"O 5, which came after dozens of amendments were taken up from members of both parties. The legislation would restrict the president's ability to release oil from the strategic petroleum reserve. South Carolina Republican Jeff Duncan says President Biden released oil to drop gas prices ahead of the midterm elections. That is wrong. It's set aside for national emergencies. The GOP bill would require more federal lands to be opened up to oil and gas exploration if the president releases more oil. North Carolina Democrat Jeff Jackson opposes the legislation. You're looking to tie any future president's hands in a way that is fundamentally reckless. The bill now goes to the Senate. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller WTO be news.

Fresh update on "party" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Members of the one 68 friends, we are at an inflection point, our party and our conservative values are the only thing standing in the way of absolute tyranny. But if we show the courage to change today, I believe in my heart that rather than the tyranny and the depravity that we see amongst the Democrat party instead, we can have hope that we will see and I quote that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom. Just like Abraham Lincoln said in the Gettysburg address, please join me today and many others in supporting and voting for harmeet Dylan. Thank you. And now the chair would have to make a apology because I have not yet developed Nikki Drummond's pronunciation skills. Therefore, I recognize Laura, the gentlewoman from Hawaii National Committee. Thank you. I appreciate that. I rise to second the nomination of harmeet Dylan for RNC chair. I'm Laura in the camilo National Committee woman from Hawaii. When Harmon called me to tell me that she was running, I was excited. I really was. We all know harm's credentials and her unmatched skill at representing the RNC in national in our national biased media. She has been an articulate and passionate warrior for this body and all of you and many conservative causes that we hold so dear. She's fought for Christians like me for my right to worship in my own church. She's fiercely pro life. I could go on. I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to the committee and to so many of you with whom friendships have been created over our last 11 years together. We all know and recognize the difficult task before us today. I want to touch upon three issues being discussed in our leadership struggle that demand different solutions. This vote today for the RNC chairman is my 6. Until this moment, I don't remember these three issues ever being relative to those previous elections. First and foremost, a warning, we appear to many of our faithful constituents. The Republican activist as out of touch with their wants and their needs. There is a deep concern for our strongest and most loyal supporters that we no longer listen to them and some believe that we totally disregard their opinion. Second would be the concerns of the donors. I think politicians fantasize that there is an endless supply of money to wage these important battles. I fear that our donors are not as confident in the RNC's abilities after the disappointing midterms. If you don't believe that, just ask them. And third, and most importantly, we as a party have failed to engage in the most critical struggle of our lives, the fight to keep fair and honest elections in America. But fortunately this day, the Republican Party has a choice. I rise in nomination of an individual who comes from the grassroots. I rise in nomination of a man who is a major donor, who works in understands with the concerns of the donor class. A man is comfortable with the donors in their boardrooms as he walks and precinct or in organizing a rally with the grassroots. I stand in this moment of time on this day of destiny for our party. And I nominate the one individual in America besides president of Trump, of course, who has stood against the corrupt Democrat apparatus that demands fielding to the machines. The one man who is not just pledged his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor, but he was filled a significant amount of that on the field of battle already. I proudly stand with confidence in the ability, commitment, and integrity of a problem solver. The one person that can deliver new and innovative solutions to our most difficult problems. I probably nominate Mike lindell for RNC chair. Thank you. Thank you. The chair would now like to recognize Gordon anarchy state chairman from the U.S. Virgin Islands. And so, okay. Well done. Okay, the names of the following individuals are properly in nomination for chairman of the Republican National Committee. Ronna mcdaniel, our meet Dylan and Mike lindell..
The Secret to Donald Trump's Success
"That. There is a blob. And one thing I love about never given inch is that you weave the ultimate message is beware of the Chinese Communist Party as our enemy. That's number one, take away. Number two is Iran's right behind them and Putin is a wolf, but behind this all is the blob, the Washington D.C. blob, and you recount a story of an interview with Andrea Mitchell. And I've known Andrea for a long time, where he said mister secretary, I'm wondering he said, Andrea, you're not wondering. And I love that. And now that it may be the secret to Donald Trump's success with America, is they know there's a D.C. and they know there's a rest of the country. And everyone in D.C. is either with D.C. or they're with the rest of the country. Is my diagnosis correct, mister secretary? Yes, I think you're right. They can say now that there's this bigger space, there's 75 million people, even in this last election who voted against this Washington blob that you referred to, the book talks about this establishment, how it interacted with our administration. I haven't known Andrew Mitchell for a long time. But she was just sitting in a State Department that day. And I write about this. She says, miss secretary, I'm wondering, and that kind of sarcastic wondering, she wasn't wondering, she didn't even need to finish her sentence. She wasn't wondering she was trying to bang away to create space between myself and president Trump. And I wasn't going to let that happen. And so I had a little fun that day too.
Fresh update on "party" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"All right, Jack was up here again. We are in for Charlie Kirk while he's down at the RNC Charlie joins us from the RNC, the sidelines to give us a live update of what's happening with the chairs race. You can get all of that plus the exclusive speeches in real time as we give you this episode. We explain what's going on with the RNC chairs race. The grassroots uprising. Buckle up everybody here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running The White House folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy, his spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job. Building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, turning point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the lone experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd dot com. All of you have shared something unique and special with me. For instance, I learned that John wall, our steam chairman from Alabama. Once held, can you believe this, the world record for walking on Legos barefooted? 5.2 miles. John, you got to win that record back. Before the presidential race heats up. But I encourage you to take the time to get to know each other. I'm a better man today because of the influence you have all had on my life. And I'm proud of the work that our team accomplished during my two terms. We flew hundreds of thousands of miles, performed thousands of hours of grassroots and fundraising activities for all 50 states and territories and conducted hundreds of media hits sharing our Republican message. And I enjoyed every single minute of it. I will leave here today with only fond memories and a commitment to you that I will always remain your partner in our effort to advance conservative ideals and Republican leadership. Members of the one 68 IQ, I love our nation. And the future of this nation is at stake. Our country is divided. Democrats and their partners and legacy media, big tech, and even Wall Street are on the march to fundamentally transform our country into a socialist hellhole. Under the thumb of Washington, D.C., we can not ever let this happen. We have open borders, dangerous cities, the Green New Deal, and the list goes on and on and on. And don't forget, internationally, we're leading from behind again. So thank God we won back the house and we have speaker Kevin McCarthy. Republican leadership will turn the ship around and we'll shape the future for our 2024 presidential nominees agenda. If we remain united, the Republican house will stop the madness and we'll deliver transparency to a lawless administration. The American people deserve a government that works for them and is accountable to them. And as I've said before, we are not servants of the swamp. Washington, D.C., works for us. My hope is for a Republican Party united behind our conservative ideals, which stand in stark contrast to the loony left. Healthy debate is a good thing and it's a critical part of democracy. But the minute that we leave here today, we should commit to working together to achieve our shared goals..
Senators Livid Biden Admin 'Stonewalling' Them on Classified Documents
"Washington examiner Ryan king Senators live in Biden administration stonewalling them a classified document I mean this really is a corrupt corrupt administration and a crooked president and family Senators from both parties are going impatient with the intelligence communities alleged refusal To show them classified material recovered from multiple administrations Some are alleging that even members with the highest security clearance such as those who sit on the Senate Intel committee are being obstructed from reviewing the recent batches of classified files Recovered from President Biden and former president Trump A very disappointed with the lack of detail and timeline when we're going to get a briefing and he goes on those Mark Warner Any previously vented his frustrations about Mar-a-Lago they say Well then what happens now They know far more about Trump's documents Than they do about Biden's And I don't believe this story I believe it was a lie that's been bouncing around where they said that if Biden had not cooperated in his lawyers with DoJ that they were you know hair trigger on a warrant I don't believe that for two seconds They're trying to cover up and leak again the fact that they didn't issue a warrant and never intended to issue a warrant
Rep. Lauren Boebert: Can't Sleep With Spies to Be on Intel Committee
"Know the Democrats not all of them I mean I don't like to paint with the broad brush They do that to us There's some in there who are sensible very few unfortunately but some of them They're more wrong Yeah he's probably yet maybe I mean at the rest of really tier one level imbeciles I mean it's not as if we didn't warn them They overrode the judicial filibuster at the appeals court level At the appellate level and we warned them we said to Harry Reid at the time who was the leader of the Democrats in the Senate We said if you do this then we are going to dump the filibuster for the Supreme Court And it's going to kick you in the knots They didn't listen And then we warned them on this too If you're going to push for congresswoman boebert or Paul gosar Marjorie Taylor Greene or anyone else to be kicked off committees congresswoman they were warm They said you're setting a dangerous precedent that's going to come back And now it bites them in the ass and they're all acting surprising Here's the irony of me to draw up but you have Adam Schiff this lunatic whining on TikTok a Chinese Communist Party connected app And then begging for money while claiming we're fundraising off it I mean the irony is just delicious Yes well you reap what you sow And then with the help Intel committee this is completely different members who have a history of leaking lying and being in bed with a Chinese spies Do not qualify for that committee A 100%
Meta Announces That Donald Trump Is 'Allowed' Back on Facebook
"Turning back to the news of the day and Donald Trump on Facebook. It'll be interesting to see how quickly he gets out there on Facebook. You know, he's got some legal agreements with true social that require him to post their first. But what I'm most fascinated by is the timing of all this, and how bad things must really be over there at Facebook that they're like, okay, okay, now it's time now it's time. We're going to get Donald Trump back because that actually made it sort of exciting. Don't forget, they tried really hard to try and tweak the algorithms to try and really get politics out of the picture, but then they found that there wasn't as much engagement, and so they're kind of struggling. They're really struggling. They're stocks down around 50% just in the last 12 months alone, and they've announced layoffs. And they're not seeing the kind of engagement that they had seen in prior days. Meanwhile, you know, they get the threat of the DoJ, Department of Justice out there. Which just went after Google, of course, wanting to break Google up. It's online advertising business. And so I think that may be weighing on Facebook as well. A lot of different things going on, but hey, hey, they want a party to happen. We've got another election coming up. They're thinking, how do we make money? And one of the best ways for Facebook to make money is to have more engagement and more engagement means having all the people that love and all the people that hate Trump on there. Therefore they need Trump. Therefore, you know, if I were Trump, I'd try and do a deal where they paid me to be on Facebook. He ought to be the one that's gotten a big payday out of this because they're just trying to somehow keep the company going
How Did We Get Here? Devin Nunes Explains
"First, can you give us your take as somebody who's, you know, been responsible for matters of national security, especially in the intelligence community for oversight. In this ever burgeoning scandal, every day there seems to be another iteration, another facet, first it was the Penn Biden office in D.C. with the closet with the TSS CI documents, then it was the garage with the Corvette, then it was his private library, now we find out thanks to that document, it wasn't Joe Biden's home, it was Hunter Biden. So, and now we find out that Hunter Biden may have had access to those top secret documents. How far is this going to go? What do you think is behind it? Give us your expertise as the former champion. I think for this for this hour that you've been very gracious to have me here. I think we need to back up from all of this. And how did we get here? We got here because the national security division at the DoJ and the FBI are hopelessly corrupt. And Obama, his team, they knew exactly who they were doing exactly the right people to put in place there, so that it would become essentially, I think I've heard you say this, but the Gestapo for the Democratic Party. And everything from that, you can build off of that, whether it be the Russia hoax or this latest FBI guy or the fact that the Hunter Biden laptop from hell was censored before the election. All the way to why hasn't anything happened to Hunter Biden? I mean, all of this stuff is related. And they use the national security division as you very well know. Because they can wall it off and silo it from the rest of DoJ and the FBI.
The Wider Destruction of Modern Life by the Forces of Neoliberalism
"The things that leaders failed leaders enjoy doing is drawing your attention internationally. Away from what might be happening domestically. 31 Abrams tanks and 5000 armored vehicles. Why don't we send that to our own border? This should drive you nuts. That your leaders are scrambling. In both parties, scrambling to make sure that some foreign country, not America. Gets weapons and assistance. Unless we very clearly say, well, Charlie, what do you want tanks for? Well, first and foremost to go after the cartels, 5000 armored vehicles. Yeah, I think that would make a difference against the invasion. Big time. We should militarize our southern border, but that's too controversial because they call you a racist and remember. Neoliberalism means an unlimited supply of people coming into your country. It brings down wages, increases the consumer base. It's very good for hyper corporate America. It's excellent. And so that you can't possibly challenge it. Remember, invade the world invite the world. So it's this old expression, which is just so ridiculous. The neo liberals will say, well, you know, at crate and barrel, it says if you break it, you buy it. First of all, that's not the policy of crate and barrel. They just made it up. But that's what they say. It's like, you know, if you invade a country, you're going to have to invite them. That's what they say with Afghanistan. That's what they've said with every one of these major invasions. But it fits perfectly. It fits into harmony because unlimited mass migration into your home into your country is works in synchrony with invading the countries. And we're supposed to be the world's policemen yet we can't defend Michigan avenue in downtown Chicago.
Dissecting the Relationship Between China and Taiwan
"The last thing I discovered about China that I want to bring up. We had Taiwan contact guidelines. You got rid of them, but it took forever. It's sort of like the kaj root. I think I'm saying that right about the law outside of the law to make sure we don't get the Taiwan. Do you think when you left the Department of State, we had corrected the over protection of Chinese feelings at the expense of Taiwan? We'd made real progress. Now this is one of the things I'm very proud of. We for decades had been so afraid of the Chinese Communist Party and their response, right? You send a diplomat to the island and they demarc year, they scream and we'd allowed that to put us in the corner and cower. We had a set of rules that basically said, no, no American can meet with senior Taiwanese officials. It was possible, but it was essentially a ban. It took me till the very end. I can't remember 18th, 19th, 20th of January somewhere late in the term to actually get it fixed because I let the department run its process. Every time I set a memo downstairs and come back different and finally I just said, I won't tell you exact words I used. But in the end, we got it done. And we put the relationship in a place that respects the independence and autonomy of Taiwan in a way that is wholly appropriate for the United States of America in 2023.
Who Is Watching the Eyes of the CCP?
"You received an invitation or you asked for an invitation to speak to the Republican governors associated to the national governors association. NGA. And they said, huh? And you showed up and you told them that each of them had been classified by the Chinese government, that got their attention. When you tell the audience a little bit about that story, which they've got to read in full to appreciate, but the CCP has a file on every governor and they are classified. So I had seen hints of this when I was a CA director, but I became Secretary of State. I was able to see it more clearly. And I was able to get this document declassified. It was written nominally by a Chinese think tank. But what they've done at the direction of the Chinese Communist Party was to continue to evaluate all 50 governors of the United States of America. And they would rank them. Friend foe or were working on them. And by the time I got it to classify, I'd also noted that there was a meeting in Washington, D.C., where all the governors would be. And so I called governor Hogan and then governor of New York, Cuomo, and asked for 20 minutes. They gave me 20 minutes on a Saturday afternoon. It was pretty sleepy day. But when I began to lay out for them the fact that the Chinese Communist Party was watching them, observing them, running influence operations against them and had measured them, had raided them, essentially said, do we have them in our pocket yet or not, boy, I had their attention. They all, they all turned immediately to their devices or to their chiefs of staff and says, hey, I got to have a copy of that. I got to know where I am. And I wanted them to just be a little taken back, but mostly I wanted to remind them that this isn't just an attack on our federal government. It is at every level of our government today that the Chinese Communist Party is conducting its assault against our freedoms.
The One Way Ratchet With the CCP
"All right, mister secretary, one of the things you put in here that I did not anticipate seeing. And I don't know that many people will pick up on it on page one 79. China is not part of the intermediate range nuclear forces agreement. We know that Russia violates it. China is not a party to it. You write quote, we will one day need capabilities of our own installed, meaning intermediate range nuclear missiles within reach of the Chinese periphery. That's a big deal. Do you expect pushback on that? Goodness. From who, here, from D.C. establishment. The blob. From the blob, almost certainly. The central thesis that I talk about with the Chinese Communist Party is it's been a one way ratchet. They do something we bow down. They move, we turn the other cheek. They're aggressive. We tell them please don't do that again. And they just keep rolling. So the central thesis is this concept of being reciprocal. Just we should behave the way they do. They now are capable of using their boats intermediate range and long-range missiles to strike things that matter an awful lot to the United States of America. And these intermediate range missiles are important for lots of reasons. We don't have time to speak to it. The book talks about it a little bit. But yes, I'm confident that we will find nations that want to host our intermediate range facilities and that we will do so. This will be the way that we gain the deterrence, the very deterrence that Ronald Reagan came to understand in Europe in the last century. We will have to execute to make sure to protect America from the threat of the Chinese Communist Party in this century.
The Most Dangerous Man in the World
"That's true. Page two 31, you write, I first met the most dangerous man in the world on June 14th, 2018. That's bracing. You're talking about president Xi. Why is he the most dangerous man in the world, mister secretary? He's the most dangerous man in the world because as I was taught as a young cadet, there's two things you need to evaluate. Capacity and intent. The Chinese Communist Party has enormous capacity. It's got problems. Let's get demographic issues. It's got financial challenges, but it's got 1.4 billion people a massive missile and nuclear capability. A large relatively sophisticated military cyberspace, you name it. It has enormous capacity. And the economic throw weight to put behind it as well. And then intent, Xi Jinping has been unambiguous about his desire. And we often talk about in the context of Taiwan. Yep, he says, I want to reunify. China, what he means by that is go capture the sovereign nation, the great democratic people that live on the island of Taiwan. That says mission, but his mission is so much bigger than that. He wants to undermine the western way of life. The things we love, the fact that we can go to church and worship the way we want, the fact that we can teach our kids the things we want. We pick the job. We can speak. We have a First Amendment. He wants to take all that down and once the world to run much more like his giant authoritarian surveillance state. We can't let that happen. He has the capacity and intent to make our children and grandchildren live in a very different world than we have a responsibility to make sure that he doesn't even get close to that.
Neil Diamond Gets a Birthday Serenade... From Himself!
"Have a tribute to Neil Diamond? Sure, happy birthday, Neil. Son for me. Hell I'm 82 now. But make it to 83. My toupee is glued now. I'll make it stick darling. Please don't sing. The bump on bomb doing sweet girl life. I'll get up from the chair. And kick you from behind, lose my freaking mind. Oh, song sung to me. Throw a little party. James Taylor, Paul Simon and arty. Happy birthday to me.
I'll Never Smoke Weed With Willie Again
"I always heard that deserve was top shelf. I just could not wait to find out for myself. Don't knock it till you tried it. Well, I've tried it my friend. And I'll never smoke weed with Willie again. I learned a hard lesson in a small Texas town. He fired up a fat boy and he passed him around. The last words I spoke before they tucked me in. I'll never smoke weed with Willie again. I'll never smoke weed with Willie again my party's all over before it began. You can pour me some old whisky river my friend. But I'll never smoke weed with Willie again. I hopped on his old bus honeysuckle road. The party was Vegas. It was after the show. Alone in the front lounge just me and him. With one parting puff, grim creeper sat in. I'll never smoke weed with Willie again my party's all over before it began. You can pour me some old whisky river, my friend. But I'll never smoke weed with Willie again. Now we're passion to guitar. Telling good jokes. I know one's a coming 'cause I'm smelling smoke. No, I do not partake. I just let it pass by with a smile on my face. And a great contact high. I'll never smoke weed will it again my party's all over before it began. You can pour me some old whisky river, my friend. But I'll never smoke weed with Willie again. In the fetal position withdrew on my chin. I messed up and smoke weed with Willie.
Doug and Ben Lieberman Discuss the Energy Policy Dance
"You think most people have any real idea of the energy policy dance between an administration and the congressional, because even being there for 8 years, I would love to say we do oversight. I love to say we set policy, but in many ways, Congress is reactive. And I think that's become an issue over time and energy policy and other things where the Congress seems to always be reacting to what the administration is doing and especially if they're of different parties. Oh, absolutely. But part of it is Congress's fault. Congress passes these grandiose bills and allows regulators who may be in a few years controlled by the different party to do a whole bunch of things. And then you have members of Congress saying, oh, we can't stand what these regulators are doing to my constituents, but they're using statutory authority that that same member may have supported several years earlier. So you've hit something that was my pet peeve in Washington, D.C.. Number one, bill authors who had no idea what their bill did. And number two, leaving the language blank. Pelosi took a hit by beating when she said we don't have to pass it to see what's in it. The truth of the matter is she was actually being truthful, not the way to do, but she was actually being truthful. There was no way ObamaCare could be understood in the language that the bill was passed in.
Rep. Andy Biggs Wants a Fiscal Path of Sustainability
"Likely is it to get to some of the meteor topics? Because I agree, and I know you do, you want to get to the real meat of it. But the woke stuff obviously, I think, is important for a variety of reasons, but the real meat is in sending the money to Ukraine. It's the massive amount of waste in the civil bureaucracies, like the 87,000 IRS agents, and so what is the plan or the strategy to be able to kind of go through this? I mean, I think we should entertain a government shutdown. I think it's that important, but I don't know if the shutdown actually is part of this, right? This is a separate issue because this is about just the full faith and credit of the United States. Is that correct? Yeah, this doesn't really ultimately lend itself to a budget government shutdown. What it does is it provides leverage in Charlie, I'm a big believer that legislating involves leverage. This is a leverage point for us to reduce spending. So you're right. Last year, most people don't realize this, we spent a $125 billion to Ukraine. Charlie, a $125 billion to Ukraine in an undeclared war that we're not supposed to be fighting in and it's supposed to be and it's become a proxy war. Those are the type of things that are just outrageous. And there's so much of it there. My staff last year we put together a big list. Just a Department of Homeland Security alone. And this is where you need to go as to start. It's the easy. That's what I call, it's the low hanging fruit. But Charlie, we fight within our own party. I once had a bill to eliminate a 15, $20 million program that was everybody admitted was duplicated in two other agencies. And I couldn't even get it out of committee. I only had like four or 5 Republicans vote for it in committee. That's where we're up against Charlie, and that's why this is an important leverage point. If we're ever going to get back on a fiscal path of sustainability. So
Former VP Mike Pence Reveals His Possession of Classified Docs
"Turning now to the news that Joe Biden and Donald Trump aren't the only ones with classified documents. It seems a former VP Mike Pence also had a small number of documents marked as classified at his Indiana home. They were turned over to the FBI following a recent search according to his attorneys. They turned them over to the national archives, they had been inadvertently boxed and sent to pence's home when he left office there in January of 2021, so it seems like a lot of people are making these mistakes. I said this earlier and I think it's quite interesting to see how quickly Donald Trump did rush to Mike Pence's defense. He came right out and defended him. I do also think it's very interesting that Barack Obama has not done the same for Joe Biden, so think about that for a second as we mull over whether or not the Democrat party really wants Joe to run in 2024. I don't think they do. I don't think that this would have been leaked the way it was leaked if they really wanted Joe Biden at the top of the ticket. But who else do they got? Who else could create so much inflation? Unfortunately, a few two many people.
What the Left-Wing Media Is Trying to Cover Up

Go to extend dot com one eight hundred xfinity or visit a store today to get a great offer on internet and add flex for free restrictions apply. Hi this is. Tom power i host q. On cbc radio. And i want to tell you about our podcast. The queue interview is a chance for you to hear some of our favorite conversations but on this podcast will go a little deeper. Maybe a longer. Sometimes we'll hear these conversations before they go on the radio and sometimes they'll hear things you won't have heard on the radio like when the girl told me he was thinking of moving to newfoundland or when barbra streisand told me the real reasons she doesn't do too many interviews you can subscribe to the q. Interview wherever you get your podcast. So i think there's a couple of things to keep in mind now as as in the days after the The the the two things. I want us to talk about. What is the future of the green party and the people's party of canada given what happened on monday and then what kinds of changes are going to happen to this country as a result of of where we ended up on monday. Maybe we'll start with the first one so the green party is down one seat from where they were and the green party leader who has had a difficult time of it Some of our own making but certainly not all of it. placed fourth in her riding of toronto center. So didn't win her seat. I don't see any first of all. I don't see any inclination that she wants to stay as leader given the interview that i did with her a couple of weeks back but i also don't see any reason i don't see any way that she could stay as leader element and i also wonder you know what this party is. Now elizabeth may on election. Night said You know we're we're. We're here to stay. We're not a fringe party I don't think i would call them a fringe party. But they didn't run three hundred thirty candidates they are now down another seat. Is there something going on there that that the the more quote unquote mainstream traditional parties. Now all have real climate plans and so the green party suddenly doesn't become were suddenly. Isn't what it once represented. And then how does it sort of reinvent itself to to to fit in in grow. I think that's a really interesting question. I think we can maybe look at this election. Not as an indication where they are but perhaps like an anomaly at least since two thousand four so they've been pretty consistent in getting four or five percent of the vote This certainly is a collapsed but also the party a was in chaos in be didn't didn't run a full national slate of candidates And so maybe they would kind of like. Take this moment of look at it as saying we have support. The support has gone elsewhere in this election because we were not as ready as we should be as party. I imagine they're treating this as an anomaly imagined. They're having the conversation about whether enemy paul's going to lead them into the next election. Which at this point feels pretty unlikely but should be should be noted that the other seats that they want Elizabeth may's is a new seems not one that they were holding before Mike morris one in kitchener centre. Although most of my friends are kitchen are like listen. This wasn't a green party. When this was a mike morris went a really popular person So that's something for them to think about because that's significant for them to have a seat in ontario That is a start of something you could grow from there Of course they're the provincial. Greens in ontario have also been doing pretty well like in terms of being able to actually elect. Mp's so there could be the start of something biting there but we don't really know where that although the term although they also i was just gonna say they also thought fredericton was the start of something buddy in and it's not and the liberal. The newly liberal mp candidate became the mp there too but life comes at you fast crosses the floor that's That feels like an anomaly to. Yeah you're very kind to say all that it's just anomaly. Don't panic What do we think of the people's party of canada. Then they did not win any seats but they're popular vote Count did rise In some places Quite a bit in ontario for instance. I think it was. It probably landed at just under six percent and it was around five percent on average. I mean again. Maxine bernie said on election night that that was the goal to to keep growing support across the country and to show that this is a party That can maybe one day. Be a political force but again maxine bernie ran ran again in his home writing of those where he's previously one is a conservative again. He lost their so. You know. I don't know i don't know you know how serious you are if you're if you're running in places where you consistently losing And then i would also say this that that the people's party of canada in some ways benefited from the frustration around the pandemic whether it be lockdowns or vaccine mandates or getting vaccinated at all and. I don't know that that frustration and anger can be recreated in future elections so i it's hard for me to gauge whether that support for them out there is solid or whether as you point out. This is in fact an anomaly for them. I have to imagine that If you're the people's party of canada you at results For example in alberta and say yes the conservatives won most of the seats of the expect them to win but the conservatives vote was just kind of you know for a long time. it's kind of redundant. They were winning by sixty. Seventy percent of the vote in some places they want it by just a little bit less stymie reno. They're winning by forty or fifty percent and they did manage to eat Into that vote in some of those places. Is that a signal of something to come. Because like you could have a base here you could have a meaningful base here. An intern threatened the long term future. Conservative party i think so. I think they will start to look at those numbers and say Maybe we start paying attention to some of those regions in in a meaningful way. A writing like elkin middlesex. London was where chelsea hillier ramsey's daughter randy hillier reside an independent ontario. Mvp formerly of that progressive conservative party. She got i think. Ten percent of the vote That's pretty significant. That's raising -nificant. Now that the the fact is still ended up winning that seat But if you're the conservative you're thinking about that seat and it's ability long-term you might be worried about a party that can draw from your votes and get ten to fifteen percent. Who knows if that's their ceiling or floor. And so i imagine for them. They're just happy to not. Just be on the board but beyond the board in four to five percent of the vote nationally. that's where the greens used to be. The greens are a party that other progressive parties end of worrying about so. I think just the idea of becoming a party that deserters have to worry about bats the victory okay. Maybe we'll both of us end on something that we think is going to happen or change in the country. I'm to take the obvious one so you can't take it You know what. I'm going to say the national childcare plan. Listen i is that that's going to happen. it started. they were at eight before the election. That was actually part of how they were positioning themselves into the election. The liberals So that that's that's going to happen. And if if they keep the promises that they have with the provinces and i. I really put that cabinet of if on their although these seem committed to it now That that is going to change the social fabric of this country in a dramatic way In a way that really benefits and supports women And and our country look pretty different like five years from now. If all those things start to happen and i would say that. There are a couple of provinces that haven't signed on yet alberta and ontario both of whom needs some political winds. So probably i would guess. We'll find a way to sign on But that is a significant victory for people who have advocated for a national childcare plan for a long time and if the liberals don't follow through and don't make it happen.

"Just more fun to watch like it's cooling. This is easily one of the best seasons -solutely and like yeah because it's like a a wide range of people and it's been really and it's been really fun and body. Diversity is a huge issue in the show men and women. I mean it's like ridiculous. And i understand that like people who are on screens. Tend to be above average in terms of looks like all screens. But still it's a huge. It is a huge criticism. And yeah like. I don't know you don't want to isolate anyone either and like just make one like a token bam person and then they're like when when they would have one black resembling voted off and week too. Yeah yeah so hopefully. We'll get there one day. There's actually a novel about this too. Anyway call one to watch. But we were talking about kenny. And mari my thing about kenny. I just don't get it. I don't find him attractive. I don't. I don't really see it. But i haven't mar is really into each other. I do think that he like seems to really pay attention. People talk to him. Which is probably my favorite thing about him. Like morselli other guys have like he makes i contact like locks in so. I always like that. But i don't know i'm surprised. He is the hottest league one of the hottest commodities. We have yeah. I was gonna say it seemed like all the like. A bunch of girls were interested in him. Mari and demi are going out of their way to pursue him and like there are other good options available. So i'm like he has to have something some going with. I mean he's obviously in awesome shape. But yeah i you really nice guy. Yeah i was gonna say. I have to soon as something more than that. So he does seem to me like fun and yeah maybe he's just a really nice guy. I don't know me neither. Who's to say but i am working for him. I mean he has to be somewhat of a nice guy cause you can see him like he doesn't want to hurt anyone's feelings can see that. And i do think he handled has handled the demi staff while you said like he's been pretty up front and does her on at all like he said no and he's seems to be on the fan and whatnot so that's good even the mart when she went went nuts like he been handled. That well and was like told me you wanted to explore. He's never made excuses. Or whatever like i feel like he's pretty transparent upfront nice guy like i don't know if i would be happy if someone through my cake in a fire. I would be pissed. I love cake. I don't like i wanted to eat that. What the hell. I love sweets. Also there probably of food riley was like wait. What i know riley all star of this season he his screen time is low but his he really makes it. Count like every moment. He's on it quality over quantity. Yeah he's bringing it's like. He's a really high efficient. He's a high efficiency player and he's like contributing something good. I actually sort of liked his dance moves to the party. And i think that him and marissa are so cute he seems really into also i loved when she she must have been drunk but i loved and she was crying like whose crew cries over someone they met five buys ago. Was like great point marissa also at that point like just saying he was crying she was crying i was like they're all losing it. I feel like wells is just like la la la it say and then they kept like flashing to riley like berry like innocently dancing. And she's like. I can't stab me while you're dude is like behaving perfectly. I really hope they're still together if they're not that's okay too. It would be there. I hope so. He's a catch. I mean the man's a lawyer he we know he's like emotional. He seems like he'd treat her. Well look forward to their whipped cream situation next link not the weird. Oh my god not unavoidable. How how much washington is no. I couldn't do it couldn't do it. Also stands top it all off. He converse sure. Do a one handed. Push up. oh yeah. He's are saying those are definitely as we discussed. He's been working out a lot since he was on tation season. I mean he was. He was big on season. I another level. Yeah absolutely absolutely. But he's he's great. When i saw the foot thing. I i should have known. You've been disgusted. But i was just like. Oh they're gonna stand environment that's awful. I hope they're like fresh out of washing their feet or something gross. There's just i don't. There's not a i can't think of a situation where i'm second someone's to- ever never never ever ever feet don't let germs Can do sandals or are you likely type person to toews exposed. I wear sandals. I think it is not okay. I genuinely don't think it's okay to wear sandals or anything with your feet exposed on an airplane if not respectful to other people on the plane so my move in the summer is i wear sandals but i bring socks on i got on the plane and put my socks on right away. Yeah i guess. I be okay with that but it's not the other people. It's for me my feet get coal plants. It's like for my comfort. Yeah i just think it's so selfish for people that have their feet out on. Planes like planes are discussing enough you. They ended up putting their feet on the armrest in the back of the chair. It's just disgusting to do one thing and covert. I do not fucking mess flying. That i was thinking about when she was like. I just got here. Twenty four hours ago. I was just thinking how annoyed. I would have been if i her. And she's like to travel. I'm sure they don't put you in your business. I'm sure it's just coach. And she's got a quarantine and then she goes to the party her hand someone else. She's hated on the beach and then she has to leave because this dude mess it up for her to be fair. I don't like either. But i feel like chris really fucked things up for her. Yeah i think. She's done with the bachelor franchise. I also feel like. I thought she was going to stay. She should have she should have that have made people like her so she can listen. I came here with good intentions. He didn't on my fault. But i guess she's into him. I don't know it doesn't actually know each other very well though when he opened her car. She's like chris. You're in the wrong car. O like she was pissed off at the situation. She what's i. I wonder why that was like it wasn't for interviews purposes or like what are they going to different places. I didn't get that. Oh yeah. I don't know why couldn't they be in the same car. Also he didn't have less stuff. He seemed to have packed very quickly. Yeah i mean he wasn't there that long maybe five days we can't tell i really wish i could get like a like at the end of timelines. You know how they were released. Is the last minute report for every. nba game. I wish we could get like at the end of paradise. Look like tic talk of everything like like a box score and like play-by-play kind of thing. Does everything happened in chronological order. Yeah like that's definitely not. There's definitely talking with it. So that's the other thing where i'm like What if natasha and brendan were like cool for you. Know ten days and then piper came. I mean i think that is what happened. I think that it was like a while before piper went well the previous for next week. It looks like the girls that don't have guys go after brandon like it seems like demis just there for to make any sort of drama happen yeah. I think that she's probably knows.

"Paradise and it ended up going great for me. Yeah also for some reason. People did like him after the first night. I think a catchy name really helps grocery store joe. You know. I mean he's he's also just comes across so authentic whereas like chris could never. Yeah now he he just like he's like cooked up in a lab till like beyond reality. Tv and have an interest followers. And like i don't know he also just he was offered alanna land. They have no chemistry. I don't get it. Is there something that we're not seeing very very. I mean it's like he's not my type but he's a good looking guy i think he's very cute. Yeah i agree. I'm not i'm not personally like for i. He's is objectively quite handsome. Yeah let's at the party just in general so that lists reminded me of like my eighth grade trip to washington. Dc when it was like a room that was too big for the number of people. And it's like everyone knows each other and it just sort of like. There's not that much excitement here. Plus they asked to introduce the new women but it was just seemed extremely awkward. And i don't know if everyone just like a dance circle and they're showing their moves wanted a time. Isn't that really fun. I don't know also demis moves. Speaking of the damage situation is super depressing. just sad but no. Yeah the party. I just thought the whole thing was weird. I thought the i don't like how they call it a vip and then invited a lot of the cool kids kind of seemed i. Yeah exactly. i didn't like that. It was just weird. The whole thing was weird. The brandon performance the Also did you see how they were. Dancing was so straight they were holding hands like doing the twist. I loved him back. I love this song. I was like you do. How do you know it actually heard of olivia halt. But i didn't know that she had a new single out. She's a disney person essentially. So i feel like it's corporate synergy. Abc disney just a random. The whole thing was so strange also. I felt bad for olympia. she's on stage. She's no band probably because a co venture singing over some track and cheap so just seemed awkward. Like fourteen people also so strange. The don't tell you the four who come in like it's mckenna are both there and they screen time on peterson. Both of them and they're just like not mom gun. There's gone they've tested it out. Didn't stick their out already crazy. That's actually probably smart from the producers and this has been very well produced show so far just like. It's just like every minute packing a punch even this episode well. This is a comedown after after the. Natasha brendan paper. Fireworks and i know ended up. Great it seems like they're making decisions on the fly more instead of it being planned out like they're like jones serena seemed very strong. Let's drop in kendall. Natasha brendan finally kissed. Let's drop in piper like it just seems very responsive to what's happening yeah and also multiple dates at the same time. I really liked that. Like there's like bolt multiple things happening so chelsea mariner her off while thomas and or off. Isla that's a really good ideas have also liked. How erin responded. Finding out that thomas moment eight not much reaction. He must really like chelsea also in the next week. It doesn't seem like thomas and aaron get into it. Seems like tammy in. Thomas have like little tiff but maybe aaron you know found love. Maybe founding chelsea would be really cute. Oh yeah. I still don't think aaron has like great conversation but people seem to love him so i'm like i don't think the producer just like giving him the time he seems very young to me. I'm like oh. Becca probably moved on because he's just immature. That's coming sense. He'll eventually maybe you won't but he seems like a nice guy him chelsea. He's twenty six. Oh he's young. Thomas does seem like mature twenty eight. I think that might be one one eight. Yes how old is becka. she's thirty. Maybe thirty one. That thomas was older i i thought it was great when she was like. I don't know what you know about me. And he was like the good news. Is i don't know anything and that seemed really genuine. I believe that. I believe it from listening to him on. Mike and mike and brian talk about like it does seem like he doesn't know anything and i thought he was very sweet with her. And that conversation i have to say becca. I always thought seemed nice in normal. And like i interviewed her and it was very pleasant. There was just sort of like there's like this is a nice person. She's she's really come out of her shell and she seems like way more fun and like just like a great friend and a great hang. I i'm kind of shocked but like it's nice. Yeah she seems like. I like how. She's like all the drama. That's happened like she went in like talk to natasha. Like i feel like she really wants to make sure people are. Okay yeah I wonder if that's part of her being the bachelor though and just knowing. This shit can like really mess with you. So i feel like she's like overly protective of people like even her going to talk to tammy. I thought that was a really sweet and a lot of the girls would not have done it or handle it the way that she did she was like i wanna make sure our friendship is okay like yes. I'm interested but i don't know i really liked becca on top of her being super pretty to me i think she looks amazing She she looked great. Yeah she skin a lot of screen time because she's like being funny. She's being nice she's being a really good person. Seems so i. I am a fan of becca. Where i don't know if i was not a fan. But senator cared about her sam. I sort of like okay. Becca she's cool. She's real vanilla to me but now look she released got a personality. Come out of her shell and garett sucks. I'm really happy. She's no longer with him. Yeah and the a a big when you engage in. You think it's like this is it and then it ends. It must be really hard reset because he look vision of your life and then it doesn't happen. Yeah like she moved to california for him but i don't know she's doing great so she doesn't need our sympathy. Yeah also i think her. And thomas look so good together. Yeah i mean he looks great l. o. very sweaty man that which not although but he's very sweaty man Really coming out. Yeah has sweat doesn't bother me. Probably because i like him so much but also has skin is so clear that could see at all yet. But also i'm just like it's fine like winstons not clearing. You're sweating you're like.

"About it. Yeah i know i am. I was checking out. Chris's tagged picks. When i was watching the show in there is a picture of him with both alannah and just like hanging out in san diego back together before the show. Yeah it's a great picture katie's in it to sos chasing so as tammy so. This is a picture from this guy brett gardner. Who is a like a bachelor personalities pod before. Yeah i feel no other yeah. I think that's what you're saying. You was talking about that. A lot of like threw herself at chris. When they're hanging out in san diego right. that must've been at san diego's like a new bachelor hub which is not surprising in any way. I also just don't but okay i don't get why experts in the first place and then this happens and i was like yeah like you could see. He was like you know kinda douche when he walked in. Yeah like am. I surprised no spoke brow of ask exactly. I was like he came in as the smoke. Show bit like i'm not. I'm not surprised whatsoever. Also is conversation is horrible. Yeah but to say like. They don't. He doesn't seem to have any good conversations. The even the zip-lining duplan. Oh my gosh also zip lining. I like a scaredy cat. I don't. I don't like to do a lot of like adventurous things. Zip-lining not scary like just fun. I don't know. I felt like he was really over-using me. Yeah it's not a big deal since it seems great. I guess you could fall but like tourism is built on those things operate gang. So you're gonna be okay. Zip-lining doesn't scare me either. I think it's fun. But i also like listening to what he was saying to amana and i was just like what like you have. Nothing else to say da. I don't know if he was like him. Do you think you're safe. Do you think you're going to get this rose. He's so like inside the game. he's got nothing else to talk about. Maybe he thinks that will keep him on screen. I i don't know otherwise. Like i don't i don't get it. It's the whole thing is very confusing. He's we don't know anything about him. What's like at all but beyond let's okay. Whatever so that happens. You're not great. I cannot believe how worked up. Joe and riley got. Were they drunk. They had to have been joe. So chatty now he must be just boozing more and also maybe he's happy because he's found love. Yeah it seems like he is actually like pretty happy with serena. Yeah definitely. But i was like what is going on like riley was like get the book out like. Why don't you chase after her. I was like is what is going on right now. Well he didn't. Chris didn't respond. I know chris. that's that's the thing about. Chris is so lame is he. Doesn't he didn't fight for anything. Okay i'm leaving. And then he would his arm or atalanta b. Like if you want me to stay when you want me to say well it just so awkward. That's the other thing about them is like. She had direct him for their kiss. You know and she was like don't allow record. They don't seem to have any physical chemistry but my main takeaways. Everyone must love any 'cause urges jumping to her defense in a way that like she must be really well-liked because they're not natia as as we. Now yes but. I also think chris was going out of his way to multiple people said he said where the strongest couple in here. I came to paradise for just sanya. So like he had led her so far down this path of like. We're leaving together. Like i think that's what everyone assumed. Based on how he was acting he also like took her from ivan. So yeah other really. Well liked person. Yeah so like the. He broke up a pretty great couple. That people also thought was strong. And and i think people got over that because they were like well. They're clearly like you know they're going to go to the end together. They really like each other blah blah. So for the very first time. He has an opportunity. He's making out with her in front of descend ya like. I feel like it was. I can understand why people are more upset about that. than the brendan situation. A double standard to me. Because if the crux of it was you know we. We're not a line which is good for podcasts. Here's the thing. If the crux of it is chris you lied. You actually have you. You weren't into just any other way that you said you were and now you're coupled up with atlanta 'cause sending they're going to keep giving each other roses back and forth like as you said that i'm like yeah that's the point of the show. That's how it works. You come forth there like so it might as well just go. And it's like the same with piper in brendon. They're clearly a couple he was not upfront about what was going on about them. Even if like people knew he said certain things that have proven to not be true. And so i just don't understand why they were given a few days of like okay do your thing. And like piper's like hanging out with everyone and brendan's just back to wearing his muscle tanks. And and i i don't understand. People aren't as outraged like it's it's because they like piper. I don't know. I think that will one. Yes i think brennan has real friends like ivan. Wouldn't even say anything bad about him when. Natasha was begging everyone to say one single thing. Bad about brendan just going person to person being like someone him for me But i think brennan has friends and then piper has real friends so far like leaving them alone right so i think that's point one like that's one reason why people are leaving alone because they won't have like a whole group against them. Sure to. I think a lot of people talked. We heard about it. People knew about the piper situation. It wasn't like natasha is like oh my god. I can't believe the way that she's acting like. You can't believe it because yeah told about it. Twenty times from twenty different people like there's no we don't see everything so there's probably even more conversation about it than we even saw like when she told. Joe joe i mean you knew and like show just dropping the truth bobs now and when joe knew she was like i mean no he was like you had an idea. So i'm like okay. The way that joe who i think is pretty rational minus his his two on one on chris. Pretty rashly dude was like does it suck. Yeah did he mislead you a little bit. Sure are you completely blindsided. No you you knew kind of what you were signing up for. Yeah i just brendan must have really convinced her otherwise. I don't know i'm shoes. i'm choosing to believe natasha. Maybe it's because. I really feel for her. I just feel like the situation. Natasha's is my own personal worst nightmare. Where like you think that you have a connection with someone you know. There might be another woman he tells he downplays it and you kind of like talk yourself into the relationship and then like reality hits you because another woman shows up and i just like it's just that would be so horrible and so i just feel for her so hard and i would be like if i were natasha. Or just any a-. I would would not just be angry. I would be like so distraught. And i don't know like they're handling a lot better than i would. No i feel like if the tasha was handling it differently. I'd be like that really sucks. Because clearly he did downplay it. I will say he downplayed it. I'm not gonna say didn't do that. He may have lied a little bit. But i don't think it was like he made any like like he wasn't like i'm leaving with you i. I don't think brendan was making it. Seem like you're the one for me by any means. Yeah i also think that if she had interest in somebody else like. I think mari and kenny were way. Further along the natasha and brandon. Yeah brendan yeah and marketing. Like oh i want go talk. Somebody else are kenny. Going and doing that like natasha could have gone and spoke to somebody else. She could have if someone came in and asked her on a date. She would have been able to go. It's.

"Party ninety two of this extravaganza explosive week in paradise. I've here with kelly. hi kelly. Hello there's so much parse in fact. I wasn't sure it'd be able to do this podcast today but we had to. Because there's so much going on. I was just like we can't talk about this. This is the best week of the bachelor content in quite some time. We have to dig into it. I mean so much happened. What was like the best part for you. Oh my god the best part. I feel like they were so many good parts. I mean there really were. That's why i'm asking such. Yeah some of the good was like. I don't know if it was good. There was like parts where i was like. I don't wanna watch. This obviously kept watching but like it was. Just there was more cringe. Like close your eyes moments in this episode. Then like which makes it so awesome. But you're looking forward. I cringe every time. Titus burgess said tight ass party. And i was like what is that a saying. Like what is what is that. Why did he keep saying that. I just miss david spade. It's all i want to throw out there. Yeah david spade was great previous next week low. John seems like he's bringing energy. We'll see i don't i don't like how their like making the host talk about themselves a little bit like well headlands with the instinct music. I don't remember them really doing that. David spade. And that's maybe what i liked about him like. It seemed less about him and more about the show. Demi was like joe dirt. Okay now sort of like all. We got but yeah. Because he's more famous than the other two or something more than lance. I don't know. I think it depends on your age. Probably lands probably more famous of these people. Although be i don't i don't know david i mean. Yeah most davis for at this point to me. It's it's still tommy boy and black sheep and saturday night live but like i don't know what he's saying is for for other people like what's your david spe association robbie tommy boy. I mean it's great movie. Fat man salute. Yeah i would. I would say that. He's not famous for under thirty. Yeah i mean debbie joe dirt so also i guess he's in a really low david chapelle yet. Tammy thought he was. Dave chapelle which he was in the wrong missy which i think was very popular. Not flex though. I didn't watch it anyway. Thank you this show back to show. It was a little bit too much. Tighter burgess for our liking but the rest was tapped fantastic but is tight. Ask party saying do people say that. Not no fear knowledge. Nothing not to my knowledge. I consider you cooler than me so if it were you. Thank you know is in the pudding just to like. I think all of the hosts have done a fine job. I felt the producers are making them. Do things that i'm like. Why are you making them do that. Right i i don't know either. I missed the entrances. Only get like some of them. Like one titus burgess talked to. I think it was atlanta right. He's like oh yeah. Yeah yeah are you. Yeah it's just bizarre. Oh and then in child but like we didn't see chelsea's entrance. I believe i don't know we did it. We just saw her coming down the steps and she's just so striking you know she doesn't. She doesn't need an introduction. Her top was i was like. Are those sleaze attached. I was. I had like pause it to understand her shirt. Her legs are made along so so long. Yeah how tall is she. She's six feet dues. Yeah i was like goodness they keep talking about. how hot like making. It seem like an amazon. Well most these women are tiny. I mean compared to demi. She's probably like foot taller now. I had to gas. I mean but that's why aaron was so excited to see her. I think a lot of the a lot of guys seem to think that she was. I think she's very pretty. So i mean she's a model so clearly a lot of people think she's pretty her modeling profile. Says she's five eleven at half. Yeah and then she always wears heels all right. Let's get it. We're just like beating around the bush. Kristen alannah what the fuck i mean. Who is people. This whole thing was weird. I don't even think about that. I didn't even think about that like i. I mean the whole thing was i from beginning to end like him just going and for cast three seconds in we watch. We had to have missed something. Did he really just immediately kissed her. Like what the hell. But that's that's i think that's why everyone's like you clearly had something before this right. Because he kissed her within like thirty seconds of sitting down i know and he just went to her right away. It was it was really confusing but also was he drunk. Drunk like yeah. Was he drunk. Because then the next morning he woke up it was like moping around. But she wasn't there yet maybe part of it was like what if she doesn't even come and then i'm stuck here without her and like i just really messed up what you send us off to pretend like. I'm so sad about it. Get his his sad beach. Walk was pretty dramatic and ridiculous. Yeah so. I didn't occur to me that he was hung over that moment. But you're so right like he might have been having the the hangover blues. when like. you're depressed like feeling crappy and you forget that alcohols depressive and you're wondering why. We're having such a bad day only because i was wasted last night. Yeah but that's kind of like the only explanation because he hasn't seen like a mean guy but what he did she just any. I just making out in front of her. Run of her is so messed up. Yeah also she's very sweet so it's not like it's not like someone who bike. Listen i want women to stand up for themselves or whatever but like if they happen to demi i'd be like i don't feel bad because like demi would do the same thing to the guy right like just send. You would never do that to him or ivan for example yes he was up front with ivan. I'm to be like sorry. I'm into chris like she a handled it in a proper mature way like talking to ivan about directly so he wasn't like caught off guard or whatever i mean. I guess the main thing is like no. Chris was barely on television previously. He seems to have been a lot of connections since he hung out with both. Just santa anna lanna before paradise. Yeah i mean he's like he's swimming the bachelor who'll and absolutely i think we also missed because it seemed like peapod sacked such strong opinions and obviously they can't show us everything. He must have had multiple conversations with multiple people about followers. And how the joe said he talked about how to be popular like. Oh now that. That was pretty bizarre. It's i talked about this with jared on the previous episode. The everyone just talking about like instagram followers getting clout now is kind of weird like i i sort of. I think it has to do it. Because it's a big part of the ecosystem of this show now but it is still jarring to be like. Oh they're just talking about their instagram following. It's not even like pretend secret. Yeah but also part of me is like let's be very clear ninety percent of people that go on this show. That's part of the package that they want going showers. There's no other reason to go on the show right because there's like one offs you do. I think that michael a went on the show for instagram followers. No but afterwards was he happy about it. He wasn't mad. Yeah definitely not mad. I'm sure he was happy about it. Yeah so i think there are like no one offs where people are actually just like someone signed them up for the show and they got picked whatever and it happens but it is part of the things. I'm like all he is get off your high horse. Everybody wants followers like whatever. Would i have a conversation.

"Them vote. is healthcare you. Would you would think oh healthcare. Well we've got a universal healthcare. Everything's good well. it's not it's not great and it's not. It's not perfect. And i think a lot of people also coming out of the pandemic. I'm not sure we're out of it. But you know coming off the back of it Have thought more about healthcare. Perhaps than they have in the past and again in this election healthcare has already started to pop up and emerge as first of all an important policy issue where the main parties really differentiate themselves. And i think contrast is what elections are about and this issue is a good one because you can really look at things and say oh. That's quite different. So here's where. I feel more aligned I'll just go through it quickly. And then we'll talk about sort of how it flared up this week politically so the conservatives promised to meet with premiers within the first one hundred days to strike in your health agreement which is what premiers have been calling for frankly from from justin trudeau and in erin o'toole case he would boost the annual growth rate of the health transferred to six percent And that would be about sixty billion dollars over ten years. Not really clear how he would do that yet. Because we haven't seen as costing but that's the overall promise The liberals want to invest billion dollars is what they've promised on top of the four billion that they invested recently to try and eliminate weightless to Encourage the hiring of more doctors and nurses and nurse practitioners and the and ep to want to Work with provinces to increase access to primary care And want to make sure that Other things like pharma care is is introduced. A national farmer care plan which the liberals promised in the last election. They've made a little bit of progress on it but The not too far down the road and a dental care plan. So that's sort of the broad strokes of it but what became fascinating this week in my mind was the positioning around whether there is a place for private healthcare in this country to facilitate Access to to private to healthcare overall. That could deal with waiting. Lists and other things Let let me play. That clip of erin o'toole just to position us on on that issue. I view innovation as a good thing. I trust the premier's to do what is best for patients. In their provinces if saskatchewan when alberta ontario or quebec want to innovate to provide better healthcare. I support that. Why because it gives canadians more choice. The more choices canadians have in health. Care the better. It reduces wait times and it frees up. More money to reinvest in healthcare should say that mr tool that was erin. O'toole the conservative leader. Who also said you know. I believe in universal healthcare. It is fundamental to how canada works. But what did you make of that. Comment that clip. I mean i'm so interested in the story because the something about the healthcare discussion that almost in this country anyway. That almost skips the intellectual part of the conversation and we go directly into the emotional. It's like the very possibility of raising private healthcare. The very possibility of raising choice in healthcare all those words seemed to trigger an anxiety at least in some voters that parties can then choose to exploit never whatever ways they find possible and so. That's kind of a refined ourselves this week right because this whole thing started because the liberals put out this clip it was tweeted by christopher freeland and the clip was o'toole explaining that there are ways to find Public and private. You know synergies was his phrase in canadian healthcare. Well the thing is twitter ended up labeling that clip as manipulated media because there was the rest of the clip. Where we're o'toole says that it's still really important to maintain universal access all of that background to get to this place where healthcare becomes this wedge issue. That's really fun to talk about. Because even making room for the possibility of private healthcare in this country becomes an anxiety and oh to specifically was talking and praising to sketch wins approach to is. There's a huge backup in getting an mri and saskatchewan sort of established a system. Where you can go and pay for an mri and o'toole is calling that a form of innovation. It's not really clear whether the saskatchewan plan has worked or not wait. Times are have not decreased but is just the idea of opening of this. Discussion has created a whole new wedge to talk about. Yeah at a time when frankly they've all got you know good ideas about how to deal with healthcare and trying to meet the challenges. I think that people feel in their lives which are very often access to doctors family doctors and wait times getting treatment for things so they've all got these ideas but instead of talking a lot about these ideas we've spent a lot of time talking about healthcare as a wedge issue as you say and whether there should be a place for the use of private companies in our public health care system and in the clip we played of mr tool. It certainly sounds as though he's open to that that that's a conversation. He wants to have the problem when you when you say that though is that you expose yourself to a political attack about as you say an issue that canadians can be quite emotional about and quite protective of and so it wasn't surprising then to hear the liberal leader. Say this something that area tool has clearly and directly said. He is a long-standing believer in a for profit models of healthcare. He needs to come clean with canadians on exactly what that means when he says that. So i don't know what what do you think like we. We've talked about canadians being emotional and protective of healthcare. But do they Are they even willing to have that conversation. Do like is that the conversation. We should be having around healthcare in an election. I mean if you wanna talk about the policy conversation certainly because we're just emerging from a year where our healthcare system has gone through a lot and be the question of is. This working for us should absolutely be up for debate. The fact that erdo tool has advanced the argument that he's going to increase funding by such significant amount is a huge step. But none of that is what we're talking about right so like when i think about for example the global mail had a headline that was you know reference how errand or tool promises choice in healthcare the toronto star. Ask a question would he undo canadian medicare in the process. That's where we ended up. Going is the seems to be such little tolerance for opening the door for privatization that it can immediately be kind of seized upon. And you stop having the policy discussions you stop having the intellectual discussions and you only have the emotional ones about our country where we want to pay for really important care or is it a part of our value system that we're not willing to negotiate for it. One of the things that stood out to me erin. A tool said when asked about our healthcare system he said i like the healthcare system. We have now that is to put it plainly a very different tone than how usually political leaders talk about healthcare because they talk about such reverence they say it is the backbone of this country. Eight is the most important thing that we have. We should build a shrine to it. This very very rarely this idea of. That's fine but there are things that we can do. And i have to imagine if the liberals are watching erin o'toole talk about wanting to have it intellectual conversation but healthcare. They would welcome this. Because i just wonder.
"party" Discussed on Party Lines
"O'toole was being received. He was consistently polling as unpopular. I in fact. I would not say too much of a fiction to say that those exact numbers are kind of why we find ourselves in this election right now like polls and the being these signals that governments use to decide. Okay we go now because everything that the other party's doing is not really registering that. Well while he's the conservatives were suffering on only week two of this election you would not know it you would not know it anymore because polls have them back up to a statistical tie visit ekos poll that gave them an incredibly credibly tiny lead. I think it was two fifths of a percentage point but that happened quickly. And i think like on the one hand you might say well. Is it really that surprising that the conservatives have returned to their floor like i mean really celebrating just showing up but but on the other hand is not nothing. It's not nothing that in just ten or eleven days after seeing more of erin o'toole he seems to have closed like six or seven point gap. What do you make this. Yeah. it's not nothing it. It's incredibly reassuring for conservatives to to see them return as you say to the floor of of where the where they should be. Starting from. The you know from the starting blocks. They had a lot of ground to make up the the new all of that. And that's why they did some of the things they've done in these early days for instance putting forward their their whole platform very early on Last week just start putting ideas out there that that erin o'toole can talk about so that canadians can get to know him and what he represents. I think a couple of things and i think conservatives that i talked to would agree like. Don't count your chickens before they hatch right leg just because you're back where you should be doesn't mean you're about to win anything but it means that you're now in the game which is where they needed to be in the in the first you know or or ten days. So you're in the game. It's an actual race right now but i think what fascinates me about it is how erin o'toole is trying really hard to make sure he doesn't get caught up in the same issues and problems that really Stymied andrew scheer who was of course the conservative leader during the last election in two thousand nineteen and that the liberals used really effectively to To to take down mr sheer even though he you know he did win more votes than them. You didn't win more seats And i'll give an example for instance right Climate change is the first example Andrew scheer never wanted to talk about a real. Climate change plan certainly wasn't ready to contemplate a carbon tax erin o'toole even before he put out his platform did put forward a plan to deal with climate change including this like personal account. Where if you would buy gas for instance you'd get money back into your own account to spend the way you want anyway. We'll talk a lot more about climate policy for sure. But he sort of took that issue he sort of neutered the issue a little bit from the liberals. I think you can still criticize whether his plan is effective. But the fact that even had a plan that he wanted to put on the table already helped in terms of the contrast between him into share and there's other examples too so social issues social conservative issues would be the other example of that. He says very proudly that he is pro choice. He does have some issues around what doctors would be allowed to refuse to do. Including referring a patient to another doctor but he says openly that he's pro choice and that is not something that andrew scheer dead so you can see how some of these these issues that would normally have been potentially damaging for conservative leader and the liberals are trying to use Just don't have the same kind of Same of force seem kind of power over erin o'toole seemingly anyway it's worth also pointing out. That o'toole has a bit more breathing room than his predecessors might have because the end. Ep are so singularly focused on the liberals this time round nine even the liberals they're so singularly focused on justin trudeau. A lot of the as the have been running have been about trudeau and why trudeau can't be trusted. Usually you would see the end ep. Trying to make a bit more room for themselves by also fighting against the conservatives and pointing out that they are not to be trusted not so this time around and it's given erno tool quite a bit of space to expand and show people more of who he is. I i'm glad you brought up the platform because you know long before i was in canada. Legend tells tales of a red book. And i wanna talk about it because you know the years. Nineteen ninety-three kim. Campbell is a progressive conservative prime minister. And she's actually popular before she calls an election certainly more popular than than john creek chen. Who people kind of knew as a figure cabinet but didn't really know what he what he stood for and the reason. I want to bring up. The red book is that that was the liberal platform in the nineteen ninety-three election which is remembered for being a platform that is a hefty and hyper specific about all the things that the liberals are going to do and the red book does the work of credibility it protected christian because it gave them something to point to. You know he was like you. Sure you don't know a lot about me. Here's his book. Here is all these plans and when the campaign started the couple of polls had the progressive conservatives in the lead by the time it ended he was. The party's biggest defeat. And the reason i bring that up is because on day two or the campaign. This time around o'toole released his conservative platform. It is not a red book. It has got his face on the cover. But it is hefty in size. It contains exactly what he stands for. And i think it's also doing the same work of protecting him against a lot of the charges that liberals have been laying at him. I mean very early on. They tried to raise the specter liberal secretary. The specter of steven harper and comparing erin o'toole to stephen harper. And i'm. i'm just not sure. I'm not sure that charges sticking because aaron errands and continue to point at all the things that are in his platform and it is doing that protection work this week. He's had a couple of announcements about workers one about making sure that there's worker representation on the boards of publicly regulated companies and another announcement about protecting worker. Pensions and look. I'm not sure that anybody's breaking down the door to vote on the basis of worker representation on boards. However i think it is right. It's like it's like doing the work of giving the impression that erin o'toole is not like other conservative leaders and it seems like the more that impression sticks the better. he's doing the polls now that he's back up to that floor. Let's see where it goes from here. Yeah and i think you're one hundred percent right. I think when you have things talk about. It's probably easier to run a campaign right just a bit. Yeah when you've got all these things to point to an and propose and offer up to canadian so you can talk about issues rather than be beyond the defensive around things that you may or may not believe so. So i i think that's i think that's excellent analysis. My friend stopping He also says that he's this is on the front of the platform to the quote man with a plan and as as kitschy as that may be it also is in contrast to you know the liberal leader who called this election And still seems to be struggling to say what the plan is like. Wyatt's happening and then what the plan is for the country going forward and that may be because he doesn't have a platform out yet. It's not going to be out for a while and he's putting forward you know planks But sometimes it's harder to captured the imagination of canadians when you do it in a piecemeal way That said i do think that there are some some challenges. Still for mr o'toole He is the only well. He anatomy polar the only Leaders who haven't had a federal campaign before The conservatives continue this strategy to stay in the hotel room at the westin in ottawa. Two days a week to do large telephone town halls They seem to think that that's working. I'm i'm not sure whether you can get through like what your personality is on the phone. Maybe can maybe. He's very charming on the phone. I don't know And he's of course. Never done a debate Now he has done debates inside the house of comments which is also different than mr shirkers. Mr shirt was the speaker of the house for so long so didn't really get into that kind of performance but aaron o'toole hasn't of course done a federal leaders debate So there's there's a lot of like things out there that that could potentially go wrong and that the team is going to have to control for i think And i think that he also has to do what every conservative leader does and that is somehow walked the line between keeping all those people that vote conservative no matter what the quote unquote base happy and then trying to drag the party. Which is what he's doing on the issue of climate change and and as you point out the worker issue to try to drag the party closer to where most canadians seemed to be an and where more voters are for him. i don't know. Can you keep up that tightrope walk.

"He's the guy who put their tour on this credit card because they were losing so much money he just financed by an american express card. They make the point in so many words and the documentary when they had to finally fire him because he was so addicted to coke that everybody was doing it. And nobody knew you could get addicted to it You know it sounds dumb. Now china right. Everybody was doing. It wasn't even that illegal right. He's smoking cigarettes. So people would be doing. And i think it was maybe appear credit as for somebody was saying you literally did it everyday like ten times a day. Everybody was doing it. It was everywhere everywhere. You went people. Were doing coke and then finally you realize oh wait. That guy can't stop that guys you know so. They had to fire this guy who had been their manager forever because he was so strung out on coke that he couldn't stop jeez crazy. That's like old radio stations in the eighties. Man go in. The bathroom is just lying sitting on there dan. That's that's how they bribe their their artists onto the radio. That was the paola. Pagot thing cocaine in the late eighties out this crazy man. For max anzac zack. I'm almost positive. I know what zacks gonna say who In in stand up comedy now is like fueled by anger the most successful. I think i know zach's answer is going to like leads with like frustration with the world. I mean it. It's the obvious. One is bo burnham. Okay he's. That's not what i thought you were going to say. I thought you were gonna say bill. Burr bill burr is is to Yeah 'cause bills actually sorta softened up a little bit. But he's known he was used to be super right but Yeah i mean but look at that latest special. that's why can't handprint is both legitimate late. Just he's given up on humanity. I know it's like twenty years ago. We had lewis black to right then. Lewis is still around but like louis was a big deal daily show era and it felt fake. Yeah that felt. It was hilarious. Yeah but it felt exaggerated. Sure you can tell. George carlin's frustration with the things that he rips were sincere arguments against things. Louis goddamn was lewis. Funny though ben when he when he would just yell about like things like starbucks being too close together your like the st louis black wanted to burn it down if felt force but it also was very very funny. Got somebody like you know what you're going to say because it's the obvious answer. Go ahead what do you think. Dave chapelle all. I think that's part of it. I think all of that generation of comedians. I've kind of shifted over to anger because if you watch any comedian over a certain age every single standup within the last two or three years has something about quote unquote cancel culture or people being too sensitive and stuff like that. So i feel like a lot of the older comedians. That are relying on our veteran. Comedians there is no breakout new. Standup comedian right. Now that's like would be for the anzacs generation if we were so you know we talked about this. When bo burnham special came out that i do think bo has the chance to be the voice of your generation because he is the most creative in unique person that your generation has whether or not he ever like breaks through big time mainstream. I'm not sure because obviously he sells out theaters and stuff when he wants to now..

"And the charter should like take a seat. Yeah and i think in the case if you look at quebec whether it be around well they would call it a secularism bill or whether you look at language laws. Those are two things that criticized the legislation as much as you want. But they the quebec government. In those two instances plus it goes. Government would argue that they are overriding the charter to protect the identity of quebec the language of quebec and the culture of quebec. You can dispute that. But that's what they would say so you can sort of understand why they might make the case. That section thirty three should be used in the case of this particular one does. I don't think that party. A third party financing speaks to the identity of ontario are need to survive what happened to our rights if we were to be bombarded with third party ads for twelve months like clearly the scale is a little bit different and unfortunately the only way right now for citizens to judge whether the notwithstanding clause is being well used or not is with an election. That's really the only sort of safety mechanism that's built in all of this. The fact that it does expire after five years. That's sort of the normal electoral cycle. And that's when people can weigh in and say you know what that didn't make a whole lot sense to me. And i'm not cool with that. I would critics seemed to be saying though is if you start to use it more and for things like what. We're seeing ontario. Does it start to normalize the use of it. And how does that affect the country's rights overall and. I think that that's a pretty good question to ask. And should we be as citizens worried about that right. It's not so much. The story as would opens the door to because you're kind of in politically unprecedented grounds in terms of this kind of use. The glass and i get is a blatantly political moment to us. I'm than i was standing clause so if ford is going to do this. Does that open the door to other premiers to do that. Certainly the constitutional scholars are banging the tables of course in the back of the room. Because i'm sorry constitutional scholar. They're banging of the table saying no. No this is not this things for and the question is like. Is anyone going to listen to them. Yeah you know to be fair conservatives would say no this is exactly what it's for. This was the whole point of putting this in the constitution was to allow provinces to make these decisions and claim their own powers to make their own laws for it not to be influenced unduly by the court and you can understand that that is the argument that provinces would make but i think you have to also be willing to defend fiercely. Why you're doing it. In this instance. For now i have to say maybe what is allowing the ontario government to avoid a huge amount of criticism. Is what you said off. The top that election financing is not generally why people take to the streets right. This is not this is not. They are not feeling this directly in their everyday lives. And so maybe they'll be able to do it and move through it without it becoming a huge issue but that.

"Your best friends. So join me. Alina mahmoud and a panel of the smartest culture critics that i know as we dissect the discourse but also have a great time doing it. This is a cbc podcast. Hey there i'm rosemarie barton. and i'm elena democracy and this is party lines rosy for the first time in ontario history. The government has used the constitutional option. Duck ford government invoked the notwithstanding clauses week barry so his government could pass legislation limiting third party election advertising after a judge said back violated the right of freedom of speech so this week. We're going to go deep into the charter of rights and freedoms to look at its most controversial. I love it. I love i love it you. Meanwhile green party leader. Paul lost one of her. Mp's to the liberals so that's a third of her caucus now gone and she's facing growing discontent among the membership. She's had the job for less than a year. What is it make the green party. What does it mean for poke. Its party lines drama addition. Let's do this ooh okay. I'm excited for this one. Today show is full of dramatic turns the start with this. Bill just took effect antero. And it's a bill that was introduced by ford and the progressive conservatives and essentially would've does is restrict. Our third parties can spend their money on political advertising ahead of any kind of election. The law that the. Pc's are tinkering with here is not a new law. It was originally introduced by kathleen wynne to keep big money out of politics so before there were certain restrictions on how much third parties like unions are advocacy. Groups could spend a little messing about six months before an election. Ford made that period a whole year before an election but kept the spending limit the same and they made the argument that this move will keep big money out of politics. So unions can't spend big bucks for a whole year before election. I should also add that. It's not just unions. There would also be partisan sort of lobbying groups that would be part of this would be considered third parties like ontario proud. Oh yes that's right so the opposition says hey this is anti-democratic which is of course up for debate. But like that's what an opposite job is is to oppose and say the thing that you're doing is not great anyway. The bill ends up in court and a judge last week. Says actually this. Bill is unconstitutional. Because the pc's pulled this year before the election thing out of a hat like there's no explanation for this kind of arbitrarily said for this period. That's where things get dramatic and i'm like rubbing my hands with exciting here. It's i can really is happening. Okay so doug. Ford recall. The ontario legislature invoked the nuclear option aka sections thirty three. Which is the notwithstanding clause and with the section does for folks who are not familiar is it. let's provinces say well okay fine. This law passes unconstitutional. But we're going to override the charter for five years and we're just gonna do anyway and chaos. I mean not really. Because i've had a lot of conversations with like relatively political friends and not one of them was like you know what i want to talk about is huge story but it is a big deal because it's the first time that it's ever been used in ontario and it's like the courts played this powerful card in ontario was like here's a counter spell this really powerful and it raises the question. Should we have accountable. Card against the chartered. Is this how we should operate this democracy. I love it and we have to answer. That is against in the next ten minutes. It's super fascinating. And it's also a conversation that we have sort of sporadically in this country when a when a province decides to invoke the notwithstanding clause which happens very very rarely producer. Richard wanting to make sure we said that very rarely quebec has used it multiple times. Which probably won't surprise people. They've used it with bill twenty one. Which is the bill that prevents people from wearing religious symbols work in public service positions. They've used it already with bill ninety-six which is their new language law. New brunswick almost used it with a mandatory vaccination policy alberta used it around the same sex marriage law back in two thousand but didn't end up. Having to all that to say is there are attempts to use it. There are threats to us. It would probably be the to put it by provinces to sometimes say we're willing to go this far and then some sort of compromise is reached or someone down or the courts their minds. It's super interesting. I think to look at it from different. Political ideological perspectives liberals Who of course brought in the charter. Under pierre trudeau would say that. This is something that was done. In order to placate a couple of provinces in order for the constitution to be repatriated and that is as you say the nuclear option. It is the last thing any government should ever consider. In order to suspend rights conservatives would have a different view conservatives would say this is vital to allowing politicians and policymakers to push forward their agenda and not be held back by the courts and those positions. Are i think valid in this conversation. I think when the question is is whether in this instance in particular this is about politics as opposed to policy where it makes sense that you would need to suspend the rights and a whole lot of people are certainly saying that this is about politics and and doug ford and his party not wanting to see overwhelming criticism during a writ period leading up to next june. right like what's been an interesting fallout. Is that few people are talking about the substance of the bill. Like sure can change a lot about how democracy works like that is something that a lot of parties do but everyone is now talking about how their getting better like. It's kind of like using a helicopter to get across town like no one's asking about your destination just like why are you taking that to get there and i feel like it's time to overlook the fact that like you mentioned you know in quebec section thirty. Three's like brushing your teeth. You wake up shower and then you use section thirty three to override some stuff but ontario. The idea that this is new territory is significant. Ford has threatened before he spent a use it when he was pushing to reduce the size of the toronto city council but that threat used to be enough that he was the specter of using. It kept it from actually being deployed for the nuclear option. Maybe we should back down here but now that it has been pulled it raises all these questions but the use case because is it actually an emergency to limit spending on third parties people's screaming in the streets. If i hear one more union ad on the radio will lose it like is that what's happening or is it. Perhaps that these third parties are to be blunt less likely to make a big adspend saying you should vote. Pc and it is in fact in ford's interest to make sure that their ability to spend is affected. That's not an affair thing. Nearly every party gets into power and figures out a way to tip the scales slightly to make it harder for the other guy to get support or getting money but not every party pushes the big red button and says it is imperative that our political interest be protected.
