Ryan Girdusky: The GOP Disenfranchised White College Educated Voters
"I want to begin by asking you to tell us a little bit about what you think happened in the midterms because I know people have sort of been debating this. The last month, you know, what happened, what we can do better next time. And I think that we need to talk about it because that way we can have a better game plan moving forward into 2024 and future elections so that we aren't blindsided again. I think there are a lot of things happen. I don't think there's any singular one lesson to be learned. I think there's multiple lessons. So let's start with the fact that turnout. The media has created this narrative, first of all, there was a quote unquote youthquake that millions of young people angry about abortion came out and voted in masses to elect Democrats. The data so far shows that that didn't happen at all. Didn't happen whatsoever. Republican turnout was actually extremely good in this election. And minority turnout, especially among Democrats, was extremely poor. That's why you're looking at Republicans probably getting over 40% of the Asian vote, somewhere in the high 30s of the Hispanic vote. And the black vote remains basically stagnated about 10%. Where Republicans faltered was among white college educated voters, especially independent voters. They were really disenfranchised with the Republican Party, even though they agree with them on issues like crime and immigration, and they don't approve of Joe Biden's performance in The White House. They were very upset over two big issues one being abortion and the idea of a national abortion ban. And secondly, the narrative over the fact that the 2020 election was so they didn't want to look backwards. They wanted to look forward. And I think that and on top of that, you've had major Republican both candidates and senators like Rick Scott and candidates like masters talking about the idea of privatizing social security, really, really irritated a lot of independent voters. So take us to Arizona, Arizona had a four Republicans win and four Republicans lose. The four who lost ran, it was a Blake Lake of hobby and in that one other guy they ran as a ticket on the 2020 election being stolen. The four who won was Kimberly E Tom Thorne and then two other big Republicans and they won on conservative platform issues. Tom Thorne defeated an incumbent running against CRT running against DEI running against bilingual education. Kimberly Lee Yi is not a moderate Republican. She's very conservative. But their message was looking forward to not backwards and they won. And I think that in states and places where the issues were very quality of life conversations like New York with crime. You serve Republican search and when the election really became about Donald Trump, you saw Republicans lose.
Senator Josh Hawley Discusses the Future of Senate Leadership
"Now is senator Josh hawley, one of the few fighters in the U.S. Senate, and I am so happy and thrilled that senator hawley's influence will be increasing because JD Vance is going to the U.S. Senate senator Holly, how you doing? I'm doing great, Charlie. Thanks for having me. I know you and I are both on the ground with JD Vance. I wish we would make Blake masters as well, but sending JD is a big deal. Thank you. And thank you for all your help with that. Let me just kind of start with the leadership election or selection I should say yesterday. Tell us what you can without breaching any confidentiality of what happened behind closed doors with what looks like now senator McConnell is going to be continued leader of the Senate minority. Well, listen, I'll just tell you what my position has been, which is that I voted for new leadership. I said before the election, Charlie, that I wasn't going to support to Mitch McConnell for leader. I don't think that he has led the party in a good direction. I think the results of this last election make that clear. And I think we need a different direction clear. I mean, if you look at this last election and you say, oh, everything's fine. It's just fine, you know? We don't need to make any changes. I just say, if you're a Republican, you know, you're delusional. Particularly if you're one of these D.C. Republicans that didn't give the candidates anything to run on, that didn't actually put forward a coherent agenda. The basically just set off Biden sucks. He's no good vote for us. You know what we learned out of this election is that independent voters, they actually want you to come out and fight for them. They actually want you to come be on their side. It's not enough to say it's our turn. You have to go show them that you're willing to fight for them. And I don't think Senate leadership has done that. So Charlie, I voted no and you know, I urged for there to be new leadership, and I asked both of the guys who were running, which was Mitch McConnell and Rick Scott from Florida. I asked both of them, what are you going to do to put forward an agenda that will actually deliver for the American people, not just talk, not just do press appearances, but what are you going to do that will actually deliver?
Where's the Talent on Our Side? Joe and Victoria Weigh In
"So big issue we've discussed, where's the talent on our side? The big, big brains. And I don't want to I'm looking. You know, it's not just the last four years of Trump. I would say from the aughts onwards, we didn't have the gingrich's, the bakers. We didn't have the people who were, you know, the good Machiavelli's of the right inside the building. Did we not cultivate them? Did they all go off into the private sector? Give us explanations. Well, the bush people don't cultivate new talent. They're not interested in it. They don't care about it because it's all about them. It's a network. That's why when Jeb Bush ran in 2016 and that famous, okay, you can applaud now. That's because that was a sense of entitlement. And they surrounded themselves with the same players, the same tired old people who didn't understand what's changing in American politics. There are great talented people out there. We just haven't done a very good job of cultivating them. And again, I blame ronna mcdaniel. I believe the blame Rick Scott. There's all kinds of wonderful talented people. The guy from Wisconsin, who was the first chief of staff for president Trump. Ryan. Brian's priebus. What did they do to bring in great new brains? What they did? They went and got the old people from the Republican national quote to quote on exactly this issue, just to give it a little bit of a flavor a little bit of color. I think it was some rag Vanity Fair or something. Bannon gave an interview about the first four weeks in The White House, and he actually used this phrase when we needed 4000 positions filled. Presidential appointments. He said, I sat down with reince and we, quote, made a drug deal with the RNC to fill those positions. And it's really quite remarkable that we achieved what we did, given the fact that the old schlep of the skull and crossbones and all the good old boys filled those positions. They went and found every rhino they could, and president Trump had a rhino in charge.
Republicans Find Their Way Through Tough Conversations
"More to glory, America, bonjour, high candidate who you're alive inside the beltway on this Thursday I'll be on special report tonight on the panel with Brett bear talking about the house finally being called for the Republicans. Mitch McConnell being returned to lead the GOP Senate. One of his colleagues, Jim Langford, just won a thunderous reelection for another 6 years. I'm not sure if at the sentence or a big win. I know you want to serve the people of Oklahoma. Welcome back, senator lankford. How are you? I'm doing very well. Good morning. Yeah, by the way, it's a bit of a boat. It's a victory and a sentence as well. So I'm very glad for you. I was at a national Republican senatorial committee event, probably a year and a half ago with you and your wonderful wife and with Rick Scott and everyone. You know, Republican senators may have disagreements. But they actually, they don't have fisticuffs. I tried to explain that in the first hour I'd like you to expand on that. Any partnership. And I've run two law firms with more than 20 partners. And they disagree. And then they get that they have a vote in the end. You go along with what the vote is. Is that the way the Senate Republican caucus will work? That is the way that it works actually. There's always frustration. We obviously underperform what we thought we would during the elections last week. So there's a need for a very serious conversation about where we're going. How we communicating the issues, what are the key things that we're actually trying to be able to promote and put out there. Those are hard conversations that need to have and we spent hours Monday and Tuesday going through some very Frank conversations on that as we should.
McConnell reelected Senate GOP leader; Scott's bid rejected
"Mitch McConnell will be back as the Republican Senate leader amid a party in fighting I'm not going anywhere For the first time in 15 years as leader McConnell faced a challenge but Republicans reelected him over Rick Scott I'm pretty proud of 37 to ten Those who voted against McConnell included allies of Donald Trump who encouraged Scott to confront McConnell There has been public GOP unrest in both chambers of Congress after a disappointing midterm showing but the vote leaves McConnell poised to become the Senate's longest serving leader next year Sagar Meghani Washington
GOP Sen. Scott mounts long-shot bid to unseat McConnell
"Following the midterms both parties in the Senate are gearing up for the new year with Democrats remaining in the majority majority leader Chuck Schumer is celebrating the midterm results We had a great happy and spirited discussion in our caucus Democrats are ready and eager and united For the Republicans Florida's Rick Scott is mounting a long shot bid to unseat the minority leader Mitch McConnell I have the votes I will be elected The only issue is whether we do it sooner or later Scott's unexpected challenge to McConnell comes as Republicans are wrestling over a lackluster performance in the midterms when the party out of power historically sees significant gains Ed Donahue Washington
Fixing the Election Process
"You know, we've been griping about Katie Hobbs. Katie Hobbs is in the battle for the governor's race in Arizona and Carrie Lake we all think is a rockstar and we've heard about the shenanigans that hit seemingly taken place in Arizona that race has yet to be resolved. So we'll keep you abreast of that. But I have heard a lot of people talking about Katie Hobbs and as well they should. She's incompetent. She's over the elections, the Secretary of State there. So she's over the elections process, no doubt about it. But I just before I go back to this issue with how then governor Rick Scott, and then subsequently, governor Ron DeSantis got our election system safe and secure and got us to a place where literally at 7 8 p.m. at night on election day we're like, okay, we have nothing else to talk about here in Florida because things wrap up so quickly. Marco Rubio tweeted out earlier today and I retweeted it, you can follow me on Twitter or any place social media, the Carl Jackson show that is the Carl Jackson show. But he tweeted out, listen, we have 7 and a half million voters here in the state of Florida. We wrap up our elections in about 5 hours. You know, basically what's up with the people and I'm paraphrasing at this point 'cause I'm not looking at his tweet directly. What's up with the people? What's up with the states that have 2 million voters and can't get it done? It takes days.
Gov. Ron DeSantis: More Republicans Than Democrats Registered in FL
"You managed to you and managed to with your policies and so forth I mean completely change things in four years I mean four years ago you won by what 50,000 votes or so Yeah so if you look back before I became governor the marquee race each every two years Rick Scott 2010 governor Obama 2012 president Rick Scott reelection 14 Donald Trump in 16 and then me and 18 Those are all one point races or less And that was kind of the norm in Florida politics We had almost 300,000 more registered Democrats in Florida than Republicans When I got elected well today we have 306,000 more registered Republicans than Democrats had a lot of people come that don't affiliate with a party but are with us largely because they were refugees from COVID lockdowns and they came to the free state of Florida So this electorate is going to be the first electorate that we've ever had that has a Republican advantage at all We've never had more ours than these in Florida history and to have 306,000 in just a four year period That's almost a 600,000 registration shift in favor of Republicans We've never seen anything like that A lot of that's migration Mark but honestly if you look at the number of people that go from D to R in Florida versus R to D we are converting so many more Democrats to Republicans than vice versa It's not even funny particularly in a place like Miami dade county

Can Don Bolduc Take New Hampshire From Democrats?
"General, you know, full disclosure. I didn't think it could win and I told people that over and over again, I was for chuck Morrison the primary and then cotton slapped me around a little bit and said, the general's going to win and then Rick Scott said they're poor and money in New Hampshire. What happened? Well, you know, it's called hard work. It's called perseverance called never quitting. And that's the kind of campaign that we ran. You've got my voice. I just got over that. Whenever you go out and do 5, 6, 7 events a day, you get the voice. So we'll slow down and give you the chance. Take your time. Tell people about yourself because if anyone's listening in New Hampshire, general bulldog's going to make a great senator. Well, I feel that my whole life has been centered around public service, whether it was working as working on our family farm as a farmer and providing a public service of food, dairy products and other things to our community or a police officer in laconia or 33 plus year career in the military. Going from private to general, my whole life has been oriented on serving others.
How Inflation Is Hurting Agriculture
"Now, senator, the one thing we haven't talked about, Wisconsin is a huge agricultural state. And I often forget to talk to candidates about agriculture and I apologize to my farming friends out there. Why does inflation doing to dairy and farming generally? It's crushing them. I mean, when you take a look at the just the cost of fertilizer skyrocket. So dairy farmer does not get the benefit of the increasing milk prices at the grocery store. Somewhere, those increasing prices are going some of the somebody else's pockets. So no, dairy farmers, the farmers are always Wisconsin, are struggling. As you just in general, inflation crushes everybody. It destabilizes the economy. That's why it's so easy to slip into stagflation. You have rising prices and it just crushes economic activity, resulting in what we just saw the last few quarters, negative economic growth, and we have to recognize growing our economy as the number one component of the solution to get us out from underneath this massive debt load. But it's amazing what Democrats have done in such a short period of time that just destroying our economy, they're destroying people's savings accounts. Destroying people's retirement, the destroying our country. They have to be stopped. They need to be defeated.
Ron Johnson Makes Case for Reelection in Wisconsin
"Doctor Oz not only won last night, so did senator Ron Johnson Mandela Barnes is more radical than John fetterman. John fetterman lied about all of his previous positions. I wonder if Mandela Barnes is trying the same thing. Ron Johnson joins us now. Good morning, senator. How goes the effort up north? Good morning, Hugh and yes, he is lying about everything. That's all Democrats have, they can't descend 40 year high inflation record gas prices, skyrocketing crime, deadly drugs flowing through our open border. They've got nothing other than lies and character assassination and they have no problem doing it, by the way. So just pointing about our politics is the left has no problem lying through their teeth and of course we have the media amplifying their lives. I've never seen a combined arms campaign of the media of the DNC and democratic candidates fail so miserably, though, senator, because you can't tell people that inflation isn't real and you can't warn them, you can't not warn them about crime. Let's start with crime. Because I understand in Wisconsin, it is a huge issue. It is from 2019 to 2021 statewide murders are up 70%. You may walk the same time frame 93%. We're on phase two have another record number of murders in Milwaukee. Carjackings are way up. And of course, we just witnessed the trial of Christmas prayed murderer that is now in the hands of the jury, hopefully to decide quickly. But of course, that's spilled over me. That was the result of low bail no bail policy. That guy should not have been out on bail. Those 6 people should be alive today. They'll 60 people should not have ever been injured, but that is exactly the kind of policies that the radical left is pushing on society and making society and our neighborhoods far less safe.
Can Republicans Pick up Washington State's Senate Seat?
"Washington state votes by paper. It is, everyone gets mailed a ballot. I've never liked the system. I don't trust the system. It helps Democrats. But our friend Tiffany smiley may be your best man. Yeah. What do you think? I think she's got a shot. I mean, Tiffany has doubled the fundraising of patty Murray who's been there 36 years. Patty Murray is just not likeable. I mean, who likes patty Murray? She's not nice to anybody. And so I think unfortunately for patty Murray, like Hassan and New Hampshire, they know her. They don't like her. And Tiffany is a great candidate. I think she has a real shot the last poll I saw she was only down a couple. I think it's going to be a good election night for us. What we're seeing with the early ballots is it's really a good year for us in contrast to my race and 18. It was a bad year for us. It's a good year for us. We're going to have a better turnout. So if you're down a couple, you got a really good chance of winning.
How John Fetterman's Debate Performance Hurt the Democrats
"Senator from Florida chairman of the national Republican senatorial committee is here to run down the races for us and senator Scott. Let me begin by applauding you. You patiently plotted through a withering barrage of consultant criticism because if you weren't using them during the summer and now the Republicans are set to regain the majority in the United States Senate and it's because of your leadership. So thank you. You've done a great job. Are you very nice, but we've got great candidates. They run great races. You look at their debate. All of them have done a great job in their debates. And Biden's not gotten any better. And the democratic candidates have to defend the Biden policies, and they're not defensible. Let me begin by saying, I'm going to put in the win column. Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, and which content. I'm going to talk to senator Johnson a little bit. We all saw last night's meltdown by John fetterman. JD was on yesterday. He's winning comfortably in North Carolina, Ted bud's winning comfortably. Question about that. Do you believe that John fetterman's performance last night hurt Democrats everywhere? Because I do. Oh, absolutely. I think this is what they've done. They've come across as radical candidates. They've come across as half of the tribe. They can't defend Biden's policies. They try to change their policies and act like they're somehow bipartisan, middle of the road, things like that. And if everyone's just actually the least example, I mean, he took it chase the position on fracking change his position abortion changes position on crime, changes position on basically everything they ask. And so I think that's what people see it. And that one was a significant national people a lot of people watch that. And what they're seeing is a Democrat. I mean, they don't have a, they don't have, they don't have anything. There's nothing that they can brag about. I
"rick scott" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Listened to what he said. Head of a church and they kicked people out of the church for being just a few dollars behind the rit. Here's a guy that abused his wife, he didn't stand up for anything. He's voting for abortion up until the moment of birth. Raphael Warnock has it. These are pretty heavy accusations roger. I don't know if any of them are true or not. I don't know if this will be aired out in the campaign, but do you expect a lot more where that came from? Sure. About a reverend here. I mean, you can just feel the kind of projectile vomiting of like, let's just send everything possible out of there. And Rick Scott have the person who I believe has paid one of the largest Medicaid fraud finds in history is not necessarily not really someone to be the traffic cop of morality in a lot of these things. And you could tell in his voice he's so hurried and he's just trying to kind of machine gun this stuff out. And that's certainly no way to get it to actually to stick at all. And they're panicking. It's far back as when I first started to even just read news, let alone politics. I always thought there was a fundamental kind of shall we say insincerity to be polite about the moral majority voting kind of movement. I always thought there was just a core kind of fraudulence to it. And lo and behold, especially in the last 5 or 6 years, we see that it's all circumstantial. It's all transactional. There's an absolute vacuum of principle there. And it's all about getting the majority in the U.S. Senate so that they can move forward and agenda that marginalizes women and increases tax cuts for the wealthy. And you can see the panic as they see that slipping away because the debate on Friday. What's the reverend's job on Friday? The reverend's job, it's odd, it's a very, very odd situation in the last few years when it's become the Democrats default posture to be the adult in the room. That used to be the province of our friends across the country. But do you just let them do this to himself? Or does the Warnock have to go on the Internet? We're not has to go in there and be as stable, sober steward of civic and public life and dependable somewhere between the 40 yard lines of the American kind of ideological spectrum. Football reference. And then just when the other guys digging, you know, just don't take away a shovel. Okay, is that the move here, Rick, or does Warnock need to go on the attack? You know, I think Rogers got something to this notion that you've got a guy like Rick Scott coming down there to campaign for Herschel Walker. I wouldn't attack Rick Scott, but I would definitely, if I were Rafael Warner, use the opportunity to say, hey, look, these guys get in power. They're agenda is take away your social security. Take away your welfare checks. Take away your Medicaid, make you pay higher prices for drugs. And I would, I would stick that right on Herschel Walker and say, you just campaigned with him. You tell me you disagree with everything that he's for. And I think he has to go on the attack because the reality is it is a dead heat. And there's nothing guaranteed in this election and we've seen Georgia, you know, be pretty rocky when it comes to outcomes. So I think sitting on at one point lead is a disaster. Fisk and Davis, with us here for a couple of more moments our panel today, I've got to talk about what's going on in Los Angeles, because while this fire is burning for Republicans in Georgia, there's a real mess for some Democrats in LA. This is sound from inside the LA city council
Is Cleveland Area Key to Winning Ohio?
"You're up in the steel valley, Cleveland, of course, is still car town. I'm glad they picked that turf. That's where Democrats have to win by a lot. If you get attention and hold down turnout, you'll help the ticket up and down throughout Ohio. Yeah, that's right. And you know, obviously, the area has trimmed more and more red over the last 20 or 30 years. And I think really accelerated. So hopefully we can perform well on Tim Ryan's shirt. I think that we will. We wanted to do the debate in the Cincinnati area, which is obviously where I'm from and where I live now, unfortunately, just didn't work out the timing is a little tight on the campaign and unfortunately that location just didn't work out.
J.D. Vance Is Focused on Winning Ohio
"You're winning Republicans are winning across the country. How do you maintain good order and discipline as you march forward? Because you got to run through the tape. You know, I don't think it's that hard. You just have to be very focused and the last ones on the campaign season really does that to you. I think when I think about things that we could screw up, one is we got to keep the fundraising momentum because obviously Tim Ryan and a lot of the other national Democrats are raising a lot of money from their small dollar digital operation. So we got to make sure we keep the fundraising momentum. And the second thing here is we got to make sure these debates that we prosecute the case smartly that we don't make any student mistakes, but we had some good Republican primary debates. I'm not worried about that. And like you said, I think we are winning. I think keep the momentum and hopefully we can expand a lead a little bit here the next one.
Georgia Senate Race Heats up
"Want to run through the Senate map with you, senator. I want to start. I was going to start with the 5 must holds by Republicans, but let's start with the would be Republican takeover in Georgia since Herschel walkers in the news is Herschel's walker's campaign damaged by the abortion story in The Daily Beast or the angry tweets by his son. Well, look, this is just textbook one O one for the Democrats. They know they're going to lose. Herschel Walker is running the good race. He's a great candidate. Raphael Warnock is Joe Biden. And it's just this lies cheat and smear. That's what they Democrats do. They did to break cathode. It declares Thomas. They're doing it through walker, but he's going to win. And so The Daily Beast story might fit into that category, do the tweets from his son matter. No. I mean, you know, people are going to vote about. They care about what's hurt showing Raphael Warnock gonna be better for the economy or your kids education for public safety for a secure border for our lethal military. It's a pretty easy choice.
Why Is the Republican Party Putting Up With This?
"The Democrat party does with the regime asks the Democrat party has become an instrument of the CIA, the FBI, the woke Department of Defense, the question I want to ask today is why is the Republican Party putting up with this? Why is the Republican Party authorizing more money to be sent to Ukraine and allowing the reckless escalation of a conflict halfway around the world? That very well could result in nuclear war. We had several politicians here on this program, senator Rick Scott senator Kramer, and every time I asked them about Ukraine and I have a lot of respect for both those men, I think they're men of integrity, but I'll be honest, when I ask them about these topics, the lack of depth on the issue is extraordinary. For example, senator Kramer came on this program. Again, nice man, we had a nice disagreement on this. And he said there is really no limit to the amount of money that we will send to Ukraine. This is complete and total madness. Why is the Republican Party trusting and Mark milley and Lloyd Austin and Tony blinken and Brennan, the same people that have messed up Afghanistan and messed up every single foreign policy blunder of the last couple of years of Jake Sullivan stumbling into the best case scenario another Afghanistan, the worst case scenario all out nuclear war.
"rick scott" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"And tell them you heard about it from Dwayne that producer Hugh actually has on the Hugh Hewitt show. Talk about senator Rick Scott joins me as chairman of the national Republican senatorial committee. Good morning senator Scott, how are you? Yeah, here's going to be a interesting lot of money has been spent the last two weeks in New Hampshire. But here's what I know. Maggie has a problem. People know her in New Hampshire, and they don't like her. She's been, I think, personally. I mean, her campaign $9 million in her favorables was still in the low 40s and Biden's numbers are bad. So whoever gets out of that primary, I think we have a great show. I think we're going to win. I think we're going to win New Hampshire, actually. Now let's run down the map. I want to start with the seats like New Hampshire held by a Democrat and we'll come back to that next time you're on talking about New Hampshire and who the nominee is. Georgia, Herschel has surged ahead of Rafael warning in a couple of polls. Here's what's happened here. Two things have happened. One Herschel's taken the offense. He's got a great communications person. He's taken the offense. He's leading the polls now by three points. We've defined warning. We started early and we find him. Remember, he got through the general election in November 2020 with two to one save unsafe. That's not where he is now. He's down, he's basically 5 44, 44 on favor unsafe. We're going to win in Georgia. Herschel's running a great race. He's just a likeable guy and as a caller said to me, we've known her show for 40 years in Georgia and we like him. And that matters. I want to compliment you on candidate recruitment senator Scott Jo O day is America's candidate. I'd have him on every day. If I was later in the day there, he's a great candidate. What do you feel about Colorado? I think we had a great shot. The last poll I saw has him down one. And here's why we're going to win in Colorado. One Bennett is not well thought of. His number sees about 44% approval. So that's not good. Number two is Biden's numbers are under 40 numbers under 40 in what people always say, oh, Colorado is all blue. Well, they don't like Biden. And they're not enamored with spinning. Oh, days running a great race. So he's got a great background. His wife has done some great ads in Spanish to help him. I think he's going to win like I do the Hispanic vote. I think it's going to be the game changer. The Hispanic vote is going to be the reason we win in Colorado. And in Arizona, as well, let me play for you, senator Mark Kelly asked by a local Arizona TV anchor yesterday because he won't do any national media about grading Joe Biden. How is he doing? Here is that exchange. Cut number ten. Your thoughts on his job. Is he done a good job, do you think? Hey, you know, you know, first of all, it's not my job to give him a report card. Okay, it is his job to give him a report card. What did you think of that senator Scott? Well, they don't want to be close to Joe Biden. He's toxic. I mean, I think he's a variety in Arizona and stuff like 34%. So he's only been close. But by the way, Kelly, Kelly is a liar. The guy sits there and acts like he's an oh, he's an independent when he goes to Arizona. When he comes up here, chuck Schumer says jumping says how high he votes a 100% of the time which Chuck Schumer is building against border security three times. He's done nothing to stop this fentanyl problem that nothing to stop this inflation. I mean, Mark Kelly is a complete liar. In the contrast, Blake masher is a he is a great individual. He's a business guy. He's working his butt off. You saw heritage action raised $5 million that are in that race now to help make sure we continue to find Kelly. So what we did with Kelly, we did the exact same thing. We started defining him last year. His approval rages are under 50%. So I think Blake master is going to win. I do too. Now, I think the mortal lock though is Nevada. Adam laxalt has been my friend for a decade. He should have been the governor. He was a great attorney general. I think he's going to be the next senator and here you have another candidate he knows the state intimately well and not Ocasio mastro Cortez is a Cortez masto is simply the invisible senator along with Bennett. They are the twin invisible centers and master Cortez. It's just a Cortez method. It's just not a good candidate. Yeah. Well, she's not hard worker. No one knows what she's done. Biden's numbers are in the 30s. Her numbers are way under 50. And by the way, Adam is a hard worker. He knows this state. He was a successful attorney general. He's going to do really well with Hispanic, but which I think is something like 23 or 24% of the vote. Yes. Hispanics are fed up with Democrats. They're fed up with Joe Biden. They don't like Joe Biden. They're fed up with him. They don't like what the Democrats have done with the public school system. So I think Adam actually is going to, I mean, we've got so many opportunities because what we did, we defined the Democrats early and we got great candidates..

"Enough. You can fly. By the way, did you follow what happened with the number of people coming out of Afghanistan? You talk about immigration. You mean the refugees or do you mean the illegals that are coming through mexicali to Yuma? The people came after the debacle in Afghanistan. So I'm on Homeland Security. So we're supposed to be doing the investigation. So we want to do that. So we were supposed to be investigating. So we said, we want to know how many people came from Afghanistan who came. So guess what? You probably know all this. Oh no, you know why you don't? Because they were only tell us in a classified setting. Are you kidding me? Was it classified? Nothing. These people that were given refugee status. Is that right? So 79,000 people came. I asked it, how'd they come? Well, they were at the airport. In Kabul. That's how he picked them. I said, how many Americans out of 79,005 thousand? How many people had special visas 2000? I said, have you interviewed all the 79,000? Well, we didn't have time. Do you know where they are since they came into America? No, do they are they legally able to stay here? Yes. Where are they now? We don't know. They were as soon as you know how you know how they brought them into the bases. They could leave any time they want. They were given they were given ID, going where they went. Do you feel comfortable now? No. So senator, when I, and so I think you can sympathize when I say that we need to put a pause on legal immigration. This is why. And one of my concerns and complaints is there's an oversimplification in Republican circles where they say legal good, illegal bad. I mean, that example there, those are legal. Who the heck are these people? Do you know Charlie? In your business, my business life, what you do is they say, what's my purpose? That's exactly. That's what you serve the American citizen. Start there first. Yes. Okay. Say, what's my purpose then you get to then you can go over here, right? And our purpose should be to serve our people and strengthen the country. It's to represent the 330 million Americans. First and build this country. Look, I love people, just like you do. We want to help people. All right? You know, your heart goes out to people. But you do have an obligation first to represent the people in this country. So I know we're running low on time. I want to go through some of these, we're only going to mention some of these because we don't have time on it. Growth in the economy have to get away from socialism totally agree. Government reform and debt, thank you for mentioning the debt. It's ridiculous for how Republicans have kind of become the big deficit in debt. So I bring up something please. Have you seen the chips Bill? Okay, microchip Bill? Yeah, it's a similar democratic bill. I haven't really been. Okay, here's the following drama. You sure great. So we're $30 trillion worth of debt, okay? Chuck Schumer puts something on the floor with $52 billion. The next day it was $250 billion. So you should get in the semiconductor. You should get in the semiconductor business because here's how and that's Silicon Valley. Yeah, you should get because they all support us, right? So you should get in there this week because here's how it's going to work. We're going to give a company like Intel, $4 billion. So they have to build a plan America. We're going to give them $4 billion to give them a write off for another $4 billion and give them another $1 billion tax break. What do you have to do? Oh, build wherever they want to build is called semiconductor. And by the way, show you love this part. You know, it's anti China Bill. So do they have to stop expanding China? No, would that be too much? And do they have to this is true Charlie. And by the way, do they have to say we're not going to keep doing business in China when they invade Taiwan? No, of course not. That would be too tough. And so they could have some sort of LGBT center called a microchip. There's no obligation to call it the LGBT microchip system. I'm being facetious of course, but it would open it up. And oh, did we get any money back? Repatriation. I think guaranteed tax revenue is zero. Yeah, that's a really good example. Because I haven't found the details of that. No, I don't feel good. You're actually making me angry. So you talk about the debt and deficit fair fraud free elections, you're getting to some territory here, the media says you're not allowed to talk about. But our vote should never be diluted. I mean, people died for this, right? And people come to this country because they wanted to live in a free country where they get their they get their voice and their ideas. And so one, you know, we've got to make sure our elections are fair, you have to have voter ID, you can't have ballot harvesting, and then on top of that, you have to force our laws. So they try to steal my election in 18. I wouldn't buy $57,000 in Broward county. You know, I love her go. And the media agreed with me 'cause I explained what she was doing. So and the person we put in there did a great job you saw the 2020 election worked. It was flawless. So no vote should be diluted and Florida is a beautiful job of that. You talk about family, gender life and science. We got to build family, Charlie. We got to stop this where we tell people, we're going to give you more government money if you're not married rather than for your marriage. So would you go as far as senator to say we should we should pay people to have children? I mean, I don't know if it's our responsibility, but I think we just don't put people in position there in a worse position if they have kids. Yes. No, I think that's fair. I mean, I'm all for paying people to have kids, even though I say small government, obviously and all that. But man, there's nothing more important. We gotta fix our birth rate. It's declining. It's something I struggle with, right? My daughter has 5 boys, so she's doing her part. Yeah, totally. It's the other has two, so she's a little piker, but she's hopefully she'll have more. How many kids do you have? We didn't do it now. If we had two that came up by debate, somebody said, do you have any regrets by doing 2010, my opponent said, of course not. I said, yeah, if I didn't always be broke, we had more kids. Oh, that's so funny. You say here, men are men and women are women in unborn babies or babies. We believe in science. So you believe the Republican Party should be able to answer the question, what does a woman basically? Were you on that committee with senator Holly? That was one of the most extraordinary exchanges I've ever seen. Yeah. That stuff comes up to judiciary a lot. Yeah, well, that's the dramatic one. So you talk about religious liberty and big tech, America first. So I do want to ask you about this one, senator. He says, we are Americans not globalists. So I don't know if we're going to agree on this. And I think you said publicly and also privately, this is a tough vote and a tough situation. So putting America first, I struggle to see how and why sending $56 billion to Ukraine puts our country first. I can understand it completely. Here's how I looked at it. I mean, I worry about money, right? And so that part of me says, oh gosh, there's a lot of money. And the other part of me says that if your crane is willing to defend their own freedom, just like Israel, I admire Israel. We do support the financially, but they don't want men and women on their soil. American men and women on their soul to defend them. The Ukrainians are in the same position. They're willing to defend their freedom. And if we don't, if we don't stop, rush it there. Then if they get to Poland, we're in it. If they decide if Russia decides to go to Poland, there are men and women will be by treaty. If they invade Poland, then we're going to be at war. But they're already bordering Poland. I certainly have a million people in a military base. And Colin grad oblast or whatever they call it. Well, and then with whether these are good treaters or bad treaties, but they're right next to Lithuania too. 3 million people. So that was my, that was the way I looked at it. The way I looked at it was, right, it's a lot of money. And are we going to be better off to have spent that money to stop Russia there? Are we going to be in position that they're going to come into or invade Poland and the third? I appreciate how you're saying. Right or wrong. These are tough decisions, but do you think it's actually working? What I the briefings I get, they're doing well. We've not given them the resources to be able to push Russia back. So if we're going to here's what I believe, if we're going to do this, we get to do it to win. We don't do it for a draw. We do it to make sure Ukraine wins. Because otherwise, we'll be doing this. They'll be coming back for another $40 billion. At some point, because we'll be doing this for just like Afghanistan. We'll do it forever. And we can't. And it's not right to the American taxpayer. And so we should be given the weapons that they can win. They have the will to win. I couldn't tell you I know what's going to happen. Yeah, so what do you think would be too much money? Well, you'd hope not to have to do any more. You'd hope that you'd hope it's a lot of money, right? That's the GDP of North Dakota we've sent over there. And we don't even know where the weapons went. Right. I think, well, first of all, we tried, you know, they blocked that. I know. Rand. Or had the additional inspector general. But Charlotte don't worry, I completely understand. No, I know. And I want to thank you for your willingness to talk about it. So anyway, in closing, it's rescue America dot com. You have this plan. We got to run on a plan. Right. So what are we going to do? Why govern? Well, and also, and this is where I tell Republicans and lawmakers, if you're going to have disagreement, then let's have spirited discussion about it. Right, right? And it's okay. But let's fight over something. Yes. I mean, I tell people. I tell people, you have to agree with my plan. What's yours? Okay. So because I admire what Newt Gingrich did. One, they ran on something, and they did almost everything. The only thing they didn't get done was term limits. I think we have term limits for politicians and for bureaucrats. These people are running, they act like they own our government. And someone who's now been in D.C., are you seeing at least a little bit of a sea change of the citizens that are trying to get more involved or, oh, I think I'm optimistic. I'm optimistic. I think one, we're going to have a good November. I mean, here's the deal. We have good candidates that momentum on our side. We have to raise our money. If we do, we have a chance to get the majority of the House and Senate. Then we got then we have to govern. And we have to stand for something. And force it past doesn't make Biden veto if he's not going to do it. And put ourselves in a position that we get a Republican president in 24. We actually changed this country and we have to have dramatic change. We can't have this incremental change. It's got to be pretty dramatic. So yeah, I'm optimistic. You go around the country, people are excited. Look at what you're doing. I mean, what do you have 5000 students here? Yeah, 5000. I mean, think about that. Think about ten years ago because you got in 5000 students to come to something. I didn't have $5000. And the turning point bank account. Only in America. And you know what you're doing is you're exciting people. And you're showing them a path. To success. Because that's what you have. I mean think, well, when you're a kid, you don't know how am I going to get anywhere. So if somebody shows you I pass somehow, you can read a book, some of you have a mentor or whatever you do, then you can be excited about something. That's what you're doing here. That's right. There's a 12th point here that I want to mention on your cutting taxes and then America first, and then I didn't want to talk about this one super quick. I'm sorry. It's number ten. Religious liberty and big tech, the Republican Party sometimes a split on big tech. Is it time to maybe use state power to go after these big companies? I think we got to hold them accountable. I mean, they clearly censoring Republicans. They're making it difficult for us to raise money. I don't know, I don't get it. Because they shouldn't they want to capitalist system. They've done well with it. They've gotten to become billionaires out of it. And then they want to attack what we believe in. It doesn't make any sense. Well, you opened up my eyes on this chip thing. Because those are the same those are the same companies. Yeah. That they're all part of the censorship regime. And they're all kind of our buddy buddy. They all kind of operate. I didn't think about it that way. We shouldn't be giving money to companies that hate us. And that also business of the CCP, which is the final thing, there's a lot of anxiety right now about the CCP buying farmland across America. Do you think that should be illegal? Yes. I don't believe that our adversaries should be able to buy anything in America. Oh, I love that. They shouldn't be able to buy anything. Why would you let if you were in a business, right? Would you let your adversary leave space from you? Of course not. To complete it. They want to kill us. You know this. They want to destroy air force bases. We know what they're doing. And we're letting it happen. Senator Scott, we're at a time. You have to speak to our students. Yeah, this will be fun. Thanks for the invitation. Thank you. And thank you for putting forward a plan with clarity. And you could just smile and say this. You'd be a great leader one day. Thank you for next. So congratulations on what you're doing. By the way, what you're doing changes the country. Thank you. And so thanks for being here. Appreciate it. Thanks. Thank you so much for listening, everybody.

"Yes. Because, well, we'll have successful have failure and it forces this constantly to get better. Do you feel that most Republicans on Capitol Hill are comfortable talking about this? Because it seems as if some members are just always playing into the left's narrative when it comes to these issues. I think in politics, I think a lot of people don't want to talk about the tough issues. But that's what we get elected to do, right? And we've got to talk about the tough issues. We've got to lead, and not everybody's going to agree with this. And you know what? They could be right. So let's go talk about it and talk me out. I mean, for example, we have CRT classes at West Point. We have 6 million man hours in the military that have been dedicated to this stuff. And so now it's at the top levels of our military. Right. No, it's pervasive. This woke mentality is pervasive. It's in our companies. It's in our military. So our military has one job. People will be the most lethal force in the world to be able to defend our freedoms. That's their job. Our federal government really has two roles in my opinion. Make sure you have a military, the confederates, and do a good job on commerce, and get to leave them daylights out of our lives. Especially when the federal level, yes. But government should be as local as you can. Yes. People come to me all the time say, well, the federal government ought to do this. How did that become a federal issue? I might care about the issue, but that should be done at the city, the county or the state, it shouldn't be a federal issue. That's exactly right. And we fall into the trap of thinking that every solution has to come from D.C.. It can, but Charlie. We can't solve all of it. It also creates further radicalization if every state has to live under every other micromanaged elite preference of D.C., Missouri is going to have different preferences on a variety of issues than Manhattan. Just by geography and culture and religious preference and we get to move. That's exactly right. I moved to Florida. Yes. I was born in Illinois group in Kansas City. You know it's cold. I don't like cold. That's right. And I don't think it's, I don't think it's fair that the taxes are so much higher there. So I moved here. You have the mobility to be able to choose. So safety and crime number three, America is becoming a profoundly dangerous country. We've never seen anything like this. Violent crime is up double digits year over year. So you saw what happened was it yesterday, where the Zelda got attacked. Assassination attempt. With the knife. And then the guy is let out. Charlotte, would you ever have thought if you did that as a kid? Okay? On top of your parents went into reprimand you, right? In my generation, they used yardsticks. But that the government would just immediately let you out of jail. I mean, we've got to hold people accountable. I mean, I don't none of us want crime, but if you're going to commit a crime, you need to be hold accountable. And so what the Democrats want to do is they're soft on crime. They don't think people should be in jail for stealing. That's somebody else's stuff. Have you been to San Francisco lately?.

"Go to good ranchers, dot com that's good ranchers dot com promo code Charlie, good ranchers, dot com promo code Charlie. And it is morally wrong when you see what the government schools have done in so many of these inner cities, Chicago, Baltimore. How unfair New York that is. These poor kids, these poor kids that have mom and dad that have ambitions for their kids just like, you know, we all have for our kids, right? And they're stuck in these schools where they don't care what they learn to read or write, they don't care if they progress, they just automatically send them, they don't have any accountability. And so it's wrong. Look, the parents, the parents are working, they don't know. One thing that this happened with COVID, people have learned. That's right. So you should choose your kids school. Republican Party if it leaned into the school choice issue more would be rewarded politically. Okay, so then colorblind equality. This shouldn't have to even be on your list. Pretty simple, right? But why? Why are we doing this? Why should they separate us by color? You shouldn't ask people. Government should never ask you your skin color, your race, your religion, any of these things. They shouldn't ask you any of that. Any of those things that we should judge people based on their character. Is that what Martin Luther King said? Yeah, but this whole new regime that has taken over the kind of civil rights apparatus in the Department of Justice is doing the opposite. It's hyper focused on race, hyper focused on gender, hyper focused on these things. And, you know, so you say colorblind equality and what I find interesting about it is that the very people that say they're antiracist are acting remarkably racist and every single one of these programs. Right. And I mean, I would love to not talk about race as much as we do in our country right now. And we're Americans. Yes. We should talk about being Americans and how we want to continue to make this country a better place and create more opportunity. We can't we can't guarantee equality. Some people might not want to work as hard as somebody else. So we've got to say, we're going to give you this is going to be the land of opportunity. If you can go do whatever you want to do, if you want to go be an actor, go be an actor. If you want to run for president, do it if you want to build a business, do whatever you want to do. And we're not going to decide for you. Yes. I always thought about life this way. Government should get the heck out of my life, right? I love my mom. I hear her tell me what to do. I don't need government dictating things to me. Don't tell me where I need to go to school. Don't tell me how I need to think. Don't tell me any of those things. Let me lead my life. And allowing people to have the agency to choose and not be discriminated against just based on the color of their skin. And we'll all get better..

"Hey everybody, Tana Charlie Kirk show. We sit down with senator Scott from Florida. We don't agree on everything in this conversation, but I certainly do appreciate somebody that puts together a plan that's willing to say what they believe and then defend it. He came here with no notes, and honestly, he said, ask me anything. I want more politicians to do that. We agree on most everything, honestly, but we certainly disagreed on Ukraine and I pressed him a little bit on it. I think that spirit disagreements, what keeps our country strong. Get involved with turning point USA as well. TPUSA dot com. So enjoy this conversation with senator Rick Scott from Florida and I'd love your thoughts on it, freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com, enjoy. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running The White House folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy, his spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job. Building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, turning point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd dot com. With us is senator from the great state of Florida, senator Rick Scott. Where you are today. That's right. And you have thousands and thousands of thousands and thousands of young people and senator, I don't think you get the credit you deserve of laying the conservative foundation in Florida. You are a great governor before now that you are a senator. And so in trying to be a good guy. No, you're wonderful. It's hard up there. Yeah, I know. How is it different, by the way, running a state versus being part of a clown car? Well, you know, I built companies. And so I gave myself the title of CEO. Hired me. And so you get the CEO, you get to run things and governor you get to run things up there. You don't get to run anything. And it's completely dysfunctional. I mean, you know, my 8 years as governor, I never talked about party. I never talked about being a Republican. I talked about solving problems, okay? Up in D.C., it's all partisan. It's guys like Chuck Schumer wouldn't even talk to me. I mean, the only thing every time it brings up my name is when he attacks me on the student floor. So what we've got to do is we're going to go be problem solvers, right? As a business guy, you don't have a choice of saying, I don't like your politics. You say, so how do we solve the problem for customer? And that's why I try to do as governor. What do you think is the root of a lot of that dysfunction? I mean, I think one, it makes good TV. And two is just who we've elected. I think here's what I think about. I think you've got to have the present, the governor and the mayors have the biggest pulpits, right? And so you've got to have governors, presence of mayors that say, I'm going to focus on issues. Not be divisive. And if you look at Biden, he's divisive. He said, remember, he said he was going to be this unit or whatever he called himself. He's not at all. He attacks people. He attacks me. I mean, I just put out a plan to say, let's figure out how we rescue this country. And he attacks me. I mean, why would you attack you? I'm just curious, what did he say? I mean, he just said there's Rick Scott once to raise everybody's taxes. No, you know what I said? I said, if you're able bodied, right? You ought to go to work. Don't be dependent on government. Don't, I mean, you shouldn't be in public housing. I lived in public housing growing up. You shouldn't be on food stamps, okay? Unless you're working. So if you look, if you have a job and you don't get paid enough, I get it. But if you want to sit at home, that's wrong. We're on this together. It's really, really rich to get an attack from Biden about raising taxes. As he is the worst inflation ever, which is a tax on the American economy. And we will tax right now. So I want to talk about your plan because I first want to compliment you. You have a plan. That actually step one. Yeah, that takes a spine to do because it means you're going to have to defend certain things and disagree on certain things. And to be honest, I don't know if I agree or disagree on the issue. Both ways. I'll be honest because I could see some people that might have to pay more and at the same time, I think it is moral to have everybody invested in society. But we could talk about that. But I want to compliment you because one of my big complaints against GOP leadership is no one knows what the heck they stand for. So before we any further, why is it that you haven't been a senator for very long 2018, right? You come up with this plan. Why isn't this been done before before we get into some of the details? Well, I think I'm the only fortune 50 CEO than the Senate and partially you know in business is actually what you have to do. You have to write a plan and then you build a management team. You've probably done that here, right? At a smaller extent. But you build a plan, okay? You go get investors, right? And then you build a team around that. That's what we should be doing. And so we ought to, if we want to get something done, if I say, if I came to you and said, Charlie Charlie, I want to shoot an invest in me in my race, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I actually sure, you know, if I want to get anything done, what do you think? But that's what most candidates say though. And it's a remarkable. We shouldn't be doing that. I agree. And then hold us accountable. We should say, this is what we're going to do, and then hold me accountable. What I ran for governor, I said, I won my race by saying I have a 7 step plan to 700,000 jobs over 7 years. Okay? This state, people forget, and when I ran in ten, for governor, this state had lost 800,000 jobs in four years, home prices had dropped in half. 1.1 million homes from foreclosure, they were raising tuition 15% plus inflation. And so people said, oh gosh, a guy's got a plan to fix things. Maybe I'll elect that guy. And we did. That's a Florida lot of us don't remember. No, kind of right now it's the gold rush Florida where it's just endless boom and but that was in 2010. Wow. So as soon as I got elected, I met Rick Perry didn't know him, but Rick Perry had been the gold standard for the operation. So I went, I saw rickett and event and I said, Rick, I might tell everybody I'm gonna kick your butt. And so he says, oh, good, I act like I'm worried. And so we did press conferences together and all this stuff. And we just, you know, sort of trash talk to each other's state. And we will say, we added the private sector in my ears, it had 1.7 million jobs to earn over 200,000 jobs a year, became number one higher education by guess what? We had a plan. I said, you're not going to raise tuition, and I'm going to pay you based on whether kids get jobs and how much money they make. Yes. What did you think about school? One, I didn't enjoy going to school. I only went to school because they're going to pay me more money. Yes. Well, I mean, I grew up in Illinois, so I certainly didn't enjoy anything about my public school. But it was way too bloated. I was born there, but I left early. Yeah, you were smarter than I was for while I was there for about 18, 20 years. So you have this plan. That's actually the first pillar of your plan. Education, you say on your plans website rescue America dot com. Our kids will say the Pledge of Allegiance salute the flag, learn that America's a great country and choose the school that fits that best fits them. This is an 80 90% issue. Right. And it's pretty basic. So what could the potential pushback against that be? Well, first off, you know, the government wants to decide what school you go to, right? First off, you pay the taxes. It's your money as a parent. You give it to government and then government says, well, no, you have to go to this school and we're going to teach you that if you're one skin color, you're an oppressor and another skin color you're oppressed. And by the way, we're going to teach you that this is a racist country. That's not true. I mean, our founding fathers created the greatest greatest country we've had more success in this country than in places in the entire world. And so we ought to learn. This is the greatest country ever. Ever, there's nothing nobody close second. Number two, number two, say the pledge of legions. You know, I got married and really young. I got married in 19, so I already have grandkids. When my four year old grandson, we were in the end of it, and they said, oh, we'll give you sick if you say the Pledge of Allegiance. I didn't know he knew it. He did. So, I mean, I mean, think about how it makes you feel as a grandparent. That's when people are know they already know we're the best country. We believe in this country. We're going to make it better. And so, I mean, and you ought to choose as a parent. And so talk about Florida's education model. Because at one point at Florida's education was not the best. And now it's basically standard. Yeah, I agree. And I'm not a fan of Jeb Bush. I'll be very honest. But no, he deserves credit for it. I hear this all the time. It's the best thing the Bush family has done the last 20 years. Here's what he did right though. Okay, we would all disagree on exactly how you would do the measurement, but he created a measurement system. When did he like 2000, 2000? So he was in 12 years before me, all right? So that was 1998. Wow. Yeah. So he got, yeah, so he got elected in 8 because Chris got elected in 6000 again. Did you hear about the Republican, the Democrat and the independent that walked into the bar and it's one guy? He says, hi, Charlie. Exactly. Not this Charlie. Charlie Crist. But no, what he did was he created a measurement system, and then because parents then parents started looking at which school do I want to go to. So when I became governor, the best school district in the state was St. John's county. It had unbelievable growth of all these young families because they want their kids to go the best schools. So think about it. It forced our schools to get better. And so in the higher education, what I did is I paid for results and paid with 11 universities, 8 of them were getting no money. It was up to a $100 million a year and it was tied to do you get a job, how much money you make and what's it cost you get a degree. So we stopped the tuition increases and people said, we're going to focus on where the jobs were. Because when you go to school, that's what you expect. I mean, so it was a good job. It was great to be the governor. It was a good job. So you put education. You should run for governor. I should? Yeah. He would like it. And we got a whole slate in Arizona already running. That's quite a race. But you put education first. Tell me why. Is that? Is there a hierarchy to the order? Well, I look at my life and how did I get ahead? Wonderful mom lived in public housing. She said, you're going to get ahead because you're going to go get an education and you're going to go to work. And so I think the most important thing you can do for somebody is get them a job, but they got to get an education first. So if you want to build it, if you want to build a country, if you want to build anything, you got to give people great foundation. And it's education. Look gathering around the table. It's been a catalyst for change since the beginning of time. Meals matter. Let me say that again, meals matter and who you're eating with really matters and what you're eating also matters. Look, it starts with a table and time together, and good ranchers, a beautiful company, their mission is to bring people to the table. And we want people to know that. They want to make those moments around the table easy and accessible and delicious is what they do. It's what they deliver in every box. Good ranchers is giving you $30 off your order plus free shipping. Shipping is a huge cost that they are covering for every customer so that value can be emphasized with $30 off their order..

"They love to intimidate people Now Rick Scott should look at something else Rick Scott again pledges to be a conservative and a Republican I don't know what happened to Rick Scott He's probably too busy complaining about the success of Ron DeSantis's presidency Excuse me governorship Freddie had slipped there They don't like each other do you know that Maybe soon to be presidency who knows a friend of Santa's runs in the future They don't like each other Rick Scott's very jealous that desantis is a better governor than he was So he spends all his time fretting over that But it's really kind of bizarre how a lot of people went to bat for Rick Scott in the state and Rick Scott decides to attack a job creator in a state for committing to this crazy idea of free speech It doesn't seem to focus his ire on these lefty platforms Not that I'm recommending that I don't want anybody censored I think the Formula for combating speech you don't like is not less speech but more speech and I thought most Americans agreed with that Apparently not Rick Scott Folks this worries me going forward Because you're seeing more and more of this this quest by people in both parties to ban things and ideas they don't like to use their power I mean as Rick Scott read the First Amendment the Yale freedom of speech idea Rick's got understanding he's a U.S. senator on a verified account that literally the handle is at sen Rick Scott That tweeting from an official account is a government official trying to intimidate a private business into censoring content you don't like that that may be kind of an issue constitutionally If you thought about that you're a Republican right Listen I don't know the guy lived down here I've never met him But maybe he's a little out of touch you know I'm a capitalist in all these little rich maybe he's a little out of touch and port royal mansion hanging out there too much But don't think for a second you're going to get a free pass because you're slapping our in front of your name We're supposed to be the party that stands for free speech We're supposed to be the party That fights in the battlefield of ideas on the battlefield of censorship You didn't think leftists were going to screenshot your tweet within 5 seconds and start using it for calls to boycott conservatives who have accounts on rubble Were you not smart enough to figure that out You're a U.S. senator You're worth a lot of money Clearly you have an IQ to operate a successful business You didn't know that You don't understand that gaslighting people and lying to people one of the hallmarks of leftist ideology one of the requirements of it is to lie lie often lie confidently but the most important requirement is to isolate people from the truth and that's why the left love censorship so much So you're using your official account verified account to call for censorship on a free market platform and a free speech platform and you didn't see anything wrong with that Are you hanging out with Adam kinzinger Another clown show Republican from the other side the House of Representatives another uni party guy Adam kinzinger Adam kinzinger thought the ghost of the Kyiv story was real Adam kinzinger who this guy I mean you'd have a hard time finding a bigger chump or coward in Congress in kinzinger Adam kinzinger again at Adam kinzinger he's hashtag bye bye He thinks it's really funny that on She's a conservative TV network that has the right to speak apparently he got bumped off by Time Warner cable which you should probably call Time Warner and let him know you don't approve of that And Adam kinzinger thinks it's hilarious Hashtag bye bye and claims to be a Republican Can we used to be the party of ideas The party of free speech Free speech no matter what You don't violate the law you're not threatening someone's life I don't care how important your speech is I'll defend it I'll argue against it with my own speech but I'll defend your right to say it What happened to that What happened to that Why are we now parroting leftist narratives Sad folks I'm rarely I've been disappointed in politicians a lot I ran for office I met a lot of them 90% of them have been an abject disappointment I mean really you walk out of a room and you're like my gosh really I'm not kidding It happened to me more than once But I didn't know this guy and I thought he was doing a relatively decent job Rick Scott and then I walked out of the gym yesterday and saw that And you may say well Dan but you know fairly enough you have a personal interest in rubber That's fair enough The criticism I'm not going to run away Of course I do But I put my money where my mouth is ladies and gentlemen it's not because I talk about a parallel economy I want to do something about it And I'm really profoundly disappointed when people you would think would join us and link shields in that fight Start attacking and singling out us And then you may ask yourself well dad is you know allowing free speech on your platform even if it's things you don't like is that a hill you're willing to die on Oh yeah yeah that is Your darn right it is I would never get involved with a business that sells out as principles And when they do or if they do I'm out and I've done it before and you know what I'm talking about All right I got more on this coming up after

"Example that so I'm going to just go to number 9 senator and compliment you on this because in a weird world it takes courage to say this, men are men, women are women and unborn babies are babies we believe in science. I'm sure the backlash for this one has been bizarre and in some ways unexpected. Talk about why Republicans need to run on material reality. Yeah. I mean, I haven't been blessed. We have my wife and I have two daughters and we have 7 actually 7 grandkids. And you just love these little babies. And so, you know, and they're babies. I mean, so in unborn child is still a human being. And let's respect life. And it follows a science, it's a human being. And so let's follow science and let's make sure that we do everything we can to make sure these children come into this world. On top of that, you follow these swimmers that have the male swimmers have gotten in women's sports. You just kill in women's sports. That's not right. You don't have a, you know, you shouldn't allow men to play in women's sports. I mean, I mean, think about all the women have worked their butts off to try to make sure the women's sports were funded through our universities and things like that. And now if men decide, they want to play in women's sports, they can. That's wrong. We've got to not allow that to happen. So, but I think that, and I think the other thing that is so important to me is allow God to all aspects of our life. There should be no, the left wants to silence us. They don't want us to be able to talk about God anywhere. But why not? It's our God. I mean, we have the First Amendment. We ought to be able to talk about our religion. And anywhere. And not just in church, but in schools in businesses. And in politics, you're speaking my language senator, I hate to cut you off.

"Charlie. Senator, I want to ask you about number 7, fair, fraud, free elections. We'll protect the integrity of American democracy and stop left wing efforts to rig elections. I don't think this is that hard for you to talk about because Florida, despite its massive population, is actually able to get their votes in by ten 30 eastern on election night, meanwhile, George and Arizona, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, the run around like chicken with their heads cut off, talk about the success of Florida when we can learn about it, learn from it. Where there's two things you have to do, you have to have election laws that stop the fraud. So you have to have voter ID. I mean, Democrats want to get rid of voter ID for one reason because they want people that don't have a right to vote to vote. You can't let people register on election day. We don't in Florida. And we make it pretty easy to vote in Florida, but we try to stop all the fraud. So you can vote early in Florida. You can vote absentee, and you can vote on election day. But step one is you have to have an ID, step two is you can't register in the same day because no one can check to see if that person had a right to vote. Number three is you can not allow ballot harvesting. They had battled harvesting when I got elected in 2010 and we got rid of it because, you know, people can go in and, oh, you know, they can fill out somebody's ballot for them. And that's not right. Your melodies has to come in by you or us come in by the post office. And it's going to be in on time. I mean, you can't say, oh gosh, we lost by 10,000 votes. So let's hope hurry up and manufacture 11,000 votes. And so we win that way. So you have to do all those things. You're seeing trash to match if you do an absentee ballot, but then on top of that, we have to have good supervisor elections that will enforce the law and we have to hold them accountable. So in Florida, you were supposed to make sure that you can, you know, both sides can watch any opening of ballots. They're just make sure that happens. Because supervisor elections and we elect them as an example in Florida at the county level, we have got to go in there. We got to have our volunteers. We got to show up and make sure that they're doing the right thing. So it's one you've got to have the right laws and number two is you have to have the right supervisor elections. Number three is you've got to have trust but verify as Ronald Reagan would say. You got to have people show up. You have to have volunteers checking that. As you Charlie, I don't know if you remember, but in 2018, I won but I think 57,000 votes the night of election and they have illegally found a bunch of ballots afterwards and I went through two recounts. If we had not been ready with volunteers and lawyers, we wouldn't have won. So what we've got to do also is be ready. Make sure you have lawyers hired. Make sure you have volunteers trained to make sure that that one is done right on election day. But if you have a recount, you're ready for all the claims that the Democrats will have to try to change these elections. So that's what we have to do state by state. And it needs to be led and we need to run on it and we'll give our voters confidence that their vote matters. And that there's not going to be these late night ballot dumps. Florida is the best.

"It's ridiculous. Next is safety and crime. You say on your website rescue America dot com, the soft on crime days of coddling criminal behavior will end. We will refund and respect police because they, not the criminals are the good guys. We were enforced our laws, all of them and increased penalties for theft and violent crime. This one I would think is rather logical. I also think it's like a 90% issue. You know, in reality, ought to be a 100% issue. Who thinks that you should be able to go violate the law and nothing happened to you? Like, why don't we have the laws? And who's not taking care? It's not taking care of the people they can't afford all these, you know, the people that go afford all the guards around they have to worry about it. But think about it. You want to live in a safe neighborhood. So we would teach your kids if my mom taught me, she said, you've got to respect your law enforcement. And so law enforcement, they bust their butt trying to keep it safe. Am I Charlie my 8 years as governor? We lost 51 members of law enforcement in the line of duty. These men and women are defending our safety and they've never met us. They go to, they go into danger. When we run away from it, all right? That's what they do. So what we've got to do is say, we respect our police and the criminals, they're the bad guys. We're not going to go out there and oh, you know, yeah, you can steal from a hundred stores before you ever, you know, it's not your fault. I mean, that's how the left act. And these district attorneys and state attorneys that don't want to prosecute, you should be fired. I mean, they should absolutely be fired. So whatever our laws are, they're enforced against everybody. And you violate a criminal law, you suffer the consequences. You made that choice. It's a conscious decision. And next is immigration. I know that you made a visit to Yuma recently. I heard about that. I think we had both the same you would call it a tour guide or whatever, Yuma county supervisor, and you say we will secure our border, finish building the wall and name it after president Donald Trump, which the left totally lost their mind. I mean, you saw what's happening on the border. It is a human rights catastrophe. Talk to us about the need for Republicans to run on immigration. Charlie, you know, I always try to think, okay, so why is Biden doing what he's doing? Think about how it's impacting a family. So just first off, I think the easiest thing to think about a 100,000 people, 100,000 people, about one in every 3000 Americans, died of a drug overdose last year. Where did a lot of those drugs come from? Communist China, who delivered them the cartel. The Mexican cartel. So step one is, let's finish the wall. And the wall, everybody, it's just the wall. No, it's partially it's going to be a wall. Sometimes some places it's going to be cameras. Some places it's going to be, you have to have the lights to be able to see. Some is the road. It's sort of all of the above. But I go to the border, it's open. When I went to, you probably saw the same thing. When you went to Yuma. So what happens is you can find in Mexico City, you can come across our border because what you do, take a flight to Mexico City. I think the closest city that yumo is mexicali. You can apply to Mexico, take an Uber or a bus come across, and border patrol says, where do you want to go? I've talked about border patrol down there and they said, this is the first president that tried nothing. They said, look, I can disagree with what each president did a little bit. But this president does nothing to secure the border. Then he goes on his state of union address. He said, we're going to secure the border. No, you're not. That's a complete line. Maybe you went to like a picture of you saying something like that. But it's completely open. And by the way, we want legal immigration. I mean, I'm from an immigration state. I mean, our state is built on immigration. But legal immigration. And by the way, don't you shouldn't Biden and his menstruation care about these poor kids, they're being trafficked back and forth across the border so people can come across. I mean, wouldn't that discussed you if you saw that? Of course, no, Biden won't go there. But I think we ought to create an immigration system that we know who's coming into our country. That's number one. Number two is, let's have people come in that want to build artery. And with our constitution, believe it, believe it in our Bill of rights. That's what we ought to be doing. And they share western values, and they want to participate. Like you said, the Cubans in Miami are some of the great examples of that in America. I'm not going to skip over it. The growth in the economy is really important. You say, we'll grow America's economy in starved Washington's economy. I love it. But the one that I want to focus on, which I'm been trying to bang the drum on and people just forget about it is about the debt. This is generational theft what we are doing to our young people, thank you for mentioning this. $30 trillion a day. $30 trillion. We run deficits every year. Meaning, Charlie, you can't do that. All right. All right, families can't do that. States while states are not supposed to do it, they do do it. They just can't borrow money until they can't. But we've got to start living with it. It means, how fair is it? Charlie, how many people do you know that will say, I'm going to leave my debts for the next generation? They say, oh yeah, I'm going to run a whole bunch of dad. I like to take a couple of vacations to cancun and stuff like that. But and Sonny, I'm going to have you pay for it. No. That's exactly what exactly what they're doing up here. And they don't believe there's any accountability. They just keep borrowing bar and bar in mind. $33. Guess what happens when interest rates go up? They inevitably go up. How are we ever going to pay the interest expense on our federal debt? I mean, so then what are they going to cut? They're going to have to raise taxes, Mayo cause more inflation. I mean, this is just a death spiral. We don't get control of this. It is. And so there's only a couple options available. And unfortunately, the regime wants to inflate our way out of it. Instead of trying to cut spending, I'm not a fan of raising taxes, but just trying to debase the currency to make it completely irrelevant for some preexisting obligation that we have. And I'm glad that you frame it in moral terms because that's what it is. It is a moral crisis. And there's a great, I mean, Florida is the most free state in the country largely thanks to your leadership and then of course then governor desantis two phenomenal governors one after the other. But in Florida, not locking down is the same sort of belief to balance the budget, meaning that we're not going to shut down schools just to try to make ourselves feel better. It's the same sort of moral problem that we see. Republicans need to be clear about what we're running on, not just against. The three week.

"I was so moved by this document that was composed by senator Rick Scott from Florida. I asked our team, I said, do whatever you possibly can to get him on the show. And it's really good. We went through it previously. It's an 11 step plan to rescue America. And some of it is stuff that you would expect out of kind of a Republican plan. But there's some really creative and good ideas and some strong philosophical basis for a lot of it. And the architect of that and the man that wants to get the Senate majority back is senator Rick Scott from Florida senator. Welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie, it's great. It's great to be with you. I'm really worried for a country that woke up to just, I mean, they've taken over this whole country. I mean, they control the media, they control their culture, they control our government, the Democrat party, the entire federal apparatus. So we've got to, you know, you do it every day, but we got to fight back. And I think to do it, you got to have a plan. You got to say, hey, what am I going to do? What are my marching orders? How do I get there? What's going to change this country? And so that's why I put out a plan. There will be things people agree with, some ideas that they might have better, but I'm going to bust my butt to make sure we do something to turn this country around. Well, I love it. So let's go through it. Piece by piece. We can lead whichever one you want. But the one that really struck me is the emphasis on education on how you want to empower parents and really kind of build this parents party. Please, let's go from there. So let's start with what. So I grew up I grew up I was born to a single mom. We lived in public housing, but here's what she told me. She called me Ricky, which I didn't really like that much, but she said, she said, Ricky, you can be anything because you grew up in this country. Now, the country I grew up in, when we went to school, when school started, we said the Pledge of Allegiance. We saluted the flag, all right? We were taught that this was the greatest country ever created. I think we got to get back to that. And then we got to get back to our education system and education system that, you know, we're taught about reading and writing and arithmetic. That's what I learned. And the way to make sure that we have the right schools is for the parents to have the right to choose the school, not government, not some woke government run school. So I think it ought to be done at the state level. It shouldn't be a federal education program. I think we have to shut down the federal Department of Education. If we're going to send money, let's send money directly to the parents to spend money on where they want to sit in their kids to school, but there's not we got free money up here. And this is money that somebody's taxed. So I think in the biggest thing is, let's give back to parents, parents get to choose where their kids go to school, and then let's make sure our schools are focused on how do we explain to people that. I mean, there's nothing like the America. I mean, the easiest thing is to move, right? These things to move something. There's no country to go to. So if we don't fight for this country, where's it going? And it starts with our kids. Charlie, when I was governor, I always thought three things you have to do well. Make sure people have a great opportunity to survive on their own. That's what people want to do. Number two, make sure the education is really good. And the way to make sure that is parents choose and number three, make sure you keep people safe. So, but education, I mean, that's the future of our kids and our grandkids. That's exactly right. And you say here that our kids will say the Pledge of Allegiance salute the flag, learn that America's array country and choose the school that fits best for them. You wouldn't think that would be something you would run for office on, right? It used to just kind of you'd say that, you know, some light is good and oxygen is needed, but now this is somehow controversial. The second piece that really struck me is that government. It's colorblind equality, which I'm a big fan of. Government will never again ask American citizens to disclose their race, ethnicity or skin color on any government form. Now, hilariously, they'll try to call you a racist for this senator, but walk us through this. Well, first off, the other to the left is going to call you racist every day. That's what they do for a living. Whatever you propose, it has to be racist. If they disagree with you. Let's talk about the thing about it. When I was growing up, my mom taught me is that you should be colorblind. You should judge people by what they do, how they act, what they say, not about the color of their skin. So government is trying to divide us. The woke left is trying to devise. They're saying, oh, if you have this skin color you're gonna press your. If you have this gun, skin color you're oppressed. So I don't believe government. Government should never ask you. On any government form, you know, what your race is, the color of your skin, your ethnicity, none of that. We're all in the maid and the image of God, and we all be judged by who what we do. And our character, not about the skin or it doesn't make who wants to divide people by the race. Like I've never met a parent, say, oh, Johnny, I'm sorry. You don't have the same opportunity as everybody else. No, parents bring their kids up and say, last year, but you got every chance, you know, do what it's like my mom says, Ricky, you got every chance, it is up to you. Get your get your button gear. Doesn't matter that where you start in life, you can do anything you want to only because you live in the United States of America. That's exactly right. And what I love about this is it's not just the statement of fact here. You're saying that you're not going to ask for it on government forms. You're going to try to end this kind of woke CRT nonsense in a policy perspective, especially it's getting into our military and as we look at the threats happening right now, potential nuclear conflict are militaries too busy teaching this woke garbage to our armed service members. It's.

Joe Biden says that he is expanding the petroleum reserve to try and hedge against the increased price of oil. What's oil at today? Let's see. Price of oil, oil price dot com. It's a great time to be in the oil business, I suppose. Wow, $111 a barrel. You've got to be kidding me. I think I told everybody my story of my triple leveraged oil ETF that folded because not enough people believed in the future of oil during COVID. I bought a bunch of it and it went under. Good lesson when you buy triple leverage ETFs that they can go under. But boy, would I be cooking with gas with that right now? Nope. Punnett intended, I should say. Wall Street Journal writes here on the front page. Instead of the union Biden says Putin miscalculated. So this really is kind of the open question. Is Putin a pathological maniac, or it is Putin have some sort of game here, is Putin's surprised that the entire west is consolidating around the idea of restricting Russia. Remains to be seen precisely what the what the point is there or remains to be seen exactly what the truth is there. I should say. Pete boot edge edge, who is never one who's to be shy of cameras who I think was developed in a laboratory just for the sake of trying to be a perfect robot of the technological left, says, look, here's the thing. I run the transportation apartment. I know a lot about transportation. I drove over a lot of potholes when I was mayor, and I did nothing to fix them. We're under an energy transformation. And guess what? He's actually telling the truth. They believe they are so confident in themselves. They are so full of pride that they believe geopolitics aside, the ability that energize your society, that they are so important that they can transform the entire economy of the wealthiest nation ever to exist in the history of the world, they can execute a metamorphosis..

"China taking Taiwan. President Trump agrees with that play cut 68. I'm the one that got all of that. Yeah, I see it happening in Ukraine rather rather soon because president Xi happens to be a man with high intelligence level and he looks at what happened in Afghanistan the way we pulled out. Not that we were pulling out because I was the one that got it down to 2000 soldiers. And he sees that and this is his opportunity to do what he wants to do, which is and he's wanted to do that in China's wanted to do that for decades. Joe Biden continued by saying that he created lots of jobs. I want to really get in on this job creation nonsense. So you lock down the economy and then you mildly reopen the economy and you count that as new job growth. No, that's job refilling. It's not new job growth. Especially in the hospitality sector, especially in the travel area, Joe Biden says he created lots of jobs. He also said the solution to inflation is to lower your costs, while also we're going to try to spend another $6 trillion on complete and total nonsense. He said that he did a very interesting pivot here. He realizes how unpopular the Democrat crime agenda is. And he said, funding for police is a big priority for his administration. But he also back in 2020 said police were racist. And that they need to lose their funding. So if I were to kind of give my big takeaway from all this of the State of the Union address, first of all, and I don't say this lightly, the Biden cartel that is running The White House. It's not just that they're radical. It's not just that they want a transformation of western society. It's also that they're not very good at it. They're not even good at communicating the unraveling of America. They're not even good at trying to spin what is happening. I mean, if Connor and I and Andrew and I were put into a video game and or put into some sort of position where we had to put we would do a better job than what Joe Biden did yesterday. Was also very interesting. Is Joe Biden didn't mention January 6th at all. Dimension it. Meanwhile, CNN says that American jobs will not return to pre-pandemic levels until 2024. The number of employed Americans won't return to its pre-pandemic levels until 2024, but the broad economy is expected to fully recover by the middle of this year, according to a congressional budget office report issued on Monday. Reuters a pre-pandemic U.S. job report is a long way off the U.S. job market is still nursing itself back to health is what Reuters says. Joe Biden continued by saying, I'm like, let me play this whole job creation thing for you. Play cut 66. It worked. You created job, lots of jobs. In fact, our economy created over 6.5 million new jobs just last year. More jobs in one year than ever before in the history of the United States of America. The economy grew at a rate of 5.7 last year, the strongest growth rate in 40 years. It's so dishonest and he knows it. It's called pent up demand, the economy started to reopen for obvious reasons as COVID started the subside and omicron took center stage. And he's trying to take credit for an economic win. But the people aren't buying it. The American people are like, yeah, okay, you're totally lying about it. And then Joe Biden has the spine and the I mean, I keep saying audacity, there's other words for it. Let's say the gumption to then say we need a secure border and fix the immigration system. Joe Biden, I went to Yuma at the Yuma sector in Arizona. I saw for myself, people crossing the border with the help and the assistance of the cartel. And I saw with my own eyes board a patrol that basically had to shrug their shoulders and say, we're not able to do our job because of orders from the very top. Play.
