"Reed was just days away from being executed when he got a stay from Texas top court, Reid has been on death row for decades for the murder of Stacey stites. He's maintained his innocence through the years, and his case has gained national attention with support from celebrities and lawmakers as diverse as Kim Kardashian and senator Ted Cruz. Reed says a DNA test on the murder weapon, a belt that was used to strangle sites will prove his innocence, but the state of Texas has refused. Now whether he's executed could hinge on a decision by the Supreme Court on a technical issue, whether he filed his appeal to the federal courts too late. Joining me is Bloomberg law reporter Jordan Rubin. Jordan, tell us a little bit about read. Ronnie Reed has been on death row since 1998. He was convicted and sentenced to death for the 1996 murder of Stacey stites and Rita has maintained his innocence throughout and the latest issue that's brought his case to Supreme Court arguments is his attempt to get DNA testing on crime scene evidence, including the belt that strangled sites. This crucial piece of evidence was not tested, the state has reasons that it says it thinks that testing might not show anything, but in any event the state is resisting testing and that's what has led to Rodney Reeves lawsuit to try to force the state to do that testing. And it's the latest in the line of cases where there's a person who's claiming innocence and there's some evidence trending in that direction that has gotten the attention of people beyond just the legal community. Yeah, it's sort of echoes the case against adnan syed. That's gotten so much attention. So this is a federal civil rights claim? That's right. So what happened is this in trying to get DNA testing, Rodney Reed pursued that claim in the state court, but that claim was denied at the trial court level and then up through the state criminal appeals court. And so after that denial, Rodney Reed then filed a federal civil rights claim challenging the denial on the state level, saying that those state processes violated his due process. And so that's the crux of his federal claim. The problem is that Texas is saying that he waited too long to bring the claim. So the question at the Supreme Court is when the statute of limitations starts to run for a federal claim that state DNA testing procedures violated due process. Does it start to run when the state trial court denies testing or does it start to run when the state appeals process has played out? And so it's this very technical sort of question that one might be tempted to get lost in, but it's a crucial question. The answer could depend on whether Rodney Reed and others who are claiming innocence can get DNA testing in these types of cases. Was there any talk at all during the oral arguments about the fact that he claims he's innocent and the DNA test could possibly clear him? It's hard to see why you wouldn't give someone a DNA test. Right. So in terms of kind of the reality of the case, that wasn't the subject of the arguments. And that's often the case at the Supreme Court. Nonetheless, three lawyers certainly didn't mention the innocence aspect during the arguments, but there wasn't really this straight up question posed to Texas of why don't you just do the test that they're really focused more on the technical issue as is often the case at the court. Could you read where the justices were on this issue at all? I definitely saw justice is on both sides of the issue, for example, justice Thomas seems. The most likely to vote with the state is questions of both sides was the same, which was what liberty interest was read even deprived of in the first instance and who deprived him of it, but he was kind of on his own with that. Most of the justices were more so grappling with the crux of the issue that was presented in the case. But I really didn't get a sense that there was a majority coalescing around any particular answer to this question, at least at the argument. So it's another one of these where we're going to have to wait and see. I do think that read has a shot, although you really never know at the court because we're talking about a death row inmate and the court has been very skeptical of claims coming from death row. So

"I could not be more excited, and I think the reason is agenda of the radical left is such a disaster. People are ready to change the password. I think you're right. And I think we're going to shock the world in certain states, including here in Arizona. I think Blake masters is going to pull it out, and by the way, Arizona libertarian candidate drops out of race and endorses Blake masters. Senator, you've been very clear for years that we need a coalition of libertarians, conservatives, and traditional Republicans. I'm not a libertarian on a lot of issues, but I agree with them on size and scope of government and overreach of the national security apparatus and gun laws. Can you talk about that as we close out our conversation here, senator about how that coalition is going to need to materialize for victory a week from today? Listen, I agree with you that we need a broad coalition when it comes to libertarians. I'm not a full on libertarian. I'm a conservative, but I'm a conservative for libertarian reasons. And I think if you look at my voting record, I'm one of the three most libertarian senators in the Senate. Myself, Rand Paul and Mike Lee are pretty clearly the three most libertarian. Senators, I believe, number one, an individual liberty. I believe in small government. I believe in small businesses, I believe it's low taxes, I believe in low regulations. I believe in government staying the hell out of our lives. That means vigorously protecting free speech. That means stopping censorship of free speech. That means protecting the Second Amendment vigorously. That means protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You know, all the liberals cheering the FBI, raiding Donald Trump's home. That was an abuse of power. It's what I talk about in the book justice corrupted is, is the left uses power to target their enemies. I believe in civil liberties. I believe in protecting our rights, government is bad. Why do they want 87,000 new IRS agents to harass and harangue and target and go after you. The left supports government power and my view is we ought to have a coalition of everyone who values liberty standing together. By the way, I agree with you in Arizona. I think Carrie Lake is going to win. I think Blake masters is going to win. I did rallies with both Carrie and Blake and also with Eli crane who's going to get elected to Congress that who's going to be a great new congressman as well. Navy seal, strong lover of liberty. I think we need to be supporting people who know what they believe number one. People who can win number two. But people who will be warriors because I'll tell you Charlie once we win the majority, that's when the fight really starts because you and I both know they're going to be members of Republican leadership who are scared to fight and if we want the majorities to fight, we need to elect warriors to their own shadows. That's right. Justice corrupted how the left weaponized our legal system by senator Ted Cruz senator, thank you for all the hard work. You don't have to be working as hard as you have been on the campaign trail this cycle. It is noticed and it will make a difference. Senator hope to see you soon and thank you for always speaking at our turning point events that does really mean a lot to us. You always step up for us. So thank you, senator for your time today. Well, you guys do it amazing job, and I appreciate your Charlie and keep working to turn everyone out on election day. Amen. Thanks so much for listening, everybody. Email me your thoughts is always freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Thank you so much for listening. God bless. For more, on many of these stories and news you can trust. Go to Charlie Kirk dot com..

"Theory. It's at the heart of what Democrats believe today. That is well said. Rents are soaring at unprecedented highs. If you're renting or have a friend or family member that is now is a great time to make the move to home ownership. Look, you gotta own renting, that's great reset stuff. Andrew del Rey and Todd akin at Sierra Pacific mortgage have helped so many people make that leap from renting to owning, with lots of programs that offer first time buyers, assistance with little to no down payment needed. I encourage you right now to visit my buddies, their website, their great guys, their Christians, their conservatives, they love the lord, Andrew and Todd dot com right now. The thing I love about these guys is it's not about the transaction. They're helping you create a plan to help you reach your goals. Give them a call or go to their website Andrew and Todd dot com with today's still historically low interest rates. It's easier than you think to become a homeowner, I've relied on them and producer Andrew has as well. I highly recommend you take action now and if you know someone paying rent, tell them about Andrew and Todd go to Andrew and Todd dot com and tell them the Charlie Kirk show sent you. Senator, the great state of Texas, Robert Francis o'rourke. The question really is how much is he going to lose by right now? 9 points. 9 points. Okay, over under 9 points. And so talk about the race in Texas though, do you think that there might be a chance that the out of state liberals are going to get a little demoralized because the more they spend in Texas, actually, the margins are increasing. Well, that's true. And look, there's a mix of people coming to Texas. There are some people there in California, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, and they're fed up. They can't stand the liberals. They can't stand the left wing policies. And they decide they want to get out. And they look across the country. They decide, where do they want to go? And they pick Texas. And the data show those folks actually are more conservative than the median voter in Texas. They show up. They buy a pickup truck and boots and a hat and a gun, and they're fantastic. And I call those folks refugees for freedom. We want them here in Texas. Amen. There is another group that worries me and it's a company that transfers to Texas and moves all of its employees and those. That's right. Often they haven't made the choice that many of them still vote like where they came from. We've got both. Senator you've been traveling a lot for the midterms. What are the races that you're especially looking at in the last week here, not just to win Republican seats, but to win constitutional conservatives. I know you and I are both very invested in making sure senator Mike Lee beats Evan mcmuffin mcmullin. What are the other races you're looking at? Well, I think Mike Lee's race is critically important. I would encourage folks listening, go to Michael Lee's website and make a contribution because the Democrats are trying to really steal that race by deceiving the voters of Utah. And it is, it is uncomfortably close. I will say more broadly though. I am incredibly optimistic about election day. I think we're going to see a red tsunami. I think we're going to retake both houses. I think we could come out of the house with 30, 40, even 50 seat majority. And I think in the Senate, my number, I think we're going to come come out either with 53 or 54 Republicans in the Senate. And so Charlie, I've spent the last month on a 17 state national bus tour. Doing events, I'm not on the ballot this time around, so I'm spending all my time trying to help others trying to help elect candidates for Senate candidates for the House. So we started in Texas, did four rallies in Texas. One of the things I'm really excited about is the Rio Grande valley. I think we're going to elect three Republicans all latinas, all Hispanic women in the Rio Grande valley. That is a big deal and a generational change from South Texas. We went to New Mexico, then to Arizona, then to Nevada, then to Utah, then to Kansas, then the Missouri, then the Maryland, then the Ohio, then the Iowa, then the Virginia, then to Tennessee, then the North Carolina, then the Georgia, then the Florida, then back to Texas. I'm heading to Oklahoma today. I'm heading to Michigan tomorrow and then back to Texas for the final event of the bus tour. And I think we've got a chance to win all across the country..

"Trump. One of the things I talk about in the book justice corrupted is the meeting in the Oval Office on January 5th, 2017. With Barack Obama, Joe Biden, the head of the FBI, the CIA and the DoJ. This is 15 days before Trump would be sworn in as president and in the Oval Office, they agreed together to go after Trump to attack him and for four years of the Trump presidency. These partisans tried to destroy Donald Trump personally and tried to destroy the Trump agenda. And now Charlie under Joe Biden, it is metastasized. It is out in the open. They're not hiding it anymore. They view the machinery of government as the stormtroopers for the DNC and their partisan agenda. That is so well said the book is justice corrupted. I want to encourage our entire audience to pick up a copy of that. Senator, one of the chapters you talk about here is about the IRS coming knocking. You know, there's a lot of vulnerable Democrat senators right now, including Raphael Warnock and Mark Kelly, who run the hills every time you mentioned they voted for 87,000 new IRS agents with now how we see DHS operate with backend access to Facebook. I mean, is it inconceivable that the IRS might one day be able to get back into access to TurboTax or to other information warrantless ability information? That might sound outrageous or outlandish, but I don't trust this government at all. Talk about the expansion of the IRS and how you articulate that in your book justice corrupted. Well, as you noted, the Democrats just rammed through a bill authorizing 87,000 new IRS agents special agents who can carry guns who can come knock down your door and that is designed to target and harass and go after you. And you know, when you talk about the IRS wanting visibility into your financial transactions, remember Bernie Sanders build back better plan that Joe Biden put as his number one priority. Part of that was requiring financial institutions to report every transaction of $600 or more. To the Department of the Treasury. Every single one. That means your rent, unless you've got a really good deal on rent, you're probably paying more than 600 bucks a month for rent. If that's the case, every single financial transaction, maybe your car note, heck, give the Democrats another year or two. It might be filling up a tank of gas. I mean, they wanted that power that came very close to getting it. I believe when we take the majorities and I think we're going to take both the House and the Senate a week from today. When we do that, I think one of the very first priorities needs to be defunding those 87,000 new IRS agents. I think right after that, we need to impeach Alejandro mayorkas, the secretary of Homeland Security. Yes. And right after that, we need to impeach Merrick Garland for politicizing and abusing the Department of Justice and the FBI. Yeah, I think that's so smart. And we've said on the program, I don't think endorsing Joe Biden. I don't think that's a good use of time. Honestly, I think it's fine with political theater. But going after the deep state, that middle band is so important, right? I mean, they could replace Joe Biden with anybody, but mayorkas and Garland, you have to show the world that there is a check and balance on the deep state and in that bureaucracy..

"Hey, Charlie Kirk here, when it comes to liberals in Congress, there's no way they would accept term limits on themselves. And yet now they're fighting tooth and nail to impose term limits on Supreme Court Justices. Term limits for thee, but not for me. Sounds completely hypocritical. Of course it is. But since when has that ever been a problem for the American left? They do whatever they want to try to seize more power, even if it means purging the Supreme Court of its most experienced justices, to no one's surprise, their new court purging scheme would remove long serving amazing justices, like the super brilliant clarence Thomas and the courageous Samuel Alito. They would then replace these new justices with a rubber stamp and their radical agenda. Since Democrats are working hard to pass court purging with term limits, we need to work even harder to stop it, or the Supreme Court is we know it will never be the same. If you care about the integrity of the Supreme Court and don't want to see it taken over by political hacks, go to supreme coup dot com. That is supreme C OUP dot com. With us right now is one of the few good senators in the U.S. Senate and he's fighting for liberty and freedom in America. Every single day at senator Ted Cruz, senator, welcome back to the program. I know that you have a new book. I want to make sure we mention that and we get to that it is justice corrupted how the left weaponized our legal system, which actually somewhat ties together tangentially with one of the stories we want to talk about, but make sure you check out a copy of senator Ted Cruz's new book justice corrupted. Senator yesterday, it was revealed that the Department of Homeland Security has backend access to Facebook, a portal to be able to request Facebook to censor stories they don't like around racial justice and other issues. Senator, what is your reaction? Well, I wish I could say I was shocked, but I'm not shocked. We have seen this more and more with the federal government corruptly getting into bed with big tech. We now know also that the FBI was actively urging big tech to censor the story about Hunter Biden's laptop. And they were doing it that the FBI told big tech that that was Russian disinformation. That was totally false. We now know the story about Hunter Biden's laptop was true. It was accurate and big tech censored it forced the corporate media to censor it. And it was actively at the behest of the FBI. And that's really what the book is all about. It is about how Barack Obama and now Joe Biden have politicized and weaponized the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI and the IRS and they've turned them into weapons to target their political enemies and it is a profound threat, not just to the rule of law, but to individual liberty of all of us. And what is so interesting senator about this DHS story is in the leaked documents, they kind of self appointed themselves a role, and I mean, you are one of the more articulate the most articulate person I should say on the idea of separation of powers, but also congressional oversight. And these bureaucracies, the fourth branch of government, they kind of do whatever they want. So senator, I mean, you're on a lot of these committees. You vote on a lot of these bills. Since when did these agencies get permission or inform you that they were going to be involved directly in election meddling of information? I mean, do they just get to chart their own path now? This is outrageous. Well, they haven't. And they largely defy Congress. And if you look at the history of it, if you go back, the book justice corrupted starts with Richard Nixon. And Nixon tried to do this. He tried to use DoJ and the IRS, the FBI to go after his political enemies, by and large the system worked by and large the system resisted being politicized and Nixon resigned in disgrace. Well, what Nixon tried to do, Obama succeeded in doing. And he directed the IRS to target Tea Party groups to target conservative groups and pro life groups and pro Israel groups. They went after them. They persecuted them, then DoJ blocked investigations into them, defied Congress refused to prosecute contempt of Congress. And after 8 years of deep politicization of the federal agencies, what happened is these hardcore partisans burrowed into senior career positions at the agencies. And when Trump became president, the deep state waged war on.
The Ongoing War Against the ‘Disinformation Police’
"Story is remarkable. Somebody said Charlie, we knew this all along. No, we really didn't actually. We did not know the depth and the complexity and how blatant they are. So look, here's the big takeaway. We created a vast national security bureaucracy. And they're always going to try to justify their existence. So people like Lindsey Graham and senator blumenthal and senator Murphy that kind of uni party defender defense of the national security state, they're always saying, well, you know, terrorists could be around the corner. The problem is, what happens when you have a supply and demand problem with terrorists? Well, then you have to go find new terrorists. If all of a sudden, America doesn't have as many terrorists as you think we do, and ISIS and Al-Qaeda are not as strong as they used to be, but then you've got to go find new terrorists. And those terrorists just happen to be right wingers. So terrorism has faded in the traditional sense. And thanks to left wing politics, we aren't allowed to care about our border, so they've turned on the easiest target. Imaginable. DHS, by the way, should we focus on the invasion of our country 2 million people coming into America? Not worried about whether or not someone is challenging that we send aid to Ukraine or wondering, hey, are we really systemically racist? Policing free speech, monitoring speech, spying on the public and targeting etern internal American dissidents is the new focus of this regime. So the only fix to this is admitting an acknowledging we made a mistake when we passed the Patriot Act, we made a mistake when we put the DHS into power. We need to tear down these organizations quickly because we never needed them in the first place.
How the DHS Became the KGB
"An FBI official described to the intercept intercept being reassigned this year from the bureau's international terrorism division where they worked on things like Al-Qaeda and ISIS to the domestic terrorism division to investigate Americans. Their job involves penetrating online chat rooms and discussions to disrupt them. Now we are always talked about the famous we talked a lot about the famous disinformation governance board. When DHS announced and then quickly shut it down. But even though the board was shut down, its mission continues through other pernicious avenues. Immigration custom enforcement border patrol Secret Service they now all have their own anti disinformation components. The government using your taxpayer dollars without congressional oversight without congressional consent on a daily basis is no longer focused on ISIS or Al-Qaeda. No, they're using the terror apparatus that was built post 9 11 to go after you. Maga supporters, America first, conservatives, freedom lovers, this entire apparatus is for shredding the First Amendment, policing speech, and they are inserting and intervening into the distribution of information. How is this legal? And the answer is it really isn't.
Leaked Documents Outline DHS's Plans to Police Disinformation
"There was a massive story. That quite honestly, we should have covered yesterday. And we're going to lead with it. It is a story that should be dominating the entire news cycle. It's a story that thanks to the intercept, we have learned some incredibly consequential information about the Department of Homeland Security. So let's just kind of first set our terms. What is the Department of Homeland Security? DHS is a branch of government that was founded after 9 11. I believe completely unnecessarily. DHS was duplicative in some ways. TSA is under DHS border patrols under DHS. It was just another branch of government that at first was sold to us as being able to go after the terrorists. But in reality, DHS is actually here to go after us. So all of this new information that we have about Department of Homeland Security again, this should be the number one news story in the country. Not the Pelosi story, not even the polling story. This right here should make the midterms even more important than ever before. So the intercept, which is a rather effective website I have to say. They used a mixture of leaked documents and materials obtained through recent lawsuits found that the Department of Homeland Security is actively engaged in colluding with social media companies to police your speech. So now that the war on terror is over and is basically gone away, DHS doesn't close shop and fire their employees or go focus on something else. No, this is the permanent domestic surveillance industrial complex. You see, DHS has now pivoted to a new self appointed mission. Congress never gave them this mission. We never voted on it. This is the fourth branch of government just gone awry. Their self appointed mission of fighting toxic narratives online, assisted by the FBI. Now, the two have been holding by weekly meetings without any knowledge from Congress or other people, which makes really makes you wonder what is Congress doing all day long with media outlets. Since the 2020 election, that's right. The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security have been actively holding meetings with media companies.
Karoline Leavitt: Very Appreciative of Endorsements Including Trump
"Won a huge, huge victory in the Republican primary winning 34.4% of the vote. Your nearest competitor 25.2%, you have earned endorsements from a number of big names in Congress including congressman Jim Jordan, who's about to be on the program a little bit later today and also senator Ted Cruz, and the big kahuna himself, former president Trump, how big was that endorsement for you? Well, I'm pleased to have that endorsement. I'm pleased to have the support of the wonderful leaders that you just mentioned and we are one unified Republican Party now heading into this November 8th general election. I'm really humbled by the outpouring of support I've received from the party, but more importantly from voters, not just in New Hampshire, but across the country. We have a grassroots war as they've raised more than $3 million since launching this effort and it's all come from a great people across my state and across every state that recognize we need change. So we are welcoming everyone on board. It's proud to have worked in president Trump's White House. We have a lot of forever trumpers on our team, but they surprise you. We got them never trumpers on our team as well. That's what this is at stake in this election. Dire consequences over the past few years are really driving people to our movement and I know we're going to win and we're going to see a massive tidal wave. A red tidal wave take over this country on the November 8th.
Senator Ted Cruz Braves 'The View' With His New Book
"Back, America. If you have seen a clip of yesterday's interview with Ted Cruz on the view about his brand new book, justice corrupted, then you will know that justice corrupted God help by that book a lot, even though every host on the view was hostile to senator Cruz, he joins me now. Good morning, senator, welcome back to the yu yu at show. Good morning, great to be with you. You know, you flunked the lunch law yesterday. The rule of lunch is you've got to say the title of the book 7 times in any media segment. So you got to say justice corrupted like, but I don't think they let you talk. I mean, what was that all about? Look, it was certainly going into the lion's den, but you know, I think there's also value. I think as conservatives, we spend too much time preaching to the choir. I think the choir needs love, but I think we need to spend a lot more time talking to young people talking to Hispanics, talking to African Americans, talking to suburban moms, all of whom are paying the price for the disastrous path we're on. And so I went on the view. Not to convince the host. I don't think they're convincing, but to try to convince the folks who are watching and to have them understand a different perspective, which this book, justice corrupted justice corrupted. That's two of my 7. I got 5 to go. Is all about how Barack Obama and subsequently Joe Biden have turned the Department of Justice and the FBI and the IRS and the federal government in the political weapons to attack their enemies. And that's dangerous for anyone who cares about the rule of law. If anyone cares about individual liberty, having the machinery of government turned into a political weapon results in a really dangerous outcome and I hope at least some of the folks watching the show heard that. Maybe for the first time yesterday. Well,
Climate Change Protesters Interrupt Ted Cruz Appearance on 'The View'
"There is chaos going on over the view right now. The squawking magpies. I want to play some audio here. Senator Ted Cruz is on the program and he is going at it.

Explained in the United States inflation has one cause in one cause. Inflation in the United States has one cause and one cause of it. And that is when the federal government spends too much money. Okay. We have seen trillions and trillions of dollars spent by Joe Biden and the Democrats. Just last year, last year the federal government took in 4 trillion dollars in tax revenues. Most flooding in history we've ever taken in. The problem is we spent nearly $7 trillion and that's what we do cover climate change. Ladies, ladies, excuse us. Let us do our job. Let us do our job. We here what you have to say but you got to go. You're working protesting you. Let us do our job. I couldn't even hear what they were protesting. Thank you. All that. Testosterone. Whoo. Mercy.

Sen. Ted Cruz: The American People Don't Want 87,000 New IRS Agents
"Here's senator Ted Cruz over the weekend. Madam president, there are a lot of bad things in this bill, but fewer worse than the proposal by Democrats in this bill to double the size of the IRS and create 87,000 new IRS agents. I guarantee you citizens and every one of our states, if you ask them, what do they want? They don't want 87,000 new IRS agents. And they're not being created to audit billionaires or giant corporations. They're being created to audit you. The House ways and means committee, the minorities put out an estimate that under this bill, there will be 1.2 million new audits per year with over 700,000 of those new audits falling on taxpayers making $75,000 or less. I believe personally we should abolish the IRS, but at a minimum we shouldn't make the IRS larger than The Pentagon, the State Department, the FBI, and the border patrol all combined. That's what the Democrats are proposing here. It is a terrible idea. If you don't want 87,000 new IRS agents, vote yes. Good for you. Senator Cruz. Unfortunately, elections have consequences. And the Republicans, they just didn't have the votes. They don't have the votes in the House of Representatives. So we're about to get 87,000 more IRS agents, and they're coming after all of us. That's who they're coming after. They're coming after you conservatives. They're coming after you, Christians. That's what's going to happen. Oh,
Andy Ogles: Earning the Edorsement of Trace Adkins
"You've been endorsed by the freedom caucus. I know that Jim Jordan, Scott Perry, who's the chairman of the freedom caucus, Mark Meadows, who helped found it, who was Donald Trump's chief of staff. They've all weighed in already. They're all already helping. You've also been endorsed, I think in one of the, one of the cooler endorsement trace Atkins who doesn't get involved politically a lot, but he stepped up. How did you get trace involved? Well, you know, and we also can't leave out senator Ted Cruz. I mean, here at the end, when we felt that the race might be tightening a little bit, he without hesitation jumped in. He said, look, I need a fighter. We need more fighters like you up here in Congress and it would be an honor to endorse you. And so, but trace Atkins really goes back to COVID. You know, I refuse to comply with the mandates. I refuse to shut my community down. You know, the way I looked at it is if you're a single mom with two kids, your job was essential. If you're a small business owner, you're leasing your savings, your lives on the line, your business is essential and how dare the government. How dare the government tell you that you need to shut down. And so I refuse to comply with any of that nonsense. And because of that, trace had reached out just as a thank you gesture to say, hey, you want to go have dinner. And we started connecting and we had a concert. That first year of COVID, on the square, had over 35,000 people there. Because for me, it was about finding a solution. Look, COVID is real. I had a good friend that died from it, but I was unwilling to just cower and hide under my desk. We had to find a way through it. And that was by trusting people to make good decisions for themselves and not relying on the government to run our lives. Well,
Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert on Her New Book 'My American Life'
"We're at the rumble booth at turning point USA's student action summit. Congresswoman Lauren boebert has my American life here. So you say congresswoman. And it is your book, my American life, pick out a copy today, and support by senator Ted Cruz. Tell us about your book. Yeah, so this is my story. This is about my life growing up. There was a lot of hardships, but I didn't allow that to build a victim mentality for myself. When times got tough, I got tougher. And so this really is my journey from coming from a Democrat household where my mom believed those lies that put us in poverty and kept us there, put us in bread lines waiting for government cheese. And also the abuse that I experienced from adults in my family, abusing drugs and alcohol and even my mom, abusing my mom physically. And throughout all of that, I still developed conservative values. I saw that I could do a better job taking care of myself than government did. I didn't need to be a victim. I was created to be an overcomer. As we all are, I learned my identity through my relationship with Jesus, found who I am and what scripture says about me, the promises that God said about me. And this journey just shows everyone that you were not limited by your past. You're not limited by your mistakes or your upgrading upbringing. And here in America, you truly can live the American Dream. So this is my American life.

They were sacking the capital. Yes, a mob reached the capital building of what NPR is calling an insurrection by pro Trump extremists and Fox News is calling a self guided tour of the Senate chambers. Now it all look pretty scary. But don't worry. The National Guard was on standby, ready to act. If any one of those people kneeled during the national anthem, E was mightily concerned about the fashions on display from the people trying to do the coup. It looked like farm and fleet goes to burning man. It was really you know, I was looking at it, and I love how the capitalists of open rights like it's the People's house, and that's why it was easy to get in. But I have to say there's a castle on the island that that I'm from in Cove, and it has like little slits at the top of it to pour hot boy light of it has it has what's called a murder hole? Yes, on and it works. You know, it's worked for 2000 years. No to keep out the marauders, and they're terrible fashions. Did you ever have to? As you were growing up in this island? Serve in the castle to defend from marauders? Or does that only happened once you move to America? Yeah, It's funny, isn't it? A lot of people are like this is not America I'm like, but I've only ever seen this in America. But on. I should also say that, like the castle in Cole's now they just project the big Santa falls onto it at Christmas time. It's not the murder hole is no longer in use may well, not yet. Now we should say that the people who tried to overthrow democracy did not, at least for the moment when they did not stop the certification of Joe Biden's victory. There's the Senate reconvene later in the trash capital, and Mitch McConnell gave up heartfelt speech about democracy after which he had to give the heart back to the cadaver. He stole it from.

People hating Ted Cruz even more if you don't. Well, it's so hard to look at Ted Cruz sometimes because he looks like his own, madam. Two Sods statue is melting, you know, like, Look, it looks like you just he's wearing a mask of his own skin. It's so creep, huh? After all of this, the president was finally banned from Twitter and Facebook for promoting sedition. So he was reduced to setting national policy by doing 32nd dance videos on TIC Tac. I was so concerned about what platform he was going to move to Guess he got blocked from all of them. Except for Pinterest, and I was like, Oh, no. Vengeance is so cute. And now he's just gonna be like quilting Confederate flag together. You don't want to see his dream board. I sure? Yeah, Yeah. All right, Gabriel, Here is your next quote. I love puppies.

This was good news for Democrats that got overshadowed by the bad news for the country Trump Republicans to the very bitter end.

The session was adjourned for an hour so that both the House and the Senate could move to their respective chambers and then debate the issue. Senator Ted Cruz in the Senate began with a five minute statement. With a completely reasonable and I believe Josh Holly also gave his remarks. I haven't seen his remarks yet will bring those to you, though it as the afternoon develops, and they asked for a simple thing. They said. Listen, what is the rush here? We want 10 days. Have one full, honest. Observation of this process of what happened in these states. It hasn't been done yet. All these people were saying, you know that they made the argument. Give us a 10 Day audit of this thing, Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma began his remarks and in the middle of it, it was interrupted because on Capitol the Capitol steps, the Front end of the protest mark that had made its way up to the Capitol steps had tangled with Capitol police pushed their way through push their way into the building and and had Basically breach security in the capital building. They evacuated the building. They've put both chambers into recess. They suspended the electoral college tabulation. Every member of Congress and every member of the Senate, every member on the president. United States is calling for this to stop. They're calling for an end to this. The president's taken to Twitter twice now to express those concerns. I think the president should actually get on television. Um And and call for this to end right now stop doing this in my name. Stop doing this in this in the name of this cause that's the president has said on Twitter. He should say it on television as well. On been the meantime, we're seeing this unprecedented moment where the business and I do hate it when people say I'm president, But this is pretty unprecedented where the business of Congress of the United States federal government have now been suspended because of a breach of security.

"Lower Now by 3.6% again, recapping Equities lower a Monday sell off back to work sell off with the S and P down 66 a drop right now of 1.8% balance of power continues. And once again here's your host David Western. Thank you so much Charlie Palate. So Wednesday, The Congress meets in the joint session to record the electoral college votes and formally designate the next president of states. But the Constitution provides a process by which senators and congressmen can object to the tallies from individual to individual states. And it doesn't Republican senators and over 140 Republican congressman have said they will do just that. This is how Senator Ted Cruz explains it. We've seen in the last two months, unprecedented allegations of voter fraud and and and that's produced a deep, deep distrust of our democratic process across the country. I think we in Congress have an obligation to do something about that to take us through this process. Welcome now former Democratic senator from Montana and former U S Ambassador to China Max Baucus. So, Mr Ambassador, Thank you so much for joining us. This is not the first time there's been a challenge like this. It happened after the 68 presidential election and haven't even after 2004 presidential election. Is this the system working the way it should? Well, I think in the end, it will work in the end of Joe Biden will be the next president. I think all those senators who were potentially going to contest the Results on Wednesday. No Joe Biden's gonna be president. In fact, In fact, I think they'd be very irresponsible to try to have it both ways because they know by their actions and Delaying They never got result, but they're also by the actions of playing to their base is very political. Many of the water run for president 2024. But if there's any chance that their actions with upset the elections, they would not be taking these actions because they don't want election upset because that would cause tremendous consternation the political process and answer your question, David So it will work process will work so long. This result is what it should be. Don't forget 206 left. Vulture for job by only 2 32 Afraid, trump. So it's the end in the end, middle of work. It's which seems to put everyone believes it will work on in addition to the electro ball vote count. You also have a remarkable number of judges and courts there, reviewed this and have found no evidence of voter fraud. And I'm struck by Senator Cruz is remarks. If you really parse them. What he says, is we've seen in the last two months unprecedented allegations of voter fraud. We don't hear much from the White House about actual proof of voter fraud. Lisa I have not heard that. About that's very true intact. I had the same reaction when I heard of Senator Cruz's statements. They all say allegations even around Montana. Who's gonna vote to contest Uses the word allegation. None of Any proof? I didn't say they have evidence. As you said off the course where this has been contested and found the rabbit is strange. Oh bar while people have found a voter fraud, there's no fraud in this. The suggestion of a commission I think is just bogus and me. It's a smokescreen. It's a red herring. It just talked, and basically they want to slow things down and play to the base because they want to get re elected or run for president s O people run for office and they do various things and savory things running for office. But also there's the business of the country that has to get done here. What might this portend for the Senate in its ability to operate? I mean, we just heard a report that now Mike Lee, a conservative publican actually led the defense and the impeachment for President. Trump says he doesn't think this is the way to go. There's divisions even within the more right part of the Republican Party. There is, uh, unfortunately, I think is a deeper Drift in the country. People are falling into their own little silos. They don't really care much about facts, and then it's also reflected in the Senate. It's been it's reflected. I think pretty much nationwide is a big problem. And frankly, I think that it's major. Challenge that the press select Joe Biden must face when he is inaugurated on January 20th how to get bring the country together, really, and the way he's gonna have to do that is to show That he the president and both parties we're gonna have to show for it is they do in fact, listen to they are listening to a lot of people in the hinterland. The country who feel with If the elites and Washington aren't listening to them, And I think that that perception that the elites aren't listening to borders is with causing a lot of this division. We've had several people come to the office of presidency, saying We want to bring things together. Certainly, President Barack Obama said that he wanted to that if we go back to President George W. Bush and I remember his first inauguration address One thing's he committed himself to was really overcoming partisanship so people have tried is that the people weren't the right people to get it done, Or is there more something more fundamental in the country? I think that a lot of it is that is caused by the media. Some of it is a cable news. Some of it is social media, the Internet. Um people of shorter attention stands these days and immediate and then bad news has reported seeing currency travels faster than the good news and unfortunately that I think is caused people just It's done. Think enough. That is Listen enough, have their minds open enough. They're big question. How do you solve it? And I think that one way is for the president. The new president. Really show that he is listening. He may have to get all get around the country does have a lot of time meetings. This show we really is listening. I just talked to people that listening, Joseph talker just could have to listen. Indeed it does. Listen, and people see that he's listening and really under 60 Boy. Maybe this guy really does care about then maybe something might happen. What do you make of the Georgia to run offs that we're going to have tomorrow? Now? I mean, at the beginning was thought that it was a real long shot for both Democrats to win. But now people think maybe those odds are narrowing. Uh, I don't know it zipped gossip. Um, it's Democrats are really motivated. Really organized. Think about $400 million is being spent in Georgia. Uh, A lot of the polls have not been very accurate in recent elections. Who knows? We'll know. Hopefully Tuan, Um sometime Tuesday, United maybe early Wednesday morning. Boy. I hope that's right. People think might take a lot longer than that. It's really such a go ahead. Like the other one the way long time e don't like saying, Okay, Thank you so much as always such a treat to talk with you. That's Ambassador Max Baucus coming up today marks the first business day since United Kingdom left the European Union. We go over what's happened so far, and what we can expect with Matias Metis.
