"Why I We do appreciate you being here is I hope you've ordered your copy. You know the kids Maybe. Maybe over the summer to fight the way it's been going on for a year. Now the brain drain If he boarded your Biden dictionary. It is a the Joe Biden Dictionary. The new definition that there's new definitions every single day. The Did leftist taking and introducing To the country to support their narrative to support what they are doing. Now, This is this is where it gets, it gets really on because bipartisanship It. I think the definition is in the word bipartisanship. This is parties coming together on an issue. That's right. So Republicans and Democrats is we have a two party system. Bipartisanship has always meant there during the Obama administration. Itwas Susan Collins over here like you were doing, she said. It's right thing to do. So Susan Collins was there. Bipartisanship. Because they had a Republican senator that actually wanted to reach across the aisle and work with the Democrats. Now. According to the Biden, White House, and Biden senior adviser and needed done. Quote if you look Up bipartisan in the dictionary. I think it would say no life. Those those were her words. If you look up bipartisan in the dictionary, I think it would say. From Republicans and Democrats. It doesn't say the Republicans have to be in Congress. So essentially what the biting White House is saying that most of the country thinks is $2.25 trillion spending package is terrible. We hate it. But if there's one Republican whether they're an elected official or not, if there's one Republican that likes it and supports it. It's now a bipartisan bill Day a A. So all we gotta do is go all across America. 74 million people vote for Donald Trump I gotta do is find one of those people. Could be a teacher from Des Moines. Could be a factory worker in Pittsburgh. Could be you right here in Arizona, Driving home from work right now. It could be you. It says. You know what? That infrastructure plans. Not bad. All of a sudden, Joe Biden bipartisan, bipartisan cause real Republicans or not, but you see what they're trying to do. They're trying to basically create a division between you and the Republican Party to Mitch McConnell's The Kevin McCarthy's the people that are leading the Republican Party in Washington like No, No, no, These are real Republicans. Real Republicans who vote Republican. They want this $2.2 trillion infrastructure spending and we're going to just find a few. We're gonna go back to where the white people hang out at watch the 700 club. Deadliest catch NASCAR country music TV, and we're gonna find one of those. Kind white folks to support the infrastructure plan. Rama mangle twinkle toes himself Rama Manual of the Obama White House former chief of staff, then Chicago mayor. Listen to this. This is this is fabulous. His quote. He said. What has become crystal clear is that Biden has redefined bipartisan It isn't how many Republicans I've got. It's how many Republican voters or mayor's or governors I can get to support my stuff. That's exactly what he's looking for. If he has a maybe a a rhino, Chris Christie, who has no job doing anything anywhere, but Chris Christie and get Chris Christie, a Republican to support it, then it is bipartisan, as a matter of fact that Democrats are naming their bills. With the word bipartisan, innit? Yep. The river. The bipartisan background check acted. There's no bipartisanship in that at all. But they name it bipartisan. Just so you can so you can think it is bipartisan. See? You don't like the definition of the word. Just change it. That's all you got to do. This is Washington D C mail doesn't mean mail any more. Female doesn't mean female changed that infrastructure. You thought it was. Roads, bridges and airports. Not everything is infrastructure. We've changed that definition. Bipartisanship. No, no. You thought it was Washington, D c. The two parties work and get them. Now we're trying to make it more palatable to shove these expensive plans down America's throat by just saying they're bipartisanship so you have to do and we can say is bipartisanship. Then people go. That's not by partisans were we changed the definition? Hey, you can't do that. That's against the rules. We could change the rules. They did that in the election. They do They do that in their committees all the time. If it doesn't support him, just change.

"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles and I married Louise Kelly In Washington. President Biden passed his first big legislative accomplishment. The pandemic relief bill without a single Republican vote, not one Now. He insists he wants to work with both Democrats and Republicans to pass an infrastructure and jobs plan Today, a group of lawmakers from both parties who went to the Oval Office to see if they could find some agreement. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson has been monitoring this. Hey there, Mara. Hi, Mary Louise, who was there today at the White House. And do we know what they discussed? It was a very precisely divided group for Republicans for Democrats evenly divided between the House and Senate Republican senators. Roger Wicker of Mississippi was there. Deb Fischer of Nebraska on the Democratic side, Maria Cantwell. Alex Padilla of California who happened to have replaced Kamila Harris in the Senate. These are Republicans that have key committee positions that have to do with infrastructure. They're not. You're predictable group of moderates like Lisa Murkowski or Joe Manchin and Susan Collins. These are people who would talk about the actual policy solutions. Rather than find a quick path to some top line number for how big the bill should be. And what are the road bumps along that quick path? What are the biggest growed bump? Yeah, The biggest road bump is pretty basic. What is infrastructure? The White House has a very expansive definition of infrastructure, not just roads and bridges. Here's how President Biden explained it today. The fact that we have Millions of people not able to drink water because there's lead on there is coming through lead pipes. I think that's infrastructure. I think broadband is infrastructure. It's not just roads, bridges, highways, etcetera. So, according to the White House proposal. It's also electric vehicle chargers, making sure we make semiconductors in the United States instead of buying them from China Long term care facilities. Ah, Universal pre K, So there's human infrastructure. There's technologies of the future. Today, the White House put out a fact sheet for every single state, laying out the economic cost of not doing more in all of these areas they call infrastructure. Meanwhile, Republicans are putting out talking points that say this is an infrastructure at all. It's just big, liberal Wish list dressed up is infrastructure. And how hard is it going to be to persuade them otherwise? How serious is that effort? I think the effort is serious. I think it will be very hard. The safest bet nowadays is always to bet against bipartisanship. But remember the last time around the president proposed $1.9 trillion pandemic relief bill Repent, Republicans came back with a $600 billion bill. The gap was just too big to bridge by then ended up passing it with Democratic votes alone. This time, Biden's number is much bigger over true $2 trillion in infrastructure spending. He wants to raise corporate taxes to 28%, but he's all So I've been saying that he is open to negotiation. Groups of moderate Democrats say they want those tax hikes to be smaller. And this time around, Biden has a little more time. Remember, covert relief was an emergency bill. Now the White House says they want to wait till Memorial Day to see if a bipartisan of package of bills can be created. But Republicans are adamantly against any tax hikes to pay for this and explain Mora a distinction the White House seems to be drawing. They have been arguing. Yes, we want Republican support for all this, but we don't necessarily need Republicans in Congress if Republican voters are on board that that would be bipartisanship. It's a woman. What does that tell you about how much Biden really wants or needs Republican support here? That's the million dollar a quarter trillion dollar question. I think Joe Biden would love to pass something with Republican support. It's in his didna, but you're right. The Democrats are moving forward with plans to pass the bill in the Senate under reconciliation, which was what allowed them to need only 51 votes if necessary. S so they're moving forward to make sure they can pass it no matter what, even if they don't get Republican support, and also defining bipartisan bipartisanship is you said, by whether Republican voters like the infrastructure plan, as opposed to members of Congress, who are Republicans who might want to vote for it. Almost seems designed to tick off Republicans to imply that they're not in touch with the electorate. But you know, Republicans don't have to answer to voters at large. They care about their base voters. Thank you, Morrow. Thank you. NPR's Mara Liasson. To Germany now, where hospitals say they are about to run out of intensive care beds.

"Congress. Now here's what else matters today as you probably know by. Now if you listen to this podcast enough. The biden white house does not define bipartisanship as the vote. Tally board in congress. They define bipartisanship as putting forward ideas that get support from democrats republicans and independents across the country. Getting bipartisan buying from voters. Even if the final votes in congress are purely partisan but that's not stopping the administration from opening the door welcoming republicans into the oval office and for the president to really try and form some kind of consensus going forward as it relates to his two trillion dollar infrastructure plan and that begins in earnest today. When president biden holds a bipartisan meeting of lawmakers with vice president harrison attendant in the oval office the attendees in today's meeting are not congressional leaders. They're not even necessarily the swing votes. Like joe manchin or a susan collins in the united states senate that is so closely divided but they are key players on key committees both in the house and in the senate that deal with infrastructure as a critical component of their work. So again this is not a making meeting because you would have actual congressional leaders in there or the critical swing votes that will determine whether or not this becomes bipartisan in congress. What you haven't said is the beginning of a process of the biden administration showing. It's genuine interest in trying to find some way to have this be bipartisan. But by no means as the biden white house suggesting that at the end of the day if republicans get on board that they refuse to go it alone in fact above all else they say inaction.

Maine's Republican Senator Susan Collins, the leader of the group, and White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, both described the meeting as productive. Starting
Biden meets with Republicans on COVID-19 relief
"Republican lawmakers today that just wrapped up led by Senator Susan Collins to discuss New covert 19 relief package more in depth now from Elizabeth Schultz. He was covering it for ABC News and talked with Cuomo's Taylor Vance Ice Elizabeth. We know President Biden is in favor of a $1.9 trillion package. What is Senator Collins and her team pushing for well, they are wanting a much smaller packages. The reality here they're pushing for a deal worth $618 billion persons at $1.9, Trillion put forward by President Biden. It includes some of the same provisions like Monday like money for vaccine distribution, small businesses childcare in schools, and it also includes another round of stimulus checks. The Republican proposal includes stimulus checks for $1000. Or individuals. But it's a much smaller group of Americans that we've seen in the past and in President Biden's proposal, these would only go to people making up to $50,000 a year. The Republicans are calling it a much more targeted approach. Given how much economic stimulus has already been passed, they say, We just do not need to pass this trillion dollar amounts. Okay, Any word at this point, though, if the president's team or the president himself is willing to bite on any of that, not at all. We're hearing from the White House, in fact that this is a meeting to exchange ideas. Not to reach some sort of grand bargain. The White House has said time and time again that the risk is that not enough ages past versus too much, so they seem to really be standing by this nearly $2 trillion amount. Now. The question is if they're going to move forward in Congress, with a plan that could essentially passed by this proposed proposal without any Republican votes. So far, the House and the Senate have taken the first step to do that, in a process called budget reconciliation that would essentially allow this Broader package to pass to the simple majority in both the House and the Senate that we wouldn't need a bipartisan deal to be reached at the end of the day. So that's something that President Biden was really pushing for. On the campaign trail is this idea of bipartisanship. Now, As this meeting began between Republicans and the president, there was some news that broke from the Congressional Budget Office right about how the U. S economy. Is expected to recover. There is no notably today that Congressional Budget Office upgraded its forecast for the economy and now expects GDP growth to reach its pre pandemic level. By the middle of this year, so this complicates the negotiations a little bit, and that the forecast seems a little bit rosier than had previously been thought. At the same time, the CBO says it's going to take years for the jobs market to fully recover with millions of Americans. Well unemployed and the White House response to this was essentially that even if the broader economy looks like it's going to come back, there's still so many people who need aid to pay their rent. You cannot get through the day to day and there is no question that we need more money to get these vaccines after people so they're still standing by their kind of push for more stimulus, And they say that really they're just cannot be enough. Aid right now, even if the outlook is looking a little bit better here and just for my own clarification that this CBO congressional budget office estimation that's assuming that there wasn't another sort of relief package passed, right. That's correct. That's based on the current outlook, just as it is, and I will know that there have been other afternoons out there that say that if the current package passed by Biden go through, that would significantly boost to growth even by a lot more. Alright. The ABC is Elizabeth shows
Should fewer Americans get a stimulus check?
"Republicans going to the White House today to really put this idea of bipartisanship in unity. To the test. They've got their own covered relief plan. It's one third the size and expense of what the White House has been offering. They'd like to make this a bipartisan deal to signify that they can get along and move down a different path. But is it just sound in fury signifying nothing. We turn to Rachel Sutherland watching it all on Capitol Hill are Forks, Fox correspondent and W. Jared Contributor. I, Rachel A guy? Yes, these 10 Republicans led by Susan Collins. We're going to the White House meeting scheduled at 5 P.m. in the Oval Office of 5 P.m. eastern time. But there is a great divide on this coronavirus release plan. The president is calling for $1.9 trillion Some Republicans have a counterproposal. $600 billion still includes a lot, but there are key differences for one Republicans want a $1000 stimulus check instead of the $1400 stimulus check. They also want income limits to be different under the Biden plan that believes that income on that start you start phasing out over 75 or $80,000 a year, Republicans would see that phase out, starting at 40 or $50,000 a year. They say This is more targeted relief to the people who most needed. The trick here is sometimes 40 or 50 doesn't take you very far, depending on where you live, how expensive it is. I don't know if they're taking that into account. No, no question. And also there's this notion that some people have been held harmless that have really felt no economic sting at all, and that they could still get money under both plans. Actually, I did want to ask you. There's some day of news here that is, is making things more curious, and that is the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, releasing a forecast Stating that our economy absent any significant intervention could be back at pre pandemic economic growth numbers by the middle of this year. Does that have anybody rethinking the size of this stimulus plan? And does that give Republicans maybe some ammunition to say Hey, we don't need a $2 trillion bail out here. Is that something from the Congressional Budget Office and those were the nonpartisan be encounters. They're making this production that by the middle of the year we could be back to where we were before. Which is, if you think about it remarkable that people who live day to day man who may be lost or business lost her job was heard of people living in their cars, and they find it. Hard to believe. But yeah, I do. Pretty guy could give Republicans ammunition coming Anything. What? We have this report to the CBO saying that things were going to get better. But because the vaccines are on the way, it's been about a bit of a bumpy rollout. Now there's been announcement from the government of at home testing kits. They're going to ramp up production. That you can test it home and then hook it up to an analyzer and it'll give Aries. So if you have a smartphone within 15 minutes, imagine how that could change our world in our lives. And going places going back to school. Going back to work. Maybe going to see a concert. Something like that. And all of those things. Yeah. What so much talk about bipartisanship right now. And I'm curious because you know if I'm talking to people that run restaurants have I'm talking people in the street. I think they're saying, Look, we need help. We don't really give a rip whether who wants to take credit for it or whether it's bipartisan or not. How important is the bipartisan bill to the White House? How important is it to the GOP? And why are they struggling so hard to try to at least look like they are moving down that road? This is the first test of bipartisanship. The first real test to see Okay. Does President Biden mean it when he's talking about unity? This meeting today so important? It's also noteworthy that there are 10 senators from the Republican side going over. That's enough to break the filibuster. And go ahead and pass something if they can't come to agreement Democrats have in their back pocket. This idea. I'm sure you heard of it. Budget reconciliation, which was it's a maneuver that allows him to get around the filibuster and passed us on the simple majority vote. But Republicans don't like the idea for one. This includes a $15 minimum wage, which serves they're saying Whoa, Hold on. I might have to lay off workers and we don't need that in the pandemic.

Democrats control Senate after three new senators are sworn in
"Hours hours after after President President Joe Joe Biden Biden and and Vice Vice President President Kamila Kamila Harris Harris were were sworn sworn in in the the Senate Senate got got back back to work. Today, Control shifted from Republicans, two Democrats by the slimmest possible margin. First Vice President Harris swore in the new Democratic senators from Georgia who will give her party the numerical edge. And that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter. So help you God. Yeah. Congratulations to tell us more. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gristle aside there. Hi, Ari. Tell us more about what happened today. So the Senate finalized their transfer of power from a Republican led chambers has been the case since 2015 to 1 that is divided 50 50 and led by one Democrat as the tiebreaker. And that's Vice President Kamala Harris. Democrats 12 weeks ago. But finally today, these two new senators from Georgia, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff's who shifted control of the chamber were sworn in and this is ahead of some very heavy lifts ahead. The chambers. New Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in his floor in his former marks, said quote I need to catch my breath so much is happening. But he's already highlighted three big tasks ahead a Senate impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump confirming Biden's Cabinet nominees and taking up a $1.9 trillion biting proposal for new coronavirus coronavirus relief aid. Yeah, Those are three very big tasks. What are Republicans saying about the next steps? We saw Republican leaders extending all of branch today trying to bridge some of this dramatic divide the trump years brought with Democrats. For example, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged this transfer of power in his hopes to work with Biden. And this is the theme I heard from other Republicans today, they thought bite, instruct the right tone. In his inauguration speech, lifting these bipartisan hopes I talked to Alaska senators Lisa Murkowski, Let's take a listen. You can still disagree from a policy perspective and you can do so in ways that are still respectful and allow you to continue to work towards other goals. I also caught up with GOP Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who sounded a similar note. She said Biden struck those right themes of unity and a call for parties to stop viewing one another as adversaries, and she stands ready to advance their common goals. And West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin told Capitol Hill reporters today that a bipartisan group that includes workhouse game Collins would be meeting with Biden administration in the coming days. So again, this bipartisan theme was much of what I heard today from both sides. So how are they plan to tackle impeachment, massive legislation and confirming Biden's cabinet all at once? That will be a real test for whether members can talk into gum at the same time, as they like to say. Democrats are betting they can. One proposal that's being entertained is whether they can split their days between an impeachment trial and confirming these nominees. But first they need to reach a power sharing agreement with Republicans. Then they hope to tackle these big ticket items at warp speed in the coming days. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Greece, Alice Thank you. Thanks for having me.

Yes, right now, it's the Buck Sexton show one more night with the godfather, Michael palca in for my friend, Buck Sexton what a night to be here. What a week to be on the radio what a remarkable turn of events today in congress. There's other stuff going on. But I think it's appropriate. It's incumbent upon me to get out of the blocks and say, thank you. Thank you. Thank you to Susan Collins of Maine, just an amazing speech. I I don't know if you sat through the whole thing, I'll try and give you some highlights. But tonight, we are going to pay tribute. We're going to pay tribute to the women of the GOP. And we'll also give some props to Mitch McConnell. But it was the women of the GOP who may judge cavenaugh a almost. Well, I don't want to jinx it because Jeff flake said unless something big happens. I'm yes. But. It looks like judge Cavanaugh will become Justice Cavanaugh within the next twenty four hours. It really does. And it's just exciting. You want to join in on the discussion tonight, you know, the number eight four four nine hundred two eight two five eight four four nine hundred. I'm so excited. Eight four four nine hundred buck which is to it too far. We're we'll happy to talk about this happy to get into some of the other stuff out there. The economy is just in a great place. Unemployment the lowest it's been since nineteen sixty nine three point seven percent. It's almost at the point where. We're at full employment because there's a certain percentage of the population that can't work for whatever reasons physical, mental, just whatever. So we're almost at full unemp- full employment, minimal unemployment just a great thing. And with four weeks to go before the midterms. This is something really good for President Trump. Let's hope people are paying attention. But I just can't I'm bullion if I were doing a word of the day, maybe I'll pull a word of the day out today. I will get some of the some of the big hits from Susan Collins speech today, did you watch it or did you listen to it because I was listening to it. I was not in front of a television this afternoon. I happen to have it in my ears listening. The. Sirius XM satellite radio thing. Had it in my headset. And as I'm listening, I'm thinking, she's laying out the case, she's taking apart every argument against cavenaugh and doing it with logic and style, and then I went back just before the show, and I sat down I watched some of the clips. And then I watched it. I realized the Republicans have gotten it, right? The Republicans figured it out. They staged this moment beautifully. And I'm talking about casting. And everything if you watched it, you know, what I'm talking about. Because Susan Collins up there in the Senate, delivering this speech gave us an absolute masterclass in how to bring your argument to the forefront and delivered it with style. And as I said with perfection, the construction of the sentences, something that should be taught in government, classes, and law classes, how to give a winning argument. It just was epic. But what made it even more important when you watched it on TV, and I'm sure we're gonna hear the numbers are massive. There were two women prominently featured behind Susan Collins. Now, so often we hear that the Republican party is the party of a bunch of old white guys. We had three women featured you couldn't see Joni Ernst she was off to the side, but she was up to. But you had Susan Collins front and center and a very professional. Look, I think she got a new haircut to I'm sure she did, you know, it's all about image. It's all about optics. Susan Susan Collins up there on one side Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia. Republican Senator to the other side Cindy, Hyde Smith a Senator from Mississippi right behind her. So now, you have this moment where we as conservatives have had the tar beaten out of us for the last three weeks being accused of being just the worst people in the world the party. That does not understand women, and you have a woman. Delivering the knockout punch a woman who's known to be pro choice. So now, you have someone that other women, especially boy that was that argument that judge Cavanaugh is going to destroy rove e Wade, you have a pro choice. Women standing in front of the world talking about how Cavanaugh can't do it that in fact that the the people that the the Democrats were worried about tearing apart Roe v. Wade years ago, not only did they not do it. They wrote the argument against overturning Roe v. Wade. So you have brilliantly staged brilliantly written delivered for an audience that would then turn it into prime time response. So after all of the theater this week after all the circus like atmosphere for the last eight days in Washington D C you ended with an epic finish. So Bravo to you GOP Bravo to you, and to the what was it five hundred plus protesters arrested today, I think I'm not sure I think Spartakist got arrested today. I'm not sure I think that that would make sense for him because that would be a good campaign commercial for twenty twenty presidency hopes for for Cory Booker or should have we call them sugar as I taught you guys last night. I found the yearbooks from some of the angry Democrats on the judiciary committee started going through their senior yearbooks to say. Gee, what was in your yearbook Cory Booker had his nickname sugar? And I don't know about you. But I lived in the New York New jersey metro area where Cory Booker lived and went to school in those years in the late eighties and Booker we called cocaine. Referred to as sugar. So why were you sugar Senator? Is there something you need to tell us? And also the guy who said he had groped a young woman at the fifteen in the article he wrote called stealing second or something. Like that Booker. Also had his senior, quote was let's go all the way. So Cory Booker has some spleen and to do, but he may be got arrested today, it's not really an arrest as we saw with Amy Schumer yesterday. It's kind of like being scurried off to get your picture taken. And then somebody pays fifty bucks. You get a ticket, and you go home or you go back to the protest, but there's so much to get to today so much. I'm just so happy about this. And we will take into it. But I want to remember what sparked all of this. And it was Donald Trump nominating. Mr. Cavanaugh, judge Cavanaugh and on the date when that happened. Chris Matthews, the elder statesman and MSNBC have to wonder how much longer he's going to continue in his role. Chris Matthews was on the air talking about revenge. And I tell you all of this all of this anger towards anything. Donald Trump does towards any nominee. He brings forward all of this resistance and obstruction which started the day after Trump was elected. It's a dangerous thing for the Democrats. When you go out and develop all of your missions in life based on revenge. They tell you to dig two graves because you're going to be joining whoever you think you're going to take down remember this from June twenty eighth this year. Chris Matthews on MSNBC following the announcement of the supreme court pick from President Trump. This is time for vengeance. For what happened two years ago? And if they don't wreak the vengeance now with four and a half weeks four and a half months ago before the election. They will not look very strong to their base. And I think they'll be under attack. Yeah. Yeah. That was a good plan. Wasn't it? It wasn't a Chris Matthews. If you don't if you don't go after vengeance. And he's talking about Merrick garland. He was talking about Hillary's loss. I'll tell you talk about backfiring. Because the way the shrill arguments came out without facts, which is one hundred ninety degrees from what Susan Collins delivered today, they sounded like a bunch of sheep oil, especially when you hear the chanting, the chanting, the nonstop shrill, chanting, it just great, and greats and greats. Now, I like to say this is a. A good sign for the midterms, but a month in political terms is an eternity. It's an absolute eternity. So I have sort of a plan that I think the GOP should lay out in advance of the midterms that will keep the interest of those of us who are conservatives who want to try and save the house, although it's a really tough tough event to try and pull off to save the house when the president of the other part when you know, what happens when you get the house and the Senate and the presidency in the very next election, the midterms history tells us it always balances out and the voters will give power back to the other party. So for the GOP to retain the house would be a little bit of a miracle. But I have a plan and will share with you. I also want to hear your thoughts on today. If you have any thoughts on teddy, it's Friday, let's have some fun. And I have a really ridiculous question for you. I know the other day I asked a question about was the what was the scariest movie of all time? And a lot of you.

"Again, there is no scenario where they don't get a radical conservative for this spot in the supreme court. They're going to get that either way. She's making the case that it has to be him and she, she says that people's faith in the supreme court would go down if he doesn't make it on the supreme court. This guy that ranted and raved and cry. Ride and sniffles his way through his testimony that if that guy doesn't get on people's respect and trust in the supreme court will be irreparably harmed. I have those fears. I have concerns about the legitimacy of the supreme court, and I think a lot of people do, but they don't run in the direction that she seems to think that they do. Okay. So let's move on then. Jeff, flake, Susan Collins, voting in support of cavenaugh. Lisa Murkowski says that she won't, and she said that early enough of the day that it provided, I guess some hope maybe that if others pylon we can actually stop him and we were talking about how late in the game. Susan Collins was with our speech when she finally announced that she wouldn't support him. There was one person who came out afterward that was Joe mansion bold strong Senator waiting until he knows exactly where all the other swing boats are going out and tweets, I will vote to support supreme court nominee judge Brett Cavanaugh. Yeah, I understand why he calls himself a democrat. I've never, I don't under- there's a long stand it. It's a weird in West Virginia. Like there's a lot of legacy Democrats opposing as being the people that you voted for. For example, like in the south specifically like there was a long tail of the civil war that resulted in Democrats in name being voted for and like the Georgia had democratic governor until whatever it was two thousand four. And the only reason that if flipped finally the full realignment of the dying, dog of the old south happened was because the sitting governor didn't eliminate, but reduce the size of the confederate flag on the state flag. There's a lot of legacy stuff. Yeah, I think in the media and just in general, he's kind of talked about is this bipartisan politician in this red area, but I don't think history has shown that. I mean, when it comes down to like the healthcare, He's he's on on our side. our side. Okay. You know, and he and he doesn't very Joe mansion way. I mean, he's it's tough to be. Joe mentioned. I know that he gets a lot of flack and it is difficult to be a democrat in West Virginia is it is to be elected Senator, but I don't think it was difficult. So like the whole time this has been talked about as he is thinking about his future. Can he win in November, he's being challenged. Obviously there's a Republican run against him. It ain't that close that close that this is what he needed to do. And it's interesting to consider. One of Susan Collins had come out and said that she was voting against him. What do you have chosen to be the deciding vote that puts Cavanaugh on the supreme court over the opposition of the two Republican female senators? I don't know. But at the end of the day, he is voting support even though he really does not need to choosing to, he was sweating for sure. He was sweating all day swimming..

From Alaska two, Republican senators who are constantly thought to be on the bubble. And whenever there is a judicial nominee for any position. But especially the supreme court. I if there is any it is said that if there is any too soon. This indication that that nominee might not be thinking the right way at abortion, and Susan Collins and Murkowski will vote with Democrats to kill the nomination. And because of this the Democrats are constantly applying pressure to both of them, and they have been working overtime to try to pressure. Susan Collins to commit to voting against cavenaugh because of their claims that he would reverse Roe versus Wade, and all of paranoia that the Democrats have and she resisted so the next thing they did they created a gofundme campaign for a phantom candidate to oppose her. In the Senate campaign for main in that that that gofundme campaign or however, they funded it reached a million dollars. They were trying to blackmail her. They were telling her if you will commit to voting against Cavanaugh, then we'll pull this money out of the race against you. And we will not assist a candidate who opposes you. She didn't she didn't book to that. When that failed they sent her and I'm not making this up. But I'm sorry. I have to tell you, but they sent her a three foot cardboard cutout of male genitalia. In another attempt to I I don't know what a bully her or offender, and she said, this is it I've had enough of this. I'm had enough of these anti cabin on tactics. So that Susan Collins, and she has been as I say the target for much bullying manipulation by the left. So she she sent a tweet out a little over an hour ago. Her tweet says I'm writing to the chairman and ranking member of the judiciary committee that that would be Grassley and Feinstein, I'm writing to the chairman and ranking member to judiciary committee respectfully recommending that at Monday's hearing lawyers for professor Ford be allocated time to question judge Cavanaugh and lawyers for judge Cavanaugh. Be granted equal time to question. Professor Ford followed by questions from senators. My first reaction when I saw that was why don't we just cash in chips now and say the country as we knew it is over. We're now officially the Jerry Springer show in the United States Senate. Or or take your pick. Whatever daytime soap opera fair that people. Why are we serious about this? That lawyers for professor Ford be allowed time to question Cavanaugh, and that his lawyers be allowed time to question her way. She still has not responded the invitation to show up this thing on Monday. I think they ought to bag this and just do the vote on Thursday to hell with it. Just bag it and do it. But they won't because they're afraid of losing it now. But that doesn't matter the committee vote doesn't matter. Mitch McConnell can schedule a full Senate vote on this nominee without the committee voting. You know, protocol of the judiciary committee has a vote, and then that's supposed to inform the rest of the Senate that it's okay vote for the guy or that. They shouldn't. I mean, that's how silly it is the judiciary committee votes, not going to determine how people in the general population of the Senate vote, but. We're actually because somebody sent a letter to Dianne Feinstein. We're going to do all that. We're we're going to have a circus on Monday and code pink, and every leftist protest groups going to be in there. If you remember the embarrassment that happen during the confirmation hearings for four days Kavanagh's parents with their heads in their hands in a moment that. Any other time in American history would be one of the proudest most glorious days for an American family. That one of their children had succeeded and achieved in life to the point being nominated to be an associate Justice on the United States Supreme court, and it was turned into. Circus is not even the right way to describe what they did with the Democrats acquiescence and letting it happen. I am certain. What should have been a moment of great, pride and. Overwhelming. Love and excitement was was turned into a. Despicable. Embarrassing. Spectacle. That was beneath all of the decency. This country is known for. And it was by design if they allowed that to happen during confirmation hearings. Can you imagine what this thing on Monday would become? So lawyers interrogate her and other lawyers interrogate him. Nominee to be on the United States Supreme court an allegation that her lawyers say she doesn't even have to prove. And then after all that blowhard senators get their turn asking questions Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer, dick Turpin. Susan Collins VIN tweeted such an approach would provide more continuity. It would elicit the most information and allow an in-depth examination of the allegations. That is just. Whatever.

I mean, that's how silly it is the judiciary committee votes, not going to determine how people in the general population of the Senate vote, but. We're actually because somebody said a letter to Dianne Feinstein. We're going to do all that we're we're gonna have a circus on Monday and code pink, and every leftist protest groups going to be in there. If you remember the embarrassment that happened during the confirmation hearings for four days Kavanagh's parents with their heads in their hands in a moment that. Any other time in American history would be one of the proudest most glorious days for an American family. That one of their children had succeeded and achieved in life to the point being nominated to be an associate Justice on the United States of Precourt. And it was turned into. Circus is not even the right way to describe what they did with the Democrats acquiescence in and letting it happen. I am certain. What should have been a moment of great, pride and. Overwhelming. Love and excitement was was turned into a. Despicable. Embarrassing. Spectacle. That was beneath all of the decency. This country is known for. And it was by design if they allowed that to happen during confirmation hearings. Can you imagine what this thing on Monday would become? So lawyers interrogate her and other lawyers interrogate him. As a nominee to be on the United States Supreme court and allegation that her lawyer says she doesn't even have to prove. And then after all that blowhard senators get their turn asking questions Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer, dick Turpin. Susan Collins, then tweeted such an approach would provide more continuity. It would elicit the most information and allow an in-depth examination of the allegations. That is just. Whatever it is. It is a gigantic comedown Eddie rate. All this notwithstanding hurt tweet probably will send the Democrats into orbit with rage because they were counting on flipping her. They were counting on her saying before this even began she's had enough. This is the last straw. I can't support the guy look at what's being said I can't possibly, but that's what they were hoping Collins would say now she wants to. See a circus. Kavanagh's lawyer hired a lawyer, I should tell you this. Brent was hired Beth Wilkinson. Does the neighboring about who Beth Wilkinson is a she's the wife of David Gregory. Of CNN slash NBC. Be she represented Hillary Clinton staffers during the FBI investigation into Clinton's private server. Those staffers were Cheryl mills, Jake Sullivan, Heather Samuelsson, Philippe Reines. She's also said to be a stellar lawyer. And apparently one of her specialties is defamation. Attacking and defending defamation. Which is exactly what this is. This is an upfront attempt to defame and destroy Rhett Cavanaugh, so say yesterday, you know, we we oppose some of the nominees Democrats put forward, when's the last time you remember anybody on our side trying to literally destroy the life and career and reputation of a political opponent any more so than they already had. Bill Clinton was evidence. He did nothing was made up. And all those people defending Bill Clinton saying it doesn't matter. It's just sex Hillary Clinton, and all these other people responsible for trashing these women that came forward are. Now, the same people claiming that Cavanaugh is scum. And that this woman who's never said a word about any of this for thirty six years is eminently believable. After take another break. And I promise we'll come back and resume with the phones. Because a lot of people wanna way..
