"26 where electrical contractors come to grow. Saturday morning welcome to the weekend we made it everybody September 30th, 2023. Glad you're with us. I'm Dean Lane our producer is Matt Paul. Among the top stories we're following for you as we roll into this weekend Saturday morning together on WTOP. Begin the ride this half hour with the latest countdown to shut down in less than 24 for hours the federal government. It could be the first sign though of progress in the effort to avoid that government shutdown in a matter of hours. Now according to The Hill this morning House Speaker Kevin McCarthy yesterday evening Friday floated passing what is called a clean continuing resolution that is one without Ukraine aid. However the Speaker did not commit to placing such a measure up for a vote. Other Republicans had said on Friday they are still exploring GOP only possibilities to vote on later today Saturday shutting out any talk of bipartisanship at this point. There are a few options on the table right now left in this matter of hours that's left until the midnight deadline for Congress to avoid the government shutdown. The House has voted to reject a Republican stopgap spending bill this week as well. Let's get the very latest in forms of a preview with WTOP's Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller today on the Hill Saturday morning. The House vote on the GOP short -term spending bill fell well short losing 198 to 232 with 21 Republicans voting against their party's legislation. It's a bruising defeat for House Speaker Kevin McCarthy who was unable to deliver the votes needed to get it to the Senate. This is the reaction from the House's top Democrat Hakeem Jeffries. We are in the middle of a Republican civil war that has been ongoing for months and now threatens a catastrophic government shutdown that will hurt everyday Americans. The Senate meanwhile continues to press ahead with its short -term measure which even if it passes won't be approved for Saturday's midnight deadline. Also in the Senate high praise from both sides of the aisle for longtime Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein. Alaska Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski says she counted her as a friend. Dianne Feinstein was generous, she was gracious, she was thoughtful, she was bold. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says Feinstein had a special quality. Her integrity was a diamond. integrity Her shone like a beacon across the Senate and across the country. Feinstein was the longest -serving woman ever in the Senate and her last vote came on Thursday on the short -term spending bill crafted to keep the government up and running.

David McCormick: Bob Casey Has Supported 98% of Biden's Policies
"Could not put your finger on a single thing that he's done from from is what arguably one of the most significant states in the country, the birthplace of our country and a battleground state. But here's the thing, Mark, that is just shocking. Under Joe Biden, Bob Casey has voted 98 % with Joe Biden. He's a rubber stamp that has over and over again supported the policies that are taking our country in a terrible direction, whether it's the border, inflation, law and order. And so this is emblematic of someone who's not actively fighting for the interests of Pennsylvania, but has essentially adapted of the terrible policies of Joe Biden. And that's why I believe that when presented with an opportunity to vote for someone who's going to fight for them, who's an independent leader, who's going to fight for the people of Pennsylvania and who's going to act as a leader, I think that there's a real chance that Pennsylvania's will will make the different choice. And I'm going to work hard during their vote. Well, the Democrat ruling class in Pennsylvania is frightened of you. The governor put out an edict, which is intended to harm your election chances, automatic voter registration. He did it without any legislation from the legislature in Pennsylvania. That's directly aimed at you, I believe. case In of the Bob Casey, what he does is he overwhelms the airwaves. It's very expensive in Pennsylvania. You have all these these big cities, but you have these sort of cluster areas of big cities with suburbs. And so the media market is very expensive, and he expects to overwhelm you with all kinds of donations from Schumer, the hard -left Democrat billionaires, and all the rest of it. And this is why I've endorsed you, because I think you're good you're on the issues, a good debater, and you have at least some finances, significantly so, to take

A highlight from Katy Faust
"Hey you, have you checked your bucket list lately? Are you ready to take care of item number seven? Listening to The Eric Mataxas Show? Well welcome, tune in, and then move on to item number eight. Skydiving with Chuck Schumer and AOC. Here now is Mr. Completed My Bucket List at age 12, Eric Mataxas. Hey there folks, welcome. I'm excited to have back as my guest Katie Faust. Faust, Katie Faust. New book called Raising Conservative Kids in a Woke City. Katie, welcome back. So good to be with you. You've got a nice little feature in my storyline of authoring. I didn't write my first book until you were like, Katie, you need to write a book. And I was like, I don't have time. And you're like, well, then your little global children's rights movement is going nowhere. And I was like, well, then I guess I write a book. So credit to you for getting Stacy and I into the official publishing world because we wouldn't have done it without your coercive prompting. Wow, that's terrific. Now, the problem is biblically you have to tithe unto me after the order of Melchizedek. That's biblical since I was the one behind this. And you are without genealogy and eternal, is that how this is working? Well, this is Salem radio, so I guess it all makes sense now. Oh, my God. Oh, that is creepy. The priest of Salem, Melchizedek. All right. I love the fact that tons of people are saying, what, what, what are you talking about? Read your Bibles, people. All right, I don't have time. So Faust, Katie you are your organization is called Them Before Us. Talk about that a little bit before we get into the new book. Yeah, well, I am really passionate about two things. One is when it comes to the changes in culture, law and technology that are taking place in our world today. I'm very passionate about don't touch the kids. Leave the kids alone when it comes to changes in marriage, family, parenthood, reproduction. And right now the world is looking at kids and they're like, those are accessories that I can cut and paste into any and every adult relationship. So the first book is about no children have a right to be known and loved by their mother and father. All adults need to conform to those rights. So whatever is going on in your personal life, leave the kids alone. But I'm also very passionate about something else, and that is leave my kids alone. Don't touch my kids. But that's very challenging because this culture is insane and it's absolutely after our kids. They are hell bent in destroying children's life, family, mind and body. And they do that highly and very effectively through indoctrination, whether that comes through the schools, whether it comes through social media, whether it comes through mainstream media, their friend group, sometimes infiltrating their churches. And so my co -author Stacey and I have written a book about how we have been able to raise collectively our seven kids between our two families in one of the most hostile, progressive cities in the world, Seattle, and largely sending them to public schools. And you can't capture our kids. Like we have been able to locate our worldview in our kids to the point where they can spot the lie. They can stand against the crowd and they can push back. Right. And look, there are a few things that need to be said. First of all, the fact that we are now at a point where the left, broadly defined, is coming after our kids. This is when you move from like mere leftism or from liberalism or whatever we called it in the past into full blown Marxism, cultural Marxism, where they say and they believe the family is the enemy of the state. They want to crush families. They want to divide children from their parents. They want to divide husbands from wives. They want to destroy the family because the family, like God, like people of faith, is their enemy. And so this is something that we need to recognize. It's a new iteration in the long march to the institutions. They have now gotten to a point where they're open about wanting to steal our children, steal our children's minds. And you're quite right. You know, the buck stops here. That's that's not going to happen. We will die as parents before we let you do that. And we will die happily. That's right. Children from these vile ideas. So your book, the new book is Raising Conservative Kids in a Woke City. Now, I want to say there are other options, folks. You don't need to live in a woke city. Perhaps you don't need to send your kids to public school. You can homeschool your kids. I would say the first thing to anybody would be homeschool your kids. You know, go to Sam Sorbo, ask her how to do it. Everybody who says I'm not qualified to do it is totally qualified to do it. But what you're saying, Katie, is that even if you can't do that, even if you can't send your kids to a genuinely faith based traditional school, there is hope. Well, and the deal is like the woke is coming for your kids, even if you're homeschooling them, even if they're in a great private school, it is seeping into their world. I mean, I've got friends at great conservative Christian schools where the woke is infiltrating them as well, where kids are talking about being pansexual. You know, and it's a private Christian school. And I'm surrounded by homeschool kids who are awesome. And I love them. I'm currently running the youth ministry at our church and there's a lot of homeschooled kids. These kids are great. They're also battling these woke ideas. It is also infiltrating their world. So like you cannot bubble wrap your kids. And honestly, you should not try to bubble wrap your kids. There is an appropriate way to shelter your kids early on and then strategically expose them to these ideas. You, the parent, introduce them. You don't let the world introduce it to them. You introduce this in age appropriate ways, in developmentally appropriate stages. And that's what we do in the book is we kind of lay out sort of these stages of learning for kids what you need to be covering in each of these different phases, how to strategically make sure that you are getting to your kids first rather than letting the world introduce these concepts to your kids and thereby establishing yourself as the expert. And parents need to be doing this regardless of your zip code, regardless of how your kids are being schooled. You we all need to inoculate our kids against the woke virus. And if we can do it in Seattle with our kids going to public school, you can do it, too. Well, that's amazing. And listen, what you're saying is, is that, you know, when you say you can't bubble wrap your kids, the point is you want to let them understand why the ideas on the left are bad. Not just say that they're bad, but actually make them understand. No, no, no, no. They're actually bad. They're actually harmful. They're stupid. They're illogical. They're irrational. They're anti -human. They're inhuman. They are failed and failing and will fail. Our kids need to get that. So it's not just my parents believe that and they told me I have to believe that. No, no, no. It's actually true. It's like teaching your kid math. You know, then they can do it on their own. They don't they don't need you once they learn how to do it. So that's an important point to make. So the book is brand new folks raising conservative kids in a in a woke city. And I'd forgotten, Katie, that you lived in Seattle. Of course, I live in New York. And it needs to be said, you said it, but it needs to be said again and again that a lot of these places that we trusted, a Christian schools, Christian institutions, churches have themselves about the need to bail or are perfectly willing to go along with bowing the need to bail. A lot of the institutions that we once took for granted as on the good side have gone to the dark side. Christianity Today magazine completely gone over to the dark side. Campus Crusade, now called Crew, has opened the door to tons of bad ideas. The Gospel Coalition, which was once OK, has opened the door to tremendously pernicious ideas. And so it really does fall to us, the parents, to take this seriously and to understand it is our job. We can no longer entrust our kids to these to these places we once thought were safe. Well, and we talk about in the conclusion, like sometimes it feels like, what can I do? I don't have a huge platform. I'm not in political office. You know, I don't I'm not an author at any of these outlets. You actually have the most position as a parent. Do you understand the power of raising the next generation to embrace conservative ideas? And by that, we define conservatism as you're just recognizing historical, economic and biological reality. That is what conservatism is today. On team reality, folks, it's called reality. We believe in reality. That's right. It's no longer just return to the gold standard, you know, kind of people or or, you know. Hawks on foreign policy, it's like if you recognize that men and women are different, if you recognize that the free market is the best way to conduct ourselves in the economy, if you recognize that life begins at conception, if you recognize that, you know, we are defined by the content of our character, not the color of our skin. I mean, like if you recognize those things, you're a conservative. Welcome to the welcome. Welcome to the red pill, baby. And it's amazing. We have to go to a break. What's the website then before us? Then before us dot com is where you can keep up before us dot com. Katie Faust will be right back with the overturn of Roe v. Wade.

"Hey you, have you checked your bucket list lately? Are you ready to take care of item number seven? Listening to The Eric Mataxas Show? Well welcome, tune in, and then move on to item number eight. Skydiving with Chuck Schumer and AOC. Here now is Mr. Completed My Bucket List at age 12, Eric Mataxas. Hey there folks, welcome to the program. Hey Chris, do you know where I am? I believe you're in Texas. Yes, technically. I'm in Dallas, Texas, and I am in a hotel in Dallas, Texas. Tonight, I'm speaking at an event tonight for Parent Compass. That's going to be the Park City Baptist Church that's here in Dallas. I don't know, I think there's still tickets, but I will be signing books until the cows come home. I'd love that. So if there's anybody who can get to Dallas tonight, I'm speaking tonight, and I'm here for that. And I'm excited about it. I love being here, I have friends here. So with you in Dallas or Texas, you said till the cows come home. Technically, I think we need to state when that is, because that's literal in Texas. Yes, and they come home to Fort Worth, but they commute to Dallas. So tonight I got that event. Tomorrow I fly to California because I got three events in California. I mean, we got a whole bunch of stuff going on. It's a very crazy time. Now, before I forget, in this hour, I'm talking to Willie and Corey Robertson of the Duck Dynasty Robertsons. There's a film coming out this Thursday. Ladies and gentlemen, you need to support this film. These are the kind of films that I'm just telling you, if you don't like what's happening in the culture, which I would assume anybody with a half a brain understands that we're in trouble in American culture, in America, you need to support good things. And when somebody puts something like this out, you need to make an effort. It's the story of Phil Robertson. It's an unbelievable story. I'll be talking to them about it. But please make a note. This is going to be in theaters for, they give you like a week and then it goes away and then the garbage comes back. If it does well, they'll keep it in the theaters like Jesus Revolution, like Sound of Freedom. We need to do everything we can to support this kind of thing, especially when it's good, not just because it tells stories that we like, but it's actually artistically excellent and it tells stories we like.

Fresh update on "schumer" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"I mean, when when we started with the group of people that did not want our country involved in the Ukraine war, we could have met in the Capitol elevator and still had room for social distancing. Now we're 117 strong. We are a majority of the majority. And that is because Congress is the lagging indicator. Republican voters believe that we've sent enough money to Ukraine, that now we need to focus on our border, our country, the safety on our streets, the quality of education in our schools. I mean, we are literally spending $3.5 billion to retire debt that Ukraine accrued before the war began. So we're going into debt to pay off Ukraine's debt. That's how crazy some of these programs are. And it's only through this process that we are acquiring that we're able to highlight that and draw people to our side. Like the only way you go from having three, four, five, seven votes to having 117 is you have to keep taking votes. You have to keep having the argument and ultimately you chip away at it. So I want to just talk real and you're doing the right thing. Single subject. I love it. Joe Biden is not going to sign some of these bills. Right. And so therefore they might call it a government shutdown. If that happens, Matt, which you're not cheering for, I'm cheering for a shutdown. I can't stand the government, but you're not. You're a lawmaker. You're responsible. I'm an upset patriot. I am not cheering for a shutdown. I want to shut down, but that's a separate issue. It's not even a real shutdown. It's a slowdown or a pause. What were to happen if the government were to pause tomorrow evening? I just want to make sure everyone understands we're not talking about the sky is falling, chicken, little stuff, Matt. No, I believe excuse me, Charlie. I think I might have lost my sound. But what I believe is that you really start to feel the highest levels of pain in these shutdowns when people start missing paychecks. And so if we can get the Senate onto these bills, if we can work out a funding strategy before halfway through October, that's very different thing than if you have a shutdown that's over the weekend, which would barely be felt by anyone or that might last a couple days during during a workweek. I don't want people missing paychecks. I don't want people wearing uniform missing paychecks. And by the way, they wouldn't have to. Charlie Kirk, I'm telling you right now, Schumer can bring up our defense bill anytime he wants. He can pass it and we can get our troops paid. No, 100 percent. But but the likelihood is that Schumer and Biden are going to let it shut down, partial shutdown, slow down, pause. And then they're going to blame Matt Gates and these people. But it's it's a lot more complicated than that. I just hope you guys are all bracing for impact. We've lived through these. It's a bunch of media bluster. OK, it's a bunch of D.E.I. bureaucrats at the department interior that don't go to work for a couple of days. OK, do not allow that to hold you hostage.
Kevin McCarthy: Biden Must Address Immigration With the Senate
"Could go to conference and solve that so why am I ask the president sit down because the Senate has not done their job the Senate has not taken up the house work so no the president should step in and do something about otherwise government will shut down just like we're having strikes in Michigan just like we had the five -month strike in California just like we have embassies that are having to be evacuated around the world that's a lack of leadership so show some leadership this is your policies this wasn't a policy that was passed from the House and Senate that opened up this border it was simply your decision and you could do something to change it it would keep government open while we finish the job and hopefully the Senate can get around to appropriation bill that is superb because it happens to be true so they've tried to box him in and he's muscling his way out we're passing appropriations bills and even if we don't get all them passed we're passing them and what's the Senate doing nothing what's Biden doing nothing zero what are they doing about the border they don't even have a proposal on the Senate to fund border security nothing representative Byron Donald's on Capitol Hill today listen to the reporters all the reporters are completely in the back pocket of the of Schumer buying the Democrat Party and their propaganda so the Republicans have to unravel it and let me tell you something they're doing a good job of it cut eight go the Senate bipartisan proposal yeah what do you make of it would you support that if McCarthy brought it to
Fresh "Schumer" from News and Perspective with Tom Hutyler
"Congress barreling toward a government shutdown the first in five years. That after failed the to House pass a short -term funding fix, ABC's Jabra O 'Brien says holdout Republicans are refusing to compromise on a deal to avert the Sunday shutdown deadline. I can tell you the lawmakers that I'm speaking with have almost all resigned to themselves the possibility or the likelihood rather of a government shutdown. One said to me it's not if we shut down it's for how long we shut down. So not a high level of optimism here on Capitol Hill. At the same time today, tributes pouring in for the late Dianne Feinstein, the senator from California died at her home in DC night. last The 90 year old became the longest serving female senator in Congress.

A highlight from Rep. French Hill and Sen. Tom Cotton on opposing the shutdown
"Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt, another gold bump in honor of Senator Goldbars Menendez. I'm joined by Representative French Hill from Arkansas. Representative Hill is one of the smart guys because he's on the Intel Committee. That's handpicked and the Republicans are always serious about that. He's also on foreign affairs and financial services. Our old friend John Campbell used to serve on financial services. That's one of the smart committees. So Representative Hill, welcome back. Good to have you. But you are a Vanderbilt grad, so we're not going to talk about football. Seriously, you lost to Wake Forest and the University of Las Vegas. Does that, how does that go down with the Commodore Nation? Well, it's we're always waiting for golf season. Congressman, the House is going to come up with a solution or the government's going to shut down. What's it going to be? Look, Hugh, if we want to be strong, if we want to lock in the wins that we got in the debt ceiling negotiation, when we put forward a plan that actually cut spending year over year, change the regulatory focus, encourage more people back into the workforce, we need to pass these 11 remaining appropriations bills. And that was not gotten to over the summer, even though now think about this, Hugh, even though each of those bills is written at a spending level below the debt ceiling deal and each one locks in conservative policies. It's really so frustrating to me that those have been delayed from coming to the House floor, including twice over the last week by a handful of members when they're missing this big picture. Lock in the wins, cut spending, reduce regulations, get more people back in the workforce, get the spotlight back on Joe Biden's failures and off of the House. Congressman Hill, I don't expect you to speak ill of a colleague, but I can. Congressman Gates wants to be governor of Florida. Congressman Maryland native Matt Rosendale wants to be senator from Montana. Ralph Norman, Congressman Ralph Norman wants to be senator from South Carolina. Going to run against Lindsey Graham. And Congressman Dan Bishop wants to be the attorney general of North Carolina. So I understand self -interest. Those guys have no interest in governing. But do they really want to bring down the Republican majority? Because they're going to get crushed if they do this. Right. But by this kind of of tactic, you're going to end up with a Biden Schumer clean debt ceiling deal and with spending levels, certainly at the Biden McCarthy level, but weaker policy, weaker policies. Because in order to be the strongest negotiator, get the most conservative win, we need to pass the appropriations bills. That's why McCarthy's plan this week of trying to get the rest of the bills across the floor, at least 70 percent of discretionary spending, plus plus a four week short term stopgap spending measure measure that cut spending, repeat cut spending for that one month and put border in the spotlight by putting H .R. two on. There is no conservative that should vote no on that. And this is just arguing against ourselves. It's a huge mistake. Now, Congressman Hill, I call him now St. Kevin. I've known the speaker for a long time, and now I'm going to have him nominated to be considered for sainthood because that is a difficult caucus to deal with. When you've got four members who are leading the Nuckelhead caucus and my buddy Ken Buck wants a CNN contract, there really isn't any appeal to their self -interest. How do you move them? I mean, are you going to have to use Democrat votes? And can and can Speaker McCarthy remain speaker if he uses Democrat votes? Well, I think that's what we have to try every single day to put a bill on the floor and find out that, as you say, this small group is the tyranny of the tiny, as I describe it, is violating the majority of the majority because they're going to hurt the conservative cause. They'll cause us to lose the House. And that's certainly not in the interest of the conservative cause when we're on the cusp, potentially of beating Biden in the presidential election and winning the Senate back. It's ridiculous. You know, if former President Trump gets reelected and the House switches to Democrats, they will impeach him in the first week. Do these allegedly Trump supporting congressmen. And it's Norman. It's Maryland native Matt Rosendale is running for Senate in Montana. It's Ralph Norman and it's Matt. Have they heard from the former president that he wants to be impeached again because they sure are acting like they want him impeached again? Well, look, they don't even they spend what he says now. President Trump last week said use the power of the purse to get control of Joe Biden's two trillion dollars of extra spending. I agree. That's what the debt ceiling does. And that's what these spending bills do. And that's why we have to get them across the House floor. He did not say he Trump did not say shut the government down and act like knuckleheads. He said, use the power of the purse to get the most conservative deal. Get this country back on track. I agree. That's what we could do if we had those four people assist us get these bills across the floor this week. Well, I just their their incentives are to get ink. And I mean, their incentives are not the incentives to govern. And I don't know how hot it gets in the caucus. Can you tell us that our members of the caucus about had it with these guys? There's nothing you can do because they're running for statewide office. But if they had it and expressed it. Well, I think they have had it and expressed it in blunt terms, including calling them out that if you vote against the rule on the House floor, you're working with the minority party. You're working with Democrats when you do that. That is not acting as a member of the majority. And I think you're seeing the country respond to look at Moody's comments yesterday, look at the VIX up to day three percent. Look at the 10 year Treasury rate up over four point five percent. This is going in the wrong direction when we should be taking a win right now of cutting spending 24 over 23, getting better rules and regulations in place, countering Joe Biden's bad policies. And as I say, encouraging more people back to work through our welfare reforms. These are classic conservative Republican wins. And we're squandering the opportunity. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory is kind of a Republican specialty in the House. So let's let's focus on that for a moment. When do you get a test vote today or tomorrow on whether or not the four will move or they will stay for? They've got more than four right now, but you've got serious people like Chip Roy are not playing these games. Will the Freedom Caucus bring whatever persuasive influence they have to bear on them? Well, we're going to bring a rule. The rules committee met Friday and all day Saturday, so we'll be bringing a rule up either tonight or early in the morning. That will be the first test case to see if we can move these spending bills, which includes state and foreign operations spending, which is at one point seven billion below twenty nineteen levels.
A highlight from Operation Atlantic Resolve
"Well then, welcome to the Dennis Prager Show. Bob France sitting in and yeah, you hear the music, you know where I'm coming to you from. Cleveland, Ohio, the home base, therelieffactor .com studios if you will. Our WHK radio, AM1420, the answer here in Cleveland, Ohio. An honor to be sitting in for Dennis once again. And of course today being Yom Kippur, which is why Dennis is off today. As he has of course been celebrating the holy days and starting back with Rosh Hashanah. The Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. And it's a wonderful thing. It really is. I kind of have to familiarize myself not being Jewish myself. I have to familiarize myself with some of the days and some of the reasons and the explanations for the calendar. And Yom Kippur is one of the ones that to me is the most solemn. A Day of Atonement, a day of reflection and looking inside and asking for forgiveness for the shortcomings that perhaps we have and so forth. And so to Dennis and to everyone who is commemorating and or celebrating and or taking part in participating in the Yom Kippur day today. This very important Day of Atonement. God's blessings to you all. Seriously, really appreciate that. In the meantime, we've got work to do. We have a lot of very important things to talk about and I want you to be a part of the show. 8 Prager776, that's 877 -243 -7776. I want to know, is it acceptable for me to be concerned with the plight of others but being unwilling to do any more than I have already done? And yes, if you're wondering, I'm talking about Ukraine. Yes, if you're wondering, I'm talking about the 113 billion dollars we have already sent to Ukraine to help them ward off the invasion of the Soviet, well, the Russians. Who are trying to rebuild the Soviet empire, I suppose, if you think that they are going to not stop in Ukraine and then advance to other European nations and so forth. I don't think so. I don't think they have the ability to do that any longer. I don't think they are the fearsome foe they were when the Soviet bloc was, of course, raining havoc on Eastern Europe and raining havoc on the world. But I want to talk about the Ukrainian situation. Here's two reasons. Two reasons why. The first of which is the fact that in Canada, over the weekend in front of the Canadian Parliament, the Lord Mayor Zelensky, the President of Ukraine, who came to the United States for the second time, hat in hand, saying please drop all you can into the hat here so that we can go back and continue our war with Russia. They came looking for more money, asking for another 25 billion dollars. And again, I'll get to the point about how I feel about spending that money and how I feel about it going forward in a moment, but he came to the United States and then he went up to Canada. And he went up to Canada before the Canadian Parliament and he sat there and he asked for support and financial remunerations from the Canadians as well. And the Canadians, of course, listened happily. And, you know, we're all all for supporting this. But what they did after that is something that is quite simply incomprehensible to me. Canadian organizations Jewish are among those now slamming the Canadian Parliament for giving voice to and a standing ovation to a man who fought for the Nazis during World War II. All because he is Ukrainian. All because he's Ukrainian. Video and photos show the Canadian Parliament erupting into cheers on Friday after President Zelensky's visit to the capital of Ottawa, when Canadian lawmakers also honored Yaroslav Hunka, a 98 -year -old Ukrainian immigrant who fought for the 1st Ukrainian Division, according to the Toronto Star, the division also known as the Waffen -SS Galicia Division, which fought for the Nazis and its paramilitary arm. The Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center said in a statement, the fact that a veteran who served in a Nazi military unit was invited to... And by the way, this story that I'm starting with, this day, this first hour, this story is not because of today being the Jewish Day of Atonement. This is outrageous. This is when it happened is when it happened. Understand that. The fact that it is occurring, though that we're talking about this and it just happened during these holy days, is another point entirely. The fact that a veteran who served in a Nazi military unit was invited to and given a standing ovation in Parliament is shocking. At a time of rising anti -Semitism and Holocaust distortion, it's incredibly disturbing to see Canada's Parliament rise to applaud an individual who was a member of a unit in the Waffen -SS, a Nazi military branch responsible for the murder of Jews and others, and that was declared a criminal organization during the Nuremberg Trials. Some are calling for full -throated apologies from Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau and from Ukrainian President Zelensky. This honor was given to a Ukrainian because everything now has to go Ukraine's way, because Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine. We have to come up with untold, unlimited amounts of treasure and time for anything having to do with Ukraine. So they brought a Nazi military fighter, 98 -year -old Nazi fighter in World War II before the Canadian Parliament, and because he's Ukrainian, he got a standing ovation. That's how, beside ourselves, I think we've become with this, we have to do anything and everything we can to help Ukraine. So that's number one. The second reason, by the way, is we continue to try to make some sense out of the, you know, now that we have the actual official figures confirmed by the White House of $113 billion already spent in support of Ukraine. In addition to that, they say that our commitment to helping Ukraine has no end and there is no cost limit. They will do this no matter what the cost for however long it takes. The problem is, of course, there is no end game in sight. There's no end to the commitment that has been identified. When does it end? What standard would it be to say no matter how long it takes to finish the thought? Chuck Schumer? Joe Biden? Mitch McConnell? I don't care if you're Democrat or Republican. If you are giving an unended blank check, an unending blank check to Ukraine, what does that mean? What does that look like? You say for as long as it takes to... fill in the blank. What? Does every Russian in Ukraine have to retreat back across the border or is that not enough? Does every Russian have to leave Crimea, the peninsula that Russia took in 2014 when Obama was president? Or do they just have to stop bombing and stop the fighting? What exactly does it mean to say we're going to give this money until... or I'm sorry, no matter how long it takes to do what? Define the end game. There isn't one.
A highlight from Could Oil and a Gov't Shutdown Screw Up Powell's Plans?
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Friday, September 22nd, and today we are talking oil, macro, everything that could throw the economy off. But before we get to that, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link at the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. All right, friends, well, we are sort of continuing the macro story today that we picked up around Powell and the FOMC this week. And one of the questions that Powell was asked was about risks that threatened to knock the economy off course. Two that he mentioned that we're going to spend a little time on today include oil prices and a potential government shutdown. Let's start with oil first. The price of crude oil has steadily increased over the past four months. From a low of around $70 in June, oil reached almost $90 a barrel for the US -based WTI benchmark contract and $95 per barrel and $95 per barrel for international Brent crude earlier this week. The price increase for crude has driven US gas prices back above $3 .80 per gallon, the highest level since last October. Overall, gas prices have ramped up by 20 % since the beginning of the year, according to AAA. Now, there are a number of factors all contributing to steadily increasing oil prices since the June lows. The first is OPEC+. The economic group of oil producing nations led by Saudi Arabia and Russia have recently curbed output. Production cuts, which were agreed to late last year, have been gradually implemented over the past six months. In July, Saudi Arabia voluntarily cut an additional 1 million barrels per day from its production quota, about 10 % of its previous output. Existing production cuts across OPEC have already been extended into next year and analysts expect Saudi Arabia to extend their voluntary cuts until March. On Thursday, Russia further constrained supply by banning the export of diesel and petrol. Russia is one of the world's largest suppliers of diesel alongside their status as producing around 12 % of the global supply of crude oil. The International Energy Agency said last year that Russian refineries produce, quote, roughly double the diesel needed to satisfy domestic demand and typically export half their annual production. Analyst opinions focused on the simplest explanation for the ban, retaliation for sanctions. Henning Gloestien of the Eurasia Group said, Russia wants to inflict pain on Europe and the U .S. and it looks like they're now repeating the playbook from gas and the oil market ahead of the winter months. They're showing that they're not finished using their power over energy markets. The Kremlin said the ban was temporary and aimed at addressing rising energy prices in domestic markets. However, they gave no timeline on when the ban might be lifted. U .S. and European policymakers have largely banned the importation of Russian refined fuel since February, which has required Russian supply to be routed through third party regions including Turkey, North Africa and Latin America. Now, OPEC cuts over the past year were predicated on a weakening demand profile heading into this year. At the time they were announced, recessions were expected across Europe and the U .S. China was an open question with the potential of reopening pushed back in the midst of additional pandemic waves. But since then, the European economy is sputtering along, albeit with dismal manufacturing data out of Germany. The sanctioning of Russian supply has caused European demand to be displaced to other regions with refining capacity, largely India and the Middle East. In the U .S., recession has been continuously pushed off into the future and oil demand is now back at all time highs with no signs of slowing. Although the Chinese economy has hit some turbulence recently, oil demand remains robust. Analysts expect China's oil demand to remain high as Beijing secures strategically important resources. What's more, analysts expect China's oil demand to remain high as Beijing secures strategically important resources in part to mitigate geopolitical risks as well as to shore up its manufacturing and transportation industries. So with oil prices spiking, many are wondering whether the White House will once again intervene in markets using the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Between November 2021 and September of last year, the White House authorized a number of SPR releases. The final policy saw one million barrels per day provided into the market over six months. A small amount of oil was restocked earlier this year, but the SPR still sits at a little over half its pre -pandemic level. Earlier this week, a headline circulated proclaiming that quote, Biden says depleting SPR is on the table. This was later found to be a hoax with no legitimate source, but it demonstrates how difficult high oil prices could be for the U .S. economy heading into election season. To wit, many saw the SPR release as a political decision rather than an economic decision heading into the 2022 midterms. In the private sector, U .S. oil inventories have recently hit 40 -year lows of 46 -day supply, well below the longer -term average of 65 days. And while August's inflation reports already showed a small uptick due to oil -related prices, the effect is expected to be more profound across this month. Dario Perkins, an economist at T .S. Lombard said, That said, it is important to keep these recent inflationary developments in context. We are not yet in danger of undoing 12 months of solid disinflationary progress, not even close. Others suggested that high oil prices would have a greater impact on growth rather than inflation. Maya Bhandari, head of multi -asset at BNP Paribas Asset Management said, It really impacts the growth side of the Goldilocks equation rather than the inflation side of things over the long term. Theory is that sustained high oil prices begin to eat into disposable income for households alongside higher costs of production for manufacturing and logistics. These combine to reduce growth and potentially tip the economy into recession. Overall, this situation in the oil markets has, to some, many parallels to the liquid natural gas spike in the winter of 2022. Prices in some markets rose more than tenfold, European energy companies scrambled to secure supply at any cost, and multiple firms went bankrupt due to the volatility in markets. This week, Bloomberg reported that the trading arm of French supplier Total Energies has played a major role in bidding up the price of U .S.-based oil. Their source claimed that the firm is paying a premium for physical U .S. barrels, pushing the spread against futures to levels not seen since last November. With all of that said, there are some signs that the oil market is beginning to cool off. On Thursday, Brent crude futures fell to $92 per barrel, which represented the third straight day of price declines, which is the longest streak in almost a month. Warren Patterson, head of Commodity Strategy at ING, said the Fed's hawkish messaging has quote, put some pressure on risk assets, including oil. The dollar index has risen by 0 .8 % since Chair Powell left the podium, a large enough move to weigh on asset markets. Patterson said he still expects Brent crude to move above the $100 mark in the near term, but that he doesn't anticipate the move will be sustainable. So that is the view on oil overall. The thing that I am definitely going to be watching more than anything else is the political dimension of this. We are now entering the period where everything, even more than usual, is going to be completely wrapped up in what it means for the election season. If prices at the pump keep trending up, it seems very likely that the Biden administration will be willing to do what it takes, including SPR releases, to get those prices down. But that's just something we're going to have to keep an eye on. Now what about that other factor that Powell mentioned? Well yes, indeed, my friends, the US government is once again hurtling towards a shutdown after efforts to pass a short term spending bill were scuttled on the House floor on Thursday. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy attempted to marshal Republicans to vote through a package to keep the government funded past the end of September. Closed door negotiations continued late into Wednesday night, but were apparently unconvincing. The bill currently being considered is the $886 billion Defense Appropriations Act. The bill was stifled in the House after five GOP representatives refused to allow debate to begin by voting against a preliminary procedural rule. Democrats also voted against the measure and appeared to taunt Republicans apparently reveling in seeing the GOP's slim majority descend into chaos. Among the Republican dissenters was Marjorie Taylor Greene, who opposed the inclusion of $300 million in funding to the Ukrainian war effort. On Thursday, Politico reported that Pentagon sources have said Ukrainian operations have been exempted from any shutdown, making that part of the dispute rather moot. McCarthy sent House members home on Thursday night to return to Washington on Tuesday. He told reporters after the failed vote, quote, two people flipped, so I got to figure out how to fix that. That wasn't the impression they had given us. Now, this was McCarthy's third attempt at bringing the bill to the House floor. The current proposal on the table is a 31 -day stopgap funding mechanism to forestall a shutdown to begin next weekend. McCarthy remarked on the change in tone in Congress among that extreme element of the Republican Party, stating that, quote, this is a whole new concept of individuals that just want to burn the whole place down. Now, even if a 31 -day stopgap is passed in the House, it seems unlikely to make its way through the Democrat -controlled Senate. The bill includes a 30 percent temporary cut to domestic agencies and immigration law changes, neither of which are likely to get the seal of approval from Dems. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said instead of decreasing the chance of a shutdown, Speaker McCarthy is actually increasing it by wasting time on extremist proposals that cannot become law in the Senate. House Democrat leader Hakeem Jeffries remarked that the situation was playing out as a, quote, Republican civil war. Now, if it comes to pass, this would be the 11th government shutdown since 1980. The logic is that hard -line positions that don't enjoy support in the Congress can be put directly to the American people by shutting down the government and drawing attention to the impasse. Republican Ralph Norman said last week that, quote, we're going to have a shutdown. We believe in what we're doing. The jury will be the country. Still, the record on government shutdowns doesn't really support that strategy. Not one of the 10 previous shutdowns resulted in the dissenting group extracting concessions. Typically, the American people quickly turn on the party they view as blocking access to government services over a petty squabble. Alex Conant, a Republican strategist, said, This is such a dumb fight because there's no principle that we're standing on here. It's just bad tactics. While the dispute is nominally over excessive government spending, with Republican dissenters pushing for funding to be reduced back to 2022 levels, the underlying problem is, of course, the level of discord within the Republican Party. McCarthy was voted in as House Speaker after a record 15 attempts. The process took four days and frequently descended into a farce. This was only the second time in the post -Civil War era that a House Speaker had failed to be elected on the first attempt. Conant noted the terrible optics of a government shutdown of the Republicans' own making heading into election season, stating that, quote, Biden didn't win because of his political skills and soaring oratory. He won because Republicans blew themselves up with Trump. I'm afraid we're seeing history repeat itself, with the GOP once again helping Biden by shooting themselves in the foot. Of course, never one to shy away from controversy, Trump fanned the flames on Wednesday, posting that, quote, Republicans in Congress can and must defund all aspects of Crooked Joe Biden's weaponized government that refuses to close the border and treats half the country as enemies of the state. He added that, quote, This is also the last chance to defund these political prosecutions against me and other patriots. They failed on the debt limit they must not fail now. Use the power of the person to defend the country. Now, zooming out and trying to get away from the politics of the situation, which obviously is not the focus of this show. The reason that this was brought up at last week's FOMC press conference is that a government shutdown would halt the publication of government data. This would include employment, inflation and growth statistics, which are currently playing a key role in guiding Fed policy. Now, given how much the Fed has said over and over again, their policy is going to be driven by data, presumably not having access to that data would be a fairly big deal. Yet in spite of that, Powell tried to put on a brave face, saying, If there is a government shutdown and it lasts through the next meeting, then it's possible we wouldn't be getting some of the data that we would ordinarily get and we would just have to deal with that. Now, by way of some history, the longest ever government shutdown lasted 35 days. The dispute was around funding for the border wall and quickly turned public sentiment against the Trump administration. Republicans controlled both the House and the Senate, but the administration failed to convince their own party to fund the wall. At the time, Democrat Senator Jon Tester called it the most stupid shutdown I have ever seen in my life. However, if this week's display is anything to go by, that 2019 shutdown could soon have some competition for that title. Now, what does this all have to do with the crypto sphere? Well, I think in many ways these are just exemplary of the state of politics in general. And given that, perhaps it's not surprising that former Senator Pat Toomey is not optimistic about the chances of crypto legislation being passed during this Congress. Just prior to retiring from Congress at the beginning of the year, Toomey introduced his own crypto bill, which focused on stablecoin regulations. Now, the House currently has two major crypto bills eligible to be brought for a vote. One would establish a stablecoin framework while the other introduces more broad crypto regulations. While speaking at a Georgetown Law Seminar on Thursday, however, Toomey said, I don't see a path forward in the Senate regardless of how the vote goes in the House. He added that of the two, he sees the stablecoin legislation as having the best shot. The sticking point will likely be Senate Banking Committee Chairman Sherrod Brown. While Brown has been outspoken about the risks of crypto and the need to bring the industry to heel, he has so far remained extremely quiet on exactly what form of legislation would meet his approval. And of course, any crypto legislation would need the support of Democratic senators to pass a vote to become law. Still, during an interview on Thursday, Coinbase Chief Policy Officer Faryar Shirzad said that she thinks that Brown's lack of commitment to a legislative position might actually be a good thing. Shirzad said, Now, last week, Brown wrote a letter to head regulators at multiple agencies urging them to use their existing powers to crack down on non -compliant crypto firms. This of course seems to be the clear intention, at least at the SEC. On Tuesday, the head of that agency's crypto assets and cyber unit, David Hirsch, warned that more enforcement actions would be coming against crypto intermediaries, including DeFi protocols. Still, Toomey, who serves now as an advisor to Coinbase, views stablecoin legislation as the solvable problem. At the moment, Democrats are pushing for the Fed to serve a central role in regulating issuers rather than granting oversight power to state regulators. This preference is believed to be driven by the White House. Toomey said, He thinks that senior Democrats will get on board once the White House is satisfied with the stablecoin proposal. Although that proposal might have to wait until after the election, as Toomey said in the next Congress, I think it's quite possible to get something done.
Rep. McCarthy Frustrated After GOP Hardliners Push for a Shutdown
"A significant increase in securing the southern border and the northern border. And you turn that down, when 214 of your colleagues, including the vast majority, overwhelming majority conservatives, including the Freedom Caucus, are all in? What's your game None. plan? You don't shut down the government with no game plan. Because you know what happens then? Somebody else comes up with a game plan. Like the in Democrats the House, yanking a few of these Republican reprobates over and getting their budget passed. And you already have McConnell and the majority Republican senators who have sold out to Schumer and Biden. So you don't shut down the government. So, when you have this tiny majority and you have a plan that's put forth that slashes the government at the domestic level bigger than any plan that I've ever seen anybody from and seeks to secure the southern border, why would you throw that away? And if the Senate isn't going to support and fight over that, then you have something concrete, something tangible to fight over. and spending major steps towards the securing the border, defending the military spending, defending that's a winner to me as a conservative.
A highlight from Larry Taunton
"Folks, welcome to the Eric Metaxas show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit legacy PM investments dot com. That's legacy PM investments dot com. Hey, you have you checked your bucket list lately? Are you ready to take care of item number seven? Listening to the Eric Metaxas show? Well, welcome. Tune in and then move on to item number eight. Skydiving with Chuck Schumer and AOC. Here now is Mr. Completed my bucket list at age 12. Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks, welcome to the program. Today is Tuesday, September 19th. Exciting stuff. First of all, in a moment, we're going to talk about John Fetterman's clothing choices and how the world is going to hell at the speed of light. That's number one. Number two, we're going to talk to our friend Larry Taunton about everything else in the world and how things are going to hell at the speed of light. Larry Taunton, of course, dear friend. So he's my guest in our one in our two. We talked to another friend, Rosaria Butterfield. She has a book out. I have a copy here. Five lies of our anti -Christian age. She is amazing. We're going to have an hour with her today. That's our two. And then I'm going to get another hour with her, which will play another time because she's just extraordinary. So lots more to say on many other subjects. Tonight, we have a special Socrates in the city patrons dinner here in New York City. I want to talk about that another time. We're launching some very exciting Socrates initiatives, brand new, exciting. But so that's that's the setup. But we have our fashion expert, O .W. Root. He's a fashion blogger, culture critic. O .W. Root, welcome back. Thanks for having me. OK, what do we make of the unbelievably slovenly John Fetterman, who is somehow a United States senator dressing the way he does and not just that, but the headline is somehow maybe you know more about this than I do. The Senate, in a nod to the devil in hell, has said we're going to relax our clothing standards and we're going to let you wear a hoodie in the Senate. It's like we're making this up. What do you think of the situation? There's two things that come to mind when I think about this. First is the unbelievable hubris that exists in Fetterman. I mean, think of the hubris that it takes to serve as a senator in the United States of America, the most powerful empire on Earth, and essentially refuse to meet the basic standards of decorum and then force essentially a tyranny of the unreasonable, force them to relax their standards just for you. Think of the level of selfish hubris that exists there. And next, when we see this, it is a physical representation of the degeneration that we see everywhere. Our clothes reflect civilization and they reflect the health of our civilization. What the does clothing of John Fetterman again? Not some random guy on the street. He's a senator, United States of America, most powerful empire on Earth. And this is what he wears. And this is what they have changed the rules to allow. It is a sign of degeneration. Do we know why they changed the rules? I mean, the whole thing, I guess I haven't looked into it. So I'm not I'm not really clear on why they did that. Well, I know this. I believe that there is a rule that you can't vote unless you are wearing a suit. And he would vote from the corridor or something. Yeah, believe it or not. So he would sort of stick his head in and vote. So this is something like a high schooler. This was something a high schooler would do. You know, someone is like, I'm here, I'm here for class. Right now. And maybe they changed it for that reason. Maybe this reflects a bigger trend, honestly, toward the generation and collapse, because you've seen the adoption of tennis shoes. You've seen some of these senators that are pushing for sneakers to be allowed. Have you I don't know if you've seen these news articles, but there are more senators and politicians who are they've had these articles written about how great sneakers are and how we need to bring them into. The government. Yeah, yeah. I'm sure George Washington, if he could have would have worn would have worn sneakers, it's obvious that he would have worn red, you know, high tops, canvas high tops. No. Now, what's interesting to me about this? And by the way, people want to find you. They can go to necktie salvage dot com o w route at necktie salvage dot com. But we're talking about bigger issues, obviously. It's not about what one wears as much as what does it mean? What is what does it mean when a building is ugly? You know, is that just a architecture thing or does it touch the soul one way or the other? You could talk about brutalist architecture and how it seems to make us feel small and insignificant. There's other architecture. You look at it. It ennobles you. It inspires you. It's beautiful. Clothing is the is the same thing. And we talked about this last time you were on that, you know, since the 60s, there's been this it's almost like this kind of false egalitarianism, this idea that, oh, we don't want to make people feel bad who can't afford to dress well. So we're all going to dress like bums in solidarity with them. Now, the irony is that if you look at pictures from the past, every poor person, you see pictures in Harlem. Everybody is wearing a coat and tie, has tremendous dignity and took pride somehow in looking dignified and adult. And that's really what is happening to me. It's always it's a biblical issue in the sense that, you know, the head becomes the tail, the tail becomes the head. You no longer have this this order. In a sense, you have to say like, oh, we want adults to dress like kids because Federman, he's just like a sloppy kid. I mean, kids wouldn't dress like that years ago. But the point is that now it's like, I don't know, he has so much money and has so much white guilt that he wants to dress like what in his mind somebody would wear, you know, in the inner city. I don't know what's going on there, but it's something to do with that. We want to show solidarity with those who don't, you know, have the ability to. In other words, it's it's not logical, but that seems to be what's behind it. Absolutely. And this it reminds you of. Let's bring it back to those pictures you mentioned. You go back to the 30s, 20s, 40s. You could be destitute and you are you see guys wearing a coat tie. And there is a sense of ascendant dignity there. It's lifting up the impoverished, lifting up the common man because clothes represent him in a higher image. So what does it mean now in our decadence and in John Fetterman's decadence in our? We have so much money, he has so much money, and so he chooses to go down, he chooses to bring it down. Like you said, this false egalitarianism and go down and down. And it's not a shock that when you see those old photos, when things were really tough, times were tough, times were hard. But there was this need to reaffirm one's dignity through the difficulties. But for John Fetterman, there are no difficulties. In fact, he has made he's essentially forced the Senate to compromise to him. And so he has no difficulties. And so he doesn't need to reaffirm any dignity because he can dress like child. a And again, my son doesn't even dress like that. My son doesn't wear hoodies. My son doesn't wear a graphic T -shirts he wears. If I had a son who dressed like that, I'd put a beating on him. No, it's kind of it's kind of interesting. It's very interesting. It's a larger conversation. We don't have time right now, but we have to have it. But because I know that there are probably many men listening to this program right now who say, well, you know, Eric O .W., I don't know, I don't know. I don't like to I don't like to get dressed up. I don't like to I get that. Now, there's there's a there's another conversation there about the whole thing, because I really think what's happened is this used to be so normal that you didn't really have to think about it. Everybody had a certain kind of clothing. You just put it on like a uniform. You didn't have to think of it. I kind of have that. You know, I kind of a couple of jackets. It's not like I got to go, oh, what am I going to do? What? And I think that's part of what's happened is that we have we we no longer know how to dress. We don't know what is the formula. What is the it used to be a basic thing. Kids, young boys would wear shorts, not long pants. At a certain age, you dress like a man. You'd wear long pants and a coat and tie. Kind of a basic thing. Policemen wear a uniform. A nurse would wear uniform, doctor or uniform, white, whatever. All of that stuff was part of the culture. It's gone out of the culture. And now we're sort of confused. And so a lot of people in their confusion, they throw up their hands, they put on a hoodie and they vote in the Senate. We're at a time. Oh, W. Root, thanks for coming on necktie salvage dot com. Coming up, Larry Taunton. And after that, Rosaria Butterfield, folks, don't go away.

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust. Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is one of my favorite senators and just a terrific guy. Senator Lee Mike joins us. Senator, thank you for taking the time. Senator, you have a very powerful thread on Twitter that I want to speak with you about. You have this idea of the law firm Schumer McConnell McCarthy and Jeffries, the firm as you call it, that does deals in the the middle of the night and back room deals. Walk us through all this, Senator. I think it's fascinating and very important. Senator Mike Lee. Yeah, thanks for inviting me to talk about it. This is a thread that I posted on the Twitter presence that I use for my own personal musings is my at -based Mike Lee account and on that I explained how this four -person cabal within Congress, what I call up the law firm of Schumer McConnell McCarthy and Jeffries, comes together and whichever four fit in those positions, the top Republican and Democrat from the House and in the Senate, over the last decade or so they've gotten more and more powerful and they've taken it upon themselves very often to be intimately involved in the drafting of spending bills. In many cases consolidating all spending bills, there's supposed to be 12 separate bills each running a different part of government, these guys will put one together. We call that an omnibus and very often the omnibus or whatever bill they're putting together will be held back into the last possible moment until a couple of days and sometimes only hours before government funding is about to run out. Then they bring it forward to their respective caucuses, House, Senate, Republican, Democrat and say here you go, here's the bill, it's ready to go. We unfortunately don't have much time to read it, we unfortunately don't have really any time to debate it, we have almost no time left to amend it, so you basically have to take it as is and vote yes or you can vote no, but if you vote no you'll be blamed for a shutdown and we'll make sure of it. So most members vote for it. It usually has the nasty effect of unifying Democrats, nearly all Democrats jump on board because it almost always spends more money than it did last year and it peels off just enough Republicans to get it to pass and so this is how we end up 33 trillion dollars in debt. This is how it happens because of the action of the law firm and the unflinching response of far too many Republicans to say yeah I'll jump on board with that even though we're unifying Democrats, pursuing Democratic priorities for the most part and we're sharply dividing Republicans. So let's tie this into the 930 fight and you're right, what they do is they kind of hold these votes hostage that have some necessary components, funding the military, things of that nature, and then they just always you know they always will say well you know it's the lesser of two evils, we want to keep the government open. So tie this into the 930 funding fight and specifically the timing and the sequence of this omnibus as you write quote was carefully orchestrated by the firm but ensures that it will pass without any substantive changes once it becomes public and the very few elected federal lawmakers will have meaningful input in this highly secretive process. This is so dysfunctional, Senator. Walk us through how this is going to unfold in the next couple of weeks.

Harold Ford, Greg Gutfeld Exchange Heated Remarks Over Trump
"Over social So he's welcome on the show. But Harold tries to make the point to Greg. And this is very dangerous, ladies and gentlemen. And when moderate Democrats start saying this, this is why Newt Gingrich's warning before is so perilous. When moderate Democrats start saying things like, well, you know, listen, this stuff against Trump may not all on be the up and up, but don't you think he did something and he deserves it? Ladies and really dangerous territory. You're going to hear Greg first because Greg was really upset about it, then you'll hear Harold jump in. Jim, you beat this, right? Because it was like, OK, just check it. All right. Check this out. I think is this totally over the top as a jet for I mean, even when you face makes sense, except it's all bullshit. It's all nonstop. We know this is designed to banish and isolate and to destroy a political outsider who predicted this. Chuck Schumer, remember, said, don't mess with the Intel agencies. Right. Don't mess with the Intel agencies. They'll arrest your team and keep it off the field. But do you not think he's done anything to deserve any of this? He is probably one of the most troubling consequential figures in history. But no, he doesn't deserve any of this. Man, I got to tell you, I was really taken aback.

It makes me happy and makes me want to cry at the same time because our summers are just way too short here. I just feel like the Erie County Fair sort of marks one of those spots. Like, yeah, the good weather's been here, but the bad weather's coming. I am going to the demo derby this Sunday. I haven't done that in years. Actually, my buddy Tim, we put a car in years ago. He drove it. It was unbelievable. Not that these aren't men driving them now, because I think I'm going to put one together next year, but those cars were like, you know, 4 ,000 pound station wagons. The old school automobiles, the big old boats. Oh yeah, that's what we put. No, we put a Caprice in. And the car got so smashed up that you could actually, it looked like Pac -Man in the back. The back of the car got sliced open and you could see right through it. Wow, that's crazy. Yeah, now they do it with like a Prius and it lasts, what, four minutes? It's over in like three minutes? That's it? No, they go because all these guys have learned very strategic ways to sort of make the car go longer. So welding certain things underneath and all that, but it's not like the old school. You talk about, you know, smashing a Cadillac versus a station wagon, you know. Right, right, right. But all good, all good. So, where do we want to start today? Let's start with this video. Let's start with the video, yeah. Yeah, this is good. I mean, this is becoming, it's pretty obvious now. We're going to talk, I've got some, oh, I left my pad in the other room. Indictments, Poland cars, a couple different things. But I want to start with this, because this is a great video. This is Matt Kim, I don't know this kid, I've got to make sure I follow him here. He's a podcaster, I guess, but man, he just nails it. This is what these latest indictments out of Georgia, I think this guy pretty much calls it, this is out of control. This is no longer a left versus right, folks. We have to begin to realize this. This is no longer a, you know, Democrat versus Republican. This is becoming a us versus them. And I mean us being the free peoples of the world versus the global elitist who don't have our best interests at heart. You've got people like John Kerry out there talking about, well, we just have to eliminate the farms if we're going to get anywhere with global warming. This is the same guy as the polar ice caps we've gone in five years, 20 years ago. We have to eliminate the food or else people are going to die. Well, that's the point, by the way. If you looked at actually some of their data, so Al Gore's book was true, right? If we could go back through Al's book and say, hey, look, Al was 70 % right, he was 0 % right. Zero. There isn't anything that's in that book that was correct, right? Nothing. Nothing. Not a thing. Yeah, he didn't get anything right. It's not like he was like, wow, he was half off. Nothing. You can go back 40 years. Every single prediction. In the 70s it was a global ice age. Global freezing. Freezing. It was we're all going to die and we can play the videos of that. In the 80s it was acid rain and we were all going to die. And now in the 90s they moved to global warming and we're all going to die unless you give us all of your money right now. And it's an emergency. Always an emergency. And there's always a deadline. We got eight days. We got eight years. We got six months. And none of the money ever goes to specific projects to actually help the environment. The number one thing we could do is plant trees. And this would be a very easy solution. All you need to do is give people a tax break to plant trees. There'd be trees everywhere. That's all. That's all you need to do. Hey, look, we're going to allow you, if you buy up to five trees a year, we're going to allow them, you can deduct that 100 % from ordinary income. And if you're a corporation, we'll let you do whatever, 500 trees or something like that. Done. Done. There'd be trees everywhere. Wow. We don't have the money for the trees, Mike, because we have to pay the bureaucrats. See, we have to have the people who administer. If we just had more money, you know, because after we're done with, and you know, and there's a Rochester program that they just talked about, you know, we'll get to that too maybe later in the show where they talked about, well, eight years in and you know, they're still fighting poverty. Well, wouldn't you know it? Wouldn't you know it? All the money of these, of all these, you know, do good types of organizations, a lot of the time go to 99 .999 % salaries, salaries of the bureaucrats. How about this? Take a wild guess at Al Gore's not worth. No, you've got Chuckie, Chuckie Schumer, 200, 200 low. No, I'm low. 300 by now. 300, 300. Wow. 300 million. 300 million. Do you know how many trees we could plant with $300 million? I actually think he could live and his wife could live really, really well on what, 10 million? 10 million? $290 million worth of trees. That fixes a lot of communities. It fixes a lot of global warming problems, I think. They are such bullshit. It's not even funny. And what's the shame of it is shame on you Democrats that sit there and watch this crap. Right. Many republicans.
"schumer" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Lot of hopes for it. But it's unclear whether there are 60 votes for the Senate are not. And Chuck Schumer, who is responsible for deciding whether it gets about had said not that long ago that he didn't necessarily think it had the 60 votes. And I believe he doesn't really want to introduce it on the floor unless he thinks it will pass. But what we've heard is that he's promised to vote in the fall. We'll see what happens. I'm still really skeptical about it because we do know there are some senators that have objected to the fact that they believe the way it's written will hinder some of the content moderation that these companies do now and that it's going to proliferate the hateful speech and misinformation and damaging language will proliferate because they'll be afraid of lawsuits over discrimination if they do take this kind of content down or ban certain users. So they'd like some changes. But those changes are a bit of a nonstarter for the GOP members that support it. So I think that could be one of the stumbling blocks. We'll have to see what happens in the fall. If and when it does get a vote. And now thanks to you, Jen. We are all up to date on what's happening in antitrust. Thanks so much.

"schumer" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Thank you. You have to wonder what senator Chuck Schumer is thinking right now. As he looks ahead to this weekend waiting for the parliamentarian to rule in a relatively short window of time left to work on the climate and tax bill having already learned and we talked about it at this time yesterday that senator kyrsten sinema does have some issues with the deal that Schumer struck with Joe Manchin wants to drop carried interest, for instance, wants to narrow the scope of the corporate minimum tax, but if you listen to Chuck Schumer on the floor of the Senate today, you wouldn't know about it. Democrats are going to deliver on all these things and more. When we pass the inflation reduction act in coming days. Humming days the same exact language that he used on the floor yesterday. So, is he whistling past the graveyard? Does he know something we don't know? We bring in Jim Kessler, cofounder of third way democratic strategist, former legislative policy director for senator Chuck Schumer, Jim. It's great to have you back. What's going on in the office? At this point here is you suspect Chuck Schumer directly involves with senator kyrsten sinema on changes that she wants to see, what's this conversation like? He's always directly involved in expect he's directly involved in this. Look, this was a competent Chuck Schumer who went to the floor and said, this is going to happen in the next few days. My guess is this time next week, a bill will be through the Senate. There are a couple of hurdles, some are procedural, the parliamentarian is looking at this bill, there's always things that don't pass but called the bird bath, some of the procedural rules with reconciliation, which means language will need to be tweaked. And then there is whatever demands that kyrsten sinema has and whether they can be accommodated with the best way they can be accommodated. But this feels like we're getting close. It feels like we're getting to the finish line. What does it make it out of the bird bath? And if it were in the bill now, would it include this drought protection money that cinemas asking for? Well, you know, the parliamentarian ultimately has the final call, but generally anything that is that is dealing with the revenue and deficit reductions in those sort of things can make it through the parliamentarian certain things that have to do with policy, but don't have a real revenue component. Sometimes get struck down. But there's always ways that you can craft the language to the parliamentarian says, well, it works this way. It doesn't work that way. What we don't know is what's going to happen with carried interest, which news reports say that kyrsten sinema would like to strip out. And there are some reports that some of the corporate tax piece, she doesn't like, but there's other reports that say that she's fine. And she's called the carried interest out. It doesn't really put that big of a dent in the Bill. Should Chuck Schumer be open to that? I mean, it is a very tiny amount. It's 14 $1 billion over ten years. It's about 2% of the size of the bill. It's one of those things that Democrats have been trying to do for a long, long, long, long time. It would be great if it could stay in there. It's not going to be the thing that sinks the bill or makes it swim. Okay, there you go. Why are you so confident this gets done next week? Is it because of how close they are, because, boy, this kind of feels familiar. It does feel familiar, but Joe Manchin was a huge hurdle. It got through that. The things that kyrsten sinema are raising really seem like mostly minor issues, particularly if it's just carried interest and she really does care about the climate pieces and the deficit reduction pieces. You know how Republicans are playing this as we're talking taxes is in terms of hikes. Joe Manchin keeps making the point there's no tax increases in the bill were simply closing tax loopholes, but this is how it's playing on the other side of the aisle. Mitch McConnell, on the floor today, not much later than Chuck Schumer was talking. They went around through. Giant new tax acts in the middle of the recession. New multi $100 tax acts on American jobs that especially target. The manufacturing sector. Leaving Americans with your jobs and lower wages. Jim, the whole deal is being framed as a win for Democrats a win for Joe Biden, something to crow about on the campaign trail, but how do you get around that narrative before November? You know, I think if Republicans were being really honest in the Senate, if it was a secret ballot, iPad, about 15 or 20 Republicans would vote for this bill. It really is closing a tax loophole in which very large corporations that report huge profits, but then for tax purposes, say they have virtually no profits, will actually be taxed on those profits. It is very minor in terms of the revenue increases in there. I think this is a little bit of the partisanship that you just see in Washington. So when you look back on this period of time, whether they get this done or not, and this would be a huge piece of legislation. Chuck Schumer looks back to November and he says, we got the gun safety Bill. We got the chips act passed. If the pack act passed and they got NATO done for Sweden and Finland yesterday, how does that compare in terms of productivity to a typical session? Well, and don't forget the bipartisan infrastructure Bill that passes. If you want to go back last year, sure. Yeah, so if you look at this entire Congress, I think this is the most consequential Congress for legislation since Ronald Reagan in his first term 1981 82. That's quite a statement. I mean, after build back better blew up. But in terms of actual pieces of legislation and in scope, can you compare? Is that what you're looking back to then? That's the best comparison. I mean, there's this is the infrastructure Bill was enormous. That this inflation reduction act is a very significant piece of legislation. Chips is major. The Russia sanctions legislation was major. The NATO expansion. If you add domestic and foreign policy together, really one of the most significant two year periods of the presidency since final Reagan. I mean, look, Barack Obama's first two years a lot happened George W. Bush's first two years a lot happening. And it will soon be to Joe Biden's first two years. Jim Kessler, third way we thank you so much for the insights. You know, you wonder how much could

"Yeah, like I need you to like. But let me make sure we both let go. It's like, okay, okay. Can you imagine thinking something is done and that you've dealt with it and you've moved on and you've overcome something and then 20 years later, someone who is not associated with you comes in and does this to you again? No, that's so, I mean, and then for like her son to find it just like on a Roblox. Right? Well, you know, this is the thing. First of all, I have some issues because why is it on a 6 year old like whatever a 6 year old is doing for that 6 year old to be able to find that. I have an issue with that. And I've always been saying social media, these platforms need to have more standards and practices. It was a game. It was a game. Exactly. That's what I'm saying. You know, so I have an issue with that because that is about age difference and stuff like that. Because her son should not have been able to see that. But we all know the rumor has always been that it hasn't been a second sex tape but yeah. Yeah, it's deleted footage reportedly. And I think that's what is kind of, I also find it interesting that she been out here for ten years on E and never revealed that. She went to do it on Hulu. You know what? A man. You know what? You take that up with Marty singer. You go ahead and kick that up for her lawyer, okay? You go ahead and hang that out with your lawyer. My whole thing is, yes, he was 6 years old. First of all, thank God that there's no other footage. Right. You know, her kid is 6, so he didn't really understand what was going on, but imagine that kid being 11 or 12, how would you explain to your child about this whole thing? What's she gonna have to figure it out? Because they're getting old. And this is what happens when you do things like this in the past. But remember when Kanye tried to get the laptop back? Get the laptop back and he Tanya be telling it all. So y'all think Kanye relying, Kanye? Tell me the truth. If you're telling it all, and then it comes back and then it comes out. At first we were like, he making up stuff. Now you see it on Hulu that he was actually trying to help and save her. And I got to give it up to Kanye today. Let's try it. I have to figure out a way to tell all their kids, look, this is what happened. This was a situation, and just explain it, 'cause it's gonna come up. And also, let's give it up for Kim's CPA because she's working overtime. And when you have that kind of money, it's hard to scrub things from the Internet. Sure. You can. With the right amount of cash, you can. There is a celebrity sex tape that has been in the ether since the 80s. I'm not gonna say whose it is. Yours? No. My good that came out until 2007 when I was hurting. But there's a celebrity sex tape that's been either, and if you look for it, you can not find it anywhere. This person has slowly and meticulously combed the Internet and has gotten it taken off and it's very hard to find. So I think at some point, before her kids get old enough, she's gonna say I've made $4 billion from kkw beauty. Let's get a million to wipe this thing off. You know, I've never wanted to record myself having sex ever. Oh, no. No. But this is what makes me tune that. This is what made her a star. I mean, there's some things that it's a whole movie. You could say it's a home movie. This is what launched my career. It leaked out there. Tell the truth. Stop trying to, you know, because everybody's got it. Everybody knows about it. I think she's proud of that. She's talked about it. Exactly. You roll with her kids. So I'm saying tell it to her children. You asked me a question. You said, what to say to your children? They're 6 and 8. They get older as they get older. Add that in. As they get older, at that party, but my thing is you can actually go to these companies, whatever this game is, and why is it that a 6 year old is seeing something like this? That you can question that, you can put your CPA or whoever you want to put on. All right. I'm a put time on it. I don't know if you guys heard this, but Will Smith slap Chris Rock at the Oscars? I don't know if you guys know that. I didn't run? Yeah. I'm learning about it here. In a now deleted Instagram post, the more you know, hosts Amy Schumer said she was triggered and traumatized by the incident and she doesn't think she's the only one. But listen to what she just admitted on the Howard Stern show. The whole slapping. Do you play it over in your head and go? If I had it to do over again, I marched out and thrown Will Smith right the out of that building. I mean, I don't know what I would have done if the power were in my hands. It was so it was so upsetting. And people made fun of me for saying that it was traumatizing. But I don't think it was traumatizing for me. I think it was traumatizing for all of us. Chris Rock's my good friend. One of my best Friends. Also Will Smith, who I've loved, and we've all loved forever. I don't remember a time I didn't think I love that guy. And you know, and I haven't been around much violence. You know, I didn't grow up within the home or anything. So it was upsetting for so many reasons. And it was saying to everyone, everyone at home who didn't even see what I saw. It was shocking. And it was a bummer. It's upsetting me and my home girl 'cause we like damn. If we can't go to the Oscars, where the hell can we go? Really? Yeah. Let me take this. Let me tell you this. This is how I explained it to my friend. Yeah. He's weighing it. Listen to how I explain it to my friend. What? If you go to a wedding and you're a guest at the wedding, and a slap breaks out in the middle of the dance floor while you're doing the funky chicken or the electric slide, you're like, that was exciting as a guest. Right. Now, if you're the bride and you have spent months getting ready for this, spent a lot of money on this, and this happens in front of you, your traumatized. I think that Amy Schumer was a bride in this scenario. It was her night. She was a host with two other people, and it happened in front of her. And yes, it could be traumatizing. The thing about Amy Schumer, and I'm sorry to say this, but it's hard to hear a white lady, you know, complain in 2022. You know, not for me. I can listen to a white way to complain to the sun comes up. Okay, I love a white beauty complaining. I love rich people problems. That's why I'm here. Like, lady complaining. But I think America. And the Internet is like, uh, traumatized. We have Karen fatigue. That's what they're thinking. But I think she had the right to be traumatized. What are you talking? You know what? That wasn't even a fight. That was one of those theatrical slaps. I'm like, everybody act like it was a fallout bra. Like, this is Hollywood. Hollywood that has guns that has violence. Half of the people that was in there has been in a film where it's all out fight. And now everybody's acting like they see one slap and it's like the end of the where I thought maybe because I'm from Detroit. And I'm used to seeing. I think that's exactly what's going on right now. If I was a host, I would have got up out there, I'd be like, yeah, you called her. That's exactly what's going on. No, no, that's exactly what happened. Oh, you would have went out there, putting bets on people. It would have been a whole different type of show. If I was a host, but to say trauma to I'm sorry. Hold on, hold on. I'm sorry, Tom. Tom, if you were in a band with a lady and all of a sudden her wig fell off, it would traumatize. That's different. No, that's a look, but go ahead, Tom,.

Left was it biden schumer. I've been watching these two bozos this morning as they try to one and they said right right try. We only have a couple of years left. No one ever says a couple of years left for what until total earth like. What have you or spent here. What four and a half billion years. There's a great george collin rant And george collin was in many ways. I think it was not even a liberal. He was an anarchist. Aided government didn't like it serves a whole lot either but he has a great rant about how the planet is. Fine people are fucked thing about the planet has survived everything for billions of years and the people come along and say and he goes just tears apart the the environmentalist is way out of his time in every way. I was and how you think you know you get some housewife and some suburban soccer mom like in in wellesley and they sit there and say i gotta get an electric Volvo and save the planet and you say save it from what it's planet. It's not going anywhere you couldn't destroy the planet if you wanted to. You couldn't even if you set off every nuclear device in the world at the same time you know what happened. People would die. The planet would survive. It wasn't the idea that you hear from these these idiots including our president that if we don't do something i think it was said we had twelve years left in like a week later bernie. Sanders said we had eight. Okay ready second auction. He's got eight years said only a couple years left. I make sense but when you think about it you don't ever fear a serious follow up so bernie sanders. obviously ill. the media loves them and god they love greta bloomberg and llc and all the rest of these idiots they don't ever fear follow ups.

And you have a senator who says the time to spend three point five trillion or this will happen again. it's just so shallow and despicable. How can we all don't mock him. Yes you ask that question. A little bit ago. And i wanted to answer. I think number one because school taught us that we needed to respect politicians. And i think it's one of the most disrespectful Vocations you could possibly do personally. But that's why we look at the president and we're taught not to mock him and if that's changing it would be like say the terrorist attack boom killed fifty at a nightclub like pulse nightclub forty-nine people it'd be like standing there as they're pulling the bodies out and talking about you know you have to tighten the border most strict security or gun control which they do like that day.

They're given out in your opinion. But what if. I through those people in a room with truth and shot him up full of truth serum what is the real answer they did not call witnesses compared to what they're telling their constituents in that thank you. Yeah absolutely Okay so what. They're telling their constituents is that they needed to move on and that they decided that there was no way to persuade I think the real answer is that in part That yes they do want to move on and they would get bogged down and it would drag out i do think there's some legitimacy to that. But i actually think that the real answer is that if they had witnesses and the republicans were allowed to have witnesses well that it would become more complex that aid the the president clearly did in i listen i know some of you disagree with this but the president clearly did tell the crowd to march to the capitol. He did that in a speech. Those are his words to walk up to the capital. He wanted them in his speech to be peaceful but walk up to the capital. There is evidence that the cunanan browde boy people were planning this in advance and there would be tough questions for Whether or not the Whether or not the capitol police were told to down whether not members of the capitol police collaborated whether or not members of congress collaborated.

So why isn't that actually happening. Well cassidy it it. It simply has to. We have no choice. We're headed down a demographic cul de sac if we don't if you look at what's happened. Since president trump was elected we lost the white house. We lost the house. We lost the senate. We lost more than four hundred legislative seats nationwide. So there's really no future with trumpism so we've got to move on it's difficult because the Base is still there But we have to move on and then what if you don't what if it just is the trump. Well we'll just continue to lose. Seats will continue to be frankly and a permanent minority if we continue so we have to and we should want to as well. I mean look at what has happened since the last election. The president lost the election. Then used every lever at his disposal to hang onto that To hang onto the white house and we saw what resulted on january. Sixth notice his four hundred seats. That's a clever talking point from jeff flake. Charlie actually put it out to me this morning. Where is this coming from. And i have had to look and it appears that he is recounting four hundred seats lost in the last four years. Not in the last election in the last four years. Four hundred republican seats lost what. He's not counting then are the offsetting pickups this past year so he's not counting the republican gains in two thousand twenty some of which negated the losses in two thousand eighteen. I mean the republicans lost some seats in two thousand eighteen and picked them right back up and twenty twenty. So he's not doing that. And then there are the state. Legislative races The republicans Getting the minnesota state senate republicans securing the complete arizona legislature republicans. Picking up all of new hampshire. They wound up.

So these are things that definitely Schumer makhan on their way they're talking about. I would expect to see some sort of Agreement announced this week. Just be just by the virtue of the fact that the changes will start to take place. In terms of, um Democrats coming into the majority this week obviously crumble, Harris will become the benefits. The official president of the Senate and the Georgia and the Georgia started races will be certified later this week, which would allow which John office and failed. Warnock to be sworn in. So this is something that the Senate leaders or where they have to get get had to figure out pretty soon, but they are on track to be able to get that done. Now. The filibuster was on the radical list for extinction. I do not believe it's going anywhere, Do you Sung Min? It's hard to say I mean, Joe Manchin. I mean, you're gonna need the support of Joe Manchin to be able to get rid of the filibuster, and he has made it adamantly clear that, um, that the filibuster and his view is not going anywhere and we talk a lot about Joe Manchin and the influence that he's going to have. But there are a lot of other Democratic senators who are uncomfortable with the idea of getting rid of the legislative filibuster. Um, I would think obviously, she's a She's a quiet one. But I would point to cure that amount of Arizona as another one who's been skeptical of getting rid of the filibuster, John Custer of Montana. You're gonna happen. We're gonna have to wait and see just kind of how has this How? How it how you know what happens in the Senate that may prompt enough Democrats, including mansion. To support this. I mean, obviously, as you know, when Democrats went nuclear back in 2013 and got rid of the filibuster for nearly all nominations, they had pointed to the fact that Republicans Had filibuster key Obama nominees over and over and they felt like they had no choice but to get rid of the filibuster for nominations. Is there a similar kind of triggering event or triggering point for Democrats? Later this year. That's what we're gonna have to watch for, because I think Democrats know that if they just kind of try to get rid of the filibuster with no kind of was no kind of action event or whatsoever, they're not going to get a lot of support among their among even within their caucus for it, so we'll have to see if they feel like Republicans are blocking their major legislative priorities and blocking them unfairly. Then you could see the movement watching Angus King as well. And Maggie has and I just do not believe there is the filibuster is going anywhere. However, The key question is Mitch McConnell going to mere Chuck Schumer on nominees because Chuck Schumer slow walked every nominee after the first round of nominees. Including every judicial nominee, and then Mitch had to change the rules to confine time to that. Will that happen again? In terms of Republicans, you know, trying to drag out time to get nominees confirmed. I think it's in a mere what happened to Chuck Schumer check. Would Chuck Schumer did back in the early years of the Trump administration? I mean,.

"And now your host Jordan Secular. Oh, Just massive political hypocrisy on display in Washington, D. C. We pointed it out yesterday with playing that sound bite from Chuck Schumer when he was on the steps of the U. S. Supreme Court. Threatening Brett Kavanaugh. Neil Gorsuch saying You won't know that world wind is coming. You won't know what hit you Those air lifetime appointments s O. They're not like politicians like, Hey, we're going to run a campaign against you to beat you in the next election cycle. You can interpret that that way, because that's not what it is for lifetime appointments for judicial nominees. So I mean, you won't know what hit you sounds violent. Right? Did anyone think that the chief justice I think at the time did think that what Chuck Schumer did was inappropriate. And he said that but again, talk about separation of powers and attacking a separate Coequal branch of government and threatening them with violent words. Fighting words as as we would call it again was Chuck Schumer censured. In the Senate. Did anybody call for him to resign? Anybody call for him to the start the process in Congress to have him removed. They have their own process to do that. No. And what would have been appropriate. Now we played it as rhetoric as kind of ridiculous, absurd rhetoric, But I think maybe maybe we've gotten so used to being free speech advocates and now this new world where AOC wants to regulate the news. I mean, like, like Russia, like China. We're going to regulate the news. Rain in the news is what she said. This is this is dangerous folks, because if you want to, if you truly believe in free speech That doesn't mean you let anything goes, You know, one of the Supreme Court, Justice said. You famously. What's not allowed under this? He said. I can't write it down. But I can tell you when I see it was it was that was on pornography. No, no, It wasn't just that white. That was insanity. No cities on pornography, and I think it was Justice Douglas, she said. I don't know it. I cant write it in a phrase or a test. But you know it when you see it right, And that's about it when it comes to when it becomes too. Restrictions on what it when it's no longer speech that's protected by the First Amendment and it and it goes to another level. That's why broadcast stations have different standards and cable to standards. And that's why you know HBO Conair something different than Then what ABC could air and they get in trouble for you know what happens. It's Super Bowl halftime games. Things like halftime shows is those kind of rules, but we're very cautious about that. Very Cautious about Potter Stewart. By the way, Justice matter s so I think that what we have put together is of course we have Schumer, which I want you to see because for those you on Facebook on YouTube watching a rubble later in the day on periscope through Twitter. You've got to see his what He's also his face. And kind of the reaction. It's not just the words but also what he's putting out there and the people surrounding him to take a listen or or watch. I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Cavanaugh, you have released the world Wind.

"If assange released today he would fail to surrender to the court the face proceedings so even though there no pending charges against the songs in the united kingdom the fact that the united states wants to appeal the denial of extradition means a portless on. Just now i gotta stay locked in solitary confinement in belmarsh prison. You know we're supposed to get fair and speedy trials when we're charged with something And this one. I don't even know if we have the real authority to be doing this to assange. I don't think we do but it's not going to be speedy. That's one thing for sure. Nothing speedy about this and it's going to go on and on until he gets mentally ill with which would please them and they're already reaching. I think that's the poor man has suffered so much and you torture a person for this long. Something terrible does happen to it but you know morally speaking the people responsible for his well being you know Is guilty of a crime in moral sense the fact that they do this but so much of this goes on just think how much torture went on hospital when she was heading the cia unit tortured. And this is what some of these these whistleblowers by told us how terrible our government was treating prisoners. That never committed a crime against us and in a way this is sorta the trading assange way he didn't he didn't commit a crime against the united states. He added the crime of exposing the united states. I think the people who committed the crimes and wanted to cover up where the criminals and not the ones who say. Do you realize what the governor same thing with its snowden. He was saying oh yeah. They don't follow the rule. I know there are a lot of have. There are a lot of You know spy on some people but they spy on and he says they spy on every american anytime. They want which turned out to be true but he gets. He gets the punishment not to people who disobeyed the law So this this is this the thing that should be sorted out because the people who make the chargers who gets the spotlight Are are the ones that do in the name of of You know being popular you know. It's it's If you're patriotic if you agree with the and then you can't disagree You know. I i knew a little bit about that in the campaign that when i said some things that i thought you know were accurate and correct and challenging the government. Oh he's not patriotic person. You know this sort of thing so When they when they start saying that to somebody who's trying to tell us the truth we should wake up. Yeah well let's hope they get this. This appeal over quickly and give him the bail that he certainly deserves. Get some fresh air and visit with his kids We do want to move onto one of the things off to paul before we close out..

"I think i saw like seventeen percent of democrat voters believe there was fraud going on and also a big percentage of of independent voters for the question is. How do you square that circle. How do you govern a country where you have probably half the country least believing that you stole the election whether you did or even that assist. It's completely corrupt for a libertarian perspective. That's not necessarily be a fad thing because that's an open door for us to to lead with some solid policy ideas but it really is a big question dr to there. Being a couple of competing approaches a we tend to be of in favor of pharmacies approach and he had a group of behind him on. I want to go into the details. Of essentially what massey said is hey state legislatures do to the election of a president's through the electoral college Many of these contested states are republican legislatures if they bring in competing slates that is when congress gets involved in the process. It doesn't get involved in the process before that because thankfully david stockman wrote about this. Today we go have federal still elect presidents as individual states. So it is a mess. And i honestly don't know what the answer is. Well one one. Part of the answer is shrink. The size of our federal government probably by eighty percent and accept the notion which is a big if accept the notion that the federal government there is to protect individual liberty and not do anything else not make us safer for the say safe for the world and worldwide democracy and police the world and all these other things but right now. The role of government is accepted by republican democrat that we have to tell people how to live and buckle over and crawl mask even if it's not beneficial you know all this stuff They they've lost the desire to live as a free person but so far you. We don't have a whole lot of politicians telling it precisely what they want and what they need because of a heard about he said you know. I do want to be a free person. I like to spend my money the way i want. I like to have my personal habit. I like to practice my religion. I think it would be a good life. We brought our troops and this would be a good idea to be involved in all. These people always say positive things about that but it's so rarely offered to them. So that's the sad part. I wanna follow to daniel from the other day on Song you know and it looks like australia's getting involved. That's his home country and If if If the british art sending him sending him to to washington for a fair trial Now australia and say hey come back. come back. And you're our friend and we're gonna take to you. we'll show the world. We're civil libertarian. Do you think about to happen. We'll if i were assange knowing how the australian government behaves as a lot of washington. I wouldn't be packing my bags quite yet and in fact unfortunately the news. We have to report today in some people. I'm sure have seen it. Is that the same to a couple of days ago. We talked about it on the show. denied the extradition of a song to the eastern district court of the us Has also unfortunately as of yesterday denied bail who assange and. here's what she said. Judge the nessa barrett sir. She said there's a show grounds to believe..
