"By the way. We're talking to congressman tom. thomas massie. Are you familiar with the The woman that is now being put up as the head of blm land. I am not but it's it's scary. Proposition heard from you. Yeah yet you need to look into this. This is this is a really dangerous person. She believes that cattle should not be able to graze on public land. That that's insane glenn. We had forty to sixty million bison in north america before the settlers came here. That's the approximately the same size as the beef herd right now so i i say that we are bovine flatulence neutral. When somebody says the cattle are bad for the environment will so you're telling me the bison were bad for the environment so don't believe all this gobbledygook. And i think that would be horrible out there out west because basically a lot of those states are colonies of the federal government because the federal government owns eighty percent. Which some of your states out there in kentucky almost all the cattle are raised on private land. But it's a totally different situation by the way if you like paddle yeah if you liked grasping cattle this is most. This is the greenest way to raise cattle. I know it is. I know it is thank you very much. Thomas massie for being on the program again. That's the prime. Act called your congressman and call your senators. I cannot express in in grave enough terms.

Questions Arise Over CDC Guidance on COVID-19 Vaccines

"A lot of Americans Congressman Thomas Massie already had coronavirus and wanted to know if he should still get a covid-19 seem most everyone has had covid-19 is considered immune but how long immunity last is unknown whether it's after infection or vaccination on award winning scientists himself as he quickly found that vaccine studies showed no benefit to people who've had coronavirus vaccination didn't change their odds of getting reinfected. The controversy began when Massey noticed the CDC was claiming the exact opposite cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices had just issued a high-profile report offered by fifteen scientists. It wrongly claimed Pfizer study proved. The vaccine is highly effective or showed consistent High efficacy for people who'd already had coronavirus. Thar's Covey to it says the exact opposite of what the data says. They're giving people the impression that this vaccine will save your life, even or you know save you from suffering even if you've already had the virus and recovered which has not been demonstrated in either the Pfizer or the moderna trial the mystery deepened when Massey contacted CD-ROM for an explanation as he says he was so alarmed by the misinformation he decided to record the calls on a December 16th. Call cdc's Captain Amanda Cohn C ROM Agree that people who've had coronavirus shouldn't rush to get vaccinated. You know given that there's limited doses right now where we are you suggesting that those people who wait for that suggestion to wait has it always gotten out. Should I get the vaccine if I've already had covered it experts say it's a good idea because they're not sure how protected you are after recovering our full measure investigation examined the database reporting illness after covid-19 scenes. It shows numerous people are getting vaccinated even though they've already have the virus some experts say that's depriving others who need the vaccine most health officials in many kids say they don't have enough vaccine. It's happening across the country promised doses not delivered on the call. In fact Massey for flagging they're mistaken claim that vaccines were proven to work for people who've had coronavirus. I think we'd read that way. She'll go down the other stuff. You know, we just skipped right over it with we know we can't be perfect. I mean they're working on this thing will forever after be known at all but legalized. Okay, and they said thank you for finding the mistake. We're going to fix this and I thought well, okay problem solved. This is how government works but it didn't quite turn out that way two days later the same doctor KO nud probes to fix joined other CDC doctors in repeating the false information this time in an online session for medical professionals. They wrongly claimed studies show people who've had coronavirus home do benefit from the vaccine.

"Eight one three eight one one here's what this fella Thomas Massie this congressman from Kentucky posted he was very very heavily hit today from all sides in Washington DC all sides because he wanted a roll call vote which apparently was unconscionable they might delay for day the two point two trillion dollar bill passing it no actually Nancy Pelosi delayed for a week and I live in support to at least have this bill please have this bill will do nothing he says I swore an oath to uphold the constitution and I take that seriously in a few minutes I will request a vote on the cares act which means members of Congress will vote by pushing yes or no or press the constitution requires a quorum of members be present to conduct business in the house right now millions of a central working class Americans are still required to go to work during this pandemic such as manufacturing line workers and health care professional by the way well how do you think's gonna builders ventilators a GM people robot smart people running robots and people lots of people I reckon those assembly lines for the masks for the ventilators for the respirators for the downs for the pharmaceuticals thank god your shop at the store I think the federal government just says stuff the ship is right so too much to ask Congress to vote and why the hell Nancy Pelosi send them home in the first place the pandemic she says well then GM auto shut the hell right based on that logic so we're not producing anything what do you take it over I know the army run it what next anyway right now millions of the central working class Americans he said are still required to go to work during this pandemic such as manufacturing line workers healthcare professionals pilots grocery clerks cooks and chefs delivery drivers auto mechanics janitors to name just a few sick too much to ask the house to do its job just like the Senate did the day before I'm not denying that she's me I'm not delaying the rights the bill like Nancy Pelosi did last week the bill that was worked on in the Senate late last week was much better before speaker Pelosi showed up to destroy it and I days and days to the process this bill should have been voted on much sooner in both the Senate and the house and it should be stocked full of Nancy Pelosi's pork including twenty five million for the Kennedy center grants for the national down for the home should review manatees in arts and millions more other measures that have no direct relation to the corona virus pandemic that twenty five million for example should go directly to purchasing test kits so this guy's not irrational they try to paint I'm like I'm not the number one priority this bill should have been to expand testing availability and creation of tests so that every American not just the wealthy and privileged and by the way not just sports figures have access the testing we shut down the world's economy without adequate data everyone even those with no symptoms needs immediate access to the test he is saying just like South Korea did just like these these these brilliant man at Stanford and Yale experts experts not back country codes have set test everybody they'll know exactly what we're dealing with here and then you'll see what it infinitesimal small percentage are dying from this every human being matters those of us who are pro life will point that out over and over again we don't think life is a choice but we need to deal with the data he said the bill creates even more secrecy around the federal reserve that still refuses to be audited allows the federal reserve to make decisions about who gets what how much money will print with no transparency it's getting us into six trillion more dollars in debt doesn't matter then why are we not giving getting three hundred and fifty trillion more in debt or I why are we giving out one million dollar checks to every person in the country I said this yesterday as a matter of fact he's right this stimulus should go straight to the people rather than being funneled through banks and corporations like this bill is doing two trillion dollars divided by a hundred and fifty million American workers is about thirteen thousand three hundred thirty three dollars per person that's much more than twelve hundred dollars per person check authorized by this bill so he should be excommunicated Mr producer they voted ninety six zero in the Senate is not shocking here's what's bothering me even more even if you're going to vote for this can you say I voted for this but I'm not voting for something like this again I voted for this even though half of it is port they don't even say that they're celebrating the fact that it's the biggest biggest spending bill in human history and in the house of representatives ladies and gentleman your representatives you have no idea how they voted they'll tell you how they voted but it's not a recorded vote is that what your constitution set is that why we have representative government this thing is negotiated by a relative handful almost a pull up your type in the Senate Pelosi says she's going to support it only because she says it's gonna be a fourth and a fifth iteration of this thing she rounds up the troops of of I guarantee almost none of them address it's whose team are you on what the media says ninety six to zero you can't be the one against the so this guy has the guts he's not don Quixote's just looking at the constitution he's looking at you and he said Hey let's have a well no no I can about this one jerks holding up everything I have no idea how my Congress voted she's a left wing cook a freshman maybe she'll announce that she voted yes I don't know but that's not a recorded roll call vote which is what compelled when you're talking about the biggest spending bill in human history it's going to affect each and everyone of you even if you're one of the few who's not getting a check or some kind of subsidy your children and grandchildren are paying for this this is not free the money is not free it's not backed by a damn thing well by the good faith and credit of the federal government very cool your children and grandchildren and generations yet born there on the hook for this you understand and you don't know what's in it and you don't know how your member the house voted that's the guy's point and he's right and I'm no radical libertarian as you well know I'm a constitutional some believable I mean look at this look at a Maryland you got this rhino governor he's even worse than that get this rhino governor and among those who are central service employees in Maryland according to governor Hogan and the comptroller Peter Franchot over whatever the hell his name is are the packs prepares in Maryland tax preparers tax preparation services are considered essential services may remain open for business during the state's rotavirus emergency response see if you work for the state or you have some crucial role that the state needs your central if you're a working stiff you're not you're not the boy I've got so much to discuss with you it's not even funny here's the order here's the here's how The Washington company by the way and I'm not I tell you over okay I'm not one who wants to sabotage the president or sabotage the fight against so this I'm raising issues because I don't know if anybody else is raising these issues in the administration that salaries and we were the first here to bring up the ventilator I don't mean just say Hey we don't have ventilators actually look into this matter and the hospital beds in ICU beds dug deeply you are here you are with me the death rates which I always question because it never made any sense we don't have much testing at all early on how do you know the death rates when you don't know who has the virus we still don't know who has the virus with these outrageous news rooms putting those charts endlessly all up on the screens about confirmed cases of the virus and deaths and I'm not going to go over this again and again and again we get to but how many cases of the virus are there we don't know and all these deaths directly related to the virus maybe somebody had a bad heart or something we don't know so what if we keep pushing this stuff because the CDC does W. W. H. O. does in this hospital does in that hospital and they have maps and charts like it's election night they have numbers like it like it's some kind of a soccer game we take this extremely seriously but all of it seriously that health a medical issues the life and death issues economic issues I posted something today and I've said this to you many many times right by this microphone if we have an economic collapse there is no health care there are no assembly lines the order around the big ventilators you think the system is overloaded now there will be no system they can't see or be worth nothing of course people will be showing up for work to be foraging for food this simple society becomes the jungle I've written about this others have written about this when the rule of law is no longer the rule of law and this day's gonna come most of us will be dead and gone a long time but the question is whose head is is going to fall on your children your grandchildren or great grandchildren or three generations from now you can't spend like this you can't print like this without consequence then they're not done the Democrats have warned us they're not done Washington compost lousy crappy newspaper president trump compel General Motors to manufacture ventilators to help handle the surge of patients using his power under the defense production act he will be praised for this in the live media on the morning schmo and make a smile and all the rest yes yes make use of it being a dictator we need him to do these things quote our negotiations with GM regarding its ability to supply ventilators have been productive but our fight against the viruses to action to allow the give and take of the contracting process to continue to run its normal course GM was wasting time today's action will help ensure the.

Ocasio Cortez that Morse into well everybody should have universal pay everybody should have and then and then it was just gross and pretty soon it becomes it just leaves reality why can't everybody have free education free free free free free free free and once you get people to buy into that that if it's coming from the government it's free it's insanity it's our money it's our government says

Orleans right now with the people that have the corona virus and people that are very sick and and and the death toll all of a sudden New Orleans is being discussed as a potential epicenter of covert nineteen as as New York I think at the moment New York is still one of the more drastic situations and the closest in our own country to things that are happening internationally but do you think the

up that can I can't believe I'm even saying free it up but you know what I mean why don't we just take the restrictions off the following counties because we're in pretty good shape here and just make

"Up by one GOP lawmaker Thomas Massie who will talk to just after two o'clock on the Rush Limbaugh show he wanted to force a delay he wanted a recorded vote he wanted a quorum he wanted more than fifty percent in person on the floor of the house constitutionally that has been dictated now this is an enormous package this is historic and as we discussed yesterday many think it's a portal to socialism it opens the door for what we did for Copa ninety can we do that now could you just send the regular checks I mean I really don't have to get up now some people some people think we're all two extreme on that as far as us as conservatives people the media thank but I I just don't think the media really cares or pays attention to the fraud and abuse and to the millions of people that take advantage of the kindness of other people I'm not just talking about criminals I'm talking about people that engage in fraud people that engage in they have three social security cards people that you know are cutting checks this the whole thing I just don't think that gets enough attention and I wish the news media would spend more time on the billions and billions of dollars that gets

"Or a lockdown order or some type of order or directive from or mandate from your particular local or state government would like you to weigh in on that also there's a couple things that are developing that right now that we have to share with you we have a Republican congressman Thomas Massie and it appears he's forcing a delay on the corona virus a bill because he believes that there should be a quorum which is constitutional of course the constitution does require a quorum fifty percent attendance or twenty two hundred fifteen members for legislation to pass and he will raise this as a point of order to enforce the rule in instead of having the voice vote where site highlight Mimi you use that in a day whatever okay so obviously this is there are both sides to this argument and we'll discuss them there are both sides here we have quarantine issues we have social distancing we have a pandemic we have a national emergency but we also have a constitution so we'll be discussing that as well let's go to rural Montana this is Doug hi Doug you're on the Rush Limbaugh show hello hi Doug hello how are you today I'm feeling great welcome to the show well I'm glad to be on and I was glad to hear from rush and I was told to get to the point I have a couple of things the Amos a presidential candidate bullock our governor has assisted me in a shelter in place order that takes effect tomorrow and we've got a sum total of a hundred and eight confirmed virus cases and I'm totally against the scent stimulus and I'd like to tell our congressman Jim forty and R. one senator Daines who did vote for the stimulus I'm gonna do whatever I can to get them primary don't now the main reason I'm gonna make a presumption here correct me if I'm wrong you think it's that it's just pretty much a doorway into socialism right it's just a door at the doorway into government taking everything over I don't call them Democrats anymore I call that the Communist Party and that that may be not kosher where you're from but that's that's the way a lot of people think all I have to tell you it may not be called kosher in central Pennsylvania in public but in my house it's very kosher and I would like to sell a nephew of mine bart in Colorado I'm amazed I got on the show this is my first time I called their production and I didn't get to talk to rush but I hurting I'm happy yes but I gotta tell you came up on the same call screen is Russia's did so it is a historical thing you know I'm not going well done will be safer in two dot Montana off what is it called we are that good and you know I might ask rush if I got this secret phone number up maybe maybe I could get a still some died jog I about thank you for your call you bring up a great point and Doug is not the first person to refer to the leftist Democrats as a Communist Party and I do put that left just in there because I know for example one of my attorneys is a Democrat I mean hard core but he's a thinking Democrat has a brain he has a brain and that's the only area that is there's a little friction but it's respectful it's the bait it's it's fun sometimes it's actually fun those days are gone those days are gone that they ended they ended when that very first research came out in the fall of twenty fifteen and that research said and by the way this is all public you can find it you can be it's all in the emails that were dumped on wikileaks from the Democrat party and that tells the whole story I'm hoping someone's going to make a movie about it I don't have the money to make a movie about it but someone should make a movie about all the things that were going on in the shadow of president Donald trump's campaign to his transitional period to the early days of his administration because you'll be shocked but so much of it is in those emails and someone was panicking in early twenty fifteen and they said they sent information to several members of Hillary's campaign and Hillary and you can read it you can download it you can print out I have at my house it's really cool I know I'm a geek some people enjoy life they're out there they're golfing there'd there whatever their happy hour I'm I'm down only wiki leaks and putting it out with a highlighter but it is fascinating to see someone say in writing in twenty fifteen to the Hillary campaign guys guys heads up president trump's message is really resonating with working people and women then you know what the next line says we need to make sure we keep hammering he's a sexist and they continue write down all the things that you have heard about trump we're part of a strategy to neutralize trump and we all know this right but when you see it that's when you really get the the shock that's when the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and you go oh my god if it's a strategy will send memos to all the news people trump is this trump is that he's a misogynist he's a sexist trump doesn't like Mexicans are what and that's how we'll combat it because as early as twenty fifteen president Donald Trump is a candid it was resonating with Democrats independents and Republicans and as you know he got more women Republican votes than any other president in history and this really scare the heck a lot of the Democrats so when I talk about how hard the left isn't people call it people say you know Bernie's a communist you know they see communist I don't know what L. Han Omar is at this point she hates everything she just doesn't she hates everything she's just in a in a constant state of hate I don't understand it bring up some of rallies on social media eight hundred two eight to twenty eight eighty two sell obviously our last caller is frustrated with the stay at home orders but you know a lot of people are I'm getting emails from around the country for my friends in California the Carolinas Florida if in some of the township's there's the stay at home we mentioned this earlier we had a a nurse call from the Bronx and she was talking about you know they also have the the stay at home saying or shelter in place there's so many different names for it which worries me but you do understand constitutionally these are big deals now I'm not saying we have to lose sleep over it yet but we do need to pay attention as people living in a country with the greatest constitution on earth we have to pay attention to this because the way he even before the corona virus the Democrats have always played fast and loose with the first amendment they've always played fast and loose with that the top two the first is taking a minute to me they they go hand in hand but when you think about think about twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen think about the news coverage think about the comments think about the well we need to make sure that people don't say this on social media and you can meet in our auditorium but you cannot say this or you're allowed to meet in this auditorium but only this many of you all those things are violations of the first amendment but we've become used to it that's the only thing that scares me and that's what that nurse mentioned you know we don't want to become used to it we I don't want to be in a situation where I want to hop in my car this weekend and go to the gun range with my son and I got a worry okay am I allowed to do that how are we are we allowed to travel freely in our country now even if I don't and and I'm not saying I have a right to go to a movie theater in fact somebody that's not what I'm saying but you do realize the stay at home the police will give you a ticket saying is kinda scary it's a little scary I completely understand if you say can wait we don't want you on a bus we we don't want people flying sorry you can't go to the movie theater it whatever I get that but what if I just want to drive to a bike trail and go biking with my sons or something that's a little scary and that's what we need to pay close attention to because it's when your afraid when you're vulnerable when you lose hope and that's one of the reasons mainstream news media is so good at sucking the hope from you that's why you don't get recovery numbers more good news about the economy or good news about trump because when you're not hopeful and you're afraid and you feel vulnerable as a population that's when you look at the constitution to go well you know I I know there's a first second fourth and tenth amendment but you know come on it's kind of tough out there and the tenth amendment by the way is what protects the state's from the government overreach but then we hear a lot about what's happening in California and Michigan and New York and other states and so and I do believe that the news media is not covering as much of it as they can because I don't think they want to start another issue or problem and I'm not there yet I'm not there where I feel like this is an outrage get your Pitchfork I'm not there yet because what I see is the the handling of this so far so good and I'm going to admit and like many of you I trust president trump thus far he's given me no reason not to trust him so I combine all that and I can rationally look at it but that's something else we're going to be covering today and I want to talk about congressman Thomas Massie if you want to weigh in on that do you think he's right to say hold on a second this is the biggest aid package on earth we should know who voted for and against it or do you think trump was right telling him get out of the party trump told her clear to check you should be thrown out of the party and New York congressman said congressman Massie you're not a libertarian you're on American and I just don't think it's unamerican to want to really adhere to the constitution there's gotta be another way we can convince them we'll be right back when you wear the Limbaugh letter you're pressed to combat liberal badness because rush most applies.

get a quorum which is two hundred sixteen members right the report is one source saying gas the Massey show right now so he's running the whole thing what well the thing is is you're not going to before represented a Massey you're not going to change anything right you may get you know you may get some Flack from your you want should possibly show your constituents in your district in Kentucky that you stood ground and you want to force it to a vote so you can be on record of saying no but it's not going to change anything and I don't know that it helps you much and you're just right because every I'm glad you explained that because in a voice vote either you are not registered right for for how you voted and so apparently he wants to make it clear but house leadership advise members on Thursday to it last night Thursday evening to come back to Washington on Friday morning if possible as tall tall or top lawmakers told the hill dot com they anticipate that representative Thomas Massie Republican of Kentucky would call for a roll call vote on the two trillion dollar stimulus package passed in the Senate earlier this week house Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and house minority leader Kevin McCarthy aim to pass the bipartisan measure via voice vote in the lower chamber in an attempt to minimize the health risks for members who have traveled long distances amid the pandemic but according to multiple house members messages threatening to derail leaders plans taking issue with its cost and the process used to pass it through the upper chamber Mr horror and Mr McCarthy previously expected that the vote on HR seven eighty four of the corona virus aid relief and economic security act would be done by voice vote but there is now a possibility that the house Republican may suggest a quorum that if a court that suggested of a quorum is not present an attempt to call for a recorded vote on final passage sources and horrors press shop said we have notified our members of the possibility that the bill may not passed by voice vote the majority leader's office has sent notice to members that if they are they are able and willing to be in Washington DC by ten AM to do so they are encouraged to do so while exercising all due caution so there you go yeah and it's going to pass and yeah it's I mean it's gonna pass we know what's well if you just if you're doing this just to put yourself on record for your you know constituents in your district this isn't the one this isn't the battle to pick I understand as a fiscal conservative I get it if you're looking at this the weight Lindsey Graham looked at it and a lot of people looked at it then Lizzy Graham you know fought the fight and try to get as a member of post on that unemployment thing limiting that unemployment so people wouldn't make more on unemployment total than they do with their jobs right now I get that but the point is is that you're going to be the one guy and trust me things change when people are waiting for that cash because they've been told now for what probably the last twenty four thirty six maybe forty eight hours how much money they're going to get they've been able to figure out how much money they're going to get even in your district representative Massey there are people who may be otherwise fiscally conservative but they're going to bite the bullet here because they want that money in their bank accounts the point is is that I don't think this battle works for you politically I don't think it works for anybody politically right now because you simply say I was one of the notes for the for the for the voice vote but it's not going to be an issue now this is not going to be that issue if you wanted if you really wish to start off is to stand up as we've said in normal times it's like you and I were looking at at social media yesterday and we said where were all these people in so called conservatives in normal times right when we were the ones railing against where the Republicans were going and taking you know taking the hits Ford from Republicans who now believe in much more government spending in normal time price the the problem is the problem of where we've gotten to is not because of even flawed bills that are passed in dire emergencies in extraordinary time brought it's because we spend too much in normal times right and I saw a ton on social media yesterday of Republican conservatives who were outraged you know for example by twenty five million dollars you know for the national domino the arts of the Kennedy center whatever and just furious about it as if the world had ended yeah right anyone I asked where were you the last couple of years where were you when Republicans were in charge where were you Republicans are saying well we can't find it now get well now you're going to fight it right and some of the money being spent you know when you talk about those things is not a great day look twenty five million twenty five million but it's not a great deal of money when we look at the spending that has been done in other places which is the hot in in the form of hundreds of billions of dollars right yeah the permanent stuff I mean you look at the like the permanent change that we've we've seen with more more the tendency to spend more and more and a run of a trillion dollar deficit I'm not blink I look I don't remember maybe he was but I don't remember Massey in those times being you know the the the forefront on fox news at look I'm gonna be on fox news and say the spending that that the Republican Party is going for and you people on fox or even endorsing mmhm but you're not fighting for this where was he then right if you're damn furious about it to hold this up where were you back then again on principle I might agree with you in fact I had several worry right I'm telling you it if you're looking for political points in your district this isn't about this isn't the one this is a good this is not going to get you that win it's

"Welcome to the a program let's go to Thomas Massie and washing you're not actually in Washington are you Thomas actually I A. R. soon either she's sorry for that you're going to get there I'm sorry that you actually had to be in Washington yeah here I'm in Washington so Thomas tell us what's actually in this bill it's a six trillion dollar bailout if you add what the fed is putting on top of it and that's without all the other stuff the fed is already done so six trillion dollars I don't even begin to understand it tell me what the tell me what tell me what the geniuses of done well they're so smart and they're not even sharing the language with this yet so supposedly they came to an agreement last night it's a thousand pages and you got the price tag right as far as what I'm hearing but there's no tax literally all I have to go on is the dear colleague letter from Chuck Schumer to the other Democrats where he's bragging on the victory that he got in the bill that that is all that's the most substantial representation of the bill that I have right now and I suspect they're going to try and pass it here in Congress on a unanimous consent without ever having congressmen but how does that happen how can we possibly spend six trillion dollars and not actually have a vote what does that even mean how does that work it it means that Congress is just a bunch of unix at that point is what it means it means that the administration people within the administration and then two or three other people and a bunch of lobbyists got together and wrote a bill and instead of even giving it the imprimatur of the congressional debate we they're just going to try I believe I could be wrong I believe they're just going to ask for unanimous consent the demon all it's like you wouldn't even want to do you have to do you have to vote on that no it should do it so what is the way that always that constitutional at all is that mean that Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell and the boys all got together and and came up with something and then they get the only vote that's basically what it means now there are some where in the constitution is that you know the constitution says you have to have a quorum to do business in Europe right which is which is in the house of representatives two hundred eighteen so and what they do is the speaker assumes that there's a quorum unless somebody raises an objection and points out that there's only one person in the room but this speaker has really bad eyesight and doesn't count very well so if there's one person in the room the speaker as soon as there's a quorum and business goes on are you gonna at least stand up and say there's no quorum I want to count there are there are a few of us here in Washington DC I don't want to say who the other colleagues are okay they wanted their cordon down but we were talking about did the travesty here because what because this is probably by the way this is the third bill this is the third coronavirus bell that will have passed if it passes and they're already talking about bill number for a bill number five oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh it is in the middle trillion dollars it's it's over Thomas I mean we have to do something but not not not to give everything away as so there's nothing left I mean you know I just what little I know what little I know does the bill just say you know what hold on mortgages you don't have to pay for mortgages for three months until everybody gets back to work or you can't for close on people I know the government is not foreclosing on people but how about regular banks because they're getting the back door four trillion dollars how about that how about how about who we're going to make sure that you get immediate unemployment that's fine no payroll tax we're not going to print money we're just not going to take money from you none of those are in there well this would be common sense things but you can be sure that the banks are going to be made whole it and and maybe even more than all but here's the problem go and let's say this shut down that the governors have perpetrated on our economy takes four trillion outer six trillion out we inject six trillion back in you can't eat the money right farmers still need to grow who manufacture still need to make insulin like you know automobile major error truck manufacturers still have to make a ambulances to get people to the hospitals right just Thomas yesterday yeah go ahead go ahead but just because you put the same amount of money into the economy that you took out doesn't mean you've created any goods are grown any food that's the problem we have here going into day they're asking us to jump off a cliff but they're not telling us how far it is the bottom or what's at the bottom I I got in my car yesterday and I just needed to get out of the house for a while so my wife and I took a drive and we drove through a little a little town here called Southlake Southlake town square centre really nice very really just this quaint little thing and in the town it was like a horror movie it was like everything that you've ever seen and what was that that the the quiet movie or the you know the one where the monsters are coming out what's that movie still where the monsters hear noise quiet place walking dead he had a quiet place yet walking dead a quiet place it with the old may get man it was there was no place to spend the money there was no interface to spend the money if you had money so how is this going to other than paying my mortgage and making sure that I have money to get food what else do you need money for right now what else housing you need medicine there's a whole number of things you the body for I am but I'm saying you can't do that stuff that's the stuff that should be covered right now and not just giving me a check with giving me a check you don't you're not even means testing you're not even you're not even looking at what I'm going through now you're just giving people a check for fifteen hundred dollars some people have their jobs other people just don't have their jobs but there's no testing on that this is ridiculous this bill is ridiculous I did see a Chuck Schumer said in his letter that the money will keep coming and tell this crisis is over like so how do you know it's two trillion dollars once you promised to pay people money for as long as this goes on and what is the when what is the the end look like we can somebody define the end I've been looking for trip wires when is this crisis over when we're all going back to work or does the crisis continue because we have damage to our society and to the engine of capitalism and so this continues on for another year another two I mean this is opened the floodgates the flood gates and it's conditioning an entire generation to a paternalistic government going if I told you four weeks ago did the governors would come out and tell people they can't go to church you'd think I was crazy but you know I was really insane if I said and people are going to stay home and the churches are going to close and they're going to do to sleep do what the government says and you know I I disagree with no I don't think so I think people I think Americans want to do what's right for America and so when the president came out and said maybe we should maybe we should all stay at home everybody wants to do the right thing but the right thing also includes saving the nation it also includes not just saving people we are more we're an idea we're a nation where at in a common me the idea is being killed the economy is being killed our our opportunity to revive the idea and the nation and the economy is being killed there is there comes a point where you have to look at it like the president has been saying and saying you don't guys you can't just tell everyone to stay home for the next two months it's just not gonna happen there's nothing left at the end there will be nothing last added to it you know people are going above and beyond what is necessary to do the right thing there's a hot line now in Kentucky where you can turn in your neighbor you can check if you see somebody do something that the governor said not to do there's a hotline that the governor set up and I called it just didn't see it I thought well maybe the probably staff it with off shore you know a call center but as it turns out they are the governors actually just taken people that used to work in other departments and conscripted them to take these calls where people go Nichinan their neighbors and it's busy so it's like you can't even get through there so many people snitching on their neighbors dining dress that's so dangerous that is the one thing we've never had that Europe always did is they had snitches and you never knew who was snitching on you we've always trusted our neighbor Thomas I I actually don't have a problem with the governor's doing it you know the the heavy lifting and all of that stuff but I am a much bigger problem with the with the government the federal government doing it because there's no last resort they are the final policemen they're the final stop and what the governors are doing bikes telling president trump that he has to do okay the National Guard is insidious they're doing it but I think because they don't want to spend the money and if he calls it then the feds pay for it if the state calls it then they're off the hook so this the governors are and wanting the president to call but you can not allow the federal government to have controlled nation wide of the National Guard if I'd give a govern a big a governor wants to do it that's fine people can get away from that governor to forty nine other states but if the president does it and they don't release the power there's no place to go that's a that's a great point you know one of the points I've made about the governor's doing these things some of my colleagues here say look this is a government taking the government is taking something from people their livelihood so we must pay the people back for their their what was taken from the but I'm pointing out that it's the governors who are taking and if the federal government who is giving back so we are now with this bill we will be incentivizing governors to destroy their own economy and to put people out of work and if anyone have one governor who stood up to all of it now the federal government coming in and saying well you might as well go in with the rest of the lot because now we are going to finance all this malfeasance right on to me price and there are there are states that are looking at these other states like they're crazy I mean it it it's you know the cities here in Dallas have been looked and been blasting our governor because he hasn't but the entire state on lock down the entire state doesn't need to be unlocked on it down maybe Dallas does maybe Houston does and those those mayors can do that as they say you see fit but it needs to be held at the lowest possible level and does not need to be the entire state what's happening in Seattle doesn't mean it's happening in Spokane Washington that's correct it's the only way we're going to know that by the way is testing either something the government is saying which really annoys me is they say we don't want everybody tested everybody doesn't need to get tested actually that's how we get out of this is when we know who has it and who doesn't yes we when we do we should all be eternity we should all be tested and then we can go back to work those who don't have it tested clear go back to work Thomas thank you so much for all that you do for the congressman from Kentucky Thomas Massie we'll be watching you and the the rest of the the congressmen and the senators today in the house and the Senate as they as they maybe don't even vote on the six trillion dollars being spent thanks.

"thomas massie" Discussed on Ron Paul Liberty Report

"Hello everybody and thank you for tuning into the Liberty report with me today. Our Co host Daniel. Good to see you. How are you this morning? Dr Paul Very well thank you and we're GonNa have a very special guest. He's been with us before but he's a famous person understanding. He has a unique home that he's very proud of because he wanted his own hands. I've always MARLA. That's the well-known famous freedom fighter from Kentucky. Thomas Massie Thomas. Welcome to the program. Hey thanks for having me on. It's an honor very good. Someday I'll get up there to see that famous house built but I don't know anyway. We have serious things to matter but somebody said the other day that Ron Paul. You're smiling too much so today. I'm not going to smile at all. We're going to just be concerned about the policies though. No there's no reason why we are not allowed to smile but we have to smile because we know what the problems are is just that they won't listen to us. We know we knew how to prevent breakdown of society How to prevent the bubbles from forming? And we know what to force. The math made says that that the government shouldn't be snooping honest and we shouldn't have things like the Patriot Act. We have guys like you Thomas. They're protecting us so. Welcome to the program and tell us what's on your mind. I know our audience is very interested in your opinion about what's going on with corona virus. Yeah well before we get to corona virus. Let me tell you what. The government is doing Particularly Congress while everybody's distracted by the corona virus they Passed a reauthorization of the Patriot. Act last week I railed against it. I tried to stop it. I voted against it. They had I. I say thin varnish of reforms on there but was designed to whitewash the unconstitutional activity. That's been going on but the Americans are the ones who got shellacked by this bill. Now it had some small reforms in it to the FISA and also to the Patriot Act but when it went over to the Senate and this has happened in the last twenty four hours instead of passing the house. Bill which was bad they just did a clean reauthorization of the Patriot. Act with no improvements whatsoever. The only good news is is. That's a seventy seven day reauthorization and we'll have to come back and dress this later as if people have more willpower to To fix this or or or better yet. Just get rid of it. After you know seventy seven days I don't think that will power is going to be there but anyways that's what's happened while we had the weapon of mass distraction the corona virus going on and. I don't mean to downplay the seriousness of the corona virus. I think is very serious but I think the cure that our government is coming up with is worse than the disease. I think there'll be more suffering more deaths because of the things that Government particularly governors are doing right now. They're shutting down entire industries depriving people of their livelihoods. And they're saying it's all okay we're GONNA send you some money we're gonNA print more money and we're going to bail out the airlines we're GONNA bail out the banks basically you know when they make the interest rate zero in the bank still loan money at three percent. That's a gift to the banks There other gifts that are going on but It's there's not a whole lot to be happy about. Yeah I still try to smile to all right very good. Daniel President Trump Mister mass has been pretty good on the FIS itself and I think a lot of us because he was a victim of the abuse of Pfizer courts. Obviously with this campaign I think he tweeted recently about that. They shouldn't be able to spy on campaigns. And of course should be able to spy on anyone. What did you get any sense as to where the president might be? I think he was threatening to veto if they tried to pass as it. Was you know completely any sense of where he might be? Even if they just kicked down the road I think he'll probably Signed the one that kicks the can down the road. Seventy seven days I think he should veto it. I think he should have if the house bill had made it through the Senate. I would okay would veto that. He's got so much power here to fix this. The problem is he's got advisers like Attorney General Bar who were saying no just Let me fix this myself And that's a problem like some of his advisers are standing in the wrong direction. President HAS EMITS. It meant negotiating leverage on this. All he's got to do is veto it and say no take out this buying power. They've tried to put stuff in there like says to make it harder for you to spy on candidates and members of Congress. The problem is people like Carter. Page weren't candidates right and so and the whole of the American people most of them thank goodness aren't politicians. It's where's the protection for them in this bill. It's not there you know. You mentioned something about distraction. And of course it's easy to distract people from ordinary events when they think about corona virus but the economy's in shambles and it's all because of the virus which. I disagree with because I think many of us had talked about it and you agreed for you. Know the monetary policy leads to these kind of bubbles that burst and but at least now they are distracted by. And nobody's talking about the real culprit is the Federal Reserve. But he's also a distraction from an ongoing foreign policy. That is not exactly the best foreign policy and unfortunately it's bipartisan foreign policy. Instead of the bombing in the friction in Iraq and Iran has actually picked up because when we go after Iran. We have to do it in Iraq. But then we put on more sanctions already in shambles. The policy That part of the Problems that we have is generally ignored. Because it's much easier to lock people off. Because they have a real bad cold it could get worse. Yeah I think there was a lot of attention actually being paid to Afghanistan and Iraq and I do believe the president wants to get us out of there but here again. He listens to advisors Who aren't advising him. Well on this Many of whom would like to see us in war forever but I would hope that the American people get really angry at their government first spinning all this effort time attention and money overseas on war when we've got a war here domestically against the virus like that should be our top priority and now we're having our resources drained off. I did see one idea that. Like One of these veterans groups called for calling back every member of the National Guard back to the United States like bring him here and let them work for the states. Get him out of the foreign countries. This'll be great opportunity to do that. That's great idea. Absolutely you touched on Thomas. The the way the governors are reacting to this and even mayors are reacting to a disease in the. Us killed now just over one hundred people. We suspected the numbers. Of course it's a happy occurrence when people die from disease but we know there have been at least twenty two thousand people who died of the seasonal flu over the past few months We didn't shut down the country. So this whole shutting down the country over one hundred people. You can't even get the sanitary facilities you need for a decent life. Something seems to be happening here. It's very Chilean fact on yesterday's program. We read a quote from a friend of ours said. Suddenly we woke up and realized we're living in North Korea. It almost feels like that way. It feels like that a little bit here in Kentucky there was a man who the government claims tested positive although the they didn't provide him with these test results and he went home and they told him to self isolate or quarantine and he said that you know he wouldn't or at least that's what the media is saying and so they posted a sheriff's deputy outside of his house and my question is what would they do if that man walked out and gotten his car. Would they shoot him? Would they suit up and has matt uniforms and drag him off that those are the images that we saw in China? Two months ago and everybody was appalled at those images. And now we're literally we could be five minutes away from that happening here in the United States here in Kentucky I think It's crazy and what concerns me. The most is that once people start accepting that in our own country the fact that somebody could mobilize you. Without due process that when this virus over people will have more paternalistic view of government and and more tolerance for ignoring the constitution Thomas your suggestion about bringing home the National Guard you know I think is a great one. The whole thing is is They have been sent over their first place. This building up at the last ten fifteen years people when they got in the National Guard so many could be single women going into it for financial reasons and four or five tours in the Middle East in wars that we didn't win or never intended to win. But you know there was one I thought was good news and Daniel and I've talked about this and that is NATO. You know they have these big wargames ready to get started and we have troops over there ready. We're supposed to send a total of twenty thousand troops to practice war and All of a sudden. They're changing their tune. Oh we're not supposed to be doing this so They quit sending them and they're supposed to bring them home in. My prediction has always been the empire will end not because we come to our senses but because we run out of money and right now we have a lot of money. But it's GONNA lose. Its value rather rapidly in the way it's going the maybe maybe we look for good side of this that our troops welcome home out of necessity. Well I'd like to see them. Come home. I'm not sure that that's going to happen. They'll probably just pause things. They've they're probably won't pause the war in Afghanistan but to your point about the monetary implications of this. You know we're about to see the mother of all bailouts. You'RE GONNA see Congressman competing with other congressman to brag about how much money they're willing to spend on this and we. We passed an eight billion dollar package. That ashamed to tell you. I voted for but I felt we needed to do something. And then they came back and they wanted a fifty billion dollar package to pay people to stay home and not work. Okay which the which you're GONNA put the small businesses out of business if they can't get workers but the third installment of this is that eight hundred fifty billion it'd probably be over trillion by the time it passes and what's GonNa Happen is GonNa be the last installment if we all subscribe to this idea that nobody needs to work that the best way to cure this viruses to stay home and do nothing and that the government will pay you for it. Our economy is twenty over twenty trillion dollars. Are you going to? How Are you going to borrow twenty trillion dollars? Let's say there's a a twenty five percent Diminishment of the economy. That's five trillion dollars. The government's GONNA inject. This may finally be the thing that breaks the back of of the dollar of our economic underpinnings. It could. It could get to that you know the the one thing. They have to consider the fact that as they print more money and spend it and the feds involved is that the faster they printed or think they can well if we do five ten fifteen twenty. That'll do it but this money goes out and as it certainly. It goes down in value so the reading no wealth at all. It's a diminishing return on the money so it's a can't possibly work except for the short term but the short term is coming to an end. I think that's also true with fewer people. Working you're going to have more dollars chasing fewer products. And so I think you could see some big inflation here when we start paying people to stay home and while we're simultaneously printing money. I had a reporter asked me just yesterday. Well we're looking at economic indicators. Do you think the fundamentals of our economy are sound and say Whoa. Whoa WHOA WHOA. I don't know what economic indicators you're looking at the fundamentals of our economy is when somebody wakes up and goes to work and make something. That is absolutely fundamental. Part of our economy are provides a service and those fundamentals are broken at the most basic level. That's My big concern right. You know what's interesting about the This corona virus is that you know there is all estimations are very small percentage of society. We know this from Italy. We know the SMOOT we've seen in China among those who've died a very very very narrow small layer of society that is particularly susceptible. I think the majority of people in Italy were eighty plus years old with at least two pre existing life threatening conditions. According to a study that I looked at I think it was similar in China. Does it make sense to lock down the ninety eight percent of us who are not particularly susceptible to this and in the name of saving supposedly these two percent and in in in the course of things completely ruining the economy as has as you've said they're well on their way doing? I mean there has to be some crazy proposals. You're hearing in Washington. Maybe you can enlighten us to some of those. But this seems like one of the craziest. Look you know one thing that would solve. This is if you would let the free market work on this problem..

"Thomas Massie represents Kentucky's fourth congressional district that stretches all across northern Kentucky two hundred and eighty miles of the Ohio River he is now he's a smart guy I mean he's no Glenn and still but he did go to M. I. T. he's on three different committees the house committee for transportation infrastructure the committee on oversight and government reform I'd love for you and the committee on science space and technology he is he's also the guy who last night took me down to the skiff and took a picture of me at the door of the skiff wouldn't let me in for some reason wouldn't let me in but we were down where that those all the secret meetings went on with the with the whistle blower welcome Thomas how are you yes you bet first of all let's start with the the well we're we're halfway through a historic twenty four hours yeah we got the state of the union last night which was just outrageously good in my opinion and then in fact what four o'clock this afternoon the Senate's going to vote to acquit yeah this is it it's amazing slice of history this twenty four hour window yeah and to be their last night was just amazing on the floor the house I started out by shaking the president's hand as he came in yeah and thanking him for the work that he's done and then boy when he started into that speech I think there's Democrats had super glue on their on their seats because they refused to stand up for the I mean just if he had said apple pie or baseball or any meaning that time you could have come out and said I'd like socialism and they would if they would not have clapped and they would not have gotten up that's right I mean in no matter what he said even it was stuck they've always been for the I mean he would he would he talk about many things that they have been for and they couldn't applaud they could applaud at at the lowest unemployment rate the love the highest employment rate for African Americans ever the highest employment rate for Hispanics and Asians women nothing nothing nothing it would it was incredible he got a few of them to clap for criminal justice reform because he co sponsored the bill but even people that voted for that bill wouldn't get up and clap or even acknowledge that the president did something good by signing the bill let me ask you this last year I was your guest the state of the union and I felt it was remember that the president was kind of he was almost squirrely at a couple of times he go come on you can clap for that remember yeah I would look right to write I have to go come on and it was still a little good natured right last night I felt from them hatred I mean I that room was full day hate him seething see needing a treasured and you know I shook the president's hand when he came in to do so I had to sit on the aisle yeah so I was just a few feet from those Democrats who would not stand up for the president for anything for anything good about America and I would look over at the end where a kid looking over and touch on some of them and just look at him in the eyes and and think what is going to your head right now white what is it that you hate about this man so much that you're gonna be so spiteful and hate our country me when he just talked in generalities about the country and how we need to put Americans first they wouldn't stand up not a single one of them could I see clapping when he said we need to put America and Americans first right I mean in the there were things last night that he said I thought this was a wildly uniting speech because everything's in there that pissed me off you know when he was not me too yeah high speed internet for everybody in like that's the government's job and that's one of the things that they were demanding before was high speed internet high speed internet for everybody well good I'm I'm for that let's have companies do that not the United States government and they are you know because how long did we spend on the stupid internet thing a yes Roman other yeah what was the the lump Lumbee tribe yeah the lobby try rated at one clip they didn't have any they didn't have any high speed internet no bomb I wanted a high speed internet for everybody here he is proposing it and they won't stand up they won't even clap he didn't extend an olive branch he extended an olive tree he did had all of orchard he day and they didn't take any of the family leave act I mean holy cow by the way I didn't vote for the family are you back in the I know that and he's proposing to extend to extend it yeah yeah a private company right right and to me that was he was trying to build a bridge to the yeah was it was a that was a bridge a little far yet but it will all the stuff you talk about the unions right he talked about the union's last night and of course the the new nafta agreement was a gift to the unions nothing nothing crickets on on their side and I mean that's just incredible because some of those folks have cosponsored those bills render them voted for those bills right but they just hate him so much this is so how are we going to get through the next four and a half years you know he's got a spanking at the ballot box again yeah for them to learn that he's in line with American Americans and they're not I mean this was basically laying the framework for the twenty twenty election board for the stark contrast that what was in about an election but you could see the stark contrast between what president trump stands for and what the Democrats stand for and when he put he laid out a vision for America and you know the state the state of the unions are speeches are supposed to be and and often times are hopeful and he did that at the end I mean he was talking about that was the best speech that's the best speech he's given last year I thought it was the best speech he's given he's good at this which still are talking about it never would have expected him to be good at a state of the union address because he's just not a great reader is not great speech giver and he's good off the cuff in his own way expected rallies expected one liners that debates I don't expect these were his date of the union he's good I think yeah this was a re defining of the state of the union address I think this one I mean when you know there were so many the thing is boring it's not every year let's be honest but the chrysalis was was anything but boring is actually if you were in the room I don't know how this how to translate not in the room still could you feel the hatred not as much as you're saying I mean they certainly GB here jeers occasionally all they were they were non stop yeah they were non stop you can't hear what's really going down on the floor I know you can't hear it you can't see it it was non stop they got to a point towards the end I don't know if you notices scholars but you are close enough to it they got to a point to where the one one woman actually put her head in her hands and just laid down in her own lap just like I ate I can't do it anymore much two or three of them walk out yeah three of them I saw yeah and literally at times he had to speak over them yet because they were jeering so loudly now if you are watching it on TV the sound was being picked up by his microphone so you wouldn't have gotten the entire ambiance of the room right which at times was was jeers from the Democrats right he just instead of acknowledging them or us plow he threw out through all that it is he he did I mean that was an expert last night in expert performance at just plowing through and I wondered if you heard that because many many times he was being jeered by them and he just raised his voice and he just didn't stop yeah I know that's what we're going to and that was smart because it was not detectable largely I wish it was yeah I really I really wish people could see the state of the union the way I've seen at the last two years because you it's a totally different world can I admit to breaking with decorum at one point in yes beach in the beginning we started chanting we start a little chant where I was four more years yeah yeah that came out I heard did you hear that yeah yeah okay well I participated yeah it was and you know it's funny is every time the the Republicans really responded with a year yeah was when he was covering for them that's right it it will end it I mean can I it back yes thank you out of the gallery he didn't drag me out of the gallery but they must have but there was a couple of times to where I didn't necessarily even fully agree with you know all the the at it I agreed with it but I wasn't like year but because they jeered when people started to collapse I was first on my feet going year yeah I know and the guy he's the X. three is of this guy from Oklahoma and the other one was care or the other one was from and a guy from North Dakota in front and they were they were mad your guys yeah in the eighties they were a lift in the roof off with the group that I sat with we resolved every time that we heard the Democrats jeering at him while he was trying to speak that when he was done speaking that we would clap twice as loudly you heard it yeah I heard it you heard that at least in the room we we're going to continue our conversation because there was there were a couple of really touching things I watched Ilan Omar and Rasheeda to leave closely and their statement when they walked out we just couldn't take it anymore wait until I share what I witnessed because I watch them like a hawk as I watch them last year you can learn an awful lot from just watching those two and wait until I tell you the real story about their dramatic walkout where they just couldn't take it anymore coming up in just a second also Chris Stewart is going to be joining us we have Israel.

"thomas massie" Discussed on Ron Paul Liberty Report

"Hello everybody and thank you for tuning into Liberty Report with me today is Daniel McCallum our co host Daniel. Good to see you this morning this morning. Dr Paul Good. It's a good day today because we have a special guest and think need about our guests. Thomas Massie he's well known for being you know real believer Iran Liberty. But he's also believe in being a little bit Abate yes sometimes. People get too downbeat over because it deserves to be down. Be But Thomas. Welcome to our program today. Hey thank you ron. Thanks for having me on wonderful I wanNA start off with You know our history. Of course I knew you you before you were elected to Congress and we served together for two months for seven weeks so excited to sit next to try to. There's some liberty to do it on my own. Yeah but you know. There's there's one thing that I want to caution you about you know before you came. It didn't happen happen because that was such a short time when both the people would come up to me. And say Ron. You are the best congressman there is and I'd always say well you have to consider the competition. So that's why I'm GonNa tell you. You are the best congressman but you have to think what about my competition right. They say when you get elected to Congress you pinch yourself and wonder how you got there and after a couple months and you meet your colleagues you start wondering how they got there. Well I'll tell you one thing that you really really. We wonder if he ever when you become a candidate for president you go and you run into a six eight ten fifteen candidate or look at the Democratic Foreign Group right now and you say and you get to know a little bit when you're on debates with have been talked to him the light. What are these people are going to be pressing the United States? I used to think that there's no way individual like me or somebody else could be present but when I looked at them boy what a difference people shouldn't be reassured they know some of them Personally but yeah. That's a that's a good argument for smaller rest intrusive government because these folks are angels. They're not savant. There's nothing remarkable about them. They have the same witnesses that everybody else has. And that's why we shouldn't let them run our lives but you know what it does. It invites the enthusiasm for or something you deal with an idea with and that is messy. Because you're still on the road and you helped so many people. You've helped us out and conferences so that that is where the real issue is changing people's attitudes and minds you know it isn't those members of Congress that we run into it's It's the people in the universities. Universities that people in the media and all the people who've learned economics badly on the people for academic reasons and propaganda reasons endorsed type of foreign foreign policy and of course the monetary policy. So the action is. I've always thought the action is outside of the politicians. But I used that as a forum. And you do that so well well too because people know your beliefs and And they know that you have conviction in which direction you WanNa go and obviously that what is clearly for less government. Yeah and you know. Even though the whole thing is rigged at times they won't yield you even thirty seconds to join the the debate sometimes there is a democratic feature of the House of Representatives whereby anybody can go to the floor of the House for one minute and speak at new. ooh right and most of these other congressmen used that one minute to congratulate sports team or something back in the district. And that's fine but I like to use those one minutes to the advocate for saying foreign policy or less intervention for smaller government and those sorts of things. But at least we can still go to the floor As members of Congress Chris and give a speech and get that out there and be the voice that some people don't hear these presidential debates don't hear from their own congressman right Daniel. Now those one minutes great Mr Massey. There there's something for the permanent record as they say I'm tempted. I was thinking about. You know we're so happy to have you on the show all the things we could talk about and I hate to start with something. That's neither political nor dealing with policy. But I can't resist one of my favorite documentaries of all time. Time is the one that Matt Kimmy did about you in the off the grid with Thomas Massie and I've recommended it. It's so many. Dozens of people have watched it probably twenty times. I I suggest half hour you'll spend I think but I can't resist asking you now a couple of years on after the film's been made you refer to the House that you've built by hand literally you know minding your own rocks as the Shire and I was just going to ask you how things are at the Shire these days a couple years after Matt's documentary this showers running time today. I just came from my house off the grid after Dr Four Miles to get on the grid and join you in the studio but The Sun was a shining yesterday. So we're excited about that. We're using our would gasify boiler basically takes word turns into a gas and then burns it in a very clean process. That's heating our house Since we made the documentary of made some upgrades for instance. I added some solar panels that are vertical. So that when it snows here in Kentucky you don't get much of that in Texas but when it snows in Kentucky the snow doesn't accumulate on those new panels and I- upgraded our battery. I had this Brunch of clunking. Clunky lead acid batteries in my basement. Instead I I've now found a battery from a wreck model as Tesla I took it apart and rewired it for forty eight volts reprogrammed it and it's running our house today. That's amazing wonderful. The walk and talking to. Yeah well I have I have I have a question on what's going on in in public right now and we'd like to keep up with all the events and the biggest event right now is corona virus and it's it's significant because there's a lot of strong feelings in both directions you know it's the end of the world in the other is a a bad cold and by now. You probably have been asked about that. Have you been asked about the corona virus and what one must do and whether or not there should be corn warranties or has the subject come up with any of your media well It's not come up within my media. I think people are trying to gauge H.. How seriously to take it you know? We had the abol a scare in the swine flu and the bird flu and all these other Plagues that we're going to decimate somme the population CERTA speak I think it's I think it's good to be cautious I think also at the same time. You can have more more casualties from overreacting so I'm paying close attention to the reports that that were getting and You know we need to understand how the virus spreads before we start trying to figure out how to keep it from spreading and It's a new virus in it behaves new away and I think that's what's bothering people the most well. I think what I sense from. Your statement is a medical statement. I do no harm in politically officer. You're the doctor. The politicians don't follow much. I do know they wouldn't have anything to do. You know that. Okay Daniel actually. The political equivalent of that is never let a good crisis go to waste. Washington is probably say. But you know Mr Mass. You've I've been very vocal about this piecemeal business and I've seen a couple of great floor speeches and I've seen some great statements. In fact I think one of the best tweets I've ever seen which captures the whole thing. Just a couple of words. If withholding foreign aid is an impeachable offense. Why did Joe Biden threatened to do it? You know so simple. Why is no talking about Brag about your brag about? What's your take on these are these are? That's just a simple question that I get from my constituents and after the tenth when asked asked me that I decided you know I should tweet that the other thing. They asked me as if they're accused the president of using his official capacity to harm one of his opponents in the next selection. Why are these Democratic senators who are running for president using their you know official capacity to damage his reputation? I do have to You know Congratulate Tulsi Gabbard for at least voting present and not voting. Yes or no on the peach Melba jam when it was in the house because she she is running for president and I think it really is hypocritical for them to to try to damage the president by the way. Even Nancy Pelosi said. This should be bipartisan. But the only thing. That's bipartisan about. This impeachment is the opposition to it Every Republican and some Democrats voted voted against the impeachment in the house. And I think you're gonNA see the same thing in the Senate. It'll be great when we get this behind us but you know I was on the oversight committee so I was down in the scare With Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows when Adam Schiff was having what we call the witness tryouts he would bring them in there and if they performed in a way right damaged the president he would call them above ground. You know Outside of this gift for the other hearings but while we're sitting down there I realized that the Liberals Bulls had lost their momentum. It turns out things like universal background checks and red flag. Laws are gun control. That they were pushing rushing. I was thankful that they've lost their momentum on that so if there's one small silver lining in this whole impeachment sham. It's it's what I think. Nancy Pelosi knew in her heart. Art Number One It stopped their momentum in their agenda. That number two. It's going to hurt him at the ballot box. Because American people see through it. You Know Kentucky. He is a state that Sometimes Statewide Democrats For various reasons. And it's a little more complicated than just saying Republican Democrat but but How the higher this Kentucky come down now on impeachment if if somebody like you to use suffer or do you benefit by taking your position impeachment? My constituents have tuned out to out a long time ago. Most of them turned off the TV on impeachment. When the president released the call transcript of his call all with the president of Ukraine? CEO Here in Kentucky Sobat like the Mueller Report. It's a big nothing burger for the most part of of course I. There are some Democrats who are excited by impeachment and the prospect of overturning. The last election that even most of the Democrats that's and nearly all of the Republicans in Kentucky are against impeachment. What was speaking of politics? Let's turn a little bit to politics politics. If you don't mind we were a little surprised to see that you picked up a Republican challenger and I don't know how much if any you WanNa talk about it but it is. It is kind of interesting. Whoa what happened? What's going on down there when you know? I've been blessed to go eight years without a serious primary Challenger Since I won my first election but that hasn't kept the establishment from trying to recruit somebody and every year. They've nearly recruited somebody but the person backs out on them in the last second will this year they got somebody to actually put his name on the ballot and ironically he started out by his campaign. Started out the by saying that I wasn't supporting the President Enough You know I'm going to be a delegate most likely for for the president in the upcoming reelection I was a delegate at the RNC for him in the last election. I'm on I'm a CO chair of his reelecting Kentucky so I found it somewhat ironic but there is a website run by. ABC News called fivethirtyeight that tries to gauge. Based on your votes folks whether you're for the president or against the president and they give you some kind of score and I went and looked at that and every omnibus bill every debt limit. And every CR. You're if you didn't vote for them. They said you were against the president because he ultimately signed it every time you send arms to Saudi Arabia if you vote against is that if you voted against the feis accord I found seventeen votes where they said I wasn't with the president because I wouldn't vote reauthorized the court that spied on him because I wouldn't vote to send arms to Saudi Arabia and because I wouldn't vote for all of this All the debt limits and the horrible omnibus he was basically strong armed into signing..

House approves war powers resolution to restrict Trump on Iran

"Called the Iran war powers resolution so you had eight Democrats voted against below sea but yet three Republicans Matt Gage Frances Rooney Thomas Massie all voting all cross the three of them crossing party lines to vote for hello she used dean and I don't get it I just don't get it Matt Gage was on last night I mean here's here's cut a lead here areas on the floor of the house cut number twelve from C. span and there isn't a more solidly trump supporting American congressmen the mac gates and yet here he was explaining why he is siding with Nancy Pelosi and voting against president trump in voting for this non binding war powers resolution I take a backseat to no member of this body when it comes to defending the president this resolution offers no criticism of the president no critique doesn't criticize the president's attack on Seoul Monty matter fact this resolution doesn't even say soul Montes name it yeah it does articulate our very robust basis for self defense at times even preemptory self defense to defend our troops and it also articulates are non del double duty as members of the United States Congress to speak to matters of war and peace I represent more troops than any other member of this body I buried one of them earlier today at Arlington and that sergeant died a patriot and a hero if the members of our armed services have the courage to go and fight and die in these wars as Congress we ought to have the courage to vote for or against them and I think it's ludicrous to suggest that we are impairing the troops from doing their job by not doing our job articulated in the constitution to speak to these matters of war and peace I support the president killing soul money was the right decision but engaging in another forever war in the Middle East would be the wrong decision and that's why I'm voting for this resolution I yield back gradually since congressman gates you're voting with Nancy Pelosi you're voting for the resolution that was sponsored by Alyssa slot can the Democrat from Michigan I I I I I'm still baffled by his his defense that well doesn't criticize press of course you criticize that's the whole point of it is to criticize the president injury and to to to handcuff him to rein him in it literally is meant to limit president trump's ability to deal with Iran as he

"thomas massie" Discussed on News Radio 1190 KEX

"Thomas Massie, one of the great congressman from the great state of Kentucky. Welcome to the program, sir. Thanks for fitting me in this morning, Glenn. You bet. I appreciate it you and I spoke after after I was off air yesterday. And we spoke for a few minutes about what I think is a an embarrassment and a possible tragedy on the way to Covington Kentucky, they are preparing for crazy people doing crazy things. And and I think these kids are heroes. I really think that they demonstrated a Christ like attitude and the attitude of Martin Luther King, and everyone is afraid to come out and say anything, oh, I I agree with you. When everybody was still condemning them, I came out to commend them because they've been coming to Washington DC on their own dime for thirty years. And for the six years that I've been in congress. They've always been welcome at my office. I've done their school. Cheers with them on the steps of the capitol. These are the most fine upstanding students you'll ever meet. And so when I saw that first snippet of video that came out and went viral. I said something doesn't add up here. This can't be the whole story because I know these kids, I know their parents, I know the alumni from this school, this these are the kind of kids that do the right thing not because they're afraid of getting punished, but because they're afraid they'll let down their families or their let down their mentors. And so that by the way, hang on just a second. I want you to know. That's a quote, that's not something. He's just saying that's a quote from one of the former students, we don't we? We don't want to let down our mentors. That's that. Is exactly what you want with kids. That's right. That's what they told me. That's what they told me one of the kids that went there. Oh. I am, you know, this is almost like a psychology experiment. I think everybody needs to step back because a lot of conservatives fell for this first video because we were told here's what you're going to see. And then when you watch it you say, yeah, I guess that's what I am seeing. But without the context of everything else, you're getting duped. And that's what happened to a lot of people. So go ahead. No, no, go ahead. Well, the tragedy of this is is the people who jumped to conclusion in the first twelve hours or the first eight hours who who said something to save their own skin. Now instead of come walking it back. They're saying well now, I need a third party investigation to sort all this out. And we'll we'll get a report on this. They're not they're not exonerating or walking back what they did at this point. So can you help me out? Have you talked to anybody at the school? I know I talked to a Robby George yesterday who was will guy who jumped on the bandwagon on Friday. He's he's very big in the Catholic church. He's I think he's a chair of ethics. Can you help me out on that at Princeton University, and I called him? And he said, Glenn how can I help? He said, I feel so horrible on Friday. I tweeted something that this has to stop. And he said, and then it wasn't until Sunday that I actually saw that. There was extra video, and I did my homework, and he said, I feel horrible. I tweeted immed-. A retraction he said. But nobody's nobody's willing to step up and protect these kids. And I said it's worse than that. The parents haven't heard word one from the school in a hey, we've got your back. The arts diocese is completely silent on this. And they're afraid of funding. They're afraid if they support the kids the liberals will go away and stop the funding. If they if they don't support the kids the conservatives will go away and they'll lose their funding. I mean, this is horrible. I've talked to the alumni, and parents who have reached out to meet and they wanted somebody to speak up for their kids. That's why I came out Sunday supporting these kids with the strongest statement is I could make and I think, you know, hopefully that will give other people cover if there's a congressman out there saying these are good kids, you gotta support them. And by the way, Knicks fan man that kid deserves a mess. Title that kid you and I talked about him for five minutes on the phone yesterday. I would be proud if that kid was my son. There's a lot of times, you know, kids stand up, and they do things and you're like, you put your hand up to your face, and you kind of look through your fingers, and you're like, oh, God, what is my son or daughter going to do or say and this kid was amazing, especially if you watch all of the video he stopped others from getting out of hand. It was amazing. What he what he did? That's right media tried to say he was smirking. But if you if you read a statement, and I completely believe him he was trying to smile so that the other students wouldn't think that he was being intimidated or felt threatened? He was trying to de-escalate it with a smile, and like you said what's off camera in the in the video that went viral. But from another angle with another microphone, you can hear another native American protests. Who is telling one of Nick's classmates? Go back to Europe you stole this land. And Nick turns and with China language by motioning without even saying anything convinces his friend not to reciprocate not to escalate and while he's still got to Germany fake. That is just amazing when you see that. So we have. So, you know, and please if you're listening Facebook, your friends, call your friends, tell everybody, you know, we have a detailed my staff went through all of the video yesterday, and we put together what's in the business called a tick tock, which means what happened minute by minute. We have the video prior to the kids even arriving, and we have watched it now from several different points of view. There was somebody chanting build the wall build the wall. We have the video, but you will not believe who it was. And we're going to do that next hour. We're with Thomas Massie congressman from Kentucky. This is the this is his area. He knows these people in Covington Thomas, what can the average person do to support these kids? Well. I think what needs to happen right now is the principal of the school the diocese. They need to turn this around. They need to act quickly because you know, you need to give people the benefit of the doubt win their children. You definitely need to give them the benefit of the doubt support them support them on social media. I think we're turning this thing around. I really do. The irony is that this was a social media mob that came after Nick and he's classmates, but the irony here is that social media can turn this thing back around because the left leaning media has has really jumped the shark on this one I've got to give credit to to some of the folks at CNN uncharacteristically. They've walked it back a little bit. In that think that's because of the pressure. Even even Democrats look at this and say that could be my kid who's getting docks that could be my house where they're coming to protest. It's it's one thing. Everybody knows Twitter is a dumpster fire, but people are taking that fire in that dumpster and bringing it into Covington. I mean, they they threatened to school so much that the prosecutor in northern Kentucky had to come out and say, look, we're going to prosecute these crimes. This is a crime to threaten at school, and you will be prosecuted. So I think just keep the pressure up keep supporting these kids on on social media, and for your friends who haven't seen the full link video, your your what do you call it tick talk, then it's going to be so important. That's what they need to see. Because not everybody's going to be able to sit through five different video watch four hours of video. So if you put that together that is perfect. I will share that on my Facebook. So everybody can know what really happened. Okay. So can you help me with? What happens to what was his name Wheeler? Walker? I think he's a guy who's this. You know, she's a country artists or he actually makes fun of country music by claiming country artists, and he is he was on Twitter yesterday saying I will give you autographed copies of my work on vinyl. If you beat this kid up find him beat him up and make a video of it. And give it to me. I will I'll give you a prize Twitter hasn't suspended his account. Apparently. That's not a hate crime. Is anything going to be done for the against the people who are issuing these kinds of threats well, their civil and criminal liability. I think he's crossed over into criminal. That sounds like terroristic threatening to me. I don't know. I'll ask the prosecutor who issued a stern warning very early this weekend to these instigators, but is still going on. That's why I ask because I you know, you just said that he was doing that. But it's still going on and Twitter doesn't seem to have a problem with it. That is the problem with social media. And that's how the left forms a mob is when they threaten violence is freedom of speech. And when the right when somebody conservative says something strongly-worded, not even violent than that their account gets shut down. I know. If you can't see that buys, you don't have your eyes open or you're not on social media. But I think they've really jumped the shark on this. And I hope this is a lesson to everybody. It's also got to be a lesson to moderates and conservatives to wait twenty four hours, you it's okay to get fact incomplete facts out there, but it's wrong to form a conclusion on incomplete facts talking to Representative Thomas Massie, you have thirty seconds to spend on an unrelated topic here on the shutdown. You had a compelling reasoning on your vote I felt about. I think you were one of seven in the house that voted against the pay back pay for government employees and the details were really the problem here. Can you explain that? But real quick. Yeah. So we took a vote in congress. I was walking to the four ready to go vote for this. Okay. Even though they introduced at the same day, we're going to vote on it. And he said he wouldn't do that. And I was ready to vote for it. We voted for things like this in the path. Then I discovered the Bill actually says for every shutdown forever. From now on basically, we are going to pay everybody. Whether they worked or not what you're doing is you're taking the entire federal payroll and taking it from discretionary spending and put it into the mandatory spending. Now three quarters of our government is mandatory. And that's the problem. That's why our is going bankrupt because it's all on autopilot. But to take the entire federal payroll and put it on autopilot forever. That is so dangerous. Here's the other thing that it doesn't even pay the workers at TSA her still working today. I'm going through at the airport. And by the way, we'll go through. They tell me to keep it up. They support me. But when I go through today, they're not going to get paid this Bill didn't fix that problem. But this Bill encourages more shut. Downs in the future. Because now politicians have political cover. That's amazing. No-one no-one covered that point of view. I thank you for that vote. That was an important one. Thanks Thomas Massie, really one of the good guys that we can trust in congress Thomas Massie. You can follow him at Massey dot house dot gov or Representative Thomas Massie. Thank you so much. Appreciate it. Thanks for getting the truth out there Glenn. I'm I'm going to share that tick tock on all of my social media channels. Do thank you so much. I appreciate.

"Trump appointed head of the World Food Program. The war in Yemen is currently threatening starvation of fourteen million people. Tens of thousands of Yemenis are already dead. You've seen the images like these children who are starving to death before very is. It is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world right now. And right now you and I in every American is facilitating this horror. Our government is supporting the Saudi war in Yemen. The Bartman the killing and the starvation of children because why exactly what is the argument in favor of doing what we're doing? We haven't heard that argument in the house of representatives. In fact, you won't be hearing an argument for that in the house of representatives. And that's because speaker Ryan today was to cowardly to have an actual debate. And vote on this matter to. Cowardly to let lawmakers stand up in the well, the house and say, yes, I think we should keep starving these children because it's so important that we support the same government that just butchered journalist, Jamal kashogi. Now. Of course, they're probably aren't too many lawmakers willing to stand up and say that since there is no domestic political constituency to continue starving children of Yemen. So instead, the cowardly but perfectly in character action. Speaker Paul Ryan on his way out the door was to use the rules committee to stick a rule attach it to the farm Bill a rule to strip out any debate. And consideration of the War Powers resolution, which would have given lawmakers the opportunity to call the end of the US support of the Saudi Saudi-born Yemen that rule passed now early Jewish six to three with eighteen Republicans voting against the bogus rule. Republican Thomas Massie of Kentucky calling speaker Ryan tactic despicable five Democrats provided the majority voting for the. Rule again a rule to prevent debate on US support of Saudi Arabia's warring Yemen here, the five Democrats who helped attached this monstrous rule to farm Bill. They apparently think it's all right to use the farm Bill to help continue starving. The Chiltern of Yemen. And you have to ask again, why why do they think that we don't know since they wouldn't actually debate? It are their constituents who get up in the town halls of these five Democrats say what I need from. You congressman is to continue bombing and starving children of Yemen into death and submission, highly doubt, it so why ask again, are we doing this in the Senate least there's a real debate going on about this and are real effort to vote against the US. Support the Saudi war in Yemen. We're gonna talk to someone who's led that fight. Senator. Chris Murphy joins me next. Saudi Arabia can push us around like they have over. The course of the last several years in particular, the last several months, then it sends a signal lots of other countries that they can do the same thing the big and murder US residents and suffer almost no consequences. They can bomb civilians with our munitions and suffer. No consequences were the major partner in this relationship. And it's time that we start acting like it. And if this ministration isn't going to act like then this congress has to act like it Senate right now is on track to pass a historic resolution that would not only end the US military involvement and Saudi Arabia is ongoing Warren Yemen, but also serve as an unprecedented rebuke to both current Saudi regime, and the Trump administration Senator Chris Murphy, democrat from Connecticut and one of the original co sponsors of the resolution told me earlier tonight, just what's at stake. So we got sixty votes to proceed to debate that's pretty significant number. That's a lot of Republicans. And now, we'll have a handful of amendments. And we'll have a final vote sometime tomorrow that vote likely will be overwhelming bipartisan as well. This'll be the first time since the adoption of the War Powers Act of nineteen Seventy-three. The congress has voted to pull us out of hostilities abroad.
