GOP Representative Jim Sensenbrenner to retire
"You I'm gonna be joined in just a few seconds here by congressman Jim Sensenbrenner who has been a powerful member of the United States house of representatives for decades former committee chairman and long time representative of currently called the fifth congressional district and the just the clouds of change a little bit over the years but it's always been a very very large chunk of the Milwaukee suburbs congressman Sensenbrenner good afternoon hi mark how are you doing I'm a great I you have it at all to do you want to share with our audience this afternoon so I'm just going to allow you to share it yes mark I wanna let you and your listeners know all of that I've decided not to seek reelection a year from November I always knew that when the time came for me to step aside I would come to that conclusion and I've done that now it's been a great run for the last forty two years I think I've made a difference both for our district in our country in building the Republican Party and making us safer through the patriot act in this modernization as well as standing up for disabled people and me on board so the time has come I think to pass the torch I'm proud of what I've done and then of what I want to do is to thank everybody who has supported me over the years because I never could have done it alone. obviously you've been there for a long time you had a few health problems have been some health issues in your family are those contributing factors here or have you just decided that you wanna roll off into the sunset and not have to do so much hard work for the rest of your life well first of all I'm not planning on going off into the sunset I will remain active in Wisconsin politics health question the answer is no my wife who has severe aneurysm is stabilized and I am feeling you know up to the job and you all are going to be hearing an awful lot for me during the next sixteen months when I survive my final term of particularly if the Democrats are foolish enough to actually go through an impeachment in the Judiciary Committee that was my next question you do and you're not resigning or anything like that your term would run to January of twenty one and you are going to serve that entire que van is correct I am not resigning I am serving out my term and at the end of this term I will have been in Congress longer than anybody else in Wisconsin history including David OP was that done was that a goal at any point what it all really. for the last two years but you know I I I figured yeah after all the pushing and pulling in the last Congress you know I wanted to be there in this Congress whether we were in the majority or the minority and when you're in the minority of course you have nothing to say about the schedule but I learned a long time ago that when you have a good idea you get a bipartisan sponsor co sponsor of it because in our divided Congress unless you do that it's not going anywhere. have you made a decision as to whether or not you're going to endorse someone who seeks to replace your I'm not going to win Doris anybody I'm sure there's going to be a scrum of Republicans running and I hope they all seek the party endorsement next month or next March the fifth district caucus the only thing I can say to those who are contemplating running are actually running is don't kill each other please. the I. up. ten year of your career you I mean the the what the media will describe me the use different adjectives than those of the conservatives would describe but forceful aggressive feisty combative committed all of those words do come to do come divided describing your career I mean it's hard what you mentioned that you're not going to go watch silently I can't imagine you ever being silent ready thank you not only were a consistent conservative and maybe a little bit ahead of your time in some of your conservative points of view you chose to make yourself vocal and clear and aggressive as you know there are some members of Congress we call a back benchers they go there and you never hear anything from them again and they cast their votes in the collector paychecks and so on you chose from the beginning. to be heard and that the voice of sense in better would be known and would be out there I talk for just a moment about that and about your own style and the way that you've kind of handle the comported yourself in your life tenure in Congress well after my first election I got a call from former president Ford he said Jim you have a safe district you can either be a great constituents Orvis congressman or hire people who can do that my staff has been great or you can be somebody who actually aggressively pursues and passes legislation that was very good advice and that's what I've done really right from the beginning and I don't regret doing that because the staff can do an awful lot of things that they can their goose registration they can't debated they can't vote on it they can't negotiate with the Senate and with the White House and I I just had my staff pull together some figures following Gerry Ford's advice I've been the lead sponsor coast sponsor of four thousand two hundred ninety nine pieces of legislation seven hundred sixty eight of them passed the house and two hundred seventeen of them have been signed into law by six different presidents so I think I made a difference both for our district in for our country and I've kept in touch hundred town meetings average every year nobody can come close to that in there a lot of people who come into the town meetings and say I've been to direct I've been to route and things like that but I think that this is an issue of accountability and I guess somebody could be wishy washy and six months later when things don't turn out correctly people say why didn't he or she tell us that that's not my style some is not going to pass I think people are newer right away. and they are put their efforts into something else. when I got wind that you wanted to have something to say obviously I didn't think it was you announcing reelection because you pronounce your candidacy for reelection ninety seven thousand times that it was something else one of the questions that will come up is why now are you burned out to get tired of the attitude in Washington did that come into play or is it simply that it's time and you want to go out on your own terms while you can still do it on your own terms well it's you know the thing is is that the framers set up the constitution that required compromise which is kind of a naughty word nowadays and it's been frustrating I'll be the first one to admit that I wanted to go out on my own terms I don't haven't announced opponent free election and nobody can come up and say well I forced him out map because there's nobody that has any credibility at math you know the other thing you know is is that I'd like to get a new representative in the fifth district before redistricting because if I served another term and would be leaving in twenty twenty two I can see the wolves on both sides of the aisle on Madison seeing themselves going to Washington and carving the seat up and believe me I have work to make the wall counties more Republican the wall counties have got to be kept together in redistricting if Republicans are going to have any chance of winning a statewide election yeah I guess we should tell people since she has changed a bit over every ten years you're just like I guess could roughly be described as a small portion of western Milwaukee county the northern half of walk a shot I think all they're virtually all of Jefferson I think you have all the virtually all of Dodge and Washington you no longer have sake I think I think I pretty much yeah you're pretty and the city of whitewater the city of white water ice. get a little bit down there and your white water in that so that's it yet it could change a little bit over the years with the redistricting and so on but it is generally bad. a Republican district and wanted which well you had challengers none that were ever very serious I guess my final question to you is was that liberating and allowing you to. not have to worry at all about. taking positions that were in chores by having a district that was perceived is generally safe do you think do you think that allowed you to become an even more effective and outspoken voice for conservatism it was because I mean I think you you pre date even Tommy Thompson's governorship in here what if you think about the foundational roots of the contemporary Republican Party in Wisconsin I mean your the route I mean it's it's been you and everything's calm well you better route well. very clearly so all the way the old nine district was when I was first elected it didn't start out that way half the courthouse in half the legislative delegation in Waukesha county were Democrats we had a party leadership that complained about conservatives at the bar at the Country Club and the next spring with my support down Taylor was elected Waukesha county chairman and with the party signing up for members and me pointing out folks who have fled from the city that is Republicans that really stand up for your values of small government good schools will crime rates lower taxes and you are a shared your previous voting habits and start voting for Republicans they have a lot of people but led by don Taylor bureau have been able to turn walkie Sean Washington counties into the Republican strongholds of they are and in terms of my political legacy I can look back at that it was a great deal of pride. you you may I I said that was my last question I do have another one you obviously timed the announcement the election is next year the primary election which is where all the action to be on the Republican side is you know a full you're a ways you're giving the other would be candidates an opportunity to go on this it will catch anyone by surprise even though you will Sir about obviously the entirety of the term did you have this in your mind last year when you were writing that the the election that you won back in twenty eighteen was the last is this but thought for a while it or did this come up in the last week what where's where's the time line bad where arms of how you come to this well you know what I what I can say is that Sean Duffy and I were the two most responsible for convincing Paul Ryan to run for speaker and I made a commitment at least mentally that I would serve out and be Paul Ryan's good friend in backstop and he gave me a couple of messages to straighten out which were real masses that you know Paul's retirement was a surprise but no surprise but things have gone along so far down the you know I said that you know really we don't need to have an uproar in the fifth district because it will hurt the statewide take care of well you know heard governor Walker and Attorney General Shamil and you know needed to have the the work that I was doing and the endorsements that I could make the keep the the fifth district legislators reelected. sure enough well it's I'm sure we're going to have you on the program is going to be a lot of things that happen over the next sixty months and I appreciate your joining us to make this time I would say epic and historic announcement this afternoon well thank you very much for giving me the opportunity mark okay thanks

"Back now to our conversation with Shelby Emmett and Lisa graves. Lisa. Let me give you a chance to react to Shelby's last common. And then we'll keep going with more audience questions. Thanks, joshua. Well, you know, I documented the actual history of that stand your ground legislation, and what we know is that the NRA lobbyists took that Bill to an Alec meeting closed door session in Texas that was co chaired by WalMart at the time. The biggest retailer bullets in the world in the biggest seller of rifles, and it was voted on by corporate members. And Alec legislators to make it a national model. That's how that Bill move. Forward was at the NRA's urging while Alec has a hounded the fact that it's not currently one of its models. Alec has done nothing to get those bills repealed across the country, the bills that it helped push into law, and that's the case with voter ID and other measures as well. And so you have a situation which Alec wants to distance itself from the pass without actually doing any repair of those measures. And then in the current context a number. Of the Alec legislators in the states have been accused of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct. Alec has been silent on those. I think Alec hides win it sees controversy. And does a lot of PR spin was regards to the NRA and the standard ground. How how do we know about this? What's what's the for that? Well, I went through and found open records material that we obtained we also went through historical records archives of lawmaker databases, and I've got the material to show exactly how that Bill moved through Florida. And how it was introduced at the Alec meeting that the NRA introduced it. And and also that WalMart co-chaired the meeting at the time. So there's ample documentation, you can find out more at Alec exposed. You can also find out materials through documented dot net and some of our reporting on the intercept dot com. She'll be before we keep Well, I I want to address the issues of sexual harassment as a woman as women who works in an organization ram by a female CEO. That's just quite disgusting. We are an organization we're not legislators parents. And if they did act in a ridiculous horrific way towards women or anybody else, they should be held accountable for that by their voters and their states and by their constituents, but to be a female into work under a female CEO that that's just the spectacle that she would say something like that, quite frankly, Tom wrote this quote about Alec from former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson, the quote is I always loved going to meetings because I always found new ideas. And then I take them back to Constan disguise them a little bit and declare that it's mine I'm interested in that quote show be particularly because there are a number of lawmakers who spoken very openly about how much they love. Alec Senator Rick Scott, who's Florida's former governor? Now, a Senator representing Florida had this to say about why he thinks Alec is important, and this is from YouTube video on Alex YouTube channel, I know that with less regulation. More more good things happen. We've been able to Florida to cut fifty four. I think it's fifty four or five. Eighty five hundred regulations and with with that we've had unbelievable prosperity now in DC, I'm gonna do my best to make sure that Washington's quits telling us what to do we should let her states make their own decisions. We need to have laboratories now, I wanna make sure Florida's the best laboratory, of course. But, you know, Alex, doing a great job and thanks for all your hard work to make sure that we keep state's rights, and we don't have continued federal government tried to take over all of our rights. That's florida. Senator Rick Scott who previously represented Florida as its governor. Shelby. What's your take on the appeal of Alec to lawmakers? Sure. I think what the appeal is it will look happening in DC right now..

"Never miss any of the show for your iphone or Android. So at two o'clock today, we did not start with what we usually start with the all Arizona daily. Download five big local stories five local stories. We started with the Phoenix police a press conference. This was the first time. The Phoenix police department have talked about the horrific incident that took place at hacienda healthcare. A twenty nine year old woman in a vegetative state raped gave birth to a baby boy on December twenty ninth. Apparently, no one knew she was pregnant. I don't know if anyone stop to see how she was doing for eight months nine months, but nobody knew so obviously the Phoenix police department has to investigate this. It is a national story, and it is a nightmare for this woman and her family who by the way, they're going to take the baby in. They say they're gonna have a loving family. They're gonna take the baby in. So Tommy Thompson from the Phoenix PD had a press conference and met the media and ask for help. Yeah. Do they have any suspects? I don't know. No, no. He didn't. He no. He wanted the public's help which is kinda disappointing because we want to know a do you got to have the guy? We have the person we want them on we want the monster. Oh, you don't. Okay. So it's up to the public. Well, that means that this investigation could take a lot longer. Let suffice it to say DNA will be one of our key tools in its investigation that plus information from the community. Okay. And that makes sense. Child. The child is going to be DNA tested the person or persons that they go through all the DNA inside and outside. I thought that was interesting too that they're casting their net. Not just inside that building of all the staff and all the male staff of that of that healthcare facility, but outside the building to that could mean visitors that could mean maintenance people that could mean anybody who came into that building. Maybe family members don't know it could be somebody went to visit someone else there you go. And that that they are going to have to give their DNA and that child will confirm through DNA testing who that person is. So no suspect idiot, this is gonna be a tough one. And by the way, they said this is going to be well, they said it exactly like this quote him. This is not a short-term investigation. This is a complex investigation could be very long. So I totally get that. So the DNA tests are happening. They've had to obtain search warrants and court orders. Great great. And you can't just get those results in a matter of minutes. So they're gonna take awhile to come back. Yes. Also, I want everybody at this house of horrors to be interviewed, nurses, doctors everybody because I also want to know if there's a cover up I want to know, if if there were people that went into this woman's room and knew she was pregnant and never said anything, I know the Phoenix police department will do those interviews, but it goes without even having to say, everyone who said this. We're not saying anything new how do you not know there's a woman pregnant, how do you know that? I mean, goodness. The baby was the baby is crowning and known in the hospital could could figure that out until December twenty nine come on. Well, it just doesn't make sense. It makes no sense doesn't make sense. There are some women. You can tell there's some women. You can't tell are pregnant. I totally get it. But if you're a healthcare facility aren't doctors checking this woman aren't people noticing that she's gaining weight. Aren't you noticing? She's not having a period, aren't you? Because she vegetative state harass. So there are people there. The p the great people at the Phoenix police department. They're doing the investigative measures. Now, one of the things that I wanted to know, and I really didn't understand. And I don't know if I don't know if I get it still very point. Yeah. Couple things. Why did it take twelve days for the Phoenix police department to come out and talk about why is that important? Why why what is the delay? What do you suspect? Or what do you think the delay is or why does that bug you because I'm thinking well until they have something to put out there. Why would they give a press? I mean, it's almost two weeks after something that you know, we just got back this week. We know that this radio station been talking about this story. Well, well, you know before we got back on Monday. Right. We know that everybody's talking about it. We know everybody wants answers. I would think the police department would wanna come out in at least, you know. So it's about that. Yeah. If you don't have any answer say, you don't have any answers. But don't wait twelve days. The other thing is they didn't say this was a sexual assault investigation. Until today. Why the heck not it's cloudy sexual assault investigations confusing to me because we'll what else would it be? I mean, this woman has been comatose for fourteen years. How is it? How would it not be? I I didn't understand that show. Tommy Thompson, Phoenix PD on the delay to talk to the media twelve days. Part of the reason we begin an investigation is any suspects. One of the one of the tools that we use is information that is provided to the suspect and often times when a suspect thinks that something is less serious. They are not as quick to go underground or to go into hiding. Okay. Listen, I'm not a cop. I don't know if I buy that probably I'll give the police department the benefit of the doubt, they know what they're doing. But I don't really get that. Are you trying to smoke out somebody? But, but if you are why on purpose, would you delay speaking to the media or delay saying it's a sexual assault investigation. When as soon as the story hit everybody knew that the woman was raped or that there was something that had a sexual assault nature to it. Yeah. I don't know why they did that either. But the cops would put out information knowing that it would call somebody to. Flee or not flee or whatever. So I just don't know. But hopefully, they catch this person sooner than later, but today left you with more questions than answers. Unfortunately, unfortunately, it's going to be a while before we find out. Just a terrible terrible story. It is woman in a vegetative state giving birth assembler twenty th the baby is apparently doing ok not great was coding voting twenty nine. Right. That's not good. So tend to make sure that the child is going to be fine. PCH you're going to get the best care that right? Okay. Coming up next. We've got former governor Jan brewer MAC and Gaydos political insider, why don't we go down this road with her. She came back for two thousand nineteen I know how much should governor Ducey get involved with the horror that happened at hacienda healthcare with this woman in a vegetative state? Can he just shut that place down tomorrow? We'll ask governor brewer next..

The Lieutenant governor of the state ran for the United States Senate and was a longtime member of the Wisconsin state Senate prior to that. Tommy Thompson is probably the biggest governmental junkie, the state is ever had policy. Wonk who had his fingers involved in everything? He was the longtime state state assembly Republican leader intimately involved in Republican politics and probably knew as many when he came into office, newest Betty, Republicans and business leaders in the state is anybody who ever took the position. Marty Schreiber was a former Milwaukee officials father was a big time Milwaukee democrat extremely well. Connected. And prior to him I mentioned Pat Lucey former chairman of the state Democratic Party close advisor to the Kennedys. That's what we've had. And now we've got a guy who comes out of DPI. It'd be like choosing somebody who was the county. Click claire. You probably would get somebody even more is qualify. The county clerk might actually deal with more issues that state government would deal with the DP I ever did. So how do we move forward here in this environment? I think the thing that's going to be difficult is as the Republicans in the legislature tried to do what they wanna do. You're not really dealing with Iverson going to be dealing with whomever is pressuring givers to do what he's doing because Tony Iverson respond to any of these things. Now, what are the dachshund? Scott Walker was that he didn't listen to anybody. That he did really had a staff that ever was. Walker never had like a super aide who. Well, the style is different from Trump. He's like Trump in this regard. Scott Walker's closest advisor was Scott Walker. Tommy Thompson was a little bit different in that he tended to have very strong chiefs of staff who did a lot of the nuts and bolts kinds of things. See you are a governor Walker who always knew what his plan was what is long view was. He knew where he wanted again, whether you agreed with overnight do the Tony Iverson's Eddie long view of any of these things. I've throw it out as an example, one of the first things to watch is going to be the approval of the colour golf course. Southern Cheboygan county. Do you think Tony Iverson's given five seconds of thought to balancing economic development and tourism against? Local residents who are trying to raise arcane environmental questions. So let's suppose that you know, there's pressure to get this thing approved the left. He's telling them not to do it. Are you dealing with Iverson? You're dealing with the left. He's we're pushing him in this direction. The second part of this should the Republicans try to work with Iverson. The should they tried to obstruct Devers or is there? A happy medium somewhere between I'll cover that. In a moment for three news talk eleven thirty WINS,.
