"Look ahead of the top stories for you investors in the coming week. I'm John Tucker in New York. The mid term elections aren't for at least another year and the presidential election until 2024 What you might think It's already an election year. When you look at the way things are unfolding in Washington at the more Let's head to our Bloomberg 99 1 newsroom in Washington and Amy Morris, Amy Yes, we are watching a divide grow wider within the Republican Party, while the GOP last week was deciding whether to oust Republican representative Liz Cheney from their leadership more than 100, other Republicans were discussing forming a new third party. Meanwhile, President Biden met with top Democratic leaders of the White House in a show of unity for their party. Let's get some insight now from Alex Wayne. Alex is White House editor for Bloomberg News. Alex. It's pleasure. Thanks so much for taking the time. Happy to be here. Let's look back on this past Wednesday, the show of force on the Democratic side was that effective Well, I think the White House is certainly trying to draw a contrast with the Republican Party. They Chin sake. The White House press secretary has repeatedly called the Republicans describe them as being in turmoil or having intraparty squabbles over the direction they're party, whereas Democrats Are trying to portray themselves as focused on getting the country to the pandemic. Getting the economy back on its feet. S O. That contrast is certainly being there. They're certainly trying to draw that contrast. I think I think pulling reflects that. Probably it Z working. Um, the president's approval ratings have been pretty solid. I think he most recent Gallup poll he's out. Out 55%. AP hadn't even even better recently at the end of sixties, so it seems like most Americans like what he's doing. On, but he's developed some political capital here in the 1st 100 something days of his presidency. You know, the conventional wisdom says that there may be rifts in the GOP, but there are also rifts in the Democratic Party. However, it does seem like the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is kind of holding everything together, so anything we should be watching for as we assess where the fishers might be. Yeah, well, you know, but the president is trying to push through some some really big spending plans. He's of course, won passage of his stimulus a couple months ago. But the stuff he's got feet up is even bigger. He's got about $4 trillion and plans for infrastructure and education and its support for families. On bond, the fissures in the Democratic Party. You're gonna start to show up real soon when when that legislation actually begins moving through. Congress hasn't been introduced yet, or even written. We don't really know what it's gonna look like. But progressive Liberal Democrats want even even bigger spending plans. And the moderates looks like Joe Manchin and Kristen Cinema in the Senate are very concerned about having some a little bit of republic least a little bit of Republican support for these things. On there also, ah lot, a lot more husband to raise taxes on the liberal wing of the party. He also wants to be able to point to that bipartisan sort of camaraderie. Some bipartisan accomplishment on it almost feels like he's getting somewhere with infrastructure. Yeah, So last week he had a pair of meetings of the public and the White House. First, it was Kevin McCarthy that the House minority leader and then and Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, who came over with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. They all met together for nearly two hours to talk about the infrastructure plan, and the Republicans came out and said they're pulling leaders came out instead. What we think we can, we can probably reach a compromise as long as Joe Biden Respects the fact that we're not going to touch the 2017 tax cuts are not going to raise any taxes. All the Republican leaders say there, but none of the members will vote for any tax increase. That's a problem because Joe Biden has proposed funding his infrastructure plan largely with a corporate tax increase to you if you were called Donald Trump slash the corporate tax rate to 21%. Joe Biden on thinks that corporate America would be fine with rate is high is 28% of the moderates like Joe Manchin are saying? Well, maybe we'll We'll settle it 25%. But Republicans are saying they won't move off of the 21% so that'll that'll affect negotiations on an infrastructure plan. But, um, But then some. Some other Senate Republicans came over later in the week and And not what your button on a kind of counter proposal that Republicans have made on infrastructure. So much smaller planet Joe Biden's infrastructure plan is like $2 trillion. The Republican plan is Big but nowhere near that scope. It's about 700 billion. Um, they met together again for close to two hours. And does Republicans came out more were very enthusiastic about about reaching a deal, but they, but they said that there needs to be progress by Memorial Day. So that's really just two weeks. So, um, we're looking in the next two weeks for for some kind of Ah, Compromised arise between thieves, Senate Republicans and Joe Biden. Yeah, I understand that they are looking forward to having more meetings with the president in the coming week. And they do intend to have maybe a revised version of their counter offer on infrastructure. But the sticking point, though, the line they will not cross is raising taxes on corporations and the wealthy and that's how the president had planned to pay for this. That's right. And so he challenged these Republicans, the Senate Republicans with the counter proposal, he challenged them to come up. With an alternative financing method. They really don't have one..

Made this shooting possible because they implemented something called restorative justice this policy which really just blames teaches for students failures puts kids and teachers at risk and make shootings more likely. Democratic policies did and kill the kids and parkland restorative justice. Policies aren't dangerous to safety. However if someone saw andrew park on the street if an adult saw him and he's an adult also and started chasing after him and peppering him with arguments or questions. I would think most reasonable people would say all right. Maybe you're right guy peppering pollack with questions but there's probably a better way to go about it but even if such a person did harass andrew pollick with these questions. If that person were elected to congress i would expect him or her face some disciplinary consequences for acting like that. And that just wants for pretty much living that brand but beyond even that. and that's a hypothetical. Here's what's not hypothetical. The reason marjorie taylor grains should be rebuked by the republican caucus and not giving committee. Assignments is that they should see the presence of her and people like her and there are a couple of others as a threat to their power. Not as a source of it. I can't prove this to them and their instincts say hey these are our people. We have to kowtow to them. We have to cotton to them. We have to court them. But i do think once again if the tables were turned. Let's say there was an actual democrat. Who was just elected who loudly espouse the cartoon version that republicans try to paint democrats as okay. So let's imagine..

"What's your say. I love you. I can't say anything you get you on honest day. Go ahead mike. Ask me a question about about this. Go ahead i have a. I have the evidence. Go ahead ask me anything. Did the d- d did any of the dead people's ended up in streams or rivers ballots. What did you do. Ballots had a salad. Yeah there you go. That's the star witness. What are you gonna do. That's your star witness. Are you ready to give it up yet. That's your star. Witness rudy giuliani traitor to the united states of america. Because he knows he's lying. I want to do one more thing and then go into the patriot on portion of the show. All right in the patron portion. Here's what i want to talk about. I want to find out if we would take the vaccine. I would love to have that conversation. Find out i want to discuss if i would take the vaccine if you would take the vaccine And i also want to get into this rumor about pence potentially becoming president in the last days so that he could possibly pardon trump which gets into the whole pre pardons and can you pardon yourself which is an interesting conversation to have all of that. Yeah in just a moment for the folk supporting the show. But let's finish on this concept of the wisconsin supreme court because court court after court has just shut trump down. What's the final on this one. Four three you're done. It's all over wisconsin supreme court throughout the trump challenge in a four to three vote. Who the hell were these. Three people that were like. I don't know. Tell me about the river again. Wisconsin southern accent. I only do southern accent. Russia was wisconsin. They were going mallets. Then these lever. Why is he rusher from now from the rest of the show anytime you do that exit. It has to be russian because texan. I'm offended that you think everyone from texas sounds like that. Are everyone that support trump sounds like. Yeah i'm terrible. So yeah wisconsin said no go in its own. No-go wisconsin's over. We checked all the boxes. Right yes what we said. it's over. Trump knows it's over. Can i say that before. We go that insider reporting and i believe it says that trump is known since day one. And that's what makes him so disgusting. Do you think that's why he. And the republicans passed a tax bill. That's going to cause taxes to go up on everyone in twenty twenty one. Yeah because it would. It would probably improve the economy on some level tax increases. Do help the country. Let's be fair but it It could also hurt it. But i'm i'm not a communist but he intentionally set it to happen in twenty twenty one. That was a political decision. Yeah right because either he was going to win. And it wouldn't matter you can vote him out of office or he knew he was going to lose and their preemptively trying to make democrats look bad so that when people start showing charts on facebook they have to show look a very first year of biden's term taxes. It's anything biden can do about that. I mean anything that gets done by. Executive order can be undone with the stroke of a pen on day one. So i'm not sure how that was that an executive order. I don't think so. I'm saying that is one thing you can do. He can undo. And that's what trump did with obama is. The first thing you can do is undo every executive order. So those are. That's the easy one as far as the taxes. I mean i do recall that the taxes on the middle class and i think this has to do with the trump tax cuts that were passed in. Twenty seventeen is at the tax cuts on the rich and the corporations were permanent. The tax cuts on the middle class to sunset out. They they they. They expired and i think they expired for this. Very reason. and twenty twenty one so that they'd have to be re upped by trump or round of his the person that beats him extra exactly but but this now is going. This is gonna look bad on and maneuvres because what you just said requires nuance and requires me. Closing my mouth. Yeah listening to you and being open to learn something. And i have yet to meet someone wearing a maga- hat that that describes right. They're not interested in hearing what you have to say the in some of the most convincing debates or discussions or lives or podcasts or even tiktok streams or instagram when people are engaging something i used to do a long time ago several years ago i would do this thing where i would quote something intel a christian it was from the koran and they would say it was disgusting and terrible and i'd go. Oh my god. I'm sorry. That's actually from the bible. Or i would say a quote an i still have a a thing in my browser from like probably eight years ago. That's called god. Or hitler. And it shows the a bunch of crazy quotes from hitler. And a bunch of crazy quotes from god in the old testament. And i would play a game with people. And i'd be like i'm gonna say a quote you tell me who said it. I wouldn't say. God ridler i would say the quote and they'd be like oh. That sounds terrible. Ongo you're right. That's hitler and go. What about this quota go. That's yeah that's gotta be that's gotta be terroir have that's that that's hitler and then i would list another one and eagle all was that was then.

I've there nobody wants to come forward. They're getting threatened. Okay look there's something to that the that's the same thing that kept a lot of women quiet. When when the metoo movement exploded a lot of people said my career was at risk. And i was afraid of and i get that being in this line of work. I get that not wanting to say certain things or being associated. Because you don't want to get attacked. I understand that. I get that but think about the the the the opposite of that. Now anyone can say that about anything. I can make up an outlandish claim about anything. That's happened to me in the past name. Some big celebrity and say this person did this thing to me or this person hurt me and then i just get to and they say well how come nobody else has confirmed this because they're afraid of being in the public and the. It's the same thing whenever i would talk with christians about the resurrection and i would say well. We don't have the evidence of the resurrection. And can we go into details about that. And what do you believe that some. We came back to life and let's get into the science behind that and let's talk about. It wasn't a miracle. Do miracles do happen a lot of times. They sort of revert back to this. This because i'll say it literally happened one time and we have no eye-witnesses translated and written accounts. Who say their i witnesses. But we don't know that the eye witnesses were actually recorded. There's a lot of missing data and they say they say precisely because it only happened once is why i believe it like that makes it special that it only happened once and i go. But that's not. How will anything else works. I don't tell you. I walked through my door today. Didn't even have to use the key. Open it. I literally just manifested myself through the door. You know that doesn't happen you know it's impossible to happen and i go exactly. That's what makes this so special. Michael wrap your head around it. We don't address anything else in that manner and we're starting to see that logic replicated in other forms and here it is yeah. It's what you're the only one. There are thirty thousand ballots or in your claim. Now one hundred twenty thousand ballots and we're supposed to put more credibility into what you have to say because you're the only one coming forward because it's so hard to be you because you are that sacrificial lamb. You are the one being crucified in the public eye. And that makes you more believable. What about evidence. What about collecting reality. What about taking the inventory of everything. That's around us. None of that counts anymore right. Whatever the most outlandish claim that fits my preconceived agenda that makes me feel good about my confirmation bias and confirms my my bias and is the most outlandish. I get two now stand alone as a hero. I'm on this mountain. Where's your evidence. Exactly they burned all. Don't show that. What did you do to it in it doesn't. There's no logical reason going on here. This is episode of my podcast. Where no matter what question i throw out. It's just like batman. I asked general question. Take that reality. But how do you reconcile this. I don't have to reconcile reality. Get out of here. I'm best friends with the creator of the universe. But that's not what facts lineup. Screw your facts just gets. It can just lead to absurdity so fast Also point out that there is the exact opposite motivation. Which is you're gonna tell me. And we've seen it so many times That she gets into go fund me going now and that she's not going to get every maga- guy in the world to donate a little money and she can make a hundred thousand dollars. You're gonna tell me. We found out that the postal service guy That was claiming that he was told to throw out trump ballots or something. I can't remember exactly but it was an outrageous claim. It turned out he was. He was a trump donor had actually given him tens of thousands of dollars. Sorry good so anytime you come out and you say look at me. I'm the victim in the the liberals have destroyed my life. You stand to make one hundred thousand dollars easy. I don't think about funneling her some money. I mean i'm just saying that. She says her life was ruined. I would be willing to bet that her life was also not ruined. I don't doubt that everything she said about. Does she have any change your phone number. And she's getting. I'm sure that is that on both sides. I mean we know that the georgia election official was saying that many lives are being ruined of republicans. Who are being attacked by these mega people. But we've seen it the christian pizza shop that says they won't serve a gay wedding. They get five hundred thousand dollars in go fund me account and they shut down and retire like they're like all these liberals like i'll never eat at your pizza place again. Well we got to help them and then next thing. They've got a half a million dollars in the bank and they closed down the pizza place and they're done and we've seen it already once with this. It was a postal service worker. I can't remember the details. But we found out that he was paid a substantial amount of money to basically say that they were told to throw out trump votes or something like that makes no sense when they talk about trump votes being thrown out. Well until you've opened the envelope. How the hell do you know who is being voted for. But he was paid money. So there's the motivation on both sides people. Their lives are getting ruined. I can't even get actual job anymore..

I mean i i was just giving out just to november eight. That's very interesting to me. Because she sounds like a nitwit and probably easily manipulated by tribal think cult. Think that it wasn't until around the eighth that it was full blown. This election was stolen in at first. We were counting the votes. And you know giuliani had with it and whatnot. But he could have still gone. Trump's way was a it was right around the eighth that they called it for right after the eighth or right before the eighth that they called it for biden that it became the steel is on. They stole the election. They said they were dominion voting machines and all the conspiracy theories and then she gets it in her head that she witnessed all these things which is possible that you can have reverse engineer memory. We know that this can happen. Can happen even more easily with simple people which she sounds.

And i mean that regardless of party if kelly lawful won't vote if david perdue won't your vote that okay so break this down to explain what's happening able so this is lynwood now talking about Kelly oftener kick kelly lochner and david. Purdue david purdue senators in georgia that this would change the balance of the senate. The senate This is a massively important as important as look this if they lose it. Mcconnell is out of power if they lose right no not as a senator. He's a senator still exactly and that means biden that means democrats keep the majority and would decide what the bills go to the floor for a vote if republicans win this george election theoretically they could shut down anything that biden brings to the tape anything by embracing now. What what's the argument here. Why not why get so twisted up about this when the filibuster is still allows the minority to shut things down sometimes I mean the filibuster has been done away within a few cases already and the majority party could probably get rid of him or but i mean as it is right now and we saw this just worse for us. It just works. But i mean under obama worse it's worse right but Under obama we similar situation and the senate was able to shut absolutely everything out. So yeah okay. So what he's saying is he's telling essentially telling republicans to not vote in this george election until these two because they're trying to force these to georgia senators to the governor and secretary of state. Oh i'm sorry trying to force them to overturn this election. No no no. He's talking about the two right to senators so he's trying to force their hand into supporting going after the governor but right what the who the real threat is to the governor and the secretary of the state who are verifying the votes and saying that donald trump lost the state of georgia and said it was a clean and fair election. Selena are not willing to kowtow. Okay so let let me play the audio and then you can break it down for hunky. Vote if david purdue won't your vote they gotta earn it.

They're just having fun like they've they've realized that this is just a colton anything the dear leader says they'll believe and they're just like i'm going to get them to believe. North korean naval ships came in two main and dropped off boatloads ballots. I would that he. That would be the worst way to defraud and election. Why why go through all that trouble to actually make ballots and do have when you could just worst leaders and change. The numbers like well. It doesn't make any sense. Actually have i don't know just every election official republicans including this is why the republican party falling apart because these are republican a governors and election officials and then secretaries of state particularly in georgia. That are being attacked. Relentlessly by the magical they they will tell you. Every election official every william bar are the nation's attorney generals come out and said that they've looked into voter fraud. There's no cases of it in the one of the reasons is you could print up spot on perfect ballots. That would and they wouldn't work. They would not work. You cannot print ballots and bring in new ballots to the machine. Every ballot that is printed in an election is accounted for. There's a serial number on it. There's a there's a bar code on it there's information about it. They know who they sent that exact ballot two. It's got a comeback with that exact person's name and a signature that matches the signature that they have on file with that person in order for that ballots to be counted. You can't just print up ballots and then bring them to a a polling place and drop them off and expect them to be cut that story that narrative is just for the most ignorant people anybody that does any research and. I'm sure you saw the georgia state election official. Who gave impassioned speech. Did i did i did. And i also saw the just countless lawsuits. That were dropped and dropped and dropped and dropped. And in the the angry descends from these judges. Like you're bringing things in here. You're making this claim. The new providing so-called evidence that does not prove the claim that you're saying it does and you don't have argued and then in rudy. Giuliani will say something in the media and then when you hear the audio from his actual news actual court appearance. He doesn't say any of the things that he says in in court right because he could be held legally accountable for those things which gets to the split again chris. Christie himself donald. Trump's confidante came out and said here's how you know that they're fullish it they get up in front of the media and they screamed fraud and then they get in front of a judge where they're held accountable to their words and it is illegal to lie in a court of law and they don't claim fraud and we have it from the trump appointed pennsylvania. Well there is. There is audio of Rudy giuliani asserting fraud. Happened and then the judge says. Do you have evidence for the claim. And he says we have sworn affidavits from people who said they saw it. He said you've shown me nothing. And they start handing stuff to the judge and the judge goes. This isn't this isn't what this is. That's not what this is. That's not what this is. Yeah and then he he. Kinda skuld giuliani in says. You've made an assertion but you haven't brought evidence that actually backs up that assertion and he kinda gets onto and then dismissed the case. Yeah so does. He hasn't made the claim of fraud is completely accurate. He has made the claim but they just they don't present the evidence because that could be right there in so many trials so many court dates at this point all their own out there in the high twenties now that at one of the cases i believe it was the pennsylvania they said. Is this a fraud case. Giuliani said on the record. No i'm not. we're not claiming fraud here. That's what i was about to say that a caveat he does say i'm not claiming fraud. Here yeah but then. He went on a news conference hours later on before. And then either men and hugo chavez and your votes went to a server in germany and the Yeah it's it's and this is really what it's all about is that this is in my opinion. This were boring for bordering on him becoming a traitor to the united states of america. I believe because what he's ultimately doing is he's decaying confidence in our free and fair elections and he is. Giuliani giuliani trump. And the whole the whole crew everyone. That's claiming fraud at this point without evidence and is playing this narrative. What they're doing is they are bringing down. The government of the united states of america the future government the biden administration that they are destroying confidence in our elections. They are destroying democracy and they are trying to completely destroy the president of the united states. President joe by pope borders on something very close to treason. Let's just say they're not patriotic. They are the furthest thing the people that call themselves. Patriots are the furthest thing from patriots. Yeah i agree. I tweeted not too long ago. That i have a word once means something and then later overtime ins of meeting the exact opposite of what originally like terrific was originally like terrifying. And now it's wonderful. Yeah I think i said something like that's that's about to happen with patriot. Yeah because everyone. that's you know. It's so bizarre to me. The number of people who yelled at their patriot yet wave a confederate flag. And i know i mean. It's so bizarre. In fact i would go on record to say everyone who waves a confederate flag calls themselves a patriot. Course although i do say that There is a workaround for the whole Confederate flag controversy. If you just one avoid the whole thing just wave. A trump flag means the exact same thing. Means the exact same thing at this point in my opinion in fact. I'm to go out and say that. I've been as of late. Been thinking that the most comparable thing of the trump presidency is. The confederacy lasted five years. Roughly more or less than he became the candidate when his presidency ended more it was the confederacy was almost entirely poor. People that could never have slaves fighting for rich people's rights to have slaves. Trump thing is poor. People fighting for rich people have tax breaks and corporate handouts and deregulation things that they they wanna do away with the death tax which kicks in at what five million dollars like same thing and i think that they will forever see it as their greatest shining moment and i suspect that one day we are going to have mega rally reenactments yes coming. I'm bill be playing the maga- my friend here he's playing. Blm protester today and yeah. I made him southern guy of will. The republican party is having a little bit of a division right now.

I had something in my lap in it and show them and right when we go live on air. They cut away from me. Do their intro. I put on this big white construction hat. That i had for a photo shoot and they cut to me. I'm wearing this giant hat and shadows like what what are you doing. I understand you like big white hats. I just wanted to fit in with the group. Only people who would seem both interviews are going to get another gonna look like a lunatic but it was just a little fun. San no yeah he. He was the guest right before me on chad breath show right. After he got a jew. Wow was he. He was just talking. Rational dot de honestly He says some stuff that if we would challenge but he seemed like really yeah. He's stealing a decent human for for partial hot. I found that's hard to believe. I've got some insider information i don't know if i could but There was a a documentary film crew I believe. I'm not defending roger stone on our. I'm saying a decent human but like he came off what he's personal but then when you get into the facts of that it's like yeah people what we're doing. That's not what the evidence shows. Is that what the courts but then he just you know he he blames the media he blames you know showing partial stories. And that's the whole truth and you know he's got richard nixon tattooed on his back. And it's like i mean but nixon was guilty. We have the tapes like a he just he james o'keefe and other of other people they they don't see themselves as pundits i see themselves as warriors and that this is war against the left and you fight wars you fight with any trick you can. Which is why. James o'keefe will cut deceptive if people don't know project veritas james o'keefe as he cuts deceptive videos that make people look bad he he he sets people up. He currently claims that he has nine months. Worth of morning calls From cnn cnn will call out to all their reporters or whoever it is. They have a big conference on. Somehow he got on the call quietly every morning recording it and he claims he has all this evidence but nobody believes it because he edits he could edit it to say anything. We know that these skills exist. He's a complete phony. Will roger stone's the same way where he believes. It's a war and so you go to a war with any weapons you have. And if that's deception and making rumors and bullshit and this is the way. He worked with With nixon and the nixon white house as well so what. I'm about to tell you is going to sound exactly like that rich. Roger stone is now claiming. And i'm i'm sure everybody. Listening is aware of dominion voting machines in hugo chavez and all these insane things that donald trump is saying wellstone's taken it one step further and he's saying that north korean naval ships were taking boat boatloads of ballots in through maine..

"I believe is the story and they were offering huge sums of money to somebody in the direct circle of the trump organization or the trump family or the trump administration. We don't know who do we know when this happened very recently the so it wasn't like roger stone who's already been netted. Oh well roger stone. I think is centered his commute. He wasn't a in was a pardon right. could it be flynn No flynn has been pardoned. He's got his pardon right but it was just recently read No tone. No i think flynn was. I think i mean look now. We're getting into conspiracy theories. But i think that flynn and donald are dirty with the same deeds and that he's a co-conspirator of donald trump's and that's why he was pardoned I would be surprised. If i don i think donald trump is wanted to pardon. Flynn and we know that he tried to pressure. James comb into not even investigating flynn. So there's been something about flynn that trump didn't want this guy sitting in jail for a long time. This is going back four years now now this this could also be. This could also have to do with him. Not wanting the guy to talk right. That's what i'm saying. Okay okay with. Flynn i i mean. I'm i'm implying that without saying that something about general flynn trump. Didn't want investigate it. And he didn't want this guy going to jail and we know that donald trump's not a loyal guy he throws people under the bus all the time was his interest while demanding loyalty while demanding loyalty always but was his interest in keeping Flynn from being investigated and then ultimately out of jail and now pardoned and Which could get us into the next story. I would love to double back to the pardons but since we're talking. Flynn well you were on the set of a sitcom on. Cbs concern general. Flynn released a rather alarming statement calling his organization. We the people in which he asked. Donald trump to institute martial law to do a redo of the election in which the military would be in charge of it paper ballots. Only in person voting only total redo of the election. Here's my favorite part though federal election. Only all those state offices that the republicans cleaned up on that stand but the one. We don't like we get a redo federal only. He said that i mean. What a fucking idiot if you're gonna if you're if you're going to be a sore loser and reloading and maybe listening out. So i'm down michael What a gosh. darn fool. Thank you and beyond that. Wtc we the people convention calls for president to invoke limited martial law to hold new election in full-page washington times ad if legislators court and congress do not follow the constitution. Okay that makes it legal for him to throw the if in there as conditional and now there's no actual call for it. It's it's if they don't follow the constitution well of course if they didn't follow the constitution but he's clearly distorted pushed through but go ahead. Well the one thing in there. That really i read the the full texts that he released and He talks about. Do you have it. I have it pulled up. Yeah then you could see that. He talked about lincoln and the the the And the steps. That lincoln took during the civil war in which he and this is true. And flynn is right to say this. But in which. Lincoln shutdown papers Newspapers that were in opposition to lincoln. Had editors arrested and then flynn says i think trump should be more lincoln like in that way basically saying shut down the new york times arrests the journalists shutdown cnn and arrest the journalists have limited martial law. I don't know what he means by limited since he says he wants the military to take over and conduct an election. Sounds like full blown martial law to me. But what do i know in blue states. That's why it's limited. It's just go to the place. swing states. yeah and and he's also going for journalists to be arrested in newspapers to be shut down and they're printing presses smashed in the streets. Here's what it says. The this screenshot you sent me in show. Prep so i don't know where it's from. It's just a picture so you could type this fall know. Tell me what this is from. So they can fund is from the we the people. It's it's from flynn's site. It's this we the people site it says when the legislators courts and or congress failed to do their duty under the twelfth amendment. You must be ready. Mr president to immediately declare a limited form of martial law and temporarily suspend the constitution and civilian control of these federal elections for the sole purpose of having the military oversee a national re vote. This guy just got a pardon is says jape is his paper ballots period. No computers period hand-counted with both parties watching every vote period only registered voters period photo. Id to prove residence period. I if i just got a part. If i was sitting in jail. And i got part and i just go home. I'd have a glass of port kick on the tv is calling for to suspend the us constitution because he didn't like the way the election turned out. Yeah there it is. You must also act like lincoln. Did to silence. The destructive media's one-sided propaganda designed and proven to influence the election outcome and end the unlawful censorship of big tech to restore the confidence of the american people. You mean when trump goes. I won that election in. Twitter puts a little note under the goes. That's not what we determined. Yeah yeah that's that's censoring. Absolutely that's the big tech and then trump is making a huge thing about wanting to repeal. I think it's Section to thirty or something like that we can get into that in a second but I love what you just said. He said we want you to shut down. The free press arrest of journalists and their editors in order to restore the american people's confidence in the margin ago in like nazis smashing printing presses and burning the new york times building in order to restore confidence in order to be more like america. We should be more like north. Yeah is what we're hearing. Yeah no.

"Only i said only if you voted for biden did you vote against trump or because you love biden and it was like ninety six percent against trump. Yeah i think the right did the exact same thing. i don't think they were voting for trump. i think most of them were voting against the radical left and the the riots. And i'm using air quotes because i'm good at podcasting but it's it's this idea that the left is a riot that the left is baby. Murderers that the left and they sort of believed the straw man ideas of the left. And that's what they were voting against when that stuff wasn't on the ballot necessarily right and then there's like four thousand hardcore trumpers that show up at rallies in say terrible things on cameron hold up awful signs and curie confederate flags and we think that there are seventy million of those. Yeah there's not. I don't believe that first second or not. That's not who's who's supporting who's keeping trump going. That's not that's not. Yeah and there are of course always going to end it is it is. It is devolved into a cult in my opinion magazine. More of a cult. And we're seeing the the splits in the republican party right now as we speak and this is all what. We're trying to get into. Which gets back to ivanka who you think would make a good candidate. I don't don't put that word in my mouth. Hold on hold on. Make a good candidate. Let's be. I think she could gain support. Yeah from the hardcore trumpers would typically love her. Yeah and i think some of those conservatives that bailed on trump would re embrace. Ivanka is what i'm saying. I think they want to be done. With the entire trump family trump is an albatross around the neck of the republican party. And they can't wait for the to see this guy's backside. I'm serious i. I really think that in. Ivanka they see her as the patch. We can bring back republicans with someone who's measured. Who's and let's face it. When it comes to politics the stuff matters. She's tall she's attractive. She's smart hate a lot for that attractiveness. Well i'm just right. I don't include that part. When i'm talking about her attractiveness. i'm just saying what she's she's to look on the television. Yeah like people look at trump and go. He makes me sick his mannerisms. His lies is the way he looks the way he did the faces. He makes the things he says. That's the stuff that made people not want to vote for him. Even though they agreed with some of his policies. Ivanka removes all of that. She's not discussing. she's not terrible. She doesn't make fun of women she's not gonna you know she's not going to do those terrible things so i think the republicans are going to sink their teeth into that and welcome her into the party. I honestly do. I don't think donald trump will make a run in two thousand twenty four. But i think yvonne will. Yeah i think trump is going. That's where he's gonna put. All his eggs is in the vodka basket as he has his entire life or at least her entire life. He's crazy for her Well she sat for deposition wh- they're saying that one million dollars was funnelled into the pockets of the trump family themselves from the inaugural fund. Which say that. More time one. Because i really wind and other people are on edibles. Go one more time. I'm the one on edibles but one million dollars is what. They're claiming of money is intended for the inaugural fund. Went directly into the trump families. Coffers that mostly went through the trump hotel which overcharged to the tune of twice the going rates Ivanka tried to defend herself by showing an an email. Where she said just charged the fair going rate or something like that but the receipts themselves and there's even an email from the One of the inaugural planners to ivanka saying hey just so you know in an open audit people are going to see these numbers that the trump hotel is charging us and they are outrageous. It's going to look really bad for you. And the greedy trump brain said. I don't care that was the reply friend and that wasn't the replied they did. They went ahead and charged anyway. I don't know what the reply was. We've only seen those two emails where ivanka said. Hey just charge to the trump organization just charged the fair going rate and then we but we also saw an email that went out. From one of the organizers saying hey in an open audit this is going to come out the recharging these rates it looks really bad for the trump family and we know that they went ahead and charged the rates anyway. And that's what you know. That's how these businesses work you can funnel money through your businesses and the dc. Ag is alleging and he has the evidence to prove it that The trump family benefited to the tune of one million dollars in their personal accounts from the inaugural funds. Which is i. I cringe anytime i hear someone on his side. Sort of give us defense that well he. He doesn't take a salary as president. He donated salary. And when you think about all the all the golfing and the millions and millions of dollars that the government has had to pay trump properties in order for him to go golf on a random tuesday. it is disturbing. It's just. It's just hurtful that people don't make the connection yeah and they are not deed vested from their. They're in their businesses and they're still making money off of it and the trump hotel in washington in specific appearing that Saudi princes were renting out entire floors of the trump hotel at times. Maybe not even showing up and it was a way to get donald. Trump's attention was to funnel money into the trump businesses and ivanka wait to get his attention. And therefore naver beaming be more connected with him in the political world in the political world and There is a case. Where would when we were working on a trade deal. China that suddenly out of the blue. Ivanka got all the patents in china that she wanted or the copyrights that she wanted. She it it. It is always appeared that the trump family is benefiting from the office of the president. And this is just more evidence of it and she sat. And we'll see. I mean this is. This is getting to the big story. And there's so many stories which is the preemptive pardon that donald trump wants to do for his friends and family and now it turns out that there's an investigation I believe it's the actually the justice department. That is investigating. They're saying that they have evidence of a pay for pardon Briberies you saw me writing over here. Yeah that was literally the note. I just made i put him. Dash out next departed pardons and wrote for pay. Because that's when we got to. That i was going to get to it but yeah true professional fashion. You jump right great job. We're just pulled back the curtain on the whole show michael. We're just showing them how to podcast exists. How it operates. Yeah that's that's that's that's insane. I did see this new story. I watched a little video on it in my dressing room. I'm addressing. i'm gonna talk like that every time. I brag about what i did when i was a major thing roommate. So i'm just sort of like a bomb his ass. I'll tell you coming on. Should've gone the banner me so a attempted not an actual Pay for part in a request. Well it's redacted names at the moment We haven't seen the full report. It was a redacted report that the justice department has released so we don't know who but we know that it was a lawyer for someone in prison..

"So and destig- take that mom i'm essential. I do something with my life. Oh that's good to know. I didn't know that that's already some of the news that i got today I do want to say. I'm excited. That i'm also going to be recording very soon with someone who is is a rising star And she would roll her eyes to say that it would probably. She'd probably wanna throw things at me if i said that. But if you are on tiktok if you have scrolled through tiktok and occasionally you don't just see a stupid dance or prank on someone and come across really good information. It was probably from bun daddy. She is really popular. She's got like six hundred thousand followers on that platform and growing immensely every day and she's I think our bio says ceo of sliding into frame she literally slides in on her socks and films herself in the mirror but she talks about really important stuff mostly for young people to grasp and even older people can wrap their heads around it. It's like i told her today. She's like a modern day dear abby and she's like that's vaguely familiar to me because the age gap but she's she's phenomenal. She's incredibly smart and Sometimes we get on skype and talk for hours. We find ourselves agreeing and disagreeing turns out. She was really influenced by my show. Many years ago. Knew who i was. And then we reconnected on tiktok and i was like. She's huge star and she. She mentioned me. What's going on turns out. She's a fan of the podcast and We've become really good friends so She's a fantastic person. And i get to have a show with her coming up. So we're gonna talk about what it is to be a content creator some of the struggles the ups and downs And there are also some things. We're gonna disagree on we. We got into a little bit over skype today and we found a few points where we completely disagreed on. Really sensitive topics like even some things having to do with race and privilege and you may be surprised as to where each of us fall on that so I'm looking forward to having that discussion. So be sure to tune in for that. And if you're not subscribe to the podcast go do it And i want to say one more thing. I want to make sure that at some point today. Michael we we have a really good patriae on segment for the show. And here's why And this is just me pulling back the curtain for everybody listening When my son had his accident on november eleventh and sadly died i I made a post. And i said guys. I'm i'm gonna have to I need some time to be with family. And i will never understand why bereavement is only three days. If i were working a regular job there is no way in hell. I would have been back to work at any reasonable amount of capacity three days after the death of my son. that is mind blowing to me. and for people listening going dude. I've never really heard you talk about your son recently. It's always been your daughter. You only have one kid. Well my my son I i met him when he was eight months old and i raised him until he was eighteen and he moved out and that was about about two years ago Yeah he would have been actually threes. He would have been twenty one on thanksgiving day so he hasn't lived with me in three years. So there's been that that big a disconnect there And it's a long story we can get into that on another podcast where we talk about grief and death and relationships and all of that but if you're brand new to the show and you haven't heard me talk about my son in you're just now finding this out that's why but people who were listening five six years ago. Even as recently as three years ago he was a part of the twenty four hour broadcast thought he was the producer for those he was taking calls. He was very much involved. He edited almost every audio book. I ever produced. He was the editor on that project. So we worked closely together. And i absolutely loved him heart so but immediately after his death I could not imagine going back to work for three days. That just sounds incredible to me. But i didn't make a post on the post. I said i apologize for the lack of content. I'll be back as soon as i can or something along. Those lines in a lot of people were like. Hey don't worry don't rush back on our account take your time and be with your family and i appreciated that. You know but the reality is it. When all you do for a living create and i'll probably have to slightly retell the story when i do my show with with with bundy There is a segment of your your base. That that relies on that for entertainment. And when you don't provide it on that consistent basis you're not releasing shows every wednesday every saturday and there's not content just for patrons there's a percentage of people that will just cancel and sadly i in the last three weeks. I've lost forty four patrons. Because i haven't been able to keep up content so i wanna get back into that. I want to kick that back into gear and so we're gonna do some special patron content. Today the vast majority of patriots have stuck by me and have been there. And i really appreciate those guys but i do want to say that i do. That's why i felt the need to say as i apologize in advance for the lack of content. Because i knew that would happen so Definitely looked looking forward to doing more more pitcher content Before we get into that before we get started. I want to offer you a little treat today. Michael i like being offered traits I feel bad. i'm not the type of person to enjoy a treat and not offer some to my guest. I am having a lovely glass of part. Which is my go-to you like port. Just it's have never heard of it. Of course i've heard of it. Man of the world in this is true. I know it's a. It's a little more potent than wine. Which is why. I know what port is because when given the option i'm like yeah i'll go with the strong stuff and yeah it's a mixture of wine and brandy nationally. It's about twenty percent. It tastes like maple syrup and gasoline. It's delicious I don't have anything in liquid form for you. But i would. I would like to offer you but if you would like to relax a little bit here today. What are we got i have. I just have a little hybrid here for you. Have a little cushy punch edibles edibles. Yeah i this. Wow i don't i. Don't typically gnaw on the marriage wanna. Yeah but i've no and this is a brand new pat. It's still sealed after that way for you. Yeah i wanted to offer this to you. That could be the listener. The patriots only content is way that stuff kicks in. Regilio rain ran. I'm just gonna play music and who let you go would you. Would you like this. I'll take it fantastic literally their through across the table. Eat one right now. The anyone that's had edibles knows you've got to be careful so those are ten milligrams. Yeah i'm not good with the numbers. Never never was a numbers guy. I just know that. I've ended up on the wrong side of the edibles on more than one occasion. You wanna be. Yeah i love how you doing trump hand motions just for me. He can't even see it but it's never been a numbers guy in the hands are going in and out get Can i tell you really quickly that that About four years ago now i I went to actually a friend of mine's mother's memorial service and so i know what you're thinking you've got wasted because now but i whatever reason at my friend's mother's memorial service a friend of mine it was. It was a a relaxed enjoyable in environment. She had suffered a long time and it was a celebration of her life. Friend of mine pulled out a spray mouth breached that spray and he sprayed one in his mouth and i drove that and he said it's a marijuana concentrated to teach concentrated said four and i said oh concentrate. Let me try that. So i took it just anyone dude. One one spray will mess you up so bad you just did three. I was like. I think i'm gonna be fine. I don't know who you're talking to here. I've had my run ins with the marijuana. I'm gonna be fine. And i went home about twenty five minutes later and i was tired and i went to bed. I woke up at three in the morning. And i was like something is horribly horribly wrong. I didn't know what i stumbled into the bathroom. And i looked in the mirror and my pupils were the size of my entire isaak. I mean it was incredible. And i realized in that moment i was ten times higher than i ever been in my entire life.

"You cover politics for Oregon public broadcasting. Something very strange is happening in your state capitol. Right now, could you tell us what exactly that is? He yes. So the Oregon Senate Republicans here have actually fled, our state, and our apparently in Idaho, or Montana, or other states in order to avoid a vote on a pretty sweeping climate change Bill. It's a cap and trade Bill, the Republicans here, there in the super minority, and it's really one of the only maneuvers that they have to gain leverage over the majority party, the state constitution here requires that twenty members be present to have a quorum on the Senate floor in order for them to do business, there, eighteen Democrats, so they need to Republican members to show up in order to vote on bills. This Bill has long been a big democratic priority. Republicans have voiced concerns about it for a long time. They felt like negotiations were not. Well, so rather than vote on it, they have fled the state while Republicans on the run. Yes..
