Seal J intervenes at the United Nations human trafficking in human form then and now.

This is what I hear from you. Most common call one 800-6843 11. The broadcasts were to talk about. That is front of Ross that the ACLJ and that is this issue of human trafficking out about address this domestically and internationally. That's because the American Center for Law and Justice has been involved in both arenas domestically in internationally. Now the fact of the matter is working to play in the next segment were to hear from you CC how seeds appear before the United Nations on the issue of human trafficking theory hear her actual presentation to the United Nations just to talk about why we did that, but you need also understand that the issue of human tracking here in the trafficking here in the United States, Israel, let me give you this in the last couple weeks. Headlines not just from New York Times and Washington Post, local newspapers, for instance, CBS 12 in Florida human trafficking arrest team felt brainwashed in that forced into engaging in these activities.

Dallas Observer men convicted of sex trafficking in teens teens out of hotel Sacramento Bee Sacramento jury convicts a man of sex trafficking 16-year-olds in Kentucky business is under investigation for illegal human trafficking of River city news counties is in Boone County, Ohio man's arrested by promoting human trafficking. Nashville, Tennessee, Mississippi, and on and on it goes. This will go to any, first was a former US attorney, but also I a state prosecutor DA you know, one of the things that Simi is an issue here is that when talk about this on the international level and some of these girls are brought in from overseas. So don't make make no mistake, this is a serious blight in the world right now of human gravity and the impact on this is significant enough that the Justice Department has issued a report dealing with this. That's true J these trafficking activities are taking place, and I have personal experience of this in prosecuting these cases civilly as racketeering cases and criminally in Southeast Georgia. These women are being imported from overseas the ring segment smuggled into the country there being set up and houses are being set up in motels and hotels which let me also say to the owners of these hotels and motels that you knowingly do this and harbor these kinds of activities in your premises you are subjecting to your premises. The forfeiture of the state from being used for illegal trafficking activity. So these things are happening all over the country and they are entailing the bringing in of people and women and boys in children and young girls from overseas and outside the United States.

As you correctly point out J. Is a policy issued to you and that is we have to address this, both domestically and internationally. You can't just do one.

I think that's correct.

And so while I applaud the Department of Justice in issuing a report on sex trafficking that is clearly not enough. We need to engage in affirmative efforts both domestically and internationally to stop this.

So, according to a recent report over 40 million individuals have been involved in sex trafficking and most of the victims are women and children. At the same time, the United States border is open and it is open to sex trafficking and the Biden administration has reverse crop era policies that were working to restrict and to reduce such trafficking in the past. So without killing him doing a good location were filling in a gap in the paper about to take a break, let me take some benign clergy to share the speed with your friends there, watching and entering any worthless media application the course of your listening on radio all the difference or to work in it. We went to the UN to address the sum is done remotely these days. Our team is there dealing with this inherent CC how we come back right will take your calls. Also at 1-800-684-3110, 1-800-684-3110, whether it is in Ohio or at the United Nations.

The ACLJ and affiliate organizations around the world are there.

Your support for the ACLJ and our affiliates keeps us in court 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 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 every dollar you donate $10 gift 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ the work we do. Simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge today make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms you forgive today online ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally support the publication includes a look at all major ACLJ Jesus were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist the ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in emotion and what Obama care means to the pro-life discover the many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right question for economy mission life today online ACLJ/Gasset were talking about initiatives front center for us of the ACLJ that's a whole issue of human trafficking. CC I'll is a senior counsel at the ACLJ she's heavily involved in this issue and I want to start CC I think it's important for people to understand before we get into what took place at the UN. Let's define what this is. The people need understand what is human trafficking. While modern-day slavery because that's really what it is. People are sometimes stolen from their homes initially lured away to you with false promises. And then there forced into labor or on sexual commerce. Obviously not something that they had wanted to do and and did plainly yet so let's talk about, particularly the probable theory was law enforcement and he was going to rest the girls and charge them with prostitution. That was the old model here and then we got involved. I guess this was over a decade ago and started drafting model laws to go after the perpetrators of the actual crime which would be individuals were the traffickers that who you really have to target is the traffickers the other ones are in many ways victims I have seen rooms full of young women who are simply slaves and who are absolutely captured in the rooms and you and you go after the traffickers and the people who put them there and the people who harbor them the motel and hotel owners don't think that's a small thing in racketeering cases. We seek the forfeiture of property of people who use their lands and their fund their premises for these activities so the real people here who you need to target are the people who organize these crimes write the people who put these together, the people who brainwash the teams as you mentioned in the opening. The people who say to the young girl get in my car and come with me and you're going to be a model for my close line, and then put her in there and basically use her as a sex victim and make thousands and thousands, and thou of dollars off for these are the perpetrators CC you want to be United Nations set this up before we play the segment share separate oral interventions at the United Nations and specifically addressing on topics. This topic is on human trafficking said this is a chance to do an oral intervention with the special aperture on human diet, human trafficking, and that's that's a chill here if you're going to play that our intervention oral intervention with the special aperture and back in may be filed with the United Nations. I'm holding my hand in a written statement submitted by our European Center for Law and Justice, which focused on exactly the same issue was noted were taken you to this is the actual presentation that CC did at the night got was it done remotely now because a covert, but at the United Nations.

Take a listen and I give the phone to the European Center for Law and Justice. Thank you, Mdm. Pres., human trafficking, all its forms is an issue that plagues every country to some degree or another. It is a plight that continues to grow worldwide and currently affects well over 40 million victims. Clearly, there is much work to be done to combat the increasingly problematic issues of modern-day slavery. Human traffickers typically target the most vulnerable and abused individuals with false promises of well-paying jobs.

Victims are forced to live in extremely poor conditions while making the bare minimum, if any at all. While their captors take the rest. Sadly, children and women make up 99% of the victims in the commercial sex industry and 58% in other sectors into the commonly international nature of human trafficking is often difficult for an individual government to investigate reports of trafficking and to punish traffickers. Therefore, it would be valuable to use the resources and assistance that many NGOs, especially faith-based groups provide addressing this issue.

Additionally, properly combating human trafficking requires comprehensive legislation containing sufficient penalties for human traffickers as well as providing rehabilitation services and aid for the victims. However, without sufficient resources and training.

These laws are useless.

Therefore, it is critical that countries commit these resources and training to authorities so that they can identify cases of human trafficking and put an end to this atrocity. Thank you so CC let's talk about the but the point of the intervention is there to focus the issue share so we might point out why there is this case problem, affecting over 40 million people and to do. We also want to point out that there are NGOs that are already poised and ready to help in this situation because a lot of the countries cannot effectively go after these traffickers because of the international nature victims. If there found they go back to their countries and see you don't have the victim to testify, said there NGOs already in place.

Most of them are faced faith-based that will help out in this situation, and that's what we were suggesting to the United Nations that they that countries engage these NGOs to help fight this problem. It was interesting to me that always been a concern of mine here is really talking about any could address the specifics, but young teenagers sometimes as young as 12 years old, absolutely, and many of the traffickers they absolutely target young kids and this is a tragedy. Equally important, though, I think, is the fact that the current ministration seems totally unprepared to deal with. They shut down an ice program that was aimed at illegal traffickers and so trafficking continues and it probably has expanded if we could actually get accurate numbers why because the Biden administration insist on reversing prompt error policies that were working yeah and any you handle these cases and they are tragic and we we draft of the laws we tailored these laws because we knew that some of these coming all of these kids are kids. I mean literally, some of them, 10, 12 years old, that's exactly right. The perverted attitude of some of the perpetrators here actually wants to target children. This is the perversion that is in the minds of these sects addicts is what they are and they look at a 10 or a 12-year-old or a 14-year-old girl. They make promises and representations to them of great jobs that they're going to get. They literally kidnapped them off the streets.

Then they put them in hotel and motel rooms.

They traveled them across the country and there was a case in the Northern District of Texas in which that this person rightly convicted. I was the sense that he would be imposed by honor by the judges, the maximum, but what he was doing was moving these girls from hotel rooms to Texas to California and using them basically as slaves. This is an indentured kind of servitude that they can escape from, and once they get brainwashed into it.

They think it's right. They think it's appropriate and we have been at the ACLJ in the forefront of drafting legislation and of promoting the acts that will absolutely put people like these perpetrators behind bars where they belong. You know, we really have because as I said we drafted model laws, and is now CC was interesting or in the piece we submitted the written document we submitted to the United Nations. We noted that in 1997. That's a long time ago there were 700,000 human trafficking victims worldwide.

I suspect that 23 years later, that number is probably up 5 to 10 fold over 40 million demos of human trafficking.

Currently over 40 million in LF over 40,000,099% of those are women and children. Any commercial sex industry and 58% of those are women and children, and other sectors. So the vast majority of those 40 million victims are women and children. We think about what that number's sleeping for people 40 million victims of this worldwide. This is a play Gary Mobley and it supplied right here in the United States. I think the American people should rise up and demand leadership from those individuals in Washington. Individuals that are part and parcel of the Homeland's secretary's office and the DHS so I think we really need to address this issue both internationally and domestically. We cannot simply rest on what we've done in the past. There is some break. Thank you CC there is some breaking news, and that is a big story and that is the governor of the state of New York. Andrew Cuomo has resigned effective in 14 days I were to talk about the ramifications of that in the next segment of the broadcast. Those of you on Facebook.

We may go down and then relaunch our teams looking at that right now, but again this is something we need to spend the segment discussing transition of power.

Why this is significant, politically. What impact does it have a New York and the rest of the country you know a lot of people do not think he was in the step out of the political pressure just with mounting and mounting and mounting so we'll talk about that we come back from the break will take your calls at 800-684-3110. The New York situation is interesting. A pure New York and I know Ron stations in New York give us a call 1-800-684-3110 talk about the situation with the governor 800-684-3110 to get on Facebook or other social media platforms like Morgan a relaunch in a moment again support the work of the ACLJ could do that@aclj.org. But again, the governor of the state of New York. Andrew Cuomo has resigned effective in working days is a big development again will take your calls on that 800-684-3110 back with more moments Facebook were to go down and come back up only one.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.

Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition will show you how you are personally publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications. 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in what Obama care means many ways your membership is powering the right question free 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 faith covering corruption in Washington fighting to protect life reports it 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 time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift is $20, $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we do. Simply would not occur without your generous heart wrenching challenge to make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms you forgive today online ACLJ everybody. We've got some breaking news, and that is the attorney general for the state of new acutely be governor of the state of New York. Andrew Cuomo has resigned because of the allegations contained in the report by the state Atty. Gen. Leticia James. This is a breaking news developmental that it was an increasing call for possible impeachment issues so he would've probably face the impeachment if he was to be impeached is the process itself would've required him to step aside and run a lot of stations in New York, but even if you're not in your concert we can call but especially New York. We want to hear from you on this at 1-800-684-3110. That's 800-684-3110. As I just said the attorney general's report led to this impeachment, not Lotta people said that the Atty. Gen.'s report was very, politically motivated because she has Leticia James adds interest in becoming governor. All that aside, the fact is that report has led to the governor resigning. He has resigned effective in 14 days were in place some sound from that in a moment, but there's been a note, there was criticism leveled at that at this governor for a while. Here wasn't just these allegations of inappropriate touching, it was some of that there was allegations of cover-up during the coded pandemic situation when earlier broken New York and people being sent to nursing homes and those number nothing reportedly split up in a series of issues and he but obviously when the governor of the state of New York resigns this is really big news is extremely big news and I must say from a personal point of view. I think it's the best thing for the people of the state of New York and the people of the United States. Generally speaking, I am very surprised that this would've happened, was a very entrenched politician. Most of these Democrats who have power knock on the are very loath to give it up very easily. I never thought personally that he would ever resign whatsoever.

The report must've been completely damning and what's most important is that because he was having erosion of political support in his own Democratic Party. The impeachment under New York law would've caused him to have to step aside and send similar to the nation situation when your own people come to you and say it doesn't look good.

We don't have the votes yet. It's time for you to step aside, you need to do that.

That's probably what happened here is not the Republicans would cause them to have to do to step aside and to resign is probably the erosion of supporting his Democratic base. That's exactly correct impact Associated Press is reporting Harry that a majority of the New York assembly would've ousted Gov. Cuomo if he did not in fact resign. I think that is cracked and so I think his support in New York had already been diminished before these allegations came to the fore in part because of his mishandling of the coded crisis putting coded positive patients back into nursing homes that was not enough to push them out of office.

But I think these clear and apparently unmistakable allegations which have a lot of credibility behind them concerning sexual harassment that was enough to turn the entire state against him and I think it's very important to remember that it was the Democrats who decided that he should go, and since he lost no support. I'm sorry he retained zero support from Democrats. He decided to go on his own. That is probably the best outcome for the people of the state of New York, and I think the other issue and and Andy may have some knowledge about this. The other issue that will face on Mr. Cuomo is whether or not there will be criminal referrals yet so ending their art. There were allegations in there that touched on criminality and in fact some prosecutors in Westchester and also Long Island said they are looking into potential criminal cases here yeah and there as well they should. As well they should.

The report is a very damning report, the Atty. Gen., and this is been a decades long problem with the now ex-governor, soon-to-be ex-Gov. Cuomo and there needs to be an investigation of the acts, practices and transactions that he is engaged in with the sexual attacks and groping is another similar conduct with respect to women and to others in the estate of New York that needs to be looked at by the local district attorney's. Let's be fair. You your after Pres. Tromp looking at him force silly tax charge that results in nothing but the payment of the fine and little interest you not to let the governor of New York, who may be very well guilty of criminal infractions of the sex laws go unpunished.

I think what's good for the goose is good for the gander. It's interesting to me also and I don't know how this plays out is the impact this has on the and will look at this during the break, the transition of power for Lieut. Gov. normally would become the governor now New York is having some in a serious issue still with covert as the rest of the country is so Gov. Cuomo set out if we have the sound said he was doing this to get out of the way of the basically what was going on to me. The idea being that he no, he was being a distraction and that it would be worse for the people New York where hearing from people in New York our phone lines are open at 800-684-3110. Let me go to Joe was calling from New York now online one Joe you're on their way. I New York by way I wear big red L University in I am so glad I not doing it. What he did is getting national coverage now. I think all of this is created where that is now becoming publicly go ahead and do a good job. One of the largest economies in the world, not just in the states with the largest economies in the world.

So for all of us.

We Harry policy standpoint you want there to be a smooth transition about yes you do, but you also want to see an increase in the level of confidence in a competent sari in the governor's office and I certainly hope the callers optimism plays out.

Going forward I think Gov. Cuomo has not been a competent governor for the last several years on a number of fronts, but nonetheless the national media has provided cover for him and basically lifted him up as a paragon. For instance, with respect to covert even though New York and New Jersey have the highest death rate per hundred thousand I believe in the United States so I'm in this is this is usually spoke something. We were not watching it this morning to see if we needed to cover obviously ready to be analysis particular calls at 800-684-3110 is 1-800-684-3110 governor of one of the most the Lord.

One of the largest economies in the world, certainly in the United States but in the world is resigning.

No one thought that Andrew Cuomo would voluntarily resign, but apparently the political pressure we can talk about what that means we come back from the break became too much for him to bear he knew was inevitable. Like Andy said earlier that what was going to put a situation in place where there was no real option politically.

That means your voice gets hurt. Take your calls 900-684-3110. If you're New York or elsewhere want to hear from you on this big story when it hundred 684-3110.

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 challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be matched $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and your family. Give a gift today online ACLJ keeping you informed and now this is J secular everybody we got breaking news, and that is the governor of the state of New York. Andrew Cuomo has resigned effective in 14 days. This comes after the order issued by the Atty. Gen. of New York Atty. Gen. James where she made allegations against Gov. Cuomo with regard to un-consented. That's a lack of consent and inappropriate touching, and not even a even further than that and that resulted in a political reality for the governor. He maintained his innocence. He talked about it the last couple weeks, but this is what he said just about an hour, not even an hour.

Go take a listen.

I think that given the circumstances.

The best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to government and therefore that's what I'll do. Because I work for you and doing the right thing is doing the right thing for you.

The political reality of what happened to him. His political base eroded in the New York legislature, Andy, which was going to result in impeachment proceedings, which would require him to step aside yet that's exactly correct analysis, J love God. Cuomo was an entrenched corrupt Democratic New York politician.

It was supported by the Democratic Party. No matter what he did was go it was going to be supported in and found to be appropriate now, suddenly, the report comes out, the Democrats start running for cover and the need in the New York Jets general legislative assembly and they say we don't want them anymore is no good he's done these terrible things, not only with a covered debacle and fiasco, but also in the sexual allegations. So, the road to his own Democrats are leaving him just like the Republicans left Nixon in the 70s and once your own political base arose in your own political friends relieve you and let you go you see the handwriting on the wall.

You know that it's coming.

You might as well quit and so he takes out and says I'm doing this for the good of the people.

What is doing it because he knows the reality of the politics and you can count the votes just like we can count about and he didn't have a representative democracy. Harry, this is what happens. I mean I would no ill will to anybody here. This is how representative democracy works a constitutional republic.

I think your precisely correct. So what we have in this particular case is a political political surrender by a long defiant state executive in this long, defiant state executive can still count the votes and he saw that he was lacking support his support cratered and so after attacking Pres. Trump relentlessly.

Cuomo's long-standing chickens have now come home to roost and so I think he basically said he needed to go and I think it's difficult to disagree with him alright so were to be taking a break in a minute and 40 seconds I want to encourage you if you're watching right now to share the speed with your friends joining us next Rick Grenell, former ambassador to Germany and director of national intelligence were to get his take on this working to give you more analysis were to take the calls that are coming. In fact, time to take Tom's call. Yes, we can Tom go at your own there like Western New York. Great like that in a long time supporter of ACL tagging that bless you for all your work. Thanks I guess I had a little insight that I wanted a comment, but being downfall was he was on television every day.

One days during this call that he said that you don't have God to thank for the decrease in call that you have yourselves to thank Jeff and I just think that's shades the Titanic yeah I remember I remember that statement Tom, I remember what he said and I said that is when you are asking for trouble, but you know again live in a constitutional republic in the New York legislature. He did have the support that's what happened. All right Rick what else joining us. You want to share this people different worsening live on Facebook and other social media platforms call us at 1-800-684-3110, especially New York and elsewhere to California looking at a recall for very different reason of the governor earthquake between New York and California in 14 six weeks number 41 800-684-3110 800-684-3110 support the work of ACLJ.org breaking news big day here from 800-684-3110.

The American Center for Law and were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom detecting those covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life and 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 challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous heart wrenching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms gift today online okay only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. 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 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's role in the history and what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right question for you mission life today online/the governor of the state of New York is resigning effective in 14 days. Andrew Cuomo said that for the betterment of New York. He was resigned. Joining us now is our senior advisor on international affairs, and also what national security but also serve as the director of national intelligence and ambassador Germany and is in California. Also, since going to be an interesting thing that you got New York with Gov. resigning and got a recall effort out in California. Rick, let's first go to New York for audit is not as listening or ready we would talk to her Facebook buddies. By the way, if you want to talk to us on air 1-800-684-3110 and will take your phone calls from New York or elsewhere, California 200-684-3110 you talk to our audience on our social media platform.

Let's talk again. Your initial reaction to this Rick to quit whining is this is a win for those of us who want to fight when we push back against the politicians who clearly are abusing their office or who have bad policies. We can win no matter what they say. Remember, Cuomo said he was never going to resign but in the face of getting pushback when we fight we can win. That's the first second thing is remember this is how Washington works is not in trouble for all of the killings that happen in the nursing homes and the misinformation that he put out there, and the fact that he made money by pretending that he managed COBIT in a positive way when he didn't trouble any of these debts in the nursing on season trouble because he was caught in a sexual harassment allegation campaign and so let's just remember how Washington works that you don't always have to look at the exact issue when were trying to get someone who is a bad player to remove them from office. We have to play the game and I think it ACLJ we know how to play the game you know it's interesting also Rick this is a governor that signed probably the most aggressive abortion law in the world. Nothing in the United States Army in the world. It was basically abortion up to birth and you know you and then he made that statement that the earlier call reference ways that don't thank God for these in a COBIT number for comedown.

Basically thank him.

I mean and think yourselves.

I mean this is this is the reality of the arrogance that you see here, but I it's deeper than that were taking your calls at 800-684-3110 about this uninteresting call coming in from Roberta, could you mention the nursing home situation.

Rick rebroken Colorado's ally to Roberta glad you're on their know him well my name and if he can be convicted under the okay so the investigations are ongoing and deep now handed over from the state attorney general to the DA in Manhattan but also to the DA in Westchester County and to the DA in long island and I don't know what the status of the nursing home investigations are that would normally be handled by the I would think the counties where took place where the debts to place any Jawa that that's the normal procedure is the district attorneys for each of the places where these events have taken place with government and would look conceited and make a determination vaginally whether there was enough evidence to pursue against the former governor now terminally and as Harry mentioned earlier, you know he he Cuomo for years and years.

This is completely tried to devastate President tromping to say terrible things about him and to criticize them and condemn them to say that he didn't do this and didn't do that and now he's getting his comeuppance and all comes back. The world is a big circle and everything you do comes back to roost in his chickens have not come back to root for the district attorneys, and let's see if Cy Vance now has the courage he took on President from let's see if he has the courage to take on some of these ion allegations that have been made against Gov. Cuomo and then whether or not he has the courage to prosecute him for these abhorrent sexual conduct that he is engaged in for years and years and years, say allegedly because you not guilty to core law just to be clear, everybody's present but that's in a court of law in the court of public opinion in accord politics to me that it would happen, the speaker of the New York assembly. New York State assembly said he should resign.

The New York State assemblyman that was close to him resign. It just to the list just kept getting longer and longer. His number I think a senior aide.

Also, Rick resigned.

So what happened was the political this what we need to explain to her by the way the government works you are. It's a represent. Like you said Rick is a representative constitutional Republic and in the states is similarly situated and when your political base arose because you said people are pushing back in that vein affects the state legislatures, which controlled his ability to stay in office because they were talking about impeachment.

That is all very serious yet so let's be very clear here. You're right, Jake. Gov. Cuomo had a political problem and the legal problem today by resigning.

He sold his political problem, but his legal problems should continue, and I pray to God that we don't have a bunch of prosecutors who are so political that they ignore the law and the legal issues simply because the political problems are solved. They are two separate issues that should be treated as separate issues and the legal prosecution should never interfere with politics. My concern here. I think you're right and I want to tie the situation. You have a situation California to New York when largest economies of the world was when largest guns in nine states, and then you got a recall of her going on in California where you could be seeing the governor of California replaced another gigantic economy world world sized economy and this is happening so I will take like two earthquakes on different different reasons. I don't want to let go allegations on on Gavin Newsom that were the same type that were on with regard to Gov. Cuomo.

This was as it relates to Newsom its governance and this was to Gov. Cuomo to but I think the allegations against him on the unconsented touching is what sent this off. What is it look like in California right now Rick because I mean this is a matter of literally he's residing in two weeks which means you don't less than a month's time. You could have two governors of the two largest populated states work by the top three resigning or being taken out of office Outlook governors some right now it's September 14 recall. Unfortunately, because the his party controls everything in the state they are. We are not going to the polls. All mail-in ballots and the woman that he put in charge of the Secretary of State's office here in California she's just announced that now we can do print at home balance so you can go on website and print your Valette and then send it again. I made it illegal to that there is no protection, election integrity makes Harry Hutchinson a Greco policy almost fell out of his dairy coed mallet you talk, but I wanted see buddy buddies do anything about this.

Well essentially it's not based on what Ricky said the state of California is encouraging fraud and and certainly you know my job 27-year-old child.

Let's say located in Florida could vote in California and pretty the form of our current in the form off the computer sending Anand with a California address. This makes no sense. It's basically an invitation to fraud and I think California has probably been a notably loose state in the past.

Rick looking at. There's a lot of problems in the city California 90 say this about California jet, you know, if we look at our entire radio audience here. Some of our largest audiences in California. Some of the most generous donors are in California, so this is not an attack on you. Obviously its attack on the waiter states being run, but Rick is anybody brought any kind of legal challenge or thought about legal challenges on this. I know these rules just come out like the last 48 hours.

What's the latest on that front just came out and as everybody knows, I announced that I wasn't going to run for governor in this recall. And one of the reasons I never California but good for what what I really believe this is that we got into some fundamental fixes and so I have a 501(c) four called fix California.com and we are looking at this challenge. Not only do we believe that we should go and have voter IDs, but we are suing every single county in the state of California to clean up their voter rolls.

As part of this we are looking at strategic lawsuits like the printing of ballots at home like Rite Aid urgency order that Newsom has in place.

Still, because of COBIT to have mail and pallet only elections. We think that goes too far. His emergency orders are still in place and it's an outrage and this is exactly what one-party rule looks like, and we gotta clean it up and that's what were trying to fix Ricky as you know we just filed a brief in California got a lot of attention and sees me in Georgia on the Sandy on the same kind of issues so were primed on this Rick but we got it so you know, talk to us fair, but I will tell you and you look at this this election integrity got 40 seconds or by the way social media ACLJ.org were stay alive through the brakes ready office live a commercial come back to if you want to talk to is 800-684-3110, but Andy looking at it, we just bow that brief on a lot of the same kind of issues we just relate to me the Justice Department to come after the state of Georgia for a law that does nothing but ensure voter integrity and allow something like this happening California for your friends your own valid is an outrage to me they are to be treated equally. Talk to Rick during the break here and our entire team honestly were just joining us. Gov. Cuomo resigned effective in 14 days were taking your calls 800-684-3110. Your comments also in social media 1-800-684-3110 back with more only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold mission 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's role in your motion imagery and what Obama care means many ways your membership is powering the right question mission life today online/the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those faith covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress.

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 $50 gift becomes 100. This is time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous heart wrenching challenge make protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms you forgive today online okay here with Vernell is with us and Harry Hutchison and Andy O'Connell talk about the breaking news, which is that the New York governor, Andrew Cuomo, I thought what he started the speech Rick was not going to resign ice. It is a tough guy. He's been difficult on our policy issues horrible on the issue of abortion had the mess with sending covert patients into nursing homes.

But then there was this devastating report that came out of the Atty. Gen.'s office with these allegations of unconsented touching. That's what it's called legally and that puts now the lieutenant governor in place. I want to go to Ashley she's from New York. If you want talk to us, especially New York or California. 800-684-3110 Ashley glad you're on their Mike called wondering your don't know what to expect from the lieutenant governor. What should I expect well I think right now you would you have to ask this is what we hope for from New York and I think all of us would agree with this a smooth transition of power because your economy is one of the largest economies in the world. New York is the financial center of the world in New York City is just starting to come back not so well because of the recent variant of the covert virus so you know what we want is a smooth transition. This doesn't mean Rick that the Republicans are now in charge there not but it meant that the New York base click take this anymore. That's what really set and I also think it means that the reset gives an opportunity for collaboration at least discussion at this new governor in 14 days in New York is not going to be in the position to just do what ever they want their going to have to reach out estate needs healing people are upset. The media are even focused on this. This is an opportunity for politicians to actually collaborate and collaborate and what that means car Republicans in New York is they now have a chance to yes and I think that that's a big issue now.

I am concerned that whenever you have these transitions.

Andy things can fall through the cracks and that's where you gotta watch it in California.

As Richard said you had this whole change in the voting for this upcoming recall. I mean there were some reports I was seeing.

Just think Lynn last week that that Newsom's numbers had started falling significantly and then all of a sudden they change the voting so in New York after make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

Here Andy, well that's exactly why we have prosecutors and prosecutors and should not be motivated by political reasons. That's what concerns me in New York because all machine is controlled by the Democrats are the prosecutors now that the political aspect as Amb. Grenell said has been solved by his resignation is the legal aspect going to be just put on the table and on the sale.

He's gone.

Let's forget what he did there may have been criminalized but is no longer the governor that's gone to other things that were in the said that a President trumpet been implicated in the say was, are they going to have the legal courage now the legal courage to look at the acts that he engaged in that led to his resignation was going to count. Let's think Sharon is going online. Once you're in earlier. Thank you for all you do. There dying. Maybe right again.

I don't track I don't think there's a prohibition against him running again. I think there's a two-term limit in New York. Consecutive. I don't think I have to check for 10 years already. That's right, you're right. He has a reserve for 10 years so could he have other political resurgence and Harry this New York of course he could absolutely and so if you could whether the legal storm going forward. Who knows, he could perhaps make a comeback in 18 months or so. I think in New York.

Virtually anything is possible and I think New Yorkers perhaps other different from other states. They may be willing to overlook his history yet Rick on from your perspective here looking at California and in the change there and I know you got your C4 that's working on this. Is there a chance that there is a recall of new somebody think it just the numbers back in the lineup with this voting situation is a chance there's a chance I absolutely think there's a chance and we need to encourage people to get out there. Remember, it's up to question balanced wine is do you want to recall Gavin is something to that question one gets 50% and he's gone then who should replace them as is the question. The second question, so I think whoever gets the most votes right that is whoever gets the most votes, you could win with 10%. If there's enough people splitting the vote in question two. I think that there's an absolute chance, but we have to be able to have a fair shot and what's frustrating Johnny one party controlling of the state which has emergency powers in place still claiming because of God. We can't go to the poll so everything has to be done via mail and now this new rule, you can print your ballot at home and then send it in without an ID attached and and so I firmly believe the recklessness in the fraud that is being encouraged.

We gotta go back to have been in person voting and you must show an ID if you don't want that the rule that you have to show your ID in order to about I think I suspect you're trying to cheat you know it's going to come to think you're right. Going back to Gov. Cuomo. This is what he said about his own administration. You talk about this when Rick says Republicans have a chance to at least get a seat at the table, take a listen number 10 we made New York State. The progressive capital of the nation know what the state government accomplished more to help people and that is what it's all about. That is a very nice platitude. Harry is a nice platitude. The fact is, they had the most aggressive abortion position of any place in the world, not just in the United States in the world and Gov. Cuomo wants to ignore that and he also wants to ignore the fact that the abortion industry in New York disproportionately has an adverse effect on African-Americans and Latinos. So he claims to be a quote unquote progressive will. That is what a progressive governor looks like.

Alright, so let me go back to Rick and I got something quickly here frantically of time. Rick, what would California look like if Newsom is recalled. Cuomo also out in the MS recall that he will be replaced by a Republican because only Republicans are running on question two, and that Republican would be alone in Sacramento with a super majority in the Senate and super majority in the assembly against the person I can be a tough road but certainly would encourage a lot of conservatives to get involved. What we found that by fix California.com, a 501(c) 41.

So far, we found 1.3 million conservatives in California. I'm registered to vote on registered to vote in remote that's an initial bruising of the data.

One dream we know it will go out where going after John served registered absolutely. Thanks, Rick, and he quickly here. We got 50 seconds left 20 think the next move in New York is obviously ghost, he tries to say that's enough punishment amount of office. Yeah, well, he may succeed with a district attorney like Cyrus Vance and some of the others in the counties he shouldn't there should be an investigation grand jury should be convened, they should look at his criminal conduct alleged as alleged in the Atty. Gen.'s report, and if said if he's guilty, then he ought to be prosecuted by folks a dozen from one of Newsday covered a lot of information, I think her team for getting on the breaking of formation up that was not easy and they did a great job folks to get your friend so that they can see you later in the day and not again work in the ACLJ ACLJ.org 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 challenge for every dollar you donate will be managed $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms to you and your family.
