found him or he'll go third party, right? Yeah, the hilt demand they don't have a primary. Let him try. There will be Republicans who run against him. And by the way, those Republicans will still get votes, Trump's only leverages threatening third party. That's the only way he can really hurt Mitch McConnell, because at the end of the day, the Trump supporters are going to vote GOP no matter

"Now is senator Josh hawley, one of the few fighters in the U.S. Senate, and I am so happy and thrilled that senator hawley's influence will be increasing because JD Vance is going to the U.S. Senate senator Holly, how you doing? I'm doing great, Charlie. Thanks for having me. I know you and I are both on the ground with JD Vance. I wish we would make Blake masters as well, but sending JD is a big deal. Thank you. And thank you for all your help with that. Let me just kind of start with the leadership election or selection I should say yesterday. Tell us what you can without breaching any confidentiality of what happened behind closed doors with what looks like now senator McConnell is going to be continued leader of the Senate minority. Well, listen, I'll just tell you what my position has been, which is that I voted for new leadership. I said before the election, Charlie, that I wasn't going to support to Mitch McConnell for leader. I don't think that he has led the party in a good direction. I think the results of this last election make that clear. And I think we need a different direction clear. I mean, if you look at this last election and you say, oh, everything's fine. It's just fine, you know? We don't need to make any changes. I just say, if you're a Republican, you know, you're delusional. Particularly if you're one of these D.C. Republicans that didn't give the candidates anything to run on, that didn't actually put forward a coherent agenda. The basically just set off Biden sucks. He's no good vote for us. You know what we learned out of this election is that independent voters, they actually want you to come out and fight for them. They actually want you to come be on their side. It's not enough to say it's our turn. You have to go show them that you're willing to fight for them. And I don't think Senate leadership has done that. So Charlie, I voted no and you know, I urged for there to be new leadership, and I asked both of the guys who were running, which was Mitch McConnell and Rick Scott from Florida. I asked both of them, what are you going to do to put forward an agenda that will actually deliver for the American people, not just talk, not just do press appearances, but what are you going to do that will actually deliver?

You know, Republican senators may have disagreements. But they actually, they don't have fisticuffs. I tried to explain that in the first hour I'd like you to expand on that. Any partnership. And I've run two law firms with more than 20 partners. And they disagree. And then they get that they have a vote in the end. You go along with what the vote is. Is that the way the Senate Republican caucus will work? That is the way that it works actually. There's always frustration. We obviously underperform what we thought we would during the elections last week. So there's a need for a very serious conversation about where we're going. How we communicating the issues, what are the key things that we're actually trying to be able to promote and put out there. Those are hard conversations that need to have and we spent hours Monday and Tuesday going through some very Frank conversations on that as we should.

"Having grown up in New York in the Giuliani era Things have to get really bad to wake people from this slumber I'm not us conservatives see it coming and see the train getting ready to wreck but liberals are so attached to the brand sold to them by their college professors in the media for like two decades of their life or something like that That they're just not ready to shake it yet And the thing is that I said on my Fox show is things just haven't gotten bad enough yet but they will And your general thoughts on that Yeah I think that's probably fair Especially when you look at the fact that young people were such a huge factor in these midterms typically we don't see a high level of turnout from young people and the fact that they did show up in such high numbers I think just shows the level in depth of some of the brainwashing that's been going on in American institutions and they're not grown up enough yet and don't have enough life experience to really understand what's happening So I think that does bode well for 2024 in the sense that the Biden administration regardless of not having the help anymore is going to continue to solve the struct and things will get so bad that regardless of who the Republican nominee ends up being whether that's Trump or somebody else you're going to have a lot to run against But these midterms also showed us it's not enough to just run against something you have to have a viable alternative And I think one of the biggest mistakes that the party made collectively both between Kevin McCarthy and the House side Mitch McConnell on the Senate side and then ronna mcdaniel over at the RNC is that there was not a consistent vision for the country and just running against Hal bad Biden was didn't work just like how we saw Hillary Clinton running against how bad she thought Trump was in 2016 didn't work

The Republican Path to Recovery

"Thanks to former New Jersey governor Chris Christie for sticking around and talking to me some more because governor, when we went to break, you were telling me the RNC doesn't plan to put count a ton of stage until August. I don't know if you saw JD Vance, the senator elect from Ohio. He wrote in the American conservative about our small dollar donor disadvantage. It's significant. It's massive. One way to close it is to get our candidates on a stage talking about our messages. Why would the RNC wait till August? You know, I don't know you, I think, you know, they're doing the same thing they did four years ago. I think it's cookie cutter and it's easy. And I think that's what they're going to do. Now I've actually always changed. It certainly candidates to make an agreement to go out there and do these things together as well. You know, meet you. I've never been reluctant to get on the stage. No, anybody. And have a conversation. And look, in the end of the day, what we need to do is to start talking about as you said, our public issues, and we didn't win our Tuesday in the way we should have. Because we ran that candidates who were giving not completely, but in the mean messages that were not credible. And I think voters just said, yeah, no, thank you. I don't know thank you in Arizona. Now imagine this does do see one by 13 points in 20 14. If I 15 points in 2018, this should not have even been a close race in Arizona for the governorship there. And when we're not winning those kind of races, if we can't be competitive like you, statewide, in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, there is no electoral math that gets a Republican the presidency. Let me ask you, do you think Mitch McConnell should be reelected leader of the Republican caucus? Look, I've never worked in Mitch McConnell, but I would say this. I think he does a very good job at managing a very unruly and difficult caucus. And so from my perspective, I think Mitch McConnell is the leader of the Senate Republicans and I think you should continue to be. All right,

"It's rich valdes our guest is Peter Schweitzer and he is the author of the book red handed how American elites get rich helping China win. He's also president of the government accountability institute. Now, Peter Schweitzer, I was alluding earlier to these conflicts of interest that we see with just so many different politicians. And Mitch McConnell is not the least of which. So I would love you to address that and also to address anything we may have left unbuttoned from the previous segment. I didn't want to cut you off. I've been chomping at the bit to bring that up because I feel like as many times as we talk about it, it doesn't get the mileage that it deserves. Well, I appreciate that, rich. Yeah. I mean, look, the problem with China engaging in what they call elite capture, which is their word and their approach, which is essentially to sort of buy off political elites by giving them commercial favors. The bidens are an example of that. But this is not just a Biden problem. This is a bipartisan political problem. In Washington and Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Republicans in the Senate has equally troubling ties to China. In his particular case, he's married to Elaine Chao. She served in the Trump administration as the transportation secretary. She was the labor secretary in the George W. Bush administration. They got married in the early 1990s and her family owns a shipping business called foremost shipping. Well, back in 1993, you've got a young senator from Kentucky who's marrying Elaine Chao. They get married. The trip that they take, really the first trip, maybe it's even their honeymoon is a trip to Beijing, China. Now this is only four years after Tiananmen Square. So it's a very sensitive time, very few politicians if any are going to Beijing. But Mitch McConnell shows up with Elaine Chao. They're not there as guests of the embassy. They're not there on official business. They are there as a guest of the Chinese state shipbuilding corporation, which has been named, of course, shows is owned by the Chinese government. It also happens to be the biggest military contractor in China. And they essentially go to the McConnell chow family and say, look, we want to strike you a deal. You've got the shipping company.

"But I'll never make that mistake again. But he's got to go. All right, so getting back getting back to Mitch McConnell. We talked, there's two types of Republicans. There were Republicans that understand the existential threat that the left poses to America and those that do not. McConnell, in my opinion, is one that does not. So last week's debacle in which last week's debacle showed it, all right? So last week, you guys may remember this, but anyway, senator minority leader, Kentucky, embraced the moniker Darth Vader, right? For thwarting liberal ambitions, well, that didn't happen. That didn't happen. Actually, before I get to what happened last week, let's go back sometime. Let's go back to the debt limit. This is where it started. This was cave number one. The debt limit. So last fall, House and Senate Democrats agreed to a budget resolution with a provision to raise the debt limit via budget reconciliation. Anything that's budget reconciliation, they can pass with a simple majority. So these people, the Democrats agreed to a budget resolution without a provision to raise the debt limit. So what happens there? The Republicans actually have some leverage. So the Democrats had lost their leverage because they didn't, they didn't, again, agree to a budget resolution without raising the debt limit. All right? So they needed GOP support. They needed GLC GOP support to raise the debt limit at that point. Now, here's what happened. Either one Republican senator needed to attend a committee markup to allow for the Democrats to amend the budget resolution. So all 50 Democrats could raise the debt limit by a budget reconciliation or ten Republicans needed to vote for the bill on the Senate floor in over to overcome the filibuster. The 60 60 vote majority there. So here's what McConnell decided to do instead. This was the first time that he got rolled. He and ten other of his colleagues Republicans gave Democrats their vote to pass a short term increase in a debt in the debt limit last October. So this was last October. Let me say something about this. When Republicans get in office, this continued resolution crap where we feel like the sky is falling every three months needs to stop. Can we get an annual budget Republicans? Can we get a freaking angle budget? Insane. And a balanced budget amendment. If we get a super majority, two months later, both McConnell and Schumer concocted some type of backroom deal, they are creating an entirely new process where Democrats to raise the debt limit in this case, Republicans didn't vote for the debt limit itself about 14 Republicans did vote for the process that allowed the increase to take place. So 14 Republicans and then here's how McConnell would likely defend himself after that debacle. McConnell would likely this according to the federalists, federalists would likely argue that his position represented a case of discretion of being the better part of valor. He didn't demand big concessions or huge concessions like forcing Democrats to totally nix their build back broke Bill. Because he feared that a confrontation would compel senators kyrsten sinema and senators Manchin basically to just to just go ahead and vote with Democrats. So he played the nice guy. So McConnell ended up essentially picking a fight that he knew he would lose. It says right here in the column in August 2021, Democrats admit it a debt limit increase from their budget resolution and forfeited their leverage again in the process because they feared it would damage or jeopardize the resolution's passage, period. And because Schumer believed that McConnell and the inn would cave. That's what Schumer was banking on. That McConnell would K and McConnell did. And McConnell did. That was the first mistake. That was the first mistake. Mistake number two, he caved on the chip's Bill. So the first cave from McConnell last year was on the debt limit. That's where it started. That's when Chuck Schumer knew that McConnell was pliable. Now the chips Bill. And late June when word leaked that Schumer mansion had resumed serious talks about reviving the build back broke, build back broke Bill McConnell sent out a very clear warning that any attempt to pass, quote, quote, this is very important. A partisan reconciliation bill close quote lead to the death of a bipartisan bill promoting semiconductor chip production. So both before and after McConnell's threat, Democrats never stopped pursuing the reconciliation bill. They keep working. They keep working. They continue to pursue a partisan reconciliation bill. Despite McConnell's threat, they spend two weeks setting their sights slightly lower than they had initially intended. Focusing only on healthcare. So that's what they did. But McConnell ended up getting rode. He got rolled on the issue. He got rope because he caved on the principle. He first laid out on the last day of June, that any attempt to pass a quote, a partisan reconciliation bill, no matter how large or small, would lead to the death of the chip legislation, but he didn't stick to his guns. So when Democrats publicly shifted towards a healthcare only reconciliation, McConnell gave them the green light of the passage of the chip's legislation. They got a twofer. And it backfired on McConnell. The GOP in Washington has become the party that prefers smaller big government. That's all McConnell showed them. Democrats and Republicans both big government, McConnell is showing the left that Republicans just tend to be smaller pay government. And so you pass this $280 billion well, $280 billion that will go to these chips companies. These chips companies that will still continue to work with China. We didn't do anything. So they can still, they can still our technology. As the heritage foundation pointed out, we would have better spent the money by basically finding some areas within the United States that we could allocate money to to build factories, perhaps in lower income communities where we could provide jobs and make sure the money went directly and specifically for set things when it comes to chips manufacturing right here in the United States. We didn't do that. We didn't do that. Instead, we gave corporate welfare to big chip companies..

"And I'm going to get into this pretty quickly here. But you can't compromise with these people. You have to understand where we are. And there are too many Republicans that simply do not get it. They simply do not get it. The left poses an existential threat. I don't want to hear Republicans saying remember the days when we could disagree to disagree and go have a beer, what we not living in those days. We get freaking radicals that want to take over America. Those days are gone. The first thing we gotta do is beat some booty, some left wing booty, and then later, once they cry, uncle, we can say, all right, you can be a part of the prey. But on my terms, but right now we gotta kick some booty. Let's stop thinking what we can get along with people. Stop thinking that you have to be liked by people. This is what governor Ron DeSantis and his team get the left are never going to like you. No matter how much ass you kiss, they will never like you. They hate America and they hate the people that love America. This is simple. This is really, really freaking simple. I don't want to hear this crap anymore. After elections, after they repent, after they turn around, after they work with us to make America great again. Then we can say, great, bob. Let's go out and have a state, but not until then. Right now we have to crush them, or we lose America. Is it time to ditch Mitch? Is it time to ditch Mitch? I just talked to you about a Republican that got it. They get it. Governor Ron DeSantis. Trump gets it as well for all of you that may be tuning in. I'm not knocking him. He gets it. He made some mistakes, but he gets it. He gets it. Now we got Mitch. Is it time to ditch Mitch? Three big blunders hat tip. Showing Mitch McConnell isn't the legislative genius that he thinks he is. I'm not sure if this is right, but I think this is a very good article by Chris Jacobs and the federalist. On that note, let me just remind you, please.

So it isn't just the per Kel sheets, but the berkel sheets right now, there's an amazing deal going on right now. But all right, going back to this article from the federalist. Three major blunders that Mitch McConnell in the last year. It has managed to pull off three major blunders. So he's been outmaneuvered by the left several times and we see this, we see this now with this, the latest is with this latest, basically new green deal package. That's ultimately what it is. The password mansion. By the way, Manchin, Manchin is up for reelection in 2024. Let's make sure that he doesn't get reelected. Now, in a Trump wave, you know, several, what was it at 18? Basically, oh, no, actually it was a Democrat wave. Democrat wave. I guess you could say that in 2018, although I wasn't as bad as the media would suggest. But in 2018, in a basically a red state in West Virginia, Manchin held onto his seat, he won by three points. He won by three points. Considering that he has just totally sold out to his base or against his base, hopefully that'll change. Manchin needs to go. All of these people that pretend to be moderate and just cave to the left. They need to go. They're destroying America. Manchin is no different. You know, for a short, brief window, I allowed myself even all these years, I've been calling Manchin of phony. I allowed myself when he stood strong for quite some time because I thought he was going to cave early on to the left, and I was like, this guy is really standing strong. I can not believe this. You know, they would even some of the lefties. I forget what Bill last year or even swam out to his little canoe out to his houseboat and I was like, man, this dude is gonna cave. This dude is gonna cave. He didn't cave kyrsten sinema didn't cave, and I was like, man, okay, maybe I was wrong. Well, no, I wasn't. I wasn't. Should have held onto my intuition..

"But the left poses an existential threat. I want to play this audio clip for you. This is of Anna Navarro. And basically, here's the summary. So the GOP is getting it at least Ron DeSantis communications team is getting it. They're not playing the game. They're not going to going along with these corporate media rigged interviews where they're gotcha moments and where they get to smear smear Republicans and try to make them look bad. The truth of the matter is we don't need the views of the world. We don't need a Republicans. I'm saying we don't need the CNN's, the MSNBC's. Or any of these media outlets because now we've got our own and we can demand basically by not giving them interviews that they come to us and I understand that people will feel differently. I understand there's conservatives out there that will say, hey, listen, listen, if we go on to some of these platforms, we can expose more people to our worldview. And I don't necessarily disagree with that, but I also think there's an inkling now that the left has gone so far left, even as far as the media is concerned, I think you're gonna get more viewers and more listeners that are going to seek out in search for more mainstream or conservative moderate to conservative mainstream ideas and outlets. I think people are gonna start searching, searching for them. Because you can only exist in an echo chamber for so long. And the left, the left does exactly that. Well, Ron DeSantis and his communications team get it. I want to play this audio clip for you. This is of Anna Navarro of the view. There's other, there's other ones out there that have been bashing Ron DeSantis, but I'm just gonna play this one clip. I want you to listen to it. I want you to pay attention. And then we'll talk about it afterwards, and I'm going to share some more nasty things that some of the hosts of the view, some of the hosts of the view have expressed about governor Ron DeSantis and what he decided to do. And then after we do that, I want to talk about Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell has been duped. Three times. At least three times. In the last year, by he's been rolled. He's been rolled. He's been rolled by chuck D Schumer, have tip Rush Limbaugh. And recently, he's been rolled by senator Joe Manchin. Now, I was one for the longest. I was like, don't trust Joe Manchin. Don't trust Joe Manchin. And then Joe Manchin seemed to take so much heat. I was like, okay, maybe this guy's legit. I gotta give him props, even though I didn't really want to. But no, I should have stuck to my original instincts. He's a traitor, and he has been. Maybe those words are a little bit too harsh, but he's definitely a phony. Let's put it that way. All right, but before I get in further to that, let me play this audio clip of Anna Navarro. Then I want to talk about, I want to talk about this. And this goes along with my thing today. There are Republicans that get it and there are Republicans that don't get it. And what I mean by those that don't get it, I mean, some Republicans really don't understand the times that we're living in that the left and the Democrat party, the progressives of the Democrat party, they pose an existential threat to America to American exceptionalism to American sovereignty. And so here's Anna Navarro. Okay, so you heard what Anna Navarro had to say..

"Plessy versus Ferguson constitutionalizing racial segregation is wrong And what's telling is the Mississippi solicitor general arguing for the law closed his oral argument by comparing roe versus way to plessy versus Ferguson essentially elevating the access to abortion to the horrors of a post slavery America where segregation was considered acceptable That's the level of shift that we have seen around this issue of abortion It's a dramatic change from how abortion has been litigated frankly since row which is how do we tinker with the test Now we're talking about do we throw the test out So Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell and those that promise to put justices on the court that we're going to roll back that constitutional right they could have made true on their promise We'll just have to see People need to understand and justice Sotomayor was very clear on this If a court rolls back this right many other rights are on the table Because just like abortion is not in the constitution the right to marriage is not in the constitution The right to choose your own healthcare is not in the constitution The right to decide what your profession will be The right to associate with certain people that you want to associate with none of those things are expressed in the constitution So if this conservative court is going to say listen if it's not in black and white the original constitution or one of the amendments you don't have that protection against government interference We could be a very very different America under this court Justice my oars remarks she's getting right to the heart of whether the Supreme Court has now morphed into a political tool and she used that expression will this institution survive the stench of such an effort Right and she wasn't the only one that was concerned about that justice breyer also very worried about that But she did a really brilliant job as a lawyer of narrowing things down and saying listen okay nothing's really changed as far as science So why would we disturb bro If they turn this around roe versus wade the legitimacy of the court which in my mind is already deeply deeply damaged based on what happened with SBA in Texas might be pretty much gone for the next few generations It will be seen as an arm of the Republican Party and rightfully so frankly In the spirit of fairness and for those listening who are abortion rights opponents what did you find as a particularly powerful set of remarks from one of the conservative justices Frankly justice Kavanaugh made the arguments that I believe were the strongest arguments on behalf of Mississippi We're talking about two sets of rights here The rights of an unborn fetus in the rights of a woman and how you balance those rights how do you decide at any point in time someone is giving up a right A woman is or the unborn is and it's almost an unanswerable question The state should decide this through the legislative process It should be the people at the ballot box And the.

"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..

"Allow me to explain how the democrats have put mitch mcconnell in the driver's seat on the debt ceiling the democrats are so busy trying to pass reconciliation and the bipartisan infrastructure. Plan together as one thing. They forgot the debt ceiling was upcoming. The republicans told them. You need to put it in reconciliation and the democrats said. We don't have time and we're not going to do it. You're going to vote for mcconnell. Said nope macos not a bluff. He's not playing chicken. The democrats are maneuvering to put mcconnell in charge of the whole process. How so what happens is if you don't put the debt ceiling reconciliation. The debt see. Lead is a filibuster piece of legislation in the senate that means the republicans can block raising the debt ceiling so after the democrats have spit. they're five trillion dollars. The republicans blocked the debt ceiling for beat raise. So the money can't be spit. Democrats and their friends of the media. Say it's a default. it's not actually a default. What happens is the treasury secretary will have to stop paid for all the discretionary parts of the budget to pay the interest on the national debt so more payments for schools no more salaries for federal employees. None of the stuff. Everything goes to service the debt until the debt ceiling increased so mcconnell refuses the last time the republicans refused to go along with the debt ceiling. in greece. The democrats had to agree to equestrian. Sequestration was the first time it was mischaracterized by somebody that actually was real world. Real time cuts in the federal budget. It wasn't just cuts to future growth. It was actual real cuts and the last time of the republicans who were most opposed. Doing a sequestration were those who were worried about military but what the obama military did is. They didn't route out waste fraud and abuse to save money. They cut legit programs and so what. The republicans learned is that the democrats will never do the right thing when it comes to military spending so you might as well cut the pentagon budget and let the chips fall where they made the you can't let the democrats used the pentagon and hold it hostage and say if you if you do sequestration we're going to cut all the stuff because you're gonna do it anyway. This puts mcconnell in the captain's chair driving a locomotive right over the democrats agenda because to raise the debt ceiling. They're going to have to concessions. The democrats run this entire process through without ever giving the republicans anything in fact they rubbed republicans. Noses in the bipartisan infrastructure. Plan because the moment the republicans agreed to one point five trillion. Then joe biden. Ansi pelosi amount said. Well now the democrats are gonna pass this three point five trillion it. If we don't pass all the stuff you didn't want we're not giving you what you want. That really struck republicans badly. It left a poor taste in mansion and cinemas mouse as well and so the republicans since then have been waiting for this moment to come. The democrats have been so distracted by the continuing resolution by the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill by the rest of reconciliation package. It never even dawned on them. The ditsy would have to be raced. They have no room in their legislative process to fit.

"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..

"Was supposed to be on one hundred twenty four hour surveillance by sheriff some of the election tiger to activist do our spying. The warehouse are keeping their eye on it but the the federal the officials who were supposed to be watching it when they went off duty shortly thereafter twenty minutes later and alarm went off. Adore of the warehouse was seen to be a jar and no one replaced those officers for hours later so there doesn't seem to be any evidence of tampering. It does call into question that there might be chain of custody issues. So this story continues to unfold and in k. and some of the bad press that he's gotten or the attempted bad press as like. Why are people still fighting this thing. Six seven eight months after the election. Will he started in december. So we were. We were following this. We started interviewing him every single weekend. In december and we were eagerly awaiting january six because we anticipated that there would be a process as they went through the electoral certification state-by-state. That there would be an opening to have an investigation. There was reason enough to have a couple of weeks investigation and then the the incident that happened on january. Sixteen six actually disturbed the process that election integrity activists wanted to proceed. So i always considered that a false flag and mitch. Mcconnell comes in at the at the end of that day. I mean they just let the national guard go home on may twenty third mitch. Mcconnell returned to work that evening so the quote insurrectionists all got on the bus by sunset and he went in and then certified the election. That is a really really vici- efficiency process and one of the other things that we saw videos coming out of cops walking co-protesters the capital really fishy spoken on stuff and Another even more obvious example came up over the weekend where there is a video that appears to show a republican. Senator state senator. I think in oregon letting quote violent protesters into the capital that. I didn't see anybody who looks violent. But this just adds to my feeling that this stuff was a setup that these that that the that it's an inside job or astroturf or however you want to call it. But i don't buy that and i do see though the purpose of it all is to what i've been anticipating since obama era that they're going to put these elections in the hands of the feds and then you really won't have any transparency either only so many cops the you can see open doors for violent protesters before you go. You know. maybe this wasn't too legit right. Maybe they weren't actually just trying to read iraq like like as if they were taming lions you know like they were trying to redirect these quote violent protesters militiamen armed with selfie sticks the halls anyway. But it's not just the republicans. It's not just mitch mcconnell. Who's at fault here. Who is under scrutiny. I saw it today an article. That said that mansion who. I've just he's like the worst meets the democrat warmongering democrat. It could be worse than that school. He fiscally profligate republican. It's the welfare warfare superstar. So so mansion was was called the basically new mitch mcconnell which i would agree because they both seem to be traitors to their party anyway. Yeah well the the I read today about joe. Manchin the democrats have an a built going through called the four. The people act which is really beefing up not election integrity. Obviously but you know permission to vote. I'm guessing they just want as many democrats to vote as many times as they want But mansion apparently decided he was not you know right now it's essentially a fifty fifty split in the senate so in order to have this..

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