So many demands on the police start breaking down. They say it is an opportunity to catch a break.

"Mocking loan. Michael very show is on. I told you that Sheila jackson-lee is leading the charge in a congressional hearing over reparations. This idea that we're somehow going to pay black people. And punish white people, which is so incredibly destructive to race relations in this country. But that's what we're here to do. We're here to tell white people that they're devils, the way Maxine Waters declared at a democrat event for the California Democrat party, a few years ago. We're here to explore and celebrate black racism against whites. So Sheila jackson-lee. At the reparations hearing had the following to say, go ahead. Thirty one percent of black children. Live in poverty compared to eleven percent of white children. The national average is eighteen percent was suggested the percentage of black children living in poverty is more than one hundred and fifty percent. That's all. More than one hundred fifty percent. That's. More than one hundred fifty percent of black children living in, I'll leave that one alone. So. But I want to move to another issue. The reparations hearing is opportunity to get Danny Glover because he's a movie star to come down before congress and talk about how black people need to get paid. And since we remember him from a lot of movies, then he must know a lot about how to solve the problems in our society. So this is what congress is spending their time on now. I don't know if this is related or not. But Sheila jackson-lee is leading the reparations charge and her staffer was just sentenced to four years in prison. For doc, seeing Republican senators during the break Cavanaugh hearings that is giving out their home phone numbers, their addresses, exposing their families to grave danger trying to give out their medical records. These are all very serious crimes. This is information her staffer came by while working for the federal government in her office, where he has access to this, this Hillary Clinton level stuff. You know, releasing federal secrets that could cause someone a great deal of pain. It could allow one of these nuts, like the guy who shot up the softball field almost killing Steve Scalise. It could allow one of those nuts to be able to get to these people and bring great harm to them, but that's not why I tell you this story that guy was sentenced Jackson Cosco was sin. Since two four years in prison for what he did. But I'm going to read to you the article by the Washington Post where they forgot to tell you that he was working for Sheila jackson-lee while this happened. I wonder if maybe it wouldn't look good. If you saw the same day that Sheila jackson-lee claiming one hundred and fifty percent of black kids are in poverty, and that her staff member was being sent off to prison that might hurt the reparations case and the reparations case is how we're going to get black voters to show up and vote for the white democrat who's going to be the nominee next year. So listen, carefully and notice that Sheila jackson-lee name is never mentioned in this headline ex Senate staffer sentenced to four years for dachshund, GOP, senators in cavenaugh confirmation fight a US judge on Wednesday sentenced two, former Democrats Senate staff member to four years in prison. Wait a minute. He's a former democrat staff member from six months before he did what he did which was the crime the point at which he committed the crime. He was a democrat congressional staffer for Sheila jackson-lee, and they don't want you to know that a judge on Wednesday sentenced. A former democrat Senate staff member to four years in prison for a burglary and hacking campaign that culminated in the single largest known theft of electric data from the Senate, and the posting of private information about Republican senators on the internet. Jackson Costco twenty-seven of the district pleaded guilty in April two dachshund the senators after being fired by one Senator and growing angry at others while watching the September twenty seventh Senate hearing that addressed sexual assault allegations against then supreme court nominee. Brad kavanagh. That's funny. This makes him seem like a disgruntled, former Senate employees when, in fact, he was actively employed by democrat, congressman at the time he did this, and they know this Costco, subsequently docs, five senators by anonymously, editing. Their Wikipedia pages to add phone numbers and home addresses. He admitted to the court, the information was quickly removed after the alterations were discovered and aids contacted authorities in. Addition to two counts of disclosing restricted personal information and one count, each of computer fraud. Costco, confessed to one count each of witness tampering and obstruction of Justice by threatening a staffer who caught him on a computer in the office of Senator Maggie Hassan democrat from new New Hampshire, where he was a computer administrator before he was fired in may of two thousand eighteen judge Thomas HOGAN of the US district court for the district of Columbia said, Costco intended, to hurt people with whom he disagreed committing a vicious offense in an increasingly intemperate and uncivil world in which the judge noted a gunman in two thousand seventeen open fire on Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice. Interesting, the judge said, people should realize, especially young people. You simply cannot do this without facing serious consequences Also Wednesday. Prosecutors charged another Hassan staffer they allege had been persuaded by Costco to try to wipe down Senator Senate computers he hacked. Well, do I need to remind you that that's exactly what Hillary Clinton staffer did? I don't know about you, but the first time I ever heard of the term bleach bit was when Hillary's staffer used that product to wipe down the computers where the alleged state secrets were being held and exchanges that probably would have sent her to prison, if anybody actually wanted to enforce the law, this guy gets four years in prison, and should this Sheila, jackson-lee staffer and Hillary Clinton is still out there getting paid not well mind you to give speeches with her husband. But here's the best part. It turns out that he's suffering from these serious mental health problems, and that he's high on coke and all sorts of other drugs. And the judge said, I can't believe you could function much less work for.

I'm not saying everything's perfect right now and everything's all cleaned up and DOJ and everything. But people on the democrat side, violate the law are not getting away with it like they were under the Obama administration. This was a democrat staff. For what did he do? What happened?

A former staffer for Democrats Senator Maggie Hassan from New Hampshire. This guy by the name of Jackson Cosco, if that's not a name. I've never heard of Jackson car school where Jackson Cosco apparently is parents are very wealthy. He was a staffer, Jackson Cosco was fired by Maggie Hassan's office. She's Democrats center, he was an IT guy. He uses an accomplice show to get back into the office computer system, and he puts in a key logger device, basically stealing passwords by logging all the key strokes. He winds up getting a whole bunch of information, senators home addresses medical records, everything. He basically hacks the Senate system during the bread cavenaugh. This guy's a huge lib. He's a Sandra. Supporter. He's a Bernie Sanders acolyte. He doesn't like the questioning by rand Paul Mike Lee and others Orrin Hatch. So he goes online and releases their personal information online, according to the reporting, he then threatens extortion by threatening to release their children's health records of other ones. So we extorts them. This kid is a total, trainwreck. So apparently he thought he was going to get away with this. Well, not so much, ladies and gentlemen. He winds up getting arrested the sadly the capitol. Police, apparently according to reporting by Luke, they couldn't even find the key logger device where it was. He must have really embedded this or hit it in pretty well. But this kid, I think dot he was going to get a slap on the wrist show. And he said at one point he goes, well, I was taking some drugs, or whatever it may be an influence me. And then they found notes in his apartment where he's laughing. Like, look, I ruined Orrin Hatch, Republican senators wife's birthday. He thinks it's funny. So they, he this kid is apparently some son of wealthy people who thought he was going to come knocking their wealth rating, but he was gonna get off Joe. He got forty eight months in prison. Oh, so Jackson Cosco takes the cake, for by far the worst sleazeball of the week and smile, a little bit today knowing again, that people who are doing some of them again. Not all Hillary. Dodd hold the Bockel. We all have big problems with DOJ's doing with spy gate and everything. But this kid Costco, thought he was going to get past and didn't only get a slap on the wrist. He got a total back into the face. Forty eight months. I don't know what he's going to serve, but ladies and gentlemen, that's a long time in prison. So he did not get off on this.

"Incredibly important to make sure that the American people are never again used as pawns like this. So let's let's talk about the way to deal because after after the temporary agreement with made you said we can find a way forward. You also Senator told Bloomberg news just in December, quote, we need for pleased, fencing and other. Kinds of barriers in certain parts of our border. Does that mean that you would agree to vote for a deal that does include funding for a border barrier? Last thursday. We had a bipartisan discussion on the Senate floor about the importance of ending the shutdown which there was by partisan agreement was needless and harmful to the American people and our economy, and that we all pledged to work in good faith to find common ground on border security, and that's what I'm committed to doing. And I think that really starts with making sure we're listening to the experts on the front lines on this. So that they include strategic fencing places strategic fencing in certain places. Did you hear that? And I correct myself not Representative Assan, but Senator has on. I think I referred to her going into the sound clip as Representative Assan, she's Senator Maggie Hassan, of course of New Hampshire saying that. Yeah, we may need some of that strategic fencing if you will. And I think that they're taking a look at a lot of what we're hearing about with regard to new caravans forming moving through Central America headed to the US southern border. As well. As what it really takes to slow down. If not flat out, stop illegals from entering the country, particularly illegals who are dead set on getting in for the express purpose of breaking our laws, and gaming the system. So they are saying something qualitatively different qualitatively different from what the party leadership have been saying the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer who were saying, we're not gonna talk about a wall. We're not going to give money for wall. We're not gonna build a wall. Well, apparently, if they bother to take the time to talk to some of the members of their own party in congress, no less, they might be able to formulate a more sensible common sense statement that is moored in reality as opposed to politicking and brinksmanship eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five eight hundred nine to three WD TK the John McCullough show. Darrelle would sitting in for John. So what do you think does it sound to you like the Democrats are coming around the president's way of thinking? Or is it the mainstream media? You may recall. I said just a moment ago. It sounded is one of the reporters talking to one of the Democrats about border wall. Funding seeing disappointed that they wouldn't affect back the idea of border wall fencing of one sort or another or is it that the mainstream media have just been missing in action derelict in duty and John's not bothering to report this part of the story. It wouldn't be the first time eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five eight hundred nine to three W D T K to join the conversation. I talked yesterday about the state of the union address. The speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi has sent of course, as you know. And as I reported on this show yesterday. And invitation to the president of the United States to deliver that state of the union address on February fifth February fifth is when the president will enter the house and address the country. And I'm sure that the president will make his case for not only more secure borders, but a consensus on border wall funding and building, and I hope that people aren't triggered when they hear the use of the word wall. Eight hundred nine to three w DT Cajun's listening to the program in east point as a comment. Jim. Thanks so much for calling. Hi. Even with the concessional strategic fencing. Get through fences right now. A wall is going to go down into the ground. You know, eight ten feet if it's thirty feet high. You Michael Foot? They're gonna dig under that like they're doing now. Stab many people. The president is not talking about a fence. He knows that. We're playing semantics with regard to some Democrats, and what they will say or won't say about how the wall. The wall is constructed. The president is talking about steel barriers. I'm pretty sure we're talking about barriers that go down at the very least fifteen twenty feet. With that lady Senator said we said a fence, you'll will go with a wall or barrier. She said spent we'll remember the Democrats are into playing these semantic gains because they think it protects their base. They think it keeps their base in line and on board with them. But rather than listening to her use of the word fans think about the president's original vision? I know the president's areso, but the only thing that Democrats will be satisfied with is a revolving sense, then like a revolving door, we'll see how how the president holds their feet to the fire when it comes to exactly the kind of structure, he has in mind because as you know, Jim he's talking about an all of the above choice to border security, which includes a wall or a wall or barrier built of steel he says to see through it is going to be very important, but to have other high tech implements associated with it is also important. He's also indicated that it will not run two thousand plus miles from sea to shining sea because we have natural land barriers as you. Well know, Jim that can get the job done on their own, but we can all meant that with fencing between those barriers that becomes very difficult to either scale over or get under, and I have to believe that the president, and we have seen some. Of these prototypes. The president has in mind a barrier that will be almost impenetrable, Jim, regardless of the semantical games being played by the Democrats. I hope he sticks with it. Because I don't take the Democrats will go with anything other than maybe a two foot high. Yeah. And you know at that at that point. I guess the president can tell them to take the proverbial long walk off the short pier. Jim thanks so much for your call eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five eight hundred nine to three w d TK. How are your concerns? Like the concerns that Jim has expressed. You think somehow they're going to get the president in the room? And then somehow turned the tables on them in terms of what it is. They will finance, you know, they're talking about this idea of having an exploratory committee to come in and give them or listen to the the professionals on the front line telling them what it is they need. Well, the president's already done that. And that's been factored into all of the engineering designs. And there are multiple designs that the president is considered. Hiring. Are they going to waste more of your taxpayer dollars to do more engineering surveys and studies because as you know, that's nothing more than a delay tactic much in the same way. They delayed the construction of the keystone X L pike line, which they said needed more and more and more and more environmental impact. Studies after initial environmental impact studies had already been done the way that the Obama administration forestalled the construction of what they thought was an environmentally dangerous project that would help increase the oil wealth of American oil producers as well as Canadian oil producers was somehow going to be harmful even though multiplied. Millions of dollars had been spent studying the subject, the president wanted to commit to even more millions of dollars for impact studies might that be a delaying tactic by some of these Democrats who now seem to be coming around to the.
