Mollie Hemingway: "Obviously, Democrats Are Focusing On Abortion Because They Don't Have Anything Else To Run On"

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 17:58
"The Federalist" senior editor Mollie Hemingway dismissed abortion as a winning issue for Democrats ahead of the midterm election on FNC's "FOX News Sunday" panel: JUAN WILLIAMS: When you come to the doctors, the court left the doctors with ethical and legal issues with viable pregnancy a woman says is no longer viable, what is the doctor to do? SHANNON BREAM: States are trying to figure that out now, Mollie. MOLLIE HEMINGWAY: This is a very important issue. Obviously, Democrats are focusing on abortion because they don't have anything else to run on. The general mood of the country is that people are very frustrated with the direction of the country. The economy is bad, the border is bad, foreign policy not going well, so they don't have anything else. But I think it is important for Republicans to push back on misinformation and disinformation getting spread in the media. The Dobbs decision allows Americans to have a say and they didn't under Roe v. Wade. In fact, a majority of Americans think abortion should either be illegal or illegal in some circumstances. Three out of four believe there should be restrictions on abortion, 63% believe abortion should be illegal after 15 weeks or pregnancy, which is around the time an unborn child feels pain. I think Republicans are shying away from the issue when they should be hitting hard in understanding that the moderate viewpoint is something enabled by the Dobbs decision.

Herschel Walker: Black And Brown People Want Public Safety And School Choice

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 17:24
Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker unpacks key issues ahead of the midterm election with FNC's Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures." HERSCHEL WALKER (R), GEORGIA SENATORIAL CANDIDATE: Hey, thank you for having me on, Maria. ... When you start talking about racism, when has this ever happened before? You have people want to continue to put kids down. My opponent, Raphael Warnock, want to bring wokeness into our schools, tell white kids in school, you know what, you're -- you got to apologize for your whiteness. Tell black kids you have been taken advantage of. Well, that's not right. That's not right. We need leaders in Washington that are going to do the right things for our kids, they're going to do the right thing for our men and women in blue, that are not going to tell our men in service that you can't serve God and the military at the same time. That's who the guy I'm running against have done. If you continue to vote for someone like that in Washington, you're going to get the same higher taxes, you're going to get open borders, you're going to get men in women's sports. You're going to get the same old things we have been getting. And, right now, it's not working. Even though the people are saying they're heading in the wrong direction, they're doubling down. They don't care. They don't care. They don't care about the people that elected them to office. And that's the reason I have been telling people, go to TeamHerschel.com. It is time for us to take the people's seat of Georgia back and give it to myself, so I can represent the people, because the people are saying they want new leadership. They don't want someone that's going to continue to go to Washington, and his salary is going to double, that he's going to -- his income is going to double, because that seems what he has done yet. He hasn't worried about the people. What he's worrying about is trying to get a vote. He's making a lot of money there in Washington, rather than worrying about the people.

McCarthy: 21 Years After 9/11, People On The Terror Watch List Are Freely Walking Across The Southern Border

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 17:18
House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy told FNC's "Sunday Morning Futures" what Republicans pan to do if they retake the majority in Congress: REP. KEVIN MCCARTHY (R-CA): What we have watched from the Democratic policies, their wasteful spending, I mean, their wasteful spending has brought inflation, the cost -- rising cost of everything you want to buy, from not only your gas, but in the grocery stores. Every American should ask themselves, could they afford to give up one month's salary? Most people would say no. But do you realize that's been taken from you because of how high inflation is, based upon the Democratic spending? And they were the only ones to pass this American Rescue Plan. But they were even warned by Larry Summers, by Steve Rattner, who calls it the original sin of inflation. So, we will come out with the Commitment to America that, if you would trust us with the majority, what would we do? Well, first of all, we would build an economy that is strong. We would stop inflation, make America energy-independent, and lower your gas price. We would build a nation that is safe. We have watched the Democratic policies make it the deadliest of America in the last 20 years. We wouldn't defund the police. We would fund the police. We would not allow these prosecutors that do not uphold the law. We would also create a country that is free, based upon freedoms. We'd look at big tech and others. Then we would fundamentally have a government that is accountable. And we should have oversight of what's going on. We have watched this president have weak foreign policy. We have watched what he said when the -- when the speaker was going to go to Taiwan. He allowed China to speak to us in a manner they have never spoken to us before. We have watched them continue to grow. So we will build an economy that changes the supply chain from China and bring it back to America. These are just a few of the ideas that we will roll out in the Commitment to America, so everybody can make a decision. Do you want to keep down the pace of inflation, of rising crime, of a border that's not secure? I mean, you have covered the border most -- better than most anyone, Maria. You know what's happening on that border. You know people on the terrorist watch list. Here we are, 21 years away after 9/11. They're coming across this border from Yemen and others. Why are they coming to America, and what do they have planned? We have watched fentanyl now become the number one killer of Americans between the ages of 18 and 45. That's directly coming, the chemicals from China, and funding the cartels inside Mexico. But do you realize 300 people a day are dying from fentanyl? That's a plane crashing each and every day. But this administration doesn't believe it's a crisis. We will secure that border.

Texas GOP Rep. Mayra Flores: "Vice President Harris Has Done Nothing To Secure The Border"

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 17:11
Newly elected Rep. Mayra Flores, R-Texas, told FNC's "Sunday Morning Futures" that border security "should not be political" and blamed Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris for not doing anything to shut off the flow of contraband and immigrants through the border: REP. MAYRA FLORES (R-TX): It's heartbreaking. Today, we remember the thousands of lives that were lost, and our first responders, on 9/11. And this is not a humanitarian crisis. This is a national security crisis. And, today, we must remember that there is people still out there wanting to hurt Americans. And that is why border security is so important. This should not be political. It is time that we come together to secure the borders to keep the American people safe and also to keep immigrants safe. These immigrants are coming into this country and going through so much abuse. Children are being raped at the Southern border, and nothing is being done. Vice President Kamala Harris has done nothing for us in South Texas to secure the borders. She's useless. And, at this point, I rather her not come to South Texas, just because she's going to be in the way of our Border Patrol agents processing the women and children that have been raped. I'd rather her stay away, because unless she's going to come here to South Texas for real solutions, I don't want her here. I'm honestly very frustrated. I'm frustrated with the president, with the vice president, that we have asked them, we have begged them to come to South Texas to come and see what they have done to us, what they have done to this country. And they have never cared to come here. At this point, I would rather them not come here anymore. We're very frustrated and, to be honest with you, fed up here in South Texas.

Chuck Todd Suggests Democrats Will Do Well In November: "This Election Feels A Lot More Like 1998"

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 16:54
NBC's "Meet The Press" host Chuck Todd said during the weekly political panel that Democrats might pick up seats in Congress in this year's midterm election, a rare feat for the party that controls the White House. Todd suggested that 2022 could play out like the 1998 midterms, where the Democrats led by Bill Clinton became the first party in power to do so since the 1930s: CHUCK TODD: Arizona is fascinating when you have -- I do think it's also a libertarian state. There are so many odd cross-currents that I think we're going to learn a lot. FORMER DEMOCRATIC SEN. CLAIRE MCCASKILL: Well, you know, maybe not. Maybe we'll learn that candidates matter, which is not a new concept. Maybe we'll learn that extremes are not healthy for general elections. And I don't think that's a new thing. I think more importantly what we're going to see, and this is what I really do believe, is that will we defy history by having the kind of turnout with the party who holds power and holds the presidency, will we have the kind of turnout that we never have in midterms? That's what everybody should be looking at, I think. The only saying about midterms, it's all about who shows up. And that's what the struggle with midterms is getting people to the polls. I think we have more motivation on the Democratic side this year than anybody anticipated we would have. CHUCK TODD: It feels a lot more like a '98, like, odd scenario that we had there.

Hillary Clinton: "It's Sad That We Have So Many People Who Seem To Resent Or Oppose Women In The Public Arena"

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 16:26
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commented on the issues women face in politics during an interview Sunday morning with CNN's Dana Bash. "Unfortunately, social media, with all of its misogyny, has made it more difficult" for women in politics, she said. "But we can't be bullied into silence or giving up on our own dreams."

Hillary Clinton: Don't Want To "Jump To Conclusions" About Trump's Classified Documents Case

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 16:26
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declined to take a victory lap and said she understands the danger of jumping to conclusions when asked to comment on the FBI's search of former President Trump's Florida home during an interview Sunday morning with CNN's Dana Bash: BASH: While I have you, I want to ask about the FBI search at Mar-a-Lago. You said this week that you don't want to prejudge because you have been prejudged in your life. I know your infamous e-mails were investigated. You were cleared. But you've dealt with classified information as the former secretary of State, as a senator. If the Justice Department decides that former President Donald Trump actually committed a crime, do you think he should be treated like any other citizen, or should the DOJ take into account the potential real-world consequences of indicting a former president and potential 2024 candidate? CLINTON: I think it's a really hard call. And I cannot predict what the Justice Department will at the end of its investigation. But I do think the rule of law, holding people accountable is central to our nation, and both as secretary of State and as a private citizen, I have answered every question, I've ever been asked. I've testified for 11 hours. I've, you know, been involved in anything that was asked of me to try to answer any kind of issues. I think that's the way the system is supposed to work, even if you are, you know, not sure why you're being with the spotlight on you and, therefore I really believed that at the end of the day no one is above the law and no one should be escaping accountability if indeed the facts and the evidence point to them having done something that anyone else in our country would be investigated for and maybe even charged. BASH: So it sounds like you're saying that he should be treated like he were -- he would if he was Donald J. Trump, somebody who was a civilian, an average citizen, not a former president or potential candidate? CLINTON: I do, because I mean, he's not the president and we do have some special exceptions for someone actually in the office so I do think that just like any American, if there is evidence that evidence should be pursued. But I know it's not an easy call. And so I don't want to inject, you know, my opinion into that difficult calculation because I don't know all the facts. And unlike people who jump to conclusions, I don't want to do that. But if the evidence proves or seems to show that there are charges that should be leveled, then I think the rule of law should apply to anyone.

Sen. Mark Warner: 20 Years After 9/11, Democracy Is Threatened By "Literally Insurgents Attacking The Capitol"

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 16:14
Senate Intelligence Chairman Mark Warner told CBS's "Face The Nation" that the threat from "literally insurgents" on January 6, 2021 is the new 9/11-level threat for the U.S. government: SEN. WARNER: Well, Margaret, I remember, as most Americans do, where they were on 9/11. I was in the middle of a political campaign and suddenly, the differences with my opponent seem very small in comparison and our country came together. And in many ways, we defeated the terrorists because of the resilience of the American public because of our intelligence community, and we are safer, better prepared. The stunning thing to me is here we are 20 years later, and the attack on the symbol of our democracy was not coming from terrorists, but it came from literally insurgents attacking the Capitol on January 6th. So I believe we are stronger. I believe our intelligence community has performed remarkably. I think the threat of terror has diminished. I think we still have new challenges in terms of nation-state challenges, Russia in longer-term, a technology competition with China. But I do worry about some of the activity in this country where the election deniers, the insurgency that took place on January 6th, that is something I hope we could see that same kind of unity of spirit. ... MARGARET BRENNAN: As you're pointing out, America came together after 9/11, and we are incredibly divided right now. One thing that is potentially quite explosive is this ongoing investigation of the justice- by the Justice Department of the former president and his handling of classified information. You've asked for a briefing from the intelligence community. Given how sensitive this is, why should anything be shared with Congress, given that this is an ongoing investigation? SEN. WARNER: Because as the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, and I'm very proud of our committee, or the last functioning, bipartisan committee. I believe in- in the whole Congress. The Vice Chairman and I have asked for a briefing of the damages that could have arisen from mishandling of this information, and I believe it's our congressional duty to have that oversight. Remember, what's at stake here is the fact that if some of these documents involve human intelligence, and that information got out, people's- will die-- MARGARET BRENNAN: We don't know that yet. SEN. WARNER: If there were penetration of signals intelligence, literally years of work could be destroyed. We talk about the enormous advances our intelligence community has made helping our Ukrainian friends, that comes about because we share intelligence. If there's intelligence that has been shared with us by allies, and that is mishandled, all of that could be in jeopardy. Now, we don't know what's in those documents. But I think it is incumbent, as soon as we get approval, let me be clear, soon as we get approval, my understanding is there is some question because of the Special Master appointment by the judge in- in Florida, whether they can brief at this point, we need clarification on that from that judge as quickly as possible, because it is essential that the intelligence committee leadership at least gets a briefing of the damage assessment.

Full Replay: VP Kamala Harris Rare Extended Interview With "Meet The Press"

Vice President Kamala Harris sits down for an exclusive interview with Chuck Todd and says the U.S. leaders "historically" were able to hold their heads high on democracy.

VP Kamala Harris Hasn't Thought "At All" About What She Would Do If There Is An Election Certification Crisis In January 2025

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 15:44
Vice President Harris told NBC's Chuck Todd on "Meet The Press" that she has not thought "at all" about what she will do in January 2025 when she is asked to fulfil the role former VP Mike Pence did during the contested January 6, 2021 election certification. CHUCK TODD: But let's – let me try to go to 60,000 feet. What do you say to the argument that it would be too divisive for the country to prosecute a former president? VICE PRES. KAMALA HARRIS: I think that our country is a country that has gone through different periods of time where the unthinkable has happened, and where there has been a call for justice, and justice has been served. And I think that's potentially going to always be the case in our country that people are going to demand justice and they rightly do. CHUCK TODD: Have you thought about – have you thought through the scenarios that you might face on January 6, 2025? VICE PRES. KAMALA HARRIS: Not at all. No. I mean, well, listen, what have I thought about? I have thought about the fact that, right now, we have an election in less than two months. And if we're going to look at timelines, that's one of the most immediate timelines that I'm looking at.

Tucker Carlson: Reality, Not "Disinformation," Is Behind Latino Support For Republicans, Donald Trump

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 15:43
TUCKER CARLSON: Way back in the summer of 2016, a phenomenon appeared in several political polls that nobody in the American media could explain. Donald Trump seemed to be performing exceptionally well among Hispanic voters in Florida. It was bizarre, so bizarre that everyone knew it could not be happening. It was scientifically impossible. If there's one thing that every reporter in America understood, it was that Donald Trump hated Hispanics like the devil hates holy water. Some believed Trump was planning a national ban on picante sauce. That's how deep and implacable his hatred was and yet, according to what journalists refer to as "the data", actual Hispanics seem to like Donald Trump. Cognitive dissonance is the term that describes what happened next. How could the numbers show something that couldn't be happening? So, the Miami Herald looked into it and their conclusion was fairly straightforward: Hispanic voters in Florida were mentally ill and also evil. As one Miami Herald columnist put it, "Donald Trump's Cuban-American followers suffer from "Cuban Supremacy Syndrome." It's an old national ailment of the soul." So, that was the diagnosis, something called Cuban Supremacy Syndrome, a serious but previously unknown medical condition like ADHD or long COVID. Someone better call a doctor. This could be fatall. But before the medical establishment could intervene to save Hispanic voters from themselves, this ailment spread like the virus it was, first from Florida, then to Texas and then across the country. By 2020, it was endemic. In the presidential election that year, Donald Trump, the guy who wanted to build a wall, became the first Republican in history to win Zapata County, Texas. Zapata County, Texas is approximately 94% Hispanic (94%) and he won. For the Democratic Party, this was an emergency made worse by the fact that there were no Cubans in Zapata County, Texas. It's pretty much all Mexican-American, so Cuban Supremacy Syndrome could not be the cause of it. And that's what a man called Eduardo Gamarra came to the rescue. Now, Gamarra is a blue-eyed college professor from Florida who has somehow convinced news organizations that he is the world's authority on what recently arrived poor people from Central America really think and he had a new diagnosis. Gamarra, NBC News reported, found a "casual link between misinformation and disinformation and how Spanish speakers have voted in recent elections." Of course, it was obvious Putin did it, just like Putin caused inflation and monkeypox and that war in Europe. According to Professor Gamarra, Hispanic voters were just too stupid to realize what was going on. They had no idea they were being fooled. They're just too dumb to Democrats. This explanation made perfect sense, of course, and they bought it. A survey last month from WPA intelligence found that more than half of CNN and MSNBC viewers now believe that "disinformation is compelling Hispanic voters to vote Republican." ... Democratic strategists are sounding the alarm that Latinos spend so much time staring glassy-eyed at their phones that they now have questions about the fairness of the last election. How to fix this? Obviously, we're going to need a lot more censorship to keep this disinformation away from all those gullible Latinos. Someone get Mark Zuckerberg on the phone immediately. It's hilarious. The bad news about the Democratic Party, obviously, is that it has become authoritarian. The good news is it remains ridiculous. These are people who believe their own improbable propaganda. It sets up the real explanation. So, what is the answer? Why exactly are Hispanic voters moving to the right? They definitely are. The latest Fox News polling shows that 72% of Hispanic voters are not satisfied with the direction the Democrats are taking in the United States. Why? Why is that? What problem do Latino voters have with the Democratic Party? Well, the answer might be as obvious as it seems. They just don't like what we've got now. It is entirely possible that, like all normal people, Hispanic voters have come to despise the entitled urban liberals who run everything, and why wouldn't they despise them? Those people are absurd. Not a single word they utter is sincere ever and everything they touch turns to filth. We can give you countless examples of this, but we're going to pull one from today's news. Washington, D.C. Council member Brianne Nadeau has long promised to love and protect illegal aliens in Washington, D.C and thanks to her and many like her local government, the District of Columbia is now a "sanctuary city." That's how much they love illegal aliens, Brianne Nadeau especially. She loves them and yet the moment actual illegal aliens showed up in Washington, D.C., sent by the governor of Texas, Brianne Nadeau became completely hysterical about it. ... They've turned us into a border town. Really? Why is that bad? What's wrong with border towns? Weren't you just telling us, Brianne Nadeau, how great border towns are, so much diversity, so much strength. But as it turns out, and this probably won't shock you, Brianne Nadeau didn't mean any of it. Brianne Nadeau doesn't want illegal aliens in her neighborhood any more than the overwhelmingly Hispanic voters of Zapata County, Texas, want them in theirs. So, what would that make Brianne Nadeau? Well, a disgusting little hypocrite. You knew that already. A lot of Hispanic voters are learning it now. So, there's that: the basic repulsiveness of Democratic Party leaders – by the way, nearly all of whom are openly hostile to the historic Christianity of Latin America that a lot of immigrants still believe in. But then there's also crime. Crime is the big one. It seems likely that more than any other issue, crime, the increase in crime in the United States, is moving Hispanic voters to the right. They see, as we all see, liberals aggressively encouraging crime. Crime destroys their neighborhoods. Crime destroys the lives of the weakest and these voters, like all voters watched Nancy Pelosi call MS-13 children of God at the same moment that MS-13 members were hacking Salvadoran immigrants to death with machetes. Remember when Pelosi said that? So, they watch someone who clearly doesn't actually believe in God, invoke God repeatedly to defend something that's completely indefensible. Just a year before Pelosi's heartfelt tribute to MS-13 an MS-13 gang member stabbed a man outside Washington more than 100 times and then beheaded him and ripped out his heart. That was a child of God? No, Trump was right. That was an animal. Hispanic voters can see that. Most of them did not go to Yale Law School to their great credit. Just days ago, a man called Jose Solano Landaeta beheaded a mother on the street in Silicon Valley. Her two young children watched as he murdered her and who was this man? We reached out to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office officials to learn more about him. We asked, was he here in the country illegally? And here's the response that we got. "I'm sorry, I'm not able to share that information." Why is that? Well, we can guess why, because, of course, there's a very high chance that this man was in the country illegally and not by accident. Democrats have suspended border enforcement to win the love of Hispanic voters. What they apparently did not realize because they're not super bright, is that Hispanic voters don't want violent lunatics in their neighborhoods either. They're not into beheading people. Who knew? There's one other factor that may be moving this large and centrally important group of voters to the right. People whose families have immigrated from the third world may be more sensitive than most to the importance of the rule of law. The rule of law is the one thing that America has always had that the rest of world has not. That's why people come here and most immigrants consider it important still. Liberals do not consider it important. They're working to end it. Equal protection under the law is disappearing. At every level of American life, Liberals apply an obvious double standard and that double standard is based on race. That would be matters of education and employment, obviously, but also matters of law enforcement and criminal justice. Liberals put up with certain behavior from some people that they would never accept in other people. That is the definition of unfairness, but you see it every single day. Remember the arrest of that Dominican bodega owner in New York, the guy who was violently assaulted by a man whose girlfriend tried to rob the store? The bodega owner tried to defend himself, and he stabbed his attacker, as most people would. Authorities in New York charged that man with murder and sentenced to jail and everyone could tell this was a double standard. Would an elderly Black bodega owner had been arrested for stabbing a Dominican attacker? Obviously not. No one said it, but everyone saw it and everyone understood the unfairness of that, including Hispanic voters. Why would they like it? If they wanted to live in a deeply unfair society, they would have stayed in the countries their ancestors came from, but they came here because it's a fair society. That's the main appeal of America, not a robust economy, but the fact that we're all equal under the law. That's the one thing other countries don't have and we do or did. So, there's a double standard and everyone sees it and it's not just the level of bodega owners, it goes to the very top of the Democratic Party, to its top candidates. In South Carolina, for example, Democrats have nominated a Senate candidate, U.S. Senate, called Krystle Matthews. Krystle Matthews was caught on tape recently by James O'Keefe's group, Project Veritas, openly advocating for punishing people because they're the wrong skin color. Not exaggerating.

Former NYC Mayor Giuliani: 9/11 "Is Not Part Of History Yet," "This Is Not Over"

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 15:09
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani reflects on the lessons of Sept. 11 during an interview with Newsmax: "Never forget the sacrifices of the brave men and women that defend you." "There are two lessons really because this is not part of history yet. It's the same lesson as Pearl Harbor... Always be prepared. But the second lesson is this is still a threat. This is a live situation, this is not over." "Islamic terrorists still seek to come back here," he said. "They're training more than ever in Afghanistan."

VP Kamala Harris: "We Have A Secure Border In That That Is A Priority For Any Nation," "The Border Is Secure"

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 15:06
NBC's "Meet The Press" host Chuck Todd asked Vice President Kamala Harris about the staggering number of people illegally crossing the U.S. border and asked whether she would call the border "secure," during an interview that aired on the 21st anniversary of 9/11. CHUCK TODD: Final topic here. Since we're here in Texas, I want to ask you about the border. Would you call the border secure? VICE PRES. KAMALA HARRIS: I think that there is no question that we have to do what the president and I asked Congress to do, the first request we made: pass a bill to create a pathway to citizenship. The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular, over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed. CHUCK TODD: We're going to have two million people cross this border for the first time ever. You're confident this border's secure? VICE PRES. KAMALA HARRIS: We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration. But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix given the deterioration that happened over the last four years. We also have to put into place a law and a plan for a pathway for citizenship for the millions of people who are here and are prepared to do what is legally required to gain citizenship. We don't have that in place because people are playing politics in a state like this and in Congress. By the way, you want to talk about bipartisanship on an issue that at one time was a bipartisan issue both in terms of Republican senators and even presidents.

Bannon: FBI "Muscle... Jackboots" Will Target MAGA Voices Like Charlie Kirk, Alex Jones, Tucker Carlson "Up To Assassination"

Sun, 09/11/2022 - 14:47
Former Trump top aide Steve Bannon cited himself, Alex Jones, Charlie Kirk, Tucker Carlson, and Donald Trump as the leading voices of the "MAGA Movement" and said the "American branch" of globalism is being led by the Biden administration. "This is this globalist apparatus -- this is the American arm of that, the Biden regime -- and what they are trying to do is shut down everybody, whether it is Alex Jones, Charlie Kirk, Steve Bannon, Tucker Carlson, Donald Trump. They're trying to use lawfare, financial terrorism, everything legally, and quite frankly, up to assassinations," Bannon told "The Charlie Kirk Show" on Friday. "That's why they're swatting people like crazy." "If we blink, it is over. So screw them, I spit right in their eye." "The FBI is the Gestapo. I know they hate when I say that but they're the Gestapo," Bannon also said. "Here's my point: they're losing. They're only trying to do this national security state muscle because they know they're not winning."
