VP Harris, Jen Psaki Have Some Explaining to do on Airstrikes.

Harrison Jim Saki Joe Biden himself explaining to do on the latest US airstrikes in Syria talk about that more today live from Washington DC questions right now: 1-800-684-3110 one secular radio unites, not getting a ton of it to the news which is interesting because I'm sure if it was present who sent airstrikes into a Syria specifically to not sin them into a rack. Even though that's where the US troops were attacked by Iranian backed militias. They wanted that they set the airstrikes into a supposedly places militias use that are actually across-the-board from a rack in Syria because it would upset the Iranians too much for me to read the exact quote from Adm. Kirby was back At the Department of Defense as a spokesperson getting the enemy left right maybe that's with only four years since he had that role. He's right back able to see it in his back there. What were folks to get artist is not yet whether or not these were the right strikes me. Obviously we had the US was hit by Iranian backed militias entered some US National Guard. It killed a contractor working with us so you were going to respond. The question is you respond in a way that tries to appease your audience is that the best way to come out swinging also to point out the hypocrisy present a trip said you know what you cross that redline Syria with the use of chemical weapons were to show you what will do if you do it again. Here's 100 Tomahawk missiles coming right at you and that you know what cabal here's the tight rope to that. I got the tweeted by him. We can put up on the screen for people on Facebook you periscope I strongly support our bid women in uniform and believe we must hold Asad accountable for his unconscionable use of chemical weapons, but I'm deeply concerned about the legal rationale of last night strikes the President. That's about truck needs to lay out a comprehensive strategy in Syria, in consultation with Congress. He needs to do it now. The she also wrote yesterday. My colleagues interested no more against Iran act, which would deny funds for unauthorized Terry action in Iran. Congress must act quickly so Trump doesn't unilaterally take our country into another wart that was just from the killing of Sue LaBonte, a targeted attack of the terrorist leader of the Iranian Revolutionary guard Jim Saki and my for what is the legal authority for strikes. Asad is a brutal dictator, but Syria is a sovereign country. But that would right now that because these strikes purposely were done if we believe what Kirby says in Syria are Iraqi allies who are not so great right would not be upset because actually this group is based out of the rack correct. So what what what legal justification was that the hit in Syria with the group is based in Iraqi they say it's all right on the border that uses Billy's they have it. Maybe they don't.

But this is hypocrisy. I think the biggest thing is not whether the limit of the action taken will boom the military action taken was appropriate may well be. I have no problem with nothing to say. He hopes it was just about to Bob's in the desert, yet he also was involved in the dozen that actually took something out the hypocrisy, however, which is so prevalent here is that you have a situation where exactly would President trumpeted Pres. Biden basically dead and binds people including Jen Saki or say what is the authority to do all of this and I think it just shows you the nature of the hypocrisy, but the President is the commander-in-chief Andy when I got a minute here and commander-in-chief has authority now don't have any doubt the commander-in-chief of the audit and I support that the that authority. But the question is hypocrisy that you mentioned that it is outstanding of President Congress criticized for what he did when humanity strives to question about Syrian sovereignty and so forth. But now it's okay when Biden ordered the strike of 7500 pound bombs in the desert as Sec. Pompeo says and what was Saki call the sovereign country. So which is it going to be made as a candidate, hypocrisy, or is it going to be appeasement of Orion Harris had no idea about this and was not happy about because she does ninth district. Maybe she's not as hypocritical search would suggest. But this is the part I can't stand the most. Mr. Kirby said the American belt retaliation was made to punish the perpetrators, but not to escalate hostilities with Iran is a running time of the process that challenges facing Americans is no freedom or constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever with the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontlines projecting your freedoms and rights in court in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success.

But here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you. Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us.

ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing, member today seeing okay only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable voice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying 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 cold like it will show you how you are personally publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications.

40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the Obama care means many ways your membership is empowering the right question mission in life today online/secular folks, this is something that troubles me the most about the strikes. It we might find out that the strikes were great. They were the right target and they were the base of the right message but but it seems like it was one trying to appease is exactly what Mr. Kirby John Kirby Adm. Kirby is now back up again as Department of Defense of the Press Secretary East Mr. Kirby said that the American retaliation was meant to punish the perpetrators of the rocket attack which are Iranian backed militias but not to escalate hostilities with Iran with which the Biden administration has sought to renew talks on the nuclear deal.

The present Donald J. Trump had shelved quote we have acted deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in eastern Syria and Iraq. What I'm not sure whenever a US air strike de-escalate anything but number two. I cannot stand this language.

We know that they were Iranian backed groups. They say that that Department of Defense do not try to hide that part right but yet we tried to do in a way that doesn't upset Iran. Because we want so badly Iraq to come back to the table for us. This is again the points of what we've been discussing with with with now with Pompeo. This idea of begging the Iranians to come back to the table and it just makes America look weak. I don't know why why we had this such a significant desire to increase the level of a friendship between the Iranian regime, not the people to regime in the United States military that was action was taken by Pres. Biden was because of what action that was taken by Iranian surrogates troops against the Americans in the United States when and under Pres. Trump to Syria.

We were going after Syria. No question Syria as a proxy for Iran. I mean nobody questions that but I think we have to be really clear and very real as to what is actually going on here and from a policy perspective, what they gotta get down area is what is the policy for the United States and engagement with Iran because it is kind of bizarre to say we want to reduce hostilities of lease we just did a small missile attack absolutely Cerro I think it's important to note that the Democrats and the Democrat-controlled media claims that the strikes will highly calibrated and were aimed at de-escalating future conflicts. This means that the Biden administration. In my opinion has not learned the lesson well of deterrence translation. The strikes were justified in my opinion, but in reality, Biden wants to continue Obama's policy of appeasing Iran. That's the bottom line. Our new senior counsel for global affairs. Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on a broadcast course. Monday will be made that announcement, they join the ACLJ we talked about the attack on the US National Guard and the truth by these running back groups and how the Trump administration will respond to this before there was any response from the Biden administration. Take a listen. We made a decision early on in the ministration we were we made that communication to the range the said we are not going allow you to get away with using proxies we mean by that. If a Iraqi Shiite militiamen underwritten by the Iranians attacks, an American soldier in Iraq come into Iran to impose costs on you. That is hard to do.

We make clear that's what this week. You saw that you saw what looks to have been Iranian sponsored attack that injured an American killed in a contractor inside of a rock and this administration says we want to go sit at the table and talk to them.

They will interpret that as a free pass to hurt Americans into not only did they not go into Iran. When this was done by Ron week took out some money to get that the leader of their Terrace forced Revolutionary guard pretty quiet after the shot a few missiles from Hamas and Israel.

Nothing rockets and distant missiles at us. It did nothing that no no casualties.

And so it was a very successful and you heard nothing from the Iran until the Biden administration course comes back and starts begging at the table, but that is because Iran now knows when their proxies hit at the US were not to go into Iran like Mike Pompeo said Iran knew from the Trump administration if you use your proxies outside of Iran to take the fight back inside Iran River take out super money really take out leadership really were to hurt, punish you, not just a bomb some Random Pl. in Syria right where those proxies are really to get to the heart of the problem that led to a more peaceful Middle East with Iran on the brink of economic collapse. This is the thing that I find interesting. Go to Andy and Pam on this because you look at the again I'm not challenging present binds decision to take to the missile attack. Yet they went, explained Syria versus in Iraq, I get it but not really because history is a sovereign nation is in socket was so upset about last time when she was alive and so was Joe Biden not so much anymore put on Mike about our military dancer a good job.

The point is what is the policy. What is the American policy engagement with Iran and the truth of the matter is you don't get it both ways. Crippling sanctions brought Iran to their needs now Joe Biden is already set Andy, the President has already said that through his most people that they want to go back to a discussion with the Iranians. However, they acknowledged that they are currently and have not been in compliance with the JCP away.

Now they were in compliance with the JCP away because the Americans but walked out because Europeans are still involved there in compliance with the JCP away because the Europeans let them do it because of the economic trade between these country Amb. Grinnell Art Art special Senior advisor on foreign policy was the ambassador. Germany noted that so you know this Iran policy issue. I think we had a reuniting Middle East coming together, which I hope this ministration doesn't destroy.

I don't think they can, but I think it's here to stay but boy there sending these mixed signals at an early stage are very dangerous, politically. I I mean we don't really have a coherent policy that we are exercising toward Iran and ultimately deterring and stopping there conduct I think Sec. Pompeo was correct in saying and asking the Knoxville rhetorical question is this really bombs in the desert.

I mean, you cannot appease dictatorial regimes by simply taking token actions against them for what we know our Sarah sponsored activities engaged in by their surrogates that happened in Inez Bill and then we now are taking these actions that are really not coherent and, in the sense what happened last night or two, and their time with a laughable act because we we did not have violently exercise the authority of the President, which I don't doubt that he has the ability to send bombs on desert outpost somewhere in the middle of nowhere. But you didn't really look at the real perpetrator and that's Iran you live, you given them a free pass yet again.

The Biden administration has done that that is not good. The top administration gave a very powerful signal to the Iranians for backing terrorist organizations and for taking terrorist activities under their wing and for promulgating them this I think of the present Pres. Biden did does not really prove anything but a weakness on his part to engage in acts that are really showmanship and not something substantive referred from Lindsey Graham again on this which it will take a look, but they would hearing Washington on this got very little coverage in the mainstream media. Very little yeah very little data are two main problems that the administration has from my perspective in Washington DC and it's kind of on two different sides of the coin, the first one you all have I touched on and with quite a bit of debt. The hypocrisy and the inconsistency here is going to really wreak havoc on them and they've Artie got core supporters like Johan Omar same know what in the world is going on here.

You said that you didn't have this authority and now you're using it. What's the story here that's to be a problem for them. But J, in my view, the bigger problem is this idea there now trying to convince policymakers that airstrikes are somehow a tool of de-escalation. Look, I mean we've been one of the voices on the right being very clear about the authority to use airstrikes but make no mistake about it, an airstrike has to be a tool of deterrence.

I thought Sec. Pompeo said it very well. He can't just be bombs in the desert. It actually has to accomplish a means that advances the interests of the United States. Nobody in the world. J is going to believe that an airstrike is somehow an active diplomacy or an active de-escalation, but look there going to have a big problem with this can because that not only have they been hypocritical, but the messaging on it is inconsistent and J they really lost people on all sides of the issue. Want to quickly view the journey for this assignment up from a policy standpoint. Again, I point to the inconsistency of the policy which is to be particularly dangerous if they are trying to kind of negotiations with Iran. I think that's true, and I think basically what the Biden administration has done is that they have prepared an open door for future Iranian aggression. That's what I think is going to glisten out ultimately here you have people like Joe Biden himself during the campaign, said this afternoon is a tweet I'll be discussing Donald Trump's recent action.

Syria how his erratic impulsive decisions endanger our troops and make us all less safe.

How was it you what was make your trip slicing Biden comes in and the first strikes on US troops.

I happened to his watching months every months if not years there have been strikes in US troops acting that region base from Iranian militias since we took out so money and those were very minor because we took absolute money and they still probably running the roof let revolutionary guard. This tit-for-tat, I just can't stand Natalie that I don't like giving our military stuck in trying to play on the same field as these proxy terrorist groups by the same rules almost right yes right will hit you fairly fairly fairly. This is this is leading towards a bad path, bad out only one. A society can agree most vulnerable. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying 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 light will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications.

40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the what Obama care means many ways your membership is empowering the right question for mission life today online/challenges facing Americans is freedom or constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice 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. But here's the bottom line we could not do her work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side.

You are already a member. Thank you. Not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ God where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ to your phone calls to 100 684 31 kids will delay this out because honestly it's just not getting much immediately gets it gets five minutes here and most of it is pointing out it's happening right now fosters how the Joe Biden steamer being ripped for their past criticism of Donald Trump on his accident Syria so I think it's fair to point out that they are.

They look very hypocritical. There's even a report out that while Harris had no idea about this and she's really upset because maybe she doesn't like you hypocrites. She was putting up tweets questioning the authority of Donald Trump to even strike Syria as a sovereign nation even though they are one that we would not consider course ally, but why strikes fear. This is after cubicle weapons were used for goodness sakes, was Obama who drew that redline and it would back it up and it was Donald Trump who said you do it to use chemical weapons. We are going to draw that as a redline and will respond he did with 100 tomahawk missiles and things quieted down there.

Isys was destroyed outback that he was killed. So the body was taken out as that of the Iranian Revolutionary guard, but you will get phone calls if you got questions about this. 164 3110 and I always point this out to my first reaction is here we go again potentially Democrats we don't know yet, but you get Democrats in office there supposed to be the liberals of the peace lovers and and yet because of this tit-for-tat know it's it's complement you know it's we didn't do anything more than they did. So it's the response was was measured.

It's how you get into conflicts and somehow under Obama.

We were in conflict everywhere Libyan Civil War. We had all these Arab Springs Rd., Syria, where the rack where you know it with Afghanistan under Trump pulled things down and the country was very safe in your care. We are set up, get away from that idea of these terror attacks being a huge threat to the world and we got rid of ISIS another back of the rights again in a different way. In North Africa, but we get to Chris's call in Kentucky. If you want talk to Sonny or 1-800-684-3110 phone lines are open hey Chris, welcome to secular hi, thank you very much for having me. I had a question like, what's agreeing with everything that you guys were saying, and especially with a conflict with this for that. I've been in the Air Force for 16 years.

Thank you. By the question is do you think that especially with this for that conversation you just had you think that this is just try to take away from like media attention for my current events that are going on right now, especially for like Corona belief they got a huge loss yesterday and basically this is not racist and I think you're right that $15 minimum wage. The left is put all this pressure on was struck by this is that, with suit said you cannot put this in any reconciliation package in the covert relief bill that a house though because they are so tied to their interest groups in the far left to keep it in there anyways you what this means. The city want to strike it out and delay more and more delay for actual relief to the American people welcome to Democrat-controlled House-Senate White House yes so I didn't tell you they would help Americans quickly and yet when they're told you can't do it this way still to keep it in there for political purposes. Shame on if the post is Democrats as Americans need help.

I think that's exactly right now the I don't think it was a distraction because it did not become a distraction. I think the question is on the landing here in this.

The question is that you have to realize that when you listen we can sake said about open no open invitation for diplomacy, take a listen to the sound bite. The point here is that expressing openness to an invitation to have a diplomatic conversation and then Andy we will go ahead and attack your truth which I understand exactly what I did. It will go ahead and attacked your troops and your surrogates that happily operating in Syria, but we don't want to escalate anything for this messaging is ridiculous and jamming it is ridiculous when we want diplomatic related relations and will rapport with you and we want to open the lines of communication with the sworn terrorist enemy of the United States is no question about it. Your surrogates attack as Bill kill Americans and what we do to retaliate really, really doing to show you how serious we are about saying that we don't like what you do and then will we condemn it as we drop seven, 500 pound bombs and some outposts in the middle of nowhere, making sure that it's in Syria so as not to upset you know the the Iraqis or for that matter, the Iranians in my opinion, but you do it in a sovereign country which I sake said before, several years ago that you shouldn't have the right to do and Kemal Harris not condemn roundly what will laughable. This is not an out policy. This goes back to what I have set on this program for years. You cannot appease a dictator. You cannot continue to feed the crocodile in the vain hope that he will eat you last and that's what were doing with the Iranians.

Lindsey Graham tweeted these very supportive of the strike hopes it will create necessary deterrence in the future, which carry a polity's perspective that's what you do you do it. Strike is deterrence, not to get back to maybe get some back of the table were negotiating something they want. That's only we want absolutely. So one of the things that the Biden administration could actually learn from with respect to the Trump administration is that the Trump administration believe that you take the attack per brought provided by the enemy back to the enemy so the Biden administration. Frustration needs to take a page from Moshe Diane who said to the Egyptians. Decades ago, but the road that leads from Cairo to Tel Aviv leads from Tel Aviv to Cairo. Instead, the Biden administration has basically said all we're going to drop a few bombs, but please come back to the negotiating table and we will basically give you what you want. I think the message that has been received by the Iranians is what let's attack Americans again and so I think the Biden administration needs to stand up and say we will not take this from any other country going for type I grew very tan Lemaster.

This is where, how about this little but the covert relief package lot people concerned about with this scripting the department or instruct on the ability to do this by wreck reconciliation. Basically what happened now what is the word of their well Chris. The caller asked the right question to me. They do need something to distract from this mass and weight.

We told people that this is coming weeks ago jaded. It could've gotten a bill out of Washington DC to permit put checks in the pockets of the American people. They didn't want to be bipartisan. They wanted a packet with policy initiatives including this $15 minimum wage. Jordan really set it correct here's here's the bottom line. The ruling from the parliamentarian and the refusal from Speaker Pelosi to take that language. And by the way other language that can be stripped out by the Senate out of that bill to move it out of the house tonight J the Senate will consider it next week to have to make those changes because of the bird world. And then you don't have to happen if you have to go back to the house for another vote.

So actually the bill that the house is voting on tonight J is not even not relevant because there can have to consider it again after all the extraneous material comes out in the American people going have to continue to wait for the checks I meant to say this, we get to the second half. The progress coming up to get into some this covert relief issue. What the politics of another thought more about Iran. What a week and a big week for us with the announcement that Mike Pompeo is now a senior counsel with global affairs, the American Center for Law and Justice, take a look at our foreign policy team with also coarser Senior advisor Rick Cornell got the best foreign policy teams in the country. Absolutely folks support the work of the ACLJW donation are so important, so we can bring on these experts and bring them to you throughout our broadcast work with them doing today NACLJ ACLJ on the front lines of protecting your freedoms and 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 thanking God's well this is the perfect time to stand with us, ACLJ.org, where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today NACLJ live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and secular secularity or phone calls, one 800 684 31 to their second half hour of the broadcast review that covert relief to her brought that up. The idea that not as much attention on some of the issues that are now being stripped of the covert relief bill set $15 minimum wage which was kind of this Golden ticket item for the far left of the AOC's the world with the city parliamentarian said not the route you're going to admit it Washington DC because then you will get back to Syria will take the cause and that the airstrikes 164 31 1012 but covert calls as well covertly because Americans need the relief.

Yes and the Senate parliamentarian said you can't do the $50 minimum wage, the way you're pushing this through.

I want you to explain that because there's unique way to try to get this legislation done but yet the house is working to keep in it which means it will ultimately take longer for this relief, if ever, to get the American people. You will first of all, the $1400 in checks that were promised the American people would already be in their pocket to Pres. Biden and Senate Democrats. I decided work with Senate Republicans. There were plenty of votes in the United States Senate to pass that package.

The passive narrow covert relief package unit out the door quickly and then have some of these other fights, Senate Democrats with with Pres. Biden's blessing. Jordan decided to go another route they decided to use what's known as budget reconciliation, which is a process that can address budgetary items and can move through the Senate with only 50 votes, but you can only move items that are significantly budgetary in impact and it was very clear from the very beginning that a huge number of items that Speaker Pelosi was putting this bill, most notably the minimum wage increase that so many on the left wanted were not going to survive that process and that ruling officially came down from the Senate parliamentarian yesterday said Jordan.

You would think if they were trying to move this bill quickly since they hadn't taken that vote in the house yet, they would remove that language from the hospital in India that about tonight on the bill leaving that language in knowing that when it goes over to the Senate that language is gonna be stripped out. Georgia can't send a bill to the President for his signature.

If both chambers don't pass the same bill so you best case scenario, the sentence in a script that language passed the bill next week and then the following week. There can have to send it back to the house for another consideration they're not trying to get these checks out. Jordan they're trying to pass pet projects.

This is like gambling Harry with the American people's future. A lot of people need this relief absolutely with the Democrats persistently and consistently persists in advancing arbitrary and capricious policies to the detriment of the American people, primarily because Democrats I think at the end of the day do not really care about of the American people they care about advancing their own political power and the power of special interest groups who are pushing a radical agenda rather than providing real help to real Americans in need and basically helping rank-and-file Americans get through this crisis. The Democrats are not really interested in doing that any really quickly here.

This is they know the Democrats know this is and could happen.

This $15 minimum wage issue that can get through this. Like writing knowing you not to get a conviction way to put it manually when I die that I know that I have a pretty good chance of convicting the defendant why are you going in voting tonight. One of Donna bill of 1.9 or whatever. $3 trillion package that Biden puts doing your adding the $15 minimum wage. Knowing the parliamentarian and the Senate has ruled that you cannot back that on to the covert relief bill you know you can't do it. It's not visible under the budget rules is not germane and it cannot be tacked onto the to the covert relief bill but yet you forge ahead. And as Harry Hutchison said and he's usually right.

They don't care about the Democrats do not care about the American people. Their interest is in the hard left special input. We come back we want you to take your comments on Facebook, YouTube, get on the phones 100-684-3110 on this covert relief, how important would it be to you or your business to get this relief now or or have you gotten to the point where it just like you never expected to actually get there because of how Washington is operating even when Democrats control both the house and the syndicate in the White House hit get it figured out to get ahead put it impeachment the middle of 164. 31 table. The challenges facing Americans are substantial time and are now free to sort constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontlines projecting your freedoms and rights in courts in Congress and in the public and we have an exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do more work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member.

Thank you. Not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ God where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying 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 publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood. What Obama care me in many ways your membership is empowering the right question mission life today online/300 684 31 to talk to us on air. That's 100-684-3110 from over the covert relief because Outlook I'm concerned economically because I know this is taken I like every American you know that we were still dealing with covert looks like work because of the work of the previous administration President trumps ministration to the shots are out there. The vaccines are happening and starting to starting to get out there still a bit of a problem getting them but this is stuck in limbo. I mean this is and I want to go to Pharaoh.

This first because I want to hear from her audience. I mean those of you that have small businesses or maybe work for small business or have your own business houses impacting houses impacting with your and your job do you need this relief 800-684-3110 but then I don't understand what the parliamentarian said no you can't use this bill to basically put through a substantive different legislative piece.that would, in the equation, but in the house Democrats I know most of the stick it in there anyways like Jordan said no it's not getting it through well. Jay would've ended the discussion. If the goal was actually get the help that you're talking about out the door fit. If the goal is to get checks to the American people in assistance to small businesses that would've been the end of the discussion they would've knew the narrower bill that would a pastor through the Senate. But then again, they could've done that three or four weeks ago and they chose not to do this is about prioritizing their list of pet projects above that assistance and look in the list of things that we could talk about it so long. We talked about state and local bailout before can't think about this when jobs give you $130 billion in the house bill that is supposedly supposed to help schools open right that seemed like a noble goal. Schools need to reopen. There might be dollars necessary for that J only 5%. That hundred $30 billion is available for this year. The rest of it is for out your spending that is so ridiculous that's not covert relief. That's not getting schools reopen. That's just porkbarrel spending for out years of a J that is a higher priority right now for Democrats in Washington DC and getting actual covert stimulus out the door. John try to think why would. What's the advantage.

Now they know that's in the parliamentarian said no you can't do this. So what you say. Okay, let's just get we get relief to the American people here, let's get a legislative when thinking of your Democrat, what would you think let's get a big legislative when here. Get this through.

But they won't do it now any letter of face right help America's youth relief they need. That's it that's that's what we need, but instead their stock there stuck on the pet projects. Mike's coming from Pennsylvania about that. Hey Mike, welcome to secular I'm I think I think everything that are often so my question is about the $15 an hour minimum wage being raised. What happens to guys like me that I'm remaking $15 an hour and I went to college just to get paid that much and $50,000 in debt to do that. So like, are they planning you think these companies are divots rated the importance ditch people you ask a really good question concerning Harry Hutchison because part of the problem when you have a mandatory minimum wage increase. In some industries they can afford that, especially in the food industries absolutely so what typically happens is that you actually get a raise if the minimum wage goes up, so long as you keep your job.

But what we ignore often are the adverse implications of raising the mandatory minimum wage and typically people lose their jobs and some employers simply go out of business.

The other thing that happens, which reduces employment is the rise in robotics and automation and so now if you look at many restaurants throughout the United States.

What are they doing, they are having automation as opposed to actual individuals who are taking your order in the restaurant and so if you go to Panera bread or some other place. Guess what they are replacing individuals with technology and therefore they're not actually paying employees the so-called mandatory $15 an hour. In addition to all of that minimum wages tend to have an adverse affect on individuals, particularly minority individuals and people without a particular skill set and so at the end of the day as one left-wing Democrat said the Democrats are basically sending the signal to employers who cannot afford to pay $15 an hour. Please go out of business very very quickly.

I want to get the people help them because this is important letter that one of the prospects were really getting something done here all week with George that we look at another two weeks three week delay you're looking at two or three week delay J, I mean like I will I will give people the syllabi. I do think there is going to be a bill that passes out of Washington DC with that $1400 check migrate my great regret. Jason could happen a month ago but it's probably Kennedy close to another month, if not a little bit more before that's in the pockets of the American people. Here's the other thing, there there is to be unrelated items in this damage that they just committed themselves to. It's not the best way for it to happen but you give people some hope.

I do that check is coming days not coming as fast as it should have.

It's not coming as fast as there I think there was a moral obligation to get out the door it will lead eventually to leave with a lot of extraneous matters, but will get there eventually. Chris is coming from California on line 3 because it safely to set the levels, which is still being negotiated. Chris, welcome to secular you're on the air about untold relief when some of us really like myself. I haven't missed work like a pension.

There is still there welfare of their money still there. Why does it have to do we have to continue to pay people that haven't lost so everybody who is Working out. Then there are numbers on this right now. Is it still the 75,200 50,000. Thanks.

75,000 individual which I don't think they need to check if you're still making 35,000 was hurting the most in our country and if you're a couple and you're making six figures was hurting about your still take this like what you made before it's what you're making right now it's Christmas Day that's currently the bar fan and a lot of Republicans say this is a little too high yeah and it's not it's not set in stone. Either Jordan, but you're right, those of the levels right now be $1400 a person starting to phase out at about $75,000 and incompletely phasing out around 100,000 a look at me that there can be a fight over where those levels go, but again Jordan comes back to the fundamental principle that if you weren't wasting hundreds of billions of dollars on other things you could send bigger checks to more Americans.

So I think that's really the ideological debate that should be happening instead of the bickering about where the cutoff is and I was thinking about this, we mentioned that the go fund me campaign for that restaurant famous restaurant in Atlanta back a couple months ago. The fact is, while things are getting better.

They're not back to where they were, and certainly I saw the prognosis on overseas travel I was reading an article about that this morning saying admit it may return to where it was in 20 19 x 20 24, 2025.

That's a long time, but the stalling Congress is such a damage such a danger to the American people, and I will hear from you that are listening to broadcast at 800-684-3110 because we won't work. We may have to get to the next. We were just pushing to get things through aggressively on the hill made because I want to know what your needs are and we talked about that any people are neat. We know that that's really in need. I wonder that almost failed restaurant which was landmark in Atlanta for so many years in the go fund me help me help them substantially what I was talking to some of the personnel were working there and they said there really struggling right now.

The help that the waiters and waitresses and so poor that are helping in the restaurant are really struggling.

Their wages are down significantly, the denser down the restaurant is operating at 25% capacity. They desperately needed help and they don't need these games are being played by the Democrats in the eye and the House of Representatives, knowing that this bill is dead on arrival in the Senate, even though they vote on it tonight in the House of Representatives because of what the parliamentarian does.

We've got to help the people.

The Democrats supposedly the Democratic is the party of the people, the party of the working people. This is how they counted themselves from the Roosevelt administration on where is your help for the people. It's not there. Is this a big issue to 25 or six Cassie, I see time and not just the relief to individuals but to their businesses as well to assert their employees services, refer that's really really make the monies off the tips that they received from customers that your customers are down 25%. I will tell you, even where where we are, which is got higher capacity, both places require reservation or a weighty end of the week. If you don't make it like on a Monday or even two weeks out you can't get a spot.

And that's because of the it's not because the tables available to because with the staff that would like to work with because there there there only allowed so many people it even these larger restaurants, so it becomes a hassle for the consumer becomes tough on the employer, it becomes tough of the employees so everybody and then you hard for you to go hard for the employers to keep their staff in his heart of the ultimately, the employees who in his ministry have been killed a bit just destroyed and on top of that so many college students are not on the University campuses are not in class we met. We got to get a handle on this and I think you know I think we got the vaccine. This is a great thing when you get a better distribution method. I think it's improving. I hope it is. But we've got this economy can take two more years of this will talk about this answer your questions unless I'm coming up by don't say this you think I I say this and they cannot believe every morning when we wake up with the ACLJ and get our overnight. The response on various projects that were working on, and it's it's stunning and amazing actually and we want to thank you.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ secular serious try to talk to covert relief and I want to get to the fall 2000 684-3110 really going order people that have been on the line will start first with Mike in Missouri online to hey Mike, thanks Mike with the with raising the minimum wage. We know that a right right because they're not income for well you can spend more for product this little wage hike second through so I would like to clear people. He just got shut down. They would have to go through the separate and as a actual piece of legislation not to budget reconciliation so to get this minimum wage hike which they wanted over four years, which would kill jobs is already time for people of loss those jobs you believe that Ali would listen to fantasies like liberal commentators like these jobs are Artie gone anyways so it is said to set really hurt the economy that that so few of these jobs left. Well first of all, the impact of raising the minimum wage, a mandated raising the minimum wage during the CBO which is not exactly a conservative organization. They said it would cost 1.4 million jobs at that increase we go through and what was the response from Senate Democrats. Ron wine said okay that's fine will do it another way will just levy a heavy tax on these businesses that won't raise the minimum-wage, but look that's the doom and gloom Jordan, I think the optimistic Point is the one you just made the Senate partner Terry and said they can't do it under reconciliation, so it's not can be passed in this builder probably will be a debate Jordan but look that'll be a debate that'll take it after clear 60 vote threshold and will be a debate that has to again start anew and pass the house and the Senate right folks over to take your phone calls 164 3110 is 100-6431 10's Louis Colden from Colorado online.

For he Louis Y $15 everything else to bring to New York the tunnel in California money going overseas they didn't say anything about that.

That's built to be in this bill was a $50 wage, but this is been a huge criticisms of the entire coven relief.

They don't even call it that. It's now about rescuing America is bigger than covert.

That's how Democrats are trying to spit it so it's not just about covert relief though that's what it is supposed to be vapid, but I Louis is right. There's all this other poor kid there that's led even people like that Robbie. They say it's a clunker. This piece of legislation which is why it's hard to get through with reconciliation even Jordan only about 30% of this bill is actually related to covert and that portion had a wide bipartisan support. That's likely the past weeks and weeks ago. The rest of it somewhere around 70%. Depending on how you calculated is on unrelated stuff in the callers exactly right. I mean the minimum-wage is the provision that has run afoul of what's known as the bird provision they call it the birdbath of the door and a lot of the other stuff that does have a budgetary impact.

So technically, procedurally rules wise you can move in this package. A lot of it is just an absolutely terrible idea. I mean crushing to the economy. I think Jordan you know one of those ideas. I think I think it's worth mentioning this again we on this broadcast have advocated for federal dollars to help schools open many times before. Democrats are saying that's in the builders $130 billion in their Jordan again. The CBO took a look at it know how much of that hundred $30 billion can be spent this year to actually help us help schools open 5% 5%. The rest of it is for out. Here's a set project inside the education space. This is Annie.

This is exactly the problem when you have legislation that's not focused on solving the problem, but rather is a social agenda to for as Jordan said kind about national chains on other projects now beyond covert. This is where it gets very dangerous very quickly because nothing gets done but this is exactly what Harry had said the Democratic left our lab has a social agenda that they intend to pass and they're going to go no matter what happens, whether it's for the good of the American people are not. They already know it's for the good of the American people the elitists have made the decision that the 15 minimum wage is what it's going to be and no matter what happens, then they're going to persist in that knowing that Christensen them is not an event for that in the Senate nor the Joe mansion in a persistent and they get a blow from the parliamentarian in the Senate that says it's not germane but it doesn't in the in the house and it cannot be tacked on the coven relief legislation, but nonetheless they are persisting in their going through with.

No matter what they're going both the Senate over to the Senate where it's dead on arrival. Meanwhile, what happens to the servers at the colonnade restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia, or any other place you did this again brings all these different stories and all the stupid spending does actually ever get out the American people is also crappy thing you brought to title title X plus is up as well and explain people what's going on there lawsuits going on there about whether or not Planned Parenthood should get funding again and Planned Parenthood is being joined by the Biden administration. Even though title X funding says no funding to abortion providers yet though the loss is no funding to abortion providers. We thought that over the years we've been winning the Trump administration was very effective in applying the law and essentially what it meant. Jordan is that the law was rightly applied and Planned Parenthood was deprived of about $60 million a year that they were not entitled to under the law. I Jordan this covert bill actually attempts to plus up the title X account by a $50 million amount and and look I think this is transparent, that they may or may not tell you this but I can tell you why.

That, plus up is in there that's a prorated payment to Planned Parenthood for what they lost under the trumpet ministration there trying to move that inside a couple covert stimulus package.

You tell me Jordan, what does $50 million for Planned Parenthood. Had it have to do with covert relief is $50 million and Planned Parenthood Harry have to do with opening up public schools that need to be open for the kids to be served, absolutely nothing, but I think the real problem is the Democrats they prioritize union leaders, rather than union members. They prioritize the radical left and eugenics supporters rather than the American people and at the end of the day they prioritize global elites rather than putting America first and I think that the whole issue here is exactly what Jesus is all about getting it to their friends and allies. How much can we go out millions and millions and billions of dollars to our friends and allies as businesses and organizations.

We like. So it Planned Parenthood.

Of course there all the back pocket play.

We have even gotten to have the air of the stairs nomination to lead HHS yet today but guess what, like candid nomination which is in doubt. Now his is facing sums some uncertainty fan because you know that we all know that because he could've had the vote today and they picked it's in sometime next week.

Having the scheduler that means that while he went through two hearings today. We obviously weighed in opposition to a lucky ease is absolutely terrible on the life issue, but Jane Jordan. The reason his nominations is in trouble in the United States Senate with people like Joe mansion in Kiersten Cinema and Bob Casey because he doesn't have a lick of public health experience in the middle of a pandemic you're going to nominate a secretary to Department of Health and Human Services had a leading role in trying to pull us out of the coven pandemic. Not a lick of public health experience. That's why his nominations in jeopardy. In the United States and I'll just tell you is nominations should be rejected.

He could not be the next next secretary would be them in court. But you know what the Supreme Court, but it was on an issue where he was trying to force abortion clinics to provide to tell people to go get abortions. This is the head of HHS. Maybe not.

While I think that lesson I think it's it's a there are people that we see we have a 50-50 city fight fight for somebody's who are Twitter trolls to fight the nominees who are pro-abortion advocates a seer with no experience during a pandemic would criticize A's who darted to the deputy HHS direct counsel for he wasn't good enough for the left seer.

Certainly, as it has no experience to who was leading under the trumpet ministration will talk about ACLJ on the front lines, 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.
