This Tuesday at Georgetown University.
I'll lay out my vision prepare our country for the impacts our -- Global efforts to fight there's no single step that can reverse the effects of climate change.
When it comes to the world we leave our children we owe it to them to do what we care.
It was -- the instructional video for a new device that you may have bought from day Asian manufacturer.
That was public service announcement from President Obama.
His speech that he's going to deliver today at Georgetown University.
A back out what he wants to do about climate change and this is power play and -- videos and -- Good to have you here as we get ready for president Obama's remarks in which he will call for a second round of crack down on the coal fired electricity industry.
Which is still the largest.
Provider of elect of electoral in the United States it's a pretty big deal and the president's gonna hit him pretty hard today so we'll talk about that.
We will talk about with one Scott Brown former senator from Massachusetts.
About the Massachusetts an election that's taking place today we will do that we will talk about the the leftovers the aftermath of the immigration debate.
In the senate as they get ready for the next phase is they had final passage and then ultimately what really counts -- the battle in the house.
And we'll also talk about why shirtless Vladimir Putin who always shirtless.
Doesn't much care what President Obama has to say about Edwards and it will be good you'll like all of it.
I promise -- like oh well at least a crucial at this hour.
You know and like already Matthew McConaughey is the editor in chief of the Washington -- -- -- is follow oval on the twitters act on that any.
Well thank you so the New York Times they had a story.
That basically was segment president's initiative on global warming real vote on is there's -- we change.
And in as -- aside.
In -- -- -- -- -- light and funny thing there's been no warming for fifteen years.
And it was sort of like -- head scratch -- moment.
That you would we we have disrupted so much we have changed so much of the way America works and operates.
To make -- like basically the net effect -- you make electricity more expensive you localized destruction in places like on west.
Where you the coal industry takes it that everybody's our bills go up it's there it's there we've done a lot in the name of global warming if there's no warming.
That's a question that you won't hear the president to dress in his speech today at Georgetown university -- -- -- talk about tornadoes he'll talk about extreme weather events even -- many scientists that you can't connect any particular piece of whether to.
Global warming which as you say it's been on hold for fifteen years even as global carbon has increased through to record amass huge -- huge so.
You know correlations not causation but if you're a skeptic or something or scientist to -- you say well what is actually going on -- -- we don't know as much as we think we know especially to.
-- that is very ambitious initiatives to change the way that America distributes its energy and my reaction to these policies -- you know say hello to senator -- so.
Right so it more capital round probably let's replace -- let's Phillips Virginia let's let's be clear now a lot of chance of any Democrat winning in West Virginia federal level anyway this year but it could certainly have -- races like marked cars down in Arkansas.
Mary Landrieu in Louisiana mark baggage up in Alaska right there are a lot of those Democrat.
But there is that there's this -- So the president held and we remember what he said.
Back in he was campaigning against Hillary Clinton organ in May of 2008 and he said we can't drive our suvs.
And it is much as we want and keep our homes -- 72 degrees all the time.
And then just expect that other countries are gonna say OK that's not leadership that's not going to happen the president has long held.
That the United States needs to be the -- that we need to lead by example on reducing carbon.
Well guess what we did last year we had -- we had a greater decrease in our carbon emissions than any other industrialized country.
We dropped our cold usage by some 12% a huge decrease in this category -- when asked.
The rest of the world sucked up all of that and -- You can you can -- an example right isn't that rhetoric that you just said Chris saying that -- uses he talks about nuclear proliferation.
Right he's always and we have to cut down our missile supplied between samples of the world.
-- meanwhile China is building up its nukes.
Iran of course it's continued its nuclear program North Korea hasn't done anything to disarm it's the same thing this whole idea that you can somehow set an example.
And thereby convince the world to change what they see is to -- -- interest is completely ludicrous.
And you bet that we we look at I think -- right if Obama were serious about reducing carbon emissions he would go and I'm like.
Instead arms control you have carbon control ranking below launching initiatives with India and China are we gonna cut down on their car and listening and you're not gonna do it is that they want to reach.
A higher standard of living and they know that energy productions the way to do this people do love I -- -- -- I just say this at all.
This whole exercise -- completely meaningless to me this is not on the forefront of americans' concerns Americans are concerned about jobs are concerned about the cost of living this -- do nothing for either one of those things.
Meanwhile he's giving a speech and then tomorrow and hats off to Africa for a week where the and that's gonna totally -- assume everything that he says this is simply -- possible.
You know tossing red meat to the billionaires who fund his party can profit from alternative energy investments and should make Americans very angry they do.
And and the other as Von Beasley.
Who follows me wisely follows him on Twitter and -- -- -- -- column rolled it -- words Obama Cold War.
It says this on Twitter they ignore Obama altogether except when they're taking money and laugh at his foolishness.
That has been the trend is the president in recent days Edwards didn't back or whatever else he said art I'm fine getting the -- Putin's of the world to do anything.
-- -- So we'll see we'll see what happens Matthews around from the delegates at the Massachusetts special election to -- OK but could there be any better expert let's get the break.
Let's just blow right through this break what do you say.
And go right to without delay.
Former United States senator it seems so recently that he was current United States editor Scott Brown.
Who joins us via Skype.
Senator how we -- it.
I'm doing pretty well so did listen and beyond and I appreciate the opportunity.
Yeah absolutely were thrilled to have you here.
So here's the question and we had some cool video of life of a lightning strike.
Now that now we don't get to -- but.
-- you're election in Massachusetts and overwhelmingly democratic state was a lightning strike.
It changed the trajectory of things in a big way in the country it was it was a -- -- moment.
-- Gabriel Gomez who is did.
-- this is his first run.
For political office is hoping that he can do the same thing again today.
And defeat Ed Markey long long time congressman from Massachusetts can that happen.
Look at everything possible obviously it's 801 tonight polls will be closed and it's really is all about getting out the vote I know for a fact that the Democrats are very nervous.
There actually literally going door to door identifying people -- -- and dragging them I was saying get out and vote.
Because it is projected to be a very low turnout probably five or 600000.
Less than my special election we at a very high turnout is you know.
Looking back when I was elected it was obviously a perfect storm many different things happening.
And they would like with the Democrats would like to thank god you know we -- them -- god know we gave an old fashioned.
Oppression and obviously this time because -- don't -- the presidential election it was a different dynamically add borders did that hadn't had -- No hardly ever come out came up with and -- was an amazing I can't kill -- -- with the president when Romney lost like 23 million of them losing.
-- a little over seven.
It was a -- -- it's hot it's 96.
Project that you just said the bruins' locker as last night unfortunately he's -- bloody -- while you have a whole lot of factors the Boston bombing would have gone into effect -- -- -- -- the actual election itself.
So I know the government campaign has been focusing on getting out the vote should identifying reported that came out for me in the book collection and trying to get them out full -- Well now in terms of the campaign that government run.
He has worked very hard -- to try to replicate some areas of your success one was to talk about the entrenched Washington.
Vs outside voice and independence.
Which it has been a good message for him something he came to belatedly.
Which work for you when you were running against Martha Coakley.
Was this to say look it's not forever this is just a partial term -- basically saying give me eighteen months if you don't like it after eighteen months you can have a different senator.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That a deficit taxes pending job national security energy within that you're tired -- -- -- those I think trump just say give me a chance.
A lot of different guys different strategy -- strategic team.
Okay what's effective -- Marty go to form an encouraging others to -- -- vote for him because.
When you open up the dictionary and say you know Washington insider in the picture that marquee there at guy's been there -- -- who has.
-- I was around when you track we're in -- And they you never -- areas here.
Legitimate addresses and Chevy Chase Maryland summer I'll have a third senator will have one -- and with that doesn't have any experience in Massachusetts is going to stop us.
So I voted for Obama -- -- you know self made.
Guy who's served our country would distinction.
And my motto around here with a lot of folks of anybody but marquis.
I'm now at -- thank senator win we get down to the future.
Of the Republican Party in Massachusetts this election you know there was there were big hoax but given governor Romney's performance in his home state.
And if if if mr.
Gomez doesn't prevail today they're going to be a lot of people they're going to be writing off Massachusetts Republicans.
-- assembly where 11% involvement in the problem without party is repayment.
Party the national nationally.
I was up in Vermont speaking I'm going to on the North Carolina are again I'm going to be all over the country.
We masters and we have 11% you've got good people -- in the fiscal -- social conservatives.
Moderates and liberals and we're fighting amongst yourselves.
Fighting -- really scraps especially in Massachusetts.
And things that the Democrats will take advantage -- divide and conquer and fluid momentum we have or any legitimacy and we haven't being tested.
So we have to find a way to be a bigger -- have more respectful partly because there was room for everybody who has different types of beliefs.
With Papa my my fiscal conservative yes in my mind national security credentials are up against anybody in the country.
But on the social moderate on -- to keep an open mind as well they're good people on both sides of almost every issue.
But yeah I mean that I'm not I didn't pass just like ideological litmus test this you know that this purity test of being a Republican what what -- that but most of pathetic band because you know I've been Republicans have been -- eighteen years old and probably from the Party of Lincoln.
So you know others that I think that they had left the corner on what it's like to be -- Republican that's something we need to work on.
So what we're looking we have during presidential years and very very tough from that nothing I would change and it comes down to you know when I want I want almost 7% of those.
Food and ultimately lost even having sixty plus percent approval rating and spending 42 million dollars.
You know it was it was obviously different -- special election and not pure election we have about 25% lower voter turnout.
If you have a couple and 25 communities and -- you would you have.
And override the deals with taxation issues ritual -- -- I think the voters in our favor a little bit more than usual.
So I think he would just say it's kind of unusual it is done -- my first time in.
Looking at not being involved in election but thank -- for being there from the outside working for fox obviously kind of analyzing what's up and I think it's going to be single digits will be surprised that -- -- it's not not -- All right Scott Brown -- road a red pickup truck into the history books we thank you senator for making some time for us today.
Well it is an honor.
And I encourage everybody to get involved -- all of you support a candidate who want to reach me on Twitter.
That's Scott brown and -- and Chile FaceBook look good to be there as well thank you.
You bet you bet thank senator.
All right -- -- Matthew.
The so the deal is Gabriel Gomez for a minute.
Look like it might happen.
And actually break and we just show that lightning strike video just because I don't want to waste it.
That's right that's that's cool and now listen AC DC but when you have lightning video you don't want to just ways that.
But -- the the question it is.
For Republicans did they get lured into the briar patch on this one having seen what happened with Scott Brown before Gomez he's Hispanic.
He substantially self funded he's -- -- -- It's Massachusetts -- had so much her behavior and it took me.
Yeah so you're absolutely right they wanted -- so much you felt they -- they needed they wanted to add a third Republican to the senate Republican senatorial Hispanic caucus.
And it doesn't -- it's worked so Scott Brown as the Kennedy Republican.
In fact when it is big and December I'll talk without body fat -- John F.
Kennedy making the case for tax cuts it was.
It ten inches is too strong a word but it was it was not at the full.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Obamacare the -- make me the 41 vote he said when he ran.
He told the people of Massachusetts elect me I would in Washington vote against president's -- and people of Massachusetts who by the way have their own state.
An effort you may have heard of it it was something -- governor today and it's see it was well care of him.
-- Romney can.
They had during healthily and they said we don't want and so they elected brown and he went down.
Is it is a good candy looks like he's been a good candidate marquis is pretty bad candidate.
But you can't beat the math in Massachusetts.
Well I just disagree with you Chris and dumb SS and Medicare.
-- doesn't happen issues I don't know why he's running in fact all the issues he brings up is to say Iowa I agree with the Democrats.
You need to that you need to create division in politics that's how you win you need to show all on different from the other guys guys hasn't done that you know he's been attacking the Republican Party.
Call Trent franks the author of -- abortion restrictions.
Moron he said that Republicans aren't they have no idea what they're doing.
Scott -- and didn't -- that moreover Scott Brown was in touch with the people he drove that red pickup truck let's go Gabriel Gomez driving some -- but with this press.
-- for all all this guy.
All over Scott -- Stuart Gabriel office in Atlanta this.
Down Internet do this -- was just -- it limits the Romney Republican candidate in this.
Whom this -- this if you would like to hear him go off more you should be following -- you be -- -- you be following it that it.
And you should stay and we thank you bring this.
For a separate -- up more smack is to be laid out in the moments to com.
As -- -- while mark and we'll talk about immigration Edwards etc.
it's better to have your very favorites.
Very favorites and he ran Blackman and David Mercer will be here we would -- that.
This is just like obamacare they're trying to buy votes one at a time but let me tell you one of the most troubling aspects of -- -- a lot of people don't understand.
The impact of this bill effectively creates de facto affirmative action for those who are here illegally.
Because illegal immigrants when they get this RPI status are exempted from obamacare.
Was Ted Cruz he's the junior senator from Texas -- Republican if you hadn't noticed.
And this is power play and welcome back.
You heard there that was on Hannity Sean Hannity which you heard there from senator cruise is one of a growing list of complaints.
The legislation is now lumbering forward in the United States and it they did a hurry up.
Vote in the senate to get to a procedural hurdle on an amendment that basically clears the way for final passage.
But this thing now has to sit on the shelf through the August recess most likely.
While house gets ready to answer back and as the volley continues the chances of actual passage of legislation this year.
And passage of actual legislation ever there for our.
-- in the next two cycles are raw and because next year's election year and guess what people -- went -- It.
What about that what about senator -- Obama here loophole and other complaints about this legislation as it hangs out.
He's a former senior advisor to President Obama he has.
The hope not to go through every bush and George W.
Bush George W.
Bush -- it three times.
Bradley and it did that he's probable that.
-- -- -- And he's a professor at Georgetown University where President Obama went probably because of -- silently pro or anything right exactly -- here but here.
The president -- will be giving his speech.
-- global warming -- not warming were.
David Mercer he is that.
He is democratic strategist he is a former deputy national finance director for the Democratic National Committee.
He is probable that the super -- handle of beltway.
Let's start with and so for Democrats once starts to get the sense that they.
Are pretty happy about how this is old term -- Which is there's -- to be a vote they've already got Republicans get 6767.
Votes which means that while Republicans is that right.
They got it at a dozen Republicans to stick their neck on this thing.
And now it's going to be an -- -- today.
Ted Cruz and others are out.
They hate this legislation they say it's full -- loopholes were sweeteners -- problems.
And so now it now it's going to be -- -- what Republicans take the heat right.
Believe it they'll find any excuse to take -- of the world.
To challenge immigration.
On the first we're talking about.
The budget on but we found out from CBO our Congressional Budget Office that a 197.
Billion dollars nearly.
-- trillion dollars would be saved in immigration over the next ten years.
At the same time CB Florida the CB also said that they didn't really know what legislation they were scoring because it was -- change so much man.
On the second thing is that -- you mentioned border security as a problem that we have to close down our borders or.
Make -- more secure.
Before we move onto a path to citizenship.
That is been done and that's the vote that -- successive votes today on the border security.
Was was -- -- suit.
I think with as we get through these litany -- that list of objections.
On whether they be false or otherwise presented by crews that we will see the vote hopefully with seventy votes on the overall bill in the senate.
And then it all falls into -- his lap and whether or not he can corral the cats in his caucus or the caucuses gonna continue to control Boehner this.
Some of the ones that let English and you're not getting your generation like that anywhere else on the Internet corral the cats and it's our job given in the words of another senator Graham says -- In 2016 it won't matter who our presidential nominee is if we do not pass as a party immigration.
So I leave it in the words of Republican -- you speak to other Republicans.
That Boehner needs to really take this seriously enough that would happen with the farm bill happen with the immigration.
Let's say you.
Well but let's take the farm the farm bill the Republicans did the right thing he did standup thing because what does the farm bill that reform bill.
-- 80% of it goes to food stamps so the Republicans were principle which they -- now let's take immigration.
Immigration if it passes by seventy votes in congress and the senate remember the senate is where bills usually died.
There they're giving they're giving life to to be the issue that needs.
Solved in this country it's -- the house.
On the other hand they have to get their act together and if I were Boehner I go to my caucus and say this thing's gonna pass.
You know what we get to an eighteen votes -- -- you with me or you're not yet.
I'm so this legislation that not not a scripted but in conference this bill has to be -- hello.
Rule has to be -- with the senate 00.
It's and and you know the deal has to be made that's.
And is this the letters -- -- to be exhibit -- saying -- basically to that Boehner needs to.
Regular order to stand capsule and say we're gonna vote on whatever we want about the house at a vote on whatever the house wants about it.
You want to build it is -- border security only.
Whatever it is that we need to -- -- immigration bill in the house Brad says Boehner should say and then send it to conference where it gets hashed out.
But the problem is there is minimal trust minimal trust currently.
With Jimmie there with the agreement -- -- in conference correct that they can count on the people who go in that.
That's -- -- -- it's -- question of the leadership.
And it -- the question of this -- it all comes down to simple adding and subtracting.
And if you can get to 218 votes in the house and -- your guys can help us do it.
And -- -- is necessary at at the expense of those who Republicans will not.
Let's get the best that we can at a conference let's get this done that you the American people that pac -- cars sports can't get something done we live in a divided government Republicans.
We have a democratic president.
We have -- house but we don't have a -- and obviously you'll have to find solutions to what problems we have no question about it so I am for a compromise.
That is tough on border security but yet is compassionate.
On have witnesses decision over time with restrictions and rules that -- -- last -- -- -- get passage.
I think rule I think the force it is -- -- -- passage.
I believe also the laws hopeful -- -- all right I do believe that it's it's certainly possible and if it and if the Republicans take the blame for that will be -- in 2014 -- Power plays eyebrow is raised venture.
There's one power play raised -- of the -- -- -- comes from -- -- they who says this.
That was an outrage referring.
-- segment on.
-- Gabriel Gomez that gets you just add -- that's the reason Republicans keep losing he should be ashamed of them sell them what's.
-- -- Don't mess with the Internet.
And guys thank you so.
Blizzard -- -- back to more Zimmerman coverage.
But before you get to that.
It's and now as we like to do every day.
We leave you with the work from -- -- sure.
It's the fact that people don't like state is not new.
-- -- is that these non allied -- have no respect for the United States.
