And thanks for being with us and boy get crazy announced you because pretty soon We may be under military rule here in Arizona. They made up. They may not allow your little sound effects that that just may not be happening happening. Well, this is this is big time. So General Michael Flynn. You know him. He was He was a general Hey, was an administration the Obama administration? Obama let him go. E means high up, And then he went that he became a huge trump guy. He was supporting President Trump early in the election. Trump loved him. He went around campaigning with Trump all the stuff and President Trump named him his first national security adviser and Michael Flynn has As the record for the shortest term as national security advisor. The history of the United States, all right, but there was no getting 31 days. He did it, and the president had a firearm because he lied. He lied to the vice president, admitted to lying to the FBI and lie to the FBI's admitted that twice under oath that he lied to the FBI. So he said he didn't lie to the FBI. And now Trump is partner. But here's Michael Flynn is back out there and he's talking about the election. He's big on this election fraud stuff, no evidence of it by the way, but he's big on it. And Mike he's got an idea. For what President Trump should do. He could order within the swing states if he wanted to. He could take military capabilities and he could place him in those states and basically re run election in each of those states. I mean, it's not impressive that I mean these people out there talking about martial law is like it's Something that we've never done. We've done martial law has been instituted 64 times, So I'm not calling for that We have a constitutional process. We clearly have a constitutional process that has to be followed. I love that he's like, Hey, I have this really stupid idea, but it could totally work And then at the end he's like, but I'm not calling for that. I'm not. I'm not saying we should. Of course not. It's absolutely ridiculous, so he can. I want to make sure we understand what's going on right now, because I know there's a lot of people out there who are saying Look, there were something regularities. The election is fraud in this election. Why not investigate it? Why not do these things? But here's what I think we all really need to recognize what he's saying. That President Trump isn't Mike Flynn is saying that the president of United States would send the U. S military into six states including Arizona. We'll have military come in Arizona and have martial law. That means a suspension of our rights, a suspension of our rights. We're gonna disregard the election. We just had Brought all the votes that you and I and everybody else in Arizona just cast and rerun the election. What did we do it not because there's evidence of wrongdoing not because there's anything that happened. You know we wanted because they don't like the outcome. And I won't think about this for just a second if Obama had said that that if after if Obama had lost to Mitt Romney in 2012 and then said, Well, well, look who's going. I'm gonna send the military into Georgia and Iowa and Idaho and wherever he lost thanks rolling down camel back home, I could You imagine the reaction of that We have an armed insurrection, people would be bringing their guns out. And that's literally what these people are saying. This is what Mike was a general in the U. S military who was the national security advisor disgraced, But yes, it's incredible. He's a hero to some of these people. It's absolutely amazing. And when you say disgrace, you know this is going on in Arizona. President Trump between Michael Flynn met with the president of the United States in the Oval Office and talked about this on Friday suggested it, yes, but in but I'm not calling for it. No, that's what you just said that good. He's like, I'm not calling for it. I'm just suggesting it to the president. But he did call forward in the Oval Office because the reporting that's coming out is that Mark Meadows, the chief of staff and the White House counsel, They're in there pushing back and telling Trump. You can't do this. You can't decide I love it. Mark Meadows is now the voice of reason. Exactly. I mean, when did that happen? Mark? Meadows was now the voice of reason. So this is what's going on. So take this over to Arizona. Now, you know, people say, Well, how does this affect me? We're one of these swing states. One of very few. They're literally saying we're going to send troops in Arizona and overturn the law. And now you would think the Republican Party in Arizona would say, Well, wait a minute. We're not gonna do that Want the troops were all about our rights were all about protecting the vote. No, no. Kelly Ward, chairperson of the Republican Party, Steve, You know this is well as I do. She's saying, Uh, yeah, let's bring him in. We need martial law. She supports all this. Yeah, she basically retweeted, the Michael Flynn clip. And then Michael Flattery treated her saying, Hey, thanks for joining me. Basically, that's that's generally what happened. It's a fun little club and then on and then our own Geraldo Rivera. You know Geraldo, personal friend of the president. He's on Fox News. He's all over Fox News time out this stuff. Geraldo Rivera had a nice little comment. Hey, Salwa, Kelli Ward said, And he said something Colonel West was saying that there should be you know a union aside from the United States of America, so I thought that frankly, Allen West was sounding crazy. Now the neighboring state actually won over. In Arizona. Kelli Ward, the GOP chair person in Arizona is now saying basically the same thing. She's waiting for Trump President Trump to cross the Rubicon. This is absolutely lunatic fringe stuff. Donald Trump lost the election. Joe Biden won the damn election. Now, let's just move on from there. That's that's Geraldo Rivera. That's a fox guy. A trump Flender Trump supporter voted for times like when you say it's incredible, but he's right. This is lunatic fringe stuff. And you saw this over the weekend. Steve, the Crossing the Rubicon. You know what that refers to Yeah, I I heard Geraldo explain it earlier, and it was this like great history lesson in battle. It's all about The Roman Empire and Julius Caesar literally. Julius Caesar and Julius Caesar had this huge army outside of Rome and the Roman Senate and other people They were saying. Well, don't bring that in here if you bring if you if you cross this river And coming to Rome. It's gonna be a civil war. That's what your declaration of war that's what you're going to be causing. If you do that, and the river that he was in a cross to get into Rome, where it was was called. Rubicon, the Rubicon on that's the sea that I set you up well, so that's a plus. For me. That's the whole story. The Crossing the Rubicon means that the military's gonna come in and take over and that's when Rome became a dictatorship instead of a some sort of representative democracy, but some sort of represented form of government, and that's that's like that's what they're wanting here. So to see the head of the Republican Party in Arizona, Kelli Ward, Calling for the president to cross the Rubicon to throw out the votes of Arizonans and to redo.

Fauci expects tens of millions of coronavirus vaccine doses at start of 2021
"Actually saying millions. They're going to start receiving a vaccine in December. Joining us now is Michael Barr from our 24 7 network with all things vaccine. Good morning, Michael. Yeah. Good morning, Ron. And that's a good place to start because you've got the president who is officially called on the FDA commissioner Stephen Han to join him in the White House today and that since calling Han on the carpet And going to what I'm sure is going to be a grilling over why he hasn't moved faster to approve the Fizer Corona virus vaccine and that meeting's already kind of shaping up to be a little tense. Hunt issued a statement yesterday saying. Let me be clear our career. Scientists have to make a decision and they will take the time that is needed to make the right call on this important decision. What you're hearing out of the White House. Is that their center complaining the FDA is not working around the clock to get things approved. And because of that, you saw the chief of staff, Mark Meadows called Dr Hahn in for a briefing. Now, one of the things that we know is that you've seen Appear to be plane loads on some level of vaccines dropped off in different parts of this country as well as I've seen foreign as well on we're still waiting on the approval from the FDA to give it the thumbs up. We did hear from health and human services Secretary Alex is our yesterday that the vaccine will be shipped within 24 hours of FDA approval. And then, he said, I think rather optimistically that it would be up to nursing homes, hospitals and pharmacies to get that dispensed, and that's true, But you have to get it through the state's first and the states and what the process will be in those individual states. As to how to this first, the vaccine has yet to be determined. We're waiting for that guidance that will come in the meeting today from the CDC. To give a better indication of whether or not the follow through is, Let's make sure that our frontline workers and health officials, the people who are in hospitals and first responders are the ones getting that vaccine first, and then we can start to move into more concerning communities and then who would get things from their That's all relatively true as well. But the states have to kind of break those guidelines down. Based upon the movement from the Trump administration, saying that states would be the ones responsible and that it would be the most populous states and getting the first doses of these vaccines if you will, so there's a lot at play here. There's a lot that's being run through the government that could cause delays. But again, the theory is once the FDA approves it. Those vaccines that are sitting on the runway someplace in Chicago will be able to be dispersed and you could begin getting the vaccines out to people who need it.
Trump accepts US presidency transition to Biden must begin
"Today might mark the first day of the rest of donald trump's life that is because tonight joe biden officially became president elect. And let's also be real clear. Here it's over. The president has failed in his attempt. To overturn an election result joe biden will as planned takeover as the forty six president noon january twentieth in keeping with the results of the election. Another way of putting it is. Trump's defeat became official when the woman who runs the general services administration faced with a boss. Who will not concede just tonight grudgingly agreed to officially begin the transition to the new administration in a letter to biden that avoids calling him. President elect emily murphy signed off on his transition and noted she was under no political pressure. Writing quote please know that came to my decision independently based on the lawn available facts. I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any executive branch official including those who work at the white house or gsa with regard to the substance. Our timing of my decision. I did not receive any direction to delay my determination. Her decision came just hours after election. Officials in michigan certify. Joe biden's victory. Trump posted his reaction to the news about the transition with a message. That did not sound like a concession quote. I wanna thank emily murphy at gsa for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our country our case strongly continues and we will keep up the good fight and i believe we will prevail nevertheless in the best interests of our country. I am recommending that. Emily and her team do what needs to be done and have told my team to do the same tonight. The new york times reports at this way quote mr trump had been resisting any move toward a transition but in conversations in recent days that intensified monday morning top aides including mark meadows the white house. Chief of staff pat sip alone. The white house chief counsel and jay seculow. The president's personal lawyer told the president. The transition needed to begin. He did not need to say the word can see. They told him. Trump continued to solicit opinions from associates including giuliani. Who told him there. Were still legal. Avenues to pursue. This all comes after a string of losses trump and his effort to overturn the election results. Now trump's legal team is putting all their efforts in pennsylvania. Even several counties have begun to certified the biden victory earlier on this network one of trump's campaign lawyers explained the strategy here or legal strategies to make sure that every vote counts in his counted fairly inaccurately and we have timing again until december fourteenth. At least where those electors for the electoral college will vote and so our strategies to make sure that we continue to challenge all of these False and fraudulent results. The election was stolen in president trump by landslide. Okay so far. None of the election lawsuits has uncovered any fraud.
US presidential election: A turbulent transfer of power
"Peaceful. Transfer of power is a cornerstone of american democracy. Right now president. Trump is not only refusing to concede this election. He's also denying the incoming biden administration access to key documents funding information. They need to ensure a safe and smooth transition now. The formal transition process is actually a pretty new thing. Congress passed the presidential transition act just over fifty years ago. Em things proceeded from there with relatively little drama or problems until two thousand versus the mission of george. Bush is not up for me to accept or reject the legal process. You know. let's just watch this happen. It'll be over soon. We'll be ready for transition. It wasn't until weeks after that. Bill clinton cabinet meeting december twelve thirty five days after the election that george w bush was officially declared the winner that gave then president elect bush just over a month to plan for and staff his administration course nine months later the september eleventh terrorist attacks happened catching the nation and a relatively new president off guard when the nine eleven commission report came out in two thousand four. It pointed to this truncated transition as a weakness and recommended a more formalized process katherine dunn tempests at senior fellow at the university of virginia's miller center the senior research director at the white house transition project so laws were passed in the two thousands or spin sort of three sets of laws that have been passed to kinda they keep refining it and keep refining it but what they did primarily is that they enable the winning candidates to receive funding to start their transitions after they were formerly so that meant that once biden was the democratic nominee. He was eight. He was provided with all space some funding for salaries and the ability to start planning ahead. Talked to us a little bit. About how worried you are or how worried we should be as americans about this as you pointed out the attacks on nine eleven happened not that long after president bush took office. If something happens january or february of this coming year would the biden administration be potentially a unable to respond because they just simply didn't have the staffing and they didn't have the time to ramp up and be ready. Let me back up. Just a bit to point out that There are basically two important phases of the transition. The i i pointed out was after the nominee has been formally nominated by the party and they received some resources the next big transfer resources comes after the head of the gsa has ascertained the next president united states and they use that verbiage. Esser that verb. I'm not really sure why but And that's the point at which the president the incoming president can start to have access to classified material that can start to be part of the president's daily brief with Tells them all the national security issues. It enables the biden transition team to have access to all of these individuals civil servants and political appointees at the various agencies so that they can interview them. So what's happening now. Is they are preventing the biden from moving to the next phase. And what i would argue is the most important phase at the transition. It's critically important that the biden staff members be able to go to the department of justice francis and to be able to interview. Fbi director the head of the criminal division the head of the national security division to try to get a sense since of. What's the lay of the land where the priorities. What are the crises. That might be boiling over by the time we get here. And that's what they're being denied so. I think there should be a lot of concern about this. The the inability to advance to the next stage of the transition. It's not to say that it's going to necessarily result in some sort of crises that but we want a country that's prepared so it strikes me as were basically just sort of harming ourselves for no apparent reason and were inhibiting our ability to be in the best possible situation. We can be on january twentieth. And there's no reason for that. We have the resources we have the capacity. So why so. Let's talk about the. Why and and the who so. Emily murphy is a name that most of us probably weren't familiar with until now she is a person who is at the head of the. Gsa can you talk a little bit about how her role what her role is. And how much leeway. She has to continue to refuse to release these funds or to allow the biden team to start integrating with the outgoing trump administration. So emily murphy is the administrator of the gsa. It's a political appointment in the gsa. It's office is largely responsible for all the government real estate so they helped provide office space and oversee office space You know in in most situations would never even hear of the essay in this particular case because the legislation housed it in the gsa. She has the capacity to release the funding and the resources to the party. Nominees and then eventually to the president-elect by law she is the one that has to ascertain the election so there will be no funding going out until she does it. So what's tying our hands. I mean she is a by president trump. She must be a republican. Who has some loyalty to this administration and is unwilling to buck the advice. She's getting probably for mark meadows. Probably the chief-of-staff sues weighing on her.

Trump is stonewalling Biden's transition. Here's why it matters
"Amy Walter from the takeaway were well underway and the ability for Theo administration in any way by failure recognizes this our wind. Does not change the dynamic at all. What radio peaceful transfer of power is a cornerstone of American democracy. Right now. President Trump is not only refusing to concede this election. He's also denying the incoming Biden administration access to keep documents funding an information they need to ensure a safe and smooth transition. Now the formal transition process is actually a pretty new thing. Congress passed the Presidential transition act just over 50 years ago. Him. Things proceeded from there with relatively little drama or problems until 2000 President George Florida's certification of George Bush is the winner. It's not up for me to accept or reject. There's a legal process here, you know, let's just watch this happen. It'll be over soon and we'll be ready for the transition. It wasn't until weeks after that. Bill Clinton Cabinet meeting December 12 35 days after the election that George W. Bush was officially declared the winner. That gave then President elect Bush just over a month to plan for and staff his administration. Course. Nine months later, the September 11th terrorist attacks happened catching the nation and relatively new president off guard. When the 9 11 Commission report came out in 2004, it pointed to this truncated transition. Is a weakness and recommended a more formalized process. Catherine Don Tempus is it senior fellow at the University of Virginia's Miller Center. She's also the senior research director at the White House Transition Project. So laws were passed in the 2000. There's been sort of three sets of laws that have been passed to kind of they keep refining it and keep refining it. But what they did primarily is that they enabled the winning candidates to receive funding to start their transitions after they were formally nominated. So that meant that once Biden was the Democratic nominee, he was he was provided with office space. Some funding for salaries. And the ability to start planning ahead. Talk to us a little bit about how worried you are or how worried we should be as Americans about this, As you pointed out, the attacks on 9 11 happened. No, not that long after President Bush took office. If something happens January or February of this coming year, would the Biden Administration be potentially unable to respond because they just simply didn't have the staffing and they didn't have the time to ramp up and be ready. We'll let me back up just a bit to point out that there are basically two important phases of the transition. The first I pointed out was after the the nominee. Has been formally nominated by the party and they receive some resource is the next big transfer resource is comes after the head of the G s A has ascertained the next President, United States and they use that Burbage ascertain that bird. I'm not really sure why, but And that's the point at which The president, the incoming president can start to have access to classified material. They can start to be part of the president's daily brief with which is the tells them all of the national security issues. It enables the Biden transition team to have access to all of these individuals, civil servants and political appointees at the various agencies so that they can interview them. So what's happening now is they are preventing the Biden from moving to the next phase, and what I would argue is the most important phase of the transition. It's critically important that the Biden staff members be able to go to the Department of Justice, for instance, and to be able to interview the FBI director, the head of the Criminal Division, the head of the National Security Division. Try to get a sense of sense of what's the lay of the land where the priorities what the crises that might be boiling over by the time we get here, and that's what they're being denied. So I think there should be a lot of concern about this. The inability to advance to this next stage of the transition. It's not to say that it's going to necessarily result in some sort of crisis. I don't know that, but We want a country that's prepared so it strikes me as we're basically just sort of harming ourselves for no apparent reason, and we're inhibiting our ability. To be in the best possible situation. We can be on January 20th, and there's no reason for that. We have the resources. We have the capacity. So why? So let's talk about the why. And the who? So Emily Murphy is a name that most of us Probably weren't familiar with until now. She is a person who is at the head of the G s A. Can you talk a little bit about How her role what her role is and how much leeway she has to continue to refuse to release these funds or to allow The Biden team to start integrating with the outgoing Trump administration. So Emily Murphy is the administrator of the G S. A. It's a political appointment in the GSC itself is largely responsible for all the government real estate, so they help provide office space and oversee office space. Um, you know, and in most situations you would never even hear of the G s a in this particular case because all the transition funding the legislation housed it in the G s a She has the capacity to release the funding in the resource is to the party nominees and then eventually to the president elect by law. She is the one that has to ascertain the election, so there will be no funding going out until she does it. So what's tying our hands? I mean, she is appointed by President Trump. She must be a Republican who has some Loyalty to this administration and is unwilling to buck the advice. She's getting probably from Mark Meadows, probably the chief of staff who is weighing on her. So what happens? The electors meet in mid December, and they certify the results of this election. Is that the time in which you could argue that There just is no formal or legal option for the president to continue to It's sort of obstructed this process. Right? I think the meeting of the electoral college and the electors casting their ballots. And if if the numbers show that you know Biden exceeds 2 70 as he as they appear to now it strikes me that there is she has no justification. To deny the Biden campaign or president elect by and hit the resource is, however. This is a norm, shattering president and we've never had a president who has not conceded. He's lost the election. So normally, I would say yes. You know, that is clearly a decisive moment in American history when the electors cast their vote, And if Biden exceeds 2 70. He is the president. At the same time. I honestly don't know what to expect in this administration. It's very hard to predict many of his political appointees have been loyal to the core. You use the word norm shit or term norm shattering, and I'm wondering how close we are to instead of norm, shattering. Actual democracy damaging, I mean, really, fundamentally undermining the integrity. Of our government and the things on which it is built. I would contend that President Trump along with many senators, who are Denying the facts of the election results and are upholding sort of Trump's Baseless claims of fraud and stealing the election that they are undermining the very tenants of American democracy. In order to have a healthy democracy, the citizenry has to believe in the institutions. They have to believe that the elections that they voted are free and fair. And by actively perpetuating this notion that there has been fraud and some sort of stealing of votes. You are undermining the important tenets of American democracy. And that has long term implications and we are already at important and I would say high level of turmoil in this country. Pandemic has wrecked havoc on the account economy. Various incidents across the country have heightened racial tensions in this country. This is not a moment where we then need to undermine yet another important aspect of American democracy. How

"Andi. I think that that's really where everybody's head is, is the authenticity we have reporting from at least two of those e mails that That someone a couple of people on the E mail chain at the time confirmed that it was the E mail that was sent back in May of 2017. So that doesn't say the whole lot. Is authentic. It says that we are confirming one by one based on who's on these emails, and you know it's tedious, but it's it's important story just to be able to get to the bottom of Mark Meadows and others have said that the way Twitter and Facebook handled The New York Post story about Hunter Biden amounted to election interference, and I wonder if that's fair because we all have this conversation, right? These are private companies, thie social media companies. They're making decisions and members of Congress may want to question them about those decisions and maybe their liability protections under section 2 30 will be on the chopping block at some point. But is it fair to call this straight up election interference? I don't know. I think that that's a real debate for Capitol Hill and the section 2 30 is a serious thing if you're goingto Act like a publisher making editorial decisions, Then you're going to be big. Treated like one, and that's a big deal for these company. So I this story is not over on that front and finally right. It's obviously been a strange year. Many of us have not interacted with voters like we have in previous cycles, and I haven't because of you know, I'm used to getting a different field where people are at, you know, by interacting on the campaign trail. In a way that you know, I don't think any of us really have had the same. It just hasn't the same vibe. And I'm wondering how this election cycles been different for you on DH. How has it been remarkably, the same or similar? I have managed to get out of few times. I wantto Pennsylvania entities. The debates sites. Yeah, being mashed Nashville and you specifically trying to talk to voters. Um, obviously, in a very covert sense, way and in the way that we talk to people, it's not like the traditional go into a diner and plop yourself down on DH. Talk to everybody at the diner, and it's a lot more. Um, careful than that. But I think you know, social media gives you one sense ofthe people and deciding campaigns credit. They never believed Democrats on Twitter or Democrats overall, and they really didn't stray from there. Um, from their take on the election from the primary on which is we're not goingto just cater to Twitter Democrats who demand X Y and Z and for you has has preparation for election Night. Been been any different. I mean, we're used to seeing you on air for hours. Yeah, I think Election night. It will be like that. Um and we are prepared to be out and about, you know, live in different places. There are so many races of importance and You know, we've got the presidential race and that's the big kahuna. But you've got control of the United States Senate since that is You know really significant and some races. They're going to come down to the wire. So Add to that early voting, the cheques about signatures and Malin I mean, there is a potential that you have more than just Tallahassee, Florida and hanging chads at the end of the deal that you have numerous states that are not ableto.

"Today outside the White House chief of staff Mark Meadows spoke to reporters for a little over 10 minutes on issues, including the replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U. S. Supreme Court. The president said he needs nine Justice Supreme Court election challenge because he asked me of potential nominees how they will vote. No, he hasn't. Actually I've been in those interviews and I could tell you it would be inappropriate for us Ask those kinds of questions. I think his comments were more just an indication that we need a a full panel on the Supreme Court. You don't want to ever provide a a situation where there could be Tie a 44 ty not to suggest that this should be a 44 tie. I think it should be more of a unanimous decision on some of the facts that I have seen. But obviously I'm not a justice. They would have to hear That case would be highly inappropriate. We wouldn't want to ask a question that would perhaps for some potential nominee to recuse themselves. Should they have to hear this waste but with him out there, saying he needs to have this justice because there might be a challenge. That create bags of a conflict of interest for whoever you well, I know no more than any other judge that has been nominated by Donald Trump or Barack Obama or anybody else. I mean to suggest that just because they were nominated by somebody that they would have an inherent bias, I think we've seen from the court rulings already by the Supreme Court. They're an independent body, and they don't necessarily vote the way that you might think they should. I can tell you that That particular issue is eyes, Probably the least of potential nominees. Worries that it makes you effective profits were kind of expecting a second question. The president will have confidence. I can't speak to the second question in terms of the confidence in director Ray, I can tell you that I was Very, very disappointed to see some of the text messages and emails that came out yesterday. And some of the discovery that was put for from my previous job is a member of Congress. I know that I've asked for exactly those kinds of documents and never got them on that was under the previous director and also under this director on so it is time for direct array to quit in my mind playing footsie with transparency and Deliver those documents. The second part of your question was more that I think. Well, I think if past is prologue, I mean, we've got all kinds of indications that the Democrats are. We're going to use the next 30 days to try Tio shame. Whatever nominee we put four for their faith for their record for who they are, and Troubling. I mean, we've got it. We see even today that way don't have AH continuing resolution passed because Chuck Schumer is playing games with procedural aspect based on a potential nominee. We took down a election security hearing today because Chuck Schumer's playing games that's minor. That's that's child's play compared to what we will see over the next 30 days, But we're prepared for the fight. What we will see is, I think Be thorough Vetting but hopefully done in expeditious way way. I didn't say it was Judge Merrick Isa. Good leading question. You can say that the president's confidence in director, I haven't talked to him about it. Well, I can tell you that we have a number of people that continue to serve at the pleasure of the president that he has different degrees of confidence in on DSo Tio directly speak to that question. Without actually talking to him would be inappropriate about healthcare. Big announcement guys today the president wanted to executive orders now the U. S government policy that preexisting conditions should be protected. Forced the affordable care act right now is that five lost? What are Americans make policy of already existing protection? Well, Peter, you as you know, there's a court case going through as it relates to the affordable care act and what the president Wanted to make sure I was clear not once not twice. But now a third time in signing that executive order is to make sure that preexisting conditions are covered that insurance companies can price people out of their coverage just because of the illness that they have or could have come down with, And it was just a commitment and say that if the court strike that down any future legislation under a Trump administration would guarantee that preexisting conditions are covered. And so From his perspective, It's just trying to make sure that the message is clear. He's been very clear in the Oval Office, You know, Sometimes the campaign rhetoric in the ads that get place do not match the private conversations in the Oval. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows outside the White House earlier today. Scepticism of some because obviously the president president for four years, But they say that it's that they should be protected his only a policy. It's not along. We've never seen a plan. Peter, this is not your first rodeo. And you know how Congress has the inordinate and unbelievable ability to obstruct, especially when you have a divided Congress. I don't know of a single Democrat that would be willing to take down on Obama care piece of legislation haven't served in the car. It's almost like they're Holy grail. Now they'll admit there's all kinds of flaws and all kinds of problems with it that they won't fix, but they won't repeal it. And so it's all about making sure that the message to the American people gets covered. One of the interesting things that no one seems to be picking up on too much. Well, is the $200 copay that's actually is going it is coming from the savings from the executive order on most favored nation big farmer would push back on that. Pushback on that, But we're going to be able to save tens of billions of dollars were actually going to use a demo. Ah, demo for to be Medicaid CMS demo project that will actually allow us to use about $7 billion to pay for those. But those will be offset with savings from from Pharma as we enacted most favorite nation, money way have we have a 10 year? Window on that for those savings, and we're actually working on those final rules. Those proposed rules now to put forth But just like the Obama administration used the same program in the previous administration were going to use it now to make sure that seniors get the benefit of those savings today and that they don't have to wait for those you already prepping initial Supreme Court nominee for confirmation questions and Wilder wise guy sort of Urfa. Person around Capitol Hill with numbers on DSO in terms of prepping any particular nominee that we have. No, we have not started prepping those. We won't until the nomination is full on I see me mean by wise guy could be wise guy or a gal, a cz, a Sherpa, and so as we wait guys in a plural and generic sense I would have seen on so as we look at that. I don't know that we'll be using Sherpa as much we've been working with leader McConnell, in a very direct way of had daily conversations would leader McConnell a number of senators because of covert and the inability of senators to actually engage more on a office by office faces? We're looking at modifying that if there is a need for a Sherpa, we've actually have asked the leader for some recommendations. There were certainly open to that. But I think next week what you'll see Is Patsy polonium myself, making sure that we make the nominee available to a wide variety of senators. Political question. You aware that Amy Kony's merit worked on foot vs board and you know what was her role? Apparently, she was in Florida working for Stuart Levey. According to her question. Yeah, I I'm certainly aware of every nominees record, whether it's Amy Comey, Barrett or anybody else. I can't say I don't think that this is a hanging Chad problem. This's more a mail in ballot. Unsolicited mail in ballot with delays in collection of those ballot issue. Hopefully, we're not gonna have a hanging Chad problem when my last question was president, felling three of your quote, By the way, I think you owe guide okay. Yeah, that sounds like a good stand. Wise wise guys. Okay, campaign. Apparently, the RNC are telling Republican voters essentially that they need To vote absentee necessary. Isn't that sort of out of line with the president's message going to be male in front? And I mean, I think absentee ballots if they've got a normal process, perhaps auntie ballots like we had in North Carolina. I don't know that that process is one that is new or different. I can't speak to every state. All I can speak to is North Carolina, but but I can't. Say you that solicited ballads with absentee requests or certainly something that has been the norm eyes the unsolicited ballots mailing to ever registered voter that he has a bigger problem with and that most Americans should have a problem with that theory is she's been radio programming from Friday. Well, I don't know That's how I'm basing the acceptance. Of the election here is a valid point here is what we want to make. Sure of is that laws are not changed by a few judges making it like in North Carolina consent decree. Don't change the laws that are on the books just so that you can extend the election time. Most states, North Carolina and others have a very long time for them to be able to cast their ballots either in person or by mail leading up to November. 3rd s O to suggest that we should have November 3rd. It's a week plus two weeks like has been mentioned in some states is not. There is not something that I think is necessary. The other is is when you have secretaries of states in a partisan manner, potentially certifying election results. We want to make sure that they do this on on away that's credible and they can with stand the scrutiny of of the public eye on allow a partisan process to get in. I don't know if you're following what's happened. In North Carolina. But it's very troubling where you have a a Democrat group, filing suit against a Democrat, Board of elections and then doing a consent decree. That's not what the American judicial system is all about. It's in my opinion gaming the system. Hopefully, that judge will not go ahead with that consent decree but is very problematic and it disenfranchises voters whether they're Republican, unaffiliated or Democrat. We want to make sure every vote counts. But We want to make sure that on ly one vote count ceremony, I I'm I'm assuming that we were invited. I don't know about the best. You know the invite list. Obviously, yesterday we wanted to make sure before he left town. He paid respects and so way actually adjusted his schedule so that he could do that.

Yeah, we've had an embassy that in in Jerusalem as something that Nice share passionately together that would, it's been promised before. And it never happened. Republican and Democratic presidents broken that promise trump is the first one to follow through. I have to make a confession when president trump when he was running, he said I'm GonNa. move the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. I just didn't believe him. I said that's the sort of thing say, but then they don't actually do it and I think a lot of people in Washington thought that, and then when it actually happened, everybody was so surprised. One thing that's really unusual. This administration is the kind of lead person on on Israel. Policy has been the US bastard Israel David Friedman. who great guys become a close friend? And it's unusual I don't know any instance. Passengers had that kind of influence, and it's because the president knows and trust him and David is passionately committed to strengthening. The US is relationship but I. I worked very closely with David after the president made the announcement. The nature of Washington, the swamp the State Department foggy bottom. Do not want this to happen, so here's how they would normally kill. It would just slow. Roll it. We need to study for a year the feasability we need to do a security assessment who we need. We need to do this and that and their plan. It was clear what their plan was going to be. Delay it for years. Jump Right. They were hoping trump loses reelection, and then the next the Democrat. WHO COMES IN? We'll cancel the announced. And what the trump administration didn't David was the point person I said David the only way this happens. If you open the damn embassy, you don't announce it right you in it. And they found a facility that was a consular facility in Jerusalem within a year. Open the damn thing. I've never seen anything like it, and there has been nasty and bureaucracy at state was shocked but that. The scenes like the urgency of understanding. And and so true, and you talk about behind the scenes so one story that I don't think is out. There is so the State Department pushing back. You know continuing to push back. I think they gave a list of the pros and cons, and so there were a whole long list of all these cards. Zero Pros, okay. Yeah, no, no I'm telling you may subtle. And so that's something Ben get reported so I literally was. You got all these reasons not to do it and no reasons to do it and yet this president stayed true to his campaign promise, and but but it takes the encouragement. Sometimes. It's a phone call from Ted Cruz in the middle of night. Say you know Golly, it's the right thing to do and. And in that affirmation makes a big Dif- well.

Repeal and the house was terrible. It was drafted by insurance company lobbyists. It was garbage. But when it was drafted, you remember early on the. House leadership was trying to really weaponized the president to attack the Freedom Caucus. Conservatives and you know you go back to the first few months. where the president was blasting them and I still remember spring of two thousand seventeen markers in the house. He's leading the Freedom Caucus. I'm in the Senate and we both go to mar-a-lago right. Basically just drop it on the president unannounced.

And Yeah, did you hear what he just said? Insurance premiums grow up seeing that hundred I mean yeah, it just. It was crazy now. The insurance lobbyists loved it. They want premiums to go up, but but we're both saying. Listen the people who elected you. WHO elected us? They don't want US jacking up premiums and it was a really important. It started to shift that bill away from that I ve version and it ended up getting significantly better. I've never heard that story before, but something I've noticed just on these shows you hear so much about how personal relationships in these sort of unplanned moments can really shift the path of policy in the country. Well it does, but I think the other thing is the interesting thing, so so ted goes come on I'm going over to see the president you need to come with.

"Six ninety redeye if you'd like to getting coming up on the bottom of the hour, we'll get to Somalia from Representative Mark meadows, who said what's going to be coming out, because the president has ordered the attorney general to declassify information and ordered that the intelligence agencies cooperate with the attorney general in his investigation, Mark meadows stating that's going to curl your hair last night on Fox News. The some of this information coming out, in days, not weeks will curl your hair. He said it will, you know, we spent a lot of time talking about Adam Schiff, and we believe he's lied to the American public, and how he said, if he hasn't lied to the American public, the Nadler's should be taking his gavel. I got my Nadler gavel right here. Go for it. That, that, that Nadler, should be taking the gavel and demanding the democrat Adam Schiff, head of the house intelligence committee testify, because he is the one that said he has seen the treasonous collusion of President Trump and his campaign with the Russians, we've never said anything about it. Either he's hiding information and the Democrats should demand that the democrat tell them what's going on. Or he lied about it and meadows talks about about that and said the reaction that you're getting from Democrats right now, he said, is because the Democrats you see that are yelling and screaming the most. They've seen it. He goes what you don't understand is we've seen it. They've seen it. They know what's coming. That's why they're reacting the way that they are. So we'll get to some of that audio coming up because the question you, and I have is what is it? Yeah. And you'd better deliver. If you've got something like that. If you believe.

"Mr. Khan with this. Do you think the president of the United States is making decisions in the best interests of the American people, don't especially those you said that he used horrible words about like African Americans Muslim Americans and immigrants. Yes. Just to make a note. Mr Chairman, just because someone has a person of color, a black person working for them does not mean, they aren't racist. Just because someone has a person of color working for them. Does not mean that they aren't racist. A direct slap at Mark meadows. As the young black woman sits behind him in the middle of this hearing. Now, I know what the congresswoman is trying to do. She's trying to somehow paint Donald Trump as a racist. And she's gonna use Mark meadows to do that. And it is insensitive that somewhat even say. It's the fact that someone would actually use a prop a black woman in this chamber in this committee. Oh, she's upset. You can hear it in her voice. She so upset that on the Republican side of the aisle. There is a black woman sitting behind a white congressman, and somehow I guess that's triggered her that has made her very very upset. It's about to make Mark meadows upset to his alone racist in itself. Doc having that woman sit there. Is according to her racist in of itself. Think about that. This is hell utterly ridiculous. It has become when we scream racism. At every little turn Trump is chairman. I ask. Downtown. Claimed my time chairman. Reclaim my time. She's been listening to Maxine. Reclaim my time in a president. Mr Chairman fast can be an issue chairman. The rules are clear cover up and hold onto business assets to break campaign finance laws and constitutional clauses. What we have here. Mr Chairman is criminal what I find fat. So so far, we're. We're a minute into this. Have you heard of question other than the initial question to Michael Cohen about whether or not Donald Trump was a racist? Have you have you heard anything else? No, she's just she's just a screed. She's just screaming so she's doing at this point conduct and the pursuit of the highest public office by Mr. Colin and individual one, I hope at the gravity of this situation heads everyone in this body, the court report in congress and across this country. Thank you, Mr Chairman. I yield the rest of my time. Mr Chairman, I asked her words when she's referring to an individual member of this body be taken down and stricken from the record. I am sure she didn't intend to do this. Oh, now, he's just being polite. She intended to do it. If anyone knows my record as it relates. It should be you, Mr Chairman. I don't I want the words. No, no. We want to know exactly what she said colleague, excuse me. Would you like to rephrase that statement necessarily notice in the background? You heard some people saying we want to hear what she said again read it into the record. We want to hear it. Although it's already in the record. We want to hear it again. Have her back. Exactly what she said. Now Cummings who is the chair of the committee now since the Democrats have taken over is not going to do that. Because he knows exactly what she said. And I happen to believe that Elijah coming Cummings thinks that what she said was inappropriate in violation of the house rules, but he's going to give her the opportunity to walk back. Those remarks. Thank you, Mr Chairman, I can actually read it from here. Just to make a note. Mr Chairman that just because someone has a person of color, a black person working for them does not mean they are racist. And it is insensitive that someone would even say racist say is racist in itself and to use a black woman as a prop to move to prove it otherwise. How is not claiming that using a black woman as a prop? How is that is not racist? I think that is first of all. Forget.

"Zero bearing on their ability to safely own operate the fire now, I don't care whether you care more about gun rights or gay rights. But what you should not do is avert your eyes from this stupidity. The F and their directly to bar gun dealers from transferring firearms to individuals who refused to select male or female. I mean, how many stories have done about? Even even I on numerous occasions have refused just out of spite to refuse to check the box, male or female does make any difference. Whatever it is. I'm applying for or need or buying or registering? You don't need to know, whether I'm a male or female. I thought we were a little more enlightened than that. The bureau of alcohol tobacco and firearms, which we only get rid of in their directing to bar gun dealers from transferring firearms to individuals that refused to select male or female or worsening the status of a class of people that are predisposed to victimization. There's no excuse for this kind of rigid unreasoned policy. But that's what you get the greater and more. Entrenched the bureaucracy becomes the more entrenched. The administrative state becomes in our lives. The more kind of BS like this that you get. Does it seems like an odd bedfellows for me to be advocating for? But I gotta tell you. I do not believe that it's anybody's business when it comes to purchasing a gun, if you've said, okay. Here's my name. Here's my address. Here's my social security number. What else do you need to know? Give me the freaking gun. Because the second amendment says a well, regulated militia that being the people being necessary to the security of a Free State the right of the people to keep him bear arms shall not be infringed. And that's exactly what the ATF is doing. They had a reverse course, and the other take proper stock of the rights of people who might be affected by such judgment calls in. Instead, what are they doing? Their budget. Numb nuts with a little bit of power that they have decided that they're going to take it upon themselves to determine who can and cannot get a gun. Mark my words. This is the proverbial foot in the door. I hate bureaucracy. I absolutely utterly hate bureaucracy. Right. So now as long as I'm on a tear and doing things that seem counterintuitive is someone who is right of center. Do you know how I feel about civil asset forfeiture? I just think it's totally constitutional. Mark meadows, chairman of the freedom caucus. Has really pissed me off. He tweets out. Democrats continued to refuse to negotiate in good, faith or appropriate any money for border barriers if they won't compromise. The president should use asset forfeiture money or other discretionary fees to start construction if not he should declare a national emergency. It's time. What? So you wanna take money that is unconstitutionally taken from even from criminals. You know, what criminals are entitled to due process? This is kind of like the idea of people that tell me. Look, I think marijuana ought to be legalized. I think it'll be legalized with the national. And I can hear all your arguments about how it's not good for kids. Brains will neither is alcohol. You can tell me all the stories about how marijuana is not good for this reason or that reasonable for every reason you can give me about marijuana. I can point out heroin or alcohol or opioids or too many cheeseburgers or anything else. Oh, yeah. Angie? That's exactly right. That's that's a legacy one. That's an ad. In fact, remind me at the break. To tell you something about it address. I checked one time. Sorry. Little little sidebar with my producer for a second. Here's what drives me about crazy about people who who will say this about marijuana. We I think we ought to legalize it. So we can get the revenue from it. No, you're either for it. Or you're against. If we do everything based on whether or not we can get revenue from it. Where does that stop? So here's a member of the freedom caucus think about the freedom caucus advocating that we take the ill gained monies that cops get from many times innocent people who can't afford to go file the lawsuit to try to get their proceeds from that day's convenience store back. And use it to construct the border wall. No. Congress ought to do their job. Just you know what? I don't care along the government shutdown. I really don't. Trump's gonna cause somebody to blink. It may be Republicans. It may be Democrats but somebody somewhere is going to blink. And I don't think it's going to be Donald Trump. He knows exactly what he's doing. But don't tell me that you ought to take civil asset forfeiture money and use that to build the wall. How about if you're the freedom caucus instead of advocating using ill gotten gains from innocent people to build the wall. How about this? How about the freedom caucus instead? Makes them makes a motion introduces legislation to get rid of civil asset forfeiture, or to at least changed words halfway. Halfway constitutional. I don't have a taxpayer relief shot tonight. But I do have. Somewhat of the equivalent. It is time for common sense hammer control. We got too many people using hammers in..

"Largest fastest growing most popular conservative podcast on the interwebs. Okay. So bottom line is lots of Cass over at the White House. John Kelly is out Nick Ayers is not in right now. They're a bunch of people who have been rumored again, Republican Representative Mark meadows. The US Trade Representative Robert lighthizer. Apparently, he doesn't want it. Budget director. Mick Mulvaney, apparently doesn't want it acting attorney. General Matthew Whitaker might not want it. Nobody really wants it. Because there is so much at the White House. And all of that does go to the president's governing style. The president does not make life easy for his staffers over at the White House. It's a difficult life to be a staffer over the White House. You're on call all the time. And let's be real about this. There was a lot of chaos in the first couple of years of the Obama administration as well. But suffice it to say that with the president doing what the president does that's a very difficult and unrewarding job. And it'll be interesting to see who he picks as his chief of staff. I just hope whoever it is is able to bring together folks inside that administration in a way that John Kelly, certainly could not I think was sort of poised to now meanwhile, it is worth pointing out that there is a supreme court ruling today. It was really a ruling it was refusal. To take a writ of social theory on a on an abortion case, according to national review, the supreme court on Monday declined to review lower court rulings that prevented pro-life activists in two states from ending public financing for Planned Parenthood. So there was a case that was going to be appealed to the supreme court about whether states could ban funding public funding for Planned Parenthood the cases pertain to whether a Medicaid recipient who relies on Planned Parenthood for health services has right to challenge. Her states decision to defunding organization to date state courts in Kansas and Louisiana have found that states violate federal law by the private Planned Parenthood affiliates, Medicaid, funding, solely because they provide abortion the idea is that all of these federal programs can fund Planned Parenthood. And because they have not prevented the funding of Planned Parenthood states can't step in and prevent the federal government from funding Planned Parenthood on the Medicaid level. Even if the state is contributing this would be a political issue here is the problem. There were three justices three who voted in favor of hearing the case, these would be your favorite. Mrs Clarence Thomas. Neal Gorsuch Samuel Alito who voted against hearing the case. Well, all if all of left us on the court and John Roberts end Brett Cavanaugh who could have foreseen that Brett cavenaugh would not be nearly as conservative as a lot of his proponents were suggesting who could have suggested mum that Brett Cavanaugh might not. In fact, be the pro-life warrior on the supreme court that all the people on the left thought he was to the extent that they accused him of rape who could have foreseen the brick Cavanaugh would be a moderate. I'm a court creating a new swing block with John Roberts who who could right here. Now's me. Yeah. That's right. Go back into the shows. I set it at the time. So I think this is an early indicator that an indicator the breath Cavanaugh is going to be another moderate on the court, which is not exactly what folks need we need originalist perspective on the court. We don't need another. Let's let all the branches get along with each other by perverting the constitution. Clarence Thomas argued that. While the case is do tangentially related to the question of abortion at issue. Is more basic question of an individual, Medicaid, recipients relationship, tore state government. He said, it is true that these particular cases arose after several states allege that Planned Parenthood affiliates had among other things engaged in the legal sale.
