What's Happening in Arizona Is an Abject Disgrace to the Modern World
"What's happening in Arizona is an abject disgrace to the modern world. And this is not the first time this has happened. This is the fourth election cycle this has happened in Arizona. And every time we try to challenge the people in Arizona to fix this, Stephen richer, the state House, the state Senate, we get condescendingly talked to as if, oh, you don't know what you're talking about. We're not going to put up with this anymore. We are now 36 hours, plus of polls closing. We are now in the 38th hour, and there are still a 125 to a 175,000 ballots still outstanding in Maricopa County. I believe one of the reasons is because the establishment in Arizona wants to try to rob every day they can. From Kerry Lake to give her the victory speech, transfer her entire operation to a general election. Now we are about 93 92 days away from the midterm elections. You want to hear something even crazier? We are 60 days away from early voting. 60 days away. In a governor's race, that could be anywhere between a 75 to $100 million governor's race, or a Senate race that will be a 150 to a 175 million every day literally costs 2 millions of dollars. And so if you are delaying this unnecessarily of which, there is no excuse whatsoever. With the Maricopa County supervisors and Steven richer and all these people in Maricopa County are doing, you are literally able to give an in kind donation to Katie Hobbs.

The House Has the Power of the Purse
"That Ford would talk about this in this term. And Ford talking about this in this term that he would believe in an incited so that the house has the power of the purse. While I was in the United States House representatives is always amazing to me how so many of my colleagues would want to talk about they didn't like this. They didn't like that. Whether it be funding for war or in the Middle East or whether it was for social programs or for expanding social programs that members of Congress seemed to forget that it was it was us who actually funded these programs. It actually started in the house. If you want to shut down and I'll just use the example here. If you wanted to shut down the involvement of the United States in a foreign conflict, then you know how you do it, you shut the money off. Now, members of college might not want to do that because then the consequences of that decision follow entirely upon the House and the Senate if they were to pass this to go to the president and then the president be forced to sign it or not sign it. This is the understanding of these roles. Now, again, you may be saying, well, if the president vetoes it and what's the issue? Well, if you've not watched lately, the House and the Senate, especially if they're together on a funding issues, can draw the government basically to a close. I mean, if something is so important that you feel like that it should not be happening is a member of the House of Representatives in particular where all funding measures start, you start with the power of the purse. I don't care where you are, what if you're in a family or in a government during a business, it all comes down to what you can afford, what you can't afford and who's allocates the money.
Getting to Know Gerald Ford, the 38th President of the United States
"Let's dig in. This was a speech that was given by Gerald Ford president of the United States in 1977. It was January. It was his State of the Union, and I think he went ahead and took it to the State of the Union because Gerald Ford has an interesting perspective of being the only person ever to serve as president. And vice president, both, and never be elected to those offices. He was a member of the House of Representatives when Spiro Agnew resigned from the vice president. He was appointed by Richard Nixon to become vice president after Richard Nixon resigned. He taking again through the Twenty-fifth Amendment became president of the United States. So he serves as the only person to have ever served as president of this country without actually being elected. We've had some who have ascended to those roles, but if they actually served, if they serve later, they were actually president, but this was one in which he was actually appointed to the vice president's role, not elected to that vice president's role. So in moving up, it makes it makes an interesting anomaly in history. But it also sort of fits one Gerald Ford. If you look into his background, you look into where he came from. He's a midwesterner, raised in mission, Grand Rapids, went to school at the University of Michigan, played football there was a star football player. In fact, one two national titles there undefeated football teams at the University of Michigan after that went to Yale law school and then served in the United States Navy during World War II came out and began his service in the United States House where he served over 25 years before he was picked to be vice president and president.
Democrats Abuse the 1965 Civil Rights Act to Eliminate Republican Seats
"And I've also been talking about how the Democrat party using their allies at the department of injustice and the uncivil rights division Are abusing the 1965 Civil Rights Act in 1965 Civil Rights Act AK the Voting Rights Act Isn't about electing more Democrats It's about ensuring that people have a right to vote and that the right to vote isn't diminished By gerrymandering it was at least initially thought in southern states particularly But that's not what's happening They're using the 1965 Civil Rights Act To eliminate Republican seats and create more subtly Democrat seats In Maryland they have one Republican seat left the redistricting would eliminate that And the overwhelming Democrat House and Senate Maryland which impart is overwhelmingly Democrat not just because there's more Democrats here but because they were gerrymandered their own seats They're now gerrymandering the seats in Pennsylvania Why to ensure that the Democrats take over the state House in Pennsylvania See they never stop The New York they will wipe out all but three or four Republican states Even though New York is hemorrhaging population it's still a huge state with a huge population base Do you really think there should only be three or four Republican seats in the entire state of New York
Which States Look Good for Republicans in 2022?
"Now governor two points political points to close out here. First of all, you've got to tell whoever you're executive director is the poorer person has scheduled a meeting in Washington, D.C. in January. You're going to get a foot of snow today. So I go talk to your executive director and say, you know, you got to get more practical. We really should be out in the west in January, not in the beltway. I don't know who you've got in that job, but really, you've got to talk to them about that. But number two, which states look good for Republican pickups this fall. In the governor House in the state houses. So in terms of the Republican governors association and those races, we always protect our incumbents first, we keep our red states red and Hugh never has there been a greater contrast between Republican leadership and Democrat leadership. So there's a lot of states that are on the map to turn them over. So we're very much on office. You can look at states like Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Kansas, New Mexico, and Nevada, are all on our target list. So we've got a lot of supporters in town for this meeting. People are very excited. They think that people like Gretchen Whitmer have earned the right to be removed from office because of her bad policies during the COVID era and we intend to maximize that.

"state house" Discussed on The Doug Collins Podcast
"Think about this. The Democrats have The White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. They have it all. They can push things through they can do whatever they want. They have not been able to get their big ticket items across the finish line. And historians, media press, they're saying, this is the most disappointing administration in recent history. For every scare tactic that they have employed, the American people have said, no. And they are resoundingly rejecting the socialist move that this administration is trying to take us down. So while it's it seems overwhelming, these little baby steps that we're taking in pushing back in the American people getting up and mom's going to the school board meetings and all these things, this is all building up to a movement, like I say, that is going to give us the greatest American renaissance that we have ever seen. And it's because we needed to course correct, but we needed to see the darkness in order to appreciate the good in our country. And so it's coming. That American awakening is coming. Wow, this is I think that's the optimism we need to have and your vision and leadership not only from your role in Congress, but also just the voice that you're giving is a fresh new voice. It's being heard and I think that's the overall emphasis and going back to something we talked about a while back in his podcast and that was attaching people to the policies and making sure that we're connecting with people and remembering at the end of the day, it's always about the people we serve. It's not about the position we have as the people that we serve in going for that. It's no wonder if you've listened to this podcast today. It's no wonder why so many leaders in Washington say say this congresswoman is not just a future leader but a current leader. And I'm privileged to call her a friend. Someone who I've known for many years now watched her grow through her chief of staff role through now as a member of Congress can not be more proud and I know Ted and I both looking at it now are just amazed at not amazing the sense we didn't think you would, but amazing how you've done it. And we're proud of you. In that regard. And I think conservatives you're providing a voice that's not Manhattan a while. So we're looking forward to having you back again. There's gonna be a lot, especially as the year progresses. But I wanted people to get to know you from homeless to the house. It's pretty cool. We understand it because you're taking it not from a victim standpoint, but one who actually overcame and provided that. So Kat great to be with you today. I know you got a busy rest of the day, you got things going on, but I'm glad we spent some time together, looking forward to the people of the Collins podcast, knowing who you are because you're a name to remember. Thank you, Doug, and it's so good to see you. As always, looking forward to the next time. Sounds great. Folks, I don't know about you, but I enjoy a good night's sleep. And there's times I don't get it, but typically when I do have that chance, I'm back at home, I'm not traveling. The one thing that I miss when I'm on the road is a good pillow. And I'm gonna tell you right now, the folks at my pillow are the folks who have designed a pill that actually fits my knees. I love to put a pillow where I want to sleep, get it under my head, get it perfect and it stays there. And my pillow folks, you can't get it. Right now, they're offering some of the lowest process ever. And if you use code word Collins, promo code Collins, INS. I mean, we're talking about a regular my pill a 69 98 for only 1998. Queen saw 79 98 for 24 98 or a king size 89 98 for only 29 98. That's promo code Collins. But that's not just pillows. They've got the Giza dream bedsheets. They got bathrobes. They got the my slippers. By the way, I'm not sure I can get the moss slippers off miss Lisa. The other night we were getting ready to go somewhere. She addressed up, had a beautiful dress on. I look now. She still had her mouse slippers on. And then she said, oh, gotta go back and change shoes. They're that comfortable folks. You want to have them. Again, use promo code Colin C O L L and S and you can get their best price on anything that they have.

"state house" Discussed on The Doug Collins Podcast
"Long. And I actually remember you meet Ted and several members. We were in a room when back in 2013, when the discussion came up of, do we want to touch mandatory spending? And across the room, there was just shutters and there was the conversation. I've got a primary. Oh, I've got this going on. No one wanted to touch it with a ten foot pole. So we just talk about it while it continues to go broke. At some point, somebody needs to stand up and say, I don't give a damn if I lose reelection. We need to do this because it's the right thing to do. And I don't see enough of that yet. And I think it's because it's like, oh well, strategically, we need to win this election and then we're going to get the presidency and then we got this. And that's a second term of the presidential career that we need to do. I think there's too much overthinking when it comes to the big things that we know we have to handle. It's the kick the can down the road mentality that is really killing Republicans, whereas you have and I'll use a Ted yoho analogy and it's a great one. Ted always talked about how the Democrats would have a wheelbarrow of ideas and their agenda. And they would march collectively march behind it. They pushed that wheelbarrow forward. They get out of power. They cover up the wheelbarrow of ideas with a tarp and it just sits there until they get back into power. They come right back to it. They start moving down the line with it. The problem I think with Republicans and how we can why we struggle with getting together collectively is we are fundamentally at our core about the individual. So it's like hurting cats. You know, we all have our own opinions and ideas and it's harder to get an independent individual and 218 of us together and pushing behind one idea. That's really hard to do. And whereas the Democrats, it's groupthink. It's one idea you're going to get behind it. You're going to do it otherwise, there will be consequences. Exactly. I think that's one of the things that individualism has got to be tempered with the understanding that we are as a country or individuals who strengthen the whole out of many we have one country and I think that's the interesting thing we have. As we get ready and I want to give you an opportunity here to talk about because you've been you provide a different perspective if you provide a generational voice. If you're looking at Congress right now and you're serving and you're looking head to the next year, you're looking past the elections and what you just talked about. What would you tell a generation that I'm becoming more concerned is been marginalized, feel like they don't have a voice or just the average voter who could be 70 years old who feels like that, I don't have a place anymore. What's some good that you believe that we can accomplish as conservatives, your generation, you're coming up, what are you hoping to see in the next couple of years that Congress can affect? So one, I mean, when you're in you know this is well if I do that, especially Washington, it's a majority run institutional houses. So for me in the next 12 months, it's stopped Nancy Pelosi at all costs. That is my goal. Expose the hypocrisy, stop her, make it as difficult as possible for her to pass anything. And in the process of really exposing what they're trying to do. That's when I think people are starting to wake up and say, I have to do something, but people don't know what to do. I tell people all the time, call your member of Congress. Call call their Washington D.C. office and I do Facebook lives a lot and I say here's a number called the capital switchboard shut it down. And in a large part because of many people doing that, the capital switchboard has been raining off the hook during the BBB process. And it caused Nancy Pelosi, a 9 week delay in passing it out of the house. You and me, we know Nancy Pelosi does not like to be denied and she does not like to be delayed. And so the fact that the American people were able to put so much pressure on their members of Congress and say, no, there was just really this awakening that happened on Capitol Hill. That I think is a sign that the people have more power than they realize. And my goal is really to educate people on one how Washington works and two how they can affect change from their living room. It's not enough just to go and vote. And every election, you need to start voting with your dollars. Are you are you spending your money at places that support liberal policies? Are you paying attention to what's happening at your school board as well as what your senator is doing? My goal is to really teach people how to be engaged in a way that is meaningful, but also effective. And that I think is part of my job here for the next two, four, 6, 7, whatever years of teaching people how they can move the needle because collectively the people have more power than we realize and I tell I say this all the time. The scariest thing for career politician is an engaged informed constituent. That to them, if they are truly in it for all the wrong reasons, that is a very, very terrifying thing. And so educating people, that is how we're going to change things and to someone who feels like they're maybe it's too far gone or they're disenfranchised or they're disheartened..
"state house" Discussed on The Doug Collins Podcast
"Do you see that as a problem with some of your colleagues? I see that as a major problem with the conference. We have historically been a subpar at telling our story. I remember vividly back in the yoho days. I think it was 2013, 2014. We had a conversation. I said, why in the heck are we not sharing the life stories and experiences of every single one of our members? Because if people knew what some of our members had gone through, they would be more compelled to say, I relate to that guy, or I relate to that gal. And I've lived that life. And I'm going to keep following them and see what happens in their career. And we have some really, really, really struggled for that emotional connection. And I say it all the time. When people go into the voting booth, they're not sitting there crunching numbers. My tax bill is going to be XYZ if I vote for this person. No. People go into the loading booth and they say, you know, I like that guy. I feel like he's someone I could sit down and have a beer with or she's someone who I feel like she'd have my back. They don't ever go in with a truly thoughtful sound statistically backed data data researched rationale for going into voting for a candidate. And I look at the Obama and the Romney race. They felt that Obama was warm that he was their type of person who could really look out for them would have their back and Romney was a number cruncher. It was stats. It was figures. It was facts, and it was cold. And so we have got to tap into that emotional connection with voters. And that's something we've really struggled with. I think my value add coming in as the youngest Republican woman in the country is teaching my colleagues how to communicate with the now largest voting block in America and that's millennials and the Gen Z we are naturally curious. We are we have been born cynics. And we want to know why. And a lot of the why stems from our personal story. So my goal has been to be really a disciplined messenger of why it is so important that we protect free of the liberty and why it's important that government stay out of your life. And telling the stories of how government has really impacted my life has been a real priority because I tell people all the time, you don't think government can change your life here my story. And then also on the flip side of how government has really been detrimental to me. I talk about how a free constitutional republic has afforded me the opportunity to go from homeless to the house in less than a decade. You can only do that when you have a government that is focused on the individual on the individual rights adhering to the constitution. And people are like, well, if she can do it, I can do it. And that's the message we need to be sending is really pushing for equal opportunity not equal outcome..

"It is. Well, look, it's an interesting story here and it's not the story that the liberal side wants to hear because if you're looking for the background and looking at from where you came from and in this part, you know, you're not the narrative of the conservative that liberals are portraying right now. And I think that, but you bring that understanding that government was actually failing your family is an interesting story that really the media doesn't want to portray right now. Absolutely. You know, I mean, I think and we were having some pretty big battles in 2021 about big government programs and these social justice programs. And I finally had a moment on the House floor where I turned and looked to our democratic colleagues. And I said, you know, had these programs been in place when I was homeless and fighting to get out of the trenches. I would have never survived because these programs are traps. They are traps to keep you poor and in poverty and impoverished and really tied to this welfare handout system. And that's why I feel very fortunate that I was able to pull myself up by my bootstraps, even though AOC says that's not possible. We know that it is. And again, my family, my mom, she's a very proud woman, and she wasn't accepting handouts. That was not something that she was comfortable doing. And I'm not saying that we don't need those safety social nets. That's what they're there for. But they're not a way of life and they certainly should never be generational. And I saw them as a means to continue to entrap me and make me dependent on government. And you and I both know that when you are dependent on an entity for your food for your housing for your school for paying your electric bill, you're never going to vote against that. You're never going to say, hey, I'm going to make it so I have less government in my life. And that's really what we're up against. Yeah. Well, and interesting points here. I mean, you just made the point. I mean, frankly, if you look at AOC's background, she has no reference to discuss that. You have a reference of being homeless. You have a reference of living in a standard motel. You have a reference of actually working. And in her background, is that's not there. As much as she's claimed as the bartender from Brooklyn, that's not her background. And to portray it as anything else is really a misnomer. Now there's plenty on the Democrats side who have stories like that and they chose government over independent. And I get that. When you're seeing this, it's your age because you're one of the youngest the youngest members in Congress, one of the youngest members. Do they look at that insight, especially from the media perspective and I've seen some stories written. They don't really believe that you're a conservative. It makes them scratch their head because you're not the narrative that they have been portraying out there. Yeah, you know, I think that the left wants to portray that Republicans are a bunch of old white men that have gobs of money sitting in a room somewhere, you know, I think of, I think of the mister monopoly image of what the left wants to portray us all as. But in truth, we represent America. We are veterans. We are business owners. We are people who grew up in a variety of different homes and backgrounds and we have colleagues on the Republican side that were raised by their grandparents because their parents weren't in a bad way. And they couldn't do it. We have a more representative conference that is reflective of America and what America looks like today. Then I believe what the left has. And I think that the left has a reputation of really accusing and pointing at and saying, oh, you guys are this. When in reality, they are what they accuse us of and what we accuse us of being. And so when I think about the future of conservatism and Republican Party, I think you're going to see a lot more people like me who came from working class backgrounds who came from single parent households who are trying to lead by example of saying, hey, I grew up in that. I don't want to go back to that. And really fight for and fight for the family structure. I think that we have the most dynamic diverse reflective of America today conference in history. And I think that's really important because even when you say, oh, well, but you know, and I don't know the numbers of percentages of what our conference is male versus female. And the demographics of specifically the white male. You talk to some of our colleagues, even you, Doug, you have an incredible story. And the things that you have done in service to our country. I mean, these are the things that no one wants to talk about because it goes against the narrative. They think that we all are just have a silver spoon in our mouth and came from daddy warbucks or something. Yeah, look, I'm a trooper's kid from north order. Okay, my dad is a door to stay true. My mom worked with senior dose. I was not like you, I was active, but not in a sense of one that would be destined for congressional policies. Mister monopoly kind of thing. One of the interesting things that I've seen in California is this. I get this and I was there for 8 years working with this conference and as seeing us grow back in the majority lost the majority. The one thing though that I have seen, and I've noticed that you're trying to work on it, but you just brought it up. We have a very diverse caucus. We have a very young caucus. We have a very challenging arena when you look at the different backgrounds of our members. But you don't want the things that I'm seeing is that our side, we don't do a good job telling our story. Yes. How can we get better at that? Because I know some of it is changing, but we've got to get to the point where people actually understand this, and the only way we can do it is have a compelling story that attaches to these policies to actual people..

"The podcast today. Yeah, no, well, and that's really kind of them to mention me. We'll see how things go, but no, I think coming into this Congress, the 117th, I brought a little bit of a different perspective. I am certainly not your traditional candidate or congresswoman. I grew up daughter of a single mom and I grew up on a small cattle ranch and my family, we were commercial sandblasters. That's not exactly the sexiest industry in the world. And when you grow up on a job sites and you're in the world of construction, politics really isn't front of mine, except for when it's interfering in your life. So I grew up in a household of Democrats and really I think through that experience of and we weren't politically active or anything. My mom, she voted, and then when I registered to vote, I actually registered as an independent because I had always been raised. You vote for the person, not the party. And growing up on all these job sites in this industry, we saw department of environmental protection. We saw the ocean inspectors. We saw the Department of Labor. And I started out, I took my first steps on the job site. And so I was naturally being conditioned to really despise government and government interference because every time I saw one of these bureaucrats show up at our business, it was never good. And it was never helpful. And so I grew up with that background of really just kind of naturally being adverse to big government, but it really didn't kind of come full circle until I was in my final year of college. I was the first in my family to go to college. And I mean, you want to talk about a working class background. It was very working class. And we found out that in April of 2011, we were being evicted from our home. And we really couldn't wrap our head around it because we hadn't done anything wrong. We had been told all along that we were doing everything right and everything was going to be fine. Of course, everybody remembers the O 8 crash and how the economy and everything tanked. There had been unbeknownst to me and my family and millions of other Americans, there had been a government program instituted under the Obama administration. It was called hemp. And essentially what it did was it incentivized big banks to push people out of their homes and they got a tax credit up front for every loan that quote unquote couldn't be saved. While it doesn't take a genius to figure out that if you're incentivizing people to push people out of their homes and your rewarding them for that, they're going to do it. So we ended up seeing not just my family losing everything, but about 7 million Americans lost their homes. And I found myself graduating from college and homeless. And really, really angry. Really angry at a system that had failed. And my mom, she was pretty depressed and we moved into an extended stay motel in a pretty bad part of Denver. And that's when I really made the decision that you know what damn it, I'm going to get involved. I have to do something. I don't know what it is. You know, I wasn't politically involved, but I didn't know what that something looked like, but I just knew that it wasn't right. And I had been on this track to take over the family business. Energy and gas industry had always interested me. And so I was really focused in that way. And politics was not in my future, but I think that was the moment for me that I realized that politics will impact you whether you vote, whether you are engaged, politics impacts you every single day. And so that's when I got the call from a family friend and he said, my uncle is running for Congress in Florida. His name is Ted. I think you would love him. You should drive down there and help out on his campaign. And I showed up on Ted yoho's doorstep at 2 o'clock in the morning with all my fishing gear and every piece of clothing that I owned in my beat up Nissan maxima. And the rest is history..

"Happy tuesday morning and tuesday morning. Of course means it's election day somewhere right. There's a primary election in cuyahoga county ohio. Today there's a special election for a state house seat in iowa. I see you polk county. Let's be honest. The biggest election of the day the one that will directly affect forty million people and perhaps indirectly affect far more. Is the recall election for california governor gavin. Newsom it's a remarkable moment in our nation's history this recalls about catching you while you're sleeping remember. This ballot is a two. the first question is a simple one. Do you think governor gavin. Newsom should be kicked out of his job and if a majority of voters say yes you go to question two which is who besides gavin newsom should take his place then as for. Who's replacing them. I have a thought the end of the day we could be looking at just a governor serving the rest of his term or perhaps one of the most bizarre replacement projects since arnold schwarzenegger was just an actor. Abc's political director. Rick kleinman following this with bated breath so rick know we talked about how california could be his own country. What are the chances that its leader. Gavin newsom actually loses his job today. We'll brightest prospects live a lot better than they did a couple of months ago there was sort of a scare that got shot into the political landscape across california and nationally when a couple of polls came out that suggested that gavin newsom would would have a hard time getting to fifty percent of people saying that he should stay. That's the magic number more than half half the vote for him to stay for him to keep his job. It's different for the replacement candidate but the polls stabilized significantly vocalized with all kinds of energy. That you have here tonight to vote no on this republican recall and i'll tell you democrats in california. They are thrilled with the turnout numbers. They've seen they've seen people showing up about equal to their their share of the population. Which means for a democrat california. You're in pretty good shape so he could take hours beyond tonight or even into the next day or even next week depending on how close it is for all these votes to be counted keeping might every californian got a mail in ballot but gavin. Newsom feels pretty good. And i think that's one reason you saw president biden and a lot of other big guns. Try to make the case for him. Down the stretch

Risks of the vaccine in more vaccine news became the first state to require the vaccines for kobe.

Shame on me fool me for 50 years and you're just a fool. Yeah, well, I look Jane, I think there is a lot of wisdom and what you had to say about the origination and the reason why so many Socialist Democrats are eager to teach critical race theory rather than actual history, because the racist history in this country is The Democrat Party's hands are blood stained with racism, and they want to erase that and we have to wait. We have to get rid of the slave master mentality that black people were going to have to free them from the Democrats again. Indeed, indeed. And you can't do that.

The premise is that America has a history of racial injustice, racism, inequality, slavery, etcetera, which is absolutely incontrovertibly true, but the critical race serious conclusion that we should abandon equal protection under the law. We should abandon free speech. We should abandon the system of capitalism, which I've documented and cited and source. Whether Eddie likes it or not, is something that we should reject and something that we should not be promoting in schools and the India says it In very plain language. They say we need to reject the system. Some of capitalism as a form of oppression. We need even reject and propose centrism the idea that human beings are the most important thing in our lives. The NBA put out that set. By the way, they're trying to hide that statement now. Now that we've actually taking them at their word. The teachers unions around the country, and they call them associations here in Texas. They're trying to hide the fact that they're promoting anti capitalism in our schools. They're trying to hide the fact that there that this idea that human beings are worthy of protection. Their lives are worthy of protection. They don't believe that anymore. In these teachers unions, they don't believe that quit teaching it. Trying to hide what therefore And they're being aided. By the way. This is on M s. N. B s. The morning Brzezinski program.
