Making news leading the election as the media publishes lies about present from our US military. Talk about that more today. Jay Sekulow will live from Washington DC.
Phone lines are open for your questions right now so there are very aggressive attacks right now in the media debates attributed this would come in from the Atlantic about Pres. Trump say that the President has repeatedly disparage the intelligence of servicemembers asked that wounded veterans be kept at a military parades and of course it's all about of the sources. The headlines even worse than that Americans who died. Wars are losers with present said we would go to the facts. The facts are. There's a President of modern-day President it's done more to rebuild our US military, the present drop. He's talked about the visits to Walter weed read he's talked about the all the visits to our troops is gone to military bases, but most importantly he's given the best and newest tools available to use on the battlefield and to protect themselves. Think about this, but you compare the current five-year defense played with the five-year defense plan of for Obama in the Bush administration by that comparison, the Pentagon lost more than 250 billion in purchasing power in 2000 died during his first year at office. Obama directed the defense that the secretary Robert Gates to cut about $300 billion for Pentagon programs that let's move up to get Pres. Trump and the military in 2020 load tropes present trumps budget increase military pay 3.1% decrease the overall budget by 21 billion. Military budget has increased during all four years of present trumps presidency the current budget is north of $738 billion over $130 billion increase forward present truck took office in 2017 was roughly 605 billion, or roughly 60 billion less. The 2000 died. So there's the facts and statistics for you about just what the President has done for the US military when it comes to funding and making sure they got the best resources and tools available.
See the other side. They were to D for the military so it's a talking about that they were to say that the presence of how does it like our service better doesn't pay the right respect but this is the cheapest, most recently, Pres. Trump featured a disabled veteran I guess he I thought you'd like your putting those disabled veterans audio parades and things like that because most recently a disabled veteran appeared at the last night of the artsy convention. There were bit veterans featured all during the artsy during the four days I just this year Pres. Trump signed the bill to expand funding out eligibility for housing grants for disabled veterans. Pres. Trump awarded nearly twice as many medal of honors it. His first two years in office as Pres. Obama did the same. In October 17-20 19 Pres. Trump stood behind a podium in the East room of the White House delivered a speech. One of his favorite public events. The award ceremony for the medal of honor the nation's highest award for courage in combat. He said I like brave people. We have the right here, but the media doesn't report that I want to take your call, so that what hundred 64, 31 to to the President spoke into it. Mike Pompeo spoke into it as well as others.
Just think about that for about it and get said just quickly. This reaction Washington force. They ignore all the facts the numbers and they go to their dotted resources to say he has some disdain for for US military and veterans and those who lost their lives in combat, yet your noggin in a more specific downline, but this is such a bought bizarre attack because literally the only part of the federal budget. The Washington DC Democrats don't want to increase Jordan is the military and it's literally the only part of the budget that you that you have to have a corresponding cut in domestic plaintiff you want to provide a cut there for Jordan this day attack is disingenuous. If you look at the facts as they play out.
They they don't support this in any way shape or form. Share this with your friends and family for watch on Facebook appears to prevent some breaking news as well – Serbia and Kosovo and so I stay tuned for that and more information on this one 800 684 30 want to go to ACLJ.org will be right back.

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 life will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists. The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the what Obama care means to the prone life in many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to life question free copy mission life today online ACLJ/Jay Sekulow like this Jordan secular don't just take it for me. I would to bring it of our analysts here at the ACLJ retired Col. Smith to speak to this just absurd report in the Atlantic used to be's bags intricately stress Rick had a fair and down the middle. When it came to Ford policy and big issues but you know interestingly enough the same same magazine. The Atlantic had a little trouble had a little trouble last month because one of its writers claiming to be an eyewitness, fabricated a story about an a uniformed cop shooting an unarmed black child in getting away with so that's that's the Atlantic. They've got reporters who just flat out lie about the witnesses that they exited. They put out things like this which are have only anonymous sources it and what we said was, you know, this idea that this President has a disdain for the military will really doesn't add up at the actions taken or in the funding keys provided to the US military's I want bring in West Smith now because Wes up one of your jobs what your positions the military as a chaplain was to serve at a joint airbase Andrews when those American soldiers returned home, who were his loss. Lives were lost on the battlefield. Do you see any merit in calling this President, someone who who has a disdain for service members polluting law and the Dublin airport. I read that article and and it was used in but not in a good way. You mentioned all the forces are anonymous.
Even the four-star general that the writer claims of the source would not identify himself if he actually exist. Basically a slam on the President of the United States by Madison that's rooted, as we all know and Trump derangement syndrome, which is an illogical and contemptible hatred of Donald Trump that the echo chamber of the left and their allies in the media you mentioned the casualties in the plasma coming there like I did work there for three years, and Pres. Obama. The only time he came in my three years there just a few times when there were larger amount of casualties and only if the media on the other hand, I'll talk travel to Dover when casualties come and sometimes when there is only one or two casualties and sometimes even in the middle of the night of the morale in the military is the highest it's been a long time. At the end of Pres. Obama's eight years. It was the lowest since the presidency of Jim Jimmy Carter and there's a reason Jordan that morale in the military so high, he has rebuilt the US military President Comcast by increasing troop levels by increasing the budget for the department attached by buying new weapons platform and for the last three years running every year. Military service members have gotten the pay rate that did not happen in the previous administration, and so the article is his fault of any fact that not only are the sources anonymous. The one source that they actually credited with a White House staff person who responded to the writer of the article and point by point said that every allegation in the Atlantic piece was categorically false and I believe that because Pres. Trump is respected by veterans and by those who are still actively serving because he is patriotic – support the military along with law enforcement and in law and order in general and troops love that and most of the troops are very very thankful that Donald Trump is now the commander-in-chief said there Wes is so important that when you serve it. Dover is about to cave a handful times with their press there and it was a lot of casualties coming back that you know that Pres. Trump has come. Many many times. Often times is just been maybe even one or two American bodies of come back sometimes in the middle of the night side about the press is about honoring those Americans you know firsthand, but of course they Atlantic doesn't call you think these anonymous sources. We don't even know if they exist based off Atlantic getting caught last week with a reporter fabricating a story about a cash cop shooting a young black kid that was totally fake so yeah this is, again, I think it's just what were going to see going into this election is just the media doing anything possible to try to convince people not to go to cast a vote for Pres. Trump even by try to cast it was somehow anti-military with his Wes said is been a pay raise every year he's been in office for our forces the budget for the US military's got up over $130 billion.
He is rebuilding the military under Pres. Obama. It was cut cut significantly.
In fact, lost more than 250 billion purchasing power alone and that another 300 billion from Pentagon programs.
That was the Obama administration the Trump administration is not just got it back up to even is now over $130 billion more than that it was I think important point I was playing seamlessly from a source was there.
Secretary of State bipod payout. Take a listen correctly. I think I was on that trip as well but I can say for sure is never heard of this President now for coming on for years and never heard the President use the language that is certainly a set in that article: military suckers… I've never seen that indeed just the contrary he is always at the deepest respect you and West Assistant when I get my company was West Point grad with this is I get if they would've heard this kind of language probably wouldn't upset them to the point of residing I mean if they did if it was the kind language at the Atlanta company to go through all of it is just to be what the Atlantic doesn't do even to try look fair is to say, well, even if he does use this kind language we have to be honest that he's fixed the Veterans Affairs VA is that a time to fix that for veterans he's increased all military pay is increase the military, the budget he's gotten the military out of of wars that were his war zones are unnecessary.
He's got, he made sure he really I think the difference Wes is that this President unlike others doesn't just see our military men and women as chess pieces on a board, but he sees them as Americans away. They get killed. It hurts him.
So that is why when he does utilize military force is done, so it is a very serious decision like that raid to get back daddy fault or a big problem very reluctant to use the military and the mark of a good commander, not a weak commander and yet when he does use the military uses it decisively. You mentioned the budget again.
I was thinking most people don't realize that letter in the military and followed it at the end of the previous administration, and this sounds unbelievable but is actually true. The fiber gap in the United States Air Force were not like working in the Marine Corps aviation part of the Marine Corps, they will shorten one half of their allotted Marine Corps pilot and fighter jet.
This is a President who was categorically turn that around and I think this article in the Atlantic and their other people in the media that have the same slant that not based in fact, it is always based on anonymous sources.
When I read it I thought to myself, this article is the meaning of the military because it's attempting to use the military itself as a political pawn weapons against the President of the site and am not based in fact it is a is a rage filled fantasy against the fitting commander-in-chief injustice.
Present was just asked by reporters that preceded the Oval Office right now will have the x86 you think you need to apologize to the troops. He said absolutely not. This a fake story. Everything I think it's just for audio our audience prepare for a lot more of this and just they need when they need to do what work in view of the show is look at the facts. It was the Obama Biden administration to cut the military funded by these close to 500 billion would you include the person's purchasing power or over that it was the Trump administration.
Now it's got the funding back up to normal. Plus, $130 billion and is the Trump administration had such a focus on fixing the VA and yet that will all be left out of what is now a very partisan media.
I felt like today. We had to respond to this because the last MSNBC the boarding Joe's of the world the seed into the world they're going nuts with his transparently apparently unsubstantiated, Jordan, and I was glad to hear Wes talk about the budget because a lot of people don't follow this and this is that this is a truth I just want people to look at looking not to take our word for it.
Just look at what is happened over the last eight years, specifically under the Obama administration. The eight years leading up to the Trump administration. The strategy specifically has been Jordan and you can hear this out of the mouth of Democrat officials in Washington DC has been to hold hostage.
This defense spending. They've done it in two ways. They have done it where you cannot give and they will not agree to an increase of military pay or defense spending.
If you, unless you also increase domestic spending. We know how much waste is on the domestic side of the ledger door and there is been way more wasted just simply to get the military increases that Pres. Trump has requested and the second way they have done it. Jordan is they have not allowed cuts to wasteful spending.
You can find a wasteful program, one that everybody agrees is wasteful and you cannot cut that programmer cut spending to it unless you do what unless you also cut military spending. This strategy has been to hold the defense budget hostage to it like it is. Look at the factors don't take our word for just pulled up. That's been the strategy, a leading up until the Trump administration. Whatever our analysts on our radio TV production team ergo bread cc of this article is like the media pressing the panic button when you have polls showing present truck leading it. It's a vague get investigated.
He never calls like that .60 certainly should probably order to fight back against their lives reinserting what he calls 164 3110. That's what hundred 64 3110.
That's always go to ACLJ.org for the most updated information 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 created a free publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you personally and includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood would Obama care means many ways your membership is empowering the right question mission life today online/challenges facing Americans is freedom. Constitutional rights are under attack with the American Center for Law and Justice on the front lines projecting your freedoms and rights in court in Congress and in the public arena and exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do more work.
We remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member as well.
This is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACL media is getting you have to be used to be called that what you would call it fake news or just outright lies. These anonymous sources to make claims like this, like the President of United States after having this record available for years of boosting military spending rebuilding our military. Rebuilding the Department of Veterans Affairs rebuilding those VA hospitals that they work for veterans taking the budget back from how was cut almost 500 billion by the Obama Biden administration back down to where not even just even, but now it's it's an additional hundred $30 billion. It's been increase the budget has raised military pay every single year present truck has been on office. Wes Smith is talked about retired Col. West Smith talked about how he makes his trips out to Dover to receive the bodies of American soldiers killed in action, whether or not there's a lot of media there. It's 20 bodies lots of family or whether it's one in the middle of the night so I get none of that is in that article, the Atlantic, but I think ergo bread for Martin. I think a lot of us. We saw this we see this is the panic button or you have to make sure, as if to combat it immediately. You can't let that even discussion or narrative start because the media sees a guided opening. You're not just hitting back immediately with truth and facts you'll you'll you'll do you be open to hearing about this all weekend and next week it'll start making it into you would like, local newspapers and local news reports.
People who usually don't vote in every election but to vote in your Presidential elections will start say well while this is a good to be able to go into all those numbers because guess is I could give those out the fake news media input into those numbers in the Atlantic article.
I would go see him listen. This is present truck just moments ago addressing this in the Oval Office. Take a listen know I was probably not be around much longer, but it was a totally fixed and that was confirmed by many people who were actually there. No salary and races, but it really is is you know when I came military was totally elated and almost $2.5 trillion is all in Jensen's souls to God is clear is now in extraordinary that's from Pres. Trump directly let me I don't I take some of the phone calls kid is a kid in Missouri online. One kid welcome to Jay Sekulow Lodge on the air. Hello so upsetting why the media able to get away with complete and utter lies military and he constantly had military people with a man at anything I want.
This is a total lie and are able to get it away with it with immunity and it's just not right.
We need but what's interesting now is we have to push back and say that is that the goal is that we don't. The goal is that broadcast like ours we get focused on other issues, or we sue say all this is just junk we let it go because were not the kind of MSNBC viewer or seated person that maybe watching them get hoodwinked by something like this but a lot of people who voted November and who may be inclined to vote for Pres. Trump.
They don't have the time necessary to get totally educated on all this. So something that we we have got to push back. I mean, let me tell you what this is your knitting. This is one of those data points in the upcoming election of Pres. Trump is going to win and we've talked about the ones that are inserted different sides of the ledger and I still think that the economy and safety industry to give me numbers one and two but Jordan, this is going to be an issue that impacts the election and that Pres. Trump is going to win the splits on what does that mean that means the people that are looking at this issue are in a disproportionately vote for Pres. Trump and they are for VP Biden. I think both campaigns would would admit that Jordan so what is this, this is an effort to blunt the impact of this issue, it's an effort to throw disinformation at the issue.
So while Pres. Trump might still win the splits he's gonna win them narrower than he would have entering right now that I got a jump in breaking news your record now is that I forward a director of national intelligence is our special advisor the American Center for Law Justice but he after leaving the government continue to serve in role as a special Presidential envoy for Serbia and Kosovo peace negotiations and and Rick you're joining us via phone from the White House that you're caught in tell us the breaking news about what's happened historically between Serbia and Kosovo just now really I am here at the white walked out of the Oval Office after we had a historic economic normalization agreement between Serbia and Kosovo. This is one of those problems that have existed for decades, and we been stuck on political issues and political talk and politicians focusing on symbolism.
Pres. Trump wanted to do was to try something new in this Serbia Kosovo discussions and what he said a while ago when he appointed me was when we try to to concentrate on economic development and job creation. Why don't we show the people of Kosovo and the people of Serbia just how beneficial it is to have economic normalization, we can worry about the political normalization later but so many times politicians just tried to forge agreements without showing the people the benefit of what could happen and so we we just signed a historic agreement which had a whole bunch of economic normalization. Things like diploma recognition and and that hasn't happened between the two countries before they allowed.
Now a one-year reprieve on the recognition and recognition campaign between the two of them so for one year. We will now concentrate on all of the economic normalization of first ever flight between I should say a first flight in 21 years between Belgrade and Pristina capitals of Serbia and Kosovo. A railway agreement which normalizes the border and opening of the border for promoter agreements and this is truly historic and something that Pres. Trump believed could happen if we flip the script and instead of pushing unjust politics that we started to create economic normalization first and it has worked as you know I get Rick's record now serves as a special advisor to the ACLJVs also be kept of this role. After leaving his acting director of national intelligence is special Presidential envoy for Serbia and Kosovo peace negotiations. There's a part of this, Rick just broke that I think is very important for our audience and that is that Serbia as part of this deal has agreed to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and even bigger for the first time in history. Kosovo, a predominantly Muslim country will be recognizing Israel as a state happening and we actually had a conversation in the oval between Prime Minister Hilty of Kosovo, Pres. Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu and that was just solidified and there will be mutual recognition between Israel and Kosovo.
As you say, a predominantly Muslim country in Europe and we will have a embassy from Kosovo in Jerusalem. This is truly historic and Pres. Trump has pushed for it. It's pretty exciting.
Rick just finally got to sick its support to Americans will personally have a lot of economic interests in the region for US businesses will be able to expand, but we also have Albanian American Serbian Americans because of our American who care very deeply about that to make Americans safer be right back Jay Sekulow like to read more breaking news on the frontlines protecting your freedoms and rights in court in Congress and the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member thinking you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ line from Washington DC. So if you dismissed the final few minutes of the first half-hour.
Let me go back through it for you just quickly ACLJ's newest addition to our team is Rick Ricker now you may know him as the former acting director of national intelligence or former US ambassador to Germany. He now serves a special advisor for national security and foreign policy. The ACLJ George's other broadcast a couple times a week also was first written piece for the ACLJ was posted. I just yesterday on ACLJ.org. It's called addressing a crisis of leaks in Iraq. This moves to limit intelligence briefings to Congress to written form is a big step in the right direction. That's his first piece will be doing what each week, exclusive for the ACLJ that's up ACLJ.org share with your friends and family, but even though he left government service full-time.
He kept on a role as special advisor special Presidential envoy for Serbia and Kosovo peace negotiations over going on in the last couple of days in and finishing today in Washington DC and Rick just called in at the very tail end of the last 30 minutes to announce. He said he literally just stepped out of the Oval Office is at the White House right now with the leaders of Serbia and Kosovo who just got off the phone with Prime Minister Netanyahu and Pres. Trump and he's a special envoy for the situation there's now an economic deal between Serbia, Kosovo, which is very important.
There's also Serbia has decided it will move its embassy to Jerusalem and for the first time in history.
Kosovo, which is predominantly Muslim will be recognizing Israel as an official state and bill to get embassy in Israel. This is huge news. How folks think about the source you got that from an ACLJ special advisor for national security and foreign policy.
That is why we brought on record now the ACLJ team for moments like that for moments where he could step out of the Oval Office and give you our audience and update like no one else is getting Noah got that on Fox news. Noah got that unseated Noah got that on MSNBC. Noah got that anywhere else we could do that because you support the work ACLJ we had two great months, July and August are matching towns, but it is a reminder we continue we had to fight yet.
We have to fund raise throughout the year.
That was just reminder wide support to support the work ACLJ ACLJ.org West your reaction to the former acting director of national intelligence. Ricker now. Just in our special buys of the ACLJ stepping out of the Oval Office to update our listeners about what just happened.
Yeah, I probably will not hear that story and much of the media but is really an incredible story of the week.
One of the biggest stories of the last month or to think about it that one of the nation to recognize Israel moving the capital to Jerusalem. I mean, the bottom line is this person that gets results of people you know, depending on who you are. You may not like his personality, but in fact he is effective and this is just another containing a piece of that as he continues to really work for peace in the world on taking long-standing enemies like Serbia and Kosovo and bring them to the table, negotiating with them, getting them to basically agree to live in peace with one another. This is a huge storage or negative story. They have this economic deal realizing their economic relationships. This the second time. By the way, this is happened.
Remember the deal with United Arab Emirates in Israel that first flight massager cursor was on from Jerusalem to Dubai.
That happened under Pres. Trump you like his rhetoric you think is divisive it and making the world a More Dangerous Pl., Muslim countries record for the first time in history, recognizing the Jewish state of Israel today. Historic peace deals.
Abraham accords between not only Muslim country to golf in Israel, allowing Israelis and UAE Arab Muslims to travel to business easily between two other Serbia moving its capital like we did United States did to Jerusalem, all of the present Trump you like his rhetoric. Well, it certainly gets results with these world leaders.
We `your phone call 2000 684-3110. Why is the left pushing the panic button. This is the reason why 1-800-684-3110 challenges facing Americans as constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever with the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontlines in your freedoms and rights in court in Congress and exceptional track record of success.
But here's the bottom line we could not do her work. We remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times.
The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member thinking not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.you can learn more about our life-changing, member today ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free publication offering you the ACLJ's battle for the unborn will show you how you personally. Publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later, when Obama care me in many ways your membership is powering the right question mission life today online/this by the way open for it ACLJ on its click that to so that didn't catch this live cannot see that moment where art newest addition to our team are special advisor I Ricker now called it afterwards walked out of the Oval Office with the two leaders from Serbia, Kosovo, the Prez United States are on the phone with Prime Minister Netanyahu announcing this historic deal, which gets called the Belgrade proceeded deal, which normalizes economic relations between the two countries and includes Kosovo, which is probably Muslim, recognizing Israel for the first time in its history and Serbia moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem like the US did the present Trump because our special advisor. Ricker now is the ACLJ special visor for national security and foreign policy whose first piece by the way, to write a piece exclusive piece for us each week ACLJ.org just yesterday. That's right of the homepage ACLJ.org he is not only that but he's continued his role he left covered.
There was a special Presidential envoy for Serbia and Kosovo peace negotiations. After watching us on Facebook you periscope you see the photo.
There is Ricker now right there. He's to the right of while that the death was with Robert O'Brien who is the current national security advisor, you'll see if we get of these photos. This is historic photos that were playing now from these meetings and of course that that these leaders so as we continue the discussion today.
There is Rick he is next to VP Pitts.
While the present is it of course that's given the two leaders citing these records very important folks very important. That tells you the kind of team were siblings ACLJake the kind of team that can walk out of the Oval Office break the news to you, but more poorly than just breaking the news to you the kind of team who is also negotiating deals like that, which benefit the United States course the people Serbia and Kosovo and one of our greatest allies. I don't country you all care about deeply the Jewish state of Israel gives call one 800-6843 12.
That's what hundred 684-3110 let's go back to the folds I was going to Deanna Coley for Michigan online what Deanna welcome to Jay Sekulow live hello Heidi and you're out there first elected to the veterans hospital or doctor's office more easily waking hours and hours and sometimes working downstate while he did that everything you have a nice one another in other places in their complete done all it helps them. So my first so that's not inside the law against other sources right there they'll have they have got sources there anonymous sources. Of course, because westward at the only source that was named the Atlantic article was a source for the White House saying all this is lies was present. Trump is addressed.
It suggested Pompeo has addressed it so they have no Dave sources even sit as a retired four-star general, but they don't give a name. There so so that's what they hide behind said no. The Atlantic recently has been caught in their lies another reporter got in trouble for say he was eyewitness to a police shooting of a black kid that wasn't true. He wasn't there. It was a made up story so these news outlets are going.they have truck derangement syndrome.
You had these next two bots leading up the election, will the benefit of using anonymous sources during as you know, you can ask them questions.
You can put the data to them and ask what what about this.
Does this fit your narrative if you use anonymous sources. They don't have to answer, follow-up, and that's why they do it Jordan, I would encourage our listeners to key in on a couple of things specifically on this veterans issue. Not only has the funding increased in the accountability, but an increase of clerk. Clearly there is a backlog and there is a problem and that has started to write his self but Jordan, I think the most impressive thing to me that is been accomplished over the last several years is actually the White House VA hotline which is taken more than 1/4 of a million calls from veterans who need assistance during what the White House is done is they have staff that hotline with the veterans themselves are people who have been through these issues who are facing complications with the bureaucracy and Eric can help those who are in it now. Jordan that's the kind of hands on tangible reform that Washington needs because Luckett is great as the funding increases have been, and I think they were desperately needed, they are important. Just throwing money at it itself is not enough to actually accomplish the solution so much like we've advocated in the school choice space during their taken people who know the real problems and it brought them aside that alongside veterans who are facing those problems now and help them rot walk through a door and I really think that's been one of the most impactful changes that happen in that space. Think about the present in the VA was just a disaster term is a disaster.
We just got a call about how much improve the services, a bid of those healthcare services that those veterans deserve the rest of life, for they put their lives on the line for they serve their country lately split log towards a duty away from there for their children family their wife the levels here's present from this just moments ago in the middle of the peace deal with economic and Kosovo and Serbia the end of day recognitions of Israel by Kosovo of a majority wasn't because it's always refused Serbia say were to also move our embassy to Jerusalem like you did the United States and there was phone call with that Yahoo and we had record and of course have Oval Office to tell us all about this in the midst of this, the present was also having to address this ridiculous story and he talked about the VA specifically in improving the VA take a listen to almost anybody else you VA is doing incredibly well also.
Some things done from accountability.
Veterans joy is everything right now.
Right now the highest approval, 91% approval rating is anywhere close to VA in that short a time for such a really organization the vendors themselves did not want to go to did not want to utilize to a 91% approval rating. That's about as good as you get is any, hospital services is to be someone who's not happy so to feel like they could've gotten treated better someone who thought you have some problem they had any issues and this is while it still being reformed there already up to 91% approval in the present is still making changes to make it better that I guarantee that's better than most hospitals that exist private hospitals exist across the country and certainly better than government hospitals.
Unquestionably, Jordan, that's why they didn't include those numbers in the article. That's why they didn't talk to the veterans because it didn't fit the narrative in your and I really do think this goes back to the analysis.
We were given in the last segment of the broadcast. What would be the purpose of this article. Why would you venture into a space where clearly President Trump is outperforming the former vice President Jordan it's too blunt the impact of that issue. They know that their preferred candidate is not in a way on this issue said that the effort is to throw misinformation at its to muddy the water is to minimize excitement around an issue so that that particular issue area that particular set of voters is not as motivated to go to the polls in November. You don't want to make this about politics Jordan because the the issue itself is so much more important when you look at a lack of substance. In an article like this and you look at and lack of sources, a lack of sources that you can follow up with that's really the only conclusion you come back to Jordan. It's not actually about convincing the people who are being serviced by the VA, it's about minimizing the impact at the ballot box and again I would just one more time toward encourage people to go to numbers look at the numbers yourself.
Don't believe us. Don't believe the Atlantic article look at the numbers itself and decide for yourself with the truth is I say I suspect you will find that the truth is clear as day, and it does not at all aligned with what the Atlantic put out is what I asked you folks that it gives a call yet another segment coming up will take more and more your phone call so we can fill the formalized other slides open because of it taking calls throughout the show, but does ask yourself this is the left of the Democrats really want to engage in this they would make this the issue with Joe Biden's tenure as VP included Ghazi think about that is call 1-800-684-3110 also is 40+ years in government, including his vice President. He was cutting military funding not not improving the VA as you want really make this a top issue to make the board issue whether the military supports which candidate is. Let me tell you something they support overwhelmingly and veterans present from the numbers don't lie on that so very dangerous territory for the buying Papacy. There is that there say subtly that the military and try to convince moderates mobs out there grandmothers out there to say all that's horrible. He if he said that even though it's anonymous sources. So even those that have over it. Maybe I just won't. Maybe we need some I like Biden is so boring and stays in his basement. That kind of thing I want to take your because of that 100 684 31 to 40 of some economic data as well just truly outstanding. Of course doesn't get the attention it deserves. 1-800-684-3110.

The state of Israel but but there's an American impact there as well. I specifically I want to talk some on this VA issue. The get to over the economic numbers we get a lot of calls in there on the VA issue. Kathy called it from Missouri online for Kathy. Welcome to Jay Sekulow live your on the air were great. Thank you for starting from 20% service connected and thanks to Shirley had veterans chili both enabled and expanded my hands and was able to get a aortic heart failure right and to 13 had anything outside the VA and because of that life is been Lincoln's quality of life has been-I give that to our President. What would you say would be like in the VA like six years ago before Pres. Trump to try get a procedure like that done. We actually get go outside the VA system, but still needed the VA to cover the cost well where with better than normal VA had their hands tied greatly hands tied greatly is interesting Kathy because thank you for sharing their personal stories, Alice on Facebook rotor that my brother has used the VA hotline is made all the difference. He was so abused by the system before the words you so abused by the system before, let me talk to Stephen Missouri online. Three. Steve welcome Jay Sekulow live your of the year Steve break it up a little risk of CVD or line clearance was put on hold transit we could ship a clear line was to Jeff in Washington state on line 6.
Hey Jeff Grant wanted to give kudos to our President. Excellent work in the Vietnam War got denials got turned down a list last week I got a large check reimbursement.
I go see off-site additions reimbursed for mileage does a great job with the VA doing just let me just say thank you for your service and it's amazing because these the true story.
Stan, these are the stories that matter.
These this is the truth about how Pres. Trump is treating our veterans. He made these reforms ever hearing it directly from callers were calling in life. They didn't even know were to be talking about this with their their their personal stories about how it's affected them yet join I listen to Allison Kathy and Jeff and really underscores the point I was making just a moment about how this this work in the veteran affairs Bayshore and it's very very hard.
It takes individualized specific case-by-case attention is one of those issues where unlike a lot of government programs.
It can't be one-size-fits-all. Jordan and again I think it's very much like our school choice work.
You have to look at an individual case, and then provide somebody to walk alongside that veteran to get the care that they need an intern. I really do think the linchpin in in this whole strategy.
Yes, the funding for the VA choice and the others was important, but that VA hotline it's housed at the White House provides the opportunity for someone to walk beside these veterans.
I think maybe it was Kathy that said that set it the best it took someone to listen to the story and then find a specific way to provide a solution for that actually allow that case to move forward.
I think that's been the most important piece of this Jordan. Again, not just try to throw money at it.
You not trying to create a program you're trying to find a real solution for a real veteran walking through need, and I think it's administration through that program is done it very well, you know, folks. I think Steve's lines back I want to make sure take Steve's call Stephen Missouri online three euros a year. Yet we keep we got to forget, but by.and correct. Also, we could get the claims process to me, we, we heard that again. Even if you had a decent VA hospital in heaven so tied that if you need a procedure that would have to occur outside that VA hospital at the valve. The previous color was talking about for her husband that their hands were so tight they would've been able to do it, and his life would've been extended under the Obama Biden ministries, the claims would be rejected.
No more no more. So again just to come close on this part I think it just shows you, you can here lie after lie, but this the President has great respect for our military minute window. Let me say that again he doesn't see them as pieces on a chessboard is too many past Presidents have, he sees them as heroes who are willing to sacrifice their lives for our nation prefer freedom, but he he sees is strict only to be used in situations where there is no other option. If they are they to him. Each one of those life matters what West Smith said it didn't need to be 25 bodies coming back to Dover and about to press their for him to show up to bid what in the middle of the night he was there as Obama wasn't yet that these huge differences.
Funding of the military changes at the VA to just respect and yet the media wants to mislead you all that now that another thing the media would love to mislead you audit is the economy and fan. I just want to get to them briefly because the US added 1.4 million jobs in August. The unemployment rate is now declined to 8.4% was from 10.2%.
July is the first time it's below 10% since covert hit hard and the mandatory shutdown and that two week. I stayed home border went into effect incredible report from August Jordan and related the on the employment report is the one when you look at the economic indicators I was look at the most. I know were running out of time.
Your three quick points. Jordan jobs up across the board.
1.4 million jobs.
Unemployment downturn across all of the tabs across all of the minority tabs, black, Hispanic, Asian across all of the tabs unemployment down and then maybe just as importantly as anything Jordan. Even in the midst of this pandemic of wages are up and wages are up across almost all tabs as well, so again jobs up unemployment down wages outdoor net is the most important economic indicator across all of the lot of the others are to be flashier thing to get more attention, but whether or not the American people can return to work during the pandemic and is as the country starts to reopen. That is the most important indicator. Look for bright folks. We will continue course to keep you updated your social media, twitter, Facebook, parlor, places like that.
