ACLJ files of the Supreme Court to fight back against cancel yes US Supreme Court just live from Washington DC line phone lines are questions right now as you open it will be joined again of IRAs will JRC your counsel for global affairs Mike Pompeo be joining us live the next over the broadcast. We talked about cancel culture in this idyllic cancel cultures now and you heard it right in the open at the US Supreme Court. Let me explain why the current nominee to be HHS Sec. the course the radical left Atty. Gen. of the state of California Javier Becerra in California, which also similar to New York, and Hawaii's the only three states require nonprofit organizations from out of a political campaigns but nonprofit organizations to disclose donors to the state that does not mean public disclosure is not supposed to mean public disclosure but when California began requiring this disclosure to the state they did. They had no confidentiality law in place that actually is college students, part-time workers, people, so people on contract to set up but that the filing system and it was immediately hacked is the right word. Accessed and people who donated the groups that were conservative started getting attacked pup personally.

Well that's what happens.

You have the personal attack on individual donors and then the threat to the organization survival itself. Yes what you got. This is again another example of the cancel culture. While I say that well if you can attack the donors of the organization which we saw unless Presidential like cycle. There was a lot of that going on. You can then impact the organization and that's precisely exactly what the intent is and that's why anonymous pamphlets hearing as it used to be called is as old as the Constitution itself anonymous, giving for the same reason. And while there are some exceptions when it comes to election laws. So that's what they're talking about campaign committees. Committees the idea that in a general nonprofit organization that you have to start disclosing the names of your donors. Those people that like to associate with you is constitutionally protected raises a serious serious constitutional issue. Now, the Department of Justice, in this case was previously on our side. We filed a brief in a back molding a copy of the brief right here for our television audience is watching on Facebook or YouTube ratio J.org or rumble wherever you watch us plenty be they not withdrawn that support, not what they filed another brief in opposition, but again this is. This gives ammunition to the cancel culture.

It allows the cancel culture to reach the next level by saying that we can target these individual donors. That's the idea what's going on here and and we've got a fight back on this because it's not just protecting the donors protecting the organization to yeah exactly right means. This is against cancel cultures before the US report we filed briefing and this is what they see LJ because it is so important. What is the status to require these kind of disclosures there supposed to be private.

The captain have no system for confidentiality can have systems to get hacked and do nothing about it. Understand California didn't say oh we messed up. Sorry. Working to create a better system. They are fighting back. And this is the nominee to BH that the HHS Sec. if the Atty. Gen. California Javier Becerra who is fighting back there not saying oh sorry we made a mistake by allowing people to access this data there saying that we don't have to have a confidentiality rule, we can admit we don't have to keep all the so private will have to have this in secure servers like a tax return even though that's what it's on the disclosure is like a text and that's supposed to be public so this idea you were going to let donors be threatened to groups. I just want liberals out there think about this. Think about unpopular movements that started in California, it became acceptable nationwide. Whether you're talking about maybe gay rights movement, or now the trans movement. If those owners were all made public. 20 and 30 years ago they would've been harassed.

Unfortunately, there's people out there bad actors who don't want to just understand this could be speech. They like and speech they don't like we never would endorse the harassment of each of anybody for for speech. They make and causes that they support. They have the right to do that so I think is a double edge sword as well and we need to protect donors and protect his organizations right to resist coming back alive with Mike Pompeo as the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom detecting those who are persecuted for their faith. Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and your family. You forgive today online and see LJ only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn, called mission life will show you how you are personally support the publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists. The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the worship ministry and what Obama care means to the pro-life in many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to life question free copy mission life today online and see LJ/back to secular. The newest member of our team.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered major speech at sea pack and has been a very outspoken about the future of conservatism, as he said unleashed now that he is no longer of the top diplomat for country. He is the senior counsel for ACLJ's global affairs Sec. Pompeo's great to have you on secular.

It's great to be with Dan Gregory Martin were further here.

Let me read something for from you that is now posted@ourwebsiteandaclj.org and it says where liberals look to exert authority and since our speech in all forms of communication. We must probably champion free speech on all platforms where liberals seek to close down places of worship across America. We must resist such that such attempts to inhibit or prohibit free exercise of religion. In short, we must demonstrate a resolute commitment to our founding principles every day. It seems the left is claiming another victim of cancer culture. Yesterday was Dr. Seuss how dangerous is it that propounding principles that are at stake here and my question to you is you and talk about founding principles, how dangerous is it to those very founding principles of freedom of speech and freedom of association J strikes at the very heart of who we are as Americans that are founding understanding of American central greatness of the United States depends upon having every voice be heard to you and Erica like some of you disagree with them sharply to the end of the day.

America must not allow this cancel culture to take light sleep. We watch the last three years, claimed that they were the ones for progressiveness than wide-open spaces and free thought. It turns out that they have power to shut us down the will close this out though I cancel us strikes at the very nature of our nation, and is a real threat.

I've argued many times the Supreme Court on this issue. I said you know that the answer to speech you disagree with is not censorship. It's more speech and speech from the other side. And as you said Mr. Sec., that there's any space we don't like this and we speech, we disagree with. But that's the price of freedom, living in a free society during you and I think the one thing we wanted to.

I would talk about you two was this idea that because you are no one in the Secretary of State you could let it rip at sea pack. The idea of how you see the conservative movement moving forward. As a former Congressman and former director, the CIA former Secretary of State but also as a conservative leader, as were those leaders moving forward as it while were still unified to take back the house. The Senate and then ultimately of the White House in 2024.

I talked about this in my remarks seatback was a great audience. It was a great weekend for the conservative movement is alive as well.

To be successful like that.

The predictions of the death are grossly premature. It's built on the things we all know it's built on religious freedom is built on the family is better than understanding that matters and that we ought to create a nation where everybody who wants to work at opportunity to detonate a work in a job they can be proud of. It is noble, they can take care of their own families. These central understandings combined with that a strong national defense.

Built on central understanding that we should always care of America first.

Those are the pillars of the conservative movement. They have been for an awfully long time people showed up in Orlando this past weekend could see that could feel that they heard from leaders you are prepared to go move this cost forward, you know, we've heard lesson on broadcast wasn't. We talked about this issue of trade and the issue with China you address this at your see specs seatback speech as well and in your article is posted by the way@aclj.org. It's entitled highlighting the victories we achieve for life and liberty, preparing to stand up to the challenges ahead part of the challenges, jobs and job creation which under the your administration was was great under the Trump administration which you served to such high-ranking positions. You said the hallmark in the article. He said the hallmark of our work here in America was that we were bold and fearless. They said what I hear today I hear Democrats pretend they care about jobs in America but before the seats were born in the Oval Office. They destroyed 10,000 jobs in the pipeline and that was of course the Keystone pipeline. So where does that leave us and then the follow-up questions can be how do we get it back. So where does that leave us right now as you view it on the job situation and with China. They go hand in hand.

I am afraid that this administration is going to allow the Chinese Communist Party to do what it had done for an awfully long time was to come to United States steel or intellectual property along with it.

Millions and millions and millions of really good jobs paid really well.

All throughout the United States of America.

I will leave us less prosperous of the minute kids and grandkids don't have to lifestyles that we want them to have to be able take care of their families and I watched what every single nominee from this administration talk about climate change and we want to save drinking water. We want clean air just like anyone doesn't like indeed everyone desk can't do that on the back of the American worker. You can sign some crazy parents, climate targets can benefit China heart America and think for a moment you're doing the right thing for our country so that the Keystone pipeline is just one simple example environmental stop that this ministration is going to shut down the throats of Americans over the coming years will be monstrous and portly really really bad for ordinary working people all across the United States. One of the other things Mike is that people we like to give hope on wheat we would point out the problems we like to point out solutions. We talk about jobs and job creation.governors can play a big role in that too narrow a Republican governor so we can't just rely in Washington for job creation, especially right now. Governors across America. Conservative governors across America. Start to see it is our governor abducted down in Texas this weekend.

He said enough back to work this thing back up after that cover 19 virus is that now run its course, you will see governors you will see people in County Commissioner Josie small business people all across America continue to resist with this administration is doing and we sought for eight years under Barack Obama. I ran for Congress in 2010 because of executives I was running a small operation Kansas and I could see the devastation that the federal government was reaching on small manufacturing companies like mine will we will prevail will get people back to work 2022 Internet to be a very important year for the American people speak about what matters most of them only its domestic issues and and domestic and sense of immigration issues, and second, but we now seen another strike. It looks like from in retaliation to the US strike that you talk about that you hoped it wasn't just that kind of like a strike into the desert and that would that retaliation for the strike on on our US troops and I that killed one of those contractors now another contractor has been killed by looks like what appears to be a retaliatory strike is is there a tit-for-tat problem you seasick to Pompeo that occurring now between the US and Iran because I are in are they like to say Ronnie and you know that there their proxies but we know it's directly run by the Iranian Revolutionary guard. This is almost certainly arrive. One of the things that we were very focused on was avoiding tit-for-tat was going back and forth with some militiamen hanging out in the desert who undergoes real cost on progenitor of the problem of the person creating the problem that was Uranian leadership is that we made very clear that we were just can accommodate proxy forces which oppose almost no customer. If you do that, just go back and forth Americans American contractors market service minute risk and imposes no cost on the rains.

I hope this administration will figure out targeting real action action we took to kill Constance Alani as an example, the irradiance will respect that and it'll deter their continued activity, follow-up on the situation in Iran and II have the follow-up because my concern and it's it's a general concern that the minor ministrations has said early on, since birthday they were in office.

Maybe the first day in office that they want to go back to the table on the JCP away and then about two weeks afterwards they said well we spoiled you want to go back to the table but let's be clear, they're not in compliance. We know they're not in compliance not raise this issue and it's not abstract anymore. The Europeans have been in the JCP away with the Iranians for a couple of like five years now we are right, everybody knows the Iranians are not in compliance with or violating the terms of the partners that they have in this agreement that would be the I the Europeans. Why in the world. We think now that we enter back in there and do anything but continue to violate those very terms there's literally no reason to believe anything but like terms Jay is crazy to think that you can go back to the JCP away. Her huge wealth transfer from the West from the United States and Europe to Iran is the nuttiest idea that the ministrations clipboard so far in foreign policy and conceited is not the right answer.

So far their entreaties when they reached at the ranges that we want to deal he really said no deal give us more concessions and they keep doing that. I spent the raise will resist going back in the negotiation delegate mingling that they want to wait weakness begets weakness J and weakness demonstrated irradiance will begin a really bad deal for the American people and for our friends in Israel by our office in Jerusalem play such a crucial role in the region because said the Israelis are now in because of the work center. Pompeo and Pres. Trump. The Israelis are now in very good relations with a lot of majority Muslim countries in the gangs forcing the Gulf region but also in Jordan and Egypt, Saudi Arabia, even and I will tell you this, the Iranian threat is it is a regional threat to global threat, but it's a regional threat night that my view is really getting compliance and hopefully we can keep restaurant to get the right hearings in the Senate, we can avoid that.

With that we appreciated Mr. secretaries great to have you as part of the team. Great to have you here. The article is up@aclj.org. It's entitled highlighting the victories we achieved for life and liberty, preparing to stand up to the challenges ahead will be sending that out on all of our platforms again of former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, senior counsel for global affairs at the ACLJ. Thanks for being with us your your of one reason why we are able to put together this team at the ACLJ to include some former secretary of state Mike Pompeo's and ACLJ senior counsel senior counsel ACLJ is because your financial support of the American surfline just weave a matching challenge month.

Only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable and is there any hope for that culture to survive.

We've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn, called mission life will show you how you are personally pro-life and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases 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 in many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to life question for copy mission life today online ACLJ/the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who are persecuted for their faith.

Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that.

We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge today make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and your family.

Give a gift today online ACLJ singularity, your phone calls 100-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110 consecutive or those drawn by Richard by Sec. Pompeo and we are talking with him and we talked about the first segment. This cancel culture case at the US Supreme Court. So were to get into that one second half hour.

That is, it might be kind of surprising to hear how was that the US Supreme Court but is exactly what is at the US Supreme Court using the oldest of the oldest tricks in the books to try and cancel out supporters of specific movements that we arty know in it in our country disclosure.

If you donate $150 to a political candidate or a political campaign committee that gets disclosed ultimately but that that's that's that's one thing with FEC loss. But if you support your the ACLJ or C4 organization. It's not disclosed anything if the state there are three states that require what supposedly this disclosure to certain amount of gifts and it's only California, New York and Hawaii. Surprise, surprise, require this senseless Republic from California. They think they they required this disclosure built was unsecure. Webb's insecure website and then people started getting harassed in California is not saying they're going to do better this thing. What we don't have to actually keep any of these donations private for to get to this in the second half are the broadcast to really get that into it because it involves Javier Becerra current elf got California Atty. Gen. who's up for the nomination at HHS, which is right on the edge of the second nomination that could be defeated by the by nomination like that whole left pro-abortion nominee that Joe Biden could put could basically that position yet insightful get into that in the second about yes at, but you were just talking with Sec. Pompeo.

We want to update you because we went right to submit happened last night. It was reported another attack on a US base a US civilian contractor is dead. I suffered a cardiac event and probably likely related to the rockets were fired onto this process base right outside Baghdad northwest of Baghdad appears to be a Sec. Pompeo symbols certainly Iranian link group, you know, some kind of proxy group is they call the media because it will ever directly link it to Iran and what will the US response.

P and I talked with Sen. Pompeo that is that this tit-for-tat response essay you what you do this work in a responsible heavy and killed Slavonic written. I take out your top leader registered a fire abounds underfoot. Was it doing right now though it were that dangerous tit-for-tat which get you back in a long scale conflict element go to Carla Smith on this because I think this is something we gotta we gotta get out wrap our heads around that theirs is talk Wes about you know the by ministration initially said we want to get back into the table discussions with the Iranians on the JCP away that this was the nuclear agreement they so-called nuclear agreement.

The fact is that Europeans of technology and by ministration is no knowledge of the Iranians are not in compliance with the agreement that we pulled out the United States but there were a lot of European countries that are in it and they still were not in compliance and then they do these missile launches. So what is the message they're trying to say and what should not.

What are Biden responses. What should our responses be weakness actually invites more aggression and that the Biden policy. Thus far, of trying to make nice and you were that were the good people the guys of the white has when it comes to our Ron is backfiring is not only a flawed policy J is a dangerous policy and back to the G JCP away that this so-called Iran nuclear deal. It was weak to begin with and even though it is weak to begin with. The Iranians are now violating that week agreement. So now it's a little crazy and in St. they are testing Job idea. This is the second attack and deliver two weeks and I thought it was interesting. This last attack, which was an herb deal which is the northern part of a wreck with the Kurds are that that's where the rocket attack came from to attack troops in that region of the country. What the Biden administration did was to fire rockets at a totally different militia across the border in Syria. Part of what Jordan is saying just for the tit-for-tat this this fire a few missiles into the desert somewhere to show them were serious. That does not show them that we are serious and again that weakness invites further aggression. One other personal thing. J. And this is strictly personal because I spent 26 years in the Army. My question is why do we still have troops there. We invaded Iraq 18 years ago this month and March 2003. My question is why are my brothers and sisters and arm still there and if they are there in being attacked. Why are we not attacking vigorously and you know present from to the big draw down but they didn't not eliminate all the many any race you raise a real point. But there's another point in this in this the historical point in the historical point isn't that Benjamin Disraeli famously said that it was dealing with some of these countries and stealing the Russians you still imitate what they understand power. That's what they understand is that is no negotiating without power. Naked got our you could negotiate but any the lack of power or lease what you're projecting from this administration. The lack of power is very damaging because that region is notorious for taking advantage of that wheat.

We know that region folks. We've all spent a lot of time there. We got an office in Jerusalem. Everybody on this in the studio today has done a lot of work in the Middle East and negotiated very high levels.

If you have any knowledge of history. If you have read any history book beginning beginning before on the history of the region in the Middle East before the time of Christ.

During the time of the Persians and the Greeks during the time of the that the wars you would know that there is only one way that the middle Easterners understand negotiation and it is not sitting down at a table in some palace adverse side working out a treaty and sitting down and negotiating like you know the Western civilization has led us to believe it is the on and as questioned exercise of force and power tit-for-tat attacks.

We bombs in the desert, then the we the Iranians turnaround through their proxies and hit the and outside the airbase northwest of Baghdad with 10 rockets causing an American death indirectly and then we as Americans are going and saying to the Iranians come back and talk to us again and let sit down around the table like civilized Westerners. That's the mentality that the Biden administration is using and try to sit and work this thing out is ridiculous. One thing we learned that Oxford J from a professor who is knowledgeable in the region was, there is only one way to deal with that Irani and that mentality that Middle Eastern and that is to kill them. If you have troops there troops are trying to kill you've got to exercise power in the most egregious and powerful way, not in this half measure of tip for dad but be serious about your retaliatory capacity is not just as having power is the willingness to use that power and they doubt this it ministration has the willingness to use it. I think they enjoy. And that's the biggest take away as they doubt the administration would use the pallet power other than throwing a couple missiles into the middle of the desert because they're not worried about the schedule character for children killed or aliens get killed at the right so that doesn't impact them.

They don't beer but they they went they will respond with another response with another small-scale rocket attack, they do respond is when you cut them off economically cripple them economically and cripple the nuclear program with viruses and use by you of that intake at the head of their terror organization and moneymaker the Revolutionary guard who has never been fully replaced and in a significant way. Suman, that's a respond. If that is proportional will will do this because they'll do this in the please Iranians come to the table to negotiate with us. They say no because renting a wreck to do anything or change anything to you with all sanctions and what you think. Eventually, the Biden ministration as it worries me is they will also deliver this the same guy was now the national security advisor right that was eating without within the shot 2012. The right the nuclear deal right back on second, the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate will be managed $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in the one who knew protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you and your family. Give a gift today online ACLJ.live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow live in now secular backward to your phone calls 164 30 1/10. One issue we discussed earlier, the broadcast and which a solution with Sec. Pompeo's careful culture that everyone site map, but it's actually at the US Supreme Court's records granted to it to hear case at a California section 2 different cases. What California did this nonprofit organizations that were not in a political campaign to say you got disclose your donors to us and and when they built the system in California. I liked only two other states require this.

The IRS is not the federal government does not require this of any kind of charitable organizations, C-3, C4, etc. they do require the federal level, New York, California, who I do California set up the system these kids to do and content of college students contract workers. No security or security and of course the system they call it hacked and I think that's what technically you would say it was under the law. It was accessed not necessarily legally but there's also no protections stopping anybody from getting to this website to find out this information is had to go looking for that here. When that was pointed out to California and people started getting harassed because of the donations they made a surprise surprise, California to subscribe to conservative groups California sale.

We we messed up yesterday disclose it to the statement is a specific that's not supposed to be disclosed to the public. We messed up or to build a better system. No, they're fighting now this report to say they wanted the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, we can actually don't have to protect this information like a tent like a tax return would be.

Even though that's part of the tax return itself at the state level.

So we have filed a man made a major amicus brief, that's friend of the court and we are briefer read and our breaks have been quoted often by the Supreme Court in its opinions on this.

Let me read you two sections of what were saying because I think it sets forth what were talking about here. There's a standard in law called exacting scrutiny. Strict scrutiny and we are saying that that is inadequate to protect against killing the chilling of First Amendment association rights you the right under the First Amendment freedom of association. That means you can collect together including fund funding as we do here at the ACLJ and advocate positions and you're not required to disclose it because it's even anonymous pamphlet tearing at the founding of our country.

They would use pseudonyms or they would just be anonymous, including Federalist papers. By the way, initially, so I may just have all of this in our history of nondisclosure, because it would chill First Amendment rights, and then we said strict scrutiny review is necessary to forestall further chilling of First Amendment association right from the dramatic increase in retaliation against those with disfavored political views and you can easily assert religious views and Andy. It is as old as our countries history. It is J absolutely the idea that you have to disclose the name of somebody who is a donor to a cause that in his heart or her hard in their conscience. They believe to be the case is inviting them to become targets of attack.

That's simply what it is they are in DIF. I want to donate to a religious organization if I want to donate to an ideological cause if I want to donate to the ACLJ or any group like that. That is like we are who espouses conservative causes and I have to disclose my name as a donor you're saying to me, put me on the chopping block. Look at me and ran at me and target me just as we did, just as I did with the IRS with a target in the exempt organizations and this is absolutely ridiculous me and horrible. This will be individual targeted now we don't have to do that at the ACLJ because we were structured and also you have to hit this 2% requirement would be that it is. May we filed in this because we know what this is going to do this is going to stifle free speech and freedom of association and let me tell you what we need to hunt we need to respond to this are Supreme Court team because of the American Center for Law and Justice. We have a Supreme Court team.

What is that mean these are lawyers that primary focus of their practice is just the Supreme Court that's what they do.

All this is the linchpin in all of his hobby or Becerra who just before we went on air was voted out of committee in a tie vote, so he did it. I was unlike any Republicans. No Republicans of the committee support his nomination a bit now moves to the floor of the U.S. Senate.

Now this is the second Biden nominee. This was gotten past the committee level after 10 and who was pulled near Tampa's nomination got pulled to be the officer major budget director. This is the second one is facing serious opposition were publicly opposing hobby or Becerra at the at the Mercer fly just beat him by four times in this request, but it's because he is extremely ravening.

He's at the linchpin of this case involving disclosure yet not cancel culture for the report. Who are they suing it it's hobby or Becerra and the Atty. Gen. of California. It was terrible on the pro-life crisis pregnancy centers trying to have them in the Lord of works that abortions and hours and be in charge of it. You take a listen. Jim Saki gets asked specifically about the conscience rights of doctors in the rule without rules are key because rules about loss. That's not rules can be changed by the executive leaders issue if he was to become the HHS Sec. understand rules are different, the laws take a listen for the divide and keep the conscience and related training division that HHS is the President from place to receive conscience complaints from the detective future secretary Becerra went to be a question you can answer before he's confirm that this is another one is right on the line confirmation committee for he's not to keep that office.

He doesn't care about conscience protections. He doesn't care what the lives this is the poor and care about you if you want to sue the trust administration over exempting the little sister for right. He's the this is what he did his estate as state leader Atty. Gen. I that were the middle pandemic and he has no health care expenses were to the pharmaceutical company I that Dr. not none at all is a radical leftist and what were seeing from the also other nominees at HHS of proposed radical ideas we can give the tire shows about this so for his deputies. They are trying to make it again, a highly one of the most highly put politicized government departments made by putting in these radicals so we had 180,880 signatures to stop the nomination of a Mr. Becerra and I want to go right to fan Bennett are director of governmental affairs and find out exactly where it is now we know stand that it has cleared committee right so it's gotten out of the committee. Where is it now in process. Well first on process J cleared committee made it clear as Jordan mentioned by a tie vote. 14 Democrats voted to report him out of committee. All 14 Republicans by the way, including some very nominally pro-life Republicans voted to oppose him and here's why. J if you showed hobby or Becerra's resume to just about any Democrat voter in the country they would conclusively tell you that he is not qualified to lead a department of Health and Human Services in a time of pandemic is that no medical experience. Why in the world would you pick that nominee. But here's the answer. J he was picked to be the Sec. of HHS for all of the reasons that you and Jordan are talking about because he is sold out and dedicated to a radical view on abortion in life. The Democrats in Washington DC are afraid to oppose him. But here here's where I would hearken back to when Jordan talked about the nomination of near and near tan into the office of management and budget as she had to be withdrawn because Joe mansion and Kiersten Cinema were not likely to support her and he/she was knocking to pick up a single Republican vote. J we are on the cusp of that being the same situation for hobby or Becerra his nomination J literally hangs by a single vote in the United States Senate, Harry the policy director policy is the policy that Becerra has put forward, whether compelling pro-life pregnancy centers crisis pregnancy centers to put up referral for abortion compelled speech or compelling the disclosure of donors to private organizations.

This is what we have to look forward to if he was the Sec. of HHS you are absolutely correct. So it's very very important to note that Shara is really a social justice warrior.

Such warriors believe that the nuclear family. For instance, is the font of human oppression. So ultimately, individuals like the Shara members of the black lives matter group. They are any aiming verifier at the nuclear family and one of the keys to sustaining the nuclear family is the birth of children and so I think it is very very clear beyond question that the Shara has gained his fire at the pro-life movement. That's number one. Then number two. The sheriff is aimed his fire at any political organization that opposes the left so the radicals have an agenda and the agenda is grounded in one thing that Nietzsche pointed out, it's all about the pursuit of unlimited power in the pursuit of unlimited power is incompatible with the constitutional democracy, and I was in and I was in the assets to Andy Jordan wanted and I think you can respond this to be limited and quickly first and that is it so anti-constitutional positions that Becerra has is advocated the disclosure of anonymous donations, which is goes as old as our country. The idea that you would compelled speech of a pro-life organization to refer to abortions and others forced compulsiveness between Supreme Court time and time again in these very cases. We had two of them at the Supreme Court struck down, but this is the postures he's bringing to you was as dad said he be bringing to HHS about this in person. First of all we and we have to say is is as fan you mentioned, to take his resume and show it to anybody and ask should he be the head of Health and Human Services is not a doctor is not a physician or in a time of serious crisis in pandemic people out of work. People are waiting to get shots and here's a person you know make them head of the Health and Human Services department United States government.

That's number one. Secondly, he has oppose. For example, and lied about it, the Little sisters of the poor Little sisters of the poor and what they did and then trying to oppose their activities and when Sen. Sasso tried to question him about that and we have that soundbite he will gave her my just a bunch of bureaucratic doubletalk look this is the most dangerous nominee that Pres. Biden has put forth in a position of extreme power in the federal government head of an agency that is crucial here in this white guy and your time a bit excessive play for people to. There were it was just absurd. It this was the state leading the charge. If the trumpet ministration trying to fix the issue The poor, dealing with for years on on the Obama care, trying to apply to nuns on requiring them to have abortifacients and contraception to a group of nuns bite 30. Why do we know why is he being nominated because he is waged a cultural force that is who he is.

That's what he's done.

He is a nasty track record of targeting the First Amendment and he got in the confirmation hearing last week, I could ask the guy five different times what the Little sisters of the poor dead wrong connected to your suits against the federal government were only targeting the Little sisters of the poor's religious exemption. Why did you do this and he literally answer the question five times with nothing but bureaucratic runaround stop in this essay we were getting from Jean Saki is now what he think that that's weird.

This existing agency that was set up within the agency by the trumpet ministration is Democrat nominates fair game to ask you keep that that's that conscience center that was set up by the trumpet ministration or not. And she wanted she would examine the answers and ask him. She says you can ask him after he's confirmed. Let let me tell you this multi-my head is just a sample of briefs that we have filed against Javier Becerra at the Supreme Court of the United States and there's a new one that I'm not holding up right now which is because I'm reading from it and that's this cancer culture brief, so this tells you what were dealing with the fan as we get ready to close assignment by way next I will take your calls and 800-684-3110. But as we close this segment out wit how do you think it plays out to me. I know it's very close yeah boy been reported at a command that tie voted you to be voted on the floor of the Senate very soon, Jay. I think probably middle of next week.

That's why Jordan is preparing to send a letter to every Senate office opposing his nomination. And like I mean, he might be a natural fit for some other job where a career politician is the qualifications you need, but he just doesn't have the public health experience and I thought the sound that you played from the Sen. was very telling your dictate that this is why he was picked because they want as well as a plant that I understand all that but I think your audience to know it to be a really close vote in the United States Senate. How do you think it goes or is it too early to tell it its razor close to he's getting it somewhere between 48 and 52 votes to be confirmed and he needs 50+ a tie-breaking vote from the vice President as a like I gather any Republicans likely will form you do have to pay attention to Murkowski and Collins.

I do not think Jay that they are to support his nomination, but we have not heard conclusively so I do not want to write an offset amount not try to distract not try to cross-examine here but what about cinnamon math and you, you've nailed the four Jay those are the four we don't know. I expect the other 96 will be 48 to 48. Those four votes day will determine whether or not he's the next secretary folks is a good reason George and I had to do to support the work of a sale check.

You see, every issue we discussed were actually doing something about me both silly silly soothing but you also to say like when you come that say that we don't want it to get the job. Put your name on it.

Used to tell us it is the is a group is an organization are saying to not give him this job don't allow them to have this position. We we immediately take that action.

You forgive today online ACLJ hundred 684 30 what if you want to be on the broadcast can call it right now the only hundred 684-3110 difficult for Italy. A Gina call you to the people listening is a faith because a YouTube all of you court not just listing on terrestrial radio which most of our audience on Sirius XM the people, what have your Facebook, YouTube, through ACLJ.org able to reach the whole world. He, Gina, welcome to secular you're on the air like I form a Californian American living here in Italy where conservative values are appreciated.

My question is if dictate to that US action against Syrian's missile strikes. I find it very strange is also on topic with the analysis you've given on 10 sake she formerly worked in the capacity at the Pentagon as an advisor and settle the American people are only told of these missile strikes came day following.

I learned about it on French 24 seven English needed here near I'm very well aware that it questioning her. Do you think that the missile strikes on Syria way and actual guidance move to show you can't find Russia based on Russia's support. The cost of the response was so tempted that actually think with Israelis quote I used earlier. Gina was involving etiquette that was involving Russia and he said the only thing they will understand his force and that is not force. I mean, that's not power they needed. These little Reno markers in the sand, which is literally what they are.

You saw the video of what they shot at. I mean it was ridiculous. However, having said that, look, this is the policy we gotta combat the policy, we gotta be able to speak out against the policy and we had to be very very cautious and lease administration.

So far I'm I've been a little bit feeling a little bit better. Likely that they pulled back from this running into the JCP away because Iran did. Yes, only because Iran and will they want to run back in the war's. It is interesting that we shifted in the country to completely shift to political parties where it's Washington that runs the Democrat party still Republican parties were taken by the outsiders.

We talk that's a right record. Now those outsiders are not like that anti-if there's a military action needs to be taken to take it.

So take absolute money hundred Tomahawk missiles. That's what shows that rationale is to rush the weekly told the Russians before they came.

By the way were about the 500 Tomahawk missiles that you so get your guys have a way that shows power. That's power enforced with the Chinese from present sitting next year right was done was he sitting next to the table. I would tell tempted that what doesn't show the force is his rib so River.

The Democrats are still controlled by Washington, which makes a lot of money off war this contractor zip others. All of our aircraft companies that meet the sleep that they do great job a civilian work. I'm not trying to make a lot of money when they need to build more missiles and when they need to build more armor and they need to build more ships and double ended such a single rebuilder military, which we did right, but then you can also use all those assets and he got it you don't do it again so you have to units. Washington versus the rest of us on this and in an area it's it's using the assets. I think, and I want your view of this, what is your view of the utilization of our assets when it comes to dealing with. For instance, Iran, or Syria will I think we should use our military assets sparingly but forcefully and what the Democrats are doing is precisely the opposite. They are focused on creating long-term conflict, which employs large numbers of Washington consultants is a Jordan correctly points out, and these moves are strongly supported by establishment individuals and there's a bipartisan establishment. For instance, that includes Liz Cheney who seems to push for global establishment supported wars that are in less that never ran right so we are still in Afghanistan.

We are still in Iraq and so the question becomes, when will we stop shedding American blog in order to make profits for defense contractors and consultants and sentence by Pompeo said this in a speech see Peg retiring earlier today.

Take a listen by three way to spend a lot of time we defended America in the Middle East defended Israel the Middle East. Still, we what we were told a number of things establishment for the offenses were told you can't sanction Ayatollah in Iran and he can't stop sending out suggestive leadership more what we did and I was in war and that's because a new approach with the new policy actually worked in. That's what you had the Golan Heights recognized as part of his sovereignty in the United been there.

We Jerusalem was recognized as the capital of course we been there course is the capital show and then the other countries because of the common enemy with Iran engaged with Israel. Yesterday was the show of force, the show of determination. The show persistence by Pres. Trump in the previous administration that made these things come. Look, you've got to read history, folks you do not deal with people in the Middle East.

Tepidly you deal with them only through the use of power and force, and show them that you're serious about what your policy is you've got to do that by being positive with them. Tit-for-tat missile attacks and playing around like that does not do it. They have to be confronted with the power of the United States of America wheels in our coalitions and so forth. And that is not what Pres. Biden is doing in my opinion it's a tit-for-tat fearful attack. We don't want to upset them.

We don't want theory and Iranians to get angry with us and walk away from the from the come conference table on this nuclear enrichment program.

Why not who cares not going to send them pallets of caches where as the secretary Pompeo said. And then if you don't do that there's going to be a war is not gonna be a war there wasn't a war we've got to be positive in our approach and forceful, the Glasscock eschaton in California. This is on the code relief also very important that with Anderson atoll welcome to secular you're on their thank you so much for taking my call. I really appreciate you guys you guys are terrific. Absolutely terrific question: relief valve you think of a pass because even though that the $15 an hour minimum wage, very bad. There is an element in there that I know you know about Nexus pension relief and rescue part of this bill. There's 1,000,000 1/2 pension like myself with enterprise import employer pension plans and there ready to go belly up.

Let's go writers were anti-merely get you and still write to Dan Bennett on what is the latest on this yet. Some are getting a lot of that answer both today and tomorrow. The sentence can move devote on this bill. As you know that $15 minimum wage was pulled out because it can't be included in budget reconciliation. There will be a vote J to reinsert that language. And if it's reinserted.

I actually think there's a chance the bill could be in trouble. But Tom, my best guess is that some of those extraneous measures are to come out in the Senate will approve a package with the pension reform with the direct payment checks in the gap to send it back to the house. That's the price you pay for playing some of these political games have to wait and see but by tomorrow will know a lot more.

Is it whatever if the Senate density is more bipartisan actually because it has to be your the US around second include the minimum wage increase their calls by people embraces a fire that parliamentarian of bringing Kemal Harris to overrule it to say is present in the Senate, I can overrule them and to throughout this shot me. This could it again were not getting relief. The American people steers problem. Our team is been on the good and the bad of these packages and it's way too much bad in there right now is getting back to the house again even once he gets to the student Senate if it in fact passes and what doesn't that will keep you updated support work ACLJ double the impact your donation or matching child began in the month of March.
