I know some people have got these unbelievable restrictions that they are supposed to be abiding by. So to be a difficult time but it still time to give thanks and we give thanks to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The AC LJ is working on right now in the broadcast this week are to focus on some of the things we do with the ACLJ and sometimes you might rarely hear about, especially this last year we have impeachment and we had to let election and of course that election is kind of still going on is as we speak right now it's in. This is sometimes you don't get the same focus we brought in a lot of new new audience to because of our work on this separately from the ACLJ or Pres. Trump as his attorneys. There's a lot of people who are still learning about what the AC LJ really is all about from taking on early on the deep state from the days of the Obama administration and of course fighting back onto the Trump administration in preparing if necessary to fight back against the deep state under a Biden administration we launch a brand-new program for children. You know, that is, and it's great to get really catlike. Pre-k is my daughter's account pre-k eight she loves it all the way up to about like 10 years old or so educating them.

Postelection, so let me encourage you. I really want you to to listen to the shows watch these shows share these shows with your friends and family so that they learn about the ACLJ know this is a critical time for us. The Americans are for Law and Justice because it's the it's the end of our matching challenge month of November that ends November 30 and what a matching challenge month is why it's so important for the ACLJ is that we have a group of donors and a matching challenge month that then agreed before the month begins to match every individual donation that comes through the ACLJ.org so if you make a donation right now it ACLJ.org and you do it because you love the broadcast or you do it because you love the pro-life legal work we do with the government affairs work we do on Capitol Hill or the international work or you just love all of it and then the constitutional protections protect your constitutional rights that we do with the ACLJ in the courts around the country and of course protecting freedom around the world in defending freedom around the world.

But it's a great time for us because if you donate were prepared just for the battles were fighting right now for the battles were prepared to fight in 2021, and we are doing that as we speak right now, the American civil law and justice. Let me encourage you donate now it ACLJ.org be part of our matching challenge will be right back on Jay Sekulow the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

Whether it's defending religious freedom.

Protecting those who are persecuted for their faith. Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift dollars $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ the work we do. Simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms online ACLJ only one.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition like it will show you how you are personally pro-life publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the and what Obama care means to the pro-life in many ways your membership in the ACL is empowering the right to question a free copy of mission in life today online ACL data/Carrollton, Texas online one because I think it is important to point this out. People are actually calling of theirs were here sure right now. Vertebrae West with two is written about a piece about does the Bible he planned to enable the enemy we had be prepared for Joe by just present it right now.

Look at the electoral map does that mean that of course you know that were part of the tropical illegal team and that their efforts underway. Of course the integrity of the election makes the legal votes are counted. Illegal votes are counted. Maybe that will change.

Six.

Of course we spent a lot of time on that but now the Joe bites her to put out names. You better be prepared. Folks securely welcome to the broadcaster on the air about talking about join the fray because they know you from right there for 30 years. I know you might not understand both sides, more voice, no matter what happens. Thank you Carolyn for saving his ACLJ if you are a listers to come aboard because the Trump years involved with their inner continued involvement there. By the way, and I think regardless of how the election turns out we will still be involved with the present Trump incident in his capacity with whatever he chooses to do. If it doesn't turn out in his favor in the courts or the legislatures.

So what you all to know that that enjoyed a listing for the Trump row that we had to do probably still be part of that world. And so and we got a lot of legal work to redo it on behalf the President is it the stuff that's in the bigger the news that we do on behalf the presence out so know that, but the second part is what Carolyn said the ACLJ has existed since 1990 okay we are a constitutional law and government affairs organization where your voice to aid in the courts in Washington DC.

We represent clients at no cost. In fact, we've we've held assisted about 2000 family so far during covariate who needed assistance because of you this at home blurting but they were have students with. This may be learning disabilities or individual education plans or the or they had a situation where they did have that they could afford to cut Internet speeds they would need to do from at home blurting or the food delivery that was so important. You handled that at no cost for about 2000 families nationwide. We do that kind of work we represent cities and towns at no cost to represent individuals. We hit we have a long record at the US Supreme Court.

So our voice on matters of constitution and government affairs and foreign policy, with offices around the world. Of course, are our Europeans are flawed. Justice is recognized Geo at the United Nations so so we been doing this for decades from Republican administrations to Democrat administrations to getting the job done. That's what we do to protecting your rights with its administration wants to go after them to protecting religious liberty to protecting freedom of speech to protecting your your your your your your rights again and fighting, of course, for the life of the unborn.

After supper, but we got a kick in the entire by the Carolyn is right and what West Smith is a perfect example.

That was a joyous tallies policy expert with his former our current retired colonel US military and you wrote a piece was about what the Bible he may do to enable the enemy like Iran. Tell people about it is you start seeing these names like Jake Sullivan who was is is Joe bites pick if he becomes President to be national security advisor. This a guy who wrote was an architect of the Iran nuclear deal, which is been highly criticized estate said he was likely chosen for this position because you don't have to be confirmed exactly and the Joe Biden's tipping his hand with people like him like a Ms. Hochstein who really tipped his hand is worth the geopolitical plans for the Middle Eastern for ran going forward. If Joe Biden assumes office in January is going back to the days of the Obama Biden administration. Obama Biden 2.0 where are allies like Israel could not depend on us and our adversaries like North Korea and Iran did not fear or respect us in the most significant tipping of the hand. At this point, which came out last week is that Hochstein stated that in a Biden administration that they would do one of two things they would either immediately reenter the JC POA with around therein nuclear deal or what he referred to SJC PO A- where did this in it if I had not read it and read the statement it would be hard to believe, and that is they might go and lift all sanctions on her rent in exchange for a ran not getting rid of the violations of the nuclear deal they've done over the last three years, but simply stopping some of them in exchange for lifting sanctions and reaching out diplomatically around you know it is a threat not just to the region is a threat to the world and get in there coming in with this policy of reaching out. It is a throwback to remember when the Obama administration freed up billions of dollars in international assets from them delivered pallets of cash to rent in middle of the night. That simply enables terrorism.

So Hochstein is talking about either reentering it carte blanche or JC you JC PO A- where they actually live sanctions and a ran doesn't have to back off the progress they've made this simply have to stop a course in addition to that in the whole Middle East and the peace and progress. There is up in the air as well because Hochstein and others in the Biden team are now talking about going back in and putting the Palestinian issue at the heart of all diplomacy in the Middle East. There is a reason that the air of nations have been lining up with the Abraham accords and making normal relations with Israel and that is because they are tired of sitting on the sidelines and having their own national security threatened because they they can't solve the Palestinian issue there detaching the Arab nations are under the trust administration.

They've been detaching their safety and security and their economic interests in exchange for what is been for decades, placating Palestinian leaders who are involved in corruption and terrorism. All of this is elections do have consequences. These are frightful potential consequences Jordan under the Biden administration. It will impact negatively all the peace the progress this been made in the Middle East.

It will embolden and enable a ran if they go through this yesterday got some new names to announce as well so we talked about that that Tony Blake and Jake Sullivan, Linda Thomas Greenfield was removed from the State Department by the Trump administration is a swamp creature now being back brought back to potentially buy Biden is the US ambassador to the UA which is a can of Coke confirmed has to be confirmed and can be a cabinet position that that's up to the President of the United States taken that they can decide that we got some new names as well that Alejandra Alejandra Majorca's who was a deputy secretary of homeland security under Obama's negative Abby put forward as the Sec. of Homeland security Adm. Haynes was the deputy national security advisor is now to be put forward as director of national intelligence. These are all on Obama people the deputy and just a deputy director of the CIA, so I get it say and what I welcome her right back on Facebook were down for a little bit adult that was a political reason for that time, this time on Facebook. It was more of a tech issue but welcome back on Facebook share with your friends and family some more people seized, but it also seems to getting the Obama BT all the deputies there coming back down to get their job is the top-level position to be that's even more dangerous because they may not be household names like some of the Obama people became add the athlete.

They are the they were the ones who were writing the policy for those top-level Obama people. They were the architects of the ideals they want back in you and we were in a geopolitical mess we are in a military mess by the time the Biden Obama ministration ended going back to the JC POA which they want to reenter Jordan. People need to keep in mind that the JC POA did not forbid Iran from getting nuclear weapons is simply postponed it for about 10 years and during that interim time as we inspected them to make sure they're complying with this this farce of a nuclear deal. We could not inspect the military facilities which is the logical place they would do research and development on nuclear weapons. You go down the list of the things that are on the phone the face of them.

They seem a little insane, but the real serious bottom line is that they are a threat to national security and to all the things we do in the future, not only for peace in the region of the Middle East in our Arab allies but for us as well make sure my seizure piece to us so it's it's up and Facebook and it was so stay with us to the next segment broadcast will take your phone calls 100-684-3110 list. If you have some question about the legal challenges you can ask him but again we want to be as accurate as possible, as representatives of the present in our other role and and I will tell you is I told other news outlets today that if I can't be hundred percent accurate right now. Not to say something that is that is potential or what I think is going to happen.

I want to be accurate. I think with that link the states now everything we say these to be hundred percent accurate and there is some kind of turmoil over the weekend and that you saw use either the newest.

I know you've all seen and I don't want to really get into it or pick sides of that because that is not what we do, we'll represent the Trump campaign in their outside role or outside role represent the present, in his individual capacity present from his individual capacity will continue to do that as an inner outside role. I want all those new listeners. They seal Jake in our broadcast Jay Sekulow to understand that as well. I like a Carolyn from Texas, said but I get check out Wes's blog.

Make sure social unity was make sure it gets tweeted out for our social media cancer, put up again on her Facebook account. Is it does the Biden team plan to enable the enemy is very straightforward, support the work of the ACLJ.

This is a critical time to do it. We got all these experts always people ready to go work to be ready to go on day one of whoever's administration. It is folks only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later, planned parenthood's role in the end what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right question for mission life today online ACLJ/the American Center for logistics were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those faith uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress.

ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift dollar gift becomes 100.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ.

The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms online ACLJ Facebook and YouTube doubt it. Welcome those kind of new people are interacting on YouTube. I think that's great parlor in places like periscope and twitter and of course the thousand plus radio stations run each day and I Sirius XM 228. Make sure you understand part of your support for the ACLJ financial support ACLJ goes to this broadcast that wish I could turn the cameras around and show you the whole team that is here right now but I mean you know that there's there's 10 people in the control of this people taking your calls is people making sure that this goes up live in the videos going apply as our producers put the content together as people make sure this is going out audio wise in the right everything is working correctly. We the team is there.

Then of course we will hold social media team that cuts up the show for you after you get little pieces of it to share on social media little chunks of it as well were below people debris in the guest people that make sure we got the right connection to Washington DC and everything is working all of that is is because of your support for the ACLJ now the core support goes to those we go to our legal work.

That's a secondary bear government affairs work in our international work, but that it also this broadcast every single day bringing you all this information, it's because of your financial support of the barracks are flawed justice of this a great month to financially support the ACLJ because the matching challenge month which means whatever you donate to the ACLJ is effectively doubled because we have a group of donors and say will match all of the donations that came through in the month of November but it's up to you to see how big that matches because you are the one you are the reason why they batch a donation you have to make that initial donation. Do it today. ACLJ.org even if really wanted that your topic that topped the things you like about us is that the Jay Sekulow live radio broadcast and television broadcast, that's a great reason support it because it's on the air because of your financial support of the ACLJ donate today@aclj.org fan you brought up something interesting in what he batch of girls were in line with what Wes is talking about two which is that under the Trump administration we have. Fortunately got use to administration with Mike Pompeo at Trop and Pitts and their advisors who are very tough when it comes to religious persecution abroad, especially Americans, imprisoned abroad with these other administrations and with these other people. The Joe by just talking about it is like pulling teeth to get the State Department engaged and certainly you probably won't have Joe Biden tweeting out that he's about to sanction a NATO ally like Turkey to get American home in Jordan. The difference, quite simply, has been Presidential level engagement. I may look this is another example of an issue where we draw on decades of experience. We worked on religious freedom issues across the globe, but specifically religious prisoners of conscious of people that are being held usually Americans toward her being held in other places of the world on account of their faith and look at going back through Democrat and Republican administrations. It has been like pulling teeth to get the bureaucracy and specifically to get the President to raise that to the level of their particular interest in their particular focus and so therefore the wheels of government did not engage as aggressively as they should have on this Jordan that turned on its face during the last four years, Pres. Trump. I think one of the things he did most effectively is say no. As the leader of the United States of America. When we have one of these issues. I am not going to put it on the back burner because it might upset the economic applecart know I'm getting engage and as a result Jordan. There is a long list of resounding success. Were these prisoners were returned home, they were released in their back home now because of that, and I will I will just tell you as we look forward to the next four years.

I would hope no matter who is President that we would very simply look back at the last four years and then juxtapose that with the, the last previous decades, and see that there has been a dramatic improvement in that track record, no matter whose President, Jordan, the model that Pres. Trump put forward. It is just plain and simple.

It's the one that the that America should follow going forward will you let me just say folks to animate your notebook by Smith on the swing. This is a model again that we've gotten used to. But we know that we need to prepare for the potential of an administration comes in and goes right back to the same old way the Republicans and Democrats in the past it, which was going to go through all these levels, the State Department, all this diplomatic and the present won't say anything about it. If he does will be very will be a written statement that's kind of law and the hope to God that may be, get these people back home. Yeah yeah you know what what prison Trump is made very, very clear and in he's very candid he's very direct.

You know, people criticize him of not being nice to our allies and provoking your enemies a he's actually done.

Neither of those but he made it very very clear. Jordan that with people like Turkey who held you know Americans in Iran and other places. It is in your best interest to support the United States as we try to look at our national security and personal interest as well.

The same is true with our NATO allies. Yet it would very clear.

We will support you. We have this common defense treaty, but it is in your best interest to help the United States with our national security and other interest as well.

That message has been so consistent and so clear and it's that message in that policy that really hangs in the balance right now you know Donna is on YouTube – his super chatter should she donated to what I want to thank her for that and she said just thank you for all you do with ACL.

Jamie thank you Donna as well you know we haven't talked about yet to resurfacing from the Obama years in some way to deal with a lot on this Iran issue it.

John Kerry is looking to make a comeback stand as this time climate czar that this goes back again to the Georgia Senate races and agree new Deal degree new deal could go right through Congress. If Chuck Schumer becomes a majority leader fan of the U.S. Senate. I don't know if you be exactly everything people like AOC would want because there are some modern Democrats there that they did they have to get through and they'll be Republicans as well and then there is a fit legislative filibuster will see if they get try to get rid of that or want to get rid of that but that is why those two Georgia Senate races are so important because job carries gonna be now in part of this group as well.

If Biden gets there and now it's covered is climate czar. Yet nothing good can come out of this Jordan Ewing over John Kerry is on this issue and look whether it's green new deal or agree new Deal light which would be bad enough. One thing we do know that he would do is is advised that the incoming President rejoin the Paris climate. Accordingly, Jordan if if that's not bad enough, you know you have to get all the way to green new deal to know what John Kerry would say I think it's yet another example in this foreign affairs space where the this group of people. The names that were hearing coming out would use that sort of maximum latitude that our President has in the foreign affairs space not having to go through Senate to do an awful lot of damage, not Jordan, as you related to Georgia it if Democrats pick up those two seats and VP Biden transitions into the White House in the pie Paris climate accord is the least of your concerns when it comes to this issue right.

That's what that's why were talking about this folks, you've got to be realistic to be a good warrior for for the causes you care about is if it's for conservatism for the kind of policies that Pres. Trump put forward by the populism that America first kind of ideas.

You gotta be a good warrior and that means you get a sometimes at the battle back against bad policies and bad Presidents and you won't have all the tools your disposal possible you could have a Republican majority of the U.S. Senate that can again make the Paris climate accord has the worst where they can go instead of as they had just said edit once a week that could be the least yours.

If you agree new deal and economically. That could be disastrous for that I take very, very seriously. The hair stood up on my neck when I heard it when Chuck Schumer says. First we take Georgia and then we change America chain. I'm not sure marijuana change America the way Chuck Schumer does know I don't think you do want that. But he also we get to be in this battle right now. Do not just assume that things are going to turn out the way you want them to lessen how the world works that set with the Bible teaches either when it comes to worldly affairs instead of turn out the way you want. Prepare for battle. Always be ready always be ready support the work ACLJ ACLJ.hors d'oeuvres matching challenge month of November at the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be now $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in the world protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and your family.

He nominated six to this court wanted to be recuse one join the court too late, but it just shows you how the courts arch have been changed and are still in the process of that change. We dug out the embedded there still more nominees that will be confirmed regardless of who becomes President in Inchon in January that there will be more Trump nominees confirmed to the federal bench. Frank Manion is joining us again senior counsel with the ACLJ because Frank I want to take people through again. What happened in the Sixth Circuit and then what happened in the Fifth Circuit. These are battles that we have been fighting Frank for a number this one this this case, the Fifth Circuit dates back to the Obama years of 2015. Make know that these pro-life victories don't come overnight that we were getting very many pro-life victories free cases because it's the right thing to do. We make the arguments we going to court would get shot down. But with this latest batch of appointments that were saying to the federal courts of appeal. It's a whole new day. Whatever ends up happening at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for pro-life litigators. It is morning in America, and it looks like it to be that way for a long time to remember federal judges have lifetime appointments for office every four years or every eight years there. There are laws that want them there and so this is a whole new day, two days in a row were talking about Court of Appeals pro-life victories. This is unprecedented as it was the sixth circuit court of appeals we were asked by the T Center, Tennessee. We were asked by the Tennessee Atty. Gen. directly from the ACLJ to get involved.

Write a brief amicus brief in that case, tell explained just quickly that victory in the will move on to the new victory today right, the court ruled in favor of the state of C with regard to its ban on abortions for race, gender and Down syndrome diagnosis again our Court of Appeal decision out there. The go the other way, but this is a new day and and this is a huge victory for the cause of of life and we get news out of Texas out of the Fifth Circuit that the state of Texas and Louisiana are allowed to disqualify Planned Parenthood is a Medicaid provider. There are Courts of Appeals around the country like majority of them go the other way. The Fifth Circuit now joined the Eighth Circuit, which of course accepted the classic circuit split which is the kind of case the Supreme Court take these decisions work happening four years ago two or three years ago before some of these recent appointments actually got on the bench but we are seeing a whole turnaround in federal courts are going to do with the issue of like any other thing to remember is these cases build on factual records that the ACLJ and its litigation over the years, sometimes even losing litigation has established the case without a tech to the Louisiana are based on the CMP videos that Center for medical progress. We represented a board member of the center of medical progress.

There were cases filed in Texas against Planned Parenthood for billing practices that we were involved in years ago. All of these are part of the case that we saw out of Texas and Louisiana. And that's kind of the nature of what we do doesn't happen overnight were now seeing the fruits of our labors. Finally, the Sixth Circuit now to the Sixth Circuit. This is en banc panel to cases in Texas and Louisiana but also affects Mississippi now there there there opinion and tell people about that we we we briefly told people about this is a way that states can actively defund Planned Parenthood tell people about this victory because it took going to the en banc panel of the Fifth Circuit argued the state lost 77 en banc means all of the judges of a particular circuit.

Normally Courts of Appeals make decisions based on three-judge panel but when there's an issue of exceptional importance that more members of the court think that they need to weigh in on they convene the entire court of the en banc court in this case it was. I believe 16 judges will a few years ago before the recent crop appointments. The case law*side lost 77 and now we have an 11 to 5 victory shows the importance of judicial appointments to be to stand we look at this present trumps nominated and confirmed six new judges to the Fifth Circuit for them are participating yesterday. I one had recuse one join too late, but there are more coming as well to the federal bench. I mean this is again it's breathing new life into the battle for life that the ACLJ is been engaged in since our founding helicopter country door and I mean first of all, there are three circuit courts that have flipped majority is out right. The second the third and the 11th. There's another court, like the ninth which notoriously is been the most circuit the most difficult circuit court for us to litigate and then to 10 of those 29 judges have now been nominated by Pres. Trump Jordan we seen good rulings come out of there because they know the closer that spread is the more likely it is that you're getting get a good draw on it and then you have cases like the Fifth Circuit that Frank just talked about where it's not necessarily been a flip but but it was a draw in the last time the same case was heard and now it's an overwhelming 11 to 5 win in Jordan that was without one of the truck nominees even getting to hear the case because of joining it too late and another being recuse suggests dramatic improvement and again you want to talk about continuing to work through the end of the deadline here because the Senate is still in session. There gonna be in session through Christmas mostly and they have a number of these hearings that still have to be moved out of committee and then onto the floor. So there's a lot of other things that were looking at Jordan and this is something that you and I discussed there's the ongoing election litigation.

There is the potential transition that's moving forward about Jordan as Frank mentioned, these are judges that would have lifetime appointments on the federal bench. They been nominated by present trumps.

They are currently sitting in the United States Senate in the United States Senate has full constitutional authority to consider them and confirm them and no matter how those other things shake out. Jordan. They would sit on the federal bench for the rest of their lives or until they retired. That is absolutely something that is worth fighting for any yields Jordan results in. I would say that you these cases, Frank. To me it just underscores how you can continue to fight for life and see victories regardless of who's in the White House in January that the states began this battle under the Obama administration a hostile administration to life. We may have another hostile administration to life. We don't know yet we might know in the buying administration. If we do, though these are these are battles that are waged in court and the courts have been fundamentally changed because of what Pres. Trump is done and and were able to take a much more kind of aggressive approach to these cases across the country because other states will now look at this. States that have paperlike majorities in their state legislatures, their governors and say you know what these are just gonna be cases weak legislation that we pass because we feel like it's the right thing to do their work in a petrified out-of-court and probably likely lose. Now it's it's hey we can fight this out important and likely went what you have any meetings or phone call to Lebanon over the years with your dad, and others of the ACLJ were we talked about where we could bring the case but will lose what Seo LeSabre ammunition for another court somewhere else. It's a whole new day. We will have a chance in basically every single Federal Circuit. Now that we didn't have before. I'm excited about what you just said there is some born again at every Federal Circuit. It's not like the Ninth Circuit is not the Ninth Circuit of 2012 was for that way. Frank exactly but the idea of bringing it case on behalf of life and the Ninth Circuit in past years, which is sort of tilting at windmills when there's nothing wrong with tilting at windmills.

It's nice to win once in a while and I think we finally have the chance to do that is a good chance we states can defund Planned Parenthood and by the way there defunding Planned Parenthood because it utilizes videos they solve how Planned Parenthood was miss you using fonts in carrying out abortions the wrong way so they could sell the body parts and things like that of aborted babies. That's what the states base their defunding on wire they defunding this way I through Medicaid and then got en banc panel saying you can do that now and you can do that now in Texas and Louisiana and Mississippi. I think it will encourage other states to to pass similar laws will be challenged by Planned Parenthood. But they know they've got a much more friendly. It's not 100%, but a more friendly federal court system. And of course I am retired by the next segment all the way to the top at the Supreme Court to so Frank just quickly I think this this just it kinda shifts how, in the web were working all these cases, but it shifts how will be approaching even regardless of who the President is how will be approaching these cases in working with state legislatures and governors that are pro-life to get things done because it really is.

Think about that thing for you for joining us again today shifts or tease majorities next segment segment how this may end up at the US Supreme Court understand that folks. It's a new day and a new battle. Let's be ready for the battle with the right to file with the radio system states in his governors support the work ACLJ pro-life cause. One of our top causes building today ACLJ.org only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive.

Whether it's defending religious freedom.

Protecting those faith uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress.

ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help way limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift dollar gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms online ACLJ Jay Sekulow we are to your phone calls 164 3110 order my people that they swing to get that information out you about the back to back pro-life victories in the Sixth Circuit and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals heard from Frank made any. This is this is kind of a new day for the pro-life movement when it comes to battling in court supporting good state legislation. We work with states all the time on this legislation to make it the best possible because we know will be challenged in court, so getting it ready in the case of the Sixth Circuit.

Of course, who worked with at the Tennessee Atty. Gen. directly assisted coming be involved this case at the Fifth Circuit expected 2015 and the states Going back kept fighting and that did the judiciary significantly shifted within the Fifth Circuit to a point where when it went en banc was at the three judgment went en banc they want 11 to 5 to be able to to stop funding to Mila defund Planned Parenthood through Medicaid just certainties. Also, senior counsel with us.

The ACLJ works a lot of pro-life issues away. This is also joining us right now if you want to talk to us very got questions about this. 164 3110 because Jeff what I want to focus on with you is after he discusses with Frank is that ultimately these cases that involve the abortion issue make their way almost all the time to the US Supreme Court.

Do you see this that that the case retirement today that a Fifth Circuit and likely the one on the sixth Sixth Circuit to ultimately being before the Supreme Court from Court of Appeals regarding Planned Parenthood funding.

We now have what we call a split in the circuits regarding that issue. Whether or not Planned Parenthood can sue under federal law to question a stage determination that they are no longer a qualified provider under the Medicaid law. You have a split in the circuits where you've got the Fourth Circuit six the seventh and ninth in the tent all saying that Planned Parenthood does in fact have that right now with the Fifth Circuit's decision, you got the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. You got the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, saying that no Planned Parenthood doesn't have that right now because were dealing with the interpretation of federal law.

And because we have a clear split in the circuits with the majority of the circuit courts of appeals having ruled on this very issue. The Supreme Court is much as it wants to try to avoid controversy at times is not taking an activist approach to these things. It's not going to be able to ignore this issue much longer and I imagine that if Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood does go ahead and follow certain precipitation with the Supreme Court that the Supreme Court is not going to turn away. That's her petition. But that's a strategy position the plant by Planned Parenthood estimate care were now looking at with Justices Dorsett Cavanaugh Barrett now on the court. They got me wondering whether or not they now have a chance before the United States Supreme Court to prevail on the on that issue and if they take that case up to the Supreme Court, and may lose that directly undermined the victory that they have scored and all those other circuit courts of appeals that I've mentioned going back to what you were talking about earlier with the legacy of Pres. Trump and hopefully this legacy will continue has been enormous now that we have one third of the United States Supreme Court having been appointed by Pres. from the Circuit Court judge it's been appointed by Pres. Trump and it's a major shift in engine to that point you just made and we are taking people's phone calls a limited run on Facebook Jesus in Sacramento. Thank you ACLJ for the work you do to protect the pre-born.

We appreciate that, Linda. We appreciate you listening in your support, but but I will go back to his. Now, Planned Parenthood is to make a decision that used to not be so difficult for them which is just they take it to the Supreme Court and Supreme Court Ct. rules against them and says yes. States can do all the states can do what Texas and Louisiana did. Then there's about 26 states I can point you right now because the Republican state legislatures and governors who would probably knowing that is not can face the kind of that they got Supreme Court precedent backing them. If Planned Parenthood loses it that this could be where more than half the states in the country are able to defund Planned Parenthood through Medicaid or if it's this the sex selective abortion out of that, the Sixth Circuit or down syndrome focused abortion on the six circuit they have a different calculation to make different calculation that was no Planned Parenthood runs to the supreme court here as used to be the knee-jerk reaction with these types of issues. The Supreme Court ruled against Planned Parenthood and of course you know who knows of the Supreme Court going to do but appear to read the tea leaves.

I think at least the state of Texas. You have a very good chance indeed.

Then Planned Parenthood stands to lose a lot of the victory that it is one in these other circuit courts of appeals, Planned Parenthood will have an uphill battle in other states are Republican run state that want to go forward with defunding Planned Parenthood so they have a huge strategy decision to make here, given the fact that one third of the Supreme Court is not our now prompt appointee, and you know that further emphasizes the issue get going back to the Court of Appeals judges themselves as you were discussing with Frank earlier on the show used to be that well and circuits. The Ninth Circuit at one time the Sixth Circuit Fifth Circuit at one time.

It just really didn't have a very good shot if you're engaging in pro-life litigation and now it's a new day and no circuit courts of appeals so that Planned Parenthood is a big old decision to make here and this is why going back to what you been talking about with man on the radio and previous episodes. This is why… Special. What special elections in Georgia matter so much that the burden of the Democrats get control of the Senate, with up and assuming Biden does become President. Of course we don't know that that for certain yet than those judges and their judges through it as well is the court packing question which again would take action by Congress, and we know the statements were YouTube? Can Joe Biden pack the court. Well, a lot of that.

I mean just that you just mentioned under the same minute and this is good.

A lot of that will be based on whether where the Senate goes and these Georgia runoffs because it's not gonna happen. If it's Mitch McConnell and control the US Senate Republican majority, and it might. I don't know if it can happen with a just a one or two seat majority.

But we do know Stan that Joe Biden has pledged to put together a committee to look at increasing the numbers on this reports he's looking at both of these issues are absolutely on the ballot in Georgia. Jeff is absolutely right. If Democrats would pick up both of those seats and in a Biden administration would take the White House, Jordan, there is no doubt that a legislative filibuster and then a court packing scheme would be on the agenda. Now we know from previous efforts on this exact issue that it can be hard with the narrow majority, you know, Sen. John McCain infamously denied the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Through his vote in the reconciliation process with Jordan.

That process would be open to Democrats in that scenario, let me encourage you to be a part of our matching challenge month of November and tell you right now if you're able to donate five dollars, that makes a huge impact because of it for hundred of you donate five dollars, during a matching challenge month okay that that's again it's $500 but actually very matching challenge month that becomes $1000 ACLJ because we have a group of donors before the month of November so you know what will match everything that is donated to you in the month of November.

Now it's up to us and you to raise that to get those donations so that they have to matching let's make sure those matching donors have to match quite a lot this month.

I think wearing a pair some real warfare, legal, government affairs internationally using every thing that we got at the ACLJ, including our son radio and television, and the experts behind that the production that we have all of that we got a pair for we can be even that much more strong.

Even that much more prepared with your financial support donate in double the impact of your donation right now and ACLJ.the American Center for Law and solutions at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be now $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most to you and your family.
