"Explain that you text me about two things that drew my immediate attention Tell America what's going on Yeah well this week we've got two big bills that are going to be coming up The national defense authorization act which course is important for funding and authorizing our defense But in it is a new provision that we've never had before a provision that would add women to the draft The second thing that's up is the continuing Let's slow down on that Hold on let's do that one first Okay Add women to the drift You know chip I'm older than you And I remember when actually we would have a national discussion about these things before people get slipped this crap into these bills Now who put it in the bill Do we know and did any Republicans vote for it Well this is the exact point right The national defense authorization act the NDAA passed out of the House of Representatives with two thirds two thirds mark of Republicans voting for it with a provision in it that included drafting women also a provision that had red flag laws in it to go after guns of our service members as well as all sorts of garbage for climate training and diversity stuff But importantly drafting our daughters for the first time in history And so a lot of us have raised that issue It's gone over to the Senate and they're about to vote on it They voted on closer tonight Now good news They actually denied cloture Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans denied cloture tonight So I think there's a debate on the other amendments to the bill So I'm trying to elevate and I wrote a letter to Mitch McConnell and to Kevin McCarthy saying the official position of Republicans should be that under no circumstances should we vote for the national defense authorization act if it continues to include this provision to draft women or at least as an at least get rid of the draft

GOP Leader McCarthy Spoke for More Than 8 Hours to Delay Passage of Spending Bill

"Kevin McCarthy to his great credit gave the longest speech in house history yesterday. Trying to create the public media drum beat to try to have people start to actually care that the House of Representatives is about to embark on the most radical unprecedented? Public domestic spending agenda in the history of our country. Let's play cut 88 Kevin McCarthy. Nobody elected Joe Biden to be FDR. But AOC said I did, cut 88. It's no secret that this bill is too extreme, too costly. And too liberal. Just a few weeks ago, congresswoman Abigail spanberger said nobody elected Joe Biden to be FDR. AOC interrupts him and says, I did. That's that's what colleges create self centered individuals who are miserable. It went on last night where House Democrats started heckling Kevin McCarthy and saying I can't wait mister speaker and tells them not to lower their mask or they will get the fine play cut 98. After one party rule in Washington, the changed by executive order, I can wait mister speaker. They can finish their conversation. You can finish. No, you can finish. Don't lower your mask. You'll get fined. You're gonna get fined. I'm just warning you. Gentlemen will suspend. Kevin knows he's gonna be speaker next

Congressman Jim Jordon Explains the GOP's 3-Step Plan to Rein in Big Tech

"Congressman Jordan, I was invited after the election to meet with one of the top members of not the political conservative class, but the RNC itself. And I said, fine, I'll meet with you. We had lunch very close to my studio here and I he asked me my advice as to what should happen now. Now that allegedly Biden won. And I said, if you guys want to be taken seriously by America, by at least 74 million Americans, if the Republicans want to be seen as serious, there's only two issues you must prioritize right now. One of them is election integrity. We've got to get serious on making it impossible or hard to steal elections even in cities like Philadelphia and Chicago. The second thing I said is big tech. You've got to be as serious as a heart attack on stopping the censorship of any American. Will you talk to us about what you're seeing from your colleagues? Does the GLP get it? Do we have a plan when it comes to big tech congressman? Yeah. Yeah. The first thing is, take away their liability protection. At a minimum, we've got to get rid of the section two 30. Take away this immunity, this liability protection that they've enjoyed. They're making editorial decisions. They're sensitive and conservative. I always always tell the story that this was a couple of summers back. I guess we'll come back in 2018. But Matt Gates gives me a call, and he says, Jim, Twitter is shadow banning us. And I'm like, I didn't know which out of any man. I said, well, that sounds terrible. Now, what is he explained to me? Turned out it was. They were in fact a shadow banning Gates represented Meadows representative Nunes and myself. So you got 435 members of Congress, got a hundred senators 535, only four. Only four were being shadow banned by Twitter. And it happened to be right in the middle of the whole Trump Russia investigation when we were pushing back on all the BS coming from the Justice Department. So this becomes a news and Twitter sends out a statement that says well, it was just a glitch in our algorithm. And I'm like, glitching your algorithm, what did you put in the algorithm the names Gates Meadows known as Jordan? Give me a break. So you're exactly right. So that's step one. Step two is we actually need to get that. There are some antitrust cases happening. We need to get those to the Supreme Court on an expedited fashion, so that we can get an answer. It sure seems like justice Thomas wants to look at this. Are these companies so big and so powerful that we need to break them up? Do we need to reform our antitrust? How do we have to do it? So we think that is that's the second avenue that we have to do. And then third, we need to look at, I think, regular Americans having a private right of action against these companies, the ability to sue when they censor you when they take down your content, when they throttle back your ability to reach people via social media. So I think those are the three things that we're trying to look at, but certainly to start its dissection two 30, that needs to happen

Federal Investigators Launch Civil Rights Probe Into Southlake, Texas Schools

"I want to pivot here to a story that is, it's really, it's a massive story. It's out of southlake, Texas, federal investigators, this per NBC News launched civil rights probe into southlake, Texas schools. Now you will remember that south Lake became one of the hotbeds in this CRT school board battle that has been raging across the country with concerned parents. Now yesterday Charlie did an amazing job covering memo gate as we are thus dubbing it. Where it is now become clear that despite Merrick Garland's claims that there was no FBI, you know, surveilling of parents, that is indeed the case, a whistleblower has come forth. Some of our favorite representatives like Jim Jordan out of Ohio have been leading on this issue, actually, we have Jim Jordan's going to be joining the show here soon for a long form discussion here shortly. It's also got a great book out, recommend everybody checking it out. So Jim Jordan's been out front on memo gate. Now, we find out that there's something brewing. And I don't love the direction. There's two simultaneous concurrent streams that are running counter to what we all thought we learned after Virginia. After even New Jersey was too close to call an election night. After Republicans swept races all across the country. Even in Seattle. What were the messages? That we thought we learned? Well, that CRT is dumb, and that parents don't like it, and that it's a losing issue for Democrats. And that Republicans get rewarded when they fight things like CRT. When they don't take a neutral stance in the public square, but fight it with everything they've got and they say, listen, I'm going to exercise state power and not cop out on some, you know, we believe in small government, which we do, but these are not mutually exclusive things. The government as constituted in the United States of America is designed fundamentally to protect the rights of its citizens. And to predict the right to protect the rights of parents. And what conservatives too often do is they hide behind that as a excuse to do nothing

Gregg Jarrett on Adam Schiff's Disgraceful Legacy

"Greg Gerry, you sent me a piece on Friday entitled Adam Schiff's disgraceful legacy. Right there, we heard him say the following. Anyone who lied to Christopher Steele. Or the FBI should be prosecuted. What about chairman of the intelligence committee of the House of Representatives who lied to America for four years about their having seen the quote incontrovertible evidence of Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow? There are a lot of liars associated with the great Russia hoax and the ensuing witch hunt. Hillary Clinton, Christopher Steele, Igor steel source, I'd add James Comey to the list. But in my book, I wrote in the column, the most remorseless liar of all the flagrant huckster of hysteria over the Russia hoax is none other than Adam Schiff. Which Sean Hannity loves to call shifty shift. I mean, he is the most mendacious of them all. I mean, he is the top of the party not in terms of who lied the most and most often for four years. That's right. You know, he'd walk a mile for a camera shift did hundreds and hundreds of interviews with the stock up media. They didn't know a damn thing because they didn't bother to actually investigate any of the allegations or try to corroborate any of the dossier they simply took it as gospel as if it were scripture from Moses. You know, and so they are winning accessories the media. But they were played for fools. They were winning dupes. And at the hands of people, like Adam Schiff, who kept insisting over and over again, week after week year after year for years that he had in convertible evidence that Trump was a Russian asset who plotted with Putin in the bowels of the Kremlin to steal the 2016 election he said he had concrete evidence, absolute evidence, he'd seen it with his own eyes. We're just on the verge of the big reveal and he promised again and again, he was going to reveal it, but oh, you know, it's classified information right

"Hands down. Maternal mortality rates are more than twice as bad in the us as any other developed nation. Right this is awful. We often have this idea of well. Our private healthcare system. We get the best outcomes right even though we have to pay a little more this is not true. We are getting worse outcomes with our healthcare system and black moms diet three to four times the rate of white moms one of the whitest of all racial disparities in women's health. This is a serious issue and the issue has been getting worse not better over time and we just don't hear enough people talking about it when it comes to return mortality allowed times people think. Oh like you have to be or this is a issue that affects poor people. This is an issue that affects uninformed people are. This is an issue that affects people. That don't have health insurance. But that's not necessarily the case. If you listen to beyond say she has a story to tell. There are women who are rocking it. On the tennis. Court such as serena williams and she tells her story often about what she had to deal with when she was giving birth and they're women like chalan irving who an epidemiologist with the this is a woman who had a phd. She worked in medical science and despite having all the information despite having healthcare despite being surrounded by people who know what's going on and being able to have really informed conversations about her pregnancy. She still died so when it comes to this. We have to acknowledge that there is a racial disparity when a comes to mature mortality. Were black women are a lot more likely to die whether or not you're educated whether or not you have insurance so this is not necessarily about socio economics. There's something deeper going on here it. I've had a lot of experience advocating either for myself or my mom when she had brain cancer. And i learned a lot about how to communicate with medical personnel. You really have to advocate for yourself. But i think the issue that we see as women and we all know people who've had we ought to people have medical experiences of physicians just not listening and it's also true that women are more likely to be sent home when they're having a heart attack or stroke because they're not listened to their told things zaidi.

"Conflict management person. That is just insanely awesome. And i just want to say our listeners. Like this is what leadership looks like. And i think people like representative kilmer and the others on his committee. Really you guys are going to build trust with the american people because they in and day out in a committee. That's not on tv. You guys are delivering for the americans. Thank you i appreciate. I appreciate that and we've got a lot of work to do. I think part of the reason you seen our committee get extended now a couple times is just a recognition that we're on the right track and that there's disappointing meat on the bone when it comes to doing things to make congress work better and we're gonna we're gonna try to get as much as we can within the time. Our committee exist. So we've talked a lot about your committee. We've talked about the great work you've been doing. And maybe there's some americans and we have international asserts. maybe they're thinking about their political processes as well. What would you say to those folks out there who are like this sounds amazing. How can we support this. How can we. Maybe make sure that it continues. Make sure that the recommendations of this committee makes actually be implemented. What would you say to folks who are curious about that. A few things one encourage people to follow the work of the committee you mentioned. Our website is modernized. Congress dot house dot gov and we've got social media sites and we put up our hearings on on our site so understand informed to every person who's listening to your podcast who lives in the united states is represented by somebody and i encourage them to reach out to their member of congress and and and really to engage them on the work of fixing congress. I think one of the most important things we can do is just have the institution function better. And i think it's fair for For for constituents to say hey you know how. What are you doing How invested are you in making congress. Work better for the american people and then three. We have on our website the ability for the public to engage if they have ideas if they have suggestions We're we're we're trying to kind of crowd source. I mentioned we've been pulling on experts but among the experts are just the american people know how things ought to work and how things should work. My observation is the american. Public is exhausted with the dysfunction in washington. Dc and their right to be exhausted. And i think the citizenry at large is and should be as invested as anybody. Seeing this committee work. Well i'll be sure to let my representative dave joyce who is on the committee to let them know that he should continue being on the committee so Thank you for that..

"Representative kilmer. Welcome to the podcast to be with you. Thanks for having me. Yeah thanks for joining us. This is the first current political person that we've had. We had might davila on earlier. But john kroger and john kroger. That's right but i guess let's just start with this episodes about modernizing congress. So let's why do we need to modernize congress will. I will start off by acknowledging the as a member of congress. I'm part of an organization that according to recent polling is less popular than headlines colonoscopy is in the rock band nickelback and based on what you've seen over the last many years you've got a pretty good sense of why that's the case you've seen government shutdowns. You've seen bickering. That often looks like it's a takeoff on the jerry springer show and i think at this point as an institution congress is punching below. Its weight on. My observation is most functional organizations. Do some introspection the ones that do it. Well do it regularly and try to figure out how they can improve their performance in congress that happens about once every twenty or thirty years or so so congress will about every twenty or thirty years create a committee to look at the function of congress. And that's that's the committee. I chair now. The select committee on the modernisation of congress which makes it sound a little bit like the. It help desk. But you know really is focused on. How do you have a congress that functions better for the american bowl. And that's really our north star in the work that our is doing fantastic. So whose idea was it to start the select committee so about three years ago you started to see some conversations a few months before the election to say right now. We don't know who's going to be in charge. And can we have some discussion around. Maybe changing some of the rules of this place so that might function a little bit better and you had democrats and republicans sitting down around a table saying. Let's look at the at the beginning of each congress. There's a rules package where you basically set the rules of the road and we started identifying things that should change and interestingly enough we would have these conversations and inevitably someone would mention something like and we need to fix. Congress uses technology and we said well. That's not really a rules thing. That's that's definitely a thing. Congress has been described as an eighteenth century institution using twentieth century technology to solve twenty-first-century problems. But it's not really something that should go in the rules package so we kind of put it in this sort of you know the player to be named later. Box right And then you someone would say well you know we gotta do something about staffing congress's notorious for burning through staff and having a low rate of retention and we all acknowledge. Yeah that's the thing that needs to be worked on but probably not in the rules package and we identified. Probably a dozen of those types of issues at which point we said so what what should we do you know. We had some good ideas around rules changes and then we so. What do we do with this package of things that also requires some analysis and hopefully some.

"Question number twenty one. The house of representatives has how many voting members the answer is four hundred thirty five. Here's a quick civics lesson to help you remember that unique number. The house of representatives is the larger chamber of congress since one thousand nine hundred twelve. The house of representatives has had four hundred and thirty five voting members however the distribution of members among the states has changed over the years each state must have at least one representative in the house beyond that the number of representatives from each state depends on the population of the state. The constitution says that the government will conduct a census of the population every ten years to count the number of people in each state the results of the census are used to recalculate the number of representatives. Each state should have for example if one st gains many new residents. That state could get one or more new representatives if another state loses residents that state could lose one or more but the total number of voting. Us representatives does not change so again questioned. Twenty-one is the house of representatives has.

"Representative Marie Newman joins the show and she's got some help. Hopefully, in the way on the way in the pipeline, I should say for small businesses, and also at some point we want to get to Maria. Very personal story you shared with team Bo, your child and you were very outspoken about some issues that I know you feel very passionately about. How are you this afternoon? Thanks for calling in the show. I'm great and good to be here. Anna represented Newman Tell me what this is because we do talk about small businesses all the time. In the smallest of the small businesses you recognizing needs some help, and you've come up with some legislation that you hope will provide some of that help. Yeah, you know, even in my own district, and, uh, about 80% of all businesses are smaller micro businesses and and those that are generally run by families and those great places. You like to go right in your neighborhood and they suffered the most through the pandemic. I can get very clear to everybody. So what the rest act is give them some cats. Tax relief. These are the increasing their deductions so they effectively have more working capital in their business. Okay, So how does how does that work? If I'm a small business owner? I'm in a community. I say. You know what? This sounds good. It's you know, it's legislation right now. How would how would we go about getting some of this? And what about the chances it's going to pass? Yes. So the good news Whether you use an accountant or not for your business, um it will be infected passes and it's bipartisan. The good news is that both sides of the aisle like it effectively. Your accountant will know that you will now instead of having a 20% reduction. Excuse me deduction for your business expenses. You'll have a, uh, a 25% deduction, and that effectively allows you to take far less in taxes and actually on allows you to have more working capital in your business. Um, and that's good news. We talk about this all the time. I'm sure it's I think it's still true post pandemic that they're the economic driver for new jobs in the state of Illinois. The small businesses are the ones that are responsible for that kind of growth. 100% they are, you know, the intact, you know, be pre pandemic. It was about 54% of our economy was small businesses right? And, um, that has changed slightly, but it's still the driver and the biggest growth theory A nationwide Yeah, that's it's important to keep them going, and they seem to be the hardest hit. We do talk about that all the time as well. Um, getting back on their feet. Are you hearing anecdotally in your district as you talk to folks across the district is are things looking up for them? Are we still in danger of losing even more of our small businesses? I think it's definitely looking up. Now we did lose. You know, over a million businesses nationwide and a good chunk of our small businesses in Illinois, three suffered or some of them even have to close. What I'm seeing, though, is I do small business tours over the last six months is that, um, we are seeing relief, and we're seeing that a lot of our restaurants got some relief from the from the FDA ideal and tpp loans. In the grant. So we're seeing folks rebounding and getting opening their doors again. Good news all way around. Yeah, it is good news. And I think that they're hoping to get more people to come back to work, particularly in the service sector. We are seeing some people left the business or not returning to those jobs. And I know we hear all the time, uh, that that kind of thing. It's difficult and on the restaurant industry in particular. Absolutely. And one of the biggest reasons that cited in all the studies when we look at that is that, um, these folks don't have child care. Um, we've lost about 70% of our child care system in this country. So one of the pieces of legislation that's coming out in the family fact is to support childcare and every K and and have child care resources readily available for families that, um one or both parents work. Yeah. And you said this legislation that you introduced has got bipartisan support. So you've got a good chance of getting to pass. When would it get past? Is it Is it soon? I mean, I know not everything worse as quickly as we like in D. C, but sometimes it's good to be tomorrow. You know, I if I had my brother, but it will be before we introduce it. It has to go through some work right on committee. So, um, it will be introduced in the next couple months. And then what we hope to have it is, um embedded and passed so that in fact if available For taxes next year. Okay, Can we talk about something? You've been talking about? Openly a personal, um, a personal conversation you've been having with your child. Evie, you are in teen Vogue recently with her. You appeared in a special issue. About her transitioning transgender and to a transgender. Guess how old is she now? Is she she in college or he? How do we? What's the pronoun? She is her pronoun as she and her name is Eddie. And she transitioned about. Oh, gosh. Almost six years ago. Um and we, you know the folks that teen Vogue wanted to hear her story, so we shared it and I couldn't be more proud of the she She did a lot of work, and she's doing really well. No. Um And our story is important because while Evie had great support from friends and family and all kinds of resources here in the Chicago worried because the state of Illinois is a very transgender friendly and L G B T Q friendly state Most states aren't and we thought it was really important to talk about this story. So those folks that are in those states that don't have all the resources know that there is help on the way the the Visa Equality Act, And so we sat down with team though they had that conversation. And what would the Equality Act do? How does that accomplish that? Yeah, The Equality Act is, you know it's pretty simple. It would prevent discrimination in employment, education, housing workplaces, um, in public spaces and on And right Now, there are many states sadly, honor that still find it very allowable to discriminate based on housing, and they can deny your application and a bunch of different things, Uh, in terms of looking for a job, so it is really it's a very serious situation. And it's just the basis of our foundation. Right, which is equity and equality. So all we're saying is that that we want equality for LGBT LGBTQ, plus community. Nothing more. Yeah, I hear you and your team Vogue. People would like to take a look at it. It is a fascinating look. And you talk about you having you dealing with it personally, as well as E V dealing with what she has been going through and she found support here as you point out, not every place. Allows or offers that sort of support. You said, pretending to be something you're not is literally the hardest thing on the planet. It's the most destructive thing to yourself. But everyone around you, and then you talk about creating an environment where everyone is equal with the premise of this equality Act. How was it though as a parent? To be faced with this news for her to come to you and say this is what I'm going to do. This is who I am. Well, my husband I and and my son were all thrilled because I have to tell you. It's a very joyful experience when anybody it doesn't matter who they are, has found themselves and found their authenticity. You know, she had been dealing with a lot of depression and anxiety that was extremely serious to the point of hospitalization. And so when she threw a great program here in the Scrabble area, found that authenticity we were joyful. My husband and I celebrated so It was. It was a pivotal point in our family. Um, and it was one of the happiest days of our life. How about that? Um, if can you go online still and take a look at that interview, Is it still there? The team. Bo. Yeah, you put a King dog..

She said, you won't even think you're in America. Of this district that elected he'll Halama. Now. She is the director of special projects. She was speaking at a press conference calling for this woman to resign immediately. Good luck. She says she has cousins and family members. That were called horse for showing parts of their back their arm in Iraq a country where one day. They're going to be wearing mini skirts. According to this lady, it's truly because of people like Johann, Omar when the government is infiltrated. And it starts this way. Because it's happened in Iraq in it's happening against us. She said Iraq used to be a country where Jews lived freely. Where a Syrian Christians lived freely. This woman is Syrian by the way, we're even Armenians were there. Even moderate Muslims lived there until sharia law took place, and everyone everyone was affected Americans. Do truly understand that this is going to affect you. One of these days soon, if you don't make changes now, she's talking of sharia adding that she knows and she has seen and she has witnessed the early signs of genocide. This lady. Apparently when I got who story this morning, I checked her out as best I could buy everything that's available owner. She's not crackpot. Very brilliant woman. She has to how the house of representatives passed three the vote was three ninety three to zero resolution seventy-five, recognizing the ongoing genocide of Christians and other religious minorities under ISIS. I don't recall this for some reason this was in March of two thousand sixteen a year ago. I mean, excuse me two years ago three years ago. At this time. But now support representatives like you'll have Omar. She cited Omar's request to judge for a lighter sentence a terrorist supporter. I mean, it's good this vote took place three hundred ninety three zero regardless of whether I remember it or not. But she makes a very good point how we can come together just a few years ago and make this point about the the genocide of Christians and other religious minorities under ISIS, but now. There is some support for this person. And we've already heard her anti semitic ways. And now she's making comments about this district. This woman from this Middle Eastern group and talking about how this is like the terrorist capital of the USA. She said we're here because of God. We're here because of God to give you warnings as Americans. We're here to tell you that it's coming here. And it is here, and it will affect you. It will affect everyone. You will see your daughter's get beheaded. She says that she's interviewed hundreds of families of all religions affected in the genocide in Iraq. Who watch family members get executed right in front of them. And that's where the reality it them. And they knew that it was too late and that sharia law had taken full control of that country. And she says she would not stop until Representative Omar resides in the light of her anti semitic, anti semitism with possible ties. She's accused the woman of possible ties to terrorism she says, she's already exhibited sympathy for radicals. She put it out to her experience of being born and raised in the Middle East to support through her own knowledge of what she's seen what she is now saying in this country and through the the words and through the doings of Representative Omar who's now a United States congresswoman. And the lady in question here went onto further decry members of congress supporting Omar. Well, knowing what is happening in Minnesota's fifth district.

I want you to be able to make up your own mind. Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover. I was brought up not to do that. But I think you know, as you get older, you get pretty good at that.
