"Biden sees a political opportunity for himself and for the Democratic Party for himself. He sees a chance to really hone in on an issue that can apiece both black and white communities and insulate himself for sure what was going to be a tough reelection in the Senate and for the Democratic Party. He thinks he can change the reputation that Democrats have Abbas being soft on crime. He sees focusing on this issue as an opportunity to broaden the Democrats National Appeal and actually become the leaders on reforming the criminal justice system. So what does he actually June. Now that he's landed on this issue as his focus so biden works his way onto the most important committee that focuses on this issue the Senate Judiciary Committee and for him to accomplish anything. He knows that he needs to have working. Relationships with Republicans who at this point are in the majority control the Senate and the number one person who could impact Biden's ability ready to pass legislation on the Senate Judiciary Committee is its chairman. Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina's unfortunately the state of our criminal justice. Today favors the criminal. It's Tom Thurman like many conservative. Republicans at the time has that law law and order streak out public safety officers standing as a thin blue line. Sheltering us from criminal anarchy and has always thought that the way to kind of combat lawlessness was through the expansion of the prison system. Today the criminal has four chances in five never to be arrested. A person arrested has five chances out of six not to save time in prison. Only about one criminal. In Fatty ends up behind bars ause. Let's remember Thurmond's approach. Isn't that unique in this era because of that national panic around crime and drugs. It's not just conservatives who have that law and order mindset like Thurman but Democrats are coming around to that idea to and Biden is one of those people uh-huh so while Biden and Thurman had different rhetoric came from a different civil rights background. There is an agreement about the direction the criminal the justice system needs to go he agrees with Thurman that more punitive approach is necessary and so by Thurmond together start working on crime. Hi I'm legislation so I get that for any Democrat to get anything done while. They're in the minority. They need to work with Republicans. But I'm wondering how Biden someone who who thinks of himself and talks about himself as a civil rights champion. Thinks that this partnership with this particular Republican could end up being in good for him. Given strong Thurmond's well-known reputation honorees well Biden has incentive to grow his stature on Capitol Hill that includes foods relationships with Republicans and Mo- specifically requires him to have a working relationship with his partner on this important committee but Biden is also making a lane for himself. He sees this as an opportunity for Democrats to make inroads on a very specific issue. So he's willing to have this relationship with someone whose whose reputation might be controversial because it is helpful for him but let's remember that Strom Thurmond get something out of this also instead had of these issues being seen as completely partisan or only being hounded by someone who has a checkered reputation on race assorted reputation on on race. He now has a new face for the legislation. There is a civil rights lawyer from Delaware someone with good record in black communities who can allow allow the legislation to move in a way. That probably wouldn't have if it was jus- linked with the stench of Strom Thurmond's racial history so for both men man. It's a marriage of convenience and this kind of partnership as also just the way it worked back then. People had relationships because of focus use but also the collegiality the old boys club. -Ness of it. All that's just the way the Senate was so. How do they approach this legislation relation? Once they decide that they are going to work together. Will they go big. They don't just try some incremental change to criminal justice they propose something that is sweeping and bold something that would probably be the most significant overhaul of the criminal justice system in decades in nineteen eighty. Two they propose legislation that would target almost every area of the criminal justice system it would limit access to bail parole for those who have been arrested. It would create much tougher sentences for those who were convicted of crimes and it would just overall expand the government's ability to pursue the war on drugs and the bill passes the Senate by a huge margin ninety five to one and so with this legislation Biden is able to bring the Democrats along with him him. A what has typically been saying as a conservative approach to the criminal justice issue so the Democrats crafts following. Joe Biden's lead are now fully embracing this law and order legislative agenda. Yeah and it shows the power of the relationship nations ship between Joe Biden and Strom Thurmond so from there. The bill heads to President Reagan's desk who campaigns for the oval. Office the on a tough on crime agenda we live in the midst of a crime epidemic took the lives of more than twenty two thousand people last year. Many of you have written to me. How afraid you are to walk? Walk the streets alone at night. We must make America safe again especially for women and elderly who faced so many moments of fear so biden and Thurman Fo- confident confident in the president's signature but Reagan vetos it. He thinks that some of the measures are just too much of a federal government intrusion into the criminal criminal justice space so this is a big defeat well on one hand it is. The president killed their big bill. They're sweeping overhaul of criminal justice but on the other hand it is a real testament to their partnership and what they can achieve by reaching across the aisle and it signals a real path forward forward for Biden. It shows that through building bridges he can then the Senate to as well We'll be right back to kill a mockingbird has not played to a single empty seat reports sixty minutes it is the most successful American play in Broadway. History Rolling Rolling Stone gives it five stars calling unmissable and unforgettable all rise for the miracle that is mockingbird on Broadway it's New York Times critic's Pick Jesse Green calls. It A. Mockingbird looking bird for our moments beautiful GIAC satisfying even exhilarating harp released to kill a mockingbird a new play by Aaron Sorkin a New York Times critic's pick tickets at telecharge DOT com. So after this nineteen ninety-two bill fails but with this partnership very well established how do Biden and Thurman move their agenda forward so even though they're big legislation fails they know they have support in Congress for the ideas we said. Let's look at everything everything we can agree upon.

"Our to the Saturday morning update on WMA joined each week by John gizine as the White House correspondent chief political columnist at news com. And we'll have John for two primary reasons. Number one. He can connect the dots. On a lot of the stories. We see during the week, and he can give us a perspective of past precedents. When it comes to today story, so John good morning. Great to have you with us. To be here. And I have said on many occasions to use the title of an old television show that was the week that was that was the Friday that was at the White House because it appeared that there was sort of a different strategy. The vice-president did a TV interview in the morning. President Trump met with reporters after this meeting with the Slovakian prime minister, we had Sarah Sanders out on the White House lawn. We had Larry cudlow out there. Connect the dots for us. Well, very simply the administration is launching an offensive too. And I hope you will pardon the phrase move on dot org from the Muller report. There's a lot of crisis in the world beginning with Venezuela in such incendiary situation. Right south of our own border to Iran whose economy collapsed last week to North Korea or the press. Is still in touch with the government of Kim Young on and still hopes to make some kind of deal with them on arms. And of course, there's the Muller report on the day. I might add that it was reported that the jobless rate was the lowest in forty nine years one could call this. I'm effort to simply get the dialogue on foreign policy and economics rather than Muller and alleged Russian collusion. I might add that Sarah Sanders in one of her rare. But increasingly noticeable briefings this time in the White House driveway. She did point out that the president spoke to Russian President Putin yesterday morning much of the talk was on Venezuela and North Korea. But he. Also assured him what Sarah said Putin knew all along that there was no Russian collusion. Any cited the conclusion of the special prosecutor overall, this is an administration, which is widely accused of being out of touch with the media obscuring facts being obstreperous with reporters if not downright cold and yet all their top spokesman out there front and center, I might add on a very very hot day between the president walking onto the helicopter or answering questions and a cabinet meeting, or when he's meeting with a foreign leader, even telephone call on on a radio interview, he's very very acceptable. At least every other days out there if not every day, sometimes Sarah Sanders. This president has taken more questions from people and reporters than any other president. And that is true still, and I can say this from personal experience the nationally televised briefings in the afternoon are missed reporters from smaller publications that cannot afford someone to be at the White House. Twenty four seven missed the one opportunity they have to get an answer back from the president stop spokeswoman. So while it is true. That more is being disseminated from the White House, and there's a greater reach it ain't the way it was contentious hearings on Capitol Hill for the attorney general William bar and the way it's ended out with Jerry Nadler, threatening a possible contempt of congress. It reminds me of the airi'q holder affair. Found in contempt of congress. And I want to read a quick paragraph from politico, June twenty eighth twenty twelve the house voted to hold attorney general Eric Holder in contempt of congress over his failure to turn over documents related to the fast and furious scandal. The first time congress has taken such a dramatic move against a sitting cabinet official. In a statement released by his office. Holder blasted the contempt vote as politically motivated and misguided. Quote. Today's vote is the regrettable coma nation of what became a misguided and politically motivated investigation during an election year shape of things to come Eric Holder, by the way was voted in contempt of congress by the full house of representatives two hundred and fifty five to sixty seven with seventeen Democrats voting to hold him in contempt and two Republicans voting against. The major the rest of the Democrats led by then minority leader Nancy Pelosi angrily walked out of the house chamber in protest. Eric Holder was eventually acquitted of any wrongdoing following an investigation by you guessed it, the inspector general of the Justice department. My guess is that if chairman Nadler pursues, the same course of contempt. He's going to be reminded of the dismissive responses by his fellow Democrats when Republicans tried to pursue the same course against Eric Holder now mind, you this William bar is being harangue because of his interpretation of special prosecutor's report. Eric Holder was being harangued.

"As we talked tonight, a Facebook banning certain provident individuals from Facebook, and we're talking with Lou Perez. They head writer and executive producer of the webby award winning. We the internet TV and looking at this. I must confess that that my first reaction was I suppose rather American reaction will you if you don't like Ford's by Chevy, and then it occurred to me, of course, we love you don't like Facebook than pound sand mean, why isn't there a viable competitor to to Facebook or Instagram or Twitter, or whatever. Well, I mean, if anybody out there, and if your listeners one of, you know, you know, join forces and make us, you know, it was up or something like that. I'm totally down. I I'm I'm not sure I mean, I think what we might have, you know, maybe a little bit of a kind of a short memory, and that we don't remember, you know, things like my space, and how mice base, you know, was was the go-to for a social media for so long. And then Facebook came along. I'm not sure I mean, I I would I would imagine that it must be, you know, pretty extensive for startup to, you know, compete in this in this marketplace against, you know, all these these giant of each of these conglomerates, I know there was a there was a platform called mine mine's dot com. Am I n b s dot com? And I think I actually have a profile on there. But I haven't checked it out. I think I think I think like a lot of. People. I'm pretty lazy in that. Facebook is just therefore maybe Twitter is just air for me in my browser. But you know, if an alternative comes comes along. I know a lot of people are interested in this. Well, there's going to be certainly a market for it. Clearly, a there are a tremendous amount of usage on Facebook. And be a lot of satisfaction with the kinds of things that we're talking about tonight if anything ever screamed out, of course, you're going to have to have some money. But that's okay. There are lots of people out there with spare money. I don't know what to do with it. So I just I it struck me as as very odd that we haven't seen it. And I think back at a little over a century ago when there were a number of institutions which had come along in our national life, which had been very useful. But all of a sudden, it became clear to many people that they have become not only very useful. But extremely powerful. And that they were using that power to distort their rightful place in our society. This was the era of the trust. Busting the era of the steel trust and the sugar trust and the oil trust in the railroads and all the rest of that. And of course, we wound up with antitrust laws and things of that nature. I'm not sure in the digital age if Facebook and similar organizations are approaching that. But there's no doubt about the fact that the power in the hands of Mark Zuckerberg is considerable and at the very least what I just talked about is worthy of discussion. Certainly. Yeah. I know a lot of people are having having that talk, Brendan O'Neill who is the editor of for spike magazine, which is a a British magazine, kind of a a left libertarian Maga's often talked about that about the idea of regulating, you know, something like Facebook and YouTube as if it was a public square, you know, sort of under the same jurisdiction as a as a as a public square would be, you know, I don't know too much about antitrust law or how that works. But I mean, if you know just looking at it from, you know, from the point of view of Mark Zuckerberg, we're trying to at least for this moment. I mean, the one thing about, you know, being regulated and regulating, this particular thing is that. Well, you know, it makes it a lot harder for competitors to get over those. Initial hurdles and start something new up. If you know, if if they're all these requirements, as I'm sure they'll be all these requirements as far as you know, bandwith, and and all these number of things that you have to check off your list in order to be deemed adequate, and you know, being fulfilling a platform a lot of the little guys are just not going to be able to compete with that. And. Yeah. And ultimately to just just one last thing of that. I don't know if anybody out there saw the congressional hearings where there were members of of Twitter and Google and Facebook there, and they were being asked these questions from you know, from from sitting representatives who had no idea what Facebook was or Google. That was one of the more interesting such hearings of us confess. And so just the idea that those people would be responsible for crafting legislation. I mean, it's it's I don't I don't know if that's the route. We wanna go down. Yeah. I recall some years ago when Senator Strom Thurmond was on a committee. It was in his is later years when he was shall we say, not as sharp as he wants it been and to one particular witness who was hard to hear at least for the Senator he urged them to lean forward and talk into the machine. So yes, I I see what you're talking about. Let me hasten to it. I am not one of those people who says there's a problem here. Let's turn to government right off the bat. I do not believe that the department of motor vehicles is the answer to every single problem we have. But I am of the viewpoint that some problems may as a last resort need to at least consider government intervention, and frankly lacking such competition lacking people who have jumped in and provided an altar. Turn it. If I'm thinking about it. Now, I'm just one person. But the thought has occurred to me, I don't see Mark Zuckerberg changing for the simple reason. Why should he he's a moldy kazillionaire and other than a than a painful hearing? Nobody's really doing anything about him. So if he he wants to the wave his magic wand and and play God, why not? Yeah. We we we actually premiered the documentary five reasons why we need hate speech last week in New York City, and we had a panel discussion and Acuna and one of the one of the audience members who participated in Acuna put forth, you know, just sort of sort of give some context to it. And you know, Mark Zuckerberg, not only is he dealing with users of Facebook who are upset with him. But he's also dealing with you know, sponsors who are upset with him. And he's also dealing with the government which is upset with him. You know, with you know, the whole Russian box thing and ads fake news and all that stuff. So, you know, the the the guy is is while, you know, obviously, he's he's loaded. The guy's got so much money the platform and the importance of that platform plays in the culture at large. As well. As you know, you know, just the citizen of the, you know, the importance that it is for the citizens right now, the guys dealing with a lot of stuff, and I don't know if I'd be able to juggle all of that. Yeah. What? Eight six six five O, JIMBO and more calls to come Lou Perez, head writer and executive producer of we the internet TV. And we're looking at the moves by Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg speaks from the corporate headquarters located somewhere near Mount Olympus. We'll be back.

"It's an election lawyer concerted back to this formerly employed by the USDA O J under the George W Bush administration. Please welcome j Christian Adams to the program Christian. How are you Joe conscious wheel New York, Joanne Lees some doing good? So I'm sure you've been watching like the country has what's been going on in Washington. The last two days, obviously, attorney general bar goes before the Senate Judiciary committee on Wednesday. Obviously that was explosive very tense went on for about eight hours afterwards bar said, he was not going to appear before the House Judiciary committee. Citing that staffers shouldn't be able to ask him questions where you have a Jerry Nadler, for instance, who last check isn't attorney, and there are many attorneys on that judiciary committee that are very capable of doing that. And plus maybe he just saw this thing for what it was which was the circus that it was becoming for political gain. So what do you see here? How do you unpack it? And where do we go from here? Well, don't forget the attorney general of the United States has pretty wide discretion in deciding what sort of reports come out of the Justice department. He is not an independent elected branch of government. And so for some of the more outlandish conclusions that may have been in that report, the attorney general obligations to review it. What do I see? I mean, look, I've testified the House Judiciary committee. I did so couple months ago, and the last thing you want to get to the bottom of anything to have some of these staffers who who line the back wall during hearings driving the show Jerrold Nadler, at least has some measure of of shall we say decorum. But when it comes to the staffers, you're dealing with some of the most partisan rabid people in the entire city of Washington DC, sorry to what exactly was the problem for allowing staffers that are staffed work. For the congressmen and women to allow them to ask some questions. I believe they were going to be limited to thirty minutes asking questions of attorney general bar. It's lawyer upon lawyer follow-up cross examination questions that would then inform their bosses Nadler in the other the other congressmen and women on the sit on the committee members of the committee for starters. And when you have a hearing of of that nature. That's why you elect people to congress to conduct the hearing. It's just it's very rare that staffers are the ones driving hearings. I mean, sometimes it happens behind closed doors, and there's a deposition like the house oversight committee engaged in the previous congress were staffers would play a role there. But these are public hearings and their public hearings of the members of the committee, not the employees of congress who who who might ask some really good questions. It's supposed to be hearing of congress, not hearing of Congress's employees. Christian. The committee though, voted twenty one to fourteen to allow staff cans council to ask these questions. And that is a legislative prerogative to be able to say this is how we're going to run our committee. That's the legislative branch able to do what they kind of want to do and run the way they want to run it. So now is the attorney general sort of allowed to come in and say, well, we're just not going to abide by legislative rules. Well, I mean, I remember Senator Strom Thurmond his staff used to write his questions on index cards. And if you wanna see something real fun, go back and watch those hearings where rebe index card and ask the question. I mean in the end staffers have the ability to get their questions asked. I don't understand. Why would be such a controversy to actually have the members of congress conducting a congressional hearing actually ask the question. And we're talking with Christian Adams, former US department of Justice lawyer under George W Bush a Christian. That's the thing. Right. I mean, if Bill bar volunteers to appear before this committee, and the already appeared before the Senate when people say he's scared and somebody actually puts a chicken where he was supposed to be sitting or, you know, obviously, a dollar one Kentucky Fried Chicken that just shows the children that we have as our lawmakers in some regards. But when you've all tear doesn't that mean negotiation in other words, okay? Yeah. All appear, but it's not going to be completely. And totally by the rules that you said and from what I've seen for two hundred and six years staffers. Don't ask questions in open House Judiciary committee's. It's never happened before. So there is Preston here. Correct. Well, I mean, look you had you had Watergate council in the in the seventies. Asking questions open hearings, though televised. There were there were that was the Senate though. Correct. Well, I think it might have been in. We'll definitely is in front of the Senator from North Carolina. Right. The house. I think it's unprecedented. But but regardless I see your point as far as context Senate Halley. You're exactly right. If you're if you're appearing voluntarily you I appear voluntarily in front of congress about once or twice a year. And you know, I can say no, I'm not going to say, no, I'm not going to answer questions. If you wanna find another witness, go ahead. But if you if you if you don't like it the national subpoena. I mean, that's the alternative. That's how the system is supposed to work is congress has subpoena power, and let them subpoena, the attorney general do you do you think that he will appear eventually Christian? Why do I mean this is not going to be some sort of situation where the attorney Joel never shows up. I mean, look mad ignored the house roles. He didn't one regular water. He didn't want debates on amendments. It was going to be my way or the highway and general bar said, no we're going to play by standard operating procedure. If you want me to testify voluntarily and we're speaking with j Christian Adams Christian, I'm curious. Do you think that Democrats there's a pull out yesterday saying that seventy percent of democratic voters favor impeaching the president, regardless of dough collusion being found between president President Trump's associates and Russia is this something that you think the Democrats just because of that pressure from the left flank of their party will pursue or will cooler. Heads prevail. Will never prevail on this issue, the left flank of the democrat party is in in in fold arrangements. It it is not possible to bottle it back in. And that's why you have these outlandish positions being taken strangely from a lot of congress members of congress from New York City for some reason, and you're just going to have this this intensification of polarization because you know, it was rabbit as they are in their hatred of the president anything he touches the president's supporters are equally rabbit, and they're supportive him. And so it's a precarious situation where the country grows even more polarized. And frankly, it looks like people are happy to to increase the levels of polarization by forcing issues like this in most. I look I I've gone on the networks any number of times. Frankly, the issues is seem so played out. I mean, it seems to me to be done issue, but not to Jerrold Nadler, not and not to his base. So I think we're gonna hear. A lot more of it. It seems like the president makes it more of an issue by saying he's not gonna let his former White House counsel Mcgann testify, you know, that he's that mccan. He's denying statements that he made Mcgann Mcgann said that he made it seems like he's the one that's dragging it on if they're if the investigation would just begun. We done fairly quickly. It would seem to me. I'd hardly consider a client of an attorney asserting his privilege. Not have that attorney testify about things he said dragging it on when when it's Mcgann who's being dragged in front of people to testify the person dragging it on as the person who wants to break, the attorney client privilege between the president is lawyers. So Don Mcgann, it can't testify about things that his client said did testify or did speak to Muller's team thirty hours. Executive privilege on that. On those matters. He's already waived executive privilege roll, the president can assert executive privilege any moment. He doesn't wave it and can't wave at permanently that he's already waived executive privilege on those matters, not on everything. But on those matters he had and we'll have to leave it there. Jay Krishna election. Lawyer conservative activists DOJ under George W Bush. Thanks so much for joining us Christian, very good. And we come back lease more on the hottest story of the day.

"Know. It's a death cult. It's it's it's amazing to see. And then they closed with Hugo Chavez with me. No. You know, you got Chavis. Big. Do they censor Chagas? Meaning really that's how Cesar Chavez, Cesar Chavez. Okay. We're going to boycott grapes again. Okay. Cesar Chavez, not Hugo Chavez what nobody even knows Cesar Chavez anymore. Can what kind of lunatic introduces anything having to do a Caesar Chavez? Honestly, what is the matter with these people? And they do this weird clap because they're a cult raise your hands over your head. Now. Follow my class. Honestly. It's Monty python. You must be individuals. Yes. Let's go to let's go to the telephone. Let's say five not taking a phone call in a while in a while. Now, let's go to let's go to Lisa calling from from Nokes Ville Virginia. Lisa you're on. The Chris Plante show. Probably I'm excited to be talking to you. I'm a huge fan Drake cited to have you on the show. My question for you, a college professor actually several who told me in my class before basically that at some point the party faith in meaning that that theme party the Republican party that free to slave actually is the Democratic Party today. Yeah. That's that's pretty good trick. And that question how can they say this? And what can I say to somebody who is trying to tell me that this is a fact, well, you know, you probably have to do a little bit of reading on it. The reality is a nineteen sixty eight they claim the southern strategy of Richard Nixon allowed or or created a situation where the Republican party took in all of the southern racists that until that point had been voting for Democrats. But then they say the Democrats gave up racism, which has clearly untrue. Even today in the New York Times and laced over the weekend and the New York Times on college campuses with segregation. It's the left advancing segregation racial segregation today. The southern strategy is something that you can read up on. But I'll tell you what at least because I've read up on this myself, if you if you search for being or Google the myth of the southern strategy the myth of the southern strategy, you'll find story after story and victims. Aurea told me that you that you wanted to bring this up that you're a college student now that your professors are feeding you the democrat party propaganda line. Which is there was some kind of country. Swing dance dose Edo in nineteen sixty eight and they shed all of their racist history, which is completely absurd. And the Republicans took up racism somehow, it just kind of amazing now Senator Strom Thurmond, for example, had been a lifelong democrat Dixie crat racist. Segregationist gave up all that stuff. And later in life became a Republican Senator Robert Byrd from West Virginia created the cake had democrat created the KKK in West Virginia state of democrat all his life. He was eulogized by Barack Obama, quite ironically. But this is a clansman a segregationist, Richard Russell, all the all the Democrats racist and segregationist, and then the Democrats with the help of academia and the New York Times had to find a way like snakes to shed their skin and reinvent themselves, which they do from time to time because they have echinacea and the New York Times working for them and. Ali would too for that matter. Now, the reality is that in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight the country was coming apart at the seams LBJ had gotten a so far into the Vietnam war after John F Kennedy got us in a little bit LBJ got us in a lot and in nineteen sixty eight they were riots we had the assassination of Martin Luther King followed by the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, and the Democrats were driving the country into the side of a mountain and most Americans decided that the Democrats were no longer their favorite party in that included a lot of former democrat voters in the south and all kinds of states across the south the Republicans had, but they called the sunshine state strategy, which went from Florida to California. But and the south is in there, but it wasn't necessarily specifically targeting southern states. They the segregation issue the Democrats had fought hard to maintain segregation. And so on they ended up losing the fight a Republican president Dwight Eisenhower had to send the one hundred first airborne division down to Little Rock Arkansas to move a democrat governor. Out of the school house store at central high in Little Rock and so on. But here's what I want you to do because I know I've been hearing this argument for years, just like you. And in fact, I think I was probably taught the same lie when I was in college. But if you Google the words myth of the southern strategy, and I did that while while you were waiting there is a good pace by Danish. Desouza in the hill called the myth of Nixon's southern strategy. There are several pieces I even found one in the New York Times of all liberals, like college professors must believe everything that has written in the New York Times because it's the law the myth of the southern strategy and the New York Times on it's actually kind of a book review of of scholars academics. Honest ones a couple picking apart the notion that the Democrats have been peddling, look, you know, Elissa you've been watching the Russia collusion thing. It's ally. The there is no crisis at their border there at our southern border. There are no caravans coming. It's ally. The the number of lies these. These people tell on a daily basis is just mind boggling, and the idea, of course, they wanted to wash their hands of their racist history. Of course, they did. They're the people that the kicked black people out of the Woolworth's sitting at the lunch counter. They're the people that had the black only drinking fountains. Of course, they want to absolve themselves of their sins and their crimes it was FDR that through every Japanese person in the United States into an internment camp in in my mother and father is lifetime. You know? This is you think this can't happen? It can when you have draconian governments in charge even in the United States. But in case, I do go on don't talk. Here's what I'd like you to do at least I'd like you to Google the myth of the southern strategy. Find the national Souza's piece find peace by Klay Reisen in the New York Times magazine and give those read and those will those will give you clues to the next the next thing to read and life. Unfortunately requires a lot of reading, and I know that and I know that liberals won't believe if it comes. From the daily caller comes from the daily caller doesn't matter. How true it is? Which is why with liberals I always liked to use sources like the New York Times, your professor will hate to Nash to Sousa because the national Sousa is a first generation American immigrant Indian and he's smarter than your professor. So he resigned as a conservative, and they don't like immigrants to be conservatives and be pro Americans. So they're very resentful of that. But with college professors, it's always best to use Washington Post, New York Times left wing sources to shoot down their own false claims and their myths that they like to peddle, you know, what I mean there are a couple of books referenced in there. I don't expect you to go through and read all the books on it. But I think that you can find articles that will provide you with a bucket full of of counter points. So that you may reasonably and rationally as an adult it's hard to find this kind of a conversation. These days present your professor with counterfacts, which do not support his claim. And then I mean, honestly today, it's the left and Democrats that are segregating college campuses. It's this guy in the New York Times that says he won't date white women because his friends have pressured him his friends are all liberals to date. White women is the soft bigotry of low expectations that the democrat party and the left brings and I gotta say another thing Republican elected Republican officials are terrified of issues of race. They don't they don't chase issues of race. They don't the left. And that includes the news media loves to claim that Republicans are dividing the country along lines of race. I challenge them to find a single instance where that's the case, and they'll say, well, Trump wants a Muslim ban. It's not a race. There's a thing called terrorism, and it didn't even apply to whole bunch of Muslim countries. Just by the way, only the countries that could not guarantee that they check passports before people got on planes and things like that and close the border. Well, the border is out of control and that goes to sovereignty and by the way, everybody south of the border. Is Caucasian they're Hispanic, but they're Caucasian. So it's an ethnic thing not a race thing. But they don't differentiate because they're not very bright people. And I know what you're up against. I want to ask where you're going to school because they're all the same anyway. But but this is what they try to drill into your head. When you're a college student, and it happened to me too. I was a liberal when I was in college, and and I had to educate myself to get up to speed on these matters because your college professors are not gonna help in this regard. Generally speaking, the news media, and Stephen Colbert are not going to help in. This regard the New York Times not gonna help Hollywood movies. They're not going to help. So you really have to do your own research on this stuff. But but the whole southern strategy idea that they were stealing the racists from the Democrats is ludicrous. It was nineteen sixty eight Vietnam assassinations riots, the democratic convention they lost get over it. And honestly, it's kind of like two thousand sixteen Lisa where? They lost. And they can't get over it. And they have to make up fantastical stories, and that's what they did in nineteen sixty eight when they lost. It was LBJ. He wasn't even running again got us into the Vietnam war, Hubert Horatio, Hornblower Humphrey, and Richard Nixon one they lost. They made up a story about it. All they stole are racists. No, no. Actually, we didn't. It's just that. Nobody voted for you that year because you were burning the country down, and you had us in another war in southeast Asia. And by the way, Harry Truman democrat got us into the Korean war. FDR got a set of World War, Two liberal, Democrat and turned all the Japanese and the segregationist racist clan supporter. Woodrow Wilson of progressive democrat got us into World War One just a couple of fun facts and the president of the confederacy was Jefferson Davis. And he was a democrat Lincoln was a Republican. So honestly, and then they wash their hands of themselves. They distance themselves from themselves because of their own stain of a history. And they. Naturally blame the other guy because that's what we do know what I mean I've gone on for long enough heaven. I appreciate it. It just blows my mind that people are such sheep. And they believe this stuff that they're fed. They're lazy. They're intellectually lazy. And I've got a problem with college professors that still pedal this stuff because if they do this for a living. I mean, I do this for a living. I'm not a college professor. But I gobble up information all day every day pretty much and these people apparently don't either that or they're intellectually dishonest. And I guess it's probably mostly the latter rather than the former, but it's a terrible thing and college I are you having a wonderful time at college. Are you learning a lot of good stuff? Or can you not say? And a lot of good things transferring from college to liberty university. Okay. Well, congratulations. That's gonna make all the difference in the world. See there, you're going to be challenged with facts, and with documents historical documents, you're going to become an expert on the constitution of the United States. That is great. And you're and you're not going to be brainwashed. You're going to be educated. Boy, that's great. Congratulations. Thank you so much. Then one day you're going to look back on this professor in community college. And you're going to laugh at this person. You say how can and it's not just community college that you get this at at major universities and colleges all across America. You get insane things insane things there the left they lie all the time. And it scares me because these domini young people even my sister, they're leading that way. And they can't be relate yet. And I hope that people grow out of it. Yeah. Well, it it becomes a pop culture thing. If you're going to be on the inside of the joke at Saturday Night, Live and Stephen Colbert, you gotta be on that side of the argument, you, you know, you know, who the bad guys are those terrible racist Republicans. Now, I mean, again, Republicans aren't segregating schools colleges along lines of race. Democrats are just as they did in the nineteen fifties and before and we're the ones who argue against racial segregation. And we still have to argue with Democrats over racial segregation because they are still racially segregating America just scratching the surface. Right. There gives you a pretty good taste of what's going on. Republicans are not doing that Elissa. Thank you very much. Thank you so much. I want you to check back in your you're at liberty. For a while. Okay. All right. Thanks very much. God bless that. What a great opportunity. I wish I could go to liberty right now. I wish I could just go become a college student at liberty university. That'd be.

"They opened the democrat party event. Now, it's a death cult. It's it's it's amazing to see. And then they close with Hugo Chavez. Excuse me. You know, you go Chavis. Big. Meaning like. Chagas? Meaning really that's how Cesar Chavez, Cesar Chavez. Okay. We're gonna boycott grapes again. Okay. Cesar Chavez, not Hugo Chavez what nobody even knows Cesar Chavez anymore. What kind of lunatic introduces anything having to do with Cesar Chavez, honestly, what is the matter with these people? And they do this weird clap because they're a cult raise your hands over your head. Now, follow my class. Honestly. It's Monty python. You must be individuals. Yes. All right. Let's go to let's go to the telephone. So let's say five not taken a phone. Call. While in a while. Now, let's go to let's go to Lisa calling from from Nokes Ville Virginia Alicia, you're on the Chris Plante show. Okay. I am so excited to be talking to you. I'm a huge fan. I'm break cited to have you on the show. My question for you. I have a college professor actually several told me and my class before basically that at some point the party switched places. Meaning that that same party the Republican party that frees a slave actually is the Democratic Party today. Yeah. That's that's pretty good trick. How can they say this? And what can I say to somebody who is trying to tell me that this is a fact, well, you know, you probably have to do a little bit of reading on it. The reality is in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight they claim the southern strategy of Richard Nixon allowed or or created a situation where the Republican party took in all of the southern racists that until that point had been voting for Democrats. But then they say the Democrats gave up racism, which is clearly untrue. Even today in the New York Times and laced over the weekend on the New York Times and on college campuses with segregation. It's the left advancing segregation racial segregation today. The southern strategy is something that you can read up on. But I'll tell you what Eliza because I've read up on this myself if you if you search for being or Google the myth of the. Southern strategy the myth of the southern strategy. You'll find story after story and Victoria told me that you that you wanted to bring this up that you're a college student, and that your professors are feeding you the democrat party propaganda line. Which is there was some kind of a country. Swing dance. Doe see DOE and one thousand nine hundred sixty eight and they shed all of their racist history, which is completely absurd. And the Republicans took up racism somehow, which is kind of amazing now Senator Strom Thurmond, for example, there'd been a lifelong democrat, a Dixie Crowder racist to segregationist gave up all that stuff. And later in life became a Republican Senator Robert Byrd from West Virginia created the cake had democrat created the KKK in West Virginia state of democrat all his life. He was eulogized by Barack Obama, quite ironically. But this is a clansman a segregationist, Richard Russell, all the all the Democrats were racist and segregationist and then. The Democrats with the help of academia and the New York Times had to find a way like snakes to shed their skin and reinvent themselves, which they do from time to time because they have echoed in the in the New York Times working for them and Hollywood too for that matter. Now, the reality is that in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight the country was coming apart at the seams LBJ had gotten a so far into the Vietnam war after John F Kennedy got us in a little bit LBJ got us in a lot and in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight there were riots we had the assassination of Martin Luther King followed by the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, and the Democrats were driving the country into the side of a mountain and most Americans decided that the Democrats we're no longer their favorite party in that included a lot of former democrat voters in the south and all kinds of states across the south. The Republicans had what they called the sunshine state strategy, which went from Florida to Cal. But and the south is in there, but it wasn't necessarily specifically targeting southern states. The the segregation issue the Democrats had fought hard to maintain segregation. And so on they ended up losing the fight a Republican president Dwight Eisenhower had to send the one hundred first airborne division, down to Little Rock Arkansas to move a democrat governor out of the school house store at central high in Little Rock and so on. But here's what I want you to do because I know I've been hearing this argument for years, just like you. And in fact, I think I was probably taught the same lie when I was in college. But if you Google the words myth of the southern strategy, and I did that while while you're waiting there is a good pace by Dinesh desouza in the hill called the myth of Nixon's southern strategy. There are several pieces I even found one in the New York Times of all and liberals like college professors must believe everything that has written in the New York Times because it's the law. Law the myth of the southern strategy and the New York Times on it's actually kind of a book review of of scholars academics. Honest ones. A couple picking apart the notion that the Democrats have been peddling look Elissa you've been watching the the Russia collusion thing. It's ally. The there is no crisis at their border at our southern border. There are no caravans coming. It's ally. The the number of lies these these people tell on a daily basis is just mind boggling, and the idea, of course, they wanted to wash their hands of their racist history. Of course, they did. They're the people that kicked black people out of the Woolworth's sitting at the lunch net counter near the people that had the black only drinking fountains. Of course, they want to absolve themselves of their sins and their crimes it was FDR that through every Japanese person in the United States into an internment camp in in my mother and father. Lifetime. You know? This is you think this can't happen? It can when you have draconian governments in charge even in the United States. But any case I do go on don't tie. Here's what I'd like you to do at least. I'd like you to Google the myth of the southern strategy. Find initiatives Souza's piece find the piece by Klay Reisen in the New York Times magazine and give those read and those will those will give you clues to the next the next thing to read and life. Unfortunately requires a lot of reading, and I know that and I know that liberals won't believe if it comes from the daily caller that comes from the daily caller doesn't matter. How true it is? Which is why with liberals I always like to use sources like the New York Times. You're a professor will hate to Sousa because the national Sousa is a first generation American immigrant Indian any smarter than your professor. So he resent and he's a conservative, and they don't like immigrants to be conservatives and be pro Americans. So they're they're very resentful of that. But with college professors, it's always best to use Washington Post, New York Times left wing sources to shoot down their own false claims and their myths that they liked to peddle, you know, what I mean? And there are a couple of books referenced in there. I don't expect you to go through and read all the books on it. But I think that you can find articles that will provide you with a bucket full of of counter points. So that you may reasonably and rationally as an adult it's hard to find this kind of a conversation. These days present your professor with counter facts, which do not support his claim. And then I I mean, honestly today, it's the left and Democrats that are segregating college campuses. It's this guy in the New York Times that says he won't date white women because his friends have pressured Emma's friends are all liberals to not date. White women. It is the soft big. A tree of low expectations that the democrat party and the left brings. I've got to say another thing. Eliza Republican elected Republican officials are terrified of issues of race. They don't they don't chase issues of race. They don't the left. And that includes the news media loves to claim that Republicans are dividing the country along lines of race. I challenge them to find a single instance where that's the case, and they'll say, well, Trump wants a Muslim ban. It's not a race.

"Hold on Facebook. I'm David Armstrong wants to know question was during my time in government service. What was the funniest thing? I ever saw. Without any reservation. It is this. I was testifying before the United States Senate. I don't even remember what committee. It was. Since Robert Byrd of West Virginia was on the committee. And there was a vote. The bell rang for a vote. Senator Byrd was just old enough and didn't care about whether he was on record voting for something or not. So while all the other senators scattered to go vote. He remained in the committee room. I don't remember who the I think the chair of the committee time may have been Joe Lieberman from Connecticut. And Senator Lieberman announced that they were gonna take a ten minute break while the senators went to cast their vote. So rather than getting up and leaving my staff, and I decided to just stay in the committee room. I continued to sit in the witness chair. And was just talking to my staff when we noticed a sinister bird had not left. Silverberg caught my eye. And he asked me if I was and I want to say it was Jim Ed Brown. He wanted to know if I was related to this old, West Virginia bluegrass singer. And I think his name was Jim Ed Brown. And I said, well Senator I I'm not that. I'm I'm somewhat familiar with with his music. And the Senator said, you know, he's one of my favorite artists. Whereupon Senator Byrd. The former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan began to seem to me. Jerry was sitting on the dice all by himself. There was a smattering of people in the audience. It was me and probably I don't know four or five staffers. And there was Senator Byrd. Singing some bluegrass song from Jim Ed Brown. I sat there. I didn't know what to do. So I just listen to him. When he finished I stood up and clapped and said Senator that was a mighty fine. Singing. I thought my staff we're gonna laugh the rest of the day after we left that committee hearing there was the grand wizard the KKK sing singing me a song. Those the funniest thing. So the second funniest thing was and this is actually kind of sad. After nine eleven we were in the above. The Senate chambers is a skiff a secure compartmentalized information facility. It's a top secret place where you can go. And you can't take your cell phones in soundproof and the Reuss the Reuss skis can't spy and listening to what's going on. And so me, the Attorney General John Ashcroft? George at the director of the CIA. And Condoleeza Rice at the time the national security advisor, the four of us were there to brief the Senate intelligence committee about what we were doing post nine eleven. This was like maybe two days. This is like maybe September thirteen or fourteen. And it was just supposed to be the Senate intelligence committee. But the room just kept filling up and we kept telling well hold on. We're going to delay the briefing. They kept delaying the briefing and pretty soon we realized that the room had filled up with all one hundred US senators. I was sitting. Right now. I don't know how this always happened. But for whatever reason Hilary Clinton, and I always ended up sitting together and these kinds of meetings, so Hillary Clinton, and I are sitting next to each other about two rows behind the third row from the front on the end right in front of us. There is an empty spot where chair would be. But instead it was for Senator Strom Thurmond for some for Senator Thurmond to be wheeled in in his wheelchair and Senator Thurmond at that point was way beyond having his faculties. It was rumored that is chief of staff who had wheeled him into the Senate chamber or the Senate room for that briefing had also been casting his votes on his behalf. John Ashcroft, then the attorney general starts the briefing and. Since and leans over to his chief of staff and in avoidance that he thinks is quiet says. I don't remember. The chiefs staffs name. Let's just say it's Charlie Charlie who's talking up there. And Charlie has to explain to the Senator that it's the attorney general of the United States of America. So sitting United States Senator doesn't have a clue. Who the attorney general of the United States is? Fun times. Absolutely. Some fun times. A strip club. You see? I just do that segue. That's that's that's a perfect segue. Right there. You got the grand wizard of the KKK, and he got Strom Thurman, and now we're gonna talk about strip clubs it all fits it. All fits perfectly a strip club in Dayton, Ohio has been off more than they can choose after they lost their liquor license following an investigation that proved it was allowing customers to use food stamps. To buy drugs and lap dances. Five-month investigation. I'm sorry. I just find it funny. Hey, baby. Can I get a lap dance? Sure. Do you take e-bt cards? Sure, let me get my phone out. Let me get my square reader plugged in. And you can swipe your card or you can just you know, I'll give you a really good lap dance. If you'll just give me your e BT card. During their five five-month investigational undercover agents. Use more than two thousand four hundred dollars in food stamps to buy dances along with a variety of drugs, including cocaine heroin. No. No, there's no problem. I I just think that we should we should look at this. As maybe that's where they get their nutrition. Maybe that's the kind of nutrition they need you.
