7:00 pm
think back to president obama getting the nobel prize for dog nothing. charles:hought it was a great meeting and i hope we get a lotore. in the meantime, here's lou. lou: good evening. our top stories, a bat for the soul of the republican party now under way. whether rino speaker paul ryan will be allowed to leave the party to certain defeat in the mid-terms. following his masters, the business round table and the chamber of commerce and the koch brothers into the abyss. or will lawmakers follow trump and legislate first and foremost for american working families and the middle class who have been run over by the donor class and the establishment that
7:01 pm
controlled the gop for decades. the establishment, ryan and senate majority leader mcconnell were stunned by last rimary results. president trump again the winner as were the candidates he endorsed. voters in south carolina siding with kate arrington, the idate who embraced the trump agenda and cd mark sanford an establishment never trumper. >> we are the party of president donald j. trump. lou: katie arrington is joining us here tonight. we'll be talking about the trump agenda. the fight also raging on capitol hill where deep state forces determined to subvert president trump also want to take over congress. flagrantly ignoring subpoenas for documents and information
7:02 pm
and stonewalling congressional oversight investigation and investigations into clinton corruption and obama spygate. the justice department corruption in full display. we'll be talking with charlie hurt of the washington times. he weighs in on why not a single republican leader in congress haso much as raised a finger to fight the blatant effort by the corrupt doj to take over the legislative branch. californians will soon have a chance to further demonstrate their political lunacy. we'll explain a controversial ballot measure that will allow voters to partition the state into three radical fringe enclaves. our top story. the republican wave has become a trump wave for the mid-terms. but out of control rinos are
7:03 pm
threatening to kill their political momentum handed to them by president trump and turn victory into defeat. katie arrington in south carolina joined a long of candidates who embraced the america first agenda of president trump. they include roger wicker of mississippi. adam laxalt in nevada. john cox in california. and asa hutchinson in arkansas. all this as paul ryan pushes for amnesty for illegal immigrants. he said he'll hold votes on two daca bills that will create an electoral disaster for republicans in november. >> this ant to b our caucus together on immigration.
7:04 pm
we have an actual chance in making law in solving this problem. lou: making law and doing it the ryan way. he hasn't shown anybody the text. this lon is being written in back rooms in the dark of night. my next guest joins me top discuss the severe abyss that awaits members of congress who sign on to the ryan ploy for the establishment and the rinos, all who will embrace his ryan first putting america -- somewhere around last. joining us tonight is republican congressman andy biggs of arizona. the president with a great showing again in the primaries. it should be clear to everyone except for your leadership here in the house and the senate than if they do not support this president and his agenda,
7:05 pm
electoral disaster awaits the entire republican conference. what do you think? >> i think this is trump's time. and i thinkt's easy people like me to say i got elected on trump agenda, president trump got elected on that agenda. if you are not going to follow and keep the promises you made, you are probably not going to be around. he made promises to the american people. he's doing everything he can to keep the promises. there are those not just in congress, but elsewhere in the political system that don't like donald trump, they don't like his agenda. i am not even sure it's his agenda. i think it's a personal attack on the president. i say let's get it done. if we don't, it will be a disaster for republicans in the mid-terms. lou: i don't think you can separate this president from
7:06 pm
this agenda. this is a man who is recognizing the american working family, the american middle class that has been shrinking. wages are for the first time in 20 years rising. this economy all abouthe prosperity of trump-onomics. the foreign leadership and foreign policy. donald trump has turned this country around in less than a year and a half. and you have got paul ryan who is acting like as he does the bidding of his masters on k street, he's sellingut your party. i keep talking to members of your conference. republicans leaders in point of fact, including in the freedom caucus, congressman, who act like we are going to ignore ryan and maybe he'll not harm us too badly if we follow in lock step
7:07 pm
right into the chasm that awaits them in november. >> you are right on that, lou. the agenda is what got president trump elected. but let's talk about the daca thing for a second. i hear people say don't say the what do you think the so-called fix the daca is? it's amnesty. it's everything the president campaigned against. i think that opens up a blue wave.cause not keeping your promises. and that gets to the trump agenda all over again it's easy to make it up and say we are not going -- it's not amnesty. but it is amnesty. anybody else is outside the country. so i fear to see the bill come
7:08 pm
up next week. lou: we have 23 people in your conference who signed on. revealed thems for what they are. more not on rinos. and they sold out their party. they are selling out their own tegrity. and are work as hard as they can -- they think they are rt of the resistance. but they don't have the guts to be democrats or the guts to be straightforward. your partysilledithe cowards than any time i have seen the republican party used to and for it stand for a sinecure lame duck speaker. we'll be talking with ed rollins. the smartest political stragist in the country. served in political administrations. i think the number is 50 the number of seats you will lose if they sign on to the ryan chant.
7:09 pm
i can't believe the freedom caucus, jim jordan, i can't believe anyone in that caucus would stand with that. because they know he's only doing with charles coke tells him to do. >> i'm not standing for that because i made a promise i keep those promises. when we look at the republican party today. it's trump's party. think it's moving that way. because the people in america support president trump and his agenda. that's what we should be keeping our promises as. this is real simple. you run an ad that says donald trump and his agenda. you talk about all the things you just mentioned. you say there is only one candidate that would support this agenda and you put out who that is. thin refined people there is one candidate who would be willing to impeach this president and
7:10 pm
you point out who that is. that's when we'll start winning these mid-term elections. they want this agenda. they sense it. lou: around straigh short, you always have been. ex lane to me again why your conference has not m -- he's a rino, a shameless coward. he hasn't said a word about supporting the president against the outrageous special counsel. he hasn't said a word, he undercut the president on the wall, wouldn't give him a dime. hasn't explained why he reduced immigration and customs for greater enforcementt is and more border security and the american people are demanding it. and you have got a speaker who is trying to raise the retirement age for social security to 70 and to reduce entitlements. the man is a poster boy that
7:11 pm
would be admitted by the democrats on almost every issue. yet you put up with paul ryan. >> i can't what my colleagues do. i -- we should be subpoenaing and holding in contempt people like rod rosenstein and the doj. we need to support the leadership to help us. because they have got it. i call upon you to help us. i do have an idea, lou. while you were just talking a second ago. we don't have to have a member of congress be a speaker. how about if i nome nate you? i think that we might have -- i think there might be two votes, not just two votes. i would say just two votes two votes. i would be proud to have two
7:12 pm
votes and be disappointed myself if i were to run. andy biggs, a great guy. reamarkrd now warning fellow republicans about their failure to embrace the president and the consequences that result. he said this. they don't want the tweet i got last flight. there is m like self-motivation. we'll talk with katie arrington, the republican cante who trounced sanford. and the dean ed rollins joining me next. we'll talk about the trump effect on gop primaries. and we'll talk about the rino effect on the nation he refuses to serve. stay with us.

7:17 pm
lou: canada's government run by the deceitful justin trudeau trying to do an end-round around president trump colluding with rino senators and dems to preserve unfair trade deficits that rob american workers and cut into this country's economic growth rate. there is a cost here. trillions of dollars, we haven't run a trade surplus in 43 years. here is the canadian foreign minister alongside never trumper republican senator bob corker as he hammers out a proposal trying to block the president's tariffs on steel and aluminum with the always alert bob menendez on the other side. canada plans to impose tar you
7:18 pm
rivers on u.s. goods july 1. last month mexico imposed around rivers and canada never permits dairy into the discussion across their borders. this is not a level playing field. it's just amazing the indoctrination, the propaganda so many administrations have spewed. this president is making certain everybody understanded the high cost of free trade. the administration announcing it will issue tariffs on $50 million in chinese goods. joining me now as i said, the dean himself. ed rollins, great american, great friend. great to have you here. ed: thank you, mr. speaker.
7:19 pm
you are going to send them all home and let the president run the country. lou: what are we to say about this? speaker ryan is a fraud, a sham, a boot liquo -- a boot licker fe establishment. the business round table. and to hell with the american people. this man is so bought out he might as well he a nascar suit on. ed: the state senate seat had been held for 18 years by republicans was lost yesterday. i told you when he was on the ticke lost the home state. lou: and his hometown. ed: i think at the end of the day he needs to get out of the way.
7:20 pm
the president's agenda is what republicans ought to be running on. the contract with america is basically president trump's contract. let's fix it and do the things he wantso do. ryan said i will go back to the old method of letting committees hold hearings. you have an immigration bill bob goodlatte put forward. it should be unanimous support of republicans and i won't be. lo he said there would be debate and he lied. he couldn't produce a budget. he pushed through an omnibus spending bill. we'll see that process repeat itself in three months. this is such a fraud and such a sellout. how can the conference of republicans tolerate his presence in the speaker's
7:21 pm
office. ed: it's beyond me. once he made the decision not to be speaker, i think he gives the up. no one is entitled to be speaker and setting an agenda. there are a lot of good republicans who want to set an agenda. lou: he wants 70 years as a retirement age for social security. he wants to cut entitlements. he wants this program called a better way which is a bunch of mediocre dribble. this speaker has not had an original idea in his entire life. and he's sitting will leading the conference. ed: the people who want social security. they want to continue. they want to strengthen it. they don't want it altered. the entitlement programs are not
7:22 pm
welfare programs. lou: "saving private ryan" ohsp. the democrats will have a fieldday. i think there are at least 60 or 70. they wrap around president trump's agenda. two have years of great leadership, they won't do well. lou: what do you think that the president is on board with both of these bills ryan will put up for a vote. they are amnesty bills next week. ed: i think it's outrageous the president does that. he has been misled b his staff. no one has seen these bills. i think if the president signs on web's been mislead by his own
7:23 pm
team it's not what he ran on and stood for in the campaign. lou: the great enemy in this country is fake news. but there is so much of it surrounding the white house, we don't know if he'll promise a veto to promised support of a disastrous piece of legislation. ed: anything drafted in the speaker's office behind closed doors won't be a good bill. lou: what is it "the washington post" says, democracy dies in darkness. capitol hill could use some illumination. ed rollins, thanks so much. appreciate it. be sure to vote in our poll. do you believe it's imperative for the rino leadership to get out of the way so the republican

7:28 pm
with expedia you could book a flight, hotel, car and activity all in one place. ♪ lou: well, mia attorney general jeff sessions showing his loyalty to the deep state over president trump, allowing deputy rod rosenstein to stall w congressional document requests and intimidate members of congress who dare to challenge him. sessions denied reports that rosenstein threatened members of the house intel committee and their staff with subpoenas over
7:29 pm
a closed door meeting over document requests that have been stole walled since january. >> i'm confident that deputy rosenstein, 28 years in the department of justice, did not improperly threaten anyone on that occasion. since january a great deal of progress has been made. we understand in this deptment that we are accountable to the president, we are accountable to congre. and we need to be cooperative with them. lou: well, that's really an interesting statement, isn't it? charlie hurt, washington times opinion editor. great to see you. >> great to see you, lou. lou: welcome to the big studio. >> good to be here. lou: let's turn to the statement by the attorney general. accountable to the president, really? and defending rosenstein who absolutely, according to the testimony of two staffers, threatened him. i mean, this thing is gettinged
7:30 pm
the lies are not remotely credible. >> they don'tven line up. and if you look at the statement that doj official to fox news about -- in response to these accusations, they denied that he threatened them. but the denial actually reinforced that in fact he did threaten them. and not only did he threaten them with subpoenas for their texts and e-mails and messages,t yesterday, they went further and said in fact rod rosenstein hopes they're still complying with the retention of documents. lou: on its face is absolutely lud crowludicrous because they'd the request of house over sight, house intelligence committee and house you dish rare committee, it's approaching nine months. >> and of course t doj has absolutely no authority whatsoever to make such a
7:31 pm
request of members of congress. rod rosenstein has never been elected to anything and he's thumbing his nose at the president, he's thumbing his nose a these members of congress who have an absolute responsibility to oversee what lou: and i g say only missing in action, this attorney general is missing the point of so many issues, to defend stonewalling and then call it transparency, as he attempted to do there. there is something tearily, terribly wrong with jeff sessions. and there needs to be an intervention. it's desperately required for the good of the nation. i don't know what in the world has happened to the man. >> yeah. it's hard to figure that out. but i can only assume that he feels like, you know, a little bit like a baseball manager who has to go out there and stick up for his guy. because it is, as you say,
7:32 pm
indefensible. i hope congress goes ahead with contempt of congress charges against rod rosenstein. lou: they haven't got the guts. >> they better find the guts. and i would go farther to say they ought to impeach the guy. lou: they haven't got to guts. >> maybe you should run for congress. you would do it. lou: there's no telling what i would do. because i couldn't tolerate being associated with people who haven't got the guts to stand up for the country. and that's exactly what we're watch in the republican congress when they permit a fraud and a shameless fraud like paul ryan to lead the conference into disaster, i just can't even conceive of what is motivating them. can you in. >> no, i really can't. except that i do think that, you know, they get lulled into this idea that the status quo is the way things happen and they're all terrified of the next election. they're teared fied of actually fixing things and making things happen and it's why w in the
7:33 pm
disaster that we're in. lou: think about an 18-year-old man or woman in this country watching what is happening. they look at the justice department and see nothing but corruption. they look at their congress and it doe much matter which party and you look at wowards as who flock together to a leader who would teach them something other than their own anate orthodoxy. this is not a washington that is filled with role models, except at 1 pennsylvania avenue. >> no. it's almost a paralysis of leadership, i think, throughout washington and in congress. and if i were to criticize donald trump for anything, it would be that he's not even more outraged. he's not making more outrageous demantsdz. he has the power. he has the authority to shut down entire departments if he wanted to. lou: i would rather he open them up. i would rather he make good on
7:34 pm
his promise of transparency. and i would hope i if he doesn't fire rosenstein and sessions, give them a direct order. turn the documents to the oversight committees, do it forth with without excuse and delay so help you god. >> short of that congress absolutely should step in there and i think theyught tosedemand. impeach rosenstein. lou: i will take unfortunately the ender on that. i don't think they've got the guts. if. >> you're probably right. lou: they won't even speak with courage alone act with it. i hope i'm wrong and i certainly hope you're right, as you often, often and frequently and regularly are. >> rarely. lou: charles hurt, blushing at the flattery. up nex a huge win for state primary candidates who support president trump and his america first agenda and one o the winners congressional
7:35 pm
candidate in south carolina, katie hearington. she sent a never trumper down in flames. we'll be talking with katety arrington here next. we'll be right back.
7:36 pm
7:37 pm
7:38 pm
lou: republicans building considerable momentum heading into the midterm elections, embracing president trump, the trump agenda. last night katie arrington secured more than 50% of the vote in south carolina's house
7:39 pm
of representatives primary defeating never trumper incumbent open off-time problem for the president, mark sanford. president trump tweeted his support for arrington hours before the polls closed last night. and earlier today the president congratulated her tweeting this, my political representatives didn't want me to get involved in the mark sanford primary, thinking that anford would easily win. but with a few hours left, i felt katie was a good candidate and sanford was so bad i had to give it a shot. congrats to katie arrington. joining us tonight with her fresh win and party nomination, south carolina congressional candidate, katie arrington. congratulations. >> thank you. lou: the president being candid and always and straightfrd. his political gurus didn't want et involved. he said he's got to. and aren't you glad. >> i definitely appreciate the
7:40 pm
president taking the time to tweet him being a busy man. look at what he's done the past few days. it's amazing. lou: one exciting things about having the president in the oval office. he doesn't pretend to do one thing at a time. this is a man who multitasks. he's smart. filled with energy. nobody is a close second. and he gets more done in a day than any other president i've been aware of over the course of my life. and you endorse his agenda and do you think that made the difference in the race against sanford? >> well, i think that this race, you know, people want a change, no doubt. and knocking on thousands of doors, i mean this campaign was a lot of hard work. it was months and months and months of grass roots efforts knocking on doors. but the first question anybody seemed to ask whenever we went to the door is do you support or
7:41 pm
president or do you not. and universally it was, we are supportive of president trump's bold conservative agenda. and having somebody in washington who has the backbone to stand wit president was something that people in south carolina wanted. lou: i think that'sbsoluty true. and i think -- and so you, you made it clear to your district, your voters that you're going to support the trump agenda, made it clearly and unequivocally. >> chris call crystal clear. lou: what would your counsel to other candidates run whog are going to be up for election, who are up for election. 40 republicans have already resigned from the house and, by the way, in most cases i would say good riddance. they really should be running as democrats and serving but they didn't have the guts. >> we are at war. when you look at this, it is a war to ensure that our
7:42 pm
maintained.e agenda is we have to have the backbone to stand up for what we stump out on the campaigns and say. we have to commend president trump. promises made promises kept. most of the people that ran in 2016 came with the agenda. they understood that the border wall was important and needed to be built. that they understood that we needed to repeal and replace obamobamacare. and where were they? we need to have people in washington who are not career politicians, who are there to get the job done. time is of the essence. and let's look at president anir isnd wha. exactly right. he gets more done in a day than most people get done in two weeks. we have to have that result out of congress. it's necessary. our days are precious on this earth and we need to make the most of them every single day. lou: i couldn't agree with you more. and to think, to think that the speakership right now is in the
7:43 pm
hands of a man who's done nothing. he's passed three bills in his entire career, 20 years in congress and yet he ends up speaker. he is a representative and a pure bought and paid for representative of k street, lobbyists, the business round table, the chamber of commerce, the koch brothers, just to name a few, if i may. it's a sad sad thing. and for youunning for congress, it's got to be at least partially, i would think, disappointing to you. >> it is. i we go in and -- our founding fathers, you know, wrote the constitution on the trins. principle of citizen legislatures 's about having the people -- what president trump brought back to us is we the people. and congress has been dragging their feet on that. seryou're sn cycle, this primary cycle, we want that. that's what we're craving.
7:44 pm
that's why we elected president trump. we wanted a businessman, we didn't want a politician. we wanted somebody who was going to make a promise and knew how to follow up and keep it. what you're seeing right now is th in the electorate that the to people that are out there, we want that. we're cravi it. lou: promises made, promises kept. katie arrington, congratulations on your win and all of the very best of luck. >> thank you so much. i hope to talk to you soon. lou: look guard to it. th up next, a radical plan to convert the land of left wing loons into three states. report on crazy california, got to love that left coast. straight ahead. you're turning onto the street when you barely clip a passing car. minor accident-no big deal, right? wrong. your insurance company is gonna raise your rate after the other car got a scratch so small you coulda fixed it with a pen.

7:48 pm
lou: california is no stranger to political lunacy and a controversial new ballot measure proves that point once again. voter wills get a chance in november to decide whether the state is so good it should be split up into three. fox news senior correspondent adam housely in clirve california with our report. >> so imagine that, the country's most populous state, the third largest in size, fifth largest economy in the world being spliced up into three could start the process this
7:49 pm
mall. the voters going to the polls to decide whether california needs to be three. first there would be california, which is basically los angeles wob ventura, second would be southern california, central cafornia and southern california from fresno down to san diego, and then third would be northern california, which would be the bay area, sacramento now of course where the current capital is, wine country to the border of oregon. the voters gets to decide this. tim draper says they've got more than 6,000 signatures, more than enough to qualify for the november ballot. why three states? the main argument has been that l.a. and the bay area forgot about the rest of california and that dividing the state, assets and liabilities among three states making decisions about taxes and spending more beneficial. now supporters say citizens would be better served by all of this, three smaller state
7:50 pm
governments while opponents say that the plan would create chaos. the initiative does say, quote, divides california into three states, subject to the approval of congress. assigns each county to a new state, directs governor to request that congress grants approval within 12 months. getting congress to pass this is most likely tha won't happen. also keep many mind, california has tried to separate before, at least there was talk of ait few years ago, talk of making california six states. and there ice an ongoing movement in the northern part of california to create the state of jefferson. lou? lou: california. amazing. three versions. my goodness. up next, outgoing rhino republic senator bob corker says the republican party has become cult-like in its support of president trump. corker, wel you remember him. he is a never-trumper, never very original and sort of sad
7:51 pm
kind of fella. we'll be talking about his outrageous comments with f arkansas governor mike huckabee and current television star mike huckabee joining me after the break. stay with us. we'll be right back.
7:52 pm
7:53 pm
7:54 pm
lou: joining me now, former arkansas governor, presidential candidate, mike huckabee. great to have you with us, m let's start with the president's
7:55 pm
extraordinary success at the sick posingapore summit and thet fun it is to watchhe national left wing media contort itself to avoid saying the obvious, which is what an amazing, extraordinary, historic moment for this president and the country. >> wasn extraordinary and historic moment. and of course it's fair to say we don't know what the long-term result will be. will kim jong-un keep the agreement. here's the difference. if he doesn't, donald trump is not barack obama nor is he george w. bush or bill clinton. and fe he thinkshe response of jim mattis, john bolton, mike pompeo and donald trump is going to be one of oh, you didn't keep the bar well, fine. no problems. i think kim jong-un has the clear understanding that when donald trump says that fire and fury will beult of a continued nuclear program, i think he totally understands that president trump is not joking about it.
7:56 pm
lou: one cannot imagine mike pompeo, for example, being dispatched by the president to ll kim jong-un if he were to violate this deal, the basic agreement, i'msohn kerry said to the ayatollahs when they took our service members prisoner in the persian gulf. i'm sorry. you know, it's still one great nonsectors of diplomacy. >> president trump won't be taylor over to strum "you've got a friend." lou: i like the way you think. i love that. the midterm electns, the trump effect is working. it's straightforward but apparently paul ryan, mitch mcconnell, the republican party, at least they're represented by the leadership on capitol hill don't get it.
7:57 pm
