Newt Gingrich: McCarthy Outmaneuvered Biden on Debt Ceiling Talks
"You're going to lose if the other side has the courage to stand firm. And the fact is that for over 100 days, McCarthy kept saying, and he went to the news media, he got more press coverage. If you go back and look at it, it's amazing how clear he was in communicating through the media despite their liberal bias because he just kept saying over over, and you know, we want to get this solved. And the key there was that the House Republican Conference actually passed a debt ceiling bill with real reforms. And therefore, the Senate Republicans, to my great shock, came out and said we are for McCarthy. And Mitch McConnell, who negotiated many of these deals, said, I'm not in this. This is McCarthy's opportunity. We're going to back McCarthy. And that in put a him position, and the reason I think this really matters in the long run, Mark, is if the center of gravity in Washington becomes the House Republicans, they are the most conservative group in the city, more much conservative than the Senate and obviously dramatically more conservative than the Biden White House. Now the question be will between the investigation process and the effort that they're going to put into the appropriations bills. Can they build on this? I tell everybody, if the debt ceiling was the final deal, I would have voted no. But if it's the first step in setting up a rhythm of winning, we keep so getting more and more goodies, then it's a very important yes. And I say that because if you read, the Mark, majority, you'll figure out, you know, we didn't jump to a balanced budget. We had three years of constant work, gradually inch by inch, getting Clinton in a position where a once balanced budget became possible. I think in this case, I don't think Biden's going to last three years. So the question is, can we get through 2023 2024 and be in a great position in January of 25 with a Republican president, Republican House, Republican Senate, to really drive dramatic, bold, deep
Newt Gingrich: 'A New Kind of Campaigning' Displayed by Ronald Reagan
"Lincoln's farewell address in January 1989, he says very clearly, these great victories weren't mine. These great victories were yours. It was your voice, your calling, your involvement, you the American people. And so we tried to return to model, that big ideas in the Contract with America, that were all 70 % or more in popularity, willingness to fight over the ideas. People forget, you know, this wasn't a picnic. closed We the federal government twice, once for 26 days. We were in a knockdown, some drag out brawl. And I always laugh at the media that says all this really hurt the Republicans. We became the first re -elected majority since 1928, after we closed the government. And the reason was because people thought we were being principled, and people thought that we were serious. We weren't normal politicians. In many ways the strength that Trump brought, in the sense that he wasn't just a regular politician. And I think that my goal is to get Republicans to understand that the consultant class doesn't understand the American people, doesn't respect them, and doesn't study issues, and they make a living out of running junk negative commercials that weaken the whole country. What you need is a much more Reagan -style popular appeal, which can be very tough with your opponent, by the way. Reagan beat the tar out of Jimmy Carter, but it was positive, it wasn't negative. Don't, don't up hang Newt, we want to keep you for another segment here. The book is March to the Majority. it You can get at Amazon .com, order it now, it'll show up tomorrow morning.

Newt Gingrich: Previewing New Book 'March to the Majority'
"As a playbook, because March of the Majority lays out how we negotiated with Bill Clinton and aroused public opinion, so that we got welfare reform, the largest single conservative reform in our lifetime. We have the largest capital gains tax cut in history, launching an entire extraordinary period of entrepreneurial growth. We cut regulations dramatically, helping small businesses, and we balanced the federal budget for four consecutive years for the only time in your lifetime. So there are a lot of lessons, we didn't do this because we were lucky, we did it because we worked very hard. We learned over 16 a year period, from 1978 to 1994, what worked and what didn't work. And in March, the majority, I'm giving people a chance to learn, in a free society, The what principles are the that work, how do you put together a majority, and then how do you use that majority to get the policy changes you want. That's why I think March the majority is very relevant for today, it's a history book. And do you get the sense that the Republicans in the House, McCarthy and others, are following the game plan pretty much? Well, I certainly think in the negotiations with Biden on debt the ceiling, there's no question that McCarthy outmaneuvered Biden dramatically. Biden thought he was going to get a debt ceiling with no cuts, no reforms. And it turned out that only only one out of every four Americans favored that. One of the projects I work on is called the America's New Majority the next day. and people can see it at americasnewmajorityproject .com. It was clear that only one out of every four Americans favored Biden's new majority.

Markets Mixed as Debt Ceiling Bill Could Threaten Liquidity
"Bitcoin, Ether, and other top tokens are down, and markets trading mixed, but mostly lower. Traders of risk assets broadly, though, are paying close attention to ongoing movement towards a multi -year suspension of the U .S. debt ceiling in a deal that has both Democrat and Republican members of the Business As Usual club declaring victory. The agreement passed the House last night with majority support and now heads to the where it's expected to pass as well, before being signed into law by U .S. President Joe Biden. You might think that with uncertainty around that threat and default likely to soon be over, that risk assets would be hopeful, but that's not exactly how things may work out. Once a suspension is signed into law, a few things are expected to happen. First, the U .S. Treasury will have to refill its almost completely depleted Treasury General account, also known as the TGA, which means selling some $500 billion worth of debt into the financial system, which means they will be extracting that much cash. This is likely to hit risk assets in particular, as they tend to be more sensitive to liquidity conditions than safer plays such as bonds and many groups of equities, macroanalyst Noel Acheson said, continuing, The Treasury drawing down its account at the Fed was one of the tailwinds for the market earlier this year. As money that would normally just sit there was put into the economy in the form of government expenditures, Acheson explained. She continued, Now the reverse is likely to happen. The government needs to replenish the account balance by issuing debt which will draw liquidity out of the market and back into the Treasury's

House debt ceiling vote nears to avert default with Biden and McCarthy both confident of passage

Does McCarthy Have the Votes to Pass the New Debt Ceiling Plan?
"And you can roll right through to the radio show. That's up to you. But there is a lot going on. One quick quick note. The House is meeting ahead of a vote on a debt deal, which is supposed to happen shortly. I am really bad stuff. That the Republicans in this case, amazingly, I don't want to indict them all. You know, Mike Lee and Rand Paul and others have been speaking out about the debt deal. That the Republicans have again managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Listen, man, I'm not into pylons, but. It's just so pathetic sometimes. We already limit, save, grow, which was not a great deal, but was a better deal than the one the on table now. We already passed it. The House already passed it? Yes, it was already passed. So, why are we negotiating against ourselves? Exactly. Hell, even Nancy Mace Ace is, you know, whipping against this thing. Nancy Mace. So, what I'm hearing now is that because McCarthy's having trouble getting votes for this deal, is which not a good deal. It's not the most horrible deal and we don't have the Senate. We don't have the White House. I'm a realist. I'm not dumb. I know a lot of these Republican, oh, that guy bought Geno as a flamethrower. Really? Have you ever run for office? No, you haven't.

Ahead of House debt ceiling vote, Biden shores up Democrats and McCarthy scrambles for GOP support
"The president and House speaker are scrambling for support ahead of a house debt ceiling vote. The debt limit and budget cuts package that squeaked through the House rules committee on a 7 to 6 vote is headed to the U.S. House. President Biden and speaker Kevin McCarthy are trying to assemble a centrist bipartisan coalition to get it passed and avert a potentially disastrous U.S. default in less than a week. We'll pass the bill. Speaker McCarthy is of all the congresses in the past. You're going to add up all the money that they rescinded and add them together. This is higher than that. 218 votes are needed in a 435 member House, the deal faces opposition from hard right Republicans who say the budget cuts don't go far enough. Trillions and trillions of dollars in debt for crumbs for a pittance. Representative Scott Perry is the chairman of the freedom caucus. This deal fails, fails completely.

"Punchbowl news of a startup organization started doing something called, they call the canvas, and they got the contact info for a ton of chiefs of staff, legislative directors, comms, directors, the most senior staff in Congress, and it is a pretty scientifically sound grouping of Democrats and Republicans. And I think 2021, they asked Republican staff, who is the most important conservative voice, not an elected official, not a politician. And Tucker Carlson was far and away. The number one most important conservative voice to House Republican staffers and I think Senate Republican staffers were involved in that as well. But Sean Hannity was a distant second. Tucker is a commanding force among House Republicans in particular. His he waded into the House majority whip race late last year. He was trying to influence the outcome and steer House Republicans in a secret ballot race. He was trying to steer them to vote for Jim banks who finished second in the race, who also happens to employ Tucker Carlson's son, like this is the sort of thing, this is a mid tier leadership race and Carlson was weighing in trying to influence the outcome of this. Carlson is a commanding figure for House Republicans. Very not so much for Senate Republicans, but House Republicans really do just listen to him in a way that is only comparable probably to Rush Limbaugh in 1995, and he was a commanding figure. And that is who Tucker is today. As some Republicans turn on Tucker Carlson and say, uh uh, that was not how it happened, man. Where does Kevin McCarthy then fit in? Are those Republicans looking over at Kevin McCarthy and saying, and on top of that, you shouldn't have given him the footage. Are they criticizing him at all? No. They're sort of shrugging their shoulders, they're trying to avoid directly criticizing McCarthy because as much as they disagree with his decision, they look at it as if, you know, well, we still need him to govern, we still need him to have some sort of control of what goes on. So let's not criticize him. And let's not undermine him. They just sort of know that this is the price they have to pay in order to have a speaker. Kevin Kramer told my colleague Liz Goodwin about McCarthy, he referred to it as, quote, political calculations. As he tries to govern, he said, quote, if making these concessions to his right Flank gives him room to maneuver as speaker, it's probably fine, maybe it gives him some maneuvering room and I don't dismiss how important that is. Which is a pretty, you know, a pretty naked admission of, I know he's just trying to appease Tucker to try and get him off his back. And if that works and, you know, maybe we can get a debt ceiling deal or something like that down the road, then maybe this was worth it. Is this normal kind of behavior? How do you characterize this? No, there was ten years ago, John Boehner was the speaker, and he was frequently being undermined by his right Flank, and so he had a lot of friends in the Senate back then. Who genuinely, really, really liked him and they had served in the house with him. And they would say similar things to us, usually off the record or on background. And they would explain to us that they loved Boehner and they were trying to work to help him ensure him up and try and lobby some of those hard right House members to make things work. They wouldn't go on the record and undermine him by saying he's really weak and he has to make all these concessions. How badly does Kevin McCarthy want this job? 20 of his colleagues have just publicly disavowed him loudly and again and again. So to win them back, McCarthy is going to have to give them something real. Not more airy promises, which he specializes in. He's going to have to give them actual concessions. And polymerase you lastly, what do you think Tucker Carlson is about? What do you think he wants? He wants attention and opportunity. I moved to Washington, D.C. in the 1990s. At which point, Tucker Carlson was really an incredibly thoughtful, smart conservative writer. It was sort of profiles of Texas governor George W. Bush and those types of stories back then that anyone liberal, independent, hardcore conservative, whatever. You wanted to read because it was so thoughtful. It's incredible to think, but you know, he had shows on CNN, he did a part of the remake of CNN's crossfire. But they were good and smart. And that got him into the Fox News. Universe. And then when Fox News imploded with a couple different people going down around me too allegations, including Bill O'Reilly, who used to be the number one cable news host in America in the 8 o'clock hour for Fox, they thrust Tucker into that role at 8 o'clock and at that point it was all about, you know, seizing the opportunity and going after as much outrage as possible. And the only way to keep generating that 3 million viewers a night was to keep generating outrage and it was no longer about thoughtful, wonderfully written pieces and profiles of conservatives, it was just about anger and keeping the viewer. And that's because he just wants to keep his audience. He's really a sad, pathetic character in 21st century American media whose story arc just tells you so much about the media environment of today.

The best top of our game right now. This is I want to go back to Christina Greer for one minute. It's up on its hilarious. She says, it's not about the 80,000 per trip to transfer the migrants in New York City. These racists don't mind paying any amount of money to get them out of Texas and bring them to New York City. Because they're racist, but was Joe Biden racist for putting them on a plane in the dark of night secretly, and flying in New York City when no one was watching. Yeah. That's okay. I also thought you guys wanted to help people. You guys love helping people. Give them opportunities, right? Oh, just not in New York City though. But what's the difference between the Biden administration, secretly flying in illegal immigrants, New York City, then the Texas governor who's putting illegals on a bus. Yeah. They're both getting New York. They're just taking different modes of transportation is it that you're not getting like peanuts in a coffee and on an airplane or that you're taking a bus. So edge is pure politics and hypocrisy at its worst, but I'm not surprised. Yeah, it's really sad to be honest with you. I think the three guests we heard today. There's really not much optimism right in people. We had a chance, Mike hateful, and I had to talk to sheriff Daniels a couple of weeks ago. He's pissed off. He's annoyed. He's had it with the border situation, right? There's not a lot of optimism and stuff. The more I read about these midterms, you know, I hope I hope it's a red wave. We'll see soon. I think the right is angered about the FBI raid on Donald Trump. We'll see what comes out of that, but if it's a simple question, are you better off now than you were two years ago when Joe Biden became president? It's a very simple question. And I think, you know, pundits and people in politics tend to muddle it a little bit. Let's focus on whether it's abortion or gun control or whatever the issue is. It's a very simple question. Is your family better off now than you were two years ago? And if the answer is no, vote Republican. Yeah, that's right. And I hope I hope people do.

If you don't believe in 57 varieties of gender, get out. I mean, I mean, she's totally lost face with reality, but that's what the Democrats have become. All of them. They've lost touch with reality. And that's what this is what we have running out of government. And unfortunately, the masses of the Democrat NASA's are brain dead and they will vote for her because they've been told over and over that people who respect life, God, country, freedom, faith, family. We're evil for some reason. You know, that we just want to live our life and be left alone. But we're evil. So if you ain't want to believe that, God bless them. Dave, can I ask you one question about this? Because take the politics out of it, let's say, for a second, right? At some point though, we have to expect people like her or anybody in her or any of her cronies I'll say, you have to be able to do basic math and to Stefan's point. Let's say you lose 2.65 million people, right? That's going to have a major tax consequence. Let's say some of those 2.65 million are business owners like myself or Mike and Glen or whoever. What are you going to do to replace that? You can't keep bringing in people that don't pay taxes or that don't do anything for the system, right? What are you going to do? Well, first off, last may I was in my hotel at Albany and a couple of Democrats from there I was talking to him now. These are communist Democrats, but I get along with them.

"Republicans basically my entire adult life is that they'll vote from this religious conscious, you know? Thinking that it's morally superior, but then it goes to the abortion stuff too. Well then we'll get there. Then they refuse to even promise anything. Which is one of the weirdest things as a politician. As a Republican, you're not really voting for anything. They're not doing anything for you unless it's religious based. A think about that. If these people are legislating just from a religious base, that means that if you're not religious, you can go fuck yourself. And the Republicans have not been shy about telling you that. Right. Like throughout their careers, they've basically been like, oh, you don't believe in God, you can go fuck yourself because you're on American. Kinda. Kinda. Yeah? In so many words. In so many words, for sure. But you know, it brings back up to that point where 20 9, 29 words. Our Republican, you know, Supreme Court Justice has passed also that teachers are now allowed to lead children in their in school. But it doesn't give a, there's a heavy implication of Christian only. Having implications. No, of course, because if anybody started money, the second that a Muslim teacher is in the middle of the morning. You have to pray to Allah. I'm Muslim. So I'm going to teach you how to pray the way that I do. It takes one kid to go home and tell their parents today, you know. Today I learned what an infidelity is. Right. I will, okay. And see, that's the perception of how it would be, right? Thank you for playing the stereotype. Of course. But it would be like, you know, today misses Smith, right? Let's just say that, you know, she whatever, right? She's Muslim and it doesn't matter if she's white black, whatever, but she taught us how to pray to a lot today, right? Like how I'm supposed to and stuff like that. Fucking outrage food, dude. Could you imagine? You flip that scenario where there's maybe a couple of Muslim kids in a classroom that's now being led by this white lady praying to God, right? They go home and tell their parents about it. The parents go to the school and say, hey, this makes us uncomfortable. Right? The second the school doesn't make her stop and condones that teachers, religious preference over their students, they immediately become a private school. You can't do that, right? They would immediately have to lose their funding. It puts or fire that fucking teacher for discriminating. Right. Because religious discrimination is definitely discrimination by law. Right. But that's the only thing that they could do, but then that teacher could come forward and state that based on this new Supreme Court ruling that she's allowed to lead her students in rare. And these kids not participating is, they're refusing to do something that's part of the curriculum or something like that, right? You don't ever doubt the power of an angry white woman who believes in Jesus in this country, man. They change, she had a lot and not most of the time not for the better. All it takes is a proper care and they'll rip motherfuckers to shreds. You know? And I can see it happening. But we have no choice other than to fire that feature. They have to. Yeah, yeah. And I don't know, risk closing down, I guess. Or have to go privately funded or something like that because and then what does that cause? So now you have a coalition of teachers who are like, oh, well, Carol got fired because she was leading her kids and praying class and these kids are the reason that she got fired. So now you have these two Muslim kids who are now not only pariahs because they're Muslim, so they more than likely don't look white, right? But now they also are the reason why this teacher got fired because they complained to their parents about it. It creates an entire their begging for more conflict and more radicalization to be totally honest with you. This is the first time this is what's called indoctrination. We're going to force our views on you. No matter what you say about it. And then this is why the abortion thing is so big. Like they're forcing their small minority religious view on the entirety of the country and that is fucking wrong. And I'm not talking about the people who voted for talking about the fucking Supreme Court Justices who know exactly what the hell they're doing and they're doing it for political points. Like fucking spineless cowards. All of you Supreme Court Justices are flat out cowards. I can't even believe that you would go against the constitution like this, no matter how you want to phrase it, no matter how you want to frame the argument, what you did is take away a right that was given to people. That is a fact you took away a right. You said that you're not smart enough or you are not allowed to have this right. And ultimately, you know, I very, very sternly believe that as men, right? Well, okay, not even. Are your reproductive organs on the inside or the outside of you? If your answer is anything other than they are. What's a woman? And that's what I'm saying. If you're reproductive organs are on the outside of you, you don't get to talk about what the other people who have their reproductive organs on the inside of them get to do with that. Otherwise, those ones should become more powerful and then demand that everybody who has their reproductive organs on their outside after 30 has to get their nuts to help coal the population. Right? How does that make you feel I buy my choice, right? I don't want to get my nuts lift up. Well, too bad. The women who are in charge say that to make it so that there are no more forced abortions. This is their answer in their compromise to that. That's interesting. You are prime breeding age from 18 to 29. The day you turn 30 you're a unit. That's not fair, but that wouldn't really matter, right? If the women were making decisions for us, they wouldn't really give a shit because that's how they would handle that chick. Fine, you don't want any more abortions. We can't have abortions. This is the compromise that we're going to make. Yeah, but I think it's more of a religious argument than that though. It is, but it doesn't matter that way more than that, and a feminist argument. Well, they have no argument other than religious. None of them care about children. Not a single one of them cares about children. It's fine.

"Bill. And so i think there's just debate about what trump me and in fact were these economic questions central to his success so they are a group of people who say no it wasn't it was really more the attitudinal and the cultural stuff they point out that within the counties trump one actually it was the wealthier people in those counties even if they were poor counties generally supported trump. And that really bay are i. I would say the critics say they are opportunistically characterizing this as an economic phenomenon when it was more of a social and cultural phenomenon got it in your piece you write about something called hyphenated capitalism which some critics of common good capitalism are using as a way to diminish it. What does that mean. That is a term. Actually that always seen nikki. Haley the former un ambassador us and it is interesting. I think you see people like her. She's come out of the gates swinging against these common good capitalist. I is sue. Because she believes this will be a central issue in the twenty twenty four campaign and she wants to position herself early but they they say like if you put any word before capital common good capitalism watered-down down capitalism. They say capitalism is good like. We don't need to modify it with any any hyphen and we should on apology. Unapologetically advocate for and defend our capitalist system. So i think it's in the same way that has and rubio. They will refer to free market fundamentalism. I think the the term that the free marketeers would use for them is like proponents of hyphenated capitalism. Gone it is this all just a war of the words. No i think there are real. Substantive disagreements on the main disagreement is like is economic growth should economic growth. Be the goal of economic policy. Or should we be pursuing other ends like should we gear economic policy towards towards family formation or towards national security. That's actually the aspect. That i think is the least controversial given the past few years adding more agreement on both right in the last like we need to take china into account when it comes to our economic policy. Are there any sort of interesting fundamental. big picture. questions commoditised debate. I think like well conservatives in the republican party in the same way that we still don't know quite where the land on trade but like free trade was a central hill on the right for a time will will capitalism in the free market continued to be a central part of. You know what it needs to be a conservative. The other thing we haven't talked about tara is cast and rubio like bear supportive of a stronger labor movement in the united states. And that's that's a pretty controversial idea on the right I'd say they they didn't that. The right. should be not working to break labor unions but to reform them and so there are real like substantive issues hiding underneath like the sort of cute word. Play is not reflective of rubio's constituents in florida or not just something that he is sort of taken on and sort of pushed himself. I'm not sure actually. I think rubio's a young ambitious politician who we saw Embrace slightly different set of issues when he campaigned as a. You know an insurgent tea party candidate than he did on the twenty sixteen campaign trail and this is sort of like an evolution of impart part and has to be like what they think is going to be successful politically right. They are trying to figure out a nay. Stay would say. They're advocating policies of benefit the american worker. So they've you. Immigration is something that because foreigners will come to the us and work for lower wages. That hurts american workers and it would help american workers to have a higher minimum wage. So they're very focused on like they are. They are nationalists which is in itself controversial. Like those things are controversial. People don't agree that like foreign workers. Bring down the wages of american workers. There's there's certainly not agreement on that it does feel like it has. This debate has some impact on how the republicans fight against the reconciliation bill as well cracked. That is also good question. I mean but it would make. It seems to me like if you're pro labor you wouldn't be attacking that end of it or believe in investing in the economy. I don't know it just like any like are there. They're all republicans that are in support of paid leave right and for sure and i those would be probably the common good republicans is that the common good capitalists yet. It doesn't quite breakdown like there. Is some disagreement. Like you know tom cotton. Yes he sports a higher minimum wage. But he's like a free marketeer and lots of other things and so it doesn't quite break down that way but you can see some of the ideas of the common good capitals like trickling down even if people adopt them piecemeal rather than wholesale caught it. But i guess it just means like the lines of attack against democrats are going to be fractured within the republican party as well. I think that's true because they can like the common good capitalist find agreement with democrats on on several things. And you'll notice. I think like ro khanna. The left-wing congressman from california has has done a bunch of joint conversations and events with cast in american compass and there are others on on the left to and i think that's one of the fears of like the free marketeers is that the comet capitalists like ultimately are making common cause with people who You mentioned the bernie trump overlap. Who are like on the more socialist side of the political spectrum on it. Do you think marco rubio will run again in twenty twenty four. I don't know. I kind of hope he does. Because i think it would be quite interesting to see three floridians. Ron if we get rubio rick scott and sand us what you forgot trump though before the thing is if trump runs were accolate you know. He's going to clear the field probably so we may not get those other ones but yes three.

"How do they line up on the two sides at this policy fight orrin cast is somebody who most listeners probably haven't heard of but Somebody who started the first right of center think tank called american compass that is devoted to advocating for the government to get more involved rather than less involved in economic policy and cass was the domestic policy adviser. He was like twenty eight years old on mitt romney's twenty twelve presidential campaign and has since developed relationships with other politicians on the right including jd. Vance in ohio. And marco rubio and florida so those are people who i think you could call accolades or advocates for the common good capitalism view. He asks them they'll tell you that. They view their intellectual opponents as by members of the wall street journal editorial board which is sort of been a pillar of conservative economic policy on the right up folks like pennsylvania. Senator pat toomey who have been. Who's been an influential economic voice. And i you know scholars at the american enterprise institute. So which side would you say has more power in the party right now. I think that the free marketeers are like. They remain majority view in the party. And i would define that you as if you talk to. People like to me Or or others. They'll say like the free market system is good in and of itself. When i talked to me for this piece he told me like. Capitalism is for the common good and there's a belief that gearing economic policies towards growth through tax cuts and other means is what benefits families communities and the country. Let's ivan to the politics of this. Which side he think is an easier sell for republicans politically. I don't actually think we know yet. Trump was a confusing figure because he talked to write a common good capitalist or a populous. That trump wasn't quite in the common good and talking about communities and families but he talked like a populous but then governed much more like a a reaganite a traditional supply side leader with the exception of trade policy that's a pretty big exception but trump's protectionist trade policies advocacy for protectionist reports was super controversial and that a lot of resistance on the right and so i think what we have now is an opponents of the common good capitalist new say yeah voters might like particularly the sort of middle class lower middle class multi-race the new multi-racial coalition year. Toss about a lot on the right. They might like the way that this stuff sounds on the campaign trail.

"Entertained. Some of the common good capitalist ideas and then the people who are sort of the upping coming up firebrands on the right the ohio senate candidate jd. Vance our can actually fix it and fox news host tucker carlson. He leading turned a lot of heads during the democratic presidential primary. When he said you know. Elizabeth warren economic policy makes a lot of sets. Obvious sense she sounds like donald trump at his best. I did remember during the first trump campaign that in polling. They found that a lot of the voters sort of this populist of voters that they not only were interested in trump. But they also could have voted for bernie. It was a toss up yet. it's really interesting. I think the previous generation of republican leaders. The paul ryan's of the world. The jack kemp's. They made their names at talking about an advocating for traditional conservative free-market policies and trump seemed to expose a fallacy in their thinking which is that voters. the right may be more. Socially conservative than they are economically conservative and ryan and others had always lead with the economics of and actually shied away from the social stuff like that super comfortable talking about gay marriage or other social issues like that. But i think trump turn that thinking on its head when he made immigration. You know rubio and paul ryan. They supported immigration reform trump. Turn that on. Its head when he embraced that is a central plank of his platform. And said i'm not going to reform entitlements. And i think people started to begin thinking about what does it mean for the republican party if back through that their voters are more socially conservative than like economically conservative. Can you give me the breakdown of the two sides on this policy fighting. What is common good capitalism. Great question adding be key part of that is to define what is the common good and common good capitalism because when you describe it i think it sounds noncontroversial but when you get down to brass tacks and talk about what. What is the common good that these this group of people thinks. Our economic policy should be geared towards. It's three things. One is the formation and development of strong families. The second is the support of local communities in the third is the strength of the country at large those are really broad things and defining them controversial yet conservatives and liberals would not agree on what is a strong family. What is a closed community look like and particularly on the national front like saying we they are protectionist so we should have an industrial policy that favours particular industries so we are not dependent on other countries. I think that is controversial on the right. It's so vague. It could be interpreted in so many different ways. These phrases that there you say. I agree with that. The challenge is and what american compass or in the rubio's are doing is taking those broad principles and saying what does it mean as a policy and what we've seen like the outgrowth this our support for increasing federal minimum wage men mitt. Romney probably somebody who would have thought who. Come out in support of that. But ot and tom cotton Support the federal minimum wage. They've talked a lot about instituting. Protectionist policies to compete with china and i think that did get a boon from the corona virus. Where your idea that we need to have our own supply chains that are protected from the global political hunts certainly gain traction okay so you mentioned a few names. Like orrin casts and rubio and mitt.

"But the and if we were lucky enough to get to the discovery process one of the things that would come out of this because the reason he was kicked off of those social media platforms is that he incited an insurrection on january six and and The defense attorneys for all of these companies would would have a field day probing any communication at the white house level or the at among trump's political operatives. Not only on january six but in the months before as they establish a fact pattern around whether trump did premeditate. In addition of fomenting the insurrection on january six they will never wanna get there when we got into discovery on our lawsuit. Trump ended up trying to settle and our attorneys rejected his efforts to settle the case. Because at that point we had our hands on his tax returns and his business records. And we're able to use those things that oppose him and nobody in this current lawsuit would ever want to get to that stage with him so at that point. Trump just dropped the lawsuit. Which is what he would do here. I mean the the audience has to understand that. And i think many do is that if you file a lawsuit against anyone you have immediately made yourself available to be subpoenaed by the other side to testify under oath in a deposition whenever they want that to happen and of course trump would have to avoid that at all costs in this case so he would just drop his case when those subpoenas arrived if the court led him if the court lead of in our case the court. Didn't you know the court ended up dismissing the case but he still had to go through discovery so he loses control of the process and they ended up as he always does shooting himself in the foot with these kind of things because he's jumped into it for the publicity value without thinking about the long term consequences of this kind of legal buffoonery o'brien who beat donald trump in court when donald trump sued him.
