"And maybe they be happy for what? John Baxter. This is John Better show Sebastian Gorka of America. First his radio program across the nation on the Salem network, and we turn to Russia Gate. Okay. Russia Gay days. Okay, Obama Gate. This is about an abuse of power that the attorney General, Mr Barr said he has signed US attorneys. I'm told they're now five of them to pursue the facts where they take them not only for origin but also for something the attorney general has indicated, most recently in testimony To find out what this abuse of power meant before the election going back before 2016 especially with regards surveillance and unmasking. Said the testimony by the under sworn testimony by the deputy attorney general for Barack Obama, Sally Yates being questioned by Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Revealed very little that nest. Sally Yates had not said before, in other testimony, all of them under oath, and I believe that that was correct if she is on attorney as I believe she is, and she has attorneys. They advised her. Don't change your testimony. But gosh said when Sally Yates very carefully told us she didn't know anything about the Logan Act being brought up in the January 5th meeting. She didn't know anything about people abusing General Flynn. She thought it was all in the course of her duty and that she really didn't know why it wass that they gave her a FISA document to sign that had false. False remarks on it. She didn't seem to know much about anything. As the deputy attorney general, I would say that she was mostly not available. No. And the fact alone that we now have confirmed by DOJ documents that it was incumbent president was Barrack Obama, who had to inform the deputy attorney general about the crossfire. Hurricane surveillance off the incoming national security advisor is absolutely stunning. You're right, John. We didn't learn anything really new at Senator Lindsey Graham's hearing. But the choice of words is always interesting, not spend that she agreed with the chairman and said yes. James Comey could be described as having gone rogue in his surveillance of General Flynn. Now we knew that that's not new. That's not newsworthy. But the fact that she saying it at a Senate hearing is interesting. And maybe She's preparing the ground work for upcoming potential indictments on announcements by U. S Attorney Durham and the new attorney general. Right, Right. What we have here is a mystery now. Puzzle. Don't do the American people want this mystery solved before Election Day, or have we already made up her mind? You know, one of the one of the witty remarks that Richard Nixon made after the election of 72. And when they brought up to him that Watergate costs us a 1,000,000 votes. I think that's what one of his counsellors told him. He looked over. And he said was I supposed to win by six million? I mean, it was. It was a witty remark. I don't remember what his margin was, but it was heavy. He won a big election over Mr McGovern. I'm wondering if the American people have already taken into account that there was abuse of power and that they will vote without really getting too involved in what we were what we might learn between now and election day. I don't think so. I think we need tohave the confirmation where 88 days out from the election, there are internal regulations and traditions that one dozen drop reported indictment of a political nature within 60 days of an election. We have tohave Information even if it's just the first version of the true history of what happened with the first ever try agency intelligence operation against the political campaign in U. S history, So no, I think the American people are still owed a large chunk off the story, which has yet to be confirmed by official sources, and which goes all the way up. To the top of the Obama White House That is very similar to remarks that the attorney general has made the American people need to hear this story about Joe Biden, candidate presumptive candidate of the Democratic Party. I was surprised. I was surprised that he's not going to Milwaukee. I thought that Joe, this is the capstone of your political career. It is safe to go to Milwaukee. You're not at risk. You're inside security all the time. What do you make of the fact that he doesn't want to go there and make a speech on an empty stage to an empty room, But it still would be in Milwaukee. Why not? Well, he's making speeches already in an empty room, so we know that it's not because of the ostensible reason he's giving. It's alive the falsehood. I think the campaign realizes that his debates against President Trump, My old boss will be disastrous, and they're setting the stage for a refusal for the first time, I believe since the founding of the Republic for the two presidential candidates. Not to debate each other in front of the American people so that they can make an informed decision. So I think this is just getting ready for the denial of the will of the American people to hear Joe Biden live debate the current incumbent off the White House, and it's an outrage. Let me translate. In other words. By not going to Milwaukee. He's established the precedent that he won't go to the site of the 1st 2nd and third debate to debate with the president, and he might offer the alternative of staying in his Delaware home. And debating the president. By what video in some fashion. I think they'll make that offer. But I think the White House and the president will rightly refused. But I think that I think that is the expectation they will offer. A video debate, which is a book, of course, is just absolutely unacceptable. Underlining. This is thie doubts that have been raised consistently for months about Joe Biden's health. He's not improving those Those who doubt by continuing to come up with way clever ways to get out of meeting the American people, and also his remarks are increasingly vague. He's very vague about what he is about who he is. Eyes. It's strange sub. This is another matter where I think the American people have already made a decision. They know that the American people assume there are troubles with Joe Biden. And those troubles they'll have to vote on Election Day. I can't believe we're going to learn anymore, except as you say he'll get out of the debates. Then, In the last few weeks, we have seen a man who has been in politics of 47 years. Eight years in the White House with vice president say the following things in managed interviews, friendly interviews. Number one. If you're not voting for me, you're not black two days ago. Challenging a black interviewer in a friendly interview. When asked, Are you cognitively sound? Are you taking regular tests for your cognitive capacity? He retorts by saying Are you a junkie, a junkie John to the interviewer on then the latest that we reported today on in my show, he said. He said that the man who's called his fellow segregationist senators, fine gentleman, he said. Hispanics are far more diverse part of America than the black population. It's stunning John. This is why he can't be allowed out of the basement by his campaign managers because he is absolutely unfit to debate on the issues of the day so and if a Republican candidate And make comments like that the campaign would be over. Sebastian Gorka America first is the radio program on Salem Network. I'm John Bachelor, takes.

"Programme coming up in 16 minutes. We will hand it off to live It always like this. Especially troubling times will look forward to that. But we've got to discuss between now and then and let's get right to it, Shall we? Joining us right now He's a congressman representing the fifth District of Arizona. He gets toe hang out every day in the house of Representatives and see Nancy Pelosi do her thing, which is, you know, whatever. Alexander because of Cortez, and don Omar, tell her to do. He is representative Andy Biggs Congressman. Thanks for joining us. Hey, my pleasure before Oh, did we? Well, you're here now. Good time, but it's a beautiful thing. I I want to ask you something. You're a great article in the Washington Examiner about the Democrats behavior with regard to William Bar, the attorney general who would use that before. Jerry Nadler Judiciary Committee. First of all, why don't you just take it from there? Give us a little bit of your reaction to what you saw there. What? What we saw was, I view it as an incredible abusive power but by people who have no sense of decorum, nose and no sense of shame. This just vitriolic attack against Attorney General Bar. It was nothing short of a political circus. I mean that there were things legitimately. You've gotto ask with regard to oversight, but what they would do is they would ask you question when he started answering to it immediately. Use a procedural move to prevent it from even answering. It was ridiculous. It was that was the whole reclaiming my time Reclaiming my time claiming my time thing. Yeah, exactly. It's a theme for a great T shirt. Ahh, it's a bad move for Congress because They they displayed in my opinion on arrogance and ignorance. But if you were watching that you just had to be embarrassed, it was cringe worthy. And it and it makes Nancy Pelosi as she looks smarter than than than you would think, because she's the one who took the impeachment hearing away from Navin and gave it to shift and we see why every time he gets a hearing, whether it's the Mueller hearing with this He loses absolute control. I mean, just ah, really pitiful job running a hearing and managing it managing a committee hearing and it's terrible. You just well, and you make the case that this is this is a great example of what happens when you put the left in charge of things. I mean, if this is how they run a committee in the house than what will it be like when they run the Senate or for that matter of the executive branch of government? No, That's exactly right. My point is, along with that is inherent in leftism, the leftist movement there Their project is a sense of authoritarianism. And so On learning. I mean, this if you want to know what the left is doing, just always see what they're calling people what they're saying. Other people doing and so they have this authoritarian vent. And they abused people and no sense of humanity, notions of generosity of spirit. And quite frankly, they will abuse their power. Uh, nine times out of 10 was being with representative Andy Biggs of Arizona. And I just want to follow up on this. Ah, bit with you with regard to the Democrats behavior with Attorney General Bar because I'd like to contrast it with what we saw yesterday with Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, who I think deserved some pretty tough grilling, in my opinion. Frankly, when you saw Lindsey Graham when you when you saw the Republicans on that panel, treat her in such a dignified and respectful and statesmanlike way. I wonder what should the lesson be? Here? Do do we sit the We conservatives just sit on the sidelines and conduct ourselves in this respectful, dignified diplomatic and statesmanlike way. Hoping and praying that Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler and Senator Hirono and all the people who Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, who dragged Brett Kavanaugh's name through the slime, We just hope and pray that they step up and they act dignified as well. Or is it about time? Maybe Congressman Biggs that we start fighting fire with fire and we treat hostile witnesses the way they treat to someone dignified, like attorney General Bar? Looks like my thought on this is you're never going to see the other side. Ah, treat people, as I say, with civility and decorum, that's that's just not gonna happen. I think you could be civil but extremely firm. Extremely probing you, Khun Demand answers. Look, I've tried. I've tried literally hundreds of cases. You can be outraged on DH, manage your vocabulary and let people answer and and get to the correct answer. That's what this is all about. You want to get the truth out. And when you conduct yourself away, the Democrats did. You're not going to get it. And if you're too milk toast. You're not going to get it. You have got to be direct. You've got to be firm. But you Khun B. You could be civil. I mean, you can be what you Khun demand answers and get those answers And I feel sometimes the Democrats don't care about the answer. They're just They're just in it for theater. And I think sometimes My colleagues on our side of the aisle were afraid to ask the tough questions. You can ask the tough questions. You don't have to be an idiot about it. Representative Biggs. I know you spend most of your time looking at the issues that are affecting our district in Arizona. But being here in D. C. You can't help but notice the issue with the shutting down of schools here in such a unilateral and arbitrary way on even in Montgomery County, Maryland. Now we just spoke with a parent who's suing the county because that county has even shut down private schools. Despite Governor Hogan's admonition. Is there anything the federal government? Khun do here to step in? And and maybe maybe withhold federal funding through the education Department for school districts that aren't doing their job and actually educating Children? That is our best leverage. Uh, people responded cities and states and school destruction no different. They get money from the feds. In fact, in Arizona, if you go to the trouble of education Most of those employees are co effectively co opted or paid for by by the federal government, So you just need to say, Look, you're not going to open up schools were not going to give you money. And I think the other thing, too is I've entered this piece of legislation previous to this, but Rand politics introduced one. I think this's powerful. It's okay. We're going to withhold the money unless you tag it on the back of kids. On the parents get to pick where they want to go because believe me, their charters and privates that want to open up and are ready to open up and they have mitigated the risk. And there's going to be traditional public school districts that want to open up a CZ. Well, let him open up. Let that funding go there, but otherwise your best leverage is going to be withholding funding because this is This has reached Ah, ah, point of absurdity. Quite frankly. And also what reached the point of absurdity is this push? The Democrats are really engaged in to goto on all male in mail out balloting program where where the state will just send out arbitrarily a blank ballot every single person on the voter rolls even if they didn't request it on. And you know the potential is there with issues with the Postal Service as well as all of these blank ballots, just being out and available for whatever. Nefarious used that somebody might want to engage in. How are you? And of course, some states air being smart and not going down that road. How are you looking at this Election day now in November in terms of the chaos that might ensue afterwards, State by state where some states will have, you know a regular voting process, and we'll get our results that night or well into the night and they're going to be some states. Where we're waiting weeks until we know who won that state or who won the district for that matter. Yeah. I mean, that's right. It is going to be chaotic, and the problem that I see is that is that Congress the lefties in Congress there, they're partially holding up the relief package, the code relief package and I don't get anything else about that, unless you do. But they're partially wantto holding it up because they want to try the leverage on all male invalid with that said they know quite frankly that that's the way they can. They can win this election. I think they rendered they're beginning to understand that their candidate Joe Biden this week..

"In America where we're kind of we're outside of the Matrix. We were when Obama is in office and the left is happy. The media goes in lockstep with it, And they put us all in this sort of fantasy world where everything is right in the World Theater ministrations doing no wrong. Nothing bad happens right when when, when Democrats are in charge. We don't have a homeless problem We don't have. We don't have a violence. Problem way haven't environmental problem because that's their excuse Teo to destroy our economy right and dismay. Intell capitalism, But, yeah, the pandemics are just after thoughts. You know when women when Democrats are in charge, I actually think, though, that there is a level where that analogy doesn't work anymore because There is a new version of the Matrix that the left is trying to perpetuate. And that's what you see on TV Two plus two equals four. Right there was the old like like, like the old iteration of the Matrix from the left is what you just mentioned. It is Obama in office. The media is happy. Everything is fine. We're going to ignore anything bad going on because we live in. And you know, we were looking through rose colored glasses because a lesson charge. But now we have this other version that their perpetuating where everything is horrible and awful and wrong when it relates to all these things, and it's all amplified. And this is the new version of the Matrix that they want you to live in right now. It's frightening when you think about it. I was watching a video and I took some notes. We'll talk about it later. Steve Dees, the talk show host as the latest all the latest covert numbers and their their their astonishing I mean, the numbers are truly are truly stunning. Right now, that's going to example right now. Currently, 0.7 Americans have covert 0.0 point seven Americans have Kobe among those that have died or sorry Among those who have covert that air, not in New York and New Jersey. It 0.3 of Americans 3% of Americans. Covitz 0.30 point 03 If you're not in New York and New Jersey I just mean it's a It's a long list of will share it with you later on, But it is gross. The data and the numbers out there do not warrant nor nor line up with the level of fear that people are expressing. Only 1.5% of Americans have tested positive in total for covert 19 1.5% testing positive of all Americans. Look at the world we're living in right now of people that have it. It's incredible. Let's go here. Sally Yates, former deputy attorney general told the Senate Judiciary Committee. Right and they get this falls into that category. This should be leading. That should have been leading news stories, right We're learning every every week. We learn more and more about the laws that were broken. I don't want to use the word corrupt because I don't think corrupt is strong enough. The law's the criminal activity that took place within Obama's Department of Justice that during the final a couple of months, final weeks leading up to the election and during the transition period, and yesterday was another one of those days, and I kept tuning into cable news trying to watch this hearing, and every time I flipped over it, it was another person talking about masks. They didn't even cover it. Oh, my gosh of us. I just missed it. It was so frustrating. So here is to take a listen to this to this piece of audio again when ah, this was again this attorney former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates to the Senate Judiciary Committee. When the FBI interviewed the incoming national security advisor Michael Flynn on January 2017 it was done without her authorization. Listen to this exchange of the phone call. This was a counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign's potential relationship with the Russians. That makes no sense. So January the fourth they recommend to drop Flynn. They mentioned the Logan Act and you advised against prosecuting the Logan Act. Is that true? He never made an official decision about whether we're going to do it, But I think it was unlikely. Certainly unlikely that prosecution that's not her. Yes, Yes. So it was a counterintelligence. Okay, Here's what I want to understand is the counter intelligence investigation that led to the interview you did authorize the interview is matter of fact, you wanted to go to the White House and tell them About the problem, didn't you? Trump. I thought that that was more media issue. And when you when you heard about the interview, you got upset, didn't you? I was upset that Director Comey didn't coordinate that with Doesn't acted unilaterally. Yes, I wass okay that Comey go rogue. You could use that term. It did Comey go rogue Lindsey Graham, and you use that term. She says you could use that term. Yes, but But it was called me guys. Here is the best. Yeah. He was the destinies just standing up for America. Suddenly all those all those ridiculous, stupid, idiotic tweets from the morons Just the morons that use the hashtag TC aunty, come flooding back into my brain Talk Tic tac time ticking down it again in a world where there was fair coverage, absent bias. This would be headlines within the other headlines juxtaposed with the relevant context as to how this investigation was conducted, and there are still people out there that will try to argue and that will dig their heels in and claim until the sun goes down that this was not a political hatchet job of an investigation. Nobody thought nobody involved in the investigation. Nobody that had any access to any of the information Early on, actually thought there was any collusion and we have them on record, saying that this is not just drew some Yahoo on the radio, saying that they are on the record, saying that they did not think there was any collusion during during the during the election between the Trump campaign and Russia. But they went ahead with it anyway, through a bunch of people in jail that didn't deserve to go to jail wasted millions of millions of dollars and two years of Americans lives and you know, and just to highlight again that The amount of and we'll talk about this because there's a there's a There's relevancy to some news that we have in the eight o'clock hour over the Minneapolis Ah Charter commission, blocking the proposal to defund the Police department and what the Minneapolis City Council has done. But the point I wanted to make is theater mount of time and energy..

El Paso shooting is being treated as a case of 'domestic terrorism'
"So as investigations both into el Paso Texas and date Ohio or going on especially el Paso with this man had a manifesto Michael Bauer joins us from NBC news radio and it was clear that he did not like people that came from Mexico into our country and the manifesto was more than disturbing Michael it definitely was he he kind of pay tribute to the gunman who killed fifty one Muslims at two mosques in New Zealand earlier this year cited white supremacist theory which is known as the great replacement that theory holds that a lead are working to destroy the white race by replacing them with Hispanic immigrants and refugees and this was part of his motivation for why he drove some seven hundred miles from his home to el Paso to have this kind of shooting occur and then these these charges that but charges that they're working right now says in the FBI are looking at the to hate crimes in firearms charges both could carry death penalty sentence against this guy in and they are looking now officially at this as a domestic terrorism investigation you might even rob Rosenstein that the former deputy Attorney General over the weekend tweeted out the killing random civilians to suppress the to spray some political messages terrorism the F. B. I. classifies it as domestic terrorism but white terrorism is more precise many of the killers are lone wolf losers indoctrinated to hate through the internet just like Islamic terrorists so he's calling this even more specific element of domestic terrorism specifically why terrorism that is going to have to be addressed here about your hearing not just the democratic candidates but others in battle Rourke who is from el Paso sitting there talking with folks in el Paso coming off of his is democratic candidacy tour to to to stop and and and and and take care of people and visit folks who were in the hospital after the shooting indicating that he has concerns that this is exactly the kind of language in this manifesto the president is reiterating when he speaks to different events specifically ones aimed at immigration so big concerns from people that direction the president expected to talk about ten AM this morning so not sure if he's got a plan in place he wants to see implemented but supposedly the White House have been working on something all weekend long that's the I. director Christopher ray was getting go by Congress just a couple weeks ago on these types of issues interestingly enough he said that they really don't investigate ideology even if it's repugnant but if violence is that is it just always wait and see I thought the FBI would always kind of star detailing someone you know what whether it's at the dark web if you will or social media with this are kind of deal just to see kind of where their thoughts and what they're doing would be I think it's a I think there are red flag words phrases those kinds of things that pop up in because attention to be drawn to but I don't know if that necessarily means that there is a follow up outside of that day they'll they may look at it similar to a Facebook look at those kinds of things of those red flags are popped up or if they have users that are giving the morning side but like in this particular case with the guy that we're talking about here that shot no Paso he didn't post his manifesto two eight chant until minutes before you did the shooting so wasn't like it existed up there for a lengthy period of time that FBI investigators could look at it and then began an investigation on behind the scenes this guy may have prevented the shooting he didn't even posted until minutes before hand so I I don't know how much necessarily how much help is is brought from these kinds of red flags up I've suppose warnings will be good and and the ability to look into things good in the case of the Dayton shooter that guide reportedly had police taking him off of a school bus at one point time when he was in high school because it a kill list at a rate list for girls that at this point in time it's unclear why there was no further investigation or whether or not they had any call to pull this guy off the street certainly that would have been concerned about his legal purchases for arms if there were a red flag in his record but that didn't happen either good to talk with you thanks Michael for your time this morning Michael our
