  1. The Swearing-In of Marcus Richard Walker as Vice President of the United States PPT Chuck Grassley gavels the Senate into order. Grassley: The Senate will come to order. The prayer will be offered by Chaplain Black. Black: Almighty God, Father of all mercies, we thine unworthy servants do give thee most humble and hearty thanks for all thy goodness and loving-kindness to us and to all men. We bless thee for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life; but above all for thine inestimable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ; for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory. And, we beseech thee, give us that due sense of all thy mercies, that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful; and that we show forth thy praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives, by giving up our selves to thy service, and by walking before thee in holiness and righteousness all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and the Holy Spirit, be all honor and glory, world without end. Amen. Grassley: The first order on the agenda is the swearing-in of Marcus Richard Walker as Vice President of the United States. The Chair welcomes The Honorable Justice Keith Blackwell to perform the oath and The Chair asks that the Vice President-designate be escorted into the chambers. Blackwell enters from a side door. Walker and his wife, Caroline, are escorted from the main door by Governor Steve Austria, Senator Rob Portman, Senator Jim Renacci, and Senator Gary Peters. Blackwell: Please repeat after me. I, Marcus Richard Walker, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God. Walker: I, Marcus Richard Walker, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God. Blackwell: Congratulations, Mr. Vice President. Grassley hands Walker the gavel. Walker bangs the gavel and begins to speak. Walker: Thank you, Justice Blackwell, Senator Grassley, Governor Austria, friends and colleagues in the U.S. Senate, and of course, my lovely wife Caroline. I look forward to working alongside President Fitzgerald in the coming months and years to bring prosperity to all Americans. I also look forward to getting to know you all or getting to know you better in these next few weeks - I am excited for our work together. With that said, the next item of business on the calendar is Morning Business. The Chair recognizes the Senate Majority Leader. Senator McConnell?

    Vice Presidential Nomination

    From Anita Davis: 1) Governor Walker, if the 25th Amendment is invoked during your tenure, will you follow the Macmillan/Fitzgerald Doctrines or will you separate yourself from their stances and take on your own? Why would you keep the Doctrines of Macmillan/Fitzgerald or Why would you ignore them for your own doctrine stance? I always follow the beat of my own drummer, especially in foreign policy. And I would do that because I have a PhD in American Diplomatic History. I believe in the role of relationships and bridge-building in modern foreign policy. I have been at this for almost 20 years. I'm not changing. 2) Governor Walker, what do you believe should be done to help impoverished communities and inner cities across the country? I believe we need to work to improve education and social services and I believe the best way to do that is to empower states to do that on a state-by-state basis. 3) Governor Walker, do you believe that every American should have the right to affordable health care? If so, how should our nation go about accomplishing that? I currently believe we should give the new system a chance - it hasn't even been enacted yet. From Karl Cox: 1) Governor Walker, do you believe the Alt-Right is a hate group and that it is appropriate for the government to condemn them as such? The problem with outlawing the "Alt-Right" is that it's not really one group. We should condemn groups that fit descriptions of the sectors of the "Alt-Right" like Anti-Semites and White Supremacists but condemning the "Alt-Right" like in the bill currently before Congress allows for what is too broad of an interpretation. 2) Governor Walker, what will you recommend the president do about climate change? Why? I believe in climate change and I recommend that the President and Congress take action during this Congress to stop it.

    Vice Presidential Nomination

    From Isabella Valentina: 1) Governor Walker, do you support a withdraw from Afghanistan? Why or why not? I oppose it for the reasons the President has stated. 2) Governor Walker, do you support more or less funding for public schools? Why or why not? There should be more funding, but on the local level. However, I would support working to award federal grants to high-potential low-income school districts. 3) Governor Walker, what are you willing to do or recommend to the President that will help women, minorities, and LGBT members have equal opportunities in this country? As you know, Representative, I can't do much as that's the VP's job. But I know that the President agrees with me in the belief that our job is to love our neighbor, as our Lord Jesus Christ has commanded. From Mark Rambor: 1) Governor Walker, do you support campaign finance reform and lessening corporate influence on our government? I support draining the swamp, yes. 2) Governor Walker, do you support greater consumer financial protections to prevent another financial crisis, such as Dodd-Frank, which was mostly repealed last session? Why or why not? It's very clear that regulation is a drain to good hard-working American companies. I support what Congress and the President have done.
  5. During a press comment time held at the Naval Observatory, Walker discussed the recent subpoenas of DNC Chair Evelyn Vanderfleet and HmL Calvin Ward as well as campaign staffers from both of their campaigns. "Look, you know, it's about ethical and moral leadership here. I'm not expecting anyone to be a saint in this town - no one is. Let me tell you what I told my students in my seminar class on American Diplomatic History for thirteen years - before you can make a full analysis, you need to look at the ethics of the situation. What's the ethical path in the situation? In this situation, the only ethical path was to not attempt to transfer $50 million to Rev. Marshall. And yet, out of their deep desire to win, Vanderfleet and Ward have potentially violated federal law, but even if they are found not to be guilty, we still have learned that the Democratic Party will do pretty much anything to win an election. It's clear that a vote for the Republican Party is the only way to ensure that Vanderfleet and Ward don't snatch power like they want."

    @CalvinRamshaw: Don't trust the DNC when they say they "stand above partisan politics." This is just another example of how low they will go to gain power.

Trade and Diplomatic Relations, 2003 If I Could Do It..., 2015 Known by some as "the most punchable face in politics," Governor Marcus Walker is finishing his second term as Governor of Ohio, where he has presided over a rebirth of the state out of the fire of the Great Recession. Prior to his time as Governor, he served a term each in the Senate and House where he made a name for himself as one of the leading Republican counterpoints to George W Bush's foreign policy. A historian who focuses on American diplomatic history, Walker has primarily focused on the topics of trade and foreign aid as aids to getting soft power and influence. His book If I Could Do It..., while not a critical success (it was meant to be a barometer for a potential Presidential campaign), focused on his story as the son of two working-class parents and as the first person in his family to attend college. As his term as Governor ends in January 2019, he's looking for his next opportunity.
