It was, but it's hard in lockdown right Valentine's day, it's hard to be romantic here I said to some of the other day. Let me get that did you write a door for you trying to be a good idea? there were halfway through forever. I still can't wait for last year to be over what the fuck I thought this is gonna, be a better idea. Valentine's day. Nothing gets your rubbed up for romance like a solid wig of bloody insurrection, videos, watching the impeachment all week its
just about ending the democratic world laid out a very powerful case, the Trump words today, violet insurrection against his own government and the Republicans laid out today, a very powerful case. don't give a shit. That's that's! Then they really don't. I may have you seen their lawyers Whoever was it's pretty pathetic? Why one of them, though, isn't observant? Do although we things trump is innocent or not, that of Germany, but some of the very there were smart is just showed the video at the tapes do. The talking in this amazing stuff there include a hero. That officer Eugene Goodman, the guy who you know he really say: policy in the middle, he turned around and got him go in the right way, and and my pants there we're gonna
my parents- and he said quick, MR pants, your people are revolting and pen said another suffering economic anxiety but to a fellow over this Trump vans are still claiming that the people in video, even under wearing trumpets and Trump shirts, and carrying trump signs and bidding on Trump targets with trump flags. Reading trump tweets are actually Antigua. really that's their defence? It wasn't us its people dressed up like us, acting like
I say that anti for school, for the performing arts is one hell of a dramatic, really get another. This is pretty, but it came out today that, during the whole engagement draw really since drums behind the windows, Maloney has spent most of his time at the spot, her favorite relaxation, past Just stay silent treatment, that's also it's the giant these new year. Why why we build the genie? Ok, great, listen, China, China's cooking arrest! in every way- and they have an unmanned chinese spacecraft now that is orbiting Mars. Its mission is to land Rover on the surface and look for signs of ancient life.
and then click on it and kill it, and also there not the only words you will get in America, poor American there's a spacecraft now from United Arab Emirates. It's also entered the Mars orbit and its goal was to make contact with intelligent alien life and make sure the women covered faces, that's their and our friend Marjorie tell our green. You know her right she's in the nose. Ok today now. This is that from the daily mail, Emily reporting, with their reporting, they're saying that she cheated cheese, was got cheating on her husband. She is too at the gym, she's to run a Jim that was her job before she was in Congress, surrender, fuckin, Jim and Alpha Georgia and one of the guy she apparently allegedly how they an affair with was appalling, amorous tantric, sex guru. Something tells me
for Russia, Georgia entering sex guru is any man was heard of the Qatar I think that's what I mean tantric sex guru, you mean some value met on tendering fuck, you wanna yoga man and finally got a lot of trouble. In all, never mind, we delegate the husband found out what you came when I will move on or strait jacket that was bad and that and then also the daily mail says he was having an affair not just with the tender accepts guru but with the manager of the Jim, and you know, that's bad habit of fair with the gym manage because you're all gone, how at first and then after
a few weeks. You stop coming statesmen markets, believes is at first he represents Illinois, sixteenth congressional district nowadays on our she always the founder of the country. First pact: please welcome Adam King Kensington Ally, is how you thank you for doing this show. I think we all know why. You're here you are one of ten Republicans in the house We voted to impeach show it's interesting. The way our country works now we're so tribal. I bet you right now, have a lot of new friends and a lot of new enemies? Is that true, That is true, and you know it, sir you're right, I think we're picking tribes, it's it's kind of why the inability to make independent decisions now, and so, when you're wanted ten people devoted to impeach. The President New Cross em
You have a lot of the base mad, but I also see a lot of people that understand. You know we need a republican party that maybe isn't crazy and can actually be a productive member of a government that has based We too right. When was the last time you think we had that no, really work. It's been awhile either, Avonlea sense since President Tromp, we haven't because it, but I think it's even really honestly, since I've been in politics as my eleventh year, and if you think about it, we I've learned- and I can always be you know, as a republic in looking at the Republicans, is we ve learned You can get elected on a steady diet of fear and so every fun raising may always send me five bucks to make sure that you know Nancy Pelosi doesn't destroying your family and its everything. Is this guy
the fear and eventually, there's. No wonder there is real damage done to democracy. So that's my whole idea of country first is all about. Is a putting the country first before the party be having a little bit of optimism about the future of the greatest country in the world. That knows no limits, except our own imagination, I can't get my solar turned on, so I'm not going to argue with you that I think we have a few more limited than that, but anyway you mentioned family. I know certain members of your own family. Did they not claim that you are now possessed by the devil. Nasa. it was. I was over at my parents house in an hour of nowhere. I got a registered letter to my parents house that same I read, it was just having to handwritten pages really tiny letters really angry, a lotta caps,
saying I'm now in the devil's army, because I dared turned against President Trot but actually outside I got a second certified letter reiterating that by the way about two weeks ago, but the thing about that is actually happy. I got it because it really woke me up to the to the level of brainwashing in some people and the the understanding. They truly believe that they are fighting against the forces of the evil. Just because you know the person that they thought was. The second coming basically turned out the loose. Do you believe there is the thing as a devil do yeah absolutely. I do, and I think, but I think when you well look, I was in ok, I have a great washing and you know I mean if you believe that this is a things, a devil. To begin with, aren't we half way to nonsense right there? Do you believe the listen I'll tire I was sitting there on insurrection day and I've got to tell you. I felt
literally like pure evil coming into the capitol, and I have talked to many of the officers and including the option for known who is the guy that was drugged down the stairs and told to kill him with his own gun and he's like man. I've never seen. People like that, Ok, you know a few quality of law or not. It was something that was raising these people to believe that if you go into the capital and destroy your somehow doing a service for a country, so I know you, you feel I'm glad you do, and I wish you the best with this project that you can reclaim the republican party. But I do I'm looking at the numbers congressmen and they're. Not you would need a swing of about forty points
Mean Trump wants to start his own party, thirty, three percent of Republicans or down with that right away, another thirty seven percent say probably maybe so only thirty percent are are with Republican classic for you to reclaim the party again. I think you would need a swing of about forty percentage point. How can you really accomplish that so? And it is hard to an end. The thing I've looked at it is is, there has been no counter voice in the Party to Donald Trump everybody's been scared- and that's where I finally decided just to be extremely bold about it is to say people need be here, the other side of this. They need the remit There is a really rich history of the republican Party. We can be better in and so a lot. I basically just did a video pull on country first, I come with the one by the way, but I did that within
mention of just say and what I want to say and the reaction was married. Twenty thousand, you know email sign up in twenty four hours and what it showed its, not just disaffected Republicans its independence and its even some Democrats that are like we just what the Seine Republican Party, so I can do, is put at all in the field. I may fail: that's ok, I'm at peace with Brian, but somebody's gonna do you're willing to lose your job. I mean that's gotta, you say you even in Congress. Eleven years right, have you ok and is served overseas? I mean you ve, been in workplaces, incongruous, right, ok, tell me what is so great about this job that people are willing to sell their souls. Is it just because you get a staff, yours? celebrity. Is that it because these people could likely you don't need any skills to do the Congress? I'm not I'm not you,
I'm just saying it's one of the few jobs in America with there's, no checks or you have to do- is get people to vote for you. You can be the biggest more and in the world, and I venture viewed some of them and you can get all you need is a clip on time and the votes and you're there. Why? Why? What is it? Is that really what it is? They just don't want to give up the job that gives them a kind of a celebrity. I think it is, I think some of it is. Is it just fear you know, but I think it's Also, you spend your whole life trying to get the congressman's big dealing its Congress and then all of a sudden, when you think that's your terminal job where you're going to go higher, you live in fear anything you do but attire bill. What I've costly said to people's this. You know we as a military get myself. War is like if working ask young people to be willing to give their life or the country. You know how dare we not be willing to give our career for something that may not be justly?
warfare. So here's your toughness question you're gonna get for me. I don't understand this twenty! Sixteen! You watch Trump run. You said: well, I'm a republican, but I can vote for this guy. You watch them before years. As president you didn't vote Roman twenty. Sixteen you voted vermin, twenty twenty after you, somebody did is President explain: that to me and who did you vote for and twenty sixteen twenty? Sixteen I wrote somebody end but look and twenty if I could go back in time wooden vote. I remember now: actually, sir, I really do and so well covered in one say anybody here why
I wrote you and I wrote you ok when I was wanting why Russia dragged into issues right in, but I am now yes but like an end in twenty twenty outside. If I could go back in time now ass, I would, moreover, for Joe Biden Harvey because, with a thing that differentiate a lot, is after the election and undermining the whole system of the election. Is, you can even say crazy. Stuff is further when you start to say that the election doesn't work. It's rigged, its everything that step one or step two and three of destroying a constitution or a public right now. I could not agree more so why? Why didn't Nancy Pelosi as you and lose Janey? Who also have the guts to stand up? Why didn't ask you to be impeachment,
managers would not have been a month? I'm not saying I want to change the verdict because, of course, he's not gonna get connected, but would not have been a much more compelling case for the country to watch with two Republicans, as can as impeachment managers. there it would be for, for he would have taken. I remember back. Even we would have done maybe I don't know- probably maybe look I don't know, I'm everyone was ass when I really thought about it in the goose possibility, but listen what, during the impeachment Oh, you know I want to go down and speak on it, and I ask for a time from the Democrats and and got a minute. You know to their credit, but I always thought that that would have made sense of data, given some republican some time to go down and make the case and instead of seeing a forty five second speeches, but there a lot of politics, and nobody wants to have their say and there's a limited time, and all that What do you expect for your next primary fight? If you do run again, he's gonna, be fine.
I've been through a lot of primaries and people always think they can beat me and the truth is you pay attention to what people want and quit paddling and fear people actually reactor optimism, fear when it's legit, I'm scared a covert and I'm scared of disunity in this country. I'm not scared of Democrats. You now they're just. there are some that are no use. Your delegation, we entered the Republicans to your right, we're going to press right, that's what I'm saying last going to go on and that no that's not going to be pretty view I think a lot of the time. It's a paper tiger because, quite honestly, I think Donald Becomes less and less relevant every day, if you go out there and you too, people. The truth I have I've had the right come against me and every primary and I win huge. You know, you'd and and think it's gonna happen again. Those normally go out and fight hard, if I lose I'm a piece, my friend right good of Europe at a campaign for you there
I thank you. Adam Kismet arrives late hour, Faddle rise, while these about the daily cause and go to the daily goes podcast. The brave Marcos Miletus is back with this attitude is gone around, says, strategies and MSNBC contributor. Our friends, deep Schmidt is overhears, gave great to see you. Ok, I'm just gonna, I'm not going to make a big deal about this every week, but there we introduce this week. This is my days waiting for solar calendar. Now, up to one thousand, eighty nine show the picture of my share. This took three years to build three years to get the permits for that. So try to hold my way.
The arrogance of the state, and I ll just give you the fun fact. I read in the paper this week when the virus hit had they h e b eyes, and I pronounced that city in China anyway. This is soon there was no war on China, erected entire towns of prefab housing and it started the next morning. Now, I'm not saying we're a dictatorship that can move that fast, but entire towns to quarantine, Paypal and three years. For that
So I guess my first question is: it just seems to me that all of our wounds, except for nine eleven, which really wasn't mostly airborne, seem to be self inflicted when you think about electing Trump and you think about Iraq WAR when you think about the financial meltdown in two thousand and eight at and stuff like this, we cripple ourselves. What is it about America that we are so inflicting our own wounds on ourselves, except for the solar Other examples you cited were all republican presidencies so that a common theme in a lot of these problems in and it always feels as a democratic. Obviously, I'm a partisan liberal democrat. We still are always cleaning up. Those messages
the Iraq war measure, whether its financial crisis mess in now buying the cove aid and the almost destruction of our american democracy. So it is frustrating that once we sort of maybe bring limit normalcy back Republicans and come back in our lives can people come back and then elect another Republican? No Steve, are you still a republican registered Democrat, but look I was always. I was always a moderate republic in, but look here's what the deal is. We have. We have a real life: autocratic, fascistic movement in this country that has a floor. Forty percent. We have one hundred for The members of the house, seven members of the Senate on January. Six, after a violent insurrection to destabilize the country takes place, they voted. They stood up and voted in ACT of Congress.
nullify the results of certified state elections in a country where the states created the Congress and not the other way around and in doing so established a new Jim Crow carcasses. They saw two way bout, millions of black votes just because to keep into power the person who lost the election, making him dictator in ending the American Republic? That's what's happened to you to your point, though, on on politics by politics has evolved over the years and I don't necessarily look at it. Dorm, broadly sympathetic to your point of view on Republicans in presidencies in the disaster, I think we got a problem of big in this country. Every area of big big banks, big tech, big everything in everywhere. You see big the list
Oh guys get in fact and big Govern, Reich government themes. I didn't hear you talk against big governmental lotta, Europe's new country. Look, it's not just the solar how's your money. We built the golden Stay bridge in the empire state building in a nine months, the denial minorities, I don't you try to do that today, you would take until fifteen years three years, for you know it's insane. So ok, there was interesting you said- and I think I agree with all it. Let me read you Joe Biden said about six weeks before the election. He said the thing that will fundamentally change with Donald Trump out of the White House, not a joke. That's him saying not a joke As you will see, an epiphany occur among many of my republican friends how's that epiphany going
I may not one of them that one year well, ok, but they don't do Epiphanes. I feel like this is a problem with Democrats, always hoping for something that you know it's the Charlie Brown with the football thing they It just never never come around. You know, Susan Collins, never does the right thing. We lie around our Lawlor Vocs it up right by enhanced, learn, dough and an ex actually sounded a lot like people like me for the last ten years, where most democratic, Putting Barack Obama came in any the fine bi partisanship, as working with major Mcconnell in MID Mcconnell could deny was votes and deny that veneer bi partisanship. What Joe Biden has come in and said, it's not about. You know, Mackay, without Mcconnell or any of those other Republican? It's about the american people in the car
relief fact that's going through Congress right now has the approval rating of eighty six percent. That includes Republicans in independence. That is true. Bi partisanship asked Miss MC kind Is it? I think that the site is eighty percent at the high number of that there are more than one point. Ninety, do you think they did the impeachment the right way, because I think this you're always going down a fool's path. When you try to link rhetoric, unless it's really explicit with actions and the course that's what the Republicans or making the case for determined it's a terrible case and a currency is a criminal, but the crime was denying that he lost the election. I think I feel like the the making it about the riot was sort of a distraction I mean you can always make similar cases where people and that's what they're. Probably could you doing on all week, long on Fox NEWS, although she was the one time he said in his speech on January six, the word
It's ok, I just feel, like that's a very hard case to make, whereas they had a tape of em with the guy from Georgia say. Find me eleven thousand new votes there. His voice on tape, deck to me would have been better if you want to try again England that, but I would rather have seen the Republicans defend that the guy on tape. find me eleven thousand new votes and I can win this thing. I can think of a more smoking gun than that. Look, these ease once these these months, that took place between election day inauguration Day or so the most significant months in this nations history. What happened between election day and the sex is faith and belief in american democracy was poisoned. premeditated rain deliberately bats the criterion by the cynical elites,
Josh Folly and crews, the paid liars like she unhappy and Lord Ingram. They poisoned it a day by day, like an Exxon Valdez like a bp, deepwater horizon, while the numbers rose till eighty two percent of Republican said the fairest and freest election american history was stored. We ve invented a lot of great things in this country airplanes I found It's that can land on the moon in return penicillin. I say that for tromp of these all of these all Aziz. All of these things and greatest stating the great staying with ever invented in this country bar none is the peaceful transition, a power that was on energy. dead from seventeen. Ninety seven it'll, twenty twond and separation of powers, and that that that ended this process was.
Blood soaked in the United States of America because of the incitement to violence, an insurrection of Donald prompt and the reality is that the more clear it was, the more certainly outcome of that trial was degree. Iter, the necessity, the greater the moral necessity for taking place, because what will be carved for the ages entreaty. ran it of the story of America or the men. and in women who betrayed their oats betrayed their droves betrayed their country and allowing a president who sought to be a dictator walk out and make no mistake. Donald Trump runs the Republican Party that poverty is an autocratic party I love congressmen, kid singers courage in standing up a requirement to be in Congo. gotta, be the Willingness Democratic Republic in the late
your seat on a matter of principle, but he's in the minority, the autocrat Carcass are in the majority at any time, Have a coalition of convenience between conservatives in fascists? It is always the fascists who win and first thing they do when they win is dispatch. The naive conservatives who, in coalition help bring them to power in the idea that in twenty twenty you vote for Donald Trump after he has the blood of hundreds of thousands of men work and on his hands from his lying is poisoning of our democracy? It is inexplicable but their energy. Like that's what I mean, I think it's just it's. It's utterly inexplicable. So you're saying that the party is is beyond redemption There is no place to me
in the middle with Fascists, Wainwright premises, who national is only when we brought you some mecca, but we can't lack tore open, but so we could magically wipe out the transport. We need another party where we cannot just the Democratic Party, because that's what we have in California I can get. My solar turned That's the problem, as we do need a loyal opposition. I mean we used to have a say in what we do on an end again, I'm liberal Democrat and I loathe everything republican stand for, and I remember the times when they came within Devil and Mitt Romney wholly shipment Ronnie Mitt Romney winds. What's he gonna do to America, but there was no a sense that if we have a lower it or not election, that will be the loser. Democracy in that's, where we are right now, because the next fascist at the Republican,
nominated me smarter than Donald Trump Donald Trump, with a fucking moron. He had now it's his plants, everything I'm gonna, destroy the postal service, so you guys get by mail. So, as Democrats relate, ok, we're not gonna vote by pale and it was easy, but he announced all these and you get somebody smart. You get a puritan like character report. In a word, real trouble in Dat's. Does that scenario about the rules internationally guys we're a watch router that Donald Trump I've always think. I've always been confused by this, and I think this is partly design for Progressive ISM respectfully, which is that there is literally no person in America who goes in for a driver's license a social security corps to local government, county government, state government federal government
walks into that building walks out, and so I want to put these people. I just interact in charge or more stuff having to do in my life and give them more money to do with it. If you want government to deliver services, and we do need government to deliver services, we should all demand as taxpayers, that those services be delayed. bird with ruthless efficiency. If we're going to have an anti poverty programme that spend billions of dollars for poor kids, we better make it work. We need accountability, we need metrics. We need smart government enders. This idea that I think pervades washing candidates, inherently defensive. Because something class alot, there's injury by saying it. Doesnt work particularly well, and so were so.
more progressive. You are the greater the demand for efficiency should be. I keep saying that had a lot of this is competence in a we wouldn't even now talking about the capital riot. If they had guarded the capital I mean they should and have gotten it. I can't believe that these got these guys who got it must have been like the dog had caught the car You know they like in the building. They didn't think ever gonna get it, but yet they talk about what if they ve gotten Romney, what have they gotten Pelosi where they got pens? What are they didn't get in at all? You know. The most amazing thing about the whole thing is watching the video in on the second floor, there's a cop whose armed and a guy person the Cuban on charming dress, like a Viking Annie. Basically talks too I'm here, I'm watch it shoot him. sure like you were thinking the United States is, he was dressed. I've been lodged unworthy of a shot
I mean I just yet you talk about competence and that's a human nature. Thing, though I mean anybody, walk and talk the conquests and have a really good. Now you can go down the list of customer three April and of course, so it's it's. You have a big institution, obviously have issues like there, but are you gonna do out that fossil and a city see right now in three weeks of the bite. A demonstration is not a million test. Rosato arrested. Another of course shows there is different or incompetence. Of course, I'm glad you mention the Sharm and because he this week was in the news he has renounced Trump a lot of these interventionist, though it's true, he remained a picture of me he used to look really cool. I may not at school. May not ethical. Look! Look what he looks like now that I think he was way better turn the pelt I mean now. He just looks like some assholes boring you and telling you about how he brews his own beer. You know I'm in this is, but when he was kind of hot, what the shaman thing.
I must say, I kind of self. I've got a while. He was hot. Therefore, the shoreline world he opened chairman where four men- I don't know. If you know about that, but and I sent away you could send away on Amazon, and you know when you send away for the knock off stuff, I mean I got. This It's not really. I got the sphere, I got the sphere to exist. Side was so not as good as we like words like the beetle wig. of Sharm and where are you don't really looked like the Beatles anyway? he was wrong about drugs. We got two m. I said what he also you're wrong about. He gave us a little less. Would you like to hear what else he said? I was wrong to think: mucus micro doses, that's all,
admittedly, is wrong, but then he said I was wrong. When they told me the insurrection was costume only. I was wrong deals guerrilla glow to keep the Viking had on my head. I was wrong to think. The way to get respect in prison is to talk about my allergies. longer say all those things about Jews. Before I needed a lawyer now, let's get back the serious subjects, my hair
I read this week that the Georgian Senate election, which of course was the crucial one, but it was eight. I can't believe this number eight hundred and thirty three billion dollars, that's almost what the entire national election in two thousand and four would you ran right, Mary Bush. eight hundred and thirty three billion dollars. There's a lot of money sloshing around in politics I know you ve had a rough weak with this. You can say what do you want here, I'm not here to prosecute. You see, said Lincoln Project that their project, which ran a lot of great adds. Liberals love those.
She says you're and scams territory. I I don't know like the aids will look. I I think, I think, tat we build the most successful super pack in american political history. We turned it into a. Then I think we did tremendous damage to Donald Trump. Well, then, why did you take the fight? If that's true, why did you do six percentage points better with Republicans that we knew? And when you look, I got ninety four percent of report, organ votes and eighty eight percent, the first time Y Y, you I think I think tat. You know. Sometimes you say things. at the beginning and they take on the order of Goswell. We were trying to win the elections. I really didn't give
shit, how many Republicans voted for tromp or not at the end of the day? One of the determinant of groups which are concentration was most acute on was independent white man and if you look at the delta between two people who voted for Biden and then return down, take it for Republicans. We play very heavily in that space. Look at the end of the day, I'm proud of the fact that we destroy Donald Trump, so my pencil relationship and took pants out of public life out. I'm proud of the fact that we decapitated his campaign manager from the campaign therefore edge with Donald Trump went out in Tulsa. He talked about for forty five minutes, walking down a ramp in drinking water and acting insane, since these reaction. We ve help lead a boycott of corporate Amerika for those hundred and forty seven sedition is Microsoft. Saying we're not going to give him any more money,
there's two hundred million dollars of cash, that corporate Amerika is likely to take out of work, a book in organizations on the basis of the vote that disenfranchised millions of black votes, because every single company in America has a statement about racial justice. Every copy America has black employees and black customers, and they can't ever say well on pro black lives matter, but I'm also for distant franchising. My black votes in one of the things that are happening in this country right now, as we speak, is a massive disenfranchise. Legislative effort that seeks to pause many votes out of this system before demographic changes can put more voters into it, too, certainly the Republicans can get back into power on a minority basis. We have a real life in twenty twenty one. Jim Crow move,
meant that playing out in republican legislative stage to deny the right to vote, and so when we look at the totality of what the Lincoln Project, what the Lincoln Project it in this election we accumulated billions of views. We have more followers lined any Orient see. Did we built dreaming services and podcast services in community and all the money went toward where it undertook to fight felt we out of eighty seven million dollars that was raised by the Lincoln Project about sixty three to six, six million of that money went to vote or conduct contact into voter contact programmes. The campaigns cost a lot of money all of this stuff. Every super pack operates like this in Lincoln Project. It first specific reason for where they are and where they other money go. The law requires. The law requires that you make disclosures, but you don't have
disclose sub contractor payments, which is how you protect your staff and all sorts of vendors from the harassment of the Trump people I'm a guy who had FBI agent, show up at his house to say your number eleven on the Trump bombers. These are sigh ox it list. I was eight You might have been on the first calming. I was gonna, be in the next batch, but day, ok, but they claret, ok selling is I want to protect our people, infrastructure costs, but we spent Seventy five eighty percent of total money of voter contact, so I'm glad you brought up Georgia has its really instructed case in a couple ways I just generally speaking most, if not all television adds was passed away money. None of that change,
single persons, mind at the presidential who is going to see and adding, though I was gonna love a trumpet now and that's why I do it some millions of dollars. Now, here's a really interesting fact right, Joe Biden, outspent Donald Trump in every single, battleground state except one, and that includes states like Iowa and Ohio that weren't even close Trump one. Those easily the one state were trump outspent by with Georgia right. So this idea that monies are terminated, but even more importantly, in two thousand sixteen Trump one Georgia by five point, and then he added three hundred and sixty thousand votes in twenty twenty. So it's eighteen percent increase, so you think we're he can't lose right, so you're buying went. How did they do that? Six hundred thousand new vote? That's over thirty percent increase six hundred thousand
in those weren't, they weren't pulled out by television ads. They were put out by organisations Ecstacy Abrams New Georgia project that registered hundreds of thousands of dollars, and you know what it is. You drag your project budget with five million dollars so you're talking about these hundreds of millions of dollars, billions of dollars spent in the election. She spent five million dollars and twenty twenty regulatory hundreds. Thousands that's why we want in twenty six team, who spent all the money I'll pissed away Hilary Ro Chiefs outspent Trump too to want that's what I'm saying, I'm gettin virtually nothing at. Yes, money almost works against itself. I think people see the add a million times and they go I'm so fucking
of looking at this one at our group, this person- I don't care if I agree with them, I am not voting, which is, which is why the pointed to communication has to be said, a narrative if you look at if you look at what the Trump campaign released and said, this is why we lost covert all of these issues. I remember watching before Lincoln Project started in December Elizabeth. I think it was Elizabeth Warrant out of one of the democratic debate. Then she's she's. She remarked that it was a successful debate because no one talked about Trop and terrified me. I believe to the core of my being: and will to the day I die, and I think I was right about this. The election was about one thing: it was about tromp. The number one issue was Trump, the next ten, after that we're Trump and annex three thousand. After that, we
He took the fight to Donald Trump. We want them in the jar. I think we instilled fighting spirit and I think we were the first group. They drew blood on this effectively where I live, you stole one of my debts, almost friendly, which one about Trump being infirm and couldn't put a certain together. You I'm glad you did. I mean, but we might have the most original work right, making that his infirmity, actually we were, they the most ivy. I mean it's, not it's not like it's a pretty obvious thing, don't make me show both of them. We do we have that one. Can we show Ares glacier it's pretty funny. We do this, and then you did you where's about a month. If you have a Joe it now
don't have. Will you have at some time in the next five minutes. Ok! Well, you know, there's a dozen violators Ellen around Resort, Antipater, passing away money and answers and media you dont, give I mean I think liberals should definitely focus on those groups on the ground, doing the registering in places like Arizona in Georgia and Texas, which is the next eight that's gonna, turn blue and believe it or not. People think I'm crazy. When I say this, but Mississippi demographically should be a competitive state, but it has a black community. There has been disenfranchise. I see and has been kept out so this underground, organizing conflicts states like Georgia and we would agree, wouldn't we may know I used to be able to book you two guys on the panel and have you argue because this is a nature. This is one of the few shows that still has people from both sides of the eye or opinions. You may not agree with. Maybe it's the only show left. I mean MSNBC. Has conservatives like you but
you're only invited to bring the part of you. That is going to say something that, audience already agreed with. Would you agree with that? The four short? Well, you you're not going to bring conservatives credentials and I've set of sat up, sat on a lot of tv sets where you gonna break and allow the reporters pick up the phone and they look at their twitter feeds and the invisible Maud MOB police. is right, watch, ok to say to stay inside the lines and we have a profound problem, a crisis of cowardice, in this country. I agree everywhere. You look cowardice. Now the fact tat you have someone who incited insurrection clear as day can Republicans vote to impeach which is better than a corral about that. All of that everyone everywhere everywhere. You look, cowardly, ok, but isn't it also cowardice to not
ever say anything on MSNBC that you really believe, except the things that are going to make that audience go. Yes, I I mean I've watched you and Michaels. And Rick Wilson and the coal Wallis for Years- and you have you are saying, conservatives I agree with a lot of what you said, but I appreciate that where's, a dialogue now you're just somewhere where you're you're not allowed to well you're, not you I can confirm the one true opinion. It's not just on the media side I mean I had I checked out on. My part cares and he talked about how he's trying to get people to come on and defend Trump, to show that size of side of the coin ocean, but they won't go there. I didn't wanna, be challenges much safer and Fox NEWS, Lander or need max or oil and so
really, I think, cuts both ways. I think those shows at the very least do once or that ideological diversity, but also the problem, isn't partisanship promised people that had given up on the truth. We can't even argue the sky was blue anymore. That real progress is blue That's the point right. At the end of the day right we have. We have two sides and american politics right now, there's a problem accuracy, side and there's an autocracy side, and I really don't want to pay tax rates. When the question of democracy is on the line, and so I think we ve seen spy five years of bad shit insanity and I think that network it's it's been. We, I haven't been engaged in a policy discussion on american television since two, thousand fifteen, since he ran on any idea where I think
besides, because they don't want to bring it up, but you might say something that I already and does not agree with is. I think there are more acts of central issue there are, but it's not the only issue, their own fuckin. Twenty four percent: sulphur, no trump ideology, not things do come up. If you want to bring them up, they dont want to bring them up. There's crazy shit going on on the left. Would you not agree with absolutely apps where illegal wars of border isn't there, there is AIDS stride. In a liberal culture, autocratic, on the last that a mirror right? on the tromp right when you look at when you look when you look at the sewers of twitter, for example, Do you not agree our angry left? I don't I don't. They have a lot of power right power. They certainly have pirated disappear per day. They do not run the Democratic party. It'll. Do not dare
They are not in power, but where there is a liberalism in american society Run, the democratic hardly affect the way the Democrats make decisions selling two thousand for you may remember it was. Reckless election George Bush, one by the margin of Ohio, and there is an end? higher conspiracy theory on the left that keyboard machines had flipped about sound familiar, and you know what conspiracy theories on the left on the left, pushing this with Alex Jones and there within a single person in authority for people like me in the activism world that took these people seriously. In fact, I kick them out of my sight daily coast because they were a cancer on our side. I think tat, I think, tat I think that's true from a matter of power and authority, but it's also true, I think, to bills point that there is a liberal.
from that exists on the far right, a fascist writers and liberalism that exists on the far left where they have lost touch with a court. Value of the enlightenment of dean notion of free speech, free thinking, free ideas, free debate, and this is culturally, manifests itself, I think most acutely anymore. Work in universities and I think we're turn yeah degeneration of kids, who have no great, who have no attachment to reality that our triggered our senses of that's like that. Their debt are not prepared in any conceivable way for life. That's why those and I said to the Congress and you have a whole bunch of new friends and new enemies, because no one's thinking anymore, it's just oh now, he's on the blue team, actually
it's more bleak them that I don't think he has meaning France take any democratic of fat with the least getting a lot of other boys. Yes, we could go to the abbey and worst Hollywood hero tonight, but he shouldn't go to a conservative right. Ok, it's time for new rules before we start sending mental health counselors to respond to nine hours seven, nine, eleven and nine one one nine. One one calls instead of police as many to fund the police activists want what's in for their safety by giving them some form of protection like undone and since It must respond in a timely manner. Let's also give them a car with a siren and then make sure it's known to others that they have legal authority to resolve disturbances. They probably should have a badge.

Twelve in China can is on the market, use that henceforth cast until Doc MIKE censure, to receive twenty percent off your next stagnant. Your car, someone must tell me why nobody has ever ever has a near death experience where they start to go to Hell. It's always up to happen.

Thank you for your service. just something to say to the people doing the dirty work, so we can feel better about not doing in ourselves and even before the pandemic hit. America was already
well into being a gig economy which sounds kind of hip, like you're in Iraq ban except, got and Iraq Vanier delivering hot chicken cover your rent, even side. Hustle sounds kind of cool like you're. A private eye runs drugs, but. Really earned over driver who also makes jewelry out of seashells, you can call it remote work, but what's really remote is any chance of getting health insurance. What are over and lift really but americanized rickshaws? It's not like it's what anyone wants to do. No, never had a friend throw up.

Women's biological clocks are taking geyser balding.
In the last fifty years, the share of Americans who live alone has doubled, which begs the question: if single people are such a large part of this country, now, why do our political or economic policies always still revolve around families. Just once I'd like to hear a politician- I'm congressmen, Harry Schooner and I'm not for working families, I'm for people Babies ended up in the reservoir tip. Last week Mitt Romney litter, Billy said this. He said american families are seeing greater financial strain? We have not reformed our family support system and nearly decade.
