And then I found AARP pushing it and I thought how could that possibly be well I learned my lesson because they're not really for you.

"Well Justice Thomas, his extraordinary He he is one of the greatest justices who's ever lived and he's someone who I know very very well Justice Alito is extraordinary the those are the two that are head and shoulders above everyone else on the current court. And you know the book one vote away it starts with the death of Justice Scalia. And Justice Scalia died in of Twenty Sixteen and actually that day I was in South Carolina was right in the middle of the presidential campaign. And I was with my debate prep team. We're getting ready for a debate the debate and south, Carolina was that evening and so we're huddled in this glass conference room where preparing for for the debate. And and my body. Guy Bruce who you've met Bruce comes in. and. He says, have you heard about the thing? And we're like, what thing? and. He goes to school year thing we're like what Scalia thing he said he died we're GONNA watch. And it turned out the sheriff in West Texas where Justice Scalia had died had just found his body. And the sheriff called me any call John Cornyn to inform us, and this is before the news was public. And so we spent the next couple of hours. Go you know really reeling with the news, but also laying out a strategy for how to deal with it and so as soon as the news went public? I called on the Senate. Not to take up any vacancy, but rather to let the voters decide and the reason for that is Obama. Was a Democrat was gonNA nominate liberal judicial activists and the American people that elected a Republican majority in the Senate to stop liberal judicial activists and. As as I describe in the book one vote away when I called for it. We ended up seeing other Republican senators calling for it shortly thereafter, including Chuck Grassley the chairman of the Judiciary Committee including Mitch McConnell and it's very interesting Mitch's former chief of staff..

"The country in the world didn't know who the next president was to be. I think we could see much much worse this year instead of just one state Florida I think Biden if he loses could challenge in three, four, five states simultaneously. We could see chaos. You know there's this group I'm sure you know about called the transition integrity project. And it's a group of Biden supporters hard. Democrats and leftist but graybeards in the Democratic Party, and then also a bunch of Republicans who are never trumpers who hate president also so they're almost all Biden supporters. And they ran through what they called wargames about the election and they had John Podesta play Joe Biden now John Podesta as you know was bill. Clinton's chief of staff. He was Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman. So Badescu Podesta's a respected figure in the Democratic Party. He played Joe Biden in the scenario that they labeled clear trump victory. So clear win. What Podesta playing Biden did was challenged the outcome of the election get democratic states to send electors who voted for Biden even though the people in the states didn't vote for Biden and actually in this scenario, they had three states, California Oregon and Washington try to secede from the country it is we could be facing real chaos I and it's why we need a nine justice Supreme Court I agree with you. We're in fact, I have a special tonight going through those actual transcripts to show the American people These are radicals that will not accept no for an answer Ted Cruz. Thank you very much ted. Cruz. His new book is out today. It is one vote away a single supreme court seat can change history a lot of behind the scenes. The Best of the Glenn. Beck program. You are, of course, a columnist for the New York Post national political reporter for the Washington Examiner Co author of the Great Revolt, which. Talked about the first race in two, thousand sixteen and what the media missed. What are you feeling today about to throw up? I'm so nervous. Right, now, I totally get that I. also feel you know sort of you know like racy hard kind of anxieties feeling. That's pretty normal especially if you are political junkie like you and I are but. More surely, Americans are not obsessed. You would think they were based on the constant coverage on on cable news and or on on social media that you know most people do not live and die by American politics I think that going into this evening the onus is on Joe Biden to do a number of things too either wind voters over earn someone's vote or. Possibly going to lose votes not necessarily that will go to trump but people will take a look at him and saying depends on what Lanier and they could look at him and say a number of things I suppose he's far left or he's too moderate but the Serb problem, and this is one people are sort of anticipating is that he's not on his game anymore and that he has lost a step, I don't think that gaffes or his problems I think that his problem is saying things like she wants to in a stark black college which he did not those are not gas those are problems. But also don't you I think there's a lot of people that that I've talked to at least that are voting for Donald. Trump, are being for Joe Biden and they they say, well, he's not part of the hard left. So if he if he looks like he's part of the hard left, that's a problem..

"Another example is religious liberty. Religious Liberty. Cases I talk about the case of an ordained versus Perry in. Texas. Where I defended the Ten Commandments Monument on the state capitol grounds, it's been there since nineteen sixty, one, an atheist, a homeless man filed a lawsuit seeking to tear it down. We went to the Supreme Court and we won five four. There were four justices ready to say bring out the bulldozers knockouts knockdown the monument. And we're only one justice away from from losing religious liberty. That's true on right after right after right Horrifying. Now, he would just gather together ANTIFA and black lives matter and they would just put ropes around and pull it down. But in those days I, guess he was a bit more civilized. Well Y- you may well be right and and look you. You look at cases right now. we're seeing politicians that typically democratic politicians abusing their power and targeting religious liberty targeting churches, ordering churches to shutdown California Gavin Newsom, banning you from singing at Church and and and cases have gone to the Supreme Court a couple of times saying thing listen you can't treat. Religious Liberty Worse than everything else you can't allow protests and shutdown church churches. You've got to be even handed. You can't discriminate against people of faith. The Supreme Court rejected those claims five four with John. Roberts sadly, voting with the Liberals That's fundamentally wrong the the First Amendment protects religious liberty and and what these left wing politicians are doing persecuting churches is wrong and it's unconstitutional. Senator Ted Cruz is our guest. Senator I'm curious your written this book one vote away. How supreme how a single Supreme Court seat can change history? What is your writing process you a pen and paper guide? Do you bang it out on the keys? Do you dictate what do you do? You. Know actually I worked with a young lawyer and writer Fella named Josh Hammers very talented. He was a law clerk for for judge, Jim Ho and and is a very talented young lawyer. And hand we would get on the phone and he would record the conversations and and I would essentially dictate. Each chapter we did I just sort of pay up and down my living room and dictate a chapter. It take an hour or two to dictate a chapter where I tell the inside war stories what was really going on and Bush versus Gore what was really going on in Heller versus. District of Columbia the big Second Amendment case that I represented thirty one states and so I tell the war stories and analyze it. He would transcribe what I dictated and Josh would would edit it and then and and clean it up a little bit and he's very talented and so he improved the text. He would then send it back to me and and and then starting from that that text I would then edited pretty vigorously and go back and forth and sometimes I'd ask him you know, hey, own research this or go research that southern sort of be follow ups. But we basically go back and forth and and that's that's where the Texaco came from..

Political battle ensues over RBG replacement

"As the country continues to mourn Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. There's a political battle brewing over when and how her replacement should be chosen. Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar was asked on CNN's state of the union if Democrats have the ability to block a vote to fill her seat. Whatever Mitch McConnell does right now, my Republican colleagues Understand that the voters are voting, and a number of them have already said that the next president, whoever wins should be able to pick the justice Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz explains to ABC is this week why it's important to hold hearings before the election. Unequally divided Court for four can't decide anything that could make this presidential election drag on weeks and months and well into next year. That is an intolerable situation for the country. We need a full court. On Election Day. A second Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, has joined Senator Susan Collins of Maine in opposing efforts to fill Ginsberg seat before the next president is elected President. Trump says he intends to nominate a woman to re plate Ginsberg, possibly this week. Former vice president Joe Biden spoke about the Supreme Court vacancy. During the speech in Philadelphia. Today, he blasted President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for moving within an hour of Justice Ginsburg Ginsberg's death To announce it would nominate and vote on a replacement against her dying wish is this appointment isn't about the past. It's about the future and the people of this nation. The people of this nation are choosing their future right now is they vote? Jam this nomination through the Senate. Just exercise in raw political power. I don't believe the people of this nation will stand for.

Trump unveils list of possible Supreme Court picks if reelected

"All right. Amid the uproar over the president's pandemic response, A new item appeared on the White House schedule yesterday, and it was very clearly a change of subject. I am announcing 20 additions to my original list. Of candidates for the United States Supreme Court That list served him well and energizing conservatives. Back in 2016, NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg reports on what he is offering in 2020. Administration insiders, Khun See that this list of 20 names is a validly more political. While the previous three lists included just one elected politician and no administration officials, this one includes three U. S. Senators all fire breathing conservative Republicans, Arkansas's Tom Cotton. Ted Cruz of Texas and Missouri's Josh Holly. All three have directly or indirectly criticized Chief Justice John Roberts for not being conservative enough, and all three have presidential ambitions. Indeed, Holly tweeted that he's not really interested in a seat on the court. Also on the list are a top White House lawyer and to top officials from the Trump Justice Department, including former solicitor General Noel Francisco who've carried Trump's legal banner in the courts. Perhaps the most interesting name on the list is Paul Clement, who served as solicitor general in the George W. Bush administration and is considered perhaps the best legal advocate among the very able lawyers who practice regularly before the Supreme Court. Clement has an added value. He's represented a variety of conservative interests before the court from gun rights advocates to religious groups to groups opposed to Obama care. As for federal judges on the list, they're all trump appointees with records hostel through abortion, voting rights legislation, LGBT rights and regulation of business and the environment. According to sources involved in compiling the list. The White House counsel, as is usual, presided over the process. But White House chief of staff Mark Meadows was aggressively involved and even the president's son in law. Jared Kushner, got into the act, as did some conservative senators like Holly, who pushed back against including Federal appeals court judge Naomi Row because of some of her writings prior to becoming a judge, But as a judge, she's written some of the lower court decisions most supportive of Trump. With the latest list of 20 new names now added to the 45 names on his previous lists. Trump on Wednesday blasted Democrat Joe Biden for failing to release a comparable list and the president issued a dark warning about the future. If Biden is elected and has an opportunity to pick one or more justices, radical justices will erase the Second Amendment. Silence political speech and require taxpayers to fund extremely term abortion. In fact, the courts five conservative justices are all in good health and two of them. Trump appointees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh are the youngest members of the court at 53 55, respectively. The only ailing justices 87 year old Ruth Bader Ginsburg, leader of the court's liberal wing, who's being treated for 1/5 bout with cancer, her second cancer in less than two years. Should she leave the court. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell has said that the GOP would fill the sea even though McConnell four years ago refused for nearly a year. To allow hearings on President Obama's nominee to fill the seat of Justice Antonin Scalia, who died unexpectedly in February of 2016. McConnell's justification for blocking the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland was that the voters have a right to make their views known in the presidential election. A rationale that GOP leader is not embracing this year. Nina Totenberg NPR NEWS Washington

Republican Jewish Coalition official makes the Jewish case for the Republican party

"As the Republican National Convention dominated the news this week I sat down with Matt Brooks the Executive Director of the Republican Jewish coalition to hear him make the Jewish case for the Republican. Party. Just a reminder AJC is a five. Oh, one C. Three, not for profit organization that neither endorses nor opposes candidates for Elective Office Matt. Thank you so much for joining US Saffy. It's great to be with you. Thanks for having me AJC held a series of virtual programs last week at the Democratic National Convention and we're doing the same this week alongside the RNC you spoke at. An Age RNC program yesterday and you guaranteed the Donald Trump will win a larger percentage of Jewish vote in two thousand twenty than he did in two thousand sixteen. What makes you so confident of that first of all, my understanding of the politics of the Jewish community I've been doing this job for thirty years. So I think I have a very good feel for the Jewish community. But then the most important reason is to look at the record of this president There is no question that he has been without a doubt, the most pro Israel president ever in history. That's not coming just from Matt Brooks, but it's coming from people like the prime, minister of Israel has said as much in the Oval Office in meeting with them. So there's a reason why fifty six percent of the Israelis who were polled in a recent poll would like to see president trump reelected and only sixteen percent. WanNa see Joe Biden reelected because they understand that this president is absolutely transformed the US's relationship beyond that Steph. Touch on domestic issues I think people in the Jewish community are deeply concerned about what's happening in our big cities whether it's Portland Seattle New, York, the lawlessness, the rioting, the efforts by the left wing progressives in the Democratic Party who want to defend the police. I. Think People in the Jewish community understand that president trump giving his incredible track record. Pre covid is the best person to revitalize our economy postcode and also recreate and bring back all the jobs that were lost as a result of this pandemic. So I think there's a wide range. Of issues that both foreign and domestic that to me give me great confidence to have my back moment point into the stands and guarantee that this president will do better among Jewish voters and twenty twenty than he did in two thousand sixteen was the Yankee Fan I. Appreciate any reference to Babe Ruth let me just follow up on that though you pivoted and spoke about domestic issues at the end, which obviously are very important. You started out with Israel though I'm curious does the RJ see any kind of polling or anything like that indicates that the? Percentage of American Jews do vote based on. Israel. My sense is generally not at top issue for American Jews. So we do have extensive polling and we're very data driven in our messaging and how we look at the races you know, I think your point is well taken but you know elections and campaigns about mosaics. It's about putting pieces of the puzzle together. It's not just one issue. There is definitely a segment of the Jewish community that does care about Israel we're going to appeal to them. There's definitely a segment of the Jewish community that appealed issues. Like school choice we're going to appeal to them. There's definitely segments of the Jewish community the care about the issue of defunding the police and having law and order in our streets in protecting us against anti-semitism. So we're GONNA have various messages targeted to various constituencies within the Jewish community. Our community as you well know is not monolithic. So to say that there is one issue that's gonNA drive the Jewish vote would be a mistake but I think we have enough experience and expertise in this arena to make sure that we're serving up the right messages. One issue that you just mentioned Matt is is Antisemitism Joe. Biden actually laid the cornerstone of his campaign on President Trump's comments after the unite the right rally in Charlottesville in his video announcing his candidacy, and then again last week when he accepted the nomination, vice president. Biden cited the president's very fine people on both sides comment at which he saw as excusing anti Semitism he cited those comments as motivating him to get into the race to beat the president. How would you want Jewish voters to think about those comments? Well, I, mean, that's going to be part of our task and we've had several events both with Nikki Haley Mark Levin with Senator Ted Cruz just this last Sunday night you know in which we've talked about that there is a mythology that has taken hold by the Democrats to try and create a false narrative that the president Or somehow tried to give support to white nationalist. If anybody takes a step back reads the entire transcript and admittedly I wish he had been clearer and less awkward in his original remarks when we put out a statement to that effect. But if you read a few sentences before and a few sentences after very fine people on both sides, it's very clear that the president strongly condemns White Nationalist Neo Nazis, and you know it is absolutely unambiguous also to some of his other speeches in actions you go back and look right after the tree of life synagogue tragedy he gave a speech that day to the future farmers of America No. President no president go back and take a look at the record, and you'll agree if you read the opening speech, no president has ever condemned anti-semitism and planted a flag about us and our strong commitment to fight anti-semitism wherever it raises its ugly head, and then obviously you look at what the president did it on his executive order to help protect students on college campuses who have been the victims of anti-semitism and I will tell you time and time. Again, this president has by action demonstrated his commitment, not only to condemn white. Nationalist Neo. Nazis. But also to stand up and take strong stands against the rising antisemitism in this country.

Mike Pence vows to 'make America great again, again

"The Republican see their presidential nominee for twenty twenty four give his first campaign speech last night. The Vice President Mike Prints told his party's national convention that they will make America. Great again again in this election, it's. Not so much whether America will be more conservative or more liberal. More Republican or more Democrat. The choice in this election. is whether America remains America some already looking at him not as a dutiful deputy but as a man maneuvering into position for the next presidential election or watching his speech was Angela, Wilson is professor of politics at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom and the US policy political commentator joins me now a very good morning to you Angela. Good morning so making. America. Great again again, your verdict on that slogan please. Not. Particularly Catchy. Is it. but you know Mike Pence's not not typically known for being done amock or An inspirational speaker so It's not surprising that is His final comment. There was not typically inspiration. What he did say was those it the this election will decide what America becomes A. Thus is something that you could argue happens it absolutely every single election but in particular, he had to try to strike a really really neat balance between. Saying that America can become. Great. Again again. Having obviously gone through the coronavirus pandemic. Yes well for small America is. Completely divided in a way that certain ought never seen in in my observation. American politics over the last fifty years. and this both the Democratic National Convention last week. Republican, one, this week speaks to that division. They are both speaking to very, very different audiences in different voters. and. Mike Pence job. Followed that the that he did last night followed what was seen as a traditional job of the vice presidential candidate in that was first of all to be the attack dog. So at. The convention. The vice president is there to be an attack dog on the other party and he certainly did that in attacking Biden in all sorts of ways we can talk about. And secondly to speak to particular demographics and Mike Pence was chosen originally because he spoke to the Christian right demographic, which makes up about sixty to seventy percent of the Republican Party voters and again, he did that last night pointing out how trump has been a friend in his stood with them. So. So in that sense that he do his job yes he absolutely did his job it. Are we going to see a Mike Pence candidacy in twenty twenty, four, I suspect he will try but I don't really think he'll get that far. Let's have a look then at the attack dog approach that Joe Biden took He's he said, president trump set our nation on a path to freedom and opportunity from the very first day of this administration. He said Joe Biden we'll set America on a path of socialism and decline Frankly I didn't find that as shocking as it could have been because the whole point of the Republican convention has been quite a dark one to sort of warned the United States electorate against forces which could destroy this pasta freedom. Not, least it's also quite easy to say that durbar really isn't that much of a socialist at all. What we all thoughts on on his sort of attack. Biden. His attack on. Biden of interesting lady US Sanders words to attack by saying that. Abidin was going to implement some of the policies that Sanders thought was appropriate and so he used. Sanders words to attack by himself, but the the other areas in which he was able to attack Biden quite effectively keep in mind. He was at a military base when he was given when he was. Giving this this talk was to attack by non law and order and on military defense and those traditional conservative areas but also given the audience that he had that went over very well, and of course, given the context of what's going on. Across American cities that went over very well. So it's attack on Biden. CAPIT- in a way that was. About the military and about law and order, but it was certainly in the theme that had been set out Republican Party. Sorry. The Republican convention already that this was a clear contrast between well. Frankly Gordon Evil and evil being socialism or evil being a lack of law and order in our cities. As. Vice President he has. Trodden, very delicate path. There's a great article in The New York Times which describes his modus operandi and says the cumulative effect of Mr Pence's conduct is to create around him a kind of bubble of relative normalcy in which vice. President. Avoids Mr Trump's most explosive in defensive behaviour mostly by pretending it does not exist and he is getting a reputation as being the man who's accustomed to dialing back in private. What Donald Trump bellows in public is true. Well he certainly set himself office not condemning trump last night but as taking his leadership in in the kind of amusing, insane. Yes. What is different but nevertheless, he is a leader and what what pence is. Is as vice president is to to not a on one hand to not question drunk and trump's leadership and on the other hand to be a bridge between trump's Shall we say missteps? And a community that they absolutely have to have behind in, which is the Christian right voters, and that's a really delicate bridge. To to keep. Those voters on board with trump who's not known for his son shall we say moral? Well. If you have him acting as a bridge, the creator of a bubble keeping the electorate safe I mean, are we looking perhaps at the the the first speech of someone making a bid for the presidency in four years? While, he may have those dreams don't actually think that the Republican Party will be looking to him and twenty twenty four. Mike. Pence is not known for his dynamism is not known for his public speaking I thought it was interesting that they gave him an audience last night and the audience was obviously primed to to jump in. and. Be Shouting four years in that sort of thing. So he's kind of public speaking that definitely needs an audience not doesn't go over very well with the voting public. And secondly, I. Think you know. I if by wins and that still is a big if if Biden wins pence will be marred with the the trump presidency in the legacy of that, and I really think the Republican Party may be looking to someone. In the future that that is that is either completely away from the trump presidency, some light, a Ted, Cruz. Or you know I fully expect one of the leading. Candidates in twenty, four, Maith from trump's family. Tell us a little bit more about the the the parallel narrative what's going on in Wisconsin how much was that brought into day three of the convention. Well what was then what is unfortunate for both conventions that many of these speeches habit to have been taped and what we saw in day three of the convention was not all of the speeches were taped. So therefore, did not mention what was going on in terms of Wisconsin, but also in terms of the hurricane that's dot hit Texas Louisiana. And so Mike Pence's speech did stand out and that was able to address both of those those crisis One of the things you mentioned about what is what is His job here, delicate position that he calls trump various students put pinson charge of the corona virus response, and so he will be able at trump will be able to kind of label if it doesn't go well put that onto pence in his lack of leadership or his. Mistakes made but pence was very clear. Last night in this is one thing that I thought was rather shocking that America will have a vaccine by the end of this year. And that's a promise that certainly scientists star saying that we won't that. He won't be able to keep but he does this under the language of the that this will be a miracle that will happen. Tennis Elizabeth about the general polling figures. Now we've got Joe, Biden, Aheadon, what five or six is a key swing states. This is following the Democratic National Convention, but his numbers didn't rise perhaps as many thought they would and Donald Trump's approval rating has now bumped up particularly among white voters. Yes, I, mean I think previously elections there was a larger contending contented independent voters and so what you would see after the conventions was swaying. For each of the Party of those independent voters. But at the moment America is so divided along party lines that that. That that. Percentage of independent voters is is much smaller. And it's not surprising that at trump's upswing is going to be amongst white voters particularly when does riots happening and the black lives matter movement has put some not a lot. But some white voters concerned about what the future may fly finally Andrew you mentioned a moment ago that you think that the next presidential candidate from the Republicans could another trump who might that be? There's quite a. Rogues Gallery to choose from. Well, you know I grew up watching dynasty and the ewings in in Dallas and I will tell you there's nothing more intriguing than good family fight for leadership and so I think we'll all be interested to watch what happens they`re Both which ones end up running the leadership of the Republican Party and which ones may or may not end up.

"Back on its feet, many movie executives are wondering what some of the administration's tough talk regarding China will do to their relationship with China. Studios have been looking for a greater box office share in China, which right now sits at around 25% compared to about 50% as it is an other nations. What many people don't know, though, is some of the demands that the Chinese Communist Party puts on these movie makers to get a movie into China so it can be seen in that market. I had a chance to catch up with Chris meant, and he's an entertainment industry veteran and author of the book. Feeding the dragon he shares some of the hoops movies have to go through to be played in China, where I have the big problem is when they're giving us cross border censorship.

In the Ted Cruz example, they've asked Paramount to remove the Taiwanese flag. I'm Tom Cruise's jacket in the new top gun movie, not just for their market.

Ted Cruz says President Trump 'absolutely right' to call out mail-in ballot fraud concerns

"Senator Ted Cruz, discussing President Trump's place to stop mail in balloting over claims of voter fraud. When it comes to elections. We want elections to be thanked. We want them to be secure. We want that when you go and captive vote that that vote count and then that the integrity of the election be protected. President Trump is filing a lawsuit against the state of Nevada after it enacted a new law providing mail in ballots, toe all voters. There's no evidence of widespread fraud linked to mail in ballots but concerned about potential abuses, more states are moving to mail in ballots to protect poll workers and voters from Corona virus.

Coronavirus relief bill negotiations continue as benefits set to expire

"Unless Congress takes action, millions of Americans are likely to be evicted from their homes. Berry soon, and this problem is more than just a crisis. This is a crisis that the American people are dealing with, but there's also a crisis when it comes to Congress and how utterly? Our lawmakers are when it comes to providing the economic relief that Americans desperately need so there have been numerous stories published about the number of Americans who are likely to be addicted, but these numbers keep ballooning so for instance last week, the Federal Moratorium on Evictions and also on federally backed mortgages expired, and so there are some states that have implemented their own addiction. Moratoriums but you have to keep in mind. Mind that some states have not done so and we still have tens of millions of Americans who are jobless who lost their healthcare coverage as a result of being laid off in the middle of this pandemic, and then you also have Republicans who refuse to extend the unemployment benefits that were provided under the cares act. That was the additional six hundred dollars a week. That Americans would receive if they filed for unemployment. Unfortunately it seems like there are some members of democratic leadership who were going along with the lies and deceptions that are being message to the American people. So before we get to that I want to share some statistics with you. The Urban Institute estimated. That provisions covered nearly thirty percent of the country's rental units and I'm talking about the Be Moratorium on evictions by one estimate. Some forty million. Americans, could be. During the public health crisis, and of course, this is the most unsurprising part about all of this minority. Groups are the most. Vulnerable when it comes to fiction, so people of Color, according to CNBC are especially vulnerable, while most while almost half of white tenants say they're highly confident. They can continue to pay their rent. Just twenty six percent about african-american tenants could say the same around half. Hispanic tenants said they have little to no confidence. They'll be able to stay in their homes. And if you look at data, state-by-state to see how states are impacted by this. You Look at Louisiana, for instance, fifty percent of ten say that they can no longer afford their rent. A fifty one percent who say that they can't afford their rent in Florida fifty eight percent, in Tennessee fifty nine percent in West Virginia and again Benjamin love for you to jump in the frustration. Here is the utter lack of leadership, not just in in the federal government with the trump administration, but also with Congress right what we're seeing here is just it's. It's shocking, but it's not surprising race. It's almost like the natural combination of how are leadership has been leading the direction. They've been going. They are really pushing the people as far as they possibly can I. Think you are Frankin Clippers stain on. Twitter, said that they're trying to find the very least that they could possibly do without causing a riot, but you know when these numbers start hitting the fan right when people actually are put out of their homes with nowhere to go, and then if they if they're lucky enough to get in a homeless shelter night, we do not have the capacity to house. All of these people in the homeless shelters across this country, but even in that scenario they would then be exposing their families to covid nineteen. This is not something that's but the fact that they're playing chicken and taking it. All the way to the wire is is disgusting. Absolutely, so you have the moratorium on fictions on one hand, and then you also have the issue of the unemployment benefits which are set to expire on the last day of July, and so of course, when you hear the rhetoric coming from the Senate Gop, and also from the White, house, there's this live that keeps getting repeated over and over again about how well these unemployment benefits are just too high, and as a result are refusing to go back to work. In fact, one of the Republican senators. Who was her pet? This nonsense was Ted Cruz over the weekend. Let's take a listen to what he had to say. And then I wanNA. Compare what he said to democratic. Leadership Listen. In terms of the unemployment benefits do you object to providing any kind or any amount of federal boosts unemployment at this point, because not everyone is choosing to be out of work. The policy that Nancy Pelosi Democrats are pushing adds an additional six hundred dollars a week of federal money to unemployment. We have unemployment system system. Down, to seventy percent. Problem is for sixty eight percent of people receiving it right now. They are being paid more on unemployment than they made in their job and I'll tell you. I've spoken to small business owners all over the state of Texas. We're trying to reopen and they're calling. Their waiters and waitresses are other busboys, and they won't come back, and of course they won't come back is the federal government is paying in some instances twice as much money to stay home, but APP may, and to a lesser amount. At look at what we ought to focus on instead of just shoveling trillions out the door, we ought to be passing a recovery bill. What's a recovery bill or coverage? Bill would be lifting the taxes and the regulations that are hammering small businesses so that people can go back to work. A recovery bill would suspend the tax which would give a pay raise to everyone in America. WHO's working? That actually gets people back to work.

US Republicans have unveiled a $1 trillion package to kick-start the economy, Democrats call the plan 'inadequate'

US Republicans have unveiled a $1 trillion package to kick-start the economy, Democrats call the plan 'inadequate'

"Republicans have unveiled a trillion dollar package to kick start the country's economy after the damage done by the pandemic Democrats, have already called the plan inadequate. Joining me on the line is Scott Lucas professor of US politics at the University of Birmingham, good morning and welcome to the brim scores. So what are the main feature of this baggage? The headline that will come out of this is not one of actually protecting people. And support, it will actually be the fact that unemployment benefits for millions of Americans who have lost their jobs from Corona virus? Those benefits will be cut by sixty seven percent from six hundred dollars per week to two hundred dollars per week. there is a twelve hundred dollar payment the equivalent of three weeks. Of support that is being lost, but after that. You've got. More than fifty one million Americans who filed unemployment application since mid-march, trying to exist on a lot less money. The Republicans argue well that six hundred a week is a disincentive to return to work, but it seems to be at a time. When Corona virus is resurging in the states of very heavy measure to sort of bludgeoned people back into work places. That may not be safe. Beyond that you do have a lot of protection for business for example protecting them from lawsuits. From workers over Corona virus cases. You do have some more support for small businesses. But you also include some pet projects, the most notable of which is a new FBI building which is almost an obsession of donald trump, probably almost a billion dollars in that gets in there at the same time that those who are trying to get by week-to-week are not going to be helped by this measure. Do. You think this is one of the United States needs at least moments, well I think it's a reality in without playing party politics. We've got to say look is the fact is is that as the pandemic is not only continuing but surging in the United States? It gets more and more expensive to try to deal with the economic effects. You have already had to support packages worth a total about five trillion. This would be the third. The Democrats want three trillion rather than one trillion to fully protect people in other words. The bottom line here is is that the ultimate protection from Corona virus not just for lives. Not just for families affected by the loss of lives, but for the US economy is to get the virus under control, and the administration has singularly failed to do that when you have coronavirus cases that are researching and forty-one and fifty days looking at then, what's the Democrats? Won't so you already mentioned that? The Republicans want to cut unemployment benefits and the Democrats would also want to spend moist. There's something. Something else that Democrats. Also what will the Democrats want to maintain The unemployment benefit through the end of twenty twenty at the current level beyond that, however the Democrats want more money for test trace to contain corona virus, and the White House has held out against that because more money for testing trace exposes Donald Trump's claim that less testing means less cases. So why don't we just go that path? The Democrats also. One did not want to see liability protection for businesses. They think that's the wrong priority. Instead the money should be put into community development, getting more people into the workplace on a community basis in a safe way, and there's also another big difference in this that reflects trump's priorities, and that is that the Republicans, rather than providing unemployment benefits rather than trying to build up the safety net or providing tens of billions of. Of Dollars for schools that reopened with full class instruction from next month. The problem with that Donald Trump may be demanding that there is no online instruction at schools, but medical experts say it poses a threat to staff to children and to their parents. It also sounds like Americans can expect too. Many Americans can expect to receive some some chicks also as a financial stimulus something that is a donald trump approach as well. It's two things. One is okay. We dangled twelve hundred dollars to you and let's say if it's my parents. In a WHO retirees it's up and they'll be eager to vote for trump in November because they just got more money, but I come back to the basic point. If you're unemployed and again more than fifty one million Americans filed unemployment applications that twelve hundred dollars direct payment only covers you for three weeks of lost money from the fact that you're having declined benefit until you can find another job, so it's sort of more of A. A token effort by the Republicans doesn't really deal with the long-term economic situation, and really exposes I think the bottom line for the administration, which is even yesterday, Larry, cudlow the White House is top economic advisor was saying when we are having more than a thousand deaths today in the United States when we're now more than four point three million cases. It's okay we're on a v-shaped recovery. Guess what folks we're not, and we won't be recovered by November, when Donald Trump has his priority, which is getting a second term in office. Exactly, SCOTT'S A. Nice Republicans are they all united behind these plan? No their their blood, and in five. This is something that causes further complications. They can't just point at the Democrats and say Oh. Boo to you. You won't support our measures a number of leading Senate Republicans. Including the two thousand sixteen presidential candidate Ted Cruz have said they will not accept any stimulus package. That's it no more money for anything. Graham Donald. Trump's front has warned that there's opposition to any package and the confusion knots Republicans with so great that as the bill was unveiled yesterday. Senate leader Mitch McConnell the most important. Republican in the Chamber did not know that the measure still included the seven hundred and fifty million dollars for the new FBI building. What will happen next with this plan? Won't pass. The House remember the House Democrats have already passed their three trillion. Dollar stimulus package and they're going to say look. That's the one you have to deal that your baseline. Mark Meadows the White House Chief of Staff Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. We're meeting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer last night, so no deal with our plan, but the idea of slashing unemployment benefits by almost seventy percent of while protecting businesses from lawsuits. That's a no go for Democrats, so I fear. What you see is that as the unemployment benefits expire this week, you might have a short term extension. Of those benefits, but the Democrats will insist that it six hundred dollars per week. If the Republicans don't assist on that, this bill of theirs will not pass, and all those Americans who have been out of work, get nothing house of next week, and what to expect to happen with the US economy. The US economy is going to continue to. Be Stagnant and probably go downwards. Again, bottom line. Not Revive an economy. You cannot reopen as Donald Trump wants to say we'll save. America will be hashed had winning unless you contain corona virus, and the United States does not have output test. Try Test, trace and track measures to safely reopen. And therefore provide economic recovery that trump desperately wants within the next one hundred days, and what kind of a? East this for Donald Trump does he need to emerge from all this as as a winner to succeed the November presidential election? I'm going to be honest with you. Marcus I. don't Care What happens with Donald Trump being a winner. Don't care with Donald Trump's ego. Donald Trump needs to be put into a room away from all of this, because the hard graph that needs to be done, and this is beyond Republicans Democrats they do need to come together to talk about surviving this economic downturn about getting control of the virus, and when you have Donald, trump who? Is Unpredictable. Who is chaotic? Who is not exactly? Up to speed on what is happening he just stands in the way of anything productive whatever happens in November.

How do you keep city safe in terms of how it operates under the law? The first line of Defense are police officers. It's why I'm so vigorous and saying don't undermine our cops. Let law enforcement do its job. We've seen a lot of democratic politicians, basically saying police officers hands behind their back, preventing them from keeping cities safe, and so the first line of a line of defense are the police. The Second Line of Defense is the national. National Guard, and so if the police are overwhelmed, you can call up the National Guard that provides an additional wave of strength and the military is available look, there is a long tradition of the military in the case of violent insurrection, in case of a of a variety coming in, but but the military is the third and final step and and so I think there's some Republican politicians that are showing how tough they are by saying. Send in the Marines on day. One well. Look look if we need to. Yes, we need to do whatever is needed to keep people safe, but but let's start with.

I want to get your thoughts on the likelihood of that. I want to get your strategy on the the last questions. Today there were some reports coming out that John Barrosso the number three Republican in the Senate says that the momentum is heading heading in the direction of not calling additional witnesses there are other reports that we might get a fifty fifty vote perfectly split in which case I want to know who breaks the tie you know it's an open question It is close right now We need fifty one votes to definitively say the trial is done. Don't need additional witnesses. Let's move onto final judgment. We have fifty one votes. We can wrap this up in the next couple of days If we don't and I hope the momentum going that way as Wiz we talked about in the last podcast I think they're at least two Republicans who are pretty clearly gonNa vote with the Democrats Mitt Romney Susan Collins that means they have forty nine votes. There are the two next most likely or Lisa Murkowski and Lamar Alexander. I don't know where they're going to be. They're very they're holding their cards very close to the vest They could end up on either side of that and I think they're considering it carefully. They seem to be genuinely struggling with this decision if it ends up. Fifty fifty eighty. We're in a little bit of uncharted territory under the scheduling order. We adopted I think Republican leadership's argument would be fifty fifty means. Witnesses are not in order in other words. Let's move on right. Can't have additional witnesses. Okay I am certain that the Democrats will argue if it's fifty fifty. It means witnesses are in order so decides them who knows. Look.

"But you've got plenty roots at least family in Lubbock. That's correct. Here in Lubbock. He didn't even call me. Bob. Sorry. One of us was to make that you went to like a tech graduation or something. Beddoe rally Amrullah Lubbock and see my father in law. David Hester out at Carolina, and that I had to boogie chase Ted Cruz and Beddoe elsewhere in the state sounds like a good excuse Bob Garrett and so. Said lots of folks think that you know, you've got rural Texas buying large expected to go with Ted Cruz. I think that that's why we've seen so many almost say cruise, but I will say Dan Patrick commercials. Can Paxton commercials at expecting rural Texas in not just other whenever I say other side of Texas. I mean like north far North Texas, south, Texas, west Texas, south Texas, expecting these rural voters to help overcome losses in the urban counties. But lots of people say to me, we think the Beddoe Aurore. Ted Cruz race is going to come down to Dallas county. Bob, Garrett Tillis what you're hearing the latest is in Dallas county, so far is turn out. And what do you make the numbers? So far is how it impacts the race. Well, bettle Rourke was telling our reporters last week. He thought the race would be decided in Dallas area. And you hear this a lot that the Democrats believe if they can get sort of a generic democratic vote in Dallas county of sixty two percent, and that would be a reach in twenty sixteen that that that measurement was fifty seven percent that included not just Hillary Clinton down. Ballot democrats. So they need to get a five percents point gain. But if they can do that they think that oh award has a shot statewide. They usually talk about Harris County needing to get that democratic generic vote up into the high fifties. And then the bellwether county Tarrant county the county of my birth. Betto as the break, even or get close forty eight forty nine fifty percent. And then if he can get that trifecta going in Dallas Harris and Tarrant than it's a it's a it's a barn burner. It'll go late that big red vote out in rural Texas will be up against this big blue vote in the city's so and suburbs. So we'll see. Tell me what you make of the turnout this four. I mean, let's expand out you've been covering techs politics for how long. Well, you know, forty years with a twenty year intermission. So yeah. Okay. So eight point three tex- Texas election is something. Nice. I follow on Twitter pretty straight down the line. Not very partisan. They suspect. What others have said that there's an eight point three million turnout in Texas. How does it fair in in a say Lubbock we're talking about Lubbock here in just a moment. But how does that fare with Dallas county Dallas? Here's a caveat. We don't know for sure how the judge early because as you know, more and more people are early fewer and fewer people are voting on election day. So when you have these big growing growing early vote totals they might be a little misleading 'cause you then expect to have a pretty significant turn out on election day, and it might drop. So your overall increased might not be as dramatic having issued that caveat, Mr. lease, and it's big. I mean, the Dallas early vote was huge. And so what eight point three million statewide means in twenty sixteen with the President Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, we had just under nine million votes cast in Texas. So you're talking about nearly presidents your turn out whereas last midterm in Texas. It was four point seven million turn out. And so I've been saying for a long time since I looked at the historical US Senate races in Texas at Beto Aurora. He's gotta get it up in the seven and a half eight and a half million range to be competitive. We've been elected senators with you know, four point six million for John and the John Cornyn race in two thousand fourteen and presidents or years. It goes up to, you know, seven or eight million, and and it has to be at least that I think for Beto to have a chance, but we'll see whether whether the early vote cannibalize the same day..

"Now, it's anyone's guess, obviously as to who's going to win this election. No matter what happens though, I think story of Ted Cruz is ultimately, quite tragic. He was raised almost from birth on the very specific ideals of two different conservative ideologues. Fred Clark and Roland story. Both of these men are now dead and most of their ideals have sort of fallen by the wayside even in mainstream Republicans -ociety, hence, the whole constant expensive wars overseas. Ted cruz. It's almost like he's the political equivalent of some sort of like a I defense system designed by an ancient race. Exciting. Yeah. And then the aliens go there's a Star Trek next generation episode. Mo the lost outpost episode four season one. Sure. And in this episode the enterprise, and if Ranga ship get captured essentially by this planet, that's like there's this defense system on it that was part of an alien empire sixty million years ago or something that since fallen and the AI that runs this defense thing doesn't know that the impairs fallen. That's that's yeah. Ted Cruz operating. Yeah. Fill capacity his systems online. Yes. Still attacking doing damage even though but everyone that wrote the code and he's like slumped dead wrong. Dead wrong tragic. It is tragic, and I think a really accessible reference for for the great episode. Not a great episode. Introduced the farang gay, which were pretty anti semitic. Yeah. Yeah. A little gross little gross. They're I mean, they're Ted Cruz. They are a whole race Ted Cruz. Yeah. Now, that's all I have to say about Ted Cruz, hopefully, ever, hopefully, better will work beats him. And may never have to talk about that. We may never have to talk about the again, part of me imagined is like, okay. So he loses the better aerobic. And I was like, oh, well now I'll find my principles and I'll run against Donald Trump and he'll try to primary him. Oh, man, because he's a principled, man. Who wants you to vote your conscience? Yeah. Like, you said that one time. Totally fooled around. I was I was at the RNC and the one moment in my life. I almost had an inkling of respect for Ted Cruz is when he gave that speech everyone was expecting him to endorse Donald Trump. And then he didn't. But then he did it. Anyway. Sound bears? So shameful vote your conscience show. She handle the guy. Dog. Ted kennedy? Eating that pilots shit and the needing to do that fake smile afterwards. Like, it's not even that he's spineless in that. It said he's such an absence of spine that he lowers the bone density of people around. Yeah. And being back that article about his wife and her trying to spin it positive about stuff and it sat and you can maybe I'm reading between the lines. But I'm not about her lack of respect like she wandered onto the freeway on ramp one night because she had to give up her career to come do this for him. And then it was like, oh, a spiritual person on a Christian retreat was like you put on God to help your husband. I love all that stuff. In his articles about and she's just like, well, like just kind of biting your tongue about her gross spineless husband that she can't possibly be attracted to. No, no. I mean, we're not gonna go into detail. But we can all picture what we would think Ted Cruz would look like during sex, and it's gross. It's gross in it's uncomfortable. And I have to imagine. It's gross and uncomfortable for his wife. I sure oh, yeah. The sex. She did say that. He was. Yes move. And This. this. Here comes the set. Do a sex at you. He's going to sex toward you typically use. All right. This has been behind the bastards. Katie Cody, you guys want to plug the plug levels that you have to plug. Yeah.

"Magin that being the the hill. You wanna die on? Yeah. Yeah. It's kind of a complicated case. But that's sort of what it boils down to form EMI at a. Yeah. Anyway, yes, my soul scathing slowly sliding out of you. That's the Ted Cruz effect now for a long time cruises. Ambition was to become the attorney general at the United States. The rather than getting good with Mitt Romney and try to wangle a job as attorney general if he somehow one and two thousand twelve Ted Cruz made the in retrospect wise decision to run for Senate in two thousand twelve instead one in the primary and that victory was one of the most stunning upsets of the entire year lose essentially swept into office by a wave of tea party sentiment. That was still a big deal back in two thousand twelve he won the general election as well. And just like that Ted Cruz was one step closer to his dream of becoming the president hears. Young Ted Cruz fresh-faced looking good. I mean, that's all very, yes. He's just such a tweet such a deep. I love the pictures of Ted Cruz with a gun. Oh my God. Because he holds a gun like someone who's had them described him before. Right. That's about it. What they are aware of what they have you seen shoot the bacon. Oh god. Yeah. That's a bad so embarrassing. Yeah. Where he's he's trying to cook the Baker. That's like what do you like, wait? And he shoots it instead. No, no. You can cook bacon on a clash on any kind of gun that has a long enough exposed. The big around these shoots it he'd sit up, and then he eats it. And because he's a real Texan, man. I used to live in Texas and did a bunch of shooting, and we would for fun. You do stuff like crack eggs in the receiver of a Kalashnikov or something you'd like line it with foil, and you can cook eggs, you know, a couple of rounds in the eggs will cook. And it's like a fun thing drunk people do on the weekends. Not congressional candidates right to prove your like Texan clout. Like, no, Ted. This is no you're not you're not. It's your Canadian, right? Right. Pay me, okay with that. So the next year after being elected two thousand thirteen Senator Cruz made a name for himself in Washington, and by many accounts, not a good one one of his first moments of prominence was arguing against the women's health protection. Act crew said that this act which would have essentially there was a law in Texas that cut down by like half, the number of abortion clinics that were allowed to be open in the state by putting a new restrictions on them. This was a federal act that was supposed to basically stop that law and stop other laws like that all around the nation. So that women could have more access to safe sexual health care and abortions Ted Cruz called this a manifestation of a war on women, and he claimed Planned Parenthood was unnecessary because there wasn't a shortage rubbers term. He's yes. Rouse, really grow. Sex Hafer has weighed in Ted Cruz actual sex ever. Oh, yeah. Now in late two thousand thirteen Ted Cruz was one of several House Republicans who threatened to the United States that they would shut down the government and refused to pass a new spending Bill if that spending Bill included any money for ObamaCare. Cruise was one of the main architects of the shutdown and he spoke for twenty one hours in order to help delay the vote he read green eggs and ham on the Senate floor for a section of this. Politics is serious business. The two thousand thirteen shutdown lasted seventeen days and cost the United States estimated twenty four billion dollars. Ted cruz. Now, he was not the only Republican, obviously who supported the shutdown not the only Republican who are getting into the women's health protection. Act. One of the things that stands out about Ted Cruz is the sheer vitriol at contempt that he's held in by other Republicans really the thing that's remarkable about him. And it seems to have started with John McCain. So McCain got miffed at Ted during that twenty one hour speech, he gave arguing in favor of the shutdown because crews compared Republicans who voted to approve the spending Bill with Nazi appeasers. You don't know what you're talk you. Go to the nineteen forties. Nazi germany. Look. We saw in Britain Neville Chamberlain who told the British people accept the Nazis. Yes..

"No other classmates at Princeton called college. Crews abrasive arrogant creepy and to crank the Daily Beast notes that four former classmates all independently described him as creepy. That's. Also half of congress, right? Like, you don't even need to say. Like, oh, someone said this is about Ted Cruz. Correct described cruise for second. If there was a vote in congress as to whether or not Ted Cruz was creepy. It would be the only unanimous vote. Our congress has had Ted Cruz would vote. Yes. Finally, finally, some bipartisanship. And if we can't come together on this. Can we agree on the basic Ted Cruz grossest shit, right? Okay. The second floor agree with my colleague, Ted Cruz is absolutely. Stares at me in the bathroom. Yeah. Ted Cruz apparently had a habit of putting on a paisley bathrobe and walking to the other end of the dorm. We're all the women lived and just sort of hanging out there now now. Yup. No. That's what Craig Mazin says I would end up fielding the girls complaints. Could you please keep your roommate out of our hallway? Ted Cruz now crews played poker regularly with a group of upperclassmen. It was apparently just as bad at that. As he is at stuff, he wound up owing eighteen hundred dollars in nineteen eighties money to several stupid. Wow. That's a lot a lot of money like six grand today like college. Yeah. Call it insane amount of money. Yeah. It's crazy now. Ted Cruz is campaign spokesman, and he doesn't fifteen was asked about Ted Cruz being terrible at poker. And she confirmed that Senator Cruz once had a quote foolish poker problem. He went to his aunt who worked at a Bank in Dallas and borrowed eighteen hundred dollars from her which he paid in cash and promptly quit the game. Here's spokeswoman claims that he worked two jobs and gradually paid his off over the next two years fiscal responsibility ability more than he shown as a congressman which we'll get to us. Then. Now in general, it seems like the kids who were in debate club with Cruz actually did like him and everybody else kind of hated him. His debate partner speaks particularly well of Ted Cruz, quote, I considered to be very kind. He is a very very gentle hearted person. He took me under his wing and was a mentor to me. He was very kind to me. I am a much smarter and much better person today because if Ted Cruz what did he want? I don't know, you know, it seems like some people did like him. I think it's probably just that like that kind of relationship that he like some people are looking for that kind of relationship and Ted Cruz only response that kind of relationship like, he's sizing. Everybody up your useless to me. I think you're beneath me some not gonna treat. Well this. Oh, I can mentor working together. Yeah. I can I can indoctrinate him. And he's a debate. Could who's never off other debate kids who were never off probably get along with them. Yeah. So one thing. No one denies that. Ted Cruz was exceptionally good at speech and debate. He won a bunch of stuff. Here's how the Daily Beast -scribed his place in that community debate weekends included Friday night parties that cruise off and attended where he. Was remembered to be sort of a stud with girls on the debate circuit. Princeton debaters also said he spent extra time mentoring them to improve their skills. Even though they competed against each other Ted Cruz dollars. That's nice pretty much everyone. Whether they loved or hated Ted Cruz agrees that he has not changed at all since he was a teenager after graduation. Ted attended Harvard Law School and pretty much immediately got into government work. He was the first Hispanic solicitor general of Texas and also the longest serving solicitor general of Texas from two thousand and three to two thousand eight he argued in front of the supreme court a number of times, including to defend a ten commandments monument at the Austin state capital. His proudest moment was arguing meeting versus Texas before the supreme court, which defended that state of Texas is right to execute a Mexican citizen without letting him talk to his consulate..

"Right of the Valkyries blaring out of the car stare. Does. He popular includes getting beat up. Yeah. I think so it's attention. Okay. So now we connect here. I'm well known for getting beat up on wellnigh at two AM. Also, I mean, I will say a lot of people listen to ride of the Valkyries, we'll doing various things. Sure, the choice of honor. Yeah. Yeah. Little fashion. But maybe not in those days, though. Maybe not in those days, people aren't aware. People are no Apocalypse Now. Would just come out. Maybe that's it. Yes. Ted Cruz, a big film puff he likes art. So I'm sure that he was really he doesn't joy in ice. Art likes to eat it. I'm a fan of the art. Many of Cruise's former fellow students and teachers do agree that Ted Cruz was widely seen as very intelligent and gifted was the valedictorian of his class in one thousand nine hundred eight he was always outspoken conservative and always clear that his goal in life was to get into politics. It seems like rather than becoming popular by acting less. Nerdy. Cruz actually gained most of what popularity he did have from his nerdiness. Second Baptist was a big speech and debate school and Ted Cruz was fantastic debater. Speaking of someone who was in speech and debate in Texas. It is definitely a community that attracts outspoken annoying opinionated conservative kids, which I was when I was Ted Cruz age in an Texan high school. So I can guess what a lot of those conversations were. Yeah. Yeah. Now when he graduated in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight seventeen year old Ted Cruz wrote this description of his hopes and dreams in his yearbook upon graduation, Ted hopes to attend Princeton University in major in political science and economics from there. He wants to attend law school possibly Harvard and achieve a successful law practice he then wants to pursue his real goal. A career in politics, Ted like to run for various political offices and eventually achieve strong enough reputation and track record to run for and win. President of the United States presidency has been Ted Cruz golden the very beginning maniac. Yeah. That's all. Yeah. I mean, I was a sixteen year old conservative debater who wanted to be the president. And then I became an eighteen year old who had to pay rent and realize that wasn't a job. A good person. Once also like this video of him from high school. I think if that's gonna get into. Yeah. So in a video filmed in one thousand nine hundred right after graduation. Ted Cruz lays out his ambitions in a much less polished fashion, and we're just going to play this whole video for y'all. Have you both seen this now? Oh, good. Katie. I'm excited for this. Cody, I love it. Just can't wait live through it again. So let's listen to eighteen year old Ted Cruz talk about his hopes and dreams, Katie. I think you should be able to at least see him because he's he's a character. Went on my. What you want me to do what I wanna do in life. Well. Do. On my guy play rate. Well. Roll everything powerful. That was of course, a fake Ted Cruz campaign ad using that now normally it would be unfair. I did worse stuff than that. When I was eighteen. Oh, yeah. I don't want anyone seeing the videos I made when I was eighteen. No, no, no. The thing. That's interesting about this is that this is probably the best thing. Ted Cruz ever did from a moral standpoint shares he's not actively harming anyone in that video other than perhaps for the camera man, right? So Ted did get to go to Princeton any went to Harvard after that. But his roommate at Princeton was a guy named Craig Mazin. Now Craig would later go on to write the screenplays for the hangover movie trilogy. Okay. Good on germ, Craig. I guess. Yeah. All right for himself that that took a Princeton education. Interesting way to things do Princeton's. Yeah. For sure. Life's funny like that nothing against it of all of the movies that star, you know, the guy who was sexy for a hot minute. And then he got huge any played that sniper who lied about Jesse the body Ventura. That guy Brad Cooper's. Aw. I thought you does he still alive? He has.

"We're back. We're talking about Ted Cruz and his youth as a constitutional corroborated, but youth and quotes. Ted Cruz was born forty three. Has not changed much since. Now, we're talking about Laura who who just announced that she did not like it. Instant fee. Talked him at one point Laura and her fellow corroborated provided to in American ideas seminar at the state conference center, this is in Houston. They attended classes and lectures about the free market and limited government, one of their most important pieces of curriculum was the ten pillars of economic wisdom's. Yeah. All ties together. Well, Fred Clark. Who wrote those pillars was long dead by this point. And is now so forgotten that I barely found. Anything about him online. His ideas clearly spread to a new generation of young conservative the ten pillars had a profound impact on young Ted Cruz. His favourite pillar was the second. Government is never a source of goods. Everything produced is produced by the people and everything government gives to the people. It must I take from the people. Well, like, you don't know when the government builds roads, they take roads from you. And you don't you have less roads. But the government has more like when the government provides an ambulance after you're in a car wreck you have less ambulances. So you had an ambulance. But then he didn't. But then the government that's how it works. I'm familiar with this Bill. Yeah. Because just like from living life and society and look around I could've guessed Hiller. I used to have the United States Marine corps. But now that I pay taxes it's completely out of my control. And now they're sort of sort of. Yeah, it's not the same. It's not Laura described the American ideas seminar as church camp for libertarians just certainly how it sounds quote as if it's normal conversation. We discuss ideas over dinner, like the only thing government should do is provide for the common defense fire station. Privatize medical care, even Medicare definitely privatized education all schools should be private education is a privilege, not a constitutional, right. Lags five these fucking people. How do we even like start to talk about those kinds of topics? Those people I just wanna live in a nation where poor children are free to be a literate and sell themselves into slavery signing their name writing their marks on contracts. They can't read that's seems like freedom to me. Maybe that doesn't seem like freedom to every freedom. I want I want to have to I think education should be profitable. So all the decisions at one would make in giving somebody the education is based off of how much money will make which I think would give that person a good education because it's motivated by doing whatever in order to make money. Absolutely. And that's always been where our greatest advances have come. When the only thing on the line was was profit. Yeah. That's how we cured polio. That's why Jonas Salk, you know, famously became a billionaire from the polio vaccine. That's why all of those NASA. Scientists who put a man on the moon got super-rich. Yeah. Stereotype of the mansion owning NASA. Scientists those rich fat cat scientists. Sitting on their ivory Apollo launcher. One percent of scientists. Now, Laura felt some disconnecting these conversations sure she'd gone to a public school, and she was at a public school. And she thought she got a pretty good education. But despite some lingering doubts she did find the whole experience almost intoxicating. The most exciting part for me is feeling important being treated as thinking that dolt and getting to spend the weekend at a fancy conference center. It is the nicest hotel room I've ever been in in the banquet room has crystal glasses. And there's a magic show and the college kids have beer. So find me up. I mean, I should note Texas in the eighties. You could drink and drive still that was like nineteen and ecstasy was legal. So this was quite the time to be in a hotel in the Houston area..

"So that energy, especially if you multiply it times the entire nation allows for Texas to essentially keep some of that political money here, which has been a real problem for Democrats. It's truly indicates that it's Texas has been like an ATM for the rest of the country. They've come to take the money and then has spread it to West Virginia in California never else well or works candidacy and his visibility has really allowed the money to stay here and be used to build the Democratic Party. But Abby ebbing Livingston on the other hand, Senator Ted Cruz. He's he's getting some support from the national GOP. I mean, the president himself is going to campaign for for the Senator that brings a energy and and money as well to to his campaign to an extent. I mean, Trump could do just as much to energize the democratic basis, the Republican base, but on the reverse. That resources coming to Texas to defend Ted Cruz extraordinary things. So there's a group called the club for growth that is spending for groups. And generally, I promise you, they would probably rather be spending somewhere else. They invest in house races and Senate races, and so this Texas is becoming a money pit for the Republican party. And I think there's a scenario where we could wake up the day after the election in a roar has lost several of these competitive US house races that have never been competitive before stay in the GOP column, and people in Texas may say will, well, that was a failure. But if you take a step back this, the to save these people resources have been diverted from other places and incumbents in those places could go down because of the money being spent in Texas. So Democrats could win in Texas by losing. Let's get a couple more callers in here. Dana is calling from curvier, Texas. You're on the air, Dana. By we bien. That's that's the extent of my Spanish.
