Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene removed from House committees
"News. Last night, House Republican leadership met for hours trying to decide what to do about controversial GOP congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. In the end, the deeply divided house voted 230 to 1 99 to strip her of her committee seats over incendiary remarks she made before being elected in November. Before the vote, Congressman Greene spoke to her colleagues saying it all started after President Trump was elected. She certainly supported him. But she didn't like what she heard about Russian collusion. These things bothered me deeply. And I realized just watching CNN or Fox News. I may not find the truth. And so what I did is I Started looking up things on the Internet, asking questions like most people do everyday use Google And I stumbled across something and this is at the end of 2017 called Q it on Well, these posts were mainly about this Russian collusion, information. Ah, lot of it was some of what I would see on the news at night, and I got very interested in it. So I posted about it on Facebook or read about it. I talked about it. Ask questions about it, and then more information came from it. But you see, here's the problem throughout 2018. Because I was upset about things and didn't trust the government. Really? Because the people here weren't doing the things that I thought they should be doing for us. The things that I just told you I cared about And I want, you know, a lot of Americans don't trust our government, and that's sad. The problem with that is, though, is I was allowed to believe things that weren't true, and I would ask questions questions about them and talk about them. And that is absolutely what I regret. Because if it weren't for the face, book post and comments that I liked and 2018, I wouldn't be standing here today and you couldn't point a finger and accuse me of anything wrong. Because I've lived a very good life that I'm proud of. My family's proud of my husband's proud of my Children are proud of And that's what my district elected me for. So in 20 later in 2018. When I started finding Miss information lies things that were not true in these. Q and on post, I stopped believing it. After Congressman Greene spoke Majority leader Steny Hoyer reference the historic nature of this vote. It was pretty historic when you think about what they did last night, where 11 Republicans joined Democrats in voting to kick her off of those committees. I've had the great honor of serving this body for 40 years. And in that time I have never encountered a situation like the one before us. Now we remember has made such vile and hurtful statements engaged in harassment of colleagues. Expressed support. Political violence. To do nothing. Would be an abdication of our moral responsibility to our colleagues to the house to our values to the truth and to our country. I've heard some condemnation from across the aisle of the contents. Representative Green statements. Some have condemned the white supremacist an anti Semitic things, she said, and posted online, some of condemned the falsehood she shared about 9 11. And the horrific school shootings. But I've heard little from Republicans about the horrific statements made by their colleague making threats of violence against Democratic elected officials. And her threatening conduct towards represented Bush and others. Indeed, Mr Speaker, there seems to be much silence when it comes to her incitement of political violence. Short while ago Representive Green came to this Florida defender indefensible conduct. I heard no apology. She claimed that we are here today only because of something she wrote online before she ever ran for Congress. And if one's moral slate is wiped claim when one becomes a candidate for office Regardless, the conduct we are judging today continued to occur even after represented Green became a candidate and even after she was elected, there is no doubt that if somebody came to the Congress, and it said before they came to gun Congress Am for violent revolution against the government of the United States of America, that your party Would say That's not somebody we want to be associated with. That's not what she said. I do not assert that What should we do Less? Then you did for Steve King for far less toxic language. Let us not do nothing. Let us do the right thing. Majority Leader Steny Hoyer last night before that historic vote 6
House Takes Rare Step to Remove Marjorie Taylor Greene
"Tonight have voted to discipline Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene taking away the Georgia Republicans committee assignments due to her ties to Cuban on conspiracy theories. Wt Opie's Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill, the Yays are 230. And the nays are 199 Just 11. Republicans joined Democrats in approving a resolution to pull the Georgia lawmaker from the education and budget committees, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer to do nothing. Would be an abdication of our moral responsibility to our colleagues to the house to our values. But Ohio Republican Jim Jordan suggested that everyone makes mistakes and Democrats better be wary of who could be disciplined in the future. Who is next? Before the vote, Green had gone on the House floor to say she no longer believes in outlandish Cuban on conspiracies. You say school shootings are absolutely real. On Capitol Hill,
House panel weighs resolution to remove Greene from committees
"Snapshot of the divided Republican Party. Just look at what's happening today In the House of Representatives, GOP leaders are weighing fates of two very different members of the party. One is Liz Cheney, the number three Republican in the House who voted last month to impeach then President Donald Trump. The other is freshman Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Trump loyalist known for spouting conspiracy theories and bigoted comments. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez and Claudia House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has supported Chani. But he's also said he has concerns about her impeachment vote. Trump allies like Florida Congressman Matt Gates even went to Wyoming to urge her constituents to vote her out of office. And here's another critic, Ohio representative Jim Jordan. When you're the conference chair, and you're the person who speaks for the conference, and you take a position that 96 to the conference, disagreed with and you do that ahead of time. She didn't She didn't just go voter conscious. On the day of the vote. She spoke ahead of time. 36 hours put out a statement in the sharpest possible terms. That's a concern. So Claudia is Liz Cheney in real danger here that remains to be seen. Today's GOP conference meeting later today on Capitol Hill will be a real signal there on where the party and Cheney go from here. This is all emblematic of this. These widening divisions were seeing in the party right now former President Trump left a vacuum of power as well as a dye identity crisis. For the GOP, a Republican strategist mention to me that with Trump, the populist wing of the party is swallowed up the establishment wing of the party time and time again, and we're seeing that play out in real time right now. This is the Republicans lost the house, the Senate, the White House under his man and under his administration, So the party is in the midst of this civil war If you will, and these members who remain fierce Trump loyalists are targeting Cheney. At one end well establishment Republicans are supporting Cheney at the other. Sure and change. The daughter of a former vice president represents the establishment in many of the populist side would probably mean embodied by Marjorie Taylor, Greene and House Democrats. Claudia want to strip her of her committee assignments, which would be a pretty severe rebuke and reminds me that House Republicans did agree a couple years ago to strip Steve Steve King of his committee assignments after he had publicly questioned why white supremacy is offensive. And then he lost his next primary, and that is out of office now. So is there a parallel here? Yes, In some ways there are a Democratic leadership aide told me this morning that House Majority leader Steny Hoyer told his caucus. That McCarthy needs to repeat the same action he took with King, which is move green off all of her committees, and Hoyer spoke to McCarthy this morning after that phone call with his caucus. Signaling the potential for a deal here between both sides before your said Democrats are moving forward with the resolution to remove green from her committee's This is really rare and even higher, has said this could backfire where the GOP could force their members off panels in the future. That said Democrats are determined where said that he spoke to McCarthy. And there's clear clearly no alternative to holding Ah, floor vote on this resolution to remove grain from her committee assignments. The Rules Committee will meet this afternoon to sort out how that debate will play out and it looks like the House will vote on this resolution tomorrow. Okay, so that's what's going on in the House Real quick Cloudy in the Senate. The impeachment trial starts next week, and Republicans are also gonna have to decide how loyal they're going to be to the former president. So in the moments we have left how many Republicans seem willing to convict at this point We saw five GOP senators break with her colleagues in a vote to say the trial is constitutional. That's a clue to what we could see in terms of the votes to convict Trump. There are some who left the door open that could join that group, but it looks like it will be a minority of Senate GOP members. I see many focusing on the process lend less So the substance that's NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez. Thank you. You're
House Democrats move swiftly to strip Marjorie Taylor Greene of committee assignments
"There are also developments tonight on the effort to oust the cunanan congresswoman marjorie taylor green from her committee posts in the house today.

Washington, DC Statehood Bill Introduced By Senate Democrats
"Now you know this has been on the wish list of democrats for quite some time along with a promoting of puerto rico to statehood as well. Now that's compensation for a different time. But you had senator tom carper. He's democrat out of delaware leading over three dozen of his democrat colleagues to introduce companion bill for washington dc statehood gesture on tuesday. Now remember a similar. Bill passed the house last year. Now will face well pretty much. A democrat controlled senate to determine if dc will become the fifty first state but is that even possible. Well i found this piece. I pulled this back in early january out of the washington post. And it's pretty indepth piece about dc statehood. Bottom line is these. Dc statehood still faces a number of high hurdles not only in the narrowly divided senate but yes in public opinion as well. Think about this. A two thousand nine thousand nine gallup poll found that nearly two-thirds of us opposed dc statehood. So why is in dc already a state. well we need to look at the constitution washington. Dc's founding is enshrined in the constitution which provides that the district not exceeding the constitution. Not exceeding ten miles. Square would become the seat of the government of the united states now for a brief period of time after the city's creation back in seventeen ninety residents -joyed voting rights and were allowed to cast ballots as residents of maryland or virginia but those rights ended shortly after congress moved into town and the new capital in eighteen hundred and pass the district of columbia organic act of eighteen. O one the act stripped dc residents of their rights to vote in all federal elections including for president and gave congress oversight of the city. Have you ever seen a dc washing a plate license plate. You know what it says you know with. The slogan is taxation without representation. Now the district was not afforded presidential electors until the passage of the twenty-third amendment. Back in one thousand. Nine hundred sixty one. Its residents didn't get a non voting delegates in the house until nineteen seventy so begs the question. How can congress change this well. Those opposed to making dc estate have argued that statehood for dc can't happen without a constitutional amendment. They say that the founders intended the entire district to serve as the seat of federal government not as state but legislation put forth by non voting delegate. Eleanor holmes norton every year since nineteen ninety-one would not eliminate the seat of government that the constitution calls for in stead her bill which shrink the national capital to a small complex of federal buildings while allowing the rest of the district to become a state proponents of statehood for their part argue that this plan preserves federal enclave. Whose only requirement is that. It can't exceed ten square miles and escapes the need for a constitutional amendment. Nothing simple as that outstanding questions remain over. What would happen to the three electoral college votes. Currently afforded to the district when it becomes a smaller that role enclave. And some have wondered whether the twenty-third amendment would have to be repealed. So that the few residents of the federal enclave namely we're talking about those residing at sixteen hundred pennsylvania avenue don't retain them so what needs to happen for dc to become state. Well the bill to make these estate obviously has enough supports in the house to pass again and jordi leader steny hoyer pledged to bring it to vote with backing from speaker. Nancy pelosi by your indeed even though the senate is pretty evenly split. Well let's just say it's a tough road to hoe in the senate democrats occupy half the seats in that chambers. Thanks to the victories of ossoff and wore knock In georgia both of whom support would no surprise there. And then you've got vice president. Kamala harris in this fifty fifty split in the senate able to cast the tie breaking boat and she liked biden supports

Yesterday he was at work in maryland. Which of course is just outside of washington. Dc right in the middle of that meeting with our security team. I got a phone call from house. Majority leader steny hoyer. Who was calling me saying that. He and speaker. Pelosi and senator schumer. We're all together in an undisclosed bunker. They've been Spirited off to some undisclosed location that the us capitol. police was overwhelmed that there was no federal law enforcement. Presence and the leader of leaders of congress were pleading with me as the governor of maryland for assistance from maryland national guard and state police. I informed speaker. Hoyer and the other leaders said a force of specially trained riot police equipped to respond to civil disturbances. Along with members of allied and local law enforcement agencies. were already on route to the capital. I also told them that. I authorized the mobilization of the maryland national guard and i was ready willing and able to immediately deploy them to the capital however we were repeatedly denied approval to do so under federal law. The mayor of the district of columbia does not have a thirty the guard and we must receive approval from the secretary of defense before. We're able to send our maryland national guard across the border and to the federal city into the district of columbia so we had a little back and forth trying to get that authorization and approximately an hour and a half later. I got a call on my cell phone. From the secretary of the army ryan mccarthy who gave us the authority that we needed to be able to move into the city the initial contingent of maryland national guard members were the first to arrive in washington from out of state. Okay so that's a remarkable window into what happened yesterday for which we have to think about. What recrimination what what repercussions there will be what consequences there will be. I mean here's congressman the number two democrat in the house under under nancy pelosi. Steny hoyer happens congressman from maryland. Which happens to be the state right next door to washington. Dc steny hoyer is in hiding with the other leadership in the house and senate armed. Mob has taken over the capital of the capitol. Police are overrun. There's no federal law enforcement presence that they can see at all and steny hoyer because he happens to be from maryland. He happens to have the phone number on him of the governor of maryland so that he's hunkered down in hiding under fire and that's who he calls for help governor. Can you please send some troops or something from maryland and maryland. Says sure men governor says yeah. We have civil disturbance trained police. We've got hundreds of guard troops. That are ready to go. Yes just say the word. But he can't just say so on his right. You can't just send them into dc on your own say so you need federal authorization. You need the trump administration to authorize it and the trump administration is a wall. They won't authorize it. Nobody can get a call. Returned would be secretary of defense sect in denying authorization for the maryland national guard. What was the reason we. None of us really spoke to the secretary of defense but we were repeatedly being told by the national guard at the national level that we did not have authorization actually on the phone with leader. Voyeur was leading with us the sending guard. He was yelling across the room to schumer who they were back and forth saying we. We do have the authors. And i'm saying i'm telling you we do not have the authors and so we had times. The general was running up the flagpole. We're ready don't have authorization. Don't have and then i get it fall an hour and a half later out of the blue. Not from the secretary of defense not through the normal channels. I got a number. I don't recognize on my phone. Pick it up. Anyway larry hogan and like this ryan mccarthy sector the army governor. Can you come soon as possible it. Yeah we've been waiting. We're ready don't they. Can't tell you what was going on the other end on the decision making process. There's been lots of speculation in the media about that. But i i'm not privy to what was going on inside the white house or inside. Category coverage trivia earned resolve. We love of look. Here's where i am i. I think there's no question that america would be better off if the president would resign or be removed from office. And if mike pence vice president united states would conduct the peaceful transition of power in the next thirty days until president biden this morning.

Trump calls Covid relief bill unsuitable and demands Congress add bigger stimulus payments
"Demand for bigger checks for most Americans was rejected by House Republicans. So the future of the big stimulus package aimed at helping people and businesses hurt by the pandemic remains in doubt. There's no new signal yet from President Trump on whether or not he'll sign that big economic stimulus package Congress hammered out last weekend, the president of the United States, whether he's in mar, a Lago anyplace else. Auto empathize with the pain and suffering and apprehension and deep angst that the American people are feeling this Christmas Eve. Congressman Steny Hoyer, who's fellow Democrats actually agreed with Mr Trump's call for $2000 checks to economic victims of the pandemic.

"I ask unanimous consent. After the committee on Appropriations be discharged from further consideration of HR. 90 46 ask for its immediate consideration in the House. Under guidelines consistently issued by successive speakers as recorded in section 956 of the House rules in manual. The chair is constrained to not entertain the request unless it has been cleared by the bipartisan floor and committee leaderships. So we do not have a unanimous consent that is pursuant to section for B of the House resolution. 967. The House stands adjourned until 2 P.m. on Monday, December 28 2020 mayor. Christmas. Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Dingell presiding over the U. S House floor today, again today was not scheduled as a legislative business days of just a few members there and to pass anything required that both parties leadership agree, and they did not agree. The full House does return on Monday, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi says a bill to increase the stimulus payments The $2000 will be brought up for a roll call vote then. But majority leader in the House Steny Hoyer, at a news conference after today's floor session, says it doesn't need to get to that point. President Trump, he says, should sign the original spending package that Congress sends him. Last week. As I said, we reached bipartisan agreement, we sent the bill to the president to President Trump to sign and on Lee. Then after we agreed on a figure we thought was too low for direct payments to families and Children, $600. What the Republicans would not take a higher figure on Lee then did the president. United States indicate that 600 was not enough a zoo matter of fact. Mr Manoogian had indicated that that lower figure might have been appropriate. Believe it or not, Democrats agree with the president. At least to the extent that we need to sign this bill now. 600 is certainly not enough for individuals who have been struggling these past seven months, and it isn't enough to provide the boost our economy needs President Trump as I said on the floor. On behalf of the speaker. And myself. I ask unanimous consent to pass a bill, which would have responded to the president's request. But because we did not have the agreement of the minority leader again offer the three people who can stop a unanimous consent. Any one of them disagreeing and I offered it on behalf of the speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi and myself, but it was not agreed to the morning this morning. I asked, as I said, unanimous consent. Under the rules. All three of us had to agree to of us did Minority leader did not. House Republicans rejected unanimous consent request blocking that increased so thought by Democrats and now also by President Trump. The American people need to know with certainty. Democrats are trying to get them higher stimulus payments. This is Christmas Eve. Surely President of the United States, Whether he's in mar a Lago anyplace else. Auto empathize with the pain and suffering an apprehension and deep angst that the American people are feeling this Christmas Eve. And sign this bill because we saw today Republican Congress and the White House can't agree on what they want. Again that this this bill passed overwhelmingly through the House of Representatives. In the United States Senate entire covert 19 relief package so desperately needed by our people and our businesses remains on the president's desk, and he consign it to day. I urge the president to sign the bill. We sent him so we can resume critical aid to small businesses provide peace of mind to Renner's resume expanded unemployment benefits give food to those who are hungry. To assist our healthcare workers to make sure the vaccine is not just in vials but in arms. In some To make sure that the relief that American people need and that the economy needs is adopted. He needs to sign this bill to ensure that the government remains open and serving the American people. As well. How ironic it would be to shut down the government at a time of pandemic crisis the very time when government services are needed the most no partisan politics put the people first. This bill It's for the people. For the country, the House Majority leader, Steny Hoyer, at a news conference on Capitol Hill. So see, the press writes. If President Trump were to follow through on his implied veto threat, delivered via video clip on Tuesday, the government would likely experience a brief partial shutdown starting on December 29th. And it would also, of course, delay delivery of At least the $600 direct payments at the bill does contain.

Nothing is bright. For too many. They are not sleeping peacefully. Idea a town hall last night. I had people crying people terrified of what is going to happen. I have for months been talking to 10 restaurant owners a day who are desperately trying to survive. I've been talking to people who were scared.

It still might be if we don't sign this Bill Ah, Father, who called me two weeks ago, and he said to me he had told his child that Santa Claus couldn't come this year. He wanted to be able to feed her for Christmas. People don't know what the hurt is like There was this bill. Perfect? No, but it was a down payment and getting covert relief to the people of this country. And then the president. When we finally thought that we'd be able to give people hope that's what people need hope. And be able to begin to continue to work on this in January. Doesn't give a damn about people. He's through more fear. He's who care seen on a care of fire. It is now threatening to veto this bill. Congresswoman Debbie Dingle, a Democrat on Capitol Hill, the House might already leader Kevin McCarthy, Republican tweeted. This morning, House Republicans just moved to re examine how we spend taxpayer dollars on foreign aid as president Trump called for Democrats blocked it. Thank you, Congressman Rob Wittman for representing Republicans on Christmas Eve in the fight for the American people. As that was happening. Republican Congressman James Comber was being interviewed on Fox News. Republicans wanted to file a unanimous consent to reduce the wasteful spending in that Kobe bill. What nature Pelosi has right now is a bad case of selective hearing because what the president said was he wanted to increase the stimulus direct payments from $602,000. But he also said he wanted to reduce all that wasteful spending that Nancy Pelosi Put in that bill, so they have selective hearing and I think what the president should do now. Is he should veto the bill. And if Pelosi is unwilling to cut the waste out and and start all over because 90% of the bill, I think has bipartisan support. But what the what the problems of American people saw is the process is awful, putting lots of different bills. Into one boat and then no debate. No amendments. Not enough time for everyone to completely digest the bill, and that's not what the American people want. That's a broken Congress. That's because of Nancy Pelosi. And I think the president has done a great job bringing this to the American people's attention, and now it's up to Congress to right this wrong and I appreciate the Republican standing firm on that, and I hope that we can eliminate that waste fraud and abuse in the budget. Congressman James Comer during a Fox news interview. Several journalists, including CNN's Phil Mattingly, have pointed out that the foreign aid that President Trump objected to was, in many cases the exact amount the president had asked for. In his budget request to Congress. Some reaction to today from the Senate side, The Hill newspaper report to Senator Roy Blunt, a member of the public and leadership, warning that the president's demand for $2000 stimulus checks cannot pass the Senate and also are Urging the president to sign the original agreement, Blunt said, quote It took us a long time to get where we are. I think reopening the bill would be a mistake. A short Wall Street trading day. This day before Christmas..

"Steny Hoyer one point I'm saying the Nancy Pelosi was wrong in saying that the president was racist in regards your statement they then had to take a vote based upon what Doug Collins said saying he wanted to remove that language in the vote in essence said nope language can stay at Nancy Pelosi was also supposed to be on certain level you're quieted for the remainder of the day no that didn't happen she was able to get up there talking and so while there are these house rules a lot of this house rules were broken yesterday for the sole purpose I think so that the Congress a hundred sixteen Congress what it's all said and done in the history is written Democrats will be able to say we condemn the U. S. president for the first time in more than a hundred years hi for me again if you would what you told me yesterday about the the condemnation just a that's like a slap on the wrist right there's no legal replication is a slap on the wrist it's it's a wag of the finger if you will saying within the week nothing really is going to come of this is no legal I precautions and it was a highly partisan vote mostly along partisan lines for Republicans one former Republican independent just in a much broader with Democrats it's not even because the president anything in regards to his conservative base so really just a slap on the wrist don't ever do this again but if the Democrats you get to put that in the history books former vice president Joe Biden get the democratic nomination and the time comes for he and Donald Trump to debate who wins the push up contest are we talking one handed pushups Joe Biden might win that first unless Donald Trump has did outside the other reach a big mac that you can reach for I think that this is going to be this is gonna be some heavy punches thrown the question is going to be who can take more those punches my guess is president trump can keep his cool longer than Joe Biden can I think Joe Biden is more of a reactionary but getting a really sort of angry about reactions I'm really interested to see where that goes Joe Biden did jump up and say that this was a racist attack from president trump any also hammered Republicans.

"He got that done and the mullahs report interesting enough and the Washington Examiner picked up on this today. You know, we know of an official finding as relates to the dossier being fraud. And that comes from the Muller report. You know, now that Muller has the bunk the dossier. Well, what about his buddy, Jim Komi and Sally Yates and others. Are they going to be held accountable for presenting this diabolical hoax to the Pfizer court by not telling them Hillary paid for it not telling them Christopher Steele hates Trump not telling them that it's unverified. And now, we know unverified bowl because steel doesn't stand by it. But you know, he found Robert Muller that the two most dramatic claims of Christopher Steele and the dossier likely lack substance one being that former Trump attorney Michael cone. Met with Putin operatives in Prague in the summer of two thousand sixteen by the way, I knew Michael comb because his son is an extraordinarily talented athlete. He was out on the west coast with his son who was playing his particular sport and being scouted. So I knew that it was never true and from the beginning. And then he even put out on Twitter is passport for crying out loud and steals dossier was used in applications under the surveillance that was a fraud before the surveillance court. So they tried to first they rigged an investigation to keep their favorite candidate. Then they then they disseminate false information of the public with these leaks. So that that would influence the vote in support of Hillary because Donald Trump had hookers and in a room at the Ritz and the in Moscow that we're urinating on his bed. Oh, and by the way, not that this matters to anyone in the, you know, rage and hate Trump media mob, but hate the break to them. But. Unemployment claims of now hit another record low epoch times reporting that the initial claims for jobless benefits dropped to one hundred ninety two thousand week ending April thirteenth from down five thousand from the week before that means less than fifty nine out of every one hundred thousand Americans applied for benefits a record low economists have forecast claims would rise they didn't predicting the economy's demise. It's not happening. It's interesting to watch Steny Hoyer, the house majority leader, you know, even even Adam Schiff where did I see this? I saw this on on Twitter. Somebody said sent this to me last night. And I'm looking to pull it up here. Because I thought this was pretty damning. Somebody tweeted out that shift says barring a bipartisan consensus impeachment would be fruitless is says he learned as a prosecutor that you don't bring a case if you don't think you're going to be successful just to try the case. Yeah. That's so anyway, Steny Hoyer, you know, he's still openly opposing plans to impeach. The president Pelosi seemed to drop her opposition to impeachment in the wake of the Muller report. You know, there's more focused now that just as I said, they just gonna move onto the next thing. And the next thing seems to be a let's get let's go after his finances. That's what we're gonna do we go after his finances, Steny Hoyer backtracked on his position that the president would be be worthwhile. And he's basically said the American people will make a better judgment about whether to remove Trump than congress in the twenty twenty election. Interesting of the report wasn't what it was that wouldn't have happened. Then you got you know, I wanna find out what Clapper and Brennan knew when they knew it and Susan Rice and the attorney general, hey, the tell you this. This is going to go right to the office of them. President obama. He had to know when we get to that point. It's going to get very interesting.

"All across America. Eight six six ninety redeye. He is are cutting. I'm Gary McNamara. Of course, the biggest news is what's going on. Negotiations. With the partial shutdown where are we headed, and we'll get to then just a moment. But this is really an offshoot of that Kirsten gillibrand of New York announced she's running for president exploratory committee. She's still got ten million bucks from her Senate campaign that she plans to use immediately. She was criticized by many in New York saying you flip flopped all over the place used to be used to be pro gun. And now, you're you're you're you're anti gun. You had a ton of conservative positions, you know, a few years back. And now you've changed and what she says, she's evolved look at my you look at my heart. But the the one thing on she was against illegal immigration and now yesterday, she's talking about now, she's come on board for drivers licenses for grants, and that just adds to the the, you know, the entire thing that we've talked about before of where Republicans should go which is. You know, the the truth about Democrats, and that therefore sanctuary cities. They're now for drivers licenses for legal immigrants sanctuary cities means once you get across or sanctuary state like California once you get across. We'll do everything. So you can stay we want you to stay. We believe art thought processes if you get across the border. Then you get to stay in the United States, and we'll give you a driver's license. We'll give you welfare if you need it. We will give you free medical care. If you you want it all these things are yours if you get across the border, if you get across the border, we want you to stay. An offense is bad. And that's immoral. Well, I'm sorry. If you add you may not say it. But if you add one together, you still get to and that is the proof that they are for open borders, and we have said that the Republicans ought to nail them to the political wall on that back into a corner force them to answer the questions, we have an example of that. It doesn't come from a politician, but it came from Bredbury yesterday when talking to house majority leader, Steny Hoyer who end this interview, we're gonna play short portion of it disagrees. With Nancy Pelosi the walls immoral. Disagrees with Bob Odenkirk. As we're now calling him. We realized that Robert Francis was to form. Yeah. The man of the people, Bobby. Yeah. Skateboard Bob skateboard, Bob. That he disagrees with scape. Skate board. Bob now, you're gonna you're gonna hear this when it comes to that wall is racist and part of a racist met. And this is really interesting because we think that Bret Baier got him off his game. Because at one point you'll see this intermixed with it in in one sentence. You can tell he's insulting Trump. And then the next thing you gotta realize, oh, no he's now going against the Democrats, then he realizes that in his head. So he's got to go after Trump again, then he realizes okay, but he disagrees with this. But he's all over the place. But even got to the point of this is why we know it was it was more than just the fact that Brett got him off his game because he didn't give the typical non-answer when asked about the border wall being a moral. He said no walls, not immoral unless it's used as a prison to keep people out. And as far as we know correct us if we're wrong on this. As far as we know the wall was not created. To Cape Barbra Streisand from leaving. No, it was not. In fact, it may make. The from what I know we are not attempting to force people to stay in the United States. So I wanna I wanna play this year. And I'm happy that Kirsten gillibrand came out and said what she believes that that they legal immigrants should have driver's licenses because when you put it all together, they should have driver's licenses. They should have free medical care. They should be able to get welfare they should be able to stay in this country. If they wish to stay in this country, and we won't cooperate with the federal government to deport them. Then they're not for any type of order security is our whole point is we're giving you the ultimate incentive get across. However, you can and we'll do everything to keep you. Well, is that really anybody really buy into the fact that that's border security? Now, we all know it. Let's not be children. Let's be adults. That means you're for open borders, you want everybody to come across. Yes. The the thing here about Steny Hoyer is. Maybe study is one of the few Democrats that still believes that we should have illegal immigration, but doesn't believe he can get away with saying it most the time. But he does believe it as Democrats did five years ago ten years ago fifteen years ago, the New Democrats don't as we know it casts, your Cortez, doesn't they aerobics the the skater baba works. Don't. But. Maybe some of the old guard still does a little bit. So maybe that's why it's coming out or. They never really did believe in it. But they believe they can't politically sell it right now is New York Times pointed out, that's the worry of the Democrats right now is can't say the border security is immoral. Nobody's gonna buy it. Everybody understands it. You know, you can't sit there and say, you know, that we're for border security, and then support sanctuary cities support welfare support healthcare support driver's licenses offer legal immigrants you can't sell it to the American. They know you're not being honest. And as we have stated all along. The problem is the only people have any honest debate out when it comes to illegal immigration is Republicans and conservatives. Democrats and liberals will lie to you. Now, some of the new ones won't. Or they won't lie to you as much. They may not come right out and say the term open borders, but they will promote everything that is the Bob keeping you in this country. If you're an illegal immigrant, but let's play this audio cuts us and Bret Baier was stunned Hoyer and starts out with Steny Hoyer. And I believe this is what about the about the fence being immoral here. We go. I don't think this is an issue of a morality. It's an issue of does it work and Senator Cornyn Senator Graham other members of the United States senators putting question whether a wall works whether that is the best way to secure the border.

I'm sure the president aids watch when Steny Hoyer Zannini leaders, I saw that. And so they look at it. They say when you think about it that is the first crack. When you think about the last month, Steny Hoyer sane. That walls not immoral unless it's a prison completely rejects what the speaker. Has said he's house majority leader and then on the so the the immorality and then Iraq going around saying, it's, you know, a racist response to a racist myth. Steny Hoyer rejects that also. Yeah. That's the first crack that you've seen in the Democrats over the last month the biggest crap right now. I think it's really the only crack you've seen right? Well, here's here's the thing. Is that he wouldn't have to go as far as to say? No, it's not. And and no, it's not immoral. No. It's not racist. And this is wrong. He could say easily. Look, I'm not gonna speak for other people. Right. Other people have said other things what I'm going to tell you is. We don't need a wall. And we're not gonna find a wall. He could have easily said that and gotten away with and he did he didn't. And there's a reason now I will say this I and you and I looking at the video to me he did come across a lot stirred from simple critical thinking questions that. Well, maybe nobody ever asks them those critical thinking questions, so when they do they're shocked by it. Remember when Obama where was he when when Obama was on FOX, and they were just live it on with Chris Wallace with Chris Wallace. They were limited because Chris Wallace ask follow up questions. And they publicly stated we didn't expect follow up questions. There. You ask a follow up question. And you know, Steny Hoyer has been around long enough to know that if you're on Fox News, especially if you're on with you're going to get you're going to get some of that, right? And so, you know, if you're ill prepared than you're ill prepared, right? And then he clearly was ill-prepared. So I don't know where they go from here. I actually don't know if this is just a fumble by Steny Hoyer. But it's hard to believe because he was fairly even though he was flustered. He was deliberate in his answers. You know, I could say that if he was flustered and would have said, well, I don't know. I don't know what other people's that. That would be different. But he was deliberate in his as well. The interesting thing is did you see how he was interjecting. He would go after Trump, and then say something that was going after he, you know, Aurora or or Pelosi, right? And then go back to going after Trump again, he was like going back and forth where if you weren't paying attention you're talking about the same people. Well, no, he went he was going after Trump. They are now he's going after Pelosi here now back to Trump now after a walk and that he was going back, and it was almost as if his mind was working so quick saying if I'm going to.

And if we don't get this back open, they could miss their paycheck again by next week. So I think it's appropriate that we would get back together. It would not take wall. And we could solve this problem. Discussing with the speaker rather than? I don't I couldn't imagine. She would even think about going. I mean. The president says is in a way that was not. I didn't read what it is. But I'm just shocked. She didn't think she would leave the country. Why would you leave the country with government shutdown your speaker of the house, and again, the speaker scheduled to meet with the troops in Afghanistan departing today returning early next week that trip has since been scrubbed? It was of course yesterday. When speaker Pelosi wrote to the president saying quote, sadly, given the security concerns, and unless the government reopens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has reopened for this address. The state of the union again during her weekly news conference, the speaker facing a number of questions on what is and is not on the table. And what the Democrats would or would not accept from the White House. Figure below. Republicans. They asked me again. Republicans have talked quite a bit about the comments that you made about you would only spend one dollar for the wall. Open up the government. I negotiate. That's a silly comment on the part group publicans, they're desperate. No. We have to open up government. They not either one ethnic or was it chat. You asked. Would you spend one dollars spend one dollar? But that is that is not the point. And they know that's not the point. So let's not glorify. A silly question on there. Express more willingness to negotiate on that figure for Republicans to get past this. A wall. Speaker Pelosi during her regular Thursday news conference today. Twenty seven of the partial government shutdown more from Capitol Hill. On your concerns, ma'am. Don't use speaker of the house have an obligation to be at the negotiating table negotiating table. Every night at the last one. We went to set up with the president. Leverage to leave the room. But we're at the negotiating never discourage anybody from not accepting from the president of the United States folks with there yesterday. So I don't know which meeting you're talking about that we're not at don't appear to be any active talks. And so if congress has the power of the purse couldn't you to say fine, I'll give you some money for border security. Here's how you're going to use it. Well, that's that's what we have them saying, perhaps you missed it. And perhaps we weren't clear enough. So I'll take responsibility for that. But let me go into it again. Ninety percent of the drugs and and. Asylum-seekers United States come through the courts, eventually we're saying use resources and by the way. In the last congress before we gave initiation exactly what the department asked for has four and passed in the Senate.

But let's be clear you said why don't you put you will be seeing on many things unfolding in the next few days about what our next bills will be on the floor. Ben case, I wasn't clear. Ninety percent of the drugs coming into the country. Come through the ports of entry. Let's use resources to expand. The ports of entry.

I listen to the radio, and I agree with speaker Pelosi that it is in the best interest to to send a letter that you said and to postpone. The state of the union address. These are not normal business as usual times and shouldn't be tweeted at such the federal workers. Far more the impact to the warriors. Is widespread. And of course. Other factors that are also included in this and therefore the correct thing. I. Pelosi and her movements to do this. Thank you very much for the opportunity. Thank you. Thank you for the fine work that you do all the time. Have a good afternoon. I would like to see Nancy Pelosi and Trump Schuler work with the president to open the government.

Hi, my name is Elliott, and I think it's absolutely appropriate that. That there's no reason it can't be delivered in writing the speech would to liberty in writing in. It's nothing else. They'll keep. President from going off script about other things related to his election. Thank you. Oh, I do believe I'm calling from Maryland or Cassandra? I believe the letter was appropriate. And I also share the concern that security will not be provided during it should have state of the union address place on the scheduled date because shut down there will be many agencies. That will not be able to provide protection who says did do I really care about his state of the union of the president. No not. But I also believe that for security. Your safety. The best thing for him to do it in writing. I probably will stick to a text. Thank you. I'm calling from college park, Maryland. And I think that the letter is pretty transparent and maybe not desperation. But at least diety about how powerful the message is going to be he. President Trump goes along with the union and bring the attention American people that five point seven billion dollars is simply point one percent of the annual budget. And I think it'll be pretty exposing zero. Party and house. It's really not about border security. You are you kind of cost efficiency whatsoever. It simply as a method of obstruction. Once again, I think it's evidence that. Ten or fifteen points of support have gone up. Democratic Party survey. Takers, and Republican party member survey, takers. The wall. I think that. Anxious about what what the actual possible resolutions to the situation hasn't how popular support might actually get to get this shutdown out of the way. I don't even think much of us myth how much government we. Currently didn't deprived up due to the shutdown. I think it's it's a pity revealing on how efficient and just how massive government is be shutdown all too often. And none of us really feel an impact aside from obviously the workers. But anyway, that's my. I make it on. Well, it made it on. We thank you for your calls and comments on the C span radio listener feedback line. Meanwhile, the president taking a hit with this shutdown. The latest Gallup poll has his overall approval rating at thirty seven percent that's down two percent from December during remarks at the Pentagon on the missile defense program. More on that coming up, the president used the occasion to once again, blame it on the Democrats this morning. I also would like to briefly address another matter of critical national security, the Amana -tarian and security crisis at our southern border. Without a strong border, America's defenseless vulnerable and unprotected I also want to thank the military for helping us out during the big caravan period. But now, you have more caravans forming, and they're on the way up thousands and thousands of people. We don't know where they're from who they are nothing. We need strong borders. We need strong barriers and walls. Nothing else is going to work. Everyone knows it. Everybody's saying it now. Just a question of time. Should have been done many years ago. Should have been done by other really by other presidents, and it wasn't just like many of the other things we're doing that could have been done many years ago. Whether it's negotiations with North Korea. Moving the embassy to Jerusalem. So many things were supposed to have been done many years ago, they weren't but we're doing them. A wall has to be built we need security at our southern border drugs. Flow in tremendous percentages of the drugs coming into our country, come from the southern border. We're not going to allow it to happen. And that is why our homeland security professionals have asked congress for a steel barrier. Between the ports of entry to fund damore agents beds, medical supplies, and technology and to close the ridiculous and dangerous immigration loopholes that no country in the world has but us. The federal government remained shut down because congressional Democrats refuse to approve border security. We're going to have border security. It's going to be tight. It's going to be strong. We're going to let people into our country gladly. But they're gonna come into legally that includes for the farmers who need help and for others, but we are going to have powerful strong border security, the president earlier today at the Pentagon and this C-SPAN note from our communications director Howard, Mortensen, Representative Alexandria, Qazi Cortez's, first speech from the house floor quickly became C Span's most viewed Twitter video her remarks drawing one point one million viewers in just over twelve hours. The New York Democrats speaking yesterday about the wall, the president and the government shutdown and the truth of this shutdown is that actually not about a wall. It is not about the border. And it is certainly not about the wellbeing of every day Americans. The truth is this shutdown is about the erosion of American democracy and the. Version of our most basic governmental norms. It is not normal to hold eight hundred thousand workers paychecks hostage. It is not normal to shut down the government when we don't get what we want. It is not normal for public servants to run away and hide from the public that they serve, and it is certainly not normal to stop to starve the people we serve for a proposal that is wildly unpopular among the American people each and every member of this body has a responsibility to this nation and to everyone in the United States of America, whether they voted for us or not and this president shares in that responsibility as well.

Well, also, noting that there was no plan stop in Egypt. Drew Hamill tweeted out. The code L to Afghanistan included a required. Stop in Brussels for pilot rest in Brussels. The delegation was scheduled to meet with top NATO, commanders, US, military leaders and key allies to affirm the United States ironclad commitment to the NATO alliance. He continued this weekend. Visit to Afghanistan did not include a stop in Egypt. He continued the president traveled to Iraq during the Trump shutdown as did a Republican code L led by representatives Zeldin. House majority leader, Steny Hoyer, a democrat from Maryland called the move petty and small saying Fox News or somebody it is on becoming of the president of the United States. But it is unfortunately, a daily occurrence. Now Republicans to be completely objective or split over the president's decision. House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, Republican from California said it was quote completely appropriate. But Senator Lindsey Graham Republican of South Carolina on the Senate side called it inappropriate. He tweeted out that one quote, one sophomoric response does not deserve. Another speaker, Pelosi's threat to cancel the state of the union is very irresponsible and blatantly political, President Trump. He tweeted denying speaker Pelosi military travel to visit our troops have Afghantistan our allies in Egypt and NATO is also inappropriate. I think it's fantastic. I think it is absolutely fantastic. They don't have a right to military aircraft anymore than I did. And I was a member of the executive branch. Now, I was never denied. In fact, one time I was told I was kind of pushing back because I really wanted to testify in front of a congressional hearing. And I'd already been in California for fires. And I was flying back and on the way back. I got a call from the White House chief of staff while I was on the Gulfstream. Instead, we we we hear you're flying back. There's a hearing tomorrow, I I really want to testify it. And he goes, well, that's fine. Isuzu finished testifying get right back on that Gulfstream and head right back out to California. We need you back out in California. So I- testified the next morning and that afternoon got on a plane back in Andrews on headed right back to San Diego. I was never denied. Military aircraft. I never ask for it for anything other than a very specific governmental purpose. Certainly not to go give a speech somewhere. I never took military aircraft to go. Give a speech for that. It was commercial the flying to a disaster always military, and there's a reason for that. And the reason for that is. You need to be able to move about. And you can't move about with commercial aircraft. The way you can with a private aircraft military plane. So I'm really curious three zero three seven one three eighty five eighty five.

"Morality. It's an issue of does it work someplace, obviously, some places there are all sorts of alternatives that we could pursue. I think that's come up with a consensus solution to achieve the objective. I think we all want to achieve and that is a secure and safe border for our country and for a democrat. You're listening to. The democrat. I think to come up with a consensus solution to achieve the objective. I think we all want to achieve and that is a secure and safe border for our country. And I citizens ought to go read Farhadi men today in the New York Times advocating for no borders and suggesting a democrat can win everything by adopting read that it was a democrat, Steny Hoyer, Pelosi's number two. I come up with a consensus solution to achieve the objective. I think we all want to achieve a secure and safe border for our country. Well, that sound bite made the rounds of all bunch of other cable news shows including today on America's newsroom, Sandra. Smith was talking to Matt schlab American conservative union, chairman about comments last night. Sandra? Smith said he said, it's not an morality suggests border walls in his words work. Sandra dirty. Little secret is that there are a lot of divisions. Amongst Democrats, stating your does not like Nancy Pelosi, and that came out in his interview, and the facts came out, we have something like six hundred and ninety miles of a border protection on our southern border half, the border already has walls, fences and barriers. All the president is saying let's add some two hundred miles to that. It's actually a pretty modest proposal. And even when Nancy Pelosi said that I can't handle for some crazy reason the idea of cement, which is a part of buildings everywhere on the globe. He said, okay. We'll do some. We'll do American steel Steny Hoyer. According to match slap does not like Pelosi at all. So far as to say that he hates her gut has been fighting her for decades that they have an acrimonious relationship. It's never covered by the media. That's true. It isn't. I hear this. I asked if it's so acrimony. Why does she put up with him is number two? She wouldn't have to now not I'm not disbelieving. Matt slap. No, no way. I just want to tell you what you remember. You may not. I remember the day that the Democrats celebrated the signing of ObamaCare. Had the ceremony at the White House, and they had a bunch of buses up on Capitol Hill and take a bunch of democrat members of congress up there the White House to participate in the signing ceremony. Debbie blabbermouth Schultz was running around. She was exulting. She was so happy. She couldn't stay on the bus. She kept getting on a bus and getting off the bus posing for every camera that she could find just excited as she could be steady Hoyer on the other hand did not look. Like he was feeling celebratory at all. Now, this has nothing to do with Pelosi other the fact that she had spearheaded it through the house, but it was clearly Obama's deal. She was running around Pelosi affordable healthcare for all Americans do for. She doesn't even know what it was gonna cost people. She had no clue. Affordable healthcare for all it, but stemming or your did not look like he was all in on now ads. Just facial expression. Maybe he looks like a mummy all the time. I don't know. But he did not look like he was into this. And I did not know until match slap said last night, the Hoyer and Pelosi do not get along. That was also news. Courage to fight and.

I am absolutely open to discussions of the proper way to craft and enforce immigration law in different people have different views enroll going to have to come together as a nation. If we ever get a handle on this beast and figure out what we wanna do. Great super fine. But I don't appreciate people lying and whipping up racial hatred. When they don't mean what they're talking about. And there've been a couple of questions I've really wanted to put to Nancy Pelosi, for instance, and Bego overwork who's constantly trying to whip up racial angst. Whenever anybody talks about immigration policy, Bret Baier had Steny Hoyer, who's the number two, no pun intended. No shot intended. These the second most powerful democrat in the house of representatives at this point. The majority leader Bret Baier of Fox News asked Steny Hoyer about a number of wall related shutdown related immigration related topics. And he asked some of those questions I've been dying to hear what about the people who turn to you and speaker Pelosi and say put something on the table compromise with something. So that the balls move down the field. We're prepared to do that. Frankly, we have supported. A lot of resources and expansion of the border security personnel security technology. All sorts of things that have been designed to make the border more secure, and we're prepared to do. So and we said that down at the White House. Unfortunately, the focus has been on one issue, and that's been very very difficult to discuss alternatives ways of securing the border. We don't think the wall works, as you know, from awful lot of Republicans didn't. Don't the wall for work as well. As you know, the Republicans didn't offer a Bill on the floor until December twentieth. Almost for the year was over on border security, but we're prepared wanna see. Good. Border security, protect Americans and stop drugs. Illegal contraband from coming into the country. Well, here is the speaker and the Senate majority.

They say when you think about it that is the first crack when you think about the last month, Steny Hoyer sane. That a walls not immoral unless it's a prison completely rejects what the speaker. Has said he's house majority leader and then on the so the the immorality and then a Iraq going around saying, it's, you know, a racist response to a racist myth. Steny Hoyer rejects that also. Yeah. That's the first crack that you've seen in the Democrats over the last month. The biggest crack, right, man. I think it's really the only crack you've seen right? Well, here's the thing. That he wouldn't have to go as far as to say. No, it's not. And and no, it's not immoral. No. It's not racist. And this is verbally wrong. He could say easily, look, I'm not gonna speak for other people. Right. Other people have said other things what I'm going to tell you is. We don't need a wall. And we're not gonna fund a wall. He could have easily said that and gotten away with any. Did he didn't? And there's a reason now I will say this I and you and I looking at the video to me he did come across luster from simple critical thinking questions that. Well, maybe nobody ever asks them those critical thinking questions, so when they do they're shocked by it. Remember when Obama where was he when when Obama was on FOX, and they were just live it on with Chris Wallace with Chris Wallace. They were livid because Chris Wallace ask follow up questions. And they publicly stated we didn't expect follow up questions. How dare you ask a follow?

"And as you're speaking, we're looking at what power on the move looks like speaker Pelosi walking here with or security retinue and a member leadership, Steny Hoyer, flanking her shaking hands. She approaches the microphone. Any minute. She's gonna hold this press conference. I think we're gonna listen in and see if she makes news on the shutdown and then come back to our panel. Let's listen, it leader Mitch Hoyer are distinguished chair of the appropriations committee needed Lowy and our tier of the government homeland security subcommittee of the appropriations committee congresswoman Lucille Volvo. All art. Okay. I note Mr. Clyburn had come from the Tyrian. We. As you are aware. We have we are diligent diligent and persistent in trying to open up government as I said today on the floor. We will take ideas good ideas from wherever they come, including the idea of the appropriations bills passed by the Republicans in the United States Senate passed six bills four of them on the floor with over ninety votes. Two of them in committee unanimously on those six bills cover eight agencies departments of government that could be opened. Just by the stroke of the pen of the president of the United States separate from that. We are sending what the Senate set also passed which is a Bill to extend to have a continue resolution until February eighth. Taking their exact date from the Senate that would cover homeland security and give us the weeks it to negotiate an agreement to open up government in that department. Again, we've taken worse for word, and I'm going to yield an moment after Mr. Hoyer to our distinguished chair of the probation committee to demonstrate how purely Republican and senatorial these measures were and so we've separated out there to boats one on the eight departments of government that could be open now to meet the needs of the American people to meet the needs of the American people to protect our borders, and and to protect our workers. And again, the other Bill is mostly about protecting border. So and that's fear. It I wanna Yotaro distinguished democratic leader. Of the house. Mr. Hoyer to talk about the need for us to open up government. Thank you very much. Congratulations modem speaker on your we've been listening to what you just saw Nancy Pelosi in her first press conference since returning to the speakership. She just handed off to standing Hoyer. I want to bring back our panel. We have the perfect panel to help us understand what we're seeing as Pelosi says, there's a new dawn, there's a new congress, and she's putting pressure on Donald Trump to reopen. The government Senator Dorgan having work with her having served in the house. So what are we seeing there? Well, she's going to send back to the Senate. She'll get passed by her majority in the house and send back to the Senate a piece of legislation that the Senate passed nearly unanimously, in fact, by voice vote, you might remember a politician. It was a democrat. In fact, some years ago who said I voted for it before I voted against it a little John Carey tests. Well, well, you you might be the situation here where if Senator. Mcconnell would bring that Bill to the vote to a vote a Bill that's going to pass the house tonight or tomorrow. It would put every Republican Senator in that position saying, well, I bought Ford. But then I before I voted against it. So Senator very good positions in what you're talking about. There is exactly what I was just discussing with Lawrence O'Donnell and Hoyer sort of backing up Pelosi right now making the case as I mentioned, we're gonna keep listening if they take live questions or make news we'll dip back in there..
