Mike Gallagher Announces New Podcast 'The No Interruptions Podcast'
"Even when it's not a troll, I do interrupt people too much. And I know that. And I'm working on it, but I came up with an idea the other day. Why don't we do a podcast that has no interruptions whatsoever. But yet presents challenging complicated, compelling issues in a debate format with no shouting and cross talk and interrupting each other and we dropped the first episode this morning at 6 a.m. Eastern Time, a good conversation with a young Texas Democrat whose pro abortion and a young conservative with the radians foundation pro life, and we, they debated the abortion issue. Now, my role is just moderator. Do you know how hard that is for me? That's torture. That's like sitting on a plane with next to Sammy and Gettysburg for four hours. That'd be my luck. It was torture to be the moderator. You know what? It worked. It was pretty good. In fact, it was very good. And I think you're going to like it. If you've got a few minutes to spare, download the podcast, it's the first installment of what we trust will be many more episodes of the Mike Gallagher show, no interruptions, podcast, only rule, no interruptions allowed. You hear the right, you hear the left. Again, I just keep the train on the tracks. And the first episode has been uploaded. It's available now wherever you get podcasts, Apple, Spotify, just look for the Mike Gallagher show, or you can go directly to Mike online dot com and click on that to hear the first episode of the no interruptions podcast from the Mike Gallagher show featuring the abortion debate in a way that you're not going to typically hear it. We listen. I get emotional. We get passionate. We interrupt. We yell, we go back and forth. This one was really pretty even handed.

"Some interesting news out of Texas, beto o'rourke, the skateboard man, the cool cat who almost upset Ted Cruz for the Senate race in Texas is now running for governor against, well, against governor Abbott. And he's down 8 points in the polls. And we're trying to explore what's going on in Texas. Now here's an interesting story. Texas Democrat named Ryan gillan, who's from the south part of Texas, Debbie understands that part of the country better than I do, but in any event he has defected to the Republican Party. And so honey, listen to this, he goes, first of all, he says, you know, many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in Washington D.C. are not our values, so he's talking here about the Biden administration. And then he gives three reasons. He goes the ideology of defunding the police. That's number one. Of destroying the oil and gas industry. Number two, and the chaos at our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in South Texas now. This guy, one is seat by nearly 17 points in the last election, so he's in a very safe seat. You would think he could stay a Democrat. He's probably just disgusted at what has happened to the Democratic

"Good morning so tell us what the texas democrats are actually suing about well. This one's kind of interesting not exactly sure a little short on factual contentions but But perhaps we'll we'll get more but they're maintaining that The governor and the house speaker and one other Have denied them the opportunity in terms of their first amendment Access or speech to address grievances with respect to the government they make some know discriminatory contentions as well which Which i think probably will need to be fleshed out a little bit in terms of factual support but they have asked for a temporary restraining order so we might actually have a hearing sometime soon and perhaps some of that That informational kind of come to light. If in fact there there is some looks like they're going directly to the constitution in in quoting Infringement of their constitutional rights to free speech and petition and to petition the government for redress of grievances. Who are they kidding. They're standing up in front of microphones. Tv cameras every single day with you know making their their free speeches and and petitioning the government if they just killing time here. Yeah i think so. I think they mentioned it. This is a tool kind of utilizing to To garner additional attention to bring attention to their cause But again in federal court you've got to you got to kind of set out. The factual contentions got a mirror. The law so it's one in which they'll have to come up with some you know the the actual factual contentions to support what it is. They're maintaining with respect to the discrimination and the inability to address grievances etc In front of a federal judge. So it's a situation that may come to ahead pretty quickly for them with respect to this lawsuit but again you know there. There's i'm sure back and forth between themselves and the governor and other lawmakers That perhaps we are not currently privy to but But they'll have to to make those assertions in front of the judge soon so we'll see if any of that stuff exists i know republicans Have talked about changing the corum rules so that they can get on with the business because they called a second special session. At least the governor did and they can't get anything done because they don't have a quorum but can they change the corn rules without having a corum. yeah. I don't think he can't i. It's a situation where it's kind of set out from the beginning. You gotta have a quorum except for special things that That are in the constitution You know basically being able to bring people to To the house chamber things of that nature but beyond that they can't really change the rules without a quorum so You know. I think most of the stuff will probably come to a head sometime this month. We know that there is a september first deadline for Legislative staffers and their pay. So you know there's going person gonna be on both sides so hopefully there's some some resolution over the course of the next few weeks. We're talking about dallas based attorney eric's. Do so we keep hearing that. The governor is Is threatening to arrest them Fifty democrats who skipped out. And he actually do that. And are we talking about you know handcuffs and all that or are we talking about. Just some procedure have basically a procedure. You know there's no criminal action taken against them they the ability and it's actually a house create. It's not really the governor. It's it's the speaker of the house. And they've already voted at one of those exceptions to the corporal To allow for the picking up of these individuals and basically taking them with or without their will to To the house chamber if they're found here in the state of texas so it's It's an arrest in the sense that they can pick them up and take them to the house. But there's no criminal component to what's going on and again it's the house speaker and You know the individuals who voted to make this happen without the quorum that that have the ability to do that as that already been done with some of the democrats who have returned there was it was one that that had an issue that kind of came back and and then of his own volition and then when he came back to texas they you know made. He showed up at the house. And and of course Decided to head back to washington And and with that They did issue a writ that would pick him up and bring him back but of course he was gone before that happened. Well it certainly seems like one of those political dramas that could only happen in texas. So it's It's fun to watch from that aspect Thank you so much erik. We appreciate your time this morning. Absolutely thanks for having me on dallas-based attorney eric city..

"It's not really a segment for us. But it's interesting you talk about unintended consequences. They're talking about a pretty nasty rigmarole flu going around this summer because the kids and everyone has been so isolated over the year. they haven't been exposed to the normal germs that they would to develop those immunities so people who are actually getting sicker and with the regular flu. By the way as you know dr paul. Children are much more likely to die from the regular old flu than kobe. Which is a good thing. But they don't recognize it but you know the other thing we need to do. Dr paul is we need to do. Our part in fighting misinformation administration is chasing people down. If you're ready to move onto that chasing people down for for misinformation They wanna stop it but we have a clip from twitter. Yesterday from president. He was doing a townhall meeting very eloquent. Let's play that first twitter clip if we if we can. Here's what he had to say to get that cued up. It's a little tricky. But that i video clip on twitter. Here we go. Here's the present. Let's see what he has to say. Various shots that people are getting now. Cover that there's you're okay you're not gonna you're not gonna get covert if you have these vaccinations. Yeah you're not gonna get covert if you have these. Vaccinations with dr paul. Let's look at that. Let's skip that one clip that trump clip in skip over to the next clip. If we can is getting complicated but you're not gonna get covered if you have explanations. That's what the president says. He's fighting misinformation if we can put that clip on uh-huh vaccinated pelosi staffer and white house official test positive for covert amid visit of the torius infected texas lawmaker. I'm trying to figure out who's gonna get cancelled a sitting confusing who who's not falling science hiding behind the science when they're completely wrong completely. This whole thing about this giving these shots to the kids. The science follow signed is so so sickening. But it's also the thing re reason wants to the people know more about this is what terms of off. I think. I think if we do nothing else then you have a few more people hear about this and spread the message that more people will resist. And and that's what we need. This is this. is this terrible. It is follow the science. Yahoo who's gonna teach them. Well we have a world of topic of by. I wanted to sort of a semi final thing. If we could just play that. That second twitter clip. I think i'm twenty seconds of it or something. I put it down. This is also from the townhall dot depaul annot He probably didn't watch it as closely as some people.

"Everyone's seen it. Texas democrat delegation sixty members. As you say. If that i quit here they are. They're on an airplane. They're flying the dc. They're basically i mean if you wanna look at this way dr paul. Someone else's said this to there's subverting. The democratic legislative process in texas by leaving basically insurrection against the texas Elected government anyway. Here they are. They're on the plane are having a good time. I think in earlier picture. They had a case of beer with them so they didn't forget that they forget their mass. But here's a lady. There's an arrow pointing out her. Her name is state rep. Donna howard donna howard. She was one of them who flew on a plane and she didn't have a mask on. That's fun for us. We think no one should be forced to wear a mask anywhere but actually if we put up that bonus clip we learn a little bit more about donna howard. There's that extra clip that i sent. Here's what she tweeted right after. She tweeted this. actually yesterday. We need to follow the science here. Texas needs to change course and allow for universal mask wearing to prevent the spread of the highly contagious delta variant especially s children under twelve cannot get back to. She wants to put him on kids. He wants to put it on everyone except her. And when faced with this question. Dr paul this. Hey what's going on. You didn't have a mask on. She said something. That is so much in our favor because it shows the attitude of the elites she said hey. The tsa exempts private non commercial flights from the mask requirement. You know you peasants do that notice in the private planes. Yeah that really want over a lot of people interesting to see how this plays out here in the next year or less than a year. now but the Whole thing is she's she. She loses twice. I the whole principle wearing a mask and hypocrisy that she goes through. But what about this thing of putting on the kids. Yeah you know the kids are soon safest best. If we'd just leave him alone. Send them to school and let them play and and go to ball games. Yeah here here they Say we have to take care of children so that that of course jeopardizes the children and there's no way this statistics no matter how they work in the next year if they do this input mass on back at school but but fortunately maybe our governor will keep them from doing that but The statistics couldn't couldn't be favorable. They're gonna show. You know. I i if a virus comes the delta virus comes it's there's you you know the discussion on how serious it is but but it may be providing good immunity these kids. If i did get it. They might be getting an immunity for not spreading. Place might be for them in the future. And if if the then if they have a reaction Is it totally unnecessary. Reaction giving giving shots to people hurt for no good reason especially these kids. How can they do this. Yeah but they they do it and do it with a nice smile. And they're doing the lord's work and and this is this is their their mission in life and It's a bad mission. Well the one thing. I i read today..

Yes and tomorrow yes absolutely all right very good biscuits because we're doing well but we're trying to help everybody do well right. That means we have to stop the next epidemic right planning. It's already in the planning the so this. Just talk about some of the leftovers from last year. It was supposed to be over but it looks like it really isn't i. Don't think our governors and the president and few other people's still aware of the fact that It's over folks over her back to the ballpark The other night hours glands not a ball game on tv and stadium isn't even fool this pretty empty so we're not back to normal yet So even the legislature isn't back too. You know longtime ago i think The state legislature did leave. It was a different subject and all but that was a long time ago but they did leave town. I don't know exactly what the results were but it. It wasn't overly historic. This one seems to be more historic show. Sixty members of the texas delegation decided that they didn't want to have a vote and So they were docket. You know taking their their their ball bat and go home. That's right. yeah. They went home so they could close it down but They'll probably lose on this. This hope but you know the first reaction ought to be good. They won't be passing any legislation but then might have been going to pass legislation. That could have been helpful. It's the whole principle. What's going on but We saw the pictures of them getting outta town airplane and they forgot a couple things out there. Yeah and then. They also forgot what their position was because They came down very hard for everybody wearing their mascot inconsistent. What i wonder if people will notice We notice here is as well as many other. Millions of people notice which is really a great talking point for us. We've noticed that over the past year when you have a leader our governor somebody coming down real hard on the people follow the rules. Follow the science and then they get caught disobeying their own rules. Yeah people don't like that because what they're starting to recognize is that When people do this hypocrisy that they participate in is really outright lying. That's what it really is. It's lying as demagoguing distorting. The truth is done for political reasons and It's not just done over. Episodes like this with mass s generally. How so much happens in washington so much demagoguery and hypocrisy and i think that's why people rightfully statistically aren't very happy with With with the government especially in washington but unfortunately We don't see enough resistance but we will today mention that. There is still coming more resistance. And that's the only thing that'll reverse reverses. That's true in this. Look at this. I quit here they are. It's an a picture now..

"House official today confirmed that another Biden administration official and an aide to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, tested positive for the coronavirus after attending an event together. At least one of the cases may be linked to a group of Texas Democrats who came to Washington last week amid a battle in the state legislature over voting rights. Six of the Texas lawmakers have tested positive for the coronavirus, including a former nurse who announced her test results today. Simon Marx reports the White House has disclosed that a fully vaccinated staff member has tested positive for Covid 19. And isn't the first. Meanwhile on Capitol Hill, the congressional physician says the delta variant has now been identified in the compounds buildings. Some members of Congress and staff members. Also fully vaccinated are reported to have tested positive for the virus at the White House press secretary Jen Psaki if you're vaccinated You are protected. If you get a case of covid, it will be mild. If you are not vaccinated, you could be. We hope not. But among the professor at the people who go to the hospital and get very sick from the virus. The data is very clear. So part of our objective is also not to stoke fear among people who are vaccinated because the data is pretty clear about their protection. Simon marks

"texas democrats" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"Amazing what they're doing and even better summary than last time all right. I guess i'll let you off the hook this well. I can't wait to tell everybody how right i was. So that's why eager to get to the next one direction des best andrew tours so you may recall our standing listeners. In episode to wait we talked about the lawsuit filed by roy moore and his wife kayla more against sasha baron cohen. We pointed out that. Roy moore of his own volition was represented by larry klayman and and we predicted that it would not be resolved via motion to dismiss but would be resolve early summary judgment motion. Now you might be thinking well. That was two years ago so you were wrong about the early part. No we were not. There was a year worth of litigation over whether to transfer the suit from washington dc to the southern district of new york which it was finally in two thousand nineteen and then there was a year tee. Teeing up the Summary judgment motion earlier this week. The us district court for the southern district of new york ruled in favor of cbs. And sasha baron cohen in every respect which we're going to break down and it was Delightful and this is all related to that show. Right wasn't the america. what was it. it's called. Who is america who is funny. What's that. I have teed up twenty five seconds if you wanna play the clip on the show back. They've now used technology to identify other abnormalities turns out the six offenders at particularly pedophiles secrete an enzyme for the age which is actually detectable. It is three times the level of non votes so the phase sweating like a ripe east is actually based on science. So in israel developed a machine that is used in schools. This this character is ridiculous like yuna brow. that's like absolutely hilarious Okay well that was the critical. The interview moment andrew. What happened there that we need to know about. Yeah okay so as you pointed out right. This is an interview with israeli anti-terrorism expert named general iran. Murad and what is astonishing. Is how long this interview goes. Yeah and roy moore has no idea that he is being sasha baron cohen layup it begins with a whole bunch about like how alabama supports israel and sasha baron. Cohen feeds him. These questions about like right because alabama's estate in which you've always valued equality in. Yes absolutely we're on the forefront of equality and like all of that pretty funny and then there's the clip. You just heard it. She says we've got this a pedophile detector. And of course after add more does not. It's hard to tell without watching the video. But he kind of nods along and at this point he still does not realize he's being set up right he just sits. There answers the questions that sasha baron cohen of course he takes it out and he's like none of us pedophile like i could wave overby death agai- truly an amazing. This was what a i remember watching. I watched the show like episode by episode. As it came out at the time i was just i was just astonished at the brilliance of it. I mean it really is that level of thinking ahead and of planning those kinds of pranks that it's not just like a bs you know press slime dump a bucket a slime on so you know. This is something where he keeps him. Engaged the whole time as you're saying like he keeps him into the interview believing in the whole does pedophile. To and of course it's it's beeping off the charts when he pushes them anywhere near raigmore. And then i think the additional brilliance is sasha cohen. Going oh well you must. Did you low your jacket to somebody and at their and answers questions for another minutes before. Finally walking in connection with the roy moore really is made the following bad life decision which was to hire larry klayman and again. We're talking about you know. Sydney powell and howard klein handler. And the next tuesday. We're going to talk about some. Truly bad lawyers are going to get what's coming to them less lettuce. Pour one out for the long lamented original you know. Og bad lawyer. Larry klayman who decided to sue cbs. Four on behalf of roy moore for defamation intentional infliction of emotional distress and fraud in the amount of ninety five million dollars. Are you telling me. Cbs owns showtime. That's yes appointing news. I hate cbs. And i liked time tricked. I've been had everybody kayla more roy. Moore's wife joined in on the i d. and fraud counts. Okay but not the defamation council and yesterday the opinion came out which was everything we told you which was this was going to get thrown out. We did not have access to the contract. That roy moore signed at the time. The complaint was filed. Now we do. I'm going to link in the show notes. It's really interesting contractor result. So let me say. The court's decision was that all of moore's claims were released by having signed the contract. The contract is incredibly interesting in what it reveals about roy.

"Those are the type of solutions that with being looking at no dow.

"Getting hotter and happening more often. There are a few different ways in which people can dive during exposure to extreme his first of all this heat stroke which most people familiar with. An is quite tempting to think that all deaths during extreme heat exposure can be attributed to heat stroke. That's not necessarily true. Ali jay is a professor of heat and health at the university of sydney. His lab said he's what happens to the human body under these conditions. And what we can do to stay safe. He spoke with our intern. Corey suzuki we have these physiological processes that are in place that enable us to really maintain the internal body temperature quite tightly around what we wanted to a set point temperature the other two factors that determine how hot we get in a particular environment is what we're doing so how much physical activity we're engaging with and and how much heat producing internally from the contractions of muscles and also what we wearing as well because clothing conserve is a barrier to heat transfer from the body to the surrounding environment. So those heat loss mechanisms if we're exposed the heat. A process called veto dilation where we redirect hot blood from deep inside the body call towards the skin surface to facilitate heat loss. And then if that's not sufficient to maintain body temperature we start sweating. That's sweat appears on the skin surface and then in order to liberate he's in needs to evaporate into the surrounding environments. So every gram of sweat evaporates from the skin surface. It takes approximately two thousand four hundred thirty jewish energy which is really quite a lot in terms of when we're trying to estimates what kind of heat balanced status to human bodies in says really effective at maintaining body temperature within safe limits. What are the ways that people can actually die during heatwaves. A lot of people die or get ill during heatwaves if they have vascular disease or maybe kidney diseases well on the pathways for those illnesses or those causes of death are little different so keystroke arises from two things happening basically at the same time. Our heat looks mechanisms. Work way to try to maintain that body temperature within a safe limit but if those are not sufficient or if the environment is so harsh that it doesn't matter what we do physiologically heating up and heating up. Eventually i call temperature will reach dangerous levels so we have the response that i mentioned before where we're redirecting blood away from the body. Core towards the periphery. But what this means is that there's a a lack of blood flow to some of the deep visceral tissues. Which is the gut so we end up. Having effectively a reduction of auction delivery towards the cells of the gut. I'm when that occurs alongside high local tissue temperatures what researchers have shown. Is that the gap junctions that keep all the bad stuff in sawed the guts. They've started to become leaky. So results in multi organ failure coagulation and death. What are you feeling as this process of heat stroke is happening. What does that look like to go through so in. The first case might feel that dizzy. They might feel as though that nauseous. That's a that's a very key. Indicator of the early signs of heat related illness. This is more like something. Cold heat exhaustion which is a mild form of heat related illness and then they can become uncoordinated or they can't communicate typically well. Some of their decisions may seem irrational to. There's a combination of different signs and symptoms out. We can look for in different individuals when they going through a heat related on. What does recovery look like from these ways that people can die during heatwaves. Can you recover from these conditions. The number one gold standard treatment for somebody that is suspected to be experiencing keystroke Illness is aggressive and rapid cooling. The sooner that they can be treated the greater the chances of survival now normally walk this involves as trying to immerse them in an a type of cold water with ice if possible. Try to call them as rapidly as possible so the chances of recovery if they can be treated quickly and the resources are available to apply this aggressive cooling off these individuals than the survival rate of illness and he stroke can be can be very very high. Who's at the most risk during heat waves so during heatwaves the most risk are people who have physiological vulnerability and people who have a resource all social vulnerability so let's first deal with the physiological vulnerability people who have vascular disease people who have kidney disease and aging is also very important factor as well or do know is that there's age related documents in the ability to sweat so as people progressively age their ability to maintain body temperature compromise somewhat so as people reach seventy five or eighty years old theoretically true capacity's really compromised in most people and this becomes even worse or double down if you will if if these people also have other co morbidity he's such as diabetes or if they also have caught a vascular issues but then there's also the social situation as well so the type of resources that people have access to an extreme heat events so number one way in which we know that we can keep cool and stay safe during in extreme heat events where a heatwave is simply by using air conditioning. Now they're very energy intensive and they're actually quite expensive to install and run and many the most vulnerable during heatwaves actually can't afford or don't have access to an air conditioning. What can people do to protect themselves. Yeah it's really important question corey so i mean i think we need to step back and think about who were providing advice to so in settings where there's no ready access to cool air because there's no access to wear conditioning so the type of strategies that we're looking at one of the main ones that we've been trying to get to the bottom of quite recently is the notion of using electric fans for cooling during heatwaves fans working hot environments by helping extra sweat evaporates from the skin surface that otherwise we'd just sit on the skin surface and not cool you down and we've demonstrated that. Actually electric fans can be quite protective for young healthy people up to temperatures as high as forty two degrees celsius around about one of seven degrees fahrenheit. There are other scenarios that we're looking at as well for example what we do in the case of an electrical blackout so in that particular situation where maybe millions of people attending the air conditioning. On at once. What can do the question that we've trying to answer was what you do with water to keep yourself the coolest so what we found under simulated hot humid heat wave such as the ones that we saw in chicago in the late ninety s or very hot dry heat wave. She's the one that we just recently saw in the pacific northwest. We found in the both those conditions applying that water to the skin surface. Something called self. Dousing is very much the most effective way. In which you can mitigate the rise in body temperature the rise in cardiovascular strain and dehydration that can prove problematic but we actually advises people should always try to keep their their skin wet. What they should do is apply watched the skin surface. However you can with the sponge of flannel rag with a spray bottle and what you want to always sees water on the skin surface..

"AI our top story. Texas Democrats who broke quorum and left the state of protest, staying busy in Washington, D. C. They met with Vice President Kamala Harris and state Senator Roland Gutierrez pressed her for federal action to rein in the GOP is not even about party politics. This is about allowing people to have their voice heard. Texas Democratic contingent will also meet with that Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Joe Manchin to push for the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. Schumer says he salutes the Texas Democrats who fled to Washington D. C to block restrictive voting rights legislation. What the Republican governor is doing in Texas is just despicable. This comes after Governor Greg Abbott warned Texas Democrats they can be arrested for fleeing the state to block the GOP measure. But Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick says President Biden is wrong when he calls the GOP proposed voter bill, an assault on democracy and an effort to suppress the vote. I'll sit down with the president, I'll go through the bill, let him show me one place that Jim Crow one place that's voter suppression. There's none in the Bill Patrick made the comments on Fox News at night. Meanwhile, the GOP backed election integrity bill has the approval of the state Senate, even in the absence of Democrats who fled the state Senators passed the bill yesterday with a party line vote of 18 to 4. But the Senate still had a quorum and was able to pass both the election bill and bail reform. If House Democrats failed to return before the special session ends. The Senate vote will be moot, but the governor has vowed to call another special session.

"Systems turns out. Businesses are hungry to solve this problem so it got us thinking who are the organizations out there who are bold enough to embrace. This change is time to hear from the inlets workflow it. We're pulling back the curtain. On how businesses today are driving transformation and growth. Join us for conversations. You won't hear anywhere else. listen now to. Let's work flow it wherever you get your podcasts. When it comes to this. Walkout in texas jessica doesn't just have questions about the democrats strategy. She's got questions about the republican strategy to. That's because with special session. Like this one governor greg abbott. He's got the power to decide the kinds of bills lawmakers consider but once she got the list of legislation state representatives would be voting on. She realized abbott hadn't done anything to convince his democratic colleagues to work with him rather than against him so this was actually really surprising to me. so the laundry list of bills for consideration special session is essentially a grab bag of everything that republicans wanted to pass in the regular session. Didn't get to so. We've got transport spells. We have got a bail bell that would make it harder for people to who have committed certain crimes to get out on a cash bail before their trial which democrats are deeply opposed to We have got a pretty bad abortion. Bill that is floating up to the top of a the legislature There are limitations or tax relief bill for property taxes in texas tax texas. You know it should be. Noted doesn't have an income tax property taxes the biggest way that we collect taxes so democrats don't really want that either. I mean it's it's really just a laundry list of conservative priorities which surprised me because you know the easiest way for abbott. To have prevented a walk out would have been to. In addition to the voting bill put bipartisan. Laws like bipartisan bills. On the docket so that democrats felt compelled to stick around for example in britain dixie. There's plenty to work on right now. That's that's the other thing like with the grid failure back in february or i didn't have power for days like our energy grid is an absolute disaster. If he had put the energy grid on this docket democrats could not have walked out. I mean it would have been so more efficient for him to say all right. Sp one is the voting bell. Sp eight is the energy grid bell like we are going to just put his own to the session. So you have to stick around. You've gotta stick around because you know. A certain percentage of texans do care a lot about voting But it is non nearly an you can imagine why as important as like being able to turn your lights on in the morning and so if democrats had walked out before dealing with the infrastructure bill they never would have lived that down at the voting booth and so i am surprised that brab didn't at least put something on the docket. That would keep them around. That does not preclude him from doing that in a second legislative session that he calls. I think that it is not in high inherently out of the question that he would call a second special session when this one is forced to a close and put something on there that gets at least some democrats back in the state on the floor. So what's happening in the state capital. Now they are carrying on with hearings today making a big fuss over the fact that the democrats aren't there when you say making a big fuss quarter you mean like Ticking or like this one happens. Yes testing fang. They are letting their constituents down. We have important bills to dispose out. Look at all of these important policies. That aren't being voted on right now. They're failing you they're failing you is essentially the the sort of attitude but they're taking and and will And it will take some time before. I think it's clear what the public perception of this walkout in texas is because texas public perception does not always track with the way that media or progressives in the rest of the country. React to the things that texas democrats do to. What do you mean by that. I think that it is entirely possible. That the texas broader public does not look kindly on this walkout as the popular media is looking on this walkout. When i broke the news that they were walking out. It was an immediate deluge of advocates and people out of state and representatives from other states re tweeting and being like. This is so brave. This is amazing so excited that you're doing this. I am not convinced that the texas public is going to feel as positively about this as the people who were on the forefront of voting rights issues generally And that will take a few days to really play out. I mean this is a special session. I think there are a lot of texans. that don't even realize that this is happening right now. A lot of these debates happened in the middle of the night So i think that the texas general public is really getting is just getting up to speed like we all are on. What's happening right now. Is there a chance that politically. Everyone is kind of getting what they want. Here like democrats. Get a look. Righteous republicans get to say that they tried to pass the most conservative agenda that they've tried to get through in a long time but neither actually has to make it work and take their lungs if it goes wrong this is. This is something that i've been thinking about for a long time. i think that republicans don't necessarily need to pass this bill. What they need to do is convince their base that the democrats don't support it because they want illegal voting take place and they want the system to be less secure on the other hand. Democrats don't necessarily have to stop the bill from passing in order to win a political battle here if they can convince the public at large bat. Republicans don't want minority to vote than bad is also a really big drive to the polls. We saw that in georgia for example. And so. i think that we're seeing voting. Be used in this really senecal weigh on. You know i'm going to say on both sides here even though that's a stupid thing to say because i think that it is so obvious that the republic in the long term the republican strategy here is more detrimental to democracy than the democrats. Because i think that there's only so far that you can push your base before they stopped voting entirely it if the message is the system is fundamentally broken. Ben you can turn people out for so long right. They have to believe in the efficacy of the system in order to believe that if they turn out to vote on the basis that the system is flawed that their vote will matter enough that it could fix the system but if you go so far and convincing them that the system is broken that they don't turn out to vote at all. You are in really dangerous territory. Well of course that's their argument for passing bills like this.

"This at front of mine since they do. The first time you know. I had some conversations with gina hinojosa and rafael on chia represents the austin and dallas areas respectively and are part of the mexican american legislative caucus Who has been really really sort of at the forefront of opposition to the spill and they both told me at the end of the the regular session. They were keeping this on the table I think rafael angios words to me. Were you know. I'm not planning on walking out. But if i do i've got friends in low places that i could stay with which i thought was funny And obviously right like you can't charter two planes overnight. They had this plan sort of in their pocket. For a couple of days. I started hearing kind of hushed whispers about a walkout in the capital the night before it happened and was able to confirm it early the next morning when i called a representative who i shan't name and they were actively zipping up their suitcase as i was talking to on the phone here i could hear it like they were like zipping it up throwing things in a bag and their words were like call me later. I can't talk right now. And then i called a second legislator gina hinojosa and she was also zipping up her suitcase and walking out the door. So like be you know. I it was. It was kind of funny. I just call them all exactly at the right moment and i was like well. You've audibly confirmed that you are leaving. I was which was funny thing to do. But you know. I think that the caucus didn't even know exactly when they were going to go and and so they had the plan in motion. But you know it wasn't definitive. I think that they would go or when they would go if they did the last time. Walk out of this scale happened in texas. It was two thousand and three back then. State democrats were protesting redistricting. Legislators fled just across the state border to oklahoma and arkansas. Summer borders played the whole thing for laughs. The washington post described the lawmakers as holding court. In a denny's this time feels different with texas. Democrats taking their grievances to dc on tuesday morning. They gathered on the steps of the capitol in a showy display of solidarity. Believe we i you know what they have said to me is that they're waiting for federal legislation. I like i don't think that it is. It is an exaggeration to say that texas democrats are pissed at their national counterparts because their perspective is you now. We're walking out. We paid six thousand dollars a year. You have a majority in congress and you get paid fulltime to do this job like what the hell are you doing. And and i mean if they have been like. They've not minced words when they have said those things to me I think the night that he walked out of the regular session rafael on chia called me and he said you know we wouldn't have to do this if democrats would just pass the bam bill and you know there. There's a lot of simplifying in that. I mean it's not an easy road for democrats to pass a voting rights bill in congress. They've got a majority but they would still need ten. Republicans less a achieved filibuster reform. And that doesn't seem hugely likely. And i and i feel like the earliest bet. The democrats are going to introduce. Any federal legislation is going to be a month from now. And so you know. I just don't now if holding out for democrats to pass a bill. Nationally is really going to get them to where they need to be because there are timetables are buried different just says the top priority for these democrats is to figure out a strategy. They are juggling the concerns of all kinds of constituents some of them care about the voting rights issue. Some do not so the end game here. It's a little unclear especially when texas republican governor greg. Abbott can continue to call special session after special session to try to get what he wants. I think that there are a couple of different end games. Which is i think. Setting a lot of democrats teeth on edge right because the the caucus is not a is not necessarily in agreement around what the end game is some of them say that the end game is that they're waiting out until the job is done in. Dc which people gina hinojosa and rafael on chia are interpreting the democrats in dc. Pass something which might take a month and a half or more or they might never do that Other democrats say that the end game is forcing republicans to moderate the bill and they'll return and vote on at once it's moderated that could cause a problem that could cause a problem and it doesn't surprise me because if you think about you know i grew up in texas. I love this state. I live here now. I own a house here. i'm gonna loader for the rest of my life like i'm texas through and through and what's always bothered me about the sort of media perception of texas and the public perception of texas as one big state. That has all the same all the way down. But it's just not true and if you think of texas even geographically you can realize that. This state is not one cohesive place everybody has such different motivation and so bear are democrats who represent far more. Socially conservative areas than others and those areas are not going to look kindly on their democratic representatives. Just like busting out and skipping out on the job and so. I think that these these motivations are really gonna kick to play in a couple of weeks when the rubber meets the road and nothing is happening. I mean a mindful of the fact that back in two thousand and three it just took one democrat breaking ranks. Heading back to austin to get the redistricting plan through. Yeah and so. I wonder how many democrats would the republican party need to pick off now. That's not clear to me. Because i don't know exactly. How many have left fifty one needed to leave. I believe that around fifty eight half so if seven comeback then the quorum is restored an they don't just have to come back for ba- legislature right. One of them could have a sick kid right. One of them could have emergency at the business that they own and before st- to return to the state and then they would be fully within deep sites that the department of public safety and texas they would be like completely within their rights to return them to the capitol. And so you know that's why staying away for this long is so hard especially in a situation in which is not their full time job and they do have so many other reasons to return than just the legislature. I think the calculation that abbott is making right now governor. Abbott is that they just can't stay away forever and he's right they can't when we come back. Texas democrats have made their big move but will it pay off. This episode is brought to you by service now and slate studios. hey everybody. I'm katherine minhsiu. Ceo and founder of the news.

"This move is getting familiar. It's getting familiar. Just houston is the editorial director at vote. Beat she covers texas election law and lawmakers she says if you are also getting a sense of deja vu. She doesn't really blame you. Texas democrats did walk out of another legislative session over the very same bill just a couple of months back but this time she says the stakes are higher. The first time they did this back in may democrats walked out but they walked out a couple of hours before the regular session was supposed to end anyway on that day dade phelan. Who is the speaker of the house in texas had met with her democratic caucus and he'd said to them listen. I know you're thinking about walking out and if you do we won't stop you dade phelan. Who is a republican by the way he could've sent state troopers after these. Legislators i mean instead of fleeing the state they were like going for ice cream with their kids right. The states like beth literally through The stakes much lower than they are right now because dade phelan has taken a very different tone now. He said that he will use all resources available to him under the texas state constitution to restore quorum which means law enforcement. Yeah i mean it means law enforcement. I think that a lot of democrats. Don't even really know how this is going to play out because frankly this is basically unprecedented in texas history. This explains why instead of what lawmakers did last time grabbing an ice cream cone and following it up with a press conference this week more than fifty democratic representatives boarded private jets bound for washington hundreds of miles out of the state troopers reach conveniently is also where they're federal colleagues are stubbornly refusing to pass national election reform. They have decided that the only available to them to stop the bill is breaking orem which is mathematically true and so they've decided to break in the most dramatic way possible which was boarding. private chartered. Jets to dc to sit on the steps of the senate capital and stare angrily at joe manchin as he walks past so i guess my question. Is this move may seem familiar to people who've been watching this go on but is this move smart. It depends you know. I think that this is. This is a bit of a losing battle that they're finding urges trying to delay it as much as possible today on the show inside texas democrats second walkout this time. They've gone on a road trip.

The bill texas democrats are protesting is a little different from the bill. They walked down on a couple of months back after they broke quorum last time. Republicans through them some bones removing language that would limit sunday voting for instance. But there's still plenty to take issue with republicans wanna cut voting hours limit. Absentee voting and expand rights for partisan poll-watchers so on saturday when the house opened up for public testimony hundreds of citizens showed up to speak their piece so the special session in the house started at eight. Am they gobbled in. The hearings began because they put the bill third but scheduled it for the same day and they knew there would be. Hundreds of people testifying. That meant that. The public hearing for the bill did not even start until two. Am so people who had arrived at seven thirty in the morning while it was pouring rain in austin on a saturday morning to testify. Had to wait until two am to even begin. The session did not end until seven o'clock the next morning so it almost went twenty four full hours. You can watch this testimony online and it is really striking to me to watch it because when the public testimony is set to begin. There's this switch. In how the legislators are behaving like immediately beforehand. It's kind of a clubby atmosphere. They're asking like hey. Where'd you go to high school like. Hey oh you're from odessa. And then boom the public is testifying and it's just a totally different vibe. Like one of the first people to testify guy in a wheelchair floors your sir vehemently against the bill. And you know. I'm here early this morning. I was here early yesterday morning. We got less than forty hours. Notice that these two hearings were happening simultaneously. So i'm here harshly because you need to see the people that you're affecting. That's why everybody else is here to. And that's what's really. I think kind of stunning about the public show of opposition to the spill. Which is that. We've did only have forty eight hours that it was going to be heard and we only had twenty four hours notice as to win. The bill was only produced. The text of the bell was only produce. Twenty four hours in advance. It's a very long bill. Legislators who were having to question witnesses on the floor hadn't even had a chance to read the full bill And so it was a very rushed proceeding and at the very end of both the senate and the house hearings. The republicans voted it straight to the floor. None of them changed their minds so soon. None of this testimony made a difference. Not even bet now that i think that everybody had made up their minds from the beginning and i think that that is really what set the democrats plan in motion. Which was that like. Even if what they did was technically allowed under the rules they made it as difficult as possible to speak in opposition to the bill. They made it as difficult as possible for the public to get transparency on the bill hearing because it was at three o'clock in the morning and then at the end of all of that putting the public through all of that they voted straight to the floor anyway without considering any democratic immense without making any substantial changes to the bill and without really hearing what the people who were speaking in opposition to the bill would say and i feel like we should just say like nearly five hundred. People said they wanted to talk about this bill. About four hundred of those said they were opposed to the legislation so it was overwhelming. Who in the public showed up here right absolutely overwhelming and and i think that you know it says a lot about the current state of texas politics that not only did they not changed their minds but they also chose not to moderate the legislation in the ways that the public was specifically asking them to. When did you begin to get the sense that the democrats might be thinking of walking out the door. They have hep.

"Fox News. Dozens of Texas Democrats are in Washington, an effort to prevent new voting legislation, which they call restricted from passing. Though the measure has now passed the state Senate vice President Harris had played praise for them for standing up for what they believe in. I know what you have done comes with great sacrifice, both personal and political. And you are doing this. In support and in defense. Some of our nation's highest ideal. Earlier today, the Texas lawmakers met with Senate Democrats urging passage of federal election protection.

As for those Texas House Democrats, Abbott knows they plan to stay out of this special session so he'll call a new one, making them subject to arrest as soon as they arrive back into Texas, regardless of when it is, Abit insists the state's work will be completed.

"texas democrats" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"We will. I shouldn't be laughing as hard as my. But i guess sheila jackson-lee going to retire soon. And they're auditioning for the elect the loud apparatchik position in harris. County is like tryouts. This is tryouts for who's going to be the most. Outrageous texas congressman. Here's a question as they sing. We shall overcome which i believe used to be an anthem that try to abolish slavery and segregation is that when the texas democrats used to own slaves were their private jets with their slaves to go north to try to get emancipating. Was that ever an option. Probably not of course they go to the extreme thing you could possibly imagine. It's literally slavery. Oh yeah you mean for trying to fix ballot custody and have constitutional po watching and do literally expand early voting hours and as we are doing this program right now. The measure league baseball star game. It has their all star game in denver colorado predominantly young white rich city. Meanwhile the black middle class small businesses and fulton county were totally deprived of having the major league baseball all star game in atlanta all because of georgia's voting law. Which was. I'll just give the georgia voting laws. Like four out of ten. It was one of the most vanilla just kind of just not exciting voting measure. Bills that we've seen in recent history. I saw the story at the new york times. And i thought it was very interesting. Says monthly benefit for in the united states starts this week. Three hundred dollars for each child. Tax credit is expected to slash poverty levels. But it's only temporary now. This is part of the american families plan. Which was this ridiculously big unnecessary plan. But this is actually not a bad idea but it's poorly executed. Let me tell you why so. This is about giving people who have had children. Cash and money now traditionally conservatives and republicans have been against this. I would before this. If there was an incentive saying that we're going to pay for families to stay together have fathers and mothers stay in loyal relationships with each other. I'm afraid that the way this is currently designed. It will only subsidize single motherhood even further. Do we shouldn't be afraid of using government policies and programs if it's to achieve conservative aims and ends. This is what makes us different than libertarians. By the way. I had a whole conversation with dana. Lash about this a very good friend of mine. She's super smart. She believes that the government should play no role at all completely indifferent. And what the outcome is. Now by the way if we're if we're serious about rebuilding the american middle class and the american family by reading from the new york times which is just obviously the most dishonest paper we have set of the wash actually actually actually think the washington post is worse. I know that says that says something. I really do. I read them both but the point is that if we were always talking about race all the time which is in intentional distraction from how we could actually govern the country to solve issues and problems. You're always going to have the twenty percent of democrats that have no interest actually accomplishing anything. But this is not altogether in awful terrible idea. We are on the verge of a population collapse in our country. We are on the precipice of more millennials being single than married. Why do you think all of a sudden we need to go bring in millions of people from the third world. It's because we're not having enough of our own children and spare the argument. Well that's not the proper role of government. How about this. What if instead of all the money. We spent on the war in afghanistan which it almost nothing for. Us national security did almost nothing for the wellbeing of america. The the money spent in afghanistan is conservatively five hundred billion dollars. It's upwards of a trillion uncertain estimates list. Just say it's five hundred billion dollars. What if we took half that money. Two hundred fifty billion dollars and we said we're gonna make it easier to have children in america. That's objectively a good thing and more specifically have children. If you stay loyally married to your spouse. That's a very that is an objectively good thing for the nation. Meanwhile the defense department says eight hundred fifteen billion dollars in afghanistan. So it's okay that we rebuild schools in northern afghanistan and bridges that our citizens will never use. But it's not okay for us to try to have population growth so we don't have to so we don't have to bring in two hundred thousand somalians that don't share our values and don't love our country. This is not properly executed. Obviously but we should be unafraid to say that this is not altogether a terrible idea to rebuild the american family so we do not have to reshape our country through mass immigration..

Texas Democrat Lawmakers Look Ridiculous Fleeing the State
"Just watching. I had Fox on here in the background and I'm watching this story about these epic losers from Texas. These Democrat lawmakers, Jim, You and Mike are out there in Texas on the Great Fighting Almighty w B. A P in Dallas, one of our up one of the great stations that carries the show. We love you. But what a bunch of losers! So in case you missed this story, I mean dip wads of the highest order these Texas state lawmakers to avoid a quorum. They fled the state because they don't like free and fair elections. They want to basically vote for people to be able to cheat in elections is Democrats love cheating? So in order to keep the cheating going, they fled this day. Not only flee the same, they're dumb enough to take these dopey something they got these they're taking on the play like one day. These are the big face Diaper brigade to they love the face diapers in the mass. They like the deuce. They want to rock the Deuce, the Triple Mass. Sometimes they're on the plane. Private jets, by the way. No masks at all, which listen great. Good for you. I don't believe in the face Diaper either, but it's just weird. How the Democrats tell you to put your face diaper on. And yet when they flee the state in a private jet that I'm guessing Based on some experiences a local private airport near me, and I know the guy. Well, I'm guessing for that many people on that plane multiple plea. It was probably a couple $100,000 to fly them to Washington, D. C. To get these cowardly chumps out of Texas and enter up on Capitol Hill, Not in Texas, where they're supposed to be doing, you know, Texas type stuff. And they're singing when they're singing is really quite terrible.
