Twitter CEO Musk tweeted today what really happened with the Hunter Biden story suppression will be published this afternoon on Twitter. A coalition of railroad workers is slamming both Democrats and Republicans for the passage of an agreement to stop a potential strike, Lisa Taylor reports. The railroad workers united group said it was despicable that both parties opted to decide with big business over working people. The group criticized President Biden and House speaker Nancy Pelosi to push through an agreement most freight rail workers had previously voted to reject, and called out Republicans for voting against providing workers 7 days of paid sick leave. The coalition said workers should have the right to bargain collectively and to freely engage in a strike whenever members see fit. I'm Lisa Taylor, president Joe Biden is recommending moving Iowa out of its first in the nation's status. President Joe Biden is pulling for the Democratic National Committee to replace Iowa with South Carolina as the first test of presidential politics for the party in 2024.

All federal inmates who are being held in private prisons are now in federal facilities. The bureau of prisons began designating low security inmates to privately manage facilities back in the 80s to manage the increasing prison population.

To boost Georgia's Warnock, Biden is in ... Massachusetts
"Days before the Georgia runoff election polls close, President Biden is aiming to help incumbent senator Raphael Warnock be challenger Herschel Walker from hundreds of miles away. To help a candidate in the south, the president went north, which seemed to even mix him up earlier in the day. I'm going to Georgia today to help senator Warren not to George.

She says the president wanted to do whatever Warnock needed in his campaign asked for the Boston trip. Sagar Meghani, Washington.

Rail strike averted: Biden signs bill enforcing agreement
"President Biden has signed a bill to avert what he says would have been an economic disaster. The bill binds rail companies and workers to an agreement that avoids a freight rail strike. It helps our nation avoid what without a doubt would have been an economic catastrophe at a very bad time. And the calendar. The president acknowledges it was a difficult move after some rail unions rejected the deal since it does not boost paid sick leave. Given the potential economic costs of a strike. It was the right thing to do at the moment. And he will keep pushing for more paid sick leave, not just for rail workers, but all workers. I'm going to continue that fight till we succeed. Sagar Meghani, Washington.
Fresh update on " biden" discussed on Sound ON
"Bloomberg business flash. Charlie, thank you. 8 30 this morning, boy, it was something watching listening to surveillance. I mean, their jaws were on the floor. TK, John farrow, Brahma, and their guests. Nobody could believe this number. So much for the whisper stronger than expected the markets freak out, but that's good news on Main Street. And of course, you know, Joe Biden wanted to talk about it. That's part of his job. We don't need to deal with Jay Powell on interest rates and a possible recession right now by God there are more jobs than we expected and the president says wages are up to, here he is. Wages for working families. In fact, over the last couple of months have gone up. Up these wage increases are larger than the increase in inflation during that same period of time. And so we're in a position now where things are moving. They're moving in the right direction. Which sounds great. Unless you're Jay Powell or apparently half of Wall Street. That's like cringe material there. Up more than inflation? Well, that could lead to a wage spiral if we're not already in one. And all this stuff sounds really cold and just awful when, you know, people come on the air and say, my God, we have to break the job market to stop inflation. Well, maybe you ought to lose your job first. But then the president leaves the podium sits down at the mini desk there. With Marty Walsh, Brian deese behind him, and he signs legislation preventing the rail unions from going on strike. No, not you, not now. Even without the sick time, well, they got one day, I guess, in that thing. And of course, the president, as he said yesterday, he negotiated a deal that nobody else could have, he said. So damned if you do, damned if you don't, as we head into this first weekend of December, with the help of Lincoln Mitchell, was looking forward to talking to Lincoln at this very moment. Political analyst adjunct associate research scholar. At the institute of war and peace studies at Columbia University. I can't tell if this is a good day or a bad day, Lincoln, what do you think? Poor Joe Biden, I think it's on balance and okay day. The jobs report is what's going to drive the news for most Americans, watching this. And averting the railroad strike is a good thing for Joe Biden. It may not, I got a great deal for the workers and it made the long run continue to build a sentiment that job for a younger particularly for younger Democrats that Biden is a corporate Democrat and as somebody about whom they can't get enthused, but in the short run, it's a good day. What keeps, you know, I realize it keeps the economy moving. You can really make a very easy argument that he had no choice. He couldn't have the economy shut down going into the end of the year here. That was not an option. But he just didn't plan for it to go this way, right? Lincoln he's talking all the time about he wants to be the most union labor friendly administration in history. He's up in Boston today at the IBW local one O three for crying out loud. That's not the story he wanted to tell. And that's also very much his brand, right? He's middle class Joe, the labor guy. He's also Joe Biden who had a before he became vice president. Certainly before it became president, was legendary for actually taking Amtrak, right? From Washington to his home in Delaware. So he's so this is very much against his image. What strikes me here and what puzzles me is that you could understand a situation where the president said, you know, at the end of the day, the money that the labor unions on the pro labor guy, but this money is too much. You could understand that. But on something like paid sick leave, which seems for those of us who are fortunate enough to have paid sick leave or to work from home, it just seems so extraordinary that you would say to a railroad workers that, you know, if you're sick and you go and you stay home, which we want sick people to do in an age when COVID is still out there, you're going to lose a day's work. And for people who need that money, that's a poor decision. Or you're fired. I guess in some cases or you're fired is what was happening. I'm glad you brought it up. Listen to Joe Biden today in that same address to the nation as the jobs report came out, he came, he had some initial remarks about the rail deal and specifically on paid sick leave. Listen. And look, I know this bill doesn't have page sick leave. But these rail workers and frankly, every worker in America deserves. But that fight isn't over. I didn't commit we were going to stop just because we couldn't get it in this bill that we were going to stop fighting for it. We heard a similar refrain from Marty Walsh this morning we heard similar comments yesterday from Democrats, including Chuck Schumer, Lincoln, are we serious though? How do you come back around on that? We also heard it from Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and the House of Representatives who was still the speaker. So it seems to me, I mean, I'm just an ivory tower academic, right? But it seems to me that the secretary of labor, the president, the Speaker of the House, and the Senate majority leader agree on something, we should be able to get it done. Lame duck? We don't know if he's a lame duck yet, right? No, I mean, can this be done in the lame duck? That's the sort of executive action he's going to take, right? It could be done by executive action. It could be done quickly in the lame duck session. Absolutely. And it's the kind of thing where, you know, who's against this, other than the kind of most Montgomery burns ish labor, the corporate boss, who's really going to stand up and say, these sick workers need to come in. That's what they need to do, and that that's good for America. Oh, my God. Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders, fist bumping over this, so the Senate floor for crying out loud. Right, make the Republicans oppose this, right? Make Joe Manchin stand alone out there. And for once, put some muscle on him. But this was something he could have done and not doing it
AP sources: Biden tells Dems he wants SC as 1st voting state
"President Biden is weighing in on the Democrats presidential nominating calendar. I'm Ben Thomas, with the closer look. In a letter to the Democratic National Committee's rule making arm written on personal stationary, Biden says the party should move past restrictive caucuses and prioritize diversity at the start of their presidential primary calendar. Biden did not mention specific states he'd like to see go first, but three people familiar with his recommendation, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations, say he's told Democrats he wants South Carolina moved to the first position. He also recommends Michigan and Georgia move into the first 5 states. His recommendation deals a major blow to Iowa's leadoff status. Ben Thomas, Washington

Jon Schweppe: Elon's Victory Over Pro-Chinese Apple
"Talking to John schweppe from American principles project, and we're trying to figure out what the landscape is for our online and tech world coming up. And I guess I'm curious, the idea now that both Apple and Google have been involved in censorship to help the Chinese government oppress their people. I think is an area that Elon exploited to get Tim Cook to back down. You know, I think that was one of those weak spots. He's like, I've got a cards. You know, and it's not like Elon's hands are clean. Tesla's dirty with China ties too. Right. All right, so he's got that, but I think I can picture him sitting across from cooking. Do you really want to go down this path, my brother? Do you want me to point out the stuff I know from the Chinese about what you're doing with them? And I think there's a game to be played now, given the Chinese protests and given our need to build a new American economy and talk about bringing stuff back offshore. Can we pressure companies to do things in America that they're now doing with China and leave China as a marketplace not our primary manufacturing facility? Well, we should do that. Be tremendously popular. And if Biden was smart, he'd make that a part of his agenda. So he won't. So he won't. Because obviously they love China, but you know, this is really important. I mean, again, you hinted at it, but what Apple did. There was this AirDrop feature that was really benefiting the protesters over there, and Apple acted on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party to suppress that and prevent people from using. I mean, that's really the stuff. Right. They should be called before Congress and really have to answer for that. And so I think Congress, are you listening? Yeah, yeah. So I think we need to have an anti China, the Republicans need to have a pretty aggressive anti China policy, but we have to recognize our tech companies are in bed with China. And we have to push against them for that as well. And apple is the worst actor actually on
Supreme Court agrees to hear arguments on Biden's student loan plan, closing in on a resolution
"The Supreme Court will rule on President Biden's student loan cancellation plan. It means the debt forgiveness program is on hold. For now, with a final answer by early summer, about two months before the newly extended pause on loan repayments is set to expire. The plan promises $10,000 in federal student debt forgiveness to people with incomes of less than $125,000. Pell grant recipients, who typically need more financial aid, are eligible for an additional $10,000 in relief. A federal judge in Texas struck down the plan, the case before the Supreme Court is a lawsuit filed by 6 states. Missouri's attorney general says the Biden plan would saddle Americans who didn't take out loans are already paid theirs off with even more economic
Senate votes to block railroad strike, impose contract rejected by unions
"The Senate has moved fast to head off a potentially catastrophic rail strike. The Senate passed a bill binding rail companies and workers to a proposed settlement reached in September, some unions involved then rejected the deal, leading to a potential strike next week, which the Biden administration and business leaders warrant could lead to massive job losses and pain around the holidays. The House voted yesterday to impose the agreement and the bill now goes to President Biden, who hours earlier, defended the settlement. I negotiated a contract, no one else could negotiate. With pay raises, but not more paid leave. The president says he'll keep pushing to get that for rail workers and every
Biden says climate law has 'glitches' after Macron criticism
"As he hosts his administration's first state visit, President Biden is acknowledging French concerns over his signature climate change law. Amid the pomp of French president Emmanuel Macron's White House visit, differences over trade shadow the occasion. Macron and other European leaders say incentives in the inflation reduction act favor American made climate technology and while he applauds U.S. efforts to fight climate change, the subsidies would hurt European companies. We want to succeed together not one against the other. At a joint news conference President Biden said he makes no apologies for a law he wrote, but there are glitches. There's tweaks that we can make. Macron says the nations will re synchronize their clean energy efforts, Sagar Meghani, Washington.
Amber Athey: The Hypocrisy of Biden Not Intervening Against Apple
"John Kirby yesterday on Fox goes on with Martha maccallum and in a tremendous act of journalism Martha maccallum just eviscerates John Kirby puts him on the spot I played the video earlier in the show Basically brings up this little conundrum the administration finds themselves in Biden finds it perfectly okay to attack a private company in Twitter the Biden administration oh we've got our eyes on Twitter We don't like what they're doing blah blah blah You've heard all that And yet apple that according to multiple reports was been colluding with the Chinese government to shut down AirDrop it's really weird amber Kirby had nothing to say We're not getting involved there That's a private company I mean is there a bigger example of hierarchy over hypoxia They just don't care They're in charge of like screw We don't care what hypocrites Oh it's so true They did the same thing back when they asked companies and encouraged the boycott in Georgia because they didn't like the election law that was passed there But then just a little while later when there was the question of whether companies should boycott the Olympics that were being held in China the Biden administration suddenly switched gears and said oh well their private companies they can do what they want So they like to exert their influence on corporations when it's politically convenient to them but otherwise they like to pretend they have this laissez-faire stance
Elizabeth Warren: Anti-Elon Musk and Anti-Free Speech
"Listen to what Elizabeth Warren a powerful U.S. senator from Massachusetts said about Elon Musk yesterday in the halls of Congress. Republicans say that Democrats are picking on Elon Musk. Elon Musk is doing just fine. But do you think that users have a right to freedom of speech, even if what they're saying is wrong or offensive? I think that one human being should not decide how millions of people communicate with each other. One human being should not be able to go into a dark room by himself and decide, oh, that person gets heard from that person doesn't. That's not how it should work. Wait a minute. One person, Elon Musk, who owns Twitter, who believes that you should be able to say what you want to say on Twitter, that's not how it should work. That's literally what she said. In other words, you don't have freedom of speech. In the Democrats version of America. You don't get to say how you feel about things. You meet you need to be deplatformed and censured and now it leaves to the embarrassment of a former Twitter executive, Twitter's ex safety chief, a guy named Joel Roth was interviewed at something called the knight foundation conference and he admitted finally that Twitter was wrong in censuring the New York Post's Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
Here's the Long List of Donald Trump's Achievements
"I swear of all the things we send out on the MyPillow text line, the Trump achievements list is by far and away the most popular. My text line, I can't even keep up with everybody because it's spinning like a little pinball machine because so many people are texting Trump. People don't even know. You forget, I guess. We have short memories. The list of Trump accomplishments is astounding. And you compare it to the first two years of the Biden administration? So for now, if you're sending me comments, I can't really see them because so many people are texting the keyword Trump to 806 5 5 mic and we're sending back this list of Trump's achievements during his presidency. I mean, I'm not kidding you. I'm talking thousands.
Democrats Are Pushing Union Workers to 'Take the Deal'
"On another note, economic, the house is really pushing for this deal to get done with the railroads that is, because obviously if you don't have railroads, you're going to have more problems in the economy. What's amazing to me is how so many Democrats have really led the charge on this one. We've seen that from Nancy Pelosi, we've seen that from Joe Biden. Don't forget, this was a deal that Joe Biden negotiated. He's a little surprised. Hey, why aren't these workers taking it? There's a threat of irony in this because Joe Biden, who's supposed to be mister union, Nancy Pelosi, but they seem to be failing these constituents over and over and over again. I think back even to when Hillary Clinton was campaigning and talking to coal miners and talking about she's going to put them out of business. Effectively, they're going to lose their jobs in Pennsylvania because Hillary Clinton wants to make sure that we transition away from coal. These are not exactly selling points for that constituency. And I think when that same constituency, including so many of these union workers, whether it be railroad workers, whether it be truckers, whether it be coal miners, any union job now has to look think at the political class with some concern and with some fear because those folks that were supposed to be looking out for them aren't always doing so. And I get it. Look, I think there are a lot of overall issues with unions in general and as a free market capitalist. I would like to see more power in the hands of the workers themselves and in the hands of the individuals as opposed to the unions, which, you know, take the money and then go fund, Democrat, political campaigns. There's got to be a better way and perhaps this is shining some light on the real motivations of what goes on in Washington, D.C., and it's not always on behalf of those union workers.
Is Biden Abandoning the Unions in Railroad Worker Deal Dispute?
"Pretty remarkable. But what we're seeing here between the rail union and Washington. This is the association of American railroads. It's an industry group, and they said, back in September, that new contracts needed to show an increase of 24% in wages through the year 2024. That would be for the 5 years between 2020 and 2024. And that there would be a payout of $11,000 on average when the agreement was ratified. In addition, the agreement would have provided for more vacation time and more opportunity to manage a child's or family member's illness. So the problem here, though, is even though The White House stepped in and tried to help negotiate this whole deal, it's not enough for the workers themselves. And they're saying they want more. They want more in terms of flexibility on the vacation stuff and given their unpredictable schedules and really grueling schedules. They say it really has taken such a toll on them and their personal lives and that they need to be able to have more flexibility. So whatever Biden did, it just wasn't enough. And as a result, he's now in the position of having to either stick by that agreement. I mean, it feels like 1980s all over again, right? Between the inflation and now we're dealing with transportation, union breakdowns, then negotiations. Remember when Reagan said, okay, take a hike and he challenged those union workers. Well, what is Biden going to do here? I mean, he wants to challenge them, but he simultaneously needs to avert a possible shutdown of the rail industry, I get this, I get that this is a concern. I get that it's challenging, but it perhaps speaks to why we shouldn't just have one show or just one game in town or a union running the entire shop. You get rid of the union or you meet their demands. And I think that now Biden is finding himself in a very uncomfortable position because he's supposed to be pro union, but he can't actually get this deal done. Tough luck.
Red, white, blue theme for French White House state dinner
"President Biden is set to host the first White House state dinner since 2019. French president Emmanuel Macron and some 300 other guests will feast on White House chef Chris commerford's menu. Beautiful things from the land and sea. From the starter. Butter poached Maine lobster. To beef American cheeses and pastry chef Susie Morrison's dessert. Orange to 5 cake with roasted pears. All served with a red white and blue theme in a heated south lawn pavilion were First Lady Jill Biden is evoking the memory of her mom, whom she says made every dinner feel special, even if it was just frozen fish sticks. He would bring out the China and put fresh flowers on the table. In this case, guests will not dine on official White House China, which is not allowed outside the executive mansion. Sagar Meghani, Washington.
Chinese Government Shows the Same Evil as Soviet Union, Nazi Germany
"Also encouraged that the nightmare of what's happening in China is causing the Chinese people to stand up. But I want to say that if you want to know, I think I put out a tweet this morning that a lot of times people say, well, I wonder what I would have done if I was alive during the rise of Hitler and the Nazis. Well, you can find out literally now right now because what you have happening in China, it is no different than the worst evils perpetrated by in the Soviet Union. Under the darkest days of communism and Stalin, it's no different than the worst evils perpetrated by the Nazis under Hitler. It is absolutely evil and how people react tells you everything about who they are. And so when you have companies like Apple, apple is basically a Chinese company. It would be like in the middle of the Cold War, somebody making money off of the Soviets and basically siding with them never criticizing them and criticizing the United States. Apple, the NBA, a lot of corporations, the Biden administration, the left leaning sort of Marxist leaning apologists for Chinese style authoritarianism have been muted in their criticism. This is astonishing. Imagine if Ronald Reagan were president, or if Donald Trump were president, what would he be saying about what is going on in China right now? And I think we really need to look ourselves in the mirror and understand that if you want to know what you would have done back then, look at what you're doing right now,
" biden" Discussed on The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast
"I'm going to do a getter live Q&A. So if you want to hop on that, you're welcome to do it. I'm going to talk on today's episode about Biden's gas problem. Well, Oprah, I just say Biden's other gas problem. The problem with gas, prices and Biden's attempt to constantly blame it on someone else. I'll examine the arrest of the Colbert film team for unauthorized entry into the U.S. capitol. Are they going to be charged with insurrection? I'm going to examine whether a western sanctions are hurting or helping Russia. And I also consider a couple of new fact checks in my continuing debunking of the debunkers of 2000 mules. This is the next just who's a show. America needs this voice. The times are crazy, and a time of confusion, division, and lies. We need a brave voice of recent understanding and truth. This is the dinesh d'souza podcast. We're all feeling the pinch and in some cases the squeeze on gas prices, gas prices that are reflection of a larger current of inflation. That is self inflicted almost wound on America that has been done by the Biden administration. This is not the same, by the way, as the stagflation and the gas crisis of the 1970s, Jimmy Carter was partly responsible for that as policies were inept, but there was an external driver, and that was OPEC. Now Biden would say in this case, well, there is an external driver. It's Ukraine, but the difference, of course, is that the United States has plenty of ability to meet its own gas needs. I just filled up the car, I forget $85. And I didn't start with it being on rock bottom empty, that you just were. Now 5 20 in Texas, and this means it's going to be 6, $7 in other places. Now, Biden is talking about, well, here's Biden. My message is simple. Do the companies running gas stations bring down the price you are charging at the pump. Do it now. Do it today. So this is what we get from this unhinged character. He doesn't well, I won't say he doesn't realize he does realize, but he nevertheless says these absurd things that ignore markets ignore supply and demand, ignore the effect of his own policies, ignore the fact that if you rescinded his own executive orders, things would immediately get better. Look, first of all, the gas companies don't run the gas stations. Most of these gas stations are mom and pop own, their franchises typically the owners of these gas stations make two to three cents a gallon and they don't set the price. I mean, the price is set really by the price of getting the gas, the taxes, the distribution and marketing, the refining, and there's also the global supply and demand. Now, Biden has antagonized Saudi Arabia, and so Saudi Arabia is not exactly willing to play fiddle. You may say with Biden, Biden has talked about going there. In July, we'll see if that happens. And so Biden blames everybody but himself for this. By and large, a United States makes currently U.S. oil companies deliver about 16 million barrels of oil a day. The country uses about 19 million. Do we have the other 3 million barrels? We can certainly get them. Biden doesn't want to get them. In fact, he thinks it's kind of a good thing that we're suppressing the oil and gas industry in this country so that we can make a transition to fossil fuels. He has closed three refineries. He is canceled permits and leases and Alaska and the gulf. He's reduced leases on federal land. He's told financial institutions not to lend money to oil companies. So this is an aggressive anti fossil fuels campaign by the Biden administration, and now they are in a very awkward position. They're sort of telling the oil companies we want you to manufacture more now, but long term we want you to plan for kind of phasing down what you're doing. And there's even been some suggestion that oil companies should get into the sort of climate change business and invest in alternative fuels. Well, the Chevron CEO, this is Mike worth. Sent a letter to Biden, where he basically said, listen, you've got to stop this demagoguery. A quote, addressing the situation requires thoughtful action and the willingness to work together, not political rhetoric. Your administration has largely sought to criticize and at times vilify our industry. Now, this is written in the measured prose of the corporate bureaucrat. He's actually being grossly understated. Biden's declared war on these guys, and these guys need to fight back. The tone of this letter to me is a little bit defensive. Biden recently attacked ExxonMobil. Literally saying that they are quote making more money than God. We're still God doesn't make money. But anyway, this was kind of a crude phrase, implying that this is price gouging by the oil companies. But no, this is ultimately a problem that's caused by two things. One is the United States decision to penalize Russia by imposing sanctions. We're not going to buy Russian oil. I'll talk later in the podcast, but what impact all of this is having on Russia as it turns out the Russians may be doing just fine. And so this ends up being something that a sanction that backfires on the sanction or without having a whole lot of impact on the sanctioning. Gas prices have been rising since Biden took office. This has been this started before the Ukraine war, and it's continued, perhaps exacerbated after that. Continuing with Mike Warren's letter, oil companies need clarity and consistency on policy matters ranging from leases and permits and federal lands to the ability to permit and build critical infrastructure to the proper role of regulation that considers costs and benefits. So here you have a phrase that seems to have gone out of fashion. Costs and benefits. In other words, you weigh one against the other. It's a kind of a balance sheet of risks. And that's kind of how we all live our lives, right? Am I gonna, there's a risk if I get in my car that I might get into a car crash, but that's a low risk and at the same time I have to get to work. So the benefits exceed the risks. And this kind of measured rational evaluation, which we apply to our own lives, which should apply to all economic policy, seems to have gone out the window in.

"I'm back with investigative journalist video journalist drew Hernandez, drew, we've been talking about your work in D.C. and the protesters and the double standards. Let's pivot to the southern border because you have spent some time in Yuma, Arizona, previously you are in the Rio Grande valley. You're able to see up close what is happening with the border. So give us paint a picture of what you would see on a typical day or a typical night when you're out there. I think the area that you mentioned is called the gap. Tell us what the gap is and tell us what you saw. Yeah, so specifically the gap Yuma, Arizona. This was maybe about a week ago, two weeks ago, we were down there. And this is happening every single night. So before I give your viewers kind of the picture of what's taking place, this is happening every single night. We were there between 12 midnight to 5 in the morning because we were there trying to get some coverage during the day. And obviously the Arizona sun is just intense and it's crazy. So down there at the gap, it's just open. The wall that president Trump was working on down there at human Arizona was about to be completed, but obviously because of the Biden administration. It was brought to a halt. And so when you go down there, it's like a graveyard of just border wall just laying there. We call it the ruins next to the gap where it's millions of dollars of border wall that should have been put up and it's just an open border literally right down there in Yuma, Arizona. So we were down there during the day trying to get some coverage, but there is really nothing going on because of the heat. So one of the border patrol agents stopped us and he said, come back between midnight and 5 in the morning and I promise you, you're going to see what we're seeing on a daily basis on a nightly basis. So when we showed up, sure enough, a group and when they got sent over because the cartels, right? These cartels are dangerous. They take advantage of these migrants. They rape the women, the children, they exploit them. They'll send them from Mexico into the United States so that the border patrol can just intake them, put them on a bus and then send them on a plane wherever they claim to have family, but so this specific night when they were sent from the cartels, I actually went to the cartel, one of the they call them coyotes, like the ground runners. I went up to him and I asked him, how many of these people are there? It was this massive group dinesh. It was huge. It was, and I asked him, how many of this is how many people are here in just this one group. And he said between 608 hundred in one group that is huge for one group. Just sent straight in the United States and all the footage people can see it on my Twitter drew H live, just hundreds of people coming from Mexico straight into the United States through the open border and the border patrol because of the Biden administration has activated our border troll a border patrol to essentially be an Uber service for these illegals to get into the United States of America. Scott free. And it was a huge group mostly male dinesh, okay? We're seeing mostly males down here. So the mainstream media, the Biden administration will come out and say, oh, there are asylum seekers. It's mostly women and children. They need our help. That's why we need these NGOs and these Catholic organizations to help these poor families because they're fleeing persecution and fleeing climate change. I guess that's a thing now too. Like climate change persecution, I don't know. Anyways. It's all a lie, danesh, you know this. So when they say that, it's not necessarily true because we are seeing the ratio of more men, males, like these dudes are they look fit, they look healthy in the sense that they look well fed. I mean, you take a look at the ratio down there and it's not the case dinesh. There's a lot more men coming down. They're the southern border illegally. And we have no idea. You asked the border patrol dinesh, you asked them, do we know who these people are if they do have a file in the United States if they're a known rapist or a murderer, they do have those files, and then they could deport them immediately. If they do, they know, but if they don't, we have no idea. And we're talking about millions of people dinesh and since this administration was installed, millions have come across the southern border, and this specific night in Yuma, we were seeing people come from Russia from Georgia, from India, from Afghanistan, not just Honduras and Guatemala, not these Latin American countries, all of these foreign countries because this administration has signaled to the world that now that orange man is gone, now is your time to come into the United States of America. And that's what we're seeing. And we don't even know who these people are. That's what's so dangerous about this. And the border patrol will tell you just that. And I mean, drew, it also makes an open mockery, doesn't it? Of the legal immigration process. I mean, if I were standing in a long line to be legally admitted and someone tells me, hey, just show up at the Rio Grande or just show up in Yuma, you can cross a ditch and you'll be put on a bus and dispatch on the country. I mean, for a guy going through the legal process that makes you kind of a sucker, doesn't it? Absolutely. I mean, we've been here in stories. We've been talking to people down there as well. I mean, I even personally have in my own family. Some individuals that are doing it legally. They're doing it legally. They want to do it legally. And they have been put essentially on back order for nearly two years because of this. So what people don't understand, and obviously the far left doesn't understand anything. You know this. But it's like they say they're pro immigrant. So if we do legal immigration, the actual legal immigrants that are doing things the right way actually end up getting the short end of the stick and putting on a back order and they can't come into the United States, possibly the people we actually do want here that are going to be productive to society and add to American values that are pro Americana pro patriot that will forever be grateful that they're here. And contribute to what we're doing, the American Dream. No, no, they would rather just be illegal immigration, risk little girls getting abducted, little boys getting abducted and raped, wrist women being abducted and raped. They don't care. This is all about, this is the great reset, build back better globalist agenda where they're importing the third world because they want a controllable society. They don't want any dinesh d'souza's ever making a documentary ever again exposing their election fraud. They don't want to drew Hernandez on the ground, exposing just exactly what's happening. They don't want anybody that is aware of our patriotic constitutional values, speaking out against this regime. So just import a bunch of desperate people that will never question you ever again. In my opinion, that's what this is. Well, drew, I think you've summed it up in a very powerful way. Drew, thanks for joining us..

"I'm praying for his quick recovery. This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate. Signed Kamala Harris. This was Kamala Harris in the wake of the reports of Jussie Smollett's victimization at the hands of some vicious trumpsters. These are maga people who supposedly confronted small at well. You know that the whole story is now unwound, we know that the perpetrator of the hate crime has been caught. His name as it turns out is Jussie Smollett. And of course, Kamala Harris wasn't alone, Biden, there were so many others, Cory Booker, who expressed the public sympathy for Smollett, obviously automatically accepted his story. And I'm contrasting all that all those sickeningly false claims with what the judge said in sentencing Smollett yesterday. And I love the fact that the judge sort of didn't hold back. He was very candid and he didn't mince words. I mean, I'll give you a few of his quotes. He's speaking directly to Jussie. You've turned your life upside down by your misconduct and shenanigans. You've destroyed your life as you knew it. There's nothing any sentencing judge could do to you that could compare to the damage you've done to yourself. Now, while I agree with this, I will say that this is a little bit of an understatement here because what Jussie Smollett did was I hate crime. That's the one thing the judge didn't say that when you falsely accuse a racial group of doing something to you that they didn't do. You're trying to falsely pin the blame on them. That's a hate crime and it's a hate crime directly based upon race. But let's continue with the judge's comments to see. You premeditated this crime to an extent that is amazing. So this is not something you just thought up in the spur of the moment. You recruited the two Nigerians, the so called brothers, you paid them, they went out and bought the news and all the other equipment. The judge continues to just see your profoundly arrogant selfish and narcissistic. Absolutely true. You are not a victim of a hate crime. You're not a victim of a homophobic crime. You are a charlatan. Again, all true, but understates the matter because while Jussie isn't the victim of a hate crime, he is, in fact, the perpetrator of one. And then my favorite really here, the judge, your performance on the witness stand can only be described as pure perjury. In other words, Jussie was lying and he's never stopped lying and we'll see that even after his sentencing, he's still lying. So I think in a way that, you know, to me, the most important outcome in the Jussie Smollett case is that the truth is finally out. It's been adjudicated and the judge in a sense sort of presented it with almost a kind of oracular dignity. And the sick pattern of leftist lies that began with Jussie himself, but was amplified by a dishonest media. By the way, cut from the same cloth as Jussie himself, this is finally been shut down by annul nonsense judge. And here's the sentence, and I think this is I'm actually pretty happy about it to W is like, this guy's gonna get away with it. He's gonna get absolutely nothing. Debbie always sort of takes the most pessimistic view of things. And she's often right. But in this case, the judge did in fact bring down the hammer 30 months probation, 150 days in Cook County jail, and you know what? Jossie was sent right to Cook County jail, no walking out and checking in later, go to jail right now. $25,000 fine, but in addition, a $120,000 in restitution, so Jesse is gonna be paying for this offense and I'm really glad to hear about that. But as he's leaving, jossie gives the black power salute and he basically says, oh, he starts talking about the fact that if, you know, if something happens to him in jail, he didn't commit suicide. He wants people to know right now. And so, so Debbie's like, you know what? This guy is staging. Well, Debbie thinks he's mentally ill, but I also think he's staging his next tape crime. So the ocean Darrow brothers, I mean, they might have moved on to other things, like they might be getting a call anytime soon from Jussie Smollett.

"Faced with oil prices that are high and moving higher, Joe Biden is doubling down and declaring as he just did. Quote, it is simply not true that my administration or policies are holding back domestic energy production. I mean, it's incredible that this guy can look into the cameras and say this with a straight face. And then the media just kind of nods like, yeah, that's right. He's speaking truth. Well, he's not. And since you're not going to get the YouTube or the Facebook fact checkers, checking Biden on this one, they just assume that what he says is true. They only fact check the other side, which is our side. Let me fact check Biden on this. Biden himself is been quoted saying multiple times, including in the presidential debates that he wants to end end fossil fuels. And he wants to end fossil fuels in America. He froze new drilling permits and stopped leases on federal lands. In fact, when he first took office, he moved to ban new oil and gas leases on federal lands, and that's by the way a huge slice of U.S. energy. Now that measure was stopped by the courts, but not for lack of trying by the Biden administration. One of the things that Democrats were saying and this is long before Putin invaded the Ukraine is that we have plenty of energy to meet our domestic needs. We don't need more. So you had the Democrats and you had the media. Basically, promulgating the message that, yeah, we are cutting back on oil and gas and that's a good thing because we don't really, we don't really need it. Of course, no one's going to forget. I don't think you are, that Biden shot down the Keystone XL pipeline on his very first day in office, he signed an executive order, and this was part of his campaign he himself said, the reverse a hundred or more Trump era policies.

"Here's a headline that should get your attention. This is from Fox New York. Biden administration to fund programs to hand out crack pipes. This is such this is a kind of headline. In fact, the Babylon B did a little post and Kyle Mann from the beast says if one of my writers at pitched his headline I'd have rejected it as being too absurd. But, well, it's not entirely absurd as we're gonna find out in a minute. So here are some detail from really a series of news reports. Apparently the Biden administration is concerned about quote advancing racial equity. Racial equity in what? Apparently in drug consumption in the consumption of illegal drugs, and they're thinking here, they refer to the opioid epidemic, but they're also talking about the crack cocaine and crystal meth, epidemics, and apparently Biden's decided that one solution to this epidemic, what normal people would think you are promoting the epidemic is to supply not just crack pipes, but the crack paraphernalia, the whole so called kit. Now think about this. If you bought a crack pipe with your own money and you started buying all this drug paraphernalia, that would be a crime. But for the government to do it, it's not a crime. It's apparently okay. And Jen Psaki was asked about this, the press secretary. And she goes, no, no, no, this is really misinformation. Our kit does contain a lot of paraphernalia for drug users, but it doesn't contain the actual crack pipe. So The White House is pushing back at the idea that they're kind of handing out the crack pipes. They do agree that they're handing out what they call safe smoking kits. This is an echo of the so called safe sex kits of earlier decades. And apparently there's alcohol, swabs and lip balm and clean syringes and other material. So I don't think there's really any doubt here that the Biden administration is in the name of combating drugs. Actually promoting

Some 800 people showed up to The White House earlier this week to watch President Biden put his name to paper and sign the $1 trillion infrastructure rail into law. And if the words of praise for the bill are any indication, Democrats see his agenda as nothing short of transformational. Your agenda is historic, transformative, and the biggest boldest investment in our country's history. Now they're getting one of the largest infrastructure bills ever. It's historic legislation means for everyday Americans. President Dwight Eisenhower signed the national interstate and defense highways act in the middle of the Cold War. And today, president Joe Biden will sign the infrastructure investment and jobs act into law. Coupled with the social and climate bill in Congress now, Biden's agenda may top $3 trillion. We are talking about real money here. And how does that stack up to the Democrats of years past that Biden and others like to compare themselves to? We are joined by national political correspondent John McCormick to find out. Welcome back. Hey, thanks. So what's the answer? How does Biden stack up to FDR in Lyndon Johnson the two democratic presidents who had the biggest social agendas of the last century? Well, the early evidence suggests he won't be able to match those two democratic icons in part because we're just living in vastly different economic and political times. We tried to sort of benchmark this by looking at the rate of spending compared to GDP that FDR did as part of the new deal. And then what Biden is already gotten part of the bipartisan infrastructure Bill through Congress plus this very large social and green energy legislation that he still wants to get past. So he looked at the price tags as a shared GDP and really when you do it that way, the new deal spending is still two to three times larger than what Biden is likely to get through. So it's Biden's legislation is a big deal, but it's just not in the league of FDR or LBJ's great society legislation of the 60s. Of course, it's not all determined by GDP and dollars, right? I mean, what about the substance? Any idea of how lasting the impact of these bills might be in comparison? Yeah, it's always hard to know, but, you know, Republicans are poised to potentially gain control of one or both chambers of Congress next year. They're going to be tempted to potentially roll some of this stuff back if they have the votes. And also the funding of a lot of these programs because of the way federal budgeting works, the spending is not guaranteed for eternity. It's always hard to take a benefit back after you give one to the American public if it's something that's popular, but in this case, several of these items in the social spending agenda Bill are really only financed for 5 to 6 years. So future congresses will have to decide whether this is something that they want to renew or not. And of course, it's going to depend on what the country's political control is like at that time. You report that big spending, these large expansions of government tend to happen after national crises. What do you mean? History shows that they're oftentimes is long-term spending after a major incident in the country, the Cold War helped spawn the intern state highway system, the 9 11 terrorist attacks produced new consolidated agencies to deal with Homeland Security and national intelligence. And so economists call this actually the ratchet effect. And it's something that once something is introduced into federal spending after a crisis, the spending ratchets up and it doesn't tend to ratchet back down. Whether the current crisis that we're in the COVID-19 pandemic is similar to that sort of as hard to know because the economy has snapped back much more quickly than it did say after the depression. So, you know, there may not be as much sort of public angst and desire for programs to continue. Does Biden have the public support to expand the government like he wants to? And how does that public support compare to his predecessors? This is actually a question that Gallup asked routinely in its polling. And what it found was in 2000 Americans were more supportive of an active role for government. And you can kind of understand that. The pandemic was just breaking and it was at its peak. And so people were looking to government for how are we going to get through this crisis? But then we saw here in 2021, the numbers sort of inverted in September Gallup asked the question again and they found that attitudes had shifted back to more sort of a hands off approach and 52% said the government is doing too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses and 43% want the government to do more to solve the country's problems. So just in the course of one year between 2020 and 2021, we saw the numbers invert in terms of people's views of what the government should or should not be doing. In Biden's facing a federal debt level that no other president has done before. Does that limit his new deal ambitions? Yeah, it does because, you know, the public does worry about federal spending and debt. It's not sort of a day to today or bread and butter issue, but it is something that is sort of in everybody's back of their brain that this stuff is going to have to be paid for at some point. And the current annual budget deficits and the total federal debt have been running at levels roughly around a 100% of GDP and at levels that I've been the highest since World War II. So that's going to make for a different environment than times when Roosevelt was dealing with trying to get legislation passed or LBJ was trying to get legislation passed when the debt and deficit just was not nearly as large. Most Republicans, and even some Democrats have started to sound the alarm on the cost of all the spending. Does history tell us how long we may have to wait to learn the true cost of these new programs or the expansion of the existing programs? Yeah, it does take time and it will depend on whether these programs become ongoing programs or whether there are things that just last for.

"I'll beasely obvious to everybody. Yeah the whole This is not that. Emma saigon zero resemblance no resemblance biden was pissed that anybody brought that up. And you know. I'm thinking about it. At least in con- we had an embassy and americans came to the embassy then they got evacuated from from there and a couple of other places. Now we have ten to fifteen thousand americans in and around kabul. They don't know where to go. The embassies closed. It's damn near impossible to get to the airport or very difficult and very dangerous. And there's i mean there's not even a helicopter at the embassy alternative. Well jigsaw ovens a guy that said to savannah guthrie over the weekend a savannah helicopters have been the mode of transportation for the. Are you me. That's embarrassing how the hell has joe biden not been on the phone with world leaders trying to salvage this thing. What has he been doing. I can't imagine. I can't imagine. I mean if indeed the chinese have sway with the taliban and the russians diplomatic channels with them and perhaps they are being exploited secretly. And i don't know about it. That's entirely possible. But but they stated that biden hasn't even talked to the leaders. You'd think that that's not a conversation that starts at your lower middle level and bourbons. Its way up. That's when the big guy picks up the phone and says hey we we need help and we need it now. So so jake. Sullivan answers that question. Can you play that one again.

" biden" Discussed on POLITICO Dispatch
"When you watch the biden team they have a playbook for how they handle crises. And that playbook is you. Don't respond right away. They would wait it out. They were taking their time. There were think about their messaging and then they came out and always seem to work for them. This time. it did not work for them. The president was hardly visible as he deposited his weekend retreats at camp david he left it to his spokesperson in a statement to reiterate that he does not regret his decision. An orderly drawdown is the phrase. The administration is sticking with in backfired. Royally and that is because he is the commander in chief. Commander in chief cannot be seen sitting alone at a table and camp david when this crisis is happening in that is what's coming down on new speak today the unfolding situation afghanistan developments that taking place in the last week. The steps were taking address rapidly-evolving events so what he had to do by speaking to the nation was first of all just show himself but also just to try to bring back. That confidence stands squarely behind my decision. Twenty years i've learned the hard that there was never a good time. Withdraw us forces. I'm jeremy siegel this is. Politico dispatch and today. This is without question the worst moment of his presidency natasha correctly on the blame game over afghanistan. In how it's placed president biden in a by this is the most incoming he has taken and the biggest probably disappointment. I would say from people even his own party even if they're not saying publicly they're saying it privately and that is because you know biden had really put himself forward as he is the foreign policy guy he's the quote unquote adult in the room. Ladies and gentlemen political wisdom halls that americans. the american public doesn't vote on foreign policy. But i think that's an old way of thinking. He said he separated himself from the pack over and over in the primary because he had all of this experience as vice president and for decades in the senate and of course on for relation senate committee twenty nineteen foreign policy is domestic policy in my view and domestic policy is foreign policy. They're deeply connected. Deeply connected set of choices. We make about how to advance the american way of life and our vision for the future and this was an area foreign policy. You know pulling out of afghanistan. This was an area where frankly people thought okay. No no one's gonna have this better than joe biden and so what ended up happening here. The speed with which the taliban took over afghanistan the us deploying more troops after the fact you know days after all of this is happening. I mean it's just it is. It is so goes up against the grain of everything that biden said he was. I think the most troubling. Then you're is. You're seeing the desperation of these afghans trying to get out terrified of the taliban. You know you're here in congress. People talk about how people are reaching out to them and saying that they're making suicide pacts in their in their communities because they're so terrified of the taliban kidnapping there they're girls. It could not get worse for joe biden at this moment because those headlines in the next couple of weeks i mean they will be relentless and those will go right back at biden fairly or unfairly but it will. It'll be on him. I wanna talk about how the administration has handled the fallout from this especially given the headlines. That are coming back to bite him because you mentioned that strategy. They've had of trying to let the dust settle in these situations and how that hasn't exactly worked here. There were days where americans watched terrifying images Terrifying stories coming out of afghanistan and didn't hear from their president. How would you characterize the way. The administration handled the situation over the weekend as the fall of kabul unfolded. Some of it is. You know it's just it's plainly it's unspeakable you can't really spin it. What do you say. There are scenes of panic and pandemonium in couple airport. Today as desperate people pour onto the runway trying to feed the country in what can only be described as chaotic exodus. Now people are literally kicked clinging on the us military our across as they tried to take off the us is in charge of their. You know you did have. Lincoln dispatch to the to the morning shows and saying this is not saigon. This is not our saigon back. This is manifestly not saigon the fact that matters this we went to afghanistan twenty years ago with one every time. He said that it just brought more attention to that parallel. The images that we're seeing is there's a lot of reminiscent of the last days of the vietnam war shows the rest of the world that when we're so dead set on doing something. We can't even orchestrate something that we've been staging for a long time in a way it looks like side-on two point zero to me. This is the beginning of biden's supposedly the beginning of a two week vacation for biden. He was going to go to camp david for part of it and to rehoboth beach back in delaware and they released a photo over the weekend of joe biden sitting at a table. A very long expansive table. All of the seats are empty. So he's sitting there alone staring at a screen and just it's real question of the imagery. Here pressure is growing on the biden administration to respond to that turmoil and afghanistan as the president faces criticism over. Us troops withdrawal obviously. They're trying to show that he was engaged in this his engagement. But just the image of the president sitting alone staring at a screen in the middle of this crisis it did not convey a lot of confidence to the american people and they're just getting really getting ridiculed for it. Republicans here are seeing vulnerabilities. And they're they're just jumping on them. There's you know they're trying to cast biden as you know. He failed cure somebody who said he was going to be this command tough commander in chief and he failed and it is very political and even in the midst of this crisis so on monday afternoon After the white house was criticized over it silence. The nation did finally hear from biden in a speech and one of the central messages that he had was that he did not regret his decision and that he didn't want to hand down this war to another american president. I will not repeat the mistakes we've made in the past mistake of staying in fighting indefinitely conflict is not in the national interest of the united states. This is a conflict that began under president. Bush vice president dick cheney and defense secretary donald rumsfeld played a big role in pushing the start of the war it continued under president obama and president trump. I mean is there validity to what biden said yesterday in the argument that if this does impact his legacy as as president he's essentially taking the fall for american leaders.

We are watching the stunning destruction of myriad policies in america in real time overnight so quickly under the biden administration from the border to inflation. We consumer sentiment hit a ten year low according to breitbart. We've got afghanistan crumbling. I'm telling you everything the left touches they destroy.

"It has no benefit to you as an american citizen as taxpayer as an individual was forced to pay these tolls. It is a lose lose all the way all the way around for the american people. It's a lose lose in regard to actually improving our infrastructure. It's a lose lose when it comes to the amount of money you're going to have to spend and it's a lose lose when it comes to resources for the federal government because as i mentioned the federal government pays that money back to the private companies with interest with interest. So that's what the reality of the situation is. And i don't think that progressive should vote in favor of this. Bipartisan bill under any circumstance. Because what this is. It's reminiscent of what obama passed after the two thousand eight economic collapse. What he did was essentially provide a massive giveaway to hedge funds and private equity firms. Who then went off. I mean there were. there was a fire sale. They went off and they got the best deals on a massive amount of real estate which they then turned Rental property and priced ordinary americans. Completely out of the housing market and started under obama now with biden's infrastructure bill. You have corporate interests with their eyes set on really Draining what they can out of the few resources we have left in our public infrastructure so Last couple points here that are so important and number one. Did you know that trump at the same exact proposal. Yeah he did yeah. So when when trump proposed democrats and the media were like. Oh this is outrageous bind proposals. Same thing they're like bravo. Bipartisan compromise biden is such a great leader. It's amazing it's sickening. By the way have you heard any of these facts in mainstream media. Have you heard them talking about asset recycling they tell you that you're going to pay tolls and fees the rest of your life. That's what we're celebrating with. This bipartisan compromise. How funny they didn't tell you any of that right and it's interesting. I wonder who the corporate media is working for. Now we work for you guys. So i'm gonna read a member. Because i hadn't thought of this point and further devastating kid tested bureau approved their handle on our website. Ty t. dot com slash join. You literally joined the show. We read your comments on these stories. This person wrote in my favorite part of driving is having a corporation intentionally create traffic congestion and they give me the option to pay them to avoid the mess they mate and honestly i had not thought of it that way it's not just that you're paying tolls is not just that they're not going to upgrade the roads david incentive to create a terrible road that forces you to take the toll version which they charge you so much more the worst they make the road the more money they make are we insane. This is what our government is giving to us and we're supposed to celebrate an immediate cheers on look. They're done this in other countries. It's not just australia. Where they privatize roads and bridges and turnaround zana. Told you and i made a great point in our production meeting. This is exactly what they did in russia where the olive works. Just everything all grab everything. They made all the money me. Gazillions of dollars and the russian people got totally screw. They did it. In bolivia where they privatize the water in nearly led to a revolution dolan. Good side of that is that they've been electing almost ever. Since with the exception of our coups from time to time. Okay but the told the believings you cannot collect water because we gave the water to a private company. And so this is where we're headed guys. They're selling off the country bit by bit while pretending to build it. We got to take a break but when we come back. Gop senator bill cassidy would have believed that the only people who really care about the infrastructure is women because they need the roads to go shopping. We'll be back with that story and more back on. Trt jake.

"Favor. Fifty five opposed six abstentions. So for people. Who didn't grow up in the catholic. Faith when is communion communion is considered the central kind of right and ritual of catholics. That keeps them literally. Little see like in communion with each other and with god and that's when people have been to a catholic service when you see them go up to the priest and the priest can give them like a wafer and drink that represents the body and blood of jesus so it means it's this kind of mysterious ritual where god is supposed to be in you at that moment and under catholic teaching. You're supposed to be in a certain state when you when you do this. And over the centuries catholic teaching has changed about. Exactly how communion works like when it first started in the early centuries. A lot of people didn't take communion because you know there was such a kind of emphasis on the rigidity of being in the right state and then it became more popular and then they had different rules about how often each year supposed to confess and take communion whether you're supposed to be fasting for many hours before hand or just one so there's been there's been fluxes in sort of its popularity but i mean it's become much more common and regular part of people's worship in recent years and then why is this such an important part of the experience of being catholic in catholicism which is the biggest faith group in the united states. There's a lot of what you'd call kind of powerful ritual you know when you think of catholic churches here like this ornate and there's pictures and sculptures of jesus on the cross and and the smell of the incense and you know it's a very intense kind of body leave people say often it's like a very bodily kind of faith so you have this image of some of ingesting god and being one with god so i mean. It's it's usually capitalized community. But it's also little see like that. You are saying you know that you are part of this community part of part of the catholic faith when you when you take communion and some people i mean especially right now having been you know so many people being away from that service for for the past year for many people whether they go each week or they go a couple times a year. It's very like intimate part of their their life. They're an technically. You know. I mean if you're you're supposed to say confession regularly you're going through these rituals that you embrace and believe that. Means so much to you and communion is sort of the culminating one in the trash can just like stop someone from doing this in. It feels like you know stopping some worn from parang rate. Yeah well it's i mean. Most people would tell you like this doesn't happen. I mean that shirt dino. Catholics don't get grilled like when they show it when they appear for communion. What technically it's supposed to meet. The onus is on the worshiper rate. Because you're it's supposed to be that you present yourself when you know you're in the right state of mind and catholicism talks a lot about the primacy of conscience saw these things are kind of weighing in the picture But the difference with something like this is. That biden is a public official. I mean for people. Who are you know a little bit older. They can certainly remember. The church would not give community people who were a divorced and remarried outside of the church. Where people who were living together. Who weren't married. It's something that i think was at one time. Like more community enforced where know the church was was more rigid and people sort of police each other more and it just wasn't done you know if you're in a situation where you're living with somebody or you had a child and you weren't married or whatever that whatever the situations were and you hadn't gone through the process of confessing and getting permission. You just didn't go now. Obviously the country is you know has matured diverse views and catholics. American catholics have very similar views as the american public. In general when you pull them on all these things whether that's support for abortion rights which a majority of catholics hold to lgbtq rights and stuff like that never mind getting into sexual issues you know whether that's capital punishment or helping the poor and that kind of thing. So i mean you don't have people being turned away except you have had especially since the nineteen eighties with some people call. It's drizzly like a wafer watch where politicians catholic politicians who supported abortion. Rights have been have been watched. And so you had mario cuomo and dick durbin and annoy and john kerry had many bishops in two thousand four when he was running threatening to not give him communion. Actually joe biden was denied communion. Last fall in the southeast. When he was. I think he was just on the campaign trail How did president putin respond to oldness. President biden has barely spoken the word abortion since he's been president. I mean he's really. We've reached out to him for comment. You know last week. And over weeks of preparing for this and they. There's never been any comment from his administration. He was asked on friday about it. The catholic bishops are moving on this resolution that would prove prevent you and others who've supported abortion from receiving communion. Are you concerned about the rift in the catholic church. I feel personally about that. That's a private matter. I don't think that's happen. I'm assuming he meant. I don't think me others will be turned away from communion but we have a abortion rights case coming before the supreme court soon so it really puts his presidency in a conflict with part of his church and he talks about his faith but not not much. I mean he talks more about it in a personal way. He doesn't kind of in allies teachings in a lot of detail. He talks about it. Were in a personal way and the comfort and role that it plays in his life immediate. This feels like it could be perceived as a double standard because you know a bill barr attorney general under. The trump administration is catholic. And the he revved up the federal death penalty in was he censured for it. Well see this is right okay. So whether when you look at other things whether it's you know some catholics have raised. You know fell barring the death penalty or catholic lawmakers and the treatment of immigrants The you know muslim travel ban. I mean many things you know. Racism is against catholic teaching as well. You know cats. Teaching is heavily focused on welcoming immigrants and refugees. So then you kind of get into this. You know what you. Sometimes you'll hear people say while there's things that are you know basically Policies that are sort of subject to difference of opinion. Like you could say you know. Everybody wants to help the poor and help immigrants but they have different ideas about how they should do that. So the death penalty is sort of in. This category has been i mean. Recently per pope francis said you know the catholic church is officially against the death penalty. It had always been almost almost almost that but it didn't push all the way over because there was a sense that basically under criminal justice sometimes this is justice that you have justice up against life. This is not an innocent life. The way a fetuses so people who support you know what happened with bill barr would say technically. It's different so then you kind of get into this will technically is really abortion. The only thing if you're saying you're supportive of life. Okay so there is a difference between you know a fetus a crazed killer or something like that but the bottom line is. What's the goal of catholic teaching. You know what is it that if you're going to kind of negotiate to the you know splitting hairs. What's the crux of it. President biden is only the second catholic to serve as president of the united states. What do you feel like. His presidency tells us about the state of the catholic church right now. Only one half of the catholic vote compared to john f. kennedy who won. I think somewhere between seventy and eighty percent of the catholic vote. So you know. Basically catholics are divided. Shines a light up to sort of okay. Who's the catholic role model for catholics. Fight over authority. Who becomes the bishop communion becomes this kind of seal of approval. And so it's just very. It's very.
