Republicans Have Been Working For YEARS To Rig The 2020 Election


Republicans will do anything to win elections
as long as it doesn’t involve coming up with policies that are actually going to help American
citizens. That’s the one thing they will not do, but
what they’re doing across the south and that is both the southwest and these southeast
here in the United States is that Republican controlled states since the year 2013 have
just been shutting down polling places left and right. In fact, almost 1200 polling places across
the American south have shut down in just the last six years gearing up for a massive
attempted rigging of the 2020 presidential election and here’s how they were able to
get away with it. Obviously 2013 we had that massive supreme
court case for the voting rights act of 1965 where they went in there and tried to dismantle
the parts that said, hey, all these states that have to go through a review of any voting
changes because they have a history of discrimination. How about we scrap that because that’s what
the southern states wanted. Eric Holder and the Justice Department at
the time went in there and tried to save it and did a really horrible job against the
very conservative court. And the conservative court said, nope, no
more reviews. You discriminatory states no longer have to
submit your plans for review before you can enact them and you can basically just do whatever
the hell you want. We’re not going to double check Ya. And that’s what’s happening today as a, a
major majority of these polling places that have shut down the roughly 1200 of them happen
to be in minority areas. Here’s what’s happening in the American south
that is causing more and more of these polling places to close. And it seems counterintuitive, but we are
having larger voter turnout. Larger voter turnout you would think would
mean, oh, we need to open more polling places. But that’s not what the Republicans who control
every one of these states wanted to do. Instead they said, hey, high voter turnout
always hurts Republicans. We saw what happened in Georgia. I mean we saw what happened in the Alabama
special, a Senate race when Roy Moore got defeated. But there were other reasons for that, but
still freaked Republicans out enough to start closing polling places. Florida always neck and neck, no matter who
the people are. It’s always neck and neck. Texas starting to look a little more blue
so they’re trying to shut them down. Arizona, same thing. Nevada, same thing. And all they can think to do is we’ll, we’ll
just close the poll in places where the Democrats go and vote. You know those areas with more black people,
we just will shut those down. So now you’re going to drive 40 miles over
to the next precinct to cast your vote. Oh, but we’re also going to cut down early
voting. So you really only have, you know, the one
or two days to do it. We’re going to cut down the polling station
hours cause we don’t want to have to have people standing there all day and this is
all forms of voter suppression that in the past would’ve been prohibited by the Voting
Rights Act. But the supreme court killed that and that’s
why we have what we have today and make no mistake about it. This is so that Republicans can rig elections
because the only way they can win is by cheating.

BREAKING Trump again pushes claim FBI informant planted for political purposes – News


Trump again pushes claim FBI informant planted
for political purposes. President Donald Trump suggested Friday that
an FBI informant who made contact with his campaign during the 2016 election was “paid
a fortune,” boosting the unsubstantiated allegation a “spy” was implanted in his campaign for
political purposes. “The Democrats are now alluding to the the
[sic] concept that having an Informant placed in an opposing party’s campaign is different
than having a Spy, as illegal as that may be,” the president wrote in a series of tweets.
“But what about an ‘Informant’ who is paid a fortune and who ‘sets up’ way earlier than
the Russian Hoax?” He added: “Can anyone even imagine having
Spies placed in a competing campaign, by the people and party in absolute power, for the
sole purpose of political advantage and gain? And to think that the party in question, even
with the expenditure of far more money, LOST!” Trump over the past week has hammered officials
in the Department of Justice over the revelation an informant was used to make contact with
his campaign team as part of the FBI’s investigation into Russian election meddling in 2016.
Trump tweeted Wednesday that “SPYGATE could be one of the biggest political scandals in
history!” Democratic officials have pushed back on allegations
that the FBI’s use of an informant constitutes spying on the Trump campaign, as the president
and his allies have alleged. White House chief of staff John Kelly attended
two briefings at the DOJ on Thursday regarding the FBI informant. The presence of White House
officials at the summits, scheduled to allow lawmakers to review classified materials about
the federal probes into Russian meddling, drew sharp rebukes from Democratic officials.

Tucker: Trump calls Democrats’ bluff on illegal immigrants


>>Tucker: GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO “TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT.” WHAT IF SOMEONE YOU HATED OFFERED TO PAY OFF YOUR MORTGAGE, PUT YOUR KIDS THROUGH COLLEGE, DELIVER A TRACTOR-TRAILER FULL OF SNICKERS BARS TO YOUR HOUSE. YOU’D BE CONFUSED AT FIRST AND SUSPICIOUS. WHY IS AN ENEMY GIVING YOU THE GIFT OF A LIFETIME? IN THE END, IF YOU WERE SMART, YOU WOULD TAKE THE GIFTS. IT WOULD BE TOO GOOD TO PASS UP. SOMETHING VERY MUCH LIKE THAT HAPPENED IN WASHINGTON LAST NIGHT FOR “THE WASHINGTON POST” REPORTED THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN DEBATING MOVING SOME OF THE THOUSANDS OF MIGRANTS AMASSING ON OUR SOUTHERN BORDER INTO VARIOUS SELF-PROCLAIMED CENTURY CITIES ACROSS THE UNITED STATES BY THE PRESIDENT LATER CONFIRMED THAT AS TRUE IN A TWEET AS OF TONIGHT. THAT POLICY REMAINS UNDER CONSIDERATION. TALK ABOUT GREAT NEWS FOR BLUE AMERICA! THE LEFT LOVES IMPOVERISHED AMERICANS FROM THE DEVELOPING WORLD, WHY WOULDN’T THEY? THEY MAKE OUR CITIES SAFER, THEY TELL US WHERE THEY IMPROVE OUR SCHOOLS, THEY PROVIDE THE BACKBONE OF OUR ECONOMY, THEY DO THE WORK WE WANT TO DO. THEY ARE DIVERSE, THEY ARE OUR STRENGTH. THEY ARE THE BEST OF AMERICA, EVEN THOUGH TECHNICALLY THEY ARE NOT AMERICAN. CENTURY CITIES LOVE THEM BEST OF ALL. THAT’S WHY THEY BECOME SANCTUARIES FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. EVERY DEMOCRAT NOW RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT HAS AFFIRMED THIS REPEATEDLY.>>WOULD YOU TAKE THE WALL DOWN NOW HERE?>>YES. ABSOLUTELY.>>OFFER A HOME FOR REFUGEES BUT THAT IS WHO WE ARE. THAT’S OUR VALUES. THAT’S PART OF WHAT WE DO.>>SO INSTEAD OF BUILDING A WALL OR CLOSING THE BORDER, WE SHOULD CHOOSE COMPASSION INSTEAD OF CRUELTY.>>WE WELCOME REFUGEES AND BRING PEOPLE OUT OF OUT OF THES PEOPLE OUT OF OUT OF THEA PEOPLE OUT OF OUT OF THEO PEOPLE OUT OF OUT OF THES PEOPLE OUT OF OUT OF THE.>>IMMIGRATION IS NOT A SECURITY ISSUE. IT IS ECONOMIC AND HUMANITARIAN AND A FAMILY ISSUE. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN ILLEGAL HUMAN.>>Ed: “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN ILLEGAL HUMAN.” GOOD POINT, KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND! WE APPRECIATE YOUR ELOQUENCE. OAKLAND MAYOR LIBBY SCHAAF BELIEVES THAT SO DEEPLY THAT LAST YEAR SHE WARNED ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN HER CITY, INCLUDING SEVERAL CRIMINALS, THAT AN I.C.E. RAID WAS COMING. SHE WANTED TO GIVE THEM TIME TO FLEE AND SHE DID. AS SHE LATER EXPLAINED, SHE SAID SHE HAD NO CHOICE. ALL GOOD PEOPLE WANT MORE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN THEIR CITIES.>>IT IS A CONTINUED PERPETUATION OF A RACIST LIE THAT IMMIGRANTS ARE NOT VALUED MEMBERS OF OUR SOCIETY. WE IN OAKLAND KNOW BETTER. WE IN OAKLAND HAVE A COMMUNITY THAT WELCOMES AND HONORS ALL PEOPLE NO MATTER WHERE THEY CAME FROM OR HOW THEY GOT HERE.>>Tucker: THEY ARE WELCOMING. IN FACT THE WHOLE STATE IS WELCOMING. IN THE INAUGURAL ADDRESS, THE INCOMING GOVERNOR GAVIN NEWSOM ECHOED THOSE WORDS, EVERYONE CAN COME TO CALIFORNIA, HE SAID. ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE.>>WE NEED TO BUILD A HOUSE STRONGER THAN THE COMING STORMS, A HOUSE THAT PROVIDE SHELTER TO ALL WHO NEED IT AND SANCTUARY TO ALL WHO SEEK IT. WE WILL NOT HAVE ONE HOUSE FOR THE RICH, AND ONES FOR THE POOR, OR ONES FOR THE NATIVE-BORN AND ONE FOR THE REST.>>Tucker: THE LEFT REALLY COULDN’T BE CLEARER ON THIS QUESTION. ALL IMMIGRATION IS GOOD. MORE IMMIGRATION IS BETTER. THERE IS NO DISTINCTION BETWEEN LEGAL AND ILLEGAL VARIETIES OF IMMIGRATION. AND IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ANY OF THIS, YOU ARE A WHITE NATIONALIST. THAT’S WHAT THEY SAY ALMOST EVERY DAY FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS BUT WE WATCH CAREFULLY, SO HAVE YOU. NOW HERE, COMPLETELY OUT OF THE BLUE, COMES THE MAN THEY DESPISE THE MOST IN THE WORLD, DONALD J. TRUMP, OFFERING THE ONE THING THEY WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING, MORE IMMIGRANTS. IMMEDIATELY DELIVERED RIGHT TO THEIR DOOR AT FEDERAL EXPENSE. IT MUST’VE BEEN LIKE CHRISTMAS MORNING. YOU THINK YOU ARE GETTING ANOTHER PAIR OF SOCKS, YET THERE IT IS. A PONY TETHERED TO YOUR MAILBOX. HOLY SMOKES, AMAZING. BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. THAT’S NOT HOW THEY RESPONDED. THE LEFT WASN’T HAPPY ABOUT TRUMP’S OFFER. THEY WERE SHOCKED, THEY WERE COMPLETELY ENRAGED. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS, THEY SAID? IT’S “DUMPING.” DUMPING. LIKE YOU DO WITH GARBAGE OR USED TRUCK TIRES IN THE WOODS. THEY HAD LINE OF “MOTHER JONES” RED, DONALD TRUMP WANTS TO DUMP ASYLUM-SEEKERS ON THE STREET OF AMERICAN CITIES. DEMOCRATIC CITIES. “THE WASHINGTON POST” GREG MILLER, DUMP THEM ON THE CITIES TO PUNISH POLITICAL RIVALS. THE WHITE HOUSE WANTED TO “DUMP REFUGEES IN REFUGEE CITIES. PEOPLE CAUGHT THAT NASTY. ALMOST SIMULTANEOUSLY, IN CONCERT, BOTH CNN AND MSNBC RAN HEADLINES ACCUSING THE WHITE HOUSE OF WANTING TO “DUMP IMMIGRANTS INTO CITIES.” SO WHAT’S THE MESSAGE THE LEFT IS SENDING US, THAT IMMIGRANTS ARE TRASH? SOMETHING YOU DROP OFF AS A CRUEL PRANK LIKE A FLAMING BAG OF DOG WASTE? IF YOU WANT TO DEFILE SOMEONE’S PRISTINE CITY, YOU “DUMP IMMIGRANTS ON IT?” OH. THAT SOUNDS A LITTLE… SEARCHING FOR THE WORD HERE… RACIST! A LOT RACIST, ACTUALLY! BUT NANCY PELOSI AGREES WITH IT, TURNS OUT. SHE LIVES IN ONE OF THESE CITIES THAT MIGHT BE DUMPED ON, SO SHE IMMEDIATELY ISSUED A STATEMENT DECRYING IT, “THE EXTENT THIS ADMINISTRATION CYNICISM AND CRUELTY CANNOT BE OVERSTATED, USING HUMAN BEINGS, INCLUDING LITTLE CHILDREN, AS PAWNS IN THEIR WORK CAME TO PERPETUATE FEAR AND DEMONIZE INDIVIDUALS IS DESPICABLE” FOR THIS IS CONFUSING. IT DOESN’T SEEM TO MAKE SENSE BUT HOW CAN THE PRESENCE OF IMMIGRANTS “PERPETUATE FEAR”? IMMIGRANTS ARE DANGEROUS FOR THEY TOLD US THAT A THOUSAND TIMES BUT THEY ARE SAFER THAN YOU ARE. THEY ARE AMAZING. MUCH MORE AMAZING THAN YOU ARE. POLICY SAYS THAT A LOT. WHY IS IT BAD THAT TRUMP WANTS US AND MORE IMMIGRANTS TO SAN FRANCISCO. SAN FRANCISCO IS A SECONDARY CITY. IT’S AVERTED FEDERAL LAW IN THE HOPE THAT MORE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WOULD COME THERE, AND THEY MAY BE COMING, BUT SAN FRANCISCO IS UPSET. “WELL, SAYS A NEW ANCHORS, TRUMP’S PLAN IS ILLEGAL.” YOU CAN SEND MIGRANTS TO AMERICAN CITIES THEY TELL US. THERE IS A PROCESS. IT REALLY? THROUGH THE CITY OF LOUISVILLE, MAINE, WHEN AN ENTIRE POPULATION OF SOMALIS WAS MOVED FROM THE REFUGEE CAMP TO TO THE ALREAY BELEAGUERED CITY. NO. NO PROCESS. THE GOVERNMENT JUST DID IT. SAME THING HAPPENED TO HALE ATTENDING PENNSYLVANIA, OTHER COUNTLESS PLACES ACROSS THIS COUNTRY. THAT’S HOW IT WORKS, THAT’S HOW IT ALWAYS WORKS. WHEN YOU TRY TO DO THE SAME THING TO THE CITY WHERE NANCY PELOSI LIVES, IT’S SUPPOSEDLY “ILLEGAL.” THIS IS GETTING CONFUSING. SO LET’S MAKE IT EASIER FOR EVERYONE. HERE’S A LIST OF NEIGHBORHOODS THAT CAN USE SOME IMMEDIATE REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT. THESE ARE AFFLUENT PLACES THAT POLITICALLY LIBERAL’S MOST AFFLUENT PLACES ARE AS A MATTER OF POLICY AND CONVICTION. THEY LOVE IMPOVERISHED IMMIGRANTS FROM ABROAD OR THEY JUST DON’T REALLY HAVE ANY YET. LET’S CHANGE THAT. FIRST IN LINE WOULD BE BEACON HILL IN BOSTON. THAT NEIGHBORHOOD HAS AN IMMEDIATE INCOME OF UNDER $20,000 A YEAR BEFORE PERSPECTIVE, THAT’S DOUBLE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE. IT’S STRIKINGLY NOT DIVERSE, SO IT’LL BE GREATLY STRENGTHENED BY THOUSANDS OF MIGRANTS. AS JOHN KERRY WHO LIVES IN BEACON WILL WARNED US, FEAR OF THE OUTSIDER, FEAR OF SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T LOOK LIKE YOU IS AN ATTACK ON AMERICA ITSELF. THAT’S HEAVY. LET’S STOP THAT ATTACK AND DO IT BY SENDING, I DO NOT KNOW, HALF OF THE MOST RECENT LIKE A CARAVAN TO JOHN KERRY ZIP CODE. HE’LL BE THRILLED. HE’LL HAVE TO BE THRILLED. WE’LL HEAD BACK TO THE UPPER EAST SIDE OF NEW YORK. FORMER MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG USED TO LIVE THERE. UNFORTUNATELY FOR HIM, NONE OF THEM ACTUALLY LIVE IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD. IN A CITY WHERE KIDS SPEAK TO CLOSELY 200 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES IN THE NEW YORK CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS, MICHAEL BLOOMBERG’S ZIP CODE IS SHOCKINGLY LACKING IN DIVERSITY. LET’S CHANGE THAT, SHALL WE? WHILE WE ARE AT IT, LET’S INTEGRATE THAT SCHOOLS BOTH SCHOOLS ARE FAMOUSLY AND RIGOROUSLY PROGRESSIVE. THEY KNOW THAT DIVERSITY IS OUR STRENGTH. BUT HOW MANY NEWLY ARRIVED GUATEMALAN IMMIGRANTS HAVE THEY ENROLLED THIS YEAR? NOT ENOUGH. LET’S SEE IF WE CAN GET THAT NUMBER TO OVER 50% BY SEPTEMBER. EISENHOWER DID SOMETHING VERY SIMILAR AT CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL AT LITTLE ROCK IN 1956 BIT LET’S SEE IF TRUMP CAN DO IT WITH COLLEGIATE AND SPENDS. THEN LET’S GO TO THE COLLAR IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD RIGHT HERE IN WASHINGTON. BARACK OBAMA LIVES THERE. AS HE PUTS IT, WE ARE A NATION OF IMMIGRANTS. IT ALWAYS AMERICA A BIG ADVANTAGE OVER OTHER NATIONS. THAT MAY BE TRUE. YET THERE ARE VIRTUALLY NO POOR IMMIGRANTS IN ALABAMA WHERE HE LIVES. LET’S IMPORT A FEW THOUSAND AND DROP THEM IN HOW CAN OBAMA SAY NO? OF COURSE, HE WOULD SAY NO. HE WOULD BE LIVID, NOBODY HATES DIVERSITY MORE THAN RICH LIBERALS, THE VERY PEOPLE PUSHING IT. LET’S HOPE IMMIGRANTS ARE WATCHING ALL OF THIS ON TV AND DRAWING THEIR OWN CONCLUSION. THE LEFT CAN SAY THEY LOVE YOU.

Bongino: Amash should leave Republican party immediately


TIME. BRIAN: LET’S TALK ABOUT — DECIDED THE PRESIDENT DID OBSTRUCT JUSTICE. AND HE IS THE FIRST REPUBLICAN TO BREAK. AND GIVE THE HOPE FOR IMPEACHMENT TO DEMOCRATS EVERYWHERE. WHAT’S YOUR RESPONSE?>>JUSTIN AMASH SHOULD LEAVE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY A SAP. THAT GIVES ME ABSOLUTELY NO JOY IN SAYING THAT. IT BRINGS ME MISERY. I WILL TELL YOU WHY, I HAVE BEEN A VOCAL SUPPORT OF CONGRESSMAN AMASH FOR A VERY LONG TIME. I COME FROM THE LIBERTARIAN WING OF THE PARTY MYSELF. I HAVE BEEN OUT THERE ON RADIO HOSTING. I MAY HAVE SAID IT ON THIS STATION BEFORE. I THOUGHT HE WAS ONE OF THE MORE PRINCIPLED GUYS IN CONGRESS. TURNS OUT HE IS THE BIGGEST PHONE UPTHERE RIGHT NOW. EITHER HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND THE CASE. THE TOTALITY OF THE CASE AT ALL OR HE IS DOING SOMETHING TO GET HIS NAME IN THE MEDIA, WHY? I DON’T KNOW. DOES HE HAVE BIGGER ASPIRATIONS OTHER THAN BEING A CONGRESSMAN? THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LIBERTARIAN CLAIMING AN INNOCENT MAN, PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO DID NOTHING WRONG IN THIS CASE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED AND THROWN OUT OF OFFICE FOR IF I CAN DISHES CRIMES THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN. IT’S OUTRAGEOUS HE CLAIMED THAT.>>NEVER A FAN OF JUSTIN AMASH. A TOTAL LIGHT WEIGHT WHO OPPOSES ME AND IDEAS AND POLICIES FOR THE SAKE OF GETTING HIS NAME OUT THERE THROUGH CONTROVERSY. IF HE ACTUALLY READ THE BIASED MUELLER REPORT COMPOSED BY 18 ANGRY DEMS WHO HATE TRUMP, HE WOULD SEE IT WAS NEVERTHELESS STRONG ON NO COLLUSION AND ULTIMATELY NO OBSTRUCTION. ANYWAY, HOW DO YOU OBJECT STRUCTURE WHEN THERE IS NO CRIME AND IN FACT CRIMES WERE COMMITTED BY THE OTHER SIDE. JUMP IS A LOSER WHO SADLY PLAYS RIGHT INTO OUR OPPONENTS’ HANDS. JUSTIN WAS TWEETING OVER THE WEEKEND THE PRESIDENT ENGAGED IN IMPEACHABLE CONDITIONING BARR MISREPRESENTED MUELLER. WHY DO YOU THINK HE IS DOING THIS IF IS HE A REPUBLICAN?>>I DON’T KNOW MAYBE HE HAS SOME BIGGER ASPIRATIONS MAYBE RUN AGAINST THE PRESIDENT. MANE HE WANTS TO BE A SENATOR. OBVIOUSLY SOME KIND OF MEDIA GRABBING HEADLINE I DON’T KNOW. I CAN’T FIGURE IT OUT. WHAT’S LIBERTARIAN ABOUT? YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO SUPPORT LIBERTIES GIVEN BILL OF RIGHTS. DONALD TRUMP AND HIS TEAM ABSOLUTELY KNOW HE WAS SPIED ON. WE KNOW FOURTH AMENDMENT RIGHTS. RIGHTS WERE THRONE OUT THE WINDOW AND TRASHED. AND YOU ARE A LIBERTARIAN SUPPORTING FURTHER POTENTIAL CRIMINAL ACTION DOWN THE LINE AGAINST THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE. IS HE UNAWARE OF THIS CASE THAT A CRIME WAS FABRICATED OUT OF THIN AIR, OUT OF WEAPONIZED POLICE STATE ASSETS THAT WENT AFTER THE PRESIDENT AND HIS TEAM? DID HE MISS THAT WHOLE STORY? AND ON THIS OBSTRUCTION THING, IT’S ABSURD. THE PRESIDENT TOLD JIM COMEY AND JIM COMEY’S OWN NOTES TO INVESTIGATE PEOPLE WHO WERE SATELLITE IF HE THOUGHT HE DID SOMETHING WRONG. AS A DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF THE FBI ADMITTED UP ON CAPITOL HILL THERE WAS, QUOTE, NO EFFORT TO OBSTRUCT HIS INVESTIGATION. WHAT IS AMASH TALKING ABOUT? DID HE MISS THIS ENTIRE CASE AND JUST JUMP IN AT THE END AND SEND OUT A RANDOM TWEET ON THE WEEKEND BECAUSE HE WAS BORED? REALLY THAT THEY THICK. STEVE: DAN, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES BILL BARR MADE IT CLEAR SPYING DID OCCUR AND NOW THEY ARE LOOKING INTO. THEY ARE INVESTIGATING THE INVESTIGATORS AND THE INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORT IS GOING TO COME OUT SO MAYBE WE WILL HAVE SOME CLARITY THERE. MEANWHILE, LET’S GO AHEAD, WE ARE GOING TO GO BACK IN THE WAY BACK MACHINE TO 194 WHEN JOE BIDEN THE SENATOR FROM THE GREAT STATE OF DELAWARE WAS IN THE SENATE. HE WAS ONE OF THE SPONSORS OF THE CRIME BILL. WHICH THESE DAYS HE IS TRYING TO EXPLAIN AWAY WHY HE SUPPORTED IT. WELL, BOBBY RUSH, A DEMOCRAT FROM CHICAGO, APPARENTLY WE HAVE LATCHED ON TO SOME TAPE BACK IN-A COUPLE YEARS AGO WHERE HE SAYS THAT THIS CRIME BILL WAS THE WORST THING TO HAPPEN TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY IN 23EU69 COMMUNITY IN 53EU69 COMMUNITY IN 50EU69 COMMUNITY IN 50 Y69 COMMUNITY IN 50 YEARS, LISTEN TO THIS.>>I AM ASHAMED OF MY VOTE. THAT WAS THE WORST VOTE AS I LOOK BACK OVER THE YEARS THAT I HAVE TAKEN SINCE I WAS IN CONGRESS. CRACK COCAINE AND THE CRIME BILL WAS THE TWO WORST INNER PROBLEMS, CATASTROPHES THAT THE BLACK COMMUNITY HAS SUFFERED THROUGH IN THE LAST 50 YEARS. I ABSOLUTELY APOLOGIZE FOR VOTING FOR THAT BILL. WE HAVE NOT ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING OTHER THAN FURTHER DESTRUCTION OF OUR COMMUNITIES.>>DAN, WHEN JOE BIDEN WAS TOLD COMMENTS AND ASKED IF HE WAS ASHAMED OF THE BILL DID HE NOT WAIVER, WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>THIS IS INTERESTING. BECAUSE BIDEN IS GOING TO HAVE TO — DURING THE PRIMARY SEASONAL WE ARE IN NOW FOR THE DEMOCRATS. HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO RUN AWAY FROM OLD JOE BIDEN AND LATCH HIMSELF TO NEW OBAMA JOE BIDEN AS HIS VICE PRESIDENT, RIGHT? SOME OF THIS OLDER VOTES WERE MORE FROM THE MODERATE WING OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AND, STEVE, THAT’S NOT WHERE THE DEMOCRATS ARE RIGHT NOW. THE ENERGY IS WITH THE BERNIE SANDERS SOCIALIST TYPES, RIGHT? AFTER THE PRIMARY, IF HE GETS OUT OF IT AND WINS, HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO GO BACK TO OLD JOE BIDEN AND EXIT THE OBAMA-BIDEN VICE PRESIDENT CHARACTER BECAUSE THE OBAMA RECORD WAS AWFUL ON THE ECONOMY. OBAMACARE AND EVERYTHING ELSE. HE HAS GOT AN INTERESTING DILEMMA. RIGHT NOW. THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT WHERE THE DEMOCRATS ARE THE ENERGY IS WITH THE AOC. BRIAN: THE ONLY THING DINK AND WE HAVE GOT RUN. THE ONLY THING DIFFERENT IS HE HAS THIS HUGE LEAD. IF THE DEMOCRATS ARE WAY TO THE LEFT, WHY DOES HE HAVE A 20 POINT LEAD?>>IT’S NAME I.D. ONLY, BRIAN. REMEMBER, PRIMARY EVERYBODY IS A DEMOCRAT. THERE IS NO OTHER DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS OTHER THAN YOUR NAME. PEOPLE SEE A NAME, THAT’S WHO THEY GO FOR. THAT’S GOING TO CHANGE AS THE DEBATE STARTS. POLLS MEAN NOTHING RIGHT

Donald Trump Just Revealed His SECRET Plan to SAVE the Republican Party!


Donald Trump Just Revealed His SECRET Plan
to SAVE the Republican Party! By Danny Gold. Donald Trump is sick and tired of hearing
all these people in the press calling Republicans racist! It�s mean, uncalled for, and totally untrue. Now he has a plan to restore the Republican�s
good name as the party of ALL Americans� HE IS GONNA WIN THEM BACK WITH SUCCESS!! The President told Bill O�Reilly that, �The first thing they do with the Republicans
or conservatives is the racist card, they pull out the racist card, they always do that
� it�s not just me � I mean they do it with everybody.� And when Bill asked him how he was gonna end
the Racist lies about Republicans, Trump�s answer was nice and simple: �I think success will do that, I think jobs
will do that, I think companies coming back into our country will do that.� Yup! Like I said, success is Donald Trump�s plan. He knows one of the BIG problems in many minority
communities is a lack of good jobs. He figures he can EARN their respect by simply
being a good president to them. Trump�s plan is great. It is the total opposite of what the Democrats
do when they promise magic fixes for these communities during election years then ignore
them. If you want to help Trump�s plan succeed,
then do us all a favor and volunteer with a local organization to help provide materials
to underprivileged youth. Let�s show them that REPUBLICANS CARE!!

Anti-Trump, Pro-Impeachment Rep. Justin Amash Declares Independence from Republican Party


Libertarian-leaning Michigan Rep. Justin Amash,
who in May became the only House Republican to call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment,
announced Thursday he was leaving the Republican Party. Amash made this announcement in an Op-Ed for
The Washington Post, which identified him as an independent rather than as a Republican. “Today, I’m declaring my independence,”
he tweeted out. In his Op-Ed, Amash wrote he has “become
disenchanted with party politics and frightened by what I see from it.” “The two-party system has evolved into an
existential threat to American principles and institutions,” he wrote. Amash quoted former President George Washington’s
farewell address, in which the Founding Father decried partisanship. “The disorders and miseries which result
gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power
of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able
or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own
elevation, on the ruins of public liberty,” Washington said. Amash believes Washington’s worst fears
have come true. “Americans have allowed government officials,
under assertions of expediency and party unity, to ignore the most basic tenets of our constitutional
order: separation of powers, federalism and the rule of law,” Amash said. “The result has been the consolidation of
political power and the near disintegration of representative democracy.” These are consequences of a mind-set among
the political class that loyalty to party is more important than serving the American
people or protecting our governing institutions,” he added. “The parties value winning for its own sake,
and at whatever cost. Instead of acting as an independent branch
of government and serving as a check on the executive branch, congressional leaders of
both parties expect the House and Senate to act in obedience or opposition to the president
and their colleagues on a partisan basis.” Amash continued by claiming “most Americans
are not rigidly partisan and do not feel well represented by either of the two major parties.” It was not until the very end of his piece
that Amash officially announced he’s leaving the GOP. “Today, I am declaring my independence and
leaving the Republican Party,” he wrote. “No matter your circumstance, I’m asking
you to join me in rejecting the partisan loyalties and rhetoric that divide and dehumanize us.” As mentioned above, Amash has previously made
headlines for calling for Trump’s impeachment. His latest move will no doubt fuel speculation
that he could run for president on the Libertarian Party ticket in 2020, though Amash has not
yet said if he has any plans to do so.

Trump hails ‘big victory’ in Supreme Court asylum order


GOOD MORNING AT HOME AND TO YOU. THE HIGH COURT REVERSING DECADES OF U.S. POLICY ALLOWING THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO DENY ASYLUM TO MIGRANTS WHO PASS THROUGH ANOTHER COUNTRY FIRST ON THEIR WAY TO THE U.S. BORDER WITHOUT FIRST SEEKING PROTECTION IN THAT PREVIOUS COUNTRY. KELLYANNE CONWAY, COUNSEL TO THE PRESIDENT WITH US ON “AMERICA’S NEWSROOM” TWO HOURS AGO SAID THIS.>>HUGE VICTORY, THE SECOND VICTORY THIS SUMMER HANDED BY THE SUPREME COURT FOR THE PRESIDENT’S VISION ON BORDER SECURITY. IF YOU ARE COMING HERE SEEKING TO COME INTO THIS COUNTRY, YOU MUST FIRST SEEK SAFE HAVEN IN THE COUNTRIES THAT YOU PASS THROUGH.>>Bill: HERE IS JOHN ROBERTS BEGINNING HIS DAY FROM THE NORTH LAWN THERE. GOOD MORNING.>>BILL, GOOD MORNING TO YOU. BIG VIEK — VICTORY FOR THE WHITE HOUSE LAST NIGHT. THAT WAS OVERTURNED BY THE NINTH SIR COURT OF APPEALS. THE LAST NIGHT THE SUPREME COURT GAVE THE WHITE HOUSE THE BIG VICTORY TO GO FORWARD IN ALL 50 STATES AT LEAST TEMPORARY. THE PRESIDENT SAID REALLY BIG COURT WINS ON THE BORDER LATELY. FOR THE MOMENT THE U.S. GOVERNMENT CAN DENY ASYLUM CLAIMS FROM MANY PEOPLE WHO TRAVEL THROUGH A THIRD COUNTRY BEFORE REACHING THE UNITED STATES BORDER. IT WILL AFFECT CENTRAL AMERICAN MIGRANTS WHO TRAVEL THROUGH MEXICO. IT WILL FORCE CENTRAL AMERICANS TO APPLY FOR ASYLUM IN THEIR HOME COUNTRIES AND A SAFE THIRD AGREEMENT WITH MEXICO WHICH WOULD ALLOW MIGRANTS TO APPLY FOR ASYLUM IN MEXICO. THE ACTING CUSTOMS AND BORDER PATROL COMMISSIONER SAYING THERE ARE STILL POTENTIAL LEGAL HURDLES AHEAD BUT HE IS ENCOURAGED BY THE SCOTUS DECISION.>>THE FIGHT IS NOT OVER. WE’RE STILL GOING THROUGH HEARINGS ON THE MERITS OF THIS CASE RIGHT NOW. RIGHT NOW WHAT THAT MEANS WHILE THAT IS GOING ON WE CAN FULLY IMPLEMENT THIS RULE ALONG THE ENTIRE SOUTHWEST BORDER AND HIT THIS CRISIS.>>THE SUPREME COURT RULED 7-2 TO ALLOW THE POLICY TO GO FORWARD WHILE THE CASE IS DECIDED ON THE MERITS. TWO DISSENTING JUSTICES GINSBERG AND SOTOMAYOR, EVEN THOUGH OTHERS SIDED WITH THE MAJORITY, DEMOCRATS NOT HAPPY AT ALL WITH WHAT THE JUSTICES DECIDED.>>PEOPLE COVERED BY THIS RULE BARRED FROM SEEKING ASYLUM HERE ARE SIMILARLY SEEKING TO ESCAPE PERSECUTION, VIOLENCE, CONDONED BY THE GOVERNMENTS IN THEIR COUNTRIES, DRUG TRAFFICKING AND THREATS AND THIS KIND OF RULE CONTRAVENES THE SPIRIT, IF NOT THE LETTER OF THIS LAW. AND THE INTENT OF CONGRESS.>>AS THE WHITE HOUSE CELEBRATES VICTORY AT THE SUPREME COURT THE PRESIDENT LOOKS FOR A NEW NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR. MIKE POMPEO HAVING LUNCH WITH THE PRESIDENT TODAY TO DISCUSS IT. SOME TALK ABOUT HE COULD TAKE THE JOB AS KISSINGER DID. MULTIPLE SOURCES ARE WAVING ME OFF THAT POSSIBILITY FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS. POMPEO MAY EXIT TO RUN FOR SENATE NEXT YEAR. YOU WOULD LOSE NOT JUST YOUR SECRETARY OF STATE BUT NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR BUT CONCERN GIVING POMPEO BOTH JOBS WOULD CONCENTRATE A LOT OF POWER UNDER HIM. NON-POMPEO CHOICES THE TOP CONTENDERS ARE STEVEN BEGAN, THOUGH HE MAY BE TAKING A DIFFERENT JOB. RICK LIDEL, THE FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR. ROBERT O’BRIEN AND BRIAN HOOK. WE ARE TOLD THE WHITE HOUSE IS LOOKING FOR A LOW-KEY NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR UNLIKE BOLTON. SOMEBODY MORE IN THE MOLD OF STEVEN HADLEY DURING THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION, WILL THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR BE MORE OF A LIAISON BETWEEN THE COUNSEL AND THE PRESIDENT?

Mark Sanford announces primary challenge to Trump


♪ ♪>>Chris: FORMER SOUTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR AND CONGRESSMAN MARK SANFORD ADMITS A PRIMARY CHALLENGE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD BE A “DAVID VERSUS GOLIATH MOMENT” BUT HE’S THINKING ABOUT IT. GOVERNOR SANFORD JOINS US EXCLUSIVELY HERE IN WASHINGTON AND WELCOME BACK TO “FOX NEWS SUNDAY.”>>Governor Sanford: MY PLEASURE.>>Chris: IT YOU ANNOUNCED IN JULY THAT YOU ARE CONSIDERING RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES AGAINST DONALD TRUMP. HE VISITED EARLY VOTING STATES LIKE NEW HAMPSHIRE AND IOWA. HAVE YOU MADE A DECISION? ARE YOU GOING TO ENTER THE RACE AGAINST DONALD TRUMP?>>Governor Sanford: I HAVE. I PLANNED TO ANNOUNCE THAT BACK HOME THIS WEEK. WE HAD A HURRICANE COME VISIT US ON THE COAST OF SOUTH CAROLINA SO THAT SORT OF DISRUPTED PLANS ON BUT I AM TELLING YOU KNOW I AM GOING TO GET IN.>>Chris: YOU’RE GOING TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT AGAINST DONALD TRUMP IN THE PRIMARIES?>>Governor Sanford: I AM.>>Chris: WHY?>>Governor Sanford: BECAUSE I THINK WE NEED TO HAVE CONVERSATION ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A REPUBLICAN. I THINK IS A REPUBLICAN PARTY WE HAVE LOST OUR WAY AND I SAY SO ON A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT FRONTS. I SAY FIRST AND SORT OF THE EPICENTER OF WHERE I’M COMING FROM IS THAT WE HAVE LOST OUR WAY ON DEBT AND DEFICIT SPENDING. ONE OF THE HALLMARKS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT HAS ALWAYS BEEN HOW MUCH DO WE SPEND. THE ULTIMATE MEASURE OF GOVERNMENT IS HOW MUCH IT SPEND SPENDS. I THINK AS A PARTY WE’VE LOST OUR WAY. THE PRESIDENT HAS CALLED HIMSELF THE KING OF DEBT. A FAMILIARITY AND COMFORTABLE WITH DEBT THAT I THINK IS ULTIMATELY LEADING US IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. WE CAN GET INTO THOSE NUMBERS BUT THE NUMBERS ARE ASTOUNDING. JUST TAKE FOR INSTANCE HAS A DATA POINT THIS LAST DEAL THAT ADDS TO TRILLIONS R ADDS TO TRILLIONS L ADDS TO TRILLIONS I ADDS TO TRILLIONS N ADDS TO TRILLIONS E ADDS TO TRILLIONS T ADDS TO TRILLIONS . A THIRD OF A TRILLION DOLLARS IN NEW SPENDING AND REALLY THERE WASN’T CONVERSATION ON. I’D SAY THE EPICENTER IS WITH GOD TO HAVE NATIONAL CONVERSATION AND REPUBLICAN CONVERSATION ON WHERE ARE WE GOING.>>Chris: I GUESS HERE’S THE QUESTION –>>Governor Sanford: I WILL COME IN WITH SOME OTHERS.>>Chris: YOU GOT TO KNOW YOU BASICALLY HAVE NO CHANCE OF WINNING THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION, SO WHY RUN FOR PRESIDENT?>>Governor Sanford: I THINK HE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE SAID THAT THING TO DONALD TRUMP JUST A MATTER OF MONTHS AGO AS HE FACED THE LIKES OF JEB BUSH AND OTHERS.>>Chris: YOU WANT TO THINK OF A SERIOUS CHANCE?>>Governor Sanford: I’M SAYING YOU NEVER KNOW. I HAVE LISTED MY GOALS, MY PRIMARY GOALS TO SAY LET’S GO OUT AND FORCE AND TRY AND CREATE A CONVERSATION ON THAT WHICH IS NOT BEING TALKED ABOUT IN THIS PRESIDENTIAL CYCLE. ONCE EVERY FOUR YEARS WE HAVE A CHANCE TO HAVE A NATIONAL DEBATE ON WHERE WE’RE GOING NEXT. REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS AND AS AMERICANS AND THE THING THAT HAS BEEN LACKING IN THIS DEBATE HAS BEEN AN EARNEST AND REAL CONVERSATION ON DEBT AND DEFICIT AND GOVERNMENT SPENDING AND I FIND IT ASTOUNDING TO WATCH THE NUMBER OF DEMOCRATIC DEBATES THAT I’VE SEEN AND NO MENTION, NO CONVERSATION ON WHERE WE ARE GOING WITH REGARD TO DEBT AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR EVERYONE OF US.>>Chris: YOUR TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT DONALD TRUMP WAS A LONG SHOT FOUR YEARS AGO. FIRST OF ALL HE WASN’T RUNNING AGAINST AN INCUMBENT PRESIDENT OF HIS OWN PARTY. SECONDLY, LET’S LOOK AT SOME OF THE OBSTACLES THAT YOU FACED BECAUSE THERE ARE SIGNS — 85% APPROVE OF THE JOB THE PRESIDENT IS DOING SO HE’S GOT SUPPORT IN HIS OWN PARTY. A NUMBER OF STATES, INCLUDING HER HOME STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA JUST YESTERDAY HAVE DECIDED NOT TO HOLD PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARIES AT ALL AND THEY ARE HAS DONE AWAY WITH ITS COMMITTEE TO SET UP DEBATES. SO HOW DO YOU GET YOUR MESSAGE OUT — HOW DO YOU EVEN GET ON THE PLAYING FIELD WITH THE PRESIDENT TO HAVE THIS DEBATE?>>Governor Sanford: OR TALK ABOUT IT NOW, TALK ABOUT NATIONAL TELEVISION AND I’VE BEEN TALKING ON A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT OUTLOOKS OVER THE LAST MONTH OF I AS I’VE ENTERTAINED MONTH OF I AS I’VE ENTERTAINET MONTH OF I AS I’VE ENTERTAINEE IDEA. IT WOULD BE TO GO AND SPEND SERIOUS TIME IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND IOWA AND A WHOLE HOST OF OTHER STATES. AGAIN, THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A LONG WALK BUT IT BEGINS WITH THAT FIRST UP AND THAT’S WHAT I’M ANNOUNCING HERE TODAY. I WOULD ALSO SAY THIS, IT’S NOT JUST DEBT AND SPENDING, WHICH IS AGAIN MY PRIMARY FOCUS. THE FACT THAT WE ARE WALKING OUR WAY TOWARDS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL STORM I BELIEVE IN OUR COUNTRY SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION. THAT’S WHAT WE ARE WALKING TOWARD AND I THINK WE NEED TO, AGAIN, TO HAVE A REAL CONVERSATION ABOUT WHAT THAT MEANS FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM AND WHAT THAT MEANS IN OUR ABILITY TO ACHIEVE A JOB, WEALTH, AND ALL THOSE THINGS TO GO WITH THE AMERICAN DREAM. AT WHAT I WOULD ALSO SAY IS WE WILL HAVE A CONVERSATION ON WHERE WE GOING ON TRADE, PROTECTIONISM, TURNING INWARD VERSUS OUTWARD. ONE OF THE HALLMARKS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A FOCUS ON THE WORLD AT LARGE AND THE RECOGNITION OF THE FACT THAT THOUGH WE WERE NOT ULTIMATELY IS A POPULATION THE BIG PLAYER IN THE WORLD, ECONOMICALLY WE WERE BECAUSE WE ENGAGED WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD. IF YOU LOOK AT THE TRUMP TARIFFS, YOU’RE LOOKING AT ABOUT A THOUSAND DOLLARS PER HOUSEHOLD. “THE WALL STREET JOURNAL” HAD AN ARTICLE JUST YESTERDAY TALKING ABOUT YOU’RE LOOKING AT ABOUT A ONE POINT DETERIORATION IN THE RATE OF GROWTH GOING FORWARD. I THINK WE NEED TO HAVE A CONVERSATION THERE. THINK WE NEED TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ON THE DEGREE TO WHICH INSTITUTIONS AND POLITICAL CULTURE ARE BEING DAMAGED BY THIS PRESIDENT. IN THOSE INSTITUTIONS AND THE POLITICAL CULTURE IS REALLY THE GLUE THAT HOLDS TOGETHER OUR BALANCE OF POWER. AND FINALLY I THINK WE NEED TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ON HUMILITY AND ONE’S APPROACH TO POLITICS. AT THE END OF THE DAY, A TWEET IS INTERESTING, MAY BE NEWSWORTHY, BUT IT’S NOT LEADERSHIP AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO SOLVE SOME OF THE PROFOUND PROBLEMS WE HAVE AS AMERICANS BY TWEET.>>Chris: IT YOU’RE IN THE RACE NOW. YOU’RE GOING TO GET ASKED TOUGH QUESTIONS, LET ME ASK YOU THE MOST OBVIOUS ONE. I THINK IT’S FAIR TO SAY, THAT YOUR BEST KNOWN AROUND THE COUNTRY AS THE GOVERNOR WHO DISAPPEARED FOR A WEEK IN 2009. YOUR AIDES SAID YOU WERE HIKING THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL. IN FACT YOU WERE A MARRIED GOVERNOR IN ARGENTINA WITH YOUR THEN-GIRLFRIEND. QUESTION, ISN’T THAT GOING TO BE A DEAL BREAKER FOR A LOT OF VOTERS?>>Governor Sanford: AGAIN, I ACTUALLY WENT ON AN APOLOGY TO HER, IF YOU WANT TO CALL IT THAT, BACK HOME IN THE WAKE OF THAT IN THE LAST YEAR AND A HALF OF MY GOVERNORSHIP. AND WHAT I LEARNED THROUGH THAT IS I GUESS WHAT GENERAL MATTIS TALKS ABOUT, MISTAKES IN LIFE, MISTAKES THAT WE MAKE, OF THE GREAT TUITIONS OF LIFE. THEY COST US, BUT YOU CAN LEARN FROM THEM AND FOR ME, I LEARNED A LEVEL OF HUMILITY, A LEVEL OF EMPATHY THAT I DIDN’T HAVE BEFORE, A LEVEL OF JUDGMENT. IT IS SOMETHING OF GREAT REGRET, IT IS SOMETHING I HAVE APOLOGIZED EXTENSIVELY FOR AND IN CONTRAST TO THE PRESIDENT WHEN HE SAYS THERE’S NOT A SINGLE THING THAT HE REGRETS OR APOLOGIZES FOR, I PROFOUNDLY APOLOGIZE FOR THAT AND I BELIEVE IN THE CHRISTIAN MODEL OF REPENTANCE AND RENEWAL AND A SECOND CHANCE AND WHAT’S BEEN INTERESTING IN THE WAKE OF ALL THAT — THIS IS TEN YEARS AGO — IS THAT SUBSEQUENT TO THAT THE FOLKS WHO KNEW ME BEST BACK HOME SAID LOOK, WE DON’T APPROVE OF THAT CHAPTER OF YOUR LIFE OR HOW YOU HANDLED IT BUT WE ARE GOING TO GIVE YOU A SECOND CHANCE WE ARE GOING TO SEND YOU TO CONGRESS WHICH I DID FOR THE FOLLOWING SIX YEARS.>>Chris: AT YOU ON THE PRESIDENT HAVE SOME HISTORY JUST IN 2018 YOU WERE RUNNING FOR REELECTION AGAINST A WOMAN — AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE ON ELECTION DAY THE PRESIDENT ENDORSED HER OVER YOU AND YOU GUYS HADN’T GOTTEN ALONG FOR SOME PERIOD OF TIME AND AFTER YOU LOST IN THE PRIMARY, HE LAUGHED ABOUT IT ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL. HERE HE IS.>>SHE BEATS A MAN THAT LIKES FLAMINGO DANCERS FROM ARGENTINA. YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT. HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE VACATIONING ON THE TALLAHASSEE TRAIL, BUT HE WAS ACTUALLY IN ARGENTINA. I DON’T KNOW, DO THEY HAVE A TALLAHASSEE TRAIL IN ARGENTINA? I DON’T THINK. NO, RIGHT?>>Chris: HOW MUCH OF THIS IS PERSONAL?>>Governor Sanford: NONE. IF YOU LOOK AT MY 25 YEARS IN POLITICS, WHICH YOU FIND IS AN ABSOLUTE FOCUS — MOST FINANCIALLY CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT IN THE UNITED STATES AMERICA ALL THE DIFFERENT AGENCIES HAVE SEEN HOW CONSISTENTLY I TALK ABOUT THIS. WE ARE NEARING A TIPPING POINT. MY’S GRANDKIDS — IT’S NOT PERSONAL BUT IT IS INDICATIVE OF THE WHERE THE PRESIDENT MAKES TOO MANY THINGS PERSONAL. THINK OF THIS, MY VOTING RECORD WAS MORE THAN 90% WITH THE PRESIDENT. 90%. I LOVE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, BUT I DON’T AGREE WITH THEM 90% AND YET WE GET ALONG JUST FINE. BUT THAT’S NOT THE WORLD OF TRUMP. THE WORLD OF TRUMP’S PERSONAL LOYALTY AND I BELIEVE AS A CONSERVATIVE OR LOYALTY IS TO BE TWO IDEALS AND IDEAS AND WE AGREED ON 90% — A HANDFUL OF THINGS AND THEREFORE IT’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH. THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH THAT.>>Chris: LESS THAN A MINUTE LEFT AND I WANT TO JUST PICK UP ON THAT BECAUSE YOU POINT OUT THAT THE G.O.P., THE PRESIDENT HAS MOVED THE G.O.P. AWAY FROM TRADITIONAL VALUES LIKE THE DEFICITS AND FREE-TRADE AND AMERICA’S ROLE IN THE WORLD. HOW — IN A MINUTE, HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY’S ALLEGIANCE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP DESPITE ALL THIS?>>Governor Sanford: AGAIN, IF THE EXACT THING THAT GOT HIM ELECTED. PEOPLE LOOK AT HILLARY CLINTON VERSUS DONALD TRUMP AND SAID OKAY, I MAY NOT LIKE SOME OF WHAT HE DOES OR SOME OF HOW HE HANDLES THINGS, BUT I WILL PICK HIM OVER HER. THEY HAVEN’T HAD A CHOICE AND THAT’S WHY I’M RUNNING. I THINK THAT AMERICANS DESERVE A CHOICE THAT HAS HAD A REAL EXECUTIVE BRANCH EXPERIENCE, WHICH I HAD OVER TWO TERMS AS GOVERNOR, REAL LEGISLATIVE EXPERIENCE, WHAT I HAD OVER 12 YEARS IN THE U.S. CONGRESS. AND I THINK IF YOU LOOK AT A LOT OF THOSE POLLS, ABOUT HALF OF THEM SAY WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE PRESIDENT — WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE A CONVERSATION WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.>>Chris: AND NOW YOU’RE GOING TO PROVIDE IT.

‘Strongman politics are ascendant suddenly’: Key moments from Obama’s Mandela lecture


And a politics of fear and resentment
and retrenchment began to appear, and that kind of politics
is now on the move. It’s on the move at a pace that
would have seemed unimaginable just a few years ago.
I am not being alarmist, I am simply stating the facts. Look around. Strongman politics are ascendant suddenly,
whereby elections and some pretence of democracy are maintained – the form
of it – but those in power seek to undermine every institution or norm
that gives democracy meaning. In the West, you’ve got far-right parties
that oftentimes are based not just on platforms of protectionism and closed borders,
but also on barely hidden racial nationalism. The free press is under attack. Censorship
and state control of media is on the rise. Social media – once seen as a mechanism
to promote knowledge and understanding and solidarity – has proved to be
just as effective promoting hatred and paranoia and propaganda
and conspiracy theories. In fact, it is in part because of the failures
of governments and powerful elites to squarely address the shortcomings and contradictions
of this international order that we now see much of the world threatening to return to
an older, a more dangerous, a more brutal way of doing business. But he believed, as I believe, that you can
be proud of your heritage without denigrating those of a different heritage. In fact,
you dishonor your heritage. It would make me think that you’re
a little insecure about your heritage if you’ve got to put somebody else’s
heritage down. Yeah, that’s right. That these people who are so intent
on putting people down and puffing themselves up that they’re small-hearted,
that there’s something they’re just afraid of. We have to actually believe
in an objective reality. This is another one of these things
that I didn’t think I had to lecture about. You have to believe in facts. Without facts,
there is no basis for cooperation. If I say this is a podium and
you say this is an elephant, it’s going to be hard
for us to cooperate. I can’t find common ground if somebody
says climate change is just not happening, when almost all of the
world’s scientists tell us it is. I don’t know where to start talking to you
about this. If you start saying it’s an elaborate hoax, I don’t know what to
– where do we start? Unfortunately, too much of politics today
seems to reject the very concept of objective truth. People just make stuff up.
They just make stuff up. We see it in the growth of state-sponsored propaganda;
we see it in internet driven fabrications, we see it in the blurring of lines between
news and entertainment, we see the utter loss of shame
among political leaders where they’re caught in a lie and they just
double down and they lie some more. Look, let me say … Politicians have always lied, but it
used to be if you caught them lying they’d be like, “Oh man.”
Now they just keep on lying. They just …

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Calls Democrats A “Sad Excuse For A Political Party”


Earlier this week, White House Press Secretary
Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared on Fox & Friends, I guess as part of the ongoing victory lap
after the William Barr memo attempted to clear president Trump, even though now we know that
members of Mueller’s team say, yeah, that’s not at all what happened? Nonetheless, Sarah Huckabee Sanders went on
Fox & Friends on Thursday, do a little bit more of a victory lap and then talk about
how pathetic and horrible Democrats really are. I don’t want to make you have to watch it,
so instead I’m just going to read you what Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. She said that Democrats are sad excuse for
a political party, a sad excuse for a political party. Now, if you ask me, I would think a sad excuse
for a political party would be a party that for the last 10 years has told us that the
Democrats suck on healthcare and they’re going to give us something better. And then when they have the chance to give
us something better, we realized they never bothered to come up with a plan. I’d say that’s pretty sad and pathetic, wouldn’t
you? If you talk about wanting to do something
for 10 years and then you get the chance to do it and you haven’t even started the planning
phases, that’s the sign of a party that doesn’t know what the hell they’re doing. But good try Sarah. Good try and it gets worse. She goes on to talk more nonsense as this
serial liar is known to do and here it is. At some point they have to realize that they
have been beat by President Trump and the 2016 election. They’re getting beat by him day in and day
out on issues that actually matter. And I think there are a sad excuse for a political
party right now and at some point they have to decide that they want to actually govern
and they actually want to change things and make America better and join the president
in those efforts. Sarah, what world do you live in? In what world is that man in the Oval Office
beating the Democrats every day? Was it was it, was it when he shut down the
government because they wouldn’t give him what he wanted and then he reopened the government
because he still didn’t get what he wanted and he realized how much he screwed up it. Or are they, what are you talking about? They’re not beating him day in and day out. They continue to refuse to go along with the
horrible plans that he has. So he had to declare a national emergency
that most people in this country think is utter nonsense. He’s still pushing for a wall that most people
in this country think is utter nonsense. He’s now threatening to impose a 25% tariff
on literally everything that Mexico sends to the United States, which would absolutely
devastate and cripple the United States economy. And he’s doing it because he’s not winning. That’s the bottom line here, Sarah. Those tariffs on China that have decimated
farming communities in the United States, that’s not winning. He did it because he’s losing, and I don’t
know if you notice this, Sarah, but we actually, uh, what was it, November, I think it was. We had some elections where Republicans got
their butts handed to them by Democrats. Not just any democrats, but those far left
Democrats that Republicans love to attack. And they are in Congress right now kicking. But coming up with plans and policies and
proposals and ideas that your Republican party continues to shoot down. The Democrats today are better than they have
been at than at any other point in my lifetime. And they’re not getting beat every day. That’s your guy. Your desperate, disgusting, despicable boss
is the one who’s been backed into a corner by Democrats and the American public. And I wouldn’t exactly call that winning.
