Jay Sekulow I'm Dr. Felty schools in person learn line from Washington DC Jay Sekulow my approach is always that I had no say in whether I'm in Connecticut or in any other place is that the default position should be to try as best as you possibly can to open up the schools in person learning phone lines are open for your questions right now.
Call 1-800-684-3110 one for the children because of the psychological benefit and in some places even for the nutrition of children rely on the breakfast the lunches in school, proper nutrition, and now your host Jordan secular Dr. Fouts. She there was but one of the more careful now as he's been dealing with this. Debbie could cut it taken the lead on how to respond as a country as a nation to the pandemic. It is been advising the President. I would like to provide people to go this superhigh approval rater rating for Dr. Felty add they give nope credit to the President present trump for putting Dr. Felty in this position.
Sometimes I disagree that the case would give the President you have advisors but every he's there because a present trump and he is now the year we got all the school cases. Over 1500. Now families of contacted us.
We did get the response from Arizona will have more on that later to a probably at tomorrow's show as we prepare the next response back to Arizona to take those actions, but just realize the significance and then the significance that Dr. Fouts she is said we've got to get kids back to school.
They need to be at the schools in that learning environment it so critical to their development that even with coded, it is worth that risk of not having school in person out what is is is much worse then just doing this virtual learning from home that hasn't been working for people and he certainly correct that that has got to be the default and I think he is also correct that it's got to be the default for multiple reasons. First of all, of course, the benefit for the children both educational and psychological.
Also, Jordan, we've got to get the economy back up and running again, and without schools reopening are finding a way to make this work it's going to be difficult to do that.
There's a domino effect with the economy and so it's one of those pieces that has to come in the place in Jordan. I really think his comments dovetail are really very nicely with what we have been pressing over the last couple of weeks.
Look, there is an obligation on the part of school boards and localities to figure out creative ways to make this work. Those tax dollars have not stopped flowing from all different levels.
You got $68 billion from the federal level you got state taxes you got local taxes will school in all instances look like were used to probably not Jordan but that does not mean that localities have no responsibility to figure out the best way to make it work for their localities and and Dr. counties right Jordan, I think that has to start with a default that schools are going to open if there's a specific reason that they need to tweak that for one reason or another they can do it, but Jordan, it doesn't mean they don't offer an option, it means they find a better option if one has to happen in our firstname.lastname@example.org. If you go right to the website you will see, we've got a whole section for people who are looking for information on covert, 19, and schools and and it's email@example.com so that that'll be available for you and of course if you believe you need legal assistance because of your schools plan or lack of planner what they're planning to do I were still taking it hundreds sometimes a day of families who need assistance at no firstname.lastname@example.org/help and I will tell you will have an update on that Arizona situation for you tomorrow. That was the first action we took on behalf of of a group of these families and today we got a very special guest audience on his book launch day, Sean Hannity will be joining us for the entire second half hour of Jay Sekulow live, you admits that 30 minutes basically we Sean Hannity.

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, called mission will show you how you are personally support the publication includes all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist the ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right to life question free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/writer second power Sean Hannity for one segment joins us for the entire the entire half-hour each of the three segments of that half-hour. He'll be joining us out will be talking about your course will talk about his new book live free or die, but I know what Sean comes on will be talking about hosting issues that you want to listen to and get that dialogue and its unique to have Sean on as a guest rather than a host so with asking questions and things like that to get his perspective more rather than him, kind of asking others, so I think I get. I encourage you share this if you watch on Facebook and periscope shared out with your friends and family and be right out with your friends and family because I be. We got Sean Hannity coming up for the full second half hour of Jay Sekulow live today.
Now we can take your phone calls right now. What hundred 684 31 to what you think about the fact that Dr. felt she has said we need to reopen the schools you he's hitting on all the points that we've been hitting God with art with our legal action that we bid assisting parrots audit potentially assisting. Sod since I was on Steve Hilton's Fox News show we've have 47 different states plus DC where our attorneys are working it first action we took was in Arizona. They did respond by the way, in Gilbert Arizona. We will be responding to their response will have more for you. Probably all that to borrow on that broadcast of course were to do take more action in different states, but he's saying exactly what were saying, which is that your dish critical deeds here that it's not just is not just the education part. That's of course very important. Most important, but the food, the ability for the economy of Stansted to get back on track so people can go back to work and the fact that the infection rate you're talking to the top expert on this issue that has the highest approval rating of anybody the country is saying it so low, there's no excuse states there is no excuse teachers unions not to let children go back to school to hear from Dr. felt she is not to hear from some conspiracy theorist, this is Dr. felt she bite five action rate is so low that is very little chance of them being infection spread and you should feel okay about doing it but making sure that should do the things necessary to prevent spread again reopen the schools and fan I would take peoples because of this 164, 31, two, that's what hundred 64 3110. We are seeing across the country. The opposite is a lot of states schools that had said they're going to delay a couple weeks down the leg two more weeks so for Dr. felt she get out there and say put your plan together, you got delay a couple weeks and maybe add a couple weeks here. There are take less holiday something like that. Fight the teachers unions who are doing demands like Medo Medicaid for all things like that as part of their going back to school plan which is not even related but do get these children back to school if if their parents feel comfortable sitting up. I say have a virtual option because you if you got an at-risk parent that made the be the best option for you.
So schools the distinct smart that's easy to do because that's mostly what they were planning on doing anyways but but I hope that along with our work and with what Dr. found she has said these schools realize they gotta take a different approach to what they thought, which is that they were to basically have everybody doing this from home and not take into account the food that take into account the childcare cost. The economic cost to doing a program like that and the fact that the infection rate about children is so low that it it totally that the risk reward benefit here is even question and the thing that is frustrated me through this whole process. Jordan seems like so many of the school board rate on the state level at times had been focused on telling parents of students what they will not do what they can't do. When Jordan we said this time and time again, but it's so important that they hear this.
They have an affirmative obligation to tell parents of students what they will do, how they will provide the education that the tax dollars that he paid and had been promised to the students so will it have to look different and in localities, will they have to get creative. Will there need to be a virtual option like you said, in many cases, I think the answer will be yes Jordan, but if they have the obligation to put forward what those options are not simply to say were just not gonna take their students and by the way, and I think it's important for people to hear this, you know, Jordan, were not often wants to talk about dollars coming from the federal government is a big part of the solution, especially when it comes to an issue like education, but we have consistently said that we do think the federal government needs to help localities in this if they're gonna send hundred and $5 billion to states and low and local governments in order to help open schools. It shouldn't go directly to schools who are leaving in a reopen Jordan wheat we support the Sen. Scott legislation that would give flexibility to the states. This a you know what were not quite ready to open full capacity we need to give parent some options. We think there should be flexibility in those dollars.
So again I will just tell you, politically speaking, in Washington DC, and Jordan. Your unit read the tea leaves.
You know what I'm saying. It seems like too many just don't want to make any progress over the next three months because it they think it will benefit them at the ballot box. The American people of all stripes. Jordan have to reject that for our students and for our economy.
We have to start making progress. We can't just look at the political benefits or drawbacks coming up in November. We have to make progress for the American people know. Again, folks, I don't want to get a knuckled after teachers like when I say this by the weights teachers unions, but there's an article in the Washington Times. It says it teachers unions are holding anti-reopening rallies, so there actually rallying together coming together so that it but I thought this was good about covert but they're having rallies against reopening schools and they threatened to strike. This is why say you put kids first teacher second kids first teacher second. There's a lot of great public school teachers out there. Don't get me wrong, that probably hate the fact that there you did is doing things like this, but it is how gross is it that they are going to protest reopening your kids schools.
Think about that for a minute only to the photos. What hundred 684 31 two that's what hundred 684-3110 hit the ready to go yes go to Tim in Tennessee on light ones that it should question to welcome to Jay Sekulow live IPO area I live in the county that had let that happen.
One point that the county had been infected by the virus or document minuscule number and and that in the single-digit.
We are trying to reopen the school and we have a Maryland reopen the school but were being now bombarded by the legislature to know you care reopen the school on your own.
You can't go do what you want to do that it is their way to bite the governor quite legislature. They are accounting will have the problems you're having in the major study R to go back to school to see my daughter schools planning on going back.
I don't know if this assumption is it they say to the teacher in the governor's offices is things because of what's happening your specific county insurance the governor's office that the merit they are coming down from okay okay well let me tell you something right there. It's your bear, because I've not heard governor Billy of Tennessee's doubts anything about certain counties have. It did not open their schools affect Tennessee's bid one is but tried to stay on track as best as possible. Could things change between now and when school starts, yes, have things had to be delayed a couple weeks yes but I think your issue is likely with the bear Tim what I want you to do is if if you've got students in the public schools, and you're concerned about this. What you can to go to ACLJ.org/help fill out that form. Let them know you talk to George secular all Jay Sekulow live today on August 4 and that about the issue and that you try to figure out is it the county is the bear or is it the governor so that we could look into that for you and get you the right answer, but also see if the bear really even has that kind of a power to do so. So we need more information because Tim I really I've not yet seen an order yet come down from the governor of Tennessee could one come down shirt but not at this point really continue take your phone calls, one 800 684 31 to 20 hour throughout thereto as well to the left to start throughout in their off beds like the New York Times and Washington Post. No debates go by here that the guy will be 78.
Would it be if he became President supported in January should have debates about to be 6 feet apart debate more time than ever. I think we need debates because of her seeing these candidates less on the campaign trail less interaction with voters, but they know what it baiting Pres. Trump would make it more that tomorrow. They talk about the entity as well never shot hitting stories for the second half hour. The entire second half hour Jay Sekulow live so share this broadcast with your friends and family. Now, check out ACLJ.org will be right back. Only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition will show you how you personally support publication includes a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists.
The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right question for mission life today online/American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who are persecuted for their faith. Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life reports 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 more limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms you forgive today online ACLJ just to follow up on the last caller we looked it up and I governor Billy is outlined already. His recommendations for Tennessee school districts on how to return to school in person which includes guides out in person learning with their needs to be quarantines and how well those should be like if someone does come that was coded in the classroom if they didn't know it before they went to school or or you know how should that work teacher safety and more so this is bid outlined by Gov. Lee very extensively and it is not about shutting down any counties, so the issue that color had the mayor maybe try to blame it on the governor because they don't want to take responsibility for. But it's the mayor that's tried to make this decision so I hope he contacts us so we can we can assist there as well.
You got teachers unions holding anti-reopening strikes. We are are assisting right now is a bout I know about a thousand were already directly of God aside to attorneys on the other 500 or so right now to keep that number keeps growing in the morgue decide to attorneys were either just came in summer sorting through which issue within this issue there.
They have concerns about or we need a little bit more information before we can make that call to get to the right attorney so meet everybody to work were reach out to you or get it to people and were taking action now as well so in Arizona we take an action that happened on Friday.
On Saturday we added another client we've got another one at upcoming it looks like in Arizona and we got a response from the Gilbert school district out Arizona will talk about how were going to respond, probably on tomorrow's broadcast. I will spend some time on that because we got Sean Hannity coming up for the second half hour of Jay Sekulow live I would call it Indiana online to Paula. Welcome to Jay Sekulow live draw the air, and I'm really teachers united with eight on our really making it difficult for them to want to go back again and it very frustrating for parent and teacher. You have worked very diligently environment credit challenged by groups Indiana teachers united in the court going back into the contract that we are educators that are out there doing what I'm looking forward and I would encourage their children think you probably because you're one of those good teachers out there who you want to go back to your job you or they could safely understand the importance of being there for the students. As a teacher of their learning, but also as the ports of the family and how it impacts the entire economy and said that it's it's why you gotta make that distinction.
We talk teachers unions about attacking those teachers out there there great they work for. A lot of times it at pretty low low salaries work really hard to help. Ed sometimes really tough environments with with overloaded classrooms in public schools. It will lack of a by their resources a lot about their own pocket, but the teachers unions. They are the problem with organizing anti-reopening protest they had and ended Akiva's update to the stimulus because people are concerned, they keep hearing that. Maybe that second you know that there's a lot of problems that I want to make sure people know about that as well and actually think the two issues go together Jordan so I'm glad you you can ask about that because I think just like the caller you will find a lot. I was even a majority of teachers who individually would want to go back into the classroom when you talk about the teachers union.
All too often it becomes about partisan politics, it starts to become about what a particular move will mean at the ballot box. Come November, and entering the case of the teacher union in the hard left leanings that they have Jordan, I think in many cases they think of school stay closed. It would be better for VP Biden. I really do think it's as simple as that. And then if you look at the stimulus issued you're not just give you one narrow glimpse into the negotiations that are happening right now. I still believe the stimulus package is coming down the pike and will be approved in the next couple weeks of the Jordan that the two sides are fairly far apart on the stimulus bill right now and so there was a move. Just this week in the United States Senate to give the Democrats everything they wanted on the piece that had escape expired. It was the unemployment insurance benefit in the federal upper provision of $600 on top of the state assistance that is provided to Senate Republicans offered to give Democrats there a the exact level that they wanted for a one-week extension so that that unemployment insurance could continue while the broader negotiations continued Jordan. They rejected that and why would you reject that if you got everything you wanted inside the proposal and the answer is the same as it is for teachers unions. They think that there will be a partisan political benefit if things continue to deteriorate to the American people just need to pay attention to this Jordan are the teacher union for the students and are the Senate Democrats in this case are those who are asked, saying that they want a bigger federal unemployment insurance extension do their actions back up their words in both cases this week Jordan. They did not focus. This is something again what worker work ever to have updates for you tomorrow really keep up to get stimulus were to keep in the politics really keep getting into the school issue. Of course you got Sean Hannity we talk about a lot of these issues for the entire second half hour Jay Sekulow live coming up. She don't want to miss that we take out the final call. The first half-hour Ray in Georgia wildlife or ray welcome to Jay Sekulow live. Thank you, Jordan, and thank you for the great work you do. Hey, I'm all for getting the kids back to school that is not, but we also but empathized with the good doctor that they must wear math teacher and the kid need to wear math because it clear that that's the best way to prevent the spread of infection. Listen, I seek parents out there and it was tough with younger kids keep the mascot stuff like that. They have figured that out parents out there are over that issue. I think if they could start school. Therefore everybody be okay with that. You know that the does have an issue that if you do that might is less you got a medical reason for real with the mask which means you might not. Maybe you shouldn't be in the classroom yet because of the lack of theirs out of X either sent you this still spreading that kind of thing she got it, but I think the Basque issue. People are over the understanding if that will that's what it takes to reopen our nation's public schools. Everybody set aside over that will the teachers unions. That's the question who control somebody of the school districts and the superintendents the elected officials on the school board campaign dollars because I think you're right, everybody should do that. I think if that was thereby where Basque would be reopen youth at the parish the Russian divides many baskets they needed to make sure their kids got the education they needed and that they could get back to kind of normal life as best possible. Back working it out tomorrow as well. I would encourage you to listen because Sally Yates, former acting Atty. Gen. really bobos her time was Deputy Attorney General testified under oath for Sen. Lindsey Graham's Senate Judiciary Committee that's at 10 AM Eastern time, so will be able to have live coverage of that.
It's about crossfire hurricane. She could be testifying under oath publicly so you want to check that out as well and remember coming up next half-hour of Jay Sekulow live Sean Hannity is going be joining us for the entire second half hour to talk about his new book comes out came out today live free or die. That's what got in my hands. America the world on the brink go to ACLJ.org.

Places like Amazon prime stuff like that though delivered to your door and within an hour or two if you don't already have it live free or die. America and the world on the brink, Sean. It's great to have you on the broadcast Jordan well part of a fad effectively. I love your book. Thirdly, your data by attorney and felt very close to the family absent. I love the work of the ACLJ you guys have been transformative but yeah I don't know the exact number of times your father argued before the Supreme Court. I think it's 21, I might be off at anyone. 19 of the 21 days. I think you not see concise account with these ascetics aware of the actual oral argument say that's when you are you not just submit your party. You would but you have good oral argument. Oral arguments is done SS 13 because he didn't run for President on behalf of Pres. Trump representing him and that is so he depending on how that cases, split it's like he's like tuna half losses. All the rest were wins and and some of those words were the waves that were even fighting right now. Sean, with all the restrictions on places of worship and things like that but you know I think it is very cool about your book. Now that she has to go through. It is one I know you don't write a lot of books but to this is very current.
I mean it in the final chapter of the book you you and I've gone through this process you get into the coronavirus of the response by Pres. Trump and that what this is been like so this takes people through a whole host of issues, but it's that current well I love you know you know from writing your own book that it's a process. I actually thought about a year ago. The working title was always live for your America dies and I battled back and forth with the title and I decided to just put in the Latin at the very bottom live prayer America dies after the main title live free or die America in the world of the brink but yet what it was actually originally scheduled for release before 4 July and and I'll talk to the publisher. We all agreed that this is what we need to keep this book current. You have to have a lead time and I got in as much as I could possibly get in a lot of the make sure that we we had a very good field of the Democratic nominee would be what the Democratic agenda is and down the coronavirus response really amazing thing to me, Jordan, is that if you look at okay let's look at the President's response because the first identified case Corona was January 21, the people can believe it.
This year the travel ban.
He put in place was January 31 10 days later I actually first had found. She on about Corona on January 27 battled back on the air) in a while.
The New York Times was suggesting travel bands don't work, and who said the update the travel anyway so the President then to have his subsequent travel bands that he had a quarantine. The first port 5060 years. Where were the Democrats will Joe Biden was calling his travel ban hysterical xenophobia and fear mongering. The Democrats were in the middle of impeaching the President he saw the danger blotted ahead of everybody else. Nobody actually agreed that it was time that we needed a travel ban, but he did it anyway. It turned out that one decision there being it's incalculable how many Americans did not contract the virus and die because Donald Trump move that quickly and things would've been dramatically worse had he not acted so quickly, so both those of the first decisions that we also remember to it that you don't look, I know people have a right to be angry and upset, angry and upset, but we gotta remember China like they hid this from the wall rather than bringing in you the rest of the world and America's health experts and medical professionals, we would've been able to contain this thing likely their early if we were brought in oral talking about his brand-new book out today live free or die. America and the world on the brink. Go get your copy today are ordered online, the American Center for Law and issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom.

We are talking to our very special guest today on a very special day for him the launch of his brand-new book came out today Sean Hannity's live free or die. America and the world on the brink and Shawn continues to join us on the broadcast to discuss why he wrote this brand-new book.
Gotta remember China lied to the world.
They hid from the wall rather than bringing in. You know the rest of the world and America's health experts of medical professionals, we would've been able to contain this thing likely their early if we were brought in early, but they decided to shut down travel from Wuhan province to the rest of China and you couldn't travel the rest of China to Wuhan, but they were they allowed travel per move on to anywhere else in the world and with it the virus then went worldwide and now we have the worst pandemic 1980 so you know we have all that if you go through the process, the timeline, etc. you know how is it possible that all of these medical professionals and doctors and researchers in and knows the project models that were one point pain to an 1/2 million dead Americans and then they want as low as only 60,000 and 80,000 were at 150,000 now, but the you know so they got a lot wrong.
I mean I really do respect Dr. Faucher. These are not words this guy dedicated his life to saving other people's lives, but remember we are all like to eat out a lot to keep things wrong a very crucial time.
The one thing that the President got right was he recognized early this could be bad. Let's take the precautions necessary. The next thing that the President did was it was the fastest, biggest, largest medical mobilization history now is at the epicenter of the Jordan, and I can tell you are member Saturday afternoon, I just went out of my deck to get some fresh air and polite way. My hat off my phone per minute love you Lincoln in the last 36 hours. We have 18,000 confirmed cases in Long Island alone, and I'm talking to friends of mine that worked at local hospitals and they are telling me this to become a total by the way, I dedicate this work to Adam Shipley, congenital liar, a total ship show.
It was bad. You know, and they were overwhelmed they were. They were in trouble.
It was it was hitting a crisis point. Now, in early March. You have the mayor of New York, telling people here are my recommendations where you need to go out of the town for March 3-6, but whatever the date was an Andrew Cuomo arrogantly saying I know like Pete to the mail you your walk. You know where New York is. We have the best medical system of the world is saying that in March. Then he scream and by the end of the month. I need 40,000 ventilators O'Donnell truck was able to mobilize quickly. Ultimately now we can see in the rearview mirror.
What became the fastest largest medical mobilization in the history of mankind, and he built the hospitals demand the hospitals. He provided the man down the field the glove the, the, the therapeutic medicines even converted the hospital to cope with 19 capability. Most of those hospital beds that the President built remained empty. The Javits Center minute was like the military comes in and they build on the entire hospital for coded it was but rarely use it all thousand of 3000 beds use only 200 of the bed. The thousand, but may be ship comfort again converting a cold adman by the President ill providing all the PPE it was close on ventilators but we never ran out of any ventilators we did. We always had enough mass.
We always had enough love, barely working out that keeping up the things that been depleted by Obama and Biden and they never replenish that and you get all the Monday morning quarterbacks, but we were able to do it and then we find out now. In retrospect that the one thing that did remain certain like were a little surprised when we saw these hotspots and we seem we see now, I think, what is the beginning of the flattening of the carbon in the Sun Belt meaning Florida and Texas and Arizona but with the President was able to do is you know very quickly identify the needs and send everything in the one thing that remain constant, was older people with underlying conditions, health conditions and compromised immune systems for the most vulnerable. Okay, so Rhonda Santos in Florida I mean is getting criticized is I only said it was when not a matter of if we would have hotspots that we have resurgence anyway so he protected the elderly population in Florida. If you look at the total death: Florida if you look separately at the total death toll of Texas and then you look at the wars one day in New York. Well the number in Florida and the number Texas was still lower than the one more stay in New York as we learned later on March 28, the Adobe Gov. issued an executive order mandating that nursing homes and long-term care facilities taking covert positive patients and that it was followed by the New Jersey governor just a few days later that it was followed by the Pennsylvania governor and then you have the absolutely ridiculous Gov. Witmer. These governors did a horrible job. The governor of Florida did do a good job.
Now that doesn't mean that you not have resurgence a hotspot. But at least we we went in and we protected the most vulnerable population.
And if you look at the but nearly 33,000 deaths in New York. Well Florida is that 6000 in the same with Texas and and they had it as bad with the second wave is New York had it with the first way. The only other difference to his younger people are getting so in the idea that you can shut down the economy and expect anything but economic disaster is ill imagine if the economy fully shut down Jordan because he will what happened in New York at the farmers stop farming if the Packers stop packing the trucks. The trucker stop trucking.
Guess what New York would've starved to death. The medicines that the PPE that the mass but glove down the shield wouldn't of had any of it and that's why became an advocate of mass because every week I go to my local grocery store.
My local drugstore and everybody was in a mask and I talked to everybody, as I always do. It can shut up and I got to know that there wasn't a single person at my grocery store that ever got COBIT 19 same with my pharmacy and this is right in the epicenter of this so anecdotally I said okay the mass of working and that's why became an advocate of it. But remember this, to now the President added to this simultaneously operation warp speed for now and in the final trials final stage trials. But there are none. AstraZeneca, Pfizer, you know, when now bringing back doctrine with Kodak this big announcement took place this week in terms of the agents for the medicines that we had outsourced over the years the China wheat we can't we can't allow ourselves to be dependent on another country on an issue such as how so that now changed and overall everything the President done that nobody was perfect.
Does the medical information was was mixed. It was confused there was conflicting you had, you know I dropped a call or put is a great example because the present. You know why I have this Dr. Daniel Wallace early April.
April 6, wrote a letter this man has been at the premier most knowledgeable expert on hydroxychloroquine and he's he's been literally is the largest Lupus practice in the country and he wrote the textbook on locus of they use hydroxychloroquine 400 peer-reviewed articles also rheumatoid arthritis that is written extensively on antimalarials and he said in his 42 years of dispensing the 65-year-old drug hydroxychloroquine. He's never had a single complication that resulted in the hospitalization, and then he went further and said the risk of using hydroxychloroquine is nil, and less. You might get a rasher or something minor like that, and yet the world was told that by our media and by Democrats politicizing you know even a pandemic that it was going to kill you. Well now we have two more studies before study the New York study that said that actually used early played a very big role in keeping people alive. One article cited by the media. They had to retract that that it would take risk and we were told not to wear a mask you first received mass because if you wear master take you if the frontline then it was like must wear a mask and became of how we kinda got back to the point where people realized yet. We probably should be wearing mass, especially insides places where we can socially distance regardless of the if you're in a hotspot or not.
Right now because hotspot can pop up pretty quickly. Let me ask you shut about this to. I think the importance of books like if people are receiving this today on launch day a shot in his brand-new book live free or die America in the world on the brink and I think what's important about books is that even people they watch your show every day to listen to on the radio but it was the broadcast, like ours, they stay up to speed, but often times I mean we been inundated these last four, five, six years with information that ties together and its top just to keep it on your head and by just watching or listening and I think books like this what they do is they think they tie it all together for people to reminders of all of this and how it interacts together folks will be right back was Sean Hannity talking about his brand-new book out today live free or die America in the world on the brink. Go get your copy today ordered online, will be right back only one. A society can agree most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me for limited time you can participate in the challenge becomes $20 gift becomes 100.
This is simply would not occur. Wrenching challenge make protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms. Today online okay Jay Sekulow we are talking to our very special guest today on a very special day for him the launch of his brand-new book came out today Sean Hannity's live free or die. America and the world on the brink and Shawn continues to join us on the broadcast to discuss why he wrote this brand-new book will come on the radio three hours a day on television, on our night and I realize, and I even realize now that I can't spend four hours a day every day and go over the depth and content that I'm able to bring to the book and I saw this coming.
Over a year ago. I know this will be, it was becoming the biggest choice selection and all in history that and I didn't even know how right I would be in this plan that were now you you got this ghost of the candidate hiding in his basement bunker. We know Whitney can barely even get get a podcast on the air, fumbling what state he is and what day it is what the office is running for ghetto we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created are endowed by their will get the thing you know the thing a Jordan.
The thing would be God, the creator of everything and look at what he done he done something. I think it's a sign of weakness.
Joe Biden now has adopted his economic czar Bolshevik Bernie is plagiarized the exact words of his own economic plan is now pledging trillions of dollars in his new green deals are is the Congresswoman Alexandria, County of Cortez's guns are is Beto Bozo Rourke allows gun confiscation and any couple OC and Schumer and himself with 125 years of swamp experience and they haven't come near anything they don't do anything that would merely match that success of Donald Trump. What is been able to do in less than four years, and I asked all of your wide audience of your own coast-to-coast to answer the question in their own mind.
Can you identify one single thing that Joe Biden is known for that. You would say has been successful in that is made this country a better country. Now if you got a run is the most radical socialist on the planet. What have you done that proves that socialism works right now if you want to know what Joe Biden's America will look like. Based on his comments about police have become the enemy or Obama's comment that he made last week, which are all Dara. There are police said our federal troops that are here gasping and using batons on peaceful protesters which is a lie and then going on to ghetto every two years and four years the race card is played. Let's let's divide the country will along racial lines must provide rich versus poor old versus young we saw that what is given the eulogy to John Lewis which was disgraceful and full of lies and so now you have this. The stated agenda and I'm saying to people better wake up because this is a live or die moment. This is America literally on the brink the world with it so goes America, so goes the rest of the world and that their policies as stated are ever implemented, then the greatest country God gave man and I mean that with the that eight that relies on liberty and freedom of the belief that rights come from God and not from man, and not from governments and that you know were endowed by their Creator. You know with with inalienable rights like liberty pursue the happiness you can't pursue happiness and liberal cities like New York, Chicago, Portland, LA and Seattle.
If you don't have basic safety and security and all of those cities. What I have in common that been run by liberal democratic mayors for decades.
All of those cities share another another thing in common is that there educational systems of the worst of the long well if you if you want to climb the ladder of success to pursue happiness while they failed miserably on that front as well and then look at what is government done well why would Obama care do million because the doctors millions lost their plans and all of us are paying on average 200% more in spite of the other promise, and the last time I checked the other big government programs that promise everything so security set up a bankruptcy and Medicare set up a bankruptcy so if the new green deal in the socialism that they're saying they will implement is implemented, all chapter of the book socialism a history of failure, America will become unrecognizable it is.
It is as clear as anything you could ever do what they're saying they will do will destroy the country that is advanced the human condition more than any of the other governmental system ever designed by man and given to us the liberty from God. God given rights divine rights versus the state given rights and and that's that. I mean, it comes down to energy independence or eliminating the lifeblood of our economy. Amnesty versus border security. The United sanctuary states of America or Law and order it comes to law and order and safety and security in cities or you don't have a you have anarchist running while the been supported by politicians and you have the Supreme Court they like the fact the court then you have the issue of raising taxes through the roof which Biden is running on versus lower taxes and limited bureaucracy, energy independence, all these things and I'm not even talking about foreign policy is never been a greater friends of the state of Israel.
