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

"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. I would argue and again you want to join this conversation. Join us on the acushnet mortgage talk and text line at four one four seven nine nine eleven thirty four one four seven nine nine eleven thirty We come back I want to tell you. I think there's four specific reasons why the state should not be bailed out by the federal government should not bail out.

"Why don't you make sure that you you find a way? The Monitor spaces like bathrooms in that so that everybody's not crowded in those areas and the good news is for people like him and many others for the grocery stores, the pharmacies other places that are deemed essential. They had overwhelmingly been able to operate safely because they've used safe and sound and reasonable standards, not only to protect their employs, but to protect their customers. To me when I went out is the best thing can do is make the case to help businesses. Particularly small businesses reopened again is layout ways that they can safely and responsibly open again. Get the government out of the way because in the end. The government's not going to reopen the economy. The market is if employs feel safe, and if customers ultimately feel safe, though come back if they won't if they don't, they won't. Jerry bought, and I were talking about this before the three o'clock hour I actually think it's good that the president, and even the coronavirus task force, or not giving briefings every day because I think it added undue pressure, I think it made the public feel that were even under greater threat. Because we were constantly getting updated instead of saying hey, let's use some commonsense. We'll help give guidelines to direct people on. We're not gonNA. Dictate at the government can't do this alone. We need to include everyone in these common sense solutions. Paul, you're right. It's GonNa take time to me. It's Kinda like when we were kids.

It's not gonNA. Flip a switch and they're gonNA turn on right away, but it's why all along I've been arguing literally for more than a month in my writings every Friday in the Washington Times that we needed one before the president. Did I said we need to have a task force reopening the America's economy because we can't just start worrying about that after we worry about the coronavirus we've got to be doing. You've got to walk and Chew Gum. one at the same time we do the other and we can do that. We're Americans. We can do that. We can do that here in Wisconsin. You can do it in Michigan and and I don't know about Illinois, but they can do it in Iowa, and even in Minnesota and we can do it across America We can do this, but but people need to understand why and we need to govern governor the way and there's another really really big.

"This morning is one of the smartest guys I know. And we have with this ex-governor from Wisconsin Scott Walker. How how are you governor? I'm super you're one of the smartest people I know in or out of politics. So Burkett Governor. It was an interesting weekend politics especially in democratic politics in twenty four hours to whole world change. Bloomberg fell apart. Everybody else fell off the shelf. Tell us you know politics pretty well especially from the Mid West. Tell us how you see sings Shakya. Yeah this is just amazing. It was one of the most amazing Turnarounds particularly when you think about earned media. Joe Biden didn't have the money Bloomberg Daddy didn't have the organization attorney did but in the end you saw a really the the full force of the Democrat establishment coalesce behind Joe Biden because they were scared to death of Bernie. Sanders is as much as many of them embrace socialism. They didn't want it from a guy who's on record sympathizing with communist dictators Certainly in the past and even in some of his policies now so you saw them clear the lane They got Mayor people to check out and and Senator Amy Klobuchar or out of course. Bloomberg along the way with his two failed debate show. You really couldn't abate his way out of a wet paper bag and that opened the door for a clear contrast between Biden the more pragmatic choice of many older Democrats in the primary voting system. And of course Bernie The democratic socialist who appealed to some of the younger voters out there add in the long tradition. That Joe Biden had of appealing to African American voters. And you can see why not only did well in South Carolina but one big by any measure on Super Tuesday. This is completely turned their their nomination process. Upset out well I mean when we saw each other last week I always had a feeling that the Democratic Party somewhere orange was just gonNA screw sanders but how everything else fell. Plot was unbelievable. And we're really was and and you're right and it's one of those where this is one of the I think missing headlines out there wasn't just that the establishment got behind Biden without a doubt they were worried about losing the White House burning. But I think it's more fundamental wasn't just worries about losing the White House. It was about losing the House that really worried and all the other down ballot you saw and this is I guess. Tested the voters. They didn't just by actually spoke to voters. And voters responded. That there aren't gonNA WE'RE GONNA lose Bernie not at the top. We'RE GONNA lose all the way down in for Democrats who overwhelmingly care about the power structure. What they want is in the twenty twenty Seco-. This is the first time in twenty years. The presidential elections the same time there is a census in they know that whoever's in power at the state local level are the people who are going to set the boundaries even at the congressional level for the next decade. And that's really more than principle more than policy more than politics. This is about power for the Democrats and let's talk about the state in the Senate and Congress are People Gonna Forgive Nancy Pelosi during the vote. Democratic for Congress wedding there is a huge pushback amongst voters and a lot of these swing district and I only in the Mid West but even in Stanton Island for example in New York a New York City Newark. Stater you're and California you look in the Mid West number of seats where Republicans lost twenty eighteen in part because they lost more suburban Type voters now in the twenty twenty psycho all these Democrats who want an eighteen have to stand up and acknowledged that even though they promised they were going to get things done. They promised they re put politics instead. What you've seen is really two years under Pelosi of House. Democrats doing nothing except impeachment and I think in the end. It's why you see Democrats on the run and why you see. President trump getting unprecedented levels of of support in these primaries. Even though he has no real opposition he is getting big numbers. Bigger than Obama did at this stage of in his presence reelection. This is really a good sign. We got to counter that though and know that in the end because of redistricting because of all these boundaries being sick the Democrats are gonNA pull out all the stops. The Supreme Court is Politics Stein to hit that. Well I can't believe that I am. I can't believe it I guess. Sorry as it is but it's it's remarkable if you think back a few years ago. Chuck Schumer Being the the leader the Senate Democrats what he said about two members of the. Us Supreme Core is really unprecedented. I don't think anyone can deny that. That didn't sound like a threat to me. That's why you have three separate branches of government Certainly we can complain about Rulings But that's why you have separate branches and and that's why the judiciary is impartial. We're not elected. They're not at the federal level they're not members of parties there to uphold the constitution and the laws during acted and Regardless of who nominated them in the end. They're doing what they're supposed to do. They should actually be free of threats. But that's really where things have gone. You've gotten so out of control of that. This has become commonplace in and sadly not surprising. Scott Walker what are you doing lately? Well one of the things. We're working on the national. Republican trust the N. R. R. T. DOT. Org is where people can find more and the reason I got involved with two simple words Eric holder. I just mentioned the establishment is can't behind Biden. The reason they did was more than just the White House. It's because they're worried about losing the house and worried about long term What the next decade is going to be like. We're trying to make sure that Eric holder in his allies has grown his Gerrymandered the way into permanent power. We have fair maps. You See New York state but you see it all across the country if we have maps that keep communities of interest attack. We've constitutionally strong and concise districts are candidates can win. We've got better candidates in a better message. We just gotTa make sure they don't gerrymanders out of out of the possibility so you're working hard in that absolutely. Yeah the The N. R. R. T. Dot Org. That's the National Republican district. Trust working on some other things to try to get a bounce budget amendment enacted working with the National Taxpayer's Union and other groups But right now. One of the most critical things we can do is push back against colder. Who's been working on this for years? He Got Barack Obama to put all of his organizing for America. All of his name's funds resources into this redistricting effort. They claim in many many media outlets that the for fair maps that their own group filed with the irs a form that says their purpose their mission is favourably position. Democrats in the redistricting process. That's why they they don't fight redistricting in New York or Massachusetts New Jersey or annoy. They only go to Publican states In the end we gotta push back in a New York state. People can help out with the trust because it's a good way to force them to do. What the voters said. They wanted back in twenty fourteen that has had objective process. And they're not doing it now they haven't done in the past. And that's why we gotta be standing up and fighting back against holder and company President Trump. Your Midwest you weren't Midwest Governor. How do the Mid West farmers and feel about president trump is still supporting him? One hundred percent absolutely. He is unbelievable levels of support. Roy is again. Many of the elite particularly in the Washington bubble somehow think on trade and tariffs that there's backlash With the farming community the opposite is true. They believe that this is a and I joined them in that with. This president is fighting to get fair. Trade deals not only for manufacturers but for farmers we saw with the trade deal with Canada and Mexico under NAFTA dairy farmers not only in Wisconsin Minnesota but even in New York state. We're getting a really getting the raw ended the deal. When it came down Karaoke Canada he held out in that trade. Deal to get a better deal to level the playing field. I think when you see examples like that now what he's doing with China and other parts of the world they know that he's fighting for them and sandwich manufacturing workers. They know that he's fighting hard. This is a guy who keeps his promises. His numbers have gone up since impeachment. Because I think mid Westerners where a lot of these swing states are at midwesterners believe in fairness and they believe that. He's doing what he said he was going to do. At the impeachment is just a partisan witch hunt and Oddly Enough Democrats are going backfire with all they've done to try to attack him independent persuadable. Voters just want people who get the job done. It's why I WanNa Rico with more votes than I did the first time. I think the same thing's going to happen with the President Governor Scott Walker. Thank you for coming onto a show today and God bless you and everything you do for the American people and let's catch up again real soon. Found great keep by for freedom. Thanks man thank you. This is the catch roundtable. We'll be right back..
President Trump pardons former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich
"The issue is former Illinois governor rod Blagojevich he was freed from prison after he was granted they commuted sends by president trump and yes yes yes yes I know this was not a presidential pardon he was commuted there is a difference pardon means basically you're absolved of all crimes you get to go Scot free that's a pardon whether it's done by a president or or governor etcetera being commuted means it's just changing the type of punishment you still guilty but your charge less for example in again this is not applied to Broadway bridge which is to just to be clear it's like if you were given the death penalty and the president commutes you're sentenced to a life sentence you still guilty is still in prison but the penalty was in essence reduced that was the case for Robert boy **** the former governor of Illinois was serving a fourteen year prison sentence for taking bribes back in two thousand nine to sell the Illinois Senate seat that was vacated by Barack Obama the blood going which is the governor Obama wins the presidency back in two thousand eight Senate seats open the steel line from Scott Walker when he became governor Robert go age it's basically just said Hey this seat is open for business my friends actually he didn't say that you don't he said I have the core here he basically said and I have to believe myself out I've got this thing and it's a bleep in golden ticket after all it is the Chicago way this is how politics is done in Illinois well he was caught and he was caught rabbit my goodness you thought OJ was guilty as sin you thought the evidence was overwhelming there I I I can't think of anything more cut and dry then look away which is guilt no one denies he was guilty but it was sentenced to fourteen years in prison spend behind bars since two thousand eleven until yesterday president trump basically we descends letting go Scot free
Who Will Win The Iowa Caucuses? It's Anyone's Bet
"The Iowa caucuses are just five days away and it is still anybody's race out there Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden or the current front runners there according to recent polls any club which are a little bit more in and he put a janitor trailing closely behind to find out what voters want from the democratic candidates pod save America co host John Fabbro went across the country looking for answers holding a series of focus groups with voters that Democrats need to win over their highlighted in the second season of the wilderness is other podcast and fabric served as rock Obama's head speechwriter from two thousand five to twenty thirteen is here at the table with us so we heard from Mitch McConnell overnight into the evening that he doesn't think he has the votes currently to keep witnesses out of the impeachment trial right but when you're out there talking to voters this impeachment even come up it did not I I was talking to folks in late October when all of the trump administration officials are getting deposed by the house where'd you go I went to Arizona Wisconsin Florida and Pennsylvania okay just wing states made a and the only thing they can say about impeachment was here a lot of people are testifying for a long time yeah that's it and try and I think president trump did something bad in Ukraine so they're not following along now at the time they weren't so it is it is divided you put is not really blue red Democrat Republican it's like paying attention not paying attention it's the biggest divide in politics and you know people will say that of people who don't pay attention to politics when Donald Trump as president maybe they're apathetic maybe they're ignorant that's not what I heard at all we'll tell stories about healthcare costs they told her about gun control I once I'm done on climate change their problem is when they turn on their televisions they think that politics is all about people who are getting paid to yell at each other yeah and and nothing's breaking through the billing did you talk to John you know talk to trust voters Obama vote yes so the interesting records I talked to in Milwaukee where the Obama trump orders Obama fervor for about about the neighborhood for Donald Trump and then they voted for democratic candidate in Wisconsin in twenty eighteen saying that switch they seem like very different candidates so I asked them and they said I voted for Obama because he was change one guy actually said he was an old white guy so I voted for Obama and then that guy but it wasn't like I said yeah and then I got voted for trump and then they voted for Tony Evers was the governor of Wisconsin right now because he was a change from Scott Walker what was changed in trouble some change so who's changed now hi Joe Biden if by by this perspective you know it's interesting they they keep wanting change because they feel that no one in government has actually done anything to tangibly improve their lives and so they are at least in Wisconsin those voters are looking for someone to be different right but I was surprised a lot of the voters you talk to really only knew a couple of candidates right they only knew Joe Biden Bernie Sanders a couple little as before what does that say to you John it says that most voters don't pay attention to this process until the very end and these are people who are gonna vote right like every single persons and definitely never and twenty twenty most of them did not like trump that much in fact most of the Obama trump voters actually we're very disappointed with their but the three front runners in most polls are all white men yeah and you've got women in forty five warning clover shar who have very similar ideas to some of the people a little higher in the polls what explains that gender divide out there is sexism playing a role still I think sexism absolutely plays a role when I ask people you know do you think it's harder for a woman to become president or gay candidate or someone over seventy or democratic socialist ask all those questions you know personally everyone said no I'm I'd be fine with all that when I asked what about people you know right then they said yeah I think people would have trouble with you know a woman running a democratic socialist so you start you start hearing like to believe our new Quinnipiac poll Mike Bloomberg cracked the top five for the first time yeah that eight percent nationally yeah sort of that's a couple billion dollars okay yeah well I mean look at times tire he's not right same lucky's but quite a bit of money yeah what do you think that sets I think it I think it does have to do with all the money spending anytime sire spent a lot of money too but it's all pales in comparison to Michael Bloomberg so I think running that many have that many places will get you a bounce the question is Mike Mike Bloomberg if you want to be president has to be a real candidate you can't just run an entire campaign on television I don't
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

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

"Inside politics at conservative review. He's our roundtable guest here for the opening our the shows we break down what we saw in the two thousand eighteen midterms. I think a story that is going to go largely untold because it's not convenient to the people running the Republican party to tell it is the deconstruction of Scott Walker. And when I turned in the original manuscript for rules for patriots in two thousand thirteen the book came out in the in February of two thousand fourteen we debuted at CPAC and a book signing right alongside the Scott Walker at CPAC, actually, and he was a rockstar and Walker was one of the instant hits out of the twenty ten tea party wave and then he survived a recall of his legislature, which was a referendum on his governorship his own recall. And he did it because he's he's really the only elected Republican official in my lifetime. I know of that took on what I call the phone. Or stools of American progressivism took it on and dismantled it and one of them is in a public, employees sector unions, and he dismantled that infrastructure in his home state of Wisconsin. And that's why you know, when when you go after a culture idle and you smash in front of them, they they get mad and their mob accuracy tactics that we see the left do all the time. Now, kind of debuted in your home state over Scott Walker's this stuff went mainstream in the Democratic Party. And when I turned into first manuscript for rules for patriots in two thousand thirteen the publisher sent it back to me and said, are you to are you endorsing Scott Walker and you're coming caucus already? And I said why he said because this reads like a love letter to Scott Walker. Do you have any other examples of Republicans doing it? Right. That you want to site. And so here we are five years later. He lost yesterday to a guy that that that looks like he just got tenured and humanities department at the university of Wisconsin. And I'm not kidding you.

And in Wisconsin where the Republican incumbent is fighting to save his seat. And Ryan young is our seeing national correspondent who's watching voting traffic outside of polling precinct in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Ryan, let's start where you are. And then tell me more about that race. Well, absolutely Scott Walker's trying to run this is literally his third time running. And of course, it's going. It's Tony Evers who someone who's going neck and neck with talking to people who said we're doing too much about the stats here. They really feel like it's all about the issues. One woman's hit for us for her at least in her family. She wants to talk about the idea of wage growth. She thinks it's stagnant. She wants to see more money coming home to her because she says, she's kind of stuck. She doesn't really want to vote for the saving that's been going on but taxes are low. She's also worried about her health care. She said those are the issues that are really hurting Americans especially out here. And then she talked about the idea of how the tears are packing some of her family members because of the farmland. So when you hear about issues like that you understand the back and forth that's going on here. So there are some people who believe Scott Walker was going to be the next star. He almost he ran for president. And then there's the idea people wanting change in the area. And then there's the impact of look we're just thirty minutes outside of Milwaukee. You know, Harley Davidson had the impact that it had after he had to lay off so many workers. There's a big conversation here. Then you have Paul Ryan's seat. That's up another Senate seat. That's up a lot of conversation about what will change. But the one thing that two people told me that they don't want to have all the fighting that they've seen over the last few months in Washington continue. They said there's too many things that United says Americans. They want to see the change at the ballot box because they believe this is the best part of us in terms of coming out and vote and saying together being struck and today, Brooke despite the weather people have been showing up in force love it all up and down the east coast Le terrain, but hopefully that won't deter people from exercising that good old.

Tea party anti-american anti-government but they never said that about Occupy Wall street and they never say that about antifa hero people, that are openly saying the destruction of America the western way of life.

But I don't think that's the reason why you're not, calling them anti government look how the tea party the immediately the. Coke brothers coke brothers here's antifa being supported by the democratic socialists of America you are currently running people in, the Democratic Party that are openly endorsing, democratic socialists of America they were involved in a hostage situation and yet you're telling everyone that they're not radical they are saying that they want, an end to capitalism but you are, telling the American people that's not radical How you cover, anybody that goes to speak at a at a university And they're not allowed to speak because what they're fascists but you do not cover the antifascist that are breaking windows and throwing molotov cocktails in any.

"And you should do this and here's how you can forge those ties with the Republican party one month later, Tina tens the NRA convention in Nashville, Tennessee, and she and her boss the KGB operative, a guy named Alexander torsion meet with governor Scott Walker, and there is a report from mother Jones. That again, I'm independently confirmed this mother Jones, generally reliable. If liberal reporting that Scott Walker greeted her in Russian and then butane a- subsequently attended Scott Walker's presidential campaign launch. You may remember that Scott Walker ran for president for about eight seconds in the in the two thousand sixteen cycle. So if this is to be believed, one of the tendrils of Russia's efforts to influence the twenty sixteen presidential election began not with Donald Trump and sort of taking advantage of a useful idiot. As I presume, but with Scott Walker with a mainstream governor of the state of Wisconsin and the fact that Wisconsin is the tipping point state in the twenty sixteen presidential election. Again. You know, I don't lie. You know me, you know that this is a sober show that shoes conspiracy theories that's a terrifying thought. So yeah, Tina. Then Scott Walker goes nowhere. And then Boutin starts attending Trump event. She asks a question about the relationship between Trump and Putin at a at a live Trump QNA. He answer right? And she reports back to her boss that Trump is pro Russian in October of twenty. Sixteen butane a messages. Her boss over Twitter. I just get a stop at the idea that private messages on Twitter or how Russian agents of correspond with with their boss, but he's in the hospital, and she writes them and says, we made our bet I am following our game. I will be connecting the people from the prayer breakfast to this group, and that's because they attended this Trump prayer. Breakfast, yesterday's dinner showed that American society is broken in relation to Russia. This is now the dividing line of opinions, the crucial one in the election race. The Republicans are for us Democrats against fifty fifty. Our move here is very important. And so now this is the first domino. It would surprise me if this is the sole domino. Yeah, it's interesting because we were just talking about like, oh, you know, the connections are the last thing. You know, the collusion, whatever yet. Hopefully this is.
