From the Frontlines to the Clandestine with Drew Hernandez
"I'm joined with the great drew Hernandez, drew, welcome back, man. I want to brag on drew here. Drew flew out to Washington, D.C. and anticipation of the roe V wade ruling. Drew, you kind of camped out there waiting for it and drew got some of the most compelling footage right as the roe versus wade ruling was announced, both positive and negative footage. And you also got into that kind of altercation with one of the guys there in D.C. doing some great front lines reporting. Yeah, Charlie, I mean, I mean, it's a team effort. I know you and I were coordinating on when we should go. And I think the best decision was to just kind of like stake it out and wait because it's a monumental. This is American history. Yes. It's huge. This is something that we didn't want to miss if we did. I think we would have really regretted it. But I was kind of like running some of the numbers.

Caller Who Attended Jan. 6 Never Saw a Gun, Knife or Threat
"When I got to the capitol time and amongst the crowd and I was there for several hours, I never once saw a gun, I never once saw a knife, I never once saw anybody communicate in a threat either as someone in attendance or a capitol police officer. I never heard one person say, let's go burn it down. Nothing at all like that. So Charles, here's what gets me. Charles here's what gets me. About the AR-15s, because Cassidy Hutchinson, she says that she heard from somebody who heard from somebody that there were people armed with AR-15s all over the place. My question is, okay, well, why didn't the D.C. police department step in? If in fact, the D.C. police saw these weapons, that's a crime those kinds of weapons are illegal in Washington, D.C., so why didn't they intervene? Exactly. And I can tell you that the police department was around the capital, hundreds of them, and you're exactly right. If a cop stall, somebody walking with an AR-15, they're going to either arrest them, or they're going to take them out. And if the crowd was so heavily armed, why weren't any weapons confiscated, why weren't any police officers shot by the protesters? The only people that died that day were all Trump supporters. And the only person shot was actually by that. And they know it's a lot. And I don't think that this committee is what they're doing is designed to reveal the truth is just designed to do damage to Donald Trump. But here's my thing. All these little lies that they tell and they told over the last four years, they get away with it. There's never accountability. And my hope is that when the Republicans take control in November, that we not only launch investigative committees on January 6th, but also on November 3rd, 2020.
Gov. Kristi Noem: Dems Assume They Can Talk the Public Into Anything
"They're usually smarter than this And the thing is is Jim sided to me my producer will be going over in the first hour this January 6th hearing Oh you got Paul came out today That's even worse for the Democrats So in other words they're doing the January 6th stuff the distractions the Putin price hike the blame game and none of its working You would think they'd be a little more tactically efficient and say eh time to switch the game plan up Yeah it just shows how dishonest they are And honestly this situation shows that the American public are in a bunch of dummies I mean they're paying attention And it's their everyday life and the Democrats are assuming that they can talk the American public into anything And I think after what we've seen the last two to three years the public is doing their homework now They're understanding exactly what's going on in Washington D.C. they're paying attention They're reading past the headlines and they are seeing hypocrisy for what it is So I'm grateful for that People get worried about our country I'm encouraged I'm inspired because we've got people paying attention that never were before They're showing up at meetings They're going to school boards They're going to local governments state legislators and weighing in on congressional issues that maybe two or three years ago they didn't care about today they do
Can Conservatives Sustain a Movement Based on Democrat Insanity?
"So we call this common sense, the phrase common sense actually can be best described as prudence, otherwise known as prudentia in the Greek. Where people say this doesn't really resonate with me and the kind of bumper sticker I see quite often here in Arizona is common sense 2022, common sense isn't that common after all. It's kind of a very typical meme that you'll see, especially for people over the age of 50 because they believe what used to be considered to be upon agreed upon truths are now all kind of being put into question. For example, in math classes across America, they're being, they're teaching young children that math and science are symptoms of a white supremacist construct. And so now we see this 1 million voters switching to the Republican Party, something we talked about yesterday but I thought about this kind of in the last 24 hours, I don't want Republicans to be preemptively celebrating this. This is not because of the compelling persuasive message of the Republican Party. In fact, I think it's the opposite. I think people are reluctantly and begrudgingly becoming Republicans. Now, if Republicans were more like Ron DeSantis, who were clear and precise in what they believe and why they believe it, we're bold in their action and stand up against Washington D.C. and the entrenched corporate interests, and even though people might not agree with everything that Republicans are saying, they might respect that they're doing something and they can explain why they believe it.
Why the Original Roe v. Wade Decision Was One of the Worst
"I believe that the roe V wade decision one of the worst decided constitutional cases that we've ever seen decided both liberals and conservative jurists and scholars have said this forever. Own the roe V case because it actually was a judicial solution to a problem that was beginning to be handled at the state level. And no matter what side you fell on, it was beginning to be addressed at these levels. And the controversy was real. 1970 one, USB Butch, virtue TCH, actually D.C. Washington D.C. allowed abortions and this was tailed by the courts in that. So you're starting to see the courts actually running on this as well. Now, that brings us to 1973 on the penult case of the ending case of roe V wade and also dovey Bolton. Now both of these are together, the roe V wade emphasized in what became of the trimester selection of when a state can do anything, you know, the first trimester that can do nothing second trimester only maternal. You know, if you don't have internal health, third trimester, they could ban those. But this was the interesting position of roe V wade that built on a previous case. Now, again, liberal activists Proto us pro abortion activists had been fighting in these states, you know, state to state to make it legal or to show it to be legal and certain stages to get an abortion in these states. We already saw this happening. This was not a new occurrence. It was a discussion, but it was being played out in the proper federalist doctrine if you would of the of our country and that is each state deciding for themselves what their value of life was and how they determine the def abortion was going to be legal or not
Kristan Hawkins: 'Students for Life of America' Has More Work to Do
"Here and it's important for people to understand this. It's not like you guys are closing up shop now. Your work is just starting because this fight now goes back to the states. Absolutely, we have gone from one location in Washington D.C. banging on the door of the Supreme Court waiting for them to reverse their grief decision to 50 state capitals and that's actually where the pro life generation will be tomorrow. 50 state capitals saying life is louder demanding that our governors attorney generals are state legislators. They have hold pro life laws. They uphold their prolife conviction to act on their pro life convictions and do what we should have done decades ago and protect all life, human life, from the moment of
Kristan Hawkins Describes Excitement Following SCOTUS Decision
"Line. Kristen Hawkins with students for life, Christian, where are you and how excited are you about today's ruling? I am in Washington, D.C.. I was there at the Supreme Court reading the decision as it came down in front of the first post row generation. It's been quite an exciting day in the past couple of hours. This is something that we've been working for for my entire adult life for the folks in the pro life movement had a sacrifice and stroke for before. I was even conceived to see that that 49 and a half year old egregious decision come down today and be thrown into the ash heap of history.
Still Little to No News in January 6 Hearings
"We also got on the panel last night to the one 6 hearing, and a big surprise, a big surprise for me. I learned something from the one securing history, cut number 23. What do you make of this hearing today and overall how these have kind of come out methodically? Well, today I learned something new. Something that's unusual. I learned that the assistant attorney general for the office of legal counsel, Steve engel. I've only met once and had a long conversation with once. But he very highly esteemed in Washington, D.C., and he served in that job four years for president Trump. When asked by president Trump what he would do if he fired the acting attorney general replaced him with a Trump oil is further down. He said, I'll quit. And the president backed off. That's news. That's the first time I've learned something from these hearings. And so the reason the public is fundamentally disinterested in what is going on in the Nancy Pelosi won 6 committee is that there is precious little news in these carriers. But when there is some, I notice it. And I know that the president got pushed back from one of his most trusted age and we ought to know that.
Doug Takes a Deep Dive Into Gun Legislation
"Today, I want to, this is a timely issue, and I wanted to go ahead and discuss this because it's just something disturbing issues that are coming out. And it's going to happen very fast. This is what happens in Washington, D.C.. When circumstances in the world meet the emotional response of people and the fact that they need to do something. We talk about this a week or two ago on the podcast. When I talk about what makes you feel good doesn't always heal you. And it's talking about an honest discussion about guns. We're going to have another honest discussion this morning about the fact that what happened and you vote text is what happened at that school. Is a tragedy? What happened at school should have never happened in many ways when you had someone who decided to go into a school to use a gun and to kill people. I mean, that is was the choice that this Ramos made. He made the choice to go in there. He made the choice to kill people. He used a gun in the process. We've talked about how the many aspects of what is being proposed will not solve this, but again, as I said just a little bit ago in one of the other podcasts, was it always seems to be the very first thing that we do is to solve something is take something away from legal gun owners or legal possession to fix something that, frankly, is not going to fix.
Stephen Colbert Remains Defensive About Staffers' Arrests
"He is very defensive about what took place with his staff He's the kingpin behind it obviously With his 7 staffers were arrested They rested because they defied the Capitol Hill police and you would think that with all the security there and walled all the attention given to January 6th that Colbert and his conga linea leftists would know better But they don't Because they think they're above the law They know they'll never have to pay the price So his staffers were arrested They spent a few hours in their D.C. jail and they were released And they flew back to New York I wonder if along the way they saw some of the January 6th trespassers In the D.C. jail probably not since summer in solitary confinement The U.S. attorney in Washington D.C. is a hack He worked on the Biden campaign he's a hack and his wife is a hack And so it really is unimaginable that there would be equal justice Equity I think we call it now The way AOL is regurgitating this And they pick it off from Yahoo entertainment On Monday is the Late Show with Stephen Colbert Open by addressing the arrest of some of the staff in the capital complex late last week The crew were there with Robert schmiegel who voices triumph the insult comic dog covering the January 6th hearings Covert said that both Republicans and Democrats were willingly interviewed So what

The Relationship Between Our Economic Might and Our Military Strength
"Get put into question, all of a sudden, the currency that you trade with, the savings that you have in your bank account, the equity in your home gets immediately put in jeopardy and put into question. Now, we have to understand it's not our actual military might at times that matters. But it's the appearance of muscle and force. Our enemies must be even afraid of questioning. Our military prowess. Now, we're in a lot of saber rattling situations right now, we're in a completely and totally unnecessary proxy war against Russia and Ukraine, propping up zelensky for the Ames and the ambitions of the Washington D.C. regime. But let me reiterate this point. If we fail to have a combat ready, superior fighting force, the wealth peace and prosperity that you enjoy, and you want your children to enjoy, will shatter. And
The Ending of Uncovered Arrivals & Depatures
"But one of the things I was always proud of with the Secret Service too is our screw ups not just helpful hints became part of our training in the future You know how many times I showed students when I was an instructor and went through the academy myself that Reagan video of him being shot outside the Hilton in Washington D.C. we would say to suits this is where we screwed up You know what we did there that we never did again we did an open arrival and departure Meaning you could see the president leave you've seen the video President Reagan waves on departure from the Hilton and John hinckley then shoots him from the press pen Well what did we learn from that We learned to never do uncovered arrivals or departures again uncovered we now do them intense For a couple reasons Number one it's hard to shoot what you can't see But number two we try to keep him guessing where exactly he's going to arrive Go underground if you can if you have to go above ground put a tent Why isn't a rival in departure of a protectee the most dangerous part of your mission because of the deadly diamond It's like two diamonds back to back If you were looking to kill the president God forbid you have to know where he is And the best place on a motorcade route is where he arrives at the airport where he rise at the site Because he's going to arrive and depart You don't know where he's going to go in between their 5 or 6 different streets they can take You want to set up an advance and we change that It's time to look at these videos now and change everything
The Soviet Spies' Depths of Evil With David Adams Cleveland
"I'm talking to David Adams Cleveland at the author of a brand new book novel gods of deception and David, you were just making a point and we had to cut you off. Please forgive me and go back to that point. Just to give you some idea about the depths of evil that were perpetrated by the Soviet spies in the American government, besides Alger Hiss, Alger Hiss, by the way, on the way back from yalta, stopped in Moscow for one day with elements of the American delegation. And in a secret ceremony he was taken aside by the head of Soviet intelligence and given the order of the red star for his contributions to Soviet intelligence. That's just for beginners. But here's something even more astonishing that Americans need to know about the level, the depth of evil. That was going on at this time. There was a Soviet spy at the upper echelons of the Treasury Department by the name of Harry Dexter white. Well, in 1941, the summer of 1941, Harry Dexter white was approached by his Soviet handler. Victor pavlov was his name, same name as the guy that had the salivating dog. Victor pavlov. And he wanted to meet with Harry Dexter white at old app, it's grill in Washington, D.C., right off the Treasury Department. And Pablo says I'm going to meet you there. I'm going to have a copy of The New Yorker with me. You'll recognize me. They'd never met before. They sit down. They have lunch. And pavlov pushes a piece of paper across the table to Harry Dexter white and he says, I want you to read this and put it to memory. And white picks up the paper and reads it and nods and says, yes, I understand. What that was on that piece of paper was what the Soviets called operation snow. It was a plan to, for the U.S. to ratchet up the pressure on Japan. In summer of 1941, that is embargoes on oil and raw materials, where the idea of pressuring the Japanese so that instead of invading north in the Siberia where they'd been fighting with the Soviets for a number of years, that Japan would be forced to go south.
Harriet Hageman: We're Turning Into a Third World Country
"You are running specifically to do this in this office And people want to see I am going to let you you are going to do what right What you just said is perfectly encapsulates Liz Cheney's entire career She saw an opportunity to grab the microphone and weaponize this January 6th committee and continue to talk about things Harriet everything that's been said about January 6th has been said We're not changing any minds Everybody everybody's had a chance to say it is time to fix the inflation crisis the gas prices crisis and she's not talking about any of that She's wasting her time going after Donald Trump in the last election Well that's exactly right And that's why she has become a useful tool for the Democrats while she continues to try to attack and hurt the Republicans and the people that can actually solve these problems We're turning into a third world country before our eyes We are airlifting baby formula into the United States of America We have a situation where as I said we're going to have a food crisis We've got a supply chain crisis We have an energy crisis all because of horrific policies coming out of Washington D.C. These are not natural crises These are not natural catastrophes They are man-made and they are man-made by the uni party that has been running Washington D.C. for the last 40 years perhaps even longer But that's why we need to have normal everyday average folks like Harriet hagerman step up and say no more We're not going to let the elitists make the decisions They put us $30 trillion in debt They're in the process of destroying our schools And I often say that there is a special place in hell excuse my language for people who adopt policies that are intended to increase the cost of energy food and housing because it hits the poorest and the middle class among
The Basic Budgeting System in Washington DC Is Broken
"Let's also talk about one thing in the federal budget itself. This is something that I have talked about a great deal in Congress and I've talked about it outside. The basic budgeting system in Washington D.C. is broken. You've got to understand this. If you don't understand this, then we're not even in the same page as far as trying to fix it. So let me just break it out very simply. And I used to do this with a dollar bill. And these are both approximations. So if you're out there trying to say, you know, you're a two percentage points off, then again, you need to understand what I'm trying to say. I'm trying to put the budget in perspective. Because I hear so many times about the balanced budget act. And why don't we just do a balanced budget act? Well, you're getting ready to find out that that would be a good thing because we can't balance it on a federal level, but to implementational balanced budget actors, something that will be especially if it's not phased in over a number of years would be in devastating on the economy because the government has entwined itself so much in our regular economy now that bringing cutting it back to just basically almost everything in the federal government. We've got a problem and I had to deal with debt and other issues that would go forward. So let me let's just break this down for you. If you had $1, if you would. And again, these are from over the past few years so numbers have fluctuated. I'm trying to take out the COVID spending Drake out the extra spending that's out there. Let's just stick to what was normally in the range of the budget if you would. First thing to understand about budget in the appropriations bills in Congress, 12 of them, they're supposed to be passed individually. Most of the time they're not, they put an omelet in the spill. You have the typical spending is about half half roughly, is defense, Manny, and have is overall is your spending for everything else. For the most in the government. There are also another two categories in both the defense and the rest of the government spending fall into what's called a discretionary spending discretionary spending is when the you have the members of Congress have the ability to raise it or lower it. So if you wanted to spend $10 in defense instead of $5 spent, that's a discretionary among the members of

The wealthiest county in America is loudon county, Virginia. What do you use on a daily basis? That is made in loudoun county, Virginia. Anything? What are they known for?

The Economy Is on the Pathway to a Recession
"The news yesterday is the news as it was all week. The economy sucks because Joe Biden is president. Recession fears grow is down closes below 30,000 in mortgage rates spike. That is the headline in The Washington Post. So the second headline fed's full tilt inflation fight makes a softish landing harder to achieve. The already slim odds writes the Financial Times Colby Smith in Washington, D.C., of the Federal Reserve bringing down inflation without causing a painful economic downturn, took another leg lower on Wednesday as the U.S. Central Bank embraced what is said to be the most aggressive campaign to tighten monetary policy in decades. And that led that led to the Dow going down 741 points to close at 29 92. That's below 30,000. It was never below 30,000. I don't think under Trump. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think so.
"washington dc" Discussed on GayBarchives Podcast
"Because you kind of felt like he needed to vic girlfriend was a cover. She was a good friend who was just very She knew what she wanted. I couldn't say no but I knew i was gay. I figured that. I wouldn't have to tell anyone until i was thirty. Was one of the deal. I had made with myself. Or whatever reason was that workout. Oh i think. I waited till i was twenty so But later once. I was out in going there on summer breaks when i was coming in college Being able to go there. When i was twenty i. I didn't realize that every city didn't have what i went to college in washington dc. I didn't go to bars. Until i turned twenty one. Because i was such a good boy and i didn't know the every city didn't have something like this and it was only much later that i realized how unique was and You know i always. I've always thought thought that everyone else was ahead of me in coming out or whatever so i just take things in and don't form firm opinions about them because i assume that everyone else already knows about it in everyone else already decided whether it's good or bad And that's a bad habit. I carried with me into life so At the time. I assumed everyone had already been to a place like this and i was just trying to catch up but while you were in. Dc you did discover after you turn twenty one. There was vibe. Game highlights there. Yeah absolutely in friends of mine. And i would go to the tracks nightclub in southeast dc. It's gone now. The site is under the department of homeland security now who several bars ugly in different cities including one in milwaukee that The gay bar somehow ended up being a homeland security or department of defense building or something else. It's kind of ironic. But somebody has to do something well it. It was part of southeast. Dc at a time when the city was just starting to gentrify and it had metro service. Subway service so you can take the subway from anywhere in the suburbs or whatever into this industrial zone so in some ways it didn't make sense for it to be you know auto yards and muffler shops. But there were also black churches and black neighborhoods there And all of that got displaced because when the government expanded post nine eleven all of that became sort of a government district. I haven't gone back there but it used to be when you would go get on the last train of the night which would be around eleven o'clock. Pm last trains. You could see all the people going to tracks. You could pick them out. You know people were gonna. They were dressed up. They had their face makeup. Bond people were really giddy..
"washington dc" Discussed on This is Today
"This day unique. It's thursday september ninth twenty twenty one. I'm russ and here's what you need to know about today. Yeah those school photos you know. Yeah i've got a got the mullet going on today. I've got the sweater with multiple weird patterns on it. I'm all set for school picture day. Today why is it today. We'll actually this only goes back to twenty nine thousand nine. This is rather new one of those Yearbook school photo companies. That said. hey let's make this a day and so it's today the point of the day. Actually i guess share those high school or even the elementary school photos of yourself in social media so that people can really have a laugh. No you were cute really yeah. It's also international box wine day today and before you share those photos or look at other people's photos you might wanna grab some wine. Just 'cause there's going to be some comments just say it's national weiner schnitzel day today as well now. I'm not talking about the food place. Now that's the us food chain right now. No no not talking about that. I am talking about the thin breaded. Pan-fried veal cutlet is primarily from switzerland and austria and germany. It is actually the national dish of austria. Which means arnold schwarzenegger probably loves this. So if you eat a lot of weiner schnitzel. You'll probably look like arnold schwarzenegger. I'm just putting two and two together here and i think that's likely the largest schnitzel way two thousand six hundred sixty three pounds and it was made it a festival in germany back in september of twenty nineteen So there you go. Oh by the way it goes back to eighteen thirty one i. It's also national teddy bear day today but instead of talking about teddy bears i can tell you. They're named after teddy roosevelt or theodore roosevelt and the whole hunting story. And all that stuff. But no i i. I'm talking about very specific. Bears today specifically care bears. Yeah because it's care. Bears share your care day. Yeah that's an actual thing. Believe it or not yes so this is actually from the care. Bears website Care bears and that's a trademark. So i could get in trouble for this. Maybe i don't know share your care. Day is celebrated annually on september ninth care. Bears are on a mission to spread carrying and sharing around the world and encouraged fans to spread carrying sharing. Love friendship acceptance. Fun happiness to those that you love everyday so it's got a good thing behind it. I i should note and went to the care. Bears website to go. Look all of this stuff up right and what's interesting about it. Is they have a kid section and they have an adult section now the adult section before you get frightened there. It's it's just so that you can buy care bears for your kids. But when i saw that. I kinda took it the wrong way you know. I thought maybe they're going to check my age or something. make sure i'm eighteen Before i access the special care bears don't know anyway. Yeah they they started out as a greeting cards right they. They basically were little characters inside of greeting cards and as with everything in the eighties. They were super commercialized. They each have their own personality. There was also books and candy and stickers close. I remember somebody coming to. School is probably in their school photo. with a care bear on there. I don't know why. I remember that but sweatshirt of a care bear. I think i remember 'cause i might have been laughing a little bit back. Then i don't know anyway They were basically repping their own. Little personas count like seven wars. And they were small. I guess kind of like the seven dwarfs. Maybe that's where they got the idea. I don't know why they did. Do movies The interesting one about their movies was the care. Bears movie to it featured a young girl who sold her soul to a shape shifting demon. That's a kids movie She did that so that she could be better at sports. And by the way. I should mention she was killed in the movie by the demon slayer bear. Okay i made that last part but that would have been a cool ending right. Yeah okay after the adult section remark and the demon bear thing. I don't think the care bears are going to be happy that i'm talking about today. Let's move on shall we. Let's move on to our historic events of the day and we start in seventeen ninety one washington. Dc the capital got its name. Yeah now okay. So washington dc actually would love to become a state by the way. Why well okay. Let's get into that. There's first of all. They're several hurdles that they're going to have to jump through before they can become a state now last year the house actually voted to allow dc to become a state. But that's as far as the got the okay the real question here is why do they want to become a state. Will currently congress essentially controls the local budget for them they also Give them very little say in just about anything and they have very little say in what the country does because yes they've got a congressional rep but that rep can't vote. Yeah it's a nonvoting rep. She can introduce bills and things like abbott. that's it. She can't actually vote on anything so their license plate there. They say taxation without representation so really. It's small area right. it's a city. How're you gonna turn the city into a state but if you think about this state would actually have more people in it than vermont and wyoming. So it's got about seven hundred thousand people and actually alaska only has seven hundred forty thousand people so it would be a pretty decent size as far as population goes. So what's the big deal. Why can't it just become a state will see they would get two senate seats Voting rights would happen in the house and that would perhaps shift control of both the house and the senate because dc is a blue area so it would be a blue state so therefore republicans are very happy about this whole thing. So the chances of this happening. I think it's pretty slim at least right now but if things change then perhaps we will see a difference in some point. Maybe they will get the statehood that they have been asking for for a really really long time. Speaking of statehood will california was admitted as a state on this day in eighteen fifty. Yeah california became the thirty first. Us state now. Let's you know whenever. I talk about a state becoming a state. I always like to give details about that particular state and this one. I actually live it. So i can tell you firsthand. What's going on here in california. Well there's forty million people in california and sometimes all of those people are on the freeway the same freeway in los angeles. Yeah we have five hundred faultlines here in california and that's why we're known for earthquakes. Four thousand seven hundred wineries and that's why we're known for wine. We've got movie studios national parks national forests out. I should say that many of those national forests are closed. Actually all of them are right. Now because of fire concerns so yeah. There's some bad things here in california. Like for instance. We're a big state which might give us political power. We've got that political power but.

"Can get more people vaccinated. I don't think you're gonna see a lot of pushback to that. Except for that part at the beginning where he says now. I know it doesn't sound fair if you've already been vaccinated because what that does is saying like all right if you waited and you're lazy or if you're getting rewarded for that and the people who already got vaccinated. What do they get safety of. Not getting chandresh in garnished and having to wear masks still. Apparently well a lot of people. Are you know yeah. Starting to reintroduce the mass in fact on capitol hill. Us capitol police are now being ordered to arrest visitors and staff who refused to wear a mask on the house side of the capitol complex because the house of representatives now has to wear a mask like this came down from now. This is interesting because something arrest people. We literally have a masked police now instead of just saying. Ma'am could you just please put the mask up over your nose right. There's a congressman. Dan crenshaw from texas house. They're trying to find us in jail us. If we're not wearing a mask did you. People are crazy you can tell. He's worked up and then nancy mace from south carolina congresswoman. I can think of no worse incentive than telling the american people that if you're vaccinated and you you must still wear a mask. This is the catching the flour with vinegar to me. This solution by wrestling like this. This is only gonna cause the divide. And i told this i think to your dave off the air yesterday. My biggest issue with this whole cd. Where mask if you've been even if you've been vaccinated thing is that it's just going to d- incentivize those who haven't been vaccinated from getting vaccinated because they're going to say well. Why do i need to if. I have to wear a mask. It's just causing more problems in my opinion governor Gop's representative steve scalise claim. The enforcement came directly from nancy. Pelosi saying this isn't about science. It's about power and control. In fact things were crazy. In congress on wednesday this is taking it too far and they are in beaubourg a republican out of colorado through a mask at a democratic staffer come on a democrat and republican got in several shouting matches about the republicans vaccination status off the house floor and the speaker of the house called her. Gop counterpart or moron for criticizing the new mass guidance. And this was all before lunch. Can you imagine how the rest of the day went. It's it's going to be as long as the cdc is putting this guideline into effect and as long as this is the environment that we're gonna see crap like this and lauren bogart. I'm sorry she was acting like a child. You don't throw a mascot. Another fellow congressman. Nancy pelosi calling her moron. That's childish to this. This is recess behavior. I was gonna say they all need to take their toys and go home a time out. It's ridiculous meantime. The cdc has yet to release the data behind its decision with its new mass guidance policy the new york city health and hospitals president and ceo mitchell cast said wednesday while the cdc issued their guidance. Yesterday they have not yet released their scientific reports on the data that underlies their recommendation. Think this kind of goes to what steve scalise was saying where you just read what. He said a second ago where he said. This isn't about science. It's about power. And i think most people who are looking at this saying all right cool. Let's let's follow the science. Let's follow the science. The cdc isn't saying anything we were shell wolinsky said it's rare that vaccinated people could get the disease or spread it. Well it's five percent brought me. We talked to our dr benjamin new. Yeah and he said he wasn't surprised. When some of the democrats that left austin and went to dc came down with it was about six of them. He said that was about five percent. And that's what's going to happen. I mean this. This vaccine isn't one hundred percent so there are going to be breakthrough cases. But you're not going to end up on a ventilator in a hospit- that's the that's the big difference is that it's a much more contained. A cannot contain controlled less serious version of the virus for those who've been vaccinated. Yeah meantime a lot of school. Districts are at least in texas. I know teachers etc not. Happy that Mass won't be mandatory when students returned to school in the fall. And there's a florida county school board. That actually voted on wednesday to require mouse for students. Directly conflicting with the governor stance at school should not impose mandates. Yeah good luck with that. That's going to go to court. Oh yeah that is one hundred percent going to go to court. And we're not going to see the end of this story for a while. I think i don't know if we'll see something like this texas because the governor has signed an executive order and i don't remember if it went through the legislature if it was just an executive order saying you can't do this schools are you cannot governor. Florida right declared his well. Yeah so interesting to see if there are any school districts in texas that go against that order right and like you say it's going to end up working. Its way through the court. System meantime attorney. General merrick garland urged texas governor. Greg abbott to reverse his executive order aiming to restrict migration at the border following a rise in kovic nineteen cases. Yeah mirror garland called abbot's order dangerous and unlawful. The executive order came wednesday. This letter came yesterday. Here's the exact quote from the letter. From merrick garland. The order violates federal law and numerous respects and texas cannot lawfully enforce the executive order against any federal official or private parties working in the us basically when the governor said hey. You can't come to the country because you might have cova mayor garland saying you can't do that but but that's not to let sick people in the infect. Everyone else that's okay. That's the double standard here from the biden administration when it comes to their border policy and their cova policy. They're not congruent. they completely conflict. You can't let all of these people in sure. We can argue immigration all day. If you want to let all these people in fine i disagree. Do it a different way. That's beside the point. I let them all in and they're going to be sick and you can't test him. You can't vaccinate them. And then you're like wire are cova cases going up. Well only come in. Since israel meantime became the first nation to approve. Covert booster shots for part of its population. Starting sunday anywhere in the country. Older than sixty who received their initial vaccination. At least five months ago can get another dose from visor. The nation's main vaccine supplier so they're hoping that this will quiet down the delta variant. I guess what we'll have to see is over the next few weeks after. These boosters are administered. what the numbers are. Because israel has seen a spike in case aren't haven't they like the us and another places around the world with his delta variant. I was reading an article in. I forget where. I was reading it but it was saying that people in the us are now going to try to get a third shot. So they're going to places that wouldn't necessarily know they had the first to get it already. Got them dern. And they're going to be like i haven't gotten it johnson and johnson or whatever so they can get to me. That's dangerous and that's the thing you got to remember about the vaccine..

"The these horrific events. Did it appear to you as it did too many that well it appeared as though the rioters were granted access to the capital by the officers. That were supposed to protect it all right. Let's back this up here. Let's not get this twisted okay. You know.

He was actually interviewed on. Nbc's today show just yesterday morning. I was glued to it. Because here's what he had to say about the appearance. That rioters were granted access to the building to go in. And just ransack the building and caused mayhem and sadly as a result of all of that five people died former. Us capitol police chief terrance gainer. He said yesterday on the today show. He wants to give police the benefit of the doubt and hopes that they were attempting to de escalate the reprehensible events at the capital wednesday when they appeared to lack rioters in side the people's house. Here's what he had to say. Sometimes when you don't have enough personnel you can not stand and fight a large crowd like that noting something that was readily apparent to even the most casual observer noting the fact that there were not enough law enforcement personnel on scene now in the midst of the riott videos surface police appearing to let protesters inside the building. One video appeared. And you have to remember. You've got gotta keep these videos in context a simple. A grabbed screen grabbed from.

Now gainer churn Served as capital police chief from two thousand to two thousand six. He was the senate sergeant at arms. He did Cut to the chase saying that. The police handling of the situation was quote. A failure and quote raises a lot of questions. He went on to say. Clearly there's failures. There has to be a lot of questions asked and answers. Given what is very clear. Is that the police underestimated the violent crowd and the size of it and they over estimated their ability to control it. Now you had capitol police chief. Stephen sunde.

"Is it accurate to describe trump supporters as this homogeneous entity that we all think the same that we all share the same ideas about the trump administration. Could it be argued that it's indeed disingenuous for us to be described. And yeah i count myself as a trump supporter. I am disappointed in his actions on wednesday. I'm particularly disappointed at that as referred to it rather tepid call for the protesters to step down but yet i still acknowledge the many accomplishments where he did in fact disruptor though he was he did in fact put the needs of the american people. I owe you might say what about his actions on covert nineteen to which i would counter. Well what about some of the opponent actions of the more democrat leaning in cities and states and municipalities across the country. The government the governor's for example that are all in lockdowns that have no scientific evidence to support their effectiveness during a time of pandemic. So let's just set the argument about the pandemic aside. What do you say about cove. Nineteen because i think there have been a multitude of failures all around. And i get it. It's virus it mutates as we learn more about the virus the science changes but there have been considerable of failures that have had long term impact on so many of us across the country not only from a public health standpoint indeed from a mental health standpoint as we have seen suicide skyrockets substance abuse increase. Sadly we've seen Domestic violence cases child abuse increased as a result of these nonscientific lockdowns and restrictions but again to characterize those who voted for trump as this one homogeneous bloc is ridiculous to me. It goes back to when hillary Clinton i called trump supporters. The basket of deplorables because it makes no sense whatsoever but perhaps that is. The entire crux of this conversation is that we need to get away from. It could.

"Well it's we're a little bit still shell shell-shocked daren't we and bit aghast at the reprehensible events that took place at the capitol peaceful protest is one thing but when it disintegrates into mob rule in two out of control violence in which now five have lost their lives including a member of the capitol police. Well isn't that a time for us to just take a step back and perhaps reflect. Now here's where. I find it kind of interesting. No surprise that you've got chuck schumer and nancy pelosi wanting to invoke the twenty fifth amendment. And well basically do what they've wanted to do from the moment that Well then candidate. Trump came down that gilded escalator in trump tower. They were calling for his impeachment before the man was even inaugurated so basically they want to erase. The trump presidency comes as no surprise that there are calls for that and again round two of impeachment if the utilization of twenty fifth amendment doesn't accomplish their goals you even have a representative adam kin zinger. He's a republican Out of illinois. He's emerged as a leading. Gop critic of trump publicly calling for officials to invoke the twenty fifth amendment to remove the president from office in this all came down after my show wrapped up yesterday morning but again it setting up a very dangerous paradigm basically threatening to make the republicans rather irrelevant for a generation this as you have republicans jumping on board essentially saying yes Let's just a race any memory of a president. Donald trump essentially and this is a topic of some conversation. And probably some disagreements and some debate. But we're running the risk here of making the republican party once again a non-starter for the better part of a generation if this should transpire in this manner essentially sending the republican party out into the wilderness and is that the solution you tell me nine seven three five three thirteen ten. drop me. A text thirteen ten k. k. A text line so you've got the gop and we had the opportunity to spend a little bit of time chatting with congressman. Ken buck yesterday. Talking about the impact and the negative results that far too many years of incendiary rhetoric has had on this nation only widening the divide in this nation so begs. The question are we at a pivotal moment in history. Do we have the capability to return to a time where we can learn to agree green and we can disagree without being disagreeable and perhaps get back to some core values that have made this nation so.

"So all of these developments not only highlight of very unsettled time in this nation but the score the very real need that we all take a very deep breath perhaps we take a step back. And as congressman. Ken bach told us yesterday. Saying that yes he to fee- feels that he had some role to play in terms of the rhetoric that we have heard not only over the past presidential run but indeed over the past four years that it's time for all of us to just take a step back and kind of cool our jets think about where we are as a nation. Think about the unrest and are we. Becoming a nation primarily controlled bide mob rule and everything that that entails are some protests more equal than others. What have we seen unfold particularly over the rockets past year when you had all of the protests in the name of social justice obstensibly peaceful protest that sadly were relegated to destructive ones. And how long did it take the democrats to cry the violence in many of our major urban cities when you look at the occupation for example of chas and chop when you look at the totally understandable calls for social justice to take a look at our system of justice that's fine but his looting and rioting and burning down cities is that the pathway to peace and social justice now we all know the answer to that violence only begets violence and it accomplishes absolutely nothing. But perhaps as we reflect on the events of wednesday at the capitol as. I don't know about your reaction to it but i was glued to the live coverage of that and i didn't recognize this america now of course on both sides of the aisle and all the talking heads across cable news network saying this isn't too we are repeating that again and again as if that platitude was some sort of solution to what we were seeing on wednesday i would sadly submit to you that indeed. That's what we have become.

"Now before we get to one of the arguments here and by the way these are the kinds of things they could spread online and spread like wildfire. And nobody verifies these things so at least i haven't seen it to see me. Who knows maybe somebody has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is true. But there's a lot that happens and before anything's verified it's already taken root and it's everywhere. The claim is that the in the art the claim that there are antifa people that infiltrated this. I completely believe based on the facts and the fact that that's what they said in the past but the claim is that the people that did infiltrate these groups said that they would be dressed as maga- but that they would wear their maga- hats backwards to show the others that that was them.

An apparent protest and show support for the Ferguson protests. This was all over cable news a Saint Louis Police Union petitioned the NFL to discipline the players and there was even talk about whether that would happen ultimately, it didn't. But the NFL with this season plans to paint end racism on its playing fields expressed no support for the players 'cause at the time. So many people have reached out to me.

At the result of. Those privileges. It brings America to a new low. It's hard and the backdrop to this is the Wisconsin governor.

Not, only in a city of Kenosha in the state of Wisconsin, they're calling for a dialogue there needs to be some type of change. Then it happens from the top down, it happens from the chief of police in Kenosha county standing up and saying these officers where he no rogue, they did not follow the standard operating procedures.

"Seven news and in Washington DC where they worked over the weekend trying to pass something worked again at its two day Michael Bauer though there was a bit of a hold up over the weekend it was by Democrats well it it wasn't it was Democrats but it wasn't just Democrats are also some Republicans holding up we had a US Senate but we need to get sixty votes but he only ended up getting forty seven votes and to be fair if you took a couple of the senators who are self quarantining or in the case of rand Paul actually was diagnosed as having coronavirus eating you added those to make his still been reached the sixty point both that you needed to get in order to pass the one point six trillion dollar emergency rescue package so there are other Republicans questioning things in the two big things that seem to be on the table on the Republican technically the bipartisan Republican and democratic side if the first one which goes directly against what president trump indicated which is he did not want to give a bailout bailout to any corporations or companies that would then use that bailout money to re buy their stocks and in doing so raise their stock value so that the officers of those companies could get their bonuses that's as it wanted to avoid but here in this bill there all written into it it suggests that companies could reach out to treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin about buying back stock and you're seeing people the cynical what what what no no no we did that before it didn't go over well we want the companies to put this into every last bit of a their fledgling company during these tough times and the workers that work for them so let's put all of that together with the boarding directly says you are not allowed to use this funding on any sort of bail out for any sort of a buy back up your stock that's the first thing that is that Democrats are really pushing hard right now for your extension on some of the things that are included in this bill like for instance it offers up a three month time frame for we look for unemployment insurance and they would like to see that extended out to about a six month time frame because I have a feeling this is going to go beyond the three month limited in that but then what you don't want to do that three months have and there are kids are hurting for money lets you have another debate here and hold up an agreement then go to the negotiating process have a delay in getting people money that they're going to need to get in the same area they're offering up seventy five billion dollars for hospitals who are kind of already behind the eight ball now and some of these bigger cities with the infected coming in there and then try to take care of people so the one thing the Democrats don't want to have happen is we get three months down the right or left it could be two months down the road and you get to the point where hospitals are going we need more money and you got what we got to wait and figure this out we've got to get to a point where we go through the negotiation process again so there's a hope that there will be a longer term process in in the line and in the pot going forward here and then same simply changing up some of which in regards to bailouts could make this all a little bit better for all sides again neither side wants to be the side that's responsible for not getting these checks out the people but they want to make sure that this is done the correct way and I can I can understand that I really can but that at the same time now how how are they coping with the the syquest well with with some of their members I mean that the other members not being allowed by north district Senate rule you have to be on the Florida vote yeah that that seems to be the weather's going at least when you're looking at the told you can't do with the remote voting or anything you have to be there in order for it to happen in and so when you're losing five or six of those votes it does sort of take a toll again those five or six wouldn't have gotten any closer we got closer but certainly wouldn't reach the sixty point mark to get it and I think you could legitimately have if you had some wording in there down the right cards to the bail out portion of the thing companies and if you're thinking more along the lines for the companies in the workers in mind rather than the the officers of those companies I think you could probably even get a unanimous vote on this front but it shouldn't this is I think about the most partisan to go she ation but I think I have ever seen go down in that there is a deadline here you know you want to get these checks out the people sooner rather than later and certainly before you have a situation where unemployment numbers could be reaching an all time high you want to get these things out there to show that you're working hard for the American public and not strife within it over for the partisan element of this which let's face it that's what Washington DC does well they have to break themselves without norm well and then I. morning where's all this money coming from yeah I mean if you had the announcement today saying that the fed would buy back the unlimited amount of government backed debt to settle markets over seven hundred billion dollars in regards to that it is going to be take a be a good portion of those but again this is this is a situation where according to our government we have the ability and the funding to do this kind of work were you looking at one point I get what the one point six trillion dollars we have the ability to do it I I think you know down the back credit card bill is going to act up and I don't know exactly how that's going to happen but I'm sure there will be some level of buy back portion from these companies once things get up and running again that they'll have to pay back order to get that that funding back to normal if you well well it's gonna be a while before everything gets back to normal but I I hear what you're saying Michael Bauer thank you.

"Partnership institute in Washington DC. See my lips from frozen together for just a moment. Just in sympathy with the polar vortex. She's back in DC and checking things out on Capitol Hill where they're not playing along nicely right now today they ticked off the president. Even the Republicans some of them not getting serious about this negotiation. Trump says wall or nothing not opened the physical barrier funding. If you're not doing you gotta you gotta do it the way I want to do it or or we're going to run into this again February fifteenth two weeks from tomorrow. And we're back to a threat of a shutdown or maybe he decides to come in there with a an emergency declaration saying I'm gonna start doing it. Anyway, we'll pull money from mex-, y and z whatever defense department what have you? And then let the opposition find it out of the courts. That might actually be interesting. He may make his point that he's tried every which way and even someone his own cider playing the way he'd like it to be now, the president's not king and that sometimes comes as a surprise and shock to presidents. But it's interesting, and they're just now in the last couple of days really get into this seriously talking about it, even though it was such an urgent thing last Friday. When it was solved at least for three weeks after I keep telling you, they're not going to solve this. If if you think that somehow they're going to come to an agreement in Washington that puts this as they say off the table this being another government shutdown. This was what the twenty first and the longest one, but they're gonna come more frequently every time they get some kind of an agreement. It's going to be a short term agreement because there are political forces and actually on both sides that would love to have this drama every few months all the way up to twenty twenty because in both sides can work their key issues. Then you follow the fundraising? Right. Meanwhile, a lot of America is freezing. Like they've never frozen before today. Here's the governor. Matt Bevin the governor in Kentucky. Who is concerned that some schools in Louisville in his own state? There were closing due to bitter cold weather now they got down to minus twenty in Louisville yesterday. And he just say you ought to suck it up and get the school anyway is getting soft after Louisville area schools closed because of cold governor Matt Bevin made the comment Tuesday. During interview with Terry minors on NewsRadio eight forty w h s take a listen. Here's a clip is better to air on the side of being safe. And I am being only slightly facetious. But it does concern me a little bit that in America on this and any number of other fronts were sending messages to our young people that if life is hard you can curl up in the fetal position somewhere in a warm place and just wait till it stops being hard, and that just isn't reality wind chill. Temperatures in the Louisville area were expected to drop as low as minus twenty degrees. Below zero. I agree with you there. Okay. Thank you very much. Appreciate you taking more time than I allotted for either. I mean that only minus twenty windshield in Louisville. I mentioned earlier my mom back in our official polar vortex reporter Inga there in Rockford Illinois, my old hometown. Said on their thermometer this morning, I guess was the official Rockford temperature which I think is taken to the airport. There minus thirty at six AM today. Now, that's not a wind chill. Yeah, they close the schools with that some areas that are in the deep freeze. Well, like in DC, which is hard to believe and you consider all the hot air over there in Capitol Hill. You would assume that that alone with the huffing and puffing in the capitol building and elsewhere all the lobbyists running around that that would bring the temperature up any day. But it's been like twenty or so above zero there, but they're going to be having sixty five degree weather next week. So it's still a big big chill map that is still going on smashing records all over the place and about the governor there in Kentucky saying that America's going soft. When you don't send the kids to school because it was what was their twenty below zero wind chill in Louisville. Now contrast that with what we do here in San Diego. We still have a whole lot of classrooms, San Diego unified, for example, that are not yet air conditioned. So we get heat waves. And it'll be brutally hot. They go. The other way, you stay you keep going to school, but I'm losing consciousness go to school. Anyway, you know, why? Because unless you're botox to use the to to quote, the great theologian Forrest Gump. They've you don't have your buttocks. In the seats. Then the money's not coming in from the usual coffers. Outside state and fat. And all that. That's what they just get them into the seats. Keep them there. Even if your kids can't breathe because too hot. So we go the other way somewhere in the middle is the I know every parent is at why in my day, we had to March to school barefooted like Washington at Valley Forge that's how dedicated to education, those are the days, and we embellish does. Well, I may have been times. But everybody does it. Times. To walk to school in blazing heat. Freezing cold locust plagues. Whatever. So there's that more coming up in this whole border thing Meghan, Trump says Republicans are wasting time because they're not negotiating the way. They should Democrats have a brand new border plan. They've thrown into the mix, but there's no money for border security in terms of a.
