Romney: Plan to challenge election 'egregious ploy' that 'dangerously threatens' country
"A growing number of Republican lawmakers back in President Trump's repeated efforts to overturn the 2020 election results today, Senator Ted Cruz announced the coalition of 11 senators and Senators elect who will vote against Democratic electors from states where the president has alleged widespread voter fraud. Those lawmakers joined Missouri Senator Josh Holly, who was the first to announce his intentions to object to the state tallies during the upcoming joint session of Congress. In their statement announcing their intentions today, those 11 lawmakers said in part quote Congress should immediately appoint an electoral commission to conduct an emergency 10 Day audit of the election results in the disputed states. Senators went on to say they quote intend to vote to reject the electors from disputed states. Until that emergency 10 Day audit is completed. The announcement being met with strong pushback from Democrats, including Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal, who tweeted quote this pathetic on the pathetic, opportunistic stunt is an attack on our democracy. It is un American and unconscionable. Votes have been counted, recounted, Certified and all challenges, totally discredited time to govern and get things done. Even some Republicans expressing their disapproval with those 11 senators. Utah Senator Mitt Romney, releasing a statement that read, in part, quote the egregious ploy to reject electors, man hands the political ambitions of some but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic. The congressional power to reject electors is reserved for the most extreme and unusual circumstances. These are far from it.

Biden introduces his choice for defense secretary, Lloyd Austin
"President elect Joe Biden once retired general Lloyd Austin to be his defense secretary, not A post he sought. I sought him. Austin would be the first African American to serve in the position. But could his nomination face some trouble in the Senate and joining us live from Capitol Hill? Double d. T. O p. S Mitchell Miller. Mitch General Austin is very well respected. So why are there questions about whether the Senate would confirm it? Well, Shawn and Hillary. It goes back to the history of the defense secretary being in a civilian position, and the so called seven year rule that if a military officer is tapped for that position, they need to have been retired from the military for at least that long. Austin retired four years ago after a distinguished military career of more than 40 years and included a major command in Iraq. Tenure is the head of the U. S. Central Command. But several lawmakers say it's important to maintain a civilian in that position. The ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, Rhode Island Jack Reed had given in on a waiver for General James Mattis under President. Trump said he wouldn't support one in the future. He is now wrestling with this. Others have said they'll oppose the waiver, including senators Elizabeth Warren Richard Blumenthal, who's on the Armed Services Committee and Jon Tester of Montana. But if the House and the Senate grant a waiver, which they both have to do, he'll likely still have plenty of votes to be confirmed. Hey, Mitch, who are the other potential candidates? Lawmakers might have preferred to Austin. Well, one of them would have been the first woman to serve as defense secretary Michelle Florida who's held various positions at the Pentagon and is very well respected. The House Armed Services Committee chair Adam Smith made it clear she was his first choice. Another candidate who had been talked about a lot was former Homeland Security Secretary Jay Johnson.

Senate Judiciary Committee sends Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination to full Senate as Democrats boycott vote
"And I'm Noelle King. Good morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee has advanced the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. Mr Chairman, the votes for 12 years and 10 not present motion is passed. Thank you. All 12 Republican senators voted for her nomination. The committee's 10 Democrats did not show up. They were boycotting the proceedings. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzales has been following this story and the proceedings. Good morning, Claudia. Good morning. No. Well so fairly short today. This morning. What happened? Yes, it all went by very quickly, all said, and done and under 12 minutes. This is a very traumatic Shift from what we saw last week with hours and hours of testimony at least 20 hours of questioning Barrett by the members on the panel, both Republicans and Democrats, But today Democrats boycotted they did not show up. Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee sidestepped that no show to move barrettes nomination forward to the full Senate. Democrats said they were boycotting because they wanted to highlight the damage that bear it would do to healthcare, reproductive and voting rights and the fact that the vote took place amid a presidential election. And this is one battle. Democrats say perhaps the lose, but they're looking to win a bigger war. Graham alluded to that when he talked about the next vote on the Senate floor. Let's take a listen They started this On May For up to May that be a 60 vote requirement in the Senate today, and he's referring to the Senate filibuster there. This is a requirement of 60 votes that was once needed to approve a nomination like barrettes. But the filibuster was eliminated in 2013 as Democrats struggled to move their judges forward when they control the chamber with the tight margin, So that's what Graham is referencing, and he added later that perhaps this will be addressed again in the future. However, now that the Senate is controlled by Republicans with tight margins, they're able to push through barrettes nomination with just 51 votes. It's a preview of the battles to calm that this will go on after barrettes nomination this conversation even as far as she goes to the floor to be considered by the full Senate, and we see if Democrats ultimately changed the dynamics of power in the Senate or the presidency through the upcoming election day. How did Democrat to respond today? They didn't just say nothing right? Yes, there had been rumors for days that Democrats could boycott these hearings. They were facing a lot of pressure from outside groups to even skip out on the hearings last week questioning their it. But they decided not to do that last week. Instead, they did it to Dae. So later yesterday, they confirmed that they would all not show today they're empty seats were filled instead with images of Americans who have used the affordable care act. This is a case that could become it could be considered before the court next month. And so this is one critical issue They've been highlighting all along. They also held a news conference after the vote. This was led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on the steps of the Capitol is take a listen. The nomination of Amy Cockney Barrel. Is the most illegitimate process I have ever witnessed in the Senate, and her potential confirmation will have dire, dire consequences. For the Senate. With his Supreme Court and our entire country for generations to come. So this was the theme they've been driving through this entire process. Barrett will shift the court to a 63 conservative majority, and they say she's a foe to the affordable care act. The landmark abortion rights case, Roe v. Wade, and she could play a role. If there's a dispute in the election. This is activated activated opposition as well. There were protesters outside the capital. Speaking against this nomination, this resulted in about a half a dozen arrests so far today I spoke to Judiciary Committee Democrat Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut yesterday, said the watchword for them is no more business. As usual. He and the other members have been driving home this point that this is a sham process. It's not normal. It's not writing Americans should see it for what it is and probably see more of this in the coming days, because there is so much acrimony over this nomination. Yes, exactly So many reasons. We're in the midst of a pandemic. We're rushing this through in 30 days, one of the fastest, we've seen the fight over health care. And, of course, you know the division between Republicans and Democrats. Really. Exemplified by President Trump pushing this forward and so there's a long history as well of these fights over the Supreme Court in the controversy surrounding these nominations if we go back to 2016, Democrats try to move forward. President Obama's nominee at the time. This is Judge Merrick. Garland and Republicans refused because they said they were so close to an election months away. But here we are now people are early voting and they're pushing this through. So this is set into motion a series of debates to calm and we're even hearing about it from the Democratic nominee Joe Biden this morning. We understand he told 60 minutes that he's going to create A study a commission to bipartisan commission to study whether they should add more seats to the courts a lot more to come here, including next week, right what happens then? So tomorrow, the nomination for Barrett actually will reach the full Senate floor. It's going to be followed by some procedural votes on Friday, as well as on Sunday. In between, we're going to see a lot of debate an argument back and forth. But the rial final moment for this will come Monday when the full Senate will submit their votes for bear to confirm or vote against her nomination to the Supreme Court. NPR congressional reporter Claudio Gonzalez. Thanks, Claudia. Thanks for having me

And you know, he he's been he should not be talking about anyone misleading lying of that nature. Richard Blumenthal is the same guy that he was in Vietnam. He was. Go back to Eric Holder. Eric Holder said that he was an activist attorney general nobody asks for him to step down. Too though. They censored. Yeah. The weepy at the Republicans. I was there when that happened. Then the other thing was here's a guy that was part of operation. Fast and furious US four patrol. No one party side where Loretta Lynch meets with Bill Clinton on a secret tarmac meeting that. Luckily, a report found out about on in Arizona, while his wife Baylor Clinton was under investigation. Loretta Lynch to resigned. So this is just over hyperbolic politicize rhetoric. Bob muller. Wait till now to talk about his anxious to come out the evening before the testimony of mister bar that he could have found that as soon as before pay summer came up political fear, and I'll tell you to this to me Mahler said, I'm just the facts guy, you know, A G A G man, just looking through to do the best possible way of investigating. I think he just got exposed. I don't he leaks out to the press or Weisman. Does I am very upset about the way it was portrayed before? We actually got the report this is the interim period, we got the report with sa- bestseller. Go download it on your ipad right now or your phone and then make your own conclusions. I don't either Torney general Boorda interpret for me because he didn't mislead me as an American let alone of someone lucky enough to be on the air. I got to inform you because you're probably not by television. If you guys driving right now, the attorney general as as walked into the committee room, all smiles and. This is to me opportunity to actually to me instead of playing in the quarterfinals you playing in the finals why even go through the other seven game series. And that's why liked the bars going out there today. He had there are mostly Republicans with is going to be Democrats. And unless the house backs off letting their staffers do the questioning there won't be any more hearings tomorrow with the house about to be subpoenaed. That'd be a row protracted situation. So I look forward to this today. No, I think that if you go back to the press conference that he had the redacted report was released. I mean, he handled the press very well. He's a he's a to the fact counted person he understands the law, and he's not afraid of anyone. And so I think that if you have those people on the Democrats, I'll try that this political grandstanding for to elevate their presidential campaign. He's gonna crush them. That's what you'll see today. Listen, I just understand that you were just reelected. Congratulations. One of the directors at the NRA for a three year term what's going on with one of the most powerful groups in the country. We see Oliver North says he was forced to resign. We hear about improprieties at the highest level. We know that they're under attack by most most of the blue states in this country and governors Cuomo. So tell us the state of the NRA right now. When you look at the NRA. It's not about individuals. But I believe that we have some organizational form Senator enough ain't that we need to do some hard looking at our leadership. And there was a bit of cronyism within the national association. Have a problem saying that and if other members, you know, get upset at this publicly and openly I'm responsible to the people that make the NRA. And that's why I was elected as a member could be there. I think that when you look at what has happened in Venezuela. The second amendment right that we had our constitution is very important because look at what has happened to the people that are being gunned down that being run over by military vehicles to Cubans have come into Russia's Chinese everybody else to keep them suppress. And so when governor Cuomo Michael Bloomberg Letitia James was attorney general there, they're your because the NRA corporative New York in eighteen seventy one they have their sights on association. There have been some issues with a management and financial for potential improprieties. And I think that we're going to do our best to clean that up. But the National Rifle Association is is not gonna be dead. It's not gonna go away because it wanted to individuals because it's made up of Americans are gonna come back and take some calls for just which referring to is the two thousand eleven Maduro, actually. You go child has took away everybody's guns. And now the forced to be staredown military, totally unarmed and defenseless and be run over by military vehicles. So that's that's what every gun owner talks about. Yeah. They will want citizens Brian. But now, they're subject, and you think about it when the British were marching inland on April nineteenth seventeen seventy five. They were going to destroy a weapons and armaments factor in concord, Massachusetts, we didn't have an army. We didn't have a country. We didn't have a federal government.

"On CNN last night. They had Mehdi Hassan columnist and presenter of to aljazeera shows. Linking the president only minutes after the slaughter in New Zealand to the slaughter and aljazeera host. CNN today had Abraham Cooper a radical who works for HAMAs front group called care knowing full. Well, what he would say, then they had the national director of care Nevada. A what? He too. Trashing the president of the United States. Then we had watch your heart are Lee, New York Times opinion writer on MSNBC today. That the shooter's racist ideology, quote has been mainstream by Republican elected officials. And links Trump to white supremacists. There were Dana bash on CNN today talking about how Trump his rhetoric riles up the nut jobs. Then they bring in this guy. Charlie dent, a former congressman a Republican, but one of the kooks, I believe he comes on CNN because he's a reliable trumpeter. And. He talks about Trump and the comments at Charlottesville. They're all lying about the comets at Charlottesville, which is why took the time to discuss them with you. And then a CNN brings in Senator Richard Blumenthal regular he sort of their Lindsey Graham, except this guy has a a head injury. And the Trump rhetoric is a factor in the New Zealand massacre. And this has gone on all last night. Late into the night early in the all day long all day long. This is why Trump despises the media because they deserve his wrath. They don't stand for the first amendment. The purpose of freedom of the press is to inform the American people to give us news. Not to hear every left wing wack job every ethnic front group or people to come on and make these allegations. He's wild outrageous allegations. And it came up again on CNN. John Berman dumb as a doorknob one of their anchors. But he ran into a buzzsaw this time. Adam king Zinger who's been very good lately. A Republican congressman cut nine go US for God that change people's hearts. Yeah. I have a question for you. It has God needs to change people's language. And I ask you that. Because this killer, apparently, a screed some people call it a manifesto said he is a supporter of President Trump as a symbol of white identity. Why would anyone see the fire the symbol of white? I think God needs to change people's hearts, and I beg. He does. He needs to change your language, but you cannot put this on President Trump. I'm not putting up President Trump. There's one man who pulled the trigger. Okay. Yeah. The person who is giving a sign of allegiance to president. Trump is the killer hearing calls may symbol of white identity. The language he uses in this manifesto is all about invaders all about invaders, which is similar language to the killer of the synagogue in. Pittsburgh. It's also language that President Trump using a campaign ad before. The just listen to the sky go on and on. Hell he relishes this. These two mass murderers one killing juice the other killing Muslims. Said they don't like Trump. Let's say they had said they like Barack Obama Bernie Sanders. Her Nancy Pelosi is this kind of propaganda. We beginning. Is this what we heard from that maniac who shot Steve Scalise and others? Two years ago in Alexandria, Virginia. And a baseball field is this the kind of media coverage that we got back, then of course, not. Going on and on and on about Bernie Sanders propaganda. No. Is this the same media that has protected antifa? Time and time and time again. Yes, it is. Go ahead. Means something to white supremacists around the world why? So I think again to make the connection of a president saying I'm concerned, for instance, with illegal immigration and says invaders but to save that. And then to go to a guy let's say says invaders since one is Eddie triggering word for somebody to go out murder. Forty-nine people. I mean, the insanity here. Absolute insanity here. Go ahead. Fifty people. He may make a connection and say President Trump smile that doesn't put it on President Trump. I don't know what a sick man that would decide to kill forty nine. People innocently was thinking, I don't want to have any idea. Frankly, what was in his mind. But what I know is this it cannot be connected. We cannot sit here and say what is it that President Trump is doing that somehow triggering these people? This is an evil man that made a decision to murder forty nine people in that is on him, and frankly, the evil in his heart. When. When the Japanese attacked us on Pearl Harbor was happy because of Franklin Roosevelt and his language. I'm just curious. Well, we were hit on nine eleven was that because of George W Bush in his language. I mean, the insanity of all this. Try as they might try as they might the insanity is unbelievable. And this didn't even happen in the United States, and the mass murder wasn't even an American. But you see they heard Trump they hurt his language. They they're projecting. They wanted to be. So that's how insane this. They wish it were. So that this guy was traveling around with a brochure Trump for twenty twenty. That's what they want and they bring in a conga line of haters. Of the insane. Who go on and on and on? Do these people sound like they care about the forty nine souls who were slaughtered in New Zealand in two different mosques. Do these care spokesman sound like that. No, they don't do these reporters sound like it almost sound giddy. Add to bring in somebody from aljazeera to mainstream aljazeera while you're trashing Fox News left. And right. This is how low they've sunk. This is how low they've sunk. These are the same media institutions. That tried to destroy cavenaugh. There were more than happy to repeat the lowest form of lies. You can ever turn on a human being that he was involved in gang rape that he raped women on a boat. When they know it couldn't be true. He's a man of faith fifteen years as a circuit court judge. And now they're off to the races again. What exactly has the president of the United States done or said to deserve this nothing? Nothing. He said nothing at Charlottesville that supported the KKK or the Neo Nazis. A matter of fact, he said time and time again, then in that comment to the press before and after. And let's say he had this mindset is a white supremacist the clan and the Neo Nazis. Why would he say what he said today about the slaughter of Muslims? Why would he have tried to intervene twice? At the gassing of Muslims in Syria. Why would he do that? If he didn't care. Unbelievable. I know I'm supposed to go onto Dato O'Rourke. I'll get him. Don't worry. I'm not your typical host.

"Senator Richard Blumenthal, constantly outraged by things that are not anti Trump and Paul manafort's forty months and not forty years in prison seems to have have the Democrats in a tizzy the two year vilification in allegations of collusion. The former Trump campaign manager gets not for years like everybody wanted a just gets four years like meant to surprise many. And it's about past crimes, not Russian collusion is this the first stop on the exoneration train or an aberration. We'll talk about that. I feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-semitic attitude. It's up to hurt it to explain. But I do not believe that she understood the full weight of the words wouldn't silting Stephen that is I don't understand what I'm saying is basically what she's saying back down. That's what speaker Pelosi did to the outspoken democratic freshman class of congresswoman Omar's antisemitic offenses, morphed into a generic childish anti-hate measure, it is a true disgrace with that. Let's bring in the host of Shannon bream show. It is Fox News at night. Correct, shannon. You are correct. And Chas got a book coming out. I started reading it is great. But Shannon, I off. This was one of the stories you covering yesterday. The measure that took two days to put together was basically something we learned in first grade don't be mean to people. That's how congressman Doug Collins summed it up on the floor. Don't keep people don't be mean to people. You should have learned that in kindergarten. But there were even Democrats who was frustrated with the co process, you probably saw a congressman. Democrats from quarter who happens to be Jewish should say, Vince should not be so hard. Why should it be so difficult for us to say as a caucus that we don't tamper antisemitism now? This is not the first time they've had to say that. I mean, multiple times in congress, which is only a couple of months old. So there's a lot of frustration there. And you know, there were a lot of folks who wondered why they added in everything including the kitchen sink. Now, we all know that you're not supposed to say bad things stereotype and be cool to people. But this was launched by a very specific episode at a very specific person who was not mentioned in the resolution. Yeah, here's Elliot angle chairman of four relations where she is a member on that committee. He's jewish. He condemned. Her comments a series of comments right away. You know, the whole thing where it's all about the Benjamins baby talking about why we're so pro Israeli or why the Jewish vote has so much power when she came out and said that I should not be expected to have allegiance stores or pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in congress to serve on any committee. So here's what Eliot Engel said cut four when he. So about this broad measure instead of a specific one the words spoken by our colleague from Minnesota last week touched a very real very raw place for me. And when a member of our body speaks the way, the Representative from Minnesota spoke, then we need to single out and say, we will not tolerate it. And this resolution is a fine resolution, and I will support it. But I am very disappointed that we weren't able to have a separate resolution to specifically condemn anti-semitism. And what our colleague said that really was was a very hateful turn these Democrats and was four zero seven two twenty three. No kidding. But everyone thinks we totally missed the point there. How much power these freshmen have shot? A you're in Washington every day. Are you surprised? Well, I mean, they salvaged seems to be running scared. I mean, it really does and yesterday congresswoman Cossio quartet's, Dr Chad pergram, you're producer over there in Capitol Hill and said, hey, we as freshman and is a women of color or be specifically targeted. I mean, so they're they're pulling out all the stops. And making a lot of noise and saying we're in charge work control. But you got remember to the the leaders like speaker Pelosi and others power for what gets to the four. How things are run and committee assignments she gave them committee assignments on how foreign relations, and so that is very troubling. For a lot of folks on the hill who say listen, congressman, Omar who keep stepping in this particular issue and causing a lot of trouble. And she said some formulations, and they're all kinds of people saying that's not the right place for her. The establishment folks like speaker Placide gave her this coast people call for her to go. You know, there's a lot of Democrats pointing back a Republicans. You guys aren't clean we have the moral high ground here. But you remember what happened was Steve king? He was stripped of everything. Everything jelled their so called for things to happen to these freshmen who are causing a lot of heartburn for the Democrats. They're not happy about it. Here's Cory Booker. Now. One thing about the president and gets himself in trouble. Sometimes doing it. He'll take questions at all times as a candidate businessman, and I know it because he did our show every week when he was just toasting the apprentice he wouldn't even want to minutes before we hopped on the air. What are we talking about? And he would take all questions. Listen to Cory Booker dare. I say a different philosophy cut six. So.

"Be thoroughly considered and vetted. One of my core. Complaints or concerns about the cavenaugh confirmation process was the lack of a real FBI investigation of credible allegations of sexual assault. And I think we owe the Lieutenant governor the same sort of thorough investigation that was not done in the case of pride cavenaugh and those allegations. Oh, really? Where are all of the rush to judgment? No new due process. No, presumption of innocence, Senate Democrats. Let's see Richard Blumenthal, Dianne Feinstein cures Jila brand presidential candidate Kamala Harris, and so many others that went out there and even with the most bizarre an unsubstantiated allegations. Remember in the case of the the client of Michael avenue. You know, the story it did change at one point. But the story originally was always almost on a regular basis on weekends. And that there was a group of boys. And I remember judge Cavanaugh was part of this group. And they would spike the punch at these weekend parties, and then the boys would line up in the hall and wait their turn to gang rape, teenage girls, and it happened often. And then the story Chihuahua I saw near the Punch Bowl. And I one song give a red solo copy wasn't standing in line. And that story fell apart rather quickly. There should be follow up when allegations such as that are made. Now, remember when avenue was accused of something, and I said, I will give him the benefit of the doubt and the due process and presumption of innocence. He didn't give judge capital interestingly three separate investigations in southern California into avenue. Audie exonerated him. Now. We disagree politically. But that's the right thing to do. But if your attitude is I believe I believe, oh, but only if you're a conservative or only if you're a Republican or a constitutionalists originalist appointed by Donald Trump, then we believe no matter.

"The public needs to know what is going on. I demanded and I'm trying to organize everybody that I can to call for this Republic. This report to be released to the public. There's there Senate legislation if I'm not mistaken introduced today by Chuck Grassley, and Richard Blumenthal that would essentially require a public version of the report, I think with exceptions made for redacting classified information. Do you foresee something like that passing out of the house in short order? Well, I think it could pass out of the house. Let me just say this the puck. Public has been very patient. They've been waiting. We have heard bits and pieces here and there, and we want to know in the public deserves to know. And so I support the legislation that it should be made public. And if there's classified information that has to be redacted, so be it, but make this report public Steve Mnuchin was one of the people who who's been making the case about the sanctions for Ola der, pasta, the Russian oligarch, who, of course, also employed Paul Manafort had a contact since indicted intermediary named constant Kalinic who would go back and forth between them dare pastas. Businesses have essentially escaped now the sanctions acts from department of treasury because they reorganized in ways the treasury department says they're happy with a lot of people unhappy on Capitol Hill. What's your response to the administration's actions? I'm not happy with it at all. I think that the, you know at the center of this. Question about whether or not the president colluded with Russia with Putin or the oligarchs, etc. Is the question of sanctions, we know that Putin wants these sanctions lifted and I've said from the beginning that I believe in. I don't have the proof. But I believe that Manafort was set to the campaign to be there to ensure that they get Trump elected in every way, they possibly could. And this is an exchange for him lifting the sanctions and don't forget, our president has said that he believes this ancient should be listed a one way or the other. So I just believe that Mnuchin is, of course, a guided by the president they all apart of, you know, this relationship that they have with Russia and Putin and went oligarchs, I mean, when you take a look at all of the allies of this president that's involved in this whole question, you cannot help but ask yourself what's at the bottom of this. And. I think it has been asked more than one time. Why are they all lying? I think it's about sanctions. And I think is very important for us to continue to pressure to get those sanctions continued at enforce and not to do what we've just witnessed. They're trying to do. And that is be involved with de listing on the sanctions congresswoman, Maxine Waters. Thank you for your time tonight. You're welcome. Thank you next.

He goes to NATO says, hey, look at you guys promised two percent. You should be paying two percent. They said, well, nobody asked but then before he went to ask that question or even after he asked that question same response from the mainstream media, and all these people who I think who are they are very well marginalizing themselves, Stephen you, and I are MENA phase. And you know, when we re. Read the Old Testament and how? The office of the prophet was treated and that is that look at your your office as a prophet was validated. By the results of what it was that. You were prophesying and prophesying is really when you really think about it. There's a lot of commonalities with people who are in the media and communications. And if you do not have. Substantiation of what it is that you are offering an opinion about or some sort of vision, and it goes by the wayside the thing is that is annoying to me as they still continue to put people in front of the camera and give them place, and it's like looking like Richard Blumenthal during the cavenaugh, which of all people. I mean, I think it's quite interesting. I often find that people self indict and Richard Blumenthal, talked about well, you know, if you're untruthful in one thing, it means untruthful and others, right. And you're saying Richard Blumenthal. You know? Are you kidding me? And so I called him to dick. He has such a way with word. You're right. The left. You know, we all do that. There was all this kind of shady stuff going on that when they looked at judge Kavanagh's life and his record and could find nothing to disqualify him. Right at the end, they through this kind of hand grenade. You know with the idea that maybe it would. Up his nomination. And thankfully, it didn't. I think it did something that almost nothing else could do and that has unified the Republican party because there's basically three Republican party. So they don't cooperate. Right. What I would call the establishment, you know, the bushes and right Romney and whole group. And then you've got the tea party, which has been pretty marginalized. But it it certainly exists. And then you've got the Trump Republican, you know, that's the way it's going. But can you believe how? Mitch McConnell and Senator Lindsey Graham and others God right behind the president that they showed a little bit of backbone. I was gonna say they discovered they do it again. And again, they discovered their spine in the process. That's a good thing. We're talking with Stephen Strang..
