An Incentive to Support Our Prison Fellowship Angel Tree Campaign

"Got the biggest smile on my face today. I got an email from illyana in west ligo Texas. She said it's become a family tradition of ours to watch the thermometer on your prison fellowship, angel tree campaign go up, up, up, we love listening to how you worry about hitting your big goal, you always hit the goal with the love and support of your listeners. You know we've got now 2037 kids sponsored to send Christmas presents and bibles and messages from their incarcerated parents. In just a few days, we've raised over $50,000. It's so fun to watch this and to hear from illyana and the Rio Grande valley like that. Say that it's become a Christmas tradition because you can see the progress when you go to the site. When you go to Mike online dot com and click on that angel tree banner at the top of the page. Again, the ask is simple. $50 will bless two children. You'll be able to send a Christmas gift that the child believes is coming from their parent who is in prison. They'll also get a Bible and a personalized message from their dad or their mom to these children on Christmas. $25 a child, I had a number of people donated a thousand this week. We're going to call them to thank them personally for their donation. Whatever you can afford, and I got a trip that I might be putting together to see a Broadway hit, great seats for a show that you can't get tickets for. I mean, 'cause the star of this particular show, I'm not even supposed to say what it is yet, because we haven't finalized the details. It's going to come together quickly if we do it. Because I got the tickets. Tickets are for next Wednesday night.

One Bright Light in This Midterm Landscape

"There are not a lot of bright lights and this midterm landscape. But one of them, surely, is the steady movement of Latinos toward the GOP. Now, this is not a movement that has been completed. It is a movement that is underway. If you look, for example, at Florida, heavy Latino vote for desantis and interestingly, he seems to have won Latinos kind of across the board. With Greg Abbott in Texas, the results a little bit more mixed, but Abbott got a decent share of the Latino vote. If you look at the Rio Grande valley a special interest of W's and mine because Debbie grew up there, we had three Latina Republicans running Cassie Garcia and Myra Flores, who was in Debbie's own district where her mom lives. And then Monica de la Cruz. So normally one of them, Monica, dela Cruz won. But the other two actually came really close. Cassie Garcia was edged out by the way by a fairly conservative Democrat cuellar. Is that the guy's name Henry, Henry cuellar, and Myra Flores, I mean, this is a district that used to go easily 60 40, 20 point difference or more. Even more. And Myra got what, 43 or 44. And so the other guy, so does that still a ten point gap, but the point is the gap is narrowing.

So tell us about your opponent and the story that he's accepting cartel money yeah, so, you know, Henry cuellar, as everyone knows, is a beloved Democrat love by Republicans, but then today he's a Democrat. He's been in office for 18 years, but he's been serving in public services 19 87. Since I've been in kindergarten and now he has accepted he accepted years ago bribes money from a wife of a cartel member. And people should find his I'm deeply disturbed by this. And I think the people of district 28 should be disturbed by this report. And first of all, a congressman should never accept campaign contributions from many from, especially from Rosetta, it's one of the worst deadliest drug cartels on our southwest border. And you know what? It's also shelving powder because right now he's under a criminal investigation for corruption as well.

"Debbie and I were on the road, we went together to Michigan for an event, a right to life event, very successful, and then we were home for a day and then off to the Rio Grande valley to visit Debbie's mom. And that was great. Now, while we were gone, a video surfaced, it was played on CNN of Nancy Pelosi, saying the following. This was actually recorded on January 6th. I hope he comes. She's talking about Trump. I want to punch him out. I've been waiting for this. I'm going to punch him out. I'm going to go to jail. I'm going to be happy. Now, this is remarkable for the simple fact that here you have the Speaker of the House talking about. And with evidence sincerity, if she doesn't seem to be kidding, she has no kind of humorous laughter afterward. I'm just obviously just saying, no, she wants Trump to come so she can punch him in the face. Punch the president of the United States in the face. Now, interestingly, the left's reaction to all this, in fact, I saw one guy on TV and he was like, Nancy Pelosi was extremely restrained. I'm thinking restrained. Well, what would an unrestrained Nancy Pelosi be like? I want to do what? Do more? Do what? So this was not restrained. This is actually conduct very unbecoming, and yet here is a Vanity Fair. Nancy Pelosi like millions of Americans wanted to punch Trump in the face. So this is a little way in which you see our rhetoric in this country escalating.

LULAC Decries Gov. Greg Abbott's 'Political Stunts'

"Back to lulac. So they are actually suing Abbott because they think that Abbott's tactic of sending the bus loads to D.C. and where else did he send him, not Martha's Vineyard. That was D.C. in New York. Do you see a New York? So he thought, oh, you are just dehumanizing these people. These Latinos, from Central and South America, they deserve human rights. They deserve to have rights. Well, you know, here's the thing. They are breaking the law, right? So really by that logic, that means that if somebody breaks into our House, what we have to feed them, we have to treat them with respect because they broke into our House. Hello? Well, the situation here though is complicated, I think, because even though you're right, that these are people who are not lawfully in the country, in a way they're not like people who broke into your house because you never collaborated with them to get in the house. Think about it. The Biden administration. Yes, but that would be like, say, our community, HOA, collaborating with them without our consent. Without August. Because that's what's happening. Is that the Biden administration is not asking the folks in the Rio Grande. If it's okay for these people to come over or anybody else. Not to mention the Texas as a state doesn't want them. And so governor Abbott in his sense of saying, listen, you guys claim to be sanctuary cities. Yes. You are pushing for. You know, and the brilliant thing about this is that nobody and I mean nobody is down there at the border, filming these people coming in. So what Abbott did, what desantis did is he's making it an issue. He wants the reporters to report about illegals because otherwise nobody else is reporting about a year. No one knows there's illegals in this country,

"Ted Cruz says this should not be the end of all of this. He says that every day, every day we need to be sending more and more illegals to Martha's Vineyard, cut 11. To put in perspective, Martha's Vineyard is a town, its population is about 17,000. The median home price is over a $1 million. Let's compare it to Del Rio Del Rio is a wonderful town in Texas. It's down on the Rio Grande valley. It has a population of between 30 and 35,000. In one single day at Del Rio, there were 15,000 illegal immigrants, mostly Haitians, crossing illegally in one day, as you know, I went down to the bridge and I videoed over 10,000 illegal immigrants under that bridge, Martha's Vineyard lost their mind with 50 and the little town of Del Rio and towns all up and down the Rio Grande valley are dealing with hundreds or dealing with thousands. Let me say Sean, I commend Greg Abbott for sending the immigrants to these blue cities. I commend Ron DeSantis for doing so, and they need to do more tomorrow. Martha's Vineyard needs a hundred. The next day they need 200. The next day they need a thousand D.C. says it's a crisis to get 6000. They need 10,000 they need a 100,000. They need 500,000 because Joe Biden has allowed 4.2 million people to come in illegally. And I know these rich billionaires say, well gosh, you people just let them eat cake. Well, how about having the obamas host these 50 people in their $12 million compound? Wait a minute. No, no, no. None of them.

"Honored person of color in Emmy history by winning his 12th award. I'm Scott Carr. Many living in New York City are furious after arsenic was found in their drinking water. The discovery was made in Manhattan two weeks ago, though officials with the city's housing authority failed to take any action until this past Friday, residents lined up yesterday for city supplied bottled water, though some say it's not enough. Officials with the department of environmental protection say they still don't know how traces of arsenic ended up in the city's drinking water, but they're looking into it. The number of migrants who drowned in the Rio Grande river Thursday is now up to 9 Jim Forbes has an update. U.S. customs and border protection officials say the drownings happen Thursday morning when a large group attempted to cross the river, which was running with strong currents after multiple days of rain, officials rescued 37 people from the river, part of a larger group of over 50 that was taken into U.S. custody. Initially, it was believed 8 people had died, but officials now say they found another body and one is one of the deadliest border patrol drownings in recent history. I'm Jim Forbes, the IRS has admitted to accidentally publishing private taxpayer information that agency officials say affected about a 120,000 people names and income from certain investments had been available on its website for about a year they say, despite that lawmakers were told no social security numbers or individual income information wasn't included in the information that was exposed. Tennis champ Serena Williams is now the most tweeted about female athlete ever, according to Twitter, the social media giant says from August through this past Friday, about 75% of those who tweeted about Williams had not done so at all this year, Williams announced her retirement from tennis before going on to compete in the U.S. open. She lost Friday night to Isla tomjanovich in three sets.

Energy rationing in Europe, this winter is starting to look all, but inevitable. German officials yesterday insisted that security of supply was guaranteed at least for now. This is after Russia's Gazprom made a last minute decision not to turn the crucial Nord stream pipeline back on after maintenance, but Klaus Muller, president of the federal network agency energy regulator warned last month that even with gas storage 95% full, there would be only enough for about two and a half months worth of demand if Russia switched off flows which it has now done. Europe's politicians have been bracing for the prospect of supply cuts for weeks and scrambling to find ways to cut demand.

Debbie and Dinesh Discuss Who Is to Blame for the Border Crisis

"We want to talk in this segment about the border and it seems like what's happening is that the people who are in charge of policy at the border, notably law enforcement authorities, and only beginning to not only recognize what's going on. They know they're there. They see it, but they're beginning to speak out about it. Absolutely. I mean, as you know, I was brought up on the Rio Grande border, grew up there, and coming used to tell me that in the holidays you would just cruise over to. Oh yeah, we'd go to Mexico. We'd walk over to Mexico, have lunch, walk back, you can no longer do that. You just can't. It's too dangerous. In fact, the valley was a very safe place, at least I thought it was when I was a kid in the high school. Wouldn't you go like rolling skating? It was just great, you know? And you can no longer do that anymore. So the interesting thing, though, is border patrol typically does not get involved with the administration. They don't talk. They don't talk about this administration or that administration. But very interestingly, border patrol chief raul Ortiz was under oath and he basically said that the Biden administration's border policies of no consequences are causing chaos at the border. And there was a video going around of this basically he was a cartel member. And he was he was being chased by two border patrols, and he was actually fighting back. He had no fear of these border patrol agents. And it just like gets me that these poor men, of course, they sign up to do this to protect our borders. But we shouldn't have to do that. I mean, they sign up under the expectation that there will be an administration in Washington that is committed to enforcing the law and supporting them in doing their jobs.

"And the New York Post editorial board says that this week's tragic deaths of two migrant children again expose the danger and callousness of Biden's open border policy. The kids drowned in the Rio Grande trying to cross the river with groups of illegals enticed here by Biden's implicit promise of permanent U.S. residents once they're over the border. That promise underlies every Biden policy on immigration and it has now engendered a full blown humanitarian crisis. The steadily climbing number of migrant deaths at the southern border proves that starkly. Biden and Democrats paint their let them in approach as a humanitarian response to those in desperate need. The hideous deaths of these two beautiful little children this week in the Rio Grande. Show that it's really just the opposite.

We must acknowledge we're going to be outspent and we have to get to work because this right here, this midterm election can be one of the most consequential not just for the country.

First of all, you said, you don't want to miss Marjorie Taylor Greene's session. It's called I'll take my committee back, please. And then you said that there's a, I guess, a session called the invasion with both Myra Flores and Carrie Lake. Is that true? That's right. Yep, Carrie Lake is flying in right after her victory in Arizona yesterday. In the GOP primary and she and Myra Flores who you've had on the show before Mike and you know very well from the Rio Grande valley, they are going to have this place exploding today. But it doesn't take much. I mean, Mike lindell is making a speech, Rick Scott, the U.S. senator from Florida has got a plan to rescue America. He's going to reveal JD Vance is here from Ohio that he's going to be talking about the rise of the hillbilly, which would be him. And then tonight, our mutual friend Larry O'Connor is hosting the annual cattlemen's ball here in Dallas at cpac and the guest speaker is Steve Bannon.

"And pro choice. As president of Catholics for choice, I represent the 68% of Catholics who do not want to see ro overturn. And something that they say that's really interesting is they say that reproductive justice is actually a Catholic value. I support abortion access because of my faith. Not in spite of it. One of the questions that we really thought about once we were filming and then once we were done with filming was what is choice mean when you don't have many options and for ray and Mercedes and Denise and many people in the Rio Grande valley, that's the reality. There aren't many options around getting access to reproductive healthcare or getting access to seeing a doctor in general. These anti choice laws directly impact poor communities of color the most. And I believe that these laws are rooted in racism and sexism and homophobia. And they are not rooted in protecting life. Seeing how clear these laws connected to white supremacy really at the end of the day is what I think was the most illuminating for me. I think right now it's just so important to support these organizers that have been on the ground that have been doing this really important work that people often overlook because unfortunately what we're seeing now is that the courts will not protect us. So it's really up to community building and community organizing to get the proper access to.

"Issue by sharing the perspectives of the three people that we chose, we knew that we could open up the conversation and expand where people think when they think about who has a stake in reproductive justice. We really wanted to share stories of everyday people every day, Latina Latinos, LatinX, to have to deal with restricted access in their everyday lives. And also show how religion is a part of this as well. You're in the other way, but nothing enters. You can block the alleyway somewhere else. One of those people was ray, who is a security guard at the clinic. What I see here, sometimes they cross the line. I see it every day. People come here to in southeast girls and make it worse. He was religious his whole life until he started working at the clinic and really started to feel that it was his duty to protect the patients that were coming in. Since I was 7 or 8 years old, I've been going to the church. Now I can't go there. There is a scene in the film where we actually go and film with him outside at a shrine. He has to go to because he's no longer allowed inside of the church in his community. When you come here, at least 5 or ten minutes. You will feel better. And you see him praying for the clinic escorts who he works alongside. Protect my girls. Ask words and patients that go to the clinic, please for me. And my family..

"Wasn't over. What started as a school project turned into something more. We really wanted to create a film that focused on this community that only had one clinic in McAllen, Texas. We really felt that the stories on the border were not being shared. And the stakes were high. If this clinic permanently shut down, people seeking an abortion would need to travel to San Antonio, more than 200 miles away. If anyone's driven from San Antonio to McAllen or the Rio Grande valley, you know that there's a really long stretch of road that's quite gorgeous, but there's a lot of border checkpoints. So the undocumented population living in the Rio Grande valley is not going to want to risk deportation to go to that nearest clinic. They set out to follow people's lives in McAllen. Over the course of several years, as outsiders, they knew that they first needed to build trust and a relationship with the community, here's Maya again. This film took 7 years to make. It was many different films at one point, but really what drove us to finish the film and to make the film is because of the people that we met along the way on the divide premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in September of 2021. And it's only become more relevant as they've started showing the film across the country. I think that McGowan can really represent the United States in a lot of ways and how people have to contend with restricted access. This episode Leah and Maya talk about the long journey to capturing a community story. And also how making this film changed their lives. Here are filmmakers Leo Glen, and my in their own words. Hi, I'm Leah gallant and I'm one of the co directors of on the divide and I'm a filmmaker right now I'm living in Berlin. My name is Maya quavo. I'm the co director of on the divide. I'm from Berkeley, California, and I'm currently based here. As a Latina filmmaker, I felt really compelled to tell the story of reproductive healthcare and how that intersects with latinidad. I feel that there's a lot of stories about abortion that don't always often center, black or brown voices, and it was really important for me to share the stories of people who, you know, you don't often hear from who are really on the front lines of this movement. We thought, especially on this very divisive issue by sharing the perspectives of the three people that we chose, we knew that we could open up the conversation and expand where people think when they think about who.

"Let me talk a little bit about, well, piracy. By piracy, we mean this. And by the way, we're not raising this topic indignation. But what's happened is whenever you put a movie and this was through number 80,000 people saw it and the virtual premiere, what happens is people turn on their phones or they what they do is they create a download. And then they just put it online and so the movie has been pirated. By the way, this is common with movies. Movies get pirated and typically movie companies have to hire these anti piracy firms to take those pirated sites down. But let's talk about look, if some guy doesn't have any money and he's like, I can't afford to pay for the movie. And he finds it free. I'm not begrudging that guy. I'm not upset about it. But what I do want to say is that by and large, we don't like it. And we'll tell you really why. It has to do more with our business model. Right, our business plan. And this also, you know, I'm getting a lot of emails about people wanting to do screenings for large people and for large groups of people. And so that too is a problem. Why? Because you buy a DVD for 29 bucks or however much it is. And then you have a thousand people go in there and watch it. So the problem is that if this goes on and on and on, we do not make our money back. We can make movies. We can't make movies, which we continue to do. So these movies are very see a lot of documentaries are not that much to make, but ours are unique. Well, we spend money on them because we make them theatrical. We make them so that it's a real movie. This is not a case where we interview four people and that's the movie. Right. So I think what Debbie's getting out is this, look, we have no objection to people with their family or calling some friends do beat by all means. We're not talking about that. We're talking about things like, well, this is some of your friends in the Rio Grande valley when they learned about the virtual premiere, they literally set up a convention center where a thousand people were going to come in basically it went to buy one ticket and a thousand people watching the movie for

"When we contemplate Biden stayed at the union and W and I have been talking in the last couple of segments about the border. On the border is an issue that people can see, you know, you see it on social media. You see what's going on and sometimes in the news. But it doesn't affect everybody directly because most of the country is not on the border. So unless you live in a border town in the Rio Grande valley or in the south of Florida or in California, sometimes that issue is less visible to you. But one issue that is very visible or at least experienced directly is shortages. And inflation. And wow, honey, look at this, this is the latest inflation by which, by the way, was 1.6% when Trump left office is now at 8.5% 14 months later. Yeah, well, I mean, it's the result of giving money away to people. I mean, you know, but all the money exactly, printing money that we don't have. So anyway, I kind of dread doing something right after the podcast and that is filling up the car because it's on empty. I'm now letting it run all the way down and it's like, ah, because what used to cost 40 bucks is now 90 to a $100. And it's really, you know, and we're blessed and we can afford it, but I can not imagine what it's like for somebody that makes a $100 a day to have to fill up their car for that amount. Yeah, if you make $15 an hour, you basically making, well, about a 105 a day, but that's gross. That's not even your net income. That's right. So when you saw a whole tank of gas is your whole day's work. Just incredible. Yeah, yeah. And the guy on the high prices aren't in one sector. Now, the gas prices affect so many other things, right? Because food has to be transported and merchandise is transported. So when you have high energy prices, they tend to spread out into higher costs. But we're seeing dramatic increases in car prices and rental prices pretty much across the country. Extremely expensive milk, bread, all of the basics are just really, really expensive. And you know, people that are on a very limited budget, it's heartbreaking, really. I mean, the other thing is, even if you're willing to pay, there's a bunch of stuff you can't buy. So not only are prices going up, but things are unavailable. I've ordered all kinds of gadgets, you know, me and gadgets. I love gadgets. But what's that thing you order? No, I can't. I will not. What is it? But you ordered it months ago. I ordered something 6 months ago, and they don't have the parts for it. And so, and then remember, we had our media room redone, because we do screenings in our media room. So it needs to look nice. People don't need to get stuck in the chair.

She came legally to the United States at the age of 6. She became a naturalized U.S. citizen. She's a respiratory care practitioner who works caring for the elderly and the disabled and has been on the front lines helping people to fight against COVID. She's lived in the Rio Grande valley. This is the south part of Texas right near the border since 2004. She's now running for Congress in South Texas district 34. And Myra welcome to the podcast, really looking forward to this, you're in a district that's of a lot of interest to Debbie and me, W in fact grew up in the Rio Grande valley in harland and Texas. And I'm gonna sort of deploy her in the second segment to talk to you a little bit about things you might have in common and about your story. So I want to focus in on a few kind of key issues that you're running on and I maybe I can begin by asking you about this kind of sea change that seems to be underway in which Hispanics, Latinos, latinas are realizing that they're kind of traditional allegiance to the Democratic Party is now kind of out of sync. The Democratic Party today doesn't stand for what you can maybe call Hispanic values. So can you begin by saying a word about that? Absolutely. Well, I wanted to start by saying I grew up here in South Texas. I actually graduated from high school in 2004 in San Bernardo. But I've grew up here in this area and I've always said the Hispanic community is very conservative. Our values are pro God, pro life, pro family, all about hard work. Our values align with the Republican Party, but we have been lied to. We have been told that the Republican Party is the party of the rich, that it's the party that only white people support. And that's the idea I grew up thinking. And I still remember asking my father, who should I vote for and he told me Barack Obama. He said you should vote for him and I did not question him why I should vote or not vote for him. I voted for him because that's what I was told to do so. But a family member of mine came up to me and said, Maya, do you know exactly what you're voting for? And I said, to be honest with you, I don't. So when she explained to me the platforms, I told her, I'm a Republican. And you know, that's when I realized the lack of information. So I actually started educating my family. I started telling them what the platforms were. By the way, my dad hated it. 'cause I was able to convince most of my family, you know, to vote Republican and it's something that I was very proud of. So I actually decided to get involved at the local level because I realized that if I was able to convince my family, what if I'm able to convince my community? What if I start knocking doors, making phone calls, making events. So I'd reached out to the local GOP in the algo and I became the Hispanic outreach chair for four or 5 years and dedicated myself to the community and making sure that they knew exactly what they were voting for. That was for me, the priority I wanted them to know exactly what they were voting for. And when I would give them the information, they would realize that they did not support the Democratic Party's platform. Myra, normally, the Democrats, you know, they appeal to minorities, loosely speaking on two bases. One is we have all kinds of benefits that we're gonna give you if you vote for us. So this is a kind of broadly speaking of vote buying scheme, but it's we offer you these entitlements and you can count on them and we are the people to deliver them. And the second one is the race card. And as you mentioned, the notion of only white people are Republicans, but the idea is that versions of color, like you or even like me, were victims in this society, we should develop a victim mentality. We should see white supremacy as the problem. It seems like you have sort of been liberated from all this nonsense, but talk a little bit about how, because it's obviously tempting enough that other people are suckered into it. How is it that you're able to sort of see through the fog and realize these people are selling us some. False snake oil here that we need to be able to see through? Right. Well, for me, my values are very important. And I've always believed that, you know, no political parties worth us putting our value society. So I can only speak for myself. When I saw that my values align with the Republican Party, I, it was no question for me. Oh, I'm going to vote this way because these are my values. Now, this area, this community, yeah, you're right. The Democrats have always made those type of promises. But I believe that they want to keep us poor. They want to keep us poor and educated so they can continue controlling our vote. They always make the same promises about immigration. They use that issue because they understand that it's important to us. So they're always using the immigration issue, but yet they're not solving the solution and they're never going to solve the solution because there will have nothing else to use to obtain our vote. So they're never going to solve this issue with the immigration problems that we currently have in the United States. Is just, I don't know, everything I see on the Democrat party is just standing against everything we stand for in South Texas and people tell me, how can you vote Republican if you're from Mexico? Well, it's obvious that they do not understand our culture, but our culture, again, is very conservative. Very conservative and the.

Alright, so Fox News apparently put a drone up in the air so we could see all these folks and now the F A. A no doubt as a result of the Biden administration has now put a restriction.

And by the way, the FAA did put that restriction in place because the Biden administration asked them to second thing you need it. Before tomorrow, California has been slow to distribute federal funds meant to help printers that may miss out and so much so that they may miss out on the next round of federal assistance. That's the finding of an audit of the Department of Housing and Community Development. California was given 1.8 billion to help out renters who are struggling to pay rent because of covid lockdowns in their state. But if California doesn't identify individuals who will get the remaining money in that fund by September, 30th, the state will lose out on an additional 337 million in federal funds. Well, it's not just California, South Carolina is another example. Where They basically are just now distributing this federal aid, and they basically are also saying that The red tape and what I read. The red tape is what's basically slowing this entire process, But they've got to make sure that they're not just handing this money out to folks who don't qualify, right.

Eventually, the man tried to ask her why she didn't order an evacuation of the city for Hurricane Ida, But it took them several attempts to get the question out because she kept interrupting him repeating say what you got to say. When asked later at a press conference about her uncivil behavior in the bar, the mayor said, quote it was a man who disrespected me and I spoke up for myself as I was raised to do. There was nothing in this video. That was disrespectful to the mayor. Other than the fact he asked the question. The only thing is disrespectful was the mayor itself.
