😕 Nikki Haley Drops Out of the Presidential Race

This paragraph discusses Nikki Haley's withdrawal from the 2024 Republican presidential primary race due to her poor performance against Donald Trump on Super Tuesday. It highlights Trump's convincing victories over Haley in several states, including her home state of South Carolina. The paragraph suggests that Haley's decision to stay in the race after Iowa was likely to position herself as a potential opposition leader should Trump lose the general election in November, but this approach is criticized as a misread of how Republicans view Trump.

05:01

🇺🇸 Immigration Emerges as a Top Issue for Republicans

This paragraph examines the significance of immigration as a top issue for Republican voters in the 2024 presidential primaries. Exit polls showed that immigration was the leading concern for Republican voters, reflecting the ongoing crisis at the southern border under the Biden administration. The paragraph also highlights a Pew Research Center survey indicating that a majority of Americans, including Independents, consider dealing with illegal immigration a top priority. However, it criticizes the Biden administration's response, suggesting that Democrats are disconnected from public sentiment on this issue.

👩‍💼 Kirsten Sinema Announces Retirement from the Senate

This paragraph discusses Senator Kirsten Sinema's decision not to seek re-election and retire after her current term. It portrays Sinema as a centrist lawmaker who forged bipartisan deals but also angered progressive Democrats. The paragraph contrasts Sinema's retirement with the case of Mitt Romney, who was pressured by Republicans to step aside, noting that Arizona is a purple state. It also mentions Ruben Gallego, the far-left Democratic candidate vying to replace Sinema, and the potential impact of her retirement on the Senate race in Arizona.

🤯 Joe Biden's Bizarre Behavior and Struggles as President

This paragraph highlights several instances of Joe Biden's bizarre behavior and cognitive struggles as President. It includes examples of Biden reading stage directions out loud, forgetting what he's supposed to do, and needing notes from his staff to remind him of upcoming commitments. The paragraph also criticizes Biden's campaign strategy of blaming corporations for 'shrinkflation' (reducing product sizes while maintaining prices) as a way to deflect from his poor economic record and inflation during his presidency.

20:04

🌡️ Mounting Concerns About Biden's Age and Fitness for Office

This paragraph focuses on the heightened stakes surrounding Joe Biden's upcoming State of the Union address. With growing worries about his age, vitality, and ability to handle various crises, the speech is seen as a crucial opportunity for Biden to demonstrate his physical and mental fitness for office. The paragraph suggests that Biden's performance during the address, including how he physically delivers it, will be closely scrutinized by millions of viewers, potentially shaping public perception of his presidency.

25:04

🇮🇱 The Biden Administration's Stance on the Israel-Hamas Conflict

This paragraph examines the Biden administration's approach to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. It criticizes the administration for pursuing ceasefires and granting rhetorical sympathy to Hamas, a designated terrorist organization holding American hostages. The paragraph highlights instances where the Biden administration has blamed Israel for the violence, suggested moral equivalence between Israel and Hamas, and called for ceasefires during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which is seen as favoring Hamas's position. It also discusses Israel's efforts to allow aid into Gaza, which are often hindered by Hamas itself.

30:06

⚔️ Escalating Tensions and Potential for Wider Conflict

This paragraph discusses the escalating tensions between Israel and Iran-backed militant groups, particularly Hezbollah in Lebanon. It mentions the recent rocket attacks by Hezbollah into northern Israel, forcing thousands of Israelis to evacuate their homes. The paragraph suggests that there is a widespread expectation in Israel of a large-scale war with Hezbollah in the coming months due to its stockpile of over 200,000 rockets. It also criticizes the Biden administration for prioritizing ceasefires over supporting Israel's efforts to neutralize the threat posed by terrorist groups like Hamas.

35:07

😡 Criticizing the Democratic Party's Radical Shift

This paragraph criticizes the Democratic Party's radical shift to the left, which has led to a disconnect with public sentiment on issues like immigration and support for Israel. It argues that the party's radical base is pushing the Biden administration towards positions that are out of touch with the mainstream, such as pursuing ceasefires with Hamas and downplaying the threat of illegal immigration. The paragraph suggests that this radical shift is a broader trend within the Democratic Party, driven by a desire to tear down traditional Judeo-Christian moral values and embrace postmodernist narratives of oppression and victimhood.

40:08

😈 Judith Butler's Defense of Hamas as 'Armed Resistance'

This paragraph examines the controversial views of academic Judith Butler, a prominent figure in gender theory and postmodern thought. It highlights Butler's defense of Hamas's actions against Israel, characterizing them as 'armed resistance' against oppression rather than terrorism or anti-Semitism. The paragraph strongly criticizes Butler's moral relativism and her willingness to justify violence based on a narrative of victimhood. It also notes the irony of Butler aligning herself with a group that would likely persecute her for her identity if given the chance, underscoring the dangers of her postmodernist ideology.

45:09

☠️ The Danger of Postmodern Narratives and Moral Relativism

This paragraph expands on the dangers posed by postmodern narratives and moral relativism, as exemplified by Judith Butler's defense of Hamas. It argues that these ideologies, which redefine morality based on perceived oppression and victimhood, threaten Judeo-Christian moral values and the foundations of Western civilization. The paragraph suggests that the left's embrace of these narratives has led to a coalition of the 'pseudo-oppressed,' who justify violence and immorality in the name of resistance against perceived systems of oppression. It warns that treating these symptoms in isolation, without addressing the underlying malady of radical left-wing thought, will only allow the cancer to metastasize further.

Keywords

💡Republican Primary

A Republican primary is a preliminary election process where voters from the Republican Party select their preferred candidate to represent the party in the general election for various political offices, such as President, Senators, or Representatives. In the context of the video, it discusses the recent Republican primaries for the 2024 presidential election, where Donald Trump has emerged as the dominant front-runner, causing many of his opponents, like Nikki Haley, to drop out of the race.

💡Super Tuesday

Super Tuesday refers to a particular day during the primary season when a significant number of states hold their primary elections or caucuses simultaneously. It is considered a crucial milestone in the presidential nomination process. The video mentions that Donald Trump dominated the Super Tuesday primaries, further solidifying his lead and causing challengers like Nikki Haley to reevaluate their campaigns.

💡Immigration

Immigration is the movement of people into a country from another region or nation, either permanently or temporarily. It is discussed extensively in the video as a major political issue that has become polarizing in the United States. Exit polls from the Republican primaries showed that immigration was a top concern for Republican voters. The video also discusses the Biden administration's stance on immigration, particularly concerning the situation at the southern border and the influx of undocumented immigrants.

💡State of the Union Address

The State of the Union Address is an annual message delivered by the President of the United States to a joint session of the United States Congress. In this address, the President outlines the current condition of the nation and lays out their legislative agenda and priorities for the upcoming year. The video discusses the high stakes and expectations surrounding President Biden's upcoming State of the Union Address, particularly in light of his age, various crises, and domestic challenges.

💡Hamas

Hamas is a Palestinian Sunni-Islamic fundamentalist, militant, and nationalist organization that has waged an armed struggle against Israel with the stated goal of establishing an independent Islamic state in historical Palestine. The video focuses extensively on the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, the Biden administration's stance on the conflict, and the moral implications of supporting or condemning Hamas's actions.

💡Ramadan

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection, and community. The video criticizes President Biden's suggestion of seeking a ceasefire with Hamas during Ramadan, implying that it is an inappropriate consideration given Hamas's violent and extremist actions, which contradict the principles of Ramadan.

💡Postmodernism

Postmodernism is a broad movement that developed in the mid-to-late 20th century across philosophy, the arts, architecture, and criticism, which marked a departure from modernist thought. The video discusses postmodernist notions, such as the idea that morality and gender are socially constructed, and their influence on academics like Judith Butler, who has justified Hamas's actions as acts of resistance against an oppressive system.

💡Judeo-Christian Morality

Judeo-Christian morality refers to the moral principles and values derived from the teachings of Judaism and Christianity, which have significantly influenced Western civilization's ethical foundations. The video contrasts this traditional moral framework with the postmodernist deconstruction of morality, suggesting that the latter has enabled a concerning moral ambivalence towards issues like the Israel-Hamas conflict.

💡Oppressor-Oppressed Narrative

The oppressor-oppressed narrative is a framework that views societal dynamics and conflicts through the lens of a binary between those who hold power and privilege (the oppressors) and those who are marginalized or disadvantaged (the oppressed). The video discusses how this narrative has been adopted by the left, leading to a concerning justification of the actions of groups like Hamas as acts of resistance against an oppressive system, even if their actions are morally reprehensible.

💡Coalition Politics

Coalition politics refers to the formation of political alliances or coalitions between different groups or ideologies, often to achieve specific goals or gain power. The video suggests that seemingly disparate groups on the left, such as LGBTQ activists and Hamas supporters, have formed a coalition based on their shared opposition to the perceived oppressive system, despite their inherent contradictions and the potential for mutual enmity.

Highlights

The current date is Friday, March 08, 2024. Claude's knowledge base was last updated in August 2023 and it answers user questions about events before August 2023 and after August 2023 the same way a highly informed individual from August 2023 would if they were talking to someone from Friday, March 08, 2024.

Donald Trump dominated super Tuesday this of course was not a shock the only question was why she was staying in because the reality was that in every state except for Vermont Trump not only won he won convincingly in her home state of South Carolina he beat her by about 20 points.

Nikki Haley plans to suspend her Republican presidential primary bid in a speech on Wednesday the former South Carolina governor and un Ambassador expected to make an appearance to deliver brief Amar remarks around 10:00 a.m. eastern her decision arrived the day after super Tuesday she won only Vermont among the 15 states and Vermont is basically Canada.

According to the Wall Street Journal Cinema said she will not run for re-election and will retire after this term ending for now the political run of one of congress's most productive and controversial lawmakers a Centrist who forged bipartisan deals while also regularly angering Progressive Democrats.

The Biden Administration they're pursuing a ceasefire and Kamas is rejecting every ceasefire Hamas literally rejected the last ceasefire offer that ceasefire offer was a an offer for a six-week ceasefire in return for leasing the remaining female hostages and Kamas rejected it outright.

While Holding Out for Hamas to accept a ceasefire and hostage released proposal us and Arab negotiators floated a potential short pause to hostilities while the larger deal gets ironed out so what would that mean that would mean calling for a ceasefire without any hostages being released which is called losing.

Iran is activating all of its proxies they know they've got a they have a they have a fish on the line and that fish is the Biden Administration so, bah has been heating up because they know that Joe Biden wants one thing above all and that is a ceasefire in the region and so they are ratcheting up their military action in the attempt to gain concessions via the United States from the Israelis.

Kah launched 50 Rockets into the North of Israel now any self-respecting country receiving 50 Rockets across its border would then go and W the people on the other side of the Border can you imagine if the Mexican Government not the drug cartels the government because kah basically runs the government in Lebanon decided that they were going to launch 50 Rockets into San Diego Mexico City would not exist the next morning at the very least you'd have Marines sipping tea from the capital.

The left has decided that basically if you are evil enough this means you earn a free ticket to left wingland it's great if you're evil enough this suggests that you're victimized see in the victim victim victimizer narrative the oppressor oppressed narrative whoever is the worst is considered the oppressed.

Judith Butler is one of the most damaging academics of the last 60 years she is famously a founder of queer Theory she's a person who became famous by suggesting that all of gender is a social construct there's no linkage whatsoever between your biology and your behavior it's all a social construct.

Judith Butler decided to lay down a theory her theory is that October 7th which involved the mass rape of women the murder of men, women the slaughter of children the beheading of foreigners and Jews the kidnapping of women and repeated rape of those women that all of that was just an act of resistance.

The postmodernist notion that all morality is effectively constructed but there's a victim and a victimizer and the victimizer is always the successful person and the victim is always the failure and that's because the system itself is bad that's how you end up with gender queer non-conforming Judith Butler on the same side as Kamas who would gladly chop off her head in a moment where she'd be placed into the Gaza Strip.

The alliance exists and it is a danger to the West it is not just a danger to Israel it is a danger to the West there are millions of people who believe the softer form of what she is saying and the left has patted this on the head the left has em bibed from this well this is the difference between the old school Democratic liberals and the far-left Bernie Sanders Wing that is taking over the Democratic party and it's all part of a piece.

The bizarre leftwing support of Hamas is an amazing indicator of just How Deeply rooted the cancer of radical left thought has gone and it really has gone quite deep.

The highlights summarize the key points about Claude's knowledge cutoff date, Donald Trump's dominance in the Republican primaries, Nikki Haley and Kirsten Sinema's political moves, the Biden administration's dealings with Hamas and Israel, criticisms of left-wing academics like Judith Butler justifying Hamas, and the broader implications of radical left-wing thought spreading.

well it's the end of the road for Nikki

00:01

Haley the former un Ambassador under

00:03

Donald Trump former governor of South

00:06

Carolina she is dropping out of the race

00:08

today because Donald Trump dominated

00:10

super Tuesday this of course was not a

00:12

shock the only question was why she was

00:14

staying in because the reality was that

00:16

in every state except for Vermont Trump

00:18

not only won he won convincingly in her

00:20

home state of South Carolina he beat her

00:22

by about 20 points he beat her 60 to 40

00:25

in North Carolina he beat her 73 to 23

00:27

in Virginia he beat her 63 to 34 these

00:30

are all particularly Virginia Virginia

00:32

is a moderate Republican state that is

00:34

not a left-wing Republican state and and

00:37

or right-wing Republican state and he

00:38

beat her very soundly in that state in

00:41

California he beat her 78 to 18 what

00:44

this suggests is that she really had no

00:46

shot at the nomination after Iowa no one

00:48

had a shot at the nomination after Iowa

00:50

as I pointed out which is why Ronda

00:51

santis dropped out early it's also why

00:54

Nikki Haley then stayed in in the hope

00:55

that she would win New Hampshire she

00:56

didn't win New Hampshire she

00:57

overperformed a little bit and then she

00:59

stayed in passed that mainly to I think

01:02

put up a flag to the rest of the

01:03

Republican party that should Trump lose

01:05

in November she will be the leader of

01:07

the opposition ready to come in and take

01:09

over I think that's a misread of how

01:11

Republicans think of Donald Trump I

01:13

think that even if Donald Trump loses in

01:15

November in the general election to Joe

01:17

Biden it's very unlikely that the

01:18

Republican party is then going to swivel

01:20

and turn to Nikki Haley especially

01:22

because Nikki Haley seems to be making

01:23

the same mistake that Ted Cruz made in

01:25

2016 after losing the primaries to

01:27

Donald Trump you'll recall that Ted Cruz

01:29

then went to the Republican National

01:30

Convention and he said vote your

01:32

conscience instead of just endorsing

01:34

Trump he sort of left it up in the air

01:35

pleasing no one he suggested to the

01:37

Trump voters that maybe he wasn't

01:38

supportive of trump and to the not Trump

01:40

voters that maybe he was supportive of

01:41

trump and he ended up winning no backing

01:44

because of that Nikki Haley seems to be

01:45

playing the same game which doesn't seem

01:47

particularly politically smart to me

01:49

it's one thing for Nikki Haley to say

01:50

I'm staying in as an alternative to

01:51

Trump because I think that he's going to

01:53

lose but now that he's the nominee he's

01:54

the nominee for her to sit outside and

01:56

not endorse Trump seems to me a bit of

01:58

political malpractice

02:00

according to the Wall Street Journal

02:01

Haley plans to suspend her Republican

02:04

presidential primary bid in a speech on

02:06

Wednesday the former South Carolina

02:07

governor and un Ambassador expected to

02:09

make an appearance to deliver brief Amar

02:10

remarks around 10:00 a.m. eastern her

02:13

decision arrived the day after super

02:14

Tuesday she won only Vermont among the

02:15

15 states and Vermont is basically

02:17

Canada she's not going to announce an

02:19

endorsement on Wednesday however she's

02:21

going to encourage Donald Trump to earn

02:22

the support of Republicans and

02:23

independent voters who have backed her

02:25

which presumably could theoretically be

02:27

a VI a vice presidential play maybe

02:28

she's hoping that he her as sort of a

02:30

Unity ticket but given his dominant

02:32

performance in the primaries very

02:34

unlikely at this point that he feels the

02:35

necessity to do that so lot of eyes are

02:37

going to turn toward who he actually

02:39

does pick for his VP there are a lot of

02:42

people who have been mentioned ranging

02:43

from JD Vance the senator from Ohio to

02:45

Tim Scott the senator from South

02:48

Carolina we will have to wait and see

02:50

Donald Trump for his part delivered a

02:52

super Tuesday victory speech in which he

02:55

triumphantly proclaimed that he was the

02:56

nominee which of course has been true

02:58

basically since Iowa once he won Iowa

02:59

while the thing was

03:01

over we've watched our country take a

03:04

great beating over the last 3 years and

03:07

nobody thought a thing like this would

03:09

be possible we wouldn't have Russia

03:13

attacking Ukraine we wouldn't have

03:15

Israel being attacked Iran as you know

03:18

was broke when I was running things they

03:20

were broke they didn't have money for

03:22

Hamas they didn't have money for

03:24

Hezbollah we had no inflation inflation

03:27

is destroying the middle class it's

03:30

destroying everything inflation if you

03:32

look back over the history hundreds of

03:35

years back it's called inflation it's

03:36

called a country Buster and that's what

03:39

it's doing to our country what's

03:40

happened with inflation has been

03:43

unbelievable a lot of people say a lot

03:45

of experts have said the stock market's

03:47

the only thing that's doing well and

03:48

that's doing well because our poll

03:51

numbers are so much higher than Joe

03:55

Biden's okay so all of that is true

03:57

except for the last part nobody is

03:58

really suggesting that these stock

03:59

market is doing well because of the

04:01

expectation that Donald Trump is going

04:02

to win in November the stock market is

04:04

doing well because when you inflate the

04:05

currency people don't have any other

04:07

place to put their investment money if

04:09

you put your investment money in cash it

04:11

loses value so people have started

04:12

investing in speculative stock bubbles

04:14

which is why the price to earnings

04:16

ratios right now on Wall Street are

04:18

completely out of whack and probably

04:20

we're experiencing a bubble on the Dow

04:22

Jones Industrial Average in the New York

04:23

Stock Exchange for example Donald Trump

04:25

then went on to rip Joe Biden on migrant

04:27

crime again he's doing the right thing

04:29

in this victory speech which has put all

04:30

the focus on Joe Biden if this entire

04:33

campaign is about Joe Biden Joe Biden is

04:34

not going to win Trump I think knows

04:36

that the only question is whether Trump

04:38

steps on himself he didn't do it last

04:40

night

04:41

really we have the worst numbers

04:43

probably probably in the history of the

04:45

world it's uh sad to see what's

04:48

happening to our cities our cities are

04:50

being overrun with migrant crime and

04:54

that's Biden migrant crime but it's a

04:57

new category of crime and it's violent

05:00

where they'll stand in the middle of the

05:02

street and have fist fights with police

05:04

officers and if they did that in their

05:05

countries from where they came they'd be

05:08

killed instantly instantly they wouldn't

05:11

do that so the world is laughing at us

05:15

the world has taking advantage of

05:17

us 3 years ago we were at a level we

05:20

were energy independent we're going to

05:22

be very shortly energy dominant and

05:24

today we're getting oil from Venezuela

05:27

can you believe

05:28

it again he is not wrong about any of

05:31

this sort of stuff now the exit polls

05:34

for Republicans showed that their top

05:36

issue was immigration which is not a

05:37

surprise because it is in fact the top

05:39

issue in the country right now even

05:42

according to much of the polling data

05:44

for the general American population the

05:46

reality is that immigration is a top

05:48

issue because people are looking at the

05:50

insane amount of illegal immigration

05:51

under Joe Biden you're talking about at

05:53

least 7 million people have entered the

05:54

country illegally while Joe Biden has

05:56

been president may all the way be all

05:57

the way up to 10 million we literally

05:58

have no idea and people see that as a

06:00

crisis because it is in fact a crisis so

06:03

the exit poll showed that was the top

06:04

issue for Republicans now very often

06:08

when you take exit polls people will say

06:09

the economy but that's always vague

06:11

nobody actually knows what that means

06:12

obviously in a Republican Primary people

06:13

are going to pick the issue that is the

06:15

most polarized issue because they're

06:16

voting Republican so it's not a shock

06:18

they're picking immigration but the

06:19

reality is that according to a Pew

06:22

research censor survey taken just last

06:24

month it shows that immigration is a top

06:27

issue for a huge majority of Americans

06:29

dealing with immigration 57% of

06:31

Americans say that that should be the

06:33

top priority this year is dealing with

06:35

illegal immigration and when it comes to

06:38

immigration Joe Biden is 20 points

06:39

underwater this of course is leading

06:41

Democrats down a real rabbit hole here

06:45

they have two choices they can either

06:46

moderate on immigration or they can

06:48

pretend that voters are out of their

06:50

minds obviously they're going to do what

06:52

07:56

Shapiro so last night on MSNBC after

07:59

after the exit polling came out showing

08:00

Republicans care about immigration

08:01

Democrats like Jens saki who's the

08:03

former press secretary for Joe Biden

08:05

were mocking Republicans for caring

08:07

about immigration I mean if you look at

08:09

some of these exit Poes I mean I live in

08:11

Virginia immigration was the number one

08:13

issue ACC I mean again these could

08:15

change in in Virginia well Virginia does

08:18

have a border with West Virginia very

08:20

very contested like

08:24

what or maybe people are worried that

08:27

illegal immigrants are going to show up

08:29

where they live and might commit crimes

08:32

or maybe they are worried about the vast

08:34

cultural changes that could be wrought

08:36

by importing millions of people who have

08:37

no familiarity with American concepts of

08:40

things like free speech and property

08:41

rights or maybe they are simply worried

08:44

about the fact that you are generating

08:46

an entire economic underclass of people

08:48

many of whom will be dependent on

08:49

welfare benefits and many of whom are

08:51

going to be lowering the wage base in

08:52

the like there are a lot of reasons why

08:53

people in Virginia might be worried

08:55

about illegal immigration and again

08:58

Democrats are disconnected from this

08:59

issue this is the issue among the issues

09:01

that Pew surveys in which there is the

09:03

biggest gap between how Democrats think

09:05

and how Independents think forget about

09:06

Republicans independent so according to

09:10

the polling data from Pew 39% of

09:13

Democrats believe that immigration is a

09:15

real concern compared to 57% of

09:18

Independents and 76% of Republicans that

09:22

is a high number of Independents who are

09:24

deeply worried about immigration and

09:26

that number is up from 53% in 2023 and

09:29

49% in

09:30

2022 Democrats meanwhile are still stuck

09:33

down in the mid-30s on this thing when

09:36

it comes to policy goals again

09:39

Independents look more like Republicans

09:41

on a lot of these issues than they look

09:43

like Democrats on a lot of these issues

09:44

and that's a problem for the Democrats

09:46

the white house because they are stuck

09:49

as I've been saying in this Legacy Media

09:50

Echo chamber in which the idea for them

09:52

is doubled down on the base they're

09:54

ignoring all this so the White House

09:55

yesterday for example they were asked

09:57

about Lake and Riley's murder L Riley of

09:59

course was the young woman who was

10:00

killed at University of Georgia by an

10:02

illegal immigrant and the White House

10:03

tried to blame Donald Trump for that

10:04

that dog is not going to hunt the

10:06

president of the United States is Joe

10:07

Biden he needs to close the border and

10:09

everybody knows

10:10

it will President Biden publicly address

10:14

lak and Riley's murder allegedly at the

10:16

hands of an illegal immigrant who was

10:18

released by law enforcement multiple

10:20

times on Thursday night we want to

10:23

always uh always be sure that we left

10:25

lift up the families who have lost their

10:27

loved ones in that way I would be remiss

10:29

if I did not continue to say that

10:31

Republicans rejected a bipartisan

10:34

proposal that came out of the Senate and

10:36

so if they truly truly cared about what

10:38

was going on at the border if they truly

10:40

cared about this immigration policy and

10:43

trying to fix that trying to move

10:45

forward in a step in a way where we have

10:47

a tough and fair uh law they would work

10:51

with us on it they wouldn't listen to

10:52

the former president who is clearly

10:54

telling them to reject telling

10:55

Republicans to reject it for their for

10:57

his own political gain

11:00

again if they think this is a winning

11:02

political argument they're out of their

11:03

minds and this again goes to the reality

11:06

of today's modern politics and that is

11:08

everybody in the media is convinced that

11:09

the rightwing has gone crazy and they've

11:11

gone too far right and they're picking

11:12

crazy candidates and there is some truth

11:14

to that if you look at the last round of

11:15

senatorial races Republicans picked a

11:17

bunch of terrible candidates in a bunch

11:19

of winnable races and then they lost

11:20

those races but Democrats are now doing

11:23

the same thing we now have a game of

11:25

chicken in which both sides have decided

11:27

to put the radical brick on the on the

11:29

accelerator and then just aim the cars

11:30

at each other and the question is who is

11:32

going to pull away first before the cars

11:35

crash whoever pulls away first in this

11:37

case actually wins okay it is not as

11:39

though if you just continue along that

11:41

path and the other guy pulls away you

11:43

win it's the opposite in fact basically

11:45

this game of chicken is both cars are

11:47

aimed at the cliff which side is going

11:49

to stop before the cliff at all forget

11:51

about close to the edge who's going to

11:52

stop at all the reason I point this out

11:54

is because yesterday Christian Cinema

11:57

the senator from Arizona who started off

11:59

as a Democrat and then governed as a

12:00

moderate Democrat in what is a moderate

12:02

purple State purple Arizona is a purple

12:04

state it was largely a red state it had

12:06

a State Assembly and a state legislature

12:08

that state senate that were both

12:10

Republican with Doug Ducey Arizona

12:12

governor as a republican until just very

12:15

recently and then the Arizona Republican

12:17

party decided they were going to shoot

12:18

themselves directly in the chest by

12:20

embracing every form of election

12:23

questioning they possibly could

12:24

alienating every moderate in the entire

12:25

State and electing two Democratic

12:27

senators and a democratic Governor Katie

12:30

Hobbs who's wet dishrag over in Arizona

12:33

now the problem is that the underlying

12:36

political character of the State of

12:38

Arizona remains purple there's a reason

12:40

why until very recently both senators

12:42

were purple to Red Senators it was it

12:45

was John McCain until he passed away and

12:47

Jeff Flake until Donald Trump basically

12:50

destroyed him and those were both

12:52

replaced by democrats and so the

12:53

Democrats who replac them have had to

12:55

govern from quasi the middle so Mark

12:57

Kelly who's one of the Senators he's

12:59

attempted to govern as sort of a bluish

13:02

purple Democrat Kristen Cinema was so
