"The you know in the early years where they decided to fight back and that's when they return to power. This stinks to me like they're just in them. Permanent minority mindset or. They're getting a lot of money to bring back to their states and they don't care about all the other things that are going to happen as a consequence and they they self-aggrandizing way to go out and they actually argue there. The conserves actually heard this guy from north dakota not hoven the other one actually say that. They're the real concerns. I saw this guy cassidy. Unhinged on television going on and on about how this was going to suck the moderates into their position. I'm thinking you are are so so brainwashed by inside the beltway in the associated press praising these people for what they're doing they're like certain supreme court justices once they get on the court fill they just flip and they're led by mcconnell mcconnell and eighteen of his colleagues voted against thirty of their colleagues. How can you be the republican leader when you're the minority of your own party. I honestly i don't know what's going on. And i think that you know what's frustrating is that what's going to happen is democrats are going to push through his three point five trillion bill and all these republicans will vote against it. And they'll try to convince us that they oppose the big Biden bill But the reality is that this grease the wheels for the whole spending this. This was something that they needed to get. Everyone you biden said that this was in tandem. pelosi said they were connected. Schumer moved them both unparallel parts. This was they had a tricky job to try to get Legislation that mansion and ao could both vote for and republicans. Did them a huge favor by getting a few weeks ago mentioned had said if the bipartisan fill bill falls apart the whole bill falls apart. So as far as i'm concerned any republican who voted for this rim structure. Bill should be treated by us as having supported the entire four trillion dollar bill because democrats certainly see it at the same thing which is exactly why right after the vote. Mcconnell runs to the microphone and says we've got a defeat to stomach kratz socialist bill with defeat because he spinning his own constituency spinning. The american people just like democrat.

Johnny Cobb possible joints with a fast interview, and most importantly, we will eventually get your calls on Day two of election 2020 joining us live in studio, WSB radio and television political analyst Bill Crane Bill, not It's not often. Someone bumps me off TV in the morning and then invite him on my radio show at night. So you're in rare, my friend. No, I like to be considered a special friend of the market. I was so happy this morning. So the producers in my ears like Hey, we got a bill Crane interview coming up. We're going to keep your traffic. I was like, Yeah. Thankyou, Bill Crane. Anyway, Thank you for coming in. Folks just getting in the car. Now they've been out of the loop, perhaps with the election today, they've been at work. Where do we stand now? Will start nationally. Where are we? Nationally with the presidential race. The racist titan with Joe Biden now having 253 of them needed 270 electoral votes. Most recently, the state of Michigan was called for the Biden campaign. Wisconsin is leaning and the direction of the Biden camp. Nevada is has been leaning, but Biden, but they basically have flipped back the calls on Nevada Arizona. Those tabulations are ongoing. North Carolina is in the president's column. But as absentees and tabulations continue there, there's a possibility of change of outcome, and Georgia continues to be in the president's column, With the lead shrinking as more ballots are counted in Fulton, the cab Cobb and Gwinnett County's in the Net net is the path for the president. 2 to 70. The doors are closing. Heywood need to pick up a majority of the states that our outlying the vice president really only needs two more states and he's over the top, so the path looks much better for Joe Biden. I do think Donald Trump will hang on by the barest margins here in Georgia because even in Fulton County, where he was being beaten three toe won a number of votes left. Don't measure up to 80,000 votes, which is the gap that's left between the vice president the president, so I expect the marginal narrow considerably and may forced the Purdue Ausaf race into a runoff, but that Donald Trump will still hang on to George's electoral college delegates. WSB political analyst Bill Crane, joining us on the market and show Pennsylvania the president Ah has tweeted multiple times up. Pennsylvania. Today we're winning Pennsylvania big with the secretary of state just announced they're millions of balance left to be counted. Where do we stand in Penn's Woods? Currently? Well, you know, as I've kidded a few times today with some degree of seriousness, I think they're still voting in Philadelphia today, so Pennsylvania has a history in close elections of being not only a battleground, but having Problematic tabulation, so the president's campaign is actually suing to stop counting in Pennsylvania and several other states. I do go ahead and forecast that whatever the outcome, this is going to be on Very litigious mess on the back and much worse than we experienced in Florida and the 2000 election. Not that it'll change the outcome. But a lot of lawyers are going to make a lot of money suing various states over the tabulation. Accuracy of absentee ballot counts, recounts. And in Wisconsin, where there is there, less than 1% vote threshold automatic. The president's campaign has gone ahead and triggered and requested a recount of the bounced the balloting in Wisconsin. President Trump has has declared victory just a little while ago he heard vice president Biden not declare victory but confident that they will become victorious. There is definitely a distinction between what the two candidates said the MCA nations of how this plays out going forward. Let's do a little hypothetical game. Let's say Joe Biden gets 2 to 70 and the president doesn't concede and there's there's lawsuits that what what do we What can we expect going forward in that scenario? One wants the Electoral College meets and declares in December, The 12th will know before Then there were his final. But Al Gore did not concede in 2000 after multiple recounts in the Supreme Court weighing and I was there for that inauguration, and that was a pretty chilly Handoff in the White House and on the stage and you know George Bush had to walk past Al Gore Tipper to get to the podium and be sworn in and you know, we survived. There will be a peaceful transition of power. This president As a lot of weaknesses and some strength, but he will not bunker in at the White House and expect the Pentagon to keep him in office. If if he loses this election, it'll probably a painful month or two for him as well as the people around him in the White House, and I expect he won't be much help in the two Senate run off. We may have here in Georgia. But he'll he'll give up the office and move on. There doesn't appear to be anything that we can point to you right now legitimately and call outright fraud. But it does make one nervous. The longer these windows go, North Carolina will accept ballots. Postmarked to Election Day is lays the 13th of November and that window in close election states does create both opportunity and Some degree of interest and fraud. WSB political analyst Bill Crane in the Mark M show, have we heard from Republican leadership whether McCarthy McConnell McConnell's been on the record earlier said there will be a peaceful transfer of power. Have we heard from them? Aside from McConnell's own race about what's going on with the presidential right? I think there's a general I won't say peace, but The blue wave did not occur. The tsunami did not sweep out members in Norridge numbers of the Senate, there was actually a net pick up by Republicans of four members in the House at this point, perhaps more, based on some races that still haven't.

Who was forced to sit in on company conference calls discussing what white people going to apologize. And make up for their privilege. Are you listening to this? Apologize for the white privilege. I have a real question for you out there. Okay? And I'd like an answer from those of you who think it's cool to rip down statues? When will the Vandals in barbarians be stopped? Who will stop the Vandals and barbarians. Trump talks tough The other day. I cheered when he said it should be a 10 year sentence for tearing down statues. He was right. Tom Cotton, a certifiable Iraq war veteran. One of the best man in our Senate said the same thing. But where is the action from the corrupt Mitch McConnell McConnell exists as far as I'm concerned on ly to feather his own nest. They are the classic rhino operatives. They do nothing for the nation. Nothing for the people. It's certainly nothing for the future of our nation. So it's falling upon us. We, the people. To defend our nation. But how? What should we do? These are the questions Maybe you have the answers. How is it that a nation that has a DEA that could take down Pablo Escobar. How is it that a nation that has special forces in the U. S Army? That could defeat Isis. How is it that we have a nation of hard core military cannot take down a group of Vandals and barbarians. Ask yourself that question and you'll have all the answers. I watched these movies about Iraq. And I see these men going in and breaking down steel doors, waiting into machine gun fire and hand grenades and stopping them and they can't stop a group of barbarians and Vandals who are burning cities and looting. So it doesn't add up unless this is on purpose. It's all happening on purpose. It's not happening by chance, because this could be stopped. Could have been stopped. You've got little girls who hate people. Mainly white men. Putting on the Internet. Ideas and plans on how to how to vandalize statues. That's called crossing State lines. To come in a riot. It's a federal offense, Mr Trump. You don't need to write new law arrest her. Arrest those who are teaching others how to pull down statues. They've crossed state lines on the Internet. Did you hear what I just said? They've committed a federal crime. You don't need to write new law and have some cockamamie rat left wing bum Judge. Slow us down. Arrest them now. Stop them now before it's too late. The American people are screaming for leadership. We cannot suffer any more of these indignities and these assaults upon our Heritage, our culture. In our nation, we cannot take it anymore. Black lives matter was founded by hard core Marxists. Well established. They've even boasted about it on the Internet. What happens after this crisis stage? Normalization. Of the abolition of our freedoms. And what happens then? Demagogues like Newsome. Demagogues like Cuomo. Tell us that we do not need Business is we do not need free market. We need a government. Who will help us And the radical Left wing Democrat Party, the racist left wing Party of the Democrats. Will be the salvation for America. Remember a few weeks ago, I speculated us the widest Pelosi. Why does she want this country to collapse? What are they thinking? And then it dawned on me. It dawned on me that way back when During the Great Depression. The people were dependent upon the government. Not only that, but there was another element to it. Billions were made in the black market. Ha! Now you're starting to get the picture. Coupons. Or given out by the government for basics Gasoline, sugar. Bread, You name it milk.

I wanna talk about it in terms of the current news event that's going on and how the iron triangle is aligned against you. And I just want you to understand, ladies and gentlemen. We're in this by ourselves. Do not wait to be rescued. As a good friend of mine once said a very powerful person in the conservative movement. She told me once we are the leaders we've been waiting for. No one on a white horse is going to come in and rescue us here. This is not going to be any clash of the titans perseus moment.

Listen, ladies and gentlemen, I respect my audience. Why read your emails? That's why started in the beginning. Addressing most people just would let this stuff go when I get emails that are contradictory to a stated belief. I have I talk about them on the show because this is a back and forth. That's what I love about this show you have input. You Email me? I read emails some people object to my stance that I believe President Trump is right? It is time for us in some of these engagements in the Middle East and elsewhere for us to start to reevaluate them or pull back.

What -absolutely crazy even Mitch McConnell and some other Republican senators put out this statement rebuking, President Trump for hasty withdrawals. President Trump was elected. He is the commander in chief. He does not answer to Mitch McConnell McConnell hasn't answered a Trump either we have three independent branches of government. They are to act in their own define roles. The legislative branch is not there to act as the commander in chief. President Trump is entitled to an opinion. He was voted on by the people. They don't like it. They don't have to vote him back in again, the fact that he has an informed opinion about what's going on in Afghanistan and Syria, and the fact that Republican senators had to jump out to this rebuke about a hasty withdrawal and sign onto this letter. Is it the scrapes? The iron triangle it never stops. These people all are vested in a lot of this stuff. They are vested. In a lot of these decisions. They are hoping for jobs afterwards.

And then make a couple points in Ohio states, but very efficient on the offensive end. May have that they have done that. Exactly. And that's why it's been very difficult for Rutgers to get really anywhere closer than eight so far in the second half. And right now the deficit is ten in Ohio State has the ball lobbed the ball to Caleb lesson. The Rutgers shooting fifty three percent to save. So offensively they're doing a good job. Have turned it over. Yep. Yup. So it's top of the key to the foul line. Pull up. Jumper is good. So Keyshawn woods gives Ohio State at twelve point.

Mrs the second long rebound and Baker will track it down left corner. Kiss wide open three. No good. And we're going to get a foul on the floor. I believe that's an Andre western you just found out. He locked arms with marina. And I believe that be the sixteen foul on Ohio State or rather the seven so it should be a one at one. No. The foul on the floor. So west out he is fouled out.

During one one I talked to a hall of fame coach about eight or nine years ago about their team free throw shooting. Why don't you make a? Changes we throw shooting. Players.

That's a fair point. I write I'm so making it a holiday you're not doing that favors other than maybe they'll get eight extra money for working at. There's some holidays, obviously, the, you know, the the fourth of July, Christmas and thanksgiving and January first not all, you know. I hope that it'd be inverse. Somebody gotta work it. Yeah. That is true. I mean that is true. But I think that if most of the nation gets it off as a holiday, then again, it would reinforce the idea that that's what you're supposed to do today.

"Fact that Donald Trump has now thanked robot moolah full full taking action on this poll full pointing out the buzzfeed's reporting may have not been quite up to scratch, although we don't even show that that might be true. As you've explained Jacob out. Will we now see Donald Trump continuing to attack the Millar inquiry as a witch hunt as he has done in the past because things have really changed not arena. Now, haven't they? Yes. He will continue to talk mowers which I mean there. There's just no question about that. He this bought them a temporary public respite. But I mean, Trump is Trump is set in his ways and one of his ways attacking any perceived source of criticism or weakness and. Muller inquiry is not going away. They're going to continue to push Paul Manafort, they're going to continue to produce headlines, which are at best deeply inconvenient and at worst fatally threatening to Trump's legitimacy. So I think if we don't see a tweet before Friday with which hunt in capital letters. I would be I would be shocked. It's always a bit frightening to us someone to hazard, a guess on this sort of story, but a given the freeze in the United States government shutdown is continuing what would be you'll guess on who's going to make the next move to try and find a solution will Trump be trying to come up with another way of negotiating or is it now up to the Democrats to to have a good thing. I think it's actually up to Mitch McConnell McConnell, actually, despite the fact that he's been extremely quiet leading to various Democrats trying to get the hashtag, where's Mitch trending. I think it really is down. Onto him to present something, which the Democrats who control the house can agree to and which the president can sign wall, saving some minimal degree of face McConnell has not demonstrated that he really wants to do this. I think but I think he's the he's the sort of quiet partner and all this who's sent will be necessary. He already has five or six members of his caucus who have focal said this is stupid. Let's reopen the government and negotiate about a wall with you know, members of the coast guard getting paid and food inspectors on the job, and you know, the various important things that the federal government does on a day to day basis happening. So I think it's just a question of the adequate leverage being brought to bear on the Connell rather than Trump or Pelosi because they're both for different reasons. I think pretty sad on their courses..

"Democrats want to talk about home ownership equality, but not everybody should own a million dollar home. Doesn't work that way. Bottom line is everybody gets to what they want. And he worked for it. But the left wants people to believe that you know, the governments there for them. It's going to help them get whatever it is they want, and I don't see that. I haven't seen it. Bottom line is that the government a government involvement is cost America's Americans lots of money from healthcare across the board. And I'm gonna tell you right now before I go into this deeply the CVS. Walmart split is a big deal economically over over former Ceuta calls, the Atma CBS merger is going to impact you and I at great deal bottom line. My name is package Sal to five seven five three hundred sixty the number. We go to Joel Joel good morning. And thank you for going back. Thank you. I appreciate you taking my call. You had made a comment earlier about politicians that when they get elected. They're not just. Shouldn't be self-centered anymore, but are working for all of us. Correct. And I completely agree with you. But the one person the one of the most powerful people in the country is Mitch McConnell McConnell has refused to bring any piece of legislation that the house has passed the Senate for. And his own words were. President will sign it. Don't tell me who is Mitch McConnell representing people of his state and the United States or is he fronting for for the president of the United States. You know, I I to sit here and tell you I don't believe he's fronting for the president Joel being funny. I'm being serious. I don't think in honesty that McConnell supports the president down deep. I think McConnell is looking at this like I haven't we have no choice. But I think the Republicans are realizing, you know, what we have a voice we can we can we can speak out. I don't necessarily know if McConnell is a great leader for the party. I'm not necessarily a strong staunch supporter, and I will sit here and tell you look at McConnell, and I look at all these elected officials that have been in Washington for so many years and to me, they're just stale. It's time for them to move on. All I I agree that it is time to move on. Which is why I support the idea of term limit. I agree with that one hundred percent. But here's the problem in your in your beginning monologue. You basically place all the blame on Democrats for this shutdown. No, no, no, no. I tell you what I said when I said is that they're now going to own it initially was President Trump's call. But because they're refusing to make any kind of negotiating. Offer. It's not working. Here's the point. There are pieces of legislation that both houses of congress approved and voted on prior to the shutdown and rather than them going to the president's desk after he was threatened, and I call it a threat, by Limbaugh and Coulter. Basically, you know, backed down and said I won't sign this legislation. So you believe Coulter Limbaugh and even Hannity have more power over the president, McConnell and Schumer and company here. No question in my mind, because he thinks they represent his base and without his base. He has nothing. I think that is is an over an overreach. How's that? But. Well. I'm not saying, you're right or wrong. I'm just in my opinion. Lynch. But then how do you? How do you? Explain him just backing away from a deal, and that was a compromise deal that both sides of the aisle and retail and voted on almost unanimously if not unanimously Howdy, how do you? How do you handle explain him backing away from that? I'm gonna throw one at you. How do you explain the one point six billion initially on the table, and they took it off the table one hundred percent. But that was that was the amount of money that was originally offered before the shutdown before the shutdown, they withdrew it. I didn't he was not going to. He wanted more money. He wanted five billion. And why why would the Democrats billion did not come up until after he got pressured by Limbaugh, and and ochre? So you're thinking that you're trying to say you're telling me that the president was not motivated by fellow Republicans in office. He was motivated by radio announcer and radio prognosticators while. It seems that way given his actions. The only way I can. I hope you're I have to say this. I hope you're wrong, I do too. But I mean at the same time you make a valid point. I mean, let let's just put it this way. My biggest issue regarding everything first of all liking, the president is one thing disliking was another. But to try to impeach somebody. You dislike in all. And all again, there was a news report that just came out that ninety percent of all news media outlets reported negatively about the president the other thing that came out that was really apparent is that the number one story was always the Russian hoax. I don't believe the president will conspired with the Russians to get himself elected. I really really don't. I I swear to God. I don't that's the mother can argue about that. I don't see that. But what I can stay here and say without question is that I think he is pissing people off financially when I look at billionaires trying to make a case to get rid of him. I'm like why because they're they're lining their pockets at the expense of American people. I think the American people. On as a whole are getting ripped off from top to bottom by people that we've elected into office simply on a daily basis. The fact that I get it. I get what she tried to do saying there's a lack of security she got over overrode, and she was told that's not true. And then she decides she wants to fly out and he takes her in a behind. But the thing that he did. That was interesting. I wasn't a knee jerk reaction by her to create this trip. It's not like, no, I agree with that three days ago. That trip was in the making for months, but he didn't know about it. How how does that? How does that happen? He didn't find out as soon as he found out about it. What did he do? He stifled that he put us equal. Right. But did he wait a minute now? Now, let me ask you this back in around Christmastime did it and when the shutdown was young five six seven days wasn't it who went to Iraq to visit with troops for Christmas. He went to for Christmas break when everybody was gone. He went there during the Christmas holiday, and then he came back, by the way. He did you know, he was going to take vacation not a news. Media outlets were reporting his vacation in Florida. He didn't go to far he stayed in DC other than other than go. See the troops. I don't believe that shift and Nancy. We're going there to honor our troops. I think they're going. They're trying to set up a deal for themselves. I don't know that for sure that's my neck. Now. That's speculation. Joel no, kidding joy. Appreciate your time. Thank you got a guy got other calls. I enjoyed the call JD. How you doing my friend? I'm doing fine. What he did to Pelosi made the month through all this shenanigans were however, they may play out for a couple of days we have before he knocked her on pants. Manatee Bela Lugosi, I would ask Mr. Joel one thing does he have a short memory mcgonagall is no friend of mine. I we call them mechanical about. I think he learned everything he he he does from our retired majority leader who house Harry Reid who who never brought any Republican bills practically never onto the floor. He just threw them on the floor of the Senate. So. Grow loggers. What's that saying prologue is something or other? So he could have learned all all the tricks for Barry. I think what he did yesterday garnered a lot more support than even imagine. JD? I thought what he digest that? It was brilliant. You know last night on the on the media. The national media was such a sob story event. They they drug out a woman who works for the federal government who is in such desperate straits. She got her lives paycheck, December the twenty eighth. This is the eighteen. He was selling plasma for fifty dollars to survive..

"He's got to defend a lot of seats. It's a bad map for him. And he has members who are in states that are going to feel much more blue in a presidential election year than they did in the midterm when these people were last elected in two thousand fourteen and so and he wants to he wants to be the Senate majority leader is I'm gonna be the Senate minority leader, and so many skins people liked it. But the other problem is is McConnell himself is up for re election, it a very conservative in a state that has had a democratic governor in recent time, but also has a very conservative tea party esque Republican base in. So he is trying very hard to not be the person who undermines Trump on the wall. And he's been very good about this. He always when it was bainer and McConnell McConnell was either in the majority of the minority, and we were in some sort of standoff with the Republicans. He. He always made sure that sort of bainer had to be the one who took the fall, right? He would wait back to the last minute. Let banner step on seven hundred rakes in a sideshow, Bob fashion, and then come into the end in fix it. And here he's in this position where now that Nancy Pelosi is in charge. If he puts something like there is a well he could easily solve this problem. But in doing so he would have to commit will be considered treason for maga- nation, and he's he doesn't want that on his on his resume heading into a reelection. But in do in taking that stance it by putting himself over the country. People are getting hurt. And it does not it really does not feel like there is any the possible solutions for this are McConnell does the right thing, which is not actually a possible solution because that require him to do something. He has done before or Trump has two fold which were required. Trump to do something. He doesn't not naturally do. Which is why we've been in the stalemate for a very long time. How do you think this ends? I don't know. I mean, I don't need. I this is this is I I thought I made them all -mergency thing was going to get us out of it at some point. But I mean, I still think that that is like the one thing is Trump is not encumbered by his previous statements. So he can. And he can still do the national emergency thing that is that is still as authoritarian and dangerous as it is. It is still seems like the only the most. Palatable solution for Trump, which is he can get out of it. He can say he fought for the wall. He can still lie in claim that he's trying to build the wall. And then liberal courts can stop him from doing it. And then he can complain about liberal courts. And then use the judiciary's argument for his reelection to the people who may be mad about the lack of a wall. But I mean, there's I think there was a real world where we could be in this for. Many more months. Oh god. I I don't know how that happens. I mean, the people are sort of like hanging on by a thread right now, these federal workers who aren't getting paid like I don't know what happens to folks in another couple of weeks when they've missed two paychecks three paychecks. I mean, I don't in the ripple effect. Now, you know businesses in the DC area businesses in places where there are a lot of workers and a lot of other states around the country. You know, are really starting to feel the effects of this. So I don't know. Here's a question for you. Where the fuck is the business community. Yeah. Yeah. We're the old the old economic council that Trump convened, you know. We're all those playful like like so imagine this like we're not inspecting lettuce right now at the at the normal levels. Right. Like our food has patrons are down if you own a restaurant chain or a food company. And then you are and there is some sort of food borne illness that happens on your watch that is devastating to your business..
