Bombard These Senators, Ask Them Why They're Betraying Voters
"Over some of the names here, you've got blunt Boseman, capito Collins, corn and cotton, so by the way, senator Tom cotton, can I tell you what this guy right here, he says he's a conservative. He's not, he's a rhino. You can't trust him. The man is not trustworthy. And it's really sad to say that about a fellow Republican, but this guy is not trustworthy. You've got senator grassley, Lindsey Graham, another one. You've got all you folks in Mississippi, both your senators. Voted for this nonsense. Hyde Smith and wicker, Mitch McConnell, Jerry Moran, Lisa Murkowski, rob Portman Mitt Romney. Senator rounds, Rubio, Shelby, thune, even topper film. Well, you can't trust tuberville. You know, he used to go down it while I don't want to get into the SEC. It's a situation, but you never came really trust those guys. So these people, you need to be bombarding them. I don't even care. You may not even live in Alabama. It doesn't matter. You call them. And we need to be demanding answers here. We need to be demanding to know why they betrayed the voters. And we also have to hope and pray that at the end of the day, somebody is going to come to their senses and the Democrats are not going to get the ten Republican votes they need in the Senate to pass this. Are you angry ladies and gentlemen? Are you frustrated? Are you disappointed?

"All right, we do continue now. 34 minutes past the hour bob brand sitting in for Dennis here in Cleveland, Ohio. I want to trash my senator for a moment. 'cause he deserves it. Rob Portman is everything that's wrong with his bill, rob Portman is everything that's wrong with the attack on the First Amendment. Rob Portman is everything that's wrong with the United States Senate as a whole, I think. Anybody who makes a pledge and a promise to constituents in return for their votes. Anybody who says he believes in traditional marriage between one man and one woman. Anybody who says I will govern and I will make votes in the United States Senate along those beliefs. Who then turns around and flips it upside down 180° because his kid tells him he's gay. If someone that has no business being in government, thankfully rob Portman is on his way out of government. He chose not to run for reelection, JD Vance is going to be our next senator in his seat. And I look forward to much, much better from JD Vance and I got from rob Portman. Rob Portman proved to be selfish. He put his families, concern above that of the constitution, and while I understand that as a father, I do. He didn't take an oath to his son, he took an oath to uphold the constitution. And the constitution includes the Bill of Rights, it includes the First Amendment that are going to be shredded. As I said in my earlier program this morning, what he and the other 11 Republican turn coach did is they took the Bill of Rights, they took the constitution on its beautiful sacred parchment and put it through a paper shredder, then put that paper shredded through a bigger paper shredder, then set that paper shredder on fire. It's never coming back. Do you understand that? That's what this bill does. Portman issued a statement today that read in part. The Supreme Court acknowledged same sex marriage as a constitutional right in 2015, and current state law, our current law allows states and the federal government to refuse to recognize valid same sex marriages, no it doesn't. No states have challenged any same sex marriage since 2015 when the Supreme Court made that ruling. This is completely unnecessary and he knows it. He went on to say the respect for marriage act, which has already passed the House with bipartisan support simply guarantees that a valid same sex marriage from one state will be recognized by the federal government and other states. It ensures that valid marriages between two individuals. And by the way, it does not. It does not, because it doesn't say one and one. It doesn't say two individuals. It just says in the respect for marriage act. Same sex marriage and interracial marriage. And again, they threw the interracial part in their jaws to be able to call people racists if they opposed the same sex marriage bill. But it does not specify the number, which is why doma, which has now been repealed by essentially by this new bill and about to be a law. Doma was very specific. One man one woman, not two women, one man, a one man, or any other combinations, one on one. Throughout this process, Portman says, I also listened to the concerns raised by religious organizations. Really? And worked with my colleagues, colleagues to strengthen the religious liberty protections in the Bill, while still preserving the rights of same sex married couples. No, you didn't. A group of constitutional scholars who specialize in religious liberty have analyzed the bill and concluded that it does not pose new litigation risks to faith based groups. What Portman is trying to dance around here, hoping that people are too stupid to look into the reality of the situation. Is that he's trying to say that because religious institutions churches synagogues, mosques or whatever. Don't have to perform the actual same sex ceremonies. That means religion and religious liberty have been protected. That's what he wants you to think. But again, he's counting on you being stupid because that is not all that needs to be covered when you talk about religious liberty. You have to talk about the individual separate and apart from the institution of a church or a synagogue or whatever. You have to talk about the individual's right because of their own faith or even without their faith their own conscience that says, no, I can't do this. I don't believe in this. Which is exactly what free speech and freedom of religion give us. So he's trying to argue that this bill protects people's religious freedom, he's lying. And so is every other one of the other 11 turncoat Republicans who turn their back on their constituents and on the constitution and this has nothing to do with same sex marriage. This is not commentary nor criticism of same sex marriage which I can have my opinion on if I want. This is not about that because what was done last night and what is being done when Biden signs this is the end of the First Amendment, and that's something that affects all of us will be right back..

Pastor Paul Chappell: What's the Faith-Base of Those 12 Republicans?
"Have a list. This is a freshly updated list of Republican senators who are supporting this, and all of these folks, by the way, were just like Barack Obama and one of them in particular was staunchly opposed to same sex marriage. That would be Mitt Romney of Utah, who now supports the bill, also Tom tillis of North Carolina, rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, a Lisa Murkowski is hinting that she will support this along with senators, let's see here. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa, telling Business Insider that she was keeping an open mind about the bill. So you could have more Republican senators joining the Democrats pastor. Yes, that's a concern. And I always, as a pastor, I always ask myself, what's the faith base of the individual making that vote, what's going on at their home church? Because it usually influences them. And then the second thing is who are their donors. And there's a lot of money that comes from this crowd. What they're all saying is that this was passed at the Supreme Court level. We're just agreeing with the Supreme Court. But that's not exactly as I understand it true. This is an opportunity for them to be what our founders intended. It checks and balances in how far this law is codified and how much of a nuisance it becomes to the faith community. And so at the very least, they need to consider language in the in this that excludes religious organizations and I've yet to hear about that. Well,

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

Matt Boyle Shares His Predictions for MAGA Success in Congress
"Couple of times already, we've mentioned the midterms of Matt Boyle. Here's my big question for you as somebody who knows the swamp better than anyone else who's been following and writing about the politics here for years and years and years. Exciting. Lots of, I mean, what is it? The president Trump is a what a 150 to 9 record of interest. Some absurd best efforts. Best ever times like a thousand. So exciting. Maga candidates, American first candidates crushing it. But here's my big, so what? Okay, they can win. They can come into the house coming to the Senate going to state legislatures. But without a change in leadership, because Matt Gaetz isn't going to be the Speaker of the House, right? We're not going to have a maga leader of the Senate. So it kind of grinds to a halt often November or can America first with president Trump coming around the corner for 2024. Can maga success be reflected actually in Congress? What's your prediction? I think that it's going to very much be reflected in Congress. And so look, this is a long battle that we've been engaged in. So yes, we shocked the world when president Trump won The White House in 2016. But the Republican Party hadn't fully changed yet. It was starting to happen a little bit, right? Some of these good guys were winning primaries in 2012 and 2020. There's very early. So this is played out over the course of the last several elections since then. So now it's happened faster in the house than it has in the Senate. And that's just because House elections are every two years. Senator elections are every 6 years. But look at the Senate picture. Look at these new guys that are coming in to the U.S. Senate. JD Vance is much different than rob Portman. Okay. Ted bud, much different than Richard burr. Eric Schmidt and Missouri, much different than Roy blunt, who's leaving. So in the same goes across the board around the country. So it's each election you want to move the overton window and move things just a little bit more. The right direction and take as much ground as he can in a little bit more than that. We've been seeing that happen in the house. So yes, as Matt Gaetz is going to be the speaker. No, Matt Gaetz is not going to be the Speaker of the House. The speaker is going to be Kevin McCarthy.

"Now turn to senator rob Portman of Ohio ranking member of the Homeland Security committee, senator Portman earlier served as the United States trade representative and director of the office of management budget. Thank you so much for being back with us, senator. I want to start with the issue of the day, which is of course inflation. Every American, I think is concerned about inflation right now. And pick up on one of your former jobs, which is the United States trade representative. And as specifically, what could we be doing with trade policy that might actually lower some of the cost to consumers? Well, David, I heard Austin goolsby said analysis, which I thought was interesting. And he talked about the supply side as well as the demand side and talked about a consensus of economists maybe on the issue of supply. I think there's also a consensus on the issue of demand, which was that we stimulated demand with an unprecedented amount of stimulus spending a year and a couple of months ago on the supply side, though, with regard to trade, there are two ideas that I think would be quite helpful. One is to try to, I should say, reduce the cost to consumers by taking a position where there are at least exclusions in the current tariffs that are being applied in the China context. Those exclusions were in place back in the Trump years. That could be done again. That doesn't mean getting rid of the tariffs, which were put in for a good reason, and there's a section three O one report detailing why, which is a China is not playing by the rules. But then second, I think most importantly, is to get America back in the game, which means more trade. And that means one finishing up the UK trade agreement, which is right on the cusp of being completed. But also entering into what we call plural lateral, meaning multi lateral agreements with people through the World Trade Organization that don't have to include everybody, which is the current rule and allow those to be passed by Congress. As an example, there's a number of discussions right now underway about environmental goods or services. We could come up with agreements on these topics by not saying that it has to be an absolute consensus countries that wanted to be part of it could be. That would be a breakthrough and would be extremely important for our long-term economy for us to have the ability to do that with like minded countries. So I think there's some things in trade that we should and not quite sure why we're not doing that make a lot of sense. And my hope is to move forward on that. Well, that's what I was going to ask you about. Whether there's any progress on any of those funds, you mentioned discussions being had. Are there any negotiations

"Really leans into the comedy here. Now, I thought that ragnarok was sort of a breakthrough in a way because it really brought more humor to the proceedings. These marvel movies are often very funny, but the emphasis is on superheroics. It's on action adventure, but that one just made us laugh and laugh. And this one tries, but mostly fails and part of the problem here with the jokes don't land and actually I was watching and thinking, gosh, I suddenly I'm pining for the 1960s Batman with Adam West, it's that goofy. And I think that's a real misfire because I think you can lean into the humor and these actors are certainly capable of delivering laughter, but if you really make it the focus and you got nowhere to go and the movie actually tries to get more serious as it moves along and it just doesn't work. Christian Bale is here. He plays the villain. He's excellent, but he's so grim so scary, so terrifying, it's almost like he should be in a different movie, a more serious movie. And then you have Natalie Portman as Jane foster. She's back as Thor's love interest and she's able to wield that mighty hammer and become Thor herself. So that's a fun twist and their romance is key to the story thus the title, but even that, it's so superficial, so bland so wrote, it really is beneath these actors who are really capable of delivering much, much more. There's a certain level of quality and excellence expected from these marvel movies Christian and they have stumbled now and again, how big is stumble would you say this is compared to some other recent films? It's a fairly large number I have to say and you're right. I think we expect certain level of quality and the storytelling must be tight. And of course the actors must be first rate. I don't think that's a problem here. But this is a very long franchise at this point. It started in 2008, and we're starting to see some cracks in the armor. And that's an issue when you've got so many millions at stake. No, I think this will do very well financially, but I don't know if audiences are going to go back to see it again and again. Some people thought maybe Stranger Things stumbled with this most recent season as the episodes are quite long and bloated, but I got to tell you, you shared with me some information about how many people are watching.

Yeah, the more complaint you hear, the more streams happen on Netflix and I guess that's a good thing like any publicity is good publicity. 7.2 billion streams that's minutes of streaming over a one week period when the season four debuted, that's huge. It's massive. It's actually bigger than Tiger king, which I thought would have been the sort of The Crown, the champion, just because we were all logged down and looking for something to watch.

What JD Vance's Win of the GOP Nomination in Ohio Means For the US
"I mean, this is just amazing. What we saw happening out in Ohio because JD Vance, wow, he just climbed in the polls. In the last couple of weeks, interestingly, after Donald Trump endorsed him. He did win the day out there in Ohio. He now advances to the big race in November. He's running against senator rob. Well, he's running against center Tim congressman. Tim Ryan, I should say, this is for senator rob Portman's seat, rob Portman, of course, is retiring getting out of politics. And this will be an interesting one because what I love about Ohio voters is that they really are just kind of salt of the earth and they're interested in a lot of the same things that frankly I think you and I are interested in from a policy perspective. And so it will be extremely interesting to watch. I should point out that Tim Ryan, he has a history of being pretty tough on China. He is a history for standing up for the American people on the jobs front. He's very anti inflation. I mean, he's got a lot of values that are somewhat aligned with a lot of the conservative values, not all of them, for sure. Not all of them. But that's why it's going to be so interesting because he's not an AOC type. He's not a Bernie Sanders type is not Elizabeth Warren type. He kind of didn't fit in entirely perfectly to the Democrat party. So now he's running against somebody who is really the antithesis of everything that the Democrats stand for. And that'll be a very interesting barometer to see where that heads for us as a nation. Don't forget, this Vance victory is seen as a Trump victory because Trump endorsed him and it really could spell some pretty good news for Trump endorsed candidates. I think in other upcoming primaries, including what we're seeing in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Georgia, all over the country,

Joe Biden Campaigned as a Moderate; Governs as a Progressive
"Senator Portman, the rules I've always operated under with W and with former president Trump is that if you go to talk to him, you never tell people what they say, but it's okay for you to say what you say. So what did you tell the president? Well, first of all, you learned that rule when you worked in The White House and I learned it too. We were both to associate counsel to the president and when you're in the Oval Office, you don't say what they say you. But I can tell you what I've said to him consistent to him consistently, which is you have an opportunity here. As you know, I said it relation to the COVID relief when they end up going with their own legislation going it alone and spending almost $2 trillion, the largest legislation ever passed. I went down there to The White House with other Republicans who were willing to work with them and said, we can come up with something here that makes sense that doesn't break the bank that focuses just on COVID. Most of that 2 trillion, by the way, did not focus on COVID. And as a result, as you know, we have this 40 year high in inflation. We have an economy that's struggling because people's wages aren't keeping up with that inflation. And so that's an example. Energy is another example. So I'm Frank with him when I talk to him about an opportunity for us to do what he said he wanted to do during his campaign. Recall, he ran as the moderate. It was Bernie Sanders, who was the progressive, and yet respects his campaigning like Bernie Sanders, he's governing like Bernie Sanders after having campaigned as someone who wanted to reach across the island, get some things done.

U.S. Senate Passes $1.5 Trillion Gov't Funding Bill With Ukraine Aid
"So I want to get into a story here that broke late last night. The United States Senate has approved the $1.5 trillion spending bill that expands the power of the IRS and dramatically increases the size and scope of government last evening, but also it sends $13.6 billion to Ukraine. We're going to get into that. Now Senate Republicans voted for this 18 of them voted for it. Senator barrasso from Wyoming, Roy blunt from Missouri. Shelley Moore capito from West Virginia, Susan Collins from Maine, John cornyn from Texas, Joni Ernst from Iowa, Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, chuck grassley from Iowa. Kathy Hyde Smith from Mississippi, Mitch McConnell from Kentucky. Senator Moran from Kansas, Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, rob Portman from Ohio, senator Shelby from Alabama, John thune from South Dakota, Tommy tuberville from Alabama, a senator wicker from Mississippi and senator young from Indiana. Approved Nancy Pelosi's $1.5 trillion omnibus bill. What good are Republicans when we have Republicans doing the work of Democrats? So I want to focus on one part of this, which of course is us spending $13.6 billion to Ukraine. Now, I'm not going to get into whether or not we should send the money. I've already made my position clear on that. I'm going to ask a couple of questions about this. How about leaders thought this through? What does success look like with this sort of funding appropriation? What is an acceptable result? So a rational way of going about spending money, any person that we have here at NRB would ask the question before you spend $13.6 billion before you embark on a mission, you just have to say if it's the right or wrong thing to do, but also weigh the reality of pulling off that task. And the track record associated with the entity or the organization proposing it. So I have a question for all of our listeners that support sending money to Ukraine. Do you have trust in the CIA? Does mark milley and Lloyd Austin give you confidence? Because that's who we just funded. Does giving foreign aid to other countries give you confidence or does it give you skepticism? So just to be clear, these Republicans and a lot of people that are pushing for sending a to Ukraine. And it might be the right choice, by the way. I have said I don't believe it is. I could be corrected, but it's already

Ron Johnson to Run for Reelection in Wisconsin
"Checking out that race as well. Now, Rick Scott and the national Republican senatorial committee got good news over the weekend senator Scott wanted Ron Johnson to win in Wisconsin. He's going to. And Ron Johnson works hard. He's a very hardworking candidate. I've had my disagreements with him, but he is a retail politician extraordinaire. And then every Republican breeze desire relief because they like Jonathan. People just like John thune, they wanted him to stay in the Senate and to succeed Mitch McConnell, I think. What'd you make of those two announcements? Yeah. Big sigh of relief that John soon was running for reelection because a lot of folks from that sort of traditionalist wing of the party, the governing wing of the Republican Party. Have decided to retire. Rob Portman pat toomey, there are a lot of folks that are really close to them that have decided to leave. And there was real worry talking to senators that he could have made that same decision. Now he's running for reelection. He's saying he's not worried about a primary from the Trump right. It's a good sign for the Republican caucus and for leader

Matt Dolan Makes Case for Open Senate Seat
"State senator Matt Dolan of the great state of Ohio joins us by Zoom this morning. Good morning, senator Dolan. How are you? Good morning, you. How are you? You did a great job on Sunday Night. Thank you. That was a lot of fun. And I thought it was astonishing we had 1500 people, most of whom paid for their tickets. And it was civil. It was subset of have you had debates like that before and your political career? Yeah, so I mean, first of all, you set the tone by asking substitution so it required us as candidates to reveal what we know and what our vision is for Ohio and the USS. So that helped greatly. Yeah, as you move closer to election day, they've become more debates where you where you counter your opponents. But I think this time with so many people in the race just to outlining what our visions are and what my vision is. What people wanted to hear. They didn't want to hear scribbling while playing. They wanted to hear stuff. Now Matt told there are 6 candidates they're all well funded. They all have experience. I wrote about this for The Washington Post this weekend. And my weekly column. And I described you as in the rob Portman lane. I'm curious if you think that's a fair description and if you welcomed it. I don't know if you've read the column or not, but I tried to accurately portray how people are approaching a crowded field. So I think I read the article that was good article. I would argue though that I am in my own lane and maybe my reflect rob Portman, but there's no one else that has been singularly focused on the issues that impact Ohio more than me. And so there are facts that distinguish me. I'm the only one who are the infrastructure Bill, which brings tremendous relief in investments in Ohio, which is great for Ohio businesses. And the only one in this race that is an elected official and has positive conservative experience and results that I can bring to Washington and reproduce the same thing. So I think I'm uniquely qualified and I have my own lane in this race. And everyone else is in the early.

Could Mike Pompeo, Robert O'Brien, Make a Run for POTUS?
"Yeah, David drucker, I am going to moderate a debate of would be senators in ohioans on a night, the 6 Republicans who are running three nights at Senate to replace rob Portman, and I'm reading in Trump shattered or prepare for that debate. They might want to get a hold of a copy themselves if they want to know what I'm thinking about. I think you're going to sell like hotcakes. I can not wait to read this, but I wanted to ask you, I know that two of the profiles in the book are of Robert O'Brien and Mike Pompeo. I was with both of those men last week. I'm curious what your assessment of both of their intentions and odds are showed president Trump not enter the race. And if he should. Well, it's very interesting. Let me start with Mike Pompeo, the former Secretary of State because I spent so much time researching him and reporting on it. He wants to run for president. And in fact, in a podcast interview a couple of weeks ago and it's a companion to my book, so it's also athlete titled in Trump's shadow. I asked secretary Pompeo, if I said I know you're not going to tell me if you're running or not today, I'm not that I'm not that crazy. But I said, if Trump decides to run a third time, does that automatically mean you will not. And he would not say as some have said that that automatically means he would not. He said, look, if you're going to run for president, you need to believe that you have something unique and critical to offer the country at a time in history. He is planning to run and everything he is doing is about planning to run. Robert O'Brien, who I profile less, but did mention is a very interesting figure because he comes from the traditional wing of the party, but he fit in very well with Trump in The White House and was his most successful national security adviser from the perspective of doing the job and not getting crosswise with the commander in chief. Could be a very interesting dark horse candidate as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. He's a Mormon. He comes from the west. There are pockets of Mormon voters in Arizona and Nevada, Idaho, other states where multi candidate primary, you might be able to do some damage. He's also interested in running. I classify him as less interested in Pompeo.

"The bipartisan infrastructure. Deal could pass the senate today technically. It's called the infrastructure investment and jobs act now. But that just doesn't feel the same to me. The bill experienced to delay that inconvenienced the weekend. Plans of senators. Because senator bill hagerty it. Trump loyalist from tennessee refused to agree to speed up the process if the delay tactics continue today the vote won't happen until about three. A m tuesday. The hegarty wasn't exception. That proves the rule donald trump. Who just this weekend. The head of the artsy said still leads. The party had little influence over the process. So what else did we learn during the long and winding road to seemingly imminent passage. Playbook pink assembled the people at the center of the deal in the senate and the white house for their thoughts. Here are some of the key takeaways when it comes to trump. It's probably too much to say that the infrastructure bill was a rejection of the former president. But it might be seen. That's kind of senatorial sub tweet at him five. Republicans who negotiated it are the five most anti-trump gop senators senators rob portman mitt. Romney lisa murkowski. Susan collins built acidy. Alba portman voted to convict trump at his second senate impeachment trial earlier this year. These are the gop senators who have been the most vocal about trump's accents running democratic norms. The bill isn't about trump but it was hard not to notice that those gop senators most concerned about him with the ones who worked the hardest to show that a bipartisan democratic process. With still possible. Hold up mitch. Mcconnell most observers predicted the minority leader would play the familiar role of chief obstructionist but bentley did mcconnell support. The bipartisan talks behind the scenes. He voted to advance the bill. Mcconnell has sided with the political argument that portman and other republicans made on the senate floor on sunday. The legislation is good on the merits. It could benefit the party to be seen as productive rather than purely obstructionist and they worst version of the bill from the gop perspective anyway would have passed under reconciliation. Anyway the bipartisan deal may also hurt a top democratic priority or at least mcconnell and his colleagues hope. It will a senior senate. Gop aide told us. This obviously severely undercuts the narrative that the senate is broken and that the filibuster should be eliminated cure cinema. Gop praised for the democratic senator from arizona remains off the charts when gop eight closely involved in the talks noted that cinemas insistence on a bipartisan. Bill against the wishes of most our democratic colleagues helped convince them. A deal was possible and this person noted allowed republicans dow former influence in the process that they had any right to expect. Did we mention. They really like cinema. Okay but what did we learn about. Chuck schumer early in the process. The majority leader at least publicly seemed unenthusiastic about the deal. Schumer as is common during the fifth year of senate terms is hugging the left lane these days and the left hated the bif processed. It was the cinema- biden mind. Meld that forced to happen in the senate and schumer eventually shepherded the bill through using a field. Cloture vote to push things along when talks dragged and opening the pipeline of amendments just enough to neuter gop criticism but. The process was unfair. But still we don't see the process as likely to be a model for other significant legislation. This congress democrats noted that while the most gop friendly portions of the binding agenda are all in the infrastructure bill. They still bristled over delay tactics this weekend. Despite the supermajority in favor of the bill one republican told us. The staff is burned out and the committee chairs which lost control of the policy-making to the soccer but senators all want to quote kill deportment and cinema led group the senior. Gop aide added getting this done and the current political climate has been extraordinarily difficult. It took four months to get to this point. This deal nearly died a hundred times along the way and partisan forces sought to undermine it now. How about the white house to westerns view. Is that it was a victory for biden style discipline so the white house official. We set a strategy to bills in april and stuck with it. We ignored the noise and the doubts and stuck with our plan added another top biden adviser. People continue to underestimate the president and his ability to get things done. This is the most popular initiative. Congress can move on even according to the d triple c holy. It's worth noting that on the other hand. The bill still has a long road through the house to get to biden's deaths and finally about the press. One of the most important lessons for the press in covering such a long and complicated negotiations is to refrain from viewing daily comments from the key players. As determinative of the outcome. Most public statements are negotiating. Ploys meant to influence the final outcome rather than torpedoes designed to destroy the deal at least the ones from good actors who want to pass something. This is a good reminder as we move onto covering much more sweeping and more complicated reconciliation builds the major players are all already using their considerable leverage to stick out what might look like irreconcilable differences. Don't confuse attempts to shape legislation which the white house and democratic leaders will have to resolve for a bill's demise especially when the president and his party's future depend on it passing. We seen several members floating around this month from political operatives analyzing the prospects for democrats to keep control the house after the twenty twenty two midterms top aggressive strategists circulated in analysis last night that caught our attention state by state. Study of word. Things will stand after redistricting which overall will benefit republicans laid out the met for democrats by highlighting a peace symbol numbers. One hundred ninety five. That's too projected floor for house democrats after the midterms to thirty two. That's projected ceiling for house. Democrats in twenty twenty to thirty seven. The number of swing seats in twenty. Twenty two and two thirds. That's the percentage of those swing seats. That democrats will need to win in order to retain their house majority. Here's another step that tells you just how difficult this will be for. The democrats democrats who won fifty one percent of the adjusted to party voted. Twenty twenty will likely have to win between one or two points more than twenty twenty two to retain control. That's why some democrats are obsessing about this. Historically the number of seats lost by presidents party in his first midterm election is closely correlated with the president's job approval for months. biden's approval has been extraordinarily steady. But if you pollsters have detected a recent dip that is making some democrats nervous even such a small change and this one seems tied to the reemergence of the krona virus could have big consequences in twenty twenty two given the tight margin than congress. Let's schedule ahead for the white house. President joe biden will remain in wilmington delaware today at ten. Am you'll receive the president's daily brief the houses out today.

"Senator portman thanks for joining us this. Let's start out with that infrastructure deal. You just heard speaker. Pelosi say she's not going to have a vote until reconciliation has also passed by the senate. I off do you expect to reach a deal this week with george. Let me say that. What she has said is entirely counter to what president biden has committed to and what the senate is doing which is a two track process. The infrastructure bill has nothing to do with the reckless tax and spend extravaganza that she's talking about in terms of what reconciliation as she called it so so no. I'm not happy with what she said. Because it's been inconsistent with the agreement that we have on a bipartisan basis. Does that mean we'll end up with nothing on their own. I'm gonna well if she has her way we could. I'm not sure what the future is of reconciliation. I know that the bipartisan infrastructure package is very popular among the american people and in the united states congress because it makes sense. We need it badly. You know forty. Three percent of our roads are in bad or mediocre condition. According to the engineers forty-six thousand bridges or structurally deficient We have ships lining up at portsmouth. Reports aren't efficient enough. Eighty seven percent of the american people. Nick we do it. Bipartisan infrastructure package. It's the right thing to do. Every president in modern times has talked about it. President trump's proposal was for one point five trillion dollars in infrastructure or is about five hundred seventy nine billion over five years so this is the right thing to do. It's been totally bipartisan. From the start. It's the way we ought to be doing things here in washington to get stuff done and i can't believe the speaker of the house would be blocking it. Do you have a deal. We're about ninety percent of the way there. I'm here this weekend working on legislative language with colleagues and with staff. And and i. I feel good about getting done this week. We have one issue outstanding and We're not getting much Response from the democrats on it. It's about mass transit. Our transit numbers very generous.

As much about our future we are back. It's data download time this time. We are marking a new federal holiday. It's the first time federal holiday has been added to the calendar over thirty five years but before juneteenth was a federal holiday it was a state holiday almost everywhere but that didn't happen overnight. We show you the journey of juneteenth in the states. It began of course in texas in nineteen eighty of course texas was the first state to acknowledge juneteenth. Which of course is their knowledge. Meant that they were the last state. Essentially do acknowledge immense a patient and then by nineteen ninety nine three other states were added minnesota oklahoma and florida. It was really in the first decade of this century that momentum for juneteenth really took off thirty plus states added it from two thousand to two thousand nine and in fact by the time congress voted on it every state but to had june eighteenth as a state. Just south dakota in hawaii Didn't have it as a state holiday. North dakota was the most recent state to add it in april. What's interesting here is just sort of where public opinion has been on this overall. Just thirty five percent of adults say that juneteenth should be a federal holiday. But don't mistake that freight lack of support. It's more of a lack of knowledge about it because forty percent said they didn't know in public opinion. That tells you. There is a bit of a knowledge gap on the issue overall. What's interesting on this knowledge. Gap is how much it is by age. A real generational. Divide as you can see here. Among younger folks. A majority believed juneteenth should have been a federal holiday. Older folks scott the less. They thought juneteenth to do that. And this plays out in other issues involving racial justice. For instance reparations. The idea that descendants of slaves should be compensated. Well support for it. There's still a majority that. Do not support reparations. But check out this generational divide forty-two percent among eighteen to thirty four believe That yes there should be some reparations and you will see the older. The responded gets the less support there is for it. But what does this tell you. June eighteen is not the end of something when it comes to marketing racial inequality in this country. It may be the beginning of new conversation. Because as this younger generation gets older the discussion of racial justice inequality is only going to become more central. So keep an eye on when we come back. Mike pence it's heckled at a christian conservative conference. Just another sign that on the right these days if you're not one hundred percent with donald trump. you're considered one hundred percent is enemy. Stick welcome.

These appointments come directly from Mr Biden himself. From those that he knows best. I might add one other things on a personal note. There's a lot of sense of relaxation around the White House at 78, the oldest president in American history is not going to be traveling. He is not going to be tweeting late at night, and he is not going to take opportunities to pick any partisan fights. In other words, he isn't Donald Trump.

So there was speculation that representative Jim Jordan might run for his feet. What are you hearing there? Jim? Jordan has since said he is not running and I might add Rick That had he run.

"Morning news. I'm JT John Decker joints down correspondent at the White House. Cover a couple of topics here, John. Welcome in. Thanks for being with me. Watch it. He could to be with you today. Well, let's first talk about where we are in the impeachment process. The articles have been sent over to the Senate. Now I guess they're being sworn in and then the proceedings will probably start with a couple of weeks. I think, right Likely on February the ninth, which is a Tuesday over the course of the next two weeks. Both sides involved in this impeachment process the House impeachment managers. The defense for President. Trump will present their briefs on and then we'll get started with the trial, which I think J T will last about a week's time. The first impeachment trial of President Trump, which took place last year around this time, last 21 days. This will be significantly shorter. I understand that they need 17 Republican senators to flip to convict here, so it's not likely we'll see a conviction. I think you're still of that mindset as well. But there are some Republicans that I anticipate making the move to join the Democrats. What do you think? Well, if I had to put a number on it right now, and you, said John, what's the number going to be? I'd say seven Republican senators, among them two Republican senators, actually three Republican senators. Who are not running for re election. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, and yesterday another Republican senator, also announced that he's not running for re election. That's Rob Portman of Ohio. And that means they don't have to worry about the political consequences of voting to convict President Trump. They don't have to worry about being primary Esso. I would include them, along with some moderate Republican senators, Susan Collins Just one a full six year term in the U. S. Senate. Mitt Romney, who voted to impeach President Trump last year on one of those articles of impeachment, and Lisa Murkowski, who, of course not a big fan of the president, and I would not be surprised if she also votes to convict the president on this one article of impeachment. All right. Switching gears real quick. John your thoughts on the President Biden now as we're trying to get this crew, no virus stimulus package going through, and it's a big one. Over a trillion dollars here on it looks like he's wanting to send $4 billion to Central America and all of this But what happened to America first year? Well, I don't know the answer to that You'd have to ask Or maybe all Alaska, the White House press team that represents President Biden at the White House. You know, this is obviously something that President Biden wants to do is to improve relations with our neighbors to the South. But, you know, is there enough money to also Spread it out to make certain that every American that once the vaccine gets the vaccine. I think they're likely is you mentioned the covert relief package $1.9 trillion It is likely not going to be that large if indeed, a bill ultimately gets to President Biden desk and the reason being is because some moderate Republican senators have said it's just too large, especially after another cove. It really Phil was passed by Congress, as you know, at the end of December. Here's another thought for the press secretary there in the White House and dying President Biden's people a Z and, you know, really You know, initiates the travel ban. Does that apply to all 23 of these different countries and our people traveling in and out? T lock it down and stop it from happening, But Still allowing the folks to come across from Guatemala and Mexico across our southern border. Is that the exception we're gonna allow those folks to come in. I know what that loaded question what you're getting at. Look, obviously, there's ah New administration That's in place right now. I mean, we know that this administration will have a different view towards immigration and the Trump Administration. The travel ban that's in place right now that was announced yesterday. Eyes one that effects all individuals coming into the US except for U. S citizens. So if you are U s citizen coming in from Europe, for instance, you can still get back to the U. S. But it obviously makes doing business on obviously doing just personal travel impossible right now in in all of Europe in and also in South America. Yeah, Restrict us restrict Europeans, But today you're coming across their southern border. Come on, we'll get it. All right. Thank you, John. I appreciate you a 20 Eights.
