Fresh update on "national review" discussed on Ben Shapiro
"Decisis only matters when the Supreme Court says it matters as Dan McLaughlin says. In June, Medical Services LLC versus Russo, Justices Clarence Thomas annual Little Bread Cabinet and Neil Gorsuch upheld that Louisiana law chief Justice Roberts sided but the courts for liberals claiming his hands were tied by President In the 2016 case. Whole women's Health vs Heller The court ruled 53 against the Texas abortion law that required abortion providers have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles stage routinely impose such requirements on the practice of medicine, especially invasive or surgical procedures. As justice Gorsuch observed. In that case, Louisiana law in this case transit longstanding state laws governing physicians performed relatively low risk procedures like colonoscopies, LASIK, eye surgeries and steroid injections and ambulatory surgical centers. Court. In both of these cases, the 2016 case on the Texas law and the case on Louisiana Law ruled, quote an unnecessary health regulations that have the purpose or effect of presenting a substantial obstacle to a woman seeking an abortion imposing and do an undue burden on the right to an abortion. But what the court defines is on a necessary requirement would be un controversially legal for any other medical procedure under the sun, And of course, there is no constitutional right to abortion. Itjust doesn't exist Normally, if you vote one case four years ago, one way you don't switch and vote the other way in the exact same case four years later. But Justice Roberts gave the liberals the difference. They would not apply themselves. Writing. I joined the descent in whole women's health and continue to believe the case was wrongly decided. The question today is not whether whole women's health was right or wrong on whether to adhere to it. The legal doctrine of starry decisis requires us absent special circumstances to treat like cases alike. Except for the fact that the whole woman's health decision overturned. A prior decision had already said the opposite. Right, the four liberals allowed to do over in the whole women's health case. Justice Alito pointed out that the whole women's health decision disregarded basic rules apply in all other cases. Sorry decisis supposed to promote stability in law by hearing too consistent, impregnable rules, But the opinion striking down Louisiana law didn't do any of that stuff. Robertson joined the majority opinion, which is written by Justice Breyer. By joining Malcolm. He prevented the court's conservatives from doing anything to keep the court. I'm constantly rewriting its own rules. This is the point that is being made here. My damn McLaughlin in National Review. Abortion law is governed by a 1992 decisions. Planned Parenthood V. Casey, one of the worst cases in Supreme Court history, in which the court declared that people have a right to define The world in the universe for themselves. I mean, I'm not getting that's actually in the language of the decision. As Roberts noted, Casey asked whether an abortion law imposing under board burden of the court and the whole women's health, and the plurality today change the rules to make it a balancing test that reviews the pros and cons of the law. Robert's reiterated that whole women's health, therefore departs from Casey and asks the court to buy a test. They're not competent to administrate this again. In Roberts's opinion, quote. In this context, courts applying a balancing test would be asked, in essence away the state's interest in protecting the potentiality of human life and the health of the woman on one hand against the woman's liberty interest in defining her own concept of existence of meaning of the universe and of the mystery of human life on the other. That is that that that quote is from Planned Parenthood versus case That's what I was referring to, which is just idiotic. There's no plausible sense in which anyone, let alone this court objectively assign weight, such imponderable values and no meaningful way to compare them If there were Attempting to do so would be like judging whether a particular line is longer than a particular rock is heavy. It's what justice Hansel and as in, Scalia said on Planned Parenthood vs Casey, pretending we could pull that off would require us to act as legislators, not judges. We've explained the traditional rule that state and federal legislatures have wide discretion to pass legislation in areas where there's medical and scientific uncertainty is consistent with Casey right. That last line is pretty poignant. Okay, but Roberts joined the majority opinion he joined the majority opinion. Which is insane. They basically demolished the majority opinion, and then you joined the majority opinion. Which is crazy, Just crazy. Town's okay. That is one thing that Robert C. He rolled in a second case in which he saved the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. So for those who don't know, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was a piece of government machinery created independent of the executive branch of the government. The head of the Cfpb could not be fired their basic idea. They were empowered with overwhelming powers. Incredible powers I've talked about on the program before. Incredible powers to oversee business in the United States and fine businesses and investigate businesses and the head of it was not answerable to the executive branch. Which means that it violates the separation of powers because you either work for the Legislature where he worked for the executive or you work for the judiciary. There is no unaccountable fourth branch of government, Cfcb set up ahead of the Cfpb's, That person could not be fired. So See, this comes up before the court. And what is the court? Do they uphold the presence of the Cfpb? By basically saying, Okay, You know what we understand The head can't be fired. But just because the head can't be fired doesn't mean that we can't make him viral by the president. So we're just going to rewrite the law Wholesale. Basically the same thing that that Roberts didn't obamacare world where he declared that a tax was that it was actually that if he was actually attacked But he just rewrote the law in order to save wants to do the exact same thing, joining a five for a majority. Stan McLaughlin says. In the second case, Delia Law versus Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the chief Justice, wrote the court's opinion declaring the Congress in 2010 Dodd Frank Act had violated the separation of powers by placing the Cfpb's head beyond the reach of presidents to remove at will. It's an epic embarrassment for Elizabeth Warren, who designed the CFDT end for President Obama. But Roberts pulled up short of concluding that agency created in violation of the Constitution lack the power to compel the citizenry so they could go ahead and continue operating as normal. We're just gonna make the person fireable by the president. If Congress passes it unconstitutional statute. Generally you strike it down unless there is a severability provisions. Right severability provisions is a provision in the law that says you can carve off this portion of law and declared invalid if you do that, and here's our backup plan. Congress didn't do any of that. So Roberts just did it for them. Robert, you said. Okay, fine. You know what? We're gonna make this person fireable by the president, and then we'll just preserve the law. So Roberts is just doing the work of the left at this point. Coming up. America is not just about a philosophy rights or a legal culture of rights. We have to have a culture.

Congressional action considers making it easier to sue police for misconduct
"Congressional action and it's it's best way is to fix the qualified immunity now qualified immunity was established in nineteen sixty eight it basically gives the sort of an extra layer of protection over top of police they said police can't do their job or they have a difficult time doing it if they knew every time they did something they could possibly have to find themselves in court or they be liable for the action so they sort of set up this little you know kind of back door that allowed police to put their hands on you you know you're on to the ground and bang on the hood of the car you get handcuffed and things like that and they basically have set up this thing called qualified immunity and if you look at it and you think about okay do that sixty eight they did at sixty eight because things were so rough in sixty eight what with America was going through the re establish it for that reason what was the intent of setting up qualified immunity senator Cory Booker who has said a lot of really inflammatory things recently said this there is a standard that has gotten cold qualified immunity which is is what it sounds like it's making officers many of them who've done very bad things immune from civil suits as well and so our bill one of the one of the pillars of that will say that no one is above the law and if you do heinous things that tear at the fabric of our community or even in danger or take lives that that that the federal government the United States will take action to hold you accountable and you will be subject to that accountability and so that's one color other colors just Hey Erica accountability means you have to have standards well you have to love to be able to measure progress towards a standard so when we do something really radical America just keep a database all of of of of the of the use of force actions of when police shoot people and killed him and and and if the police misconduct so police officer can't get charge macabre misconduct one pleased former leave moved to another state and and get a job so up to explain qualify unity in that there's a case that was brought for by this woman and she was pregnant she's in Seattle she gets pulled over by the police she refuses to sign something it's basically she's not admitting anything it's just you sign this which just says you know you've got some injury have to appear in court right just want to sign it they got to get out of the car the bigger the car she's pregnant the cops are trying to determine like where you want to taser Dante's in the stomach I think a taser like taser neck so she goes to bring a case against him she now has to prove that that the police were acting in such a way that there is a prior action that was taken against another civilian by the police and that the police were found guilty of this you almost and somebody has to be a trailblazer have it happen to them have the copy found guilty in order for you to then bring your case forward in this half find it it's the strangest thing if you can't find that then you sorry you can't bring a civil case against the police officer yeah this is a national refuted a great review of the of this incident and the reason I think it's so complicated that goes back a hundred and fifty years yes there were a hundred fifty years ago there's a real question do feds have any kind of jurisdiction over local law enforcement and they decided yes but you can't prosecute a cop in a local jurisdiction if he doesn't know that it's unconstitutional and so what they said is okay well that's it's kind of based on common sense but then they've been as the of the rider in the National Review puts so many incredibly stupid cases that it doesn't really help the way they thought to justify this kind of qualified immunity as if a cop doesn't know what he's doing is unconstitutional you can't then charging for doing something unconstitutional yeah and so the way to prove that he did something unconstitutional was has there been a case exactly like the one that he's now being charged with right there where they judge judicata that well of course every single case brought just about is in some ways a little different and so because of that there was never in a situation where a pregnant woman was tased yeah that was determined to be unconstitutional and therefore you could never bring anything you know against against a cop under this qualified immunity and sold the thrust of the article National Review is right now this is being adjudicated in the Supreme Court yes and his argument is and that's why I think it's it's interesting coming full circle that's a review is like for smart conservatives I mean they're very they're intellectually honed there like William F. Buckley guys the he was when he started it and their argument is exactly in effect what Cory Booker is doing which is this needs to be addressed not by the courts but by Congress that Congress needs to come up with a new way to interpret it because that is supreme court in all the courts are so caught up in this a hundred fifty years of jurisprudence that it's it's just it's too murky to add to have fixed and my only objection Miley retort to the guy the writer National Review is yeah right when can we you know trust Congress to come up with some kind of new quotes the law that will you know work for what now is being argued is qualified immunity which is you know no you know kind of new ones I just think that it's going to be impossible for to get a majority from whichever party is in control to get this out past one hundred so that's the argument and so Cory Booker saying okay here's an idea here's what we should to how we should approach and I would assume the guy the National Review would say good for you Corey I'd rather to be handled in the Senate then in the Supreme Court this I think I don't you sort of scoffed at the idea happen in Congress but I believe time you don't have people on the left and the right would both like to clear this up it is a catch twenty two that is created by this so what you end up having is it we're precedent doesn't exist a court can punch on the question is whether the cop broke the law which in turn in short the president the president never gets established right exactly okay well what was weird with the somebody else's pregnant now okay then you know what that's new we have to be so therefore we're not going to have

"A National Review online at National Review dot com this is Kelley in the mix of Missouri hello Kelly thank you very much pastor here in southwest Missouri and I would just tell you this as I look at Michael Cohen's case you know you one of the questions you raised and I love your show so much I just want to say that thank you thank you for one of the question one of the questions raised was how did he get his name back email is with god he never lost his name his name is very much intact you know the people are falsely accused will always rise above the cream and I would just say that if I my hope is that the president one of the best president we've ever had in our whole country while Donald Trump will put him in position to allow him to participate you will find a way to get him a high paying job where you can earn his money back and I think Michael Flynn not only has the rights but needs to needs to do the following his Instagram after the people after justice because justice is important he needs to go and express himself in a more open way and finally say what he needs to say but I give him so much respect because as a dad if you come after my son you have to go through me and that's what Michael Flynn dead that's what he did no I praise god that that that this thing has come to pass we bring for a very long time that he would get justice and that is that he would be prosecuted for something that was totally set up and I cannot wait I cannot wait to Mister John during goes through M. releases his findings the U. S. Connecticut yes yeah yeah my hope is that bad that those people who are falsely accused them will pay the price nothing no biblical about that and it is good restitution for them and if they do that maybe they will get to know the lord to all right points well taken Kelly it is the point that he brings up but dot in that I was wondering about Michael Flynn getting his money back I would hope frankly that there is a basis for some criminal prosecutions here but I would certainly think that there ought to be some most civil action possible that might bring about restitution there are procedures within the justice department for people to file claims in the federal U. S. court of claims for legal and other fees and I strongly suspect that Mr Clinton is outstanding attorney Sidney Powell home I hope you have one of the guest we have in the past and we'll have her back on I think that I think that the flame that will be reimbursed and Sidney Powell be justly compensated one can that can certainly hope so other aspects of the case in the conclusion that you'd like us to remember well as much as Michael Flynn was.

"Senior writer for the National Review online he's you can follow him at David Harsanyi on Twitter and he is of course the order of the Superbook on the second amendment court first freedom David welcome back to America first thank you for having me let's get straight to the meat of the issue did did are you shocked by how rapidly and without even a whimper the American people acquiesced to the diminution the curtailing of various of their rights under the coronavirus response it is somewhat surprising I think and you know hi there as I have argued in written I think it's one thing to convince people Hey you have to stay inside be responsible don't get your neighbors sick except truck that's one thing it's another thing to simply without any kind of process or any kind of vote just tell them that they they can't buy seeds in a store that the campus or buy certain products find it incredible that we just allow them to do that I'm not saying you have to go out I'm saying there's a difference and it's it's it's it's it's I think worrying that so many Americans don't either know that difference don't care enough to to speak up about it and then what about the paucity the the the the the weakness the the the weak source that is the state of the federalism in America today we we seem to be getting whiplash from the mainstream media either the president is too much of an authoritarian because he isn't doing things from the perch of of the commander-in-chief's Ole Ole he he he he's he's curtailing the rights of governors when he talks about his authority is the president is it really have we forgotten so much in terms of why this nation was created the wait was created as a Republic David absolutely think that's been a problem for a long time we went through eight years of Obama where he just constantly was undermining federalism and other products parts of the constitution now I didn't like when Donald said Donald Trump said that yet full authority every phrase that but he also knows the ultimate authorities would seldom I mean but that was a so so he's already walked that back to sleep that's a rhetorical thing that he said I wish she didn't say it but this is the call of people who for eight years were defending every you know every move Barack Obama made to undermine federalism starting with obamacare which centralized healthcare policy for them to complain about that it's just laughable and then when you bring it up they tell you Hey yeah you're still talking about Obama yeah I'm still talking to president is running for the presidency of the United States and he supports all those programs so I think it's a big problem that we don't understand what federalism is a lot of people don't end up with it so easily discarded whenever there's a even the suppose that this is a real American people even when they're slight emergencies so the president's gonna make big announcements tonight Greg Abbott in Texas is prepared to make one tomorrow I believe it is the latest reporting if we get back to some kind of quayside normalcy in the next few months David as a follower of these issues will we forget all of this or will this be an opportunity to revisit these issues and to remind ourselves why we are a Republic of fifty states or are we going to be condemned to being there the Americans of the cliche short term memory it's also affecting we'll we'll forget but in other ways I'm I'm pretty hopeful for couples for more than a couple of reasons that we're going to reassess how we deal with things starting with federalism I think you see many of the state dealing with these issues better than other states right I think that citizens will look at it and say you know I'm I'm happy that this is a localized issue for me because I'm not in New York and I don't have to deal with things the same way and in other ways you know and there are other ways as well we solve the federal government's failing and I you know what the CDC sailing the FDA sailing initially menu so states doing a better job so hopefully people will and not just states companies you know the free market approach reacting much quicker including filmmakers who can make masks for you I think that's important so I hopefully people remember those things a time to reassess the time to re calibrate and remind ourselves what makes this nation unique in one of those things is of course the second amendment check out David's book first freedom one of the most inclusive expansive and interesting books on the history of the gun culture and all rights in the United States balance of nature changing the world one life at a time I haven't got a gold and two and a half years my wife can I get my track record because she seen me not get sick my daughter got sick over Christmas my wife got it about three days after she left I went through both of them didn't get sick like like to think my immune system is armored up and I'm able to repel the

"Has a good piece over at National Review talking about the mortality rates from a corona virus again we're in the midst of the bad news I mean this is this is the midst of the bad news that we are watching right now he says according to world dominance to test XPS mortality rate should rate has now surged to two point one six percent and two four thousand one hundred deaths out of a hundred ninety thousand reported cases as of this morning I remember again those mortality rates are much higher than the number of people actually have coronavirus there a lot of mild cases they're a lot of people who are asymptomatic and so does the fatality rates are again much lower now but even if they're off by an order of magnitude that still twice as deadly as the flu overall last week this is about one point five percent U. S. rate is still less than half the global rate which is five percent forty four thousand deaths out of eight hundred eighty five thousand reported cases and that probably is a gross understatement given the fact that China has been lying and lying and lying in fact there's a widespread story out there that our intelligence community shock of shocks that our intelligence community I know giant shock has found that China was lying about this whole thing who could have predicted that China was lying so for everyone who has half a brain melon that is breaking according to Bloomberg news speech today in Bloomberg news China has concealed the extent of the crime virus outbreak in this country under reporting the total cases and deaths it is suffered from the disease according to the US intelligence community and that is going to three US officials the officials asked not to be identified because the reported secret inclined to detail its contents the thrust they said is that China's public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete two of the officials said the report concludes China's numbers are absolutely thank which was absolutely obvious right yeah there came a certain point where they just stopped reporting any new cases in any deaths it wasn't like they sort of ease into it was like dad okay now does anyone really think that's what happened in the epicenter of this thing the outbreak began in China's Hubei province in late twenty nineteen the country's only reported thirty three hundred deaths if you believe that you're insane you're insane the United States are imported almost five thousand deaths but had it not not even close not even close communication staff of the White House in the Chinese embassy in Washington did not respond to requests for comment Mike pence has basically acknowledged publicly that this is going on Penn said yeah we would be better off trying to had been lying about this thing for monsters Mike pence the reality is that we could been better off if China had been more forthcoming I mean the the reality is that China's been more transparent with regard to the corona virus then certainly there were for for other infectious diseases over the last fifteen years but what what appears evident now is that long before the world learned in December that the China was dealing with this and maybe as much as much as a month earlier than that that it the outbreak was real in China absolutely true everybody knows this the fact that the WHL went out of its way to parrot Chinese talking points demonstrates our clock rotten terrible organization the WHO's become affected our media intense slammed president trump has been out there proclaiming that we have more deaths than China knowing full well that China was lying age demonstrates where their loyalties lie and it is not for the truth it is the political narrative and that is bad enough all right coming up senator Rick Scott among others now calling for repercussions for the World Health.
White Nationalism in the White House: Katie McHugh Kept Receipts
"It's no secret that members of the trump administration up to and including trump himself are parroting the views of white nationalist and white extremist groups. These organizations are tied into outright media outlets like Breitbart and others where they spread this propaganda to the masses. We're going to try something a little different today. I'll be joined by a guest. Co Host. Hossan Ahmad is an immigration attorney and anti white nationalist activist from Virginia. Hossan has been deeply involved in obtaining the archived writings of John. Panton one of the men. Behind the current white nationalist movement in America Hossan connected me to Katie McHugh. Katie is a former white nationalist. Who has renounced her views in his working. Hard to undo the damage. She did when she held them. She's a former staffer for Breitbart and other alt-right media where she was in constant correspondence with Stephen Miller at the trump white house. She's exposed those emails and the deep ties of Miller into the white nationalist movement in America voice box he's overlap between trump's message white nationalist ideology he has shown us that the majority of Americans support are sort of message. You know what yeah make. America great again fell the wall. Pick these people out. This is my country. This this all belongs to me. Trump demurred when asked whether he'd condemned supportive comments from former Ku Klux Klan. Leader David Duke. I have to look at the group I mean. I don't know what group you're talking about. You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know. The person is dead and nineteen injured after a speeding vehicle drove into a group of protesters. Your leader downtown Charlottesville very fine people on both sides so we just got a new batch of emails from Breitbart reporter Katya Q. The Southern Poverty Law Center has made public excerpts of emails sent by White House. Senior adviser. Stephen Miller was a key figure shaping immigration policy or president trump the email messages for fifty thousand sixteen. Show Miller support white nationalist website and ideologies. My name is Katie mccue. I've exposed eight far-right extremists in the past fifteen months by working with civil rights groups and legendary nonprofits. I'm very excited now. In the stage of my life to help the most vulnerable in society including people of Color immigrants those who practice Islamic faith and those who this car presidential administration opposes the mouse and seeks to punish through use of authoritarian policies. Sorry Not Sorry so katy you spent a bit of time in the alright. What is the difference if you can explain to US between the alright a white supremacy and white nationalism? What are some of the core beliefs that you're aware of as part of this movement? Well I can say I think we should begin with aristotle here. I don't want to sound pretentious but everything is on a trajectory this is also just basic calculus so one of the things. Aristotle spoke about was habit and one thing you witness with the outright because the media treated them as a truly humorous force that's just online and it's backing Donald Trump and it's young people. The fact is everything that they said. Ironically I'm making air quotes eventually became ironic so whenever people thought they were quote unquote trolling about saying the nineteenth amendment should be repealed and you had white supremacist media figure. Richard Spencer eventually meeting. No I don't believe women should have the right to vote all these memes and things you see on twitter and the way that these mobs were organized so much so that they became. It was almost like blunt force trauma when it came to harassment for media figures. They were not joking. And in the case too with someone like Stephen Miller who's one of the most powerful people in the US government especially when it comes to people who are not white. So who is Stephen Miller? And why is it so important that we understand his thinking? Stephen Miller is one of the closest advisers to president trump. He is the architect of trump's immigration policy and also has the president's ear on foreign policy matters. Stephen Miller for his entire career had anti immigrant. Leanings for some people philly with the alright because it's an amorphous group and doesn't have a membership roll with you. Know I mean. They viewed on white people and people who practice the Islamic faith as not only dangerous individuals but an existential threat to the country. And this does tie into eugenics which unfortunately America has a very dark history with eugenics Ray Science and a history which John drew from and help shape the anti immigrant agenda that has sought renewed energy from the emergence of the outright and renewed energy from the trump campaign and which we now see the full force turned against the most desperate vulnerable people in the world for punish purely because of their country of origin their ethnicity in the face that they practice kitty. You seem so articulate and passionate and human and when we paint these pictures are head of the other side we sort of create these villains. I think I WANNA be respectful for your privacy and safety but I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about how you got caught up in the movement so that we can have a better understanding as to how other people get caught up in the movement. Thank you for asking that because I think that everyone's path is different but buying could help explain some of the groundwork for other young people currently trapped in this. Who Don't quite know how to get out. The outright on the far-right are very much like a gang. You know there's a no snitching policy and I think that many many young people especially let's say trump does not win reelection in twenty twenty this year. A lot of young people are going to wonder. How do I get out of this? And how do I reconnect with other people again and have a healthy loving life full of good friendships? Good connections across backgrounds. So I will just say that I'm from Pennsylvania regular conservative town and I was raised like I think the joke is. You're born a lapsed Catholic. So that was my upbringing. Regular childhood must very nerdy was constantly reading and I was politically inclined. People always talk about two thousand four election. People were very excited about George W Bush. Because it's a Red County and two thousand eight of course with the banking crisis. Things got much more serious and of course the Iraq war still going on so I was chatting with one of my best friends. Her Dad and I was regular Republican fully supporting the Iraq war in in the war in Afghanistan and he said well. Why don't you read this person named Joe So brand? Joseph O'Brien was a former senior editor for national review. He was fired by William F Buckley because he could not control his anti-semitism. I ate him alive. Almost like a neurological virus and I'm eighteen. I had never met someone of poop practice. Jewish faith Jewish background nothing. I didn't understand anti-semitism and I was reading the Essay. That was recommended to me. Call the reluctant anarchists sing. How all government is evil in the constitution has already been so violated. We just need to go back to something. Like pre articles of confederation. Okay this is very important to understand. Is that there is a serious libertarian. Too Far right pipeline very serious and the far right of course is just steeped in. Eugenics steepen utterly discredited on Justifiable Race
The state of play in New Hampshire and beyond
"Democrats rather have a catastrophic week they began on Monday when the democratic Iowa caucuses turned into a display of shocking incompetence Democrats unlock I stay were unable to tell America who won and who came in second the only certainty was about who is the real loser that was Joe Biden who finished fourth now polls show Bernie Sanders with a comfortable lead in New Hampshire the next day tomorrow coming up next week I am sure it means that Democrats are beginning to panic Bernie Sanders is believed by many of them to be electable party veterans all used to liberal and center left candidates are now beginning to speak out against the socialist Democrat Bernie Sanders by Tuesday evening some Iowa numbers at chuckled and there was a leader but no winner Biden I repeat puts forth with impeachment still technically undecided on Tuesday night Donald Trump entered the house chamber to give his state of the union address the state of our union is stronger than ever before impeachment never came up but what the president did say appealed to the majority of Americans a healthy majority of Americans of all much of what he said will be remembered by those who pay close attention it was Nancy Pelosi who stole the show with a petulant act following trump's words of god bless you and god bless America thank you very much hearing those words a speaker of the house rose tore up the signed print a copy of the speech the president just delivered as she stood out of my sight mine the president but for all of America to see she did it for all the world to see that it was not a good look for the leader of the Democratic Party the morning after the speech I discuss not Nancy moment and much more with Georgia senator David Perdue senator I thought it was historic state of the union speech last night I thought it was historic tantrum by a petulant speaker pelo three what did you think about last night but Dr yeah I agree with you you're a student of history but I I T. I think last night was a historic speech it built on the the successes of his first three years in late at a farm plan for a vision for America the last five minutes that speech I think we're really his story but the Democrats such as close to the Democrats showed exactly why they should be in charge I mean how Petula can you be to not stand up for a child and in grammar school was gonna get a choice to go to school and how about the Tuskegee American hero they would even stand for him it was really insulting for America it was astonishing in many respects the touching Mrs you it does not like long speeches she'd never watched either George W. bush a president Obama but she's military kid so she came in to stand up for the general and for the for military families and for the widow and the son of the lost soldier I could not believe I actually cannot believe senator produ the Nancy Pelosi tore up a speech that honor to Tuskegee airmen and all those other heroes well it just shows their their don't care about the future American I want power and we see it and everything this purely partisan political process I just ran in this impeachment process speech tons about that they don't want the truth they just want power and Schumer talk about it all the time you talk about on your show I mean what they want to do with America is taken and regressed back to what has been proven to fail around the world of the last century really I got to play for you a few quotes about what was said last night this is Chris Matthews on MSNBC Democrat cut forty three Chris Matthews I think he wore I came from the like the speech tonight I think regular people well not with us see the Smalls the corny this still see it but don't like it because it's all good stuff whatever purpose it had and I look at something about I watched closely because I really respect like most Mister I was very the way she held me to win the stand when to apply it was almost a normal almost entirely the tributes to people to individual people she always felt that was the right thing to do especially the one quite out I'm right there one why don't this is van Jones on CNN another hard left person cut number forty four and and the thing about it is and I think that we we got to wake up folks do the whole bubble thing that goes on with the will he said **** nations there for all but you will get him forever that ain't necessarily so and I think what you're gonna see him do is say I you like my rhetoric the look at my results look at my record to black people now this is Jake tapper on CNN cut forty five okay we've never really seen a scholarship given which is what the president did with the with the young girl from Philadelphia we've seen the type of thing where a war hero like the Tuskegee airmen brigadier general McGee we seen that honored and it was a lovely moment to have a one hundred year old does he here's Chris Cuomo on CNN four wheeling poignant moments that came I don't know if you saw them but you should go online and look and I'm gonna talk to you about it more later on the president in that speech tonight celebrated with this country is about from one set of moments are finally Claire McCaskill on your former colleague senator produ on MSNBC cut number fifty of course the flow state tearing up the street I can argue that that maybe wasn't the best idea it you know I think America once everyone to get along and get things done but what you know when I can play a montage of left left left left left and they're all applauding the president you know we had a home run senator produ I'm shocked I mean I really am but what he did was historic I say it again I mean he did mention impeachment once he rose above that he showed great disappoint he showed vision for America but here's the difference American people we built America because everybody out there in the real world view like you and others know how to get results the political partisanship here is not focused on results and president trump is trying to break through that that's why I think he's going to do extremely well this fall at Lana is the home of some great talk radio Neal Bortz had many disagreements over the years but he's a friend we visited with President Bush in the oval one time is phone went off one of the funniest moments I've ever seen a withering look from the president at Neil Sean Hannity had a lot of great years in Atlanta you know Rush Limbaugh personally I say he built the mall in which the rest of us live in I hope you stood in a plot in one rush got that last night I couldn't see last night but it was moving it was emotional every family in America that struggles with cancer saluted him what did you think of that moment well I had dinner with him a few weeks ago in Florida and I was in what would this be to that was a total surprise last night to me I think that homeowners a great American hero he did go out first and blaze a trail to tell the truth and that's what you and many others are doing now and that's what's gonna win today just look at the numbers of conservative talk radio out there and their numbers are going up in the liberal left numbers are going down so I mean I think the middle part of America is leading and showing how California New York Illinois have totally failed their governance and now they want to export that to the federal government I think most people in America see what trump is doing and they certainly recognizes result this present you said on the top he's done more for the Arab American community and in America any other president since Lincoln I think Britt slough editor of the National Review discuss the state of the union while on Chicago's morning answer with Salem stand problem Amy Jacobson that will settle somewhere then people are safe and she's the woman of the hour and she just couldn't find any truth than from say the union address that's why if you threw a tantrum yeah well the whole thing about Nancy Pelosi she's popular supposedly this calm cool calculating presence to his genius is getting under trump skin and she showed her deep irritation last night does incredibly test headed yesterday I think trump said of shook her hand at the beginning I like grace notes but they're ripping up the the speech yeah he should have known this moment was gonna come when she started to impeach shop in the first place that eventually he'd be acquitted or be near quit all and he'd be this majestic setting and she'd have to sit by back there like a prop and behave herself and she and she couldn't handle it they were routine they were rooting against America I mean when they talked about alone unemployment numbers for African Americans and minorities why not stand up and clap for that because they they can't abide anything this president says even when it's things that normally everyone would welcome and that's one thing I think it's it's really notable about the speech the ratio of outrage it caused among the opposition you know on Twitter on cable TV and in the hall and the way most people receive it I think it's a vast you know because I'm sitting there is conservative once the limit limit government event basketball on those sort of things there's almost nothing for me is a very center of speech right planting trees going to Mars you know the research to support extremely premature babies and that was a really moving moment I'm among many from the gallery and so most people that the second strike in this on reasonable as striking as entirely reasonable or welcome so they can deal why did the speaker house can happen rip up the speech this is what we have one listener described trump this way after the St unit rasta Nancy pollicis little snack and I thought this was pretty good he he's like human so the impact the fall he he brings out in people who they truly are in sort of a remarkable way they can't even help themselves and as you're describing Nancy Pelosi this cool calm collected this passionate you know Jeff feel general and but then he throws a temper tantrum and then she doubles down on explaining the temper tantrum in a way that portrayed her as venal and petty in about her where you just said the president give a speech about you in this country and its future and that's not a pretty good contra that's not a very good contrast for the Democrats yeah and it just when when people try and think they're reacting to trump intro and a champion way

Are the Democrats ready for Bernie Sanders to get the 2020 presidential nomination?
"The news in the Senate well is that the Democrats are on repeat repeat repeat so we're going to move past that waiting for Mr step alone Mister Sekulow and the team from the White House to win our attention with succinct remarks about the foolishness of this whole exercise that is draining the nation's attention at the same time it is slowing the business at hand of reelecting the president of the United States I don't want to go to something that's even more surprising the election cycle to me yesterday as I approached caring for the show the CNN poll national Posada showing that Bernie Sanders had gone in the lead over Joe Biden the national Paul and then I today was in correspondence with our colleague John fund of the National Review online and he sent me a granite state poll from New Hampshire Bernie Sanders is going to lead by twelve points in New Hampshire and then I saw the Iowa poll of these last days showing the Bernie Sanders was also outpacing Joe Biden and Liz before in Iowa the thinking is that Bernie Sanders is drawing from the disappointing Elizabeth Warren supporters but this is the question to you is the best are the Democrats really ready really ready for Bernie Sanders at the top of their nomination process are they ready to deal with what he represents good evening to you ASAP good evening John I put it another way that they're ready to sabotage him and they're doing so right now how is the the the the halt Mike incident with between Bernie and Elizabeth Warren at the CNN debate took several days facts the B. leaks tool to be used in the media what what what was the pulley that what what was the accidental pools for several days and then you have the long interview with Hillary Clinton where she goes off to him and this falling on top of the private discussion the the heart to credit discussion in which we're supposed to believe that an up and socialist the honeymoon in the Soviet Union is Bernie Saunders did flat out told Elizabeth Warren the woman combi to present United States what he knew full well he'd probably be running against of the the Democrat establishment on it's clear in the in the last few days has set its sights on Bernie Saunders three years ago it was done with super delegates it was done with the D. and the using every tool in the book to rob him of the nomination I'm not saying this out of any sympathy to them on reconstituted socialist we're talking about here but he he is not part of the the classic Democrat establishment and that's why the knives already out the the the odds of March is occurring as we see it with regard to Bernie Saunders because the Democrat establishment cannot abide the thought that this man could end up at the top of the ticket history says that a stop fill in the blank movement always results in that person getting a hand getting the nomination right now the anybody but fill in the blank Bernie MO is probably contributing to those numbers that I gave you in the polling is gaining attention in addition to the fact Elizabeth Warren is fading so let us entertain the unimaginable is the trump campaign ready to run against Bernie Sanders the populist is is there is there any stone we need to turn over and look at closely before we enter into that fantastic dual I was also the reason I've been with my colleagues in California will places but two thousand the conservative patriots came to the event it was Dennis Prager myself mark to be in and one of the questions from the audience was which one of the candidates are you worried about which one of the candidates on the left a gives you you know most sleepless nights when it comes to a a competition with food with the incumbent and mark was lost the question that is with us the question and I said it doesn't matter modern politics is about celebrity it's about charisma individuals like Bloomberg Macy's you can purchase it but we know that you cannot buy love all popularity but John it really I'm I'm completely sincere about this it doesn't matter who they choose even if Oprah runs our fifth absurd conspiracy theory that Michelle Obama the love it's it's crazy job why because of the the economic results that is your pot full when you create we've added eleven trillion dollars to the US economy with when the stock market you can't keep up with the breaking records on the stock market and when you see the unemployment figures the likes of which we haven't seen since nineteen sixty nine it really means that it doesn't matter who gets the nomination just on pocket books to load Donald Trump should all other things being equal stroll back into the White House and yet Sam what we see in the polling is that Bernie Sanders is going to do very well in the first two votes that the Iowa caucus in New Hampshire we have reason to believe he'll do well in Nevada as well just reason to believe I haven't seen any recent polls bodies it is leading nationally in some fashion what are the Democrats who support Bernie Sanders telling us that they don't care about the White House that they don't care about the party that they don't care about down ticket is that what they say what what the Democrats and I'm trying to think yeah I'm trying to do what we were supposed to do is have you were trained in military intelligence you trying to get into the mind of the follow but at least as a coach out of the Cold War the pho was rational drawn when we collected the intelligence and read the read the the the the publications all of all of the enemy we could extrapolate to some kind of rational objective in the in the application of ways and means to that executive but with when we're talking about individuals who truly believe that after forty countries for their countries have tried socialism since the manifesto was written by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels and every single one of those countries has failed I I have no rational explanation for what they see it's it's really indoctrination from the nineteen seventies on was that they always have you and I will watch this story I mean that's our job will watch this story over the next a number of weeks to the February third what is it is less than two weeks to remember third will watch a story and see whether it is this suicide watch for the Democratic Party or is there some scheme here that so clever it's like the ability to cheat at monopoly you can't catch them have it all right we'll see
Iran protests: Who are the opposition in the country?
"The latest protests in Iran over the Iranian military's unintentional downing of Ukrainian jetliner are different from past ask protests over rigged elections rising gas prices and what Americans liked to call voter suppression this time. The protests cover a much wider area of the country this this time protesters did not chant death to America or death to Israel. This anger was directed at the theocratic regimes handling of the missile strike. This time a president president of the United States tweeted his support for the protesters at English and Farsi and warned the world is watching Democrats. Were nearly silent about the protests even though Oh they once boldly voiced opposition to totalitarian regimes interviewed Sunday on. ABC's This Week House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi appeared to minimize the significance insult demonstrations host George Stephanopoulos asked her if she supported the demonstrations and whether it would be good for the regime to collapse. The protesters are are. I pro testing as I understand this brand of protesters about the fact that plane went down and many students were on that plane and these are largely students in the street. Come again the far left which increasingly dominates the Democratic Party predictably took a rand side against their own country. Actress rose McGowan tweeted. Dear Iran the USA has disrespected your country or flag. People fifty two percent of US humbly apologize is we want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us. And then she ended with a Hashtag Solo Money Aig. SHUTT- responded to McGowan and many others on the far left in National Review magazine. He wrote quote while it may be tempting to dismiss McGowan's attempts attempts at whit her line of reasoning however faulty is echoed by nearly all the Democrats on the campaign trail and by virtually every Middle East specialist in the media and in academia unquote. Now why aren't the Democratic presidential candidates asked if they share such views. Perhaps it's because those asking the questions don't want to do anything thing that would harm the chances of one of the Democrat presidential candidates beating president trump in the November election. Does that sound too harsh. We'll consider that ninety. Two percent set of media coverage of the president has been negative. According to a study by the media research center could the protests in Iran. Follow the pattern of other freedom movements like solidarity in in Poland or demonstrations that led to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union or could they end a stalemate with increasingly brutal repression as as in Venezuela. It's too early to say but we should at least expect people who enjoy the blessings of liberty including the right to say very foolish things to support the efforts of others who want to free themselves from totalitarian oppression
The evolving US justification for killing Iran's top general
"We begin with a pressing issue in the debate circuits in the presidential campaigns on television about the targeted killing of so the money the head of the snake because I'm so the money the leader of the opcodes for is a bad actor for at least a decade leading attacks on Americans and thousands of Iraqis and a map and Syrians and Iranians and just generally it a threat to civilization Andy McCarthy has a column at the National Review online turning over and over this debate is turning on the word eminence and they're very good evening to you at some point you become exhausted with these arguments that still amante and his death are not necessarily the best thing for the United States you become exhausted within it said what matter in minutes anyway the man was a bad actor and we're he's better off trading stories with Hades Danny is on walking on the planet earth how did we get wrapped up in in minutes and a good evening to you good evening John well I I think it's the never ending attempt to try to judicial lies warfare which we see in in various different iterations over time from anti war people and that we should all be anti war and in the sensible sense but I'm I'm talking about the the the sort of standard position which is often mutates into an anti American position under the laws of war it doesn't matter if an attack is imminent or not if you're dealing with a combatant commander under circumstances where a factor so an enemy of the United States is attacking the United States or it's disabilities throughout the world it's been the law of nations since before there was a United States that you have a right to self defense if you need a citation to legal authority as some people do the the price cases going back to the civil war hold the proposition that when there is a threat to the United States so where war is being prosecuted against the United States and there are invasions and attacks the president not only has the authority the president has the obligation to take whatever action is necessary to repel the frat so we're talking about the circumstance here where you have a regime that for forty years has not just rhetorically but in fact in Sittard itself at war with the United States has conducted numerous attacks has been the backbone of jihadist networks that engage in anti American terrorism in that region and globally and that has killed hundreds of Americans including eleven attacks in just the last few weeks so it seems pretty obvious to me that he was a righteous target and the reason I I took the time to write the column is it seems to me that in the mid nineteen nineties when we were reacting to the inadequacies of our criminal law in connection with terrorism the the impulse of the two parties was to pull together and we write our terrorism laws so that you didn't have to quibble over whether plots against the United States had reached an imminent stage the whole idea of all law was to prevent attacks are getting to an eminent stage because that's when they can careen out of control and people get killed so we changed our law so that we could not only snuff terrorist plots out in their infancy but actually prevent terrorist organizations and their state sponsors from from obtaining assets and personnel and weaponry and funds and and my life so it's just a remarkable transfer to a transformation in a quarter century that we go from the sensible view that we have to do everything we can to stop terrorist attacks from happening to this point in our crazy time where we have the worst terrorist on the planet who's in the throes of conducting anti American attacks and the first for whatever reason the president's opposition has decided that this is something that they want to plant their flag on in terms of opposition status quiet isn't quite the case what you're seeing on the left is really a political talking points it isn't legal is in policy it's just a partisan gain because when you think about it the argument about the imminent to Mr bachelor wrapped his are trying to say the Iran deal was working a ran was behaving and that even though the terrorism was not part of that agreement that stole money and the rest of them were not posing an imminent threat to the United States but that's completely and utterly all so when they come across using the word imminent they're actually denying the reality of what soul money in that regime were doing our yeah they all right there were a lot of an attack in November and December on American bases in and around Baghdad and the American embassy in Baghdad was a flame just about two days before the the operation on salon money if I remember in the the timeline correctly so you know the idea that this guy wasn't orchestrating attacks and that we didn't have every reason to believe that there would be more whether they were going to be imminent or not is this just
"national review" Discussed on WDRC
"Editor at National Review and the author most recently of give me liberty a history of America is exceptional idea let me ask you since you've written about liberty and where it's where we're deriving it from words come from in the documents behind it and he's thirteen essential documents can we keep our liberties here if we don't see the same kinds of liberty start to evolve somewhere else and I I guess maybe I'm having a tough time for me the question in other words the as that beacon of liberty as the shining city on the hill that Reagan talked about should America be pushing for other entities Hong Kong would be a good little example of a a paid a smaller battled World War two was a big battle in defense of liberty but you know America goes for different periods of being isolationists and then being more more looking to the rest of the world so many politicians are saying that we won't be engaged in nation building okay I understand the thought behind that but if we let the rest of the world go the direction some people would like to take it Putin's Russia the Middle East real law the Chinese that we've already talked about can we expect to preserve liberty at home and as you said before in the previous segment is segment a a rapidly shrinking planet because of technology or should we be pushing to try to expand these ideas and not just support them when they occur like the the protests in Hong Kong but say we should a two part of our maybe the legacy of having these unique liberties on the planet to say let's see how much we can push that other countries of for the same liberties or should we simply say we've got him here and if you decide on your own to get on there that's that's good will will sign off on that but otherwise we're not going to push the idea hard does that make sense well I've got as you said thirteen episodes in this Balkan three of them involve foreign affairs the first was the Monroe doctrine that's eighteen twenty three of the second one I used was Roosevelt's fireside chat nineteen forty about the America being the great arsenal of democracy and the third in the last episode in the book is is Reagan's speech at the Berlin Wall urging Gorbachev to tear it down nineteen eighty seven at one point I try to make about the is that these were not none of the more casual one office they were all the results of more thought and planning ahead of time Roosevelt didn't just wake up some morning in December nineteen forty and and say Hey the world situation looks pretty Graham I better I better talk to the American people about it on the radio he had been thinking about Germany and its threat for years he had put at the head of the army and the navy new young officers admiral Harold stark and general George Marshall and told them to plan for a world in which we would be threatened by **** Germany he had put him his cabinet to Republicans Henry Stimpson and Anne Frank Knox Stimpson at work for for Herbert Hoover the man Roosevelt beat it the first time he ran for president and knocks had been the running mate of alf Landon the man he brought against and his second election for president so he reached across the aisle to to bipartisan enemies who agreed with him on the world scene so you you have to think ahead you have to plan ahead similarly with Reagan speaking at the Berlin Wall nineteen eighty seven he had been thinking of the Soviet threat for years after he lost his race for the Republican nomination to Gerald Ford in nineteen seventy six he had a meeting the following year with Richard Allen who was a foreign policy guy who wanted to work for Reagan snacks campaign and Reagan said to him here's my view of the Cold War it's it's simple some would say it's simple minded if we win and they may lose what do you think about that so in he's saying that the very reaganesque sort of jokey way but he had been thinking about this for years and planning at and so when he's the the this is a speech that he gives in Berlin in nineteen eighty seven is not a one shot it's part of a long term strategy so for for America to foster liberty in the world which I think it should it has to be it has to be planned we have to pick our battles we have to make sure were picking battles that were likely to win it's more than just a matter of rhetoric it's something that that requires constant patient thought and planning I guess it just again on this because I can remember no the moment I was watching these the protests in the streets of Tehran during the Obama administration thinking Mister president I mean I I didn't vote for Obama didn't particularly care for his policies or or his choices but but I thought stand up and and and encourage these young people yeah and that's not necessarily a battle you have to win but it's it's show them just give the use the bully pulpit and and he didn't do it and I thought what it what a great disappointment out and out maybe I may be looking into it was tied to it his mind so that was the you know perhaps not set in the direction of doing that you know you you you say a thing like that you encourage people if you've been thinking of it ahead of time if and if you're also prepared to give some help at some level in some way you know if you don't if you're if you're not in that situation you know then you have a choice between saying the right thing and doing nothing or saying and doing or or opening your mouth and and removing all doubt about whether or not you're an idiot I I I understand anything to leave my my audience with in terms of preserving these great liberties that we enjoy today I wrote this book to inspire people I want them to look back at our past to see how these games for liberty were made it's a a story of some famous people people we've all heard of it's also a story of people we've never heard about ordinary people who stood up who signed something who put their reputations in some cases their lives on the line and we can be inspired by their example and I hope we'll do it ourselves are you concerned we are I think today the longest running democracy or longer surviving democracy in the world I may be misstating that but I I think that's the case do you see us going another quarter of a millennium.

Does the whistleblower have the right to remain confidential?
"The former assistant United States Attorney in the writer for the National Review and the fox news specialist discussed with the blower while on Chicago's morning answer with van prop and Amy Jacobson again on Adam Schiff refusal to release transcripts of the behind closed doors customer we can still have this sort of running a look a complaint against ship which is released these transcripts a turn these transcripts around so that they can be included in the discussion and real time not to we're going to release his friend we're going to have this testimony that we're gonna decide if this is somebody that's helpful to the case it's a call then I'll decide if the transcript will be released released a transcript it doesn't take long to type this thing up yeah they were absolutely right about that they should have the transcripts available to them when they are examining the other witnesses because the information now you know the way the way this would work if the federal rules of evidence apply which they don't in a hearing like this would be that you can't impeach a witness with another witness's statement but you can use the information that you get from other witnesses as a good faith basis to challenge the testimony of other witnesses the problem that the Democrats have had from the beginning here and I think the problem but the public will have with the the process here is that it's not fair ship has taken to himself the ability to pick and choose what information gets put out the ability to pick and choose what witnesses are allowed to testify nobody thinks he is an honest broker he's a he's a political partisan hardball operatives and if I were the Republicans I would suggest that they have to play the hand they're dealt and they you know he can block them from calling witnesses I would make him the focus of the hearing because he is the focus of a hearing sitting there in the middle he's the most imposing consistent figure in this whole process so why would keep bringing it back to him that he's been utterly unfair and that he's running essentially a kangaroo proceed yeah I mean you Jennifer Williams spent staffer she was you know depose on Saturday I would like to have her testimony be public but what about the whistle blower do you think he should be on mass than we should have a public you know hearing for him yes okay first of all and it it should be done before Ben and testifies the game that the Democrats applying is they apparently you need to see this and then then the transcript of the closed door testimony when they start to ask about the whistle blower and whether he lied stuff to the what's the blower and whether he's in cahoots with the whistle blower ship jump sand and cuts it off on the on the ground that they're trying to reveal the whistle blower he's got a legal right to remain confidential he does not have a legal right to remain confidential first of all the whistleblower statute that they're talking about does not apply to this guy because this is we're not talking about intelligence activities this is the president dealing in foreign policy with a head of state so the statue doesn't even apply to a but even if it did it only imposes a confidentiality requirements on the inspector general of the intelligence committee or community and even with respect to the inspector general confidentiality can be pierced if he thinks under the circumstances it's unavoidable that the guy will become public or and this is very important if the matter if there was any way the matter was likely to be referred to a a court for trial or to the justice department for potential prosecution what that underscores is people's desire to be confidential it's something that we defer to only so far and no further once you're in a position where your information is relevant to an important proceeding like the judicial trial or I would argue like an impeachment proceeding you will lose your interest in being confidential has to take a backseat to the public's interest and the proceedings interest in getting at the truth
Ignore the hype — this is not an impeachment inquiry
"New Developments arise in the connection between the trump whistleblower and house intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff the State Department inspector general opens another mess and president from goes off in front of the head head of Finland. I'm Ben Shapiro. This is the Ben Shapiro show. I mean I do have to say you have to feel a little bit bad for the foreign leaders who sit there while president trump goes because man when president trump does these press conferences and goes off on the press and then goes off on the Democrats Democrats and you are like the president of Finland the Prime Minister of inland and you're sitting there looking like you just cannot wait to get out and Jim from the office. It's pretty it's pretty spectacular. Alerts stuff well a lot breaking in the news. I I think that it's important to make a note that Andrew McCarthy makes today over at the hill he of course is illegal correspondent for National Review and he gives them important Gordon information about the background of this whole impeachment inquiry and that is that so far it is basically Kabuki theatre meaning. It's not an official impeachment inquiry for all the talk about impeachment inquiry and we're supposed to put all of our focus into impeachment. Nothing has actually fundamentally changed. Here's what Andy McCarthy writes today. He says there is no impeachment pitchman inquiry. There are no subpoenas. You're not to be faulted if you think a formal inquest is underway and the legal process has been issued the misimpressions completely understandable if you've been taking in media coverage in in particular reporting on a Haughty September twenty seven th letter from House Democrats presuming to direct Secretary of State Mike pompeo on pain of citation for obstruction to cooperate in their demands to should oppose State Department officials and review various records. The letter is signed by not one but three committee chairman. Remember your elementary math. Oh Zero is still zero even when multiplied by three what what is portrayed as an impeachment inquiry is actually just a made for cable TV political soap opera. The House of Representatives is not conducting formal impeachment inquiry to the contrary Sandy McCarthy Congressional Democrats are conducting the twenty political campaign. The House has not voted as a body to authorize an impeachment inquiry while we have here are partisan theatrics preceding under the Ipse Dixit of Speaker Nancy Pelosi raises the profile but not the legitimacy of the same impeachment inquiry and they're no subpoenas a secretary pompeo observed in his fittingly tart heart response on Tuesday what the committee chairman issue was merely a letter. It's huffing and puffing. Not withstanding the letter is nothing more than an informal request for voluntary cooperation. Legally it has no compulsive the power if anything it is rife with legal deficiencies and McCarthy is pointing out here that all the talk of impeachment inquiry Democrats have actually utilized the power that they have in Congress in order to subpoena members of the executive branch why will because then get litigated in the courts because that's the way this stuff works you subpoena somebody in the White House. The White House has no and then it ends up in court and the court. Hashes it out but that leads to delay instead what the Democrats are doing is they are issuing fake subpoenas basically request for people to show up. If the White House says hold up a second they then accused the White House of obstruction. This appears to be manufactured. I mentioned this yesterday. The Democrats are now using a wide variety of theories in order to justify their push for impeachment as it turns out that the quid pro quo arrangement supposedly evident from the trump Ukrainian presidents Lewinsky's phone call falls apart as it turns out that allegation doesn't make any sense in the absence of any information that Ukrainian leadership believed that the president was withholding military aid as that becomes clear the Democrats are now shifting the narrative on impeachment. Maybe the impeachment is not about pro after all. Maybe it's about President Trump mouthing off. Maybe it's about President trump yelling at the whistle blower. Maybe it's about obstruction of justice well. What if if the Democrats basically boxed themselves in here what of Nancy Pelosi went off half cocked because she believed that it was important to get her base on board because she couldn't hold them back any longer because Nancy Pelosi isn't actually in control of this process. Remember earlier this year. Nancy Pelosi tried to take out the squad earlier this year. Nancy Pelosi tried to marginalize the radicals in her base and president trump basically prohibited her from doing that by attacking the radicals in her pace forcing her to rally around them well that meant the Nancy Pelosi is now subject to their whims and that means ironically the president trump unifying Nancy Pelosi with the radicals in her base led to this fo impeachment inquiry was anti McCarthy writes standing committees. He's do have subpoena power so why not use it well because subpoenas get litigated in court when the people or agencies on the receiving end object. Democrats want to have an impeachment show inquiry on on television they don't want to defend its Bona Fides in court and they certainly don't want to defend their letter threatening obstruction the Democrats media grabs note the chairman's admonition that any failure by pompeo Oh to comply shall quote constitute evidence of obstruction of the houses impeachment inquiry what a Crock as McCarthy points out in criminal proceedings prosecutors constantly demand information and defense presumptively resists and then ends up in court he says Congressional Democrats know all of this. Many of them are lawyers. They're issuing partisan letters. That pose was legally offensive threats rather than subpoenas because this is a show not impeachment inquiry subpoenas that don't require chest-beating obstruction. Everyone knows their compulsory but everyone also knows. They may be held up in court so what this really looks like. Overall is the Democrats basically trying to drum up something something upon which they can get trump in the public doc mind and that became an eminently clear when it became clear that the whistle blower in this particular case was probably coordinated with Adam Shifts office before the whistleblower complaint was even elevated to the level of the Inspector General of the intelligence community.

Biden versus Sanders: Top 2020 contenders snipe over healthcare policy
"Writing Center panel as always I'm your center. I'm joined by rich lowry editor of National Review on the right and on the left lane all into the Washington Post. Hello Hi suggestion who and what have you been watching this week. I've been watching a fight that would have gotten a lot more attention had this what's going on and that is the squabble that broke out this week and the Democratic Party about Bernie Sanders Medicare for all and Joe Biden's own healthcare reform package Biden on Monday announced a healthcare reform package that builds on the A._C._A.. It would offer a public option. Finally it would allow for people in the states who did not take the Medicaid expansion to get in on the public option and it would very much as I said build on the affordable care act unfortunately biden as part of this also launched a full frontal attack on the Medicare for all proposal that sanders is <hes> is promoting and he did it with some <hes> less than truthful things he claimed that it would make it harder for people with cancer to get treatment meant. He said that it would medicare would go away basically sanders needless to say did not take this on the chin. He fought back and fought back hard. He accused Biden of trump like lies. He put up a quiz on his sight saying who said it Biden or Republican with bashes about Medicare for all and it turned into quite the nasty squabble so rich Biden said a number of things here that if Biden is not the Democratic nominee his comments may end up in some attack ads from Republicans Biden basically saying that Medicare for all replaces the existing Medicare program you have for seniors seniors wouldn't have what they have right now it would kick well over one hundred million Americans off of private health insurance plans many of whom like those those plans but I want to talk for a second scenario where Biden

Notre Dame, Notre Dame Cathedral And Paris discussed on 790 KABC Programming
"Begin with the big news out of France. The burning of the Notre Dame cathedral. Their lead. The outer structure was indeed saved according to French fire services Sky News says flames broke out at the twelfth century building on Monday evening, quickly devastating this fire and roof and sending plumes of smoke into the sky. One fire was serious firefighter was seriously injured local media say police were treating the blaze as an accident. French president Emmanuel Macron's and he was so sad tonight to see this part of us all burn declared, a national emergency speaking from the scene in Paris express, sympathy with Catholics around the world following the terrible tragedy. But added that the worst had been avoided, and then he vowed to launch an international fundraising campaign, for instance, minister originally warned that the four hundred firefighters scrambled to the scene would not be enough to save the cathedral. But a junior minister from the department later said they were more optimistic that the cathedral itself could be spared. A French firefighter official confirmed that Notre Dame structure and two towers had indeed been saved from total destruction Prime Minister Theresa may said her thoughts with the people of France tonight. And with the emergency services are fighting the terrible blades, the video of it was just. Astonishing and shocking the area where the spire once was was still burning with sparks falling from the cathedral vaulted ceiling as of Monday night, people outside were singing hymns and gasping as they watch much of the much of the cathedral burned to the ground. The Paris mayor and had although urged the public to respect the security perimeter around the cathedral while firefighters tackled. The terrible blaze added that the areas close to the scene were evacuated. Rich Lowry over at national review has a good review about what exactly Notre dominant means. Does Notre Dame stands for so many qualities that we now lack patients and staying power the cultivation of beauty a deep religious faith, the cultural confidence and ambition to build a timeless monument of our civilization that the collapse of inspire is almost too much to bear the great novelist. Victor Hugo who did so much provide interest in the cathedral when it was in disrepair in the nineteen th century wrote. How quote every surface every stone of this. Venerable pile is a page of the history, not only of the country, but of science and art work of generations completed across three centuries in triumph over considerable arc. Conceptual and logistical challenges at arose at the original site of a pagan temple thousands of tons of stone has to be transported from outside Paris, one ox-cart or barge at a time. So cheated soaring height and hold up at ceiling and walls relied on the architectural innovations of the rib vaults and the flying buttress France, built eighty cathedrals in five hundred large churches across this period says rich lower there's only one at Notre Dame of Paris gothic jewel who's towers prior. To the advent of the Eiffel tower the tallest structure in the city. It is or one hates to think was torn by what are culturally significant artifacts in their own, right. The statutory meant to illustrate the story of the bible and to all worshippers couldn't read the stained glass windows, that took ingenuity to embed in stone, walls and are themselves are tick Marvel's the Oregon with more than eight thousand pipes the bells with their names, including the largest masterpiece. Emmanuel dating back to the fifteenth century and recast in sixteen eighty one not to mention the religious relics. That means so much to the Catholic faithful it has been the of countless processions in services to petition and thank God on behalf of the French nation. It is where less is. Marriages and funerals occurred or Napoleon crowned himself emperor or Charles de Gaulle attended a mass to celebrate the liberation of Paris in nineteen forty four riflefire echoing outside it's revived the rampages of iconoclastic huge knots in the sixteenth century the depredation of radicals during the French revolution into the eighteenth century. They transformed it into a friend to the cult of reason used it. As a warehouse in wanted to melt down the bells and incidental damage during two world wars in the twentieth century all the while at accumulated layers in history. And meaning it's great advocate Hugo author of the famous Hunchback of Notre Dame wrote of how the greatest productions of architecture are not so much work of individuals as a community. I rather the offspring of a nation's labor than the outcome of individual genius that a positive a whole people the heaped up treasurer of centuries, the residual left by successive evaporation of human society in a word a species of formations each wave of time leaves it's coating of Luhya alluvial each race deposits layers on the monuments, each individual contribute to stone to it. And that of course is exactly right is amazing at tweeted something out that I thought frankly was. Was really uncontroversial. I tweeted out that Notre Dom was a was a totem to western civilization and of western civilization, and people that very upset with this particularly a lot of folks on the left were very upset with this. I tweeted out if we wish to uphold the beauty and profundity of the Notre Dame cathedral means reefa millions ourselves with the philosophy and religious principles that built it means reefa. Millions ref- Amelia rising ourselves with the precepts of Catholicism with western history with what Catholicism was without contributed to the west. And all this stuff seems deeply important to me this became very controversial lot of folks on the left were very upset with me for suggesting this. They said why can't we just appreciate it just as a piece of art? You can appreciate it. However you want, but if you want to know why so many people in the west were deeply affected by the burning of Notre Dom. It wasn't just because it was icon. Ick is because Notre Dame holds deeper meaning because it is a totem of a chain of history that culminates in the modern west. They can see the sort of sort of anodyne version of mourning for the cathedral from Ilhan, mar she tweeted out art and architecture have unique ability to help us connect across our differences and bring people together and important ways. Thinking of the people of Paris in praying for every first responder trying to save this wonder. Again, it's fine to look at Notre Dame is just art and architecture, but it has deeper resonance than that. And that was the point that I was making is that the residents of Notre nam is about the faith that inspired. Notre and listen, this is coming from a Jew this coming for an orthodox Jew house. So important to remember then note for Dom is again a historical monument to the chain of history of which we are apart and Ronin entire book about this. My book the right side of history talks about this chain of history Judeo Christian history of the west and how Judaism and Christianity combined with Greek reason in play in intention created the world in which we live. I want to read a section from the talking about the period during which Notre Dame was built Notre Dame. Of course was built during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Took a couple of centuries to complete which in and of itself. Is an amazing testament to the human mind ends of the power of the eternal to inspire the human mind. Because after all why plant the tree if you're not going to get to sit in its shade. Why build a building if you know that you're not gonna get completed because our task is not to complete the building. Our task is to join in the building of that structure in the first place. Here's what I talk about in my book with regard to this period in western history. From the fall of Rome through the twelfth century. Christianity would spread from its base in the Italian peninsula in the British Isles, France, Germany, and eventually the Nordic countries as well. Well, understand had posited. A great divide between the city of God. In the city of van. The Catholic church was quite active in the city of man, the church receive tithes from Christians the Continente over had its own ecclesiastical courts by the tenth century, the church was the single largest landowner in western Europe kings found their legitimacy through the conduit of the church and battles with the church to expand their own power. Holy Roman Emperor. Henry the fourth walk barefoot in the snow earn back the approval of pope, Gregory the seventh and within seconds of England eleven thirty three to eleven eighty nine had himself flogged in order to win back. The. Approval of his Christian population. After accidents ordering the death of archbishop Thomas Becket popular history maintains that this period represents the dark ages, but that's simply inaccurate progress. Continued as Christianity spread the monastic system centralized learning in monasteries where priests nuns devoted themselves with Sediq pursuit of divine understanding in educational terms this devotion revolved around scripture. The Benedictine monks. For example, lived under the rules created by Saint Benedictine for eighty two five forty seven a set of orders regarding the hierarchy of monasteries the behavior by which to abide and the requirements of work the arts thrived in the monastic system manuscripts were preserved by monks devoted to writing new copies and beautifying them in the monastic system. The liberal arts taught by the Greeks and the Romans as championed by Cicero and Seneca among others survived albeit in Spiritualized form gusted himself, despite his distaste for paganism suggested that the liberal arts education could be hijacked for service to God. I'll Guston likened such cultural appropriation to the Jews taking gold during the biblical exodus. These liberal arts were categorized by the philosopher both into the famous Quadra, verion music, arithmetic, geometry, and astronomy and trivia, grammar rhetoric and logic. Meanwhile, the middle ages saw technological revolution. In agriculture, the rise of commerce institution of new forms of art ranging from polyphonic music to gothic architecture. Notre Dame would be a perfect example of gothic architecture. It also saw new developments in the art of war with technology developments that would allow the west to defeat its enemies in the course of coming centuries while many history historians tout the power of Islamic civilization during this time period and Islam civilization did thrive on the Arabian peninsula, particularly when his Llamas civilization came up against western civilization. At the battle of tours Islamic forces were soundly defeated by the eighth century. Christian leaders were crusading against enslavement, except notably for the enslavement of Muslim war. Captives monasteries were engaging in proto capitalism as well. Furthermore, the Catholic church was responsible for learning and teaching virtually all literacy sprang from honest, Aries still the modern world could not have been created. Under these circumstances. But I write my book faith provided individual moral purpose faith provided collective moral purpose, but while individual capacity was bolstered by the doctrinal belief in free will and the value of work reason had been made secondary to faith. Well, collective capacity was bolstered by the presence of a strong social fabric. The all encompassing. Power of the Catholic church and the rule of monarchs that that individual choice. It was heavily circumscribed even education had been radically reoriented toward the church ultra knowledge lay in the bible. The liberal arts were only useful so far as they bolstered the biblical story for science and democracy. Take hold in the west reason would have to be elevated once more

"Jimgeraghty quote from national review. The more time I spent covering politics, the more I'm convinced that a significant chunk. A grassroots political activists are not really arguing about politics at all. These people are actually struggling with personal psychological issues and projecting them under the world of politics. Bingo, I've been searching for that description for years. I have no problem admitting that I was unable to put this together. It's one of the rare moments. I was unable to this is exactly right. We're dealing with people who have suffered some kind of psychological disorder. They've turned to politics for the solution. Or the revenge is actually what they're looking for. And they don't just want revenge against whoever did whatever to them. They are now demanding that every Representative of the group that the individual that did something to be made to pay a price for it. It's what the. This this. Well, the metoo movement in large part was never bipartisan. It was thought to be said to be. But it never was an even if it if. Okay, even if it was it's been co opted by the democrat party look at look at the Occupy Wall street movement. Look at black lives matter, I t take any left wing group that you want. It's made up of people who for some reason think they have been unjustly mistreated by somebody and instead of dealing with that in their lives, they enter politics, and they demand that the democrat party take up their cause in the democrat party willingly has the democrat party has become the party of all of these disparate constituency groups with their singular causes because the democrat party realizes that they can combine all of these things into a singular assault on the concept of America that America is responsible for what happened is people. That capitalism is responsible that the power structure that the founding is responsible. And so people with a logical disorders are being granted the status of normalcy. And then the big donors come along and underwrite them and fund their efforts, and they become political movements. And then they become victims. And that of course, allows them to blame everybody for what has gone wrong in their lives. And then they demand reciprocity or revenge, or what have you, and I can tend to you that most people our side have no idea how to deal with this. No idea whatsoever. So we end up in debates about whether. Boys want to pretend to be girls. So they can go and girls bathrooms. And becomes legitimate. That's sick in in many not that specifically, but just the whole concept of what is happening here, and it is a violent bullying intimidating movement that has been constructed to push all of these disparate various agendas. And the target is America. The target is America as founded the target is American capitalism. And so when our caller says that Cavanaugh is simply a stand in for men who have abused every woman out there. He's right. Ballsy Ford will end up being supported by other women who've been abused. Whether she's telling the truth or not, it doesn't matter because it did happen to them these women, we know that are out there watching this. It did happen to them. And by God somebody's gonna pay for it in this case will be cavenaugh. That's how they're going to be heard rather than just deal with the specific incident that happened to them. It's the same thing. I think with black lives matter or the NFL players kneeling for the anthem. All cops are bad. Every white cop is every black convict is innocent. An every instance here points to the country at large as being responsible in unfairness in bias in discrimination. It racism all of this. The democrat party is the organizing party the collection agency for all of these complaints democrat party's happy to make victims out of anybody who wants to be one and democrat party is happy to promise these people that they'll fix it. And they never do. They never the rage and the anger never ends. It only gets worse because the Democrats don't fix anything. And finally, it doesn't even depend on being fixed. It just means. Somebody's gotta pay in this case capital. He's gonna pay whether he did it or not. Now, Sarah Sanders White House press briefing is going on she'd just lay the end of the press. And she said exactly what I said, if I don't mind saying, so she said Trump didn't mock anybody last night, he simply recited the facts. And he said all of this can be laid at the feet of the Democrats. They're to blame for this. None of this needed have happened in public. They had ballsy Ford's Email or letter way back in July. They could have done everything that's been done to investigate her claim off record behind the scenes, nobody knowing about it. But they didn't do that. They waited the use it as a hail Mary. She disputes the idea that Trump mocked. She said all he was doing was reciting the facts here, it is again, this is what the press the media. Everybody is out now ripping Trump claiming that he mocked Christine ballsy four. Did you get home? I don't remember. How'd you get there? I don't remember. Where is.

"I i as i pointed out in the peace at national review today thaddeus this is the most important consideration of the whole investigation as far as i'm concerned and despite the sprawl of this six hundred and fifty eight page report mister horowitz actually confines that point to a footnote on like out one hundred and twenty four i think and i can't remember which page it's on it's in the one sixties but basically that's the discussion of changing the applicable statute now i think to your point about whether obama is the one who triggered this dodd by his public comments i agree with you that i think it was the administration taking accuse the president i think the fbi and horowitz would say that they came around to the the view that they were going to be able to prove intent around february or so at least that's what they say what i would point out is that it was after obama made his public statements that you quite rightly just referred to that we know that then director comey began drafting his exoneration of mrs clinton we come to peace in the national review online about intention mrs clinton's intention as status just mentioned the statute itself however you expand this not just as is that intention about a particular classified email or working around talking around particular classified email meaning are using euphemisms or codenames to get around the classified documents you're discussing but the intention of having a homebrew server was that to your knowledge taken into account by horowitz's report or did he comment did he comment that that question was not in not part of director comas summary of intention no thaddeus no john he didn't he he basically assume the correctness of the fbi's analysis that the intent evidence and this is proof that she had sufficient men's raya the knowledge and intent to violate the section of the espionage act that they were investigating her under the what he says is the fbi investigated this by looking at the different transmissions of classified information that went through the system and asking who sent it why and did the person know that it was classified information and to me this very obviously misses the forest for the trees the defining thing about the clinton emails case the thing that actually made it a scandal was that she established an unauthorized non secure private service system for the systematic conduct of not only government business but government business at the highest level of government where the most important national security and foreign policy officials communicate with each other that's the thing that was the most outrageous about all this and the way they investigated it basically they say let's look at the different transmissions have classified information and then say well mrs clinton really can't be held responsible for that because she's usually on the receiving end and the people who work for her should have been more careful about what they were sending and they ignore.
