On Hillary voters. Twitter suspended Rick Yvonne's account in October 2016. In other words, before the November election, he was already suspended off Twitter.

Good, Rick. I love your show. Thank you very much. I wanted to call I was listening earlier. Um My son actually dropped out of college because all the liberal crap they're teaching and any time he would question anything, or Bring up, you know the other side. Um, that basically said, Well, what? That's not right. That's a lie. Whatever ended up, giving him a bad grade and he just ended up dropping out, he's like they're just teaching. Mobile said, and thank God he's conservative and he will really get it. History so Hated that he did that. But, yeah, he doesn't want to go. He doesn't want to go back. And this was Richland here in Dallas, but he didn't want to go back to college because he just feels that That's all they're teaching and they won't listen to you on your side. Well, you know, let me just offer this up. Um Do you know who Ward Connerly was? Mm hmm. He was Um hey, was the Black California Board of Regions member? He's the one that came up with Proposition two of nine. Um, the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative. A man of quite a bit of substance. Um, and you know, he's African American. Well, When my daughter was a freshman. In college. She had. You know your typical ponytail patches on the elbows, sport coat kind of liberal when it came to, and I don't recall the class. It wasn't English. It was something else. But He was making the argument that a Bon IX ebonics was a legitimate language. And of course, we all know bionics, his street slang for black people. And she disagreed. She said. It wasn't a legitimate language on DSA. Oh, he threatened a failure because obviously his political leanings were to the left.

Well when she finally wrote the paper and turn to then I mean, everybody in academics know knows who work on early is he didn't have any other choice but to give her a passing grade and it's like I told her then in your freshman year And for most of your sophomore year, you're gonna be inundated by left wing lunatics on DSA summer tenured, some or not, But they all you know that Z where liberalism lives is in that bubble in that vacuum on universities, And then as you get to be a junior and a senior and certainly into Um, in, uh, your higher pursuits academically, that stuff kind of drops away. And you know, that's what she found to be true. I mean, You know when your freshman or a sophomore those of the times you need to be supported because you're not going to get any support at the college level. If you're conservative, or even thinking about conservative ideas just doesn't exist. Then that sounds like that's what your son ran into. Uh huh.

They had a right to their opinion. Well, the cancel counter culture is just the opposite. People have a right to your viewpoints, or you don't have a right to voice them. Yeah, sure. No. And as of right now, if you do that you're out of work or You know, they just shut everything down on you. You know you're absolutely right. It's the politics of personal destruction.

"They're socialism and cancel culture will not heal America. It will only further divide and destroy us. And, uh, I can say is I absolutely 100% without qualification or condition. Agree with that statement. You probably do too. Good afternoon. Glad you're along your afternoon drive. Rick Roberts with you Here live, you know. Did some Normally on the weekend. This is what I do on the weekend. I'm get things to do when you know, errands and shores and things of that nature and trying to keep Max Visine all that and You know, I would either be vacuuming or, you know, getting something together for dinner, cleaning or laundry, or, you know all those things that you do and which I hate by the way absolutely hated. Guys, if if you're married and you have a wife that stays at home, I promise you, I promise you she works 10 times harder than you do. Between the vacuuming in the laundry and the cleaning and the food and the grocery. You know, I get through with that stuff, and I'm too tired to do anything else. So if you've got a wife that stays home and does that kind of stuff Don't ever say she doesn't work that she works 10 times harder than you probably do. And then I do. OK. Well, that's not true, because I do both like that now. I was thinking I had a lot of time to think. Normally I've got a television on in in every room. And, you know, I'm listening to the news constantly used to drive my kid's nuts. You know they'd wanna watch. You know some cartoon and I'd have the news channels on s. So I ended up getting them TVs for their room. Not because I was trying to be pretentious, but that way I could have my news on I didn't do that this weekend. Didn't do that this weekend. You know, after going through the tumultuous election and post election, and and Joe Biden, Good Lord. His his speech, his acceptance speech, which, by the way, if you're gonna be fair was pretty good. It was about unity and everybody coming together and blah, blah, blah. But this weekend I had time Toso s things kind of look around and figure out. Okay. Where are we? Not just Aziz. No, not just as you know, on my block or in my community or in my city or state. But where are we as a nation, and it was not good news. It was not good news at all. You've got Disney thinking of putting disclaimers on It's classics like Dumbo because it hurts people with big ears. I guess it hurts their feelings and Peter Pan and and you know that you heard the trends gender. He lifted the transgender ban. In the military. Oh, you know, lead that's reason for celebration. Like if you can't figure out who you are. You don't need to be in the military. You need to be in some therapist couch, all right? Just my opinion anyway. Started thinking about this, and I thought, you know Individually. And as a group, whether it's AH group in your community or group in your state, we could we get along pretty good. It's the the empty headed knuckleheads at the top. That cause all this And it's got this filtering down. And of course, you know people that have nothing else going on in life. They glob onto this, and always sudden, it becomes a movement. So more and more and I don't mean this is a threat. But more more. I see the Convention of States Article five. Aziz the only salvation for the company because we took our eyes off the prize. And of course that was, you know, the Constitution of the night. United States. The Bill of Rights, obviously. And we we just We didn't hold people accountable with the top. So I don't look for anyone at the top to save this nation. The only way this nation will be saved a return to some type of decent character and morals and And all the rest is individually at the state level. I think that's the only way it can happen. You know, I want to get right into this. A lot of people have been talking about. Well, Rick, you know we can turn the nation round. We started third party, Donald Trump. You know, he's he's talked about the Patriot Party. Well, Um Donald Trump. As by virtue of a report this weekend, he's tabled the idea. They're moving forward with a third party. He now says he will not be convicted in the Senate. And is instead turning his focus to assisting primary challenges against the never trump Republicans. And I think that zone Lee Fair, That's probably what he's got to do. In the last 24 hours after floating through A bunch of folks that he was considering creating a third party with as a way to keep the Senate Republicans in line ahead of impeachment. He's now been talked out of that idea. I don't know by whom. But he's making clear to people he isn't pursuing a third party. Instead. Primary Republicans with President Joe Biden. Biden you know, he gave A peaceful transfer of power and a pretty decent speech. Right. Um, but now Biden's president, he's giving his speech January 6th that hole. Ridiculous thing is now in the rear view member. Trump is now believing it's far less likely. That 17. Republicans are going to join Senate Democrats to convict him in with the House article of Impeachment. A Nancy Pelosi is literally levitating salivating like Pavlov's dog. You know she's going after Trump. I don't think she's got anything else on her agenda, but You know that not withstanding Trump has started to believe there are fewer votes to convict in, there would have been.

"Welcome The Rick Roberts show. Glad you're along, believe it or not. Had to pinch myself several times actually gotten Max his face and started screaming Nancy Pelosi and you know they got real. Then I'm glad it's Friday. I'm glad we've made it to Friday. To be very honest, the GOP can still be Democrats and their own game. In taking back America. I'm going to tell you how in just a minute, but first, let's get to your calls Dale in Brock Dale, how you doing Pretty good red. Thanks for taking my call, and I'll try to get out of a smudge as I can of what happened. I was at the Capitol. With my father. While we were there. The guy with the horns that famously took a picture is 39 minutes after my video that I recorded him getting arrested by the capital. Police also have the video of the cops removing the barriers and saying You guys can come up here. All been fill all day. We were out there since nine in the morning and had been given them water talking to them asking about their families. They were talking to everybody that was in the crowd the entire day. We're way more than 100. Thousands of people have video and put pictures to prove everything that I'm saying that people have started beating on the windows were getting ripped down by none other than US domestic terrorist maggot members. I mean, it's just you don't believe in fake news, sir, and I'll be honest with you. I never thought that we could get to the level of corruption that we've been in our country. But look what they did to Trump when he first came into office, and the reason they're trying to impeach him now is too politically kill him so that he cannot take the movement that he started. Back to the White House and 2024. That is the on Lee reason you hit the nail on the head. When you brought that up earlier about, why are they wanting to impeach him? Now, everybody, that's part of the good old boy system and their money laundering scheme that they have of sending money supposedly overseas. $125 million for Pakistan Gender studies. How does that is not right. And we all know it's not right. And we're staring straight at it. When you flipped the lights on in the hotel. It's full of Roaches. Watch them scatters. You're watching them scattered now. Absolutely, Dale. Very good call. I appreciate it very, very much. Um, you know, people have asked me and man it just I've been doing this a long time. And I've had people ask me off the year. What do you think? What do you think? What do you think? What I think is that Um, uh, certainly a minority of those people in attendance, whether they were antifa or BLM or other random anarchist groups. I don't know. I bet that they probably are But the actions of a few indicted everyone according to the media, and nothing, nothing could be further from the truth. That was not the case. It was not the case. Trump supporters did not go toe attack and vandalize and hurt and killed. They didn't do that, because they're not like what we witnessed over the spring and summer. All that happened by those those few, um storming the Capitol building and gash. Now there are five people that one shot four others for medical reasons, having heart attacks, I guess and some other things. Um, death is death. No matter how it happens, I guess. Um, but if you look at this, the only thing that was achieved out of that is that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and the rest of the empty headed Democrats. Were given the moral high road. Over everyone else. Now, why would you want to do that? Doesn't make any sense. Bob in Dallas, Bob, how you doing? Great. Thanks for having me on your bet. So I just wanted to call it in and just provide some clarity. I was there for the rally on and I was also there at the Capitol. A lot of what the previous caller said is true. But what he witnessed and I witnessed a lot of it as well. I personally didn't go inside the Capitol, but I was there and it's all everything. I mean, my face still burns from At some of the tear gas or what not to pay deployed. But, um, it was pretty incredible, uh, pretty incredible to see. But there's I feel like there's been some mix up in what's been reported person first. What really happened? We'll tell me specifically what Well, you know, so on the back side of the Capitol, That's where the majority of the crowd gathered up on the balcony. There was the doors were open and then a lot of the people. You know that the doors were open. You could go in. If you wanted to go in and take a pencil. You could go in and take a pencil. I mean, it was it was you got, you know? Yes, the guy beforehand there was probably a million people at the rally, but descending upon the White House. It are the capital. It seemed like you know, it was like 140,000. People that descended upon it, and the most of them were on the back side of the property and crazy enough. They were singing like they were singing the national anthem waving. Flags and chanting We, the people! We the people, so it felt it felt more like like there's total chaos going on, but he did. It felt more like these people. Moved over to the Capitol and felt like they reclaim something that was theirs. And that's the vibe that I got..

Biden Harris lose The only way that they can win is to create balance is the light cheap steel just like we saw over the summer time. Democrat controlled cities and states were burning to the ground. You had, you know, I guess a flat screen over your shoulder and a 12 pack of Schlitz looting. Ah, Wal Mart somehow, some way. That's going to make everything all right. Democrats wouldn't lift a finger to stop any of it. And they realized that the only way they could win was to throw this country in tow, utter in pure chaos. This president has done more more for this country and the people that live here than last Three presidents combined. They know that that's why you get so you don't. Maybe I get emails like this.

Then we do the rest of them on Christmas day and really looking forward to getting some eggnog, maybe some wine and just kind of relaxing after an incredibly busy Last couple of days and a case I forget when you wish you a very merry Christmas now back to the topic at hand. The president pardoning these four military contractors. And how the media is presenting this now. Right before the break. I told you that there there is such outrage. Over the president, pardoning these four Blackwater contractors. You know, some people say Well, these guys are mercenaries and they killed 17 innocent people. Well, we don't know exactly what happened on that a day in Baghdad in 2007. The contractors themselves. They say that they were attacked and they were merely fighting back. But the people who out there who believe the you know Iraqis They say that they just simply began to open fire on innocents. Civilians for no reason at all. Now, which do you believe? I believe the contractors. CNN and MSNBC. And a lot of the lot of the liberal media. They believe the absolute worse as it relates to these contractors. But the point that I'm making is that as the media as they cover cover this story They're not giving the conversation or the story the full context that it deserves. Now. This isn't real surprising because we all know how the media operates. Right? I've got audio from CNN. Where they're discussing this story. And if you're just joining me Went through this in great detail right before the break. But in 2007 these four contractors working for Blackwater that they come under fire, they come under attack, and so they defend themselves. In this very busy traffic circle outside of the green Zone in Baghdad, and so they end up getting this massive firefight in when the whole thing was over. 17 people were dead 20 other people at least were wounded. And so they were accused of basically deciding randomly to start firing into a crowd Now again, just from a rational standpoint, I don't believe that. Remember that at the time. There were many forces inside Iraq and inside Baghdad that hated our presence there. And so we wouldn't surprise me. If is part of this whole thing. These guys were baited into this firefight so that innocents civilians would be killed so that they could utilize some sort of a campaign of hatred against these military contractors. And they spend that out to America for the deaths of all of these innocent people in Baghdad now is telling you more recently, the D C six Circuit Court of Appeals. Ruled that additional evidence should have been presented. And we also just found out that the lead Iraqi investigator Actually had ties to these insurgent groups that attacked these guys in the first place, So I wasn't there in Baghdad in 2007. You weren't either. Most likely So we really don't know what happened. So we have to use our rational thought and our judgment. And look at the evidence and figure out exactly what happened for ourselves. But there is no doubt that this is a contextualized and layer discussion. There's a lot of information. But if your CNN Hugh, just really stick to the talking points, contractors convicted of slaughter of Iraqi civilians what message does all this sense? I mean, you hear people say the words. Corruption. But I don't really think that goes far enough Wolf. I mean, to be completely honest, some of the people that he's pardon. We're just murderers. They were brutal. They didn't believe in the value of the sanctity of life. I was reading articles from The New York Times. On boast on Twitter and everywhere else and they Oh, by all means. Posts on Twitter is what you should base your opinion on going back talking about the youngest victims of these slaughters that occurred Overseas and how a father had to witness his son's brains being blown out. I mean, listen to the narrative Listen to how they intentionally use the word slaughter. They're trying to depict what happened as again a slaughter in the sense that well, they just walked around the crowd with their guns, and they just started to shoot. They just had this lust this thirst to kill. That's how they're Presenting this It's absolutely wrong. These guys, these four guys, their lives have been destroyed. Now, Finally, they catch a break with President Trump. And by the way again, there were a lot of Republicans that one of these four to ultimately be able to live their lives again. As opposed to having this constantly hang over their head. Prison time. All the rest. And so for CNN how they're how they're representing this Think is not only inappropriate, but it's also inaccurate. But apparently doesn't matter to CNN that that is how they are presenting this to their viewers. Because to me there should be again Mork context to the conversation. But remember what I said earlier. Remember what I said. Where, if it's President Trump and if it's something that the president has done, there is a major reaction where automatically What the president has done is wrong. And it's to be vilified. It's to be criticized. And so that's what CNN is doing right now, refusing to give this story this very important story. The proper context and the president of the United States as we go during this holiday season, one of his last acts before he gets to go spend time with his family..

Because if you're not going to prosecute a standing law, all that does is undermine the law. And encourage people to take the next step to a bigger crime. I mean, they'll stop talking the talk and start walking the walk. Um, let's go to Aaron and wily Aaron. How you doing? I'm great, Ric. How are you? I'm good. Thank you. Just wanted to go on your question that you had mentioned about where do you think the Republican Party will be in the next? Now, two years, whatever. Republican Party will probably be in the same place. It was 12 years ago, work before when Obama was elected or as a candidate. We had nominated McCain. And you haven't forward now needed Romney. It had There were faces that were not really the face of Most Republican voters in this country. The reason we listen to you the reason we like trump so much the reason we looking Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, etcetera, Because you guys say what we think. And for the most part, Trump have governed. Conservative way. Not as much as some of us like, you know, spending and then whatever, but mostly he has. But the Republican Party has no face that key party was organically created. Because of people rising up. They'll have no face to it. It was the face of the people. And you know Trump was mostly the face of the people for that long flight from the people come on to him, But we just we have no face. Until Like you're saying someone who will stand up and fight for the same things that we're fighting for the election fraud in someone like a city peril or someone like a you know a Linwood or Somebody who is strong enough and not part of the swamp. Which is why Romney cousin Collins, you know, even McConnell. Sometimes they just want to save face because they're part of the slum. We don't want part of the farm, which is why Trump was so electable. In the rubble, but Republican side we don't like the form. We hate that kind of head of rhetoric and politics and everything we want someone who works for us like you were talking about earlier. So I think the Republican Party has no faith until there is somebody who says what we think does what we want. And I don't know what it's gonna take to do that unless we just get behind somebody that or Or somebody says, You know what? All these people who are you know, whatever the pole was, it came out. That's what the week before that said how many people believe that election was a fraud? It was in the 40th percentile, 46%, which is which is insanity for how many people think that And no one wants to do anything about it, at least not from a elect elected Republican standpoint. Well, No, You're Aaron. You're right on point. Very good call. Um The election process is broken. It Z. You know, I called for some uniformity. Yes, each state. I'm a big believer in states rights, and each state handles the wrong vote independently. But now it's become apparent that we need to have some uniformity to close down those areas that would attract fraud and manipulation. Whether it's over voting or Our out of state voting or dead people voting or whatever it happens to be. There needs to be some uniformity. That's one issue. But Aaron, what you're talking about is a much, much larger And I would even venture to say more important issue, which is our political process and in the nation's capital is broken doesn't work And I think we can see that right now we can see it. Because President Trump went in as a non politician politician working on behalf of the American people working on behalf of those that live within the borders of this country. And he basically was treated as an outsider all four years. Well, no, he shouldn't have been the outsider. People should have gravitated toward him to emulate what he was doing on behalf of the American people, because what's happening in the nation's capital is not happening for the benefit. Of the American people and the American worker and and the American youth going to school. It zits self serving, but it's no surprise. It's not unique. Any government that's been in power for 100 plus years and you could look around the globe. I'm no world historian, but I can read. Every government that's not held accountable continuously goes through this same process. They end up being self serving and the people that they want served Now you no longer serve. They depend on those people to pay for what they're doing. Their government programs, the different things they need to stay in power. People need to go to jail. People need to be held responsible. People need to be held accountable, and that goes for both sides of the aisle. If you think well, that's just some right wing. Talk show host. No, I'm an American, first and foremost conservative, certainly, but that's out of like I said, You've got to be a conservative if you don't want to walk out and get hit by a bus. Um, e hope you take that line of reasoning for what it's worth. Our political process is broken. You can and I and I have known people Personally that have gone to Washington as state representatives and to hear the stories, Rick You got to take a shower every 15 minutes. Because you can't get anything done outside that circle the political circle, But if you get in the political circle, then you're a part of the political machine That's not working for the American people. They're working for a party or an individual or a piece of legislation that is gonna benefit them in some form or fashion. The whole damn system is broken. We need to clean house and we need to make people accountable. There's got to be consequence for action, whether it's a good action and certainly if it's a bad action. You know, you're never gonna make me believe that Joe Biden, Mr. Do nothing for 47 years outperformed Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on Election Day. I mean, the evidence we have is overwhelming. We don't even have judges at the district level or at the Supreme Court level that we're willing to overturn this election. Why? Because they don't want to see the entire country go up in flames, which is exactly what would happen because that's what Democrats do. Conservatives don't do that. Democrats do that.

"The way in for Rick Roberts this afternoon, I do appreciate it. And for those of you who are Rick Roberts fans, you know his dog Max goes kind of crazy whenever he mentions. Nancy Pelosi. I don't have a dog named Max. However, we do have a cat named Doc Kitty. Named after the, uh, the legend was Doc Thompson, where I was co host on the daily Motor with with Doc prior to his passing a couple of years ago. So if you hear the cat in the background, he does have a tendency to want to jump up on the on laps. So much like Joe Biden. It's I don't think it's any connection there. But if you hear the cat that will be Doc Kitty in the background, we're talking. It's a little It's a smorgasbord of everything. Mainly because I think my a D D is just it's It's kind of rampant today, so I'm jumping from place to place. So anything you'd like to talk about. Obviously you are when you call in it is your program and I welcome your opinion on everything, including Katie from Fort Worth. Andre. Katie. You I It sounds like you don't share my My viewpoint on mask or do you? You think you you think masks should be warned by everybody? Well, how do you What's your What's your opinion on that? We'll know it's you. That's much true. But could I ask you what is a DP? A DP I mean, uh uh, A DP. I'm not sure. A D D or attention deficit disorder. That's Ah, Yeah, my, my I have. I'm much much like a lot of America anymore. I have a very short attention span. If I am focused on one thing, and I see something shiny off in the distance, it will often get my attention. And I'm off down that road, So I apologize, But So what is your one mind kind of flip flops, but I'm kind of a person that just to see both sides of my mind Sort of goes here and there, so that's probably a t p A. T P 80 d'you know what's in there? Oh, yeah. What Whatever it takes. So you think that you see both sides of it? You see that? You think Master a good thing too. Where, even in public is that what you're saying? Yeah. Well, what has been and I are older than dirt. I understand that too. I feel the same way about myself. So Oh, well, you're probably another boulders. We are but My mother and lives in a very nice place a place for mom on itself that the most place Fortunately, she can afford it, and but we have to get a covert test. R and they want you 2 to 34 days before you go in there right now, and I am that's kind of hard to do Sure it is. Sure it is. And and when you're going to visit her, obviously, you don't want to drag in some virus does and germs. Whatever. I totally understand, Um, in a situation like that. Where it is a good idea to wear a mask. I have no problem with that whatsoever. And I think even as I think I said a little while ago even before this whole craziness that was the global pandemic. This'd year had occurred. I think that was wise. Wise advice. You know you are Am I have to stop and think about it every time someone asked me 15 6, I'm old enough to vote to have almost forget 56. So okay, Well, I've got a little dirt on you. Well, I tell you, but you so you so you've been around. I mean, like, I like to say I've been around for a few decades. As have you, you have you ever seen the craziness? That is what's happening right now? Well, what was that virus? That was around a few years ago. Oh, the swine flu. That was what 10 years ago. Yeah, that was kind of security. But, uh, But then there's always the flu. And every time I got in my doctor's office is like Have you had your flu shot? I'm like I have never had a flu shot. And how many? And how many times May I ask in recent years? Have you had the flu? How many times would know how many times in recent years have you had the flu? But, uh well, I'm not really sure to tell you the truth because I have such severe allergies. Okay, neuropathy that I have The same sentence. Okay. And then those last for a few days. You know, a couple of days here in there, You know, I always know from in January men march, I'm gonna be so sick. That I can't barely get out of bed. But I just know that's what's going to happen, and I get through it. So you prepare yourself each year. But so you're not sure if you've had the floor? Yeah, That's right, Matt. I'm never sure cause we go with a bunch of, um Uh, Children, grandchildren all their lives, You know little germ carriers. Yeah, I know exactly what you're gonna say. Because I've often said that you get around a group of kids and they are really, really good at going out. I like I've got kids. I know what it's like they when they're young, they're really, really good at going out there for their great at finding the Germans finding the virus is and then you know, kind of like a cat goes out and brings you home The the lizard of the rabbit Here, there. Kids are greater. Bring home the germs in the viruses because they're givers. You know they like they like to share but and I get them the them but actually, I've got I've got a little cat sanctuary over here and I'm afraid I'm going to give it to them because I heard of one case and Fort works for someone in their dog just did. Did you hear that? I've heard that I've heard that I've heard cases. I've thank you, Katie. So much for the phone call. Appreciate it. I've heard cases about you know people. In theory, it may have given it to their dog may have given it to their cat. I've heard The exact opposite. I've and again it goes back to what I was saying at the very beginning of the program today. What we have lost in this country is trust. We do not know who to believe anymore. We have no idea. Because if you turn on CNN It's almost as though you know if you have two TVs and you turn on CNN on one of them, and you turn up on the other one. Well, you know, it's getting harder and harder to tell those two apart. But let's just for the sake of argument. Say we got those two networks up. It's it's almost like they are into alternate universes. You see the stories on CNN? You see the stories on Fox. It's like they're all in some cases, 180 degrees off. It's like, who do you believe, and most people get very brand loyal over the years? I mean, I remember I'm old enough to remember. When CNN actually was news. I'm going back to Bernie Shaw. Guess it was what the mid late nineties. Maybe even earlier than that. There was actually a time when you know CNN hey, was like news. It's they gave you the fact that it's sun. Somehow I remember when that was the Clinton news network. So there was this transmogrification to quote Marvin the Martian over the over the decades in the years Into whatever it is that they've morphed into now. And so if you if you depend on CNN, or you depend on Fox, which is never a good idea to depend on one source for your news..

Our opponents want to turn America into communist Cuba or socialist Venezuela on we're not gonna let that happen. Our opponents agenda is a war on workers. A war on faith and I wore on our police. Well, President Trump along with Vice President Pence on the road today. And, of course, Biden is holding these drivin events. Those just looks weird to me, but In any case, Biden and Harris.

We're gonna let you give your final message to your fellow Texans and people all over the country. For that matter. Make your case for Trump or Biden on so far no Biden call's That's not surprising. We want to keep Texas red. We want to keep Texas the way it is. We like the tax base. We like the jobs. We like the energy sector. And so does President Trump. With me from time to time, his mark water and he's with me again. Mark Water is the director of community strategic communications for the Trump campaign marked Good to have you again. It's here. It's game day. It truly is. You know the times. I remember The times we've talked before about you know what's coming. What's coming? Well, it's here. We're literally hours away. And so much hangs in the balance. Yeah, and the interesting thing and this is something that it's kind of. It's not unique, but I think you know, we're actually giving kind of Ah little bit of a look under the hood because I know while the national media right now they're all focused on these last minute hold and things like that. We're not in a position of looking at Bulls were actually looking at the map. We're looking at the votes. We actually know the number of votes that have been cast the number of votes that are outstanding who we can plan to drink. And our campaign manager Bill Stepien just tweeted out a great state by state on the battleground states. Review of where we are. We're actually ahead of where we were in 2016. We know exactly the right number of votes. We needed better yet. We know we've got him in the tank ready to deploy tomorrow. So I'm feeling very confident. We just gotta make sure we do our work and get out there. Make sure every votes counted and do not leave any vote on the table. Now, Speaking of every vote being counted, a Ah, judge just threw out a suit brought by the GOP members in Harris County, one of the largest counties in Texas. Saying, No, You can't throw out. I think it's 120 some odd 1000 of these drive by ballot. You know, I've never understood Mark. After watching the people of Iraq with her little purple fingers showing that they voted under sniper fire is a stand in line. I don't I don't understand fight. We put mohr time, money and resource into dispensing lottery tickets at 7 11 than we do with the voting integrity. People just need to get up and go vote. Right? And and that's one of the great things that we have an advantage in the Republican with the Trump campaign in Republican Party is we've got the largest ground organization and Bob Volunteers to go out and help drive that. Get out the vote message. I mean, we have the data. We have communication tools. I'm just going to tell you right now. You know if your phone's gonna light up tomorrow it's going to be text messages from us emails from us. There will be people probably knocking on your door if you haven't voted yet. The best way to get out. Stop it Vote. Because way because we know how to get it. We know where you are. You know, Tomorrow is a red letter day here. A W B AP sort of being the voice of Texas if you will. Every way out of meeting earlier this morning, everybody involved in election coverage tomorrow. I know I do my show from 2 to 5, and then I'm back from seven to midnight, so You know, people, they they have to understand what What's it stayed here? You know, you want to go the way of Socialist America. You vote for Biden and Harris. If you want to return this country to what it once was, prior to the pandemic economically in every other way, you vote for Trump. And when you say Martin talking with Mark Lauder, director of strategic communications for the Trump campaign, When you said just a moment ago. You know where we are and that we've got the votes in the tank. How do you come to that assessment? Well, so with with massive database of voters that we have, you know, we know who's requesting early ballots. We know they've been turned in. We know who is more likely to be an election day. Voter who's not. I mean, just take a look in Scranton where the president just was a few minutes ago. You know, already Within an hour. We knew that we had 13,000 people sign up for that 80% of the people who signed up to go to the president's rally had not voted yet. 25% were not right. I'm sorry 20% were not registered. Republicans and 25% did not vote in 2016. Now we just, You know, we may have already known them because they may have previously signed up. But those are just now that you know thousands of voters in a state that we won by 44,000 votes that we are now aware of. And we can email you make sure you know where your polling places texted to remind you to get out vote if you haven't done so already all of those kinds of things and you know what you know about our digital advantage. You know about our ground game with a lot of people don't realize those two things work together as we get close to the election. And something else else worth mentioning. Elections are in many cases, one by thousands of votes, not millions of votes, but thousands of votes, and that's why it's so important. Oh, you're absolutely right. And, you know, I've said this a message. You know, every interview, I do. It doesn't matter whether you're in a red state, blue state or swing state. Every vote counts, because you know, even if even if the presidential election is a foregone conclusion, you know in in many states. There are there are local elections, state local elections also congressional races. We need to get some of these radical Democrat Congress. People out of Washington, D. C. Gets Republicans and there's You take away the gavel from Nancy Pelosi in the squad. Amen to that more mark the final message because we probably won't talk to you again before the election, you know, speak to everyone listening a final message as we head into the election and in a mirror matter of hours. And it is very simple, You know? Do you want a country that is re opened or closed back down, locked down? Do you want a country that's got lower taxes or higher taxes, strong military or weak military you want You want a president who's tough on China. Or one who's weak on China, or one who supports our oil, industry and energy industries, your Second Amendment rights or ones who say they're against oil, fossil fuels energy and done I mean, these are these are these are basic questions. And when people ask me, you know if Texas is actually imply I'm like no For exactly that reason, And you know, Texas is not a swing state. It's a trump state. We're going to do tomorrow. Mark Well said, couldn't have said it better myself. It's always a pleasure to talk with you. Mark Water director of strategic communications for the Trump campaign. All the best to you. I would imagine this is going to be a long day and even even longer night so hopefully we'll talk after the election. Absolutely gorgeous. Alright Mark Lauter will step aside When we come back. We'll give you a chance to give your final message tear of fellow Texans..
