"richard burr" Discussed on What Next | Daily News and Analysis
"Senator Richard Burr. Who until last week was the chair of the Senate? Intelligence Committee made these suspicious stock trades back in February. That's when most of us were still going to work going to the movies. Riding trains and buses. The reason Burr is under suspicion for insider trading is because around the same time. He cashed out that stock. He was saying remarkably different things about the krona virus in public and in private in public. He wrote not bad for Fox. News said the trump administration's corona virus response was going smoothly. But if you later when he was privately speaking to donors and lobbyists he warned them to date krona virus threat seriously. And that's where Tim. Mack comes in part of the reason. Why senator bursts stock sales seemed suspicious is the context that we learned about them in. You uncovered this audio. Can we talk about it a little bit? This is audio from back on February. Twenty seventh right. Where's it from and what's happening? I mean I think in order to really understand that audio we have to put ourselves back in the mindset of the world was like in February right and it's hard to kind of think back to pre corona crisis era. But that's what where we were. On February twenty seventh. The stock market had crashed. We hadn't had all these stay at home orders. The first person had not died in the United States from the cord virus but on February twenty. Seventh senator. Burr went to a luncheon with a group of well connected constituents These are people who are business leaders North Carolina Who have lobbying Firms representing them in Washington. Dc. He goes to this luncheon and he says that he's worried that this crisis will be calm probably as bad as possibly as bad as the nineteen eighteen pandemic. One thing I can tell you. This is much more recipe seen in recent. It's probably working to the and he says it in this kind of like offhand way almost like just yeah might happen which it now. We see differently but at the time. I don't think people were really making that comparison as much. No he seemed to really have dug into this question of what the prices would mean for America and he seemed to have some sort of information. About how bad it would be. He warned about schools shutting down. He warned about travel being. Shut down all of these things before. Most of the public had any inkling. The vast majority of public had any inkling that this would happen. Only be sure unity's obviously North Long. Have a transmission rate where they say a close schools for two weeks relate stay home. He warned that military hospitals would need to be set up in order to create beds and provide treatment to people who were sick now. Senator Byrd never came to the Mike and warn the public of his view on this despite his expertise on bio threats and And he's spent many years working on this issue. He never decided to warn the public. Put out a press release. Go to a television. A camera go to any the mics of many reporters who stand in front. I'm in front of him every day. He never warns the public. He warns this private group of individuals. And that's pretty much. Yeah and a few weeks earlier he'd written an op Ed for Fox News where he basically said were. You're in great hands. The trump administration is going to really handle this corona virus. Well right his message was. We've got all the tools necessary to deal with this coming crisis and then as soon as you reported about this meeting other information starts to come out about these stock trades. Tell me about that right. So there's this piece of legislation called the Stock Act in the Stock Act requires lawmakers to periodically disclosed their stock transactions. And what PROPUBLICA did was that. They went through his stock transactions and realized something that I hadn't found. Which is that senator. Burr had in series of very unusual transactions on February thirteenth made thirty three stock transactions and sold up to one point. Seven million dollars worth of stock A single day. And that's remember just a few days after that op ED. You mentioned where he says. Don't worry everything's GonNa be okay so a couple of days after the op-ed he sells off a bunch of stocks and then a few days after that. He makes the speech where he says. Listen this corona virus is going to be bad now. You said he sold off. I think one point. Seven million dollars worth of stock. How big of a deal is that for? Someone like Senator Bar that that that probably is a very significant portion of his net worth senator. Burr is not a wealthy senator. Relatively speaking I mean one point. Seven million dollars is a of money to me. But for a senator And someone of his age his net worth is not particularly high among his colleagues so this would represent a pretty substantial portion of his assets and remember. He has said that he is not going to run for reelection when his term ends in twenty twenty two so he's presumably thinking about retirement and he makes a move here. It appears to secure his future. Npr teamed up with Dartmouth College analyze. Senator bursts transactions. They were looking at birth stock sales on this one day February thirteenth to see how they compared to trades made in the past so typically between two thousand twelve to about twenty eighteen. Twenty nineteen senator. Burr is a very bad stock picker on average if you look at his stocks six months after he purchases a stock. They're down point eight percent relative to other stocks in the same industry and after a year. They're typically down about six percent compared with that same benchmark and we should be clear here. Which is this is senator. Burr buying these stocks himself. Right we don't know about his history but we do know that on February thirteenth senator. Burr has said that he transmitted those decisions to his broker. Personally I don't know about his history but it may be safe to say if he did it in this case he's typically been doing. He is kind of lousy about stock. Picks he doesn't trade in high frequencies you know he would on average in a quarter. Every quarter would make an average of three point two stock sale but on February thirteenth. He makes more than thirty stock sales on a single day so ten times ten times what he would normally do in a quarter and not only that these stock sales are amazing. Stock picks incredibly well-timed incredibly well chosen after the stocks were sold the underperformed the market by eight percent Right that means that the stocks performed worse than comparable stocks in that same sector between the sale and the end of March six weeks later. I mean the stock market began the crash. Maybe a week later ten days later I was looking through your reporting and I saw that you wrote to the senator spokesperson and said Hey. Do you WanNa talk about these stocks hills and that prison back just L. O. L. Let's crack true that happened. I can't I can't speculate about why that person would do that but that that did happen. So how does the senator defend himself here? How does he explain the SOCK sales? What the defense for an allegation of insider trading is to say. Well No. I didn't use non public information. I only relied on public information information. That you or I or anyone else would have. And so. He's argument is that he made these very well. Timed very precise very successful sales based only on reporting on the coronavirus that he saw on. Cnbc. That's his argument. And we should say that this opened up interest in other lawmakers to and how they were dealing with their own stocks but it seems like burs cases different. And I wonder if you can articulate. Why well there are a number of reasons why his transactions are more suspicious than some of the other names that we've heard put out there like Senator Leffler of Georgia and Senator Feinstein of California. Those are two names of people who either themselves or their spouses made some. Interestingly timed transactions but Senator Burr. I feel remains a focus of investigators for a number of reasons. He had this enormous number of transactions on a single day that volume of transactions was very unusual for him. He sold a lot of stocks of to two hundred and fifty thousand dollars worth of stocks in the hospitality sector. Which as we know has really been hit by the coronavirus crisis. He is private comments. This audio that. You've mentioned that we had from that meeting with well-connected constituents show his state of mind that his personal view contradicted his public his personal and private view show that he was deeply deeply concerned about how bad the corner virus crisis would become and finally he was personally behind the sales. His statement in response to some of this reporting was that he personally directed the sales. Senator Leffler for example has said that she used a third party and didn't personally direct any of her stock sales. So if you look at the tally of those circumstances you realize these circumstances are far more suspicious than the other. The other circumstances that have been pointed to in all of this reporting. It seems strange to me. That senators are even allowed to do this. Because even if you're not the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee you are going to have information on a confidential basis important information about the country. So I guess I feel like we're setting these lawmakers up for failure by saying you can trade stocks and serve rather than say. Put your money in a trust or you know. Everything is executed by third party. Why are senators even allowed to do this? It's an interesting question I mean. They've never been prohibited from doing so but there is a groundswell of lawmakers proposing legislation. Now that prohibits personal stock transactions that some lawmakers are now coming around the idea that lawmakers should not be allowed to make these individual stock transactions mutual funds okay. Etf's fine but individual stocks should individual stock trading should be prohibited by members of Congress. So let's talk about where we are now. Senator Burr is no longer the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee for the time being. Can you talk about the significance of that senator? Burr has been a mainstay on the Senate Intelligence Committee. I mean if you talk to Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee. You'll you'll find that many of them have a lot of respect for Senator Burr and that he's worked in generally bipartisan. Way when it comes to matters of intelligence in fact since the twenty sixteen And the kind of fallout in two thousand seventeen. He's been working across the aisle on a series of reports on Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election and afterwards as chairman. Senator Burr has just not been super public Not particularly accessible to the press but I think generally speaking as a chairman a lot of folks have praised for the work is done. I was surprised to see this investigation. Move forward against a Republican senator. And maybe that's just the cynic in me but I'm curious if you can kind of tease out here The decision making because there has been speculation that senator he was among one of the more. Bipartisan senators. You mentioned how he was. You know looking into Russia interference in the election. And I wonder if you think that speculation is fair. I think the answer to the question really depends on whether you think. The Justice Department maintains its independence in the kind of Burr era. Right the attorney general is working as the Attorney General of the United States or as president. Trump's attorney general. So you think that the Justice Department has become hopelessly politicized than you might have a fair question to raise about whether or not Senator. Burr was targeted here. Because you look at the history those close to the trump White House are not fans of Senator Burr. Because if you'll recall part of the Russian investigation senator. Burr helped approve a subpoena of Donald Trump. Junior to.

"This is much more aggressive strategy should we have that audio guys it probably work and to the nineteen eighteen pandemic there you go there it is so you have senator Richard Burr saying how serious this virus was he knew and this was back on February twenty seventh at that time the U. S. only had fifteen confirmed cases and this was around the same time that bird dumped his stock and I can't believe I'm going to say this but here's a situation where I actually agree with Tucker Carlson rarely do I ever agree with him and even though he only covered the story for about a minute or two yesterday because if it's anything anti trump or if it's anything obvious that hurts Republican once in a while Tucker will cover it but he'd rather do twenty minutes on Hillary Clinton but this is Tucker Carlson last night where we agree where he's ripping senator Richard Burr have a listen to this she may have seen the news reports this afternoon the chairman of the Senate intelligence committee sold more than a million dollars in stock in mid February after learning how devastating the Chinese coronavirus could beat he had inside information about what could happen to our country which is now happening but he didn't warn the public he didn't give a primetime address he didn't go on television to sound the alarm he didn't even disavow an op ed he'd written just ten days before claiming was America was quote better prepared than ever for crown of arson into any of those things instead what do you do he dumped his shares in hotel stocks so he wouldn't lose money and then he stayed silent maybe there's an honest explanation for what he did if there is he should share with the rest of us immediately otherwise he must resign from the Senate and face prosecution for insider trading there is no greater moral crime than betraying your country in a time of crisis let's appeared that appears to be what happened could not agree with Tucker Carlson anymore this man there's not there's gonna be no logical explanation for this he needs to go I needed to go to jail now it doesn't stop with him thanks sadly at a time when we should be talking about how do we help Americans how do we help people how do we get them the care that they need help how are they safe from this virus the daily beast reporting that senator Kelly Wampler the newest member of the Senate sold up to three million dollars in stock between January twenty fourth the day of a private all senator meeting on the coronavirus threat and mid February just as troubling is the fact that during this time trump and his administration were downplaying the virus well Kelly what sort of what was going on she had these private senator meetings you also the co authors has been is the head of the the chairman of the New York Stock Exchange while she's worth about half a billion dollar she she's the wealthiest senator by a lot well you know what she could be wealthy all she wants to achieve she could be you know wealthy behind bars I believe she also deserves to go to jail and by the way it's not just Republicans that we're talking about here Bloomberg cites financial records showing committee members Dianne Feinstein who is a Democrat and Republican James itself also sold stock after these January briefings Feinstein unloaded millions of dollars worth of shares in the biotech company our gene therapeutics and in all of that with a four hundred thousand dollars worth of stock some of it pay pal and the real estate company Brookfield asset management Richard Burr by the way is responding Brian and JD writing on Twitter I relied solely on public news reports the guide my decision regarding the sale stocks back on February thirteenth so he's denying that he did what he's been accused of doing what a piece of garbage so basically what he's saying is he wanted all these private meetings and he all got all this private intelligence a private information but what he's claiming there's no no I didn't use any of that information I just use the public dollars well guess what Mr public knowledge he talking about are you talking about the public knowledge when Donald Trump was downplaying this virus is that the kind of public knowledge that you're talking about you idiot he says he's asked the chairman of the Senate ethics committee to open a complete review of the matter with well transparency think it all comes down to does he trade a lot of stock typically how much city happens for example you know Leffler she probably has a couple hundred million dollars in the stock market and it's a standard trade for her might be two to three million dollars that could be used to buy that line because you don't know what you just listen it's the day of the meeting get it but I'm saying with Richard Burke I can you know you're not listening to me you're listening no you're not actually I am thrilled with the ball did this the day of the meeting the only I just disagree with you yeah are you gonna happen again go ahead are you sure go ahead I'm still gonna disagree I'm glad I'm I'm saying no I'm saying la fleur this might be a standard trade for if Richard Burr made a trade that was significantly larger than a standard trade under the circumstances and he also reassured the American public that things were okay in the process I totally agree with across I think Richard Burr did good I'm I'm guessing he probably had a few million Bucks in the stock market not a two hundred million likely Leffler while I think what what bird it is much more egregious everybody else all right all right so my my opinion stays the same and here's why this is the day of the private meeting as soon as she got out of that meeting we're talking hours later she got rid of three million dollars the stock to hold on let me finish now if this was a regular day or maybe it was before that one of these meetings I would agree with you but you're telling me it's not doesn't raise eyebrows that the date of this meeting obviously it raises eyebrows obviously Richard Byrd did what he did and was upset with Kelly left with and I was talking about particular situation if she's if she's been trading millions of dollars every single week for the last year and she does that in her standard trade is in that range insistence and now if she dropped a hundred million dollars in stock after that meeting she did have that much stock in it no I'm saying in general and if you're in various in in whatever holding she had because the entire market crash okay it wasn't let me repeat that it wasn't just specific I understand I understand saying is if Leffler had had had taken out fifty percent of her money in the stock market then I would then I would agree with you a party on the same level as per but I'm guessing that Burke probably took about sixty percent of his money out of the stock market this is network to sneakily lower but Kelly left let me repeat this again because I think this is very very important on January twenty fourth Kelly Loeffler the day of not the day before not the day after the day of a private all senators meeting on the corona virus threat this wasn't a private meeting about other issues it was a specific private all senators we are supplied classified meeting about the corona virus threat she immediately dropped three million dollars a stock now to me that is all you need to know because nobody and I mean nobody could convince me that she'd dump three million for any other reason other than the fact that she had just gotten out of that meeting and receive some information I would take a look at her trading history before I would make that statement that's okay well not me not me we just disagree I think the proof is in the pudding and the proof is that she decided to dump all the stock hours after this meeting I think all these these senators are guilty including financing also one of the senators in my personal opinion are guilty and what a disservice to this country where you are actually speaking publicly about this virus and downplaying it along with the president of the United States and his administration and then behind closed doors you are dumping stock after going into these private all senator meetings on the corona virus threat you want to talk about a serious crime and listen there are some things that people have done as far as stocks go who's the cook out what's your name I'm I'm I'm drawing a blank now that went to jail for insider trading I'm Martha Stewart the store yeah the store did was wrong she brought the launch went to jail you asked me what the senators have done is twenty times worse because they're downplaying a virus and at the same time they're trying to downplay it publicly with their statements they're going behind closed doors maybe with their husband or wife or with their families after going in these private also the readings on the virus and they're dumping stocks and the reason why Bure would do something like reassure the public is to keep the stock where it's at hat would which allows them to dump the stock had he told the public what was going on the stock would have dropped by itself and you would be able to get out of his position and what you were talking about about Berlin we give you a little bit more information about what you said suppose that worth was estimated around one point seven million dollars in two thousand and eighteen meeting the sale likely included most all of his holdings according to ProPublica no that's what I'm saying but but but again you understand what I'm saying are you going to a private meeting at which your she could be worth a billion dollars you're going to a private meeting and also and by late this private classified meeting was only about the crown of ours and then hours after this meeting I don't get it but Richard Burge up about ninety percent of his entire net worth but Kelly Loeffler dropped about one and a half percent of her network this guy knows he screwed he's he knows he screwed considering it considering what he did he should disagree said he did this and he should spend time behind bars said he did this JD from public knowledge I mean it's what a lying scumbag now this sometimes it could be a little difficult to prove but I think in his case I think I don't think it's going to be difficult to prove it also here's we're gonna do we're gonna take a break and when we come back we know and we will be joining US radio host at about newsmax also review journal columnist we talked about it yesterday I said some not very nice things about him yesterday we're gonna get into this debate is it okay for people to say certain hills are certain to have you know certain to I guess I'm struggling for the right word here but certain items can kill the corona virus well there's no proof to back that up I'm gonna give me a chance to defend it when we come back certain magical lectures and potions yeah exactly we're gonna take a quick break and when we come back we'll be joined live on the air by Wayne Allyn root will be back right after this you are listening to the Vegas tech and now another addition of obvious news from geico experts now say that wearing more

"Facts he laid out we're also after this week by FBI director Chris rate Russian interference is serious and it's likely to happen again in twenty twenty yet Majority Leader Mitch McConnell not moving on bipartisan legislation in the Senate will be pay a political price well this carries echoes of course of what Mitch McConnell did in the months leading up to the twenty sixteen campaign you'll remember that the Obama administration wanted Congress to pass some sort of a statement and McConnell blocked it and said he wouldn't go along because he felt it was being caught up in partisan politics it was designed to hurt the Republican nominee and so and that's very much his argument today this is democratic partisanship this is not actually about making our elections more secure it's about Democrats trying to score points the interesting thing dance your question directly I don't know if you'll pay a political price in his own state but I do know that it just sort of to my mind reeks of hypocrisy and it also potentially set himself up by this sort of a you live by the sword you die by the sword so he doesn't want to see this because he sees is calculated to go against trump a Republican president what we learned today that the Iranians are also interested in potentially interfering on our election and if they do interfere in the twenty twenty campaign they're likely to interfere in ways it could have different outcomes and so and likewise the Chinese so the whole notion of foreign interference in elections isn't necessarily automatically anti Republican and I think that's the issue the Mitch McConnell should think about and I think what's so outrageous about this to a lot of people is the Richard Burr is the Republican chair that committee that Senate intelligence committee worked as a bipartisan committee I've covered that in that committee for decades and they they delivered and Robert Muller delivered that report delivered on this very issue it is an attack on our democracy and in fact in the twenty eighteen mid terms the National Security Agency shut down the internet reaches her research agency in Saint Petersburg for number of days just to make sure that they could not interfere with our election they are so concerned about it if this is happening now and for Mitch McConnell not to let this bipartisan two measures fairly anodyne measures but they were at least to start on cyber security and other measures not even get to get a vote on the floor it's pretty it's pretty astounding my new Majority Leader has cited the Russian sanctions there were put on by the U. S. government by the trump administration decided three hundred eighty million in grants Congress allocated to states last year whenever I see you your roaming the halls of the U. S. Senate you're talking to lawmakers on both sides and what's the real state of place is all about preserving his fragile relationship with president trump or is he making a states rights case well both you know if he is making a state's right case of sars trying this because contend that he's being ideologically consistent but there are things in there that have been wide bipartisan support such as mandating back on paper ballots hi and the waves forcing these election of the facials to do that because of concerns that these systems could be interfered with in some way that yeah I'm sure it's a states rights argument but also if you were to go down that route that suit open this up to a larger discussion about election interference bring up what happened twenty sixteen all the sign you may anger the man who's sitting in the White House and McConnell does not want to do that and the sun is not become a place with a legislate anymore they simply just deal with confirming president trump's nominees he was the McCall does not want is open up at Dorney situation with the White House instead your take is heads from them Democrats media's publicans are silent about this and that and see where the chips fall where they may so there's a Senate report on interference but you cover interference as of the rise and you know it goes beyond just what a Senate committee concludes there are deep fake videos online they're a wiki leaks of documents and emails what our reporters citizens confronting on this interference issue broadly speaking as we head into twenty twenty I think that was one of the messages that Miller had that you know not just Congress but we as citizens maybe we in the media have not yet fully come to grips with the lessons of twenty sixteen and what we're going to do next time because there is undoubtedly going to be a next time that stolen material appears online that can be helpful to one party or the other you know every day we still see faith viral memes pop up online and and you know get spread like wildfire before before they're shut down so I think we're just very much at the beginning of of confronting this problem as a society we haven't figured it out at all yeah what's your take away on Mr Muller's testimony about wikileaks yeah I thought that was really one of the most striking moments of his testimony because he tried so hard not to enter the partisan fray and so he had this one moment where he was asked what he thought of the statements that president trump made during the campaign about wikileaks and it was you know I expected him to side step as he had had almost everything else but instead he said that he found out you know problematic was an understatement that it was giving hope and boost to illegal behavior it was really a striking moment to hear him be so critical of president trump in the way that he dealt with wikileaks if I came to life more in the afternoon session with house intelligence I think precisely because of the way he started in his initial line minute opening statement back after the report was released and engine again on the Russian attack this is what was animating him this is the mission that he was there to cover this is the original crime if you will that led to the potentiality of obstruction and I think that that's why he went beyond that yes No maybes you know and the second guessing you hear from Capitol Hill is that perhaps they should have started with the house intelligence committees part of why you're in a wide the structure at this well they technically he is they oversee the judges are going overseas justice department dead special counsel reports the justice department so this is a jurisdictional Feng so they could say that I was just your committee should go first is a turf battle everyday but in capital has a turf battle some of these guys and you want to be the first person for their friend I'm thanks a turf battle on Capitol Hill it wasn't actually too much of a turf battles this week on the budget the house passed a sweeping to your budget and debt limit deal Thursday before lawmakers left Washington to begin their six week summer recess the deal raises federal spending levels list the debt limit for two years and prevent automatic spending cuts to military in domestic funding and now heads to the Senate where it's expected to pass and ultimately end up on the president's desk next week under president trump federal debt has surged to twenty two trillion in the annual deficit is expected to reach one trillion this fiscal year this is a Republican Party the fed has been about the deficit under speaker Ryan yet now it's embracing in a bipartisan spending package a debt limit package why put all those principles from the past in the rear view mirror I think part of this is a a change in mindset and it's not just in the Republican Party it's among Democrats as well and it's actually not even just in the political classes I think someone in the academic world as well there is this evolving believe for conviction that debt and deficits are not as threatening as damaging as say people thought they were a decade ago if you remember the way Bob Rubin came and as bill Clinton's top financial before treasury secretary head of the council of economic advisers and and sort of drummed into him the idea that we have to get this under control it's an overhang that'll you know destroy our children's future that thinking has completely disappeared in today's Washington was the economy driving this decision inside of the White House they didn't want to rattle the markets absolutely I think this president he the way he loves polls he loves the stock market that's his measure success and it may be a false measure in terms of the underlying economy and what we're gonna face with entitlements and deficits down the road but if that's what he's looking at he knew that the fox hunt there was death not doing a debt ceiling raise would have been fatal to his economic Compson will actually was remarkable to though he put in a tweet that day calling on the house Republicans to get behind this bill and overwhelmingly house Republicans revolted and voted against it now money or not many were not speaking up against it and this was a bipartisan deal that was cut Mitch McConnell Senate Majority Leader supports that it will pass the Senate with Republican support but the Republicans are not comfortable with this but they're scared to speak out to you at the Ted Cruz who will lead the charge against leading a debt ceiling increase during the Obama years I asked him are you'll comfortable with raising the debt ceiling for two year suspending it for two years he said he didn't want to comment when asked about initially and it just goes to show you just totally different from the conveying a who one who did not want this and a big success for managing the treasury secretary and we saw a new economic data on Friday the GDP rose at a two point one percent rate for the second quarter that's a pull back from the three point one percent in the first quarter of this year that's according to the commerce department you've been on Capitol Hill as a reporter for years the Republican Party with the president on this economy regardless of his lack of interest in deficits perhaps yeah I did a stint on the hill I arrived in two thousand eleven during what people might remember was this really sort of almost frightening moment where they almost didn't raise the debt ceiling and I was there through twenty thirteen and my entire tenure was this story of the the perpetual flight over the being a rule where they agreed that they would not raise the debt ceiling more than one dollar for every one dollar of spending cuts and watch that just just it entirely get wiped away is just in a few short years it's just amazing to watch yeah and that propelled the house Republican majority back.

"Eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one. All right. Welcome back to the Mark Levin show. Dan Bongino in for Mark Levin. AM on a very serious note before we get back to the topics does your I wanted to recognize a another lost hero. I used to be as many of, you know, New York City police officer was a great job. I only did it for a couple of years earlier earlier in my life, but met some of the finest men and women I've ever worked with in my life, and we lost one last night detective Brian Simonson, and I just wanted to recognize him in front of Mark's audiences and is. The the sacrifices. He made. He was thinking this story folks he misses detective, and he was responding to a call. But he wasn't working. He was just going into the precinct. I believe it was one hundred second precinct. I administrative meeting. It wasn't even required to work doing basically policing work that day. But here's this radio. Call for a robbery in progress at a T mobile store and like every hero patriot. He responds says call duty, even though we didn't have to do that. And he walks in and unfortunately in a friendly fire incident with a subject who had a a what looked to be a weapon it later turned out to be fake. But it didn't. I mean, if you see the pictures, there's no way you would know that. But he was killed. So recognize him and say, godspeed brother, really, you are the finest of us all of you. And it's just a shame that some of our cops have to put up with some of the nonsense. They put up with for very little they get none of the fame. None of the gory. None of the riches out of this job. And they put their butts on the line every day. So the -tective Brian Simonson. God bless you, brother and your family. If anyone's listen, you got a real hero there. I know that does nothing to to get rid any of the pain, but this at least worth mentioning all right, folks. So he's tough to segue out of that. But I feel it's important that we we mentioned his name. We don't hear their names enough. So yesterday as I insisted was not a good day for the Democrats. Although there painting it out to be. As such. I again, I think Trump is coming out of this. These these constant this litany of a proposed shutdowns and disastrous budget deals, I think he is coming out of this on the political winds citing I'm going to take some calls on it later. She got someone on a co-op board agrees disagrees. He says, hey, Trump didn't win. I'll get through this. Call in a minute. Chris didn't have much of a choice. But I disagree, folks. He does have a choice. I mean, there's always a choice. Right choice may not be. Maybe a Hobson's choice may not be a good one. It may be a series of bad options. But there is a Trump could very well not sign this deal on on on Friday when the budget deadline kicks in and shut down the government again. He he's that's perfectly. That's a choice. He has. I'm simply suggesting to you all though, it's a bad deal. It is the only option we have right now because there are no good deals out there. We don't have the votes, and I think that does make him the winner and winning politically and making a consistent number of the posits its way political capital Bank account where you're gonna make withdrawals later. To do big things. In other words, what Mark thesis and who's he suggested leveraging the sequester in December on FOX last night, which I thought was a terrific point this equestrian, remember the budget control act, folks, the budget control signed under Obama. So the liberal media will have nowhere to go member. Obama was getting pressure on the debt and the deficits and the debt ceiling and the increases in the debt ceiling remember that. So well baba was forced to sign the budget control act, which automatically puts a cap on government expenditures. They have been waving that cap almost since it started that cap will go into effect automatically in December. Trump has leverage in that fight. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm not a sun Suu guy like. Do you like the art of war and give you all these dramatic quotes? But why would you engage in a fight? You know, you can't win. I'm telling you, wait to key one that I shut shutdown fight. He got the Democrats on the record as being obstinate at best being completely unwilling to engage in a back and forth on any reasonable border security mechanism. I think they came out of this big losers. He comes in like the adult in the room. He he caves on a couple of points. He had to I'm not suggesting he got anywhere close to what he wanted. But he makes posits in that account which hopefully can withdraw later whether it's judicial court appointments to sequester a significant government spending, ladies and gentlemen, sequester kicks in December. We're looking at close to one hundred and twenty billion dollars in spending cuts. That's nowhere close to enough to to stop the bleeding. But it's enough to get at least it's a start. At least it's a start. We gotta start racking up some wins. Additional wins. But that wasn't the only portion of the Democrats really bad day yesterday. The Russian collusion. Fairytale is finally fully completely collapsing and taking down all of the imbeciles and morons who promoted this colossal tier one level hoax to every impressionable. Soccer sucked. It up like a bunch of idiots. A case you missed it. Richard Burr, who's the chairman of the Senate Intel committee. Not a die hard conservative, and certainly not some kind of flame thrower. He's a Republican. But a very. I don't to say milk toast level toned kind of moderate down the middle guy. Who's been I think to our detriment more than willing to entertain allegations of collusion. Finally comes out yesterday and emits after a leak by NBC news about the Senate Intel committee report that marrying up with the houses investigation. The house saw select committee on this. Marrying up with their charges that there is no direct evidence of this collusion. They haven't found anything. This by multiple witnesses, hundreds of documents testimony countless dollars they have found. Nothing this Mary's up with the Muller probe which has yet to find a darn thing about collusion. Now, the liberal media. I was just reading tweet by the hilarious. Western Natasha Bertrand Natasha Bertran with what's her where does she hold on? I'm doing this chart. She writes at the Atlantic. Oh, she's an MSN. Sorry. She's MSA NBC contract that she was a journalist. So she's an MSNBC contributor meeting. Of course. She's a comedian by nature, but maybe she's pretending to be a journalist. I don't know. But making some allegation. Well, we'll we look out the window, and we see snow on the ground. And although we didn't see it snow. It's not direct evidence. Said it snowed. But we see the snow. So we can assume it snowed. That was this. That was genius. What fantastic analysis by Natasha Bertrank comedian over an MS DNC grad is great work. So I responded to the scenario street. Let me just re I should re tweets on the air. But still it's funny. Anyway. I think it's funny because it's my you should never laugh at your own jokes public throwing all the radio rules out the window today. So I treated, hey, listen, I'm sorry for retweeting is you're basically all dumber for having seen this below tweet from quote journalists, but I feel an obligation to sacrifice a few collective neurons in order to show you how ridiculous the media loons that become in the Trump era, ladies and gentlemen, there is no evidence of this collusion. They can't find it anywhere. Now. What's fascinating about this is the circumstantial and direct evidence, which I'm going to get to over the next hour or so with the show the circumstantial indirect evidence of Russian collusion with the Democrats is heavy, but Natasha Bertrand MS DNC, comedian won't acknowledge any of that we throw on the ground. So I didn't see it snow, but it consumer snow because it's circumstantial possibly the dumbest tweet you're ever going to see in your entire life. There is they're trying to fabricate a crime, it doesn't exist. The Senate Intel committee had to come out and acknowledge that this thing is all garbage. And the liberals are freaking out that looney toon not set Abramson. Conspiracy theory guy who tried to he's been pushing this hoax forever on his Twitter account about collusion was melting down. Yesterday on Twitter melting down book more this day. He he's, you know, they're always glimpse are always so dramatic because they're they're not hard like us. They haven't had a deal with the debating their whole lives with maniacs. Coming at us and calling us the worst, you know, liberals have been coddled their whole lives. They've been coddled. They've been coddled through the education system there liberal parents. That's why they're snowflakes like they are. So they meltdown. They try to be a fake tough guys on Twitter. They're always say, they're so dramatic. They take lines from my tombstone dot Colladay wider. It's so embarrassing like stop the nonsense. Do the Susan powder stopped being Saturday. You look like idiots. Stop trying to be tough guy juifs covered. I'll be Huckleberry. They're so stupid. They melt down. It's such ridiculous child is fat. It's hysterical. So they lost it yesterday because the Senate Intel committee along with every other investigative body has looked at this thing has come out and said with everybody else's said that this is a hoax, and you're a moron. If you believe in. So my public service announcement for the day only imbeciles believe in the collusion brushing collusion hoax. Don't be an imbecile ends. That's my public service announcement for the day. But why is this important? Folks, it's important for a couple of reasons. Byron York as a good piece in the Washington Examiner today, and he's they're finally starting to acknowledge Byron York, she's pretty mainstream writer wash the examiner that they don't think Muller's going to issue a report either on this. And if he issues a report it's going to be nowhere close to indicating any level of a collusive conspiracy, or whatever you wanna call it because it didn't happen. So now, the Democrats are panicking. Why why why why? They're panicking folks because the last year and a half maybe up to two years if you factor in some of the campaign attacks before Trump was inaugurated. They have been promising to their activists donor base there volunteers there presidential campaigns. And anyone who will listen that they were going to impeach Trump and the template for that was going to be a series of charges laid out beautifully by the Senate Intel committee people in the house and Bob Muller report was going to be the Dakota gras. This was going to be this was gonna show everything and it shows. Thing nothing. It shows a bunch of taxi cab confessions process crimes that even the FBI. I don't think the players committed it shows nothing and the Democrats are freaking out. They have made promises to their lunatic base that they can't possibly fulfil. There is no collusion. There was never any collusion. There was no collusion in twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen and twenty nine thousand nine there was no collusion yesterday. There's no collusion today. There's not gonna be any collusion tomorrow. And Bob Muller is starting to realize he's dug himself into a corner..

"Standards of coordinated manipulation and inauthentic, babe. Your committee chairman Richard Burr says the most recent threats and veiled by Microsoft and Google aren't just from Russia. But also Iran as the CEO Jack Dorsey from Twitter is grilled on Capitol Hill yesterday joining us now telling you Jay powers from Fox News did we learn anything yesterday kinda. I mean, he wasn't the only one that was grilled. He and Facebook CEO show Sandberg actually went before the Senate intelligence committee yesterday morning for a few hours. And then he was he appeared before the house energy and commerce. Committee yesterday afternoon by himself. I it is also important. I note that Google was invited to that one before the Senate intelligence committee, but they did not send representatives just Facebook at Twitter show up, but one of the things well several other things that they talked about included you had political bias you had shadow banning, you had hate speech school safety. There was election manipulation. There was foreign influences discussed, you know, how they Twitter was the CEO was asked pointedly in the one in front of the house yesterday afternoon. What steps they're taking to curb abuse? And how they are handling it. They wanted to know directly. You know, what are you doing about this? He did mention that you know, he didn't feel that the onus should be on the victim to have to report abuse. Because sometimes when when you see victim report abuse, and they re tweet the thing that the abuse that started it in the. The person who ends up getting, you know, banned more taken off Twitter is the person who reported it because they're they're reporting. It. So it's because they use the word that the person, you know, used in the abuse. So it's it's kind of the wrong person keeps getting targeted and some of this stuff. There's been several instances about he said, they're working on a full report on how they're handling abuse. And how they're hoping to get better and to change that should be available later this year that report so this is why right right wing conspiracy. Theorist Alex Jones hanging around right? Well, yeah, he was he was all over the place yesterday. Matter of fact, he wasn't. I mean, there was other protesters some, you know, liberal some conservative. We saw a lot of that in the Cavanaugh hearing. There was a lot of protesters out here. But I think probably the most retaining one was the one that showed up yesterday afternoon Dorsey hearing in front of the house because this woman who was a I think. She was described as being an outright protester, and she started basically stood up in the back of the room started yelling and this went on for quite a while and one of two representatives who has the former auction near basically drowned her out by doing auctioneering. The audio from this is hilarious because it just goes on. And he's basically it's like he's auctioning, you know, something in the everybody's just kind of looking around like what what is happening. And at the end, he goes, I yield back. Just like it was the common. Thank you know, once once you stop talking yielded back. It's not it was you gotta Google that. If you haven't seen it already. It's warier bizarro world. Okay. John Jay, Fox News. Thanks a lot nineteen after seven o'clock now on a related note. The department of Justice plans to meet with state attorneys general this month to take a look into social media companies and accusations that are stifling viewpoints attorney general Jeff Sessions calling for the September twenty fifth meeting no word on which state attorneys general will attend. So while not providing examples, President, Trump is accused social media companies have censoring conservative opinions in fact, right wing conspiracy. Theorist Alex Jones who we just heard confronting Marco Rubio, the founder of info wars Jones, not Rubio as recently had.
