Hunter Biden Reportedly Earned $11M From Foreign Business Deals

"NBC. Analysis of Hunter Biden's hard drive proves $11 million in payments from China. And what are those two stories have to do with one another? You're trying to tell me that NBC would send a bunch of reporters to look through Hunter Biden's laptop to create a negative headline. If Democrats were doing super well right now, remember the entire probe criminally into Hunter Biden is nakedly political for the sole and intended purpose and fact to try to make Joe Biden removable. Now Joe Biden does have an insurance policy. Joe Biden's handlers were very smart in one way. You might say Charlie, what is that insurance policy? The insurance policy is not like the Peter struck stroke smirk or the Lisa page lover from the FBI. None of the insurance policy is that they decided to pick an even more unpopular person to become vice president. Which is if the regime wants to remove Joe Biden assail boy, we got to deal with the that's not good. The Biden team realized that the only thing less popular than Joe Biden. So they got a decision to make, they say, well, at least we can control Biden because hunter did crimes all across the world. NBC News, Hunter Biden's hard drive shows he his firm earned $11 million from 2013 to 2018. This is a common technique that is executed by deep state Democrats against politicians they don't like. Andrew Cuomo fell victim to this, Jesse Jackson junior fell coma to this. Fell victim to this. Rod Blagojevich fell victim to this. It is a common technique, which is to use all of the previously rumored criminal activity of a Democrat, bring it to the surface to try to get that Democrat to heal or to foose. Dog term I used yesterday to obey, and if they become politically un useful, which we just are showing their Joe Biden is so unpopular, you have a means of removing him or a means of making sure that he does not run for office.

"No lightning in a guest Dycom Lightning ride with Rod Blagojevich from a 90. W hell s This is a re occurring subject on the John Howell Gap fast. I'm not sure I care to see any more presidential debates because they're just basically sound and fury, signifying nothing. Both Canada gets both candidates get about half of the room they bring in their very partisan followers who act like hyenas at the slightest provocation. The questions are generally dopey, especially when they come from the audience or online. And it's much ado about nothing. It doesn't advance the story for either candidate. I'd bag the whole thing now. Nancy Pelosi stayed in much the same. She doesn't think that we should have any debates before the election. She has a different reasoning. Now start there with Linda Kenyon, our Westwood one colleague for a few more hours or I was grateful for a participation in D. C. Linda. What was Nancy Pelosi's Reasoning behind calling for Biden to refuse. He's already agreed to have three debates with the president, but she wants him to refuse. All three debates her reasoning. What is it? Well. She told the press conference that she doesn't believe that Biden should legitimize the debate with Trump because, she says Trump and I'm going to quote here has not comported himself in a way that anybody has any association with truth, evidence, data and facts. So basically, she's saying that he's not going to abide by the rules. He's going to live through the whole thing. And then she harkened back to his debate with Hillary Clinton, where he literally left the podium. They started stalking her while she was speaking. And he said, You know that someone should have stopped that. But you know, we've come to expect this president is very unconventional things and they fully expect that he'll do it again and that he doesn't act. Uh, presidential respect, Theosophy hold, you know a couple things number one. He obviously acts presidential because he is, in fact, the president so anything he does is, by definition presidential. Let's be honest. Linda, Do you remember? This is back Bush, Gore and Ah Al Gore's consultants had told him he had a dress in beige or something. And then he had a debate with George W. Bush. And then he had to act more manly than this poor guy is so screwed up. And do you remember when he approached George W. Bush trying to trying to intimidate him? And Bush just turned and said, how you doing? It was game set and match right then and there because it looks so absurd when Gore went over to try to intimidate Bush and Bush was having none of it. So I do remember the incident you're talking about. Yeah, they were saying the door was too stiff. He needed to lighten up. He needed to be more aggressive and, yeah, that backfired. But there is something to be said that we watch these now as performance. We don't really And follow the policy health. Sometimes a policy isn't really that different from candidate to candidate they'd speak in, you know, tested, you know, focus group tested sentences, and it doesn't really move the needle on any useful information for the American public. I I kind of agree that I begged the whole thing, but the problem is, and you can elaborate on this set. You know, Biden now for him to say OK, I agree with the speaker of the house. I'm going to forgo the debates. He would look weak and cowardly. You know, to a lot of people, and certainly the president would make a good use of that. Yeah, well, that would feed into the president's narrative. He has literally called Joe Biden weak. He's called him Sleepy Joe. He likes them names for everybody. And, and he has also recently said that That he thinks Biden should be drug tested before debate because he feels that his performance in his his debate in the primary We're ah, very bad, but suddenly had a great debate with Bernie Sanders. So he must have been, you know, on jacked up on the Google? Yeah, so And then he has also thrown into question. Joe Biden. Mental acuity. Joe Biden has said I I'm willing to be tested any day, you know, and just try me and he actually says he wants to debate the president. And he's looking forward to it, so there probably will be debate. But nonetheless, Nancy Pelosi says she thinks Joe Biden will do very well in the debate. She just doesn't feel that he should legitimize. Trump by by putting himself in that position when the Kenyan our western one colleague in D, C. Did you happen to Did you happen to attend the speech on the South Lawn last night? Were you assigned to that that beat I was assigned to it, but I was not there. I was in the booth. Okay? Yeah. Trump used Biden's name last night. 40 times. One time, as you mentioned called him weak mentioned by 40 times in 70 minutes. Heightened in use Trump's name once last week. Why do you suppose that isthe Well, President Trump does have a way of, you know, marching to the tune of his own drummer. And so he follows his own rule. There has been an unwritten rule among candidates, not just in the presidential races. But in all racers. Do not mention your opponent's name just referred to them as my opponent. Because too much name recognition might cause people to go to the polls and go. We should I both for Oh, I've heard about this guy. I'll vote for him and that I might be your opponents so he has broken the rules of of Of, you know, presidential campaigning and campaigning in general by constantly naming the name of his opponent, But he also wants Tio sort of, you know, kick up more dust and Biden's eyes, Tio. To come to say, you know, Biden did this wrong inviting did that wrong in? Biden wouldn't be a strong president. And he actually called Joe Biden, a Trojan Force for Social? Sure. Well, they need to ratchet up the fear factor for the Biden Harris.

"Com Lightning ride with Rod Blagojevich from a 90 w hell s been, Shapiro said. We're taking your calls at 855236 30 to 28. That is 855236 30 to 28 Eric in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Your invention shall go for it, Eric. A bunch of peer over so I'm a huge fan. I thank you for letting me on your show You my question. The question was, Have you heard of the shooting happened in Kenosha, Wisconsin. I'm from Kenosha. We just drove through and we just saw the aftermath of eluding. You want to get your opinion on the shooting and the looting and everything's going on. So my feelings on this I mean, talk about them all day. Actually, my my feelings on this are I have no idea what happened in the shooting, and you don't have any idea what happened in shooting and nobody has any idea of what happened in the shooting. And here's All we know is what we've seen on the tape, which is a black man who is walking away from the police. They have their pistols drawn already when he is walking away from them, and then they don't shoot him. While he's walking. He simply walks over his car. He opens the door, he appears to bend down. And then you hear the shots. That's the whole thing. That's all we know that we've been told by Benjamin Crump is the attorney for the family. He was there to break up a fight between two women. We know there were kids in the car, but that's from the attorney of the guy. We actually haven't heard the police account. As of yet, we know that the guy had a long rap sheet. We know that he had a an open warrant, so I have no idea what happened. You don't have any idea what happened. That's that's all the documentary evidence we have. And yet this has prompted every Democratic official of whom I have heard to suggest that this is not only an unjustified shooting, it is a racial Shooting, which is again in the absence of evidence in extraordinarily horrifying thing to say, But if you wait for the damned evidence to come out instead, all these politicians have such a perverse incentive structure our country right now, If you're a politician, the incentive is jump immediately to say that it's a bad shooting. It's racist. Because if you don't then people are going to say you don't care enough. And then if it turns out later it was a fine shooting. And it wasn't racist. Like illegally find Nina wasn't racist. You simply pretend that you never said anything wrong that we still have major Democratic candidates, including Kamala Harris, by the way. Claiming that Michael Brown's shooting was a murder Michael Brown. That's shooting by by Officer Darren Wilson. In Ferguson, Missouri, was held to be justified not just by two separate prosecutors in the county but also by the Obama, DOJ and Kamala Harris continued to maintain the Michael Brown was murdered. Okay, We're gonna get the same thing here. We don't know any of the facts yet. Oh, here is statements from Governor Tony Evers, the stupid governor up in Wisconsin, Who saying things like we need a full and fair investigation, And also we do know that lots of black people have been killed unjustifiably by white people in the United States. How the hell is that helpful? You literally don't wait for the investigation by your own executive branch. You don't wait for any of the information Come out, you immediately just jumped based on a fragmentary And honestly, not particularly well shot video because you can't actually see what's what's happening with the With the guy's hand. You can see what's happening inside the car or anything. Based on that you're gonna have every democratic politician in the country, suggesting that this is just more evidence of systemic American racism. It's unbelievable, and then people burning down cities based on this stuff, And if you say he's back there burning down cities they said, Well, don't you care about the person who was shot? But what does it even if I believed that the shooting were bad and or racist? Why would that justify burning down churches, Which is what we saw Burning down car dealerships. Derek, you drove through Kenosha. What's it look like over there right now. Yeah, the car dealership. Um every car was burned down, and it's right next to Ah Unitarian Universalist Church, and they had undersigned black lives matter and other sign is longer. There really burned down. Well done, Everybody. Well done, everybody. I mean, And isn't that really an indicator of where we are? None of this helps black people. I mean, seriously, If you're a black person in America, you're worried about a lot of issues and you should be worried about a lot of issues. But it seems to me that low on the list of issues that threaten black lives in America are racist, white police officers, statistically speaking, if I was thinking that that doesn't mean you can't worry about it doesn't mean it's not an issue. The idea that racist white police officers are willingly putting every black life in America. Endangering this is this is one of the pictures being put forth by members of them of the Democratic Party is crazy. It is not statistically verified and the notion that you can jump Based on an incomplete data point t the consistent refrain that America is systemically racist and hates black people. And this is just another indicator of it. And so when people burned down car dealerships, they have black lives matter. Symbols on them or churches. They're black lives matter signs on them that this is somehow helping black Americans. How is any of this helping the country? I have no idea. I've been told repeatedly. The black lives matter. Movement is making the country better. I have yet to see any evidence that this is the case whatsoever. Any of it any of it. They haven't even supported any solution. That is good. When Senator Tim Scott put forward some curbs to qualified immunity, the Democratsfilibuster NIT This is absurdity, Eric. I appreciate the call and stay safe out there. Kyle.

Is Trump abusing his power over the judiciary?

"This is news in focus where we offer our insights into the stories that matter before we go any further. I want to address today. Sentencing of a man Roger Stone Roger Stone. He's become the sentencing of Roger Stone. A LONGTIME CONFIDANTE DONALD TRUMP for lying to Congress obstruction and witness tampering was mired in controversy. Over how the. Us Justice Department handled the case under public pressure from the president. Mr Stone received a forty month sentence whereas prosecutors had recommended that he serve up to nine years. This followed seven cases of presidential clemency for White Collar criminals whose convictions included extortion fraud and lying to White House officials. Yes we have commuted. The sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail We have Birdie character we have Mike Milkin. Who's gone around and done an incredible job? Offer is the independence of America's judiciary under threat. Or as Mr Trump simply using the powers a lot to him on the line with me to discuss this is ed loose. Us National Editor and columnist and Cottam Schober US legal and enforcement correspondent. I let's hear a clip from president trump taken. Just a couple of days before stone sentencing. Just so you understand. I chose not to be involved. I'm allowed to be totally involved. I'm actually I guess the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the country but I've chosen not to be involved but he is a man of great integrity. But I would be. I could be involved if I wanted to be man of integrity he is referring to is the US Attorney General William Bar but is this credible given the tweets he published before the sentencing of Roger. Stone got tell us first about the case of Roger Stone which you've covered for the F. T. Who was he exactly? What was his crime? And was the sentence particularly lenient for this kind of case. Roger Stone is a flamboyant veteran political operative in the US. His career goes all the way back to working on Richard Nixon's election campaign and he has basically been the person you call as a Republican presidential candidate. When you want to get your hands dirty. He called himself a dirty trickster and he is an expert in this sort of Makir side politics in the two thousand sixteen election. He was a sort of informal adviser to Donald Trump. And one of the things he was trying to do was make contact with wikileaks. When it became known that wikileaks had a trove of hacked emails from the Democrats to use it for political gain. The thing that he was convicted of is in two thousand seventeen when Congress began investigating. What exactly went on to twenty sixteen election? The House Intelligence Committee called on Mr Stone and asked him about some of the comments he had made during the campaign and Mr Stone lied to. Congress about who is intermediary was or who he was referring to when he was talking about having an intermediary allied when. He said that he didn't have any documents or any written materials or any taxed of his conversations with that intermediary. The sentence he eventually received was actually probably pretty in line with what other sort of white collar criminals convicted of lying to. Congress or the government have received the key issue in his case was he had threatened a longtime friend of his who was also another witness. Basically saying don't contradict my story and those thrashed included threatening his dog for example the key issue at stake was whether he was serious about that and whether therefore has sent should be jacked up significantly because he had made violent threats and eventually the judge took the view that although it was serious that he'd made violent threats. The person that he had threatened didn't actually feel like they were going to experience violence. Ed Tell us a bit more about Mr Stone. And the history of his friendship with the President and whether you think Mr Trump's tweets constituted interference in the judicial process. Yeah as I said. He's a flamboyant dirty tricks. Who GOES WAY BACK TO LATE? Six hundred seventy trump maximum in the late seventies. He was introduced to try but he quickly hit it off. They shed philosophy of you know playing to win that no method is invalid. Never apologize never explain. Stone set up with couple of other people are very well known lobby group in Washington. One of his clients was trump who was seeking tax breaks a casino. He was setting up in Atlantic City. And really they've been great friends since then so the ties between trump and stone go along way that very deep and they're often allegedly nefarious in terms of the League outlook from this. I have no doubt that trump will seek to podcastone fast opportunity. Trump's on the Guy Senate acquittal spring cleaning of his administration ruthlessly seeking out anybody who isn't very very loyal so to get rid of weather that Meghan appointees the civil savage. Anybody perceive does slightly disloyal. Not Enough is being pledged. Loyalty is a hugely important hugely. Important thing to trump and stern has shown loyalty he has not. He is not divulged things that have damaged the president. He's showing toughness. He's been very Trumpian in how he's dealt with. Franchi's accused the judge me by of being a biased judge which she's rejected this very trumpian and I have no doubt that it will culminate in at some point. President trump pardoning Roger Stern question about what trump actually did part of the reason. Roger Stone was so controversial. Was that line prosecutors involved in this case we're uncomfortable with what Mr Trump and the justice department we're doing. Can you explain that to viewers and why it was such a problem so there are four prosecutors who secured Mrs Jones conviction trial so the trial team? They filed their sentencing recommendation which was seven to nine years which there's no bones about it. That's a serious sentence for anybody to serve and then that evening all of a sudden early hours of the morning so after midnight trump tweets calling it a miscarriage of justice. He says this is unacceptable and Lo and behold the very next day the DOJ which is the US Department of Justice DOJ officials. Start saying that they agree that the sense would be unwarranted and adair kind of reverse it. The following day afternoon we see all four the prosecutors quit the case including one of them actually quits his job at the DOJ entirely and subsequently a new sentencing recommendation is put forward. Which says we'RE NOT GONNA ask for a particular sentence but it ought to be far less than seven to nine years. The idea that four prosecutors would quit a case. All at once is astonishing and it was a very serious and important moment and DOJ his trip shook the DOJ. It was a very dramatic moment in Washington and the question then was was doj senior leadership. William bar the. Us Attorney General. Was He reacting to an order from trump or was something else going on now the lion that DOJ has stuck to is that there was a miscommunication between the US Attorney's office in Washington DC and between main justice headquarters also in DC? But they're separate offices. Basically Mr. Barr says he was not expecting to see a seventy nine year recommendation. The new prosecutor brought on sat at the sentencing that the prosecutors who filed a recommendation that you good faith and thought that they had been given approval to do so and so Mr Bar said listen. This is not about trump. This is about. I think that that sentence was appropriate and I was not told about what was going on. The important thing here is whether or not Mr trump explicitly ordered the attorney general chains recommendation. It's still gets to this question about how our friends of the president being treated in their cases now it's pretty common across the US for federal prosecutors to request tough even harsh sentences. That's not unknown. You don't often see the attorney general weighing in to ask for lighter sentences and certainly DOJ policy at the moment is to prosecute people to the fullest extent of the law to secure the longer sentences possible so whether or not Mr Trump's tweets were an express order to Mr Bar that he followed a whether he was acting independently. It still gets to this question about if your friend of the president. How are you going to be treated by this? Doj while we're on the subject of Friends of the president. The other thing that happened last week was a series of presidential pardons for White Collar criminals specifically several that have connections to Mr Trump. I talk about Michael Milkin. What did he do and why does it matter that he was pardoned? Michael Milkin is to people on Wall Street a hero. He effectively invented the junk bond or high yield bond market in the eighties and then he was brought low by prosecutors and the SEC and eventually guilty to securities fraud and nine hundred ninety. He served about twenty two months in prison after being initially sentenced to ten years. Ever since then he's been rebuilding his reputation. He's a philanthropist. Now has the Milken Institute and for a long time people on Wall Street rich and powerful people have felt that he was prosecuted unjustly and deserved a pardon. The other person. Mr Trump pardon rod blagojevich is perhaps less of a popular figure in any area. He was the former Democratic governor of Illinois and was prosecuted for trying to extort a children's Hospital for campaign contributions and also trying to sell the vacated Senate seat of Barack Obama when he became president his case involves some quite lurid wiretap quotes. Where he talked about Mr Obama's Tennessee. Being a very valuable thing with various explosives and that he wasn't going to give it away for nothing. The fact that these pardons came just a day or two before Roger. Stone's sentencing is pretty mistake -able signal of Mr Trump's power to grant clemency. Whatever case that he wants so prosecutors can go after his fans and associates. Jerry can commit crimes. Judge can sentence them to however long they want ultimately. Mr Trump has under the constitution the pardon power and that was a pretty stark exercise of that pardon power on the eve of a close friend of his being sentenced. Ed Do you think we're gonNA see more interventions this spy trump perhaps related to the Mueller probe into Russian interference in the election. People like Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen. Who Manafort I think would definitely be a case for another pop and I would be very surprised if Michael Cohen Without Him. Because Michael Cohen Tablet Trump describes a rat in that inimitable. Kind of multi language that the president sometimes uses Michael. Cohen testified to Congress very damagingly against president. Trump's he's considered to be a tax cut. The thing that links you know all these Haden's whether it's Michael Milkin Rod Blagojevich Obama Carrick. Us police commissioner who was the security guard incidentally for Rudy Giuliani. The thing that links all of them is that they're pretty well connected people who've committed white-collar crimes and who have upbeat through Fox News. In some cases that Bregovic wife spoke on Fox News. He carrots by on Fox News to capture the president's attention and I think the pattern is again very trumpian thing. It's it's about. People who trump identifies with he feels as acute. Did he feels. He's fatty toxic at he. Identifies WITH OTHERS. Who fit that description again though. The role of connections and of mutual friends and a Fox as dishing platform for pardon. These are very common. There's a pattern here. How big a cause of concern is all this. I mean it's trump's use of the pardon power markedly different from other presidents will Clinton famously on his last day in office Rich Hedge Fund billionaire and friend of the Clintons Madonna to the Clintons and that caused a lot of bad blood. Clinton was heavily criticised for intervening on behalf of a friend and it stood out and I guess the reason I mentioned that is it. Was Fatty unusual. It's now completely normal. Trump has happened many many people who under the inventions of us? Pardon history wouldn't ready quantify so I think he has changed quite dramatically and just to add on. There's an interesting historical link year. Another controversial use of the pardon power in the past was George H W Bush who infamously pardoned a whole swath of former officials who are indicted in connection to the Iran Contra Scandal and bill bar the current. Us Attorney General was back then also attorney general and so Mr Bar He had pushed not just for one. Pardon of Caspar Weinberger. Who was the former Secretary of defense? He said listen. If you're gonNA pardon any of these people you have to pardon all of them. I think his quote was in for a penny in for a pound and so you may have the curious historical echo if MR trump loses later this year of his attorney general at the end of his time in office being the same attorney general at the end of George W Bush's time in office advising him on. You know who to pardon before he leaves Hamas all this been received in Washington and then around the US do people care. It's been received as many other actions by president trump being received with a high temperature reaction inside the Washington. Beltway and shrug outside the GNOMES that being trashed here in a row very significant look at the powers of the presidency. The procedures the the president uses before he acts and the conventions so that being shredded caused great angst in Washington. Dc across the political divide and almost badly registered a ripple outside of Washington. The same of course applies to impeachment. It really didn't resonate much isn't resonating match in the Democratic primaries. In places like Iowa New Hampshire and so I think this is far far lower. It may be it should be different than ideal while but it registered FAFA LOA on the vote says right of than than even impeachment.

S. ambassador to Germany to the powerful position of acting director of national intelligence and they can get an acting position the president was able to sidestep Senate confirmation at number one this week the democratic debate and the presidential race the debate held this week in advance of the Nevada caucus proved to be the most contentious of the nine televised forums held by the Democrats thus far and the first appearance of Michael Bloomberg in this royal rumble made it quite interesting to say the least thank you Kevin Casey from talkers magazine you're plugged into the Michael Harrison rap now that we have Iowa and New Hampshire behind us and are on the verge of the Nevada caucuses this week's ninth Democratic Party presidential debate took on extreme importance joining us is a man who is a big deal in Nevada not to mention the entire talk media world is heard daily on the USA radio network and seen a newsman X. T. V. Wayne Allyn root Wayne Allyn root you've got a hell of a career years as a Las Vegas sports handicapper then a vice presidential candidate on the libertarian ticket and now a radio and TV talk show host not to mention a buddy of the president let's tap into your handicapping skills if you were a betting man which one of the candidates that we saw on the stage the other night do you think is going to go on to win the nomination well you know look I'd be I'd be a good odds maker of I told you that Bloomberg chances with all his money are still zero but I'm a really good handicapper because I predict that before the debate before he blew up on the stage left I mean that was that had to be the single worst debate performance in history I just put a tweet out literally five minutes before you call for this interview and it said Mike Bloomberg set an all time record last night Bloomberg is the first gambler to ever lose three or twenty million one night in Vegas A. B. I thought it overnight the minute I woke up it struck me they lost three or twenty million one that is campaign imploded last night that was the single worst debate performance in history but I I you know my family said a break if you can back it up I have consistently predicted that the matter how much money yet he's gonna wind up in the same places transpire money doesn't buy elections you've got to have passionate fans trump has the most passionate fans in the world and number two behind him is Bernie Sanders and that's what I predicted the beginning it's gonna be a trump Sanders backed up even though Democrats you know he'd still one of the democratic establishment doesn't want it it won't do anything to stop they've got super delegates to stop them they want a brokered convention I'm sure they're gonna get a brokered convention but they're in a lose lose position this is the best thing ever happened president trump because there's only two things in my opinion it could happen Bernie Sanders can either win the nomination which is a disaster for them because I think trump will win in the store a landslide victory because communism doesn't sell well give capitalism in America anyway L. or number two they go to a brokered convention Bernie is in the lead a big lead but not enough to clinch said now to brokered convention and they steal it from them in front of the whole world and he's got the most passionate Democrat supporters normal they may be communist Marxist and socialist I mean he did really they believe in but you can't steal it from them and therefore they hit home to vote and whoever they handed to ostensibly Hillary Clinton Michelle Obama Oprah Winfrey I don't know who to get handed to whoever they had a two had it linked up with no chance to win our wineries passionate support they get wet okay back up one second let's let's let's let's get a little more real although there's great drama and perhaps a lot of truth to what you're saying so I'm not I'm not arguing with you but calling him a communist is a giant leap from calling him a socialist you don't really believe that Bernie Sanders is a communist do you that's it you're just saying that it for drama and and I you know I disagree I disagree I think that there's been a terrible mistake in this country that people act as if there's a difference between being a communist a socialist and Bernice I think that thinks that and it sounds like you think that but I studied communism and socialism many many many years but I think that I studied since I was a political science major Colombian oversee it people need to stop separating them and make you like there's a big difference between the two socialism is the economic system of communism name a communist country they've all had a socialist economic system communism is the political system so you could have theoretically one without the other but generally they are always together the way you get a social system is a communist government they all have it when you talk about the Viet nam the old communist China what do you talk about Russia the Soviet Union when you talk about Venezuela Cuba they do go hand in hand communism and socialism social in the just the economic lever and if you ever ate at socialism as he calls himself the American economy Bernie Sanders and and really every Democrat on that stage they all believe the same things it's just a matter of how far they're willing to take it but Bernie is the most extreme in the most radical of all of them and he's the only one who proudly uses the word socialism the rest of the run from it but if you ever install that system you would not just undo everything that Donald Trump is done to create a great super Condamine great jobs in the middle class is doing the best they've done a decades wages are up growth is up everything's up a black unemployment Hispanic at a place you would only destroy all that words all all that you would destroy the entire American economy would never recover there is a difference in social communism just from you say economic versus political versus torturing kidnapping and murdering but it always starts with Chuck socialism and it always leads to political repression and political censorship and if you think that's a big reach Michael I don't know I might feel I reshoot your explanation of it I certainly respected I just don't believe in black and white thinking I believe that there's a political spectrum of degrees of anything you could say the same thing about right wing politics that it's fascism you could say that about anything the the hill Q. human condition is one of gradations one of conduct one of spirit there's so many different angles to it but I like what you said stand I don't want to argue with you but I just think that there are elements of socialism and their elements of right wing is and there's elements of communism and everything it's how you play it out in the spirits which you enter it that matters I would agree but remember we've already approved for the media tries to ignore it there've been undercover videos by what's that kid's name o'keefe of the of the guides that project veritas and he's an undercover videos of Bernie Sanders people in the field all over American it just so happens that multiple people I think there's been five of them died all say the same kind of things man if we win we're sending the Republicans the re education camps and if they don't get re educated we're going to kill them this happened I've heard and seen the videos and the audios and it just can't be a coincidence that it's Bernice people only nobody's ever heard that from a traditional Democrat nobody even heard it from a Liberal Democrat I'm not a fan of Andrew Cuomo Michael but I don't begin to Cuomo as staffers who see words like we gotta send Republicans to re education camps we're gonna kidnap awarded torture we're gonna murder him and there's a revolution coming in people going to die they hate that in the Bernie care that's a scary thing I believe Bernie it would be a disaster for the United States of America that this country would never recover from and I believe that generally what party believes in leads to pure political repression censorship and eventually jailing dissidents just like they did in Cuba just like the doing today in Venezuela and this guy has defended Fidel Castro his whole life and today he defend Venezuela so I I don't see a big difference which could lead to potentially okay all that well said all that aside back to your handicapping which one of the candidates that were on that that was on the stage at the debate this week do you think would have the best chance even though I know you're gonna say none of them have a chance but which one do you think would fare the best if Sanders were nominated or Amy or or any of them which one do you think would fare the best against trump well firstly you worded that perfectly because you you just see S. B. Michael who won the debate last idea to throw up the guy was on the stage when the paper you'd said very smartly which one on the stage was the winner of which one on the stage would be the best way to get trapped I don't think they've got a great one against trump I think Dave did you and I said it's the most flood group of candidates I've ever seen I said Biden would have the best chance except it's very clear to me on on some occasions not last night I think he's pretty good last night and many occasions during this campaign he stumbled around like a man's way past its prime that's USA radio network and newsmax TV talk show host Wayne Allyn root coming up.

Miami: Fort Lauderdale resident and Trump Associate Roger Stone To Be Sentenced Thursday

"Stone is set for sentencing on Thursday the longtime ally of President Donald Trump will receive his sentence amid an outcry of political meddling by attorney. General William Bar in criminal cases tied to trump the sixty seven year old stone was found guilty. Last fall on seven counts of lying to Congress witness tampering and obstruction. Prosecutors initially recommended that he be sentenced to seven to nine years in prison. But the Justice Department which is headed by bar intervened to reduce the sentence following criticisms from trump. The president called the initial sentence recommendation an insult to the country but the recommendation was ridiculous. I thought the whole prosecution was ridiculous and I look at others. That haven't been prosecuted or I know where it is now but when you see that I thought it was an insult to our country and it shouldn't happen and we'll see what what goes on there but that was a that was a horrible aberration. These are the I guess. The same muller people put everybody through hell and I think it's a disgrace. The Justice Department's interference has been widely controversial and received more backlash on Tuesday when the president commuted the prison sentence of former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich while also announcing orden's for seven others former federal prosecutor. Juliet Sorensen told the Associated Press that? Trump's clemencies are sending an inconsistent message. Nobody's disagreeing that. It's Daddy did in the president's power to issue these pardons and commutations. It certainly is I think the question is whether or not there is a compelling basis for doing so. They don't seem to individuals to whom society has dealt unfair hand They don't seem should be convicted of crimes where there is increasing consensus. That insist were unjust. Or especially punitive

Trump declares himself 'chief law enforcement officer' of America

"After commuting the sentences of former Illinois governor rod the glade vision former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik among others president trump seem to take his authority one step further yesterday I'm actually I guess the chief law enforcement officer of the country but I've chosen not to be involved my guest is former federal prosecutor Jennifer Rogers who teaches at Columbia Law School so chief law enforcement officer is the designation usually given to the U. S. Attorney General can trump claimed that title as president I don't think so I mean he's not a law enforcement officer at all I mean he's the head of the executive branch of course and you know it is true to say that there's no legal barrier to him presiding over and involving himself in the department of justice's work but that's not the same thing as saying he's the chief law enforcement officer which suggests that he actually has not just the authority but a reason to do that like he's supposed to be involving himself in that matter he said this after he granted clemency in several politically charged cases without going through the established pardon process what do you see this ad is it trump flouting his authority is it from setting up future pardons for friends or something else well I think both of those things I mean it you know some of the people pardoned or granted commutation yesterday did have relationships with him I mean rod Blagojevich for example was on celebrity apprentice with him years ago so it's certainly some of that but I think it's also the first point you make which is I don't care about how things are supposed to be done I don't care about the men and women of the justice department who worked so hard in these cases and who in the normal pardon process would give me the benefit of all of their wisdom about these cases I'm just going to do whatever I want to DO and guess what no one can do anything about it I mean that's a big part of the message here that he's not only flouting the regular kind of establish procedures by you know kind of thumbing his nose at all of us in a way there's nothing we can do to stop it well he also contrary to the stated preferences of Attorney General William Barr he continued his tweets about the Roger stone case and denigrated the judge in that case you have to wonder where he's going with that yeah I mean this is also part of a pattern he has been denigrating judges since he was a candidate you know remember he what he said about the judge who had part of the fraud case against his trump university so they know this is part of the pattern for him and the and again it's you know I can do what I want no one can stop me not even you know I'm I'm not even considering off limits that another branch of government you know he'll go ahead and denigrate judges and challenge them and of course the judiciary is you know a separate and co equal branch of government so that's part of his pattern as well I don't think the judge Amy Berman Jackson is or will be intimidated or wait at all by what the president is saying so won't have that particular impact but again it's part of him telling the rest of us you know I am I can do whatever I want I'm uncontrollable and he's going to continue to be that way I think what does this do to the career prosecutors at the justice department he's commenting on cases and judges and granting clemency without going through the process have you talked to colleagues in the justice department to see where they're at yeah it's really demoralizing for people at the justice department I mean I certainly spoken with many former colleagues of mine and I know also that people still in the department are just very concerned about what's going on you know they are taught from day one we all were that your job is to do the right thing it is in a political job you don't take those issues into account and you're not supposed to do favors for people you know friends of people in power just like you're not supposed to go after the political enemies of the people in power and so to see the president urging those things that are so contrary to the fair administration of justice as all people in the justice department swear to uphold is really concerning and so I think that the department is really revealing right now which is part of the reason that Bill bar with I think trying to calm people down with the statements that he made the other day there are also rumors that bill Barr was going to resign as Attorney General of course the department spokeswoman said he has no plans to resign with those rumors possibly aimed at an audience of one president trump I have no idea you know whether that was aimed at at trump to push back on him a little bit or aimed at the men and women in the department to say don't worry I take this very seriously and I'm ready to resign if you know our independent our ability to do our job continues to be meddled with by the president but I also hate those statements of the rumors of those statements with an entire shaker full of salt because you know it seems to me that bill Barr has been doing exactly what he had wanted to do in terms of increasing executive power at the expense of his own department since he came into the job so the notion that as successful as he's been seeking really exactly these results that he's working on now you know that he would resign now seems to me a far

G. O. P. Illinois Republicans urged trump not to grant clemency saying in a letter that it would send a damaging message on your efforts to root out public corruption in our government well going which was eight years into his sentence now to some of the others the Barlow was convicted gambling fraud in nineteen ninety eight and character the head of the NYPD during the September eleventh attacks pleaded guilty to tax fraud to much other charges in two thousand nine he serve more than three years in prison couple of points especially when it comes to rod logo a **** his sentence was an extreme he actually campaigned as an ethics reformer and then what he did was he added to himself to the long list of corrupt politicians in Illinois any did it in stunning fashion with the recordings where he's saying look this Senate seat it's freakin golden I'm not just handing it out to anybody I want something for was about sending a message can't do that I thought this one Twitter account that I follow made a great point the person said how does the excessive sentence for rod will go a bit should Democrats handed down during the Obama administration support the claim that the justice department is biased against conservatives the the very sentence the very prosecution the trump is saying was excessive unfair that was a Democrat that received that sends a Democrat the face that prosecution and it happened during the Obama administration and there are thousands of people behind bars who deserve pardons or commutations who don't have famous friends who don't have relatives that have connections to the White House what about them president instead of pardoning these swampy people who were convicted on all kinds of different charges related to corruption how bout pardoning more non violent drug offenders serving insane prison sentences he's done it the past little push from Kim Kardashian that's what he should be focused on with pardons and commutations not Ron will go a virtue served as one of illinois' most corrupt governors and then was a contestant on trump's celebrity apprentice it's it's it's hard to square the fact that president trump claims he's on a crusade against corruption was in that what the whole Ukraine story was about you were trying to root out corruption that's why he was focused on Beres Maya and hunter Biden and Jill Biden that's what you heard from Republicans he's trying to fight corruption is trying to fight corruption and then you commute the sentence of a corrupt former governor right to sell to people like the Barlow junior and Bernie Kerik cannot it doesn't square up now on.
