Army officer tells impeachment inquiry of gaps in Trump's Ukraine transcript
"Me let's talk impeachment investigation the first official with first hand knowledge of that phone call with Ukraine between president trump and the Ukraine president has now spoken to congressional investigators New York times has some more details on this army lieutenant colonel Alexander vin men top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council testified that on the call the president claimed they were recordings of former vice president Joe Biden discussing corruption in that was discussed during the call that was not part of the actual transcript that we have seen so far times reports that vin made also recalled the Ukrainian president's a landscape made explicit mention on the call of the energy company where Biden son hunter served on the board man man tried to add those details to the reconstructed White House transcript of the call but according to the times he's edits were not included and it's not clear why so now we have this decorated war veteran he would argue a credible witness right who is on the phone call with some testimony by the way testimony that seems to contradict what one of these other folks Gordon someone had said he's the US ambassador to the E. U. he said something a little bit different so now you have another person testifying in this case a vote by the way starts tomorrow yeah this is some interesting developments you're the fact that that we have some people trying to call out the the the person was getting past testimony venom and and his record is impeccable apparently and if you saying something different and the transcript shows something difference there has to be a reconciling at some point what that reveals when asked actually have your center Ron Johnson on the show the ten o'clock hour we're gonna ask my question because he's been very steadfast and saying well the transcript speaks for itself well I guess the question is does it Sean Duffy former congressman he's one of the ones who questioned vin means credibility he was on CNN he's a paid contributor now CNN's now facing a little blow back for coming to me seems very clear that he's incredibly concerned about Ukrainian defense I don't know his concern about American policy but his main mission was to make sure that the Ukraine got those weapons I understand that we all have an affinity to our homeland where we came from so again a questioning whether or not he was trying to help Ukraine now I know him in was born in Ukraine but he fled his refugee when he's three years old now I'm I'm I I love I love come cars with Duffy his energy is enthusiasm and and and the work that he's done as a congressman but you you don't go there that has nothing to do with this if there's there's people throwing out ideas this guy's a never Trumper all in all this stuff doesn't matter the testimonies the testimony ultimately hopefully the facts will be revealed will have a full understanding what was discussed on the call and that is it should be if you double and the fact of people trying to chip away at the reputations of anyone that testifies that's not how we do business here it's not a good thing step away
National security official to testify he was "concerned" by Trump's Ukraine call
"Who is lieutenant colonel Alexander Veneman well here's a few things to know he works at the White House as a Ukraine expert on the National Security Council he heard the call on July twenty fifth between president trump and president so Lynskey of Ukraine he's active duty arming and today he has testified in the impeachment inquiry under way on Capitol Hill and your national security correspondent Greg my re is here to tell us more had great Hey merrily so this is not and household name Alexander and I suspect most people never heard of them until this week what should we know about him please get this fascinating personal history he was born in Ukraine in the mid nineteen seventies when it was part of the Soviet Union and he has an identical twin and we'll have more on him in a moment their mother died when they were young and the father brought the twins and an older brother to New York when did men was three they settled in Brighton beach which is also called little Odessa because of all the Russian and Ukrainian immigrants many of them Jewish like that than men's after college he joins the military is sent to a rock at a time of heavy fighting in he's wounded in a roadside bomb and received a Purple Heart for this he speaks Russian and Ukrainian he's served at US embassies in Ukraine and Russia he has a master's degree from Harvard and became a Russian east European expert at the Pentagon okay so an accomplished guy let me steer as to why we're talking about him which is his role at the White House and how he came to listen to this July twenty fifth phone call between the two presidents right to last year he's asked to serve on the National Security Council very common for military state department CIA people to go there on a temporary assignment in his opening statement on Capitol Hill today he said that this spring he was troubled by what he called a false narrative about Ukraine and he cites a number of developments specifically this July twenty fifth call I said he was listening in the situation room and he he writes in his prepared testimony court I was concerned by the call I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U. S. citizen what did he do without concern well he wanted to raise it and he did have a confidante at the National Security Council we could turn to army lieutenant colonel EF Gainey than men his identical twin brother wow that's right they both work in the NSC in the west wing of the White House his brother is a lawyer who deals with ethics questions and Alexander van man race this with the NFC's top lawyer he said he'd often been encouraged to express his views and share his concern but was very proper about it said it had to go through the chain of command it to the proper authorities he stresses he's not the whistle blower but clearly he's been in the middle of the issue cranium discussions for the past year let me turn you to some of the criticism that are starting to circulate the president's supporters and seeking to undermine testimony that he may be delivering on Capitol Hill what are some of the doubts that they're trying to raise here so some Republicans are suggesting that he's more loyal to Ukraine than to the United States I'm here Sean Duffy an ex Republican congressman from Wisconsin speaking about them in on CNN today it seems very clear that he is incredibly concerned about Ukrainian defense I don't know his concern about American policy but his main mission was to make sure that the Ukraine got those weapons I understand that we all have an affinity to our homeland where we came from so raising this question of loyalty no others like the house minority leader Kevin McCarthy said he just thinks women is wrong about his interpretation of events and in others like a Republican Liz Cheney who really pushed back to all this is that it's shameful to question the patriotism the love of the country of of someone like men men also would seem to be hard to do it for a guy who won as you said the Purple Heart serving for the US in Iraq he spent his entire adult life of serving the US military so what happens tomorrow he testifies does he go back to work at the White House that still where he works we haven't heard anything to the contrary but it could certainly be a little bit awkward if indeed he does and here's Greg Mari without profile of lieutenant colonel Alexander women thanks Greg my

Let's get things started with just days to go before Thursday night's democratic debate which is happening here on. ABC Senate a Camera Harris under fire for using an apologizing for something. She said it's was reaction to question in New Hampshire at a town hall. Take Love you going to do in the next one year. Diminish the mentally retarded action of this guy well. I heard him talk about the other stuff and then that came later and it was not something that I really really heard or processed or or in any way condone. That's for sure now could you you could have handled it better or was this a rookie mistake and I guess I should explain to people saying the word mentally retarded as a derogatory in a derogatory fashion is no no and really they sang it at all. No no and I guess people don't realize that so. Maybe if you WANNA if you don't like somebody's policies or something you don't like what they do. Maybe calm boneheaded or ridiculous or you know there's there's there's a number of things to he said outside of that so and we've been told not to say it more than once yeah so. Was this a rookie mistake well. She claims that she didn't hear it. The guy had an accent. It's possible that she misunderstood what he said. It's possible unhinged. We call Donald Incompetence stuff yeah but you MORONIC I. I personally feel like we are in a race to bring back the soul of this country. Yes I want character back again so whether it's calling trump trump names or whether it's rookie mistake or not I think this was a moment for her to show her character and it reminded me of a time when your dad was running Megan and a moment I think none of us were when someone was saying some things about a bomb and he said no don't say that Obama's a decent man and I think these are moments when we look at our political you leaders. Do we want them to be examples for us for our children coming up well what then example is is true. Obama is a decent man. This guy is not but but I'm you look. I think that certainly she said either. I didn't hear it or I didn't process it and that's sometimes happens that you wish you would have responded in a better way but I think she's getting so much flak for not handling doing it in in handling it a better way but all of these candidates have had these gaffes especially Joe Biden and he gets a pass all all the time for these gaffes. Donald trump gets a pass all all time made fun of disabled and cheese actually the only candidate that has a real plan for people with disabilities and she and she had that she rolled that out last month and so I think it's sort of you know to to not give this candidate pat not a pass but to to she's getting so much flag for words that she didn't even say. I think says a lot about where we are in this in this race right now because the men get passes every single time every single time. Joe Biden died and we've given him a pass really at this table very very often I buy. I go to PAT aghast table because at least last couple of US actually know him. I know I know Pamela and I think Jerry version that then yeah given her background too but I was saying in the meeting this morning there's two kinds of candidates traditionally once the do well. On prompters and in speeches that are written for them all the Obama and people that do well off the cuff and town halls and really feed off energy. She's clearly not someone who's doing well feeding off the energy and in the spur of the moments when you have to react so oh. I think it's something she has to get stronger because her crowds are only going to get bigger and then it's going to be a hot topic on the show. I think we can debate gender gets who's getting what pass for whatever whatever reason but in two thousand ten. President Obama signed Rosa's Law which required the federal government trip place the word mental retardation with intellectual disability. My mother is a special needs teacher. I've always always entire life. I'm almost thirty five years old. I've known that that's not a word you can say. I just assumed if you're running for president you would know that too. I think she hurt my problem with her as she could have said. I totally messed up. I was exhausted. It's the campaign trail. I'm so sorry I have this bill. That's going to help people with disabilities and move on. It's the doubling down of. I didn't hear she clearly heard heard. Nobody's stupid. There's video of it and you gotta get better on the campaign trail in front of a live audience in front of a live audience every day. People screw up when we say dumb things it's okay just move on and apologize unlike our president who is unable to do that and I think you have to follow apetite fencing but he did it up and she threw it up and she theory right. Don't apologize we weren't there. This love the primary system because people go in listening to candidates. I think I'm either going to like them better or worse true based off of how they interact with me and Meghan not you've been through I have been through these channels too and that's why they matter because they get to make that judgment call. They get to talk to them one on one we weren't there. Let them make the judge. I'm happy it's still exists like the town halls and live people deserve to see their candidates one on one asking them questions face to efface. I'm glad it's not something that's gone by the wayside frankly and actually I've I've messed up because there are lots of stuff. I didn't know were off the table as well mistake but the stakes do happen and we're in a society we have to go. I know we're in a society where what you say does matter and we are so mike we we. We micro manage everything to the detriment. Sometimes I think of real people because none of us walk on water and won't won't do you remember when Obama was president how he spoke so cautiously all the time. Those days are long gone my friend he was. He's very aware monitored. There have been a great a lot of great orators. You know and they've all screwed up as well. We'll be right back later.

GOP Representative Jim Sensenbrenner to retire
"You I'm gonna be joined in just a few seconds here by congressman Jim Sensenbrenner who has been a powerful member of the United States house of representatives for decades former committee chairman and long time representative of currently called the fifth congressional district and the just the clouds of change a little bit over the years but it's always been a very very large chunk of the Milwaukee suburbs congressman Sensenbrenner good afternoon hi mark how are you doing I'm a great I you have it at all to do you want to share with our audience this afternoon so I'm just going to allow you to share it yes mark I wanna let you and your listeners know all of that I've decided not to seek reelection a year from November I always knew that when the time came for me to step aside I would come to that conclusion and I've done that now it's been a great run for the last forty two years I think I've made a difference both for our district in our country in building the Republican Party and making us safer through the patriot act in this modernization as well as standing up for disabled people and me on board so the time has come I think to pass the torch I'm proud of what I've done and then of what I want to do is to thank everybody who has supported me over the years because I never could have done it alone. obviously you've been there for a long time you had a few health problems have been some health issues in your family are those contributing factors here or have you just decided that you wanna roll off into the sunset and not have to do so much hard work for the rest of your life well first of all I'm not planning on going off into the sunset I will remain active in Wisconsin politics health question the answer is no my wife who has severe aneurysm is stabilized and I am feeling you know up to the job and you all are going to be hearing an awful lot for me during the next sixteen months when I survive my final term of particularly if the Democrats are foolish enough to actually go through an impeachment in the Judiciary Committee that was my next question you do and you're not resigning or anything like that your term would run to January of twenty one and you are going to serve that entire que van is correct I am not resigning I am serving out my term and at the end of this term I will have been in Congress longer than anybody else in Wisconsin history including David OP was that done was that a goal at any point what it all really. for the last two years but you know I I I figured yeah after all the pushing and pulling in the last Congress you know I wanted to be there in this Congress whether we were in the majority or the minority and when you're in the minority of course you have nothing to say about the schedule but I learned a long time ago that when you have a good idea you get a bipartisan sponsor co sponsor of it because in our divided Congress unless you do that it's not going anywhere. have you made a decision as to whether or not you're going to endorse someone who seeks to replace your I'm not going to win Doris anybody I'm sure there's going to be a scrum of Republicans running and I hope they all seek the party endorsement next month or next March the fifth district caucus the only thing I can say to those who are contemplating running are actually running is don't kill each other please. the I. up. ten year of your career you I mean the the what the media will describe me the use different adjectives than those of the conservatives would describe but forceful aggressive feisty combative committed all of those words do come to do come divided describing your career I mean it's hard what you mentioned that you're not going to go watch silently I can't imagine you ever being silent ready thank you not only were a consistent conservative and maybe a little bit ahead of your time in some of your conservative points of view you chose to make yourself vocal and clear and aggressive as you know there are some members of Congress we call a back benchers they go there and you never hear anything from them again and they cast their votes in the collector paychecks and so on you chose from the beginning. to be heard and that the voice of sense in better would be known and would be out there I talk for just a moment about that and about your own style and the way that you've kind of handle the comported yourself in your life tenure in Congress well after my first election I got a call from former president Ford he said Jim you have a safe district you can either be a great constituents Orvis congressman or hire people who can do that my staff has been great or you can be somebody who actually aggressively pursues and passes legislation that was very good advice and that's what I've done really right from the beginning and I don't regret doing that because the staff can do an awful lot of things that they can their goose registration they can't debated they can't vote on it they can't negotiate with the Senate and with the White House and I I just had my staff pull together some figures following Gerry Ford's advice I've been the lead sponsor coast sponsor of four thousand two hundred ninety nine pieces of legislation seven hundred sixty eight of them passed the house and two hundred seventeen of them have been signed into law by six different presidents so I think I made a difference both for our district in for our country and I've kept in touch hundred town meetings average every year nobody can come close to that in there a lot of people who come into the town meetings and say I've been to direct I've been to route and things like that but I think that this is an issue of accountability and I guess somebody could be wishy washy and six months later when things don't turn out correctly people say why didn't he or she tell us that that's not my style some is not going to pass I think people are newer right away. and they are put their efforts into something else. when I got wind that you wanted to have something to say obviously I didn't think it was you announcing reelection because you pronounce your candidacy for reelection ninety seven thousand times that it was something else one of the questions that will come up is why now are you burned out to get tired of the attitude in Washington did that come into play or is it simply that it's time and you want to go out on your own terms while you can still do it on your own terms well it's you know the thing is is that the framers set up the constitution that required compromise which is kind of a naughty word nowadays and it's been frustrating I'll be the first one to admit that I wanted to go out on my own terms I don't haven't announced opponent free election and nobody can come up and say well I forced him out map because there's nobody that has any credibility at math you know the other thing you know is is that I'd like to get a new representative in the fifth district before redistricting because if I served another term and would be leaving in twenty twenty two I can see the wolves on both sides of the aisle on Madison seeing themselves going to Washington and carving the seat up and believe me I have work to make the wall counties more Republican the wall counties have got to be kept together in redistricting if Republicans are going to have any chance of winning a statewide election yeah I guess we should tell people since she has changed a bit over every ten years you're just like I guess could roughly be described as a small portion of western Milwaukee county the northern half of walk a shot I think all they're virtually all of Jefferson I think you have all the virtually all of Dodge and Washington you no longer have sake I think I think I pretty much yeah you're pretty and the city of whitewater the city of white water ice. get a little bit down there and your white water in that so that's it yet it could change a little bit over the years with the redistricting and so on but it is generally bad. a Republican district and wanted which well you had challengers none that were ever very serious I guess my final question to you is was that liberating and allowing you to. not have to worry at all about. taking positions that were in chores by having a district that was perceived is generally safe do you think do you think that allowed you to become an even more effective and outspoken voice for conservatism it was because I mean I think you you pre date even Tommy Thompson's governorship in here what if you think about the foundational roots of the contemporary Republican Party in Wisconsin I mean your the route I mean it's it's been you and everything's calm well you better route well. very clearly so all the way the old nine district was when I was first elected it didn't start out that way half the courthouse in half the legislative delegation in Waukesha county were Democrats we had a party leadership that complained about conservatives at the bar at the Country Club and the next spring with my support down Taylor was elected Waukesha county chairman and with the party signing up for members and me pointing out folks who have fled from the city that is Republicans that really stand up for your values of small government good schools will crime rates lower taxes and you are a shared your previous voting habits and start voting for Republicans they have a lot of people but led by don Taylor bureau have been able to turn walkie Sean Washington counties into the Republican strongholds of they are and in terms of my political legacy I can look back at that it was a great deal of pride. you you may I I said that was my last question I do have another one you obviously timed the announcement the election is next year the primary election which is where all the action to be on the Republican side is you know a full you're a ways you're giving the other would be candidates an opportunity to go on this it will catch anyone by surprise even though you will Sir about obviously the entirety of the term did you have this in your mind last year when you were writing that the the election that you won back in twenty eighteen was the last is this but thought for a while it or did this come up in the last week what where's where's the time line bad where arms of how you come to this well you know what I what I can say is that Sean Duffy and I were the two most responsible for convincing Paul Ryan to run for speaker and I made a commitment at least mentally that I would serve out and be Paul Ryan's good friend in backstop and he gave me a couple of messages to straighten out which were real masses that you know Paul's retirement was a surprise but no surprise but things have gone along so far down the you know I said that you know really we don't need to have an uproar in the fifth district because it will hurt the statewide take care of well you know heard governor Walker and Attorney General Shamil and you know needed to have the the work that I was doing and the endorsements that I could make the keep the the fifth district legislators reelected. sure enough well it's I'm sure we're going to have you on the program is going to be a lot of things that happen over the next sixty months and I appreciate your joining us to make this time I would say epic and historic announcement this afternoon well thank you very much for giving me the opportunity mark okay thanks

"I'm certain you will love the club. Okay. Moving on. As if the humiliation doesn't stop with bozo. The swale, well, and others shifty and all these other clowns entirely discredited themselves. Chris Cuomo, the governor son who I'm not really sure what Cuomo's claim to fame is other than his last name badges a show on CNN primetime watched by tens of people in airports yet and say not tens of thousand tens watched by tens of people forced to watch it. So Cuomo has a really great guy on his show. Sean Duffy Representative from risk Wisconsin. You may have seen before he's a really nice guy. And a Cuomo says something so dumb. He makes bozo. The swale. Well, looks like a protege of Albert Einstein play this cut a swath while this. I mean, excuse me of Cuomo. This is funny did the president know so as you can have some accountability. Well, I think you want to know is who duped us because it doesn't want to know that too. But you guys have to figure that out now when you should know that usually you've been talking about this for over two years, you should say who actually set aside. I know you guys are supposed to figure that people will do that. I hope that that was an oversight issue is what would he do to make ourselves safer as in your boys didn't want it? About you guys. Did do report it on it. And you took you took all these salacious reports of all of the scandal and for two years, and I think you gotta say who doesn't analyze how we get our information because for two years every single hour every day, we talked about it. And I think in some I don't cast blame on you. I think you've been fair. But I look at the American people, and they go do I trust the media? Do I trust the Democrats who've been peddling this? You're asking yourself that Sean is because for the first time in our history of a president who tells everybody that the media is their enemy, and the institutions of our democracy can't be trusted. But Chris if not suggestion, but if the media was doing its job there would be former skeptical we're not the instigator with. But you're the reporters and reporters, do you have a job to make sure you're putting out the white facts years, you put the wrong facts? So where we're on fasting -nificant, what will you acts that we put. What Ramon listen in the interest of time because I could do an entire show on what wrong facts CNN put out at this case, I've got a hat tip, amber Athey from the daily caller. And I'm going to include this story in the show notes today, amber Athey, put together a list the title of pieces of media. The media's Russia bombshells look even worse now that Muller found. No collusion. There's a list it's not just CNN, but others, but to show you how ridiculous Chris Cuomo is this guy's incredible. And let's just go to shortlist of some of the stories CNN put out that were absolutely false. And again, I don't fall Representative Duffy do like Martha McCallum in the Cup. We play prior Joe, he's probably incredulous that this is like you don't expect to go on the air and have an argument about as ten plus ten equal twenty. And then the guy goes. What he calls twenty one. And you're like any he's gonna prove to me. It doesn't equal twenty one. And you're sitting there like. How do I do like you got forget? Here's the best way to say. Would you bring it advocates to that interview? You would never expect some this is why McCallum Duffy you're both like, wait. Wait, you're asking me to catalog. Your fake news stories if they don't exist and McCallum sitting there like you're asking me to show you the fake dossier. We just prove was fake. It's fake. It's like getting called in an interview. No, no ten plus ten equals twenty one. And you're like what you don't have an advocate. You can't prove in your who would bring it up because I didn't expect to bring I didn't expect you to say something so stupid. I'm gonna help these guys out here. And it said we have to do this. But I'm going to go through just a few again, you can read them in amber ethics piece of CNN's figures..

"Congressman Sean Duffy is with us this afternoon. Live from the nation's capital. Hello, congressman. Hey, good afternoon. How you doing? Hey, I'm doing well. I want to ask you about the Cohen hearings. But I know you didn't get the chance to catch a lot of it because you are in your own hearings discussing the GDP, what's the most important thing that came out of the hearings that you were attending today. We have chairman Powell Emmys the Federal Reserve. So, you know, I I ask questions, and again, we're in this great debate about whether chef socialism or capitalism, crazy. But. German Powell reiterated the point that we have three percent of GDP growth twenty eight team. We haven't seen that kind of growth in twelve years. And so you know, what what happened what caused the great growth and even better than it was the Republican and President Trump's tax cuts. Grow the economy. He commented you know, everybody's making more money. Whether you're male or female, African American Hispanic white wages are going up unemployment's going down. And so again, I think if a push back on the democrat narrative that our economic policies haven't made people's lives better, the chairman confirmed how great things are going, and he also come to this has been the longest expansion really in American history. And I made the point that usually we would taper off at the end of the expansion. But instead we have the greatest growth at the end of this expansion is because of our great policies. Contributed to that. After that US congressman Sean Duffy is with us from Capitol Hill. I won't ask you detailed questions about the Coen testimony. 'cause I know you haven't had the chance to really tap into all that fully. But let me ask you this Michael Cohen, the self-described fixer for the president his closest adviser for a decade admitted that he lied to congress repeatedly and lied to just about anybody. That would listen now testifying on Capitol Hill. My question is why did we even bother to give this guy the oath, and how do we know he's telling the truth now? So we don't always tell the truth. And I'm in my home a prosecutor days. I'd love to have the opposition bring up a witness like this. He's a they convicted liar convicted liar to congress anything he says, I think is unbelievable. When he has three year prison sentence hanging over his head. He's he's one of the trying to get a good graces of the special counsel, maybe haven't vetted, but also another point that came up during the. He very well may have a financial interest in this testimony because there might be deal or a movie or or TV based on his story. So he can make huge money based off of his testimony lies to this congress. And he's not he's not looking out for the truth. He's looking out for themselves. And I think you know, you look at President Trump and probably Houston. There have guys like Michael Cohen around you because their their skull. I wanted to ask you congressman about the national emergency declaration. This was debated and voted on in the house voted to support the president's request for this some of your colleagues, Mike Gallagher. Jim Sensenbrenner voted. No, why did you vote in favor of this? Because it's a national emergency. I mean, we have caravans of thousands of people come into our southern border. We don't know who they are last year alone. We apprehended seventeen thousand criminals, those are the only the ones that we've apprehended I'm the other criminals are getting into our country. We know won Wisconsin. And around the country. We have you know, a drug epidemic. Math and airline ninety five percent of that comes across the southern border. We know that that stirred of the of the women who come on these dangerous journeys from Central America are sexually assaulted. Little girls are raped. This is a crisis at our border. And we have to give the president the tools that are necessary to to address the crisis. And so we we have some good conversations the -sconsin delegation about this presidential action, and we just had a a disagreement on it. And I think you know, if you look at the nineteen seventy six law that allows the president to declare a national emergency. He's the peasants well within his right to do it NFL. Congress doesn't like the authorities at the president has all the congress can tailor that authority. What at this point the president has committed to securing the border making sure we determine as a country whose income in. And who said what when you have an open border. I think it creates chaos. In mayhem in by the way, we should enforce laws are laws have been passed by the congress should be enforced at the southern border. We expect our TSA we expect air traffic controllers expect the FDA we expect them to do their job. One hundred percent accurate. No planes had crashed in the air. No bombs are guns to get on airplanes. We should also give the tools to the border patrol and to ice to do their jobs one hundred percents accurately could not let anyone I'm awfully come into our country. US congressman Sean Duffy on a very busy day. We sure appreciate you being with us congressman, thank you very much. Thanks for having me in stay warm. Heck, good luck with that work on that. Here's the opposition side to what the congressman just said from those in his own party. Like, Jim Sensenbrenner, they say that to vote in favour this emergency declaration to secure funding. That's been expressly denied by congress circumvents the legislative power of the purse and. There's a fear among some Republicans that a future democratic president could do something similar to bypass congress. And that is the debate that congressman Duffy reference.

So go to my Facebook page, folks and give tie here of a few suggestions, I've given him some of my own. I don't think everybody's gonna think the thing. I the movie I think is the funniest movie of all time is actually the funniest movie of all time. But I think the funniest movie of all time is best in show. However, it's not sure that's necessarily recommendation. I would I would make for you. But you know, Talladega nights. Ghostbusters for heaven's sakes. So go to my Facebook page, folks. And please help tie helped me help tie help himself. Okay. All right now. Sean Duffy is standing by on the phone, Sean. How are you? I am doing well. Vicky. I'm gonna go with wedding crashers. Wedding crashers on the list. I just sent a tie that is on the list that is wedding crashers forty year old virgin old school all of those are on the list that I sent to him. These are fairly fairly recent comedies that are. It's almost impossible not to laugh at some of them are a little bit, you know, filthier than others, I suppose Ghostbusters pretty much a hundred percent clean. All right. So we got up, but you know, it's twenty two it's you know, he's old enough to drink. So he can handle it. At Durham major league all of these movies. All right. Sean Duffy on my program. I wanna start here, Sean, and that is what has become. At least it's being promoted as as if it is entirely acceptable. We just saw a judge who is from Wisconsin, actually, well-qualified judge from Wisconsin. Removed from a list of nominees by from President Trump for consideration to the court because he's Catholic and and you in order to apparently survived the liberals now acceptable unconstitutional religious test. The only way you're allowed to be a Christian, and they're going to survive a nomination is if you are a Christian in name only that you don't actually practice your faith. This is their new thing by sensually trying to run anyone with traditional Christian values government claiming that because people with traditional Christian values tend to believe in traditional marriage and things like that. They're not qualified to serve in America. And this is becoming acceptable for the left. And God forbid that we believe in protecting the most defenceless and voice less inner society, which are born babies, and and and God forbid also that we would actually said we shouldn't even kill babies after they're born and the partial birth abortions. I mean, this is the last has become so radical and you're right. The demonizing demonizing those safe. It's just that they demonize, you know, those of us who might put on her bed Maga hat. They wanna make us unacceptable in society. And what I think liberals don't understand his until we are a vast majority of America. And I don't know how you you win an election by hating Catholics. There's a lot of us out there better on the Catholic faith indicate us. It's pretty tough for us to vote for you. It's not true. True. True true. How many people knew that the that the left has been jettisoning judicial nominees because they're Catholic how many people know that if somebody who happens to be a member of the knights of Columbus who ends up getting grilled how I mean, it's not being widely reported. And so yes, except that our team our team Republicans supposedly team constitution here in in some people are complaining about religious tests. You know, you'll see it on the on the right-leaning websites, or if you happen to be a talk radio listener, but lots of people aren't and so if I would say for religious bigotry happens. Nobody's there to report. It does anybody understand that it happens? And we'll anybody hold anyone else. Accountable. I think I consider talk radio. And I mean, I think that you know, if you're an native Columbus all the good work, they'd be a man's organization. They're Catholic and they raise money for good causes on the community guys at bowling because they wanna make someone else's life better. And and again to think that you can't really practice religion anymore. Even though it's guaranteed under our constitution. You can't really practice. It any longer than Serb and government again, you're you're you're you can't you can't be pro traditional marriage. You can't be you. You can't be pro-life because if you are you're on fit to serve, but the full side of that has been who visit to serve what does just a radical leftists who who believe in may turn partial birth abortions. Those soon. Well, we're not gonna rock going allow those those who believe in engaged marriage the heat if you don't believe in global warming. Now, I'm a I'm a guy who believes and making sure we do things walks. I love I love the environment. I love clean air and clean water. But if you're right, quote denier, you are demonized and just like if you already Catholic you are demon. I this is how they advance. They're caught demonize us and make us unacceptable in society, or they try to and this is gonna work so long as you let it and I thought well this great with the young boy the guy with the the Maga had life March is conservatives stood up and they actually defended push back. I think for one of the first times, and we're unwilling to be demonized by the leftist media, and we actually called them out if we were more aggressive in defending our own like the lefty fanfares, we'll be far better off. And again, it comes back to us to say, we're not going to tolerate it rock and accept it. I can I completely agree. And that is not something we are seeing on mass. When Brett Cavanaugh was attacked. Finally. We saw some spirit in some spunk in some fight coming from from the Senate Republicans on mass we saw everybody sort of rally around that the Covington kids as you point out same thing, we just, but but with regard to the dismissal and the harassment of people who wear maga- hats, or the way we're seeing judicial nominees continue to be treated, here's one from Wisconsin, Gordon, GM Pietro, and I'm I've probably seen his name wrong. Apologize, sir. If I'm saying your name wrong. But from Wisconsin rejected because he's Catholic I'm Brian Hagedorn in Wisconsin in Wisconsin because he had co founded Christian school that believes in traditional Christian principles. He's being attacked from the top of the state to the bottom of the state in the press. And by the left, not a peep from anyone at least that I can see except Dewey Strobe. Oh, God bless Jewish trouble. But he was pretty much the only one who pushed back against that. And so we're not seeing the kinds of j- just reject this is unconstitutional. It is immoral. It is unethical it is unfair. And if you don't reject it it tees up the harassment of the next person, and you said the leftist trying to make us unacceptable in society. They are trying to make us feel as if we are unacceptable in society. So that we don't fight back for ourselves. And the reason it's working is because we don't see our own people standing up for us. We just had the realtors bail and Brian Hagedorn because they got pressure from the left wing press. And and and I love the realtors are now normalization where you can't you can't be pro life and for traditional marriage is that is that where the realtors active, I think there's a lot of people of faith who might take objection to that. I mean, just having this conversation blows my mind that that we have to stand by and Hagedorn. Here's a here's what we have to actually take a step back and go how do you win this? When they want to say, I want to stop to pressure of demonization communica mom or dad say if you're going to the airport som- take off the Maga hat the baseball game. You know, take off the comfort. You don't wanna be demonized? So take it off in bats. What happens they know that because the demonization that soft pressure makes parents and people go I don't want. I don't want to deal with the pressure. I'm going to get. But if you wanna fight and you wanna win look to Donald Trump has been no one who has been abused more than this president. And there's no one who has stood up and fought harder against the left wing nut jobs. And when he does in calls an opera being crazy. Most people go, you know, what he's actually. Kinda right. Here's right. But when you cook their abuse, they win, and again, I I haven't been I haven't been pushed back because I was out of the state for about a week on on the realtors and hanging on story. We also be pushing back on that story every elected official said because I love the realtors are their friends of mine, but you know, what message to defend the rest of Wisconsin that they're not looking why don't you look at the policy who, you know, who is the best your temperament for for selling real estate and an increase in home values in Wisconsin. That's what they should look at this should be looking at social policy of judges. And if they do they get into trouble like they have right now with withdrawing their endorsement of door. It's a huge mistake. But all of a sudden accepted, the left would never accept this. Why should we? No kidding. No kidding in. A giant pushback is still possible and absolutely necessary. And it is what we have to do here. Listen, you're exactly right about Trump pushing back, including against the left wing press, which is just simply the communication arm of the Democrats which had become a much much much more radical group of people. The press does not care how radical the Democrats have gotten the press does not care that they are now openly promoting everything from confiscating property too, late term abortion, partial birth abortion and abortion, while a woman is delivering a child and infanticide the press because they are just simply the communication arm of the left wing, which is the Democratic Party will just continue to mouth the propaganda and manipulate the narrative so anything that that even gets into the head of a Republican that oh I have to worry about what the press is going to do to me how the press is gonna treat me they're gonna treat. You like garbage gnome. Matter what. And so it does not matter. If you're if you try to play nice, or if you came to their pressure tomorrow, they will treat you like garbage. Because it's what they do. Trump shows the way not just on policy, but also on the press. In case in point. John McCain who is in. The moderate guy, and he he played until he won. Then they demonize. Ronna Romney to win the more moderate Republicans. And once he won a demonized him to beat them. Encounter the same thing with Trump. They were the end of the all atom on his shows. And they thought the ratings went up, and he's so great until he got the nomination, and they haven't stopped him ever since. I think back can you talk about the press the mouthpiece of the Republican party democrat party. Gravity democrat. They were saying that the Donald Trump. Manufacturer crisis on the border. The liberal press reports Democrats claim it's a manufactured crisis on the border. They actually just started saying no manufacturing places on the border. They took the talking points for the democrat Impreza reporting it as true as opposed to this is the position of the democrat. It's hard to fight and win environment. And when the deck is stacked against us. You look at how well we still do. I think it's a testament to the power of ideas with the fact of conservative talk radio, Fox News. And the fact that we'll sit and talk to each other about what direction we want this country to go, which is not in a socialist, radical liberal, progressive fashion. Yeah. Nihilistic I would actually say that radical liberal progressive equals nihilism because it's about it's about fracturing us to the point where we're not America any longer, and it is about then one group of people concentrating power over all of us. Donald Trump is now sitting at fifty two percent approval. And that's not from Rasmussen. That is fifty two percent approval. He has gone up with suburban women. He has gone up with black people. He has gone up with Hispanic voters. He has gone up with just about every single demographic, you can imagine. And that is because of the push back because of heat of just simply caved and done with the left-wing press wanted him to do and didn't do any. We just governor as a moderate and set up. I'm so sorry and didn't go out on Twitter and engage in the in the hand to hand combat metaphorically have he hadn't done any of that..

No one knows if anything we can go out there in in a in a free economy and make our dreams come true. And if you work hard in this economy and this country, you'll be successful. You leave your drink. Like like, you said you up I mean temple. All right short. We'll be just turned the page here on a new year. What kind of goals? Do you have set for yourself? What can we expect to see from Sean Duffy twenty nineteen? Well, I I'm I'm working in congress and the minority. I I'm not sure how that's going to play out. But I'm I'm a guy who has to look across the aisle and get things done with emigrant's there on the home front eight kids. I I'm gonna tell you hit more games, you know, and I'm gonna do better job on my schedule. And you know, makes for I'm doing the right part of carbon out not just boxer time. But consistent time if we there's a lot. But making sure we have consistent time consistency in the schedule as opposed to blocks on and blocks using happens of miscanthus. So I'm gonna improve that. And again, I think it'll make me better bother and hopefully I'll really big congressman working with my my my Democrats leadership across the aisle. Very cool. All right last question. I'm gonna hit you with Sean. I love to ask all the dads. I get on the podcast, what type of advice, could you? Give today. That new dad or to that about to be father who's out there listening.

"It bothered me so much I reached out to the little girl's father his name is Dennis Varela Hernandez. I did an interview with him on the podcast here. He's living in Honduras, and he told a completely different story than the one that was being reported. So it's it's hard to know where the truth is. But my heart goes out to these kids because they're in a bad place right from the dribble. They're being used as propaganda by the other side. Some of them are being used as tools just to sneak into the country. What are your thoughts? How can you be four border security and also care about the kids at the same time packing? A question of different way. Which is how can you say you support families and not me for border security, and the reason I say that is because when you have an open border, you have people in under and Guatemala and other countries that think that they can make this very dangerous turn towards southern border. And you know that over all over four hundred people died making that journey last year alone, we know from Doctors Without Borders that over thirty percents of the women who take that journey sexually assaulted. And we know that was a former prosecutor you on how aggressive the assault is this is lifelong impacts on the people who reviews into the journey is being and it take it because I think can row country your order. They're not gonna take Jerry. And if you have a legitimate asylum plane, let's go to the American embassy in their home country. Apply for asylum. If they meet the quite sure yet, they can get on the plane, and they can slide America. But I mean two thousand mile journey where I mean, the come in one of these is because of just the condition was living and the and the excruciating journey that they go on. It's a humanitarian crisis that we would incentivize people to cover southern border, and then on top of that, Mike, I'm in Wisconsin. But we have been ravaged by heroine and meth in our communities in over ninety percent of those drugs are are coming from the southern border. And so what's happened is many so many people have sort of using the drugs, and there's some addictive dangerous that we've had to take the Kony's take their kids away in place their kids out of placement and becomes to spend so much money on child out of home placements because of drug. Attic, parents that's the comes run out of money in. So if you look at just the health of family, you don't have to helping family when you're addicted to heroin or to Matt he don't, and if we could stop inflow of the drugs that would help I think from the supply side help us addresses, and also you gotta get to the heart of why people are using these what's sadness, or or what trauma has happened in the life that has brought into the drug use. But make no mistake the southern border and the drug flow has been catastrophic for Wisconsin famines, but also fan all across the country. And then if you look at officers thing, you know, a lot of people wanna come here to world and do looking for better life. But you do have still a good percentage of people who are criminals, someone part of criminal gangs. We have people that are are now of terrorist have been trying to get our country for a long time. We saw that from nine eleven you see them get on airplanes in foreign airports, and they always stop them and US airports. We now know that they're flying the Central America sometimes to Panama and Costa Rica, and then going off and joining the caravans and trying to get into our country. So there's a there's a spec there too. And so I think the policy on the border and the most compassionate policy is if you have border security, you don't incentivize people to take the dangerous journeys Mechat, compassionate policy..

"I'm on Manson services. The new chair of our committee, Maxine Waters, Maxine Waters is, you know, pretty far left wants peace president, you know, we don't agree. A whole lot on politics and disagree with her fervently on politics. But I don't hate her. I actually get along with her really, well when we close the door and we worked on together, I respect her. And I've got you know, a lot of other members of my committee who are part of the resistance movement. They they hate Trump movement. And again, I disagree with an on policy. But we met politics drive. Our lives into such a hateful space of families. Sometimes don't talk to each other anymore siblings are friends, you know, unfriendly other on Facebook because of politics is absolutely outrageous. And if you if you can't disagree on politics and still be with someone I think it says more about you than it does about the funny agree with and. Politics. My mom is a big Bernie Sanders supporter. I am not. And I love the woman to death. She gave me birth and we'll have conversations, but I don't attack. Our personally, we'll talk about the issues with her and she'll get mad at me. And she'll tell me a whole negative things about the president. And, but I'm over we have to get to a place in our country where you know, we look at ourselves, and how we respond to politics you can love down Trump. You can hit him listening to your podcast. But does that mean, you you can't be sending someone who feels differently than you? And we're gonna look in heal the country when it comes together as a country. It's not gonna be the congress. It doesn't. It's not going to be a president that doesn't it's going to be a families and our friends cuties who say we wanted. We wanted to base issues because they're important to us. But we're still gonna be friends are still gonna respect each other. Even if we have disagreement on the politics because it's those friendships. Waters friendship relationship that builds a trough that allows you to actually work on on some points agreement that you may have. But if you just demonize the other person, I don't think you see humanity in person. And I think you're painting them and your engineers community. Very well said, yeah, I think it's important that we recognize the fact that we have a lot more common than we know as fathers. You know, it doesn't matter. What religion what race or what side of the aisle at you're on as a dad you want the best for your child. You know, we love our children we want to provide and protect far families. If we just start there is a basis, I think we would quickly figure out that. Hey, you know, we're all in search of the same things here. Happiness Lovejoy success freedom. And I just don't understand you know, how we're missing that. Right now. As you kind of back to the families mistake our kids watch they see us they any late us the good things in the bad things. And if they see, you know, you're empowering time politics of or the other side, they to be intolerant. You're raising intolerant filed and again, I think according to raise I advocate, my kids on on the points that I hold and oftentimes push back on things that I disagree on. And I've talked to themselves and Dow, but we always promote being respectful and even respectful of those who have different opinions, and I do that by responsible may have disagreements with me. But if you don't exhibit that tolerance in your life, your kids seem they will be tolerant, and then you don't see this country come together, you see it move further apart. And I think that's that things were family and it's dangerous for the country. And so I just I mean to listening to, you know, get mad you might have a politician on whenever. A viewpoint. I think they have to take a second look at at how they're looking at their own lives, the angry, they have on politics and put that aside and agree to engage in the debate and hit the anger sideline. I agree. And right now, you know, the biggest issue is the wall and border security, and as a father it bothers me to hear about, you know, the kids being separated from their parents on justly, in fact, when I saw the cover of time magazine over the summer with the little girl crying in front of President Trump..

"I think you know, canes right in, and I think culture has you know, promoted the idea that, you know, and so so it's okay. To to break up the unit never have a unit in the first place and have kids, and you know, because it's become far more socially acceptable. I think it's happened more frequently and we glamorize things that are other than a solid family unit. And if our culture, our Hollywood our schools, our politics said, no, no, we value. We hold up this entity of the family and made it maybe cooler in culture, you might see more of it. And I mean, even so far as we have all of these issues. Now toxin community masculinity is bad on a second mister entities. Really good. It's really good have feminine side in the masculine side. But to say that we're gonna d value even men and say their mass. Salinity is wrong or offensive or abusive? Isn't it front to the to the very idea of saying, hey, you can be a man, and you know, you can be a man, and and your household in man raising kids and give good values in could structure in good discipline to your kids, and your wife, and I think it's great to see you know, how to see two parents together to raise them. And now, they see potentially, you know, both parents go off to work in the morning to to make money to pay them mortgage and put food on the table. Those are all that our kids pick up on that family structure. And I think what happens too is we don't call the way it is when you have a two parent home. I mean, our time is so tapped out, but you do have more time because even split up the roles of whether you're shopping, or you know, who's going to gain or pen to sit around the dinner table. I know when I'm at home alone with my kids. And I was not there. I don't have time for anything. It's really hard to give kids detention the need when you're doing it on. And I commend this thing parents who are who are going 'cause I know it's not easy. And I don't want to minimize the work that they do. But I know how hard it is. And for my wife, and I'm in DC, if you're not if you don't have a partner in it, you almost gonna survival mode, and it becomes really challenging to give the kids the the necessary attention that they need in the struggles that they couldn't go through in their life. When you don't have some mine space in your own life to address those needs. And and again, I think that that to structure office more time more space more nurturing for the young people raisins. Yeah, I agree. And I have been fortunate to have over a dozen navy seals on the show here, and they speak about masculinity in a similar way that you did just now I love the fact that the seals are getting involved in politics their talent. And mindsets are definitely a benefits all of us. Another issue that they. Talk about is gun control. We have heard many cries for gun control, especially from Hollywood, which in contrast can't seem to produce a single film without promoting violence. How do you feel about guns and gun safety with kids and the whole issue? I again guns aren't telling people people used to kill people. Right. I mean, very simple Affi. And you know, I come from Wisconsin. I'll be gone, and we spent months, and you know, as me, I've I've gone to my home. You got to be Frank with your kids about how dangerously are and how they even the other appropriate age holiday works. And you know, how they're able to access them with their parents. I mean, and you go through stringent rules with them, but we've gone up in a country. That's gone. I mean, I mean the opposed the second amendment, but our country in our history even guns in our homes since funding. We haven't had the violence Steen some of these school shootings. And so I would I would I be it's me is the last says we have to look at guns..

"And how becoming a dad kind of changed your perspective on life. I so we've my twenty eight years old, we got married, and, you know, at our offer star, you know, shortly after we got married, and you know, I was I was kind of I did reality TV back in the day. I did you know MTV's the real world. My wife had done the same show law school. You know, you're kind of footloose and fancy free at that stage in life, and when you have a baby on the way, it really makes you focus on what's important, and how do you support 'em? And you know, what is your future? Look like, it's not just union logger. It's you know, your wife and your child and for me that kinda put a focus on politics. I I was never involved in politics in my life. I was. Republican voters, but didn't know a lot of issues and started my father career kind of coincided with being more interested in the world in which I was gonna raise my children, and I got more involved in kind of the policies on it would be like in America for the kids that I would raise would it be as prosperous and free has the America Negra. Yeah. One thing I talk about Sean quite often on the podcast here is that it feels like there is an attack on the family life, a family unit on fatherhood in general through our pop culture the way danza portrayed on TV in the movies is really far from the reality of how dads are. And I think the results have been devastating on our society. And if we could just get back to celebrating family life and never Shing the family units. I think most of the problems that we're seeing this country right now would just begin to fade away. I think I mean, this is a huge impact on culture. And I think that we were supposed to raise kids. You know with two parents. And you know, I mean, and we know this men and women offered different things to children. And so, you know, why my wife has, you know, one strategy with kids, and it's stemming in and minus Mashburn, and I think that balance over, you know, south of us develop, and it's the best of foam was to raise kids, and when I'm gone or she which for this for Foxman, she's gone. It's really hard to to to parent as a single parents. It's really challenging. And I think you know, we have a lot of kids were growing up angry. And you know, I don't think they've been fully served by how how is you put it out or Culpepper treason values family in the ruin of kids in the family structure. And I from my perspective, it's important policies in Washington that actually support the family unit and the creation of the family because no dot is the best place to raise kids. Healthy kids productive kids. Moral kids more by in kids is when you raise them in that family suffer, and by the way, you know, the families people in the top Santa's prosperous when they say together. And so all around it's a it's a benefit to America to our culture to our communities when you support and strengthen our family annals. Yeah. Well, said I agree with you. And when we look at this the ticks of children who grow up in a father home, they are really devastating. And I think it's important. What you just said there about the two parent household where there is somebody to nourish lov and somebody to fight and protect, and it's not that people that come from single parent households have never been successful, many of them have. But the best chance we could possibly give our children to have the best of both worlds. Why do you think there is such a fatherless household issue? Plaguing us today..

"You just mentioned Alexandro Cossio Cortez and Saint you can't afford an apartment, so when I ran for congress. I actually give him my seat of the DA. I didn't have a job because I gave him the DA physician. My wife didn't work I had six kids. So I went seven months without a paycheck with six kids in a stay at home wife, and I got one paycheck February first for being a member of congress. I did a town hall and said it's been tough for me to pay my bills federal income. Right. And they said, oh, poor struggling, Sean Duffy, every left-wing media organization hit me, and I'm out of touch and what a jerk again, seven months. No income, Alexandra Caccio Cortez. Whereas mine Bank account has no kids took a salary. Former campaign says she can't afford an apartment in. Oh, the left-wing media go she's just a woman of the people just poor old middle class girl from you know, the Bronx good old Alexandra Cossio Cortez the way they handled the two scenarios. I'm like you. Gotta be kidding. They try to destroy me in in in one scenario, and with regard to her like, she's just, you know, just a poor old girl. The people. That's a bad for poor thing. She's gotta go fund me page that she's raising money for herself on which I think is absurd. She's got she's taking a salary from her campaign in somebody should actually see whether or not she's violated campaign finance law the way she did that she's you know, she's going to be making one hundred seventy four thousand dollars a year when she does start to collect her paycheck. She could crash with other people, you know, they all all together, they could just go, you know, share rooms together or she could work in her office or she could commute she could also commute. It's not that far, by the way, the same wing press. That was saying Sean Duffy he's out of touch when he said that is the same left wing press who was beating up on Republicans who had couches in their office and we're crashing in their office. So they didn't have to rent apartments. So they didn't have to be tethered to that den of iniquity. So they so they'd be more inclined to go home spend time and district spend time with their family the same left-wing pressing poor poor girl. You know was in was beating up on. You was also beating up on the Republicans who are trying to save money and not be part of the swamp creature contingent in Washington DC by simply having couches in their offices where they could crash if they had to stay for a couple of days. Well, I would just say this that that you don't want to become comfortable in Washington DC and sometimes those apartments and they did open lifestyle here. Yeah. I don't want to stay here. A little more than apartment and when you sleep on a block air mattress. You want to go home, and in your home isn't here. Your home is in your district by homes in Wisconsin. And it's it's it's it's a it's a really great reminder of you know, where you want to. Sleep at night warfare mattress. Or you know, or you bet at home and keeps you real is what it does. But again, Andrew cocktail Cortez. She's she's a different standard bearer. And this was this. This is the way the socialist behaves. You know, I I gotta have my fancy problem in Washington DC. And you know, what what why don't all my stand give me money to do that? By the way, you're at this salaries of congress aren't great salaries people, you know, people get paid wealth to represent the country. And you know, go fund me come on give me a break. A go fund me. Let's call him. We call them limousine. Liberals, how about swanky socialists? These are these are the sway people. Those selection. Flaky. So. What I when I saw when I thought when I read the Article V day, she gets to Washington DC, and she's there with the climate change activists protesting, Nancy Pelosi's office. It is going to be a rich. Spite the liberals are going to have one with one another. You know, what we're now up junior sit back and go this is how dysfunctional their party is this is what the real agenda of the party is. And they're going to have a food fight. And if they want to do that, we'll get out of the way, and let them have it, but under cement, Mark my words, Nancy Pelosi. I don't believe will have the votes to become the speaker. There's a rebellion. And I think they'll find somebody even more liberal more progressive and more radical than Nancy if she doesn't go into the tweet us in waters, Maxine Waters for speaker, Maxine Waters for speaker.

"Five meeting with you on this Monday. Thank you for listening is always a cost this great state of Wisconsin. And wherever you are joining me on the line. Now, he's he's been a pretty frequent guest in the last year. So congressman, Sean Duffy. Good morning, congressman, hey, good morning. Steve. Thanks. I want to get your thoughts. I about the the shooting at the synagogue in Pittsburgh. But then I wanna ask you a follow up on that question that that events happened over the weekend. Eleven people losing their lives to someone who targeted members of the Jewish community. Your thoughts on that. Yeah. Obviously, it was horrific in another example of you know, what appears to be a drain person full. You're taking a firearm, and maximizing destruction. No, I just I'm so grateful for law enforcement as well. I mean here you have you know, those first responders gave him the same and Russian and obviously they were injured. But obviously saved a lot of lives. In the meantime, and we're grateful for them. I know that everyone whose lives were scared and that replica was grateful for the fastest fonts as well. As somebody who lived through a mass shooting in the city of oak creek now six years ago. The question always turns to after the moments of grief individuals and all that is what should we do? I'm gonna ask you from the perspective of a congressperson congressman from Wisconsin. Is there a role for congress here? Is there something we can do whenever gonna stop these completely? But is there something we can do and whatever level that might be in whatever way we could do it. They could could potentially we slow these people down. I think it's I think it's hard question. And most people want to go to how do we implement gun control? I was at a a candlelight vigil last night with our Jewish community and several people came up and doubts that the knee jerk reaction. The the the problem is you know, receive in Europe. It says, no, you know. Right goals in his hand guns handguns, there's vehicles or pipebombs. You know? So I I think people want to do harm are the ones that will find a tool or whether machete. You want to see the problem is there's better degradation of the family for a number of reasons, and we see people that are being raised in. This could be sometimes my wife goes nuts, FOX in the weekend. Why congress being a single person at home with your kids is really tough? But I think it makes a lot harder to and so I think we're raising kids a lot angrier, and they dive into these video games violent video games. I think the seeds of love are are planted in a in a family around the dinner table, and I see that not happening as much anymore. And you see a lot more kids that are angry and detached and lonely. And the end result of that is I think really uncaring hateful potential behavior. And so we're getting back to I think family and raising good kids. That's the answered all this was causing congressman Sean Duffy, join me. So how do we do that in the country that celebrates the freedoms of people when we have as I said earlier on the program an anger management problem. Lot of it has to do as you said with with the way, we raise our kids families have disintegrated. How do we how do we make a difference in this problem and mass shootings are occurring? A lot more frequently than a lot of us would like to see let's put it that way. I'm a family side. And I'm a conservative, and I go who gets to decide what conservatism that Steve? And I think that it's important that we support family support the tax code. There was a recent article that said if we have a Brooks right now at one point seven children per per couple. I don't know how you have a point seven Talbot. That's what he averages. Just two point one. And if you ask, you know, couples they wanna have on average two point six children say one kid, but they're not maybe you want to incentivize parents to have kids, and whether given I just won't tax breaks for for couples who have you know, three or more or your help them with their student laws. Don't forgive it. But if moms have gone to school want to go back into the home and raise kids until they get back in the workforce helped with their student loans. Let supports family is in public policy. I think that would be incredibly helpful. And I think what's not helpful. I listened to the media. And I I'm shocked that they wanna sold us up a feet of Donald Trump. And I I just this this this moving I don't know if you've talked about that. But this is the boycott Israel anti Jewish movement. And it, you know, it was the platform of the democrat party that was debated. I don't want to talk about politics. But when they're sinus throw anti-semitism at our feet. It makes me angry because I'm in the congress. I see how Republicans out on Jewish pro Israel issues, and how Democrats vote, and I it makes me mad that this stuff gets skewed. Instead of talk about the politics. We should talk about what are we doing wrong right now. This wasn't happy. We had a lot of guns thirty years ago. And this wasn't happening when I was growing up. So what changed the deep dive? We have to happen. Look at our society in our communities and go, what's what's different what's gone wrong? And how hard conversation about fixing it can conservatives lead lead. The way on this conversation. I know you, and I've talked about this before and conservatives are an interesting group, we tend to believe in family, and faith and all that that presents for our life and our lifestyles. But can we lead the way in a in a in a more diverse country a country that maybe doesn't think like you? And I think I think we can you know, but you you're gonna get some hate for it. But I look at me. We'll take a step back as there's kind of became the dog motley interest digits thinking, and we had this thought process, I think on trade, you know, we had to be free traders, and to be free trade it could be unfair for the American worker that was that was the dog conservatism until Thompson hold on a second. I'm about free trade to but it has to be fair for us when people take advantage of America. And the American worker we have to rethink how we're engaging in trade. And because of that leadership you've seen a lot more conservatives and Republicans who do believe in free trade also come along to go. Yeah, you're right. Mr President has to be fair. So to your point I think conservatives can lead on this would be more thoughtful on how we support, you know, young people who want to have families and in in raise the middle loving home and have a society that's far more carrying and far more engaging and less detached and less law. By the way. I don't think the lack to they hate guns. But you know, every kid my did my kids wanna watch movies. They're all the ones that are blowing things up in the shooting each other and the games that come from there. They're the most violent things ever. We gotta have again Kennedy's conversation. And Steve I think, you know, guys like us can lead the conversation to find out. You know, what the right solution congressman, Sean Duffy, take a quick break. After the break. I do want to shift the politics of big big elections coming up in Wisconsin next week. Sean Duffy, congressman from Wisconsin more with next here. WTMJ these video with.

"Tax agreements required Netflix screens terms apply he'll Welcome back to the. Program Here's that. Paul I was referring to this. Is a public opinion strategies pull macgyver institute has got a great. Article right up on this it takes a look at, eight pivot districts in Wisconsin These are districts that, went for Trump either just a little bit over fifty percent or just on the line and the Democrats wreck in our potential. Pickoffs in our state that could give them control of the legislature particularly. In, the competitive, Senate districts that, competitive, Senate districts that would be Mark align seat and Larsen seat that they're looking at so these are these are sort of Sean Duffy. Parts of the state well Mark line not. So much, but but a lot of these districts are in the Sean Duffy parts of the state that went surprisingly. In many people's estimate for Trump. So you've got Scott Walker in, these districts so again this is a. Poll of Justice districts is leading the as of yet unnamed democrat by about six points his approval. Rating is very strong Donald Trump's approval rating is actually Very strong in these. Districts over fifty percent in these. Districts it does not look like It. Doesn't look like the Democrats are really even moving the needle in these eight swing districts this matters in our state because. Of the Democrats, do take control the legislature They can undo an awful lot of good stuff that has been. Done the most interesting thing I thought about this poll actually was how well The the questions about the Democrats policy positions actually polled very. Very very poorly seventy one percent of people for instance would vote against a candidate that would support letting half of the Wisconsin. Prison population out that's what. Every single democrat has committed to supporting sixty six percent would vote against anybody who would endorse noncitizens, voting in Wisconsin that is a policy position the Democrats have committed to anybody who would. Propose, raising Wisconsin taxes by four hundred sixty million dollars which is exactly what the. Assembly Democrats have committed to as their policy prescription going forward fifty four. Percent would vote against a democrat who would raise taxes by that much Fifty, one, percent which would. Vote against the democratic, candidate who, wanted to support allowing local governments to override the Wisconsin state constitution and restrict the right. To bear arms by law abiding citizens by the way. This does not necessarily mean that a corresponding number of people let's say. Fifty fifty one percent say. They wouldn't vote for a democrat that would restrict their right to bear arms it doesn't necessarily mean, you know that forty nine percent would it means that about thirty six percent would and. A, whole bunch of people never considered the question so they answered I don't know But fifty one percent of people already say no, that's absolutely something I would vote against and these are the policy prescriptions the Democrats have for Wisconsin incidentally so committed are they to the policy prescriptions that they have her Wisconsin this. Is in the, city of bearable I don't know if this is Bairbre sought, county I think there's. Actually might be countywide and sought county the county board has agreed to an advisory referendum asking. If local residents want the ability to enact gun control that is stricter than the state of Wisconsin's that's going to be an advisory referendum the Democrats think that's. Going to improve, turnout for them They want to commit themselves to these radical positions and that's okay I'm for that the challenge I think of the. Republican Scott Walker Brad Schimmel in particular because branch him I don't think he's really gotten out there enough is to remind. Everybody what the Democrats are committing, themselves, to remind everyone that they have committed. Themselves to massive tax increases remind. Everyone that they've committed themselves, repealing, act ten, in returning control of the budget process to the labor unions. Remember that just a couple of days. Ago the macgyver rather the Wisconsin institute for law. And liberty produced information report that said on benefits the. State of Wisconsin taxpayer has saved almost four billion dollars just on the ability of local governments to put out for competitive bid health insurance thanks to act. Ten over five billion dollars of savings. Has come back to the Wisconsin tax payer because of Acton simply because of. The changes that were made to the way union contracts were negotiated in our state so what the challenge. For the Republicans. I think, is is to remind people, that this, all matters because a whole bunch of, people don't remember would act ten is all about a whole bunch of people don't know every single day that the reason why their property taxes aren't exploiting at least from. The state level in fact the state legislature could repeal the state portion of the property tax entirely the reason. They have not seen their taxes continually their, sales taxes their income taxes constantly go up is because of one single piece of legislation act, ten but it was also a piece of legislation that was enacted back in two thousand eleven and that is a political lifetime ago so I. Think with all Republicans have to do is remind people I was there I was part of the reason wiscon- Economy led the nation when there was a recession. Going on when there were still high unemployment numbers at the national level Wisconsin had an unemployment rate that was at full employment when the US economy was. Bleeding jobs Wisconsin's manufacturing sector was adding jobs when the national economy had low confidence consumer confidence was low Wisconsin consumer confidence was, high when the business leadership of. The American, economy had low confidence in the ability of the economy to do the. Things that businesses needed to needed it to do the exact opposite. Was true in Wisconsin we had ninety seven percent of people who were surveyed who owned, businesses saying that Wisconsin's economy was going in the right direction this was when Obama was, still president because we had already put. The fundamentals into plays that, allowed us to insulate ourselves from the impact of it. Was still wreaking havoc on the US Economy now.
