JOHN BACHMAN (HOST): Yes we did reach out to Senator Cruz's office for confirmation here on what the plan -- what this was all about. But the T.W., when you look at this, you know, we're gonna criticize Gavin Newsom for going to French Laundry. We're gonna criticize the mayor of Austin, Texas, for going down to Cabo San Lucas in the middle of pandemic. You know, and again, Ted Cruz, not exactly apples to apples here, but he could be out there, you know, helping out his constituents, right?
T.W. SHANNON (GUEST): Well, honestly John, I'm not so concerned about where Ted Cruz is traveling to. I mean, in this day and time we can communicate, we can get things done remotely. And perhaps, if things are as bad in Texas as I've heard, he may have a better opportunity to do it remotely. But the reality is this - there are people hurting in Texas right now. And part of the problem is the economic policy that's been promulgated by the Biden administration. You know, if we want more this Green New Deal, which is what this administration is really pushing, we're going to see a lot more what's happening in Texas around the country. So I think that's why it's important that conservatives and Republicans unite against this Green New Deal because if we don't, we're gonna see more of this ridiculous power outages from the wealthiest nation in the world with the most natural resources of any place in the world.
