"What the fuck is the difference if they can put a dollar amount on it when they already have trillions of dollars spending that they're gonna run ads on i. I wouldn't be afraid of it. I wouldn't be excited about republicans. I wouldn't be afraid of it if i was democrats. I think both sides thinking about the number that you lift the debt ceiling to is the stupidest fucking. I what is going on. There's an old saying. And when i say i saying it is something that i started ten years ago and no one has picked up since then but the all the but the only people who believe republican talking points are democratic members of congress so that i mean that is what is going on here and it is like it makes no sense but just because it doesn't make sense as i mean the democrats don't believe it but the reason mcconnell wants to which is very. I wonder explain how this can work. So if you if the democrats refuse to do it through budget reconciliation. We have three options default. That seems not good for anyone. Correct right like probably worse for democrats by not necessarily good for republicans either correct option two is the republicans agree to schumer's requests. Which is schumer saying. I don't want any of your votes. You don't have not one of you has to vote for this. Just wave the filibuster and let us off if you democrats. They've already told me they're going to do it. You guys can all vote. Now you can run your ad saying voted whatever. The problem for mcconnell is any single. Senator can block that unanimous consent request and he does not have the juice to keep josh. Holly ted cruz rand paul in line to see to that. So the other is for ten. Republican senators to cross party lines as theoretically bucked mcconnell and make him look weak further inflamed trump and the maga- base. It say like make them angry at the senate republicans so he doesn't wanna do one he can't do too in three makes him look bad. It was only option is to tell democrats you go do what all on your own people can vote for. None of my people can stop you. Go do it. Here's where it's challenging. Democrats when mcconnell and the republicans said Democrats do it alone. The reconciliation Democrats not only said no. We're not going to do that because you know we're afraid of your very scary attack ad about this They also said look. We don't have time. it's two weeks we're going to default. Reconciliation is a very long process. It's drought there's these fucking vote. Rama's you know we have to take all these votes. We don't know that we're going to have the time to do this now. Mcconnell saying i'm giving you two month you can no longer use the excuse that you don't have time to lift the debt ceiling reconciliation on your own. You can absolutely do that in two months and by the way. That's joe mansion. Wants you to do you need his vote and he doesn't want to get rid of the filibuster he told me to let you just Vote to lift debt ceiling on your own so now reporters is going to say. Why won't democrats do it the reconciliation. They have two months while this even more giant complication there as well which is theoretically in those two months. Democrats are going to pass a budget. Reconciliation deal so we could put a debt ceiling increase in. Yes this is where i go back to like. I don't know why this was a big win for anyone. I know that it bought us. Time to negotiate ask. Oh i can't believe. I just said that negoti build better jobs and families plan. The jobs and families planet goes against our the time. Been trying to do this by if the new york times calling it. The social welfare bill in its headlines like we. It's turned out. They're not going to adopt the slogan on bumper sticker to use those stories. And i said the should have been called the fucking economic plan all along which is something that reporters would actually print an economic plan. Set of some fancy title this anyway. But i digress. But yeah no look i i get that. We get the extra ten negotiate. The bill without default. That's good. We've saved off to Mitch mcconnell did clearly blinken the scenario. I just One of the good arguments that we had is that we don't have time to do it now. We have the time and so. I'm a little concerned about how that plays out. So we said mansion told reporters on wednesday. He was still against changing the filibuster at all even to avoid default even after joe biden. Who's always been against performing the filibuster. And maybe the entire rest of the democratic caucus except for you know possibly cinema said yeah. We're ready to get rid of the filibuster to avoid default mansion still saying he wouldn't even reform the filibuster even to avoid default like doesn't really bode well for filibuster reform on voting rights. Or anything else does it. Doesn't it does not involve for that. I mean it's beijing only maybe we'll never given us a bus or it could be that. If republicans were filibustering allowing firefighters into burning capital joe. Manchin would be okay with that and maybe that's certainly what it seems like but because like this you have had this theory that maybe this is. What am i them revealing your private text threat theory here. Maybe we're talking. We talked about it. We talked about it right on this. And this and this podcast. Just no one. No one gave me credit for my theory. But yeah go ahead. Well i mean the the john. Do you have a name for your theory. The theory that will never come to pass that there will ever go to pass and there is some reporting.
"ted cruz rand paul" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"From each state having one vote. Republicans currently control twenty. six of the state delegations. Have the the bare majority needed to win that vote. President trump is reelected there as well so the point that you know. Your previous argument is legally wrong. And you're like oh so then. We'll do that right that picture. Here's looking at his script Says here fine okay. Say that one last piece by the way this is number five out of six so there there's a last one after this last one but one last piece assuming the electrical contact processes followed and upon getting the objections to arizona. Slates the two houses break into their separate chambers. Which by the way is what would happen. We know that because it did happen. In this case right pence got to. Arizona was about to to certify arizona for biden and there was an objection and at that point. You immediately brick right. You don't do this like we count up all the states and then oh look. We've we've thrown out enough of the biden votes that now we happen to have no. That's that's not the way the lower anyway we should. We should not allow the electoral contact constraint. On debate to control that would mean that a prior legislator was determining the rules of the present one. A constitutional no has tribe forcefully argued. There's not even a citation for that one so someone and again. I love this ted cruz rand paul etc. He because again doesn't matter crews will do whatever the hell you tell them to do right. should demand normal rules which involve the filibuster that a stalemate that would give the state legislators more time to weigh in two formerly support. The alternate slate of electors. If they have not already done so again. All of that is fantasy in the extreme. The electoral count act applied. Here we broke up into separate sections There was no filibuster procedure. They did not you know. Stall indefinitely in the senate now part of the reasons because giannis men was encouraging people to storm the capital. At this point in time but in any event that creates stalemate and then we get the state legislatures to support these lunatics. Who say and not on that happened either right and none of that was ever going up. Well what's the message you know that was ever going to happen. I mean this is a tangible plan that somebody had to steal the election was it. Fantastical was so out of the realm of possibility that we shouldn't have been worried about this. What what did you think. Sorry you are right to stop me on that. Because when i say that was never going to happen. Wh- i am reacting to this document as a lawyer. I am not reacting to this document as a propagandist. I'm not reacting to document from the perspective of somebody who engineered Folks to come out to the capitol and storm the capital with mace and weapons and shout. You know. Hang mike pence and a gallows and right like so. When i say this was never gonna. I mean from a legal perspective. These arguments are nonsense. Do i mean in any way that they were not dangerous has held the absolutely not right this terrifying to read this and the reason we're doing this is i don't know how far up the chain the scott. But this is disqualifying and janis. Smith should be disbarred tarred. Earning i mean yet. This is as as mad as i am at at at sydney powell like this is you know i. It's probably will but this is a handbook to take over a government like to steal your presidency. I mean that's that should be serious especially among lawyers and tender square that. Let me read the last paragraph. The main thing here is that pence should do this without asking for permission. Either from a vote of the joint session or from the court let the other side challenged his actions in court where tribe who in two thousand and one conceited. The president of the senate might be in charge of counting the votes and others would press a lawsuit would have their past position. These are non justitia political thrown back at them get the lawsuit dismissed. The fact is that the constitution assigns this power to the vice president as the ultimate arbiter. We should take all of our actions with that in mind. Well this is speculation. But we saw public break between mike pence and and donald trump right around this time last week of december beginning of january. Can i do anything more than surmise. That somebody went to mike pence and was like what do you think about the whole doing. A coup thing and mike pence was leg. This guy are you kidding me. All i'm saying is i would certainly explain a lot of contemporary active. So then i want to ask how close i know. These legal arguments are ridiculous but So was the abortion stuff going on right now. Like how close were we to this. Would you needed pence. Plus how many others. What would have taken. You would have needed pence that we've already had you. We already had eleven senators right. God engage in the sham process of objecting to the arizona electors. We already had multiple members of both the house and the senate Vote against certifying that slate of electors. Now they were overwhelmed by the number of their colleagues on the other side But if you insert here mike pence and in the ted cruz rand paul etc but in josh holly right somebody who and i ted cruz i think also has no shame you have one member of the senate you probably need one member of congress that's not going to be mark meditate right to just monkey with the procedures and following paragraph six the vice president. Just do this without asking for permission. You could have put this into into industry chilling. I i like to believe that. Our institutions are more robust than that the past five years of taught me a lot about assumptions about institutions. That almost makes me think that from their perspective. The big lie trump people are like kinda right in that pence coulda done something. Like i thought they were kinda just wrong about that. But i guess from their perspective pence maybe did have the power to at least make a decent attempt at trying to steal the presidency as i write given his prominence given the way in which it would have been an immediate. It would've taken everybody on on the side of goodness indecency by surprise. Including you know. I when i when i add that right. I'm adding and feel free to hold this against me for the rest of my natural life. Mitch mcconnell right like like let us not forget. He didn't want to steal the presidency for trump. I don't think like you know. He forcefully condemned a one six at the right again. Yeah engaged in the gas lighting. Because he's mitch mcconnell he's still i think that's how he sustains himself like vampires suck blood mitch. Mcconnell gas lights people on the left. i think that's how he that's his life force. Pretty sure when you remember what. He's all bruised up. I think he just hadn't gasoline anybody for too long. I guess like people about my beliefs. Okay entire entirely possible. But what i'm saying. If this coup attempt had taken place mitch mcconnell would have been on our side right. It would have been an immediate scramble for at all right. What procedural shenanigans can we pull in order to stop this from going forth and you know we had the masterpiece. Procedural shenanigans are on our side. So if you're asking me introduce your evaluation of this. The likelihood of this coup succeeding depend on the the benifit. Scence depend on the view of democracy of mitch. Mcconnell my answer to that has to be yes and that should be terrifying out of itself. Wow i'm not gonna crown pence king of the resistance or anything and he is an awful handmaid's tale person himself however if you had to choose between an enemy of everything you believe in who at least respects the foul of the institutions of your car of your democracy somewhat and one. Who doesn't i'll take the one who respects the institutions of your democracy somewhat. It makes me appreciate that component of some people on the right more i guess and now time for cheap three everybody know socially this firm has ever failed the bar exam. No kidding well this This new test is very difficult. Not sure when. I'll get one of these ones right We'll see how it goes..
"ted cruz rand paul" Discussed on Fever Dreams
"Hill to urge herschel walker to run. This is something where he's had a sustained pressure campaign to get his buddy to run for office now it seems it might blow up in republicans faces. Maybe yet at the situation where. It's not even clear. That herschel walker really wants to run for senate and it's not. It's pretty clear at this point that that mcconnell and a lot of republicans are worried about herschel walker. Who i think has done a lot of good work talking publicly about all of his mental health problems and as what's commonly known as borderline personality disorder. But you know he had a lot of issues threatened. His former wife really threatened to get violent with her threaten to kill her at one point. At least she's claimed and so. This is the type of thing that you may not want. Running and senate ads and there are other viable options in georgia. That republicans think that could actually win in a state That is generally pretty republican and was really the first time in twenty twenty that we saw that it could be a purple state. And they're hoping to be. The senator were knock and herschel walker is not that they wanna make their where. He's got a lot of possible weaknesses. Problem is donald. Trump has been yelling about herschel walker since i think march was when he first came out and publicly endorsed him and pushed him to rod issued a statement. Saying ron herschel. Run and there's been really hard if you're a republican who has some ambition to run for the senate who may be going along with the big lion has done a trump supporter. But you're not gonna go against the president when he's calling for that and so walker hasn't gotten in republicans are nervously awaiting for him to make his decision and it could be a total disaster for them and lose a seat that they're hoping to win in a state that really should the republican in amid term. So it's a big problem for them. And it's not just there. If you wanna talk about alabama mo brooks. I think you guys probably got okay. Let's talk about mo brooks yes. Everybody's favorite absolute king all-star okay and this is definitely one of the states that is on mcconnell's target list. Yeah and it's a state look alabama unless you nominate roy moore is probably not be competitive in the general election but you have to remember that mcconnell has to deal with these dudes after they win their seats and we've seen cases where republican senators get elected and they end up causing more headaches for mcconnell than any democrat ever cut and i think we one of trump's best buddies in the senate ron johnson has done this pretty regularly obviously ted cruz rand paul over the years have done this and then the latest example. We saw in tennessee. The tennessee senator bill hegarty. Who's i actually was kind of you. Know had some establishment backing but trump trump's ambassador japan. And that's the reason really that he won his senate race and he was the one who basically just forced all these republicans in democrat stupid made them all come back for extra days on this infrastructure bill enforce them all to waste of their august recess vacations and all of it events ahead plan back home just because of Basically he just being a jerk. And that's the type of thing that mcconnell doesn't want to deal with going forward and so you look to alabama where mo brooks has got trump's strong backing in kind of funny because mo brooks was not a big trump aker back in sixteen is pretty critical but he's became one of the loudest stop the steel supporters. He spoke at the rally right before the attacks on the capital. He's revealed recently to my buddy. Jim newell over at slate that he was wearing a bulletproof vest just in case on that day and so because of how peaceful and serene everything was never be. Yeah exactly and so like look. He's big trump guy. Which i don't actually think would be disqualified. From mcconnell the big disqualifying thing was mcconnell already. Didn't like him and in that twenty seventeen race. That roy moore ended up winning. The primary mcconnell superpac came in and dumped. I believe tens of millions of dollars on mo brooks head winning out that he had like end like trump before they're trying to get their guy through luther strange and mo brooks tests mcconnell and will just actively come in and fought with them. And so. it's a thing word. Mcconnell doesn't want to deal with marlboro. he doesn't want him in the senate and so richard shelby retiring. His former chief of staff is running and she's raised upon money that's got shelley's fingerprints all over at shelby's backing her but it also signals at national publicans quietly lining up to hopefully able to stop brooks in that race. And so that'll be one of those of warfare type situations or mcconnell might never come out and endorse against brooks. But he is certainly prime. The brooks doesn't call the senate camp before you guys get going something else we want to talk to you about. Cam is your reporting. On how texas nowadays is become ground zero for this republican attack on voting rights and expanded voting rights. You've done some reporting recently on how the most horrific part of the bill that is working. Its way through that state. Legislature has actually been stripped out. Can you tell our listeners about that. Yes so it's interesting. That some of this pressure actually did work and we saw this earlier in georgia where some of the most egregious measures of the bill ended up coming out before about past including limiting sunday voting which really targeted african american voters in texas. We saw something similar where it was a really really over the top machiavelli ian bill. That was clearly designed to en- very obviously designed to screw democrats especially suppress black and hispanic voters and what we saw was after democrats started raising a huge staying stormed out and prevented republicans from having a forum to actually vote on the bill and then fled the state to cause further delays in. Bill actually got a little bit better and so we saw republicans dropped two items one which would basically let them overturned local elections and say oh. The county wasn't doing things right. We're gonna just say that election wasn't fair and the state legislature would decide who had one and the bar would be cutting sunday's voting which would have screwed the all of the african american church groups that do salsa the polls events so those came out there are still some really problematic things in the bill but they're a little more targeted and it's kind of ironic that the party of limited government and local control is done this in a bunch of states georgia taxes at the top of that were basically. They've made it so that the county's can't do what they want to do in order to make it easier to vote. And so they are targeting. These blue counties that tried to expand voting and in texas. What they're trying to do in this final. Bill has which i'm guessing we'll pass pretty soon is banned drive thru voting band twenty four hour voting and banned the county's from being able to send out ballot applications from alien voting without a request coming in i and so it just additional hurdles to these purple to blue trending more urban areas where democratic voting was booming in the last election. And they wanna make sure that doesn't happen again can thank you so much for joining us. This is disturbing is always but.

I don't know anything about magnet or microchips. I'm not not disgusting. I never even heard that stuff. I just talked to some very highly decorated epidemiologist doctors and scientists and cardiologists here on the show and i just looked at their data and they ignore natural immunity and they can't make the case for me that the risk of injecting that spy protein in my body with natural immunity would give me any better resistance to vid than what i already was given.

Is our lead. So Senator Jell O brand Always good to have you. Welcome back to W N. Y C. Ryan. It's a pleasure and listeners call your Senator New Yorkers first priority, but anyone may call 646435 70 to 80. I'm any relevant issue, 646. 435 70 to 80 or tweeted question at Brian there, Senator. Would you remind people of the problem you're trying to address with sexual assault in the military and how cases of that are handled? So the problem is, there's a scourge of sexual violence in the military and the justice system in the military isn't working to help and to provide justice for survivors. 2018 every two years. The military has estimate of how many sexual assaults there are 2018. That estimate was about 20,000. But when you look at the details of how many people reported and how many people got their cases move forward to try and how many cases end in a conviction. The raid of prosecution and the rate of conviction has gone down, and it's the lowest it's been in the 10 years that the military's been tracking these statistics. So which is moving in the right direction on any measurable and so I have been trying for the last eight years to change how we deal with these cases because when you talk to survivors And you asked him. You know where you sexually assaulted? Did you report? Why didn't you report? The reason over and over again is they didn't trust the chain of command would have their back. And that's not surprising because Fort Hood just did a study on what was happening there. And they found that the command climate was so toxic that it was permissible for harassment and assault. Within the ranks, And so it's the problem is is that the commanders have have maintained for spots and years. I've been working on this that they have to be in charge of everything that they're the on Lee ones who could bring good or discipline. But the truth is, they're failing in this very way. And so right now commanders of the ones who decide whether case goes to trial. They also picked the judge the jury, the prosecutor in the defense counselor, so they're in charge of everything. If you don't believe your commander has your back then you don't believe the chain of command will be able to move your case and actually get a conviction, And unfortunately, that's what the result is. The other problem has been record high retaliation rates, um, about 60% of men and women who come forward to report assault instead of getting justice. They are retaliated against We're bringing their cases forward, So our solution is toe. Let trained military prosecutors do one thing. Let them decide whether or not the case should go to trial. If they do that one thing then survivors will know that's unbiased individual who's highly trained and a lawyer is the one who's going to decide whether their case should move forward. That will create trust in the system, and I believe it will result in more cases going to trial and more convictions. I saw that in New York Times article on this this week cited Republican Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa. And a key member of the other party. Obviously, who seems to be coming to your point of view on this in a way that might matter a lot politically because you've been trying to get through this through for a while and have been able to get a pass. So can you say anything about Senator Ernst's own story or your talks with her about the issue. Yes. So we've had about half the Senate or over half the Senate over the last eight years supporting this bill, Widely bipartisan, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, Rand. Paul and Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders and Liz Warren have all supported this bill for a long time. However, there's just been this last group of people that it's been really hard to convince, because they've been unwilling to. Ah, either take on the chain of command or not follow the D O. D. And with Joni Ernst supporting this bill, it does change everything because she is not only Ah, combat veteran herself. She's a former commander herself, and she's also a sexual assault survivor. He has looked at this issue of the last six years with me. We've tried to put in place lots of different reforms together things that the D O D was comfortable with. We've moved that legislation and none of it is moving the needle. And so Joanie got to the point this year where, she said enough is enough. If the statistics keep going in the wrong direction, then all the things we've put in place of the last eight years isn't enough. We need professionalism. We need a trained military prosecutor to do this, and we need to have transparency and accountability. And so her joining has already resulted in several Republicans joining the bill. And it's given confidence to some of the more moderate Democrats that this is an idea whose time has come. And so we've just signed on at least a dozen senators who are not with us before both Democrat and Republican because of this new coalition, and it's really meaningful Which the vote No way We can ask for an up or down vote on this issue, but we may choose to just wait for the defense bill. We are very close to having a majority of the committee and Ah 60 60 senators. So I'm gonna try to lobby this a couple more weeks to see if I can get to 60 co sponsors or a majority of the Armed Services Committee. If that happens, then we can go to the Armed Services Committee and say We want this in the base bill. Because we can win this on the floor. And if I can assure that this is in the base armed services mark up, then we will do it that way, Because then we just get toe. Turned into law, which is the goal. There now, some women in high ranking leadership positions in the Pentagon where they weren't before. As you know. Kathleen Hicks as deputy defense secretary, second in command there, and Christine Warmth, has been nominated to become secretary of the Army. She'd be the first woman in that position pending confirmation by the Senate. I'm curious how much you think those roles matter to legal or cultural changes that need to take place in our nation's armed forces..

"This is not driven by the needs of the country. This is not driven by trying to help out the people who are hurting back home. This is driven really, by the partisan rage and the partisan anger. The Democrats feel they hate Donald J. Trump and and and they're engaging in. On an act that I think is petty. I think it is retribution. I think it is a vindictive and I think it's a waste of time and so to coin a phrase. I think it's time to move on. You know inside. Listen to that on. Of course, I just got off the phone doing an interview with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. You got Ted Cruz Rand. Paul. Texas Seiji Ken Paxton off fighting the good fight, right? Maybe it's time for some other Republicans to stand up and start fighting as well. Um, I mean, it's it's obvious to me. Biden has its sights squarely on the state of Texas and as Texas a gene Paxton said, I don't think he likes this very much because we didn't vote for him. And you know we're in oil and gas state like it or not. Republicans. If you're listening to me take take a cue from Texas Attorney General Paxton, Ted Cruz, Rand. Paul, Step up and start fighting for the people of your state. Start fighting for your state in general. And by the way, there's also do you know there's a war on women taking place. Yeah, believe or not. Donald Trump didn't have anything to do with it. Joe Biden did but 50% of you women voted for him. So what's up with that? I'll get into that in just a second. Let's go toe Larry in Lake Fork. How you doing wearing Oh, thank you very much, Mr Roberts for taking my call you sir, I'd like to press I'd like to preface my comment to tell you that I'm an octogenarian and retired sergeant Major of Marines. In my lifetime. I never believed that my country could slip into a socialist one party system. I don't know what your common is it. I think we need another party. As I certainly don't think Republicans are up to the task of defeating the Democrats and all the elements that they hold. I don't know of any element strong element in our country that supports the conservative idea. I wish you'd comment on that place. Yeah, it was a matter of fact, Larry. I've mentioned this a couple of times. First of all, Thank you for your service. I prepared to call very much. I don't believe the Republicans or the task of Of dealing with the Democrats, either. They haven't shown that they're up to the task. Thank you for the call. Larry. I appreciate it is I look at this. Um, you know, Trump talked about the Patriot Party. He was toying with the idea of a third party this past weekend. He got rid of that idea, and instead Says he's going to help the Republicans primary. All these never Trumpers, which I think it's an excellent idea if the Republican Party Would put Donald Trump Aziz their lead, man, You know, they may light learn something. You know you can't sit up there and in your three piece suit. Yes. Amen. It's my way or the highway. Life doesn't work that way. And you can't just Simply react to everything the Democrats do. You've got to. You've got to get out there. You gotta play some offense, and Republicans haven't been very good safe for the people. I just mentioned Black Cruz and Rand Paul in There's a few others certainly Texas attorney General Passion You got to go on offense. You know, the state of Texas is worth protecting. The people that live with their borders are worth protecting, and we need people to do that. Lips later, Billy and every other boy politically speaking, so I'm with you, but I'm not. Um, If there was ever a person to start a third party, it was probably Trump. And if he's decided he would be a much more value primary ng a bunch of these Republicans than you know, I got to go with him on that. I said it before. I supported him as you did all wait, Eo the end of this thing. The impeachment is a scan its political fear. I don't think there's anything in constitution. It even gets close. We're allowing you to impeach the private citizen. He's not an officer anymore where you impeaching him. There's only one reason Democrats are scared to death of Trump winning again because if they do they know he brings 75 million plus people with him. Andre was scared to death to deal with that. So at this point in time, that's not to say I wouldn't change my mind at some point, But at this point in time, I would say that Let's see if the Republican Party can be fixed because it certainly broken and if it can't if you simply can't get these do nothings in Washington. Get up off their ass and do something. Then I'd be open to it. The party, Larry. Very good call. Thank you. Aubrey in Dallas. Aubrey, How are you? Good. How are you? Good. So, um, I had called yesterday but I wanted to say something a little bit about the impeachment that they're trying to pull on on now, With what I guess. Now, private.

Yeah he's probably met with a lot of them Over the years different places had to with real estate deals and different things like that but trump's not one of them they can't control trump. That's the problem that's why they want him out now. The republican party is gone. There's other than there's a couple of them. There is ram paul. I think he's a good guy or not suits. Skews me not rampant. Ted cruz rand paul in the last hours along with lindsey graham and a whole bunch of others they shit right on him but ted cruz stood up. Ted cruz said screw. This ted cruz had a come to jesus meeting if you will.

They didn't listen. The fix was in. As i've been saying another podcast even before it got started. Okay it didn't matter. It didn't matter what the outcome was. Trump's going to lose regardless even though he won but in there is they fixed it and don't forget I'll have to pull that tape here If i can find that one of nancy pelosi making recording and said one way or another. There's not going to be a second term of trump guaranteed now in somebody makes a statement. Okay like that and they can say. I guarantee you're not going to be around again.

"Um how are they going to now? Go back and grandstand about all that stuff when they approved When the time came for them, actually stand on something. The coward I couldn't hear. I just don't get any. How anybody could vote for the moving forward A real Republican. Real concerns? Well, Rick, I would say that they're gonna have a real hard time moving forward. I mean, let's be real. And I know a lot of these guys. Cruz Rubio, Rand, Paul. All of them, Let's just be real. They all sold their soul. To Donald Trump. Um and I don't know how you walk that back. A lot of people like maybe you and me would never vote for them again. The bet they're making Rick is they know that Trump and Trump's voters are still going to dominate the Republican Party for the next four years. They don't want to lose his voters. So Rand Paul and Cruz figure if I stick by Trump Then maybe his voters will support me in 2024. That's still what they're gonna do. That makes sense. Yeah, just for me personally, It's I don't I don't feel like it ever vote for any of those. I'll never bringing those Republicans because they showed their true colors. And when it came down to crunch time. When things really mattered. They ran. So I mean someone like me. I'm not gonna forget that. A Rick, Rick and Rick Man, I'm right there with you. Uh, I appreciate the call, buddy. I'm right there with you. I've been very public. In that I can never and will never again support any Republican who supported Donald Trump. So Ted Cruz Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Nikki Haley. Yeah, I'm just speaking for me. I'm not alone. By the way. This is why I believe The Republican Party. Is in such bad shape nationally. This is why I believe in my lifetime. We may never see a Republican become president again. Because there's a split in the Republican Party. I'm not alone When I say what I just said that I will never support any Republican. Who supported Donald Trump. I'm not alone. There are a lot of Republicans slash conservatives like me. Now we're not the majority of the Republican Party. The majority of the Republican Party right now is the Trump Party. So there there are more of them than there are me but on our own that the Trump Wing I am the non trump wing on our own. We're not neither one of us is big enough to win a national election again. Which is why I think the Republican Party nationally. Will do well in deep red districts in deep red states, but nationally The party split up. It's done. 844305 78 100.

It's Liberty Block dot com, and we can talk a little bit more about that in just a moment, but you were answering a question about new. Yorkers and you know what's IT GONNA. Take to wake him up and say hey. You're living in the most tyrannical police state of all, and you didn't see it clearly before you should certainly see it. It clearly now with all this insane, these insane crackdowns, a guy from he has, he works in Manhattan was showing US photos. Last night of all these businesses boarded up with boards all over the windows all throughout this area of Manhattan where he works, which is you know relatively upscale place right now, and it was just so crazy. Every place is also rail man. They're all open, but they all have. Have Boards up on the windows. He took a picture right in front of Gandhi statues right next to the statue of Gandhi just surrounded by all these boards all this gear, all this fear fear fear violence, so you were saying people are in denial and a lot of my friends. Still in the GOP are in denial. They think they're gonNA turn New York together. They think they're gonNA turn California right. Again That delusional and it's it's sad because they're optimistic and if you know me I'm generally pessimistic, but. I have to be realistic to write California's gotten more and more blue every year since Reagan maybe forty years ago fifty years ago. Save US NEW YORK. He gets Bluer and Bluer. In fact New York State is one of the most democratic places one of the least replaces. Not a lot of people knew this. The Senate was actually Republican controlled, technically not conservative, but Republicans controlled it till A. A year or two ago, when Democrats officially took control of the Senate now they have a Trifecta, but so it's it is still getting more and more blue, and it's getting less free more socialist, more regulated, and still said they are fiftieth, and they are by far the least free state three I'll be honest. I don't have any issue if the Republicans want to stay in New York. Democrats I would rather well the. Conservatives here, yeah, the Good Liberty People I'm trying to get here and what I find. That's how many Liberty Republicans. There really is a great point, and and again came from and like you asked what got me political was I was conservative by conservatives by Liberty. Conservatives and thank God. It's hard to be open. Minded and I'm pretty stubborn, but I try to be open. Open minded to, and we have to be stubborn if a principled, but thankfully I was, I was raised a conservative, very conservative parents, law and order. We respect police, but you know we support were skeptical of government. We support lower taxes lower regulation personal freedom. Big. My father me, my brothers all because we're open minded. We went from. You know. Ted Cruz Rand Paul Conservatives. All the way more towards Rand Paul, Thomas Massie Ron Paul. Now and CAP, and even though capital I've dragged my parents. All three of my brothers, or at least to my brother, so far in a lot of friends from conservative or like you, said Middle Republican conservative all the way to libertarian, or maybe you involuntary and Cap, so I flipped on the big police issues where conservatives are here and Libertarians are on the opposite side of the spectrum. I've changed a bit open minded. I was the biggest supporter in the world of years ago, so I might have been one of those people from new. York you. You may have considered a conservative. You may not want here because I was a status pro-police. You know pro government prolonged order I was one of those saying if you, if you just arrest. Yeah, YOU'RE GONNA get killed man. Just just don't resist arrest. Just obey. The law I was the one thing that years ago, so now when I argue in a call people. Idiots and I say how stupid the are i. kind of think with that was. Yeah so I try to be pretty open. Minded I really do understand them. Yeah, it's important to be able to empathize. Put Yourself in somebody. Else's shoes but you know you're talking more about like. The conservative people are the more libertarian types in New York also in denial. Do they think they're going to like rise up from zero then the people who are ideologically. Sharpen got behind him.

It's not winnable it one hundred years, maybe Libertarian Party people can get elected, but so far from what I've seen. They get one percent or less or more in most places.

You elect somebody state Representative, and as soon as a congressional seat opens up, they're all over it, or you send them to congress, and then they want to be a Senator or you elect them to be a Senator Barack Obama a Ted Cruz, rand Paul Marco Rubio, and then immediately, they want to be president. They're always looking for that next. Best thing, this clearly appears to be what is up to. He was campaigning in Iowa today and you talk about a guy who looked out of place. First of all, he was wearing these weird blue jeans. He had these like, tennis shoes on that, like young men wear. I can't even wear. Many more like twenty something year old guys where there little to foofoo for me. But there he is. He said people ask them today in Iowa. Why are you run for president? Don't you have a lot on your hands in New York City and to Blasios said my run for president may actually help New York City, I can I can help salve lot of problems in New York City? If I'm campaigning for president. Maybe I can bring more attention on.

Truth be told maybe like five or six of them have a shot to be the nominee. There may be one surprise out of the top five twenty five people running, and I can tell you what the vast majority of these twenty five people running know that they have no shot. They're running for whatever reason, maybe they want to be vice president who they want to raise their name ID who, who knows why. But this guy build the Bligh's ios joke. He came out the mayor of New York City came out yesterday and announced he came out yesterday in a video announcing he's running for president, by the way, mayor of New York City pretty big job pretty important job.

"Well, I think what what what similarity might see is sort of jostling over lanes. You remember back in two thousand sixteen you had Republicans fighting over you had Rubio, and Jeb Bush fighting over the establishment lane. And maybe the Florida lane you had Ted Cruz and rand Paul fighting over the sort of conservative tea party lane. And so one of the things that can be interesting to see is how does someone like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, for example, how do they jostle over the progressive wing? Are they going to be putting out negative on one another they can be attacking each other sort of behind the scenes early? That's can be something that I think will be interesting to watch it strikes me so far at least looking at the polling that that the lanes start a lot more muddled on the democratic side. You could see even early in twenty fifteen that, you know, people who liked say, Jeb Bush, also voters, I'm talking about in in opinion. Polls people who. Like, Jeb Bush, also liked Chris Christie, a lot of them. Also like, Mark Rubio. They did not like Ted Cruz rand Paul and vice versa right there. I it seems like there's a lot more overlap. Most most of the Democrats who like Elizabeth Warren also like Bernie Sanders, but they also like Joe Biden, they also like, you know, go down the line all to all twenty. And it it strikes me as we're we're starting in a little bit more muddled situation. Yeah. And one thing about warns nouncement on under Year's Eve. I know there was some attention paid to that. Some people are questioning whether it was a smart data to do that. What struck me was that she chose to pick a slow news day. And a lot of these people who are going to be looking who are gonna be announcing their campaigns. That's the day when they get a lot of attention. That's the day when they can get news coverage, but unlike in two thousand sixteen they're going to be competing against a president who's actually making a ton of news not every day, but every hour potentially. And so they're going to be competing in a really not just among themselves to get attention. But really against the president. Who's who's dominating new cycle after cycle after news because really good point? They're also going to have to find unique ways to break through his stranglehold on the news cycle. I mean, Trump will as we've seen will do anything at any moment. And no matter how unconventional or perhaps on dignified. No matter what it is. And so you have to be a sort of unique candidate either to to counter that or at least to somehow share a new cycle with that kind of politician. A great point it's gonna be fascinating to watch as more of these candidate. It's launch and otherwise get off the ground. All right onto Mitt Romney Alex recap. What was in this up Ed in the Washington Post that caused so much hullaballoo yesterday? It was very note worthy for new Senator stepping in challenging the leader of his party directly. Of course Mitt Romney is not your typical Senator right? It was a a op Ed that focused really kind of broadly on this notion of Trump's character, and that he had kind of fallen short of meeting the mantle of leading the country, and it also focused heavily on on foreign policy, which is of course in area that Mitt Romney is a pretty focused on. There was a time. Actually, when he when Trump was considering him to become secretary of state, but but Romney expressed concern about the departure of Jim Mattis. He expressed concern about the Syria troop pullout, and so it really these are themes that Romney has actually been sounding for some time about President Trump. But it. Was striking to see it. I think in an op Ed format to see it in sort of a formal newspaper setting and not just say a tweet, which is what Romney has been doing in recent months. This the sparked a lot of conversation on Wednesday about is Mitt Romney going to run for president. And he was asked directly about it on TV. And he said, no. But what what do you think this means in terms of the possibility that Trump could face a challenge of some sort? Well, the timing is interesting because over the last month, they're sort of seems to be growing concern among Republican party elites about Trump..
