Trump's Attorney Alina Habba Talks 1st Amendment Rights Violations
"He is, Dan Bongino. All right, I should have told you about it in the last segment, but I'm really happy to have a guest. I want to get right to her because she's kind of tight on time right now. One of Donald Trump's attorneys, you've seen her on TV, on Fox and elsewhere doing a great job defending President, former President Trump. Alina Haba. Alina, thanks for spending some time with us. I know you were on a long line here, so we appreciate it. Of course, anything for you, Dan. Thanks for having me. You're the best. It was great seeing you UFC, at the by the way. But let me get right to it. Mark Levin put out a great tweet the other day. I just tweeted it about all of the rights President Trump doesn't seem to have in what we thought was a constitutional public. Let's go through them one by one. I mean, you guys don't seem to have First Amendment rights, Alina. These gag orders for a man who is the leading and likely Republican nominee for president while he's running for president and being attacked on the police state running against the police state seem like their political orders and not effective judicial legal ones. Well, that's right. That's 100 % right. And then if you had any question about it, we had to take the last one where they actually gagged me as well as the president and said that I couldn't even make objections in court. I couldn't make objections in court where my job is to object, is to protect the president. I was gagged. And the fact is we took it up to the appellate division. We won. We had it stayed. And now we've submitted papers explaining how completely unconstitutional it is to take anybody's First Amendment right. Political speech is overtly protected on a higher level than anything else. And they are trying to take the leading candidate's voice away and they're trying to take his lawyer's voice away,

"Critical test vote on the spending bill today. Israeli leaders rebuffed mounting pressure to halt the military campaign in the southern Gaza Strip, vowing to press on until Hamas is eradicated. The U .N. warns that civilians have no safe harbor amid the bombing. The months -long blockade of military promotions by one U .S. senator has to come an end.

More than 400 military promotions under four stars have now been confirmed by the Senate. Pentagon spokesman Brigadier General Pat Ryder says they're urging Tuberville to lift all the holds. It's clearly vital and critical organizations, all of which require experienced senior leaders in those positions. The fourth Republican presidential debate kicks off tonight in Alabama.

If Kari Lake Wins a Senate Seat THIS Would Be Her Top Priority
"And one of the things they've flipped the script on Carrie, which I want to get your take. Carrie's running for U .S. Senate, by the way, in Arizona. I'm sorry I should have mentioned that. assume I a lot of you know, but Carrie Lee, Carrie with a K, K -A -R -I. Great candidate. This is an opportunity right here. One of my priorities and a lot of Republicans I talk to and good conservatives is a swamp house cleaning, especially at the law enforcement and intel community. I don't deny there are some decent people left, some whistleblowers I know have told me that, that there are a lot of people there who are great guys and women. They're out there investigating bank robberies in the Arkansas office and the FBI. They have nothing to do with any of this. Matter of fact, most of them love Trump. There are people at the top, however, Kerry. The FBI and DOJ, you know, have been involved in a number of conspiracy devastating facts, not theories. So if you were elected to the US Senate, can we be assured that this is going to be one of your priorities too? Because I know you can't stand these people as much as our audience can. Yeah. It's a top priority. We have to. Our federal government has been weaponized and turned on we, the people. I mean, this is the tyranny that our founding fathers warned us about. And maybe, you know, nobody saw that that's what the tyrants would be now. Here we are, you know, after the Revolutionary War. And we are dealing with basically a push toward going back to a globalist running the show. You know, they freed us from the globalist King George, and now we're facing globalism taking over and Americanism being gone. And so this is battle what the is. We have to go after the bureaucrats and the bureaucratic administrative state and our federal government. We're watching what they're doing to President Trump, and they're doing it to a whole lot of other people as well. And I think we've got to do a major house cleaning and I'm talking shrink these departments down if we to have starve them of the money in order to get some of these crooked people out. And the good thing is, if we can find silver the lining, Dan, is we're starting to see who's who is as much of a struggle as this is as much. It's dark. It's not fun. It's

Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Did you ever see the movie The Blob starring Steve McQueen? The blood curdling threat of The Blob. Well, way back when, Eric had a small part in that film, but they had to cut his scene because The Blob was supposed to eat him. But he kept spitting him out. Oh, the whole thing was just a disaster. Anyway, here's the guy who's not always that easy to digest. Eric Metaxas! Welcome to the show, folks, in the year of our Lord, 2023. I am still in Dallas. I can't explain it. I live in New York, yet I find myself in Dallas. Very happy to be here and happy to have as my guest for this hour, our friend Roger Stone. Roger, welcome back. Eric, it is always great to be with you. You're fun to talk to. That's like my greatest compliment because we can talk about very substantive things we do, but it's also fun to talk to you. I don't know where to start. How about if we start mocking tonight's debate? Can we do that? I think that's an excellent place to start because the debates for president who have declared against President Trump are debate might be, I will be down the street with President Donald J. Trump at a gigantic rally in Hialeah, Florida, which promises to be one of his biggest rallies of all time. Recent polls show, of course, that he is routing the sitting governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, right here in the state that both men call home. I feel very strongly, Eric, that it's time to end this charade. Trump is not leading by 10 points or 20 points or 30 points. He is leading in some places by as much as 60 points among the rank and file Republican primary and caucus goers across the country. This is his party. This is his nomination. This is his destiny. And these other candidates, frankly, are wasting time. They're wasting resources. And in the case of Governor DeSantis, he is now creating and providing talking points for Joe Biden in his harsh attacks on the man who single handedly is responsible for making him governor, which seems to me to be extraordinarily ungrateful at a minimum. I just want to put my cards on the table as a serious journalist, which I am not, that I am. Most people know that I'm a I'm a Nikki. I'm a Nikki Haley guy. And if you're if you look at the camera right now, folks, you can see that I'm a big I'm a big Nikki Haley guy. I believe in foreign wars. I believe in the deep state. And I just want to say I'm not down with this crazy mega stuff. In seriousness, all this the GOP debate tonight, I you know, it's hard for me not to mock it only because Trump is so far ahead in the polls. But you realize that what the people involved, maybe not all of them, but most of those on that debate stage are going to say is wait till Iowa. Wait till Iowa. Iowa is going to be a game changer. Oh, you'll see. You'll see. That's really. And you realize, Roger, that that genuinely speaking, they're they're hoping that everything changes and that there's going to be momentum that, you know, probably Governor DeSantis thinks that he will win in Iowa or do something to kind of change the narrative. I don't even remember. When does Iowa happen? When is one of the Iowa caucuses exactly? Iowa happens very early next year. But look, this is a situation in 1980 when I was for Ronald Reagan had a point lead in Iowa, but he took that lead for granted. He only visited a couple of times. He gave big picture, big event speeches. He didn't do much.
Fresh "President Trump" from Bloomberg Daybreak
"Well, hi, Nathan. Good morning. I think that is what he truly believes, that he perhaps would prefer not to run at the age of 81, but he feels he's got to beat Trump. The main point I would make is that the train has left the station in all of these states that have filing deadlines. There's a few still left. think But I if you haven't gotten in the race now like Liz Cheney, it's too late. Interesting that you bring up Liz Cheney. I'd like to get back to that in just a few minutes. But we do have a public race happening right now. Several candidates have dropped out at this point, we but do have a debate coming up tonight. It's feeling more and more like a race for second place with the also -rans against President Trump. Is there any time at this point for someone to emerge as the Trump alternative? Well, there's been a long history, Nathan, of Iowa and New Hampshire doing some really strange things that defy the polls. And I do think Christie has done pretty well in New Hampshire. Obviously, Nikki Haley has had a very good last couple of months, and even Ron DeSantis has gotten quite a few endorsements, and he's all gone to 99 counties in Iowa. So there's still room, but whoever wins is going to finish a distant second to Trump. It speaks to the polling that we've seen nationally that he is the overwhelming frontrunner in this race. So I guess it sort of raises the question, what are these candidates doing at this point, the way this race has been going? I think some of the candidates are hoping he stumbles and it could happen, or hoping that he doesn't do well in one of the early states. I would not be shocked to see Trump win by only 20 or 25 points in Iowa or New Hampshire. But as we go on to some of the bigger states, I think Trump will be in pretty good shape. Getting into a general election race, looks it like the frontrunners at this point are already treating it like a general election race at this point. How do you see it shaking out a Biden -Trump rematch? Something that on voters both sides of the aisle have said in pretty overwhelming majorities they simply don't want to see. Yeah, most people I talk to say they favor none of the above. But you've got to vote for somebody. And I do think that, like many elections, a key factor is the demographic groups, and that has one really glaring problem for Biden, and that is young people. Young voters overwhelmingly are just lukewarm. If Biden only ties among young people, he won them by 20 points four years ago. If he just ties among young people, he's got a real tough time getting reelected. Some of the different dynamics between 2020 and 2024, have you former President Trump facing multiple legal actions, the possibility of jail time, and now just this week, you have President Biden possibly facing a formal impeachment from inquiry the slim Republican majority in the House. How do you see those factors playing in? Well, there's a lot on the plate, obviously. I think the impeachment fight will go nowhere. I mean, maybe there'll be a hearing or two, but the idea that there could actually be an impeachment and conviction of Biden, just not going to happen. Trump has his own problems. I think that the big factor in the next few weeks is going to be the economy. If it stays okay, I think maybe Biden's numbers go up a bit. Since you mentioned the possibility of a third -party run, let's get into that because we did have that report yesterday in the Washington Post of Liz Cheney promoting her memoir and floating the possibility of a third -party run. We've had no labels putting that possibility out there as well. Could a third party play spoiler in this race? It sure could, but I can't see a third -party candidate having any chance of winning the presidency. That would include Liz Cheney and it would include Robert F Kennedy Jr. Kennedy is around 20 % in New Hampshire, which is impressive, but I don't think he can win. Eventually, people like that would be viewed as spoilers, as somebody who might throw the election to Trump. So you would think that a party third would spoil in favor of Trump that they wouldn't necessarily pull votes away from former President Trump. Well, hard to say with Kennedy. A lot of people who are anti -government don't like interference in their lives like Kennedy and they like Trump. So they would be fighting for the same voters. Liz Cheney would be an anti -Trump protest candidate and I just don't see her candidacy going far. Okay. Greg Valliere, as always, good to get your Greg thoughts. Valliere is Chief US Policy Strategist at AGF Investments. Karen. Well, Nathan, it's time now for the Bloomberg ETF report and Bitcoin is about $44 ,000 this morning after its longest winning run since May. The largest digital asset climbed for six days through yesterday adding roughly 16%. Its 2023 rebound from last year's crypto route now stands at 163%. We get more on the run with Bloomberg Sam Unstead. And here's Bloomberg Sam Unstead. The thing underpinning that more than anything else is ETFs. You know, the potential ETFs that these are going to be approved, that that's going to sort of mark this maturation of the Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency currency market. But it does feel like, you know, this new rally is also coinciding with these bets on FedCuts coming next year. And so it may well be that Bitcoin is becoming part of that story or one of those assets that you start to look at when you are thinking about the central bank story. And again, Bitcoin currently around $44 thousand, one hundred dollars.

Sean I'm tired of losing. I'm sick of losing. I'm a big football fan. It's my weakness. I know I get a lot of hate mail for it. Oh it's woke. I don't care and one of the things about football is if you lose you get fired. At the RNC though if you lose you remain. Explain this to me Sean. I don't know it seems like that's almost a fact of politics anymore. Is it the watching these debates for example. Why on earth are people who hate us and hate people who read us and follow us and hate what we believe. Why are we letting them run these debates and attack our people. It would almost be like giving the Yankees front office the ability to interview anyone who's going to go and play for the Red Sox or like letting the Redskins and I still call them the Redskins and I always will. Letting the Redskins coach like pick who's going to play for the Cowboys. It's so dumb and yet we seem to do it debate after debate and year after year and I simply don't understand it at all. Yeah and so I want to play a piece of tape here. So Ronna McRomney was asked about her involvement in Virginia and it's always deflection. It's blaming other side and Larry O 'Connor who's a total superstar. I really like Larry. He's been in the movement for quite some time. He's so calmly and beautifully asked this question was like hey why wasn't the RNC more involved. His reaction afterwards is just epic. So let's play this piece of tape here. It's always somebody else's fault. It's never the national party's fault. Play cut 155. You don't let people lie about you and let it not let it go unanswered. Let it go unanswered and our candidates have got to do this. You can walk and chew gum at the same time. You can go and say this is where I stand. The Democrats are lying and now let's talk about crime, schools, border, fentanyl, and national security. I just want to clarify one quick thing though. The RNC had no involvement in these elections in Virginia per Governor Youngkin's request. We not well we were told in the summer they didn't need us that they had all the money and they were good. So now we've learned that the Virginia GOP chair Rich Anderson says that he asked the RNC to match the Democrats with one million dollars of a late cash infusion into the state. The RNC the only excuse they have is they can't raise money but that was supposed to be an thing. honest She said well we have no money but you're not raising any money because donors don't trust you the grassroots don't trust you. Sean help me understand. Yeah you've got two jobs as a as a party leader. You raise money and you set up state -by -state infrastructure so that the party can succeed which means by the way getting out to vote and setting up get out to vote infrastructure. So your your job is to supposed to raise a truckload of money and you're supposed to set up everything so that we can match the other side match the Democrats and how they get out the vote how they do ballot chase and all that. I've seen like I don't pay attention all that much to the fundraising so I won't I won't comment on that but it's been almost four years since a completely absurd election in 2020 when the Democrats just ran circles around us in in their absentee ballot chase their mail -in chase. I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence and that in states where we really need to win like Arizona and Georgia that either the state party or the national party is doing much of anything to make sure the Dems don't run in 2024 the exact same playbook they ran against us in 2020. So I'm I'm honestly kind of befuddled I feel like I'm watching office space watching the Bob's interview the employees and thinking what would you say you do here because I can't figure it out. So moving forward here Sean let's emphasize on the NBC news thing so we're after a very disappointing night and then Lester Holt and Welker are cross -examining our candidates just I want just the most objective way you could look at it what candidate do you think separated themselves from the other and who do you think missed an opportunity at that debate? Oh I thought Hveke was awesome I love how he came right out of the gate and trashed the moderators and basically said you're a whole bunch of Russian collusion hoaxers like who do you think you are that's how you handle these moderators and and I think Newt Gingrich was the one who who provided a perfect model for this he did it in during the 2012 primary where every time he got a question in one of these debates from a total left -wing hack masquerading as a journalist he just took him to town so you know your premise is garbage you're full of crap I think you're liars and here's what I'm going to talk about instead of the uh was fantastic um it's hard for me to say who the loser was in these because they kind of feel like loser debates to me and in the first place it's like watching the kids table so um I think the whole debate thing in it in and of itself we need to have a discussion about um but but I thought Hveke and the way he handled the moderators was great and I wish every single Republican from now until forever would treat these hack propagandists the exact same way. So I totally agree and I'll just say this you know Ron DeSantis received the first question and he gave his kind of typical and by the way he's the best governor in America I want everyone to be very clear I get hate mail when I say that Ron DeSantis remains the best governor in America he's not a good presidential candidate he's running a poor campaign it's the brutal honest truth and it's hard to watch he gives this fine answer you know I'm Ron DeSantis and people can't pay for gas and bah bah bye feel your pain yeah whatever Ron how awesome you were just you it was like a t -ball you could have went right after NBC news you could have just used them as the villain and the vague kind of picked up you know the trillion dollar bill that was laying right there and he called for Rana's resignation on top of it it was Rana's resignation the RNC is a bunch of losers we have a culture of losing and NBC news you guys are the complete worst and he got the headlines honestly he got the headlines across the head you know across the board and people really appreciate it because they want a fighter so let me ask you uh kind of shifting gears here Sean Joe Manchin not running for the senate the significance of this and how should we think about a potential no labels candidacy that is bubbling up with Millard Willard Mitt Romney and Mr. Manchin yeah so I got a kick out of Manchin's press release that he put out and said you know I've accomplished what I want to do in my career and I'm very proud of what I've done and and I have hopes of doing other things buddy you're retiring and not running again because you were going to get your butt kicked because you were Joe Biden's little laugh dog when you were supposed to be representing uh West Virginia voters so I think we need to be honest about why he's not going to be a senator again and it's because no one in his own state likes him the people who know him best don't want him as their senator anymore and and that's why he's not going to be running again so you bring up Mitt Romney uh man they are they are birds of a feather in that thing Mitt Romney's only the only consistent thing he has done his entire career in politics is run he gets in once and then he does such a poor job that everyone in the state hates him so he can't run again so he just finds like a new state to run you know he was a one -term governor in Massachusetts he got smoked in the presidential so he decided to move to Utah and run for senate there and no one likes him there anymore because he's a jerk uh and so what does he have left to do the only thing that Joe Manchin has left to do which is avoid any actual real job and just stay in politics and find a bunch of left -leaning voters who pretend they're independent but you can bilk and make a living off of so that's what's happening with Joe Manchin and I can't take this no label stuff seriously at all it's just a grift for a bunch of idiots who are hated by the left and hated by the right don't want to get a real job and have no home to go to go back to by the way Federalist you guys do great work it's really amazing just 30 seconds rip on the Federalist how are

for you and we have a video to accompany it in a second will John Fetterman cost Joe Biden the election divisions among democrats over Israeli -Palestinian conflict have highlighted the fault with lines in the party John Fetterman's actions are unlikely to sway the presidential election Pennsylvania however it does show that there are fault lines in the democrat party first of all I'm not a fan of John Fetterman but the guy is a master class troll every republican could take a class in how to troll like John Fetterman is basically if reddit became a U .S. senator I don't know if you saw this video but it's just you know you have this guy that looks like cyclops walking you know in a hoodie with the Israeli flag walking did you see this video on the funniest thing I've ever seen and all these people are getting arrested honestly I respect that level of game and this his base he's trolling so Sean you know let's broaden this a little bit outside of just Fetterman doing the trolling is this which is um the fault lines the democrat party over Israel the Palestine issue I don't want to overplay this I think this is the most divided I've seen the democrats in recent memory am I right on saying that Sean I think you are and I think it explains why the institutional left why Joe Biden and the party leadership uh walk on eggshells on this issue which really shouldn't be a difficult issue um you know people shouldn't be rolling into Israel and murdering babies and raping people and filming it and bragging about it that's bad I feel like anyone who has a soul understands that's bad but unfortunately there's a significant segment of the left the far left um it hates Israel hates Jews and when they see party leadership uh like Joe Biden and anyone else uh say common sense things uh about Israel they lose their minds and that that explains everything about why the democrats are handling this as poorly as they are is it Joe Biden is terrified that he's going to lose the presidential election because he's going to lose Michigan because he's going to lose Dearborn Michigan that's that big thing explained everything it's everything that's going on it has nothing to do with principle they're just scared about what their loony left is going to do to them if they don't kowtow to Hamas yeah and it's just but also beyond that Sean there are radicalized white liberals that care about the Gaza issue as well it's not just the Muslim vote right this could impact on their college campus enthusiasm and you play that in with some Jill Stein Cornell West I mean there are serious fault lines in this forced democrat coalition oh absolutely the the hardcore uh white left uh is is every bit as anti -semitic as the uh the bread by the way in in left wing run universities who view the entire world through this oppressor oppressed colonialist victim uh perspective and so yeah your your most rabid anti -semites often on college campuses are these hardcore left -wing white radicals it's totally bizarre but if you watch the media you watch the media the only anti -semites on earth are on the right which is absurd if you have eyes and ears and a brain because it's clearly concentrated on the left final question Sean your just gut reaction Tucker Carlson vice president for Donald Trump I love it I love Tucker uh I think it'd be great it'd be great for America um he's one of the only people who who says all the things that we all think but aren't allowed to say he actually comes out and says it and uh I love him I think it'd be awesome I think we would win especially in a multi -candidate race we're gonna keep on building it out Sean thanks so much appreciate it thank you sir nobody Tucker is better in front of the camera than Tucker you're not gonna outwit him could you just imagine Tucker in a debate Tucker versus Cami Kamala Harris versus Tucker Tucker is ridiculously alert he's been harassed constantly and in an internet age as Joe Rogan famously said Tucker Carlson was built for the internet no personal scandals his laugh alone we know this at Turning Point USA you can you could fill up a room if you just announced Tucker so let's pretend Trump has to go to Fulton County and Jack Smith and he's tied up in all this court stuff wouldn't it make sense to have a vice president who could draw big crowds and draw media attention especially in a multi -candidate race everybody you want to win younger voters especially younger men Tucker Carlson you would win early 30 -somethings you would win the Rogan bros you would win the Andrew Tate people and honestly I think you'd win a lot of suburban women a lot of moms like Tucker they really do Tucker's smart he's well before I'll use it again the more he's attacked the stronger he gets they've tried to take Tucker out every possible way the government spied on him illegally Tucker doesn't care he's in a political moment that we're in doesn't that make sense I want to tell you about the Herzog Foundation we are partnering with them on some exciting stuff for years I've been talking about our nation's public schools and how they've been captured by progressive ideologues

.com that's HerzogFoundation .com Joining us now is the legend Benny Johnson Benny is best known by hosting a legend you are a legend no no no I don't just I just don't throw praise unless it's earned okay I got to tell the whole story here and we'll get through it and Benny of course hosts the Benny show he's amazing we've done some really fun stuff at Turning Point USA and continue to and so but he's best he will be best when known the history books are written for being a debate coach so here I am about to take the stage at Freedom Night our Turning Point USA event and my phone is lighting up Vivek goes after the RNC Vivek goes I say what is going on because here I kind of put in the back of my mind I was like whatever you know you and Vivek were like doing somersaults off of jet skis or something you're like we're debate prepping running through the woods or I was like all right okay whatever and then as soon as I saw Vivek go after NBC News I said Benny it's Benny tell us the story Benny okay so what do I do professionally well like this has been something that I've had a tough time a question I've had a tough time answering my entire life I do pattern recognition and energy energy right like where is the base what is our energy what are the what are the patterns of the things that we hate the very most well we we hate an RNC that doesn't listen to us we hate a Republican party that won't build the wall that won't deliver for the base that delivers election wins for the RNC it is not the RNC that wins elections it is us who gets out and votes but we also hate the corporate press and so why don't we bundle both those two things into criticism of an RNC that is siding with NBC News to host a debate and ask the questions why are these debate hosts allowed to one rig another debate against Republicans why is the RNC celebrating NBC News as a debate partner when they went with Hunter Biden's laptop disinformation Russia disinformation against President Trump kneecap President Trump's why would we allow that like how like how cucked are we and how embarrassing is it for all of us that that we have to say this is our Republican party and why doesn't Rana just resign do us all a favor and simply resign and so I all I did all I did was bring those concerns to the person who I was making a documentary with that day the vague and um you know compliments to the vague he sort of so let's absorb them and and let's show the clip here so what with it because because it really was the shot heard around the world it was one of the most viral debate moments in the history of debates because Vivek said what we were all thinking Rana has a 99 disapproval rating every base every every base member all the donors I talked to they want her gone it is it transcends economic lines state lines nobody likes her unless they're on the payroll right and yet Vivek is the only one that and then NBC News on top of it this is behind the cut one fifty four because these snooty the snooty like uh persnippity moderators to be compared to Greg Gutfeld and then it'll throw off it'll throw them off their game so bad because you'll be like you you you people are clowns to us right like our base doesn't like you and it's nothing personal it's just you've earned it right you've lied to them that's right yeah yes so why are we yep be such a broken system now I want to brag on the vague because we're going to play some more here how many times Benny how many times have you and I texted or you know said good ideas to congressmen and senators they said yeah yeah they don't listen to us credit to Vivek for also being open -minded right that's a big deal that's exactly right and also Vivek who's certainly not short of podcast bookings said why isn't Elon Musk and Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson hosting debate why isn't Charlie Kirk hosting a debate Charlie why aren't you have you been asked by the RNC to host a debate no I have been attacked by the RNC in the last couple weeks definitely not asked to host the debate but I I'm I'm thankful to even be included in that list that's that's very sweet but no what but what would like why not I mean that's in the little that's in the documentary that we put up we put up a 30 -minute documentary about that debate preparation which really was just us having a conversation right like energy absorption like like where's the base right now what do they want to hear because as much as we want to talk about the number of naval ships and Hugh Hewitt know how many ships do we got like people are really concerned about other issues and specifically inside of the party like you shouldn't get rewarded for lying to us and that's what the Republican party just said they rewarded Kristen Welker and NBC News who lied to us for three years and kneecapped President Trump who we put in office in spite of them trying to rig the 2016 election we put President Trump in office and they destroyed arguably his first term based on a lie and they have never apologized they have never said they were wrong they they then get rewarded by our own RNC and it allows me to ask the question again and again how cucked are we if we can't say you get no debates until you apologize to our base for lying to us about the Russian collusion hoax then we really don't have a party and so it was refreshing to see somebody actually say that from the stage and then to call for Rana to resign which by the way you want to talk about moving the Overton window because I you know you know me Benny I I pick fights all the time and I've been kind of like beating the drum you know why is Rana Mcromany still in there you know in our little corner here and you know we're having fun and next thing you know boom Vivek goes on stage it's like yeah why are you in charge exactly and who are you and it was I mean now it's mainstream completely mainstream here's cut 166 Benny did a documentary with Vivek before the debate here is the conversation behind the scenes of Vivek deciding he will call for Rana to resign play cut 166.
A highlight from What Separates "Gaza" from Hamas? with Alan Dershowitz and Harmeet Dhillon
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Hey everybody, today on The Charlie Kirk Show, Harmeet Dillon joins the program as we talk about the election results and what can be done to fix and change the RNC. Alan Dershowitz also joins us to talk about the War Against the Jews, very important book. Email me as always, freedom at charliekirk .com.

Start a high school or college chapter today at tpusa .com. Buckle up everybody, here we go. Charlie what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House folks. I want to thank Charlie, he's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country, he's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Do we want to win? That's such an obvious question. The great rush Limbaugh taught us that establishment Republicans deep down don't want to win. They want to be controlled opposition, have the media to cover fire for them, be invited to cocktail parties, go on codels, do debates with NBC News. Winning requires responsibility and deep down Republicans would rather be attachés, they would rather be puppets and controlled by the Democrats. This is why Donald Trump was such a threat to them. When Donald Trump actually won it was shock and awe throughout of Washington D .C. Wait, we actually won something? Donald Trump's insistence on winning is not something the Republican establishment wants. They would rather lose all throughout. The RNC leadership does not want to win. They have a track record of losing. Do I get any sort of, did you guys see Ronna or any of those cabal members get upset today? No, they're too busy doing a debate with NBC News because they hate you. Joining us now is Harmeet Dillon. Harmeet, welcome to the program. Harmeet, you sent out a tweet of you just with your hands up. What do you think? Yeah, I mean, I'm, look, I'm trying to be diplomatic here, I'm a member of the RNC, but in reality what I and all the other 156, 168 members of the RNC expect is that we are going to be going strong and doing the blocking and tackling for our candidates and creating the best situation for our candidates to win. And what happened yesterday was not that. Now, the RNC is not the only body whose job it is to elect a publicist. In fact, our main focus is supposed to be electing a president. I'll get to that in a minute. But we ought to be providing guidance and sort of a playbook for state parties to be able to get it right. For a while, to be frank, state parties have also not necessarily done their jobs in raising the money necessarily, but you know, you look at Kentucky, the Republican Governors Association's job is to raise the money and spend it so that our candidate does not outspend three or four to one. We need help with messaging. We need to update our playbook to make sure that we're gathering the ballots and getting those local density ballots in early, like the Democrats are doing, and that's not a volunteer activity anymore. Democrats are spending billions of dollars doing that over the last few election cycles, and we're just not even doing a drop in the bucket compared to that. So, you know, RNC's competence is necessary but not sufficient to win these elections. And I hope yesterday was a wake up call to all Republicans that we have less than one year to really get our act together and immediately engage and get this right. Otherwise, we are going to be looking at years of war and misery like we're suffering right now. So, Harmeet, just there's a debate tonight. It's kind of perplexing to do a debate with NBC News. Are other members of the RNC equally as confused? People are pretty puzzled by some of these choices to be frank, but most of us have no input in it. I used to be on the executive committee of the RNC. I'm not right now. We have a debate committee. I have a couple of friends on the debate committee and, you know, frankly even some of them are surprised by some of these choices, not just the venues that we're doing them for the platforms but also the specific moderators have been selected. It seems almost pointless or like fiddling while Rome is burning to be engaging with the far left here and letting them dictate the terms of our candidate selection. I'm not paying attention to that, to be honest with you. I'm really worried about what's happening in our country, what happened yesterday and figuring out how we can work around our national effort and make sure this gets done in the states or we're doing them. So, I'm going to ask a hypothetical that isn't so hypothetical. Hypothetical for you, not hypothetical for me. Is there a way to recall or remove an RNC chair this far into the game? You know, in the past, hypothetically, where there have been chairs who have failed completely, the executive committee of the Republican National Committee can certainly step in and, let's say, tighten the purse strings, set some boundaries, and make it very difficult. But, you know, Ronna got a mandate in January. She won pretty decisively. People ask me, are you going to confess that? No, I'm not going to confess. She definitely won the election with a significant percentage of the votes and there were major political operatives in our country on the Republican side whipping votes for her and there are many, many political consultants who really run the party who are very invested in the way it is. So, I don't really see that happening. So, you know, while it's convenient to pick a scapegoat we RNC for what happened yesterday, we got to get it together and not just complain on Twitter. We actually have to just understand this is the situation that we have and work around it. There are state parties. It is the job of state parties to get money and get it together and get a game play. Election laws vary by state. Some states have voter ID. Some states have 45 days of early voting. Whatever the situation is in your state, if you can't change it by election day, figure it out and learn how to master it. We've done that in California, for example. You know, we hate the system, but we've learned to figure out where we can win elections, ballot harvest, ballot cure, and get it done. And we do win those targeted elections. Yeah, Harmeet, I have a serious concern that we don't have the infrastructure necessary to win coming into next November. We are running out of time. You sent a tweet, you sent a tweet out some of this and you said this, which is the infrastructure is just not there. You know, we're not seeing the sort of consolidation of resources. And Harmeet, I know you have to be diplomatic because you're colleagues, all these people. But I'm going to say something I'm sure you're hearing. This is not just a grassroots concern. High level donors, the richest people, are actually saying very similar things as the grassroots as far as why do why are we not placing these investments? This is an unprecedented chapter where the rank and file precinct committeeman, the plumber, the electrician, the welder, the teacher, the mom is saying the same thing as the person worth a couple hundred million dollars. Are you hearing that too, Harmeet? I am hearing it. I spoke to some donor representatives just earlier this week of billionaire donors, reliable conservative donors. Quite a few of those folks supported change with the RNC. They didn't see it. And they're sitting on their hands right now. And that's unfortunate because these investments can't happen in October next year. They can't happen and they can't there can't be like, OK, let's call up some volunteer lawyers in September and hopefully they'll put down their laptops and go into the field and stuff. That's not how the Democrats do it. And since 2004, Democrat billionaires and big donors have been systematically and in a disciplined way, investing in legal warfare, investing in ballot harvesting, investing in smart tactical development of ballot measures and other bait, if you will, to get their voters to the polls, the high propensity voters. They have the money to pay the mules, gather these ballots and get them in. We are 20 years behind now. And, you know, I feel like watching a debate tonight is like fiddling while home is burning. It is not relevant to winning the election next year. Now, it has to be done. We can't skip this process. But, you know, I wonder why we're doing it with unfriendly moderators and platforms. It seems like a lost opportunity. Bottom line, if we have been investing in lawfare and in the army of ballot gatherers that we need, like, by the way, Turn Point Action is doing. Tyler's been out there doing that work. It's inspiring and it's important. There need to be a hundred Tyler's and a hundred Turn Point Actions out there doing this work in different states. There's, you know, some party patriots and other groups are doing it, but we just aren't doing enough of it. We have to have more. And yesterday needs to be a five alarm fire wake up call. Do not expect largesse from D .C. to save our butts. OK. Organize at the state and local level and find the local lawyers. And I can help with that. Find the people necessary and prepare the ground. Because if we don't, I mean, literally as we speak, my partners are flying around the country defending the right of President Trump to be on the ballot. This is extraordinary that the banana republics, that the regime tries to prevent the most popular opposition candidate from being free or from being on the ballot. That's what's happening in America right now. So, you know, that's that's what's at stake. And if you get, you know, let's not just use Twitter as a sport and get on there. Oh, you know, it's X person's fault. It's Y person's fault. That doesn't move the needle. What moves the needle is putting on your big girl in boy pants, getting out there, helping raise the money and helping be the person who organizes the precincts, finds out which neighbors aren't voting and why and persuade them. And if they're not even going to do that, then find a way to persuade them to turn their ballot over and you get it in for them. That's what it's going to take. Harmeet Dillon, wish you were RNC chair. We'd be in a much better spot. Thank you so much. See you soon. My pleasure. Thanks for having me.
A highlight from Abortion Wins Again
"Hi everybody, Dennis Prager here, wonderful to be with you. Fascinating how you have this gigantic demonstration of Israel destroyers and America haters in the United States. It's not even widely reported. Imagine if it were MAGA supporters in front of the United Nations, excuse me, United States, White House. Amazing to correlate the UN and the White House. That's Freudian, if there ever was one. Well, of course, it's a non -event. It's domestic terrorists, MAGA. Make America great again, Americans, they're the enemy. Not these vile people calling for the annihilation of a state called Israel, a state the size of New Jersey. The hatred of Israel is overwhelmingly because the Jews made something out of that desert and the surrounding states made nothing. That's it. Syria, oh, Iraq, Lebanon. Lebanon was going to be something, but then the Islamists took over. When it was half Christian, it was sort of Shangri -La in the Arab world. That's where Arabs went to vacation, to have a good time in a freer society. But the Islamists took care of that and Hezbollah destroyed Lebanon. How many people know that? People don't know. If you want proof that the issue is that Israel is Jewish, here's the proof. There is zero interest in the, oh, not zero, one, one percent. From one to a hundred, there is about, or one interest in the sufferings, even the deaths of fellow Arabs or fellow Muslims. Nobody talks about the creation of Pakistan, how's that for an esoteric bit of history happened at the same time as Israel, 1947, 1948. There was no country in the history of the world called Pakistan. It was part of India. Israel existed twice before in that exact area where it exists now, but Pakistan never existed. It was ripped out of India to make, guess what, a Muslim state. Now, let's talk a few figures here, okay? The number of Palestinians, then known as Arabs, there was no term, the word Palestinian referred to Jews actually, ironically. Guess how many Arabs died when Israel was made and it was, they all died because the Arab countries invaded the brand new state of Israel. Guess how many, 10 ,000, okay? And the number of refugees, about 700 ,000, exactly the same number as Jewish refugees from Arab countries. You don't hear about that either. So again, 10 ,000 Palestinians, slash Arabs, or Arabs, slash Palestinians died when Israel was created and about 700 ,000 refugees. Now, when Pakistan was created, which nobody talks about, what were the numbers? Let's see here. Okay, I'm looking for the exact, I want to be precise. So the number of deaths was between one and two million, not 10 ,000, as a result of the creation of Pakistan. Do you know how Bangladesh was created? Bangladesh was eastern Pakistan. Pakistan was in two very far away places, western Pakistan and eastern Pakistan. Eastern Pakistan, their ethnicity is Bengali, which is the state, the Bengal state of India in that area. They share ethnicity with the Bengals of India, they don't share religion. The Bengals of India are largely Hindu, the Bengals of Bangladesh are Muslim. The amount of murder, I don't have that piece of data in front of me, I will supply that. But people, they don't even know, people don't even know about Pakistan and Bangladesh. Because the issue has nothing to do, the concern is not with Palestinians. Egypt doesn't want to take one Palestinian, why doesn't Egypt take over Gaza? It did, it's one point, it doesn't want it. Jordan didn't want the Palestinians either, so they simply said, go, go, bye bye. Massive attack on Palestinians because of the rupture. The Palestinians have a record of utter destruction, a mass amount of destruction in Lebanon, massive amount in Jordan, a massive amount in Egypt. I don't know why, it's an interesting question, but that is the case. The whole thing is about destroying Israel, and part of the reason is theological, contrary to the lies told, it was never a paradise for Jews under Islamic rule. At times it was certainly better than under Christian rule, at times that's correct. But it was a time of massive, and the word was used by the Muslims, the humiliation of the dhimmi, dhimmi were Christians and Jews, the non -dhimmi, non -Muslims were largely killed. The ignorance, the left has created ignorant robots in the education system. Ami Horowitz was on my show yesterday, he went to Columbia University where there was And I asked him, what did it look like breakdown in terms of white and Middle Easterners? He said 50 -50, which is probably true for the White House as well. When President Trump said, let's have a moratorium, he never said a full ban, but a moratorium on from immigration Muslim countries. Of course he was called Islamophobic, a hater, a bigot. It was round the clock attacks on the President. But his argument had nothing to do with ethnicity, it had to do with values. We don't want to bring people into the society that don't share our values. Is the society not allowed to do that? England has not been transformed in this way. Sweden, Sweden essentially had no violent crime, had no rapes. It does now, because the liberal, the leftist was thrilled about this. The liberal was just the usual naive. Naive and liberal are synonymous. The left wishes to destroy and the liberal is naive about the left. That is the calamity in the United States. If liberals didn't look, look at Virginia yesterday, it's amazing to me, amazing. Both houses of the state houses went, are Democrat. Because they do so much good for the country, the Democrats. The cities of the country are thriving under Democratic Party rule. The country is thriving under Democratic Party rule. These are all well educated. No, that's a poor term. These are all well indoctrinated people. Just remember Pakistan, okay? Why is Pakistan legitimate and Israel is not? That's a question that most people arguing pro -Palestinian positions would not even know what you are referring to. So teach them. Actually have an article on it from what year? 2015.

Sean Hannity Sits Down With Ron DeSantis AGAIN
"Intrigued by Hannity's continual interviewing of Ron DeSantis on Fox News Trump's got to hate that you know I don't I haven't talked to Sean in a long time Sean and and President Trump are said to be very good friends wonder how that works you know Trump doesn't like that I'd be intrigued to know anyway once again DeSantis was on with Hannity last night and Sean asked some tough questions about Trump's soaring poll numbers as Trump is being threatened with losing his entire business operation in New York as this vicious Letitia James is suing him in a civil courtroom Sean was asking Governor DeSantis what do you make of Trump's rising poll numbers now unlike Chris Christie who has gone full you know Andre the giant there's something fascinating about this answer that Governor DeSantis gave Sean last night check this out well look I think when that when that Alvin Bragg case came down I mean it was just so transparently ridiculous it would go back seven or eight years clearly this would not have been brought for non -political reasons and so I think that he got a lot of sympathy you know as a result of that in particular maybe some of the others too but I think that one really just showed just how ridiculous quite frankly the justice system has become when it's in the hands of leftist politicians and leftist activists but you know what we're seeing here in Iowa is you know clearly former presidents got got a base of support you also have a base of people who are definitely looking elsewhere but then the bulk of the people considering are the former president but also considering others some of them are polling for him now some of them are not but there is I think more much more fluidity than what some of the national media wants to do and I think the people on the ground here see that there's a lot of people that just have not made a final decision I think the majority of Iowans will probably make a final decision as we get into early January and I'd say the same thing goes for the people of New Hampshire now you know the criticism of Ron DeSantis the rub against Ron DeSantis is that he's not warm he's not likeable he doesn't have much charisma he's kind of bland I'll tell you what he is at least politically he's brilliant
Former ICE Director Tom Homan Exposes National Security Failures
"Homan, former ICE director and president and CEO of border911 .com. Tom, thank you so much for taking the time. I want to play a piece of tape here that has been making the rounds and then we'll riff on it. Play cut 54. I've done this job for over three decades. I've never seen numbers anywhere near this. This is drastic. This is the biggest national security failure that I've seen in this country since 9 -11. This is historic. I promised President Trump when he announced it, he goes back, I go back, and I'm going to run the biggest deportation operation this country has ever seen. Because these massive people being released in this country, 9 out of 10 will get order removal based on immigration court data. A judge order is removed. We're going to find them and we're going to remove them. There's no consequence. We can't fix the border. We're going to have a consequence in the Trump administration. Tom, tell us about it. A second Trump term, the largest deportation force ever seen. Tell us more. I've met with President Trump many times. I was one of the first guys that he met with when he re -announced his coming back and I told him I'd come back in a minute. I told him I'd come back for free because I'm so pissed off what this administration did. We gave this administration, Charlie, the most secure border in my lifetime and they unsecured it. The first president in history's nation that unsecured the border. So I promised President Trump I'd come back and people need to understand, these millions of people that are released in the United States, if you look at the immigration court data over the last decades, people claim asylum at a border. Nearly 9 out of 10 never get relief from U .S. courts because they simply don't qualify and they're going to be ordered removed. And we're going to remove them under the Trump administration because if you're demanding due process, which we give them, due process doesn't mean squat. It's a final decision of the courts aren't carried out. So we're going to find the 9 out of 10, they get order removed, we're going to locate them and we're going to deport them because there has to be a consequence to breaking the laws of this country. What do you have to say to some people that would, you know, say it's not logistically feasible to deport millions of people? You know, it is very difficult and do I think I removed 20 million people? No, but we do it one at a time. No one's off the table. Listen, if the immigration court, if the judge orders somebody removed and we don't remove them because it's too hard, then let's shut down the immigration courts too because the final orders obviously don't mean anything. No, we need to carry it out. And look, if we work with Congress and pass a legislation that if you get an order of removal from the courts, you don't qualify ever for amnesty, for DACA, for any benefits, that will certainly help to self deport many people. You've got to cut it off. You've got to stop rewarding people of illegal behavior. Whoever they're going to do to become fugitives, they get order removal. They don't leave. They'll hide out. They'll hide out long enough for the next giveaway, the next amnesty, the next DACA. We can't allow that. That has to stop.

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries criticized a Republican -led bill that passed this week and provides $14 billion in aid to Israel while cutting funding for the IRS. He slammed Republicans for unnecessarily conditioning aid to Israel and leaving out funding for humanitarian assistance for Palestinian civilians. The bill passed the House with the help of a dozen Democrats, despite veto threats issued by President Biden.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Netanyahu in Tel Aviv on Friday and called for a pause in the fighting to allow the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza.

During 2020 Campaign, Joe Biden Lied About Receiving Foreign Money
"OK. Jim, queue up for me. Cut to and nobody in the media can seem to explain this away. Here was Biden running for office against President Trump in a debate. We now know he took money that originated from the Chinese Communist Party. We know it. The money trail. No one in the media seems even remotely curious about this little soundbite from the 2020 election and asking him questions about it. Check this out. I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life. We learned that this president paid 50 times the tax in China, has a secret bank account with China, does business in China, and in fact is talking about me taking money. I have not taken a single penny from any country whatsoever, ever. All I mean, it reminds me of, like, the dude from The Big Lebowski. Yeah, well, like, I mean, Donald Trump is in 7000 different courtrooms for paying for a guy's parking and for Mar -a -Lago allegedly being worth 27 dollars million when it's worth, uh, I mean, it's just the dumbest thing. I've never heard things so soon. There's no allegation of fraud, there's not a single bank alleging fraud, there's not a loan repayment missed, and Donald Trump is in criminal and civil court for this. Joe Biden took $40 ,000. Nobody knows if he paid taxes on whatever. it or The money originated from the Chinese Communist Party. It's 10 % for the big guy, him. business The partners acknowledge he's the big guy.

"Lots of channels. Nothing to watch. Especially if you're searching for the truth. It's time to interrupt your regularly scheduled programs with something actually worth watching. Salem News Channel. Straightforward, unfiltered, with in -depth insight and analysis from the greatest collection of conservative minds. Like Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Sebastian Gorka, and more. Find truth. Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. The Mike Gallagher Show. For what purpose does a gentleman from Louisiana seek recognition? Mr. Speaker. That is a nice ring to it, by the way. Mr. Speaker, I offer a privileged resolution to notify the Senate of the election of Mike Johnson as Speaker of the House of Representatives and ask for its immediate consideration. In the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike. I saw a TV commercial last night. Remember that kid on that funny TV show, was it Malcolm in the Middle? Wasn't his name Frankie something? Isn't Frankie Muniz or Muniz? And he's doing a commercial for Hair Club for Men. He's like a race car driver now. I guess he races cars. And I just saw about 15 seconds of it. And evidently, he's a Hair Club for Men. You know, of all the things I'm trying to get my life together in my 60s, I've lost a bunch of weight. I'm trying to work out every day. I'm on the bike. I'm doing my thing. I'm not an attractive person. I don't claim to be. If you watch me on Sale & News Channel, you can confirm. I'm not really a very handsome guy. I don't think I would ever be mistaken for a model. But I would love to lose the bald spot. I hate the bald spot. Years ago, I was going up the stairs and Bonnie Simmons was a secretary, was an assistant in our Salem, Dallas offices. And she was up on the balcony. She looked down at me and she said, look at that. She was British. Look at that bald spot. You look like Friar Tuck. And then I insulted her very badly because I was hurt. I would love to get rid of the bald spot. I don't think you can get rid of a bald spot. You can work on thinning hair. I don't think the bald spot, I don't think there's much they can do back there. But I wonder if, I mean, plugs and all that, that would be rough. Is that what Hair Club is? Or hair growth? Tracy, see if you can find out what Frankie is doing. And I appreciate the text message I just got from Minnesota. I listen to you on the radio and you sound like a handsome devil. That's true. On radio, I'm very handsome. On TV, I'm just a schlubby looking guy. You know who I look like? I don't know why I'm in such a good mood. You know who I look like in person and this is not something to brag about? The late, great Mel Torme. Now, he was amazing. He was a great talent, right? Wrote, you know, chestnuts, roasting, but he looked kind of like a frog. And that's who I look like. If you don't believe me, Google Mel Torme and then look at a picture of me and embarrassingly, that's who I most look like. That's the celebrity I look the most like, Mel Torme. But anyway, if I could get rid of this bald spot somehow, maybe I could – I'm not going to wear a toupee, never going to dye my hair, a lot of gray, getting old and not for sissies. Hey, being in the good mood I'm in, I'm going to go out on a limb and I'm going to say something that's probably going to get me in trouble, particularly with Ron DeSantis supporters. But I'm going to say it anyway. I think Nikki Haley is going to surpass Ron DeSantis. I think Governor Nikki Haley is the one to watch. She is surging. She's now ahead of DeSantis in New Hampshire. She's now tied for second with DeSantis in Iowa. I think Nikki Haley is carving out a lane that might just give her the path to second place. Now, I don't know that anybody is going to overtake President Trump. But then again, you never know what's going to happen with anything. You never know what's going to happen with anybody or anything. And Nikki Haley, The Daily Beast, Matt Lewis over The Daily Beast had an analysis. Here's why Nikki Haley is gaining in the polls and Ron DeSantis is not. She's now tied with DeSantis for second in Iowa according to a new Des Moines Register NBC News MediaCom Iowa poll. More importantly, the trend lines show DeSantis down three points and Haley up 10 points since August. What's more, Haley has already surpassed DeSantis in New Hampshire. She's now in second place in the first in the nation primary. She is emerging as the alternative to Donald Trump, at least in part because she's more likable than DeSantis. Now, that's according to The Daily Beast. I don't know, is she more likable than – frankly, the emerging narrative is that anybody is more likable than Ron DeSantis. I don't think of Ron DeSantis as likable or unlikable. He's kind of a policy guy. He's smart. He's effective. He's accomplished. He's really – he's good. There's nothing wrong with Ron DeSantis except he's not Donald Trump. But a lot of people are convinced that Ron DeSantis is still the alternative. I don't know. I don't know the answer to this. I don't know. But The Daily Beast's Matt Lewis writes that Nikki Haley has not made the mistake that Ron DeSantis made. He asserts that Ron DeSantis chose a lane that was already taken. Instead of assembling a coalition of Reagan conservatives who never liked Trump and former Trumpers who are ready to move on, Ron DeSantis chose to ignore or offend the former and focus on attracting current Trumpers who have no interest in quitting the Donald. She chose a lane that went after Trump pretty rigidly. She criticized Trump for adding $8 trillion to our debt. She called him the most disliked politician in America. And Matt Lewis' analysis is her strategy worked. As recently as this spring, Ron DeSantis looked like the best positioned Republican to take on Trump. Haley seemed as unlikely to catch fire as Mike Pence who, as we know, dropped out of the race this past weekend. Today, he writes, Haley is the one to watch while Ron DeSantis' star seems to be fading. Do you agree with that? Now, the team gave me a clip that went viral. Ron DeSantis went on a very popular podcast with a guy named Patrick Bet -David, this PBD podcast. And it's getting a lot of traction. It's a very popular podcast. I hear a lot of people say that they're engaging in this podcast that this guy does. And it's one of those teams, I don't know, it's called the PBD podcast. And the guy's name is Patrick Bet -David. And people took this clip and ran with it and said, this Patrick Bet -David has single -handedly ended Ron DeSantis' candidacy. Now, that's hyperbolic and that's exaggeration to be sure. But it is fair to, and I was wondering about this. I really debated this. Driving into work this morning, I thought, should I play this clip or not? I don't want to embarrass Ron DeSantis. I don't want to attack him. I'm not anti -DeSantis. I'm not anti -Republican. We desperately need to defeat the Democrats in 2024. I'm convinced the Democrat we're going to have to beat is Gavin Newsom. Incidentally, did you see Newsom over in China? What the heck's the California governor doing kissing up to Xi in China? Well, he wants to run for president. He thinks he's going to be the Democrat nominee. And I believe he very well could be. Now, I'm going to play this clip for you against my better judgment. Tracy's convincing me we should play it just so people can hear what people are talking about on social media. DeSantis is terribly embarrassed, I'm sure, by this. And he is very rigid in controlling his media interviews. Trust me, I've got some personal experience in that field. Here's Governor DeSantis on this very popular podcast that has already been viewed now millions and millions of times. DeSantis wears cowboy boots a lot. And his critics make fun of his penchant for cowboy boots. And they suggest that the reason he's wearing boots is that he's got lifts in them because he's short. So this guy, this Patrick Bet -David goes right at him on the issue of cowboy boots. Again, not a very comfortable place for Governor DeSantis to be. I thought I'd share it with you anyway. I know you were on, what do you call it? What was it? Bill Maher. And Bill Maher talked about the boots. I've seen you walk with these boots. Go ahead and play this clip. This on TikTok went viral. It doesn't have a million views. It doesn't have, you know, 10 million views. This thing's got 1 .2 million likes. And some people are wondering... They've not shown this to you. Okay, what they're trying to say with this is that in your boots, you have heels. No, no, no. Those are just standard off the rack, Lucchese. How tall are you Governor? 5 '11. Okay. Why don't you wear tennis shoes and dress shoes? I do wear tennis shoes when I work out. Okay, I got a gift for you. I'd love for you to wear, okay, I shop at Ferragamo. I don't accept gifts. I can't accept it. I'm sorry. I mean, it was just a really awkward, cringey moment. Governor DeSantis has a look on his face like, how did I get myself in this position? And it probably didn't do him any favors to go on the PBD podcast because that guy clearly just wanted to embarrass Ron DeSantis. And I just keep wondering about people like Trump. I don't know that Trump would ever put himself in that position. He'd go right back at the guy and attack him. That's not who DeSantis is. DeSantis is a very serious guy. And I suppose the narrative that has emerged is that Governor DeSantis isn't particularly likable. And if you believe this Daily Beast analysis by Matt Davis, Nikki Haley is. She is more likable. Now, a lot of text messages coming in already on the MyPillow text line and I want to open up our phone lines. The PHD weight loss phone number is 800 -655 -MIKE.

I mean, it's actually unbelievable, but a lot of people have heard it. But on the chance that you haven't, let's play cut 27 from the White House President Biden's spokesperson, Corrine Jean -Pierre. Concern right now about the potential rise of anti -Semitism in light of everything that's going on in Israel. So a couple of things. Look, we have not seen any credible threats. I know there's been always questions about credible threats. And so I just want to make sure that that's out there. But look, Muslim and those perceived to be Muslim have endured a disproportionate number of hate fueled attacks. And certainly President Biden understands that many of our Muslim Arab Arab Americans and Palestinian American loved ones and neighbors are worried about the hate being directed at their communities. And that is something you heard the president speak to in his. All right. The question was about the rise in anti -Semitism in the United States. And it's everywhere. I mean, anywhere you look, it's everywhere. Last night, a video was posted of a television person who went home to their apartment. There was a pro intifada demonstration in front of the apartment. It's not hard to find the evidence. I told you about Manhattan Beach Public Schools. I've told you about it. And yes, we know about the attack on the Palestinian boy that killed him and has severely wounded his mother, you know, two weeks ago and denounced it. But the question was about anti -Semitic attacks. And the answer was about Islamophobia. And I think that fairly reflects exactly where most of the Biden administration is. They're not with Israel. They're not with Israel. It's all the Obama people. Yesterday, Ben Rhodes popped up his head and Lucas Tomlinson, I think it was Lucas, found it. And he wrote this, Israel has legitimate security concerns and has the right to go after the military wing of Hamas, a faction that has proven to be the worst version of itself. What in the world does that mean? Does that mean there's a good Hamas? Ben Rhodes is not in the administration, but everyone he worked with is. And Obamaism completely infiltrates and controls the Biden administration. And the lead story, last night, there were 400 airstrikes in Gaza by the IDF. They're getting ready to go in. But the lead story in The New York Times and is US raises concern about Israel's plan of action in Gaza. The United States says, look, you know, maybe you want to do Mosul, or maybe you want, you don't want to do Fallujah in 2004. You know what? We did Fallujah in 2004. And we did Mosul in 2017. And we could afford it. And we didn't have to mobilize the entire country to do it. And it was standoff warfare. Israel can't have that luxury. They've got a army of fanatical killers, many of whom are high on captagon to their south. They got an army of jihadists to their north, and they got Iran paying for both. They do not have the luxury of the United States, directing prolonged ground assaults in Mosul or air assaults in Mosul and the bloody ground assault in Fallujah 2004. These armchair MIDI specialists in the Biden administration are pulling back. I'm going to talk with Mike Lauren about this at the bottom of the hour. Don't go anywhere. There's a lot of news. The House Republicans haven't got to speak yet. There's up today. Maybe they will. We don't know. And Morgan will update you on that tomorrow. But I'm mostly concerned that we're quite obviously pulling back Israel, the bear hug. And I don't know if any of you ever read the Chronicles of Narnia. I really don't. And it's their children book that aren't children's books. But they're fabulous. And I'm remembering vaguely the Prince Caspian, I think it's the fourth book in the series, where the children who have been drawn in through the wardrobe in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe go back. And thousands of years have passed in Narnia. And they cannot figure out what is going on. And they cannot see what is happening in front of them. And they don't want to believe what's going on in their beloved Narnia. And they just simply refuse to see. One of them sees Lucy, and then Edmund, and then finally Peter, but Susan never sees. I think I remember this correctly. Never admit seeing, although she always did. That's where we are right now. A lot of people in America don't want to admit where Israel is, surrounded by fanatics with massacre of 1400 and 228 or 248 of their people held hostage. So Hamas releases too, and Americans say, well, let's slow down. I don't think so. There's one world in which the Israelis live, and we'll talk with Michael Oren about that. And then there's another world where the Wendy Shermans and the Ben Rhodes and the other defeatists and round -heeled beltway foreign policy blob lives. And that's not where Israel can afford to live. President Trump last night, former President Trump last night in New Hampshire, what spelled out is the problem here by bringing up Iran. Now, he made a question about Iran and Biden. I want you to hear it. Cut number six. We have to bring our country back. It's not, it's not an easy thing to do. Would you believe what's happened to the USA in the last three years? But I will immediately reinstate all sanctions on the murderous Iranian regime. You have to do that. So we have a deal. That is the key. All right. We've got to crush Iran. Iran is really at war with Israel from the north and the south. And the biggest threat immediately for Israel is up for Israel to determine. I don't know what they're going to do. And I don't know how they're going to do it. And America should not be holding them back. The former president also talked about Iranian energy exports, which have funded all of this nightmare. Cut number 11. I will shut down Iranian energy and I'll unlock American energy like never before. And we will once again make the Iranian dictatorship very poor.
"president trump" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

here's a little bit of a tease a crumb a whisper of my incredible conversation with Tucker Carlson enjoy I was watching the other day I'm actually not a huge Martin Luther King fan or whatever super flawed guy but I was watching the last the audio was listening the audio of the last speech that he gave the night before he was killed April 3rd 1968 he was killed the next afternoon and he gave this speech and he had just been like cheating with a bunch of different women okay yeah he had a tendency oh my gosh no he was like a ridiculous sexually out of control but he gave this speech in which he clearly predicted his own death like there's no doubt if you listen to this that God is speaking through Martin Luther King and I and again I don't like Martin Luther King's program I don't like his behavior there's a lot of you know worshiping Martin Luther King is absurd to me but I gotta say if you listen to that speech God is speaking through Martin Luther King there's no other explanation for that and you're like well that's kind of consistent with what we know we're all flawed the people in charge tend to be more flawed but it doesn't mean that they're not capable of greatness so let's just be honest about it the second you have to feel the need to pretend that you're perfect you become a liar and you become paradoxically even less perfect in my opinion now if you want to

done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created turning what you were saying we will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries destroyed lives and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country that's why we are here brought to you by the loan experts i trust andrew and todd at sierra pacific mortgage at andrewandtodd.com the timeline is set well it's close to being set there will still be some delays motions witness testimony here's what we're going to see january 15th is going to be the iowa primary or the iowa caucus to be specific super tuesdays on march 5th there's also the new hampshire primary nevada south carolina i think nevada is actually coming ahead of south carolina now they kind of reorganized it and donald trump will be standing for one of his many indictments for trial on may any further it's remarkable how effective the democrats have been and the media has been in moving the overton window we have a fair amount of new viewers by the way our numbers are going up dramatically praise god so let's remind each other what is the overton window if you know it it's good refresher if not it's very important the overton window is a way of thinking or it's an approach to identifying the ideas that define the spectrum of acceptability of how the government acts for example it says politicians can only act within an acceptable range shifting the overton window involves proponents of policies outside the window persuading the public to expand the window a great example of this is defund the police so the spectrum goes from unthinkable all the way to public policy and it can go back and forth it can move but it's a reflection of the sentiment of the people now this was originally the author of the overton window was mostly focused on how laws go from ideas into action this is actually founded by an american policy analyst by the name of joseph overton if we can get a picture let's put it on there let's put the overton window picture i think it's very helpful it's it's a great way to say oh wow that was once unthinkable and now it's everywhere so the overton window goes through these steps something is unthinkable then it's deemed radical then it's deemed acceptable then it's deemed sensible then it's deemed popular then it's deemed policy let me give you three quick examples marijuana legalization it was unthinkable when i was a kid and now it's policy chemically castrating kids ironically it's still unthinkable in certain circles but it is policy we're cutting kids parts off at record rates keeping our borders wide open it was radical now it's policy gay marriage is probably the best example of this but look at how they were able to move through the overton window just in the last 12 months when they raided mar-a-lago that was an unthinkable act a former president being raided by the government that he once directed it was met with outrage over the top we live in a third world country how could this possibly happen but then the media did their job and they kept on making you feel as if it's normal it's perfectly fine donald trump is a felon and so like that the we started to move on the spectrum of what was considered to be thinking a year ago one calendar year ago everybody mar-a-lago is not yet rated donald trump was under zero indictments zero one year ago donald trump did not have any indictments and mar-a-lago is not rated and in the course of one year not only have they acted in a way but they acted and so whoever is designing this i have a lot of respect for they're evil they're clever as can be but i have infinite respect because not only are they doing this in a way to interfere in the 2024 election but the methodical marching of which they are progressing shows me a deep understanding of how the overton window works this is not amateur hour whoever is conducting the orchestra a theme that we repeat here valerie jarrett barack hussein the is not just throwing stuff up the wall and hope it hits no this is well planned this is concocted this is somebody who has been around for multiple decades and knows how to move the window so you think about it 12 months ago donald trump faced no indictments they raid mar-a-lago it was the shot heard across the world how dare you go raid a president's home then we kind of got over it oh i guess it's fine because i uh biden had documents too they lulled you to sleep but whoever is doing the conducting needed somebody to cross the rubicon first remember in january february march when there were whispers that donald trump might be facing criminal charges in new york our talking point was this had never happened again before this has never happened before a former president has never been indicted a former president never indicted a former president never been alvin bragg the weakest of all the cases kind of the silliest of all the cases stormy daniels campaign finance is that case is probably going to fall apart of all the ones that donald trump has a likelihood of getting tossed out by a judge it's the new york case but the intent of the new york case was not about putting donald it was to move the overton window where you weren't experiencing a sense an aura of shock and awe when donald trump gets booked by the federal government the inside-out collusion between federal state and local agencies is unprecedented the harmony of which alvin bragg and fanny willis and the head of the michigan attorney general dano nessel i believe the name and jack smith and merrick garland are working there is a central nervous system i don't know where it is is it in martha's vineyard is it in sun valley is it an aspen somebody is calling the shots here this is not we hate trump let's just see what it is no no no somebody is planning this and we are marching right into it reminds me of the allegory of the cave can we get that picture famous allegory the cave where actually we get the word in latin education from the allegory the cave socrates plato's allegory the cave where you're looking at a simulation you have to say wait a second there's light behind us and we've been looking at shadows can we just break free and realize we are playing in a simulation here where there is an output i'm going to show it to you because now the whole plan has been revealed that's the allegory of the cave where it shows that you are seeing nothing more than the projection of a light behind you of shadows on a screen that somebody else is manipulating and puppeteering for their purpose and you're falling right into it purpose of this show today on friday july 21st is to just say time out press pause 35 000 foot view what simulation are we living through right now because in 12 months 12 months ago we were getting angry and mad at the prospect of donald trump and his home getting raided and now we're kind of just shrugging our shoulders and we say well i guess he's going to be under four different venue indictments you got documents in florida you got fanny willis you got stormy daniels in new york you got january 6th get instructions auditions conspiracy alternate electors whoa this did not happen everybody out of nowhere ex nihilo it did not come out of nothing no this is worth some examination this is worth some real dialogue not only who is planning it that's not interesting to me we know that it's being planned but then what is the plan what is the timeline and then the most important thing how do you launch a sabotage campaign of that plan and boy the the designer the architect the author of what we are living through they they are not dumb this is a this is a this is a world-class product and how to thwart a popular former president from getting back into the white house do you know the average american spends about 20 years in retirement that's a long time to live without a steady income and we want to make sure you enjoy every moment of it and don't outlive your money retirement is about more than just investments it's about living your best life let's not retire let's pivot my friends at pax financial who i use for my wealth management future develop a course for the sole purpose of helping you pivot if you want your own free guide to pivoting into the new chapter of life with purpose visit pax fg.com slash charlie that is p a x f g.com slash charlie pax fg.com slash charlie okay in one year they have moved the overton window from how dare you raid his home to multiple indictments this is not by mistake so what is the plan well let's go through the breaking news today with all that lead up judge eileen cannon just gave the democrats everything they wanted by placing the trump document trial in the heart of campaign season so january 15th will be the iowa caucus march 5th is super tuesday may 20th the trial date starts may 21st is the oregon primary june 4th montano new mexico south dakota primaries and july 15th is the rnc october 14th early voting begins in georgia my birthday october 1st is the beginning of early voting in arizona and november 5th is election day barring any future delays it is conceivable that trump the top opposition candidate to the current regime could be tried convicted and in in prisons a little much guys that's not that's not totally true but can tried and convicted before election day and the timing of the republican convention is very significant by the way this doesn't count the january 6 charges and breaking today because they've moved the window because they've made it seem normal the democrats are very talented at normalizing the public life they're kind of like hey like sam smith dressing up like lucifer and doing a performance at the grammys well i guess that's normal the normalization of evil is something the media masters in fulton county prosecutors prepare racketeering charges in trump inquiry because of a single perfectly fine phone call perfectly fine phone call through the campaign primary season donald trump is going to be facing multiple impediments so there's two ways to interpret this the pro-desantis anti-trump let's just say take that we see on on twitter is that the regime wants to run against trump so they're indicting him to boost his bona fides in the primary to set the trap in the general election of course that is possible i don't believe that the more likely interpretation is that they believe donald trump will be the in the general election let's play cut 128 so we got some breaking news with regard to former president donald trump the judge in that case eileen cannon out of fort pierce florida has set a trial date for the 20th of may so that's a good six months prior to the election in november on november 5th 2024. so if you're a democrat who has the idea of let's nominate trump he's i think now remember in 2016 a lot of democrats wanted to run against trump this is a split this is not agreed upon in democrat circles it's not you have 50 that want to run against trump and 50 that are terrified of trump it goes both ways liz cheney understands the magic of trump she says it she says he could still win she's right there's other people that are more cocky and more confident that would love to run against trump we have to understand that the democrats are united in their extremism not in their tactics this is a deep divide in democrat elite circles a deep divide there is not harmony in this in this regard however it's worth repeating from the michigan electors case with dana nessel with the georgia case alvin bragg with a shot heard around the world in the crossing of the rubicon doj with jack smith and documents somebody is composing this and the way that they are composing it is as simple as this weigh trump down he'll win the prime no matter what bring down his favorables in the general run a brain-dead idiot with mass mail-in voting chasing ballots and hundreds of millions of dollars and billions of dollars of air support defeat him in wisconsin arizona and georgia and then the american right will be so angry that some people will act in violence and that we're going to be able to have a january 6 2.0 and put them all in prison and reign for the next hundred years hey everybody charlie kirk here we are saving babies with preborn by providing free ultrasounds when you introduce a girl to her baby by providing an ultrasound you're giving her the truth at the most important time in her life and more than 85 percent of the time when she sees the baby and hears the baby's heartbeat she will choose life the voices that call themselves pro-choice are loud and proud and they are everywhere it might feel like an uphill battle but there is no better fight to fight than with the truth of an ultrasound 140 gives five mothers a free ultrasound and saves babies 280 can save 10 babies for just 28 a month you can save a baby a month for less than a dollar a day and fifteen thousand dollar gift will provide an ultrasound machine that will save lives for years to come whether you want to save one baby or five or hundreds that opportunity is just a phone call or click away i'm a donor to preborn and you should be too call 833-850-BABY that is 833-850-2229 or go to preborn.org kirk if you want to save one baby or five or hundreds the opportunity is just right there go to preborn.org kirk several things i want to touch on here we have this new breaking news on the hunter biden 1023 blake did a great job summarizing this i'll be honest i'm a little desensitized to this i am going to go through this but it just seems to be more of the same hunter biden is a criminal is a traitor joe biden is a criminal and a traitor but i want to emphasize something that i was not able to build out a couple days ago and it ties all this in so fannie willis is going after donald trump alvin bragg all this where are the republican attorneys general where are the republicans who are in law enforcement offices the michigan attorneys general is going after 16 maga moms and dads how many republican ags and i'm by the way i'm told how wonderful they are oh yeah they're so great they're so great really how many democrats have our republican attorneys general i was texting with some of them and they said you know i won't tell you who but it's from a very red state in the south and he said oh charlie we're working on things enough you haven't indicted blm you haven't indicted the soros crime syndicate you haven't indicted any of these people and yet we just sit idly by and the left nakedly uses the criminal justice system to imprison dissidents i mean prison entire parts of the country and we just kind of say there is no opposition party in this country it does not exist there's an opposition constituency but not an opposition party two separate things and that should be that should be infuriating for you be one thing if you weren't engaged and involved the one thing if we didn't get 7 000 people to our turning point action conference how many democrats are in handcuffs today well donald trump is gonna be booked again booked in georgia booked in new york booked in florida booked in dc hillary clinton is walking free peter struck strokes murk walks free anthony fauci walks free loretta lynch walks free lois learner walks free eric holder walks free how going after the drop boxes that were unconstitutionally illegally set up walks free how about the interstate movement of people to burn and loot our cities widespread crime and vagrancy the charitable fraud that blm engaged in why is a republican not indicted them for that blm was the chosen secular religion in the year of 2020 you worshipped at the altar of the golden calf of blm remember all those companies that said they were going to give money to blm well now we know blm they're paying money themselves paying money they're sugar daddy paying money for security for this buying a content creator a black content creator mansion here they got mansions in canada blm might as well be renamed as by large mansions but republicans won't be bothered to actually go after them criminally they just kind of like i don't want to be called a racist i'd rather be governor that's what i get out of most attorneys general i'm done with it i'm sick of it you should not support these people running for office i don't care what state they're in oh well you know why did this lawsuit here enough we need perp walks we need handcuffs we need people in jail and you know some people say oh charlie that's really extreme no no what's extreme is indicting donald trump in four separate jurisdictions you know what's extreme extreme is indicting 16 senior citizens because they signed a piece of paper that they were constitutionally allowed to sign in the state of michigan to put them on a soviet-style arthur kessler darkness at noon show trial to break their will and destroy their life that's extreme putting steve bannon in federal prison is extreme raiding james o'keefe's because they know they're untouchable they do this because they are not afraid that the law will ever come back at them and they're right we're so weak our republicans are a joke and i know a lot of these republicans attorney general i've been texting them they're not happy with me because we're calling them out and they're you know what they say is oh you know i i don't have prosecutorial authority prosecutorial authority i get this excuse all the time well then how does the michigan attorney general do this why can't you refer it to a local da by the way this is one of the reasons why i think they had to go after ken paxson in texas because i think ken paxson was getting closer and closer to actually using the justice system to even the playing field have to go after him i think that paxson was the equivalent of the attorney's general show trial shot across the bow canary in the coal mine remember this is all composed there is a beethoven behind this so you have to go after the most vocal toughest ag we have paxson who was getting ready to do this stuff boom put him in a box and then they go and use behavior in michigan there's somebody that has that has composed this down to the final letter all the while we have this new information 1023 form of just outright criminality and our team is right in the chat they say charlie we cannot grow either cynical or grow desensitized i agree i'm just being very honest i'm always honest with the audience i mean i don't know how many more things with hunter biden i have to go through before i personally and it takes a lot for me to get here just get ridiculously demoralized i don't celebrate it by the way i mean look again blake did a fabulous job putting this together there's these there's these sources together that now say quote don't worry hunter will take care of all those issues through his dad in the confidential human source memo these guys are funneling money from barisma millions of dollars of wire transfer we've already known this and now we have more and more evidence the document describes a phone call between the source and zolochensky and listen closely because this part is amazing quote zolochensky replied that he was not happy trump won the election asked lichensky whether he was concerned about barista's involvement with the zolochensky stated he didn't want to pay the bidens but he was pushed to pay them and say to quote i hope you have some backup for your words zolochensky replied that he has many text messages and recordings and showed that he was coerced to make such payments chs told zolochensky he should make certain that he should retain those recordings you hear that the one big shortcoming of this document is that it's from 2020 and it's just one person's allegations but according to this person's own testimony we have reasonably that the proof of what happened is out there first of all we should be looking for the proof right now but our law enforcement's not doing that they could have been looking for all this in 2020 but they didn't and thanks to the irs whistleblowers we know why because there was a years-long systematic effort to cover up all the evidence of the biden family corruption by the way chs is confidential human source truth is not a left-wing value dennis prager taught me that and this is one of the most remarkable clips why is america divided why is america becoming a third world country we're not there yet but we are becoming a third world country it's because of the scum of the earth this guy i think he's the this guy's never worked a honest day in his life i think he is one of the heirs of levi straus fortune i think dan goldman this guy's a scum rat and he says this with a with an honest face yeah it's fine to to say something like this you have to so aggressively suppress your soul to say something like this this is the party line i you know i chatted the other day with someone who's a beautiful person he's really great and he's older and he says charlie i'm so worried that we're going to become the soviet union i said we we are more soviet than we are free that's tough it's tough to say that i don't celebrate it i don't like it you have to be honest if you have a tumor you don't go around and say i'm perfectly healthy yeah i don't think we have the the clip but levi straus heir would join congress's richest with nyc win yeah i was right dan goldman one of several democrats vying in the new district disclosure forms show personal wealth over 253 million dollars he won once we have the clip i'll play it for you i'm building it up where he says quote there is no actual basis to say that there's somehow political interference or weaponization at doj there's a two-tiered system of justice against hunter biden that's dan goldman there is a two-tiered system of justice against hunter biden yeah play cut 68 so there is actually no basis to say that this is somehow a politically somehow political interference or a weaponization as they say of the department of justice in fact based on my experience i'm shocked that hunter biden was even charged with these crimes so the fact that he's even taking a plea deal in my mind demonstrates a two-tiered system of justice against hunter biden two-tiered system of justice against hunter biden you have to ignore your soul to say something that brazenly insane i don't know what other sort of sick activities dan goldman is involved in but there is i guarantee you this guy is not living an ethical life when you say something like that impossible you have to be at a such a dark place in ethical behavior to publicly go on television and say that i never want to hear again well very impressive that somebody went to stanford this guy went to stanford and yale yeah he's full of knowledge he has no wisdom and he's a bad person worth 250 million dollars never worked in honest day in his life bought on third thought he born on third thought he hit a triple jb pritzker type why are we divided why are we not the country we grew up in dan goldman in that one clip is a perfect example he hates you he hates the truth he loves power a two-tiered system of justice against hunter biden welcome to charlie kirk exclusive the place where we post content that is just for you our members our team members you guys are a team member we're gonna have full

universities eugene robinson writes for the washington post twice weekly listen to this he says that the purpose of these investigations is to bring biden down to trump's level msnbc's the biden's

"president trump" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"Joined now by United States Senator John Cornyn former member of the Texas Supreme Court. Senator I want to get to section 702 in a second but I got to ask you based on your experience when do you expect any trial of President Trump to begin given that the jurors are going to need clearances the lawyers are going to need clearances everybody's going to need full field investigations by the FBI the alternates all that stuff I don't see this happening in 2024. Well it never happens as fast as you think it will at the beginning and the course depends on what the strategy of President Trump's lawyers are if they decide to draw the process out they can probably do that to some extent but my experience Hugh as a former judge is that a lot of it depends on the judge's willingness to take control of the case and the courtroom and if he just if the judge just lets the lawyers do what they want to do then there'll be a tug of war but it'll be it'll be take much longer than you would otherwise think so I don't think you're you're off very far off it's not going to be next week it's not going to be next month it's finally in the next six months. And given that it's going to land in the middle of a presidential campaign ought that to have figured into the charging decision Senator? Yeah I think you know I don't know what what the time frame I mean what what ended the charging decision but what bothers me and I think what bothers most most people is the double standard and the the fact that President Trump was under attack by the FBI under James Comey and and the Justice Department and and then he had to live with a special counsel for two years and then they came up with exactly nothing and of course he's been through a historic two different impeachment trials in the United States Senate and now this and then President Biden and Hillary Clinton and others seem to get off scot -free that's very troubling I think to a lot of people. All right let's talk about section 702 because you're going to have a hearing on that tomorrow and it has been it's the authority to collect information on Americans collected incidentally in the surveillance of foreign nationals apparently the FBI has misused that database Senator what is the hearing about? Well Director Wray has put in place a number of corrective measures that which he claimed would prevent those sorts of abuses from happening again. This is a very important tool for our intelligence agencies but it's not designed to be used to spy on American citizens nor is it designed to be used in criminal prosecutions. This is strictly intelligence gathered on foreign individuals overseas but you're right incidentally if sometimes they're communicating with American citizens then or U .S. persons as they're called including legal permanent residents then they can be incidentally swept up in this but there has to be there has to be strict oversight minimization procedures to protect Americans but of course an American or U .S. person that's involved in espionage is guilty of a crime so we're not talking about sweeping that under the rug but we have to be very scrupulous about this and unfortunately the FBI and intelligence community has not been in the past damaging the trust that's so important to making the system work..

"Your colleague Senator Grassley went to the floor yesterday and talked about the FBI allegations level against Hunter Biden and Joe Biden. I don't know the merits of that anyone can file a report and anyone can say I've got telephone calls but he has clearly lost faith in the FBI. Is um I think that many Americans have lost faith in the upper reaches of the FBI um whether it was under Jim Comey or now under Christopher Wray we continue to see uh very very questionable conduct. I mean what Chuck Grassley done this in it for yesterday is when members of Congress who are reviewing a document by an alleged whistleblower about Joe Biden and Hunter Biden taking from rides foreigners that redacted was not just the names and identities of persons but also the fact that there were allegedly 17 audio recordings of Joe and Hunter Biden discussing this very matter. Now I can understand why the names or identities of others might need to be redacted to protect intelligence sources or criminal investigations. How on earth can you make the case that you need to redact the fact that one of the claims have audio recordings of the Biden's that's not a sensitive piece of information that can compromise an investigation that's only sensitive because it's explosive for the investigations of Hunter Biden and the Biden family. I think Christopher Wray has yet again more questions to answer about the conduct of the upper reaches of FBI. All right now if I can switch subjects uh Politico reporting this morning that Admiral Papparo is going to be nominated to be the CNO. There's also a story this morning in the Wall Street Journal that Xi Jinping has threatened America twice in the last month telling the Chinese people that they have to be ready for very terrible times. I believe him when he says that. What do you what do you make about the nomination of Papparo an aviator and what do you think about General Secretary Xi's warning to us? Well if President Biden does in fact nominate Admiral Papparo to be the chief of naval operations I think that would be a welcome choice. He's the chief admiral of our fleet in the Pacific. He has spent years confronting the China threats. I think he understands what the navy needs to do to grow and modernize to deter Chinese aggression because I think we should take Xi Jinping at his word. Time and again throughout history people failed to take dictators at their word. When Xi Jinping says the Chinese people need to be ready for war. When Adolf Hitler wrote Mein Kampf said that the German people need Lebensraum in the east. When the Kaiser said that we're going to chart a new course we want to replace in the sun. Time and again western leaders stuck their head in the sand and didn't want to face unpleasant realities and bear certain costs. No doubt costs to deter or to preserve the peace but costs that pale in comparison to the ultimate cost that came in World War I or World War II or what could be the worst most destructive event in human history. A war between communist China and the United States if we fail to preserve peace..

"Now, Molly, we won't see anything in this trial for a very long time. So the question then becomes for you and me as journalists, how do we handle the issue? Yesterday I had Ron DeSantis on my radio show. I did not ask him about this indictment because there's nothing he can say about it that I don't already know. Right. I can ask Donald Trump about it. There's nothing. But the media is going to obsess on this. And Xi Jinping threatened us this week. I'm going to talk to Senator Cotton and Senator Carter in this hour. I'm going to talk to him about Xi Jinping. What do you think media ought to do with this indictment now that we are moving into a presidential campaign and we're not going to learn anything new? Well, I do think they should cover the context, obviously, the context like we just discussed of what happened to the Department of Justice in recent years. You know, and I think that James Comey coming out and saying that no reasonable prosecutor would go after Hillary Clinton when she built a private server, lied about, you know, seemingly lied about whether she understood the classification system. You know, then to get to this point, they need to include that context instead of acting like the Department of Justice has the regard that it had like 10 years ago. Chuck Grassley has twice on the Senate floor now come out and said, I no longer trust the FBI. And he's been explicit about why, about how they leaked to The New York Times, but they won't give the American people transparency on this Biden investigation. He's seen the documents like the way he's handling it of saying, I don't trust these people to be telling the truth is an important context that the media should have. But I don't know how you don't cover, you know, this. Indicting your political opponents is something we normally associate with Soviet Union or Russia or third world countries. It is a major story that has to be covered. It just has to be covered far better than it's being covered now. I don't have that, but I just don't think I would dog every presidential candidate with what do you think today about the Trump indictment? Because there's not going to be anything more to say, Molly. There is, you know, there is a lot to say about what's happening with our Department of Justice. And that's one thing where every Republican, not just Republican candidate for president, but really every Republican needs to step up their game and take this on. Like, we can't let the country be destroyed. This is how it happens. And everyone needs to work. Like, I was impressed even with what Kevin McCarthy did yesterday. Some of this, how the, you know, the media are beneficiaries of the Espionage Act violations and they reward people who violate classified document handling. They give them jobs. They promote them on TV. People like Andrew McCabe and James Comey, Lisa Page, you know, Peter Strzok, like all these people are rewarded for their participation in doing what has been done to the Department of Justice and the FBI. And I think every Republican should understand that the media and Democrats are really working together here and they need to be on their A game. You know, I do think Kevin McCarthy set the standard yesterday in pushback. Molly Hemingway continues to keep that standard going. And it is, it must be in every single commentary about the Trump indictment that there are two Departments of Justice, one for Donald Trump and one for everybody else. Molly Hemingway, great to have you. I'll be right back. America, don't go anywhere. Senator Tom Cotton from the New York Times. Good morning, Hugh. Thanks for having me on. Senator, I'm not a criminal defense lawyer. I did represent one person once in court and I've had to argue a few United States attorneys out of indicting clients over land use matters, but I don't know anything about criminal law. You're on Intel and you're a lawyer. When do you expect the trial of Donald Trump to begin? Well, Hugh, first off, let me say I'm disappointed with Merrick Garland's indictment of former President Trump, partly because he's not just former President Trump. He's also the leading candidate for the presidency of the opposition party. And indicting the opposition party's leading candidate is a step that's more reminiscent of third world banana republics and the greatest republic known in the history of mankind. It's not something that should be done on edge cases or stretching legal theories only on ironclad, serious matters in which the law has been applied equally in a fair -handed manner. And I don't see how any neutral observer could look at, say, Donald Trump's case contrast to Hillary Clinton's case and think that the law has been enforced in an even -handed manner, but rather applying a double standard. What Hillary Clinton did was much worse than what Donald Trump is alleged to have done. Donald Trump is alleged to have of taken documents historical value and shown them to people that Mar -a -Lago didn't have security clearances. Hillary Clinton had set up an unsecure server in her house conducting diplomacy in real time on it on the nation's most sensitive matters that the former deputy director of CIA said on your show eight years ago almost certainly was compromised in real time by the Chinese or the disappointment and concern of so many Arkansans at the double standard that seems to be at work here. As for the trial itself, Hugh, I mean I'm not obviously privy to all the legal details. I just read what I see in the news. It would appear that President Trump has several culpable motions to dismiss or to exclude evidence that could undermine the case. I also note that the indictment talks a lot about the espionage act but never says a word about the presidential records act. And while the espionage act covers how you or others might have to handle classified materials or the charges you might face, former presidents are somewhat different. That's why we have the presidential records act that governs how they handle classified or unclassified materials in relation to the national archives. I also would imagine there'll be motions filed by the former president's lawyers about the propriety of what happened under the presidential records act not just the espionage act. So I think you could be looking at a trial pretty far off into the future certainly in 2024 if not beyond..

"That's what I'm saying. Unless we get clearances, we'll never know anything. Now, you're you're the law professor here. Haven't there been some trials for retention of glad or misuse of classified information? Oh, yes. But it didn't actually show the jury what the classified information was. I don't know that Byron. I think that you'll see pleas from people like General Petraeus, where they don't go to a jury trial. Yeah, I don't. And so a plea is different. No one ever sees the documents in the plea. But Trump isn't going to plead guilty, is he? No, no. And and listen, we need to see we you cannot have this trial go on and a conviction or an acquittal happen on the basis of secret evidence. I mean, you've already got the administration charging criminally its main political opponent. But think about this on the basis of secret evidence, Mike. It won't be secret to the jury. But if it is what they say it is in the indictment, we will never see it because it will compromise methods, sources and the defenses of the United States. But the jurors have to see it. I mean, there's no. And so therefore, the trial is going to take. I don't know why they brought this indictment. Now, I honestly don't. There will never be a trial before the election. Well, if I mean, politically, wouldn't Democrats believe that a trial, you know, next summer would be a really great thing for them? I mean, yeah, but, you know, the leading contender for the opposition party's presidential nomination, literally a courtroom on the day. Yeah. And Joe Biden pulled off a basement campaign, but it's pretty hard to pull off an indictment campaign. Do you think the president is going the former president? We got one minute. You think the former president is going to talk to reporters about this because his lawyers will be trying to tackle him if he does? Well, yeah, at some point, I think that he actually will, because he he always thinks certainly in terms of communications that he knows better than his lawyers. Yeah. Yeah. Byron, it's the story of the century, but it's going to take a century to tell the story. Good luck to you. I'm not going to spend much more than today on this because we don't know anything more than is in the indictment. And unless and until we see the documents, I can't even judge the indictment. And we're not going to see the documents unless they're declassified. And we're not going to see them declassified if they are what the government says. Byron York, you see him on Fox News, you see him on Fox Business. You read about him in The Washington Examiner, DCExaminer .com. Thank you, Byron. Stay tuned, America.

"Byron, my first reaction, I read the indictment and I said, that's it. And because I live in the blue bubble too much and I read Joy Behar and Keith Oberman. I saw that tweet of yours, the that's it tweet, yes. And even The New York Times was was peddling the story that he was selling nuclear secrets to the Saudis. Right. That's what that was the left storyline. And so it's just the documents. Were you surprised that it's just the documents? No, I wasn't surprised. I mean, I never thought for a moment that he was selling them to a foreign power or do or engaging in espionage, even though their Espionage Act charges. So, no, I thought that if if Trump were doing something like that, like keeping these documents, he was doing it as either souvenirs in the case of the Kim Jong Un letters or he was doing it to prove a point or pursue a grudge in the case of like Russia investigation. Now, it appears that whatever he did, whatever he kept regarding Iran and General Milley was just was to prove another point. So I always thought that it was basically keeping things that he felt were valuable in the various political feuds that he had. Byron, I had I was at Speaker McCarthy's forum yesterday hosting the panel on China and a donor to the Republican Party came up to me and said, you know, this trial is going to take forever because every lawyer is going to need a TCI, SEI, SAP clearance. Every juror is going to need a clearance. And every member of the court. And, you know, the FBI takes forever to run a full field. And they're right. You can't really judge this until you see the documents, can you? You know, this is so I mean, I've been saying this for so long on this case that from the very beginning, everybody got extremely agitated about this and discussed it for hours upon hours. And nobody knew what the documents were. And now I read the indictment and tell me if I'm nitpicking. I read the indictment and the indictment says the classified documents Trump stored in his boxes included information regarding defense and weapons capabilities of both the United States and foreign countries, United States nuclear programs, potential vulnerabilities of the United States and its allies to military attack, and plans for possible retaliation in response to a foreign attack. Okay, so it sounds incredibly serious. But then I thought, well, gosh, I mean, there's lots of documents available in the public domain that discuss this kind of stuff. It would be interesting to know how widely distributed that particular information was. Byron, have you ever held a clearance? No, I have not. Okay, I did from 84 until 89. And it was SCI SAP. And the stuff you see in SCI SAP is always the real deal. But the stuff that's marked confidential is rarely nothing that you can't get in a newspaper. Like they'll send over from the agency if the attorney general is going to sit down with the justice minister from Argentina, they'll send over a brief on the justice minister from Argentina, and they'll put a confidential sticker on it. And you still treat it classified, you don't screw around with it, because it's classified, there might be something in there, like he's having an affair or something like that. But it's it is a and by the way, I'm not saying any Argentinian minister had an affair, I'm making that up. But that's nothing. We can't know anything. And we won't ever know anything..

"Oh, of course he does. We're out of time. David M. Drucker on Twitter and the Dispatch. Thank you, David. I'll be right back, America. I think I'll ask David that question for a year before we get to a trial. Stay tuned. I'm doing you at the arraignment being covered on the Salem News Channel by Gallagher. Go watch it. Morning. Glory, America, bonsor. Hi, Canada. I'm you. You at Byron York is my guest, senior political reporter for the D .C. Examiner. Also see him on Fox News. Good morning, Byron. How are you? Good morning, Hugh. Doing well, thanks. OK. Completely nonpolitical question. When the I -10 fell down in 1994 during the Northridge earthquake, Pete Wilson, then Governor Pete Wilson moved heaven and earth and got it rebuilt in three months using a no bid contract and an incentive for early delivery. I think it went to Jaeger Construction. They got that in three months. The I -95 has fallen down in Philadelphia. The onus will be on Josh Shapiro, who I think is their rising star. When do you think he gets that reopened? It's not going to be that fast. We haven't had permitting reform. It takes a long time to do anything big. That tunnel in Boston, how many how many decades? Oh, the big dig was forever. But that I mean, that was not an artery that you need. I mean, they need the I -95 open. You know, I when that when it happened a couple of days ago, I happened to be watching the news or maybe I was on the news and I was and I was on Fox and they led with this. And I thought, my God, this is incredible. And then other shows weren't doing it because all they could do was talk about Trump. And I'm saying I'm thinking, you know, the aorta of American transportation has just been severed. And they're not even mentioning this. It was incredible. All right. Now, the I -10 is actually more heavily trafficked than the I -95, but it is one of it is if there are two main arteries in America, it's the 95 and the 10. What Wilson did is he invoked the California Constitution's emergency powers, suspended the California Environmental Quality Act, suspended all permitting and did a single bid, solo source, incentive laden contract with I think it was a construction bureau doing something like that. I do, because I think it's it's a way for him to become almost certainly their vice presidential nominee and presidential nominee in the future if he gets it done. What do you think? Well, it would be a way, but I just I find it hard to believe that any Democratic politician in the world of labor and Democratic interest groups and environmental groups could do something like that today. I just find that very, very difficult to believe. OK, 30 years have gone by. We will see. Now let's talk about the the new Reuters Ipsos poll. 81 percent of Republicans think that the indictment of Donald Trump, which we will be covering on the Salem News Channel live with our friend Mike Gallagher, who I'm afraid will himself be arrested for his performance and a funny thing happened on the way to the forum. But Mike will be outside of the Miami courtroom today at 9 a .m. 81 percent of Republicans, Byron, think it's politicized. How do you explain that number given the specificity of the indictment? Well, I I was I was in Iowa a week ago and talking to a lot of Republicans there confirmed what I had always thought, which is a majority, a big majority of Republicans believes that Trump was unfairly targeted beginning in 2016 and going on through his presidency. And by the way, I think they're right concerning the Russia investigation. So they believe Trump has been unfairly targeted and they believe that his pursuers will twist laws and regulations in order to get him. And now when this indictment comes out and a lot of people like Bill Barr say this is a very solid indictment, but when the indictment comes out, they immediately fit it into that existing template that they have, that context that they have that, oh, this is more of Trump being unfairly targeted..

"Houston. We don't have Duane, but we will have Duane. Let me begin with the news. The most important story is one I doubt you'll see, but I want you to understand it is by far the most important story. General Secretary Xi of China told China to prepare for extreme scenarios, including conflict with the West. The Wall Street Journal Lingling Way reports, as Beijing and Washington move gingerly towards restoring high level exchanges, Xi Jinping is stepping up his effort to gird China for conflict. Since last month, the Chinese leader has twice urged the nation to prepare for what he is describing as extreme scenarios or conditions, trotting out phraseology, implying the possibility of escalating tensions as the competition between the U .S. and China intensifies. At a top level meeting focused on national security on May 30th, the Chinese leader said, we must be prepared for the worst case and extreme scenarios and be ready to withstand the major test of high winds, choppy waters and even dangerous storms. A week later, Xi extended the concept to the economic arena while inspecting an industrial park in Inner Mongolia. Xi said efforts to build up the domestic market are aimed at ensuring normal operation of the national economy under extreme circumstances. All right. Believe them when you when they tell you what they're thinking. All right. They are our number one enemy in the world. They are an enemy. They are not a competitor. They are an enemy. And they are Leninist. And they are they reverted to communism. Second story, Kim Jong Un says he is, quote, holding hands with Vladimir Putin. And we have a another Wall Street Journal story and a message sent to Putin for Russia's National Day. On Monday, North Korea's 39 year dictator said the country's close relationship had weathered all the trials of history and that he is holding hands firmly with Putin. So it's the old Stalin band is getting back together. The Soviet Union, the remnants of it in Russia and Belorussia, China, as it was under Mao prior to 1956, closely aligned with Russia, North Korea. And they've got a new band member now on base is Iran. And so they're back together again. I don't want you to forget and everything else about the hoopla of the indictment today. The number one story in the world is that China wants to take it over. That's the number one story I'll be talking with Senator Cotton, Senator Cornyn today. Former President Trump is in South Florida preparing to appear today in Miami. He has indicted donors to a candle at dinner with him tonight in Bedminster. $100 ,000 a pop. Don't let the don't don't sleep on Donald Trump when it comes to figuring out a response. The I -95 fell down in Philadelphia yesterday. Now, this is not unprecedented. Then Governor Pete Wilson, finest governor in America's history. We like Pete a lot because I met the fetching Mrs. Hewitter to Pete Wilson fundraiser in 1978 on Mission Bay, San Diego. But Pete got the I -10 open in three months after the Northridge earthquake in 1994. Three months. So Governor Josh Shapiro just saying there's a marker on the wall. I believe he used Jaeger construction. All right. I think he blew off every CEQA environmental review. I think Pete said, no, we're going to rebuild the 10 right away. And so he said, forget all that stuff. I've got emergency powers as the governor. I'm giving a sole source contract to Jaeger. And by the way, Jaeger, you need to get this done in five months and we'll give you a bonus for every day that you deliver early. And they were done in three months. What a concept. So Governor Shapiro, first thing I would do today if I were you is call Pete. And Pete will freely give up his time. Smart, great American. Fred Ryan, the publisher of The Post is retiring and he's a great publisher. He's going off. He's been running the Reagan Library nonstop since Nancy Reagan retired from honorary chairmanship. So Fred is the chairman. Dave Trulio is the new CEO. And Fred is retiring from Washington to run the President Ronald Reagan Center on Civility and Politics. Good for Fred. And he will be missed at The Washington Post. He's a great guy, wonderful, wonderful human being. And he's been a great publisher and widely admired. JP Morgan is going to pay $290 million to settle the suits brought about them by the victims of Jeffrey Epstein. But they had nothing to do with it. Remember that. They've never met him. Didn't know who he was. Banked there by accident. JP Morgan, $290 million out the door. Hotel owners start to write off San Francisco as business nosedives. San Francisco's once thriving hotel market is suffering its worst stretch in at least 15 years. Hotel owners in New York and L .A. are nearly 25 percent lower in April than it was in the same month in 2019 before the COVID hit. And that just goes to show people don't want to go to San Francisco. People don't want to go there. Now, I think that there's an opportunity for Governor Newsom to buy those hotels and house all the homeless in them and do an operating agreement. But I don't think they'll do that. A, quote, landmark youth climate trial begins in Montana. This is pure puffery. Mike Baker of The New York Times should be arrested for impersonating a reporter. I'm sure he's a good reporter. But really, it's not a landmark climate change trial. It's got zero chance of succeeding. The kids who are suing because of their apocalyptic dreams of more of climate change should be thrown out today. It should have been thrown out before they ever took a picture going to the courthouse. They don't have standing. But I digress.

"Well, big writer change, let's focus on that. What do you mean by big rudder change? Well, I think this shift to more distributed flea is a significant change in how the navy is going to have to operate in the future. And the concept of being in more places at once is also a big point of it. I think Jerry makes his point in his article where we have 300 ships. They say maybe a hundred of them are deployable at any time, but in reality there's probably 60 of them out there anyone given time. That's a lot of ocean to try and cover with that small amount of ships. And so what it does is it strains the force. It strains the ships themselves and the strains the force, the strains of people. And it's not sustainable. So I think that type of thinking differently about the future and how we create this more agile and distributed force is going to be critical. And it's not something that you can just say, okay, one secretary comes in and in two years he says this is what we're going to do and then it's all of a sudden going to happen. There needs to be some sustained leadership to drive that through. And I can see maybe turning the Secretary of Defense over every time administration changed, but I think there needs to be more continuity services because that's where the rubber hits the road. That's where the budgets get executed. That's what I agree. By the way, the FBI director serves a term of up to ten years. So does the archivists of the United States they can be removed for cause, but the key is continuity and plan. Because I've been covering this for 23 years, mister secretary. And they've had more changes there than the browns have changed quarterback. You have the blessing of being a clip and browns fan. And you know what I'm talking about. You can't develop a program. If you have that change over and over again, and so if anything comes out of vectors, I hope it is the consideration that chaos simply is going to be there whenever you have a political system that substitutes people in. When we have four sect deaths and 6 sec navs, it's just, it's crazy. Right. You can't sustain anything. I mean, like I said, I used to write these vectors to the fleet every week to try and give them the sense of my priorities. I did that for 19 weeks, and then I was gone and then, I don't know, my parents, my successor, could do what he wants to do. And have different priorities. And then his successor can have different priorities. In the meantime, the navy still needs to be out there doing its mission. And so I think that's why when you ask that question earlier about what's the focus of The Pentagon. It is mostly about the day to day and managing the day to day rather than sort of the big picture things, at least from my perspective where I was sitting. I'm sure that kind of thinking is happening there. But day to day and where I look at my time and my calendar is much more about exigent things than it was about strategic things. Well, there are some things you can avoid. You covered the shooting of Pensacola, they covered the shooting at Pearl Harbor. It's a very important that you deal with the crisis at hand. Of course you cover the midway. Everything is in vectors. I encourage everyone to go to Amazon. Secretary Modi's last name is spelled MOD LY. Don't put an E in there or you won't find it on Amazon. You have to put MOD LY go browns and thank you, mister secretary for joining me and congratulations on vectors. Okay, thanks to you. Thanks for having me on. You're welcome..

"And that was the thing that really helped secretary lane drive. What happened to all those shipyards? The question is what happened to the ships we know where they are. They're in the ghost fleet and there they've been sunk or sold off. But what happened to the shipyards that built the 600 ships? As you know you after the iron curtain came down in Eastern Europe and we went through this grappling with this term of a piece of dividend, there was a massive consolidation in the defense industry. And through that consolidation, most of those shipyards were just shut down. Because it just wasn't the demand to continue to build them. So they're very expensive to operate and maintain. And so they basically disappear. I want to talk to you about the culture of the navy, civilian side management. Is it the same as the culture of the army civilian side management, the same as the air force civilian side management Space Force and coast guard, or are they uniquely dysfunctional in their own ways? Well, that's a hard question to answer without being pejorative. I don't know if they're uniquely dysfunctional. I think there are cultures in all three of them having not spent time with the army or the air force. It's hard for me to judge that. But these are bureaucracies and they grow and I talk about the great self siloing organization. When you have an organization that big, they self silo. And they come up with their own identities and ultimately what ends up happening with their consciously or subconsciously is that people seek to protect that identity. And that community and so for example, I think you're going to see if there is a serious movement towards unmanned naval aviation, you're going to have a revolt, I think, from career naval aviators who don't want to see that happen. And retired naval aviators that don't want to see that happen. So change is very hard to organization like that. I mean, it happened when we went from battleships to aircraft carriers. I suspect this next generation of change in the navy is going to experience the same type of thing. By talking about, I would get vectors to everyone on the transition team for the next Republican president. And I would do so because it would tell me what I needed and what I didn't need at The Pentagon senior level. If you were on the transition team for the next incoming Republican president and that president was committed to reclaiming the presence on the season necessary to guarantee freedom of the sea. It's not CCP specific. That's not Russia specific. That's the free seas, Pacific, a specific. What qualities would you look for for the Department of Defense? From sec death to sec nav, the sec army air force. Who would you look for in terms of skill sets to staff up the next Republican Pentagon? Who I think first and foremost, I think you have to have someone who truly understands the geostrategic context. It's a very complex geostrategic context and although we've been sort of heads down on this war on terror for 20 years in the meantime, the world continues to percolate and our adversaries continue to grow and get more aggressive. And so I think someone who truly understands that is critical. But I also think if you're thinking about a Secretary of Defense, I just believe you need someone who's very, very experienced and executive management at the highest level who understands organization change and understands what needs to be done to do that. But that being said to you, I think it's a challenge because of the high level of political turnover we have. Even in fairly stable administrations, people leave people get promoted. I was thinking about admiral gilday, who we chose to be the CNO in 2019. I believe he said 6 bosses since then. And when that boss is supposed to be the senior executive in the department, driving at $230 billion enterprise with a million people in it and that boss is changing and that boss has different ideas every time. Because the types of service secretaries and secretaries of defense you have in a Democrat administration are very different. Their priorities are different. My classmate is now the secretary of the navy. He has very different priorities than I had when I was secretary of the navy. So to some degree, I don't blame the admirals for saying, okay, well, yeah, we'll listen to this guy, but he's going to be gone soon. I think that they really have to seriously rethink how we do this, how we do the executive management in the departments. And I'm not suggesting I'm suggesting this. I'm not recommending this. But they may want to look at something more along the lines of what they do with the FBI, where the service secretaries who are responsible for driving this change and it has to be sustained change over extended period of time. You give them a ten year fixed term and you let them build their team, their civilian team to come in and drive that type of change, particularly when you're looking at a big rudder change, which I think we're probably need to be looking at for the navy..

"Mister secretary, let's talk about you are how you buy. Because complexity and procurement, you talk about the forward trying to add too many new systems under the fort at once, adding to the complexity. What is the answer to that? Because we obviously need more in ever increasingly advanced weaponry, but we can't forever be building the next best thing. Now, I agree, and I think I agree, I definitely agree with that almost every day on this. I think we have to move towards more rapid development of smaller, lighter, more agile, more nimble platforms that don't tie up as much capital because as I don't know if Apple mentioned this, but when the Ford was first developed, we were looking at it costing about $9 billion. It's coming in at about $13 billion. And we're just concentrating more and more and more firepower and cost and people on these kind of smaller number of platforms. And I think we have to go the opposite direction. I think we have to be able to experiment. We have to become comfortable with autonomous vessels that are basically things that we throw out there. And if we lose them, it's not such a big deal. And so I see that shift moving in that direction to sort of lower cost per platform. When I was in the navy during the Reagan buildup, the average cost of a navy ship during that build up was a $1 billion in real dollars. When I was there back again, 35 years later and we were trying to build towards the 300 plus ship navy. It was a $2 billion. And that's in real dollars. So you can see what's happened is we've concentrated a lot more cost. And a lot more expense and firepower on a smaller number of platforms. And I think that just increases our risk. Now, mister secretary, I'm very curious about the culture of senior decision makers at Pentagon. I've been since McNamara tried to turn it into the Wiz kids. Did the senior leadership of the Trump Pentagon sit down and think strategically or did they react to the day's events? Did anyone ever sit around and say, what do we need for our navy should we go to a dyad as opposed to a triad? They're the big questions. Does anyone do that anymore? I suspect that those questions are being held. I would say that a lot of the meetings and I talk about this in my book, more of the meetings that I was involved in were involved in trivia than they were with the big questions. And that's unfortunate, but it's what drives the agenda and The Pentagon. We're constantly responding to congressional inquiries and trying to keep optics under control and those types of things. And so we end up getting sucked into situations that don't necessarily grapple with the big questions. I think I give secretary Esper some credit in terms of his decision to do a serious study of the navy force structure, but I just didn't think it was necessary at that point. We've been looking at it for years. And he had a bit of he had some challenges with the national security adviser with respect to his responsibility it was to drive that. And I think there was a lot of political entry involved in that whole scenario. And I was just trying to stay out of that. I just wanted to get the navy on a course towards a better future and a bigger, more natural future..

"Now coming up after this interview admire I'm going to talk with former undersecretary of the navy and acting secretary of the name is Tommy Thomas Motley and one other thing I'm going to talk to him about are the Ford class because there's a lot in his new book vectors about the Ford class. I gather we have four under the Ford is underway. We have the JFK not far behind the enterprise and the Doris Miller. Are there going to be more than that? That's a wonderful question. You ought to ask Tom modley, who's a smart guy and a deep thinker about all this. My own opinion is that we are probably going to pause by the time that force USS story Miller gets out the door. I think we're probably going to pause and start thinking about more distributed firepower. But I don't think we're going to go away from large man platform. So I think what we're going to end up with is another class of aircraft carriers, but it's going to be smaller so we can build more of the more affordable, probably not nuclear power, hugely expensive in terms of personnel Manning and there'll be manned instead of manned aircraft here. There are going to be unmanned aircraft on the smaller, more distributed, more lethal kind of around the size of the big deck amps, the Iwo Jima size. You should ask Tom Motley what he thinks of that theory. I'm going to do that, but I'm just curious, do you think the navy is reconciled itself to that yet? I think by the time for more nuclear carriers come out and we're talking 15 plus years, yeah, I think we will be ready to accept the fact that these big magnificent nuclear powered 100,000 ton machines of war are still capable, but we need to be lighter, faster, more lethal so we can get closer to our opponents, take some losses and move on. And above all, we're going to move to unmanned. And you and I both know very proud navy fighter pilots. I think it's going to be a kind of a tough one for them to swallow, but particularly as artificial intelligence comes online to drive the maneuverability and capability of these unmanned vehicles, I think it's going to be the right way to go. One last question, admiral Stafford. It's one of the things that Tom modly remotely writes about. I always mispronounce it. Writes about in vectors is that during his tenure, Russian submarine activity in the North Sea increased significantly, what does that tell you about getting Sweden into the alliance in turkey's objections to it? Yeah, it just staggers me at this point that turkey is interposing these objections over domestic arguments that concern a Kurdish minority in turkey. President Erdoğan has an election in May. I think that will snap the spell and we will see Sweden admitted your point. All the more important as we see Russian subsurface activity and Russian surface activity operating in the Greenland Iceland UK gap, we need not only Norway a staunch NATO ally. We need to get Finland, which is up there on that Arctic border as well. They all need to come in last thing, and I think this happened on Tom's watch. We reactivated the second fleet, the Atlantic striking fleet, and that is also being increased by NATO, all the more reason to get Sweden into the alliance..

"So I think they'll be covering. But you know what's interesting, Molly, for years, my lefty friends say he was the only president impeached twice. I said, so what? Let's talk about operation warp speed and let's talk about the tax cuts or let's talk about killing how many of it Soleimani. Let's talk about serious things. The Abraham accord. So what? That he was impeached twice. And now he's going to be arrested and I'm going to add to it. So what? He still is this figure at the center of a populist upheaval in the United States, which is about elites, Peggy noonan was right in 2016. It's about the unprotected versus the protected. And this is going to drive that home, especially among everyone who's been wronged by the law. Oh, I think that's one thing the left has not realized is this is the type of thing that only furthers the appeal of president Trump for many Americans who feel yes that the elites, the people in power, have messed up every single major task that has been given to them that they don't like to be shown that things can be done differently. This actually probably helps reinforce that point more than it helps the left reinforce their point that Donald Trump is a bad person who needs to be whoever knows who knows what they want to do to him. Are you going to be on Fox today, Molly? Will we see you there? Yep, I'll be on outnumbered. Good for you. During the arraignment. Okay, during the arraignment, that'll be interesting. Molly Hemingway will see on outnumbered today. Thank you for joining me. Follow her on Twitter at MZ Hemingway. Beyond the sea welcome back America admiral James staff reedus retired United States Navy formerly allied supreme commander, head of southern command, strike group, the enterprise stack group. He joins me. Good morning, admiral. How are you? You're in transit somewhere, but I appreciate you calling in. It's my pleasure. I'm actually in New York City today. You're not being arraigned, are you? I am not. I hear somebody else might be, but it's not going to be Jim stavridis. That's good. Now, admiral. I really want to talk to you about two stories that have nothing to do with the circus and Laura Manhattan today. The first is that Finland joined NATO and as The Washington Post puts it, doubling the alliance's land border with Russia. We've talked about this before, but when history looks back, they're going to pay almost no attention to the indictment and a whole bunch of attention to this. Why is this so significant? Oh, I first, I can not agree with you more. This is the story of the day globally and a lot of different ways. And I'll give you three reasons. It's extremely important and that they're doing high 5s and Brussels, the headquarters of NATO and over in Moscow, Vladimir Putin is sulking in a corner somewhere. Number one, you already mentioned 800 mile border that Putin now has to defend. And by the way, the north of that is the Arctic, the high north, which Putin covet much harder to make that work with Finland as a member of NATO. Number two, pure military capability, the fins because they have a very aggressive mandatory draft system because they keep everybody's military skills up at a high level. They can put 300,000 troops in the field in about 90 days. Think of it this way. Russia's broken army would be lucky to put 200,000 additional troops in the field. Here comes one nation in the NATO with 300,000 troops and third and finally history. You don't remember. Neither do I, but we know the history of 19 39 when Russia, the Soviet Union invaded Finland, the Finns fought them to a standstill in the winter of war. There's a lot of fighting spirit in Finland directed against Russia. So for all those reasons, it's really a good day for the alliance..

"I think they're going to choose Trump again. And enjoy enjoy that. Well, we'll see what the Republican primary electric thinks. I'm in Switzerland on that question, but Bethany, I hope you'll let Truman back in next week. I mean, I like talking to you, but I love having Truman. He makes you relax and now that I know that he's a good Family Guy. Forgive Truman, pardon Truman, let him back in. Thank you, Bethany mandel, follow on Twitter at Bethany shonda. Go get stolen you. We'll eventually get around to that when the Trump tidal wave passes. Stay tuned America on YouTube. If that's all that is my welcome back America morning glory, I'm here at that Peggy Lee with today's theme song after 8 years of get Trump. 8 years of 90% negative coverage, we appear to be facing 34 counts of altering financial records. Molly Hemingway of Fox News and the federalist joins me, Molly, we've had Mueller for two and a half years. We've had to impeachments we've had Jack Smith who looks a little bit odd to me chasing documents that went to Mar-a-Lago as this all there is, well, this is a very weak case, but so have been so many of the other attempts that they have gone after president Trump. This is one of the ways they'll try to go after him. Jack Smith is still pursuing it. There's not really much there, but it doesn't matter. I think for the left, they just want to see this person arrested. I just want to see this person arranged. They just want to do whatever they can to prevent any democratic process from playing out that might work out differently than they would hope. Justice Jackson, he was attorney general Jackson before he rose to fame on the Supreme Court as a Nuremberg prosecutor, gave a famous speech on the job of a federal prosecutor, said we prosecute crimes not people. This appears to me these three converging rivers of prosecution appear to me to be about prosecuting a person that would not have happened in any other circumstance. Oh, I think that's completely right. I don't think Americans have a problem with prosecuting any former president if someone murders someone or commit some kind of crime and they used to be president. Well, of course, you would prosecute them. That's not what this is. This is show me the man. I'll find you the crime and it's laughable how weak this is. Given that that's their approach, not following the rule of law, but just going after a man that they hate and this is all that they could find. I'm actually kind of surprised I'm not growing up with president Trump, then just Donald Trump. You kind of imagine there might be something there. They've had such trouble finding a crime. They're now resorting to this convoluted legal theory that's never been tested, never been tried on anyone else and that no reasonable prosecutor would try. Yeah, it may not, it may not make it past pre trial motions. Byron York reminded me, and I'm glad he did. I want to remind you of this Molly that for years and years and years, Trump wouldn't release his tax returns. Wouldn't release his tax returns. So in an extra legal move, the last gasp of the Democrat house of the last Congress released his tax return. No one has found a story. Is there one storyline out of those tax returns, Molly Hemingway? No. I mean, they released them, which was wrong to do. I mean, I think that people running for president should release their tax returns, but they don't have to. And if they don't want to, that's fine. There was nothing there. Just like with the Russia collusion hoax, you know, a lot of people who've done business in Russia or tried to do business in Russia. They could have found something there. They couldn't find anything there. And now here with all the type of campaign finance violations that you might find in a very complex campaign. They've got nothing there. But that's not stopping them. The fact that there are no crimes is not stopping them from charging with crime. And that's what's very sad about this moment. And there's not much that Americans can do here other than retaliate, find people to prosecute former Democrat presidents or rising stars in the Democrat party. There's a lot that could be prosecuted. Or charged. So I.

"Morning. There's not going to be a gag order. There just isn't. No, I don't see how they're actually can be. And I put this instead of looking at OJ or anything like that. I put this actually in the context of investigations of Trump. And for the last 5 days, and actually for two or three weeks before that, we've seen a phenomenon play out that we saw in previous investigations of Trump, which is that there's a period of secrecy in which there's all sorts of dark speculation about something terrible Trump has done. And legal investigation into it. But we don't know any of the facts. And sometimes this goes on for a long time and there's actually 5 examples. I mean, the classified documents case to this day, we do not know what classified documents or even have just good descriptions of what classified documents were involved with that. The Mueller report, remember it came out, huge speculative turned it over in an unredacted state to the Justice Department. Huge speculation about his Mueller found that the smoking gun, all sorts of speculation about a report, nobody had seen and Bill Barr did us all a favor by summarizing the big two points, namely that Mueller didn't establish collusion and he did not reach a conclusion on obstruction. Then it was the first impeachment. There was there was a secret whistleblower for goodness sake. Then there was all this huge speculation, Democrats were going on TV saying that there's something so bad that Trump might be impeached and nobody knew what it was, including Republicans on Capitol Hill until Trump finally burst the bubble and released the transcript of what everybody was talking about. Then there was the grandfather of it all, the dossier, which was going to stay secret all the time until BuzzFeed burst the bubble and released it. And we all owe them a debt for doing that. That was a very good thing to do. And then finally, this is one actually the secrecy was imposed by Trump. It was a dumb mistake on his part. But the tax returns. There was talk for years and years about terrible dark secrets of criminality in Trump's tax returns. And finally, we see them. And a lot of newspapers did deep dive into them. And then it just disappeared. There's nothing there. It really is. We always benefits the accuser. It benefits the accuser and that's where we've been for the last 5 days, and then probably two or three weeks before that in this Manhattan case. And we're going to stay there because Jack Smith, you know, again, omens and portents. Seems to me hell bent on indicting the president for obstruction of justice. The Georgia grand jury meeting. Do you think Smith is going to indict him for mishandling classified documents too? Is he going to indict an underlying crime or is it just going to be eating the obstructed and investigation into a crime that we're not even charging? I don't know, Byron, all I know is if he does the latter about they're going to have to charge a bunch of people. Because if it's a strict liability crime and you're going to have to go back and look at the president, President Biden, you're going to have to look at vice president Pence you're going to have to go back. I've always said from the beginning from my experience in the Nixon foundation, classified documents show up in every single president's possession. It's almost impossible not to do it. And post presidency, if you communicate with your successors, you end up getting classified documents as well. It's a spreading ink stain, but the obstruction story seemed to be leaking out. And Jack Smith, I don't know him. He just strikes me as somewhat fanatical. Yes. It was kind of a photo of him that looks really. Right. I mean, in the whole world. But the pattern of his career is not a normal legal career..

"34 times zero is zero. We do know, and this is rank speculation because I've been saying for days, we just don't know what's in the indictment. Now, we do know that when Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen for paying off stormy Daniels, the Trump did it and installments, and he wrote 11 separate checks. With to pay off the $130,000 plus a big bonus. So it may be like you're walking on the sidewalk and you see a no trespassing sign and you take ten steps past the no set dressing time, then you take ten steps back and your charged with 20 counts of trespassing. Yes. I don't know exactly what this is, but it's hard to see a 34 count indictment without significant repetition of charges. Well, this is my theory, Byron, and we'll see if it comes to pass. I think it will be ridiculed. And we don't know because we haven't seen it. And the reason that it was sealed and in a highly unusual, though not illegal, very rare move to seal an indictment for someone who is not a risk of flight or unless someone is named in it that otherwise didn't know they were going to be named in it. The only reason to seal it is to keep it to create the media mayhem without having the real stake there. It's all sizzle no steak. And that it will fall apart today. I would not be surprised, and I will say they brought on this Todd blanche, who left cart Waller, which is the one of the largest and oldest firms because his firm wouldn't let him take the representation. He's a he's a swing for the fences kind of guy, as I think the other people are, how do you make of Trump's silence on media but letting his legal team speak? Well, I mean, that would be smart. I mean, as years have gone by, Trump's lawyering has gotten worse and worse. I would say the best lawyering he got was his defense in the first impeachment. And he had good representation by John dowd in the Mueller matter. And then by the time the second impeachment, it was just a joke. And remember that the key bit of advice that dowd gave him was followed never talk to a prosecutor. Do not do not take a deposition, do not agree, do not do that. And John dowd, for my book, John dowd, talk to me extensively and talk to me about talking Donald Trump out of testifying to Mueller. Because he John doubt felt that it would undoubtedly be a perjury trap. And that Trump was very likely to fall into it. Likely unintentionally because Trump had mastered the details of the whole story. What are we going to do without Michael avenatti, Byron? Well, you know, just as they say, you can run run for president from prison. Why can't you be like a CNN commentator from prison? He is in prison and otherwise he would be everywhere because I recall he was a lawyer for stormy Daniels and he was an ended very badly with stormy Daniels. Well yeah, I took her money. She took so he's in jail, stormy Daniels is nowhere to be seen. This is not like OJ because there isn't a body. There are a set of ledgers. There aren't two bodies. There are a set of ledgers. There isn't a route. There's no speculation. I don't know how this gets to trial. But if it does, it will come in the middle of the election season. I mean, in the middle of the debate season, so I told a caller earlier this.
"president trump" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"How did you connect with president Trump or candidate Trump? So Larry kudlow and I and laugh were interviewing all the presidents who were running all the candidates for president back in late 2015. And remember there were a lot of 16. I don't know if we were to remove all of them, but we did most of them. And Trump was one of the last ones we talked to. And how did that discussion go? First, well, what happened is he wanted to meet with Larry and myself privately. And that was Corey Lewandowski. Remember Cory was running the campaign, did a fantastic job. And we went and I didn't like Trump. I didn't I've never met him. I just didn't like him. I just thought he was kind of a blowhard of blah blah blah. And we went in and spent an hour and a half just me, Larry, and Trump. No, other people. Which I thought was interesting. Again, usually these politicians are filled with people. And I remember Larry and I'll never forget this. Larry and I walked out of that room and were like, he's going to be president. Really? That's how blown away we have. But he agreed with you. We had a great conversation. I mean, I love Trump because you can argue with the guy. Yeah. You know? You know, and it was me, and I was just so blown away by this guy. I don't know. Look, I told Trump. I don't agree with you on trade, and you know, bite back and forth, but I love the fact that he was willing to take on the conventional wisdom in Washington. And the whole drain the swamp message. That's why I won. That's right. Totally. Totally. Yeah, so my first meeting with him was exactly the same. Corey called me up, summer. I think it was June of 2015. And said there's a GOP candidates debate this fall on national security and mister Trump wants somebody to help him prepare. Would you meet with him? And I was like, not exactly my cup of tea, but I went to New York and it was just me. President Trump and Corey in a room. For 40 minutes, crazy blue sky discussion from the Civil War to nuclear weapons. And I could tell within milliseconds that this man hates political correctness, hates the swamp, and he has a passion for America. So I said, sure, I'll work for you. And going back to what you said previously about all the naysayers, all the people that float around and say, no, the easiest way to piss him off. And I'm sure you've seen this. Is if somebody from the administration, even if you're a four star general, if you came to him with something and he said, why are we doing it like that? And if you said to him, well, because that's how we've been doing it for 20 years. He would say excuse me. That's not a reason. That's why they never say that to the boss because for him there were no sacred cows. We talked to Stephen Moore he's the author of Trump and so many other works. Included.
