Today I'm sick you'll see that it has a first town hall with Pres. Biden and it's all a bunch of softballs will talk about that today. On second Washington DC Jay Sekulow questions right now: one 806 843-110-1800 68412, and now your host secular because of the great work of art and art were radio studios located we were able to get them and I'm still broadcast over because I would look further with the studio at like 70% of the country I got I got more coming today, but RT would be getting up your listening on radio right now your sick what you talking about I heard the radio for the last couple days. We prepared those in advance, knowing that the storm was coming that we were going live this is important for radio audience usually listens on the radio station or Sirius XM to know that even on the days were we were not able to go and get into the studio to produce the show live like we are right now. I talked all of you are both on for social media, but that all our radio networks and Sirius XM live that week we were doing about a half-hour live show at noon Eastern time. Both of the past two days all at the date of the Jay Sekulow Facebook page and of course you can share throughout the day so we were still updating people live on what was going on post impeachment what was going on and will take your phone calls they wanted hundred 64 3110 when Jim called me their latest revelations there really talk about that again with Rick Grenell so if you missed that.

The last couple days we will get to that. I want to talk about with RCR's special visor for national security and foreign policy Rick Grenell as David is been joining me and we get our take your phone calls now rely one 800 684 31 two that's what hundred 684-3110.

We didn't want to focus on something that I think it's just fair because you're lucky to get the same coverage and insight anywhere else Joe Biden. Surprise surprise is not being treated the same way by the media as President Prabhu was who was who were coordinating the tribe take him out of office before he even took his oath of office. Back when he was elected associated got this unique opportunity in the midst of a pandemic. A crisis we just had impeachment trial were present troubles acquitted of wheat we have all these issues school closings going on across the country that are going away. What happened in New York with Gov. Cuomo for policy.

What about China and there there. The genocide that they are taking that that they are participating. It is the State Department recognize the end of the truck administration. Other Muslim population of Western China.

What about all these issues. Why did Anderson Cooper talk about these things and instead he like to talk about what it's like to live at the White House picklist of this leaders of your creative elderly spent a great deal of time in 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. except now you're living there and your President is been four weeks. What's it like has a different idea. More look at Joe's there were glory yeah that that have stiffer great guy so different for him out because they had. Interestingly enough, what was discussed. I'm looking at my screen here, it is not a normal studio obviously so that like laptop set up your but again there was a lot of focus on the covert within the thin ultimately it is back-and-forth it in the White House is not been clear longer covert policy. Three. Kemal Harris, VP, Pres. Biden and and Jim Saki all saying different things about school openings and vaccines and things like that.

They didn't touch it all.

Gov. Cuomo and the fact that Democrats in his state are talking about impeaching him over the nursing home's scandal. They didn't talk about the White House deputy press secretary magic. This happened at the present trouble.

The White House deputy press secretary TJ.co forced to resign after was really prorated a political reporter, sexist language, and threatened to destroy her pursuing a story about his personal relationship focused on advanced topics we get back, but none of that. That's the magic that story broke about it.

Deputy press. Under the truck team and the questions that would've probably the town hall. CNN about sexist or print out former Press Secretary.

Think about that.

Will be back 164 30.

I didn't quite get us at the state one Rick Grenell will be joining us in the next thing the broadcast really talking about issues that we haven't been able talk you about on air on with all our broadcast stations and Sirius XM we were going live on social media. These last couple days but we are where studio is it still you know I covered in in Iser team was able to get in safely. Just for the show today.

Others got screwed out of there before the next wave comes through and hopefully we will be back a kind of regular. I'm hoping tomorrow, but at least by Friday but but will still be live on the air.

Hopefully tomorrow without with live programming and throughout the week, but we will have Rick Grenell joining us live in the next segment of broadcast will be staying with us little bit longer to show today were to be talk about Iran really talk because there's new Ron his base. He started producing uranium metal which European partners in that a failed Iranian nuclear deal as it has no civilian purpose whatsoever. So in total violation of the deal they have with Europeans and there's also a lot going on, present, Biden has not yet called Prime Minister Netanyahu is not reached out to the US number one ally in the Middle East in Israel and then of course that the news about Kobe. This may be new for radio audits of your Facebook and periscope watching on YouTube, I can share this broadcast with your friends and family right now to click that share but is monumental for the day and a course that is a full live out what our broadcast to share that with your friends and family now but let me also let you know that for those who were able to get the live broadcast on the radio stations or serious Sirius XM yesterday that the gym Kobe told it would image this is so insecure. He told the director of national intelligence that he could not sufficiently corroborate the steel dossier and right after that signed off on the Pfizer war renewal on Carter page American citizen and in that renewal. It said that the steel dossier was verified so the one hand, he said he could corroborated it on the other hand, he is taking it into courts with his signature. So talk about that with Rick Grenell as well. But then I want to get your comments on this first you have a White House deputy press secretary TJ.co who is been on a lot of mainstream media.

He was forced to resign on Sunday after his rubric revealed that he berated threatened the political reporter with sexist language threatened to quote destroy her pursuing a story about his just a personal relationship. He had reporter whether or not there was a conflict of interest is actually kind of a legitimate story. If you're the White House deputy press secretary of a relationship with a reporter.

But then, if this had happened undertook. So Job I designate a single question about that in the seated town hall that is deputy press secretary was using sexist attacks and threatening report River and it was the truck administration was supposed to be so anti-press and anti-media. II don't member any stories like this. But second, the fact is that the actual press will even cover it when it happens, the Bible, White House yet affected was an issue in the first place.

Jordan really should tell you all you need to know about the Biden ministrations relationship with the press, but the fact that it wasn't brought up last night. I think really is a stain on CNN.

Jordan look mean if this it happened or the trumpet ministration are quite frankly, if it happened under administration.

Prior to that II break worked briefly in the George W. Bush administration and if it had happened under any of the press secretaries there. It would have been not only the first question asked in a briefing like this door and I don't think the topic would have left it even even likely in a situation like rent now were never in the middle of a pandemic, it would have dominated the press briefing and I'll tell you this. II don't think the press would've been content until the present United States came out and address the matter.

Especially after what Pres. Biden said when he was coming into office that if there is any mistreatment of staff they would be fired immediately. I think that in those situations. The present would've had come out and face those questions, but in this situation Jordan when the press itself had an opportunity. Press the question. He was even asked that not even asking to not ask that about Paula. This is a huge story because he praised New York Gov. Cuomo I his covert relief and and then he's not asked about that. That's another huge scandal going on affects one the biggest states in the country right now about why almost covert related pay at patients and deaths were not being reported correctly and it was done because they do want to tell the trumpet ministration because of the Department of Justice investigation. I got Democrats stand and state government. There joining with a lot of Republicans who have called for Cuomo to possibly be impeached if he doesn't reside at the state level and that again Cuomo was at the White House last week and I get not no discussion whatsoever about this kid will I think the question is should been asked of the President last night was when you did interact with Gov. Cuomo last week.

What did you demanded from him. Did you get to the bottom of this. Did you ask why this information. I was revealed in a drawer and I think that question probably was and asked because I would almost guarantee that conversation with Gov. Cuomo did not involve oppressing for accurate information, but I would. I would even zoom out a little bit Jordan on this covert issue. I just you know on a more macrolevel this was an opportunity last night to really get to the bottom of a couple other pressing issues, not as just maybe give you two of them out. One of them parents across this country.

Jordan have a right to know when schools are to be open when there to be fully open ended generally outdid the consensus across the board from the medical community is that it is time to aggressively drive forward and yet there's this disconnect between agenda sake and Pres. Biden. I didn't see nearly enough guidance for parents who are really trying to figure out when they can get back into the workforce in a full-scale mode based on when their children will be back in school and the second thing Jordan, this is maybe more little bit in inside baseball but the stimulus package for covert relief is going through what's known as but budget reconciliation Jordan that Bill is supposed to be on the floor of the House of Representatives next week and yet we don't know what the final version will be. We don't know what will be in it. We don't know what will actually survive the reconciliation process because of what is known as the Byrd rule last night Jordan people who are in need of help. I think they deserve to hear from the President specifics about what will be in that bill when it will pass and why they're not looking for bipartisan instances.

I didn't hear this is specific. Last night Jordan and I break several really tragic news news that I think I know he was preparing for what it is breaking out median and I heard about just a little before it broke in the news, and that is that Rush Limbaugh has passed away at the age of 70.

As you know, it is final.

Radio shows been talking about that every day being a blessing from God's really had a moment of of renewed faith in his life going through the that the illness which ultimately took his life. But let let me just say a 33 year career in broadcasting and and shows like ours where we cross over into conservative and Christian radio in the people of these shows didn't exist before Rush Limbaugh on the scale that they do to go national to have a national broadcast like ours like Sean Hannity's like Russia's likely back like all Soviet savagery go through this there's different types and that there's Markowitz is always out there doing different things on our broadcasters all the great Salem radio host as well as that that crossover the conservative world. None of us would be doing this, we would be doing the ACLJR work legally that all that I would be going on but but this this broadcasting open often really conservatives taking over the airwaves and list the liberals of Heather opportunities it tried to compete, but they this is just like this is a platform that they cannot compete on and it goes to Rush Limbaugh who had excellent research. Excellent commentary every day without afraid did not hold back punches and I would you think him in this moment that is so tragic and sad that unfortunately many of us know, including rush that this was coming at it any day that every day was a blessing when he Broadcasting that know he often without us being on the show. We did take a lot of guest on the show at but he he often cited the work of the ACLJ directly and I will tell you the reach rush every time he did that up until even just mere weeks ago and he would be to us or mention something by one of our our ACLJ team members babysit Jordan secular wrote this up@aclj.org or Matt Clark wrote this back on red state, a river that would doubt occurred in preventive ACLJ. This would happen fairly regularly in Russia's. I wish you would do it without telling you beforehand.

If the people would just start texting you an email. You say Rush Limbaugh just talked about you guys. That was a kind of reach and he had, he will be seriously missed in the conservative movement for what he brought to the table every single day, which was excellence in broadcasting and it was he was the bottom. No one can ever be rush.

No one will ever be rush, but he certainly he gave us the model and said we can do this and radio stations can carry this they can be successful will get lots of blisters and people being games and they want to be informed they would have log format discussions.

So, it's just that I don't from our production team's level of production was to live for from someone like me who's a broadcaster as part of my job but not full time. He is getting is that he is and will always be the gold standard, but to just let you know.

Pray for his family as Rush Limbaugh has passed away at the age of 70.

Succumb to that disease that the best of the best when it comes to the greatest of all time on conservative radio. We know who the goat is and will always be that is Rush Limbaugh. It is a sad day for the conservative movement is a sad day for conservative broadcasting, but I know Roche would want us to continue the fight as he sensibly tugged his last broadcast, that's were to be doing.

Pray for him. His family as I he goes on again version new experience of Christianity which is so great. Only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable and voiceless deserve. 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 to defend the rights of 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 battle supports and the publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life Jesus were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member.

Thank you for your thoughts. Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ hello, we are 31 to 2000 684-3110 just for those you might just be joining us upset. Mission a couple times. I knew I just before going on air but it was a pop public yet that Rush Limbaugh had passed away this morning. The age of 70 is a huge loss for the conservative movement but I also know Roche would want us all to push on. I he is really set the template for Frost to do these kind of broadcasts that crossover the conservative and rock a Christian world and it also like Sean Hannity exercise. The list goes on and on. I can't name everybody because he was the gold standard. He is the gold standard, the greatest of all time. He really made this not just a single you know one national host the talk about this but created this entire entire movement where we were able to have a conservative voice consistently. All throughout the day in many different options to improve. You want to listen to on radio using traditional radio using satellite radio using I get taking the video inside the studio. He was early to do that as well and using that platform or you're able to spend a little bit more time than you are on cable news talking about the issues so please be in prayer for a Russia's family and and all that he contributed to our conservative movement. I will just tell you again just example of his reach every single day.

Anytime rush rush and mentioned blog by the ACLJ makes a call of our names out and and again he didn't tell you he just was going through his research, or are something that we were doing. I could tell you my dad would tell you that in our team would tell you everybody would start texting say Rush Limbaugh stop you what you're doing right now and about what the ACLJ is doing that the huge reach. He had every single day, Monday through Friday. He will be greatly missed.

As part of the movement, and I think you know he expected this to the everyday was a blessing and and that we know he is inhabited NDA's Christian faith renewed so I get just prayers for his family. I want to go though the will to do what rush would want us to do which is to keep on keeping on all these battles over the river now are specialized for national security and foreign policies. During the slide Rick. I will ask you first. By this news about Iraq a week we talk. I guess the online were able to broadcast live, because these ice and snow storms of sorority will be other radio stations and Sears exit but Rick week we saw in the news that Iran is now producing uranium metal in the evening, the European members of the JCP away like Germany and France and the UK. Their same weight. There is no civilian purpose for this whatsoever and there. Now it is back-and-forth with the Bible ministration say if you don't lift sanctions were not to take action the Bible he was saying. You gotta stop doing this before we lift sanctions but they still want to get inside this bad deal Rick. What you think about all this before I get to that hope that you don't mind. I just take a second to say that I hope are all praying for Russia's family. It is a huge loss. He spent personally. So great to me and always pushing forward on the conservative movement. He's been a real leader and we now need a few people to step up and to try to take his place in terms of being on the front lines in fighting, so we have a soldier doubted we need others to step up. I'm glad that ACLJ is growing and being a part of that because I think that a big role to play. Going forward when it comes to Iran you know the one thing that I just want to say in terms of America and our European allies we have been on the same page with them. The media doesn't like to report it but we both agreed that Iran must not get a nuclear weapon week.

We share the same goals. The Europeans and Americans all see Iran is a problem and we share the same goals where we have differed is on the tactic and when information comes out that Iran is been lying and sneaking and trying to get the pieces of the nuclear program behind the back of the international community.

This send a shockwave into Europe and they are very clear about joining with America to stop Iran from getting now it's up to the Bible ministration to package the diplomatic flesh, but what we should do is is not allowed on to somehow pretend like they can get away with this we need to be united and and hit back very heart. Also, I don't mean the military is very clear had not diplomatically very hard and and in unity. I know this is another issue which is kind of perplexing to some of our audiences that Pres. Biden is yet to reach out to our number one ally in the Middle East is yet to have a phone call with Prime Minister Netanyahu. These are calls are usually made pretty early on administration.

He certainly had time to do it when there was focus on the this kind of bogus impeachment trial and not as much focus on his administration. And yet we find out he still has not yet made that phone call, Rick. Everyone had a message that said to a part of the world was just starting to make peace with Israel in a public way in and try to kind of reshape alliances if you will, is unacceptable. It's unbelievable that after 30 days, President of United States, the new President has still not called our greatest ally in the Middle East. Israel, the leader of Israel has not received a phone call from the President of the United States that is shocking. I think when you look at the news of this past weekend where we know that Pres. Biden took at least 15 to 20 minutes to play Mario cart with his granddaughter. I think that the priority should have been to call Israel. I understand that he needs a little time off, but when when you haven't called Israel in 30 days that's it's not that that purpose.

All avoidance of Israel that is not a will get to you. This is a strategic delete by Jake Sullivan at the national Security Council that there is a snap.

Israel now I find it really astonishing that around the same time that were snapping Israel.

Iran steps out and tries to come clean a little bit on what we know that they been working on this is a test of the Bible ministration to say what you do about it.

We see your distancing yourself from Israel. But now working to try to show the world that we want to be the regional power broker and that goes up against Israel against many of our allies and and once again I call upon Jake Sullivan to actually think through some of these issues that he's ignoring you.

Having this is a it just gets to me and our time and energy regularly stay with us and bind as I get asked about this at all. He does his first town hall really got a minute left here but this first town hall.

These issues didn't come up really should think about was a lot I write you with you in the next next half-hour broadcast was trying to any Kennebunk will be answered wasn't clearly assignment how you again.

I just feel like the media is not going to be the ones at least at this stage Rick just quickly to get any of this info out of Joe Biden and this is like across the pediatric robot that you okay supposed got our second half-hour coming up your that tribute from Rick Grenell as we've got good news. You probably hear your first. I hear that the Rush Limbaugh has passed away at age 70 are our prayers with his family have revolutionized what we do every day on serving Christian talk radio. The issue is not holding back any punches can't be replaced. But I know you all fighting on in the movement. He believed in so deep they will be right back. Our second half-hour and second decades the ACLJ has been on the frontlines of protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side. If you're already a member thinking. If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us, ACLJ.org, where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and now your host Jordan secular folk talk about effective one more time. I destroys the second half-hour that is the passing of Rush Limbaugh at the age of 70. I think if you follow Roger to know he knew this could be coming at any time and he said everyday was a blessing he had this renewed mode and it is very vocal about he was nutso to talk about faith a lot, but it really had to sell renewed faith in Christ and began to talk about that a lot more openly adds and and he has passed away at the age of 70.

But let me just say this are broadcast and and that they be the use of the airwaves to have the conservative discussions not always be in lockstep with the Republican Party not always be lockstep with you know us, you know, 888 talking points and never to hold back punches. This was all created innocence by Rush Limbaugh and it showed the media world. This can be successful if you put more shows like his on the air or shows like you know Sean Hannity's the Glenn Beck that the savages you have the marketability of arch are broadcast so many host I could go through our international, national, that was the key to national.

It was to speak to the entire country from coast to coast from North to South every dated there were conservatives and were to talk to. He is past, but his memory will end his really, his legacy will live on in all of that broadcasting.

But as Rick Grenell majorities that I said this is a huge void in, but it'll take many people to step up to fill it because of the voice that he had inside the conservative movement. He was so supportive of of all of us of all the groups that were out there fighting the battles every single day and I Rick I just this there a short segment of of the of the show will you have a couple bit is here, but just a mission quickly your note. Your support for Ross. I think you're right that it just be wrong not to spend a couple more minutes on this because it is such a huge loss for the conservative movement even though we knew it was coming. A roster was coming and the fact that he did without even having to have you on is a gas store or horse or even contact you directly.

He would support the ACLJ be reading our blog daily. Despite maybe we can always email the Texan people so excited that was happening until the final days of his life. You know, I can't remember over the last 25 years feeling really hard moments in the conservative movement wondering what were going to do.

Who is the leader and and just waiting on Rush Limbaugh sheltie here. The perspective he wasn't a partisan he was somebody who believed in policy issues and what surprised us pretty regularly. During my time throughout my career. The moments where it was intense. Rush Limbaugh always came to defend those of us that were pushing on the line. He understood that being on the frontlines of these issues was taxing and that people needed to be supported and that I can't think of an happening during my time at DNI.

He was one of the leading voices to say what this guy is doing is important. Pay attention. And so I I know were going to miss him. Many people are going to try to figure out what we do when we hear news that we need a conservative leader to speak out on and now we gotta have a couple of people that will do that work. I have to a problem because there's a man down and we need to figure out who are those couple of voices that can step in and you have the kind of leadership that Rush Limbaugh did filter to your phone calls at 164 3110. We will get a minute let's give it a fair bit of Washington DC that Rick normally gets you with us the information we learn about this exchange between Colby and Klapper, to which assist it's absurd that it would this not getting any coverage but of course we know Joe Biden gives us alcohol and its estimate what it's like to spend the night in the White House.

This is a guys been vice President before the senator most of his life within your reaction to the tumor, a rush as well as passing me just a model for what we each do every day. We just pioneered your 90 like a long-term struggle with illness is just so difficult with the legacy that he leaves behind. You're right it's unmatched not to say this I mean, I'm so grateful for the renewed relationship with Jesus Christ that he found in later years, Jordan, that that leaves me with a lot of peace that does it really does that leave me a lot of things to do not talk about faith a lot the start.

He started to later in life and eventually peace will be right back.

The challenges facing Americans or substantial time in our value freedom sword constitutional rights are under attack is more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades.

ACLJ is on the frontlines protecting your freedoms defending your rights and courts in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice defend the rights of life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition life will show you how you are personally support publication includes a look at all major ACLJ plainly faces were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists. The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to the pro-life side of the many ways your membership. ACLJ is empowering the right to question your free copy of mission in life today online ACLJ/secular. We are on the Facebook and YouTube and a big thanks to our production table slog through the ice where we are and then and there were snow and ice coming out today but I am able to get broadcast my home studio. Get this out to all of our radio stations live all Sirius XM of course all old social media outlets as well.

We been broadcasting live. The last couple days of glad we were able to get back don't think our team for for safely getting back into the office just so we can get back on the air for you and I wouldn't want to go to Ricker now are specialized for for Nash.

For Bossi, he is Greg greatly split a few segments with a stated this will be the final one, but at Rick, I would have to the breaking news yesterday and of course it doesn't get as much attention there's a lot there's a lot going on but at the same time we know Durham still out there is a special counsel of the Biden administration didn't remove him there some credit. I'll give them for that they have removed him yet say, but we now have learned that through documents and become a declassified that Jacoby communicated to Soto won't help your former position of the director intelligence, the Obama administration edge and Klapper that he could not sufficiently corroborate the steel dossier and then right around that time. This is that the very end of the Obama administration in January 2017. He signed off on a Pfizer renewal of Carter page was a US asset. The CIA told the FBI he was, not a rush of asset that they didn't care and they put the steel dossier and as verified and Jacoby signed off on it, but said he was pushing back and Klapper not to say it wasn't corroborated, even though he was telling Klapper that Rick God that this information is coming out. We've known this for a while internally but that idly revealed this just shows that Connie and Klapper were highly political and I can't believe that Jim Klapper in finding out this information didn't immediately say I got a go forward and make clear the truth where call me was clearly trying to muddy the waters and and do everything he could to help elect Hillary Clinton throw dirt on Donald Trump.

This is why it's so scary to me that weaponization of government. When leaders of the FBI and the DNI are scheming together to cover up the truth in order to help a political candidate. Think about that.

The FBI knew that information they were pushing was wrong and not accurate and they did it during an election because they wanted to ensure that someone would become President. This is what we hear about in Third World countries and yet it's happening here. We need a total cleanout of the FBI. It hasn't happened.

It needs to happen. They're not facing the mistakes that they've made, and this is just another example to show that more needs to be done to clean up the FBI written about florescent ACLJ.org and that's the nomination of Bill Burns to lead the CIA.

I know we talked about on this broadcast before but I really think a couple of nominations that are out there. Both Bill Burns and also Javier Becerra to lead the HHS upper represent some real problems for conservatives for people seeking consensus on these issues. I know I know you talked about in this broadcast how you were initially supportive of Bill to lead the agency because he's been a long-term consumer of CIA products, but I am hearing more and more on the hill a lot of trepidation of the just based on how deep his ties are in in China. I know that is your concern as well, but I think is were now moving into a phase were more of these nominations are gonna be hitting the floor of the Senate think is important for this to be front and center in people's minds. This specifically on Bill Burns.

What's your latest thought on that is this is this something somebody that that United States Senate should be confirming or you think there's a chance he can be defeated. I generally think there's a chance that he can be defeated with the new revelations about his ties to China. Let's be clear that he had a diplomatic career that was impressive and he spent it out. 33 years as a diplomat as an outsider consuming intelligence. I initially thought this is a good person to leave the CIA because he will bring a completely different set of a bias to the process.

He didn't grow up in the intelligence community and the gathering of information but he's been consuming that what he's done the last six years. After he left the diplomatic community is of concern for six years he's been raising money for his NGO leading an NGO which is largely been focused on China and cozying up to China and getting our congressional staffers, better relationships with Chinese communist leaders. This is a real problem for somebody, especially as a nominee to tutu Ron, the CIA, I would think you'd be more appropriate or our ambassador in China or another job but this post.

I think it is troublesome that I heard from a number of senators that they also are troubled and will have to see how his confirmation hearings go and what Republicans and stand up against its interesting enough Ricker Joe Biden was asked about Trident's are the toughest question he got from Anderson Cooper and of course we didn't get much from Joe Biden. I want to just comment on this exchange because I found it is really bizarre by the reset when you talk to him though about human rights abuses is that just is that as far as it goes in terms the US or is there any actual repercussions for China will there will be repercussions from China and he knows that what I'm doing is making clear that we in fact are going to continue to reassert our role as spokespersons for human rights at the UN and never I other agencies that have an impact on their attitude China is trying very hard to become the world leader so I Rick what you think about that is very bizarre but God's let's be very clear Just that utilize the UN and what we can to the UN, China and President. She loved that answer that's exactly what they want because at the UN China plays a duplicitous role they get a veto at the Security Council as a superpower, but they also outside of the UN Security Council organize with the group of developing nations called the G-77 so they have all of these small developing nations looking to bands as they yet were all in the same boat were all were developing nations in China plays that role because they have backside of China which is for, and which is still developing.

And so we've allowed China to have this. This dual role at the UN, and when Joe Biden says we're gonna just go to the human rights Council and bring up our issues. China loves that that's the weakest possible answer.

I also think that Joe Biden should have just said to Anderson Cooper and tell you about my conversations with Pres. Shea. But make no mistake I've made clear of this that or the other to going to detail of what he said to a world leader I think really gives it away that the conversation was one way China presented what they wanted. We just acquiesced rehabbing in this next question. I mean every Cooper follow-up and again what's astonishing is that Job I was basically saying in this next comment I play providing the refreshes that this is just this is the Chinese way of governing. Let's take a listen by five. We can't want my comment to him was, and I know him well when he knows me well, where to our conversation, he talks about the student. I talked about this too, and thus not so much refugee right talked about us and look you know Chinese leaders you know anybody Chinese history.

It is always been the time when China has been victimized by the outer world is when they haven't been unified home so the central approach are vastly overstated. The central principle of decision thing is that there must be a united, tightly controlled China and he uses his rationale for the things he does.

Based on that, when China has been victimized by the outer world is when they have been unified help is Joe Biden, Rick excusing the concentration camps for the Muslim community in China. Don't Biden has a 42 year career been an apologist for China.

It's why they overplay Prussia.

That's why they say don't look at China. It's why Hunter Biden's laptop is so important.

They have hired individuals like Jake Sullivan and others that have on the record said some really outrageous predictions about the rise of China. This is a team that doesn't believe that we can beat China. Remember, he said you know they're gonna eat our lunch or flip-flopping, saying they can't eat our lunch doesn't have any type of vision other than being friendly.

He wants everyone to like him and therefore this consensus idea with Europe and with others is gonna rain the day we are going to get policies that are good for you to get policies that are good for the global community.

We are taking phone calls at one 800 684 31 to fewer tortoises, less impacted because we have been doing these online broadcasts for our online viewers of secular the last couple of days because of the ice orbited towards the country we could get our radio team into the studio. I'm still broadcasting from home so we had a lot to cover for you. I in this broadcast of the impact of course, that news again I will say just that to be in prayer for Rush Limbaugh's family of Russia passed away at the age of 70 fact, I will reach you, you'll see this short-lived social media, but this is from Jay Sekulow chief counsel at the ACLJ Rush was a once in a generation broadcaster the change. Change the landscape broadcasting across America pioneered conservative talk radio. He was afraid of the ACLJ and supported our efforts. You will be greatly missed. So pray for Russia's families that is broke right as we were going on the air that he had passed away at the age of 70, I succumbed to the illness which he knew what could happen any day and he was prepared.

I talked to this was that sort of promotion screw talk much about faith. It is broadcast but he started to talk openly about his faith that is renewed.

Our relationship is renewed Christian faith with Christ as thanks.

I think that adds peace for probably a lot of his family.

I think for a lot of his listers as well that we know he had that peace inside of him and we know where he is all right now. Not suffering anymore from that painful illness.

I want to go to for a bit. I fed there is a lot of talk about when it comes to try to retirement with Rick in our work know that just as idea that China will.

This is how they were lead and unite the country so the genocide are taking part in. Don't worry about that because they get try to get so you don't get attacked with their unite United that was crazy to me if you actually unpack that this is outrageous during any need for President Biden to say that China is being victimized by the outer world. I really think we just need to say this grader a couple things going on right now. The Chinese government is exterminating Uighur Muslims during their exterminating then there also reeducating Christians inside their own borders. They are not the victims. Here, there, the perpetrators of a rightful lead to the designated genocide by the Trump administration and Pres. Biden needs to speak with force and that during this is not just hypothetical for us. This is the work that we do around the world, including in China, but in lots of other places. And if Pres. Biden wants to lean on the United Nations to be the answer here let you know this is true whether you're talking about Iran or China. By the way, the only way the United Nations is a force for good in the space of persecution is if the United States leads the way, if United States is not in the lead the way. Joe Biden can say all he wanted, there will be repercussions Jordan there won't be repercussions for China. Unless the United States is the driving force behind them, whether the United Nations is the vehicle are not gonna say it again, China is not being victimized by the outside world.

They are the perpetrators of genocide. Genocide against Uighur Muslims in the reeducation of Christians that is absolutely backward, and whether you support President Joe Biden or not Jordan.

He has gotta get this straight. That is the biggest fish are fed with his administration. Whether the school openings either getting slammed that know their goal in the first hundred days of the schools open. One day a week that that is not exactly school I getting things open. That's not exactly big ideas and sitting your setting high achievements and then you know when it comes to this be the vaccine think they're all over the place with the CDC guidelines of school openings all over the place ended with China all over the place, but present truck is not that there's not much since leaving office has just started commenting and boxers. On the passing of Rush Limbaugh good would you interview to miss present truck coveting on rustic was in recognition of all that you have done for our nation. The millions of people a day that you speak to and that you inspire and all of the incredible work that you have done for charity. I am proud to announce tonight that you will be receiving our country's highest civilian honor the Presidential medal of freedom sluggish I think but yet so I think Fox's going live with present trouble about the state you did I not sure if they have yet but I just got a break in your say they did to that they are going live at present truck if they do, our still on the air.

Will try to cover some of that. If not I get you Dort that that that is unique because I think this is when it comes Russia.

But what would you like that, while having this discussion to audit here is okay.

We got the audio now for present trouble ticket was what I wanted to emphasize to you is that Rush wanted to share and he he he wanted people to benefit from the great American success that he was shown Bill Hammer and and shine his job. It will be later, but I think you are a Charlotte cha-cha-cha.

Of course we'll talk about that it is relationship with Rush Limbaugh. I think they say they were going to have the present United States. I guess I will be happy later on.

The broadcaster gets excuses for other back-and-forth thereby. Just wanted you have the opportunity to hear was the President of four present truck company of Russia also give her try to go that live I love you back.

That something I do see you for it. If this is how the media is going to treatment that I could ask about Cuomo covered up nursing home Cova desk to ask about his Deputy Press Secretary. I can't even imagine if it happened at the present trouble be fired or having to resign for using sexist attacks on White House correspondent and threatening them that they'll destroy them and their career if they wrote about a fair piece which was how they relate their personal relationship daily. A reporter this was going out Deputy Press Secretary and other could be conflict there now. They reside in for Cooper to talk about that. He is a push on China. In effect, they are in the concentration camps going and he lets off a pass that offer is usually goes on and on and in the final question of what's it like living in the White House during the American people deserve straight answers from the President to just doing that's true whether your supporter of Joe Biden or whether you did not vote for him and look there are couple of issues that I really think he should've been pressed on a much much harder. One of them. Rick talked about when he talked about the fact that he has not called our strongest ally leader beeping at Yahoo at Israel during that's not acceptable at this phase of the initiation and then closer to home. We talked a little bit about the COBIT issue is not just parents who want to know when their kids are to be back in school. The Jordan, he started his whole answer on that by not being straightforward. He said we didn't even have a vaccine when I came into office.

Jordan he got his vaccine before he came into office to look just got a shoot the American people straight. These are issues that were really facing. He might have his vaccine, but many members of our families. Jordan we don't we deserve straight answers from the President of the United States and the American people are to live the way they have a go around and try to find a back safe. This is mostly administration with us to make it yellow streamlined everything well they're not in a foreign policy it's a disaster. Let me just give out close out today. We are praying for Rush Limbaugh on his his family. The huge loss for the conservative movement, but I know Rush would know that the committee soldiers to stand and as Rick said she got a man down take many to fill his place of prayer for him and his family for Rush Limbaugh's passed away at age 70. Talk to tomorrow. ACLJ has been on the frontline protecting your freedom is defending your rights importance in Congress and in the public arena.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side.
