Fresh update on "pelosi" discussed on Jim Bohannon

"Beyond Biden from center street publishing as we get to some calls for you of mister speaker I must confess I look at the opening year of this administration with wonderment I mean if I were an aide to Joe Biden an adviser which I certainly am not and if I had his best political interests at heart which I certainly do not I would be demanding to see him in the Oval Office and say mister president you're messing this all up Starting with that inaugural address didn't that guy who wrote that speech meet any of the rest of your administration You promote this healing unifying president and then you go off on the purely partisan road which is your right despite your lack of a real mandate but don't raise expectations about healing and unity if you're not going to do that I mean the whole thing it's almost as if Republicans had some kind of secret entree into the advising process and were helping the administration commit political suicide sir Well I mean I think let's start with your point about inaugural address To anybody who is sophisticated when you have on the very opening day I think they repealed 17 of Trump's executive orders immediately after the inaugural address Well you can't tell us you're going to be bipartisan And you're going to bring us together And then spend a large part of your opening day on doing what Republicans have worked hard to do Somehow and then bring up a series of bills where you don't consult the Republicans at all And establish some really pretty ruthless things When the Nancy Pelosi is essentially running a dictatorship and it's she has taken steps for example stripping committee members of the Republican Party in a way which has literally never been done It is violates every process of how you run the House of Representatives and basically says look we have a majority we're going to run a dictatorship And I suspect that Kevin McCarthy is taking notes for next year when he becomes speaker and the Democrats may find that they set some precedents that they will rule for a very long time Really what goes around comes around I reminded of what one former speaker once said upon assuming the power of that position and began his remarks by praising the other party I'm sure you remember that as you were that speaker Well I mean I really did want to do things that brought us together We had a contract with America We didn't have a contract with Republicans or a contract with conservatives And for example when we passed welfare reform we establishing work as the primary way of rising in America we had half the Democrats vote with us It was one O one to one O one And I was very proud of that I thought you know if you could get half the other party to vote with you that's pretty darn bipartisan when we balance the federal budget for four straight years We had to do it on a bipartisan way to get Bill Clinton to sign the bill If we had been narrowly partisan he just wouldn't have signed it So I look at what the current situation and I think it's actually destructive both for the country which is the important thing but also for the Democratic Party I mean I think that it's just unhealthy the way that they're doing things And I think that it produces results that are in the long run not only not sustainable but they're very dangerous I mean I think there's a grave danger that we are going to find China and Russia collaborating in a way which literally puts our very survival as a free country at risk Calls now for a former speaker Newt Gingrich author of beyond Biden starting with Mike in Denver Mike in Denver good evening Mike Jim good evening Thank you so much for taking my call and mister Ginger It is such an honor to be with you this evening I am a younger conservative Thank you so much for all you have done for the GOP over the years It means so much thank you And so absolutely absolutely And so I just had a very quick question this evening So I'm actually you know like I said a younger conservative and what I was kind of personally seen lately is this trend of many Democrats in my age group millennials looking at this woke culture that the Biden administration just kind of promoting with things like the Green New Deal critical race theory the AOC agenda essentially They're waking up to this They're saying this doesn't represent us as an ideology And you know I think younger voters are going to really express that in the next election But I wanted to ask you in your opinion where do you think this whole extreme blessed kind of woke ideology originated from And do you see this kind of this agenda really hurting Democrats in the midterm elections in the 2024 elections with younger voters That's a great question There's two questions actually On the political side I watched as Glen junkin ran a very good race for governor in Virginia and the whole question of radical values and particularly of the schools teaching for example that if you're white you are a racist teaching people to hate each other dividing people teaching a false American history which particularly in the place like Virginia which was the home of Jefferson and Washington and Madison Leads to a certain kind of deep resentment So I think in that sense you're likely to see those issues be important I think you raised a bigger question which I'm actually working on right now And that is the real origins one way to trace it would be back to the French Revolution And then up through both the Russian and Chinese revolutions and remembering that both Alger Huxley and his book on Brave New World and in 1984 by George Orwell both of those were forecasting a lot of the stuff we're now seeing which is an effort by elites to impose on the rest of us What I think is a totally false vision of reality And you're seeing some of the outcome when you when you send enough signals that the police don't matter and the criminals are okay you end up with these gangs running around smashing up stores And it actually reminds me of Ann Rand's Atlas shrug I mean this whole notion that you have people now who are so alienated that they think it's perfectly all right to go and break into a store and steal whatever they want to And that somehow that's an acceptable behavior And of course you have these big government socialist who preach that until it starts to happen And then they're shocked And never occurred to them that if you let the murderers rapists and bank robbers out of jail that maybe you're going to increase the rate of murders rates and bank clubs and now that's a great shock to them That is amazing that they could shock anybody who was an adult with at least a three digit IQ but I know I saw on social media and it wasn't a pretty picture but nonetheless I did certainly see the monumental irony a looters who were looting other looters that is as they people who had just robbed a store and then they were having it torn away from them by other looters You know.

What Will Be Left of the BBB Bill Before Passage?

"Jake, I spent Sunday after the crowded dispersed reading build back better the House version. I mean, I'm at page 800 now, taking notes. I've gotten two columns out of it. I could write columns forever. It's the most absurd thing, including my Washington Post column this morning is about $3 billion in equity, which is up to Tom vilsack. A canny politician who has run for president before to distribute if it gets to the Senate. How much are they gonna carve out of this in the Senate? Salt deduction of tree equity, a 122 billion for homeless funding. What's going to go? So that's a good question. I think the major things that's going to go through are not those things. I think the major things that are going to go are the big things that mansion does not like. I mean, Pelosi has basically indicated if you listen, you read between the lines that the bill is pretty much set besides for some of these big provisions which are obviously huge and quite influential that mansion is going to have problems with. So that includes expansion of Medicare, paid leave provisions, the stuff. I think the rest of it, the small stuff that people will pick at and will be kind of the stars of election season ads are going to stay. That's just my

"Well isn't that the story of what I mean honestly Nick this has been the story since Maybe since Trump took first took office but especially since all this COVID madness has hit and that transition of power this has been the story What they're telling us in the media in the left wing media is happening does not match up with what's happening before our very eyes You're right there You didn't see some violent revolution that was going to overthrow the United States government I don't even know how they thought that was going to happen What guy with horns sits in Nancy Pelosi's share and then what Fill in the blanks They are telling a completely different story Yeah like I said most of the people there that I saw were my age or older and what were we armed with like blood pressure medicine and Holy Grail in our sleep apnea machines If you're going to overthrow the government you need some young people okay Maybe a military would help too Maybe But as we start piecing together you know talking to people that were there what we really discovered as we went wrong was that the real story here is what the government is doing to innocent people who really went there and did nothing else Families that have had their doors broken down by the FBI And you know this man that they came after never been arrested for anything Alex and his wife and they treat these people like Pablo Escobar or serial killers or something S.W.A.T. teams humbert vehicles going down a little neighborhood For the streets I mean it's a pulling but the government is doing And the reason they're doing it is to have a chilling effect They're trying to terrorize and demonize Americans who disagree with the leftist agenda and make sure that everybody understands This is what's going to happen to you if you stand up

Park in Pelosi's District Slated to Receive $200M

"So what is the deal? I'm gonna have a column up at The Washington Post shortly on Nancy Pelosi, $200 million for the presidio park. What is the deal with that, Jake? How in the world does someone justify $200 million for your neighborhood park? Well, it is a very nice park, but you're right. I actually have not completely seen how they how in the text it directs the money to the presidio park, whether it makes the presidio park eligible for the funds or as you know you, but many people don't know sometimes in the era of note earmarks, sometimes language is written that only makes one entity eligible like it says for parks that include X Y and Z and our of a certain size. But yes, I mean, listen, this is the power of being a congressional leader, right? I mean, we saw how Rogers used to do this when he was the appropriation share used to shuffle lots of money to Kentucky and Shelby Richard Shelby of Alabama does the same thing for Alabama. But you're absolutely right. It's something that people are outraged about.

Democrats Would Rather Pass 'Build Back Better' Bill Than Retain Power

"Now the build back better act has been the bill that you've probably heard bits and pieces discussed for the last couple of weeks and months. The build back better act is one of the largest spending bills an American history. The build back better act is so important to the current Democrat regime that they have decided to make the following bargain. They would rather lose power. And get this bill passed. Their poll numbers are historically low. The popularity for Democrats hasn't been this low in 30 or 40 years. Yet the question that is frustrating and confusing and confounding. So many normal Americans is why don't they care? You see I've had that same question. We've wrestled with that together here on this program. And then this morning I got up, and I asked our team, producer Connor and producer Andrew Andrew did a great job feeling yesterday. I said, what's actually in this bill? Send me the details. Send me the information. And as I got to actually reading, what is in this bill? I have now come to the realization. As to why Pelosi and Schumer are comfortable, satisfied and content with losing power if this bill goes into

Rep. Jim Jordon on Moving Forward After the Events of January 6th

"Welcome back. This is one O one with me Sebastian walker and congressman Jim Jordan. We have to mention it that congressman because it is being used as a political weapon as we speak. We are seeing the creation of this committee to hound a Trump supporters to subpoena his cabinet members, his chief of staff. Will he give us your take on the significance of January 6th and what it means moving forward for the next election in the election after? Well, a little bit. I mean, we all know that what happened on January 6th at the capitol was wrong. And people who did wrong and actually committed crimes should be held accountable and they are. There's been 600 people indicted and they're being prosecuted. So but what I think would have been nice from the other side, from the Democrats, Republicans have been consistent. We have condemned the violence every single time it happened. We condemn it on January 6th and we condemned it in the summer of 2020 when rioters and looters were destroying small businesses were attacking law enforcement harming law enforcement in some cases, they killed law enforcement officer killed police officers, where would the Democrats then? They were setting up a fundraising money to bail these same people out of jail. So it had been nice if they were consistent as far as the committee galves. This select committee, it is a complete political operation. This is not about getting to the truth. This is not about figuring out why the capital didn't have the proper security posture that day that important day as Ruth Bader Ginsburg said is the ultimate date of significance in a presidential election process. So why it wasn't properly protected only Nancy Pelosi get answer that. But this thing is political and if they persist if they actually force and go after the chief of staff to the president of the United States, if they go after Mark Meadows, and they cross this line that hasn't been crossed before and pursue this and hold Mark Meadows in some kind of crazy criminal contempt. If they do that, it's unprecedented. I think it's dangerous for our country, but if they cross that line, there's a lot of people we're going to want to talk to if and when we get back in the

Should the Republican Party Have a Contract With America?

The Charlie Kirk Show

Should the Republican Party Have a Contract With America?

"So mister speaker, something, I don't quite understand and kind of I think stumbled into this is why Republicans do not continually embrace the sort of very specific clear and transparent contract with America that you led with in the 90s. If there were to be a contract with America today, for this next election in 2022, what would it be? Educational choice, parental rights. Why is it that Republicans just seem to not be able to get out of their own way when it comes to this? Well, look, I think there's an old tradition in the Republican Party, particularly among the country club Republicans that they're better than that. They don't get their hands dirty with those kind of issues. And I think part of what Trump did was he broke loose both the basically anti confrontation Republicans who dislike Trump and became known for trumpers. And he broke loose. The blue collar workers of every ethnic background. I remember Trump in 2020, got a higher percentage of the minority vote than any Republican in 60 years. And that's because he was willing to take on and talk very bluntly and candidly about people who have radical views and want to profoundly change America. Now I think and this is where I think Glenn young can maybe a very important figure in American history. Young and could be a natural sort of establishment Republican. He's very successful economically. He was the co chair of the Carl group, which was the largest investment group in the middle Atlantic. But he found that the hunger was to take on the left on their local values. And he was smart enough to respond and realize as a leader that he'd have a lot bigger army if he was prepared to roll up his sleeves and get in the middle of that fight. And I would say for next year, first of all, for the first time since 1994, I now advocate that we do have a contract with America, both next year and again in 2024. And I would say that education issues have to be at the center

Speaker Newt Gingrich Describes Where the GOP Should Focus Its Attention

"There is this ongoing debate. And I would love your take on it of how much do we talk about of things that happened, like the 2020 election? How much do we focus on things that need to be done? And then how much do we focus on things that are currently happening such as the Biden regime? You're making the argument that we need to have a little bit more of a forward thinking approach. Obviously not discounting, you know, things that happen previously. What's the correct balance in that sense? Well, I think other than stipulating that the 2020 election was raped, where we have a brilliant book by Hemingway and entitled rigs. So it's pretty straightforward. I think we need election reforms overwhelmingly the American people want you to prove who you are. They want the votes to be honest and accurate. And then we're seeing in most of the Republican states serious methodical election reforms to get to honor selections where everybody gets to vote, but we know who they are. We know they're legally a citizen. We know they're allowed to do it. Then I think I was sort of argue for a two step process. Inflation is terrible and is a natural consequence of big government socialism. And therefore, here's what we would do about it. The border being uncontrolled as a disaster. And therefore, here's what we would do about it. So I think as always, it should always be a one punch of them, and then an open hand offering a better future on our side. And I think if we do that, then when we do win and I think we're going to win big next year and even bigger in

Speaker Newt Gingrich on His New Book 'Beyond Biden'

"Show with us today. He's a legend of the conservative movement and one of the wisest smartest people I think in the entire country. Speaker gingrich, who has a new book out that I encourage everyone to purchase beyond Biden is the book rebuilding the America we love mister speaker. Welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Tell us a little bit about this book. But first of all, it's always going to be with you and you do an amazing show. When I sat down and tried to decide on my next book, I decided not to do an anti Biden book, which obviously would have been pretty popular. At least some of our folks. Because I thought Biden himself would prove to be sufficiently anti Biden, and that's exactly what's been happening. But I always concerned about the country. One of the things that when Republicans get back in charge, they should focus on because it's not enough to just be anti. We have a real competitor with China, which is I think a genuine danger to eliminating our freedom and our independence. We have great challenges in our inner cities both from crime, and in education. We have a huge challenge on the border with illegal immigration. You're down the list. And so I wanted to write a book that was beyond just being anti Biden. And that really talked about, this is the kind of stuff we're going to have to do. We got a roller seas up. If we're going to be successful as a country. And I absolutely think we have to think in terms of modernizing America. We have very old bureaucracies that are based on the industrial era. They don't work very well. And that includes The Pentagon, which we just saw in Afghanistan. It includes NASA, which has had a particularly large project that is absurdly overpriced to them actually that are extraordinary over budget and over time. It includes all the major bureaucracies in Washington. And from them, parallel bureaucracies at the state and local level. So we have a lot to do.

Sebastian Asks Rep. Claudia Tenney 'Are We Winning?'

"Welcome back to one on one with none other than congresswoman Claudia tenney. Claudia. Let me blow your trumpet politely. When you came in into the studio earlier today, you know, we get politicians in the studio. You know, the good guys and good girls come in here. And the remarkable thing about them, especially in your cases, you come in, I say, would you like a coffee would like anything last? And then I got out of the studio to get you a bottle of water. And I'm looking everywhere in the green room. Where's her retinue? Where's her entourage? Is a member of Congress. Where are the Strata? Where are the PR people? And there's nobody. So this just reinforces for me why you're the best example of what we need in America, not career politicians, like Nancy like charcot who have been around for decades, but people who see themselves as Americans representing their fellow Americans, I'm going to ask you the question I asked all of the good guys and gals. Are we winning? Is that side? Is it burgeoning? Is it growing? You know, the freedom caucus the people who don't want to say this way. I went to the members dining room to have lunch with a couple of supreme caucus people. And I asked them, is it as bad on the inside as I think it is from the outside? And one of them said, you know, the trouble is even in the GOP, 30, 40% of us, they just want the job. They want the chairmanship with the chauffeur driven limo and they want the office with the fireplace. You do not represent that to me. So who's winning? Who's in the driving seat? What's the power relationship between The Old Guard and the citizen politicians like you? You know, it's a tough crowd. I'll tell you it's a funny story. Look at I had to fight against the establishment in both parties just to get elected to the state assembly. I had to defeat the county chairman. Wow. And so they were all working against me. And they always have. I never got endorsed by our local party. The Republican Party, running for office ever until after I was elected to Congress. So you won without any endorsement. No, I had to run a primary had to put my own team together, so I know what it's like to be, you know, I'm also a lawyer or a business owner. I know what it's like to, but I'm trying to do, I'm trying to stand for our country and stand for our small business community and what we need to do. I don't see myself as part of a group or other than I want to represent my constituents. I'll tell you funny stories. When I first got into the state assembly, I remember this old time assembly member who had here I am coming from the private sector. I don't know what pensions are. I don't know any of this stuff. And you know, I'm all worried. I could care less if I, you know, use a folding chair and have a folding table. I mean, it doesn't really matter any of that stuff. And so this one person came up and said, oh, I can't believe, you know, we were minority members, Republicans, and the Democrats were in the majority, and they said, did you see the Democrats got all new mahogany deaths to new computers? And we should have mahogany desk. I'm like, no, you shouldn't have a haggy desk. We don't need that stuff. We need to govern. We need to understand the taxpayers. And I love the Jeffersonian idea. I mean, we are not supposed to be doing these jobs forever, which is why one of my first bills when I got into the assembly was, let's take all the politicians who are elected and appointed off of the pension system and put them in a 401k case to system because if you're going to serve and you want to you shouldn't have to leave and not be able to at least contribute to your own retirement, because I was really these non contributory pensions and then and of course that was not met with much approval. An old friend of mine, Mike Fitzpatrick, Fitzpatrick and the assembly. He was part of it, too. You know, what are we doing? How are we in a position where we're benefiting from something we're

NY Rep. Claudia Tenney Shares Her Backstory and Connection to the Former Yugoslavia

"First welcome back to our one on one end studio in discussion with New York's congresswoman Claudia teddy. For those who aren't familiar with your backstory. I didn't even know it until you came in today. You said you mentioned my book, and then you said you sold me on TV and you bought my book, which talks about my parents who escaped Hungary under communism and then mentions what was happening next door in Yugoslavia. Share with us who aren't familiar or who aren't from your district, your connection to the Balkans in the Eastern Europe. I'm not of Yugoslavia in descent or Balkan descent, but I did actually see you and I said, oh, look, you know, because one of my jobs when I worked at the former Yugoslav consulate, which is obviously gone because of the war. We're still look for people in the Balkans, people in the region, and I just, you know, anyone with a sort of the accident, even though Hungarian is not similar to several creations to different route language, I just said, oh, who's this guy? Oh, he's talking about hungry. Interesting because of all that was happening and Yugoslavia being so unique, technically not behind the iron curtain. Tito was able to keep him out of the common form. So I went to Yugoslavia as a student in 1981, 40 years ago, just for a study group and ended up falling in love with the place to just so diverse and interesting and continued to stay there. Work for the consulate worked on the Olympics in Sarajevo in 1984. Learn the language, you know, just continue to go back and then obviously through the war, it was a tough time for me. I had friends from every part of the country, the former years of everywhere. Because we all worked in the consulate together, and so that's been my connection and just living in a country that was communist and then seeing the transformation since the war and them trying to emerge as a market economy, and reading your book where you hear about you're talking about some of the things that happened and how a lot of Hungarians were trying to cross through Yugoslavia and get to freedom and how Tito basically turned them in. And they read the benevolent dictator who was Marshall, Joseph pizza, right? Right, yeah, so called benevolent dictator, and that's where I, you know, I think we're on this moment in American history where people should learn that when they say we have communism we've never just done it quite right, and we had a benevolent dictator in Tito, not a benevolent dictator. Tito had a dissident camp where people were tortured and killed on a barren island in the Adriatic Sea. So it's all these communists. And he played and he played the nationalities. Right. Slovenes vice the Croatians, the Croatians versus the Serbs. Yeah, and technically he was Croatian, but first and foremost he was a communist. Right. He was able to bridge the gap and keep an allied relationship with the Americans and with kind of keeping everyone at bay to maintain this sort of artificial union of these countries and Yugoslavia, which wants Tito died. You know, they devolved into war within about ten

"And we are delighted to have with us somebody who I don't even want to call her a politician because she is and every time she comes on the show every time we see her speak, it's like an American. It is a citizen and that's what we need more of. Representing the 22nd congressional district of New York, congresswoman Claudia, welcome to one on one. Well, thank you for thank you for that great introduction. It's an honor to be on, of course. We have so much to discuss, especially we're going to talk about what a zuckerbuck is and your special, yes, your election integrity efforts will discuss that just give me lots of like a box. We'll talk about what is happening to the economy. We'll talk about recent events in D.C.. But first things first, tell us a little bit about your take as a mother of a marine as somebody who is deeply vested in the security of this nation. I want people not to forget what happened just barely a couple of months ago in Kabul. Give us your take from the inside from a member of the political elite of the last ten months of national security leadership in this nation. Yeah, let me just first say my deepest condolences to those families on the death of those 13 service members and women two women were also killed. Needlessly, we honor our gold star families, we actually did a vigil in my community to honor those 13 that were killed in August. And we also honored our gold star families from the latest wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Nothing is more. Nothing more painful than to see service members killed in action, especially in a situation which shouldn't have happened. And that is why it's so tragic to watch. This whole I can't express how sad it was to see that that it actually happened. But we saw the chaos, developing on the ground, each day got worse, as Biden put forth his mission to remember how it started. And I remember the first committee. He said, I want to move out of Afghanistan and pull all our troops out on September 11th because it was symbolic day. Yeah, he wanted that photograph. He wanted that sound. I told that us out of Afghanistan. Is if the mission were not to advance freedom to ensure the safety and security of America, to protect our foreign assets, there are bases 85 billion in change of equipment left there with our enemy the Taliban to leave them to take back over and not understanding the callousness of President Biden to not see how devastating that was, especially to a New

You know, the evil, the evil doers. Those of us creeps who've had some financial success in life. We're the bad. We need to be punished. Although not Pelosi, she here, she pushed back on the capital gains, tax increase. She didn't like that. She's a wealthy, wealthy woman. But anyway, it turns out the nonpartisan tax policy center has taken a look at build back better. They're saying about 30% of middle class middle income households will be taxed and pay additional taxes have a tax increase in 2022 whoops. No. Shaders and so Joe, say it isn't so. Come on. Come on, man. Did you lie to us again? Did you not tell the truth? And some low and middle class and middle income households, according to the nonpartisan tax policy center, which has reviewed build back better, they will pay more per year in taxes if the plan is

We're going to watch the climate change summit carry on through spring of 2023. Listen to what she said yesterday about the question is America back. Under Joe Biden, I'm not kidding you. This is a serious question from a CNN international reporter. Is America back listen to the Hutch but it takes for Nancy Pelosi to give the answer she gave. America is back our president was here. He had there were many successes that were achieved in collaboration, not dictation or condescension, but in collaboration with other countries, many of whom were ahead of us because we had, of course, the dark period of four years preceding the president's administration Biden's administration coming in. Can you imagine? The dark period of four. Now that's. Yeah, that dark period. Because nothing screams dark period like America gaining 7 million new jobs more than three times the government experts predictions, jobless claims of the 50 year low, unemployment for women hit its lowest rate in nearly 70 years.

How Truck Driver Ed Durr Defeated New Jersey's Most Powerful Lawmaker

"When I saw the story. Did anyone watch the live stream last night that I was doing? I don't think I've laughed that hard my entire life. When I just saw this, I was flipping through social media and I couldn't control myself when I saw this story of this truck driver from southern New Jersey who spent a 153 total dollars on his campaign. $153. And as of right now, the election is about to be called in certified. He's about to beat the second most powerful person in New Jersey, the head of the Senate presidency in New Jersey by 2000 votes, right? And so and by the way, this is not even about Republican or Democrat. It's not about any of that, right? It's about wait a second time out. Like, what? And so I did some digging into this, right? I was like, okay, who is this guy, right? Is he a son of Jeff Bezos or like, you know, is he part of the Rockefeller family or was he born with some sort of birthright and so you look at this guy and his name is Durer, right? And yeah, you could laugh at the name, whatever, but you look into it. It's like if you were to have central casting of like what the normal American was. Now, some of you guys might not remember the 2000 was it 16 or 2012 president presidential debates of that guy that wore that like red sweater? Do you remember that? Then bone, right? Thank you. Guys, remember that, maybe not as before your time. It's like, I just want to give that guy a hug, right? He's just wants what's right for the world. So few people like that anymore. It seems in public life. And so this guy Eddie decides to do the ultimate David and Goliath type exercise. Now, I don't know how I'm gonna do my best to describe this to you. The guy he was running against is the head of the Senate of New Jersey, okay? It's untouchable. An example would be like if a random candidate decided to run up against Chuck Schumer, okay? That's just or a random candidate would just be like, I'm gonna run against Nancy Pelosi. This guy runs the state of New Jersey. Now, he was to give an idea, he's been an elected office since 2004. Some of you were born in 2004, okay? I know I know that because I actually just talked to someone that was literally born in 2006, not even born. And so this guy has run the state of New Jersey. He runs the entire political apparatus and machine. And so when you start to look into it, you're like, all right, how did this guy make it happen? So you look at his campaign receipts are like, did he get a big contribution from the pharmaceutical companies? Spend a $153, $85 of which was spent at Dunkin Donuts. And the remaining $70 was spent on flyers and materials and so they said, what was your grand strategy? He's like, I just kind of showed up and asked people for their vote. And so he was conducted in an interview last night. The first thing he said is like, I have no idea what's going on, right? The first thing he says, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn express last night, but no, I'm kidding. But all of a sudden you read deeper into this and this is an important thing is he ran because he was so disgusted and he was so upset that he is a truck driver continually kept this economy opening and keep going and he just felt continually insulted by the people in charge.

The Ruling Class Has Become So Disconnected From the 'Muscular' Class

"So there's two types of economic classes in America. And by the way, one is not necessarily better than the other, right? There's the muscular class, and then there's the zoom and Skype class, right? So I'm part of the zoom in Skype class, okay? That doesn't make me a better person. It just so happens. I was able to keep on doing my work in the midst of the lockdown without having to lift boxes or wear a mask all day long. But the people that actually run the country, which I think never got the credit they deserved quite honestly during the pandemic, are the people that worked at the Amazon fulfillment centers. The people that are police officers, the people that are our firefighters, the people that actually drove trucks and instead, you saw this growing disconnect of the people in charge, have this arrogance and this attitude almost as top down revolution like, oh, you work with your hands, you don't have a doctorate from Harvard, your DOM and your stupid, right? And so but we saw this bubbling up in a variety of different ways. And for those of us that look at the stuff really closely and are worried about these trends, we said, this is not sustainable. You can't declare war on the people that actually make your country run and act as if there won't be a backlash against that, right? It's like a steep on serving me food serfs and servants. And we'd always make jokes about it, you know when Nancy Pelosi would be out in Napa Valley and all of her donor Friends were maskless, right? And every single person serving food outdoors were wearing masks, right? And we saw that whether Obama's birthday party in Martha's Vineyard where, you know, we had to kind of watch all the videos of people that had to wear masks or masks, but they were a sophisticated vaccinated crowd. And we saw that some people call double standards or hypocrisy, it's not. It's hierarchy. It's people in charge I think they're actually better than you. So hypocrisy is like if you actually believe the rule or you say it and you do something else, these are people that actually think they're at a different level of

"That's that's definitely true. But i think one thing that the outcry about the only fans decision and that led to its reversal reminded me of like. Oh like sex work has also been changed by cove. It like now it now that it can be done. Virtually no that. It's calm normalized that you know. Sexual performance sexual sexually explicit content can be delivered virtually and people will pay for it like that feels like a positive like a move in a positive direction for sex workers who are oftentimes you know. They're they're part of the population that is more victimized by physical violence than other parts of the population and part of that is because when they're in person with somebody you know you can't really control what that person does so like. I think that the porn industry was also disrupted by By covert. And i think for the better i hope for the better i agree. I think as more power in the hands of the individual and less at the hands of institutions that can exploit people the internet. I hate when people say the internet isn't real life because it is but it does remove physical bear. It creates a physical barrier to violence that that pervades against sex workers. So i think that the internet has been really helpful in that respect. I know people who about their house and bought a house with the cash that they made up of only fans or you know when work was scarce or we're able to pay all of their bills an altered form of of income. That was that was really supplementary now. Full so i saw actually. That only fans had initially made the decision because banks were making noise about not wanting to process payments made to sex workers and it just yeah it just seemed just very. I mean it banks. Yes those people. Those people who have never patronized sex workers workers the people who are known for their morality. Upstanding the the people who are not from movies like wall street. I think like a million. Sex workers have done less harm to the world than ten bankers. Honestly a billion sex workers have done less harm to the world than ten bankers But also you know. I was thinking this is a great example of like you know these are individuals who are commodifying their own bodies and it's sort of like i feel like sometimes there's a real prudish resistance to women commodifying anything that male lead organizations and institutions are used to being able to modify like women are supposed to be giving the stuff away for free like there's a there's a poster in This in the workspace that i go to. There's a poster in the bathroom that said like the female lead food revolution. And i was like bitch. What do you mean like the entire world is the female lead food revolution. You know like women are the ones that cook were just expected to give it away for free so the revolution is women. Commodifying something that we are expected to give away. It also feels like it's like when men get uncomfortable because then women themselves aren't the commodity like a brand like hooters where it obviously as commodifying women sexuality but in a patriarchal male dominated business structure where it's like four the male gaze in men are profiting from it primarily. No men ever have a problem with that Like men never have a problem with women as the object. They only ever have a problem when then they get the pesky reminder that women are actually behind the big boobs that's us..

"Like texas and. florida have exploded. You know so you know. Maybe you could have bought a house for because the cost of living is different in different places. So you're coming in from new york and you're like oh my goodness. These houses in florida are so cheap that makes the houses go up if enough people do that in that area and it it affects people in the area too and like what they're able to get. I think austin dallas like all of those places. The the markets have exploded in the prices might aunt does real estate and so she was saying. Oh yeah the prices went by like one hundred grand like a house went from three hundred to four hundred grand just like in the time of covert and i was like. That's just wild like it's it's it's wild. Airbnb is distortion of the housing market. I think needs to be held accountable. i mean airbnb just began as a way for individuals. Make extra money like by renting out some like you know an extra bedroom may had and it was sort of a casual thing and it became so institutionalized that people aren't renting or selling apartment buildings because they're just using them for airbnb more profitable and that's a really screwed up bubble. That's ruining a lot of what should and could be liveable cities. He's an amazing. The way that like something has an intention and then something and then something else happens. That's like so fucked up that you wouldn't have thought about 'cause people's brains like work in that way you know like i did just always blows my mind that like you. Just somebody goes into it and was like oh you can rent out your garage. And it's like a now. It changes the entire market and has this tidal wave ripple effect and all other shaped like mickey mouse in the sorcerer's apprentice. He likes starts out with the and then all of a sudden it is way out of hand he's broom. These brooms are scary too. Little aaron and she will run out of the room when the brooms get too scary But no it's it's a total lake on. Like i feel like almost every little germ of an idea explodes into something like the ones that explode explode into something that accomplishes the opposite of what the germ of the idea did and sometimes and sometimes that's kind of funny like airbnb is like. Oh this is a way to like loosen up the hotel market and make it more portable and allow people to like integrate into the neighborhood. But really what it's doing is like eliminating the character of neighborhoods by making it impossible for like with a rental. It's like removing the fluidity from the rental market..

"Story. the covert story in in southern states. So here is you know alabama mississippi texas florida. I'm an arkansas. I've heard and possibly missouri there. Are there facing issues with a shortage of beds in. Icu us People who have non cova related problems are having to wait a really long time to get into hospitals because hospitals are clogged up with people who not only have covert but they have covert and did not get a vaccine. That was widely available free. So we've talked about this before. I have run out of real patients for this. This is causing systemic problems that affect i mean covert patients. Don't under people who will not get. The co vaccine seemed to not understand that they their actions affect other people regardless of whether or not they want them to like. There is no living in a fantasy world. Where you just get to do whatever you want. And that doesn't affect other people and like they seem to they like don't make the connection like oh like if i cough an someone catches a germ that affects other thing. But here's something. I was thinking about so southern states. Texas mississippi arkansas alabama etc. A lot of times. You see laws kind matriculating. Through those state houses that would allow medical practitioners to invoke conscience clauses into not provide care for people. These laws are made specifically with abortion and birth control in my Pharmacists have the right in some places to legally like not prescribe or give out like plan b. because they don't agree with it which is like i. I think those laws are crazy. But here's something that. I was wondering could a state with conscience clauses on the books could a doctor working in that state be like. I'm just not going to accept any more kovic patients for who are unvaccinated into my hospital. Because it's against my beliefs. That is a half joking question. But i seriously wonder. Wait but aaron. Is it really like it. Kind of makes total sense. I mean it makes total sense that it could be applied in that instance right. I mean why not. Why not. and it's more like it's like based in fact than belief in that that plan. B causes abortion because plan be medically does not cause abortion act as an anon- fact that people are basing actions on but not getting the vaccine causes serious covert which causes. Hospital backups is something that is backed backed up by actual fact which also you know. This is the drum. I like to be weekly. Is that not only that. But also these people who won't get vaccinated continue to spread the virus and if you didn't believe it before guess what the delta marion is way fucking worse than original cova nineteen so if keeps spreading chances are bit delta plus.

You know all of these there needs are always the ones that everyone feels like. It's fine to bargain away Because i don't think those people are necessarily the ones that are giving the most money or writing the biggest checks to the people that are casting the votes and as cynical as that sounds I'm saying that to make a point about where we are right now because we have people like paul of washington have people like i on a presley of massachusetts who are absolutely like latched onto this and will not let go like they the fact that the that policy changes that benefit women and families and people who are among the most vulnerable economically the fact that their priorities are not on the chopping block in not be because there are people who are in office right now who are just like that is not going to happen if i find that very encouraging and maybe i haven't been paying enough attention up until you know the last ten years but i don't think i don't think i've seen this level of public commitment from so many powerful politicians before and i find that i find that very encouraging i agree i agree.

I feel hopeful that you know. The revolutionary changes that are being proposed by the biden administration. Like this is the chance to get them done and listeners. I wanna i wanna put this out there. If this matters to you now is the time to speak up about it. And not just like writing letters and calling your congressperson.

You know if you have friends that have had a hard time getting leave when they had a baby or they have aging parents or they have any need that is among the needs. That democrats have promised to address in this package. Like talk to your friends and get them excited about this and get them communicating with their elected representatives in their friends because if people are paying close enough attention there is no way this fails that is true in aaron while we are talking about it.

"Was a little nervous about it when at the beginning of the week. A group of ten moderate democrats who call themselves the problem solvers caucus but really could call themselves. The problem seen only problem. They have ever. Salt are open slots on cnbc lake. That is the extent to be quite honest. Yes so the problem caucus rodent op-ed i think in the washington post about how heroic they were for for demanding that infrastructure with the care. Part of the biden plan teased out should be passed on. Its own anyway They all fell in line on tuesday. They all voted for the three point. Five trillion dollar budget reconciliation package. That pelosi needed them to four and So now that's advancing and now pelosi is also pledged to vote for the separate infrastructure. Bill they have promised to vote for by september twenty seventh which means that we now have like a kind of good idea for a timeline for when this is either going to get done or not or not yet so elissa. What do you make of the events of tuesday that happened in congress. And are you optimistic that this is actually gonna happen. I mean the events of tuesday were just to quote to quote. the movie. saint saint almost fire. They were greeted. Melodrama i mean. This was like not necessary. The democrats like like if democrats are in power and they're not going to govern like their empower. I mean like we the senate. The house Residency. like what are we doing. Which i think was the source of a lot of the yelling at the closed door caucus meeting yesterday. When i think it was reported that steny hoyer said that what the problem solvers caucus was doing was mutually self assured destruction. So look this is a budget blueprint. That they voted on. So they still have to figure out the actual budget of this three point five trillion dollar plan. And that's gonna take a lot of work that's gonna take a lot of work. It brings our friends. Joe manchin and Senator cinema back into the fold. And i think we know it's gonna take a lot but i think that we got this far. It's still it's still shows and continues to demonstrate that Nancy pelosi when she wants something she usually figures out a way to get it done the. I hope just having double chocolate ice cream for breakfast this morning. This if she didn't have it with a side of brownies. I don't know who has deserved it more. But you know the whole thing the whole problem solvers caucus. It was essentially a tantrum. The day through and i guess what they got for. It was sort of date certain in theory non-binding of voting on september. Twenty seven so. We'll see you one thing that i have been keeping an eye on that i enjoy. Seeing is the fact that bernie sanders budget chairman in the senate has been out like hitting the ground selling this plan and trying to explain to people in trump districts in democratic districts. Why it's so important. And i think that that is something that the democrats really have to get right in. The next couple of weeks is explaining to the american people that literally. This helps every single person like like we have to wipe donald trump from our brain where he literally only tried to pass bills that that impacted impacted people who voted for him. This will help everybody and democrats have to do a really good job of making that clear. And i think another thing that i've seen in this whole process it's really encouraging is in the past. I think when there are these big ideas that are bandied about on capitol hill..

"Seventy seven says for those who understand afghanistan forever need to be asked. How are we going to pay for. It never asked not once by the mainstream media. Because they're not doing news they're doing compliance. We come back from the break. We'll tell you how the media is gas lighting you on the infrastructure bill and the budget bill so stick around you. Don't wanna miss the details on that. Typ jenkin with you. Lots of news all right. Well the media is reporting that house speaker. Nancy pelosi has secured a win afford the three point five trillion dollar budget reconciliation. Bill that includes much of what was stripped. Out of the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill all those provisions that are meant to help ordinary americans. Well it turns out that that's not the case and the framing of that is is essentially gas lighting the american people. So i'm gonna go to the last graphic here to give you a sense of how this has all gone down now breaking house votes. Two hundred twenty two two hundred twelve to pass the rule to one begin. Writing biden's three point five trillion dollar budget reconciliation package right guarantee a vote on the senate approved. The senate already voted on the five hundred fifty billion dollar infrastructure bill. That's the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill by september twenty seventh and the number three vote on the john. Lewis voting rights bill for the purposes of this discussion. Let's focus on the back and in regard to the infrastructure. Bill and the reconciliation bill. Now as i mentioned the bipartisan. Bill has already passed the senate. The corporate democrats conservative democrats in the house are like. We're not going to agree to play ball on the three point five. Trillion dollar reconciliation. Bill until we get a promise that there will be a vote on the bipartisan. Bill that gives all the goodies to our corporate donors by september. Twenty seventh and guess what. Nancy pelosi agreed to that meeting. They will hold a vote on the bipartisan bill. On that date. How is this a win for the three point five. Trillion dollar reconciliation bill. Which is the bill that we need to get past. They haven't even written it yet. So if they guarantee a vote on september. Twenty seventh on the corporate handout. Bill which the bipartisan bill. And let's say it passes the house and it's already passed the senate and ends up on binds desk. They sign that into law. It's over it's over so look guys there's nuance here. we'll get. We'll do that as well. But this appears to be a giant nothingburger. And i feel like even good progresses have been tricked into thinking something was actually passed just because of the massive nuclear level gas lighting. That's happening establishment as we speak so christine pelosi. Nancy pelosi is daughter. Put out a tweet saying she landed the plane. Now i'm seeing all over twitter. Shaved from other influencers powerful people etc. She landed the place. Where's the plane. So i look. Let's break it down. So here's the new us. John lewis bill okay. Great we're super happy to have it but was that in question in the house. Was there any monsters and the democratic side that was there. Were thinking of not voting for the louis bill that it's about voting rights if there were named their names i'd like to know because every democrat pretends to be in favor of it so the john lewis bill is is great but every democrat was gonna vote ford. So is that an accomplished for nancy. Pelosi he no not at all. I mean bragging about that is ridiculous. You also breathe oxygen. Today i mean this is what we're bragging about. No that can't be obviously that's not right and if it is it again named democrats who were opposed to it because we'd really like to know. Okay no then you move to the two bills. Well the everybody's acting like they pass three and a half trillion dollar bill. It's not even written. How could it be passed if it's not written. It's just a trick that's all it is saying. Oh we're going to work on it. You know what that means nothing. Nada could've work on. Okay congratulations work on it and then when you pass it let me know. They're acting like she just got the king to agree to the magnet car. What are you talking about. So the only concrete thing in the bill is the date to vote on the awful version. Yes and so now when they get up to september twenty seven. Now here's another part of the new us progressives like say hey look we said there'd be a vote on september twenty seven. We didn't say that we'd vote. Yes that's fair and that's true and that's good and i hope that they hold to that but i watched baltics a longtime. I guarantee you what's going to happen. September twenty seven th year using the three and a half trillion dollar. Bill will be written and voted out already in the house. I put that at about a two percent chance recess. They're they're not gonna do that. Would be record breaking speed. They claim some source claiming they will have it done by september. Fifteen on which planet. Okay so hey if they do and they vote on it before. September twenty seven th then we turn right back around because this isn't about teams and partnerships and being right etcetera. It's about what's true if they turn around and get that bill done before september. Twenty seven to three and a half trillion dollar one and pass it that. I'm ready to give all the credit in the world that i'll say she landed appoint right but right now. That's nothing but when september twenty seven to come up everyone is going to start saying. Oh progressives you said you say you were born for remember. We talked about landing the plane. And now you're gonna vote against the meccan cora these muster progressives low for both for the republican version. That's i guarantee you that's what's going to happen. It's so this is actually counterproductive. It's counterproductive it is. It is counterproductive. And i think it's even worse than what we're we've already described because again. Remember the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill has already passed in the senate so if they hold that vote on september twenty seven th and let's say progressive cave and they let that bill pass it's over. There is no reconciliation bill yet right so like my point is nothing in regard to the reconciliation budget like has passed in the senate yet like they had a procedural vote on it but we still have to deal with cinema. You still have to deal with mansion. You have to deal with the corporate democrats in the senate as well. So let's say the house. Let's say nancy pelosi Do you know does stand her ground right and ensures that they have a three point five trillion dollar budget bill ready to go and they vote on both bills on that same day in both bills pass on that same day the three point five trillion dollar bills still needs to pass in the senate as well so no is. This is kind of disastrous. When you can't stand the media. i can't stand the mainstream media anymore. lie after lie after lie. Total alternate reality. and they're tricking. Good people thinking it actually passed it. Didn't pass at all. It's fun even miles from passing so look guys againist one more time when we have.

"But it looks like this may be her last raw Getting this through. So she is very different interests from a democrat in some of those swing districts that's beginning or at the middle of their career and in who want to continue in their seat. You know for her. It's largely done. She'll get the credit and these guys may be holding the bag and i. I think that you know. Mrs pelosi knows well. This is the last chance the last gas to do something big in the house because she's not likely to retain her majority in the mid terms. I mean it's historically unlikely anyway even apart from the mistakes that joe biden has been making so I think there's a big conflict of interest between some of those people who are younger and mrs pelosi. Who's a lot older on her way out. One last little point here about timing There's another reason that. Nancy pelosi is pushing so hard to get this done this week and that is the democrats are increasingly worried about the white house's approval rating in the country. You know there's a very old Kind of mantra in washington or rule as it were that you know when your president is popular is dangerous for you to vote against him but when you're president is unpopular it is dangerous for you to vote for him and so there's a big worry at we're seeing joe biden's poll numbers drop. We're seeing afghanistan grow into an even bigger mess. And i think pelosi is very very concerned that if this gets pushed off to the end of august that the will among her party members will have really dissipated to go along with hugh spending blowout but kim where do you come down on this question of how much pelosi really cares about the political ramifications in twenty twenty two. I mean the president's party we all know at ch. Tens generally loses seats during the mid terms and binds approval rating is now two points underwater according to the realclearpolitics average and republicans. I'll throw in here. Also are in pretty good position for the redistricting after the census with the new census data and so two bills argument here. pelosi kency the right that writing on the wall and no. She's probably likely to retire. So i mean this her incentive to push through the big bill and They swing district moderates are going to have to deal with that and maybe they'll lose but That's that's the pelosi legacy pulled pelosi has always been willing to sacrifice her moderates..

"The moment. President trump was impeached by the house. The plan was of course for the Senate to hold a quick trial. Get going in early. January had the Senate work five even six days a week to just get it finished asap. Heath the problem was we soon learned was the Senate couldn't begin. The president's been asking is AIDS what Pelosi is up to trying to figure out what the strategy is not without the actual the articles of impeachment in hand and those are effectively controlled by Nancy Pelosi tonight that unexpected holdup house speaker. Nancy Pelosi has not brought the articles of impeachment to the Senate and this evening here she reveals why for the last couple of weeks. We've heard the argument over why she decided to hold onto these articles but last week she began to signal. She's ready to to move forward now if she does send them over to the Senate this could once again. Go into hyper drive. We could be looking at a trial this week and throughout the day yesterday the mere thought of this trial seemed to make president trump furious president trump firing off several impeachment related. tweet Sunday one reading quote. Why should I have the stigma of impeachment attached attached to my name? What I did nothing wrong at another suggesting that the Senate trial should be called off entirely? Remember at one point president trump said he wanted to hear from witness after witness or they could exonerate him. Let's bring in. ABC's David Right now. WHO's at the White House and ABC's and Flaherty who's covered the INS and outs of impeachment since it started so David? Let's start with you. Are we going to see a trial here or not not clear what happens next. We do know that. Nancy Pelosi plans on Tuesday to have a caucus with the Democrats and and they will discuss impeachment after that she has led us to believe that There will be a resolution appointing managers for an impeachment trial and the full House will vote to transmit the articles of impeachment over to the Senate. What happens there is a matter of some dispute at this point joining me now to discuss my open? More is president. Trump's attorney and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani. There's been some suggestions from the president's corner that the Senate could simply dismiss the case the immediate remedy before the Supreme Court of the United States and have it declared unconstitutional. That they would ask chief justice John Roberts who will be Presiding siding over the over the Senate trial that to dismiss the charges because they claimed their unconstitutional. You're if he's the judge the defense lawyers going up to the judge and thing I know he was charged but come on let him off right here right according to Giuliani that the crimes that he's accused of crimes can't find it under common law. You can't find it. In with Wanian law it doesn't exist as crimes and therefore should be thrown out not clear that Chief Justice Roberts will see it that way. In all likelihood likelihood he will follow Justice Rehnquist's example from the Clinton impeachment. Doing more by doing less. We'll so and flaherty. Nancy Pelosi said she would not transmit these articles without some concessions. She didn't seem to get many concessions. So did Nancy Pelosi Cave so speaker. Pelosi did essentially cave. She had insisted insisted that she wanted to see the trial rules before she sent over the impeachment articles. I was not prepared to put the managers and that bill yet because we don't know the arena that we are in. She never got to see though she never got a promise that she was going to get witnesses in the Senate trial leader. McConnell didn't budge on witnesses at all he's not promised he will. I think that he will be accountable to American American people for that speaker. Pelosi is now sitting on the articles. She climbed were so very urgent. So Republicans are saying look. You're playing politics. This is clearly political local if you think that President Donald Trump is such a threat to the nation. Then you don't want to wait until the two thousand twenty election so if it is serious and urgent send them over over if it is not. Don't send it over. But essentially what she did was wait. She waited for three whole weeks waiting for the trial rules. That the Senate we're going to put forward and they never put them out there and then in her mind because we've seen other Democrats at this point say. Hey maybe it's time to actually go forward with this. They've backed down because they're they're scared of Nancy. Pelosi did she get anything for Democrats at all or is this just a disaster for the party. Well Brett if you've watched speaker Pelosi in the past couple of years you know that she is very intentional. Channel She's very strategic. Whatever we do we need to be ready when we do it and I do think that impeachment is very divisive place to go in our country entree? She doesn't just take into account how something might play out a few days or even a week from now she thinks about how things are going to play out across months. Maybe they ought offs. Because we're going to go on there and I think what she did here was. She knew that she had House Democratic majority that wanted Donald Trump impeached. which but she didn't have any control over the Senate and how it would play out and I think one thing that could have happened easily was that she would've sent the impeachment articles over They would have done a motion to dismiss and Mitch. McConnell could've in theory had the votes to dismiss the articles and before Americans even got a chance to absorb any of the details the headlines would have flipped from trump and peach to trump acquitted. That's not what she wanted to happen. So what she did was essentially force debate on fairness to me. It means that we have to take that step back from being hand in Glove love with the defense the question of fairness matters because what she can do is force these vulnerable in these moderate Republicans to respond to those questions. I do believe that we should be completely open to calling witnesses and to say well maybe I do want to hear from our witnesses. Maybe we don't have all the information formation that we need we'll so David if Senate Republicans don't want anyone to testify if that's what they decide no-one testifies is that right it would take four. Republicans breaking breaking ranks to force the question of witnesses and interestingly the president even now is talking about an expanded witness list. He said this weekend he wants wants to call Nancy. Pelosi President Clinton allowed witnesses to come forward. President trump has prevented that from happening. Wait for the courts to rule. Because it'll be how. How long do the courts take part? Nancy Pelosi has not given up on the idea of hearing from witnesses and she suggested suggested to George on this week. If the Senate doesn't call people like say former National Security Advisor John both the House move not excluded. It's not excluded house. Still may call him to have testimony. We have confidence in our case that it's impeachable and this president is impeached for life. She says that No matter what. Donald Trump will come out of this thing impeached and that's a stain that he'll he'll never be able to remove fizeau about six seven moves ahead. We'll see if Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell now are able to gain out the headlines from this trial and that trial could get started just days days from now David Wright and flaherty thank you both. Thanks thanks Brad.

"So was this, a stage tantrum? That's the question that I walked into the room and I told. Senator Schumer speaker Pelosi, I wanna do infrastructure. I wanna do it more than you want to do it. I'd be really good at that. That's what I do. But you know what? You can't do it under these circumstances. So get these phony investigations over with the thing, that's amazing about that statement. Is that he says, I want to do it more than you want to do it? He's the one who wants infrastructure more than them. I thought he supposed to take something hostage that the other side wants more anyway, is this. I think he's just can't get his messaging, right. But this is something he's been saying for a long time ever since the November elections that if the Democrats investigated him he would not work with them on any legislation. Now who does that hurt? More politically, we'll have to see, you know, after that Schumer came back to the capital and held up a thirty five page plan that he said he was prepared to hand to the president and I'm out infrastructure around him. Not impeachment about infrastructure, and how to pay for it is what he said, we have actually seen that plan, you know, and Democrats from people who were. Familiar, what with what happened in the room are telling us that the president walked into the cabinet room and didn't shake anybody's hand or sitting his seat? And then he just said he wanted to do infrastructure and trade, but then he said something about Pelosi saying something terrible, about cover up and things went south. So here's another question, though. Why would Nancy Pelosi say something that she had to have known would get under the president's skin right before this meeting? And then that phrase shows up on all the chirons on all the cable channels. First of all, I don't know what was in Nancy Pelosi's head when she says that coupled theories number one at the same time, she's trying to keep your finger in the dike of impeachment and stave off a kind of rebellion among our own members to go forward with that. She also has to acknowledge their incredible frustration with the president. So she aknowledges she agrees with them. He's stonewalling us. He's engaged in a cover up on the other hand, if an I. I think this is maybe over thinking it did she want to get in his head. She seemed to have wanted to in that first meeting, where he ended up taking responsibility for the government shutdown. Did she want to rattle him today or not? I, I don't I don't know yet. It's hard to tell exactly why she would do that. But there are some Democrats who are already complaining that she's talking out of both sides of her mouth, and she has to choose. Is it a cover up, if so impeachments or is it something else? And then if that's the case, a slower process makes more sense, but they want her to pick a side yet. So he then comes out to the rose garden, where I was at the White House and keeps talking about a cover up came here to do a meeting on infrastructure with Democrats, not really thinking they wanted to do infrastructure or anything else other than investigate, and I just saw that Nancy Pelosi just before meeting made a statement that we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover up. Well, it turns out on the most, I think most of you would agree to this. I'm the most transparent president probably in the history of this country and then goes on, and on and on through things that we've heard a lot about, you know, the witch hunt so much money spent on the witch hunt. The Muller investigation saying he's the most transparent ever. But the thing that really stands out and, and Mara already kind of touched on this is the president saying, you know, I'm just not going to work on policy with Democrats until they finish investigating me. This is such a head scratcher because we know that voters don't care about the Muller investigation. They want congress in the White House to work together on things. They care about infrastructure is a bipartisan initiative with support from both parties..

"Right. The problem is you say is that the way this shutdown is has proceeded both speaker Pelosi and President Trump have given. Categorical? Rejections of this. In other words, speaker Pelosi I think was asked is there anything Donald Trump could give you that. You know, there's no basically, not a dollar nothing. Right. And nothing that he could do that would get her to change. And of course, President Trump says he's not going to sign anything for this. Now. I mean, this is this is different from the usual shutdown are people trying to blame the other guy. Right. That's the usual. Logic earlier will last year early last year, we had the Schumer shutdown when he called for it on DACA believe right? Right. And then by Tuesday, I think it started Friday he was crying because its members were abandoned. I just say a couple of things to two points at strike me as one I think Donald Trump may I don't know that he'll win. But I think he may change the combination here in that the wall is his signature issue even more than the other things that he promised, and he shown on trade, for example, that he's willing to take pain. In other words. Not the paint himself. But let other people like on trade the economy the price pay the price for it. So I think he's not like the normal politician that is just a frayed of the I think he's willing to take a lot of pain. I'm not sure MRs Pelosi is willing to take the pain. I'd also say is we we point out both of made categorical statements Trump. I'm not going to sign anything unless I get funding. Mrs Pelosi nine nickel for the wall. However, if deal came along the lines, you suggested, I think that MRs Pelosi could live with that. I don't think she would be punished for it quite and people would say you said not a dime, but should say, yes. But I got the DACA. Whereas if the opposite happened if Donald Trump because of the way, he's laid out its case if he ends up signing something without any significant funding for the wall. I think he's the big loser there. I think his base starts to hell. And I think the opposition becomes in bowling. So I think I think it's not clear. To me who could be the bigger winner. But it seems clear that the way this has been cast that Donald Trump stands to lose more than MRs Pelosi by it by giving in by giving it what do you think him? I agree with that. I was struck this week though, how determined the White House is to make sure that that doesn't necessarily happen. You've seen a change between all of the press conferences at the president has been giving there's been briefings that have been rolled out to members of congress by the department of homeland security chief charissa Nielsen. Apparently, they attempted to actually do such briefing. When congressional leaders came in to the White House to meet with him. And they didn't wanna listen. So instead they made it available to congress. They're trying to win the war here on the the merits that their argument, whatever those merits are. They're talking a lot about drug flow over the border, and the problem of, you know, illegal aliens and border control, and the the complete jam up within the court system, dealing with all the asylum, applications, etc. And. So very much now trying to talk about the policy questions here. And the president understands he has an enormous megaphone. And that's something they're going to have to do because as this drags on. The press is all in on the other side, and they're going to be running. The daily endless drumbeat of stories about all the the people that are not getting paid the federal employees, the national parks that are not being opened and the pressure will really rise on the White House to roll. I think that that pressure will increase on the White House. The no question, though, the speaker Pelosi does face our own pressures one of which is that this is not if she had her druthers the way she would like to start a new congress. The message Senate showdown over over this issue. I think she would much prefer to be able to talk about what she thinks is her main legislative agenda. They gonna pass a so-called transparency and ethics Bill. They would like to move on some of the issues about healthcare and probably minimum wage Bill. Just kind of move that..

"Yeah. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch Mansi Pelosi becomes speaker of the house of representatives for the second time rare and remarkable political achievement bringing in the new democratic majority. What should we expect from the Pelosi congress, and how it deals with Donald Trump President Trump, plus the first task for the new speaker is the partial government shutdown that continues now pushing towards all beginning of its third week. How long is it going to last meeting at the White House on Friday said the both sides had the stalemate continues. Welcome. I'm Paul zhigo with Wall Street Journal here with my colleague, Bill mcgurn hill. Bill Hypo, Kim strassel Hake him Hypo. So let's let's before we get to the shutdown melodrama. Let's get to speaker Pelosi. I. I think that when you think about it. She was it's very rare. I think Sam Rayburn was the last speaker in the sixties he was speaker the sixties to have regained power in fifties. And sixties regain power as speaker the house after losing it. The waste Nancy Pelosi did this week. And she was of course, speaker for four years from two thousand six to two thousand excuse me, two thousand six what's. Yeah. Two thousand six to two thousand ten and now she will have another two years after routing any critics, and and and competition after you recruit it, I think Cam for just being such a formidable political figuring consolidating support. She is a stair no question. When obviously they won back. Over there were a number of Democrats who had outright campaigned said that they would never vote for her for speaker that was a an electoral promise, they made to their voters many of them reneged on that. And in fact, did vote for her and she managed to get that support with minimal having to trade much away at all a kind of a nothing burger promised that she would only serve four years, but the truth is we don't know where things will stand even two years from now and four years for someone that has been around as long as MRs Pelosi is probably more than enough time because people have been talking about how she was, you know, needed to step aside. Anyway, so she didn't pay much there were fifteen members in the end who voted no, they were probably given a pass because some of them did come from districts where they had made that promise, but she came out on top you do. So you're saying that the they will not be found in their car somewhere. Or or their arms will not. But they will not be their bodies will not turn up the Potomac river somewhere down the the line. It's interesting though, that I mean, she did have the leeway to to say that the the fifteen to give the fifteen a pass. But I'll bet you. She remembers that Bill. I don't think she's going to forget those names, and they could be mired in the banking committee lower reaches for many many years. Yeah. I mean, you, and I thought and Kim I think belief from the beginning from the election that she would win speaker do what she needed to do to get elected. And that said, it is interesting to me which won by three votes. I think right. She had the margin. She knew she knew what she needed. And so she let the other people off the hook one of them with my represented, Mikey, Cheryl, you know, who would running in a formerly renew jersey and there so some of the people, However, I do wonder if. That's a problem for you know, when she was speaker last time, it was clear she was going to be around for a long time. When people think of boss is not going to be there for a long time. It it might make for a little more difficulty in the ranks. Well, but later on when it comes to certain thing. It's interesting though, she had the first challenge she received part from the votes to get speaker were for the rules package that the Democrats together every time you have a new congress house and Senate create their own rules for how to govern the body.

"It is open line Friday, eight hundred two eight two two eight eight two sometimes a picture is worth. They say how many? Words. Well, I can't do pictures for you. But I can describe them side by side comparison on CNN and reporting the change in speakership on Pelosi headline Trump and Pelosi face off an epic power struggle. The most powerful people in Washington, we'll meet for the first time as president and speaker. There's every chance things won't go. Well. I searched for the day. John bainer took the speakership from Pelosi from in speaker and waiting Boehner. A painter agrees to see eager to see this institution survive Pelosi wins democratic leadership fight Obama calls banner after GOP win house majority president's critics powerful insider little known outside the beltway. That's the coverage. Most powerful woman in Washington. DC epic power struggle with banner. Open line Friday Cheryl in river forest, Illinois. Welcome to the Rush Limbaugh show has taught Herman filling in Hello, Cheryl. Hi, todd. You're doing great. Thank you Tate. I have a question about the fundraiser. Brian. The military guy is doing a gofundme me on the border has over eighteen million dollars raised her ready. My question is what happens if we come up with every penny that we the people. What will they do? Now will any do on the downs? And maybe even go fund me. Well, they try to do something like Facebook. Oh, well, yeah. I mean, I think that that's a it's it's probably a near certainty that go fund me tries to block that somehow. It begins to reach that that portion of the of the goal or fifty percent by the guy who organized that has as a coffee company, very very accomplished guy. He was targeted by Facebook and Twitter from some websites. He owned I talked to him about that. So that's a good point. But let me ask you this. Do you think the Democrats if the money came in it was donated to the treasury donated and earmarked for the wall? Do you think the Democrats to say, oh, well, we lost that round? And they got the five billion. So I guess they can they can they can build that wall. I I don't know. I'm like, I just my friend. And I were talking about it this morning in it just blows my mind. I mean, I bet you I wouldn't be surprised if we came up with the money, that's the thing. But will they just try to pull some trip out of a hat and try to stop it? Like, it'd be government is for the people, right? You you say that with a laugh, and you answered your question with the laugh, Cheryl, look, the Democrats would sue they would find a basis on which to sue either saying you can't do a direct donation to the treasury. They would sue. And I appreciate the phone call Sheryl. Let me expand on this a little bit. This is an important point. I think I said earlier that the Democrats operate in the paradigm of the ends justify the means. And I was talking to a caller who is asking is the president allowed to use the department of defense to build the wall. He's a conservative. Therefore, he's interested in the rule of law is the president have the right? Can he do that? Democrats. The left doesn't do that. They don't care if they have the right? They take the right. And I mentioned the operating an ends justify the means environment. And when the ends justify the means, the means themselves, become an end. So let me try explain this all these lawsuits against the president. Let's an ends justify the means waves. Stopping the erasing of the Obama agenda. It's not constitutional. It's an overreach, and it's abuse of the legal system, etc. The Democrats don't care because of the end goal. But now suing presidents has become an self the end let me try to get the better way to say back in the day. I was making a business argument for streaming video game take your money out of TV put it into streaming video. I was meeting with a really powerful ad buyer. And they had to fly me back to New York short notice because the deal is falling apart. So I sat with this guy. Listen, he said, look, I don't pay thirty.
