Darren Beattie Shares His Thoughts on the RESTRICT Act
"Joining us is Darren Beatty. He runs one of the most important websites revolver news. You guys should visit it every day. I certainly do Darren. Welcome back to the program. Darren, I want to talk about Israel. You have a very unique take on that. But first, I just want to get your thoughts on this restrict act that we've been talking about that more Republicans than Democrats are sponsoring. And I just want to remind our audience what Republicans are sponsoring this. John boozman from Arkansas, my crepo from Idaho, Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, Tom tillis from North Carolina chuck grassley from Iowa, Kevin Kramer from North Dakota. Shelley Moore capito from West Virginia, Mitt Romney from Utah. Susan Collins from Maine, Dan Sullivan from Alaska, Jerry Moran from Kansas, Deb Fischer from Nebraska and John thune from South Dakota. Darren, your thoughts on the restrict act. Well, you have a bill that supported by Lindsey Graham, Tom tillis and Mitt Romney. You know you're in for a beauty. The restrict act, what can we say about it? Well, first thing to know is that it's a Trojan horse type Bill. What it's being packaged as is some kind of way to counteract the nefarious foreign communist infused influence of TikTok, which is a natural cell. Everybody can get behind that. But what it actually is, is a Trojan horse. And amounts effectively, I think the best description of it that I've heard is the Patriot Act for the Internet. Even though the marketing is specifically tailored to TikTok, something that we all love to hate, the actual substance of the bill is very vague and it is no way limited to TikTok. It's vaguely constrained to technologies associated with quote unquote foreign adversaries.

The top stories we're following for you today, the U.S. Senate has voted 81 to 14 to block D.C.'s new criminal code. Those in favor of smacking down the law argued that lighter penalties can't stand at a time of rising crime. WTO's Mitchell Miller has more from Capitol Hill. Republicans, including North Carolina senator Tom tillis, are critical of the new criminal code, pointing out that penalties would be lighter for carjacking, even though it happens to people every day. The D.C. said council was blind to crime happening right in front of them right outside their front door. But Maryland democratic senator Chris van hollen, a supporter of home rule, pointed out that the code also includes increasing penalties for some crimes. Federal assault on a police officer. They raised it from the current max ten to 14 years. Still, dozens of other Democrats joined Republicans in voting for the disapproval resolution, and President Biden has said he won't stand in its way with a veto. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller WTO.

"New criminal code, supporters of the measure argue that lighter penalties can not stand in a time of rising crime. Let's go to WTO peace Mitchell Miller today on the hill. Republicans like North Carolina senator Tom tillis are critical of the new criminal code, pointing out that penalties would be lighter for carjacking, even though it happens to people every day. The D.C. said council was blind to crime happening right in front of them right outside their front door. D.C. mayor muriel Bowser doesn't agree with some of the lighter penalties, but she also doesn't think Congress should be stepping in on a local issue. I am not happy that the Congress is intervening in our laws. The disapproval resolution is expected to get bipartisan support, including from Virginia democratic senators, Mark Warner, and Tim kaine. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO news. New tonight, the 6 year old boy who shot his first grade teacher at a school in Newport News Virginia will not be held criminally responsible. The city prosecutor tells NBC News that while he won't seek charges against the student, he hasn't decided whether any adults involved in the case will be charged. The gun that the boy brought to school belonged to his mother, the shooting on January 6th that richneck elementary school has led to a potential lawsuit expected to be filed on behalf of the teacher Abigail's Warner. It's also led to the school's superintendent and an assistant principal being kicked out, plus the installation of metal detectors. The Justice Department is out with a scathing report on police conduct in Louisville following the deadly shooting of Breonna Taylor back in 2020, attorney general Merrick Garland says the investigation found Louisville police have engaged in a pattern of violating constitutional rights and unlawfully discriminating against black people among other things. The report finds that LMPD uses excessive force, conducts searches based on invalid warrants, unlawfully executes warrants without knocking and announcing, unlawfully stops, searches, detains, and arrests, Taylor was shot and killed during a botched police rate of her apartment, the four current and former officers involved in that rate have been charged with federal civil rights at violations, and the Justice Department says it's going to review Memphis police department policies on use of force, deescalation policies, and its specialized units. The review was requested by the city's mayor and police chief following the deadly police involved beating of Tyree Nichols earlier this year. The DoJ is also conducting a civil rights investigation into Nichols's death. It's 6 34 leaders in Maryland have been irate since last fall when the feds announced a different selection process for the new FBI headquarters. Previously they said the government scoring system to find the right spot is biased toward Virginia. So is that still the case? Marilyn says it wins on all the merits, but emphasized cost and equity over everything else with senator Chris van hollen arguing if Springfield is chosen, it will cost over a $1 billion more to the federal taxpayer. We are talking about a legacy defining choice. Maryland governor westmore and prince George's county executive Angela also Brooks also repeatedly brought up equity concerns the president has promised to address in multiple executive orders. We just right now ask that it be enforced. For now, the scoring puts greater weight on proximity to Quantico than both cost and equity combined, but the governor says they were told GSA and the FBI would go back and be able to reevaluate everything at GSA headquarters and we as team Maryland planned to hold them to that. John dome in WTO P news. Virginia leaders are expected to make their final pitch to the GSA tomorrow morning. Also happening tomorrow, President Biden is expected to unveil his budget proposal in Philadelphia. The White House says the president will lay out a plan to strengthen entitlement programs and lower annual deficits by nearly $3 trillion over the next ten years. We see this as a value statement on what the president sees in the future of this country. Press secretary karine Jean Pierre says key to mister Biden's proposal is an increase in taxes on those making more than $400,000 a year. That is something that Americans believe in. House Republicans who have yet to formally offer their proposals are sure to balk at mister Biden's. Stephen portnoy, CBS News, Washington. And the president is expected to include a salary raise for federal employees in his budget plan, The Washington Post reports there's a proposed 5.2% pay raise for government workers. Now, if it's approved by Congress, it would be the largest pay increase since the 1980s, but it would still fall short of the 8.7% increase that federal employee unions have been pushing for.

"Chairman Rupert Murdoch says the 2020 presidential election was not stolen. That's according to court filings released today as part of dominion voting systems defamation lawsuit against Fox News. Dominion says its business was harmed by the network's frequent broadcasting of false claims from Trump's lawyers who said that dominion tampered with votes in the 2020 election. He also said under oath that he thought Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham went too far in his words. In backing, Donald Trump's false election claims. The voting machine company is suing Fox for $1.6 billion. We're going to stay with Fox here as some GOP lawmakers tonight are pushing back against Tucker Carlson's depiction of the deadly capital riot using some 41,000 hours of security footage handed him by the house's top Republican. Carlson's Fox News show did air scenes of hand to hand combat, but he sought to depict some of the capital invaders, not as insurrectionists, but sightseers, a narrative favorable to Donald Trump. The ex-president thanked him for irrefutable evidence that rioters have been wrongly accused, but from Senate GOP chief Mitch McConnell. It was a mistake in my view to top deputy John thune. It was attack on the capital. And North Carolina's Tom tillis, who says Carlson's version is BS. I was here still some Republicans are trying to retell the history of January 6th after a Democrat led house panels findings that Trump's backer stormed the capitol as part of his bid to overturn a 2020 election loss. Sagar Meghani, Washington. Virginia democratic senator Mark Warner and South Dakota Republican senator John thune are introducing bipartisan legislation to address the threats posed by technology from foreign adversaries. That includes the very popular TikTok app, the Senate bill follows a similar bill introduced last week in the house. The ACLU has already spoken out against the House bill, saying it violates both the First Amendment and a 1988 law known as the burman amendment that protects the right to receive information regardless of its country of origin. So think of people streaming their experiences amidst the protests in Iran, COVID lockdowns in China, the war on Ukraine. People use TikTok to create content and share information that increases news awareness that increases civic engagement. The Biden administration supports the Senate bill and is urging Congress to pass it. Nicole di Antonio CBS News, Washington. To your financial future first, the head of the Federal Reserve tells Congress interest rates could go higher than originally planned since the economy isn't cooling and inflation is persisting. WTO's Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill. Fed chairman Jerome Powell testifying before the Senate banking committee says economic growth isn't slowing down enough to help bring down inflation. The latest economic data have come in stronger than expected, which suggests that the ultimate level of interest rates is likely to be higher than previously anticipated. The fed has already raised interest rates four and a half percent in the past year, but Powell notes that unemployment remains at its lowest level in more than 50 years and consumer spending remains strong. The fed could raise interest rates later this month by a half point rather than the quarter point that was previously expected. On capital hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO, news.

The Biden administration is suing to block JetBlue from buying spirit airlines. Attorney general Merrick Garland says the proposed nearly $4 billion deal would reduce competition in the airline industry. We alleged that if allowed to proceed this merger will limit choices and drive up ticket prices for passengers across the country. And we further allege that the impact of this merger will be particularly harmful for travelers who rely on what are known as ultra low cost carriers in order to fly. Those include working and middle class Americans who travel for personal as opposed to business reasons and who must pay their own way. JetBlue says the merger would boost competition by making the airline bigger and better able to go up against American United Delta and Southwest. 5 women in Texas are legally challenging the state 6 week abortion ban.

"Would include many different types of people involved with crypto. It would include digital asset wallet providers, miners, validators, and other people. Now, senator Marshall and senator Warren are bringing back their anti money laundering bill for another attempt. This bill works to stop crypto crime, but also to help regulators stop the flow of cryptocurrency to places like North Korea and drug traffickers. Now Warren talked about this during a hearing regarding crypto on Tuesday, and she thinks that the current anti money laundering rules are just not good enough for crypto companies. Warren and Marshall's original Bill from last December would have stopped banks and financial institutions from doing business with digital asset mixers like tornado cash. Because of their ability to hide transactions on public blockchains. If the bill is introduced the same way as it was the last December, that would mean if you're a U.S. citizen and you use offshore accounts and you transact $10,000 or more in digital assets, you have to report that. The Treasury Department would also have to check that money service businesses follow anti money laundering rules. Large U.S. crypto companies must register under these rules. Now Warren said during Tuesday's hearing that crypto was used a lot in the last year for illegal activities. Drug traffickers, North Korean hackers and ransomware attackers used crypto to make a lot of money, with drug traffickers making over a $1 billion North Korean hackers over a $1.7 billion and almost 500 million dollars made by ransomware attackers. That's why Warren thinks that anti money laundering rules need to be stricter for digital assets. Now, meanwhile, senator Tom tillis, he is a Republican from North Carolina, and he's creating a new law that would require digital asset exchanges and custodians in the United States to approve their reserves. This would be an independent verification. Tillis said that this new law would be easier to pass than a full on framework for cryptocurrency. Tillis is on the Senate banking committee, and he prefers a lenient regulatory approach. His bill aims to prevent another company collapse like FTX after a run on their exchange token. This bill also prohibits companies from mixing customer assets with company funds, which is something that FTX and alligator research are accused of having done. Now, under this proposed law, U.S. companies holding customer digital assets must share audited proof of reserves quarterly. These proof of the reserves will be made public on the Treasury Department's website. If a company can not find an auditing firm, they must use a third party firm to verify their holdings. If a company fails to submit those attestations, they will face civil penalties.

FTX Bankruptcy Judge Not Swayed by Letter From US Senators
"Wendy O is going to start us off today with an FTX bankruptcy update. What do you got when? Gosh, golly gee, you guys, this thing is going to be a topic conversation for a long time. Just in. Bipartisan group of U.S. senators calls for independent examiner to investigate FTX. And this bipartisan group is actually very interesting because it's comprised of senators, Elizabeth Warren, John hinkle looper, Tom tillis, and Cynthia Loomis, which I actually like her because she's kind of pro crypto. And shout out to hotel Jesus 'cause he also told me that many time you see anything bipartisan, it's not a good thing. You want them fighting and going at it. I don't know, that's what he said. But anyways, before U.S. senators sent a letter to the bankruptcy judge calling for independent examiner to be appointed to the case and they're urging the judge to support a motion to appoint an examiner to have full authority and resources to conduct an objective investigation of the activities that led to the collapse and they argue that the current adviser Sullivan and Cromwell advised FTX for years, leading up to its collapse and one of its partners even served as FTX general counsel, that seems like a conflict of interest to me, but just in the bankruptcy hearing today, Delaware judge John Dorsey called the letter inappropriate intervention in banking and proceedings which won't sway due to decisions. Jen, I need your opinion on this because it's kind of a heavy topic. And it's a lot to chat about. Yeah, so I read the story and I was like, oh yeah, I totally agree with the senators, and then I read the judges dance. I was like, yeah, I totally agree with the judge. So let's talk about Sullivan and Cromwell first. Assisting the current FTX leadership and identifying issues, the senators are saying that they're not a disinterested party because they've been working with FTX for a really long time and some of their partners have even served as general counsel for FTX. That really does sound like a conflict of interest. But at the end of the day, I think my opinion here is that the judge is right that this should all come out in court everyone should have a chance to respond to any of these matters and it seems like the court is compiling lots of different witnesses who can speak to or against this and it should all play out in court. It shouldn't be swayed by senators.

I got to be honest with you. I'm just so angry right now. I can barely speak. Go right ahead. I'm angry too, Mark. I'm a constituent, of course, of Tom tillis. And he wrote in on the Tea Party coattails and claimed to be such a grand conservative and he's been nothing but a disappointment, he supports immigration, reform, quote unquote. He's against the border wall. He just goes along with everything. Now he's in on this marriage bill to diminish the family and American marriages. It's just incredible to me how this guy keeps getting reelected. But once you've got a senator, you've got him for 6 years. One of the things. Listen, I don't even think he plans to run for the Senate again. And it's like these guys are retiring. They just don't give a damn. They just do whatever they want now. You're exactly right, but that's a long 6 years of doing whatever they like. And one of the things that people don't think about, they don't talk about, is every time you have someone like Tom tillis, that's another person who's discouraged into helping, contribute to Republican causes. It's another person who's discouraged about getting this is a very important point. I want you to hold on because you brought it up first. They talk about Trump, or they talk about the turnout, they talk about that.

"Bill crystal used to talk about conservatism as nationalism. He may not recall that, but he did. And our conservatism is populism. Now we have a brand new breed that talks about conservatism as a failure. And they talk about national populism or populist nationalism. And they are the foggiest idea what they're talking about. I do not get impressed by self aggrandizing pseudo intellectuals. And they say that it's politically untenable, really. Who is the last president who ran on, literally conservative principles, economic, He went to the biggest landslides in American electoral history. We don't try to espouse conservative principles anymore. Romney, McCain, the bushes, these people were not conservatives. They were Republicans. Tom tillis Republicans, Richard Nixon, Republicans. Chris Christie Republicans. So the idea that if somebody espouses knows how to explain, persuade market, conservative principle, that they can't win. Well then they're not conservatives who speak this way. They're rhinos, or there's something else. Populism hasn't been vetted, populism hasn't been defined. Populism hasn't told us what it's what it's guidelines are. Populism, a 150 years ago, with socialism. Socialism. Make America great again. That was 1984 that was Reagan's campaign line. Remember that, mister producer? She can believe in making America great again. You know, Ludwig von mises pointed out and he's right. That nowhere in all of his writings did Marx ever ever define what a class is. What's the middle class? He never defined them. Just like the so called populist today, never defines them.

"This is why I and now other conservatives are saying this is preposterous. What's taking place here? Tom tillis is running the show. Mitch McConnell's behind the scenes running the show. The liberal Republicans in the senator in control with the Democrats. And that includes entire Republican leadership. They're allowing all this to occur. Soon. Corn and sorrow, all of them. They're cutting their deals with the Democrats. They'll vote for it or against it depending on how many votes they need and what's going on in their home State, this is how it works. They deceive you. They can argue. Now stop screwing around in the house. And we're going to hold you responsible for what this Senate is doing. They need to see some strength. They're laughing at you. Now what is the point? If the Republicans are going to work with the Democrats to give them their Democrat agenda, that this thing that was I just read you in The Washington Post would tell us it doesn't secure the border. They get Amnesty. We don't even get a wall. Does that make sense to anybody? And we're giving Amnesty to 2 million people while four or 5 million people have come into this country already illegally. What are they going to be in line for Amnesty next? Answer is yes, of course. How do we know? Because Schumer said so. About a week ago. All illegal aliens should get. Amnesty, 20 cent. They should be on the road to citizenship. All of them. You see, this is why they hate Trump, and this is why they will hate dissent. So they will hate a Pompeo and hate others. Because they stand up to China and most of these politicians had members of their families and friends that are on the take with China. And being honest with you, because they stand up to illegal immigration. And most of these politicians are sellouts on illegal immigration. They do not want to conservative in there. They do not. And the reason why the media keep asking questions about Trump, even though he's an ex-president. And not Biden. It's because the media do the bidding of the establishment, both parties, that's exactly what they're doing. You don't have Democrats on these shows being asked questions about Biden's role and taking money, according to Peter schweizer and not just him. Emails and text men. No, you have them covering them up. They're the pretorian guard as I've said for decades. As we now look forward to the holidays and the new year, we have much to accomplish. It's now clear than ever, the Republicans need to take a strong and principled stand against the radical left to make sure the newly elected House majority doesn't squander the opportunity to lead and hand it over to some moderate or Democrat, which they damn well might do.

"Gentlemen, millions and millions of illegal aliens have come into this country. Significant percentage of those, the majority of those, we know nothing about. They've come into the country and they're unidentified. They're unknown. The ruling class our government has failed us. And now I want you to pay attention to what I'm going to tell you. Which just last week, when 12 Republicans got together with the Democrats to vote on a so called marriage law. Which will be used as Mike Lee as pointed out. To go after those of you who do not believe in anything but traditional marriage, particularly go after small businesses, think tanks and religious organizations and religious schools and religious oriented hospitals. Among those who supported that strongly negotiated was a guy by the name of Tom tillis. He's the senator, one of them. From North Carolina, he wants to be governor of North Carolina. That's the rumor. Tom tillis and his ilk, they see that the Senate is very, very tight. They see that they can bring along 6 8 ten, 12 Republicans with them. The romneys, the Collins, the Murkowski's and the mcconnells. That vote on the marriage issue could not have happened without Mitch McConnell greenlighting it. But he's a coward. So he pushed it through, he didn't vote for it. But it's done. Now they're under the next subject. You know what it is? Amnesty. In the lame duck session? A minority of Republicans, but nonetheless, including the leadership, want to work with the Democrats to give millions of individuals Amnesty. These would be the same Republicans who are trashing Donald Trump about the constitution. Does it sound like they care about the rule of law in the constitution? No right, right, scoop. The Senate is about to shove through at pathway to citizenship for dream real legals. Thanks to Republican Tom tillis. Tom tillis is behind both of them. The marriage act and this. Here's The Washington Post. Senator Tom tillis and Kirsten sinema have reached an agreement on a dread framework of immigration reform compromises. Sources familiar with the situation tell me this is The Washington Post. Notice how so many of the Republicans are cut out of the entire process, but he's working with McConnell. None of this would happen without McConnell. They involve issues such as the fate of dreamers, quote unquote, brought here illegally as children. And the processing of asylum seekers at the southern border. With a ten Republican senators necessary to overcome a filibuster go along. As The Washington Post, a white paper laying out this till a cinema blueprint is circulating on Capitol Hill, congressional aides, and advocates plugged into the talks tell me that the details are in flux. Here's a partial list of the major items it contains. Some form of pet to citizenship for 2 million dreamers. Notice how we call people dreamers now not illegal aliens. It's amazing. A large boost in resources to speed up the processing of asylum seekers, including new processing centers and more asylum officers and judges. All that means is more people coming. More resources to expedite the removal of migrants who don't qualify for asylum. Really? Well, if the administration won't allow them to be removed, it doesn't matter. A continuation of the title 42 COVID health will restriction on migrant supplying for asylum. And so the new processing centers are operational with the aim of a one year cutoff. That fixes nothing that puts it off for a year. More funding for border officers. Now what's not there? Mister paducah. Securing the border. The wall. The idea behind this compromises this, it gives Democrats protections for 2 million dreamers and beefed up defenses. Have due process rights of some migrants. Due process rights? It gives Republicans faster removal of migrants who felt a qualified for asylum. To prevent them from remaining in the country, a continued restriction on applications for next year and more border security. There's not more border security. You could have 10 million, 10 million more border security workers. If the administration won't allow them to do their job, it doesn't matter. So tell us it's going to sell out the American people. It's going to sell out the people in North Carolina. Their businesses in North Carolina who thrive on illegal immigration and he damn well knows it. And this is what the rhinos give you. And again, none of the happening but from McConnell. It remains to be seen whether enough Republicans or Democrats writes rights goop will support this in the Senate. The Republican center from North Carolina knows this, but would seem to have other plans to try and get this through with Democrats still in charge. In other words, they know when the Republicans take the house, they can't happen. Tom tillis is quickly becoming one of the worst Republicans we have in the Senate. One of the worst. I thought you should know. Always mister bipartisanship. Is a no bodies a backbencher. Because it's so close, he can make the difference. And so can the other reprobates, in the Republican Party, this is a disaster. I want you to think about this. We have a sufficient number of Republicans, perhaps up to 30% of the Republicans in the Senate led by Mitch McConnell. Who are trying to get massive spending through increase the debt ceiling by a massive amount of money. Voted on this marriage law that will impact every single religious institution. Now I want to give Amnesty to illegal aliens. And they want to get it all done in the lame duck while the Democrats control the house with Nancy Pelosi. And of course, control the Senate. They want to get it all done before the Republicans take over the house. This is why I'm so furious with so many of these Republicans. Because they don't have their act together. They can't even vote on a speaker. Get your speaker, get McCarthy in there. If you don't like them down the road, then deal with it. Get them in there. Get your senior management in there. Get these committees set, hit the ground running at 12. And one second on January 3rd at noon and one second.

They wouldn't have been in a majority. And they still hate us. You understand the Republican establishment hates us. Just like the media and the Democrats. I'm a constitutional conservative. That's what I am. Federalism. Here we have this guy, this senator in North Carolina. This will be purposely spun by the media and I don't care. What's that senator's name? I can't remember his name. It doesn't matter. No. And so the Democrats are going to propose another gimmick to codify same sex marriage. You don't have to quote unquote codify same sex marriage. The Supreme Court already ruled that the law of the land is that same sex marriage must be permitted throughout the land. Tom tillis, Tommy tell us what is Tom tillis done in the Senate. Nothing. But you voted for him. I would have voted for him right there. We need your vote, okay. What has he done? Nothing. They're saying, we need a forward message. Well, what's the message? So the Democrats are very good at scheming and they say, okay, we want to codify. Same sex marriage. And he announces, we Republicans need to all get behind that. Just get behind it. So just think about this for a second. Put this subject aside, but think about what he's doing. The Supreme Court already ruled. There's literally no threat to this. We do have issues of federalism so only on the edges, you know, the states have to make certain kinds of decisions, whether a baker has to bake for the, you know, that sort of thing. And he blows off federalism. He blows off the Supreme Court. He's ready to vote, baby. Let's go. Let's vote. That's the problem. These are not serious people. They don't believe in the constitution. They say they do. But they don't. That's the truth. I would ask you this. What is it about a criss-cross or a Larry Hogan that would appeal to anybody? Nothing. Nobody cares about them. Nobody wants them, but the media propped them up and in Chris Christie's case. You need a crane to prop that guy up. But you understand my point. Why in the world, when the debt is as bad as it is, did 19 Republicans led by Mitch McConnell vote to add $1.9 trillion to the debt. On so called infrastructure that was almost all climate change. Why did they do that? Why did this so called Republican leader do that? He didn't do anything. Where is the Mitch McConnell bill for securing the border? There isn't one. Why not? Where is it? Oh, there isn't one. Oh, okay. But don't worry, it's the future they want to look into. They're going to lead in the future. I got a lot more to say, but I just want to be very, very clear. We don't follow what the media say. We don't follow what the establishment say. We don't follow any of that. We have to think for ourselves. It's very, it's not complicated. There's a lot of static out there. We discern who the conservatives are and they're the ones that typically might talk about something like, you know, freedom, individual liberty, private property rights, something like that. We don't need the great compromisers, like McConnell, because we always lose. Because Schumer is smarter than McConnell. Schumer is more aggressive than McConnell. Schumer is more. Strategic than McConnell. McConnell's there, burping into his chest. How do you have a Republican leader who can't be a Republican leader? I've never seen anything like this in my life. For 15 years of this, don't worry, I got to vote for up here. I wrapped up here. I'll be right back. Months

Pastor Paul Chappell: What's the Faith-Base of Those 12 Republicans?
"Have a list. This is a freshly updated list of Republican senators who are supporting this, and all of these folks, by the way, were just like Barack Obama and one of them in particular was staunchly opposed to same sex marriage. That would be Mitt Romney of Utah, who now supports the bill, also Tom tillis of North Carolina, rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, a Lisa Murkowski is hinting that she will support this along with senators, let's see here. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa, telling Business Insider that she was keeping an open mind about the bill. So you could have more Republican senators joining the Democrats pastor. Yes, that's a concern. And I always, as a pastor, I always ask myself, what's the faith base of the individual making that vote, what's going on at their home church? Because it usually influences them. And then the second thing is who are their donors. And there's a lot of money that comes from this crowd. What they're all saying is that this was passed at the Supreme Court level. We're just agreeing with the Supreme Court. But that's not exactly as I understand it true. This is an opportunity for them to be what our founders intended. It checks and balances in how far this law is codified and how much of a nuisance it becomes to the faith community. And so at the very least, they need to consider language in the in this that excludes religious organizations and I've yet to hear about that. Well,

Caller: Contacting Republicans Who Supported Respect for Marriage Act
"Not only did I make one call, I made two calls. This morning, I saw where senator burr and senator Tom tillis here, my state home state of North Carolina voted to advance that Bill. And when I called tied, I got voicemails. And I left a voicemail and for Tom till I asked him why he was explaining why he was supporting that. That's going to declare war on people of faith. You know, he and I are about to stay in age and I also ask him if he could give me one biblical verse and the holy Bible old test of a New Testament that condones marriage between people of the same sex. Todd, it's not just this issue with pillows or burr, going back a year ago when it was extending the debt limit and then the infrastructure Bill, it was the gun Bill earlier this year. These guys have voted to write lock stock and barrel with Joe Biden. And when they vote that way Todd and you call them up, all you get is the voicemail and they will not call you back. They are tone deaf to the people like me that have voted to put them in office. And once they get there and Washington tide, I don't know why. But they align themselves with things that I never thought that they would. And it just blows my mind.

"Are we serious? Guys, can you speak up governor we can't even hear you? We got harvesting going on in these things. Forget about fraud. We have harvesting. We have curing our harvesting and curing. Now if you're a Republican governor, you get rid of that crap. The Wall Street Journal editorial page. Viciously used to attack the Tea Party. As a matter of fact, that editorial page, which is being cited all day for reasons I don't understand. It's basically 5 office nerds who hang around and write another torrential big deal. This is from July 2nd, 2001. I've read it before. It's about immigration. We annually celebrate the 4th of July with the immigration, the force that tamed this vast continent and built this great republic. This is not simply history, immigration continues to refresh and nourish America. We may be better off with more of it. Indeed, during the immigration debate of 1984, ready for this, we suggested an ultimate goal to guide passing policies, a constitutional amendment. 5 words. There shall be open borders. Did you know that? I guess Joe Biden was listening way back in 2001. And when it comes to the debate over the debt ceiling, with his country's debt is spiraling completely out of control, $31 trillion wasn't that long ago, folks, when it was $16 trillion, you'll see The Wall Street Journal editorial page line up behind McConnell and the big spenders and lie about the credit of the nation at stake and so forth and so on. McConnell has done this every year. He's done nothing to confront this. Nothing. Zero. Mark my words. You will see. You will see. How does a party that has a leader like this run on anything anyway? What are they going to run on? Well, he doesn't want him to run on anything. And now this all upsets some of you. Josh hawley. Josh hawley says, here's what we need to do. And he lays out a plan that could come from George McGovern. Am I right, mister producer? All about federal programs, federal money, federal subsidies, but always for the working class, of course, because the government so fishing and can target it. Government bureaucrats who he doesn't trust or control all of our economic trade overseas and what the hell is this? This is the new populism Mark. Populism, you're giving all this power to bureaucrats. What's so populism about it? Populism, you want to know what economic populism is called capitalism. That's populism. We the people. Not some strange, weird, yes. That's right. We have to help the working class and the working people. You're damn right we do. Get the hell off their back. Get out of their way. The private sector employs steel workers. The private sector employs coworkers. The private sector employs electricians and plumbers and roofers and construction workers. The private sector. Employs. Is that middle class? I don't care if you're a Republican or a conservative, what kind of label you put on your lapel? What makes you think you can run this economy better than mister and Mrs. America? We just don't need a new team managing our economy. We don't need any team managing our economy. Let's look at the candidates that Mitch McConnell wanted to run. And did run in some cases. The state Senate president in New Hampshire. He fairly liberal Republican. Wow. In Alaska, Lisa Murkowski, utterly unrepentant, unreliable. Sorry, I stole this COVID. A liberal Republican. He opposed Marco Rubio when I endorsed Marco Rubio during the Tea Party. He opposed Ted Cruz when I endorsed Ted Cruz during the Tea Party. We could go on and on. Who else? What other fantastic candidates did Mitch McConnell want to bring to the United States Senate to help save the country? And he could ensure that they would be elected, don't you know? That's right. I checked it out with the American enterprise institute. They feel mighty sure that they would have been elected. Or better yet, if Donald Trump would just drop dead, then we know all these Republicans could get elected. Unbelievable. Tell me, have these Republicans done? How did they do without Reagan? Who they opposed? How did they do without Trump who they opposed? How did they do without the Tea Party? They wouldn't have been in a majority. And they still hate us. You understand the Republican establishment hates us. Just like the media and the Democrats. I'm a constitutional conservative. That's what I am. Federalism.

From Bloomberg world headquarters in New York, I'm Doug prisoner, the stock market was down on the final day of the third quarter as the market retreated from the notion of a soft landing. The fed's favorite inflation metric picked up steam in August, the personal consumption expenditures price index rose three tenths of 1% from July and topped estimates all week fed officials reinforced the idea of higher rates. Today, vice chair lael brainard said it will take time for the full effect of tighter financial conditions to work through different sectors. So monetary policy will need to be restrictive for some time to have confidence that inflation is moving back to target. For these reasons, we are committed to avoiding pulling back prematurely, but we also recognize that risks may become more two sided. The downside risk include the potential for financial instability and the higher probability of recession. Sarah house is senior economist at Wells Fargo, she says the American economy will be in recession around the middle of next year. Right now, you still have a lot of momentum in the labor market that pushes that timing off. That's helping support real consumer spending, but we're still dealing with very elevated inflation. We think it's going to take a while to come down. That's going to keep the pressure on real incomes. And as we learned in the GDP revisions with the personal income and spending data, we've seen households dip more deeply into that excess savings. And so I think there's less to fall back on.

"Has a tough time in midterm elections and Democrats face many challenges this fall. However, small dollar donations where they have outraised Republicans offer a more nuanced picture. Democrats face many headwinds going into the midterms, but money may not be one of them. Democratic candidates have raised substantial sums for their campaigns and are outpacing Republicans, particularly among small baller donors. In June, Democrats raised double the amount in small donations, $200 or less than they raised in the same period for the 2018 midterms. In key Senate matchups, Democrats are well ahead of their GOP rivals. Take Ohio, representative Tim Ryan, a Democrat, raised $9.1 million in the second quarter. More than 97% of those contributions were a $100 or less, according to his campaign. His overall take was four times that of his opponent, Republican J D Vance, though mister Vance has since had a cash infusion from Senate pack. Success in fundraising doesn't always translate into electoral victory. In North Carolina in 2020, Democrats raised $182 million to challenge senator Tom tillis, who defeated Cal Cunningham after revelations of infidelity. Similarly, senator Susan Collins, a Republican, easily saw off a challenge from Democrat Sara Gideon. Miss Gideon, the speaker of the state legislature, raised so much outside money that she ended with nearly $15 million unspent. This shows the limits of what money can buy, says Dave Kearney, a political adviser to Texas governor Greg Abbott, who will face beto o'rourke in November. All the democratic money went to cause celebs, he said, noting that this strategy helps Republicans. Every dollar that goes to a candidate that's not in the hunt is wasted. This story was reported by Simon Motley for the monitor.

"Touch, just to kind of reinforce what you were saying earlier. I heard about that schedule F plan. I guess it was maybe Friday. They talked about it on Steve Bannon. Joe Scarborough had somebody on MSNBC talking about it, but I think that is a great plan. I've been thinking about that for a long time and just hope now, but it's going to be implemented. And along with that, you mentioned about doing away with some cabinet departments, like the Department of Education, you know, I'd like to see that extend maybe some other departments that are unnecessary elected apartment of energy. I mean, I can think of the Department of Homeland Security. A lot of these agencies that need to be reformed from the top down such as the FBI, CIA, DoJ, all of that. But Todd, what concerns me and listen to the congressman is something else that I think the Republican Party in the upcoming elections needs to do when I don't see them doing it. And we're just talking about this Friday. I don't see a new contract with America like we had in 1994. It's not enough just to win the midterms and recapture the House and the Senate, but we need to dominate in the way we need to do that is I think to have a contract with America and have every Republican whether then Oregon, Oklahoma, whether you're in South Carolina or South Dakota to sign on to that. And I think it needs to focus on a few things. One, the economy, inflation, the southern border, energy independence, crime, and then lastly, the culture. And reaffirming our commitment to the constitution and the Bill of Rights. Because I voted for a lot of Republicans since 1980 and I can't tell you how many ones I've been disappointed in case in point most recently in 2020 with Tom tillis in two years before that was Richard burr.

So we're talking about 95% of the Marine Corps has not been fully vaccinated. 5% are not gotten any jams. So they're talking about so talking about the numbers.

This is going to be coming out in drips and drabs. By the way, people have been asking, okay, what about what about religious accommodations?

All Things Considered
Democrats are now unlikely to win a majority in the Senate: Here's where things stand
"Republicans are enjoying a much better election than anticipated. Republicans are now poised to maintain their majority in the Senate. I just received a very gracious call from Sara Gideon conceding the raise voice of Republican Senator Susan Collins, speaking earlier today in Maine, a state that Democrats had considered a must win to have a chance at flipping the Senate. No. In the House Republicans are expected to pick up seats shrinking the Democrats majority down to single digits for more on this NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis is here. Hey there, Sue what went wrong, so to speak for Democrats? Yeah, I mean, it's been a complete reversal of fortune for Republicans down the ballot. There had been this widespread confidence that Democrats were going to take over the Senate that they could gain as many as six or seven seats. And that Democrats were poised to grow their majority in the House by as many as 10 to 20 seats. Obviously, not if that happened. I think the one thing everyone is pointing to right now is just how wrong the Poles were. I think in that main Senate race that's a great example. The Democrats Sara Gideon, she led in public polls all year long and yet still fell far behind in the race. I talked to election analyst Sean Trendy this morning, and he told me that polling simply did not account for Trump's support that a significant number of Trump voters just were never accounted for. Those are the exact people that when you hear a phone call in the person says Hi, I'm from the New York Times. Would you take it all? Just go click. I think it is that straightforward. I also talked to Democratic Congressman Ami Bera of California today, and he said that the polling was way off from where it was in the 2018 midterms. And that's when Democrats won. He basically told me he just thinks Democrats couldn't account for the effect that Trump has when he himself is on the ballot. While it looks like Republicans will hold their majority in the Senate, Not all races have been called. Can you tell us what still outstanding? Yeah, There's still five races that haven't been called 47 have been called for Democrats 48 for Republicans won were watching really closely Is Michigan. There's a Democratic incumbent there. Gary Peters. He's running narrowly behind a Republican John James. Obviously, what could be a pickup opportunity for Republicans. North Carolina remains really tight, but incumbent Republican Senator Tom Tillis is leading. You know, that was always seen as a state that was critical to the majority. So if Republicans hold it, I think that's one of the reasons why they seem to feel pretty secure. Right now. Alaska hasn't been called, but I don't really see any reason there to think it's going to be a Democratic pick up and Last one's Georgia. There's two Senate races there. One of them is going to go to a January runoff, and it's quite possible. The other one where it's held by incumbent Republican David per two, might be able to hold it off and win it out, right. Given that there are some races that are going to be uncertain, at least for the next few days does that What does that mean for the Senate majority? It does, and you know, depending on how Georgia goes, it could take quite some time. North Carolina in particular, could be tight and could be subject to court challenge. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke to that reality earlier today in Kentucky. You can anticipate in close elections, Both sides will be lawyered up and we'll end up in court. It's happened over and over and over again. Nothing unusual, and I do want to see her. I think McConnell has a point, and it's worth focusing on that. I think a lot of people are really nervous about what's gonna be happening with Balan challenges. It's really not uncommon, especially in Senate races to go through court challenges. Before they're certified. It happens almost every election year. That's NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. Thank you. You're welcome.
