Fresh update on "republican party" discussed on Native Opinion Podcast an American Indian Perspective

"Absolutely. I know we've just showed a video on the tree degradation around the world. But trees aren't the only organisms that produce oxygen. Grass is produced oxygen. And one of our biggest oxygen producers in the world is phytoplankton. And people may be saying, well, what the heck is phytoplankton? Phytoplankton is plant based plants that are aquatic. Like in your oceans, our oceans are loaded with phytoplankton. And they release an enormous amount of oxygen into the atmosphere. They release actually more than trees and to the atmosphere. So when you cut down the trees, you're also in dangering plant cousins in the aquatic environment. You create cycles that cause acidification of the oceans, it increases pollution when root systems are destroyed because they can't stop and collect things that run into our waterways and destroy phytoplankton. There's a lot that's involved in the cycle of life. On this earth. And we are destroying it at such a fast rate. That we may not be able to reverse the damage. So indigenous folks, we're not responsible for that. We've been trying to tell people, hey, this has got to stop this needs to happen. This is what you can do to help mitigate X, Y, and Z but green and dishonesty rules the day. Correct. So, and in my view, that has to be addressed as strongly as supposedly climate change battles. Oh, sure. In my opinion, first and foremost. The great and dishonesty needs to be addressed first. Yep. You know, they can blow smoke up people's butts all day long telling them, we have a solution. I mentioned in the article. Here's the thing and you guys know that I have disdained for both political parties pretty much at this point. You know what I mean? And here's the thing. If Democrats were so serious about fighting climate change is the way the Biden administration tries to position it, then why did he still approve a number of oil and gas leases? And here, let me throw some ire at the Republican Party who said that wasn't enough. So you have two major political parties in this country that still want to produce oil and gas, but one party is saying that they're very, very worried about climate change. Please. And these are the folks that are responsible for enacting legislation or creating new laws. That I mentioned. And so there's no real, there's no real discussion about, you know, there's no real action rather. In that direction. And we just know this. So it's up to us to just say, we don't care. I'm trying not to be irrationally irresponsible with my statements here. I'm not telling anybody not to obey the laws, but. We all sadly have to take a piece of this and try to solve it. Because of the irresponsibility of those I've already discussed and mentioned. Because they're all guilty, all of them. Past and present. You know, we're not beating the drum of.

Neither one of us are in this cycle really. I mean, we know campaigns and we've helped some others, but for the most part, chip and our experiencing something neither one of us experienced in a long, long time, and that is the ability to just talk about these campaigns without being indirectly involved in them. And I think I know from my perspective, it's been a refreshing. I know talking to you if it has been for you as well. But how did you get into this? It's a great question, Doug. So as you had mentioned, I went to auburn and I was to age myself. I was an auburn in the early to mid 90s. And long story short was a member of the college Republicans at auburn. And we had a state party chairman from an adjacent state, Georgia, come down to speak to us at one of our chapter meetings on, I think it was Tuesday night. Because his daughter was a member of our was a member of our college Republicans group. And that person was rusty Paul, who was the state chairman at the time for the Georgia Republican Party. He since went on to become a state senator. And now he is mayor of Sandy Springs. And I walked up to him after the after he gave a speech and I asked him if he had any internships available. And he said, absolutely call, you know, call me, you know, next week and we'll get you set up. And the reality is the rest is history. I was a political science and public administration major down there and I really didn't know what I wanted to do for a living. And, you know, I'm 49 years old right now, and I still feel like I'm in that position, you know? I mean, as you mentioned, this is my first cycle. Really, since I was a teenager, where I haven't been directly involved in the campaign. And it's been it's been a lot of fun to be able to watch this from the

"Trump rebuked with stinging losses in Georgia's Republican contests by Steve peoples and Jeff Amy Associated Press Atlanta. Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia easily dispatched Donald Trump's handpicked challenger on Tuesday in a Republican primary that demonstrated the limits of the former president and his conspiracy fueled politics in a critical swing state. Kemp will face Democrat Stacey Abrams this fall, in what will be one of the nation's most consequential governors races. The GOP results combined with the loss of the Trump backed candidate for Secretary of State served as a stinging rebuke for the former president in a state he prioritized above almost all others. Angered by Kemp's refusal to go along with his extraordinary effort to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia, Trump personally recruited former senator David perdue to challenge the sitting governor. He also helped clear the primary field and spent more than $3 million on the failed effort. Kemp ultimately emerged as a powerful candidate able to draw prolific fundraising totals that helped him flood Georgia with television and other ads. He tapped into the power of his office to show voters what he could do for them, unveiling a 5 and a half $1 billion 8100 job Hyundai motor plant near Savannah in the final days of the campaign. Even in the middle of a tough primary, conservatives across our state didn't listen to the noise. They didn't get distracted. Kemp told cheering supporters before calling on his party to rally behind his campaign, and defeat produced struck a unifying tone that has become increasingly rare in a Republican Party dominated by Trump's hard line tactics. I want you to know tonight that I am fully supporting Brian Kemp and his run to beat Stacey Abrams, produce said. It's emotional for all of us. We're disappointed. I get that. Let's take a few hours. Lick our wounds at tomorrow morning. You're going to hear me going to work for Brian Kemp to make damn sure that Stacey Abrams is never governor of Georgia. In all, 5 states were voting Tuesday, including Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, and Minnesota. But none had been more consumed than Georgia by Trump and his lie that the 2020 election was stolen. Altogether, Trump failed to replace all four Republican incumbents he targeted in the state, including the governor, attorney general, and Secretary of State. Secretary of State Brad raffensperger, who refused to support the former president's direct calls to have returned the 2020 election, defeated Trump's choice, representative.

It'll help Trump win in 2024. Americans aren't going to forget this. And we've got to rely on the political process. Now, the problem, Dennis, as you know, is that many on our side don't want to rely on the political process. They want more. They want a pound of flesh. They want accountability. And I get it. I don't blame them. We must be the party that relies on the political process.

This idea that dinesh d'souza is masterfully blasted out of the water as well that the GOP flipped and the racism thing in America just magically changed overnight. Could you unpack just how the internal logic of the sovereign strategy makes no sense. It makes no sense whatsoever. And the reason why I exploded on the gentleman and I went over into apologize later because I did explode. It's frustrating. And it's also frustrating that our party won't do anything about it. It won't push back on this idea. Thank God for doing extra shoes and prager U and these groups that are out pushing back on this stuff and writing these wrongs, but the idea that the south became the Republican party and they became more they became less racist or more racist as it became more Republican is just ridiculous. I mean, if you think about it logically, which doesn't happen a lot on that side. As the Republicans who were dominating the north moved into the south, the south would have become less racist, but that's not what happened. It's the exact opposite. And so you have to sit there and go, wait a second, this doesn't make any sense.

RINOS vs MAGA: A Difference of Substance or Style?

"One of the things I notice on social media is there's a lot of kind of score machine going on between people who see themselves as sort of the maga types versus the Republican establishment. Now, when I look at the actual issues, it doesn't seem like there's a radical difference of position. In other words, even people who call themselves American nationalists, it's kind of like if I were to say, you know, my family comes first, it doesn't mean I don't care about my neighbors, so I don't care about my community. There's no reason why one can combine America first with a kind of prudent internationalism, but here's my point. Is this a difference of substance or is this a difference of style? Obviously it's important to have a united Republican Party. How do we heal these kind of temperamental breaches within the party? Yeah, and a lot of this is the left who just still hates Donald Trump. And anything related to Donald Trump, they want to demonize. They want to cancel. You've seen it personally. I've seen it. The bottom line is people love those policies that we're working under president Trump. And, you know, you can call it Magna. You can call it America first. But some people are trying to try to spin it into something. It's not. It was not isolationism. And I think that's where a lot of the left tries to go. And I'll give you an example. Look at Europe. You've got Ukraine over there fighting against Russia. President Trump had a strong foreign policy where the bad guys around the world who have always been there. The bad guys of the world did not try to test Donald Trump. They knew this isn't a guy. You might not know what he's going to do, but you didn't want to find

"Guys, I'm really delighted to welcome to the podcast, the one and only Marjorie Taylor Greene. Hey, it's great to see you again. It was so wonderful to see you at Mar-a-Lago for the movie premiere and I hope you had a great time. I did. It was so nice to see you and Debbie and you and your entire team dinesh. You guys did an amazing job with the movie 2000 mules. I was blown away when I watched it a truly, truly exposed the voter fraud that happened with absentee ballots and all the trafficking and the mules in the 2020 election. So thank you so much for all your hard work on that and true the vote. And I really hope everyone watches that movie. Well, we're certainly going to try to make that happen. Let's pivot to what's going on in the world today. There's a huge appropriation of money. Was it 40 of what was the amount? Billion. 40 billion. $40 billion for Ukraine at a time when the country is going through all kinds of issues. You emphatically voted no. Talk a little bit about what was the mood in the GOP about this because it seems like a fair number of Republicans voted. Yes. Talk about the impact of what's going on there. Well, I think this exposes more of the problems than the Republican Party. They still haven't figured out who they need to be. And the Republican Party needs to be America first. And that showed you that vote yesterday showed you that we still have Republicans in our conference that are just ingrained in the ways of Washington where they will just vote defense send money to more to fund more wars or regime change, really money laundering through nonprofits and NGOs in Ukraine. Now, of course, we're all upset for the Ukrainian people. We're upset for any people in any country that are suffering, but this is America last, $40 billion sent to Ukraine, funding all kinds of things we should not be funding. Like the CIA, there's an undescribed amount of funds and Bill that goes to the CIA. It also funds allowing anyone that habitually lived in Ukraine. But that doesn't give you a good description of what that means so that basically could be someone that travels goes into Ukraine, maybe doesn't even stay there that long claims they live there.

Monthly Rents Skyrocket Amid Record Inflation

"Hey everybody, Tyler Charlie Kirk show. What are the new results out of Ohio mean for the midterms? Our Democrats favored to win anything at all, and also a new announcement from turning point, pack, TP pack dot com that is TP PAC dot com, or you guys can contribute some grassroots donations to help America first candidates across the country that's TP PAC dot com. We talk with Tyler Boyer about that and the need to reclaim the America first mantle from the ground up. Email me your thoughts is always freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com, get involved with turning point USA at TP USA dot com or email me your thoughts is always freedom at Charlie Kirk dot 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 Andrew and Todd dot com. I want to lead with this one thing. I have a friend of mine who's a wonderful American from Dallas, whose in real estate, probably one of the top private owners of apartment buildings in the country. And he just said, hey, Charlie, I want you to see these rent inflation crazy numbers. I'm not going to say his name just to, you know, for obvious reasons. But so this is the last 30 movements, okay? So Phoenix, for example, for the last 30, the average prior rent used to be 1325 a month for his and he owns apartment buildings all over Phoenix. Now it's 1693 a month. That means that rent has gone up 27.8% on average in Phoenix. It is last 30 movements. Austin, 23%, San Antonio 21%. Dallas Fort Worth, 18%. North Carolina, 16% Houston 15%. The real inflation rate, I said this the other day, and someone laughed at me, but when they laugh at us, that's how you know we're probably right. I said the real inflation rate is 35%. I said it's right near there. For working people, that's about where it is. If you count gas, you count food, you can't travel. You count all that other stuff. So Andrew and I were talking in the break, he says, I don't know, I don't know, have we peaked too early, Andrew said of Republicans, are we going to be able to sustain this the November? I said, look at these rent numbers. You're trying to tell me people are going to keep the people in charge over this. I don't know, but someone who does know is Richard barris, from the people's pundit, and he's wearing a tie just to make me look bad. Big data polls, Richard barris, Richard. Welcome back to the program. Hey, thanks for having me back. I appreciate it. So a lot to unpack here. Let's start with kind of what happened in Ohio. What does that message send? What is your polling show? How big of a deal is what just happened in Ohio? You know, it's a big deal, Charlie, for the future of the party. The direction of the party, you know, the Trump endorsed candidates outside of JD Vance even did great. There was the first congressional district in Indiana. She won, so, you know, I mean, oh, and by the way, Ohio 9. So that was a race the media definitely was watching and trying to take out, you know, take down the Trump endorsed candidate. He did pull it off and he did incredible in an outside of Toledo, which is where a lot of people thought that Gaborone would do better. You know, so in the end, if you look at where van specifically got his support from, the reason I think a lot of these polls messed up outside of Vance's 100% correct. Outside of Remington, which was pulling for another campaign, they were just wrong. Some of the other public polls didn't really catch Vance's full support because when a pollster does a likely voter model, I suspected this was happening and it did. Those new Trump accounts, they're not really Republicans, Ohio has a lot of them. And they'll tell you, I'm going to vote. I'm likely to vote or I'm certain to vote. But then the pollster will go back and look at vote history and in a primary. If they're not a two out of four voter, meaning they voted in at least two and the last four primaries, they'll get screened out. And because these voters are newly Republican and close primary, they didn't have much vote history and you could see it all over. Mahoning, Youngstown, trumbull, the election day and wood in the northwest, just south of Toledo. That was Trump vote. That is Trump vote. And then Vance did excellent, obviously. In Cleveland, Hamilton county and the suburbs around it. So at the end of the day, it sent a very clear message. The president saw a very strong grip on the Republican Party without a doubt.

"Lost so badly Joe Biden and completely humiliated because in my family like losing is pretty much the worst thing you could do and being a loser is the worst thing you can be I said you would never put himself in that position again to suffer such an egregious narcissistic injury However what we saw over time was the Republican Party starting to either to back his big lie or remain silent in the face of it and allow him to perpetuate his out of force being that the 2020 election was illegitimate and it was stolen from him because he of course one none of that is true And then January 6th happened and as we've seen over time the Republican Party has also backed him and not put up a fight and not they're not supporting the January 6 committee et cetera so I think that eliminates one obstacle to his running The other issue is that the Republican Party is also making it easier for him to run and not lose In other words as you know in every single state Republican legislatures are trying to push through voter suppression bills So if they can manage to rig the system even more in their favor And obviously the system is very rigged towards Republicans.

"I think that that shows that, you know, there is room for a center lane in politics, even in places in New York City where people might not expect to find them. And parts of queens, there are pockets of the borough that still like moderate Democrats and moderate Republicans in this district happens to be one of them. Yeah, and we've obviously seen a lot of that conversation playing out throughout this 2021 election cycle, not of course in the mayoral race where it was so much of the conversation, the democratic primary about the left wing versus more of the moderate candidates, but also in a variety of other races down to the local level. And we'll get to the race to replace you in just a second. In terms of your politics, you know, a few months back, I interviewed Joe loda, the 2013 Republican nominee for mayor, who has left the party, registered as a Democrat. He couldn't stay in the party of Trump and the party that has so sort of fervently backed Donald Trump and so he left the party or he had the way he says that the party left him. I'm wondering how you're feeling right now is someone who hasn't supported Donald Trump watching what's happened with the Republican Party, especially just here in New York and how you are thinking about the future of the Republican Party here and how moderate Republicans could potentially sort of claw their way back into some more government power. If you think that's possible and how you're thinking about it as you're looking at the end of your city council tenure. Well, let me just say this. In order for our democracy to thrive, I do believe fundamentally that we need a thriving and competitive two party system. It does not serve government or the people well, when we have one party controlling every single branch of government at every single level and where there is no debate or disagreement on issues and people basically operate in a monolith. So I do believe that for the sake of our democracy as a whole, you know, just taking a broader step back, we do need the Republicans and the Democrats fighting with each other, keeping each other honest, keeping each other in check. And debating the issues that people care about. You know, no one party has a monopoly on good ideas. And there are lots of ideas that were adopted from the Republican Party and also from the Democratic Party similarly when we had a Republican governor a mayor. So that being said, you know, it is a very tough time. I think for Republicans in general, Donald Trump was defeated and the presidential election. And Republicans have lost a lot of ground. This particularly in the northeast and certain places. But I do think that politics is a pendulum that swings to the left. It's sometimes not in New York, but in other places it might swing to the right. But it always does come back to the center. Most New Yorkers, most Americans, I would argue are in that center lane. Do consider themselves, you know, middle of the road, common sense people who just want to go about their lives support their families, follow the rules and the laws of the land and create a better life for themselves and for their families..

"Was the so-called zena law against daltry that had been passed in the summer of. Oh four that led to a little mini crisis with the eu. There were a couple of cases in the european court of human rights that they lost having to do with the headscarf ban that elicited reactions. There were some worrying anomalies. I was seeing even before that but after that it became increasingly clear to me that the eu accession process for oregon was something that he had instrumentalise to advance his own political interests. You don't hear for instance air to one saying today. Well screw the copenhagen criteria. We're gonna move the cri- criteria doesn't say that anymore and he has no interest in it. Where do you think that leaves the country now. I mean it seems to me. And visiting angels i think beyond that at this point one is probably less popular than he was Early two thousands but he may be significantly less popular than he was the last few years but that he also gained such complete control over the media in the country. Such far-reaching control not completed fiery koto electoral system. But it's also hard to imagine him being pushed out of office sutton fair but also in free elections. What does it tell us about the future of regimes now essentially just a dictator. Who's going to stay in power like until the end of his life. revolutionary movement or. What's the prospect of turkey and about four time populace regimes that have been consolidated in before town nature to this extent so turkey suffer very badly from very poor quality of its domestic political opposition. The j. pay the people's republican party nominally. The hardy of outta turk. The kemalist party is supposed to be social democratic party. But it's a highly nationalist party the age. P the nationalist party that aired on has allied himself with and i think the best description of the regime is this nationalist regime. That's really what it's become jenny. White who has a very good scholar of turkey friend and she's now the university of uppsala. She's taught being used for many years now in sweden university of uppsala coined that phrase muslim nationalist regime. And i think that's right so the opposition to air to one has been divided and quite feckless but as you say he's lost ground with the public and turkey is on the cusp by believe of a very serious economic crisis a debt crisis domestically and a balance of payment crisis. Internationally they right now. I think are negative. Fifty billion in foreign reserves and after bernie through something like hundred twenty five million this summer under the economic guidance of air john son-in-law and putative successor and therein lies the problem for airline because of the corruption that he and his family i think of engaged in. I think he's got the same problem. Putin does right and a lot of these electoral authoritarians because these are all kind of electoral authoritarian regimes. I can't turn power over to anybody who's not either a blood relative or crony. Who will guarantee that. I'm taking care of in the way that putin himself did for some members of the yeltsin family after they turn things over to him in december of nineteen ninety nine. And that's i think the problem for airline and so the system it's become more and more illiberal and more and more undemocratic. I mean you now see of violent attacks against opposition leaders mrs merrill. Who is the head of the so-called eve party good party who is a splinter group from the nationalist party. She's a former interior minister. She's actually fairly popular figure. She just went to the black sea coast and was attacked by a mob as have other. Opposition leaders in turkey has been clearly instigated by the regime. You were talking about free and fair. Elections elections in turkey have never been completely fair because the media has been so beholden to the state that whoever was in government at a huge advantage with media traditionally. But they'd always been you know free in the sense that there didn't seem to be a lot of chicanery at the ballot box. That's changed over the last half a decade or so certainly in the two thousand seventeen constitutional referendum that created this presidential system. That's made air to one extremely powerful as president. There's lots of indication that the vote was fiddled to get over the fifty percent approval mark including in the southeast lot of irregularities in the mayoral races in istanbul and then fact the assemble wanted to be rerun and of course the imola the current mayor who is potentially maybe a successor to earn one eventually seems to be quite successful as mayor so far which is going to anyone in airlines doing everything. It can to make art for a memo to be successful. I think it's gonna be a long road ho to get him out of office unless natural causes somehow takes him and he's i think now casting about. He cashiered feared his son-in-law in part because there was so much uproar over the loss of foreign exchange reserves to support the lira foolishly that he resigned. I think that was sort of to spare him so they can bring him back. Because i can't imagine airline would find any other successor. He could live with visit part of the problem as saying resumes. You need somebody who's loyalty. You can be sure you said earlier conversation that you sure to pass amidst and the long-term optimists i think we've spent a lot of time covering the reasons for short term pessimism leaves us with some of the reasons why you retain your long-term optimism well about the united states of america retained long-term optimism because we are very resilient society that's been through enormous upheavals in the past and always managed to come out veteran stronger whether it was the civil war the eighteen sixties or the great depression or the aftermath of the vietnam war. We've always managed to come out of terrible nominates in our history and gone on to succeed in do many good things. So i'm counting on that resilience I think as a free society we remain one of the most innovative societies in the world in the ones that's most open to innovation that's put at the forefront of technology. I do think we have a challenge now from china because of china's effort so-called civil-military fusion to try and harness future technologies particular for military purposes. Like a i in quantum computing. And things like that putting enormous investments into this. I think we may have to rethink some of our traditional more hands off approach is i think they may have to contemplate some kind of industrial policy. That in the past. I personally would have probably opposed but i'm still fairly bullish on us. You know long term but we have you some pretty serious challenges so is similar reasons to be a long-term optimus state of democracy in the world. I'm a long-term oke missed about democracy in the world. Because.

"Think we've got to be much stronger on this than we have been. You know biden has a meeting coming up on the margins of the nato summit which will be before the putin summit with Type the president of turkey. And i hope he raises several cases of human rights issues. Certainly osman coppola but also selahattin demer tosh the head of the kurdish party. Adp in turkey. I that those will be at the forefront of the discussion with air on whatever other issues they need to discuss in there. Obviously several that i think ought to be at the forefront. I don't think it's by accident as i might have said in an earlier part my career. When always soviet policies that the nato meeting on wednesday that issued a statement about lukashenko it was the turkish government that tried to water down the statement. And we don't know why. The turkish government did that but my supposition would be that aired himself This is an interesting precedent. I might be able to use that there a lot of flights that. Go over turkish airspace. And so this is one reason why i. We really have to try and take stronger action at. It's one of those places where i've been mocked by some people carrying about nunes and democratic norms and the way in which the ridicules sometimes goes Really cab on the norm of how you hold your focus naive democratic norms similar bullpen. Of just good manners When justice at stake who casts about good manners. But i think that's media misunderstanding of the nature venetian importance norms in but democrats round but also he international realm. I mean making sure it'd be norm that you don't commit piracy is maintained really guarantees that it can be on a plane without warring Either you haven't dissident happens to be a distant on board. You suddenly falls down by a military jet to land in some other location business. Key example of why the maintenance of norms is not you know. please don't put the full. Can your right hand knife. Your left hand. It is the maintenance of our ability to cooperate internationally domestically in ridicule ways. You mentioned talking adeline ambassador kentucky relatively early in add-ons rule. I'm intrigued by how you see the trajectory of the adwan regime in the early two thousands when you ambassador bad though is a very lively debate about whether to see adeane as democratizing as somebody who is taking on some of the ways in which tokyo's visine wasn't in fact exclusionary to devout muslims some ways in which it was sort of an illiberal secularist regime and the people who saw him as a danger ibis before town or how. How'd you see sort of twenty trajectory of turkey. And what can we by re examining those debates. When i arrived ambassador in two thousand. Three the occupa- the justice and development party had been in office for about a year. And i happen to participate in president bush's meeting in december of two thousand two with air on when he was not yet prime minister he was still under a political band at that point and only later the ban was lifted. He was elected to parliament and became prime minister but in that meeting he made a point of telling president bush that he was a islamic democrat and in essence depicted himself as a muslim equivalent of a european christian democrat and essentially said you know i wanna create space in turkey for those pious muslims. Who has sort of as you said been somewhat excluded kemalists dispensation and as you can imagine in a period of time when we were already at war in afghanistan about to go to war in iraq and dealing with the entire panoply of jihadist terrorist adversaries and understanding that the war on terror as we called it in those days was more than a military enterprise. It really was about a debate. Inside islam about islam's accommodation to modernity and that we needed people like what i was describing in order to in the long run prevail against these salafi jihadist influences sloman which are quite strong. It was a convincing sales very sales pitch end. Of course there was motivated bias on the part of all of us right. This was like manna from heaven. You're the ones we've been looking for. Thank god you're here. The a p looked like moderate muslims from central casting for those who were looking for people to take up that part of the debate in the muslim world. And i would say for the first year or so of my tenure up until december of two thousand four which was when the european council formerly agreed to reopen the accession process for turkey to the european union and to begin the process of negotiating the various chapters of twenty nine or something of the aki communitaire. That would allow turkey ultimately someday. Everyone knew it was gonna be a long term process to accede to the european union. And erdo wanna knows days was extremely good about saying you know the eu as we must meet the copenhagen criteria. But we're to rename them. The entre criteria because even if there weren't at european union you know we'd want to be doing these things ourselves. It actually took an enormous effort at that december brussels summit to get iran to take. Yes for an answer to my surprise. I mean i was in touch with the then director. General of the turkish foreign ministry though senior civil servant who was in air doan sweet. I was on a cell phone with him constantly might british counterpart whom you may know. Peter west mccaw. Who was later ambassador here in. The united states was in brussels with tony blair in air. John sweet jock. Chirac was in the suite trying to sweet talk air. John was gerhard schroeder who was then chancellor and the point is that add-on actually didn't want the accession process to be reopened to what was the so. It's very interesting first of all. This has been a big ongoing. us interest. I think through eleven presidential administrations going back to nineteen sixty three when turkey. I applied for membership in the then european economic community. And so to me. This was one of the most important elements of our mission in turkey. Which is why. I was working on this issue. Mean we're not members of the eu all week to do is use our influence with the eu. And then try use our influence with the turks to take yes for an answer air. John was offended by some of the conditionality that was attached to the invitation for so he said and when he ultimately agreed but came back to turkey in december of four and gave the sour speech. I mean this should have been in my view. An occasion for turkish governments for forty years have been trying to accomplish this. I finally achieved it. This is a great day for turkey goes on and on and on instead it was all about. They think they're gonna make us do this with the kurds. And make up with the armenians. And that we're gonna live with these limitations on labor mobility. That was one of the things that was in there. That really galled him. It was a very very sour speech and from me. Personally i date a lot of what's happened since to that stage but you feel that. This was a turning point. That was science that have been missed. The on there were already some earlier signs..

"Flare. the is and it's very hard to recognize the perspective of somebody who disdains him. But that's both a sense of humor. A kind of alaska atmosphere and oddly joyous nece in his public persona is of bitterness and anger as well but but the is a sense of sort of the fund the joy of challenging the structures that be having one of the things that's missing and his imitators bat. it's sort of all of the nastiness without the sort of joy that he gives his supporters even as he ripe horrifies everybody else his rallies to me you're like you know professional wrestling event and it's not an accident because he comes from that kind of world of entertainment and has participated in a lot of world wrestling events. And so he's the perfect. He'll who fans still adore and that's halt trope in american professional wrestling and another podcast earlier. This year. I said you know there's no amount of pork rinds. That are gonna turn ted cruz. You know who went to princeton and harvard or josh foley who went to stanford and yale into authentic populace they themselves are elitists who are masquerading as populace. So i do think it makes a difference whether trump actually runs again in right. Now it's looking to me like he will run and so a lot will depend on legal system. Does he get indicted. How tied up in litigation as he in defending both criminal and civil cases and you know does that cause him to trim sale somewhat or not but if he runs you know the polling suggests he'll be formidable he'll win the nation wide you think about this prospects in general election and does bad depend on his sons in his appeal or does that depend in part on. The food is opponent with joe biden. Oh somebody else. And how many successes democrats have shown themselves will help me. Mistakes ago to make the news. Yeah what my fear is. Is that by twenty four There might be about inflation that could be very damaging president biden's prospects reelection or cameras man. I think effectively. it's either gonna be biden's harris. I don't think there's much chance at another democrat would emerge. If biden doesn't mind. It would be incredibly hot for anybody to win a primary election against come in the house. I agree and so. I've been having this debate with my son. Actually who's twenty seven and using i. It doesn't matter. And i said no. You only think that because you've never actually lived through a period of inflation and we've had very low inflation in the united states for forty years and it can be extremely corrosive. I think would be very corrosive that i would be very concerned about. Trump's chances right now. His polling nationally doesn't look very good minutes being like sixty six percent saying they don't want him to run again nationally not republicans obviously but a lot can change and when you're governing. You're alienating voters that's just the nature of the beast so my concern is it's not even whether trump could win the popular vote. I think he would almost certainly lose it but the question is by how much in in what states i mean that's one thing we've seen. Republicans ought to be very concerned by the fact that they haven't won the popular vote for president since nineteen eighty eight saved once in two thousand four when george w bush was reelected and then it was still pretty close. Think he went by three million votes. That's remarkable is somehow hadn't folded on the fact that they haven't won the popular would since nineteen eighty. Eight will be exception of two thousand four. That's remarkable about politics. I want to shift a little bit to some of the stakes for democracy. The united states around the world one thing. I'm still struggling to make sense of this. How much damage. Donald trump did ultimately do to democracy around the world. I think his actions were horrifying. The fact that he was clearly on the side of overtime popular psychic all bond in hungary is very close to render promoting india was damaging the certain circumstantial evidence bet democracy has been impacted by now the deepest democratic recession. Twenty twenty was worse than be as before. But i guess how much at this point doesn't matter who. The president of the united states is full. The fate of democracy around the world and how different would was four or five years have looked in countries like hungary like india or for that matter in turkey. We will embassador in the past. If we'd ended up with president clinton in two thousand sixteen so interesting counterfactual. I've not quite sure whether it would or wouldn't have been very different. I mean i think one thing would have been different. Which is there would have been at least somewhat. More of an emphasis on both uman rights violations in places will certainly like turkey but also more support in general for the rule of law and for institutions like central european university. A place like hungary which played an important role not just in hungary but in central europe more. Broadly is i think there would have been certainly some differences whether those differences would have only been marginal or whether they would have amounted to something that changed the trajectory of the democratic recession. As you were saying. I think is a much harder question to answer because i think the democratic recession is rooted in a lot of structural causes that it's not very easy for one president to reverse or change. I be interested in your reaction but to me this global democratic recession. There's some things that you and some of your co-authors of pointed to with regard to the general decline in appreciation globally of the importance of things like free speech and other formal elements of democracy. I'm not quite sure why that is. It may be the success of democracy which then gets taken for granted. I haven't been able to figure out how slain that. But i think there are other factors that run a little bit deeper. There are the unequal distribution of economic gains from globalization which is certainly occurred here in the united states but also in various other societies. It has fueled in some sense some understandable economic resentments. Although i think the economic resentments have not been the real driver of this. It's been more. I think the cultural elements here which have been brought to the fore by things like greater global immigration some of which has been brought about by in the eu different institutional changes were made to facilitate the at but also because of conflicts around the world and climate change which driven waves of immigration from sub saharan africa but also from conflict regions in the middle east from afghanistan all the.

"Of president trump's speech at cpac over the weekend he is still the leader of the republican party. And that's not changing until he decides that he's done and so i think what you what you hear. Here are the themes central to the most active and influential portion of the republican party. The democrats know their policies on crime are so unpopular so radical so crazy. They are now trying to pretend they never lead defend the police movement in the first place this information we never set the fund. The place you know who did it. The republicans that that's what they do. It's called disinformation about russia. Trump had to do with russia. He loves russia. He loves padi loves. Everybody turned out to be the democrats right after two years. They figured g and after a while people actually believe this stuff but now they're saying defunding the police we didn't say it was the republicans called this. You have to be wise to. It's very simple. If you support defunding. The police vote for the radical left. Democrats and you see what's happening to the cities where they defended. The police is never been anything like it. If you want more police and more cops on the streets vote for america first republicans or let's put it very simply vote for maga- make america. Great again mega. Mega mega mega. The.

"We discussed a schism inside the Republican Party before. But what we're seeing inside the Republican Party today specifically inside the House Freedom Caucus which is the center of the Tea Party Movement. Today is that one of the CO founders of the tea party movement. Justin Amash came out against Donald Trump and in favor of you know upholding the constitution the other members as you just said or his top defenders so people are asking. Why isn't there schism inside the Republican Party? Today I'm asking you guys. Why do you think that is the big lesson? There is that what happened to one of the other real tea party guys Eric Cantor Right. Who got primaried from the right? Which seemed impossible. If you told me that in two thousand ten they're kanter was going to get primary from the right and lose. I would've been stunned and yet it showed When he did and he did because he was just a slight bit of between him and the Republican Orthodoxy on immigration and that was enough of a fatal blow but he was suddenly Rhino Republican in name. Only that call them from the right and so they're all terrified of that so amash Really show but he put his principles above his party And then left the party as a result of that right. He realized there wasn't a place for him there. I think we we had hoped that Other people might see the same sort of could admit principal over loyalty to the president. That's been cleared but no one else is going to join him on that. I mean we saw the impeachment hearings will heard who's also retiring. I mean evil thought would have the freedom to kind of speak up and inactivates conscious has just fallen in line with the party too. So they're very clearly committed to the president and of tied their fortunes to his and part of it. Is You have this? Republican Party is depending on a much narrower coalition. Then back in the Reagan years. I mean when Reagan was president. The idea was to build a pretty broad coalition that was the equivalent of the new deal coalition in the thirties and George W Bush. He had the same vision. I mean he was very intent on winning the vote of immigrants as a way to broad coalition now. The Republican Party isn't really thinking that way it says we have a narrower part of the electorate shrinking kind of rural areas will be the heart of our coalition but to preserve that we need absolute total loyalty and the mechanisms of the party. Machine are focused on that. Because you can't afford to lose any vote if you have a very narrow part of the electorate and I think that dynamic explains a lot of of what happens There is a rational element of not a principal necessarily rational album. And how they think of it and I think you need to understand the narrowness of of the Republican appeal right now to also understand why they are totally loyal at this point and not willing to defect other than the Ammash Revolution of one so something. Let's stray outside lines of the book completely here for second a recent. Abc Poll said that seventy percents of Americans believe it's wrong for president to seek assistance from a foreign leader to investigate a political domestic political opponent. But that same poll found roughly fifty one percent believed that the president should be impeached and removed a seventy percent that means that some percentage of Republicans and certainly high percentage of independence believe that the outlines of what have been presented a wrong. Why do you believe that there is this? Nineteen percent gap. And what do you think needs to be done to persuade these people? And close the gap. That's a great question. I think the gap is easy to explain given you if you watch the way in which coverage has been unfolding on conservative media. It's an alternate universe. I mean you know if you were getting information about this from Sean Hannity Laura Ingraham or even from the regular Fox News programming. You're getting a very different perspective on this and I think you are if you're watching CNN or NPR PBS or C. Span. Right and so. That's part of it and so that might be the that would be the disconnect. Yes in theory that would be wrong but clearly. That's not what this president did from the coverage. I followed on say Fox that accounts for that difference. How to win those people over? I'm not sure they're winnable. I think there's there's a real hardening of the partisan lines here and I don't know if you're going to get everyone on board that bare majority might be as strong as as against. We have to remember when when the house was closing in on Nixon right when it voted for articles of impeachment fifty eight percent. If I'm remembering this right of the public approved it at that time right and that was enough and so if right now it's fifty one fifty two that might be against but a bare majority might be all the public support that we see for this but that might be enough. I think one other small thing not small thing but other big thing that's going on and it's related to the book is is people of this era have lived through really intense partisanship meaning. They have seen how extreme partisanship could go and how how broken our politics can be and my suspicion would be. They're probably some Non Fox viewers who are also just worried about the logic of impeachment becoming normalized even if justified even if they agree. This is the case where you do it. There's probably some people who are worried. All of a sudden this becomes kind of an ongoing element of partisan politics. So so it's not a totally surprise that people who've lived through this faultlines era are just worried about where this might go.

"For the Republican Party of Texas at their state convention they have yet again made the decision to bar the log cabin Republicans L. G. B. T. right leaning folks and and many of them staunchly in favor of the president and certainly loyal Republicans they are not allowed to participate they are not allowed specifically to be represented in any formal way including having a booth at the Republican state convention in Texas I saw Dan Crenshaw the congressman from the Houston area had written a letter in support of the log cabins and I just wonder in in twenty twenty with public opinion shifting and many many Republicans now in favor for example of same sex marriage including seemingly the president is it time for the Texas Republican Party to be a little bit more inclusive especially if people are ideological allies what do you make of that issue well you know what politics is or is it and the privilege of governing is a is a matter of arithmetic and you have to get more supporters than your opponents do you have to win elections in order to have the privilege of governing so if we want conservative policies we want the right kind of policies I don't think we auto will shut the door to anyone who is willing to work with us in order to accomplish goals to those goals we can all have our own private differences and I know many of those were very firmly held and a matter of either from conviction but I've I did think hopefully we would view politics as a as an arena in which we want to we want to do we want to do the math in a way that makes more friends and supporters in acts the sort of policy we want if you're if you're a conservative there is nothing probably more important than the federal judiciary because of the the role of the judiciary place and so I would say anybody who agrees with me that we need a conservative judiciary I'm going to consider that to be an ally and I think it's we should not exclude those people who are like minded on so many things because of some areas which were there may be due to differences I agree senator John Cornyn Republican of Texas we appreciate your time on an extremely busy and significant Newsday center thank you very much thanks guys we'll take a break we'll be right back on the guy Benson show with the home stretch coming up show.

"Was it a way to get things done to where it's like you're part of the party that's in charge. But I would also caution people to recognize that that supermajority consisted of very split group of both moderate Republicans and conservative Republicans. And if you look at bills that have been passed like Medicaid expansion. You will see the majority vote was a coalition of moderate, Republicans and Democrats. So we really. Had three parties we have three parties the three parties are the democrat moderate Republicans conservative Republicans, which falls under one umbrella of Republicans. But for instance, I've been a Republican nine years and never received a dime from the Republican party, and they've always sought to find people to run against me because they didn't want my kind of republicanism. They wanted the conservative kind, and I am far from alone in the state, and we as moderate Republicans would fund raise together. Knepper it from the rest of the party. So we really have three functioning essentially groups. Yeah, I wanna talk to you little bit about that. Because when I look at your state it voted for Trump. I'd like twenty points big margin. And in some ways, I feel like Kansas is one of those places where the sort of modern definition of republicanism got its start. You have Senator Brownback who is sent to Washington as part of the Gingrich revolution. And he was until recently the governor there, so you mentioned how you weren't able to raise money with the local Republican party. I one I wonder if you can talk a little bit about how the definition of republicanism has changed in Kansas over the last couple of decades. I think you can look directly at the party platform to see that. There was a tremendous influence over time from the cans for life organization. He also have the influence of the coke brothers. Who Charles coke ran for president under the libertarian banner and failed and said, what can I do to get what I want done and realized if he partnered with the religious right per se and the antiabortion movement, and and the likes of that in places like Kansas, he could get his tax policies passed by those people, and he was successful. If you look at Kansas, but that's changing as the people have recognized that was maybe in coke brothers best interest, but not their best interest. You what of these policies done to the state? Well, it has devastated. The infrastructure of our state starting with actual government. The ability for government to function properly there just aren't enough people. To do the jobs that need to be done on things like foster care and child welfare and mental health and care of the elderly and.

"Can we just start out? Give me your name and your title. So we get that. Right. Barbara bowl Senator district seven Kansas. Let me just say I didn't mean to make my very first question. Barbara bully, a Gotcha. And what party are you? I am a Democratic Party. Now, a love that not a democrat a Democratic Party. Now is like she's still getting used to saying age after a birthday does it feel weird to say that it is different doesn't just roll off the tongue because I've said I was a moderate Republican my entire life. But it feels good feels good. Yes. She sang it feels good because being a Republican has felt really really bad for some time. Now, the whole party mafia thing we were talking about earlier Barbara bully was on the crap end that situation for. For years. She found herself disagreeing with conservatives in our party on school funding and Medicaid expansion. And when she endorsed a couple of Democrats for state office Republicans actually bounced her from a key Senate committee, and you know, things just kept going downhill in our relationships, and it became clear that the best way for me to represent my people was to change parties. Was it emotional very because I care so much about getting things done for the people. I'm disappointed that is a very mild statement of saying I'm disappointed in the Republican leadership. Not only in my state, but in this country for what I see as a moving from what I thought the party represented in stood for into a place that is very much further to the right and not necessarily listening to the people and a perfect example of that is the last few years. Where Kansas the legislature passed Medicaid expansion, and our Republican governor vetoed that very Bill and yet the people and the, and you know, now, you see the results of our gubernatorial election electing democrat who one of her primary campaign statements is I will be supporting Medicaid expansion. And that's what the people want and need in our state after you made your nouncement other legislators started coming out of woodwork and switching parties to did you expect that I did not expect that I honestly, I know those people were struggling as I was we've had discussions over years of time about how we just feel the party left us, and I would suspect it took at least one to make the first move. That would have happened to be me. But I know that each one of those. Women feel very strongly that they need to be in public service to serve the people. And when the party's not representing the values of their constituency and is blocking or getting in the way of them serving. Well, they realized it was time to change as well. This is gonna sound a little bit harsh. But when I looked at your record, I was just like were you ever Republican in the first place? You know, people have asked that question, and my answer is yes, I grew up in the value system that government is best closest to the people local control. And certainly that we don't want too much government. But that being said the Republican party that I've been a part of in Kansas not voting with but apart of has stripped local control on multiple issues in the state and was doing things like borrowing money, the whole fiscal conservancy notion of a Republican platform was gone when they were borrowing money to pay the bills that that just doesn't fit with what I thought republicanism is. So to say that I was not well, there are other issues that have volved over time. None are more social issues. I thought Republicans were people who supported liberty freedom and Justice. And when you start excluding certain groups from protections that doesn't represent that value system. Either yet, I mean, Kansas Republicans of had a supermajority right in the legislature. So it was it kind of recently. Yes. Yeah..

"The. When did you move to Kansas two thousand thirteen though I've watched Kansas for very long time actually Patrick Miller teaches political science at the university of Kansas, so longtime observer actually never thought I would end up here. But I did and he came here because he was interested in political parties. What makes a democrat a democrat or Republican Republican turns out Kansas was kind of a great place to do this work. You know, I I would say that when I came here. I already had a background in the politics of stay, and it was very interesting to to actually see a close up. A small state so just by virtue of being political scientist who tweets I end up like having conversations with or coffees with actual elected officials. You want on talk and from all over the political spectrum just want to talk politics. For years. Republicans ruled this state they had to try factor control of both legislative bodies and a Republican governor over those coffees. Patrick would hear stories about how party control was gradually getting more rigid squeezing out moderate voices. What one of the Republicans who don't want to speak for all women, but she'll tell you about going into party of ants. Whether it's local party, or you know, walking into a caucus meeting in the legislature of your colleagues in me mood being called names being history by people who are supposed to be in your party in your allies. Another one of those moderate Republicans a woman has talked pretty openly. I think on social media about stealing threatened by her colleagues Republican colleagues who perhaps have singled her out as a woman, maybe seeing her as weaker, and you know. Same things to her pointing out. How will they're carrying a gun which they do in the Kansas legislature is totally irrelevant comment. Some other conversation hold it will doing legislative work another legislator said to her. I'm carrying a gun. Yeah. Care like said it like an joking kind of way. But that's totally irrelevant comment to the conversation. That's being had even against your painting. This picture of a political party that operates more like the mafia? Politics is like that. And a lot of places. Yeah. But a few weeks back came the first signs that something might change. I a democrat was elected governor. And then two more Kansas lawmakers, leaving the Republican party to become democrat. I am not a Trump Republican not a crisco Bach Republican when Kansas Republican leaders announced they want to scrap the new school funding plan Clayton decided to leave the GOP as such.

"republican party" Discussed on What Next | Daily News and Analysis

"The. When did you move to Kansas two thousand thirteen though I've watched Kansas for very long time actually Patrick Miller teaches political science at the university of Kansas, so longtime observer actually never thought I would end up here. But I did and he came here because he was interested in political parties. What makes a democrat a democrat or Republican Republican turns out Kansas was kind of a great place to do this work. You know, I I would say that when I came here. I already had a background in the politics of stay, and it was very interesting to to actually see a close up. A small state so just by virtue of being political scientist who tweets I end up like having conversations with or coffees with actual elected officials. You want on talk and from all over the political spectrum just want to talk politics. For years. Republicans ruled this state they had to try factor control of both legislative bodies and a Republican governor over those coffees. Patrick would hear stories about how party control was gradually getting more rigid squeezing out moderate voices. What one of the Republicans who don't want to speak for all women, but she'll tell you about going into party of ants. Whether it's local party, or you know, walking into a caucus meeting in the legislature of your colleagues in me mood being called names being history by people who are supposed to be in your party in your allies. Another one of those moderate Republicans a woman has talked pretty openly. I think on social media about stealing threatened by her colleagues Republican colleagues who perhaps have singled her out as a woman, maybe seeing her as weaker, and you know. Same things to her pointing out. How will they're carrying a gun which they do in the Kansas legislature is totally irrelevant comment. Some other conversation hold it will doing legislative work another legislator said to her. I'm carrying a gun. Yeah. Care like said it like an joking kind of way. But that's totally irrelevant comment to the conversation. That's being had even against your painting. This picture of a political party that operates more like the mafia? Politics is like that. And a lot of places. Yeah. But a few weeks back came the first signs that something might change. I a democrat was elected governor. And then two more Kansas lawmakers, leaving the Republican party to become democrat. I am not a Trump Republican not a crisco Bach Republican when Kansas Republican leaders announced they want to scrap the new school funding plan Clayton decided to leave the GOP as such. I knew that I really couldn't be in line with my party anymore, especially on that issue. So I'm done. Over the course of a single week four state legislators all moderates left.
