35 Burst results for "United States Senate"
The Selfishness of Rob Portman
"All right, we do continue now. 34 minutes past the hour bob brand sitting in for Dennis here in Cleveland, Ohio. I want to trash my senator for a moment. 'cause he deserves it. Rob Portman is everything that's wrong with his bill, rob Portman is everything that's wrong with the attack on the First Amendment. Rob Portman is everything that's wrong with the United States Senate as a whole, I think. Anybody who makes a pledge and a promise to constituents in return for their votes. Anybody who says he believes in traditional marriage between one man and one woman. Anybody who says I will govern and I will make votes in the United States Senate along those beliefs. Who then turns around and flips it upside down 180° because his kid tells him he's gay. If someone that has no business being in government, thankfully rob Portman is on his way out of government. He chose not to run for reelection, JD Vance is going to be our next senator in his seat. And I look forward to much, much better from JD Vance and I got from rob Portman. Rob Portman proved to be selfish. He put his families, concern above that of the constitution, and while I understand that as a father, I do. He didn't take an oath to his son, he took an oath to uphold the constitution. And the constitution includes the Bill of Rights, it includes the First Amendment that are going to be shredded.
Sen. Mike Lee: RFMA Did Not Adopt Amendment for Religious Protections
"And I drafted an amendment of prohibiting that saying that you know this bill can't be allowed to pass unless it has this religious protection built into it Tragically today the United States Senate passed legislation that codified operator but did not adopt my amendment for any comparable amendment Providing that protection to religious nonprofits and other religious institutions and individuals So sad day really because as you point out we're in a lame duck session of Congress a Republican House has just been elected and is about to kick in in a few weeks They waited just a little bit longer Add shoot Have there not been 12 Republicans Have there been fewer than ten Republicans willing to vote with the Democrats on this issue Fewer than ten well this couldn't have been done until at least the next Congress And the next Congress if it got done it would be done much more respectfully if religious freedom Moreover I think even in this Congress they might well have been able to adopt this thing have these 12 Republicans not made it so darn easy So the Democrats to pass it without the religious protection They had other language in there that provided some religious protection but not for the problem I'm describing It was far inadequate for that They passed it anyway And I think that's really sad
Sen. Chris Murphy: Cut Funding for Police Not Enforcing Gun Laws
"Democrat Chris Murphy. This Connecticut Democrat, once these guys bang this drum all the time, here he was over the weekend after these terrible shootings in Colorado Springs, and if the Walmart, here was Chris Murphy, poster boy. For anti Second Amendment, anti constitutional rights for law abiding American citizens. You don't think they're coming for your guns? Think again. The majority of counties in this country have declared that they are not going to enforce state and federal gun laws. They have decided that they are going to essentially refuse to implement laws that are on the books. That is a growing problem in this country. And I think we're going to have to have a conversation about that in the United States Senate. Do we want to continue to supply funding to law enforcement in counties that refuse to implement state and federal gun laws? Red flag laws are wildly popular, right? You just temporarily take guns away from people. So you want to withhold money for law enforcement? I think we have to have a conversation about whether we can continue to fund law enforcement in states where they are refusing to implement these gun laws. Nuts. These people are back crap crazy.
Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker Will Have a Runoff in Georgia
"Again, an interesting perspective we'll talk about, let's just go ahead and talk about Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock right now. Is it important if you're a Georgia listener to this podcast in particular for you to go out and vote a Republican to go out and vote? Yes. I know that it's not for the control of the Senate anymore. I know it's not what we had hoped it to be, but it still matters. 51 senators from the Democratic Party in the United States Senate then can control committees. And then they can make sure that they get out whatever they want to get out of committee. Now, granted, we do have the house now to stop some of this. But that's an important thing, especially when it comes to judges that the Biden administration is going to try and pack through here the next two years. Keeping that 50 50 means that it has to come to the floor. And then it's just, it makes it a lot harder to get those judges out. And it means Democrats are put in more pressure. Especially on judges that are on the fringe of being appointments. So the 51 50 matters, you either going to have a power sharing agreement or you're going to have complete control by the Democrats. So Republicans in Georgia, if you want to say Republicans maintain at least a power sharing agreement in the United States Senate, you need to get out and vote for walker. Walker experienced a 200,000 less votes than governor Kemp and other members of the Republican statewide tickets which, by the way, this idea that Georgia had flipped in Georgia was a purple state in Georgia and it didn't happen. In fact, if it wasn't for the walker race, it was a complete beatdown in Georgia by Republicans led by the governor Brian Kemp and others on the democratic candidates up and down the line. And it's just amazing to me that the very little that is being reported about this. I mean, there were AJC reporters. And rightfully so, wrote books about how Georgia had flipped. Will it flip in one election for very different rains mainly the fact that Republicans just did not show back up to the polls in a runoff last year,
Kash Patel Is One of the True Fighters
"Cash Patel. What a perfect guest. Welcome back to America first, my friend. Savage is so great to be with you and I couldn't think of a better show to be doing right now on this Wednesday morning. Well, Wednesday morning. Is it Wednesday morning? It's afternoon. It may feel like morning to you. I know you're out west. I'm in the west. You're out west. So this is a perfect perfect segue. My gosh, we rehearsed this so much. Can you tell? Why weren't you with us at Mar-a-Lago eating the coconut shrimp and they little dogs in blankets with president Trump? Because you were a man on a mission. Where were you last night, cash? That was the plan. I was supposed to be there and I was with the president in Ohio for the last rally. And then being a Nevada and being having hammered out west out here for Arizona, Nevada. I got sent out here to be with Adam laxalt to bring this thing home on the frontier. And it looks like we're going to do that because I have campaigned for Adam as if so many of you guys, and I've said from the beginning, Adam will be the 51st senator for the United States Senate, this campaign cycle. And Adam is on the verge of victory, and there was no way we were going to let that one slip through our hands so we're helping him. We're helping carry next door, ahamada is looking great. I'm looking great. Lombardo's going to win the gubernatorial race. We're going to flip Nevada red. People need to understand how important that is. It was a blue state. It is about to become a red state again. All right, so I'm really excited and God bless you for actually being out in the fight instead of hanging out with us losers who are just celebrating celebrating. I felt so guilty this morning because I posted a tweet of my wife and I a picture of us and I said this is my warrior queen because yesterday morning she got up at 3 a.m. and came home at 9 45 p.m. because she was a senior election official doing her part to try and make sure that we have clean and fair and transparent elections. And I was having cigars at Mar-a-Lago. All right, so thank you for what you did yesterday. Thank you for what you've been doing for the last 20, 25 years, because you are one of the true fighters.
The Quality of Candidates Matter, Despite Trump Endorsements
"Of candidates actually matters. If we talked about Doctor Oz, and the fact of the matter is, that the good people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania decided they would be better off with a brain damaged man who has a Bologna role on the back of his neck. He's the better choice than Doctor Oz. That's on the that's on the people of Pennsylvania. But let's get real for a second. How many times on this radio program did we tell you that Doctor Oz was not a good candidate? Yes, he got the Trump endorsement. But just because you get the gold seal of approval from Donald John Trump does not make you a good candidate. And Doctor Oz was a lousy candidate. We all knew he was a liberal. We all knew he was pro abortion that he wanted gun control that he was in support of these mutilation surgeries for kids. We all knew that. And then for the guy to turn around and to say that all of a sudden, he's had some sort of a transformation in his life. Come on. We're not stupid. But there you go. It was a bad candidate. We had a choice of good conservatives. Look at Herschel Walker, Herschel may very well pull out. I don't know the wind there. The Secretary of State and Georgia now announcing it looks like that race is going to a run off. That race could end up once again, Georgia, you folks in Georgia could end up once again deciding the balance in the United States Senate. So I'm
Kevin 'Votestradamus' McCullough on the PA Midterm Races
"Let's talk about some of these campaigns. Which ones must Rihanna, we've been talking about him a lot. And again, I hope he's going to get on the program today. But for him to win, we would kind of take a miracle, but I believe in miracles, I believe it's possible for the people of Pennsylvania to come to their senses. It looks good for Doctor Oz. What are some of the other races? Pennsylvania is a tough lift on both races. And I don't know why it is, to be honest with you, Eric, because corruption and Philip fetterman is an absolute vegetable. And it's not his own fault. He had a stroke, but he wasn't taking his meds. There were things he did that caused the situation that he has. But you can not send someone who's incapacitated to represent your state in the United States Senate. You have done it before. Well, I'm just saying, no normal, rational voter can look at that and go, okay, this is the guy that looks like he's up to the job. He's not. I couldn't hire him to wash dishes for me. Like, I don't know that I could trust him to go do what we need him to do in the Senate. Having said that. From looking at him that he's a cannibal, well, and we repent in Canada. We've got I know you've got a break coming up, but I want what I want to say is Pennsylvania's difficult because Oz is not leading to the degree that mastriano would be helped in mastriano's not leading. So you don't have one of the, if anything, it's going to be the Trump surge helping both of them kind of get across the finish line.
Doug Weighs in on the Pennsylvania Senate Race
"Have said on the podcast, I've said other interviews that I've done that I wish John federman the best and getting better. I do not wish John fetterman to be in the United States Senate getting trying to get better. We need people who are not conservative. Number one, but also able to do the job from day one. And that's Doctor Oz would be able to do the job. Whereas veteran, frankly, the so many questions were left open the other night in the fact that it could be simply do the job. You're not going to have closed captioning everywhere you go. You're going to have to start having to be able to process that. Is that something that in years to come, he can get better with? Sure. But right now, it's not. This is an important seat. It is still very much up in the air and it's mainly an importantly because this would be a Republican hold. We do not for conservatives do not need to lose this seat because if they do, then they have to win two others to make sure that the Republicans gain control of the United States Senate. Now, we've looked at that saying Arizona and Nevada and probably Georgia are pickup seats that look like the Republicans can and will take. But you never want to leave that margin as close as it can be. You would always good to have a couple of seat margin as you go forward. So look, I'm going to talk a little bit more about debates as we go, but this federman performance the other night was awful. And if you don't believe it, just listen, all you have to do is over the past week, you can listen to what has been said by the liberal media from the view to others. And even Joe Scarborough come out and said, you know, he struggling that this was a problem.
Arizona AG Nominee Abe Hamadeh Talks About Growing GOP Momentum
"A very important race happening. In Arizona, Kerry Lake is looking really good. Another poll showed her up 11, but we can not stop. I'm telling you, Carrie Lake, such an important candidate, and she is carrying the entire Republican ticket, and I don't think our I think our next guest will agree with that sentiment. I don't think he'll find that an insult or offensive at all. In fact, I think they're welcoming this kind of energy and this kind of enthusiasm. And joining us now is the next attorney general for the great state of Arizona, Abe, amade, we need everyone in Arizona to vote all the way through the ticket, including for attorney general, Abe, welcome back to the program. Thanks for having me on Charli. Abe, how's your race going? What are you hearing on the ground? It's going great, Charlie. And as you said, Carrie Lake masters all of us right now are working together because we all have that America first new Republican Party movement going on and everywhere we're going are promoting one another and you know the rest of the countries watching what we're doing right here in Arizona because it's quite unusual, too often they consultants and the political class, they run your own race, right? But here we all recognize we need each other. We need Blake masters. The United States Senate in order to secure our border. I need carrier because our next governor to declare an invasion at our southern border. So we all need each other right now. And I feel the momentum and the energy. People are exhausted. They're sick and tired of the lies by the media. And by the Democrats, every single place Democrats have taken power, they've turned our cities and states into misery and chaos. So November 8th will be their day of reckoning, Charlie.
How John Fetterman's Debate Performance Hurt the Democrats
"Senator from Florida chairman of the national Republican senatorial committee is here to run down the races for us and senator Scott. Let me begin by applauding you. You patiently plotted through a withering barrage of consultant criticism because if you weren't using them during the summer and now the Republicans are set to regain the majority in the United States Senate and it's because of your leadership. So thank you. You've done a great job. Are you very nice, but we've got great candidates. They run great races. You look at their debate. All of them have done a great job in their debates. And Biden's not gotten any better. And the democratic candidates have to defend the Biden policies, and they're not defensible. Let me begin by saying, I'm going to put in the win column. Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, and which content. I'm going to talk to senator Johnson a little bit. We all saw last night's meltdown by John fetterman. JD was on yesterday. He's winning comfortably in North Carolina, Ted bud's winning comfortably. Question about that. Do you believe that John fetterman's performance last night hurt Democrats everywhere? Because I do. Oh, absolutely. I think this is what they've done. They've come across as radical candidates. They've come across as half of the tribe. They can't defend Biden's policies. They try to change their policies and act like they're somehow bipartisan, middle of the road, things like that. And if everyone's just actually the least example, I mean, he took it chase the position on fracking change his position abortion changes position on crime, changes position on basically everything they ask. And so I think that's what people see it. And that one was a significant national people a lot of people watch that. And what they're seeing is a Democrat. I mean, they don't have a, they don't have, they don't have anything. There's nothing that they can brag about. I
The Establishment Is Trying to Take Out Sen. Mike Lee
"Something rather diabolical from my perspective has been occurring in the great state of Utah But it's an overwhelmingly Republican and conservative state And that is the establishment in that state The political establishment and the media establishment have gotten together if not overtly covertly To try and take out Mike Lee Now why would they want to take on Mike Lee Because Mike Lee just happens to be if not the most articulate One of the most articulate constitutional conservatives in the United States Senate And they figure if they can take out Mike lean now While the left and the Democrats are destroying our country there's some hope And they want to use this as an example for the next election cycle To take out conservatives as well So what are they doing essentially They're trying to confound and confuse the electorate The Democrat party is backing a candidate who claims not to be a Democrat Claims to be an independent Before he was an independent he was anti Trump Republican Before that he was just a government bureaucrat The never trumpers have rallied around him The Democrat party has rallied around him The media have rallied around him Because they want to take out one of the best senators I've ever known Mike Lee
John Fetterman Uses Closed Captioning Technology in Debate
"Breaking news, Jon fetterman says that he is going to use a closed captioning device and tomorrow's debate against Doctor Oz. I really hope Doctor Oz goes after fetterman. Here's what Oz has to say in the debate. Mister fetterman, I'm a doctor. And I've saved people's lives. And I took an oath, Hippocratic oath to protect and preserve all human life. All human life matters to me. And I have compassion for you and I care for you, but if I was your doctor, I would not let you serve in the United States Senate, let alone go and run for office. And not only are you not healthy, not only are you to have the mental capacity of senator, your views are insane. You want to let one third of people out of prison, you want to legalize all drugs and also you're a spoiled rich kid who has never worked an honest day in your life who poses as some sort of tough guy with tattoos and a sweatshirt wearing shorts all the time. You've tried to appropriate the culture of middle Pennsylvania when in reality you are no different than a Shrek lookalike Leonardo DiCaprio moral equivalent of play acting a Pennsylvania steel worker, not actually ever doing something with your hands in your life. You're not a member of the muscular class. You're an entitled brat who has been subsidized by your parents to your mid 40s who doesn't actually have the mental acuity to be a U.S. senator.
Blake Masters: Mark Kelly Enables Joe Biden's Agenda
"I mean if people really do want to make a change in reverse course and send a message to Biden and the Democrats they have to vote for you and oppose this guy because this guy is one of their is one of their foot soldiers and we see them all over the country These are Democrats in the United States Senate He hasn't fought to close the border He hasn't fought against the high rise in crime He hasn't fought against illegal immigration He hasn't fought so that you have more fuel in Arizona Didn't done any of these things I assume that the people of Arizona want a fighter who agrees with them And that's your point right And tell me where you disagree with this guy Well I disagree with Mark Kelly on so much I mean he is just enabling Biden's agenda Like just look at the economy And it's like man are they are they just really incompetent Or is what we're seeing worse than incompetence right That's an interesting parlor game to play but it's like what do these geniuses think was going to happen Mark when they destroyed our energy independence Do you declare war on fossil fuels War on oil and gas in a country that's still mostly powered by oil and gas Gosh do you think that might make the price of energy shoot up And it did they took gasoline from $2 to $6 Now they want a metal because in Maricopa County it's back down in the 5s mainly because Biden is selling out oil from our strategic petroleum reserve compromising national security in a desperate bid to suppress gas prices before the midterms So they surrendered our energy independence They made energy too expensive That causes inflation in the economy And then they printed and spent $6 trillion Obviously that was going to cause some inflation So they're responsible for this We don't have to wonder where it came from It came from the Biden White House and Mark Kelly no matter what he says now he voted for all of these policies that are making Arizona family's suffer

"Left and the putrid swamp, you're listening to the Dan bongino show. Here he is, Dan bongino. All right, we've had around before and she was a huge hit you all love there. We're trying to put candidates on the show. We're a little heavy on candidates over the next 20 days Obviously because it's a critical election. It's the most important one of your lifetime until the next one. No, I mean it. It's that critical, and then the next one will be just as critical. Let's welcome back to the show. Kelly, Chewbacca, running in Alaska for the United States Senate, the only conservative on the ballot. How are you? Welcome back. I'm fantastic. Thank you so much for having me. It's always great to be with you. Oh gosh, come on. It's a pleasure. We've really followed your campaign and enjoyed it from the start. I'm so glad you're taking on Democrat, Lisa Murkowski. I get it. She runs as a report. I know the whole routine. She's not, so, you know, I'm not even entertaining any of that stuff. The woman is to the left of Lenin. How does it look up there in that race in Alaska? Because there's a problem we have, Kelly, you need to win this seat. You're the only conservative in the race. Because she is really effectively a Democrat with the things that matter. Especially judicial nominations and things like that. So what I could see happening, Kelly, is sadly we could get to a 51 49 majority and then what would happen if Lisa Murkowski gets reelected is the entire nation's fate would be in the hand of a Republican who's really a Democrat. That's why we need you to win when you agree. You better say that. They're absolutely right. That's functionally what happens now is oftentimes she just saves Kamala the lockdown Pennsylvania avenue and gives the tie breaking vote over to Joe Biden. She does the bidding of Joe Biden about 80% of the time, your ratio is functionally Democrat. That's why the Alaska Republican Party censured her and removed her from membership that she is not allowed to run as a Republican, but she and her campaign steam, campaign team re-engineered the election rules in Alaska. And changed how we do elections so that you can call yourself whatever you want on our ballot. They got rid of party primaries. And for that reason, Murkowski and I are actually in the final election together right after our primary, all the polls were saying the same thing. It's a 50 50 tie, but I'm excited to let you know that now polls are saying that I have a 5 to 7 point lead over her even 5 38 is reporting that it looks like I'm going to win with a 53%. That's a pretty consistent the last couple of weeks. I know it's exciting. So yeah, I'm out here knocking thousands of doors me and my husband and the kids. That's a grassroots movement in Alaska, 2500 votes is 1%. This is the closest Senate race and the least expensive Senate race in the nation. If the audience wants to help out, I'm at Kelly four AK dot com. We can buy a lot of ads for a little bit of money to help move the people in the middle to come over to our side to vote. And that's how we'll win. Kelly, for AK dot com, folks, I'm going to do this for Kelly because I ran for office and I can tell you, and I think Kelly you'd agree. The single worst experience running for office, I enjoyed it. I had a lot of fun. I'm not going to tell you some kind of pity soft service fun. I enjoy talking to people, but the worst part is asking people for money. It's horrible. You just, your mom and dad tell you growing up, don't brag about yourself and don't ask people for money. And that's what politics is. So I'm going to do her favorite Kelly for 8 K dot com. Folks, we got a few bucks. 5 bucks. The $1, $10, $20, whatever it may be. This is a really pivotal race. I'm not kidding. We could win a 51 50 majority, get Lisa Murkowski in there in Alaska. And she is effectively a Democrat. It's useless. So this is a consider this a suite that would a seat that would swing in our direction. Kelly, one of the things that you'd be really important for the listeners who may say, well, what do I care about in Alaska's Senate seat? You might listen as a smart. They don't say that kind of stuff. But if they were, Alaska is floating on a sea of oil and gas. Now, Joe Biden and the administration has been terrible. Terrible at allowing Alaska to develop its sea of natural resources. He gave a speech today saying he's doing everything in his power to make sure that states like yours and you hear laughing already. It's hilarious. I'm actually stopping Alaska from helping the country out with our oil and gas. Joe Biden targeted Alaska for shutdown on day one. In fact, his administration has leveled 26 direct executive actions at Alaska to shut down our state. And it's been through these radical environmentalist nominees that senator Murkowski has put in office. Sometimes with tie breaking votes. And so this affects all of America, energy policy used to be a political thing. Now it's a personal thing. I didn't get political to last year. We're all feeling it. We have alaskans who can't pay for gas and groceries. And that's most of us. So how are we living up here? We're living off of the cans and the game and the fish that we caught and killed. That's it. If canned food and it's game in its fish, that's how alaskans are living. I don't think any state in the nation is suffering as much as our state is. Though it's funny to laugh at Joe Biden when he says stupid stuff like that, but in Alaska, we're crying and we're hurting. That's the reality of every Alaskan up here. And it's not just oil and gas. Let me tell you what our state does for the United States of America. We have enough oil and gas to fuel the United States of America. It's our critical minerals that can create the United States of America. It's our timber that builds the United States of America, our affordable housing that's being affected because we're not allowed to touch a single piece of wood up here. It's our fish that feeds the United States of America every fish on your menu. Almost all of it comes from Alaska waters. And it's our national security position that can protect and defend the United States of America, and it's obviously our tourism that inspires the United States of America, but we can't do any of that. If we don't have leadership in the center of the United States in Washington, D.C. that won't be bought and bullied by the D.C. establishment insiders. And that's what's happening right now. Alaska is the foundation for this country. And that's why they're targeting us for shutdown because you don't have America first leadership in the middle of the nation. Yeah, we're talking to Kelly Chewbacca. She's running for Senate in the state of Alaska. Against a Republican who's really a Democrat, Lisa Murkowski, the website is Kelly for AK, dot com. Kelly, they instituted a ridiculous system of ranked choice voting in Alaska, which has everybody furious. For our listeners
Masters Closing Gap With Kelly in Senate Race
"Well, Blake, I know that your opponent who apparently was an astronaut. I may have heard that once or twice. Mark Kelly, is besides being a 96% of the time Joe Biden supporting a senator. He also had some like what was it $80 million to use against you? That's right. Well, they've spent 80 million already. As best we can tell about 30 million of that has just been attacking me lying about me trying to vilify me. The other 50 million apparently is just going to prop him up and lie about his record. You know, this guy votes just like Bernie Sanders in the United States Senate to the left of Bernie, actually. But then come election time, red campaign Kelly. He campaigns as a moderate. He's an independent, always pretending to be John McCain up there. You know, he's a rubber stamp for Joe Biden's agenda, and the only chance that Democrats have to even come close to winning this election is just to lie. They've got a lot of money to do it. I just don't think it will work out for her. Well,

"Put in their paper. You get it, folks. All about Ukraine now. You have anything to say about Ukraine. That isn't a full throated ass kissing like sycophantic support of hundreds of billions of dollars in military aid to Ukraine. Anything. And you're definitely a Putin stooge you need to be banned. As a matter of fact, you need to ban Elon Musk too. For even allowing you to say it. This is the totalitarian future we live in. You know it's ironic, right? Think about it, Jim. I mean, the leftists, who, when we got into the Iraq War, which by the way, I always thought it was a bad idea. If you doubt that, you can go watch some of the videos of me running for office back in 2012 for the United States Senate when it still was relatively popular as a Republican to have supported the Bush administration's Iraq War. It was losing steam, but it was still you were still considered the mainstream. I wasn't. I'm looking for a pad on the back. I just want to let you know, I'm not a BSR and I've been consistent the entire time. Unlike leftist. I believe the Iraq War was a bad idea. I thought the pretense to get in there was shaky. And I was a Republican saying it caused me a few headaches at the time, but I stood by my principles. What's weird, Jim? Is it the left use this as a vehicle to entirely discredit and attack president Bush that they lied? Meanwhile, people like me and not me, some leftists were the ones speaking out, ah, the yellow cake thing. WMD in Iraq. I'm not really sure that sounds kind of shaky. And the left was like, journalistic freedom, bro, look, bush is a bush is a liar. Now it's really weird. You've got the same thing now. Public pressure to support continued involvement in this Ukrainian war. Public pressure to do it. If you say anything, anything that isn't adamantly prose zelensky to the point of like sycophantic if that's even a word. You are definitely a Putin stooge. It's the exact same thing. If you spoke out against the Iraq War early on the shaky premise of WMD, what were you consider? Remember this show? Are you definitely at the American? But it's weird. It's weird. That was some people on the right calling the left anti American for questioning. Now that the script and that happened, by the way, we should ignore that. The script is now totally flipped. Elon Musk is going to take over Twitter, this guy in The Washington Post is worried that if Elon Musk takes over Twitter that is sycophantic support for Ukraine may break. In other words, here's what they're really worried about fellas and ladies. There really worried that people will have an opinion on Ukraine. They don't like. All right, I got a lot more to get to it's Friday. So let me move on. We really do have a loaded show, but if you listen to my podcast this morning, you'll see it ran a little late because I was committed to getting through the entire rundown. I never do that, but all the stories are good. So let's just motor along. We get to this January 6th. Committee fired up again yesterday. What a convenient date to fire back up. You know what's so strange? This is Jim again, this is one of those moments, man. Like, super weird, bro so there was an inflation number scheduled to come out yesterday. And everybody knew it was going to be a bad one. The only question is how bad, right? And it's so weird, too. We have an election coming up in three weeks, right? And the January 6th committee, like seemingly out of the blue is like, oh my gosh, we should have another hearing on the same day a bad inflation number comes out. And by the way, three weeks and a couple days until an election. Jim, isn't that weird that Jim's sake has had he's like, he's Jim and we're all kind of losing a little bit of hair.

"Recently from certainly the White House press secretary, even referring to that with all the back room drama surrounding infrastructure. That was the story today, every reporter in the briefing room. Asking about decoupling to the president mean it when he said it. What does this mean now for infrastructure? What about Reconciliation after the president Issued his clarifying statements over the weekend. Press secretary Jen Psaki interested today in making this about process. I know that we're quite focused sometimes on process in here. I understand that the process of a bill becoming a lot is important, but the president intends to sign both pieces of legislation. Into law, Okay? I need to rewrite Schoolhouse rock here. What about Nancy Pelosi? This was the speaker of the House. As you heard here on Bloomberg Radio on Thursday. There ain't going to be Infrastructure bill unless we have the reconciliation bill passed by the United States Senate We're joined now by the panel. Bloomberg Politics contributor Jeannie she and Zeno and today we're also joined by John Civilities, geopolitical strategist, Trilogy Advisors and diplomacy consultant for the State Department. It is great to have both of you with us and John. Welcome to the mix. I can ask you about this whole Process here is that good strategy for the White House. Make it about process say, you guys are focused on all the wrong stuff here. We're doing great things for the American people. Just check back in a couple of minutes. Well, First of all, I think what we have here now is a colossal crisis of mistrust in Washington, D C. I think the Republicans that cut to deal with the president last week feel that they were betrayed. I think the larger Republican caucus feels that it was a waste of time meeting with the president. If there's going to be this demand that there's going to be two pieces of legislation because all that means for the Republicans is that the president gets their buy in on what everyone agrees is basic infrastructure necessity for the United States. And then they can go ahead and pass some multi trillion dollar families planning a series of other non physical infrastructure measures and get everything they wanted without ever having to make to make a serious concession to the Republicans. So that's the trust problem in Washington, but I think also nationally, Joe Think the Biden administration is facing a huge risk here because I think that really hasn't been a debate about what constitutes infrastructure and the White House and the Senate and House Democrats seem to have expanded the definition of infrastructure to things that No one really considered to be infrastructure before 2021 like elder care and workforce development, and the like. And so I think most Americans really don't see eye to eye with Democrats on this debate right now. It's going to be very interesting public engagement by Democrats and Republicans of the American people in the weeks ahead. Jeannie. She and say, no, Let's talk about trust for a minute. Happy Monday. By the way, President Biden Nancy Pelosi. How much trust will there be? After everything that happened over the weekend. It's pretty hard to find any sunlight inside those comments from Nancy Pelosi. It's good to talk to you, Joe. You know, as you and everybody in Washington is using this word, decoupling. It is fascinating to me because, you know, to my mind. This was really an unforced error made by Joe Biden when he got out ahead of himself, you know a little bit. It reminded me of George W. Bush with Mission accomplished. You never claimed mission accomplished when you're not done, and I know he wants to say he did. Did something we all thought he couldn't do I among them is he got a bipartisan agreement. But the fact is, it was an agreement. It is fraught with problems. You've got to push the ball through the end zone or whatever that sport analogy is. Don't ask me but you've got to get it through before you celebrate it, And I think that was the error he made. They tried to walk it back this weekend. I thought Mitt Romney, Rob Portman, other Republicans accepted that, you know, decoupling if you will, um, you know, sort of elegantly over the weekend, but we've got to see what happens as we go forward. But I do think this was Joe Biden getting out ahead of himself, which, on the one hand, Joe Biden likes to talk, so that's not surprising. On the other hand, he is a master legislator, so the fact that he allowed himself to get out ahead. With his, you know, comments on the tarmac The early last week, as you talked about them was really quite an error and they knew they made it And they tried to force it back now not making a lot of friends here. The other big item that was in the air in the White House briefing room today, something I want to ask you both about that was The administration's defense of airstrikes, airstrikes on Iran backed militias in Iraq and Syria. The secretary of State's Antony Blinken in Rome today says it sends a clear and unambiguous deterrent message. Saying that I hope very much it is received by those who are intended to receive it. John, You've spent a lot of time in geopolitics. What is the White house getting into here? Is this the beginning of something? I don't think it's the beginning of anything, Joe. I would think, if anything, it's a continuation of sound. U S policy of forward defence, especially because there have been 44 0 attacks. By Iranian proxies in Iraq against American forces and I am against American assets in this year alone, you know, we still have 2500 troops in Iraq battling against the Islamic state. And so the Iranians feel that they can attack the US with impunity, and one might say that these strikes against the Iranian proxies are overdue and hopefully we'll send a very strong message back to the Iranians that Their attacks on U. S forces in U. S assets will be met with force and also to send a very strong signal to Tehran so that they don't have the misimpression that they're dealing with a weak administration in the context of the Jcpoa nuclear development nuclear weapons agreement. Well, that's where I was going to go with you. Jeannie. Does this make it more difficult? To have the US back in the Iran nuclear deal. I don't think so. Actually, I think that the Biden administration, I think Anthony Blinken have tried to be very cautious in terms of their response, and I think we saw that, although he's getting criticism from the progressive left on that, so he's got to be careful there as well..

Here are some of his arguments. He begins by saying the Senate has no power to bring this case. Senate doesn't have jurisdiction over private citizen in an impeachment because the Constitution says that Only remedy for impeaching A person is removal from office. And if that's the only remedy and President Trump no longer holds office that The entire proceeding is illegal melody because it can't happen it Zoe, almost the equivalent of the president, having died. They can't remove him from office because he simply is unable to be removed because he's not there on then there are various other arguments that address Um, the matter in which the house acted and then some of the merits of the accusations concerning incitement to insurrection being ah, contrary to law and essentially the rush to judgment in the lack of due process and these air really great concepts on and the president has a wonderful opportunity to defend himself here and I'm delighted to be part of active that team that Z doing it not only because I think it's my patriotic duty when I'm asked, but Because I think the country really needs to see what's going on The single article of impeachment charges the former president with inciting the deadly January 6 attack on the Capitol with Democratic House impeachment managers, saying former president Trump pointed a mob like a loaded cannon at the Capitol.

"So the day began with evidence that the Democrats have taken control of the Senate as a result of the runoff races in Georgia. I'm curious to get your take on the conversation, particularly now in light of The events in Washington. What's the conversation within the Republican Party among top level leaders? I think one of the things that's happening right now is a scramble for leadership. There's an incredible power vacuum. I mean, one of the things that you've been able to count upon whether you liked it or not. Was Mitch McConnell, the majority leader of the United States, Senate had a firm control over the legislative agenda. The Republicans in the Senate on Dhere was particularly skilled at the management of his power. You don't always have to agree with what he did with it. But you have to agree that there was no more skillful leader with the execution of power than Mitch, Mitch Mitch McConnell for the last decade. Now. Now he will no longer have the power that he once had. He'll still be the leader of the caucus. But as you can see from today's actions, people have already taken advantage of that. There is an incredible disarray within the Republican caucus in the Senate and growing disarray within the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives. Today's events will only make that more difficult to manage. Well, we'll learn more when we see how many lawmakers actually dropped their resistance to approving what we You know the vote from the electoral college that that'll be really interesting, and also how the president responds. I'm I'm less interested in how Mitch McConnell moves forward, then I am the president because If you remember after the George Floyd protests, he talked about bringing out the military for a domestic force use under the insurrection Act. And although this is ah lot different in that it would be his supporters that around about it does kind of bring in martial law. What do you expect from the president next? Well, I think it's going to be interesting because we've never seen a split. Like what we've seen today where the president Wild. The ceremony was beginning undermined his own vice president. Through his public comments and tweets on D. So you imagine what it must be like in the White House right now, where the president has attacked publicly his vice president. Called him out for not being willing to overturn the results of the election..

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm Noel King. Good morning, Reverend Raphael Warnock made history overnight, He won his Senate runoff election against Republican Kelly Leffler. He will be Georgia's first black senator, and he's on the line with me now. Good morning, Reverend Warnock. Good morning. Great to be here with you two. What do you attribute your win? And what do you think? It says about Georgia? Georgia certainly made me proud. Last night I was born and raised in the state. And they decided to send a kid who grew up in public house to the United States Senate to represent the concerns of ordinary people. You heard the and solve the Georgia electorate stand up last night. This is an electorate that has become increasingly diverse is the result of work We've been doing. For about a decade. Now we registered hundreds of thousands of voters in this state. Welcome to the New Georgia. It is more diverse it, it's more inclusive. And it readily embraces the future. And I'm the product of that, among other signs that you can see right on the ground here in this state. It is also a deeply divided state as many are. Joe Biden says he wants to be a president for all Americans. You have said You want to be a senator for all Georgians. How do you do that in such a divided time? All you have to continue to embody. The truth and the values that you talked about. On, so we tried to embody that first of all in my campaign. It was a campaign about the issues. It was about the concerns of ordinary people. I'm the pastor and I lied at the knees or Baptist Church with Martin Luther King Jr served He said that we're tied in a single garment of destiny caught up in an inescapable network of mutuality. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. So whether we're talking about health care Or talking about a livable wage. There's a way in which we have to look out for one another. I think that that truth has been brought into sharp focus by this covert 19 challenge. And every day I'm in the United States Senate. I intend to appeal to the high range of our nature. Bring us together in order to tackle these. They called it Yours was the first of two races called in Georgia. If Jon Ossoff's holds on to his lead, Democrats will control the U. S Senate. Now, if that happens, Do you think your party should focus on areas of compromise with Republicans? Or should you use this came to push for progressive legislation. When my brother John Mount saw is when it's racist. Settled is it will be and he joins me in the United States Senate. We will continue to work on health care which I believe is a human right. Affordable access to care. We will be thinking about the working people of our country and of our state who've been suffering for months. And had seen it little to no movement in the Congress. With 350,000 Americans gone Too much of the politics has become about the politicians. I think if we center the concerns of ordinary people, we can begin to push past some of these partisan divides. What do you think Congress needs to do now? To help Americans through the Corona virus? Pandemic and specific Sir, if you could please We ought to pass the $2000 stimulus. Um, I mean, folks waiting for months without getting any relief at all. And when we saw relief in the spring too often It's centered large corporate businesses. While small businesses were at the back of the line, it left workers out. And so people need immediate release and we've got to get this virus under control. We've got to get the vaccine safely and efficiently distributed. S so that we can say for the open our economy, get our businesses warring again get our Children back in the school, but in a way that's safe and sustainable. These are big issues. President Trump asked Georgia's secretary of state to change the results of the presidential election. Many Republicans, including your opponent didn't criticize him for doing that. Do you think that part of the Republican Party has abandoned democracy? Listen, the four most powerful words in a democracy are the people have spoken. The people of Georgia spoke very clearly on November 3rd when they elected. Joe Biden. Kamila Harris gave them are 16 electoral votes. We counted those votes three times. It is clear when you look at the swing states all across our country. No by this president elect, and unfortunately there are enablers. Of this nonsense. In the United States Senate. And that's why the people who are running into all across Georgia. Are frustrated with politics. And quite frankly, it's why I got it because we can't outsource our democracy to politicians. The people have to rise up, reclaim their own voice in their own democracy. And that's what happened last night right here in the state, of course, but again in such a divided country, there are people in Georgia, perhaps many of them that will refuse to accept your win as legitimate. Is going on all across the country. What do you do about that? I'm very clear about what my job is. As a United States Senator. And Addie is to be a senator for the people of Georgia. And so whether people voted for me or not. I intend to represent They're concerned in the United States Senate People deserve a livable wage. You know, we've been calling people in the mist of this pain. Then it Central Workers hopes that we too long ignored and diminished. Well, if they're essential workers will pay them in the central wage. We want to make sure That people do not lose their health care. That's the work that I will be focused on. I think that that work is its own power. Azi try to bring the country together. Let me ask you, Leslie about the work. Where do you stand on the progressive or moderate scale. Let me put a direct question to you. Do you think the Senate should push for progressive climate legislation like the Green New deal? I think that we need common sense reform on a whole range of issues..

Team coverage begins with W recipe Sandra Parish declaring himself the winner Reverend Raphael Warnock says he plans to represent all of Georgia when he goes to Washington whether you voted for me or not.

There are a lot of votes out there as you all know, and we have a path to victory and we're staying on it. I even now she's headed to Washington to object to the electoral College vote. I'm double USPS. Veronica Waters be a part of history. The two men at the center of one of Georgia's twin Senate run offs were both quiet overnight. Their race remains too close to call. But earlier Tuesday, Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff's did not entertain the prospect of splitting the two open seats between the parties when we win both of these Senate races during one hour when just hundreds of votes separated the challenger from Republican David Perdue, USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue, the senator's cousin, sounded an optimistic note that military ballots would land in the GOP's column and send Purdue back to Washington.

"W Packed with Lars Larson. Joe, it's a tune denied 2021. We're watching the results roll in from the great state of Georgia, where they had a fraudulent election on November 3rd in a lot of us hoped, Well, let's hope we don't have the same kind of problems on January, the fifth as we decide who controls the United States, Senate, R. Kelly Leffler and David Perdue Gonna win or John Ausaf and Raphael Warnock. Are they going to win? The fact is, if the Democrats get those seats, can you imagine the background? We've talked about the background of Raphael Warnock well or not before he is an absolutely execrable human being. He has said some terrible things. And of course, if the Democrats control things in the Senate, it's not going to be good for the United States of America, but I want to point something out. Joe Biden made a promise to Georgia voters in the last 24 hours that I think is actually illegal, and I hope that somebody files a Federal Election Commission complaint, Joe Biden told Georgia voters that the $2000 stimulus checks will never come. If the Republicans when the Senate run offs now you could say, Well, that's just political talk. Fact is. Joe Biden said that Americans would immediately receive $2000 in Corona virus relief If the Georgia State of Georgia votes for both Democrats in the U. S Senate run offs, he told Georgians those checks will never get there if David Perdue and Kelly Leffler were to win the race, So in other words, Joe Biden is offered you 2000 bucks to vote the way he wants you to vote. That in most states, it's illegal to offer somebody something of value anything of value and especially to offer cash if you vote the right way, But apparently those kinds of restrictions don't apply to somebody like Joe Biden. And any case. Glad to get your calls at 866 a Lars. That's 8664395277 emails Go to talk. Lars Larson dot com. Let's go to Nevada where Doug is on the line. Doug, Welcome to the program. What's on your mind tonight? Well, I'm wondering something in Georgia. They don't send ballots to P o box. Now in Lyon County, where I'm from other than a ranch. It's the only way we won't have mail service now doesn't that somewhat would disenfranchise? Rural areas, which were mainly conservative. Probably probably would, it probably would, and you need to have a physical address where you're going to receive your ballot. See, this is the reason Doug that I have always been against vote by mail. I happen to live in a state today that his vote by mail I lived in a different state 10 years or 15 years ago that had vote by mail vote by mail of giant is a gigantic disaster. And and one of the disasters. You've just outlined that if you say Well, we can't cut people out of voting if they don't have a home or if you know, and I'm taking the most extreme example. Somebody living under a bridge, they say, should still be able to vote. Well it once you open that door, and you say, Well, then we can have people who who's only address is the local you know, shelter for homeless people. Well, that means that you can you can create all kinds of phony votes and just have ballad show up by the dozens or by the hundreds at places that have no physical, no legal connection. The person who lives who lives there. You can just say yes, I live in the local shelter. Really? S O. You create a bunch of phony voter registrations, which the Democrats have been doing for a good long time. It's one of the problems that you run into with absentee ballots will vote by mail ballots with all those ballots, so Is a disenfranchising. I'm sure Doug did. Somebody could have argued before vote by mail. An absentee ballots that requiring you to get your pickup truck and drive from your farm or ranch all the way into a polling place. Somewhere that might be miles distant, would also be a disenfranchisement. But I'll bet you managed to find your way past it, didn't you? Well, yeah, the places undue hardship on voter their lives on a ranch or or what have you? They're saying Would you think about it? How would you go about fixing it? Uh, how would you go about fixing it? Yeah. You're saying, for instance, for instance, that you haven't sent it here, people box. You know what the problem is? The problem is Doug. Anybody can get a P O box in anybody's name. And what happens when all those p o boxes is stuffed with 20 ballots? Who are all said to use that same P o box because you've opened a door? You have protected the person who has to use a P O box because the legitimate reason you bring up which is you live on a ranch way out of town. And you don't even have rural mail service. So you have to go into town and go to your P O box. What do you do when people begin to gimmick the system by opening up a P O box, and then it registered 20 or 30 people to that same P o box and doubled their somebody to prove that those aren't legitimate voters. Because you've opened the door for fraud and cheating. Well, then you think it's okay to place an undue hardship on those words, But I think it's an undue hardship Doug any more than I think it was an undue hardship back in the days of pull voting, only which America did for for decades. To say, Doug, you're gonna have to get in your car and plan your next trip to town. I'm sure you go.
