A highlight from Ethereum ETF LAUNCHING Monday?! (Leaked SEC Documents)
"Good morning, everybody. It is September 28th. It's 1130, and it is time to discover crypto. We got Tim and BJ on the ones and twos. How are you two doing today? I'm doing fantastic, man. Alright. Ready for the show. BJ, are you in the silent era? Yes. Okay. He's in the silent era. Guys, we got a great show today. We're going to talk about the Bitcoin 1 %ers. We're going to talk about ETH futures ETF and how a senior analyst of ETFs at Bloomberg thinks it is going to be approved on Tuesday, folks. And that's why maybe you're seeing this huge, huge pump in ETH and a lot of alts as well. Also, we're going to talk about Gary Gensler getting roasted. We're going to replay the clip of the Pokemon cards. It's just too good not to share. Also, AI is alive. It's alive right now. How soon do we have a Terminator 2 style D -Day? Give it about 30 years. 30 years, folks. 30 years. Alright. We'll go ahead and start building the bunker right now. Yes, DC's in the suspenders. I know. If you just had the green bow tie, you and McHenry. Alright. One, I'm not going to wear a bow tie. Nothing against bow ties. Just bow ties aren't for me. I'm going to wear a regular tie with the classic winds or not, or I'm going to wear the suspenders. Yeah. This used to be my old bartending get up. I'll tell you what. You wear the suspenders in the button -up shirt. I'll wear the hoodie, but I'll wear the bow tie with the hoodie, and then we'll complete the whole ensemble. Okay. Okay. So you'll be like Fetterman, and I'll be Fetterman's, like, lowest level employee. Exactly. Yes. What were you going to say, BJ? That's like Voltron, yeah. Yeah, yeah. Then we'll team up. Alright. Well, let's just get right to the market cap story here. Alright. Where are we at? Whoa. Did you see that pump right there? Yesterday, we were up around 0 .4%. Today, we are up 2 .3 % for the crypto market cap. We had passed 1 .1 trillion. 24 -hour volume for the first time in a long time is above $50 billion. We're coming in at $52 billion. Bitcoin dominance, Tim's looking a little happy here. It was 47 .1 for a few days. It is now up to 47 .3. Gas, surprisingly low, only 20 Gwei, but it's actually about double of what it was yesterday, but still pretty low. I was surprised to see that. Alright, let's look at the pricing here. We have Bitcoin up 2 .1%. It is now coming in at 26 ,858 bucks. We have Ethereum past 1600, now 1638. It is up 2 .5%. BNB up 1%. XRP up 0 .5%. And we have Cardano up 1 .6%. Solana. Solana is pumping, folks. We have it up 2 .6. And TonCoin erasing about a third of the losses of the past week. It is up 2 .7%. But I'm ready to look at some of these top gainers. Ooh, look at Bitcoin Cash as well. Have you ever thought about trading Bitcoin SV or Bitcoin Cash? Because they do have pretty big moves. Yeah, no, I mean, they definitely are probably better for trading, especially if you want to stay away from leverage, but you still want to be able to utilize the moves of Bitcoin. But yeah, I haven't ever done it. Don't think I will. Okay. Alright. Well, let's look at the top gainers. Let's look at the top losers here. Wow. We have Compound. It is skyrocketing, folks. And Compound has shot back into the top 100. I have RollBit up 12 % just for today. I have a little bit of exposure to RollBit and a little bit of exposure to Apecoin. And I have a couple comic book issues of Thor, but I don't know if that will affect my pricing there. But it is up 10 .8 % and Apecoin up 7 .4%. Bitcoin Cash coming in as the top five gainer here, followed by Lido, DAL, then Aave, GMX, Maker, Arbitrum, Stacks. And then, hey, look, a little Chainlink way down at the bottom. Do you have any of these alts? You're not much of an alt guy, right? No, I mean, I have alts, but I don't go that deep. The moment I have about eight of them, Aave is one that is close to being on the list of maybe I'll come into it. You know what? You don't want to get into, though. I've been watching a lot of maybe... I think he's going to come on the show in the future. Shout out to Crypto Archie. Archie's been going really deep in some degens that are sitting around like a $4 million market cap, and their chances of 100Xing are greater than others. I do think I'm going to start looking into a real good degen portfolio. It's probably not going to take up more than... 10 % is probably being generous in my entire portfolio, but I like where I am. I'm definitely very top -heavy when it comes to crypto. I'm more conservative with my investments, but I'm going to take a little bit of risk this market. All right, BG says, BCH is my secret crush. My dirty girl, he calls it. Where's the one person? A million dollar vision. We're going to give you a million dollar vision. Hopefully, you can stick around and just be part of that positive message. I believe you will. I'm believing in you. All right, well, speaking of believing, I'm believing today we'll not have any of these these coins in the biggest losers of the top 100 cryptocurrencies here. I'm manifesting it. It's failed in the past, but today I'm feeling good. Let's go ahead and look. What do we have? We have Casper. All right, I'm not pale as it goes just yet. Casper is down only 1 .2, then followed by tethered gold. So this is a peg to gold price here, then gate, then another gold. We have another gold coin essentially losing here, then injective, and then stable coins. Wow, I escaped it today. I escaped it today, but gold's on the way down and I have exposure to gold. So does that count? Any day that stable coins are in your top losers, it's a good day for crypto. All right, can we, before we jump over to the top story here, can we look at some gold pricing and silver pricing here? I want to look at gold on Kitco, and if you want to look at silver, maybe we could check out some prices. I like Kitco, K -I -T -C -O. Here we have gold pulling up. Gold is down $14 for the day, so not a whole lot there when the price is coming in at $18 .61. How soon until ETH passes an ounce of gold? One ETH almost equals one ounce of gold. Costco starting to sell gold. I looked into it. They sell out usually within hours whenever they limit two per customer, but they sell one ounce nuggets right around spot price. All right, what do we have for silver? I don't know if this is the right one or not. I looked it up. This says CFDs on silver. Oh, you're a trading view guy. We like trading view. Shout out to Marcus Seifer. Price slightly down, but it's definitely got a consolidation kind of pattern going on here. Yes, we're still kind of moving, setting some higher lows, but we kind of flat out here. After kind of getting kind of in this region, we've flattened out with these lows. The resistance is getting lower, but I'm going to go ahead and say, Deezy, I think that this is a pattern. Watch what happens to support. We're back down at support, but this is a pattern I would almost lean more towards a move to the upside. Let me look at oscillators on this. Yeah, I'm feeling like that's bullish. I'm feeling like that's bullish. Plus, silver has underperformed relative to gold in the past 10, 20 years. I'm feeling pretty good about it right now. Yeah, no, the charts on the daily chart look more bullish than bearish, I would say. It's kind of sitting somewhat in the middle, but more bullish than bearish. All right, and we have Danny Boy saying, look at 100 coin. Maybe, maybe. We'll see. I don't know. Maybe we'll get some time here. All right, well, let's get into the top story here. ETH, futures, ETFs. What is it going to mean? I also got some short form content. Guys, we have an article talking about these Bloomberg analysts. I'm just going to do the deep dive as well, so let's read paragraph or two, and then we'll just see what exactly they're talking about. Let's go to the source material. Let's go to the source code of the simulation here. Bloomberg analyst shares information leaked from the inside that SEC on Ethereum futures ETF. They gave the good news date, folks. We're talking about Eric Balchunas. He's the senior ETF analyst. We're not talking about the janitor there. We're not talking about, you know, the guy that makes a tweet every now then. We're talking about their senior ETF analyst. And he said in a statement, he has inside on info when the SEC will approve the ETH futures ETF. Now, we know there's inside information. Who's going to have better inside info than Bloomberg senior ETF analyst? I'm feeling pretty good about this guy's sources. Now, you got to be careful. Never trust anonymous sources. But if I'm going to trust one, I might end up having to trust this one. All right, let's see what exactly were they talking about? It all started. Let's James Safart here. Nothing yet, but watching for filings to indicate Ethereum futures are indeed being accelerated for launch next week. All right, so what was he talking about here? Here's a repost from Eric. So Ether future ETFs could be trading as early as Tuesday, folks, as the SEC looks to speed things up and in order to get it done before the looming shutdown, just like they sped up delays on spot Bitcoin ETFs. If so, issuers likely in mad scramble as we seek to update the doc. So we have the government shutdown to thank for this actually getting sped up because we covered it I think two days ago. We looked at when the government shutdown happens, what happens through the individual agencies. If you weren't here, guys, SEC will reduce 90 % of its workforce, CFTC along the same line. So 10 poise, there's only going to be one showing up in that office. That's going to be a very lonely office. So what they're trying to do, they're trying to clear all the paperwork off the desks before it's just that one guy alone. I feel bad for that guy. Who is that guy? Shoot us a message here. All right, well, let's go back to X here. So he was quote tweeting this tweet from 14 hours ago. Well, let's, uh, let's see looking like SEC is going to let a bunch of ETH futures ETFs go next week, potentially. And then he was quoting this tweet. So let's look at that tweet. And then that was the one earlier hearing they might update so they can go on effective on Monday and trade on Tuesday. They've asked filers to update their docs by fry, uh, Friday PM. Uh, I'm guessing that's the end of day Friday. So they have till tomorrow, 5 PM Eastern standard time, get your paperwork done. If you get your spot futures, I'm sorry, your futures ETF paperwork filed, you might be able to trade it on a Tuesday. We're going to go ahead and get that in submitted on a Monday. So this guys, this could be very, very big. Now we have to wait till Monday, you know, nothing set in stone here, but however, according to the analyst, they will approve, uh, of the applications that candidates who do update it by Friday afternoon, and they will begin trading on Tuesday. Uh, how speaker McCarthy rejected the stopgap funding bill advancing in the Senate on Wednesday, leaving us just four days from the fourth partial shutdown of the U S government in the past decade. It is thought that a closure event would deeply affect the sec. It is rumored that the spot ETF applications were postponed early for this reason. So chat, where are you coming in? Are we going to shut down? I didn't realize we had done it four times in the past 10 years. I would have maybe said two in the past 15. That makes me think guys, I'm, I'm starting to lean towards, you know, if you asked me three days ago, I'm under 50%. I'm leaning towards 50%. I might even exceed 50 % by tomorrow. Where were you guys coming in on the odds of a government shutdown? Yeah, I think I'm a little low. I think I'd say maybe 35, 40 % it shuts down. I think they're going to have to do with both sides, but it would not behoove Biden to have that shutdown happen. There's a lot of reasons why they'd want to keep it open. Of course, there's a lot of Republicans in Congress, they're kind of pushing for it. They probably like it. They want it. I think they come to some sort of deal. They don't do it. Guys, should we just break down the alpha for you? You know, a lot of part, what makes this live show exciting is we can do things like BJ, while you go, could you look up October 19, 2021 daily candles on Bitcoin, October 19, 2021? Well, I'm going to be the idiot in the room as usual. So if we removed the debt ceiling and put it on pause till 2025, why would we even have a shutdown? Because it wasn't the entire shutdown when we would hit the debt ceiling. So that's not relevant for another 18 months. Yeah, that is a very good point on the debt ceiling. I think that that's a great question. So maybe that debt ceiling isn't as final as they made it appear because I was being told, oh, once this debt ceiling is raised, we don't have anything to worry about. And then two weeks later, we all of a sudden have something to worry about. So now we need to think about the next time they give us a debt ceiling raise. What the f are you actually doing here? Is it actually nothing? These game devs really need to figure out how they're building their ecosystem, because these rules just don't make sense anymore. They don't make, yeah, yeah. There's a lot of bugs in the code here. All right, we have the daily candles. See the date again? October 19th, 2021. If we just look at about a 30 -day period, maybe 10 days before to 10, 20 days after. Yep. So this is getting close to the top, but it was the, there's the, we ended up beating it out. But October 19th is right here. So it's this candle. We have one more day. We topped out on the 20th. Hover over the 19th. Right there. That is the day we had a Bitcoin futures ETF here. Move more to the right side. Let's, let's get a little bit in. That's the top right here. Let's stretch that Y axis. Let's stretch it out. All right, here we go. Go back to the 19th. Yep. The 19th, right? Let me go over here. 19th is right here. So in the lead up, it pumped, it pumped, but guys, that was a buy the rumor, sell the news. We had one more day. All right. They probably didn't want, you know, Fox Business News and MSNBC to be like, oh yeah, it got approved yesterday. Look at the price. So they gave us another 24 hours of pump. We've got the pump of metal pumping. Then, you know, a new cycle, you're probably not going to want to talk about it 36 hours later, 48 hours. So we got that pump. We got a nice strong pump for 24 hours. And then it went down folks. And then it went down. We went from, I believe that was about 55K, right? No, no, I'm sorry. 65K. 64, 64 .3. And then we dropped down to what about a week later? We got dropped down about 57 .8. All right. So we went from 63, 64, all the way back down to 57. And then we set in a new all time high. What was the amount of days from that low? What's the date? If you just hover, it gives you the date, right? On the bottom, it gives you the date. So date October 28th, it peaked November 10th. All right. So 13 days later. So a week later, it put in a local low. And then two weeks later, new all time high. Will the spot or will the futures ETH ETF play out in a similar way? I don't think we're, obviously we're not going to go to 4 ,500. We're not sending in a new all time high. But what I'm thinking is we might have a similar chart pattern. You're the Bitcoin ETF. In reality, this is only a period. That means we might have. All right. So that's the date. That's we're five days away from Tuesday, right? Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. Go back five days from that, from the 19th. So go to the 14th, October 14th. 14th is right here. Boom. Nice big pump. It pumped for five days. Buy the room or sell the news. And then it dropped. And so maybe we're going to have a really good next four days. Maybe. You know, maybe I would say that that's a little bit premature. I think we have to look at a lot of different things going on. Obviously, we're getting close to the part where the market was going to top out and go to the downside. I think there, if anything, the case to be made here, even though there was some pump in that happens here, I would only make the case that this is proof ETFs can't save you from the bear market starting. I think there's I think it's a mixed bag. I think it's a little bit too irresponsible to try to say, well, back in October 2021, this happened. Well, there was a lot of things with timing and a lot of other different things. I think let's watch ETF. It will be bullish long term. But remember, futures ETFs allow both longing and shorting. So volatility is more what I'm predicting, not necessarily a firm. Let me play devil's advocate. That was what a lot of smart people thought was going to be the top or near the top. So if you have some, I have to hold this instrument for six months, and it's October 2021, you have one choice. You open in a long in October 21, you open in a short in October 21. I feel like a lot of smart money is choosing short. Well, let's go to today. We're almost half a year from the having. You have a choice. Are you going to open a long today to cash in in six months? Are you going to open a short today to cash in in six months? I feel like then many more people are going to choose short relative to today. You know what, let's actually that takes us into our next story. Let's talk about the big investors. Will they choose Bitcoin? Will they choose Ethereum? Will they choose, you know, futures or will they wait for spot? Here's what this Fidelity executive has to say. Ethereum investment thesis could be easier for institutions to grasp than this big, then bitcoins. And here is why. This was with the interview with a bankless YouTube channel. I do like bankless Fidelity's director of research, Chris Cooper, I think says the firm's Ethereum investment thesis could be an easier concept for blue chips to understand. With traditional, it's probably more easily go with them something like ether, then show them things where they grasp much quicker than investment thesis for Bitcoin. The investment thesis for Bitcoin, according to Cooper, is to truly understand it, you got to first to dabble into politics, got no little philosophy, got to know some game theory, got to know some economics, got to know some other concepts, you got to know the Byzantine generals problem, you got to know what the white paper is, you got to hate the NSA and the surveillance state. It's a lot, right? It is a lot. I remember that feeling, you know, half a decade ago, maybe more. Well, you know, I learned about Bitcoin, I didn't really get into it to about half a decade ago. I remember watching Andreas Antonopoulos clips on YouTube. And I just, I'm just alone in my living room with, you know, with, you know, maybe Mary J was there, but you know, I'm just alone. I'm watching this and my mind's getting blown here. And I'm just like, my God, I'm just so into what this guy is putting down. And then you go to your friend, and you try to, you're full of zeal. You feel like a religious apostle. And you're like, oh, my God, have you heard this thing called Bitcoin and what it's doing? And then you just get a blank stare back. Yeah. It's like, oh, yeah, I ate the orange pill, didn't I? Yeah. It's taken me back to these feelings here. All right. So yeah, it's a lot. Basically, what I'm saying, it's a lot to wrap your head around Bitcoin, folks. That's all I'm saying. I had the my first exposure to Bitcoin whatsoever was back in 2013. And I was the opposite side of that. What you just said, the staring face. There is this kid I met. He was very passionate about Bitcoin, tried to convince me it was the one world currency that Revelation talks about. He also was a pot farmer. So I looked at him and I said, OK, buddy, good story. Now, it turns out I should have gotten in when he told me to. He he was right. I should have gotten into Bitcoin. But I do hold to when you hear a lunatic who is growing pot for a living tell you that this currency is what Revelation talks about. You got it. You got to at least question it a little bit. I understand people still being stone faced at this point. Yeah. My first two exposure was 4chan and I was like, oh, anything they suggest is a scam, is a honeypot. And they are trying to hack me. And so that honestly, like in a weird way, learning I learned about it from too shady of a source. I was like, oh, yeah, I'm going to stay away from that one. The second exposure was my buddy buying ecstasy pills of Silk Road. And I'm like, again, another thing I want to stay away from. No, man, I'm good. I'm good. And then Silk Road happened. And also he lost his Bitcoin on a hard drive. So I was just like, yeah, I don't know about this, man. I don't know about this. And then eventually, you know, the hook got me there. All right. Well, you know, that's what we're saying about Bitcoin to truly understand it. It is a whole lot, you know, but imagine that you can get in front of them and just say, look, talking about Ethereum, here's the metrics, here's the cash flow, you put in your inputs, and they're looking at it like another financial instrument. And they're like, oh, yeah, that makes sense to me, you can have these scenario analyses where you could get your head around the probabilities. And then that way, people can size their position accordingly. That's how an institutional investor thinks. That's how a good investor thinks. They think around probability scenario analysis. And in fact, they are so strongly about that they capitalize the eye there. That's how institutional investor thinks. They really, they think about the probability scenarios there. So yeah, I think that's a pretty good, pretty good point there.
Fresh update on "msnbc" discussed on The Dan Bongino Show
"Liberals up on Capitol Hill with without, you know, leaving AOC and Jamal Bowman app. They really are dumb. Joe Biden, too. But most of them up there actually very smart people. They're just evil, right? It's not that they're dumb. It's that they think you're dumb. So I explained to you in the last hour why, likely, why Jamal Bowman was the only one dumb enough to pull the fire alarm. And Jim just sent me some stuff I'll cover on the podcast and radio show tomorrow. Apparently, Jamal Bowman, after he got caught pulling a fire alarm, causing an emergency situation on Capitol Hill to what appears to be shut down a vote he and the Democrats didn't like. He sent out some talking points for suggested rebuttals from his office. It was in Max Cohen or something sent out. And one of them was like, the Republican Nazis, that this is real. I'll cover it tomorrow. That's just what they do. So it just kind of doubles down on my point that it's not the Democrats up on Capitol Hill are dumb. Bowman you are dumb. And, you know, I really wonder how the liberals in the listening audience once again this morning, how do you how do you guys live with yourself? mean, I like, how do you get up in the morning with this? I get it. I love Trump. Donald I love Ron DeSantis, love them both. But I understand both of them have flaws. DeSantis could be be a better one on one campaigner. He's just he can be a little wooden at times. Trump says a lot of things said, yeah, you're right. He probably shouldn't say on true social. Not probably. He just shouldn't say. I get it. I'm not naive. I disagree with Trump on criminal justice reform and abortion. Send it publicly. Send it to him. that I acknowledge we have a party. I mean, I just want to, Jim, we just did two hours on how weak the Republican Party is with this C .R. What I don't understand and I'm not trying to play like a moral relative back and forth, like who's higher on the moral totem pole. I'm asking you just a question, just a tactical question. How is it that no matter how part how how poorly your party acts, text parties, crack on tape, bribes from foreign officials pulling fire alarms to stop votes. How is it that there's magically never a Democrat or anyone in the media who goes, you know what, that's wrong. You shouldn't that do because you suck. That's why you are garbage people. And believe me, if it was the podcast like it was this morning, this would sound a lot different. Jim, it is Monday, though, and I think there's a special F .C. No, it's still a no. But there's an October thing, though, first week of October. No. OK, OK, OK. Because you suck. Liberals listening, the liberals out there in the audience. I just want you to know this. I want you to hear this. You ready? Turn this up. You suck. You suck. You are genuinely garbage human beings. I just told you our party is weak. I did. One of the golden rules of this show is that Republicans are not the answer to our problems. However, Democrats are the cause of them. I get our party is trouble. can't. You Jim, did you not notice this? They can never, ever, ever The thing is, like, sane people are getting it. It's why your opioid god You had a congressman this weekend who was a high school principal who pulled a fire alarm that literally says fire on the alarm and claimed he didn't know the fire alarm would produce alarm an as if there was a fire. And Democrats are like, Yeah, he's right. He's right. Freaking idiots. It's right. And you have people in the media, people in the media who, by the way, know exactly what they're doing. People repeating this. Jim, get me an MSNBC lady. Yasmin Vusagayan. I don't know your name. I'm not trying to say wrong on purpose. And I don't care if I am. Let me just be clear because nobody knows who you are. And this is why. Because you have no human dignity at all. None. None. Here she is on MSNBC, repeating this preposterous story. That Bowman Jamal wasn't trying to delay the vote because of the Ukraine stuff, which I just explained to you. If you want a full scoop, you can watch it again on a podcast. But no, no, that Jamal Bowman just, is confused. He saw the crash bar on the door and he'd never, he'd never seen that before. He thought the way to open a door was to go to the lever that said fire and to pull that. And listen to them repeat this, repeat this quickly on a cable news station in front of all the country. Check this out. Last thing I want to mention, and then we're going to a take quick break. There was a mention of Jamal Bowman, Congressman Jamal Bowman, and the pulling of some sort of fire alarm. I just want to read some for you of the reporting so you understand what actually went on there. There were some reports that began to emerge about Representative Bowman who was seen pulling some sort of fire alarm in the Cannon House office building earlier We got a statement on that saying Congressman Bowman did not realize he would trigger a building alarm as he was rushing to make an urgent vote. The Congressman regrets any confusion just to clarify some things on that because I know there was likely some folks kind of scratching their heads wondering what it was they were Do you hear it folks? Jamal Bowman pulled some sort of fire alarm. It's not some sort of fire alarm. It's a freaking alarm painted red that says fire. It's not some sort of fire alarm. Yasmeen Vuzagayan, do you have any dignity at all left in your empty soul? Do you have children? They saw you on TV. Folks, I know you can't see this, but Jim turn on your microphone. You need to walk the audience through this. You're going to be the narrator here, okay? I did this on the podcast if you need the visuals. Because apparently Democrats are so freaking stupid that they don't understand that a crash bar on a door will open the door. And they believe pulling a lever that says fire will open a door even though it doesn't say door, it says fire alarm.

After 148 days, the board of the WGA West and council of the WGA East voted unanimously to lift the strike, effective at 12 .01 Pacific time Wednesday. A judge is ruling Donald Trump and his company are liable for fraud in a lawsuit brought by the New York Attorney General's office. The judge in his ruling found Trump made false and misleading valuations for his real estate assets over the years to secure loans and insurance deals. United Auto Workers President Sean Fain says the union isn't letting up on its demands amid an ongoing strike. He spoke to MSNBC Tuesday, the same day President Biden stood alongside members on the picket line in Michigan. The members, you know, being out there standing up for their future are what brought the president here and it's a great testament to see him come here. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy says it would be very important to have a meeting with President Biden to prevent a government shutdown and address the border crisis. McCarthy is hoping to pass a bill that would pair a short -term government funding extension with a series of border policy changes backed by Republicans and opponents.

yeah thank you for that yeah okay well otherwise otherwise he just ends up cooked for the sharks and generally they like it wrong, they're sushi fans really yeah don't don't you you just hope that at

up by some of them in the in the mainstream media like like stop saying this is about democrats you know or that or that that it's congress doing it it's not it is it is republicans that are that are being held hostage by their own people yeah i do love though that they think they've got a chance to rid get of matt gates to expel matt gates i love that they're just saying they're going come on

Steve Schmidt: 100 Days Legislative Timeframe Is Racist
"Well, that kind of narrows it down. How did this guy get in front of the Canadian Parliament, folks? I have no idea. Liberals are so dumb. I But again, the point is everyone's a Nazi to the left except actual Nazis. here's what I mean. Cue up for me. Cut five. This is Steve Schmidt. This guy's just a clown. He's an A clown, a total A clown, if you know what I mean. This guy was a Republican grifter. He wound up losing just about single every campaign he was involved in got smoked. So now he figured he could grift off the MSNBC crowd. So he goes over to MSNBC and spouts out a bunch of nonsense talking points. Listen to how they work, though, because this guy's a modern day liberal, even though he pretends to be a Republican. Anyone who doesn't toe their line is a Nazi or a fascist, except actual Nazis. Take a listen. The people who are trying to tear down democracy in the country keep telling the rest of the country what it is they plan to do to such a degree that they have announced their plans six months into 2025 to have taken apart the whole of the federal government. Now, since FDR's time in office, the legislative metric in the United States has been 100 days, not six months. This is a racist code whistle to every white supremacist in the country because it's how long it took Adolf Hitler to take one Weimar to Germany a complete and total dictatorship. Folks, these people are freaking crazy. They are absolutely nuts. There's an actual Nazi up in the Canadian Parliament. They can't see that, but they can

Trump, Others React to National Poll With Trump Leading Biden
"So much rather be in this position of having an incredible record for our president to run on what's his record folks what what I mean what what is the record I want to MSNBC know they came out with their poll and I got it's not that bad actually tied 4646 this other poll is wrong right that's that's what they've said they're now coming out and they are just like this is just flat out wrong ABC News recline he described this new poll number as quote alarming and staggering for the sitting president United States of America listen these numbers paint a bleak picture for presidents Biden's reelection chances Rick yeah and Martha maybe the most startling number in our poll is this the hypothetical matchup a rematch of Donald Trump versus Joe Biden our poll with the Washington Post pegging this at 51 % so for Donald Trump over Joe Biden that is a nine -point edge now that's only points a difference couple of from our last poll in May but it is significantly different than most recent polls it is an outlier compared to other polls we've seen recently our partners at 538 put together an analysis for us they find average an of recent polls having this more of the one or two point range with Joe Biden typically having the edge but whether you believe that or not look there's a good chance that there's people just trying to send a message in the polling right now given the other frustration we've seen we know in this poll there's some some quirk some oddities around the number of black voters and Hispanic voters the younger voters who seem to be supporting Donald Trump and get this because it's pretty hard to believe but we people ask whether Donald Trump should be constitutionally disqualified for running for office and among people who said yes yes one in five about 18 % say they'd vote for Trump anyway so that might just be sending a a message that's more anti -biden than it is pro -Trump but regardless the weaknesses that we are seeing for Joe Biden

"American allies and the American people and the people of Ukraine that you can count on our support. We will not walk away. President Biden says he's tired of brinkmanship over government spending. Nathan, Speaker McCarthy says he supports Ukraine aid, too, but he wants to pass new border security measures first. American border matters. And that that is our priority to make sure we secure that. Speaker McCarthy made the comments on Face the Nation from CBS, which you can hear Sundays on Bloomberg Radio. Well, the next question, Karen, is whether McCarthy keeps his job. Matt Gaetz, the far right Florida congressman and booster of former President Donald Trump is pushing for McCarthy's booster. More on that from Bloomberg political reporter Derek Walbank. McCarthy made his move. Gaetz has said he will make his move in sometime retaliation this week. So now there's a lot of attention in Washington that pivots towards will House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's brief turn towards it cost him his job. Bloomberg's Derek Walbank says Gaetz motion to ask McCarthy would likely require support from Democrats because of the slim Republican majority in the House. So far, it's not clear how much backing Gaetz would get. In other political news this morning, Nathan, California Governor Gavin Newsom will appoint Emily's List president LaFonsa Butler to fill the remainder of late Senator Dianne Feinstein's term. Butler will be the only black woman in the current Senate and just the third in its history.

A highlight from All The Polls Spell Great News For Donald Trump
"What a wild weekend. You can't make this stuff up. The Washington Post produces a poll that shows that Trump crushes Biden head to head. And then the Washington Post itself says, now, don't believe the poll. It's probably an outlier. They trash their own poll. They're so worried about the momentum that this is giving to Donald Trump that they're trying to discredit their own work. You know, these aren't cheap. They spent considerable money on this poll, thousands of dollars, and their takeaway after the poll points towards Trump defeating Biden by 10 points nationally. The Washington Post says, oh, it's weighted in a polling. You should hear the never Trumpers. You ought to hear people trying to distance themselves. I mean, they're running around in Washington, D .C. with their hair on fire. Funny thing about polls. We should learn by now not to believe them or trust them. Polling showed that there was going to be a huge red wave in 2022. So we know by now that doesn't always work out. However, in this case, what it does do is provide a semblance of momentum for one Donald J. Trump. And in this case, the perception can become the reality. The momentum keeps going. He keeps building. He keeps growing in popularity. The numbers keep soaring. And again, it's more of a perception thing than it is reality. Here's a reality. can The Democrats scream about a rigged election all they want, and nobody bats an eye. If anybody on our side questions the outcome of an election, we're crazy election deniers who ought to be in jail. But when Hillary does it, it's A -OK. Check this out. Here's Hillary sitting down with circleback Psaki, who's got her own show now over on MSNBC. Listen to Hillary still squealing about election interference and Russian collusion. Vladimir Putin has obviously your friend, your friend and mine. He has intervened in our election in the past. It's not something, as you experienced firsthand, it's not something we talk about a lot. Do you fear that that is something that could be happening for 2024? And do you think we should be talking about it more? Well, I think we should be talking about it more because I don't think despite all of the, you know, deniers, there's any doubt that he interfered in our election or that he has interfered in many ways in the internal affairs of other countries, funding political parties, funding political candidates, buying off government officials in different places. So that is his opus, you know, his opus operandi in the sense that he hates democracy. He particularly hates the West and he especially hates us. Now, you know what I love about that? Her use of the word deniers. You talk about projection. So what she's trying to claim is if you say that Trump won legitimately in 2016, you're not a denier when the truth is they're the she's the election denier and she thinks it happened in 2016 and she thinks it's going to happen again.

"Listen I'm not sitting here telling you Leo that if you're a conservative and you commit a crime you should be given a pass it's not what I'm saying I'm simply suggesting to you and I think you'd agree being a civil rights attorney that the idea of blind justice is that everybody's treated equally you screw something up here are the penalties and the penalties are the same for both people if they did the same thing with the same conditions but that's not what happens Leo you know it I mean BLM and Antifa you know burning down attacking courthouses people nothing happened to them at all yeah you look at the you know the January 6 people find themselves in the gulag I mean this has to be deeply impactful to a guy like you whose whole life's been dedicated to civil rights it's hurtful because you want to treat everybody equally and then you know the Democratic Party has abandoned the whole concept of what Dr. King said you judge people by their character not by the skin and ever since the 2020 riots Dan that has been abandoned by the left and the Democrats and by Merrick Garland I've been practicing law for 30 years I think second place would know what I know the law and when I hear Merrick Garland during this hearing today say I don't recall know what he's saying I'm not going to tell you the truth I'm not going to tell you when you hear that phrase I don't recall I don't are you kidding me I know that phrase everyone every good lawyer knows that phrase There's pride to avoid answering the truth but I'm going to tell you something Dan CNN and MSNBC they're abandoning Joe Biden guess what they're covering the congressional hearing so the message is getting out now Dan remember it used to just be one or two stations they're now covering it they're now what's happening in that congressional hearings and I'll tell you right now everyone in this country knows that President Trump has been treated unfairly it's a double standard if you're a conservative it's a double standard talk about that Virginia parent who whose daughter was assaulted talk about the man who was charged facing those charges on the abortion clinics in
Rep. Ken Buck Eyes CNN Job While Criticizing Biden Impeachment Inquiry
"The probe launched last week in a Biden's alleged corruption including with a September 15 Washington Post op -ed that other Republicans said included glaring inaccuracies. Buck said privately last month that he was interested in a job at CNN. The source told The Post. After he weighed other options over the past year including joining a DC -based law firm or seeking Biden's nomination to the Federal Trade Commission. I guess he's gotten close to the Biden administration because he wants things. Buck 64 confirmed to The Post he's exploring his options and said it would be great to join CNN. That other head case, Kingsley, was CNN producer MSNBC one of them. Buck said in a phone interview quote I'm interested that recently. news organizations, I don't want to call them left, but sort of left center and having an opportunity to do that full time or do that as a contributor would be great Buck said in a phone interview. Congressman called back later in the day to say that he'd also expressed interest in a position of right -leaning Fox News or Newsmax. It didn't want to give you the impression that I've only talked to folks at CNN on the left. I've also talked to others about this and Buck represents a vast rural district that spans the entire eastern border of the Rocky Mountain State and said Tuesday it was unclear if he will leave office this Congress, Fox next Congress or whatever. I'd vote his ass out. If he's not sure he wants to represent you, then you should be sure that you don't want him to represent you because obviously his interests elsewhere. In my personal view, just my opinion is affecting his outlook. I want to say

If you did a motion to vacate, you would have to a handful of Republicans work with Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Ehan Omar to remove the speaker. And it would be exactly what the president wants. During an interview on Fox News Sunday Morning Futures, the California Republican said ousting him would shut down the house and stop the impeachment inquiry against President Biden. McCarthy also brought up what it took for him to secure the speaker's gavel in January. He was elected after a historic 15th ballot.

Is FTX going to crush Solana's price right now? You see Solana's hanging around $19. Does FTX sell off of its crypto assets? Going to push that thing down to $10, $5, even lower. Okay, what's the news? Two days ago, FTX was given the green light to sell off their crypto assets. The crypto asset that's got everybody in a tizzy is $1 .1 billion in Solana. Okay, and there's a lot of people fearing what's going to happen if they were to dump the billion dollars worth of Solana. Why is the billion dollars of Solana worth, you know, why is it such an issue? Well, guys, it is roughly 20 % of the entire Solana amount that is circulating into the supply right now. That is massive right now. Okay, it's $1 .1 billion. But here's the green light. Here's the silver lining to this cloud, everybody. I don't think FTX is going to absolutely destroy Solana's price. And there's a few reasons. Okay, first off, the $1 .1 billion, it is that much Solana, but they don't have access to that much Solana. I've been watching Sopranos, so that's why you saw my hand do that. Now, the $1 .1 billion, you know, so that's the first wrinkle. They don't have all the Solana. The Solana is locked up on what they call a vesting schedule. Now, a vesting schedule is when you go on a boat, and then they say, alright, everybody put on your life jacket, that stands over there, and then everybody, now you put your life vest on. But no, this is a crypto vesting schedule. Crypto vesting schedule means, you know, usually a linear drip of daily, monthly, something like that, you will be given your crypto allotment. You have this allotment of crypto that you're going to get, but they don't give it to you all at once. You know, maybe if you get in, you know, you invest in a company, you invest in a protocol, or, you know, maybe you're one of the founders, you'll have a vesting schedule where they'll do 1 % a month, but they'll do it for 100 months. You're seeing something similar with Ripple, what they're doing, you know, they're dropping a billion a month on a vesting schedule. Well, Solana has a vesting schedule for FTX. I actually printed it out. I have the vesting schedule right here. A couple takeaways. It's not going to be fully vested, meaning FTX won't be. Okay. I'm talking about five years from now. There's some that's going to end in 27. There's going to be some that ends in 2028. And there's a bunch that does end in 2025 as well. So they don't have the $1 .1 billion of Solana right now. Guys, that's not even all of it. They're also limiting themselves to how much they can sell per week, because they do have other assets. They have Aptos, they have ETH, they have XRP, they have the Bitcoin, they have Wrapped Coins as well. They're only going to limit themselves to $200 million a week, okay, because they also have a half billion dollars worth of Bitcoin in addition to the billion dollars worth of Solana that they have. So you can see here, you know, it's broken down. Shout out to Masari Crypto, and they're just using the Solana Foundation website for their reference there. So it's going to be a lot of selling pressure for Solana. But that's going to be normal situation. A lot of VCs got in on this token. I don't think FTX is going to be selling all this Solana, though. And they can't sell all the Solana. So it's going to be broken down. It's going to be slowly but surely. I didn't mean to call you Shirley. Shout out to all the Shirley's in the chat. Make sure you hit that like button. 200 million weekly, vesting till 2028. The founder is, you know, FTX, he's potentially going to be locked up. The trial starts next month. Is that bullish case? You know, it's going to put more attention on FTX. It's going to put more attention on Solana. And it's going to permeate and, you know, percolate in the mainstream news. And all news is, you know, news, right? All publicity is not necessarily bad publicity. I'm not saying it's all good publicity. But you're going to have more and more people hearing Solana, hearing FTX, hearing, you know, oh, what is that? And then what's retail going to do? The retail is going to say, oh, you know, that sounds real scammy. But let me paint a scenario for you. They're watching Fox Business News or MSNBC. They're talking about Sam Bankman -Fried. They have the court sketch drawing. You see the curly hair. They're like, you know, what is it? Oh, yeah, that's that guy that the Bernie Madoff of crypto. And then let me point something out to you. What if they show the Solana price chart to the millions of normies? What do you think those normies are going to feel when they see that price hanging out at 20 bucks, then jumped up to 40, and then jumped all the way up to 250 and then back down? Okay. And then they see it. Now, where do they see it? They see it back at 20 bucks. Maybe they start doing some thinking like, hey, maybe I buy five of these for $100. It used to be 250 bucks. That'd be $1 ,250. You mean my $100 could do a 12X? And then someone's going to say, yeah, and some are saying, predicting of an even higher price next pull run. They're like, whoa, Solana can hit $300, $420? Okay, now sign me up. So I think we might see a little bit of retail offsetting a little bit of the institutional dumping. I am bullish on Solana in the long term. I do think it is. It is fast. The chain has been shut down numerous times. But when I bought NFTs on the ecosystem using Magic Eden, it has been a relatively good experience, although I never tried to trade when it was down. I'm sure if I needed to trade and Solana was down, I would have a much different opinion. But I do think it can hit new highs. I don't think it's, I'm leaning towards unlikely, but there's a lot of smart people who disagree with me, and they think it's more likely than not than Solana will set in a new all -time high. I do think it can certainly hit 100 bucks again. I think it can probably hit 200 bucks again. I think there's a lot of sell pressure there. So just be careful when you see all this Solana FUD, you see the FTX, you're thinking, you know, oh, the market cap's, you know, $7 billion, and they have $1 billion, $1 point something. They're going to dump it all. This is going to crater the price. It's FUD. I'm not saying be super bullish on Solana. Definitely don't be super bullish on FTX and SPF. But when you see the fears of, hey, a billion dollars is going to hit the market all at once, it is not true. The vesting schedule is going to 2028. Big drop off, a big chunk ends at 2028, a big chunk ends 2027, and a big chunk ends in 2025. So guys, this is years from now, perfectly timed up with that bull run. You know, maybe that was part of their planning with the vesting schedule there. So just be careful out there. If you are going to buy some Solana, don't bet the farm on it, but at $19, it doesn't seem like the worst thing in the world. Alright. Hope you enjoyed Discovering Crypto with Deezy.

A highlight from Week in Review - Episode 23
"We get it. You're busy. You don't have time to waste on the mainstream media. That's why Salem News Channel is here. We have hosts worth watching, actually discussing the topics that matter. Andrew Wilkow, the next D 'Souza, Brandon Tatum, and more. Open debate and free speech you won't find anywhere else. We're not like the other guys. We're Salem News Channel. Watch any time on any screen for free 24 -7 at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Welcome to this week's Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review. What a week it has been. We saw a president fail to acknowledge the events of 9 -11 by giving a speech in Anchorage, Alaska, of all places. Then he lied about it. It was an amazing thing. I mean, what a week he has had. The news for Joe Biden is bad and keeps getting worse. For example, we talked about Biden's visit to Vietnam where they literally had to pull him off the stage. Man, oh man, did you see him in Vietnam? Holy moly. They had to pull him off the stage because he started babbling like an idiot. That's the president of the United States. And listen, we better hope he runs in 2024. Let's pray for once that a Democrat's ego torpedoes their chances for reelection. Because if he runs, there's no way Americans can vote for that. There's no way. It's impossible. That's not wishful thinking. It's, it's, you know, September of 2023 and they have to yank him off the stage. They did everything but take out that old vaudeville, the big hook, you know, you put the whole, pull the hook out and drag and then do a little soft shoe off the stage. Some disembodied voice comes over the PA and says, that's it. The press conference is over. And he looks around baffled and says, thank you everybody. Thank you. Where do I go? Where do I go? Don't throw me down, Clark. Certain sharp -eared listeners know what reference I just made there. Let's listen together to grandpa Joe. I want you to, I want you to hear what it sounds like when a president of the United States literally gets, gets the hook. They're so embarrassed for him. For whatever reason, he wound up in Vietnam over the weekend. Maybe air force one took a wrong turn and it landed in Vietnam and his appearance there by, you're going to hear about it all day long today on the news, at least on normal news. You might not hear about it on ABC, CBS, or NBC, but I'm not sure that even they won't cover this because it was this bad. Check this out. We talked about, we talked about at the conference overall, we talked about stability. We talked about making sure that the third world, excuse me, third world, the Southern hemisphere had access to change. It had access. It wasn't confrontational at all. Thank you everybody. This ends the press conference. Thanks everyone. I mean, what a disaster. And then he, then he goes and shuffles off. That's the president of the United States. The music is the best part. When they started playing the lounge music, Robert is in Sarasota. Robert, you see that clip? Yeah. Can I first use your platform to say, um, my thoughts and prayers are going out to everybody today, uh, that we're victims or new people. Absolutely. 9 11. And to follow that up, our president of the United States is booked 3 ,467 miles away into Alaska. You can't get farther from New York than where he's going to be today, where he canceled oil and gas leases. And clearly there's a God because that's exactly where he belongs as far away from New York. Here's the headline that every American who is suffering through the Biden administration needs to know 22 years of never forget. And Biden is spending 9 11 in Alaska. Meantime, we still got the, uh, the occasional troll or the occasional malcontent caller to the Mike Gallagher show. And I had a texture who claims that it's not really free speech to yell fire in a crowded movie theater. Of course, we're talking about all of the Democrats efforts to shut down speech. They disagree with beginning with Trump on down. And I played a montage of the Democrats denying the 2016 election to anyone who says that Republicans are a bunch of election deniers. What do you say about all the prominent Democrats who insisted that Trump didn't win in 2016? I just got a text from Macomb County, Michigan that I want to share with you. And then I want to play a little clip for the benefit of Macomb County, Michigan, and listen to this Michigan texture. Thank you. I mean, I appreciate that you don't agree with me and you think I'm a, I'm rotten to the core and you, and you, you, you hate my, my message on, on the radio and TV, but that's okay. I appreciate dissent and I, and I am truly intrigued. I always wonder, does the left do leftists like Macomb County, Michigan really feel this way? Or are they just regurgitating talking points that they've heard on MSNBC and they've read in the New York Times? It is a fact that election laws were changed and the election process was wildly upended under the guise of COVID. It is a fact that we had an historic amount of mail -in ballots. It is a fact that we had a record number of ballot harvesting. We things know were changed in 2020 under the pretense of COVID. That's a fact. And I'm not yelling fire in a crowded theater by stating those facts. That's their go -to. So let me read the whole text to you. And then I want to give you a video response, Macomb County, Michigan. And I challenge you to text me again. I don't want to embarrass you, but I'm going to challenge you to at least text me your response when I ask you about the video response that I have to your text. Here's the text. It is not free speech to yell fire in a crowded theater. It is not free speech to perpetuate a well -proven lie that there is some absurd sweeping conspiracy that stole the 2020 election and use that lie to divide people and disenfranchise millions and millions of voters. What you people are doing is destroying this country. You are working to drive the wedge between everyday Americans deeper and deeper. And you're just doing it because there's a market for it. Either you are willfully lying and towing your party line, or you're dumb enough to believe this trash yourself. You should feel deep, deep shame for perpetuating your lies. I hope one day you realize the damage you're doing and are tormented by your own guilt forever. Okay. Now, over the top drama queen hysterics aside from that text, let's take a look at the substance of what that person wrote. They want to sit there and accuse anybody who questioned the outcome of the 2020 election as somebody advancing an absurd sweeping conspiracy. So Macomb County, Michigan, what do you say about this? Trump didn't actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election and he was put in office because the Russians didn't appear. Trump knows he's an illegitimate president. The president of the lack of a legally elected is not legitimate. I don't see the president as elect a legitimate president. You said you believe that Russia's interference altered the outcome of the election. I do. We have a president who is in fact it is proven has been assisted by the Russians and may in fact not be a legitimate president. The one thing that Trump is fearful of when it comes to his being president is that finally we will see how illegitimate his victory actually was. I have an objection. I object to the 15 votes from the state of North Carolina. I object because people are horrified. He's an illegitimate president. Do you believe Trump is illegitimate president? What I believe is that there's no question that the outcome of this election was affected by the Russian interference. There absolutely is a cloud of illegitimacy. So that legitimacy is in question. Yes. That was a very tainted election. And in that sense, it's illegitimate. Now, Macomb County, Michigan, I dare you to write me back and follow up to your original text and condemn all of your hero Democrats the way you condemned any of us who questioned 2020. You see, you don't get to have it both ways. Meanwhile, back to Grandpa Joe's refusal to attend any of the 9 -11 ceremonies in New York or Shanksville, PA, or even where he lives in Washington, D .C., to commemorate that awful historic day in America's history. Tulsi Gabbard said it best on Fox News. Biden has decided he wasn't going to be bothered. He'd be up in Anchorage, Alaska. It's outrageous. It's last night on Fox News for those like myself, many patriotic Americans across the country who enlisted because of the jihadist attacks on 9 -11. I find it deeply offensive that he specifically chose to turn his backs on all of those families and all of those Americans. White House is saying that, you know, presidents don't show up to Hawaii on Pearl Harbor after all these years. What's the point? It's insulting beyond words. It was even more insulting. I don't want to say even more insulting. It was also insulting to hear in the speech that he delivered during that fuel stop in Alaska, him lecturing the American people about how it is our responsibility that we must take seriously to defend democracy. And he is saying these words, lecturing us as he and his administration, every step of the way, are undermining our own democracy, both by his politicizing the Department of Justice to go after Donald Trump, his major political opponent in this upcoming presidential election, his going after and changing the rules of the DNC to make it so people who vote for RFK Jr., their votes won't actually count. He is sending his Department of Justice after parents who are trying to stand up for their right to their children's education. I've been thinking a lot about the difference, the major differences between the right and the left in America. For example, the MAGA movement. The putting America first philosophy is met with such disdain from progressives and leftists and Democrats. But when you think about it, putting America first is something best exemplified by Donald Trump's policies. Putting America last best sums up the Biden Democrat approach. Judge Jeanine Pirro summed it up that way last night on Fox News as well. Well, it's consistent with his America last mentality. I mean, this is unprecedented. No president since this happened has not been at one of the sites, whether it's Washington, Shanksville or ground zero. And if you're from New York City, especially, I mean, I was in the city that day. I remember the smoke in the towers. I remember, you know, my investigators saying we've got to get home. We've got to get back to Westchester. This is a very sacred day for so many people. And the president doesn't see it that way. And the sad part about it is that, you know, the world is not a safer place now. It's because of Biden now that the Taliban is back in control in Afghanistan with all the weapons that we left there. We've got an open border now with people coming in that we don't even know who they are. And you can thank Joe Biden for all of that. You sure can. You know, one of the great mysteries of life for me is wondering if this kind of crap is intentional or accidental. And I ask this question all the time. Does Joe Biden and his team say, you know what, we're going to be the first administration in 22 years not to attend a ceremony in Shanksville or Washington, D .C. at the Pentagon or at Ground Zero in New York City? We're going to we're going to change the game a little bit. We're not going to appear. Is that a mistake? And as if the actions of Joe Biden weren't bad enough, egregious enough, the governor of New Mexico, some woman by the name of Michelle Lujan Grisham, decided to amend the rights of citizens of her state. Albuquerque in particular, she declared an emergency because of an incident involving the death of an 11 year old child. The governor said, well, there's gun violence. I get to declare a declare an emergency and nobody gets to carry their lawfully registered and certified guns. We must remember. The liberties, the freedoms that so many have fought and died for. And this new New Mexico governor has literally banned Americans who have a constitutional right to protect themselves from being able to carry in Albuquerque and the surrounding county for at least the next 30 days after a child was killed in a road rage incident. It's it's it's extraordinary. What's law enforcement doing in Albuquerque? What's the sheriff doing? The police chief. She's sitting at this press conference next to a guy who looks like a police authority. He's got a big gold badge on. And he looks very uncomfortable where this lunatic governor is shredding the Constitution, declaring an emergency, a gun emergency. This is what Democrats, if you dared to question a lockdown, if you had any skepticism about vaccines, if you wondered about masks, they came after you. They shut you down. Be kind of interesting to talk to an airline pilot who lost his job or her job because they wouldn't want to get they didn't want to get a vaccine. Do you realize we were firing people for not getting vaccinated? You recognize the absurdity of where we were just just a very short while ago? It's called tyranny. What the New Mexico governor, Michelle Grisham, is doing is tyrannical. She's acting like she's the emperor, the king, the dictator of New Mexico. And they're going to keep doing this and they're going to keep doing this and they're going to keep doing this until they can't do it anymore. Everybody ought to be aware of what she's doing, because what she's doing is absolutely un -American. What she's doing is obscene, where on Friday, this New Mexico governor banned people from being able to carry guns because a child was killed during a road rage incident. She's decided to declare an emergency. Oh, we have a gun emergency here. So now I get to ban your right to keep and bear arms. Check out this exchange. I want to play it one more time in case you're not paying attention. Isn't it unconstitutional to say you cannot exercise your carrying license? With one exception, and that is if there's an emergency and I've declared an emergency for a temporary amount of time, I can invoke additional powers. No constitutional right, in my view, including my oath, is intended to be absolute. There are restrictions on free speech. There are restrictions on my freedoms. In this emergency, this 11 -year -old and all these parents who have lost all these children, they deserve my attention to have the debate about whether or not in an emergency we can create a safer environment. Because what about their constitutional rights? I took an oath to uphold those two. And if we ignore this growing problem without being bold, I've said to every other New Mexican, your rights are segregated to theirs. And they are not, in my view. I mean, this is lunacy. I pray for her safety. I pray for Joe Biden's safety. I pray for Trump's safety. I pray for all of our elected officials' safety. So let me make sure you know where I'm coming from, where my heart is. I would never want anything to happen to any of the people who are elected to hold office. But I wonder if she would be willing to have her security detail suspend their right to protect her.

I'm taking several classes, enough to make your head spin, with the amazing Claremont Institute. They have these online evening courses that push you intellectually, and they're just amazing. And right now I'm doing with Michael Anton on Machiavelli, if you can get a word in edgewise. But the guest is the man behind all of that with a very, very important book called The Narrow Passage, Plato, Foucault, and the Possibility of Political Philosophy, by Glenn Elmers. Glenn, thank you for taking time. Welcome to the program. Thank you, Charlie. Great to be here. You're one of my favorite students. Well, thank you. I actually do the reading. And I have a lot to catch up for because I didn't go to college. Tell us about your book, Glenn. Excited to talk about this. Sure. The elevator pitch is I'm trying to understand some of the philosophical background behind what we could call the woke regime crisis. So the country's in bad shape. We're under a lot of stress. There's tremendous tension. We seem to be under the rule of a kind of strange deranged ideology. So I'm trying to make sense of both the left and the right, some contradictions and internal incoherence on the left. Why? Why does woke ideology seem so strange and bizarre and angry? And so I'm trying to think through some of the ideas, the deeper issues that brought us to where we are. So let's start with the first, Plato. You know, an elementary understanding of Plato, you know, you'd contrast with Aristotle kind of more into abstractions, more into the ideals. The famous, I think, was Raphael's School of Athens pointing to the sky, kind of talking about that in the clouds, Aristotle focusing more on what we can materially see or empirically see. So Plato, obviously being prolific, not something that I consider myself an expert in, nor any of our audience. How would Plato connect with the modern woke? What did he, the first ever philosopher, start the modern project of woke liberalism? He did sort of, and I don't want to make this sound too simplistic, and it would be too simplistic to say all this can be traced directly to Plato's feet, but in a way he is the original source both of our problems and I would say our solutions. Okay, what do I mean by that? The problem is in a way Plato, following his great teacher Socrates, introduced the idea of bringing reason into political life. And in a way that's perfectly sensible, right? We don't want to be governed by superstition and mindless barbaric traditions. We want to be able to make intelligent distinctions. We don't want to live according to deranged, disgusting, primitive religious idolatries, right? And so we want to think reasonably and rationally about how we should conduct ourselves and organize our politics. And Plato is in a way the first to do that, to think about bringing reason and rational thought into politics. But in a way that's also the source of our problems because in a way that's now become deranged, especially in the course of modern philosophy, introducing the idea that experts should rule us without our consent. That you can have people who are so wise, so smart, so well trained, that they can become philosopher kings and we no longer need the consent of government. We can get rid of limits on the government and the wise expert class will simply rule us for our own good. That's obviously a real problem. So Plato in a way is the source of the problems, but in a way I would also say points us to the solution, which is to get back to taking political philosophy seriously. So let's focus on the philosopher king aspect of this. There has been this repeated incantation in the media. Trust the experts, trust the experts, trust the experts. I can't help but think that this is in some ways an extension of the administrative state and I do want to get into that because I think that is what happens when you have this group of people that almost could be say they have the secret gnosis, the secret mind, the secret society, that they know better than us. So can you help build this out? There's a fair amount of pride or hubris, but also Plato said this is how politics should be formed, that you have people that know better because they've been trained and because they went to the right schools. And in some ways, Glenn, the problem with the American project as it is today, we're living under the tyranny of living in the clouds who call themselves philosopher kings. Right. Now it's important to remember when Plato wrote this famous book, The Republic, where he talks about the philosopher kings, he makes it so extreme, so radical, so outrageous and unreasonable that a lot of intelligent scholars say he was being ironic. He was trying to show you just how crazy it would be to live under this regime of philosopher kings in order to point to the limits of politics, precisely to show you the limits of trying to make all political life rational. And in a way then to show we have to be more moderate in our expectations from politics. We have to be sensible about what we can actually achieve in political life. And so it's a lesson in moderation if you understand the philosopher king as sort of an ironic, outrageous idea, which points to something then more sensible. But in modern philosophy, the idea of the philosopher king is taken seriously. And why that happens is an interesting story. It partly has to do with this idea of the end of history. You know, Charlie, Fukuyama and this German thinker Hegel. And the idea is history is unfolding in a process, right? There's an element of that that leads to Marx. And we now are much wiser than the people in the past. We figured things out. We have all the answers. And since we have all the answers and we figured everything out, let's just go ahead and implement all the all the solutions. And that's the presumption of the left, which is we figured everything out. We're so smart and wise and we don't need any limits. We don't need your consent. We're just going to go ahead and do what we think is best. Yeah. As Wilson said, we don't want to muddy up the business of government with politics, a .k .a. we don't want elections to get in the way because we figured it out. Hilariously, Glenn, as a side note, this has been a theme we've talked about is that we're told by our leaders they figured it all out. Yet we can't fight fires anymore. We can't manage our border. We can't do the very basic stuff. I think this would be a time for mass humility, not massive narcissistic pride. Right. No, that's an excellent point. The crisis of expertise is that the bigger their ambitions, the bigger their goals, the less competent they are in doing it. The ordinary things that were actually done. Like making your bed. Yeah, exactly. You know, people complain about the corrupt city machines of the 19th century, you know, Mayor Curly and the big city. But, you know, they built bridges and libraries and roads and things worked and they actually got a lot done during this so -called era of corruption. Oh, I mean, I'm a child of the Chicago suburbs. I've always said that I would rather have the corrupt politician than the ideological one. And our audience attacks me for saying that. I would rather have Mayor Daley who sells out for a buck with the unions. But there was low crime. The trains ran on time. It was a beautiful city. And yeah, he was obviously on the dole. He was obviously cutting deals, but he didn't have some sort of abstract revolution that he was trying to bring forth to Chicago. He just wanted to get paid. That's the idea, right? So this petty corruption in a way, you know, is the idea that if you can make politics perfect and get rid of all the corruption, you make matters worse. This utopian idea that we can achieve perfection, we can achieve heaven here on earth, it doesn't solve the problem of corruption because people are still self -interested. What it does, though, is introduce these vast unrealistic schemes that leave ordinary day -to -day function behind. And so we can't, our bridges and our roads and our schools don't work anymore while we're trying to achieve, you know, diversity and economic justice and all these ridiculous things. And basic infrastructure falls by the wayside. Yeah, I mean, our military, unfortunately, is falling apart. And basic infrastructure, basic things like getting your kids to read, having your young people not kill themselves at record rates, like really kind of basic indicators that your society is healthy. Almost every single one of those is going in the wrong direction. And yet the lecturing we receive is about viva la revolution. We will bring forth diversity and equity. There's this amazing clip, which is Hegel. It's Al Sharpton and Kamala Harris. And I don't know if you saw this, it was MSNBC. You have to have a trained ear to catch it. And Obama said something similar where they talk about this arc of justice, right? How history folds itself out. And meanwhile, you know, the observer that is walking around the cities, these people govern is like the people are defecating, they're doing drugs. The kids aren't in school, but they're like, hey, no, but the revolution is what matters. There's a lot there that I want to unpack. The book, I want you guys to read it, The Narrow Passage, Plato, Foucault, and the Possibility of Political Philosophy. And oh boy, we are going to get to Michel Foucault because that, he was a trickster. I'll tell you what.
Mehdi Hasan: Thank Black Women for Holding Trump Accountable
"All right, I wanted to play this. This is the reason Mehdi Hassan, the moron on MSNBC, left his way into the bronze medal holding position in the dopey media talking at Olympics. He has two appearances on today's show. That's right, too. The first one ridiculously suggesting that school closures are great. School closures is so awesome, man. We need more of those. They're so good because Mehdi Hassan's a moron, a totalitarian. He loves sticking your kids in the house, locking them in the room on a laptop, because that's what totalitarians do. Here's Mehdi Hassan again in another outrageously stupid clip. Judge Chutkin, who happens to a be minority woman, the horrible judge in Washington, D .C., acting like a tyrant, subjecting Donald Trump to things. ridiculous More of them I'll talk about tomorrow to make sure she interferes in the election. Here's Mehdi Hassan. This is what totalitarians do, praising this, suggesting that, yes, look at these minority women getting revenge on Donald Trump, of course, never taking into account that black Americans did quite well under Donald Trump, who made repeated efforts to appeal to black American voters. And we should do that. We shouldn't Andrew to anyone, but liberty and freedom appeal to everyone, and we should make that be known. But here's Mehdi Hassan. He's very proud of the fact that they've weaponized the justice system. And notice how he injects race into it, like it's a revenge and retribution you. You should think that's how crazy this guy is. Check this out. It's never not a good time to thank black women in America services for their to the republic for stepping up again and again to save American democracy through their sacrifices, strength, their their activism, their votes. But this month in particular, we should thank black women for doing what a bunch of white guys have failed to do for years. Hold Donald Trump, hold a former president accountable for his alleged criming. And the fact that
Analysts Are Finally Talking About the 14th Amendment
"But they try to destroy it. You can now see where it's reached a pinnacle, where it's a real movement. It's not in the open. Even some of my friends are talking about CNN and MSNBC, or we even have judicial scholars who are writing about it. Federalist society conservatives, oh my god, they're all in on it now. And those who support it are all full They're liars. Just like a few months ago they said the stood 14th Amendment for the proposition that Joe Biden could become a if dictator we needed to pay our bills. Full faith and credit. Eviscerate Article 1, the core function of Congress, is to determine if taxes should be raised, if spending should be increased and borrowing should be increased. They would all belong to Biden if they had I use my background experience here. I use my reasoning here. That's all I've got. That's what I do. And you pay a price for this sort of thing. And that's OK by me. That's OK by me. Because some days you're in a better mood than others. you Do understand what I mean as a producer? Sometimes this is very demoralizing. But you've got to get up, dust go right back into the battle.
A highlight from Trump Being Booked In Fulton County Jail Is A Sad Day For America
"We're proud to announce our brand new ACLJ Life and Liberty Drive. Our legal teams will be focusing on the issues that you, our ACLJ members have told us matter the most to you. Life and religious liberty. Join the ACLJ in the fight to keep America free. I was actually uplifted by visiting the people here in Atlanta who came out to show support yesterday for Donald Trump. You're going to meet some of these people along the way today as we continue from Atlanta where last night President Trump was fingerprinted electronically, mugshot, which went viral. Millions and millions of people now are sharing his mugshot. I'm sure his image is on the cover of t -shirts. We have t -shirts that say Free Trump. We've been selling them for months. You go to MikeOnline .com, they're 20 bucks and they're good looking t -shirts that a lot of people are ordering. But you know what? In talking to people here in Atlanta, they're angry, but they're also resolute. You know the old expression about the sleeping giant? It feels like people are finally waking up. People are seeing how awful the other side is and they're realizing we are going to have to get this country back. Let me give you an example. I've said to you for years that Nicole Wallace is really, really bad. She's over at MSNBC and it's always jarring because she's such a pleasant looking lady. She's got a nice, pleasant smile and attractive. You just can't believe the vitriol that comes out of her mouth. If I told you that an MSNBC anchor in reporting on Trump being arrested here in Atlanta last night had to hold back laughing out loud at Trump going to a jail where three people had died over the last month. Apparently the Justice Department is literally investigating the Fulton County Jail because of the horrible conditions there. This woman on MSNBC was so giddy, so happy that Trump was going to get processed at a jail where three people had died and she could barely contain her laughter. I got to play this for you. Just a few minutes ago, Donald Trump, the disgraced ex -president, the front runner for the Republican nominee for president, four times indicted, departed his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. He's on route to Fulton County, Georgia via Newark Airport, we believe. He will surrender himself for processing at an overcrowded jail with a reputation for violence and neglect. A jail that is accustomed to holding defendants facing charges up to and including violent crimes where stabbings are frequent. Actually, three people have lost their lives over the last month. That jail is where the disgraced ex -president of these United States is heading right now. They think that's funny. Did you hear that? She's having to, as the headline over at media, I put it, Nicole Wallace had to stifle a laugh as she remarks that Trump is heading to a jail where three people have died over the last month. Had to stifle a laugh. Are you paying attention? Are you understanding how awful the other side is? You know, I had a lot of people take me to task yesterday because you felt that I was critical of Ron DeSantis and you're mad at me for supporting Trump. You know, I've said I'm neutral about the GOP primary and I am in as much as I'm going to support whoever the voters elect to be their representative in the 2024 election. But I'm not going to back down from having supported this man who is a woman, having to stifle laughing out loud at Trump being arrested in a jail where three people have died over the last month. These aren't serious people. These are people who are so vicious and so awful that they think this is all a big game. They think this is all a big joke. Yesterday, Jesse Waters over on Fox News Channel's The Five called Jessica Tarloff out. Jessica Tarloff is one of the resident liberals on that panel. She's really the only liberal. Harold Ford is a Democrat, but he's a pretty moderate guy. I think that's why the former congressman from Tennessee is probably pretty popular for the Fox News audience because he's But Jesse had had enough of hearing Jessica, like Nicole Wallace, find this funny, find this amusing, find this happy. Does Trump being arrested make you happy? Are you glad America's being dragged through this? Do you like seeing this country torn apart? Because as even Nicole Wallace had to admit, this guy is beloved and supported by millions and millions of Americans. And here was Jesse Waters calling Jessica Tarloff out for being happy over the arrest of Donald Trump. I think tonight when he gets mugshotted, I didn't like the way it looks with Rudy. And I thought it was going to be a big viral moment. And you said something that really bothered me the other day. And I've been thinking about it. It's been on my mind. You're going to tell I said something to you and you go, oh, yeah, well, Trump's had been indicted and is facing life in prison. And you made it seem like that was a good thing. OK, so and that's actually a disgraceful thing. And it's a sad thing. And the fact that you're using that as a talking point is it's beneath you, Jessica. OK, so a couple of points of clarification. I never said Trump was facing life in prison. This was a conversation in the break. I don't know if we're going to start amplifying what happens in the break, but that's going to be worse for you than me.

The ultimate goal of Fox and CNN and MSNBC is to create chaos and anger because the everyday person in the United States has more in common than they want us to. Oh, for sure. U .S. SEC not coming out to Cardano. Charles Hoskinson whips it out online, explaining the SEC's continuous crackdown on crypto entities is political and has nothing to do with securities laws. Chuckie Ho Ho, founder of Cardano, believes the United States Securities Exchange Commission will not come after the project's native token, ADA. Interesting. He didn't say not him, but not ADA. OK, that's fine. During a recent YouTube interview on Corey Costa's crypto coins, shout out Corey Costa, a friend of ATB, Hosky pointed out that there has been no enforcement action against ADA so far. Hasn't there been a couple things where people delisted Cardano? Yeah, a lot of exchanges have delisted in anticipation that something happens, but nothing like there's like misinformation out there. I've actually talked to people who think that right now Cardano is in a lawsuit with the SEC and that is not true. Same. Same. Before we continue with the story, hit that like button. Drew, where are we at for likes, bro? Pull that mic down. Let the people hear your smooth dulcet tones. We got two hundred and eighty eight likes. Need to pump those numbers up. These are.

Subscribe to this channel. Leave a comment. Get active in chat, bro. Drew, give me a poll. Who won the debate last night? Poll the audience. Let's get it going. Krit Kratts, Nick Tator hosting very bullish for crypto. Heck yeah, baby. Let's keep on going. SEC is not coming after Ada in two recent lawsuits against the world's leading crypto exchanges. Coinbase and Binance. The SEC classified roughly twelve tokens, including Cardano and a bunch of other ones. Philcon. Yep, Philcon. Oh, Philcon. That's how you say it. Insisting they ought to be registered. Insisting. We're like stamping foot. Should be registered before being listed on exchanges. Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong and Harry's Razor's number one customer once disclosed that the agency had asked the exchange to delist all tokens except Bitcoin as they qualified securities. Isn't it weird that like last week. The CFTC said Bitcoin and Ethereum were both commodities. Yeah, I mean, what's what's the Gary wants control, Nick, but it's over, right? Like no one can serious. No one can take the SEC seriously if another agency says the thing that the SEC says is security is a commodity. I mean, I don't know if anyone has been taking the SEC seriously for a minute now, but we know Gary tries to fight with every weapon he has. And unfortunately, he still has a lot of weapons. They don't work very well, but he still uses them. Yeah, and it's the delay tactic. He wants to delay everything he can. Yeah, yeah. So someone said watching Nick is painful. Well, look. Pain and suffering makes you a better human being, OK? Reject comfort. Watch this stream while I host. All right. Who won the debate last night? Vivek Pence, DeSantis, Trump. I would have put Nikki in there instead of Pence because Pence was just like a buffoon. Anyways, SEC's move is political. Yeah, we know this. Cardano Boss said the one political party in the U .S. which received a lot of money from S .F .F. is trying to show that they are not corrupt. Hence, they have moved from being bipartisan and working with other parties to create crypto rules, to accusing everyone of being a bad actor in time to throw them behind bars. I'll disagree with Hosky here saying there really is only one party in the United States. OK, it's a uni -party system. There is no true opposition. OK, I would say that the Republicans and Fox News are controlled opposition. It's it's the two two wings on the same bird at this point. Would you agree or am I am I being a little too? Oh, no, it's it's extremely obvious the same people own both sides. And I've I've said this before. We've talked about this on Investing Bros that people don't need like I see too many people who are like, oh, if Fox says it, it must be true. And Fox is just a different kind of evil than CNN, but they're owned by the same people. The goal ultimate of Fox and CNN and MSNBC is to create chaos and anger because the everyday person in the United States has more in common than they want us to for sure. 100 percent. They want us to think that if you don't agree, if you're not a Republican, you are the evilest person in the world. If you're not a Democrat or Democrats, you're the evilest person in the world. And they make money by sowing this disunity. Yeah.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 08/25/23
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. I need to know from my Broadway Maven friend Mike Gallagher how many productions of West Side Story have you seen? I think I've seen three and I'm just a pretender in terms of consumers of the compliment. That sounds like an absolute slur. No, no, no. Is that a slur? No, a maven is somebody who is immersed in something, an expert in something, somebody who is well versed in something. Broadway aficionado or as they say in Maryland affectionado. Great, great. Well, last night was a big night. Sit tight, sit tight, sit tight. I do everything for a reason. First answer the question. It's Leonard Bernstein's 120th birthday. I don't know. Close, close. How many times have you seen West Side Story? A few, a lot. It's probably either that or Man of La Mancha or I don't know what is my favorite but it is indeed Leonard Bernstein's birthday born this date 1918. There's a movie about him coming up in November with Bradley Cooper as Leonard Bernstein. A lot of drama about that controversy. Tell us why. Do you know why? Yeah, well he has a prosthetic nose apparently to try to recreate what Leonard Bernstein looked like. He had a big schnoz. He had a honker on him and Bradley Cooper doesn't so they did that but now all of a sudden it's Jew face which is just uncomfortable to say. It's like blackface where somebody white plays somebody black. It's like Broadway maven. No, it's not like that at all. So that's a stupid controversy. Bernstein's own family said we love Bradley Cooper. We love the movie. It'll come out. Now let's talk about the real life drama. The floor is yours, political maven Mike Gallagher. Let's talk drama. You know I love talking about swapping stories. So let me tell you a story. Let me first stipulate. I've got such a splendid team. I've got a team. I was thinking last night, Derek, Eric, Tracy, Adam, these are can -do people. They spring into action. You've got them there in Dallas. You've got Rhonda and of course all your great people around you, Gordon and Matt and everybody. We love to be surrounded by positive can -do people. So last night I get off the plane from Tampa. I'm in Atlanta. It's about 190 degrees here and I say to Derek, Derek, I gotta really hustle. I gotta drop my bags off. Give me the address of where the action is. Tell me where to go because I'm not sure, you know, the Fulton County system where he goes, got it, got it. And Derek goes fast. Sometimes when you go fast, you miss some key details. So he gives me the street address. Now I show up at the courthouse. It's a row of TV trucks. I'm thinking good. I'm in the right place. Look at all these TV trucks. But there are no people. So I'm now walking. Now bear in mind, I'm not kidding you. It is 100 degrees. I'm not exaggerating. It's literally 100 here and the humidity is about 200%. I'm schlepping around, schlepping around the courthouse and I can't find anybody. Finally I see a TV reporter and cameraman. I say, can you tell me where the protesters are? Oh yeah. Yeah. They're two blocks over. Cause I want to interview some people. I want to enter. I'm there to get the action, right? Of course. Of course. And I see a hundred TV trucks. It's gotta be, so I go to us two blocks over. So I go over and there's like a handful of like young people and they're like black and white kids. And I go into the crowd and I said, do you mind, Hey, I'm Mike from Salem radio network. You mind doing some interviews? Oh sure. Sure. I'm glad you're here. We'll talk. And they say, Hey, how are, why are you? They start talking about the police state and the, the, the, the, the authoritarians of the police department. I'm thinking, Oh gosh, I got a bunch of young pro Trumpers talking about the weapons, the weaponization of law enforcement. So then I bring it back to Trump and they look at me and they cock their heads and they say, Trump, I'm like, I said, finally the third kid I interview. And I started to notice there's a, I started to see, well, there's a rainbow flag over in the and background there's a black lives matter flag. This is a strange, this is a pro strange pro Trump group. I said, you're here for Trump. He said, Trump, we're here for Johnny. I said, who the heck is Johnny? Johnny is apparently somebody who was killed by the police. It's one of those police shooting protests. I get on the phone to Derek. I said, Derek, where are the peers? He goes, Oh, are you at the jail? I said, no, I'm at the courthouse. He said, Oh, you're in the wrong place. So now I said, please tell me the jail is a block away from here. It's just cause you're schvitzing like nobody's business. Try 25 minutes away. Try 20. Now, meanwhile, Trattup is, Tom Trattup is texting me saying, you better get there. He's landing. He's at the airport. Trump's on his way. I'm like, now I'm, now I'm running now. By now they've closed the highways because you see for a motorcade, that's one of the dog on his motorcades I've ever seen him. Well, but I want to talk about that with you in just a moment. Because he's just an ordinary prisoner, right? Exactly. Yeah. Just another prisoner. But now I can't get there because the roads are all closed for the motorcade. Cause I've been, you know, hanging out with black lives matter protesters, you know, giving them business cards and show materials. Let's go Donald Trump. And they're looking at me like I'm out of my mind. And then they're nice kids. I mean, they're just upset about a police shooting. Listen, let's put it this way. Let's stipulate Edward R. Murrow in the trenches covering the battle of the bulge. I ain't, I mean me walking around in a hundred degree weather trying to, so finally I get to within about two miles of the jail, the Uber driver Mustafa, who's already annoyed about the traffic. He drops me off two miles from the jail. And as CJ, the great engineer here in Atlanta put it, the jail is in the hood. The jail is in, I'm now walking, well, I'm in the hood walking the whitest guy in America and people are offering me drugs. I've got it. I had a discount on some crack. They're friendly people in Georgia. They're trying to do business with this, you know, white guy walking through the hood, clearly trying to find protesters. So it was unbelievable. And I'm not kidding you. It was, I will put it this way. Let me put this in a very dangerous neighborhood. Okay. And I am walking and I'm walking and I'm cursing and I'm saying I'm going to do things to Derek that third world countries do. I could not believe the position I was in. Anyway, long story short, I finally get there. As it turns out, when I got there, what comes pulling out of the Fulton County jail? The Trump motorcade. So I got video of the motorcade. I saw, you know, the whole procedure. I interviewed a bunch of people, white, black, pro -Trump, anti -Trump, and it all turned out, you know, fine. But it was interesting to talk to all the angry Atlantans who came out to witness this spectacle and they can't believe that their city is front and center in this disgraceful act of the prosecution of Donald Trump. You know, Biden yesterday celebrating the arrest as a great day to donate to his campaign. Did you see that vicious Nicole Wallace at MSNBC? Did you see what she did? Stifling a laugh. She's laughing about the fact that Trump was booked in a jail where two people had died. She thought that was funny. I mean, you know, the great Jesse Waters dressing down Jessica Tarloff calling her out for being giddy about the arrest. It's Christmas in August. It's Christmas in August for them. And as Jesse put it to the liberal on that, this is no time to celebrate. This is beneath you to celebrate, but they do celebrate this because it isn't serious. It isn't legitimate. I mean, this is brutal, just brutal. And, you know, I'm just trying to make sense of it all, Mark, with you and me, and we're trying to understand the enormity of it all. We're trying to survive this. And I will tell you that for people who live in Atlanta, who came in the brave, the heat to stand out there and wave a Trump flag or wave an American flag. I met a guy from South Dakota, incidentally, who came here in a truck convoy from South Dakota and a great. And incidentally, the guy was like, I can't believe I'm talking to you about two years ago. I was yelling at you on the radio when you was out driving and he was the nicest guy. We had such a great visit and we just commiserated about how low we've sunk. Historians are going to look back at this day and say, what were they doing? What did they do? Do you think they will? Well, I won't give you my speech on historians again. Historian is like a constitutional scholar. It's a law. I'm pretty serious, too. It is a lost profession. Historians are political hacks. If Trump does prevail in this, and especially if he is elected and wins, the historians who seem to be working today and dominating today will say that America missed an opportunity to heap accountability onto an evil leader who is elected by the enthralled cult worshiping masses. That's what today's brand of historian will say. I pray to God historians pull their heads out and realize what is happening. Well, I saw Jonathan Turley when I got back to the hotel and I put the cold compresses on my forehead and I got the smelling salts and I sat in the cold tub for two hours to try to recover. Again, a war correspondent I ain't. Jonathan Turley said something last night to Sean Hannity. It's a quick paragraph. I want to read this to you. He says, this is a law professor. And oh, and by the way, speaking of social media, Trump's back on Twitter. Back on Twitter. Eighty six million followers. How many likes? I wonder how many? How many views? I'll look while you share the quote. Go ahead. The quote is this is Jonathan Turley's exact words. This is criminalizing the challenge of elections. You have a Democrat prosecutor saying, how dare you challenge a Democrat victory? That's it. And it's been done before by Democrats, including this one. Red State found all these instances of Fannie Willis questioning the outcome of elections. She's done it before. You have a Democrat prosecutor saying, how dare you challenge a Democrat victory? The case is based on the theory that Trump was it was challenging this election illegally was pointed out. This is the eleven thousand. I need to find eleven thousand votes. The way the way she portrayed that phone call. These are Jonathan Turley's words, Mark. The way she portrayed that phone call is evidence of the bias and unfairness of aspects of this indictment. And to the left and to the Trump haters, this is the whole indictment. I need how many? Eleven thousand. Eleven thousand. Jonathan Turley said it makes perfect sense when you're challenging an election to say, I only need eleven thousand photos or votes. That's not a lot in Georgia. That's not criminal. That's making a case for a recount. Especially when the number is especially when everybody woke up and found that things had changed crazily overnight in a number of states. And there were votes that were being counted that maybe shouldn't have something were being not counted that maybe should have. So, OK, in that fog of uncertainty, find me eleven thousand legal actual real votes. And let's see what we can do here. There's nothing illegal about that. There's nothing criminal about that. And that's their whole case.
Chris Christie: Trump Disrespected the U.S. Constitution
"All right, let's get to some sound. Here was Christie, Chris who I just think looked buffoonish last night personally. I mean, he's trying to play this tough guy role while simultaneously refusing to go on any talk show where they don't his kiss ass. And there's a lot of service area there. I mean, you can't really miss. He won't go on any show. He won't go on Levin, he won't go on Tucker, he won't come on my show. Yet he's some big like Dalton -like tough guy from Woodhouse. Give me a break with this stupid act. This came off. I thought this came off terribly last night. Here's Chris a I know lot better than you two. You've never done it like you've never done anything to try to advance the interests of this government except to put yourself as forward a candidate tonight. And here's the thing. We stood up for law and order. I did it as US attorney. I did it as governor. And I am not going to bow to anyone when we have a president of the United States who disrespects the Constitution. He said He said Get your MSNBC He said disrespects the Constitution. Bro, are you serious? The 2020 election was a train wreck. You telling me we mass did mail -in balloting for the first time states that had no experience in it at all. And this thing was all on the up and up after they suppressed the Hunter Biden story. Pennsylvania illegally changed the rules at the last minute and he disrespected the Constitution. You mean the Constitution they're crapping on right now by violating his Fourth Amendment rights, his right to an attorney. I mean really Twinkies just wrap it up, bro. Would you seriously, man? Really, it's time to cut another notch in that belt and help yourself to the buffet.

You need a grand total of five voters to get together to begin the process of calling for a recall for los angeles official five voters. Literally you can start a recall with the number of people you can fit in your camry and it's not just lay across the state of california. There are more than seventy elected officials who are facing the threat of recall just this year. Because that's how they do it in california california asked for recalls all the time you can mount a recall campaign against any statewide elected official for any reason at all if you can achieve the grand results of collecting signatures from just twelve percent of people. Who voted in the last election for that seat. Not twelve percent of registered voters but twelve percent of the number of people who voted in the last election for that seat specifically. That's all you need to be able to get that. Statewide elected official. Put up for recall as low bars. Go this is kind of so low. It just sits there on the floor and invites you to walk on it. And so every governor in california for the past sixty years as faced at one attempt to recall them And you will of course recalled the successful two thousand and three recall of democrat. California governor gray davis. That's how we ended up. Bizarrely with governor arnold schwarzenegger for a hot but now the republicans are trying again with this. Recall attempt that they are mounting against democratic governor gavin. Newsom the polls close tomorrow tonight Excuse me close tomorrow night at eight. Pm pacific time right now as we speak. President biden is with governor newsom in long beach california for a final. Get out the vote. Push and i'd love to tell you how it's all likely to go. We have seen tonight. That the republicans are already proclaiming. That newsome has one and it's because of fraud and the election results must therefore be protested. Election hasn't actually happened yet. There are no results but good to know how you guys are planning to approach this in good faith. Honestly i mean california is so weird about recalls and recalls themselves are such weird birds among elections. I do feel like. I have more questions than answers tonight. At least as to what to reasonably expect tomorrow what our governor newsome's odds of actually being recalled are there any of recall specific variables. We should not watch for that differ from normal election. When should we expect to see results again pulls close tomorrow eight. Pm pacific which eleven pm on the east coast joining us. Now is the one man. I trust to have all the answers to these questions. And more steve kornacki. Msnbc's political correspondent. Steve thank you so much for being here tonight. I really appreciate it happy to do it. Rachel i'd hope i disappoint. I'll do my best. I'll put it that way bars to either. Well tell me about. I mean the recall thing in california the history of it that sort of narrative history of it is so bizarre. It's so easy to start a recall effort actually getting somebody successfully recalled though is pretty difficult at the statewide level ballpark. Figure just first question. How likely do you think based on the polling. It looks that newsome is actually survived. This recall effort. And what are the kind of variables. You're looking for. I mean if gavin newsom tonight has got to be hoping the polls are right because if the polls are at all accurate in this thing gavin newsom is going to survive tomorrow. What we can show you hear. These are all the most recent polls this is basically the final week of the campaign. When you see keep here keep newsom do not recall no on the recall so keep leading in every poll taken over the last week in fact double digits in all but one of the polls this week one even over twenty points. The average of the final polls in this recall race is to keep newsom by a margin of fourteen points. You mentioned rare to have a precedent here. We went back and look though in two thousand three when gray davis was recalled democrat. Gray davis was recalled. Schwarzenegger became the governor. The polls in the final week of the two thousand and three recall were yes on the recall by an average of sixteen points. So that's a significant difference in the polling in the run-up to this one versus the run up to the one in two thousand three again that one in two thousand three ended up passing by a margin of ten points. Steve when you're looking at specific voting groups projected turnout signs of effective field. Work that sort of stuff when we approach a general election in normal circumstances sort of state by state you to learn where to where to look bellwether counties bellwether demographic groups and that sort of thing for recall election and for this one in particular. Is there something specific that you're looking at. That could be determinative something that we might have an early idea of when we start to see the for example the exit polls tomorrow in terms of who's actually turning out to vote we'll get some exit polls tomorrow and then you know. I think what's going to happen here. It'd take you through the peculiarities of this. But basically we're going to get a lot of returns in that eleven. Pm eastern time eleven pm eastern eight pm pacific to midnight eastern. Our tomorrow night may basically tell us the result. If it's real close it may take days but if this is anything like the polls are showing. I think really that first hour that i ninety minutes tomorrow night really could be determinative. I mean what you're seeing here. I put this up. This is biden over trump in california. Almost thirty point margin for biden last year in the presidential race very similar twenty sixteen with hillary clinton very similar result with gavin newsom. When he got elected in two thousand eighteen he won by twenty five points..

"All twenty twenty because the mail in votes constant claims. The president saying that the only way i could lose is if they cheat that suggested that the outcome would be rigged and these claims all false regurgitated an amplified the conservative media night after night on on various talk shows or conservative radio and his followers heard it and many of them believed it and what we saw course then as the ballots went broke against them on trump's rage in particular when as has been reported several places when arizona was called i by fox news which is relied usually very friendly to the trump pause and he saw the night slipping away and we also know of course that he had warned because he such doubt about mail in ballots that he was wanting to focus on just the votes counted that day. Which at that moment showed him ahead and number of states. Of course that changed in the days ahead and began. We saw this several months that built the january six assault and the on democracy and the instruction at apple. And let's remember the big life cooked up in the room. As written through that book by rudy giuliani others has led us to this place of new voting laws in many states whose justification whose rationale is while there were irregularities in the vote so we need to change our laws. We'll talk much more about this. Do wanna turn to the pandemic now. Our concerns are growing over new covert infections with a number of daily cases doubling in the last three weeks. This comes as just over one hundred. Eighty four million americans are at least partially vaccinated with less than half the population fully protected. Nbc's miguel almaguer has more after a private zoom meeting with pfizer monday night. The and fda say they're still not enough evidence. Americans need a booster. The nation's struggling to get ninety eight million americans. Their first shot much last their third. And now there's growing concern over protecting the twenty eight million school age kids under twelve. Who are still likely months away from qualifying for a vaccine before heading back to campus. If you're not vaccinated prefer that s parents say they're frustrated by the conflicting messages and lack of planning the cdc says any student not vaccinated needs a mask at school but most states have no uniform plan to require them of the twenty five million children old enough for vaccination. Roughly a third are fully inoculated. Any outbreaks could lead to closures. Seem to be any planning being that right now and we're just setting ourselves up for failure for another chaotic school year with nearly twenty twenty thousand new covert infections reported in children last week. The state health officer in mississippi says ten children there are currently on life support because of the delta variant clusters cases at summer. Camp are fueling new worry. When school returns there could be a false serve. The threat is incredibly real. And we're already seen surges. In parts of the country where high pockets of unvaccinated people add to that an in-person school attendance of primarily unvaccinated children and you have an opportunity for these surges and hot spots as delta force is some hospitals to reopen covert awards. Cases are on the rise again in twenty seven states after outbreaks in rural then mostly unvaccinated communities. A troubling number of infections are now being detected in cities like saint louis new york and los angeles and evolving virus within emerging threat. Just as the youngest unprotected americans get ready to return to the classroom. Nbc's miguel almaguer with that report. Meanwhile the tennessee health department will halt all adolescent vaccine outreach not just for corona virus but all diseases amid pressure from republican state lawmakers this is according to an internal report and agency emails obtained by the tennessean this comes as republican officials. Nationwide or fighting efforts to boost. Us vaccination rates throughout throughout reach the paper reports that the health department must issue any information about vaccines staff are instructed to strip the agency logo off the documents. The health department will also stop all covid nineteen vaccine events on school property despite holding at least one such event this month additionally the health department will take steps to ensure it no longer sends postcards or other. Notices reminding teenagers to get their second dose of the coronavirus vaccine. It's just it's just hard to believe that. Were here all vaccinations by the way. According to the paper tennessee's average number of new cases per day has more than doubled in the past two weeks. The state is also detecting a growing number of infections from the delta variant and willie when you have mississippi when you have a dozen kids on life support my god. This is a republican party. That is self destructing literally what is wrong with them. You have health officials at least in this case bowing to political pressure when even further meek a news channel five in nashville got. Its hands on an email. That show there was to be no outreach. At all on national immunization month which is august to the doctors in the medical officials said we typically put out a news release when to let people know to go out and get your shots not just for covert but on basic stuff polio measles mumps rubella hp things like that and they say per that commissioner do not put out that release so we're not just talking about covid for kids we're talking about not promoting vaccines period. That's where we are in this conversation. At least in the state of tennessee and the data shows that those who are in the hospital with covert now most of them are unvaccinated. So the science. It's proving itself to be right for those who are hesitant and still still ahead on morning joe. Even amid concerns about taliban resurgence new polling shows.

The author turned venture capitalist. Who just announced his run for senate continues to try to change his entire tune on former president. Donald trump josh mandel who is also running for senate compared vance to mitt romney while attacking him for not saying that the election was stolen during an interview. Vance gave to our next guest. Let's bring in national political correspondent for time molly ball who sat down with fans also pose surprise winning columnist and associate editor of the washington. Post and msnbc political analyst. Eugene robinson host of the podcast on brand with donny deutsch donny. Deutsch is with us as well. Great to have you all raise over and all of you here molly politicians. They need to be careful before they sit down with the interviews with you. Obviously because you get jd. Say all of the quiet parts out loud. He called himself a flip flop flipper on trump and then made an incredible concession to you which is well. He's added the party if i want them to vote for me. I got a follow trump. Were you surprised that he was straightforward and blunt as he was at his political transaction. A little bit. I mean we had a very frank conversation you know. Jd vance has a lot of friends in the mainstream media. Having been one of us not so long ago having had a cnn contract and been in plenty of those mainstream media green room. So i think he feels a sense of ease those on fox news a lot so he was he was quite unguarded and i always appreciate that i like when politicians are willing to open up and say what they really think so it is true that politicians are not usually a quite this frank but i wish they would be. How surprised are you that. The jd vance the guy sitting in green rooms for some time. Who was quite critical of donald. Trump has has made this conversion or a lot of his peers. A lot of his admires in the media. World surprise. I think you can tell from the reaction to the article on to other interviews that he's given recently. A lot of people are surprised. This is a book that sold many many many copies. Many people read it. Many people responded to it so it was clearly a sort of powerful description of where. Jd vance was coming from his roots. In appalachia his childhood i in a audit family growing up in rural ohio. So the fact that he would then turn around and you know where where he originally was was to say. I see people responding to trump on his issues. But i don't like trump himself so that's where this idea of flipper comes from. He saying i appreciated trump. i just was against him. But i've now you some saying that. He's now come full circle by coming back to drum because he originally agreed with trump's issues so it's a it's a rather complicated little tap dance that he's doing here but he clearly has seen that if you want a viable political career in today's republican party yukon voice support for trump and. He's basically saying that in many words. Gene here's a quote that i referenced. From ali's piece fans admit it took him time to come around but points to his book and commentaries evidence. He understood trump's appeal. Before most. I sort of got trump's issues from the beginning vance says i just thought that this guy was not serious and was not going to be able to really make progress on the issues cared about. Adding trump is a leader of this movement. And if i actually care about these people. And i say the things i care about. I need to just suck it up and support him jane. This is a guy that put his opposition to donald trump in religious terms. Five years ago and saying as a christian in so many words christians witness would be compromised if supported donald trump. Because everyone was watching this. Is you know as i said. At least he puts the cynicism out there right there in front and just on owns it in a kind of weird way it it. It should chuck us. I guess but not surprise us that this you know. He says this is the price of being a republican candidate for anything these days is that you have to bend the need donald trump. And so he's been any needed trump my question. And it's you know my question amplified by this interview and other things is is how good a politician really is. Jd vance and we'll see as he tries to win the senate seat but I question whether he's anywhere near as good politician as he is an effective writer. I thought he'll billy oji was listened and effective book. I frankly thought it was more about his own family's dysfunction than than anything else but But he'd be powerfully about that but Is he a good politician to get elected to the to the us senate. And i think during very much out on that. Yeah so donny deutsch. I reminded in watching jd. Vance and a lot of these other ivy league republicans who are phoney populists. Just horrible actors. I just every time. I see somebody stumble onto the stage like this. I'm reminded of that. Great casey stingl quote about. I think it was a sixty two. Mets jimmy breslau actually wrote a book with the same title. Can't anybody here play this game. Like this guy. You brands all the time yet. An incredible brand republicans loved him. Independence loved him. Some democrats loved him. He just it seems to me. He decided to trade that in and like a day traders move. It was a rookie move. It was an amateur move. And i find it hard to believe. He's going to get anything out of this in the end i could be totally wrong. Maybe republican voters in ohio or extraordinarily stupid and and believe this. But i don't think they. I know republican voters in ohio. And there by the way. Let me tell you. They're very smart so donnie. Why is this guy trading in this brand of his that he could convert if he was just patient until this fever of trumpism broke. He's not. I want to push back a little bit. Joe there's this weird inauthentic authentic authentic authenticity to this. That what he's doing is he's kind of like admitting he's like okay. My ends justify the means if you are a trump supporter you listened to what you go. Okay gene said this guy's spending me if you're not a trump's supporter in the republican party or you're somebody that you know. Hold your nose from. He's kind of saying you know. I really don't back them but like this is. I'm here to play the game. Because i'm here to win. So there's this weird is two ways to look at. You could say this guy is the most enough that the guy in the world when this guy's most authentic guy in the world and there's this weird nerve that i'm not quite sure which sites going hit for my point of view the jury's out because what he's doing he's really recognizing this is this absurd parlor game that i kind of need to play playing the game. I still stay where. I stood on. Trump. i'm agreeing with him just from from some of the issues point of view but i hold my nose. I get that you get that. I get that you get that i get ms this weird thing going on here now. You know molly. I guess if you look at donald trump himself. Jd vance's study. Donald trump's career himself. He sees a guy who before he painted himself as a right wing hero. He was openly pro choice aggressively pro choice. He was aggressively for gun control. He in two thousand eight during the crisis talked about nationalizing the banks to larry king that he would support nationalizing america's banks. He supported the bailout. Just go issue..

And some i report really tries to express just the spiraling out of control. That happened there at times. And there's plenty of blame to point in both parties directions. But i just find it particularly troubling to me and it was saying that i really wanted to show in this report that maya party Some people within it. Some people representing it made this critical mistake in judgment and it caused more harm than good last month. The michigan senate oversight committee released a report on the twenty twenty election saying quote found no evidence of widespread or systematic fraud in michigan's prosecution of the twenty twenty election. The committee chaired by republican state. Senator ed mcbroom released the report after conducting nearly thirty hours of public hearings listening to testimony from eighty seven witnesses and reviewing more than four hundred pages of testimony former president. Donald trump called the report quote cover up and an attempt. To hide the truth. Staff writer at the atlantic tim. Alberta profiled senator mcbroom in his latest piece titled the senator who decided to tell the truth and tim joins us now along with national political reporter for axios jonathan swan. Good morning to both tim. You wrote this of committee chairman. Mick mcbroom quote. His committee interviewed scores of witnesses. Subpoenaed and review thousands of pages of documents dissected that procedural mechanics of michigan's highly decentralized election system and scrutinize the most traffic claims about corruption at the state's ballot box in november mcbroom conclusion hit lansing like a. It was all a bunch of nonsense. Mcbroom told you quote. I can't make people believe me. All i can hope is that people use their discernment and judgment to look at the facts. I've laid out for them and then look at these theories out there and ask the question. Does any of this make sense tim. It is such a fascinating and important piece Let's take a step back and talk about. Senator mcbroom himself who he is where he is on the political spectrum and why he thought it important to take these eight months to develop this report. Really you know it's interesting. This is a guy who has a lot of credibility with republicans with conservatives not only in his caucus but in his district up in the upper peninsula of michigan. He's a dairy farmer by trade. In fact he's still operates his family's one hundred old dairy farm. And this is a guy who's a conservatives conservative. He got into politics largely animated by the issue of abortion and wanting to protect farmers. And this is somebody who you voted for. Donald trump's who talk to me at length about how happy he was the policy outcomes of the trump administration. How worried he has been about the early days of the administration. So this is not something rhino. This is not somebody who's sort of soft and who's been attempting to undermine trump from within his own artists This is a guy at the same time though. Willingness who's really known as sort of a choirboy Literally he directs his church choir up in the upper peninsula and when you talk to republican colleagues of his. There was always a sense that that that anybody was going to really shoot straight on this issue and was going to pull punches and get to the bottom of this and then tell the truth no matter how inconvenient it may be than ed mcbroom was going to be that guy and for that reason. Frankly there was some nervousness when he took this investigation because a lot of republicans knew that he might not Broadcast exactly what they were hoping. I guess the question now is choirboy dairy farmer going to be censored by the party. Is he going to be driven from. The ranks is he. Going to be primary later. They're already protests against him for actually telling the plain and obvious truth that same truth. That william bar sad when he was asked to investigate these claims the same truth. That rudy giuliani was forced to say when he finally getting federal court and said no. You're honored this is not a fraud case the truth time and again that republicans win under oath and even trump's on attorneys had to tell judges. Now there's no widespread voter fraud. Is he going. Is he going to now get thrashed politically. for telling the truth. he'll he'll be thrashed politically. He's already beings rash politically starting his own district. This is a guy who represents a very conservative part of the state of michigan. And he's dealing with constituents and family friends people. He's known his entire life who are attacking him telling him that. He's been bought off by china that that he is in league with the deep state and frankly a century from his own party is sort of pretty low on his list of concerns. Right now. I mean well. We talked he. He was not in the direction of his rifle cabinet in his house. Talking to me about the calls in the middle of the night threatening his family. And so i don't know that this is a guy who's nearly as concerned about some of the political ramifications or in the abstract as he is about what might happen when the people who are so convinced that this election was stolen. And who believe that. There is an illegitimate democrat in office right now. They are approaching the brink of civil war. She and i talked about in the piece. He talked about people. He's encountering in his district who are talking about. It's time to rise up. It's it's it's time perhaps for a for a legitimate civil conflict. Here those are the things that that senator mcbroom talk to me about. That are really urgent for him. I don't know that he's terribly concerned about being stripped of some committee assignment or being punished by politicians in lansing because ultimately term limited have only be there for a couple more years anyway. He's much more worried about where this is taking all of us in the country in his community the people he knows who he feels like are perhaps lost permanently to these conspiracy. Yeah and they are conspiracy. Theories i mean i i get people sending me conspiracy theories from you. Know chinese colts and websites. That they've set up is really something. Jonathan swan though that whenever any of these lies are exposed to the light of day. They wither immediately. Giuliani held press conferences outside of federal court houses saying oh there's widespread fraud then they would go inside. Courthouses and giuliani would be asked by a judge. I mean specifically requesting the us district judge. Matthew brand giuliani admitted. This is not a fraud case. Trump lawyers saying the same thing this is an in arizona. Are you saying that. There's any fraud in connection to these disputed ballots to my knowledge at present. No said the lawyer. The lawsuit was was convinced. Time and again trump pr flax and giuliani would allege fraud. Outside course at courthouses they would go inside of courthouses and say no fraud your honor because they knew they couldn't lie in front of a federal judge and here you have somebody that's investigated this for months and months and again in the light of day these conspiracy claims that that russians and chinese.

"Trust standards over here saying at msnbc. This is what we do and this yesterday house. Democrats made their picks for these select committee to investigate the january six attack on the united states capitol house speaker nancy pelosi chose republican congresswoman. Liz cheney to join the panel. Here's congresswoman cheney's response amid pushback from her own party concentrating concerned about getting reprimanded by your petition committee assignment. I think it's clear all the people on this committee that our constitution our duty our dedication to the will and the peaceful transfer of our come above any any concern about partisanship or politics. Free sources tell nbc news before the announcement house minority leader. Kevin mccarthy threatened to strip republican members of their existing committee assignments if they accepted an appointment from speaker pelosi. Here's mccarthy's response yesterday. I'm not making any threats about committee assigns with but as you know how congress works. I was shocked that she would accept something from speaker pelosi. It would seem to me since. I didn't hear from her. Maybe she's closer to her than us. I don't know. Meanwhile republican congressman adam kin zinger of illinois who along with liz. Cheney was the only two republicans to vote for the select committee. Responded to mccarthy's reported threat with this quote. Who gives a bleep from adam. Kin zinger there joe. So it appears. Kevin mccarthy is more concerned with not showing allegiance or working together at all with democrats and nancy pelosi into getting to the bottom of what happened here. Yeah i know and and really again at kissing her I think his views will probably shared by a lot of conservatives who actually are concerned about january the sixth a lot of conservatives who remember kevin mccarthy getting on the floor and saying that donald trump bore responsibility in part for what happened on january six conservatives remember true conservatives of course not trump cult members but true conservatives remember kevin mccarthy getting on the phone and screaming at donald trump begging for help begging for assistance on january the sixth when congress was being overrun when republican members. Who now deny anything ever happened. That was untoward. Were actually helping. Police officers. barricade the house chamber against the mob conservatives remember mccarthy bragging to other members in his own delegation that he had shouted at trump and asked swore at him and asked who the blank. Do you think you're talking to donald. Trump tried line to him saying it was antiga that was responsible for those attacks. Conservatives true conservatives remember it was actually. Kevin mccarthy told president that it was trump supporters. Who were doing this so so yeah i it's a good point. Also liz chinese lifetime conservative rating. Well up in the nineties. She's more of a conservative than kevin. Mccarthy ever was kevin mccarthy will ever be so this this goes down to the fact that you have one woman no one woman that that was in leadership who is actually standing up and doing the sort of thing that margaret thatcher would have done in nineteen seventy five. That ronald reagan would have done in. Nineteen seventy six That true conservatives have done throughout history standing up to fat bloated elements of their corrupt dying party. And i suspect. We'll see how it plays out with liz. Cheney we'll see if that plays out the same way it played out with thatcher when she took control of the conservative party and and britain and seventy five or reagan when he challenged the republican establishment in nineteen seventy six. I hope it does suffice. I suspect it might. But jonathan lear only time will tell we find ourselves so right now in what is probably the final stages of trumpism which would may last a few more years. God save us all but no doubt about it. Kevin mccarthy is not only going against liz cheney not only going against adam kin zinger not only going against police officers who were beaten and bludgeoned with american flags on january the six but he's also going against himself he's also undercutting his own words. He's also making a fool of himself acting as if we don't have video of him blaming. Donald trump for the insurrection on january the sixth. And let's remember joe that we're now in a matter of days approaching the six month anniversary of the capital ride on january six and still congressional investigation into what.

"The show we did nine stern on. Msnbc we have thrown out the show as we sometimes have to do because we need to start tonight with some news that has just broken on the front page of the new york times. This is a big deal. I will tell you about to speak with one of the reporters who's bylined on the story. We're also about to speak with one of the subjects of this story but it all the time i have been in this business. I have never covered anything quite like this before. I have never read about anything like this before happening. In american politics and government as far as we know nothing like this has ever happened before but the new york times says tonight that it has and the consequences remains to be seen all right. Let me spell this out. You may have read over the last couple of weeks. Newly reported revelations about the justice department under donald trump secretly obtaining the communications of a number of reporters journalists from cnn from the washington post from the new york times reporters communications seized by the trump justice department secretly and those communications that the trump justice department went after they were all from twenty seventeen. The trump administration was frantically trying to find out who the who the sources were for those reporters when they were writing stories about the days of the trump administration and the two thousand sixteen campaign. Now the reason this has come out now the reason all of these stories about i washington post then. Cnn now we know the new york times. The reason all those come out has been. I think in part because of the change in administration the reporters who had their communications searched by the trump justice department which was hunting for their sources in many cases. Those reporters didn't know their communications had been seized until now. The trump justice department in some cases had secured gag orders so the reporters couldn't be told that they were being targeted. Their news organizations couldn't be told it couldn't be discussed. The reason these stories are now finally being written the reason. Those reporters finally know that their records were searched by the justice department under trump is because those gag orders on their media outlets have expired or they have been lifted now that the biden administration is in place those revelations about the trump justice department going after reporters sources That prompted the the biden justice department last just last week to announce that they will no longer sees reporters communications in leak investigations. President biden himself has weighed in on that saying going after reporters in that way is simply simply wrong and he did not want his justice department to do that. The context here in which tonight story breaks but just within the last hour the new york times has broken a whole new level of the story and again this is not just sort of a shocking revelation about the trump justice department. This is something as far as we can tell that has never been done before and us government and has profound implications for the separation of powers between the branches of government that we've got. This is the headline tonight and the new york times hunting leaks. Trump officials focused on democrats in congress meaning members of congress who are democrats quote as the justice department investigated who was behind leaks of classified information early. In the trump administration. It took a highly unusual step. Prosecutors subpoenaed apple the company apple for data from the accounts of at least two democratic members of congress on the house intelligence committee and staffers and family members. One of those family members was a child a minor according to committee officials in other people briefed on the inquiry all told the records of at least a dozen people tied to the intelligence committee were seized in two thousand seventeen in early two thousand eighteen including the records of congressman adam schiff of california the top democrat on the house intelligence committee who is now the chairman of that committee prosecutors under the beleaguered trump attorney general. Jeff sessions were hunting for the sources behind news media reports about contacts between trump associates and russia. Ultimately the data and other evidence didn't tie the intelligence committee to any leaks. Investigators then debated whether they'd hit a dead end some even discussed closing the inquiry but following the departure of jeff sessions as attorney general and the installation of william bar as trump's new attorney general. Mr bar revived languishing. leak investigations. Once he became attorney general according to three people with knowledge of his work bar moved a trusted prosecutor from new jersey who had little relevant experience to the main justice department in washington to work on the congressman shift related case and about a half dozen others these zeal in the trump administration's efforts to hunt led to the extraordinary step of subpoena and communiqu communications meta data from members of congress that is nearly unheard of move outside of corruption investigations or justice department. Leak investigations are fairly routine. Current and former congressional officials familiar with this inquiry. Said they could not recall. Any instance in which the records of lawmakers had been seized as part of one moreover just as it did in investigating news organizations. The justice department under president trump secured a gag order on apple which expired this year so lawmakers did not know that were being investigated until apple was able to inform them of that fact last month after the records provided no proof of leaks prosecutors in the us attorney's office in dc discussed ending that piece of their investigation but william bars decision to bring in an outside prosecutor helped keep the case alive. There do not appear to have been similar. Grand jury subpoenas for records of members of staff of the senate intelligence committee just the house spokesman for republicans in the house. Intelligence committee did not respond to a question about whether republicans were issued subpoenas. The justice department has declined to tell democrats on the committee whether any republicans were.

"The rachel maddow show. We did nine stern on. Msnbc in the white house there is an important but sort of low profile job that is called staff secretary if you are stuff secretary in the white house what that means is that you're the person in charge of managing the paper flow around the president all the documents and materials that are handed to the president everything. The president is asked to review everything that the president does review. Anything that ends up on the president's desk everything that goes to the president or from the president white house staff secretary is the person in charge of keeping all of that in order. It's very important job. Obviously a very sensitive job because you see everything that goes to and from the president for all the reasons you might imagine. it's incredibly not only detail oriented job sort of twenty four seven job but it's a job for which you need to be an incredibly trustworthy person in february twenty thousand eighteen so almost exactly a year into the trump presidency the staff secretary. The trump white house had to resign for terrible reason. He had to resign because both of his ex wives came forward with lurid and terrible domestic violence allegations against him. That young man's name was rob porter and a scandal. Like that somebody in that job that a job. That's sensitive having long standing known serious domestic violence allegations against him by multiple previous wives but nevertheless getting that job in holding onto it a year. I mean a scandal like that would be a marquee thing. Any other presidency. It would be a defining scandal that would be remembered forever about any other modern presidents. that's at the trump administration that was like one blade of grass on a football field. Like keep track. Oh yeah remember that scandal again. It would be a massive over shadowing scandal for any other president going back to nixon. But for this president that was like literally one in a gazillion but that scandal ridden disgrace had to resign staff secretary. His was rob porter and that same rob porter today. had a cameo role in the long awaited testimony of the star witness against president trump for the serious allegations potentially criminal obstruction of justice. That dog him even now as a former president this from the transcript that we just got today question so going back to the meeting with rob porter that house stuff secretary. Answer okay question. You told porter that you would not write the letter. The president had requested correct. Answer right question. Did rob porter tell you about his conversation with the president earlier that day directive page one fifteen of the report answer okay question puertas now describing his conversation with the president earlier that day the report says quote the president said he wanted don mcgann to write a letter to the file for our records. Wanted something beyond a press statement to demonstrate that the reporting was inaccurate. The mr porter convey to you that. The president wanted you to write a letter for records. Answer i don't know if he used the word for a records but that is consistent with what he was telling me. The president wanted question so it was consistent with your understanding that the president wanted a formal written statement. Answer yes yeah question. According to reporter statements president trump also referred to you during that conversation as quote. A lying bastard. Mr porter convey that to you when you spoke to him. Answer not that i recall. No i think i learned. I learned about that one wants. the miller. report was released question. And what was your reaction when you learned to. That answer disappointing question. Why answer because it's not true question. Why isn't it true. answer. Because i'm not lying bastard question. What was your understanding of why the president said that answer. You'd have to ask him. I was disappointed to read in the report that the president called me lying. Bastard because pastor. Why do you think he called you that while you'd have to ask him in. Nobody's going to ask him. It's becoming more and more clear that it really seems like nobody's going to ask him not unless he's going to potentially face criminal charges for obstruction of justice in which case prosecutors might talk to him then get his answer to that in many other questions but so far he's never been questioned and so that isn't at least. It hasn't been in the cards. There's also this again from the same transcript that we just got today about the kind of lawyer. President trump wish wishes he had had when he was in the white house question. You testified that you told the president that knocking robert muller out could be a fact used to claim obstruction of justice. Correct answer right. That's the report we talked about that. Yeah right question. Was your understanding that president trump was concerned. That him asking you to have the special counsel removed could be harmful to him and the special counsel's investigation answer. Certainly yeah. Why well for the same appearance reasons among others. If it's known that you're under investigation by a special counsel and you seek to remove that special counsel someone probably more than one person is going to suggest that you did that to end the investigation. So that's a pretty obvious point question during that meeting on february sixth. The president raised the issue of why you took notes during meetings. Yes yes he did he asked about he asked about. Why do i take notes. And what was your reaction to that answer. I said look. I take notes because you know i'm a real lawyer. Real lawyers take notes..

"So let's bring in the author of that report justice department reporter for the new york times. Katie benner she's also an msnbc contributor katie. What more can you tell us. I mean are there any laws broken here. I'm not really sure that we saw laws broken. We definitely saw policies violated the justice department context policy with husbands very clear that when it comes to matters enforcement no one from the white house really except for white house counsel is supposed to be talking to the attorney general the justice department and that is in order to keep it from seeming like or keep it from being in reality an attempt by the white house to us investigations into us enforcement as political cudgels against enemies or as political tactics for example to try to legitimize a conspiracy theory that president for president trump won the election. You saw that policy very clearly violated here and then you also sign attempt by the white house to legitimize through the justice department. Some pretty crazy conspiracy theories which is interesting because there was a sense at the end of the administration within the white house as people scrambled. Find a way to say that one. That would be key for the justice department to somehow uses authority. Psa bless these theories and to bless these tactics and say that there was a chance when the justice already determined. There was none that there was a chance that trump one katie mark meadows denied ever sending these What's your response to his denial. You know. I didn't hear you denied them. All i have been told vaguely with. He might not have remembered them but the problem is is that they are in possession of investigators for the house and the senate. So i'm not really sure how that denial squares with With congress possession of his emails with reality. Actually charlie and of course there. They're disconnect charlie with reality obviously inside the white a huge disconnect and a my guide if american democracy was not hanging by a thread. Pretty damn funny that an idiot chief of staff was actually pushing italy gate. A conspiracy theory. That satellite sending man from italy came over and changed enough ballots to elect a president the way by the way anybody rate read a layup flights sunday new york times cover story about the gop tax knows video allen west mocked people who believed in italy gate. And yet here we are. Actually i got to straighten up here. 'cause he's gonna get mad at me. Charlie i saw george laughing at the beginning of this question because it really was so damn dangerous that these people were actually controlling the level of powers in the last several months of the trump administration. Yeah i mean think about what. We're talking about here joe. We are talking about the chief of staff to the president of the united states in the final days of the presidency. Trying to find a way to overturn a presidential election my embracing some of the most bizarre conspiracy theories you can imagine you know. Words fail run out of needed to get back to the source. Delusional deranged crazy. This is the republicans do loop of crazy and they are caught in that every time you think you come up with an idea that is just too lunatic. What happens is you find out that the president of the united states himself is embracing it and then he spreads it out and other people feel the need to act on it and so here. We are on this monday morning. We're talking about the possibility of of italy gate. The president apparently spent time musing about the possibility of being reinstatement. And we actually have explainers saying by the way no you cannot be reinstated as president in august. I mean really. We are talking about this. We're talking about this because these crazy notions had circulating in the white house in the republican party. And you know. As as i've said job just because an idea is fake. And ludicrous does not mean that it is not dangerous and if millions of people believe this it can create more anger more outrage and it can fuel the kinds of things we saw on january six so it's not just one big lie. It's the big line metastasized into new forms and they can be very very dangerous to american democracy. It's the russian a fire hose of falsehood. Which is a very deliberate attempt to spread so many lies and the lies. Don't have to be consistent with each other that you confuse you. Overwhelm and people like me. Laugh at such a ludicrous. Lies thinking nobody would be stupid enough to believe them and well. Actually tens of millions of people do believe them katie. I wanted to just just so so we can educate people that maybe just started watching news over the past five years younger americans. Can you talk about that wall. There was such a solid wall between white house. And the justice department's in the past and if the wall was was broken through it became huge news even on much smaller items in this. I always go back to ninety three. during travelgate. when one or two clinton officials went over and talked to a justice department official about wording of press release my god republicans you would have thought that it was watergate to. It's just something that usually doesn't happen. But with the trump administration all all restraint was done away with and there was a dangerous mixing politics and law time and time again. Yes so to your point. Historically since watergate there has been a really strong wall put in place between the justice department which is the nation's top law enforcement agency and the white house but we saw with nixon's. He was using the justice department to win reelection. He was using the powers of the attorney. General attorney general is helping him and that was deemed very very dangerous for horiuchi of reasons. Not least of which. Because it would erode. The american people's faith that law enforcement the law that the idea that we are all equal under the law was no longer something that we could believe in an america so safeguards were put in place primarily this idea that the white house and the justice department would not work together on something as serious as enforcement as prosecution did not want it to seem like the justice department was being used to grafter political enemies fast forward to the trump era and we saw a president who very clearly did not believe in having that wall. He believed that tourney. Jeff sessions should have stepped in and ended the russian investigation into his campaign and investigations to russia stop. He believed that bill barr have helped more in terms of helping to win reelection in terms of talking about things like voter fraud in terms of spreading fears. That mail in ballots would in fraud. He really felt that the justice department should be his personal law firm an entity that went after his enemies. As we've also seen in leak investigations that houston after people like andrew mccabe and james comey the former head of the fbi also followers enemies so trump did not only did away with that norm he instated a new norm and keep in mind. We had for years of trump so it's not just that he trampled over norms. He kind of stated this new idea that it was okay to politicize law enforcement and national security and we're still living with the reverberations of that today the fact that there are people who do not believe national security assessments over domestic extremism and its root causes is part of that participation in the fact that we have people who believe in conspiracy theories that were debunked by trump's own justice department by attorney former attorney. General bill barr is a result of that politicisation the fact that you can have a rally trump and he talks about the vaccine and says takes credit for it and people will not applaud because they're so convinced not to believe in vaccines. That's also part of that politicisation. So we'll have to deal with that for years to come very well put justice department reporter for the new york times katie benner.

"Today's demonstration is the latest of many staged by the militant group act up which has gained increasing influence on aids policies. The weekly meetings of the new york chapter attract hundreds and the loosely knit organization counts ten thousand members. Nationwide mostly young mostly demonstration. Eric keep it there. Atmosphere at the meetings at the group's headquarters is characterized by enthusiasm and belligerence toward established institutions. Playwright larry kramer's started to accelerate the aids drug approval process. Go what right does the fda and the nih have to tell a dying person. What he or she can do with her or his body. Act up members. Do more than demonstrate mark harrington has made himself an expert on aids and he serves on an nih advisory committee even though he helped organize. Today's demonstration well. I call that the inside. Outside strategy act does really well act up. Strategy has been enormously successful in getting the food and drug administration to loosen the regulation of new drugs for aids. now the activists are trying to force scientists to work faster to develop and test new treatments in the past. Scientists have strongly resisted such pressure. Act up things. Scientists can be made to listen robert basell. Nbc news because it was may nineteen ninety bethesda maryland at the campus of the national institutes of health. And it was. That was really something. Hundreds of people got arrested You saw people getting clubbed there by police and some of that footage As part of that protests people with aids wrap themselves up in red tape as they marched on the nature and h building. They said we're dying from red tape. They said the nih is killing us. We die they do nothing so they set off those colored smoke bombs incredibly dramatic and actually quite intimidating saying they wanted was more people into more clinical trials for more drugs and they made that huge racket trying to force it to happen in that news footage though there was that brief clip of individual member of the activist group. Act up. Who voiceover over said. The reporter said both helped organize that protested. Nih was also serving on a formal advisory committee at nih a formal advisory committee at nih on on trying to test and approve new drugs rates. That act that happened. Activists were brought onto those advisory groups because the top aids researcher at. Nih made that happen. He met with activists he cracked. Open the nih to force that big scientific government agency to put actual people with aids on these advisory boards including the activists who were protesting at their offices in big loud sometimes. Very intimidating protests. Put those people on the advisory boards that are steering the government response now. The top aids researcher and the government at the time made that happen which earned him respect from the activists who he was helping into the corridors of power didn't stop him from getting a hard time from them though in an ongoing way three days after that protest at nih at his office. The lead aids reached aids researcher at nih had been scheduled to give a talk in new york city about treatment options for people with hiv. Here's that scene is described in the book against the odds by peter arno and karen fighting they say quote. The audience was packed with act up members the researcher quipped i enjoyed so much the visit of some of you a few days ago then. He fielded questions from the crowd. The mood was far from friendly. And some of the threats were thinly-veiled the drugs you've tested haven't worked shouted one man. Why don't you try the ones. We've been begging you for for years and pleading for a boulder response to the epidemic. Another man. warned. If you can't find the profile encouraged that i've seen all around me in my own community that i'm scared of what we may have to be driven to do to make you wake up. I hope it doesn't come to that. The most moving moment of the evening came when one man stepped up to the microphone and asked if you had heard promises year in and year out. If you're still carrying the best friends you've ever had out of churches and synagogues in caskets. If you are scared to death of getting sick yourself what would you do dr fauci. What would you do vouchers. Response was subdued. He said quote. I would be very upset. It was forty years ago tomorrow that the first ever report was published identifying a weird rare kind of pneumonia nooses testimony a- among five previously healthy young gay men forty years ago exactly since that first cautious curious report of something odd noticed in those five young men. That was one thousand nine hundred eighty one. Dr anthony fauci was an infectious disease doctor and researcher. At the time. I can remember in early in the summer of one thousand nine hundred ninety one when i i read in the report from the cdc of these cases of strange infections and tumors in patients in male homosexuals in new york city area and in california l. a. and san francisco. I had thought initially that this might be a transmissible agent but maybe with some toxic self than some drug. Or what have you that. They had ingested but then when it became clear that such a large number of individuals on both coasts. Were getting it. We became rather suspicious that we were dealing with an infectious agent and then as soon as the iv drug users became infected and then haemophiliacs with the common denominator of the possibility of bloodborne transmission in addition to sexual transmission. Then it became clear that we were dealing with a very special unprecedented situation. A very special unprecedented situation. Dr anthony. Fauci was a rocket in his field at the time as a young researcher he became one of the most prolific most widely published most influential respected infectious disease scientists on earth and from the very very beginning of the aids epidemic forty years ago now. He not only worked on it. As a researcher he personally treated patients from the very beginning and he did put activists on the advisory boards for clinical trials. Listen to them. He created what was called a parallel track for clinical trials to get more people faster access to promising but still experimental therapies. He didn't just get yelled at by activists and then meet with them himself. He also brought activists to h to meet with his colleagues who might have been less inclined to hang out with the activists who are always screaming at them. He brought activists to meet with his colleagues at h. To expose those other government scientists and doctors to the urgency and anger of these desperate young people who were dying from this incurable thing.

Two million people dead from around the world seven hundred and thirty thousand americans dead from it but right now yes there are seven hundred and thirty thousand americans who have been killed by aids but there are one point two million americans who are living with hiv right now because treatment for hiv infection did get so much better got the first drug in nineteen ninety six.

I good drugs in nineteen ninety-six and now if you can get access to state of the art treatment bottom line is is basically not gonna kill you anymore and that's been the last forty years that's been the life's work of dr anthony fauci as the government's top infectious disease doctor.

Donald trump who apparently plans to make vilifying and attacking dr anthony fauci the centerpiece of his comeback political tour which he wants to start tomorrow at a speech.

Primetime now where they think he can somehow be blamed for causing covid or something since he's the country's lead scientist on it or maybe he's a secret chinese communist.

"Just a few hours. Until joe biden takes the oath of office and becomes the forty six president of the united states. five of his most high profile cabinet nominees five of them got their senate confirmation hearings today. Secretary of state nominee antony blinken appeared before the foreign relations committee armed services committee question. Defense secretary nominee. Lloyd austin janet yellen who's biden's nominee for treasury secretary. She had her hearing before the finance committee. Also hearing for biden's pick to head homeland security alejandro may orcas and the director of national intelligence nominee of real hanes. Got her hearing as well five. Really big ones right. I mean state defense treasury homeland security intelligence five of them all at once today. We never have this many nominees for huge cabinet positions all having their confirmation hearings all on the same day. That's because in years past when a new administration was on its way in the senate would hold hearings for new cabinet secretaries over a period of days many days in advance of the inauguration so the new president could have at least some of his cabinet in place when he actually took office. Not this time. Though this time we got all these hearings all at once. Literally the day before the inauguration because the republican controlled senate just chose not to get their act together to move on. Move on biden's nominations before now they had some very important recesses. Take among other things i swear. The senate didn't even come back from their latest vacation until today. Yeah no rush when you haven't held confirmation hearings for anyone before today feel free to take a few more days off so biden is having to take off with an empty cabinet with literally. No cabinet secretaries confirmed including in critical national security positions which is totally unprecedented. on president. obama took office in two thousand nine seven of his cabinet. Secretaries were confirmed. By the end of inauguration day. many of president trump's cabinet picks face more opposition in the senate but even he took office with his defense secretary in his homeland security secretary in place. This time though. Barring some kind of senate miracle joe biden will have no one in. His entire cabinet confirmed on his first day including in the major national security positions and bad news. Good news on that front. The bad news is the obvious. The bad news is that that means president biden is going to start with a whole bunch of acting temporary. Fill in cabinet secretaries instead of full blown senate confirmed cabinet secretaries of his choosing which will just make it that much harder for the new president to hit the ground running and that's true in terms of policy matters that's also true in terms of national security. It's worrying for all the obvious reasons. That's the bad news but the good news is that the trump administration has been so profoundly dysfunctional for four whole years that we're actually starting used to that now. We're actually sort of used to having only acting stand in non-confirmed secretaries at all the most important jobs in the cabin and that's not something that the republican controlled senate screwed up for trump despite him doing it the right way. That's just the way he ran the government. I mean thanks to republican senator josh hawley slowing down the process and the homeland security committee. Joe biden is going to have to settle for an acting homeland security secretary for at least a few days but the united states has already had nothing but the homeland security secretaries for like two years under donald trump the longest they can see in the presidential cabinet ever because donald trump could just never get it together to have real nominees who got really confirmed by the senate and who held their job with all the attendant powers so maybe four years and terrible governance. Maybe we are better at running government poorly in that way there was would have been before this four year experiment and terrible governance. That is now coming to a clicks.
