7:01 pm
business roundtable and big money run in the race. moore won against incumbent senator legislator strange. a former lobbyist who is no stranger to the dc swamp. it is impressive whf you consider that mitch mcconnell and republican establishment propped up strange and paying 150 per vote that strange won. and moore won by double-digits. 63 of 67 counties and president trump empbraced moore and complimented him for winning a great race and saying he is sure to the election. >> we have a man who can be a great senator. and i never met him or smoke to him and i am very happy with him and legislator came a long way
7:02 pm
from the time, and ran a great race and roy ran a great race. moore's victory is a blow with mitch mcconnell. aside from backing the losing candidate mcconnell was forced to call off the repeal of obamacare and the third failed attempt to muster 50 votes in the senate and bob corker of tennessee announced he would not seek reelection of 2015. and that is another senate that anti- conservative will attempt to get with gusto. the midterm elections are already under way and popullism and economic nationalism proved

7:05 pm
game changing and we are seeking to do it in one year. we'll get on the same page as the president and why today is so important. >> lou: some people question why it takes so long for the house and senate to get behind the president's agenda and instead of the better way nonsense and all of the other counter and conflicting currents that we are running through the benefit of politics. will the president get what he wants in the house and senate? >> yes. we jumped on the president's agenda he wanted 15 separate bills and roll back regulation. we got them to his daevenlth i am disappointed the senate

7:08 pm
small business. and te duct the interest payments and make sure more can do simple cash accounting and simple way to keep their books. it is all in on small business because they are a big part of the local economy. >> how soon will we see tax reform? >> great question, it depends on the budget. no budget, no tax reform. and today in the house, after the republicans across the spectrum saw how bold we are going. they signed on to the budget as well. we are moving next week on this budget. once it is signed by the senate and the house, we'll move on tax reform. >> lou: we wish you the best of luck. >> thank you. >> lou: we'll have more.

7:15 pm
candidate and as moore is. moore will win in the fall and he will stay there as long as he wants and i hope it is a good president. this was not his natural instinct. it was the majority leader trying to throw the race by throwing money. >> lou: in a week no one will pay attention. ncertainly not if the republicans hold the seat which they should. it will be a passing event. >> lou: i make you a bet that president trump will make sure judge moore will be elected. >> more is a good smart guy and he will be close to the president but not to mcconnell. >> lou: he shouldn't be.
7:16 pm
mcconnell is a disaster. he can throw estimated 10 million in a 30 million race on one side and all of that money going to legislator strange $150 a vote and he can't win. unbelievable. >> mcconnell did not have a good day yesterday. >> lou: and may he have many more would be the expression on the popullist in the country and those who care about this country. this may have a startling affect. at least some people may be startled on the direction of politics with the republican party. corker leaves the senate seat next year. and not waiting for anything. this is a time when it is clear that the populist movie goes beyond national politics and to the states.
7:17 pm
>> corker announced no reelection because of a fearful of the primary. and others will say do i want a challenge to me and they may leave before much longer, too. and i think it is a new day in politics and the people will speak again. >> lou: i am surprised it is not happening in the democratic side. we haven't heard about the elizabeth waren and bernie sanders wing against the more centerist democrats. i think it is coming. >> lou: we saw the presidential democratic party. it is between a 70-year-old man and a 74-year-old senator, it is talking about the nonsense about a new century. they don't know who they are and
7:18 pm
how they are doing. >> they are relevant to the process. >> lou: 2020, or 2040. >> they need to find younger americans. >> lou: the ones they trotted out so far haven't got a chance. >> and the generation that's been running will not get out of the way. >> lou: how about the republicans? they have a huge issue of the rino and jeff blake and wicker and the list goes on. all of these rinos screwed up the senate and house. >> flake already has a serious challenger and to a certain extent the other two probably will, too. and i think again, the message yesterday was that there is
7:19 pm
a bunch much voters that are not happy and you have a republican and senator, doesn't mean a lot if you don't produce. >> lou: i love the leadership the president showed on the nfl and the left dismissing it is a culture war. it is a distraction. when it is profound and fundmental to the politics. >> culture is a big part of our politics and the president proved his ability to read the public mood on these things is unprecedented. we don't know if there is a strategy. >> lou: why do you need a strategy. corporatist want this and not.
7:20 pm
here is a map leading on this country and out of 16 other candidates, which one had a vissol? only trump had a position on issues and established the ground work and introduced the issues in the entire campaign. >> the flag issue is consistent with america first. right down the middle of the lane. loupe lou 1600, employees. >> the nfl have gigantic flag and have hundreds of soldiers and sailors and hair force jets and make a deal wrapping themselves in the flag and let 5 or 6. >> and recently quit charging the military for the privilege. >> and then the football players make tb a place to prove test.
7:21 pm
>> lou: it is goodell who showed himself to be a perfect [bleep] of millionaires that lost their way. player and owners. to get this far in dishonoring our flag and national anthem and every member of our military. at what point does reason prevail here on the part of those malcontent and entitled and abject reckless fools in >> when it hits them in the pocketbooks. that's the only way to get their attention. >> lou: are you watching pro football? >> a little bit but not much. >> that is a sacrifice. hugh lou thank you to've've -- >> lou: i want to say thank you to at&t and directv.
7:22 pm
we cancelled the nfl, we refuse. >> stand up, we'll watch. kneel don't, we'll not watch. >> lou: i think that is right. at&t and directv, for giving refund to all who cancel, we appreciate it and i think that is just nice leadership on the part of a corporation, two corporation. >> and a new tax bill, take the corporate boxes away. >> lou: corporate america supports sports that wouldn't pay their way. ed and michael, our question is do you believe that the strengthening populist wave will lead to mcconnell's exit. follow me on instagram and up
7:23 pm
next, president trump demands that the nfl stop insulting america. >> i think it is a very important thing for the nfl to not allow people to kneel in the playing of our national anthem and respect our country and respect our flag. >> lou: the president's leadership and integrity and the subject of my commentary. stay with us, we'll be right stay with us, we'll be right back.
7:24 pm
7:25 pm
[suspensful music]
7:26 pm
7:27 pm
>> lou: the national left wing media refers to the player and our flag and the presidential condemnation of the insults as a controversy. let's be clear. there is no controversy here. the nfl's management and owner and players are simply dead wrong and their conduct is
7:28 pm
outrageous. and rationalization adds to the outrage. as i said last night. it is not a petty dispute between the leftest and president and fans that support the president. this is not a difference of opinion about the first amendment. the president defended our nation and value and flag and all that represents. nfl filled with contempt for its fan and the nation, at least they cherish, they have the gall to call the president divisive. and the responsibility for division is that of the leftest league and its players. some particularly in the left wing played the race car as the left does.
7:29 pm
for too long patriotic americans have been forced to watch as president after president took a knee before the left wing media complex and waged an all out war on american heritage and values and got away with it. in movies, televisions and commercials as parents and fathers are portrays as morons and normal families are mocked and right to life and individual dignity and family values are trampled by hollywood and yes, now the nfl. the nfl fully expected it could crudely insult every american and our simbombs of strength. insult our heritage and values and the left winning media laughed as they did so until president trump was elected on the simple idea that being a citizen means more than
7:30 pm
a consumer and people have to gophern. the president's stuning electorial victory means we don't bow to the nfl and that institution is hell bent on forcing the radiologist on the nation as it feasts on taxpayer dollars to fund stadium and players ensult our heritage and precious national values. make no mistake, the left means to tear down everything we whole sacred and subbetter president trump and his administration because they fear him, because they know he will stand up against all enemies of our great nation. president trump will not kneel before any enemy of america and he will not hide when there are enemies to be defeated and most of america now stands with him.
7:31 pm
our quotation of the evening from martin luther king junior. the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience. but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy. and the president is challenged and he head responded, we're coming right back. >> president trump warns the disgraceful nfl to show respect for the usa. >> in my opinion the nfl will have to change or their business will go to hell. >> lou: a tremendous back lash against the nfl and players with michelle. and what do you get when you put a souped up must apg and driver and hair spin turns on a colorado road? we'll show you the video here

7:35 pm
>> lou: a shocking new report showing the cost of illegal immigrant to taxpayers a year. all- time high driven by free
7:36 pm
medical care. joining me to talk about the immigration and subsidies of the nfl that disgraces the flag and anthem. michelle mauchin host of michelle investigates. and great to have you with us. start with illegal immigration and judge roy moore. does that mean the wall has a better chance of being built than before the election? >> it sure does. roy moore is a constitutional conservative and has been opposed to the massive imposition. cost of illegal immigration including the bloody cost of not enforcing those borders. this is a very depend thing and i hope that president trump sees it that way, too.
7:37 pm
>> lou: the president fully supporting roy moore. and roy moore putting a tannedard in the ground in the state of alabama for popullism and we'll see a reaction in washington d.c. beyond bob corker who decided not to see reelection for his senate seat. will youee more of the mitch mccaulle seek safrpthuary. >> it is time for the republicans establishment ones take a knee themselves. and in the case of alabama with roy moore. it is not simply he was aspect- establishment, but the people of alabama trusted his record on traditional value and sovereignty, and in line with
7:38 pm
the important battle that president trump drew a line in the sand. it is standing up for america and unapologetic. and particularly in arizona where jeff flake has been on the so many outside issues. he faces kelly. >> lou: he is inexplicable. another group that is inexplicable, the nfl. the 1600 players and ownership and management taken leave of their senses. their own by laws call for them to stand on the sidelines with the helmets on in their left hand and hands over their heart.
7:39 pm
we haven't heard about punishment or discipline. it is appalling what we are watching. >> it is selective enforcement of their own rules because so many people in law enforcement remember when the nfl forbade the dallas cowboy for honoring the cops that were killed in the ambush that was sponsored by black lives matter relevant cops. so many of the owners and players that go along with sheep and with the kneeling gesture. it stems from collin kaepernick who wore socks that depicted cops as pigs and a t- shirt ofifiedel castro and praised the education over americas. this man is insane and people are not understanding what the gestures are endorsing.
7:40 pm
and the fact that they are doing it overseas is all the more obnoxious. >> lou: this is a fight that the president will win. but he is resolute and right. >> we are the land of the free because of the brave. let's not forget it. >> lou: michelle, always great to talk with you. sleet in tonight's poll, do you believe that the strengthening popullist wave in this country will lead to mcconnell's exit. roll the video as we show you a student rider making his way up pike's peak in colorado and testing the jaw dropping edge and guard rail and a this happened foot drop awaited him

>> lou: the taliban targeting the kabul airport after the james mattis arrived. they struck. and u.s. and afghan forces repelled the assault. taliban claimed that mattis was the target. for more on the situation in afghanistan and the latest on the russian witch hunt and of course, the deep state.
7:46 pm
retired attorney general tony schaffer. >> thank you for having me. >> lou: we'll start with general mattis. for crying out loud. the secretary of defense a reiched with an unannounced visit. >> we have a situation where we rely on the allies and afghans for purposes was comprehensive security. it's not working. we have had number much green on blue attacks and taliban infiltrated in the ranks of the afghan military and this is going to continue. and in this case, this was a joint by their own admission joint isis/taliban attack. we are successful in defeating al-qaeda to a great extent, isis has taken al-qaeda's place as an enabler and supporter of the
7:47 pm
taction. we have change the way we approached it. we have been there 16 years and we ain't won yet. we have to figure out what to do here. >> lou: the president has given general mattis a free hand to, with force levels and whatever strategy is it required to kill the islamic state and the taliban. yeah. >> lou: and to see rocketses fired at our secretary of defense in this situation is not, not well a comforting sign. >> one of the factors that the pentagon is not dealing with is pakistan. the bottom line is this. we have pretended that pakistan is our ally.
7:48 pm
yet it will trace back to the pakistan border and safe haven and training areas of pakistan. you never get below the skin to get the root out. until we change that nothing will change. >> lou: that is one of the most elegant metaphor. >> i am good with words. >> lou: you are. tom church of judicial watch and wants a special counsel to investigate mueller. we hear from congressman goodlock the chair he wants a second special counsel to deal with loretta lynch and hillary clinton. and the republicans control the house and white house and senate, what in the devil is going on?
7:49 pm
>> we need to look at jim clapper. i spoke to a member of the trump team who was in the meeting with the president and jim clapper when jim clapper breech briefed the president on the russia issue. >> lou: throw clapper in there. he lied many times. >> there is achlem and over. >> where is the republican party and house and senate in why aren't they governing and setting the direction for these investigations? >> that's a million dollar question and lou, this is the bottom line. the president will have to figure out a way to influence allies on the hill to do this. you have jim jordan and mark meadows. >> and don't forget paul ryan and mcdonnell douglas conle. who hate the president's guts.
7:50 pm
>> you have troops in the senate and house who want to do this. in talk to them on a daily basis. and full disclosure. i met with steve king from iowa on this topic. it is not that you don't have members that don't understand this. bullpen a fat nugget leadership layer who simply don't want to do their job and that's the problem here. and it is it a political well issue and not a legislative issue and not a legal issue. it is a deep state issue and the leadership in the house and senate who are bought. lock, stock and barrel and they are not serving the interest of the nation. >> the deep state guy, it is deep state guys, that's the issue. >> lou: it is a major pressure that nemeds to be resolved.

>> lou: joining me now. katie, who it is good to have you here. radio talk show host, mark simon. great to have you, mark.
7:55 pm
katie, what is so complicated about this deal? why aren't the players simply honoring the flag and taking their protest of whatever it is they are protesting somewhere else and leaving work alone? >> i think, work is their biggest means of which to protest whatever they are protesting. it rings so hollow to me. there's so many internal issues that the nfl is. players are arrested for drunk drieching and murder and abuse to an mamand massive amounts of domestic violence and they don't seem to care about that. but okay kneeling with the national anthem for a lot offier goal? it screams emptiness and hollowness to me that they will not say we have serious issues going on with our players that we don't care to address and
7:56 pm
we'll cover it up by having a big brew ha ha about the nationalan them. >> they set the record for a dummest protest. they may have thought brutality or police. but now the flag and freedom of speech and constitution and they lost the point of whatever the protest was. who are they to protest brutality a empty before they commit two solid hours of brutality on each other. and they talk to the nation when we are tuning in and going to the game and watch a football game and not listen to the learned lectures of a cornerback or defensive tackle. it is preposterous and why the owners have not said enough and stop this right now, kenny, how
7:57 pm
are they going to get out of this mess? >> you have to wonder why they department say that. potential back lash and retribution. but they are facing back lash from a different segment of the population that doesn't want to enjoy football and have it ruined by politics. directv offering refunds and money lost because people don't want to have politics bleed in to every aspect of their lives and stou they are paying for this. >> when lou dobbs cancel the football package you are in trouble. >> and we are not tuning in tonight. as i said earlier, i wanted to check out the beginning of it. my wife said no. >> she's not beginning to watch the game. >> and i think there are
7:58 pm
millions of people who feel much the same way. the idea that the left dominates and insigneulates everything in hollywood and movies and television, and you name it and now, and now the left is insigneated in the nba and the nfl. what do you think, katie? >> and this hasn't worked for espn. espn got political and it blew up in its face and the nfl will have to blow up in their face, too. it will not work out. these are private entitties and companies. and it is their bottom line is hurt by the actions of people that they employ and they tonight like that they are within their rights to do something about it. if the players want to get on
7:59 pm
their knee they have their rights to do that. but if there is consequences, there are consequences. >> lou: no one is it arguing. the left is trying to stay president trump was interfering with their freedom of speech. we are not. we and he is not. >> the president saw a curveball and swung away and there will be big repercutions next year. this not saluting the flag, this will affect the elections. >> lou: you know, to see those people along the sidelines, whether they are coaches or players, all of the money they make, the good fortune of their lives and great fortune to live in america, it is it mindless and the president has called them and they will ultimately
8:00 pm
