August 14, 2019 100 By Stanley Isaacs


>>Laura: ALL OF THE MEDIA ARE EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED BY THE SUCCESS OF PRESIDENT TRUMP DESPITE 2 YEARS OF AN INVESTIGATION THAT WENT NOWHERE. AND NOW THEY ARE MOVING FROM AN OBSESSION OVER IMPEACHMENT TO THIS.>>WE KNOW HE IS A CRIMINAL WITH OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. HERE’S THE ANSWER. YOU CREATE A 3rd LANE. YOU TAKE THE WORD IMPEACHMENT AND YOU CHANGE IT TO CRIMINAL ACTIVITY.>>THE HEADLINE IS PRESIDENT TRUMP LIKELY COMMITTED A CRIME BUT I THINK NOT CHARGE HIM BECAUSE SITTING PRESIDENTS COULD NOT BE CHARGED.>>HE MADE IT CRYSTAL CLEAR.>>Laura: IMPEACHMENT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH ANYMORE. JOINING ME IS FORMER SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE AND HOST OF A NEW POD CAST AND FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR. NEWT GINGRICH. DO YOU THINK THAT THIS WILL HURT DEMOCRATS IN 2020 IF THEY END UP PUSHING FORWARD ON THIS?>>SURE. I THINK THEY WILL LOOK NUTS. HE HIMSELF LOOKED NUTS. YOU COME OUT AND SAY THE RUSSIANS WE INDICTED ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. BUT NOW THE PRESIDENT, WE HAVE NOT PROVEN HIM INNOCENT YET. THINK ABOUT THAT MUELLER SAID. NOW YOU HAVE THE DEMOCRATS SAYING MAYBE WE CAN’T IMPEACH HIM BUT WE KNOW HE IS A CRIMINAL? HOW DO THEY KNOW THAT? YOU HAVE TO START OUT WITH A FASCIST LEFT, FREE SPEECH MEANINGS YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK. IF YOU SAY ANYTHING WRONG YOU ARE HOMOPHOBIC OR SOMETHING. THEIR NORMAL BEHAVIOR IS TO JUST MAKE STUFF UP. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN GUILTY OF ANYTHING. 2 YEARS MUELLER HAD 15 LEFT WING-DEMOCRATIC LAWYERS. ALL VERY GOOD PROSECUTORS. HE HAD $30 MILLION. HE LOCKED UP AT LEAST 2 PEOPLE IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT THAT ARE UN-AMERICAN AND COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING. THE DEMOCRATS NEED TO RECOGNIZE SHOULD A DRY HOLE.>>Laura: THE POLICY DEAL. EVEN SOME DEMOCRATS WHO ARE LEFTY, ARE GETTING A LITTLE FRUSTRATED BY THE FACT THAT WHEN THEY ARE INVITEED TO SPEAK TO THE MEDIA, THE POLICIES THEY WANT TO TALK ABOUT, THEY ARE BE ECLIPSED. BRAD SHERMAN EXPERIENCED THIS YESTERDAY ON MSNBC.>>I BEEN TRYING TO TALK ABOUT THE SAUDI NUCLEAR PROGRAM AND WE WOULD TALK ABOUT EFFORTS TO CONTROL DRUG PRICES. THERE IS AN IMAGE IN THE PUBLIC THAT THE CONGRESS IS ONLY FOCUSSED ON IMPEACHMENT. THAT’S NOT WHAT I AM WORKING ON.>>Laura: DO YOU THINK MORE DEMOCRATS WILL PUSH BACK ON THIS? THE POLLS, PRESIDENT TRUMP’S POLLS ARE GOING UP. I GET THE SENSE TO THE FACT THAT DEMOCRATS ARE NOT INTERESTED IN DEBATE. THEY ARE INTERESTED IN DEMONIZING. THAT’S WHAT THEY DO.>>WE HAVE A REFERENDUM ON THE NEWS MEDIA AND THEY LOST. THAT’S THE NUMBER 1 THING IN THE LAST 2 YEARS. REALLY 3 YEARS COUNTING THE CAMPAIGN. TRUMP IS STILL PRESIDENT AND IMPROVING HIS POLLS NUMBERS. THE COUNTRY IS CLOSER TO TRUMP THAN RADICAL DEMOCRATS. I PREDICT YOU WILL SEE A REPUBLICAN SENATE PASSING LEGISLATION AND NANCY PELOSI IS OVER HERE WITH A PARTY WHO WANTS TO SPEND EVERY DAY ATTACKING DONALD TRUMP AND WANTS TO PASS SOMETHING. I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISEED TO SEE KEVIN MCCARTHY FORM AN ALLIANCE WITH 40 DEMOCRATS IF THEY STAY NEGATIVE.>>Laura: LOOK AT ALL OF THE DEMOCRATS. WE ARE DOING A SERIES ON AN UPDATE ON THE MODERATE DEMOCRATS. SO MANY PLEDGE TO WORK WITH TRUMP. PUSH COMES TO SHOVE. NOT WORKING WITH TRUMP. THAT’S AN EXCELLENT POINT. PART OF THE NEW ISSUE THAT TRUMP IS TACKLING IS THE BORDER. YOU AND I HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT IT FOR YEARS. THE SITUATION IS BEYOND A CRISIS BY ALMOST EVERY MEASURE. WHAT ABOUT THE DECISION TO SLAP 5% TARIFFS ON MEXICO UNLESS THEY STEM THIS MASSIVE TIDE OF HUMANITY?>>ONE THING THAT WILL BE PART OF TRUMP’S LEGACY THAT HISTORIANS WILL WRITE ABOUT IS HE HAS COMMON SENSE AND HE FOLLOWS PROJECTS THROUGH LIKE THE BUSINESSMAN HE WAS. NONE OF THESE PEOPLE WOULD BE ON THE AMERICAN BORDER IF THEY WERE NOT COMING THROUGH MEXICO. WITHOUT MEXICAN COMPLIANCE, ALL OF THESE PEOPLE WOULD STILL BE DOWN IN CENTRAL AMERICA. I THINK IS THE FIRST TIME WE HAVE SEEN THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT SAY — BY THE WAY, THE DEMOCRATS AND CONGRESS ARE FORCING HIM INTO THIS POSITION BECAUSE THEY REFUSE TO DO THE COMMON SENSE THINGS WHICH ARE FUND THE BORDER PATROL AND BUILD THE WALL AND ALLOW US TO CONTAIN THINGS. THE PRESIDENT SAID IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HELP ME, THEN I CAN USE MY AUTHORITY TO PUT SO MUCH PRESSURE ON MEXICO. IF HE THEN MOVES TO CUT OFF SENDING MONEY TO MEXICO, YOU WOULD SEE AN ENORMOUS CRISIS IN THE MEXICAN ECONOMY.>>Laura: WE HAVE SOME REPUBLICAN SENATES AGAINST THESE TARIFFS. GRASSLEY AND A LOT OF OF THE FARMERS ARE HURT BY THE SOYBEAN TARIFFS. HOW MANY PAIN IS BEING INFLICTED ON THE AMERICAN CONSUMER? HOW LONG CAN THIS ADMINISTRATION HOLD OUT? I AGREE WITH WHAT THEY ARE DOING ON TARIFFS. I AM HEARING FROM WALL STREET PEOPLE WHO DO A LOT OF WORK IN CHINA, THIS IS REALLY HEARTH US. — HURTING US. BECAUSE YOU ARE DOING DEALS WITH COMMUNIST CHINA.>>A NUMBER OF BILLIONAIRES LOVE CHINA BECAUSE THAT’S HOW THEY BECAME BILLION AREAS. I — — I HOPE WE WILL USE THE CHINESE TARIFFS PAYMENTS TO TAKE CARE OF THE FARMERS WHO THE CHINESE ARE TRYING TO RIP OFF. IF HE DOES THAT IT WILL BECOME A NON-ISSUE. CHINA WILL NOT WIN A TRADE WAR WITH THE UNITED STATES. THAT’S JUST NOT POSSIBLE. THE CHINESE WILL BUILD COMPETITORS IN VIETNAM AND THE PHILIPPINES AND THEY WILL LOOK MARKET SHARE AND WE DON’T NEED THEM.>>Laura: ON MOST THINGS. THE SOYBEAN FARMERS WILL GET THE ATTENTION ON OTHER NETWORKS. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL HURT TRUMP. OUR ECONOMY VERSUS THE CHINESE ECONOMY, IT DOESN’T HURT US. DO THE MATH!>>THE PRESIDENT IS RIGHT IN THE NUMBER OF BILLION DOLLARS HE IS TALKING ABOUT. HE COULD AFFORD TO DOUBLE THE
