"As it's Republican senator. Still with us our contributors Rick Davis and genius I know. So, Senator Thank you so much for being with us. Appreciate it. Give us your sense right now of Nevada, where it stands in this election. Why was it a RNC convention party yesterday in northern Nevada at an opportunity to talk to a number of Republicans. I think the base is still there. You Condell by the convention today that the purpose of it is to try to expand that base. They spent the first three days kinda solidify that base on it. Now it's time to reach out that last speaking that you guys just head on. Alice did a great job. But you can see they're trying to push this now beyond the base. A and and time will tell. We'll know here, probably with the next few days with some pulling that out out there how well it works. So, Senator, you know your state terribly well. My understanding is part of the reason that Nevada has been shifting as it appears to have done in recent elections is there's been a change. Actually, the demography, people moving to the states and people living in the state give us a sense of how the demographics of driving the politics Yeah. You're absolutely right on that. Things are actually really changed here in the states about it. People are really Trying to get outside away from California, and you can see with technology and the data driven ah, diversity that we're doing the economy here throughout the state. We're getting a lot of new companies coming in from the Bay Area and busts Angeles. They're bringing their workforce with us. These are good people, but they have a tendency of bringing their boarding voting habits with them. So it may want to get out of California, but they seem to want the same law. So anyway, it is changing. It is changing, and it's making it difficult for the conservative voice to get out. There just means we have to work harder. And as long as we're committed to do that, I think we're gonna be just part Senator Heller, how our people on the ground and Nevada feeling about the security of their vote. As they look towards the general election. There was some consternation across the country, but I've noticed some coming out of your state. Specifically. Are you hearing some of that? It's probably right now. This is Jeannie. Correct. This is this is probably the number one issue right here in the state of Nevada. They just changed our election laws allowing for voter harvesting harvesting, meaning that a stranger can come into your home, Help you vote and then walk out of your home with your ballot. I mean, what could possibly go wrong with that scenario? You know, Jeannie, that has been a felony since the 19 nineties here in the state of Nevada, and the Legislature just turned it into good governance. There's a lot of people that are really concerned about what this vote harvesting is going to mean and what impact could that have on a viable action here in the matter? Senator, This is Rick Davis from Washington. Good to see you tonight, and I want to ask you about the economy in Clark County. I mean, Clark County is like a critical county for US Republicans and And no industries were hurt Mohr through the Koven, then hotels and restaurants, of which I think Nevada and Clark County is ground zero for the most employees in this category per capita in the world, probably Is it recovering? How's it looking? And is that impact going to be felt in the election? Actually, Rick. That's probably the most important economic question that we have in the stand about her right now, If you've seen the data, they're anticipating that 25% of the hotel's chains out there behind in their rent payments and making their mortgage payments. No difference in Las Vegas. Now he's had 40 million people come into Las Vegas every year, and we're seeing baby. A fraction of that 20% 25% of people are willing to get on an airplane to fly into into Las Vegas. Right now we have about 11 hotels, major hotels in Las Vegas that aren't even open. Because there's not enough business to keep trying to draw people into war into under the strip and get to some of the more thie some other casinos where they could get a traffic out there, But it's difficult. I'll tell you right now, Rick, if they tell you that the unemployment state Nevada was 12 12.5%. Double it double it, and you're probably close to where we all set now in the state of Nevada. So, Senator if I could just follow up? I mean, how do you think that falls on political levels? I mean, obviously, part of Donald Trump's record as president so far has been to be able to create jobs he ran on that it was one of his kept promises until Covad. Is that unemployment? Is that advantage Democrats or or or they're going to say, Well, the guy who's going to bring us back eyes going to be Trump's. I'm going that way. That's a great question, And I'm not quite sure I do know this. I do know this Trump It has a business plan that's out there. Today. You want to create 10 million jobs in the next 10 months. And he wants to create a million new businesses in that same period of time. Now, tell me what binds you know. Playing it explain is to convince you that he's not Donald Trump thinks that that may get him elected. He has no business plan out there. If you look at the markets right now, I think the stock market trading at the highs and it's at right now is already discounted. I think they believe Trump's going to win. To be more specific and answering your question. In the month of July, we had the new reports for new voter registration in the state. Nevada. More Republicans registered into bed it, They're Democrats. And this is what happens. I think when weakened the culinary Union's the teachers unions with so many people unemployed right now they have less volunteers to get out there. And two registered voter, So everything just stays the same. I think you feel A moderate to conservative that a tilt until these unions can get back into business to answer your question. I think a lot of these unions A lot of these organizations have a tendency of voting to the left. People have lost their jobs or going back to the states. Where where they came in. There's a lot of people in the battle. Don't believe they're from Nevada. They say I'm from California. I'm from Michigan. I'm from Florida. And they're going back right now. With the level of unemployment we have right now telling you all of that. I believe it does help Donald Trump. I think it's the base the Democratic base that is hurting in this in this reception and that they're losing their actually losing voters as we speak today because there's no jobs in southern Nevada. I want to keep our audience up to speed on what's going on the convention..

through that now the group of friends that to get together fairly regularly because our conservative confab we're talking about the the coming weekend all that I and I put it out to everybody you know

five hundred dollar fine ninety days jail could be priceless what a morning wrote a good piece on that was on Facebook call from Salt Lake global and he was examining the issue and and when I started glazing over after a while but that he seemed to feel the crystalline overreach and overreach but you know and and you know this when they do the over reach I gave the example of Katrina that doesn't get sorted out for two or three years down the line you said senator Heller wanted to thanks for the cooperation and it get keep your papers in order to keep your papers in order all right let's see

I'm for me campaign we went hands down the people in the bad arch that they're disgusted with the Congress right now to discuss with the games are being played but they're trying to grab the president the using this impeachment at the impeachment process it they're taken out of context you're actually making a mockery of the cells and the people who matter upset their little a little upset about taking place you know what's interesting we've got a lot of the things going on as well we can throw some of the questions I about that as well because I know fifteen of the counties in the state of Nevada seventeen are blood red but two counties are either very purple are very blue now would be why showing Clark and you know this is a perfect example of what's going on I mean Washoe is where the real airport is and they're they're gonna support Elizabeth but they won't support Nevada's own dean Heller what the hell is that about what do you look at the policies that have taken place is time from Republicans not sidelines you know it it's it's a it's basically all hands on deck if you want a Republican you know you also have to is the people some someone before the he just sat there criticized those days are over if you want to help great if you don't shut up I think we see a lot of people that are were were quite before not getting in getting a line the coming out there helping you know we were not to give him a chance nothing for chances front the first Republican president Donald Trump office in the United States will be opened in Washoe. this month think about that the very first office for the present estate will bring in Washoe county will plan the flank we're leaving nothing to chance whatsoever we have many other to build from part canning. and throughout the state the buy in from the rules committee has been phenomenal as always we we I mean that they're they're just they're sold his manner in the game I don't play the politics dirty politics we saw last month during my election they don't buy into it what they want to do the one I went and I know together we went and this is what it is we're not sitting or handling or not whatever done playing the games we're calling people out you want to be involved involved we want you we definitely want to be involved we want people to be have have their voices heard but you have to be United if the come together and fight and that was gonna come down to you know the irony here last week last Friday the Clark County Republican Party office was vandalized somebody threw a big boulder through the window the same window it a week earlier two weeks earlier they add some scrap into the glass all right and then when they're in a really rough they rest they roughed up the office and they stole. I guess he stole a coffee pot I don't know exactly but the bottom line is this that goes down is a perfect opportunity for that the chairman of Clark County galvanize the party what's he do he says it what it was a political I'm like are you kidding me sure it was political what is what people have to realize Republicans are being attacked nationally here. look at it's in my neighborhood it's basically half mile mark my house in the neighborhood I grew up in any call them trash they're not trash those people neighborhood we look we go to out this the old Joe wells which is lose diner we go to lose diner which is a. Republicans independents Democrats big deal a lot of old school Democrats there. Sunday morning I'm getting hit with his uncle give out had not yet they're talking about then with the paper yeah there you hold me about why would you call stress and we all live in the neighborhood well the state Republican Party culture no no no not me you know this is a point where you have to realize we have Democrats are coming to our site we have been in the past to come to our side because they don't like the games are being played they don't like the hypocrisy that is being played on us time and time again so look at the market leadership is discussing document even up to chance we're coming in planning our flag working the trump campaign one thousand percent we hit the ground running you saw yesterday we're we're coming out for anybody who's up as a pitchman I guess the progress they were coming after you that's all elected officials well if you're give the president we're coming at you know that now you leave ME one other question last week the only a congressman from the state of Nevada had got a got some words with regard to the press being misquoted your good friend mark comedy Congress about it was it was stated said that he was looking for him are going after trump to impeach him which was not true. one thousand percent big news and even Marc and they try to correct it they would not correct the state. he even said on on on the publicly he put up what was discussing about this is everything we put out to correct it they would publish. on Sunday even said he's for impeachment that's not what he said that's not wasted whatsoever and Congress for them they don't let us not forget. it was the one he was in charge okay thank you chairman campaign last cycle so this evening as the present your full support Davis said that the coming year whatever day is all about openness all about fairness and he knows for a fact he knows for a fact. the games are being played here the stuff is just point is a joke thank god for that to be a this was a prosecutor. the thing is under the pressure states more importantly people in about a. the local talk enough without this people in about a should be a step that they're trying to undo your vote they're trying to cure votes away from take your guns away centric European speech away think about the other sites trying to do every time we turn around the twenty something else to take away from us that's what we have to unite support that was about to publicly Democrats independents but no one takes something away from me nobody we work together to make America better not to be not to become victims not to serve our meat and that's the Democrats and this call. democratic Congress to try to do that sort of put you on your knees and make you Sir. my friend which would you have now which is never seen before in American history if you have Democrats that are joining forces with Republicans because it wall street's already announced that they will not support a progressive agenda and your what you really have is you have thirty percent of this country his thinking socialism is the way to go seventy percent are saying no way am I I'm I'm going to go on record here I believe that trump will not only win but he will pick up on stage who will pick up Minnesota he's gonna pick up New Mexico he's gonna add them in the trough and he could take Nevada if. the state of Nevada as chairman in Washoe and Clark get off their **** and do their jobs. more about that you know what we're we're going to be a good people in both those counties they want to work and tell you right now and we're we're happy to have more happy to be involved you for the support you saw we did Justin Washoe dealt with the tip of the iceberg that was nothing that was that was just a shot across the bow you have no idea what I have coming ready for wrestling but this is the point you talked about what what the thirty percent the country wants to do this this young you they've never had to struggle. I understand they don't understand what it is to fight for quite a freedom they're not fighting for their freedom they want everything handed to him well guess what someone's putting that bill someone always have to combine paid for when they sit down they will play the game the player parents basement they want to you know I want free popsicles I don't want to work I don't own a house I don't know what responsibility they do not want to grow up and that's what I'm here for this country we need to have we have great youth members of the growing up the really start to come in and we're very proud of receiving a university campus about college missing that yet you only you in our. and the rest the colleges. around the country that was big AT last month. they want to make sure that there's a future going for them but to preserve the right look many of our old step fought and died for that's what's important but these other people these lackluster only want to do is show was streamed protest at them cry the older people that they're they're telling America seven one to get back at them well yeah Jacob to fill you the former chairman of the the the head of the young Republicans he's running for office I mean this he's that kind of guy we got to get elected you know he's the future of his official part those type of you know rain and the rest of us on the rest of the Middle Ages the two guys that we offer factored in there digging and digging but the point is that. if they don't they don't think they have to know what's going on the future and they try to tell their friends they're gonna have to show difference because we have people right now they're doing stuff for free. no one when you get it for free you want to change it. you know as well as I do free is only temporary. but you can't tell the stupid people that enemies stupidly if every disrespecting now the word because if you want to dis respect this country you want to burn the flag your you want you want the flag on your Nikes you you want to do more disrespect the people at a lot for your freedom ahead of us. and the little integrated and take it for granted.

"So authorities to do that kind of activity would be very helpful and looking forward to working with you on that as as days. Go by excellent. We look forward to it. Also, and I will say user fees funding needed research. That's always a good platform networks. Okay. Yell back. Thank you. Mr chairman. Thank you, Senator Blackburn, Senator club ajar. Thank you very much. Welcome to both of you. You know, what a leader of the US has banned when it comes to space, and as you also know were facing competition from other nations China's plan to construct its own space station in low-earth orbit that China's space station or CSS and the CSS may watch as soon as this year and China's already begun inviting other countries to apply to conduct experiments aboard. It the European space. Agency's reportedly are working with China. How are NASA and the office of space commerce planning to ensure that the US remains competitive in space explorations? Senator. We we continue to move out doing a, stunning achievements. Going to the international space station where we have our international partners already on board. And as we go to the next step, which is to the moon this time when we go to the moon to actually stay, and that means using our international partners having them. Join us in our effort to go to the moon keeps them in our sphere, which I think is important. I can tell you right now as the head of the agency I made with our international partners regularly, and they are very excited about going to the moon with us which has never been done before where we go to the moon with international partners. So I think that's a critical capability to achieve. So there are I think good stories to tell right now. But you are right. Okay. I'm as mister O'Connell long line in your testimony. You highlight the need for strong protections of US intellectual property rights for cutting edge space technology recent study found that China's using foreign investment as a means to transfer technology assessed at approximately three hundred billion a year, clear threat to our US intellectual rights protections. What's your agency doing to address this issue? So may I respond first Senator to your to your first sheriff, we're in our advocacy work. We're actually trying to understand the value. The ecosystem that will support the space exploration that NASA has in December. We held a space investment summit secretary Ross was essentially asking what's the longer term investment climate for the space industry from even beyond where it is. Now just last week. We held a space insurance summit. Which in what do you think are the main barriers to growth for the commercial space sector? I spoke in my remarks about regulatory efficiency the extent to which companies need to come to different places when they come to town for for licensing, we have an idea vision for something we call a one stop shop where companies come to one place at the office. Ideally of bureau at some point where they can come to one place. We have details from other agencies that can actually provide okay. Authority on on those issues Q and A quick Diddy intellectual property because that's one more. We're relying heavily on NIST another component organization in the cybersecurity framework and some of the things that they're doing in broad cyber storms to apply that to space as well. Giving companies notice of some of the challenges that we're seeing in the market as well as listening to what they're seeing in the market when when their systems are threatened or vulnerable. Very good. I worked with Senator Heller on the inspiring the next space pioneers, innovators Reese. Researchers and explorers act that was our Bill to authorise NASA to encourage women to study in stem fields and also a different one. We did together to make sure women researchers can get their ideas into the commercial world. Both bills were signed by the president in twenty seventeen administrator. Breitenstein can you provide an update on Nasr's efforts? I know we've talked about public private partnerships. But how would efforts to increase the recruitment and retention of women and minorities, something that's important. Just that NASA. But in science as a whole, yes, ma'am. So NASA is very focused on this. It doesn't take long to walk around the NASA headquarters in those in those areas that you mentioned and recognize that women are underrepresented like about women about half the workforce. But not twenty five percent at NASA. Yes, ma'am. That's probably right and in size, we've learned from Hidden Figures. Okay. And in some fields, it might even be less than twenty five percent. Okay. So so. So how it's twenty five percent of stem worker says okay are okay? Nasa probably has even less buy. Yes. Keep going. We are making great advancement on the science fields at NASA we've had statistically significant improvements in recruiting and retention. I guess retaining women in these fields. When it comes to the engineering, we're not we're not where we need to be. We continue to make progress. Some of the things that we do. And we're doing every day. We have a Merican astronauts that are female, and we're making sure that they're getting out in the public in doing engagement with young ladies at the same time this month. This is a great story. We have the first all female spacewalk. So we're going to have to women leave the international space station and do critical work on the outside of the international space station, the minority front. Yes, ma'am. So the same same challenges apply there, and we are working diligently to increase their representation as well through the same mechanisms. But I think the big thing that we can do is continue to to make these do these stunning achievements because that inspires everybody gets everybody. More activated. Thank you very much. Shaded NASA administrator Jim Breitenstein with Kevin O'Connell director of the Commerce Department's office of space commerce last week before the Senate Commerce hearing. Mr Brian Stein. On the engineering. Universities could help you there to this, sir. Thank you. Senator gardner. Thank you. Mr chairman. Thank you administrator for being here. Mr mcconnell. Thank you very much for the testimony today. Thank you as well. For your recent visit to Colorado and the deputy administrator as well, we celebrated the seventy anniversary of the last physics space physics laboratory in boulder university of Colorado. Great partnership between NASA Colorado receives more NASA funding, I think than any other state in the country and the work that we do we talked about a little NASA center perhaps in Colorado and the operators. We have to continue engaging Colorado narrow space and space front. Last. Visit I think the only sort of university research control consortium in the in the United States that has sent products technology equipment to all eight planets and Pluto that was a tough one for me to say eight planets and Pluto, but. Things change. Thank you very much for being here. And. Would you say that the United States is a healthy commercial launch industry capable of launching all NASA missions today? I would say we are very healthy. I would also say that there's always room for more capacity. Sometimes. Launches. Gets you know, we we step on each other. Sometimes the different, you know, we've got the FAA that is responsible for commercial launches and we've got Nassir responsible for its launches and Noah responsible for its launches. And when you think about the DOD, they of course, have a whole lot of launches. So sometimes we step on each other. But at the same time, we are a very weird. I watch industry self is healthy people, very helpless. This job. Are you familiar with requirement in current law? That requires the use of commercial domestic launch providers for US government funded payloads unless no such launch vehicle exists. I am aware. It's my understanding. I think that understanding of me and my colleagues in congress because NASA is paying for cargo delivery to the international space station. Those there's a taxpayer funded missions that must be flown by US launched providers. Would you agree with that assessment? Yes. And I think we've got a strongly enforce these provisions to make sure that we are ensuring that that domestic competition remains strong. We're the only nation in the world that can support multiple competitive large commercial launch providers. Just like you laid out. We should not starve competition by shipping goes taxpayer funded missions overseas to state subsidize launched providers. I think that's something we have to. Yes, sir. And Senator Al tell you I've had that conversation with our international partners who are very interested in launching. Basically spacecraft built in the United States commercial spacecraft on their rockets funded by the US tax payer, and I was very clear that that would probably receive a lot of resistance in the Senate. So I might have gotten ahead of you on that. But we've we've had that conversation already with our international partners. And of course, and you know, this I will follow the law. Thank you minister. Bridgeton? Thank you very much space policy directive one requires NASA to return to the moon. I think you've had some discussions about that this morning already with commercial and international partners. What are the broader challenge is that as we look at the moon as we look at the overall mission that ensure US remains a leader in that exploration of space. So the key. I mean, I can't say this enough the key to making sure that we remain a leader is to do. Stunning things to do to do things that other nations can't do that entices other nations to partner with us to accomplish those objectives space policy directive one as you just mentioned we're going to the moon. The president said go to the moon. He said go with commercial partners, go with international partners there. Now more space agencies on the face of the planet than ever before we want as many of those as possible to be with us under the constraints of the law, of course. And at the same time, we're going to for the first time utilize the resources of the moon, the water ice that we ten years ago discovered is there in hundreds of millions of tons so water ice is air to breathe water to drink. It's certainly it's hydrogen and oxygen which is rocket fuel. So it's all there in mass quantities. And we want to utilize it, and then, of course, retire risk and take those technologies and capabilities to Mars so what I can tell you is that as the head of the agency. When I met with our international partners. They are extremely excited about partnering with with us on these endeavors the idea that the next time we go to the moon. Yes. We will have American astronauts there with American flags on their shoulders, but it very well. Could be that. We are there side by side with astronauts from other countries with their flags on their shoulders American leadership. So that that ultimately is our objective to provide that leadership to make sure everybody stays with us in our sphere. As we move forward. Thank you administrator. Thank you for your interested in the space symposium in Colorado was wealthy do a phenomenal job. And we just appreciate your participation. We'll be there next month. Mister Breitenstein has rush has partnership with Russia been a success. This is a tough question. And I understand there's all kinds of terrestrial challenges geopolitical between our two countries. This relationship goes back to nineteen seventy five the height of the Cold War, the Apollo Soyuz program when after Apollo seventeen we brought our our astronauts Home Russia decided that they wanted to partner with us instead of competing with us. So we move forward with the policy is from there. We have the shuttle MIR program now, of course, we've got the international space station program and Russia is very interested in partnering with us when we go to the moon. What is fascinating about this relationship is that through all of the turmoil from nineteen probably seventy three when the project began all the way up until today there have been terrestrial disputes and challenges and geopolitical issues, and yet it has never spilled over. I wouldn't say never I would say that we have been able to work through the challenges in space, and I think that's a unique capability, and so you need channel of communication the partnership that I have with the head of roscosmos has been strong. They've been very helpful to us when we take our astronauts to the international space station on Russian Soyuz rockets. So it has been a strong partnership. But certainly I understand it's unique. But it's a good partnership for space. Thank you very much. Senator Blumenthal was Senator Roger wicker committee chair. Thanks chairman..

"If you are hoping to rent in Nevada, lady luck is not smiling on you. According to the most recent information from the Nevada housing division. There's a huge gap between need and availability statistics from twenty seventeen show that while the number of rental units needed by Nevada has more than two hundred nine thousand there are just under thirty thousand available for rent. In other words of those of you in the hunt for apartment housing only ten percent of you even have a shot of getting a place. That fact might be why many say the need for housing is the biggest challenge facing the state one of those people is Mike has near sees the president and CEO the development. Authority of western Nevada who told the press last winter that Cincinnati Vada anticipates fifty thousand new jobs twenty twenty it is crucial that we get more housing units. And especially ones that lower income Nevada can afford. So what what a crisis we have here. Seriously, Nevada has just a tenth of the rental units needed and never mind those needed for those coming jobs that he mentioned right, right? Part of the part of the solution. Part of what needs to happen is we need to be building more apartments period. Affordable at any level. Right. That's going to help. With those nine out of ten are several of those who are need rental apartments. There's just not enough homes being built at all. When we increase supply overall. It has some benefit has some affordability positive affordability impacts for higher income people. So middle-class people will feel some relief in what rental costs are if we're building middle-class raven higher level apartment buildings, but the benefit of affordability. We will never trickle down to the lowest income renters. So for them. There's a different set of solutions that are required, and that's to build units. Affordable for those lowest income people and to create an expand rental assistance programs to help bridge the gap between what they earn or bring in each month, and what meant to costs and are these things happening or what's the concern there? So there's some programs that do just that they can make homes affordable for the lowest income people. But none of them are being funded at the scale. That's needed today to meet the increasing demand. I want to give you a chance to to tell us your ideas about what really needs to be done, especially on the federal level to help turn turn things around I want so let let's just look quickly at a few things being done legislatively, ju just a few. Well, a house member last fall Nell Senator Jackie Rosen. She co authored a bipartisan letter urging an increase in funding for the neighbor works America. Former Nevada Senator dean Heller last fall introduce the seniors affordable housing tax credit act at its aim was to incentivize housing owners and developers to rent low to rent to low income seniors. Also last fall Senator Catherine Cortez masto hosted a roundtable with local stakeholders to discuss the need for greater access to affordable housing in Nevada rural communities, so there are some things being done. But I wanted your opinion. What what in your opinion has to be done on the hill. And in the state to really make a difference in this issue that is beyond just talk. And you know, so the thing about the affordable housing crisis is that solving. It is not going to be easy, but it's relatively simple. We know what we need to do in some communities like in Las Vegas, others, Nevada. It's some of the cities we need increased supply. And we need to build apartments that are for those who need it the most. And those are the lowest income people in other communities in some rural areas of Nevada or elsewhere in in the country. There is a sufficient supply, but it's not affordable to the lowest income people. And so it's needed there is rental assistance. So what we need at the national level. And in Nevada is increased supply of homes tar that are Ford for lowest income, but you don't mean subsidizing. Yeah. It has to be federal subsidies, especially when we're talking about the lowest income people. It's not possible for private developers to build and operate housing to cover the costs when they're renting two people who wouldn't be little they're crying. You just can't come costs. It does the math works. A federal subsidies are needed for that. I would say that the Nevada delegation is all certainly paying close attention to this and putting forward some some big solutions. I mean, Senator Heller solution that you mentioned earlier is renters tax credit idea to help. It's another former rental assistance so through the tax code. It would help low income renters bridge the gap between what they can afford, and what rent actually costs his Bill was a pretty big ambitious Bill in that case. Senators Booker Senator Harris have also introduced big ambitious bills with a rhetoric tax credit the national housing trust fund program that I talked about earlier there's a number of proposals out there to significantly expand that program to the scale necessary. So there are positive proposals. We need to just keep building the political will to invest in the.
