Breaking news the ACLJ files a critical injunction motion to block enforcement of the church, singing in California will talk about that today on Jay Sekulow live live from Washington DC questions right now: one 806 843-110-1800 68412, your host, secular secular log.

We are take your phone calls at one 800 68312. That's what hundred 684-3110 busy show for you today on the broadcast because as I said in the keys to the broadcast. The ACLJ has filed it happened on Friday evening a preliminary injunction motion against California Gov. Gavin Newsom California health Commissioner and two different County health commissioners because of the bad California put in place. Remember, specifically on churches or places of worship, a ban on singing and these are in counties in California where the churches are still allowed to meet it. So this actually Comes out June 1. Is this what looks like more like it would be like a guideline for Facebook and personal bodies just remind you it would look like a guideline that coming out like a recommendation, the state can recommend whatever you want whatever they want, whether you like it or not, but then you start looking at the language on church. This was a guideline for place of worship, so it's only targeted at place of worship, not anywhere else that has there been slots open. If your restaurants.

I'd open you could have singing and chanting. By the way, which is also bad, which affects Judaism and other Christian denominations and and other faiths group to Islam other. The list goes on, but it said this in the in the order so it came out it was called the covert, 19 industry guidance for places of worship and providers of religious services and cultural ceremonies from the California Department of Public Health from the from the state signed off on by the governor and his appointee, the California Commissioner of health and it said this on just a few pages in places of worship, and this was the key language must therefore discontinue singing and chanting activities and they Artie had the limits in place about how many people could be in there, which is very small. It was like 25% of capacity or 100. Whatever is less, that didn't matter even if he had like a 5000 person seating church and I did that, if you had a giant giant facility are not usually have 100 people, or 25%. Whatever was less so for a lot of these churches. It would be the 25 in the hundred would be the number because 25% could still be you know a thousand plus or 500+ but we filed, you know, we filed in court. Now we've taken the next step which is to get a preliminary injunction so were going to explain to you with the Ed White from the ACLJ what this means for those churches. How this works and you understand again how we filed our complaint so we file the complaint and then how you move on from filing the complaint to then actually going forward and going for the preliminary injunction and what that would mean for these churches in California were also to update you on the school choice now act and the number of cases of come in from parents across the country were not 46 states plus DC over thousand over appearance of contents for assistance because they face significant hardships because of their school's plan. Whether that was of the state-level school board level I get over 1000 of those that was just as as of Friday morning. By the way, I but we haven't seen the updates are to go through all the was a comment on the website.

The context of it over thousand out of those thousand 800 of already did. Working with attorneys. The other 200 just got a question back from attorneys just to look for some more information to see how we could help that were doing all this work. All of these cases that we better government affairs effort on the school choice now. Act will talk about what they admit it just as of the next segment because of your support for the ACLJ is the final week of our matching challenge the month of July is a matching challenge month.

Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who are persecuted for their faith. Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift dollar gift becomes 100.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is certainly is there any hope for that culture to survive.

That's it. No cost, just helping us with our grassroots efforts@aclj.org. If you don't think that's effective in California even to these very liberal states with liberal governors, liberal councils and school boards and things like that when people petition at these kind of numbers we've seen the change happened before. Much quicker than if you do have to go to court, but sometimes you have to go to court and we know out there there's there's 1/4 million people who took the time to stand with those churches@aclj.org. We also know we have our donors and supporters out there who have donated to support this works we can represent these clients at no cost to them and have attorneys across the country ready to going to court not just in the initial complaint but now in the Plymouth area injunction that was filed on the 24th. I want to bring you one of those attorneys as well.

Just a minute Ed White. Let me encourage you folks. We do all this work at no cost. Those churches and it sets precedents. We do all of this work for the over 1000 parents have contacted us because of the school issues they're facing and covert at no cost. They get they get they get legal assistance and and many of them will end up having legal representation at no cost because of your support for the ACLJ we can talk about all these issues we have this radio broadcast in our TV broadcast because of your support for the ACLJ July is a matching challenge month. What that means is that whatever you're able to donate@aclj.org we have donors who say I will match that donation. So you gotta take that initial step and that only talking to you if you're financially able to right now because I know there are a lot of people facing hardships right now because of covert and the effect it's had on business and work. But if you are in the position where you're able to donate. This is a great time to do it because you're doubling the impact your donation a $20 donation. That's all you charged ACLJ.org. It then gets batched. What is that mean you are the reason why we received actually $40 but from your $20 donation. Even your five dollar donation is like a $10 your $100 donation is 250 becomes 100 audit on this is this is a critical month for us@theacljdonateonlineaclj.org today just takes a couple minutes. It's safe and secure. To get those resources right to us so we can get it continued to do all this work at no cost to the clients we represent. I wanted to write to Ed White, a senior counsel with the ACLJ Ed was critically involved in has been critically well from the start. In the cases in California represent in the singing band.

The state enacted and was also heavily involved in filing of the preliminary injunction so and it's great to have you on the broadcast.

Let me will be first Ed just to explain to people you know, we filed art are the initial complaint and I'm sure there wondering what they did.

What is the preliminary injunction therefore audience out there. I know it. A lot of them know you listened they listens broadcast lot that they could probably give us the legal definition of employment injunction, but forever. Everybody else tuning it just so they understand you were in federal court. What is it mean now that we filed this injunction and that the judge will in effect on the case earlier rather than later so asking the judge here is to allow singing and churches in California in the counties, which were selling now and then, as the case proceeds. That injunction is in place until the end of the case, a judge can enter plunder injunction and then six months later, whenever change his or her mind, but in the interim, because there is a car constitutional rights tradition and the like to worship is protected by the First Amendment.

People should have that right and be able to exercise that right.

While the case proceeds, so asking for the judge to rule on this now rather than later and I'm sure people who are watching Facebook and periscope the significance of Apollinaire injunction and is a significant filing in in courts, what, how does it speed up the process for these churches so people understand who out there who video with 260,000 people on a petition I mean is 1/4 a bit more than 1/4 million people signed a petition ACLJ.org they care about this issue. Their questions about this issue and if you do call us at 164 3110.

How does this potentially speed up that process and what would it look like next for that. For the judge and and for our attorneys.

So if we did not file this motion, the case will proceed as we file the complaint we serve several weeks go by before the state would have to respond to that and then you have this long discovery process and then maybe a year from now, we'd be asking the judge to make a ruling here by filing this motion for plunder injunction. We asked the court to expedite it, which means speeded up is the court will be considering this matter. In the next couple of weeks or few weeks rather than a year from now.

So that's why it's important to the churches. So with the plunder injunction. If we win were able to allow these churches to sing as part of their indoor worship service. If we lose a plunder injunction is one of the fuel few rulings, a trial court makes during a case that we can immediately appeal to the Court of Appeal to get a ruling on so it's very significant matter for the client to be able exercise her constitutional rights and then procedurally to be able to go to the Court of Appeal sooner rather than later so hopefully we can get an answer in a matter of weeks, rather than waiting months since I sent Scott so matter weeks instead of months, which was a judge, make an initial take the next initial step of the said the, the state and the county will be filing their response in about a week. We then got to file a reply and hopefully the judge will be considering the matter early in mid August. So no matter what would that be two or so weeks from now. But that's up to the judge. The judge can easily say I'm not going to hear this formatter are additional weeks because of the schedule of court. So we've we've put forth a schedule that is faster than normal.

It's up and up to the judge now to accept that schedule. But as all these matters turn out it it's always up to the judge how the judge wants the case proceed to take this call actually exiting it's important for next people do that yes people are experiencing such different things across the country. 164 3110.

If you have questions about this questions about the schools of music that you might need or legal help you give us a call 1-800-684-3110. If you have questions about that federal I propose legislation by Lamar Alexander. Alexander the senator and sinner Tim Scott, school choice, now act basically a pandemic voucher that can be part of the next stimulus call is one 800 684 31 to Bosco deferred in Florida on line to referred welcome to Jay Sekulow live time going at it affecting the rest of the candidate are you finding that churches are being complaint you find them searching and for years and now as a member that can and let his support of the churches. How can I along with the donation. Make it different and helping the cause because getting the church is opened again and you know and functioning mean when you die everything out that the church is very obvious what's going on. The situation here for most of California and from other California listeners there and counties and that are completely shut down. It's not just churches that can have in person things it's and it is everything. So there's no way she was singing because it's not happening inside because there's nothing happening inside a but these counties happen to be analysis down to actually one of these counties and interesting to point out, this was between the time of our actual filing and of the complaint and now the filing of the preliminary injunction on on Friday of last week. One of the counties of the of the three churches we represent one of those churches is an accounting that is been shut down totally correct and that unfortunately for fun to sponsor question is because of the coronavirus matters are changing, almost by the hour and so you may have something where our churches opened and allowed to do things because everything else is opened and all of a sudden everything is shut down. What were dressing here in California.

This particular county is other businesses are opened and, for example, indoor protest and you can scream and chant or whatever but you just can't do it in the church so situation globalization here is there's different treatment for churches with regard to what you can do is a lot of this besides the legal it's political is to speak to your send letters to your governor to your counties whoever's in charge of regulating and pointing out that churches should be treated the same as barbershops as casinos as restaurants and people have a First Amendment right to worship as they see fit.

Folks think and wife are doing is working really hard on that just even on the preliminary injunction getting a draft ready to go and we got a file Friday is great info for audience will take.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous heart wrenching challenge to make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms. Today online okay Jay Sekulow life. We are to your phone calls 164 3110. My dad Jay Sekulow chief also at the ACLJ is traveling but joining us by phone right I want to talk to everybody and update them and that we just talked to Ed White about filing a not just our complaint which we filed on July 15 but now I've on Friday afternoon after we were on the air filing the preliminary injunction against Gov. Newsom in California. Their head of their health department there. California County health commissioners as well and went through that because for you know we have over 262,000 people who signed the petition ACLJ.org that people care about this across the country. They know how dangerous of a precedent. This would set if the California government gets away with telling people how they could worship when they go to their worship services directly right in that whole process. Of course, the Supreme Court issued another horrible ruling in my view on Friday where they basically said Caesar's Palace can open or poker and gambling. But a church can't open up her singing and more conservative interesting aspect of that was that was a very strong dissent by course at Toledo, and Cavanaugh Wortley John Roberts going majority of the court and allowing the ridiculous restriction to a climax with allowing a gambling casino if they can open up and operate separately that you have the right to do that.

Not not making a judgment on that but I am saying that you can't. It's amazing that Caesar's Palace is protected is just a source of said but not Calvary Chapel and work. This case probably end up at the screen court. Who knows what they're going to start you have to bring them. You can't let this stuff go wrong to let it go the wrong signal. Even if you're not successful, you have to fight and on this particular one is ridiculous restriction.I know, I think you get up there very quickly is a California has not yet come back and make this easy for everyone and said you know what we should that language were recent place of worship must therefore discontinue singing and chanting activities. That's what they wrote their guidelines so that's what we filed because that was it like a guideline that wasn't like a recommendation. It says must therefore must therefore discontinue sounds very legal.

California has a comeback that is said we didn't intend that to be to me that that would be like enforceable. That was of socially recommendation. If you still are allowed to be opening California follow all the other rules you can sing if you want with it. We don't think it's a good idea, but you can if you want to, they could come back and done that but it seems like because our preliminary injunction discussions with her that represent illegal. The lawyer for the state that is not their position, at least as of now, now that I could take with her when the pilot but I think that points to the problem. So on these restrictions on on church becoming the core of liberty. Gambling is not a protected activity under the Constitution is a lot of activity without a protected activity will religious speech, freedom of a particularly protected under the Constitution so that that's going on.

I think to bring any takers or maybe one of them. Somebody will say that denying you know what this is ridiculous. We can allow this to happen. That's what you gotta hope that you bring them, and that's exactly what were doing about it so many others work very very easy to or representing somebody's parents. I know that it like Francis that that wild situation in Arizona where the school is change their name but will open on the same date. School was supposed to start my Moses it's August 4 and if you want to see your kid, you gotta pay $200 a week now. On top of the taxpayer dollars spent and set to be up to $800 a month and you know the cases like that were to be a likely taking action this week, I spoke to you gotta fight these battles that made me think about that for a moment to think about goals not in the real, but they are going to reopen for because the real thing. You continue to bear dollars for all and you know where to start. To the same school with no instruction and so on the site. Those in these other thousand plus is coming on various issues.

Whether it's independent education and programs that students have special needs. Economic issues like you said that there their worst fight because also eat.

Sometimes even these again what you said you never predict wins and losses, especially with this covert issue with the way the Supreme Court has been responding. So far, but you can also make sure that even if you don't get a total victory, you get that you get a limited loss, limited loss where the states are not handed over power to do this willy-nilly whenever she gotta keep the government in check, and you can do that even if you don't went directly by you. But let me down. I would play this from Steve Hilton because I think it's important for everybody to hear. You know I been on his show a couple times is really how we started getting all these folks take take a list if you watch on Facebook appears that this was last night is to strip producer said we just want the info would have Jan when you take take your next actual legal filing. We will update everybody and make sure people still know how to contact you. Take a take a listen to this or watch it all across America are rising up in this revolution to smash the government school monopoly last week Jordan secular told us that hundreds of families have contacted the ACLJ about suing school closure districts has that map as a Friday over 1000 people from 46 states and DC.

If you want to join in. Go to ACLJ.old/help thinking about our member during the impeachment times you get a lot of times where a news channel would put you up with a quote but for ACLJ purposes just for audience out there, especially during this matching challenge in their final five days. One most important months of the year. The ACLJ affected a Fox news show like that and that is three times on Sunday, so all on all across the country multiple times will will is taking time to get people out our website address put together graphics he could see the map like that and encourage people is is something again, these are these are kind of new new think the ACLJ and for our supporters out there.

It's what were there were able to do all of this and take this to the next level because of them writing whether it Fox news oral brought that millions of people looking to earn listening to right now that the paper by the support of people that are doing the ACLJ and as we been saying throughout this campaign and we will continue to say if you're able, and only if you're able to quickly know a lot of people are really struggling, but if you're able, we would appreciate your support likely these months when we have matching challenges which means we set aside to other donors dollars that are available to be maps of your effectively, your gift is double which is obviously great but I will encourage people to do it and not to expand with and see what it does, you know, I don't know how many thousands of thousand cases. We have most of them will not go to court litigation.

Other people have to be what happened understand what's going on tell you folks it looks like Ruby taken the first action representing the skies were good work getting ready to take an x-ray, Ruby taken at first action you'll see from us for the school records this week specific to those heirs of the situation. We discussed to support the work of the ACLJ donate online ACLJ.org. It is a matching challenge month. Whatever you donate double the impact of your donation. Donate online ACLJ 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 $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms to you and your family. Give a gift today online okay live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and now secular particular phone calls at one 800 684 31 to the final segment is broadcast joined by Congresswoman Elise Stefan Dick lease is a good friend of mine from my wife's wife and Elise were together for a long time. And of course I she's been a great member of Congress, a strong defender of Pres. Trump. She serves on that house Intel committee chaired by Adam Schiff during that whole house impeachment.

I mean, I think Chicago became that she did become very well known as the political world and a lot of conservatives throughout the country. She was she's us right now currently serving in her third term in the House of Representatives.

She will be joining us live in the final segment of the broadcast. So I she represents New York's 21st congressional district if you got questions for her.

I would start getting those calls and now I let our cost reader know it's a question for Congresswoman Stephanie. That's it.

1-800-684-3110, 1-800-684-3110 should be joining us in the final segment of the broadcast. I will write if they had been in Washington DC and fan want to get an update on the school choice now act they see the Dems vouchered that pandemic voucher we talked about the stimulus in general. I know people are on pins and needles out there about what's going to happen economically let people know you during those two issues really go hand-in-hand this week.

As you know, leader McConnell is about to unveil today the framework for his proposed next round of stimulus. Obviously it's gotta be something that clears the house but Jordan as a relates to school choice in the school choice now act. It is expected that his outline is can it contain $105 billion for school age.

Now Jordan, there's a question on how that will be formulated and there are some reports that his proposal will say that at least 10% of that hundred 5 billion so little more than 10 billion will be eligible for private schools but Jordan, the school choice now act as many of your listeners will know that's the legislation put forward by Chairman Alexander and Sen. Scott would take that framework and go a little bit further.

Jordan we think go further in very important ways. It would say that that $10 billion roughly and that number may rise by roughly $10 billion would actually go to scholarship granting entities and then those scholarships could be granted directly to students through their parents.

Of course, to be used in any myriad of ways Georgie could be public-private charter homeschool may be some kind of hybrid option, but those scholarship granting entities would have the flexibility to do it in Jordan it's very important that these two things are happening at the same time, because the goal for the stimulus package is actually to get it done this way because at the end of this week. The unemployment insurance from the federal side expires now. It may take longer than that, Jordan. There may be a stopgap unemployment insurance past this week and it may take another week or so for the stimulus to pass. We just don't know yet about our hope would be that that school choice now act language gets incorporated into the stimulus bill and actually can be passed into law. Very, very soon. I think I think really it's essential Jordan for parents of students are planning for the fall to know that this help from the federal government is coming us were calling on the Senate and the house. Quite frankly, to adopt that language inside Sen. Scott and Sharon Alexander's legislation folks. I get so important that we can we get behind these efforts. If you got questions about that give us a call 1-800-684-3110 about the stimulus about the school choice now act and what happens next because we gotta get you give a lot of work going on at the federal level.

Now to and even those who don't believe you know that the federal government should be involved in education are getting behind the school choice actor St. Hafer to send the money out to these two schools.

We should be sitting at the parents instead.

During this pandemic, whether state has a voucher program or not, so that they could figure out how to best educate their child abuse because of schools making so many different decisions of the Sarge's decisions or in in these worst-case years we gotten too many of these request honestly and I say that not because we don't want to.

We would take on a thousand more troops. So many students with disabilities. Students it really tough economic situations not being offered anything anything to help their families were representing about the ACLJ were doing all this work because of your support. The American Center for Law and Justice donate online today ACLJ.org is a matching challenge month. This is the most important week of the month of July for the ACLJ because your donation is effectively double donate online safely and securely that we do all this work to represent all of our clients@nocostaclj.org donate right now, the American Center for Law and were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom.

Protecting those faith covering 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 or that.

We are grateful.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift 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, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when 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 like will show you how you personally. Publication includes all major ACLJ fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later, when Obama care means many ways your membership is empowering the right question of mission in life today online/Jay Sekulow Jordan Sankyo we are to your phone calls 164, 31, two, that's 100-684-3110 in the next segment will be joined by Congresswoman at least definite lease is someone who I get a bill for long time. I went wife and I worked with when political campaigns before before Elise became a candidate herself.

She was the youngest Republican woman ever elected to the U.S. House in history and she was a strong defender of Pres. Trump during the impeachment in a minute will play for you. Just as a reminder house how Adam Schiff try to go after Elise and she really let him have it, and that is the moment she kind of became noted to, I'd say that that conservative world of Fox News viewers and radio listeners. Supporters of groups like the ACLJ and she's in a battle in New York.

I've endorsed a lease.

If you follow me on social media. You know that but I want to have Rhonda to let her talk about some of the issues Chris Donnelly she running at me and she's dealing with all the issues that were talking about right now like the stimulus issues the education issues are the covert issues. All of that and more.

So if you got questions for her and maybe if you live in New York 21 or just have questions.

Remember, Congress gives a call let us know. It's a question for Elise, but really have to wait to the next segment until she saw that's what hundred 64 3110. If you have a question about whether or not you should go to ACLJ.org/help because you might need representation from the ACLJ, I encourage you to go to get to give us a call right now we can answer your question 41 800-684-3110 fared quickly because I tease a little bit about will get get into out to bars broadcast as well but let people know I did where the stimulus stands in the school choice now act stands which would provide vouchers across the country regardless of your state have.

It has it because of that the school closures and was put on with coated but also you know PPP, which is kept a lot of businesses afloat and people on payrolls where Zaza all that stand right now you journey people are following the news there can mainly hear updates about the underlying stimulus package, which leader McConnell is rolling out his proposal. He's been working on it with the White House. He's gonna roll that out today. Jordan of course both the Senate and the House have to pass a different versions, but in leader McConnell's bill, it's expected that there will be a couple of key pillars.

First of all, it looks like there will be new funds for the paycheck protection program extending that it looks like there are very likely will be another round of direct payments, probably something similar to what American saw the last time around, which was roughly $1200 per person up to an annual income of $75,000.

It looks like there might be some some liability for the for about five years inside the package that will be controversy.

I don't think that'll be in the house Bill Jordan.

And it does look like there will be some tweaking of the unemployment insurance inside leader McConnell's legislation so that is sort of the peace during that people will probably see on the news because that's the top line negotiation that's happening between Pres. Trump mainly leader McConnell and then also Speaker Pelosi trying to get something done before the end of the month. Friday, July 31 when the unemployment insurance expires a Jordan how the school choice now act that piece fits into that. Is that what Sen. Scott and Chairman Alexander want to do is take that hundred and $5 billion that is expected to be in leader McConnell's package and they want to say that 10% of that needs to be given to scholarship granting entities and essentially flow directly to students enduring I want I want our listeners to think about. In this way.

Why would you give those dollars to schools that are not opening wouldn't be much more effective to get those federal dollars flowing directly to parents and students to use in a creative way that fits this pandemic Jordan. If this is a coronavirus stimulus package. You need to spend all of the money including the education dollars in a way that addresses the coronavirus pandemic Sen. Scott's legislation would be a way to do that we want to see it incorporated into the stimulus.

This would be the way to make it happen. It would be this week the enemy that that that's that's how key it would be like, how long would it take House and Senate to actually get this done and to see if the school choice now act as incorporate so we know, like with the school choice act now be incorporated will know this week if it will and how long with the actual stimulus so that things start getting out to employers for PPP so that they can keep their employees on the payroll and the stimulus checks and things like that in a couple different things there.

During this week is the week of urgency for the school choice now act because events can be enacted this year and if the dollars in the stimulus package are going to be applied in this way it's going to have to be in the underlying framework and that is being negotiated right now Jordan I I am not super optimistic that they are to be able to reach a deal by Friday, which is when the unemployment insurance expires. So I think if they can't, and I'm that's not a done deal yet. Maybe they could. But if they can't, I would expect to see a short-term extension of the just that piece of the legislation and then a return to negotiation. On the other pieces so as far as how long it would take to get it implemented Jordan as long as most of the framework of follows on the cares act which as proposed by leader McConnell. Most of it would it would just be a replenishing of the PPP, it would be another round of direct payment of very similar.

That was passed in the previous form.

Basically, Jordan, the benefits would track along with it. What has already been authorized.

Therefore, implementation would not take very long.

So you if approved one week and signed into law by Pres. Trump.

I think you would start seeing implementation. The very next week right some folks again very important very important could be the next week. You may put the school choice now act to get people can sign the petition to ACLJ.org and fan that is really a way that we can show that grassroots support that exist for this evening states immune support in which a state thing to point out and motives were to talk about tomorrow.

Before Jordan by Congresswoman Lee Stefan deck as well but but that it did this would happen for your state, and for your prepared to those states, even in a state that has no voucher program at all and absolutely drug because what this would do this would not act this not create a federal voucher it would. It's just take a portion of the hundred $5 billion are targeted for education would take 10% of that, so about $10 million and give it to states, but states would be required Jordan to give it to entities that grants, scholarships, and they would have to meet certain criteria.

So it would run very much like a voucher program but would not have federal strings on it would pass through the states and go to the private entity. So even if the state does not have a voucher program. These dollars would flow to it and just just two quick points door not both on the public advocacy piece on the two issues that you been talking about today 65,000 ACLJ members have signed the petition calling for school choice and I can tell you that that is making a difference and in telling legislators that they want this to happen that parents want a choice, especially during the pandemic for the education choices for their children and just quickly. On the other issue that you been talking about as well. More than 1/4 of a million people signing that petition.

A standing with California churches. I want to really emphasize this very strongly Jordan because I think sometimes there's a tendency to say what was happening out in California. I don't live in California I live in a red state that is not happening here Jordan. It is essential that California be sent a very firm message that this will not be tolerated and that the rest of the nation is watching that will keep it from spreading Jordan so I just want people to really resist the temptation to think that that is on the other side of the country. It's happening in a deep blue state.

It does not affect me or where I live. That is not true Jordan. If the precedent is allowed to fall in a way that is not satisfactory, you will see this spread and if you don't address it at its root it will be in a locality. It will be in a jurisdiction near you very soon. Tomorrow the broadcast really get into this because we do for your weight as well.

Directly related to course the unmasking issue similar to get into that mort out tomorrow, but I did would let people know what else will be getting into. That's real Fox News has got this in their headline the source as an FBI agent actually used a 2016 briefing on election interference to the Trump campaign as a cover to question the Trump team.

So, in a newly this comes from a declassified document so real document not just a source obtained by Fox reveals that the FBI agent who delivered the defensive briefing to the Trump campaign on election interference in August 2016. Quote actively listened for certain topics using it as a cover to monitor then candidate Trump and Michael Flynn, a source familiar with the document said the document goes on was dated August 30, 2016.

Guess where it was filed. This was the document to let the Trump campaign. No, you know, just about the election interference which is normal that they would usually get updates on intelligence when you're going through your transition wedding, so they get that update but the document gets filed under crossfire hurricane not under briefing to campaign, but under crossfire hurricane the FBI's codename for its investigation into whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians to influence the 2016 election which we know is totally bogus dog goes on the source told Fox News that the agent who put together this briefing and then the note that was declassified and released, was also tasked with running the FBS FBI's investigation into my Flynn crossfire raised will be getting into that over that sub source has been identified was that big sub source for crisper steel got a meteor worked. The Brookings Institute was great friends with the owner he'll remember what she testified for the house Intel committee against Pres. Trump and his decisions over that of Ukraine that led to admit it, Peachpit it was a Brookings Institute guy, Igor get into that and are waiting on for your case to Marsha next Congresswoman Lee Stefan want to join us for that. Take your calls as well. Only one.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous record in our matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms gift today online ACLJ very special guest a good mind and someone I know many of you came to know if not said before in her earlier years as a member of Congress and the youngest Republican woman ever elected to the US House of Representatives certainly came to know or if you listen to this broadcaster. Watch this broadcast on television or Facebook or periscope you came to know her during the impeachment investigations in the House of Representatives as it because she serves on chairmanships committee in the minority side of the Republican side of the house permanent select committee on intelligence. I see I've noted Congresswoman Elisa Stephanie for a long time. My wife and has worked with the lease before before she decided to become a public servant herself and that she is joining is now on the broadcast. She represents New York's 21st congressional district. At least it's great to have you on Congresswoman Jordan.

Let me just first tell people to not we have blisters all across the New York in it in your district.

Also all across the country and I know you're also doing help a lot of help.

Your help and a lot of other candidates as well.

If you want to find out more about a lease you go to a lease for Congress.com that's EL ISC for Congress.com you can find out more about her. I tweeted out as well do that right after all the broadcast.

You can get more information. There, but at least I want to talk first about we just play for people who I watch a show on Facebook and periscope because instead of commercial breaks. We get to play videos for them and we played that exchange you that you had with Adam Schiff if you want to call it in exchange you been a true fighter and you offer present Trump, but also for for members of Congress on transparency and I think you know as it became a member of the President's house defense team during the impeachment trial in the Senate where where we saw each other there as well. I but tell people about dealing with because fighting back against Adam Schiff, you did it and and you really did it in a way that got a lot of attention from conservatives across the country.

Jordan for playing the party your listeners all across the country.

I feel that not only did I stand up in support of the President, but I did a pretty American people and the Constitution on the abuse of power that I have witnessed by Adam share faith unlike anything else that I've ever witnessed in my time in public service and certainly in my time of Congress, the illegal leak coming out of the committee. The manipulation of the media with this false narrative of Russian collusion which we know is false, has more more information comes out about the abuse of the FISA process last week about the absolute abuse which is incredibly incredibly disturbing when the FBI used the intelligence briefing as an opportunity to gather information against the Trump campaign. There needs to be consequences and what your listeners heard was the shaft opened up the salt impeachment investigation based upon his coordination with the whistleblower and yet we still have yet to hear from the whistleblower about how that coordination occurred in the Constitution and the reason that my questions and witnesses really caught the American people's attention is because the first time they were hearing their answer is because the first month within closed-door deposition in the basement dining out at the view of the American people, and I believe transparency is a hallmark of who we are in the country and I'm ship has just abused his position of power and we continue to see that you continue to fight for Chase. He unfortunately made chairman of that committee. I continue to fight that you also serve on the armed services committee. The education and labor committee as well as the house Intel committee, but on the committee in education and labor that committee use of the subcommittee on higher education, workforce development, civil rights, and human services. I know at least this is a top issue is were talking to Congresswoman Lee Stefan if you go to a lease for Congress.com that's a lease for Congress.com. You follow me on twitter. You can follow a lease had just weeded out her her on Twitter handle. She can follow her, but a lot of families are worried about education. I know it's that's worth a state issue, but that Congress is looking at taking federal action as well.

Education and certainly family and my academic across the country. They want certainty and they want to make sure their kids are continuing to learn in my district.

I know that families and school superintendents and teachers are putting forth proposals as to how we can get safely back to school this fall at Republicans have put forth significant funding to ensure that our school districts have the resources they need to do that hundred and $5 billion of direct aid to school districts and my concern of what we'd seen. I given the shutdown and the learning from home is not every student has equal opportunity in the sense that there's a huge digital divide in this country. So if you are in a rural environment of rural school district. In some cases in my district over 50% of the students did not have access to rural broadband that impedes their ability to get the online setting.

It also had significantly hurt our students with special needs and disabilities where it's been very difficult to have this remote learning that we have to make sure that were serving every single student and that means safely getting our students, teachers and staff back to school it's going to be different, but we absolutely need to make head or educating every kid across this country. You tell why cars released his rising star in the Republican Party in the House of Representatives and the politics because about all these issues she's fighting for you. She's fighting for us. She's fighting with us and she's not afraid to take those battles. She's in New York in the 21st congressional district. At least let me ask about. I know I would be talk about your work in Congress. But you're also because your house number run for reelection every two years. One of those elections is coming up this November and you got a poet whose been pretty interesting.

It had a all this broadcast world stations are working to tell you who to vote for.

I will tell you I've endorsed a lease that's been on my social media. Everyone knows that in certain campaigns put that out and I don't think many of you would be voting for potable proponent want to come on the broadcast love love to love to have them on.

That's in question, but at least tell people about who you're running against Mike and I beat my opponent last time by the largest margin in any Republican in the Northeast. We are very proud of that.

But it's really a choice between result in the ability to work with the President versus far lacked radical resistance.

My opponent supports a gun banshee was caught on tape saying that she was willing to like voters to get elected that voters are smart. They thought through it. She also voted numerous times to increase when she served at the county level and of course her hometown. He overwhelmingly voted for me because they remembered her record of raising taxes and fiscal irresponsibility sheet on record supporting a government takeover of healthcare. Supporting Medicare for all she's trying to run away from apposition.

NASA Detroit is very clear and she also is the number one pro-impeachment Democrat candidate in the entire country because as my strong will on the House intelligence committee millions poured into her campaign, mainly from Hollywood directors like Rosie O'Donnell and Chelsea handler who are not representative of the voters in my district we have very different values. So I'm putting on my record of results ability to work with the President versus my opponent who is just a fire (lucky folks.

I want you if you're interested because what you just heard what appeared to your 21 you know what I think you should do the endorsement of doors lease for Congress at York's 21st congressional district but I will tell you this broadcast. I think you just heard by now you should note it leads people to go to. It's a lease for Congress.com find out about your campaign.
