>> we covered several days of the annual conservative political action conference, that was held just outside washington dc. watch the firstname.lastname@example.org. in this part of the organization's chair talked to mark meadows of north carolina and jim jordan of ohio, about conservatism and the 2020 elections. >> >> [ cheering ] >> [ applause ] >> thank you. how about one for him? thank you. how about one for him? thank you. did that video make you feel good? we know what we are up against. we know, they are being very clear these days. yesterday was a busy day for
all of us. checking into the hotel, people flying in, i happened to turn on tv late last night to get a glimpse of our democracy in action with the hearing yesterday, with a certain guy who calls himself a lawyer, i am never heard of a lawyer secretly taping their own clients. it is interesting, the terminology that gets used, and to both of you, i think you need to understand something. when you are in that hearing, and you are taking those stands, you are speaking for all of us. >> thank you. >> [ cheering ] >> [ applause ] >> to congressman jordan who had the job of sitting right there at the tippy top, leading the republicans on the committee, help us understand what is going on. >> this is step one in the
democrats crazy effort to keep the president of the united states, to impeach him. no accident that last week the make a donor for the democrats organize a townhall in manhattan. the chairman of the judiciary committee organized his constituents, pushing them to push mr. nadler to start impeachment proceedings, and this week, the same thing in chairman cummings district. yesterday was step one and the best they can come up with, is the guy who is going to prison in two months for lying to congress. that is their star witness, their first big hearing, that is what this is all about. in spite of the great record the president has, i love that montage where he is talking about making america great again. think about this. think about the first few years of his presidency. regulations reduce, economy growing at an unprecedented rate, unemployment the slowest and 50 years, out of the iran deal.
jerusalem, corsets, hostages home, new nafta agreement, and a president who at the state of the union will stand up and talk about the sanctity of human life. this is an amazing two years. and yet the democrats want to impeach him. it is crazy. that is what yesterday was about. it was laying the foundation. we have to be ready for it and know what is coming and stop it with the facts. >> congress in meadows, we have some new sheriff in town who are running the house of representatives. they are running to the left. they are socialism. help all of the conservatives, not just the wonderful conservatives in the room with the millions of people who are watching america overseas and from across their own country, looking into the swamp and saying, what is going on? do you really think that the
democratic party is having a full embrace with socialism? they are embracing socialism. before i get there, i have a message. maybe i have to started out this way. good morning deplorable's. how about that? >> he loves you guys. whether you are watching online or are here this morning, is the forgotten man and woman, that this president is here to represent, and he is representing all of us, it is all about trying to change who we are as a nation. it is time that we quit apologizing for our greatness. we are a great country and we need to celebrate it. >> here is the interesting thing though. with this green new deal, they are trying to get rid of all the cows. i have good news. chick-fil-a stock will go way up.
because we will need more chicken. we can laugh a little bit, but this is a serious thing. as you mentioned, because what is happening is, they are trying to lay the foundation for impeachment. jim was talking about it. it is not just impeachment, it is taking away everything that is foundational to who we are. we don't have to look any further than venezuela. it was a young bernie sanders who was talking about, it is good to be in line to wait for food. give me a break. in venezuela, they are wondering if they have enough rabbits to feed their people. we have to get to a point where we celebrate capitalism and understand that in america, it does not matter who you are, where you came from, that the american dream is available for everybody, i have lived that dream, and quite frankly, it is available to each and every person, and if we start this
socialism, i get that acosta cortez is doing it in her office. where she is saying she has upped the amount of money she is paying for staff assistance, to $52,000. he is not going to have a single problem getting a staff assistant in washington dc. she may have a problem getting some of those people at the upper portion, but socialism does not just take the money that we pay to employees, and compress it, it actually would take her salary and compress it. she is serious about it, maybe she needs to put her money in there. >> you might want to drop that. >> how about a socialist and country who can say everyone in the office earned the same amount? suspect that's a good deal. >> club? congressman jordan, people are worried.
as your colleague and friend says, this whole embrace of socialism, we can market. but it is also quite serious, especially when you look at the democrats were lining up to be your next president. our next president. we have never seen this before. other democrats who have achieved the presidency, they ran as centrist. all of them. now they are running as people embracing a failed ideology, a dangerous ideology. give us some hope about what republicans in congress can do to fight back. >> we just have to tell the truth and understand the basic factor. they are going to be running against donald trump and they will beat him. when it gets down to president trump against whoever the left nominates, president trump is going to clean their clock in my judgment and when. understand how radical, inc. about this. kaepernick, when he disrespects the flag, they embrace cuomo, when he said america was never that great. and they also embraced maxine waters when she says go out and
arrest anybody who supports the president. remember that ranch she did? get in their face. this is how radical they are. and in the position, green new deal, 70% marginal tax rate, think about immigration alone. just on immigration. congressman said abolished i.c.e. pelosi said loss or immoral. you said the leader of their party in the last presidential campaign says she was a borderless hemisphere. the person who gave the response, after the president's amazing speech, the person who gave the response, abram says, she is okay with noncitizens voting. they take those radical positions up against the record of our president and his leadership, it will be no contest. the american people are smart, they like this idea that you get to set goals in this country and go chase him down into good things for you and
your family. that is the american dream. they like that and will support him. >> we live in an area of fake news. tell me about this shift. >> you need some type of thing? i don't need any time to think. there is plenty of material. it's a target rich environment. here is the interesting thing, he continues to go on over and over again saying he has all of this collusion evidence. you know i say? bring it on. because we know that he does not have anything. in fact the one thing that we may be able to believe, yesterday from michael cohen, is the fact that he said, there was no evidence of russia collusion. it's about time that we call them out for what they are. adam schiff, don't you think it would be a great idea to bring him here at sea pack and have him debate to jordan? what you think about that? >> i like it. i would like him to bring all
those documents. >> he would classify the documents. that's a big thing. we believe in transparency, transparency is good. declassify the documents. and when you see it, you will realize, that this president has been telling the truth when it comes to this whole hoax. after yesterday, people are starting to hum ding , the witch is dead. i can tell you that. adam schiff met with simpson the summer. palling around the very guy who put together the fake dossier. what do we learn yesterday? adam schiff also has been talking with michael cohen about the topics that will be discussed today in the intel closed-door hearing. you go back to the basics, i know you know this, the clinton campaign paid the law firm who hired simpson who then went and hired who? a foreigner to put together the fake dossier that they funneled through all different sources
to the fbi use that document, dressed it up. took it to a secret court to get a warrant to spy on the trump campaign. guess what? the american people did not buy it. they elected donald trump president. now what do the democrats do? because that failed? they are trying this crazy impeachment thing. that's where they are at. all we have to do is, present the truth. just like matt does. present the truth, present why our ideas are so much better. if we do that donald trump is going to kick their tails in the next election and we will win back the house. >> north carolina. you going to be okay? he's going to be more than okay in north carolina. just a quick story. early on, when the campaign was going, i was on the plane, with donald trump. by the way, he is the only president that went backwards when he got air force one. i want to let you know that. we were on the plane, traveling
and he says how do you think we are going to do? everybody is saying we are going to lose. news carolina by five points. i said mr. president, not only are you going to win, but you are going to win it by more than three points. he reminds me that he wanted by 3 1/2 points. and i was wrong. the recent polls have him way ahead. he is actually more popular and why? because he actually, has fulfilled his campaign promises that he promised all of us. that is why. >> what a novel concept. just do what you say. >> it never hurts to do what you say you will do. >> there is really nothing he is and that he did not talk about. it drives people crazy. they want to tell you, he's dishonest, what is more honest than going in front of huge rallies and these television cameras at people and saying i want to build a wall, i want to secure the border, i don't think we should rip babies out of the womb moments before they
are being born, i think we should have an economic system and a tax system and regulatory system that allows individual americans to live their lives. and make their investments and provide for the families. >> one of the big things for me is, when president after president after president said that they were going to move the embassy to jerusalem, this president did it and it was about time. it was about time. >> [ applause ] >> [ cheering ] >> the bottom line is this town does not like the president because this town is not used to people coming here and doing what they said. but the american people, you all appreciate that very fact, it is something i appreciate, i wish every single american could have time to sit down and talk with the president like we have the privilege to do. when you are around him, suspect they will have that privilege on saturday. >> [ applause ] >> [ cheering ] >> he is on air force one, are
you excited about the president coming here? specs [ cheering ] >> [ applause ] >> i was going to say, when you are around the president you can since the love he has for our troops, for our law enforcement, for the american people, you can feel it. that is what you want. someone who believes the, who will fight for it and do what they say. >> that is right. we are really proud of this collaboration. what is going on with conservatives across the country. some of the folks in here today, might not call themselves conservatives. we have a lot of people in this country who are looking at the country and saying we tried this recipe of socialism for eight years under obama, it did not turn out so good. you know it did not turn out good? if you were poor in america, chances are your life got worse. and you are more poor. if you are middle-class, chances are you were stuck. and you could not see advancement.
you so your kids and your grandkids struggling. but i encourage you to do throughout this conference, to the next few days and the rest of the year, reach out to these people. they are trying to find a home politically. accept them. they might disagree with you on an issue here or there. they might not understand every part of our conservative philosophy. but if they are with this on a couple of key issues, that is an important alliance to make? well said. i think the interesting thing is, when we start to unify, around what truly makes us great, the little things don't matter quite as much. they may call you deplorable, but most people will call you adorable patriots. just remember that. >> we might have a new theme from adorable. from deplorable. >> you can see somewhere, it's a new stage this year, what makes america great? we know how special we are. i bet jim jordan can tell us.
what do you think makes america great? specs the idea that you can set goals and chase them down, you have liberty and freedom, the first amendment, the right to practice your faith, most importantly, your right to set goals and make them happen for you and your family. that's what makes america special and it is great that an organization like cpac has been protecting those liberties for so many years. >> over and over and over again. can you do me a favor? the reason why these two members of congress are here is there ought not to more important people to protecting our values and jim jordan and mark [ indiscernible ] can you stand up and encourage them? specs thank you. god bless you. thank you. god bless you. >> [ music ] >> [ applause ] specs [ cheering ]
