Sinema took Wall Street money while killing tax on investors
"Democratic senator Kirsten sinema took nearly a $1 million in Wall Street money while killing attacks meant for the very same donors Sinema of Arizona has received nearly a $1 million in campaign contributions over the past year from private equity professionals hedge fund managers and venture capitalists whose interests she has staunchly defended in Congress That's according to an Associated Press review of campaign finance disclosures the revelation comes after cinema single handedly thwarted her party's long-standing goal of raising taxes on such investors Sinema says the contributions did not influence her thinking on the matter but many of cinema's fellow Democrats see her defense of the favorable tax treatment received by such investors as indefensible I'm Julie Walker
John McGuire: The Inconsistency of My Opponent
"I am looking at my tea leaves right, and I know where I stand, I'd love for you to be my state senator. I just think the world of you. You are going to be enter primary, but I mentioned Liz Cheney. I mentioned Adam kinzinger, some of these other folks up in D.C. who say, oh, we're really good for Republicans, but man, they're doing all the beating of the Democrats. Now, you've got sort of a similar situation on a local basis, right? Oh, yeah. Yeah. I think about the term wolf in sheep's clothing. And you've heard of rhinos, there's a guy that I'm running against, he's a supervisor in Louisa county, and there's a letter floating out there from a highly decorated Vietnam veteran who also served in this senator dick black and he's done some research and some other people have done some research and they found out that my opponent ran for Republican in the West Virginia House of delegates in 1982. And then he betrayed the Republican Party at a time when the Democrats were pushing the socialist pro abortion agenda. He left the Republican Party and joined that group and he ran at the Democrat in 82 with Walter Mondale and that crowd and then he ran the Democrat in 84 and then he moved to Virginia into this district where I'm running to be the state Senate and ran against one of the most conservative members of the House delegates Frank hargrove and Hanover county, who's a very beloved member of the House of delegates and against governor Allen who was on the ballot and he basically was on the ballot with Clinton. So he supported the Clinton and never seen the guy I mentioned the word Trump support Trump, anything else. He was supposed to be, but I'll tell you what, he's getting money. And so we've got to figure that out because people don't know this. There are
State Attorneys General Need to Start Raiding Democrat Groups
"Also our state attorneys general need to start raiding Democrat groups where we believe there is crimes that exist. They need to feel as if there is pressure on pressure. I said this. And I say it for a couple of reasons. It's true, but also I'm not running for anything. We need to move the overton window of what is actually possible. So we have 27 state attorneys general, right? So let's just take a couple of these. We have BLM groups. We have the chemical castration groups. We have the groomers. We have, how about the ones in Arizona or Texas of nonprofit groups that are funneling people across the border illegally, right? Just go raid them. Get a warrant, do it legally. Here's what would happen. What would happen is if we rated the Sierra club for foreign intervention, which is what they do, they get money from Russia and all this stuff. It's been shown. If we rated BLM, all of a sudden they'd be blowing up senators phones being like, this was really dumb. You see, you never should have rated Trump's home. Good. Now you realize there's a price for this. Minute
What the GOP Needs to Do Going Forward With Kurt Schlichter
"Pass the most concerned thing we can pass. And if it's 98% of what we want, it comes back at 88%. Then we'll make a decision. But this idea of starting at 70 and getting it back at 45 is a whole problem. Well, look, I mean, the House of Representatives, I don't understand why it's like the more submissive body. They're co equal branches, although no senator will ever say that. And by the way, I've never met so many people with so much amazing self regard with so little behind it. With some exceptions. I mean, Ted Cruz is like one 9 Supreme Court cases. I'm pretty impressed by that. Okay? I'm pretty impressed by that. But a lot of these guys are just hacks. And they haven't done much. Just bored rich guys. So I don't understand why the people's representatives as opposed to what should be the states representatives and I sure wouldn't have a problem with undoing the Seventeenth Amendment because that's all different story. I don't understand why the people won't take the lead on this stuff. The thing is, it's easier for the house to take the lead. The house majority leader just says, you're going to do our speaker, just says that you're going to do this. And it happens. And if you don't believe it, just look at Nancy Pelosi. No, I mean, let's be honest here. Waltz it, she gets it done. She is. Look, she's a good politician. And you shouldn't underestimate Nancy Pelosi. She is going to have these guys do this suicidal IRS expansion act of vote. And they're all going to do it. They're all going to do it.
The FBI Has Become the Mafia With Kash Patel
"This is not a novel challenge or issue. Nixon, there was a debate for years, for years, between the U.S. government, the national archives, and the Nixon estate as to which documents were personal and pertain to him and were to be kept by him and which has to be surrendered back to the archives. The way that was settled cash was years and years of litigation and discussions, never be correct me if I'm wrong. Never before in history was this question resolved by a raid by 30 FBI agents in plainclothes. Yeah, that's not how law enforcement works. And you know that's how politics works. It's when you have an attorney general who essentially is a beholden to the radical left agenda. And when you have a director and Chris wray at the FBI, who is beholden to nothing but his own ego, and fails to understand the simplest constitutional oversight requirements like you saw when he appeared before senator grassley last week to demand questions about whistleblower protection and also comment on the Russia hoax and he failed to do all of it. He failed to he didn't even know that some of his top lieutenants at the FBI were the same corrupt FBI agents who broke the law in the Whitman prosecution, which resulted in acquittals in the russiagate scam in the Hunter Biden hypocrisy, which was falsely labeled Russian disinformation. He had no idea to be reminded of that. And then he wanted to fly away on his private jet to his adirondack vacation home instead of answer questions before the United States Senate.
Jesse Watters Calls Out Lindsey Graham
"When Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine? Remember how angry Republicans were? Or how upset they were? How fired up they were when Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, Ukraine is not a state of the United States. Remember this, senator Lindsey Graham play cut 53. There is no off ramp in this war. Somebody is going to win and somebody is going to lose and I hope and pray and do everything in my power to make sure Ukraine wins and Putin is in charge of a state sponsor state sponsor of terrorism, that designation needs to be given to Russia. He's earned that designation. We need to pour it on when it comes to helping Ukraine. Jesse watters calls him out for this play cut 51. Why they had to raid president Trump's home 90 days before an election. Yeah, you know, and I love having you on Lindsay, you know, you and I have a debated about things. And I've seen you pretty spitting mad over Ukraine, but you don't seem as mad as you were about this. Then you've been mad about Ukraine. I don't understand why people aren't lighting their hair on fire. I don't understand why people are not in the streets. This isn't like, oh, well, you know, let's just see what's in the warrant. I mean, they've been doing this. This is the third election. This is a third election. We know they doctor evidence. We know they plant evidence. We know they hide evidence. We know they lie. We know they leak. I mean, this is not anything new. This has been, this has been years they've been doing this. We can't just say, oh, you know, we're waiting for the guy to come out and give a statement about what is predicated. I mean, what? These people are out of control, senator. This country is at like, we're on the edge of a cliff, man. I'm telling you, this country is at the edge of a cliff here. Lindsey Graham doesn't agree with that. He's just kind of like, his head is like, oh yeah, okay, okay. For him, it's all about the regime. It's not about the country, no, but if Vladimir Putin invades Ukraine, oh man. It's all in.
Kurt Schlichter's Completely Unfiltered Take on the DOJ and the FBI
"Kurt schlichter is here to help us unpack the raid on Mar-a-Lago Kurt. Here's what I'm trying to understand, why do you believe Merrick Garland has remained silent on the raid? Is there some Discord within DoJ why the silence from the attorney general? Well, it's all part of the plan, Charlie. Look, people keep treating this as if it's some sort of legitimate activity. And you have these soft Frito con senators like what we need to wait to see what evidence they have. Hey, dummy. Have you been a sweets since 2016? These guys have spent the last 6 years trying to frame the president. You think suddenly they're on to something? You think now they finally struck painter? Oh, he took a classified document with him in his files. Oh, we got him now because classified material. Next, you can't have that nail the memo went out. It's a crime again. Look, he's not saying anything because the purpose of this is to intimidate conservatives. It's to try and drum up a reaction from conservatives and conservatives have been taking in general the proper approach. They're not young about torches and pitchforks. Instead, they're focusing on cold and relentless fury. And they will take their revenge. The correct way at the ballot box. And then with brutal and ruthless oversight of these petty fascists. So they remain silent or he speaks, it's all irrelevant because it's all a lie.
Kleefisch downplays Trump endorsement on final swing
"Donald Trump reasserts his grip on Republicans in the key swing state of Wisconsin where his candidate for governor Tim Michaels won the primary Michael is a wealthy businessman who owns a construction company beat the former lieutenant governor who was endorsed by Mike Pence and state Republican leaders at his victory party last night He thanked Trump It was a tremendous validation of our meteoric rise in this campaign He knows that we need to have new leadership in Madison Audio courtesy WK OW during her concession speech Rebecca clayfish urged supporters to stay in the fight The fight now is truly against Tony Evers And the liberals who wants to take away our way of life Michael's face is Evers in the general election as much as Trump's influence in the primary was clear some Republicans fear his involvement could hurt GOP candidates in November including the state's Republican senator considered the most vulnerable up for reelection I'm Julie Walker
Tim Michaels Wins Wisconsin Republican Nomination for Governor
"Got renominated last night. You got renominated last night. Any upsets anything interesting happened in Wisconsin elections last night? Well, I mean, the governor primary was coming down to the wire. It was close to Michael's prevailed over Rebecca, clayfish, Rebecca, clay fish, was the former lieutenant governor, endorsed by former governor Scott walker, Tim Michaels is a businessman who was endorsed by former president Trump. And so that was a very hard fought primary to Michael's prevailed and so now we have the task of uniting the party behind Tim Michael's in order to oust governor Evers, who has been a terrible governor and he was vetoed any number of common sense conservative legislation. So that was really the race everybody was watching. You know, there were a lieutenant governor's race where a state senator from my district, who I know well prevailed, but other than that, it was mostly the governor's primary that people were focused on.
More Reactions To The FBI's Raid of Mar-A-Lago
"Here's The Wall Street Journal editor. Well, first let me play a little audio because there's a lot of great audio on this yesterday. Let's start with senator Rick Scott on Fox business with degan McDowell, cut number 8. Well, first of all, it makes you mad. I mean, this is unprecedented. A former president potential opponent to Biden in 24 is house gets rated. We know the Biden administration targets their opponents. Merrick Garland's targets, democratic opponents. This is well, here's what needs to happen today. Separately, mayor Garland, Christopher wray, Joe Biden need to do press conference, take all questions, explain why they're doing what they're doing, what each of them knew when this should scare every American until we get answers. This should be, you should have unbelievable concern. I got more phone calls. Let's go over to Ted Cruz. Cut number 13. That's exactly right. What we've got to do is win control of the House and Senate so that we have the authority to engage in oversight. It was interesting that the director of the FBI was there for one round of questions. At the end of the round of questions, we were supposed to have a second round. He said, no, I got a plane to catch. I'm sorry I gotta go. He didn't want another round of questions as chuck grassley observed. Wait a second. You've got your own plane. The FBI has a private jet just for you, so you're playing to catch it. You just don't want to have any more investigation. We need serious oversight. We need accountability. The people who have been political and partisan need to be fired. And if they broke the law right, let's hear Marco Rubio say the same thing. Cut number ten. You know, an FBI raid looking for supposed classified documents is a ridiculous alibi. Unlike anyone else in the federal government, no president can be guilty of illegally handling classified information because a president has complete and final authority to decide whether something is classified or not.

Everything You Need to Know About the FBI Raid of Mar-A-Lago
"24 hour period we saw some of the most significant expansions of federal power ever. This is more significant than the creation of the Department of Homeland Security in 24 hours you saw to seemingly disconnected data points that are trying to achieve the exact same thing. You saw 87,000 new IRS agents approved by the U.S. Senate and you saw an armed raid of a former president and his home. What exactly happened yesterday? Well, Mar-a-Lago, for those of you that have never been there, it's a phenomenal spectacular property. I've had the blessing to be able to visit there a couple of times is the residents, not a property, is the residents of Donald Trump. It is his home. A hundred FBI agents showed up with weapons and a warrant that was signed by a judge we're still learning more about the judge because there's some information circulating about the judge saying that he might be connected to Jeffrey Epstein. We're going to get that confirmed. Shows up to Mar-a-Lago while he is in New York City. And walks out with 15 boxes, opens the safe, splinters the safe for what? The only action that could possibly justify that is if Donald Trump had an act of dirty bomb in the living room of Mar-a-Lago with an impending intent to try to blow up Miami. Or if Donald Trump was sex trafficking children via the Lolita express to some unknown island in the Caribbean. The idea of going in with armed federal agents, they knew exactly what they were doing though. This for weeks they were methodically planning this. Christopher wray knew about this raid when he was testifying smugly in front of the U.S. Senate. We even said last week on the program how smug and arrogant Christopher wray is, as he is in front of all the senators because he said, oh, you have no idea. Your boy's about to get rated next week. This was all planned.
What We Know so Far About the Trump Raid
"Your reaction to what we've learned thus far about the raid on Mar-a-Lago. Well, I don't think we know enough for me to have a real competent reaction. I mean, there are the political implications, but even the political implications so far are in reaction to something that we don't know enough about. And so on the one hand, we could in theory find out this was completely justified and makes a lot of sense despite how unusual it is. Or we could find out it doesn't. But I would predict that no matter what we find out, everybody's going to revert to their corner and conclude that they either like what they hear or don't believe what they hear. And I would say, as a matter of the midterm election, again with the going to win the House majority, because it's very least the Democrats are defending a 5 seat majority that's so thin, it's impossible to defend and even though the Senate races have looked tougher for Republicans in the summer insane recently, we've seen this movie before, at least in the 21st century with wave elections where it starts out okay for the party in The White House. Then it looks really, really bad for a long time. Then it looks like weight, maybe it's not so bad. And then it all goes the way it looked like it was going to go, especially when you look at the states where Republicans are on offense or even where they're playing defense. So we need to know more before I can tell you, okay, this is the potential different impact, but I don't think we know enough.
Robert Byrd Vs. Joe Manchin
"Now, let me ask you senator in terms of Robert bird versus Joe Manchin. If Robert Byrd had passed the bill that just passed, the 87 IRS agents would be taken up offices in West Virginia. Is there anything like that in this bird in this bill? Not that I know of and, you know, listen, we've all been on, I've been on our show crazy Joe for keeping the filibuster into that. Let's now work on a bipartisan infrastructure Bill. And I thought it made sense. I worked on the chips act. It was probably too expensive, but it still makes sense, trying to develop chips that we need for our military and domestic consumption in America, not relying on China and other places. So it's not like I can't work with a guy. Here's what happened. This is the same Joe Manchin who voted with the Democrat and march of 2021. Just imagine every Republican voted no. What does that tell you, Susan Collins? Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, all of us saw this bill as being hurtful to the economy and Joe Manchin was wrong in 2021. He's wrong now. And I think he's done a lot of damage to the people in West Virginia. That's at least what the goal will say.
The Gop's Midterm Campaign Theme
"Republicans coordinate their messaging into November? Well, absolutely, you know, sometimes songs write themselves. This right itself, okay? You got to remember the first thing I did at the news conference. Was remind you that these are the same people that told you in March of 2021. The American rescue plan would double the economy. Well, in March 2021, inflation was 2.6%. It's 9% now. What happened between March and now? The American rescue plan became the American recession plan. It flooded the zone with new spending and new taxes. If hurt economic growth, this effort to declare war on American fossil fuels was part of the American rescue plan. So the people who promised you the American rescue plan would help you. Don't know what they're talking about. The
The Gas Tax in the Inflation Reduction Act Leads to Higher Gas Prices
"Length. But let's stay focused on a moment on the so called inflation reduction act, which is the triple lie. It's got nothing to do with inflation. It does not reduce any spending. And it's not an act that's a retreat by Joe Manchin. At the end of the day, how do you assess what happened, senator Graham? Well, I think for the American public, it's going to make every problem worse. How many people think we need a new gas tax? Well, if you think that you're probably shouldn't be driving to begin with, because you're dangerous. The bottom line is there's a new gas tax issue, a 16.4 cents per barrel. New tax on all imported oil and domestic crude refined and an American refinery, which makes our refineries less competitive. So gas tax is going to go up. Vinny's become dimes and diamonds will come dollars. The 15% minimum minimum tax or destroy investment.

Hey there folks, just a couple of minutes left talking to senator Mike Lee of Utah, the new book is called saving 9, the fight against the left audacious plan to pack the Supreme Court and destroy American liberty. Senator Lee, do you think most Americans understood what they were getting involved in when they allowed Joe Biden to become the president, ostensibly, I don't think most Americans are a we're aware, although I think maybe they are now many of them of the radical nature of the fundamentally anti American nature of the left. And how folks like Biden who would have been a centrist some years ago, he's really given himself over to the darkest forces on the left the most radical forces doesn't seem to have the ability on any level to stand up against it or to articulate any vision. Do you think people are waking up? I mean, I'm just kind of wondering from your point of view what you see happening. I don't think I've ever seen more buyers remorse than I have among Biden voters. I think a lot of people anticipated quite incorrectly that he would govern somehow from the middle as a moderate and they voted for someone who they regarded as a nice neighborly gentleman. Who they could imagine having launched with and enjoying it. I don't think they had any idea of the extent to which he had bought off on the radical left's policies that he would be content. And in fact, bent on increasing prices, especially for fuel. I don't think they realized the extent to which he would cause problems in the extent to which he would aggressively pursue angles that are destructive. In fact, just listen to how he handled that debate. The first presidential debate in the fall of 2020 when he was asked, would you pack the Supreme Court and he said, well, I can't say yes, because if I do people will attack me. That shows a degree of malice aforethought. That shows that he was thinking about it. He wanted to do it. He just didn't want to admit it. But he kind of admitted it, not all of us realize that's what he was doing. So yeah, I think there's a ton of buyers remorse out there with very good reason. Well, I don't know if you've seen 2000 mules yet, but I mean, I think these are the most basic things that everyone in America ought to be concerned, whether it's even possible that corrupt individuals would try to steal an American election, not from Donald Trump from the American people. It starts there. In other words, if you're dealing with people who want to win at all costs, who don't have any virtue, any principles, all they want to do is win. You have to recognize that in dealing with them. And when you're talking about packing the Supreme Court, it's just one version of the same thing. There are people who simply don't want to let the American people govern themselves. They don't like the decisions the American people have done. And whatever they need to do, some of it is really horrifying and what you talk about in the book saving 9 is a classic example. They are undoing America and folks like you are sounding the alarm. I know we've just got a few minutes left. What else do you say in the book saving 9 that we should touch on today? Well, I talk a little bit about the fact that over time you've seen the Supreme Court demonstrate that it's not infallible. It's made plenty of mistakes. We've seen liberal judicial activism. Roe versus wade is a great example of that. And roe versus wade was very wrong. He also had conservative judicial activism. In chapter three of saving 9, I talk about a case called lochner versus New York, in which 5 conservative justices on the Supreme Court in 1905 invalidated a New York State law imposing minimum wage maximum hour provisions into laws governing employment contracts with bakery employees. They struck that down. That was a good example of conservative activism. They sort of made up a constitutional principle that wasn't really there. And that caused other problems in the court. And by the way, when roe versus wade came along, they were using the same legal doctrine, even though lochner itself had been undone. They used a similar doctrine called substantive due process, which I explained in the book. But the point is this saving 9 is full of lessons that every American should know about, but no Americans, as sexually, are taught in school, not an elementary school or junior high or high school, not in college, not even in most law schools. But they're in there. They're objective facts. And the American people can learn more about our constitution and how we can protect that system. How we can oppose and win in this battle to pack the Supreme Court. So I encourage all of your all of your readers who want to learn more about this country, how it's government works, and how we can save our constitution. They should read saving nights. Senator Mike Lee, I.
"senator " Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"The court was old and out of touch. It started getting legislative momentum. Remember that FDR had very substantial majorities in both houses of Congress. And as it was gaining momentum, the Supreme Court started considering another case. Another challenge to another new deal program, legislation creating the national labor relations board. And on April 12th, 1937, the Supreme Court decided a case called NLRB versus Jones and laughlin steel company. In that case, one justice, justice Owen Roberts, switched his vote at the last minute, switched his vote and joined the liberals on the court to create a new majority for a new constitutional doctrine. They effectively amended the constitution without following the constitutional amendment process and had this been a constitutional amendment. It would have been one of the 5 most significant amendments ever. Because it radically transformed the power of the federal government. Overnight, in one fell swoop, it went from being a government with narrow power to broad power. Because they just reinterpreted the commerce clause to mean that Congress and the federal government generally could regulate any activity that affects interstate commerce. From that moment forward, Congress could pass legislation on basically any topic they wanted, as long as they dotted the I's and crossed the T's. And so at that point, the court packing plan was unnecessary. It failed legislatively in part because it succeeded politically within the court. It scared the justices enough that they switched their votes. Owen Roberts flipped the majority and FDR got what he wanted. So the last thing lesson here, Eric, is that, as I explained in saving 9, court packing is dangerous, precisely because it's designed to threaten intimidate harass and denigrate the Supreme Court. And it can have the potential to spark the Supreme Court to decide cases differently in deference to the president. Obviously, it is fundamentally against this idea we call America. It is frightening. I'm glad that you senator Mike Lee have written a book. It's called saving 9, we'll be right back with senator Mike Lee. He just do what it pleased. Tell me Eric, why is relief factor so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. And that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you. It works for me. It has for about 70% of the half a million people who've tried it and have ordered more, go to relief factor dot com or call 800 for relief to find out about this offer, feel the difference. In case you haven't been paying attention, the Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it. Oil prices have skyrocketed and when oil prices go up, the cost of transportation and shipping spikes leading the prices of goods to rise. And when we're already seeing record inflation, that's the last thing we need. Our economy is in trouble and you need to take steps to protect yourself.

Thank you very much, Eric. Good to be with you. Most of us have heard a lot of crazy things among them, the idea that the left wants to pack the Supreme Court and really destroy America. Let's cut to the chase. They want to destroy America by packing the Supreme Court. It's sometimes when we.

"And they're misinformed, threats, they're horrible, but the problem is this is to the Victor go the spoils are worse yet. The victors would write the history books. They're the ones who are going to say, oh yeah, you know, that industry didn't fight back, so we were able to clobber and limit the sales of natural products, limit the sales of dietary supplements. I hope people recognize and I'm not a sky is falling kind of guy. But these are some severe threats that are out there right now. Right now, the rate at which misinformation travels is so fast that if we all believe in the industry like the way we do, and again, the systems we have, it really takes 30 seconds, you're putting your zip code, their form letters there, and you tell your state reps, your federal reps that, hey, you oppose this. And the people we went voices heard. I mean, that's how we got to Shay, right? I mean, we started this conversation with that, Steve, as we got a gave us the ability to really balance consumer choice and consumer protection. And kept our promise with consumers. This is the same situation. I think it's just a different environment. I think so much of it too. I think people have fatigue coming out of COVID quite frankly. I think it's been so tough on businesses, especially brick and mortar retail over the past two years that I think there are some fatigue and we can appreciate that. We did a lot to keep businesses open. This is one where we got to get up for the fight again, so to speak. You had mentioned in this discussion that the initial bill that was brought up by senator Durbin didn't get any co signers. And now is looking to be packaged in another bill. How does that bill move forward in such a way? What are the steps in terms of where it is now? And the fact that it has this inserted in it, what's the likelihood that it can be pulled out of it? And if not, then where does the next intersection come from that consumers can have influence? Steve, this is a great question. We're going to get a little deep politically, but okay, so you have both the House and the Senate put there, so the house actually is marking up their proposal today. Luckily for us, the House version has nothing on supplements in it, which great. That's how it should be for the past 5 user fee authorizations. There's nothing on supplements in it. So let's get to that tradition. The Senate discussions are asked and that's not the final version. That's not what they're going to bring to the floor for a vote and for changes. So this is the first bite of the Apple. So this is a must pass Bill, right?.

"Working every day to remember the forgotten. The sean hannity show twenty five till the top of the hour. We'll get to your calls in a second eight hundred nine. Four one sean. Let me play you know with all the ever changing rules and mixed messaging the experts wrong. They're here there there. Everywhere you know everybody forgets so conservatives are gonna make people die. I supported operation warp speed from day. One in january twenty twenty. I was saying scientists medical research in america probably gonna save the world with therapeutics and ultimately vaccine and lo and behold we got it done and donald trump did it by by creating a system with warp speed where these pharmaceutical companies were not going to risk losing a fortune. If they didn't get the therapeutics the vaccine in record time which they ended up doing because they had the financial strength and support of the government to do that at the time All the vaccine hesitancy. Let's let's for example. Let's listen to ms dnc. Listen to their hesitancy. What they were saying in large part because i just hate donald trump since the pandemic began. We've heard a lot of promises about vaccines the race. To approve proven effective vaccine has taken a toll on public trust especially in the middle of a heated presidential election. Only twenty seven percent of americans say they would definitely get an approved. Corona virus vaccine trust vaccine among the american public is at an all time low and continuing to be mixed messages from the administration and from their own agencies strange announcement from the trump administration that they want states to have vaccine distribution centers. Ready to go by november. I two days before the election even though no vaccines are yet available laurie. Garrett says quote. I have no confidence that a safe effective vaccine. We'll be ready for use by halloween wars. I could no longer recommend that anyone retained faith. In any public health. Pronouncements issued by government agencies officials insist no corners are being cut. The timetable is simply too short for full safety else's of any vaccine and it seems like it's sort of cause for alarm that there's no standard promulgated by the fda or by anybody for comparing the relative effectiveness and safety of the various vaccines that are all being export operation. Warp speed is about delivering a vaccine faster than we have ever done it before the canopy down quickly and safely well the administration may want a vaccine for political reasons yesterday and frankly all of us would love a vaccine as soon as possible. Scientists are sounding the alarm that we must resist the urge to rush out a product. We aren't sure about because the vaccine safer. Is it not safe. There's a communist win is it coming. Donald trump has politicized the treatment and vaccine process from the very beginning. It's pretty unbelievable. Now listen to democrats. They were skeptical about taking the coroner's vaccine. I don't trust trump. it's trump accede. It'll call it the trump vaccine anymore as you know. President trump has promised a corona virus vaccine by the end of the year. Or maybe sooner. Would you trust that vaccine. No i would not trust his word. I would trust the word of public health experts and scientists but not donald trump first of all. I don't trust the president on vaccines. I think it's going to be a very skeptical. American public about taking the vaccine and it should be. He will push anything to get reelected. Don't fall for. And by the way i will take the vaccine after i would be hesitant to receive the vaccine if it were approved by the end of the year. I'm gonna yes. I would be hesitant. Mean if doctors and scientists like dr algae are taking that fact seen of course i will take the vaccine but we also know that we can't trust the president and take his word. I trust flaxseeds. I trust scientists. But i don't trust donald trump moment. The american people can't either. I believe all across the country. You're going to need someone other than this. Fda and this cdc saying it safe so predictable eight hundred nine four. One sean is on number. You wanna be a part of the program. Cindy is an iowa. Cindy glad you called. Thanks for being with us. Hi there I just have a couple of ahern First of all just about every day. Get a chance to hear part of what you're what you're talking about. And you keep talking about delaware. And they have stricter stricter stricter rules and laws and you know what it is because they always go democrat. If they didn't go democrat they would be. They would be the the left of of georgia and texas. So that's just something that I know you know that I just wanted to point it out. And the second thing i've been wondering about is where's kamala harris her little visit to the hospital on sunday and nothing has been said. There's no routine no routine physical or checkup on a sunday at a government hospital so I'm curious i. I think that if she were cova positive and she supposedly vaccinated. That would be a huge. Pr problem for the last. And i'd really like to know where she is and how she's doing. I'd never believe for a second that this was a scheduled medical checkup on a sunday. At walter reed. This is right. After she had met with the texas lawmakers that blew up in their private jet while they themselves were filibustering to ask democrats to end the filibuster so i i haven't really followed her schedule. Let me go. Look into that. And see if i can't get the answer for sure but i i don't recall seeing her after that and you know they're they're this very week. I mean when jen psaki and the biden administration of an asked how many people at the white house have contracted covert after everybody. There's been vaccinated. They don't wanna mention it again. You have one hundred. And fifty million americans fully vaccinated. And then you have one hundred and fifty thousand breakthrough cases that we at least know about. There's probably a lot more where people fully vaccinated still contract corona virus that the those are the cdc numbers and the you know we knew the efficacy was never one hundred percent to begin with now. We're seeing that maybe with the variance that these vaccines are less effective than the original corona virus. Which wouldn't scientifically shocked me or be surprising to me But it's the mix messaging that they keep giving us no massive. I then one mask then to mask. Then it's if you're vaccinated no mass but then maybe maybe you'll have masks indefinitely then you if you get vaccinated you're never going to have to worry about wearing a mask now you're back to being vaccinated wearing a mask and the confusion and the lack of trust is coming right out of the biden administration starting with joe and joe biden themselves Anyway i appreciate the call. Thank you cindy. Eight hundred nine four one. Sean is on number. If you wanna be a part of the program. He don't wanna play this. See this these comments chip roy. He wasn't he. He was very passionate on the house floor today. We have a crisis at our border or playing footsie with mask mandates. In the people's house this sham of an institution is doing nothing for the american people. Here's what he said declaration tonight. At city council that no illegal immigrants can be released in the city of you. Balloting per the cdc guidelines countries on their list without a negative cova test and we have had our health authority right orders that give us the authority to have them.

"All right as we continue with our friend herschel walker. Let's talk about herschel. Walker a potential united states. Senator told me that you're giving it serious consideration. Where are you in this process. And and what do you think will be the determining factor for you to get into this crazy. I i know you've been in the octagon so you know what a battle is and your warrior your whole career. What would it take for herschel walker to jump in that race. Well you know i. It just takes that my family you know. They're they're They're putting together as well. Because it's not just about me. And that's why i keep telling people people to style like tomorrow decide right here. That's the guy. I got decide at my own time because i said this is bigger than just plan football. This is bigger than plan Getting into the octagon. This is the united states senate seat that can change the world know it can change georgia. It can change a lot of things so it's not something i got. I need to take lightly. I need to take it very very seriously. And that's what i've been doing and people may not understand that. But they don't understand herschel walker guys if you don't understand her to walk it has nothing you can do to me. They're got to deter me from my mission and my mission his and make the right decision for the state of georgia. Make the right decision for this. United states of america. Because i love this country. I love the state of georgia. I love this country stands for. we're country law and order wisconsin. They have borders. And i'm like that's what i that's what i know. And then you know. I love our military base every three weeks. I love the united states military right now. I think what we're doing. This country is not right to them. Let me ask you this. Because i think this is determinative in in so many different ways. If you if you've heard what stacey. Abrams and raphael warnock in jim. I'm sorry joe biden has said you know jim. Crow two point zero. Meanwhile the state of delaware has the most restrictive voting laws in the country compared to georgia. Which has some of the most accessible how they hurt that state with that narrative. Well they just continue to use that word jim crow. You know like i say. I'll say an element. You mentioned jim crow racism. Ah you're racist nobody can say anything. Let's get away from that. But i think people have to be on as i said. I love the lord. Jesus i love my god but you gotta speak the truth. The truth is we have a problem going on with something. That's going on country. Our leaders don't seem to want to respect what the constitution is united states that stands for and one of the things i was looking at. I say the ultimate office is you're supposed to defend the constitution. Foreign and domestic. That's the tate. Well i hear that. They want to change the constitution but the constitution is bigger than that. No part of whether you're republican or democrat should have the right to change the constitution. I wanted to explore this further with you. I like the idea that you're doing it your way and i know you that if you get in. I know you well enough and a long enough. That if you're in you're in to win that. I do know herschel walker. We love having you back. Your dear friend. Think the world you would love to see. Iran would support your candidacy in a heartbeat.

Few minutes left with colonel. Doug mastery state senator from the great state of pennsylvania. Both welcome back. You're talking to the state senator from the great commonwealth vania doug Doug you realize there's gonna be tremendous opposition. They will do anything and say anything to prevent from happening.

What are the options three weeks. A subpoenas go forth. My my committee will meet in the middle of summer. I guess one advantage of being full-time legislative body. I can call my committee anytime the counter they can get quorum. Subpoenas go out. The republican county is will will comply work at a time line with them.

We'll see your county which is about sixty forty republican county my own district. I'm looking at your county. And then after that philadelphia until it off the we will come in because i have the constitutional authority it's been held up by state supreme court in numerous cases. I the cases here at recite them. You it's really irrelevant. But we have the rule of law. This nation is about laws and order and the constitution. And so we're going to move forth.

The truth will come out and people i. i hope i'm wrong but erica. I'm i'm just a resolve that we're gonna find a lot of bad things since they're going working so hard in spreading so many lies to try to keep this from happening. It's just you know this is more exciting than any movie. This is reality. The whole country is looking at pennsylvania the whole country's looking at philadelphia the cradle of liberty. The place where it all happened. It's an amazing thing. I mean it's an amazing thing that benjamin franklin walked out of the constitutional convention and was asked by. Mrs powell was over her. That's the only reason we know about it. It was overheard. What are you giving us a monarchy republic a republic. Madam if you can keep it we are now and you sir are leading the charge to keep the republic. That's all this is. This is free. American citizens doing their duty working with the laws that are set up to keep us from tyranny. It's just an amazing. It's an amazing thing. I want people to appreciate the import of this because it's unprecedented. As far as i can tell i can. I just can't think of anything begins to compare to this i. I do hope a lot of people will be praying for you. Doug because god has delivered you into the center of this maelstrom for such a time as this to quote one of my favorite books. I'm you also were the one that called for the special session or the hearings rather in gettysburg back in was that november december twenty fifth. I i remember the time you struggling because a lot of people even in your own party were not being helpful We've just got less than a minute left. But why do you think people who call themselves. Republicans are willing to go along with this kind of corruption is kind of They don't seem to understand. What america's about you i see malays icy status quo. Don't rock the boat too. Hey just a steady easy on but you know what do you do. I never wanted to do this. I retired from the army. I was going to ride off the sunset lake so many cardinals deal with a sweet job. You know making lots of money and travel and i was complaining about after thirty years of sacrifice. The country was in bad shape and his twenty three year. Old kid looked at me and said colonel. Do something about it so this is me trying to do something about it here. So i'm asking americans. Please reach out to your. Legislators will reach out to your state senators and pennsylvania. The reps don't matter this is the state senate issue and asked them to get on board democrat or republican. We need to get on board is he. Got nothing to hide. Crack the books open. Let's get to the bottom of. This is the second american revolution at the precipice either. We bowed to tyranny Or we win our freedom again. I really do think this is the culmination of the fulfillment of lincoln's prophetic words at gettysburg. A new birth of freedom. It's kind of a simple choice. Doug muster yano. We thank god for you. We'll talk to you again soon. Thank you please. Keep praying for me i.

"To colonel. Doug master state senator doug monster yano come on man. We've got to figure this out colonel or states today. You're you'll be the state senator. So what do you think is going to happen philadelphia. Look there have been people. There's got him. Chris read a prophetic voice. He was on the said roth program. He said that he had a vision. Now i know for a lot of people. This is really loopy. And it's sort of neither here nor there ultimately but he said a few days. I think was november eleventh. That everybody's going to be looking at pennsylvania in philadelphia in the end. The whole nation is going to be looking there and i thought think of how procreate that is this is the very place service where the declaration of independence was written ratified the constitution. It doesn't get historic and yet today. Philadelphia is probably one of the most corrupt democratic strongholds. They've been getting away with this nonsense. So think this is going to play out State senator doug master you so well i first off. I want us to reflect back in sixteen. Eighty two william penn landed near warwick what we call philadelphia today and he spoke prophetically that this would be the seat of a nation. The place where we would do what is just and true and just fifty eight years after his death. That prophecy was fulfilled in seventeen. Seventy six with a light. Liberties was lit right in philadelphia. The heart birthplace in the heart and soul of our nation of philadelphia. And then of course a few years after that seventeen eighty seven the constitution was ratified after much debate and discussion. And we remember what. Mrs powell said the benjamin franklin leaving constitution hall. Well mr franklin what do we have in. It's in your book. You know a monarchy or republic and he said a republic if you can keep it and so we've been in a mode of trying to keep this republican we've had ups and downs and then of course. The biggest crisis was probably on a per second and third of july one hundred fifty eight years ago. Eighteen sixty three in gettysburg and the bloodiest place in north america where a new birth of freedom was secured an even years later in nine eleven two thousand one flight ninety three captured by terrorists and the christians and others on board. That plane got together. Todd beamer called talk to to get through to his wife but sock to a lady on the phone prayed the lord's prayer and he said let's roll so this is another moment in our time where it's time for us to roy. I never imagined a dream that i would be caught up in the middle this this storm here and so we have the hearing the so much controversy we hold hearings in the house and senate we issue report to governor vetoes. A reform packing is still nothing gets done in. So i i move forward with his very good faith approach exercise my constitutional powers to do forensic investigation scientific. I want everyone to participate in. You know either. It's right or wrong. No interpretation and i get such such a bellicose responses from the governor and the attorney general and you just kind of wonder what exactly are you afraid of. Are you hiding something. If i was governor of the state here if i disagreed with mastery and mastering agree with you but i got nothing to hide. The irony is is my governor campaign the most transparent governor pennsylvania history. He's a lease opposite with politicians. They say one thing. The campaign trail is gonna be the opposite. So i'm moving forward and then low and behold wolf begs president biden to come. Are you returning to the scene of a crime or something. I don't know what this is really this complete opposite of what you're doing. You're trying to suppress people's votes by not let us get to the bottom of what happened. I just want the truth and people to stay here. Demand the truth area to get it by god. Well think. think of this. If you are playing fast and loose and there's a level of corruption that's been going on for decades. The assumption is. It'll just keep going on. I've talked to people. Who are you know deep into the election. Stuff every four years and they say if you don't win in pennsylvania by five percent you lose in other words. They know that baked in is five percent of corruption. There's just no way around it and so what happens if you overplay your hand. And then suddenly they say well what's going on over there. This is what happened in watergate. Right remember they take the door. Open the burglars and somebody kind of a nightwatchman says what's this. Oh it's a door that's open and it just unravels on ravel's biggest scandal ever. That's what happened here. In other words you overplay your hand and people go You don't want maybe it's about time that we actually looked into what happens in a place like philadelphia. Why don't we do that. Their worst nightmare their worst nightmare that somebody would say. Let's open the books. Let's see what we have. Let's bring flashlight out. Let's let's look into that snake pit so they're scared to death. I wanna say it again. They're scared to death. People are gonna go to jail if there's any malfeasance here this is like jail time. These people are very scared. Who knows how involved governor wolf is in this. Let's just go back for a second to maricopa. What what is where are things in arizona now and how do you see if this is to begin to unravel is. Is that part of what's happening. Where are they now. I've never clear on where we are. The they've completed the recount and our account exceeded required. They had actually three is on each ballot. And apparently there's a big deficit to a big delta deficit between actual number of votes that were on hand as as as opposed to number of votes. That were reported that significant and apparently on the software side. They really been mum about that. But apparently the software is compromised Some routers may have been online so when this report comes out in a couple of weeks here. I think it's going to be pretty. Earth shattering and if we had even have a fraction of what comes out of arizona pennsylvania. It's a show changer. So most americans are not tuned into this. They're going about their lives thinking. Well we're under the biden diktat administration and they're not aware that a threat is being pulled. It's kinda like you get a pair tweezers and you see. Just the half of thread and you're trying to pull it and people saying you know those tweezers are illegal. You need to come with me. sir. this is just bad news and so it's not being covered much. That's why i wanted to talk to you on this program. This potentially leads to something that is going to be a gigantic crisis in the months ahead. So what is the time. Line on what you're trying to bring about in pennsylvania so they the three counties in question to republican democrat.

Senator is able to do something against insane opposition because of our constitution and our laws to bring clarity to one of the most important things you can have in a republic an election of a president and so many others so doug. It's just. It's an astonishing moment in history to me that you someone i think of as a friend as a state senator are able to use the mechanisms of this great government that we've had for almost two hundred fifty years to bring something about that. It's not just bearing on the future of america but the future of the world. I mean that is again not hyperbole. It's an astonishing moment.

People said the system works in other words. Something goes wrong. there's corruption we have a way of dealing with it of cleansing. It and then moving on i remember them. You know the morning gerry. ford took office You know our our long national nightmare is over. That was a different kind of nightmare Were now in a nightmare. Many many times more horrifying than that one but the system is working. It's an astonishing thing. Folks doug maestro needs your prayers if you believe in the god of the bible please..

"S. senator and given all the things that we've talked about I asked her about how well the candidates have been doing in their out reach to the diverse communities in her state here's what I know we have a third of the population of Latinos we have the fastest growing ATI copulation in the country very strong vibrant African American population along with a native American populations and they're turning out there paying attention but you have to be talking to them now you can't come a last minute amounts before final action say oh I want your vote I want to talk to you you've got to be engaged in those communities now and I don't care what community you live in it is about economic security for the family good jobs education for their kids access to healthcare Mr Miller no matter what community you're talking do you feel that there has been enough of an effort among Democrats to register and energize and get these voters out because that is one of our ongoing criticisms I'll just have to say if the party apparatus as it were so are you seeing that effort to get people you know registered organized an out well I can see it in the back because that's literally what we have to do so yes I see that organization I see that happen about it now I can't speak for the rest of the country but I definitely know what's happening around we want to talk more about that out risa we've got Karissa Martinez de Castro on the line she is a deputy vice president at the Latino civil rights organization you need us thanks so much for joining us we appreciate it thank here it's great to be with you so let's talk more about this some of the things that we've been sort of touching on so far first of all how significant are the registration outreach efforts on the ground in the matter what are you saying there well one of the things we now right every time the election cycle rolls around there's these all these questions about whether nineteen as voter not in what we do now is that once registered Latinos in presidential elections vote at level very close to other groups eighty two eighty three percent of Latinos who are registered to vote the problem is and you were talking about this a little bit there's just not a lot of investment in actually closing registration gaps in our country to make sure that eligible Americans I register to vote and can I can I get you to take a pull up for brief pause here just a brief pause here we're coming right back to you we just need to take a brief pause to say you're listening to live special coverage of the Nevada democratic caucuses from NPR news from KQED news I'm Michelle Wiley well the Nevada caucuses are under way voters here in California have a few more early voting options today for our upcoming primary kick you stick me camp high reports several more early voting centers are now open and Santa Clara at San Matteo and napa counties these places and twelve other counties across the state adopted the voters choice act an optional law passed in twenty sixteen that aims to make it easier for residents to vote one big difference you can vote in person at any vote center in your county residents who live in counties out follow this law can also drop off mail in ballots register to vote or update voter registration at these voting centers even more early voting locations are expected to open up in these fifteen counties next Saturday I'm Tiffany can hi KQED news speaking of elections there's a proposition on the November ballot that's raising the question how can our property tax system be more fair to all Californians that's a question KQDS housing team is asking online in an attempt to create conversation that might lead to some solutions here to explain if Kiki senior editor of housing Erika Aguilar and Erica at this question is being raised because in November at they'll be an initiative to revamp prop thirteen yeah yeah yeah that's right prop thirteen you know is this voter initiative that passed in nineteen seventy eight and it's tight property tax rates to the purchase of the home you know at the time so ultimately what that does is cap revenues for cities local governments and schools but now there's this measure on the November ballot that will ask corporations and businesses to pay property taxes based on the current value of their property but there's you know still a lot of debate over how prop thirteen in general can be changed or more for share and that's the approach that we're taking with this project is to hear what people think about that supposed to go online and tell you what they think would be a fair property tax system but often comment sections just turn into people arguing yeah and you're hoping that this computing system using will help people come to a consensus yeah I hope so what I hope to hear is different ideas about what we can do to make prop thirteen maybe more fair to get past the polarizing debate I think we can all agree that seniors should be put out of their homes if they can't afford to live there because property taxes are just too high right we all can agree that seniors should not be living on the street but how we get there is so different you know the way this computing system works is will look for her likely words were words are matching up for ideas starting to align because what we're looking for is consensus where do we align on such a polarizing debate this is that we can come together and start having a conversation about what we agree on more than what we don't agree on when you expect to see the results of that we're gonna close the poll around March ninth so get your ideas and fast that was Eric Aguilar KQED senior editor of housing will tweet.

"Or cross for prescription drugs. Get on the list, they need help with those costs. And and if their employer is not going to give them a pay raise. We ought to try to give them tax now. I know a lot of people don't like doing that. They don't like pull it out the tax Bill again and all that I get it. But I think we need to help need to focus on what middle class families have to obviously there's a lot of a lot of work. We can do a bipartisan way on healthcare, and I said by partisan, and I meant it. I think people there's despite our disagreements on on some of the repeal debates. I think there's a lot we can do together to get the cost of healthcare down to deal with these individual problems in the system instead of fighting about healthcare, we should be wanting to expand it and bring costs down. So it's just a short list. That's pretty it's pretty impressive list. I think it's why list that most people would actually agree with. I know you have to jump Senator Casey. But I need to ask you one critically important question. Did you go to the farm show yet this year? Hey, do they went Saturday. I've been doing this out public record. And this is gonna hurt my political career buying and say I to milkshakes eleven fifteen in the morning. Did you did you have the chocolate in vanilla mix? I had of own of the second one. I had was the MEK. Did you have an Amish down to wash it down? No this. This is the first year that I because I was I was going from one stop to the other. I never and never got a chance to stop for donuts. I'm I'm shy. It's I have to figure out a way to get one is three or twenty Senator Bob, Casey. Thank you so much for joining mainstream meets about way. I hope we get to do some nerdy historic tours. Tune. It's always a pleasure to have you. Join the show look forward to the next time. Senator Casey Bank. You so much Selena look forward to thanks. Bye. Bye. I am so excited about my next guest. It is Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin Senator Johnson. He just won reelection in two thousand and sixteen. He first one in two thousand and ten and Senator Johnson. Thank you so much for joining me on main street meets the beltway. William how you doing? I'm doing awesome. So the first thing you want to talk to talk to you about two things today. One of them being a rebuilding the conservative movement. Although I don't think the conservative movement is is dead and Wisconsin, not by longshot. You you still had a great year in Wisconsin. The Blue Wave that everyone was predicting didn't exactly sweep over the state that you did have some problems. But the first thing I want to talk about is the Joseph project, and it's for something that you have been involved with for how long sir it's we're going on three years, but it really came about yet. I've been in manufacturing for thirty years, and it's been a challenge hiring people into manufacturing environment. You tell all. You have to get a four year degree kind of implies that you. You know fact, you work or going to the trades is is sort of a second class status thing. Nothing could be further from the truth. But the bottom line in Wisconsin is a big manufacturing state and since I've become centers. I travel over the state there's not one manufacturing plant that I visited that can hire enough people. And so you realize there's all this opportunity all around the state, and yet we have these pockets of of high unemployment in places like Madison and Milwaukee. So, you know, just talking to my staff making that point, you know, endlessly through a bit of serendipity, a one of my staff members Orlando Owens is part of the greater pries are greater pretty church God in Christ and knows passer drums Smith, they started talking..

"Again to another edition of lift every voice. I cannot tell you. I am so excited about this episode because I am just literally hours have now passed since what was yesterday affectively around eight a little after eight o'clock where we passed a historic piece of legislation a call the first step act, which will get to in a second. But my guest today really is my champion on criminal Justice reform in the United States Senate when I was a very new Senator about five years ago, I came to the Senate to work on criminal Justice reform. It was one of the things that drove me to want to try to a run for the Senate in the first place and the guy who when I landed on the Senate floor and the democratic caucus who kind of took the under his arm would already had the seminal piece of legislation. Do sentencing reform is a man named dick Durbin, the Senator from Illinois. And I have him is my guest today. He led the charge to get this legislation passed, and I just want to thank him in welcome to this podcast. Thank you Senator van. Thanks corey. And it was a team effort. And I I was just happy as heck that you were by my side. It was a great great feeling on the floor last night. I think we made history. Clearly, we did. And I'd like to just go back a while. Because Senator the thing that makes me sad about you is that some of the best beaches. I've ever heard you give there's no press to listen to when you stand up, and you corral or caucus on moral issues. You are really one of the people that is a moral voice in the democratic caucus talking about the people that are often left behind the folks that don't have lobbyists. I've seen you stand up and talk for for immigrants and DACA kids. And then clearly on criminal Justice reform before I even got to the United States Senate. Now, you said something in the press conference, which was I thought it was really moving. Because you just told the truth about how we got into a certain hole, and how you've been on a mission for years and years and years now to get it maybe we can start there. Well, I said at the press conference, and I've said many times, you don't often hear Senator preface speech by saying let me tell you about the worst vote I ever cast. The worst vote ever cast was nine hundred eighty six along come crack cocaine, and we were told be frightened very frightened. It's dirty. It's easy to produce highly addictive. So destructive particularly to pregnant women..
