Tulsi Gabbard: Joe Biden Is Busy on Vacation, Ignoring Border Crisis
"If we can not play cut three, I want to hear Tulsi Gabbard a breakdown Joe Biden and his his visit, I guess to another vacation. The Biden administration clearly isn't worried at all about the crisis at the southern border. I don't think they're paying attention to it at all. This is proof by the fact that Joe Biden is now heading to Saint Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands for some sun, rests and relaxation. Meanwhile, gangs and human traffickers not only have free run of the border, they basically control it as their profiting heavily fueling their criminal enterprise. Imagine that.

Caller: We Need Incoming Flight Restrictions From China
"My point is this. The Republicans have the house. I'm a Republican. I'm a conservative. Republicans have the house. But they obviously don't have the Senate and with all the rhinos in the Senate. They definitely don't have the Senate. So passing legislation probably not going to happen. However, the House candidate investigate and I hired my representatives here in North Carolina to get to the bottom of COVID. And that's what I demand that they do. And I hope people like you who have a little bit of their ear will continue to keep pressure on them because exposure is about the best thing we have going for as far as finding out the origin. Now maybe we can't do anything, but you've seen you've seen the headlines. China is their hospitals are overwhelmed. There's billions of people dying of COVID in China right now. And this president who's asleep at the wheel, I haven't heard one new sanction one new flight restrictions coming out of China. I tell you what in big trouble with this COVID and we need to find out what the heck's going on. Well, and I'll tell you, I saw something in the news today and we've talked about it here on the program that the president does care about flight restrictions as they pertain to his airplane going to the Virgin Islands for a Caribbean new year's rendezvous with family members, members of the Biden crime family, but I did see something where they are floating the trial balloon about putting these restrictions in place for flights coming into the U.S. from China.

"And judging from the numbers, I'm the only one, but I digress. President Joe Biden this week returns to Saint Croix, one of his and First Lady Jill Biden's beloved vacation spots. Seeking a final opportunity for rest before what is expected to be a contentious 2023 and reelection run. Hit the pause for one moment. Can you imagine CNN or any of the formerly mainstream media outlets? Talking about a Republican at any level of government in language like this. No, of course you can't. And we all know it. We all know about the hypocrisy. We all know about the double standard, but it's still bears mentioning because if we stop mentioning it, then it's sort of like we say it's okay. We acquiesce. And I certainly do not. I continue. As Biden unwinds in a familiar spot, the first couple have visited the U.S. Virgin Islands for more than a dozen years. Vacationing their approximately ten times since the mid 2000s, the work on his path forward intensifies back in a frigid Washington D.C.. Is this the west wing script that I'm reading or is this CNN? Well, I think it's CNN. The first couple arrived in Saint Croix on Tuesday, along with family members. A gathering of the tight knit clan, who, according to several people with knowledge of recent conversations who have spoken to CNN, have now pledged support for another White House run by Biden. Isn't this great? Isn't this wonderful? The bidens, you know, deserve this. Worked pretty hard, and they had to skip this tradition the last two years. So CNN points out that this trip may have some of the same vibes as one of their more recent vacations. In the early hours, I should have told you I was going to read this so that you folks could play lovely hallmark movie music in the background. That's my mistake. This trip may have some of the same vibes as early hours of 2019 Biden was last contemplating a presidential bid, the couple were photographed. I always learned it was the couple was photographed, but I guess the grammar police will have to figure that out. Photograph taking a selfie in Saint Croix on New Year's Day. Catching the first sunrise of the new year at the easternmost point under the American flag. Okay. Oh, and they want privacy during all of this. This is where they go for privacy. Now, I'll just kind of put that over here. We've started by telling you about the first family. Various members of the Biden crime family. On the island of Saint Croix, in the Caribbean, U.S. Virgin Islands. Here's another headline that I saw. With warming temperatures, snow bound buffalo braces to find more dead. As temperatures are warming in Buffalo, New York. In Erie county, New York. As they are now able to get to stranded cars, homes, et cetera, the death toll is now 34. From the winter storm. This is the same winter storm, by the way, that grip so many of us. Here in the state of Iowa, where I'm from, we had some snow, but then we had blizzard conditions for multiple days, 50 mile an hour wind, wind chills of 30, 40 below zero, the temperature was below zero, I think for 70 straight hours, something like that. Obviously the folks at starnes media group at the 99 90 in Memphis, they know all about the ice storm, the drop in temperatures, how it is affected the city's water supply electricity, et cetera, and wherever you are, I'm sure you have your own story of how the winter storm affected you. Last week, President Biden was given a briefing on the fourth coming winter storm as it was phrased and it was on Thursday. Worst of it had already hit. The Midwest, the heartland of the nation, were the best people live, the people who feed the world. Well, The White House finally paid attention when, oh my goodness, it's going to hit the Eastern Time zone. And the president was fully briefed and we saw him sitting there staring at a television monitor. As they were showing graphic interfaces of what would happen with the weather and he looked very, very sad and then said, as he was going to leave, now this is not just like a snow day. This is serious. The time to act the time to get to safety is now. Except for the rest of the country, the time had already passed. Complete ten year to what was going on. For the president of all the people, as he pledged he would be. I'm not saying you don't. Issue warnings when you have several feet of snow. When you have areas of the country, having unique weather conditions. Once in a decade, once in a century type conditions. Certainly, but to make it seem to most of America like it only mattered when it started affecting them, that's a ten year. And I not saying that the president of the United States should not get together with his family. I'm not saying that they shouldn't take some time off. The job is 24/7 on call. You get away whenever you can. I have no problem with that. There is just, however, a sense of we in the ruling class are better than the rest of you. We in the ruling class know better and we don't have to play by the same rules that you do. So the optics, how it looks for at the same time they are still finding an I apologize for being direct about this. At the same time, they're finding dead bodies. Because of weather, at the same time, that there are millions who have diminished resources, power, water, et cetera they go to the Caribbean. Because while they haven't been able to go on their annual new year's holiday for a couple of years, and again, in the words of CNN, a final opportunity for rest before what is expected to be a contentious 2023 and reelection run..

"Torrential rain, a hurricane warning is in effect for the Dominican Republic with a tropical storm warning posted for the U.S. Virgin Islands. I'm Tammy trujillo. Your listening to Bloomberg business of sports from Bloomberg radio. Thanks for joining us on the Bloomberg business of sports show where we explore the big money issues in the world of sports on Michael Barnes. I'm Scarlett poo. And I'm Damien Sasha sour. We have sports media legend dick ever sold on the show with us. Let's continue our conversation. So following on what Damien had asked you in terms of folks who paved the way for you who are mentors to you, who do you see as the media executives, the sports executives to keep an eye on, people who could be real game changers and who are rethinking the way that live sports is broadcast. And telling the stories that that consumers are eating up. Well, each of the network specialized at something and I find the networks that are the most watchable are the ones where the boss is a creative type and not a businessman. And for example at CBS John McManus dad was Jim McKay, he was brought up around storytelling. His father may have been the best storyteller in the history of sports on television. In the halcyon days of wide world of sports. I think that the folks at Fox are terrific. They came a long later than the other networks with is certainly picked up the ball and ran with it when they got their first big football contract and later baseball. And NBC is really well led by Mark Lazarus and he has a stable of producers who he very much backs by making sure they always had the money. Not personally and their pocket brought quite often. But they had the money to do the shows right and that wasn't always the case 20, 30 years ago on television. But it is today. So I got another question for you. If you don't mind my asking, I mean, I remember, I mean, obviously, Saturday night's main event, wrestling, Vince McMahon. You're up in Connecticut. You know the WWF used to be headquartered up there, you know, obviously ESPN's up there, all that good stuff. You know, I mean, do you still see a lot of activity going on in Connecticut as it relates to sports? I mean, is there still, is it still an area where people go to to sort of cut their teeth in the business? I wish there was an answer to that, but it basically boils down to the fact that many of those people chose to live here and Connecticut made it easy for them to get some tax breaks to build these enormous production facilities like ESPN has and like Vince has, which a lot of them to do a post production job the likes of the kind of thing you only used to see from say an Olympics. They do it almost every night now because they have these castles of sports production located there and they got favorable tax breaks to build those buildings years and years ago and they took good advantage of it. And we're the beneficiaries because storytelling is so much better done today on a consistent basis than it was years ago because so many more people are involved. So you had mentioned that baseball is seeing a decline in popularity perhaps. We talked about the championship is race to win the piece of metal. I mean, here's a sport that competes for months and months and months and months to be the best to win that big trophy and he's referring to it as a medal. That never would have come out of the mouth of somebody who loved baseball the way, but this guy obviously doesn't. While you're first, perhaps, what does baseball need to do to fix the game? I mean, they've passed a sweeping set of rule changes to quicken the pace. I'm so encouraged by that. It was a language that I and several other people were preaching, I don't know, 5 or 6 decades ago that they had to do things. I'm not seeing as much as I used to, but I used to see a lot of minor league baseball. And when they started going with that piss clock, I remember sitting in a ballpark in Des Moines at the time the team was owned by a friend of mine. And they'd get all in that. And they'd use that as a way to boost the guy with up at bat or the pitcher, and they got into it. It was a lost opportunity by baseball to speed up the game.

Vivek Ramaswamy Discusses Biden's Failed Economic Policies
"Ramaswami. Welcome back to America first. Good to see you. How you doing? I'm doing well. It's been really hard to get you on the show. I think we've had president Trump on twice in the meantime trying to get you back on, but you're busy, man, because you've got a very, very important message. You got a new book coming out in September. You got a new company. We'll talk about all of that. But let's start at the beginning as somebody who is a proud capitalist and citizen, this language that we've been hearing at the moment out of this administration about the greedy greedy gas station owners. Why can't you just set it cheaper? Am I reading a little bit into it when I say this smacks of systems we've seen fail elsewhere be weak? I don't think you're reading too much into it at all. The only thing you might be missing is a bad understanding of how markets actually work that this president suffers. But what he forgets is that this is actually the direct product of their own policy agenda. I'll remind you that he said in September 2019, he made a campaign promise. The campaign promise was I guarantee you were going to end fossil fuels. That was the quote precisely. Well, guess what? That seems one campaign promise. He seems pretty intent on delivering on, cutting permits for drilling in, say, Alaska, over a million acres of land leases, canceled just in the last few months. You have a refinery expansion in the U.S. Virgin Islands. That was ultimately cut. A lot of actions that have constrained the ability for the U.S. oil and gas sector to be able to produce. Guess what happens in the laws of supply and demand when you cut down supply, prices go up, especially when demand stays flat or demand goes up.

"Of stopping of his words. Because he has the first Amendment right to them. I think the problem with that argument, and I would say this to Mr Dershowitz is that it gets too far into the legal weed's for something that is not a legal process. That you might be able to appeal to some of the lawyers in the room there in the Senate. But I think you need a Larger Yeah. Tangible arguments, something you can better sink your teeth into. That's why I go to Their impeachment article is incitement of insurrection. And what they presented yesterday was looking all the horrible things that happened. They did not in any way, shape or form proved the incitements. Tony Katz, Tony Cats today 833 got Tony 8334688669. Now we're going to cover more of The impeachment trial today have to we got to hear what they're saying and know what's going on. The name you're gonna be hearing is delegate Stacey Plaskett. P L A s k E T T from the U. S Virgin Islands. I was I was on Newsmax Yesterday. I was on Newsmax this morning on a different subject this morning, something despicable from Andy Anderson Cooper, which I'll get to But discussing a bit of impeachment yesterday and then got to watch her presentation in full. She did a very good job. For style, her demeanor her her proper pacing all worked out extremely well. What was she sharing? Well, here's a mock up of the capital. Everybody, you see this red dot That's where the writers mob wasn't Here's all that happened, video of them breaking into the capital. Video of an officer. Going right by Mitt Romney Senator Mitt Romney as he was walking to the chamber running by him, and then Mitt Romney turning around and running to his office. Staffers getting into a conference room and then seven minutes later, you had writer's banging at the doors. Video of Mike Pence in his family being ushered. Down the stairs, which was video. I have to tell you I was very opposed to seem Not that it made their case or I don't believe it does make their case. But the idea that I don't want anyone to see what we do with the president or the vice president of the United States. I only hope they got approval from the secret Service before sharing that video. And I'll say this. It's ugly. It's ugly, ugly video, some of it just like we saw and day one when they were showing why this was constitutional, you could argue, was deceptively edited. I think you'd be able to make that argument effectively in a serious response. The point, however, is that what delegate a plastic Was putting forward had nothing to do with The impeachment article, which is incitements insurrection it had to do with a riot at the Capitol, and that's why it's so easily easily. Pushed back against. It is easy to take a look at this and say Wait a second. Don't want to take you through some of it. Bit by bit now. I don't have Her fully condensed version of what she discussed. Have a couple of things that she said that I'll share with you utilizing my words. If someone's going to say to me, I'm not saying it the way she said it you go back and check the audio and you'll find. Of course, I'm saying it exactly as she said it or paraphrasing to exactly as she said it because I gained nothing from not utilizing her words. And one of the things that they shared work calls for help. There were calls for help. From the Capitol police. Now you know that I'm somebody who wants is why the Capitol Police didn't open fire. We say that again. I want to know why the Capitol Police didn't open fire. If you say to me, Tony, that Z terrible. These people there they were fighting for justice. No, they weren't. They were dressed up like a Viking or a center and they were looking to do. God only knows what? You aren't fighting for your rights if you can carry the podium out of the house. If you have time for a selfie, you're not fighting for rights. So let's stop that conversation in its tracks could be a lot easier. To go forward. Calls for help. I I agree that there are calls for help, and I believe they were probably panicked calls for help, and she played something. They were kind of calls for help. Riot here breaking down the gate there. We need help here. We need this. I don't know where Capitol police where I wonder why there weren't more There were There were reasons to have more. I'll get to that in a second, something else that don't get, Plaskett said from the U. S. Virgin Islands But in this idea of calls for help, the first thing I asked myself is what about the calls for help for from David Dorn? David Dorn. Captain ST Louis shot and killed in from a pawn shop during the riots there over George Floyd. Or it was just an anti variety, Whatever. Sometimes these things all blend into each other, but there he was shot and killed. I don't know if he had a chance to make a call for help, but I'm sure he wanted to Calls for help are in no way. In no way. Of incitement to insurrection. No proof at all. So when you tell me that there were calls for help, what you're telling me is there were calls for help. Notice how it doesn't connect. There's ah lawyer Leslie Gordon. I believe her name is I thought, she said something very, very smart and social media, which is so rare to find That they presented to the Democrats in a way that basically stated we're telling you this is bad, so it must be true. If we're saying it, so therefore it's factual, and that's not the way any of this works. Inside. That's not science. Let's go to another part of it. Here we see These these people entering the halls and and breaking into the building, and they are in tactical body armor. They have baseball bats and body shields. And the first thing I said was Oh, you mean antifa. How many times have we seen in Seattle and Portland? In Chicago in New York, New York Just a few weeks ago, they had a march with full body shields. We've always seen them in tactical gear baseball bats. We see that all the time. Where is where is delicate Plaskett been No one is making the argument that the people who went to the capital were awful were wrong. Shouldn't say awful. I should say wrong somewhere off. I'm sure you could find somebody like, Hey, that guy was just confused. They were wrong to enter. As opposed to being an awful person. Okay. Maybe I'm Biggs Way of giving too much credit. Maybe I'm being too nice. The largest yell conversation. Is that there are people who came to do damage just like we see in these cities all the time. Were there or were there not riots in Portland just last night with people trying to enter the police station? Center means break in enter means busted Andrew means.

"Plaskett of the Virgin Islands, one of the House managers, making her case in the impeachment trial of President Trump. Here comes later in tremendous. Jamie will now return to the events of January 6th itself, she will demonstrate President Trump's repeated incitement of the crowd. That warning is he directed them the capital in his last ditch effort to retain his hold on power. We'll hear from another impeachment manager now. This is Madeleine Dean. She's a Democrat from Pennsylvania. She has already spoken earlier today, so she's returning. To continue to make the case after her remarks, the Senate is likely to take another short break before presuming their arguments for the conviction of Donald Trump and his impeachment trial. Again. They're having issues. Yes, Microphone. Representative Dean is about six inches blood of representative Plaskett, so they have to readjust the microphone. For me, and for many people would January 6th is forever etched in our memories. I went to work with a sense of excitement, the start of my second term in Congress and the first time I would participate in the certification of a presidential election. And then we all know what happened. I know many of us have similar experiences from that day, but I'll briefly share mine. Stood with colleagues in the gallery above the House floor. To observe the Arizona challenge. Moments later, police radios reported a breach of the Capitol grounds. Someone shouted up to us duck! Then lie down. And ready your gas masks. Shortly after there was a terrifying Banging on the chamber doors. I will never forget that sound. Shouts and panicked calls to my husband and to my sons. Instructions to flee and then the constant worrying of the gas masks filtering the air. The chamber of the United States House of Representatives turned to chaos. Donald Trump. It was a very different day. Earlier, I showed you Donald Trump's desperate attempts to maintain power. Ignoring adverse court rulings attacking elected officials pressuring his Justice Department even attacking his own vice president. You saw a man who refused to lose who was desperate to retain power by any means necessary. You saw a man willing to attack anyone and everyone who got in his way. And you saw a man who thought he could play by different rules. He told his supporters. As my colleague, Ms Plaskett just showed you exactly what he thought. Those different rules were. Combat. Fight violence. This was not just one speech. This was weeks and weeks of deliberate effort by Donald Trump to overturn the election results so that he didn't have to give up the presidency. The speech on January 6 builds on refers to and amplifies that same pattern. Pattern Trump had used and broadcast it for months. He refused to lose. His attacks on others and his different rules. The only thing different about his speech on January 6th from all these other times that we went through. Was that he was no longer telling his base just that they had to fight to stop the steel. He was finally telling them now is the time to do it. Here's the place and here's how For weeks. He urged his supporters to show up at a specific time and place and when they got there, he told them exactly what he wanted. Let's start with his desperation. You saw how much planning went into January, the sixth, and when the day arrived, Donald Trump's desperation was in full force. Between the time he woke up on January, the fifth and the start of the Save America March that next day he had tweeted 34 times. When Donald Trump wants to get his message across. He is not shy as you all know. These tweets were relentless. And these tweets all centered on his singular focus his drumbeat to motivate anger and incite his supporters. His big lie. The presidential election had been rigged. It had been stolen from him and they had to fight to stop it. And the timing was no coincidence he sent 34 tweets because this was his last chance to rile up his supporters. For the big, historic wild event he had planned. Now I won't go through all of these tweets. But let me just highlight a few One in the morning. He tweeted. If Vice President Mike Pence comes through for us, we will win the presidency might consent it back. This will look familiar to you. Because Mr Lu just showed you how Trump had privately he was pressuring and publicly attacking his vice president to stop the certification. And when vice president Pence refused when he explained that the Constitution simply does not allow him to stop certification. Donald Trump provoked his base to attack him. Late in the evening. Tweet was no different. Just got more forceful. Let's be clear what Donald Trump was saying that vice president Pence could send back the certification. Was not true. One thing all 50 safe states had ratified this election. And for another vice president, Pence. Explained to him that he does not have the power to unilaterally overturn states votes and just send the certification back. And Donald Trump knew this, but this was his last chance. Get is vice president to stop the certification. And so he was willing to say or do just about anything. These tweets attacking the election is fraudulent, attacking his vice president and urging his supporters to fight. Continued throughout the morning. There's another example. At 8:17 A.m.. He tweeted all my cat Mike Pence has to do is send it back to them. And back to the states and we win. And we win. That's what he said, even though by then he had clearly lost. As Trump continued tweeting the Save America march of the White House was now in full swing. Speakers who warmed up the crowd for Trump were members of his inner circle family members, his personal attorney. People President Trump had deputized to speak on his behalf. Some of the speakers also spoke at the second million Maga march, which resulted in serious violence. Warm up acts on January, 6th focused on promoting Donald Trump's big lie. They stoke the same fears a stolen election. Fraud of ripping victory away from them. The speakers told them what to do about it. As the crowd erupted in fight for Trump Chance throughout that morning, Donald Trump Jr urged. That's the message. These guys better fight for Trump. Speakers lasted three hours, repeating President Trump's message and finally, at about noon, Donald Trump took the stage with the seal of the presidency. On his podium and the White House as his backdrop. President Trump spoke for more than 70 minutes. His narrative was familiar. It was the same message he had spent months spreading to his supporters. The big lie. Election was stolen. They should never concede. And that his supporters should be patriots and fight much harder to stop this steel To take back our country. The same phrases he'd spread for weeks. But now the message was immediate. That was just no longer just fight. It was fight right now. All of us here today. Do.
