Monica Crowley: Fight 'Fire With Fire' Against the Left

"It just, it really bothers me that Republicans seem to think they're playing a lovely game of croquet in Connecticut. When in fact, this is a street fight for the country right now, the Democrats are never going to play fair. I say we get out into the gutter and slug it out with them. Fire with fire. And it's long past time that we did this Todd. You know, every time I come on your show, we do a little history lesson about the history of the left in this country. And the history of the international Marxist revolution, which has been going on since what? 1917. And what we are experiencing in this country is exactly that. But it didn't just originate over the last two years. This has been going on for decades. So for decades, we have been under this communist assault to fundamentally transform the nation and destroy us from within, as well as from without. We've got external enemies too. But the fact that we've got these internal enemies, you know, we've met the enemy and it's us. And the fact that the Republicans are still playing softball and the fact that they're still doing playing by gentlemen's rules, when we are fighting for the very future of this country, it's insane. And I've got no tolerance for, first of all, Republicans like McConnell and Romney and some of these others Murkowski that work with the other side to destroy the country. But even with others to sort of understand the nature of the internal threat, the fact that they are not stepping up quite yet to fight fire with fire is outrageous. And we are taking notes that we are taking receipts. Todd, we are keeping a list of names of who gets it, who is fighting tooth and nail for the future of this country, because we're at a real tipping point here. And if you don't get it, get out of the way. Yeah, and

Viral Video Labels Democrat, RINO Female Senators As 'Bipartisan'

"I'm going down some rabbit holes, Twitter seems a little more conservative friendly these days now that Elon Musk has the helm. There's a video that kind of went viral that shows a bunch of Democrat female senators. You got mazie hirono and the whole bunch of them, Elizabeth Warren, Pocahontas is in there. There's Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins is described as a group of bipartisan U.S. female senators. It's not bipartisan. It's a couple of rhinos in a room full of Democrats and Kamala. Vice president cackles is in there too. And it's just a creepy video and they're all waving at the camera. They're all happy and they're all drinking wine or whatever they're doing. And the caption from somebody is this is me waking up in hell. This is me in hell. Looking at all these smiling maniacal faces. Oh, look, there's Pocahontas. Oh, Susan Collins. Man, oh man.

"Here's lieutenant colonel Daniel Davis, he's a defense priorities senior fellow. This is with Fox News channel's trace Gallagher over the weekend. It seems kind of odd to me that we're going to shoot something down. We don't know who it is. Who is it was? What it was, whether it was something that could potentially have been harmful if it gets shut down. I mean, I think we would have wanted to know a little bit more about it before we took, you know, that kind of decisive action, but look, I think that, you know, because of all the uproar that happened this week over the delay of shooting down the last given that it came over Alaska and senator Murkowski, you know, really being upset and Senate hearings this week. I think that they decided they're just going to be, you know, air on the side of shooting it down and then figured it out later. Well, one thing's for certain and I don't think anybody doubts that we're being tested. And I guarantee you, if Trump were the commander in chief, there would be a much different response from the one we're getting from the Biden administration.

An Apology to Voters for the Betrayal of GOP Senators

"I want to give a word of explanation and maybe a sort of apology to people who've called this show in 2022 and say, why do I bother to vote for the Republican Party? A huge contingent of Republican senators stabbed the American people in the back with voting to pass this goofy $1.7 trillion omnibus package. Now, most of the Republicans who voted for this boondoggle, this Biden Christmas wish list are, you know, the usual suspects, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, but Tom cotton, Tom cotton really? 18 Republican senators.

I don't even care. You may not even live in Alabama. It doesn't matter. You call them. And we need to be demanding answers here. We need to be demanding to know why they betrayed the voters. And we also have to hope and pray that at the end of the day, somebody is going to come to their senses and the Democrats are not going to get the ten Republican votes they need in the Senate to pass this.

Respect for Marriage Act Will Impact Your Priest, Preachers & You

"Lot going on up on Capitol Hill. That's going to impact your preacher. Now, I suspect a good many of you actually are regular church attenders you go to mass, maybe you go to synagogue, you go to church, whenever the doors are open, if you're a baptist, well you got Sunday morning, then you got Sunday school, and then you got Sunday discipleship training and then Sunday Night services, and then you've got Wednesday, prayer meeting service. Baptist go to church a lot. What can I tell you? But the reality is you folks who go to church, what's happening up on Capitol Hill today is going to impact you and you need to be very, very, very, very concerned. About what the Republicans are going to be up to. And you say, well, Tom, wait a second. I thought the Democrats were in charge of the. So yes, they are in charge. But 12 Republican senators, including Willard Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski, have sided with the Democrats to advance the respect for marriage act. Now, here's what we're looking for and we're waiting for. We are waiting for the vote, but we're also waiting for an amendment a vote on an amendment senator Mike Lee and Marco Rubio among others have urged their colleagues to insert language that would protect your preachers because as it now stands. If this law goes into effect, if this law happens, if Joe Biden signs his John Hancock on the piece of paper, then your pastor and your church would be subjected to lawsuit, so if let's just say a gay activist comes and they say, hey, we want to be married in your church and you say, well, we can't do that because you know we're Presbyterian or whatever. And they could, at that point, under this law, sue you.

What Happened to the Unified GOP in the Midterms?

What Happened to the Unified GOP in the Midterms?

"When we think back to when we were in power, when Trump was president, sure, there were some never trumpers, but for the most part, we all unified behind Trump. And when I think back to the State of the Union speeches, Trump gave, I can't think of a time when the Republican narrative was more clear. And the Democrats, while clearly opposed, you remember Nancy Pelosi physically ripping up Trump's speech, our whole side was quite unified. But ever since the midterm results of 2022, this unity has slowly disappeared. Some of it started in 2020 and maybe even more in 2021, but after November 8th, 2022, very quickly, conversations began about what went wrong and why, and people immediately started pointing fingers. There was a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on as they say. I know many of you have likely seen the infighting taking place. And it's very disturbing. Some say the midterms were great and maybe it wasn't a red wave, but hey, we control Congress. This group has a very positive outlook on how things went. And the party's recent expansion into the black and Hispanic vote were unheard of years ago. In fact, despite ballot shenanigans by the Democrat party, the GOP won the popular vote in the midterms by 6 points. Others say the midterms were far from a red wave. We were expecting a bloodbath, blowout election, where we'd control the House and the Senate, many thought this would happen because Biden seemed so obviously bad. With his policies so obviously harming Americans with record high inflation and people feeling it at the gas pump. But alas, we missed the mark. We overestimated our wins. We counted our chickens before they hatched maybe. Others say we've could have gotten far more seats, but we didn't because of various reasons, whether it was candidate quality or it was lack of fundraising or mismanagement of funds. As McConnell backed Murkowski instead of shabaka and left Blake masters out to dry. There are many reasons why people feel this election did not turn out the way we had hoped. But nevertheless, the point is, they are disappointed, and we are not unified.

Trump was not convicted, but her vote was a sore point raised by Trump who had vowed to campaign against her, Murkowski was censored by the state Republican Party leaders last year for offenses that included hurt impeachment vote. During the campaign, she emphasized a willingness to work across party lines and focused on her record and seniority. I'm Lisa dwyer

Hundreds of Chinese made drones are violating local airspace restricted airspace in the area, flying over The White House capital and Pentagon. And while they're privately owned drones, national security officials are concerned that like other Chinese tech, including TikTok, these commercially available drones could be hacked and used for espionage and surveillance. Politico senior national correspondent Brian bender tells WTO tonight officials are struggling with solutions. This is D.C. airspace, one of the most protected areas in the country, if not the world. And I think federal officials are grappling with what new authorities might they need in order to counter these drones to go after them. I mean, you have to keep in mind these are Americans out on a Sunday with their new drone, potentially just having a good time and not with any ill intent at all. Some federal anti drone laws are set to expire next month. The Biden administration is urging Congress to quickly restore them.

"What the hell's going on up there We are still waiting to determine the final outcome of the election as you know the actual election was on November 8th I think we have the least amount of votes to count in the 50 states and we will take the longest to count them And a large part of that is because they implemented this ranked choice system that George Soros funded organizations are trying to push throughout the United States There are only two states that have it statewide at this point That's main and Alaska and we know what those two U.S. senators have in common And we're dealing with it for the first time up here in Alaska One of the things that we saw as an effect is one of the lowest voter turnouts that we've seen in decades And unfortunately I think that that has had a real big impact on the results So for ten days or so I was leading substantially over Murkowski and then just here recently it is flipped She has a .7% lead over me the election is not done yet They still have to run the ranked choice algorithm where the fourth and the third place candidates will drop off and depending on who they ranked as their second place in third place preferences That's ultimately going to determine who wins this race So we're still in this fight This could go to a potential recount This could go to people filing lawsuits So I'm asking your listeners for help Please help us at Kelly for AK dot com I don't know what twists and turns will come next but I will need help So Kelly for AK dot com we've also had to pay for staff costs this whole time for doing the ballot observations for weeks now and that's been pretty pricey as well So if you can help I'd appreciate it Kelly for a K dot com

"Have a list. This is a freshly updated list of Republican senators who are supporting this, and all of these folks, by the way, were just like Barack Obama and one of them in particular was staunchly opposed to same sex marriage. That would be Mitt Romney of Utah, who now supports the bill, also Tom tillis of North Carolina, rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, a Lisa Murkowski is hinting that she will support this along with senators, let's see here. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa, telling Business Insider that she was keeping an open mind about the bill. So you could have more Republican senators joining the Democrats pastor. Yes, that's a concern. And I always, as a pastor, I always ask myself, what's the faith base of the individual making that vote, what's going on at their home church? Because it usually influences them. And then the second thing is who are their donors. And there's a lot of money that comes from this crowd. What they're all saying is that this was passed at the Supreme Court level. We're just agreeing with the Supreme Court. But that's not exactly as I understand it true. This is an opportunity for them to be what our founders intended. It checks and balances in how far this law is codified and how much of a nuisance it becomes to the faith community. And so at the very least, they need to consider language in the in this that excludes religious organizations and I've yet to hear about that. Well,

The 12 Republican Traitors Who Supported 'Respect for Marriage Act'

"Yesterday about this respect for marriage act, and in a nutshell, this is going to put a target on every single church Christian school, Christian business owner in America. You're a nonprofit. They're going to yank your tax exempt status. That's what's going to happen with this. So they had to pass this thing. There was a major hurdle they had to pass, and they were able to do it last night. 12 Senate Republicans joined Democrats. To push through this plan to codify gay marriage. And again, this is not about gay marriage. This is about not protecting religious liberty. And there's a very good chance if this thing gets passed and it looks like it'll be passed with the entire Senate momentarily, and then it goes back to the house. And the house is going to pass it, and Biden's going to sign this into law. And then you will get a knock on the front door of your church from the Internal Revenue Service. That's what this is all about. So here are the 12 senators who joined the Democrats and I'm going to share these names, then you need to call these senators and you need to give them the what for. And then I want you to call us back and tell us what they said. But these are the senators who, by the way, previously were opposed to gay marriage to get elected, but now that they're in office, all of a sudden they've had a change of heart. So here they are. Roy blunt, Richard burr. Shelley capito, Susan Collins, Joni Ernst from Iowa, shame on you, Joni Ernst, Cynthia Loomis, Lisa Murkowski, typical rob Portman, Dan Sullivan, Mitt Romney, Tom tell us and Todd young.

Here's Why You Can't Have Ranked Choice Voting

Here's Why You Can't Have Ranked Choice Voting

"Why you can't have ranked choice voting. Is the worst. This is so frustrating. Protect democracy, but allow ranked choice voting. Kelly shabaka, she won the most votes she won a plurality of votes in a four way race with 44%. So she won the race, right, Charlie. Not in Alaska. But she had the most votes. Doesn't matter. You have to get 50 plus one or else or else what? You go to the second round of ranked choice voting. The what? So in Alaska, the way it works, and this was designed and implemented because thanks to project veritas, we know this. Lisa Murkowski put together a coup in Alaska. And basically said that if you do not get 50 plus one, then it goes to the second round. Now, some people say, well, Charlie, to be fair, we're not won his race, but he didn't get more than 50%. Well, that's a runoff system. This is a this is not even allowing for a runoff, which I would support. If there is a runoff now between Murkowski and shabaka, then great. That's fine. Let's do it. Shabaka would win by 20 points. But it would be would it be would have run off with the ranked choice voting again? No, no, no, no. Well, that's the point, is that there isn't. Instead of a runoff, which is annoying but understandable. Right. Because some people say, well, hold on a second. But Georgia. Like Charlie, you know, isn't a runoff system helping you in Georgia. Of course it is. Yes, it is, because Herschel Walker did not get a plurality. We're not going to plurality. The point is this is that this now goes to this goofy algorithmic second and third round, where they have to tabulate the votes, and I'll be very honest. I do not even understand how this is tabulated, where it depends on whether or not people ranked shabaka or if they did a second candidate. Shabaka's hope in this whole tabulation process is that if a vast majority of people only ranked shabaka and left the rest of the ballot completely blank. That's her hope.

Rebecca Weber: A Structural Voting Problem Promoted by Democrats

"Are reading Seamus column here, make some very good points for example. Mitch McConnell out there publicly endorsing and supporting candidates who were clearly anti Trump looking at rhino Lisa Murkowski, giving her money. He also spent big money on Murkowski, even though she voted to confirm kanti Brown Jackson while she voted against Brett Kavanaugh. This is an in your face move, meanwhile, you have Kevin McCarthy out there, and he is covertly and has been covertly supporting establishment candidates and trying to sabotage the campaigns of true conservative candidates out there. That's exactly right. And we saw that a lot of the candidates hand picked by Kevin McCarthy lost races. But again, major media knows that people know the Trump's name, the average person might not know who Kevin McCarthy is, unless you're paying attention to politics, right? And even if you look at what happened with the Oz betterman race, I don't think it's because Trump endorsed a bad candidate. I think that 70% of the democratic vote was mailed in prior to the debate. And we know that the debate was a bit of a goal. And we know this as a sediment campaign really misled the public. Saying that his stroke was not very severe. So we're seeing this over and over again. There's definitely a structural voting problem. We've seen that. We see how the Democrats are using COVID to implement and extend a vote by mail in early voting schemes. So this is something that we here at a Mac or very focused about or members care. We had over 12,000 amac members who participated as poll watchers, but this was an issue impacting the entire country and we've got a really work aggressively to remedy.

And Mitch McConnell is being called out. He's been called out by the Alaska Republican Party. You want to talk about talk about this? Yeah, so I saw this in the news that his leadership pack, the Senate leadership fund, has been running attack ads against shabaka, right? So Kelly shabaka has been on the podcast and she is the choice of the Republican Party of Alaska. She's the Republican nominee. So think about this. Here is the Senate majority leader Republican Mitch McConnell, attacking a Republican in Alaska. Why? Because he wants to help Lisa Murkowski hold dot seat. Yes. Now, Lisa Murkowski is the incumbent, but yes. Lisa Murkowski has run afoul of the Alaska Republican Party. Yes. They have well, they censure her. They did hurt the same thing to her too. Well, after she did after she voted for Trump's impeachment. And so the Alaska Republican Party says here has passed a 49 to 8 resolution. To tell McConnell to back off and you know, Kelly shabaka herself makes a very simple point, which is yeah, so she's like, his intervention in the Alaska race was wasting valuable resources that could go to defeat Democrats in other states. So, but you know what? What you talked about a couple of days ago about McConnell explains it all. McConnell is not really in it for the Republicans, if you think about it.

"Lisa Murkowski endorsed the Democrat running for the House and the Democrat running for the House endorsed Lisa Murkowski Is that correct That's correct So this is a somewhat significant shift in the Murkowski playbook What she typically does is says one thing in Alaska and does the opposite in D.C. So she'll say the Republican lines in Alaska like she ran paid ads up here saying that Joe Biden was coming to grab our guns while she colluded with Biden and McConnell on that extreme gun control legislation and red flag laws and she voted for it and got it through Those are completely against Alaska values even Democrats carry guns in Alaska So she'll say one thing here she'll do the opposite when she gets back to her friend in D.C. But this time she actually just said what she does She's pulling for Pelosi We've got four candidates on our congressional ballot three of them would caucus with the Republicans Every Republican across the country is trying to flip the house because the radical leftist agenda of Nancy Pelosi is hurting everybody and instead Murkowski who puts an R behind her name as polling for the Pelosi agenda There's only one candidate on our ballot who would caucus with Nancy Pelosi and line up with that radical left agenda And that's who Murkowski is putting her weight behind and by extension to your point That's who McConnell's funding We have more dark money in our state flooding this election supporting Mercedes key than either Murkowski or I have spent combined for our campaigns That's how much money is up here right now Trying to preserve the Murkowski monarchy because that's how significantly they can control her vote back in Washington D.C. but we don't want to senator bought bullied in boxed in by the establishment McConnell Biden and Pelosi We want to senator that represents our Alaska voice and values

It started as a grassroots organization of like minded Americans who started out in the states United States of America of the people by the people for the people And the idea that our quote Republican leader is coming in and dominating and domineering over the decisions and the determination of the delegates of the party of Alaska telling us who we have to vote for against our will is extremely offensive

"Is the conservative. She must be so good. Look how they're teaming up the defeater. Murkowski is exactly the kind of political inner thigh rash on our political body politic that is destroying this country. And you folks in Alaska have an opportunity to do something about this. You have a fantastic candidate running for the Senate. You have a fantastic candidate running for the House. Sarah Palin, but the way Murkowski set this up is only Murkowski can win the Senate if you allow her to. And the Democrats are going to take the house likely. So Murkowski endorses the Democrat for the house, the Democrat for the house and her party endorsed Murkowski.

To defeat the conservative, Trump back, reaganite, Kelly shabaka, to elect the teachers union thug favorite Republican Murkowski. We're counting on you, Alaska on election day. The voting is already going on. You got that weird ballot system. You just vote for the Senate race in shabaka and you move to the next group. That's it for the Senate. That's how you do it. Unbelievable. What's going on up there in Alaska? Home title crime is growing two and a half times faster than credit card fraud.

You get foreclosure notices. You've got four mortgages on your house. You don't even own your home anymore. It's not even in your name. Now this guy went to prison for this.

"The GOP resistance to former president Donald Trump, is fighting for her congressional career. In Alaska, GOP senator Lisa Murkowski, who voted to convict Trump in the January 6th impeachment trial, is hoping to survive her primary, joining us live now on Skype, political junkie podcast host Ken rudin, who is coordinated political coverage at both ABC News and NPR. And Ken political experts have been sounding the death knell for Liz Cheney's career in Congress, but we're now hearing about Democrats crossing over to help her fend off her primary challenger is this a viable strategy for Liz Cheney. Well, it's probably Michelle, the only strategy she has given the fact that the Republicans in Wyoming, Wyoming with Donald Trump's best state, he got 70% of the vote, Republicans, whereas the media and Democrats around the country see Liz Cheney as a hero. Given what she's doing to protect the democracy and point out what Donald Trump is doing. But back home in Wyoming, Republicans love Donald Trump. So Liz Cheney may have no choice other than to get Democrats to switch the only problem is that there's not many Democrats in Wyoming, so even if they all came to the polls today and voted for Liz Cheney, which of course a lot of Democrats think is kind of shocking, given the fact that they've never liked the Cheney family, all these years is still wouldn't be enough In Alaska, Republican senator Murkowski, as we talked about, is also facing a Trump backed primary challenger, but alaskans are using the ranked choice voting system for the first time this year. How does that work and what might it mean for Murkowski's chances? Well, remember, Lisa Murkowski was defeated for renomination in the 2010 primary because she wasn't conservative enough and wound up winning reelection that year as a writing. If this was just a basic one on one contest with Kelly Chewbacca, who was another Republican who was facing today, Lisa Murkowski would probably lose. But with this ranked choice voting, it looks like that both Murkowski and Chewbacca and two other candidates because it's the top four who go on to November. They will survive today, but I suspect that given the fact that this rank choice voting seems to help more moderate candidates getting rid of the extremes, it probably will help Murkowski in November. But again, we have a long way to go before we find out who wins that race. There's also, of course, Sarah Palin, whose future is on the line in today's special election. She's up for Don young, who was in Congress for 49 years, died in March, Sarah Palin, is among three candidates in today's special election. Again, also a ranked choice voting to see if her if her career, which basically she gave up when she gave up the governorship in 2009, can be renewed. What do you think her chances are Palin's? Well, you know, there are a lot of people who still love her. They love the she tells it as it is, and she's very conservative and, you know, she has her personality, which a lot of people like. But I think a lot of people in Alaska I've talked to a bunch in the last couple of weeks. They do feel that, you know, she gave up on the statement she quit the governorship. She seems to be more interested in talk shows and reality shows. And then right-wing causes more so than campaigning in Alaska. So there's two interesting two people who are running in that special election today. Mary peltola is at Alaska native who's a Democrat. Again, a Democrat has won the House seat in Alaska since 1972. And the other candidate is Nick begich the third who's a Republican, his grandfather, was Nick begich senior who was actually the predecessor to Don young and Congress until he died in a plane crash and 1972. So Sarah Palin does have her supporters, but my guess is, is that because of ranked choice voting, she may wind up finishing third in this election. But again, with the Alaska weird counting, they'll still be counting till August 31st with write ins and things like that. We may not know for a winner until maybe the first week of September. Can we appreciate the analysis? Thanks, Michelle. That is Ken rudin, political junkie podcast host joining us live on Skype. We'll have sports next. It's 8

"Alaska and Wyoming are home to the next marquee primary contest this season where Republicans who have challenged former president Trump face the voters. For congresswoman Liz Cheney, the stakes could not be more clear for what this election contest represents. She is in the fight for her political life back home in Wyoming, and this is how she made the closing pitch to voters in her state. America can not remain free if we abandon the truth. The lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen is insidious. No matter how long we must fight, this is a battle we will win. Ever since, Liz Cheney voted to impeach Donald Trump in the aftermath of January 6th, and as you know, she was one of ten House Republicans to do so. She made her mission for her political professional life to be about eradicating Donald Trump from the Republican Party. For this, she not only has drawn the former president's ire. She lost her job as chairman of the House Republican conference. She was booted out of leadership, and she found herself on an island largely inside the House of Representatives, which is exactly why Nancy Pelosi plucked her out of the Republican Party to be the vice chair of the January 6th committee in the House. That prominent role also made sure that she stayed in Donald Trump's crosshairs. There is no rhino in America was thrown in her lot with the radical left more than Liz Cheney. The people of Wyoming are going to tell her, Liz, you're fired, get out of here. That was former president Trump supporting his preferred candidate in today's primary, Harriet hagerman. She is the beneficiary of all the Trump maga crowd antipathy for Liz Cheney. Despite the fact that actually Harriet hagerman, just a few years ago, when Liz Cheney first ran for Congress in 2016 was a high profile supporter of hers. Here's what Harriet hagman sounds like these days. We're

"Campaign 2022 on WTO, Alaska and Wyoming are holding big primary elections right now. In Alaska, Republican senator Lisa Murkowski faces some political headwinds over her vote to convict Donald Trump in early 2021. Trump has made Murkowski big target he held rally in Alaska earlier this summer where he was really targeting Murkowski. Murkowski just has to make it to the top four tonight where she can get through to the general in November. But Murkowski is known as that swing vote, Republicans have said that she has quote enabled Democrats. But when you look at polls and when polls account for the rank choice vote, system in Alaska, it shows her ahead but only barely on Shabbat and that could be a benefit of the ranked choice voting system, which some Trump critics have blamed Murkowski for pushing to get and still. That CBS reporter Aaron Navarro also in Alaska one time GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is running for the right to fill the rest of the term of the late congressman Don young. Meantime in Wyoming, GOP congresswoman Liz Cheney could get unseated as backlash for her role as vice chair of the House committee investigating the capitol riot. Many voters there are upset with her blistering criticism of former president Trump, but some Democrats are actually switching parties to vote in the Republican race, Washington Post politics reporter amber Phillips tells us that will not be enough to make a difference for Cheney. My colleague Paul king talked to strategists in the Satan said she'd need 40,000 Democrats, most likely to switch over. And we just haven't seen those numbers in registration. That would be a huge grand swallow democratic support for this really, really conservative. Let's not forget Republican member Congress. She was being talked about as maybe the next Republican House speaker. And now it's likely she will lose her job in Congress. Last week, a university of Wyoming polls showed Cheney trailing her challenger Harriet hagerman by a staggering 29 point margin. COVID has interrupted the first family South Carolina vacation First Lady Jill Biden has tested positive for the virus, and that's prompted the president to change some plans.

When the national archives realized they did not have White House documents that were required by law to preserve, they contacted philbin, the deputy White House council to help retrieve the material. Sources tell the times the former president repeatedly insisted the items belonged to him, not the national archives, a spokesperson for philbin has not responded to a request for comment.

In Alaska, a sometimes critic of the former president is also on the ballot. But senator Lisa Murkowski has a better chance to survive her race because of a new nonpartisan primary system.

"Want a senator in there who's got common sense conservative values and is going to vote the way Alaska wants someone who won't be bullied or silenced or controlled by the D.C. insiders that's been my career is holding government officials accountable, exposing waste fraud and abuse and making sure government works for us, not against us. They don't want me in there. But that's what a lot of people don't. Alaska needs. That's what America needs Stan. The swampies don't want you. You're talking to Kelly Chewbacca. She is the choice and tomorrow is Alaska primary for the U.S. Senate. Kelly, the problem I have with her, Lisa Murkowski, too, is if you're a senator on the Republican side in a blue state. We don't have many of them. But I'm thinking of when we had the pandemic, Mark Kirk, or something like that. You know what? I wish you would vote our values. But I would be lying to you if I said, okay, I didn't get it. I get what you're doing. I don't agree with it, but I understand it. I may not like losing to the mets in the subway series, but I understand they may be a better team if the groms on the mound. That's from my producer Kelly totally different topic for another day. But what I don't get is when you have a Lisa Murkowski in a blood red liberty loving state like Alaska, who can't seem to find conservatism on a map. And one of the ways I think my opinion, I want to get yours, you're there. That they are trying to tailor this election to make it more amenable to Lisa Murkowski. Is this dreadful rank choice voting? Can you please explain to the voters who are understanding because I got political friends who do this for a living, Kelly, who are confused by this damn system. Can you explain to alaskans who want to support you, how this works, what they should do here? I can explain the solution very easy. If you want me to win in November, vote Kelly circle the number one and then move on to the next election, which is our congressional election. That's the easiest thing. Keep it simple and move on. This is what actually happened. They all got exposed by project veritas last week with a bunch of undercover videos. Murkowski and her campaign staff, it's really horrific. They conspired in colluded together to deceive alaskans in order to manipulate our election system to try and rig the outcome in her favor. This is really similar to the stuff that we are seeing in 2000 mules and other places about stuff that happened in the 2020 election. Let's see if we can rig the outcome of the election and somebody's favor who otherwise would never be elected by alaskans, which is what they admit on the videos. We have some Murkowski would never be elected this year if you just played a straight up honest election, but I'll tell you, Dan, she's not going to be elected anyway. She might make it through the primary. And draw out her pain, three months longer, that's fine. The Murkowski monarchy of 41 years is ending this November because no matter how you cut it, this ranked choice thing what happens is four people will go to November and then voters can or can not choose to rank people. Murkowski is not going to come in first. She has to climb her way to a majority of the votes through second and third place selections, but out here when I'm talking to people, everybody is saying it's time for a change. Democrats are mad at her because she's not pro choice enough she's really inconsistent on abortion, right after the Dobbs decision came down, she voted against codifying roe versus wade, then she tells people who are common sense, I'm not for late term abortions or taxpayer funded abortions, but then just a week and a half ago, she introduced the bill for late term abortions and she's consistently voted for taxpayer funded abortions. So where the heck does she stand on this stuff and the point is nobody knows as usual just said she's an unreliable vote on anything, which is why nobody in Alaska can trust her on anything, which is why I don't think you're going to see a lot of people voting for her. You're just going to see a lot of people abstaining or voting against her. Murkowski is retiring this year, whether she wants to or not, and Alaska is going to get an Alaska value senator in there. That's what's happening. Good. I hope so we're talking to Kelly Chewbacca. Kelly, I got about a little less than two minutes left, but I'd be doing my audience and disservice if I didn't get an answer for you on the Mar-a-Lago rate. It is the story that is just sucked all of America into this just vortex of what appears to be another episode of targeting Donald Trump as a former federal agent who, you know, swore to protect and defend the constitution in the United States and men every word of it. I find this constant targeting of Donald Trump to be abhorrent. And if you get in the United States Senate, will you be looking into this? I hope the answer is yes. Absolutely. You know this well and so do I have started my career out overseeing the FBI and then did so for, oh gosh, maybe a total of 14 or 15 years in various positions, I'm concerned about this the same way you are. This is an issue of equal protection under the law. We have situations where sandy Berger and Hillary Clinton weren't held to the same standard. We have to wonder why they didn't just go and enforce the subpoena that they had, you know, that would have been less intrusive alternative to the search warrant. That's a force amendment issue. These are the questions our senators should be asking, they're the linebackers for the constitution. These are the questions I would be asking. If I were still in my watchdog capacity, that's what the senators are supposed to do. So I'm happy to take up that position. My opponent's been completely silent on this. I mean, she condones the politicization and weaponization of law enforcement under Biden. That's wrong. Of course, she's quite. She loves this. She can't stand Donald Trump. Kelly, what is your website if you could just say it so our audience is Kelly Chewbacca. Make sure you vote tomorrow in Alaska. This is not, it's an Alaska seat, but it's not folks. It's a national seat. Only alaskans can

All of the election All of the election proceedings everything. The left us in order to get joe biden in that white house. The left wants to be able to return to that In the next year in two thousand twenty two. That's their goal ultimately. That's who the left is. You're going to need fighters beyond you're going to need fighters in office guys. I i i i gotta say. We're we're gonna play this clip in a second of larry elder. But it's going to be incumbent. Upon us i look at these republicans. And let me final. Let me go through my stack of brilliance here. But i'm looking at some of these republicans whether it's senator lisa murkowski all of these people that are selling out the republican party. Think they're doing a good thing they're dealing with people on the left that are not virtuous. They're dealing with people that going bankrupt this country and the republican parties complicit in it. I can't believe what is the name of that senator from Bill cassidy from louisiana. I've got to be honest with you. He really shocked me. I didn't think he would be a par. Play a part of this nonsense. That joke going for the gusto with the rest of the republicans. The same is true for senator. Thom tillis in the republican in north carolina. See i expect. Democrats act like democrats. I expect stack like leftists. What i don't expect is for republicans as say they're fiscally responsible for republicans at say they want smaller government because they understand that big government means that we the people grow smaller and smaller smaller in our impact on politicians grow smaller and smaller and smaller. Didn't expect them to participate in this. But i expected the mitt romney's other world because he's a he's virtually democrat. But it's very disappointing. So it's very important that you elect fighters to office not just a republican per se but fighters. I want you to hear this clip from From larry elder audio clip number five. This is what a fighter sounds like. So what is your position on this. Do you believe in manmade climate change and global warming. I've never said climate changes. And i decided you to find any where i've said that i have talked about climate change. Alarmists climate is always changing. Climate is changing. The question is what we do about it. Do we do we deal with the effects of it or do we four-speed a fossil base. A renewables based economy down the throats of a people jacking up the price of energy a disproportionate pain for for pete. That's the question. But of course there's climate change in the climate is getting warmer by maybe about a degree or so in the last several years and it likely will continue. The question is what do we do about so you do believe that. Fires for instance in california have gotten worse because of climate change. I'm not sure is because of climate change. Fires have gotten worse because of the failure of this governor to engage in sensible fire suppression. He lied about about about obstetric seven. How many fallen trees and dead vegetation look at people that have forced on of they don't have the same kind of severity of fires as as the public lands. Do i'm going to hire the best experts. And and make sure that we do the kind of force management. That's necessary in order for us to to reduce the severity of these these artists. All right larry elder. We appreciate you being here. We hope to continue the conversation over the coming weeks ahead of the recall september. Thank you thank you and we do wanna point out that many times that we have extended an invitation to governor newsom to join us to give him a platform as well so far. His team has declined. Of course his team has declined. Because what what gavin. Some doesn't want to is make this a race. Between he and larry elder it would be much easier. This is why i employed many of you in the listening audience You know if you live in california. I will be telling these other guys to get out of the race understand that people. Some people disagree with me but this isn't a primary process. You get a once in a generation or once in a lifetime. Opportunity to recall a governor. Like this i i mean obviously it happened with a gray davis but before that it was i mean i it was a. It was a great length. Distance between gray davis in A recall election like that happening or occurring in california so this is an opportunity of a lifetime. This is an opportunity. I mean such a beautiful state. California's this is an opportunity to take it back to those days of old where it was nice clean you knew the good neighborhoods from the bad. I'm i'm telling you. I went to venice beach the last time i was there. I drove up Up to malibu. And not only was i looking at some of the nice housing out there. I was looking at all the the nice homeless tense. So who has the best homeless ten. Oh and that guy you can sleep to in there. i mean. It was absolutely astonishing to me.

"GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski has called on President Trump to resign as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a caucus telephone call earlier today in which they discussed everything from 25th amendment to how to get the president to resign. Calls for impeachment. We have every angle covered, but we begin tonight with an exclusive interview with centrist Republican governor of Maryland Larry Hogan. Governor. Welcome back to my program. Thank you for coming on it. What do you think is the best course of action for the country and the executive branch. Well, first of all, thank you. Thanks for having me on this. I said yesterday when I was asked about this that I really did believe that it was best for Country if the president would would resign or leave office on that, Mike Pence could lead the orderly transition of power until we get the inauguration and get the President Biden sworn in now, you know, I know there's lots of speculation about what should happen. How it might happen. You know, I'm busy out here in the state of Maryland trying toe. Trying to deal with covert crisis right now, and not part of the inner workings of what's happening in Washington, so I can't can't tell you what the latest is, but I'm sure you're more up on it than I am. But I do believe That it would be good for the country to hell. And if we could move on, I don't know how they're gonna get something really done over the next 12 days or whatever it is, but I think it would be smart if the president would step aside and let Mike Pence conduct the orderly transition. Governor. When I've been talking to sources throughout the day, including sources within the White House, there's this concern really that that exists about what might happen between now and inauguration. Do you share some of the concerns that Republicans have raised both quietly and publicly? About about what could happen between now and Inauguration Day. Well, you know, I've been concerned. Obviously, the events of Wednesday shocked the world and you know we're in a much different place than we were. But we've had it kind of this strange, bizarro world for a couple of months where things that you didn't imagine could be happening were happening. I never thought I'd see the day. Like that This could happen in America. But You know, there's no telling. I mean, I just don't know what's going on inside the mind of the president are what's going on inside the White House, but it seems to be Really perilous situation, and I think it's a time we all we really need to be cautious and cooler heads prevail, and that's why I thought it was best to try to Get things under control. You know, And I think this is important folks, and we're talking with Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland and what you mentioned about as even clear in your position over the last 24 hours and calling on President Trump. To resign. I spoke with one source connected to the White House today who works with Cabinet level officials who told me about the Constitution, 25th amendment and how that is actually enacted. A lot of the current social media environment that we live in. It's important to actually read the Constitution. So from your perspective governor as a scholar, so to speak. Is the 25th Amendment, the right course of action, given the limited number of days that are left between now and January, 20th. Well, first of all, thanks for calling me a scholar. But I'm pretty cool, huh? You know, that's what I was saying. I'm not sure I believe the best. Uh, action. The best way to handle it would be for the president to resign because I'm not sure whether really in the short period of time that we have that any other After this is possible or doable. I mean, look, it's uh I'm not sure whether they have the time to get it done. I hear they're talking about they're talking about in pizza Impeachment proceedings. I mean, look, this can that can't get done that fast. We've been trying for 8.5 months together. Kogod relief bill that was desperately needed through the Congress. I just think you know my dad was on the House Judiciary Committee is first Republican to come out for Nixon's impeachment and Right after his vote eyes when Nixon decided to resign the presidency and you know as bad as Watergate, Woz, the president had the The pieces of the state of mind where he knew it was the right thing for the country and any any stepped aside. I'm sure it was the hardest thing he had to do, but it was the right thing for the country, and I think it's the same thing that the president trump out of this. Governor Speaker Pelosi a swell It's looking like they're inching closer toward impeachment proceedings on guy really don't like to do. This is a journalist, but I gotta ask you and a hypothetical situation because you are a leader of the Republican Party. Do you support impeachment? Well, of course, I don't have a vote on impeachment. But if that's the, uh I don't vote in the Congress. But, uh, that's the That's the position that if the Republicans in the House and the Senate are willing to take that step, and that's the only way it's gonna happen, then And I would be supportive of their actions. So you think that if impeachment similar to Nixon worked to signal as you mentioned with your father, where to signal a move for the president to resign, that that would be the right course of action? Well, I think him to resign would be the right course of action. But I'm not sure that's going to happen. And I'm not sure an impeachment or 25th amendment's gonna happen either. I think the most likely outcome is that I'm going to spend the next 12 days kind of hoping that things go smoothly and nobody's gonna be sworn in on January 20th. All right, and let's There's been a lot of talk over the last couple of days. And you've you've talked about the situation with National Guard being sent to Washington, D C and what happened, but just give us the chronology of what happened on Wednesday with sending a support to the nation's capital. Sure, Well, it was a surreal kind of day were busy, busy day focused on you Know, vaccines and co big crisis and I was planning to do and economic Relief announcement and I was on a zoom with the Japanese ambassador. I'm gonna teleconference when my chief of staff Walked in on informed me that the U. S. Capitol was under attack on Di. I didn't wasn't watching television. That was a real meeting. S so I excused myself from that. Call with the ambassador immediately and I convene my entire security team. My senior staff, our homeland security advisers, superintendent of Maryland State police, the pageant in general, the Maryland National Guard. Brought them all in. We've got assembled everybody within, you know, five minutes, either on the phone or in person. On and you know, I I talked with the mayor of D. C. Who There was requesting assistance, and I spent our entire mobile field force of more than 200 especially trained in our Maryland police directly into the city. And I told the National Guard are agin in general to immediately call up 500 members of Maryland National Guard and have them ready to deploy. While these discussions are going on I get a call from Steny Hoyer, who? Festa may that He's in a bunker or in some undisclosed location in a room with Seeker. Pelosi and With Chuck Schumer and he's you know, pleading with me for help because the Capitol police have been overrun. Uh, they don't speak. They don't have any federal help, and he's asking me he's you know he's up. He's a leader of Congress. He's a Maryland con reputation Maryland and he's called me at the Maryland governor. Next door to say, Can you send The police and the National Guard and I so I told him the very state police were already en route and should be there shortly and that I had deployed the guard, but I waited We could not send the guard into the sea without.
