Here's some of the arguments to be on the lookout for apple's going to argue that competition is and should be among devices not within the os and apple's going to argue that.

Why is it so integral on the phone and not integral on your laptop. Apple's going to point to game consoles like the playstation and the xbox which have a thirty percent commission and don't offer alternate stores and say that's the industry standard.

From Public Defender To Stanley Cup Champion
"So joe for those who might not follow the nhl super closely. Can you just give us a sense of what jon cooper has accomplished during his as a coach in the nhl. Definitely jon cooper is the longest tenured coach shell. He's on an eight th anniversary of his hiring on this week. The winningest coach in franchise history for the lightning. And i think he's highly regarded as one of the better coaches in the league and probably a candidate coach team. Canada at the next olympics are positions and olympics for the trump player so deadly highly regarded coach but up until this past season. He hasn't won the big one and that was kind of the big question surrounding it. And how would you describe his personality. Well he's a players go. She's a really fun personality. Like you quotes wedding crashers. Upper seventy six. No excuses public champion. You uses a champion. The only person you have to answer to when you go home at night is really yourself. The national media loves him because he is a great world this charismatic. You're going to get knocked down. There's no question people are going to push down. Because ultimately they want to see it fail if you think maybe teams on trips to like field of dreams when he was in earlier years coaching. He's all about the different sides and binding guys together on the ice and that if you get is connected as a group and the for each other and very process over outcome kind of guy and so you definitely has that charisma that makes them unique. I think the players like that. We'll show you recently. Wrote about how jon cooper has followed perhaps the most unconventional path of any stanley cup winning coach. So take us back to the late. Nineteen ninety s. What was john. Cooper's lifelike at that time he was living in a condo east lansing area couple remains but he was just trying to figure out where you wanted to be in his life. What he wanted to do for work. He was good ball. Charismatic lawyer but his heart wasn't in it always always wondering when is the fulfillment. When are you going to sit there and wake up every day and say. I can't wait to go do what i'm gonna do. He was defender district court in lansing michigan about a thousand dollars a month. You know we're going for indigent clients. He was working on. du is having divorces. You've got a two person law. Office him in a paralegal. He's still didn't know i guess. Were taken at that point. And you got in touch with the judge. Who worked with jon cooper back. Then what did he say about cooper skills in the courtroom and you just notice and how clients clients listen to prosecutors respected him i think is the kind of ability that transcends coaching the ability to persuade players to adopt your system or just believe the approach. So you know. He's he's a good salesman. He always says convincing players. Convincing a jury and i don't think he knew then that it would be kind of the key to him. Maybe starting coaching career. So how did jon cooper go from being this lowly paid lawyer and a former lacrosse player. Who had only played a year of club hockey in college to being high school hockey coach. Well the run in his son playful lansing catholic high school and they needed a coach and so he knew of john skills on the ice and new of his charisma and then he is asked to one day in the building. I saw the coach. would you be interested. He looks at me and goes. Dc the stack of resumes. I have he says. I'll tell you one thing you coach kids high school hockey team and i will take your resume from here. We put it here. Just this exactly. That was his first kind of foray into coaching hockey. Was nine thousand nine hundred nine hundred thousand lansing catholic cougars hockey team and that was seventeen. You actually talked to some of the players on that lansing catholic team. What did they tell you about jon. Cooper the high school coach. I think what's interesting knees. They remember the first meeting in the cafeteria where he's using himself to like twenty kids and parents and those us have just nervous as they were and are waiting to hear whereas the hockey background. Who did he coach before. Because one of the red wings was he part of this huge talk about law school in wall street and this guy another guys were in the nhl players. Even highly college players inducted himself would be anywhere high in coaching world. A reflection of guys play together. I think they'll be the first ones to tell you. None of them really on the track to make the national hockey league but they were such a joy to be around the competed their butts off just line. Who an awkward gesture. The of funny kid and team talked about like there was a hill just a mile from the school that the workouts outside the big hill. The he must've just saw he was driving around and he made us run up this hill with do bear calls and stuff. That is the source. I've ever been my life like. I could not long like off chris. Monrovia now works the red wings. Illitch family talked about how they had this practice where they had no on the ice and they're doing push ups and sit ups and kristin ross. Who served in the military students in afghanistan he goes. I went through the army for seven years. And i went through a lot of work out a lot of hellish days. Afghans dead. That's one of those days that i think back much. It's not as bad as back. And what else did you learn about his coaching philosophy back. Then you know like what were the things that were important to him that he really emphasized to the team. Making guys feel connected or part of it no matter if you were the best player on this team or like the thirteenth forward and i think jeff swan is appropriate examples. Like i wasn't the most natural coordinated like county out now who put me not aligned with the two players. Mike sack out with the most gifted athlete. That are high school in you. The team is better holding. Some of its part. They wanted them to play. Have have meaning and swan. Storing the biggest fools that season the most for player that year. So you know. He's told everyone the most improved player really halls like a special place for him. Something he takes lightly. It was a really really nice compliment. They talked about the hard hat that they gave out. After every win which was an all white instruction half that was something that the player of the game whether at block shot or a big hit or in ceremony the post game. We'll get this production. How they put their name and a sharpie but it was more of a. What did you do to help the team. Really recognizing layers who maybe didn't shop scores sheep but who are just dedicated themselves to helping the team. These success those are moments that came together that they remember forever and become an integral part of their story on a way to winning out like the championship. Well this sort of ragtag bunch of guys did win an unlikely state regional championship in almost mighty ducks kind of way and joe as you talks to all these guys who played for jon. Cooper what connections. Were you able to make between cooper the coach of the lansing catholic cougars and cooper the coach of the stanley. Cup champion tampa bay. Lightning guesswork me. Talking to guys. That new men who've now that he hasn't changed much in terms of his personality he had kind of style which coach's house you through professional level versus coaching. high school. Kids a lot of the same kind of tenants but he had then he still uses today. Kerry that floss with me all the way through the nhl in onto the honestly. It doesn't really change. Human beings are human beings and everybody needs to be motivated. It's just finding the right way to motivate. Rose stood up in my living room and watch the game and cheer tampa. You're welcome. you're welcome for started. His rise

Let's talk about that census any other Republican operatives die that gave us some some letters and some insight into. No. I mean that's what I'm hoping for. That please, please note that, that is just a Thomas expressing a desire about the state of discovery and is not meant to be called act as an absolutely my wish that some other Republican died of natural causes a milder. You could say that you can causes, I can't control nature yet. There you go. Did you tend to your favors Mr. on goal? But. Since the dawn of time man has yearned to blot out the sun. No. Okay. So on the continuing ongoing efforts by the Trump administration to weaponize census we covered in the last episode on a, a deep dive, but still current events Tuesday, and, and a couple of things that was to eighty six couple things have developed since then. I one of the respondents the New York immigration coalition has as we expected filed a conditional motion to remand the proceedings from the supreme court down to the US district court for the southern district of New York, we talked about the jurisdictional issues on Tuesday, and that the southern district has jurisdiction over the contempt motion. And so very sensibly the, the NYC buying through its council, and it is top notch council here, right multiple first rate law firms Aken Gump and, and the ACLU filed a short brief, it's a good argument. Right. And the and the brief argues there couple of really interesting things in, in the brief right? So the, the first is it quotes from trial? Testimony below that says the census question can be finalized as late, as Tober thirty first of twenty nineteen. That's a new fact. Right. The government has represented Ono. We gotta have it by the end of June. The supreme court has said previously that it would do its ruling by the end of June. But at least in this filing, again this filing was yesterday. So we haven't seen the opposition to it, yet, the NYC quotes from the underlying record that says, no, the government is previously said that, you know, with, with effort, it could participate, you know, it could change the question as late, as Octo ber, thirty one so old thing was, like, well, I mean we put a little effort into it. I guess if things are getting so dire such that we have to put some effort into it. Okay, fine. All right. We can do. No. So that, that. Yeah. Apparently, you know, the, the Trump administration, what's to be able to proceed on the like, you know, look, we, we gotta we gotta we gotta count for casual Fridays, plus its margin birthday in at the end of at the end of June. So, and I who knows, but kind of point one October thirty first twenty one twenty nineteen is the date, that NYC says is the drop dead date. I interpret that as. As follows if the Trump administration gets a victory on or before the end of June. Right. That is in the next two weeks. They will very likely say, oh, sorry, got gotta go to press, if they lose they will continue to hold out, right? We get another new fact. That's like, okay, it looks like if we put in an extra two hours on a Saturday, we can go another four months of. So that's, that's sort of point one. The legal argument is, it's a really good, legal argument. Right. It it's a it's a very narrow one..

Ninety three WIBC this is called true, the vote, I have known about shoot a vote of for years. I have had conversations in my life. With the head of the vote, Catherine Engelbrecht. And this goes back to the days when the IRS was targeting tea party groups, you may not have liked the tea party back part secondary me, I was fine with the, the idea of people getting together engaged in protests without throwing a milkshake without throwing glitter bomb without throwing a punch talking about lower taxes and having a government, that's actually about article on section. Eight yeah. Why anybody be bothered by this yet some people were? And that's the way it goes can't make everybody happy, the IRS so unhappy that they worked aggressively to silence. People organizations would get created. They would apply for some level of, of tax exempt status. And what they were told is we're looking into it. And they would be held in limbo. Four forever. They were not allowed to go out there and work as an organization, because the IRS purposefully worked to keep them from gaining certain taxes status. They purposely worked to damage them. Well, there was a ruling. On this as the story goes by US District court judge. Reggie Walton ruling inflate in favor of true, the vote penalizing the IRS for and I'm quoting from the story unconstitutional discrimination against the group and their unethical behavior in the case. Fantastic. One of the things true. The vote applied for was a request of a recovery of attorney's fees of one point nine million dollars. Remember, part of what government does when they make these kinds of decisions is well, how are you gonna fight them? They've got unlimited dollars because they have your dollars you how are you going to fight them? How are you going to be able to engage the, the legal battle? That's what makes it. So difficult natural makes large government such a problem. So this victory is extremely extremely important. I've reached out I've asked to reach out to Jim bop, bop, law firm.

But you can't be happy about the fact that the IRS was being used as a cudgel against Americans being able to speak out. When you talk about these scandal free Obama era stop this was a scandal. Still is a scandal, you stop people from speaking out. That's a problem, which brings us to an I don't have good audio of it. I would I maybe by today there's good audio of it. There is an actress. Out there. Who is upset that she sees a Trump sign? There's a show called pose. Peo s e. I think it is. And she sees a Trump sign, and she starts stepping on it and starts ripping at it. She's gonna take it away. Well, this guy owns the signs. Give me back my sign. This woman is incredulous this actress, what's India. I think that's is that her name. I n d I y a. I don't know who she is. I don't I don't know the show. I don't know the show pose. Right. So she starts rip trying to take the sign like she's going to somehow like, like it, somehow hers. This guy is like get off my sign. He's wearing a make-america-great-again visor not even the full hat. He's wearing a visor. He's like get off my sign. A guy comes to hurt offense.

Like what do you think you're doing, and he's like, oh, no, no, no, no, no, no my sign. She can't have it. She then goes to rip his hat off of his head and does, so that's when the police show up. This is in New York. I only hope this woman got arrested. I only hope and pray we have talked about this before. We have talked about the fact that people out there think that they are in charge. They think because they believe something they can go out there and just act upon it, by the way, the show pose. Is on FX? And in India, its India, I N D, Y A, more is a is, is trans sate.

"Up the state's energy utilities commission committee, and he joined about sixty utility executives and other paid sponsors at a very Tony resort in Hawaii while the wide wildfires were killing part of California and killing PG knee at the same time. You know, were they worried in California. I mean Hawaii slowdown rate apparently not. I'm agitated then we have the attack on sheriff Mems something else that has infuriated me just infuriated me you could call it a direct attack or an indirect attack by the Fresno bee. And I think they should pay for this. When all the way, I really do. This is just way too much in a bit of overreach. The alleged hate group in this story called fair they've been around for decades, fair the federation for American Immigration Reform. There are about his harmless. You can get and here they've been named as a, you know, a radical group a radical group, you know, eight group, whatever you wanna call them in this story in the Fresno bee the southern poverty Law Center, there the individuals pointing the finger, and they should have been labeled a radical group years ago years ago, and so it's very unfair to call fair an alleged hate group, and then you know, try to. Involve the mayor excuse me, the the sheriff in this at the same time. It's not it's not good. It's not good at all. And the ACLU is definitely involved in this. You know, this used to be the group that upheld the rights for all Americans. And now, they only upon hold the rights of liberals, and progressives, and socialists, and communists. So they should probably change their name to the ACC L P S L, you, you know, and they need to go away permanently until a group emerges that his level Halid level headed and can protect the the liberties and the rights of all Americans in the United States. But this is something that. Should have never been spoken of. I mean, the this. Meaning was the meeting was all about how to cope with the proposition. Excuse me. H A B fifty four I guess it is the state sanctuary law. It's an ugly attack. By the Fresno bee, you know, inflicted upon people to further divide rather. Well, something they're very good at most local papers seek to unite their community, and the beat does the the very best to tear it apart. I guess that gives them something to sell and in one of the weirdest stories have ever heard of the thirty plus years. I've been doing this show. I'll come down shortly. Believe me. The Mongols motorcycle group has been stripped of its federally trademarked logo. Name by a California jury now, this is a move that. I think is illegal and in some regard, you know, regardless of what you think of this motorcycle club. I think this move is somewhat unamerican regardless of what they may. Or may not have done trademarks a federal now, what does a loosely uninformed probably liberal southern California jury have to do with his federal law. Yes. This was US district court. But a jury a jury verdict on something like this involving federal trademarking, wait a minute. You know, like, wait a minute. This is very hard to understand very hard to understand. God only knows how much public money has been spent by the prosecutors who've taken ten years to try and break up this motorcycle group. Ten years. Now, federal judge still has to approve this taking away of the federal trademark, and I'm betting this judge is not going to do it. And I happen to agree with the defense in their story who said this is a novel theory ill conceived action by this jury, and the whole thing the charges itself Lindsey Graham has taken up the gavel in the Senate Judiciary committee, and he's hell bent on importing another conservative to the supreme court this in the light and the persistent absence of Ruth Bader Ginsburg from her duties now she missed a great portion of last week.

"Online at Texas policy dot com. Rob good evening. Jim. Good evening. It's great to be back with you. Indeed. Thank you very much. I let's start with the the ruling that was made at the US district court level declaring that ObamaCare is unconstitutional the basis for that declaration. Absolutely, the judge here got it. Right federal district. Judge read O'Connor faithfully did his job and applying the statute text of the statute to the finding precedent from the supreme court. Jim I represent the individual plaintiffs in this case, this is a case that was filed by Texas led coalition estates and then with Texas public policy pound Dacian, we represent individuals who continue to be harmed by the Affordable Care Act and just to set up how the court ruled you have to go back to the original basis, which the supreme court. I upheld the Affordable Care Act in two thousand twelve. And in the basic structure of the act, and I won't get too far in the wage, the basic structure, the act basic premise of ObamaCare, you remember what is individual mandate in order to fund all the different things that ObamaCare paid for. They were going to require everyone has to hurt this health insurance. And as as was described or arguing this really fundamentally changed the relationship between the individual and the government and so separates from that. You had a different provisions under the Affordable Care Act called the. The the shared responsibility payment, and that said if you did not pay insurance, or if you not if you didn't get insurance on the individual mandate, then you had to pay this shared responsibility payment. Interesting is in two thousand twelve the supreme court agreed that the individual mandate was unconstitutional. The government could not do that. But the way that the kind of legal. Jujitsu pretzel that Roberts crafted I think to avoid that outcome remembers very controversial decision was that he crafted a separate provision in savings analysis Robertson, the liberal members of the court said that you could construe the shared responsibility payment as an exercise of taxing power because it generated revenue federal government in the savings construction. That is how the supreme court allowed itself to avoid the outcome of the fact that it agreed individual mandate was unconstitutional. Joe four to two thousand seventeen in the omnibus reconciliation tax cutting jobs act, Bill congress, set the shared responsibility payment at zero as one of the many types of tax cuts that it passed at the end of last year. We filed suit pointing out the fact the basis with which the supreme court had held it was able to save the Affordable Care Act had now gone away because the shared responsibility payment,.

"And then suggested he sat down with two agents to clear up or Russia question, Mr. McCabe urge Mr Flynn to conduct the interview with no lawyer present to make things easier. The agents including Peter Struck showed up within two hours. They had already decided not to inform Mr Flynn that they had transcripts of his conversations or give him the standard warning against lying to the FBI. They wanted him relaxed an unguarded former director James Comey this weekend bragged on MSNBC that would have never gotten away with such a move in a more organized administration. As Kimberly Strauss or writes, the whole thing stinks of entrapment though. Or though the curious question of how the Flynn defense could be the whole thing stinks of entrapment build a curious question was how the Flynn defense defense team. Got the details. The court filing refers to a McCabe memo written the day of the two thousand seventeen meeting as well as an FBI summary known as eight three zero two of the Flint interview, these were among documents congressional Republicans have been fighting to obtain for more than a year only to be stonewalled by the Justice department. Now, we know why the department didn't want them public. They have come to light. Thanks to a man who knows well how men like Muller and Komi operate. Judge sullivan. He sits on the US district court in the district of Columbia, and he wrote for the journal last year that he got a wakeup. Call in two thousand eight while overseeing the trial of then Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska. Judge Sullivan ultimately assigned a lawyer to investigate the Justice department misconduct at that time in two thousand eight the investigator's report on prosecutors had engaged in deliberate and repeated at the goal violations holding key evidence from the defense. It also criticized the FBI for failing to write up three. Oh, two and for admitting key facts from those it did, right? The head of the FBI at the time, Robert Muller. Judge Sullivan has since made it a practice to begin every case with the Brady order which reminds prosecutors of their constitutional obligation to provide the defense with any exculpatory evidence in December of last year days after being assigned to the Flynn case. Judge Sullivan issued such an order instructing Miller's team to Muller's team excuse me to turn over any evidence in its possession that is favorable to the defendant and material either to the defendant's guilt or punishment. Had any other judge drawn. This case we likely would have never seen the details of the FBI's behavior. It's clear that something has concerned. The judge who likely sees obvious parallels to the Stevens case the media was predicting a quick ruling the Flynn case. Instead judge Sullivan issued new orders on Wednesday demanding to see for himself the mccade memo and the flinty oh three oh two. He has ordered a meeting with the special counsel and ordered them to hand over by Friday, any documents relevant to the plan FBI'd meeting given his history with the FBI. The judge may also have some questions about the curious date of the Flynn three. Oh to August. Twenty second two thousand seventeen some seven months after the interview texts for Mr. struck and testimony from Mr. Komi both suggest that three oh two was written long before them. Was the three zero two edited in the interim if so by whom at at whose direction FBI officials initially testified to congress that the agents did not think mR Flynn had lied. Judges. Have the ability to reject plea deals and require a prosecutor to make a case at trial. The criminal Justice system isn't only about holding defendants accountable trials also provide oversight of investigators and their tactics. And judges are not obliged to a follow. Prosecutors sentencing recommendations, no one knows how judge Sullivan will rule is reputation is being no nonsense a straight shooter and an advocate of government transparency. Whatever the outcome. He's done a favor the nation of favor by using his Brady order to hold prosecutors to some account and to allow the country a glimpse at how federal law enforcement operates, which is the very least the country can expect.

I was looking at this story. I'll just tell you this because I'm trying to get confirmation. I think I have you've probably heard that Stacey Abrams. Who is wanting to be governor on the democrat ticket in Georgia? Has filed a lawsuit and she's filed the lawsuit in US district court for the middle district of Georgia. Guess who sits on that court? A woman by the name of Leslie Abrahams. Her sister. You can't make this stuff up Leslie Abrams is a federal judge for the United States district court for the middle district of Georgia. She was appointed by President Barack Obama and sell. Her sister is gone come on come on. Judge. Interests there, isn't that ridiculous line goes judge shopping to her own sister. And look, here's the thing. You get this story, which we have a link from big league, politics and. So I started doing some, you know, because I'm not going to take everything for granted. So I said, okay is this actually she filed the US district for the middle? The US district court for the middle district of Georgia. Yes. And so I went into the search for who sits on the court, and these Leslie Abrahams. Her sister. What am I told you about media bias now what they tell us what they don't. There's a time magazine report on this. There's mainstream media CNN the rest of them. They never mentioned that her sister sits on the court. That would be a me. Let me ask you this folks if George W. Had filed a lawsuit all just put it now in contemporary terms. If Rick Scott filed a lawsuit. With some court in Florida to try to stop what's going on in Broward County, and you file found out that Jim Scott. Sat on the court. And it was Rick Scott's brother, you not think that would be wall to wall news all over everywhere and his Leslie Abrahams going to recuse herself.

Everybody counts about bad cost too much money today round twenty five thirty billion. But we've got about twenty five to forty million illegals in this country. And we're having to eat our taxpayer dollars to look after them. Oh, I know. Yeah. And over ten year period. I would just about pay for sale. Well, it looked they they've said that we spend more on these anchor babies in a year than it would cost to build a wall. There you go. Yeah. Okay. I didn't realize it was. Well, yeah. It's it's way up there. Oh, yeah. It's a lot of money. And a matter of fact, the president is tweeted about that several times. The you. This thing pays for itself. It pays for itself in a year. Now, of course, you're going to have these anchor babies that are already here there's not much we can do about that. But we can keep more from coming over. And that's just the anchor-baby expense. Not to mention all the other folks are getting on welfare through they come across the border. Bob in Missouri. You would be up next. Hi, bob. Hey, thanks for taking my call. Really like your show. Thank you. Wanted to make a comment on the sanctuary cities. You know as a young man, I joined the navy and as a as a local city official for a small town here. Very the very first thing you do is swearing oath to the constitution defendant uphold it how did these. How do these people get away with? Not not getting in trouble or or having lawsuits brought against him for allowing sanctuary city. I don't it's beyond me somebody needs to find a lawsuit. I mean, if you're if you're the family of a victim of one of these these animals that comes across and kills folks, I would be suing left and right. It just it doesn't make any sense. And it seems so simple to be. But. I think that's been locked common sense has been lost in a lot of people. Tell me about it. Tell me about it. All right, Bob. Thank you. Thank you. Let's go to Steve in North Carolina. Hi, steve. Stay. Yes. Steve. Okay. This date. Oh, dave. Okay. We were close from from Wilmington monkey junction woman. That's not racist.

And you will now from now on. Yeah. But anyway, begin you seek with my information. We'll give that gentleman over there. He'll give you about. Take it over there. And he scans it. I think that's got my information. And then he scans the ballot. And I go do what I have to. And then the machine though. Right. Private so, well, they don't know who will then you're already on the roles. So they know they've just confirming that you are who you are through that mechanism. But they don't know who seek 'cause they don't scan it. They scan before you vote. So once you know, so you're saying though, they can pull it out of the machine and see you you voted for. They know what Balata ahead. You know? That's what I'm seeing that. I don't know. I don't know how they do things in North Carolina. Well, that's what I wanted to. Yeah. I wish I had a better answer day. Thank you. Dave preciado very much, Bob. You would be up next. Hi, bob. Hello alkyl fill this fall from cookeville and good to talk with you again. Good to talk to you. Thank you, sir. Not listen impertinent county for many many years we've had voting machines where you push the button for the candidate you want. And then you finally push the red button to finalize your vote. My sister-in-law won an election for county Commissioner by one vote a few years ago, and there was no recount dated because the machines accurately counted every vote now you have provisionals and you have absentee ballots that come in. I understand that. But what is the problem with these Democrats in Florida? They can't do a simple job like counting votes. We put it on the booth not once but several times, and they can't count a bunch of stupid votes. I've never seen anything like it. You think back to nineteen eighty I'm sorry, excuse me, two thousand Bush versus gore, and they had those butterfly ballots and some guy was walking around with a sign that said Democrats too stupid the vote, and I still remember that and they were complaining that those butterfly ballots were too complicated. For the Democrats developed the right people. So some teacher you might remember this in Georgia took this to her first grade students or second grade, whatever they were and those little children are easily able to figure out how to vote no ballot. But anyway, I just wanted to comment on that. Well, look, maybe we need to have a law too stupid to vote. I don't know. I mean, it's just if I remember the butterfly butterfly ballots. We talked about doing a song parody butterfly ballots anyway, but we never got around to doing it. But yeah, those thing I looked at one of those butterfly ballots, and they try to make complicated mean, it's pretty simple stuff. I mean, you, you know, if you couldn't figure that out of you probably didn't have any business in there. Precisely I did. I'm just shaking my head them, h no, I know, I know it. It's interesting right bump preachy very much. Look the thing about the whole machine. This is one time when we do a recount how could a recount be more accurate than the machines. Somebody explain that to me. If that's the case if the machines are inaccurate than maybe we need to stop using the machines that the machines aren't counting the ballots accurately, and I understand the whole concept here, and it should be an easy thing. But it shouldn't be just. I don't know. I'm trying to look at something. I can use as a prop in here for you. Counting money. How many of you, folks? I just went and got some cash out right from the Bank, and it was a considerable amount of cash. So what what do they do? They counted it. She counted it behind the counter, she's count me let let's just say you get a thousand dollars, right? And if you wanted and twenties or small unmarked bills. But that's beside the point, then they, you know, they counted out behind, and you know, they're pretty fast that counting it. And then what are they do? They just hand it to you. No, what do they do? Then folks, anybody anybody out there in radio land? What do they do? Then they counted again on the counter for you in case, they screwed up. And if there's a discrepancy. And then they take it back behind the counter, and they counted again, and then they put it back up on the counter, and it's a redundancy that they do at the banks and every Bank will do this. When they're counting out cash. The teller counts it all out he or she at her desk or his desk, you know, behind the counter, and then they put it in a nice little pile. And then they bring it back up, and then they count it all out for you. So you can see that. It's the right amount of money. They counted twice. So if they're going through this if with the recount are they just going through? Okay. Ronald going as fast they can. Or are they actually counting it twice in the first recount because sometimes you don't get the same out. And then if you if that's the case, then you count a third time. And then you take the to the match, and that's your that's your count. I just have a hard time believing that the machines are that often as we told you they've done this recount business like twenty six times in recent history. Only three have changed the outcome of an election. I can't imagine that's going to be it's going to be much different. Unless the Repub the Democrats in Broward County, just keep counting until they get the desired result, which is what they were trying to do in two thousand. They I can't remember how many times they can account account again. And then again again, and it gets a little closer gorgets local as well. Let's keep counting and finally Kathryn Harrison's. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. You can't just keep counting until you. Get the desired result, I'm going to certify the election. That's what that whole thing was about the Democrats for years. And some of them are still seeing this that Bush stole the election through the supreme court. How do you steal the election through the supreme court? The supreme court didn't give it to Bush. All they said was that Florida after a reasonable amount of counts has the authority to certifying election. Here's something else to the Georgia race and some others. There's still some house raises races that are still outstanding. And I hear this from the mainstream media will AP hasn't hasn't called that yet. Who the hell's AP AP's, not counting votes? AP is not the one in the AP. You know when it's official when it certified by the state. That's when it's official not when AP says, it's okay..

So so among the many phone in questions was Ted Cruz was, was this comparison to Merrick, garland? I don't know if you've seen this but it. But again, it was straits. I think the level of of dishonesty going on. So cruises question. I took a look at your record compared to garland in the twelve years that you've been on the DC circuit of all of the matters that you in judge garland voted on together. You've Oded together ninety three percent of the time not only that of the twenty eight published opinions that you've authored where chief judge garland was on the panel, chief judge garland, joined twenty seven of the twenty eight opinions you issue. That's ninety six percent and the reverse is true of the thirty opinions that chief judge. Garland has written on a panel. You've joined twenty eight of the thirty ninety three percent. What is your reaction to those data? And then cavenaugh says, well, I think that shows that you know, judge, we're trying to find common ground and you know, judge garland is a great judge. And we're both trying to read the statute is written and we're and we're, you know, not just making up the law and here's what that shows right. Remember that all cases involving administrative proceedings, go to the US district court for the district of Columbia, and then our appealed to the court of appeals for the DC circuit. That's the court upon which Merrick, garland, and Brett Kavanagh sip. You get that one appeal as a matter of, right. So most of these cases are decided on the facts and the standard of review for appealing. Something to an appellate court is a standard of extreme deference on the facts, and then what you have to establish where you get Denault VO review where you can reverse. Is if they've misapplied the law. So unlike the supreme court, the US court of appeals is not a circuit court. They don't get to choose is that they take. They have to take every single case and every single litigant who loses gets the right to appeal up to the US court of appeals. So unlike the supreme court, which handles only tough questions, right? Like that's the definition of what it means to be on the supreme court. The court of appeals handles easy questions. They handle totally straightforward questions that are appealed as of right from the trial court over which regardless of your political beliefs. The rule of law is very, very clear, and remember that court of appeals judges are constrained by vertical precedent in a way that the supreme court is not right. Like if the supreme court has expressly said x. applies here then when you're a circuit court, judge, you must apply that law. And you must apply it whether you agree with it or not. And in many of these cases cavenaugh has written concurrence is saying, well, I got no choice but to apply with up. But boy, I wish I didn't have to so these, that's what these these statistics are as meaningless as the statistics of how often is the ninth circuit overturned right it, it it it absolutely the, the great majority of cases are cases that are not hard questions, not controversial. The fact that there's agreement does not remotely show that there will be that level of agreement between the courts moderate left wing and Brett Cavanaugh when he gets onto the supreme too late, it's it's multiple things like also merit. Garland has kind of centrist. But yeah, my thinking was there's a huge difference between how you're enforcing current laws versus if you. You get to have a hand in changing them, you know, like that doesn't. It doesn't make just because you agree on exactly how to apply, you know, like the laws as written. It doesn't mean you would agree once you get the power to kind of off of these decisions that's gonna change. How laws interpreted. Yes, exactly. Right.

To campaign finance and other charges he made the extraordinary admission that he paid a pornographic actress. At the direction of the candidate that's the phrase that matters is not just, that he paid off stormy, Daniels it's. Not just any payoff Karen McDougal it's that Michael Cohen paid her off at the direction of President Trump to. Secure her silence about an affair she said that she had with Mr. Trump Cohen told the judge. In US district court in Manhattan the payment was quote for the. Principal purpose of influencing the election so he's handing the federal prosecutors exactly what they would be seeking to discover he's openly stating now that the president, was trying to influence the election and he would know since he was the personal attorney who. Was involved in all of this cone also pled guilty to multiple, counts of tax Evasion and Bank fraud bringing to a close a. Month long investigation by Manhattan federal prosecutors who. Examined his personal business dealings, and his role in helping to arrange financial deals with women connected to President Trump Cohen entered the courtroom at the US district court in Manhattan about four PM nodded his head it reporters and he smiled the plea agreement does not call for Colin to cooperate with federal prosecutors it. Does not preclude him from providing information to Robert Muller but that seems like a secondary concern. At this point to guilty plea already puts the president directly in the crosshairs, once you have Michael Cohen, acknowledging the. Charges against him and saying he was directed to by late campaign law at the direction of a candidate he. Is now the chief witness against the president now the real problem here is that a lot of. Folks today San case why doesn't Trump just pardoned him and president. Has the pardon power why doesn't? President Trump just turn around and pardon Michael Kahn let him off the hook criminally and then he doesn't have to, worry about it only one problem if that happens then Michael can no longer plead the fifth. The fifth amendment prevents you from from self incrimination But if you cannot be tried for a crime then you can no longer plead the fifth so then Michael Colin could, be compelled to testify against President Trump on all of these matters it's, serious serious aids, seriously will, situation for the president he could again be subpoenaed you could see him sitting in front. Of the FBI having to testify that lawyers worst nightmare because, the president has an unfortunate tendency to overstate his case a lot and to speak loosely into that in front of. Lawyers you're gonna find yourself, facing a perjury charge even a very careful lawyer like Bill Clinton was caught up in a perjury charge once he. Was sitting in front of Ken Starr and the. And, the independent counsel it's it's underestimate the level of danger that, the President, Trump is in right now would be foolish particularly if in two? Thousand eighteen the Democrats take back the congress so? The question is whether Trump would go to jail for something like this you know he'd have. To be tried presumably you'd have, a criminal trial of a sitting president which, could be insane beyond that presumably you'd have to The president pardoned. Himself maybe I mean it's. Unclear from the the constitution whether he could pardon, himself and get off that way but then. You raise the question is to what happens if Democrats take over the house and suddenly they. Have majority. To impeach the president over all of this. This would be the grounds. For impeachment is the violation of campaign finance law now a lot of folks today are going to say not completely on justifiably that Democrats have gotten away with campaign finance violations before and you might see some folks sites.
