Tim Michaels Wins Wisconsin Republican Nomination for Governor
"Got renominated last night. You got renominated last night. Any upsets anything interesting happened in Wisconsin elections last night? Well, I mean, the governor primary was coming down to the wire. It was close to Michael's prevailed over Rebecca, clayfish, Rebecca, clay fish, was the former lieutenant governor, endorsed by former governor Scott walker, Tim Michaels is a businessman who was endorsed by former president Trump. And so that was a very hard fought primary to Michael's prevailed and so now we have the task of uniting the party behind Tim Michael's in order to oust governor Evers, who has been a terrible governor and he was vetoed any number of common sense conservative legislation. So that was really the race everybody was watching. You know, there were a lieutenant governor's race where a state senator from my district, who I know well prevailed, but other than that, it was mostly the governor's primary that people were focused on.
Gov. Scott Walker: Thank God Senate Didn't Confirm Garland for SCOTUS
"Protesters activists, people on the far left are literally breaking federal law, camped out in front of the homes of Supreme Court Justices, voicing their displeasure through bullhorns and banging drums and obscenities and everything else carrying around bloodied baby dolls and yet Merrick Garland and the Justice Department and the Biden administration don't seem to have any inclination to at least enforce the law. Isn't it fascinating how the media has the mainstream media at least has refused to even acknowledge the lawlessness of these protesters? If it was reversed, there'd be pants on fire, their hair would be on fire. Although I do have to say, Mike, one thing just an aside, I just knocked some in the Senate. This is where they deserve credit from a few years ago. Thank God they did not confirm Merrick Garland as a member of the U.S. Supreme Court for all this talk about him being some reasonable middle of the road person. He's not. He's a total left wing lackey. And the idea that earlier this year, he would allow his Justice Department to be aligned with the national association of school boards when they were calling concerned parents showing up at school board meetings domestic terrorists and really trying to intimidate them. This is the same Justice Department that, as you mentioned, this isn't just a bad idea. This is a federal law that prohibits people intimidating officers of the court. That's justices, judges, prosecutors, understandably so. We don't want people who are before the court out trying to intimidate a judge or a justice and their family, you know, that's something you think of years ago with the mafia or somebody else in organized crime trying to do that. They should be prosecuting those people to the full extent of the law and they certainly need to step up once this decision comes out. What was alleged to have happened or could have happened against Kavanaugh justice Kavanaugh? I think is a prime reminder about why this is just so important.
Gov. Scott Walker: Uvalde School Shooting Was a Preventable Disaster
"The shocking testimony yesterday suggests that they didn't even open a door that wasn't even locked that law enforcement waited an hour and 17 minutes or whatever it was that this arradondo evidently stood down and I'm hearing from cops all over the country law enforcement who say that it was, well, as the DPS chief in Texas called it an abject failure and yet that may have that tragedy and that horrific catastrophe where there's 19 babies in those two beautiful women were murdered, that may just have led to an erosion of the Second Amendment of the constitution because people think we need to do something. Right, instead of looking at the heart of the issue here, as you are, Mike, I'm a big proponent of law enforcement. I think the last few years with the whole defund the police effort has been a horrible mistake and it's led to early release and DAs who have set lower no cash bail and all sorts of problems, which is why many of our large cities have major crime problems. But in this instance, and I've usually reluctant to criticize the police without knowing the full circumstance, but as the picture becomes clear and clear, and this is an absolute favorite. This is a preventable catastrophe of preventable disaster. There's not only did the system fail not seeing that this young man had signs of problems long before this tragedy of bird, but as you just mentioned, the training that law enforcement goes through in instance after instance, we have examples all across the country that people are putting themselves at great risk even risk of losing their life to save Americans, let alone children out here. So just a huge, huge failure. And the proposal is being thrown around the United States Senate aren't really addressing the issues with people not willing to follow the law and with people falling into the trap of mental health issues.
Gov. Scott Walker: The Feel-Good Gun Control Laws Don't Address Issues
"You know, we need warriors right now. Boy, do we need we need conservatism and it feels to me like the Republican Party is teed up to have a really successful November to start taking this country back. We desperately need a return to sanity and normalcy and yet a lot of conservatives are very upset about this gun control, you know, bipartisan deal. Now 14 Republicans are supporting it. What do you say to the American to the average American who cherishes the Second Amendment doesn't want red flag laws doesn't want our constitutional rights taken away from your perspective and you've been at the game a long time. You know you know this world is this advancement problematic or is it something that needed to be done after you've all in Buffalo and other mass shootings? Well, I think this unfortunately reflection of the Senate or you've got a number of people who on any number of issues are on the bubble. They've held firm up until recently. I think because of obviously the dismal ratings of Joe Biden and his economic policy, but I do think it's a reminder that we've got to have a countermeasure to this. When I was governor years ago, we initiated a number of things to improve school safety, put our money where our mouth was did more to put officers into schools did more to reinforce schools and did more to deal with mental health issues. We've seen in Texas as we've seen elsewhere, time and time again, particularly coming off this pandemic. We've got a mental health crisis, particularly amongst young people, and these feel good. A gun control laws aren't addressing those issues, and that's rarely really where we should be spending our time.

Jennifer Horn Describes What the MAGA Movement Meant to Her
"Welcome back to one on one with Jennifer hoon. You have been very open Jennifer. In your political stance, you are a proud supporter of the concept of making America great again. You are proud bearer and wearer of all things America first. The merchandise that is. My weekend wear. It's a weekend. When it's not sparkly, it's America first stuff that you can get at our store. Talk to us. We should get some sequined maga stuff for me, by the way. Is that off brand? Well, I can hang. Yeah, that's okay. Talk to us about your take and not the California perspective or the radio show host perspective. Told us about what the maga movement meant to you and the significance of this non politician becoming a president 5 years ago. Well, I think the maga movement meant a lot to me and I identified it really, really early on, and it's because of my it's because of my roots being planted in California that I think it sunk in so much for me. So I can remember clear as day that morning in June. I was Scott walker to the max. You know, there were these rumblings about Donald Trump, maybe jumping in or not, didn't know too much about what he would say didn't know if it was going to be serious or not. Thought, you know what, the more the merrier, it didn't, you know, it didn't make me sad that he was thinking about it. But I remember getting ready for work, and I was sitting on my bed, putting on my shoes. I can visualize this. And I see him come down the escalator with Melania and I see him come to that podium and the very first thing that he talked about was immigration. The very first thing and Seb, I've lived in a border state, my entire life, and I have seen people get left behind. I've seen people living in the shadows. I've seen our school in our hospitals, just get run down because they couldn't handle the load of people using them. And I thought, this is the only man that I have seen that is brave enough to tackle this as the first issue that he's I mean, he walked off the elevator and started talking about immigration. And I mean, that was incredibly brave. Most politicians do not have the backbone to go to a controversial issue like immigration first
Analyzing California's Governor Recall Election: The Three Waves of Ballots
"There's going to be three waves about that happen tonight. And tomorrow and leading up to the next couple days the first balanced that are gonna be counter all mail in ballots so expect the democrats have a major jump and that tonight but that doesn't mean it's over. The second wave of ballots are going to be people that have voted in person today or they went and dropped off those meal and ballots. Third wave is going gonna be people that meld in their ballots today or a few days before election day so could be short. Night could be a long night. It's always looked now. I believe this thing is razor close. I believe that there is a silent californian voter ready to rise up against the new regime recalls tricky. There's only one other governor that is successfully been able to fight off a recall in recent american political history and that was governor scott walker andrew. You live in california. Stop looking at the polls. Those are all garbage. Those are simulated. What are you seeing hearing on the ground in california. I'm seeing an incredible amount of energy for the for larry elder. You could make the argument that i live in a bubble. I probably do we all do to some extent. I will tell you that this you know you. And i were talking months ago. I was underwhelmed. I didn't think that it really stood real chance. All of a sudden the energy behind the recall movement exploded it was a true grassroots movement. Outpouring i mean you're seeing it in in liberal enclaves strongholds like santa barbara you're seeing it and coastal communities you were seeing massive crowds gather local communities getting together and in ways that i hadn't seen in california in a long time. Now there was. There was trump excitement all this this this blew that away. I will tell you anecdotally. This blew that away. I think there was a collective exhaustion. There's just homelessness everywhere. It's expensive we all look at the state. Is the weather the topography. The just the everything about it. There's so much going for it and to see it being run the way it is. It's it's a
Wisconsin State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski Never Thought She'd Become State Official
"I'll be honest. I think like so many women i Did not ever be out where i am today like. I wasn't one of those kids in middle school. That was drying american flags and have the constitution memorized. And said i'm going to be wisconsin's next senator But with that sad. I was always really community oriented. I mean my parents were public school teachers. Ed when we we'd see trash on the highway. I was that kid that wanted to start a club where we would pick up from asking go recycle it and then we would take that money and give it to the homeless shelter Or we were. We had a big wolf population Issue in wisconsin and so i- second grade adopted a wolfpack in son raise. And the people. You that way you is that when you see something wrong you got the ended up in do something about it and i think that's really how i've lived my entire career. I mean i never thought. I would be an elected official in here. I am now you know. The state treasurer of wisconsin and it was because scott walker was trying to get rid of the state treasurer's office. I'm in two thousand eighteen. There was this constitutional amendment that he put on the ballot. Because you know. Rebecca hilly who needs checks and balances in government. I mean firing your chief financial officer then giving those responsibility to your ceo. I mean we would never do that in business. So why do we think that the government. And i've found myself leading a constitutional amendment to save the treasury office. They believed wisconsin state treasurer. When that happened we won that amendment by the way with sixty three percent of the vote. Which as all of us in purple states know that is a landslide. Victory and still. The question was well. Who's going to run for it and I i remember my grandma. Act was thinking about her. When i was debating what i should do and she she said about public service she was actually harder. The first group went into serb during world war two and when i was asking her about her public service she said sarah take Asked for forgiveness for

But it's not it's not white privilege. It's red white and blue privilege the privilege of living in the greatest country in the history of the world where we've got freedoms and opportunities unlike anywhere else In this great planet and so even though you know grumbling in washington. I think across the heartland of america people are happy to be in america. And we're we're blessed to be in this great country and we want to preserve our republic. I understand one of the concerns. You have about america right now. Is our schools and how young people are Dealing with them and you've started a new foundation. I understand you want to tell. Will americans about it yeah. I'm the new president of the young america's foundation why af dot or you're exactly right when you you look at now. We are colleges which has a problem for years that now increasingly in our schools from really from kindergarten all the way through twelfth grade and beyond now only government run schools but even in private and some cases even faith based schools sadly too many of our educators to many of our bureaucrats are teaching our kids to hate america. That somehow there's something awful about this country Certainly we've had our ups and downs throughout our our history Since that first day of declaring independence back on july fourth seventeen seventy seven but but the fact of the matter is were country based on freedom and opportunity for everyone that We've got to preserve that. And we've gotta protect that in so young. America's foundation is working on college campuses and schools. Now the middle school with a new program. We have called the long game to reach out the students on more campuses on every campus in america and the reach out to the suitor. Because the left is already out there and we got a pushback and counter. I understand now why why it teaches doing that. Is the unions influences. A outside influences that are taking upon the schools. I know chinese are making big investments in universities. Have you figured it out yet. Yeah it's it's all there bothers it's it's a number of things you get The marxist years decades ago couldn't take over america because we're not a class society so they've made their march through our colleges and universities We've seen that going from just liberal bias. Which i remember even as a student myself to now to cancel culture where they're not even letting anyone with A middle center right view of the world even speak out on these issues. That's why the first and foremost battles on free speech For considered students conservative speakers even conservative professors and then the other part is pushing back on curriculum but we found is there's an effort to try and intimidate conservative students invoices on campus and that even includes educators not only just conservative ones but even ones it just want to be fair. It's the teachers. Union is professor. But i think it all comes from a a much larger plan of this marxist approach that goes all the way back to saul alinsky in the rules for radicals in the nineteen sixties. They've been following that like a playbook and that's why i say what we're doing. Get young america's foundation won't change everything overnight. It's gonna take more than just immediate cycle. Maybe even more than a presidential cycle but we have to. We gotta do more than just win the battle the day we've got to win the war for the heart and soul of our republic and i know we can't and this foundation is based out of where out of washington out of milwaukee where where are you based air. They are in Just outside of washington in rested. Virginia one of the cool things is we also now own and operate the reagan ranch. Outset barbara President reagan mrs. Reagan had their home their Even before he was president all throughout his years and then there after it. So i was just out there last week. We bring young people up to the ranch. We bring in conserve speakers and educators. It's a once in a lifetime experience for these students. But it's not just the ranch. We do conferences.

And I just had this, just kind of a sinking feeling in my gut. I had not been a song manic, follower ability, but I always, I always had a great affection for him and I started going into a rabbit hole going into his back catalogue. And every time I would look him up, I kept seeing this picture, the guy in Shades in the sixties kind of like a a sixties Dandy that every it just woke up and that was Scott Walker. And what apparently was it was for this this show for this movie documentary, that David Bowie had executive-produced called birth. Have Century man, and which was directed by Steven Chi Jack.

Whenever I would look up Bowie, his like his he met with him a lot. Do you think you worked on some yourself? I think.

Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down Wisconsin's stay-at-home order that closed businesses to limit spread of coronavirus
"A piece of audio from a state Supreme Court justice this was from esquire magazine in discussing the governor's order to stay at home the assistant Attorney General Colin Ross appeared to be rethinking his career choice Bradley the Supreme Court justice went full on Glenn Beck never go full on Glenn back this is what the press called full on Glenn back listen to this judge my question for you is where in the constitution to the people of Wisconsin confer a sorority on the singles on elected cabinet secretary to compel almost six million people to stay at home and close their businesses and face imprisonment if they don't comply with no input from the legislature without the consent of the people isn't it the very definition of tyranny for one person to order people to be imprisoned for going to work among other ordinarily lawful activities where does the constitution say that's permissible council one of the bravest guys and the guy who appointed her to the Supreme Court successful governor economic education healthcare reformer Scott Walker joins us now governor how are you Sir Eglin even better today because of the Supreme Court yesterday sure okay so the Supreme Court yesterday in Wisconsin struck down the stay at home order what does that mean well there was no stay so it means technically anyone anywhere in the state of Wisconsin could be opened the one caveat to that is welcome to the home rule states so there are still the ability of local jurisdiction so a handful of communities city Milwaukee city of R. we're seeing a Dane county or state capitals at all very Liberal Democrat areas there governor should be there mayors and or account executives issued similar orders to what the governor's administration will done but for everybody else it means technically any retail establishment or whatever's open last night around the state there are other places out there although and I heard the tail end of year your last segment in the end the governor I've said for weeks the government can get out of the way but ultimately the market will determine when businesses reopen when employees feel safe to come back in when the when customers ultimately come back as well but it the first step is getting the government out of the way so Z. the get the new governor the guy who I think replaced you it had issued the stay at home order he said yesterday last night on CNN this puts our state in the chaos now we have no plan no protections for the people when you have more people in a small space I don't care if it's bars restaurants or the home you're going to be able to spread the virus today thanks to the Republican legislators convinced for Supreme Court justices not to look at the law but look at their political careers I guess it's a bad day for Wisconsin because now it's the wild west commented when it's it's like it's like they've suspended common sense not only in his statement but not others across the country we see this over and over again we've been operating for nearly two months now with the threat of this coronavirus in every time anyone goes in a grocery store every time someone goes into a pharmacy every time someone goes to the hardware store every time someone shows up in a in a manufacturing plant that is deemed essential by the government they've been able to do that overwhelmingly across the country safely so to me it just defies common sense that now certainly since the so called nonessential businesses can open finally because those justices actually upheld the law they did exactly opposite what he said they actually upheld the law now does that mean the people who've been operating safe we're certainly going to go crazy and and not use the same watching the done before of course not you know here here's here's the thing first of all I think you guys had the election when every but when nobody knew what was gonna happen and with that it shows that no there was no spread to from you guys holding L. holding the election which quite honestly at the time I would have found surprising but there was no problem for holding the election yeah I guess the the governor didn't learn his lesson from that one and when did we go from a let's not overwhelm the system let's not overwhelm hospitals and doctors and the nurses let's flatten the curve to nobody's going out until everybody is safe yeah it it's it's the flat occur versus now we have to find a cure before anyone can set foot out there the logic I went back and looked two months ago yesterday I wrote a piece on Facebook about how we need to be rational we needed to follow the guidelines we probably shouldn't have Dick's sporting events or concerts for awhile so we could figure this out but that we could do these things without shutting down the economy we just had to use our common sense we had to be purposeful interactions to make sure we're safe the same is true today over two months we flatten the curve but do you still have government officials whose immediately seem like they're hiding under their beds open a guide somehow this will just go away it's not going away it's not going to change anytime soon and if we don't win this year register Connie devastate but think of all the people across America who missed out on doctor's visits in clinics and other checkups who missed out on early detection I mean this is literally a life threatening issue even when it comes to re opening the economy so governor do you really believe that these people are hiding under their beds or is there something else involved I mean there is we have to balance things and that is what a leader does he gets advice from the FAO cheese and they save Valjean just tell me about the health effects and then somebody else has to advise is didn't tell me just about the economic effects and then I have to make choices as a leader on what we do we are now looking at a group of people in Washington and it seems to be falling on party lines that they for some reason we just don't want to open the economy and no one is talking about the deadly effects of America going down the drain or going into a deep depression not only the affects financially but the effects of health and welfare all over the globe millions could die because we go down it even amazing the group that are not aligned with that don't normally reference but even a United Nations report recently just this week showed that grave concerns about massive I mean we're talking crippling poverty around the world because of the economic effects here in their point was that this will actually have a much larger devastating impact on the Taliban casualties because of malnutrition because of the depression because of suicide because of all sorts of issues I think it's a combination of summer parade and some have an agenda when I look at Nancy Pelosi's and we could talk all day about her ridiculous three trillion dollar bill that's out there but one of the things I think's been ignored about what you did put out this week is they've got a provision that would extend the federal unemployment enhanced benefits till January one that tells me Democrats believe our whole some have an agenda that they want the economy not to open until after the start of the year which conveniently happens to be after the presidential election I I got to say if you're an American not a Republican not a Democrat now to conserve not a liberal but Americans that should scare the crap idea we should be doing something about it so do you think that the American people are I mean I think that my father used to say there is no such thing as bad it doesn't it nothing is bad it's depends on how you react to it that will make it a bad thing in your life for good thing you can go to prison for robbing a bank that's not bad that is something that you could use now to reforge yourself and and become better the corona virus I think has helped a lot of people get perspective on their life it is showing us that we need family and shows us that you know this arguing back and forth with the politics is really the Washington doesn't have the power we have the power we could use this to wake up on the bill of rights etcetera etcetera or we will allow it to destroy us do you think the American people are waking up on both sides of the aisle and saying wait a minute wait a minute these essential bill of rights liberties are really important I I do have some more slowly than others but but I do think they're waking up yesterday's ruling in the Wisconsin Supreme Court was a good step in the right direction because as I said after the ruling came out you know though okay holding the rule of law is important even in an emergency it's an important event and I'm optimistic it as frustrated as I am as as challenging as times are I think about American particular country that started out in defeating the greatest military power at the time who overcame a civil war that would have torn apart just to any other country in the world you ever came to me two world wars took on nine eleven were Americans and were country based on freedom and as long as we cherish those freedoms and liberties even in times like this I have no doubt we can overcome anything the part of that means of free will and the ability to engage in free enterprise that's something that I think it's fundamentally a part of who we are it's what king Solomon talked about finding joy in your labor I often say nobody signed by my high school yearbook saying good luck becoming it depend on the government we all no matter who we can where we come from what we look like we all in our hearts we want to work we want to find join our labor we need to get the government on lease and get it out of the way so that we can go back to work and and restore

"Here W said have Been winners on this. So take care of each other. That's for sure. A couple quick thoughts as we wrap up the show here and thanks for sticking with this past six o'clock hour I i. I don't know if you noticed but again in this break I've been noticing all throughout the brakes so many of these ads. Talk about referencing. How they're they're clean. They'RE SAFE. They practice social distancing. I it just as remarkable reminder. I've been saying over and over again today on the show and and in the days leading up to this that the market will decide this that that people in the private sector without a doubt can adapt to this and can reopen. Just like you know my sister like I said it's over at the what the gang at home depot and walk the show. They're doing a great job whether it's sad or grocery stores or other places We can definitely do this and Yeah Paul's right. We're planning the seat for their future. Return do it safe Whether it's a hair salon nail salon restaurants but let them open up. Let let them be responsible. Let them and as I like the idea of put out a sign. Let's put out. I love if there was some sort of icon that maybe the State Chamber somebody else have. You could put on your website. You could print out your window that said here. We've signed the pledge. Were we've committed to doing whatever these ten or twelve things are socially distance? The disinfect clean the practice safe and responsible business here. We could do that. And I think that's something people could join in whether you're a big employer or small business Certainly it's almost you know. I think people would seek out Iraq customers which I want to go to that place and I think the reason I know that is because these ads people are running ads telling them because they they know that that's how they're going to get business the private sector in any way. There's so much smarter than the government. I think just listening to this ad the ads the last three hours is a great reminder. About why the the marketplace is going to reopen the economy and bring back employees and customers long before the government ever does although the government needs to get out of the way and as I mentioned federally. Do things like Stop this disincentive. With higher. Pay For people were unemployed than those are still working to go back couple other quick just random thoughts that I wanted to comment on today but I don't WanNa leave without that and that is Joe Biden. I mean I don't know if a read is telling the truth or not. I Haven't looked I've looked into what I could read but I don't know all the facts out there I can't. It's hard to judge that but I can see. I can tell the hypocrisy of those on the left particularly Joe Biden himself who just flat out a couple years ago. Said you know anybody who makes this sort of accusation needs to be believed. I normally reference New York Times columnist. But I gotTa Tell You I agree with read out. I mean the Democrats always said standards that come back and bite them is. Sh is a doubt writes. The response to terror reads allegation. It's exposing the hypocrisy of the Democrat. Party missed out has said that. She's always found the principle that all women must be elite. Be believed to be absurd. These were her words but she argues. Democrats have a history of hewing to it when it serves their partisan ends. See the cases of Clarence. Thomas Injustice Cavanaugh. Obviously of late to be particularly making the case while they abandon it when when it critically imperils them see the obvious case of Bill Clinton Particular back during the one thousand nine hundred ninety s now as during Mr Clinton's presidency the conditional nature of Democrats commitment to bleeding women has been exposed. It's an important reminder out there for folks I mean just the pure hypocrisy Just showing how really only was a political tool which should outrage anyone in America and clean me who thinks there are legitimate cases to be made about what many in the me too multiple brought up that that not just allowing women who have legitimate claims to be heard in for action be taken but equally if not more importantly doing more to make sure that workplaces across America never but women are for that matter in some cases men in situations where they should have or have to put up with any of that crap in the first place But the fact that Joe Biden himself as well as so many of his supporters felt I point out. It's just it's amazing to me that that the High School Yearbook of Justice Cavenaugh was more important to most of these Democrats than Joe Biden releasing The documents or at least access to the documents to do a search for Tara Reid's name documents at the University of Delaware that actually are from his time in public office. The fact that that is an is important. As as looking at a high school yearbook From Justice cavenaugh just shows you the exact the total hypocrisy of those on the left And I couldn't be on the show without bringing up a couple of other quick thoughts when I mentioned you can look at this. Entire poll lose a story and linked to the actual pull itself every question which I always find is important. We look at poll. If you get a chance to look at the questions and.

"Filling in for Mark belling newstalk Eleven Thirty Sen. Reo speedwagon rain. The storm another appropriate song and the music. Here we're GONNA ride the storm out hopefully sooner than later again if you want to join us in this conversation. Full one four seven nine nine eleven thirty. That's the economic mortgage talk and text line for one four seven nine nine eleven thirty. Just saying there's four Specific reasons why. I believe we shouldn't be bailing out to state governments states like New York and Illinois and others that have gotten themselves into trouble long before corona virus came along. There's really four specific reasons why it doesn't make any sense to do that. The first one is if we're going to do anything if the federal government's GonNa do anything going forward. We talked about this before we they should do more to help. Workers in and particularly small businesses this paycheck protection plan which is probably the best. If not the only good thing that we've seen of late from the federal government is still a challenges as is worthwhile was it was obviously for wilder. We saw the the problems of the the money running out and then Pelosi and company stalling in in Chuck Schumer stalling and trying to get other things with this. When it was just as simple as putting more more federal dollars into that program going or keep it going But even at that. I mean they're still our our big big problems For a lot of folks this is going to go further than just. The dates that are identified there are challenged beyond just payroll for a lot of small businesses. Pay For sure but paying their mortgage Is is a big part of their businesses. I is paying their payroll each month as well and so I I say first before we start talking about bailing out State governments many which had their own problems many of which are still paying almost all of their employees. Many of whom are sitting idle. Not doing much of any work. Some obviously in health and public safety and it's appropriate for them to continue to be paid and continue to be working but many others aren't when when you see so many businesses in so many small business owners I keep hearing about who much as many of them did back in two thousand eight two thousand nine where they took a massive pay cut or they were. They didn't take a salary at all this to keep people working on the payroll that we've dealt with my own business. We're we're cutting back a little bit to account for some of the changes that we see out there. All these things are happening in the private sector in. I see little if anything like that happening In the public sector so first and foremost if we're going to do anything help. The workers help the workers and help the small businesses. Secondly another reason why I would argue the federal government should not bail out state. Governments is simply this. Don't create big holes. I we know this firsthand for any of us who are elected in two thousand ten for any state announced here Wisconsin but across the country We know that however good intention if you give people the benefit the doubt we saw we saw what happened after the last national recession. You so all this money. Come into to state and local governments. We saw what happened eventually. Iran out eventually the money runs out and you know with all the Hoopla the all the attention that Brock Obama Joe Biden got When the money the money was poured out overwhelmingly had to state local governments There wasn't hardly an ounce of coverage about how wh- eventually went away. We came in in two thousand eleven after the two thousand ten million to eleven after the two thousand ten elections a big part of our problem. What was it combinations? One Two punch was The economy was still not fully recovered. And we need to do things to help the people because the government has increased to jobs help people at the state create more jobs opportunity combined with the fact there were these huge budget Holtz Because of money being backed away expectations were that you know for schools and local and parts of state government that they were still get money the way they were even. If the money was money that was just temporarily backfill then through so-called federal stimulus dollars we saw time and time and time again and so a good chunk of the the the immediate deficit. We had combined with the three point. Six billion dollar gap the shortfall that we had going into the budget that started July. One of two thousand eleven was because of that one two punch of the economy not fully recovered. Revenues net coming in Because of a healthy economy or lack thereof and the gap in federal stimulus funds In fact I remember good example. This happened in Even to here before I was elected in two thousand ten or you before I took office as she say in two thousand ten the account executive I remember having to deal with it. We tried to backfill Some of the cuts in state funding that came from pullback federal funding. A by doing simple things like a thirty five hour workweek once a month for four months the unions basically told me to take a long walk off a short pier. Actually the they were no nowhere near kind. Is that And that's part of the reason why I knew. We had to change collective bargaining but one of the other stories about how the Milwaukee Public School System In the Milwaukee. The schools had reduction in part because of all these changes in federal and state funding and What did they do well? The middle of a budget year. They had to make reductions. And so the first fired archenemy the I hired as the first fired. Let me see. The last hired is the first fire The last ends I out and that included that era a young teacher who is a first year English teacher who had just been named the outstanding new English teacher by accounts of English teachers for Cross State. People say how could that happen well? That was the way the system works. And when you don't have the funding when federal funding was product things up. But that money didn't come back. That creates huge problems. And so the second reason they shouldn't bail out the states's all that does is they're not going to be able to permanently. Fill in that gap and so eventually it might be here might be eighteen months later. But they're going to have a hole in their budgets and that's exactly what we faced an exactly where they shouldn't do it again. Third reason is if you bail amount you don't force real reforms mean my goodness the One of the best things we did is we came in. We had this whole and we knew we couldn't just push it off to the future. We had to actually really fix it. This was our chance or opportunity to do it right but also was part of. I looked at the the other options out there. Massive tax increase will not only am I against tax increases. But we knew at that time with the being as in the dumps as it was that a massive tax increase would be devastating to the economy. I wanted to streamline government. We knew that you know. Twelve fifteen thousand. Layoffs and state government wants Wasn't the way to go that you know. Massive pink slips wasn't the answer if you're going to reduce the size and scope of government. You need to do over time with with reasonable reforms and then we looked at the other big. The biggest growing parts state governance budgets is typically Medicaid. We were going to cut over. Three billion dollars from for Medicaid because that would legitimately hurt seniors and people need and others out there. I wanted to reform it by by stopping paying for so many of the people between Eighteen and in retirement age. Who were able to work. We were paying for in the past and and I knew we could do. We could make that up to cover three point six billion so instead. We did what we did with ten would put in place real reforms as I've said since then have saved us some twelve billion dollars. Well there's no incentive to do the sorts of reforms if the federal government Dale's places like Illinois and New York state and others out and then finally the fourth big reason is the federal government can't afford it I mean for goodness sakes we keep talking about trillions of dollars the cares act the cares act itself cost almost double what the entire federal debt was the very first year. Ronald Reagan was president United States the entire debt. We're talking about in the next day or so the the national debt clock. That's in New York City. That keeps updating what. The debt of this country is of the Federal Government is actually surpass twenty five trillion dollars for the first time ever and will likely be will likely be thirty trillion dollars within this year. We were fearful earlier this year when I was talking about the need for a balanced budget amendment. We were fearful that by twenty twenty five at the end of this next presidential term that we'd have a national debt a federal debt of thirty trillion dollars. We're looking at this by the end of this year with the kind of money that they're spending in the impact. It's having on our national budget. The the budget deficit itself is more than the debt was Back when I was a kid When like I said when race president so it is just out of control. We gotTa Stop the spending that we gotta stop bailing out we again. We wouldn't do this with people we know we'd say. Hey you got to do something to change. There needs to be an intervention The federal government needs intervention with a balanced budget amendment and needs to to get back on track and and start putting in place real reforms. It'll turn federal spinning around states like Oh annoy in New York. Need to do that as well. And so this is just fundamentally important. I I can get worked up on this David David. You've been waiting for quite some time from Mechlin. You're on newstalk eleven thirty wfan. Thanks for joining us Thank you for taking the car. I really appreciate it Cheer Point actually my mother-in-law fortunately she came from Illinois and one of the reasons why is because the cost of living is so high. There people forget when you when you buy purchase things thing. Cook County their sales tax almost ten percent. You look at what they did. They sold off all the parking meters In the city of Chicago generate revenue. And then they turned around and they double almost double I think the The registration cars almost one hundred and fifty dollars now to register your car every year In addition Yele increase hallways they slapped on ulcers other little taxes at the local level You know for restaurants and you gain Internet service and everything and eventually you know. There's a point where she just could not afford to live there and also we bought her a place here in Glendale and You know it's much lower cost living and she's a much better financial shade because she's not being hammered. Every time she goes in the city where she's staying fifty sixty dollars to park your car and in the city Chicago and you know whatever others things that she was spying. So you know it's and at the end of the day We look at Illinois with to your point earlier than I think are almost also almost at junk status with the heard early literally. Yeah and they just spend down this rabbit hole where they've been increasing their taxes every single year now for multiple years and I just read an article I think it was in December was a local Local paper that Illinois wash more people by Ron numbers than any other state and there were a number two percentage after West Virginia industry because the cost of living the taxes. It's a terrible terrible environment and unfortunately I don't WanNa see that here by I'm hoping that You know we don't go down that same road right. It's a combination Allah the taxes out of Control. The business remember more than a decade ago. Wisconsin's numbers were very similar in terms of where we ranked in places like Chief Executive magazine and the best and the worst states for business. We were in the bottom. Ten Illinois was with us We had huge challenges. We turn that around. We became one of the top ten states to do business and we we save the taxpayers. The hardworking people the states the hardworking taxpayers over thirteen billion dollars in terms of tax relief are reform stave state and local government. More than twelve billion dollars. We we did the right things. We got our fiscal house. In order a rainy day funds built up our pensions fully finding a and and yet Illinois's then none of those things and it just does not seem right doesn't seem fair That all of us has federal tax payers should have to bail out states like they're not just a matter of fairness but a matter of Illinois going to repeat the same problems over and over and over and over again if they get bailed out In this case by the federal government a federal government that by the way needs to do more to get their own house in order Before they start talking about bailing out other governments John in Racine. You're on newstalk eleven thirty. Wfan Janis sure. Miss you thank you well. I hope you're aspirations office. Seven range we could you? Jim Washington the Nice thing is. I'm I'm I'm twenty two years younger than the president and get this. I'm a quarter century younger than Joe Biden. So they both give me a reason to believe.

The Federal Government Dale's places like Illinois and New York State and others out, and then finally the fourth big reason is. The, federal government can't afford it I. mean for goodness, Sakes. We keep talking about trillions of dollars. The cares act the cares. Act itself cost almost double. What the entire federal debt was the very first year, Ronald. Reagan was President United States.

"Skywalker Dot Com and get get all the details. Plus I reference a lot of stuff I write about each week. in these In The Washington Times and We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA get that there as well. One of the I I wrote about last week was that we shouldn't be giving bailouts to the states I mean my goodness I think a fair number of people I heard some folks allude to this in our early discussions you got covered employees sitting at home and one of the things that just Hacks people off is While the government is shutting down their businesses which in turn or having to lay off employees unanimously. Have many the vast majority. I believe a government employees across the country Still on the payroll The cruelest of ironies is State governments across the country here in Wisconsin and elsewhere had tremendous backlogs when it comes to unemployment claims. I know I actually have distinctly Tonet Neier Net Situation. Either sons matter. Alex both working. But we've got some family members who you asked me and I'm like you know until they put more bodies there one of the one of the things I suggested. I thought it was pretty simple. Suggestion said you got all these state. Govern employs where sitting idle at home getting paid. Why not assign them the task of helping process unemployment compensation claims do that right away. You can what's called detail. You can essentially assigning them to do that I'd take it a step further. I'd be aggressive. Say Hey if you're doing something that isn't necessarily that isn't essential that doesn't have to deal with public health public safety You GotTa Choice. We're GONNA lay off in players Or for those who don't want to face the layoff we're GONNA sign you to You can do it from home but to going through and paying a filing processing these unemployment claims so all these people who legitimately have been laid off because of the actions of the government can actually get thrown employment. I mean this this is not something I should have had to be the first one to talk about it something. They should have been doing quite some time ago. They're not doing it. I'M GONNA keep bringing it up over and over and over again whether it's on air here today Whether it's honor our twitter or facebook or instagram. Anyway we can. I just think it's a logical way To to deal with this going forward and and it's again it you can't make up the irony of people being laid off because of the actions of the government at the same time most government employees are sitting at home idol still collecting a paycheck and are not saying. Lay off even more people. But let's figure out a way to to just transfer take. There's duties that they're not doing right now and and shift them over and get them to do file the process. The the unemployment compensation claims it's just a a winner of idea and it just makes it a ton of sense but unfortunately so many government are ill equipped to think in ways that go beyond just the way things have always been done. And that's one of the challenges going forward. I hope it's one of the things that will change. I know we'll have to wait and see but I wanNA talk For the next few minutes at least about an idea that Nancy Pelosi has been talking about. You heard it from Governor Andrew Cuomo in New York you heard it from others out there and that is basically are hoping the next bill the next phase of some sort of corona virus bill Put in place. Some sort of I think closys number I heard right was something like a trillion dollars that would go to bail out the states now. I have no problem compensating for for things that are directly related to krona virus. If or things they had to do if the federal government they were going to do tasks although I think it was pretty clear after a while the president talked about state should be doing it but if they're if they're promises made about certain things the federal government was going to do in the states did instead or or did jointly. Okay let's let's negotiate for that but I'll be damned if taxpayers. That worked hard here in the state of -Sconsin after all the things tough but important changes. We made to get our act together. Here in the State of Wisconsin. I'll be damned. If if taxpayers here and elsewhere across the country have to bail out states like Ellen Annoy annoys estate that for years if not decades has been totally script. We're I'M PROUD. To say Wisconsin. We're state where our pensions number one in. The country has been completely fully funded actually slightly over over one hundred percent funded Where with their fours we did that even made it situation better For not just pensions. But for the government total We are able to balance our budget with reforms that ultimately didn't take away from our services effect if anything getting rid of seniority tenure under ten allowed our school districts for example to to hire staff based on on merit pay based on performance and could put the best in the. Bryce in classrooms and. Keep them there We've saved according to one report since Since those reforms enacted Marin enacted Some twelve billion dollars. That's money that only saves the taxpayers money that can go into services. Those reforms at work simple example is by doing things like changing collective bargaining school districts. Were able to did out their health. Insurance which saved significant amounts of money money to go right back into the government and services. They they've been able to do all these things we did them. Because you know we had to make tough choices but pay it off in Illinois. They've been refusing than about this for years O. ANNOY AN THEIR UNFUNDED LIABILITIES. Didn't even have half of their pension covered It's even worse with things like the the Teacher's Union in Chicago and so many other problems have got their They they've got Bond rating that was downgraded to the point. Where it's about junk level are Banri was improved. A Rainy Day Fund was one hundred ninety times bigger when I left them. We took office You know these are just all logical things that we did that. Got Our Fiscal House. Back in order olive oil and their hands. Just been ignoring it ignoring it ignoring it and now they've somehow be build up. They had big problems before this New York state. You know obviously had problems with New York City and the challenges. They have their again. I'm not opposed to things are directly tied in to this. That might have been a shared responsibility the federal government but remember the state of New York had about six billion dollar deficit. And why? Oh Yeah. A little known. Fact largely undercover. They did it. Because of their their deficit. Because of Medicaid they took the Medicaid expansion. The expansionary obamacare that that I did not take that we did not take here. In the State of Wisconsin. We were still able to cover everyone living in poverty for the first time our state's history we're still able to put ourselves in fact. We were at a top ten state terms of access to cover the Kaiser Family Foundation said we were. We had no gap in coverage. And we did it without exposing our state tax payers to the problems that other states are saying where the federal funding wasn't just. There wasn't there to cover the cost of expansion. New York state was one of the states. Six billion dollars and now they wanna bail things that were because of poor choices they'd made in the past to me.

"Thirty so I hope you are they next winner and I hope you're not board certainly won't be if you if you win a thousand dollars in cash a quick grand would be awfully. Nice quick reminder if you want to know more about what we're talking visit is set Scott Walker Dot Com. In fact you get all the details about com. Rewrite information were referencing out of follows in social media and every Friday we We UPLOAD OUR PODCAST. You can't recall courage so I hope you'll you'll join us for that. We'll be talking about the issues of the day. Which increasingly about crony virus in the economy and getting back to work and doing it safely and responsibly. We've had actually before I talked about that. I don't forget about this Today is nurses appreciation day. So normally we'd say this but actually this month is both nurses appreciation month and teacher appreciation so to all the nurses and all the healthcare professionals for particularly to the nurses just working their tail. Off Out there particularly in the ICU's and with hospitals with krona virus. They really are on the front lines. God bless them All the others helping them out in the healthcare professional professions and the special. Thanks to our teachers. Both my kids went to school. Toss public schools there. We appreciate the teachers there. The teachers that teach our two nieces but particularly for a couple of our friends. A couple of friends We share a little cocktail hour with on Friday nights on Zoom Are Ones in elementary school teacher? One is a librarian in the school system. And boy the challenges they have all the equipment and the technology and how to make it interesting and stay connected. These are things that Very few if any of them were prepared for so a big. Thank you to all of her teachers out there. I know Some parts of the country aren't connecting with the teachers with their kids in the classroom via technology. I know they're doing it. Overwhelmingly here in Wisconsin. So big thanks to all of them for doing that. you know we're talking about The economy and getting back to work and making sense of all this Both are statewide chamber and the Regional Chamber. Wmc Wisconsin Manufacturers and commerce. I talked to Kurt bow or not long ago about this. They put out a great plan. Ima May see just heard a news brief about that. Tim sheehy fabulous job with the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association Karma all just pleading and begging with the government to say we can do this. We can be sparked we can be logical we can do this safely and responsibly it. It's true all over the country. There are people stepping up with one of the things I I think they could do. That would would help reopen the economy. Not just putting pressure on the government to to lift the stay at home orders but particularly I mentioned. The market's going to drive this to provide confidence and calm for employees and ultimately for customers know put on a pledge. Let's less the Tannin or dozen things that every business in this country is committed to do get nuts and the government should do But put out a pledge that says here are the things will obviously vary by location type of business. But here are the things we're going to do Open safely to be responsible. I think that would provide incredible confidence first and foremost employs coming back and then ultimately ultimately for the customers to come back those locations and we can do this businesses like I said before this is not just because they care about their employees and overwhelmingly. The small businesses and particularly visit over the years cared deeply about their employees and their families. They have a real sense of responsibility for the livelihoods of those families But because they care about their health they also care about the health of not just the business of those families and how about We're able to keep that on track going forward and so they're going to be smart. They're going to be sensitive. We just heard some of the ADS. We've earned the last hour. We're from businesses that change their ads to talk about. Hey we practice we WANNA do remodeling. We'll come in now. The perfect time will come with mask and boots and gloves and we'll do all sorts of things to be will spray down. We can be safe. And sound practice social distancing the market gets it if given the chance the government just needs to get out of the way Again if you WANNA be joined this conversation on the academic mortgage talk and text line. It's four one four seven nine nine eleven thirty. We've got dave from Milwaukee you're on the line. Thanks for hanging around with this Dave Dave. Sorry Dave from newstalk. Eleven thirty dubbing. I said Yes sir. It has great to hear you good. Good to hear you on the radio. I'll say this common sense and logic less governor's office when the Tornado. Tyrant was voted in I need to get back to work before. There's nothing left to come back to. And that's what it's GONNA come down to an efficient way. We're going to react every every flu virus or every. Call the word you trouble here. It's pretty much done So yeah we need to exercise commonsense and and do the things that are their parents hopefully taught us how to wash your hands. And don't these other people just just commonsense things but we're never going to be one hundred percent safe that's just a fallacy. It's created by this. This governor in these political allies. It's never going to happen. Life's not about that. It's about risk He didn't you're not you're risking life so I'm not seeing people should be stupid and do things that are inherently risky with us. But we have to get back to work and you've just use commonsense. Well WE HAVE TO HAVE. We have to have some logic applied here. And they've talked about the data. I mentioned the Hospital Association. Talking about how admissions are very controllable rate. Right now which was what we were told. Early on was the critical factor. We were told that. Not only here in Wisconsin all across the country Other than in extreme cases like new city a handful of other places across the country that that largely has been kept under control We were also told me wanted. The frustrations is I alluded. To before is it's been all over the map. We were told we weren't gonNA shut down. That was going to happen. Then I think the legislative leaders were told that then we come back a few days later and suddenly boom. There was this order to stay at home. What really troubled me and where I got very specific not just to my concerns about the nation as a whole but but here in Wisconsin was when they extended this When the administration the current administration extended US remember they announced it and there was no real rationale given I. I'm enough of a Geek that I actually went in and read the order that was given granted. They did some maneuvering to try. And get around this legally so that the order was not from the Governor Extending Executive Order. It was through the secretary in this case. The person designated to be the secretary because Almost a year and a half in they still haven't have confirmed secretary there but but the person who is in that spot The designates the secretary of health services issued this under the health portion of the state statutes. But they didn't give any rationale the language they use this basically a rehash of the original language where did again little known Not really covered by the media in that language. They basically acknowledged that their original warnings were way off. Thank God I mean you had a personal level thank God. I'm glad that the warnings here in Wisconsin and across the country were nowhere near what they originally thought but the warnings the numbers were way off and so they explained all that and then base exhibit. We're going to push this back to. May Twenty six and you see other hunters doing the same thing and other parts of the country. And you're like okay. So where is the logic in this that particularly when all the talk was about? Let's see where the next fourteen days or they they leapfrog ahead of that. Why would you go almost a month and a half out without any real parameters and I think a lot of folks? I've talked to many small business owners. I've talked to many workers. I've talked even healthcare professionals. I've talked to chamber executives others who say it the real concern is. Is this lack of leadership in this wondering if the the provisions that remember they had nothing out there and then they got beat up by other so much that then they came back the next week and said Okay we got this Badger. Bounceback Plan But the the guides that the benchmarks were so prohibited. And makes you wonder if we're GONNA come back anytime before this fall if you're really gonNa meet that and so that's just not realistic that the bottom line here and the caller asked me earlier. What would I do it? Simple apply commonsense. Be In a position where you instead of mandating these things talk about why we need to do certain things engaged public and engage people across the board. You this say here are the things that we can do to safely reopen parts of the economy. That are not already open by doing the things that other parts of the economy that happened. Open this whole time The grocery stores to convenience stores The The people doing the orders at restaurants That the people working in healthcare facilities healthcare facilities own separate thing but the Amazon The Postal Service Fedex. Ups All these folks that have been working have been able to do it in a way. That was responsible and safe. And we can do the same thing if we just are smart about this. Of course you have.

"They Stiller's like to say Standard Data and message rates apply in this nationwide contest, but as we've seen forty seven times before and today this morning was another one of those examples We've had listeners here during this three hour segment, including one of the Times I was on was winter so hopefully one of you out there will be the cash wintering. You'll be a part of the nationwide contest, so that's pretty cool stuff. While, I was thinking of four words to start things out with open. Get don't stop. What does that mean well? It's pretty simple it's let's open the economy. Let's get back to work. Let's let's tell people don't encroach on our liberties, and for goodness Sake, stop the spending. Washington. They need to stop to spending. We're GONNA talk about all that and plenty more in the in the coming three hours. We have together. Thank you so much for joining us today. The start off though I'm reminded of one of my favorite quotes. From our fortieth president, someone I'd. been thinking about for years Ronald Reagan was was president eighteen eighty, when I was still just twelve years of age. I was enamored by him. He's probably more than any human. Being other than my parents had the greatest influence on my my time in public service, not just why I'm a Republican or a conservative both, which is true of the because I'm an optimist, but one of the things he said I posted at the header on my on my twitter and facebook feed right now. It's the simple quote. Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it onto our children in the bloodstream. They must be fought for protected a handed on for them to do the same. That's we're gonNA talk about today. You know it's ultimate all the size and the freedom. It's part of the reason why I love being here. Wisconsin and Tennessee are gonNA. Continue to in the future going GonNa Touch Internet and and the kids in her family, but but part of the reason why I'm looking forward to starting in twenty twenty one I'll become. We'll keep a home here. Wisconsin but I'll I'll spend time as well in Virginia and California as the President of a national organization targeting at that next generation. Yes, Young America's foundation. Was Started, by William F Buckley. Back in nineteen sixty Ronald Reagan long before he was held public office was the honorary national chairman of the F. and One of the great prizes has his that over the past twenty two plus years they've owned and operated the Reagan ranch just outside of Santa Barbara California, his beloved ranch, which I said it pitted amazes a built the freedom, and the frugality that we saw in in my favorite mid Western governor And President Governor and president. Ronald Reagan the the freedom of the wide open space of that ranch, looking over the ocean from one peak and. The other and yet the midwestern frugality of a man who was raised during the Great Depression, who lived in a small ranch house there where he didn't even throw away the bed frames from the previous owner all. That's going to be exciting, but but more than anything. It's not just the nostalgia for Reagan. It's the fact that it's about teaching this next generation about freedom. About the importance of freedom I've I've talked about this before I write a weekly column in the. Washington Times are I've talked about it when I filled on this program before, but but really the opposite of socialism. is not capitalism. It's not free enterprise. It's freedom free enterprise is a part of that but free speech free practice of religion free media all the things that are guaranteed endowed by our creator, but defined in our constitution are all funny about freedom, and in all the things we're going to talk about today. It really evolves around that that core concept, so we're GonNa talk about that about the economy about some of the challenges we face about some of the issues with the State Supreme Court race with federal unemployment benefits, and what that means. We're getting people back to work. WE'RE GONNA talk about much more though we're gonNA, talk about not bailing out the states. I knew a thing or two about that about what happens going to walk through that. In fact, I, last week in the Washington Times, it's my column amazingly I I don't know if this is et Cetera hut the New York, times, Reached Out this weekend and asked me to write a column which I think they're running in the next heir to pitted against someone who thinks states should be bailed out. I make the argument I give four concise reasons why. You and I and the rest of the federal tax payers should particularly not be bailing out places like Illinois or new. York state places. That were screwed up Wong before corona virus came around particularly after all that we went through. Nine plus years ago to get Wisconsin back on the right track, we certainly as federal taxpayers shouldn't be forced to bail out other states that did make the kind of positive. Choices, we did to put in place lasting reforms. We're in talk about that. Then we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA. Talk about a few things that are unrelated. The coronavirus say there's a sigh of relief out there I'm going to get to the economy. I'm going to get to corona virus and my thoughts on it, but. When, I'm also going to talk about the two thousand twenty election and in particular I know we've talked about this before, but talk about Joe Biden.

Awards Season: Oscar Nominations
"We have the golden globes recently today we get the critics choice awards tomorrow very early in the morning they will be announcing the academy award nominations so it's the awards season some times we can glean what will probably happen with the Academy Awards by what happens in the golden globes not always sometimes many times it's wall has been monitoring the critics choice awards and I think we should start there to see if maybe the critics choice awards are either going or falling in line with the golden globes or offering a different message if you will as far as what should be honored this year from first look the critics have got a much more on point and then lie with me then the glow okay let's go down some the category Best Actor yes Joaquin Phoenix for joker given that Best Actress Renee Zellweger for Judy yes best supporting actor Brad Pitt for once upon a time in Hollywood surprises there yep best supporting actress Laura Dern for marriage story he didn't see it heard was okay best young actor romaine Griffin Davis for the judge a rabid movie don't know if there are a lot of kids related films on there but Hey sure give it to him best acting ensemble the Irishman art is a good okay good let's look let's let's slow down and talk about that but what I don't know if they're put it this way is far as acting goes I was very underwhelmed by the Irishman I I really think people are more impressed by the names will histories and legacies of the people involved in the movie as opposed to the actual performances most people were saying that they really like the the understated performance of Joe Pesci yeah it was nice he didn't really cost a lot he didn't beat anyone with a baseball bat but as far as an acting performance I don't think was all that special I don't think Robert de Niro's performance as the Irishman was special it wasn't anything that I said wow that was vintage Robert Dinero it wasn't like there was any particular moment or monologue or passage the people will come away and say we're gonna be quoting that for years we can quote the godfather we can quote good fellas in an area casino what have you there wasn't really anything all that special quotable about the Irishman as far as the ensemble cast it was great to have all these big names together yeah but they had big names together in the Expendables did make it a great movie big names who were to gather it almost seemed like he was with one last ride together for these particular group of actors for this particular genre and I had heard all the hype in I'm a guy who loves the godfather yeah I'm a guy who loves casino and Goodfellas varying degrees but I loved the genre as a whole love the sopranos so that's something I I I know this genre I appreciate the genre when I saw the Irishman it was really weird it was weird what they did to Robert De Niro and his allies making them blue or whatever so he looked like the actual person it was not necessary they could have chosen a different actor if you're gonna do all that was extracting I did like the fact that it's so it's a movie based on real people real incidents in history and it almost quite like the have the story line and as real events happened it breaks away in the show you this person was actually killed by a bullet to the head nineteen seventy one or whatever and I'll show you a still frame of the actual crime scene or something like that that's something I enjoy it but as far as the acting performances there were not we talk about Star Wars hi Scott Walker same thing in the sense of there were no wow moments for me there was nothing which said to me is like wow I've never seen that before no they were getting killed by basically getting whacked like okay we seen people get whacked like this before because they've already told all those stories just changing the name to fictional people another movie so what we see the Irishman which is based on true events and everything not special I didn't think the performances were special that's not a number that are best acting ensemble right okay I would rather Avengers with that because as far as I'm concerned the acting by Robert Downey junior in Avengers in game was stellar okay well I mean look got it and maybe that's why Avengers in game got best action movie finally can best visual effects of got best animated feature is difficult yes yeah best costume design yes Ruthie Carter for dolomite is my name give it to him let's stop right there if you haven't seen dolomite is my name please see it isn't available on Netflix I think you will view Eddie Murphy in a whole different light a whole new light any have best comedy yeah I agree Eddie Murphy has not only reinvented himself but in this particular performance he's just an actor he's not telling jokes like a comedian he is embodying Rudy ray Moore someone completely different and it's telling you the story of how Rudy ray Moore had to reinvent himself from musician to stage performer two eight kind of comedian telling almost wraps stories on stage right right if you know the history and this is a quintessential LA movie in the sense of Rudy ray Moore is inextricably linked to the history of arts and entertainment in Los Angeles yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah you will recognize the landmarks and everything and that is why eighty Murphy deservedly so also got the lifetime achievement award other film awards go to Quentin Tarantino for once upon a time in Hollywood no surprise a Best Director it was a tie Sam Mendes for nineteen seventeen and bomb June hole for parasite can we just go ahead and assume given Hollywood's reaction and also the foreign correspondents reaction to nineteen seventeen that that's probably going to be best picture Best Actor definitely nominated tomorrow for the Oscar nominations yeah we'll probably will win and I say that for this reason for the foreign correspondents association for the golden globes to give nineteen seventeen best drama award what are the ward was and it had not even been released in theaters yet at that point bright I just said to me that it leaves the Hollywood portion critics correspondence whatever they pretty much made up their mind which says to me Hollywood as far as the voting academy members have pretty much made up their mind and they've probably already decided that this is going to be the movie I've heard nothing but superlatives about it I haven't seen it but I'm just reading the tea leaves it is going to get the nomination but I'm saying if I were to place any money nineteen seventy this Best Picture and Best Director just because of all these other indications I'm getting I agree totally agree best sci-fi or horror which is in an Oscar related category not to to my knowledge but us it's good thank I I I I saw the movie everything was great yeah so I'll be in Emma Jordan Peele fan but I did think the movie is great I do appreciate how he tells very different stories that's the story we haven't seen before I can I can watch it and say like wow that's something different is not the typical horror stories come to typical sci fi story has a little twist at the end is what he usually is going to do now is going to be known for that in the way that M. night Shyamalan is known for that I can appreciate what he does I just didn't think the movie was spectacular yeah but I don't know who would love you to hear it I don't know what was up again so when we come back we'll continue with these critics choice awards and also forecast possibly with coming tomorrow morning with the Oscar nominations this the

‘Skywalker’ Box-Office Draw Suffers From Lukewarm Reviews
"Who's a strong opening night for the new Star Wars movie the rise of Scott Walker brought in an estimated forty million dollars at the north American box office that's not as much as the two previous films in the trilogy made on their opening Thursday's reviews for rise of Scott Walker has been
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Review
"Star Wars the rise of sky Walker opens in theaters tomorrow the third and final film in the latest Star Wars trilogy the end of the road in so many ways for Star Wars especially for this storyline involving Luke Skywalker which all started with the first Star Wars movie back in nineteen seventy seven which I guess in terms of the Star Wars story is actually the fourth chapter and if you find that a little bit confusing you probably still have absorb some of the famous lines from the movies like use the force or do or do not there is no try or Luke I am your father which I know I know the line is actually no I am your father you can tell I'm sort of like walking a tight rope today because I feel like I have two of the greatest Star Wars fans in front of me right now but outside of that JJ Abrams is the director of the rise of sky Walker and just imagine that kind of pressure he's got the tough job of bringing it all in for a landing as I mentioned chasing Garber and Kathleen Newman remaining they went to a special preview screening of Star Wars yesterday before virtually anybody else they're here live in the studio dying to tell you all about it hello my friends Hey how's it going I feel like I said I don't have any good Star Wars greetings is there a good star was greeting hi yeah Jason is wearing a full tee shirts and has the charger beings Baba bobble head well the characters where's your yak give anything Kathleen you know and it's all in my heart something deep down yeah the forces in me so let's talk about this you get a chance to go to the press screening for the new Star Wars yesterday you guys go to these things all the time dozens even a week Jason where even the jaded film critics of Toronto a little bit excited to see Star Wars I mean look everybody's little **** it only comes of this but I think this is actually pretty good to go into this film with a certain level of trepidation I think that if we go in sort of too excited him to sort of objectivity we should be open to its terms I think that a lot of the film critics don't Nestle do that all the time but I think that most people when I'm with the appropriate level of a mix of objectivity in slate excitement of their there for an event Kevin were you excited I was very excited I got there a little bit later than Jason and I felt a little bit of the excitement but once the movie started it was dead silent like this is not a spoiler but when Landau courtesy and gets on screen for the first time Billy Dee Williams I lost my mind and everyone else is like silent which is what it's about which is a huge advantage I mean that like obviously leasing again with public and this is very much I mean it's like man to man the phones at Taft if you see them press for him to kind of a miserable experience you just have to get used to that but a film like this if you're ever going to see this movie theater on the big screen the because you can with an audience to get in the indictment so let's do it I can tell you I can hear you yelling your radio right now Jason I'll start with you Star Wars the rise of sky Walker how was fine suddenly I called the crime you went on Twitter for those over and it look let's let's be one hundred percent clear this is kind of the second and a half ending we've had we had returned the jet I which ended everything and we had episode three which was supposed to end everything Lucas's and then kind of the last job I had a great ending it's like the work done that of those you should go see it I'm not going to worry about it was the last movie that the the universe was going to be bigger and that we weren't going to be focused on the small story and then within us there was the whole notion that the myth of Scott Walker would continue as you see the kids playing with action figure and the kid who picks up the broom with a force you realize that this is not something that's patcher or matrilineal that is going to be bigger than this one little family we did have a question that comes by way remember these characters you really left we're gonna bring those back and focus entirely on that I'll make the story in some ways smaller so it's galactic in scope and yet smaller narrative scope and that is it's doing what it's supposed to do he was hired to do a job which the cap off this saga and it does it and it's fine but that makes it a little bit less interesting a commitment let's get into that in a second Jason says fine Kathleen I mean I think shockingly Jason I kind of agree here I'm I liked it I was very entertained I had a good time even with the jaded critics who were not like matching my energy level I agree that it's not great there is a fine as to what I do think that there's there's a little bit of like a course correction and that they seem to be doing with the last chat I so yeah he JJ made the world a little smaller and really abandon some of the really interesting stuff that Ryan Johnson had set up in the last chat I which is frustrating and makes it not a great movie I think he was trying to please everybody and trying to please those fans that were so upset at the last I and in doing that the narrative suffered and it's also just trying to be a lot try to be a lot of things to a lot of people and then I think it is in any of those things to anybody for example are two foot to a deep in the weeds and lord knows I cut but the way the blade of grass scene six so when I saw the fact that was not mentioned I'm a little upset and the deal is that let people think that this was structured that they knew exactly we're gonna beat I mean they always talk about Lucas having these twelve movie idea sort of written out for some of these are complete stripped away from looks as vision bat that goes without saying but what happened was JJ wrote the the force awakens as an empty are there was no ending there's going to jail just fantastic to look at openings right everybody knows that what has what he's really good at is setting the stage not traded endings hi everyone also knows self admittedly I mean he got in all those interviews actually talks about how this was going to be real tons of room because then he never was supposed to direct the film right other directions where involved actually like a so the deal is that when he wrote the first film they didn't know where it was going to go and it was one of those hand off it's like I'm going to set up the stage hand it off to you and you're going to finish this the second verse of the song that's what Ryan Johnson does run Johnson took all these ingredients and did something for many of us super interesting in super a complex and did essentially ministry talked about what is it to be found the end of of the force awakens is ray handing a lightsaber Luke Skywalker legally saying let's go and the opening shot of last chat I is illuminated at one yeah the last film the film after that episode eight is Luke Skywalker take fully superimposed over shoulder in other words I've been handing off the story to you and Ryan's first thing he does like let's not worry about this story that's not the interesting thing the interesting thing is getting into the nature the metaphysics of the deeper stuff but the force this film goes okay I can't remember the last thing you said okay we're not going to worry as much about this stuff remember these characters you're like let's get him together with all gonna be the same ship they're all gonna gonna ventures together but I want to point out the Kathy when you say that JJ Abrams who has had the incredibly unenviable task of trying to finish Star Wars trying to and Star Wars I I want to really highlight there that is an unenviable task it's even if you're not great even if you're amazing endings try ending the greatest film franchise in history so how does it do Kathleen as an ending to the Star Wars story that we now I mean I thought it was satisfying it's an it's an ending and it answers a lot of questions and as we know Los fans I feel you like we know that change is not answering questions and doing and ray yam asset is flying in and I think that this is just whether you like this ending and the answers that they give you but they give you answers and they give you a very definitive ending and you know some people already have set hi stag JJ Abrams is over party was trending on Twitter yeah it's I mean no one's gonna be happy about anything but I think that he did a good enough job I was entertained and it is it like a nice wrapped up and is it is no one going to be happy with this look at there's always gonna be people upset about this because we care right through well for lots and lots of reasons to ours is pretty fundamental to popular culture and the people have a vested interest and they have in a typical fan communities not everybody but a very vocal minority believes they have ownership over these characters and when they want things to go at a certain way this feeling as for this film actually goes towards a certain direction of giving them what they want and then they end up not wanting what they will think that they wanted that's one thing but I will say that these two fundamental things about changing his his course one lens flares you dialed the heck down with one foot above is one thing I'm like okay I I love that you love letters was god bless you but there's a big thing is he's a red herring you talk about lost as he's a guy who like put a shark and have a logo on a shark and they only got this has to mean something smoke monster has to mean something that's just his step he's trying to trick you a little bit and this film would be much more interesting of those red herrings were not red herrings but actually things that happened so what happens is he consistently in this film gives you something and it's one of those moments the other two phones have moms like oh my god you can do that all my god you can shoot a laser blast haven't hang in the air that's kind of cool all my god you can take a ship and light speed through another ship I never thought you could do that and this film every moment but there was like oh my god that's don't know let's start back that isn't what you think it was ha ha ha I'd something I went I was gonna say second I was going to say that I thought that was but it was it was actually the opposite of this but it makes me really excited to watch it to figure out what the red hearings are and and or not yeah that's not as well as a good teams but I will say that some of those those on inspiring moments that you felt like we're missing I felt them I felt like I was a kid again watching some of this these action sequences and some of that the lights ever seen her so beautiful and big and yeah will transfer to transport you back to your child because I was going to ask if we what we talked a little bit I should stress to set this up by the way I'm I'm speaking which is a corporate Cathy Newman remaining ever talk about the new Star Wars movie rise of Scott Walker what to do right I think the cast is so strong and I think that Jason alluded to it but putting them together like you've got Oscar Isaac daisy Ridley and John by a guy as fan PO and ray and they're together for most of the film and that is a

"scott walker" Discussed on CATS Roundtable
"Good Morning America. This is the cats roundtable sean cats Martinez here Sunday morning what's going on in our country with winning is governor Scott Walker two term governor of Wisconsin and he's been in office for twenty five years and governor this the First state with my country so you're out there working state by State County by county and tell tell America this balanced budget amendment complaint similar language what does it do what does it mean when people think about the here you know trillions of dollars in debt people's eyes glaze over and I tell them it's simple it's like someone onto your family was making less than fifty grand a year carrying three hundred thousand dollars in debt. You'd have an intervention you'd have sort of crisis intervention you'd help that person stops spending more than they were taken in that the federal government's like they're spending way more than they take in the carrying a massive debt it's only getting bigger and not too distant future I used to think it would be a long time away the generation and it'll affect is sitting right here they're right in our midst there amongst us there are kids and our grandkids in the federal government's not GonNa do it I think this is the one thing we're bipartisanship has truly a bad thing and that is Republicans and Democrats Democrats may be Wa- responsible but Republicans the responsibility in in Washington it's got to be done in the states and that's what we're doing so what does it mean that two thirds of the states pass an Amendment saying that the federal government has to have a balanced budget they have to do it well it's a two-part steps so the first part of two thirds of the it's it then it creates this convention where they work the language out in the second part is is the way it's always been done that the latter part of in that is it still has to go back to the states to be edify just like we ratified each of the previous amendments out there but in the past even though the founders great founders country gave us two ways to do only one used that was through the Congress to thirds we're saying the congress is not going to act on this it's not in their interest act on it they like spending more and more and more and more and helps them get elected for various reasons we need to rein in the states have to be the leaders well there's a lot of commonsense candidates out there in the Democratic Party right now twenty there are a lot of candidates say well let's spend a trillion here trillion man a trillionaire like like money's going out of style are they getting vast printer in Washington when Margaret Thatcher wisely said a long time ago the problem with socialism is sooner or later your run of other people's money to spend and we're we're at it whereas the federal government is finally caught up where you know all the for any of us are getting closer to retirement you look in the Social Security Trust Fund there's nothing there you look at not just the debt but there's this big open holes in his more and more of the baby boom generation retires the money's just not there out there we don't want to give are in the same way nobody WANNA give their kids a household or business that was way into bankruptcy that's what we're doing to our kids and our grandkids with government about you know meeting new realize I should put the average person out there saying well they'll work it out work it out tell work it out I mean we're getting to a point that you might not be able to work out what you're exactly right John it's one of those where things compound so when chilly out bipartisan is when George W Bush was President the federal debt was about five trillion it doubled during his presidency about ten trade Obama starts ten trillion by the time he's done eight years later it nearly doubled at nineteen point six trillion currently it's over twenty one trillion if we keep compounding again I think even anybody listening out there can understand that again if your kid your your your sister other your nephew someone in your family if they got debt that keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger at some point you just can't pay it off and how long have we been working on balanced budget amendment states a longtime Ronald Reagan push this back when he was president he got it up to thirty two of the thirty four states needed unfortunately when he left there was a big void and it dropped all the way down to just twelve states in two thousand twelve just a few years ago it was just twelve states a great leader who's with US today learn ends and then a whole bunch of grassroots activists across the country got it back up to twenty eight and we're trying to get the last few states done over the next few years so we can save you when we have occasionally ever bumps but the the unemployment rates the lowest it's been since nineteen sixty-nine wages are up Stephen Moore the other day in the Wall Street Journal wrote a great piece pointing out that the typical middle class family in this country his saved either through tax cuts or higher wages more than four thousand dollars you're not hearing that anywhere else but four thousand dollars that's real money and despite the fact that the media constantly says Oh you know the tax cuts only went to this group or that group fact of matter is Oh classwork in America were big winners under this presidency and it's why the last thing you WanNa do is screw it up Socialist Like Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden Twenty five years in public service eight years as governor what's next for Scott Walker we're doing a bunch of projects things like the balance the budget working for fair redistricting countering Eric holder working with the National Taxpayer's Union and eventually right after the election cycle we're going to help young America's founding eight on the right side of things we do a whole lot more to make sure the next generation of kids understand that Freedom is a lot better than socialism they were also involved in critical school choices and religious freedom tell us a little bit about that we've got another case in front of the Supreme Court involving institution nobody flinches when I say that to me the same should be true if you want your kids to go through twelve in the end you should ultimately be able to send.
