Drinking Pres. Trump will announce Supreme Court nominee on Saturday and this is the vote to confirm that nominee put them on the bench will talk about today Jay Sekulow live live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow seen this movie before is not gonna work. That work will Cavanaugh. We got the votes to confirm by Justice Ginsburg replacement before the election.
Phone lines are open for your questions right now: 1-800-684-3110 or in the committee the nomination committee to the floor.
The United States Senate so we can vote before the election. That's the constitutional process and now your home secular offices. I did a web video right away.
It's actually already was breaking news that would suit her Mitt Romney's pledge to support or vote on present Trump Supreme Court pick Republicans have the votes necessary to confirm a constitutional conservative Supreme Court justice that will be nominated by Pres. Trump that announcement by Pres. Trump will come on Saturday present. Trump tweeted that out this morning. She got Cory Gardner he would came on board last night from Colorado sunshine. It is radio broadcast with Dr. there was someone to watch a course Mitt Romney so Lisa Murkowski Susan Collins it's fine whatever they want to do what we got 51 on allowing the boat to move forward and I think because of Murkowski make they could still vote for the nominee. After that vote by the way other type should devote move forward and I just did that you will need the vice President Mike.
So right now the only thing Democrats can try to do is come up with some and I put nothing past him. I do not declare victory.
By the way, we don't even have the nominee's name yet, but it is I do trust the present, Trump is going to dominate some of these can excite all of us going into election that would make sense and and and people like AB Cody Baird certainly would excite the base. That was a liberal base also be enraged excited by this baby, but their excitement level to better understand their their their enraged bit on this.
Will this encourage their base to turn out. They may go too far and in fact turn off independent voters because the burn it down the pack the court the less stability they want to cause more instability, more government trouble in our government.
Not sure this could encourage a lot of moms in the suburbs to vote their way if they start burning down Washington DC during these hearings. Organizing varies all very devote every very careful for couple reasons stored in the first one is just a purely political one.
This issue of the Supreme Court in appointing justices to the Supreme Court always animates the right more than a dozen or less that they focus on this date actually risk driving the Republican base to the polls more than their own, and the second one is a more practical one torn if they try to criticize the Republicans for moving forward on this. Virtually every single senator that they are gonna try to defend and their Presidential nominee Joe Biden is on record from just a few years ago calling on the Senate to do the exact thing so there's just no substance for them to stand on and in a year and in a cycle and in a time where it does often come down to politics.
The politics of Jesus do not play for them on this. The look I think they would probably be better off condemning the violence in cities because I think that's what's can animate the votes in a lot of places that decide the statement is the problem is there to encourage more violence during the Supreme Court not to be a very violent Washington DC and violence outside the senator's homes. Republican senators homes and they're going to be encouraging that kind of rhetoric that leads to that violence. But maybe this is huge news in Washington that we have the votes to put this nominee, whoever that may be six days whoever she may be on the court and this is fugitives, but is huge news and I deserve this morning that Mitt Romney has decided to go ahead and vote for the President nominee. Murkowski and Collins again have the refuse not refuse to participate in the process and want the new President but I think the fact that Mitt Romney has come across Sen. Alexander from Tennessee and some of the others Cory Gardner and so forth. I gives us the 51 votes. We don't have to go to the tiebreaker you have a President you have a vacancy you have a Republican Senate do it. Yet they ready to fill that seat sign our petition ACLJ.org it would take your phone calls and questions one 800 684 30 want to be prepared for war.

And that's exactly what you are saying the American Center for Law and Justice defend the rights of life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold 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 means many ways your membership is powering the right question for mission life today online/Jay Sekulow like this is key to get into Iran sanctions. The presence could be addressing the UN Gen. assembly is doing it is doing it remotely. So it's very different. That is been in the past and nobody will be addressing in the focus is been on the snapback sanctions that went into effect last night on Iran big news. We will talk about that in the next segment. The broadcast world to be talking at the Supreme Court all week and that this is you are bread-and-butter to ACLJ nominations and once we have a nominee, which will be on Saturdays is getting you all the info about them. Obviously different motors like AB, Cody Barrett, there's again Bob Barber the go others. There's others every day and I think that which we can spend time on the nominee because we know that is Saturday. I will have time to do that next on the old next week's broadcast right now was did you work with mechanics of the Senate politically coming together so that it would require VP Pinson was a copy of the fittest of fitness margins to get this nominee and fill this seat, which is exactly what Republicans have got now the votes to do listen to Mitt Romney picklist when there's a nominee of a party that is in the same in the same party as so the Carlin decision was consistent with that and the decision to proceed now with the President comes nominee is also consistent with I came out of the side of and make a decision on that basis. Mitt Romney was someone everybody was waiting for after Murkowski Phan and Susan Collins came out not because he was up for reelection or but because it is moved during the impeachment trial, which was even given the Murkowski and Collins would not make a move like that where he voted to impeach on one of the counts. He was the only Republican to do this, he voted like half was like a again. It was a bizarre move by Mitt Romney, so people question did this, he had this dislike of the President so much that even if this nominee could be somebody he would've picked if he had become present that he's got this dislike the President enough to try and scuttle this obviously he does, it came through to him the message was clear is here a Republican senator you were elected Phan to be a Republican senator act like a Republican Sen. don't want to be in the Murkowski and Collins world and Susan Collins honestly acting this way is like I don't know she's like signing her way out the door because what Republicans you can get excited about heard made by making moves like this. She's Artie way down to the polls. Yeah, I actually think politically it is risky for both Collins Murkowski, maybe even especially Murkowski and I she's not up for election this year Jordan.
But in a state like Alaska. I think that that might be something that would follow her, let's see if they reevaluate. But what yeah everyone all the eyes run Sen. Romney because he has departed from the President on some major issues. Look, I would say a couple of things. Let's let's say there were three Republican senators, the decided to vote no. Just want to stress this is still perfectly legitimate for the vice President.
He serves as the lead of the Senate to cast a tie-breaking vote. So even without Mitt Romney's but I still think the nominee had a would've been confirmed, but I do agree with you Jordan. It is better if there is a clear majority inside the United States Senate and I just wanted to echo one sound, you play during the break Jordan other some of our listeners might not of heard a Sen. Romney part of his statement said that a liberal court is not written in the stars Jordan that echoes something that you and I talked about yesterday. This he doesn't belong to President Trumper Pres. Obama or Justice Ginsburg or any Sen. it belongs to the American people and when they speak and it sort of pushes the court in one direction or the other just what Jordan that's how the founders intended it. Take a listen to Mitt Romney bite 16. I recognize that we we may have a court which has more of a conservative bent that it's had over the last few decades, but my liberal friends have over many decades gotten very used to the idea of having a liberal court and that's not written in the stars. Mitt Romney remember from 2008 and in the past with his attempts to run for office again until 2012. He was the nominee around you.
It was still very friendly. The way he said it Andy but like still taken a shot at liberals and saying you know what liberals you get used to this would not written in the stars for you. You don't get your that the Supreme Court isn't liberal forever because that's the destiny of the Supreme Court and right now it's about to go as conservative probably is. It's ever been, at least in the modern time of the Supreme Court and this I don't. I keep looking like okay, they talk about possibly prior to impeach the President takes a lot of action from the house. I don't know if they have the will to do it it this quickly or if there is Tri-Star impeach him, but I think it's the Senate. I mean, that's more than 40 days. Were talking and he like Lindsay Graves about getting this done in 41 days and it will be done in 41 days. You know growing up and going to law school in the days of the Warren court in the Burger Court and the courts that we have been used to has to have in fact sort of instilled in the American people the idea that the court of this wrinkle United States is a liberal left-wing organization the Hugo Black's of the world.
William Douglas is of the world with the oral warns of the world and we said this is the way it is, will now it's changing it's not that way. We've altered the. The scope of events and I think Mitt Romney is right. It's not written in the stars is not fated that it has to be in a left-wing liberal posture all the time and we are moving in the direction of a conservative court. Notwithstanding these sometimes flip-flopping the Chief Justice Roberts has done so what if it's moving in that direction.
That's the will of the people they've elected a President they've elected a Senate who is more right of center in their thinking and within elected and were going to confirm conservative justice and its and that's the way in the evolutionary trend that has transpired. There's nothing wrong with that.
It's the way the country is moving and we need to follow that direction. Now I think I can folks retake your phone calls or 1-800-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110 IU Mitch McConnell same present from somebody will receive a vote on the floor, the U.S. Senate, Graham thinks is important that we proceed expeditiously to process any nomination made by present from to fill this vacancy before before election day, or by election day and now we got Sen. Romney on board is key enough, then this is what I wanted to go to you on. I'm sure our listeners are interested in this one quiver you what's in the quiver rep really of the U.S. Senate because he house action.
I mean they don't have any role to play its record nomination the starts of impeachment thing and we then enter move awfully quickly and they will they be losing the election, it would lose hundred. They may lose the house, which was a really been on the table much in this election cycle, but then what is what what could Chuck Schumer do at this point to try and stop this is what nastiness should we expect yet that that's the right focus. George's limit is quickly comment on the house. What statehouse did pursue impeachment and send it to the United States Senate.
Here's what the Senate would have to do the following day they would take it up they would laid on the table and it would take all of five minutes to move past it. So the idea that it would waste the Senate's time is just a fools errand I actually challenged Speaker Pelosi to try that she will feel the result at on November 3. Any right in United States Senate. Jordan I here's what people need to prepare for and I just can shoot people very straight is can be scorched-earth to go to the Senate Judiciary Committee and whoever this nominee is there to be attacked and and Jordan, here I am to make a prediction. I think the nominee is can be tacked tacked mainly on her face and and this would be true for any number of the nominees that have been talking about a but we saw it telegraphed with with Amy Kony Barrett and Jordan, I just might want to reference a special advisor to the ACLJ Ricker now because the Washington Post took a shot at Amy Kony Barrett and and was going back to some of her writings were.
She talked about a legal career.
Being a way to advance the kingdom of God. You know most people of faith regardless of their denomination think their entire life is about that right.
Here's what Rick Grenell said to the Washington Post.
He said the Washington Post comes out swinging at Christians. This is a basic tenet of Christianity to stop the bigotry but Jordan, that's what organ is seeing and hearing they try to use language that if if you do for not familiar with the Christian faith. You might think it sounds you know outside the door, but it the majority of the country is pretty familiar with Christian faith and whether your black, white, Hispanic, you know Catholic even evangelical Protestant or mainstream.
Part one of the head of the denominations I get or Orthodox, advancing the kingdom of God.
This is generic language in the Christian faith generic ecumenical and because these Washington Post who are so out of touch with normal people.
Writers use language like that see this is how Joe Biden loses election horrendously bad is because the people that cling to their gods in their Bible.
This is even that this is just people go to church people who consider themselves nominally Christian would understand language like this nominally Christian would understand language like this where you take your calls and come back returned back to the snapback sanctions on Iran West Smith is good be joining us in the studio for a Col. Smith.
We join us because that's important to retake your calls in the Supreme Court on the ambient they will stay with us and that may be joining us by phone. Try to see if we can get him.
He's traveling as well. One 800 684 31 tended to talk to us on the air. That's 1-800-684-3110 problems we get back will take a phone call right off the top of this report will get into the Iran issue also folks.
I encourage you sign our petition.
Let's get this seat built ACLJ.org sign the petition today that doesn't cost helpful or grassroots work ACLJ.org sign the petition will be right back only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've 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. Publication includes all major ACLJ were 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 mission life today online/challenges facing Americans is freedom or constitutional rights are under attack important than ever to stay with the American center for Law and Justice on the frontlines projecting your freedoms defending your rights and courts in Congress and in the public arena and exceptional track record of success. Here's the bottom line we could not do more work without your support, 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. Thank you. Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ God where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ Jay Sekulow you back to the Supreme Court. Big news today because we now know the votes are there in the U.S. Senate won't take VP Mike Prince.
I think that even Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski may rethink their position and I think their position on whether you go to the cloture. Whether you actually vote yes or no is probably different to but I do want to spend some time on Iran because this is all seal this kind of music it's loss. If you don't talk about it directly. Could happen. Late last night that the President of the nicest present trumped has reinstituted via new Executive Order, the UN sanctions on Iran imposed new sanctions on Iran's export controls on more than two dozen entities and individuals that support Iran's nuclear missile and conventional arms related activities. It's also critical to enforcing the UN arms embargo on Iran. The administration is imposing new sanctions and export control measures on 27 entities and individuals connected to Iran's proliferation networks. These actions target the atomic energy organization for Arad and Iran's nuclear nuclear escalation. The Iran missile or's organization that should heed which is what the name of this is our modern industrial group and to Iranian entities for their involvement in the transfer and acquisition of conventional arms so this across the full arms embargo and my dad is joining us right now joined by phone is traveling, but that this is this is also very important news like those piece deals that were made by the Gulf State Park, primarily in a muzzle goal states and Israel and now the US taking this action to to punish Iran for the big moment directly within the White House with the President and some others. When brother Brian was barely sign when the program actually sign that so it was at the moment moment in Middle East history because by increasing the sanctions going to mention what it's doing is bringing very quickly.
I believe you see some major action. Maybe even the end of this week or next week on other countries coming on board with the Abraham cut the court and that is a game changer in the Middle East. A complete game changer. So I think we have to be very cognizant of how significant this is world history, Middle East peace, but also another move by the President to do an unorthodox thing when he moved to the embassy to Jerusalem people to isolate Israel in the Middle East next done just the opposite. And I think ultimately for the Palestinian people to be better.
She said the sanctions I Iran is not to be happy, but this this target summertime unless with the same data targets, not just their nuclear program, but there missile program and even conventional arms so really what it's about is also Iran not have the capability to send out weapons to terror groups like Hezbollah and Hamas in the court.
The biggest that's how the proxy work have been engaged by Iran using the proxy in Lebanon in a course on loss in the Gaza Strip that you Iran and the Iranian revolution regarding those governments and those individuals of those terror groups as proxy. That's over, I'm not my faith over there to try to do it now so significant blow. It's so different a meter for an entire week shape mentally so I'm very very encouraging the dog and get back to report that which very exciting our marketing as well. But that was a very big day yesterday on that on the Abraham Cordes relates to the Iranian think it'll increase the air be a grandma court.
Yeah, and more and more to it would take to join the steadily busy and not try and move around in Washington so let me go to West Smith, retired Col. West Smith & Wesson the significance of this this administration. The moment they could put in the snapback measures in place. I guess Iran even increasing the sanctions as well. So some of these are UN sanctions. Others are sanctions. The US is putting on as you said is significant is not only their nuclear program and by the way they claim to have enough material because of violating the JCP away which other nations are still a part of them were not. They say they have enough material for three nuclear weapons, most Intel people don't think that's the case, but Ron is is a threat to the region to the to the wider world and certainly to the United States, which they see as the great Satan. And so these these sanctions are very very important for the security virtually everyone everywhere and, in actuality, Iran is helping President trumps Middle East program's plan simply by doing what they do, which is being nation that violates human rights that exports terror that seeks to note because of people in that part of the world.
They are the chief threat not only as I said to the wider world to the region. They are the main threat to the Gulf states, which is part of the reason that Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates on the Abraham accords, and as the President said in your dad is indicated. We look for more countries to do that because Iran continues to be their own worst enemy and they continue to be a threat to the region and as long as they do that. I think more and more countries in the region will understand that Israel and the United States are not the threat that Iran is and so this is a very very important thing one thing, parenthetically, also like to mention which is crazy as it sounds, it's true, and that is Joe Biden has been criticizing the President for our policies on Iran and he has promised. If he is reelected that he will actually re-sign reenter the Iran nuclear deal. The JCP away which is absolutely crazy, but that he swears he will do that as well, swears where she will do that you're finally living around the that the room if you will, virtually because it got Dan and Andy in Washington DC. This idea that we got the present United States and Sec. Pompeo at that yes and after the present address the you in today with this happen before that putting that sanctions back on Iran's pro-nuclear program back on their conventional arms programs as well and missile programs and not individuals.
And yet, we got a candidate running for Prez United States and the other major parties can be either him or Donald Trump is an ex-President said he wants to go right back into that nuclear deal fan and Andy and what happens in a time where that region is experiencing more peace and they haven't for before because of the overarching strategy. Jordan, you got a pursuit you think you gotta give other people on the ground in opportunity and in a belief that there is hope for an economic future while also showing that you will use the hefted the United States to stand up against their enemies. So it's gotta be both sides of it. Jordan just quickly. These sanctions on the other snapback state sanctions that were rooted in UN authority, but multiple layers of statutory sanctions that were available to the President. He has come back at this so repeatedly to take another bite at the apple with if the Iranian regime does not realize he serious by now they never will. And I loved it. The end of the statement or he talked about how it was to give the Iranian people an opportunity for an optimistic future. Quite frankly, I would like to see other candidate on the other side for four writers and Biden for the good of the world Jordan he should come on board, but he won't. Yeah me. I think that again and the only are you on this.
This year I did it. Joe Biden wants to go right back into this deal.
Even though it's see that getting out of the deal and making these unilateral deals, bilateral deals, trilateral deals is working in the Middle East at least every think you build on your predecessor if if he is the express unites that you build on your predecessor success and in a but doesn't like they want of course give Donald Trump any credit which means they build the be willing to screw up the Middle East again. No, they're not going to give Donald Trump any credit for what he did and what is done is tremendous and historic and present by VP Biden is determined to pursue his own course. That said, by John Kerry earlier said gloom and doom we withdraw from the nuclear arrangement with Aranda to be the worst thing in the world is in the worst thing in the world that Bahrain you've got the United Arab Emirates are going to have him on in Hampstead then you can have Morocco you can have all these air base countries, Arab incline countries who are going to join together with Abraham, accords, and have peace with Israel, but they'll never ever give President from credit for that, under any circumstance whatsoever. Don't look forward in them both to get a second half-hour coming up will talk Supreme Court as well.
Of course he calls it 164 30 went to sign a petition, fill that seat ACLJ.or be right back.
The second half-hour on the front lines, protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena on justice is on your side. If you're already a member. Thank you. If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us, ACLJ.org, where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ live from Washington DC and now live within you go around this room. I guess you yes I mean I but your personal fates. I believe in. I guess that Doug would does it support is this is a preview that was just a preview, because whether or not Diane Feinstein. If it is a becoming very difficult to bear than in and somewhere someone again person of faith. She tried that line I don't think it will be that line exactly, but fan I think we are. I've said war war if you thought the selection was a war. Here's a war within the war. A major battle. I even call you to major battles not for this is a war, a second war. This war for this report.
Even though we know we have the votes they are going to try and destroy this person and people do need to prepare for that they are going to try and destroy this person because Chuck Schumer said this. Let's play it really the only way to stop this up seat from being filled by Donald Trump.
The Republican senators before the election or before the next President sworn in, whoever that is, is by Republicans take a listen structure Republican Senate majority have no right to fill in no right. There's only one way one way for this chamber to retain its dignity and that is for four brave Senate Republicans to commit to rejecting any nominee until the next President's install lab for Chuck Schumer using the word dignity is the least dignified major political leader may be in a country such a political hack. I mean, this guy will say whatever he has to say threaten Supreme Court justices on the steps. The Supreme Court, and that you know better watch out Cavanagh better watch out course. It's coming for you at what you know what the party of women right is going to we been told by the presence could be a woman is nominated is going to try destroy a woman's life and but he did admit in their fan that even though they have no right to do it.
The only way to stop and visit for Republicans decide he's right. And that does not appear to be the case will he's wrong as a matter of fact, according to article 2, section 2 of the Constitution which gives the Senate this role. And if that role is to mean anything the Senate has to be willing to go forward or not go forward. According to their own wishes.
He's also going to be wrong as a matter of practice Jordan because the United States Senate is going to confirm this nominee. I feel confident that but I see even so Jordan now before we have the nominee before we have a hearing. I do think it's important for people to realize just how personal and petty. It's gonna be all you have to do is look back at the Cavanaugh hearings to know it and Jordan look I went. When the issue of faith comes up or frankly just during Sen. Feinstein's time since she's the ranking member of the committee. I think the nominee no matter who it is, should say something along the lines of, you know what my faith does inform my desire to be a public servant. In fact, that's one of the main reasons I'm willing to be a public servant, and you know what Jordan, if it were me, and I would not were on that stand I would close my response by saying I pray each day that the dogma lives ladder in me today than it did yesterday. Yeah I mean you know it maybe that some of the senators would have some kind of like moments in their life or they realize you don't just use religion from politics, whether they're going into a black church in and I'm sure Diane Feinstein finds the dogma quickly. You and same Chuck Schumer of the start start clap and sway it but you know when it's a Republican nominee up there no swaying, no clapping. The dogmas bad.
So again the picking and choosing of the religious faith. It's disgusting. They are disgusting. On the other side of the aisle, especially those senators and the leadership there.
Some are just partisan actors. You get what you get it, you know that they're honest about you getting it what you voted for, but the leadership gross Nancy Pelosi the robot try to figure out you know what quiver she's get what she's got her quiver versus using language from the quivers and arrows and about this here in the house and the Constitution gives you no role to play in.
And in this report. Nomination process doesn't matter how vibrating you are Nancy you have zero. The Constitution said you're not important for this and no one in the houses great members of the house. I think Republican members understand the support the efforts of the present sitters said this is not this is not their job to get a lot of important jobs to do that. She's not doing by the way the American people focus your time on covert really Nancy let the Senate do its job will be back in Jay Sekulow life challenges facing America is freedom's or constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontlines projecting your freedoms and rights in court in Congress and in the public arena and exceptional track record of success. Here's the bottom line we could not do more work without your support, 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.
Thank you. Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ God where you can learn more about her 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 defend the rights of 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 activists ramifications.
40 years later, when Obama care me in many ways your membership is empowering the right question mission life today online/Jay Sekulow calls right here. Let's go to Carolyn in Texas online for care looking for whole year of the year.
Absolutely clear. I don't have a problem with Pres., you have a problem with billing the state. I do have a concern about brushing somebody we seen this happen where conservatively what we think are conservative to the Supreme Court and then they just go rogue. We don't check this person had. If we don't get done properly and we just hurry up and write somebody 24 hours that the concern there. Remember all these folks a been on the list.
So we've all regarding new groups like ours matter.
Dress the moment have been highly vetting these individuals.
There are some we like more than others.
I will I will tell you that. But do what you do.
This comparison as well. Carolyn because here's here's the reality we live in. If this seat isn't filled Joe Biden could become present and he will fill the seat. Whoever he puts there will be worse.
Much worse than anyone on present trumps list and it's not that everyone on that list excites me the same way I meant to be quite honest, but we do have to think about this nomination. That way, that every nomination but this one because it comes right on the heels of the election.
We have a Republican majority.
For now and let's see present truck gets reelected, but the Senate flips you wouldn't get one of the more conservative nominees through Chuck Schumer's the Majority Leader Nancy I think you just have to look at it that way. Think about this time you can really do a comparison of what would you do Joe Biden pack and anybody is better on our list and who, Joe Biden would pick and he's not even he's refusing to put out a list. You know why his list would be so outside the mainstream is people on there would've written crazy things about sex. It would been written crazy things about who knows what. You know what the Constitution guarantees and of course it they don't think it guarantees a religious liberty but the liberty to everything else except you know except for limiting your speech rights Carolyn are speech rights ACLJ so here's what to put out a list because he knows there's something to be so far outside the mainstream can't put a moderate up left go nuts. They bird they burn his house down you know that they go Joe Biden's house in Delaware and start shouting and screaming like they're doing to Republican Sen. so he wanted to put a list up, but I think Harry what's important to address here is that we are vetting these folks, we have time. There 50 day in a 43 days whatever it is that is plenty of time when these were people who were already listed by Pres. Trump who already have either long careers and written a lot or have been on the bench. I think your precisely correct and it's important to note that no other President has put forward a list of candidates before any vacancy row so that has given the American people. Huge amounts of time to look at each and every candidate. The Federalist Society has looked these candidates.
Our organization has looked at these candidates, many of these individuals were on the list have already been confirmed within the last 2 to 5 years by the United States Senate.
So each and every candidate in my opinion, that is on the list has already been vetted and I agree with you. Certainly I have my own favorites and and I think many individuals who wrote there are listeners they may have their favorites but I don't think there's a huge risk in nominating anyone of the individuals whose President prompts list right considering the moment reliving it for me. I think for Carolyn's call that that's what's important for members that were not. This is not a normal nomination the sense that the timing is not normal. The election is is right on the around 1/4. It has happened as we talked about 29 vacancies in election years.
The parties, the same as the present. That's 1929 times the Senate has confirmed 17 of those nominees out of 19, so we too were not the part when the Senate was of different party only to got through.
Of the 10. During that time. So we have about 90% when it's the same party in control chance here to get through and went. You have about 80% chance you won't get through with your parties not in control but it's 100% that the President has nominated always someone even Obama nominated Mayor Carlin you what if an Joe Biden is not nominated Mayor Carlin nominates a middle-of-the-road moderate.
He's going to nominate that's why will put up the list. Some liberal out of the mainstream. So will oppose so we think will be totally horrendous for the court that Susie be nominating filling the seat with and that's why I think you could say on this nomination and not all nominations by the present trumps good dislikes was really conservative, maybe even better than the sub selections is Artie made you believe that, though, could you believe it could be better than the Cavanaugh better than a bed of the course. Is it possible it's possible Tybalt.
I will tell that is well… Try to put down courses or I.
Cavanaugh with Rachel to get on his ticket is to get on the court literally with your personal help to go on to that court, but he is there, but then I was will to go to you because this idea. If we we've got the votes were to fill this seat we will do the vetting and let me tell you something.
The Democrats will to if they can find anything rigorous about this person will try to throw it out there, but I think for people like Carolyn, the whole British things are to throw out about our nominees is that is it there to religious to Christian thereto Catholic that there are two questionable on Roe versus Wade thereto questionable on the Second Amendment. You know that the anti-got it off into two profamily, no question about it and I do think Carolyn's on the right track to answered to ask this question, but I think he her fears can be easily assuaged by the wise move, the Pres. Trump made in putting out this list of so many people that's been there had been recently confirmed because Jordan looked there. There is a concern maybe when you have a tight timeline that you might make a mistake.
That is why the four judges that are on this list that apparently are down to his final choice. Of course we don't know that for sure but that's what the reporting is Jordan all of them have been through this process in the last three years. Amy Connie Barrett was confirmed in October 2017. Joan Larson was confirmed in 2017 Allison Rushing was confirmed in March 2019 and Barbara Legome was confirmed in November 2019. Jordan it's not like they were confirmed 10 or 20 years ago by a different Senate that is where the process was not as political. They were confirmed by this Senate. These senators in a political environment where was just as hostile as it is today, so I II like Carolyn's question. I like what she's thinking about, but I would ask her to connect it to what with with what Pres. Trump is already done. He has told you he's getting give you a nominee that this Senate has already looked at that they've Artie vetted and that they have Artie found acceptable. Jordan is can be awfully difficult politically and really just legitimately for them to reverse course on one of these nominees now absolutely going to Andy on this as well and then back to Harriet to take your focus to execute withholding of Tom's context. Connie held a long time and I know Steve you have as well to Tom Nally to Steve apply we come back to this rate but to think it gives call 1-800-684-3110 top welcome to Jay Sekulow Lodge on the air. Thank you. Like all the octuplet question what it like that that it they get up get this one over the goal line right now. They can't wait and I love your analogy about the war within a war exactly what it more exciting. Although they present not been elected from the standpoint that the light long appointment and be huge. As we move forward with Debbie and that I just can't understand the two senators McCartt Michalski and I collated and why they are opposed to that. I know there probably not get a boat yet. If you have any insight that the sleep why they all know they could change their mind in a couple of days and I'll let you a week from today we have the debate.
I think I think if they have the debate that could be a huge turning point for Trump just based on health or Biden is going to show in that debate.
They like to get too far ahead of us also like assuming Joe Biden's rough time. The debate, but I also know that even Chris Wallace is moderator Chris Wallace. I don't really trust to be honest with you all the people on Fox news. I trust in the least, and to feel try and prop up Joe Biden. You watch just like anybody who wants to be part of the mainstream media. I think he desperately was to be considered part of that Chris Wallace with his Sunday show that gets aired on the regular Fox stations as well. Now I get excited.
There's always issues there so don't don't ever take away the power of the moderator Joe Biden is can be.
Karen dissipates that the thing to do. Even though the moderators to the American people and they can't prop about that much is it to make a lot of you speak a lot and use it make a lot of sentences that were that the words don't make sense like it is just gibberish. A lot of that will happen, but he'll be bringing his toughest game possibly try to as well. I think aunt on Michalski and Collins College is making a horrendous political calculation thinking this could help her in Maine were she's down like 1516 points.
Most balls in her Senate race. There is that help her get Republicans out to vote for her and be encouraged and excited to try and keep her in the US and that's what she's area keep trying to keep her in the USA, which will still never count their idea is that what we should do it until after the election only when a society can agree 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 a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold mission will show you how. Personally, publication includes all major and sealed fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later, when Obama care me in many ways, your membership is empowering the right question mission life today online/challenges facing Americans is freedom. Constitutional rights are under attack or consider for Law and Justice on the frontlines checking your freedoms defending your rights courts in Congress and the public exceptional track record of success.
Here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, 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. Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ God where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ1684 31 to talk to. So there you still have time to get a phone call right now to call 1-800-684-3110 were about to cease calling George about Chris on periscope. I thought this a good question around that the board if you will with everybody Chris on periscope or what good would it be if Joe Biden did list is space. I think for me to harried and then stand and anti-not for me. It would just prove my point which is that he what he is beholding to the left is a Trojan horse candidate.
He is not some moderate and in fact he is going to appoint people that are so outside the mainstream that beer is double trouble in the front campaign and Republicans barely show people look at who Joe Biden wants to put on the Supreme Court look at who he wants to make lifetime appointments with people who think you're weird for your mainstream lifestyle you not you outside the mainstream enough they be bizarre they be left-wing and he knows that, so he scared of putting that list out Harry. I think that is correct. I think Biden runs a huge risk by putting out a list. First, if he puts out a list. He runs the risk that he will be attacked by the left. If his nominees or potential nominees are not sufficiently left-wing. But then if he nominates or has a list of filled with left-wingers. He runs the risk of offending, middle-of-the-road and independent voters. One of the great things about Joe Biden, however, is his absence of courage, but he's also riven, deeply, with huge amounts of hypocrisy. So the safest course of action. I think for Joe Bob Biden is to think about putting out a list but never do it. Unite LME had a fan fan you not let me address the political side of the Dragon. I think you're absolutely right on the effect of it but II think that the President has effectively put the vice President in an unwinnable box because if he puts out the list.
It will look like the President forced him to do it and it is just pandering to the President if he doesn't put out the list during he just yields the political battlefield to the President has been very transparent on this.
The look I don't think the vice President can win by putting out a list but I think the President has outmaneuvered him on this because he what he loses if he does and he loses if he doesn't know. I think you're right to think that he is since he loses because using excited so basically as if he doesn't meet LME to get any thoughts or any of Stephen's call yeah that's exactly right.
Jordan can win either way.
If he puts out a listing and that the left and says what are you talking about. These people are not left us enough and not liberal enough. These are not burn the city and protest the world and they will then want to keep guns and so forth under the Second Amendment. So he alienates that his is his left-wing base, the Sandy Cortez is of the world and then if he so he's not and he and he would've taken the President challenging it would look like you count out the what President trumpeted so and that he remain silent which is what he does all the time. He doesn't talk. He just sits there. He will do that.
I guess you could go to the failures could be a lot like pauses like client.
Sounds like you get hit by trumpets could be like her, in light may be helping him put together words that are like they they make sense together but they have no right nothing to do with responding to why he got this thing present. Trump is not something anyone wants debate. I mean, Republicans even on something of like if you debated most of that was kind of like Monday just for debate purposes, he would hit you so hard to win the debate that you got it you have Bill take and deliver a punch so aggressively so quickly are on your feet, or you knock down back down before he even started. That is the problem for Joe Biden sure he's prepping.
I know he's a professional lifetime politician.
So again, don't downplay too much. Don't downplay too much and never forget the role of the moderator and Chris Wallace no fainter present from past is clear that guy has an animus present.
Trump and someone who does a lot of Fox news and thinks Fox's great job on a lot of things, Chris Wallace, I'm not a fan of been honest about that on this broadcast number of times that you that's okay in a Inuit world. If we were able to have the freedom of thought assume so far. Still, we are I Steve in Georgia online one. Steve, welcome to Jay Sekulow live lives. Whoever came up with that idea in 2016. I think it was brilliant. Looking back on it and for Trump to go with the brilliant decision on his part. But here's my actual question for today Jordan. This nominee is to have to go through what Cavanaugh last last time with these false, outrageous, made-up charges, what is to prevent the Republicans to say look your behave in a responsible, you're not taken a serious turn our nominee again were not putting up with her working to go to a vote to nominate is that possible based on the procedures and do you think the Republicans have the stomach to do some thank you for handling the question yeah I think you bring up some really good Steve that if they go Cavanaugh stomach.
This personal attack with these unsubstantiated nuts who come out of the these nutty people and again that's what you think of Crazy people who would go out they would ruin their lives to buy the way you know who like cross side looking into the camera and then try to make these allegations in whose house for that where that think they just say enough with this will go right to the vote. They can't have to go to your committee here. Here's article 2, section 2, the requirement said that the Pres. shall nominate, and by and with the advice of the Senate, shall appoint judges of the Supreme Court. Jordan all of the talking here about rules and precedents. Article 1, section 5 sets out that the Senate gets to set its own rules and precedent changes over time. When they change the rules now look, I think they're going to go through committee Jordan but I will tell you that they're knocking to tolerate the shenanigans that happened with Judge Cavanaugh that will clearly be an effort to filibuster in committee of the just boil it down to this, Jordan. The Senate is given their power by the Constitution of the United States and they set their own rules. If they decide that the best way to proceed with this is to skip the hearing go right to the floor and then let that the members of the Senate vote, they can absolutely do it you absolutely so that there is your answer.
Steve and I think listen we start here language like this again out of Diane Feinstein. Whoever the nominee is a Startac in their religious faith. So if it's Amy Barrett deftly on the front list of the suppressions at the White House estate was reported. So I mean she was there another might be other potential nominees to get spotted there this week as well. She might've been the first of of meeting of 45 people present me with so don't read too much into everything. She's definitely a front runner camera try to hide the ball. He's definitely a front row. She was a front runner already in the past. If they start happening again.
I say Lindsay shut it down, go to a vote.
We have the votes put them on the court goodbye will go to the election by 46 read your speech is the conclusion one draws is that that dogma lives loudly within you and that's of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for four years in this country. I mean, this is my issue this you think Diane finds it was ceded to a Jew to think she take her to Jewish Muslim to Islamic to hinder your two Hindu if that happens again fan I say shut it down. Lindsay shut it down. If we tried to have the hearings we try to act like normal with obviously we can't because either nuts. On the other side would not have character assassination that they can replay over about these people forever and try ruin their lives where they can't really responses in the go, quite onto the court. We just have a vote, and if you're the nominee and you get attacked. That way you think they thank you very much Sen. that's one of the goals of my life. I take it as a complement to write Jordan, the committee chairman at that point they should move on and every senator should write folks, we will get the fathers very closely know we will face the okay sign our petition ACLJ.org fill that seat we got the votes to do it. Let's get it done ACLJ.ACLJ on the front lines, protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member.
